  • ASB Bancorp, Inc. Reports Financial Results For The Quarter Ended March 31, 2017
    Company Release - 04/28/2017 08:15

    ASHEVILLE, N.C., April 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ASB Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ GM: ASBB), the holding company for Asheville Savings Bank, S.S.B. (the "Bank"), announced today its unaudited preliminary operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2017. The Company reported net income of $1.8 million, or $0.50 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to net income of $1.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, for the same quarter of 2016. 

    Suzanne S. DeFerie, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We began the year with a very strong first quarter thanks to focused and successful execution of our strategic business plan and strong market fundamentals. One of our key priorities has been to establish new relationships with commercial clients and to diversify relationships with existing business clients. During the first quarter, we saw favorable growth in the number of new commercial relationships and a corresponding increase in new core deposit accounts and new loan originations, which exceeded loan repayments, prepayments and foreclosures. Overall, deposit growth was strong.

    "During the quarter, we improved our funding mix by repaying higher-cost Federal Home Loan Bank advances. This helped lower our cost of funding and contributed to the ongoing expansion of our net interest margin. Asset quality metrics continued to improve and nonperforming loans as a percent of total loans was nine basis points at quarter end. 

    Ms. DeFerie continued, "With a solid business plan, strong capital position and dedicated professionals as our foundation, we expect to continue our momentum and generate attractive returns for our shareholders."

    2017 First Quarter Highlights 

    • Net income for the first quarter of 2017 increased 63.6% to $1.8 million, or $0.50 per diluted common share, from $1.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2016. First quarter 2017 earnings improved over each of the previous four quarters. 
    • Excluding net gains of $17,000 realized from the sale of investment securities, net of income taxes, earnings for the first quarter of 2017 increased 118.4% to $1.8 million, or $0.49 per diluted common share, from $832,000, or $0.22 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2016. 
    • The income tax provision of $574,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 is net of an income tax benefit of $228,000 due to the adoption of a new accounting pronouncement during the first quarter of 2017 related to the tax benefit on restricted stock vested and released during the quarter for the Company's equity incentive plan. The income tax benefit was previously recognized in the equity section of the balance sheet as a credit to additional paid-in capital. 
    • Net interest income increased 4.7% to $6.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 from $5.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The net interest margin improved to 3.33% for the first quarter of 2017 compared to 3.21% for the same quarter of 2016. 
    • Interest income from loans increased 4.5% in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the first quarter of 2016, which primarily reflected an $18.3 million increase in average loan balances when comparing the two quarters. 
    • Interest expense was $816,000 for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $844,000 for the same quarter of 2016, a decrease of 3.3%, primarily due to the repayment of $30.0 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances that matured in March 2017. The advances had interest rates ranging from 3.99% to 4.20%. 
    • Provisions for loan losses were $57,000 in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $399,000 for the first quarter of 2016, primarily due to increase in the 2016 provision for a specific reserve on a loan determined to be impaired late in the first quarter of 2016. 
    • Loan balances increased $2.2 million, or 0.4%, to $605.8 million at March 31, 2017 from $603.6 million at December 31, 2016 and increased $10.0 million, or 1.7%, since March 31, 2016 as new loan originations exceeded loan repayments, prepayments and foreclosures. 
    • Noninterest income decreased 5.0% to $1.9 million for the first quarter of 2017 from $2.0  million for the first quarter of 2016, primarily due to decreases in gains realized from the sale of investment securities, which were partially offset by increases in mortgage banking income and income from investments in bank owned life insurance. 
    • Noninterest expenses decreased 3.0% to $5.6 million for the first quarter of 2017 from $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2016, primarily due to decreases in pension plan expenses related to termination of the qualified pension plan during the fourth quarter of 2016.
    • Delinquent and nonperforming loans were 0.18% and 0.09%, respectively, of total loans at March 31, 2017 compared to 0.27% and 0.17%, respectively, of total loans at December 31, 2016.  
    • Nonperforming assets, including foreclosed properties and repossessed assets, were 0.72% of total assets at March 31, 2017 compared to 0.79% of total assets at December 31, 2016 and 1.02% of total assets at March 31, 2016. 
    • Core deposits, which exclude certificates of deposit, increased $25.3 million, or 4.9%, since December 31, 2016 and $41.0 million, or 8.2%, since March 31, 2016. Noninterest-bearing deposits increased $9.2 million, or 7.4%, and commercial non-maturity deposits increased $14.3 million, or 9.2%, since December 31, 2016. 
    • Book value per common share increased to $24.75 at March 31, 2017 from $24.06 at December 31, 2016 and $23.10 at March 31, 2016. 
    • Capital remained strong with consolidated regulatory capital ratios of 15.97% common equity tier 1 capital, 11.89% tier 1 leverage capital, 15.97% tier 1 risk-based capital and 17.07% total risk-based capital.

