(NASDAQ Capital Market – JXSB) reported unaudited net income for the three months ended June 30, 2014, of $625,000, or $0.35 per share of common stock, basic and diluted, compared to net income of $760,000, or $0.41 per share of common stock, basic and diluted, for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  The Company reported unaudited net income of $1,465,000, or $0.82 per share, basic, and $0.81 per share, diluted, for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to net income of $1,773,000, or $0.95 per share, basic and diluted, for the six months ended June 30, 2013.  Per share information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, is based upon 1,795,133 and 1,794,883 average shares outstanding, respectively, compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, which was based upon 1,869,499 and 1,873,692 average shares outstanding, respectively.

Net income decreased $135,000 during the second quarter of 2014, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.  The decrease in net income reflected increases of $256,000 in noninterest expense and $30,000 in provision for loan losses and a decrease of $80,000 in noninterest income, partially offset by an increase of $137,000 in net interest income and a decrease of $94,000 in income taxes.  The increase in net interest income during the second quarter of 2014 reflected an increase of $54,000 in interest income and a decrease of $83,000 in interest expense, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.  We benefitted from an increase of $74,000 in interest income on mortgage-backed securities as mortgage loan rates increased and prepayment speeds slowed.  For the three months ended June 30, 2014 our net interest margin was 3.60% compared to 3.39% for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  The ratio of interest earning assets to interest bearing liabilities at June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013 was 1.25x and 1.22x, respectively. 

The provision for loan losses increased $30,000 during the second quarter of 2014.  Management reviews the allowance for loan losses quarterly and has determined the allowance for loan losses with a balance of $3.3 million, or 1.9% of total loans, at June 30, 2014 to be adequate.  Noninterest income decreased $80,000 during the second quarter of 2014 primarily due to decreases of $43,000 in gains on the sales of securities, $26,000 in net income from mortgage banking operations and $23,000 in service charges on deposits.  Noninterest expense increased $256,000, primarily due to an increase of $241,000 in professional fees.  The increase in professional fees reflects an increase in non-recurring legal and consulting expenses.  The $94,000 decrease in income taxes reflects the lower level of taxable income during the second quarter of 2014.

Net income increased $308,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same period of 2013.  The decrease in net income was due to a decrease of $569,000 in noninterest income and increases of $242,000 in noninterest expense and $30,000 in provision for loan losses, partially offset by an increase of $313,000 in net interest income and a decrease of $220,000 in income taxes.  The increase in net interest income during the first six months of 2014, compared to the same period of 2013, was due to an increase of $147,000 in interest income and a decrease of $166,000 in interest expense.  The provision for loan losses increased $30,000 during the first half of 2014.  The decrease of $569,000 in noninterest income during this same period was primarily due to decreases of $527,000 in gains on sales of securities and $84,000 in net income from mortgage banking operations.  The increase of $242,000 in noninterest expense was primarily due to an increase of $212,000 in professional fees and $42,000 in ATM and bank card interchange expense.  The decrease of $220,000 in income taxes reflects the lower level of taxable income during 2014.

Total assets at June 30, 2014 decreased to $308.8 million from $318.4 million at December 31, 2013.  Total deposits at June 30, 2014 were $252.1 million, compared to $251.7 million at December 31, 2013.  Total stockholders' equity increased to $44.1 million at June 30, 2014 from $41.1 million at December 31, 2013.  The Company reported a book value per share of $24.17 and a tangible book value per share of $22.67 at June 30, 2014.  At June 30, 2014, Jacksonville Savings Bank exceeded its applicable regulatory capital requirements with Tier 1 leverage, Tier 1 risk-based capital, and total risk-based capital ratios of 12.3%, 18.5%, and 19.7%, respectively.
