FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/17/14 -- Stonegate Bank (OTCBB: SGBK)

Fourth Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • $1.1 billion in total assets at December 31, 2013
  • Net income of $2,540,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013
  • Net income of $9,317,000 for fiscal year 2013

  • Closed Florida Shores acquisition on January 15, 2014 creating a $1.7 billion bank
  • Total loan growth of 11.0% in 2013

Stonegate Bank (OTCBB: SGBK) reported net income of $2,540,000, or 30.8 cents per share in the fourth quarter of 2013, as compared to net income of $2,164,000 or 26.2 cents per share in the fourth quarter of 2012. The Bank increased earnings year over year even though merger related expenses in 2013 were approximately $900,000. The Bank earned $9,317,000 in 2013 or $1.13 per share, as compared to $9,082,000 or $1.10 per share in 2012.

Income and Expenses:
Total interest income decreased from $12.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $11.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Total interest expense decreased from $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. This occurred even though total deposits increased $189 million during 2013. Further, the Bank's cost of funds decreased 30 basis points since December 2012. Net interest income decreased from $10.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $9.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Total non-interest income increased to $2,146,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $697,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012. Total non-interest income improved from $3,625,000 in 2012 to $4,532,000, or 25%, in 2013. The largest components of this improvement were increased service charges and overdraft fees, recovery on the sale of REO, and other loan related fees.

Non-interest expense increased to $6.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 from $5.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. But for merger related expenses in the fourth quarter of 2013, non-interest expenses would have remained unchanged.

Margin and Cost of Funds:
Total cost of funds declined from a 0.68% September 2013 month-to-date average to a 0.61% December 2013 month-to-date average. Stonegate Bank's net interest margin declined from a fourth quarter 2012 average of 4.76% to 3.74% fourth quarter 2013 average. The increase in cash of nearly $142 million and a decrease of $41 million in the investment portfolio largely accounted for the decrease in the net interest margin as well as timing differences on the realization of accretable discounts.

Balance Sheet and Capital:
Total assets grew organically from $944 million on December 31, 2012 to $1.119 billion on December 31, 2013, a $175 million increase. Total loans increased $80 million from $732 million on December 31, 2012 to $812 million on December 31, 2013. Total deposits increased $189 million from $746 million on December 31, 2012 to $935 million on December 31, 2013. Non-interest bearing deposits represented 19.4% of total deposits. Total capital grew from $126.7 million on December 31, 2012 to $131.4 million on December 31, 2013. The undiluted book value of common shares of Stonegate Bank was $15.95 per share on December 31, 2013.

Management Comments:

"First, I would like to welcome all the customers and investors of Florida Shores Southeast and Southwest to Stonegate Bank. The closing of the Florida Shores merger earlier this week creates some exciting opportunities for the combined bank as we move forward together in 2014," said Dave Seleski, President and Chief Executive Officer. "As for Stonegate, we ended the year with our strongest quarter. After a very slow start, including negative loan growth in the first quarter, we were able to achieve all of our goals in 2013 which included 11% loan growth, an improvement in percentage of non-interest bearing deposits to total deposits, higher earnings, and improved credit quality. Some of this is a reflection of the continued improvement in the Florida economy but most of the credit goes to the employees that really stepped up to the plate. Even more remarkable is that this was achieved with the distraction and the cost of the merger with Florida Shores which could have tempered our overall performance."

"The two biggest challenges and opportunities for Stonegate in 2014 are the data processing conversion of Florida Shores on April 25th and our pending NASDAQ listing. These are exciting times at Stonegate and I look forward to continuing to build our franchise in 2014," added Seleski.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations.

However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
