Lewis & Clark Bancorp announces 2022 Second Quarter and Year to Date Results

August 26, 2022 GMT

OREGON CITY, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 26, 2022--

Lewis & Clark Bancorp (OTC Pink: LWCL) announces 2022 second quarter and year to date consolidated results. Quarter to date net income totaled $515,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, a decrease of $519,000 compared to $1,034,000 for the same period last year. Earnings per share were $0.48 for the current year quarter, compared to $0.94 for the prior year quarter.

The decreased earnings in the current year quarter were due to a decrease in both net interest income and noninterest income and an increase in noninterest expense, partially offset by a decrease in the provision for income taxes compared to the same period one year ago. The decrease in net interest income was due to a decrease in interest and fees on loans, primarily due to a decline in interest and fees earned on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans in the prior year period, partially offset by an increase in interest on interest bearing cash and investment securities, and a decrease in interest expense due to lower rates paid on deposits. Net interest margin was 3.30% for the current year quarter compared to 3.24% for the same period one year ago. The increase in the net interest margin was primarily due to interest earned and collected on a nonaccrual loan that was paid off during the current year quarter and a decline in the average balance of interest earning assets, partially offset by a decrease in interest and fees earned on PPP loans. The decrease in noninterest income was due to decreases in both earnings from cash surrender value of life insurance and gains on equity securities. The increase in noninterest expense was due to increases in salaries and employee benefits, occupancy, professional fees, software license and maintenance, and various other overhead expenses, partially offset by a decrease in intangible amortization. The increased noninterest expense is primarily due to our long-range strategic investment and growth initiatives, which are now in full implementation mode. These include infrastructure and channel partnership development to support banking-as-a-service, lending platforms, and payments; automation efforts to support scale; and overall back-office operational efficiencies. The decrease in the provision for income taxes was due to a decrease in pre-tax earnings compared to the prior year period.

Year to date net income totaled $899,000, or $.84 per share, compared to $1,944,000, or $1.74 per share for the same period last year. The decreased earnings in the current year period were due to a decrease in net interest income and an increase in noninterest expense, partially offset by an increase in noninterest income and a decrease in the provision for income taxes compared to the same period one year ago. With the exception of noninterest income, the decreased earnings for the year-to-date period are substantially the same as those for the current year quarter as previously discussed. The increase in noninterest income was due to increases in both earnings from cash surrender value of life insurance and gains on equity securities compared to the prior year period.

Jeffrey Sumpter, President and CEO, commented, “Although our earnings trail those reported in the prior year period, they are in line with our forecast given the many and previously announced strategic investment and growth initiatives that are now in full implementation mode.” Sumpter added, “We continue to move forward with these initiatives which are designed to augment and diversify revenue, ensure capacity to scale, and improve overall efficiencies as we move forward into the coming years. We are also pleased to report that we have paid twenty-five consecutive quarters of shareholder dividends.”

As of June 30, 2022, total consolidated assets were $399.5 million, a decrease of $45.1 million, or 10.1%, compared to December 31, 2021, primarily due to decreases in cash, investment securities, gross loans, and total deposits, partially offset by an increase in other assets. Investment securities decreased by $6.3 million primarily due to a $10.8 million increase in unrealized losses, partially offset by purchases totaling $5.0 million. Gross loans decreased by $22.2 million primarily due to principal reductions and payoffs exceeding new originations. Total deposits decreased $37.4 million, which was expected given the increased growth in the prior year related to the deposits generated from PPP loans. Total other assets increased by $7.6 million due to an increase in deferred taxes related to unrealized losses on investment securities and receivables balances. Shareholders’ equity totaled $30.5 million at June 30, 2022, a decrease of $7.1 million, compared to $37.6 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease was substantially due to a $7.9 million increase in unrealized losses on investment securities, and shareholder dividends totaling $161,000, partially offset by earnings of $899,000.
