Today, First Community Corporation (Nasdaq: FCCO), the holding company for First Community Bank, announced earnings and discussed the results of operations and the company's activities during the first quarter of 2021.

First Community reported net income for the first quarter of 2021 of $3.3 million with diluted earnings per common share of $0.43. This compares to net income and diluted earnings per common share of $3.4 million and $0.46, respectively, on a linked quarter basis and $1.8 million and $0.24 year-over-year, respectively. Pre-tax pre-provision earnings during the first quarter of 2021 were $4.3 million. This compares to pre-tax pre-provision earnings of $4.6 million for fourth quarter of 2020 and pre-tax pre-provision earnings of $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Cash Dividend and Capital

The Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend for the first quarter of 2021 of $0.12 per common share. This dividend is payable on May 18, 2021 to shareholders of record of the company's common stock as of May 4, 2021. First Community President and CEO, Mike Crapps commented, "The entire board is pleased that our performance enables the company to continue its cash dividend for the 77th consecutive quarter."

On April 12, 2021, the Company announced that its Board of Directors approved the repurchase of up to 375,000 shares of its common stock, which represents approximately 5% of the Company's 7,524,944 shares outstanding as of March 31, 2021. Under the repurchase plan, the Company may repurchase shares from time to time. Crapps noted, "This approved share repurchase provides us with some flexibility in managing capital going forward."

Each of the regulatory capital ratios for the bank exceed the well capitalized minimum levels currently required by regulatory statute. At March 31, 2021, the bank's regulatory capital ratios (Leverage, Tier I Risk Based and Total Risk Based) were 8.73%, 13.13%, and 14.26%, respectively. This compares to the same ratios as of March 31, 2020 of 9.91%, 13.35%, and 14.25%, respectively. As of March 31, 2021, the bank's Common Equity Tier One ratio was 13.13% compared to 13.35% at March 31, 2020. Further, the company's Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets ratio was 7.92% as of March 31, 2021 compared to 9.29% as of March 31, 2020.

Loan Portfolio Quality/Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses

The company's asset quality metrics as of March 31, 2021 remained sound. The non-performing asset ratio was 0.38% of total assets with $5.6 million in non-performing assets compared to 0.50% and $7.0 million at December 31, 2020. Loans past due 30 days or more represented only 0.04% of the loan portfolio, down from 0.23% on a linked quarter. The ratio of classified loans plus OREO is 9.90% of total bank regulatory risk-based capital at March 31, 2021. During the first quarter, the bank experienced net loan charge-offs of $8 thousand. Other Loans Especially Mentioned decreased $4.3 million on a linked quarter and Substandard Loans increased the same amount, the result of the reclassification of one loan relationship. Rated loans as a percent of total loans declined on a linked quarter from 1.84% to 1.80%.

Mr. Crapps noted, "As a way to help our many local businesses and individuals navigate the challenges created by the pandemic, we proactively offered payment deferrals for up to 90 days to our loan customers." The company reported that at its peak, there were payment deferments on loans totaling approximately $206.9 million (26.9% of the non-PPP loan portfolio). Loans in which payments were being deferred decreased to $8.7 million (1.1% of the non-PPP loan portfolio) at March 31, 2021. This is primarily the result of payments being restarted at the conclusion of their payment deferral period.

Even with strong credit quality metrics, due to the uncertainty of future credit losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on local businesses, the bank recorded $177 thousand in provision expense in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $276 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $1.075 million in the first quarter of 2020. The ratio of the Allowance for Loan Loss to total loans increased to 1.22% at March 31, 2021 from 1.03% at March 31, 2020. Mr. Crapps commented, "Our credit metrics continue to indicate the current strong quality of our loan portfolio. This combined with the significant reduction in loans with payments deferred is good news for our company. At the same time, there is much unknown about the continued economic impact of the pandemic; therefore, we continue to prepare our balance sheet and our resources for an uncertain future."

Balance Sheet

Total loans increased by $24.9 million during the first quarter of 2021. Non-PPP related loan growth including a related credit facility was $7.7 million in the first quarter of 2021, a 3.9% annualized growth rate. Non-PPP loan production was $40.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, which compares nicely to $33.5 million in the first quarter of 2020; however, growth was muted due to elevated payoffs and paydowns.

As of March 31, 2021, the bank had $64.7 million in PPP loans and a related credit facility on the balance sheet. First Community Bank President Ted Nissen noted, "As a community bank committed to the success of local businesses, we were pleased to be able to support our customers with access to the PPP funding. We are now in the process of working with our customers through the SBA forgiveness process. We anticipate this process will continue through year end and into 2022 while at the same time we wrap up the most recent round of PPP origination."

Total deposits were $1.271 billion at March 31, 2021 compared to $1.189 billion at December 31, 2020. Pure deposits, which are defined as total deposits less certificates of deposits, increased $84 million, to $1.143 billion at March 31, 2021 from $1.059 billion at December 31, 2020, a 31.7% annualized growth rate. The bank had no brokered deposits and no listing services deposits at March 31, 2021. Securities sold under agreements to repurchase, which are related to customer cash management accounts or business sweep accounts, were $60.3 million at March 31, 2021 compared to $40.9 million at December 31, 2020, an increase of 47.4%. Costs of deposits decreased on a linked quarter basis to 0.17% in the first quarter of 2021 from 0.20% in the fourth quarter of 2020. Cost of funds also decreased on a linked quarter basis to 0.21% from 0.24% in the fourth quarter of 2020. Mr. Nissen commented, "A strength of our bank has been and continues to be our low-cost deposit base. The strong momentum in deposit growth we experienced during 2020 has continued into 2021. We have continued to grow pure deposits while at the same time further reducing our cost of deposits."

