Net interest margin was 3.74% for the first quarter of 2018 compared with 3.75% for the prior quarter and 3.52% for the first quarter of 2017.  Net interest income was $5.7 million for the first quarter of 2018 compared with $5.6 million for the prior quarter and $4.9 million for the first quarter of 2017.   

Nonperforming assets were $10.9 million on March 31, 2018, compared with $10.4 million on December 31, 2017 and $11.5 million on March 31, 2017.  Included in nonperforming assets for the quarter were $9.5 million of nonperforming loans and $1.4 million of other real estate owned.

Net loan recoveries were $7,000 for the first quarter of 2018 compared with net loan recoveries of $541,000 for the prior quarter and net loan charge-offs of $97,000 for the first quarter of 2017.  The allowance for loan losses was $5.4 million or 1.07% of total loans on March 31, 2018 compared with $5.1 million or 1.01% of total loans on December 31, 2017 and $4.4 million or 0.98% of total loans on March 31, 2017.

The Company's strategic goals were designed to grow the Company, increase profitability and to drive shareholder value.  With this in mind, our key strategic objectives and our current outlook are:

  • We continue to maintain a strong net interest margin and have done so since the fourth quarter of 2016.  Our focus is on loan and deposit pricing to ensure a well maintained and healthy margin.   
  • Commercial and consumer loan growth continues to show improvement with several new loan products, all while maintaining strong asset quality.  While these new offerings bring added benefits to the Company and our clients, we continue to have credit standards that do not compromise our credit quality. 
  • The origination and sales of secondary market loans continues to provide an additional source of noninterest income, along with our Wealth Management services and fee income tied to our retail products. 
  • Noninterest expenses have stabilized, however we recognize room for improvement.  Our management team continues to evaluate process efficiencies to continue to reduce operating costs.
