Press Release

Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2019 Earnings and Declares Quarterly Dividend

Company Release - 7/25/2019 3:21 PM ET

MILLERSBURG, Pa., July 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. (“Mid Penn”) (NASDAQ: MPB), the parent company of Mid Penn Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income to common shareholders (earnings) for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $4,403,000 or $0.52 per common share basic and diluted, compared to earnings of $2,779,000 or $0.45 per common share basic and diluted for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.  The second quarter 2019 earnings per share (EPS) represents an increase of over 15 percent compared to the EPS for the second quarter of 2018.

Earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were $8,480,000 or $1.00 per common share basic and diluted, compared to earnings of $3,783,000 or $0.63 per common share basic and diluted for the six months ended June 30, 2018.  The results for the six months ended June 30, 2018 included merger and acquisition expenses resulting from (i) Mid Penn’s legal closing of its acquisition of The Scottdale Bank & Trust Company (“Scottdale”) on January 8, 2018, and (ii) Mid Penn entering into a merger agreement with First Priority Financial Corp. (“First Priority”) on January 16, 2018 (the First Priority acquisition legally closed on July 31, 2018).  No merger and acquisition expenses were recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2019.  Adjusted earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2018, when excluding the after-tax impact of merger and acquisition expenses (with such adjusted earnings being a non-GAAP measure), were $5,428,000 or $0.90 per share basic and diluted.  The increase in adjusted earnings per share for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to the same period in 2018, was $0.10 per share or 11 percent.  Please refer to the section included herein under the heading “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures (Unaudited)” for a discussion of our use of non-GAAP adjusted financial information, which includes tables reconciling GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted financial measures for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 and certain other periods. 

Tangible book value per common share, a non-GAAP measure that is regularly reported in the banking industry and the most directly comparable non-GAAP measure to book value per share, favorably increased to $19.13 as of June 30, 2019, compared to $18.10 as of December 31, 2018, and $18.58 as of June 30, 2018.  Mid Penn’s book value per share increased to $27.32 at June 30, 2019, compared to $26.38 as of December 31, 2018, and $23.15 at June 30, 2018.   

Mid Penn also reported total assets of $2,136,122,000 as of June 30, 2019, reflecting an increase of $58,141,000 or 3 percent compared to total assets of $2,077,981,000 as of December 31, 2018, and an increase of $720,475,000 or 51 percent compared to total assets of $1,415,647,000 as of June 30, 2018.  Asset growth during the first six months of 2019 was primarily attributable to (i) net organic loan growth, (ii) an increase in liquid assets primarily from demand deposit growth, and (iii) the recording of operating and finance lease right of use assets as a result of Mid Penn’s adoption of Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) 842 – Leases effective January 1, 2019, which required adopting entities to record a right of use asset and related liability for leases of property or equipment.

A significant portion of the asset growth in the twelve months ending June 30, 2019 resulted from Mid Penn’s acquisition of First Priority which legally closed effective July 31, 2018.  In general, the results of operations and the financial condition as of and for the periods ended June 30, 2019, as compared to prior periods and certain period-end dates in 2018, have been materially impacted by Mid Penn’s 2018 acquisitions of First Priority and Scottdale.

Mid Penn also reported that its Board of Directors, at a meeting held on July 24, 2019, declared a quarterly dividend per common share of $0.18 payable on August 26, 2019, to shareholders of record as of August 7, 2019. 

PRESIDENT’S STATEMENT

Mid Penn’s results for both the second quarter and the first half of 2019 reflect our continued core performance and growth in our legacy markets, and the accretive benefit of our 2018 acquisitions, which expanded our footprint into the Southeastern Pennsylvania and Western Pennsylvania markets.  In addition to these efforts which resulted in greater profitability, we remain focused on providing sound returns and increasing value to our shareholders, reflected by both our $0.18 quarterly dividend and the $1.03 year-to-date increase in our tangible book value per share.  Through our successful business development efforts for the six months ended June 30, 2019, we have increased total loans outstanding at an annualized growth rate of 8 percent, and increased deposits at an annualized growth rate of 6 percent, and despite the challenges of a competitive market interest rate environment, we increased our taxable-equivalent net interest margin to 3.69% compared to 3.53% for the same six-month period in 2018.  We are confident that as we look to the remainder of 2019 and beyond, the impact of our core organic growth, and the longer-term benefits of our recent acquisitions, will continue to have accretive benefits as we further implement new business development activities and overhead cost control measures.

