Fauquier Bankshares, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2020 Results

WARRENTON, Va., Oct. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fauquier Bankshares, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: FBSS), parent company of The Fauquier Bank (the "Bank"), reported net income of $1.5 million, or $0.41 per diluted share for the third quarter, compared with $1.6 million, or $0.42 per diluted share for the prior quarter and $2.1 million or $0.54 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2019.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net income was $4.5 million, or $1.19 per diluted share compared with $5.2 million, or $1.38 per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.  

"On October 1, 2020 we announced a definitive agreement to combine in a strategic merger of equals with Virginia National Bankshares Corporation (OTCQX: VABK)," said Marc Bogan, President and CEO.  "The enhanced scale and complementary business lines resulting from this transaction provides the best opportunity for both banks to better serve our major constituencies: our clients, our employees, our shareholders and our communities. We are committed to using the best practices of both companies to increase our market share across Virginia."  Mr. Bogan continued by saying, "While COVID-19 continues to impact our operations and earnings, our financial results were better than expected considering the continued increases to our loan loss provision.  Compression in our net interest margin continues as a result of the current economic and interest rate environments, however, core loan and deposit growth for the quarter was strong.  2020 has presented its challenges for the banking industry, but we are excited by the opportunities that are ahead and we look forward to serving the banking and financial needs of our clients and communities in our new combined organization."

Third Quarter and Year to Date Highlights

  • Net income of $1.5 million for the third quarter, a decrease of 1.96% and 24.61% when compared to the prior quarter and third quarter of 2019, respectively.  Year to date net income of $4.5 million, a decrease of 13.85% compared to the first nine months of 2019;     
  •  Net interest margin of 3.22% for the third quarter, a decrease of 27 basis points and 51 basis points when compared to the prior quarter and third quarter of 2019, respectively.  Year to date net interest margin of 3.48%, a decrease of 30 basis points compared to the first nine months of 2019;
  • Total loans of $638.1 million, an increase of 2.47% and 17.04% when compared to June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, respectively; 
  • Allowance for loan losses increased to $6.7 million, compared to $6.4 million as of June 30, 2020 and $5.4 million as of September 30, 2019;   
  • Provision for loan losses of $345,000 for the third quarter compared to $911,000 for the prior quarter.  There was no provision for loan losses recorded for the third quarter of 2019.  Year to date provision for loan losses increased to $1.6 million compared to $255,000 for the first nine months of 2019;   
  • Deposits of $739.8 million, an increase of 4.82% and 20.49% compared to June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, respectively;   
  • Regulatory capital remains strong with ratios exceeding the well capitalized thresholds in all categories.  

During the second quarter of 2020, as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the "CARES Act"), the Bank originated 543 Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loans, totaling $52.8 million.  The average loan size of these loans was $97,200, representing a loan yield of 3.38% and a weighted average fee of 4.0%.  Due to the ongoing development of the loan forgiveness process and the lack of operational guidance received, as of September 30, 2020, the Bank did not extend loan forgiveness to any borrower who obtained a PPP loan.  In addition, the CARES Act along with interagency guidance provided financial institutions the option to temporarily suspend certain accounting requirements related to troubled debt restructurings ("TDR") with respect to short-term loan modifications, including the deferral of scheduled payments.  As of June 30, 2020, 194 loans, totaling $92.8 million in principal loan balances, were granted a 90-day deferment of scheduled payments.  As of September 30, 2020, 97% of these deferments have ended and have returned to their normal payment schedules, while subsequent deferments totaling $4.0 million have been granted to 6 borrowers, consisting of 1 commercial real estate loan, 2 commercial and industrial loans, and 3 residential real estate loans.  These additional deferrals were not considered TDRs under current regulatory and accounting guidance. 

For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company's return on average equity ("ROE") and return on average assets ("ROA") were 8.58% and 0.74%, respectively, compared to 9.02% and 0.80% for the prior quarter, respectively, and 12.46% and 1.14%, for the third quarter of 2019, respectively.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, ROE and ROA were 8.60% and 0.77%, respectively, compared to 11.10% and 1.00%, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Total assets were $840.3 million on September 30, 2020 compared to $825.6 million on June 30, 2020 and $726.3 million on September 30, 2019.  Total loans were $638.1 million compared to $622.7 million on June 30, 2020 and $545.2 million on September 30, 2019.  Total deposits were $739.8 million on September 30, 2020 compared to $705.8 million for the prior quarter and $614.0 million on September 30, 2019.  Low cost transaction deposits (demand and interest checking accounts) were $432.3 million on September 30, 2020 compared to $431.8 million for the prior quarter and $354.5 million on September 30, 2019.   

