MANAGEMENT COMMENTS 

Rex L. Smith, III, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am pleased with the key performance metrics of the Bank as we begin to reopen and recover from the coronavirus pandemic.  Credit quality is much better than we anticipated one year ago when the pandemic began, and therefore we released a portion of our allowance for loan losses in the first quarter, which helped to increase earnings.  But even normalizing that event, the earnings for the quarter were impressive.  Net interest income continues to increase as the margin has remained stable.  Noninterest bearing deposit growth, combined with a reduction in certificates of deposits, has helped reduce our overall cost of funds."

Smith continued, "We are also participating in the second round of the PPP loan program and have originated over $45 million in new loans as we continue the forgiveness of the loans granted in the first round.  We continue to see a return to normal payments for loans that we previously granted some form of relief, but we are closely monitoring loans that are in industries still suffering from limited occupancy and travel restrictions from the pandemic.  Total loan growth was strong for the first two months of the year, but payoffs and PPP originations slowed total production for the quarter.  We still believe we will see overall loan growth in the 8% range for 2021."

Smith concluded, "The Company is poised for strong earnings going forward based on our stable margin and ability to deploy excess liquidity.  We also sold our largest and oldest foreclosed property in the second week of April, and so the amount of total nonperforming assets is significantly lower going into the second quarter.  We are very optimistic for the remainder of 2021."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Overview

Linked Quarter Basis
Net income was $6.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared with net income of $5.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Earnings per common share were $0.30 basic and fully diluted for the first quarter of 2021 and $0.24 basic and fully diluted for the fourth quarter of 2020. Provision for loan losses reflected a credit of $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared with no provision in the fourth quarter of 2020. Continued improvement in credit quality and loan risk ratings was the driver behind the recapture of previous provision. These improvements reflect a more stable economic climate in the first quarter of 2021 compared with each quarter in 2020. This is evidenced by the level of charge-offs and delinquencies, which have remained relatively low. Also, the majority of loans that were granted COVID-19 related payment relief have resumed normal payments. Net interest income increased by $79,000 in the first quarter compared with the fourth quarter of 2020. Net interest income was positively affected by a continuation of decreasing costs in interest expense, which declined $590,000 on a linked quarter basis. Interest and dividend income decreased $511,000 on a linked quarter basis. Additionally, noninterest income increased $103,000 on a linked quarter basis, led by other noninterest income, which increased $167,000, and mortgage loan income, which increased $26,000. Offsetting these improvements to net income were an increase of $16,000 in noninterest expenses, which were impacted in the first quarter of 2021 by an increase of $142,000 in other operating expenses, and an increase of $380,000 in income tax expense. Details of the linked quarter financial performance of the Company are presented below.

Year-over-Year First Quarter
Net income in the first quarter of 2021 increased $5.2 million when compared to the same period in 2020.  Net income was $6.6 million in the first quarter of 2021, with earnings per share of $0.30 basic and fully diluted.  Net income for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.4 million, with earnings per share of $0.06 basic and fully diluted. The increase in net income was driven by a change of $4.7 million in the provision for loan losses, which reflected a credit of $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared with a provision of $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2020 at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The credit in the current quarter reflected improvement in loan quality as well as loan risk ratings. Additionally, there was an increase of $1.8 million in net interest income, primarily from a decline in interest expense of $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared with the same period one year earlier. Noninterest income increased $293,000 year over year, driven by an increase of $151,000 in other noninterest income and an increase of $99,000 in mortgage loan income. Offsetting these increases to net income was an increase of $161,000 in noninterest expense and an increase of $1.4 million in income tax expense. Details of the year-over-year financial performance of the Company are presented below.

The following table presents summary income statements for the three months ended March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020.

