Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. Reports 2023 Financial Results

DUNMORE, Pa., Jan. 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FDBC) and its banking subsidiary, The Fidelity Deposit and Discount Bank, announced its unaudited, consolidated financial results for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2023.

Unaudited Financial Information

Net income recorded for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $18.2 million, or $3.19 diluted earnings per share, compared to $30.0 million, or $5.29 diluted earnings per share, for the year ended December 31, 2022.  The $11.8 million, or 39% decline in net income stemmed from the $10.2 million reduction in net interest income and $5.2 million less non-interest income primarily from losses on the sale of securities partially offset by $3.4 million lower provision for income taxes.

During the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company sold certain available-for-sale securities with a carrying value of $35.6 million for a $6.5 million pre-tax loss in order to deleverage the reliance on short-term borrowings in order to reposition the balance sheet. Excluding the loss on the sale of securities of $5.1 million, net of tax, adjusted net income was $23.3 million, or $4.08 adjusted diluted earnings per share, for the year ended December 31, 2023, a $6.7 million decrease compared to 2022. For more detail on adjusted net income which is a non-GAAP measurement, refer to the “Non-GAAP Measures” table within the Selected Financial Ratios and Other Data section.

“2023 core earnings remained strong as we repositioned the balance sheet to provide flexibility through uncertain economic climates. We continue to execute well,” stated Daniel J. Santaniello, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our balance sheet and credit quality are strong, and expenses remain well managed. We continue to be focused, disciplined and thoughtful as we execute on our strategic plan. The Fidelity Bankers have demonstrated exemplary efforts and Fidelity Bank is well positioned for the future and committed to our clients, shareholders, and the communities we serve.”

Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 was $0.5 million, or $0.08 diluted earnings per share, compared to $7.1 million, or $1.26 diluted earnings per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2022.  The $6.6 million, or 93%, decline in net income resulted primarily from $5.9 million lower non-interest income due to the $6.5 million loss on the sale of securities during the fourth quarter of 2023. Net interest income declined $3.4 million which was partially offset by a $2.1 million reduction in the provision for income taxes and $0.4 million less in the provision for credit losses on loans. 

Excluding the loss on the sale of securities of $5.1 million, net of tax, adjusted net income was $5.6 million, or $0.97 adjusted diluted earnings per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2023, a $1.5 million decrease compared to the same period in 2022. For more detail on adjusted net income which is a non-GAAP measurement, refer to the “Non-GAAP Measures” table within the Selected Financial Ratios and Other Data section.

Consolidated Year-To-Date Operating Results Overview

Net interest income was $62.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to $72.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022.  The $10.2 million, or 14%, decline was the result of interest expense growing faster than interest income.  On the asset side, the loan portfolio caused interest income growth by producing $16.6 million more interest income from an increase of 68 basis points in FTE loan yields on $134.5 million in higher average balances. Interest income in the commercial portfolio increased $9.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to the same 2022 period, despite recognition of $1.2 million less Small Business Administration ("SBA") fees attributable to Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loans over the same time period.  Interest income from investments decreased $1.1 million from the $67.1 million lower average balance in the portfolio. On the funding side, interest expense increased by $25.4 million primarily due to the 144 basis point higher rate paid on interest-bearing deposits. The Company also required $48.8 million more in average short-term borrowings which added $2.3 million in interest expense. FTE net interest spread was 2.25% for 2023, or 91 basis points lower than the 3.16% recorded for 2022.  Over the same time period, the Company’s FTE net interest margin decreased by 47 basis points to 2.81% from 3.28%.

The provision for credit losses on loans was $1.5 million which was partially offset by a benefit for credit losses on unfunded loan commitments of $0.2 million for 2023. During the first quarter of 2023, the Company adopted Accounting Standard Update 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (CECL). The provision for credit losses on loans and unfunded commitments for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2023 are presented under ASC 326 while prior period amounts continue to be reported in accordance with previously applicable GAAP. For the year ended December 31, 2023, the benefit for credit losses on unfunded commitments was due to a reduction in unfunded commitments during the year. For the year ended December 31, 2023, the increase in the allowance for credit losses on loans was due to growth and change in composition of the loan portfolio.

