TrustCo Announces Strong Second Quarter Earnings; Up 20.9% Over Prior Year

GLENVILLE, N.Y., July 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TrustCo Bank Corp NY(TrustCo) (Nasdaq:TRST) today announced that net income rose to $11.8 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2014, up 20.9% from $9.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Robert J. McCormick, President and Chief Executive Officer noted, "Our results for the second quarter of 2014 continued our solid bottom line growth and positioning our business for the future. In addition to the significant increase in net income, we continued to add profitable customer relationships on both the loan and deposit sides of the Bank. Our highly liquid balance sheet continues to allow us to fund our loan growth without having to overpay for deposits. The Company had a strong first half of 2014 and we look forward to the remainder of the year with optimism. We will continue taking advantage of opportunities as they are presented."

TrustCo saw continued strong loan growth in the second quarter of 2014. The gains were primarily funded by continued expansion of retail deposits as well as proceeds from cash flow from the lower yielding investment securities portfolio. The shift toward loans helped offset part of the impact from continued low yields on cash and securities and contributed to an improvement in net interest margin to 3.16% in the second quarter from 3.13% in the first quarter of 2014 and 3.10% in the second quarter of 2013. Our strong liquidity position continues to be available to allow us to take advantage of opportunities when interest rate conditions change. The increase in margin, along with control of operating expenses and gains on the sale of ORE enabled the Company to achieve bottom line objectives without having to deploy liquidity into the current low rate investment environment.

Mr. McCormick also noted, "We are encouraged by the continued economic improvements where we operate, particularly Florida, and believe we are well positioned to capitalize on these changes. Our long-term focus on traditional lending criteria and conservative balance sheet management has enabled us to maintain strong liquidity and capital and report continued profit improvements. As a result, we have been able to focus on conducting business, which has significantly enhanced our reputation and put us in a position to take advantage of changes in market and competitive conditions."

Return on average assets and return on average equity were 1.03% and 12.50%, respectively for the second quarter of 2014, compared to 0.88% and 10.83% for the second quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per share were $0.125 for the second quarter of 2014, up 20.2% from $0.104 for the second quarter of 2013.

For the first half of 2014, return on average assets and return on average equity were 1.01% and 12.30%, respectively, compared to 0.87% and 10.60% for the first half of 2013. Diluted earnings per share were $0.241 for the first half of 2014, up 19.9% from $0.201 over the same period a year earlier.

On a year-over-year basis, average loans were up $238.8 million or 8.7% in the second quarter of 2014, over the same period in 2013. Average deposits were up $116.1 million for the second quarter of 2014 over the same period a year earlier. Most of the gain in deposits came from core deposit accounts, customers also continued to move some funds into certificates with slightly longer maturities, which may help TrustCo if rates rise, without having a material impact on the current cost of funds. Average core deposits rose $91.7 million from Q2 2013 to Q2 2014. Core deposits typically represent longer term customer relationships and are generally lower cost than time deposits. Mr. McCormick noted that, "The year-over-year growth of our loans and core deposit base reflect the long term strategic focus of the Company.

While some banks have backed away from branches, a customer friendly branch franchise continues to be the key to our long term plans. We opened our 140th and 141st offices, in Stuart, Florida and Warrensburg, New York, during the second quarter. During 2013 we celebrated the ten year anniversary of our expansion into Florida, while at the same time making significant progress expanding loans and deposits throughout our branch network. We expect that trend to continue as the new branches continue to mature. At June 30, 2014, our average branch had $28.3 million of deposits, up $125 thousand compared to the prior year, despite having opened up three branches during that time frame. We have always designed our branches to be smaller, more cost effective than those built by many of our competitors. We use open floor plans that help maximize the value of our branches. We remain mindful that fully achieving our goals for newer branches will take time and continued work. We believe success in growing customer relationships provides the basic building blocks that help drive profit growth for the coming years."

Asset quality, the allowance for loan losses coverage of nonperforming loans (NPLs) and net charge-offs all improved from June 30, 2013 to June 30, 2014. NPLs declined to $40.9 million at June 30, 2014, compared to $43.4 million at June 30, 2013 and nonperforming assets (NPAs) declined to $49.2 million from $53.8 million over the same period.  NPLs were equal to 1.36% of total loans at June 30, 2014, compared to 1.57% a year earlier. The coverage ratio, or allowance for loan losses to NPLs, was 114.7% at June 30, 2014, compared to 109.5% at June 30, 2013. Overall, virtually every asset quality indicator improved during the second quarter of 2014 relative to the second quarter of 2013. The ratio of loan loss allowance to total loans was 1.56% as of June 30, 2014, compared to 1.72% at June 30, 2013. This decline was due primarily to new loan growth and improved economic conditions over the last year. The allowance for loan losses ended the second quarter at $46.9 million compared to $47.0 million at the end of the first quarter.

The net interest margin for the second quarter of 2014 was 3.16%, compared to 3.10% in the second quarter of 2013, as noted. Included in second quarter of 2014 results was a gain of $2.4 million on the previously disclosed sale of owned real estate. This gain is included in the "Other real estate (income) expense, net" line on the Consolidated Statement of Income. Second quarter results also reflect the sale of approximately $1.8 million of NPAs to a third party at a gain of $164 thousand, included in "Other" noninterest income. Property tax expense of $151 thousand associated with the sold assets was recorded during the quarter and is included in "Other" noninterest expense.

At June 30, 2014 the tangible equity ratio was 8.38% compared to 8.11% at March 31, 2014 and 7.83% at June 30, 2013. Tangible book value per share ended the second quarter at $4.06 compared to $3.69 in the year-ago period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation

Tangible book value per share and tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate tangible equity and tangible assets by excluding the balance of intangible assets from shareholders' equity and total assets, respectively. We calculate tangible book value per share by dividing tangible equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which we calculate by dividing shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. We calculate tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end by dividing tangible equity by tangible assets at period end. We believe that this is consistent with the treatment by bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios. 

The efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP measure of expense control relative to recurring revenue. We calculate the efficiency ratio by dividing total noninterest expenses as determined under GAAP, but excluding other real estate expense, net, which we refer to below as recurring expense, by net interest income (fully taxable equivalent) and total noninterest income as determined under GAAP, but excluding net gains on securities from this calculation, which we refer to below as recurring revenue. We believe that this provides one reasonable measure of core expenses relative to core revenue. 

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is important to investors and that is useful in understanding our financial position, results and ratios. Our management internally assesses our performance based, in part, on these measures. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures. As other companies may use different calculations for these measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures reported by other companies. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures of tangible common equity, tangible book value per share and efficiency ratio to the underlying GAAP numbers is set forth below.