Net Interest Income/Net Interest Margin

Net interest income was $10.6 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $10.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $9.4 million in the first quarter of 2020. The net interest margin, on a taxable equivalent basis, was 3.23% for the first quarter of 2021 compared to 3.31% in the fourth quarter of the 2020 and 3.55% in the first quarter of 2020. First quarter 2021 net interest margin, excluding PPP loans, on a tax equivalent basis was 3.16% compared to 3.28% in the fourth quarter of 2020. Mr. Shawn Jordan, Chief Financial Officer of First Community noted that "the excess liquidity in our balance sheet created by the additional stimulus programs weighed on our net interest margin during the first quarter of 2021".

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income for the first quarter of 2021 was $3.3 million, compared to $3.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $2.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. The mortgage line of business had fee revenue of $990 thousand in the first quarter of 2021 on production of $42.7 million. This compares to fee revenue and production year-over-year of $982 thousand and $35.3 million, respectively. While revenue was approximately equal to last year's first quarter result, the gain-on-sale margin in the first quarter of 2021 was limited as we worked on certain loans not yet sold, in an effort to resolve processing and delivery issues. As we work to improve our mortgage processing and delivery efficiency, we anticipate the gain-on-sale margin will recover to more normal levels.

Revenue from the financial planning and investment advisory line of business increased 18.0% on a linked quarter basis to $877 thousand for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $743 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2020. Year over year, revenue increased 38.3% from $634 thousand in the first quarter of 2020. Assets Under Management (AUM) were $519.3 million at March 31, 2021 up from $501.0 million at December 31, 2020, an increase of 3.7% and up from $319.7 million at March 31, 2020, an increase of $62.4%.

Other non-interest income for the quarter includes $100 thousand from the collection of a summary judgment related to a loan charged off at a bank, which the company subsequently acquired.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense decreased on a linked quarter basis to $9.540 million in the first quarter of 2021 from $9.651 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Salaries and employee benefit costs decreased $482 thousand on a linked quarter basis as the fourth quarter of 2020 included additional incentive accruals and higher mortgage commissions. Offsetting this were higher marketing expenses as this year's marketing plan is concentrated in the early part of the year.

Certain financial information presented above is determined by methods other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP financial measures include "Tangible book value per common share," "Tangible common shareholders' equity to tangible assets," "Return on average tangible common equity," "Pre-tax, pre-provision earnings," "Net interest margin excluding PPP Loans," "Net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis excluding PPP Loans," "Non-PPP Loans and Related Credit Facilities," and "Non-PPP Loans."

  • "Tangible book value per common share" is defined as total equity reduced by recorded intangible assets divided by total common shares outstanding.

  • "Tangible common shareholders' equity to tangible assets" is defined as total common equity reduced by recorded intangible assets divided by total assets reduced by recorded intangible assets.

  • "Return on average tangible common equity" is defined as net income on an annualized basis divided by average total equity reduced by average recorded intangible assets.

  • "Pre-tax, pre-provision earnings" is defined as net interest income plus non-interest income, reduced by non-interest expense.

  • "Net interest margin excluding PPP Loans" is defined as annualized net interest income less annualized interest income on PPP Loans divided by average earning assets less the average balance of PPP Loans.

  • "Net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis excluding PPP Loans" is defined as annualized net interest income on a tax-equivalent basis less annualized interest income on PPP Loans divided by average earning assets less the average balance of PPP Loans.

  • "Non-PPP Loans and Related Credit Facilities" is defined as Total Loans less PPP Related Credit Facilities and PPP Loans.

  • "Non-PPP Loans" is defined as Total Loans less PPP Loans.

  • "Non-PPP Loans and Related Credit Facilities Growth - Dollars" is calculated by taking the difference between two time periods compared for Total Loans less PPP Loans and PPP Related Credit Facilities. "Non-PPP Loans and Related Credit Facilities – Annualized Growth Rate" is calculated by (i) dividing "Non-PPP Loans and Related Credit Facilities Loan Growth - Dollars" by the number of days between the two time periods compared (ii) times the number of days in the year (iii) divided by the prior time period Non-PPP Loans and Related Credit Facilities balance.

  • "Non-PPP Loans Growth - Dollars" is calculated by taking the difference between two time periods compared for Total Loans less PPP Loans. "Non-PPP Loans – Annualized Growth Rate" is calculated by (i) dividing "Non-PPP Loans Loan Growth - Dollars" by the number of days between the two time periods compared (ii) times the number of days in the year (iii) divided by the prior time period Non-PPP Loans balance.

Our management believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful because they enhance the ability of investors and management to evaluate and compare our operating results from period-to-period in a meaningful manner. Non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP.
