Cambridge Bancorp Reports Second Quarter Earnings

Cambridge Bancorp (OTCBB: CATC) today reported unaudited net income of $3,641,000 for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $3,475,000 for the same quarter in 2013. The increase in earnings of $166,000 (4.8%) was attributable to growth in both net interest income and noninterest income, offset by an increase in noninterest expense. Diluted earnings per share were $0.92 for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $0.89 for the same quarter in 2013. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, unaudited net income was $7,152,000, an increase of $346,000 (5.1%) compared to $6,806,000 for the first half of 2013. Diluted earnings per share were $1.81 for the first six months of 2014 versus $1.75 for the same period in 2013.

“We are pleased to report favorable results in an environment characterized by continued low interest rates and intense competition,” notes Joseph V. Roller II, president and CEO. “While the pace of economic growth has been moderate, the Bank continues to build momentum across all business lines, especially Lending and Wealth Management,” said Roller.

Net interest income of $11.8 million for the second quarter of 2014 was $720,000 (6.5%) higher than the same quarter in 2013. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net interest income of $23.6 million was $1.6 million (7.2%) higher than the same period in 2013.

Noninterest income increased by $571,000 (10.3%) to $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $5.5 million for the same quarter in 2013. The Bank continued to build wealth management income, which increased by $473,000 (12.2%) compared to the same quarter in 2013.

Assets under management grew to $2.3 billion at the end of the second quarter 2014 from $2.1 billion at year-end 2013. Other contributors to the noninterest income increase for the second quarter of 2014 were gains from the disposition of investment securities of $151,000, debit card income of $33,000, and other income of $68,000, as compared to the same quarter in 2013. Noninterest income gains were offset by lower income produced from gains on loans sold of $105,000, bank owned life insurance of $25,000, and deposit account fees of $24,000.

The Bank’s net interest margin stabilized after a prolonged period of decreases due to the low rate environment. The Bank’s net interest margin stood at 3.32% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 3.31% for the same quarter in 2013. There was an increase of three basis points for the comparable six-month period.

For the second quarter of 2014, noninterest expense totaled $12.4 million, an increase of $1.1 million (10.1%) compared to the same quarter in 2013. This increase was attributable to the Bank making strategic investments in human capital, systems capabilities, and its office premises. The primary factors for the increase in noninterest expense were higher salaries and benefits of $542,000 (8.3%), data processing of $239,000 (26.1%), and occupancy and equipment of $169,000 (8.5%).

Since year-end 2013, total loans outstanding have increased by $44.6 million (4.7%) to $987.0 million. The solid increase in loans outstanding is attributable to residential mortgage and home equity loan growth of $20.2 million (4.0%) and commercial mortgage loan growth of $18.7 million (5.1%). The low interest rates provide an attractive environment for qualified households to purchase or access home equity and businesses looking to purchase or refinance properties.

Non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans stood at 0.14% at June 30, 2014, a slight decrease from 0.18% at December 31, 2013. Loan quality remains sound and the Allowance for Loan Losses stood at $13.2 million or 1.34% of total loans outstanding at June 30, 2014. At December 31, 2013, the Allowance for Loan Losses was $12.7 million or 1.35% of total loans outstanding. The provision for loan losses was $150,000 for the current quarter.

Total deposits experienced a seasonal drop of $98.7 million (7.0%) since year-end 2013, yet increased by $63.4 million (5.1%) over June 30, 2013.

Total assets at second quarter 2014 end were $1.5 billion, relatively flat since year-end 2013.
