MANAGEMENT COMMENTS 

Rex L. Smith, III, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am delighted at the progress the Company made on numerous fronts in the third quarter.  The results are very encouraging both year over year and on a linked quarter basis.  Our rate of growth for loans and noninterest bearing deposits is better than expected for this time of year.  Net income continues on a strong positive path as it increased approximately 13% year over year.  Credit quality remains strong, and the change in OREO resulted from the push for final resolution of one of our oldest and largest non-performing loans. 

Smith added, "This quarter shows the value that remains in the PCI portfolio, as it continues to provide strong earnings. While not always consistent period to period, there is the potential for meaningful income to realize for many more years.  We have managed a flexible balance sheet that can continue to grow earnings in the forecasted rate environment, and we continue to focus on operating efficiencies."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Overview

Linked Quarter Basis
Net income of $4.6 million for the third quarter of 2019 was an increase of $1.1 million, or 30.2%, compared with net income of $3.5 million for the second quarter of 2019.  Earnings per common share were $0.21, basic, and $0.20, fully diluted, in the third quarter of 2019 compared with $0.16 basic and fully diluted for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The increase in net income on a linked quarter basis was primarily attributable to an increase of $1.4 million, or 11.8%, in net interest income, a decrease of $125,000 in provision for loan losses and an increase of $60,000 in noninterest income.  These net increases were offset by an increase of $239,000 in noninterest expenses and an increase of $296,000 in income tax expense.

Two separate items of note occurred during the quarter. First, a $1.1 million payoff of a loan within the PCI portfolio was received. The PCI portfolio contains six separate pools, two of which, due to the uncertain nature of the cash flows, have no carrying value. This $1.1 million payoff was in one of those pools, the Acquisition, Development and Construction (ADC) pool, resulting in the entire payment being interest income. The other item was the migration of a $4.0 million nonperforming loan, charged down by $200,000 and moved into the OREO category at $3.8 million. As a part of this transaction, the Bank paid delinquent real estate taxes in the amount of $624,000 on this property, all of which was expensed in the current quarter.

Year-Over-Year Nine Months
Net income was $11.7 million for the first nine months of 2019 compared with $10.3 million for the same period in 2018. This is an increase of $1.3 million, or 12.9%. Interest and dividend income increased by $5.4 million, or 12.4%, and noninterest income increased by $597,000, or 17.7%. Offsetting these increases to net income were increases of $3.0 million in interest expense, $1.2 million in noninterest expense, $125,000 in provision for loan losses and $376,000 in income tax expense. Earnings per common share, basic and fully diluted, were $0.52 for the first nine months of 2019 compared with $0.47, basic, and $0.46, fully diluted, for the first nine months of 2018.

Year-Over-Year Quarter
Net income of $4.6 million for the third quarter of 2019 was an increase of $658,000, or 16.6%, compared with third quarter 2018 net income of $4.0 million. Interest and dividend income increased by $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared with the same period in 2018, driven by interest and fees on loans, which increased $1.3 million, and interest and fees on PCI loans, which increased $1.1 million, primarily from the $1.1 million payment noted above. Noninterest income increased by $300,000 year over year. Offsetting these increases was an increase of $939,000 in noninterest expenses, an increase of $877,000 in interest expense and an increase of $142,000 in income tax expense.

The following table presents summary income statements for the three months ended September 30, 2019, June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018 and the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018.

Net Interest Income

Linked Quarter Basis
Net interest income was $13.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 compared with $12.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.  This is an increase of $1.4 million, or 11.8%.

Interest and dividend income on a linked quarter basis increased $1.6 million, or 9.8%, to $17.5 million for the third quarter of 2019.  Interest income with respect to loans, excluding PCI loans, increased $547,000, or 4.3%, during the third quarter when compared with the second quarter of 2019.  This increase was attributed to continued loan growth on a linked quarter basis. The average balance of loans, excluding PCI loans, increased $26.0 million, or 10.3%, on an annualized basis. The yield on loans increased, from 5.01% in the second quarter of 2019 to 5.04% in the third quarter of 2019. Interest income with respect to PCI loans was $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2019 and $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2019. The increase in income in the PCI portfolio was driven by a $1.1 million payoff of a loan in the ADC portfolio. Interest income on securities decreased $49,000 on a linked quarter basis and the average balance on the portfolio declined $3.5 million.

