ACNB CORPORATION REPORTS

2020 FIRST QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS

 

2020 First Quarter Highlights

 

·As publicly announced on January 13, 2020, ACNB Corporation acquired Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Frederick County Bank, headquartered in Frederick, MD, effective January 11, 2020, with systems conversions completed in March 2020. This transaction added $444,241,000 in assets, $374,058,000 in deposits, and $329,917,000 in loans to ACNB Corporation’s balance sheet.

 

·
Net loss for the three months and quarter ended March 31, 2020, totaled $1,223,000, with basic loss per share of $0.14, primarily due to one-time merger-related expenses of $5,965,000 and a higher provision for loan losses of $4,000,000 as a result of a large unanticipated charge-off of one loan relationship and the potential economic impact of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Without the nonrecurring expenses related to the acquisition of Frederick County Bancorp, Inc., as well as the corresponding tax impact at the marginal tax rate, net income (non-GAAP) would have been $3,350,000, or $0.40 basic earnings per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

 

·Net interest income for the three months and quarter ended March 31, 2020, totaled $17,455,000.

 

·Total loans outstanding were $1,606,039,000 at March 31, 2020.

 

·Total deposits were $1,811,357,000 at March 31, 2020.

announced the cash dividend declared for the second quarter of 2020 is consistent at $0.25 per share, payable on June 15, 2020, to shareholders of record on June 1, 2020.

 

·ACNB Corporation responded to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic with a focused and responsive plan to meet the needs of the Corporation’s customers and communities, as well as to maintain a high level of operational performance while protecting valued staff members.

 

GETTYSBURG, PA, April 29, 2020 --- ACNB Corporation (NASDAQ: ACNB), financial holding company for ACNB Bank and Russell Insurance Group, Inc., announced financial results for the three months and quarter ended March 31, 2020. These financial results include the nonrecurring expense associated with the acquisition of Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. (FCBI) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Frederick County Bank, headquartered in Frederick, MD, and the enhancement of loan loss reserves due to a large unanticipated charge-off of one loan relationship and the potential economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the Corporation reported a net loss of $1,223,000 or $0.14 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to net income of $5,864,000 or $0.83 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

 

Excluding the nonrecurring acquisition and integration expenses incurred in conjunction with the acquisition of FCBI and Frederick County Bank in the amount of $5,965,000, as well as the corresponding tax impact at the marginal tax rate, net income (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, would have been $3,350,000 or $0.40 earnings per share.

 

“ACNB Corporation saw an exciting start to 2020. Our strategic plan of combining sustained organic growth with inorganic growth came to fruition with our acquisition of Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Frederick County Bank. While first quarter earnings were adversely impacted with the expected and nonrecurring costs associated with this acquisition, we are pleased with our underlying core operating results. It is our belief that the addition of the community banking network of five locations in Frederick, Maryland, branded as FCB Bank, a division of ACNB Bank, will further enhance long-term shareholder value due to both geographic and customer network expansion and future

financial benefits as a result of our combined more efficient institution,” said James P. Helt, President & CEO of ACNB Corporation.

 

“The first quarter of 2020 also saw a dramatic impact on our company due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on how we conduct our daily business. While we cannot accurately project the full impact of this health crisis, we have taken prudent steps to address the needs and safety of our customers, employees and shareholders. Several initiatives were implemented in response to the COVID-19 crisis to assist customers, employees and our communities during this unprecedented time of challenges and hardship for many. To help protect our company from potential future financial impacts, we have also initiated numerous risk mitigation efforts such as loan modification programs, customer outreach efforts, participation in the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program, and fortification of the allowance for loan losses.”

 

Mr. Helt continued, “As 2020 continues to unfold, we remain positive that this current crisis will pass. ACNB Corporation’s banking subsidiary, ACNB Bank, remains a well-capitalized financial institution. We are solidly positioned to leverage our new acquisition for future growth and to further enhance long-term ACNB Corporation shareholder value.”

 

Revenues

 

Total revenues, defined as net interest income plus noninterest income, for the first quarter of 2020 were $21,621,000, or a 16.2% increase over total revenues of $18,605,000 for the first quarter of 2019.

 

Loans

 

Total loans outstanding were $1,606,039,000 at March 31, 2020. Loans outstanding increased by $333,438,000, or 26.2%, since December 31, 2019, and increased by $304,704,000, or 23.4%, from March 31, 2019 to March 31, 2020, including $329,917,000 of loans acquired through FCBI. The loan growth is attributable to the FCBI acquisition, net of selling most new residential mortgages and early payoffs of other loans. Year over year, organic loan growth is primarily in the commercial loan portfolio

with a focus on asset quality and disciplined underwriting standards despite the intense competition in the Corporation’s market areas. As a result of a large unanticipated charge-off of one loan relationship and increased risk from COVID-19, combined with normal and anticipated credit losses in the portfolio, the provision for loan losses for the first quarter of 2020 was $4,000,000.

