FFD Financial Corporation Reports Net Earnings For The Quarter And Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2010
DOVER, Ohio, Aug. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FFD Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:FFDF), parent company of First Federal Community Bank, Dover, Ohio, reported net earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2010, of $356,000, or diluted earnings per share of $.35, compared to the $322,000, or $.32, per diluted share, reported for the comparable three-month period in 2009. The $34,000, or 10.6%, increase in net earnings resulted from increases of $283,000, or 18.6%, in net interest income and $4,000, or 1.3%, in other income, which were partially offset by increases of $163,000, or 223.3%, in the provision for losses on loans, $71,000, or 5.6%, in general, administrative and other expenses and $19,000, or 11.4%, in the provision for federal income taxes.
Net earnings for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010, decreased $98,000, or 9.3%, to $959,000, or diluted earnings per share of $.95, compared to the $1.1 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, reported in the fiscal year ended June, 30 2009. The decrease in net earnings resulted from increases of $533,000, or 10.8%, in general, administrative and other expenses and $104,000, or 23.4%, in the provision for losses on loans, which were partially offset by increases of $357,000, or 5.7%, in net interest income and $125,000, or 16.9%, in other income, and a decrease of $57,000, or 10.1%, in the provision for federal income taxes.
The increase in net interest income for the fiscal year was primarily due to the costs of new and repricing deposits declining faster than the yields on interest earning assets. Borrowing costs decreased period to period due to decreases in the average balance outstanding, which was partially offset by an increase in the average cost of borrowings. The decrease in the average balance period to period was due to the use of excess liquidity to repay certain Federal Home Loan Bank advances and borrowings under a credit line with another financial institution.
