Balance Sheet and Liquidity Highlights

  • Loans totaled $3.5 billion as of September 30, 2021 reflecting an increase of $165.3 million, or 4.9%, from September 30, 2020, as a result of $210.4 million, or 6.7%, of net organic growth, primarily driven by the Corporation's continued expansion in the Cleveland, Buffalo and Ridge View regions and Private Banking division, and an increase in syndicated lending activities of approximately $92.5 million, partially offset by a $137.6 million decrease in PPP-related loans.

    • Loans at September 30, 2021, excluding the impact of PPP-related loans, reflected net growth of $209.5 million, or 6.5% (8.7% annualized), from December 31, 2020, as discussed in the "Executive Summary" section above.

  • Deposits totaled $4.6 billion as of September 30, 2021, an increase of $570.9 million, or 14.2%, from September 30, 2020, as a result of the increase in deposits across all of the Corporation's regions, as well as increases in deposits in its Private Banking division.

    • At September 30, 2021, total deposits increased $411.9 million, or 9.8% (13.2% annualized), from December 31, 2020, as a result of organic growth and the impact of government stimulus initiatives.

Customer Support Strategies and Loan Portfolio Profile

  • As of September 30, 2021, the Corporation had outstanding $89.2 million in PPP loans, or 869 PPP loan relationships, at a rate of 1.00%, and deferred PPP processing fees of approximately $3.8 million. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Corporation recognized $2.4 million and $6.8 million in deferred PPP processing fees ("PPP-related fees"), respectively. The outstanding balance of PPP loans at September 30, 2021 was (i) $522 thousand, or 23 loans from the Corporation's participation in the PPP in 2020, and (ii) $88.6 million, or 846 loans, from the Corporation’s participation in the PPP in the first nine months of 2021.

  • The Corporation also deferred loan payments for its commercial and consumer customers, as determined on a case-by-case basis by the financial needs of each customer. As of September 30, 2021, loans with deferred loan payment arrangements, totaled $24.0 million, or 0.7% of total loans outstanding, consisting of eight loans, totaling $23.9 million, for which principal and interest were deferred, and one loan, totaling $20 thousand, for which principal only was deferred.

    • Residential mortgage loans – 3 loans, totaling $602 thousand; and

    • Consumer loans – 1 loan, totaling $9 thousand.

  • The Corporation tracks lending exposure by industry classification to determine potential risk associated with industry concentrations, if any, that could lead to additional credit loss exposure. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Corporation has determined the Hotels/Motels and Restaurants/Fast Foods industries represent a potentially higher level of credit risk, as many of these customers have incurred a significant, negative impact to their businesses as a result of the pandemic. At September 30, 2021, the Corporation had loan concentrations for these industries as follows:

    • Hotels/Motels – $199.7 million, or 5.8% of total loans outstanding, excluding PPP-related loans; and

Other significant factors that contributed to the increase included mortgage banking, income from investments in SBIC funds, card processing and interchange income from increased business activity as well as an increase in net realized and unrealized gains on trading securities.

The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily attributable to the change in mix of taxable and tax-exempt activities.

  • Income tax expense was $10.0 million, representing a 18.8% effective tax rate, and $5.5 million, representing a 18.0% effective tax rate, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Capital

  • As of September 30, 2021, the Corporation’s total shareholders’ equity was $437.7 million, an increase of $21.8 million, or 5.2%, from September 30, 2020 primarily as a result of growth in organic earnings, partially offset by the adoption of CECL, a decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income and payment of common and preferred stock dividends to the Corporation's common and preferred shareholders during the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

  • As of September 30, 2021, with the exception of the leverage ratio remaining unchanged at 8.11%, all of the Corporation’s regulatory capital ratios increased from December 31, 2020.

  • As of September 30, 2021, the Corporation’s ratio of tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible common equity to tangible assets of 7.56% and 6.45%, respectively, reflected the impact of approximately $85.4 million in PPP-related loans as well as the Corporation's significant excess liquidity.

Such known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the statements, include, but are not limited to, (i) the duration and scope of the COVID-19 pandemic and the local, national and global impact of COVID-19; (ii) actions governments, businesses and individuals take in response to the pandemic; (iii) the speed and effectiveness of vaccine and treatment developments and deployment; (iv) variations of COVID-19, such as the Delta variant, and the response thereto, (v) the pace of recovery when the COVID-19 pandemic subsides; (vi) changes in general business, industry or economic conditions or competition; (vii) changes in any applicable law, rule, regulation, policy, guideline or practice governing or affecting financial holding companies and their subsidiaries or with respect to tax or accounting principles or otherwise; (viii) adverse changes or conditions in capital and financial markets; (ix) changes in interest rates; (x) higher than expected costs or other difficulties related to integration of combined or merged businesses; (xi) the effects of business combinations and other acquisition transactions, including the inability to realize our loan and investment portfolios; (xii) changes in the quality or composition of our loan and investment portfolios; (xiii) adequacy of loan loss reserves; (xiv) increased competition; (xv) loss of certain key officers; (xvi) deposit attrition; (xvii) rapidly changing technology; (xviii) unanticipated regulatory or judicial proceedings and liabilities and other costs; (xix) changes in the cost of funds, demand for loan products or demand for financial services; and (xx) other economic, competitive, governmental or technological factors affecting our operations, markets, products, services and prices. Such developments could have an adverse impact on CNB's financial position and results of operations. For more information about factors that could cause actual results to differ from those discussed in the forward-looking statements, please refer to the “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” sections of and the forward-looking statement disclaimers in CNB’s annual and quarterly reports.

The forward-looking statements are based upon management’s beliefs and assumptions and are made as of the date of this press release. CNB undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements included in this press release or to update the reasons why actual results could differ from those contained in such statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by law.

(1) Management uses non-GAAP financial information in its analysis of the Corporation’s performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations, enhance comparability of results of operations with prior periods and show the effects of significant gains and charges in the periods presented. The Corporation’s management believes that investors may use these non-GAAP measures to analyze the Corporation’s financial performance without the impact of unusual items or events that may obscure trends in the Corporation’s underlying performance. This non-GAAP data should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Limitations associated with non-GAAP financial measures include the risks that persons might disagree as to the appropriateness of items included in these measures and that different companies might calculate these measures differently. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures is provided below (dollars in thousands, except per share data).

(2) Beginning with the quarter ended December 31, 2020 the Corporation adopted ASU 2016-13. Prior to the quarter ended December 31, 2020, the results were based on incurred loss methodology and these results have not been restated.

(3) Nonperforming TDR loans are also included in the balance of non-accrual loans in the previous table.

(4) Capital ratios as of September 30, 2021 are estimated.
