STAMFORD, Conn., July 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patriot National Bancorp, Inc. ("Patriot" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:PNBK), the parent company of Patriot National Bank (the "Bank"), today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2015.
Patriot reported net income for the second quarter of 2015 of $689,000, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to $525,000, or $0.13 per diluted share, a year ago and compared to $289,000, or $0.07 per diluted share, last quarter. Pretax income in the second quarter was $1,141,000 compared with $525,000 for the same quarter of last year, a 117% improvement. Compared to last quarter net income increased 138%. Kenneth T. Neilson, President and CEO commented that "this quarter's progress is the result of decisions and strategies developed and implemented in 2014. We continue to focus on working to improve every aspect of our operation."
Michael Carrazza, Chairman, stated that "given our financial progress and healthy condition, we are actively exploring strategic activities in order to increase shareholder value."
Net interest income increased by $1,315,000, or 32%, compared to the second quarter of last year and by $372,000, or 7%, compared to the first quarter of this year. The growth in net interest income was the result of loan growth along with an expanded net interest margin. Patriot's net interest margin for the second quarter of 2015 was 3.73% compared to 3.31% in the second quarter of 2014 and 3.49% last quarter.
No provision for loan losses was made in the second quarter as asset quality continues to be strong and Patriot's Reserve for Loan Losses is 10 times total nonperforming loans. Patriot had no charge-offs and a net recovery of $15,000 in the second quarter of 2015.
Non-interest income decreased by $172,000 from the second quarter of 2014 and increased by $57,000 from the first quarter of this year. The decrease from the comparable period last year is primarily the result of no Bank Owned Life Insurance ("BOLI") income due to the fourth quarter 2014 disposal of the BOLI investment and to lower overdraft fees. The improvement from the first quarter of this year is primarily the result of an increase in loan origination fees.
Non-interest expense in the second quarter of 2015 increased by $527,000, or 12%, compared to the second quarter of 2014 with 80% of that increase being in salaries and benefits as Patriot strengthened its management team and established a bonus program. The additional staff will also help reduce consulting expenses in future periods. Compared to last quarter non-interest expense increased by $28,000, or less than one percent.
For the six months ended June 30, 2015, Patriot reported net income of $978,000 ($0.25 basic and diluted income per share), an increase of $134,000, or 16%, compared to net income of $844,000 ($0.22 basic and diluted income per share) for the six months ended June 30, 2014. On a pretax basis Patriot earned $1,631,000 in the current year-to-date period, a 93% improvement over the same period last year.
At June 30, 2015 total assets were $629 million compared to $647 million at March 31, 2015 and $552 million at June 30, 2014. Net loans totaled $489 million at June 30, 2015 compared to $494 million at March 31, 2015 and $403 million at June 30, 2014. Deposits were $457 million at June 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015 and $426 million at June 30, 2014. The deposit mix continues to improve as non-interest bearing deposits grow and become a larger portion of total deposits. Patriot's total cost of deposits was 0.45% for the quarter as compared to 0.49% in the prior quarter and 0.57% in the quarter ended June 30, 2014.
Asset quality has continued to improve. Nonperforming loans totaled $511,000 at June 30, 2015 and Patriot has had no Other Real Estate Owned ("OREO") on its books for four consecutive quarters. At June 30, 2015 Patriot's Allowance for Loan Losses provided better than ten times coverage of nonperforming loans and the Company has experienced three consecutive quarters of net recoveries.
At June 30, 2015 shareholders' equity was $60.1 million compared to $59.3 million at March 31, 2015 and $43.3 million a year ago. The Company's tangible book value per share was $15.19 at June 30, 2015 compared to $15.00 at March 31, 2015 and $11.06 at June 30, 2014. Patriot's leverage capital ratio was 9.44% as of June 30, 2015. Its Common Equity Tier I Capital ratio was 10.17%. The Tier I Risk Based Capital ratio was 11.80% and the total Risk-based Capital Ratio was 12.86%. These regulatory capital ratios all exceed those necessary to be considered a well-capitalized institution under Federal guidelines.
