German American Bancorp, Inc. Reports Record 2012 Earnings & Announces Increase In Quarterly Cash Dividend

The provision for loan loss totaled $2,412,000 during the year ended December 31, 2012 representing a decline of $4,388,000 or 65% from the year ended December 31, 2011. During 2012, the provision for loan loss represented approximately 21 basis points of average loans while net charge-offs represented approximately 19 basis points of average loans. The significant decline in the Company's provision for loan loss during 2012 compared with 2011 was largely attributable to a lower level of net charge-offs and overall improvement in the level of adversely classified and non-performing loans.

During the year ended December 31, 2012, non-interest income increased approximately 1% from the year ended December 31, 2011.

Total Non-interest Income  $ 21,811  $ 21,576

Trust and investment product fees increased $512,000 or 24% during 2012 compared with 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to increased trust revenues supplemented by increased retail brokerage revenues. Insurance revenues decreased approximately $295,000 or 5% during 2012 as compared to 2011 as a result of lower contingency revenue. Contingency revenue totaled $88,000 during 2012 compared to $872,000 in 2011. The decline in contingency revenue was partially offset by an increased level of commercial insurance revenues during 2012 compared with 2011.
