Huron Valley Bancorp, Inc. Reports Q3 Results for 2016
Milford, Michigan – Third quarter net income was $280,000 or $0.34 per share, compared to $231,000 or $0.28 per share for Q3 2015. Year-to-date net income for 2016 was $724,000 or $0.88 per share, compared with 2015's $734,000 or $0.89 per share. The slight decrease in year-to-date net income is the result of increased expenses related to the repayment of the SBLF Preferred Stock in January 2016 and ongoing interest expense associated with the new debt, and stock transaction-related expenses. In addition, net interest margin is down based on the prevailing lower interest rate market over the last 12 months, yet it still remains above 4.0%. The significant increase in return on average equity (ROAE) of 11.38% for the quarter, reflects lower capital in 2016 due to the repayment of the SBLF Preferred Stock.
