PEOPLES FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the three Months Ended March 31, 2019 and 2018

1. Basis of Presentation:

Peoples Financial Corporation (the “Company”) is a one-bank holding company headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. The Company has two operating subsidiaries, PFC Service Corp., an inactive company, and The Peoples Bank, Biloxi, Mississippi (the “Bank”). The Bank provides a full range of banking, financial and trust services to state, county and local government entities and individuals and small and commercial businesses operating in those portions of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama which are within a fifty mile radius of the Waveland, Wiggins and Gautier branches, the Bank’s three most outlying locations (the “trade area”).

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contain all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), the financial position of the Company and its subsidiaries as of March 31, 2019 and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the periods presented. The interim financial information should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s 2018 Annual Report and Form 10-K.

The results of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Material estimates common to the banking industry that are particularly susceptible to significant change in the near term include, but are not limited to, the determination of the allowance for loan losses, the valuation of other real estate acquired in connection with foreclosure or in satisfaction of loans and valuation allowances associated with the realization of deferred tax assets, which are based on future taxable income.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to GAAP and general practices within the banking industry. There have been no material changes or developments in the application of principles or in our evaluation of the accounting estimates and the underlying assumptions or methodologies that we believe to be Critical Accounting Policies as disclosed in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

10


Accounting Standards Update 2016-13 (“ASU 2016-13”), Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, is intended to provide financial statement users with more decision-useful information related to expected credit losses on financial instruments and other commitments to extend credit by replacing the current incurred loss impairment methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to determine credit loss estimates. ASU 2016-13 is effective for the Company for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and the Company intends to adopt ASU 2016-13 during the first quarter of 2020. The Company’s Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) Committee continues to evaluate the impact this ASU will have on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and financial statement disclosures and determine the most appropriate method of implementing this ASU. Management will continue to evaluate the impact this ASU will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements through its effective date.

2. Earnings Per Share:

Per share data is based on the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding of 4,943,186 and 5,080,514 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

3. Statements of Cash Flows:

The Company has defined cash and cash equivalents as cash and due from banks. The Company paid $852,975 and $489,389 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, for interest on deposits and borrowings. No income tax payments were made during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. Loans transferred to other real estate amounted to $369,054 and $753,674 during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment on a monthly basis. In performing this evaluation, the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than cost, the fact that the Company’s securities are primarily issued by U.S. Treasury and U.S. Government Agencies and the cause of the decline in value are considered. In addition, the Company does not intend to sell and it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell these securities before maturity. While some available for sale securities have been sold for liquidity purposes or for gains, the Company has traditionally held its securities, including those classified as available for sale, until maturity. As a result of the evaluation of these securities, the Company has determined that the unrealized losses summarized in the tables above are not deemed to be other-than-temporary.

There were no sales or calls of available for sale debt securities during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

Securities with a fair value of $236,946,244 and $206,017,056 at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, were pledged to secure public deposits, federal funds purchased and other balances required by law.

The Company monitors the credit quality of its loan portfolio through the use of a loan grading system. A score of 1 – 5 is assigned to the loan based on factors including repayment ability, trends in net worth and/or financial condition of the borrower and guarantors, employment stability, management ability, loan to value fluctuations, the type and structure of the loan, conformity of the loan to bank policy and payment performance. Based on the total score, a loan grade of A, B, C, S, D, E or F is applied. A grade of A will generally be applied to loans for customers that are well known to the Company and that have excellent sources of repayment. A grade of B will generally be applied to loans for customers that have excellent sources of repayment which have no identifiable risk of collection. A grade of C will generally be applied to loans for customers that have adequate sources of repayment which have little identifiable risk of collection. A grade of S will generally be applied to loans for customers who meet the criteria for a grade of C but who also warrant additional monitoring by placement on the watch list. A grade of D will generally be applied to loans for customers that are inadequately protected by current sound net worth, paying capacity of the borrower, or pledged collateral. Loans with a grade of D have unsatisfactory characteristics such as cash flow deficiencies, bankruptcy filing by the borrower or dependence on the sale of collateral for the primary source of repayment, causing more than acceptable levels of risk. Loans 60 to 89 days past due receive a grade of D. A grade

of E will generally be applied to loans for customers with weaknesses inherent in the “D” classification and in which collection or liquidation in full is questionable. In addition, on a monthly basis the Company determines which loans are 90 days or more past due and assigns a grade of E to them. A grade of F is applied to loans which are considered uncollectible and of such little value that their continuance in an active bank is not warranted. Loans with this grade are charged off, even though partial or full recovery may be possible in the future.

