Community Bank System, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results

SYRACUSE, N.Y., July 25, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Community Bank System, Inc. (NYSE: CBU) reported second quarter 2022 net income of $39.8 million, or $0.73 per fully-diluted share. This compares to $47.9 million of net income, or $0.88 per fully-diluted share for the second quarter of 2021. The $0.15, or 17.0%, decrease in earnings per share was primarily attributable to increases in the provision for credit losses and operating expenses, offset, in part, by increases in net interest income and noninterest revenues and decreases in income taxes and fully-diluted shares outstanding. Comparatively, the Company recorded $0.86 in fully-diluted earnings per share for the linked first quarter of 2022. Operating earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes acquisition expenses, acquisition-related provision for credit losses, acquisition-related contingent consideration adjustments and unrealized gain (loss) on equity securities, net of tax, was $0.85 for the second quarter of 2022, as compared to $0.88 in the second quarter of 2021 and $0.87 in the first quarter of 2022. Second quarter 2021 results were enhanced by a net benefit recorded in the provision for credit losses and higher Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP")-related revenues than the second quarter of 2022 which, net of tax, were responsible for a $0.13 decrease in fully-diluted operating earnings per share year-over-year. The $0.02 decrease in operating earnings per share from the first quarter of 2022 was primarily driven by higher operating expenses, a higher provision for credit losses and lower noninterest revenues, offset, in part, by an increase in net interest income and a decrease in income taxes. Second quarter 2022 adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue per share, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes income taxes, the provision for credit losses, acquisition-related provision for credit losses, acquisition expenses, acquisition-related contingent consideration adjustments and unrealized gain (loss) on equity securities from net income, of $1.13 was up $0.07 in comparison to the second quarter of 2021 and $0.01 from the first quarter of 2022.

Mark E. Tryniski, President and CEO of Community Bank System, Inc., said, "I am pleased with the Company’s performance and the accomplishments we achieved during the second quarter. The hard work and dedication from our team enabled us to successfully acquire and integrate the former Elmira Savings Bank ("Elmira"). This strategic acquisition extends and broadens our customer base and banking presence in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions of New York, while enhancing our consumer mortgage origination capabilities and product offerings. In addition, the Company meaningfully improved its net interest margin, produced solid organic loan growth across all five of its major loan segments, continued to maintain very good asset quality and produced solid earnings results. Excluding loans acquired in connection with the Elmira acquisition and PPP loans, ending loans increased $313.4 million, or 4.2% during the quarter, marking the fourth consecutive quarter of organic loan growth for the Company. This helped drive the expansion of the Company’s net interest margin, resulting in record levels of net interest income for the quarter. In addition, the Company recorded a $4.6 million, or 7.8%, increase in noninterest revenues over the prior year’s second quarter despite market-related headwinds, which negatively impacted fiduciary-related revenues in our wealth management and employee benefit services businesses. While revenue growth in the second quarter was offset, in part, by increases in operating expenses, we believe we are very well-positioned heading into the third quarter. Asset quality remained strong with annualized net charge-offs of just two basis points in the quarter. Nonperforming loans as a percent of total loans decreased to 0.46% at June 30, 2022, compared to 0.49% at the end of the first quarter of 2022 and 0.97% one year earlier. Although ending total deposit balances were up in the second quarter driven by the Elmira acquisition, municipal deposits decreased $368.4 million during the quarter due in part to seasonal factors."

Mr. Tryniski continued, "GAAP basis earnings per share were $0.73 for the quarter, as compared to GAAP earnings per share of $0.88 in the second quarter of 2021. Excluding acquisition expenses, acquisition-related provision for credit losses and acquisition-related contingent consideration adjustment, the Company recorded $0.85 of operating earnings per share, a non-GAAP measure, in the second quarter of 2022. This compares to $0.88 of operating earnings per share in the second quarter of 2021. While earnings per share were down from the prior year period, this was largely driven by an increase in the provision for credit losses and an expected decrease in PPP-related interest income. During the second quarter of 2022, the Company recorded $2.1 million in the provision for credit losses, excluding acquisition-related provision for credit losses, compared to a $4.3 million net benefit recorded in the provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2021, reflective of improvements in the economic outlook at that time as the U.S. rebounded from effects of the pandemic. Additionally, the Company recorded PPP-related interest income of $1.1 million during the second quarter of 2022, as compared to $3.9 million during the second quarter of 2021. The increase in the provision for credit losses and the decrease in PPP-related revenues, net of tax, were responsible for a $0.13 decrease in fully-diluted operating earnings per share year-over-year. Adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue per share, a non-GAAP measure, of $1.13 was up $0.07, or 6.6%, over the prior year’s second quarter."