Net Interest Income

Linked Quarter Basis
Net interest income was $14.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. This was a linked quarter increase of $79,000, or 0.6%. Interest and dividend income on a linked quarter basis decreased $511,000, or 3.1%, to $15.9 million for the first quarter of 2021.  Interest income with respect to loans, excluding PCI loans, decreased $472,000, or 3.5%, during the first quarter of 2021 when compared with the fourth quarter of 2020. This decrease in interest and fees on loans during the quarter was due to a decrease in PPP loan fees that were recognized as income when loans were forgiven by the SBA. PPP loan fees recognized as income were $609,000 in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.  PPP loan balances, $67.7 million at March 31, 2021, reflected an increase from $49.3 million at December 31, 2020 as additional loans were originated in the first quarter of 2021 under the program.

The average balance of loans, excluding PCI loans, increased by $18.2 million, or 1.6%, on a linked quarter basis, to $1.191 billion. The average balance in loans for the first quarter was influenced by the net increase of $18.4 million in PPP loans during the quarter. The yield on loans for the first quarter of 2021 was 4.48% compared with 4.61% in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The yield on all loans for each of the first quarter of 2021 and the fourth quarter of 2020 was increased by the effects of recognizing net deferred fees on forgiven PPP loans. The PPP loans carry an interest rate of 1.00% as stipulated by the SBA. Interest income with respect to PCI loans was $856,000 in the first quarter of 2021, and the corresponding yield was 14.75%. In the fourth quarter of 2020, income on PCI loans was $932,000 with a yield of 14.00%. As a result of the aforementioned activity, the yield on all loans decreased from 4.81% in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 4.68% in the first quarter of 2021. Interest income on securities was $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Interest bearing bank balances income was $60,000 in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $107,000 in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Interest income on securities on a tax-equivalent basis equaled $1.9 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The tax-equivalent yield on the securities portfolio was 2.65% in the first quarter of 2021 compared with 2.77% in the fourth quarter of 2020 based on a 21.0% income tax rate. The average balance of securities increased $23.9 million during the first quarter of 2021 as excess liquidity was invested by the Company. As a result of these changes in rate and volume, the yield on earning assets decreased from 4.22% in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 4.12% in the first quarter of 2021.

Interest expense of $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 was a decrease of $590,000, or 24.9%, on a linked quarter basis.  Interest on deposits decreased $586,000, or 27.2%. The cost of interest bearing deposits decreased from 0.77% in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 0.58% in the first quarter of 2021. This trend should continue in the second quarter of 2021 as $91.0 million in certificates of deposit, or 16.9% of all certificates, will mature. These deposits were paying a weighted average rate of 1.02% at March 31, 2021. Interest on FHLB and other borrowings, were $217,000 for the first quarter of 2021 and $221,000 in the fourth quarter of 2020. The cost of these borrowings decreased from 1.31% in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 1.26% in the first quarter of 2021. The Company's cost of interest bearing liabilities of 0.62% in the first quarter of 2021 was a decrease of 18 basis points from the prior quarter when the cost of interest bearing liabilities was 0.80%. 

With the changes in net interest income noted above, the tax-equivalent net interest margin increased on a linked quarter basis and was 3.66% in the first quarter of 2021 compared with 3.61% in the fourth quarter of 2020. The interest spread was 3.50% for the current quarter compared with 3.42% in the prior quarter. The Company also examined the effects on the net interest margin without the effects of PPP fees, interest income and average balances. Excluding these PPP related items from the net interest margin calculation would have resulted in a margin of 3.59% in the first quarter of 2021 compared with the actual margin of 3.66%. Excluding the PPP related items from the net interest margin calculation would have resulted in a margin of 3.43% for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with the actual margin of 3.61%.  The yield on the loan portfolio would have been 4.43% in the first quarter of 2021 when excluding the PPP related items versus the actual yield of 4.48% with the PPP related items, and the yield on earning assets would have been 4.07% without the PPP related items as opposed to the actual yield of 4.12% when including the PPP related items.

