MINDEN BANCORP, INC. REPORTS RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

FOR THE YEAR AND 4TH QUARTER ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2011

 

MINDEN, LA. – February 15, 2012-Minden Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC BB: MDNB) today reported net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 of $535,000 or $0.22 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $497,000 or $0.20 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. The $38,000 or 7.6% increase reflects a $103,000 increase in net interest income and a $94,000 increase in non-interest income offset partially by increases of $138,000 in non-interest expense and $21,000 in the provision for income taxes.

 

The Company reported net income of $2.6 million or $1.05 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2011, an increase of $366,000 or 16.2% as compared to net income of $2.3 million or $0.91 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2010.

 

The per share amounts reflected herein reflect the completion on January 4, 2011 of the conversion of MBL Bank, the wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, from the mutual holding company form of organization to the stock holding company form of organization and the concurrent public stock offering.

 

Total assets increased $16.8 million or 6.8% to $264.6 million at December 31, 2011 compared to $247.8 million at December 31, 2010. The increase primarily reflected a $3.7 million increase in cash and cash equivalents, a $10.4 million or 16.6% increase in investment securities and a $4.3 million or 3.4% increase in net loans. The Company continued its efforts to expand its loan portfolio during 2011. Total deposits increased by $11.6 million or 5.5% to $223.7 million at December 31, 2011. The increase reflected normal growth partially offset by the transfer to the Company’s equity of deposits submitted to fund the purchase of shares in the offering.

 

Stockholders’ equity increased by $14.9 million or 61.9% to $39.0 million at December 31, 2011 as compared to $24.1 million at December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily due to the $12.9 million net increase as result of the receipt of proceeds from the sale of the shares of common stock of the Company issued in the second-step conversion combined with a $2.6 million increase due to profitable operations for the year ended December 31, 2011 and a $127,000 increase in accumulated other comprehensive income reflecting an increase in unrealized gains related to investment securities available for sale as a result of the increase in the market value thereof since December 31, 2010. This was partially offset by dividends paid of $467,000 and the purchase of shares for the Company’s Recognition and Retention Plan. Stockholders’ equity amounted to $16.13 per share at December 31, 2011.

 

 
 

Net interest income for the three months ended December 31, 2011 increased $103,000 or 5.6% to $2.0 million as compared to $1.9 million for the same period in 2010. Net interest income increased $590,000 or 8.3% to $7.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 as compared to $7.1 million for the same period in 2010. The increase in net interest income for the three months ended December 31, 2011 reflected a decrease in interest income of $3,000 combined with a $106,000 decrease in interest expense. The increase in net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2011 reflected an increase in interest income of $255,000 combined with an interest expense decrease of $335,000. Interest income variances reflect the continued growth of our loan and investment portfolios offset by the re-pricing downward of such portfolios as a result of the decline in interest rates and yields. Interest expense decreases are a reflection of the continued re-pricing downward of our deposit liabilities resulting from the decline in interest rates.

 

The provision for loan losses amounted to $280,000 and $370,000 for the three months and year ended December 31, 2011, respectively. At December 31, 2011, the Company’s total nonperforming assets and troubled debt restructurings amounted to $1.1 million or 0.4% of total assets as compared to $514,000 or 0.2% at December 31, 2010.

 

Total non-interest income increased from $206,000 and $795,000 for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010, respectively, to $300,000 and $1,180,000 for the comparable periods in 2011. The 2011 periods reflected modest increases in customer service fees as we continued to emphasize the development of relationship banking. The increase for the three months and year ended December 31, 2011 also reflects a net gain on sale of assets of $33,000 and $212,000, respectively. The Company sold $18.4 million of investment securities during the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

Non-interest expense increased from $1.0 million and $4.1 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010, respectively, to $1.2 million and $4.5 million for the comparable periods in 2011. The increases for the 2011 periods were due to increases in general, administrative and supervisory fees.
