Lake Shore Bancorp, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2016 Earnings

DUNKIRK, N.Y., Oct. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lake Shore Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:LSBK), the holding company for Lake Shore Savings Bank (the “Bank”), announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.  Net income for third quarter 2016 was $757,000, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for third quarter 2015.   The decrease in net income was due to a $370,000 decrease in non-interest income, a $156,000 increase in non-interest expense and a $95,000 increase in provision for loan losses partially offset by a $75,000 decrease in income tax expense and a $67,000 increase in net interest income. Non-interest income decreased due to a $440,000 ($290,000 after-tax) gain on the sale of securities in the prior year third quarter while there were no sales of securities by the Company during the third quarter of 2016.  The $95,000 increase in the provision for loan losses was primarily from increased reserves set aside for new commercial loan originations. The Company earned net income of $3.4 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared to net income of $2.5 million, or $0.42 per diluted share for the same period in 2015. The 2016 year-to-date net income included a net increase of $790,000 in after-tax gains on the sale of securities when compared to the same period in 2015.

2016 Third Quarter and Nine-Month Highlights:

  • Total net loans increased 7.8% to $320.4 million at September 30, 2016 from $297.1 million at December 31, 2015 primarily due to organic commercial loan growth of 27.1%;
  • Core (non-time) deposits grew by $17.0 million, or 8.1%, from December 31, 2015;
  • Net interest margin was 3.46% for third quarter 2016, up seven basis points from third quarter 2015 and up five basis points from second quarter 2016; and
  • Interest expense in third quarter 2016 declined 14.7% compared to third quarter 2015, reflecting the Bank’s ongoing focus on lower cost core deposit growth.

Net Interest Income

Third quarter 2016 net interest income of $3.8 million increased $67,000, or 1.8% as compared to the 2015 third quarter.   Net interest income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 increased $316,000, or 2.9%, to $11.4 million from $11.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.  The improvement in net interest income was attributed to lower interest expense, partially offset by a decrease in interest income.

Interest expense for third quarter 2016 was $565,000, a decrease of $97,000, or 14.7%, from $662,000 in third quarter 2015, primarily as a result of a $19.0 million reduction in average time deposits, along with a nine basis points decline in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities when compared to the 2015 third quarter. Third quarter 2016 interest income of $4.4 million, decreased $30,000, or 0.7%, compared to the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of a $32.7 million decline in the average balance of the Bank’s securities portfolio, partially offset by a $21.3 million increase in the average balance of loans. The increase in the average loan balance was primarily due to an increase in loan originations for commercial real estate, commercial and home equity loans during the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $1.7 million, a decrease of $442,000, or 20.4%, from $2.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, primarily due to a $21.2 million reduction in average time deposits, along with a 13 basis points decline in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities when compared to the prior year period. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, interest income of $13.1 million decreased $126,000, or 1.0%, compared to the prior year nine month period, primarily as a result of a $31.8 million decline in the average balance of the Bank’s securities portfolio, partially offset by a $17.6 million increase in the average balance of loans. The increase in the average loan balance was primarily due to increased loan originations for commercial real estate and commercial loans during the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Non-Interest Income

Third quarter 2016 non-interest income decreased by $370,000, or 36.0%, to $658,000 compared to $1.0 million for the prior year third quarter. The decrease was primarily due to a $440,000 realized pre-tax gain on the sale of securities during the prior year third quarter. The decrease in non-interest income was partially offset by an increase in service charges and fees and gains on the sale of loans during the third quarter of 2016. Service charges and fees increased during the third quarter of 2016 by $55,000, or 13.6%, to $461,000 when compared to the third quarter of 2015. Additionally, the net gain on sale of loans increased during the third quarter of 2016 by $28,000, or 100.0%, to $56,000 when compared to the third quarter of 2015.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, non-interest income increased by $1.4 million, or 64.6%, to $3.5 million compared to $2.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The increase was primarily due to a $1.6 million realized pre-tax gain on the sale of securities during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to a $440,000 realized pre-tax gain during the same period in 2015. Additionally, service charges and fees increased during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 by $142,000, or 12.0%, to $1.3 million when compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015.   The net gain on the sale of loans during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $117,000, an increase of $44,000, or 60.3%, as compared to the prior year period.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense was $3.4 million for third quarter 2016, an increase of $156,000, or 4.8%, compared to third quarter 2015. The current year third quarter had higher expenses for salary and benefits, data processing and professional services which were partially offset by lower occupancy and equipment and advertising expenses. 

Non-interest expense was $10.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, an increase of $480,000, or 4.9%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Higher salary and benefit costs, advertising, professional services expenditures, data processing and other costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were partially offset by lower FDIC insurance and postage and supplies expenses when compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015. 

Asset Quality

The provision for loan losses for third quarter 2016 was $125,000, a $95,000 increase as compared to third quarter 2015. The provision for loan losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $310,000, a $70,000 increase as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The increased provisions were primarily related to the provisions recorded on unclassified loans in the commercial loan portfolio.  The commercial loan portfolio increased by 27.1% during the nine month period ended September 30, 2016, resulting in the need for additional provision. The increases were also attributed to an increase in charged off loans.

Non-performing loans as a percent of total loans at September 30, 2016 were 1.81%, a 24 basis points increase from 1.57% at December 31, 2015, primarily as a result of an increase in non-performing commercial real estate loans during the first nine months of 2016. The Company’s allowance for loan losses as a percent of total loans was 0.66% on September 30, 2016 and 0.67% at December 31, 2015.

Loans receivable, net at September 30, 2016 were $320.4 million, a $23.3 million, or 7.8%, increase as compared to $297.1 million at December 31, 2015.
