2024 First Quarter Financial Highlights

(Comparisons to three months ended March 31, 2023 unless otherwise noted)

  • Net income was $4.20 million, compared to $4.16 million. Results were impacted by the December 2023 sale of the Bank’s subsidiary insurance company, Exchange Underwriters (EU) which drove decreases in noninterest income and noninterest expense, a gain on bank-owned life insurance and a recovery of provision for credit losses.
    • Adjusted net income (Non-GAAP) was $3.2 million compared to $4.0 million.
    • Income before income tax expense was $5.1 million compared to $5.3 million.
    • Adjusted pre-provision net revenue (PPNR) (Non-GAAP) was $4.1 million compared to $5.3 million.
  • Earnings per diluted common share (EPS) increased to $0.82 from $0.81.
    • Adjusted earning per common share - diluted (Non-GAAP) was $0.62, compared to $0.79.
  • Return on average assets (annualized) was 1.17%, compared to 1.21%.
    • Adjusted return on average assets (annualized) (Non-GAAP) was 0.89%, compared to 1.18%.
  • Return on average equity (annualized) was 12.03%, compared to 14.69%.
    • Adjusted return on average equity (annualized) (Non-GAAP) was 9.16%, compared to 14.24%.
  • Net interest margin (“NIM”) declined to 3.36% from 3.51%.
  • Net interest and dividend income was $11.59 million, compared to $11.58 million.
  • Noninterest income decreased to $1.9 million, compared to $2.8 million. Significant changes in noninterest income included a $1.9 million decrease in insurance commissions due to the sale of EU, partially offset by increases in gains on bank-owned life insurance and gains on the disposal of premises and equipment of $613,000 and $263,000, respectively.
  • Noninterest expense decreased to $8.4 million, compared to $9.0 million, due to decreases in compensation and benefits, data processing, intangible amortization and other noninterest expenses, partially offset by increases in contracted services, advertising, occupancy and equipment expenses.

(Amounts at March 31, 2024; comparisons to December 31, 2023, unless otherwise noted)

  • Total assets increased to $1.47 billion from $1.46 billion.
  • Total loans decreased $14.1 million, or 1.3%, to $1.10 billion compared to $1.11 billion, and included decreases in consumer loans and commercial and industrial loans of $11.1 million and $8.0 million, respectively, partially offset by increases in commercial real estate loans, other loans and construction loans of $3.3 million, $1.4 million and $1.2 million, respectively. The consumer loan portfolio is primarily comprised of indirect automobile loans and decreases as a result of the discontinuation of that product as of June 30, 2023. Excluding the $11.3 million decrease in indirect automobile loans, total loans decreased $2.5 million, or 0.2%.
  • Nonperforming loans to total loans was 0.20% at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.
  • Total deposits were $1.26 billion, a decrease of $4.7 million, compared to $1.27 billion.
  • Book value per share was $27.53, compared to $27.32 as of December 31, 2023.
  • Tangible book value per share (Non-GAAP) was $25.52, compared to $25.23 as of December 31, 2023. The change was due to an increase in stockholders’ equity primarily related to current period net income of $4.2 million, partially offset by a $1.3 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss and the payment of $1.3 million in dividends since December 31, 2023.

Management Commentary

President and CEO John H. Montgomery commented, “While our prior period results reflected the ongoing trend of net interest margin pressure, our previously announced balance sheet strategies and recent loan production are contributing to stabilization and improvement in this area. While loan production remained consistent, we did experience an overall decrease of $13.9 million or 1.2% in our loan balances. Our first quarter loan balances were impacted by runoff in the formerly exited indirect lending portfolio of $11.1 million and a $20.0 million payoff of a commercial line of credit. However, I am pleased with our loan production for the quarter and our overall loan growth continued to show positive signs with several categories increasing during the quarter. During this time of deposit disruption, our deposits remained relatively stable, albeit continuing to shift from non-interest and low interest-bearing accounts to higher-cost time deposits. Notably, our asset quality remains robust, with nonperforming loans remaining at $2.2 million or 0.20% of total loans.

During the quarter, we successfully implemented a new website and domain name (www.cb.bank) as part of our ongoing investment in technology and infrastructure to better serve our clients. Additionally, we invested in the build-out of our Treasury team and onboarded a new Chief Human Resource Officer to continue our success with attracting and retaining top talent. Our operational team developed new indexed money market deposit products aimed at offering a fair, but market adjustable rate.

Finally, we were named by Newsweek as one of the top 250 Regional Banks in America. This recognition is the direct result of us staying true to our cornerstone by delivering an exceptional client experience everyday.

As we look ahead, we remain committed to our long-term plan, investing in our franchise, and delivering an exceptional client experience that benefits all our stakeholders."

