Press release:

Tompkins Financial Corporation reported diluted earnings per share of $1.14 for the third quarter of 2017, which represents an increase of 14.0% compared to the $1.00 reported in the third quarter of 2016. Net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $17.4 million, up 14.9% compared to the $15.1 million reported in the third quarter of 2016.

Year-to-date diluted earnings per share of $3.27 for the first nine months of 2017 represents an increase of 12.0% over the same period in 2016. Year-to-date net income was $50.0 million through the first nine months of 2017, an increase of 13.2% over the same period in 2016.

President and CEO, Stephen S. Romaine said “We are extremely pleased with our earnings performance as the reported results reflect the best third quarter and best year-to-date performance through the first nine months of any year in our Company’s history. A key growth driver for the quarter and year-to-date periods has been the improvement in net interest income, which has benefited from solid growth trends in loans and deposits.”

  • §  Best earnings performance for the first nine months of any year in our Company’s history. Also, the best third quarter earnings performance in our Company’s history.

  • §  Net interest income for the quarter was up 12.5% compared to the third quarter of 2016, and up year-to-date 11.2% compared to the same period in 2016.

  • §  Third quarter return on average equity was 11.77% compared to 10.81% for the same quarter last year.

    NET INTEREST INCOME

    Net interest income of $51.0 million for the third quarter of 2017 increased by $5.7 million, or 12.5% compared to the same period in 2016. For the year-to-date period, net interest income was $149.3 million, up $15.1 million, or 11.2% from the same nine-month period in 2016.

    Growth in net interest income for the third quarter of 2017 over the third quarter of 2016 was largely driven by $430.1 million of growth in average loans over the third quarter of 2016, an increase of 10.7%. Average deposits increased $249.1 million, or 5.5% compared to the same period in 2016. Included in the increase in average deposits was a $165.7 million or 14.4% increase in noninterest bearing deposits. For the third quarter of 2017, net interest margin measured 3.40%, compared to 3.45% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, and 3.31% in the third quarter of 2016.

    NONINTEREST INCOME

    Noninterest income represented 25.2% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2017, compared to 28.3% in the same period in 2016, and 25.8% for the most recent prior quarter. Noninterest income of $17.2 million was down $703,000, or 3.9% compared to the same period last year. The third quarter of 2017 included a loss on sales of available for sale securities of approximately $423,000 compared to a gain of $455,000 reported in the third quarter of 2016. Sales of available-for-sale securities are generally the result of general investment security portfolio maintenance and interest rate risk management.

    Year-to-date noninterest income of $51.9 million was in line with the previous year noninterest income of $52.5 million.

    NONINTEREST EXPENSE

    Noninterest expense was $41.9 million for the third quarter of 2017, up $1.6 million, or 3.9%, over the third quarter of 2016. For the year-to-date period, noninterest expense was $124.8 million, up $5.6 million, or 4.7%, from the same period in 2016. The increase in noninterest expense for both the third quarter and year-to-date periods was mainly due to higher salaries and benefits. Expenses for the quarter also included $345,000 of expense related to OREO properties held by the bank.

ASSET QUALITY

Asset quality trends remained strong in the third quarter of 2017. Nonperforming assets represented 0.37% of total assets at September 30, 2017, compared to 0.36% at December 31, 2016, and 0.32% at September 30, 2016. Though credit quality metrics showed some modest deterioration during the quarter, overall credit quality remains strong and compares favorably to our peers. Nonperforming asset levels as a percentage of total assets of 0.37% compares favorably to the most recent Federal Reserve Board Peer Group Average1 of 0.51%.

Provision for loan and lease losses was $402,000 for the third quarter of 2017, down $380,000 compared to the third quarter of 2016. Net recoveries for the third quarter of 2017 were $479,000 compared to net recoveries of $205,000 reported in the third quarter of 2016.

The Company’s allowance for originated loan and lease losses totaled $37.9 million at September 30, 2017, and represented 0.91% of total originated loans and leases at September 30, 2017, relatively unchanged from the most recent prior quarter and the third quarter of 2016. The total allowance represented 170.12% of total nonperforming loans and leases at September 30, 2017, compared to 164.98% at December 31, 2016, and 186.45% at September 30, 2016.

The level of Special Mention originated loans increased during the quarter to $50.4 million, up from $27.2 million a year ago, and up from $38.5 million at June 30, 2017. The increase is largely related to the Company’s agricultural portfolio that has been negatively impacted by lower average milk prices in 2016, which had an unfavorable impact on operations of our agricultural customers. Milk prices have rebounded in 2017. As of September 30, 2017, payments on all loans in our agricultural portfolio were current. Of the $50.4 million of loans currently listed as Special Mention, 94.3% of the dollar amount outstanding was current on their payments as of September 30, 2017.

CAPITAL POSITION

Capital ratios remain well above the regulatory well capitalized minimums. The ratio of Tier 1 capital to average assets was 8.50% at September 30, 2017, compared to 8.41% reported at December 31, 2016. Total capital to risk-weighted assets at September 30, 2017 was 12.52%, compared to 12.22% at December 31, 2016. Both ratios are down from the same period last year, in large part due to the redemption of $20.5 million of 7% fixed rate Trust Preferred securities in January 2017.

The program has helped organizations with much-needed funds, and has increased exposure within their communities. The first-round winner of the Community Minute Challenge was Going to the Dogs Rescue in Wyoming County, an organization dedicated to helping homeless pets find loving forever homes.

