FPB Financial Corp. Announces 2014 First Quarter Results and Declares Dividends

HAMMOND, LA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- FPB Financial Corp. (OTCQB: FPBF), the holding company for Florida Parishes Bank, announced financial results for the 2014 first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Earnings

Net income for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $466,000, a decrease of 13.7% from $539,000 in the first quarter of 2013. Net income in the 2013 fourth quarter totaled $468,000. 2014 Net income per fully diluted common share was $0.39, down from $0.51 per fully diluted common share in the first quarter of 2013. The 2013 results have been adjusted for a 3 for 1 stock split of our common shares completed on September 27, 2013. Earnings per share decreased 23.5% primarily due to a 15.5% increase in total non-interest expense and due to our completion of the sale of 129,075 shares of our common stock on October 11, 2013 in a private placement. Return on common stockholders' equity (ROE) was 9.0% on an annualized basis for the 2014 first quarter period.

Total non-interest expense increased by $294,000 in 2014 when compared to the 2013 period, primarily due to a $171,000 increase in compensation and employee benefits, primarily related to the hiring of new officers and staff for our recently opened branch office located in Covington, LA.

Although mortgage banking revenue declined by 52.9% to $88,000 in the first quarter, total non-interest income increased in the period primarily due to a net gain of $43,000 on sale of foreclosed assets and investments. Gain on bank owned life insurance totaled $36,000 in the period compared to $-0- in 2013.

Net interest income was unchanged at $2.2 million in the 2014 first quarter when compared to the first quarter of 2013 and down $20,000 from the 2013 fourth quarter.

First quarter earnings were positively affected by a $126,000 decrease in provision for loan losses when compared to the 2013 period.

The Company's effective income tax rate in the 2014 first quarter decreased to 29.2% compared to 33.6% in the 2013 period, primarily due to increased investment in municipal securities and due to the purchase of Bank Owned Life Insurance (BOLI).

Asset Quality

Total non-performing assets at March 31, 2014 decreased $1.0 million, or 35.0% to $1.9 million when compared to March 31, 2013. Total non-performing assets on December 31, 2013 were $1.8 million. The Company's allowance for loan losses decreased to $2.9 million when compared to $3.3 million at March 31, 2013. Total allowance for loan losses were $3.0 million at December 31, 2013. The March 31, 2014 allowance for loan losses represents 150.0% of non-performing assets and 2.4% of average period net loans.

Net loan charge-offs for the first quarter totaled $152,000 or 0.52% (on an annualized basis) of net loans up from $28,000 or 0.10% of net loans in the 2013 first quarter. In the 2013 fourth quarter the company's net loan charge-offs were $207,000 or 0.72% of net loans.

Performing Troubled Debt Restructured (TDRs) as of March 31 totaled $2.8 million, or a decrease of $260,000 from March 31, 2013. Performing TDRs increased by $222,000 when compared to December 31, 2013.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Total assets at March 31, 2014 increased to $208.8 million, or 5.5% as compared to $197.9 million on March 31, 2013. Total assets on December 31, 2013 were $205.9 million. The increase in total assets was primarily attributed to an increase of $10.0 million in available-for-sale investment securities, an increase of $4.2 million in net loans and the purchase of $4.0 million of Bank Owned Life Insurance (BOLI) in the 2013 third quarter. These increases were offset by a $5.3 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents, a decrease of $4.2 million in certificates of deposit and a $594,000 decrease in foreclosed assets. Total liabilities increased by 4.4% to $187.7 million primarily due to an increase of $5.4 million in total deposits to $167.4 million from $162.0 million at March 31, 2013 and an increase of 17.6% or $2.4 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances to $16.2 million at March 31, 2014. Non interest bearing deposits and total non-maturity deposits both increased in the twelve month period ending March 31, 2014.

Common Stockholders' equity increased by a net of $3.0 million, or 16.7% to $21.1 million for the twelve month period ending March 31, 2014, primarily due to the October 11, 2013 sale of 129,075 shares of our common stock at a price of $16.00 per share in a private placement for the total net sale proceeds of $2.0 million. Retained earnings increased by $1.6 million in the twelve month period. Other comprehensive income decreased by $651,000 at March 31, 2014 when compared to March 31, 2013.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in Action and founder...
The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right.

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.
