CORYDON, Ind., July 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: FCAP), the holding company for First Harrison Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $2.7 million or $0.82 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to $2.4 million or $0.73 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase in net interest income after provision for loan losses and noninterest income partially offset by an increase in noninterest expense.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $699,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020. Interest income decreased $241,000 when comparing the periods due to a decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 3.61% for the second quarter of 2020 to 2.87% for the second quarter of 2021 partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $834.1 million for the second quarter of 2020 to $1.02 billion for the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in the tax-equivalent yield was due to the Federal Open Market Committee lowering interest rates during March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and an increase in the average balance of federal funds sold. Federal funds sold increased primarily due to increased balances in deposit accounts from stimulus programs and normal deposit growth. Interest expense decreased $115,000 when comparing the periods due to a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities from 0.27% for the second quarter of 2020 to 0.16% for the second quarter of 2021. This was partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities from $607.9 million for the second quarter of 2020 to $730.5 million for the second quarter of 2021. As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread decreased from 3.34% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 to 2.71% for the same period in 2021.

Based on management’s analysis of the allowance for loan losses, no provision for loan losses was recorded for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 compared to $825,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The provision for loan losses was higher in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2021 due to changes to the qualitative factors within the Bank’s allowance for loan losses calculation related to uncertainties that surrounded the COVID-19 pandemic in the second quarter of 2020. The Bank recognized net recoveries of $9,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 compared to $68,000 in net charge-offs for the same period in 2020.

Noninterest income increased $232,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020. This was primarily due to ATM and debit card fees and service charges on deposit accounts increasing by $174,000 and $102,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods.

Noninterest expense increased $547,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020. This was primarily due to increases in compensation and benefits expense, professional fees and data processing expense by $240,000, $171,000 and $112,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods.

Income tax expense increased $92,000 for the second quarter of 2021 as compared to the second quarter of 2020 primarily due to an increase in taxable income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. As a result, the effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was 15.4% compared to 14.2% for the same period in 2020.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company reported net income of $5.7 million or $1.69 per diluted share compared to net income of $4.5 million or $1.35 per diluted share for the same period in 2020.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $773,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. Interest income decreased $623,000 when comparing the two periods, due to a decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 3.82% for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to 3.00% for the same period in 2021 partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $797.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to $988.0 million for the same period in 2021. Interest expense decreased $295,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.30% for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to 0.16% for the same period in 2021, while the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased from $589.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to $707.6 million for the same period in 2021. As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread decreased from 3.52% for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to 2.84% for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Based on management’s analysis of the allowance for loan losses, the provision for loan losses decreased from $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to $75,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The provision for loan loss was higher in 2020 compared to 2021 due to changes to the qualitative factors within the Bank’s allowance for loan losses calculation related to uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The Bank recognized net charge-offs of $63,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $173,000 for the same period in 2020.

Noninterest income increased $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2020. The increase was primarily due to a $427,000 unrealized gain on equity securities during the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to a $171,000 unrealized loss on equity securities during the same period in 2020. In addition, ATM and debit card fees and gains on loans sold increased $377,000 and $246,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods.

Noninterest expenses increased $529,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020. This was primarily due to increases in compensation and benefit expense, professional fees and data processing expense by $268,000, $236,000 and $125,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods.

Income tax expense increased $321,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020 resulting in an effective tax rate of 16.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to 14.9% for the same period in 2020. As discussed above, the increase in the effective tax rate is primarily due to an increase in taxable income.

Total assets increased $61.1 million to $1.08 billion at June 30, 2021 from $1.02 billion at December 31, 2020. Investment securities and cash and cash equivalents increased $72.0 million and $8.1 million, respectively, from December 31, 2020 to June 30, 2021 while net loans receivable decreased $15.6 million during the same period. Deposit growth funded the increase in assets as deposits grew $61.1 million from $900.5 million at December 31, 2020 to $961.6 million at June 30, 2021. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonaccrual loans, accruing loans 90 days or more past due, troubled debt restructurings on accrual status, and foreclosed real estate) increased from $3.2 million at December 31, 2020 to $3.3 million at June 30, 2021. Additionally, the Bank is participating in the Small Business Administration’s (“SBA’s”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), and has originated approximately $62.4 million of PPP loans, including $16.5 million in second-draw PPP loans originated during 2021. The Bank has received payoffs on $39.0 million of PPP loans from the SBA, and as of June 30, 2021 had $1.1 million remaining in deferred fees related to PPP loans.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED):

This presentation contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Management uses these “non-GAAP” measures in its analysis of the Company's performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow for better comparability with prior periods, as well as with peers in the industry who provide a similar presentation, and provide a further understanding of the Company's ongoing operations. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. The following table summarizes the non-GAAP financial measures derived from amounts reported in the Company's consolidated financial statements and reconciles those non-GAAP financial measures with the comparable GAAP financial measures.
