S&T Bancorp, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2014 Results and Declares an Increased Dividend

INDIANA, Pa., April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- S&T Bancorp, Inc. (S&T) (NASDAQ: STBA) has announced its first quarter 2014 earnings.  Net income increased 18% to $14.0 million with diluted earnings per share of $0.47 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 net income of $11.9 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.40.  Net income increased 14% compared to the first quarter of 2013 net income of $12.3 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.41

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Loan growth was strong with a $61.7 million, or 7.0% annualized, increase in portfolio loans compared to December 31, 2013.
  • Market expansion continues with the opening of a loan production office in Central Ohio and the hiring of two community bankers in State College, Pennsylvania.     
  • Asset quality was excellent with a net recovery for the first quarter of 2014 and a decrease in nonperforming assets.
  • Expenses remain well controlled due to various efficiency initiatives implemented in 2013.
  • S&T's Board of Directors approved a 6.3% increase in the quarterly cash dividend to $0.17 per share, the second increase in the quarterly dividend over the past year. 

"Our financial performance this quarter is a continuation of the focused execution of our strategic initiatives by our team members.  Solid organic loan growth, expense discipline and improvement in our asset quality metrics will continue to be a focus in 2014," said Todd Brice, president and chief executive officer of S&T. "In addition, we are excited to announce our expansion into two key markets, Central Ohio and State College, Pennsylvania, where we have recruited bankers with long tenures and deep ties to these markets."

Net Interest Income
Net interest income was relatively unchanged at $35.6 million compared to $35.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Net interest income was impacted by two fewer days in the first quarter compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, however, this decrease was offset by strong loan growth and prepayment fees. Compared to the same period last year, loan growth has driven net interest income higher by 5.7%.  Net interest margin (FTE) has been stable at 3.51% in the first quarter of 2014, 3.52% in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 3.49% in the first quarter of 2013.

Asset Quality
Asset quality remains excellent. Total nonperforming loans were 0.58% of total loans at March 31, 2014 compared to 0.63% of total loans at December 31, 2013.  During the first quarter of 2014, there was a net recovery of $0.1 million compared to a net charge-off of $3.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The provision for loan losses decreased to $0.3 million in the first quarter of 2014 compared to $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The allowance for loan losses was $46.6 million, or 1.28% of total loans, compared to $46.3 million, or 1.30% of total loans, at December 31, 2013.

Noninterest Income and Expense
Noninterest income increased $0.1 million to $11.4 million compared to $11.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 due to higher wealth management and insurance fees offset by a decrease in mortgage banking.  Wealth management fees increased $0.4 million, or 15.7%, from the prior quarter due to brokerage activity, fee schedule changes and higher assets under management. Insurance fees increased $0.6 million due to $0.4 million of annual profit sharing that we received from our insurance carriers, normal seasonal fluctuations with policy renewals and higher revenue related to our credit insurance products.  Mortgage banking income decreased by $0.3 million compared to the prior quarter due to seasonal declines in volume.

Expenses remain well controlled as a result of various efficiency initiatives implemented during 2013.  Adjusting for $1.1 million of one-time expenses in the first quarter of 2013, noninterest expense decreased by over 5% in the first quarter of 2014.  Noninterest expense decreased $0.5 million to $28.9 million compared to $29.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Professional services and legal fees decreased $0.4 million and marketing expense decreased $0.2 million compared to the prior quarter due to the timing of services and marketing campaigns.

Financial Condition
Total assets increased $173.8 million to $4.7 billion at March 31, 2014 compared to $4.5 billion at December 31, 2013. Loan growth was strong representing our seventh consecutive quarter of growth with an increase of $61.7 million, or 7.0% annualized, in total portfolio loans. Commercial loans grew $66.4 million, or 10.4% annualized, during the quarter, primarily due to growth in the commercial and industrial and construction portfolios.  Total deposits increased $196.0 million compared to December 31, 2013 with growth coming primarily in core deposits.  S&T's risk-based capital ratios increased this quarter due to retained earnings growth outpacing loan growth.  All capital ratios remain significantly above the well-capitalized thresholds of federal bank regulatory agencies.

Dividend
The Board of Directors of S&T declared a $0.17 per share cash dividend at its regular meeting held April 28, 2014, representing a 6.3% increase over the prior quarter cash dividend of $0.16 per share and a 13.3% increase over the quarterly dividend a year ago.  The dividend is payable May 29, 2014 to shareholders of record on May 15, 2014. 

"The increase in the quarterly dividend is a reflection of the Board's confidence in management's ability to continue to produce solid earnings in the future while maintaining a strong capital position," said Charles Urtin, chairman of the S&T Bancorp, Inc. Board of Directors.  "Our focus remains on providing a competitive return to the shareholders of S&T Bancorp."
