(1)     Quarterly income and expense amounts used in calculating the ratio have been annualized.




(2)     Represents the difference between the weighted average yield on average interest-earning assets and the weighted
          average cost of average interest-bearing liabilities.



(3)     Represents net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets.


(4)     Represents total noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and total other income.





Net income increased $18,000 to $494,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to net income of $476,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Net interest income decreased $313,000, or 8.9%, to $3.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $3.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.   The decrease of $462,000 in interest income was partially offset by a $149,000 decrease in interest expense.  The decrease in interest income was the result of a decrease in the average interest rate earned on loans from 5.48% to 4.99%, a decrease in the average rate earned on investments from 2.40% to 2.01% and a $7.8 million decrease in the average balance of loans, partially offset by a $23.0 million increase in the average balance of investments.  The decrease in interest expense was primarily the result of a decrease in the average interest rate paid on deposits from 1.10% to 0.89%, partially offset by a $15.4 million increase in the average balance of outstanding deposits.  Changes in interest rates are reflective of decreases in overall market rates. 

The provision for loan losses was $250,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $898,000 for the same quarter in the prior year, a decrease of $648,000 or 72.2%. The decrease in the loan loss provision was primarily due to a decrease in the loan portfolio of approximately $11.1 million combined with a decrease in nonperforming loans of approximately $1.0 million from June 30, 2012.

Other income remained flat at $1.1 million in the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.  Increases of $165,000 in gain on sale of loans and $68,000 in income from bank owned life insurance during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were offset by a $236,000 decrease in gain on sale of investments. The increase in the gain on sale of loans was the result of an increase in loan sales to Freddie Mac in the September 30, 2012 quarter when compared to the same quarter in the prior year, primarily due to an increase in refinancing activity as a result of the continued low interest rate environment. The increase in income from bank owned life insurance was the result of the purchase of additional bank owned life insurance during the latter part of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. The purpose of the purchase of bank owned life insurance was to offset and recover the bank's benefit liabilities and obligations. The decrease in gain on sale of investments was the result of no sales of mortgage-backed securities and other available for sale investment securities during the current year quarter as compared to the prior year quarter.  

Noninterest expense increased $268,000, or 8.5%, from $3.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 to $3.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The increase was primarily due to increases of $104,000 in professional fees, $73,000 in compensation and employee benefits, and $68,000 in data processing expenses. The increase in professional fees was primarily due to an increase in audit, legal and consulting expenses related to annual reporting requirements. The increase in compensation and employee benefits expense was primarily due to the addition of employees in the accounting and collections departments and annual wage increases.  The increase in data processing expense was primarily due to the implementation of a new branch network communication system.   

Total assets were $502.2 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $495.9 million at June 30, 2012.  Total assets increased $6.3 million, or 1.3%, primarily as a result of a $15.0 million increase in investment securities, partially offset by an $11.1 million decrease in loans. The increase in our investment securities was the result of an increase in deposits and a decrease in loans. The increase in investment securities was primarily related to purchases of both mortgage-backed securities and municipal bonds. The decrease in loans was primarily the result of payoffs aggregating $5.8 million for three performing commercial real estate loans.

Total liabilities were $446.9 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $440.9 million at June 30, 2012.  The increase of $6.0 million was primarily the result of a $6.1 million increase in deposits which reflected a $3.8 million net increase in municipal deposits and a $2.3 million increase in retail customer deposits. The increase in municipal deposits consisted of an increase in demand deposits totaling $5.0 million, partially offset by a decrease in savings accounts totaling $1.2 million.  The increase in retail deposits consisted of increases in demand deposit accounts of $1.0 million and savings accounts of $2.7 million, partially offset by declines in certificates of deposit of $1.4 million.

Total stockholders' equity was $55.3 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $55.0 million at June 30, 2012.  The increase was primarily the result of net income of $494,000 and a $633,000 increase in net unrealized gains on investments, partially offset by dividends paid of $862,000.  As previously announced, as a result of the cost and uncertainty associated with United Community MHC's ability to waive receipt of the Company's dividends, the Board of Directors determined to suspend the payment of any cash dividends on the Company's common stock until after completion of the pending second step conversion.    At September 30, 2012, the Bank was considered "well-capitalized" under applicable regulatory requirements.

United Community Bancorp is the holding company of United Community Bank, headquartered in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.  The Bank currently operates eight offices in Dearborn and Ripley Counties, Indiana.
