  • Noninterest expenses decreased $853 thousand or 6.0% during the quarter.

Brandon Lorey, President and CEO, stated, “I am happy to report a strong finish to 2023, despite the ongoing challenges in the banking sector, with improvements across multiple segments. Core deposits grew by $5.8 million during the quarter with $5.7 million or 1.3% growth in noninterest bearing accounts as our retail and commercial bankers continued to deepen existing relationships and expand into our new markets. As a result of the sale of our niche marine division, non-interest expense decreased 6.0% during the quarter with a notable improvement in the Bank’s return on equity. Furthermore, the bank posted record non-interest income with its Wealth Management group adding over $1.3 million in income to the organization during 2023 coupled with record mortgage and SBA income. I would like to personally thank our phenomenal staff who always put our customers in the center of everything we do as we remain committed to our clients and communities.”

Income Statement Review

Total loan interest income was $19.4 million and $20.2 million for the quarters ended December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023, respectively. Total loan interest income was $15.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2022. Total loan interest income increased $4.3 million or 28.5% from the quarter ended December 31, 2022 to the quarter ended December 31, 2023. Average loans for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 were $1.45 billion compared to $1.26 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2022. The tax equivalent yield on average loans for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 was 5.32%, an increase of 54 basis points from the 4.78% average yield for the same time period in 2022. The decrease in loan interest income during the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to the third quarter of 2023 is mainly due to the decrease in the average loans outstanding during the period, partly related to the sale of the marine finance line of business during the third quarter of 2023. The majority of the increase compared to December 31, 2022 in yield can be attributed to the current rising interest rate environment.

Interest and dividend income from the investment portfolio was $932 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 compared to $931 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. Interest income and dividend income from the investment portfolio was $879 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2022. The tax equivalent yield on average investments for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 was 2.63%, up 15 basis points from 2.48% for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 and up 37 basis points from 2.26% for the quarter ended December 31, 2022.

Total interest expense was $9.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2023 and $9.3 million and $2.9 million for three months ended September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. The increase in interest expense resulted from increases on rates paid on deposit accounts and Federal Home Loan Bank advances entered into during 2022 and 2023 with varying interest rates and terms. The average cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased 11 and 184 basis points when comparing the quarter ended December 31, 2023 to the quarters ended September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. The average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased $13.3 million from the quarter ended September 30, 2023 to the quarter ended December 31, 2023. The average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased $327.0 million from the quarter ended December 31, 2022 to the same period in 2023. In addition to the growth in interest-bearing liabilities, there has been a shift in the mix of interest-bearing deposits towards higher interest-bearing deposits.

Net interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 was $12.3 million reflecting a decrease of 4.9% from the quarter ended September 30, 2023 and a decrease of 7.3% from the quarter ended December 31, 2022. Net interest income was $12.9 million and $13.3 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. The decrease in net interest income from the quarter ended December 31, 2022 resulted primarily from the significant increase in the cost of funds during the year.

Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 was $2.4 million reflecting an increase of 3.3% from the quarter ended September 30, 2023 and a decrease of 25.1% from the quarter ended December 31, 2022. The increase from the quarter ended September 30, 2023 was due to several factors that occurred in the third quarter including one-time overhead expenses related to the sale of the marine finance line of business partially offset by the gain related to the sale. The decrease in net income from the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was mainly driven by the increased funding costs for deposits and increased salaries and employee benefits expenses to hire and retain employees. While the beginning and ending number of FTEs remained fairly consistent from December 31, 2022 to December 31, 2023, salary and medical insurance costs have increased along with the salary impact of the employees that were a part of the marine finance line of business for the first eight months of 2023, as discussed below. Net income was $2.3 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2023 and $3.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2022.

The net interest margin was 2.85% for the quarter ended December 31, 2023. For the quarters ended September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the net interest margin was 2.93% and 3.68%, respectively. The Company’s net interest margin is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, but it is a common measure used by the financial services industry to determine how profitably earning assets are funded. The Company’s net interest margin is calculated by dividing tax equivalent net interest income by total average earning assets. Tax equivalent net interest income is calculated by grossing up interest income for the amounts that are non-taxable (i.e., municipal income) then subtracting interest expense. The tax rate utilized is 21%.