Net interest margin was 3.22% for the third quarter of 2020 compared to 3.49% for the prior quarter and 3.73% for the third quarter of 2019.  Net interest income was $6.3 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $6.4 million for the prior quarter and $6.2 million for the third quarter of 2019.  Net interest margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was 3.48% and 3.78%, respectively.  Net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $18.9 million and $18.4 million, respectively.  While interest income has been significantly impacted by the lower interest rate environment, interest income has benefited from the PPP loans and related fees.  These loans contributed approximately $330,000 and $500,000 to interest income for the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, respectively.  The interest rate environment also contributed to the decrease in interest expense during the third quarter, resulting in a 6 basis point and 44 basis point decline in the cost of funds when compared to the prior quarter and third quarter of 2019, respectively.  Cost of funds for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was 0.39% and 0.73%, respectively.          

The Company's allowance for loan loss methodology determines the level of loan provision at the end of each quarter.  Based on loan portfolio growth, net charge-off history, asset quality indicators, impaired loans and other qualitative factors, there was $345,000 in provision for loan losses for the third quarter compared to $911,000 for the prior quarter.  There was no provision for loan losses recorded for the third quarter of 2019.  The provision for loan losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $1.6 million and $255,000, respectively.  The allowance for loan losses increased to $6.7 million or 1.05% of total loans on September 30, 2020 compared with $6.4 million or 1.03% of total loans for the prior quarter and $5.4 million or 0.99% of total loans on September 30, 2019. 

Nonperforming assets decreased to $11.6 million on September 30, 2020, compared to $12.5 million for the prior quarter and $6.7 million on September 30, 2019.  Included in nonperforming assets for the quarter were $10.3 million of nonperforming loans and $1.4 million of other real estate owned.  Net loan charge-offs were $44,000 for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $105,000 and $14,000 for the prior quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.  Net charge-offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 were $88,000 and $36,000, respectively.  The Bank continues to monitor the performance of our entire loan portfolio for indications of stress, including identifying certain commercial loan industries that we believe are more susceptible to risk presented by the pandemic.   

Noninterest income was $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $1.2 million for the prior quarter and $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2019.  Noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $4.0 million and $4.5 million, respectively.       

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2020 was $5.7 million compared with $4.9 million for the prior quarter and $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2019.  Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $16.2 million and $16.6 million, respectively.    

Shareholders' equity was $72.2 million on September 30, 2020 compared with $71.1 million for the prior quarter and $66.0 million on September 30, 2019.  Book value per common share was $19.03 on September 30, 2020 compared to $18.73 for the prior quarter and $17.43 on September 30, 2019.

Use of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to 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 Company's performance.  This includes the Company's calculation of the efficiency ratio (non-GAAP).  The Company's management believes that the use of this non-GAAP financial information provides meaningful information about operating performance by enhancing comparability with other financial periods and with other financial institutions.  The non-GAAP measure used by management that is set forth in this release enhance comparability by calculating net interest income used in the efficiency ratio on a tax equivalent basis and excluding the effects of securities gains/losses from noninterest income.  This non-GAAP financial information should not be considered an alternative to GAAP-basis financial statements, and other bank holding companies may define or calculate similar measures differently.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company to evaluate and measure the Company's performance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is presented below.

(1)      

Net interest margin is calculated as fully taxable equivalent net interest income divided by average earning assets and represents the Company's net yield on its earning assets.

(2)      

Efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) is computed by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of fully taxable equivalent net interest income and noninterest income, net of securities gains or losses.  This is a non-GAAP financial measure that management believes provides investors with important information regarding operational efficiency. Management believes such financial information is meaningful to the reader in understanding operating performance, but cautions that such information should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP financial information.  Comparison of our efficiency ratio with those of other companies may not be possible because other companies may calculate them differently.

(1)      

Net interest margin is calculated as fully taxable equivalent net interest income divided by average earning assets and represents the Company's net yield on its earning assets.

(2)      

Efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) is computed by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of fully taxable equivalent net interest income and noninterest income, net of securities gains or losses.  This is a non-GAAP financial measure that management believes provides investors with important information regarding operational efficiency. Management believes such financial information is meaningful to the reader in understanding operating performance, but cautions that such information should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP financial information.  Comparison of our efficiency ratio with those of other companies may not be possible because other companies may calculate them differently.
