SEACOAST BANKING CORPORATION OF FLORIDA AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Note A – Basis of Presentation
Basis of Presentation: The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida and its subsidiaries (the "Company") have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020 or any other period. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.
Use of Estimates: The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires management to make judgments in the application of certain of its accounting policies that involve significant estimates and assumptions. The Company has established policies and control procedures that are intended to ensure valuation methods are well controlled and applied consistently from period to period. These estimates and assumptions, which may materially affect the reported amounts of certain assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, are based on information available as of the date of the financial statements, and changes in this information over time and the use of revised estimates and assumptions could materially affect amounts reported in subsequent financial statements. Specific areas, among others, requiring the application of management’s estimates include determination of the allowance for credit losses, acquisition accounting and purchased loans, intangible assets and impairment testing, other fair value adjustments, income taxes and realization of deferred tax assets and contingent liabilities.
Adoption of new accounting pronouncements:
On January 1, 2020, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification Topic 326 Financial Instruments - Credit Losses ("ASC Topic 326") which replaces the incurred loss methodology with an expected loss methodology that is referred to as the current expected credit loss ("CECL") methodology. The measurement of expected credit losses under the CECL methodology is applicable to financial assets measured at amortized cost, including loan receivables and held-to-maturity ("HTM") debt securities. It also applies to off-balance sheet credit exposure such as loan commitments, standby letters of credit, financial guarantees and other similar instruments. In addition, ASC Topic 326 changed the accounting for impairment of available-for-sale ("AFS") debt securities.
The Company adopted ASC Topic 326 using the modified retrospective method for all financial assets measured at amortized cost and off-balance sheet credit exposures. Results for the reporting period beginning after January 1, 2020 are presented under ASC Topic 326, while prior period amounts continue to be reported in accordance with previously applicable GAAP. The following table reflects the cumulative effect of adoption:
(in thousands)December 31, 2019CECL adoption impactJanuary 1, 2020
Loans$5,198,404 $(706)$5,197,698 
Allowance for credit losses35,154 21,226 56,380 
Reserve for unfunded commitments140 1,837 1,977 
Deferred tax assets16,457 (5,481)10,976 
Retained earnings195,813 (16,876)178,937 
ASC Topic 326 introduced new definitions and criteria for categorizing purchased loans. Loans that, as of the date of acquisition, have experienced a more-than-insignificant deterioration in credit quality since origination are classified as purchased credit deteriorated ("PCD"). Acquired loans which do not meet the definition of PCD are classified by the Company as acquired Non-PCD. At the date of adoption, the Company reclassified all loans previously classified as purchased credit impaired ("PCI") to PCD, and increased the allowance by $0.7 million with a corresponding adjustment to these loans' amortized cost basis. The remaining noncredit discount on loans previously classified as PCI was $0.9 million, which will be accreted into interest income over the remaining life of the loans.
9

Under CECL, the Company estimates the allowance using relevant available information, from both internal and external sources, relating to past events, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. Historical credit losses provide the basis for the estimation of expected credit losses. Adjustments to historical loss information are made for differences in current loan-specific risk characteristics such as differences in underwriting standards, portfolio mix, delinquency level, loan to value ratios, borrower credit characteristics, loan seasoning or term as well as for changes in environmental conditions, such as changes in unemployment rates, property values, occupancy rates, and other macroeconomic metrics.
For loans analyzed on a collective basis, the Company has developed an allowance model based on an analysis of the probability of default ("PD") and loss given default ("LGD") to determine an expected loss by loan segment. PDs and LGDs are developed by analyzing the average historical loss migration of loans to default. The Company excludes accrued interest on loans from its determination of allowance.
The allowance estimation process also applies an economic forecast scenario over a three year forecast period. The forecast may utilize one scenario or a composite of scenarios based on management's judgment and expectations around the current and future macroeconomic outlook. Expected credit losses are estimated over the contractual term of the loans, adjusted for expected prepayments when appropriate. The contractual term excludes expected extensions, renewals, and modification unless either of the following applies: management has a reasonable expectation at the reporting date that a troubled debt restructuring ("TDR") will be executed with an individual borrower, or the extension or renewal options are explicitly stated in the contract and are not unconditionally under the control of the Company. For portfolio segments with a weighted average life longer than three years, the Company reverts to longer-term historical loss experience, adjusted for prepayments, to estimate losses over the remaining life of the loans within each segment.
Adjustments may be made to baseline reserves based on an assessment of internal and external influences on credit quality not fully reflected in the quantitative components of the allowance model. These influences may include elements such as changes in concentration, macroeconomic conditions, recent observable asset quality trends, staff turnover, regional market conditions, employment levels and loan growth. Based on management's assessments of these factors, the Company may apply qualitative adjustments to the allowance.
Loans that do not share risk characteristics are evaluated on an individual basis. Loans evaluated individually are not also included in the collective evaluation. Loans evaluated individually are collateral dependent and primarily secured by real estate. When management determines that foreclosure is probable, expected credit losses are based on the fair value of the collateral at the reporting date, adjusted for selling costs as appropriate.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic beginning in early 2020, rules defined in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security ("CARES") Act and a joint statement issued by federal regulators in consultation with FASB provide financial institutions with the option not to apply troubled debt restructure ("TDR") accounting to eligible loan modifications provided to borrowers affected by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. See Note E - Loans for information on loan modifications offered by the Company under this guidance. Outside of this guidance, a loan for which the terms have been modified resulting in a concession, and for which the borrower is experiencing financial difficulty, is considered to be a TDR. The allowance for credit losses on a TDR is measured using the same method as all other loans held for investment, except when the value of a concession cannot be measured using a method other than the discounted cash flow method. When the value of a concession is measured using the discounted cash flow method, the allowance for credit losses is determined by discounting the expected future cash flows at the original interest rate of the loan.
The Company estimates a reserve for unfunded commitments, which is reported separately from the allowance for credit losses within other liabilities. The reserve is based upon the same quantitative and qualitative factors applied to the collectively evaluated loan portfolio.
All HTM debt securities are issued by government-sponsored entities, which are either explicitly or implicitly guaranteed by the U.S. government and have a long history of no credit losses. In addition, the credit rating on all the Company's HTM debt securities as of the date of adoption is AA+. There is no history of the government withholding or limiting support to these agencies, nor is there any indication of a change to that historical support. While the potential for default on these securities may be something greater than zero, the long history with no credit losses, the implied government guarantee of principal and interest payments and the high credit rating of the HTM portfolio provide sufficient basis for the current expectation that there is zero risk of loss if default were to occur. As a result, the Company recorded 0 allowance for HTM debt securities with fair value less than amortized cost basis at the date of adoption.
ASC Topic 326 amended the existing other-than-temporary-impairment guidance for AFS securities, requiring credit losses to be recorded as an allowance rather than through a permanent write-down. When evaluating AFS debt securities under ASC Topic 326, the Company has evaluated whether the decline in fair value is attributed to credit losses or other factors using both
10

