Investment securities will at times depreciate to an unrealized loss position. The Company utilizes the following criteria to assess whether impairment is other than temporary. No one item by itself will necessarily signal that a security should be recognized as an other than temporary impairment.

 

1. The fair value of the security has significantly declined from book value.

 

2. A downgrade has occurred that lowered the credit rating to below investment grade (below Baa3 by Moody and BBB – by Standard and Poors.)

 

3. Dividends have been reduced or eliminated or scheduled interest payments have not been made.

 

4. The underwater security has longer than 10 years to maturity and the loss position had existed for more than 3 years.

 

5. Management does not possess both the intent and ability to hold the security for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in fair value.

If the impairment is judged to be other than temporary, the cost basis of the individual security shall be written down to fair value, thereby establishing a new cost basis. The new cost basis shall not be changed for subsequent recoveries in fair value. The amount of the write down shall be included in current earnings as a realized loss. The recovery in fair value, if any, shall be recognized in earnings when the security is sold. The table below is presented by category of security and length of time in a continuous loss position. The Company currently does not hold any securities with other than temporary impairment.

Unrealized losses on securities have not been recognized into income because the issuers’ bonds are of high credit quality and the Company has the intent and ability to hold the securities for the foreseeable future. Additionally, the decline in value is primarily due to changes in interest rates since the securities were purchased. The fair value is expected to recover as the bonds approach the maturity date.

The Bank uses a nine tier risk rating system to grade its loans. The grade of a loan may change during the life of the loan.

The risk ratings are described as follows.

 

  1. Zero (0) Unclassified. Any loan which has not been assigned a classification.

 

  2. One (1) Excellent. Credit to premier customers having the highest credit rating based on an extremely strong financial condition, which compares favorably with industry standards (upper quartile of Risk Management Association ratios). Financial statements indicate a sound earnings and financial ratio trend for several years with satisfactory profit margins and excellent liquidity exhibited. Prime credits may also be borrowers with loans fully secured by highly liquid collateral such as traded stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit, savings account, etc. No credit or collateral exceptions exist and the loan adheres to the Bank’s loan policy in every respect. Financing alternatives would be readily available and would qualify for unsecured credit. This grade is summarized by high liquidity, minimum risk, strong ratios, and low handling costs.

 

  3. Two (2) Good. Desirable loans of somewhat less stature than Grade 1, but with strong financial statements. Loan supported by financial statements containing strong balance sheets, generally with a leverage position less than 1.50, and a history of profitability. Probability of serious financial deterioration is unlikely. Possessing a sound repayment source (and a secondary source), which would allow repayment in a reasonable period of time. Individual loans backed by liquid personal assets, established history and unquestionable character.

 

  4. Three (3) Satisfactory. Satisfactory loans of average or slightly above average risk – having some deficiency or vulnerability to changing economic conditions, but still fully collectible. Projects should normally demonstrate acceptable debt service coverage. Generally, customers should have a leverage position less than 2.00. May be some weakness but with offsetting features of other support readily available. Loans that are meeting the terms of repayment.

Loans may be graded 3 when there is no recent information on which to base a current risk evaluation and the following conditions apply:

At inception, the loan was properly underwritten and did not possess an unwarranted level of credit risk:

 

  a. At inception, the loan was secured with collateral possessing a loan value adequate to protect the Bank from loss;

 

  b. The loan exhibited two or more years of satisfactory repayment with a reasonable reduction of the principal balance;

 

  c. During the period that the loan has been outstanding, there has been no evidence of any credit weakness. Some examples of weakness include slow payment, lack of cooperation by the borrower, breach of loan covenants, or the business is in an industry which is known to be experiencing problems. If any of the credit weaknesses is observed, a lower risk grade is warranted.

 

  5.

Four (4) Satisfactory / Monitored. A “4” (Satisfactory/Monitored) risk grade may be established for a loan considered satisfactory but which is of average credit risk due to financial weakness or

 

12


Table of Contents
ITEM 1 NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)

 

NOTE 4 LOANS (Continued)

 

  uncertainty. The loans warrant a higher than average level of monitoring to ensure that weaknesses do not advance. The level of risk in Satisfactory/Monitored classification is considered acceptable and within normal underwriting guidelines, so long as the loan is given management supervision.

 

  6. Five (5) Special Mention. Loans that possess some credit deficiency or potential weakness which deserves close attention, but which do not yet warrant substandard classification. Such loans pose unwarranted financial risk that, if not corrected, could weaken the loan and increase risk in the future. The key distinctions of a 5 (Special Mention) classification are that (1) it is indicative of an unwarranted level of risk, and (2) weaknesses are considered “potential”, versus “defined”, impairments to the primary source of loan repayment and collateral.

 

  7. Six (6) Substandard. One or more of the following characteristics may be exhibited in loans classified substandard:

 

  a. Loans, which possess a defined credit weakness and the likelihood that a loan will be paid from the primary source, are uncertain. Financial deterioration is underway and very close attention is warranted to ensure that the loan is collected without loss.

 

  b. Loans are inadequately protected by the current net worth and paying capacity of the borrower.

 

  c. The primary source of repayment is weakened, and the Bank is forced to rely on a secondary source of repayment such as collateral liquidation or guarantees.

 

  d. Loans are characterized by the distinct possibility that the Bank will sustain some loss if deficiencies are not corrected.

 

  e. Unusual courses of action are needed to maintain a high probability of repayment.

 

  f. The borrower is not generating enough cash flow to repay loan principal; however, continues to make interest payments.

 

  g. The lender is forced into a subordinate position or unsecured collateral position due to flaws in documentation.

 

  h. Loans have been restructured so that payment schedules, terms and collateral represent concessions to the borrower when compared to the normal loan terms.

 

  i. The lender is seriously contemplating foreclosure or legal action due to the apparent deterioration in the loan.

 

  j. There is significant deterioration in the market conditions and the borrower is highly vulnerable to these conditions.

 

  8. Seven (7) Doubtful. One or more of the following characteristics may be exhibited in loans classified Doubtful:

 

  a. Loans have all of the weaknesses of those classified as Substandard. Additionally, however, these weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full based on existing conditions improbable.