Noninterest income was $3.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2023, which represented a decrease of $556 thousand or 13.2% from the $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023. Noninterest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was $3.1 million. The decrease from the quarter ended September 30, 2023 was mainly due to the sale of the marine finance line of business, which resulted in a net gain of $463 thousand during the third quarter. The increase from the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was due to the growth of the wealth management division along with an increase in production of saleable mortgage loans which resulted in a higher gain on sale of loans held for sale.

Noninterest expense decreased $853 thousand, or 6.0%, to $13.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 from $14.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. Noninterest expense was $11.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2022, representing an increase of $1.7 million or 15.0% when comparing the quarter ended December 31, 2023 to the quarter ended December 31, 2022. An increase in salaries and benefits expenses was noted between December 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022. Annual pay increases, newly hired employees, incentive plan accruals and increased insurance costs have attributed to these increases. FTEs remained stable at 241 when comparing December 31, 2022 to December 31, 2023. FTE’s rose to 275 at June 30, 2023 prior to the sale of the marine finance line of business on August 23, 2023. While there was some reduction in overhead costs by having the marine finance line of business in operation only through August 2023, there was approximately $1.5 million in additional expense recognized during the third quarter due to its sale. These costs included a change in control agreement, accelerated deferred compensation expenses, legal costs and advisory firm expenses. The decrease in noninterest expense between the quarters ended September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2023 was largely related to these additional expenses from the sale. See below for further discussion regarding the sale of the marine finance line of business. An increase in FDIC assessment was also noted between the quarters ended December 31, 2023 and 2022. This increase is due to the growth in the Company, along with a two-basis point increase in the assessment rate charged by the FDIC. This increase in assessment rate applies to all financial institutions.

Asset Quality and Provision for Credit Losses

Nonperforming assets consist of nonaccrual loans, loans 90 days or more past due and still accruing, other real estate owned (foreclosed properties), and repossessed assets. Nonperforming assets increased from $6.0 million or 0.32% of total assets at September 30, 2023 to $6.1 million or 0.34% of total assets at December 31, 2023. Nonperforming assets were $2.4 million at December 31, 2022. Total nonaccrual loans were $5.7 million at December 31, 2023 and $5.7 million at September 30, 2023. Nonaccrual loans were $2.6 million at December 31, 2022. Nonperforming assets remained consistent between September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2023. Nonaccrual loans, and in turn nonperforming assets, increased during the year due mainly to two loan relationships, one residential real estate relationship totaling $1.1 million, and a non-owner occupied commercial real estate loan in the amount of $2.4 million. The majority of all nonaccrual loans are secured by real estate and management evaluates the financial condition of these borrowers and the value of any collateral on these loans. The results of these evaluations are used to estimate the amount of losses which may be realized on the disposition of these nonaccrual loans. Other real estate owned was $304 thousand at December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023 and zero at December 31, 2022.

The Company realized $383 thousand in net charge-offs for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 compared to $156 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2023. During the three months ended December 31, 2022, $454 thousand in net charge-offs were recognized.

Beginning January 1, 2023, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), which replaced the former “incurred loss” model for recognizing credit losses with an “expected loss” model referred to as the CECL model. The adoption of the CECL model resulted in a $2.1 million increase in the allowance for loan losses and a $406 thousand increase in other liabilities due to the allowance for credit losses on unfunded commitments. At adoption, we also recorded a corresponding $2.0 million after-tax decrease in retained earnings. Utilizing CECL may have an impact on our allowance for credit losses going forward and may result in a lack of comparability between 2023 and 2022 quarterly periods. The amount of provision for credit losses reflects the results of the Bank’s analysis used to determine the adequacy of the allowance for credit losses. The Company recorded $366 thousand in provision for credit loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 due mainly to the growth of the loan portfolio during the quarter. The Company recognized provision for credit losses of $216 thousand and provision for loan losses of $930 thousand for the quarters ended September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. The provision for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 resulted mostly from loan growth during the quarter. The provision for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was mainly needed to keep pace with strong loan growth.

