First Resource Bank Achieves Record Quarterly Net Income; a 9% Increase Over the Previous Quarter

EXTON, PA / ACCESSWIRE / October 24, 2019 / First Resource Bank (OTCQX:FRSB) announced financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was $690,729, which compares to $631,520 for the previous quarter and $554,653 for the third quarter of the prior year.

Highlights for the third quarter of 2019 included:

  • Net income of $690,729 was the highest quarterly profit in the Bank’s history
  • Net income grew 9% over the quarter ended June 30, 2019 and 25% over the quarter ended September 30, 2018
  • Total interest income grew 5% over the quarter ended June 30, 2019 and 21% over the quarter ended September 30, 2018
  • Completed construction on the Wayne branch in anticipation of the October 15 opening
  • Named a 2019 Best Place to Work by the Philadelphia Business Journal

Glenn B. Marshall, President & CEO, stated, “The record profitability we experienced in the third quarter was remarkable as we fight margin compression and add overhead associated with our third branch location in Wayne. Intense competition in our market has created irrational pricing for both loans and deposits, yet we have minimized our margin compression while continuing to grow the bank. Year-over-year loan growth of $40 million, or 17%, was funded by deposit growth of $41.8 million, or 19%. This balance sheet growth is critical to our long term success and we are very pleased with the growth we have demonstrated over the past year.”

Total interest income grew 5% when comparing the third quarter to the second quarter of 2019. This increase was driven by 2% loan growth during the third quarter.

Total interest income rose 21% from $3,315,762 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 to $3,998,838 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This increase was supported by 17% loan growth when comparing September 30, 2019 to a year prior and a 15 basis point improvement in loan yields when comparing the third quarter of 2018 to the third quarter of 2019.

Total interest income was $11,414,647 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, a 20% increase over the same period in the prior year. This increase was driven by 17% loan growth when comparing September 30, 2019 to a year prior and a 24 basis point increase in loan yields when comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2019 to the same period in the prior year.

Total interest expense rose 7% when comparing the third quarter to the second quarter of 2019. This increase was driven by a 5 basis point increase in the cost of money market accounts and a 3 basis point increase in the cost of certificates of deposit during the quarter, as well as an 8% increase in certificate of deposit balances as compared to the prior quarter.

Total interest expense rose 38% from $822,866 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 to $1,137,328 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The vast majority of this increased expense was related to a 34 basis point increase in the cost of money market accounts and a 44 basis point increase in the cost of certificates of deposit, year over year. Overall interest expense was mitigated by strong growth in noninterest bearing deposits, which increased 69% when comparing September 30, 2019 to the year prior.

Total interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $3,172,700, a 50% increase over the same period in the prior year. The bulk of this increase is attributed to a 34 basis point increase in the cost of money market accounts and a 68 basis point increase in the cost of certificates of deposit when comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2019 to the same period in the prior year.

Net interest income was $2,861,510 for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 as compared to $2,754,410 for the previous quarter, an improvement of 4%. The net interest margin declined 4 basis points from 3.85% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 to 3.81% for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The overall yield on interest earning assets decreased 2 basis points during the third quarter led by a 2 basis point decrease in loan yields to 5.57%. The cost of interest bearing deposits increased 5 basis points during the third quarter to 1.74%, with the majority of that increase attributed to higher cost money market accounts and certificates of deposit. Strong growth in non-interest bearing deposits partially offset the increased cost of interest bearing deposits. The total cost of deposits increased 2 basis points from 1.42% in the second quarter of 2019 to 1.44% in the third quarter of 2019.

Net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $8,241,947 a 12% improvement over net interest income of $7,384,069 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. This growth was driven by a 21% increase in loan interest income.

The provision for loan losses decreased from $158,992 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 to $84,557 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 due to a decrease in new loan volume. The provision for loan losses decreased from $109,544 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, to $84,557 for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

The provision for loan losses increased from $435,187 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 to $719,501 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as a result of one problem loan that required specific reserves due to new information obtained regarding the value of the collateral during the first quarter of 2019.

Non-interest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was $226,669, as compared to $262,597 for the previous quarter and $127,457 for the third quarter of the prior year. Swap referral fee income of $107,160 was received in the third quarter of 2019, as compared to $114,100 in the second quarter of 2019 and none in the third quarter of 2018. There were no gains on sales of SBA loans recognized during the third or second quarter of 2019, as compared to $12,631 during the third quarter of 2018.

Non-interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $645,521 as compared to $382,929 for the same period in the prior year.

There was $24,463 in gains on sales of SBA loans in the first nine months of 2019 as compared to $41,356 in the first nine months of 2018.

Non-interest expense increased $70 thousand, or 3%, in the three months ended September 30, 2019 as compared to the prior quarter. The increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and benefits, advertising and data processing costs, partially offset by a decrease in professional fees. Non-interest expense increased $320 thousand, or 18%, when comparing the third quarter of 2019 to the third quarter of 2018, with all expense categories increasing during this time period.

Non-interest expense increased $653 thousand, or 12%, in the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in the prior year.

During the third quarter, non-interest bearing deposits increased $460 thousand, or 1%, from $47.4 million at June 30, 2019 to $47.8 million at September 30, 2019.

Total deposits grew $41.8 million, or 19%, from $222.6 million at September 30, 2018 to $264.4 million at September 30, 2019, with 69% growth in non-interest bearing deposits, 8% growth in money market balances, and 17% growth in certificates of deposit, partially offset by a 6% decline in interest bearing checking account balances. Total checking balances represented 22% of total deposits at September 30, 2019, a significant increase from 18% at December 31, 2018.

The loan portfolio grew $4.3 million, or 2%, during the third quarter from $270.5 million at September 30, 2019 to $274.8 million at September 30, 2019, with 5% growth in commercial real estate loans, partially offset by declines in commercial business, construction, and consumer loans. Year-to-date net loan growth in 2019 was $30.1 million, or 12%, with the majority of that growth in commercial real estate and construction loans.

The loan portfolio grew $40.4 million, or 17%, from $234.4 million at September 30, 2018 to $274.8 million at September 30, 2019, with the majority of that growth in commercial real estate and construction loans.
