Oconee Financial Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

November 3, 2021 GMT

WATKINSVILLE, Ga., Nov. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Oconee Financial Corporation (“Oconee”) (OTCQX: OSBK) is pleased to report results for the third quarter of 2021. Unaudited net income for the three months ending September 30, 2021, was $654,692 or $0.73 per common share. This compares to $516,482 or $0.58 per common share for the third quarter of the prior year, an increase of 26.8%. . The increase in net earnings for the third quarter was mainly attributable to an increase in net interest income of $110,000. While interest income on loans decreased $202,000 due to lower loan yields during 2021, interest income on investments increased $249,000 due to the investment of excess funds into available-for-sale investment securities. In addition, interest expense on deposits and borrowings decreased $63,000, primarily due to lower rates on deposits.

Unaudited net income YTD as of September 30, 2021 was $2,291,330 or $2.56 per common share. This compares to $1,555,194 or $1.73 per common share for YTD as of September 30 of the prior year. This represents an increase of 47.3% in net earnings YTD September 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020. The increase in earnings over the previous year was primarily attributable to increases in net interest income from Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) fees recognized of $964,000 and increases in mortgage banking income of $412,000.

Total assets as of September 30, 2021, were $532.2 million, compared to total assets of $494.5 million as of December 31, 2020. Total loans were $297.7 million and deposits were $481.2 million as of September 30, 2021. This compared to total loans of $319.6 million and deposits of $444.7 million at December 31, 2020. As of September 30, 2021, total loans decreased 6.9% and total deposits increased 8.2% versus December 31, 2020. Book value per share at September 30, 2021 was $43.88.

Neil Stevens, President and Chief Executive Officer of Oconee, commenting on the third quarter’s results noted, “we’re pleased with our growth in earnings for the quarter and for the year to date. While loans decreased over the prior year, this was primarily due to a $39 million decrease in PPP loans versus the year ago level. We saw very strong loan demand in the third quarter and strong loan demand continues into the fourth quarter. This growth reflects the vibrancy of our markets and the quality of our lending team.”