Year-Over-Year First Quarter
Net interest income increased $1.8 million, or 15.0%, from the first quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021. Net interest income was $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $12.2 million for the same period in 2020.  Interest and dividend income decreased $86,000, or 0.5%, over this time period. In the first quarter of 2021, $609,000 in PPP origination fees were recognized as income versus none in the same period of 2020. Interest and fees on loans were $13.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $64,000, or 0.5%, over the same period in 2020. Interest and fees on PCI loans decreased by $241,000 and were $856,000 in the first quarter of 2021. Securities income was $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $100,000 over the same period in 2020. Interest on deposits in other banks decreased by $9,000 year over year.

The average balance of the loan portfolio, excluding PCI loans, increased by $126.1 million year over year and averaged $1.191 billion for the first quarter of 2021. The average balance of the PCI portfolio declined $8.1 million during the year-over-year comparison period. The average balance of total earning assets increased $224.2 million, or 16.7%, from the first quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021. The yield on earning assets decreased from 4.78% in the first quarter of 2020 to 4.12% in the first quarter of 2021. The yield on earning assets was the culmination of decreases in the yield on all loans, from 5.19% in the first quarter of 2020 to 4.68% in the first quarter of 2021, in the tax-equivalent yield on securities, from 3.08% in the first quarter of 2020 to 2.65% in the first quarter of 2021, and in the yield on interest bearing bank balances, from 1.68% to 0.34% year over year.

Interest expense decreased $1.9 million, or 51.9%, when comparing the first quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2020. Interest expense on deposits decreased $1.9 million, or 54.2%, as the cost declined from 1.34% in the first quarter of 2020 to 0.58% for the same period in 2021.  The average balance of interest bearing deposits increased $70.4 million, or 6.9%. This growth was from non-maturity deposit sources. First, there was an increase of $80.6 million, or 47.3%, in the average balance of interest bearing checking, which averaged $250.9 million in the first quarter of 2021. Additionally, there was an increase of $72.1 million in the average balance of savings and money market accounts from the first quarter of 2020 to the same period in 2021. Offsetting these increases was a decrease in the average balance of time deposits of $82.4 million, to $550.3 million for the first quarter of 2021. FHLB and other borrowings benefited from a decrease in cost from 1.58% in the first quarter of 2020 to 1.26% in the first quarter of 2021.  All of the above contributed to the reduction of interest expense for interest bearing liabilities by $1.9 million despite an increase of $69.0 million in the average amount outstanding. Also noteworthy is that, although not an interest bearing category, a sizeable amount of funding was generated in the first quarter of 2021 by a year-over-year average balance increase of $139.1 million in noninterest bearing deposits. The amount of liquidity in the banking system, along with lower interest rates and a shift in deposit balances, decreased the cost of interest bearing liabilities from 1.36% in the first quarter of 2020 to 0.62% in the first quarter of 2021.

The tax-equivalent net interest margin decreased two basis points, from 3.68% in the first quarter of 2020 to 3.66% in the first quarter of 2021. Conversely, the interest spread increased from 3.42% to 3.50% over the same time period.  The decrease in the margin was precipitated by a decrease of 66 basis points in the yield on earning assets compared with a decline of 74 basis points in the cost of interest bearing liabilities applied against growth of $224.2 million, or 16.7%, in earning assets. As noted in the linked quarter discussion, without the effects of PPP related items the net interest margin would have been 3.59% in the first quarter of 2021.

The following table compares the Company's net interest margin, on a tax-equivalent basis, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company records a separate provision for loan losses for its loan portfolio, excluding PCI loans, and the PCI loan portfolio.  There was a recovery of $1.4 million of provision for loan losses on the loan portfolio, excluding PCI loans, in the first quarter of 2021. This compares with no provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2020 and a provision of $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2020.  

The recovery of provision recorded in the first quarter of 2021 was due to continued improvement in the quality of the loan portfolio and an overall improvement in the risks associated with the potential economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning in the first quarter of 2020, management performs a review of each loan within the portfolio to identify, and monitor on a going forward basis, those borrowers that management believed to be possibly impacted by the economy. Loans identified with increased risk are aggregated by loan type. During the first quarter of 2020, this analysis indicated a risk grade migration in a number of loan categories that led to a heightened risk level in the loan portfolio. The impact of the loans' risk grade migration was applied to the allowance for loan loss calculation, which led to the provision for loan losses of $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2020. The Company determined that no provision was necessary for the fourth quarter of 2020 after a similar analysis and review process. Despite the stay-at-home orders, shut downs, higher than historical unemployment levels and slow growth, the loan portfolio has exhibited a trend over the last year of lower nonaccrual loans, lower other real estate loans and very low charge-offs.