Dividend Declaration

The Company’s Board of Directors declared a $0.25 quarterly cash dividend per outstanding share of common stock, payable on or about May 31, 2024, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 15, 2024.

2024 First Quarter Financial Review

Net Interest and Dividend Income

Net interest and dividend income increased $8,000, or 0.1%, to $11.59 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $11.58 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

  • NIM (GAAP) decreased to 3.36% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to 3.51% for the three months ended March 31, 2023. Fully tax equivalent (FTE) NIM (Non-GAAP) decreased 15 basis points (“bps”) to 3.37% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to 3.52% for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
  • Interest and dividend income increased $3.7 million, or 26.3%, to $18.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $14.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
    • Interest income on loans increased $2.5 million, or 19.9%, to $14.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $12.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The average yield on loans increased 67 bps to 5.50% compared to 4.83% resulting in a $1.8 million increase in interest income on loans. The average balance of loans increased $47.3 million to $1.09 billion from $1.04 billion, generating $694,000 of additional interest income on loans. The increase in loan yield has been driven by a reduction in lower yielding consumer loans due to the discontinuation of the indirect automobile loan product with the redeployment of those funds into higher yielding commercial loan products.
    • Interest income on taxable investment securities increased $1.3 million, or 138.9%, to $2.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $964,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 driven by a 210 bp increase in average yield coupled with a $22.6 million increase in average balances. The increase in the average yield was the result of the Bank implementing a balance sheet repositioning strategy of its portfolio of available-for-sale securities during the fourth quarter of 2023. The Bank sold $69.3 million in market value of its lower yielding U.S. government agency, mortgage-backed and municipal securities with an average yield of 1.89% and purchased $69.3 million of higher yielding mortgage-backed and collateralized mortgage obligation securities with an average yield of 5.49%.
    • Interest income on interest-earning deposits at other banks decreased $72,000, to $733,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $805,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 driven by a $14.3 million decrease in average balances, partially offset by a 58 bp increase in the average yield.
  • Interest expense increased $3.7 million, or 140.3%, to $6.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $2.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
    • Interest expense on deposits increased $3.5 million, or 139.3%, to $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. Rising market interest rates led to the repricing of interest-bearing demand and money market deposits and a shift in deposits from noninterest-bearing to interest-bearing demand and time deposits which resulted in a 132 bp, or 116.0%, increase in the average cost of interest-bearing deposits compared to the three months ended March 31, 2023. This accounted for a $3.2 million increase in interest expense. Additionally, interest-bearing deposit balances increased $86.1 million, or 9.6%, to $978.3 million as of March 31, 2024 compared to $892.2 million as of March 31, 2023, accounting for a $298,000 increase in interest expense.
    • Interest expense on borrowed funds increased $247,000, or 157.3%, to $404,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $157,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The average balance of borrowed funds increased $18.7 million due to $20.0 million of FHLB long-term advances added during the second quarter of 2023. The increase in the average balance accounted for a $232,000 increase in interest expense.

Provision for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was a net recovery of $37,000. The provision for credit losses - loans was a recovery of $143,000 and was primarily due to a decrease in loan balances while the provision for credit losses - unfunded commitments was $106,000 and was due to an increase in qualitative factors. This compared to an $80,000 provision for credit losses recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income decreased $894,000, or 31.8%, to $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. This decrease resulted primarily from a $1.9 million decrease in insurance commissions as no income was recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2024 due to the December 2023 sale of EU, compared to a full quarter of income recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2023. This decrease was partially offset by net increases in gains on bank-owned life insurance and gains on the disposal of premises and equipment of $613,000 and $263,000, respectively. The gain on bank owned life insurance was $915,000 resulting from one death claim during the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $302,000 resulting from two death claims during the three months ended March 31, 2023. The gain on the disposal of premises and equipment was $274,000 resulting from the sale of one branch office building during the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $11,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense decreased $600,000, or 6.6%, to $8.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $9.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. Salaries and benefits decreased $503,000, or 9.9%, to $4.6 million primarily due to no expense related to EU recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2024 due to the December 2023 sale, compared to $864,000 of expense recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2023, partially offset by merit increases and revenue producing staff additions. Data processing expense decreased $165,000 due to additional expenses realized during the three months ended March 31, 2023 related to a 2022 data processing conversion. Other noninterest expense decreased $164,000 and intangible amortization decreased $104,000 primarily due to EU expenses of $108,000 and $47,000, respectively, realized during the three months ended March 31, 2023. Partially offsetting these decreases, contracted services, advertising, occupancy and equipment expenses increased $134,000, $50,000, $48,000 and $46,000, respectively.

Statement of Financial Condition Review

Assets

Total assets increased $16.0 million, or 1.1%, to $1.47 billion at March 31, 2024, compared to $1.46 billion at December 31, 2023.

