German American Bancorp, Inc. (GABC) Reports Second Quarter Earnings

Company Release - 7/30/2018 5:00 PM ET

JASPER, Ind., July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- German American Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:GABC) reported quarterly earnings of $11.1 million, or $0.48 per share in the second quarter of 2018.  This level of quarterly earnings performance was an increase of approximately $1.3 million, or 12% on a per share basis, over second quarter 2017 net income of $9.8 million, or $0.43 per share.  On a year-to-date basis, reported earnings for the first six months of 2018 were $22.9 million, or $1.00 per share, which represents an increase of $3.5 million, or 18% on a per share basis, over the first half  2017 net income of $19.4 million, or $0.85 per share.

2018 second quarter enhanced financial performance relative to that of the same quarter last year was largely attributable to a $2.7 million, or 11%, increase in net interest income, which was driven by the Company’s higher level of average loans outstanding.  Average loans outstanding during the second quarter of 2018 increased by $218.5 million, or 11%, relative to the average loans outstanding during the second quarter of 2017.  This increase in average loans was driven by organic loan growth from the Company’s existing branch footprint, and, to a lesser extent, from the growth related to the five-branch acquisition the Company completed on May 18, 2018.

Other significant positive contributors to the 2018/2017 quarter-over-quarter earnings comparison included a $1.1 million, or 14%, increase in other non-interest income, driven by a $558,000, or 48%, increase in interchange fee income, an additional $327,000, or 24%, in trust and investment product fees, and a $165,000, or 11%, increase in deposit service charges.  Partially offsetting this $3.8 million revenue increase were $2.7 million of elevated total non-interest expenses, of which approximately $904,000 ($727,000 or $0.03 per share, on an after-tax basis) were acquisition related expenses in connection with the five-branch acquisition that closed on May 18, 2018 and the pending acquisition of First Security, Inc. that was announced on May 22, 2018. The 2018 second quarter results also included an $870,000 increase in the Company’s provision for loan losses.

2018 second quarter and year-to-date reported net income and earnings per share were also positively impacted by the federal income tax reform legislation, which reduced the Company’s corporate federal income tax statutory rate of 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018.  The Company’s effective tax rate during the second quarter and the first half of 2018, was approximately 17.3%.

Mark A. Schroeder, German American’s Chairman & CEO, stated, "The second quarter of 2018 marked another period of strong growth for our Company.  During the quarter, we grew total end-of-period loan balances, on an organic basis, by over $50 million, or 10% on an annualized basis, and acquired approximately $116 million in end-of-period loans and $123 million in end-of-period deposits as a result of the previously noted five-branch network acquisition in the Columbus and Greensburg, Indiana markets.   Furthermore, we also announced a pending merger transaction during the quarter with Owensboro, Kentucky-based First Security, Inc., which reported total assets of approaching $600 million, total loans of approximately $400 million and total deposits of approximately $450 million, as of the announcement date.

Schroeder continued, “This combination of First Security and German American, which is anticipated to be completed during the fourth quarter of this year, represents our Company’s entry into Owensboro, Bowling Green, and Lexington, Kentucky, three of largest and most vibrant metropolitan markets in the Commonwealth.  Following completion of this transaction, German American’s consolidated total assets are projected to be nearly $4.0 billion, with a total loan portfolio of approximately $2.7 billion and total deposit balances of approximately $3.0 billion.  We are extremely pleased with the pattern of consistent organic and acquisition-related balance sheet growth and earnings improvement we’ve generated not only during the past quarter but over an extended period of time.  We look forward to further enhancement of long-term shareholder value through a continuation of this historic pattern of ongoing earnings and balance sheet growth in the coming months and years.”

The Company also announced its Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share, which will be payable on August 20, 2018 to shareholders of record as of August 10, 2018.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Total assets for the Company increased to $3.345 billion at June 30, 2018, representing an increase of $219.5 million, or 28% on an annualized basis, compared with March 31, 2018 and an increase of $339.7 million, or 11%, compared with June 30, 2017.  The increase in total assets was driven by the acquisition of a five-branch network in the Columbus and Greensburg, Indiana markets as well as organic loan growth.

