Summit State Bank Reports 76% Increase in Net Income to $3,898,000 for Second Quarter 2021 and Declaration of Dividend

7/27, 3:00 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

SANTA ROSA, Calif., July 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Summit State Bank (Nasdaq: SSBI) today reported record net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 of $3,898,000 and diluted earnings per share of $0.64. This compares to net income of $2,218,000 and diluted earnings per share of $0.37 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Additionally, 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 July 26, 2021 to be paid on August 20, 2021 to shareholders of record on August 13, 2021.

Net Income and Results of Operations

Net income increased $1,680,000 or 76% the second quarter of 2021 compared to second quarter of 2020. Net interest income increased to $8,976,000 in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $7,174,000 in the second quarter of 2020.

“The Bank continues to experience strong core earnings growth in the first half of 2021,” noted Brian Reed, President and CEO. “The full opening of local businesses in June was a welcomed change. Although the future impacts to the economy is unknown and many economic indicators provide a mixed review on the speed of the recovery, we are pleased to see many businesses beginning to feel the positive impact of this transition.”

The net interest margin for the second quarter of 2021 was 4.13%, annualized return on average assets was 1.76% and annualized return on average equity was 20.18%. The second quarter of 2020 had a net interest margin was 3.71%, annualized return on average assets was 1.12% and annualized return on average equity was 12.71%. The Bank is experiencing growth in its margin due to a reduction in cost of funds; this reduction was caused by repricing high cost maturing deposits and an increase in low-cost, non-maturing deposit volume.

Interest income increased to $10,082,000 in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $8,816,000 in the second quarter of 2020, this was an increase of 14%. The increase in interest income is primarily attributable to $1,201,000 from increases in loan balances and $87,000 from increases in income, net of fees, due to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans. The fees collected from all SBA PPP loans are amortized over the life of the loan and upon forgiveness the remaining fee income, net of cost, is taken into interest income. In the second quarter of 2021, the Bank recorded $468,000 in PPP fees net of costs; the Bank has $1,094,000 in remaining PPP fees net of costs left to amortize.

“The Bank funded $134,000,000 of PPP loans for both Round 1 and Round 2 to over 860 loans averaging about $156,000 per loan,” said Reed. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide our customers and communities with these loans. We are now focused on actively working with our customers to request forgiveness from the SBA for both rounds of PPP loans. Currently the Bank has approximately $13,000,000 in SBA Round 1 loans and $35,000,000 in SBA Round 2 loans remaining to be forgiven.”

Loans increased 8% to $765,461,000 at June 30, 2021 compared to $709,689,000 at June 30, 2020. Excluding PPP loans, loans increased 17% to $717,295,000 at June 30, 2021 compared to $614,155,000 at June 30, 2020. Total deposits increased 8% to $763,953,000 at June 30, 2021 compared to $709,473,000 at June 30, 2020.

Non-interest income increased in the second quarter of 2021 to $1,597,000 compared to $693,000 in the second quarter of 2020. The Bank recognized $1,160,000 in gains on sales of SBA guaranteed loan balances in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $320,000 in gains on sales of SBA guaranteed loans balances in the second quarter of 2020.

Operating expenses increased $821,000 or 19% in the second quarter of 2021 to $5,037,000 compared to $4,216,000 in the second quarter of 2020. The increase in expenses is primarily due to deferred loan costs for PPP loans boarded Q2 2020 totaling approximately $590,000; these costs are amortized over two-years and all remaining balances are expensed when a PPP loan is paid in full, or the forgiveness payment is received by the SBA. Other factors causing the increase in expense is a $113,000 increase in commissions directly related to the Bank’s loan portfolio growth and a $70,000 increase in salary expenses net of deferred loan costs. The Bank is achieving economies of scale as it grows, resulting in an efficiency ratio improvement which went from 53.59% for the second quarter of 2020 to 47.86% for the second quarter of 2021.

Nonperforming assets were $464,000 or 0.05% of total assets at June 30, 2021 compared to $407,000 or 0.05% on June 30, 2020. The nonperforming assets on June 30, 2021 consist of 2 loans that are secured by real property and another loan that has a guarantee.

The Bank had no provision expense in the second quarter of 2021. The allowance for credit losses to total loans including SBA-guaranteed PPP loans was 1.50% on June 30, 2021 and 1.11% on June 30, 2020. Excluding $48,166,000 of PPP loan balances, the non-GAAP financial measurement ratio of allowance for credit losses increases to 1.60% and 1.28% on June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.  

As of June 30, 2021, 5 loans totaling $3,169,000 or 0.4% of the loan portfolio excluding PPP loans were in principal and interest deferral. The loan to value ranges from 11% to 68%, and 93% of the deferred loans are real estate secured.

Reed further explains “we are fortunate to maintain improved financial performance on our core operations during an unforgettable global crisis. With the recent change to fully opening businesses Sonoma County, we continue to support our customers as they transition into the post-pandemic recovery process.”

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures:        
This news release contains a non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measure in addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP for the allowance for credit losses to total loans excluding PPP loans. The Bank has presented this non-GAAP financial measure in the earnings release because it believes that it provides useful information to assess the Bank’s allowance for credit loss reserves. This non-GAAP financial measure has inherent limitations, is not required to be uniformly applied, and is not audited. Further, this non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the allowance for credit losses to total loans determined in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other financial institutions. Reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measurement is presented below.