With respect to the PCI portfolio, no provision was recorded during the first quarter of 2020 or 2019 due to the stable nature of the portfolio's performance. Additional discussion of loan quality is presented below.

Noninterest Income

Linked Quarter Basis
Noninterest income was $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, a $103,000 increase compared with the fourth quarter of 2020. Other noninterest income increased $167,000 on a linked quarter basis and was $447,000 for the first quarter of 2021. This increase was driven by an increase in insurance commissions of $143,000 in the first quarter of 2021 compared with the prior quarter. Mortgage loan income also increased, $26,000 on a linked quarter basis, and was $320,000 in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $294,000 in the prior quarter. Gains on securities transactions, net were $16,000 in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $3,000 in the fourth quarter of 2020. Offsetting these linked quarter increases was a decrease of $98,000 in service charges and fees, which were $679,000 for the first quarter of 2021. Fourth quarter 2020 service charges and fees were boosted by a one-time payment of $102,000 received for account interchange fees. Income on bank owned life insurance was $166,000 in the first quarter of 2021, a decrease of $5,000 on a linked quarter basis.

Year-Over-Year First Quarter
Noninterest income of $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2021 was an increase of $293,000, or 21.9%, over the first quarter of 2020. Other noninterest income of $447,000 in the first quarter of 2021 was an increase of $151,000 over the same period in 2020, driven by an increase in insurance commission. Mortgage loan income of $320,000 was an increase of $99,000 year over year. Gains/(losses) on securities transactions increased $55,000 year over year, and service charges on deposit accounts of $679,000 in the first quarter of 2021 were an increase of $7,000. Offsetting these increases to noninterest income were a decrease of $11,000 in gain on sale of loans, of which there were none in the current quarter, and a decrease of $8,000 in income on bank owned life insurance, which was $166,000 in the first quarter of 2021, year over year.

Noninterest Expenses

Linked Quarter Basis
Noninterest expenses totaled $8.8 million for the first quarter of 2021, as compared with $8.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, a nominal increase of $16,000, or 0.2%. Other operating expenses increased $142,000, from $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 to $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2021. Occupancy expenses increased by $78,000, from $758,000 in the fourth quarter of 2020 to $836,000 in the first quarter of 2021. FDIC assessment of $212,000 in the first quarter of 2021 was a linked quarter increase of $28,000. Offsetting these increases to noninterest expenses was a decrease of $124,000 in salaries and employee benefits, which were $5.2 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Other real estate expenses, net were $11,000, a linked quarter decrease of $52,000.

Year-Over-Year First Quarter
Noninterest expenses were $8.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. This is an increase of $161,000, or 1.9%, from noninterest expenses of $8.6 million for the first quarter of 2020. The largest component of the increase was an increase in FDIC assessment, which was $212,000 in the first quarter of 2021 compared with $125,000 in the first quarter of 2020. Other noninterest expenses were $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $72,000 over the same quarter one year earlier. Salaries and employee benefits of $5.2 million in the first quarter of 2021 increased $56,000 over the first quarter of 2020.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $1.7 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared with income tax expense of $1.3 million and $264,000 for the fourth quarter of 2020 and first quarter of 2020, respectively. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2021 was 20.5% compared with 19.6% for the fourth quarter of 2020 and 15.7% for the first quarter of 2020. The increase in the effective tax rate in the first quarter of 2021 compared with the two comparative periods in 2020 was the result of a higher deduction related to stock option exercises in 2020.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Total assets were $1.699 billion at March 31, 2021 and increased $54.1 million, or 3.3%, when compared with December 31, 2020.  Total loans, excluding PCI loans, were $1.203 billion at March 31, 2021, increasing $20.4 million, or 1.7%, from year end 2020. The March 31, 2021 loan total includes $67.7 million in PPP loans, net of fees. PPP loans, net of fees, were $49.3 million at December 31, 2020. Total PCI loans were $22.5 million at March 31, 2020 versus $24.0 million at December 31, 2020.

