Jeffrey A. Stopko, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the 2020 first quarter financial results: "AmeriServ Financial Inc. reported sound earnings in the first quarter of 2020 while taking the necessary actions to begin to position our Company for the economic uncertainty created by the coronavirus pandemic.  We are entering the second quarter of 2020 with strong liquidity, good capital and an increased allowance for loan losses.  However, I am most proud of how the AmeriServ team has stepped up and worked tirelessly with customers to provide them with resources to address the financial challenges that they are experiencing as a result of the pandemic.  Specifically, in regards to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), we have received approval from the Small Business Administration (SBA) for more than 250 loans totaling over $43 million which will fund in the second quarter and provide meaningful financial support to the small businesses in the communities in which we operate. We have also prudently executed numerous loan modifications and payment deferrals for our existing loan customers which will give them some financial flexibility during a period in which their business has been negatively impacted by the shutdown of the economy.”  


The Company's net interest income in the first quarter of 2020 increased by $94,000, or 1.1%, from the prior year's first quarter.  The Company’s net interest margin of 3.21% for the first quarter of 2020 was three basis points lower than the net interest margin of 3.24% for the first quarter of 2019.  The change in the U.S. Treasury yield curve between years impacted the Company’s net interest margin. The overall U.S. Treasury yield curve shifted downward since last year while the shape of the curve remained relatively flat, demonstrating inversion in certain segments at various times during the first quarter of 2020.  Late in the quarter, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic caused the yield curve to move down further.  Correspondingly, the Federal Reserve’s actions to lower the fed funds rate by 150 basis points in March, caused the short end of the yield curve to decrease and result in the curve exhibiting a more normal steeper shape.  Total earning assets increased in the first quarter of 2020 and partially offset the unfavorable impact that the lower level of national interest rates had on total interest income.  The increase in total average earning assets was due to growth in total loans and short-term investments while total investment securities decreased.  Interest bearing deposits increased and resulted in less reliance on higher cost borrowed funds.  Effective management of our funding costs along with the downward repricing of certain interest bearing liabilities tied to market indexes resulted in total interest expense decreasing between years.  The decrease to total interest expense more than offset the decrease in total interest income resulting in net interest income increasing between years.


Total loans averaged $877 million in the first quarter of 2020 which was $16.9 million, or 2.0%, higher than the $860 million average for the first quarter of 2019.  The impact from the strong level of loan production in 2019 was still evident in the increased total loan portfolio average balance during the first quarter of 2020.  Also, residential mortgage loan production in the first quarter of 2020 nearly tripled the level of production experienced during the first quarter of 2019 due to the significantly lower level of national interest rates.  However, loan payoff activity exceeded total new loan originations in the first quarter of 2020 resulting in a $10 million decline in the total loan portfolio balance since December 31, 2019.  Even though total average loans increased compared to the same period last year, loan interest and fee income decreased by $86,000, or 0.8%, between the first quarter of 2020 and last year’s first quarter.  The lower loan interest income reflects the impact of the lower interest rate environment as new loans originated at lower yields and certain loans tied to LIBOR or the prime rate repriced downward as both of these indices have moved down with the Federal Reserve’s decision to decrease the target federal funds interest rate three times in the second half of 2019, and more significantly, twice in March of this year.  


Total investment securities averaged $189 million in the first quarter of 2020 which is $9.5 million, or 4.8%, lower than the $198 million average for the first quarter of 2019. Investment security purchases in 2020 have been more selective as the market is less favorable for purchasing activity given the difference in the position and shape of the U.S. Treasury yield curve from the prior year.  The limited level of purchases that did occur during the first quarter of 2020 primarily focused on federal agency mortgage backed securities due to the ongoing cash flow that these securities provide.  Purchases also included high quality corporate and taxable municipal securities.  The Company also responded to the uncertain economic environment by maintaining a strong liquidity position as average short-term investments in money market funds increased by $9.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. Interest income on investments decreased between the first quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2019 by $134,000, or 7.7%.  Overall, total interest income decreased by $220,000, or 1.8%, between years.


Total interest expense for the first quarter of 2020 decreased by $314,000, or 9.0%, when compared to 2019, due to lower levels of both deposit and borrowing interest expense.  Deposit interest expense in 2020 was lower by $272,000, or 10.0%.  Overall, the Company’s loyal core deposit base continues to be a source of strength for the Company during periods of market volatility. Total average deposits grew since the first quarter of 2019 and totaled $983 million in the first quarter of 2020 which was $13.8 million, or 1.4%, higher than the 2019 first quarter average. This represents the fourth consecutive quarter that total deposits have averaged in a relatively narrow range of $980 to $985 million.  Management prudently and effectively executed several deposit product pricing decreases given the declining interest rate environment and the corresponding downward pressure that these falling interest rates have on the net interest margin. As a result, the Company experienced deposit cost relief.  Specifically, the Company’s average cost of interest bearing deposits declined by 17 basis points between the first quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2019.  The Company's loan to deposit ratio averaged 89.2% in the first quarter of 2020 which we believe indicates that the Company has ample capacity to grow its loan portfolio and is positioned well to assist our customers and the community given the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the economy.


