Income Statement Review
Patriot’s third quarter net interest income was $4.2 million, compared to $4.9 million in the third quarter a year ago. Interest income decreased 13.4% compared to the third quarter a year ago as a result of the lower interest rate environment’s impact on loans that re-priced, loan payoffs, and the overall loan mix. Interest expense decreased 10.7% compared to the third quarter a year ago due to the reduction in interest bearing deposits and the increase in non-interest bearing deposits. In the first nine months of 2012, net interest income was $19.5 million compared to $21.4 million in the first nine months of 2011. The decline compared to the first nine months of the prior year was due to the overall lower rate environment and the change in the balance sheet mix.
The lower interest rate environment held Patriot’s net interest margin flat during the third quarter. The net interest margin in the third quarter of 2012 was 2.86%, compared to 2.81% in the second quarter of 2012 and 3.40% in the third quarter a year ago.
