Diluted earnings per share increased by 8.0% to $2.69 for the nine month period versus $2.49 for the same period in 2011.

“The Bank had a strong third quarter with sustained balance sheet growth. Our noninterest income growth of 21% over the same quarter last year is especially important as net margins are under continued pressure” notes Joseph V. Roller II, the Bank’s president and CEO.

The increase of $1,749,000 (5.4%) in net interest income for the nine month period of 2012 versus the same period in 2011 was primarily a function of continued growth in the loan portfolio and a reduction in the cost for deposits.

Noninterest income of $5.6 million for the September 2012 quarter was up $975,000 (21.0%) compared to the same quarter in 2011. The Bank continued to generate solid Wealth Management income, which increased by $388,000 (11.2%) compared to the third quarter of 2011. Gains on loans sold resulted in $200,000 of noninterest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. This is the second quarter the Bank sold 30-year conforming loans to the secondary market.
