William B. (“Brad”) Kessel, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Independent Bank Corporation, commented: “We are pleased to report solid fourth quarter and full year 2015 results, with diluted earnings per share up 47.1% and 11.7%, over the respective year ago periods.  As we assess all of 2015, we are proud of our many significant achievements, including: increased loan and deposit balances; growth in revenues and earnings; a reduction in non-performing assets and the implementation of several new technology driven initiatives to better serve our customers.  As we move into 2016, we recognize the importance of continuing our improved performance.  We continue to evaluate and implement initiatives to grow loans and core deposits as well as to improve our operating efficiency.  We believe our balance sheet is well positioned to benefit from a higher interest rate environment in 2016.  In addition, we are announcing the continuation of our share repurchase program.”

Operating Results

The Company’s net interest income totaled $19.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of $1.3 million, or 7.2% from the year-ago period, and an increase of $0.5 million, or 2.7%, from the third quarter of 2015. The Company’s tax equivalent net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets (the “net interest margin”) was 3.56% during the fourth quarter of 2015, which is unchanged from the year-ago quarter and was 3.58% in the third quarter of 2015. The increase in net interest income is principally due an increase in average interest-earning assets.  Average interest-earning assets were $2.18 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $2.03 billion in the year-ago quarter and $2.11 billion in the third quarter of 2015.

For the full-year of 2015, net interest income totaled $75.0 million, an increase of $1.7 million, or 2.4% from 2014.  This increase in net interest income is primarily due to an increase in average interest-earning assets that was partially offset by a decline in the net interest margin. Average interest-earning assets totaled $2.11 billion in 2015 compared to $2.01 billion in 2014.  The Company’s net interest margin for all of 2015 decreased to 3.58% compared to 3.67% in 2014. The decrease in the net interest margin is primarily due to the prolonged low interest rate environment that has resulted in declining average yields on the Company’s loan portfolio.

Service charges on deposits totaled $3.1 million and $12.4 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter and full year of 2015, compared to $3.3 million and $13.4 million, respectively, in the year ago periods.  The decline in service charges is due principally to a decrease in non-sufficient funds (“NSF”) occurrences and related NSF fees.

Interchange income totaled $1.9 million and $8.5 million for the fourth quarter and full year of 2015, respectively, compared to $2.2 million and $8.2 million, respectively, in the year ago periods.  The decline in interchange income on a comparative quarterly basis is principally due to a decrease in volume incentives earned under the Company’s debit card brand agreement that was executed in January 2014. The full-year increase in interchange income also reflects the impact of the aforementioned debit card brand agreement as the card conversion was not completed until September 2014.

Net gains on mortgage loans were $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $1.5 million in the year-ago quarter.  For the full year of 2015, net gains on mortgage loans totaled $7.4 million compared to $5.6 million in 2014. The quarterly comparative increase in net gains relate primarily to improved margins on sales.  The full-year increase in net gains is principally due to higher mortgage lending and sales volumes due to growth in both purchase money mortgages, (reflecting stronger housing activity) as well as in refinance activity (reflecting lower interest rates during parts of 2015) .

Mortgage loan servicing generated income of $1.3 million and a loss of $0.6 million in the fourth quarters of 2015 and 2014, respectively.  For all of 2015 and 2014, mortgage loan servicing generated income of $1.8 million and $0.8 million, respectively.  The comparative variances are due primarily to changes in the impairment reserve and in the level of amortization of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights.  The Company recorded a $0.8 million recovery and a $1.0 million impairment charge on capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights in the fourth quarters of 2015 and 2014, respectively.  Capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights totaled $12.4 million at Dec. 31, 2015 compared to $12.1 million at Dec. 31, 2014.  As of Dec. 31, 2015, the Company serviced approximately $1.64 billion in mortgage loans for others on which servicing rights have been capitalized.

Non-interest expenses totaled $22.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $22.9 million in the year-ago period.  For the full year of 2015, non-interest expenses totaled $88.5 million versus $90.0 million in 2014  Several categories of expenses declined in 2015 as compared to the year ago period, including occupancy, loan and collection, furniture, fixtures and equipment, FDIC deposit insurance, and credit card and bank service fees.  The declines reflect our efforts to improve our efficiency and was due to the impact of various factors during 2015, including bank branch consolidations and improved asset quality.

The Company recorded an income tax expense of $2.7 million and $9.4 million in the fourth quarter and full-year of 2015, respectively.  This compares to an income tax expense of $1.5 million and $7.2 million in the fourth quarter and full-year of 2014, respectively.  The full year 2014 income tax expense was reduced by a credit of approximately $0.7 million due to a true-up of the amount of unrecognized tax benefits relative to certain net operating loss carryforwards and the reversal of the valuation allowance on a capital loss carryforward that was believed to not be more likely than not to be realized prior to a strategy executed during the second quarter of 2014 that generated capital gains.

