TERRE HAUTE, IN -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- First Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: THFF) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Net income of $7.8 million increased 1.8% compared to $7.7 million for the same period of 2013. Return on assets for the first quarter of 2014 was 1.03% compared to 1.05% for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Net interest income for the first quarter of 2014 was $27.1 million, a 3.7% increase, from the $26.2 million reported for the same period of 2013. The net interest margin at March 31, 2014 was 4.10%, compared to 4.09% reported at March 31, 2013.

The provision for loan losses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $1.96 million compared to the $3.02 million provision for the first quarter of 2013. Net charge-offs were $1.39 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to a net recovery in 2013 of $1.04 million.

Non-interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 was $10.1 million and $9.9 million, respectively. Gain on sale of loans decreased $587 thousand while the income from service charges on deposits and other service fees increased by virtually the same amount.

Non-interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $23.7 million compared to $22.1 million in 2013. The expansion of the branch network in the last half of 2013 resulted in increased occupancy and equipment expense as well as a 4% increase in full-time equivalent employees when comparing the first quarters of 2014 and 2013.

Total loans at March 31, 2014 stood at $1.78 billion compared to the $1.82 billion reported the same time a year ago. Deposits increased by $157.2 million to $2.5 billion at March 31, 2014 from March 31, 2013. Reduced demand for loans allowed for the reduction of Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings by $76.4 million during this period.

Book value per share for the first quarter of 2014 was $29.90, a 5.16% increase from $28.43 at March 31, 2013. Shareholders' equity increased 5.54% to $399.3 million from $378.4 million on March 31, 2013.
