“For the third quarter and through the first nine months of the year, we have achieved record net income and earnings per share,” said NBT President and CEO John H. Watt. Jr. “These results reflect the continuing efforts of our team to drive organic growth in loans and deposits and to grow our fee-based businesses while making important and ongoing technology investments that enable NBT to continually enhance the customer experience and create long-term shareholder value. Our ability to successfully manage deposit costs in a rising rate environment and to maintain strong asset quality is fundamental to our business. We are also pleased to announce a 4% increase to the quarterly dividend to $0.26 per share. Combined with the dividend increase we announced earlier this year, this represents a 13% increase in our quarterly dividend in 2018.”

Net interest income was $77.5 million for the third quarter of 2018, up $1.8 million, or 2.4%, from the previous quarter. The fully taxable equivalent (“FTE”) net interest margin was 3.57% for the three months ended September 30, 2018, comparable to the previous quarter, as higher rates on average earning assets were offset by higher funding costs. Interest income increased $3.4 million, or 4.1%, as the yield on average earning assets increased 6 basis points (“bps”) from the prior quarter to 4.05%, combined with an increase in average interest earning assets of $109.9 million, or 1.3%, driven by the increase in average loans of $88.9 million. Interest expense was up $1.7 million, or 18.3%, as the cost of interest bearing liabilities increased 10 bps to 0.71% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, driven by increased short-term borrowings costs, with interest-bearing deposit costs increasing 8 bps.

Net interest income was $77.5 million for the third quarter of 2018, up $5.6 million, or 7.8%, from the third quarter of 2017. The FTE net interest margin of 3.57% was up 10 bps from the third quarter of 2017. Interest income increased $9.4 million, or 11.9%, as the yield on average earning assets increased 25 bps from the same period in 2017, and average interest earning assets increased $341.9 million, or 4.1%, primarily due to the $439.3 million increase in average loans that was partially offset by a $91.9 million decrease in securities. Interest expense increased $3.8 million, or 54.4%, as the cost of interest bearing liabilities increased 24 bps, driven by the increase in short-term borrowing costs, combined with interest-bearing deposit costs increasing 18 bps.

Net interest income for the first nine months of 2018 was $226.8 million, up $16.7 million, or 8.0%, from the same period in 2017. The FTE net interest margin of 3.57% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was up from 3.46% for the same period in 2017 primarily due to asset yields increasing 22 bps, more than offsetting the 17 bp rise in in the cost of interest bearing liabilities. Average interest earning assets were up $314.0 million, or 3.8%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the same period in 2017, driven by a $426.0 million increase in loans that was partially offset by a $105.2 million decrease in securities. Interest income increased $24.6 million, or 10.7%, due to the increase in earning assets combined with a 21 bp improvement in loan yields. Interest expense was up $7.8 million, or 41.0%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to the same period in 2017 and resulted primarily from a 17 bp increase in rates driven by higher borrowing costs and an 11 bp increase in the cost of deposits, combined with an increase in average interest bearing liabilities of $169.8 million. The Federal Reserve has raised its target fed funds rate eight times from December 2015 through September 2018 for a total of 200 bps. During this same cycle of increasing rates, the Company’s deposit rates have increased by 11 bps, resulting in a full cycle deposit beta of 5.7%. The favorable deposit beta was influenced by a favorable loan to deposit ratio and deposit mix.

Noninterest income for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $33.4 million, down $0.8 million, or 2.3%, from the prior quarter and up $2.6 million, or 8.5%, from the third quarter of 2017. The decrease from the prior quarter was driven by lower trust income due to higher seasonal fees in the second quarter and other noninterest income due to lower swap fee income during the third quarter of 2018. The increase from the third quarter of 2017 was driven by higher retirement plan administration fees resulting from the acquisition of Retirement Plan Services, LLC (“RPS”) in the second quarter of 2018 and higher insurance and other financial services revenue due to account growth that were partially offset by lower other noninterest income due primarily to lower swap fees.

Noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $98.8 million, up $9.0 million, or 10.0%, from the same period in 2017. The increase from the prior year was driven by higher retirement plan administration fees due to the acquisitions of RPS in the second quarter of 2018 and of Downeast Pension Services in the second quarter of 2017. Other noninterest income in the first nine months of 2018 increased compared to the same period of 2017 due to non-recurring gains recognized in the first nine months of 2018 and ATM and debit card fees increased due to higher number of accounts and usage.

Noninterest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $66.5 million, up $1.6 million, or 2.5%, from the prior quarter and up $5.9 million, or 9.7%, from the third quarter of 2017. The increase from the prior quarter and third quarter of 2017 was driven by an increase in salaries and employee benefits expenses primarily due to the RPS acquisition, wage increases related to tax reform initiatives and higher incentive compensation associated with business growth.

Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $195.7 million, up $13.5 million, or 7.4%, from the same period in 2017. The increase from the prior year was driven by higher salaries and employee benefits due to the RPS acquisition in the second quarter of 2018, the acquisition of Downeast Pension Services in the second quarter of 2017, higher incentive compensation and wage increases related to tax reform initiatives.

Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $8.6 million, up $0.5 million, or 5.7%, from the prior quarter and down $2.8 million, or 24.4%, from the third quarter of 2017. The effective tax rate of 22.3% for the third quarter of 2018 was down from 22.4% for the second quarter of 2018 and down from 33.1% for the third quarter of 2017. The increase in income tax expense from the prior quarter was due to a higher level of taxable income. The decrease in income tax expense from the third quarter of 2017 was due to the lower effective tax rate resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act partially offset by a higher level of taxable income.

Income tax expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $23.7 million, down $6.6 million, or 21.8%, from the same period of 2017. The effective tax rate of 22.0% for the first nine months of 2018 was down from 32.0% for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in income tax expense from the prior year was due to the lower effective tax rate resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act partially offset by a higher level of taxable income and lower tax benefit from equity-based transactions. Excluding the tax benefit from equity-based transactions, the effective tax rate was 22.5% and 33.8% for the nine months ending September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
