Oct 18, 2018 04:25 pm
BAR HARBOR, Maine -- 

Bar Harbor Bankshares (NYSE American: BHB) reported net income for third quarter 2018 of $9.0 million, or 58 cents per share, compared with $8.6 million, or 56 cents per share, in the same quarter of 2017.

THIRD QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • 14.3% annualized increase in non-maturity deposit accounts
  • 57.9% efficiency ratio (non-GAAP measure)
  • 1.01% return on average assets
  • 9.92% return on average equity
  • 10% annualized growth in tangible book value per share, excluding security adjustments (non-GAAP measure)

President and Chief Executive Officer, Curtis C. Simard stated, “Our third quarter was marked by yet another period of continued focus and execution of our strategies to grow profitability while remaining true to our risk management disciplines including credit. Our GAAP earnings per share this quarter equaled core earnings, which reflect our normalized operations. Tangible book value per share, excluding security adjustments, now exceeds pre-acquisition levels, which were accomplished within two years of the deal closing. We are committed to building long-term shareholder value, as evidenced by continued focus on non-maturity deposits and improvements in our return on assets, return on equity and efficiency ratios.”

“Commercial loans have grown 3% on a year-to-date annualized basis as our teams continue to gain market share within our regions. Commercial loan balances can fluctuate based on timing given some larger deals and a conscious effort to not over extend on terms for the sake of interim periods. We remain true to core banking and cultivating long-term relationships with our customers. Total deposit balances were up 3% on an annualized basis for the quarter including more than a 14% increase in non-maturity deposits. New deposit accounts opened totaled 3,212 for the third quarter and 9,211for the year.”

Mr. Simard went on to say, “We continue to focus on organic growth within our footprint as we expand further into our markets where we see the greatest opportunity to increase shareholder value. We are on track to open our new branch in Manchester, New Hampshire next month with plans for branches in Bedford, New Hampshire and Belfast, Maine next year. These de novo branches will help provide greater service and convenience to our existing customers and the opportunity to further expand our growing deposit base.”

“As you may have read in our press release earlier this month, we announced a strategic expansion with the development of a commercial loan office in Portland, Maine. This opportunity is about being fully engaged in an important commercial market within the state of Maine. We are already actively calling on the commercial accounts in Portland, and by having a physical presence in this market; we will be best positioned to service those needs. To that end, we also announced Daryl Wentworth and Joe Delano have joined our teams, two very seasoned and accomplished leaders in this market. Daryl and Joe combined have over 50 years of experience in both commercial real estate and commercial and industrial lending; they have been recognized as proven idea generators in the middle market space for New England.”

Mr. Simard concluded, “Over the past few quarters we have further defined a culture that cares about our colleagues, customers and community. These ideals, combined with our existing model of balancing growth and earnings while following a steadfast commitment to risk management and controls have given rise to a catalyst for continued financial performance. The measures we have taken are essential to enhancing profitability and achieving our long-term goals. Together and as one team we are focused on providing first class service to our customers and we look forward to a strong close for the year in the fourth quarter.”

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net income was up 5% to $9.0 million, or 58 cents per share, in the third quarter of 2018 compared to $8.6 million, or 56 cents per share, in the same quarter of 2017. Results in the prior year include a $346 thousand charge, or 1 cent per share reduction, from trailing acquisition and conversion costs.

Interest income totaled $32.2 million, up 7% on a year-over-year basis, and yields on loans and investments expanded eleven basis points in total. Net interest margin in the third quarter 2018 decreased to 2.81% from 3.06% in the prior year due to higher cost of funds driven by short-term interest rate hikes. That decrease included a lower contribution from tax-equivalency adjustments of six basis points over the prior year as a result of the lower federal statutory tax rate. The Company's loan to deposit ratio improved 3% over the prior year to 104 at the end of the third quarter. Total deposit growth of 3%, led by 14.3% growth in non-maturity balances, helped to reduce other higher funding cost realized as a result of recent rate increases.

