ENB Financial Corp Reports Fourth Quarter 2019 Results
(January 14, 2020) -- Ephrata, PA – ENB Financial Corp (OTCQX: ENBP), the bank holding company for Ephrata National Bank, reports net income for the fourth quarter of 2019 of $2,779,000, a $554,000, or 24.9% increase, from the $2,225,000 earned during the fourth quarter of 2018. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2019, was $11,395,000, a $1,646,000, or 16.9% increase, over the $9,749,000 earned in 2018. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $0.49 compared to $0.39 for the same period in 2018. Year-to-date earnings per share were $2.01 in 2019 compared to $1.71 in 2018.
The Corporation’s net interest income (NII) increased by $345,000, or 3.9%, and $3,494,000, or 10.5%, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to the same periods in 2018. The increase in NII primarily resulted from an increase in interest and fees on loans of $778,000, or 10.1%, and $5,352,000, or 19.1%, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to the same periods in 2018. This increase was partially offset by an increase in interest expense of $449,000, or 50.7%, and $1,745,000, or 51.7%, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to the same periods in 2018.
The Corporation recorded a credit to the provision for the allowance for loan losses of $70,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to provision expense of $190,000 for the fourth quarter of 2018, and provision expense of $770,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to $660,000 in 2018. The allowance as a percentage of total loans was 1.25% as of December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018. The Corporation recorded a credit to the provision in the fourth quarter of 2019 primarily as a result of a reduction to specific reserves for impaired loans.
Gains on the sale of securities for the three months ended December 31, 2019, were $219,000, compared to losses of $317,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, gains on securities transactions were $499,000, compared to losses of $291,000 in 2018, representing increases of $536,000 and $790,000, respectively. With market rates declining during 2019, management was able to sell securities at higher gains compared to the prior year.
Gains on the sale of mortgages increased by $66,000, or 13.2%, and $334,000, or 20.8%, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to the prior year’s periods. Mortgage production was higher in 2019 compared to 2018, resulting in higher gains that were partially offset by lower valuations of new mortgage servicing assets due to the low interest rate environment.
Total operating expenses increased by $682,000, or 8.2%, and $1,187,000, or 3.7%, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to the same periods in 2018. Salary and benefit expenses, which make up the largest portion of operating expenses, increased $650,000, or 13.4%, and $792,000, or 3.9%, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to the same periods in 2018. Benefit costs were higher for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, primarily due to higher health insurance costs. Other operating expenses were higher for both periods, driven primarily by increases in debit card processing, software-related expenses, and outside services.
