Commercial business, commercial real estate and construction loans totaled $467 million at March 31, 2017 and increased $64 million compared to the total at March 31, 2016 and increased $29 million compared to the total at December 31, 2016.

Robert F. Mangano, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated “Our first quarter of 2017 financial results reflected several important operating fundamentals. We have good momentum in our lending operations as we generated growth in our commercial business, commercial real estate and construction loan portfolio segments. Our new residential lending team contributed to a significant increase in non-interest income in the first quarter through the sale of $38 million of mortgages.” Mr. Mangano added, “We are beginning to see a positive effect of the increase in short-term interest rates through increasing yields on our variable rate commercial business, SBA, construction and consumer loans.”
 
Discussion of Financial Results
Net income was $1.9 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $2.2 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2016. Growth of loans and deposits generated a $139,000 increase in net interest income and higher residential lending activity produced $25 million of closed loans and $38 million of loan sales, which generated a net increase in gains on sales of loans of $686,000 and contributed to the $807,000 increase in non-interest income for the first quarter of 2017 compared to the first quarter of 2016. The combined increase in revenue was offset by a $150,000 provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2017 compared to a $200,000 credit (negative) provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2016 and a $1.1 million increase in non-interest expenses for the first quarter of 2017
