JASPER, Ind., July 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- German American Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:GABC) today reported that it had achieved record financial performance during the first half of 2014. Net income in the first half of 2014 reached a record $13.0 million, or $0.98 per share, which was an increase of approximately 5%, on a reported net income basis, above the 2013 year-to-date net income of $12.3 million, or $0.97 per share. The Company's second quarter 2014 earnings were $6.7 million, or $0.51 per share, as compared to $6.3 million, or $0.48 per share, reported in the first quarter of 2014, and $6.5 million, or $0.52 per share, booked in the second quarter of 2013.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, German American also booked nearly a $50 million increase in total loans outstanding, which equates to approximately 14% annualized growth. Relative to the Company's position as of June 30, 2013, the Company's end-of-period loans outstanding increased by approximately $168 million, which represented a similar 14% growth rate over the one year period, inclusive of the loans acquired in connection with the United Commerce transaction.

Driven in part by the higher level of loans outstanding, the Company's net interest income increased by $3.6 million on a year-to-date comparison and by $1.6 million on a second quarter 2014 versus second quarter 2013 comparison, which equates to approximately a 10% increase for both comparison periods. Other positive contributors to German American's 2014 year-to-date financial performance included an enhanced level of insurance revenues, trust and investment fees, and deposit service charges.

Commenting on the Company's current year performance, Mark A. Schroeder, Chairman & CEO of German American, stated, "A major driver of our performance, during both the current quarter and first half of this year, has been our ability to generate double-digit annualized loan growth not only during the quarter, but also over the course of the past 12 months. As we've seen the economy continue to recover during the past year, we've also experienced an enhanced confidence by both our consumer and business clients. This improved level of confidence in the overall economic climate has resulted in a stronger level of loan demand, as evidenced by these significant increases in our total loans outstanding."

The comparison of German American's current year operating results with that of the prior year were affected by the inclusion of the United Commerce Bancorp operation which was acquired by the Company effective October 1, 2013, a new financial center in Columbus, Indiana which opened on December 20, 2013, and the roll-out of the Company's new digital banking systems in the first half of 2014.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared its regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.16 per share which will be payable on August 20, 2014 to shareholders of record as of August 10, 2014.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, net interest income totaled $18,321,000 representing an increase of $125,000, or 1%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2014 net interest income of $18,196,000 and an increase of $1,609,000, or 10%, compared with the quarter ended June 30, 2013 net interest income of $16,712,000. The tax equivalent net interest margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was 3.74% compared to 3.78% in the second quarter of 2014 and 3.64% in the second quarter of 2013. The increase in net interest income in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 was primarily attributable to growth in the level of average loans outstanding. The increase in net interest income during the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013 was largely attributable to growth of the loan portfolio and to a reduced cost of funds. 

The decline in the net interest margin in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 was largely attributable to continued downward pressure on the Company's loan portfolio yield. The improvement of the net interest margin in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013 was primarily attributable to an increased level of average loans outstanding, the improvement in the yield on the Company's securities portfolio and to the continued decline in the Company's cost of funds.

Accretion of loan discounts on acquired loans contributed approximately 6 basis points on an annualized basis to the net interest margin in the second quarter of 2014, 5 basis points in first quarter of 2014 and 6 basis points in the second quarter of 2013.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the provision for loan loss totaled $200,000 representing a decline of $150,000, or 43%, from the provision of $350,000 during the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of $400,000 from the negative provision of $200,000 during the second quarter of 2013. During the second quarter of 2014, the provision for loan loss represented approximately 6 basis points of average loans on an annualized basis. During the second quarter of 2014, the Company had net charge-offs of $134,000 representing approximately 4 basis points of average loans on an annualized basis.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, non-interest income totaled $5,502,000, a decline of $779,000 or 12%, compared with the quarter ended March 31, 2014, and a decline of $608,000, or 10%, compared with the second quarter of 2013.

Insurance revenues declined $1,074,000, or 42%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared with the first quarter of 2014 and increased $103,000, or 7%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. The decline during the second quarter of 2014 compared with first quarter of 2014 was related to contingency revenue. There was no contingency revenue received during the second quarter of 2014 while contingency revenue during the first quarter of 2014 totaled $1,049,000. Typically the receipt of contingency revenue occurs during the first quarter of the calendar year as did occur in 2014 and is reflective of claims and loss experience with insurance carriers that the Company represents through its property and casualty insurance agency.

Other operating income increased $200,000, or 51%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 and decreased $271,000, or 31%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. The variance in both comparative periods was largely related to fees and fair value adjustments associated with interest rate swap transactions with loan customers.

Net gains on sales of loans totaled $386,000 during the quarter ended June 30, 2014, a decline of  $90,000, or 19%, compared to the first quarter of 2014 and a decline of $423,000, or 52%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Loan sales totaled $21.8 million during the second quarter of 2014, compared with $21.9 million during the first quarter of 2014 and $54.2 million during the second quarter of 2013.

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company realized a net gain on the sale of securities of $244,000 compared with a net gain of $228,000 during the first quarter of 2014 and $467,000 during the second quarter of 2013.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, non-interest expense totaled $14,139,000, a decline of $951,000, or 6%, compared with the quarter ended March 31, 2014, and an increase of $878,000, or 7%, compared with the second quarter of 2013.

Salaries and benefits decreased $538,000, or 6%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 and increased $259,000, or 3%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. The decline in salaries and benefits during the second quarter of 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 was primarily due to lower costs related to the Company's partially self-insured health insurance plan and lower costs attributable to benefits and payroll taxes that are directly attributable to the levels of cash compensation paid. The increase in salaries and benefits during the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013 was largely attributable to an increased number of full-time equivalent employees and to the acquisition of United Commerce Bancorp which occurred in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Occupancy, furniture and equipment expense decreased $127,000, or 7%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 and increased $133,000, or 9%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. The decrease compared with the first quarter of 2014 was largely attributable to lower costs of utilities and repairs and maintenance items including snow removal. The increase compared with the second quarter of 2013 was largely attributable to additional office facilities including the acquisition of United Commerce Bancorp and the opening of a full-service banking location in Columbus, Indiana.

Data processing fees declined $63,000, or 6%, during the second quarter of 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 and increased $275,000, or 41%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. The data processing fees during the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013 were elevated related to costs associated with the implementation of new commercial and retail digital banking platforms late in fourth quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014.

Professional fees declined $139,000, or 20%, during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 and increased $28,000 compared with the second quarter of 2013. The decrease during the second quarter of 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 was largely related to professional fees associated with the acquisition of United Commerce Bancorp.
