AMERIANA BANCORP REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2015 NET INCOME
OF $502,000 OR $0.17 PER SHARE

    NEW CASTLE, Ind. (April 20, 2015) – Ameriana Bancorp (NASDAQ: ASBI), parent company for Ameriana Bank, today announced net income for the first quarter of 2015 of $502,000, or $0.17 per basic and diluted share, compared with $729,000, or $0.24 per basic and diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014.
 
   Jerome J. Gassen, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I am very pleased to report continued  growth in our loan portfolio of $3.8 million for the quarter and growth in deposits of $11.6 million, with much of this success a result of our  Indianapolis metropolitan area retail expansion strategy."  Gassen commented that "earnings for the first quarter of 2015 were $227,000 less than the same quarter a year earlier, primarily due to a one-time event in 2014 that resulted in a total of $235,000 of interest income and expense reduction from the repurchase of a problem loan by the servicer. Earnings were also impacted by the operating expense of the two new banking centers opened in Hamilton County in the last half of 2014." Gassen added that he was "particularly pleased that as a result of continued growth in our capital position, we were able to again double our quarterly dividend to our shareholders to $0.04 per share."
 
   Commenting further on the Indianapolis retail expansion strategy, Gassen stated that "although opening new banking centers is initially dilutive to earnings, it provides a foundation for growth and a source of future earnings. I am very excited about the prospects of opening a banking center in Broad Ripple in mid-2015, which will be our first brick and mortar location in Marion County."
 
    Gassen commented that "the Bank's loan pipelines remain strong, and the Bank has liquidity and capital levels to support continued growth in the loan portfolio and balance sheet.  We hope that our efforts can be sustained by continued economic growth in the markets we serve."
 
   In the first quarter of 2015, total loans receivable grew 1.2% to $323.9 million, and total deposits grew 3.1% to $390.6 million. Total assets at March 31, 2015, were $482.7 million.
 
   The Bank's allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans receivable at March 31, 2015, was 1.23%.  The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-performing loans was 87.2%, compared with 78.4% at March 31, 2014.
 
   Ameriana Bancorp is a bank holding company.  Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Ameriana Bank, the Company offers an extensive line of banking services and provides a range of investments and securities products through banking centers in the central Indiana area.  Ameriana Bank owns Ameriana Insurance Agency, a full-service insurance agency, and Ameriana Financial Services, which offers securities and insurance products through LPL Financial (Member FINRA/SIPC).
 
   This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws.  Statements in this release that are not strictly historical are forward-looking and are based upon current expectations that may differ materially from actual results.  These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by the statements made herein.  These risks and uncertainties involve general economic trends, changes in interest rates, loss of deposits and loan demand to other financial institutions, substantial changes in financial markets, changes in real estate value and the real estate market, regulatory changes, possibility of unforeseen events affecting the industry generally, the uncertainties associated with newly developed or acquired operations, the outcome of pending litigation, and market disruptions and other effects of terrorist activities.  For discussion of these and other risks that may cause actual results to differ from expectations, refer to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the section entitled "Risk Factors."  The Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unforeseen events, except as required under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

AMERIANA BANCORP AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

NOTE A — BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The consolidated condensed financial statements include the accounts of Ameriana Bancorp (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Ameriana Bank (the “Bank”). The Bank has two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Ameriana Insurance Agency and Ameriana Financial Services, Inc. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

The unaudited interim consolidated condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and, therefore, do not include all information and disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the financial statements reflect all adjustments (comprised only of normal recurring adjustments and accruals) necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position and results of operations and cash flows. The consolidated condensed balance sheet of the Company as of December 31, 2014 has been derived from the audited consolidated balance sheet of the Company as of that date. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected in the full year or for any other period. These statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.

NOTE B — SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY

On March 30, 2015, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.04 per share. This dividend, totaling approximately $121,000, was accrued for payment to shareholders of record on April 10, 2015 and was paid on May 1, 2015.

Cash received from options exercised under all share-based compensation arrangements for the first quarter of 2015 was $52,000, with a tax benefit realized of $6,000. No stock options were granted during the first quarter of 2015.

NOTE C — EARNINGS PER SHARE

Earnings per share were computed as follows:

Diluted Earnings Per Share: Income available to common shareholders and assumed conversions

The risk characteristics of each loan portfolio segment are as follows:

Commercial Real Estate: These loans are viewed primarily as cash flow loans and secondarily as loans secured by real estate. Commercial real estate lending typically involves higher loan principal amounts and the repayment of these loans is generally dependent on the successful operation of the property securing the loan or the business conducted on the property securing the loan. Commercial real estate loans may be more adversely affected by conditions in the real estate markets or in the general economy. The properties securing the Bank’s commercial real estate portfolio are diverse in terms of type and geographic location. Management monitors and evaluates commercial real estate loans based on collateral and risk grade criteria. As a general rule, the Bank avoids financing single purpose projects unless other underwriting factors are present to help mitigate risk. In addition, management tracks the level of owner-occupied commercial real estate loans versus non-owner occupied loans.

Construction Real Estate: Construction loans are underwritten utilizing feasibility studies, independent appraisal reviews, sensitivity analysis of absorption and lease rates and financial analysis of the developers and property owners. Construction loans are generally based on estimates of costs and value associated with the completed project. These estimates may be inaccurate. Construction loans often involve the disbursement of substantial funds with repayment substantially dependent on the success of the ultimate project. Sources of repayment for these types of loans may be pre-committed permanent loans from approved long-term lenders, sales of developed property or an interim loan commitment from the Bank until permanent financing is obtained. These loans are closely monitored by on-site inspections and are considered to have higher risks than other real estate loans due to their ultimate repayment being sensitive to interest rate changes, timely completion and sale of the property, sale of the property at a price commensurate with the initial estimate, governmental regulation of real property, general economic conditions and the availability of long-term financing.

Commercial Loans and Leases: Commercial loans and leases are primarily based on the identified cash flows of the borrower and secondarily on the underlying collateral provided by the borrower. The cash flows of borrowers, however, may not be as expected and the collateral securing these loans may fluctuate in value. Most commercial loans are secured by the assets being financed or other business assets such as accounts receivable or inventory and may incorporate a personal guarantee; however, some short-term loans may be made on an unsecured basis. In the case of loans secured by accounts receivable, the availability of funds for the repayment of these loans may be substantially dependent on the ability of the borrower to collect amounts due from its customers.

Table of Contents

Residential and Consumer: With respect to residential loans that are secured by one-to four-family residences and are generally owner occupied, the Bank generally establishes a maximum loan-to-value ratio and requires private mortgage insurance if that ratio is exceeded. Home equity loans are typically secured by a subordinate interest in one-to four-family residences, and consumer loans are secured by consumer assets such as automobiles or recreational vehicles. Some consumer loans are unsecured such as small installment loans and certain lines of credit. Repayment of these loans is primarily dependent on the personal income of the borrowers, which can be impacted by economic conditions in their market areas such as unemployment levels. Repayment can also be impacted by changes in property values on residential properties. Risk is mitigated by the fact that the loans are of smaller individual amounts and spread over a large number of borrowers.

Municipal: Municipal loans are primarily based on the identified cash flows of the borrower and secondarily on the underlying collateral provided by the borrower. Most municipal loans are secured by the full faith and credit of the municipality. The availability of funds for the repayment of these loans may be substantially dependent on the ability of the municipality to collect taxes or other revenue.

Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses Methodology:

Bank policy is designed to ensure that an adequate allowance for loan and lease losses (“ALLL”) will be maintained. Primary responsibility for ensuring that the Bank has processes in place to consistently assess the adequacy of the ALLL rests with the Board. The Board has charged the Chief Credit Officer with responsibility for establishing the methodology to be used and to assess the adequacy of the ALLL quarterly. The methodology will be reviewed and affirmed by the Loan Review Officer. Quarterly, the Board will review recommendations from the Chief Credit Officer to adjust the allowance as appropriate.

The methodology employed by the Bank for each portfolio segment will at a minimum contain the following:

 

  1) Loans will be segmented by type of loan.

 

  2) Loans will be further segmented by risk grades.

 

  3) The required ALLL for types of performing homogeneous loans which do not have a specific reserve will be determined by applying a factor based on historical losses averaged over the twelve quarters prior to the most recent quarter. In those instances where the Bank’s historical experience is not available, management will develop factors based on industry experience and best practices.

 

  4) All criticized and classified loans will be tested for impairment by applying one of three methodologies:

 

  a. Present value of future cash flows;

 

  b. Fair value of collateral less cost to sell; or

 

  c. The loan’s observable market price.

 

  5) All troubled debt restructurings (“TDR”) are considered impaired loans.

 

  6) Loans tested for impairment will be removed from other pools to prevent layering (double-counting).

 

  7) The required ALLL for each group of loans will be added together to determine the total required ALLL for the Bank. The required ALLL will be compared to the current ALLL to determine the required provision to increase the ALLL or credit to decrease the ALLL.

