FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

QNB CORP. REPORTS

EARNINGS FOR FIRST QUARTER 2020

 

 

QUAKERTOWN, PA (April 28, 2020) QNB Corp. (the “Company” or “QNB”) (OTC Bulletin Board: QNBC), the parent company of QNB Bank, reported net income for the first quarter of 2020 of $220,000, or $0.06 per share on a diluted basis, compared to net income of $3,379,000, or $0.97 per share on a diluted basis, for the same period in 2019.

 

The reduction in net income and earnings per share, when comparing the two periods, is primarily due to a non-cash charge to non-interest income, a result of the decline in fair value of the equity securities portfolio held at by QNB Corp, our bank holding company.  The following table presents disaggregated net income:

Total assets as of March 31, 2020 were $1,232,010,000 compared with $1,225,023,000 at December 31, 2019. Loans receivable at March 31, 2020 were $821,283,000 compared with $820,616,000 at December 31, 2019, an increase of $667,000, or 0.10%.  Total deposits at March 31, 2020 were $1,043,521,000, increasing $5,661,000, or 0.50%, compared with $1,037,860,000 at December 31, 2019.

 

“Our core banking business performed well during the first quarter 2020.  Loan growth slowed, but the deposit and household growth we saw in 2019 was sustained during first quarter 2020”, stated David W. Freeman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While asset quality remains strong, we recorded additional loan loss provision, due to the decline in economic activity resulting from the economic crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

 

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 totaled $9,163,000, an increase of $327,000 from the same period in 2019. The net interest margin was 3.18% for the first quarter of 2020 and 2019.  The yield on earning assets was 3.92% for the first quarter 2020, a decrease of 12 basis points from 4.04% in the first quarter of 2019. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 14 basis

 


 

points to 0.92% for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared with 1.06% for the same period in 2019.

 

Asset Quality, Provision for Loan Loss and Allowance for Loan Loss

QNB recorded a $500,000 provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2020 compared with $225,000 in the first quarter 2019.  QNB's allowance for loan losses of $10,334,000 represents 1.26% of loans receivable at March 31, 2020 compared to $9,887,000, or 1.20% of loans receivable at December 31, 2019, and $9,015,000, or 1.12% of loans receivable at March 31, 2019. Net loan charge-offs were $53,000 for the first quarter of 2020, or 0.03% annualized of total average loans, compared with of $44,000, or 0.02% for the first quarter of 2019.

 

Total non-performing loans, which represent loans on non-accrual status, loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing interest and restructured loans were $15,861,000, or 1.93% of loans receivable at March 31, 2020, compared with $16,464,000, or 2.01% of loans receivable at December 31, 2019, and $9,753,000, or 1.21% of loans receivable at March 31, 2019. In cases where there is a collateral shortfall on impaired loans, specific impairment reserves have been established based on updated collateral values even if the borrower continues to pay in accordance with the terms of the agreement.  At March 31, 2020, $4,172,000, or approximately 37% of the loans classified as non-accrual are current or past due less than 30 days.    At March 31, 2020, commercial substandard or doubtful loans totaled  $15,173,000, a decrease of $749,000 from the $15,922,000 reported at December 31, 2019 and an increase of $452,000, from the $14,721,000 reported at March 31, 2019.

 

Non-Interest Income

Total non-interest loss was ($1,571,000) for the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of $3,880,000 compared with the same period in 2019, due primarily to a  decrease in the fair value of the equity securities portfolio, when comparing the two periods. The equities portfolio comprises blue-chip large-capitalized stocks, providing a taxable equivalent dividend yield of 3.26%.   The performance of the portfolio during the first quarter of 2020 is commensurate with the overall performance of the U.S. stock market.  The unrealized loss in the portfolio was $2,940,000 at March 31, 2020, compared with an unrealized gain of $976,000 at March 31, 2019. The estimated cumulative contribution (realized and unrealized net gains, plus dividends) of the equities portfolio to earnings per share from January 1, 2008 through March 31, 2020 is $1.10 per share.

 

Excluding the change in fair value of equities, net interest income increased $36,000, or 2.7% when comparing the two periods.  Increases in non-interest income comprise; fees for services to customers, ATM and debit card income, and net gain on sale of loans, which increased $18,000, $18,000, and $60,000, respectively, in first quarter 2020 compared with the same period in 2019.

 

Retail brokerage and advisory income and net gain on sale of securities decreased $28,000 and $6,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods. Other fee income decreases include $12,000 recorded for the broker-dealer conversion cost reimbursement, $12,000 in check sales to depositors and $9,000 in mortgage servicing fees.

 

 

 

 


 

 

Non-Interest Expense

Total non-interest expense was $7,278,000 for the first quarter of 2020, increasing $554,000, or 8.2% from $6,724,000  for the same period in 2019.  Salaries and benefits expense increased $291,000, or 7.7%, to $4,072,000 when comparing the two quarters.  Salary expense and related payroll taxes increased $305,000, or 9.8%, to $3,431,000 during the first quarter 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.  Medical premiums and post-retirement life insurance benefit expense decreased $26,000 and $26,000, respectively, while retirement plan expense increased $34,000 during the same period.   Net occupancy and furniture and equipment expense increased $136,000, or 12.8%, to $1,198,000 for the first quarter 2020, due primarily to increased depreciation of building and equipment of $69,000 and increased premises and equipment leasing expense totaling $46,000, when compared to first quarter 2019, as QNB’s newest Allentown location was not opened until third quarter and the Upper Perkiomen Branch had not yet relocated until fourth quarter 2019. Other non-interest expense increased $127,000, or 6.8%, when comparing first quarter 2020 with first quarter 2019, due to an increase in marketing expense and bank share taxes of $85,000 and $72,000.

 

Income tax benefit was $406,000 in the first quarter 2020, compared to a provision of $817,000 in the first quarter 2019 due to decreased pre-tax income.
