Company Release - 1/23/2019 8:00 AM ET

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cambridge Bancorp (NASDAQ: CATC) (the “Company”), the parent of Cambridge Trust Company (“Cambridge Trust”), today announced net income of $23,881,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing an increase of $9,065,000, or 61.2%, compared to net income of $14,816,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017. Income before income taxes was $31,088,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing an increase of $2,914,000, or 10.3%, compared to $28,174,000 for the same period of last year. Diluted earnings per share were $5.77 for 2018, representing a 59.8% increase over diluted earnings per share of $3.61 for 2017. Earnings in 2017 were impacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which is discussed in more detail below.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, net income was $5,306,000, representing an increase of $4,342,000, as compared to net income of $964,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. Income before income taxes was $6,891,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, representing a decrease of $444,000, or 6.1%, compared to $7,335,000 for the same quarter of last year. Diluted earnings per share were $1.28 for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing an increase of $1.05 over diluted earnings per share of $0.23 for the fourth quarter of 2017.

In the fourth quarter of 2018, Cambridge Bancorp, Cambridge Trust, and Optima Bank & Trust Company (“Optima”) entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Optima will merge with and into Cambridge Trust in a stock and cash transaction. The transaction is anticipated to close during the second quarter of 2019 and will enhance and expand the Company’s southern New Hampshire presence. Excluding merger and acquisition expenses incurred related to the pending Optima merger, net income would have been $24,026,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018 and $5,451,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. Net income excluding the impact of merger expenses in 2018 and adjusted for the change in tax law in 2017 increased by $5,341,000, or 28.6%, for the year ended December 31, 2018 and $618,000, or 12.8%, for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

As previously reported, earnings in 2017 were impacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Effective in 2018, the change in tax law reduced the Company’s federal tax rate from 35% to 21%. The change in tax law required a one-time non-cash write-down of our net deferred tax assets of $3,869,000 in 2017 as these deferred tax assets were required to be re-measured using the new lower tax rate in 2017. Removing the impact of the charge for the change in tax law, net income would have been $18,685,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017 and $4,833,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. Diluted earnings per share would have been $4.55 for the year ended December 31, 2017 and $1.17 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017.

2018 Highlights as Compared to 2017:

  • Revenue of $96.6 million, an increase of 10.0%
  • Total Assets of $2.1 billion, an increase of $151.5 million, or 7.8%
  • Loan growth of $208.9 million, or 15.5%
  • Core deposit growth of $74.4 million, or 4.6%

“We are pleased to report that the Company had a strong year of growth in 2018 as we exceeded $2 billion in assets,” noted Denis K. Sheahan, Chairman and CEO. “Cambridge Bancorp additionally posted record earnings for the year, with profitability metrics remaining strong producing a return on average assets of 1.21% and return on average shareholders’ equity of 15.35%. Our performance was driven by a continued positive trend in loan growth, which has increased $208.9 million, or 15.5%, from year end 2017, and the ability to maintain our net interest margin in a challenging rising interest rate cycle.”

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased $151.5 million, or 7.8%, from December 31, 2017 and were $2.1 billion as of December 31, 2018.

Total loans increased $208.9 million, or 15.5%, from December 31, 2017 and stood at $1.6 billion as of December 31, 2018.

Short-term borrowings increased from $0 at December 31, 2017 to $90.0 million at December 31, 2018, as the Company funded strong loan growth during the year.

Net Interest and Dividend Income

For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, net interest and dividend income after provision for loan losses increased by $923,000, or 6.2%, to $15.7 million, as compared to $14.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. Interest on loans increased by $2.3 million, or 17.5%, which was driven by a combination of the impact of rising rates on our loan portfolio and net loan growth. Provision for loan losses expense increased $713,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 as the Company experienced strong loan growth during the period. The Company’s net interest margin, on a fully taxable equivalent basis, increased six basis points to 3.32% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, as compared to 3.26% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, net interest and dividend income after provision for loan losses increased by $4.8 million, or 8.5%, to $62.1 million, as compared to $57.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. Interest on loans increased by $6.6 million, or 12.7%, which was driven by a combination of the impact of rising rates on our loan portfolio and net loan growth. Provision for loan losses expense increased $1.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 as the Company experienced strong loan growth during the period. The Company’s net interest margin, on a fully taxable equivalent basis, increased eight basis points to 3.33% for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to 3.25% for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Noninterest Income

Total noninterest income increased by $463,000, or 6.1%, to $8.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, as compared to $7.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, primarily as a result of higher loan related derivative income associated with the Company’s interest rate risk strategy and higher Wealth Management revenue. Noninterest income was 32.9% of total revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. Loan related derivative income increased $298,000 for the fourth quarter of 2018, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, due to the volume of loan related derivative transactions executed in the fourth quarter of 2018. Wealth Management revenue increased by $195,000, or 3.3%, for the fourth quarter of 2018, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, due to higher average assets under management. Wealth Management Assets under Management and Administration decreased by $209.0 million, or 6.8%, to $2.9 billion as of December 31, 2018, as compared to $3.1 billion as of December 31, 2017, primarily as a result of net asset outflows combined with reductions in the equity markets during the year.

