JUNIATA VALLEY FINANCIAL CORP. AND SUBSIDIARY

 

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

 

1. Basis of Presentation and Accounting Policies

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Juniata Valley Financial Corp. (the “Company”) and its wholly owned subsidiary, The Juniata Valley Bank (the “Bank” or “JVB”). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) for complete consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months period ended June 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the year ending December 31, 2017. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in Juniata Valley Financial Corp.’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.

 

The Company has evaluated events and transactions occurring subsequent to the consolidated statement of financial condition date of June 30, 2017 for items that should potentially be recognized or disclosed in these consolidated financial statements. The evaluation was conducted through the date these consolidated financial statements were issued.

 

2. Recent Accounting Standards Updates (ASU)

 

Accounting Standards Update 2017-09, Scope of Modification Accounting

 

Issued: May 2017

 

Summary: ASU 2017-09 clarifies Topic 718 such that an entity must apply modification accounting to changes in the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award unless all of the following criteria are met:

 

1.The fair value of the modified award is the same as the fair value of the original award immediately before the modification. The standard indicates that if the modification does not affect any of the inputs to the valuation technique used to value the award, the entity is not required to estimate the value immediately before and after the modification.
2.The vesting conditions of the modified award are the same as the vesting conditions of the original award immediately before the modification.
3.The classification of the modified award as an equity instrument or a liability instrument is the same as the classification of the original award immediately before the modification.

 

Effective Date: The amendments are effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those years. This Update will have no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2017-08, Premium Amortization on Purchased Callable Debt Securities

 

Issued: March 2017

 

Summary: ASU 2017-08 shortens the amortization period for premiums on purchased callable debt securities to the earliest call date, rather than amortizing over the full contractual term. The ASU does not change the accounting for securities held at a discount.

Effective Date: The amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. This Update will have no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2017-07, Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost

 

Issued: March 2017

 

Summary: ASU 2017-07 requires that an employer disaggregate the service cost component from the other components of net benefit cost.

 

Effective Date: The amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. This Update will have no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2017-04, Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment

 

Issued: January 2017

 

Summary: ASU 2017-04 eliminates Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test.

 

Effective Date: The amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. This Update will have no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2016-15, Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments

 

Issued: August 2016

 

Summary: ASU 2016-15 clarifies how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. The amendments are intended to reduce diversity in practice.

 

Effective Date: The amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017. This Update will have no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments

 

Issued: June 2016

 

Summary: ASU 2016-13 requires credit losses on most financial assets to be measured at amortized cost and certain other instruments to be measured using an expected credit loss model (referred to as the current expected credit loss (CECL) model). Under this model, entities will estimate credit losses over the entire contractual term of the instrument (considering estimated prepayments, but not expected extensions or modifications unless reasonable expectation of a troubled debt restructuring exists) from the date of initial recognition of that instrument.

 

The ASU also replaces the current accounting model for purchased credit impaired loans and debt securities. The allowance for credit losses for purchased financial assets with a more-than insignificant amount of credit deterioration since origination (“PCD assets”), should be determined in a similar manner to other financial assets measured on an amortized cost basis. However, upon initial recognition, the allowance for credit losses is added to the purchase price (“gross up approach”) to determine the initial amortized cost basis. The subsequent accounting for PCD financial assets is the same expected loss model described above.

 

Further, the ASU made certain targeted amendments to the existing impairment model for available-for-sale (AFS) debt securities. For an AFS debt security for which there is neither the intent nor a more-likely-than-not requirement to sell, an entity will record credit losses as an allowance rather than a write-down of the amortized cost basis.

Effective Date: The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. While the Company’s senior management is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the amended guidance on its consolidated financial statements, it currently expects the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) to increase upon adoption given that the allowance will be required to cover the full remaining expected life of the portfolio, rather than the incurred loss model under current U.S. GAAP. The extent of this increase is still being evaluated and will depend on economic conditions and the composition of the Company’s loan portfolio at the time of adoption. In preparation, the Company has partnered with a software provider specializing in ALLL analysis and is assessing the sufficiency of data currently available through its core database.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases

 

Issued: February 2016

 

Summary: The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement.

 

Effective Date: The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company has determined that the provisions of ASU 2016-02 will result in an increase in assets to recognize the present value of the lease obligations with a corresponding increase in liabilities; however, the Company does not expect this new standard to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows, as the Company has only operating lease obligations, which are minimal.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2016-01, Measurement of Financial Instruments

 

Issued: January 2016

 

Summary: The amendments in this Update require all equity investments to be measured at fair value with changes in the fair value recognized through net income (other than those accounted for under equity method of accounting or those that result in consolidation of the investee).  The amendments in this Update also require an entity to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk when the entity has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments. In addition, the amendments in this Update eliminate the requirement to disclose the fair value of financial instruments measured at amortized cost for entities that are not public business entities and the requirement to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet for public business entities.

 

Effective Date: For public entities, the amendments in the Update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company currently holds a small portfolio of equity investments for which the fair value fluctuates with market activity. Had ASU 2016-01 become effective on June 30, 2017, the cumulative effect adjustment to income before tax would have been $277,000 (see Note 6). The cumulative adjustment that will be recognized upon adoption of the amendments in this update in the first quarter of 2018 will be dependent upon the size of the equity portfolio and the market values at that time.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)

 

Issued: May 2014

 

Summary: The amendments in this Update establish a comprehensive revenue recognition standard for virtually all industries under U.S. GAAP, including those that previously followed industry-specific guidance such as the real estate, construction and software industries. The revenue standard’s core principle is built on the contract between a vendor and a customer for the provision of goods and services. It attempts to depict the exchange of rights and obligations between the parties in the pattern of revenue recognition based on the consideration to which the vendor is entitled. To accomplish this objective, the standard requires five basic steps: (i) identify the contract with the customer, (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determine the transaction price, (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation.

 

 10 

 

 

Effective Date and Transition: Public entities will apply the new standard to annual reports beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods therein. Three basic transition methods are available – full retrospective, retrospective with certain practical expedients, and a cumulative effect approach. Under the third alternative, an entity would apply the new revenue standard only to contracts that are incomplete under legacy U.S. GAAP at the date of initial application (e.g. January 1, 2017) and recognize the cumulative effect of the new standard as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings. That is, prior years would not be restated and additional disclosures would be required to enable users of the financial statements to understand the impact of adopting the new standard in the current year compared to prior years that are presented under legacy U.S. GAAP. Early adoption is prohibited under U.S. GAAP. The Company is evaluating the effects this Update will have on the Company’s consolidated financial condition or results of operations.

