1The Corporation uses non-GAAP measures of financial performance, including adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted annualized return on average assets (ROA) and adjusted annualized return on average equity (ROE), to provide meaningful information about operating performance by excluding the effects of certain items that management does not expect to have an ongoing impact on consolidated net income. Adjusted net income for the second quarter and first six months of 2020 excludes the effects of merger related expenses, branch consolidation charges and certain one-time tax benefits. For more information about these financial measures, which are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), please see “Use of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and “Reconciliation of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” below.   

The Corporation reported consolidated net income of $15.3 million for the first six months of 2021, which represents an increase of $7.9 million, or 107 percent, as compared to the first six months of 2020. Adjusted net income increased $6.8 million, or 81 percent, for the first six months of 2021 compared to the first six months of 2020.

Key highlights for the second quarter and first six months of 2021 are as follows. Comparisons are to the corresponding periods in the prior year unless otherwise stated.

  • The Corporation recorded a net reversal of provision for loan losses of $600,000 on a consolidated basis for the second quarter of 2021 and a net reversal of provision for loan losses of $320,000 for the first six months of 2021 as a result of recoveries exceeding charge-offs at the consumer finance segment and decreases to the allowance for loan losses at the community banking segment and consumer finance segment as a result of strong asset quality, partially offset by loan growth. This represents a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $4.2 million and $6.6 million for the second quarter and first six months, respectively. During the second quarter of 2021, the consumer finance segment and community banking segment released a portion of the reserves recognized during 2020, as credit deterioration since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has so far not been experienced to the extent previously anticipated;
  • The community banking segment recognized net origination fees related to Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans of $1.2 million and $2.1 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2021, respectively, primarily as a result of PPP loans that were forgiven or repaid;
  • Interest expense decreased $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $3.0 million for the first six months of 2021 due primarily to lower rates on time deposits and a shift in funding to lower cost deposits;
  • Average loans outstanding at the community banking segment, excluding PPP loans, increased 2.8 percent for the second quarter and 3.4 percent for the first six months;
  • Consolidated annualized net interest margin was 4.37 percent for the second quarter of 2021, compared to 4.61 percent and 4.33 percent for the second quarter of 2020 and first quarter of 2021, respectively, and was 4.35 percent for the first six months of 2021, compared to 4.76 percent for the first six months of 2020. The increase in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2021 was due primarily to higher average yields on loans (including higher net origination fees recognized on PPP loans) and lower cost of deposits;
  • Mortgage banking segment net income decreased 15 percent for the second quarter of 2021 and increased 17 percent for the first six months of 2021, respectively, as both periods were affected by higher margins on sales of mortgage loans, while mortgage loan originations decreased 15 percent for the second quarter of 2021 and increased 13 percent for the first six months of 2021;
  • The consumer finance segment experienced net recoveries at an annualized rate of 0.07 percent of average total loans for the first six months of 2021, compared to net charge-offs of 1.99 percent for the first six months of 2020, due to borrowers generally benefitting from government stimulus measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic, continued improvement in the credit quality of purchased loans and elevated values for used autos, which result in lower charge-offs upon sale of repossessed autos; and
  • The consumer finance segment’s average loan yield declined due to continued competition for non-prime auto loans and growth in higher quality, lower-yielding loans, including marine and recreational vehicle loans.

Tom Cherry, President and Chief Executive Officer of C&F Financial Corporation, commented, “We continue to see encouraging signs in the economies in our markets and in our business segments, although many of our business customers have struggled to hire needed employees. Each of our business segments has had an increase in net income for the first six months of the year. While we believe mortgage loan originations will decline in the second half of the year relative to last year, we are very optimistic about our 2021 earnings. Excluding the impact of PPP loans, loans continue to grow at both our community banking and consumer finance segments, and our asset quality remains very strong. We also continue to have growth in both consumer and business checking accounts, which has resulted in very strong core deposit growth compared to 2020. While net interest margin compression remains a challenge, we believe our diversified business strategy will continue to benefit us.”

Community Banking Segment.   The community banking segment reported net income of $3.9 million and $6.7 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2021, respectively, compared to $294,000 and $951,000, respectively, for the same periods in 2020. Net income increased $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $5.8 million for the first six months of 2021, compared to the same periods in 2020, due primarily to higher adjusted net income, as described below, and merger related expenses and branch consolidation charges recognized in 2020, partially offset by benefits of a change in tax law recognized in 2020.

