ONEIDA FINANCIAL CORP.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)
September 30, 2014
 
Note A — Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include Oneida Financial Corp. (the “Company”), a Maryland corporation, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Oneida Savings Bank (the “Bank”), as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 and for the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013.  All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.  The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates, assumptions, and judgments that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes.  These estimates, assumptions, and judgments are based on information available through the date of the filing of the financial statements; accordingly, as this information changes, the financial statements could reflect different estimates, assumptions, and judgments.  Certain policies inherently have a greater reliance on the use of estimates, assumptions, and judgments and as such have a greater possibility of producing results that could be materially different than originally reported.  Based on the valuation techniques used and the sensitivity of financial statement amounts to the methods, assumptions, and estimates underlying those amounts, management has identified the determination of the allowance for loan losses, the fair value of trading securities and investment securities and the evaluation of other-than-temporary impairment on securities whose fair value is less than amortized cost to be the accounting areas that require the most subjective or complex judgments, and as such could be most subject to revision as new information becomes available.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  In the opinion of management, the unaudited consolidated financial statements include all necessary adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation for the periods presented.  The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for the remainder of 2014
 
The data in the consolidated statements of condition for December 31, 2013 was derived from the audited financial statements included in the Company’s 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.  That data, along with the interim financial information presented in the consolidated statement of condition, statements of operations, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows should be read in conjunction with the 2013 consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Amounts in the prior period’s consolidated financial statements are reclassified when necessary to conform with the current period’s presentation.  Reclassifications did not impact prior period’s net income or stockholders’ equity.

Note B — Earnings per Share
 
Basic earnings per share is net income available to common shareholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period excluding participating securities. ESOP shares are considered outstanding for the calculation unless unearned.  Diluted earnings per common share includes the dilutive effect of additional potential common shares issuable under stock plans. All outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain rights to nonforfeitable dividends are considered participating securities and are included in the computation of earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. The Company has determined that 78,000 of its 153,000 outstanding non-vested stock awards are participating securities. Earnings and dividends per share are restated for all stock splits and stock dividends through the date of issuance of the financial statements.
 
Earnings per common share have been computed based on the following for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013:
 
Three Months Ended
 
Nine Months Ended

As of November 30, 2013, the Company transferred securities totaling $98.9 million with unrealized losses of $4.3 million from available-for-sale to the held-to-maturity portfolio. These securities were transferred to help mitigate interest rate risk on the most price sensitive securities. As a result, the securities are carried at fair value at the time of transfer, which established a new amortized cost basis for book, and the difference between par value of the securities and fair value at the date of transfer will be accreted as an adjustment of yield.

The amortized cost and fair value of the investment securities portfolio at September 30, 2014 are shown by contractual maturities.  Expected maturities will differ from contractual maturities because borrowers may have the right to call or prepay obligations with or without call or prepayment penalties. Securities not due at a single maturity date are shown separately.

Declines in the fair value of securities below their cost that are other-than-temporary are reflected as realized losses.  The Company evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) on at least a quarterly basis, and more frequently when economic or market conditions warrant such an evaluation.  For securities in an unrealized loss position, management considers the extent and duration of the unrealized loss, and the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer. Management also assesses whether it intends to sell, or it is more likely than not that it will be required to sell, a security in an unrealized loss position before recovery of its amortized cost basis.  If either of the criteria regarding intent or requirement to sell is met, the entire difference between amortized cost and fair value is recognized as impairment through earnings.  For debt securities that do not meet the aforementioned criteria, the amount of the impairment is split into two components as follows:  1) OTTI related to credit loss, which must be recognized in the income statement and 2) OTTI related to other factors, which is recognized in other comprehensive income.  The credit loss is defined as the difference between the present value of the cash flows expected to be collected and the amortized cost basis.
 
In order to determine OTTI for purchased beneficial interests that, on the purchase date, were not highly rated, the Company compares the present value of the remaining cash flows as estimated at the preceding evaluation date to the current expected remaining cash flows.  OTTI is deemed to have occurred if there has been an adverse change in the remaining expected future cash flows.
 
As of September 30, 2014, the Company’s security portfolio consisted of 374 securities, 75 of which were in an unrealized loss position. The majority of the unrealized losses are related to the Company’s agency, mortgage-backed securities, state and municipal, and corporate securities as discussed below.

