Financial Highlights for the fourth quarter of 2019:

At December 31, 2019, the Bank’s loan portfolio totaled $73.8 million, an increase of $27.4 million, or 58.9% from the end of the third quarter of 2019 and by $59.9 million, or 430.5% compared to December 31, 2018.

Deposits

On a year-over-year basis the Bank more than doubled its total deposits compared to December 31, 2018. The growth in deposit relationships was accomplished while maintaining the cost of funds at 59 basis points for the year ended December 31, 2019. Noninterest-bearing demand deposits increased by $8.4 million, or 23.9% compared to the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

As of December 31, 2019, total deposits increased by $7.1 million, or 8.7% compared to September 30, 2019 and by $46.1 million or 107.6% compared to December 31, 2018.

Net-interest income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 was $3.2 million compared to $897 thousand for the comparable period ending December 31, 2018 an increase of $2.3 million or 262.9%. The Bank’s primary source of revenue was driven by interest income from loans and investment securities.

The increase in non-interest income was primarily driven by gains on sale of investment securities in the amount of $203 thousand as the Bank took advantage of changes in interest rates to re-align the composition of its investment securities portfolio.

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Bank’s total non-interest expense increased by $126 thousand, or 10.9% versus the third quarter ended September 30, 2019. Non-interest expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 totaled $4.8 million versus $3.9 million, an increase of $904 thousand or 23.4%, compared to the comparable period ended December 31, 2018. The increase in non-interest expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 was primarily a result of additional staff as the Bank continued to grow.

Net Income

The Bank’s net loss for the fourth quarter of 2019 totaled $407 thousand ($0.12 per share) versus a net loss of $298 thousand ($0.09 per share), or an increase of $109 thousand or 36.6% from the third quarter of 2019.
