First Northern Community Bancorp – 1st Quarter Earnings Report

First Northern Community Bancorp (the “Company”, ticker symbol FNRN), holding company for First Northern Bank (“First Northern” or the “Bank”), today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2010. Owen “John” Onsum, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The Company reported year-to-date net income as of March 31, 2010 of $361,000 or $0.01 per diluted common share, compared to net income of $453,000, or $0.04 per diluted common share earned in the same fiscal period last year.”

Total assets at March 31, 2010 were $747.5 million, an increase of $59.1 million, or 8.59% compared to the same period in 2009. Total deposits of $650.9 million increased $62.1 million or 10.55% compared to March 31, 2009 figures. During that same period, total net loans (including loans held-for-sale) decreased $33.5 million, or 6.90%, to $452.2 million.

Commenting on the first quarter of 2010, Onsum said, “We entered 2010 with momentum on our side. While we’re not elated by our positive net income figure, we are very thankful that it appears progress is being made. Loan workouts continue to absorb large amounts of the Company’s monetary and human resources, yet delinquencies have begun to show improvement. Our ongoing Company-wide expense reduction initiative has kicked into high gear, enabling us to save approximately $800,000 in Other Operating Expense during the first three months of 2010 (compared to the first quarter of 2009). Even though First Northern’s total loans have been reduced through charge-offs, write-downs, and lack of demand, we continue to do our part to keep the economy moving forward; during the first quarter, we originated over $55 million in new loans to credit-worthy borrowers. First Northern Community Bancorp, at 16.0% risk-based capital ratio, continues to remain well in excess of the regulatory levels established for being ‘well capitalized’.”
