S.Y. Bancorp Reports Record Earnings for 2012 as Net Income Increases 9% to $25.8 Million or $1.85 Per Diluted Share

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--()--S.Y. Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYBT), parent company of Stock Yards Bank & Trust Company, with offices in the Louisville, Indianapolis and Cincinnati metropolitan markets, today reported record earnings for 2012 together with higher net income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. These achievements reflected continued strong trends in the Company's banking operations, especially with increased gains on sales of mortgage loans, which helped blunt the impact of accelerated loan repayments and margin compression related to the unprecedented low interest rate environment. The following is a summary of the Company's reported results:

Return on average assets 1.25 % 1.20 %
 

Fourth quarter results included:

  • A $740 thousand prepayment penalty received on $15 million tax-free loan, resulting in tax equivalent income of $1.1 million. The repayment of this loan will reduce 2013 net interest margin by approximately seven basis points and reduce 2013 net income by approximately $1.4 million.
  • A $1.1 million prepayment penalty paid by the Company for the early repayment of approximately $30 million in FHLB advances, which will save $2.1 million in cumulative future interest expense.

"We are pleased to report another record year of earnings and a solid financial performance for 2012," said David P. Heintzman, Chairman and CEO. "In spite of the uncertainties and challenges that have overshadowed our economy for many years, our record earnings continued to translate into attractive returns on assets and equity for our stockholders. These results underscore significant contributions from key profit areas like commercial banking, investment management and trust, and our mortgage origination business. With respect to the last area, our mortgage loan origination group more than doubled its revenue from the prior year as customers took advantage of historically low rates to refinance as well as purchase new homes.

"Looking at this progress from a geographic standpoint," Heintzman continued, "our continued growth in total assets, loans and deposits demonstrates the success of our strategy to capitalize on a strong community bank presence in Louisville and increasing visibility in Indianapolis and Cincinnati. Thinking about our business in terms of revenue sources, banking continues to be the most significant area, yet growth in investment management and trust, along with mortgage lending, helped increase non-interest income to 34% of total revenues from 32% in 2011."

Heintzman also pointed out that in December 2012, the Company announced an acquisition that will benefit Stock Yards Bank & Trust by expanding its Louisville footprint to an adjacent county with the highest household income in the state. "On December 19, 2012, we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire The Bancorp, Inc. ("Bancorp") in a cash-and-stock transaction valued at approximately $19.9 million," he said. "Bancorp, headquartered in La Grange, Kentucky, is the holding company for THE BANK – Oldham County, Inc., which has four branches, one each in La Grange, Louisville, Crestwood and Prospect. The combination of our two banks should create the largest locally owned community bank in the Louisville MSA in terms of deposits relative to the total deposits in the MSA."

As of September 30, 2012, THE BANK – Oldham County had approximately $137.4 million in assets, $46.8 million in loans, $114.9 million in deposits and $19.4 million in tangible common equity. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval, the approval of the shareholders of Bancorp and other customary conditions, is anticipated to close early in the second quarter of 2013. It is expected to be slightly accretive to earnings per share for 2013, excluding transaction costs, and more so thereafter.

Concluding, Heintzman said, "We are pleased with the Company's results for 2012 and the continuation of our record of success; however, the outlook for next year is clearly more challenging as we anticipate ongoing margin compression due to the low interest rate environment and highly competitive lending conditions. Still, we are well positioned fundamentally in our markets with a strong line-up of products and services, like our investment management and trust services, which clearly differentiates Stock Yards Bank & Trust from most other community banks, and with the Bank's impending cross-county expansion via the acquisition of Bancorp. While we remain cautious on the economy next year, we gain confidence from the Company's proven ability to deliver superior long-term performance, which has enabled our continued ranking as one of the top-performing community banks in the country."

During 2012, S.Y. Bancorp's total assets increased $95.2 million or 5%, reaching $2.15 billion at December 31, 2012, compared with $2.05 billion at December 31, 2011. The loan portfolio year over year reflected growth of almost 3%; however, net growth in loans was more than 4% exclusive of a $40 million loan that the Bank originated and participated $25 million to other banks, with Stock Yards Bank & Trust retaining certain control. This loan was repaid in 2012, which reduced loan totals by $40 million, but also eliminated other liabilities of $25 million representing the participating amount. Loan production for the year totaled more than $400 million, the highest level on record, but that was obscured by accelerated loan payments.

The Company's capital levels continued to strengthen during the fourth quarter of 2012 on a sequential-quarter basis. The Company's Tier 1 leverage ratio, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio and Total risk-based capital ratio were 10.79%, 13.17% and 14.42%, respectively, at December 31, 2012, with each exceeding the required minimum of 5%, 6% and 10%, respectively, necessary to be deemed a "well-capitalized" institution – the highest capital rating for financial institutions. The Total risk-based capital ratio declined slightly from levels at December 31, 2011, as a result of the Company's first quarter 2012 prepayment of $10 million of subordinated debentures that qualified as Tier 2 capital.

The ratio of tangible common equity to total tangible assets was 9.52% at December 31, 2012, 9.55% at September 30, 2012, and 9.11% as of December 31, 2011 (see reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures later in this release). The Company intends to maintain capital ratios at historically high levels, at least until such time as the economy demonstrates sustained improvement, and to remain well positioned to pursue expansion and other opportunities that may arise.

