Company Release - 4/29/2020 6:00 PM ET

Poplar Bluff, Missouri, April 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Poplar Bluff, Missouri - Southern Missouri Bancorp, Inc. (“Company”) (NASDAQ: SMBC), the parent corporation of Southern Bank (“Bank”), today announced preliminary net income available to common stockholders for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 of $5.1 million, a decrease of $2.0 million, or 28.1%, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. The decrease was attributable to increases in the provision for loan losses and noninterest expense, and decreased noninterest income, partially offset by an increase in net interest income and a decrease in the provision for income taxes. Preliminary net income was $.55 per fully diluted common share for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, a decrease of $.21 as compared to the $.76 per fully diluted common share reported for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Highlights for the third quarter of fiscal 2020:

  • Annualized return on average assets was 0.88%, while annualized return on average common equity was 8.1%, as compared to 1.30% and 12.5%, respectively, in the same quarter a year ago, and 1.36% and 12.6%, respectively, in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the linked quarter.
     
  • Earnings per common share (diluted) were $.55, down $.21, or 27.6%, as compared to the same quarter a year ago, and down $.29, or 34.5%, from the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the linked quarter.
     
  • Provision for loan losses was $2.9 million, an increase of $2.4 million, or 480.4%, as compared to the same period of the prior year, and up $2.5 million, or 634.5%, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the linked quarter. The increase was attributable primarily to increased uncertainty regarding the economic environment resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the potential impact on the Company’s borrowers. Nonperforming assets were $14.9 million, or 0.63% of total assets, at March 31, 2020, as compared to $24.8 million, or 1.12% of total assets, at June 30, 2019, and $26.3 million, or 1.21% of total assets, at March 31, 2019. The decrease primarily reflected progress by the Company in resolving acquired nonperforming assets resulting from the November 2018 acquisition of Gideon Bancshares Company and its subsidiary, First Commercial Bank (“the Gideon Acquisition”).
     
  • Net loan growth for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was $45.0 million, a continued strong annualized pace of growth, and better than recent March quarters for the Company. In general, seasonal impacts have been less pronounced of late. Net loans are up $121.4 million, or 6.6% in the first nine months of fiscal 2020.
     
  • Deposit balances increased $57.0 million in the third quarter, in what is typically a strong quarter for the Company’s deposit growth, and this growth came despite a decrease of $5.9 million in brokered deposits. Deposits are up $78.0 million, or 4.1%, in the first nine months of fiscal 2020, with growth negatively impacted by a reduction of $15.5 million in brokered deposits in the fiscal year to date.
     
  • Net interest margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was 3.63%, down from the 3.73% reported for the year ago period, and down from the 3.70% figure reported for the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the linked quarter. Discount accretion on acquired loan portfolios was lower in the current quarter as compared to the linked quarter and the year ago period. Additionally, as compared to the linked quarter, the Company noted a reduction in the amount of interest income resulting from resolution of loans that had been previously classified as nonaccrual.
     
  • Noninterest income was up 4.2% for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, excluding the impact of the prior period’s gain on available-for-sale securities, and was down 11.0% as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the linked quarter. The current period was impacted negatively by an impairment charge for mortgage servicing rights, discussed in detail below.
     
  • Noninterest expense was up 7.6% for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, as compared to the year ago period, and up 3.7% from the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the linked quarter. The current quarter was impacted negatively by an increase in provisioning for off-balance sheet credit exposures, in comparison to the year-ago period, while acquisition-related costs declined in comparison to the year-ago period, but increased modestly as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the linked period.  

Dividend Declared:

The Board of Directors, on April 21, 2020, declared a quarterly cash dividend on common stock of $0.15, payable May 29, 2020, to stockholders of record at the close of business on May 15, 2020, marking the 104th consecutive quarterly dividend since the inception of the Company. The Board of Directors and management believe the payment of a quarterly cash dividend enhances stockholder value and demonstrates our commitment to and confidence in our future prospects.

COVID-19 Pandemic Response:

Southern Missouri is committed to serving our communities in this difficult time, and to the safety of our team members and customers. We have taken a number of actions which merit mention in this quarterly update.

