Don Haake, President and CEO stated, “We are very pleased with the banks financial performance through the first 6-months of the year and the continued steady growth of our business. Furthermore, our pipeline of new business is healthy and our relationships with our customers deepening. I remain impressed by the efforts of our employees and grateful for the relationships they continue to forge within the markets we serve.” President Haake added “Loans at the end of the second quarter totaled $204.7 million, up $16.3 million or 8.6% over year-end with total deposits increasing to $179.6 million, up $15.7 million, or 9.6% over year-end.

Capital
Stockholders’ equity totaled $29.0 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $27.5 million at December 31, 2016. All of the Bank’s capital ratios remain strong and in excess of the current regulatory definition of a “well capitalized” institution. At June 30, 2017, the Bank’s Tier One Leverage Capital Ratio was 13.04% and the Bank’s total risk based capital ratio was 16.39%. In addition, the new Common Equity Tier 1 Ratio was 15.14% for the second quarter, which is in excess of the 4.5% current minimum regulatory threshold and the fully transitioned ratio of 7.0% for the year 2019.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income was $2,083,000 for the quarter ending June 30, 2017, compared to $1,889,000, for the quarter ending June 30, 2016 – an increase of $194,000, or 10.3%. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net interest income was $4,020,000, compared to $3,775,000 for the same period in 2016 – an increase of $245,000 or 6.5%. The Bank’s net interest margin (NIM) for the six months ended June 30, 2017 remained strong at 3.88%, which was the same for the period ended June 30, 2016.

Non-Interest Expense
Total non-interest expense for the quarter ending June 30, 2017 increased $53,000, or 4.5%, to $1,238,000, compared to $1,185,000, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, total non-interest expense increased $99,000, or 4.3%, to $2,406,000, compared to $2,307,000 for the same period last year. With the Newark Branch opening in November of last year, the increase in expense is primarily related to the new branch operations and in-line with budget forecasts and targeted expense control.

Asset Quality
The bank had one non-performing loan totaling $100,000 at June 30, 2017, as compared to $225,000 for the same period last year. It should be noted that as of the end of the quarter we experienced a temporary increase in loans 30 to 89 days past due of $3.2 million; however, payments were received shortly after quarter-end, with all but one loan not being brought current. We have been in contact with that borrower and will work to resolve situation in a satisfactory fashion. One non-performing loan paid-off in February 2017 in the amount of $110,000. We still have an OREO property on the books for $1.25 million, with a value of $1.45 million based on a current appraisal, which is currently under contract to sell this property.
