DOWNINGTOWN, Pa., July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DNB Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:DNBF), parent of DNB First, National Association, the oldest nationally-chartered community bank serving the greater Philadelphia region, today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013.

William S. Latoff, Chairman and CEO, commented: "With more than 153 years of history and as the oldest national bank in the Philadelphia region, DNB has built a strong reputation of trust. Our retail and commercial customers continue to turn to DNB for guidance and financial solutions. Building on our strength and full service capabilities, we continue to diversify and balance our revenue mix, and to effectively build our business on a number of fronts."

Income Statement Highlights

Net interest income after the provision for credit losses was $4.79 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared with $5.11 million for the same period in 2012; primarily reflecting the continuing low interest rate environment, partially offset by the company's ongoing interest expense management and a reduction in its provision for credit losses. The company reduced total interest expense 26.0% in the second quarter of 2013 compared with the prior year's second quarter, and lowered its provision for credit losses 21.0% for the year-over-year quarters.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net interest income after the provision for credit losses was $9.59 million compared with $10.05 million for the same period in 2012. First half 2013 net interest income reflected a 38.3% year-over-year decline in the company's provision for credit losses compared with first half 2012, and a 22.4% decrease in total interest expense.

Reflecting diligent management of the bank's cost of funds, including lower total interest on borrowings, the company's net interest margin increased to 3.35% in the second quarter of 2013, compared with 3.32% in the first quarter.

Non-interest income, including gains on the sale of investment securities and SBA 7(a) loans, was $1.16 million in the second quarter of 2013, equivalent to non-interest income in the second quarter of 2012. Non-interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $2.36 million, up 13.4% compared with $2.08 million for the same period in 2012. Gains on the sale of investments was $214,093 in the first half of 2013 compared with $78,744 in the first half of 2012. Fees from the company's wealth management business rose 26.7% year over year to $592,423 for the first six months of 2013 compared with $466,996 for the first six months of 2012.

Total non-interest expense remained stable year over year, with total non-interest expense in the second quarter of 2013 equaling $4.27 million compared with $4.27 million in the second quarter of 2012. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, non-interest expense was $8.66 million compared with $8.59 million for the same period in 2012.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Total deposits were $561.91 million at June 30, 2013, up 5.9% compared with $530.42 million at December 31, 2012. Growth was supported by initiatives to attract core deposits and expand customer relationships to incorporate more deposit activity. Core deposit growth contributed positively to the company's 0.52% cost of funds at June 30, 2013. The company trimmed Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings to $10 million in the first half of 2013 compared with $20 million at December 31, 2012.

Gross loans were $389.79 million, down 1.7% from $396.50 million at December 31, 2012. The decline in net loans reflect customer pay-downs of higher-rate loans and not renewing selected weaker credits. The company's loan pipeline is strong moving into the third quarter of 2013.

Non-performing loans to total loans declined to 2.60% at June 30, 2013 compared with 4.05% at March 31, 2013 and 2.63% at December 31, 2012.

William J. Hieb, President and Chief Risk & Credit Officer, noted: "Our focus on asset quality has resulted in significant improvement in the bank's ratio of NPLs to total loans. We anticipate in coming quarters that our emphasis on credit quality and ongoing reduction of non-performing assets, combined with growth initiatives and disciplined expense management, will be apparent in the company's earnings."

Total stockholders' equity was $57.40 million at June 30, 2013 compared to $56.71 million at December 31, 2012. Book value per common share was $16.18 at June 30, 2013. DNB's Tier 1 leverage ratio was 10.42%, the Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 15.22% and the total risk-based capital ratio was 16.47%, well in excess of regulatory standards for well-capitalized institutions.

Latoff concluded: "We are committed to building shareholder value by growing the DNB franchise through a diversified approach to relationship banking. We are primarily commercial-focused on the lending side, however, we believe there are many opportunities to serve retail markets, particularly in consumer lending and wealth management. As we move ahead, we will maintain high standards for risk and credit management to preserve the quality of our balance sheet."
