  • Washington Trust Reports Second Quarter 2016 Earnings
    Company Release - 07/25/2016 16:05

    WESTERLY, R.I., July 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Washington Trust Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:WASH), parent company of The Washington Trust Company, today announced net income of $11.1 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016, compared to net income of $10.9 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, reported for the first quarter of 2016. 

    "Washington Trust posted solid second quarter earnings in a challenging economic environment," stated Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman and CEO.  "Total loans reached a record level, as a result of strong commercial loan and residential mortgage activity during the quarter.  Wealth management revenues and assets under administration also achieved all-time highs, despite financial market volatility."

    Selected highlights for the second quarter of 2016 include:

    • Returns on average equity and average assets remain solid at 11.50% and 1.14%, respectively.  Comparable amounts for the first quarter of 2016 were 11.50% and 1.16%, respectively.

    • Mortgage banking revenues amounted to $2.7 million, up by 23% on a linked quarter basis.  Mortgage loans sold to the secondary market totaled $139 million; the second highest quarterly volume in the past three years.

    • Total loans stood at $3.1 billion at June 30, 2016, up by 1% in the quarter and up by 5% from a year ago.

    • Total deposits amounted to $2.8 billion at March 31, 2016, down by 3% in the quarter and up by 2% from a year ago.

    Net Interest Income
    Net interest income totaled $26.8 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared to $27.7 million, in the first quarter.  Prior quarter net interest income included loan prepayment fee income of $1.0 million, compared to $48 thousand in the most recent quarter.  Excluding the impact of the loan prepayment fee income from both periods, net interest income was down slightly on a linked quarter basis.  The net interest margin was 3.05% for the second quarter of 2016, down by 19 basis points from the previous quarter.  Excluding the impact of the loan prepayment fee income in each period, the second quarter net interest margin was 3.05%, down by 8 basis points from the prior quarter.  The reduction in the net interest margin was largely due to lower yields on interest-earning assets as a result of the downward movement in longer-term market interest rates in 2016.  Other significant linked quarter changes included:

    • Average interest-earning assets increased by $94 million, due to growth in average balances of commercial loans in the quarter as well as an increase in average investment securities driven by portfolio additions near the end of the previous quarter.

    • Average interest-bearing liabilities rose by $88 million, reflecting increases in the average balance of Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston ("FHLBB") advances.  The cost of interest-bearing funds was 0.74%, unchanged from the previous quarter.

    Noninterest Income
    Noninterest income totaled $15.9 million for the second quarter of 2016, up by $1.3 million, or 9%, from the first quarter of 2016.  Significant linked quarter changes included:

    • Wealth management revenues totaled $9.5 million for the second quarter, up by $307 thousand, or 3%, from the prior quarter.  The increase included a $291 thousand increase in tax preparation fees, which are generally concentrated in the second quarter. Wealth management assets under administration amounted to $5.9 billion at June 30, 2016, up by $26 million on a linked quarter basis.  Managed assets continue to represent over 90% of total wealth management assets at June 30, 2016.

    • Mortgage banking benefited from strong activity levels as revenues totaled $2.7 million for the second quarter, up by $512 thousand, or 23%, on a linked quarter basis.  These results reflect both a higher volume and yield on loans sold to the secondary market.  Residential mortgage loans sold to the secondary market amounted to $139.0 million in the second quarter, compared to $106.0 million in the previous quarter.

    • Income from bank-owned life insurance ("BOLI") amounted to $1.1 million in the second quarter, up by $591 thousand, from the first quarter of 2016.  Included in the second quarter was a $589 thousand non-taxable gain due to the receipt of life insurance proceeds.

    • Loan related derivative income amounted to $508 thousand in the second quarter, down by $137 thousand, or 21%, from the prior quarter.  The decrease reflected a lower volume of commercial borrower interest rate swaps transactions.

    Noninterest Expenses
    Noninterest expenses totaled $26.0 million for the second quarter of 2016, up by $580 thousand, or 2%, from the prior quarter.  The largest increase was a $1.0 million increase in salaries and employee benefit costs, which included costs of $425 thousand incurred in the second quarter for various employee severance matters.  The remaining increase in salaries and employee benefit costs was concentrated in transaction-based commission expense associated with the increase in mortgage banking activities.  In first quarter of 2016, noninterest expenses included $431 thousand of debt prepayment penalty expense associated with the prepayment of $10.0 million in FHLBB advances.  There were no such expenses in the latest quarter.

    Income tax expense amounted to $5.2 million for the second quarter of 2016, down by $331 thousand from the amount recognized in the previous quarter.  The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2016 was 31.8%, compared to 33.4% for the first quarter of 2016.  The reduction in the effective tax rate for the second quarter is primarily due to the non-taxable gain related to the receipt of BOLI proceeds.

