Stocks in this article: LNBB

LNB Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNBB) (“LNB” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Net income was $1.53 million compared to $1.67 million for the third quarter of 2011, a decline of $147,000 or 8.79%. Net income available to common shareholders was $1.21 million, or $0.15 per common share, compared to $1.35 million, or $0.17 per common share, for the 2011 third quarter. For the first nine months of 2012, net income was $4.46 million, up $954,000 or 27%, from the first nine months of the prior year. Net income available to common shareholders for the first nine months of 2012 was $3.51 million, or $0.44 per common share; this compares to $2.56 million for the 2011 nine-month period, or $0.32 per common share, an increase of $0.12 per share, or 37.5%.

“We are particularly pleased with the continued progress that we are making in credit quality,” noted Daniel E. Klimas, president and chief executive officer of LNB Bancorp, Inc. “Non-performing assets have declined $2.3 million in the quarter and nearly $5 million year over year. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets is 2.84% in the quarter, down from 3.35% a year ago.

“Loans have grown by $42.6 million since year-end 2011. This month, the U.S. Small Business Administration recognized Lorain National Bank for ranking 4 th in the Cleveland metro area in small business SBA loan production over the last twelve months.

“We have participated in the resurgence in the automobile industry through our indirect lending activities, originating auto loans through dealers in Ohio, Indiana, Georgia, North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee. The auto loan portfolio has increased $21 million during the first nine months of 2012.”

Third Quarter Review

Net income for the 2012 third quarter declined by $147,000 from the year-ago quarter but increased $88,000 from the preceding quarter. Improvement in asset quality has more than offset the impact of declining interest rates, resulting in a 27% improvement in net income for the first nine months of 2012 compared to the year-earlier nine months.
