JENNINGS, LA / ACCESSWIRE / October 22, 2020 / JD Bancshares, Inc. (the 'Company'), (OTCQX:JDVB), the parent holding company of JD Bank (the 'Bank'), reports its unaudited financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020.

Net income is $1,693,921 or $1.09 per common share for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1,648,996 or $1.06 per share for the linked quarter ended June 30, 2020 and $2,373,939 or $1.52 per share for the prior year quarter ended September 30, 2019. Larger than anticipated loan loss provisions have been recorded for the 2020 quarters due to the uncertainty surrounding the economic impact on both our commercial and consumer loan customers resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. For comparative purposes, pre-tax, pre-provision operating income provides greater insight into the financial performance of the Company. Pre-tax, pre-provision operating income for the current quarter is $2,637,056 compared to $2,847,642 for the linked quarter and $2,963,064 for the comparative prior year quarter. Pre-tax, pre-provision operating income excludes taxes, provision for loan losses, losses on the sale of other real estate owned and gains on the sale of investment securities. The current quarter decline is due to a decrease in the amount of Small Business Administration (SBA) Paychecks Protection Program (PPP) origination fees recognized and lower yields on earning assets.

For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, net income was $4,900,629 or $3.14 per share compared to $6,857,838 or $4.40 per share for the prior year comparative period. Pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings for the two comparative nine-month periods was $7,986,946 and $8,417,508, respectively.

Bruce W. Elder, President & CEO commented, 'The Company continues to build its allowance for loan losses due to the uncertainties associated with not only the pandemic, but also the impactful hurricane season experienced in southwest Louisiana. Customer reaction and monetary responses to this pandemic have had an adverse effect on current year non-interest income associated with deposit accounts and caused a substantial decline in the yield on average earning assets. We have been able to reduce our non-interest expenses such that pre-tax, pre-provision operating income for the comparative nine-month periods remain relatively stable. This has allowed us to continue to reward shareholders with a quarterly dividend of $0.59 per share.' Elder continued 'Our Calcasieu and Jeff Davis Parish branches were impacted by two major hurricanes hitting southwest Louisiana occurring six weeks apart. Both storms caused widespread power outages in the affected areas; however, our business continuity preparedness allowed us to open offices and serve the needs of our customers and communities at 13 of our 14 offices located in those parishes within days of the events.'

COVID-19 Activities and Impact

Over the course of the second quarter of 2020, the Company made approximately 750 loans totaling $73.6 million. These loans are for terms ranging from two to five years and carry an interest rate of 1%. The Company received approximately $2.4 million in net fees from the SBA, of which $254,000 were recognized as interest income during the current quarter compared to $633,000 in the linked quarter. The remaining $1.5 million in fees will be recognized over the remaining life of the loans.

As was mentioned at the end of the second quarter, we assisted existing loan customers who experienced challenges as a result of the pandemic by extending 90 day payment deferrals to approximately 1,200 customers with loans totaling $208.6 million. The vast majority of those customers have returned to a normal payment cycle and while there has been a slight increase in past due loans, those borrowers who have returned to making payments appear able and willing. As of September 30, 2020, we approved a second 90 day deferral for less than 100 customers with loans totaling approximately $25.6 million. Loans on a COVID related deferral at June 30 accounted for approximately 31.14% of our total loan portfolio compared to approximately 3.87% at September 30, 2020.

Asset Quality

With the expiration of the first round of COVID related payment deferrals, the Company experienced a slight uptick in asset quality issues. As previously disclosed, past due loans of 89 days or less constituted 0.16% of the total portfolio at June 30, 2020. At September 30, total past due loans have increased to $1.8 million or 0.28% of the total loan portfolio. Despite the linked quarter-to-quarter increase, past due loans are still below the $3.3 million or 0.52% of total loans reported at December 31, 2019.

Total nonperforming assets, including loans on non-accrual status, other real estate owned (OREO) and repossessed assets are $10.1 million at September 30, 2020, up from $8.7 million at December 31, 2019. Loans on non-accrual status increased to $9.6 million from $7.7 million at December 31, 2019. While loans migrate to and from non-accrual status during the past nine-months, one loan in the amount of $1.4 million moving to non-accrual in June accounts for the majority of the increase. OREO decreased by $564,000 to $392,000 at September 30, 2020 from $956,000 at the year-end December 31, 2019, reflecting foreclosure activity net of sales and write-downs of certain real estate properties. Management performs a quarterly evaluation of OREO properties and believes their adjusted carrying values are representative of their fair market values, although there is no assurance that the ultimate sales will be equal or greater than the carrying values.