    Loans
    Total loans amounted to $3.1 billion at June 30, 2016, up by $34 million, or 1.1%, from the balance at the end of the first quarter.  The linked quarter change was due to growth of $57 million in the commercial real estate portfolio, which was partially offset by a decline of $23 million in the commercial and industrial portfolio.  The residential and consumer loan portfolio balances were relatively consistent with the period-end balances at March 31, 2016.  Included in the residential loan portfolio balance at the end of the second quarter was a $16.1 million purchase of whole loans acquired on June 28, 2016.  These loans were individually evaluated to our underwriting standards and predominantly secured by properties in Massachusetts.

    Investment Securities
    The securities portfolio amounted to $420 million at June 30, 2016, down by $11 million, or 2.5%, from the balance at March 31, 2016, due to calls, maturities and routine principal pay-downs, which were partially offset by the purchases of $52 million of additional U.S. government agency and agency mortgage-backed debt securities.  Investment securities were 11% of total assets as of June 30, 2016.

    Deposits and Borrowings
    Total deposits amounted to $2.8 billion at June 30, 2016, down by $90 million, or 3.1%, in the second quarter.  Excluding wholesale brokered time deposits, in-market deposits decreased by $75 million, or 2.9%, in the quarter.  The largest outflow during the quarter was $88 million of money market deposits, attributable to outflows associated with various institutional and governmental depositors.  A substantial portion of these outflows are considered to be seasonal in nature based on the business cycles of the underlying depositors.

    FHLBB advances amounted to $640 million at June 30, 2016, up by $153 million, or 31.4%, from March 31, 2016.

    Asset Quality
    Total past due loans a/mounted to $17.1 million, or 0.56% of total loans, at June 30, 2016, compared to $18.3 million, or 0.60% of total loans, at March 31, 2016.  Total nonaccrual loans amounted to $17.2 million, or 0.56% of total loans, at June 30, 2016, compared to $17.4 million, or 0.57% of total loans, at March 31, 2016.

    A loan loss provision totaling $450 thousand was charged to earnings in the second quarter of 2016, compared to a loan loss provision of $500 thousand recognized in the first quarter of 2016.  The loan loss provision was based on management’s assessment of loss exposure, as well as loan loss allocations commensurate with changes in the loan portfolio during the quarter.  Net charge-offs amounted to $761 thousand in the second quarter of 2016 and included a $737 thousand charge-off associated with one commercial and industrial relationship.  A substantial portion of the loss exposure associated with this charge-off was recognized as of March 31, 2016.  The allowance for loan losses was $25.8 million, or 0.84% of total loans, at June 30, 2016, compared to $26.1 million, or 0.86% of total loans, at March 31, 2016. 

    Capital and Dividends
    Total shareholder's equity was $388 million at June 30, 2016, up by $7 million from March 31, 2016.  Capital levels at June 30, 2016 exceeded the regulatory minimum levels to be considered well capitalized, with a total risk-based capital ratio of 12.43% at June 30, 2016, compared to 12.45% at March 31, 2016.  At June 30, 2016, book value per share amounted to $22.73, up from $22.40 in the prior quarter.

    The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of 36 cents per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.  The dividend was paid on July 14, 2016 to shareholders of record on July 1, 2016.

    This press release contains statements that are “forward-looking statements”.  We may also make forward-looking statements in other documents we file with the SEC, in press releases and other written materials, and in oral statements made by our officers, directors or employees.  You can identify forward-looking statements by the use of the words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “assume,” “outlook,” “will,” “should,” and other expressions that predict or indicate future events and trends and which do not relate to historical matters.  You should not rely on forward-looking statements, because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond the control of Washington Trust.  These risks, uncertainties and other factors may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Washington Trust to be materially different from the anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

    Some of the factors that might cause these differences include the following: weakness in national, regional or international economic conditions or conditions affecting the banking or financial services industries or financial capital markets; volatility in national and international financial markets; additional government intervention in the U.S. financial system; reductions in net interest income resulting from interest rate volatility as well as changes in the balance and mix of loans and deposits; reductions in the market value of wealth management assets under administration; changes in the value of securities and other assets; reductions in loan demand; changes in loan collectibility, default and charge-off rates; changes in the size and nature of the our competition; changes in legislation or regulation and accounting principles, policies and guidelines; and changes in the assumptions used in making such forward-looking statements. In addition, the factors described under “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, as updated by our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other filings submitted to the SEC, may result in these differences. You should carefully review all of these factors and you should be aware that there may be other factors that could cause these differences.

    Supplemental Information - Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
    In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures.  Washington Trust's management believes that the supplemental non-GAAP information, which consists of measurements and ratios based on tangible equity and tangible assets, is utilized by regulators and market analysts to evaluate a company's financial condition and therefore, such information is useful to investors.  These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures which may be presented by other companies.  Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.
