“We were encouraged by the positive signs in the second quarter including the positive earnings, increasing net interest margin, increasing non-interest income and decreasing non-interest expense.  The stabilization in the loan portfolio balances and credit metrics was another positive sign in the quarter,” said David W. Heeter, President and CEO.

Balance Sheet

Assets increased $23.0 million as of June 30, 2011 compared to December 31, 2010, primarily due to the increase in investments securities by $59.3 million which were partially offset by decreases in gross loans held for investment and sale of $39.7 million.  The increase in investment securities was in shorter term government agency mortgage backed securities and was primarily funded by proceeds from loan payments and increased deposits.  In the second quarter of 2011, gross loans held for investment and sale stabilized decreasing $474,000 compared to a decrease of $39.2 million in the first quarter of 2011.  Heeter commented, “The stabilization in our loan portfolio was a favorable indicator that loan production has improved compared to the first quarter of this year.”

Deposits increased by $40.0 million as the Bank has seen increased activity in all of its markets for core deposit relationships in the first half of 2011.  The increase in deposits has been primarily in core transactional accounts which increased $46.7 million while certificates of deposit decreased $6.7 million in the first half of 2011. Core transactional deposits increased to 43% of the Bank’s total deposits as of June 30, 2011 compared to 40% as of December 31, 2010. The increase in deposits allowed the Bank to retire higher rate maturing debt, mainly FHLB advances, of $21.9 million in the first half of 2011.

Allowance for loan losses decreased by $415,000, to $16.0 million as of June 30, 2011 compared to December 31, 2010, but increased $160,000 in the second quarter of 2011.  Net charge offs in the second quarter were $1.5 million, or .64% of total loans on an annualized basis, compared to $4.8 million, or 1.94% of total loans on an annualized basis in the first quarter of 2011. The allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans as of June 30, 2011 was 52.98% compared to 52.97% as of March 31, 2011 and 42.16% as of December 31, 2011.  The allowance for loan losses to total loans as of June 30, 2011 was 1.65%, an increase from 1.64% as of March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2011.  Heeter commented, “We believe that our allowance for loan losses adequately reflects the risk in our portfolio and the current risk in the economy as we move forward.”

Stockholders’ equity was $136.0 million at June 30, 2011, an increase of $4.9 from December 31, 2010. The increase was due primarily to unrealized gains on securities of $5.4 million and net income of $987,000. This increase was partially offset by dividend payments of $838,000 to common shareholders and $810,000 to preferred shareholders.  The Company’s tangible book value per share as of June 30, 2011 increased to $14.27 compared to $13.49 as of December 31, 2010 and tangible common equity ratio was 7.19% as of June 30, 2011 compared to 6.93% as of December 31, 2010.  The Bank’s risk-based capital ratio was well in excess of “well-capitalized” levels as defined by all regulatory standards as of June 30, 2011.

Income Statement

Net interest income before the provision for loan losses decreased $324,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.  The decrease was a result of the decline in the net interest margin from 3.23% in the second quarter of 2010 to 3.19% in the second quarter of 2011 and a decline in average earning assets of $22.9 million. On a linked quarter basis, net interest income before the provision for loan losses increased $239,000 as net interest margin increased by 5 basis points and average earning assets increased by $9.6 million. 

Net interest income before the provision for loan losses decreased $497,000 for the first half of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.  The decrease was a result of the decline in the net interest margin from 3.20% in the first half of 2010 to 3.16% in the first half of 2011 and the decline in average earning assets of $13.5 million.

The provision for loan losses for the second quarter of 2011 increased to $1.7 million compared to $1.5 million during last year’s comparable period.  The increase was attributable to increased non-performing loans and non-performing assets when compared to June 30, 2010.  Non-performing loans to total loans at June 30, 2011 was 3.12% compared to 2.49% at June 30, 2010.  Non-performing assets to total assets were 2.67% at June 30, 2011 compared to 2.31% at June 30, 2010.  Net charge offs for the second quarter of 2011 were $1.5 million, or .64% of loans on an annualized basis compared to $1.9 million, or .74% of loans on an annualized basis in the second quarter of 2010.

