Cambridge Bancorp Announces Third Quarter Results

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--()--Cambridge Bancorp (OTCQB: CATC) today reported unaudited net income of $4,575,000 for the third quarter of 2016 compared to $4,355,000 for the same quarter in 2015. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $1.13 for the third quarter of 2016 versus $1.09 for the same quarter in 2015. For the nine months ending September 30, 2016, unaudited net income was $12,473,000 versus $11,824,000 for the same period in 2015. Diluted earnings per share were $3.09 for the nine-month period versus $2.97 for the same period in 2015.

“We are pleased to report another solid increase in the Bank’s quarter-over-quarter performance,” notes Denis K. Sheahan, the Bank’s president and CEO. “Our earnings performance was driven by a sustained trend of growth in loans, which have increased by $119.8 million (10.0%) through September 30, 2016. The Bank recorded strong profitability metrics in the third quarter with return on average assets of 1.02% and return on average stockholders’ equity of 13.59%.”

Net interest income grew to $13.5 million for the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $324,000 (2.5%) over the third quarter of 2015. The increase of $1.3 million (3.4%) in net interest income for the nine-month period of 2016 versus the same period in 2015 was primarily a function of growth in the loan portfolio resulting in higher interest income on loans of $2.5 million (7.4%). Net interest income for the nine-month period was offset by growth in promotionally-priced savings accounts and brokered certificates of deposit which resulted in higher interest expense on total deposits of $891,000 and a decrease in interest on taxable investment securities of $423,000 (9.6%) due to the Bank’s smaller investment portfolio and lower yields.

Noninterest income increased by $1.1 million (17.3%) to $7.6 million for the third quarter of 2016 compared to $6.5 million for the same quarter in 2015. During the fourth quarter of 2015 the Bank began to offer loan level derivative contracts to manage commercial loan interest rate risk. This activity generated $392,000 in loan related income for the third quarter of 2016. Deposit account fees increased by $187,000 due primarily to greater commercial cash management income and gain on loans held for sale increased by $105,000 compared to the same quarter in 2015.

The Bank continued to generate solid Wealth Management income, which totaled $5.5 million for the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $478,000 (9.6%), compared to the same quarter in 2015. Wealth Management assets under management stood at $2.5 billion on September 30, 2016 compared to $2.2 billion on September 30, 2015.

For the third quarter of 2016, noninterest expense totaled $14.2 million, an increase of $1.0 million (8.0%) compared to the same quarter in 2015. The primary factor for the increase in noninterest expense was higher salaries and benefits of $1.0 million (13.6%) as a result of strategic hires and growth in the workforce, along with the cost of retirement plans. Other increases in noninterest expense categories were offset by lower marketing expenses of $124,000 (21.1%).

The industry-wide headwind of contracting margins continued to place a strain on the Bank’s net interest margin. Sustained lower asset yields led to a decrease of eleven basis points in the Bank’s net interest margin for the third quarter of 2016 compared to the same quarter in 2015 and a decrease of ten basis points for the comparable nine-month period.

Total loans outstanding as of September 30, 2016 were $1.3 billion compared to $1.2 billion at the end of last year. The noteworthy growth in the loan portfolio during 2016 is attributable to increases in commercial mortgages of $103.6 million (20.3%), commercial and industrial loans of $13.2 million (31.2%), home equity loans of $9.3 million (14.6%), and consumer loans of $6.9 million (23.7%). The Bank’s residential mortgage portfolio decreased by $13.1 million (2.4%) as more new production is sold on the secondary market.

Non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans stood at 12 basis points on September 30, 2016, relatively unchanged to year-end 2015. Loan quality remains solid and the Allowance for Loan Losses stood at $15.5 million or 1.18% of total loans outstanding at September 30, 2016. At December 31, 2015, the Allowance for Loan Losses was $15.2 million or 1.27% of total loans outstanding. The provision for loan losses for the nine-month period of $338,000 is primarily in response to growth in the loan portfolio.

Total deposits grew by $67.0 million (4.3%) since year-end 2015. A particular highlight in the deposit category was the growth in commercial checking and commercial savings, which have increased by $104.2 million (20.3%) since year-end 2015. Total deposits at third quarter end were $1.6 billion.

Total assets as of September 30, 2016 were $1.8 billion.
