(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 other expense divided by the sum of net interest income and total other income.





For the three months ended June 30, 2012:

Net interest income decreased $219,000, or 6.0%, to $3.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to $3.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.   A decrease of $398,000 in interest income was partially offset by a $179,000 decrease in interest expense.  The decrease in interest income was primarily the result of a decrease in the average rate earned on loans from 5.75% to 5.19%.  The decrease in interest expense was primarily the result of a decrease in the average interest rate paid on deposits from 1.16% to 0.92%, partially offset by a $9.0 million increase in average outstanding FHLB advances.  Changes in interest rates are reflective of decreases in overall market rates. 

The provision for loan losses was $1.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to $755,000 for the same quarter in the prior year. Management evaluates the Bank's allowance for loan loss for adequacy on at least a quarterly basis.  As part of this evaluation, management considers the amounts and types of loans, concentrations, the value of underlying collateral, current economic conditions, historical charge-offs, and other relevant information, such as the size of the overall portfolio and the financial condition of the borrowers.  The increase in the loan loss provision was primarily due to the deteriorating financial condition of one commercial real estate loan.

Other income increased $483,000, or 37.9%, from $1.3 million in the prior year quarter to $1.8 million in the current year quarter.  The increase was primarily due to a $355,000 increase in gain on sale of investments and a $124,000 increase in gain on the sale of loans. The increase in gain on sale of investments was the result of a higher level of sales of mortgage-backed securities and other available for sale investment securities during the current year quarter as compared to the same quarter in the prior year. The increase in the gain on sale of loans was the result of an increase in loan sales to Freddie Mac in the current year quarter when compared to the same quarter in the prior year, primarily due to an increase in refinancing activity due to the continued low interest rate environment.

Other expense remained flat at $3.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the prior year quarter. A $127,000 decrease in deposit insurance premiums was partially offset by a $91,000 increase in data processing expense and a $47,000 provision for loss on real estate owned with no such provision in the prior year quarter. The increase in data processing expense is primarily due to an increase in ATM and data center service charges resulting from an increase in transactions.  The decrease in deposit insurance premiums is reflective of an overall decrease in average deposits in the current year compared to the prior year combined with a decrease in the assessment rate. 

For the year ended June 30, 2012:

Net interest income decreased $361,000, or 2.5%, to $13.9 million for the year ended June 30, 2012 as compared to $14.3 million for the year ended June 30, 2011.  A decrease of $1.7 million in interest income was partially offset by a $1.3 million decrease in interest expense.  The decrease in interest income was primarily the result of a $12.0 million decrease in average outstanding loans combined with a decrease in the average rate earned on loans from 5.72% to 5.33%.  The decrease in interest expense was primarily the result of a decrease in the average interest rate paid on deposits from 1.29% to 1.00%.  Changes in interest rates are reflective of decreases in overall market rates. 

The provision for loan losses was $3.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2012, compared to $4.1 million for the prior year. Nonperforming loans decreased $4.4 million, from $20.6 million at June 30, 2011 to $16.2 million at June 30, 2012.  The decrease in nonperforming loans in the current year was primarily the result of troubled debt restructurings that were placed on accrual (performing) status after performing in accordance with their restructured terms for at least six consecutive months, partially offset by additional nonperforming loans in the current year.

Other income increased $939,000, or 23.3%, from $4.0 million in the prior year to $5.0 million in the current year.  The increase was primarily due to an $880,000 increase in gain on sale of investments. The increase in gain on sale of investments was the result of a higher level of sales of mortgage-backed securities and other available for sale investment securities during the current year as compared to the prior year. 

Other expense decreased slightly to $12.4 million in the current year from $12.5 million in the prior year.  Increases of $216,000 in compensation and employee benefits expense, $195,000 in data processing expense and $275,000 in other expense were offset by decreases of $494,000 in deposit insurance premiums and $214,000 in amortization of intangible assets.  The increase in compensation and employee benefits expense is primarily due to additional employees and annual wage increases.  The increase in data processing expense is primarily due to an increase in ATM and data center service charges resulting from an increase in transactions. The increase in other expense is primarily the result of an increase in professional fees during the period.  The decrease in deposit insurance premiums is a result of an $8.8 million decrease in average deposits combined with a decrease in the assessment rate. The decrease in amortization of intangible assets is due to the use of the double declining balance method of amortization which resulted in higher levels of amortization expense during the prior year.

Total assets were $495.9 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $472.5 million at June 30, 2011.  Total assets increased $23.4 million, or 4.9%, primarily as a result of a $22.5 million increase in investment securities, reflecting purchases of mortgage-backed securities offset by sales of other available for sale securities.   

Total liabilities were $440.9 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $418.4 million at June 30, 2011.  The increase of $22.5 million was primarily the result of a $13.9 million increase in deposits and a $9.0 million increase in FHLB advances.  The increase in deposits was primarily the result of an increase in retail customer deposits partially offset by a $8.2 million decrease in municipal deposits. The increase in FHLB advances was primarily the result of the implementation of a strategy to improve interest rate risk by using longer term FHLB advances to fund recent loan production.

Total stockholders' equity was $55.0 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $54.1 million at June 30, 2011.  The increase was primarily the result of net income of $2.0 million, partially offset by dividends paid of $1.4 million.  At June 30, 2012, the Bank was considered "well-capitalized" under applicable regulatory requirements.
