Middlefield Banc Corp. Reports 2019 First Half Financial Results

MIDDLEFIELD, OHIO, July 19, 2019 ◆◆◆◆ Middlefield Banc Corp. (NASDAQ: MBCN) today reported financial results for the 2019 first half and second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

2019 First Half Financial Highlights versus 2018 First Half (unless noted):



Net income increased 10.5% to $6.3 million



Earnings per diluted share increased 9.7% to $1.93 per share



Return on average equity increased 16 basis points to 9.58%



Return on average tangible common equity(1) was 11.02%, in line with the prior year



Book value per share was up 9.1% to $41.41 per share



Tangible book value(1) per share was up 11.0% to $36.07 per share



Total loans increased 5.8% to $998.2 million



Total interest income improved 13.2% to $27.2 million

“Our second quarter financial results demonstrate the strength of our financial model as earnings per diluted share increased 5.2% from the same period a year ago to a second quarter record of $1.01 per diluted share, while our year-to-date tangible book value increased 11.0% to a record $36.07 per share,” stated Thomas G. Caldwell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This is the first quarter in 12 quarters where our total loan portfolio contracted. While the local economies in our Central and Northeast Ohio markets remain stable, we believe businesses and consumers have become more cautious resulting in slower investments and a reduction in borrowings. We continue to focus on proactively managing risk, growing market share, and driving improvements in profitability and our second quarter and first half financial results reflect the continued successful execution of our profit focused strategic plan.”

“In addition, I am pleased with the progress we are making to diversify our income streams and grow noninterest income. Noninterest income increased 32.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared with the same period last year. We expect further improvements in noninterest income throughout the year as additional strategies are implemented.”
