St. Louis, Mo. October 22, 2018 – Enterprise Financial Services Corp (NASDAQ: EFSC) (the “Company” or "EFSC") reported net income of $22.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, an increase of $0.3 million, and $6.2 million as compared to the linked second quarter and prior year quarter, respectively. Earnings per diluted share were $0.97 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, an increase of 2% and 41%, compared to $0.95 and $0.69 per diluted share for the linked second quarter and prior year period, respectively.

The increase in net income and earnings per diluted share compared to the linked second quarter was primarily due to stable core earnings and a net tax benefit recognized upon finalization of the Company's 2017 tax returns.

Core Results1 

On a core basis1, net income totaled $20.0 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, for each of the quarters ended September 30, 2018 and June 30, 2018. Third quarter 2018 diluted core earnings per share1 grew 30%, or $0.20 per diluted share, from $0.66 for the prior year period which continues to be driven by growth in net interest income mitigated by modest expense growth. The Company's income tax rate for the third quarter of 2018 was 18% compared to 32% in the prior year quarter due to the combination of 2017 federal income tax reform and the Company's tax planning initiatives.

The Company's Board of Directors approved a one cent per common share increase in the Company's quarterly dividend to $0.13 per common share from $0.12 for the fourth quarter of 2018, payable on December 28, 2018 to shareholders of record as of December 14, 2018.

Jim Lally, EFSC’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Third quarter results reflect another strong earnings per share quarter for our Company. Earnings per share for the third quarter were higher than one year ago by 41% and 30% on a total and core1 basis, respectively. Our profitability remains very strong with year to date return on average assets of 1.62%, a 51 basis point increase over the prior year period.”

Lally added, “Capital levels continue to build in line with our expectations, affording us the flexibility to increase the dividend and continue modest share repurchase activity. We are encouraged by the strength of our balance sheet as we look to enhance our performance in the fourth quarter and 2019.”
