Union Bankshares, Inc.: Union Bankshares Announces Earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and Declares Quarterly Dividend

MORRISVILLE, Vt., April 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Union Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ - UNB) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and declared a regular quarterly cash dividend. Consolidated net income for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $2.4 million, or $0.53 per share, compared to $3.0 million, or $0.66 cents per share, for the same period in 2023, a decrease of $560 thousand, or 18.8%.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $1.42 billion as of March 31, 2024 compared to $1.36 billion as of March 31, 2023, an increase of $55.5 million, or 4.1%. Loan growth was the primary driver of asset growth during the first quarter with total loans of $1.04 billion as of March 31, 2024 including $3.4 million in loans held for sale, compared to $976.6 million as of March 31, 2023, with $2.8 million in loans held for sale. Asset quality remains strong with minimal past due loans and no charge-offs for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

Investment securities were $259.3 million at March 31, 2024 compared to $276.8 million at March 31, 2023. The Company classifies its investment portfolio as available-for-sale and is required to report balances at their fair market value. As a result of the fair market value adjustment, unrealized losses in the investment portfolio were $44.7 million as of March 31, 2024. The unrealized losses in the portfolio are due to the interest rate environment as current rates remain above the coupon rates on these securities resulting in fair market values less than current book values. The offset to recording the unrealized losses is an increase in deferred taxes included in other assets and accumulated other comprehensive losses included in total equity as discussed below.

Total deposits were $1.17 billion as of March 31, 2024 and include $100.0 million of purchased brokered deposits compared to deposits of $1.23 billion as of March 31, 2023 with $108.0 million of purchased deposits. Federal Home Loan Bank advances of $115.7 million were outstanding as of March 31, 2024 compared to $45.1 million outstanding as of March 31, 2023. In addition to borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank, $35.0 million in advances from the Federal Reserve's Bank Term Funding Program were outstanding as of March 31, 2024.

The Company had total equity capital of $63.8 million and a book value per share of $14.12 as of March 31, 2024 compared to $60.6 million and a book value of $13.44 per share as of March 31, 2023. Total equity capital is reduced by accumulated other comprehensive loss as it relates to the fair market value adjustment for investment securities. Accumulated other comprehensive loss as of March 31, 2024 was $34.9 million compared to $33.5 million as of March 31, 2023.

Income Statement

Consolidated net income was $2.41 million for the first quarter of 2024 compared to $2.98 million for the first quarter of 2023, a decrease of $560 thousand, or 18.8%. The decrease in net income was comprised of a decrease in net interest income of $967 thousand and an increase in noninterest expenses of $492 thousand, partially offset by an increase in noninterest income of $301 thousand, and decreases of $304 thousand in credit loss expense and $294 thousand in income tax expense.

Net interest income was $9.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $10.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, a decrease of $967 thousand, or 9.7%. Interest income was $15.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $13.0 million for the same period in 2023, an increase of $2.6 million, or 19.8%, due to the larger earning asset base and higher interest rates on new loan volume. Interest expense increased $3.5 million to $6.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $3.1 million for the same period in 2023, due to utilization of higher cost wholesale funding, such as brokered deposits, and customers seeking higher returns on their savings.

Noninterest income was $2.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $2.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, an increase of $301 thousand, or 13.2%. Sales of qualifying residential loans to the secondary market for 2024 were $9.7 million resulting in net gains of $287 thousand, compared to sales of $11.8 million and net gains on sales of $194 thousand for the same period in 2023. Noninterest expenses increased $492 thousand, or 5.6%, during the comparison periods due to increases of $51 thousand in salaries and wages, $112 thousand in employee benefits, $65 thousand in equipment expenses, and $273 thousand in other expenses. Income tax expense decreased $294 thousand during the comparison periods.

Dividend Declared

The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.36 per share for the quarter payable May 2, 2024 to shareholders of record as of April 27, 2024.