 

Accounting Standards Update 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606):

Deferral of the Effective Date

 

Issued: August 2015

 

Summary: ASU 2015-14 defers the effective date of the new revenue recognition standard by one year. As such, it now takes effect for public entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. All other entities have an additional year. However, early adoption is permitted for any entity that chooses to adopt the new standard as of the original effective date. Early adoption is permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that year. Because the amended guidance does not apply to revenue associated with financial instruments, including loans and securities that are accounted for under other U.S. GAAP, the Company’s preliminary analysis suggests that the adoption of this amended guidance is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements, although the Company will also be subject to expanded disclosure requirements upon adoption, and the Company’s recognition processes for wealth and asset management revenue, banking revenue and card and processing revenue may be affected. However, there are certain areas of the amended guidance, such as credit card interchange fees programs, which are subject to interpretation and for which the Company has not made final conclusions regarding the applicability and the related impact, if any, on the consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the results of the Company’s materiality analysis, as well as its selected adoption method, may change as these conclusions are reached.

 

3. Merger

 

On November 30, 2015, Juniata consummated the merger with FNBPA Bancorp, Inc. (“FNBPA”), a Pennsylvania corporation. FNBPA merged with and into Juniata, with Juniata continuing as the surviving entity. Simultaneously with the consummation of the foregoing merger, First National Bank of Port Allegany (“FNB”), a national banking association and a wholly-owned subsidiary of FNBPA, merged with and into the Bank.

 

As part of this transaction, FNBPA shareholders received either 2.7813 shares of Juniata’s common stock or $50.34 in cash in exchange for each share of FNBPA common stock. As a result, Juniata issued 607,815 shares of common stock with an acquisition date fair value of approximately $10,637,000, based on Juniata’s closing stock price of $17.50 on November 30, 2015, and cash of $2,208,000, including cash in lieu of fractional shares. The fair value of total consideration paid was $12,845,000.

 

The assets and liabilities of FNB and FNBPA were recorded on the consolidated balances sheet at their estimated fair value as of November 30, 2015, and their results of operations have been included in the consolidated income statement since such date.

 

Included in the purchase price was goodwill and a core deposit intangible of $3,335,000 and $343,000, respectively. The core deposit intangible will be amortized over a ten-year period using a sum of the year’s digits basis. The goodwill will not be amortized, but will be measured annually for impairment or more frequently if circumstances require.

The allocation of the purchase price is as follows, in thousands of dollars:

 

Purchase price assigned to FNBPA common shares exchanged for 607,815 Juniata common shares  $10,637 
Purchase price assigned to FNBPA common shares exchanged for cash   2,208 
Total purchase price   12,845 
FNBPA net assets acquired:     
Tangible common equity   9,854 
Adjustments to reflect assets acquired and liabilities assumed at fair value:     
Total fair value adjustments   (523)
Associated deferred income taxes   179 
Fair value adjustment to net assets acquired, net of tax   (344)
Total FNBPA net assets acquired   9,510 
Goodwill resulting from the merger  $3,335 

 

The following table summarizes the estimated fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, in thousands of dollars.

 

Total purchase price  $12,845 
      
Net assets acquired     
Cash and cash equivalents   3,452 
Interest-bearing time deposits   350 
Investment securities   35,458 
Loans   47,055 
Premises and equipment   419 
Accrued interest receivable   550 
Core deposit and other intangibles   343 
Other real estate owned   114 
Other assets   763 
Deposits   (77,665)
Accrued interest payable   (13)
Other liabilities   (1,316)
    9,510 
Goodwill  $3,335 

 

As of November 30, 2015, the merger date, goodwill was recorded at $3,335,000. ASC 805 allows for adjustments to goodwill for a period of up to one year after the merger date for information that becomes available that reflects circumstances at the merger date. During 2016, such information became available, and goodwill was increased by $67,000 to $3,402,000 to reflect the adjustments to fair value of two assets.

 

The fair value of the financial assets acquired included loans receivable with a gross amortized cost basis of $47,797,000. The table below illustrates the fair value adjustments made to the amortized cost basis in order to present a fair value of the loans acquired, in thousands of dollars.

 

Gross amortized cost basis at November 30, 2015  $47,797 
Market rate adjustment   (110)
Credit fair value adjustment on pools of homogeneous loans   (73)
Credit fair value adjustment on impaired loans   (559)
Fair value of purchased loans at November 30, 2015  $47,055 

 

The market rate adjustment represents the movement in market interest rates, irrespective of credit adjustments, compared to the stated rates of the acquired loans. The credit adjustment made on pools of homogeneous loans represents the changes in credit quality of the underlying borrowers from the loan inception to the acquisition date. The credit adjustment on impaired loans is derived in accordance with ASC 310-30 and represents the portion of the loan balances that has been deemed uncollectible based on the Company’s expectations of future cash flows for each respective loan.

The information about the acquired FNBPA impaired loan portfolio as of November 30, 2015 is as follows, in thousands of dollars.

 

Contractually required principal and interest at acquisition  $2,488 
Contractual cash flows not expected to be collected (nonaccretable discount)   (1,427)
Expected cash flows at acquisition   1,061 
Interest component of expected cash flows (accretable discount)   (157)
Fair value of acquired loans  $904 

 

The following table presents unaudited pro forma information, in thousands, as if the merger between Juniata and FNBPA had been completed on January 1, 2014. The pro forma information does not necessarily reflect the results of operations that would have occurred had Juniata merged with FNBPA at the beginning of 2014. Supplemental pro forma earnings for 2015 were adjusted to exclude $1,637,000 of merger related costs (exclusive of the corresponding tax impact) incurred in 2015; the results for 2014 were adjusted to include these charges. The pro forma financial information does not include the impact of possible business model changes, nor does it consider any potential impacts of current market conditions or revenues, expense efficiencies or other factors.

Unrecognized expense for defined benefit pension   (2,268)   (2,343)
Accumulated other comprehensive loss  $(2,859)  $(3,209)

 

5. Earnings Per Share

 

Basic earnings per share (EPS) is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the earnings of the Company. Potential common shares that may be issued by the Company relate solely to outstanding stock options and are determined using the treasury stock method.

Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 320, Investments – Debt and Equity Securities, clarifies the interaction of the factors that should be considered when determining whether a debt security is other-than-temporarily impaired. For debt securities, management must assess whether (a) it has the intent to sell the security and (b) it is more likely than not that it will be required to sell the security prior to its anticipated recovery. These steps are taken before an assessment is made as to whether the entity will recover the cost basis of the investment. For equity securities, consideration is given to management’s intention and ability to hold the securities until recovery of unrealized losses in assessing potential other-than-temporary impairment. More specifically, factors considered to determine other-than-temporary impairment status for individual equity holdings include the length of time the stock has remained in an unrealized loss position, the percentage of unrealized loss compared to the carrying cost of the stock, dividend reduction or suspension, market analyst reviews and expectations, and other pertinent factors that would affect expectations for recovery or further decline.

