1st Source Corporation (NASDAQ: SRCE), parent company of 1st Source Bank, today reported record quarterly net income of $30.22 million for the second quarter of 2021, up 63.35% from the $18.50 million reported in the second quarter a year ago, bringing the 2021 year-to-date net income to $58.33 million compared to $34.92 million in 2020, an increase of 67.06%. Diluted net income per common share for the second quarter of 2021 was up 65.28% to $1.19 versus $0.72 in the second quarter of 2020. Diluted net income per common share for the first half of 2021 was $2.29 compared to $1.36 a year earlier, a 68.38% increase.
Year-to-date net income and earnings per share were positively impacted by providing $22.36 million less in the provision for credit losses compared to the provision for the prior year. This is a result of improved economic conditions this year compared to the extraordinarily uncertain circumstances presented by the pandemic a year ago.
At its July 2021 meeting, the Board of Directors approved a cash dividend of $0.31 per common share, up 10.71% from the $0.28 per common share declared a year ago. The cash dividend is payable to shareholders of record on August 3, 2021 and will be paid on August 13, 2021.
Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to have achieved record net income for the second consecutive quarter. Credit uncertainty continues to improve substantially which resulted in a reduction to our provision for credit losses. In addition, our clients continued to receive Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness during the second quarter. Total PPP loans forgiven during 2021 were $291.32 million which provided $5.68 million in accelerated fee income. We are optimistic that continued vaccination adoption among the communities and businesses we serve will sustain the positive economic momentum we have seen over the last three months.
“Throughout the pandemic, our focus has remained on keeping our clients, our colleagues and families safe so we can deliver the highest level of service. Vaccination rates among our colleagues has grown steadily, and as an organization, we have reached a high level of inoculation. As mentioned last quarter, our lobbies are open, and once again our bankers are able to more freely meet with business and consumer clients (following CDC guidelines with masking and social distancing recommendations) than was the case in the last year. We’re confident we are doing our best to ensure the safety and well-being of all those we serve and employ while also getting back to a sense of ‘business as usual’ for all our clients. As new variants of COVID develop, we will continue to review and analyze data from local health departments to make the best decisions possible for the health and safety of our team members, clients and communities.
“We were very pleased to learn during the second quarter that 1st Source had been named among the Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc. (KBW) Bank Honor Roll for the third consecutive year. We are proud to be one of the 16 honorees to earn this recognition out of 365 banking institutions analyzed. To be considered, banks must be publicly traded institutions with more than $500 million in total assets and must have had 10 consecutive years of increased earnings per share. For the 2021 list, to account for the impact that the adoption of the current expected credit loss (CECL) accounting methodology had on 2020 earnings, KBW modified some inclusion criteria. Banks that met the annual earnings per share growth requirements for all years save 2020 were eligible for inclusion, if in 2020, they reported an annual profit and annual pre-tax, pre-provision net income per share growth. It is a focus on quality earnings, investing for the future, building a strong balance sheet, capital, and reserves that earned 1st Source this recognition and has allowed us to continue to meet the challenges that the pandemic has presented. Receiving this recognition for the third year in a row is a great honor, and it’s a welcome confirmation, after a year of unprecedented challenges, that our focus on the long-term has been successful.
“Lastly, we announced the election of Tracy D. Graham, Managing Principal of Graham Allen Partners, LLC and Chief Executive Officer of Aunalytics, Inc., and Ronda Shrewsbury, President and Chief Executive Officer of RealAmerica, LLC to our Board of Directors. We are pleased our shareholders voted to add these strong leaders to our Board of Directors and we are certain they will help the Company deliver on its mission to help our clients achieve security, build wealth and realize their dreams by living our values and keeping our clients’ best interest in mind for the long-term. Their backgrounds and experience blend well with our already strong Board, and their strategic guidance, and diversity of thought and perspective will add value to the future of our organization. Also, two current members, Melody Birmingham, who serves as Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of Duke Energy, and Mark D. Schwabero, retired Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Brunswick Corporation in 2018, were reelected to the Board of 1st Source Corporation. All four directors have been elected to terms that end April 2024 and will be subject to reelection at that time,” Mr. Murphy concluded.
SECOND QUARTER 2021 FINANCIAL RESULTSLoans
Average loans and leases of $5.52 billion decreased $49.77 million, or 0.89% in the second quarter of 2021 from the year ago quarter and were relatively flat from the previous quarter. Year-to-date average loans and leases of $5.51 billion increased $175.46 million, up 3.29% from the first six months of 2020. Loan runoff is primarily from SBA forgiveness of PPP loans offset by growth in the solar and aircraft portfolios when compared to the second quarter of 2020. During the second quarter 2021, SBA forgiveness totaled $158.41 million which was offset by PPP originations of $29.02 million. During the first six months of 2021, SBA forgiveness totaled $291.32 million which was offset by PPP originations of $261.46 million. PPP loans amounted to $315.09 million as of June 30, 2021.Deposits
Average deposits of $6.28 billion grew $468.08 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, up 8.06% from the year ago quarter and increased $298.18 million, up 4.99% from the previous quarter. Average deposits for the first six months of 2021 were $6.13 billion, an increase of $588.91 million, up 10.63% from the same period a year ago. Deposit growth is primarily from PPP loan fundings, increased consumer deposit levels compared to 2020 and seasonal public fund activity.Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin
Second quarter 2021 tax-equivalent net interest income of $57.05 million increased $2.92 million, or 5.38% from the second quarter a year ago and decreased $0.48 million, or 0.83% from the first quarter of 2021. For the first six months of 2021, tax-equivalent net interest income was $114.59 million, an increase of $5.45 million, or 5.00% compared to the same period a year ago.
