(1)     Quarterly income and expense amounts used in 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 other expense divided by the sum of net interest income and other income.

(5)     The Bank closed on its purchase of three branches from Integra Bank on June 4, 2010.  As a result of that purchase, the Bank acquired loans with a fair value of $43.9 million.  Under ASC 805-20-30-1, the acquired  loans are accounted for at fair value.  Consequently, there is no allowance for loan loss related to the acquired loans to be included in this calculation.



For the three months ended June 30, 2011:

Net interest income increased $580,000 or 18.7% in the current year quarter, when compared to the prior year quarter.  The increase was primarily attributable to a decrease in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities from 1.60% to 1.17% and an increase in average balances in interest-earning assets from $431.6 million to $447.4 million, partially offset by an increase in average balances in interest-bearing liabilities from $397.6 million to $420.6 million.  The decrease in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities was the result of the continued low interest rate environment.  The increase in average balances is the result of the purchase of three branches from Integra Bank, National Association that occurred on June 4, 2010 which resulted in the assumption of $53.0 million in deposits.  

Noninterest income increased $95,000 or 8.1%, in the current year quarter, when compared to the prior year quarter.  The increase was attributable to an increase of $294,000 in gain on sale of investments and an increase of $81,000 in service charges, partially offset by a decrease of $307,000 in other income.  The increase in gain on sale of investments was the result of the increased profit from the sale of certain investments that were in an unrealized gain position at the time of the sale.  The securities were sold in an effort to better diversify the Bank's investment portfolio in both types and durations of investments.  The increase in service charges was attributable to an increase in the Bank's customer base with the closing on the previously mentioned branch acquisition.  Since this transaction occurred during the third month of the quarter ended June 30, 2010, its impact on net interest income, other income, and other expenses was minimal.  Other income was higher in the 2010 quarter due to the settlement of a state tax refund.  

Noninterest expense decreased $264,000 or 7.9% in the current year quarter compared to the prior year quarter.  The decrease in the current year quarter was attributable to branch acquisition related expenses of $213,000 incurred in the prior year quarter and a $113,000 provision for loss on the sale of other real estate owned ("REO") in the prior year quarter with no such provision in the current year quarter, partially offset by an increase of $89,000 in data processing expense.  The acquisition related expenses in the prior year quarter and the subsequent increase in data processing expenses in the current year quarter were attributable to the previously mentioned branch acquisition.  

For the year ended June 30, 2011:

Net income decreased from $1.0 million in the year ended June 30, 2010 to a net loss of $75,000 in the year ended June 30, 2011.  The decrease was primarily the result of an increase in the provision for loan losses of $3.7 million, partially offset by an increase in net interest income of $1.8 million and a decrease in the provision for income taxes of $639,000.  

The increase in the provision for loan losses was primarily the result of the charge-off of $6.8 million in loans, of which $4.4 million related to the restructuring of 13 loans having an aggregate outstanding principal balance prior to their restructurings of $18.0 million.  

The increase in net interest income was the result of an increase in the average balances in interest-earning assets from $400.9 million in the prior year to $459.5 million in the current year combined with a decrease in the average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities from 1.76% for the prior year to 1.30% for the current year, partially offset by a decrease in the average rate earned on interest-earning assets from 4.72% for the prior year to 4.32% for the current year and an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities from $366.1 million in the prior year to $430.7 million in the current year.  The decrease in rates and yields was driven by continued low market interest rates in the current year.  The increase in average balances was due to the aforementioned branch acquisition.  

The decrease in provision for income taxes is the result of the decrease in pre-tax income attributable to the factors described above and to the receipt of a prior period state tax refund received during the current year.  

Total assets were $472.6 million at June 30, 2011, compared to $492.1 million at June 30, 2010.  Total liabilities were $418.5 million at June 30, 2011, compared to $436.6 million at June 30, 2010.  Total stockholders' equity was $54.0 million at June 30, 2011, compared to $55.5 million at June 30, 2010.  The decrease in assets was primarily due to a $23.4 million decrease in loans, reflecting the combined effect of the refinancing of $20.1 million of residential mortgage loans into lower fixed-rate loans which were sold to Freddie Mac, and the prepayment of several large commercial loans aggregating $7.7 million in the current fiscal year.  The decrease in liabilities was primarily due to a $10.4 million decrease in municipal deposits and a $6.7 million decrease in other deposits resulting from the Bank's decision to reduce its reliance on municipal deposits and other higher cost deposits.  At June 30, 2011, the Bank's regulatory capital exceeded the levels required to be categorized as "well capitalized" under applicable regulatory capital guidelines.

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