Stock Yards Bancorp Reports Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017

Revenues Increase to Record Amounts, While the Impact of New Tax Legislation Drives Down Net Income

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--()--Stock Yards Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYBT), parent company of Stock Yards Bank & Trust Company, with offices in the Louisville, Indianapolis and Cincinnati metropolitan markets, today reported results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2017. Total revenue, comprising net interest income and non-interest income, increased 6% to $38.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 from $36.4 million for the year-earlier quarter. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 totaled $4.9 million or $0.22 per diluted share compared with $10.6 million or $0.46 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2016. Total revenue for 2017 increased 6% to $148.7 million from $140.8 million for 2016. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2017, was $38.0 million or $1.66 per diluted share compared with $41.0 million or $1.80 per diluted share for 2016. Net income for the fourth quarter and full year 2017 reflected a non-cash charge of $5.9 million or $0.25 per diluted share to revalue the Company's net deferred tax asset in connection with federal income tax legislation enacted on December 22, 2017.

“With the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act last month, an immediate recalculation of the value of our net deferred tax asset was required and recorded as additional income tax expense in the fourth quarter”

Key aspects of the Company's performance for the year included:

  • Solid loan growth during 2017, which increased the Company's loan portfolio almost 5% for 2018;
  • Consistently strong net interest margin;
  • Credit quality remained at historically strong levels;
  • Continued growth in fee income, led by the Wealth Management and Trust Group; and
  • Solid returns on average assets and equity of 1.25% and 11.61%, respectively, despite the negative impact of 0.20% on return on average assets and 1.81% on return on average equity due to the year-end remeasurement charge noted above.

"We are pleased to announce a strong conclusion to 2017, marked by solid performance in many important areas, such as loan production and loan growth, net interest margin and wealth management and trust," said David P. Heintzman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Alongside that, credit quality remained exceptionally strong. These factors resulted in record pretax results for the Company in 2017 and, together with the solid loan pipeline we have in place as we head into 2018 and the positive effect of lower tax rates in the future, position us to maintain an attractive growth trajectory in the coming year.

"With the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act last month, an immediate recalculation of the value of our net deferred tax asset was required and recorded as additional income tax expense in the fourth quarter," Heintzman continued. "While this had an impact on 2017 earnings, the lower statutory rate going forward should allow us to more than recoup during 2018 the remeasurement charge we recorded in 2017, and future periods will continue to benefit from lower income taxes. More broadly, lower tax rates are widely expected to promote growth and expansion across the business spectrum, including small and middle-market companies – our core clientele – leading to higher capital investment and new job creation, all of which would be positive for the Company's outlook."

Commenting on the loan portfolio, Heintzman reported that loan production was strong in the fourth quarter, matching the pace experienced in the year-earlier quarter and representing one of the best quarterly performances ever for the Company. Significantly, the conversion of loan production to loan growth ramped up noticeably in the fourth quarter, with loan growth of more than 3% on a sequential quarter basis. "After a slow start to the year in terms of net loan growth, we were pleased to see momentum build in the fourth quarter, pushing our total portfolio up almost 5% for all of 2017," he added. "This growth, in which all three of our markets participated, was led by commercial and industrial loans – one of our key lending areas – and reflected a number of project-oriented deals funding up to permanent financing. Although loan payoffs may challenge future loan growth, we remain optimistic about where our loan pipeline stands today and new opportunities that may arise as tax reform begins to stimulate the economy."

Focusing on non-interest income, which accounted for more than 30% of total revenue for 2017, Heintzman reiterated the positive impact of the Company's diverse fee-based revenue streams in supporting predictable, reliable earnings growth over the long term. Wealth management and trust, with approximately $2.8 billion of assets under management, comprises almost one-half of the Company's fee-based income and, thus, has been a key element of this strategy. Income from wealth management and trust increased 6% for the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with the year-earlier quarter and was up 7% for the full year, both of which reflected primarily the addition of new customer relationships along with continued stock market gains. Importantly, this growth has continued to offset a general slowdown in mortgage banking as rates have risen and housing inventory remained tight.

Concluding, Heintzman said, "We are pleased with the Company's overall progress and prosperity during 2017. These achievements not only underscore the strategies we have in place to grow our business across our markets, but also reflect the interest and effort everyone at Stock Yards Bank & Trust puts forth in forging strong, deep and enduring relationships with the customers we serve. Considering the diverse nature of our business, the strong lending pipeline we have developed as we move into 2018, and lower income taxes in the year to come, we remain optimistic about the Company's prospects to extend its record of growth in the future and remain among the top performing community banks in the country."

Concerning the non-cash charge to remeasure the Company's net deferred tax asset, Heintzman noted that deferred taxes occur due to timing differences between recording transactions for financial reporting and tax purposes. These differences were originally recorded using a 35% marginal rate. With the new tax legislation, the Company's deferred tax asset is now expected to be settled at a lower rate and has been remeasured based on the new marginal rate of 21%. With this lower federal marginal rate in mind, the Company expects an overall effective tax rate of approximately 17% for 2018. The remeasurement of the Company's net deferred tax asset was based on management's reasonable estimates of certain income tax effects of the new federal income tax legislation, and these provisional amounts may be adjusted during the measurement period ending December 31, 2018.

Total assets increased $200 million or 6% at December 31, 2017, to $3.24 billion from $3.04 billion at December 31, 2016. Ongoing growth in the Company's loan portfolio accounted for a significant portion of this increase, as the portfolio rose $104.2 million or almost 5% to $2.41 billion at December 31, 2017. Total deposits advanced $57.7 million or 2% to $2.58 billion at December 31, 2017. Stock Yards Bank & Trust continues to attract new customers and experience growth with existing customers across most account categories, which in turn provides substantial support for the Company's balance sheet growth. Core deposits, which exclude brokered deposits and time deposits greater than $250,000, held steady at 99% of total deposits as of December 31, 2017.

