HAMPTON, Va. , Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Old Point Financial Corporation (the Company or Old Point) (NASDAQ: OPOF) reported net income of $2.0 million and earnings per diluted common share of $0.38 for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 , as compared to net income of $1.4 million or $0.27 earnings per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2018. 

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $7.9 million or $1.51 earnings per diluted common share. For the comparative 2018 period, net income was $4.9 million or $0.96 earnings per diluted common share. Excluding the effect of $743 thousand in after tax merger costs, net operating earnings (non-GAAP) were $5.7 million , or $1.10 earnings per diluted common share, for the year ended December 31, 2018 , which reflects adjustments for certain after tax merger-related costs incurred in the acquisition of Citizens National Bank which closed on April 1, 2018 .

Robert Shuford, Jr. , Chairman, President, and CEO of the Company and Old Point National Bank (the Bank) said, "We are pleased to report net income of $7.9 million , or $1.51 earnings per diluted common share, for the year ended December 31, 2019 . Our Company continued to post solid revenue growth in both interest income and non-interest income over the comparative 2018 period, resulting in record top line revenue generation. Overall asset quality continued to improve during the year with continued focus and progress in non-performing asset resolutions. Additionally during 2019, we successfully attracted a number of highly skilled bankers to our team, effectively doubling the Bank's number of commercial production officers. As we finish 2019 strong, we are energized as we enter into 2020."

Highlights of the quarter and year to date are as follows:

  • Non-performing assets (NPAs) totaled $7.6 million as of December 31, 2019 , down from $9.1 million at September 30, 2019 and $14.7 million at December 31, 2018 . NPAs as a percentage of total assets improved to 0.72% at December 31, 2019 which compared to 0.87% at September 30, 2019 and 1.42% at December 31, 2018 .
  • Net interest income fell slightly to $8.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $8.6 million for the third quarter of 2019 as well as the fourth quarter of 2018. Net interest income year to date 2019 was $33.8 million , increasing $569 thousand or 1.7%, over the comparative 2018 period of $33.3 million .
  • Net interest margin (on a fully tax-equivalent basis) compressed to 3.51% for the fourth quarter of 2019 from 3.58% for the third quarter of 2019 and 3.65% for the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019 the fully tax-equivalent net interest margin compressed slightly to 3.61% from 3.62% for the comparative 2018 period.
  • Annualized return on average assets (ROA) was 0.75% for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 0.85% in the prior quarter and 0.53% in the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019 , ROA was 0.76% compared to 0.48% for the comparative 2018 period.
  • Annualized return on average equity (ROE) was 7.11% for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 8.13% in the prior quarter and 5.45% in the fourth quarter of 2018. ROE for the year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 was 7.33% and 4.93%, respectively.
  • The efficiency ratio showed positive movement, decreasing to 80.25% for the year ended December 31, 2019 from 82.02% for the comparative 2018 period.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $8.4 million , a decrease of $175 thousand , or 2.0%, from the prior quarter and $206 thousand , or 2.4%, from the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, net interest income increased $569 thousand or 1.7% to $33.8 million from $33.3 million . The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to lower yields on slightly lower average earning assets. The year-over-year growth was positively impacted by higher average earning asset balances and higher yields which was partially offset by higher funding costs. The tax-equivalent net interest margin for the quarter was 3.51%, down from 3.58% in the prior quarter and 3.65% in the same period a year ago; however the tax-equivalent net interest margin for the year ended December 31, 2019 was 3.61% compared to 3.62% for the comparative 2018 period.

Asset Quality

Non-performing assets (NPAs) totaled $7.6 million as of December 31, 2019 , down from $9.1 million at September 30, 2019 and $14.7 million at December 31, 2018 . NPAs as a percentage of total assets improved to 0.72%, compared to 0.87% at September 30, 2019 and 1.42% at December 31, 2018 . Non-accrual loans were $6.0 million at December 31, 2019 , down from $8.0 million at September 30, 2019 and $12.1 million at December 31, 2018 . Loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing interest increased $421 thousand to $1.5 million at December 31, 2019 from $1.1 million at September 30, 2019 but decreased by $1 million from $2.5 million at December 31, 2018 . Of the loans past due 90 days or more at December 31, 2019 , approximately $855 thousand were government-guaranteed student loans.