Securities income equaled $1.9 million on a tax-equivalent basis for the third quarter of 2019 compared with $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2019.  The tax-equivalent yield on the securities portfolio was 3.17% in the third quarter of 2019 compared with a tax-equivalent yield of 3.23% in the second quarter of 2019. Tax-exempt securities balances declined by $9.5 million, on average, during the third quarter of 2019. Call activity has increased in both taxable and tax-exempt securities due to the current rate environment, and $2.8 million in municipal bonds were called during the third quarter of 2019. This is having a negative impact on the yield realized on the portfolio.

The combination of various tax-equivalent yields within the asset mix resulted in a yield on earning assets of 5.23% for the third quarter of 2019 compared with 4.88% in the second quarter of 2019. The receipt of cash basis income on the PCI portfolio, due to improved economic conditions, subsequent to the acquisition date in 2009, has resulted in better than forecasted performance and may produce recurring but unpredictable income over the remaining life of these loans.  Excluding the $1.1 million payment, the yield on the PCI portfolio would have been 13.81% compared with the actual yield of 26.07%. The yield on earning assets would have been 4.90% compared with the actual yield of 5.23%. The interest spread would have been 3.41% compared with the actual interest spread of 3.74% and the net interest margin would have been 3.70% compared with the actual net interest margin of 4.02%.

Interest expense of $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2019 was an increase of $135,000, or 3.5%, on a linked quarter basis.  Interest on deposits increased $109,000, or 3.0%.  Interest on borrowed funds increased by $26,000, or 8.2%.  Average interest bearing deposits decreased by $8.2 million, or 0.8%. The cost of interest bearing deposits increased from 1.41% in the second quarter of 2019 to 1.45% in the third quarter of 2019. The increased rates paid on interest bearing deposits and on short-term borrowings resulted in an increase in the cost of interest bearing liabilities from 1.45% in the second quarter of 2019 to 1.49% in the third quarter of 2019.

With the changes in net interest income noted above, the tax-equivalent net interest margin increased from 3.69% in the second quarter of 2019 to 4.02% in the third quarter of 2019. Likewise, the interest spread increased from 3.43% to 3.74% on a linked quarter basis.

Year-Over-Year Nine Months
Net interest income was $37.5 million for the first nine months of 2019, or an increase of $2.5 million, or 7.0%, when comparing the first nine months of 2018 and 2019.  The yield on earning assets was 5.02% for the first nine months of 2019 compared with 4.67% for the first nine months of 2018. Interest and fees on loans of $38.2 million in the first nine months of 2019 was an increase of $4.1 million compared with $34.1 million for the same period in 2018.  Interest and fees on PCI loans, including the $1.1 million ADC payment noted above, increased $940,000 over this same time frame.  For the first nine months of 2019 compared with the same period in 2018, securities income increased $265,000. On a tax-equivalent basis the increase was $158,000. The average balance of tax-exempt securities declined $18.8 million, thus reducing the benefit received on a tax-equivalent basis on these securities. The tax-equivalent yield on the portfolio increased and was 3.17% for the first nine months of 2019 compared with 3.10% for the same period in 2018.

Interest expense of $11.6 million represented an increase of $3.0 million, or 34.6%, in the first nine months of 2019 compared with the same period in 2018. Average interest bearing liabilities increased $19.0 million, or 1.8%.  The cost of interest bearing liabilities increased from 1.09% for the first nine months of 2018 to 1.44% for the first nine months of 2019. Driving the increase was growth of $65.5 million, or 11.5%, in the average balance of time deposits, from $569.0 million for the first nine months of 2018 to $634.4 million for the same period in 2019. This growth in time deposits, as a result of higher rates, came partly from a shift away from savings and money market accounts, which experienced a decline of $13.2 million in average balances between the comparison periods. Additionally, time deposit growth included a shift out of FHLB and other borrowings, which reflected an average balance decline of $35.0 million, or 35.2%, over the two nine-month comparison periods.