Press release:

As the proud sponsor the 11th annual Genesee County Mega Blood Drive, Tompkins Bank of Castile is calling on all eligible donors to give blood on Tuesday, Aug. 1 from noon to 7 p.m. at the Quality Inn & Suites in Batavia. It is located at 8200 Park Road.

“Tompkins Bank of Castile has been a proud sponsor and supporter of the annual blood drive in Batavia for years,” said Gregg McAllister, VP, Marketing Communications, Tompkins Bank Of Castile. “This year’s blood drive comes at a time when the Red Cross is facing a critical blood shortage, which makes donations more important than ever.

"This is an opportunity for everyone in our community who is able to do so, to make a blood donation so patients can continue to receive the lifesaving treatments they need.”

According to the Red Cross, the shortage of blood donations may lead to delays in urgent medical care to vulnerable patients. Blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in, and more donations are needed now to replenish the blood supply. According to the Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood, and approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day nationwide.

The blood drive will also honor the area’s everyday heroes with the second annual “Battle of the Badges” competition for first responders such as Mercy EMS, Batavia City Fire Department, Town of Batavia Fire Department, State Troopers, Batavia City Police and the Sheriff’s Office.

However, donors don’t need to be a first responder to participate in the blood drive on Aug. 1, and walk-ins are welcome. All those who donate can do so to honor our local first responders, and all participants will receive a Target e-gift card.

To make an appointment to donate to the blood drive, please call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org.

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS FOR SECOND QUARTER AND YEAR TO DATE:

  • ●  Diluted earnings per share of $1.11 for the second quarter represented a 13.3% increase over the same period last year, while year-to-date diluted earnings per share of $2.13 reflect the best earnings through the first six months of any year in our Company’s history.

    NET INTEREST INCOME

    Net interest income of $50.3 million for the second quarter of 2017 increased by $5.4 million, or 12.0% compared to the same period in 2016. For the year-to-date period, net interest income was $98.3 million, up $9.4 million, or 10.6% from the same six-month period in 2016.

    Net interest income benefited from growth in average loans and deposits. Average loans were up $467.1 million, or 12.2% in the first six months of 2017, versus the same period in 2016. Average deposits were up $260.3 million, or 5.8% in the first six months of 2017, versus the same period in 2016. Certain loans benefited from higher short term interest rates in 2017, resulting in an improved net interest margin in 2017. For the second quarter of 2017, net interest margin improved to 3.45%, compared to 3.38% in the first quarter of 2017, and 3.36% in the second quarter of 2016.

    NONINTEREST INCOME

    Noninterest income represented 25.8% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2017, compared to 27.6% in the same period in 2016, and 26.4% for the most recent prior quarter. Noninterest income of $17.5 million was up 2.1% compared to the same period last year. Declines in insurance commissions and fees, and gains on the sale of available-for-sale securities during the quarter were offset by improved card services income, which included approximately $500,000 of volume based incentives related to our branding agreement with MasterCard. Other income for the second quarter was up $379,000 from the same quarter in 2016. The improvement included approximately $130,000 of recoveries of nonaccrued interest on loans previously charged off.

    NONINTEREST EXPENSE

    Noninterest expense was $41.6 million for the second quarter of 2017, up $2.2 million, or 5.5%, over the second quarter of 2016. For the year-to-date period, noninterest expense was $82.9 million, up $4.0 million, or 5.1%, from the same period in

2016. The increase in noninterest expense for both the second quarter and year-to-date periods was mainly due to higher salaries and benefits. Expenses for the quarter also included $411,000 of expense related to our recently completed core system conversion, compared to $262,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2017, and $76,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

ASSET QUALITY

Asset quality trends remained strong in the second quarter of 2017. Nonperforming assets represented 0.36% of total assets at June 30, 2017, unchanged from December 31, 2016, and up slightly from 0.32% at June 30, 2016. Nonperforming

asset levels continue to be well below the most recent Federal Reserve Board Peer Group Average1 of 0.55%.

Provision for loan and lease losses was $976,000 for the second quarter of 2017, which was in line with the second quarter of 2016. Net recoveries for the second quarter of 2017 were $15,000 compared to net charge-offs of $383,000 reported in the second quarter of 2016.

The Company’s allowance for originated loan and lease losses totaled $37.0 million at June 30, 2017, and represented 0.91% of total originated loans and leases at June 30, 2017, compared to 0.92% reported for the most recent prior quarter, and 0.93% from one year ago. The total allowance represented 178.58% of total nonperforming loans and leases at June 30, 2017, compared to 164.98% at December 31, 2016, and 183.01% at June 30, 2016.

Though most credit quality metrics remained relatively stable for the quarter, the level of special mention loans increased during the quarter to $39.0 million, up from $21.2 million a year ago, and up from $19.4 million at March 31, 2017. The increase is largely related to the Company’s agricultural portfolio that has been negatively impacted by lower milk prices over the past 12 months. Though lower prices have negatively impacted cash flow for this group of borrowers, payments on all of the loans in this portfolio were current as of June 30, 2017.

CAPITAL POSITION

Capital ratios remain well above the regulatory well capitalized minimums. The ratio of Tier 1 capital to average assets was 8.43% at June 30, 2017, compared to 8.41% reported for December 31, 2016. Total capital to risk-weighted assets at June 30, 2017 was 12.45%, compared to 12.22% reported at December 31, 2016. Both ratios are down from the same period last year, in large part due to the redemption of $20.5 million of 7% fixed rate Trust Preferred securities in January 2017.
