Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

Note 1: Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of FSB Bancorp, Inc. (“FSB Bancorp”), Fairport Savings Bank (the “Bank”), and its other wholly-owned subsidiary, Fairport Wealth Management (collectively, the “Company”), have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, the instructions for Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of consolidated financial condition, results of operations and cash flows in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals considered necessary for a fair presentation, have been included. The results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019 or for any future period.

 

The Company's consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and follow practices within the banking industry. Application of these principles requires management to make estimates, assumptions, and judgments that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. These estimates, assumptions, and judgments are based on information available as of the date of the consolidated financial statements; accordingly, as this information changes, the consolidated financial statements could reflect different estimates, assumptions, and judgments. Certain policies inherently have a greater reliance on the use of estimates, assumptions, and judgments and as such have a greater possibility of producing results that could be materially different than originally reported. Estimates, assumptions, and judgments are necessary when assets and liabilities are required to be recorded at fair value or when an asset or liability needs to be recorded contingent upon a future event. Carrying assets and liabilities at fair value inherently results in more consolidated financial statement volatility. The fair values and information used to record valuation adjustments for certain assets and liabilities are based on quoted market prices or are provided by other third-party sources, when available. When third party information is not available, valuation adjustments are estimated in good faith by management.

 

Note 2: New Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This new guidance supersedes the lease requirements in Topic 840, Leases and is based on the principle that a lessee should recognize in the balance sheet a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. The accounting applied by a lessor is largely unchanged from that applied under the previous guidance. In addition, the guidance requires an entity to separate the lease components from the nonlease components in a contract. The ASU requires disclosures about the amount, timing, and judgments related to a reporting entity's accounting for leases and related cash flows. The standard is required to be applied to all leases in existence as of the date of adoption using a modified retrospective transition approach. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for all companies in any interim or annual period. The Company occupies certain offices under non-cancelable operating lease agreements, which currently are not reflected in its consolidated balance sheets. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2019 and going forward will recognize lease liabilities and right of use assets associated with these lease agreements.

 

The new guidance requires lessees to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term greater than 12 months.  While the guidance requires all leases to be recognized in the balance sheet, there continues to be a differentiation between finance leases and operating leases for purposes of income statement recognition and cash flow statement presentation.  For finance leases, interest on the lease liability and amortization of the right-of-use asset will be recognized separately in the consolidated statement of income.  Repayments of principal on those lease liabilities will be classified within financing activities and payments of interest on the lease liability will be classified within operating activities in the statement of cash flows.  For operating leases, a single lease cost is recognized in the consolidated statement of income and allocated over the lease term, generally on a straight-line basis.  All cash payments are presented within operating activities in the statement of cash flows. The accounting applied by lessors is largely unchanged from existing GAAP, however, the guidance eliminates the accounting model for leveraged leases for leases that commence after the effective date of the guidance.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326). This new guidance significantly changes how entities will measure credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments that are not measured at fair value through net income. This ASU will replace the "incurred loss" model under existing guidance with an "expected loss" model for instruments measured at amortized cost, and require entities to record allowances for available-for-sale debt securities rather than reduce the carrying amount, as they do today under the other-than-temporary impairment model. This ASU also simplifies the accounting model for purchased credit-impaired debt securities and loans. This guidance requires adoption through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is adopted. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for all companies as of fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the guidance will have on the Company's consolidated financial statements, and expects an increase in the allowance for credit losses resulting from the change to expected losses for the estimated life of the financial asset, including an allowance for debt securities. The amount of the increase in the allowance for credit losses resulting from the new guidance will be impacted by the portfolio composition and asset quality at the adoption date, as well as economic conditions and forecasts at the time of adoption. The Company will run a second model concurrently in 2019 to evaluate the impact of the new guidance.

 

In March 2017, the FASB issued an Update (ASU 2017-08) to its guidance on “Receivables – Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs (Subtopic 310-20) related to premium amortization on purchased callable debt securities. The amendments in this Update shorten the amortization period for certain callable debt securities held at a premium.  Specifically, the amendments require the premium to be amortized to the earliest call date. The amendments do not require an accounting change for securities held at a discount; the discount continues to be amortized to maturity.  For public business entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018.  Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period.  If an entity early adopts the amendments in an interim period, any adjustments should be reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period.  An entity should apply the amendments in this Update on a modified retrospective basis through a cumulative-effect adjustment directly to retained earnings as of the beginning of the period of adoption.  Additionally, in the period of adoption, an entity should provide disclosure about a change in accounting principle.  The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our consolidated results of operations or financial position.

 

In May 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-06, Codification Improvements to Topic 942, Financial Services - Depository and Lending. This update superseded outdated guidance related to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s Banking Circular 202, Accounting for Net Deferred Tax Charges. The Company has adopted this standard effective as of January 1, 2019, and the impact is immaterial.

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. This update expands the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. As a result, nonemployee share-based payment awards will be measured at the grant-date fair value of the equity instruments that an entity is obligated to issue when the service has been rendered, subject to the probability of satisfying performance conditions when applicable. The Company has adopted this standard effective as of January 1, 2019, and the impact is immaterial.

 

In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-09, Codification Improvements to address stakeholder suggestions for minor corrections and clarifications within the codification. The transition and effective date guidance is based on the facts and circumstances of each amendment. Some of the amendments in this update do not require transition guidance and will be effective upon issuance of this update. The Company has adopted this standard effective as of January 1, 2019, and the impact is immaterial.

 

In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842. Leases to address certain narrow aspects of the guidance issued in ASU No. 2016-02. This guidance did not change the Company’s assessment of the impact of ASU No. 2016-02 on the consolidated financial statements as described above.

 

In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements, which amends FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 842, Leases, to (1) add an optional transition method that would permit entities to apply the new requirements by recognizing a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the year of adoption, and (2) provide a practical expedient for lessors regarding the separation of the lease and non-lease components of a contract. This guidance did not change the Company’s assessment of the impact of ASU No. 2016-02 on the consolidated financial statements as described above.

