PEMBROKE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / August 3, 2022 / For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, Lumbee Guaranty Bank ('Lumbee' or 'Bank'), reported net income of $1,236,000, or earnings per share of $0.37, compared to net income of $1,027,000, or earnings per share of $0.30, for the same period in 2021. For the six-month period ended as of the same date, Lumbee reported net income of $2.293 million in 2022, or earnings per share of $0.69, compared to net income of $2.089 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, or earnings per share of $0.62. The primary causes of the increase in net income compared to prior periods were an increase in deposit service charges on accounts and an increase in other non-interest income due to a Bank Enterprise Award (BEA) grant from the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund.

As of June 30, 2022, Lumbee reported assets of $481.9 million, an increase of 6.0% over assets of $454.6 million as of June 30, 2021. Loans decreased 8.0% to $180.1 million, compared to loans of $195.7 million reported June 30, 2021. Investments rose to $234.5 million from $205.1 million at the year-ago date, an increase of 14.3%. Deposits grew to $437.7 million at June 30, 2022, an increase of 8.5% from June 30, 2021 deposits of $403.5 million. Capital levels remained solid, as shareholders equity totaled $35.3 million, or 7.3% of assets at June 30, 2022, versus $43.8 million, or 9.6% of assets at the year-ago date.

Net interest income totaled $3.51 million in the second quarter of 2022, up 2.8% from $3.41 million in the year-ago quarter. The stability of the interest income was due to a decrease in Paycheck Protection Program fees in 2021 offset by an increase in interest on investments during the second quarter of 2022. Noninterest income was up 58.7% to $808 thousand in 2022's second quarter from $509 thousand in the year-ago quarter, due to increased deposit service charges and the BEA grant previously mentioned. Noninterest expense was $2.91 million in the second quarter of 2022, up 3.4% from $2.81 million in the year-ago quarter. The increased expenses were due to a combination of increased data processing costs and other expenses.

Nonperforming assets ('NPAs') at June 30, 2022, (including nonaccruing loans, loans more than 90 days past due and still accruing, and OREO) were $1.4 million, or 0.30% of total assets, which was down 66% from $4.2 million, or 0.93% of total assets, at June 30, 2021, and down 30% from $2.1 million, or 0.42% of total assets, at March 31, 2022. The allowance for loan losses was $2.0 million, or 1.09% of gross loans, at June 30, 2022, versus $2.3 million, or 1.17% of gross loans, at the year-ago date.

'Our Bank had strong financial results in the second quarter, with earnings exceeding projections again' said Kyle R. Chavis, Chief Executive Officer of Lumbee. 'We were able to grow our loan portfolio by $4.3 million during the quarter, and we continued to attract new deposit customers by focusing on providing value and excellent service. I am particularly proud that our bank was awarded and received a Bank Enterprise Award grant from the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund of the U.S. Treasury. This grant is recognition of the small business lending we have always done in the communities we serve.' Chavis continued, 'As interest rates rise and economic conditions change, we will continue to strive to meet the financial needs of the citizens of southeastern North Carolina and to demonstrate the value of doing business with a community bank.'