 

  b. The primary source of repayment is gone, and there is considerable doubt as to the quality of the secondary source of repayment.

 

  c. The possibility of loss is high, but, because of certain important pending factors which may strengthen the loan, loss classification is deferred until its exact status is known. A Doubtful classification is established deferring the realization of the loss.

 

  9. Eight (8) Loss. Loans are considered uncollectable and of such little value that continuing to carry them as assets on the institution’s financial statements is not feasible. Loans will be classified Loss when it is neither practical nor desirable to defer writing off or reserving all or a portion of a basically worthless asset, even though partial recovery may be possible at some time in the future.

NOTE 4 LOANS (Continued)

 

For the majority of the Bank’s impaired loans, the Bank will apply the observable market price methodology. However, the Bank may also utilize a measurement incorporating the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective rate of interest. To determine observable market price, collateral asset values securing an impaired loan are periodically evaluated. Maximum time for re-evaluation is every 12 months for chattels and titled vehicles and every two years for real estate. In this process, third party evaluations are obtained and heavily relied upon. Until such time that updated appraisals are received, the Bank may discount the collateral value used.

The Bank uses the following guidelines as stated in policy to determine when to realize a charge-off, whether a partial or full loan balance. A charge-off in whole or in part is realized when unsecured consumer loans, credit card credits and overdraft lines of credit reach 90 days delinquency. At 120 days delinquent, secured consumer loans are charged down to the value of the collateral, if repossession of the collateral is assured and/or in the process of repossession. Consumer mortgage loan deficiencies are charged down upon the sale of the collateral or sooner upon the recognition of collateral deficiency. Commercial and agricultural credits are charged down at 120 days delinquency, unless an established and approved work-out plan is in place or litigation of the credit will likely result in recovery of the loan balance. Upon notification of bankruptcy, unsecured debt is charged off. Additional charge-off may be realized as further unsecured positions are recognized.

The following table presents loans individually evaluated for impairment by class of loans for three months ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013.

The AULC is reported within other liabilities on the balance sheet while the ALLL is netted within the loans, net asset line. The ACL presented above represents the full amount of reserves available to absorb possible credit losses.

NOTE 5 FAIR VALUE OF INSTRUMENTS

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

Fair values of financial instruments are management’s estimate of the values at which the instruments could be exchanged in a transaction between willing parties. These estimates are subjective and may vary significantly from amounts that would be realized in actual transactions. In addition, other significant assets are not considered financial assets including deferred tax assets, premises, equipment and intangibles. Further, the tax ramifications related to the realization of the unrealized gains and losses can have a significant effect on the fair value estimates and have not been considered in any of the estimates.

The following assumptions and methods were used in estimating the fair value for financial instruments.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, cash equivalents and federal funds sold approximate their fair values. Also included in this line item are the carrying amounts of interest-bearing deposits maturing within ninety days which approximate their fair values. Fair values of other interest-bearing deposits are estimated using discounted cash flow analyses based on current rates for similar types of deposits.

Securities

Fair values for securities, excluding Federal Home Loan Bank stock, are based on quoted market price, where available. If quoted market prices are not available, fair values are based on quoted market prices of comparable instruments.

Other Securities – Available-for-sale

The carrying value of Federal Home Loan Bank stock, listed as “other securities”, approximates fair value based on the redemption provisions of the Federal Home Loan Bank.

Loans, net

For those variable-rate loans that re-price frequently, and with no significant change in credit risk, fair values are based on carrying values. The fair values of the fixed rate and all other loans are estimated using discounted cash flow analysis, using interest rates currently being offered for loans with similar terms to borrowers with similar credit quality.

Deposits - Interest Bearing, Non-interest Bearing and Time

The fair values disclosed for deposits with no defined maturities are equal to their carrying amounts, which represent the amount payable on demand. The carrying amounts for variable-rate, fixed term money market accounts and certificates of deposit approximate their fair value at the reporting date. Fair value for fixed-rate certificates of deposit are estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis that applies interest rates currently being offered on certificates to a schedule of aggregated expected monthly maturities on time deposits.

Short-Term Borrowings

The carrying value of short-term borrowings approximates fair values.

FHLB Advances

Fair values of FHLB advances are estimated using discounted cash flow analysis based on the Company’s current incremental borrowing rates for similar types or borrowing arrangements.

Accrued Interest Receivable and Payable

The carrying amounts of accrued interest approximate their fair values.

NOTE 5 FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (Continued)

 

Dividends Payable

The carrying amounts of dividends payable approximate their fair values and are generally paid within forty days of declaration.

Off Balance Sheet Financial Instruments

Fair values for off-balance sheet, credit related financial instruments are based on fees currently charged to enter into similar agreements, taking into account the remaining terms of the agreements and the counter-parties’ credit standing.

The estimated fair values, and related carrying or notional amounts, for on and off-balance sheet financial instruments as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 are reflected below.

Fair Value Measurements

In general, fair values determined by Level 1 inputs use quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access.

Available-for-sale securities, when quoted prices are available in an active market, securities are valued using the quoted price and are classified as Level 1.

Fair values determined by Level 2 inputs use other inputs that are observable, either directly or indirectly. These Level 2 inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and other inputs such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals.

Available-for-sale securities classified as Level 2 are valued using the prices obtained from an independent pricing service. The prices are not adjusted. Securities of obligations of state and political subdivisions are valued using a type of matrix, or grid, pricing in which securities are benchmarked against the treasury rate based on credit rating. Substantially all assumptions used by the independent pricing service are observable in the marketplace, can be derived from observable data, or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the market place.

Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs, including inputs that are available in situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the related asset or liability. The Bank holds some local municipals that the Bank evaluates based on the credit strength of the underlying project such as hospital or retirement housing. The fair value is determined by valuing similar credit payment streams at similar rates.

In instances where inputs used to measure fair value fall into different levels in the above fair value hierarchy, fair value measurements in their entirety are categorized based on the lowest level input that is significant to the valuation. The Company’s assessment of the significance of particular inputs to these fair value measurements requires judgment and considers factors specific to each asset.

Most of the Company’s available for sale securities, including any bonds issued by local municipalities, have CUSIP numbers or have similar characteristics of those in the municipal markets, making them marketable and comparable as Level 2.