Mr. Tryniski further noted, "The Company achieved its fourth consecutive quarter of growth in loans outstanding, as our team maintained its enhanced focus on organic loan generation, which included increases in all the Company’s major loan portfolios, including business lending, consumer mortgage, home equity, consumer direct and consumer indirect loans. The combination of organic loan growth, the Elmira acquisition, the deployment of low yield cash equivalents into the investment securities portfolio, stable funding costs and higher market interest rates for new loans drove an $11.0 million, or 12.0%, increase in net interest income over the prior year’s second quarter, despite a $2.8 million decrease in PPP-related interest income. With loan growth momentum, including healthy pipelines, and a solid set of new business opportunities in our financial services operations, we are pleased with the many near-term growth opportunities we see ahead."

The Company recorded total revenues of $167.2 million in the second quarter of 2022, an increase of $15.7 million, or 10.3%, over the prior year’s second quarter. The increase in total revenues between the periods was driven by an $11.0 million, or 12.0%, increase in net interest income, a $1.8 million, or 11.8%, increase in deposit service and other banking fees, a $1.4 million, or 5.3% increase in employee benefit services revenues, and a $1.5 million, or 9.0%, increase in wealth management and insurance services revenues. Comparatively, total revenues were up $6.7 million, or 4.2%, over first quarter 2022 results, due to an $8.3 million, or 8.7%, increase in net interest income, offset, in part, by a $1.6 million, or 2.4%, decrease in noninterest revenues, as market-driven conditions began to impact the Company’s financial services revenues.

The Company recorded net interest income of $103.1 million in the second quarter of 2022. This compares to $92.1 million of net interest income recorded in the second quarter of 2021. Between comparable periods, the Company’s average interest-earning assets increased $1.10 billion, or 8.2%, due to the large net inflows of funds from government stimulus programs, PPP loan originations and the second quarter 2022 acquisition of Elmira, further benefitting from the tax equivalent net interest margin increasing from 2.79% in the second quarter of 2021 to 2.89% in the second quarter of 2022. The tax equivalent average yield on interest-earning assets in the second quarter of 2022 of 2.97% was eight basis points higher than the tax equivalent average yield on interest-earning assets of 2.89% in the second quarter of 2021. Comparatively, the Company recorded net interest income of $94.9 million during the first quarter of 2022, $8.3 million less than second quarter 2022 results, while the tax equivalent net interest margin was 2.73%.

Interest income and fees on loans increased $2.1 million, or 2.7%, from $75.9 million in the second quarter of 2021 to $78.0 million in the second quarter of 2022. Average total loans outstanding increased $383.9 million, or 5.2% between the comparable quarterly periods, while the weighted-average tax equivalent loan yield decreased 11 basis points from 4.16% in the second quarter of 2021 to 4.05% in the second quarter of 2022. The decrease in the tax equivalent loan yields between the periods was driven by a $2.8 million decrease in PPP-related interest income. During the second quarter of 2022, the Company recorded $1.1 million of PPP-related interest income, down from $3.9 million of PPP-related interest income recorded in the prior year’s second quarter. Comparatively, the Company recorded $72.5 million of interest income and fees on loans during the first quarter of 2022, including $1.7 million of PPP-related interest income, while the average tax equivalent yield on loans was 3.99%.

