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

Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (OTCPink Marketplace: FCBI), the parent company for Frederick County Bank ("FCB"), announced today that, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company recorded net income of $149 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.10, as compared to net income of $891 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.57 recorded for the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company earned $1.3 million with diluted earnings per share of $0.82 for the year ended on December 31, 2016, as compared to $2.1 million in earnings and diluted earnings per share of $1.36 for the same period in 2015.

The decrease in quarterly earnings was due primarily to $600 thousand in provision for loan losses in the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared to a negative provision expense of $(178) thousand in the same period of 2015, a decrease in total noninterest income to $420 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2016 from $756 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2015 and an increase in total noninterest expense to $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 from $2.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase in the provision for loan losses was primarily related to two commercial loan relationships. The decrease in total noninterest income was due primarily to decreases in gain on sale of loans of $206 thousand and in gain on foreclosed properties of $97 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2016 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase in total noninterest expense was due primarily to increases in salaries and employee benefits of $160 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2016 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, respectively.

For the full year of 2016, the decrease in total earnings was due primarily to an increase in provision for loan losses to $850 thousand in as compared to a negative provision for loan loss expense of $(178) thousand in the same period of 2015, a decrease in total noninterest income to $1.3 million in 2016 as compared to $1.9 million in 2015 and an increase in total noninterest expense of $11.0 million in the full year of 2016 as compared to $10.6 million in the same period in 2015. The increase in the provision for loan losses was primarily related to two commercial loan relationships. The decrease in total noninterest income in 2016 was due primarily to decreases in securities gains of $47 thousand, in gain on sale of loans of $477 thousand, reflecting lower SBA loan originations and subsequent sales in 2016, and in gain on foreclosed properties of $97 thousand. The increase in total noninterest expense in the full year of 2016 was due primarily to increases in salaries and employee benefits of $415 thousand as compared to 2015.

The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans stood at 1.22% and 1.10% as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Total nonperforming assets stood at $7.4 million and $5.9 million at December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The corresponding nonperforming assets to total assets ratios were 1.96% and 1.68% as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

The Company also reported that, as of December 31, 2016, assets stood at $378.8 million, with total deposits of $322.0 million and gross loans of $306.2 million, representing increases of 8.1%, 8.9%, and 9.8%, respectively, compared to December 31, 2015. Total shareholders' equity at December 31, 2016 was $31.2 million, an increase of $1.6 million from December 31, 2015. The increase primarily resulted from an increase in additional paid-in capital of $220 thousand, which was from the exercise of stock options, an increase in retained earnings of $840 thousand and an increase in accumulated other comprehensive income of $545 thousand from December 31, 2015. On a per share basis, book value increased by 86 cents for 2016 to $20.89 per share at December 31, 2016 from $20.03 per share at December 31, 2015. The dividends declared per share remained constant at $0.28 per share for the 12 month periods ended December 31, 2016 and 2015.
