Peoples Bancorp Inc. ("Peoples") (NASDAQ: PEBO) today announced results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.  Net income totaled $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, representing earnings per diluted common share of $0.36.  In comparison, earnings per diluted common share were $0.33 for the fourth quarter of 2011 and $0.45 for the third quarter of 2012.  For the year, earnings per diluted common share were $1.92 in 2012 versus $1.07 in 2011.   

"We are pleased with the significant improvement in both earnings and overall shareholder value in 2012," said Chuck Sulerzyski, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Most notably, revenue growth outpaced the increase in operating expenses, reversing recent negative trends.  We also made good progress towards restoring our asset quality metrics to pre-2008 levels, which led to sizable reserve releases during 2012.  Modest loan growth occurred as increased production was augmented by our first banking acquisition since 2004.  Our common shareholders saw the value of their investment increase, as Peoples' stock price grew 38% during the year and the quarterly dividend was increased to $0.12 per share."

Sulerzyski continued, "More exciting than our financial performance in 2012 is the strategic investments we are making for future growth.  These include the expansion of our consumer lending activities, completion of acquisitions in each of our business lines, the refresh of our image with a new brand and the repayment of our high-cost trust preferred securities.  Further, each employee is committed to working together and building success for our customers, shareholders and the communities we serve."

As previously announced, Peoples repaid the entire $23 million outstanding principal amount of its junior subordinated debentures and related trust preferred securities on December 19, 2012.  This transaction resulted in Peoples incurring a pre-tax loss of $1.0 million for the redemption premium and unamortized issuance costs.  Peoples funded the repayment with a term note from an unaffiliated financial institution at a significantly lower interest rate. As a result, Peoples will realize an annual interest expense savings of $1.1 million beginning in 2013.

Net interest income grew to $14.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, 6% higher than the linked quarter.  This improvement was largely attributable to a full quarter's impact of the Sistersville acquisition completed late in the third quarter of 2012.  Net interest margin improved to 3.42%, compared to 3.30% for the linked quarter.  Fourth quarter net interest income and margin also benefited from $330,000 of additional interest income for prepayment fees and interest recovered on nonaccrual loans.  This one-time income added 7 basis points to the fourth quarter net interest margin.  Compared to last year, growth in earning assets produced slightly higher net interest income for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012.  However, the sustained low interest rate environment caused asset yields to decline more than Peoples could reduce its funding costs.  As a result, Peoples experienced slight net interest margin compression from the prior year periods. 

"Net interest income and margin exceeded our expectations for the quarter, due in part to the one-time income realized in the fourth quarter," said Edward Sloane, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer.  "We also experienced slower prepayments within our investment portfolio as long-term interest rates remained relatively stable throughout the quarter.  The corresponding reduction in premium amortization eased the pressure on our asset yields.  As we begin 2013, net interest income and margin will benefit from the repayment of our high-cost trust preferred securities in mid-December.  However, our ability to sustain the improvement will depend upon meaningful loan growth.  The balance sheet also remains positioned to benefit from any steepening of the yield curve."

During 2012, Peoples experienced sustained growth in non-interest income, with a 6% year-over-year increase for both the fourth quarter and entire year.  On a linked quarter basis, non-interest income was up 3%.  A key driver of these increases was stronger mortgage banking income.  Historically low mortgage interest rates throughout most of 2012 resulted in higher refinancing activity.  Growth in managed assets occurred during 2012 due to acquisitions and a general recovery within the U.S. financial markets.  As a result, fourth quarter trust and investment income was 13% higher than the prior year.  Electronic banking income remained strong throughout the year due to a steady increase in the volume of debit card transactions.  Insurance income, although down on a linked quarter basis due to the timing of policy renewals, was 7% higher in the fourth quarter compared to the prior year, reflecting the rising trend in commercial insurance premiums within the industry and new business generated by producers.

"We returned to positive operating leverage in 2012 due to the strength of our fee-based businesses and disciplined expense management," said Sulerzyski.  "In addition to significantly higher mortgage-banking activity, double-digit increases occurred within our trust and investment income and e-banking revenues.  On the expense side, most of the increase was the result of higher sales and incentive compensation, plus costs associated with acquisition activities and our new brand.  We also ramped up our charitable giving in 2012, both directly to local organizations and through increased contributions to our private foundation."

Non-interest expense totaled $17.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, versus $15.7 million for the linked quarter and $16.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.  In the fourth quarter, Peoples incurred $982,000 of additional expenses related to pension settlement charges, ongoing rebranding efforts, a one-time stock award to certain employees, and acquisition related costs.  Total non-interest expense also was higher in the fourth quarter due to a full quarter's impact of the Sistersville acquisition.  Fourth quarter salary and employee benefit costs, while 7% lower than the prior year, increased 8% from the linked quarter, due almost entirely to the pension settlement charges and one-time stock-based compensation expense.  For the year, total non-interest expense was $63.5 million in 2012, up 3% from the prior year.  Most of this increase was the result of additional sales and incentive compensation due to stronger than expected revenue growth.  Other significant contributing factors to the increase were $641,000 of acquisition related expenses and $421,000 of rebranding costs.        