The Bank recorded $958,000 in provisions for credit losses in current quarter compared to $897,000 for the linked quarter and $90,000 for the prior year quarter ended September 30, 2019. The allowance for loan losses (ALLL) was $9.1 million at September 30, 2020 or 1.37% of total loans compared to $6.6 million at December 31, 2019 or 1.06% of total loans. Net charge offs are $78,000 for 2020 year-to-date compared to $297,000 for the prior year comparative period. Since March, the degree of uncertainty regarding the impact of the pandemic on asset quality has caused us to continually reassess our allowance for loan loss calculation. We believe that as of September 30, 2020, we have fine-tuned our methodology to account for that uncertainty to the best of our ability, given the information available. While we believe the current level of our ALLL is adequate, there is no assurance that regulators, increased risks in the loan portfolio, or changes in economic conditions will not require additional adjustments to the ALLL.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the current quarter is $8.3 million, a decrease of $421,000 compared to the $8.7 million for the linked quarter, and is $525,000 lower than the $8.8 million reported for the prior year quarter ended September 30, 2019. The net interest margin for the current quarter was 3.61% and declined 44 basis points from 4.05% for the linked quarter and 96 basis points compared to 4.57% for the prior year period. The yield on earning assets for the current quarter was 4.11% compared to 4.60% and 5.16% for the two comparative periods, respectively. The cost of funds has declined slightly from 0.50% for current period compared to 0.54% for Q2 2020 and 0.60% from the prior year quarter.

Net margin has been significantly impacted by the sharp reduction in interest rates, the high volume of low priced PPP loans and a surge in deposit levels causing high levels of liquidity. As previously discussed, the Company originated approximately $73.6 million in PPP loans priced at 1%. The origination of these loans was important for the well-being of small businesses in our communities, but had an adverse impact on net interest margin. The yield on loans is 4.93% for the current quarter, down 68 basis points from 5.61% for Q3 2019. The pandemic has resulted in a significant increase in deposits as businesses and individuals are holding large quantities of cash. Non-PPP loan demand has been soft and the excess cash has been deployed into short-term investments yielding lower rates of interest. The weighted average yield of interest-bearing deposits with banks and investment securities for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 is 2.11% compared with 3.47% for the comparative period in 2019.

For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, net interest income is $25.6 million, down $705,000 from $26.3 million for the comparative period ended September 30, 2019. Net interest margin declined during the current nine-month period to 4.20% from 4.49% for the prior year comparative period.

Non-Interest Income

Total non-interest income is $2.8 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 compared to $2.3 million for the linked quarter and $2.5 million for the prior year quarter. Service charges and fees associated with deposit accounts rebounded slightly from the June quarter to $1.7 million from $1.6 million, but remained below the level from the prior year quarter of $1.8 million. NSF fees tend to reflect depositors spending habits given their opinions about economic conditions. After declining significantly in the June 30, 2020 quarter, NSF fees increased by $144,000 to $585,000 for the current quarter, but remain $139,000 below the $724,000 reported for the prior year period. Interchange fees on debit card transactions are $882,000 for the current quarter, $893,000 for the linked quarter and $825,000 for the prior year quarter.

Despite the disruption in mortgage loans closings and sales resulting from the August 27 landfall of Hurricane Laura in southwest Louisiana, gains from the sale of mortgage loans in the current period are $280,000, slightly better than the $266,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and $148,000 more than the $132,000 reported for the prior year quarter. Mortgage rates remain at very attractive levels and both refinance and purchase money activity is robust. Other non-interest income was $842,000 for the current quarter compared to $484,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and $535,000 for the prior year quarter. The current quarter included a $252,000 gain on the sale of securities.

Non-interest income for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020 was $7.5 million, a decline of $52,000 from the $7.6 million reported for the comparative 2019 period. Both periods included non-recurring gains on the sale of investment securities of $252,000 for the current period and $389,000 for the prior year period. An increase in gains on the sale of originated mortgages of $231,000, more than offset lower service charge revenue.

Non-Interest Expense

Total non-interest expense is $8.3 million for both the current and linked quarter and compares to $8.4 million for the September 2019 quarter. Salary and benefits expense is the largest component of non-interest expenses and is stable at $4.5 million for all three comparative periods. Personnel expenses for the current quarter reflect the additional expenses of staffing our newest office at 631 E. Admiral Doyle Drive in New Iberia, LA.