7. Deposits:

Time deposits of $250,000 or more totaled approximately $43,011,000 and $32,137,000 at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

8. Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures:

The Company utilizes fair value measurements to record fair value adjustments to certain assets and liabilities and to determine fair value disclosures. Available for sale securities are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. Additionally, from time to time, the Company may be required to record other assets at fair value on a non-recurring basis, such as impaired loans and ORE. These non-recurring fair value adjustments typically involve application of lower of cost or market accounting or write-downs of individual assets. Additionally, the Company is required to disclose, but not record, the fair value of other financial instruments.

Fair Value Hierarchy

The Company groups assets and liabilities at fair value in three levels, based on the markets in which the assets and liabilities are traded and the reliability of the assumptions used to determine fair value. These levels are:

Level 1 - Valuation is based upon quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets.

Level 2 - Valuation is based upon quoted market prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market.

Level 3 - Valuation is generated from model-based techniques that use at least one significant assumption not observable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Valuation techniques include the use of option pricing models, discounted cash flow models and similar techniques.

Following is a description of valuation methodologies used to determine the fair value of financial assets and liabilities.

Cash and Due from Banks

The carrying amount shown as cash and due from banks approximates fair value.

Available for Sale Securities

The fair value of available for sale securities is based on quoted market prices. The Company’s available for sale securities are reported at their estimated fair value, which is determined utilizing several sources. The primary source is Interactive Data Corporation, which utilizes pricing models that vary based on asset class and include available trade, bid and other market information and whose methodology includes broker quotes, proprietary models and vast descriptive databases. Another source for determining fair value is matrix pricing, which is a mathematical technique used widely in the industry to value debt securities without relying exclusively on quoted prices

 

22


for the specific securities but rather by relying on the securities’ relationship to other benchmark securities. The Company’s available for sale securities for which fair value is determined through the use of such pricing models and matrix pricing are classified as Level 2 assets. If the fair value of available for sale securities is generated through model-based techniques, including the discounting of estimated cash flows, such securities are classified as Level 3 assets.

Held to Maturity Securities

The fair value of held to maturity securities is based on quoted market prices.

Other Investments

The carrying amount shown as other investments approximates fair value.

Federal Home Loan Bank Stock

The carrying amount shown as Federal Home Loan Bank Stock approximates fair value.

Loans

The fair value of fixed rate loans is estimated by discounting the future cash flows using the current rates at which similar loans would be made to borrowers with similar credit ratings for the remaining maturities. The cash flows considered in computing the fair value of such loans are segmented into categories relating to the nature of the contract and collateral based on contractual principal maturities. Appropriate adjustments are made to reflect probable credit losses. Cash flows have not been adjusted for such factors as prepayment risk or the effect of the maturity of balloon notes. The fair value of floating rate loans is estimated to be its carrying value. At each reporting period, the Company determines which loans are impaired. Accordingly, the Company’s impaired loans are reported at their estimated fair value on a non-recurring basis. An allowance for each impaired loan, which are generally collateral-dependent, is calculated based on the fair value of its collateral. The fair value of the collateral is based on appraisals performed by third-party valuation specialists. Factors including the assumptions and techniques utilized by the appraiser are considered by Management. If the recorded investment in the impaired loan exceeds the measure of fair value of the collateral, a valuation allowance is recorded as a component of the allowance for loan losses. Impaired loans are non-recurring Level 3 assets.

Other Real Estate

In the course of lending operations, Management may determine that it is necessary to foreclose on the related collateral. Other real estate acquired through foreclosure is carried at fair value, less estimated costs to sell. The fair value of the collateral is based on appraisals performed by third-party valuation specialists. Factors including the assumptions and techniques utilized by the appraiser are considered by Management. If the current appraisal is more than one year old and/or the loan balance is more than $200,000, a new appraisal is obtained. Otherwise, the Bank uses a third-party desktop appraisal service to determine the fair value of the collateral, based on comparable sales, market conditions, Management’s plans for disposition and other estimates of fair value obtained from principally independent sources, adjusted for estimated selling costs. Other real estate is a non-recurring Level 3 asset.

 

23


Cash Surrender Value of Life Insurance

The carrying amount of cash surrender value of bank-owned life insurance approximates fair value.