In August 2018, the FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2018-15, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract, a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force, which amends the FASB ASC to provide guidance on accounting for costs of implementation activities performed in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract. In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-05, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement, which provided guidance to customers concerning whether a cloud computing arrangement (e.g., software, platform, or infrastructure offered as a service) includes a software license. Pursuant to that guidance, (1) if a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license, the software license element of the arrangement should be accounted for in a manner consistent with the acquisition of other software licenses, or (2) if the arrangement does not include a software license, then the arrangement should be accounted for as a service contract, with the fees associated with the hosting element (service) of the arrangement expensed as they are incurred.

 

Following the issuance of ASU No. 2015-05, constituents requested that the FASB provide additional guidance on the accounting for costs of implementation activities performed in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract. Accordingly, because U.S. GAAP do not contain explicit guidance on accounting for such costs, and to address the resulting diversity in practice, the FASB has issued ASU No. 2018-15 to align the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software (and hosting arrangements that include an internal-use software license). Note that the guidance on accounting for the service element of a hosting arrangement that is a service contract is not affected by the amendments in ASU No. 2018-15. For Public Business Entities, the amended guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 (i.e., calendar-year 2020), and for interim periods within those fiscal years.

 

Note 3: Earnings per Common Share

 

Basic earnings per common share is calculated by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed in a similar manner to that of basic earnings per share except that the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding is increased to reflect the assumed exercise and conversion of dilutive stock options and unvested restricted stock. Net income available to common stockholders is net income of the Company. Unallocated common shares held by the ESOP are not included in the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for purposes of calculating earnings per common share until they are committed to be released. The Company did not grant any restricted stock awards or stock options during the three months ended March 31, 2019. An aggregate of 15,000 stock options and 6,400 shares of restricted stock were granted to senior management during the three months ended March 31, 2018. The grants to senior management vest over a five year period in equal annual installments, with the first installment vesting on the first anniversary date of the grant and succeeding installments on each anniversary thereafter, through 2023.

 

The following tables set forth the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share.

The Company conducts a formal review of investment securities on a quarterly basis for the presence of other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”). The Company assesses whether OTTI is present when the fair value of a debt security is less than its amortized cost basis at the consolidated balance sheet date. Under these circumstances, OTTI is considered to have occurred (1) if we intend to sell the security; (2) if it is “more likely than not” we will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis; or (3) the present value of expected cash flows is not anticipated to be sufficient to recover the entire amortized cost basis. The guidance requires that credit-related OTTI is recognized in earnings while non-credit-related OTTI on securities not expected to be sold is recognized in other comprehensive income (“OCI”). Non-credit-related OTTI is based on other factors, including illiquidity and changes in the general interest rate environment. Presentation of OTTI is made in the consolidated statement of income on a gross basis, including both the portion recognized in earnings as well as the portion recorded in OCI. The gross OTTI would then be offset by the amount of non-credit-related OTTI, showing the net as the impact on earnings.

 

There were 25 securities in an unrealized loss position at March 31, 2019, of which 23 have been in loss positions for a period greater than twelve months and two have been in loss positions for a period less than twelve months. This compares to 32 securities in an unrealized loss position at December 31, 2018, of which 28 had been in loss positions for a period greater than twelve months and four had been in loss positions for a period less than twelve months. These issuing entities are currently rated Aaa by Moody’s Investor Services and AA+ by Standard and Poors. Among the 23 securities in loss positions for a period greater than twelve months at March 31, 2019, 13 were either direct issuances of, or mortgage-backed securities or collateralized mortgage obligations issued by, the following entities sponsored and guaranteed by the United States Government: GNMA, FNMA, and FHLMC. The remaining 10 securities that have been in a loss position for a period greater than twelve months were issued by a state or political subdivision, primarily local municipalities. The unrealized losses reflected are primarily attributable to changes in interest rates since the securities were acquired.

 

Among the two securities in an unrealized loss position at March 31, 2019 for less than twelve months, both were either direct issuances of, or mortgage-backed securities or collateralized mortgage obligations issued by, the following entities sponsored and guaranteed by the United States Government: GNMA, FNMA, and FHLMC. The unrealized losses reflected are primarily attributable to changes in interest rates since the securities were acquired. The Company does not intend to sell these securities, nor is it more likely than not, that the Company will be required to sell these securities prior to recovery of the amortized cost. The state and municipal securities are general obligation (G.O.) bonds backed by the full faith and credit of local municipalities. There has never been a default of a New York G.O. in the history of the state. Historical performance does not guarantee future performance, but it does indicate that the risk of loss on default of a G.O. municipal bond for the Company is relatively low. All are paying in accordance with their terms with no deferrals of interest or defaults. As such, management does not believe any individual unrealized loss as of March 31, 2019 represents OTTI.

 

There were no realized gains or losses on sales of securities for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018.

 

As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, no securities were pledged to secure public deposits or for any other purpose required or permitted by law.

 

Management has reviewed its loan and mortgage-backed securities portfolios and determined that, to the best of its knowledge, little or no exposure exists to sub-prime or other high-risk residential mortgages. The Company is not in the practice of investing in, or originating, these types of investments or loans.

The Company originates residential mortgage, commercial, and consumer loans largely to customers throughout Monroe county and the surrounding western New York counties of Erie, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Jefferson, Niagara, and Wayne. Although the Company has a diversified loan portfolio, a substantial portion of its borrowers’ abilities to honor their loan contracts is dependent upon the counties’ employment and economic conditions.

 

As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, residential mortgage loans with a carrying value of $200.1 million and $201.9 million, respectively, have been pledged by the Company to the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York under a blanket collateral agreement to secure the Company’s line of credit and term borrowings. The Company retains the servicing on conventional fixed-rate mortgage loans sold to Freddie Mac and receives a fee based on the principal balance outstanding. Loans serviced for others totaled $121.0 million and $123.8 million at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. Loan servicing rights are recorded at fair value when loans are sold with servicing rights retained. The fair value of the mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”) is determined using a method which utilizes servicing income, discount rates, and prepayment speeds relative to the Bank’s portfolio for MSRs and are amortized over the life of the loan. MSRs amounted to $784,000 and $812,000 at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, and are included in other assets on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

Loan Origination / Risk Management

 

The Company’s lending policies and procedures are presented in Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements included in FSB Bancorp’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 27, 2019 and have not changed.