The ratio of allowance for credit losses to total loans was 0.99% and 1.01% at December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023, respectively. The ratio of allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.85% at December 31, 2022. The increase in the ratio during 2023 is mainly attributable to the adoption of CECL. The ratio of allowance for credit losses to total nonaccrual loans was 256.74% and 255.80% at December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023, respectively. The ratio of allowance for loan losses to total nonaccrual loans was 518.86% at December 31, 2022. Management’s judgment in determining the level of the allowance is based on evaluations of the collectability of loans while taking into consideration such factors as trends in delinquencies and charge-offs, changes in the nature and volume of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions that may affect a borrower’s ability to repay and the value of collateral, overall portfolio quality and review of specific potential losses. The Company is committed to maintaining an allowance at a level that adequately reflects the risk inherent in the loan portfolio.

Balance Sheet

Total consolidated assets of the Company at December 31, 2023 were $1.83 billion, which represented an increase of $24.1 million or 1.34% from total assets of $1.80 billion at September 30, 2023. At December 31, 2022, total consolidated assets were $1.62 billion. The majority of the growth in consolidated assets during the quarter ended December 31, 2023 was due to the increase in net loans. The majority of loan growth during the quarter was in consumer real estate. The majority of growth in consolidated assets between December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2023 was due to increase in cash and cash equivalents along with the growth in net loans. The majority of loan growth during the year was in consumer real estate, followed closely by the increase in non-owner occupied commercial real estate.

Total cash and cash equivalents (including cash and due from banks and federal funds sold) decreased $3.7 million or 2.6% as of December 31, 2023, compared to September 30, 2023. Cash and cash equivalents decreased as a percentage of total assets to 7.6% in the fourth quarter as compared to 7.9% at September 30, 2023 and increased as compared to 4.1% at December 31, 2022. The year-over-year increase was due mainly to the growth of deposits in excess of the change in net loans which are discussed in further detail below.

At December 31, 2023, total securities available for sale were $147.0 million, an increase of $4.5 million from September 30, 2023, and a decrease of $11.4 million from December 31, 2022. At December 31, 2023, total net unrealized losses on the AFS securities portfolio were $22.8 million, a gain of $7.0 million from total net unrealized losses on AFS securities of $29.8 million at September 30, 2023 and a gain of $3.1 million from December 31, 2022.

Total net loans increased $21.8 million from $1.43 billion at September 30, 2023 to $1.45 billion at December 31, 2023. During the quarter ended December 31, 2023, through the normal course of business, $18.4 million in loans were sold. The Company sold $11.1 million in mortgage loans on the secondary market and $7.4 million of loans from the commercial and consumer loan portfolios. These loan sales resulted in net gains of $536 thousand. The decline from sold loans was offset completely by growth in loans largely due to organic loan portfolio growth as the Company expands lending types and markets.

On August 23, 2023, the Company completed the sale of its marine finance business, operating under the name LaVictoire Finance, to Axos Bank. Under the Asset Purchase Agreement, Axos Bank agreed to assume the servicing of Bank of Clarke’s retail marine loans and those of third parties, each of which were previously being serviced by Bank of Clarke. All LaVictoire Finance employees became employees of Axos Bank. Pursuant to the Loan Purchase Agreement, Axos Bank acquired all the marine vessel dealer floor plans loans currently held by Bank of Clarke at par value. The acquired loans had an aggregate principal balance of approximately $52.8 million as of the date of the Loan Purchase Agreement. All marine finance loans, with a balance of $251.2 million as of December 31, 2023, are still assets of Bank of Clarke.