The historical loss experience is determined by portfolio segment and is based on the actual loss history experienced by the Bank over the twelve quarters prior to the most recent quarter. Management believes the historical loss experience methodology is appropriate in the current economic environment, as it captures loss rates that are comparable to the current period being analyzed.

Management also factors in the following qualitative considerations:

 

1) Changes in policies and procedures;

 

2) Changes in national, regional and local economic and business conditions;

 

3) Changes in the composition and size of the portfolio and in the terms of loans;

 

4) Changes in the experience, ability and depth of lending management and other relevant staff;

 

5) Changes in the volume and severity of past due loans, the volume of non-accrual loans, and the volume and severity of adversely classified or graded loans;

 

6) Changes in the quality of the Bank’s loan review system;

 

14


Table of Contents
7) Changes in the value of underlying collateral for collateral-dependent loans;

 

8) The existence and effect of any concentration of credit, and changes in the level of such concentrations; and

 

9) The effect of other external factors such as competition and legal and regulatory requirements on the level of estimated credit losses in the existing portfolio.

(1) Policy for Charging Off Loans:

A loan should be charged off at any point in time when it no longer can be considered a bankable asset, meaning collectable within the parameters of policy. The Bank shall not renew any loan, or put a loan on a demand basis, only to defer a problem, nor is it appropriate to attempt long-term recoveries while reporting loans as assets.

An unsecured loan generally should be charged off no later than when it is 120 days past due as to principal or interest. For loans in the legal process of foreclosure against collateral of real and/or liquid value, the 120-day rule does not apply. Such charge-offs can be deferred until the foreclosure process progresses to the point where the Bank can adequately determine whether or not any ultimate loss will result. In similar instances where other legal actions will cause extraordinary delays, such as the settlement of an estate, if the loan is well collateralized, the 120-day period may be extended. On loans where the Bank is unsecured or not fully collateralized, the loan should be charged off or written down to the documented collateral value rather than merely being placed on non-accrual status.

All charge-offs and forgiveness of debt equal to or greater than $100,000 must be approved by the Loan Committee upon recommendation by the Chief Credit Officer. The Loan Committee consists of the Bank’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Credit Officer, Chief Banking Officer and Loan Review Officer. Charge-offs less than $100,000 and greater than $10,000 and decisions to defer the charge-off of a loan must be approved by the Chief Credit Officer.

Narrative Description of Borrower Rating:

Grade 1 — Highest Quality (Pass)

This loan represents a credit extension of the highest quality. The borrower’s historic (at least five years) cash flows manifest extremely large and stable margins of coverage. Balance sheets are conservative, well capitalized, and liquid. After considering debt service for proposed and existing debt, projected cash flows continue to be strong and provide ample coverage. The borrower typically reflects broad geographic and product diversification and has broad access to alternative financial markets. Also included in this category may be loans secured by U.S. government securities, U.S. government agencies, highly rated municipal bonds, insured savings accounts, and insured certificates of deposit drawn on high quality banks.

Table of Contents

Grade 2 — Excellent Quality (Pass)

This loan has a sound primary and secondary source of repayment. The borrower has proven access to alternative sources of financing. This loan carries a low level of risk, with minimal loss exposure. The borrower has the ability to perform according to the terms of the credit facility. The margins of cash flow coverage are strong. This category also includes loans secured by high quality traded stocks and lower grade municipal bonds (must still be investment grade).

Grade 3 — Good Quality (Pass)

This loan has a sound primary source of repayment. The borrower may have access to alternative sources of financing, but sources are not as widely available as they are to a higher graded borrower. This loan carries a normal level of risk, with minimal loss exposure. The borrower has the ability to perform according to the terms of the credit facility. The margins of cash flow coverage are satisfactory but vulnerable to more rapid deterioration than the higher quality loans. Real estate loans in this category display advance rates below the suggested maximum, debt coverage well in excess of the suggested level, or are leased beyond the loan term by a “credit” tenant.

Grade 4 — Acceptable Quality (Pass)

The borrower is a reasonable credit risk and demonstrates the ability to repay the debt from normal business operations. Risk factors may include reliability of margins and cash flows, liquidity, dependence on a single product or industry, cyclical trends, depth of management, or limited access to alternative financing sources. Historic financial information may indicate erratic performance, but current trends are positive. Quality of financial information is adequate, but is not as detailed and sophisticated as information found on higher graded loans. If adverse circumstances arise, the impact on the borrower may be significant. All small business loans extended based upon credit scoring should be classified in this category unless deterioration occurs, in which case they should bear one of the below mentioned grades.

Grade 5 — Marginal Quality (Pass)

The borrower is an acceptable credit risk and while it can demonstrate it has the ability to repay the debt from normal business operations, the coverage is not as strong as an Acceptable Quality loan. Weakness in one or more areas are defined. Risk factors would typically include a higher leverage position than desirable, low liquidity, weak or sporadic cash flow, the lack of reasonably current and complete financial information, and/or overall financial trends are erratic.

Grade 6 — Elevated Risk, Management Attention (Watch)

While the borrower at origination was not considered a high risk potential, there are characteristics related to the financial condition, and/or a level of concern regarding either or both the primary and secondary source of repayment, that may preclude this from being a pass credit. These credit facilities are considered “pass” credits but exhibit the potential of developing a more serious weakness in their operation going forward. Usually, a credit in this category will be upgraded or downgraded on further analysis within a short period of time.

Grade 7 — Special Mention

These credit facilities have developing weaknesses that deserve extra attention from the loan officer and other management personnel. If the developing weakness is not corrected or mitigated, there may be deterioration in the ability of the borrower to repay the Bank’s debt in the future. This grade should not be assigned to loans which bear certain peculiar risks normally associated with the type of financing involved, unless circumstances have caused the risk to increase to a level higher than would have been acceptable when the credit was originally approved. Loans where actual, not potential, weaknesses or problems are clearly evident and significant should generally be graded in one of the grade categories below.

Grade 8 — Substandard

Loans and other credit extensions bearing this grade are considered to be inadequately protected by the current sound worth and debt service capacity of the borrower or of any pledged collateral. These obligations, even if apparently protected by collateral value, have well-defined weaknesses related to adverse financial, managerial, economic, market, or political conditions which have clearly jeopardized repayment of principal and interest as originally intended. Furthermore, there is the possibility that some future loss will be sustained by the Bank if such weaknesses are not corrected. Clear loss potential, however, does not have to exist in any individual assets classified as substandard.

Grade 9 — Doubtful

Loans and other credit extensions graded “9” have all the weaknesses inherent in those graded “8,” with the added characteristic that the severity of the weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full highly questionable or improbable based upon currently existing facts, conditions, and values. The probability of some loss is extremely high, but because of certain important and reasonably specific factors, the amount of loss cannot be determined. Such pending factors could include merger or liquidation, additional capital injection, refinancing plans, or perfection of liens on additional collateral. Loans in this classification should be placed in nonaccrual status, with collections applied to principal on the Bank’s books.

Table of Contents

Grade 10 — Loss

Loans in this classification are considered uncollectible and cannot be justified as a viable asset of the Bank. This classification does not mean the loan has absolutely no recovery value, but that it is neither practical nor desirable to defer writing off this loan even though partial recovery may be obtained in the future.

Impaired Loans: For all loan classes, a loan is designated as impaired when, based on current information or events, it is probable that the Bank will be unable to collect all amounts due (principal and interest) according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. Payments with insignificant delays not exceeding 90 days outstanding are not considered impaired. Certain non-accrual and substantially delinquent loans may be considered to be impaired. Generally, loans are placed on non-accrual status at 90 days past due and accrued interest is reversed against earnings, unless the loan is well-secured and in the process of collection. The accrual of interest on impaired and non-accrual loans is discontinued when, in management’s opinion, the borrower may be unable to meet payments as they become due.

For all loan classes, when interest accrual is discontinued all unpaid accrued interest is reversed when considered uncollectible. When a loan is in a non-accrual status, all cash payments of interest are applied to loan principal. Should the loan be reinstated to accrual status, all cash payments of interest received while in non-accrual status will be taken into income over the remaining life of the loan using the level yield accounting method.

(1) Includes all loans that were classified as impaired at any time during 2014 (not just impaired loans at December 31, 2014), and their average balance for only the period during which they were classified as impaired.
(2) Interest recorded in income during only the period the loans were classified as impaired, for all loans that were classified as impaired at any time during 2014.

For all loan classes, interest income on loans individually classified as impaired is recognized on a cash basis after all past due and current principal payments have been made.

Non-Accrual Loans: Any loan which becomes 90 days delinquent, the full collection of principal and interest is in doubt, or a portion of principal has been charged off, should be placed on non-accrual status. The loan does not have to be placed on non-accrual if the charge-off is part of a Chapter 13 reaffirmation. At the time a loan is placed on non-accrual, all accrued but unpaid interest will be reversed from interest income. Placing the loan on non-accrual does not relieve the borrower of the obligation to repay interest.

