ARCHBOLD, OHIO, October 18, 2018, Farmers & Merchants Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: FMAO) today reported financial results for the 2018 third quarter and year-to-date September 30, 2018.

 

2018 Third Quarter Financial Highlights Include (on a year-over-year basis unless noted):

 

62 consecutive quarters of profitability

 

Total loans increased 5.5% to $838,698,000

 

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased 9.2% to $9,941,000

 

Net income increased 20.3% to $3,875,000

 

Earnings per basic and diluted share increased 20.0% to $0.42

Return on average equity was 11.19%, up from 9.76%

 

“2018 is shaping up to be a historic year for F&M as we continue to execute our growth initiatives and achieve strong financial results, while investing in our future,” stated Paul S. Siebenmorgen, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Throughout the year, our organic growth initiatives have focused on expanding our reach in newer markets and I am pleased with the success we have achieved so far.  F&M ended the quarter with record total loans, which increased 5.5% over the past 12 months.  In addition, we continue to convert offices into our new layout and will have upgraded two F&M offices by the end of 2018.  The investments in F&M’s physical locations, as well as in our digital and mobile banking platforms, are improving F&M’s customer experience and making it more efficient and convenient for our customers to interact with the Bank.  Finally, I am excited with the August 2018 announcement of the Limberlost Bancshares merger, which quickly expands F&M’s footprint in Indiana.  The merger brings together two well-performing banks that have a similar culture and focus on community banking values. We expect the merger to close at year end or in early first quarter 2019 and look forward to updating our shareholders, customers, communities, and associates on our progress.”  

 

Income Statement

Net income for the 2018 third quarter ended September 30, 2018, was $3,875,000, or $0.42 per basic and diluted share compared to $3,222,000, or $0.35 per basic and diluted share for the same period last year. The 20.3% improvement in net income for the 2018 third quarter was primarily due to a 9.2% increase in net interest income after provision for loan losses, partially offset by a 10.5% increase in noninterest expense.  Net income for the 2018 nine months was $11,756,000, or $1.27 per basic and diluted share compared to $9,284,000, or $1.01 per basic and diluted share for the nine months of 2017. As a result of the Tax Cuts and Job Act, the Bank’s tax rate was lowered which benefitted earnings.