Interest income on investments, including cash equivalents, increased $8.8 million, or 45.0%, between the second quarter of 2021 and the second quarter of 2022. The increase in interest income on investments was driven by both an increase in average outstanding investment balances and an increase in the tax equivalent average yield on investments, including cash equivalents, between the periods. The tax-equivalent average yield on investments, including cash equivalents, increased from 1.34% in the second quarter of 2021 to 1.73% in the second quarter of 2022, reflective of a significant change in the composition of investment securities and cash equivalents and an increase in market interest rates. The average book value of investments increased $714.9 million, or 11.9%, between the comparable periods. This included a $2.32 billion, or 58.6%, increase in the investments securities portfolio, offset, in part, by a $1.60 billion decrease in the average balance of cash equivalents, driven by the Company’s investment security purchase activities between the periods. The average tax equivalent yield on the investment securities portfolio, excluding cash equivalents, decreased 18 basis points from 1.99% in the second quarter of 2021 to 1.81% in the second quarter of 2022, while the average yield on cash equivalents increased 54 basis points from 0.11% to 0.65%. Although the tax equivalent average yield on the investment securities portfolio decreased 18 basis points between the periods, the tax equivalent average yield on investments, including cash equivalents, increased 39 basis points due to the large increase in the average outstanding balance of investment securities with a significantly higher yield than cash equivalents.

Interest expense decreased $0.2 million, or 6.8%, from $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2021 to $3.0 million in the second quarter of 2022. Although average interest-bearing deposit liabilities increased $687.2 million, or 8.0%, between the periods, interest expense decreased due primarily to decreases in the average outstanding balance and interest rate paid on time deposits. The Company’s average cost of funds was 0.09% in the second quarter of 2022, down from 0.10% during the second quarter of 2021. Given the recent increases in both short-term and long-term market interest rates, the Company expects interest expense to increase in both the third and fourth quarters of 2022.

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses of $6.0 million, $3.9 million of which was due to the acquisition of Elmira. This compares to a $4.3 million net benefit recorded in the provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2021. The Company recorded net loan charge-offs of $0.4 million, or an annualized 0.02% of average loans outstanding, during the second quarter of 2022, as compared to net loan recoveries of $0.6 million, or an annualized 0.03% of average loans outstanding, for the second quarter of 2021. On a year-to-date basis, the Company has recorded net loan charge-offs of $0.9 million, or an annualized 0.02% of average loans outstanding. The Company’s allowance for credit losses increased $5.4 million from the end of the first quarter of 2022, due in part to a $750.4 million increase in non-PPP loans outstanding, including $437.0 million of loans acquired from Elmira, combined with economic forecasts moderately deteriorating during the second quarter of 2022. Comparatively, in the second quarter of 2021, economic forecasts reflected a post-vaccine economic recovery and loans outstanding remaining on pandemic-related payment deferral decreased significantly, resulting in a release of reserves in that quarter.

Employee benefit services revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were $28.9 million, up $1.4 million, or 5.3%, in comparison to the second quarter of 2021. The improvement in revenues was driven by increases in employee benefit trust and custodial fees, as well as incremental revenues from the acquisition of Fringe Benefits Design of Minnesota, Inc. ("FBD") during the third quarter of 2021. Wealth management revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were $8.1 million, down slightly from $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2021. The $0.1 million, or 1.0%, decrease in wealth management revenues was primarily driven by a decline in trust services revenues. The Company recorded insurance services revenues of $9.8 million in the second quarter of 2022, which represents a $1.6 million, or 19.1%, increase over the prior year’s second quarter, driven by organic expansion, as well as the second quarter 2021 acquisition of a Florida-based personal lines insurance agency and third quarter 2021 acquisition of a Boston-based specialty-lines insurance practice. Banking noninterest revenues increased $1.7 million, or 11.0%, from $15.5 million in the second quarter of 2021 to $17.2 million in the second quarter of 2022. This was driven by a $1.8 million, or 11.8%, increase in deposit service and other banking fees that benefitted from the continued recovery of economic activity as the impact of the pandemic recedes and incremental revenues from the Elmira acquisition, offset, in part, by a $0.1 million decrease in mortgage banking revenue. Comparatively, the Company recorded $29.6 million of employee benefit services revenues, $8.6 million of wealth management revenues and $10.4 million of insurance services revenues during the first quarter of 2022, which on a combined basis were $1.8 million higher than the financial services revenues generated in the second quarter of 2022, reflecting the impact from market-related headwinds. First quarter 2022 banking noninterest revenues were $17.0 million, $0.2 million, or 1.2%, lower than second quarter 2022 banking noninterest revenues.

