First Capital, Inc. Reports Record Quarterly Earnings

30 Days ago

CORYDON, Ind., July 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:  FCAP), the holding company for First Harrison Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $2.9 million or $0.86 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $2.1 million or $0.63 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.  The increase was primarily due to an increase in net interest income after provision for loan losses.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $1.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018.  Interest income increased $1.2 million when comparing the periods due to increases in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 3.93% for the second quarter of 2018 to 4.35% for the second quarter of 2019 and the average balance of interest-earning assets from $728.6 million for the second quarter of 2018 to $767.0 million for the second quarter of 2019.  Interest expense increased $96,000 when comparing the periods due to increases in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities from $555.2 million for the second quarter of 2018 to $573.3 million for the second quarter of 2019 and the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities from 0.28% to 0.34% when comparing the same two periods.  As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread increased from 3.65% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 to 4.01% for the same period in 2019. 

Based on management’s analysis of the allowance for loan losses, the provision for loan losses decreased from $316,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 to $300,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.  The Bank recognized net charge-offs of $30,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to $80,000 for the same period in 2018. 

Noninterest income increased $32,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018.  ATM and debit card fees increased $86,000 when comparing the two periods and losses on the sale of securities of $96,000 were recognized during the quarter ended June 30, 2018.  This was partially offset by a $78,000 decrease in other income primarily related to a gain on bank-owned life insurance recognized in 2018. 

Noninterest expense increased $67,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018, due primarily to increases in compensation and benefits expense of $266,000 and data processing expense of $105,000 partially offset by a decrease in net losses on foreclosed real estate of $307,000.

Income tax expense increased $281,000 for the second quarter of 2019 as compared to the second quarter of 2018 primarily due to an increase in taxable income and a reduction in benefits from a tax credit entity recognized for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.   As a result, the effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was 16.6% compared to 12.0% for the same period in 2018.   

For the six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company reported net income of $5.0 million or $1.50 per diluted share compared to net income of $4.2 million or $1.27 per diluted share for the same period in 2018.  

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.  Interest income increased $2.1 million when comparing the two periods, due to increases in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $719.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 to $754.0 million for the same period in 2019 and the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 3.90% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 to 4.27% for the same period in 2019.  Interest expense increased $210,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased from 0.27% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 to 0.33% for the same period in 2019 and the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased from $548.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 to $566.0 million for the same period in 2019. As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread increased from 3.63% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 to 3.94% for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Based on management’s analysis of the allowance for loan losses, the provision for loan losses increased from $513,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 to $750,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 primarily due to growth in the loan portfolio.  The Bank recognized net charge-offs of $206,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $280,000 for the same period in 2018. 

Noninterest income increased $11,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018.  The increase was primarily due to increases in ATM and debit card fees and unrealized gains on equity securities of $133,000 and $117,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods, partially offset by decreases of $112,000 and $77,000 in gains on the sale of loans and service charges on deposit accounts, respectively. 

Noninterest expenses increased $478,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018, primarily due to increases in compensation and benefit expense of $414,000 and data processing expense of $199,000 when comparing the two periods.  This was partially offset by a decrease in net loss on foreclosed real estate of $233,000.   

Income tax expense increased $362,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018 resulting in an effective tax rate of 16.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 13.3% for the same period in 2018.  As discussed above, the increase in the effective tax rate is primarily due to an increase in taxable income and a reduction in benefits from a tax credit entity.

Total assets increased $40.8 million to $834.9 million at June 30, 2019 from $794.2 million at December 31, 2018.  Net loans receivable and cash and cash equivalents increased $25.7 million and $19.4 million, respectively, from December 31, 2018 to June 30, 2019.  Deposits increased $33.0 million to $734.6 million at June 30, 2019 due primarily to increases in both noninterest-bearing and interest-bearing demand deposits.  Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonaccrual loans, accruing loans 90 days or more past due, troubled debt restructurings on accrual status, and foreclosed real estate) decreased from $6.9 million at December 31, 2018 to $6.3 million at June 30, 2019.