    Income Statement Analysis

    Net Interest Income. Net interest income increased by $274,000, or 4.7%, to $6.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $5.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. Interest income on loans increased $271,000, primarily resulting from an $18.3 million increase in average loan balances and a 9 basis point increase in the average yield on loans. Interest on investment securities decreased $68,000, attributable to a $23.3 million decrease in the average balance of investment securities, which was partially offset by a 30 basis point increase in the average yield earned on the investment portfolio. Interest expense decreased $28,000, or 3.3%, for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016. The lower interest expense was primarily attributable to the repayment of $30.0 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances that matured in March 2017, which was partially offset by a 2 basis points rate increase on total interest-bearing deposits and higher average balances of interest-bearing deposits. For the same comparable three-month periods, average noninterest-bearing deposits grew $11.4 million, or 10.0%, which provided deposit funding growth without adding deposit interest expense.

    Noninterest Income. Noninterest income decreased $103,000, or 5.0%, to $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 from $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The decrease in noninterest income during the 2017 period was primarily due to a $429,000 decrease in gains realized from the sale of investment securities, which was partially offset by increases of $132,000 in mortgage banking income, $87,000 in income from investments in bank owned life insurance and $71,000 in deposit and other service charge income. The increase in mortgage banking income was attributable to higher volumes of residential mortgage loans originated and sold during the 2017 period. Increased income on deposit and other fees primarily related to commercial checking accounts. 

    Noninterest Expenses. Noninterest expenses decreased $173,000, or 3.0%, to $5.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 from $5.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The lower 2017 noninterest expenses primarily reflected decreases of $100,000 in professional and outside services, $82,000 in salaries and employee benefits, $50,000 in data processing fees, and $50,000 in federal deposit insurance premiums, which were partially offset by increases of $72,000 in debit card expenses and $55,000 in training and recruiting expenses. The decrease in salaries and employee benefits included a $197,000 reduction in pension plan expenses that resulted from the termination of the qualified pension plan during the fourth quarter of 2016, which was partially offset by increases in other employee benefits.

    Balance Sheet Review

    Assets. Total assets increased $7.7 million, or 1.0%, to $803.5 million at March 31, 2017 from $795.8 million at December 31, 2016. Cash and cash equivalents increased $13.7 million, or 29.4%, to $60.5 million at March 31, 2017 from $46.7 million at December 31, 2016, primarily attributable to deposit growth.  Investment securities decreased $2.5 million, or 2.4%, to $101.1 million at March 31, 2017 from $103.6 million at December 31, 2016, primarily due to the redeployment of investment securities to fund loan growth. Loans receivable, net of deferred fees, increased $2.2 million, or 0.4%, to $605.8 million at March 31, 2017 from $603.6 million at December 31, 2016 as new loan originations, primarily residential mortgage and commercial real estate loan originations, exceeded loan repayments, prepayments and foreclosures. 

    Liabilities. Total deposits increased $34.4 million, or 5.3%, to $682.1 million at March 31, 2017 from $647.6 million at December 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we continued our focus on core deposit growth, from which we exclude certificates of deposit. Core deposits increased $25.3 million, or 4.9%, to $541.4 million at March 31, 2017 from $516.1 million at December 31, 2016.  

