Middleburg Financial Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter 2015 Results

28 Jan, 2016, 16:05 ET from Middleburg Financial Corporation

MIDDLEBURG, Va., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Middleburg Financial Corporation (the "Company") (Nasdaq: MBRG), today announced net income of $781,000, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 and $7.83 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, for the full year 2015.

The net income in the fourth quarter was impacted by the previously announced impairment charge of $3.0 million recognized  during the quarter.  The impairment related to a loan participation totaling $4.0 million secured by receivables and inventory.  Excluding this charge for the quarter, there would have been no provision for loan losses, and salary and employee benefits expense and tax expense would have been $4.27 million and $769,000, respectively, resulting in net income of $2.22 million or $0.31 per diluted share.  Excluding this charge for the full year 2015, there would have been a recovery of provision for loan losses of $407,000, and salary and employee benefits expense and tax expense would have been $18.93 million and $3.28 million, respectively, resulting in net income of $9.27 million or $1.29 per diluted share for the full year 2015.  This would have resulted in an annualized return on average assets ("ROA") of 0.69% and annualized return on average equity ("ROE") of 6.98% for the quarter.  For the full year 2015, ROA would have been 0.74% and ROE of 7.40%.  These effects on net income and related ROA and ROE ratios are non-GAAP measures of profitability.

Gary R. Shook, President and CEO commented:  "We were pleased with the positive momentum in our overall performance metrics for 2015.  Robust loan and deposit growth and a strong loan pipeline combined with good expense control have built the foundation for improvements in 2016.  While we were disappointed with the $3.0 million impairment charge on a loan participation, we were gratified that the net income for the full year 2015 increased compared to the previous year.    Furthermore, the performance in 2015 benefited from record net income of nearly $1.0 million from our wealth management subsidiary, Middleburg Investment Group.

As we turn our attention to 2016 we will continue our focus on improving net interest margin and maintaining the asset sensitivity of the balance sheet.  The balance sheet is positioned well for an increase in rates.

We have been pleased with the success of the stock repurchase program that was launched in the fourth quarter of 2015.  As of December 31, 2015,  the Company had repurchased 77,500 shares of common stock.  It is our strong belief that judicious open market purchases of stock coupled with a strong focus on dividends will further enhance shareholder value as does our commitment to delivering robust financial performance."

TOTAL REVENUE Total revenue, computed as net interest income plus non-interest income, was $12.06 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, higher by 0.42% compared to the previous quarter and an increase of 3.42% compared to the same period in 2014.  Total revenue for the full year 2015 was $48.46 million while revenue for all of 2014 was $52.87 million.  Total revenue for 2014 included revenue contributions from Southern Trust Mortgage.  The Company sold its 62.3% ownership interest in Southern Trust Mortgage in May of 2014.

The following factors contributed to the changes in net interest margin during the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to the previous quarter:

  • Yields on earning assets decreased by 11 bp compared to the previous quarter, primarily due to a 19 bp decrease in yields on loans.
  • Yields on investment securities decreased by 3 bp compared to the previous quarter as a result of lower yields on securities added to the investment portfolio.
  • Yields on loans decreased by 19 bp compared to the previous quarter as a result of payoff activity, lower yields on loans added to the balance sheet and reversal of accrued interest. The accrued interest that was reversed represented 9 bp of loan yield.
  • Cost of funds was 37 bp, unchanged compared to the previous quarter.

The following table analyzes changes in net interest income comparing the fourth quarter of 2015 to the previous quarter and to the quarter ended December 31, 2014.

Comparing the fourth quarter of 2015 to the previous quarter, the table shows the increase in interest income for investments was largely driven by growth in the securities portfolio.  We continue to add securities that are less sensitive to prepayments while retaining a balance between fixed and floating rate investments.  The decrease in interest income from loans was mostly due to rate as the strong growth in loan balances was offset by lower loan rates.  The changes in interest income in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to the same quarter in 2014 reflected similar factors, namely increased interest income from investments driven by higher securities balances and lower interest income from loans stemming from lower loan rates that more than offset growth in loan balances. Competition for good credits continues to pressure loan rates.

