Net interest income of $1.86 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 represents a new quarterly record for the Bank and an increase of $255,000 or 15.9% from $1.60 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The primary contributors to this increase were growth in average loans and purchases of investment securities using excess liquidity over the same period. The Bank’s net interest margin was 3.21% for the third quarter of 2016, up from 3.12% for the same quarter a year ago.
Michael Finn, Executive Vice President and CFO commented, “In late September, the Bank received an advance of $20 million from its line of credit with the Federal Home Loan Bank. The proceeds are being used to purchase highly rated, floating rate investment securities, allowing the Bank to better utilize its excess capital. At quarter end, the Bank’s Tier 1 Leverage ratio remained above 9.5%.”
John M. Jelavich, President and CEO commented, “The Bank registered the best quarter in its ten year history with new record levels reached in several key areas, including total assets and net income. During the quarter, we saw continued interest in our Bank, as reflected by our new account activity. We also experienced solid loan growth, and the credit quality in our loan portfolio remained strong.”
“Our favorable capital position has enabled us to further increase our operating leverage and add to our investment securities portfolio. Due to the high credit quality and variable rate nature of the additional investments, we expect lower margins on that segment of the portfolio; however, these incremental earning assets are expected to drive increased earnings for the Bank going forward,” Jelavich concluded.
