Item 2.02 - Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 19, 2019, Park National Corporation (“Park”) issued a news release (the “Financial Results News Release”) announcing financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019. A copy of the Financial Results News Release is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.

Park's management uses certain non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures to evaluate Park's performance. Specifically, management reviews return on average tangible equity, return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share. Management has included in the Financial Results News Release information relating to the annualized return on average tangible equity, annualized return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share for the three months ended and at March 31, 2019, December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2018. For purposes of calculating the annualized return on average tangible equity, a non-GAAP financial measure, net income for each period is divided by average tangible equity during the period. Average tangible equity equals average shareholders' equity during the applicable period less average goodwill and other intangibles during the applicable period. For the purpose of calculating the annualized return on average tangible assets, a non-GAAP financial measure, net income for each period is divided by average tangible assets during the period. Average tangible assets equals average assets during the applicable period less average goodwill and other intangibles during the applicable period. For the purpose of calculating tangible equity to tangible assets, a non-GAAP financial measure, tangible equity is divided by tangible assets. Tangible equity equals total shareholders' equity less goodwill and other intangibles, in each case at period end. Tangible assets equals total assets less goodwill and other intangibles, in each case at period end. For the purpose of calculating tangible book value per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, tangible equity is divided by the number of common shares outstanding, in each case at period end. Management believes that the disclosure of return on average tangible equity, return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share presents additional information to the reader of the consolidated financial statements, which, when read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, assists in analyzing Park's operating performance, ensures comparability of operating performance from period to period, and facilitates comparisons with the performance of Park's peer financial holding companies and bank holding companies, while eliminating certain non-operational effects of acquisitions. In the Financial Results News Release, Park has provided a reconciliation of average tangible equity to average shareholders' equity, average tangible assets to average assets, tangible equity to total shareholders' equity and tangible assets to total assets solely for the purpose of complying with SEC Regulation G and not as an indication that return on average tangible equity, return on average tangible assets, tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible book value per share are substitutes for return on average equity, return on average assets, total shareholders' equity to total assets and book value per share, respectively, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Net interest income of $66.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 represented a $4.8 million, or 7.9%, increase compared to $61.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The increase was the result of a $10.0 million increase in interest income, partially offset by a $5.2 million increase in interest expense.
The $10.0 million increase in interest income was due to a $9.5 million increase in interest income on loans, along with a $0.5 million increase in interest income on investments. The increase in interest income on loans was partially the result of a $391.8 million increase in average loans from $5.28 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2018, to $5.67 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Additionally, the yield on loans increased by 35 basis points to 5.06% for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to 4.71% for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Interest income was also impacted by

the acquisition of NewDominion on July 1, 2018. NewDominion contributed $3.8 million to interest income at PNB during the three months ended March 31, 2019.
The $5.2 million increase in interest expense was primarily due to a $5.0 million increase in interest expense on deposits. The increase in interest expense on deposits was partially the result of a $172.8 million, or 4.0%, increase in average interest-bearing deposits from $4.36 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2018, to $4.53 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Additionally, the cost of deposits increased by 43 basis points from 0.54% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to 0.97% for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Interest expense was also impacted by the acquisition of NewDominion on July 1, 2018. NewDominion contributed $351,000 to interest expense at PNB during the three months ended March 31, 2019.
The provision for loan losses of $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 represented an increase of $2.5 million, compared to a recovery of loan losses of $67,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Refer to the “Credit Metrics and Provision for (Recovery of) Loan Losses” section for additional details regarding the level of the provision for (recovery of) loan losses recognized in each period presented above.
Other income of $20.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 represented an increase of $793,000, or 4.0%, compared to $19.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The $793,000 increase was primarily related to a $653,000 increase in income related to partnership investments which is included in miscellaneous income, a $366,000 increase in debit card fee income, a $327,000 increase in fiduciary income, and a decrease of $2.3 million in net losses on the sale of securities, offset by a $1.6 million decrease in net gains on sale of OREO, a $505,000 decrease in other components of net periodic benefit income, a $363,000 decrease in service charges on deposit accounts, and a decrease of $339,000 in non yield loan fee income.
Other expense of $52.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 represented an increase of $3.0 million, or 6.1%, compared to $49.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The $3.0 million increase was related to a $1.5 million increase in employee benefits expense, primarily related to increased group insurance costs, payroll taxes and an increase in the KSOP match from 25% to 50%, a $644,000 increase in professional fees and services expense, a $341,000 increase in data processing expense, and a $289,000 increase in core deposit intangible amortization expense, offset by a $308,000 decrease in other insurance expense. Other expense was also impacted by the acquisition of NewDominion on July 1, 2018. NewDominion contributed $2.1 million to other expense at PNB during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

The net interest income for All Other included, for all periods presented, interest income on subordinated debt investments in PNB, which were eliminated in the consolidated Park National Corporation totals, as well as interest income on SEPH impaired loan relationships.

Net interest income decreased to $169,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $2.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease was the result of a decrease in interest payments received from SEPH impaired loan relationships.

SEPH had net recoveries of $87,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to net recoveries of $176,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Other income of $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 represented a decrease of $5.7 million, compared to $7.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The $5.7 million decrease was largely due to a $3.4 million decrease in income related to certain equity securities, a $2.7 million decrease in gain on sale of OREO, net, and a $1.0 million decrease in loan fee income as a result of a reduction in payments received from SEPH impaired loan relationships, offset by a $1.3 million increase in income related to partnership investments which is included in miscellaneous income.

Other expense of $4.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 represented a decrease of $539,000, or 11.9%, compared to $4.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The $539,000 decrease was primarily related to a decrease of $920,000 in professional fees and services, offset by smaller increases across multiple categories.