Non-Interest Income Non-interest income increased by 10.15% compared to the previous quarter and increased by 10.34% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2014.

  • Total revenue generated by our wealth management group, Middleburg Investment Group ("MIG") was $1.16 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, relatively unchanged compared to the previous quarter and higher by 1.58% compared to the same quarter in 2014.  Fee income is based primarily upon the market value of assets under administration which were $1.93 billion at December 31, 2015 and $1.87 billion at December 31, 2014.
  • Other operating income was $527,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, an increase of 98.12% compared to the previous quarter and higher by 102.69% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2014.  Most of the increase in other operating income during the periods was due to prepayment penalties from certain government guaranteed securities.

NON-INTEREST EXPENSE Non-interest expense decreased by 9.70% compared to the previous quarter and by 11.13% compared to the the same period in 2014.  Principal categories of non-interest expense that changed were the following: 

  • Salaries and employee benefit expenses decreased by 21.99% when compared to the previous quarter and decreased by 26.55% when compared to the same period in 2014. The decline in salary and benefit expenses was due to lower incentive accruals as we aligned compensation to the achievement of income and growth targets and exercised strong expense control throughout 2015.
  • Costs related to other real estate owned (OREO) decreased when compared to the prior quarter and also when compared to the same period in 2014. In the previous quarter, we recorded a valuation adjustment of $157,500 for one property resulting from an updated appraisal. Additional reasons for the improvement in OREO expense include an overall decline in maintenance costs for the properties.
  • Computer expense increased to $801,000 for the current quarter compared to $524,000 and $485,000 for the quarters ended September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. The increase in computer operations expense was primarily related to costs associated with conversion to a new on-line banking platform in the fourth quarter of 2015.

ASSET QUALITY Total nonperforming assets increased in 2015 primarily due to the restructuring of two loans that are part of a single relationship totaling $9.93 million.  The loans were restructured in the second quarter of 2015 and one of them was downgraded that quarter, which resulted in an increase in accruing Troubled Debt Restructurings ("TDR's").  Accruing TDR's rose to $12.06 million at December 31, 2015 compared to $4.30 million at December 31, 2014.  While this loan was restructured and downgraded in 2015, the Company had properly classified the loan as impaired at December 31, 2014, and as a result no additional reserves were recorded in 2015 for this loan.  This resulted in total nonperforming assets increasing to $25.51 million at December 31, 2015 compared to $19.45 million at December 31, 2014.

  • Total past due loans declined by 31.33% to $3.33 million as of December 31, 2015 from $4.85 million as of December 31, 2014.
  • Nonaccrual loans declined by 11.67% to $8.78 million as of December 31, 2015 from $9.94 million as of December 31, 2014.
  • Loans that were risk rated either as special mention, substandard, doubtful, or loss declined by 15.20% to $46.67 million as of December 31, 2015 from $55.03 million as of December 31, 2014.
  • OREO balances declined by 17.43% when compared to year end 2014. Changes in OREO include the sale of properties totaling $1.04 million, new foreclosures of $1.20 million and transfers of $855,000 to the Company's fixed assets to be used as part of the Bank's operations.

In an ongoing effort to improve the credit quality of the balance sheet, the Company also sold $1.02 million of nonperforming loans in the second quarter of 2015.

The Company reduced its allowance for loan and lease losses ("ALLL") to $11.05 million or 1.37% of total loans at December 31, 2015 compared to $11.79 million or 1.56% of total loans at December 31, 2014.  The provision for loan losses increased to $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to a recovery of provision of $432,000 in the previous quarter and a provision of $450,000 for the same period in 2014.  The provision is based on the Company's methodology for determining the allowance for loan and lease losses.  