OPERATING RESULTS

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income was $17,770,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $6,356,000 or 56 percent compared to net interest income of $11,414,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  Through the first six months of 2019, net interest income was $35,076,000, an increase of $12,784,000 or 57 percent compared to net interest income of $22,292,000 for the same period in 2018.  The primary source of the net interest income growth for both the three and six month periods was an increase in interest and fees on loans, as total loans increased $651,694,000 or 63 percent since June 30, 2018.  The substantial increase in total loans outstanding from June 30, 2018 to June 30, 2019 was comprised of organic loan growth of $185,756,000 and $465,938,000 of loans acquired from First Priority.

Net interest income for the second quarter of 2019 increased by $464,000 compared to net interest income for the first quarter of 2019 as increases from both loan growth and increasing yields on interest-earning assets more than offset increases in both the volume and costs of deposits, particularly money market accounts.  The increase in the cost of funds for the second quarter of 2019, compared to both the first quarter in 2019 and previous quarters in 2018, was impacted by the four 0.25% Federal Open Market Committee (“FOMC”) rate increases during 2018, which resulted in both increased deposit rates and short-term borrowing costs for liquidity management.

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, Mid Penn’s tax-equivalent net interest margin was 3.69% compared to 3.55% for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  For the six months ended June 30, 2019, Mid Penn’s tax-equivalent net interest margin was 3.69% versus 3.53% for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Year-over-year increases in yields on interest-earning assets and growth in noninterest-bearing deposits more than offset the impact of both (i) the rising cost of both deposit and borrowed funds as a result of the FOMC rate increases in 2018, and (ii) the higher volume of wholesale funding sources, including brokered time deposits and subordinated debt assumed in the First Priority acquisition, and other short-term borrowings added since June 30, 2018 to support liquidity and interest rate management while also partially funding loan growth.

Noninterest Income

During the three months ended June 30, 2019, noninterest income totaled $2,874,000, an increase of $961,000 or 50 percent, compared to noninterest income of $1,913,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  For the six months ended June 30, 2019, noninterest income totaled $4,923,000, an increase of $1,363,000 or 38 percent, compared to noninterest income of $3,560,000 for the same period in 2018.

Income from fiduciary activities was $706,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $180,000 or over 34 percent, compared to fiduciary income of $526,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. These additional revenues were attributed to continued growth in trust assets under management, and increased sales of retail investment products, as a result of successful business development efforts by Mid Penn’s trust and wealth management team.

Mortgage banking income was $1,514,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $1,153,000 or over 300 percent compared to mortgage banking income for the six months ended June 30, 2018.  Longer-term mortgage interest rates have declined significantly in the first six months of 2019, resulting in a higher level of mortgage originations and secondary-market loan sales during the first six months of 2019 when compared to the same period in 2018.  Additionally, Mid Penn expanded its team of residential mortgage originators in southeastern Pennsylvania during the first quarter of 2019, contributing to the larger volume of mortgage loans originated and sold in the six months ended June 30, 2019.

ATM debit card interchange income was $714,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $123,000 or over 20 percent compared to interchange income of $591,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase resulted from increasing card-transaction usage across our customer base, as well as the added volume from demand deposit accounts assumed in the First Priority acquisition.

Other income was $749,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of $97,000 compared to other income of $846,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018.  Although wire transfer and other fees increased in 2019, these were more than offset by a decline in pension settlement gain income year over year. During the first half of 2018, Mid Penn recognized $290,000 of defined benefit pension plan settlement gains from certain plan participants receiving lump sum benefit payouts (the plan and related liabilities were assumed as a result of the Scottdale acquisition).  During the first half of 2019, a lower amount of pension plan lump sum payouts occurred, with related settlement gains totaling $37,000.