Table of Contents

For all loan classes, when a loan is on non-accrual status all payments are applied to loan principal.

A loan placed on non-accrual may be restored to accrual status when all delinquent principal and interest has been brought current, and the Bank expects full payment of the remaining contractual principal and interest including any previous charge-offs. Should the loan be reinstated to accrual status, all payments of interest received while in non-accrual status will be taken into income over the remaining life of the loan using the level yield accounting method. Restoring a non-accrual loan to accrual status requires the approval of the CCO. All loans placed on non-accrual status require the approval of the CCO and must be documented on the loan system and in the file.

Total non-accrual loans at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 included $1,172,000 and $1,082,000 of TDRs, respectively.

Troubled Debt Restructurings: Our loan and lease portfolio includes certain loans that have been modified as a TDR, where concessions have been granted to borrowers who have experienced financial difficulties. These concessions typically result from loss mitigation efforts and could include reductions in the interest rate, payment extensions, forgiveness of principal, forbearance or other actions. Certain TDRs are classified as nonperforming at the time of restructuring and typically are returned to performing status after considering the borrower’s sustained repayment performance for a reasonable period of at least six consecutive months.

When we modify loans and leases as a TDR, we evaluate any possible impairment similar to other impaired loans based on the present value of expected future cash flows, discounted at the contractual interest rate of the original loan or lease agreement, or use the current fair value of the collateral, less selling costs for collateral dependent loans. If we determine that the value of the modified loan is less than the recorded balance of the loan (net of previous charge-offs, deferred loan fees or costs and unamortized premium or discount), impairment is recognized through a specific allowance or charge-off to the allowance. In periods subsequent to modification, we evaluate all TDRs, including those that have payment defaults, for possible impairment and recognize impairment through the allowance.

There were no loans classified as a TDR during either the three-month period ended March 31, 2015, or the three-month period ended March 31, 2014.

There were no TDRs that had payment defaults during the three-month period ended March 31, 2015, or the three-month period ended March 31, 2014. Default occurs when a loan or lease is 90 days or more past due or transferred to nonaccrual and is within 12 months of restructuring.

NOTE F — ACCOUNTING DEVELOPMENTS

 

    Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”)

The FASB has issued ASU No. 2015-05, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer’s Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement.” Existing GAAP does not include explicit guidance about a customer’s accounting for fees paid in a cloud computing arrangement. Examples of cloud computing arrangements include: (a) software as a service; (b) platform as a service; (c) infrastructure as a service; and (d) other similar hosting arrangements. The amendments add guidance to Subtopic 350-40, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software, which will help entities evaluate the accounting for fees paid by a customer in a cloud computing arrangement. The guidance already exists in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ in paragraphs 985-605-55-121 through 55-123, but it is included in a Subtopic applied by cloud service providers to determine whether an arrangement includes the sale or license of software. The amendments provide guidance to customers about whether a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license. If a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license, then the customer should account for the software license element of the arrangement consistent with the acquisition of other software licenses. If a cloud computing arrangement does not include a software license, the customer should account for the arrangement as a service contract. The amendments do not change the accounting for a customer’s accounting for service contracts. As a result of the amendments, all software licenses within the scope of Subtopic 350-40 will be accounted for consistent with other licenses of intangible assets. For public business entities, the amendments will be effective for annual periods, including interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted for all entities. An entity can elect to adopt the amendments either: (1) prospectively to all arrangements entered into or materially modified after the effective date; or (2) retrospectively. For prospective transition, the only disclosure requirements at transition are the nature of and reason for the change in accounting principle, the transition method, and a qualitative description of the financial statement line items affected by the change. For retrospective transition, the disclosure requirements at transition include the requirements for prospective transition and quantitative information about the effects of the accounting change. The Company will adopt the methodologies prescribed by this ASU by the date required, and is still evaluating the impact the ASU will have on its financial position or results of operation.

The FASB has issued an ASU No. 2015-02, “Consolidation (Topic 810): Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis,” which is intended to improve targeted areas of consolidation guidance for legal entities such as limited partnerships, limited liability corporations, and securitization structures (collateralized debt obligations, collateralized loan obligations, and mortgage-backed security transactions). The ASU focuses on the consolidation evaluation for reporting organizations (public and private companies and not-for-profit organizations) that are required to evaluate whether they should consolidate certain legal entities. In addition to reducing the number of consolidation models from four to two, the new standard simplifies the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ (Codification) and improves current GAAP by:

 

    Placing more emphasis on risk of loss when determining a controlling financial interest. A reporting organization may no longer have to consolidate a legal entity in certain circumstances based solely on its fee arrangement, when certain criteria are met.

 

    Reducing the frequency of the application of related-party guidance when determining a controlling financial interest in a variable interest entity (VIE).

 

    Changing consolidation conclusions for public and private companies in several industries that typically make use of limited partnerships or VIEs.

The ASU will be effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2015, for public companies. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company will adopt the methodologies prescribed by this ASU by the date required, and is still evaluating the impact the ASU will have on its financial position or results of operation.

In May 2014, the FASB, in joint cooperation with IASB, issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.” The topic of Revenue Recognition had become broad, with several other regulatory agencies issuing standards which lacked cohesion. The new guidance establishes a “common framework” and “reduces the number

of requirements to which an entity must consider in recognizing revenue” and yet provides improved disclosures to assist stakeholders reviewing financial statements. The amendments in this Update are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is not permitted. The Company will adopt the methodologies prescribed by this ASU by the date required, and is still evaluating the impact the ASU will have on its financial position or results of operations.

NOTE G — RETIREMENT PLAN

The Company entered into separate agreements with certain officers and directors that provide retirement benefits. The Company records an expense equal to the projected present value of the payment due at the full eligibility date. The liability for the plan at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 was $2,101,000 and $2,102,000, respectively. The expense for the plan was $31,000 and $55,000 for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, respectively.

NOTE H — DISCLOSURES ABOUT FAIR VALUE OF ASSETS AND LIABILITIES

ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements, defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. A fair value hierarchy has been established that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in active markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3 Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Following is a description of the valuation methodologies used for instruments measured at fair value on a recurring basis and recognized in the accompanying balance sheet, as well as the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy.

Recurring Measurements: Available-for-sale Securities

Where quoted market prices are available in an active market, securities are classified within Level 1 of the valuation hierarchy. The security valued in Level 1 is a mutual fund.

Level 2 securities include U.S. Government agency and U.S. Government-sponsored enterprise pass-through mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage obligations. Level 2 securities are valued by a third party pricing service commonly used in the banking industry utilizing observable inputs, and the values are reviewed by the Bank’s management. The pricing provider utilizes evaluated pricing models that vary based on asset class. These models incorporate available market information including quoted prices of securities with similar characteristics and, because many fixed-income securities do not trade on a daily basis, apply available information through processes such as benchmark curves, benchmarking of like securities, sector grouping and matrix pricing. In addition, model processes, such as an option adjusted spread model is used to develop prepayment and interest rate scenarios for securities with prepayment features. The Company has reviewed the methodologies used by the third party and has determined that the securities are properly classified as Level 2.

The Company held no Level 3 securities in its available-for-sale portfolio on either March 31, 2015 or December 31, 2014.

Transfers between Levels

Transfers between levels did not occur during the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Level 3 Reconciliation

There is no reconciliation for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, respectively, as there were no fair value measurements using significant unobservable (Level 3) inputs for the available-for-sale portfolio during those periods.

Nonrecurring Measurements

Following is a description of valuation methodologies used for instruments measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis and recognized in the accompanying consolidated condensed balance sheet, as well as the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy:

Collateral-Dependent Impaired Loans

The estimated fair value of collateral-dependent impaired loans is based on the appraised fair value of the collateral, less estimated cost to sell. Collateral-dependent impaired loans are classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

The Company considers the appraisal or evaluation as the starting point for determining fair value and then considers other factors and events in the environment that may affect the fair value. Appraisals of the collateral underlying collateral-dependent loans are obtained when the loan is determined to be collateral-dependent and subsequently as deemed necessary by management. Appraisals are reviewed for accuracy and consistency by management. Appraisers are selected from the list of approved appraisers maintained by management. The appraised values are reduced by discounts to consider lack of marketability and estimated cost to sell if repayment or satisfaction of the loan is dependent on the sale of the collateral. These discounts and estimates are developed by management by comparison to historical results.

Other Real Estate Owned

Other real estate owned (“OREO”) is carried at the lower of fair value at acquisition date or current estimated fair value, less estimated cost to sell when the real estate is acquired. Estimated fair value of OREO is based on appraisals or evaluations. OREO is classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

 

26


Table of Contents

Appraisals of OREO are obtained when the real estate is acquired and subsequently as deemed necessary by management. Appraisals are reviewed for accuracy and consistency by management. Appraisers are selected from the list of approved appraisers maintained by management.