quantitative and qualitative analyses, including cash flow analysis, review of credit ratings, remaining payment terms, prepayment speeds and analysis of macro-economic conditions. At the date of adoption, collateralized loan obligations had unrealized losses of $1.2 million. The collateral for these securities is first lien senior secured corporate debt, and the Company holds senior tranches rated A or higher. Based on this analysis, the Company believes that the unrealized loss position for AFS debt securities at the time of adoption was the result of both broad investment type spreads and the current rate environment. Each investment is expected to recover its price depreciation over its holding period as it moves to maturity and the Company has the intent and ability to hold these securities to maturity if necessary. As a result of this evaluation, the Company concluded that no allowance was appropriate.
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848). The guidance provides accounting relief to contract modifications that replace an interest rate impacted by reference rate reform (e.g. London Inter-Bank Offered Rate ("LIBOR")) with a new alternative reference rate. The guidance is applicable to investment securities, receivables, loans, debt, leases, derivatives and hedge accounting elections, and other contractual arrangements. The Company applied the guidance prospectively beginning April 1, 2020, with no material impact on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

At September 30, 2020, the Company had $2.6 million in unrealized losses in uncapped 3-month LIBOR floating rate collateralized loan obligations ("CLOs") having a fair value of $176.5 million. CLOs are special purpose vehicles and those in which the Company has invested acquire nearly all first-lien, broadly syndicated corporate loans across a diversified band of industries while providing support to senior tranche investors. As of September 30, 2020, all positions held by the Company are in AAA and AA tranches, with average credit support of 36% and 26%, respectively. The Company evaluates the securities for potential credit losses by modeling expected loan-level defaults, recoveries, and prepayments for each CLO security. Based on the assessment of all relevant factors, the Company believes that the unrealized loss positions on these debt securities are a function of changes in investment spreads and interest rate movements and not changes in credit quality, and expects to recover the entire amortized cost basis of these securities. Therefore, at September 30, 2020, 0 allowance for credit losses has been recorded.
At September 30, 2020, the Company had $0.6 million of unrealized losses on mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage obligations issued by government-sponsored entities having a fair value of $248.8 million. These securities are either explicitly or implicitly guaranteed by the U.S. government and have a long history of no credit losses. The implied government guarantee of principal and interest payments and the high credit rating of the portfolio provide sufficient basis for the current expectation that there is no risk of loss if default were to occur. Based on the assessment of all relevant factors, the Company believes that the unrealized loss positions on these debt securities are a function of changes in investment spreads and interest rate movements and not changes in credit quality, and expects to recover the entire amortized cost basis of these securities. Therefore, at September 30, 2020, 0 allowance for credit losses has been recorded.
At September 30, 2020, the Company had $0.3 million of unrealized losses on private label residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage obligations having a fair value of $28.3 million. The collateral underlying these mortgage investments is primarily residential real estate. The securities have average credit support of 23%. Based on the assessment of all relevant factors, the Company believes that the unrealized loss positions on these debt securities are a function of changes in investment spreads and interest rate movements and not changes in credit quality, and expects to recover the entire amortized cost basis of these securities. Therefore, at September 30, 2020, 0 allowance for credit losses has been recorded.
All HTM debt securities are issued by government-sponsored entities, which are either explicitly or implicitly guaranteed by the U.S. government and have a long history of no credit losses. While the potential for default on these securities may be something greater than zero, the long history with no credit losses, the implied government guarantee of principal and interest payments and the high credit rating of the HTM portfolio provide sufficient basis for the current expectation that there is no risk of loss if default were to occur. Despite the emergence of significant market changes and increasing degrees of uncertainty in the U.S. economy in 2020, there has to date been no specific impact on the agencies or changes in the nature or quality of the guarantee they provide. As a result, as of September 30, 2020, 0 allowance for credit losses has been recorded.
Included in other assets at September 30, 2020 is $34.0 million of Federal Home Loan Bank and Federal Reserve Bank stock stated at par value. The Company has not identified events or changes in circumstances that may have a significant adverse effect on the fair value of these cost method investment securities. Also included in other assets is a $6.5 million investment in a CRA-qualified mutual fund carried at fair value. Accrued interest receivable on AFS and HTM debt securities of $3.2 million and $0.5 million at September 30, 2020, respectively, and $3.8 million and $0.6 million at December 31, 2019, respectively, is also included in other assets.

The Company holds 11,330 shares of Visa Class B stock, which, following resolution of Visa litigation, will be converted to Visa Class A shares. Under the current conversion ratio that became effective September 27, 2019, the Company would receive 1.6228 shares of Class A stock for each share of Class B stock for a total of 18,386 shares of Visa Class A stock. The ownership of Visa stock is related to prior ownership in Visa's network while Visa operated as a cooperative, and is recorded on the Company's financial records at a zero basis.