The provision for loan losses for the first half of 2011 increased to $5.9 million compared to $3.1 million during last year’s comparable period.  The increase was primarily due to net charge offs of $4.8 million in the first quarter of 2011.  The charge offs were for previously identified problem loans that were mostly collateralized by real estate.  Non-performing loans to total loans at June 30, 2011 were 3.12% compared to 3.90% at December 31, 2010.  This decrease in non-performing loans was in all segments of our portfolio.  Non-performing assets to total assets were 2.67% at June 30, 2011 compared to 3.20% at December 31, 2010.

Non-interest income for the second quarter of 2011 was $3.4 million a decrease of $19,000 compared to the second quarter of 2010.  Regulatory changes on overdrafts in July of 2010 resulted in the Company’s reduced service charges on deposit accounts by $161,000 in the second quarter of 2011 compared to the second quarter of 2010.  Gain on loan sales increased $140,000 primarily due to a recovery of $205,000 on previously written down mortgage servicing rights.  On a linked quarter basis, non-interest income increased $453,000, primarily in service charges on deposit accounts of $122,000 and the above mentioned increase in gain on loan sales.

Non-interest income for the first half of 2011 was $6.3 million, a decrease of $238,000 compared to the first half of 2010.  Service charges on deposit accounts decreased primarily due to regulatory changes by $296,000, gain on sale of investments decreased by $245,000 primarily due to fewer sales of investment securities and gain on loan sales decreased by $123,000 primarily due to decreased loan production.  These decreases were offset by the stabilization of values for trust preferred securities which resulted in a $535,000 decrease in other than temporary impairment.

Non-interest expense decreased $422,000 when comparing the second quarter of 2011 with that of 2010.  Repossessed asset expenses decreased by $246,000, FDIC expense related to deposit insurance decreased $121,000 due to the new FDIC fee structure, and software maintenance expense decreased $90,000 in the second quarter of 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.  These decreases were partially offset by increased professional fees of $133,000.

A new wi-fi security risk that may affect you

If you’re like most Americans, you probably access the internet most of the time from your home’s wireless network. While this is a nice convenience, having a router (the device that sends out the wi-fi connection signal) opens up some security vulnerabilities that you need to proactively protect against.

Whether your internet service provider gives you a router to use or if you have your own, from time to time there can be different types of router-based vulnerabilities that emerge, potentially putting your browsing privacy and information at risk.


A New Router Vulnerability: The Misfortune Cookie


 A new vulnerability has been discovered that affects a least 12 million home or small office routers called the Misfortune Cookie (CVE-2014-9222). This vulnerability can be exploited to give an intruder remote access to a home router and can be used to attack different devices that are connected to that router.

If the attacker can exploit this Misfortune Cookie Vulnerability on your router, the attacker will now be in the middle between you and the internet. The attacker could see all information flowing in and out of that router. This could enable them to capture usernames/passwords, sensitive banking information, and many other types of highly sensitive information flowing though the router.

 


What can you do about it?


1. Check to see if your router model is on the vulnerability list:

2. Check with the maker of your router to see if they’ve released an update that fixes the Misfortune Cookie Vulnerability.

3. Enable a firewall
A firewall is a software program or piece of hardware that helps screen out hackers, viruses that try to reach your computer over the Internet. Most operating systems that come with a PC or an Apple computer have firewall capabilities. Learn more here (http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/firewalls-whatis.aspx)

4. Make sure there is an “https://” at the beginning of your browser’s address bar when visiting a site.
This simply indicates that the site you are browsing has extra security protocols in place to protect your information shared on the site. This is especially important on sites where provide sensitive information (like your financial institution’s website or an online store).

5. Update all of your software regularly and use an antivirus program
Software programs also have potential to create security risks if they are not updated on a regular basis. Whenever there is an update for software you have, it’s always a best practice to install the update. The same goes for your antivirus software. Always make sure it’s up to date and running on your machine / device.
