First Colebrook Bancorp, Inc. Releases June 30, 2014 Consolidated Earnings

COLEBROOK, N.H., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- First Colebrook Bancorp, Inc. (FCNH), the holding company for First Colebrook Bank, released today consolidated unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Total assets increased to $266.8 million on June 30, 2014 from $262.7 million on June 30, 2013. Net loans at June 30, 2014 were $191.4 million, from $189.5 million on June 30, 2013. Deposits grew to $224.7 million from $224.1 million a year earlier.

Consolidated unaudited net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $612,094 compared to $703,699 for the first six months of 2013. Net interest income was $4.1 million versus $4.2 million in 2013. The very low interest rate environment continues to compress margins. At June 30, 2014 the bank's net interest margin for the first six months of 2014 was 3.31% compared to 3.51% a year earlier. Non-interest income decreased to $627,000 from $765,000 due in part to the reduced level of residential mortgage loan originations. Non-interest expenses increased to $3.9 million from $3.8 million for the six months ending June 30 over the same period last year. The provision for loan losses was lower by $218,000 for the six months of this year compared to last year.