Asset Quality

Commenting on asset quality, President and CEO Kessel added:  “We made further progress in improving asset quality during 2015, as evidenced by declines in non-performing assets, loan net charge-offs, and credit related expenses.  In addition, thirty- to eighty-nine day delinquency rates at Dec. 31, 2015 were 0.14% for commercial loans and 0.66% for mortgage and consumer loans.  These early stage delinquency rates continue to be well-managed.”

(1) Excludes loans that are classified as “troubled debt restructured” that are still performing.
(2) Represents payment plans for which no payments have been received for 90 days or more and where the process to charge the applicable counterparty for the balance due has not been completed. These balances exclude receivables due from counterparties related to the cancellation of payment plan receivables.

Non-performing loans have declined by $4.5 million, or 29.6%, since year-end 2014.  The decline in non-performing loans primarily reflects loan charge-offs, pay-offs, negotiated transactions and the migration of loans into ORE.  ORE and repossessed assets totaled $7.2 million at Dec. 31, 2015, compared to $6.5 million at Dec. 31, 2014.  The slight increase in ORE during 2015 primarily reflects the migration of some income-producing commercial properties into ORE during the last quarter of the year.

The provision for loan losses was a credit of $1.7 million and a credit of $1.1 million in the fourth quarters of 2015 and 2014, respectively.  The provision for loan losses was a credit of $2.7 million and a credit of $3.1 million for all of 2015 and 2014, respectively.  The level of the provision for loan losses in each period reflects the Company’s overall assessment of the allowance for loan losses, taking into consideration factors such as loan mix, levels of non-performing and classified loans, and loan net charge-offs.  Loan net charge-offs were $0.36 million (0.10% annualized of average loans) in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $0.43 million (0.12% annualized of average loans) in the fourth quarter of 2014.  Loan net charge-offs were $0.7 million (0.05% of average loans) and $3.2 million (0.23% of average loans) for all of 2015 and 2014, respectively.  The full year decline in 2015 loan net charge-offs by category were: commercial loans $0.7 million; mortgage loans $1.4 million; and consumer/installment loans $0.4 million.  At Dec. 31, 2015, the allowance for loan losses totaled $22.6 million, or 1.49% of portfolio loans, compared to $26.0 million, or 1.84% of portfolio loans, at Dec. 31, 2014.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Capital

Total assets were $2.41 billion at Dec. 31, 2015, an increase of $160.3 million from Dec. 31, 2014.  Loans, excluding loans held for sale, were $1.52 billion at Dec. 31, 2015, compared to $1.41 billion at Dec. 31, 2014, an increase of 7.5%.  In December 2015, the Company purchased $32.6 million of single-family residential fixed rate jumbo mortgage loans from another Michigan-based financial institution.  These mortgage loans were all on properties located in Michigan, had a weighted average interest rate (after a 0.25% servicing fee) of 3.94% and a weighted average remaining contractual maturity of 344 months.

Deposits totaled $2.09 billion at Dec. 31, 2015, an increase of $161.7 million from Dec. 31, 2014.  The increase in deposits is due to growth in checking, savings and time (certificate of deposit) account balances.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $85.8 million at Dec. 31, 2015, versus $74.0 million at Dec. 31, 2014. Securities available for sale totaled $585.5 million at Dec. 31, 2015, versus $533.2 million at Dec. 31, 2014.  This $52.3 million increase is primarily due to the purchase of asset-backed securities and corporate securities during 2015.

Total shareholders’ equity was $251.1 million at Dec. 31, 2015, or 10.4% of total assets.  Tangible common equity totaled $248.8 million at Dec. 31, 2015, or $11.18 per share.  On Jan. 21, 2016, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of eight cents per share.  This dividend is payable on Feb. 16, 2016 to shareholders of record on Feb. 5, 2016.

Share Repurchase Plan

On Jan. 21, 2016, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized a share repurchase plan.  Under the terms of the share repurchase plan, the Company is authorized to buy back up to 5% of its outstanding common stock.    The repurchase plan is authorized to last through Dec. 31, 2016.

Under its 2015 share repurchase plan (which expired on Dec. 31, 2015), the Company repurchased 967,199 shares (or approximately 4.2% of its beginning of the year outstanding common stock) at a weighted average price of $13.96 per share.

The Company intends and expects to accomplish the 2016 repurchases through open market transactions, though the Company could effect repurchases through other means, such as privately negotiated transactions.  The timing and amount of any share repurchases will depend on a variety of factors, including, among others, securities law restrictions, the trading price of the Company's common stock, other regulatory requirements, potential alternative uses for capital, and the Company's financial performance. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and it may be modified or suspended at any time at the Company's discretion. The Company expects to fund any repurchases from cash on hand.
