81 Days ago

SANTA ROSA, Calif., April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Summit State Bank (Nasdaq: SSBI) today reported net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 of $1,425,000 and diluted earnings per share of $0.23.  A quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share was declared for common shareholders.

Dividend

The Board of Directors declared a $0.12 per share quarterly dividend on April 29, 2019 to be paid on May 24, 2019 to shareholders of record on May 17, 2019.

Net Income and Results of Operations

For the quarter ended March 31, 2019, Summit State Bank (“Bank”) had net income of $1,425,000 and diluted earnings per share of $0.23 compared to $1,740,000 in net income and $0.29 diluted earnings per share for the same quarter in 2018.

Net income decreased $315,000 or 18% the first quarter of 2019 compared to first quarter of 2018. Net interest income increased to $5,547,000 in the first quarter of 2019 compared to $5,314,000 in the first quarter of 2018.

“When comparing our net income to first quarter 2018, the difference is a result of the Bank implementing its strategy to increase loans and total assets,” said Jim Brush, President and CEO. “We expanded our team of experienced staff which increased our salary-related expenses. We are also retaining more SBA loans instead of selling them given the decreasing premiums in the secondary market.”

Net loans and deposits also increased when comparing the first quarter of 2019 to first quarter of 2018; loans were $509,989,000 in 2019 compared to $457,256,000 in 2018 and deposits were $555,255,000 in 2019 compared to $503,858,000 in 2018. The net interest margin decreased from 3.80% for the first quarter of 2018 to 3.65% for the first quarter of 2019.

Annualized return on average assets for the first quarter of 2019 was 0.92% and annualized return on average equity was 9.3%. The Bank’s efficiency ratio was 69.7% and the net interest margin was 3.65% during the first quarter of 2019. The first quarter of 2018 had an annualized return on average assets of 1.22%, annualized return on average equity of 11.8%, efficiency ratio of 58.4% and net interest margin of 3.80%.

Non-interest income decreased in the first quarter of 2019 to $493,000 compared to $763,000 in the first quarter of 2018. The Bank recognized $167,000 in gains on sales of SBA guaranteed loan balances in 2019 and $292,000 in the first quarter of 2018. Rental income also decreased in the first quarter of 2019 to $90,000 compared to $147,000 in the first quarter of 2018; this decrease was due to less office space available to rent out caused by the increase number of staff personnel occupying the space.

There was a $670,000 or 19% increase in operating expenses between the first quarter of 2019 as compared to the first quarter of 2018. The increased expenses are primarily due to the increase in employees and related personnel and occupancy costs.

Total assets at March 31, 2019 were $626,290,000 compared to $576,983,000 at March 31, 2018. Total assets increased 9% or $49,307,000 between March 31, 2019 and 2018. Net loans increased 12% or $52,733,000 and total deposits increased 10% or $51,397,000 between March 31, 2019 and 2018.

“Our increasing balance sheet is a testament to our strategic plan becoming a reality,” according to Brush. “I am pleased to report net income ended the quarter within 1% of the plan and the balance sheet continues increasing in alignment with our strategic plan.”

“When we developed our 2019 plan, we anticipated continued pressure on our net interest margin. As we continue to manage our balance sheet growth, we are focused on making business decisions that shift assets from lower yielding investment securities to higher yielding loans while also managing deposit costs,” said Mr. Brush.

Nonperforming assets were $736,000 or 0.12% of total assets at March 31, 2019 compared to $2,679,000 or 0.46% at March 31, 2018. The nonperforming assets at March 31, 2019, consist of five loans which are predominantly secured by real property. The Bank had provision expense of $100,000 in the first quarter of 2019. The allowance for loan losses to loans was 1.19% at March 31, 2019 and was 1.21% at March 31, 2018.