 

To develop and document a systematic methodology for determining the allowance for loan losses, the Company has divided the loan portfolio into two portfolio segments, each with different risk characteristics but with similar methodologies for assessing risk.  Each portfolio segment is broken down into loan classes where appropriate.  Loan classes contain unique measurement attributes, risk characteristics, and methods for monitoring and assessing risk that are necessary to develop the allowance for loan losses. Unique characteristics such as borrower type, loan type, collateral type, and risk characteristics define each class.

Commercial real estate loans rated special mention increased $956,000, or 102.7%, to $1.9 million at March 31, 2019 from $931,000 at December 31, 2018 due to the addition of one loan newly categorized as special mention after an annual financial statement review of the borrower was performed during the three months ended March 31, 2019. Real estate loans secured by one-to four family residences rated special mention decreased $494,000 to $0 at March 31, 2019 from $494,000 at December 31, 2018 due to a mortgage loan payoff.

 

Management has reviewed its loan portfolio and determined that, to the best of its knowledge, no exposure exists to sub-prime or other high-risk residential mortgages. The Company is not in the practice of originating these types of loans.

Nonaccrual and Past Due Loans

 

Loans are placed on nonaccrual when the contractual payment of principal and interest has become 90 days past due or management has serious doubts about further collectability of principal or interest, even though the loan may be currently performing.

 

Loans are considered past due if the required principal and interest payments have not been received within thirty days of the payment due date. An age analysis of past due loans, segregated by portfolio segment and class of loans, as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, are detailed in the following tables:

Note 6: Allowance for Loan Losses and Foreclosed Real Estate

 

Summarized in the tables below are changes in the allowance for loan losses for the indicated periods and information pertaining to the allocation of the allowance for loan losses, balances of the allowance for loan losses, loans receivable based on individual, and collective impairment evaluation by loan portfolio class. An allocation of a portion of the allowance to a given portfolio class does not limit the Company’s ability to absorb losses in another portfolio class.

Note 7: Fair Value Measurements

 

Accounting guidance related to fair value measurements and disclosures specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s market assumptions. These two types of inputs have created the following fair value hierarchy:

 

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 – Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets.

 

Level 3 – Model-derived valuations in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

 

An asset’s or liability’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

In determining fair value, the Company utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs, minimize the use of unobservable inputs, to the extent possible, and considers counterparty credit risk in its assessment of fair value.

 

The following tables summarize assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of the indicated dates, segregated by the level of valuation inputs within the hierarchy utilized to measure fair value:

 

   March 31, 2019 
(In thousands)  Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total Fair Value

Total available-for-sale securities  $-   $17,839   $-   $17,839

Mortgage-backed securities – residential   -    5,876    -    5,876 
Total available-for-sale securities  $-   $18,331   $-   $18,331 

 

There have been no transfers of assets into or out of any fair value measurement level during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

Required disclosures include fair value information of financial instruments, whether or not recognized in the consolidated balance sheets, for which it is practicable to estimate that value. In cases where quoted market prices are not available, fair values are based on estimates using present value or other valuation techniques. Those techniques are significantly affected by the assumptions used, including the discount rate and estimates of future cash flows. In that regard, the derived fair value estimates cannot be substantiated by comparison to independent markets and, in many cases, could not be realized in immediate settlement of the instrument.

 

 - 18 - 

 

 

The Company has various processes and controls in place to ensure that fair value is reasonably estimated. The Company performs due diligence procedures over third-party pricing service providers in order to support their use in the valuation process.

 

While the Company believes its valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different estimate of fair value at the reporting date.

 

Management uses its best judgment in estimating the fair value of the Company’s financial instruments; however, there are inherent weaknesses in any estimation technique. Therefore, for substantially all financial instruments, the fair value estimates herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could have realized in a sale transaction on the dates indicated. The estimated fair value amounts have been measured as of their respective period-ends, and have not been re-evaluated or updated for purposes of these consolidated financial statements subsequent to those respective dates. As such, the estimated fair values of these financial instruments subsequent to the respective reporting dates may be different than the amounts reported at each period-end. FASB ASC Topic 820 for Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, the financial assets and liabilities were valued at a price that represents the Company’s exit price or the price at which these instruments would be sold or transferred.

 

The following information should not be interpreted as an estimate of the fair value of the entire Company since a fair value calculation is only provided for a limited portion of the Company’s assets and liabilities. Due to a wide range of valuation techniques and the degree of subjectivity used in making the estimates, comparisons between the Company’s disclosures and those of other companies may not be meaningful. The Company, in estimating its fair value disclosures for financial instruments, used the following methods and assumptions:

 

Cash, Due from Banks, and Interest Earning Demand Deposits

 

The carrying amounts of these assets approximate their fair values.

 

Investment Securities

 

The fair value of securities available for sale (carried at fair value) and held to maturity (carried at amortized cost) are determined by matrix pricing, which is a mathematical technique used widely in the industry to value debt securities without relying exclusively on quoted market prices for the specific securities but rather relying on the securities’ relationship to other benchmark quoted prices and is considered to be a Level 2 measurement.

 

Investment in Restricted Stock

 

The carrying value of restricted stock, which consists of Federal Home Loan Bank and Atlantic Community Bankers Bank, approximates its fair value based on the redemption provisions of the restricted stock, resulting in a Level 2 classification.

 

Loans

 

The fair values of loans held in portfolio are estimated using discounted cash flow analyses. The discount rate considers a market participant’s cost of funds, liquidity premiums, capital charges, servicing charges, and expectations of future rate movements (for variable rate loans), resulting in a Level 3 classification. Projected future cash flows are calculated based upon contractual maturity or call dates, projected repayments and prepayments of principal, and adjusted for potential defaulted loans.

 

Loans held for sale in the secondary market are carried at the lower of cost or fair value, resulting in a Level 2 classification. Separate determinations of fair value for residential and commercial loans are made on an aggregate basis. Fair value is determined based solely on the effect of changes in secondary market interest rates and yield requirements from the commitment date to the date of the consolidated financial statements.

 

 - 19 - 

 

 

Accrued Interest Receivable and Payable

 

The carrying amount of accrued interest receivable and payable approximates fair value.

