Tompkins Financial Corporation Reports Record Year-to-Date and Third Quarter Earnings

ITHACA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Tompkins Financial Corporation (NYSE American:TMP):

Tompkins Financial Corporation reported diluted earnings per share of $1.36 for the third quarter of 2018, which represents an increase of 19.3% over the $1.14 reported in the third quarter of 2017. Net income for the third quarter of 2018 was $20.9 million, an increase of 20.2% over the $17.4 million reported for the same period in 2017.

Year-to-date diluted earnings per share of $4.12 for the first nine months of 2018 represents an increase of 26.0% over the same period in 2017. Year-to-date net income was $63.4 million, an increase of $13.4 million, or 26.7% over the same period in 2017.

President and CEO, Stephen S. Romaine said, “We are pleased to once again report record earnings for both the year-to-date and quarterly results. Current period net income growth rates have benefited from lower tax rates, though our year-to-date income before tax also reflected strong growth, with an increase of 8.3% over the same period in 2017. The current interest rate environment is challenging as we, along with most in our industry, have seen narrowing of our net interest margin. Despite the pressure on margins, our ability to grow loans and deposits has allowed us to see continued growth in net interest income, with the third quarter of 2018 representing our fourteenth consecutive quarterly increase in net interest income."

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER AND YEAR-TO-DATE PERIODS:

  • Year-to-date diluted earnings per share reflect the best performance for the first nine months of any year in the Company's history. Quarterly diluted earnings per share also reflect the best third quarter performance in the Company's history.
  • Year-to-date profitability indicators remain strong with return on average assets of 1.27%; and a return on average shareholders' equity of 14.47% for 2018, which are improved from 1.06% and 11.70%, respectively, for the same period in 2017.
  • Total loans of $4.8 billion at September 30, 2018, were up 7.0% over September 30, 2017, and up 2.9% over December 31, 2017.
  • Total deposits of $5.0 billion at September 30, 2018, were up $81.1 million, or 1.6% compared to September 30, 2017, and up $187.3 million, or 3.9% over December 31, 2017. Total non-interest bearing deposits were up $26.9 million over prior quarter.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Net interest income of $53.2 million for the third quarter of 2018 increased by $2.2 million, or 4.2% compared to the same period in 2017. For the year-to-date period, net interest income was $158.6 million, up $9.2 million, or 6.2% from the same nine-month period in 2017.

Growth in net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was largely driven by $388.0 million of growth in average loans over the same period in 2017, an increase of 8.9%. Average deposits for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, increased $93.6 million, or 2.0% compared to the same period in 2017. Included in the increase in average deposits was a $125.0 million or 10.1% increase in average noninterest bearing deposits. The net interest margin for the third quarter of 2018 was 3.35%, compared to 3.40% reported for the same period in 2017, and 3.36% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The decline in margin from the same period last year is largely due to changes in the interest rate environment, which has resulted in funding costs rising at a faster rate than asset yields.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income represented 25.9% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2018, compared to 25.2% in the same period in 2017, and 26.6% for the first nine months of 2018, compared to 25.8% in the same period in 2017. Noninterest income of $18.6 million for the third quarter of 2018 was up 8.1% compared to the same period last year. Fee income in the third quarter of 2018 associated with insurance, wealth management, deposit services, and card services were up a combined $671,000 or 4.2% over the same period in 2017.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Noninterest expense was $45.1 million for the third quarter of 2018, up $3.3 million, or 7.8%, over the third quarter of 2017. For the year-to-date period, noninterest expense was $133.8 million, up $9.0 million, or 7.2%, from the same period in 2017. The higher noninterest expense in 2018 included lease write-downs of $2.0 million (pre-tax) in the second quarter and $514,000 (pre-tax) in the third quarter related to leases on recently vacated space. Noninterest expense increases for both the third quarter and year-to-date periods of 2018 also included normal annual increases in salaries and wages.

INCOME TAX EXPENSE

The Company's effective tax rate was 20.6% in the third quarter of 2018, compared to 32.8% for the same period in 2017. The decrease is a direct result of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which reduced the Federal statutory tax rate from 35% in 2017, to 21% in 2018.

ASSET QUALITY

Asset quality trends remained strong in the third quarter of 2018. Nonperforming assets represented 0.39% of total assets at September 30, 2018, compared to 0.38% at December 31, 2017, and 0.37% at September 30, 2017. Nonperforming asset levels continue to be well below the most recent Federal Reserve Board Peer Group Average1 of 0.61%.

Provision for loan and lease losses was $272,000 for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $402,000 for the third quarter of 2017. Net charge-offs for the third quarter of 2018 were $138,000 compared to net recoveries of $479,000 in the third quarter of 2017.

The Company’s allowance for originated loan and lease losses totaled $41.3 million at September 30, 2018, and represented 0.91% of total originated loans and leases at September 30, 2018, unchanged from both December 31, 2017, and September 30, 2017. The total allowance represented 169.00% of total nonperforming loans and leases at September 30, 2018, compared to 172.84% at December 31, 2017, and 170.12% at September 30, 2017.

CAPITAL POSITION

Capital ratios remain well above the regulatory well capitalized minimums. The ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets was 7.49% at September 30, 2018, improved from the 7.36% reported for the most recent prior quarter ended June 30, 2018, and down from 7.58% at September 30, 2017.
