Sturgis Bancorp, Inc. Reports Financial Results for 2023

STURGIS, MI / ACCESSWIRE / February 27, 2024 / Sturgis Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX:STBI) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended 2023.

Sturgis Bancorp (Bancorp) is the holding company for Sturgis Bank & Trust Company (Bank), and its subsidiaries Oakleaf Financial Services, Oak Mortgage, Ayres/Oak Insurance, and Oak Title Services. The Bank provides a full array of trust, commercial and consumer banking services from banking centers in Sturgis, Bangor, Bronson, Centreville, Climax, Colon, Marshall, Niles, Portage, South Haven, St. Joseph, Three Rivers, and White Pigeon, MI. Oakleaf Financial Services offers a complete range of investment and financial-advisory services. Oak Mortgage offers residential mortgages in all markets of the Bank. Ayres/Oak Insurance offers various competitive commercial and consumer insurance products. Oak Title Services offers commercial and consumer title insurance services.

Key Highlights:

  • Net loss for the fourth quarter 2023 was $(350,000).
  • Net income for 2023 was $6.0 million, compared to $6.6 million for 2022.
  • Credit quality remains strong with 98.60% of loans performing according to loan agreements. Allowance for credit losses was 1.36% of loans on December 31, 2023, compared to 1.01% on December 31, 2022. Net charge-offs (recoveries) were $(167,000) in 2023, compared to $(110,000) in 2022.
  • The Bank maintained strong capital ratios, exceeding "well-capitalized" requirements, with Tier 1 leverage capital at 8.05%.
  • Sales of residential mortgages generated $420,000 of noninterest income in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to noninterest income of $236,000 in the fourth quarter of 2022. Sales of residential mortgages generated $1.5 million of noninterest income in 2023, compared to noninterest income of $1.4 million in 2022.
  • Total assets increased 6.3% to $919.5 million during 2023.
  • Net loans increased 5.7% to $739.5 million during 2023, including a $44.9 million increase in residential mortgages.
  • Total deposits increased 11.0% to $798.9 million during 2023.

Bancorp CEO, Jason J. Hyska stated, "The fourth quarter of 2023 showed a loss for Bancorp. Bancorp had one large commercial relationship that elevated nonaccrual loans and required a large allowance for credit loss. However, overall credit quality remains good, and Bancorp expects a full restoration of the relationship in 2024. Bancorp also realized some one-time compensation expenses in the fourth quarter of 2023 associated with the retirement of the former President and CEO. Overall, the franchise value of the Bank continues to expand, primarily in our Western Michigan markets of Berrien and Van Buren Counties, driven by a team of well-seasoned bankers and strong community advisory boards. The Bank also welcomed Jon Werme, a new Market President for our Kalamazoo market. The Bank continues to maintain strong capital ratios exceeding "well-capitalized" requirements. The Bank expects modest net interest margin compression as deposit rates increase. Mortgage banking activities and other components of noninterest income contribute positively to net income diversification. Fee income includes investment advisory services, title insurance services, and a complete line of commercial, home, and auto insurance. These allow the Bank to leverage existing customer relationships and more effectively serve our customer base."

Three months ended December 31, 2023, vs. three months ended December 31, 2022 - Net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2023, was $(350,000), or $(0.16) per share, compared to net income of $1,865,000, or $0.87 per share, for the same period of the prior year.

Net interest income decreased to $6.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 from $7.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The decline was primarily due to interest expense, which increased $2.2 million to $3.9 million. Total interest and dividend income increased $2.0 million to $10.8 million.

Noninterest income was $8.9 million in 2023, compared to $7.0 million in 2022.
