Parkway Acquisition Corp. Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results
FLOYD, Va. and INDEPENDENCE, Va., Nov. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 9, 2018, Parkway Acquisition Corp. ("Parkway" or the "Company") (OTC QX: PKKW) – the holding company for Skyline National Bank ("Skyline") – announced third quarter 2018 earnings.
As previously announced, Parkway and Great State Bank ("Great State") merged on July 1, 2018, with Parkway as the surviving corporation. (For accounting purposes, Parkway is considered the acquiror and Great State is considered the acquiree in the transaction. As such, all information contained herein as of and for periods prior to July 1, 2018 reflects the operations of Parkway prior to the merger.)
Results of Operations for the Three Months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017
Parkway recorded net income of $1.7 million, or $0.28 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 compared to net income of $1.2 million, or $0.23 per share, for the same period in 2017. Pre-tax earnings totaled $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to pre-tax earnings of $1.7 million for the same period in 2017. The increase in net income of $558 thousand from the third quarter of 2017 to the third quarter of 2018 was due primarily to the merger with Great State which was completed on July 1, 2018.
Total interest income increased by $1.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2017, while interest expense on deposits increased by $188 thousand over the same period. The increase in interest income was attributable primarily to the merger with Great State which added approximately $95.1 million in loans to the Company's earning assets. Accretion of purchased loan discounts increased interest income by $443 thousand in the third quarter of 2018 compared to just $227 thousand in the third quarter of 2017, representing an increase of $216 thousand. The increase came mainly as a result of the Great State merger.
Interest expense on deposits increased by $188 thousand due to the addition of interest-bearing deposits from the Great State merger. Amortization of premiums on acquired time deposits, which reduces interest expense, totaled $144 thousand in the third quarter of 2018, compared to just $45 thousand in the third quarter of 2017, representing an increase of $99 thousand. The increase, again was primarily due to the Great State merger.
The provision for loan losses was $113 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to $75 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The reserve for loan losses at September 30, 2018 was approximately 0.64% of total loans compared to 0.83% at September 30, 2017. Management's estimate of probable credit losses inherent in the acquired Great State loan portfolio was reflected as a purchase discount which will continue to be accreted into income over the remaining life of the acquired loans in addition to the previously acquired loan portfolio from the merger with Cardinal Bankshares Corporation. As of September 30, 2018, the remaining unaccreted discount on the acquired loan portfolios totaled $5.5 million.
Total noninterest income was $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2018 compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2017. The increase was due to the merger with Great State as well as nonrecurring income from life insurance contracts totaling $74 thousand.
Total noninterest expenses increased by $1.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2017, due to the Great State acquisition as well as an increase in employee benefit costs, as actual health insurance claims have exceeded both current year expected claims as well as prior year actual claims. As a result of the Great State acquisition and the increased health insurance costs, total salary and benefit costs increased by $672 thousand for the third quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter in 2017.
Income tax expense decreased from $520 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 to $420 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, despite the increase in pre-tax earnings, due to a reduction in tax rates pursuant to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which became effective January 1, 2018 and reduced the Company's marginal federal income tax rate from 34% to 21%.
Results of Operations for the Nine Months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017
For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, total interest income increased by $2.0 million compared to the nine-month period ended September 30, 2017. The increase in interest income was attributable primarily to the merger with Great State as discussed above. Accretion of purchased loan discounts increased interest income by $803 thousand in the first nine months of 2017 compared to just $730 thousand in the first nine months of 2018, representing a decrease of $73 thousand.
Interest expense on deposits increased by $189 thousand due to the addition of interest-bearing deposits from the Great State merger. Amortization of premiums on acquired time deposits, which reduces interest expense, totaled $197 thousand in the first nine months of 2018, compared to $192 thousand in the first nine months of 2017. Interest on borrowings increased by $32 thousand due to overnight borrowings which were accessed in the second and third quarters of 2018 along with FHLB Advances that were acquired as part of the Great State merger.
The provision for loan losses for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018 was $258 thousand, compared to $233 thousand for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2017.
Noninterest income increased by $519 thousand for the first nine months of 2018, compared to the same period in 2017. The increase was due to the merger with Great State as well as nonrecurring proceeds from life insurance contracts totaling $303 thousand in 2018. Securities gains decreased by $121 thousand for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period last year as increases in interest rates led to decreases in the market value of the Bank's investment securities portfolio.
Total noninterest expenses increased by $1.3 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same period in 2017. The increase was due primarily to the Great State acquisition and the increase in benefit costs discussed above. Salaries and employee benefits increased by $930 thousand in 2018 compared to 2017.
In total, income before taxes increased by $885 thousand over the first nine months of 2018 compared to the first nine months of 2017. Income tax expense decreased by $202 thousand over the prior year, resulting in an increase in net income of $1.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period in 2017.
Effective July 1, 2018 the Company completed its previously announced merger with Great State, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated March 1, 2018. In connection with the merger with Great State, the Company acquired $145.5 million in assets at fair value, including $95.1 million in loans. The Company also assumed $133.6 million of liabilities at fair value, including $130.6 million of total deposits with a core deposit intangible asset recorded of $2.4 million, and goodwill of $3.8 million.
With the Great State merger, total assets increased by $131.7 million from December 31, 2017 to September 30, 2018. Net loans increased by $112.6 million, federal funds sold increased by $11.4 million, and interest-bearing deposits in banks increased by $741 thousand.
Total deposits increased by $112.9 million from December 31, 2017 to September 30, 2018 as a result of the merger. Noninterest bearing deposits increased by $21.1 million from December 31, 2017 to September 30, 2018, while interest bearing deposits increased by $91.8 million over the same time period. FHLB Advances increased by $1.0 million due to the merger with Great State.
Stockholders' equity totaled $74.4 million at September 30, 2018 compared to $57.2 million at December 31, 2017, an increase of $17.2 million. $15.5 million of the increase is due to the issuance of common stock in connection with the merger with Great State. The remaining increase was due to earnings of $3.7 million, less a net change in unrealized depreciation of investment securities classified as available for sale totaling $846 thousand, and the payment of dividends of $1.1 million. Book value increased from $11.39 per share at December 31, 2017 to $11.98 per share at September 30, 2018. Skyline remains well capitalized with Common equity tier 1 capital, Tier 1 risk-based capital, Total risk based capital, and Tier 1 leverage ratios of 12.05%, 12.05%, 12.68%, and 9.78%, respectively, as of September 30, 2018.
