SOUTH BEND, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 1st Source Corporation (NASDAQ: SRCE), parent company of 1st Source Bank, today reported a record high net income of $16.67 million for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 15.13% compared to $14.48 million reported in the second quarter a year ago, bringing the 2017 year-to-date net income to $32.88 million compared to $28.30 million in 2016, an increase of 16.18%. The year-to-date net income comparison was positively impacted by gains on the sale of investment securities available-for-sale of $1.94 million net of an other than temporary impairment loss of $0.19 million and gains on the sale of fixed assets and leased equipment of $0.59 million. These increases were partially offset by the write-down of fixed assets of $0.41 million and a contribution to the 1st Source Foundation of $0.50 million.
Diluted net income per common share for the second quarter of 2017 was also a record high at $0.64, versus $0.56 in the second quarter of 2016. Diluted net income per common share for the first half of 2017 was $1.26 compared to the $1.08 earned a year earlier.
At its July 2017 meeting, the Board of Directors approved a cash dividend of $0.19 per common share. The cash dividend is payable to shareholders of record on August 7, 2017 and will be paid on August 15, 2017. This brings year-to-date dividends in 2017 to $0.56 per common share, an increase of 3.70% compared to $0.54 per common share at the same time last year.
According to Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman, “We are very pleased with our record net income in the second quarter as 1st Source Corporation continues to experience healthy growth in loans and leases and deposits. Credit quality remains stable with year-to-date net charge-offs of $367,000 or 0.02% of average loans and leases. Average loans and leases were up a solid 4.95% for the quarter compared to the same period a year ago. Average deposits have held steady with a 3.59% increase from this time last year. Net interest income has increased 8.44% from the second quarter 2016, along with noninterest income increasing 8.25% while noninterest expense growth was held to a 2.68% increase over the same quarter of 2016.”
“In April, we announced an exciting partnership with the South Bend Cubs. 1st Source Bank has a five-year sponsorship of the South Bend Cubs’ Performance Center located at Four Winds Field. This collaboration is an investment for the bank intended to produce new primary relationships and opportunities for growth in our home market.”
“Moreover, we recently completed the reopening of the North Calumet banking center on July 17, 2017. This new branch is a significant rebuild and an enhancement to the client experience and our service offerings in the Valparaiso market.”
“As always, we will continue to help our clients achieve security, build wealth and realize their dreams,” Mr. Murphy concluded.
SECOND QUARTER 2017 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Average loans and leases of $4.31 billion increased $203.17 million, or 4.95% in the second quarter of 2017 from the year ago quarter and have increased $121.05 million from the first quarter. Year-to-date average loans and leases of $4.25 billion increased $191.32 million, or 4.72% from the first six months of 2016.
Average deposits of $4.45 billion grew $154.57 million, or 3.59% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 from the year ago quarter and have increased $156.01 million, or 3.63% compared to the first quarter. Average deposits for the first six months of 2017 were $4.38 billion, an increase of $150.56 million or 3.56% from the same period a year ago.
Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin
Second quarter 2017 net interest income of $45.86 million increased $3.57 million, or 8.44% from the second quarter a year ago and increased $2.13 million, or 4.88% from the first quarter.
For the first six months of 2017, tax-equivalent net interest income was $90.51 million, an increase of $6.00 million, or 7.11% compared to the same period a year ago.
Second quarter 2017 net interest margin was 3.53%, an improvement of 12 basis points from the 3.41% for the same period in 2016 and increased 4 basis points from the 3.49% in the first quarter. Second quarter 2017 net interest margin on a fully tax-equivalent basis was 3.57%, an increase of 12 basis points from the 3.45% for the same period in 2016 and improved 4 basis points from the 3.53% in the first quarter.
Net interest margin for the first six months of 2017 was 3.51%, an increase of 10 basis points from the 3.41% for the same period in 2016. Net interest margin on a fully tax-equivalent basis for the first six months of 2017 was 3.55%, an increase of 10 basis points from the 3.45% for the same period in 2016.
Noninterest income increased $1.84 million or 8.25% and $3.52 million or 8.01% in the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017, respectively over the same periods a year ago. The growth in noninterest income during the second quarter and first six months of 2017 from the same periods a year ago was mainly due to gains on the sale of available-for-sale equity securities, higher equipment rental income related to an increase in the average equipment rental portfolio and increased trust and wealth advisory fees, which was offset by reduced partnership gains, resulting from the liquidation of an investment during 2016, lower mutual fund income and monogram fund income and decreased customer swap fees. The rise in noninterest income from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily a result of higher equipment rental income related to an increase in the average equipment rental portfolio, increased trust and wealth advisory fees and an improvement in mortgage banking income offset by a reduction in gains on the sale of available-for-sale equity securities and lower insurance contingent commissions.
Noninterest expense increased $1.07 million or 2.68% and $1.49 million or 1.84% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively over the comparable periods a year ago. Excluding depreciation on leased equipment, noninterest expenses were relatively flat for the second quarter and first six months of 2017. The increase in noninterest expense from the same quarter a year ago was primarily due to higher depreciation on leased equipment, increased professional fees and marketing promotions, offset by reduced group insurance claims, lower FDIC insurance assessments and gains on the sale of leased equipment. The increase in noninterest expense for the first six months of 2017 compared to the first six months of 2016 was mainly due to higher depreciation on leased equipment, increased charitable contributions and marketing promotions, and increased professional fees, offset by lower FDIC insurance assessments, reduced group insurance claims, fewer write-downs on fixed assets and gains on the sale of leased equipment.
The reserve for loan and lease losses as of June 30, 2017 was 2.10% of total loans and leases compared to 2.13% at March 31, 2017 and 2.20% at June 30, 2016. Net charge-offs of $0.94 million were recorded for the second quarter of 2017 compared with net recoveries of $0.11 million in the same quarter a year ago and $0.58 million of net recoveries in the first quarter. Year-to-date net charge-offs of $0.37 million have been recorded in 2017, compared to net recoveries of $0.32 million for the first half of 2016.
The ratio of nonperforming assets to loans and leases was 0.66% as of June 30, 2017, comparable to the 0.49% on June 30, 2016 and the 0.63% on March 31, 2017.
As of June 30, 2017, the common equity-to-assets ratio was 12.29%, compared to 12.47% at March 31, 2017 and 12.30% a year ago. The tangible common equity-to-tangible assets ratio was 10.98% at June 30, 2017 and 11.11% at March 31, 2017 compared to 10.90% a year earlier. The Common Equity Tier 1 ratio, calculated under banking regulatory guidelines, was 12.43% at June 30, 2017 compared to 12.69% at March 31, 2017 and 12.20% a year ago.

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.
