DNB Financial Corporation Reports Strong Earnings, Book Value And Asset Growth For 2012

Non-performing assets (NPAs) declined to $11.67 million at December 31, 2012 from $13.69 million at September 30, 2012 and were flat compared to December 31, 2011. The decline in NPAs relative to September 30, 2012 was due primarily to the sale of one OREO property for $2.6 million in December of 2012. Included in non-performing assets at December 31, 2012 was $1.24 million in other real estate owned and other repossessed property and $10.43 million in non-performing loans.

"We were able to sell our largest OREO property during the fourth quarter of 2012 and will continue to work diligently to control the level of non-performing assets in 2013," stated William J. Hieb, President and Chief Risk & Credit Officer.

The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans was 2.63% at December 31, 2012 up from 2.45% and 1.89% at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. The increase in the ratio is due in part to the decline in net loan balances combined with the addition of two commercial credits totaling $3.2 million.

Latoff concluded: "In many ways, 2012 was a marquee year in achieving some of our key strategic and growth initiatives. We generated record profits, grew total assets and core deposits, and continued to invest in infrastructure and key business lines such as Wealth Management and Retail banking. We acquired a branch in Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, increasing our footprint in Delaware County and increased our dividend to common shareholders. We continued our tradition of giving back to our communities through charitable contributions, scholarships, educational programs, and sponsorships of local events. We've continued to follow the same guiding principles that have served us well in both challenging and prosperous economic times: sound underwriting and prudent decision making."