At June 30, 2018, total loans increased $168.0 million, or 31% on an annualized basis, compared with March 31, 2018 and increased $286.7 million, or 14%, compared with June 30, 2017.  At June 30, 2018, the loans acquired as a part of the branch acquisition which closed on May 18, 2018, totaled $115.7 million.  At June 30, 2018, total loans, excluding those acquired as a part of the branch acquisition,  increased $52.2 million, or approximately 10% on an annualized basis, compared with March 31, 2018 and increased $170.9 million, or 8%, compared with June 30, 2017.

The increase in total loans, excluding those acquired as a part of the branch acquisition, during the second  quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 was driven by an increase of approximately $10.4 million, or 9% on an annualized basis, of commercial and industrial loans, an increase of $13.8 million, or 6% on an annualized basis, of commercial real estate loans, an increase of $20.9 million, or 25% on an annualized basis, of agricultural loans and an increase of $7.1 million, or 7% on annualized basis, of retail loans.

The Company’s allowance for loan losses totaled $15.6 million at June 30, 2018 compared to $14.5 million at March 31, 2018 and $15.3 million at June 30, 2017.  The allowance for loan losses represented 0.67% of period-end loans at June 30, 2018 compared with 0.67% of period-end loans at March 31, 2018 and 0.75% of period-end loans at June 30, 2017.  From time to time, the Company has acquired loans through bank and branch acquisitions with the most recent being a branch acquisition in the second quarter of 2018.  Under acquisition accounting treatment, loans acquired are recorded at fair value which includes a credit risk component, and therefore the allowance on loans acquired is not carried over from the seller.  The Company held a net discount on acquired loans of $9.6 million as of June 30, 2018, $7.3 million at March 31, 2018 and $8.4 million at June 30, 2017.

Total deposits increased $134.3 million, or 22% on an annualized basis, as of June 30, 2018 compared with March 31, 2018 and increased $238.1 million, or 10%, compared with June 30, 2017. The increase in total deposits during the second quarter of 2018 compared with March 31, 2018 was largely driven by the previously discussed branch acquisition.   At June 30, 2018, the deposits acquired as a part of the branch acquisition totaled approximately $122.7 million.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, net interest income totaled $27,469,000, which represented an increase of $1,859,000, or 7%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2018 net interest income of $25,610,000 and an increase of $2,656,000, or 11%, compared with the quarter ended June 30, 2017 net interest income of $24,813,000. The increased level of net interest income during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the both the first quarter of 2018 and second quarter of 2017 was driven primarily by a higher level of average earning assets and an improved net interest margin.  The increased level of average earning assets in the second quarter of 2018 was driven by organic loan growth from the Company's existing branch footprint combined with growth related to the branch acquisition completed during the quarter.

The tax equivalent net interest margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 was 3.77% compared with 3.66% in the first quarter of 2018 and 3.83% in the second quarter of 2017.  The lower federal income tax rates during 2018 had an approximately 9 basis point negative impact on the Company's net interest margin in both the first and second quarters of 2018 compared with 2017.  The improvement in the net interest margin,  excluding the impact of the lower federal tax rates, during second quarter of 2018 compared to both comparative periods was related to the positive impact on earning asset yields caused by the continued increase in short-term market interest rates partially offset by an increased cost of funds also related to the increased short-term interest rates.

Accretion of loan discounts on acquired loans contributed approximately 7 basis points to the net interest margin on an annualized basis in the second quarter of 2018, 4 basis points in the first quarter of 2018, and 10 basis points in the second quarter of 2017.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company recorded a provision for loan loss of $1,220,000 compared with a provision for loan loss of $350,000 for both the first quarter of 2018 and the second quarter of 2017.  The increase in provision during the second quarter of 2018 was largely related to allocations for classified loans and qualitative factors related to past due loans.  The provision during all periods was done in accordance with the Company's standard methodology for determining the adequacy of its allowance for loan loss.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, non-interest income totaled $8,882,000, a decrease of $610,000, or 6%, compared with the quarter ended March 31, 2018, and an increase of $1,085,000, or 14%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.

Trust and investment product fees declined $96,000, or 5%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $327,000, or 24%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.  The increase in the second quarter of 2018 compared with the second quarter of 2017 was largely attributable to increased assets under management in the  Company's wealth advisory group.