Loan servicing rights are evaluated for impairment based upon the fair value of the rights as compared to carrying amount. If the carrying amount exceeds fair value, impairment is recorded so that the servicing asset is carried at fair value. Fair value is determined based on market prices for comparable mortgage servicing contracts, when available, or alternatively based on a valuation model that calculates the present value of estimated future net servicing income. The valuation model utilizes interest rate, prepayment speed, and default rate assumptions that market participants would use in estimating future net servicing income and that can be validated against available market data.

The following table presents the fair value measurements of assets recognized in the accompanying balance sheet measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis and the level within the ASC 820 fair value hierarchy in which the fair value measurements fall at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014:

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Fair values are based on estimates using present value and other valuation techniques in instances where quoted market prices are not available. These techniques are significantly affected by the assumptions used, including discount rates and estimates of future cash flows. As such, the derived fair value estimates may not be realized upon an immediate settlement of the instruments. Accordingly, the aggregate fair value amounts presented do not represent, and should not be construed to represent, the underlying value of the Company.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument:

Cash and Cash Equivalents and Stock in FHLB: The carrying amounts reported in the condensed consolidated balance sheets approximate those assets’ fair values.

Interest-bearing time deposits: The carrying amounts reported in the condensed consolidated balance sheets approximate those assets’ fair values.

Held to maturity securities: The carrying amount for March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 represents the amortized cost balance as of that date. Fair value is based on quoted market prices, if available. If a quoted market price is not available, fair value is estimated using quoted market prices for similar securities.

Loans held for sale: The carrying amount approximates fair value due to the insignificant time between originations and date of sale. The carrying amount is the amount funded.

Loans: The fair values for loans are estimated using a discounted cash flow calculation that applies external interest rates used to price new similar loans to a schedule of aggregated expected monthly maturities on loans.

Mortgage Servicing Rights: The initial amount recorded is an estimate of the fair value of the streams of net servicing revenues that will occur over the estimated life of the servicing arrangement, and the initial amount recorded is then amortized over the estimated life. Annually, a valuation of the servicing rights is performed by an independent third party and reviewed by the Bank’s management, with impairment, if any, recognized through a valuation allowance. The valuation is based on the discounted cash flow method utilizing Bloomberg’s Median Forecasted Prepayment Speeds for mortgage-backed securities assumed to possess enough similarities to the Bank’s servicing portfolio to facilitate a comparison.

Interest and Dividends Receivable/Payable: The fair value of accrued interest and dividends receivable/payable approximates carrying values.

Table of Contents

Deposits: The fair values of non-maturity demand, savings, and money market accounts are equal to the amount payable on demand at the balance sheet date. Fair values for certificates of deposit are estimated using a discounted cash flow calculation that applies interest rates currently being offered on deposits to a schedule of aggregated expected monthly maturities on deposits.

Borrowings: The fair value of borrowings is estimated using a discounted cash flow calculation, based on borrowing rates for periods comparable to the remaining terms to maturity of the borrowings.

Drafts Payable: The fair value approximates carrying value.

NOTE I — COLLATERAL FOR LETTERS OF CREDIT

As of March 31, 2015, there were two outstanding letters of credit from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis totaling $5,014,000 that the Company had collateralized with residential mortgage loans.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (the “MD&A”) is designed to provide a narrative on our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, critical accounting policies, off-balance sheet arrangements and the future impact of accounting standards. It is useful to read our MD&A in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements contained in Part I in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Form 10-Q”), our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 (the “Form 10-K”), and our other reports on Forms 10-Q and current reports on Forms 8-K and other publicly available information.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Form 10-Q may contain certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements are not historical facts, rather statements based on Ameriana Bancorp’s (the “Company”) current expectations regarding its business strategies, intended results and future performance. Forward-looking statements are generally preceded by terms such as “expects,” “believes,” “anticipates,” “intends” and similar expressions. Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties including changes in economic conditions in the Company’s market area, changes in policies by regulatory agencies, fluctuations in interest rates and real estate property values in our market area, demand for loans and deposits in the Company’s market area, changes in the quality or composition of our loan portfolio, changes in accounting principles, laws and regulations, and competition that could cause actual results to differ materially from historical earnings and those presently anticipated or projected. Additional factors that may affect our results are discussed in the Form 10-K under Part I, Item 1A- “Risk Factors” and in other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. The factors listed above could affect the Company’s financial performance and could cause the Company’s actual results for future periods to differ materially from any opinions or statements expressed with respect to future periods in any current statements.

The Company does not undertake, and specifically disclaims any obligation, to publicly release the result of any revisions that may be made to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.

Who We Are

Ameriana Bancorp is an Indiana chartered bank holding company subject to regulation and supervision by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Federal Reserve Board”) under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended. The Company became the holding company for Ameriana Bank, an Indiana chartered commercial bank headquartered in New Castle, Indiana (the “Bank”), in 1990. The Company also holds a minority interest in a limited partnership organized to acquire and manage real estate investments, which qualify for federal tax credits.

The Bank began operations in 1890. Since 1935, the Bank has been a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank (the “FHLB”) System. Its deposits are insured to applicable limits by the Deposit Insurance Fund, administered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “FDIC”). The Bank conducts business through its main office at 2118 Bundy Avenue, New Castle, Indiana and through thirteen branch offices located throughout Central Indiana. Our primary markets are in Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Henry, Madison, Marion and Shelby counties.

The Bank has two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Ameriana Insurance Agency (“AIA”) and Ameriana Financial Services, Inc. (“AFS”). AIA provides insurance sales from offices in New Castle, Greenfield and Avon, Indiana. AFS operates a brokerage facility in conjunction with LPL Financial that provides non-bank investment product alternatives to its customers and the general public.

What We Do

The Bank is a community-oriented financial institution. Our principal business consists of attracting deposits from the general public and investing those funds, along with borrowed funds, primarily in mortgage loans on single-family residences, multi-family loans, construction loans, commercial real estate loans, and commercial and industrial

loans, and, to a lesser extent, consumer loans, leases and loans to municipalities. We have from time to time purchased loans and loan participations in the secondary market. We also invest in various federal and government agency obligations and other investment securities permitted by applicable laws and regulations, including mortgage-backed, municipal and equity securities. We offer customers in our market area time deposits with terms ranging from three months to seven years, interest-bearing and noninterest-bearing checking accounts, savings accounts and money market accounts. Our primary source of borrowings is FHLB advances. Through our subsidiaries, we engage in insurance, investment and brokerage activities.

Our primary source of income is net interest income, which is the difference between the interest income earned on our loan and investment portfolios and the interest expense incurred on our deposits and borrowings. Our loan portfolio typically earns more interest than the investment portfolio, and our deposits typically have a lower average rate than FHLB advances and other borrowings. Several factors affect our net interest income. These factors include loan, investment, deposit, and borrowing portfolio balances, their composition, the length of their maturities, re-pricing characteristics, liquidity, credit, and interest rate risk, as well as market and competitive conditions and the current interest rate environment.

Executive Overview of the First Quarter of 2015

The Company recorded net income of $502,000, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the three-month period ended March 31, 2015, which represented a $227,000 decrease from the same period a year earlier that was due primarily to a total of $235,000 in interest income and expense reversal related to the repurchase of a non-performing loan by the servicer in the first quarter of 2014, and the cost in the first quarter of 2015 of approximately $193,000 related to two new banking centers opened during the last half of 2014.

 

    The Company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.04 per share, which represented a $0.02 per share increase over the same quarter a year earlier.

 

    At March 31, 2015, the Bank’s tier 1 leverage ratio was 9.41%, the common equity tier 1 risk-based capital ratio and the tier 1 risk-based capital ratio were both 13.67%, and the total risk-based capital ratio was 14.90%. All four ratios were considerably above the levels required under regulatory guidelines to be considered “well capitalized.” The new Basel III capital rules did not have a significant impact on the Bank’s capital ratios.

 

    Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis for the first quarter of 2015 represented a decrease of $175,000, or 4.7%, from the same quarter of 2014, of which $173,000 represented interest income recognized in the first quarter of 2014 related to the repurchase of a non-performing loan by the servicer. Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis was also negatively affected by margin compression, as average interest-earning assets were $10.4 million, or 2.6%, higher than the same quarter of 2014.

 

    Net interest margin of 3.45% on a fully tax-equivalent basis for the first quarter of 2015 was 27 basis points lower than the same period in 2014.

 

    The Bank recorded a $105,000 provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2015, which reflected a $45,000 reduction from the same quarter a year earlier, primarily as a result of improved credit quality.

