MFNC Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results Including Impact of Acquisition Activity and Capital Raise

(Manistique, Michigan) – Mackinac Financial Corporation (Nasdaq: MFNC) (the “Corporation”), the bank holding company for mBank, today announced second quarter 2018 income of $396 thousand, or $.05 per share, compared to net income of $1.68 million, or $.27 per share, for the second quarter of 2017. As expected, the 2018 second quarter results were impacted by expenses related to the acquisition of First Federal of Northern Michigan (FFNM) and pre-announcement diligence activity related to the pending Lincoln Community Bank (Lincoln) transaction. Weighted average share count was increased by a common stock offering by the Corporation in June 2018 and the issuance of shares in the FFNM acquisition.

On May 18, 2018 the Corporation completed the acquisition of FFNM. The Corporation issued 2,146,378 new shares as consideration for the purchase. On June 15, 2018, the Corporation closed a common stock offering resulting in gross proceeds of roughly $34.50 million and net proceeds of roughly $32.40 million. The Corporation issued 2,225,807 shares in connection with the stock offering. As a result of the activities noted above, weighted average shares outstanding for the second quarter of 2018 were 7,041,010 compared to 6,294,930 for the same period of 2017 and 6,304,203 shares for the first quarter of 2018.

The Corporation still expects cost efficiencies from the FFNM acquisition and the pending Lincoln acquisition to be fully phased in by the end of 2018, however, the savings relating to FFNM were only partially integrated and realized in the second quarter of 2018. The Corporation completed a successful data processing conversion of FFNM over the weekend of July 13th. The Corporation expects the pending Lincoln acquisition to close end of third quarter or early in the fourth quarter subject to final regulatory approvals with a data conversion scheduled for mid-fourth quarter.

In connection with the acquisition, the Corporation had second quarter GAAP pre-tax transaction related expenses totaling $1.98 million. These one-time costs reduced the reported net income for the quarter by $1.56 million on an after-tax basis. The adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2018 (exclusive of the transaction related expenses) would equate to $1.96 million. The majority of the expenses associated with the common stock offering were capitalized in accordance with GAAP.
