STURGIS, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- Sturgis Bancorp, Inc. (OTCBB: STBI) announced a net income of $1.9 million for 2012, and net income of $345,000 for the fourth quarter of 2012, Eric L. Eishen, President and CEO, announced today.

Sturgis Bancorp is the holding company for Sturgis Bank & Trust Company (Bank), and its subsidiaries Oakleaf Financial Services, Inc. and Oak Mortgage, LLC. Sturgis Bancorp provides a full array of trust, commercial and consumer banking services from 11 banking centers in Sturgis, Bronson, Centreville, Climax, Colon, South Haven, Three Rivers and White Pigeon, Mich. Oakleaf Financial Services offers a complete range of investment and financial-advisory services. Oak Mortgage offers residential mortgages in all markets of the Bank.

Key Highlights for 2012:

  • Net income for 2012 increased to $1.9 million, or $0.92 per share, compared to net income of $501,000, or $0.25 per share, in 2011.
  • The Bank further increased capital ratios, exceeding "well-capitalized" requirements and ending 2012 with Tier 1 capital at 8.82% and 12.48% of average assets and risk-weighted assets, respectively. Total capital at December 31, 2012 was 13.75% of risk-weighted assets.
  • Net interest income decreased $137,000.
  • Provision for loan losses decreased by $1.1 million to $545,000.
  • Realized gain on sale of securities was $0, compared to $536,000 in 2011.
  • Total deposits increased 0.1% to $235.0 million, including $7.3 million decrease in interest-bearing deposits.
  • Brokered certificates of deposit and other jumbo certificates decreased by $1.6 million and $3.4 million, respectively.
  • Loans charged off, net of recoveries, decreased to $1.3 million in 2012 from $2.4 million in 2011. The allowance for loan losses decreased to 2.02% of loans from 2.28% at the end of 2011.

Nonaccrual loans decreased to $7.2 million, or 2.83% of gross loans on December 31, 2012. Nonaccrual loans peaked in June 2011 at $14.5 million, and were reduced to $10.5 million at December 31, 2011.

President and CEO Eishen stated: "I am pleased to announce earnings for 2012. They are up significantly from the last few years and are returning to more normal levels. Credit quality is improving and the interest margin is stable. Mortgage banking activity has been a strong part of the Bank's historical earnings streams. Sturgis Bank & Trust Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary Oak Mortgage continue to dominate our home market in St. Joseph County Michigan. Since the Bank retains 100% of the mortgage servicing, we are building additional relationships while maintaining existing relationships in our market. This provides the opportunity to provide other financial services to our customers. Another wholly-owned subsidiary had a very successful year as well. Oakleaf Financial Services returned to more normal earnings levels, partially due to the positive performance of the stock market. Many of the accounts managed are fee based relationships and this provides a much more stable income stream to the Bank. The Bank has also continued to decrease its reliance on non-core funding sources, with consistent growth of core deposits. All of these factors have made your Bank more valuable at the end of 2012."

Year 2012 vs. 2011 - Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased to $1.9 million, or $0.92 per share from net income of $501,000, or $0.25 per share, for 2011. Net interest income decreased 1.4% to $9.6 million, from $9.8 million for 2011. The decrease in net interest income is primarily due to the decrease in average earning assets to $276.4 million in 2012 from $307.0 million in 2011. The tax equivalent net interest margin increased to 3.52% in 2012 from 3.22% in 2011. The decrease in assets was used to fund planned reductions in deposit liabilities and borrowings, especially in the second half of 2011.

Noninterest income was $4.7 million for 2012, compared to $4.5 million for 2011. The Company realized no gains on sales of available-for-sale securities in 2012, compared to $536,000 in 2011. Mortgage banking activities increased $460,000 to $1.2 million, as proceeds from loan sales increased to $47.6 million from $24.4 million in 2011. Commission income from Oakleaf Financial Services, a Bank-owned subsidiary, increased $359,000 to $1.5 million in 2012.

Noninterest expense decreased $947,000 for 2012, compared to 2011. The largest component of noninterest expense is salaries and employee benefits, which decreased $406,000, or 6.1%, to $6.3 million in 2012. Real estate owned expense also decreased $259,000 to $745,000. The early extinguishment of repurchase agreements incurred a one-time prepayment penalty of $195,000 in 2011.

The Company provided $545,000 to the allowance for loan losses in 2012, compared to $1.6 million in 2011. Net charge-offs were $1.3 million in 2012, compared to $2.4 million in 2011. The net activity in the ALLL decreased the total allowance to 2.02% of gross loans at December 31, 2012, compared to 2.28% of gross loans at December 31, 2011.

Total assets increased to $317.0 million at December 31, 2012 from $314.3 million at December 31, 2011, primarily in interest-earning deposits in banks. Loans decreased $3.5 million from 2011. Closed-end residential mortgage loans increased, while net decreases were realized in home equity lines of credit, commercial and construction loans.

Noninterest-bearing deposits increased to $41.3 million at December 31, 2012 from $33.6 million at December 31, 2011. Interest-bearing deposits decreased to $193.7 million at December 31, 2012 from $201.0 million at December 31, 2011. The decrease in interest-bearing deposits includes $1.6 million in brokered deposits and $3.4 million in non-brokered certificates of deposit with balances of $100,000 and greater. Despite the decrease in balances, the number of checking accounts increased throughout 2012, as the Bank continues to expand its customer base.

