C&F Financial Corporation Announces Third Quarter Net Income

WEST POINT, Va., Oct. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C&F Financial Corporation (the Corporation) (NASDAQ:CFFI), the one-bank holding company for C&F Bank (the Bank), today reported third quarter net income of $3.1 million in 2016, or $0.91 per common share assuming dilution, compared with $3.5 million, or $1.02 per common share assuming dilution, for the third quarter of 2015. The Corporation reported net income of $10.3 million for the first nine months of 2016, or $2.99 per common share assuming dilution, compared with $10.2 million, or $3.01 per common share assuming dilution, for the first nine months of 2015.  Earnings in 2016 included one-time revenue items during the second quarter associated with a contract amendment for one of the Bank’s debit card programs ($237,000 after tax), the Bank’s bank-owned life insurance (BOLI) program ($493,000 after tax) and a gain on the sale of a Bank-owned property ($92,000 after tax).

For the third quarter of 2016, the Corporation’s annualized return on average common equity (ROE) and annualized return on average assets (ROA) were 9.13 percent and 0.90 percent, respectively, compared to 10.87 percent ROE and 1.01 percent ROA for the third quarter of 2015.  For the first nine months of 2016, on an annualized basis, the Corporation’s ROE and ROA were 10.19 percent and 0.98 percent, respectively, compared to 10.84 percent and 1.00 percent, respectively, for the first nine months of 2015.

The decreases in ROE and ROA for the first nine months of 2016, compared to the same period in 2015, resulted from average capital and average asset growth since September 2015, which outpaced the increase in net income during 2016.  The decline in net income during the third quarter of 2016, coupled with average capital and average asset growth, resulted in the decreases in ROE and ROA for the third quarter of 2016, compared to the same period in 2015.

“The Corporation’s net income for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 included the strong financial performances of the retail banking and mortgage banking segments, which were able to mitigate the effect of the earnings decline of the consumer finance segment,” said Larry Dillon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of C&F Financial Corporation. “Loan growth at the retail banking segment has been key to increasing the segment’s interest income and our new interest rate swap program has provided an additional source of noninterest income. The higher volume of mortgage loans closed and sold at the mortgage banking segment contributed to higher gains on loan sales and ancillary fees. The consumer finance segment has also experienced loan growth during 2016; however, its earnings performance has been negatively affected by margin compression and higher charge-offs. As we have said before, the diversity of the Corporation’s business lines tends to stabilize our overall performance.”

“We are pleased with the factors driving higher earnings at the retail banking and mortgage banking segments; however, we are facing challenges at the consumer finance segment,” said Tom Cherry, President of C&F Financial Corporation.  “The consumer finance segment has experienced organic growth during 2016 with loans increasing $11.0 million, or four percent, since December 31, 2015. We believe the implementation in 2016 of a scorecard model has contributed to this growth through underwriting and pricing efficiencies. Despite loan growth, however, earnings at the consumer finance segment have been negatively affected by lower loan yields and a higher provision for loan losses in 2016. The lower yields are in part attributable to loan pricing strategies of our competitors over which we have limited control, and a strategic decision in 2016 to increase the purchase of loans with higher credit quality metrics, which generally have lower interest rates. However, we anticipate that loans with higher credit quality metrics should help reduce future charge-offs.  The higher consumer finance segment loan loss provision in 2016 is attributable to loan growth, higher charge-offs and an increase in the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans to 8.35 percent at September 30, 2016 from 8.21 percent at December 31, 2015. We closely monitor asset quality trends at the consumer finance segment and in the subprime automobile market.  Future changes in our asset quality or in the subprime automobile loan market may result in higher loan loss provisions in the future.”

Retail Banking Segment.  C&F Bank, which comprises the retail banking segment, reported net income of $2.0 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to net income of $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2015.  For the first nine months of 2016, the Bank reported net income of $6.0 million, compared to $4.2 million for the first nine months of 2015.