The Company recorded $110.4 million in total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $93.5 million of total operating expenses in the prior year’s second quarter. The $16.9 million, or 18.0%, increase in operating expenses was attributable to a $7.5 million, or 13.0%, increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $4.4 million increase in acquisition-related expenses, a $3.4 million, or 36.5%, increase in other expenses, a $0.8 million, or 6.6%, increase in data processing and communications expenses, a $0.6 million, or 18.6%, increase in the amortization of intangible assets and a $0.2 million, or 1.5%, increase in occupancy and equipment expenses. The increase in salaries and benefits expense was driven by increases in merit and incentive-related employee wages, acquisition-related staffing increases, higher payroll taxes and higher employee benefit-related expenses. Other expenses were up due to the general increase in the level of business activities and incremental expenses associated with operating an expanded franchise subsequent to the Elmira acquisition, including increases in business development and marketing expenses, insurance, professional fees and travel-related expenses. The increase in data processing and communications expenses was due to the Company’s implementation of new customer-facing digital technologies and back office systems between the comparable periods. The slight increase in occupancy and equipment expense was driven by inflationary pressures. In comparison, the Company recorded $99.8 million of total operating expenses in the first quarter of 2022. The $10.6 million, or 10.6%, increase in total operating expenses between the first quarter of 2022 and the second quarter of 2022 was largely attributable to a $4.0 million increase in acquisition-related expenses, a $3.8 million, or 6.1%, increase in salaries and employee benefits and a $2.3 million increase in other expenses due to inflationary pressures and incremental expenses associated with operating an expanded franchise subsequent to the Elmira acquisition.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2022 was 21.6%, down from 23.1% in the second quarter of 2021. In the second quarter of 2021, the Company’s effective tax rate was driven up by an increase in certain state income tax rates that were enacted during the period.

The Company also provides supplemental reporting of its results on an "operating," "adjusted" and "tangible" basis, from which it excludes the after-tax effect of amortization of core deposit and other intangible assets (and the related goodwill, core deposit intangible and other intangible asset balances, net of applicable deferred tax amounts), accretion on non-purchased credit deteriorated ("PCD") loans, expenses associated with acquisitions, acquisition-related provision for credit losses, acquisition-related contingent consideration adjustments, litigation accrual expenses and unrealized gain (loss) on equity securities. In addition, the Company provides supplemental reporting for "adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision net revenues," which subtracts the provision for credit losses, acquisition expenses, acquisition-related contingent consideration adjustments, litigation accrual expenses and unrealized gain (loss) on equity securities from income before income taxes. The amounts for such items are presented in the tables that accompany this release. Although these items are non-GAAP measures, the Company’s management believes this information helps investors understand the effect of acquisition and other non-recurring activity in its reported results. Diluted adjusted net earnings per share were $0.89 in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $0.91 in both the second quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022. Adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue per share was $1.13 in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $1.06 in the second quarter of 2021 and $1.12 in the first quarter of 2022.

Financial Position

The Company’s total assets were $15.49 billion at June 30, 2022, representing a $686.5 million, or 4.6%, increase from one year prior and a $138.1 million, or 0.9%, decrease from the prior quarter end. The increase in the Company’s total assets during the prior twelve-month period was primarily due to net inflows of deposits between the periods and the Elmira acquisition. Average deposit balances increased $1.03 billion, or 8.4%, between the second quarter of 2021 and the second quarter of 2022. Likewise, average earning assets were up from $13.37 billion in the second quarter of 2021 to $14.47 billion in the second quarter of 2022, representing a $1.10 billion, or 8.2%, increase. This included a $2.32 billion, or 58.6%, increase in average book value of investment securities and a $383.9 million, or 5.2%, increase in average loans outstanding, partially offset by a $1.60 billion, or 77.2%, decrease in average cash equivalents. Despite the Elmira acquisition during the second quarter of 2022, total assets decreased from the prior quarter end due primarily to a net outflow of municipal deposits totaling $368.4 million due in part to seasonal factors and a $260.2 million decrease in the market-value adjustment on the available-for-sale investment securities portfolio due to an increase in market interest rates.

