Net income available to common shareholders increased during the fourth quarter by 13.64% as compared to the same period last year. Net income available to common shareholders for 2012 was $6.9 million, a 14.76% increase from $6.0 million in 2011. James Rickard, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Earnings per share increased 14.76% over the prior year. We achieved this increased operating performance by stabilizing our net interest margin, finding ways to supplement certain declining sources of non-interest income, and prudently managing our controllable expenses. This was accomplished while continuing to invest in our people, our information systems, and the future of our Company. We believe in our relationship banking model and will continue to look for opportunities to drive more value for our team members, customers, and shareholders." "The economic environment remains challenging for our industry, and sustained low interest rates will continue to put pressure on our net interest margin. The most effective way to sustain our margin is by putting cash inflows from our investment and loan portfolios back to work as new commercial loans. We have increased our sales staff this past year with the strategic goal of growing our commercial loan portfolio in a profitable and responsible manner. Business banking in our market area is competitive, but there is also substantial opportunity." "We continue to focus on reducing our non-performing assets," Rickard continued. "We have not only been impacted by the lost interest income typically associated with these assets, we also have experienced higher than normal expenses involved in managing and resolving problem credit relationships. As credit quality improves, expenses related to the credit administration function will decline. We recognized some progress in this area during the fourth quarter, with non-performing assets as a percentage of total assets declining to 1.84% from 3.27% at the end of September. We will concentrate on reducing that number even further during 2013. Our team is focused on the year ahead and we look forward to the opportunity that comes with a new year."
