Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Dunmore, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES


DUNMORE, Pa., Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FDBC) and its banking subsidiary, The Fidelity Deposit and Discount Bank, announced its most recent dividend declaration and unaudited, consolidated financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2021.

Unaudited Financial Information

Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $4.9 million, or $0.85 diluted earnings per share, compared to $5.0 million, or $0.99 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The $0.1 million, or 2%, reduction in net income resulted from a $5.7 million increase in non-interest expenses which more than offset the $4.6 million increase in net interest income and reduction of $1.1 million in the provision for loan losses. Merger-related expenses were $2.2 million for the third quarter of 2021, or $2.0 million higher than merger-related expenses for the third quarter of 2020 due to the timing of the mergers. Diluted earnings per share decreased by $0.14 per share due to the higher non-interest expenses from merger-related expenses incurred from the merger during the third quarter of 2021 which also resulted in an increase in the average shares outstanding.

As previously announced, Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) acquired Landmark Bancorp, Inc. (“Landmark”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Landmark Community Bank effective July 1, 2021. The fair value of assets acquired included $375.5 million in total assets, $308.5 million in deposits and $298.9 million in loans added to the Company’s balance sheet. The reported results include provisional estimates of the accounting for the acquisition of Landmark which are subject to revision in future periods when the application of the accounting guidance for business combinations is finalized. Based on the closing price on June 30, 2021, the merger valuation was $42.9 million.

Excluding merger-related expenses, adjusted net income was $6.6 million for the third quarter of 2021, or $1.16 diluted earnings per share, compared to adjusted net income of $5.1 million, or $1.03 diluted earnings per share, for the third quarter of 2020. For more detail on adjusted net income, which is a non-GAAP measurement, refer to the “Non-GAAP Measures” table within the Selected Financial Ratios and Other Data section.

“We are very pleased with third quarter financial results. The Fidelity Bankers have continued to be focused on the execution of the strategic initiative of building long-term relationships through organic and inorganic growth,” stated Daniel J. Santaniello, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While the year-to-date 2021 financial results have been adversely impacted with the anticipated and non-recurring expenses associated with the acquisition of Landmark Bancorp, the Board of Directors and Management are pleased with the Company’s core operating results. We believe the addition of the Landmark Bankers and the acquired strong balance sheet will continue to build long-term shareholder value.”

Paycheck Protection Program

On July 1, 2021, the Company acquired $20.3 million in Small Business Administration’s (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans as a result of the merger with Landmark.

As of September 30, 2021, the outstanding PPP loan balances totaled $66.8 million. Total PPP loans generated approximately $9.4 million of SBA processing fees, net of origination expenses, of which $7.3 million was earned to date with $1.4 million and $4.2 million recognized during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The $2.1 million remaining balance is expected to continue to be earned over the remaining life of the loans; however, the fees may be recognized earlier upon loan forgiveness by the SBA or if paid off by the borrower.

Consolidated Third Quarter Operating Results Overview

Net interest income was $17.2 million for the third quarter of 2021, a 37% increase over the $12.5 million earned for the third quarter of 2020.   The $4.7 million improvement in net interest income resulted primarily from a $594.3 million increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets which offset the declining yields on these assets supplemented by lower interest expense from a decrease in rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities and payoff of the FHLB advances. The loan portfolio had the biggest impact, producing a $3.4 million increase in interest income from $286.6 million in higher average balances primarily from the addition of Landmark loans to the balance sheet. Higher interest income in the commercial portfolio was the driver with $180.8 million in larger average balances adding $2.7 million, which included $0.4 million from additional SBA fees attributable to PPP loans recognized during the third quarter of 2021 versus the 2020 period. Interest income in the consumer and residential portfolios also contributed to the increase due to the larger average balances in those portfolios. Interest income from the investment portfolio increased $1.1 million as $319.5 million in increased average balances offset declining yields. Interest expense was $0.2 million lower due to decreases in deposit rates. The average balance of interest-bearing deposits increased $467.0 million and the rates paid on these deposits decreased 17 basis points.