The Company also has assets that, under certain conditions, are subject to measurement at fair value on a non-recurring basis. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, such assets consist primarily of impaired loans. Impaired loans categorized as Level 3 assets consist of non-homogeneous loans that are considered impaired. The Company estimates the fair value of the loans based on the present value of expected future cash flows using management’s best estimate of key assumptions. These assumptions include future payment ability, timing of payment streams, and estimated realizable values of available collateral (typically based on outside appraisals.)

At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, impaired loans categorized as Level 3 were $1.4 and $1.9 million, respectively. The specific allocation for impaired loans was $256 and $516 thousand as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, which are accounted for in the allowance for loan losses (see Note 4).

Other real estate is reported at either the lower of the fair value of the real estate minus the estimated costs to sell the asset or the cost of the asset. The determination of fair value of the real estate relies primarily on appraisals from third parties. If the fair value of the real estate, minus the estimated costs to sell the asset, is less than the asset’s cost, the deficiency is recognized as a valuation allowance against the asset through a charge to expense. The valuation allowance is therefore increased or decreased, through charges or credits to expense, for changes in the asset’s fair value or estimated selling costs.

ITEM 2 MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

NATURE OF ACTIVITIES (Continued)

 

The U.S. economy continues to strengthen, but at a slow pace. After a sluggish first quarter in 2014, the economy has improved throughout the second and in the third quarter. Inclement weather was believed to have contributed to the slowness of the first quarter.

The Bank’s primary service area, Northwest Ohio and Northeast Indiana, continue to exhibit a downward trend in unemployment rates at both a local and national level. The agricultural industry is faced with lower prices and possibly lower yields. Rain was scattered in our market area during the growing season and harvest is being hampered by heavier fall rains. Strong financial performance in the previous years will aid in any possible shortfalls this year. The automotive sector showed improvement with car dealers in our marketing area presenting more profitable numbers than in prior years. Overall, business profits are improving. Loan growth occurred during the fourth quarter of 2013 and has continued through third quarter 2014 and the Bank finally surpassed the loan balances of 2012. Overall, net loan growth is $31.8 million or 5.6% over since the year ended December 31, 2013. New 1-4 family residential and construction remains weak and refinancing activity are also below the level of same period 2013.

The Bank acquired its 21st office during the fourth quarter of 2013. The office is located in Custar, Ohio, and was a natural extension of the Bank’s market area. The office provides the full range of services discussed below. Growth for the remainder of 2014 is expected in Sylvania, Ohio, where the Bank recently opened its 22nd full-service branch office.

The Farmers & Merchants State Bank engages in general commercial banking and savings business including commercial, agricultural and residential mortgage, consumer and credit card lending activities. Because the Bank’s offices are located in Northwest Ohio and Northeast Indiana, a substantial amount of the loan portfolio is comprised of loans made to customers in the farming industry for such items as farm land, farm equipment, livestock and operating loans for seed, fertilizer, and feed. Other types of lending activities include loans for home improvements, and loans for the purchase of autos, trucks, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, and other consumer goods.

The Bank also provides checking account services, as well as savings and time deposit services such as certificates of deposits. In addition ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) are provided at most branch locations along with other independent locations such as major employers and hospitals in the market area. The Bank has custodial services for IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts) and HSAs (Health Savings Accounts). The Bank provides on-line banking access for consumer and business customers. For consumers, this includes bill-pay, on-line statement opportunities and mobile banking. For business customers, it provides the option of electronic transaction origination such as wire and ACH (Automated Clearing House) file transmittal. In addition, the Bank offers remote deposit capture or electronic deposit processing and merchant credit card services. Mobile banking was added in 2012 and has been widely accepted and used by consumers. An upgrade to the Bank’s bill pay program along with additional electronic services being offered occurred during third quarter of 2014. Changes in billing also took place during the third quarter. The Bank is also restructuring a portion of its checking portfolio with the introduction of two new offerings, “Secure” and “Pure” checking through the remainder of 2014. Some of the Bank’s older checking products will be discontinued. Secure checking incorporates identity theft protection and monitoring, Pure checking enables the depositor to offset fees by utilizing on-line statements and either of conducting debit card activity or maintaining an overall deposit relationship.

The Bank has established underwriting policies and procedures which facilitate operating in a safe and sound manner in accordance with supervisory and regulatory guidance. Within this sphere of safety and soundness, the Bank’s practice has been not to promote innovative, unproven credit products which will not be in the best interest of the Bank or its customers. The Bank does offer a hybrid mortgage loan. Hybrid loans are loans that start out as a fixed rate mortgage but after a set number of years automatically adjust to an adjustable rate mortgage. The Bank offers a three year fixed rate mortgage after which the interest rate will adjust annually. The majority of the Bank’s adjustable rate mortgages are of this type. In order to offer longer term fixed rate mortgages, the Bank does participate in the Freddie Mac, Farmer Mac and Small Business Lending programs. The Bank also normally retains the servicing rights on these partially or 100% sold loans. In order for the customer to participate in these programs they must meet the requirements established by these agencies. In addition, the Bank does sell some of its longer term fixed rate agricultural mortgages into the secondary market with the aid of a broker.

NATURE OF ACTIVITIES (Continued)

 

The Bank does not have a program to fund sub-prime loans. Sub-prime loans are characterized as a lending program or strategy that targets borrowers who pose a significantly higher risk of default than traditional retail banking customers.

Following are the characteristics and underwriting criteria for each major type of loan the Bank offers:

Commercial Real Estate – Construction, purchase, and refinance of business purpose real estate. Risks include loan amount in relation to construction delays and overruns, vacancies, collateral value subject to market value fluctuations, interest rate, market demands, borrower’s ability to repay in a timely fashion, and others before granting loan approval. The Bank does employ stress testing on higher balance loans to mitigate risk by ensuring the customer’s ability to repay in a changing rate environment.

Agricultural Real Estate – Purchase of farm real estate or for permanent improvements to the farm real estate. Cash flow from the farm operation is the repayment source and is therefore subject to the financial success of the farm operation.

