Codorus Valley Bancorp, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2019 Earnings

YORK, Pa., April 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Codorus Valley Bancorp, Inc. (Codorus Valley, or the Corporation) (CVLY), parent company of PeoplesBank, A Codorus Valley Company (PeoplesBank), today announced net income of $4.1 million or $0.43 per share basic and diluted, for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, as compared to net income of $4.1 million or $0.44 per share basic and $0.43 per share diluted, for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

“Earnings for the first quarter 2019 compared to the same period in 2018 were basically flat,” stated Larry J. Miller, Chairman, President/CEO.  “Due to the rising interest rate environment, interest income increased approximately $2.3 million, however interest expense increased a similar amount ($2.1 million).”  Miller added, “Management has implemented steps to improve Codorus Valley’s cost of funds, enhanced its balance sheet management and has improved operational efficiency.”  Per Miller, “heretofore specific performing credits have indicated some weakness which required establishing specific reserves to those credits, which further required an increase in the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses.”

The Corporation’s net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $15.5 million, an increase of $0.2 million or 1.3 percent when compared to the net interest income of $15.3 million for the same period in 2018.  The Corporation’s tax-equivalent net interest margin was 3.69 percent for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, a decrease of 5.1 percent when compared to the tax-equivalent net interest margin of 3.89 percent for the same period in 2018.  The decrease was attributed to a temporary increase in balance sheet liquidity, a flat yield curve and an increase in loans identified as nonaccrual.

The provision for loan losses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $1.1 million compared to $0.2 million for the same period in 2018.  The Corporation’s nonperforming assets ratio was 1.95 percent as of March 31, 2019, an increase from the nonperforming assets ratio as of December 31, 2018 of 1.67 percent.  The increased provision expense in the first quarter of 2019 was primarily attributed to approximately $1.1 million of specific loan loss reserves established during the quarter, provision related to net loan growth during the quarter, net charge-offs of $113,000 and the net impact of adjustments made to certain qualitative factors and the unallocated reserve.  

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2019 was $3.2 million, which remained the same as the first quarter of 2018. 

Noninterest expense was $12.6 million for the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 5.3 percent, as compared to noninterest expense of $13.3 million for the first quarter of 2018.  Lower personnel costs and charitable donations accounted for the majority of the decrease. 

Income tax expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was $1.1 million versus $1.0 million for the same period in 2018.