Total non-interest income for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $11.4 million, a decrease of $5.2 million, or 31%, from $16.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2022. Non-interest income would have increased $1.3 million if not for the $6.5 million loss on the sale of securities during 2023. In addition, the Company also recorded $0.7 million lower gains on loans sold and $0.3 million less service charges on loans.  Partially offsetting these decreases was $0.5 million in additional trust fiduciary fees, $0.5 million more service charges on deposits, $0.3 million in recoveries from acquired charged-off loans, $0.3 million higher commercial swap fees, $0.3 million in additional mortgage servicing fees and $0.2 million more debit card interchange fees.

Non-interest expenses increased to $51.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, an increase of $0.5 million, or 1%, from $51.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2022. The largest driver of this increase was a $1.2 million increase in premises and equipment expenses which increased $0.6 million primarily from additional depreciation, equipment maintenance and software subscription related expenses. In addition, the Company incurred $0.5 million more in fraud losses, $0.4 million higher FDIC assessment and a $0.4 million increase in professional service expenses. Partially offsetting these increases, salaries and employee benefits expenses decreased $1.3 million, primarily from less incentive based compensation, and PA shares tax expense declined $0.6 million from a lower capital taxable base.

The provision for income taxes decreased $3.4 million during 2023 compared to 2022 due to a $0.5 million increase in tax credits and the lower income before taxes. 

Consolidated Fourth Quarter Operating Results Overview

Net interest income was $14.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, a 19% decrease over the $18.3 million earned for the fourth quarter of 2022.  The $3.4 million decline in net interest income resulted primarily from the $7.0 million increase in interest expense primarily due to a 156 basis point increase in the rates paid on interest-bearing deposits supplemented by $27.7 million higher average balances of interest-bearing deposits. The Company also required $44.6 million more in average short-term borrowings during the fourth quarter of 2023 which contributed $0.5 million in additional interest expense compared to the fourth quarter of 2022. Partially offsetting the higher interest expense, interest income grew $3.5 million primarily due to a $123.9 million increase in the average balance of loans and leases and a 63 basis point increase in fully-taxable equivalent ("FTE") yields earned thereon, producing $4.0 million higher FTE interest income. Partially offsetting the higher interest income in the loan portfolio, interest income from the investment portfolio declined $0.4 million primarily from the decrease of $79.6 million in the average balance of securities.  

The overall cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 2.36% for the fourth quarter of 2023, an increase of 162 basis points from the 0.74% paid for the fourth quarter of 2022.  The cost of funds increased 126 basis points to 1.79% for the fourth quarter of 2023 from 0.53% for the fourth quarter of 2022. The Company’s FTE (non-GAAP measurement) net interest spread was 2.00% for the fourth quarter of 2023, down 104 basis points from the 3.04% recorded for the fourth quarter of 2022.  FTE net interest margin decreased by 61 basis points to 2.66% for the three months ended December 31, 2023 from 3.27% for the same 2022 period due to the increase in rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities growing at a faster pace than the yields on interest-earning assets. Average non-interest bearing deposits, which impact net interest margin, decreased $75.6 million quarter-over-quarter resulting in the widening gap between spread and margin.

The provision for credit losses on loans was $0.1 million partially offset by a net benefit in the provision for credit losses on unfunded loan commitments of $0.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2023. For the three months ended December 31, 2023, the increase in the provision for credit losses on loans was due to growth and change in composition of the loan portfolio. For the three months ended December 31, 2023, the $0.1 million benefit for credit losses on unfunded commitments was due to a reduction in unfunded commitments during the quarter.

Total non-interest income decreased $5.9 million due to the $6.5 million loss recognized on the sale of securities during the fourth quarter of 2023. Partially offsetting this decrease was the $0.3 million increase in wealth management revenue, $0.1 million in mortgage servicing fees and $0.1 million higher service charges on deposits.

Non-interest expenses remained relatively unchanged for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to the same quarter of 2022.  Increases of $0.2 million in premises and equipment expenses and $0.2 million in fraud losses were partially offset by decreases of $0.2 million in professional services. 

