Third Century Bancorp Releases Earnings for Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

FRANKLIN, Ind.--()--Third Century Bancorp (the “Company”) (OTCBB: TDCB), the holding company of Mutual Savings Bank (the “Bank”), announced net income of $132,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, or $0.10 per share, compared to net income of $55,000, or $0.04 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The improvement in net income was primarily due to a $41,000 decrease in noninterest expense, a $36,000 increase in noninterest income and a $19,000 increase in net interest income.

Net interest income was $1,013,000 for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $994,000 for the first quarter of 2014. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to a decrease of $24,000, or 31.11%, in interest expense on FHLB advances. The average balance of FHLB advances was $13,500,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to $17,033,000 for the same period in 2014. The weighted average rate on FHLB advances was 1.57% during the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to 1.81% during the same period in 2014.

Noninterest income increased $36,000 to $208,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014. The improvement was primarily due to a $45,000 increase in trust department income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014.

Noninterest expense decreased $41,000 to $1,032,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014. The improvement was primarily due to the closure of one branch office in November 2014 and the related reduction in full time equivalent employees.

Total assets increased $2.5 million to $125.6 million at March 31, 2015 from $123.1 million at December 31, 2014, an increase of 2.04%. The increase in assets was evenly spread across different asset types, including an increase of $519,000 in net loans receivable, an increase of $915,000 in investment securities held to maturity, an increase of $992,000 in time deposits in other banks and an increase of $865,000 in cash and cash equivalents.

The increase in total assets was funded by an increase in deposits of $2.1 million to $95.9 million at March 31, 2015 from $93.7 million at December 31, 2014. The increase in total deposits was driven by an increase of $3.6 million, or 22.18%, in demand deposits to $19.8 million at March 31, 2015.

Stockholders’ equity increased $84,000 to $15.8 million at March 31, 2015 from $15.7 million at December 31, 2014. Stockholders’ equity increased due to the Company’s net income, offset in part by dividends paid of $38,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Average equity as a percentage of average assets increased slightly to 12.64% for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to 12.63% for the same period in 2014. Tangible book value per share increased to $12.29 at March 31, 2015 from $12.22 at December 31, 2014.