Deposits

The fair value of non-interest bearing demand and interest bearing savings and demand deposits is the amount reported in the financial statements. The fair value of time deposits is estimated by discounting the cash flows using current rates of time deposits with similar remaining maturities. The cash flows considered in computing the fair value of such deposits are based on contractual maturities, since approximately 98% of time deposits provide for automatic renewal at current interest rates.

Borrowings from Federal Home Loan Bank

The fair value of Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) fixed rate borrowings is estimated using discounted cash flows based on current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements. The fair value of FHLB variable rate borrowings is estimated to be its carrying value.

Item 2: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

GENERAL

The Company is a one-bank holding company headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. The Company has two operating subsidiaries, PFC Service Corp., an inactive company, and The Peoples Bank, Biloxi, Mississippi (the “Bank”). The Bank provides a full range of banking, financial and trust services to state, county and local government entities and individuals and small and commercial businesses operating in those portions of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama which are within a fifty mile radius of the Waveland, Wiggins and Gautier branches, the Bank’s three most outlying locations (the “trade area”).

The following presents Management’s discussion and analysis of the consolidated financial condition and results of operations of Peoples Financial Corporation and Subsidiaries. These comments should be considered in combination with the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report on Form 10-Q and the Consolidated Financial Statements, Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Forward-Looking Information

Congress passed the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995 in an effort to encourage corporations to provide information about a company’s anticipated future financial performance. This act provides a safe harbor for such disclosure which protects the companies from unwarranted litigation if actual results are different from management expectations. This report contains forward-looking statements and reflects industry conditions, company performance and financial results. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties which could cause the Company’s actual results and experience to differ from the anticipated results and expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements. Such factors and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: changes in interest rates and market prices, changes in local economic and business conditions, increased competition for deposits and loans, a deviation in actual experience from the underlying assumptions used to determine and establish the allowance for loan losses, changes in the availability of funds resulting from reduced liquidity, changes in government regulations and acts of terrorism, weather or other events beyond the Company’s control.

New Accounting Pronouncements

The Company is in the process of determining the effect of Accounting Standards Update 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which will be effective for the Company on January 1, 2020, on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows. Further disclosure relating to these efforts in included in Note A.

 

28


Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires Management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company evaluates these estimates and assumptions on an on-going basis using historical experience and other factors, including the current economic environment. We adjust such estimates and assumptions when facts and circumstances dictate. Certain critical accounting policies affect the more significant estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

Investments

Investments which are classified as available for sale are stated at fair value.    A decline in the market value of an investment below cost that is deemed to be other-than-temporary is charged to earnings for the decline in value deemed to be credit related and a new cost basis in the security is established. The decline in value attributed to non-credit related factors is recognized in other comprehensive income. The determination of the fair value of securities may require Management to develop estimates and assumptions regarding the amount and timing of cash flows.

Allowance for loan losses

The Company’s most critical accounting policy relates to its allowance for loan losses (“ALL”), which reflects the estimated losses resulting from the inability of its borrowers to make loan payments. The ALL is established and maintained at an amount sufficient to cover the estimated loss associated with the loan portfolio of the Company as of the date of the financial statements. Credit losses arise not only from credit risk, but also from other risks inherent in the lending process including, but not limited to, collateral risk, operation risk, concentration risk and economic risk. As such, all related risks of lending are considered when assessing the adequacy of the ALL. On a quarterly basis, Management estimates the probable level of losses to determine whether the allowance is adequate to absorb reasonably foreseeable, anticipated losses in the existing portfolio based on our past loan loss experience, known and inherent risk in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrowers’ ability to repay and the estimated value of any underlying collateral and current economic conditions. Management believes that the ALL is adequate and appropriate for all periods presented in these financial statements. If there was a deterioration of any of the factors considered by Management in evaluating the ALL, the estimate of loss would be updated, and additional provisions for loan losses may be required. The analysis divides the portfolio into two segments: a pool analysis of loans based upon a five year average loss history which is updated on a quarterly basis and which may be adjusted by qualitative factors by loan type and a specific reserve analysis for those loans considered impaired under GAAP. All credit relationships with an outstanding balance of $100,000 or greater that are included in Management’s loan watch list are individually reviewed for impairment. All losses are charged to the ALL when the loss actually occurs or when a determination is made that a loss is likely to occur; recoveries are credited to the ALL at the time of receipt.

