Franklin Financial Reports Q3 2018 Earnings



(Chambersburg, PA)  Franklin Financial Services Corporation (OTCQX: FRAF), the bank holding company of F&M Trust (the Bank), reported consolidated earnings of $4.0 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, as compared to third quarter 2017 earnings of $3.1 million, a 29% increase, and a net loss of $5.2 million for the second quarter of 2018. Net income for the first nine months of 2018 was $2.3 million compared with $9.4 million for the same period in 2017, a decrease of 75.4%. On a per share basis, diluted earnings were $0.91 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 and $0.53 for the first nine months of 2018, compared to $0.70 and $2.17 for the same periods in 2017. As previously reported, results for the second quarter, six months ended June 30, 2018, and nine months ended September 30, 2018, were adversely affected by impairment charges on a loan participation that was initially reported in our current report on Form 8-K filed May 31, 2018.



Compared to the third quarter of 2017, net interest income increased 9.8% to $10.4 million and the net interest margin increased to 3.77% from 3.71%. Noninterest income increased 5.0% to $3.1 million primarily from an increase in Investment and Trust Service fees and debit card income. Noninterest expense increased 3.2%, primarily due to increases in salaries and employee benefits during the period. The provision for loan losses remained unchanged at $250 thousand. The year-to-date provision for loan losses is negatively affected by the second quarter $8.7 million charge-off expense related to the loan participation.



Year-to-date net interest income increased by 8.7% to $30.1 million compared to the same period in 2017. Noninterest income grew by $437 thousand to $9.5 million.  Noninterest expense increased 16.3% due primarily to a $2.4 million reserve established in the second quarter for off-balance sheet commitments related to the previously disclosed loan participation. Without this reserve, noninterest expense increased 6.6% primarily due to increased salary and employee benefit expense and marketing initiatives.



Total assets at September 30, 2018 were $1.2 billion, a 2.5% increase when compared with total assets at September 30, 2017. Net loans increased 6.5% to $958.5 million, and total deposits increased 3.7% to $1.1 billion for the third quarter of 2018 from the same period last year. Additionally, the market value of assets under management and held at third-party brokers increased 6.8% to $871.4 million ($737.1 million and $134.3 million, respectively).

“The robust underlying momentum in each of our retail, commercial and wealth management business lines contributed to our strong earnings performance this quarter,” said Timothy G. Henry, President and CEO. “As we near the end of 2018, we continue to focus on the expansion of our sales and service platforms while optimizing our digital capabilities to better serve customers and deliver exceptional returns for our shareholders.”
