Second Quarter 2014 compared to Second Quarter 2013

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the second quarter of 2014 increased $301,000, or 11.5 percent, compared to the second quarter of 2013. This improvement was primarily attributed to a $176,000 reduction in interest expense, which was driven by reductions in costs of time deposits, savings deposits and FHLB advances, plus an increase in interest income of $125,000, which was driven by loan growth.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income for the three months ended June 30, decreased $398,000, or 38.9 percent, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease was due primarily to losses recognized on the sale of securities of $16,000 in 2014 compared to gains of $268,000 in 2014. Other factors contributing to the decrease in non-interest income were declines of $165,000 in VISA-related fees due to the assignment of merchant agreements to a third party, which was offset by a similar decline in non-interest expense, and $100,000 in secondary market lending fees due to a reduction in mortgage loans originated for sale to Fannie Mae. Offsetting these declines was an increase of $120,000 due to an impairment loss recognized in 2013.

Non-Interest Expense

For the three months ended June 30, non-interest expense totaled $3.2 million, which was relatively flat compared to the same period in 2013.

Six Months ended June 30, compared to the Six Months ended June 30, 2013

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the first six months of 2014 increased $519,000 compared to the same period in 2013. This improvement was driven primarily by a $389,000 reduction in interest expense, which was driven by reductions in costs of time deposits, savings deposits and FHLB advances, plus an increase of $130,000 in interest income due to loan growth.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income for the six months ended June 30, decreased $271,000, or 13.5 percent, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease was due primarily to losses recognized on the sale of securities of $17,000 in 2014 compared to gains of $271,000 in 2014. Other factors contributing to the decrease in non-interest income were declines of $256,000 in VISA-related fees due to the assignment of merchant agreements to a third party, which were offset by reductions in non-interest expense, and $122,000 in secondary market lending fees due to reduced originations of mortgage loans for sale to Fannie Mae. Offsetting these declines was an increase of $120,000 due to an impairment loss recognized in 2013 and a gain of $138,000 due to the sale of the Heathsville branch in the first quarter of 2014.

Non-Interest Expense

For the six months ended June 30, non-interest expenses totaled $6.3 million, a decrease of $172,000, or 2.7 percent, compared to the same period in 2013. This decrease is primarily the result of a reduction in salaries and benefits of $154,000.

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased $10.0 million, or 3.0 percent, to $341.2 million during the six months ended June 30. This was primarily due to loan growth of $8.5 million, or 3.4 percent, and an increase in bank owned life insurance of $2.1 million. On the liability side of the balance sheet for the same time frame, the deposit mix improved as non-interest-bearing deposits grew by $1.0 million and time deposit balances shrank by $1.6 million. Borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank increased by $10.0 million. Capital increased $740,000 due to improved earnings, net of reductions in accumulated other comprehensive losses.

Asset quality

During the first six months of 2014, asset quality improved. Non- performing assets, excluding troubled debt restructures (TDRs) declined by $2.0 million to $4.7 million, or 1.37 percent of assets. Classified assets decreased by $2.4 million during the same period to $9.1 million or 22.6 percent of tier 1 capital plus the allowance for loan losses, due primarily to improved performance of one large credit relationship and the charge-off of another.
