Third Century Bancorp Releases Earnings for Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017

FRANKLIN, Ind.--()--Third Century Bancorp (“Company”)(OTCPINK: TDCB), the holding company for Mutual Savings Bank (“Bank”) announced it had net income of $219,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $172,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share. The improvement in net income for the third quarter 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 was primarily driven by a $158,000 increase in net interest income. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company recorded net income of $559,000, or $0.47 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $465,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, or $0.38 per basic and diluted share. The improvement in net income for the 2017 nine month period as compared to the same period in 2016 was primarily due to a $319,000 increase in net interest income.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2017, net income increased $47,000, or 27.33%, to $219,000 as compared to $172,000 for the same period in the prior year. The increase in net income for the three month period ended September 30, 2017 was primarily a result of a $158,000 or 14.75% increase in net interest income, which was achieved through an increase in interest income of $201,000 or 16.95%, partially offset by a $43,000 or 37.39% increase in interest expense. The increase in interest income was due to an increase in the average yield on interest-earning assets, along with higher average loan balances. The increase in interest expense was primarily due to higher average balances of interest bearing liabilities and a higher average rate paid on interest bearing liabilities.

The increase in net interest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was partially offset by a $29,000 increase in provision for loan losses compared to the same period in 2016.

The increase in net income for the three month period ended September 30, 2017 was also impacted by a $4,000 decrease in noninterest income, a $42,000 increase in noninterest expense and a $36,000 increase in income tax expense. The decrease in noninterest income was due to decreases in gains on sales of loans, trust income, and deposit fee and service charge income for the three month period ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the prior year period. The increase in noninterest expense for the quarter ended September 30, 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. The increase in income tax expense was due to the increase in income before income tax for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the same period in the prior year.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2017, net income increased $94,000, or 20.22%, to $559,000 from $465,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016. The increase in net income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2017 was primarily due to an increase in net interest income of $319,000, or 10.11%, to $3,475,000 from $3,156,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016. The increase in net interest income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2017 was due to a $405,000, or 11.61%, increase in interest income partially offset by a $86,000, or 25.90%, increase in interest expense. The increase in interest income was due to an increase in the average yield on interest-earning assets, along with higher average loan balances. The increase in interest expense was primarily due to higher average balances of interest bearing liabilities and a higher average rate paid on interest bearing liabilities.

The increase in net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was partially offset by a $90,000 increase in provision for loan losses compared to the same period in 2016. The increase in provision for loan losses was primarily driven by credit quality factors including net loan charge-offs of $259,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to net loan recoveries of $9,000 for the same period in 2016.

The increase in net income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2017 was also impacted by a $3,000 decrease in noninterest income, a $65,000 increase in noninterest expense and a $67,000 increase in income tax expense. The decrease in noninterest income was due to decreases in gains on sales of loans, trust income, and deposit fee and service charge income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 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. The increase in income tax expense was due to the increase in income before income tax for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the same period in the prior year.

Total assets increased $18.0 million to $153.9 million at September 30, 2017 from $135.9 million at December 31, 2016, an increase of 13.2%. The increase was primarily due to a $12.3 million, or 64.4%, increase in cash and investments, primarily funded by a $17.5 million, or 17.8%, increase in total deposits and a $500,000, or 2.3%, increase in FHLB advances. At September 30, 2017, the weighted average rate of all Federal Home Loan Bank advances was 1.45% compared to 1.35% at December 31, 2016, and the weighted average maturity was 2.6 years at September 30, 2017 compared to 3.5 years at December 31, 2016.

The allowance for loan losses decreased by $167,000, or 13.3%, to $1,080,000 at September 30, 2017 compared to $1,247,000 at December 31, 2016. The decline was due to net loan charge-offs of $259,000, partially offset by the provision for loan losses of $92,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The allowance for loan losses totaled 101.41% of non-performing loans and 0.92% of total loans as of September 30, 2017.