 

    Other income of $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2015 represented an increase of $195,000, or 14.3%, from the year earlier quarter that resulted primarily from the following changes:

 

    A $149,000 increase in brokerage and insurance commissions that resulted primarily from a $138,000 increase in the contingent bonus received by the Bank’s insurance subsidiary related to the claims loss experience on insured properties;

 

    A $46,000, or 7.8%, increase in other fees and service charges on deposit accounts due primarily to an increase in the number of checking accounts that resulted from the Bank’s continuing focus on growing core deposit relationships;

 

    A $39,000 increase in gains on sales of loans and servicing rights compared to the same quarter a year earlier that resulted from a larger percentage of new loans being sold in the secondary market compared to the same quarter a year earlier, when a strategy was in place to put most new residential mortgage loan originations into the Bank’s portfolio; and

    $32,000 in gains from sales of other real estate owned (“OREO”) with no losses or write-downs, compared with no sales or write-downs in the same quarter a year earlier; partly offset by

 

    A $43,000 decrease in other that related primarily to the first quarter of 2014 receipt of $36,000 in claim proceeds in excess of the planned replacement cost for landscaping damage at a banking center; and

 

    A $23,000 decrease in OREO income that related primarily to the receipt in the first quarter of 2014 of delinquent rent from a tenant of a commercial strip center.

 

    $4.3 million in other expense for the first quarter of 2015 was $401,000, or 10.2%, higher than the same quarter in 2014 and resulted primarily from the following changes:

 

    A $101,000, or 4.5%, increase in salaries and employee benefits that was due primarily to $111,000 of compensation and benefits related to personnel hired for the two new banking centers opened in the last half of 2014, partly offset by a $40,000 decrease in expense related to retirement programs;

 

    A $96,000 increase in other expense that resulted primarily from a $62,000 reversal in the first quarter of 2014 of loan expense as a result of the repurchase of a non-performing loan by the servicer;

 

    An $85,000 increase in OREO expense, of which $62,000 related to a residential condominium project acquired in December 2014, and a real estate tax refund that resulted in a $20,000 expense reduction in the first quarter of 2014;

 

    A $47,000 increase in data processing expense that related primarily to our cost to support greater use of new technology by our customers; and

 

    A $57,000 increase in net occupancy and furniture and equipment expense, with $46,000 related to the two new banking centers opened in the last half of 2014.

 

    Income before income taxes was $659,000 for the first quarter of 2015 and income tax expense was $157,000, which resulted in an effective rate of 23.8% that was lower than the statutory rate due primarily to a significant amount of tax-exempt income from bank-owned life insurance.

For the first quarter of 2015, total assets increased by $9.9 million, or 2.1%, to $482.7 million:

 

    Investments in interest-bearing demand deposits increased $2.6 million to $29.7 million at March 31, 2015, of which $29.5 million was invested at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.

 

    The $48.6 million total for investment securities available-for-sale represented a $510,000 increase from December 31, 2014, and resulted primarily from a $2.6 million purchase of a Fannie Mae pass-through mortgage-backed security reduced by principal payments during the quarter. The portfolio consists primarily of mortgage-backed securities insured by either Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

 

    The investment securities held-to-maturity portfolio increased $2.8 million during the third quarter, primarily the result of the purchase of $3.1 million of tax-exempt local municipal bonds, partly offset by principal repayments.

 

    Net loans receivable increased $3.8 million during the quarter to $319.9 million at March 31, 2015, and the Bank had a strong loan pipeline at the end of the first quarter.

 

    Total non-performing loans of $4.6 million, or 1.4% of total net loans, at March 31, 2015, represented an increase of $180,000 for the quarter, but a reduction of $658,000 from March 31, 2014.

Table of Contents
    The allowance for loan losses of $4.0 million at March 31, 2015 was 1.23% of total loans and 87.2% of non-performing loans, compared to 1.22% and 88.9%, respectively, at December 31, 2014, and 1.29% and 78.4%, respectively, at March 31, 2014.

 

    Premises and equipment of $15.8 million represented a $310,000 increase for the first quarter of 2015 that resulted primarily from capital expenditures totaling $586,000, of which $447,000 was for the purchase of replacement ATMs that are compatible with a new operating system and capable of supporting chip card technology, partly offset by $268,000 of depreciation.

 

    OREO of $6.6 million at March 31, 2015 represented a $33,000 decrease from December 31, 2014 that was the net result of the addition of a property with a book value of $40,000 and two sales of properties with a total book value of $73,000.

 

    During the first quarter of 2015, total deposits increased by $11.6 million, or 3.1%, to $390.6 million and resulted from a $13.7 million increase of non-maturity deposits, partly offset by a $2.1 million decline in certificate of deposit balances.

 

    Total borrowed money of $42.8 million at March 31, 2015, was down $3.0 million for the quarter as a result of the maturity of a Federal Home Loan Bank advance with an interest rate of 2.70%.

 

    Total shareholders’ equity of $41.6 million at March 31, 2015 represented an increase of $536,000 for the quarter, and resulted from net income of $502,000, an $81,000 improvement to a $443,000 unrealized gain net of income tax related to the Company’s available-for-sale investment securities portfolio, $58,000 from the exercise of stock options and $16,000 of share-based compensation related to stock options, partly offset and by $121,000 in shareholder dividends declared during the quarter.

Strategic Issues

To diversify the balance sheet and provide new avenues for loan and deposit growth, the Bank further expanded into the greater Indianapolis area, adding three full-service offices in 2008 and 2009 in the suburban markets of Carmel, Fishers and Westfield. As a result, more than half of our banking centers are located in the Indianapolis metropolitan area. These banking centers are focused on generating new deposit and lending relationships, where significant opportunities exist to win market share from smaller institutions lacking the depth of financial products and services, and large institutions that have concentrated on large business customers.

In 2012, the Bank closed its McCordsville Banking Center. The Fishers Banking Center, which is in close proximity to the McCordsville and Geist communities, allowed Ameriana to serve the financial needs of its McCordsville customers from a consolidated and still convenient location. In 2013, the Bank purchased two vacant banking centers in Hamilton County. The Noblesville Banking Center opened in September 2014, and the Fishers Crossing Banking Center in November 2014. With the addition of these two offices, Ameriana has five locations in Hamilton County. A Broad Ripple Banking Center, the Bank’s first brick and mortar location in Marion County, is scheduled to open in the second half of 2015. The Bank is in the process of determining the appropriate time to construct a banking center building on its Plainfield property, based on its long-term expansion strategy. Although implementation of the expansion strategy has resulted in an initial negative effect on earnings, management believes that the Bank’s expansion into new markets is extremely important to its long-term sustainable growth.

On March 31, 2015, Ameriana announced that it will consolidate the Downtown New Castle Banking Center with the Bundy Avenue Banking Center, also located in New Castle, where customers are provided full access to services and amenities not available at the Downtown Banking Center. The proposed closing date of the Downtown New Castle Banking Center is July 6, 2015. Ameriana is committed to developing a branch network that meets the changing needs of customers while maximizing profitability for its shareholders.

Earnings pressure is expected to continue as the uncertain economy maintains stress on efforts to grow the loan portfolio, and also due to the current interest rate environment that has proven to be difficult for the financial institution industry, including pressure on net interest margins. Deposit acquisition remains competitive; however, the Bank’s disciplined pricing has resulted in further reduction of its cost of deposits. The Bank’s pricing strategies, along with an increase in the size of the investment portfolio, have mitigated the negative effect of the low interest rate environment. Managing noninterest expense prudently has been a priority of the Bank, and management has utilized aggressive cost control measures including job restructuring and eliminating certain discretionary expenditures, to limit growth in noninterest expense as new banking centers are added.

With the Bank’s mantra of “Soundness. Profitability. Growth – in that order, no exceptions,” the priorities, culture and risk strategy of the Bank are focused on asset quality and credit risk management. Despite the current economic pressures, as well as the industry’s challenges related to compliance and regulatory requirements, tightened credit standards, and capital preservation, management remains cautiously optimistic that business conditions will continue to improve over the longer term and is steadfast in the belief that the Company is well positioned to grow and enhance shareholder value as this recovery occurs.

With a community banking history stretching over 125 years, the Bank has built its strong reputation with community outreach programs and being a workplace of choice. By combining its rich tradition with its ability to provide its customers with financial advice and solutions, the Bank will accomplish its mission by:

 

    being our customer’s first choice for financial advice and solutions;

 

    informing and educating customers on the basics of money management; and

 

    understanding and meeting customer’s financial needs throughout their life cycle.