The Company recaptured a provision for loan losses of $695 thousand during the fourth quarter of 2019 and did not recognize any provision for loan losses during the third quarter of 2019 compared to $1.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. The allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) was $9.7 million at December 31, 2019 compared to $10.6 million at September 30, 2019 and $10.1 million at December 31, 2018 . The ALLL as a percentage of loans held for investment was 1.29% at December 31, 2019 , down from 1.43% at September 30, 2019 and 1.31% at December 31, 2018 . Historical annualized net charge offs as a percentage of average loans outstanding was 0.14% for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 0.08% for third quarter of 2019 and 0.58% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company recognized a recapture of provision for loan losses during the fourth quarter of 2019, because year over year (i) positive quantitative factors considered in determining the provision outweighed increased qualitative factors; (ii) net loans declined $25.7 and (iii) non-performing assets improved $7.2 million .

Noninterest Income

Total noninterest income for the fourth quarter was $3.4 million , a decrease of $386 thousand from the previous quarter but unchanged from the fourth quarter of 2018. Increases in fiduciary and management fees over the preceding quarter and the prior year quarter were partially offset by fluctuations in other service charges, commissions and fees, mortgage banking income and service charges on deposit accounts as well as a gain on sale of available-for-sale securities in the third quarter of 2019. Total noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2019 increased $768 thousand , or 5.8%, to $14.1 million over the comparative 2018 period and is primarily related to increases in fiduciary and management fees, other service charges, commissions and fees, and gain on sale of available-for-sale securities.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense totaled $10.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, an increase of $447 thousand from the third quarter of 2019 and $703 thousand from the fourth quarter of 2018. Noninterest expense for the year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 were $38.6 million and $38.5 million , respectively. Adjusting for the impact of certain after tax merger expenses of $743 thousand in 2018, adjusted noninterest expense (non-GAAP) increased $881 thousand comparing year to date 2019 (for which adjusted noninterest expense was equal to noninterest expense) to the same period in 2018. Quarter over quarter and year over year increases are related to increased salaries and employee benefits, and data processing, and, with respect to the year over year increase, professional services, which were partially offset by decreases in FDIC insurance for the quarterly comparative periods and occupancy and equipment expense in the yearly comparative periods.  

Balance Sheet Review

Total assets as of December 31, 2019 were $1.1 billion , a slight increase from December 31, 2018 at $1.0 billion . Net loans held for investment decreased $25.7 million , or 3.4%, from December 31, 2018 to $738.2 million . Net loan growth in the commercial and real estate secured portfolio segments was offset by pay-downs in the indirect automobile segment as well as successful resolution of $6.1 million of non-accrual loans. Securities available for sale, at fair value, decreased $2.5 million from December 31, 2018 to $145.7 million at December 31, 2019 .

Total deposits as of December 31, 2019 increased $46.4 million , or 5.5%, to $889.5 million from December 31, 2018 . Noninterest-bearing deposits increased $16.3 million , or 6.6%, savings deposits increased $31.1 million , or 8.5%, and time deposits decreased $1.0 million , or 0.5%.

The Company's total stockholders' equity at December 31, 2019 increased $7.7 million or 7.6% from December 31, 2018 to $109.7 million . The Bank remains well capitalized with a Tier 1 Capital ratio of 11.72% at December 31, 2019 as compared to 10.90% at December 31, 2018 . The Bank's leverage ratio was 9.72% at December 31, 2019 as compared to 9.34% at December 31 , 2018. 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures  In addition to the Company's results presented in accordance with GAAP, this release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures including net operating earnings, net operating earnings per share, net operating ROA, net operating ROE, operating efficiency ratio, and adjusted noninterest expense. A schedule reconciling these non-GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of this press release. The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures in its internal analysis of financial and operating performance and the Company's management believes that they provide greater transparency regarding management's view of the Company's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, the Company's GAAP results. In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of its non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
