For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Company reported net income of $14,000 or $.01 basic and diluted earnings per share. Net income totaled $38,000 or $.03 basic and diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. A decrease in loan interest income and higher non-interest expense lowered net income compared to the same period a year earlier.
Net interest income decreased 6% to $676,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2015. Total interest income declined $66,000 or 8%, while interest expense fell $26,000, or 18%. Net interest margin for the quarter was 4.35%, compared to 4.50% a year earlier.
Loan loss provisions fell to $20,000 for the quarter-ended September 30, 2015, compared to $60,000 for the year-earlier period. A regular assessment of loan loss allowance adequacy indicated that these provisions were required to maintain an appropriate allowance level. Changes in volume, composition and quality of the loan portfolio, as well as actual loan loss experience, will influence the need for future loan loss provisions.
Non-interest income totaled $141,000, for both the current period and the year-earlier period. Non-interest expense increased $25,000 or 3%. Repossessed property expense increased to $65,000, from $25,000 for the same period a year earlier. Demolition of a non-bank property added approximately $40,000 to non-interest expense during the quarter. Salaries and employee benefits decreased $64,000, or 18%.
At September 30, 2015, total assets were $66.5 million, an increase of $1.6 million or 2.5% from $64.9 million at June 30, 2015. During fiscal first quarter 2016, cash and cash equivalents increased $1.5 million and investment securities increased $1.1 million. Total loans declined $508,000, or 1.1% and interest-bearing time deposits with other banks declined by $900,000 from June 30, 2015 to September 30, 2015. The growth in assets was funded by a $2.2 million increase in total deposits.
Loans delinquent 90 days or more increased 31% to $1.1 million, or 2.5% of total loans at September 30, 2015. Three months earlier, non-performing loans were at $862,000 or 1.9% of total loans. Non-performing assets, which includes non-performing loans, increased 11% and were $1.3 million, or 1.9% of total assets, at September 30, 2015. Non-performing assets totaled $1.2 million, or 1.8% of assets, at June 30, 2015.

The allowance for loan losses was $515,000 at September 30, 2015, compared to $526,000 at June 30, 2015. Loan loss allowances were 1.14% of total loans at September 30, 2015, and 1.15% at June 30, 2015. Net loans charged off during the quarter ended September 30, 2015 totaled $30,000, compared to $70,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Periodic provisions to loan loss allowances reflect management’s view of risk in the Bank’s entire portfolio due to a number of dynamic factors, which include, but are not limited to, current economic conditions and loan delinquency trends. Management considered the level of loan loss allowances at September 30, 2015 to be adequate to cover probable incurred losses inherent in the loan portfolio at that date.
Total deposits were $46.8 million as of September 30, 2015, compared to $44.6 million three months earlier. Total borrowings were unchanged at $10.5 million for quarters-ended September 30, 2015 and June 30, 2015.
Shareholders’ equity was $8.7 million or 13.1% of total assets at September 30, 2015. Factors affecting shareholders’ equity during the quarter included net income, quarterly cash dividends of $.035 per share, a $26,000 net increase in the market value of securities available for sale, and a $9,000 decrease in equity components associated with a stock-based employee benefit plan.
