POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., Feb. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rhinebeck Bancorp, Inc., (the "Company") (NASDAQ: RBKB), the holding company of Rhinebeck Bank (the "Bank"), reported net income for the three months ended December 31, 2019 of $1.7 million ($0.16 per basic and diluted common share), $542,000, or 45.2%, more than the $1.2 million reported for the comparable prior year period, and $6.0 million ($0.56 per basic and diluted common share) for the year-ended December 31, 2019, which was $1.6 million, or 36.9%, greater than the $4.4 million for last year.

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 twelve month periods ended December 31, 2019 and Rhinebeck Bancorp, MHC and the Bank at and for the same periods ended December 31, 2018.

Other financial highlights:

  • Total assets grew $91.5 million, or 10.4%, to $973.9 million at December 31, 2019 from December 31, 2018.
  • Net loans increased a total of $115.1 million, or 17.0%, to $793.5 million at December 31, 2019 from year-end 2018.
  • Total deposit balances were $773.3 million at December 31, 2019, increasing $88.9 million, or 13.0%, from December 31, 2018.
  • Return on average assets was 0.72% for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2019 compared to 0.56% for the corresponding period of 2018. Return on average assets was 0.65% for the year-ended December 31, 2019 compared to 0.55% for 2018.
  • Return on average equity was 6.32% for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 8.31% for the same period of 2018. Return on average equity was 5.73% for the year-ended December 31, 2019 compared to 7.82% for 2018.
  • Our efficiency ratio improved 3.8%, falling to 72.98% for the fourth quarter of 2019 from 75.84% in the same quarter of 2018. Year over year the ratio improved 5.2% falling to 73.73% for 2019.

Michael J. Quinn, President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "In a year that presented a much different interest rate environment than initially expected, we made substantial progress in meeting our growth goals for the Bank while improving our profitability and efficiency.  Our loan growth, deposit growth, and improvement in profitability are the result of great efforts by our staff to execute our strategic plan."

Income Statement Analysis

Net interest income increased $771,000, or 10.3%, to $8.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, from $7.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. Our full year net interest income increased $3.8 million, or 13.5%, over 2018, to $32.2 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. This additional revenue was offset by increases in deposit pricing and borrowing costs that were primarily driven by competitive market forces and the changing interest rate environment.

Our net interest margin declined 15 basis points to 3.65% compared to the prior year quarter and declined 11 basis points to 3.76% compared to the prior year.  

We recorded a provision for loan losses of $450,000 for the fourth quarter 2019 and $2.5 million for the 2019 year as compared to $525,000 and $2.1 million, respectively, for the comparable prior year periods. Net charge-offs for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 totaled $2.4 million, and for the year totaled $3.2 million, compared to $189,000 and $911,000, for the respective periods in 2018. Two larger commercial real estate loans became impaired and were partially charged off in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Non-interest income totaled $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019; a decrease of $77,000, or 5.0%, from the comparable period in the prior year.  Both service charges on deposit accounts and investment advisory income decreased quarter over quarter but increased year over year. Non-interest income totaled $5.6 million for 2019, an increase of $449,000, or 8.7% from 2018.  A new deposit fee schedule, retail operating improvements and growth in investment advisory income at our Rhinebeck Asset Management ("RAM") division were primary drivers of this outcome. An other real estate owned write-down that occurred in the first quarter of 2018, of $387,000, also improved the 2019 comparative performance.

For the fourth quarter of 2019, non-interest expenses increased $247,000 to $7.1 million, or 3.6%, over the comparable 2018 period. Salaries and employee benefits increased $97,000, or 2.5%, attributable to annual salary merit increases, production incentives, employee benefit increases and additions to staff.  The growth of other non-interest expense 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 year-ended December 31, 2019, non-interest expenses increased $1.8 million, or 6.9% to $27.9 million, as compared to December 31, 2018.  Year over year, salaries and employee benefits increased $1.5 million, or 10.4%.  In 2019, both comparative periods were positively impacted by a large reduction in our FDIC assessment. 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 goodwill helped improve comparative results in 2019.

Balance Sheet Analysis

Total assets were $973.9 million at December 31, 2019, representing an increase of $91.5 million, or 10.4%, from $882.4 million at December 31, 2018. Cash and due from banks decreased $38.6 million during the year primarily as a result of a return of $41.1 million in unfulfilled stock offering subscriptions in January 2019. The available for sale securities balance increased $13.5 million mostly due to $38.7 million in mortgage-backed securities purchases, $2.3 million in bank subordinated debt purchases, and a $3.0 million reduction in the portfolio's unrealized loss during the 2019 period, partially offset by sales and calls of $12.0 million and principal payments and maturities of $18.3 million. Net loans increased $115.1 million, or 17.0%, including an increase of $65.2 million in indirect automobile loan balances due to production of $202.3 million of those loans during 2019. Commercial real estate balances increased by $45.5 million or 20.4% in 2019.

Past due loans increased $5.2 million, or 41.7%, between December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2019 finishing at 2.2% of total loans, or $17.6 million, increasing from 1.8% at year-end 2018.  During the same timeframe, non-performing assets rose $3.0 million or 40.5%, to $10.3 million. Our reserve as a percentage of total gross loans was 0.75% at December 31, 2019 as compared to 0.98% at December 31, 2018, primarily due to prior year favorable loss experience.

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

During 2019, total liabilities increased $40.9 million, or 5.0%, to $864.1 million mainly due to an $88.9 million, or 13.0%, increase in deposits, primarily certificates of deposit, and an increase of $34.7 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances, offset by a $5.0 million line of credit pay-down and the release of $88.9 million in gross subscription offering proceeds in January 2019.

Stockholders' equity increased $50.6 million to $109.9 million at December 31, 2019, primarily due to the net proceeds from the common stock offering of $46.0 million. At December 31, 2019, the Company's ratio of stockholders' equity-to-total assets was 11.3%, compared to 6.7% at December 31, 2018.
