ENB Financial Corp Reports Fourth Quarter 2017 Results

 

(January 18, 2018) -- Ephrata, PA – ENB Financial Corp (OTCBB: ENBP), the bank holding company for Ephrata National Bank, reports net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 of $611,000, a $1,309,000, or 68.2% decrease, from the $1,920,000 earned during the fourth quarter of 2016. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2017, was $6,344,000, a $1,209,000, or 16.0% decrease, from the $7,553,000 earned for the same period in 2016. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $0.21 compared to $0.67 for the same period in 2016. Year-to-date earnings per share were $2.23 in 2017 compared to $2.65 in 2016.

 

The decrease in the Corporation’s 2017 earnings was caused primarily by a deferred tax asset devaluation of $1.1 million as a result of a lower corporate tax rate. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowered the corporate tax rate from 34% to 21%, which will lower the Corporation’s provision for Federal income taxes in future years. However, the Corporation was required to write down the value of its net deferred tax assets by $1.1 million as of December 31, 2017. Without this write-down, annual net income would have been $7,476,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017, with $2.63 earnings per share, while fourth quarter earnings would have been $1,743,000 with $0.61 earnings per share (non-GAAP).

 

The Corporation’s net interest income (NII) increased by $693,000, or 9.9%, and $4,891,000, or 19.3%, for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same periods in 2016. The increase in NII primarily resulted from an increase in interest on securities and dividend income of $175,000, or 9.1%, and $2,798,000, or 49.3%, for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2017, caused primarily by $1,681,000 of non-recurring amortization on U.S. sub-agency bonds recorded for the year ended 2016, with no similar amount in 2017. The Corporation’s NII also benefited from a $448,000, or 7.7%, and $1,728,000, or 7.7% increase in interest and fees on loans for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2017, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2016.

 

The Corporation recorded $490,000 of provision expense in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to $125,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016, and provision expense of $940,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to $325,000 for the same period in 2016. The increase in provision expense was largely driven by a charge-off for one customer of $275,000 in October 2017. The allowance as a percentage of total loans was 1.38% as of December 31, 2017, compared to 1.32% as of December 31, 2016.

The gains from the sale of securities were $258,000 and $675,000 for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to $240,000 and $2,370,000 for the same periods in 2016, representing an increase of $18,000, or 7.5%, and a decrease of $1,695,000, or 71.5%, respectively. Interest rates were higher during 2017 compared to 2016, resulting in fewer opportunities to pursue gains in 2017.

 

The gain on the sale of mortgages increased by $10,000, or 2.5%, and $203,000, or 13.4%, for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to the prior year’s periods. Both mortgage production and margins realized on sold mortgages were higher in 2017 compared to 2016.

 

Total operating expenses increased $739,000, or 10.2%, and $3,677,000, or 13.5%, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same periods in 2016. Salary and benefit expenses, which make up the largest portion of operating expenses, increased $431,000, or 9.5%, and $2,571,000, or 15.3%, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same periods in 2016. These costs are elevated for 2017 due to the hiring of staff to support new branch offices as well as commercial sales positions and back office support. In addition, benefit costs increased primarily as a result of higher health insurance premiums.

 

The Corporation’s annualized return on average assets (ROA) and return on average stockholders’ equity (ROE) for the fourth quarter of 2017 were 0.24% and 2.42%, respectively, compared to 0.78% and 7.81% for the fourth quarter of 2016. For the year ended December 31, 2017, the Corporation’s annualized ROA was 0.63%, compared to 0.80% in 2016, while the ROE was 6.46%, compared to 7.74% for 2016. Excluding the one-time net deferred tax asset write-down, the Corporation’s ROA and ROE would have been 0.68% and 6.90% for the fourth quarter of 2017, and 0.75% and 7.61% for the year ended December 31, 2017 (non-GAAP).

 

As of December 31, 2017, the Corporation had total assets of $1.03 billion, up 5.0%; total stockholders’ equity of $99.8 million, up 5.1%; total deposits of $866.5 million, up 6.0%; and total loans of $597.6 million, up 4.5%, from the balances as of December 31, 2016.
