First Resource Bank Announces 2012 First Quarter Results

Apr 19, 2012, 11:13 ET from First Resource Bank

EXTON, Pa., April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- First Resource Bank (OTC Bulletin Board: FRSB) announced net income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $243,738 as compared to $232,982 for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 and net income of $174,120 for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. After accounting for preferred stock dividends, net income available to common shareholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $180,200. This compares to net income available to common shareholders of $168,740 for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 and $101,982 for the quarter ended March 31, 2011.

Glenn B. Marshall, President & CEO, stated, "We are pleased to report the sixth consecutive record quarterly earnings for our common shareholders. During the first quarter we successfully grew the loan portfolio while maintaining our net interest margin in a highly competitive loan market."

Net interest income was $1,302,907 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 as compared to $1,301,422 for the previous quarter.  The net interest margin widened 1 basis point, from 3.90% for the three months ended December 31, 2011 to 3.91% for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The current interest rate environment and increased competition for quality loan relationships in the Chester County market placed pressure on yields for new loans, with the loan yield falling 20 basis points during the first quarter. The yield on total assets declined only 2 basis points due to lower short term cash balances maintained and a higher yield on the investment portfolio.  The deposit cost of funds declined 7 basis points during the first quarter, led by a 12 basis point decline in the cost of certificates of deposit.

The allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.17% at March 31, 2012, as compared to 1.24% at December 31, 2011 and 1.27% at March 31, 2011. Non-performing assets, which include non-performing loans of $3.0 million and other real estate owned of $1.2 million, totaled $4.2 million at March 31, 2012. Non-performing assets to total assets increased from 2.20% at December 31, 2011 to 2.93% at March 31, 2012 due to $1.2 million of loans placed on nonaccrual during the first quarter.  Marshall stated, "We are encouraged with our progress in improving credit quality year over year, however, due to the size of the loan portfolio, one individual customer relationship can have an impact on a particular quarter's ratios."

The loan portfolio grew $5.3 million, or 4.5%, during the first quarter from $117.5 million at December 31, 2011 to $122.8 million at March 31, 2012. The vast majority of this loan growth was in the commercial real estate segment of the portfolio.

The following table illustrates the composition of the loan portfolio:

Deposits increased $5.1 million, or 4.2% from $119.9 million at December 31, 2011 to $125.0 million at March 31, 2012. During the first quarter, certificates of deposit increased $3.5 million, or 5.0%, from $70.6 million at December 31, 2011 to $74.1 million at March 31, 2012. Money market deposits increased $2.0 million, or 4.8%, from $42.0 million at December 31, 2011 to $44.0 million at March 31, 2012.

Non-interest income for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $55,179, as compared to $38,944 for the previous quarter. This increase was primarily due to income from the increase in cash surrender value on bank owned life insurance that was purchased during the fourth quarter of 2011.

Non-interest expense decreased $27,895, or 3.2% in the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2011. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in other real estate owned expenses, offset by higher employment expenses.