The overall cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.26% for the third quarter of 2021, a decrease of 15 basis points from the 0.41% paid for the third quarter of 2020. The cost of funds decreased 11 basis points to 0.19% for the third quarter of 2021 from 0.30% for the third quarter of 2020. The Company’s fully-taxable equivalent (“FTE”) (non-GAAP measurement) net interest spread was 3.14% for the third quarter of 2021, or six basis points higher than the 3.08% recorded for the third quarter of 2020. FTE net interest margin increased by two basis points to 3.22% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 3.20% for the same 2020 period.

The provision for loan losses was $0.4 million for the third quarter of 2021, a $1.1 million decrease compared to $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2020.   The decrease in the provision compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was attributed to the COVID-19-related provisioning that occurred during the third quarter of 2020, which was not similarly warranted for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 due to the improvement in the Company’s economic environment compared to the third quarter of 2020. This amount of provisioning reflected what management deemed necessary to maintain the allowance for loan and lease losses at an adequate level.

Total non-interest income decreased $0.4 million, or 8%, to $4.0 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $4.4 million for the third quarter of 2020. The decrease in non-interest income was attributable to $1.2 million lower gains on loan sales during the third quarter of 2021 compared to the same 2020 period due to managements’ decision to hold mortgages longer to earn interest income during the third quarter of 2021. Partially offsetting this decrease was $0.2 million higher interchange fees, $0.2 million in additional service charges on deposits, $0.1 million growth in trust fiduciary fees and $0.1 million higher earnings on bank-owned life insurance.

Non-interest expenses increased $5.7 million, or 60%, for the third quarter of 2021 to $15.2 million from $9.5 million for the same quarter of 2020. Most of the increase was due to the $2.0 million higher nonrecurring merger-related expenses, primarily consisting of data processing, salaries and employee benefits and professional services expenses in connection with the Landmark acquisition. The majority of the expenses related to the MNB acquisition were recognized during the second quarter of 2020 while most of the expenses related to the Landmark acquisition were recognized during the third quarter of 2021. The Company also recognized $1.6 million in added salaries and employee benefits primarily due to an increase in the number of bankers post-merger and higher performance-based incentive compensation. Advertising and marketing expenses increased $0.5 million due to higher advertising costs and a $0.2 million donation to Fidelity D & D Charitable Foundation. Additionally, premises and equipment expenses were $0.4 million higher and data processing and communications expenses grew $0.2 million due to new property, equipment and systems in place after the Landmark merger.

The provision for income taxes decreased $0.3 million during the third quarter of 2021 due to a larger proportion of tax-free income compared to the third quarter of 2020.

Consolidated Year-To-Date Operating Results Overview

Net interest income was $44.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $31.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The $12.6 million, or 40%, improvement was the result of earnings from a larger average balance of interest-earning assets combined with lower interest expense due to declining rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities. The loan portfolio drove the increased interest income which grew $8.7 million from higher average balances due primarily to loans acquired from the merger with Landmark.   The higher interest income included $4.2 million in SBA fees recognized attributable to PPP loans during the first nine months of 2021, a $2.4 million increase compared to the $1.8 million recognized for the first nine months of 2020. Interest income from investments increased $2.3 million from a $263.9 million larger average balance in the portfolio. On the funding side, interest expense decreased by $1.6 million due to lower rates paid on interest-bearing deposits and a smaller balance of average borrowings. FTE net interest spread was 3.14% for the first nine months of 2021, or two basis points lower than the 3.16% recorded for the first nine months of 2020. Over the same time period, the Company’s FTE net interest margin decreased by eight basis points to 3.23% from 3.31%.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the provision for loan losses was $1.6 million compared to $3.7 million for the same 2020 period. The $2.1 million decrease in the provision was attributed to the COVID-19-related provisioning that occurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 which was not similarly warranted during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 due to the improvement in the Company’s economic environment compared to the year earlier period. This amount of provisioning reflected the changing risk profile within the loan portfolio to what management deemed necessary to maintain the allowance for loan and lease losses at an adequate level.   

