EUGENE, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Summit Bank (OTC Pink: SBKO) reported net income for the first quarter of 20 cents per fully diluted share, up 24% compared to first quarter 2016 earnings of 16 cents per fully diluted share. Net interest income for the quarter was $3.5 million, up 23% from $2.8 million in first quarter of 2016. Total non-interest income increased from $156 thousand in first quarter 2016 to $391 thousand in first quarter 2017, largely the result of a $148 thousand increase in SBA loan activity. Non-interest expense was controlled, relative to revenue growth, increasing 14% from $1.8 million in first quarter 2016 to $2.1 million in this first quarter of 2017. Our Bank increased the provision for loan losses from $271 thousand to $554 thousand. Net income for the quarter increased by 31.4% compared to first quarter 2016 at $762 thousand versus $580 thousand.
Our Bank continues to experience significant growth in its loan and deposit portfolios. Total net loans as of March 31, 2017, were $233.6 million, representing a 21.4% increase over the first quarter 2016 total of $192.5 million. Total deposits increased by $41.8 million to $259.9 million or 19.2% over the previous year.
“Increases in loan volumes over this time last year and a robust quarter from our SBA group propelled the first quarter results,” said Craig Wanichek, president and CEO. “These factors, as well as managing expenses, in light of the growth, and increased contribution from our Central Oregon group, more than offset the higher loan loss provision for the quarter and culminated in solid earnings growth. Our year-to-date ROE of 11.3% and ROA of 1.1% remain strong relative to other banks in the region.”
“One of our goals this year is to attract more manufacturing, wholesale and distribution clients who utilize lines of credit and equipment loans,” said Wanichek. “We were very encouraged this loan category grew 25% over this time last year. Additionally, we believe because of the structure of our balance sheet we will be in a position to help our clients capitalize on rising interest rates. We have already increased the earnings credit on our clients’ business deposits.”
Our Bank concluded a very successful capital raise during the quarter and together with solid earnings over the last four quarters, Summit has increased its levels of capital simultaneously with strong loan and deposit growth. Total shareholders’ equity at March 31, 2017, was $31.3 million, compared to the Bank’s $22.3 million total as of March 31, 2016.
“Our cash and securities portfolio of $49.2 million is larger than it has ever been and our capital has also grown 40.2% from last year at this time,” said Scott Goldstein, CFO. “At the same time, our non-performing assets have remained very low at 0.5% of total assets.”
“We were humbled by the support and trust of the community during our capital raise,” said Wanichek. “The encouragement we have received by both the Eugene/Springfield and Central Oregon communities we serve has been tremendous. The additional capital will allow us to help more clients in both of our markets. Our Bank was also honored this quarter to be recognized by S&P Global Market Intelligence as one of the top performing community banks in the nation for 2016.”
Summit Bank will hold its Annual Shareholder meeting at 5:00 pm, Thursday, April 20 at The Downtown Athletic Club in its Club Room.