Adjusted net income for the community banking segment, which excludes the effects of merger related expenses, branch consolidation charges and one-time income tax benefits, was $3.9 million and $6.7 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2021, respectively, compared to $560,000 and $1.9 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2020. Adjusted net income for the community banking segment increased $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $4.8 million for the first six months of 2021, compared to the same periods in 2020 due primarily to (1) lower provision for loan losses, resulting from reserves recognized in 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic, a portion of which were released in the second quarter of 2021, partially offset by loan growth, (2) lower cost of deposits, (3) higher interest income on loans, due primarily to recognition of fees on PPP loans, higher average advances to fund loans at subsidiaries (primarily related to repayment of a third-party bank line of credit at the consumer finance segment in the second quarter of 2020), and loan growth, (4) higher income from debit card interchange and (5) the sale of an other real estate owned (OREO) property in the second quarter of 2021, which resulted in a gain of $399,000, partially offset by (1) higher occupancy expense related to the opening of two financial centers in the third quarter of 2020 and (2) lower fee income from interest rate swaps for commercial borrowers.

Average loans increased $37.7 million, or 3.8 percent, for the second quarter of 2021 and $82.0 million, or 8.5 percent, for the first six months of 2021, compared to the same periods in 2020. Excluding the impact of PPP loans, average loans increased $26.0 million, or 2.8 percent, for the second quarter of 2021 and $31.3 million, or 3.4 percent, for the first six months of 2021, compared to the same periods in 2020. In addition to the increase resulting from PPP loans, the increase in average loans outstanding for the second quarter and first six months of 2021 compared to the same periods in 2020 resulted primarily from growth in the commercial real estate segment of the loan portfolio. Average deposits increased $250.6 million, or 15.8 percent, for the second quarter of 2021 and $281.3 million, or 18.4 percent, for the first six months of 2021, compared to the same periods in 2020, and the mix of deposit balances shifted away from time deposits and toward lower cost savings, money market and demand deposits.

Average loan yields were higher for the second quarter of 2021 and lower for the first six months of 2021 compared to the same periods in 2020. Interest rates declined in 2020, resulting in lower repricing of variable rate loans and lower average yields on new lending, while recognition of net origination fees on PPP loans was higher for the second quarter and first six months of 2021 compared to the same periods in 2020 as a result of PPP loans that were forgiven or repaid. PPP loans earn interest at a note rate of one percent as well as net origination fees that are amortized over the contractual term of the related loan or accelerated into interest income upon repayment of the loan. Net PPP origination fees recognized in the second quarter and first six months of 2021 were $1.2 million and $2.1 million, respectively, compared to net PPP origination fees recognized in the second quarter and first six months of 2020 of $377,000. Since the second quarter of 2020, the community banking segment has recognized $3.7 million of net fees under the PPP, and there were unrecognized net deferred PPP fees at June 30, 2021 of $2.6 million, which are expected to be recognized primarily in 2021 and 2022. Also offsetting the effect of lower interest rates on loans for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020 was higher interest income on purchased credit impaired (PCI) loans. The recognition of interest income on PCI loans, which were acquired in connection with past mergers and acquisitions, is based on management’s expectation of future payments of principal and interest, which are inherently uncertain. Earlier than expected repayments of certain PCI loans resulted in the recognition of additional interest income during the second quarters and first six months of 2021 and 2020. Interest income recognized on PCI loans was $1.0 million and $729,000 for the second quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively, and was $1.5 million and $1.7 million for the first six months of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

C&F Bank’s total nonperforming assets were $3.7 million at June 30, 2021 compared to $3.9 million at December 31, 2020. Nonperforming assets included $2.9 million in nonaccrual loans and $857,000 in OREO at June 30, 2021 and included $3.0 million in nonaccrual loans and $907,000 in OREO at December 31, 2020. Nonaccrual loans were comprised primarily of one commercial relationship at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The community banking segment recorded a net reversal of provision for loan losses of $200,000 for the second quarter and first six months of 2021, compared to provision for loan losses of $1.4 million and $2.4 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2020, respectively. As of June 30, 2021, compared to December 31, 2020, there have not been significant changes in the overall credit quality of the loan portfolio, although management believes that the effects of PPP loans and government stimulus may still be delaying signs of credit deterioration. At June 30, 2021, the allowance for loan losses decreased to $14.8 million, compared to $15.0 million at December 31, 2020. Management believes that the level of the allowance for loan losses is sufficient to absorb losses inherent in the portfolio. However, if there are further challenges to the economic recovery, including a resurgence in COVID-19 cases or weaker than expected consumer spending, additional provision for loan losses may be required in future periods.

Mortgage Banking Segment.   The mortgage banking segment reported net income of $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to net income of $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2020. For the first six months of 2021, the mortgage banking segment reported net income of $4.5 million, compared to net income of $3.9 million for the first six months of 2020.

The decrease in net income of the mortgage banking segment for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020 was due primarily to higher salaries and benefits expense and lower volume of mortgage loan originations, partially offset by higher margins on loans originated for resale and higher lender services volume. The increase in net income of the mortgage banking segment for the first six months of 2021 compared to the first six months of 2020 was due primarily to higher margins on loans originated for resale and higher fee income as a result of higher volume of mortgage loan originations and higher lender services volume, partially offset by higher expenses, primarily tied to loan production, including salaries and benefits expense. Salaries and benefits expense was higher for the second quarter and first six months of 2021 compared to the same periods in 2020 as a result of higher average rates of loan officer commissions and due to the addition of operations staff to meet the demands of higher mortgage loan production volume.

