Highlights

  • Net income was $1,099,000 and $2,159,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $1,374,000 and $2,566,000 for the same periods in 2013.

  • Diluted earnings per share were $.31 per share and $.61 per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $.40 per share and $.69 per share for the same periods in 2013.

"During the first six months of 2014, the Bank experienced a decline in its mortgage originations, despite maintaining its market share, due to lower levels of refinancing, as well as purchasing activity across our market area. This decline in originations has unfavorably affected our level of noninterest income," said Thomas M. Carr, President and COO.

Mr. Carr continued, "We have maintained our net interest margin, limited our operating expenses, increased deposit fee income, and continue to have strong asset quality."

Net Income

Net income totaled $2,159,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, a decrease of $407,000 or 16% from the $2,566,000 of net income recorded for the same period in 2013. This decrease was the net result of a decrease in noninterest income of $341,000, an increase in tax expense of $237,000, and an increase in noninterest expense of $46,000, offset by an increase in net interest income of $81,000 and a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $136,000.

Net income totaled $1,099,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, a decrease of $275,000 or 20% from the $1,374,000 recorded for the same period in 2013.