 

Deposits

 

The fair values disclosed for demand deposits (e.g., NOW accounts, non-interest checking, regular savings and certain types of money market accounts) are, by definition, equal to the amount payable on demand at the reporting date (i.e., their carrying amounts), resulting in a Level 1 classification. The carrying amounts for variable-rate certificates of deposit approximate their fair values at the reporting date, resulting in a Level 1 classification. Fair values for fixed-rate certificates of deposit are estimated using a discounted cash flow calculation that applies market interest rates currently being offered on certificates to a schedule of aggregated expected monthly maturities on time deposits, resulting in a Level 2 classification.

 

Borrowings

 

The fair values of FHLB long-term borrowings are estimated using discounted cash flow analyses, based on the quoted rates for new FHLB advances with similar credit risk characteristics, terms and remaining maturity, resulting in a Level 2 classification.

 

The carrying amounts and fair values of the Company’s financial instruments as of the indicated dates are presented in the following table:

Note 11: Leases

 

The Company occupies certain banking and mortgage origination offices under noncancelable operating lease agreements which were not reflected on the consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2018.  Upon adoption of the guidance on January 1, 2019, the Company recorded an asset of $2.3 million and a corresponding liability in the amount of $2.6 million, included in other liabilities, as a result of recognizing right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet. The Company elected to adopt the transition relief under ASC Topic 842, Leases, using the modified retrospective transition method. All lease agreements are accounted for as operating leases. The Company has no unamortized initial direct costs related to the establishment of these lease agreements as of January 1, 2019. We have elected the available practices expedients and implemented internal controls and key system functionality to enable the preparation of financial information on adoption.

 

Our leases have remaining lease terms that vary from less than one year up to 12 years, some of which include options to extend the leases for various renewal periods. All options to renew are included in the current lease term when we believe it is reasonably certain that the renewal options will be exercised.

Item 2 - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements contained herein are “forward looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements are generally identified by use of the words "believe," "expect," "intend," "anticipate," "estimate," "project" or similar expressions. The Company's ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Factors which could have a material adverse effect on the operations of the Company and its subsidiaries include, but are not limited to:

 

·Credit quality and the effect of credit quality on the adequacy of our allowance for loan losses;
·Deterioration in financial markets that may result in impairment charges relating to our securities portfolio;
·Competition in our primary market areas;
·Changes in interest rates and national or regional economic conditions;
·Changes in monetary and fiscal policies of the U.S. Government, including policies of the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve Board;
·Significant government regulations, legislation and potential changes thereto;
·A reduction in our ability to generate or originate revenue-producing assets as a result of compliance with heightened capital standards;
·Increased cost of operations due to greater regulatory oversight, supervision and examination of banks and bank holding companies, and higher deposit insurance premiums;
·Limitations on our ability to expand consumer product and service offerings due to potential stricter consumer protection laws and regulations; and
·Other risks described herein and in the other reports and statements we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

 

The Company disclaims any obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements contained in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q to reflect future events or developments.

 

Overview

 

The following discussion reviews the Company's financial condition at March 31, 2019 and at December 31, 2018 and the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019 or for any other period.

 

Our business has traditionally focused on originating one- to four-family residential real estate mortgage loans, home equity lines of credit, and offering retail deposit accounts. In recent years, we have expanded our mortgage origination footprint and opened new mortgage offices in Cheektowaga and Lewiston, New York. Our primary market area now consists of Monroe County and the surrounding western New York counties of Erie, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Jefferson, Niagara, and Wayne. Management has made the decision to deploy available funds from deposit and borrowings growth into higher-yielding assets, primarily residential and commercial loan products in 2019. More recently, we shifted attention to expand our commercial loan department in an effort to improve our interest rate risk exposure with shorter duration commercial loan products, as well as higher yielding assets.

 

Our results of operations depend primarily on our net interest income and, to a lesser extent, other income. Net interest income is the difference between the interest income we earn on our interest-earning assets, consisting primarily of loans, investment securities and other interest-earning assets (primarily cash and cash equivalents), and the interest we pay on our interest-bearing liabilities, consisting primarily of savings accounts, NOW accounts, money market accounts, time deposits and borrowings. Other income consists primarily of realized gains on sale of loans, mortgage fee income, fees and service charges from deposit products, fee income from our financial services subsidiary, earnings on bank owned life insurance and miscellaneous other income. Our results of operations also are affected by our provision for loan losses and other expenses. Other expenses consist primarily of salaries and employee benefits, occupancy, equipment, electronic banking, data processing costs, mortgage fees and taxes, advertising, directors’ fees, FDIC deposit insurance premium expense, audit and tax services, and other miscellaneous expenses. Our results of operations also may be affected significantly by general and local economic and competitive conditions, changes in market interest rates, government policies and actions of regulatory authorities.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Critical accounting policies are defined as those that involve significant judgments and uncertainties, and could potentially result in materially different results under different assumptions and conditions. The most significant accounting policies followed by the Company are presented in FSB Bancorp's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 27, 2019. These policies, along with the disclosures presented in the other consolidated financial statement notes filed with the SEC and in this discussion, provide information on how significant assets and liabilities are valued in the consolidated financial statements and how those values are determined. We believe that the most critical accounting policies upon which our financial condition and results of operations depend, involve the most complex subjective decisions or assessments including our policies with respect to our allowance for loan losses, deferred tax assets and the estimation of fair values for accounting and disclosure purposes. These areas could be the most subject to revision as new information becomes available. There have been no significant changes in application of critical accounting policies during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

Allowance for Loan Losses. The allowance for loan losses is the amount estimated by management as necessary to absorb credit losses incurred in the loan portfolio that are both probable and reasonably estimable at the consolidated balance sheet date. The amount of the allowance is based on significant estimates, and the ultimate losses may vary from such estimates as more information becomes available or conditions change. The methodology for determining the allowance for loan losses is considered a critical accounting policy by management due to the high degree of judgment involved, the subjectivity of the assumptions used and the potential for changes in the economic environment that could result in changes to the amount of the recorded allowance for loan losses.

 

As a substantial percentage of our loan portfolio is collateralized by real estate, appraisals of the underlying value of property securing loans are critical in determining the amount of the allowance required for specific loans. Assumptions are instrumental in determining the value of properties. Overly optimistic assumptions or negative changes to assumptions could significantly affect the valuation of a property securing a loan and the related allowance determined. Management carefully reviews the assumptions supporting such appraisals to determine that the resulting values reasonably reflect amounts realizable on the related loans.