 

In instances when a determination is made that an other-than-temporary impairment exists, the entity does not intend to sell the debt security and it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell the debt security prior to its anticipated recovery, the other-than-temporary impairment is separated into the amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to a decrease in cash flows expected to be collected from the debt security (the credit loss) and the amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to all other factors. The amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to the credit loss is recognized in earnings. The amount of the total other-than-temporary impairment related to all other factors is recognized in other comprehensive (loss) income.

 

The following table shows gross unrealized losses and fair value, aggregated by category and length of time that individual securities have been in a continuous unrealized loss position, at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 (in thousands):

 

   Unrealized Losses at June 30, 2017

Total temporarily impaired securities  $119,209   $(2,197)  $300   $(2)  $119,509   $(2,199)

 

At June 30, 2017, 21 U.S. Government agency and corporation securities had unrealized losses that, in the aggregate, did not exceed 1.0% of amortized cost. One of these securities have been in a continuous loss position for 12 months or more.

 

At June 30, 2017, 16 obligations of state and political subdivisions had unrealized losses that, in the aggregate, did not exceed 1.0% of amortized cost. One of these securities has been in a continuous loss position for 12 months or more.

 

At June 30, 2017, 33 mortgage-backed securities had an unrealized loss that did not exceed 1.0% of amortized cost. None of these securities has been in a continuous loss position for 12 months or more.

 

The mortgage-backed securities in the Company’s portfolio are government sponsored enterprise (GSE) pass-through instruments issued by the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA) or Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC), which guarantees the timely payment of principal on these investments.

 

The unrealized losses noted above are considered to be temporary impairments. The decline in the values of the debt securities is due only to interest rate fluctuations, rather than erosion of issuer credit quality. As a result, the payment of contractual cash flows, including principal repayment, is not at risk. Because the Company does not intend to sell the securities, does not believe it will be required to sell the securities before recovery and expects to recover the entire amortized cost basis, none of the debt securities are deemed to be other-than-temporarily impaired.

 

Equity securities owned by the Company consist of common stock of various financial services providers and are evaluated quarterly for evidence of other-than-temporary impairment. The Company had one equity security that was in an unrealized loss position for 12 months or more as of June 30, 2017. Management has identified no other-than-temporary impairment as of, or for the periods ended June 30, 2017, June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2016, respectively, in the equity portfolio. Management continues to track the performance of each stock owned to determine if it is prudent to recognize any other-than-temporary impairment charges. The Company has the ability and intent to hold its equity securities until recovery of unrealized losses.

 

7. Loans and Related Allowance for Credit Losses

 

Loans that the Company has the intent and ability to hold for the foreseeable future or until maturity or payoff are stated at the outstanding unpaid principal balances, net of any deferred fees or costs and the allowance for loan losses. Interest income on all loans, other than nonaccrual loans, is accrued over the term of the loans based on the amount of principal outstanding. Unearned income is amortized to income over the life of the loans, using the interest method.

 

The loan portfolio is segmented into commercial and consumer loans. Commercial loans are comprised of the following classes of loans: (1) commercial, financial and agricultural, (2) commercial real estate, (3) real estate construction, a portion of (4) mortgage loans and (5) obligations of states and political subdivisions. Consumer loans are comprised of a portion of (4) mortgage loans and (6) personal loans.

Loans on which the accrual of interest has been discontinued are designated as non-accrual loans. Accrual of interest on loans is generally discontinued when the contractual payment of principal or interest has become 90 days past due or reasonable doubt exists as to the full, timely collection of principal or interest. However, it is the Company’s policy to continue to accrue interest on loans over 90 days past due as long as (1) they are guaranteed or well secured and (2) there is an effective means of timely collection in process. When a loan is placed on non-accrual status, all unpaid interest credited to income in the current year is reversed against current period income, and unpaid interest accrued in prior years is charged against the allowance for loan losses. Interest received on nonaccrual loans generally is either applied against principal or reported as interest income, according to management’s judgment as to the collectability of principal. Generally, accruals are resumed on loans only when the obligation is brought fully current with respect to interest and principal, has performed in accordance with the contractual terms for a reasonable period of time and the ultimate collectability of the total contractual principal and interest is no longer in doubt.

 

The Company originates loans in the portfolio with the intent to hold them until maturity. At the time the Company no longer intends to hold loans to maturity based on asset/liability management practices, the Company transfers loans from its portfolio to held for sale at fair value. Any write-down recorded upon transfer is charged against the allowance for loan losses. Any write-downs recorded after the initial transfers are recorded as a charge to other non-interest expense. Gains or losses recognized upon sale are included in gains on sales of loans which is a component of non-interest income.

 

Loans Held for Sale

 

The Company also originates residential mortgage loans with the intent to sell. These individual loans are normally funded by the buyer immediately. The Company maintains servicing rights on these loans. Mortgage servicing rights are recognized as an asset upon the sale of a mortgage loan. A portion of the cost of the loan is allocated to the servicing right based upon relative fair value. Servicing rights are intangible assets and are carried at estimated fair value. Adjustments to fair value are recorded as non-interest income and included in gain on sales of loans in the consolidated statements of income.

 

In a business combination, the Company may acquire loans which it intends to sell. These loans are assigned a fair value by obtaining actual bids on the loans and adjusting for contingencies in the bids. These loans are carried at lower of cost or market value until sold, adjusted periodically if conditions change before the subsequent sale. Adjustments to fair value and gains or losses recognized upon sale are included in gains on sales of loans which is a component of non-interest income.

 

Commercial, Financial and Agricultural Lending

 

The Company originates commercial, financial and agricultural loans primarily to businesses located in its primary market area and surrounding areas. These loans are used for various business purposes, which include short-term loans and lines of credit to finance machinery and equipment purchases, inventory and accounts receivable. Generally, the maximum term for loans extended on machinery and equipment is shorter and does not exceed the projected useful life of such machinery and equipment. Most business lines of credit are written with a five year maturity, subject to an annual credit review.

 

Commercial loans are generally secured with short-term assets; however, in many cases, additional collateral, such as real estate, is provided as additional security for the loan. Loan-to-value maximum values have been established by the Company and are specific to the type of collateral. Collateral values may be determined using invoices, inventory reports, accounts receivable aging reports, collateral appraisals, etc.

 

In underwriting commercial loans, an analysis of the borrower’s character, capacity to repay the loan, the adequacy of the borrower’s capital and collateral, as well as an evaluation of conditions affecting the borrower, is performed. Analysis of the borrower’s past, present and future cash flows is also an important aspect of the Company’s analysis.

 

Concentration analysis assists in identifying industry specific risk inherent in commercial, financial and agricultural lending. Mitigating factors include the identification of secondary and tertiary sources of repayment and appropriate increases in oversight.

 

Commercial, financial and agricultural loans generally present a higher level of risk than certain other types of loans, particularly during slow economic conditions.

