SVB&T Corporation, Parent Company of Springs Valley Bank & Trust Company, Reports 2020 First Quarter Unaudited Earnings

JASPER, IN / ACCESSWIRE / April 30, 2020 / SVB&T Corporation (OTCQX:SVBT), parent company of Springs Valley Bank & Trust Company, announced unaudited earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2020 of $815,000 or $1.46 earnings per share (EPS) – a 19.67% increase compared to the first quarter 2019 EPS. First quarter earnings compare favorably in total dollars to 2019 earnings of $683,000. This year to date (YTD) March 2020 performance translates to a return on average assets (ROAA) of 0.72%, compared to the same period 2019 of 0.67%.

Book value has decreased by 1.35% to $80.92 per share on March 31, 2020, compared to $82.03 per share on December 31, 2019. The SVB&T Corporation stock closed at $65.00 per share on April 29, 2020.

Total assets decreased $3.5 Million to $449.4 Million on March 31, 2020, compared to December 31, 2019 assets of $452.9 Million. Total loans, including loans held for sale, before allowances increased $5.8 Million to $356.1 Million on March 31, 2020 from $350.3 Million on December 31, 2019. Total deposits decreased $4.2 Million to $357.0 Million on March 31, 2020 from $361.2 Million on December 31, 2019.

Net interest income before provision expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $3.6 Million compared to $3.3 Million for the same period 2019, an increase of $300,000. Earning assets grew considerably from the end of the first quarter of 2019 through the first quarter of 2020, and subsequently, interest income increased by approximately $364,000. This asset growth was funded by a mix of core deposits, brokered deposits, and borrowings. Additionally, yields on earning assets, deposits, and borrowings all decreased from the first quarter of 2019 to the first quarter of 2020; however, yields on interest earning assets decreased by a greater amount, causing net interest margin compression of approximately seven basis points.

Total non-interest income increased $252,000 to $1.5 Million for the period ending March 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. The largest contributing factors to the favorable variance included an increase in sold mortgage income of $151,000 and an increase in income of $110,00 from fiduciary services of the Financial Advisory Group, as compared to 2019 first quarter revenues. It has been a strategic focus of Springs Valley’s to capitalize upon the recent spike in mortgage refinancings, as rates dropped in the first quarter of 2020, in order to bolster fee income and potentially combat any margin compression.

YTD 2020 non-interest expense increased $342,000 to $3.9 Million, compared to the first three months ended March 31, 2019. This increase in non-interest expense is due in large part to elevated salary and employee benefits expense for the first quarter of 2020 (an increase of $146,000) driven by increased staffing to support growth, as well as an increase in premises and equipment expenses (occupancy expense) of $61,000. Both expense increases can largely be attributed to the opening of two new banking centers, with the Washington Banking Center opening in the second half of 2019 and the Princeton Banking Center opening at the beginning of 2020.

The $132,000 increase in net income, when comparing the first quarter 2020 to the first quarter 2019, was driven by increases in net interest income and non-interest income that outweighed the increase in non-interest expense as discussed in the preceding paragraphs. The outlook for the remainder of 2020 remains cautiously optimistic as Springs Valley strategically maneuvers through these uncertain times with a focus on helping our customers navigate the pandemic environment. We expect to continue to capitalize upon mortgage refinancings while rates remain low, as well as continuing to offer Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans through the SBA while government funding is available.

“The first quarter of 2020 has surpassed any period in recent history with regard to a serious worldwide health threat as well as corresponding widespread economic disruption,” stated President & CEO Jamie Shinabarger. He went on to say, “Yet, against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Company has managed to keep staff healthy while meeting the day-to-day physical banking needs of our customers through the responsible adherence to social distancing guidelines. Additionally, having invested heavily in electronic banking tools, Springs Valley’s wide array of digital banking products have provided the speed, convenience, and flexibility essential in challenging times such as these. Even though the breadth of these automated services rival that of our bigger brethren, we still answer our phones with a “live” person, providing the personalized touch that our brand has become known for and operating with an intense focus on you-our customers and communities.”

Mr. Shinabarger concluded, “Springs Valley is positioned to weather this storm, having entered this tumultuous period with a very solid balance sheet and capital position, bolstered by the best eight consecutive years of financial performance in the 118-year history of the franchise. The officers, directors, and employees salute our health care providers and first responders during this stressful time and offer our heartfelt thanks!”
