Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. Announces Improvement in Asset Quality and Return to Profitability in the Fourth Quarter

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: ORRF), the parent company of Orrstown Bank (the "Bank"), announced today a return to profitability in the fourth quarter with net income of $1.03 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to a net loss posted for the fourth quarter of 2011 of $29.5 million.   For the year ended December 31, 2012, a net loss of $38.5 million was recorded compared to $32.0 million for the year ended 2011.  Included in both 2012 and 2011's results are significant non-cash charges, including the recording of a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets totaling $20.2 million in 2012 and a full goodwill impairment charge of $19.0 million, net of tax, recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Diluted earnings (loss) per share amounted to $0.13 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, as compared to ($3.66) for the fourth quarter of 2011.  For the year ended December 31, 2012, diluted loss per share amounted to ($4.77) compared to ($3.98) in 2011.  The aforementioned valuation allowance on the deferred tax asset and goodwill impairment charge reduced diluted earnings per share by $2.51 and $2.37, respectively, for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. 

Thomas R. Quinn, Jr., President  & CEO, commented, "The unwavering commitment of our Board of Directors and new management team have been critical factors in our return to profitability.  In 2012 we made meaningful investments and enhancements to ensure that our Company is better positioned for these uncertain times."

Quinn continued, "We made many strategic decisions in 2012 to position the Bank well for the future. Our asset quality metrics are more comparable to pre-crisis levels and our capital levels are solidly above well capitalized. We have added depth and expertise to the management team and are well positioned to execute on our strategic growth plans across all business lines while continuously working to meet the expectations of our shareholders, customers, and the communities we serve."

OPERATING RESULTS

Net Interest Income

Net interest income totaled $8.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, a $3.1 million, or 26.9%, decrease compared to the $11.6 million earned in the same period in 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, net interest income totaled $37.9 million, a decrease of $11.7 million from the $49.6 million earned in 2011. The decline in net interest income is a result of both a decline in the average interest rate earned as well as a decrease in the volume of interest earning assets. Net interest margin for the three months ended December 31, 2012, was 3.00%, compared to 3.45% for the same period in 2011. On a year-to-date basis, 2012's net interest margin was 3.12% compared to 3.66% in 2011. The increase in the average level of loans on nonaccrual status, combined with the low interest rate environment in which proceeds from asset sales and maturities have been reinvested, has put pressure on the Company's net interest margin.  Also contributing to the decrease in net interest income was the $148 million decline in average interest earning assets to $1.285 billion for the year ended December 31, 2012 from an average of $1.433 billion in 2011.  During the past year, the Company has been able to effectively manage its cost of funds, which declined to 0.59% for the year ended December 31, 2012, an improvement over the cost of funds of 0.75% for the same period in 2011.   

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses for the three months ended December 31, 2012, totaled $1.0 million, a decrease of $25.3 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2011's provision of $26.3 million and a decrease of $4.1 million when compared to the third quarter of 2012's provision of $5.1 million. On a year-to-date basis, the provision for loan losses was $48.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $58.6 million in 2011. The Company's net charge offs during the year ended December 31, 2012 were $68.8 million, compared to $30.9 million in 2011.

See further discussion in the "Asset Quality" section below. 

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income, excluding securities gains, totaled $5.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared to $4.4 million for the same period in 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, noninterest income, excluding securities gains, totaled $18.4 million, compared to $20.4 million in 2011.

The Company sold its merchant processing business in the third quarter of 2011, which contributed $1.9 million in revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011, including the recognition of a gain of $995 thousand. In 2012, income recognized on merchant services consisted of amounts previously held back as gain until all conditions of the sales contract were satisfied.  Noninterest income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 was favorably influenced by the sale of interest rate swaps of $791 thousand, with no similar gains occurring in 2012.  

