LINCOLN PARK, N.J., Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Park Bancorp (OTC Bulletin Board: LPBC) (the "Company"), the holding company of Lincoln Park Savings Bank, announced net income of $179,000, or $.10 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $42,000, or 19.0%, compared to $221,000 or $.13 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Net income decreased during the period primarily as a result of a decrease in net interest income, an increase in the provision for loan losses, offset by a decrease in non-interest expenses and a decrease in income tax expense.
Net interest income decreased $76,000, or 6.3% during the September 30, 2012 quarter to $1.1 million, as compared to $1.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, reflecting an increase of $1.7 million in average net interest earning assets, offset by a 37 basis points decrease in the net interest margin. Average interest earning assets increased $13.9 million, or 8.0% during the three months ended September 30, 2012, which consisted of $10.9 million increase in investment securities, an increase of $ $2.5 million in loans and $473,000 in other interest- earning assets. Interest income on securities decreased by $142,000, or 13.4% to $920,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $1.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Interest income on loans decreased by $47,000, or 5.5% to $804,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $851,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The decrease in interest income is a result of lower interest rates in general. Average interest bearing liabilities increased by $12.2 million or 7.7%, during the three months ended September 30, 2012, which consisted of increases of $4.1 million in interest bearing deposits and $8.1 million in borrowings. Interest expense on interest-bearing liabilities decreased by $113,000, or 16.0% to $595,000, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $708,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The improved results in this area were due to a decrease of 39 basis points in the cost of total interest bearing liabilities to 1.39% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, from 1.78% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The interest rate spread decreased by 34 basis points to 2.28% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to 2.61% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.
During the quarter ended September 30, 2012, provision for loan losses was $66,000, compared to $44,000 during the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The provision recognized in the current quarter was attributable to general loan loss reserves.
Non-interest expenses decreased by $22,000, or 2.7% to $798,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 from $820,000, for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, primarily due to decreases in equipment expense, salaries and employee benefits, real estate owned expense, offset by increases in expenses related to advertising, audit and accounting, legal fees, and FDIC premium. Income tax expense decreased by $32,000 to $117,000 for the three months ending September 30, 2012, compared to $149,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, due to a decrease of $74,000 in pre-tax income.
At September 30, 2012, the Company had total assets of $193.0 million and stockholders' equity of $15.8 million. In addition, the Company had net loans of $72.8 million, total deposits of $100.4 million, and total borrowings of $ 75.4 million as of September 30, 2012.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