U.S. Agency and Agency Mortgage-Backed Securities
 
Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae and the Small Business Administration guarantee the contractual cash flows of our agency and mortgage-backed securities. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are institutions which the government has affirmed its commitment to support.  Our Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.  All of the agency mortgage-backed securities are residential mortgage-backed securities. At September 30, 2014, of the 51 U.S. Government sponsored enterprise agency and mortgage-backed securities in an unrealized loss position, twenty-five were in a continuous unrealized loss position for 12 months or more.  The unrealized losses at September 30, 2014 were primarily attributable to changes in interest rates and illiquidity, and not credit quality.  The Company does not have the intent to sell these agency and mortgage-backed securities and it is likely that it will not be required to sell the securities before their anticipated recovery. The Company does not consider these securities to be other-than-temporarily impaired at September 30, 2014.
 
Corporate Debt, Agency Asset Backed and Municipal Securities
 
At September 30, 2014, of the 24 corporate debt and municipal securities in an unrealized loss position, thirteen were in a continuous unrealized loss position of 12 months or more.  We have assessed these securities and determined that the decline in fair value was temporary. In making this determination, we considered the period of time the securities were in a loss position, the percentage decline in comparison with the securities’ amortized cost, the financial condition of the issuer, and the delinquency or default rates based on the applicable bond ratings.  In addition, we do not have the intent to sell these securities and it is likely that we will not be required to sell these securities before the recovery of their amortized cost basis, which may be at maturity.  Included in the thirteen securities whose unrealized loss position exceeds 12 months was a $2.5 million Strats-Goldman Sachs Corporation obligation, maturing February 15, 2034 which is a variable rate note based on the 6 month libor. The current rate on the security is 1.33%.  The unrealized loss was $1,041,000 and $1,116,000 at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.  In addition to the items noted above, we reviewed capital ratios, public filings of the issuer and related trust documents in the review of the unrealized loss.  The Strats-Goldman Sachs Corporation obligation is paying as agreed.  The other twelve securities in a continuous unrealized loss position were finance sector corporate debt securities and municipal securities all rated above investment grade at September 30, 2014, that have maturities ranging from 2021 to 2034.  The Company does not consider these securities to be other-than-temporarily impaired at September 30, 2014.

Trust Preferred Securities
 
The Company had $1.0 million invested in two trust preferred securities which had unrealized gains of $1.9 million as of June 30, 2014. The two trust preferred securities ,which had a principal balance of $906,000 were sold and a gain of $2,043,000 was recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2014. The Company had no investments in trust preferred securities as of September 30, 2014. The Company had $1.0 million invested in two trust preferred securities as of December 31, 2013 which had unrealized gains of $1.5 million.

Payments received on these trust preferred securities totaling $147,000 and $1.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 respectively, were applied to principal. The Company realized $158,000 and $273,000 of interest income on these securities for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 respectively and realized a $2,043,000 gain on sale for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014.  The interest income realized was based on estimated cash flows. Both of the trust preferred securities were pooled issuances. Prior to December 2013, the company had owned nine trust preferred securities of which seven were sold/liquidated during the year resulting in a net gain of $92,000 on the sales. Six of the securities were considered nonaccrual during 2013.

The allowance for loan losses is a valuation allowance for probable incurred credit losses.  Loan losses are charged against the allowance when management believes the uncollectibility of a loan balance is confirmed.  Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance.  Management estimates the allowance balance required using past loan loss experience, the nature and volume of the portfolio, information about specific borrower situations and estimated collateral values, economic conditions, and other factors.  Allocation of the allowance may be made for specific loans, but the entire allowance is available for any loan that, in management’s judgment, should be charged off.  The allowance consists of specific and general components.  The specific component relates to loans that are individually classified as impaired.
 
A loan is considered impaired, when, based on current information and events, it is probable that the Bank will be unable to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement.  Loans for which the terms have been modified resulting in a concession, and for which the borrower is experiencing financial difficulties, are considered troubled debt restructurings and classified as impaired.

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 loan 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.
 
If a loan is impaired, a portion of the allowance is allocated so that the loan is reported, net, at the present value of estimated future cash flows using the loan’s existing rate or the fair value of collateral if repayment is expected solely from collateral.  Large groups of smaller balance homogeneous loans, such as consumer and residential real estate loans are collectively evaluated for impairment, and accordingly, they are not separately identified for impairment disclosures.
 
