Tom Wayne, President and Chief Financial Officer, reported, “I am very pleased with the Bank’s performance in the third quarter of 2017. Our net income and net income available to common stockholders increased from 2016 to 2017, and we saw strong growth on the asset and liability sides of the balance sheet. It was also pleasing to see our noninterest expense remain relatively flat and our efficiency ratio improve year over year, reflecting our focus in 2017 of combining growth with expense management. Lastly, we continue to pay close attention to asset quality, and nonperforming assets declined 14.3% from December 31, 2016 to September 30, 2017, and was 0.71% of total assets as of September 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 exceeded all regulatory requirements at September 30, 2017. The Company’s stockholders’ equity was 7.2% and 7.0% of total assets as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. Tangible book value per common share was $12.66 as of September 30, 2017, compared to $11.37 as of December 31, 2016, an increase of $1.29 or 11.3% (15.2% annualized).

Net interest income was $3.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, a $451,000 increase from $3.3 million during the same period in 2016. Total interest and dividend income increased approximately $515,000 from 2016 to 2017, with increases in interest on loans and fees on loans of $464,000 accounting for most of the increase. Smaller increases in other interest and dividend income categories 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. Total interest expense increased $64,000 from 2016 to 2017 due mostly to an increase in interest expense on short-term and long-term debt of $56,000. The increase in interest expense on short-term and long-term debt is mostly due to greater interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank advances due to higher borrowings in 2017 compared to 2016.

The Company recorded a negative provision expense of $40,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared to a negative provision expense of $100,000 for the comparable period in 2016. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.08% at September 30, 2017 compared to 1.20% at December 31, 2016. Nonperforming assets ($3.0 million of nonperforming loans and $4,000 of other real estate owned) represented 0.71% of total assets at September 30, 2017, compared to 0.89% at December 31, 2016.

Noninterest income totaled $684,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared with $978,000 for the same period in 2016, reflecting a decrease of $294,000 or 30.1%. The biggest noninterest income category contributing to the decline was a gain on sale of securities of $275 thousand in the 2016 period with no gain on sale of securities in the 2017 period. Other smaller increases and decreases in noninterest income contributed to the overall net decrease.

Noninterest expense totaled $3.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, up slightly from $3.3 million in the comparable 2016 period.
