NBT Bancorp Inc. Announces Third Quarter Diluted Earnings Per Share Of $0.43; Strong Loan Growth

Noninterest income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $21.6 million, up 7.1% or $1.4 million, compared with $20.2 million for the same period in 2011. Insurance and other financial services revenue increased approximately $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2011. This increase was due primarily to organic growth in commercial product lines. Retirement plan administration fees increased approximately $0.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2011, due primarily to an increase in customer base. Other noninterest income increased approximately $1.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2011. This increase was due primarily to an increase in mortgage banking activity during the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared with the three months ended September 30, 2011. The Company sold approximately $9.7 million residential mortgages during the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to no sales during the same period in 2011. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in service charges on deposit accounts of approximately $0.9 million, or 16.4%, for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared with the same period in 2011 primarily due to the aforementioned decrease in overdraft fee income.

Noninterest Expense and Income Tax Expense

Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $145.3 million, up $12.0 million or 9.0%, for the same period in 2011. Salaries and employee benefits increased $4.3 million, or 5.7%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared with the same period in 2011. This increase was due primarily to increases in full-time-equivalent employees from acquisitions, merit increases, and increased pension expenses.  Professional fees and outside services increased $1.5 million, or 23.2%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. Data processing and communications expenses increased approximately $1.0 million, or 10.5%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011, due primarily to expansion into new markets.  Merger related expenses totaled $1.9 million in the first nine months of 2012, as compared to $0.2 million for the same period in 2011. Other operating expenses increased $2.0 million in the first nine months of 2012 as compared with the same period in 2011. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") expenses of approximately $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2011. This decrease was due to the FDIC redefining the deposit insurance assessment base effective the second quarter of 2011. Income tax expense for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was $17.0 million, down from $17.4 million for the same period in 2011. The effective tax rate was 29.1% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 28.2% for the same period in 2011.
