FPB Financial Corp. Announces 2014 First Quarter Results and Declares Dividends

HAMMOND, LA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- FPB Financial Corp. (OTCQB: FPBF), the holding company for Florida Parishes Bank, announced financial results for the 2014 first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Earnings

Net income for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $466,000, a decrease of 13.7% from $539,000 in the first quarter of 2013. Net income in the 2013 fourth quarter totaled $468,000. 2014 Net income per fully diluted common share was $0.39, down from $0.51 per fully diluted common share in the first quarter of 2013. The 2013 results have been adjusted for a 3 for 1 stock split of our common shares completed on September 27, 2013. Earnings per share decreased 23.5% primarily due to a 15.5% increase in total non-interest expense and due to our completion of the sale of 129,075 shares of our common stock on October 11, 2013 in a private placement. Return on common stockholders' equity (ROE) was 9.0% on an annualized basis for the 2014 first quarter period.

Total non-interest expense increased by $294,000 in 2014 when compared to the 2013 period, primarily due to a $171,000 increase in compensation and employee benefits, primarily related to the hiring of new officers and staff for our recently opened branch office located in Covington, LA.

Although mortgage banking revenue declined by 52.9% to $88,000 in the first quarter, total non-interest income increased in the period primarily due to a net gain of $43,000 on sale of foreclosed assets and investments. Gain on bank owned life insurance totaled $36,000 in the period compared to $-0- in 2013.

Net interest income was unchanged at $2.2 million in the 2014 first quarter when compared to the first quarter of 2013 and down $20,000 from the 2013 fourth quarter.

First quarter earnings were positively affected by a $126,000 decrease in provision for loan losses when compared to the 2013 period.

The Company's effective income tax rate in the 2014 first quarter decreased to 29.2% compared to 33.6% in the 2013 period, primarily due to increased investment in municipal securities and due to the purchase of Bank Owned Life Insurance (BOLI).

Asset Quality

Total non-performing assets at March 31, 2014 decreased $1.0 million, or 35.0% to $1.9 million when compared to March 31, 2013. Total non-performing assets on December 31, 2013 were $1.8 million. The Company's allowance for loan losses decreased to $2.9 million when compared to $3.3 million at March 31, 2013. Total allowance for loan losses were $3.0 million at December 31, 2013. The March 31, 2014 allowance for loan losses represents 150.0% of non-performing assets and 2.4% of average period net loans.

Net loan charge-offs for the first quarter totaled $152,000 or 0.52% (on an annualized basis) of net loans up from $28,000 or 0.10% of net loans in the 2013 first quarter. In the 2013 fourth quarter the company's net loan charge-offs were $207,000 or 0.72% of net loans.

Performing Troubled Debt Restructured (TDRs) as of March 31 totaled $2.8 million, or a decrease of $260,000 from March 31, 2013. Performing TDRs increased by $222,000 when compared to December 31, 2013.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Total assets at March 31, 2014 increased to $208.8 million, or 5.5% as compared to $197.9 million on March 31, 2013. Total assets on December 31, 2013 were $205.9 million. The increase in total assets was primarily attributed to an increase of $10.0 million in available-for-sale investment securities, an increase of $4.2 million in net loans and the purchase of $4.0 million of Bank Owned Life Insurance (BOLI) in the 2013 third quarter. These increases were offset by a $5.3 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents, a decrease of $4.2 million in certificates of deposit and a $594,000 decrease in foreclosed assets. Total liabilities increased by 4.4% to $187.7 million primarily due to an increase of $5.4 million in total deposits to $167.4 million from $162.0 million at March 31, 2013 and an increase of 17.6% or $2.4 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances to $16.2 million at March 31, 2014. Non interest bearing deposits and total non-maturity deposits both increased in the twelve month period ending March 31, 2014.

Common Stockholders' equity increased by a net of $3.0 million, or 16.7% to $21.1 million for the twelve month period ending March 31, 2014, primarily due to the October 11, 2013 sale of 129,075 shares of our common stock at a price of $16.00 per share in a private placement for the total net sale proceeds of $2.0 million. Retained earnings increased by $1.6 million in the twelve month period. Other comprehensive income decreased by $651,000 at March 31, 2014 when compared to March 31, 2013.

Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters. For me, I hear Andrew saying, “we’re jumping to step 5 before we’ve successfully completed steps 1-4.”
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
@DevOpsSummit has been named the ‘Top DevOps Influencer' by iTrend. iTred processes millions of conversations, tweets, interactions, news articles, press releases, blog posts - and extract meaning form them and analyzes mobile and desktop software platforms used to communicate, various metadata (such as geo location), and automation tools.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Did you know that you can develop for mainframes in Java? Or that the testing and deployment can be automated across mobile to mainframe? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Vaughn Marshall, Sr. Principal Product Owner at CA Technologies, will discuss and demo how increasingly teams are developing with agile methodologies using modern development environments and automating testing and deployments, mobile to mainframe.
As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deli...
