For the quarter ended March 31, 2020, the Company reported net income of $52,000 or $.04 basic and diluted earnings per share. For the same period last year, the Company reported net income of $105,000 or $.09 per share. Net income fell, compared to third quarter 2019 results, due to an increase in non-interest expense.

Total interest income increased slightly to $829,000, while interest expense decreased $5,000 or 3%, to $173,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2019. As a result, net interest income increased $6,000, or 1%, for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Loan loss provisions for third quarter 2020 totaled $15,000. Loan loss provisions were $9,000 for the same period a year earlier. A regular assessment of loan loss allowance adequacy indicated that these provisions were necessary 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 loss provisions.

Third quarter 2020 non-interest income totaled $124,000 compared to $130,000 a year earlier. Service charges on deposit accounts decreased $4,000 or 7%. Non-interest expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 rose $51,000, or 8% to $723,000, compared to $672,000 for the same period a year earlier. This change primarily resulted from salaries and employee benefits $40,000, or 12% increase, and legal and professional fees $29,000, or 62% increase, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

For the nine-month period ended March 31, 2020, the Company reported net income of $267,000 or $.23 earnings per share. Net income was $201,000 or $.17 earnings per share for the year-earlier period. Net income improved due to increases in net interest income and non-interest income.

Total interest income increased $66,000, or 3%. Interest expense decreased $2,000 or less than 1%. Consequently, net interest income before provisions for loan losses increased $68,000 or 4%, compared to the same period in 2019.

For the nine-month period ended March 31, 2020, loan loss provisions were $45,000, compared to $39,000 recorded for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2019. Loan loss provisions reflect management’s assessment of various risk factors including, but not limited to, the level and trend of loan delinquencies and losses.

Total non-interest income increased $47,000, or 13%. Accounting for part of this change, service charges on deposit accounts increased $10,000, or 6%, and sale of repossessed property produced a $1,000 gain, compared to a $12,000 loss on sale of repossessed real estate for the year-earlier period. Total non-interest expense increased $21,000, or 1%, compared to the same nine-month period during the prior year.

As of March 31, 2020, total assets were $73.7 million and $72.0 million at June 30, 2019; the end of the prior fiscal year. Cash and interest-bearing deposits totaled $9.4 million at March 31, 2020.

Non-performing assets included $30,000 in Other Real Estate Owned (“OREO”) and other repossessed properties at March 31, 2020, compared to $109,000 nine months earlier.

The balance of the loan loss allowance increased 3% to $520,000 or 0.99% of total loans at March 31, 2020, compared to $504,000, or 0.95% of total loans at June 30, 2019.