Note E – Loans
Loans held for investment are categorized into the following segments:
Construction and land development: Loans are extended to both commercial and consumer customers which are collateralized by and for the purpose of funding land development and construction projects, including 1-4 family residential construction, multi-family property and non-farm residential property where the primary source of repayment is from proceeds of the sale, refinancing or permanent financing of the property.
Commercial real estate - owner-occupied: Loans are extended to commercial customers for the purpose of acquiring real estate to be occupied by the borrower's business. These loans are collateralized by the subject property and the repayment of these loans is largely dependent on the performance of the company occupying the property.
Commercial real estate - non owner-occupied: Loans are extended to commercial customers for the purpose of acquiring commercial property where occupancy by the borrower is not their primary intent. These loans are viewed primarily as cash flow loans, collateralized by the subject property, and the repayment of these loans is largely dependent on rental income from the successful operation of the property.
Residential real estate: Loans are extended to consumer customers and collateralized primarily by 1-4 family residential properties and include fixed and variable rate mortgages, home equity mortgages, and home equity lines of credit. Loans are primarily written based on conventional loan agency guidelines, including loans that exceed agency value limitations. Sources of repayment may be from the occupant of the residential property or from cash flows on rental income from the successful operation of the property.
Commercial and financial: Loans are extended to commercial customers. The purpose of the loans can be working capital, physical asset expansion, asset acquisition or other business purposes. Loans may be collateralized by assets owned by the borrower or the borrower's business. Commercial loans are based primarily on the historical and projected cash flow of the borrower's business and secondarily on the capacity of credit enhancements, guarantees and underlying collateral provided by the borrower.
Consumer: Loans are extended to consumer customers. The segment includes both installment loans and lines of credit which may be collateralized or non-collateralized.
Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"): Loans originated under a temporary program established by the CARES Act. Under the terms of the program, balances may be forgiven if the borrower uses the funds in a manner consistent with the program guidelines, and repayment is guaranteed by the U.S. government.

All interest accrued but not received for loans placed on nonaccrual is reversed against interest income. Interest received on such loans is accounted for on the cost-recovery method. Under the cost-recovery method, interest income is not recognized until the loan balance is reduced to zero. Loans are returned to accrual status when all the principal and interest amounts contractually due are brought current, and future payments are reasonably assured. The Company recognized $0.1 million in interest income on nonaccrual loans during each of the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The Company recognized $0.5 million and $1.2 million in interest income on nonaccrual loans during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

The Company utilizes an internal asset classification system as a means of identifying problem and potential problem loans. The following classifications are used to categorize loans under the internal classification system:

Pass: Loans that are not problem loans or potential problem loans are considered to be pass-rated.
Special Mention: Loans that do not currently expose the Company to sufficient risk to warrant classification in the Substandard or Doubtful categories, but possess weaknesses that deserve management's close attention are deemed to be Special Mention.
Substandard: Loans with the distinct possibility that the Company will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected.
Substandard Impaired: Loans typically placed on nonaccrual and considered to be collateral dependent or accruing TDRs.
Doubtful: Loans that have all the weaknesses inherent in those classified Substandard with the added characteristic that the weakness present makes collection or liquidation in full, on the basis of currently existing facts, conditions and values, highly questionable and improbable. The principal balance of loans classified as doubtful are likely to be charged off.

Troubled Debt Restructured Loans
 
The Company’s TDR concessions granted to certain borrowers generally do not include forgiveness of principal balances, but may include interest rate reductions, an extension of the amortization period and/or converting the loan to interest only for a limited period of time. Loan modifications are not reported in calendar years after modification if the loans were modified at an interest rate equal to the yields of new loan originations with comparable risk and the loans are performing based on the terms of the restructuring agreements.
Loans Modified in Connection with COVID-19 Pandemic
The CARES Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020, encourages financial institutions to practice prudent efforts to work with borrowers financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by providing an option to exclude from TDR consideration certain loan modifications that might otherwise be categorized as TDRs under ASC 310-40. This option is available for modifications that are deemed to be COVID-related, where the borrower was not more than 30 days past due on
21

December 31, 2019, and the modification is executed between March 1, 2020 and the earlier of (i) December 31, 2020 or (ii) 60 days after the end of the COVID-19 national emergency. Federal banking regulators issued similar guidance that also allows lenders to conclude that short-term modifications for borrowers affected by the pandemic should not be considered TDRs if the borrower was current at the time of modification. Seacoast began offering short-term payment deferrals of up to six months to eligible borrowers in March 2020 and, at September 30, 2020, had $702.7 million of loans on payment deferral, none of which have been classified as TDRs.

The TDRs described above resulted in a specific allowance for credit losses of $0.2 million as of September 30, 2020, and 0 specific allowance for credit losses as of September 30, 2019. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, there were 4 defaults totaling $1.4 million on loans that had been modified in TDRs within the preceding twelve months. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, there were 3 defaults totaling $2.1 million of loans to a single borrower that had been modified to a TDR within the preceding twelve months. The Company considers a loan to have defaulted when it becomes 90 days or more delinquent under the modified terms, has been transferred to nonaccrual status, is charged off or has been transferred to other real estate owned. For loans measured based on the present value of expected future cash flows, $19,000 and $40,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and 2019, respectively, and $65,000 and $102,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and 2019, respectively, was included in interest income and represents the change in present value attributable to the passage of time.

Management establishes the allowance using relevant available information from both internal and external sources, relating to past events, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts to project losses over a three-year forecast period. Forecast data is sourced primarily from Moody’s Analytics, a firm widely recognized for its research, analysis, and economic forecasts. For portfolio segments with a weighted average life longer than three years, the Company reverts to longer-term historical loss experience to estimate losses over the remaining life of the loans within each segment.

Historical credit losses provide the basis for the estimation of expected credit losses. Adjustments to historical loss information are made for differences in current loan-specific risk characteristics such as differences in underwriting standards, portfolio mix, delinquency level, loan to value ratios, borrower credit characteristics, loan seasoning or term as well as for changes in current and forecasted environmental conditions, such as changes in unemployment rates, property values, occupancy rates, and other macroeconomic metrics.

As of September 30, 2020, the Company utilized Moody’s most recent “U.S. Macroeconomic Outlook Baseline” scenario and considered the significant uncertainty associated with the assumptions in the Baseline scenario, including, the potential resurgence of virus infections in Florida and other states, and the resulting potential decline in consumer spending and financial implications for businesses. The Company also considered the amount and availability of fiscal stimulus, including programs offered under the CARES Act and other potential future government programs and actions. Outcomes in any or all of these factors could differ from the Baseline scenario, and the Company incorporated qualitative considerations reflecting the risk of uncertain, and possibly further deteriorating, economic conditions, and for additional dimensions of risk not captured in the quantitative model.