At March 31, 2021, there were $44.5 million in loans under COVID-19 related payment relief. The Company had provided aggregate COVID-19 related payment relief on loans totaling $192.6 million through March 31, 2021.  PCI loans comprised $13.2 million of this total at March 31, 2021. As of March 31, 2021 regular payments have resumed on $148.1 million of these loans, of which PCI comprised $11.8 million. Through March 31, 2021, the Company had re-extended this payment relief on $57.6 million of these loans, $2.0 million of which were within the PCI portfolio. At March 31, 2021, $16.1 million in loans were in first time payment relief status.

Loans, net of fees that the Bank originated under the PPP were $67.7 million at March 31, 2021 compared with $49.3 million at December 31, 2020 and were $83.5 million at June 30, 2020 during the peak of PPP activity. All of these balances are included in commercial loans.  As a result of the economic conditions that existed during 2020 and early 2021, commercial loans, excluding PPP loans, declined by $4.0 million from December 31, 2020 and $26.5 million since March 31, 2020. Commercial real estate loans, the largest category of loans at $504.8 million, or 42.0% of gross loans outstanding at March 31, 2021 increased $30.0 million during the first quarter of 2021. This category increased $94.4 million, or 23.0%, from March 31, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Construction and land development loans, totaling $161.8 million, decreased by $20.5 million, or 11.2%, during the first quarter of 2021 but grew $12.0 million, or 8.0%, year over year. Residential 1 – 4 family loans declined during the first quarter of 2021 by $12.9 million and ended the period at $184.3 million, or 15.3% of the portfolio. This category declined by $35.4 million from March 31, 2020 when it was $219.7 million and 20.4% of the portfolio, as more of the home loans originated by the Bank are sold on the secondary market through its mortgage division, as evidenced by the increase in mortgage loan income in noninterest income.

The following table shows the composition of the Company's loan portfolio, excluding PCI loans, at March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020.

The Company's securities portfolio, excluding restricted equity securities, was $293.4 million at March 31, 2021 and increased $874,000 during the first quarter of 2021 and $66.0 million since March 31, 2020. U.S. Treasury issues decreased by $15.7 million during the first quarter of 2021 as excess liquidity was invested short term in very liquid and low risk instruments during the fourth quarter of 2020 and deployed in longer term securities during the first quarter of 2021. U.S. Government agencies increased $10.3 million during the first quarter of 2021 and were $36.1 million at March 31, 2021. Asset backed securities, consisting of student loan pools 97% guaranteed by the U.S. Government, increased $9.2 million during the first quarter of 2021 and were $46.7 million at March 31, 2021. State, county and municipal securities, the largest investment category totaling $144.9 million at March 31, 2021, decreased by $2.0 million during the first quarter of 2021. Corporate securities were $25.6 million at March 31, 2021.

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $95.4 million at March 31, 2021 compared with $63.2 million at year end 2020, an increase of $32.2 million. The majority of this category growth, $29.2 million, occurred in interest bearing bank balances, which were $74.3 million at March 31, 2021, as large amounts of liquidity have been funneled into the banking system through the facilitation of PPP loans by the banking industry and stimulus checks issued by the U.S. Treasury under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the "CARES Act").  

The following table shows the composition of the Company's securities portfolio, excluding equity securities, restricted, at March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020.

