Community Bank System Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results and COVID-19 Pandemic Update

Company Release - 10/26/2020 6:45 AM ET

SYRACUSE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Community Bank System, Inc. (NYSE: CBU) reported third quarter 2020 net income of $42.8 million, or $0.79 per fully-diluted share. This compares to net income of $39.2 million, or $0.75 per share, for the third quarter of 2019 and $35.2 million, or $0.66 per share, in the second quarter of 2020. The $0.04, or 5.3%, increase in earnings per share year-over-year was driven by a significant decrease in acquisition-related expenses, as well as increases in both net interest income and noninterest revenues, offset, in part, by increases in provision for credit losses, non-acquisition related operating expenses, income taxes and fully-diluted shares outstanding, as well as litigation reserve expense. The $0.13, or 19.7%, increase in earnings per share from the linked second quarter was largely driven by significantly lower acquisition-related expenses, an increase in net interest income, an increase in noninterest revenues, and a significant decrease in the provision for credit losses, offset, in part, by increases in non-acquisition related operating expenses, litigation reserve expense, income taxes and fully-diluted shares outstanding. Operating diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP), which excludes, on an after-tax basis, acquisition expenses, acquisition related provision for credit losses, litigation reserve expense and unrealized loss on equity securities, were $0.85 for the third quarter of 2020. This compares to operating diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP) of $0.84 for the third quarter of 2019 and $0.76 for the second quarter of 2020.

“The Company generated very strong results in the third quarter despite of the significant challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and related market conditions,” said Mark E. Tryniski, President and CEO. “Operating earnings per share increased $0.01, or 1.2%, from the prior year’s third quarter and $0.09, or 11.8%, on a linked quarter basis. The Company’s adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue per share of $1.10 matched the third quarter 2019 results. Total revenues were up $7.7 million, or 5.3%, over the second quarter of 2020 as we recorded increases in net interest income, banking noninterest revenues, employee benefit services revenues and wealth management and insurance services revenues. The strength of our nonbanking businesses is becoming increasingly evident as the pandemic continues to run its course. On a year-to-date basis, the total revenues from our nonbanking business are up $3.6 million, or 3.1%. From an asset quality perspective, the Company experienced a significant decrease in the number and outstanding balances of loans under COVID-related forbearance. At September 30, 2020, 216 borrowers, representing $193 million of loans outstanding, or 2.6% of total loans, remained under a forbearance agreement, which is down from 3,699 borrowers, representing $704 million of loans outstanding, or 9.4% of total loans at June 30, 2020. Although we expect to experience an increase in nonperforming loans, loan delinquency and potentially net-charge offs in future periods, through the end of the third quarter these credit metrics remained generally consistent with pre-COVID levels. On a year-to-date basis, annualized net charge-offs to average loans were just seven basis points. Nonperforming loans to total loans outstanding stood at 0.43% and delinquent loans to total loans outstanding were 0.79%. Loans outstanding at the end of the third quarter decreased $69.4 million, or 0.9% from the end of the linked second quarter due to weak economic conditions, but deposit levels remain extraordinarily high due primarily to the retention of a significant portion of Federal stimulus-related funds received by customers.”

Mr. Tryniski added, “Although we expect to continue to navigate strong industry headwinds, particularly around asset quality, net interest margin, and current and future federal monetary and fiscal policies, we believe our Company remains well-prepared to withstand their impacts. The Company continues to maintain very high levels of capital and liquidity, diversified revenue streams through its nonbanking businesses, strong credit performance and an exceptional core deposit base.”