In the Construction and Land Development segment, the increase in reserves during the quarter was affected by both the outlook for commercial real estate valuations, and qualitative adjustments relating to the uncertainty of economic conditions. In this segment, the primary source of repayment is typically from proceeds of the sale, refinancing, or permanent financing of the underlying property; therefore, industry and collateral type and estimated collateral values are among the relevant factors in assessing expected losses.

In the Commercial Real Estate - Owner-Occupied segment, the increase in reserves reflects both the impact of higher loan balances and an improved outlook for unemployment, partially offset by lower forecasted commercial real estate valuations. Risk characteristics include but are not limited to, collateral type, loan seasoning, and lien position.
In the Commercial Real Estate - Non Owner-Occupied segment, the decrease in reserves reflects lower estimated unemployment and an improved outlook for corporate profits over the forecast period. Repayment is often dependent upon rental income from the successful operation of the underlying property. Loan performance may be adversely affected by general economic conditions or conditions specific to the real estate market, including property types. Collateral type, loan seasoning, and lien position are among the risk characteristics analyzed for this segment.

The Residential Real Estate segment includes first mortgages secured by residential property, and home equity lines of credit. The decrease in reserves reflects an improved outlook for unemployment, and continued strength in the Florida housing market. Risk characteristics considered for this segment include, but are not limited to, collateral type, lien position, loan to value ratios, and loan seasoning.

In the Commercial and Financial segment, borrowers are primarily small to medium sized professional firms and other businesses, and loans are generally supported by projected cash flows of the business, collateralized by business assets, and/or guaranteed by the business owners. The increase in reserves reflects an increased proportion of working capital lines compared to loans secured by business assets. Industry, collateral type, estimated collateral values and loan seasoning are among the relevant factors in assessing expected losses.
25


Consumer loans include installment and revolving lines, loans for automobiles, boats, and other personal or family purposes. Risk characteristics considered for this segment include, but are not limited to, collateral type, loan to value ratios, loan seasoning and FICO score. A decrease in the reserve is attributed to lower loan balances and an improved outlook for unemployment.

Balances outstanding under the Paycheck Protection Program are guaranteed by the U.S. government and have not been assigned a reserve.

The allowance for credit losses is composed of specific allowances for loans individually evaluated and general allowances for loans grouped into loan pools based on similar characteristics, which are collectively evaluated. The Company’s loan portfolio and related allowance at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 is shown in the following tables:

Note I – Equity Capital
The Company is well capitalized and at September 30, 2020, the Company and the Company’s principal banking subsidiary, Seacoast Bank, exceeded the common equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio regulatory threshold of 6.5% for well-capitalized institutions under the Basel III standardized transition approach, as well as risk-based and leverage ratio requirements for well capitalized banks under the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action.

Note J – Contingent Liabilities
The Company and its subsidiaries, because of the nature of their business, are at all times subject to numerous legal actions, threatened or filed. Management presently believes that none of the legal proceedings to which it is a party are likely to have a materially adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition, operating results or cash flows.

5An investment in shares of a mutual fund that invests primarily in CRA-qualified debt securities, reported at fair value in Other Assets. Recurring fair value basis is determined using market quotations.
Available for sale debt securities: U.S. Treasury securities are reported at fair value utilizing Level 1 inputs. Other securities are reported at fair value utilizing Level 2 inputs. The estimated fair value of a security is determined based on market quotations when available or, if not available, by using quoted market prices for similar securities, pricing models or discounted cash flow analyses, using observable market data where available.
The Company reviews the prices supplied by independent pricing services, as well as their underlying pricing methodologies, for reasonableness and to ensure such prices are aligned with traditional pricing matrices. The fair value of collateralized loan obligations is determined from broker quotes. From time to time, the Company will validate, on a sample basis, prices supplied by the independent pricing service by comparison to prices obtained from other brokers and third-party sources or derived using internal models.
Loans held for sale: Fair values are based upon estimated values to be received from independent third party purchasers. These loans are intended for sale and the Company believes that the fair value is the best indicator of the resolution of these loans. Interest income is recorded based on the contractual terms of the loan and in accordance with the Company’s policy on loans held for investment. None of the loans were 90 days or more past due or on non accrual as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019. The aggregate fair value and contractual balance of loans held for sale as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 is as follows:

Loans: Level 2 loans consist of impaired real estate loans which are collateral dependent. Fair value is based on recent real estate appraisals less estimated costs of sale. For residential real estate impaired loans, appraised values or internal evaluations are based on the comparative sales approach. Level 3 loans consist of commercial and commercial real estate impaired loans. For these loans evaluations may use either a single valuation approach or a combination of approaches, such as comparative sales, cost and/or income approach. A significant unobservable input in the income approach is the estimated capitalization rate for a given piece of collateral. At September 30, 2020, the capitalization rates utilized to determine fair value of the underlying collateral averaged approximately 7.3%. Adjustments to comparable sales may be made by an appraiser to reflect local market conditions or other economic factors and may result in changes in the fair value of an asset over time. As such, the fair value of these impaired loans is considered Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy. Impaired loans measured at fair value totaled $11.2 million with a specific reserve of $8.3 million at September 30, 2020, compared to $5.1 million with a specific reserve of $2.9 million at December 31, 2019.
For loans classified as Level 3, changes included loan additions of $10.4 million offset by paydowns and charge-offs of $4.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Other real estate owned: When appraisals are used to determine fair value and the appraisals are based on a market approach, the fair value of other real estate owned (“OREO”) is classified as a Level 2 input. When the fair value of OREO is based on appraisals which require significant adjustments to market-based valuation inputs or apply an income approach based on unobservable cash flows, the fair value of OREO is classified as Level 3.
For OREO classified as Level 3 during the nine months ended September 30, 2020, changes included additions of one multifamily construction property for $6.5 million offset by sales of $3.9 million.
Transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy are recognized on the actual date of the event or circumstances that caused the transfer, which generally coincides with the Company’s monthly and/or quarter-end valuation process. There were no such transfers for loans and OREO classified as Level 3 during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.