 

Management performs an evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses at least quarterly. We consider a variety of factors in establishing this estimate including, but not limited to, current economic conditions, delinquency statistics, geographic concentrations, the adequacy of the underlying collateral, the financial strength of the borrower, results of internal loan reviews and other relevant factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires material estimates by management that may be susceptible to significant change based on changes in economic and real estate market conditions.

 

The evaluation has specific, general, and unallocated components. The specific component relates to loans that are deemed to be impaired and classified as special mention, substandard, doubtful, or loss. For such loans that are also classified as impaired, an allowance is generally established when the collateral value of the impaired loan is lower than the carrying value of that loan. The general component covers non-classified loans and is based on historical loss experience adjusted for qualitative factors. An unallocated component is maintained to cover uncertainties that could affect management’s estimate of probable losses. The unallocated component of the allowance reflects the margin of imprecision inherent in the underlying assumptions used in the methodologies for estimating known and inherent losses in the portfolio.

 

Actual loan losses may be significantly more than the allowance we have established which could have a material negative effect on our financial results.

 

Deferred Tax Assets. The deferred tax assets and liabilities represent the future tax return consequences of the temporary differences, which will either be taxable or deductible when the assets and liabilities are recovered or settled. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are reflected at income tax rates applicable to the period in which the deferred tax assets and liabilities are expected to be realized or settled. As changes in tax laws or rates are enacted, deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted through the provision for income taxes.

 

 - 26 - 

 

 

Estimation of Fair Values. Fair values for securities available-for-sale are obtained from an independent third party pricing service. Where available, fair values are based on quoted prices on a nationally recognized securities exchange. If quoted prices are not available, fair values are measured using quoted market prices for similar benchmark securities. Management generally makes no adjustments to the fair value quotes provided by the pricing source. The fair values of foreclosed real estate and the underlying collateral value of impaired loans are typically determined based on evaluations by third parties, less estimated costs to sell. When necessary, appraisals are updated to reflect changes in market conditions.

 

Comparison of Financial Condition at March 31, 2019 and at December 31, 2018

 

Total Assets. Total assets decreased $1.6 million, or 0.5%, to $326.6 million at March 31, 2019 from $328.3 million at December 31, 2018, primarily due to decreases in net loans receivable, securities available-for-sale, and investment in restricted stock, partially offset by an increase in right of use asset.

 

Net loans receivable decreased $1.5 million, or 0.5%, to $280.3 million at March 31, 2019 from $281.7 million at December 31, 2018. The Bank continues to focus on loan production as we look to primarily grow our residential mortgage and commercial loan portfolios at a measured pace while still maintaining our strong credit quality and strict underwriting standards. The Bank originated $10.0 million of residential mortgage loans for quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to $18.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The Bank sold $7.5 million of mortgage loans in the secondary market during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to $12.0 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018 as a consolidated balance sheet management strategy to reduce interest-rate risk. The Bank sold these loans at a gain of $170,000 which was recorded in other income for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to $301,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. At March 31, 2019, the Bank was servicing $121.0 million in residential mortgage loans sold to Freddie Mac and will realize servicing income on these loans as long as they remain outstanding. At March 31, 2019, the Bank had $339,000 in loans held for sale, comprised of one- to four-family residential fixed rate conventional and VA mortgage loans originated and closed by the Bank in the first quarter of 2019 that have been committed for sale in the secondary market, and will be delivered and sold in the second quarter of 2019. Mortgage servicing rights decreased $28,000, or 3.5%, to $784,000 at March 31, 2019 compared to $812,000 at December 31, 2018, and are included in other assets on the consolidated balance sheets due to lower volume of loans sold with servicing retained.

 

Securities available-for-sale decreased by $492,000, or 2.7%, to $17.8 million at March 31, 2019 from $18.3 million at December 31, 2018. The decrease was due to principal repayments and calls of $2.6 million and amortization of $17,000, partially offset by purchases of $2.0 million in new securities of U.S. Government and agency obligations and an increase in the fair market value of available-for-sale securities of $87,000 due to the increase in market interest rates during the first three months of 2019.

 

Investment in restricted stock decreased by $290,000, or 8.0%, to $3.3 million at March 31, 2019 from $3.6 million at December 31, 2018 due to decreased borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York.

 

Right of use asset increased by $2.3 million at March 31, 2019 from $0 at December 31, 2018 due to the adoption of Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) on January 1, 2019 which requires recognition of lease liabilities and right of use assets associated with lease agreements.

 

Deposits and Borrowings. Total deposits increased $2.8 million, or 1.3%, to $225.4 million at March 31, 2019 from $222.6 million at December 31, 2018. Certificates of deposit (including individual retirement accounts) increased $5.7 million, or 4.6%, to $129.6 million at March 31, 2019 from $123.9 million at December 31, 2018 due to rate promotions. Transaction accounts decreased $2.9 million, or 2.9%, to $95.8 million at March 31, 2019 from $98.7 million at December 31, 2018. Total borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York decreased $6.4 million, or 9.0%, to $65.4 million at March 31, 2019 from $71.8 million at December 31, 2018. Long-term borrowings decreased $184,000, or 0.3%, to $57.9 million at March 31, 2019 from $58.1 million at December 31, 2018 due to $6.2 million in principal repayments on our amortizing advances and maturities partially offset by $6.0 million in new advances. The Company decreased its short-term borrowings by $6.3 million, or 45.5%, to $7.5 million at March 31, 2019 compared to $13.8 million at December 31, 2018.

Stockholders’ Equity. Stockholders’ equity increased $170,000, or 0.5%, to $31.7 million at March 31, 2019 from $31.5 million at December 31, 2018. The increase was primarily due to $9,000 in net income, a $76,000 increase in additional paid in capital as a result of stock based compensation, an increase of $16,000 resulting from the release of ESOP shares from the suspense account, and a decrease of $69,000 in accumulated other comprehensive loss during the three months ended March 31, 2019 due to a change in the fair market value of our available-for-sale securities.

 

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 and 2018

 

General. Net income decreased $65,000, or 87.8%, to $9,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 from $74,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was attributable to decreases in other income of $274,000 and net interest income of $47,000, partially offset by decreases in other expense of $240,000 and provision for income taxes of $16,000.

