LNB Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNBB) (“LNB” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and the full year ended December 31, 2012. For the fourth quarter 2012, net income was $1.64 million compared to $1.49 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income available to common shareholders was $1.32 million, or $0.17 per common share, compared to $1.17 million, or $0.15 per common share, for the year-ago quarter.

“We are pleased to report another year of improved operating performance,” stated Daniel E. Klimas, president and chief executive officer of LNB Bancorp. “We continue to make progress on improving credit quality. Non-performing assets declined $5.1 million in the fourth quarter and nearly $7 million in 2012 compared to 2011. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets at December 31, 2012, is 2.48%, down from 3.09% at the end of 2011.”

“Loans grew by 4.7% in 2012. We continue to see growth in commercial lending; recently the Small Business Administration (SBA) recognized the Company as the 4 th highest SBA lender in the Cleveland metropolitan area, based on 2012 loan totals. Residential mortgage loan volume showed strong growth in 2012, with originations up 97% over 2011. The Company opened new loan offices in Solon and Hudson, expanding our sales efforts beyond Lorain County. We expect mortgage revenue to continue to grow in 2013 assuming the housing market continues to improve.”

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $6.11 million, compared with net income of $5.0 million for 2011. Net income available to common shareholders for 2012 was $4.84 million, or $0.61 per common share, compared to $3.73 million for 2011, or $0.47 per common share.

Fourth Quarter Review

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.64 million, up by $113,000, or 7.4%, from the third quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of a lower loan loss provision expense and net gains from sale of mortgage loans.