The short maturity of Seacoast’s assets and liabilities results in having a significant number of financial instruments whose fair value equals or closely approximates carrying value. Such financial instruments are reported in the following balance sheet captions: cash and due from banks, interest bearing deposits with other banks, and securities sold under agreements to repurchase, maturing within 30 days.
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument for which it is practicable to estimate that value at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019:
Held to maturity debt securities: These debt securities are reported at fair value utilizing level 2 inputs. The estimated fair value of a security is determined based on market quotations when available or, if not available, by using quoted market prices for similar securities, pricing models or discounted cash flow analyses, using observable market data where available.
The Company reviews the prices supplied by independent pricing services, as well as their underlying pricing methodologies, for reasonableness and to ensure such prices are aligned with traditional pricing matrices. From time to time, the Company will validate, on a sample basis, prices supplied by the independent pricing service by comparison to prices obtained from other brokers and third-party sources or derived using internal models.
Loans: Fair values are estimated for portfolios of loans with similar financial characteristics. Loans are segregated by type, such as commercial or mortgage. Each loan category is further segmented into fixed and adjustable-rate interest terms as well as performing and nonperforming categories. The fair value of loans is calculated by discounting scheduled cash flows through the estimated life including prepayment considerations, using estimated market discount rates that reflect the risks inherent in the loan. The fair value approach considers market-driven variables including credit related factors and reflects an “exit price” as defined in ASC Topic 820.
Deposit liabilities: The fair value of demand deposits, savings accounts and money market deposits is the amount payable at the reporting date. The fair value of fixed maturity certificates of deposit is estimated using the rates currently offered for funding of similar remaining maturities.

Third Quarter 2020
Acquisition of Fourth Street Banking Company
In August 2020, Seacoast completed the acquisition of Fourth Street Banking Company (“Fourth Street”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Freedom Bank, which added $303 million in loans and $330 million in deposits. The acquisition supports Seacoast’s growing presence in the attractive St. Petersburg, Florida market. Freedom Bank operated two branches in St. Petersburg, which have been converted to Seacoast branches. Consolidation activities and related expenses are mostly complete.
Impact of Paycheck Protection Program Loans on Comparability Amongst Periods
Fees earned by Seacoast to originate Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loans, net of loan-specific costs, totaled $17.2 million, and are deferred and recognized as an adjustment to yield over time. At the end of the second quarter of 2020, Seacoast expected that the PPP forgiveness process would begin quickly, with a significant proportion of loans forgiven within nine months of origination. By the end of the third quarter of 2020, the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) had not processed any forgiveness applications, changes to various procedures and forms continued, and additional changes to the program are still being considered by Congress. As a result of the SBA loan forgiveness delays and increased uncertainty of the timing of the loan forgiveness, the Company changed from the accelerated fee recognition schedule used in the second quarter of 2020, and began recognizing fees on a schedule aligned with the full contractual maturity of the loans in the third quarter of 2020. This resulted in only $0.2 million in PPP fees recognized in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2020. The uncertainty in the SBA's forgiveness process may result in significant variability of fee recognition in future periods. This is solely a timing issue and does not affect the $17.2 million total fee income Seacoast will recognize as these loans are forgiven or mature. If the contractual term, rather than an accelerated term, had been used to recognize fees since the inception of the PPP program, PPP fee income in each of the second and third quarters of 2020 would have been $2.1 million. The Company expects to recognize approximately $2.1 million in each of the next six quarters if no early forgiveness occurs, although actual early forgiveness events may create variability in timing.

Third Quarter 2020 Results
For the third quarter of 2020, the Company reported net income of $22.6 million, or $0.42 per average diluted share, compared to $25.1 million, or $0.47, for the second quarter of 2020 and $25.6 million, or $0.49, for the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net income totaled $48.4 million, or $0.91 per average diluted share, compared to $71.6 million, or $1.38 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Adjusted net income1 for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $27.3 million, or $0.50 per average diluted share, compared to $25.5 million, or $0.48, for the second quarter of 2020 and $27.7 million, or $0.53, for the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, adjusted net income1 totaled $58.3 million, or $1.09 per average diluted share, compared to $77.8 million, or $1.50, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company's results reflect the impact of $4.3 million in merger-related expenses primarily related to the acquisition of Freedom Bank, and $0.5 million in costs relating to the simultaneous consolidation of a legacy branch in St. Petersburg. Results for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were also affected by the change in the timing of recognition of PPP loan fees. The second quarter of 2020 benefited from higher loan production driven by the PPP program, which resulted in higher deferrals of related salary expenses. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, merger related charges totaled $9.1 million, including costs to acquire both First Bank of the Palm Beaches ("FBPB") in March 2020 and Freedom Bank in August 2020.
Net Interest Income and Margin
Net interest income (on a fully taxable equivalent basis)2 for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $63.6 million, decreasing $3.8 million, or 6%, compared to the second quarter of 2020, and increasing $2.6 million, or 4%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net interest income (on a fully tax equivalent basis)1 totaled $194.3 million, an increase of $12.2 million, or 7%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Net interest margin was 3.40% in the third quarter 2020, compared to 3.70% in the second quarter 2020 and 3.89% in the third quarter of 2019. The decrease in the third quarter of 2020 was the result of the decrease in fees recognized on PPP loans. Excluding the impact of PPP loans and accretion of purchase discount on acquired loans, net interest margin decreased four basis points in the third quarter of 2020. Contributing to the four basis point decline, the yield on loans declined nine basis points, reflecting higher paydowns and refinancings, and the yield on securities declined 56 basis points, affected by rate resets and faster prepayments, as well as additional investments of excess liquidity into securities. These declines were partially offset by lower cost of deposits, which decreased seven basis points to 24 basis points during the quarter, compared to 31 basis points in the second quarter of 2020 and 73 basis points in the third quarter of 2019. Lower cost of deposits reflects lower market rates, and a favorable shift in product mix to include a higher proportion of noninterest bearing demand deposits to total deposits. We expect the cost of deposits to further decline in the fourth quarter of 2020.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net interest margin was 3.67%, a decrease of 28 basis points compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the cost of deposits was 36 basis points, compared to 72 basis points for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Decreases in net interest margin and the cost of deposits reflect the impact of the 150 basis point decrease in the fed funds rate in March 2020, which has since driven contractions in both the yields on interest-bearing assets and the cost of interest-bearing liabilities. In addition, PPP loan balances have yielded an average 2.60% during the nine months ended September 30, 2020, which has negatively affected the total loan yield.

