Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented, "Non-performing loans have dropped compared to recent quarterly highs, but they are still higher than prior to the recession that began in 2008. While we are beginning to see signs of improvement in both the local housing and commercial real estate markets, we still believe it is important to build our reserves, as there continues to be a great deal of economic uncertainty. We believe that signs of modest improvement are evident in the fact that we have been able to reduce our funding of the allowance for loan losses by $400 thousand compared to last year, while simultaneously continuing to build our reserves by an additional $1 million compared to the same period in 2011."
Withers continued, "We are especially pleased that our net income for the quarter of $1.382 million constitutes record earnings for any third quarter in our history. Year to date net income has increased 12.37% or $403 thousand compared to the prior year. It is also notable that all of our 2012 earnings are derived from core bank operations, whereas our 2011 results also included $1.024 million of non-recurring securities gains (pre-tax). On October 18, 2012, our Board of Directors declared a third quarter dividend of $0.16 per share. The dividend will be paid on November 13, 2012, to shareholders of record as of October 31, 2012."