  • The Company has deferred or modified loan payments for loans totaling $206.2 million through Wednesday, April 22. Generally, the deferrals are for three-month periods, while interest-only modifications are for six months. Further information on deferrals and modifications is included in a table on page 10.
     
  • In the first round of funding made available through the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program, the Company originated 937 loans totaling $108.8 million through Wednesday, April 22.
     
  • Beginning Monday, March 23, the Company closed its lobbies to access except by appointment, and encouraged customers to utilize our online, mobile, drive-thru, or integrated teller machines (ITMs) for service when possible. We’ve seen notable increases in usage for these delivery channels. As an example, video teller activity through our ITMs in the first twelve weekdays and Saturdays in the month of April increased by 34% over the comparable period in March. We are currently planning to begin re-opening lobbies on Monday, May 4, subject to guidance by state and local authorities. In a short amount of time we significantly increased our telework capabilities, and have had as many as 30% of our team members working remotely for the last month either on a regular or rotating basis. No team members have been furloughed, and no furloughs are anticipated. Non-essential business travel has been suspended.
     
  • As the Company noted in a current report on Form 8-K filed March 23, 2020, to preserve capital and provide liquidity to meet the credit needs of its customers, activity under the Company’s stock repurchase program was temporarily suspended effective after the close of the market on Thursday, March 26, 2020.
     
  • To provide useful disclosure regarding lending concentrations in this environment of economic uncertainty, we have prepared additional information for inclusion in this release. See page 9.

Balance Sheet Summary:

The Company experienced balance sheet growth in the first nine months of fiscal 2020, with total assets of $2.4 billion at March 31, 2020, reflecting an increase of $160.0 million, or 7.2%, as compared to June 30, 2019. Asset growth was comprised mainly of increases in loans, cash and cash equivalents, and available-for-sale (“AFS”) securities.

AFS securities were $180.6 million at March 31, 2020, an increase of $15.1 million, or 9.1%, as compared to June 30, 2019. Cash equivalents and time deposits were a combined $57.1 million, an increase of $20.7 million, or 56.9%, as compared to June 30, 2019.

Loans, net of the allowance for loan losses, were $2.0 billion at March 31, 2020, an increase of $121.4 million, or 6.6%, as compared to June 30, 2019. The portfolio primarily saw growth in residential real estate loans, commercial real estate loans, and funded balances in construction loans, partially offset by declines in commercial loans, and consumer loans. Residential real estate loan balances were higher as the Company saw increases both in loans secured by multifamily and 1-to-4 family real estate. Commercial real estate loans were increased primarily due to loans secured by nonresidential properties, combined with a small increase in loans secured by agricultural real estate. Construction loan balances were increased as a result of both draws on existing construction loans and new loan originations. The decrease in commercial loan balances primarily reflected reductions in commercial and industrial loans and seasonal declines in agricultural operating and equipment loans. Reductions in consumer loans consisted primarily of loans secured by deposits, partially offset by a modest increase in home equity line of credit balances. Loans anticipated to fund in the next 90 days stood at $76.6 million at March 31, 2020, as compared to $77.7 million at March 31, 2019, and $83.3 million at June 30, 2019.

Nonperforming loans were $11.4 million, or 0.57% of gross loans, at March 31, 2020, as compared to $21.0 million, or 1.13% of gross loans at June 30, 2019, and $22.7 million, or 1.23% of gross loans, at March 31, 2019. Nonperforming assets were $14.9 million, or 0.63% of total assets, at March 31, 2020, as compared to $24.8 million, or 1.12% of total assets, at June 30, 2019, and $26.3 million, or 1.21% of total assets, at March 31, 2019. The decrease in nonperforming loans since June 30, 2019, was attributed primarily to the resolution of certain nonperforming loans acquired in the Gideon Acquisition. The Gideon Acquisition resulted in an increase in nonperforming loans of $12.9 million (at fair value) as of December 31, 2018, the quarter end following the acquisition. At June 30, 2019, nonperforming loans from that acquisition had declined to $10.2 million, and they have declined further to $2.4 million as of March 31, 2020. The decrease in nonperforming loans was also the principal reason for the decrease in nonperforming assets. Our allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2020, totaled $23.5 million, representing 1.18% of gross loans and 205.7% of nonperforming loans, as compared to $19.9 million, or 1.07% of gross loans and 94.7% of nonperforming loans, at June 30, 2019. For all impaired loans, the Company has measured impairment under ASC 310-10-35. Management believes the allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2020, is adequate, based on that measurement; however, there remains significant uncertainty regarding the possible length of the COVID-19 pandemic and the aggregate impact that it will have on global and regional economies, including uncertainty regarding the effectiveness of recent efforts by the U.S. government and Federal Reserve to respond to the pandemic and its economic impact. Management considered the impact of the pandemic on its consumer and business borrowers, particularly those business borrowers most affected by efforts to contain the pandemic, including our borrowers in the retail and multi-tenant retail industry, restaurants, and hotels.

