Share:
FREDERICK, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC PINK: FCBI), the parent company for Frederick County Bank ("FCB"), announced today that, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded net income of $891 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.57, as compared to net income of $352 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.23 recorded for the same quarter of 2014. The Company earned $2.1 million, with diluted earnings per share of $1.36 for the year ended on December 31, 2015, as compared to $1.7 million in earnings and diluted earnings per share of $1.12 for the same period in 2014.

The increase in quarterly earnings was due primarily to increases in net interest income in the amount of $96 thousand and in total noninterest income in the amount of $438 thousand, and a decrease in total noninterest expense of $157 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. In addition, the Company recorded a negative provision for loan losses in the amount of $178 thousand in 2015, while no provision was taken in 2014. The increase in total noninterest income was due primarily to an increase in gain on sale of loans to $370 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to $83 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2014 and a gain for $131 thousand on the sale of foreclosed properties in the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to a loss of $37 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The increase in year-to-date earnings was due primarily to an increase in net interest income to $11.6 million for the year 2015 as compared to $11.3 million in the same period of 2014, and to an increase in total noninterest income to $1.9 million for the year 2015 as compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 2014. In addition, the Company recorded a negative provision for loan losses in the amount of $178 thousand in 2015, while no provision was taken in 2014. The increase in total noninterest income was due primarily to securities gains of $98 thousand in 2015 as compared to none in 2014, an increase in gain on sale of loans to $729 thousand in 2015 as compared to $285 thousand in 2014, and a gain for $131 thousand on the sale of foreclosed properties in 2015 as compared to a loss of $37 thousand in 2014. These increases were offset by an increase in noninterest expense to $10.6 million in 2015 from $10.0 million in 2014.

The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans stood at 1.10% and 1.28% as of December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Nonperforming assets stood at $5.9 million and $5.6 million at December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The corresponding nonperforming assets to total assets ratios were 1.68% and 1.63% as of December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

The Company also reported that, as of December 31, 2015, assets stood at $350.5 million, with total deposits of $295.6 million and gross loans of $278.9 million, representing increases of 2.2%, 3.7%, and 6.3%, respectively, compared to December 31, 2014.

Frederick County Bank is headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, and conducts full service commercial banking services through five bank centers located in Frederick County, Maryland.