Insurance revenues declined $1,234,000, or 42%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared with the first quarter of 2018 and declined $48,000, or 3%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.  The decline during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 was primarily due to contingency revenue.  Contingency revenue during the first quarter of 2018 totaled $1,218,000 compared with no contingency revenue during the second quarter of 2018 or second quarter of 2017.  The fluctuation in contingency revenue is a normal course of business variance and is reflective of claims and loss experience with insurance carriers that the Company represents through its property and casualty insurance agency.  Typically, the majority of contingency revenue is recognized during the first quarter of the year.

Interchange fees increased $232,000, or 16%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $558,000, or 48%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.  The increase during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 was largely attributable to increased card utilization by customers.  The increase during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the second quarter of 2017 was attributable to increased card utilization by customers and also attributable to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard effective January 1, 2018.  While the adoption of the standard did not have a significant impact on the Company's financial results, the recording of revenue gross versus net of certain expenses, in accordance with the standard, did result in the reclassification of some expenses associated with the interchange fee revenue during the first half of 2018.

Other operating income increased $309,000, or 51%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $283,000, or 45%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.  The  increase in the second quarter of 2018 compared with both comparative periods was largely attributable to increased merchant card services revenue.

Net gains on sales of loans increased $255,000, or 39%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and declined $54,000, or 6%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.  Loan sales totaled $32.1 million during the second quarter of 2018, compared with $29.9 million during the first quarter of 2018 and $29.8 million during the second quarter of 2017.

The Company realized $74,000 in gains on sales of securities during the second quarter of 2018 compared with $270,000 during the first quarter of 2018 and no gains in the second quarter of 2017.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, non-interest expense totaled $21,708,000, an increase of $1,253,000, or 6%, compared with the quarter ended March 31, 2018, and an increase of $2,712,000, or 14%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.   The second quarter of 2018 included acquisition related expenses of a non-recurring nature of approximately $904,000  (approximately $727,000 or $0.03 per share, on an after-tax basis) for the five-branch acquisition that closed on May 18, 2018 and the pending acquisition of First Security, Inc. that was also announced in May 2018.  The first quarter of 2018 included acquisition costs of approximately $186,000 (approximately $139,000 or less than $0.01 per share on an after-tax basis) related to these transactions.

Salaries and benefits declined $107,000, or just under 1%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $559,000, or 5%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.  The increase in salaries and benefits during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the second quarter of 2017 was primarily attributable to an increased number of full-time equivalent employees.

Occupancy, furniture and equipment expense increased $118,000, or 5%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $303,000, or 14%, compared to the second quarter of 2017.  The increase during the second quarter of 2018 compared to both the first quarter of 2018 and the second quarter of 2017 was primarily due to operating costs related to the acquisition of the five banking branches in the Columbus and Greensburg, Indiana markets as well as other facilities the Company has placed into service over the past twelve months.

Data processing fees increased $271,000, or 24%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $354,000, or 34%, compared to the second quarter of 2017.  The increase during the second quarter of 2018 compared with all periods presented was largely related to conversion costs associated with the aforementioned branch acquisition.

Professional fees increased $490,000, or 56%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $448,000, or 49%, compared to the second quarter of 2017.  The increase during the second quarter of 2018 compared with all periods presented was largely related to professional fees associated with the five-branch acquisition that closed on May 18, 2018 and the pending acquisition of First Security, Inc. that was also announced in May 2018.

Advertising and promotion expense increased $156,000, or 22%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $227,000, or 36%, compared to the second quarter of 2017.  The increase during the second quarter of 2018 compared to all periods presented was the result of the branch acquisition completed during the second quarter of 2018 and increased contributions throughout the Company's market areas.

Other operating expenses increased $224,000, or 8%, during the second quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2018 and increased $751,000, or 33%, compared with the second quarter of 2017.  The increase in the second quarter of 2018 compared with the second quarter of 2017 was largely attributable to the adoption of the revenue recognition standard effective January 1, 2018 and the reclassification of expense as previously discussed.

The Company’s effective income tax rate was 17.3% during the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared with an effective tax rate of 17.4% during the first quarter of 2018 and 25.8% during the second quarter of 2017.  The Company's effective tax rate and provision for income tax was positively impacted during the first two quarters of 2018 by the reduction of federal income tax rates from a statutory rate of 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018 related to the federal tax reform legislation enacted during the fourth quarter of 2017.