Total non-interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $14.1 million, an increase of $4.3 million, or 43%, from $9.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in other income was primarily due to $1.7 million more in gains on loan sales and $1.1 million higher interchange fees. Other increases that contributed to the non-interest income growth were as follows: $0.3 million in loan service fees, $0.3 million in earnings on bank-owned life insurance, $0.3 million in trust fiduciary fees and $0.3 million in service charges on deposits.

Non-interest expenses increased to $37.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $9.4 million, or 33%, from $28.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The largest driver of this increase was a $4.2 million increase in salaries and employee benefit expenses from more salaries for a larger employee base and higher performance-based incentive compensation. In addition, there was $1.1 million more premises and equipment expenses, $0.9 million higher professional services and $0.9 million more in advertising and marketing expenses. Merger-related expenses were $0.7 million higher for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from the Landmark merger compared to expenses incurred for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from the MNB merger.

The provision for income taxes increased $1.2 million during first nine months of 2021 compared to the same 2020 period due to the higher income before taxes.

Consolidated Balance Sheet & Asset Quality Overview

During the first nine months of 2021, the Company’s total assets increased $712 million, or 42%, to $2.4 billion as of September 30, 2021 from $1.7 billion at December 31, 2020. During the same time period, total liabilities increased $673 million, or 44%, from $1.5 billion to $2.2 billion. This growth resulted primarily from the Landmark merger. Deposit growth, excluding deposits acquired from Landmark, of $345 million was used to purchase $342 million in securities and fund organic loan portfolio growth.   The deposit growth includes increases in personal, public and business accounts, some of which are associated with government-provided funding programs in response to the pandemic and this funding may be temporary.

Total non-performing assets were $6.1 million, or 0.25% of total assets, at September 30, 2021, compared to $6.7 million, or 0.39% of total assets, at December 31, 2020. Past due and non-accrual loans to total loans were 0.27% at September 30, 2021 compared to 0.47% at December 31, 2020. Net charge-offs to average total loans decreased to 0.02% at September 30, 2021 compared to 0.08% at September 30, 2020 and 0.08% at December 31, 2020.

Shareholders’ equity increased $38.9 million, or 23%, to $205.6 million at September 30, 2021 from $166.7 million at December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily caused by $35.1 million in common stock issued as a result of the Landmark merger. Net income of $16.2 million was partially offset by $4.7 million in cash dividends paid to shareholders and a $8.8 million, after tax, reduction in net unrealized gains from the investment portfolio stemming from the substantial increase in intermediate to long-term U.S. treasury interest rates. An additional $1.1 million recorded from the issuance of common stock under the Company’s stock plans and stock-based compensation also contributed to the increase in shareholders' equity. The Company remains well capitalized with Tier 1 capital at 7.99% of total average assets as of September 30, 2021.   Tangible book value per share was $32.57 at September 30, 2021 compared to $31.72 at December 31, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures to provide information useful to the reader in understanding its operating performance and trends, and to facilitate comparisons with the performance of other financial institutions. Management uses these measures internally to assess and better understand our underlying business performance and trends related to core business activities. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators other financial institutions used to measure their performance and trends.   Non-GAAP financial measures should be supplemental to GAAP used to prepare the Company’s operating results and should not be read in isolation or relied upon as a substitute for GAAP measures. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP operating measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables at the end of this release.

Management believes merger-related expenses are not standard costs necessary for operations. These charges principally represent professional fees and system conversion and integration costs related to the transaction. These costs are specific to each individual transaction and may vary significantly based on the size and complexity of the transaction. Management also believes the FHLB prepayment fee incurred to payoff FHLB advances is non-recurring and should be excluded from normal operating expenses for proper comparison.

Interest income was adjusted to recognize the income from tax exempt interest-earning assets as if the interest was taxable, fully-taxable equivalent (FTE), in order to calculate certain ratios within this document. This treatment allows a uniform comparison among yields on interest-earning assets. Interest income was FTE adjusted, using the corporate federal tax rate of 21% for 2021 and 2020.