Interest bearing deposits at March 31, 2021 were $1.105 billion, an increase of $5.6 million, or 0.5%, from December 31, 2020. Interest bearing checking accounts of $261.5 million grew by $21.9 million, or 9.1%, during the first quarter of 2021 and $95.4 million, or 57.4%, year over year. Money market deposit accounts were $171.9 million at March 31, 2021 and grew $17.4 million, or 11.3%, during the first quarter of 2021 and $48.5 million, or 39.3%, year over year. Savings accounts totaled $137.5 million at March 31, 2021 and grew $13.1 million, or 10.6%, during the first quarter of 2021. Strong growth in these non-maturity categories for the year has allowed the Bank to react to lower interest rates through proactive repricing in certificates of deposit, the highest costing deposit category.  As a result, there has been a decline in time deposits less than or equal to $250,000, which decreased by $30.5 million, or 6.7%, in the first quarter of 2021 and were $422.4 million at March 31, 2021.Year over year, time deposits less than or equal to $250,000 declined $84.4 million, or 16.6%. Time deposits over $250,000 declined $16.4 million in the first quarter of 2021 and were $112.0 million at March 31, 2021. Year over year, time deposits over $250,000 declined by $24.9 million, or 18.2%. Time deposit balances combined were 48.3% of interest bearing deposits at March 31, 2021 and 37.1% of all deposit balances. This is a decline from 52.9% of interest bearing balances and 41.6% of all deposit balances at December 31, 2020. At March 31, 2020, time deposit balances were 62.3% of interest bearing deposits and 52.7% of all deposit balances. The growth in interest bearing checking accounts, money market accounts and savings accounts, as well as in noninterest bearing checking, was $87.5 million during the first quarter of 2021 and $327.5 million since March 31, 2020. A portion of this growth was associated with the PPP loans originated during 2020 and 2021 and stimulus checks issued under the CARES Act, as well as previously postponed business activity that resulted from the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.

The following table compares the mix of interest bearing deposits at March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020.

FHLB borrowings were $67.7 million at March 31, 2021 compared with $57.8 million at December 31, 2020 and $58.3 million at March 31, 2020. The stable level of FHLB borrowings during 2020 and into 2021 has been due to the FHLB swiftly responding to the March 16, 2020 rate cut of 1.50% to the discount rate by repricing advances downward to ensure low cost liquidity for the banking system. As a result, the Bank has found this level of borrowing to be a stable source of low cost funding. The average rate paid on FHLB borrowings was 1.26% during the first quarter of 2021. There were no Federal funds purchased at March 31, 2021 or December 31, 2020.    

Shareholders' equity was $172.5 million at March 31, 2021, or 10.2% of total assets, compared with $169.7 million, or 10.3% of total assets, at December 31, 2020. The Company repurchased 299,700 shares of common stock at a total cost of $2.1 million during 2020 and 31,100 share for a total cost of $217,000 during the first quarter of 2021.

Asset Quality – excluding PCI loans

Nonperforming loans were $3.5 million at March 31, 2021, a decrease of $27,000 from December 31, 2020. Nonperforming loans declined $1.6 million year over year. Total non-performing assets totaled $7.8 million at March 31, 2021 compared with $7.9 million at December 31, 2020. Non-performing assets declined $1.8 million, or 19.0%, year over year. There were net charge-offs of $112,000 in the first quarter of 2021.  

The allowance for loan losses equaled 309.6% of nonaccrual loans at March 31, 2021 compared with 351.4% at December 31, 2020. The ratio of nonperforming assets to loans and other real estate owned (OREO) was 0.65% at March 31, 2021 compared with 0.67% at December 31, 2020.

The allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.90% at March 31, 2021 compared with 1.04% at December 31, 2020 and 1.10% at March 31, 2020. The volume of PPP loans originated since the second quarter of 2020 impacted the ratio.  PPP loans, net of fees, were $67.7 million at March 31, 2021 and $49.3 million at December 31, 2020. These loans are fully guaranteed by the SBA in accordance with the CARES Act; therefore, no allowance is required. The Company monitors and adjusts the allowance for loan losses based on loans requiring a reserve.  The allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding the PPP loans would have reflected a level of coverage 0.95% at March 31, 2021 and 1.09% at December 31, 2020

The following table reconciles the activity in the Company's allowance for loan losses, by quarter, for the past five quarters.
