United Bancshares, Inc.
Quarterly Report
September 30, 2023

 

A Letter to Our Shareholders, Clients, and Team Members: 

Despite a difficult operating environment, your Company is reporting pre-tax income of approximately $6.7 million and 14.78% return on average tangible shareholders' equity for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, with strong liquidity and asset quality metrics. Earnings for the quarter were suppressed by continued significant headwinds for our residential mortgage lending team and increased costs due to inflationary pressures, however, the bank has offset some of those headwinds by reducing non-interest expenses by $1.7 million as compared to the first nine months of 2022.

I am also pleased to report that after a review of your Company's earnings, capital position, risk profile and strategic plan, your Board of Directors declared a $0.22 per share cash dividend for shareholders of record on November 30, 2023, payable on December 15, 2023. The dividend is approximately 34% of the reported net income for the third quarter of 2023.

Your Company's share price continues to be negatively impacted by the markets overall view of the financial industry with low price to earnings and price to tangible book trading across the industry. As a result of conservative loan pricing strategies over the past 12 months and restrained loan growth, management believes that the bank is well positioned to grow in the current, higher interest rate environment with strong liquidity and credit metrics.

While we expect the headwinds to continue to have a negative impact on our industry's earnings throughout 2023 and into 2024, we believe that continued efforts on cost controls and new/upward repricing of loans through this cycle will offset some of that earnings pressure. The efforts of the team and our strong corporate values of respect for, and accountability to, our shareholders, clients, colleagues, and communities are the foundation for the continued success of your Company. Thank you for your ongoing support and the trust you have placed in us.

Respectfully,

Brian D. Young
President & CEO