Serving customers requires the commitment of all Ameriana Bank associates to provide exceptional service and sound financial advice. We believe these qualities will differentiate us from our competitors and increase profitability and shareholder value.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accounting and reporting policies of the Company are maintained in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and conform to general practices within the banking industry. The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in detail in the Notes to the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements contained in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions. The financial position and results of operations of the Company can be affected by these estimates and assumptions, and such estimates and assumptions are integral to the understanding of reported results. Critical accounting policies are those policies that management believes are the most important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and results, and they require management to make estimates that are difficult, subjective or complex, and subject to change if actual circumstances differ from those that were assumed. The following are the Company’s critical accounting policies:

Allowance for Loan Losses. The allowance for loan losses provides coverage for probable losses in the Company’s loan portfolio. Management evaluates the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses each quarter based on changes, if any, in underwriting activities, the loan portfolio composition (including product mix and geographic, industry or customer-specific concentrations), trends in loan performance, including the level of non-performing, delinquent and classified loans, regulatory guidance and economic factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective, as it requires the use of significant management estimates. Many factors can affect management’s estimates of specific and expected losses, including volatility of default probabilities, rating migrations, loss severity and economic and political conditions. The allowance is increased through provisions charged to earnings and reduced by net charge-offs.

The Company determines the amount of the allowance based on relative risk characteristics of the loan portfolio. The allowance recorded for commercial loans is based on reviews of individual credit relationships and an analysis of the migration of commercial loans and actual loss experience. The allowance recorded for noncommercial loans is based on an analysis of loan mix, risk characteristics of the portfolio, fraud loss and bankruptcy experiences and historical losses, adjusted for current trends, for each loan category or group of loans. The allowance for loan losses relating to impaired loans is based on the loan’s observable market price, the collateral for certain collateral-dependent loans, or the discounted cash flows using the loan’s effective interest rate.

Regardless of the extent of the Company’s analysis of customer performance, portfolio trends or risk management processes, certain inherent but undetected losses are probable within the loan portfolio. This is due to several factors, including inherent delays in obtaining information regarding a customer’s financial condition or changes in their unique business conditions, the subjective nature of individual loan evaluations, collateral assessments and the

interpretation of economic trends. Volatility of economic or customer-specific conditions affecting the identification and estimation of losses for larger, non-homogeneous credits and the sensitivity of assumptions utilized to establish allowances for homogenous groups of loans are among other factors. The Company estimates a range of inherent losses related to the existence of these exposures. The estimates are based upon the Company’s evaluation of risk associated with the commercial and consumer allowance levels and the estimated impact of the current economic environment. Future adjustments to the allowance for loan losses may be necessary if conditions differ substantially from the assumptions used in making the evaluations. In addition, various regulatory agencies periodically review the Company’s allowance for loan losses. Such agencies may require the Company to recognize adjustments to the allowance based on their judgments at the time of their examination.

Mortgage Servicing Rights. Mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”) associated with loans originated and sold, where servicing is retained, are capitalized and included in other assets in the consolidated balance sheet. The value of the capitalized servicing rights represents the present value of the future servicing fees arising from the right to service loans in the portfolio. Critical accounting policies for MSRs relate to the initial valuation and subsequent impairment tests. The methodology used to determine the valuation of MSRs requires the development and use of a number of estimates, including anticipated principal amortization and prepayments of that principal balance. Events that may significantly affect the estimates used are changes in interest rates, mortgage loan prepayment speeds and the payment performance of the underlying loans. The carrying value of the MSRs is periodically reviewed for impairment based on a determination of fair value. Impairment, if any, is recognized through a valuation allowance and is recorded as amortization of intangible assets.

Valuation Measurements. Valuation methodologies often involve a significant degree of judgment, particularly when there are no observable active markets for the items being valued. Investment securities and residential mortgage loans held for sale are carried at fair value, as defined by FASB fair value guidance, which requires key judgments affecting how fair value for such assets and liabilities is determined. In addition, the outcomes of valuations have a direct bearing on the carrying amounts for goodwill and intangible assets. To determine the values of these assets and liabilities, as well as the extent to which related assets may be impaired, management makes assumptions and estimates related to discount rates, asset returns, prepayment rates and other factors. The use of different discount rates or other valuation assumptions could produce significantly different results, which could affect the Company’s results of operations.

Income Tax Accounting. We file a consolidated federal income tax return. The provision for income taxes is based upon income in our consolidated financial statements. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect of a change in tax rates on our deferred tax assets and liabilities is recognized as income or expense in the period that includes the enactment date.

Under U.S. GAAP, a valuation allowance is required to be recognized if it is “more likely than not” that a deferred tax asset will not be realized. The determination of the realizability of the deferred tax asset is highly subjective and dependent upon judgment concerning our evaluation of both positive and negative evidence, our forecasts of future income, applicable tax planning strategies, and assessments of current and future economic and business conditions. Positive evidence includes the existence of taxes paid in available carry-back years as well as the probability that taxable income will be generated in future periods, while negative evidence includes any cumulative losses in the current year and prior two years and general business and economic trends. At March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, we determined that our existing valuation allowance was adequate, largely based on available tax planning strategies and our projections of future taxable income. Any reduction in estimated future taxable income may require us to increase the valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets. Any required increase to the valuation allowance would result in additional income tax expense in the period and could have a significant impact on our future earnings.

Positions taken in our tax returns may be subject to challenge by the taxing authorities upon examination. The benefit of an uncertain tax position is initially recognized in the financial statements only when it is more likely than not the position will be sustained upon examination by the tax authorities. Such tax positions are both initially and subsequently measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more likely than not of being realized upon settlement with the tax authority, assuming full knowledge of the position and all relevant facts. Differences between our position and the position of tax authorities could result in a reduction of a tax benefit or an increase to a tax liability, which could adversely affect our future income tax expense.

We believe our tax policies and practices are critical accounting policies because the determination of our tax provision and current and deferred tax assets and liabilities have a material impact on our net income and the carrying value of our assets. We believe our tax liabilities and assets are adequate and are properly recorded in the condensed consolidated financial statements at March 31, 2015.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

The balance sheet totals of $482.7 million at March 31, 2015 represented an increase of $9.9 million, or 2.1%, from the December 31, 2014 totals of $472.8 million. The increase resulted primarily from $11.6 million, or 3.1%, growth in the Bank’s deposit accounts, partly offset by a $3.0 million reduction in borrowings. The growth in total assets for the period included a $3.8 million increase in net loans receivable, a $3.4 million increase in investment securities and a $2.6 million increase in interest-bearing demand deposits.

Cash and cash equivalents increased $2.1 million during the first quarter to $35.3 million at March 31, 2015. Included in the total at March 31, 2015 was $29.5 million of interest-bearing demand deposits at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Cash and cash equivalents represent an immediate source of liquidity to fund loans or meet deposit outflows. The increase for the first three months of 2015 resulted primarily from the growth in deposit accounts reduced by the repayment of an FHLB advance exceeding the growth in the loan portfolio and the investment securities portfolio.

At March 31, 2015, the Bank held $4.2 million in FDIC insured bank certificates of deposit, which had a weighted-average rate of 1.24% and a weighted-average remaining life of 1.6 years. There were no purchases or maturities during the first quarter of 2015.

Investment securities available-for-sale increased by $510,000 to $48.6 million at March 31, 2015 from $48.1 million at December 31, 2014. The increase resulted primarily from a $2.6 million purchase of a Fannie Mae pass-through mortgage-backed security and a $123,000 increase in the market value of the portfolio that resulted from a decrease in market interest rates, partly offset by $2.1 million in principal repayments on mortgage-backed pass-through and collateralized mortgage obligation securities

Investment securities held-to-maturity increased by $2.8 million to $9.9 million at March 31, 2015 from $7.1 million at December 31, 2014, primarily the result of the purchase of $3.1 million of tax-exempt local municipal bonds, partly offset by $193,000 of principal repayments on mortgage-backed pass-through securities and the maturity of a $35,000 local municipal bond.

All mortgage-backed pass-through securities and collateralized mortgage obligations in the available-for-sale and held-to-maturity portfolios, with a total fair value of $51.3 million at March 31, 2015, are insured by either Ginnie Mae, a U.S. Government agency, or by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, each a U.S. Government sponsored enterprise.

Net loans receivable increased by $3.8 million to $319.9 million at March 31, 2015 from $316.1 million at December 31, 2014, as construction loans increased $4.8 million to $18.4 million, commercial real estate loans increased $2.7 million to $114.1 million, and we added a $1.1 million municipal loan, increasing total municipal loans to $1.9 million. Commercial loans and leases declined $2.0 million to $27.4 million and consumer loans totaling $2.0 million at March 31, 2015 were relatively unchanged for the three-month period. Residential mortgage loans originated for sale into the secondary market totaled $2.2 million, and new originations retained in the portfolio were less than repayments during the first three months of 2015, and as a result total residential real estate loans declined $2.9 million to $161.0 million at March 31, 2015. The Bank’s mortgage-banking strategy is reviewed regularly to ensure that it remains consistent with the Bank’s overall balance sheet management objectives.

Premises and equipment of $15.8 million at March 31, 2015 represented a $310,000 increase from $15.5 million at December 31, 2014. The net increase resulted from capital expenditures totaling $586,000, of which $447,000 was for the purchase of replacement ATMs that are compatible with a new operating system and capable of supporting chip card technology, partly offset by $268,000 of depreciation and an $8,000 disposition during the period.