Consumer Real Estate – Purchase, refinance, or equity financing of one to four family owner occupied dwelling. Success in repayment is subject to borrower’s income, debt level, character in fulfilling payment obligations, employment, and others.

Commercial and Industrial – Loans to proprietorships, partnerships, or corporations to provide temporary working capital and seasonal loans as well as long term loans for capital asset acquisition. Risks include adequacy of cash flow, reasonableness of profit projections, financial leverage, economic trends, management ability, and others.

The Bank does employ stress testing on higher balance loans to mitigate risk by ensuring the customer’s ability to repay in a changing rate environment before granting loan approval.

Agricultural – Loans for the production and housing of crops, fruits, vegetables, and livestock or to fund the purchase or re-finance of capital assets such as machinery and equipment and livestock. The production of crops and livestock is especially vulnerable to commodity prices and weather. The vulnerability to commodity prices is offset by the farmer’s ability to hedge their position by the use of the future contracts. The risk related to weather is often mitigated by requiring federal crop insurance.

Consumer – Funding for individual and family purposes. Success in repayment is subject to borrower’s income, debt level, character in fulfilling payment obligations, employment, and others.

Industrial Development Bonds – Funds for public improvements in the Bank’s service area. Repayment ability is based on the continuance of the taxation revenue as the source of repayment.

All loan requests are reviewed as to credit worthiness and are subject to the Bank’s underwriting guidelines as to secured versus unsecured credit. Secured loans are in turn subject to loan to value (LTV) requirements based on collateral types as set forth in the Bank’s Loan Policy. In addition, credit scores of principal borrowers are reviewed and an approved exception from an additional officer is required should a credit score not meet the Bank’s Loan Policy guidelines.

Consumer Loans:

 

    Maximum loan to value (LTV) for cars, trucks and light trucks vary from 90% to 110% depending on whether direct or indirect.

 

    Loans above 100% are generally due to additional charges for extended warranties and/or insurance coverage periods of wage or death.

 

    Boats, campers, motorcycles, RV’s and Motor Coaches range from 80%-90% based on age of vehicle.

 

    1st or 2nd mortgages on 1-4 family homes range from 75%-90% with “in-house” first real estate mortgages requiring private mortgage insurance on those exceeding 80% LTV.

2014 IN REVIEW Third Quarter Performance

Loan growth continued in the third quarter of 2014 and the loan portfolio attained a new high of over $600 million. This loan growth was preceded by a strong fourth quarter 2013 which included an office acquisition and increased borrowings in the commercial and agricultural real estate portfolios. This growth is important to the Company as a step in the right direction to improve its net interest income and margin.

The year of consistent loan growth spurred improvement in interest income. Interest income from loans was higher by $864 thousand when comparing third quarter 2014 to 2013. Given that the strategy was to fund loan growth from the sales of securities, interest income from the securities portfolio was down $225 thousand from the same time periods. Overall, improvement in total interest income was $627 thousand for the third quarter ending September 30, 2014 compared to third quarter ending September 30, 2013.

Expanding on the positive improvement of interest income was the decrease in cost of funds during the third quarter. Third quarter 2014 was lower by $234 thousand than third quarter 2013. The Company funded its assets with deposits, federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase exclusively. Third quarter 2013 in comparison also utilized borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank. A significant decrease in time deposit balances also contributed to the third quarter 2014 lower cost of funds.

Combining the improvements in both interest income and interest expense, net interest income was up $861 thousand in 2014 as compared to 2013 for the third quarter. The benefit of the Company’s strategy of repositioning the balance sheet and shrinking holdings was very evident in the results of the comparison of third quarter activity on net interest income.

Total allowance provision for loan losses was $21 thousand lower for the third quarter 2014 as compared to same quarter 2013. Loan growth warranted provision expense be taken in the third quarter 2014 as net charge-offs, excluding overdraft activity, were in a net recovery position. Charge-offs due to overdraft loans was $82 thousand with recoveries of $27 thousand for three months ended September 30, 2014. This compared to a net charge-off provision of $498 thousand, again excluding overdraft activity, for third quarter 2013. $92 thousand of charge-offs and $20 thousand of recoveries related to overdraft products in the same three months of 2013. In addition, overall past dues remain at historically low levels.

Adding to the improvement in net interest income was an increase in noninterest income. Gains on sales in the agricultural portfolio increased slightly in comparison to same quarter previous year, while gains on sales from the 1-4 family portfolio was down slightly. Net gain on sales of loans was therefore up $29 thousand in third quarter comparison. In fact, in comparing third quarter 2014 to third quarter 2013, 2014 outperformed 2013 in all areas of noninterest income by a total of $204 thousand. Customer service fees were positively impacted by the structural changes made to the Bank’s bill pay program. Additional services were added and the new bundle was marketed as FMeXpress. Fees were collected during each of the three months of third quarter 2014. Fees applied to both the retail and business customers of the Bank. Service charges were impacted by just one month of revenue from “Secure” and “Pure” checking in the third quarter 2014 and represented only our first conversion and consolidation of checking products. Two more waves will take place in the fourth quarter.

All rates remain low and are expected to remain low throughout 2014. In addition, economists’ predictions have extended the duration of the low rate market to exist until fourth quarter 2015. This has enabled the Company to continue to sell investment securities and recognize a gain without compromising the yield. For third quarter 2013, the recognized gain was $134 thousand. For third quarter 2014 it was $192 thousand. Most of the securities sold were agencies maturing in a short time period. Additional sales throughout 2014 may be executed as needed to fund loan growth, which management expects to continue. The market value of the security portfolio has leveled off as evidenced by the other comprehensive loss reported on the statement of income and comprehensive income for third quarter ended September 30, 2013 and 2014 on sales of securities. Additional opportunity to sell investment securities for a gain may be limited for the remainder of 2014.

2014 IN REVIEW Third Quarter Performance (Continued)

 

For the third quarter ended September 30th, noninterest expenses were $466 thousand higher in 2014 than for 2013. An additional office was opened in Sylvania impacting salaries and furniture and equipment. Salaries and wages were also higher by $178 thousand in 2014 than 2013 due to the increase in the incentive accrual. A stronger performance in the ROA (Return On Assets) financial measure, on which the largest portion of the incentive is based, correlated to a higher provision. Health care costs continue to increase on a per employee basis as the number of full-time equivalent employees was 253 at quarter-end 2014, up from 249 at the same time for 2013. An area of disappointment in the quarter comparison in noninterest expense was net loss on sale of other assets owned, which was higher by $74 thousand from third quarter 2013. This was due to sales and write downs on Other Real Estate Owned, “OREO”.

