Old Line Bancshares, Inc. Reports 85% Increase in Quarterly Net Income and 4.11% Quarterly Loan Growth for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

BOWIE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / April 17, 2017 / Old Line Bancshares, Inc. ("Old Line Bancshares" or the "Company") (OLBK), the parent company of Old Line Bank, reports net income available to common stockholders increased $1.8 million, or 84.74%, to $4.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $2.2 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2016. Earnings were $0.36 per basic and diluted common share for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $0.20 per basic and diluted common share for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The increase in net income for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the same 2016 period is primarily the result of a $1.5 million increase in net interest income, a decrease of $1.1 million in non-interest expenses and a decrease of $338 thousand in the provision for loan losses, partially offset by a decrease of $129 thousand in non-interest income.

Net interest income increased during the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period last year primarily as a result of the increase in net loans held for investment, partially offset by an increase in interest expense. Non-interest expense decreased $1.1 million, or 10.29%, for the three month period ending March 31, 2017 compared to the three month period ending March 31, 2016. This decrease is primarily the result of a reduction in salaries and benefits and occupancy expense associated with the staff reduction and branch closures implemented in the second and third quarters of 2016. Non-interest income decreased $129 thousand as compared to first quarter of 2016 primarily as a result of a decrease in other fees and commissions, offsetting an increase in income on marketable loans.

Net loans held for investment at March 31, 2017 increased $55.9 million, or 4.11%, compared to December 31, 2016 and $241.3 million, or 20.52%, compared to March 31, 2016. Total assets increased $56.8 million to $1.8 billion at March 31, 2017 from $1.7 billion at December 31, 2016.

James W. Cornelsen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Old Line Bancshares, stated, "We had a strong first quarter with increases in net loans held for investment of $55.9 million and deposits of $43.0 million. We are extremely proud of the reduction in nonperforming assets to 0.24% which we haven't seen in 10 years. We are enthusiastic about building on this momentum during the remainder of the year. We are excited about the proposed merger with DCB Bancshares, Inc., the parent company of Damascus Community Bank, expected to close during the third quarter of 2017, and the talent that will add to our team as well as expanding our market further into Montgomery, Fredrick, and Carroll Counties. Additionally, in January, we opened a new branch in Leonardtown located in Saint Mary's County. Our focus is to continue to enhance our profitability, build on our solid foundation by growing our loan and non-maturity deposit portfolios and maintain our operating efficiency while investing in new growth opportunities."

1st QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Net loans held for investment increased $55.9 million, or 4.11%, during the three months ended March 31, 2017, remaining at $1.4 billion at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016. The increase is a result of organic growth within our market area.
  • Average gross loans increased $209.6 million, or 17.88%, to $1.4 billion for the three month period ending March 31, 2017 compared to $1.2 billion during the three months ended March 31, 2016. The increase during the three month period this year as compared to the same period last year is due to organic growth.
  • Nonperforming assets decreased to 0.24% of total assets at March 31, 2017 from 0.59% at December 31, 2016, which is a historical 10 year low.
  • Total assets increased $56.8 million, or 3.32%, since December 31, 2016.
  • Net income available to common stockholders increased 84.74% to $4.0 million, or $0.36 per basic and diluted share, for the three month period ending March 31, 2017, from $2.2 million, or $0.20 per basic and diluted share, for the first quarter of 2016.
  • The net interest margin during the three months ended March 31, 2017 was 3.74% compared to 3.85% for the same period in 2016. Total yield on interest earning assets increased to 4.37% for the three months ending March 31, 2017, compared to 4.30% for the same three month period last year. Interest expense as a percentage of total interest-bearing liabilities was 0.82% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to 0.60% for the same period of 2016.
  • The first quarter Return on Average Assets (ROAA) and Return on Average Equity (ROAE) were 0.93% and 9.63%, respectively, compared to ROAA and ROAE of 0.57% and 6.01%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2016.
  • Total deposits grew by $43.0 million, or 3.25%, since December 31, 2016.
  • We ended the first quarter of 2017 with a book value of $14.17 per common share and a tangible book value of $12.98 per common share compared to $13.81 and $12.59, respectively, at December 31, 2016.
  • We maintained appropriate levels of liquidity and by all regulatory measures remained "well capitalized."
  • On February 1, 2017, Old Line Bancshares entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with DCB Bancshares, Inc. ("DCB"), the parent company of Damascus Community Bank. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, upon the consummation of the merger of DCB with and into Old Line Bancshares, all outstanding shares of DCB common stock will be exchanged for shares of common stock of Old Line Bancshares. Consummation of the merger is contingent upon the approval of DCB's stockholders as well as receipt of all necessary regulatory and third party approvals and consents. We expect the merger to close during the third quarter of 2017. At December 31, 2016, DCB had consolidated assets of approximately $311 million. DCB has six banking locations located in its primary market areas of Montgomery, Frederick and Carroll Counties.