  • Cash and due from banks increased $5.5 million, or 8.0%, to $73.7 million at March 31, 2024, compared to $68.2 million at December 31, 2023.
  • Securities increased $25.2 million, or 12.2%, to $232.3 million at March 31, 2024, compared to $207.1 million at December 31, 2023. The securities balance was primarily impacted by the purchase of $29.8 million of collateralized loan obligation securities, partially offset by $3.1 million of principal repayments on amortizing securities.

Loans and Credit Quality

  • Total loans decreased $14.1 million, or 1.3%, to $1.10 billion at March 31, 2024 compared to $1.11 billion at December 31, 2023. This was driven by decreases in consumer loans and commercial and industrial loans of $11.1 million and $8.0 million, respectively, partially offset by increases in commercial real estate loans, other loans and construction loans of $3.3 million, $1.4 million and $1.2 million, respectively. The decrease in consumer loans resulted from a reduction in indirect automobile loan production due to rising market interest rates and the discontinuation of this product offering as of June 30, 2023. This portfolio is expected to continue to decline as resources are allocated and production efforts are focused on more profitable commercial products. The decrease in commercial and industrial loans was primarily due to the prepayment of a $20.0 million line of credit and a $5.0 million syndicated national credit.
  • The allowance for credit losses (ACL) was $9.6 million at March 31, 2024 and $9.7 million at December 31, 2023. As a result, the ACL to total loans was 0.87% at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023. During the current year, the Company recorded a net recovery of credit losses of $37,000.
  • Net recoveries for the three months ended March 31, 2024 were $18,000. Net recoveries for the three months ended March 31, 2023 were $756,000, or 0.29% of average loans on an annualized basis primarily due to recoveries totaling $750,000 related to a prior year $2.7 million charged-off commercial and industrial loan.
  • Nonperforming loans, which includes nonaccrual loans and accruing loans past due 90 days or more, were $2.2 million at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023. Nonperforming loans to total loans ratio was 0.20% at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.

Total liabilities increased $14.2 million, or 1.1%, to $1.33 billion at March 31, 2024 compared to $1.32 billion at December 31, 2023.

Deposits

  • Total deposits decreased $4.7 million to $1.262 billion as of March 31, 2024 compared to $1.267 billion at December 31, 2023. Non interest-bearing demand deposits decreased $2.6 million, interest-bearing demand deposits decreased $39.9 million and savings deposits decreased $4.5 million, while money market deposits increased $7.3 million and time deposits increased $35.0 million. Deposit changes were primarily the result of cyclical fluctuations in municipal deposits and the current interest rate environment causing a shift in deposit products to higher priced time deposits. Additionally, the Bank added $13.0 million of brokered certificates of deposit during the period. Brokered certificates of deposit totaled $42.0 million as of March 31, 2024 compared to $29.0 million at December 31, 2023, all mature within three months and were utilized to fund the purchase of floating rate collateralized loan obligation securities. At March 31, 2024, FDIC insured deposits totaled approximately 63.1% of total deposits while an additional 15.0% of deposits were collateralized with investment securities.

Accrued Interest Payable and Other Liabilities

  • Accrued interest payable and other liabilities increased $18.9 million, or 131.1%, to $33.3 million at March 31, 2024, compared to $14.4 million at December 31, 2023 primarily due to the purchase of $10.6 million of syndicated loans and $10.1 million of securities which were unsettled at the end of the period.

Stockholders’ Equity

Stockholders’ equity increased $1.8 million, or 1.3%, to $141.6 million at March 31, 2024, compared to $139.8 million at December 31, 2023. The key factor positively impacting stockholders’ equity was $4.2 million of net income for the current period, partially offset by a $1.3 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss and the payment of $1.3 million in dividends since December 31, 2023.

Book value per share

Book value per common share was $27.53 at March 31, 2024 compared to $27.32 at December 31, 2023, an increase of $0.21.

Tangible book value per common share (Non-GAAP) was $25.52 at March 31, 2024, compared to $25.23 at December 31, 2023, an increase of $0.29.

Explanation of Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we use, and this Press Release contains or references, certain Non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these Non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information in understanding our underlying results of operations or financial position and our business and performance trends as they facilitate comparisons with the performance of other companies in the financial services industry. Non-GAAP adjusted items impacting the Company's financial performance are identified to assist investors in providing a complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company’s business and in analyzing the Company’s operating results on the same basis as that applied by management. Although we believe that these Non-GAAP financial measures enhance the understanding of our business and performance, they should not be considered an alternative to GAAP or considered to be more important than financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable with similar Non-GAAP measures which may be presented by other companies. Where Non-GAAP financial measures are used, the comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as the reconciliation to the comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found herein.
