AUBURN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Community 1st Bank (OTCBB: CFBN), with $203.0 million in total assets, today reported net income of $173 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and net income of $587 thousand for the six month period ended June 30, 2013.

Robert C. Haydon commented, "The continued positive results of the quarter and six month period ended June 30, 2013 validates the strategies and direction of our Bank. The Bank is focused on improving profitability and gaining market share, both accomplished by exceeding the expectations of our clients and marketplace."


Total assets at June 30, 2013 were $203.0 million, an increase of $15.4 million, or 8.2%, from June 30, 2012. Community 1st Bank (the "Bank") was successful in growing loans from $80.3 million at June 30, 2012 to $97.2 million at June 30, 2013, an increase of $16.9 million, or 21.0%, enhancing the earning asset mix to higher yielding loans. The Bank also increased non-interest bearing deposits from $33.9 million at June 30, 2012 to $45.6 million at June 30, 2013, an increase of $11.7 million, or 34.6%, enhancing the deposit portfolio mix and improving the Bank's cost of funds. Total deposits increased from $153.6 million at June 30, 2012 to $176.3 million at June 30, 2013, an increase of $22.7 million, or 14.8%. When compared to the previous quarter, total assets increased $9.0 million, or 4.6%, from $194.0 million at March 31, 2013. Loans increased by $5.5 million, or 6.0%, from $91.7 million at March 31, 2013. Total deposits increased by $12.2 million, or 7.4%, from $164.1 million at March 31, 2013.

Operating Results - Quarter

The Bank reported net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 of $173 thousand, which included $100 thousand in provision for loan losses and $120 thousand in gains on sales of securities. This compares to net income of $174 thousand for the same period in 2012, which included $220 thousand in provision for loan losses and $161 thousand in gains on sales of securities. Net income decreased slightly by $1 thousand, while the provision for loan losses decreased by $120 thousand and gains on sales of securities decreased by $41 thousand as compared to the second quarter of 2012. The provisioning during the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was primarily a result of the loan growth experienced during the quarter.

Interest income increased by $46 thousand, or 2.8%, to total $1.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, primarily driven by a change in the mix of our average earning assets to a greater percentage of higher yielding loans. Interest expense decreased by $47 thousand, or 19.5%, to total $194 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, driven by a decrease in average rates paid on interest bearing deposits outweighing the increase in average balances of interest bearing deposits. Net interest income increased by $93 thousand, or 6.6%, for the second quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. Non-interest expense increased by $165 thousand, or 12.8%, to total $1.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily driven by the addition of two business production officers to achieve the Bank's growth initiatives and expand market share.

Operating Results - Year

The Bank reported net income for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 of $587 thousand, which includes $210 thousand in provision for loan losses and gains on sales of securities of $453 thousand.

Net income increased by $304 thousand, while the provision for loan losses decreased by $250 thousand and gains on sales of securities increased by $72 thousand as compared to the six month period ended June 30, 2012.

Interest income increased by $132 thousand, or 4.0%, to total $3.4 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 driven by the increase in average loans. Interest expense decreased by $54 thousand, or 11.0%, to total $438 thousand for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. Net interest income increased by $186 thousand, or 6.7%, for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. Non-interest expense increased by $205 thousand, or 7.8%, to total $2.8 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 driven by the addition of production officers and expenses to support the Bank's growth initiatives.
