Lake Shore Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ Global Market: LSBK), the holding company for Lake Shore Savings Bank (the “Bank”), announced net income of $0.65 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2010, up 83% compared to net income of $0.35 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2009. For the six months ended June 30, 2010 net income was $1.37 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, an 80% increase compared to net income of $0.76 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the comparable period of 2009.

Highlights – Second Quarter 2010
  • Income before taxes increased by 98% compared to second quarter 2009.
  • Net interest income increased by 20.4% compared to second quarter 2009.
  • Net interest margin increased 35 basis points compared to second quarter 2009.
  • The Bank’s asset quality remained strong with nonperforming to total assets at 0.59%.
  • The Bank opened its new full-service branch in Depew, NY in April 2010.

“The momentum we developed early in the year continued through the second quarter with strong year-on-year revenue and earnings growth and continuation of our strong and stable asset quality,” said David C. Mancuso, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We added nearly $27 million in deposits in the second quarter, reflecting our successful expansion in the metropolitan Buffalo area and, in particular, our new location in Depew, New York. This new branch was opened in April and has already attracted more than $17 million in deposits, exceeding our initial expectations for this location.”

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2010 was $4.0 million, an increase of $0.56 million, or 16.3%, compared to the second quarter of 2009, and was reflective of the Company’s strong net interest income growth of 20.4% in the 2010 quarter. Revenue growth for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was up 17.3%, or $1.2 million, compared to the same period in 2009, and was also driven by the growth in net interest income.

Net interest income in the second quarter of 2010 increased by $0.58 million to $3.4 million, compared to the same period in 2009, reflecting the Bank’s 72 basis point decline in the rate paid on interest bearing liabilities. For the six months ended June 30, 2010 net interest income was $6.8 million, an increase of $1.2 million or 21%, compared to the same period in 2009. The year-to-date improvement in net interest income also reflects lower cost of funds, with rates paid on interest bearing liabilities down 75 basis points during the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same period in 2009.

Net interest margin for the second quarter of 2010 was 3.27%, a 35 basis point improvement compared to the same period in 2009, and a 15 basis point decline compared to the first quarter of 2010. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the Bank’s net interest spread increased 50 basis points over the same period in 2009. The increase in net interest spread reflects the lower market interest rate environment and the Bank’s disciplined deposit pricing strategy, which resulted in a 74 basis-point reduction in the total cost of funds verses a 24 basis-point decline in the yield on interest earning assets.

The provision for loan losses for the second quarter of 2010 was $0.20 million, an increase of $160,000 over the prior year quarter, reflecting an expected loss for a single commercial loan. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the provision was $0.25 million, up $90,000 compared to $0.16 million for the same period in 2009. Despite the increase to the Bank’s provision, our credit quality remains very strong. Our ratio of nonperforming loans to total loans remains significantly below industry averages at 0.69% for the second quarter of 2010, up 7 basis points compared to the prior year quarter, and down 15 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2010. At June 30, 2010 the Bank’s allowance for loan losses was 70.1% of non-performing loans, compared to 74.9% at March 31, 2010.

Non-interest income decreased by $19,000 and $18,000 for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, reflecting the absence of gains from loan sales which contributed $27,000 to both periods in 2009.

Non-interest expense decreased by $24,000 in the second quarter of 2010, to $2.9 million, in comparison to the same period in 2009. For the second quarter of 2010, the Bank had higher staffing costs, as well as increased occupancy expense related to the new branch opened in April 2010, offset by reduced professional services expense, as well as a $0.3 million reduction to FDIC insurance expense.

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, non-interest expense was $5.9 million, an increase of 4% from $5.6 million for the same period in 2009. The increase in non-interest expense in the six months ended June 30, 2010 was due to higher staffing and advertising costs and increased occupancy expense related to the April branch opening in Depew, New York. These expenses were partially offset by reduced professional services expense, as well as a $0.24 million reduction in FDIC insurance expense. During the quarter ended June 30, 2009, the FDIC imposed a special assessment on all financial institutions to replenish the deposit insurance reserve. The Bank’s FDIC insurance expense for second quarter 2009 included $185,000 related to this assessment.