CONSOLIDATED ASSETS Total consolidated assets at December 31, 2015 were $1.29 billion, higher by 5.89% since December 31, 2014.  Changes in major asset categories were as follows:

  • Cash balances and deposits with other banks decreased by $15.79 million compared to December 31, 2014.
  • The Company deployed some of its excess liquidity into growing its securities portfolio which increased by $29.02 million compared to December 31, 2014.
  • Loans held-for-investment grew to $805.68 million as of December 31, 2015 compared to $754.85 million on December 31, 2014, an increase of $50.84 million from December 31, 2014 and a growth rate of 6.73% for 2015.
  • Other assets increased $4.87 million compared to December 31, 2014, primarily due to a $3.0 million investment in low income housing tax credit funds.

CONSOLIDATED LIABILITIES Total consolidated liabilities at December 31, 2015 were $1.17 billion, an increase of 6.40% compared to December 31, 2014.  Deposit growth continues to be strong with total deposits increasing by $51.72 million from December 31, 2014 to $1.04 billion as of December 31, 2015. Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances increased by $30.00 million from December 31, 2014 to $85.00 million at December 31, 2015. Most of the growth in FHLB advances occurred in the fourth quarter of 2015.

SHAREHOLDERS' EQUITY AND CAPITAL Shareholders' equity at December 31, 2015 was $123.55 million, compared to $122.03 million at December 31, 2014.  Retained earnings at December 31, 2015 were $60.39 million compared to $55.85 million at December 31, 2014.  On September 15, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $10 million of the Company's common stock, or approximately 8% of the Company's outstanding shares. The repurchase program was effective immediately and runs through December 31, 2017. This program replaces the previous repurchase program adopted in 1999, pursuant to which the Company had 24,084 shares remaining eligible for repurchase.  As of  December 31, 2015, the Company had repurchased 77,500 shares, totaling $1.42 million, for an average price of $18.37.  The book value of the Company's common stock at December 31, 2015 was $17.44 per share versus $17.11 per share at December 31, 2014.

The Company's capital ratios remain well above regulatory minimum capital ratios as of December 31, 2015:

  • Tier 1 Leverage ratio was 9.59%, 5.59% over the regulatory minimum of 4.00% to be well capitalized.
  • Common Equity Tier 1 Ratio was 15.61%, 8.61% over the regulatory minimum of 7.00% to be well capitalized.
  • Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital Ratio was 16.27%, 7.77% over the regulatory minimum of 8.50% to be well capitalized.
  • Total Risk Based Capital Ratio was 17.52%, 7.02% over the regulatory minimum of 10.50% to be well capitalized .

(1)

The net interest margin is calculated by dividing tax equivalent net interest income by total average earning assets.  Tax equivalent net interest income is calculated by grossing up interest income for the amounts that are non taxable (i.e., municipal income) then subtracting interest expense. The tax rate utilized is 34%. The Company's net interest margin is a common measure used by the financial service industry to determine how profitably earning assets are funded.  Because the Company earns non taxable interest income due to the mix in its investment and loan portfolios, net interest income for the ratio is calculated on a tax equivalent basis as described above.  This calculation excludes net securities gains and losses.

(2)

The diluted earnings multiple is calculated by dividing the period's closing market price per share by the annualized diluted earnings per share for the period.  The diluted earnings multiple is a measure of how much an investor may be willing to pay for $1.00 of the Company's earnings.

(3)

The book value multiple (or price to book ratio) is calculated by dividing the period's closing market price per share by the period's book value per share.  The book value multiple is a measure used to compare the Company's market value per share to its book value per share.

(4)

Tangible book value is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.  It is computed by subtracting identified intangible assets and goodwill from total Middleburg Financial Corporation shareholders' equity and then dividing the result by the number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding at the end of the accounting period.

(5)

The efficiency ratio is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. It is calculated by dividing non-interest expense (adjusted for amortization of intangibles, other real estate expenses, and non-recurring one-time charges) by the sum of tax equivalent net interest income and non-interest income excluding gains and losses on the investment portfolio. The tax rate utilized in calculating tax equivalent amounts is 34%. The Company calculates and reviews this ratio as a means of evaluating operational efficiency.