The tax-equivalent net interest margin was 3.84% for the first nine months of 2019 compared with 3.76% for the first nine months of 2018. The yield on earning assets increased by 35 basis points over this time frame. The competition for funding, however, pushed the cost of interest bearing liabilities up an equal amount, 35 basis points, from 1.09% to 1.44%.  The net interest spread was 3.58% for the first nine months of each of 2018 and 2019. The net interest margin of 3.84% for the first nine months of 2019 is an increase from 3.76% for the first nine months of 2018. The net interest margin has been enhanced by growth in the average balance of noninterest bearing deposits of $18.2 million, or 11.9%, and in shareholders' equity of $17.6 million, or 13.8%. Excluding the $1.1 million ADC loan payment the yield on the PCI portfolio would have been 13.72%, the yield on earning assets would have been 4.91%, the interest spread would have been 3.47% and the net interest margin would have been 3.73%.

Year-Over-Year Quarter
Net interest income increased $1.4 million, or 12.0%, from the third quarter of 2018 to the third quarter of 2019. Net interest income was $13.4 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared with $12.0 million for the same period in 2018.  Interest and fees on loans increased by $1.3 million, or 10.9%, year over year, and was $13.2 million for the third quarter of 2019. Interest and fees on PCI loans of $2.3 million is an increase of $1.1 million, driven by the $1.1 million ADC payment. The average balance of loans, excluding PCI loans, was $965.8 million for the third quarter of 2018 and increased by $71.7 million, or 7.4%, in the third quarter of 2019. The yield on loans also increased, year over year, and was 4.89% in the third quarter of 2018 and increased by 15 basis points to 5.04% in the third quarter of 2019.

Interest income on securities of $1.8 million was a year-over-year decrease of $48,000. Interest income on securities, on a tax-equivalent basis, was $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2019, which was a decrease of $95,000 compared with the third quarter of 2018. This decrease was driven both by average balance and yield.  The average balance of the securities portfolio decreased $8.7 million year over year.  Additionally, on a tax-equivalent basis, the yield on investment securities decreased four basis points and was 3.17% in the third quarter of 2019 and 3.21% in the third quarter of 2018. 

Interest expense increased $877,000, or 27.7%, when comparing the third quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2018. Interest expense on deposits increased $999,000, or 37.0%, as the average balance of interest bearing deposits increased $39.9 million, or 4.1%.  The increase in deposit cost was driven by an increase in time deposit average balances, which increased $39.2 million, or 6.6%, year over year. The cost of time deposits increased from 1.56% to 2.06%, which resulted in an increase in the cost of total interest bearing deposits from 1.10% to 1.45%, over the same time frame. FHLB and other borrowings decreased, on average, $28.7 million year over year, and there was a slight increase in the rate paid, from 1.98% in the third quarter of 2018 to 1.99% in the third quarter of 2019.  Overall, the Bank's cost of interest bearing liabilities increased 31 basis points, from 1.18% in the third quarter of 2018 to 1.49% in the third quarter of 2019.

The tax-equivalent net interest margin increased 25 basis points, from 3.77% in the third quarter of 2018 to 4.02% in the third quarter of 2019.  Likewise, the interest spread increased from 3.58% to 3.74% over the same time period.  The increase in the margin was precipitated by the increase of $2.4 million in loan income, including the PCI loan payoff, and from an increase in the average balances in noninterest bearing deposits of $24.0 million and shareholders' equity of $19.7 million.

The following table compares the Company's net interest margin, on a tax-equivalent basis, for the three months ended September 30, 2019, June 30, 2019, September 30, 2018 and the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company records a separate provision for loan losses for its loan portfolio, excluding PCI loans, and the PCI loan portfolio.  There was no provision for loan losses on the loan portfolio, excluding PCI loans, during the third quarter of 2019 compared with $125,000 in provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2019 and no provision in the third quarter of 2018. The provision recognized in the second quarter of 2019 was due to loan growth of $26.3 million, or 2.6%, during the quarter and an uptick in delinquencies less than 90 days past due and still accruing interest. There was no provision for loan losses on the PCI loan portfolio during the first three quarters of 2019 or 2018.  Additional discussion of loan quality is presented below.