In 2012, two of the Company's non-margin lines of business posted significant increases in revenues. Mortgage banking revenue was favorably influenced by the continued low interest rate environment, coupled with greater stability in the real estate market.  For the three months ended December 31, 2012 mortgage banking revenues totaled $1.3 million, an increase of 67.1% over the same period in the prior year.  On a year to date basis, mortgage banking revenues totaled $3.4 million, a 12.8% increase over 2011.  Orrstown Financial Advisors, which generates trust and brokerage income, recorded revenues of $1.6 million and $6.1 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 8.3% and 4.6% over the same periods in 2011.  Favorable market conditions, combined with new business opportunities led to the enhanced revenue stream.   

Securities gains totaled $0 and $4.8 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, respectively, compared to $3.0 million and $6.2 million for the same periods in 2011.  Asset/liability management strategies, interest rate conditions, as well as maintaining capital levels factored into the decision as to the extent and timing of security gains taken in the periods.    

Noninterest expenses

Noninterest expenses amounted to $10.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $30.5 million for the corresponding prior year period, a decrease of $19.9 million, or 65.2%. Noninterest expenses totaled $43.3 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $17.1 million compared to the year ended 2011.  In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company recorded a $19.5 million impairment charge on its goodwill and is the primary reason for the fluctuation in both the quarter and year to date periods. 

Excluding the impact of the $19.5 million goodwill impairment charge, noninterest expenses declined $439 thousand from $11.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011 to $10.6 million for the same period in 2012.  During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company began to experience lower expenses related to collection, problem loan and real estate expenses, as improvements were noted in asset quality and the number of problem loans began to decline.  In contrast, in the fourth quarter of 2011 numerous appraisals were ordered and other collection related expenses incurred, as the Company was in the process of assessing the extent of impairment in its loan portfolio.   On a year-to-date basis, asset quality and regulatory matters have contributed significantly to the increase in noninterest expenses due to the aggressive nature in which the Company was addressing its asset quality issues.  The additions to staff in the Special Asset and Credit Administration departments was the primary reason for the $2.4 million increase in salaries and employee benefits, from $17.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 to $19.9 million in the current year period.  Collection and problem loan expenses totaled $2.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $1.2 million in the same period in 2011.  Real estate owned expenses, which include write-downs of properties to fair value less costs to dispose, totaled $834 thousand in 2012 compared to $681 thousand in 2011. 

As a result of the increase in noninterest expense (net of goodwill impairment), combined with declining net interest income, the Company's efficiency ratio for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased to 72.2%, compared to 55.2% reported in the same period in 2011. The efficiency ratio expresses noninterest expense as a percentage of tax equivalent net interest income and noninterest income, excluding securities gains.  The Company anticipates the efficiency ratio will remain slightly elevated as it addresses regulatory matters and remaining asset quality issues. 

Income Taxes

During the year ended December 31, 2012, an evaluation was completed on the net deferred tax asset that existed, which principally resulted from credit and credit related losses and expenses that the Company has recently experienced.  As a result of the taxable losses that have been generated during 2012, and our inability to fully offset the tax to the two preceding carryback years allowed by tax regulation, our net deferred tax asset is dependent on tax planning strategies and future taxable income.  Based on forecasted taxable income in the near future, combined with limited tax planning strategies, we were not able to conclude that the deferred tax asset would more likely than not be realized in its entirety, and as such, a valuation allowance was established for the full amount.   The valuation allowance of $20.3 million established in 2012 represents a non-cash charge to income tax expense, the majority of which was recorded in the third quarter of 2012, and will be recoverable in future years as the Company returns to profitability.  As a result of the valuation allowance, the Company recorded income tax expense of $8.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, despite a pre-tax loss for the year, as compared to the income tax benefit recorded for the year ended December 31, 2011 of $10.9 million.  For the three months ended December 31, 2012, income tax expense resulted from AMT credit carry forwards that were generated, which were fully reserved for at year-end. 