 

Commercial Real Estate Lending

 

The Company engages in commercial real estate lending in its primary market area and surrounding areas. The Company’s commercial real estate portfolio is secured primarily by residential housing, commercial buildings, raw land and hotels. Generally, commercial real estate loans have terms that do not exceed 20 years, have loan-to-value ratios of up to 80% of the appraised value of the property and are typically secured by personal guarantees of the borrowers.

 

 18 

 

 

As economic conditions deteriorate, the Company reduces its exposure in real estate loans with higher risk characteristics. In underwriting these loans, the Company performs a thorough analysis of the financial condition of the borrower, the borrower’s credit history, and the reliability and predictability of the cash flow generated by the property securing the loan. Appraisals on properties securing commercial real estate loans originated by the Company are performed by independent appraisers.

 

Commercial real estate loans generally present a higher level of risk than certain other types of loans, particularly during slow economic conditions.

 

Real Estate Construction Lending

 

The Company engages in real estate construction lending in its primary market area and surrounding areas. The Company’s real estate construction lending consists of commercial and residential site development loans, as well as commercial building construction and residential housing construction loans.

 

The Company’s commercial real estate construction loans are generally secured with the subject property, and advances are made in conformity with a pre-determined draw schedule supported by independent inspections. Terms of construction loans depend on the specifics of the project, such as estimated absorption rates, estimated time to complete, etc.

 

In underwriting commercial real estate construction loans, the Company performs a thorough analysis of the financial condition of the borrower, the borrower’s credit history, the reliability and predictability of the cash flow generated by the project using feasibility studies, market data, etc. Appraisals on properties securing commercial real estate loans originated by the Company are performed by independent appraisers.

 

Real estate construction loans generally present a higher level of risk than certain other types of loans, particularly during slow economic conditions. The difficulty of estimating total construction costs adds to the risk as well.

 

Mortgage Lending

 

The Company’s real estate mortgage portfolio is comprised of consumer residential mortgages and business loans secured by one-to-four family properties. One-to-four family residential mortgage loan originations, including home equity installment and home equity lines of credit loans, are generated by the Company’s marketing efforts, its present customers, walk-in customers and referrals. These loans originate primarily within the Company’s market area or with customers primarily from the market area.

 

The Company offers fixed-rate and adjustable rate mortgage loans with terms up to a maximum of 25-years for both permanent structures and those under construction. The Company’s one-to-four family residential mortgage originations are secured primarily by properties located in its primary market area and surrounding areas. The majority of the Company’s residential mortgage loans originate with a loan-to-value of 80% or less. Home equity installment loans are secured by the borrower’s primary residence with a maximum loan-to-value of 80% and a maximum term of 15 years. Home equity lines of credit are secured by the borrower’s primary residence with a maximum loan-to-value of 90% and a maximum term of 20 years.

 

In underwriting one-to-four family residential real estate loans, the Company evaluates the borrower’s ability to make monthly payments, the borrower’s repayment history and the value of the property securing the loan. The ability to repay is determined by the borrower’s employment history, current financial conditions, and credit background. The analysis is based primarily on the customer’s ability to repay and secondarily on the collateral or security. Most properties securing real estate loans made by the Company are appraised by independent fee appraisers. The Company generally requires mortgage loan borrowers to obtain an attorney’s title opinion or title insurance, and fire and property insurance (including flood insurance, if necessary) in an amount not less than the amount of the loan. The Company does not engage in sub-prime residential mortgage originations.

 

Residential mortgage loans and home equity loans generally present a lower level of risk than certain other types of consumer loans because they are secured by the borrower’s primary residence. Risk is increased when the Company is in a subordinate position for the loan collateral.

Obligations of States and Political Subdivisions

 

The Company lends to local municipalities and other tax-exempt organizations. These loans are primarily tax-anticipation notes and, as such, carry little risk. Historically, the Company has never had a loss on any loan of this type.

 

Personal Lending

 

The Company offers a variety of secured and unsecured personal loans, including vehicle loans, mobile home loans and loans secured by savings deposits as well as other types of personal loans.

 

Personal loan terms vary according to the type and value of collateral and creditworthiness of the borrower. In underwriting personal loans, a thorough analysis of the borrower’s willingness and financial ability to repay the loan as agreed is performed. The ability to repay is determined by the borrower’s employment history, current financial conditions and credit background.

 

Personal loans may entail greater credit risk than do residential mortgage loans, particularly in the case of personal loans which are unsecured or are secured by rapidly depreciable assets, such as automobiles or recreational equipment. In such cases, any repossessed collateral for a defaulted personal loan may not provide an adequate source of repayment of the outstanding loan balance as a result of the greater likelihood of damage, loss or depreciation. In addition, personal loan collections are dependent on the borrower’s continuing financial stability, and thus are more likely to be affected by adverse personal circumstances. Furthermore, the application of various federal and state laws, including bankruptcy and insolvency laws, may limit the amount which can be recovered on such loans.

 

Allowance for Credit Losses

 

The allowance for credit losses consists of the allowance for loan losses and the reserve for unfunded lending commitments. The allowance for loan losses (“allowance”) represents management’s estimate of losses inherent in the loan portfolio as of the consolidated statement of financial condition date and is recorded as a reduction to loans. The reserve for unfunded lending commitments represents management’s estimate of losses inherent in its unfunded lending commitments and is recorded in other liabilities on the consolidated statement of financial condition, when necessary. The amount of the reserve for unfunded lending commitments is not material to the consolidated financial statements. The allowance for loan losses is increased by the provision for loan losses, and decreased by charge-offs, net of recoveries. Loans deemed to be uncollectible are charged against the allowance for loan losses, and subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance.

 

For financial reporting purposes, the provision for loan losses charged to current operating income is based on management's estimates, and actual losses may vary from estimates. These estimates are reviewed and adjusted at least quarterly and are reported in earnings in the periods in which they become known.

 

Loans included in any class are considered for charge-off when:

·principal or interest has been in default for 120 days or more and for which no payment has been received during the previous four months;
·all collateral securing the loan has been liquidated and a deficiency balance remains;
·a bankruptcy notice is received for an unsecured loan;
·a confirming loss event has occurred; or
·the loan is deemed to be uncollectible for any other reason.

 

The allowance for loan losses is maintained at a level considered adequate to offset probable losses on the Company’s existing loans. The analysis of the allowance for loan losses relies heavily on changes in observable trends that may indicate potential credit weaknesses. Management’s periodic evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance is based on the Company’s past loan loss experience, known and inherent risks in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower’s ability to repay, the estimated value of any underlying collateral, composition of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions and other relevant factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires material estimates that may be susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available.

 

In addition, regulatory agencies, as an integral part of their examination process, periodically review the Company’s allowance for loan losses and may require the Company to recognize additions to the allowance for loan losses based on their judgments about information available to them at the time of their examination, which may not be currently available to management. Based on management’s comprehensive analysis of the loan portfolio, management believes the level of the allowance for loan losses as of June 30, 2017 was adequate.