Stock Yards Bancorp remains "well capitalized" – the highest capital rating for financial institutions. As of December 31, 2017, the Company's total equity to assets was 10.30% and tangible common equity ratio was 10.25% (tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure; see reconciliation of total stockholders' equity to tangible common equity and total assets to tangible assets later in this release). While the remeasurement charge reduced year-end capital ratios approximately 20 basis points, the Company expects to more than recoup that decline through lower income taxes during 2018. Even with its strong capital position, the Company still produces industry-leading returns on equity due to its superior earnings performance. Stock Yards Bancorp continues to pursue strategies to enhance stockholder value, including a substantial and sustained dividend payout ratio. In November 2017, Stock Yards Bancorp's Board of Directors increased the Company's quarterly cash dividend to $0.21 per common share. With a lower marginal tax rate going forward, the Board intends to consider strategies to deploy tax savings in ways that grow the Company's business and drive higher stockholder value.

Net interest income – the Company's largest source of revenue – increased approximately $1.9 million or 8% to $27.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 from $25.1 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase reflected the impact of ongoing loan portfolio growth and higher prevailing interest rates, offset in part by increased funding costs, primarily due to higher rates paid on deposit accounts. Net interest income increased $6.3 million or 7% to $103.6 million in 2017 compared with $97.3 million in the prior-year period.

On a sequential-quarter basis, net interest income increased $859 thousand or 3% from the third quarter of 2017, while net interest margin (on a fully tax-equivalent basis) was 3.65% compared with 3.66% in the third quarter of 2017 and 3.56% in the fourth quarter of 2016. Net interest margin for the fourth quarter reflected the positive impact of increases in the prime rate in 2017, which was offset by a temporary inflow of short-term public funds at the end of the year. While this excess liquidity was maintained in lower-yielding, short-term investments and resulted in lower net interest margin, it was accretive to earnings. The Company expects liquidity to return to normal levels during the first and second quarters of 2018. The first two rate hikes in 2017, which increased the prime rate to 4.25%, moved virtually all variable rate loans in the Company's portfolio above any remaining rate floors. The third 25-basis-point increase in the prime rate, which occurred on December 14, 2017, had no meaningful effect on net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 2017. Approximately 60% of the Company's loans are priced at fixed rates, so future rate increases may begin to benefit this part of the portfolio as existing fixed-rate loans renew and new fixed-rate loans originate at higher rates – with both subject to competitive conditions and prevailing interest rates.

The Company's historically strong asset quality metrics, which have trended within a narrow range over the past several years, remained steady during the fourth quarter of 2017. Non-performing loans (NPLs) totaled $7.4 million or 0.31% of total loans outstanding at December 31, 2017, versus $6.1 million or 0.26% of total loans outstanding at September 30, 2017, and $6.7 million or 0.29% of total loans outstanding at December 31, 2016. Similarly, non-performing assets, which include NPLs along with other real estate owned (OREO) and repossessed assets, were $10.0 million or 0.31% of total assets at December 31, 2017, versus $8.7 million or 0.28% of total assets at September 30, 2017, and $11.7 million or 0.39% of total assets at December 31, 2016. Net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2017, and throughout 2017 and 2016, were insignificant relative to average loans outstanding. While the Company is pleased to achieve these strong asset quality metrics, management understands the cyclic nature of banking and knows these metrics will normalize over the long term.

The Company recorded a loan loss provision of $900 thousand during the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with $150 thousand in the third quarter of 2017 and $500 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2016. The provision for the fourth quarter of 2017 took into consideration a generally favorable trend in most credit quality metrics, an ongoing low level of charge-offs, other qualitative considerations, and loan growth. As a result, in management's view the Company's allowance for loan losses remained adequate at 1.03% of total loans as of December 31, 2017, versus 1.07% at September 30, 2017, and 1.04% at December 31, 2016.

Total non-interest income in the fourth quarter of 2017 increased $226 thousand or 2% to $11.5 million from $11.3 million in the prior-year quarter. This increase primarily reflected ongoing growth in wealth management and trust and an increase in other non-interest income, which was partially offset by a decrease in mortgage banking and a loss on the disposition of available-for-sale securities. Total non-interest income for the year ended December 31, 2017, increased $1.6 million or 4% to $45.1 million from $43.5 million for 2016, reflecting trends similar to those noted for the fourth quarter along with higher service charges that were driven by growing treasury management services, bankcard transaction fees and bank-owned life insurance related to a death benefit on a former employee.

Total non-interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2017 increased approximately $5.9 million or 28% to $27.2 million from $21.3 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase primarily reflected higher amortization and impairment expense for investments in tax credit partnerships as well as increased health insurance costs under the Company's self-insured plan and higher other non-interest expense, the latter of which reflected benefits from certain items recorded in the fourth quarter of 2016 that did not recur in 2017. The sporadic timing of tax-credit partnership opportunities can cause corresponding expenses and tax benefits to vary widely. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company completed investments in additional tax-credit partnerships, which increased expense for the period. Expenses relating to partnership investments are recognized in the same period(s) as corresponding tax credits, with tax savings more than offsetting the expense. Tax savings from these additional fourth quarter investments exceeded corresponding expenses by $345 thousand. For the year ended December 31, 2017, total non-interest expense increased $9.5 million or 12% to $91.0 million from $81.5 million for 2016, largely reflecting the same trends noted for the quarter, as well as higher salaries related to the addition of personnel to support growth and operations.
