Stocks in this article: FSBW

Noninterest income increased $2.1 million, or 268.8%, to $2.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, from $770,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2011.  The increase during the period was primarily due to $2.1 million in gains associated with the sale of mortgage loans to the secondary market as part of the home lending initiative. Noninterest income increased $3.7 million, or 149.1%, to $6.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, from $2.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Noninterest expense increased $1.7 million, or 52.7%, to $4.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, from $3.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011. Changes in noninterest expense included a $1.3 million, or 88.3%, increase in salaries and benefit costs associated with the addition of more lending staff, a $268,000 or 53.5% increase in operation costs partially due to a $108,000 increase in off-balance sheet reserves including a reserve for the marine loan sale, a $215,000, or 210.8% increase in loan costs associated with increased lending activities, partially offset by a $151,000 decrease in write-downs to fair value of other real estate owned.
