DUNN, N.C., Aug. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Select Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLCT) (the “Company”), the holding company for Select Bank & Trust Company, today reported net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 of $5.6 million with basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.33 and $0.32, respectively, compared to net income of $681,000 with basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.04 for the comparative quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase in net income in the second quarter of 2021 compared to 2020 was primarily attributable to loan growth and an increase in earnings from the three additional western North Carolina branches that were acquired in April of 2020, plus an increase in non-interest income and a recovery of provision for loan losses.

Total assets, deposits, and gross loans for the Company as of June 30, 2021 were $1.9 billion, $1.6 billion, and $1.3 billion, respectively, compared to total assets of $1.6 billion, total deposits of $1.3 billion, and gross loans of $1.2 billion as of the same date in 2020.

On June 1st, 2021, the Company announced it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by First Bancorp, headquartered in Southern Pines, North Carolina, which operates 102 branches in North Carolina and South Carolina and has approximately $8.2 billion in assets. This transaction, which is subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions, is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Comments of the Chief Executive Officer

William Hedgepeth, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated “We are pleased to announce our second quarter results are very strong, following closely with the results for the first quarter of this year. We had second quarter earnings of $5.6 million including a recovery of loan loss provision of $459,000. Total assets have grown $42.5 million this quarter and deposits grew $38.0 million during the second quarter. Gross loans declined by $9.9 million, which was primarily due to PPP loans that were forgiven. Fee income for the quarter from our mortgage and SBA departments have remained strong and increased by $77,000 over the second quarter of 2020. As always, we are focused on our net interest margin and are pleased to report it was 3.86% for the first half of 2021. Maintaining our margin at this level is challenging and was difficult to accomplish in the current interest rate environment, especially considering the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy. The strategic initiatives we have been implementing over the last several quarters are proving to be successful and are reflected in our ROAA of 1.33% and ROAE of 11.12% for the first half of 2021. We are reaping the benefits of those initiatives and the efficiencies we have gained from those efforts. Our efficiency ratio for the first half of 2021 was 59.72%.”

Hedgepeth continued, “As you can see, our asset quality numbers continue to reflect a very low level of net charge offs for our loan portfolio with past dues, nonaccruals and foreclosed real estate remaining at historically low levels for our institution as of June 30, 2021. We believe this is due to our ongoing interaction with our customers that has allowed us to work closely with them to ensure resources are available to those customers still navigating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our staff has dedicated a tremendous number of hours and has worked diligently with our customers to utilize the SBA’s PPP loan program and loan modifications as the economy continues to confront challenges associated with the pandemic. For all phases of the SBA’s PPP loan program, we originated 1,822 loans amounting to $137.1 million that assisted our communities as they dealt with this event. At the end of June 2021, we had approximately $41.5 million comprising 605 PPP loans outstanding that are in the process of being forgiven. At the height of the pandemic we granted 419 loan deferrals related to COVID-19 for $219.6 million. As of June 30, 2021, we had 8 loan deferrals related to COVID-19 totaling $2.2 million. Our allowance for loan losses was reduced slightly from year-end, but we believe it is sufficient to absorb any losses in the near future. With the rise of new variants, the country is not out of the pandemic, so we will continue to provide additional staff resources, together with an ‘all hands-on deck’ philosophy to facilitate superior customer service. We will continue to work with our customers by assisting them with any stimulus programs in the future.”

“All of our branch lobbies have remained open for business transactions while keeping the health and safety of our customers and employees as our primary objective. That will not change as we quickly address any changes related to the pandemic and remain watchful for adjustments in the economy that affect the operational activities of our customers and our branches. We will address and accommodate as needed the effects of social distancing measures, occupancy limitations and other challenges that influence how we interact with our customers. We continue to believe crafting financial solutions enables and enhances our employees’ relationships with their customers to further strengthen business partnerships during these times.”

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income was $16.0 million and $11.9 million for the second quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively. On a comparative quarter basis, the Company’s total interest income was positively affected by increased loan balances due to branch acquisitions and organic growth. The increase in interest income was partially offset by a decreasing loan yield, an increase in securities balances at a lower yield, plus the reduction in other earning assets at a lower yield. Average total interest-earning assets were $1.7 billion and $1.4 billion in the second quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively. The yield on those assets increased 3 basis points, from 4.22% in the second quarter of 2020 to 4.25% for the same period in 2021. This was primarily due to an increase of accretion from acquired loans which was slightly offset by lower rates on recently originated loans on a comparative quarter basis.

