On January 16, 2019, the Company became the holding company for the Bank when it closed its stock offering in connection with the completion of the reorganization of the Bank and Rhinebeck Bancorp, MHC into a two-tier mutual holding company form of organization.  The Company sold 4,787,315 shares of common stock at a price of $10.00 per share, for net proceeds of $46.0 million, and issued 6,345,975 shares to Rhinebeck Bancorp, MHC.  The consolidated financial results contained herein reflect the consolidated accounts of the Company and the Bank at and for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2019 and Rhinebeck Bancorp, MHC and the Bank for the same periods ended September 30, 2018 and at December 31, 2018.

Other financial highlights:

  • Total assets grew $63.6 million, or 7.2%, to $946.0 million from December 31, 2018.
  • Net loans increased a total of $80.6 million, or 11.9%, to $759.0 million from year end 2018.
  • Total deposit balances were $770.0 million at September 30, 2019, increasing $85.6 million, or 12.5%, during the nine months then ended.
  • Return on average assets was 0.90% for the three month period ended September 30, 2019 compared to 0.97% for the corresponding period of 2018. Return on average assets was 0.63% for the nine month period ended September 30, 2019 compared to 0.55% for the comparable prior year period.
  • Return on average equity was 7.78% for the third quarter 2019 compared to 13.80% for the same period of 2018. Return on average equity was 5.56% for the nine month period ended September 30, 2019 compared to 7.64% for the same period of 2018.

Michael J. Quinn, President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are pleased with the progress made this year in our goals of growing our balance sheet through growth of both loans and deposits while improving our overall net income.  Additionally, our efforts to improve loan quality and our efficiency ratio continued during the quarter."

Income Statement Analysis

Net interest income increased $734,000, or 9.5%, to $8.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, from $7.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Year to date net interest income increased $3.1 million, or 14.7%, over the same timeframe in 2018, to $24.0 million. In both comparable periods, interest income increases were mostly driven by increasing originations of higher yielding indirect automobile loans accompanied by additional production of commercial real estate loans while increases in deposit pricing and borrowing costs were primarily driven by competitive market forces and the changing interest rate environment.

Our net interest margin declined 25 basis points to 3.85% when comparing between quarters and declined 9 basis points to 3.80% when looking at the respective nine month periods.  

We recorded $450,000 in provision for loan losses for the third quarter 2019 and $2.0 million for the first nine months of 2019 as compared to $525,000 and $1.6 million, respectively, for the comparable prior year periods.  Net charge-offs for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 totaled $405,000, and year to date totaled $753,000, compared to $154,000 and $722,000, for the respective periods in 2018. 

Non-interest income totaled $1.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019; a decrease of $39,000, or 2.6%, from the comparable period in the prior year.  Year to date 2019, non-interest income totaled $4.2 million, an increase of $526,000, or 14.5%.  A new deposit fee schedule, retail operating improvements and significant growth in investment advisory income at our Rhinebeck Asset Management ("RAM") division were primary drivers of this outcome. An other real estate owned ("OREO") write-down that occurred in the first quarter of 2018, of $387,000, also improved the nine month period's 2019 comparative performance.

For the third quarter of 2019, non-interest expenses increased $359,000 to $6.8 million, over the comparable 2018 period. Salaries and employee benefits increased $343,000, or 9.5%, attributable to annual salary merit increases, production incentives, employee benefit increases and additions to staff.  The growth of other general operating expenses was mainly due to increases in overall processing volumes, the additions of new technologies and equipment, and additional costs related to our new status as a public company.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, non-interest expenses increased $1.6 million, or 8.1% to $20.8 million, as compared to the first nine months of last year.  Year to date salaries and employee benefits increased $1.4 million, or 13.3%.  In 2019, both comparative periods were positively impacted by a large reduction in our FDIC assessment and the recovery of foreclosure expenses of $115,000. Non-recurring expenses in 2018 for additional funds to prepare a foreclosure property for sale and an impairment loss of $95,000 related to RAM helped improve comparative results.

Balance Sheet Analysis

Total assets were $946.0 million at September 30, 2019, representing an increase of $63.6 million, or 7.2%, from $882.4 million at December 31, 2018. Cash and due from banks decreased $32.2 million during the period primarily as a result of a return of $41.1 million in unfulfilled offering subscriptions in January 2019. The available for sale securities balance increased $14.4 million mostly due to $28.4 million in mortgage-backed securities purchases partially offset by sales and calls of $5.6 million and principal payments and maturities of $12.0 million. Net loans increased $80.6 million, or 11.9%, including an increase of $55.7 million in indirect automobile loan balances due to production of $160.7 million of those loans since year end. During the first nine months of this year, commercial real estate balances increased by $22.6 million or 10.2%.

Past due loans increased $3.8 million, or 30.4%, between year end and September 30, 2019 finishing at 2.1% of total loans, or $16.2 million.  During the same timeframe non-performing assets rose $2.9 million or 39.7%, to $10.3 million. Our reserve as a percentage of total gross loans was 1.04% at September 30, 2019.

Premises and equipment increases reflect the recent purchase of the building in Goshen which houses our branch operation for $1.8 million.

Total liabilities increased $14.7 million, or 1.8%, to $837.8 million mainly due to an $85.6 million, or 12.5%, increase in deposits, an increase of $16.3 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances, offset by a $5.0 million line of credit pay-down and the release of $89.0 million in gross subscription offering proceeds in January 2019.

Stockholders' equity increased $49.0 million to $108.3 million, primarily due to proceeds from the common stock offering of $46.0 million. At September 30, 2019, the Company's ratio of stockholders' equity-to-total assets was 11.4%, compared to 6.7% at December 31, 2018.
