Exhibit 99.1
 
 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
NICOLET BANKSHARES, INC. ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER 2019 EARNINGS

Net income of $13.5 million, 25% above third quarter 2018
Net income of $42.3 million for first nine months of 2019, 40% higher than the comparable 2018 period
Earnings per diluted common share of $1.40 and $4.36 for the three and nine months ended September 30
Annualized return on average assets of 1.73% and 1.85% for the three and nine months ended September 30
$2.2 billion in loans at September 30, 5% increase over a year ago

Green Bay, Wisconsin, October 15, 2019 - Nicolet Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCBS) (“Nicolet”) announced third quarter 2019 net income of $13.5 million and earnings per diluted common share of $1.40, compared to $18.5 million and $1.91 for second quarter 2019, and $10.9 million and $1.09 for third quarter 2018, respectively. Annualized quarterly return on average assets was 1.73%, 2.46% and 1.45%, for third quarter 2019, second quarter 2019 and third quarter 2018, respectively.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $42.3 million, 40% higher than $30.2 million for the first nine months of 2018, and earnings per diluted common share was $4.36, 44% higher than $3.02 for the comparable period a year ago. Annualized return on average assets for the first nine months of 2019 and 2018 was 1.85% and 1.36%, respectively.

During second quarter 2019, net income favorably included $5.4 million (or $0.55 of diluted earnings per share) related to two actions combined, the sale of 80% of Nicolet's equity investment in a data processing entity ($7.4 million after-tax gain) and retirement-related compensation declared to benefit all employees after that sale ($2.0 million after-tax cost), impacting the 2019 year-to-date and linked-quarter comparisons.

"We continue to execute on our strategic initiatives and consistently deliver solid financial results for our shareholders," Bob Atwell, Chairman and CEO of Nicolet, said. "Our focus remains on organic and acquisition growth, loan and deposit pricing discipline in the challenging rate environment, and investing in operational efficiencies and innovations to serve the customer experience effectively.”

“We are pleased with improvements in all our revenue lines, especially our mortgage performance this quarter. Mortgage activity is a major portal to retail relationships and a granular deposit base," said Mike Daniels, President and CEO of Nicolet National Bank. “In this competitive environment, we also continue to generate strong commercial loan growth maintaining disciplined underwriting standards, and our credit quality remains excellent."

"We are now less than a month away from closing our acquisition of Choice Bank, the lead local bank in Oshkosh," Daniels said. "The integration plans are well underway, and we look forward to welcoming new employees and customers in early November."

At September 30, 2019, assets were $3.1 billion (up 3% since September 30, 2018), loans were $2.2 billion (up 5%), and deposits were $2.6 billion (up 2%). Since June 30, period end loans increased $40 million or 7% annualized, with the majority in commercial loans, while deposits increased $48 million or 7% annualized, with growth in transaction accounts exceeding the decline in time deposits. Year-over-year, average loans increased 3% and average deposits grew 2%.

Asset quality remained exceptional, with nonperforming assets of only $11 million, representing 0.34% of total assets at September 30, 2019. The allowance for loan losses represented 0.61% of total loans at September 30, 2019. The provision for loan losses was $0.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 (covering $0.4 million of net charge-offs), compared to $1.4 million (covering $1.0 million of net charge-offs) for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.





Compared to second quarter 2019, net interest income increased $0.2 million (1%), despite continued pressure from recent Federal Reserve cuts to short-term interest rates. Excluding net asset gains, third quarter noninterest income grew $1.0 million (9%) over second quarter, predominantly from stellar net mortgage income. Noninterest expense decreased $2.8 million (11%) from second quarter, due principally to $2.75 million of retirement-related compensation actions in second quarter. Income tax expense increased $1.8 million as third quarter returned to a more normal effective tax rate of 25.3%,whereas second quarter was 13.2% given the favorable tax treatment on the equity investment sale, BOLI death benefit, and the tax benefit on stock-based compensation.

Net interest income increased $2.2 million (8%) between the comparable third quarter periods, driven mostly by net positive volume and rate variances, as aggregate discount income was similar between the quarters. Net interest income and margin improvements benefited from a higher mix of average earning assets in loans, as well as a 22 bps increase in the earning asset yield and only a 13 bps increase in the cost of funds. Noninterest income excluding net asset gains increased $1.5 million (15%) mostly from strong net mortgage income, while noninterest expense was minimally changed (down $0.2 million or 1%) between the comparable third quarter periods.

Total capital was $428 million at September 30, 2019, an increase of $17 million or 4% since June 30, 2019, with strong third quarter earnings and positive net fair value investment changes. During third quarter 2019, we repurchased minimal shares of our common stock and will continue to be opportunistic with respect to such repurchases. At September 30, 2019, there remained $24.4 million authorized under the repurchase program, as modified, to be utilized from time-to-time to repurchase shares in the open market, through block transactions or in private transactions.

On June 26, 2019, Nicolet entered into a definitive merger agreement with Choice Bancorp, Inc. ("Choice") under which Choice will merge with and into Nicolet to create the largest community bank in the Oshkosh marketplace. The acquisition will involve stock-for-stock consideration at a fixed exchange ratio, subject to cap and collar provisions provided for in the merger agreement. At September 30, 2019, Choice had total assets of $438 million, loans of $347 million, deposits of $308 million, and equity of $46 million. The merger is expected to close on November 8, 2019, pending the Choice shareholder vote on October 22, 2019 and other customary closing conditions.