The Company recorded total revenues of $152.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $4.3 million, or 2.9%, from the prior year’s third quarter. The increase in total revenues between the periods was driven by a $1.7 million, or 1.9%, increase in net interest income, a $4.0 million increase in mortgage banking revenues, a $0.8 million, or 3.4%, increase in employee benefit services revenues and a $0.5 million, or 3.6%, increase in wealth management and insurance services revenues, offset, in part, by a $2.8 million, or 15.7%, decrease in deposit service and other banking fees. Total revenues were up $7.7 million, or 5.3%, on a linked quarter basis. The Company recorded a $1.0 million, or 1.1%, increase in net interest income, a $2.3 million, or 17.4% increase in deposit service and other banking fees, a $2.5 million, or 184%, increase in mortgage banking revenue, a $1.1 million, or 4.5%, increase in employee benefit service revenues, and a $0.9 million, or 6.0%, increase in wealth management and insurance services revenues on a linked quarter basis.

The Company recorded net interest income of $93.0 million in the third quarter of 2020. This represents a $1.7 million, or 1.9%, increase over the third quarter of 2019. The increase was driven by a $2.15 billion, or 21.9%, increase in average earning assets between the periods, offset, in part by a 61 basis point decrease in the net interest margin. The increase in earning assets was driven by large net inflows of funds from government stimulus programs, Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loan originations and the acquisition of Steuben Trust Corporation (“Steuben”) in the second quarter of 2020. The 61 basis point decrease in net interest margin was driven by a 75 basis point decrease in tax-equivalent earning asset yields between the periods, partially offset by a 16 basis point decrease in the total cost of funds. The large drop in earning asset yields was due to a significant decrease in market interest rates between the periods and a significant change in the composition of earning assets, including a $635.1 million increase in average cash equivalents that earned only a 0.10% yield during the third quarter of 2020. This compares to a yield of 2.19% earned on cash equivalents during the third quarter of 2019.

Interest income and fees on loans decreased $0.3 million, or 0.4%, over the comparable prior year quarter. Although average loans outstanding increased substantially over the comparable prior year quarter, interest income and fees on loans decreased modestly due to a significant decrease in market interest rates. Average loans outstanding increased $773.1 million, or 11.5% year-over-year due to the Steuben acquisition and the origination of PPP loans, while the average yield on loans decreased 49 basis points, from 4.72% in the third quarter of 2019 to 4.23% in the third quarter of 2020. Interest income on investments, including cash equivalents, decreased $0.9 million, or 4.7%, between the third quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2020. The decrease is reflective of lower market interest rates and a significant increase in the proportion of low-yield cash equivalents, offset, in part, by a $743.7 million, or 30.9%, increase in the average book value of investments. The tax-equivalent average yield on investments, including cash equivalents, decreased from 2.52% in the third quarter of 2019 to 1.67% in the third quarter of 2020. Interest expense was $2.8 million lower than the previous year’s third quarter, driven by a 20 basis point decrease in the cost on interest-bearing liabilities partially offset by a $1.16 billion, or 17.2%, increase in average interest-bearing liability balances. The average cost of deposits was 0.13% in the third quarter of 2020, as compared to 0.26% in the third quarter of 2019, reflective of market driven rate decreases for deposits between the periods and significant increases in noninterest bearing deposit balances. By comparison, the average cost of deposits during the second quarter of 2020 was 0.17%.