Total assets at March 31, 2017 increased $56.8 million from December 31, 2016, primarily due to increases of $55.9 million in loans held for investment and $5.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, partially offset by a decrease of $4.9 million in loans held for sale. Deposits increased $43.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2017, of which $21.4 million is attributable to an increase in our non-interest bearing deposits and the remaining $21.6 million is attributable to an increase in our interest bearing deposits.

Average interest earning assets increased $226.2 million for the three month period ending March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of 2016. The average yield on such assets was 4.37% for the three months ending March 31, 2017, compared to 4.30% for the comparable 2016 period. The increase in the yield on interest earning assets is the result of a higher yield on our investment portfolio. Average interest-bearing liabilities increased $183.1 million for the three month period ending March 31, 2017, compared to the same period of 2016. The average rate paid on such liabilities increased to 0.82% for the three month period ending March 31, 2017, compared to 0.60% for the same period in 2016, primarily due to higher rates paid on our borrowings, which includes the interest paid on the subordinated notes we issued in August 2016.

The net interest margin for the three months ended March 31, 2017 decreased to 3.74% from 3.85% for the three months ending March 31, 2016. The net interest margin during the 2017 period was affected by the increase in interest expense, primarily due to the interest due on the subordinated notes, for which there was no comparable expense during the 2016 period. The net interest margin during 2017 was also affected by a higher amount of accretion on acquired loans due to a higher amount of early payoffs on acquired loans with credit marks during the three months ending March 31, 2017 compared to the same period of 2016. The fair value accretion/amortization is recorded on pay-downs recognized during the period, which contributed to eight basis points for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to nine basis points for the same period of 2016.

Net interest income increased $1.5 million, or 12.28%, for the three month period ending March 31, 2017, compared to the same period of 2016, primarily due to average loan growth and increases in the interest recognized on loans, partially offset by an increase in interest expense. Loan interest income increased for the three month period ending March 31, 2017 due to organic growth. Interest expense increased due to increases in the amount of and interest paid on both our deposits and borrowings. Borrowings include the Notes discussed above.

The provision for loan losses decreased $338 thousand for the three months ending March 31, 2017, compared to the same period of 2016, due to an improvement in our asset quality and a decrease in our reserves on specific loans. The reserves on specific loans decreased primarily due to one large commercial borrower, consisting of 23 commercial loans totaling $3.0 million of which $1.0 million was charged-off against the allowance for loan losses and $2.0 million was reclassified as trouble debt restructurings during the first quarter of 2017. Amounts charged off in relation to this credit during the quarter were in line with specific reserves at December 31, 2016. These trouble debt restructurings are classified as impaired and all our impaired loans have been adequately reserved for at March 31, 2017.

Non-interest income decreased $129 thousand, or 6.50%, for the three month period ending March 31, 2017, compared to the same period of 2016, primarily as a result of a decrease of $434 thousand in other fees and commissions, partially offset by increases of $254 thousand in income on marketable loans and $112 thousand in gain on disposal of assets compared to the same period of 2016. The decrease in other fees and commissions is primarily related to a one-time incentive fee received for our debit card program received in the first quarter of last year. The increase in income on marketable loans is a result of an increase in the number of residential mortgage loans sold in the secondary market compared to the same period of 2016. The increase in gain on disposal of assets is due to the sale of our previously owned branch, the Accokeek branch, that we closed in the third quarter of 2016.

Non-interest expense decreased $1.1 million, or 10.28%, for the three month period ending March 31, 2017, compared to the same period of 2016, primarily as a result of decreases in salaries and benefits, merger and integration, occupancy expense and other real estate owned ("OREO") expenses. The decrease in salaries and benefits and occupancy expense is associated with the staff reduction and branch closures implemented in the second and third quarters of 2016. There were no merger and integration expenses during the 2017 period whereas we incurred $359 thousand of merger and integration expenses during the first quarter of 2016 in connection with the Regal Bancorp acquisition that was consummated in December 2015. OREO expenses decreased for the 2017 period as a result of a reduction on our expenses associated with properties in our OREO portfolio.