The Company paid no cash dividends in 2012, compared to $0.03 per common share, totaling $60,000, in 2011. Total equity was $26.9 million at December 31, 2012, compared to $24.9 million at December 31, 2011. Book value per share increased to $13.21 at December 31, 2012 from $12.34 at December 31, 2011.

Mr. Eishen added, "The question on cash dividend is occasionally raised with me and I am asked when the Bancorp may return to paying a cash dividend. As a reminder to past shareholders, the Company has paid special dividends during very good performance years and has also redeemed approximately 1,100,000 shares over the past several years. These actions have been beneficial to the long-term value of your Bancorp Stock, and have also resulted in the distribution of equity. My answer to anyone asking this question is that I will recommend cash dividends once the expectations of our Regulatory examiners is clear. It was a surprise to the industry when Basel III was to be applied to even the smallest banks in our Nation. This is an international capital standard and it is my understanding that it would only be applied to internationally significant banks. I was not alone in this expectation. In addition to this, it is apparent that the Regulators are interested in having capital levels that far exceed 'well capitalized' under the regulatory framework for corrective action. The bottom line is that the banking industry does not have a clear definition of what is expected. There have been suggestions that Tier One Capital should be at least 10.0%. Without the repurchase of shares, our Bank would be significantly above this level. We have operated the Bank under the premise that capital is scarce and must be properly managed. In years we did not see reasonable growth potential and could not leverage excess equity safely, we repurchased shares with the intention of returning excess equity to investors. There are many banks that did not follow that business model and they no longer exist. They leveraged capital by aggressively lending in areas they did not fully understand. Bank investors can easily identify these banks and, in hindsight, can see the error they made. While we have not been unscathed by the crisis, we have made it through the most difficult economic times witnessed in recent memory and remained profitable through most of the crisis."

During the worst part of the national financial crisis, the Company began including expanded ratios for the Bank's asset quality in quarterly press releases. Because the Company believes these ratios remain meaningful and relevant to investors, the Company has elected to continue providing them.

Fourth Quarter of 2012 vs. 2011 - Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 decreased to $345,000, or $0.17 per share, from $560,000, or $0.28 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. The primary component of the decrease is higher provision for loan losses.

Net interest income decreased $23,000, with both quarters rounded at $2.4 million. The decrease is primarily due to reductions in average interest-earning assets. The tax-equivalent net interest margin decreased to 3.48% in 2012 from 3.49% in the last quarter of 2011.

Noninterest income was $1.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $957,000 for the fourth quarter of 2011. The largest component of this increase was mortgage banking income, which increased $222,000 to $369,000. Commissions from Oakleaf Financial Services also increased $140,000 to $415,000.

Noninterest expense increased $103,000, or 3.7%, primarily due to $81,000 increase in real estate owned expenses.

Net charge-offs for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $827,000, compared to $404,000 a year ago. The Company provided $491,000 for loan losses in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to ($91,000) in the fourth quarter of 2011.

@ThingsExpo Stories
Connected devices and the industrial internet are growing exponentially every year with Cisco expecting 50 billion devices to be in operation by 2020. In this period of growth, location-based insights are becoming invaluable to many businesses as they adopt new connected technologies. Knowing when and where these devices connect from is critical for a number of scenarios in supply chain management, disaster management, emergency response, M2M, location marketing and more. In his session at @Th...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
"There's a growing demand from users for things to be faster. When you think about all the transactions or interactions users will have with your product and everything that is between those transactions and interactions - what drives us at Catchpoint Systems is the idea to measure that and to analyze it," explained Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York Ci...
Apixio Inc. has raised $19.3 million in Series D venture capital funding led by SSM Partners with participation from First Analysis, Bain Capital Ventures and Apixio’s largest angel investor. Apixio will dedicate the proceeds toward advancing and scaling products powered by its cognitive computing platform, further enabling insights for optimal patient care. The Series D funding comes as Apixio experiences strong momentum and increasing demand for its HCC Profiler solution, which mines unstruc...
SYS-CON Events has announced today that Roger Strukhoff has been named conference chair of Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo 2016 Silicon Valley. The 19th Cloud Expo and 6th @ThingsExpo will take place on November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. "The Internet of Things brings trillions of dollars of opportunity to developers and enterprise IT, no matter how you measure it," stated Roger Strukhoff. "More importantly, it leverages the power of devices and the Interne...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to imp...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
The IoT is changing the way enterprises conduct business. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how businesses can gain an edge over competitors by empowering consumers to take control through IoT. He cited examples such as a Washington, D.C.-based sports club that leveraged IoT and the cloud to develop a comprehensive booking system. He also highlighted how IoT can revitalize and restore outdated business models, making them profitable ...
IoT offers a value of almost $4 trillion to the manufacturing industry through platforms that can improve margins, optimize operations & drive high performance work teams. By using IoT technologies as a foundation, manufacturing customers are integrating worker safety with manufacturing systems, driving deep collaboration and utilizing analytics to exponentially increased per-unit margins. However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often ...
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source tec...
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