The Company recorded $1.9 million in the provision for credit losses during the third quarter of 2020. This amount is significantly less than the amounts recorded in the prior two quarters of 2020 and only $0.1 million greater than the amount recorded in the third quarter of 2019. The Company recorded $5.6 million in the provision for credit losses during the first quarter and $9.8 million in the second quarter. The second quarter provision for credit losses included $3.2 million of acquisition-related provision for credit losses due to the Company’s acquisition of Steuben with the remaining $6.6 million largely attributable to COVID-19 related factors. The decrease in the provision for credit losses during the third quarter, as compared to the prior two quarters, was due to improving economic conditions, modest levels of delinquent and nonperforming loans, a decrease in loans outstanding, low levels of net charge-offs and a large decrease in the number and amount of the Company’s loan balances subject to borrower forbearance. During the first two quarters of 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, financial conditions deteriorated rapidly as state governments shutdown business activities in the Company’s markets and unemployment levels spiked. These conditions drove the Company to build its allowance for credit losses during the first two quarters of 2020 to account for expected life of loan losses in the loan portfolio. It is expected that improving conditions, including a continued decline in unemployment rates, will have a dampening impact on provision amounts in the coming quarters. However, this may be offset by the Company’s anticipation that there may be a significant increase in delinquency and nonperforming loan balances in future quarters due to it being unlikely that all COVID-affected borrowers will resume full payment of contractual amounts upon expiration of their forbearance agreement. The Company recorded loan net charge-offs of $1.3 million, or 0.07% annualized, during the third quarter of 2020. Comparatively, loan net-charge offs in the third quarter of 2019 were $1.6 million, or 0.10% annualized. On a year-to-date basis, the Company recorded net charge-offs of $3.7 million, or 0.07% annualized. This compares to $5.4 million, or 0.11% annualized, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019. Since the ultimate effect the COVID-19 pandemic will have on the Company’s credit losses is still unknown and highly uncertain, the decrease in the provision for credit losses during the third quarter should not be interpreted as a trend or utilized to forecast provision in future quarters. It is possible that the provision will be somewhat uncertain in future quarters as credit loss expectations change and borrowers’ financial conditions and circumstances become more apparent.

The Company recorded $59.7 million in noninterest revenues in the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $57.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. This represents a $2.6 million, or 4.5%, increase in noninterest revenues between the periods, $1.2 million of which is attributable to banking-related noninterest revenues and $1.4 million is related to nonbanking noninterest revenues. The increase in banking noninterest revenues was due to a $4.0 million increase in mortgage banking revenues, offset, in part, by a $2.8 million decrease in deposit service and other banking fees. Between the periods, the Company increased its commitment to sell secondary market eligible residential mortgage loans, which drove an increase in mortgage banking revenue from a $0.1 million loss in the third quarter of 2019 to a $3.9 million net gain in the third quarter of 2020. The decrease in deposit service and other banking fees was driven by lower overdraft and other deposit revenues, offset partially by higher debit card interchange revenues. Employee benefit services revenues for the third quarter of 2020 were $25.2 million. This represents a $0.8 million, or 3.4%, increase over third quarter 2019 and is attributable to increases in plan administration, recordkeeping and trustee fees. The Company recorded $15.4 million in wealth management and insurance services revenues during the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $14.9 million during the third quarter of 2019. The $0.5 million, or 3.6%, increase in wealth management and insurance revenues was attributable to organic growth in those businesses. Noninterest revenues increased $6.7 million, or 12.7%, on a linked quarter basis. This was driven by a $4.8 million, or 33.4%, increase in banking-related revenues including a $2.3 million, or 17.4%, increase in deposit service and other banking revenues and a $2.5 million, or 184%, increase in mortgage banking revenues. Wealth management and insurance services revenues increased $0.9 million, or 6.0%, between linked quarters, while employee benefit services revenues increased, $1.1 million, or 4.5%.