Occupancy expense has remained relatively stable at $1.3 million for the current and linked quarters compared with $1.4 million for the prior year quarter. Data processing expense is $899,000 for the current quarter, $918,000 for the linked quarter and $761,000 from a year ago. The increase from the September 2019 quarter relates primarily to the outsourcing of our ATM fleet to a third party and an increase in account volume. Marketing, business development and public relations expenses total $275,000 in the current quarter compared to $349,000 for the June 2020 quarter and $409,000 for the prior year quarter. The pandemic has limited the normal level of activity in these categories. Other non-interest expenses were $1.2 million for both the current and linked quarter and $1.3 million for the prior year quarter. Included in total other non-interest expenses are losses on the sale of OREO of $3,000, $41,000 and $73,000 for the three comparative periods, respectively.

Non-interest expenses for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020 are $24.9 million, reflecting a $342,000 decrease compared to $25.3 million for the prior year. Decreases in salary and benefits, occupancy, marketing and business development, amortization of core deposit intangibles, professional fees and travel were partially offset by increases in data processing and audit fees. Losses on the sale of OREO for the current and prior nine-month periods are $69,000 and $220,000, respectively.

Income tax expense is $234,000 for the current quarter compared to $261,000 for the June 30, 2020 quarter and $426,000 for the September 30, 2019 quarter. The decline was primarily due to a reduction in the effective tax rate to 12.13% compared to 13.66% for the linked quarter and 15.22% for the prior year quarter. The downward shift in the effective tax rate from 2019 to 2020 is due to the restructure of the investment portfolio in the second quarter of 2019 to a higher concentration of tax-exempt securities. Current year-to-date income tax expense was $731,000 with an effective rate of 12.98% compared to $1,368,000 and 16.63% for the prior year nine-month period.

Balance Sheet

Total assets are $1.1 billion at September 30, 2020, reflecting a $195.8 million or 22% increase over the $885.0 million at December 31, 2019. Categories experiencing the largest increases include cash and interest-bearing deposits with banks up $103.3 million, investment securities are up $48.4 million and loans held for investment increased by $41.6 million. As previously mentioned, the Company has originated $73.6 million of PPP loans and the demand for non-PPP loans has been impacted by the economic conditions resulting from the pandemic. Southwest Louisiana experienced two hurricanes over a six week period resulting in significant property damages for both businesses and individuals. As recovery efforts progress, we believe the need for financing will begin to increase and provide opportunities for loan growth.

Total deposits are $960.2 million at September 30, 2020, reflecting a $188.1 million or 24% increase over the $772.1 million reported at year end 2019. Non-interest bearing demand deposits increased by $101.0 million or 38% since December 31, 2019. Balances in savings, interest-bearing demand, money market and time deposits have increased by $41.1 million, $23.3 million, $17.1 million, and $5.5 million, respectively. Both consumers and businesses are holding higher than normal amounts of cash in the face of COVID-19 pandemic.

Other liabilities increased by approximately $1.9 million since year-end 2019. The primary drivers of the increase are our deferred tax liability and the accrual for ad valorem taxes.

Stockholders' equity increased by $5.8 million to $94.7 million at September 30, 2020 from $88.9 million at December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily comprised of year-to-date net earnings of $4.9 million, plus the increase in other comprehensive income of $3.6 million, less the dividends paid to common shareholders of $2.8 million. The tangible equity to assets ratio decreased to 7.95% at September 30, 2020 from 9.46% at December 31, 2019 due to our significant asset growth. There were 1,560,000 common shares outstanding at both September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019. Tangible book value per common share increased to $58.02 at September 30, 2020 compared to $54.28 at December 31, 2019.

Key Performance Ratios

Return on average assets (ROA) declined slightly in the current quarter compared with linked and prior year periods. ROA is 0.65% for the current three-month period compared to 0.66% for the linked quarter and 1.09% for prior year quarter. Return on average equity (ROE) is 7.33%, 7.09% and 11.42% for the three comparative quarters ended September 2020, June 2020 and September 2019, respectively. ROA and ROE for both 2020 periods were significantly impacted by the large loan loss provisions recorded due to uncertainty related to the pandemic. ROA and ROE for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 were 0.70% and 1.05%, and 7.14% and 11.18%, respectively.