Troubled debt restructurings are separately identified for impairment disclosures and are measured at the present value of estimated future cash flows using the loan's effective rate at inception.  If a troubled debt restructuring is considered to be a collateral dependent loan, the loan is reported, net at the fair value of the collateral.  For the troubled debt restructurings that subsequently default, the Company determines the amount of reserve in accordance with the accounting policy for the allowance for loan losses.
 
The general component covers non-impaired loans and is based on historical loss experience adjusted for current factors.  The historical loss experience is determined by portfolio segment and is based on the actual loss history experienced by the Company over the most recent three years.  This actual loss experience is supplemented with other economic factors based on the risks present for each portfolio segment.  These economic factors include consideration of the following: levels of and trends in delinquencies and impaired loans; levels of and trends in charge-offs and recoveries; trends in volume and terms of loans; effects of any changes in risk selection and underwriting standards; other changes in lending policies, procedures, and practices; experience, ability and depth of lending management and other relevant staff; national and local economic trends and conditions; industry conditions; and effects of changes in credit concentrations.  The following portfolio segments have been identified:  commercial loans, commercial real estate loans, consumer loans, home equity loans and residential mortgages.

Commercial business lending generally involves greater risk than residential mortgage lending and involves risks that are different from those associated with residential and commercial real estate lending. Real estate lending is generally considered to be collateral based, with loan amounts based on predetermined loan to collateral values and liquidation of the underlying real estate collateral is viewed as the primary source of repayment in the event of borrower default. Although commercial business loans may be collateralized by equipment or other business assets, the liquidation of collateral in the event of a borrower default is often an insufficient source of repayment because equipment and other business assets may be obsolete or of limited use, among other things. Accordingly, the repayment of a commercial business loan depends primarily on the creditworthiness of the borrower (and any guarantors), while liquidation of collateral is a secondary and often insufficient source of repayment.

Loans secured by commercial real estate and multi-family residential properties generally are larger than one-to-four family residential loans and involve a greater degree of risk. Commercial and multi-family residential mortgage loans often involve large loan balances to single borrowers or groups of related borrowers. Payments on these loans depend to a large degree on the results of operations and management of the properties or underlying businesses, and may be affected to a greater extent by adverse conditions in the real estate market or the economy in general. Accordingly, the nature of commercial real estate loans makes them more difficult for management to monitor and evaluate.
 
Consumer loans generally have shorter terms and higher interest rates than one-to-four family mortgage loans. In addition, consumer loans expand the products and services we offer to meet the financial services needs of our customers. Consumer loans generally involve greater credit risk than residential mortgage loans because of the difference in the underlying collateral.  Repossessed collateral for a defaulted consumer loan may not provide an adequate source of repayment of the outstanding loan balance because of the greater likelihood of damage to, loss of, or depreciation in the underlying collateral. The remaining deficiency often does not warrant further substantial collection efforts against the borrower beyond obtaining a deficiency judgment. In addition, consumer loan collections depend on the borrower’s personal financial stability. Furthermore, the application of various federal and state laws, including federal and state bankruptcy and insolvency laws, may limit the amount that can be recovered on such loans.

Home equity loans are secured by a borrower’s primary residence.  Home equity loans are underwritten under the same criteria that we use to underwrite one-to-four family fixed-rate loans. Home equity loans may be underwritten with a loan to value ratio of 90% when combined with the principal balance of an existing mortgage loan.  Home equity loans generally involve greater credit risk than the primary residential mortgage loans due to the potential of declines in collateral values, collectability as a result of foreclosure processes if the Bank is considered to be in a secondary position as well as the amount of expenses incurred during the process.
 
Residential real estate loans have as collateral a borrower’s primary residence.  The risk of loss on these loans would be due to collateral deficiencies due to market deterioration or location and condition of the property.  The foreclosure process of a primary residence is usually the final course of action on these types of loans. Given our underwriting criteria and the volume and balance of the loans as compared to collateral, the risk in this portfolio segment is lower than that of the other segments.

The recorded investment in loans excludes accrued interest receivable and loan origination fees, net, due to immateriality.
