The Bank of Princeton Announces Third Quarter 2015 Results

30 Oct, 2015, 13:29 ET from The Bank of Princeton

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bank of Princeton (the "Bank") today announced unaudited results of operations and financial condition for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

"The continued positive results achieved in the third quarter are a direct result of the commitment and dedication of our employees in the execution of the bank's strategy," said Edward Dietzler, the Bank's President.

As of September 30, 2015, the Bank's total assets increased to $1.0 billion, an increase of $66.7 million from December 31, 2014.  The increase in total assets was the result of the continued growth of the Bank's loan portfolio, which increased $60.4 million, or eight percent, from December 31, 2014.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, net income was $3.0 million, an increase of 28 percent from the same period in 2014.  Basic earnings per common share were $0.65, compared to $0.51 in the same period in 2014.  Diluted earnings per common share were $0.63 for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to $0.46 for the same period in 2014.  The increase in net income occurred as a result of the improvement of both net interest income and non-interest expenses over the prior year comparable quarter. 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, net income was $8.3 million, an increase of 30 percent from the same period in 2014.  Basic earnings per common share were $1.80, compared to $1.39 in the same period in 2014.  Diluted earnings per common share were $1.74 for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $1.24 for the same period in 2014.  Similar to our quarter-end results, the increase in net income over the prior year nine month period was the result of increased net interest income and decreased non-interest expenses.

Director Stephen Shueh observed that, "The bank is proud to have recently passed the $1 billion threshold in total assets.  We are appreciative of the hard work and dedication of those who have contributed to our continuing growth."
