29 Jan, 2014, 11:42 ET from First Resource Bank

EXTON, Pa., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- First Resource Bank (OTC Bulletin Board: FRSB) announced net income grew 15% in 2013, to $1,055,658 for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $917,557 for the prior year.  After accounting for preferred stock dividends, net income available to common shareholders grew 34% in 2013, to $1,004,828 for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $750,187 for the prior year. Preferred stock dividends declined $116,540, or 70% when comparing 2013 to 2012.

Glenn B. Marshall, President & CEO, stated, "2013 was the most profitable year in the Bank's history and the year we achieved the milestone of positive retained earnings. These record results have increased shareholder's equity and strengthened the Bank's foundation as we take on our retail expansion in 2014 with our entry into the West Chester market. We are looking forward to an exciting year that will virtually transform the entire look and feel of First Resource Bank."

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $291,181 as compared to $263,366 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 and net income of $234,255 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. After accounting for preferred stock dividends, net income available to common shareholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $278,472. This compares to net income available to common shareholders of $250,659 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 and $221,458 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Net interest income was $1,426,007 for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $1,392,110 for the previous quarter.  The net interest margin declined 1 basis point from 3.66% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 to 3.65% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The overall yield on interest earning assets decreased 4 basis points during the fourth quarter, with loan yields down 1 basis point. The cost of interest bearing liabilities declined 3 basis points during the fourth quarter, led by a 2 basis point decline in the cost of money market deposits. 

Net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $5,509,706, as compared to $5,326,357 in the prior year, an increase of $183 thousand or 3.4%.  The net interest margin for 2013 was 3.74%, which was 11 basis points lower than the prior year net interest margin of 3.85%. This margin compression was driven by a 26 basis point decline in loan yields, offset by an 18 basis point decline in deposit costs.

Deposits increased $1.5 million, or 1.1% from $138.4 million at September 30, 2013 to $139.9 million at December 31, 2013. During the fourth quarter, certificates of deposit decreased $2.1 million, or 2.7%, from $77.8 million at September 30, 2013 to $75.7 million at December 31, 2013. Money market deposits increased $3.6 million, or 7.2%, from $50.4 million at September 30, 2013 to $54.0 million at December 31, 2013. Non-interest bearing deposits decreased $856 thousand, or 11.7% from $7.3 million at September 30, 2013 to $6.4 million at December 31, 2013. Interest checking balances increased $826 thousand, or 27.7% from $3.0 million at September 30, 2013 to $3.8 million at December 31, 2013.

Total deposits grew $8.8 million, or 6.7% in 2013, from $131.1 million at December 31, 2012 to $139.9 million at December 31, 2013. Money market deposits increased $10.6 million, or 24.4% in 2013 due to strong deposit growth efforts across the organization. Non-interest bearing deposits grew $1.2 million, or 22.8% during 2013. Interest checking balances were down in 2013 due to temporary growth in one existing large deposit account at the 2012 year end. Absent that account fluctuation, interest checking balances increased $767 thousand, or 25.2% in 2013.

The loan portfolio grew $5.6 million, or 4.2%, during the fourth quarter from $134.4 million at September 30, 2013 to $140.0 million at December 31, 2013. The vast majority of this growth was in the commercial real estate portfolio.

During 2013 the loan portfolio grew $11.3 million, or 8.8%. Virtually all of this growth was in the commercial real estate portfolio, offset by small declines in the commercial business and construction loan portfolios.

The following table illustrates the composition of the loan portfolio:

The allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.89% at December 31, 2013 as compared to 0.93% at September 30, 2013 and 1.12% at December 31, 2012. Non-performing assets, which include non-performing loans of $2.1 million and other real estate owned of $663 thousand, totaled $2.7 million at December 31, 2013. Non-performing assets to total assets decreased from 2.25% at September 30, 2013 to 1.51% at December 31, 2013 due to a decline in non-accrual loans as well as an increase in total assets.  Non-performing assets to total assets decreased from 2.45% at December 31, 2012 to 1.51% at December 31, 2013.

Non-interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $99,077, as compared to $86,876 for the previous quarter.

Non-interest income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $367,016, as compared to $279,360 for the prior year.  This increase was due to the addition of rental income on a building acquired in August 2012 to house the future branch location in West Chester.  A full 12 months of rent was received in 2013 but only 4 months in 2012.

Non-interest expense increased $32 thousand, or 3.2%, in the three months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013. This increase was due to higher professional fees and higher salaries and benefits expenses, offset by lower advertising expenses.

Non-interest expense increased $375 thousand, or 10.5%, for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the year ended December 31, 2012. This increase was mainly due to higher salaries and benefits associated with a higher headcount, higher depreciation due to the purchase of two buildings over the past 18 months, higher data processing fees and higher advertising expenses offset by lower other real estate owned expenses.