 

Interest and Dividend Income. Total interest and dividend income increased $304,000, or 10.2%, to $3.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 from $3.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The increase resulted from a $15.5 million increase quarter over quarter in average interest-earning assets, primarily residential mortgage and commercial real estate loans, and a 19 basis point increase in the average yield earned on interest-earning assets from 4.01% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to 4.20% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 due to rising interest rates.

 

Interest income on loans increased $265,000, or 9.4%, to $3.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 from $2.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, reflecting a $14.0 million increase in the average balance of loans to $282.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $269.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, in addition to a 17 basis point increase in the average yield earned on loans for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018. The increase in the average balance of loans was due to our focus on increasing our residential mortgage and commercial loan portfolios during the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018. The average yield on loans increased to 4.37% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 4.20% for the three months ended March 31, 2018, reflecting increases in market interest rates on new loan products, primarily residential mortgages, commercial mortgages, and home equity lines of credit, in addition to upward repricing for adjustable rate loans in a rising interest rate environment.

 

Interest income on taxable investment securities increased $33,000, or 35.1%, to $127,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $94,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The average balance of taxable investment securities increased $2.1 million, or 15.3%, to $15.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $13.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The average yield on taxable investment securities increased 47 basis points to 3.26% during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 as compared to 2.79% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 due to new purchases of moderately higher-yielding investment securities replacing calls of slightly lower-yielding investment securities. Interest income on mortgage-backed securities decreased $11,000, or 27.5%, to $29,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, from $40,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 reflecting a decrease in the average yield on mortgage-backed securities of five basis points to 1.87% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 1.92% for the three months ended March 31, 2018, in addition to a decrease in the average balance of mortgage-backed securities of $2.1 million, or 25.5%, to $6.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $8.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in average yield on mortgage-backed securities was primarily attributable to faster prepayment speeds on the pools of mortgage-backed securities held in portfolio during the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018. A portion of the cash flow from these investment and mortgage-backed securities was redeployed to fund loan growth. Interest income on tax-exempt state and municipal securities remained unchanged at $26,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. The average balance of state and municipal securities decreased by $344,000, or 5.8%, from $5.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to $5.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The average tax equivalent yield on state and municipal securities increased 19 basis points to 2.38% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 2.19% for the three months ended March 31, 2018, as lower yielding state and municipal securities matured and were replaced by modestly higher yielding state and municipal securities. Interest income on Fed Funds sold increased $17,000, or 170.0%, to $27,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $10,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The increase in Fed Funds sold was attributable to an increase in the average yield on Fed Funds sold of 79 basis points to 2.12% during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 as compared to 1.33% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 due to the Federal Reserve’s increase of the Fed funds rate in addition to an increase in the average balance of Fed Funds sold of $1.9 million, or 62.9%, to $5.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $3.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Interest Expense. Total interest expense increased $351,000, or 41.6%, to $1.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 from $844,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Total interest expense reflected an increase in interest expense on deposits of $221,000 and an increase in interest expense on borrowings of $130,000 when comparing the quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. The total interest expense reflected an increase in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities of 45 basis points from 1.25% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to 1.70% for the three months ended March 31, 2019, in addition to an increase of $12.4 million in average interest-bearing liabilities.

 

Interest expense on deposits increased $221,000, or 39.3%, to $784,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $563,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The average cost of deposits increased to 1.47% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 1.09% for the three months ended March 31, 2018, primarily reflecting higher average balances on higher rate promotional certificates of deposit accounts, money market, and savings accounts offered during the first quarter of 2019. The average balance of deposits increased $5.8 million, or 2.8%, from $206.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to $212.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 also primarily due to higher rate promotional certificates of deposit and savings accounts offered in the first quarter of 2019. The average cost of certificates of deposit (including individual retirement accounts) increased to 2.02% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 1.53% for the three months ended March 31, 2018, in addition to an increase in the average balance of these accounts by $14.0 million to $128.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $114.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The average balance of transaction accounts, our core non-time deposit accounts, decreased by $5.9 million to $94.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $100.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, offset by an increase in the average cost of transaction accounts of eight basis points to 0.57% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 0.49% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 primarily due to promotional savings and money market accounts.

 

At March 31, 2019, we had $64.3 million of certificates of deposit, including individual retirement accounts, scheduled to mature throughout the remainder of 2019. Based on current market interest rates, we expect that the cost of these deposits upon renewal will be at a moderately higher cost to us than their current contractual rates.

 

Interest expense on borrowings increased $130,000 from $281,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 to $411,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, due to a $6.6 million increase in our average balance of borrowings with the Federal Home Loan Bank from $62.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to $68.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 in order to fund loans, along with an increase in the average cost of these funds from 1.81% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to 2.40% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as a result of an increase in market interest rates.

 

Net Interest Income. Net interest income decreased $47,000, or 2.2%, to $2.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 as compared to $2.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Net interest income decreased primarily due to an increase in the average balances and average cost of our interest-bearing liabilities, primarily certificates of deposit and FHLB borrowings, partially offset by higher average balances and average yields on our overall loan portfolio when comparing the quarter ended March 31, 2019 to the same period in 2018. Our net interest rate spread decreased 26 basis points to 2.50% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 from 2.76% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. There was a 45 basis point increase in the average cost of our interest-bearing liabilities from 1.25% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to 1.70% for the three months ended March 31, 2019, partially offset by a 19 basis point increase in the average yield on our interest-earning assets to 4.20% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 4.01% for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Our net interest margin decreased 20 basis points to 2.68% during the three months ended March 31, 2019 from 2.88% during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Provision for Loan Losses. We establish provisions for loan losses which are charged to operations in order to maintain the allowance for loan losses at a level we consider necessary to absorb credit losses inherent in the loan portfolio that are both probable and reasonably estimable at the consolidated balance sheet date. In determining the level of the allowance for loan losses, we consider past and current loss experience, evaluations of real estate collateral, current economic conditions, volume and type of lending, adverse situations that may affect a borrower’s ability to repay a loan, and the levels of non-performing and other classified loans. The amount of the allowance is based on estimates and the ultimate losses may vary from such estimates as more information becomes available or conditions change. We assess the allowance for loan losses on at least a quarterly basis and make provisions for loan losses in order to maintain the allowance.