There are two components of the allowance: a specific component for loans that are deemed to be impaired; and a general component for contingencies.

 

A loan is considered to be impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect the scheduled payments of principal or interest when due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. Factors considered by management in determining impairment include payment status, collateral value and the probability of collecting scheduled principal and interest payments when due. Loans that experience insignificant payment delays and payment shortfalls generally are not classified as impaired. Management determines the significance of payment delays and payment shortfalls on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration all of the circumstances surrounding the loans and the borrower, including the length of the delay, the reasons for the delay, the borrower’s prior payment record and the amount of the shortfall in relation to the principal and interest owed. Impairment is measured on a loan by loan basis by the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective interest rate, the loan’s observable market price or the fair value of the collateral if the loan is collateral dependent.

 

The estimated fair values of substantially all of the Company’s impaired loans are measured based on the estimated fair value of the loan’s collateral. For commercial loans secured with real estate, estimated fair values are determined primarily through third-party appraisals. When a real estate secured loan becomes impaired, a decision is made regarding whether an updated certified appraisal of the real estate is necessary. This decision is based on various considerations, including the age of the most recent appraisal, the loan-to-value ratio based on the current appraisal and the condition of the property. Appraised values may be discounted to arrive at the estimated selling price of the collateral, which is considered to be the estimated fair value. The discounts also include the estimated costs to sell the property. For commercial loans secured by non-real estate collateral, estimated fair values are determined based on the borrower’s financial statements, inventory reports, aging of accounts receivable, equipment appraisals or invoices. Indications of value from these sources are generally discounted based on the age of the financial information or the quality of the assets. For such loans that are classified as impaired, an allowance is established when the discounted cash flows (or collateral value or observable market price) of the impaired loan is lower than the carrying value of that loan. The Company generally does not separately identify individual consumer segment loans for impairment disclosures, unless such loans are subject to a restructuring agreement.

 

Loans whose terms are modified are classified as troubled debt restructurings if the Company grants borrowers concessions and it is deemed that those borrowers are experiencing financial difficulty. Concessions granted under a troubled debt restructuring generally involve a below-market interest rate based on the loan’s risk characteristics or an extension of a loan’s stated maturity date. Nonaccrual troubled debt restructurings are restored to accrual status if principal and interest payments, under the modified terms, are current for a sustained period of time after modification. Loans classified as troubled debt restructurings are designated as impaired.

 

The component of the allowance for contingencies relates to other loans that have been segmented into risk rated categories. The borrower’s overall financial condition, repayment sources, guarantors and value of collateral, if appropriate, are evaluated quarterly or when credit deficiencies arise, such as delinquent loan payments. Credit quality risk ratings include regulatory classifications of special mention, substandard, doubtful and loss. Loans classified as special mention have potential weaknesses that deserve management’s close attention. If uncorrected, the potential weaknesses may result in deterioration of the repayment prospects. Loans classified as substandard have one or more well-defined weaknesses that jeopardize the liquidation of the debt. Substandard loans include loans that are inadequately protected by the current net worth and paying capacity of the obligor or of the collateral pledged, if any. Loans classified doubtful have all the weaknesses inherent in loans classified substandard with the added characteristic that collection or liquidation in full, on the basis of current conditions and facts, is highly improbable. Loans classified as a loss are considered uncollectible and are charged to the allowance for loan losses. Loans not classified are rated pass. Specific reserves may be established for larger, individual classified loans as a result of this evaluation, as discussed above. Remaining loans are categorized into large groups of smaller balance homogeneous loans and are collectively evaluated for impairment. This computation is generally based on historical loss experience adjusted for qualitative factors. The historical loss experience is averaged over a ten-year period for each of the portfolio segments. The ten-year timeframe was selected in order to capture activity over a wide range of economic conditions and has been consistently used by the Company for the past seven years. Qualitative risk factors are reviewed for relevancy each quarter and include:

 

·National, regional and local economic and business conditions, as well as the condition of various market segments, including the underlying collateral for collateral dependent loans;
·Nature and volume of the portfolio and terms of loans;

 

 21 

 

 

·Experience, ability and depth of lending and credit management and staff;
·Volume and severity of past due, classified and nonaccrual loans, as well as other loan modifications;
·Existence and effect of any concentrations of credit and changes in the level of such concentrations; and
·Effect of external factors, including competition.

 

Each factor is assigned a value to reflect improving, stable or declining conditions based on management’s best judgment using relevant information available at the time of the evaluation. Adjustments to the factors are supported through documentation of changes in conditions in a narrative accompanying the allowance for loan loss calculation.

 

Acquired Loans

 

Loans that Juniata acquires through business combinations are recorded at fair value with no carryover of the related allowance for loan losses. Fair value of the loans involves estimating the amount and timing of principal and interest cash flows expected to be collected on the loans and discounting those cash flows at a market rate of interest.

 

The excess of cash flows expected at acquisition over the estimated fair value is referred to as the accretable discount and is recognized into interest income over the remaining life of the loan. The difference between contractually required payments at acquisition and the cash flows expected to be collected at acquisition is referred to as the nonaccretable discount. The nonaccretable discount includes estimated future credit losses expected to be incurred over the life of the loan. Subsequent decreases to the expected cash flows will require Juniata to evaluate the need for an additional allowance for credit losses. Subsequent improvement in expected cash flows will result in the reversal of a corresponding amount of the nonaccretable discount which Juniata will then reclassify as accretable discount that will be recognized into interest income over the remaining life of the loan.

 

Acquired loans that met the criteria for impaired or nonaccrual of interest prior to the acquisition may be considered performing upon acquisition, regardless of whether the customer is contractually delinquent, if Juniata expects to fully collect the new carrying value (i.e. fair value) of the loans. As such, Juniata may no longer consider the loan to be nonaccrual or nonperforming and may accrue interest on these loans, including the impact of any accretable discount. In addition, charge-offs on such loans would be first applied to the nonaccretable difference portion of the fair value adjustment.

 

Loans acquired through business combinations that do not meet the specific criteria of ASC 310-30, but for which a discount is attributable at least in part to credit quality, are also accounted for in accordance with this guidance. As a result, related discounts are recognized subsequently through accretion based on the contractual cash flows of the acquired loans.

The Company has certain loans in its portfolio that are considered to be impaired. It is the policy of the Company to recognize income on impaired loans that have been transferred to nonaccrual status on a cash basis, only to the extent that it exceeds principal balance recovery. Until an impaired loan is placed on nonaccrual status, income is recognized on the accrual basis. Collateral analysis is performed on each impaired loan at least quarterly, and results are used to determine if a specific reserve is necessary to adjust the carrying value of each individual loan down to the estimated fair value. Generally, specific reserves are carried against impaired loans based upon estimated collateral value until a confirming loss event occurs or until termination of the credit is scheduled through liquidation of the collateral or foreclosure. Charge off will occur when a confirmed loss is identified. Professional appraisals of collateral, discounted for expected selling costs, appraisal age, economic conditions and other known factors are used to determine the charge-off amount.

