Middlefield Banc Corp. Reports 2017 First Half Financial Results

MIDDLEFIELD, OHIO, July 26, 2017 ◆◆◆◆ Middlefield Banc Corp. (NASDAQ: MBCN) today reported financial results for the 2017 first half and second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

2017 First Half Financial Highlights versus 2016 First Half (unless noted):

    Net income was up 35.0% to $4.6 million
    Earnings per diluted share decreased 6.9% to $1.61 per share, as a result of a 44.6% increase in the average number of diluted shares outstanding
    Total net loans increased 50.2% to $861.3 million
    Organic total net loans increased 11.0%
    Total interest income improved 43.0% to $21.1 million
    Tier 1 capital ratio remains strong at 9.95%

“Middlefield’s 2017 second quarter and year-to-date financial results reflect the contribution of the Liberty Bank, N.A. acquisition, robust organic loan growth throughout our Central and Northeast Ohio markets, and stable asset quality,” stated Thomas G. Caldwell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Year-to-date, total net loans increased 11.0% organically, and over the past three months were up 3.7% organically. In addition, we ended the second quarter with a robust pipeline of potential new loans. I am encouraged by recent loan growth and demand trends, which demonstrates Middlefield’s growing banking franchise and stable economic trends within our local geographies. While total net loans increased 50.2%, our asset quality remains strong as nonperforming loans to total loans has declined to 1.45% at June 30, 2017 from 1.64% for the same period last year. As a result of Middlefield’s strong year-to-date performance, we expect 2017 will be another good year for the Bank.”