On a linked quarter basis, average earning assets increased $235.3 million, or 1.7%, due primarily to the Elmira acquisition. Average deposit balances increased $260.7 million, or 2.0%, compared to the first quarter of 2022. The average book value of investment securities increased $357.7 million, or 6.0%, while average cash equivalents decreased $458.2 million, or 49.2% during the quarter, primarily due to the Company’s investment securities purchase activities and loan growth. Average loan balances increased $335.8 million, or 4.5%, as the acquisition of Elmira and strong organic growth more than offset a $34.7 million decrease in average PPP loan balances due to loan forgiveness activities during the quarter. Average loan balances for consumer mortgages, business lending, consumer direct loans, home equity loans and consumer indirect loans increased during the second quarter, due to the Elmira acquisition and organic growth.

Ending loans at June 30, 2022 of $8.14 billion were $722.4 million, or 9.7%, higher than the first quarter of 2022 and $900.5 million, or 12.4%, higher than one year prior. The increase in ending loans year-over-year was driven by increases in all loan categories, including consumer mortgage, consumer indirect, business lending, home equity and consumer direct loans, due to the Elmira acquisition and net organic growth despite a $259.9 million decrease in PPP loans. Over the prior twelve month period, consumer mortgage loans increased $495.3 million, or 20.6%, consumer indirect loans increased $200.2 million, or 18.0%, business lending loans increased $145.5 million, or 4.6%, home equity loans increased $34.3 million, or 8.8%, and consumer direct loans increased $25.1 million, or 16.9%. The increase in loans outstanding on a linked quarter basis was driven by a $311.2 million, or 12.0%, increase in consumer mortgage loans, a $229.5 million, or 7.4%, increase in business lending loans, a $133.4 million, or 11.3%, increase in consumer indirect loans, a $27.1 million, or 6.8%, increase in home equity loans and a $21.2 million, or 13.9%, increase in consumer direct loans, due to the Elmira acquisition and organic growth.

The Company’s liquidity position remains strong. The Company’s banking subsidiary, Community Bank, N.A. (the "Bank"), maintains a funding base largely comprised of core noninterest-bearing demand deposit accounts and low cost interest-bearing checking, savings and money market deposit accounts with customers that operate, reside or work within its branch footprint. At June 30, 2022, the Company’s readily available sources of liquidity totaled $5.82 billion, including cash and cash equivalents balances, net of float, of $120.2 million. The Company also maintains an available-for-sale investment securities portfolio, comprised primarily of highly-liquid U.S. Treasury securities, highly-rated municipal securities and U.S. agency mortgage-backed securities, which totaled $5.57 billion at June 30, 2022, $3.45 billion of which was unpledged as collateral. The Bank’s unused borrowing capacity at the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York at June 30, 2022 was $1.81 billion and it had access to $435.3 million of funding availability at the Federal Reserve Bank’s discount window.

Although there remains some uncertainty around the duration of the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company’s management believes that its financial position remains strong. The Company’s capital planning and management activities, coupled with its historically strong earnings performance, diversified streams of revenue and prudent dividend practices, have allowed it to build and maintain strong capital reserves. Shareholders’ equity of $1.66 billion at June 30, 2022 was $399.4 million, or 19.4%, lower than one year ago despite strong earnings retention because of a $482.8 million decline in the after-tax market value adjustment on the Company’s available-for-sale investment securities portfolio due to higher market interest rates. Shareholders’ equity was also down $190.4 million, or 10.3%, from the end of the first quarter of 2022, driven by a $197.0 million decline in the after-tax market value adjustment of the Company’s available-for-sale investment securities portfolio and $12.9 million of treasury share purchases.

At June 30, 2022, all of the Company’s regulatory capital ratios significantly exceeded well-capitalized standards. More specifically, the Company’s tier 1 leverage ratio, a common measure used to evaluate a financial institution’s capital strength, was 8.65% at June 30, 2022, which substantially exceeds the regulatory well-capitalized standard of 5.0%. The Company’s net tangible equity to net tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) was 5.40% at June 30, 2022, down from 9.02% a year earlier and 6.98% at the end of the first quarter of 2022. The decrease in the net tangible equity to net tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) from one year prior was primarily driven by a $473.3 million, or 37.5%, decrease in tangible equity due to the aforementioned decline in the after-tax market value adjustment and a $75.2 million net increase in intangible assets due to acquisitions completed between the periods and a $612.6 million, or 4.4%, increase in tangible assets due to the aforementioned Elmira acquisition and net inflows of deposits. The decrease in the net tangible equity to net tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) from the first quarter of 2022 was driven by a $243.9 million decrease in tangible equity, which more than offset a $191.5 million decrease in tangible assets.

