Tompkins Financial Corporation (TMP–NYSE MKT LLC)
Tompkins Financial Corporation reported diluted earnings per share of $0.75 for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 4.2% from the $0.72 reported for the same period in 2012. Net income of $11.0 million for the second quarter of 2013, represents a 24.7% increase from the same period in 2012. Year to date diluted earnings per share were $1.55 for the current period, up 9.2% over the first six months of 2012. Year to date net income of $22.5 million in 2013 is up 35.3% over the same period in 2012.
Comparisons of the Statement of Income and Statement of Condition to the same period last year are impacted by the acquisition of VIST Financial Corporation on August 1, 2012. As more fully disclosed in the non-GAAP disclosure section of this press release, net income and diluted earnings in the current and prior period were also impacted by merger related expenses. The second quarter of 2012 also included $243,000 in after tax income related to the reversal of an accrued liability resulting from the settlement of litigation between VISA Inc. and certain merchants. After adjusting for the after-tax impact of the above items, diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2013 would have been approximately flat compared to the prior year, and year to date diluted earnings per share would have been up by approximately 6.8% over the same period last year.
President and CEO, Stephen S. Romaine said "We saw positive trends during the quarter, with net interest income up $1.6 million from the first quarter of 2013, representing an annualized growth rate of 17.0%. The growth was fueled by increased loans and noninterest-bearing deposits, which reflected annualized growth of 8.2% and 14.7% respectively over the first quarter of 2013. The improvement in net interest income was tempered by higher provision expense during the quarter, and lower noninterest income as compared to the prior quarter. Overall performance remains strong, with annualized return on average equity of 10.20% for the quarter, which is ahead of the same period last year and compares favorably to the most recent Federal Reserve Board peer ratio of 8.43% 1.”NET INTEREST INCOME
