Net Interest Income

For the fourth quarter 2013 compared to the fourth quarter 2012 –

Net interest income before provision for loan losses in 2013 increased $73,000, compared to 2012 even though the net interest margin declined to 3.61% compared to 3.63%. Interest income declined by $97,000, whereas interest expense declined by $170,000.  Interest income from loans declined by $128,000 as a result of reductions in loan yields to 5.02% compared to 5.45% from 2012.  Interest income from securities increased $33,000.  Total yield on earning assets declined to 4.47% from 4.75%.  Interest expense from checking, savings and money market account deposits improved by $33,000 as a result of reduced rates.  Interest expense from time deposits improved by $95,000, due to both reduced balances and lower rates.  A significant portion of the bank's time deposits are on 60-month terms.  We expect continued costs savings into the first quarter of 2014 as time deposits continue to mature and renew at lower rates.  Higher average balances of non-interest-bearing deposits also supported the reduction in cost of funds to 0.88% from 1.13%.

For 2013 compared to 2012 –

Net interest income before provision for loan losses in 2013 increased $160,000 compared to 2012.  Although the net interest margin declined to 3.53% from 3.60%, declines in interest income were offset by declines in interest expense.  Interest income from loans declined by $355,000 as a result of lower yields of 5.24% compared to 5.39% in 2012.  Interest income from securities declined by $109,000 due mainly to reduced yields.  Total yield on earning assets declined to 4.45% from 4.77%.  Interest expense from checking, savings and money market account deposits improved by $104,000 as a result of reduced rates.  Interest expense from time deposits improved by $383,000, due to both reduced balances and lower rates.  Higher average balances of non-interest-bearing deposits also supported the reduction in cost of funds to 0.96% from 1.18%.

Non-Interest Income

For the fourth quarter 2013 compared to the fourth quarter 2012 –

Non-interest income decreased to $1.2 million in 2013 compared to $1.4 million in 2012.  This decrease was due primarily to reduced premiums earned on mortgage originations for third parties related to a slow-down in refinancings.  These decreases were partially offset by higher loan servicing fees, earnings on bank owned life insurance and commissions earned from the sales of investment products through our Investment Advantage Program, the bank's non-deposit products program.

For 2013 compared to 2012 –

Non-interest income increased to $5.5 million in 2013 compared to $5.2 million in 2012.  This was due mainly to the mortgage servicing right cumulative recognition and gain on the sale of the Bay Trust Company building, both of which occurred in the third quarter of 2013, plus a $216,000 increase in commissions from Investment Advantage, and a $181,000 increase in service charges and fees on deposit accounts.  These increases were partially offset by reductions in net gains on the sale of securities of $794,000.

Non-Interest Expense

For the fourth quarter 2013 compared to the fourth quarter 2012 –

Non-interest expense increased $144,000 or 4.6%, in 2013 compared to 2012.  Salaries and benefits expense increased by $115,000 primarily due to commissions related to increased mortgage loan activity, Investment Advantage activity and higher professional fees.  Other real estate owned ("OREO") losses decreased $222,000.  

For 2013 compared to 2012 –

Non-interest expense increased by $626,000, or 4.9%, in 2013 from 2012.  Salaries and benefits expense increased by $711,000.  This was partially due to higher commissions of $145,000 for new positions which are generating additional revenue.  These new positions also created additional salary expense after savings from reductions in force were redeployed.  Non-recurring severance expense related to the reduction in force was $132,000.  Pension costs increased by $169,000, to a more normal level of $135,000 in 2013, because these costs were negative in 2012 as a result of freezing the plan effective December 31, 2012.  Also, incentive compensation increased $123,000, to $126,000 from $3,000.  These increases were partially offset by reductions in core system costs, absence of $50,000 in fraud investigation expense, reductions of $173,000 in losses on OREO, and reduction of $140,000 in consulting expense. 

Balance Sheet

Total assets decreased $3.6, or 1.1%, to $331.2 million as of December 31, 2013, compared to year-end 2012.  Loans receivable grew by $12.0 million, or 5.0%, the Company purchased $5.0 million of bank owned life insurance and grew securities by $1.9 million using interest bearing deposits for that purpose.   On the liability side of the balance sheet, the deposit mix improved as non-interest-bearing deposits grew by $7.3 million and time deposit balances declined by $10.3 million.  Capital increased $409,000 due to improved earnings, net of increased accumulated other comprehensive loss.