Total average loans increased $132.3 million, or 2%, for the third quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2020, and increased $914.9 million, or 18%, from the third quarter of 2019. The increase from the prior quarter includes the impact of $303.4 million in loans acquired from Freedom Bank in the third quarter of 2020. The increase from prior year reflects the Company's participation in the PPP program and the impact of the acquisitions of FBPB and Freedom Bank.
Average loans as a percentage of average earning assets totaled 79% for the third quarter of 2020, 78% for the second quarter of 2020 and 79% for the third quarter of 2019.

Commercial originations during the third quarter of 2020 were $88.2 million, a decrease of $18.6 million, or 17%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and a decrease of $237.2 million, or 73%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. Commercial loan origination activity in the third quarter of 2020 reflects the continued adherence to underwriting guidelines in the current economic environment, lesser pipeline-building activities during the periods of government imposed shutdowns earlier in 2020, and lower demand for credit facilities from business customers.
The commercial pipeline increased $139.1 million, or 119%, to $256.2 million at September 30, 2020 compared to June 30, 2020. The Company has continued to maintain its disciplined credit culture, focusing only on relationships with strong balance sheets that can support significant stress.
The Company originates residential mortgage loans identified for sale to investors in the secondary market. The Company uses rate locks with investors at the time of application, thereby eliminating interest rate risk. Saleable loan production has continued to increase, reflecting a robust residential refinance market and strength in the Florida housing market. Residential loans

originated for sale in the secondary market were $162.5 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $122.5 million in the second quarter of 2020 and $80.8 million in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of 33% and 101%, respectively. The residential lending team has adapted quickly to heightened demand and has increased service levels to homebuyers, refinance customers, and local real estate professionals to generate substantial growth. Residential saleable pipelines were $149.9 million as of September 30, 2020, compared to $94.7 million as of June 30, 2020, an increase of 58%.
Residential loan production retained in the portfolio for the third quarter of 2020 was $25.4 million compared to $23.5 million in the second quarter of 2020 and $22.4 million in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of 8% and 13%, respectively. The pipeline of residential loans intended to be retained in the portfolio was $33.4 million as of September 30, 2020, compared to $13.2 million as of June 30, 2020, an increase of 153%.
Consumer originations totaled $62.3 million during the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $4.3 million, or 7%, from the second quarter of 2020 and an increase of $2.4 million, or 4%, from the third quarter of 2019. The consumer pipeline was $17.1 million as of September 30, 2020, compared to $30.6 million as of June 30, 2020, a decrease of 44%. The decrease was primarily the result of lower demand for home equity lines of credit, as customers are using first mortgage refinancing as an economically beneficial alternative.
Seacoast has assisted borrowers with more than 5,500 loans originated through the PPP program and, when combined with PPP loans acquired from Freedom Bank, outstanding balances totaled $638.8 million at September 30, 2020. Under the terms of the SBA's program, principal and interest on PPP loans may be forgiven provided the borrower uses the funds in a manner consistent with the program's guidelines. As of September 30, 2020, the SBA had not processed any forgiveness applications. Significant uncertainty remains about when and if borrowers will seek and qualify for forgiveness, and therefore uncertainty remains about the life of these loans.
Average debt securities increased $190.7 million, or 16.5%, for the third quarter 2020 compared to the second quarter 2020, and were $153.1 million, or 13%, higher compared to the third quarter of 2019. Increases from the second quarter of 2020 reflect the impact of purchases of $387.6 million, partially offset by maturities of $96.7 million. Purchases in the third quarter 2020 were primarily government-sponsored mortgage-backed securities, with an average yield of 1.31%.
The cost of average interest-bearing liabilities contracted 11 basis points in the three months ended September 30, 2020 to 40 basis points from 51 basis points, reflecting the impact of higher deposit balances and decreases in underlying market rates. The Company continues to benefit from a low-cost deposit franchise. During the third quarter of 2020, the Company acquired $330 million in deposits from Freedom Bank, including $141.3 million in noninterest bearing demand deposits. Noninterest bearing demand deposits at September 30, 2020 represented 35% of total deposits compared to 34% at June 30, 2020. The cost of average total deposits (including noninterest bearing demand deposits) in the third quarter of 2020 was 0.24% compared to 0.31% in the second quarter of 2020 and 0.73% in the third quarter of 2019.

The Company’s focus on convenience, with high-quality customer service, expanded digital offerings and distribution channels provides stable, low-cost core deposit funding. Over the past several years, the Company has strengthened its retail deposit franchise using new strategies and product offerings, while maintaining a focus on growing customer relationships. Seacoast believes that digital product offerings are central to core deposit growth and have proved to be of meaningful value to its customers in this environment. Seacoast's call center and retail associates continue to lead the market in availability and customer service standards, with the call center far out-performing large bank call center wait times and service level standards. The impacts of PPP and individual stimulus payments, as well as the acquisition of FBPB in the first quarter of 2020 and Freedom Bank in the third quarter of 2020, have all contributed to higher deposit balances. The Company has also seen a continued shift toward mobile engagement as customers recognize the ease of access and security features of mobile engagement. At September 30, 2020, registered mobile devices had increased 14% compared to September 30, 2019, while online users increased 13% in the same time period. Growth is coming from both consumer and business customers utilizing the convenience of mobile and online channels. During the third quarter of 2020, average transaction deposits (noninterest and interest bearing demand) increased $248.9 million, or 7%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and increased $901.8 million, or 33%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. Along with new and acquired relationships, deposit programs and digital sales have improved the Company's market share and deepened relationships with existing customers.
The Company’s deposit mix remains favorable, with 84% of average deposit balances comprised of savings, money market, and demand deposits for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Seacoast's average cost of deposits, including noninterest bearing demand deposits, decreased to 0.36% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to 0.72% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, reflecting the lower rates after the Federal Reserve actions beginning in the third quarter of 2019 and shifts in deposit mix with a higher proportion of low cost deposits. Brokered CDs totaled $381.0 million at September 30, 2020, with an average rate of 1.09%. CD maturities are laddered, with $147.2 million maturing in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Short-term borrowings, principally comprised of sweep repurchase agreements with customers, decreased $38.3 million, or 33%, to an average balance of $78.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to an average balance of $117.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease reflects a shift into interest-bearing deposits attributed to an expansion of deposit product offerings with similar characteristics to sweep repurchase products. The average rate on customer sweep repurchase accounts was 0.41% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to 1.38% for the same period during 2019. No federal funds purchased were utilized at September 30, 2020 or September 30, 2019.
FHLB borrowings averaged $180.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, increasing $65.6 million, or 57%, compared to the same period in 2019. The average rate on FHLB borrowings for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was 1.08% compared to 2.51% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. FHLB borrowings outstanding were $35.0 million at September 30, 2020, with an average rate of 0.72%, maturing in 2023.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, subordinated debt averaged $71.2 million, an increase of $0.3 million compared to the same period during 2019. The average rate on subordinated debt for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was 3.28%, compared to 4.87% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The subordinated debt relates to trust preferred securities issued by subsidiary trusts of the Company.