The Company experienced a $42,000, or 5.4%, decrease in the interest cost of borrowings in the first quarter of 2020 when compared to the first quarter of 2019.  The decline is a result of lower total average borrowings between years combined with the impact from the Federal Reserve’s actions to decrease interest rates since the middle of 2019 and the impact that these rate decreases had on the cost of overnight borrowed funds and the replacement of matured FHLB term advances.  The total 2020 first quarter average term advance borrowings balance increased by approximately $8.3 million, or 17.7%, when compared to the first quarter of 2019 as the Company took advantage of yield curve inversions to prudently extend borrowings.  As a result, the combined growth of average FHLB term advances and total average deposits resulted in total average overnight borrowed funds decreasing between years by $12.5 million, or 81.1%. Overall, the 2020 first quarter average of FHLB borrowed funds was $58.2 million, which represents a decrease of $4.2 million, or 6.7%.  


The Company recorded a $175,000 provision expense for loan losses in the first quarter of 2020 as compared to a $400,000 provision recovery recorded in the first quarter of 2019, which represents a net unfavorable shift of $575,000.  The 2020 provision reflects the loan growth experienced since last year along with our decision to strengthen certain qualitative factors within our allowance for loan losses calculation due to the economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company’s current asset quality remains strong as evidenced by low levels of loan delinquency, net loan charge-offs and non-performing assets.  The Company experienced net loan charge-offs of $120,000, or 0.06% of total loans, in the 2020 first quarter compared to net loan charge-offs of $164,000, or 0.08% of total loans, in the first quarter of 2019.  Non-performing assets totaled $2.2 million, or only 0.26% of total loans, at March 31, 2020.  In summary, the allowance for loan losses provided 416% coverage of non-performing assets, and 1.06% of total loans, at March 31, 2020, compared to 397% coverage of non-performing assets, and 1.05% of total loans, at December 31, 2019.


Total non-interest income in the first quarter of 2020 increased by $227,000, or 6.3%, from the prior year's first quarter.  Income from residential mortgage loan sales into the secondary market increased by $175,000, or 282.3%, due to the strong level of residential mortgage loan production in the first quarter of 2020.  The higher level of residential mortgage loan production also resulted in mortgage related fees increasing by $82,000, or 186.4%.  Wealth management fees increased by $158,000, or 6.6%, due to an improved equity market which positively impacted market values for assets under management in the first two months of the first quarter of 2020.  The late first quarter 2020 negative impact to the equity market from the COVID-19 pandemic and the pandemic’s impact on the Company’s wealth management fees will be more evident in this year’s second quarter financial results.  Other income declined by $161,000, or 24.2%, after the Company recognized a gain in 2019 on the sale of equity shares from a previous acquisition.    


The Company's total non-interest expense in the first quarter of 2020 increased by $340,000, or 3.3%, when compared to the first quarter of 2019.  The increase was due to higher salaries & benefits expense of $403,000, or 6.4%, and increased occupancy & equipment costs of $47,000, or 4.6%.  These increases more than offset reductions to other expense of $90,000, or 5.1%, and FDIC deposit insurance expense of $54,000, or 67.5%.  Within salaries & benefits, pension expense increased by $188,000, or 53.0% between years.  This significant increase results from the unfavorable impact that the lower interest rate environment has on the discount rates that are used to revalue the defined benefit pension obligation each year.  In addition, the higher salaries & benefits expense is also due to increased health care costs, greater incentive compensation as a result of increased residential mortgage loan production, and increased salaries expense.  The higher salaries expense reflects annual merit increases and the addition of several employees to address management succession planning.  The greater level of occupancy & equipment expenses since last year resulted largely from higher depreciation costs.  The decrease to other expense resulted from the Company recognizing a reduction in the unfunded commitment reserve while the lower FDIC deposit insurance expense was due to the Company applying the remaining portion of the credit from the application of the Small Bank Assessment Credit regulation.  Finally, the Company recorded an income tax expense of $366,000, or an effective tax rate of 20.6%, in the first quarter of 2020.  This compares to an income tax expense of $491,000, or an effective tax rate of 20.7%, for the first quarter of 2019.  


The Company had total assets of $1.17 billion, shareholders' equity of $100.8 million, a book value of $5.92 per common share and a tangible book value(1) of $5.22 per common share at March 31, 2020.  In accordance with the common stock buyback program announced on April 16, 2019, the Company returned an additional $151,000 of capital to its shareholders through the repurchase of 35,962 shares of its common stock in the first quarter of 2020 to complete this program.  The Company continued to maintain strong capital ratios that exceed the regulatory defined well capitalized status.


QUARTERLY COMMON STOCK CASH DIVIDEND


The Company’s Board of Directors declared a $0.025 per share quarterly common stock cash dividend.  The cash dividend is payable May 18, 2020 to shareholders of record on May 4, 2020.  This cash dividend represents a 3.6% annualized yield using the April 17, 2020 closing stock price of $2.76.  For the first quarter of 2020, the Company’s dividend payout ratio amounted to 31.3%.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

RETURN ON AVERAGE TANGIBLE COMMON EQUITY, TANGIBLE COMMON EQUITY RATIO AND TANGIBLE BOOK VALUE PER SHARE

(Dollars in thousands, except per share and ratio data)

(Unaudited)


The press release contains certain financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting policies in the United States (GAAP).  These non-GAAP financial measures are “return on average tangible common equity”, "tangible common equity ratio" and "tangible book value per share."  This non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.  Our management uses these non-GAAP measures in its analysis of our performance because it believes these measures are material and will be used as a measure of our performance by investors.
