Highlands Bancorp, Inc. Reports Enhanced Results For The Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012

Non-interest income increased by $29,000 for the quarter and $38,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to similar periods of 2011 as a result of increased insufficient fund, loan prepayment penalty, wire transfer, and escrow agent fees, partially offset by lower gains from sales of investment securities. Non-interest expenses declined by $13,000 for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 due to lower rent expense, fixed asset depreciation, audit, consulting, loan, and OREO costs. Non-interest expenses increased by $377,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to 2011 primarily due to higher employee salary and benefit costs resulting from additions made to staff, and from increases in data processing, board of directors fees, and OREO costs.

Total assets at Highlands State Bank were $193.1 million on December 31, 2012, an increase of $27.1 million from $166.0 million on December 31, 2011. Deposits increased $25.9 million from $141.0 on December 31, 2011 to $166.9 million on December 31, 2012. Net loans outstanding increased to $160.5 million as of December 31, 2012 from $131.3 million the previous year end. The allowance for loan and lease losses increased $547,000 to $2.6 million at the end of 2012 compared to $2.1 million on December 31, 2011.
