TrustCo Announces Third Quarter Pretax Earnings Up 10%

GLENVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 22, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TrustCo Bank Corp NY (TrustCo) (Nasdaq:TRST) today announced that pre-tax earnings were up 10.1% from $14.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 to $15.8 million in the third quarter of 2012. Net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $9.8 million, up 5.7% over the prior-year period and equal to diluted earnings per share of $0.104, compared to net income of $9.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.100 for the third quarter of 2011.

The third quarter of 2012 saw continued balance sheet growth compared to the third quarter of 2011, but a modest decline compared to the second quarter of 2012. Robert J. McCormick, President and Chief Executive Officer noted, "We are pleased that the third quarter resulted in continued solid earnings growth. As noted in our second quarter release, the current interest rate environment has created a unique opportunity for our Company to realign the deposit mix which should support future objectives. As we had discussed we allowed an average of $124.0 million of higher cost time deposits to run off during the third quarter while at the same time growing our core deposits by an average of $96.9 million. Previous strong quarterly growth in deposits allowed us the flexibility to take advantage of this opportunity to shift our deposit mix, which helped improve our margin. Balance sheet expansion remains an important part of our future plans, but we will also continue to take advantage of future opportunities like those in the third quarter that strengthen our deposit mix and have a positive impact on our margin. We continue to add solid and profitable customers on both the deposit and loan side, and will remain conservative as to how we price our products. Our highly liquid balance sheet allows us to fund loan growth without having to overpay for deposits. We look forward to the balance of 2012 and 2013 with optimism, though we note that our industry continues to face challenges as the economy remains fragile and interest rates remain at unprecedented levels. We will continue to take advantage of opportunities that are presented." Return on average equity and return on average assets were 10.97% and 0.89%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2012, compared to 10.91% and 0.88% for the third quarter of 2011. The efficiency ratio was 49.18% for the third quarter of 2012, compared to 46.51% for the third quarter of 2011. Both years ratios rank among industry leaders.

Mr. McCormick also noted "We continue to see some signs of economic improvement in the markets in which we operate, although high levels of unemployment and other persistent issues continue to constrain any significant growth. We believe our long-term focus on traditional lending criteria and conservative balance sheet management has enabled us to maintain a strong balance sheet with continued profitability. As a result, we have been able to focus on conducting business, which has put us in a position to take advantage of the significant upheaval that customers of other banks have experienced."

TrustCo continued to report solid growth in loans and deposits on a year-over-year basis. For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, average loans were up $134.7 million or 5.5% compared to the same period in 2011, while average deposits increased $166.1 million or 4.5% over the same period. Compared to the second quarter of 2012, average deposits were down $27.0 million or 2.8% (annualized) and average loans were up $42.3 million or 6.7% (annualized). Mr. McCormick noted that, "The year-over-year growth of our loans and deposits reflects the long term strategic focus of the Bank, while the decline in average deposits relative to the second quarter reflects our near term tactical decision to intensify our focus on enhancing our mix of deposits and growing our core customer base. Our efforts in this regard resulted in certificate of deposit balances falling from 33.9% of deposits at June 30, 2012 to 29.4% at September 30, 2012. Because certificates are our most costly deposits, this decline contributed to our overall cost of deposits falling to 0.44% in the third quarter compared to 0.52% in the second quarter. 

Our branch franchise continues to be the key to our long term plans. We have made significant progress in expanding our loans and deposits through our branches, and expect that to continue as the new branches grow towards their capacity. We remain mindful that fully achieving our goals for our newer branches will take time and continued hard work. We believe our success in growing customer relationships provides the basic building blocks that will help drive profit growth over the coming years. As we have noted, however, we will not pursue balance sheet expansion that does not contribute to the long term health of the Company."

For the first nine months of 2012 net income was $27.7 million and resulted in diluted earnings per share of $0.296, as compared to the first nine months of 2011 net income of $24.4 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.296. Net income was up 13.8% from the first nine months of 2011 to the first nine months of 2012. Return on average equity and return on average assets were 10.64% and 0.85%, respectively, for the first nine months of 2012 and 11.38% and 0.80% for the comparable period in 2011.

Reported credit results for the quarter were affected by the implementation in the third quarter of new OCC guidance which affected consumer loans where the borrower's obligation to TrustCo has been discharged in bankruptcy and the borrower has not reaffirmed the debt.  Implementation of this new OCC guidance affected nonperforming loans and net charge offs as follows:
  • Net $4.0 million of performing consumer loans were reclassified to nonaccrual status, and
  • $804 thousand increase in net charge offs, which was covered by the reserve.

Nonperforming loans were $49.9 million as of September 30, 2012, compared to $51.5 million at June 30, 2012 and $47.0 million at September 30, 2011. Nonperforming assets were $58.6 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $55.3 million at June 30, 2012 and $53.1 million at September 30, 2011. At September 30, 2012, nonperforming loans were equal to 1.92% of total loans, compared to 2.01% at June 30, 2012 and 1.89% at September 30, 2011. Nonperforming assets to total assets were 1.36% at September 30, 2012, compared to 1.25% at June 30, 2012 and 1.27% at September 30, 2011. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of gross loans and as a multiple of net charge-offs remains strong. Excluding the affect of implementing the new OCC guidance TrustCo would have had nonperforming loans of $45.9 million or 1.76% of total loans, and nonperforming assets of $54.6 million or 1.26% of total assets as of September 30, 2012. The allowance to total loans was 1.82% at September 30, 2012 and 1.88% at June 30, 2012, and covered annualized third quarter net charge-offs by 3.3 times, compared to an annualized 4.1 times for the third quarter of 2011. The coverage ratio, or allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans was 94.9% at September 30, 2012, compared to 93.3% at June 30, 2012 and 101.7% at September 30, 2011. Excluding the affect of implementing the new OCC guidance TrustCo's allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2012 as a percentage of gross loans would have been 1.85%,  which would have covered annualized third quarter net charge offs by 4.4 times.  Likewise the coverage ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans would have been 104.9% at September 30 , 2012.

Net interest margin for the third quarter of 2012 was 3.21%, up from 3.16% in the second quarter of 2012 and down from 3.38% in the third quarter of 2011. The improvement in the margin is partly due to the decision to restrain overall deposit growth through pricing discipline while improving the deposit mix during the third quarter.

At September 30, 2012 the tangible equity ratio was 8.27% compared to 8.04% at September 30, 2011. Tangible book value per share ended the third quarter at $3.81 compared to $3.62 in the year-ago period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation

Tangible book value per share and tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate tangible equity and tangible assets by excluding the balance of intangible assets from shareholders' equity and total assets, respectively. We calculate tangible book value per share by dividing tangible equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which we calculate by dividing shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. We calculate tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end by dividing tangible equity by tangible assets at period end. We believe that this is consistent with the treatment by bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios. 

The efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP measure of expense control relative to recurring revenue. We calculate the efficiency ratio by dividing total noninterest expenses as determined under GAAP, but excluding other real estate expense, net, which we refer to below as recurring expense, by net interest income (fully taxable equivalent) and total noninterest income as determined under GAAP, but excluding net gains on securities from this calculation, which we refer to below as recurring revenue. We believe that this provides one reasonable measure of core expenses relative to core revenue. 

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is important to investors and that is useful in understanding our financial position, results and ratios. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures. As other companies may use different calculations for these measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures reported by other companies. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures of tangible common equity, tangible book value per share and efficiency ratio to the underlying GAAP numbers is set forth below.
