Sun Bancorp, Inc. Plans to Realign its Branch Offices
Mar 31 15
Sun Bancorp Inc. announced the Bank's plan to realign its branch offices, which will include the consolidation of nine branches into nearby locations, as well as the sale of one branch office. The Bank is announcing an agreement of sale with Cape Bank for the sale of the Sun branch office in Hammonton, NJ. This branch, with approximately $34.1 million in deposits and approximately $4.9 million in local branch loans, will be sold for a premium on deposits of 4% to be calculated at closing. The loans will be sold at book value and the fixed assets, including the facility, will be sold at fair market value. The transaction is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2015, subject to Cape Bank's receipt of regulatory approvals as well as customary closing conditions. Additionally, nine Sun branch locations across seven counties will be merged into eight nearby Sun branches. This planned consolidation of the branch network is a result of the Bank's county-by-county evaluation of market growth potential, cost efficiencies, and the Bank's ability to service clients through nearby branches and surcharge-free ATMs, as well as online and mobile channels. The consolidation of these nine locations and the Hammonton branch sale to Cape Bank are expected to result in an annualized pre-tax cost savings of approximately $4.6 million. One-time charges related to the branch consolidation are estimated to be up to $4.0 million and will be fully recognized in the financial results for the first quarter of 2015. The Bank also anticipates recognizing a gross gain on sale of approximately $1.4 million as a result of the Hammonton branch sale to Cape Bank. After adjustments for the book value of branch loans and fair market value of the facility, the Bank expects a net gain on sale of approximately $0.5 million after completion of this transaction. In total, the Company anticipates that its overall branch rationalization efforts, including consolidations and sales since 2014, will have resulted in a 39% reduction in branch locations, an annualized direct expense reduction of approximately $10 million, an increase in the average deposit base of its remaining 31 branch locations, and net gain of approximately $6.5 million.