Net interest income – the Company's largest source of revenue – increased $294,000 or 2% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $18.3 million from $18.0 million in the year-earlier period. This increase reflected primarily growth in the loan portfolio. The increased amount of interest earning assets also helped the Company offset the impact of ongoing margin compression. In the fourth quarter of 2012, net interest margin was 3.78% versus 3.91% in the fourth quarter of 2011 and 3.92% in the third quarter of 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2012, net interest income increased $3.2 million or 5% to $74.0 million from $70.7 million in the prior-year period. Net interest margin for year ended December 31, 2012, decreased five basis points to 3.94% from 3.99% a year ago.

Net interest margin in 2012 has reflected a higher amount of prepayment fees associated with a surge in loan refinancing activity. Adjusting for these sources of additional income, the Company's more normalized or core net interest margin has trended downward throughout 2012, declining to 3.74% for the fourth quarter from 3.85% for third quarter, 3.94% in the second quarter, and 4.00% for the first quarter (see reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures later in this release). The core net margin for the year 2012 declined 13 basis points to 3.88% from 4.01% for the year 2011. Management believes these core margins better reveal the increasing pressure of a low interest rate environment and a highly competitive loan market, and it expects margin compression to continue in 2013, with net interest margins declining up to 30 basis points from 2012.

Non-performing loans (NPLs) totaled $30.0 million or 1.90% of total loans outstanding at December 31, 2012, down from $31.2 million or 1.98% of total loans outstanding at September 30, 2012, but up from $23.3 million or 1.51% of total loans at December 31, 2011. Non-performing assets (NPAs), which include NPLs, OREO and repossessed assets, were $37.4 million or 1.74% of total assets at December 31, 2012, down from $38.1 million or 1.81% of total assets at September 30, 2012, but up from $31.1 million or 1.51% of total assets at December 31, 2011. The Company strives to identify risk in its portfolio early and establish an allocation based on the Company's allowance methodology.

Net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $1.8 million or 0.12% of average loans compared with net charge-offs of $3.0 million or 0.19% of average loans in the third quarter of 2012 and $2.4 million or 0.16% of average loans in the year-earlier period. Net charge-offs for the year ended December 31, 2012, were 0.60% of average loans compared with 0.55% of average loans in the prior-year period.

The Company's loan loss provision for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.5 million, resulting in an allowance for loan losses of 2.01% of total loans as of December 31, 2012. This compared with $2.5 million and 1.98%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2012 and $3.1 million and 1.93%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2011. Overall, management believes that the pace of loan downgrades continues to slow and an increasing number of loans are being upgraded. Problem loan resolution will continue to be a challenge going forward as the overall level of NPLs remains at a historically high level after peaking in the second quarter of 2012, but still compares favorably versus peers.

Although the Company sees some signs of an economic recovery in its markets and with its customers generally, management has not seen convincing signs that business conditions have begun to strengthen on a sustained and consistent basis. Accordingly, S.Y. Bancorp intends to remain cautious in assessing the potential risk in its loan portfolio. The Company expects the allowance for loan losses and other credit costs to remain at high levels compared with pre-recession amounts until there are clearer signs of economic recovery and credit metrics begin to show stronger improvement. Still, while NPLs and NPAs are above the Company's historic range for these metrics, they have continued to trend significantly better than those of $1-to-$2.5 billion publicly traded banks, which as of September 30, 2012, (fourth quarter peer data is not yet available) posted average NPLs and NPAs of 3.27% and 3.89% respectively, according to a leading source for industry data.

Non-interest income increased $898,000 or 10% to $10.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with $9.2 million in the same quarter last year. The quarter-over-quarter increase primarily reflected a doubling of gains on sales of mortgage loans held for sale, which increased $714,000 or 98% in the fourth quarter. The Company's largest source of non-interest income, investment management and trust, grew $307,000 or 9% in the fourth quarter and closed the year with $1.96 billion in assets under management. Brokerage fees and commissions were up $143,000 or 24% on a comparable basis in the fourth quarter of 2012. Non-interest income increased $5.2 million or 16% to $38.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared with $33.2 million in the same period last year, primarily due to the same trends seen in the fourth quarter. It is noteworthy that the investment management and trust services department achieved a record level of new account openings during 2012, which will generate estimated annualized revenue of $1.4 million.

Non-interest expense increased $456,000 or 3% to $17.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $16.7 million in the same period last year. The increase in non-interest expense was due primarily to higher personnel costs, reflecting staffing additions across the Company's operations as it prepares for future growth, normal salary increases and a higher performance-based bonus accrual associated with the Company's improved performance in 2012. Non-interest expense increased $5.9 million or 10% to $65.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, from $59.6 million for 2011 and reflected the same trends seen in the fourth quarter as well as increased charge-downs and carrying costs on OREO. The Company's fourth quarter efficiency ratio was 59.15% compared with 60.57% in the fourth quarter of 2011; for the year, the efficiency ratio was 57.38% versus 56.47% for 2011.

It should be noted that the Company's fourth quarter results reflected a higher effective income tax rate versus the comparable period last year due to a benefit of approximately $700,000 of tax adjustments in the prior-year quarter associated with tax-advantaged investments. Net income before income taxes, which excludes the impact of these tax adjustments, increased 18% in the fourth quarter of 2012 versus the year-earlier quarter, thus more clearly demonstrating the Company's fundamental operating strength.

In November 2012, S.Y. Bancorp's Board of Directors increased its quarterly cash dividend 5% to $0.20 per common share. The latest dividend was distributed on December 31, 2012, to stockholders of record as of December 10, 2012.
