First Busey Announces 2019 First Quarter Earnings

Champaign, IL – (Nasdaq: BUSE)

Message from our President & CEO


The Banc Ed Corp. merger leads to positive advances in the first quarter of 2019 from
the comparable quarter of the prior year:



  Net income of $25.5 million, as compared to $21.9 million


  Net interest income of $68.4 million, as compared to $59.8 million


  Portfolio loans of $6.52 billion, as compared to $5.53 billion


  Tangible book value per common share of $14.53, as compared to $13.08

First Busey Corporation’s (“First Busey” or the “Company”) net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $25.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted common share, as compared to $25.3 million, or $0.51 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $21.9 million, or $0.45 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2018.  Adjusted net income1 for the first quarter of 2019 was $26.6 million, or $0.50 per diluted common share, as compared to $26.0 million, or $0.53 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $24.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2018.

The Company views certain non-operating items, including acquisition-related and restructuring charges, as adjustments to net income reported under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  Non-operating pretax adjustments for the first quarter of 2019 were $1.2 million of expenses related to acquisitions and $0.3 million of expenses related to restructuring costs. The reconciliation of non-GAAP measures (including adjusted net income, adjusted return on average assets, adjusted net interest margin, adjusted efficiency ratio, tangible book value, tangible book value per share and return on average tangible common equity), which the Company believes facilitates the assessment of its financial results and peer comparability, is included in tabular form at the end of this release.

For the first quarter of 2019, annualized return on average assets and annualized return on average tangible common equity were 1.17% and 13.64%, respectively.  Based on adjusted net income1, return on average assets was 1.22% and return on average tangible common equity was 14.25% for the first quarter of 2019.

Additional first quarter 2019 highlights include:


  Non-interest income increased to $25.9 million as compared to $22.9 million for the fourth quarter 2018.

●  Busey Bank organic commercial loan growth of $60.4 million in first quarter of 2019.

●  Total deposits at March 31, 2019 grew to $7.76 billion driven by a linked-quarter increase of $326.6 million in non-interest bearing deposits.

●  Continued disciplined credit management resulted in non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans of 0.56% at March 31, 2019 as compared to 0.66% at December 31, 2018.