    Commercial checking and money market accounts increased $14.3 million, or 9.2%, to $169.6 million at March 31, 2017 from $155.3 million at December 31, 2016, reflecting expanded sources of lower cost funding. Our efforts to obtain new commercial deposit relationships in conjunction with making new commercial loans significantly contributed to this increase and reflects our commitment to establishing diversified relationships with business clients.

    Certificates of deposit increased $9.2 million, or 7.0%, to $140.7 million at March 31, 2017 from $131.5 million at December 31, 2016, which included an $11.2 million increase in longer term brokered deposits since December 31, 2016. Accounts payable and other liabilities increased $311,000, or 4.7%, to $7.0 million at March 31, 2017 from $6.7 million at December 31, 2016. The increase in accounts payable and other liabilities at March 31, 2017 was primarily attributable to escrow payments made by borrowers.

    Asset Quality

    Provision for Loan Losses. The Company recorded a provision for loan losses in the amount of $57,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $399,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The Company charged off $53,000 in loans for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $8,000 for the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in the three-month provision for loan losses was primarily due to continued improvement in asset quality and the payoff of a residential nonperforming loan for $434,000 during the first quarter of 2017. The allowance for loan losses was 1.08% of total loans at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 compared to 1.13% at March 31, 2016.

    Nonperforming Assets. Nonperforming assets totaled $5.8 million, or 0.72% of total assets, at March 31, 2017 compared to $6.3 million, or 0.79% of total assets, at December 31, 2016. Nonperforming assets included $568,000 in nonperforming loans and $5.2 million in foreclosed real estate and repossessed assets at March 31, 2017 compared to $1.0 million and $5.3 million, respectively, at December 31, 2016.

    Nonperforming loans decreased $444,000 to $568,000, or 0.09% of total loans, at March 31, 2017 compared to $1.0 million, or 0.17% of total loans, at December 31, 2016. Residential mortgage nonperforming loans decreased $442,000, and revolving nonperforming loans decreased $28,000 for the first three months of 2017, which was partially offset by an increase of $32,000 in consumer nonperforming loans. Performing troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs") decreased $82,000, or 1.8%, when comparing the same periods. Total performing TDRs and nonperforming assets decreased $546,000, or 5.0%, to $10.3 million, or 1.28% of total assets, at March 31, 2017 from $10.8 million, or 1.36% of total assets, at December 31, 2016.

    At March 31, 2017, nonperforming loans included four revolving home equity loans that totaled $295,000, one residential mortgage loan in the amount of $184,000, two commercial and industrial loans that totaled $57,000 and two consumer loans that totaled $32,000. As of March 31, 2017, the nonperforming loans had specific reserves totaling $82,000. TDRs were $4.5 million at March 31, 2017 and $4.6 million at December 31, 2016. There were no additions to TDRs during the three months ended March 31, 2017. At March 31, 2017, all of the $4.5 million in TDRs were performing, with the exception of $12,000, which were not performing according to their restructured terms and were included as nonaccruing loans.

    Foreclosed real estate at March 31, 2017 included seven properties with a total recorded amount of $5.1 million compared to ten properties with a total recorded amount of $5.1 million at December 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, no new properties were added to foreclosed real estate, while three properties in the amount of $30,000 were sold with an additional gain of $16,000. The Bank recorded no additional loss provisions on foreclosed real estate during the first three months of 2017, and there were no capital additions during the period. 

    The Bank's largest foreclosed property resulted from a loan relationship that had an original purpose of constructing a mixed-use retail, commercial office, and residential condominium project located in Western North Carolina. As a result of this foreclosure, the Bank acquired 44 of the 48 condominium units in the building. Following an additional write-down of approximately $630,000 on the loans secured by this collateral in the fourth quarter of 2012, the Bank recorded this foreclosed property in the amount of $9.8 million. During 2013, the Bank recorded additional write-downs totaling $1.6 million, which resulted in an adjusted recorded amount of $8.2 million at December 31, 2013. During 2014, the Bank recorded an additional write-down of $133,000 on the property and sold 28 residential condominium units and one office unit. During 2015, the Bank sold one retail unit and two office units. During 2016, the Bank sold one retail unit. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, there were no units sold. As of March 31, 2017, the adjusted recorded amount was $3.3 million for the remaining six retail units and five office units.