Net gains on sales of securities were $24,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of $78,000 compared to net gains on sales of securities of $102,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. During the first half of 2018, some investment securities acquired from Scottdale were subsequently sold at gains to ensure that the overall portfolio was in alignment with Mid Penn’s investment management objectives.  The volume of investment sales, and realized gains, were less during the first six months of 2019, with such sales related to interest rate and liquidity management.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2019 totaled $14,796,000, an increase of $4,700,000 or 47 percent compared to noninterest expenses of $10,096,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  For the six months ended June 30, 2019, noninterest expense totaled $29,099,000, an increase of $7,820,000 or 37 percent, compared to noninterest expense of $21,279,000 for the same period in 2018.  The significant increase in noninterest expense was driven by continued franchise expansion which occurred in the twelve months following June 30, 2018, including (i) the acquisition of First Priority in July 2018 and the associated staff, facilities, and technology licensing costs, and (ii) the expansion of Mid Penn’s mortgage banking division in the southeastern Pennsylvania market.

Salaries and employee benefits expenses were $15,545,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $5,649,000 or 57 percent, versus the same period in 2018, with the increase primarily attributable to (i) the retail staff additions at the eight retail locations added through the First Priority acquisition, effective July 31, 2018, (ii) the back-office and loan originator staff additions as a result of the expansion of the mortgage banking division, and (iii) the addition of commercial lending and credit administration personnel and other staff additions in alignment with Mid Penn’s core banking growth.

Occupancy expenses increased $1,078,000 or 65 percent during the first six months of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.  Similarly, equipment expense increased $333,000 or 35 percent during the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018.  These increases related to the incremental facilities operating costs including rent, utilities, and depreciation expense for the buildings and equipment associated with (i) the acquisition of the First Priority retail offices, and (ii) an investment in a corporate administrative facility to promote long-term operational and processing efficiencies by centralizing several back-office functions supporting the broader franchise. 

FDIC assessment expense was $673,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $352,000 or 110 percent compared to $321,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018.  The increase in assessment expense generally reflects the larger total asset profile (from both acquisition and organic growth activity) upon which the assessment is based. 

Legal and professional fees for the six months ended June 30, 2019 increased by $413,000 or 86 percent compared to the same period in 2018 due to increased use of third-party providers for audit and risk assessment activities, information technology support, and human resources services.

Software licensing and utilization costs were $2,132,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $448,000 or 27 percent compared to $1,684,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase is a result of additional costs to license (i) the locations and staff for the First Priority offices, the Pillow branch, and the expanded mortgage banking division, all of which were added after June 30, 2018; (ii) upgrades to internal systems to enhance data management and storage capabilities given the larger company profile; and (iii) increases in certain core processing fees as our customer base and account/transaction volumes continue to grow.

Intangible amortization increased from $496,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2018 to $723,000 during the same period in 2019 due to the core deposit intangible asset added from the First Priority acquisition in July 2018 which, similar to previously recorded core deposit intangibles, is being amortized using the sum of the years’ digit method over a ten-year period starting on date of acquisition.

Other expenses were $3,988,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $1,188,000 or 42 percent compared to other expense of $2,800,000 for the same period in 2018.  As the First Priority acquisition and organic growth have increased the organization’s geographic profile and employee base, several categories within other expense experienced increases, including insurance costs, charitable donations, stationary and supplies, printing, loan collection costs, and directors’ fees.

No merger expenses were recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2019.  During the first six months of 2018, merger and acquisition expenses totaling $1,916,000 were recorded including investment banking fees, merger-related legal and professional fees, severance costs, and information technology conversion/termination costs incurred for the acquisitions of First Priority and Scottdale.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Loans

Total loans at June 30, 2019 were $1,688,173,000 compared to $1,624,067,000 at December 31, 2018, an increase of $64,106,000 or 4 percent since year-end 2018.  The majority of the growth was commercial and industrial financing, and commercial real estate credits.

Deposits

Total deposits increased $52,375,000 or 3 percent, from $1,726,026,000 at December 31, 2018, to $1,778,401,000 at June 30, 2019.  The increase was attributed to both cash management and commercial deposit business development and from increases in several retail branches.  In response to market rate changes attributable to both FOMC increases and aggressive bank and nonbank competition for liquidity, Mid Penn repriced certain deposits to both retain existing customer relationships, and to attract new customers across the expanded footprint. 