Positive factors influencing net income of the retail banking segment for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 include: (1) the effect of loan growth on interest income, as average loans at C&F Bank for the first nine months of 2016 increased $71.0 million or 12.5 percent since the same period in 2015, (2) an increase in non-interest income due to fees collected on loans closed under the new loan interest rate swap program, (3) an increase in check card interchange income,  and (4) a lower cost of borrowings resulting from the maturity of a portion of the Bank’s higher-rate FHLB advances. Also contributing to the first nine months of 2016 earnings were one-time revenue items in the second quarter of 2016 associated with a contract amendment for one of the Bank’s debit card programs, the Bank’s BOLI program and a gain on the sale of a Bank-owned property.  Partially offsetting these positive factors were (1) a decline in the yield on the investment portfolio due to replacing matured and called securities with lower-yielding securities, (2) a decline in the yield on loans due to the effects of the low interest rate and competitive loan environment and a decline during the first nine months of 2016 in the net accretion on loans acquired in the 2013 acquisition of Central Virginia Bank (CVB), as discussed below, and (3) higher operating expenses associated with strengthening C&F Bank’s technology infrastructure, growing its commercial lending teams, expanding its product offerings and promoting brand awareness.

The results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 and 2015 for the retail banking segment included the acquisition accounting adjustments recorded in connection with the 2013 acquisition of CVB. The net accretion attributable to these adjustments recognized in the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 was $369,000 and $863,000, net of taxes, respectively, compared to $208,000 and $1.1 million, net of taxes for the third quarter and first nine months of 2015, respectively.

C&F Bank’s total nonperforming assets were $4.8 million at September 30, 2016, compared to $7.1 million at December 31, 2015. Nonperforming assets at September 30, 2016 included $4.3 million in nonaccrual loans, compared to $6.2 million at December 31, 2015, and $499,000 in other real estate owned (OREO), compared to $942,000 at December 31, 2015.  The decrease in nonaccrual loans during the first nine months of 2016 was primarily due to loan payoffs and transfers to OREO. The OREO decrease during the first nine months of 2016 was primarily due to the sale of several OREO properties and a shorter holding period for properties transferred to OREO.

Mortgage Banking Segment.  C&F Mortgage Corporation, which comprises the mortgage banking segment, reported net income of $605,000 for the third quarter of 2016, compared to net income of $190,000 for the third quarter of 2015. For the first nine months of 2016, C&F Mortgage Corporation reported net income of $1.6 million, compared to net income of $499,000 for the first nine months of 2015.

The improvement in net income of the mortgage banking segment resulted from an increase in the volume of mortgage loans closed and sold during the third quarter and first nine months of 2016, compared to the same periods of 2015. Loan volume increased as a result of favorable housing markets for both resale and new construction, which resulted in higher gains on sales of loans and higher ancillary loan origination fees. These revenue increases were partially offset by increases in employee compensation expense, as well as loan production expenses.

The continued focus at the mortgage banking segment is higher loan production, and we continue to seek new expansion opportunities. Currently, the mortgage banking segment is expanding its operations in Chesapeake, Virginia and establishing a loan origination branch on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. While still in the early stages, the outlook for these locations is very encouraging.

Consumer Finance Segment.  C&F Finance Company, which comprises the consumer finance segment, reported net income of $882,000 for the third quarter of 2016, compared to net income of $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2015.  For the first nine months of 2016, C&F Finance Company reported net income of $3.6 million, compared to net income of $6.3 million for the first nine months of 2015.

The declines in net income for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016, compared to the same periods in 2015, were principally due to margin compression, as well as increases of $798,000 and $3.4 million, respectively, in the segment’s provision for loan losses, which were attributable to higher net charge-offs and loan growth.  Partially offsetting the effect of the higher provisions for loan losses were the effects on net interest income of the $13.8 million and $13.0 million increases in average loans for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016, respectively. The increases in average loans were attributable to the purchase of a consumer finance loan portfolio at the end of the second quarter of 2015, along with organic loan growth during the first nine months of 2016. C&F Finance has implemented a scorecard model that is improving underwriting efficiencies and generating competitive pricing, which, along with personnel additions in certain major markets, has led to an increase in loan originations during 2016. 

