HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Patrick L. Ryan, Chairman, and James Hyman, President and CEO, of Hopewell Valley Community Bank (HWDY) jointly announced that the Bank’s net income for the June quarter of 2013 was $599,631, a solid 31.3% increase from the $456,664 mark for the equivalent 2012 period. On a per share basis, the quarter came in 30.8% higher than 2012 with the Bank reporting $.17 per share against $.13 for the year ago period.
Due to the balance sheet restructuring and the penalties associated with the repayment of Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) advances in the first quarter of 2013, earnings for the first six months of 2013 totaled a negative ($1,003,611) while the first half of 2012 had achieved a mark of $946,919.
Total deposits concluded the 2013 second quarter at $377,009,999, a 6.1% increase from the $355,412,696 mark at the end of June, 2012. HVCBank’s total assets for the recently completed 2013 quarter came in at $421,768,319, slightly below the $422,070,657 level recorded at June 30, 2012, reflecting the repayment of the FHLB advances. Total loans rose a strong 17% to $294,495,223 compared to the $251,751,540 mark attained in June 2012.
Total equity at the end of the recent 2013 period was $41,404,924, 3.8% below the $43,041,706 in the comparable 2012 time-frame, with the decrease due mainly to the charges associated with the first quarter FHLB repayment.
Chairman of the Board, Patrick L. Ryan, noted that, “We are very pleased with the results of the second quarter of 2013 as the Bank was able to earn $.17 per share. This performance is an excellent start to our recovery plan to mitigate the charges we took in the first quarter to improve our earnings power and restructure our balance sheet in a way which will allow us to continue to take advantage of opportunities which arise in the future.”
President and CEO, James Hyman, added, ”As anticipated, second quarter performance greatly benefited from reduced cost-of-funds following repayment of the FHLB advances in the first quarter. In particular, our 2nd quarter net interest margin improved by 9.8% to 3.47% over the first quarter 2013 margin of 3.16%, and 11.2% over 2nd quarter 2012 of 3.12%. The second quarter also saw a significant rise in our commercial loan pipeline; closings of these loans will further improve on that margin.”
