Balance Sheet: March 31, 2021, compared to December 31, 2020

Total assets decreased $265.9 million to $595.7 million at March 31, 2021 from $861.6 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease was primarily the result of decreases of $276.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and $24.6 million in loans held for sale, offset by increases of $28.2 million in loans receivable, $4.3 million in investment securities, $1.7 million in right-of-use asset and $760,000 in mortgage servicing rights. Cash and cash equivalents decreased $276.4 million to $138.2 million at March 31, 2021 from $414.6 million at December 31, 2020 as a result of anticipated outflows of retail deposits in our core deposit from certain accounts.

Total liabilities decreased $266.8 million, or 32.4%, to $555.9 million at March 31, 2021, from $822.7 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease in total liabilities was primarily from a $253.6 million decrease in deposits, $13.4 million decrease in advances from the PPPLF, $1.0 million decrease in other liabilities offset by a $1.7 million increase in operating lease liabilities. Deposits decreased $253.6 million, or 34.7%, to $477.2 million at March 31, 2021 from $730.8 million at December 31, 2020. Our core deposits (consisting of demand deposits, money market, passbook and statement and checking accounts) decreased $250.7 million, or 37.5%, to $418.0 million at March 31, 2021 from $668.7 million at December 31, 2020. As previously discussed, there was an anticipated decrease in certain retail accounts in our core deposits during the first quarter of 2021. Certificates of deposit decreased $2.9 million, or 4.7%, to $59.2 million at March 31, 2021 from $62.1 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease in certificates of deposit was primarily the result of a decrease in retail growth of certificates of deposit.

Total shareholders’ equity increased $1.0 million to $39.9 million at March 31, 2021 compared to $38.9 million at December 31, 2020 primarily as a result of net income of $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, share based compensation expense of $61,000, ESOP shares committed to be released of $36,000 and a stock option exercise of $21,000. Offsetting these increases was other comprehensive loss of $232,000 due to the fair value adjustments, net of deferred tax, on the investment securities available-for-sale portfolio and $263,000 in treasury stock repurchases primarily as part of the stock repurchase plan approved in April 2019.

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we recorded net charge-offs of $172,000 compared to net recoveries of $1,000 received for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

The change in fair value of loans held for sale decreased $715,000 to a loss of ($709,000) for the three months end March 31, 2021 compared to a gain of $6,000 in same period in 2020.

Salaries and employee benefits increased as full time equivalent (FTE) employees increased to one-hundred thirty-nine as of March 31, 2021, from one-hundred one as of March 31, 2020, primarily a result of the expansion of the Company’s lending and business banking operations.
