The Company’s return on average assets was 0.97% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, unchanged from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and down from 1.01% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019 the Company’s return on average assets was 0.97%, up from 0.96% for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The Company’s return on average equity was 8.75% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, down from 8.84% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and up from 8.50% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company’s return on average equity was 8.79%, up from 7.93% for the six months ended June 30, 2018. 

Richard J. Gavegnano, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I am pleased to report record net income of $15.2 million for the second quarter of 2019, up $1.1 million, or 8%, from the prior second quarter record in 2018, and $30.2 million for the first half of 2019, up $4.2 million, or 16%, from the prior first half record in 2018. Our net loan growth was $57 million, or 1%, in the second quarter of 2019 following an anticipated $70 million commercial real estate loan pay-off, and $172 million or 3%, in the first half. Since our loan pipeline remains robust, we expect our growth in the second half of 2019 to rise beyond our current annualized rate of 6%. Following the opening of our 39th branch in Cambridge earlier in July, we remain on track to open our 40th branch in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood by year end as we continue to attract new business and consumer relationships and work to further expand our market share in the metropolitan Boston area.”

The Company’s net interest income was $42.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, down $127,000, or 0.3%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and up $1.4 million, or 3.5%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The interest rate spread and net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis were 2.48% and 2.82%, respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to 2.57% and 2.89%, respectively, for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 2.81% and 3.07%, respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, net interest income increased $4.2 million, or 5.2%, to $85.1 million from the six months ended June 30, 2018. The interest rate spread and net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis were 2.53% and 2.85%, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 2.87% and 3.11% for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increases in net interest income were primarily due to growth in average loan balances and yields on interest-earning assets, partially offset by increases in the average balances of total deposits and borrowings and the cost of funds for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the respective prior periods.

Total interest and dividend income increased to $66.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, up $1.8 million, or 2.8%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and $10.4 million, or 18.7%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2018, primarily due to growth in the Company’s average loan balances to $5.810 billion. The Company’s yield on loans on a tax-equivalent basis was 4.47% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, up three basis points from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and up 14 basis points from the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Company’s yield on interest-earning assets on a tax-equivalent basis was 4.38% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, up four basis points from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and up 22 basis points from the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019 the Company’s total interest and dividend income increased $22.9 million, or 21.2%, to $130.7 million from the six months ended June 30, 2018, primarily due to growth in the Company’s average loan balances of $841.7 million, or 17.1%, to $5.753 billion and by an increase in the yield on loans on a tax-equivalent basis of 14 basis points to 4.45% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018. The Company’s yield on interest-earning assets on a tax-equivalent basis increased 22 basis points to 4.36% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.

Total interest expense increased to $23.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, up $1.9 million, or 8.8%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and $9.0 million, or 60.8%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Interest expense on deposits increased to $20.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, up $1.5 million, or 7.8%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and $7.9 million, or 62.0%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2018 primarily due to growth in average total deposits to $5.001 billion and increases in the cost of average total deposits to 1.66% from 1.58% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, and 1.19% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Interest expense on borrowings increased to $3.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, up $426,000, or 15.6%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and $1.1 million, or 53.8%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2018 primarily due to increases in the average cost of borrowings to 2.37% from 1.91% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, and 1.39% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Company’s total cost of funds was 1.73% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, up 11 basis points from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 51 basis points from the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Total interest expense increased $18.7 million, or 69.5%, to $45.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from the six months ended June 30, 2018. Interest expense on deposits increased $16.5 million, or 71.1%, to $39.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from the six months ended June 30, 2018 due to growth in average total deposits of $759.1 million, or 18.1%, to $4.958 billion and an increases in the cost of average total deposits of 50 basis points to 1.62%. Interest expense on borrowings increased $2.2 million, or 59.2%, to $5.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from the six months ended June 30, 2018 due to an increase in the cost of average total borrowings of 79 basis points to 2.13%, partially offset by a decrease in average total borrowings of $1.6 million, or 0.3%, to $555.1 million. The Company’s cost of funds increased 53 basis points to 1.67% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Mr. Gavegnano noted, “Our net interest income continues to rise year-over-year on the strength of our organic loan and deposit growth in recent years, while our yields on loans and other interest-earning assets have steadily trended upward. During this challenging interest rate environment, our net interest margin dipped seven basis points to 2.82% for the second quarter from the first quarter of 2019 due to an increase of 11 basis points in our cost of funds. With market interest rates beginning to decline, we continue to believe our margin is poised to expand as our aggregate interest costs are expected to reach a peak in the coming months.”

The Company's provision for loan losses was $78,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, down $765,000 from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and $1.8 million from the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The allowance for loan losses was $53.9 million or 0.92% of total loans at June 30, 2019, compared to $54.0 million or 0.94% of total loans at March 31, 2019, $53.2 million or 0.94% of total loans at December 31, 2018, and $49.4 million or 0.96% of total loans at June 30, 2018. The changes in the allowance for loan losses coverage ratio were based on management’s assessment of loan portfolio growth and composition changes, declines in historical charge-off trends, reduced levels of problem loans and other improvements in asset quality trends.

