Chittenden Reports Higher Earnings; Announces Quarterly Dividend

first_imgChittenden Corporation(NYSE: CHZ) Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Paul A. Perrault,announced higher earnings for the year ended December 31, 2003, of $74.8million or $2.07 per diluted share, compared to $63.6 million or $1.96 a yearago. For the fourth quarter of 2003, net income was $0.53 per diluted share,compared to the $0.55 per diluted share earned in the fourth quarter of 2002.The prior quarter amount exceeded the current quarter primarily due to highergains on sales of securities in 2002. Chittenden also announced its quarterlydividend of $0.20 per share. The dividend will be paid on February 13, 2004,to shareholders of record on January 30, 2004.In making the announcement, Perrault said, “The past year has been a busyone at Chittenden. In addition to our primary focus of delivering top qualityservice to our customers, we completed the Granite acquisition in the firstquarter and there has been significant activity behind the scenes inpreparation for our IT conversion this coming spring. I am encouraged by ourprogress on this important project as well as with the financial results thatwe have achieved during 2003.”On February 28, 2003, Chittenden completed its acquisition of GraniteBank, a $1.1 billion commercial bank headquartered in Keene, NH for $123million in cash and approximately 4.4 million shares of Chittenden stockvalued at $116 million. Accordingly, Granite Bank’s operations are reflectedin Chittenden’s consolidated financial statements from the date ofacquisition.Total loans increased $43 million from September 30, 2003 and $751 millionfrom December 31, 2002. The increase from a year ago was primarilyattributable to the acquisition of Granite, which contributed approximately$626 million of total loans at the date of acquisition. The increase fromlast quarter was due to continued growth in the Company’s commercial andcommercial real estate loan portfolios. The Company experienced its normalseasonal decline in municipal loans and a continued reduction in residentialreal estate and consumer loans due to higher than normal prepayment speeds onthese portfolios.Total deposits increased $844 million from a year ago and declined $48million from last quarter. The increase from a year ago was primarily aresult of the Granite acquisition, which contributed $783 million in depositsat the date of acquisition. The decrease from last quarter is primarilyrelated to the seasonal drop in municipal and captive insurance deposits,which was partially offset by an increase in demand deposits. Borrowingsdeclined from last quarter due to the early redemption of $77 million of FHLBadvances, which had an effective rate of 3.50%.The Company’s net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 2003 was4.14%, compared with 3.98% for the third quarter of 2003 and 4.38% for thesame period of 2002. The increase on a linked quarter basis is primarilyrelated to the recognition of additional accelerated fair value adjustments of$1.7 million in the third quarter which were driven by heavy prepayments onGranite’s residential mortgages. Excluding the effect of the accelerated fairvalue adjustment, the net interest margin was 4.11% in the third quarter of2003. The net interest margin for the year ended December 31, 2003 was 4.12%as compared to 4.53% for 2002. The decrease from 2002 is a result of theGranite acquisition and the overall reduction in market interest rates. On apro forma basis the net interest margin without Granite for the fourth quarterof 2003 was 4.21% and for 2003 was 4.33%.Net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans were 8 basis points inthe fourth quarter and 16 basis points for the year ended December 31, 2003,compared to 7 basis points and 28 basis points for the respective periods in2002. Net charge-off activity on a year-to-date basis totaled $5.8 millioncompared with $8.4 million in 2002. Nonperforming assets decreased $3.6million from September 30, 2003 to $14.4 million at December 31, 2003 and as apercentage of total loans declined to 39 basis points compared to 49 basispoints in the third quarter and 50 basis points at year end 2002. As apercentage of loans, the allowance for loan losses was 1.54%, down from 1.61%at September 30, 2003 and 1.62% at December 31, 2002.The provision for loan losses was $7.2 million in 2003 compared to $8.3million in 2002. For the fourth quarter, the provision was $1.0 million in2003 compared to $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2003 and $2.3 millionfor the fourth quarter of 2002. The lower provision in the fourth quarter of2003 was primarily due to the reduction in the annual level of net charges-offs as well as continued improvement in the Company’s overall credit qualityand the general economic environment.Noninterest income was $23.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2003,compared with $25.0 million for the third quarter and $19.6 million for thesame period a year ago. The decline from the third quarter was primarilyattributable to lower gains on sales of mortgage loans and mortgage servicingincome. The increase in market interest rates during the second half of 2003significantly slowed mortgage originations and resulted in lower volumes ofmortgage loans sold. Mortgage-servicing income declined in the fourth quarterprimarily due to lower impairment recoveries of $1.8 million, which waspartially offset by lower MSR amortization. The increase in other noninterestincome of $757,000 on a linked quarter basis was attributable to gains onsales of real estate related to branch locations being consolidated. Inaddition, gains on the sales of securities of $3.0 million were offset byprepayment penalties on the redemption of FHLB borrowings of $916,000 and $2.2million in conversion and restructuring charges, which were reported as partof noninterest expense.Noninterest expenses were $48.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2003,compared to $46.9 million for the third quarter and $39.9 million for thefourth quarter of 2002. Conversion and restructuring charges of $2.2 millionwere recognized in the fourth quarter of 2003. These were comprised of$378,000 in additional technology expenses related to the Company’s secondquarter announcement that it would convert its core data processing systemsand $1.8 million of restructuring charges. The restructuring charges wereassociated with the Company’s plan to consolidate 11 branches and close 30offsite ATMs, as well as to recognize severance for related staff reductions.Salaries and employee benefits decreased $1.2 million from the third quarterof 2003 and increased $4.7 million from the fourth quarter of 2002. Graniterepresented $3.4 million of the increase from a year ago, while highercommissions and sales based incentive expenses accounted for $1.3 million.Other increases driven by the Granite acquisition were noted in occupancyexpense ($470,000) and amortization of intangibles ($407,000) related to theGranite core deposit and customer list intangibles.Effective income tax rates for 2003 were 34.8% for the fourth quarter and35.8% year to date compared to 35.4% and 34.9% for the respective periods in2002. The lower effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2003 was a resultof the recovery of prior year tax reserves that were no longer necessary. Theincrease year over year was primarily attributable to the Granite acquisition.The return on average equity was 13.90% for 2003, compared with 16.12% for2002. The decline from a year ago is primarily due to the issuance ofadditional equity of $116 million in the Granite acquisition. The return onaverage assets for 2003 was 1.29%, compared with 1.40% for 2002. The ROE andROA without Granite for 2003 would have been 15.32% and 1.38% respectively.last_img read more

