FedFirst Financial Corporation Announces Record Year-to-Date 2012 Results

The provision for loan losses was $310,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $850,000 for the year ended December 31, 2011. In the prior period, adjustments to the qualitative factors used in determining the allowance for loan losses contributed to the larger provision amount. Net charge-offs were $522,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $576,000 for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Noninterest income increased $140,000, or 4.2%, to $3.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $3.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. In the current period, there was a $341,000 increase in insurance commissions and a financed real estate owned property was paid off which resulted in the recognition of $66,000 of income that had previously been deferred. In addition, the death of a former director in the current period resulted in the recognition of $33,000 in income from a bank-owned life insurance policy and fees and service charge income increased $22,000 primarily due to changes in the Bank’s fee structure and related customer activity. This was partially offset by the recognition of a $304,000 gain on the sale of available-for-sale securities in the prior period.

Noninterest expense decreased $1.9 million, or 15.7%, to $9.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $11.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Compensation expense decreased $1.5 million primarily due to the termination of the Company’s supplemental executive retirement plan in the prior period and a decrease in stock-based compensation expense due to the final vesting of restricted stock awards and options. Occupancy expense decreased $285,000 as a result of fully depreciated assets and a decrease in rent due to a branch consolidation in the prior year. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s insurance premiums decreased $45,000 due to the revised assessment methodology implemented in the second quarter of 2011. Other miscellaneous expense decreased $18,000 primarily due to a decrease in real estate owned expenses partially offset by an increase in advertising expenses.
