TIMBERVILLE, VA / ACCESSWIRE / July 27, 2021 / F & M Bank Corp. (OTCQX:FMBM), parent company of Farmers & Merchants Bank today reported net income available to common shareholders of $3.2 million and diluted earnings per common share of $0.93 for the quarter ending June 30, 2021.

These earnings are driven by growth in net interest income despite margin compression, growth in non-interest income due to our subsidiary organizations and improved asset quality and economic conditions.

Net interest income reflects year over year growth. As yields on earning assets continue to decline the Company has been able to support net interest income with savings in interest expense and growth in the investment portfolio.

Noninterest income remained strong in the second quarter at $6.4 million year to date this reflects an increase over June 30, 2020 which totaled $5.7million in the heart of the mortgage refinance boom. Growth is primarily driven by continued high volumes of mortgage originations, growth in our wealth management division, and title division.

Continued improvements in asset quality and economic conditions resulted in the ability to reduce the allowance for loan losses to 1.31% of loans held for investment (1.35% excluding PPP loans) which was accretive to income $1.975 million year to date or $1.250 million in the 2 nd quarter.

Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") & CARES Act

During 2021, the Company processed 363 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans that totaled $23.8 million; PPP loans processed during 2020 and 2021 YTD totaled 1,080 loans for $87.1 million. In addition to an insignificant amount of PPP loan payoffs, the Company has processed a total of $64.4 million of forgiveness on 809 loans program to date resulting in a remaining balance of PPP loans of $22.7 million. As of June 30, 2021, one loan remains in a COVID related loan payment deferral status.

Selected financial highlights include:

  • Net income of $3.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and $7.02 million year to date.
  • Net interest margin of 3.27%.
  • Total deposits increased $92.6 million and $188.7 million, respectively for the quarter and for the trailing 12 months as the bank continues to grow our composition of DDA accounts and decrease balances of Time Deposits.
  • Total loans increased $16.0 million and $36.7 million, respectively for the quarter and for the trailing 12 months (excluding PPP loans).
  • Nonperforming assets decreased to 0.50% of total assets at the end of the quarter from 0.68% on 12/31/20 and 0.57% on 6/30/20.
  • Negative Provision for Loan Losses of $1,250,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, and $1,975,000 year to date.
  • Allowance for loan losses totaled 1.31% of loans held for investment (1.35% excluding PPP loans).

Mark Hanna, President, commented " We are pleased with June 30, 2021 year to date earnings of $7.02 million. Our mortgage, title, and wealth management divisions continue to drive strong noninterest income. Loans continue to grow at a modest pace driven by Agriculture, C&I, CRE, and Dealer through a generally tepid lending environment. Our net interest margin of 3.27% reflects a historical decline but remains strong especially given the changes in our balance sheet and the current rate environment. F&M continues to gain relationships in our legacy and new markets adding to an already highly liquid balance sheet as the bank implements strategic solutions to leverage these assets."

On July 23, 2021, our Board of Directors declared a second quarter dividend of $.26 per share to common shareholders. Based on our most recent trade price of $29.00 per share this constitutes a 3.59% yield on an annualized basis. The dividend will be paid on August 30, 2021, to shareholders of record as of August 14, 2021."

  1. The net interest margin is calculated by dividing tax equivalent net interest income by total average earning assets. Tax equivalent interest income is calculated by grossing up interest income for the amounts that are nontaxable (i.e. municipal securities and loan income) then subtracting interest expense. The tax rate utilized is 21%. The Company's net interest margin is a common measure used by the financial service industry to determine how profitable earning assets are funded. Because the Company earns nontaxable interest income from municipal loans and securities, net interest income for the ratio is calculated on a tax equivalent basis as described above.
  2. The efficiency ratio is not a measurement under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The efficiency ratio is a common measure used by the financial service industry to determine operating efficiency. It is calculated by dividing non-interest expense by the sum of tax equivalent net interest income and non-interest income excluding gains and losses on the investments portfolio and Other Real Estate Owned. The Company calculates this ratio in order to evaluate how efficiently it utilizes its operating structure to create income. An increase in the ratio from period to period indicates the Company is losing a greater percentage of its income to expenses.