The Company’s average interest-bearing liabilities increased by $213.3 million, to $1.1 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 from $936 million for the second quarter of 2020. Low-cost savings, NOW and money market deposits increased $292.4 million while the cost of transactional deposits decreased from 0.54% to 0.41%, or 13 basis points year over year. The cost of total deposits decreased from 0.72% in the second quarter of 2020 to 0.40% in the second quarter of 2021 primarily due to the decrease in the cost of time deposits. During the second quarter of 2021, the Company’s net interest margin was 3.85% and net interest spread was 3.66%. In the second quarter of 2020, net interest margin was 3.45% and net interest spread was 3.08%. The Company’s net interest margin year to date through June 30, 2021 was 3.86% and net interest spread was 3.65%. For the comparative six-month period ended June 30, 2020, net interest margin was 3.69% and net interest spread was 3.29%.

Provision for Loan Losses and Asset Quality

During the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded a recovery of provision for loan losses of $459,000, based primarily on adjustments to qualitative allowance factors and improved economic performance metrics related to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company granted payment extensions on approximately 8 commercial and consumer loans totaling $2.2 million related to the impact of COVID-19 for the quarter, which mature in the next 90 days. On a comparative quarter basis, the Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2020, based primarily on adjustments to qualitative loan factors related to the pandemic trends in the loan portfolio presented during that quarter. In the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded net charge-offs of $70,000 compared to net charge-offs of $492,000 in the second quarter of 2020. These charge-offs resulted in a net charge-off rate of 0.02% of average loans for the current quarter, compared to a net charge-off rate of 0.16% in the second quarter of 2020. On a comparative year-to-date basis, the Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $4.2 million during the first six months of 2020, based primarily on adjustments to qualitative loan factors related to the pandemic trends in the loan portfolio present during that period, as compared to a recovery of loan loss provision of $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. In the first half of 2021, the Company recorded net charge-offs of $214,000 compared to net charge-offs of $503,000 in the first half of 2020. These charge-offs resulted in a net charge-off rate of 0.02% of average loans for year to date 2021, compared to a net charge-off rate of 0.05% for year to date 2020.

Non-interest Income

Non-interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $1.9 million, an increase of $484,000 from $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2020. Service charges on deposit accounts totaled $239,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to $206,000 for the second quarter in 2020, representing a $33,000 increase on a comparative quarter basis. Other non-deposit fees and income increased $375,000 from the second quarter of 2020 to the second quarter of 2021. Fees of $268,000 from presold mortgages and $163,000 from SBA loans totaled $431,000 in the second quarter of 2021, which represented an increase from the $234,000 in mortgage fees and $121,000 in SBA fees in the second quarter of 2020.

Year to date fees of $556,000 from presold mortgages and $360,000 from SBA loans totaled $916,000 in the first half of 2021, compared to $419,000 in mortgage fees and $228,000 in SBA fees in the first half of 2020 totaling $647,000.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain financial measures we use to evaluate our performance and discuss in this release and the accompanying tables are identified as being “non-GAAP financial measures.” In accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, we classify a financial measure as being a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measure if that financial measure excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding or including amounts, that are included or excluded, as the case may be, in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP as in effect from time to time in the United States in our statements of operations, balance sheet or statements of cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures do not include operating and other statistical measures or ratios or statistical measures calculated using exclusively either financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, operating measures or other measures that are not non-GAAP financial measures or both.

The non-GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this release should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate the non-GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this release may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. You should understand how such other banking organizations calculate their financial measures similar, or with names similar, to the non-GAAP financial measures we have discussed in this release when comparing such non-GAAP financial measures.

Tangible book value per share is a non-GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as shareholders’ equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles; and (b) tangible book value per share as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by shares of common stock outstanding. For tangible book value per share, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is our book value per share. A reconciliation of tangible book value per share to book value per share is included in the tables that accompany this release.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in book value per share exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing total book value while not increasing our tangible book value.

(1) Net interest margin-tax equivalent reflects tax-exempt income on a tax-equivalent basis.

(2) Net interest margin-core and yield on loans - core excludes the impact of purchase accounting accretion, loan payoff charges and related deferred fees

recognized related to early loan repayments.

(3) Excludes the dilutive effect of common stock issuable upon exercise of stock options.

(4) We calculate book value per common share as shareholders' equity less preferred stock at the end of the relevant period divided by the outstanding number

of shares of our common stock at the end of the relevant period.

(5) We calculate the tangible book value per common share as total shareholders' equity less goodwill, preferred stock and core deposit intangibles, divided by

the number of outstanding shares of our common stock at the end of the relevant period.

divided by the number of outstanding shares of our common stock at the end of the relevant period. Please refer to the table

above for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure.

(2) Annualized.

(3) Efficiency ratio is calculated as a non-interest expenses divided by the sum of net interest income and non-interest income.

(4) Nonperforming loans consist of non-accrual loans and accruing TDR loans.

(5) Delinquency Ratio includes loans 30-89 days past due and excludes non-accrual loans.
