  • Basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.32 for the three months ended June 30, 2017, up 8 cents, or 33.3%, from $0.24 for the same period in 2016
  • Return on average common stockholders’ equity of 10.82% for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to 8.69% for the same period in 2016
  • Period end loans of $325.6 million, up 6.2% (12.6% annualized) from December 31, 2016
  • Period end deposits of $341.3 million, up 3.6% (7.2% annualized) from December 31, 2016
  • Period end noninterest-bearing deposits of $54.8 million, up 15.5% (31.3% annualized) from December 31, 2016
  • Nonperforming assets of $2.9 million, down from $3.5 million at December 31, 2016

Tom Wayne, President and Chief Financial Officer, reported, “I am very pleased with the Bank’s performance in the second quarter of 2017. Our net income and net income available to common stockholders increased significantly from 2016 to 2017, and we saw strong growth on the asset and liability sides of the balance sheet. It was also nice to see our noninterest expense remain relatively flat and our efficiency ratio decline year over year, since growth combined with expense management is a focus of ours for 2017. Lastly, nonperforming assets declined 17.1% from December 31, 2016 to June 30, 2017. I am thankful to our dedicated employees, the Board of Directors, and our clients for their continued support.”

Bank of Oak Ridge’s capital ratios remain strong and exceed all regulatory requirements at June 30, 2017. The Company’s stockholders’ equity was 7.1% and 7.0% of total assets as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. Tangible book value per common share was $12.28 as of June 30, 2017, compared to $11.37 as of December 31, 2016.

Net interest income was $3.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, a $230,000 increase from $3.4 million during the same period in 2016. Total interest and dividend income increased approximately $340 thousand from 2016 to 2017, with increases in loan interest and fees of $329 thousand offset by decreases in interest on investment securities of $13 thousand during the same period of time. Smaller increases in interest on deposits in banks and Federal Home Loan Bank dividends contributed to the remaining overall net increase. The increase in loan interest and fees was mostly due to increases in loan balances from 2016 to 2017, while the decrease in interest on investment securities was due to a decline in both investment securities balances and investment securities book yields from 2016 to 2017. Total interest expense increased $110 thousand from 2016 to 2017, with the decrease in interest expense on deposits of $63 thousand offset by an increase in interest expense on short-term and long-term debt of $173 thousand. The increase in interest expense on short-term and long-term debt is mostly due to interest expense in 2017 on $5.6 million in subordinated debentures issued on June 29, 2016. These subordinated debentures were used to redeem $5.2 million in Series A Preferred Stock on June 30, 2016, so most of the increase in interest expense on short-term and long-term debt in 2017 was offset by the absence of preferred dividends during the same period of time. The subordinated debentures issued on June 29, 2016 have an interest rate of 7%, while the Series A preferred stock redeemed on June 30, 2016 had a dividend rate of 9%. Interest expense on the debentures is a deductible expense for income tax purposes while dividend payments on the Series A preferred stock are not.

The Company recorded a negative provision expense of $85,000 for 2017, compared to a negative provision expense of $125,000 for 2016. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.12% at June 30, 2017 compared to 1.20% at December 31, 2016. Nonperforming assets ($2.9 million of nonperforming loans and $4,000 of other real estate owned) represented 0.70% of total assets at June 30, 2017, compared to 0.89% at December 31, 2016.

Noninterest income totaled $690,000 in 2017, compared with $726,000 in 2016, a decrease of $36,000 or 5.0%. The biggest noninterest income categories contributing to the decline were decreases in service charges on deposit accounts and other service charges and fees of $18,000 and $51,000, respectively, from 2017 to 2016. Offsetting the decreases was an increase of $61,000 from 2016 to 2017 in gain on sale of SBA loans. Other smaller increases and decreases contributed to the overall net decrease.

Noninterest expense totaled $3.3 million in 2017, up slightly from $3.2 million in 2016.
