SmartFinancial reports Q1 operating EPS 39c, consensus 39c

Billy Carroll, President & CEO, stated: "This quarter we had very strong organic loan growth of over $60 million and had outstanding growth in earnings compared to the same quarter last year. Demand deposits increased significantly, while we were able to keep the costs of those deposits at very reasonable levels. As an organization we continue to improve on our efficiencies as we capture further economies of scale, highlighted by the further reduction in noninterest expense to average assets. Our team also did an outstanding job integrating the Foothills Bank acquisition during the quarter as we continue to build a great core bank."

Sandler O'Neill downgrades Entegra Financial to Hold after SmartFinancial deal
As previously reported, Sandler O'Neill analyst Peter Ruiz downgraded Entegra Financial (ENFC) to Hold from Buy after the company's announcement Tuesday of a deal to merge with SmartFinancial (SMBK). He was "somewhat surprised" that the buyout price was a modest discount to Entegra last trade prior to announcement, as he thought the scarcity value of the franchise might have justified a more significant premium, Ruiz tells investors. However, he can see the long-term strategic benefits of the combination, which will create a sizeable Southeast community franchise, he added. He lowered his price target on Entegra shares to $22 from $27.