Goodwill was $656,000 at March 31, 2015, unchanged from December 31, 2014. Goodwill of $457,000 relates to deposits associated with a banking center acquired in 1998, and $199,000 is the result of three separate insurance business acquisitions. The Bank’s impairment tests reflected no impairment of the goodwill as of March 31, 2015.

We have investments in life insurance on employees and directors, which had a balance or cash surrender value of $28.6 million and $28.4 million at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. The non-taxable increase in cash surrender value of this life insurance was $177,000 for the first three months of 2015, compared to $182,000 for the same period a year earlier.

OREO totaled $6.6 million at March 31, 2015, a $33,000 decrease from December 31, 2014. There was one single-family property with a book value of $40,000 transferred to OREO, and two sales of properties with book values totaling $73,000 that resulted in gains totaling $32,000 during the three-month period ended March 31, 2015.

Other assets of $8.6 million at March 31, 2015 represented a $271,000 reduction from December 31, 2014, which resulted primarily from a $305,000 net decrease in total prepaid expense.

Total liabilities increased $9.3 million, or 2.2%, from $431.8 million at December 31, 2014 to $441.1 million at March 31, 2015, primarily due to the increase in deposits.

Total deposits of $390.6 million at March 31, 2015 represented an increase of $11.6 million, or 3.1%, from December 31, 2014. The Bank has maintained a strong focus on nurturing existing and attracting new core deposit relationships, while limiting its efforts related to highly rate-sensitive deposits. During the first three months of 2015, money market, savings and checking balances, exclusive of public funds checking accounts, increased $15.7 million, as customers continued to choose the more liquid deposit products, due primarily to the ongoing economic uncertainty and related low interest rate environment. Public funds checking balances decreased $2.0 million to $40.8 million at March 31, 2015, and total certificates of deposit balances declined $2.1 million to $134.9 million, due mostly to a migration of maturing balances to the Bank’s non-maturity deposit products. The Bank has concentrated on strategies designed to grow total balances in multi-product deposit relationships, and continues to utilize pricing strategies designed to produce growth with an acceptable marginal cost for both existing and new deposits.

Total borrowed money of $42.8 million at March 31, 2015 was down $3.0 million from December 31, 2014 as a result of the maturity of a Federal Home Loan Bank advance with an interest rate of 2.70%. Wholesale funding options and strategies are continuously analyzed to ensure that the Bank retains sufficient sources of credit to fund all of its needs, and to control funding costs by using this alternative to organic deposit account funding when appropriate.

Drafts payable of $1.1 million at March 31, 2015 decreased $169,000 from $1.3 million at December 31, 2014. This difference will vary and is a function of the dollar amount of checks issued near period end and the time required for those checks to clear.

Total shareholders’ equity of $41.6 million at March 31, 2015 represented a $536,000 increase over the total of $41.1 million at December 31, 2014. The increase resulted from net income of $502,000, an $81,000 improvement to a $443,000 unrealized gain net of income tax related to the Company’s available-for-sale investment securities portfolio, $58,000 from exercises of stock options and $16,000 in share-based compensation related to stock options, partly offset by $121,000 in dividends declared during the three-month period ended March 31, 2015. The Company’s and the Bank’s regulatory capital ratios were all considerably above the levels required under regulatory guidelines to be considered “well capitalized.”

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

First Quarter of 2015 compared to the First Quarter of 2014

The Company recorded net income of $502,000, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015, compared to net income of $729,000, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014.

The earnings decline of $227,000, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015 compared to the same quarter a year earlier was due primarily to a total of $235,000 in interest income and expense reversal related to the repurchase of a non-performing loan by the servicer in the first quarter of 2014, and the cost in the first quarter of 2015 of approximately $193,000 related to two new banking centers opened during the last half of 2014.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis of $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2015 represented a decrease of $175,000, or 4.7%, compared to the same period of 2014, of which $173,000 represented interest income recognized in the first quarter of 2014 related to the repurchase of a non-performing loan by the servicer. Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis was negatively affected by a decrease in net interest margin, offset partly by the benefit from a $10.4 million, or 2.6%, increase in average interest-earning assets to $417.2 million. Net interest margin on a fully tax-equivalent basis for the first quarter of 2015 of 3.45% was 27 basis points lower than the year earlier period.

Tax-exempt interest was $54,000 for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $36,000 for the same period of 2014, and resulted from municipal securities and municipal loans. Tax-equivalent adjustments were $23,000 and $15,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, respectively.

“Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis” is calculated by increasing net interest income by an amount that represents the additional taxable interest income that would be needed to produce the same amount of after-tax income as the tax-exempt interest income included in net interest income for the period.

“Net interest margin on fully tax-equivalent basis” is calculated by dividing annualized “net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis” by average interest-earning assets for the period.

Our “fully tax-equivalent basis” calculations are based on a federal income tax rate of 34%.

We recorded a provision for loan losses of $105,000 for the first quarter of 2015, a $45,000 reduction from the year earlier quarter that was reflective of the declining pressure of economic conditions on credit quality, including a decrease in non-performing loans and charge-offs. Net charge-offs decreased from $43,000 for the first quarter of 2014 to $24,000 for the first quarter of 2015. Total charge-offs of $38,000 for the first quarter of 2015 included no loans with specific reserves at December 31, 2014.

(1) Total non-accrual loans and accruing loans 90 days or more past due at March 31, 2015 included $1.2 million of TDRs, which consisted of four residential real estate loans totaling $986,000 and three commercial loans totaling $186,000.
(2) Other non-performing assets represent property acquired through foreclosure or repossession. This property is carried at the lower of its fair market value or its carrying value.

The allowance for loan losses of $4.0 million at March 31, 2015 was $90,000 lower than a year earlier, but the allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans ratio increased from 78.41% at March 31, 2014 to 87.16% at March 31, 2015, due to a lower total of non-performing loans. Non-performing loans of $4.6 million at March 31, 2015 represented a $658,000 decrease from the total of $5.2 million at March 31, 2014, but a $180,000 increase from the end of the prior quarter with a corresponding $371,000 decrease in total loans past due 30 to 90 days from the prior quarter. It is management’s opinion that the allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2015 is adequate based on measurements of the credit risk in the entire portfolio as of that date.

At March 31, 2015, the Bank had $7.4 million in loans categorized as TDRs, with seven loans totaling $1.2 million also included in the table above in the total for loans accounted for on a non-accrual basis. The total of $7.4 million included $3.7 million related to a hotel in northern Indiana, 20 loans on residential properties totaling $2.6 million, a $915,000 loan for developed commercial land and three commercial loans totaling $186,000.

Other Income

The Company recorded other income of $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2015, an increase of $195,000, or 14.3%, from the same period a year earlier that resulted primarily from the following changes:

 

    A $149,000 increase in brokerage and insurance commissions to $567,000 that resulted primarily from a $145,000 increase in revenue earned by the Bank’s insurance subsidiary that resulted mostly from a $138,000 increase in the contingent bonus received related to the claims loss experience on insured properties;

 

    A $46,000, or 7.8%, increase in other fees and service charges on deposit accounts to $634,000 for the first quarter of 2015 from $588,000 for the year earlier quarter, that was due primarily to a 5.6% increase in the number of checking accounts since the end of the first quarter of 2014 that resulted from the Bank’s continuing focus on growing core deposit relationships;

 

    A $39,000 increase in gains on sales of loans and servicing rights to $55,000 from $16,000 that resulted from a larger percentage of new loans being sold in the secondary market in the first quarter of 2015 compared with the same quarter a year earlier, when a strategy was in place to put most new loan originations into the Bank’s portfolio; and

Table of Contents
    $32,000 in gains from sales of OREO with no losses or write-downs, compared with no sales or write-downs of OREO in the same quarter a year earlier; partly offset by

 

    A $43,000 decrease in other that related primarily to the first quarter of 2014 receipt of $36,000 in claim proceeds in excess of the planned replacement cost for landscaping damage at a banking center; and

 

    A $23,000 decrease in OREO income to $64,000 that related primarily to the receipt in the first quarter of 2014 of delinquent rent from a tenant of a commercial strip center.

Other Expense

Total other expense of $4.3 million for the first quarter of 2015 was $401,000, or 10.2%, higher than the first quarter of 2014, with the following major differences:

 

    A $101,000, or 4.5%, increase in salaries and employee benefits to $2.4 million that was due primarily to $111,000 of compensation and benefits related to personnel hired for the two new banking centers opened in the last half of 2014, partly offset by a $16,000 decrease in retirement benefits expense related to our frozen defined benefit plan and a $24,000 decrease in the expense related to the retirement plan for certain officers;

 

    A $96,000 increase in other expense that resulted primarily from the $62,000 reversal in the first quarter of 2014 of loan expense as a result of the repurchase of a non-performing loan by the servicer;

 

    An $85,000 increase in OREO expense to $124,000 of which $62,000 related to a residential condominium project acquired in December 2014, and a real estate tax refund that resulted in $20,000 expense reduction in the first quarter of 2014;

 

    A $47,000 increase in data processing expense to $280,000 that related primarily to our cost to support greater use of new technology by our customers;

 

    A $57,000 increase in net occupancy and furniture and equipment expense, with $46,000 related to the two new banking centers opened in the last half of 2014; and

 

    A $19,000 increase in legal and professional fees for the first quarter of 2015 compared to the same quarter a year earlier.