The Company recorded $97.0 million in total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2020. This compares to $96.9 million of total operating expenses recorded in the third quarter of 2019, and $90.9 million recorded in the linked second quarter of 2020. During the third quarter of 2020, the Company incurred $0.8 million of acquisition-related expenses and $3.0 million of litigation reserve expense. Exclusive of these items, the Company recorded $93.2 million of operating expenses in the third quarter of 2020. This compares to $90.9 million in operating expenses recorded in the third quarter of 2019, exclusive of $6.1 million of acquisition-related expenses, and $87.5 million in operating expenses in the linked second quarter of 2020, exclusive of $3.4 million of acquisition-related expenses. The acquisition expenses recorded in the second and third quarters of 2020 were incurred in connection with the Company’s acquisition of Steuben. The acquisition expenses recorded in the third quarter of 2019 were incurred in connection with the Company’s acquisition of Kinderhook Bank Corp. The litigation reserve expense recorded in the third quarter of 2020, was due to the accrual of estimated loss from an overdraft disclosure class action lawsuit brought against the Company. The $2.3 million, or 2.6%, year-over-year increase in operating expenses between quarters was attributable to a $1.2 million, or 2.2%, increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $1.4 million, or 13.3%, increase in data processing and communications expenses, a $0.3 million, or 3.4%, increase in occupancy and equipment expense, offset, in part, by a $0.2 million, or 2.3%, decrease in other expenses and a $0.4 million, or 9.6%, decrease in amortization of intangible assets. Although the Company continued to experience reduced levels of business activities during the third quarter of 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the resumption of certain marketing and business development activities and incremental costs associated with operating a larger organization as a result of the acquisition of Steuben, resulted in a $2.3 million, or 2.6%, net increase in operating expenses. The $5.7 million, or 6.5%, increase in operating expenses between the third quarter of 2020 and the linked second quarter was driven by a $2.6 million, or 4.7% increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $1.3 million, or 11.7%, increase in data processing and communications expenses, a $0.4 million, or 3.9%, increase in occupancy and equipment expenses and a $1.4 million, or 16.4%, increase in other expenses. The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2020 was 20.3%, consistent with the second quarter of 2020, but down from 21.1% in the third quarter of 2019.

The Company also provides supplemental reporting of its results on an “operating,” “adjusted” or “tangible” basis, from which it excludes the after-tax effect of amortization of core deposit and other intangible assets (and the related goodwill, core deposit intangible and other intangible asset balances, net of applicable deferred tax amounts), accretion on non-impaired purchased loans, expenses associated with acquisitions, acquisition-related provision for credit losses, litigation reserve expense, the unrealized gain (loss) on equity securities and net gain on sale of investments. In addition, the Company provides supplemental reporting for “adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision net revenues,” which subtracts the provision for credit losses, acquisition expenses, litigation reserve expense, net gain on sale of investments and unrealized gain (loss) on equity securities from income before income taxes. The amounts for such items are presented in the tables that accompany this release. Although these items are non-GAAP measures, the Company’s management believes this information helps investors understand the effect of acquisition and other non-recurring activity in its reported results. Diluted adjusted net earnings per share were $0.88 in both the third quarter of 2020 and third quarter of 2019. Similarly, adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue per share in both the third quarters of 2020 and 2019 were $1.10, as compared to $1.08 in the second quarter of 2020.

Financial Position

The Company’s total assets increased to $13.85 billion at September 30, 2020, which represents a $2.25 billion, or 19.4% increase over the last twelve months and a $401.1 million, or 3.0%, increase over the prior quarter end. The substantial increase in the Company’s total assets over the last twelve months was largely due to the Steuben acquisition in the second quarter of 2020 and the very large inflows of government stimulus-related deposit funding between the periods. Similarly, average earning assets increased substantially over the prior year, from $9.81 billion in the third quarter of 2019 to $11.96 billion in the third quarter of 2020, a $2.15 billion, or 21.9% increase. This included a $773.1 million, or 11.5%, increase in average total loans outstanding, a $743.7 million, or 30.9%, increase in average total investment securities and a $635.1 million, or 95.4%, increase in average outstanding cash equivalents. On a linked quarter basis, average earning assets increased $852.5 million, or 7.7%, due largely to net inflows of government stimulus funds, with average outstanding cash equivalents increasing $478.0 million, or 58.1%. Average loan balances increased $289.4 million, or 4.0%, due primarily to the Steuben acquisition and higher average PPP loan balances. The average book value of investment securities increased $85.1 million, or 2.8%, from the linked second quarter due to the Steuben merger and the related acquisition of its investment securities portfolio. Average deposit balances increased $2.01 billion, or 22.6%, between the third quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2020 and $823.0 million, or 8.1%, on a linked quarter basis.