The Company has been working towards adoption of ASU 2016-13, regarding the current expected credit loss (CECL) standard. Based on FASB implementation timelines, the standard was to be effective for the Company on July 1, 2020, following the end of our current fiscal year. Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Company has the option to temporarily delay implementation of the standard until the earlier of December 31, 2020, or the termination of the declared national emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, the Company is continuing to prepare as if we will adopt on July 1, 2020, but we will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate our options.

Total liabilities were $2.1 billion at March 31, 2020, an increase of $148.6 million, or 7.5%, as compared to June 30, 2019.

Deposits were $2.0 billion at March 31, 2020, an increase of $78.0 million, or 4.1%, as compared to June 30, 2019. Deposit growth was partially offset by a reduction in brokered deposits, which declined on net by $15.5 million, reflecting a decrease in brokered time deposits of $21.6 million, and an increase in brokered money market deposits of $6.1 million. Brokered time deposits were $23.3 million, and brokered money market deposits were $14.4 million, at March 31, 2020. The Company has utilized FHLB funding in lieu of brokered funding primarily due to rate and term availability. Public unit balances were $292.1 million at March 31, 2020, reflecting an increase of $25.3 million as compared to June 30, 2019, which is due in part to seasonal public unit flows of funds. In total, deposit balances saw increases in interest-bearing transaction accounts, money market deposit accounts, and noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, partially offset by declines in certificates of deposit and savings accounts. The average loan-to-deposit ratio for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was 99.9%, as compared to 97.2% for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

FHLB advances were $123.4 million at March 31, 2020, an increase of $78.5 million, or 174.7%, as compared to June 30, 2019, with the increase attributable to the Company’s use of this funding source to fund increases in loans, cash balances, and securities in excess of our increases in deposits and retained earnings. The increase consisted of $53.1 million in overnight funding and $25.4 million in term advances. Over the past several years, the Company has worked to move public unit and business customers from a swept repurchase agreement product, which required the use of the Company’s AFS securities portfolio to collateralize those borrowings, to a reciprocal deposit product. During the first quarter of fiscal 2020, the final customers utilizing the sweep product were migrated, and the Company saw a reduction of $4.4 million in this funding source as compared to June 30, 2019.

The Company’s stockholders’ equity was $249.9 million at March 31, 2020, an increase of $11.5 million, or 4.8%, as compared to June 30, 2019. The increase was attributable primarily to retained earnings, partially offset by cash dividends paid and by repurchases during the fiscal year of 182,598 Company shares acquired for $5.8 million, for an average price of $31.61 per share. As the Company noted in a current report on Form 8-K filed March 23, 2020, activity under the repurchase program was temporarily suspended effective after the close of the market on Thursday, March 26, 2020.

Quarterly Income Statement Summary:

The Company’s net interest income for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, was $19.4 million, an increase of $864,000, or 4.7%, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase was attributable primarily to a 7.7% increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets, partially offset by a decrease in net interest margin to 3.63% in the current three-month period, from 3.73% in the three-month period a year ago.