At December 31, 2012, gross portfolio loan balances were $985.2 million, comparable to the prior quarter-end and up 5% from $938.5 million at year-end 2011.  Loan growth occurred in 2012 due in part to commercial lending opportunities within Peoples' market area, coupled with increased consumer lending.  Loan balances also benefited from the Sistersville acquisition during the third quarter.  As a result, average loan balances were higher for both the fourth quarter of 2012 and full year compared to prior periods.

"Modest loan growth occurred in 2012 as increased production was largely offset by ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of our loan portfolio," said Sloane.  "New loan originations were over 50% higher than the prior year as our bankers were very active throughout the year.  We also made progress towards our strategic goal of creating a loan portfolio with better risk dynamics and greater diversity.  During 2012, non-mortgage commercial and consumer loans grew 28% and 16%, respectively, while commercial mortgage balances fell 8%.  At the same time, we significantly reduced the level of problem loans which improved overall asset quality."

Total nonperforming assets were $14.7 million, or 1.48% of total loans plus OREO, at December 31, 2012, versus $16.7 million and 1.66% at September 30, 2012.  This 12% reduction occurred primarily as a result of paydowns on nonaccrual commercial loans.  In 2012, Peoples reduced its nonperforming assets by $17.6 million, or 54%. Total criticized loans, which are those classified as watch, substandard or doubtful, also have decreased $56.7 million, or 37%, since year-end 2011. This reduction occurred primarily as a result of $38.3 million in principal paydowns.  Peoples' asset quality also benefited from the improvement in the financial condition of the borrowers, which allowed some loans to be upgraded during 2012.  

The sustained improvement in asset quality during 2012 has resulted in a significant decrease in Peoples' allowance for loan losses.  At year-end 2012, the allowance for loan losses was 1.81% of total loans, compared to 1.88% and 2.53% at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  Even with this reduction, the allowance for loan losses was 128.9% of nonperforming loans, up from 120.0% at the prior quarter-end and 79.0% at year-end 2011.  Peoples continues to closely evaluate credit quality, including the continued elevated exposure to commercial real estate and certain sectors.  The evaluation of the allowance for loan losses recognizes these remaining risks, as well as emerging risks and the uneven economic environment across Peoples' market area. 

During the fourth quarter, retail deposit balances grew $39.4 million, or 3%, as non-interest-bearing deposit balances increased $28.7 million and interest-bearing balances were up $10.7 million.  Non-interest-bearing deposit growth occurred primarily as a result of increases in commercial account balances.  Peoples continued to experience a mix shift within its interest-bearing deposits, with growth in low-cost savings and checking balances more than offsetting a decline in retail certificates of deposit.  For the year, retail deposit balances increased $149.7 million, or 12%, as growth in non-interest-bearing deposits was nearly matched by increased interest-bearing balances.  This deposit growth allowed Peoples to reduce borrowed funds by $40.0 million, or 18%, during 2012.

At December 31, 2012, Peoples' Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 14.06%, compared to 15.85% at the prior quarter-end, with 6% required to be considered well capitalized.  The lower ratio at year-end was largely the result of Peoples repaying all of its outstanding junior subordinated debentures and redeeming the related trust preferred securities during the fourth quarter.  This transaction had minimal impact on Peoples' tangible common equity.  At December 31, 2012, the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets was 8.28%, and tangible book value per share was $14.52, versus 8.37% and $14.28, respectively, at September 30, 2012.   

"Overall, we consider 2012 to be a very good year considering the strong results within our core businesses and significant improvement in shareholder value," summarized Sulerzyski.  "In 2013, we plan to build upon the recent earnings momentum and improvement in asset quality.  Key priorities will include balanced loan growth, preserving our revenue diversity, generating positive operating leverage and returning asset quality to pre-crisis levels.  We will be successful due to disciplined execution of our strategies and commitment to serving the needs of our customers and local communities."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains financial information and performance measures determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP").  Management uses these "non-GAAP" measures in its analysis of Peoples' performance and the efficiency of its operations. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations and enhance comparability of results with prior periods and peers. These disclosures should not be viewed as substitutes for financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Below is a listing of the types of non-GAAP measures used in this news release:

  • Tangible equity and tangible common equity measures are non-GAAP since they exclude the impact of intangible assets acquired through acquisitions on both total stockholders' equity and total assets and the related amortization from earnings.  
  • Pre-provision net revenue is defined as net interest income plus non-interest income minus non-interest expense.  This measure is non-GAAP since it excludes provision for loan losses and all gains and/or losses included in earnings.

A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this news release under the caption of "Non-GAAP Financial Measures".
