Highlights for the first quarter March 31, 2020:
Net income available to common shareholders increased $144,000, or 2.0%, to $7.2 million, or $0.61 per basic common share and $0.60 per diluted common share for the first quarter of 2020, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $7.1 million, or $0.60 per basic common share and $0.59 per diluted common share for the same quarter in 2019.
Net interest income increased 13.2% to $15.2 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $13.4 million for the same quarter of 2019.
The following is a recap of the significant items that impacted the first quarter 2020 period:
Interest income increased $3.2 million, or 17.4%, for the first quarter of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher loan volumes. In addition, a $350,000 increase in interest income from federal funds sold and deposits with banks also contributed to the increase in interest income for the first quarter of 2020. Interest expense increased $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher deposit volumes.
The provision for loan losses increased $696,000 to $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019. The increase in the provision was primarily due to the increasing loan allowance, reflecting the estimated probable increase of credit risk from pandemic on our borrowers as of 3/31/2020, as well as the increased loan volumes.
For the first quarter of 2020, non-interest income increased $69,000, compared to the same periods of 2019, with the increase primarily attributable to increased fee income from deposit accounts, partially offset by loss on sale of other real estate owned (OREO).
Non-interest expense increased $709,000 for the first quarter 2020, compared to the same periods of 2019, primarily due to an increase in compensation, data processing cost, and FDIC insurance assessment, partially offset by decrease in professional service fees. The increases in non-interest expenses mainly reflect the growth of the business.
Income tax expense increased $238,000 for the first quarter of 2020, compared to the same periods in 2019. The effective tax rates for first quarter 2020 was 25.7%, compared to 24.4% for the same period in 2019.

CEO outlook and commentary
Vito S. Pantilione, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parke Bancorp and Parke Bank, provided the following statement:
I want to first express my hope that you and your families are safe and healthy in these very challenging times. The COVID-19 crisis has changed the world, the way we live and the way we do business. Although this virus is unprecedented, it is not the first time this country faced a life changing crisis. History has taught us that our country can fight through tough times, return to a normal life with a growing economy and this COVID-19 will be no different. We will get through it.
The Company enjoyed strong growth in the 1st quarter of 2020, growth in total assets, loans and deposits. Our net income increased from the 1st quarter of 2019 to the 1st quarter of 2020, although it was affected by the increase in our loan loss provision due to our concern about the COVID-19 impact on the economy. We made a loan loss provision of $1,400,000 for the first quarter bringing our allowance for loan losses to 1.58%. I'm afraid the economy will get worse before it gets better, but we believe it will get better. The Company is well structured with strong capital to be in a good position to continue growing our Company and Parke bank, including our earnings and shareholders equity once this crisis is over. Be safe.