 

Deposits

 

Total deposits were $1,811,357,000 at March 31, 2020. Deposits increased by $399,097,000, or 28.3%, since December 31, 2019, and $444,299,000, or 32.5%, from March 31, 2019 to March 31, 2020, including $374,058,000 of deposits acquired through FCBI. Year over year, organic deposit growth is a function of pricing and the level of deposits held by existing and new customers, especially in the segment of municipal depositors.

 

Net Interest Income and Margin

 

Net interest income rose by $2,790,000 to $17,455,000 for the first quarter of 2020, which is an increase of 19.0% compared to the first quarter of 2019. The net interest margin for the first quarter of 2020 was 3.67%, compared to 3.93% for the same period of 2019. Net interest income was positively impacted by the growth in interest income exceeding the increase in interest expense during these comparable periods.

 

Noninterest Income

 

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2020 was $4,166,000, an increase of $226,000, or 5.7%, compared to the first quarter of 2019. The increase includes both revenue from fiduciary, investment management and brokerage activities and commissions from insurance sales, which grew 12.8% and 9.1%, respectively, from the first quarter of 2019 to the first quarter of 2020.

 

Noninterest Expense

 

Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2020 was $19,457,000, an increase of $8,196,000, or 72.8%, from the same period in 2019. Nonrecurring acquisition and integration expenses related to the acquisition of FCBI were $5,965,000 for the first quarter of 2020. Salaries and employee benefits expense

increased by $1,536,000 from the first quarter of 2019 to the first quarter of 2020, which is primarily attributable to higher staffing levels from the FCBI acquisition and additional staff hired to support revenue generation across all business lines.

 

Dividends

 

Quarterly cash dividends paid to ACNB Corporation shareholders in the first quarter of 2020 totaled $2,167,000, or $0.25 per share. In the first quarter of 2019, ACNB Corporation paid $0.23 per share for total dividends paid to shareholders in the amount of $1,621,000. The increase in total dividends paid from first quarter 2019 to first quarter 2020 is also a result of the addition of new shareholders from the FCBI acquisition in January 2020.

 

COVID-19 Pandemic

 

To reinforce the commitment to community, ACNB Corporation is launching an initiative---ACNB Helping Hands---to help feed persons in need in its four regions through its banking subsidiary, ACNB Bank, and its insurance agency subsidiary, Russell Insurance Group, Inc. This program, to be funded by both the Bank and employees, is designed to provide thousands of meals prepared by restaurants that are ACNB Bank customers and then distributed through local community organizations across the southcentral Pennsylvania and northern Maryland footprint.

 

As previously reported, ACNB Corporation implemented numerous initiatives to support and protect employees and customers at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most significantly, the following steps were taken at ACNB Bank to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to assist customers in the local communities served in Pennsylvania and Maryland:

 

·All community banking offices were limited to drive-up services for in-person banking transactions, with lobby access available via appointment in the case of critical needs for services such as safe deposit box access.

·All ACNB Bank fees for customers using an ATM, regardless of location, are waived until further notice.

 

·Early withdrawal penalties on CDs open more than seven days are waived until further notice.

 

·To assist customers in managing deposit accounts, fees for account transfers conducted via the Customer Contact Center are waived and there is potential fee relief for overdraft services until further notice.

 

·For personal loan customers experiencing financial hardship, processes are in place to assist in loan payment deferrals and other accommodations.

 

·For business loan customers, processes are in place to assist in loan payment deferrals and other accommodations.

 

·For business customers, there is potential fee relief for the Bank’s deposit and lending solutions, as well as potential maintenance fee waiver for Remote Deposit Capture services until further notice.

 

·Operations are being conducted in compliance with current guidelines regarding social distancing, face coverings, sanitation, and personal hygiene.

 

·Staff members are working remotely when able to do so to complete their primary responsibilities.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

ACNB Corporation uses non-GAAP financial measures to provide information useful to investors in understanding our operating performance and trends, and to facilitate comparisons with the performance of our peers. Management uses these measures internally to assess and better understand our underlying business performance and trends related to core business activities. The non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators we use may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators other financial institutions use to measure their performance and trends.

 

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In the event of such a disclosure or release, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Regulation G requires: (i) the presentation of the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and (ii) a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP financial measure presented and the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. 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 organic costs attendant to operations and facilities. These charges principally represent expenses to satisfy contractual obligations of the acquired entity, without any useful benefit to us, to convert and consolidate the entity’s records, systems and data onto our platforms, and professional fees 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.