The third quarter provision for loan losses was $643 thousand and exceeded net charge-offs, which follows the positive trend in all quarterly periods presented. Non-interest income increased to $7.1 million or 2.4% from the prior year primarily due to a $685 thousand gain from a partial sale of the Company’s ownership interest in Visa Class B shares. Non-interest expense increased to $17.9 million in the third quarter 2018 from $17.6 million in the same quarter of 2017. The increase is primarily due to higher salary and benefit expense related the build-up of the Company’s talent base with strategic hires. The decrease primarily relates to acquisition, conversion and other expenses, which totaled $70 thousand in 2018 and $346 thousand in 2017. The third quarter effective tax rate decreased to 18.8% in 2018 compared with 29.3% in the same quarter of 2017, reflecting a lower federal statutory tax rate.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Total assets were $3.6 billion at the end of the third quarter 2018, up $20.0 million from the second quarter 2018. Loan balances in the third quarter 2018 were relatively flat with the second quarter with increases in residential products, which were offset by lower commercial loan balances due to higher prepayments and amortization. Asset quality improved during the third quarter with lower non-accrual loans due to activities associated with commercial workouts. Net loan charge-offs continue to be at historic lows and the ratio of credit losses to total loans improved to 0.54% at the end of the third quarter. The Company’s risk-based capital ratio for the third quarter 2018 is expected to be near 14.0% as tangible book value (non-GAAP measure) continued to expand on a quarter-over-quarter basis. Excluding the impact of securities fair value adjustments, earnings grew tangible book value per share (non-GAAP measure) to $17.22 from $16.81 in the second of quarter of 2018.

When used in this earnings release the words "may," "will," "should," "could," "would," "plan," "potential," "estimate," "project," "believe," "intend," "anticipate," "expect," "target" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, but these terms are not the exclusive means of identifying forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to significant risks, assumptions and uncertainties, including among other things, changes in general economic and business conditions, increased competitive pressures, changes in the interest rate environment, legislative and regulatory change, changes in the financial markets, and other risks and uncertainties disclosed from time to time in documents that the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including but not limited to those discussed in the section titled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This document contains certain non-GAAP financial measures in addition to results presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide the reader with additional supplemental perspectives on operating results, performance trends, and financial condition. Non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures; they should be read and used in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financial information. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP measures is provided below. In all cases, it should be understood that non-GAAP measures do not depict amounts that accrue directly to the benefit of shareholders. An item which management excludes when computing non-GAAP adjusted earnings can be of substantial importance to the Company's results for any particular quarter or year. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted earnings information set forth is not necessarily comparable to non- GAAP information which may be presented by other companies. Each non-GAAP measure used by the Company in this report as supplemental financial data should be considered in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financial information.

The Company utilizes the non-GAAP measure of adjusted earnings in evaluating operating trends, including components for adjusted revenue and expense. These measures exclude amounts which the Company views as unrelated to its normalized operations, including securities gains/losses, acquisition costs, restructuring costs, legal settlements, and systems conversion costs. Non-GAAP adjustments are presented net of an adjustment for income tax expense.

The Company also calculates adjusted earnings per share based on its measure of adjusted earnings. The Company views these amounts as important to understanding its operating trends, particularly due to the impact of accounting standards related to acquisition activity. Analysts also rely on these measures in estimating and evaluating the Company's performance. Management also believes that the computation of non-GAAP adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share may facilitate the comparison of the Company to other companies in the financial services industry. The Company also adjusts certain equity related measures to exclude intangible assets due to the importance of these measures to the investment community.

(1) Assumes a marginal tax rate of 23.78% in third quarter 2018 net of adjustment for first and second quarter 2018, which was recorded at a marginal rate of 24.15%. A marginal tax rate of 37.57% was used in 2017.
(2) Non-GAAP financial measure.
(3) Total tangible shareholders' equity is computed by taking total shareholders' equity less the intangible assets at period-end. Total tangible assets is computed by taking total assets less the intangible assets at period-end.
(4) Securities adjustment, net of tax represents the total unrealized loss on available-for-sale securities recorded on the Company's consolidated balance sheets within total common shareholders' equity.
(5) Adjusted return on tangible equity is computed by dividing the total core income adjusted for the tax-effected amortization of intangible assets, assuming a marginal rate of 23.78% in third quarter 2018, 24.15% in first and second quarter 2018 and 37.57% in 2017, by tangible equity.
(6) Efficiency ratio is computed by dividing total core tangible non-interest expense by the sum of total net interest income on a fully taxable equivalent basis and total core non-interest income. The Company uses this non-GAAP measure to provide important information about its operating efficiency.