Overall, profitability in the third quarter of 2014 was up significantly as compared to the same quarter last year. In comparisons, net income is up 20% or $409 thousand. Net interest income was up 13% over the same period in 2013. The Company has done an exceptional job of growing loans while keeping past dues low. The Company remains strong, stable, and well capitalized and has the capacity to continue seeking good loans to improve profitability. The Company continues to look for new opportunities to generate and protect revenue and provide additional channels through which to serve our customers and maintain our high level of customer satisfaction.

The Bank has been attentive to the significant final mortgage rules and additional guidance issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to implement the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act provisions. Effective in January 2014, these rules are a game-changer which impacts the entire mortgage lending industry. The Bank continues to work toward fulfillment of applicable requirements for these new mortgage rules, as it gains further understanding of the complexities and inter-related nature of these rules while making strategic decisions, and addressing key considerations necessary for implementation of each rule. The Company is also preparing for the implementation of Basel III capital rules which will begin phase in for the Company on January 1, 2015. These rules may impact the ability of some financial institutions to pay dividends, though the Company believes itself to be able to maintain its strong capital position and not be limited in that regard. Larger institutions, which the rule was designed for, were required to begin reporting as of January 1, 2014.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICY AND ESTIMATES

The Company’s consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and the Company follows general practices within the financial services industry in which it operates. At times the application of these principles requires management to make assumptions, estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes.

These assumptions, estimates and judgments are based on information available as of the date of the financial statements. As this information changes, the financial statements could reflect different assumptions, estimates and judgments. Certain policies inherently have a greater reliance on assumptions, estimates and judgments and as such have a greater possibility of producing results that could be materially different than originally reported. Examples of critical assumptions, estimates and judgments are when assets and liabilities are required to be recorded at fair value, when a decline in the value of an asset not required to be recorded at fair value warrants an impairment write-down or valuation reserve to be established, or when an asset or liability must be recorded contingent upon a future event.

These policies, along with the disclosures presented in the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements and in the management discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of operations, provide information on how significant assets and liabilities are valued and how those values are determined for the financial statements. Based on the valuation techniques used and the sensitivity of financial statement amounts to assumptions, estimates, and judgments underlying those amounts, management has identified the determination of the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) and the valuation of its Mortgage Servicing Rights and OREO as the accounting areas that require the most subjective or complex judgments, and as such could be the most subject to revision as new information becomes available.

Assets acquired through, or in lieu of, loan foreclosure are held for sale and are initially recorded at fair value at the date of foreclosure. Subsequent to foreclosure, valuations are periodically performed by management and the assets are carried at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICY AND ESTIMATES (Continued)

 

Foreclosed real estate for sale is carried at the lower of fair value minus estimated costs to sell, or cost. Costs of holding foreclosed real estate are charged to expense in the current period, except for significant property improvements, which are capitalized. Valuations are periodically performed by management and a write-down is recorded by a charge to non-interest expense if the carrying value exceeds the fair value minus estimated costs to sell. Foreclosed real estate is classified as OREO. The net income from operations of foreclosed real estate held for sale is reported in non-interest income. At September 30, 2014, holdings were $1.3 million and were $2.1 million as of December 31, 2013 and $2.4 million as of September 30, 2013.

The ALLL represents management’s estimate of probable credit losses inherent in the Bank’s loan portfolio, unfunded loan commitments, and letters of credit at the report date. The ALLL methodology is regularly reviewed for its appropriateness and is approved annually by the Board of Directors. This written methodology is consistent with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles which provides for a consistently applied analysis.

The Bank’s methodology provides an estimate of the probable credit losses either by calculating a specific loss per credit or by applying a composite of historical factors over a relevant period of time with current internal and external factors which may affect credit collectability. Such factors which may influence estimated losses are the conditions of the local and national economy, local unemployment trends, abilities of lending staff, valuation trends of fixed assets, and trends in credit delinquency, classified credits, and credit losses.

Inherent in most estimates is imprecision. The Bank’s ALLL provides a margin for imprecision with an unallocated portion.

Bank regulatory agencies and external auditors periodically review the Bank’s methodology and adequacy of the ALLL. Any required changes in the ALLL or loan charge-offs by these agencies or auditors may have a material effect on the ALLL.

The Company is required to estimate the value of its Mortgage Servicing Rights. The Company recognizes as separate assets rights to service fixed rate single-family mortgage loans that it has sold without recourse but services for others for a fee. Mortgage servicing assets are initially recorded at cost, based upon pricing multiples as determined by the purchaser, when the loans are sold. Mortgage servicing assets are carried at the lower of the initial carrying value, adjusted for amortization, or estimated fair value. Amortization is determined in proportion to and over the period of estimated net servicing income using the level yield method. For purposes of determining impairment, the mortgage servicing assets are stratified into like groups based on loan type, term, new versus seasoned and interest rate. The valuation is completed by an independent third party.

The expected and actual rates of mortgage loan prepayments are the most significant factors driving the potential for the impairment of the value of mortgage servicing assets. Increases in mortgage loan prepayments reduce estimated future net servicing cash flows because the life of the underlying loan is reduced.