 

 - 29 - 

 

 

Based on our evaluation of the above factors, we recorded a $75,000 provision for loan losses for the quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. The allowance for loan losses was $1.6 million, or 0.58% of net loans outstanding at March 31, 2019 compared to $1.3 million, or 0.50% of net loans outstanding, at March 31, 2018. The allowance for loan losses was $1.6 million, or 0.55% of net loans outstanding at December 31, 2018.

 

Other Income. Other income decreased by $274,000, or 41.0%, to $394,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to $668,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in other income was primarily attributable to decreases in realized gains on sales of loans and mortgage fee income. Realized gains on sales of loans decreased $178,000, or 51.2%, to $170,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $348,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in realized gains on sales of loans was primarily due to lower volume of mortgage loans sold in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018. Mortgage fee income decreased by $36,000, or 20.7%, to $138,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to $174,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 due to lower volume of residential mortgage loans originated in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018, partially offset by an increase in commercial loan fees.

 

Other Expense. Other expense decreased $240,000, or 9.1%, to $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $2.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in other expense of $240,000 was primarily due to decreases in salaries and employee benefits of $165,000 and other miscellaneous expenses of $39,000. Salaries and employee benefits decreased $165,000, or 10.1%, to $1.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $1.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 due to a decrease in commission expense due to lower volume of residential and commercial loan originations in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018. Other miscellaneous expense decreased $39,000, or 19.4%, to $162,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $201,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 due to a $25,000 decrease in legal fees in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018.

 

Income Taxes. Income tax expense decreased $16,000, or 88.9%, to $2,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 from $18,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018 was due to lower income before income taxes. The effective tax rate was 18.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to 19.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Rate/Volume Analysis

 

The following table presents the effects of changing rates and volumes on our net interest income for the periods indicated. The rate column shows the effects attributable to changes in rate (changes in rate multiplied by prior volume). The volume column shows the effects attributable to changes in volume (changes in volume multiplied by prior rate). The net column represents the sum of the prior columns. For purposes of these tables, changes attributable to both rate and volume, which cannot be segregated, have been allocated proportionately, based on the changes due to rate and the changes due to volume.

Loan and Asset Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses

 

The following table represents information concerning the aggregate amount of nonperforming assets at the indicated dates:

Nonperforming loans to total loans   0.18%   0.04%   0.03%
Nonperforming assets to total assets   0.15%   0.03%   0.03%

 

Nonperforming assets include nonaccrual loans, non-accruing TDRs, and foreclosed real estate. The Company generally places a loan on nonaccrual status and ceases accruing interest when loan payment performance is deemed unsatisfactory and the loan is past due 90 days or more. At March 31, 2019 there was one home equity line of credit for $146,000 that was past due 90 days or more and still accruing interest. Loans are considered modified in a TDR when, due to a borrower’s financial difficulties, the Company makes a concession(s) to the borrower that it would not otherwise consider. These modifications may include, among others, an extension of the term of the loan, and granting a period when interest-only payments can be made, with the principal payments made over the remaining term of the loan or at maturity. At the dates indicated above, the Company had no TDRs outstanding.

 

As indicated in the table above, nonperforming assets at March 31, 2019 were $494,000, an increase of $394,000, or 394.0%, from $100,000 at December 31, 2018. At March 31, 2019, the Company had one non-performing commercial real estate loan for $248,000, one non-performing home equity line of credit for $146,000, one non-performing residential mortgage loan for $55,000 and one non-performing commercial and industrial loan for $45,000 and at December 31, 2018, the Company had one non-performing residential mortgage loan for $55,000 and one non-performing commercial and industrial loan for $45,000. At March 31, 2018, the Company had two non-performing residential mortgage loans for $91,000. At the dates indicated above, the Company had no foreclosed real estate.

 

The allowance for loan losses represents management’s estimate of the probable losses inherent in the loan portfolio as of the date of the consolidated balance sheet. The allowance for loan losses was $1.6 million at March 31, 2019 and $1.6 million at December 31, 2018. The Company reported an increase in the ratio of the allowance for loan losses to gross loans to 0.58% at March 31, 2019 as compared to 0.55% at December 31, 2018. Management performs a quarterly evaluation of the allowance for loan losses based on quantitative and qualitative factors and has determined that the current level of the allowance for loan losses is adequate to absorb the losses in the loan portfolio as of March 31, 2019.

 

A loan is considered impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable that the Bank will be unable to collect the scheduled payments of principal or interest when due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. Factors considered by management in determining impairment include payment status, collateral value, and the probability of collecting scheduled principal and interest payments when due. Loans that experience insignificant payment delays and payment shortfalls generally are not classified as impaired. Management determines the significance of payment delays and payment shortfalls on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration all of the circumstances surrounding the loan and the borrower, including the length of the delay, the reasons for the delay, the borrower’s prior payment record, and the amount of the shortfall in relation to the principal and interest owed. Impairment is measured on a loan by loan basis by either the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective interest rate or the fair value of the collateral if the loan is collateral dependent.

Large groups of smaller balance homogeneous loans are collectively evaluated for impairment. Accordingly, the Company does not separately identify individual consumer and residential loans for impairment disclosures unless subject to a troubled debt restructuring.

 

At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company did not have loans which were deemed to be impaired.

 

Management has identified potential credit problems which may result in the borrowers not being able to comply with the current loan repayment terms and which may result in it being included in future impaired loan reporting. Management has identified potential problem loans totaling $5.2 million as of March 31, 2019 as compared to $4.8 million at December 31, 2018. These loans have been internally classified as special mention, substandard, or doubtful, yet are not currently considered impaired. Total potential problem loans increased between these two dates, as the Company reported an increase of $462,000 in loans rated special mention. The increase in loans classified as special mention was due to one commercial mortgage loan newly categorized as such during the three months ended March 31, 2019, partially offset by one residential mortgage loan payoff. The commercial real estate loan was not classified as of December 31, 2018. Based on current information available at March 31, 2019, these loans were re-evaluated for their range of potential losses and reclassified accordingly.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability to meet current and future financial obligations of a short-term nature. Our cash flows are derived from operating activities, investing activities and financing activities as reported in our consolidated statements of cash flows included in our consolidated financial statements.

