Company Release - 1/22/2020 5:00 PM ET

AURORA, IL / ACCESSWIRE / January 22, 2020 /Old Second Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company," "we," "us," and "our") (NASDAQ:OSBC), the parent company of Old Second National Bank (the "Bank"), today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2019. Our net income was $9.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to net income of $12.2 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019, and net income of $8.6 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Operating Results

  • Fourth quarter 2019 net income was $9.5 million, reflecting a decrease in earnings of $2.6 million from the third quarter of 2019, and an increase in earnings of $916,000 from the fourth quarter of 2018. Fourth quarter 2019 financial results were negatively impacted by net interest margin compression compared to the third quarter of 2019 and the fourth quarter of 2018. Also contributing to the linked quarter decrease in net income was a $3.4 million decrease in securities gains, net, in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to the third quarter of 2019. Partially offsetting these negative variances was the addition of a death benefit realized on BOLI in the fourth quarter of 2019 and mark to market gains on mortgage servicing rights ("MSRs"), compared to mark to market losses on MSRs in the third quarter of 2019 and the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Net interest and dividend income was $23.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, a decrease of $1.6 million, or 6.4%, from $24.8 million for the third quarter of 2019, and a decrease of $1.2 million, or 4.7%, from the fourth quarter of 2018. Net interest and dividend income in the fourth quarter of 2019 was negatively impacted by interest rate reductions over the past year, which more than offset increases in interest income due to loan growth in the year over year period.
  • Noninterest income was $9.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, a decrease of $2.7 million, or 22.6%, compared to $11.9 million for the third quarter of 2019, and an increase of $2.7 million, or 42.1%, compared to $6.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. The linked quarter decrease was primarily due to a $3.4 million decrease in securities gains, net. These decreases were partially offset by the addition of a $872,000 death benefit realized on BOLI in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $240,000 of mark to market gains on MSRs, compared to $946,000 of mark to market losses on MSRs in the third quarter of 2019. The increase in noninterest income in the year over year period was primarily driven by the addition of a $872,000 death benefit realized on BOLI in the fourth quarter of 2019 and a $1.7 million increase in total mortgage banking revenue.
  • Noninterest expense was $19.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, a decrease of $126,000, or 0.6%, compared to $20.0 million for the third quarter of 2019, and an increase of $1.1 million, or 5.6%, from $18.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. The linked quarter decrease was primarily attributable to decreases in salaries and employee benefits and computer and data processing costs, partially offset by increases in consulting fees included within other expense. The increase in noninterest expense in the year over year period was primarily attributable to higher salaries and employee benefits expense, occupancy, furniture and equipment expense and debit card interchange expense, partially offset by a decrease in other expense, primarily consisting of consulting and deferred director compensation related expense.
  • The provision for income taxes totaled $2.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $4.0 million for the third quarter of 2019 and $2.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. The linked quarter decrease of $1.1 million was primarily due to a decrease of $3.8 million in pretax income in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to the third quarter of 2019. A minimal change in the provision for income taxes in the year over year quarterly period was realized, as the increase in pre-tax income was due to the BOLI death benefit, which is nontaxable.
  • On January 21, 2020, our Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.01 per share payable on February 10, 2020, to stockholders of record as of January 31, 2020.

Asset Quality & Earning Assets

  • Nonperforming loans totaled $15.8 million at December 31, 2019, compared to $13.4 million at September 30, 2019, and $16.3 million at December 31, 2018. Credit metrics continue to be relatively stable regarding nonperforming loan levels, and management is carefully monitoring loans considered to be in a classified status. Nonperforming loans as a percent of total loans were 0.8% at December 31, 2019, 0.7% at September 30, 2019, and 0.9% at December 31, 2018. Purchased credit impaired ("PCI") loans acquired in our acquisition of ABC Bank totaled $8.6 million, net of purchase accounting adjustments, at December 31, 2019. We do not consider PCI loans, which showed evidence of deteriorated credit quality at acquisition, to be nonperforming assets if their cash flows and the timing of such cash flows continue to be estimable and probable of collection.
  • OREO assets totaled $5.0 million at December 31, 2019, compared to $4.7 million at September 30, 2019, and $7.2 million at December 31, 2018. We recorded writedowns of $120,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $203,000 in the third quarter of 2019, and $96,000 in the fourth quarter of 2018. Nonperforming assets, as a percent of total loans plus OREO, were 1.1% at December 31, 2019, 0.9% at September 30, 2019, and 1.2% at December 31, 2018.
  • Total loans were $1.93 billion at December 31, 2019, reflecting an increase of $31.0 million compared to September 30, 2019, and an increase of $33.8 million compared to December 31, 2018, due primarily to growth in our commercial, leases, and real estate-commercial portfolios. Average loans (including loans held-for-sale) for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $1.90 billion, reflecting an increase of $7.8 million from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of $45.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2018. Growth in the year over year period is due to organic growth in our leases, commercial, and real estate-commercial portfolios.
  • Available-for-sale securities totaled $484.6 million at December 31, 2019, compared to $488.4 million at September 30, 2019, and $541.2 million at December 31, 2018. Total securities available-for-sale remained relatively unchanged over the linked quarters, and a decline of $56.6 million was realized in the year over year period due primarily to security sales recorded in the third quarter of 2019.
