Evans Bancorp Reports Record Net Income for 2018

HAMBURG, N.Y.--()--Evans Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company” or “Evans”) (NYSE American: EVBN), a community financial services company serving Western New York since 1920, today reported its results of operations for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018.

FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2018 HIGHLIGHTS (compared with prior-year period unless otherwise noted)

  • Record annual net income of $16.4 million compared with $10.5 million in 2017, a 56% increase

    Excluding the prior year impact of a $2.1 million write-down of deferred tax asset related to Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”), 2018 net income increased $3.8 million or 30%

  • Achieved fourth quarter net income of $4.5 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, compared with $1.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share

    Excluding the 2017 TCJA write-down of deferred tax asset, net income was up $1.4 million or 44%

  • Net interest income in the fourth quarter increased 11% to $12.4 million driven by higher average loans
  • Average demand deposits in the fourth quarter grew 13%
  • Acquisition of Richardson & Stout Insurance Agency (“R&S”) contributed to total insurance revenue of $9.4 million, an increase of 19%
  • 2018 efficiency ratio improved to 66.87% from 68.50%
  • Opened new Financial Center in downtown Buffalo during fourth quarter 2018

For the full year 2018, net income increased 56% to $16.4 million, or $3.32 per diluted share, from $10.5 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, in 2017. Excluding the impact of TCJA, net income was up $3.8 million, or 30%. The return on average equity was 13.20% for 2018 compared with 9.11% in 2017.

Net income was $4.5 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with $4.8 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, in the trailing third quarter of 2018 and $1.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in last year’s fourth quarter. The decrease from the linked quarter reflects lower insurance fee revenue due to typically higher seasonal commercial lines revenue in the third quarter. The increase over prior-year period reflects higher interest income due to loan growth, a decrease in loan loss provision, and lower income tax expense related to the impact of TCJA. Return on average equity was 13.86% for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with 15.35% in the trailing third quarter of 2018 and 3.32% in the fourth quarter of 2017.

In the fourth quarter we extended the very strong results experienced through 2018, including growth across the board in deposits, loans and fee income, culminating in an outstanding year for earnings with net income up 56%,” said David J. Nasca, President and CEO of Evans Bancorp, Inc. “Initiatives and investments remain aimed at enhancing the client experience and building relationships, scaling our growth from an operational and cost perspective, bolstering our fee-based businesses, and investing back into the communities in which we operate.”

Net interest income increased $0.3 million, or 2%, from the third quarter of 2018, and $1.2 million, or 11%, from the prior-year fourth quarter. The increase was driven by average interest-earning asset growth, particularly loans, partially offset by an increase in interest expense. The increase in interest income reflects growth in the commercial loan portfolio as well as the benefit from the re-pricing of variable rate loans tied to the Company’s prime rate. Average commercial loans, including commercial real estate and commercial and industrial loans, were $913 million, up $91 million from the 2017 fourth quarter. The increase in net interest income from the linked quarter was mainly due to prime rate movements.

Fourth quarter net interest margin of 3.70% decreased 3 basis points from the 2018 third quarter and 9 basis points from the fourth quarter of 2017. The margin has been impacted by rising funding costs due to increases in short-term interest rates, along with very competitive deposit market pricing. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 1.14% compared with 1.04% in the third quarter of 2018 and 0.73% in the fourth quarter of 2017. The Company has experienced a shift in deposit mix as consumers in low-cost legacy savings products have migrated to higher-rate time deposits consistent with the industry. Average time deposits comprised 24% of average total deposits during the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with 23% and 17% in the third quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2017, respectively.

The $0.3 million release of allowance for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2018 reflects a decrease in non- performing loans and marginal loan growth in the quarter.

Our loan production remains focused upon originating within our consistent and prudent risk appetite, which is reflected in our strong credit quality,” stated John Connerton, Chief Financial Officer of Evans Bank. “While many of our credit quality metrics improved during the quarter, we continue to make progress with a small number of larger commercial credits that make up our non-performing loans.”

The increase in deposit service charges from last year’s fourth quarter reflects higher fees related to overdrafts as the Company and its clients continue to benefit from a new product that provides overdraft protection to small businesses.

Insurance revenue decreased $1.0 million from the trailing third quarter due to the seasonal decrease in commercial lines insurance commissions and a decrease in profit sharing revenue. The increase in insurance revenue from the fourth quarter of 2017 primarily relates to the R&S acquisition, which added incremental commercial and personal lines revenue of $0.5 million.

The fourth quarter of 2018 included a $0.9 million net reduction of non-interest income related to an investment in an historic rehabilitation tax credit compared with $0.5 million in the prior-year period. There were no significant historic tax credit transactions in the third quarter of 2018.

In last year’s fourth quarter the Company realized a $0.3 million gain on bank-owned life insurance claim, while there were no claims in the current or linked quarters.

Fourth quarter salaries and benefits costs increased 16% from the prior-year period, and reflect the R&S acquisition and the addition of strategic personnel hires to support the Company’s continued growth. The increase in salaries and employee benefits from the linked quarter was due to year-end incentive adjustments based on the Company’s performance.

The linked quarter increase in advertising and public relations expense reflects additional promotional campaigns for the Company’s lending and insurance products. The increase in technology and communications was due to higher ATM card fees, online banking activity and software costs. The amortization of intangible assets was higher due to the acquisition of R&S.