Income Tax Expense

The Company recorded income tax expense of $157,000 on pre-tax income of $659,000 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2015, compared to income tax expense of $284,000 on pre-tax income of $1.0 million for the same period a year earlier. Both quarters had a significant amount of tax-exempt income, primarily from bank-owned life insurance.

We have a deferred state tax asset that is primarily the result of operating losses sustained since 2003. We started recording a valuation allowance against our current period state income tax benefit in 2005 due to our concern that we may not be able to use more than the tax asset already recorded on the books without modifying the use of Ameriana Investment Management, Inc. (“AIMI”), our investment subsidiary, which was liquidated effective December 31, 2009. Operating income from AIMI was not subject to state income taxes under state law, and as a result was also a major factor in the growth of the deferred state tax asset.

The Company also has a deferred federal tax asset that is composed of tax benefit from a net operating loss carry-forward and purchased tax credits. The federal loss carry-forward expires in 2026, and the tax credits begin to expire in 2023. The tax credits include alternative minimum tax credits, which have no expiration date. Management believes that the Company will be able to utilize the benefits recorded for loss carry-forwards and credits within the allotted time periods.

Table of Contents

In addition to the liquidation of AIMI, the Bank has initiated several strategies designed to expedite the use of both the deferred state tax asset and the deferred federal tax asset. Through sales of $34.5 million of municipal securities and only two purchases since December 31, 2006, that segment of the investment securities portfolio has been reduced to $5.4 million. The proceeds from these sales have been reinvested in taxable financial instruments. The Bank has periodically evaluated a sale/leaseback transaction that could result in a taxable gain on its office properties, and also allow the Bank to convert nonearning assets to assets that will produce taxable income. Additionally, the Bank is exploring options related to reducing its current investment in tax-exempt bank owned life insurance policies that involve the reinvestment of the proceeds in taxable financial instruments with a similar or greater risk-adjusted after-tax yield. Sales of banking centers not important to long-term growth objectives that would result in taxable gains and reduced operating expenses could be considered by the Bank.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

In the normal course of operations, we engage in a variety of financial transactions that, in accordance with GAAP, are not recorded in our financial statements. These transactions involve, to varying degrees, elements of credit, interest rate and liquidity risk. Such transactions are used primarily to manage customers’ requests for funding and take the form of loan commitments and lines of credit.

We do not have any off-balance-sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Liquidity is the ability to meet current and future obligations of a short-term nature. Historically, funds provided by operations, loan repayments and new deposits have been our principal sources of liquid funds. In addition, we have the ability to obtain funds through the sale of investment securities and mortgage loans, through borrowings from the FHLB system, and through the brokered certificates market. We regularly adjust the investments in liquid assets based upon our assessment of (1) expected loan demand, (2) expected deposit flows, (3) yields available on interest-earning deposits and securities and (4) the objectives of our asset/liability program.

The Company is a separate entity and apart from the Bank and must provide for its own liquidity. In addition to its operating expenses, the Company is responsible for the payment of dividends declared for its shareholders and the payment of interest on its subordinated debentures. At times, the Company has repurchased its stock. Substantially all of the Company’s operating cash is obtained from subsidiary dividends. Payment of such dividends to the Company by the Bank is limited under Indiana law.

At March 31, 2015, we had $37.3 million in loan commitments outstanding and $61.6 million of additional commitments for line of credit receivables. Certificates of deposit due within one year of March 31, 2015 totaled $73.9 million, or 18.9% of total deposits. If these maturing certificates of deposit do not remain with us, other sources of funds must be used, including other certificates of deposit, brokered CDs, and borrowings. Depending on market conditions, we may be required to pay higher rates on such deposits or other borrowings than currently paid on the certificates of deposit due on or before March 31, 2016. However, based on past experiences we believe that a significant portion of the certificates of deposit will remain. We have the ability to attract and retain deposits by adjusting the interest rates offered. We held no brokered CDs at March 31, 2015 or at December 31, 2014.

Our primary investing activity, the origination and purchase of loans, is offset by the sale of loans and principal repayments. In the first three months of 2015, net loans receivable increased by $3.8 million, or 1.2%.

Financing activities consist primarily of activity in deposit accounts and FHLB advances. Deposit flows are affected by the overall level of interest rates, the interest rates and products we offer, and our local competitors and other factors. Total deposits increased by $11.6 million, or 3.1%, during the first three months of 2015. We had FHLB advances of $25.0 million and $28.0 million at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

The Bank is subject to various regulatory capital requirements set by the FDIC, including a risk-based capital measure. The Company is also subject to similar capital requirements set by the Federal Reserve Board. The risk-based capital guidelines include both a definition of capital and a framework for calculating risk-weighted assets by assigning balance sheet assets and off-balance sheet items to broad risk categories.

Basel III. On July 9, 2013, the federal bank regulatory agencies issued a final rule that revised their risk-based capital requirements and the method for calculating risk-weighted assets to make them consistent with agreements that were reached by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (“Basel III”) and certain provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act. The final rule applies to all depository institutions, top-tier bank holding companies with total consolidated assets of $500 billion or more and top-tier savings and loan holding companies.

The rule established a new common equity Tier 1 minimum capital requirement (4.5% of risk-weighted assets), increased the minimum Tier 1 capital to risk-based assets requirement (from 4.0% to 6.0% of risk-weighted assets) and assigned a higher risk weight (150%) to exposures that are more than 90 days past due or are on nonaccrual status and to certain commercial real estate facilities that finance the acquisition, development or construction of real property.

The rule also includes changes in what constitutes regulatory capital, some of which are subject to a two-year transition period. These changes include the phasing-out of certain instruments as qualifying capital. In addition, Tier 2 capital is no longer limited to the amount of Tier 1 capital included in total capital. Mortgage servicing rights, certain deferred tax assets and investments in unconsolidated subsidiaries over designated percentages of common stock will be required to be deducted from capital, subject to a two-year transition period. Finally, Tier 1 capital will include accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”), (which includes all unrealized gains and losses on available for sale debt and equity securities), subject to a two-year transition period. A key provision of the new rules permits all non-advanced approaches institutions, generally those institutions with less than $250 billion in total assets, to make a one-time, irrevocable election to opt out of the requirement to include most components of AOCI in Tier 1 capital. With the filing of their respective March 31, 2015 regulatory reports, the Bank and the Company made the one-time, irrevocable election to opt out.

The new capital requirements also include changes in the risk-weights of assets to better reflect credit risk and other risk exposures. These include a 150% risk weight (up from 100%) for certain high volatility commercial real estate acquisition, development and construction loans and non-residential mortgage loans that are 90 days past due or otherwise on nonaccrual status; a 20% (up from 0%) credit conversion factor for the unused portion of a commitment with an original maturity of one year or less that is not unconditionally cancellable; a 250% risk weight (up from 100%) for mortgage servicing rights and deferred tax assets that are not deducted from capital; and increased risk-weights (from 0% to up to 600%) for equity exposures.

Finally, the rule limits capital distributions and certain discretionary bonus payments if the banking organization does not hold a “capital conservation buffer” consisting of 2.5% of common equity Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets in addition to the amount necessary to meet its minimum risk-based capital requirements.

The final rule became effective on January 1, 2015. The capital conservation buffer requirement will be phased in beginning January 1, 2016, at 0.625% of risk-weighted assets, increasing each year until fully implemented at 2.5% on January 1, 2019. It is management’s belief that, as of March 31, 2015, the Company and the Bank have met all capital adequacy requirements under Basel III on a fully phased-in basis if such requirements were currently effective.

There are five capital categories defined in the regulations, ranging from well capitalized to critically under-capitalized. Classification in any of the undercapitalized categories can result in actions by regulators that could have a material effect on a bank’s operations. At March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Bank was categorized as “well capitalized” and met all subject capital adequacy requirements. There are no conditions or events since March 31, 2015 that management believes have changed this classification.

ITEM 1 – LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

On March 18, 2014, the City of Noblesville filed action seeking to take title of the real estate purchased by Ameriana Bank that was used to open a banking center in September 2014. The suit seeks to acquire title pursuant to condemnation proceedings and the City has made an offer to acquire the real estate for $375,000. That offer has been rejected by the Bank. The City has agreed not to take action before July 1, 2016, during which time the Bank can continue to operate its banking center. The Court has now entered its order approving the agreement.
