South Bend, IN – 1st Source Corporation (NASDAQ: SRCE), parent company of 1st Source Bank, today reported record quarterly net income of $32.74 million for the third quarter of 2022, up 0.78% from the $32.48 million reported in the third quarter a year ago, bringing the 2022 year-to-date net income to $89.44 million compared to $90.81 million in 2021. Diluted net income per common share for the third quarter of 2022 was $1.32 versus $1.29 in the third quarter of 2021.

At its October 2022 meeting, the Board of Directors approved a cash dividend of $0.32 per common share, up 3.23% from the $0.31 per common share declared a year ago. The cash dividend is payable to shareholders of record on November 1, 2022 and will be paid on November 10, 2022.
Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to announce that we had record net income for the third quarter. Average loans grew $451.88 million or 8.74% net of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans from the third quarter last year. Average deposits increased $271.40 million, up 4.24% from the prior year third quarter. Our tax-equivalent net interest margin for the quarter was 3.60% compared to 3.34% in the prior year third quarter. The expansion in our net interest margin over the last two quarters has been largely the result of numerous Federal Reserve rate increases during the first nine months of this year. As the Federal Reserve continues its attempt to cool down runaway inflation without triggering a recession, continued rate changes are a distinct possibility and deposit rate competition will likely have an impact on the margin expansion we have seen over the last two quarters. We are very proud to have achieved record net income and impressive loan growth during the quarter but must be focused on organic, core deposit growth as we move into the next quarter and beyond.
“It was a welcome surprise and honor when two of our board members were named to the inaugural Indiana 250 list by IBJ Media this quarter. Isaac Torres, our newest board member and founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of InterCambio Express, Inc., as well as Tracy Graham, Managing Principal of Graham-Allen Partners, LLC and Chief Executive Officer of Aunalytics, Inc. were among those recognized. The Indiana 250 is a list of the state’s most influential community and business leaders, representing the sectors of civic leadership, energy and agriculture, financial and business services, healthcare and life sciences, hospitality, entertainment and arts, law, manufacturing and logistics, non-for-profit, education, real estate, and tech and media. The Indiana 250 was compiled by IBJ Media’s staff and executives after months of reviewing nominations, researching Indiana organizations and interviewing community leaders across the state. We are thrilled to have Isaac and Tracy as members of our board, and we greatly value their thoughtfulness and contributions to the work we do. It’s a great honor to have those who are helping shape our future be applauded and celebrated among the leadership community in our state, and we congratulate them on this much-deserved recognition of their vision and accomplishments. Additionally, due to the great work of everyone on the 1st Source team with the shared goal of serving customers’ needs, I was also recognized among the Indiana 250. I have been honored by the recognition and thank my colleagues for helping make that happen,” Mr. Murphy concluded.
THIRD QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Third quarter average loans and leases of $5.63 billion increased $451.88 million, up 8.74% net of PPP loans from the year ago quarter and increased $177.10 million, up 3.25% net of PPP loans from the previous quarter. Year-to-date average loans and leases of $5.47 billion increased $324.88 million, up 6.34% net of PPP loans from the first nine months of 2021. PPP loans of $6.35 million remained outstanding which is net of $0.13 million in unearned fees as of September 30, 2022. Strong growth primarily within our specialty finance group portfolios drove total average loans and leases higher compared to the third quarter of 2021 and the previous quarter.
Average deposits of $6.67 billion grew $271.40 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, up 4.24% from the year ago quarter and decreased $122.55 million, down 1.80% from the previous quarter. Average deposits for the first nine months of 2022 were $6.70 billion, an increase of $473.64 million, up 7.61% from the same period a year ago. Deposit growth over the last year came from business and consumer clients while brokered deposits have declined.
Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin
Third quarter 2022 tax-equivalent net interest income of $69.12 million increased $6.78 million, up 10.88% from the third quarter a year ago and grew $5.53 million, up 8.70% from the previous quarter. For the first nine months of 2022, tax-equivalent net interest income was $192.43 million, an increase of $15.51 million, up 8.76% from the first nine months of 2021. We recognized $0.08 million in PPP loan fees during the quarter and $2.58 million during the first nine months of 2022 compared to $6.69 million in the previous year quarter and $13.26 million during the first nine months of 2021.
Third quarter 2022 net interest margin was 3.59%, an increase of 26 basis points from the 3.33% for the same period in 2021 and an increase of 28 basis points from the previous quarter. On a fully tax-equivalent basis, third quarter 2022 net interest margin was 3.60%, an increase of 26 basis points from the 3.34% for the same period in 2021 and was higher by 28 basis points compared to the previous quarter. Non-recurring items during the quarter contributed seven basis points of the 28-basis point increase. Those items include lower interest expense on mandatorily redeemable securities due to book value adjustments of five basis points and net interest recoveries of two basis points.
Net interest margin for the first nine months of 2022 was 3.36%, an increase of nine basis points from the 3.27% for the first nine months of 2021. Net interest margin on a fully-tax-equivalent basis for the first nine months of 2022 was 3.37%, an increase of nine basis points from the 3.28% from the prior year. PPP loans had a positive impact on the net margin of four basis points for the first nine months of 2022 and 14 basis points for the first nine months of 2021.
Multiple Federal Reserve rate increases during 2022 contributed to net interest margin expansion as loans repriced faster than deposits during the second and third quarters of 2022.