The decrease in other expense in the fourth quarter of 2018 reflects a $0.3 million contribution to the Evans Bank Foundation Fund (“the Foundation”) made during the fourth quarter of 2017, and a community contribution accrual of $0.4 million recorded in the third quarter of 2018. Evans contributes to, and invests in, community organizations that provide positive, meaningful impact to the Western New York region. Evans has elevated its resource commitment to the community as a function of our continued growth and performance.

The Company’s efficiency ratio in the fourth quarter of 2018 was 69.5% compared with 66.9% in the third quarter of 2018 and 70.4% in last year’s fourth quarter.

During fourth quarter 2018 the Company recognized an income tax benefit of $0.2 million. Excluding the impact of historic tax credit transactions, the fourth quarter 2018 effective tax rate was 23.1%. In the third quarter 2018 income tax expense was $0.3 million, or an effective tax rate of 6.7%. Income taxes were reduced by $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2018 due to a change in estimate of when certain state historic tax credits will be taxable for federal purposes. Excluding this adjustment, the third quarter 2018 effective tax rate was 20.5%. Fourth quarter 2017 income tax expense was $2.2 million, or an effective tax rate of 69.0%. The effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2017, excluding TCJA and historic tax credit impact, was 29.8%.

2018 Year-end Balance Sheet Highlights

Total assets were $1.39 billion as of December 31, 2018, up $7 million, or 1%, from September 30, 2018 and $93 million, or 7%, higher than year-end 2017. The Company had strong loan growth as the portfolio increased $91 million, or 9%, to $1.16 billion during 2018 with the increase predominantly in commercial real estate.

Investment securities were $134 million at December 31, 2018, $4 million lower than the third quarter of 2018, and $16 million lower than at the end of 2017. The primary objectives of the Company’s investment portfolio are to provide liquidity, secure municipal deposits, and maximize income while preserving safety of principal. With the yield curve continuing to flatten, there is a reduced advantage to purchasing longer-term investment securities.

Deposit growth was strong in 2018, increasing 16% to $1.22 billion at December 31, 2018. The year-over-year increase was across all of the Company’s product categories, including demand deposit growth of 6%, NOW account growth of 1%, savings deposit growth of 7%, and time deposit growth of 62%. The largest components of deposit growth during 2018 were time deposits of $115 million, of which $41 million were brokered, and municipal saving deposits of $53 million. Total average demand deposits were $248 million for the 2018 fourth quarter, an increase of $28 million from the fourth quarter of 2017, which was mostly attributable to growth in commercial demand deposits.

The deposit mix has changed industry wide as consumer preferences move toward term products with higher rates. Consumer savings deposits declined $52 million year-over-year, while consumer time deposits increased $74 million.

2018 Year in Review

Net interest income for 2018 was $48.1 million, up 14%, primarily due to strong growth in the Company’s commercial loan portfolio, partially offset by an increase in deposit interest expense and a compressed net interest margin. Net interest margin was 3.77% in 2018, a decrease of 3 basis points.

The Company’s provision for loan losses of $1.4 million was up from $0.7 million due to loan growth, an increase in criticized loans, and an increase in non-performing loans. The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans was 1.64% at December 31, 2018 compared with 1.29% at the end of 2017.

Non-interest income was up $2.2 million, or 17%, to $15.2 million, mainly due to the increase in insurance service and fee revenue of $1.5 million, reflecting the R&S acquisition and commercial lines organic growth.

Non-interest expense increased $4.7 million, or 12%, to $43.3 million. The increase reflects higher salaries and employee benefits of $3.0 million, or 12%, due to the R&S acquisition, merit increases, higher incentive compensation and the addition of new employees as part of the Company’s planned growth strategy. Technology expenses were up 18%, or $0.5 million, to $3.4 million largely due to increased ATM card fees, online banking activity and software costs. FDIC insurance expense increased $0.3 million, or 38%, as a result of higher average assets due to loan growth. Amortization of intangibles increased $0.2 million due to the acquisition of R&S.

The efficiency ratio for 2018 improved to 66.87% from 68.50%.

Income tax expense for the year was $2.3 million, representing an effective tax rate of 12.2% compared with an effective tax rate of 33.2% in 2017. The decrease in the effective tax rate was due to the $2.1 million charge relating to TCJA in 2017, the lowering of the Company’s federal tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018, and historic tax credit transactions.

Capital Management

The Company consistently maintains regulatory capital ratios measurably above the Federal “well capitalized” standard, including a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 9.73% at December 31, 2018 compared with 9.60% at September 30, 2018 and 10.11% at December 31, 2017. Book value per share increased to $27.13 at December 31, 2018 compared with $26.03 at September 30, 2018 and $24.74 at December 31, 2017.

In 2018, the Company paid cash dividends of $0.92 per common share, up 15%.

Outlook

Mr. Nasca concluded, “We are especially pleased that our strategic focus on acquiring and retaining top talent, building client relationships, and adding value to those relationships continues to produce strong financial performance. This performance allows us to grow and deliver for our clients while reinvesting in the community and strengthening the economic and social fabric of our markets.

We are approaching a century of serving Western New York, and we firmly believe that our long-term success reflects our commitment to continuing to perform, as shown by our record earnings in 2018 and over the last several years. We believe we can further build on this momentum.”
