In the second quarter, the financial effects of the COVID-19 related stimulus and government support began to wane and Net Revenue and Net Income, which had been somewhat inflated by the bank’s participation in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), returned to more normal levels. As a result, AB&T experienced a decline in Net Revenue and Net Income for 2Q21 of 4.1% and 15.7%, respectively, when compared to 2Q20. The decline was directly tied to the decline in production and acceleration of repayment of previously originated PPP loans. For the year-to-date, Net Revenue and Net Income increased 1.1% and 11.3%, respectively, when compared to the first half of 2020.
With the repayment of PPP loans, Average Loans experienced a 6.0% decline in 2Q21 when compared to 2Q20, but an increase of 0.8% for the first half of 2021 compared to 2020.
Average Deposits were 21.1% higher in 2Q21 compared to 2Q20 and 31.0% higher for the first half of 2021 compared to 2020. Average Non-Interest-bearing Deposits continued to show strong growth increasing 20.5% for 2Q21 compared to 2Q20 and 35.2% for the first half of 2021 compared to 2020.
The Bank’s asset quality also remained strong with Non-performing Assets as a Percent of Total Assets standing at only 0.05% at quarter-end. The Bank’s Allowance for Losses on Loans and Leases as a Percent of Total Loans at quarter-end was 1.59% of Total Loans including PPP loans. Net charge-offs for 2Q21 were 0.0%.
Due to the uncertainty of how economic conditions would unfold as we navigated the pandemic, the decision was made to retain bank earnings through 2Q21. As a result, Average Stockholders’ Equity increased 12.6% in 2Q21 compared to 2Q20 and 18.5% for the first half of 2021 compared to 2020. Even though the Bank’s Leverage Ratio was down from 8.29% at the end of June 2020 to 8.07% at the end of June 2021, the Common Equity Tier 1 Capital Ratio and the Total Capital Ratio improved to 12.42% and 13.67%, respectively.
For the quarter ending June 30, 2021, the Bank reported Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.34 and $0.80 for the 2nd quarter and year-to-date, respectively. Fully Diluted Book Value per share at quarter-end was $15.12.
As Georgia, the United States and the world continue to emerge from the pandemic, the good news for AB&T is that we have stable and low-cost deposits to fund future loan growth and we are poised to continue to support our clients and community in the post-pandemic economy. We foresee a bright future for our community and our Bank.