The Company’s troubled debt restructurings are also impaired loans, which may result in a specific allocation and subsequent charge-off if appropriate. As of June 30, 2017, there were specific reserves carried for one troubled debt restructured loan, in the amount of $8,000. There were no defaults of troubled debt restructurings that took place during the three or six months ended June 30, 2017 or 2016 within 12 months of restructure. On December 31, 2016, there were no specific reserves carried for troubled debt restructured loans and no charge-offs relating to the troubled debt restructurings. The amended terms of the restructured loans vary, whereby interest rates have been reduced, principal payments have been reduced or deferred for a period of time and/or maturity dates have been extended.

 

The following tables summarize the loans whose terms have been modified resulting in troubled debt restructurings during the six month period ending June 30, 2017 and the three and six month periods ending June 30, 2016, in thousands of dollars.

8. Goodwill and other intangible assets

 

Branch Acquisition

 

On September 8, 2006, the Company acquired a branch office in Richfield, PA. Goodwill at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 was $2,046,000. Core deposit intangible of $431,000 was fully amortized as of December 31, 2016, and was $7,000, net of amortization of $431,000, at June 30, 2016. The core deposit intangible was amortized over a ten-year period on a straight line basis. Goodwill is not amortized, but is measured annually for impairment or more frequently if certain events occur which might indicate goodwill has been impaired. Core deposit amortization expense was $11,000 and $22,000 in the three and six months ending June 30, 2016. There was no impairment of goodwill during the three or six month periods ended June 30, 2017 or 2016.

 

FNBPA Acquisition

 

On November 30, 2015, the Company acquired FNBPA Bancorp, Inc. (“FNBPA”) and as a result, carries goodwill of $3,402,000 relating to the acquisition. Core deposit intangible in the amount of $303,000 was recorded and is being amortized over a ten-year period using a sum of the year’s digits basis. Other intangible assets were identified and recorded as of November 30, 2015, in the amount of $40,000 and are being amortized on a straight-line basis over two years, through November 30, 2017.

Amortization expense recognized for intangibles related to the FNBPA acquisition in the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 was $18,000 and $35,000, respectively. The amortization expense recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 was $18,000 and $38,000, respectively, for intangibles related to the FNBPA acquisition.

9. Investment in Unconsolidated Subsidiary

 

The Company owns 39.16% of the outstanding common stock of Liverpool Community Bank (LCB), Liverpool, PA. This investment is accounted for under the equity method of accounting and is being carried at $4,787,000 as of June 30, 2017. The Company increases its investment in LCB for its share of earnings and decreases its investment by any dividends received from LCB. The investment is evaluated quarterly for impairment. A loss in value of the investment which is determined to be other than a temporary decline would be recognized as a loss in the period in which such determination is made. Evidence of a loss in value might include, but would not necessarily be limited to, absence of an ability to recover the carrying amount of the investment or inability of LCB to sustain an earnings capacity that would justify the current carrying value of the investment. There was no impairment of goodwill relating to LCB during the three or six month periods ended June 30, 2017 or 2016.

 

10. Fair Value Measurement

 

Fair value measurement and disclosure guidance defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction (that is, not a forced liquidation or distressed sale) between market participants at the measurement date under current market conditions. Additional guidance is provided on determining when the volume and level of activity for the asset or liability has significantly decreased. The guidance also includes guidance on identifying circumstances when a transaction may not be considered orderly.

 

Fair value measurement and disclosure guidance provides a list of factors that a reporting entity should evaluate to determine whether there has been a significant decrease in the volume and level of activity for the asset or liability in relation to normal market activity for the asset or liability. When the reporting entity concludes there has been a significant decrease in the volume and level of activity for the asset or liability, further analysis of the information from that market is needed, and significant adjustments to the related prices may be necessary to estimate fair value in accordance with fair value measurement and disclosure guidance.

 

This guidance clarifies that, when there has been a significant decrease in the volume and level of activity for the asset or liability, some transactions may not be orderly. In those situations, the entity must evaluate the weight of the evidence to determine whether the transaction is orderly. The guidance provides a list of circumstances that may indicate that a transaction is not orderly. A transaction price that is not associated with an orderly transaction is given little, if any, weight when estimating fair value.

 

 31 

 

 

Fair value measurement and disclosure guidance defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. A fair value measurement assumes that the transaction to sell the asset or transfer the liability occurs in the principal market for the asset or liability or, in the absence of a principal market, the most advantageous market for the asset or liability. The price in the principal (or most advantageous) market used to measure the fair value of the asset or liability is not adjusted for transaction costs. An orderly transaction is a transaction that assumes exposure to the market for a period prior to the measurement date to allow for marketing activities that are usual and customary for transactions involving such assets and liabilities; it is not a forced transaction. Market participants are buyers and sellers in the principal market that are (i) independent, (ii) knowledgeable, (iii) able to transact and (iv) willing to transact.

 

Fair value measurement and disclosure guidance requires the use of valuation techniques that are consistent with the market approach, the income approach and/or the cost approach. The market approach uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets and liabilities. The income approach uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts, such as cash flows or earnings, to a single present amount on a discounted basis. The cost approach is based on the amount that currently would be required to replace the service capacity of an asset (replacement cost). Valuation techniques should be consistently applied. Inputs to valuation techniques refer to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Inputs may be observable, meaning those that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from independent sources, or unobservable, meaning those that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. In that regard, the guidance establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs that gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The fair value hierarchy is as follows:

 

Level 1 Inputs – Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date.

 

Level 2 Inputs – Inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These might include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (such as interest rates, volatilities, prepayment speeds, credit risks, etc.) or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by market data by correlation or other means.

 

Level 3 Inputs – Unobservable inputs for determining the fair values of assets or liabilities that reflect an entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the assets or liabilities.

 

An asset’s or liability’s placement in the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

A description of the valuation methodologies used for assets and liabilities measured at fair value, as well as the general classification of such assets and liabilities pursuant to the valuation hierarchy, is set forth below.

 

In general, fair value is based upon quoted market prices, where available. If such quoted market prices are not available, fair value is based upon internally developed models that primarily use, as inputs, observable market-based parameters. Valuation adjustments may be made to ensure that financial instruments are recorded at fair value. These adjustments may include amounts to reflect counterparty credit quality and the Company’s creditworthiness, among other things, as well as unobservable parameters. Any such valuation adjustments are applied consistently over time. The Company’s valuation methodologies may produce a fair value calculation that may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values. While management believes the Company’s valuation methodologies are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different estimate of fair value at the reporting date.