 

29


Other Real Estate

Other real estate (“ORE”) includes real estate acquired through foreclosure. Each other real estate property is carried at fair value, less estimated costs to sell. Fair value is principally based on appraisals performed by third-party valuation specialists.    If Management determines that the fair value of a property has decreased subsequent to foreclosure, the Company records a write down which is included in non-interest expense.

Employee Benefit Plans

Employee benefit plan liabilities and pension costs are determined utilizing actuarially determined present value calculations. The valuation of the benefit obligation and net periodic expense is considered critical, as it requires Management and its actuaries to make estimates regarding the amount and timing of expected cash outflows including assumptions about mortality, expected service periods and the rate of compensation increases.

Income Taxes

GAAP requires the asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for deferred income taxes. We use the asset and liability method of accounting for deferred income taxes and provide deferred income taxes for all significant income tax temporary differences. As part of the process of preparing our consolidated financial statements, the Company is required to estimate our income taxes in each of the jurisdictions in which we operate. This process involves estimating our actual current tax exposure together with assessing temporary differences resulting from differing treatment of items, such as the provision for loan losses, for tax and financial reporting purposes. These differences result in deferred tax assets and liabilities that are included in our consolidated statement of condition. We must also assess the likelihood that our deferred tax assets will be recovered from future taxable income, and to the extent we believe that recovery is not likely, we must establish a valuation allowance. Significant management judgment is required in determining our provision for income taxes, our deferred tax assets and liabilities and any valuation allowance recorded against our net deferred tax assets. To the extent the Company establishes a valuation allowance or adjusts this allowance in a period, we must include an expense or a benefit within the tax provisions in the consolidated statement of income.

GAAP Reconciliation and Explanation

This Form 10-Q contains non-GAAP financial measures determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. Such non-GAAP financial measures include taxable equivalent interest income and taxable equivalent net interest income. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they are useful for evaluating our operations and performance over periods of time, as well as in managing and evaluating our business and in discussions about our operations and performance. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide users of our financial information with a meaningful measure for assessing our financial results, as well as comparison to financial results for prior periods. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled financial measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of these operating performance measures to GAAP performance measures for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 is included in the table on the following page.

OVERVIEW

The Company is a community bank serving the financial and trust needs of its customers in our trade area, which is defined as those portions of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama which are within a fifty mile radius of the Waveland, Wiggins and Gautier branches, the bank subsidiary’s three most outlying locations. Maintaining a strong core deposit base and providing commercial and real estate lending in our trade area are the traditional focuses of the Company. Growth has largely been achieved through de novo branching activity, and it is expected that these strategies will continue to be emphasized in the future.

The Company reported net income of $405,000 for the first quarter of 2019 compared with net income of $292,000 for the first quarter of 2018. Results in 2019 included the increase in net interest income which was partially offset by a decrease in non-interest income and increase in non-interest expense as compared with 2018.

Managing the net interest margin is a key component of the Company’s earnings strategy. Interest income increased as interest and fees on loans increased $456,000 and interest income on mortgage-backed securities increased $272,000 as compared with 2018. This increase was partially offset by the increase in interest expense of $384,000.

Monitoring asset quality, estimating potential losses in our loan portfolio and addressing non-performing loans continue to be a major focus of the Company. A provision for the allowance for loan losses of $54,000 was recorded in 2019 as compared with $35,000 in 2018. The Company is working diligently to address and reduce its non-performing assets. The Company’s nonaccrual loans totaled $6,102,000 and $8,250,000 at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. Most of these loans are collateral-dependent, and the Company has rigorously evaluated the value of its collateral to determine potential losses.

 

31


Non-interest income decreased $96,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared with 2018 results. Trust department income and fees decreased $62,000 for 2019 and service charges on deposit accounts decreased $29,000 as compared with 2018.

Non-interest expense increased $123,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared with 2018 results. This increase for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was primarily the result of the decrease in salaries and employee benefits of $95,000 and other real estate expense of $70,000, while equipment rentals, depreciation and maintenance expenses increased $75,000 and other expense increased $119,000 in 2019 as compared with 2018.

Total assets at March 31, 2019 increased $16,175,000 as compared with December 31, 2018. Total deposits increased $47,831,000 as governmental entities’ balances increased due to tax collections. This increase in funds resulted in the decrease in borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of $35,074,000 and the increase in cash and due from banks of $21,896,000.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net Interest Income

Net interest income, the amount by which interest income on loans, investments and other interest- earning assets exceeds interest expense on deposits and other borrowed funds, is the single largest component of the Company’s income. Management’s objective is to provide the largest possible amount of income while balancing interest rate, credit, liquidity and capital risk. Changes in the volume and mix of interest earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities combined with changes in market rates of interest directly affect net interest income.