Second quarter 2021 net interest margin was 3.14%, a decrease of nine basis points from the 3.23% for the same period in 2020 and a decrease of 21 basis points from the previous quarter. Second quarter 2021 net interest margin on a fully tax-equivalent basis was 3.15%, a decrease of nine basis points from the 3.24% for the same period in 2020 and was lower by 20 basis points compared to the previous quarter. The margin continues to experience pressure from the low interest rate environment and excess liquidity. PPP loans had a positive impact on the net interest margin of one basis point for the quarter due to accelerated PPP loan origination fee amortization as a result of SBA forgiveness compared to a negative impact of four basis points in the same period a year ago. We recognized $2.59 million in PPP loan fees during the second quarter of 2021. During the prior quarter, PPP loans had a positive impact on the net interest margin of 10 basis points and we recognized $3.98 million in PPP loan fees.
Net interest margin for the first six months of 2021 was 3.24%, a decrease of 15 basis points from the 3.39% for the same period in 2020. Net interest margin on a fully-taxable-equivalent basis for the first half of 2021 was 3.25%, a decrease of 15 basis points from the 3.40% for the first half of 2020. The margin continues to experience pressure from the low interest rate environment and excess liquidity. PPP loans had a positive impact on the net interest margin of five basis points for the first half of 2021 compared to a negative impact of five basis points during the first half of 2020.Noninterest Income
Second quarter 2021 noninterest income of $24.90 million decreased $0.34 million, or 1.36% from the second quarter a year ago and decreased $0.97 million, or 3.75% from the first quarter of 2021. For the first six months of 2021, noninterest income was $50.77 million, an increase of $0.90 million, up 1.81% from the same period a year ago.
Noninterest income was lower compared to the second quarter a year ago mainly from less equipment rental income as demand for leases declined, realized losses on the sale of available-for-sale debt securities due to repositioning in the investment portfolio and reduced mortgage banking income resulting from a lower sales volume offset by increased debit card income as transaction levels improved, higher trust and wealth advisory fees as market values improved on assets under management, and a rise in service charges on deposit accounts.
The decrease in noninterest income from the prior quarter was mainly due to reduced mortgage banking income resulting from lower sales volume, realized losses on the sale of available-for-sale debt securities due to repositioning in the investment portfolio and fewer contingent insurance commissions offset by higher trust and wealth advisory fees as market values improved on assets under management and a rise in debit card income as transaction levels improved.
Additionally, we recognized $0.59 million in impairment recoveries on our mortgage servicing rights during 2021.Noninterest Expense
Second quarter 2021 noninterest expense was relatively flat from the second quarter a year ago and increased $1.06 million, or 2.40% from the prior quarter. Excluding depreciation on leased equipment, noninterest expenses were up 4.95% from the second quarter a year ago and up 3.17% from the prior quarter. For the first six months of 2021, noninterest expense was $89.34 million, a decrease of $2.02 million, down 2.21% compared to the same period a year ago.
The increase in noninterest expense from the prior quarter was primarily the result of a higher valuation provision for interest rate swaps with customers, higher salaries and wages due to incentive awards and normal merit increases, and a rise in legal and consulting fees offset by a decrease in the provision for unfunded loan commitments and lower leased equipment depreciation as the average equipment rental portfolio continues to decline.Credit
The allowance for loan and lease losses as of June 30, 2021 was 2.49% of total loans and leases compared to 2.53% at March 31, 2021 and 2.31% at June 30, 2020 (incurred loss method). The allowance calculation includes PPP loans which are guaranteed by the SBA. Excluding these loans from the calculation results in an allowance of 2.63% at June 30, 2021, compared to 2.74% at March 31, 2021 and 2.73% at December 31, 2020. Net charge-offs of $0.16 million were recorded for the second quarter of 2021 compared with net recoveries of $0.11 million in the same quarter a year ago and $3.50 million of net charge-offs in the prior quarter. The majority of charge-offs in 2021 were related to the bus division of the auto and light truck portfolio which continues to be impacted by the lingering impact the pandemic has had on events and tourism.
The provision for credit losses was a recovery of $3.03 million for the second quarter of 2021, a decrease of $13.40 million compared with the same period in 2020 and a decrease of $5.42 million from the first quarter of 2021. The ratio of nonperforming assets to loans and leases was 1.06% as of June 30, 2021, compared to 1.12% on March 31, 2021 and 1.20% on June 30, 2020. Excluding PPP loans, the ratio of non-performing assets to loans and leases was 1.13% at June 30, 2021, 1.22% at March 31, 2021 and 1.33% at June 30, 2020.Capital
As of June 30, 2021, the common equity-to-assets ratio was 11.68%, compared to 11.87% at March 31, 2021 and 11.74% a year ago.
