"During the first nine months of 2013, our loan originations have remained strong. We are excited about expanding our mortgage origination operation into Broome County, New York, with the opening of our loan production office on the Vestal Parkway," said Thomas M. Carr, President and COO. 

Nonperforming Loans

Our nonperforming loans to total loans ratio has decreased to .86% at September 30, 2013 from 1.02% at December 31, 2012. Net loan charge-offs to average loans for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 remained low at 0.08%, consistent with the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 when net recoveries totaled $9,000. The allowance for loan losses was 0.99% of total loans at September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

Liabilities

Deposits totaled $396.6 million at September 30, 2013, a decrease of $13.0 million or 3%. The $13.0 million decrease primarily consists of a $14.1 million decrease in time deposits and a $4.1 million decrease in NOW accounts, partially offset by a $2.3 million increase in money market accounts. Borrowed funds increased by $6.0 million or 11%.

Shareholders' Equity

Shareholders' equity decreased $9.6 million to $57.3 million at September 30, 2013 compared to December 31, 2012. The decrease in shareholders' equity is attributable to the Bank redeeming $10.5 million of preferred stock issued to the United States Treasury Department through the Small Business Lending Fund. The current level of shareholders' equity equates to a book value per share of $18.29 at September 30, 2013, compared to $18.50 at December 31, 2012. Dividends paid to common shareholders were $0.23 and $0.69 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $0.22 and $0.64 for the same periods in 2012, representing increases of 4.5% for the three month period and 7.8% for the nine month period.