The provision for income taxes decreased $2.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2023 primarily due to the lower level of operating income compared to the fourth quarter of 2022.  

Consolidated Balance Sheet & Asset Quality Overview

The Company’s total assets grew to $2.5 billion as of December 31, 2023, an increase of $125 million from December 31, 2022.  Growth in the loan portfolio of $121 million and $83 million in cash and cash equivalents was partially offset by a reduction of the investment portfolio by $75 million. The decline in the investment portfolio was primarily due to sales of $67 million in securities and $25 million in paydowns partially offset by a $16 million increase in market value of available-for-sale securities. Also noteworthy during 2023, the market value of held-to-maturity securities increased by $10 million, with $27 million in unrealized losses at December 31, 2023. During the same time period, total liabilities increased $98 million, or 4%.  Growth of $104 million in short-term borrowings replaced deposit declines of $8 million with the remaining balance used to fund loan growth with the excess increasing cash balances. Transactional deposit mix changed with overall balances down primarily from customers' investing part of their funds in higher yields and increased consumer spending. This reduction was partially mitigated through the $96 million growth achieved by promotional CD offerings during 2023. As of December 31, 2023, the ratio of insured and collateralized deposits to total deposits was approximately 77%.

Shareholders’ equity increased $26.5 million, or 16%, to $189.5 million at December 31, 2023 from $163.0 million at December 31, 2022. The increase was caused by a $14.7 million, after tax, improvement in accumulated other comprehensive income from lower net unrealized losses recorded on available-for-sale investment securities plus retained earnings increase from net income of $18.2 million, partially offset by $8.4 million in cash dividends paid to shareholders. An additional $3.3 million was recorded from the issuance of common stock under the Company’s stock plans and stock-based compensation expense. Partially offsetting these increases was a cumulative-effect adjustment made for adoption of ASU 2016-13 during the first quarter of 2023 which reduced retained earnings by $1.3 million. At December 31, 2023, there were no credit losses on available-for-sale and held-to-maturity debt securities.  Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) is excluded from regulatory capital ratios. The Company remains well capitalized with Tier 1 capital at 9.15% of total average assets as of December 31, 2023.  Total risk-based capital was 14.67% of risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 risk-based capital was 13.42% of risk-weighted assets as of December 31, 2023.  Tangible book value per share was $29.57 at December 31, 2023 compared to $25.18 at December 31, 2022.  Tangible common equity was 6.79% of total assets at December 31, 2023 compared to 6.01% at December 31, 2022.

Asset Quality

Total non-performing assets were $3.3 million, or 0.13% of total assets, at December 31, 2023, compared to $2.7 million, or 0.12% of total assets, at December 31, 2022. Past due and non-accrual loans to total loans were 0.46% at December 31, 2023 compared to 0.28% at December 31, 2022. Net charge-offs to average total loans were 0.04% at December 31, 2023 compared to 0.04% at December 31, 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures to provide information useful to the reader in understanding its operating performance and trends, and to facilitate comparisons with the performance of other financial institutions. Management uses these measures internally to assess and better understand our underlying business performance and trends related to core business activities.  The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators other financial institutions use to measure their performance and trends. Non-GAAP financial measures should be supplemental to GAAP used to prepare the Company’s operating results and should not be read in isolation or relied upon as a substitute for GAAP measures.  Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP are presented in the tables below.

 Interest income was adjusted to recognize the income from tax exempt interest-earning assets as if the interest was taxable, fully-taxable equivalent (FTE), in order to calculate certain ratios within this document.  This treatment allows a uniform comparison among yields on interest-earning assets.  Interest income was FTE adjusted, using the corporate federal tax rate of 21% for 2023 and 2022.

**Note that based on the Company’s adoption of ASU 2022-02, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326) Troubled Debt Restructurings and Vintage Disclosures, the recognition and measurement guidance related to troubled debt restructurings (TDR) has been eliminated. As such, TDRs were removed from non-performing assets for the current reporting period to adhere to this standard. Prior periods included accruing TDRs in non-performing assets.
