(NASDAQ:JXSB) reported unaudited net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017, of $806,000, or $0.45 per share of common stock, basic and diluted, compared to unaudited net income of $766,000, or $0.43 per share of common stock, basic and diluted, for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The Company reported unaudited net income of $1,565,000, or $0.88 per share of common stock, basic, and $0.87 per share of common stock, diluted, for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to unaudited net income of $1,592,000, or $0.90 per share of common stock, basic, and $0.89 per share of common stock, diluted, for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Basic per share information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, is based upon 1,790,008 and 1,787,311 average shares outstanding, respectively, compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, which was based upon 1,775,726 and 1,773,321 average shares outstanding, respectively.

Net income increased $40,000 to $806,000 during the second quarter of 2017, as compared to the second quarter of 2016. The increase in net income reflected an increase of $33,000 in noninterest income and a decrease of $107,000 in noninterest expense, partially offset by a decrease of $71,000 in net interest income and an increase of $29,000 in income taxes.

Net interest income decreased $71,000 to $2.5 million during the second quarter of 2017, reflecting a decrease of $34,000 in interest income and an increase of $37,000 in interest expense, as compared to the second quarter of 2016. For the three months ended June 30, 2017, our net interest margin was 3.33% compared to 3.67% for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The ratio of interest earning assets to interest bearing liabilities at June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016 was 1.30x and 1.29x, respectively.

The provision for loan losses remained stable at $30,000 during the second quarters of 2017 and 2016. Management reviews the allowance for loan losses quarterly and has determined the allowance for loan losses with a balance of $3.1 million, or 1.6% of total loans, at June 30, 2017 to be adequate. On this date, nonperforming loans totaled $1.5 million, or 0.78% of total loans.

The increase of $33,000 in noninterest income to $1.1 million during the second quarter of 2017 was primarily due to increases of $23,000 in service charges on deposits and $9,000 in ATM and debit card interchange income. Noninterest expense decreased $107,000 to $2.5 million during the second quarter of 2017. The decrease in noninterest expense was primarily due to decreases of $89,000 in real estate owned expense and $45,000 in compensation and benefits expense, partially offset by increases of $14,000 in occupancy expense and $14,000 in data processing and telecommunications expense. The $29,000 increase in income taxes reflected the higher level of taxable income during the second quarter of 2017, as compared to the second quarter of 2016.

Net income decreased $27,000 to $1.6 million during the first six months of 2017 resulting in an annualized return on assets of 0.98%, compared to 1.06% during the first six months of 2016. The decrease in net income reflected a decrease of $187,000 in net interest income, partially offset by an increase of $103,000 in noninterest income and decreases of $53,000 in noninterest expense and $4,000 in income taxes.

The decrease of $187,000 in net interest income to $5.1 million during the first six months of 2017, compared to the same period of 2016, was due to a decrease of $142,000 in interest income and an increase of $45,000 in interest expense. The provision for loan losses remained steady at $60,000 during the first halves of 2017 and 2016. The increase of $103,000 in noninterest income to $2.2 million during the first six months of 2017 was primarily due to increases of $50,000 in net income on mortgage banking operations, $34,000 in service charges on deposits, and $20,000 in ATM and debit card interchange income. Noninterest expense decreased $53,000 to $5.0 million during the first six months of 2017 primarily due to decreases of $65,000 in compensation and benefits expense and $38,000 in real estate owned expense, partially offset by an increase of $46,000 in data processing and telecommunications expense. The decrease of $4,000 in income taxes reflected the lower level of taxable income during the first half of 2017 as compared to the same period of 2016.

Total assets at June 30, 2017 were $335.8 million compared to $319.3 million at December 31, 2016.