 

Our primary sources of funds consist of deposit inflows, loan repayments, borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, maturities and principal repayments of securities, and loan and securities sales. While maturities and scheduled amortization of loans and securities are predictable sources of funds, deposit flows and mortgage prepayments are greatly influenced by general interest rates, economic conditions and competition. Our asset/liability management committee is responsible for establishing and monitoring our liquidity targets and strategies in order to ensure that sufficient liquidity exists for meeting the borrowing needs and deposit withdrawals of our customers as well as unanticipated contingencies. We seek to maintain a liquidity ratio of 20.0% or greater. For the quarter ended March 31, 2019, our liquidity ratio averaged 30.0%. We believe that we have enough sources of liquidity to satisfy our short and long-term liquidity needs as of March 31, 2019.

 

We regularly adjust our investments in liquid assets based upon our assessment of:

 

(i)expected loan demand;

 

(ii)expected deposit flows;

 

(iii)yields available on interest-earning deposits and securities; and

 

(iv)the objectives of our asset/liability management program.

 

Excess liquid assets are invested generally in interest-earning deposits, short and intermediate-term securities and federal funds sold. Our most liquid assets are cash and cash equivalents. The levels of these assets are dependent on our operating, financing, lending and investing activities during any given period. At March 31, 2019, cash and cash equivalents totaled $6.3 million.

 

At March 31, 2019, we had $11.8 million in loan commitments outstanding. In addition to commitments to originate loans, we had $19.0 million in unused lines of credit outstanding to borrowers. Certificates of deposit (including individual retirement accounts comprised solely of certificates of deposit), due within one year of March 31, 2019 totaled $85.9 million, or 66.3% of our certificates of deposit (including individual retirement accounts) and 38.1% of total deposits. If these deposits do not remain with us, we will be required to seek other sources of funds, including loan sales, other deposit products, and Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings. Depending on market conditions, we may be required to pay higher rates on such deposits or other borrowings than we currently pay on the existing certificates of deposit due on or before March 31, 2020. We believe, however, based on past experience that a significant portion of such deposits will remain with us. We have the ability to attract and retain deposits by adjusting the interest rates offered.

Liquidity management is both a daily and long-term function of business management. If we require funds beyond our ability to generate them internally, borrowing agreements exist with the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, which provides an additional source of funds. Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings decreased by $6.4 million, to $65.4 million at March 31, 2019, from $71.8 million at December 31, 2018. At March 31, 2019, we had the ability to borrow approximately $170.1 million from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, of which $65.4 million had been advanced.

 

We also have a repurchase agreement with Raymond James providing an additional $10.0 million in liquidity. Funds obtained under the repurchase agreement are secured by the Company’s U.S. Government and agency obligations. There were no advances outstanding under the repurchase agreement at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018. In addition to the repurchase agreement with Raymond James, we also have an unsecured line of credit through Atlantic Community Bankers Bank which would provide and additional $5.0 million in liquidity. There were no draws or outstanding balances from the line of credit at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

 

Capital

 

Fairport Savings Bank is subject to various regulatory capital requirements, including a risk-based capital measure. The risk-based capital guidelines include both a definition of capital and a framework for calculating risk-weighted assets by assigning balance sheet assets and off-balance sheet items to broad risk categories. At March 31, 2019, Fairport Savings Bank exceeded all regulatory capital requirements and was considered “well capitalized” under regulatory guidelines.

 

In addition to establishing the minimum regulatory capital requirements, the regulations limit capital distributions and certain discretionary bonus payments to management if the institution does not hold a "capital conservation buffer" consisting of 2.5% of common equity Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets above the amount necessary to meet its minimum risk-based capital requirements. 

 

As a result of the recently enacted Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, the federal banking agencies are required to develop a “Community Bank Leverage Ratio” (the ratio of a bank’s tangible equity capital to average total consolidated assets) for financial institutions with assets of less than $10 billion.  A “qualifying community bank” that exceeds this ratio will be deemed to be in compliance with all other capital and leverage requirements, including the capital requirements to be considered “well capitalized” under Prompt Corrective Action statutes.  The federal banking agencies may consider a financial institution’s risk profile when evaluating whether it qualifies as a community bank for purposes of the capital ratio requirement. The federal banking agencies must set the minimum capital for the new Community Bank Leverage Ratio at not less than 8% and not more than 10%.  The federal banking agencies have proposed the Community Bank Leverage Ratio be set at 9%. A financial institution can elect to be subject to this new definition. However, until the federal banking agencies finalize the proposed rule, the Basel III rules remain in effect.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

In the ordinary course of business, Fairport Savings Bank is a party to credit-related financial instruments with off-balance sheet risk to meet the financing needs of our customers. These financial instruments include commitments to extend credit. We follow the same credit policies in making commitments as we do for on-balance sheet instruments.

 

Commitments to extend credit are agreements to lend to a customer as long as there is no violation of any condition established in the contract. Commitments generally have fixed expiration dates or other termination clauses and may require payment of a fee. The commitments for equity lines of credit may expire without being drawn upon. Therefore, the total commitment amounts do not necessarily represent future cash requirements. The amount of collateral obtained, if it is deemed necessary by us, is based on our credit evaluation of the customer.

 

At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, we had $7.0 million and $5.6 million, respectively, of commitments to grant loans, $4.8 million and $4.4 million, respectively, of unadvanced portions of construction loans, and $19.0 million and $18.8 million, respectively, of unfunded commitments under lines of credit. We had three commercial letters of credit for $64,000 at March 31, 2019 and three commercial letters of credit for $64,000 at December 31, 2018.

 

Impact of Inflation and Changing Prices

 

Our consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). GAAP generally requires the measurement of financial position and operating results in terms of historical dollars without consideration for changes in the relative purchasing power of money over time due to inflation. The impact of inflation is reflected in the increased cost of our operations. Unlike industrial companies, our assets and liabilities are primarily monetary in nature. As a result, changes in market interest rates have a greater impact on performance than the effects of inflation.

Item 3 – Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

A smaller reporting company is not required to provide the information relating to this item.

 

Item 4 – Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are the controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

The Company maintains controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission. As of March 31, 2019, the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive Officer) and Chief Financial Officer (Principal Financial Officer), has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must necessarily reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

 

There has been no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the first quarter of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