The Company’s average interest earning assets decreased approximately $18,448,000, or 3%, from approximately $584,972,000 for the first quarter of 2018 to approximately $566,524,000 for the first quarter of 2019. The Company’s average balance sheet decreased primarily as average loans decreased approximately $8,170,000 and average taxable available for sale securities decreased approximately $18,611,000 while balances due from financial institutions increased $7,811,000 for the first quarter of 2019 as compared with the first quarter of 2018. Average loans decreased as principal payments, maturities, charge-offs and foreclosures relating to existing loans outpaced new loans. Average taxable available for sale securities decreased as average deposits decreased for the same time periods. Average balances due from financial institutions increased as the Company manages its liquidity position.

 

32


The average yield on interest-earning assets increased from 3.30% for the first quarter of 2018 to 3.92% for the first quarter of 2019. This increase is primarily the result of the yield on average loans increasing as a result of the increase in prime rate in 2018 as well the recovery of $135,000 in interest income on a previously non-performing loan.

Average interest-bearing liabilities decreased approximately $17,223,000, or 4%, from approximately $428,776,000 for the first quarter of 2018 to approximately $411,553,000 for the first quarter of 2019. Average savings and interest bearing DDA decreased $26,366,000 primarily as several large customers reallocated their funds to other institutions.    

The average rate paid on interest bearing liabilities for the first quarter of 2018 was .46% as compared with .86% for the first quarter of 2019. This increase is primarily due to increases in rates by the Federal Reserve Bank in 2018.    

The Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis, which is net interest income as a percentage of average earning assets, was 2.96% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 and 3.30% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

The tables on the following pages analyze the changes in tax-equivalent net interest income for the quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

Provision for Loan Losses

In the normal course of business, the Company assumes risk in extending credit to its customers. This credit risk is managed through compliance with the loan policy, which is approved by the Board of Directors. The policy establishes guidelines relating to underwriting standards, including but not limited to financial analysis, collateral valuation, lending limits, pricing considerations and loan grading. The Company’s Loan Review and Special Assets Departments play key roles in monitoring the loan portfolio and managing problem loans. New loans and, on a periodic basis, existing loans are reviewed to evaluate compliance with the loan policy. Loan customers in concentrated industries such as gaming and hotel/motel, as well as the exposure for out of area;

 

35


residential and land development; construction and commercial real estate loans, and their direct and indirect impact on its operations are evaluated on a monthly basis. Loan delinquencies and deposit overdrafts are closely monitored in order to identify developing problems as early as possible. Lenders experienced in workout scenarios consult with loan officers and customers to address non-performing loans. A watch list of credits which pose a potential loss to the Company is prepared based on the loan grading system. This list forms the foundation of the Company’s allowance for loan loss computation.

Management relies on its guidelines and existing methodology to monitor the performance of its loan portfolio and identify and estimate potential losses based on the best available information. The potential effect of the continuing decline in real estate values and actual losses incurred by the Company were key factors in our analysis. Much of the Company’s loan portfolio is collateral-dependent, requiring careful consideration of changes in the value of the collateral.

The Company’s analysis includes evaluating the current values of collateral securing all nonaccrual loans. Even though nonaccrual loans were $6,102,000 and $8,250,000 at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, specific reserves of only $326,000 and $315,000, respectively, have been allocated to these loans as collateral values appear sufficient to cover loan losses or the loan balances have been charged down to their realizable value.

The Company’s on-going, systematic evaluation resulted in the Company recording a provision for loan losses of $54,000 and $35,000 for the first quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans was 2.01% and 1.95% at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. The Company believes that its allowance for loan losses is appropriate as of March 31, 2019.

The allowance for loan losses is an estimate, and as such, events may occur in the future which may affect its accuracy. The Company anticipates that it is possible that additional information will be gathered in future quarters which may require an adjustment to the allowance for loan losses. Management will continue to closely monitor its portfolio and take such action as it deems appropriate to accurately report its financial condition and results of operations.

Non-interest income

Non-interest income decreased $96,000 for the first quarter of 2019 as compared with the first quarter of 2018 primarily as Trust department income and fees decreased $62,000 and service charges on deposit accounts decreased $29,000.

Trust income decreased due to the decrease in account relationships in 2019.

Service charges on deposits decreased primarily as NSF fees on personal accounts decreased.

