SmartFinancial Reports Fourth Quarter Results
KNOXVILLE, TN - January 17, 2017 - SmartFinancial, Inc. ("SmartFinancial"; NASDAQ: SMBK), announced today net income of $1.6 million in its fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $1.2 million a year ago. In the first quarter of 2016, SmartFinancial completed the merger of Cornerstone Community Bank with and into SmartBank. This quarter completes the third full quarter's results of the merged bank.
Billy Carroll, President & CEO, stated: "We are extremely proud of the achievements of our associates during our first full year as a combined company. We had outstanding organic loan growth of over $85 million, increased demand deposits by over $33 million, and maintained a net interest margin of over 4.00 percent for the year. We generated over $4 million in non-interest income during the year thanks to increased revenues from the sale of mortgage and SBA loans and higher revenues from deposit account services. We are successfully capturing our post merger efficiency gains as demonstrated by two consecutive quarterly decreases in noninterest expense to average assets. As a result we have generated increases in both net income and return on assets the last two quarters and look forward to continuing the trend of quarterly improvements into 2017.”
SmartFinancial's Chairman, Miller Welborn, concluded: "The only thing more exciting than what we as a company have accomplished over the last year are the opportunities we have before us heading into 2017. We have added a veteran team of bankers in Bradley County, Tennessee to go along with our planned branch acquisition in that market and as part of our organic growth strategy we are opening a new branch in Panama City, Florida, and that is just to start the year. We will continue to execute our objectives of growing the company while maintaining a strong margin, rigorous underwriting standards, and increasing efficiency. Every day we strive to achieve our goals of being a great place to work, a great place to bank, and making our company a rewarding investment for our shareholders. "
