ENB Financial Corp Reports Fourth Quarter 2015 Results
(January 14, 2016) -- Ephrata, PA – ENB Financial Corp (OTCBB: ENBP), the bank holding company for Ephrata National Bank, reported net income for the fourth quarter of 2015 of $1,995,000, a $193,000, or 10.7% increase, over the $1,802,000 earned during the fourth quarter of 2014. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2015, was $6,910,000, an $182,000, or 2.6% decrease, from the same period in 2014. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $0.70 compared to $0.63 for the same period in 2014. Year-to-date earnings per share were $2.42 in 2015 compared to $2.48 in 2014.
For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Corporation’s core earnings or net interest income (NII) increased $637,000, or 2.8%. The increase in NII was caused by a $606,000, or 19.6% reduction in deposit costs, and a decrease in borrowing costs of $326,000, or 20.6%. In the fourth quarter of 2015, NII experienced a slight decrease of $17,000, or 0.3%, from the same period in 2014. Fourth quarter NII was negatively impacted by a call on a collateralized mortgage obligation (CMO), which resulted in accelerated amortization expense of $385,000. Absent this event, fourth quarter NII would have reflected a $368,000, or 6.5% increase. The Corporation is benefiting from a higher level of variable rate loans and the December 16, 2015 Federal Reserve action to raise the overnight Federal Funds rate, which effectively increased the Prime rate to 3.50%. Excluding the CMO call, the Corporation’s interest income increased $132,000, or 2.0%, for the fourth quarter of 2015 and interest expense decreased $236,000, or 21.7%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.
The Corporation recorded $150,000 of expense related to the provision for loan losses for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to a credit provision of $50,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014, representing a $200,000 swing in income between the two periods. The increase in provision expense compared to the prior year was primarily due to one commercial loan charge-off recorded in the first quarter of 2015 and loan growth throughout the year. For the fourth quarter of 2015, no additional provision was necessary compared to a $250,000 provision in the prior year’s fourth quarter. The Corporation’s non-performing loans have continued to decline, standing at 0.15% of total loans as of December 31, 2015, compared to 0.29% as of December 31, 2014. The allowance as a percentage of total loans was 1.36% as of December 31, 2015, compared to 1.52% as of December 31, 2014, due primarily to loan portfolio growth in 2015.
The gain from sale of securities remains high but is down from prior years’ levels. The gains from the sale of securities decreased by $90,000, or 7.3%, and $269,000, or 8.7%, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, compared to the same periods in 2014. The Corporation was able to generate $1,150,000 and $2,840,000 of net gains on the sale of securities for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, compared to $1,240,000 and $3,109,000 for the same periods in 2014.
The gain on the sale of mortgages increased by $27,000, or 16.5%, and by $392,000, or 94.7%, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, compared to the same periods in 2014. The Corporation expanded its mortgage division in 2014 and has placed new emphasis on obtaining more of the mortgage market share and increasing mortgage gains resulting in higher income in 2015 compared to the prior year.

Total operating expenses increased $241,000, or 4.0%, and $1,314,000, or 5.6%, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, compared to the same periods in 2014. Salary and benefit expenses, which make up the largest portion of operating expenses, increased $226,000, or 6.4%, and $853,000, or 6.1%, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, compared to the same periods in 2014.
