YORK, Pa., July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Codorus Valley Bancorp, Inc. (Codorus Valley, or the Corporation) (NASDAQ:CVLY), parent company of PeoplesBank, a Codorus Valley Company (PeoplesBank), today announced net income available to common shareholders (earnings) of $6.1 million or $0.68 per share basic and $0.67 per share diluted, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, as compared to earnings of $3.7 million or $0.41 per share basic and diluted, for the second quarter of 2017. For the first six months of 2018, earnings were $10.1 million or $1.14 per share basic and $1.12 per share diluted, compared to $7.1 million or $0.80 per share basic and $0.79 per share diluted, for the first six months of 2017.
“Codorus Valley realized a 64 percent increase in the second quarter net income due in part to implementing both short and long-term growth strategies, and also from benefits of the new corporate tax rate,” stated Larry J. Miller, Chairman, President and CEO. “A major internal focus in the second quarter has been preparing for the launch of our new personal online and mobile banking platform, one of several growth strategies we are currently employing. Final configurations and testing of the new personal online banking platform are currently in process. We expect to fully roll-out this enhanced digital platform to retail clients later this quarter. We are committed to providing our clients an exceptional digital experience that meets their financial needs, while gaining efficiencies.”
The Corporation’s net interest income for the second quarter of 2018 was $16.1 million, an increase of $1.5 million or 10 percent when compared to the net interest income of $14.6 million for the second quarter of 2017. The growth was driven by an increased volume of interest earning assets, primarily commercial loans. For the first six months of 2018, net interest income was $31.4 million, reflecting an increase of $2.7 million or 9.4 percent compared to $28.7 million for the first six months of 2017. The Corporation’s net interest margin was 3.89 percent for the first half of 2018, an increase from the net interest margin of 3.78 percent for the same period in 2017.
The provision for loan losses for the second quarter of 2018 was $300,000 compared to $825,000 for the same period in 2017. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, the provision for loan losses was $500,000 compared to $1.5 million for the first six months of 2017. The Corporation’s nonperforming assets ratio was 0.40 percent as of June 30, 2018, a decrease from 0.54 percent as of June 30, 2017. In addition to the decrease in nonperforming assets, the decrease in the provision for loan losses is also attributed to lower net charge-offs during the period and minimal changes in the loan portfolio’s risk ratings.
Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2018, excluding gains on sales of investment securities, was $3.5 million, an increase of 25 percent compared to noninterest income of $2.8 million for the second quarter 2017. For the first six months of 2018, noninterest income, excluding gains on sales of investment securities, was $6.8 million an increase of 24 percent compared to $5.5 million for the first six months of 2017. The increase in noninterest income, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, was attributed primarily to increases in service charges on deposit accounts, other income, and gains on sales of loans. For both the second quarter 2018 and the first six months of 2018, the gain on sales of investment securities decreased from $63,000 to $0, as compared to the same periods in 2017.
Noninterest expense was $11.6 million for the second quarter of 2018, an increase of $456 thousand as compared to noninterest expense of $11.2 million for the second quarter of 2017. For the first six months of 2018, noninterest expenses totaled $24.9 million, an increase of 12 percent compared to $22.2 million for the first six months of 2017. Higher personnel expenses, charitable donations and external data processing costs accounted for the majority of the increase. The aforementioned higher costs were partially offset by a decline in FDIC insurance premiums and other expenses.
Income tax expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 was $1.6 million versus $1.8 million for the same period in 2017. Income tax expense for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $2.7 million versus $3.4 million for the same period in 2017. The effective tax rates for the periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 were 20.8 percent and 32.4 percent, respectively. Income tax expense and the effective tax rate decreased as a result of the new corporate tax rate enacted as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that became effective January 1, 2018.
As recently announced, on July 10, 2018, the Board of Directors of the Corporation declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.155 per share, payable on August 14, 2018 to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 24, 2018.
Upon receiving regulatory approval, a new full-service Financial Center is scheduled to open late summer 2018 at 2343 Oregon Pike in Lancaster, PA. This will be PeoplesBank’s first full-service location in the Lancaster County market. “While we have been serving the Lancaster market for several years through a Loan Production Office and five Retirement Community Offices, we are excited to open our first full-service Financial Center in Manheim Township to more fully serve residents and businesses in the Lancaster community,” commented Larry Miller.
Further investments are being made in the Maryland market with a relocation of the Corporation’s growing Bel Air, Maryland Loan Production Office now located at 139 North Main Street in Bel Air, MD. This relocation occurred in July 2018. A relocation of the Bel Air, Maryland Financial Center is scheduled for early fall 2018. The Financial Center will be moving to a newly renovated office located at 140 North Main Street in Bel Air, MD.