The Company’s mortgage servicing rights relating to loans serviced for others represent an asset of the company. This asset is initially capitalized and included in other assets on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. The mortgage servicing rights are then amortized against noninterest income in proportion to, and over the period of the estimated future net servicing income of the underlying mortgage servicing rights. There are a number of factors, however, that can effect the ultimate value of the mortgage servicing rights to the Company, including the estimated prepayment speed of the loan and the discount rate used to present value the servicing right. For example, if the mortgage loan is prepaid, the Company will receive fewer servicing fees, meaning that the present value of the mortgage servicing rights is less than the carrying value of those rights on the Company’s balance sheet. Therefore, in an attempt to reflect an accurate expected value to the Company of the mortgage servicing rights, the Company receives a valuation of its mortgage servicing rights from an independent third party. The independent third party’s valuation of the mortgage servicing rights is based on relevant characteristics of the Company’s loan servicing portfolio, such as loan terms, interest rates and recent national prepayment experience, as well as current national market interest rate levels, market forecasts and other economic conditions. Management, with the advice from its third party valuation firm, reviewed the assumptions related to prepayment speeds, discount rates, and capitalized mortgage servicing income on a quarterly basis. Changes are reflected in the following quarter’s analysis related to the mortgage servicing asset. In addition, based upon the independent third party’s valuation of the Company’s mortgage servicing rights, management then establishes a valuation allowance by each strata, if necessary, to

quantify the likely impairment of the value of the mortgage servicing rights to the Company. The estimates of prepayment speeds and discount rates are inherently uncertain, and different estimates could have a material impact on the Company’s net income and results of operations. The valuation allowance is evaluated and adjusted quarterly by management to reflect changes in the fair value of the underlying mortgage servicing rights based on market conditions. The accuracy of these estimates and assumptions by management and its third party valuation specialist can be directly tied back to the fact that management has only been required to record minor valuation allowances through its income statement over time based upon the valuation of each stratum of servicing rights. For more information regarding the estimates and calculations used to establish the ALLL and the value of Mortgage Servicing Rights, please see Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements provided herewith.

MATERIAL CHANGES IN FINANCIAL CONDITION, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

In comparing the balance sheet of September 30, 2014 to that of December 31, 2013, the cash equivalent liquidity of the Bank has decreased by $2 million; however it is still considered strong. The stability in liquidity was facilitated by the office acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2013 of which deposits account for $29.5 million and loans only $11.4 million. During the frist nine months of 2014, net loans have increased $31.8 million even with a $10 million decrease stemming from the repayment on a line of credit by a single borrowing relationship which was expected and which happens each year at this time. The fact that loan levels increased in light of the anticipated yearly reduction is a positive factor towards future improvement to profitability.

The Company’s decrease in total assets of $40.7 million was due to lower balances within the securities portfolio of $71.4 million and FHLB borrowings of $4.5 million. This was partially offset by the increase in loans mentioned above. The Company has an unsecured borrowing capacity of $105.5 million through correspondent banks and over $75.4 million of unpledged securities which may be sold or used as collateral. With the exception of stock, all of the Bank’s security portfolio is categorized as available for sale and as such is recorded at market value.

A large fluctuation in the market value of the securities occurred during the second quarter of 2013 causing the unrealized gain position to decrease significantly. Management recognized the change in the market early and was quick to capture a portion of the gain before it fluctuated to an unrealized loss position. Currently the security portfolio is in a net unrealized loss position of $26 thousand. Management feels confident that liquidity needs can easily be funded from an orderly runoff of the investment portfolio, along with other sources of funding.

As previously stated, net loans show an increase for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, which reverses the trend in declining loan balances which the Bank had experienced all throughout fiscal year 2012 and up through the third quarter 2013. Growth occurred across the board on all loan portfolios as compared to September 30, 2013. Loan sales into the secondary market have also impacted the consumer and agricultural real estate portfolios though on a much smaller basis than in 2013. Year to date, the Bank has sold approximately $30.4 million of loans into the secondary market, while originating only $26.3 million of the loans during the same nine-month period as demonstrated in the cash flow statement for the period. The majority of the activity stemmed from within the 1-4 family portfolio. The trend of decreasing loan balances is reversed, as the following chart shows increases in 2013 and a strong upswing in 2014. The Bank is also starting to generate a positive trend of increasing loan balances after our third quarter activity when comparing to yearend. The Bank’s pipeline of loans remains strong, driven by opportunities for new relationships as business activity begins to reflect a more optimistic opinion of the economy and large financial institutions downsize certain portfolios. The Bank has also been able to further deepen our relationships and increase the dealings with some of our newer customers.

On a year to year comparison basis, the Commercial real estate portfolio shows the largest increase of $42.0 million in balance as of September 30, 2014 compared to September 30, 2013. Agricultural real estate shows an increase of $11.1 million. Consumer real estate showed the largest improvement in the consumer portfolios of $18.4 million. Loans increased $85.3 million as compared to the same period last year and increased $117.3 million as compared to September 30, 2012.

Overall, total assets of the Company decreased $40.7 million from December 31, 2013 to September 30, 2014.

Deposits decreased $31.6 million from yearend 2013 which correlated to the maturing and leaving of time deposits. Time deposits decreased $31.1 million during the first nine months of 2014. The Bank budgeted for this occurrence, choosing to fund loan growth with core deposit growth and investment security runoff and sales. The time deposit shrinkage helped to reduce the Bank’s cost of funds, as these are typically the most expensive type of deposit account for the Bank.

The Bank paid off $4.5 million in FHLB advances which had matured during 2014. This too has lowered the cost of funds. Securities sold under agreement to repurchase decreased $14.5 million during the first nine months of 2014 as compared to yearend.

Capital increased $3.7 million during the first nine months of 2014, as earnings exceeded dividend declarations. Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) decreased $32 thousand which encompassed the shift of $494 thousand from unrealized gain to realized gain with the sale of securities. Dividends paid year-to-date were $106 thousand higher than the same period last year with a one cent increase per share per quarter being the reason.

The Company continues to be well-capitalized in accordance with Federal regulatory capital requirements as the capital ratios below show:

MATERIAL CHANGES IN RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Comparison of Results of Operation for nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013.

Improvement in net interest income of $2.3 million occurred for the first three quarters 2014 over the same period 2013, with improvement seen in both parts of the equation, with interest income up $1.6 million over September 30, 2013 and interest expense down $737 thousand. The higher balance in interest and fees from loans was generated from the increase loan balances of fourth quarter 2013 and each of the first three quarter 2014. The reverse was seen in the noninterest arena where noninterest income was lower by $810 thousand in the first nine months of 2014 as compared to the first nine months of 2013 and noninterest expense was $688 thousand higher. Noninterest income for 2014 was impacted in all areas driven primarily by (i) a decrease in the gain on sale of securities of $421 thousand, (ii) a $481 thousand decrease on gain of sale of loans and (iii) lower levels of collection of other service charge and fees by $57 thousand.

