Severn Bancorp, Inc. Announces a 38% Increase in First Quarter Earnings

ANNAPOLIS, Md., May 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Severn Bancorp, Inc., (SVBI) parent company of Severn Bank, today announced net income of $2.6 million for the three months ending March 31, 2019 versus $1.9 million for the same quarter in 2018, which is a 38% increase in earnings. On a diluted per share basis, earnings were $0.20 versus $0.15 for the quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

"Earnings look great for this quarter again," stated Alan J. Hyatt, President and Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. Hyatt continued, "We are pleased with the upward trend in earnings. We have launched an exciting new retail deposit product offering, Kasasa rewards checking and are having success building on relationships with local businesses and business owners. Our community continues to see us as a partner in their success and calls on us for all of their banking needs."

Net interest income increased 16% during the first quarter of 2019. Net interest income was $8.1 million during the first quarter of 2019 versus $7.0 million during the first quarter of 2018.

Noninterest income increased 26% during the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Noninterest income was $2.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, up from $1.8 million as of March 31, 2018. Growth in mortgage banking revenue, real estate commissions, and deposit fees contributed to the increase.

Noninterest expenses were $6.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 versus $6.1 million for the same period in 2018. The increase is due to several factors, including: higher occupancy costs as a result of the addition of a Wayson's Corner Branch in the second quarter of 2018; additional staffing due to the added Wayson's Corner Branch and the addition of a Frederick mortgage production office in the second quarter of 2018; along with higher commissions paid to mortgage loan officers and real estate brokers as a result of increased production in 2019.

Asset quality remains strong with total non-accrual loans to total loans at 0.6% compared to 0.7% as of December 31, 2018. Total non-performing assets to total assets held steady at 0.6% as of March 31, 2019 compared to 0.6% as of December 31, 2018.
