Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $7.9 million, or 5.3% over the first nine months of 2018, and $1.77 per share, or 5.3%, over the same period in 2018.

Total assets were $844.9 million as of September 30, 2019, an increase of $65.2 million, or 8.4%. from $779.7 million as of September 30, 2018. Total loans increased $27.8 million, or 4.3% since September 30, 2018 to reach $671.5 million as of September 30, 2019. Total deposits grew $49.0 million, or 7.3%, during the comparison periods to reach $716.7 million as of September 30, 2019.

Interest income in 2018 was reduced by a one-time adjustment of $310 thousand that did not occur in 2019 and the increase in the volume of earning assets drove the increase for the comparison period. Interest expense was $4.1 million for nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to $2.5 million for the prior period, an increase of $1.7 million, or 67.5%. Increases in customer deposits balances and rates paid on those accounts contributed to the increase in expense.

Notable variances for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the prior year included an increase in gain on sale of loans of $558 thousand, an increase in salaries and wages of $765 thousand offset by a decrease in employee benefits of $508 thousand related to the termination of the company defined benefit pension plan in 2018, and an increase in equipment costs of $190.

The Company’s return on average assets was 1.31% and return on average equity was 15.64% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. These key financial metrics along with balance sheet growth and results of operations are within the range of our expectations for 2019.

We recently opened two full service branch locations in Jericho and Williston, Vermont. These locations are located in Chittenden County, Vermont’s most populous and economically vibrant region. The Williston location also houses our robust mortgage lending operation previously located in rented space in South Burlington, Vermont. Growth in Chittenden County is an important part of our organic growth strategy.

The Board of Directors also declared a cash dividend of $0.31 per share payable November 7, 2019 to shareholders of record as of October 28, 2019. As a reminder, a dividend reinvestment plan (DRIP) to facilitate further investments in your company is available. Information on the DRIP may be found at www.ublocal.com under Investor Relations.


Sincerely
