1st Colonial Bancorp Reports Year to Date Profit of $1,039,000 and a Quarterly Profit of $417,000

COLLINGSWOOD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 1st Colonial Bancorp, Inc. (OTCBB:FCOB), holding company of 1st Colonial National Bank, today reported that its net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $1,039,000 ($0.33 per share), compared to $573,000 ($0.18 per share) for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Gerry Banmiller, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Current languid economic climate dictates a measured growth plan. We continue to follow this conservative philosophy yet have, as you've just read, dramatically increased our profits from September 30, 2011 to September 30, 2012."


At September 30, 2012, 1st Colonial also reported $280.9 million in total assets, $247.1 million in deposits and $183.9 million in loans. These amounts reflect a decrease in total assets of $559,000, but increases of $1.4 million in deposits and $7.0 million in loans, from September 30, 2011. Loans available for sale accounted for $4.8 million of the $7.0 million increase in loans. The decrease in assets was a result of decreases in cash and due from banks of $10.5 million, most of which was redeployed into loans and investments. Investments increased by $3.0 million. The increase of $1.4 million in deposits was offset by a decrease in other borrowing of $3.4 million.

Net interest income of $7,015,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $347,000, or 5.2%, higher than the net interest income of $6,668,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. This was due primarily to an increase of 0.17% in net interest spread to 3.44% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to 3.27% for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

1st Colonial's provision for loan losses was $1,375,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to a provision for loan losses of $1,525,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Non-interest income of $1,806,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $626,000, or 53.1%, higher than non-interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Fees generated by the origination and sale of residential mortgage loans and SBA loans increased by $454,000 and $144,000 respectively. Gains on investment securities sold were $30,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and there was no gain or loss from the sale of investments during the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Non-interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 increased $328,000 or 5.8% from the comparable period in 2011. Losses on real estate owned accounted for $176,000 of the increase. Salaries and benefits increased by $149,000 and legal collection expenses increased by $69,000. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in FDIC Assessments of $36,000.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, 1st Colonial had income tax expenses of $379,000 compared to income tax expenses of $50,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 representing an increase of $329,000.

The Company also reported that its net income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $417,000, an increase of $189,000 from the comparable period ended September 30, 2011. Additionally, diluted earnings per share increased to $0.13 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 from $0.07 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Net interest income of $2,291,000 was relatively unchanged from the prior year's comparable period of $2,287,000, non-interest income increased by $424,000 primarily from fees generated by the origination and sale of residential mortgage loans and SBA loans. Non-interest expense increased by $193,000 due to increased commission expenses related to loan volume in our residential lending department and the addition of a full time Compliance Officer. In addition, our provision for loan losses decreased by $100,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 from the quarter ended September 30, 2011.
