CLEARFIELD, Pa., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CNB Financial Corporation ("CNB") (NASDAQ: CCNE), the parent company of CNB Bank, today announced its earnings for the second quarter and first six months of 2013.  Highlights include the following:

  • Announced the acquisition of FC Banc Corp. and its subsidiary, The Farmers Citizens Bank, headquartered in Bucyrus, Ohio, expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • Excluding the effects of realized gains on the sale of available-for-sale securities and merger costs, pre-tax income of $4.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to pre-tax income of $5.2 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Excluding the effects of realized gains on the sale of available-for-sale securities and merger costs, pre-tax income of $10.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to pre-tax income of $10.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012.
  • Net interest income of $13.8 million for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 4.2% over the second quarter of 2012.
  • Net interest income of $27.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, an increase of 5.1% over the six months ended June 30, 2012.
  • Annualized returns on average assets and equity of 0.80% and 10.04%, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2013. 
  • Loans of $982.9 million at June 30, 2013, an increase of $76.2 million, or 8.4%, compared to June 30, 2012                                                                           .
  • Deposits of $1.55 billion at June 30, 2013, an increase of $91.1 million, or 6.3%, compared to June 30, 2012                                                                          .
  • Total non-performing assets of $20.0 million, or 1.10% of total assets as of June 30, 2013.

Joseph B. Bower, Jr., President and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased with the growth in the loan portfolio through the first six months of 2013, and we are encouraged by the loan prospects currently in our pipeline.  Although net income is slightly behind our projections, the remainder of 2013 looks promising as a result of our continued loan growth and the significant loan loss recovery that occurred in the third quarter."

Net Interest Income and Margin

During the six months ended June 30, 2013, net interest income increased $1.3 million, or 5.1%, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012.  Net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis was 3.35% and 3.38% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to 3.47% for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. 

Although the yield on earnings assets decreased from 4.48% during the six months ended June 30, 2012 to 4.10% during the six months ended June 30, 2013, CNB's average earning assets increased from $1.59 billion to $1.71 billion, or 7.7%.  Due to growth in core deposits, interest-bearing liabilities have increased $77.6 million, or 6.0%, as compared to June 30, 2012.  However, interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2013 decreased by $1.9 million, or 23.5%, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012, as a result of decreases in the cost of core deposits.

CNB's strong and growing deposit base and low cost of funds has offset the decline in yield on earning assets as the company has been prudent in managing its deposit rates, resulting in the increase in net interest income.

Asset Quality

During the six months ended June 30, 2013, CNB recorded a provision for loan losses of $4.0 million, as compared to a provision for loan losses of $2.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

During the second quarter of 2013, a commercial mortgage loan with a balance of $1.1 million that was previously modified in a troubled debt restructuring defaulted under its restructured terms, resulting in an increase in the provision for loan losses during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 of $611 thousand.  In addition, due to a rapid deterioration in the collateral value of an impaired commercial mortgage loan with a carrying value of $2.9 million, CNB recorded an increase in the provision for loan losses of $1.7 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013.  Subsequently, CNB recorded a partial chargeoff on this loan of $892 thousand, resulting in a carrying amount of $2.0 million and a specific reserve of $822 thousand as of June 30, 2013.

Finally, a commercial mortgage loan with a carrying value of $3.3 million defaulted in the second quarter of 2013 and was placed on nonaccrual status.  Based on management's evaluation of the fair value of the associated collateral, no provision for loan loss was required to be recorded.

In July 2013, CNB recorded a loan loss recovery of $1.4 million related to an impaired commercial mortgage loan.  A partial chargeoff had been recorded for this loan in a prior period.  At the recovery date, the carrying amount of the loan was $5.2 million, which was satisfied in full by CNB's participation in the issuance of a loan at market terms to a new borrower who purchased the property securing the loan.

Non-Interest Income

Excluding the effects of realized gains on the sale of available-for-sale securities, non-interest income was $6.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $5.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012.  Net realized gains on available-for-sale securities were $252 and $328 thousand during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $731 thousand and $1.3 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. 

Wealth and asset management fees increased from $813 thousand during the six months ended June 30, 2012 to $1.1 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013 due to increases in assets under management resulting from CNB's strategic focus to grow its Wealth and Asset Management Division.  During the quarter ended June 30, 2013, CNB recorded $815 thousand in income from bank owned life insurance policies, including $576 thousand representing the excess of the face value of certain policies over their cash surrender values resulting from the maturity of the policies.

Non-Interest Expenses

Total non-interest expenses increased $2.6 million, or 14.7%, during the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012.  Salaries and benefits expenses increased $1.2 million, or 12.7%, during the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012, in part due to routine merit increases, an increase in average full-time equivalent employees, and increases in certain employee benefit expenses, such as health insurance premiums, which continue to increase in line with market conditions.  In addition, non-interest expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 include merger related expenses of $828 thousand and $931 thousand, respectively.

* - Tangible common equity, tangible assets and tangible book value per share are non-GAAP financial measures calculated using GAAP amounts.  Tangible common equity is calculated by excluding the balance of goodwill and other intangible assets from the calculation of stockholders' equity.  Tangible assets is calculated by excluding the balance of goodwill and other intangible assets from the calculation of total assets.  Tangible book value per share is calculated by dividing tangible common equity by the number of shares outstanding. CNB believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information to investors that is useful in understanding its financial condition.  Because not all companies use the same calculation of tangible common equity and tangible assets, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures calculated by other companies.  A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures is provided below (dollars in thousands, except per share data).



** - Nonperforming TDR loans are also included in the balance of non-accrual loans in the previous table.