Ending loans at September 30, 2020 were $7.46 billion. This was $69.4 million, or 0.9%, lower than linked second quarter ending loans of $7.53 billion, but up $605.5 million, or 8.8% from one year prior. During the second quarter 2020, the Company acquired $339.7 million of loans in the Steuben transaction and originated $507.2 million of PPP loans. Exclusive of the loans acquired in the Steuben transaction and PPP, ending loans outstanding at September 30, 2020 decreased, $241.4 million, or 3.5%, from one year prior due largely to a significant slow-down in consumer and business activities due the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Company’s liquidity position remains extremely strong. The Company’s primary Bank subsidiary maintains a funding base largely comprised of core noninterest-bearing demand deposit accounts and low cost interest-bearing interest checking, savings and money market deposit accounts with customers that operate, reside or work within its branch footprint. At September 30, 2020, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents balances, net of float, were $1.73 billion. The Company also maintains an available-for-sale investment securities portfolio, comprised primarily of highly-liquid U.S.Treasury securities, highly-rated municipal securities and U.S. agency mortgage-backed securities. At September 30, 2020, the Company’s available-for-sale investment securities portfolio totaled $3.22 billion, $1.25 billion of which was unpledged as collateral. Net unrealized gains on the portfolio at that time were $154.3 million. The Bank’s unused borrowing capacity at the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York at September 30, 2020 was $1.65 billion and it maintained $259.4 million of funding availability at the Federal Reserve Bank’s discount window.

Although there remains uncertainty around the magnitude and duration of the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company’s management believes that its financial position, including high levels of capital, will allow it to successfully endure the negative economic impacts of the crisis. The Company’s capital planning and management activities, coupled with its historically strong earnings performance, diversified streams of revenue and prudent dividend practices, have allowed it to build and maintain strong capital reserves. Shareholders’ equity of $2.10 billion at September 30, 2020 was $258.2 million, or 14.0%, higher than one year prior and up $17.3 million, or 0.8%, from the end of the linked second quarter. The increase in shareholders’ equity over the last four quarters was primarily driven by solid earnings generation and capital retention, as well as the Steuben acquisition and an increase in accumulated other comprehensive income due primarily to an increase in net unrealized gains on the Company’s available-for-sale investment securities portfolio. At September 30, 2020, all of the Company’s regulatory capital ratios significantly exceeded well-capitalized standards. More specifically, the Company’s tier 1 leverage ratio, a common measure to evaluate a financial institutions capital strength, was 10.21% at September 30, 2020, which represents over two times the regulatory well-capitalized standard of 5.0%. This compares to 10.76% at the end of the third quarter of 2019 and 10.79% at the end of the second quarter of 2020, with the modest declines in the ratio primarily being driven by the organic asset growth generated from the significant deposit inflows noted above. The Company’s net tangible equity to net tangible assets ratio was 9.92% at September 30, 2020, up from 9.68% a year earlier and down from 10.08% at the end of the second quarter of 2020. The decreases in the net tangible equity to net tangible assets ratio and the tier 1 leverage ratio during the third quarter was due to the significant organic growth in total assets between the comparable periods as a result of the strong inflow of deposits noted above.

As previously announced in December 2019, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program authorizing the repurchase of up to 2.6 million shares of the Company’s common stock during a twelve-month period starting January 1, 2020. Such repurchases may be made at the discretion of the Company’s senior management based on market conditions and other relevant factors and will be acquired through open market or privately negotiated transactions as permitted under Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and other applicable legal requirements. There were no shares repurchased pursuant to the program in the third quarter of 2020. Although the approved stock repurchase program has not been rescinded, management does not anticipate purchasing shares through this program during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Allowance for Credit Losses and Asset Quality

During the first quarter of 2020, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, also known as Current Expected Credit Losses (“CECL”). Upon the adoption of CECL on January 1, 2020, the Company’s allowance for credit losses increased $1.4 million, from $49.9 million at December 31, 2019 to $51.3 million. Following the adoption of CECL, the Company’s allowance for credit losses has increased by $13.7 million, or 26.7%, $3.6 million of which was due to the Steuben acquisition and $10.1 million of which was primarily due to credit loss expectations associated with COVID-19’s adverse impact on economic and business operating conditions. The table below illustrates the Company’s changes in the allowance for credit losses prior to CECL adoption through the end of the third quarter.