Investments

Mid Penn’s portfolio of held-to-maturity securities decreased 5 percent to $160,182,000 as of June 30, 2019, as compared to $168,370,000 as of December 31, 2018 (held-to-maturity investments are recorded at amortized cost), primarily from principal repayments on mortgage-backed securities.  Mid Penn’s total available-for-sale securities portfolio decreased $28,519,000 or 25 percent, from $111,923,000 at December 31, 2018 to $83,404,000 at June 30, 2019 due to both mortgage-backed securities repayments, and from investment sales related to portfolio strategies in support of both liquidity and interest rate risk management.

Capital

Shareholders’ equity increased by $8,053,000 or 4 percent from $223,209,000 as of December 31, 2018 to $231,262,000 as of June 30, 2019. The increase in shareholders’ equity reflects both (i) the growth in retained earnings through year-to-date net income, net of dividends paid, through the first six months of 2019, and (ii) the year-to-date accumulated other comprehensive income from the after-tax appreciation in the market value of the available-for-sale investment portfolio.  Regulatory capital ratios for both Mid Penn and its banking subsidiary exceeded regulatory “well-capitalized” levels at both June 30, 2019 and 2018.

ASSET QUALITY

Total nonperforming assets were $7,058,000 at June 30, 2019, a significant decrease compared to nonperforming assets of $12,283,000 at December 31, 2018, and $10,055,000 at June 30, 2018. Nonperforming assets were 0.42% of the total of loans plus other real estate assets as of June 30, 2019, compared to 0.76% as of December 31, 2018, and 0.97% as of June 30, 2018.  The decrease was primarily due to the successful workout of a nonaccrual commercial credit relationship totaling $4,302,000 during the first half of 2019.

The allowance for loan and lease losses as a percentage of total loans was 0.52% at both June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, compared to 0.79% at June 30, 2018.  Mid Penn had net loan charge-offs of $216,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to net recoveries of $458,000 during the same period in 2018.  The net charge-off position in 2019 was primarily due to a $205,000 charge-off taken on one relationship during the second quarter of 2019.  The favorable net recovery position during the second quarter of 2018 was driven by the recovery of $777,000 of principal from the successful workout of a commercial real estate relationship that originally had a large partial charge-off in 2009.

Loan loss reserves as a percentage of nonperforming loans were 131% at June 30, 2019, compared to 75% at December 31, 2018, and 90% at June 30, 2018.  The increase in the loan loss reserves as a percentage of nonperforming loans at June 30, 2019 as compared to both the prior year-end and June 30, 2018 was a result of both the year-over-year decrease in nonperforming loans, and the favorable impact of acquired loans from First Priority not having a notable volume of nonperforming assets.

Based upon management’s evaluation of the adequacy of the loan and lease loss allowance, a loan loss provision of $590,000 was recorded for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $125,000 recorded during the same period of 2018.  The increase in the provision amount year-over-year was warranted to support both (i) the adequacy of the ALLL given the organic loan portfolio growth during the first six months of 2019, and (ii) the impact of historical loss factor changes due to charge-offs taken during the first half of 2019.  Management believes, based on information currently available, that the allowance for loan and lease losses of $8,771,000 is adequate as of June 30, 2019, to cover probable and estimated loan losses in the portfolio.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES (Unaudited:)

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). For tangible book value, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is book value.  We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in book value per common share exclusive of changes in intangible assets.  Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing total book value while not increasing tangible book value.   We believe earnings per share excluding the after-tax impact of merger-related expenses provides important supplemental information in evaluating Mid Penn’s operating results because these charges are not incurred as a result of ongoing operations.  Income tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments are calculated using the applicable statutory tax rate for the jurisdictions in which the charges (benefits) are incurred, while taking into consideration any valuation allowances or non-deductible portions of the non-GAAP adjustments. This non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Mid Penn’s results and financial condition as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Management believes that this non-GAAP supplemental information will be helpful in understanding Mid Penn’s ongoing operating results. This supplemental presentation should not be construed as an inference that Mid Penn’s future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to be determined in accordance with GAAP.