Total noninterest income increased by $2.8 million, or 9.1%, to $33.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to $30.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, primarily as a result of higher Wealth Management revenue and higher loan related derivative income. Noninterest income was 34.2% of total revenue for year ended December 31, 2018. Wealth Management revenue increased by $2.2 million, or 9.4%, for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to the year ended December 31, 2017, due to higher average assets under management during the period. Loan related derivative income increased $871,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to the year ended December 31, 2017, due to the volume of loan related derivative transactions executed in 2018.

Noninterest income increases were partially offset by lower gains on loans held for sale of $256,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to the year ended December 31, 2017.

Noninterest Expense

Total noninterest expense increased by $1.8 million, or 12.2%, to $16.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, as compared to $15.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, primarily driven by higher salaries and benefits expense, marketing expense, data processing expense, and merger expenses. The increase in salaries and benefits of $942,000 was driven by the combination of increased staffing to support business initiatives, higher employee benefit costs including performance based equity compensation, and the current year adoption of accounting guidance (“ASU 2017-07”) for net periodic pension costs and net periodic postretirement benefit costs. The 2018 adoption of ASU 2017-07 required that non-service related pension expense and income items no longer be included in salaries and employee benefits in the Company’s income statement. The non-service related pension expense and income items are instead included in other expenses. Previously reported salaries and employee benefits and other expenses have been restated to reflect the retrospective adoption. The retrospective application for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 was a decrease in salaries and employee benefits and an increase in other expenses of approximately $68,000. The increase of $338,000 in marketing expense was due to the increased focus of growing brand awareness within our markets. The increase of $203,000 in data processing expense was due to investments made in technology. The merger expenses of $201,000 were professional services related to the pending acquisition of Optima.

Total noninterest expense increased by $4.7 million, or 7.9%, to $64.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to $59.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, primarily driven by increased salaries and employee benefits expense, marketing expense, data processing expense, and merger expenses. The increase in salaries and benefits expense of $4.8 million was driven by the combination of increased staffing to support business initiatives, higher employee benefit costs including performance based equity compensation, and the adoption of ASU 2017-07. The retrospective application for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017 was a decrease in salaries and employee benefits and an increase in other expenses of approximately $252,000. The increase of $609,000 in marketing was due to costs related to Cambridge Trust’s rebranding efforts, which included the development of a new brand, website, and advertising campaign. The increase of $221,000 in data processing expense was due to investments made in technology. The merger expenses of $201,000 were professional services related to the pending acquisition of Optima.

Noninterest expense increases were partially offset by lower other expenses of $880,000 resulting from the adoption of ASU 2017-07 as discussed above for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, as compared to the twelve months ended December 31, 2017.

Asset Quality

Loan quality remained sound with non-performing loans totaling $642,000, or 0.04% of total loans outstanding as of December 31, 2018. The allowance for loan losses was $16.8 million, or 1.08% of total loans outstanding at December 31, 2018, compared to $15.3 million, or 1.13% of total loans outstanding at year end 2017. Net loan charge offs remained low at $53,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to $303,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Income Taxes

In accordance with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the Company’s federal statutory corporate tax rate decreased from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018. The effective tax rate was 23.0% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, as compared to 86.9% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. For the year ended December 31, 2018, the effective tax rate was 23.2%, as compared to 47.4% for the year ended December 31, 2017. Removing the impact of the charge for the change in tax law, the effective tax rate would have been 34.1% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and 33.7% for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Dividend & Capital

On January 22, 2019, the Company’s Board of Directors declared an increased quarterly cash dividend of $0.51 per share, which is payable on February 21, 2019 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 7, 2019. This represents an increase of $0.01 as compared to the $0.50 dividend paid in the prior quarter.

The Company’s total shareholders’ equity to total assets ratio increased by 36 basis points to 7.95% as of December 31, 2018, as compared to 7.59% as of December 31, 2017. Book value per share grew by $4.43, or 12.2%, to $40.67 as of December 31, 2018, as compared to $36.24 as of December 31, 2017.
