Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. Reports Results for the First Quarter 2014

FREDERICK, Md., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (OTCQB Marketplace: FCBI), the parent company for Frederick County Bank ("FCB"), announced today that for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 the Company recorded net income of $525 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.34, as compared to net income of $480 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.31 recorded for the same quarter of 2013. 

The increase in earnings was due primarily to an increase in net interest income to $2.8 million at March 31, 2014 from $2.6 million for the same period of 2013, partially offset a decrease in total noninterest income to $222 thousand at March 31, 2014 from $249 thousand for the same period in 2013, and an increase in total noninterest expense to $2.3 million at March 31, 2014 from $2.2 million for the same period in 2013. 

Net loan charge-offs for the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 totaled $40 thousand and $5 thousand, respectively.  There were $42 thousand and $48 thousand in charge-offs in 2014 compared to 2013, which were offset by recoveries of $2 thousand and $5 thousand for the periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. 

The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans stood at 1.34%, 1.55% and 1.35% as of March 31, 2014 and 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively.  Nonperforming assets stood at $5.4 million, $8.0 million and $5.3 million as of March 31, 2014 and 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively.  The corresponding nonperforming assets to total assets ratios were 1.61%, 2.50% and 1.67% as of March 31, 2014 and 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively. 

The Company also reported that, as of March 31, 2014, assets stood at $334.0 million, with total deposits of $282.3 million and gross loans of $252.8 million, representing increases of 4.2%, 2.9%, and 9.6%, respectively, compared to March 31, 2013.  Total shareholders' equity at March 31, 2014 was $26.7 million, an increase of $490 thousand from December 31, 2013.  The increase primarily resulted from the expenditures to repurchase 10,000 shares of common stock in the aggregate amount of $162 thousand and dividends declared in the aggregate amount of $102 thousand, offsetting net income of $525 thousand, the decline in the unrealized loss on available for sale securities in the amount of $217 thousand and proceeds from the exercise of options in the amount of $6 thousand.  On a per share basis, book value per share increased by forty-five cents for 2014 to $18.09 per share at March 31, 2014 from $17.64 per share at December 31, 2013.  The dividends declared per share increased by two cents in 2014 to $0.07 per share at March 31, 2014 compared to the $0.05 declared in the same period in 2013.

Frederick County Bank is headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, and conducts full service commercial banking services through five bank centers, four of which are located in the City of Frederick and one in Walkersville, Maryland.