Total deposits increased to $1.51 billion as of December 31, 2023 when compared to September 30, 2023 deposits of $1.50 billion. At December 31, 2022 total deposits were $1.26 billion. During the fourth quarter of 2023, the majority of growth in deposits was from core accounts, which include all transactional deposit accounts as well as certificates of deposits less than $250 thousand. Approximately $5.8 million of total deposit growth was core deposit growth as the Company continued to expand and grow into newer market areas. Non-core deposits increased by $2.2 million, attributable to increases in certificates of deposit accounts $250 thousand and greater. As interest rates have risen, the Company has noticed a shift in the mix of deposits away from non-interest bearing deposits and towards time deposits during 2023. However, during the fourth quarter of 2023, time deposits increased by $1.9 million or 0.5%, while non-interest bearing deposits have increased $5.7 million or 1.3%. Time deposits as a percentage of total deposits have increased from 12.5% at December 31, 2022 to 27.4% at December 31, 2023. Time deposits as a percentage of total deposits remain stable from 27.5% at September 30, 2023. The increase in time deposits between December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2023 is partially due to $30.0 million in brokered accounts that the Company entered into during the first quarter of 2023. At December 31, 2023, over 75% of deposits were fully FDIC insured.

The Company had $165.0 million and $145.0 million, respectively, in outstanding borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta at December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023. There was $175.0 million in outstanding borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank as of December 31, 2022. The average rate paid on Federal Home Loan Bank advances as of December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023 was 4.76% and 4.765%, respectively. These borrowings were used mainly to fund the strong loan growth that occurred during the past several quarters.

On March 31, 2022, the Company entered into Subordinated Note Purchase Agreements with certain qualified institutional buyers and accredited institutional investors, pursuant to which the Company issued 4.50% Fixed-to-Floating Rate Subordinated Notes due 2032, in the aggregate principal amount of $30.0 million.

Shareholders’ equity was $108.4 million and $101.2 million at December 31, 2023 and September 30, 2023, respectively. Shareholders’ equity was $101.7 million at December 31, 2022. Shareholders’ equity has been impacted by an accumulated other comprehensive loss related to securities available-for-sale. These unrealized losses are primarily a result of rapid increases in interest rates during 2022 and 2023. The book value of the Company at December 31, 2023 was $30.78 per common share. Total common shares outstanding were 3,520,894 at December 31, 2023. On January 24, 2024, the Board of Directors announced a quarterly common stock cash dividend of $0.30 per common share, payable on February 16, 2024, to shareholders of record on February 5, 2024.

The net interest margin is calculated by dividing tax equivalent net interest income by total average earning assets. Tax equivalent interest income is calculated by grossing up interest income for the amounts that are non-taxable (i.e., municipal income) then subtracting interest expense. The rate utilized is 21%. See the table below for the quarterly tax equivalent net interest income and the reconciliation of net interest income to tax equivalent net interest income. The Company’s net interest margin is a common measure used by the financial service industry to determine how profitable earning assets are funded. Because the Company earns a fair amount of nontaxable interest income due to the mix of securities in its investment security portfolio, net interest income for the ratio is calculated on a tax equivalent basis as described above.

(2)

The efficiency ratio is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. It is calculated by dividing non-interest expense by the sum of tax equivalent net interest income and non-interest income excluding gains and losses on the investment portfolio and sales of repossessed assets. The tax rate utilized is 21%. See the table below for the quarterly tax equivalent net interest income and a reconciliation of net interest income to tax equivalent net interest income. The Company calculates this ratio in order to evaluate its overhead structure or how effectively it is operating. An increase in the ratio from period to period indicates the Company is losing a larger percentage of its income to expenses. The Company believes that the efficiency ratio is a reasonable measure of profitability.

The diluted earnings multiple (or price earnings ratio) is calculated by dividing the period’s closing market price per share by total equity per weighted average shares outstanding, diluted for the period. The diluted earnings multiple is a measure of how much an investor may be willing to pay for $1.00 of the Company’s earnings.

(2)

The book value multiple (or price to book ratio) is calculated by dividing the period’s closing market price per share by the period’s book value per share. The book value multiple is a measure used to compare the Company’s market value per share to its book value per share.