Third quarter 2022 noninterest income of $22.01 million decreased $3.49 million, or 13.69% from the third quarter a year ago and decreased $0.82 million, or 3.60% from the second quarter of 2022. For the first nine months of 2022, noninterest income was $67.98 million, a decrease of $8.28 million, or 10.86% from the same period a year ago.
The reduction for both periods is mainly from reduced mortgage banking origination volumes resulting in lower income from loans sold in the secondary market. Demand for mortgages has continued to decline as higher rates have negatively impacted refinancing volumes. Equipment rental income continued to shrink as demand for leases declined. This was offset by a rise in service charges on deposit accounts and the absence of losses on the sale of investment securities. The decline in noninterest income from the prior quarter was mainly due to lower trust and wealth advisory income as a result of seasonal fee income recognized in the second quarter.
Third quarter 2022 noninterest expense of $45.33 million decreased $2.73 million, or 5.69% from the third quarter a year ago and decreased $0.32 million, or 0.71% from the prior quarter. For the first nine months of 2022, noninterest expense was $136.32 million, a decrease of $1.08 million, or 0.79% compared to the same period in 2021.
The decrease in noninterest expense for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2022 compared to a year ago was mainly the result of lower charitable contributions, decreased leased equipment depreciation as the average equipment rental portfolio continues to decline, fewer legal fees and a reduction in group insurance costs offset by higher data processing charges for technology projects, an increase in the interest rate swap valuation provision and a rise in professional consulting fees.
The decrease in noninterest expense from the prior quarter was primarily the result of a reduction in the loan loss provision for unfunded loan commitments, decreased legal fees and lower leased equipment depreciation offset by higher data processing charges for technology projects, fewer gains on the sale of repossessed assets and an increase in the interest rate swap valuation provision.
The allowance for loan and lease losses as of September 30, 2022 was 2.36% of total loans and leases compared to 2.39% at June 30, 2022 and 2.50% at September 30, 2021. The allowance calculation includes PPP loans which are guaranteed by the SBA. Excluding these loans from the calculation results in an allowance which was unchanged at September 30, 2022, compared to 2.40% at June 30, 2022 and 2.58% at September 30, 2021. Net charge-offs of $0.30 million were recorded for the third quarter of 2022 compared with net charge-offs of $0.04 million in the same quarter a year ago and $0.40 million of net recoveries in the prior quarter. The majority of charge-offs during the quarter were related to the commercial and agricultural and consumer portfolios.
The provision for credit losses was $3.17 million for the third quarter of 2022, an increase of $5.73 million compared with the same period in 2021 and an increase of $0.66 million from the previous quarter. The increase in provision for credit losses during the quarter was primarily due to loan growth. The ratio of nonperforming assets to loans and leases was 0.48% as of September 30, 2022, compared to 0.60% on June 30, 2022 and 0.84% on September 30, 2021. Excluding PPP loans, the ratio of non-performing assets to loans and leases was unchanged at September 30, 2022 and June 30, 2022 and 0.87% at September 30, 2021. While nonperforming assets showed improvement during the quarter, the allowance for loan and lease losses increased at September 30, 2022 due to loan growth.
As of September 30, 2022, the common equity-to-assets ratio was 10.20%, compared to 10.66% at June 30, 2022 and 11.44% a year ago. The tangible common equity-to-tangible assets ratio was 9.26% at September 30, 2022 compared to 9.72% at June 30, 2022 and 10.50% a year earlier. The Common Equity Tier 1 ratio, calculated under banking regulatory guidelines, was 13.50% at September 30, 2022 compared to 13.79% at June 30, 2022 and 13.65% a year ago.
Book value per share declined to $33.50 primarily due to non-credit-related, negative market value adjustments to our investment securities available-for-sale portfolio during the quarter. Market value adjustments were the result of changes in interest rates, market spreads and market conditions subsequent to purchase.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
The accounting and reporting policies of 1st Source conform to generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States and prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, certain non-GAAP performance measures are used by management to evaluate and measure the Company’s performance. Although these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors to evaluate a financial institution, they have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analyses of results as reported under GAAP. These include taxable-equivalent net interest income (including its individual components), net interest margin (including its individual components), the efficiency ratio, tangible common equity-to-tangible assets ratio and tangible book value per common share. Management believes that these measures provide users of the Company’s financial information a more meaningful view of the performance of the interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities and of the Company’s operating efficiency. Other financial holding companies may define or calculate these measures differently.
Management reviews yields on certain asset categories and the net interest margin of the Company and its banking subsidiaries on a fully taxable-equivalent (“FTE”) basis. In this non-GAAP presentation, net interest income is adjusted to reflect tax-exempt interest income on an equivalent before-tax basis. This measure ensures comparability of net interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources. Net interest income on a FTE basis is also used in the calculation of the Company’s efficiency ratio. The efficiency ratio, which is calculated by dividing non-interest expense by total taxable-equivalent net revenue (less securities gains or losses and lease depreciation), measures how much it costs to produce one dollar of revenue. Securities gains or losses and lease depreciation are excluded from this calculation to better match revenue from daily operations to operational expenses. Management considers the tangible common equity-to-tangible assets ratio and tangible book value per common share as useful measurements of the Company’s equity.