Net charge-offs totaled $210,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to net charge-offs of $77,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and net recoveries of $43,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, net charge-offs totaled $287,000 compared to net recoveries of $157,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Non-accrual loans were $6.0 million, or 0.10% of total loans outstanding, at June 30, 2019; down $1.5 million, or 19.9%, from March 31, 2019; down $860,000, or 12.5% from December 31, 2018 and down $1.9 million, or 23.5%, from June 30, 2018. Non-performing assets were $6.0 million, or 0.09% of total assets, at June 30, 2019, compared to $7.5 million, or 0.12% of total assets, at March 31, 2019, $6.9 million, or 0.11% of total assets at December 31, 2018, and $7.9 million, or 0.14% of total assets, at June 30, 2018.

Non-interest income was $3.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, down from $3.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and up from $2.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Non-interest income decreased $874,000, or 22.8%, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2019, primarily due to a $1.1 million decrease in gain on marketable equity securities, net, partially offset by a $191,000 increase in customer service fees. Compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018, non-interest income increased $96,000, or 3.4%, primarily due to increases of $211,000 in loan fees and $38,000 in mortgage banking gains, net, partially offset by a $165,000 decrease in gain on marketable equity securities, net. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, non-interest income increased $1.6 million, or 30.6%, to $6.8 million from $5.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, primarily due to a $1.7 million increase in the gain on marketable equity securities, net, reflecting increases in market valuations.

Non-interest expenses were $25.1 million, or 1.60% of average assets for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $25.8 million, or 1.66% of average assets for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and $23.5 million, or 1.69% of average assets for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Non-interest expenses decreased $679,000, or 2.6%, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2019, due primarily to a decrease of $716,000 in salaries and employee benefits, reflecting seasonal reductions in payroll taxes and employee benefits. Non-interest expenses increased $1.7 million, or 7.0%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018, due primarily to increases of $625,000 in occupancy and equipment, $478,000 in salaries and employee benefits, $356,000 in data processing and $293,000 in marketing and advertising, partially offset by a $216,000 decrease in professional services.  For the six months ended June 30, 2019, non-interest expenses increased $2.8 million, or 5.7%, to $50.9 million from $48.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, due primarily to increases of $716,000 in salaries and employee benefits, $682,000 in occupancy and equipment, $643,000 in data processing, $488,000 in marketing and advertising and $362,000 in deposit insurance, partially offset by a $321,000 decrease in professional services. The increases in salaries and employee benefits were primarily due to annual increases in employee compensation, payroll taxes and employee benefits, while the increases in occupancy and equipment expenses and data processing include costs associated with the expansion of our branch network, including one new branch that opened late in the first quarter of 2018, three new branch openings in the fourth quarter of 2018 and one new branch opened in July 2019. The Company’s efficiency ratio was 55.57% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to 57.20% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 53.89% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, the efficiency ratio was 56.38% compared to 55.74% for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Mr. Gavegnano added, “As expected, our non-interest expenses decreased 3% along with improvement in our efficiency ratio to 55.6% from 57.2% for the second quarter of 2019 from the first quarter, while increases in these expenses over the past year were limited to 6% to 7% for the second quarter and first half of 2019. We controlled our overhead expense growth while expanding our branch network by five locations since the beginning of 2018 by focusing on maintaining flat staffing levels, especially in our retail division, and continuing to negotiate cost-effective branch leases.”

The Company recorded a provision for income taxes of $5.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, reflecting an effective tax rate of 25.0%, compared to $4.7 million, or an effective tax rate of 23.8%, for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, and $4.5 million, or an effective tax rate of 24.3%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, the provision for income taxes was $9.8 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 24.4%, compared to $7.8 million, or an effective tax rate of 23.1%, for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Net loans were $5.765 billion at June 30, 2019, up $57.4 million, or 1.0%, from March 31, 2019, and $172.0 million, or 3.1%, from December 31, 2018.

The increase in commercial real estate loans reflects a $70.0 million loan pay-off that occurred in the second quarter. Cash and due from banks was $361.1 million at June 30, 2019, a decrease of $10.9 million, or 2.9% from December 31, 2018. Securities, at fair value, were $31.3 million at June 30, 2019, an increase of $680,000, or 2.2%, from $30.6 million at December 31, 2018.

Total stockholders’ equity increased $9.3 million, or 1.4%, to $695.7 million at June 30, 2019 from $686.4 million at March 31, 2019, and $21.0 million, or 3.1%, from $674.7 million at December 31, 2018. The increase for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to net income of $30.2 million and $3.4 million related to stock-based compensation plans, partially offset by the repurchase of 341,019 shares of the Company’s common stock related to the stock repurchase programs at a total cost of $5.7 million and dividends of $0.14 per share totaling $7.1 million. Stockholders’ equity to assets was 10.92% at June 30, 2019, compared to 10.93% at March 31, 2019 and 10.92% at December 31, 2018.
