Middlefield Banc Corp. Reports 2017 Third Quarter and Nine Month Financial Results

MIDDLEFIELD, OHIO, October 24, 2017 ◆◆◆◆ Middlefield Banc Corp. (NASDAQ: MBCN) today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

2017 Nine Month Financial Highlights (on a year-over-year basis unless noted):


    Net income increased 48.6% to $7.1 million


    Earnings per diluted share increased 3.0% to $2.37 per share, which includes a 44.0% increase in the average number of diluted shares outstanding


    Total loans increased 49.8% to $878.5 million

    Net interest income improved 44.6% to $27.5 million


    Tier 1 leverage ratio remains strong at 10.06%

“The continued strength in our operating and financial results are due to the successful integration of the Liberty Bank N.A. merger, organic loan growth of 16.1%, and the continued focus on increasing profitability by controlling costs, managing risk, and diversifying our revenues,” stated Thomas G. Caldwell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am pleased we have been able to grow our margin throughout the year by proactively managing our cost of funds and growing our yield, despite rising rates and a highly competitive banking environment. Middlefield’s community-oriented banking values and customer-centric approach is helping differentiate us within our markets. As a result, our pipeline of new loans in both our Northeast and Central Ohio markets remains robust, and we are excited about Middlefield’s long-term growth opportunities within each of these markets.”
