The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to rules and regulations of the SEC and in compliance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Because this report is based on an interim period, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted.
In the opinion of management of the registrant, the accompanying consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2019 and for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 include all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial condition and the results of operations for the periods presented. The financial performance reported for CNB Financial Corporation (the “Corporation”) for the three and six month period ended June 30, 2019 is not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. This information should be read in conjunction with the Corporation’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 Form 10-K”). All dollar amounts are stated in thousands, except share and per share data and other amounts as indicated. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
2. STOCK COMPENSATION
The Corporation has a stock incentive plan, which is administered by a committee of the Board of Directors and which permits the Corporation to provide various types of stock-based compensation to its key employees, directors, and/or consultants, including time-based and performance-based shares of restricted stock. The Corporation previously maintained the CNB Financial Corporation 2009 Stock Incentive Plan, which terminated in accordance with its terms on February 10, 2019, and currently maintains the CNB Financial Corporation 2019 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the "2019 Stock Incentive Plan"), which was approved by the Corporation’s shareholders and became effective on April 16, 2019.
For key employees, the vesting of time-based restricted stock is one-third, one-fourth, or one-fifth of the granted restricted shares per year, beginning one year after the grant date, with 100% vesting on the third, fourth or fifth anniversary of the grant date, respectively. Prior to 2018, for non-employee directors, the vesting schedule was one-third of the granted restricted shares per year, beginning one year after the grant date, with 100% vested on the third anniversary of the grant date. Beginning in 2018, stock compensation received by non-employee directors vests immediately. At June 30, 2019, there was no unrecognized compensation cost related to stock-based compensation awarded under this plan and, except for the time-based and performance-based restricted stock awards disclosed below and in previous filings, no other stock-based compensation was granted during the three or six month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018.
In addition to the time-based restricted stock disclosed above, the Corporation’s Board of Directors grants performance-based restricted stock awards (“PBRSAs”) to key employees. The number of PBRSAs will depend on certain performance conditions and are also subject to service-based vesting. In 2019, awards with a maximum of 16,681 shares in aggregate were granted to key employees. In 2018, awards with a maximum of 15,657 shares in aggregate were granted to key employees. In 2017, an award with a maximum of 7,109 shares was granted to a key employee.
Compensation expense for the restricted stock awards is recognized over the requisite service period noted above based on the fair value of the shares at the date of grant. Nonvested restricted stock awards are recorded as a reduction of additional paid-in-capital in shareholders’ equity until earned. Compensation expense resulting from time-based, performance-based and director restricted stock awards was $275 and $867 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and $272 and $949 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018. There was $911 and $775 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested restricted stock awards, as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. The total income tax benefit related to the recognized compensation cost of vested restricted stock awards was $58 and $182 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and $57 and $199 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively.
A summary of changes in time-based nonvested restricted stock awards for the three months ended June 30, 2019 follows:
Per Share Weighted Average Grant Date Fair Value
Nonvested at beginning of period
Nonvested at end of period
A summary of changes in time-based nonvested restricted stock awards for the six months ended June 30, 2019 follows:
Per Share Weighted Average Grant Date Fair Value
Nonvested at beginning of period
Nonvested at end of period
The above table excludes 13,850 shares in restricted stock awards that were granted at a weighted average fair value of $25.27 and immediately vested. Compensation expense resulting from the immediately vested shares was $0 and $350 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and is included in the previously disclosed $275 and $867 above, respectively.
The fair value of shares vested was $101 and $1,328 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and $9 and $1,471 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.
3. FAIR VALUE
Fair Value Measurement
Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. A fair value hierarchy has also been established which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The following three levels of inputs are used to measure fair value:
Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the entity has the ability to access as of the measurement date.
Level 2: Significant other observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs that reflect a company’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability.
The fair values of most trading securities and securities available for sale are determined by obtaining quoted prices on nationally recognized securities exchanges (Level 1 inputs) or matrix pricing, which is a mathematical technique widely used in the industry to value debt securities without relying exclusively on quoted prices for the specific securities but rather relying on the securities’ relationship to other benchmark quoted securities (Level 2 inputs).
The Corporation’s derivative instruments are interest rate swaps that are similar to those that trade in liquid markets. As such, significant fair value inputs can generally be verified and do not typically involve significant management judgments (Level 2 inputs).
The fair value of impaired loans with specific allocations of the allowance for loan losses is generally based on recent real estate appraisals prepared by third-parties. These appraisals may utilize a single valuation approach or a combination of approaches including comparable sales and the income approach. Adjustments are routinely made in the appraisal process by the appraisers to adjust for differences between the comparable sales and income data available. Management also adjusts appraised values based on the length of time that has passed since the appraisal date and other factors. Such adjustments are usually significant and typically result in a Level 3 classification of the inputs for determining fair value.
