Fourth quarter net income available to common stockholders was $995,000 or $.56 per diluted share in 2012 compared to $770,000 or $.43 per diluted share for the same period in 2011. Net income for the full year 2012 was $1,548,000 compared to $1,534,000 for the full year 2011.

The quarterly and annual results for both 2012 and 2011 were positively impacted by partial reversals of the Company’s valuation allowance on deferred tax assets which resulted in tax benefits of $640,000 or $.36 per share for 2012, and $480,000 or $.27 per share for 2011.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, net interest income increased to $7,237,000 from $6,364,000 for 2011 as a result of loan portfolio growth and a lower cost of funds. The provision for loan losses was $373,000 for the quarter and $1,077,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012. In 2011, the Company’s provision totaled $35,000 and $397,000 for the fourth quarter and year respectively. The increase in the provision for loan losses reflects increased loan growth in 2012 over 2011. Loans increased $29.8 million in 2012 compared to $10.7 million in 2011. The increased provisions for 2012 also reflect increased charge-offs for 2012 over 2011. Charge-offs for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $564,000 compared to charge-offs of $73,000 in 2011.