Noninterest Income
Noninterest income totaled $16.9 million for the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $1.9 million, or 13%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and an increase of $3.0 million, or 22%, from the third quarter of 2019.

Government actions in response to the pandemic, particularly in the second quarter of 2020, including the PPP program and individual stimulus payments, combined with lower overall consumer spending levels, have resulted in higher average deposit balances for both business and consumer customers. Higher average account balances have resulted in lower service charges in the second and third quarters of 2020 compared to 2019. Overdraft fees represent 44% of total service charges on deposits for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Interchange income totaled $3.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of $0.5 million, or 16%, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020, and an increase of $0.5 million, or 15%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, interchange income totaled $10.1 million, an increase of $0.1 million, or 1%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The third quarter of 2020 benefited from recent growth in business banking customers and targeted marketing efforts.
Wealth management income, including trust fees and brokerage commissions and fees, was a record $2.0 million in the third quarter of 2020, increasing $0.3 million, or 15%, from the second quarter of 2020 and increasing $0.3 million, or 21% compared to the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, wealth management income totaled $5.6 million, an increase of $0.8 million, or 16%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Increases reflect the strategic focus of growing the wealth management business. Assets under management reached $793 million at September 30, 2020, an increase of 31% compared to the prior year. As a result, the Company expects wealth management income to continue to grow in future periods.
Mortgage banking fees increased by $1.7 million, or 48%, to $5.3 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2020, and increased $3.2 million, or 148%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, mortgage banking fees totaled $11.1 million, an increase of $6.1 million, or 122%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as Seacoast continues to capitalize on the robust residential refinance market and strength in the Florida housing market. Seacoast's mortgage team has adapted quickly to the heightened demand by increasing customer service level standards with realtors, refinance customers, and new home buyers, resulting in stronger performance than competitors.