Net interest income after the provision for loan loss expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was up $1.8 million from the nine month period ended September 30, 2013. The provision for loan loss expense was approximately $572 thousand higher than same period 2013. The provision was needed for loan growth and replacement for the net charge-offs of $299.8 thousand that occurred during the period and was based on Management’s quarterly analysis of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses.

Noninterest expense was higher by $694 thousand in comparison largely due to the addition of the Waterville and Custar offices in late 2013. In addition, an office located in Sylvania, Ohio was opened during the third quarter 2014. The number of full time equivalent employees was 249 as of September 30, 2013 compared to 253 as of September 30, 2014.

The low balances in past dues, nonaccruals, OREO and troubled loans, all contributed to lower levels of expense in legal fees as related to collections along with appraisal expense. A change to the calculation of Ohio state tax was also favorable for the Company in 2014.

Overall, the performance for the year-to-date comparison had a higher bottom line income of $265 thousand caused by the increased net interest income. It is a reversal of the previous quarter of 2014 when it was lower on the same time periods of year-to-date 2013.

The Company predicted the lower noninterest income position and is focused on continuing to strengthen our core earnings through loan growth and improvement to the net interest margin. New products and services are being introduced in 2014 to create additional revenue opportunities. As mentioned previously, deposit services have been the focus with updates and new services being offered with bill pay to form “FM eXpress”. Two new checking products, “Secure” and “Pure” have begun to be introduced with a few older products being discontinued.

Interest Income

Annualized interest income and yield on earning assets is up 30 basis points in 2014 as compared to September 30, 2013. While the average total earning assets were lower by 1% or $11.2 million than the prior year, the increase in interest income resulted primarily from the increased growth of the Company’s loan portfolios, up $92.4 million in average balances. As the table that follows confirms, the increase in the amount of the interest earning portfolios from loans caused a higher September 2014 earnings in loans, than the decrease in securities and caused higher combined yields. The increased volume in the loan portfolio also offset the loss in interest income due to rate changes. The security portfolio will continue to be utilized to fund loan growth. Prepayment speeds remain high on mortgage-backed securities, though these may slow as the Bank’s refinancing activity has slowed and long term rates inch higher.

Rates on the loan portfolio are lower as compared to the previous year due to the change in the composition of the overall portfolio. An emphasis on building spreads and margins on existing loans remains intact. Funding the loans with excess security holdings has been beneficial in the third quarter of 2014. Overall loans are up on average $92.4 million and the security portfolio down $91.5 million on average from the previous year.

The yields on tax-exempt securities and the portion of tax-exempt IDB loans included in loans have been tax adjusted based on a 34% tax rate in the charts to follow.

Interest Expense

Interest expense continued to be lower than the comparable nine months of 2013. Interest expense related to deposits was down $614 thousand while the average interest-bearing deposit balance decreased by $1.7 million in comparing the balances of each nine month period. Time deposits continue to reprice down and the Bank continues to try and lengthen the duration of the portfolio with specials offered in terms longer than thirty-nine months. However, depositors continue to place more funds in shorter term deposits while they wait for rates to rise or move funds elsewhere. KASASA Cash and Saver along with HSA’s helped to increase the savings average deposit balances by $34.3 million.

Interest on borrowed funds was $129 thousand lower for the nine month period ended September 30, 2014 than 2013. All borrowings from Federal Home Loan Bank were paid off during 2013 and 2014, making the average balance in other borrowed money considerably lower by $7.1 million in 2014 in comparison. Thus the largest decrease in cost of funds for other borrowed money was due to the decreased volume which also impacted the rate of the remaining borrowings portfolio. During the first quarter of 2014, all borrowings from the FHLB were paid off. Fed Funds Purchased and Securities Sold under Agreement to Repurchase had a larger average balance in 2014 of $8.8 million of whose cost was offset by lower rates making the fluctuation cost a minimal $6 thousand.

Asset yield increased 30 basis points while cost of funds decreased 14 basis points. The main focus is to continue to increase asset yield by using excess cash and the liquidation of lower yielding investments to fund loan growth. Borrowings may be utilized if the cost thereof is lower than cost of new deposit generation or the loss on sales of securities.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income is higher in the nine month comparison, which is the opposite position as yearend 2013’s comparison to yearend 2012. The issue of earning less per earning asset dollar was reversed as evidenced by a 40 basis point higher net interest margin ratio when comparing year-to-date 2014 to 2013. The tables above demonstrate that the improvements in net interest income are primarily a result of a continued shift in balance sheet composition, with the benefits of the shift to higher yielding assets continuing to be hampered by the extended low rate environment.

Management expects the current interest rate environment to continue to further hamper the Company’s progress on improving interest margins throughout the remainder of the fiscal year. As a result, interest income, in comparison to 2013, should increase throughout the remainder of the year assuming the continuing generation of loan growth. The Bank continues to attempt to add spread on renewing loans while loan growth is needed to improve the overall numbers. Interest expense on time deposits may start to show an increase as depositors begin to transition back into longer-term deposits. The portfolio has very limited potential for large fluctuations in rates due to the duration of this low rate environment. Should rates begin to rise; the challenge will be to delay the upward pricing of deposits in order to allow the Bank to generate a greater spread from the increased yield on its earning assets.

Provision Expense

Provision expense taken for loan loss was $572 thousand higher for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same 2013 period. Loan growth throughout 2014 warranted the increased provision to the loan loss reserve. With an over 16% loan growth rate the last twelve months, the Company recognizes some time will need to pass for these loans to season. The prudent action was to reserve for growth, which is higher than any of the historical periods used in the ALLL calculations. The balance in nonaccrual loans decreased $1.3 million along with a slight increase of $125 thousand in impaired loan balances as of September 30, 2014 as compared to the balances as of September 30, 2013. The overall loan portfolio was also $85.3 million higher as of September 30, 2014 compared to September 30, 2013. The Bank continues to focus on the commercial and commercial real estate portfolios for both asset quality and growth. As the charts on the following page will show for 2013 and 2012, a large portion of the provision was also to replace the reserve balance depleted from the net charge-offs during the period. The first three quarters of 2014 had a larger net charge-off position than compared to the same period for fiscal year 2012, although net charge-offs were lower than in the same period in 2013.