The results of the consumer finance segment included a $4.9 million and a $13.1 million provision for loan losses for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016, compared to $4.1 million and $9.8 million for the third quarter and first nine months of 2015. The annualized net charge-off ratio for the first nine months of 2016 was 5.28 percent, compared to 4.66 percent for the first nine months of 2015. Loan charge-offs increased for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 due to (1) net charge-offs related to the consumer finance loan portfolio purchased during the second quarter of 2015, which had the effect of increasing this ratio 42 basis points for the first nine months of 2016 and (2) economic and competitive factors affecting non-prime consumer finance customers. The allowance for loan losses to total loans increased to 8.35 percent at September 30, 2016, compared to 8.21 percent at December 31, 2015, and 8.34 percent at September 30, 2015. While charge-offs for the first nine months of 2016 increased, compared to the first nine months of 2015, management believes that the current allowance for loan losses is adequate to absorb probable losses inherent in the consumer finance loan portfolio. At September 30, 2016, total delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans declined to 4.12 percent from 6.22 percent at December 31, 2015 and 5.65 percent at September 30, 2015.  At September 30, 2016, repossessed assets totaled $2.5 million, compared to $2.1 million at December 31, 2015, and $3.2 million at September 30, 2015. If factors influencing the consumer finance segment result in a higher net charge-off ratio in the future, or if the consumer finance segment continues to grow its loan portfolio, C&F Finance Company may need to increase the level of its allowance for loan losses, which could negatively affect future earnings.

Other Segments. Other segments, which principally includes the Corporation’s holding company operations and wealth management subsidiary, reported an aggregate net loss of $295,000 for the third quarter of 2016, compared to a net loss of $169,000 for the third quarter of 2015.  For the first nine months of 2016, other segments reported an aggregate net loss of $896,000, compared to a net loss of $741,000 for the first nine months of 2015. The higher net loss during the first nine months of 2016, compared to the first nine months of 2015, resulted from lower earnings at the Corporation’s wealth management subsidiary due to stock market volatility during the first nine months of 2016. 

Capital and Dividends.  The Corporation declared a quarterly cash dividend of 32 cents per share during the third quarter of 2016, which was paid on October 1, 2016. This dividend equates to a payout ratio of 35.2 percent of earnings per share for the third quarter of 2016. The dividend payout ratio was 32.1 percent for the first nine months of 2016. The Board of Directors of the Corporation continually reviews the amount of cash dividends per share and the resulting dividend payout ratio in light of changes in economic conditions, current and future capital requirements, and expected future earnings.

During the second quarter of 2016, the Corporation qualified for inclusion in the Russell 2000® Index, which serves as a benchmark for small-cap stocks in the United States. Management believes that inclusion in the Russell 2000® has the potential to raise the Corporation’s profile and generate greater interest in the Corporation’s stock at an institutional investor level.

Use of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The accounting and reporting policies of the Corporation conform to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States and prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, certain non-GAAP measures are used by management to supplement the evaluation of the Corporation’s performance. These include the following fully-taxable equivalent (FTE) measures: interest income on loans-FTE, interest income on securities-FTE, total interest income-FTE and net interest income-FTE.

Management believes that FTE measures provide users of the Corporation’s financial information a presentation of the performance of interest earning assets on a basis that is comparable within the banking industry. Management reviews interest income of the Corporation on an FTE basis. In this non-GAAP presentation, interest income is adjusted to reflect tax-exempt interest income on an equivalent before-tax basis. This measure ensures the comparability of net interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP-basis financial statements, and other bank holding companies may define or calculate these or similar measures differently. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Corporation to evaluate and measure the Corporation’s performance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is presented below.

The remaining discount for the purchased credit impaired loans was $4.1 million at 9/30/16, $4.0 million at 12/31/15 and $4.3 million at 9/30/15 for interest and $6.8 million at 9/30/16, $7.8 million at 12/31/15, and $7.8 million at 9/30/15 for credit.

Nonaccrual loans include nonaccrual TDRs of $1.9 million at 9/30/16, $2.5 million at 12/31/15, and $2.3 million at 9/30/15.

Purchased performing-nonaccrual loans are presented net of the remaining interest and credit marks totaling $137,000 at 9/30/16, $247,000 at 12/31/15 and $251,000 at 9/30/15.

OREO is recorded at its estimated fair value less cost to sell.