Marine finance fees were $0.2 million, an increase of $0.1 million, or 54%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and an increase of $0.1 million, or 59%, compared to the prior year quarter. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, marine finance fees totaled $0.5 million, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 24%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
SBA income totaled $0.3 million, an increase of $0.1 million, or 39%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and a decrease of $0.3 million, or 56%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, SBA income totaled $0.6 million, a decrease of $1.3 million, or 70%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 reflects lower production of saleable SBA loans outside of the PPP program.
Bank owned life insurance ("BOLI") income totaled $0.9 million for the third quarter of 2020, in line with the second quarter of 2020 and prior year results. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, BOLI income totaled $2.7 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 4%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
Other income was $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $0.2 million, or 10%, quarter-over-quarter and a decrease of $0.8 million, or 26%, year-over-year. The increase from the prior quarter reflects higher income on SBIC investments, partially offset by lower loan swap fees. The decrease from the prior year quarter reflects a $1.0 million BOLI death benefit recorded in the third quarter of 2019, offset by higher SBIC investment income in the third quarter of 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, other income totaled $7.9 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 1%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Higher income from SBIC investments in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was more than offset by the BOLI death benefit recorded in the comparable 2019 period.
Securities gains in the third quarter of 2020 were nominal compared to gains of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2020 and losses on securities sales of $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2019. Securities gains during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 totaled $1.3 million, compared to losses of $1.3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
Noninterest Expenses
The Company has demonstrated its commitment to efficiency through disciplined, proactive management of its cost structure. Noninterest expenses in the third quarter of 2020 included acquisition-related expenses of $4.3 million and expenses related to branch consolidation of $0.5 million. The second quarter of 2020 benefited from the impact of higher loan production driven by the PPP program, resulting in higher deferrals of salary-related expenses. These factors contributed to an overall increase in noninterest expense in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2020. Seacoast has reduced its branch count by 20% since 2017 through successful bank acquisitions and the repositioning of the banking center network in strategic growth markets to meet the evolving needs of its customers. Further consolidation activity is expected in 2021. At September 30, 2020, deposits per banking center were $135.6 million, up from $118.2 million at September 30, 2019. Adjusted noninterest expense3 as a percent of average tangible assets was 2.24% for the third quarter of 2020 compared to 2.11% for the second quarter of 2020 and 2.21% for the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, adjusted noninterest expense1 as a percent of average tangible assets was 2.26% compared to 2.37% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
For the third quarter of 2020, the efficiency ratio, defined as noninterest expense less amortization of intangibles and gains, losses, and expenses on foreclosed properties divided by net operating revenue (net interest income on a fully taxable equivalent basis plus noninterest income excluding securities gains and losses), was 61.65% compared to 50.11% for the second quarter of 2020 and 48.62% for the third quarter of 2019. The efficiency ratio in the second quarter of 2020 benefited from the impact of higher PPP fee accretion and the impact of higher loan production driven by the PPP program, resulting in higher deferrals of salary-related expenses. Additionally, the provision for unfunded lending-related commitments totaled $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2020 and none in the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the efficiency ratio was 57.15% compared to 52.85% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in efficiency ratio for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 reflects the impact of an increase in merger-related expenses of $8.7 million and an increase of $1.0 million in provision for unfunded lending-related commitments, partially offset by lower branch reduction expenses of $1.4 million.
The adjusted efficiency ratio1 increased from 49.60% in the second quarter of 2020 to 54.82% in the third quarter of 2020. The increase is the result of lower net interest income from the change in PPP accretion and higher expenses primarily associated with PPP salary deferrals in the second quarter of 2020, offset by higher noninterest income. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the adjusted efficiency ratio1 increased to 52.64% from 52.05% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Salaries and wages totaled $23.1 million for the third quarter of 2020, $20.2 million for the second quarter of 2020, and $18.6 million for the third quarter of 2019, an increase of 14% and 24%, respectively. Expenses increased $2.9 million in the third quarter of 2020, reflecting lower expenses in the second quarter of 2020 of $2.9 million resulting from deferral of salary costs on higher PPP loan production. The third quarter of 2020 also included $0.6 million in costs associated with the Freedom Bank acquisition and higher residential commission expenses resulting from increased mortgage production volume, offset by lower temporary staffing costs associated with the customer support center. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, salaries and wages totaled $67.0 million, an increase of $10.5 million, or 19%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase includes merger-related expenses of $3.1 million in the 2020 period, higher residential commission expenses resulting from increased mortgage production volume, bonuses and incentives paid in support of PPP loan production and to branch employees, and the addition of temporary staff to support the pandemic operating environment.
During the third quarter 2020, employee benefit costs, which include costs associated with the Company's self-funded health insurance benefits, 401(k) plan, payroll taxes, and unemployment compensation, were $4.0 million, an increase of $0.6 million, or 18%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and an increase of $1.0 million, or 34%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. The increase in the third quarter of 2020 reflects higher health insurance claims, likely the result of routine medical appointments having been postponed in the second quarter due to COVID-19 lockdowns. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, employee benefit costs totaled $11.6 million, an increase of $1.3 million, or 12%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Increases for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 reflect the impact of additional employees added through the FBPB and Freedom Bank acquisitions.
The Company utilizes third parties for its core data processing systems. Ongoing data processing costs are directly related to the number of transactions processed and the negotiated rates associated with those transactions. The Company also incurs acquisition-related costs for data migration and contract terminations. Outsourced data processing costs totaled $6.1 million, $4.1 million and $3.7 million for the third quarter 2020, second quarter 2020 and third quarter 2019, respectively. Of the $2.1 million increase quarter-over-quarter, $1.9 million was the result of acquisition-related costs associated with data conversion. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, data processing costs totaled $14.8 million, an increase of $3.4 million, or 30%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Increases in the 2020 period include $2.7 million of acquisition-related costs and higher lending-related costs to support the administration of the PPP program. The Company continues to improve and enhance mobile and other digital products and services through key third parties. This may increase outsourced data processing costs as customers adopt improvements and products and as business volumes grow.
Telephone and data line expenditures, including electronic communications with customers and between branch and customer support locations and personnel, as well as with third-party data processors, were $0.7 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 11%, during the third quarter of 2020 when compared to the second quarter of 2020 and an increase of $0.1 million, or 17%, when compared to the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, telephone and data line expenditures totaled $2.2 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 4%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
Total occupancy, furniture and equipment expenses for the third quarter of 2020 increased $0.7 million, or 15%, from the second quarter of 2020, and increased $0.5 million, or 11% compared to the third quarter of 2019. The increases resulted from merger-related costs, and expenses incurred in connection with the consolidation of the legacy St. Petersburg branch in the third quarter of 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, occupancy, furniture and equipment totaled $15.2 million, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 4%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in the nine-month period reflects the benefit of consolidating three banking center locations in 2019. Seacoast has reduced its branch count by 20% since 2017 through successful bank acquisitions and the repositioning of the banking center network in strategic growth markets to meet the evolving needs of its customers. The Company believes branches are still valuable to customers for more complex transactions, but simple tasks, such as depositing and withdrawing funds, are rapidly migrating to the digital world. Management anticipates that branch consolidations will continue for the Company and the banking industry in general.
Marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $1.5 million, an increase of $0.5 million, or 52%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and an increase of $0.6 million, or 62%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, marketing expenses totaled $3.8 million, an increase of $0.5 million, or 16%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Higher expenses in the third quarter of 2020 reflect increased investment to capture the opportunity presented by dissatisfied business customers affected by unsatisfactory PPP execution by national banks.
Legal and professional fees for the third quarter of 2020 were $3.0 million, an increase of $0.7 million, or 33%, compared to the second quarter of 2020 and an increase of $1.4 million, or 83%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. The Company incurred $1.3 million in acquisition-related expenses in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, legal and professional fees totaled $8.7 million, an increase of $2.1 million, or 33%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019, attributed to acquisition-related expenses incurred in 2020, partially offset by higher project-related expenses incurred in the first half of 2019.
47

The Company utilized the remainder of previously issued FDIC small bank assessment credits to offset a portion of the assessment in the second quarter of 2020. Assessment expense in the third quarter of 2020 returned to the standard level, and is expected to be $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, FDIC assessment expenses totaled $0.7 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 16%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019, reflecting the benefit of credits applied in the 2020 period.
During the third quarter of 2020, the Company incurred expenses related to the sale of foreclosed assets, net of gains on sales, of $0.5 million compared to $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2020 (see “Nonperforming Loans, Troubled Debt Restructurings, Other Real Estate Owned, and Credit Quality” for more discussion).
The provision for credit losses on unfunded lending commitments totaled $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2020 and none in the third quarter of 2019. Since adopting the CECL standard on January 1, 2020, the Company maintains an allowance for credit losses on lending-related commitments that are not unconditionally cancellable which reflects the company's estimate of lifetime losses. During the third quarter of 2020, the increase is primarily related to loan commitments acquired from Freedom Bank.
Other expense totaled $4.5 million, $3.8 million and $3.4 million for the third quarter of 2020, the second quarter of 2020 and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, other expenses totaled $12.0 million, an increase of $0.8 million, or 7%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Increases in 2020 included higher mortgage loan production-related expenses associated with higher volume, and costs related to the administration of the PPP program.
Income Taxes
For the third quarter of 2020, the Company recorded tax expense of $7.0 million compared to $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2020 and $8.5 million in the third quarter of 2019. In September 2019, the State of Florida announced a reduction in the corporate income tax rate from 5.5% to 4.458% for the years 2019, 2020 and 2021. This change resulted in additional income tax expense of $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2019 upon the write down of deferred tax assets affected by the change, offset by a $0.4 million benefit upon adjusting the year-to-date provision to the new statutory tax rate. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, tax expenses totaled $14.0 million, a decrease of $7.7 million, or 36%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Tax impacts related to stock-based compensation were nominal in each period.
