Income Statement Highlights

Net income to common shareholders in the first quarter of 2014 was $541,000 or $0.21 per common diluted share, up 33.6% compared with $408,000 or $0.16 per common diluted share in the first quarter of 2013. The increase is the result of client growth and the elimination of preferred stock dividends.

Net income to common shareholders declined 9.1% when compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 when net income to common shareholders totaled $595,000, or $0.23 per common diluted share. The decline is the result of compensation increases effective January 1, 2014.

Net interest income in the first quarter of 2014 was $2.24 million, a 5% year-over-year increase compared with net interest income of $2.14 million in the first quarter of 2013, and a 2% increase as compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The Company had no provision for loan losses in the quarters presented.

Total non-interest expense in the first quarter of 2014 was $1.69 million compared with $1.67 million in the first quarter of 2013 and $1.58 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Stevenson noted that the increase in non-interest expense when compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 primarily reflects the compensation adjustments previously noted as well as higher professional fees.

The Company reported a 4.12% net interest margin in the first quarter of 2014, compared with 4.17% in the first quarter of 2013 (excluding one-time loan prepayment fees). "The low interest rate environment coupled with intense competitive pressure for quality loan business continues to be a challenge and we are pleased with the stability in our interest margin over the last several quarters," noted Stevenson.

Balance Sheet Reflects Year-Over-Year Growth, Continued Asset Quality Improvement

Total loans at March 31, 2014 were $186.72 million compared with $154.20 million at March 31, 2013, an increase of 21.1%. In each of the last four quarters, average loans outstanding have increased. This consistent track record of growth is primarily the result of new commercial real estate loans, roughly half of which came from loans collateralized by investor-owned properties.

"We continue to experience solid loan demand in our private and charter school sector, and also a good mix of activity from other market segments, including nonprofit organizations, multifamily housing and investor-owned real estate," Stevenson explained. One of the Company's goals in 2014 is to expand its commercial loans, a core competency of the Company defined as owner-occupied commercial real estate, working capital lines of credit, and equipment lending. The Company has designed its incentive programs to judiciously build that segment of the loan portfolio.

Total client deposits at March 31, 2014 were $203.09 million compared with $163.89 million at March 31, 2013. Similar to loan growth, average client deposits has increased in each of the last four quarters. Demand deposits, including low cost interest-bearing checking accounts, were $103.48 million in the first quarter of 2014 compared with $75.44 million in first quarter 2013, contributing to a 28 basis point cost of funds in the first quarter of 2014. The Company's loan to total deposit ratio was 91% at March 31, 2014.

Reflecting the Company's continued asset quality improvement, total non-performing assets (NPAs), including performing troubled debt restructurings, declined to $3.85 million at March 31, 2014, or 1.66% of total assets, compared with $5.08 million or 2.66% of total assets at March 31, 2013. The Company's loan loss reserve as a percentage of non-performing loans was 107.91% at March 31, 2014. Stevenson noted that the underlying circumstances for those loans that are classified as non-accrual continue to improve.

Operational Efficiency Improvement, Capital Adequacy, and Outlook

The Company's efficiency ratio was 69.11% for the first quarter of 2014, down from 71.84% in the first quarter of 2013, reflecting interest and non-interest income growth. The ratio was up slightly compared with the fourth quarter of 2013, primarily reflecting an increase in compensation costs. Stevenson noted that both client growth and identifying new fee income-generating capabilities are key toward improving the Company's efficiency ratio.

The Bank remained well-capitalized by accepted regulatory standards as of March 31, 2014, with a tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.39%, a tier 1 capital ratio of 12.45%, and a total risk based capital ratio of 13.70%.

"Demonstrated success in competing for loans and deposits, increased market share and a healthy balance sheet give us great reason to be confident about the Bank's future," concluded Stevenson. "Our competitive advantages will ultimately translate into continued growth in clients and shareholder value."
