Community Business Bank Reports June 30, 2016 Quarter-End Results
Community Business Bank (OTCBB: CBBC) today reported net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, of $870,000 or $0.34 per diluted share, compared with net income in the second quarter of 2015 of $526,000, or $0.24 per diluted share. YTD net income at June 30, 2016, was $1.5 million or $0.60 per diluted share, compared to $1.0 million at June 30, 2015, or $0.45 per diluted share. The Bank also retired 100% of its outstanding preferred stock at a 10% discount during the second quarter. This nonrecurring event favorably impacted the Bank's earnings available to common stock shareholders by $0.17 per share. This increased the second quarter 2016 QTD earnings to $0.51 per diluted share and the June 30, 2016, YTD earnings to $0.77 per diluted share.
Net interest income increased to $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared with $2.2 million in the second quarter of the prior year. This increase was due primarily to higher volume in loans and securities as of June 30, 2016, than in the prior year. Total loans were $194.6 million and $160.1 million as of June 30, 2016, and 2015, respectively, representing an increase of $34.4 million, or 22%. Investment totals reflected an increase of $3.7 million, or 7%, ending the second quarter of 2016 at $59.8 million as compared to $56.1 million as of June 30, 2015.
The Bank realized an increase in deposits of $30.5 million, or 16%, as of June 30, 2016, compared with June 30, 2015. This deposit increase was primarily in time deposits, up $19.4 million or 63%; DDA deposits, up $13.7 million or 20%; and wholesale deposits, up $6.3 million or 19%, as of June 30, 2016, as compared to June 30, 2015. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in savings and money market deposit totals of $8.9 million or 14%. The decrease in money market totals was due to the loss of one large relationship that was acquired by an east coast organization and was originally scheduled to leave several years ago.
Noninterest income was $255,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, as compared to $77,000 for the similar period in the prior year. The increase of $178,000 was primarily due to higher other noninterest income - gain on loan sales and a partial OREO recovery. Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, was $1.5 million, up $96,000 from June 30, 2015. This was primarily due to an increase of approximately $107,000 in other noninterest expense due to higher professional fees, promotional-related and other operating expenses. The Bank's QTD efficiency ratio is 48% as of June 30, 2016, an improvement from 62% as of June 30, 2015, as the Bank grows its balance sheet.
Total assets as of June 30, 2016, were $259.8 million as compared with $230.8 million as of June 30, 2015, an increase of 13%. The Bank's loan-to-deposit ratio as of June 30, 2016, was 85.6%, up from 81.4% as of June 30, 2015.
The Bank's ALLL was 1.21% as of June 30, 2016, down from 1.32% as of June 30, 2015. This decrease was due to new loan volume and not a result of any loan losses. Due to this increased loan volume, the Bank began recognizing a provision for monthly loan losses in 2016 after suspending this provision for the last several years. Despite this increased loan volume and the reduction in the overall ratio, our calculations indicate that the Bank continues to have an excess (unallocated reserves) in its ALLL as of June 30, 2016. The overall dollars in reserve actually increased from $2.11 million as of June 30, 2015 to $2.35 million as of June 30, 2016 due primarily to the renewed loan loss provisions of $210,000 recorded thus far in 2016. The Bank's total NPAs (nonaccrual loans + OREO) are zero as of June 30, 2016, consistent with the balance as of the same period in 2015. Nonaccrual loans were zero as of June 30, 2016, equal to the balance as of the end of the second quarter of 2015. OREO balance was zero as of June 30, 2016, consistent with the balance as of June 30, 2015.