Anthony Davis remains in trade limbo; Harrison Barnes to Sacramento

The Mavs and Kings agreed to swap Barnes for Zach Randolph and Justin Jackson, and as the day was winding down the Wizards struck again — this time sending Markieff Morris to New Orleans for Wesley Johnson.The Mavs-Kings and Wizards-Pelicans deals were confirmed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity by people directly involved in the negotiations, all speaking on condition of anonymity pending the mandatory NBA trade calls to make the deals official. In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ MOST READ Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college “I mean, obviously, it’s on everyone’s mind,” Gentry said. “But we just try to put it on the back burner and focus on the task at hand and that’s playing the Chicago Bulls. Not anything we can do about it. … I think everything kind of clears up after (Thursday), at least for a while. And you can go back to I guess normal, or whatever our new normal is going to be.”In other trades Wednesday:— A person familiar with the terms said NBA-leading Milwaukee was sending center Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons for forward Stanley Johnson. Both were lottery picks, Johnson in 2015 and Maker a year later. That trade was also pending the NBA reviewing the financial terms and approving, which is required for any deal to become final.— The Los Angeles Lakers — one of the teams known to want Davis — made another deal, getting Reggie Bullock from the Detroit Pistons for rookie guard Svi Mykhailiuk. Bullock is a shooter, and Lakers star LeBron James loves surrounding himself with those. Bullock is making nearly 39 percent of his 3-point tries this season. Mykhailiuk has averaged 3.3 points in 39 appearances.— Philadelphia swung a deal with Toronto, getting Malachi Richardson and some draft considerations for cash. Richardson appeared in 23 games during two seasons with the Raptors.— Two people with knowledge of the deal say Houston, Sacramento and Cleveland are finishing a trade that will most notably send Iman Shumpert from the Kings to the Rockets. Houston is sending Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss to the Cavaliers. Alec Burks — now traded for the second time this season, after starting the year in Utah — will go from the Cavaliers to the Kings, when the league signs off on the necessary matters.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott went to the 76ers, while Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala and Landry Shamet went to the Clippers. Philadelphia — with an eye on moving way up from the No. 5 spot in the Eastern Conference — also gave up a protected 2020 first-round pick, a 2021 first-rounder that was once owned by Miami, and second-rounders in 2021 and 2023 through Detroit.“We are in the unique position to contend now and we think this trade positions us well for the postseason,” 76ers general manager Elton Brand said.Porter will be headed to Chicago, with the Wizards taking back Parker and Portis. Parker has been bracing for a trade, and moving Porter is a financial win if nothing else for Washington. So is the move that sends Morris to the Pelicans, one that should get the Wizards out of having to pay anything in luxury tax this season.Another deal with tax ramifications was worked out between Miami and Phoenix. The Heat sent Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington to the Suns for Ryan Anderson, helping alleviate the logjam of guards that Miami coach Erik Spoelstra has been dealing with all season — plus considerably lowering the Heat’s expected luxury tax bill. It’s likely that Ellington will be a buyout candidate, and therefore would be able to pick his own spot to finish the season.“This business is tough but this kid is tougher,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade wrote on Twitter, talking about Johnson. And later, he told Ellington he has “a brother for life.”Meanwhile, Davis remained in place and out of uniform.The Pelicans haven’t played him since he and agent Rich Paul went public last week with their trade request, and decided not to play the six-time All-Star in Chicago on Wednesday either. The reasons for that were obvious; in case a deal can be made, it’s not worth it for the Pelicans to risk an injury.“It’s going to eventually get resolved,” Gentry said.There will be resolution — maybe just partial resolution, but resolution nonetheless — when the deadline arrives Thursday afternoon. Davis is still under contract for next season, so the Pelicans are in a slippery spot where they don’t need to deal their best player now for fear of losing him in July for nothing but also know that he doesn’t want to remain in New Orleans.If the Pelicans don’t trade Davis by Thursday, they’ll almost certainly be back in the depths of trade talks in June and July — draft time and free agency. “Part of the business,” New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said.And business, on Wednesday, was busy — as expected.The Dallas-Sacramento deal will be significant for both sides.The Kings are trying to get into the Western Conference playoffs, and now can add Barnes to their promising young core. Barnes has a $25.1 million player option for next season. Meanwhile, Dallas — which got Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. from New York last week in a massive deal — will have tons of salary-cap space to spend in the coming months as it looks to add more pieces around Luka Doncic.“Things are going to look different on the court,” said Carlisle, who wished Barnes well and told him after Dallas’ game that he believes the Sacramento deal is a good situation for him.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