 

36


Non-interest expense

Total non-interest expense increased $123,000 for the first quarter of 2019 as compared with the first quarter of 2018. Salaries and employee benefits decreased $95,000 and other real estate expenses decreased $70,000 while equipment rentals, depreciation and maintenance increased $75,000, the loss from other investments increased $21,000 and other expenses increased $119,000 for the first quarter of 2019 as compared with the first quarter of 2018.

Salaries decreased as a result of attrition.

Equipment rentals, depreciation and maintenance increased as a result of the Company’s upgrade of its data processing.

Other real estate expense decreased as maintenance and repairs on ORE have decreased in the current year.

The loss from other investments relates to income or loss from operations of an investment in a low-income housing partnership. In 2019, occupancy rates have decreased, which resulted in a larger loss.

Other expense primarily increased in 2019 as the Company engaged consultants to assist with several projects relating to operations and strategic planning in the current year.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Cash and due from banks increased $21,896,000 at March 31, 2019, compared with December 31, 2018 in the management of the bank subsidiary’s liquidity position.

Loans decreased $5,854,000 at March 31, 2019 as compared with December 31, 2018 as principal payments, maturities, charge-offs and foreclosures on existing loans exceeded new loans.

Total deposits increased $47,831,000 at March 31, 2019, as compared with December 31, 2018. Typically, significant increases or decreases in total deposits and/or significant fluctuations among the different types of deposits from quarter to quarter are anticipated by Management as customers in the casino industry and county and municipal entities reallocate their resources periodically. Deposits from county and municipal entities increased significantly during the first quarter of each year based on property tax collections.

Borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank decreased $35,074,000 at March 31, 2019 compared with December 31, 2018 as the Company utilized funds from increased deposits to reduce borrowings.

 

37


SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY AND CAPITAL ADEQUACY

Strength, security and stability have been the hallmark of the Company since its founding in 1985 and of its bank subsidiary since its founding in 1896. A strong capital foundation is fundamental to the continuing prosperity of the Company and the security of its customers and shareholders.

As of March 31, 2019, the most recent notification from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation categorized the bank subsidiary as well capitalized under the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action. To be categorized as well capitalized, the bank subsidiary must have a Total risk-based capital ratio of 10.00% or greater, a Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio of 6.50% or greater, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 8.00% or greater and a Leverage capital ratio of 5.00% or greater. As of January 1, 2019, the Company must have a capital conservation buffer above these requirements of 2.50%. There are no conditions or events since that notification that Management believes have changed the bank subsidiary’s category.

The Company’s actual capital amounts and ratios and required minimum capital amounts and ratios as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, are as follows (in thousands):

Management continues to emphasize the importance of maintaining the appropriate capital levels of the Company and has established the goal of being “well-capitalized” by the banking regulatory authorities.

LIQUIDITY

Liquidity represents the Company’s ability to adequately provide funds to satisfy demands from depositors, borrowers and other commitments by either converting assets to cash or accessing new or existing sources of funds. Management monitors these funds requirements in such a manner as to satisfy these demands and provide the maximum earnings on its earning assets. The Company manages and monitors its liquidity position through a number of methods, including through the computation of liquidity risk targets and the preparation of various analyses of its funding sources and utilization of those sources on a monthly basis. The Company also uses proforma liquidity projections which are updated on a monthly basis in the management of its liquidity needs and also conducts periodic contingency testing on its liquidity plan.

Deposits, payments of principal and interest on loans, proceeds from maturities of investment securities and earnings on investment securities are the principal sources of funds for the Company. Borrowings from the FHLB, federal funds sold and federal funds purchased are utilized by the Company to manage its daily liquidity position. The Company has also been approved to participate in the Federal Reserve Bank’s Discount Window Primary Credit Program, which it intends to use only as a contingency.

REGULATORY MATTERS

During 2016, Management identified opportunities for improving information technology operations and security, risk management and earnings, addressing asset quality concerns, analyzing and assessing the Bank’s management and staffing needs, and managing concentrations of credit risk as a result of its own investigation as well as examinations performed by certain bank regulatory agencies. In concert with the regulators, the Company had identified specific corrective steps and actions to enhance its information technology operations and security, risk management, earnings, asset quality and staffing. The Company and the Bank may not declare or pay any cash dividends without the prior written approval of their regulators.

Item 4: Controls and Procedures

As of March 31, 2019, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e)). Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports it 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.

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the period ended March 31, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