At September 30, 2020, nonperforming (90+ days past due and non-accruing) loans were 0.43% of total loans outstanding. This compares to 0.42% of total loans outstanding at the end of the third quarter of 2019 and 0.36% at the end of the second quarter of 2020. Total delinquent loans, which includes nonperforming loans and loans thirty or more days delinquent, to total loans outstanding were 0.79% at the end of the third quarter of 2020. This compares to 0.85% at the end of the third quarter of 2019 and 0.72% at the end of the second quarter of 2020. The Company recorded net charge-offs of $1.3 million, or 0.07% annualized, in the third quarter of 2020. This compares to net charge-offs of $1.6 million, or 0.10% annualized, in the third quarter of 2019 and $0.9 million, or 0.05%, in the linked second quarter of 2020. The allowance for credit losses to total loans was 0.87% at September 30, 2020, compared to 0.86% at June 30, 2020 and 0.72% at September 30, 2019.

The Company participated in both rounds of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Security Act (“CARES Act”) PPP, a specialized low-interest loan program funded by the U.S. Treasury Department and administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). As of September 30, 2020, the Company’s business lending portfolio included 3,473 PPP loans with a total balance of $507.2 million. Under the PPP, the SBA may forgive all or a portion of the loan amount if the borrower meets certain conditions. Through September 30, 2020, the Company has not received any notifications from the SBA that any of its borrowers’ loans were forgiven.

From a credit risk and lending perspective, the Company has taken actions to identify, assess and monitor its COVID-19 related credit exposures based on asset class and borrower type. No specific credit impairment has been identified within the Company’s investment securities portfolio, including the Company’s municipal securities portfolio since the onset of the pandemic. With respect to the Company’s lending activities, the Company implemented a customer forbearance program to assist both consumer and business borrowers that may be experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 related challenges. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had 216 borrowers in forbearance due to COVID-19 related financial hardship, representing $193 million in outstanding loan balances, or 2.6% of total loans outstanding. This compares to 3,699 borrowers in forbearance at June 30, 2020, representing $704 million in outstanding loan balances, or 9.4% of total loans outstanding.

Loans in forbearance status continued to accrue interest during the forbearance period unless otherwise classified as nonaccrual. Consistent with industry regulatory guidance, borrowers that were otherwise current on loan payments that were granted COVID-19 related financial hardship payment deferrals were reported as current loans throughout the agreed upon deferral period. Through the end the third quarter, the payment deferrals granted under COVID-19 related forbearance were deemed to be an insignificant borrower concession, and therefore, not classified as troubled-debt restructured loans. Borrowers that were delinquent in their payments to the Bank prior to requesting a COVID-19 related financial hardship payment deferral were reviewed on a case-by-case basis for troubled debt restructure classification and nonperforming loan status.

The Company anticipates that the number and amount of COVID-19 financial hardship forbearance agreements will decrease during the fourth quarter of 2020, but also anticipates that delinquent and nonperforming loans will increase in future periods as borrowers that continue to experience COVID-19 related financial hardship will be unable to resume loan payments consistent with their contractual obligations.

Dividend Increase

During the third quarter of 2020, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.42 per share on its common stock, up 2.4% from the $0.41 dividend declared in the third quarter of 2019, representing an annualized yield of 2.9% based upon the $58.92 closing price of the Company’s stock on October 23, 2020. The one cent increase declared in the third quarter of 2020 marked the 28th consecutive year of dividend increases for the Company.

COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 crisis is expected to continue to impact the Company’s financial results, as well as demand for its services and products during the remainder of the fourth quarter of 2020 and likely for a significant portion of 2021. The short and long-term implications of the COVID-19 crisis, and related government monetary and fiscal stimulus measures, on the Company’s future operations, revenues, earnings, allowance for credit losses, capital reserves, and liquidity are difficult to fully assess and remain uncertain at this time.
