Parkway Acquisition Corp. Announces First Quarter 2022 Results, Crosses $1 Billion Threshold

PKKW

FLOYD, Va. and INDEPENDENCE, Va., May 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Parkway Acquisition Corp. ("Parkway" or the "Company") (OTC QX: PKKW) – the holding company for Skyline National Bank ("Skyline" or the "Bank") – announced its results of operations for the first quarter 2022.

Parkway recorded net income of $2.4 million, or $0.43 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 compared to net income of $1.8 million, or $0.31 per share, for the same period in 2021. First quarter 2022 earnings represented an annualized return on average assets ("ROAA") of 0.98% and an annualized return on average equity ("ROAE") of 11.75%, compared to 0.86% and 8.79%, respectively, for the same period last year.

President and CEO Blake Edwards stated, "We are pleased with our results for the first quarter 2022 and are proud to report that we have reached the milestone of crossing the $1.0 billion mark in total assets. During the first quarter of 2022 we grew our core loans (excluding SBA-PPP balances) at an annualized rate of over 16%. We are also pleased to report that these strong earnings, combined with a reduction in shares outstanding due to our successful repurchase program, resulted in an increase in earnings per share of 38.71% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the same period last year. We expect continued pressure on our net interest margin as the SBA-PPP program forgiveness winds down, however, increases in the federal funds rate, could have a positive impact on margins as the year progresses."

Edwards concluded, "Deposit growth was strong as well with an increase of $22.9 million, or 2.55% during the first quarter 2022, as the Skyline brand continues to be well received throughout our market area. In February 2022, we opened our second branch in Hickory, NC, bringing our total number of branches to 25. I believe we are well positioned for continued growth and success in the future and know that our employees will continue to deliver on our brand promise of being "Always our Best" for our customers each and every day."

First Quarter 2022 Income Statement Review

Net interest income after provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2021 was $7.8 million compared to $7.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, primarily reflecting increased interest income, and a reduction in interest expense and provision for loan losses. Total interest income was $8.5 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $8.1 million for the same period last year. Interest income on loans increased in the quarterly comparison primarily due to strong organic loan growth from the year ago period, as well as SBA-PPP related interest and fees. Management also anticipates that higher rates in the current year will have a positive impact on both earning assets and loan yields. Interest income on securities increased by $306 thousand in the quarterly comparison, as a result of the $70.1 million increase in the securities portfolio, excluding market value changes, from the year ago period. The Company successfully reduced interest expense on deposits by $242 thousand, or 35.12%, in the quarterly comparison, reflecting rate reductions in deposit offerings as well as a reduction of $6.7 million in time deposit balances.

First quarter 2022 noninterest income was $1.6 million compared with $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. Income from service charges and fees increased by $217 thousand, offsetting a $143 thousand decrease in mortgage origination fees as mortgage origination volume declined compared to the year ago period. Nonrecurring income from life insurance contracts of $217 thousand was included in the first quarter of 2022, as was a $58 thousand gain on the sale of asset holdings in the 2021 period.

Noninterest expense in the first quarter of 2022 was $6.5 million compared with $6.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $250 thousand, or 4.00%. There was a minimal increase in salary and benefit costs of $24 thousand, while occupancy and equipment expenses increased $91 thousand in the quarterly comparisons primarily due to branch expansion cost. FDIC assessments increased by $37 thousand to adjust for continued deposit growth, offsetting a decrease in core deposit intangible amortization of $30 thousand in the quarterly comparison. Other expenses in the first quarter of 2022 included an $8 thousand prepayment fee incurred on the paydown of $5.0 million in FHLB advances.

Net income before taxes increased by $641 thousand in the quarterly comparison causing an increase in income tax expense of $82 thousand.

Balance Sheet Review

Total assets increased in the first quarter of 2022 by $11.6 million, or 1.16%, to $1.0 billion at March 31, 2022 from $995.8 million at December 31, 2021, and increased by $100.6 million, or 11.09%, from $906.8 million at March 31, 2021. The growth in assets during the first quarter of 2022 primarily reflects an increase in gross loans and investment securities resulting from an increase in deposits of $22.9 million. Total loans increased during the first quarter by $14.1 million, or 2.06%, to $697.6 million at March 31, 2022 from $683.5 million at December 31, 2021, and remained comparable to the $697.7 million at March 31, 2021. SBA-PPP loans decreased by $11.8 million during the first quarter 2022; however, this decrease was offset by higher yielding organic loan growth of $26.0 million during the quarter. Gross loans at March 31, 2022 included $13.5 million in SBA-PPP loans with net deferred fees of $805 thousand.

Asset quality has remained strong, with a ratio of nonperforming loans to total loans of 0.23% at March 31, 2022 compared to 0.19% at December 31, 2021. The allowance for loan losses was approximately 0.83% of total loans as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The allowance ratio excluding $12.7 million of SBA-PPP loans, net of deferred fees, would have been 0.85% at March 31, 2022. Management's estimate of probable credit losses inherent in the acquired Cardinal Bankshares Corporation and Great State Bank loan portfolios was reflected as a purchase discount which will continue to be accreted into income over the remaining life of the acquired loans. As of March 31, 2022, the remaining unaccreted discount on the acquired loan portfolios totaled $886 thousand.

Investment securities increased by $19.7 million during the first quarter to $149.4 million at March 31, 2022 from $129.7 million at December 31, 2021, and increased by $59.8 million from $89.6 million at March 31, 2021. The increase in the first quarter of 2022 was the result of $33.0 million in purchases, offset by paydowns, calls, and maturities of $3.9 million, and an increase in unrealized losses of $9.4 million as a result of the increase in interest rates during the quarter.

The cash value of life insurance increased by $3.3 million, or 17.86%, during the first quarter of 2022 as a result of $3.5 million in purchases of life insurance contracts, offset by a $278 thousand redemption of contracts.

Total deposits increased in the first quarter of 2022 by $22.9 million, or 2.55%, to $921.1 million at March 31, 2022 from $898.2 million at December 31, 2021, and increased $113.8 million, or 14.11%, compared to $807.3 million at March 31, 2021. Deposit growth continues to reflect increased balances held by customers, organic growth in our markets and new customer deposits. Lower-cost core deposits (demand deposits, savings, and money market accounts) increased by $27.1 million during the quarter while time deposit balances decreased by $4.2 million.

Total stockholders' equity was $79.4 million and book value per share was $14.12 at March 31, 2022 compared with $85.2 million and book value per share of $15.20 at December 31, 2021. The change during the quarter reflects dividend payments of $843 thousand, and an unrealized decrease in the value of the securities portfolio as a result of increased interest rates during the quarter. As interest rates rise, we anticipate continued negative pressure on the market value of our investment portfolio which is recognized on our balance sheet as a reduction in stockholders' equity. However, management does not anticipate the need to sell any investment securities prior to their scheduled maturity, therefore we do not expect market value changes to impact future earnings.
