Third Century Bancorp Releases Earnings for Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

FRANKLIN, Ind.--()--Third Century Bancorp (“Company”) (OTCPINK:TDCB), the holding company for Mutual Savings Bank (“Bank”) announced it recorded net income of $167,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $161,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, net income increased $6,000, or 3.73%, to $167,000 as compared to $161,000 for the same period in the prior year. The increase in net income for the three month period ended March 31, 2017 as compared to the prior period was a result of a $101,000 increase in net interest income, which was achieved through an increase in interest income of $115,000 partially offset by a $14,000 increase in interest expense. The increase in interest income was due to higher average loan balances. The increase in interest expense was due to higher average balances of interest bearing liabilities.

The increase in net income for the three month period ended March 31, 2017 as compared to the same period in the prior year was limited by an $8,000 decrease in noninterest income, a $29,000 increase in provision for loan losses, a $54,000 increase in noninterest expense and a $4,000 increase in income tax expense. During the three month period ended March 31, 2017, the Company recorded $30,000 in provision for loan losses compared to $1,000 for the same period in the prior year due to changes in the loan portfolio, including higher commercial real estate loan balances. The increase in noninterest expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period in the prior year was primarily due to increases in wages and benefits, advertising expenses, and data processing expenses.

Total assets increased $4.1 million to $140.0 million at March 31, 2017 from $135.9 million at December 31, 2016, an increase of 2.98%. The increase was primarily due to a $4.1 million increase in cash and cash equivalents and a $1.2 million increase in net loans, primarily funded by a $4.4 million increase in total deposits.

Deposits increased $4.4 million, or 4.45%, to $102.7 million at March 31, 2017 from $98.3 million at December 31, 2016. Federal Home Loan Bank advances and other borrowings decreased $500,000, or 2.33%, to $21.0 million at March 31, 2017 from $21.5 million at December 31, 2016. At March 31, 2017, the weighted average rate of all Federal Home Loan Bank advances was 1.30% compared to 1.35% at December 31, 2016, and the weighted average maturity was 3.6 years at March 31, 2017 compared to 3.5 years at December 31, 2016.

Stockholders’ equity was $15.9 million at March 31, 2017 compared to $15.8 million at December 31, 2016. Stockholders’ equity increased due to net income of $167,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, partially offset by cash dividends paid of $60,000. Equity as a percentage of assets decreased to 11.35% at March 31, 2017 compared to 11.61% at December 31, 2016 due to the growth in total assets.