Loan discount accretion and deposit premium amortization related to the Company’s August 2014 acquisition of Peoples Bank of the Ozarks (Peoples), the June 2017 acquisition of Capaha Bank (Capaha), the February 2018 acquisition of Southern Missouri Bank of Marshfield (SMB-Marshfield), and the Gideon Acquisition resulted in an additional $410,000 in net interest income for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, as compared to $631,000 in net interest income for the same period a year ago. The decline is attributable to expected reductions in discount accretion as additional time has elapsed since the loan portfolios were acquired and balances have declined. The Company generally expects this component of net interest income will continue to decline over time, although volatility may occur to the extent we have periodic resolutions of specific credit impaired loans. Combined, these components of net interest income contributed eight basis points to net interest margin in the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, as compared to a contribution of 13 basis points in the same period of the prior fiscal year, and as compared to the 10 basis point contribution in the linked quarter, ended December 31, 2019, when net interest margin was 3.70%. Additionally, in the linked period, the Company recognized an additional $194,000 in interest income as a result of the resolution of nonperforming loans. This recognition of interest income contributed four basis points to the net interest margin in the linked period, without material comparable items in the current period.

The provision for loan losses for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, was $2.9 million, as compared to $491,000 in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Increased provisioning was attributable primarily to increased uncertainty regarding the economic environment and its potential impact on the Company’s borrowers. Stronger loan growth and increases in classified and delinquent credits also contributed. As a percentage of average loans outstanding, the provision for loan losses in the current three-month period represented a charge of 0.58% (annualized), while the Company recorded net charge offs during the period of 0.03% (annualized). During the same period of the prior fiscal year, the provision for loan losses as a percentage of average loans outstanding represented a charge of 0.11% (annualized), while the Company recorded net charge offs of 0.02% (annualized).

The Company’s noninterest income for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, was $3.9 million, a decrease of $90,000, or 2.3%, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. The year ago period included $244,000 in gains on sales of AFS securities, and $214,000 in other identified nonrecurring benefits. In the current period, increases in deposit account service charges and bank card interchange income were mostly offset by a decline in mortgage servicing income, as the Company recognized a $395,000 impairment of its mortgage servicing rights due to the decline in market interest rates and a coincident increase in expected prepayments. Deposit account service charges increased primarily as a result of a 12.7% increase in the number of NSF items presented, as well as a 12.0% increase in fees charged for NSF items effective October 1, 2019. These service charges typically see a seasonal reduction late in the March quarter when consumers receive income tax refunds, and the Company would expect that impact, coupled with COVID-19 Economic Impact Payments, reduced gasoline prices, and other spending reductions to result in an even more pronounced reduction in these charges in coming quarters. Bank card interchange income increased as a result of a 9.6% increase in bank card dollar volume and incentive benefits under a new affiliation contract. We anticipate interchange income may decline as well due to reductions in depositor purchasing activity.

Noninterest expense for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, was $14.2 million, an increase of $1.0 million, or 7.6%, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase was attributable primarily to increases in compensation and benefits, occupancy and data processing expenses, provisioning for off-balance sheet credit exposures, losses and expenses on foreclosed real estate, and bank card network expense, partially offset by a decrease in deposit insurance premiums. Based on the same qualitative evaluation of loss exposure utilized in the allowance for loan losses, the Company saw an increase in its off-balance sheet credit exposure, resulting in a charge of $300,000 in the current period, as compared to a charge of $9,000 in the year ago period. Partially offsetting these increases, the FDIC continued applying credits to the deposit insurance assessments due from smaller banks, such as the Company’s subsidiary, resulting in no deposit insurance premium expense for the Company in the current quarter, as compared to an expense of $157,000 in the year ago period. As the credits are exhausted in all material respects, the expense will return to a normalized level for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. After recording $243,000 in charges related to merger and acquisition activity in the same quarter a year ago, the Company recorded only $76,000 in comparable expenses in the current period. Additionally, the year ago period included $185,000 in other nonrecurring charges. The efficiency ratio for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, was 61.0%, as compared to 59.3% in the same period of the prior fiscal year, as noninterest expenses, including provision for off-balance sheet credit exposure, grew at a faster rate over the prior year as compared to net interest income, due to margin compression, and as compared to noninterest income, due primarily to the impairment charge recorded on the Company’s mortgage servicing rights.

The income tax provision for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, was $1.1 million, a decrease of $596,000, or 34.6%, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year, attributable primarily to lower pre-tax income, combined with a decrease in the effective tax rate, to 18.1%, as compared to 19.6% in the year-ago period.
