Quarterly Results:

Interest Income

Net interest income increased to $13.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 from $13.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. Total interest and dividend income was $15.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 compared to $14.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The $668,000 increase in interest and dividend income was primarily due to an increase of $1.0 million in interest earned on loans that occurred because of growth in the loan portfolio. This was partially offset by a $397,000 reduction in interest earned on investment securities that occurred because of a decrease in the size of the investment portfolio.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense increased to $1.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 compared to $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The increase in interest expense was primarily due to a $71,000 increase in interest expense on deposits and a $32,000 increase of interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase. During the fourth quarter of 2014, there was a provision of $172,000 for loan losses compared to a credit of $8,000 to the provision for loan losses for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The increase in loan loss provisions occurred primarily because of growth in the loan portfolio.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $1.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 compared to $1.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The reduction in noninterest income was primarily due to a $400,000 decrease in gain on sale of securities, a decrease of $121,000 in services fees on loan and deposit accounts, a decrease of $38,000 in gain on sale of loans and a $29,000 decrease on income on bank-owned life insurance.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense decreased to $8.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 as compared to $9.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The decrease in noninterest expense was primarily due to lower salaries and employee benefits, equipment expenses and other general and administrative expenses which was partially offset by increases in occupancy and FDIC insurance premiums.

Year Ended December 31, 2014 Results:

For the year ended December 31, 2014 net interest income was $53.5 million compared to $49.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. Total interest and dividend income increased to $59.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 from $56.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 primarily because of an increase in interest income on loans that occurred because of growth in the loan portfolio. Total interest expense decreased to $6.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 from $6.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, primarily due to a decrease in interest paid on securities sold under agreements to repurchase. This was partially offset by an increase in interest expense on deposits that occurred because of growth in total deposits. Provision for loan losses increased to $360,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to $39,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013 primarily because of growth in the loan portfolio.

Noninterest income was $5.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to $8.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. This decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to decreases in gains on sale of investment securities, gains on sales of loans and service fees on loan and deposit accounts.

Noninterest expense was $35.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to $35.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to increases in occupancy and equipment expenses.

Net income for 2014 was $14.1 million compared to $14.6 million earned in 2013. The decline in net income can be attributed primarily to a decrease in non-interest income which was partially offset by an increase in net interest income.

Assets and Equity

Total assets increased to $1.692 billion at December 31, 2014 from $1.617 billion at December 31, 2013. Loans receivable grew to $968.2 million at December 31, 2014 from $856.5 million at December 31, 2013 as new loan originations exceeded loan repayments and loan sales. Investment securities decreased to $572.9 million at December 31, 2014 from $613.4 million at December 31, 2013 as repayments and sales exceeded new security purchases. The growth in loans receivable was funded by an increase in deposits and repayments on investment securities. Deposits grew to $1.360 billion at December 31, 2014 from $1.289 billion at December 31, 2013. Total stockholders' equity increased to $216.4 million at December 31, 2014 from $212.1 million at December 31, 2013. The increase in stockholders' equity was primarily due to 2014 earnings which was partially offset by dividend payments and by the cost of shares repurchased in the Company's stock repurchase programs. Since becoming a public company in 2009 through December 31, 2014, the Company has repurchased 2,749,789 shares, compared to 2,528,259 shares as of December 31, 2013.

Asset Quality

Total delinquent loans past due and not accruing totaled $758,000 (4 loans) at December 31, 2014, compared to $1.6 million (5 loans) at December 31, 2013. Non-performing assets totaled $4.5 million at December 31, 2014 compared to $6.0 million at December 31, 2013. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets of 0.26% at December 31, 2014 continues to remain one of the lowest in the country. The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2014 was $1.7 million and represented 0.17% of total loans. At December 31, 2013, the allowance for loan losses was $1.5 million and represented 0.17% of total loans.
