Tompkins Financial Corporation Reports Record First Quarter Earnings

ITHACA, N.Y.--()--Tompkins Financial Corporation (NYSEMKT:TMP) reported net income of $15.7 million for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 10.8% from the $14.3 million reported for the same period in 2016. Diluted earnings per share were $1.03 for the first quarter of 2017, a 9.6% increase from $0.94 reported for the first quarter of 2016.

President and CEO, Stephen S. Romaine said “We are excited to start off the new year with the best first quarter earnings in our history. Solid loan growth and an improved net interest margin were key drivers of improved earnings over the prior year. At the same time, we have seen continued positive improvement in credit quality trends, with nonperforming assets improved from already low levels.”

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS FOR FOURTH QUARTER:

  • Diluted earnings per share of $1.03 represent the best first quarter in Company history
  • Net interest income was up 9.1% compared to the same period last year, and up 3.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016
  • Net interest margin improved over the most recent prior quarter and over the same period last year
  • Total loans of $4.3 billion were up 12.5% over the same period in 2016; and are up 1.0% over December 31, 2016
  • Total deposits of $4.9 billion reflect an increase of 6.5% over the same period last year, and are up 4.9% from December 31, 2016.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Net interest income of $48.0 million for the first quarter of 2017 increased by $4.0 million, or 9.1% compared to the same period in 2016, and was up 3.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in net interest income over prior year was largely driven by growth in average loans of $472.6 million or 12.5% as well as an improved net interest margin. The net interest margin was 3.38% for the first quarter of 2017, up from 3.30% for the fourth quarter of 2016, and 3.36% for the first quarter of 2016. The margin improvement benefited from improved yields on investment securities as well as maturities of some higher cost borrowings.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income represented 26.4% of total revenues in the first quarter of 2017, compared to 28.4% in the same period in 2016, and 26.0% for the most recent prior quarter. Noninterest income of $17.2 million was down slightly from the same period last year, and up 5.7% over the fourth quarter of 2016. Revenue from Insurance and Investment services are the two largest components of noninterest income, representing 41.3% and 22.0% of noninterest income, respectively at March 31, 2017.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Noninterest expense was $41.4 million for the first quarter of 2017, which was up 4.7% compared to the same period in 2016, and up 5.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in noninterest expense was mainly related to higher salaries and benefits in the first quarter of 2017. The first quarter of 2017 also included $262,000 of deconversion expenses related to a core system conversion planned for this year.

ASSET QUALITY

Asset quality trends remained strong in the first quarter of 2017. Nonperforming loans and leases were down 3.1% compared to first quarter of 2016, and down 7.3% compared to the most recent quarter end. Nonperforming assets represented 0.36% of total assets at March 31, 2017, unchanged from December 31, 2016, and improved slightly from 0.39% at March 31, 2016. Nonperforming asset levels continue to be well below the most recent Federal Reserve Board Peer Group Average1 of 0.57%.

Provision for loan and lease losses was $769,000 for the first quarter of 2017, down from $855,000 for the first quarter of 2016. Net charge-offs for the first quarter of 2017 were $358,000 compared to $329,000 reported in the first quarter of 2016.

The Company’s allowance for originated loan and lease losses totaled $35.9 million at March 31, 2017, and represented 0.92% of total originated loans and leases at March 31, 2017. The ratio is unchanged from the most recent prior quarter and is down from 0.95% one year ago. The total allowance represented 180.02% of total nonperforming loans and leases at March 31, 2017, improved from 164.98% at December 31, 2016, and 156.88% at March 31, 2016.

CAPITAL POSITION

Capital ratios remain well above the regulatory well capitalized minimums. The ratio of Tier 1 capital to average assets of 8.36% at March 31, 2017, compared to 8.41% reported for December 31, 2016. Total capital to risk-weighted assets at March 31, 2017 was 12.41%, compared to 12.22% reported at December 31, 2016. Both ratios are down from the same period last year, in large part due to the redemption of $20.5 million of 7% fixed rate Trust Preferred securities.

(1) Federal Reserve peer ratio as of December 31, 2016, includes banks and bank holding companies with consolidated assets between $3 billion and $10 billion.
(2) "Originated" equals loans and leases not included by definition in "acquired loans".
(3)"Acquired Loans and Leases" equals loans and leases acquired at fair value, accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 805.
(4) Average balances and yields on available-for-sale securities are based on historical amortized cost.
(5) Interest income includes the tax effects of taxable-equivalent basis.
(6) Nonaccrual loans are included in the average asset totals presented above. Payments received on nonaccrual loans have been recognized as disclosed in Note 1 of the Company's consolidated financial statements included in Part I of the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.
(7) Certain acquired loans and leases that are past due are not on nonaccrual and are not included in nonperforming loans. The risk of credit loss on these loans has been considered by virtue of the Corporation's estimate of acquisition-date fair value and these loans are considered accruing as the Corporation primarily recognizes interest income through accretion of the difference between the carrying value of these loans and their expected cash flows.
(8)Earnings per share year-to-date may not equal the sum of the quarterly earnings per share as a result of rounding of average shares.
(9) "Goodwill and intangibles" equal Total Intangible Assets less Mortgage Servicing Rights in the above tables.
(10) The third quarter, second quarter, and first quarter of 2016 information is revised to reflect the impact of the early adoption of ASU 2016-09, "Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting". The early adoption resulted in $847,000, $274,000, $262,000, and $71,000 of excess benefits recognized within "income tax expense" during the three months ended December 31, September 30, June 30, and March 31, 2016, respectively.