Mortgage loan originations for the mortgage banking segment were $381.3 million and $803.8 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2021, respectively, compared to $448.3 million and $708.6 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2020, respectively. Mortgage loan originations for the mortgage banking segment during the second quarter of 2021 for refinancings and home purchases were $108.2 million and $273.1 million, respectively, compared to $199.6 million and $248.7 million, respectively, during the second quarter of 2020.   Mortgage loan originations for the mortgage banking segment during the first six months of 2021 for refinancings and home purchases were $343.4 million and $460.4 million, respectively, compared to $335.4 million and $373.2 million, respectively, during the first six months of 2020.  

Consumer Finance Segment.   The consumer finance segment reported net income of $2.9 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to net income of $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2020. For the first six months of 2021, the consumer finance segment reported net income of $5.4 million, compared to net income of $3.6 million for the first six months of 2020.

The increase in net income of the consumer finance segment for the second quarter and first six months of 2021 compared to the same periods in 2020 was due primarily to lower provision for loan losses, resulting from reserves recognized in 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic, a portion of which were released in the second quarter of 2021, and lower net charge-offs, partially offset by lower interest income due to lower average yields on loans. The average yield on loans for the second quarter and first six months of 2021 was lower compared to the same periods in 2020 due to continued competition in the non-prime automobile loan business, including the effect of a lower interest rate environment, and the consumer finance segment’s pursuing growth in higher quality, lower yielding loans, which include prime marine and recreational vehicle (RV) loans.

The consumer finance segment experienced annualized net recoveries for the first six months of 2021 of 0.07 percent of average total loans, compared to net charge-offs of 1.99 percent for the first six months of 2020. The first six months of 2021 was the first reporting period in the consumer finance segment’s history that recoveries exceeded charge-offs. The decline in the net charge-off ratio for the first six months of 2021 compared to the first six months of 2020 reflects a lower number of charge-offs during 2021, due to improvement in loan performance, and lower losses per loan charged off as a result of a strong used car market. Improvement in loan performance has resulted from the consumer finance segment continuing to purchase higher quality loans as well as borrowers benefitting from the government’s stimulus measures in response to the pandemic. At June 30, 2021, total delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans was 1.77 percent, compared to 3.08 percent at December 31, 2020 and 2.05 percent at June 30, 2020. The allowance for loan losses was $23.4 million, or 7.04 percent of total loans at June 30, 2021, compared to $23.5 million, or 7.53 percent of total loans at December 31, 2020. The decrease in the level of the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans is primarily a result of lower net charge-offs and the release of a portion of the reserves recorded in 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Management believes that the level of the allowance for loan losses is sufficient to absorb losses inherent in the portfolio. However, if there are further challenges to the economic recovery, including a resurgence in COVID-19 cases, weaker than expected consumer spending or a reduction in government stimulus prior to a recovery in employment, additional provision for loan losses may be required in future periods.

Capital and Dividends. The Corporation increased its quarterly cash dividend by 5.3 percent compared to the previous quarterly dividend, to 40 cents per share during the second quarter of 2021. This dividend, paid to shareholders on July 1, 2021, represents a payout ratio of 18.3 percent of earnings per share for the second quarter of 2021. The Board of Directors of the Corporation continually reviews the amount of cash dividends per share and the resulting dividend payout ratio in light of changes in economic conditions, current and future capital requirements, and expected future earnings.

In November 2020, the Board of Directors authorized a program, effective November 17, 2020, to repurchase up to 365,000 shares of the Corporation’s common stock through November 30, 2021. During the second quarter and first six months of 2021, the Corporation repurchased $4.5 million of its common stock. As of June 30, 2021, the Corporation has made aggregate common stock repurchases of 97,714 shares for an aggregate amount repurchased of $4.7 million under the share repurchase program.

Use of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The accounting and reporting policies of the Corporation conform to GAAP in the United States and prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, certain non-GAAP measures are used by management to supplement the evaluation of the Corporation’s performance. These include adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted ROE, adjusted ROA, tangible book value per share, and the following fully-taxable equivalent (FTE) measures: interest income on loans-FTE, interest income on securities-FTE, total interest income-FTE and net interest income-FTE.

Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures provides meaningful information about operating performance by enhancing comparability with other financial periods, other financial institutions, and between different sources of interest income. The non-GAAP measures used by management enhance comparability by excluding the effects of (1) items that do not reflect ongoing operating performance, including non-recurring gains or charges, (2) balances of intangible assets, including goodwill, that vary significantly between institutions, and (3) tax benefits that are not consistent across different opportunities for investment. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP-basis financial statements, and other bank holding companies may define or calculate these or similar measures differently. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Corporation to evaluate and measure the Corporation’s performance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is presented below.
