First Capital, Inc. Reports Quarterly Earnings

CORYDON, Indiana, July 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — First Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: FCAP), the holding company for First Harrison Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $2.7 million or $0.81 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to $2.7 million or $0.82 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $587,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021. Interest income increased $765,000 when comparing the periods due to an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $1.02 billion for the second quarter of 2021 to $1.14 billion for the second quarter of 2022, primarily due to increases in investment securities and loans partially offset by a decrease in federal funds sold. Fees recognized from loans issued as part of the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) are included in interest income. These fees totaled $2,000 during the second quarter of 2022 compared to $336,000 during the same period of 2021. This offsets the increase of short term interest rates by the Federal Open Market Committee during 2022 to leave the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets virtually unchanged, decreasing from 2.87% for the second quarter of 2021 to 2.86% for the second quarter of 2022. Interest expense decreased $22,000 when comparing the periods due to a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities from 0.16% for the second quarter of 2021 to 0.13% for the second quarter of 2022. This was partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities from $730.5 million for the second quarter of 2021 to $816.6 million for the second quarter of 2022. As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread increased from 2.71% for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 to 2.73% for the same period in 2022.

Based on management’s analysis of the allowance for loan losses, $200,000 in provision for loan losses was recorded for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 primarily due to growth in the loan portfolio. There was no provision for loan losses recorded for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. The Bank recognized net charge-offs of $51,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $9,000 in net recoveries for the same period in 2021.

Noninterest income decreased $587,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021 primarily due to a decrease of $446,000 in gains on the sale of loans as increased interest rates slowed lending in residential mortgages. The second quarter of 2022 also included a $99,000 unrealized loss on equity securities compared to a $193,000 unrealized gain on equity securities during the same period in 2021. This was partially offset by a $119,000 increase in service charges on deposit accounts.

Noninterest expense increased $70,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021. This was primarily due to increases in data processing and occupancy and equipment expenses by $126,000 and $46,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods. This was partially offset by a $170,000 decrease in professional fees due to a profitability study initiated during 2021.

Income tax expense decreased $50,000 for the second quarter of 2022 as compared to the second quarter of 2021 primarily due to a decrease in taxable income for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. As a result, the effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was 14.1% compared to 15.4% for the same period in 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company reported net income of $5.2 million or $1.56 per diluted share compared to net income of $5.7 million or $1.69 per diluted share for the same period in 2021.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $435,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the same period in 2021. Interest income increased $678,000 when comparing the two periods, due to an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $988.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to $1.12 billion for the same period in 2022 partially offset by a decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 3.00% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to 2.77% for the same period in 2022.   PPP loan fees recognized in interest income totaled $27,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $962,000 during the same period in 2021. Interest expense decreased $57,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.16% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to 0.13% for the same period in 2022, while the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased from $707.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to $808.1 million for the same period in 2022. As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread decreased from 2.84% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to 2.64% for the six months ended June 30, 2022.

Based on management’s analysis of the allowance for loan losses, the provision for loan losses increased from $75,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to $375,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The Bank recognized net charge-offs of $64,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $63,000 for the same period in 2021.

Noninterest income decreased $878,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021 primarily due to a decrease of $747,000 in gains on the sale of loans. The six months ended June 30, 2022 also included a $36,000 unrealized loss on equity securities compared to a $427,000 unrealized gain on equity securities during the same period in 2021. This was partially offset by a $218,000 increase in service charges on deposit accounts.

Noninterest expenses increased $257,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021. This was primarily due to increases in data processing expenses, other expenses and occupancy and equipment expenses by $186,000, $127,000 and $49,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods. This was partially offset by a $119,000 decrease in professional fees.

Income tax expense decreased $268,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021 resulting in an effective tax rate of 13.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to 16.4% for the same period in 2021.

Total assets increased $18.5 million to $1.18 billion at June 30, 2022 from $1.16 billion at December 31, 2021. Net loans receivable and investment securities increased $44.0 million and $16.3 million, respectively, from December 31, 2021 to June 30, 2022 while federal funds sold decreased $53.1 million during the same period. Deposit growth funded the increase in assets as deposits grew $49.1 million from $1.04 billion at December 31, 2021 to $1.08 billion at June 30, 2022. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonaccrual loans, accruing loans 90 days or more past due, troubled debt restructurings on accrual status, and foreclosed real estate) decreased from $2.3 million at December 31, 2021 to $2.0 million at June 30, 2022.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED):  
           
This presentation contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Management uses these "non-GAAP" measures in its analysis of the Company’s performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow for better comparability with prior periods, as well as with peers in the industry who provide a similar presentation, and provide a further understanding of the Company’s ongoing operations. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. The following table summarizes the non-GAAP financial measures derived from amounts reported in the Company’s consolidated financial statements and reconciles those non-GAAP financial measures with the comparable GAAP financial measures.