 

Securities Available for Sale – Debt securities classified as available for sale are reported at fair value utilizing Level 2 inputs. For these securities, the Company obtains fair value measurement from an independent pricing service. The fair value measurements consider observable data that may include dealer quotes, market spreads, cash flows, the U.S. Treasury yield curve, live trading levels, trade execution data, market consensus prepayment speeds, credit information and the bond’s terms and conditions, among other things. Equity securities classified as available for sale are reported at fair value using Level 1and Level 2 inputs.

Impaired Loans – Certain impaired loans are reported on a non-recurring basis at the fair value of the underlying collateral since repayment is expected solely from the collateral. Fair value is generally determined based upon independent third-party appraisals of the properties, or discounted cash flows based upon the expected proceeds. These assets are included as Level 3 fair values, based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurements.

 

Other Real Estate Owned – Certain assets included in other real estate owned are carried at fair value as a result of impairment and, accordingly, are presented as measured on a non-recurring basis. Values are estimated using Level 3 inputs, based on appraisals that consider the sales prices of property in the proximate vicinity.

 

Mortgage Servicing Rights – The fair value of servicing assets is based on the present value of estimated future cash flows on pools of mortgages stratified by rate and maturity date and are considered Level 3 inputs.

 

The following table summarizes financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, segregated by the level of the valuation inputs within the fair value hierarchy utilized to measure fair value (in thousands). There were no transfers of assets between fair value Level 1 and Level 2 during the six months ended June 30, 2017 or 2016.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Management uses its best judgment in estimating the fair value of the Company’s financial instruments; however, there are inherent weaknesses in any estimation technique. Therefore, the fair value estimates reported herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could have realized in sales transactions on the dates indicated. The estimated fair value amounts have been measured as of their respective year ends and have not been re-evaluated or updated for purposes of these consolidated financial statements subsequent to those respective dates. As such, the estimated fair values of these financial instruments subsequent to the respective reporting dates may be different from the amounts reported at each quarter end.

 

The information presented below should not be interpreted as an estimate of the fair value of the entire Company since a fair value calculation is provided only for a limited portion of the Company’s assets and liabilities. Due to a wide range of valuation techniques and the degree of subjectivity used in making the estimates, comparisons between the Company’s disclosures and those of other companies may not be meaningful.

 

The following describes the estimated fair value of the Company’s financial instruments as well as the significant methods and assumptions not previously disclosed used to determine these estimated fair values.

 

Carrying values approximate fair value for cash and due from banks, interest-bearing demand deposits with banks, restricted stock in the Federal Home Loan Bank, loans held for sale, interest receivable, mortgage servicing rights, non-interest bearing deposits, securities sold under agreements to repurchase, short-term borrowings and interest payable. Other than cash and due from banks, which are considered Level 1 inputs, and mortgage servicing rights, which are Level 3 inputs, these instruments are Level 2 inputs.

 

Interest bearing time deposits with banks – The estimated fair value is determined by discounting the contractual future cash flows, using the rates currently offered for deposits of similar remaining maturities.

 

Loans – For variable-rate loans that reprice frequently and which entail no significant changes in credit risk, carrying values approximated fair value. Substantially all commercial loans and real estate mortgages are variable rate loans. The fair value of other loans (i.e. consumer loans and fixed-rate real estate mortgages) is estimated by calculating the present value of the cash flow difference between the current rate and the market rate, for the average maturity, discounted quarterly at the market rate.

 

 34 

 

 

Fixed rate time deposits – The estimated fair value is determined by discounting the contractual future cash flows, using the rates currently offered for deposits of similar remaining maturities.

 

Long-term debt and other interest-bearing liabilities – The fair value is estimated using discounted cash flow analysis, based on incremental borrowing rates for similar types of arrangements.

 

Commitments to extend credit and letters of credit – The fair value of commitments to extend credit is estimated using the fees currently charged to enter into similar agreements, taking into account market interest rates, the remaining terms and present credit-worthiness of the counterparties. The fair value of guarantees and letters of credit is based on fees currently charged for similar agreements.

 

The estimated fair values of the Company’s financial instruments are as follows:

11. Defined Benefit Retirement Plan

 

The Company sponsors a defined benefit retirement plan (The Juniata Valley Bank Retirement Plan (“JVB Plan”)) which covers substantially all of its employees employed prior to December 31, 2007. As of January 1, 2008, the JVB Plan was amended to close the plan to new entrants. All active participants as of December 31, 2007 became 100% vested in their accrued benefit and, as long as they remained eligible, continued to accrue benefits until December 31, 2012. The benefits are based on years of service and the employee’s compensation. Effective December 31, 2012, the JVB Plan was amended to cease future service accruals after that date (i.e., it was frozen).

 

As a result of the FNBPA acquisition, the Company assumed sponsorship of a second defined benefit retirement plan (Retirement Plan for the First National Bank of Port Allegany (“FNB Plan”)) as of November 30, 2015, which covers substantially all former FNBPA employees that were employed prior to September 30, 2008. The FNBPA Plan was amended as of December 31, 2015 to cease future service accruals to previously unfrozen participants and is now considered to be “frozen”. Effective December 31, 2016, the FNB Plan was merged into the JVB Plan, which was amended to provide the same benefits to the class of participants previously included in the FNB Plan.

 

The Company’s funding policy with respect to the JVB Plan is to contribute annually no more than the maximum amount that can be deducted for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are intended to provide for benefits attributed to service through December 31, 2012. The Company has made no contributions in the first six months of 2017 and is not required to make a contribution in the remainder of 2017; however, it is considering doing so.

12. Commitments, Contingent Liabilities and Guarantees

 

In the ordinary course of business, the Company makes commitments to extend credit to its customers through letters of credit, loan commitments and lines of credit. At June 30, 2017, the Company had $62,442,000 outstanding in loan commitments and other unused lines of credit extended to its customers as compared to $59,984,000 at December 31, 2016.

 

The Company does not issue any guarantees that would require liability recognition or disclosure, other than its letters of credit. Letters of credit are conditional commitments issued by the Company to guarantee the performance of a customer to a third party. Generally, financial and performance letters of credit have expiration dates within one year of issuance, while commercial letters of credit have longer term commitments. The credit risk involved in issuing letters of credit is essentially the same as the risks that are involved in extending loan facilities to customers. The Company generally holds collateral and/or personal guarantees supporting these commitments. The Company had outstanding $2,227,000 and $2,300,000 of financial and performance letters of credit commitments as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. Commercial letters of credit as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 totaled $12,650,000. Management believes that the proceeds obtained through a liquidation of collateral and the enforcement of guarantees would be sufficient to cover the potential amount of future payments required under the corresponding guarantees. The amount of the liability as of June 30, 2017 for payments under letters of credit issued was not material. Because these instruments have fixed maturity dates, and because many of them will expire without being drawn upon, they do not generally present any significant liquidity risk.

 

Additionally, the Company has committed to fund and sell qualifying residential mortgage loans to the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh in the total amount of $10,000,000. As of June 30, 2017, $7,737,000 remained to be delivered on that commitment, $863,000 of which has been committed to borrowers.

