For the three months ended September 30, 2014, net income increased $25,000, or 32.78%, to $101,000 as compared to $76,000 for the same period in the prior year. The increase in net income for the three month period ended September 30, 2014 was primarily a result of a $9,000 improvement in noninterest income and a $50,000 decrease in noninterest expenses, partially offset by a decrease of $18,000 in net interest income and an increase of $17,000 in income tax expense. The increase in noninterest income was due to an increase of $68,000 in trust income for the three month period ended September 30, 2014, partially offset by reduction in other noninterest income. Net interest income decreased due to a $76,000 reduction in interest income, partially offset by a $58,000 decrease in interest expense. Interest income declined due to a reduction of $85,000 in interest income on loans, partially offset by an increase of $9,000 in interest income on investment securities and other interest earning assets. The reduction of interest expense for the three month period ended September 30, 2014 was comprised of a $16,000 decline in interest expense on deposits and a $42,000 reduction in interest expense on FHLB advances.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2014, net income decreased $71,000, or 24.22% to $221,000 as compared to $292,000 for the same period in the prior year. The decline in net income for the nine month period was primarily a result of a decrease of $98,000 in net interest income, which was primarily driven by a $249,000 decrease in interest income, partially offset by a $151,000 decrease in interest expense. In addition, noninterest income decreased by $29,000 compared to the prior year period.

Total assets increased $264,000 to $123.9 million at September 30, 2014 from $123.7 million at December 31, 2013, an increase of 0.21%. Total assets increased due to a $2.4 million increase in cash and cash equivalents and interest-earning time deposits and a $2.7 million increase in investment securities, partially offset by a $2.8 million decrease in loans receivable. Total deposits increased $3.0 million to $93.4 million at September 30, 2014 from $90.4 million at December 31, 2013, an increase of 3.28%.

On November 6, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per share payable to shareholders of record on December 15, 2014. The dividend will be paid on January 2, 2015.

The Board of Directors also announced the decision to close the branch banking facility commonly known as the Edinburgh Branch, located at 206 South Main Street, Edinburgh, Indiana as of the close of business on November 29, 2014. The Edinburgh Branch was acquired from Somerville National Bank in the first quarter of 2008. The board determined that due to economic, competitive and other factors, the branch has not been successful in obtaining the desired levels of growth and profitability. This closure, along with the elimination and consolidation of various staffing positions has resulted in an overall reduction-in-force at the Bank, from 42 full-time equivalent employees as of June 30, 2014 to an estimated 34 full-time equivalent employees projected by the end of the 2014.

Founded in 1890, Mutual Savings Bank is a full-service financial institution based in Johnson County, Indiana. In addition to its main office at 80 East Jefferson Street, Franklin, Indiana, the bank operates branches in Franklin at 1124 North Main Street and the Franklin United Methodist Community, as well as in Edinburgh, Nineveh and Trafalgar, Indiana.