As previously announced, in December 2021 the Company’s Board of Directors (the "Board") approved a stock repurchase program authorizing the repurchase of up to 2.70 million shares of the Company’s common stock during a twelve-month period starting January 1, 2022. Such repurchases may be made at the discretion of the Company’s senior management based on market conditions and other relevant factors and will be acquired through open market or privately negotiated transactions as permitted under Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and other applicable regulatory and legal requirements. There were 250,000 shares repurchased pursuant to the 2022 stock repurchase program in the first six months of 2022, including 200,000 shares repurchased in the second quarter of 2022.

Allowance for Credit Losses and Asset Quality

At June 30, 2022, the Company’s allowance for credit losses totaled $55.5 million, or 0.68%, of total loans outstanding. This compares to $50.1 million, or 0.68%, at the end of the first quarter of 2022 and $51.8 million, or 0.71%, at June 30, 2021. Reflective of a moderate deterioration in the economic outlook, continued low levels of net charge-offs, delinquent loans and nonperforming loans, and an increase in loans outstanding, the Company recorded a $6.0 million provision for credit losses during the second quarter of 2022, including $3.9 million due to the acquisition of Elmira based on the addition of approximately $437.0 million of loans.

At June 30, 2022, nonperforming (90 or more days past due and non-accruing) loans were $37.1 million, or 0.46%, of total loans outstanding. This compares to $36.0 million, or 0.49%, of total loans outstanding at the end of the first quarter of 2022 and $70.2 million, or 0.97%, of total loans outstanding one year earlier. The decrease in nonperforming loans as compared to the prior year’s second quarter was driven by the upgrade of several large business loans primarily operating in the hospitality industry from nonaccrual status to accruing status during the fourth quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2022 whose operations were temporarily negatively impacted by the pandemic.

Total delinquent loans, which includes nonperforming loans and loans 30 or more days delinquent, to total loans outstanding was 0.75% at the end of the second quarter of 2022. This compares to 1.22% at the end of the second quarter of 2021 and 0.84% at the end of the first quarter of 2022. The decrease from one year earlier was largely driven by the previously mentioned reclassification of certain business loans’ status from nonaccrual to accruing during the fourth quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2022. Loans 30 to 89 days delinquent (categorized by the Company as delinquent but performing), which tend to exhibit seasonal characteristics, were 0.29% of total loans outstanding at June 30, 2022, down slightly from 0.35% at the end of the first quarter of 2022, but up slightly from 0.25% one year earlier. The Company recorded net charge-offs of $0.4 million, or an annualized 0.02% of average loans, in the second quarter of 2022. This compares to net recoveries of $0.6 million, or an annualized 0.03% of average loans, in the second quarter of 2021 and net charge-offs of $0.5 million, or an annualized 0.03% of average loans, in the first quarter of 2022. The Company believes that its credit-related losses have recently been below longer-term historical levels in part due to the extraordinary Federal and State Government financial assistance provided to consumers throughout the pandemic, as well as the funding support to business customers who participated in PPP lending.

Dividend Increase

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.43 per share on its common stock, up 2.4% from the $0.42 dividend declared in the second quarter of 2021, representing an annualized yield of 2.6% based upon the $65.43 closing price of the Company’s stock on July 22, 2022. On July 20, 2022, the Company announced an additional one cent increase in the quarterly dividend to $0.44 per share on its common stock, payable on October 10, 2022 to shareholders of record on September 15, 2022. This increase marked the 30th consecutive year of dividend increases for the Company.

Elmira Savings Bank

On May 16, 2022, the Company announced that it completed its merger with Elmira Savings Bank, a New York state chartered savings bank, on May 13, 2022. The Company acquired Elmira in an all cash transaction representing total consideration valued at approximately $82.2 million. The merger enhances the Company’s presence in five counties of New York’s Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions. In connection with the acquisition, the Company added eight branch locations and acquired total deposits of approximately $522.3 million and total loans of approximately $437.0 million.