 

13. Subsequent Events

 

On July 18, 2017, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.22 per share to shareholders of record on August 15, 2017, payable on September 1, 2017.

Forward Looking Statements:

 

The information contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward looking statements (as such term is defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the regulations thereunder) including statements which are not historical facts or that address trends or management's intentions, plans, beliefs, expectations or opinions.  Such forward looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties and may be affected by various factors which may cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward looking statements including, without limitation:

 

·the impact of adverse changes in the economy and real estate markets, including protracted periods of low-growth and sluggish loan demand;
·the effect of market interest rates, particularly following a period of low market interest rates and current market uncertainties, and relative balances of rate-sensitive assets to rate-sensitive liabilities, on net interest margin and net interest income;
·the effect of competition on rates of deposit and loan growth and net interest margin;
·increases in non-performing assets, which may result in increases in the allowance for credit losses, loan charge-offs and elevated collection and carrying costs related to such non-performing assets;
·the level of other income, including the impact of regulatory changes which have reduced debit card interchange revenue;
·investment securities gains and losses, including other than temporary declines in the value of securities which may result in charges to earnings;
·the level of other expenses, including salaries and employee benefit expenses;
·the increasing time and expense associated with regulatory compliance and risk management;
·the uncertainty and lack of clear regulatory guidance associated with the delay in implementing many of the regulations mandated by the Dodd Frank Act;
·capital and liquidity strategies, including the expected impact of the capital and liquidity requirements modified by the Basel III standards;
·changes in the applicable federal income tax rate that could result in the reversal of net deferred tax assets and the reduction of current tax expense;
·the Company’s potential failure to identify and to address cyber-security risks;
·the Company’s ability to keep pace with technological changes;
·the Company’s ability to attract and retain talented personnel;
·the Company’s reliance on its subsidiary for substantially all of its revenues and its ability to pay dividends;
·the effects of changes in relevant accounting principles and guidelines on the Company’s financial statements; and
·failure of third party service providers to perform their contractual obligations.

 

The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise forward looking information, whether as a result of new or updated information, future events or otherwise.  For a more complete discussion of certain risks, uncertainties and other factors affecting the Company, refer to the Company’s Risk Factors, contained in Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, a copy of which may be obtained from the Company upon request and without charge (except for the exhibits thereto), and Item 1A of Part II of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Critical Accounting Policies:

 

Disclosure of the Company’s significant accounting policies is included in the notes to the consolidated financial statements of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. Some of these policies require significant judgments, estimates, and assumptions to be made by management, most particularly in connection with determining the provision for loan losses and the appropriate level of the allowance for loan losses, as well as management’s evaluation of the investment portfolio for other-than-temporary impairment. There have been no changes in critical accounting policies since December 31, 2016.

 

General:

 

The following discussion relates to the consolidated financial condition of the Company as of June 30, 2017, as compared to December 31, 2016, and the consolidated results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to the same periods in 2016. This discussion should be read in conjunction with the interim consolidated financial statements and related notes included herein.

Overview:

 

Juniata Valley Financial Corp. is a Pennsylvania corporation organized in 1983 to be the holding company of The Juniata Valley Bank. The Bank is a state-chartered bank headquartered in Mifflintown, Pennsylvania. Juniata Valley Financial Corp. and its subsidiary bank derive substantially all of their income from banking and bank-related services, including interest earned on residential real estate, commercial mortgage, commercial and consumer loans, interest earned on investment securities and fee income from deposit services and other financial services to its customers through 15 locations in Pennsylvania. The Company completed its acquisition of FNBPA Bancorp, Inc. (“FNBPA”) on November 30, 2015, at which time total assets increased by approximately $92 million, or 19%. Juniata Valley Financial Corp. also owns 39.16% of Liverpool Community Bank (LCB), located in Liverpool, Pennsylvania. The Company accounts for LCB as an unconsolidated subsidiary using the equity method of accounting.

 

Financial Condition:

 

Total assets as of June 30, 2017, were $602.3 million, an increase of 3.8% compared to December 31, 2016. Comparing the balances at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, total deposits increased by $20.0 million, with non-interest bearing deposits increasing by $3.6 million and interest-bearing deposits increasing by $16.4 million. The Company’s investment portfolio increased by $3.1 million and borrowings decreased by $1.4 million.

 

The table below shows changes in deposit volumes by type of deposit (in thousands of dollars) between December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2017.

 

   June 30,   December 31,   Change 
   2017   2016   $   % 
Deposits:

Total deposits  $475,872   $455,822   $20,050    4.4%

 

Overall, loans increased $13.9 million, or 3.7%, between December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2017, as shown in the table below (in thousands of dollars), primarily due to increases in commercial and commercial real estate loans and loans to states and political subdivision, partially offset by reductions in residential real estate loans and construction loans.

 

   June 30,   December 31,   Change 
   2017   2016   $   % 
Loans:                    
Commercial, financial and agricultural  $49,966   $40,827   $9,139    22.4%

A summary of the activity in the allowance for loan losses for each of the six month periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 (in thousands) is presented below.

 

   Periods Ended June 30, 
   2017   2016 
Balance of allowance - January 1  $2,723   $2,478 
Loans charged off   (137)   (177)
Recoveries of loans previously charged off   50    38 
Net charge-offs   (87)   (139)
Provision for loan losses   240    234 
Balance of allowance - end of period  $2,876   $2,573 
          
Ratio of net charge-offs during period to average loans outstanding   0.02%   0.04%

 

As of June 30, 2017, 40 loans (exclusive of loans acquired from FNBPA with existing credit deterioration), with aggregate outstanding balances of $9,179,000 were individually evaluated for impairment. A collateral analysis was performed on each of these 40 loans in order to establish a portion of the reserve needed to carry impaired loans at fair value. As a result, two loans were determined to have insufficient collateral, and specific reserves, totaling $38,000, were established for the impaired loans.

 

Management believes that the specific reserves carried are adequate to cover potential future losses related to these relationships. There are no other material loans classified as loss, doubtful, substandard, or special mention which management expects to significantly impact future operating results, liquidity or capital resources.

 

Following is a summary of the Bank’s non-performing loans on June 30, 2017 as compared to December 31, 2016.

Notes:

1) Average balances were calculated using a daily average.

2) Includes interest-bearing demand and money market accounts.

3) Net margin on interest earning assets is net interest income divided by average interest earning assets.

4) Interest on obligations of states and municipalities is not subject to federal income tax. In order to make the net yield comparable on a fully taxable basis, a tax equivalent adjustment is applied against the tax-exempt income utilizing a federal tax rate of 34%.

5) Non-accruing loans are included in the above table until they are charged off.

6) The change in interest due to rate and volume has been allocated to volume and rate changes in proportion to the relationship of the absolute dollar amounts of the change in each.