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Assets decreased $211.4 million to $1.233 billion at December 31, 2012 from December 31, 2011.  During 2012, the Company had implemented a strategy designed to slow loan growth and reduce its risk weighted asset levels in order to maintain capital ratios at levels that exceed well capitalized limits.  Much of the reduction in the balance sheet was in the Company's loan portfolio.  At December 31, 2012, loans, net of the allowance for loan losses, have declined by $235.8 million, or 25.5%, from December 31, 2011, with the net payoffs temporarily invested in interest bearing deposits with banks.

The decline in deposits of $131.9 million as of December 31, 2012 compared to December 31, 2011 is also part of the balance sheet deleveraging strategy designed to focus on core deposits and reduce levels of wholesale and institutional deposits.

Shareholders' Equity                              

Shareholders' equity totaled $87.7 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $40.5 million, or 31.6%, from $128.2 million at December 31, 2011. This decrease was primarily the result of the net loss posted for the year coupled with a decline in accumulated other comprehensive income.  Despite the decline in shareholders' equity, the Company's regulatory capital ratios continue to exceed all regulatory minimums to be considered well capitalized.  At December 31, 2012 the Company's regulatory capital ratios consisted of a Tier-1 Leverage ratio of 6.8%, a Tier-1 Risk-based capital ratio of 10.9%, and a Total Risk-based capital ratio of 12.1%, an increase over September 30, 2012's ratios of 6.4%, 9.7% and 10.9%, respectively.  Net income recorded for the quarter combined with a reduction in assets resulted in the improved ratios. 

Asset Quality

As communicated in the past, a priority of the Company has been to work through its nonaccruing loans and other risk element assets, in an attempt to reduce the level of these underperforming assets.  The Company's focus on asset quality remediation, including loan workouts, additional structural enhancements, and multiples sales of non performing assets to third parties have driven significant improvement over year end 2011.   Most recently, the Company completed the sale of 172 commercial loans with a book balance of $45.6 million to an independent investor group.   Risk assets, defined as nonaccrual loans, restructured loans, loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing, and real estate owned, totaled $22.9 million at December 31, 2012, a 64.4% decrease from September 30, 2012's balance of $64.4 million and a 79.9% reduction from $113.8 million at December 31, 2011. 

The allowance for loan losses totaled $23.2 million at December 31, 2012, a $20.5 million decrease from December 2011.  As of December 31, 2012, the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 3.29% compared to 4.53% as of December 31, 2011.  Despite the lower allowance for loan losses balance, and lower ratio to outstanding loans, the allowance to loan losses coverage ratio of nonaccrual loans and restructured loans has increased substantially.  The allowance for loan losses to nonaccrual loans and restructured loans still accruing increased to 110% at December 31, 2012, from 60% at September 30, 2012 and 39% at December 31, 2011.  The increase in the coverage ratios reflect lower levels of risk assets, particularly the significant decrease in non-performing assets discussed above.

As a result of asset remediation efforts in 2012 and extensive loan reviews of non-classified assets, management believes that it has been able to significantly reduce the credit risk profile of the Company to one more comparable with peers. The allowance for loan losses is reflective of the improved risk profile.  In the fourth quarter of 2012, the provision for loan losses of $1.0 million was less than the $5.1 million recorded in the previous quarter, and $26.3 million in the same period in 2011. 

As new information is learned about borrowers or updated appraisals on real estate with lower fair values are obtained, the Company may continue to experience additional impaired loans.  Through increased human resources allocated to credit related issues, the Company believes it can continue to mitigate its risk of loss, and to reduce its level of nonaccrual and classified loans.

This release references tax-equivalent net interest income which is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Tax-equivalent net interest income is derived from GAAP interest income and net interest income using an assumed tax rate of 35%.  We believe the presentation of net interest income on a tax–equivalent basis ensures comparability of net interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources and is consistent with industry practice.

The following reconciles net interest income to net interest income on a fully taxable equivalent basis:
