Earnings

Net income for the second quarter of 2019 was $27.3 million, as compared to $24.6 million in the previous quarter and $32.1 million for the second quarter of 2018. The increase from the previous quarter was primarily driven by strong fee income growth and a stable net interest margin. The decrease from the prior year was primarily due to a $5.3 million (pre-tax) gain from successful auction calls of the Company's remaining pooled trust preferred securities in the year ago quarter.

Net income for the first six months of 2019 was $51.9 million, as compared to $55.4 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease from the prior year was primarily due to an $8.1 million (pre-tax) gain on the sale and successful auction calls of the Company's remaining pooled trust preferred securities in the first six months of 2018.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

During the second quarter of 2019, net interest income (FTE) was $67.6 million, an increase of $1.6 million from the previous quarter. The increase in net interest income was the result of a $100 million increase in average interest-earning assets and a $32 million, or 8.9% (annualized), increase in average noninterest bearing deposits.

The net interest margin for the second quarter of 2019 was unchanged from the previous quarter at 3.75% and decreased three basis points compared to the second quarter of 2018. In the second quarter of 2019, strong core deposit growth, together with a favorable shift in the mix of earning assets (as strong loan growth more than offset a decrease of approximately $37.4 million in securities), combined to offset higher interest bearing deposit costs.

The decrease in the net interest margin from the prior year was due to the recognition of $1.5 million in deferred interest from the sale of one commercial loan and the successful auction call of the company's remaining trust preferred security portfolio during the second quarter of 2018, which contributed approximately nine basis points to the net interest margin.

Total average deposits grew by $137 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to the previous quarter. Growth was driven by a $100 million increase in average interest-bearing demand and savings deposits and a $32 million increase in average noninterest-bearing deposits.

Credit Quality

The provision for credit losses totaled $2.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of $1.3 million compared to the prior quarter. The decrease is primarily due to a continuation of the long-term trend of improvements in credit quality.

Nonperforming loans were $35.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $4.3 million from previous quarter and a decrease of $10.3 million from the same quarter last year. Nonperforming loans as a percentage of total loans were 0.59%, 0.53% and 0.81% for the periods ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively.

During the second quarter of 2019, net charge-offs (recoveries) were $1.4 million, compared to $2.2 million in the prior quarter and $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2018. Net charge-offs in the second quarter of 2018 included a $2.2 million charge-off of one commercial real estate credit.

For the originated loan portfolio at June 30, 2019, the general allowance for credit losses to total originated non-impaired loans was 0.88%, compared to 0.89% at March 31, 2019 and 0.88% at June 30, 2018.

Noninterest Income and Noninterest Expense

Noninterest income (excluding net security gains) totaled $21.9 million for the second quarter of 2019, as compared to $18.9 million in the previous quarter and $21.0 million for the second quarter of 2018. The increase from the previous quarter was primarily due to a $0.7 million increase in card-related interchange income, a $0.6 million increase in mortgage banking revenue, a $0.4 million gain on the sale of a commercial loan and a $0.3 million increase in gain on sale of SBA loans.

Non-interest income during the second quarter of 2018 included net securities gains of $5.3 million as a result of the successful auction call and open market sale of the company's remaining pooled trust preferred securities during the second quarter of 2018.

Noninterest expense (excluding merger-related expenses) totaled $52.2 million for the second quarter of 2019 as compared to $49.7 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $47.9 million for the second quarter of 2018. The increase from the previous quarter was primarily driven by a $1.0 million increase in unfunded commitment reserves due to higher construction loan originations, $0.9 million in write-downs of two OREO properties, and a $0.2 million write-down of a former bank facility. In addition, Pennsylvania shares tax increased $0.3 million in comparison to the previous quarter due to educational improvement tax credits recognized in the first quarter of 2019.

Full time equivalent staff was 1,438 at June 30, 2019 and 1,417 at March 31, 2019 and was 1,438 at June 30, 2018.