Should the recovery stop or continue to slow even further, it is more likely additional credits may encounter cash flow problems and the Bank remains diligent in providing funds to offset future losses. In the immediate future, the Bank would expect to fund the loan loss reserve for any loan growth that may occur.

The Bank uses the following guidelines as stated in policy to determine when to realize a charge-off, whether a partial or full loan balance. A charge down in whole or in part is realized when unsecured consumer loans, credit card credits and overdraft lines of credit reach 90 days delinquency. At 120 days delinquent, secured consumer loans are charged down to the value of the collateral, if repossession of the collateral is assured and/or in the process of repossession. Consumer mortgage loan deficiencies are charged down upon the sale of the collateral or sooner upon the recognition of collateral deficiency. Commercial and agricultural credits are charged down at 120 days delinquency, unless an established and approved work-out plan is in place or litigation of the credit will likely result in recovery of the loan balance. Upon notification of bankruptcy, unsecured debt is charged off. Additional charge-off may be realized as further unsecured positions are recognized.

The Bank has recognized a slight increase in the overall balance of impaired loans when looking at September 2014 compared to September 2013. A positive factor can be seen in the decrease in the current average balance for the nine months during 2014 as compared to same period 2013 of $1.5 million. This is due mainly to the collection of principal from the sale of collateral from borrowers and continual collection of payments on these borrowers classified as impaired.

The Bank had $824.4 thousand of its impaired loans classified as TDR as of September 30, 2014. One new TDR impaired relationship with two individual loans was added during the first quarter without any additional in the second and third quarter. When combined with pay downs, the change resulted in $754 thousand less in impaired balances and the specific allocation balance was decreased by $264 thousand as compared to yearend 2013.

In determining the allocation for impaired loans the Bank applies the observable market price of the collateral securing the asset, reduced by applying a discount for estimated costs of collateral liquidation. In some instances where the discounted market value is less than the loan amount, a specific impairment allocation is assigned, which may be reduced or eliminated by the write down of the credit’s active principal outstanding balance.

For the majority of the Bank’s impaired loans, the Bank will apply the observable market price methodology. However, the Bank may also utilize a measurement incorporating the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective rate of interest. To determine observable market price, collateral asset values securing an impaired loan are periodically evaluated. Maximum time of re-evaluation is every 12 months for chattels and titled vehicles and every two years for real estate. In this process, third party evaluations are obtained and heavily relied upon. Until such time that updated appraisals are received, the Bank may discount the collateral value used.

The ALLL has a direct impact on the provision expense. The increase in the ALLL is funded through recoveries and provision expense. The following tables both deal with the allowance for credit losses. The first table breaks down the activity within ALLL for each loan portfolio segment and shows the contribution provided by both the recoveries and the provision along with the reduction of the allowance caused by charge-offs. The second table

discloses how much of the ALLL is attributed to each segment of the loan portfolio, as well as the percent that each particular segment of the loan portfolio represents to the entire loan portfolio in the aggregate. Commercial real estate loans accounted for the largest component of charge-offs and consumer loan activity has accounted for the largest component of recoveries through third quarter 2014 as compared to 2013. As was mentioned in previous discussion, the commercial real estate portfolio is currently having a major impact on the ALLL, both through charge-off activity and due to growth of balances.

The percentage of delinquent loans has trended downward since the beginning of 2010 from a high of 2.85% of total loans in January to 0.22% which was a new low as of June 30, 2014. September 2014 increased slightly to 0.34% though any percentage under 1% is considered low. These percentages do not include nonaccrual loans which are not past due. This level of delinquency is due in part to an adherence to sound underwriting practices over the course of time, an improvement in the financial status of companies to which the Bank extends credit, continued financial stability in the agricultural loan portfolio, growth of the last year the write down of uncollectable credits in a timely manner and the new loan.

Non-interest Income

Overall, noninterest income for nine months 2014 was $804 thousand below the same time period of 2013. As has been expected, revenue from gains on sales of loans and investment securities diminished compared to prior periods. The Bank was able to capitalize on those opportunities; however, current increases in the long term market rates has slowed the progress. All categories of noninterest income decreased as compared to year-to-date 2013. The Bank does not expect a significant change in the opportunity for gains for the remainder of 2014.

$57.9 million in sales of investment securities were conducted so far in 2014 to fund loan growth and capture some additional revenue. The sales resulted in a gain of $494 thousand. The same time period 2013 had sales of $63.6 million resulting in gains of $732 thousand. The difference between 2014 and 2013 sales was the utilization of the funds. 2014 went to fund loan growth while 2013 was reinvested in securities.

This does not mean that some avenues were not available for improvement. With the percentage of core deposits, specifically checking accounts, increasing throughout the Bank’s market area, debit card usage was higher. Corresponding interchange income increased to over $588 thousand for the quarter, outperforming year-to-date 2013 by $194 thousand.

Overdraft and return check fees were lower by $76 thousand in comparing the periods, even though the number of accounts has increased.

The Bank is in the early stages of implementing new (while revamping older) products and services to capture additional revenue. More importantly, to also add value to our customer experience and meet new service demands.

The impact of mortgage servicing rights, both to income and expense, is shown in the following table which reconciles the value of mortgage servicing rights. The capitalization runs through non-interest income while the amortization thereof is included in non-interest expense. For 2014, mortgage servicing rights caused a net $68 thousand more in expense than for nine months 2013. The carrying value is well below the market value of $3.1 million which indicates any large expense to fund the valuation allowance to be unlikely in 2014.

The movement of income from comprehensive income (loss) to realized gain on sale of securities is disclosed in the table to follow. Since the Company classifies its entire investment portfolio, with the exception of stock, as available for sale, the majority of any gain/loss on the sale is a direct shift of funds from unrealized gain to realized gain. Since the purchase of additional or replacement securities occurs at the same time, those new securities immediately impact the other comprehensive loss.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $694 thousand higher than for the same period of 2013. Salaries and wages were $373 thousand higher 2014 compared to 2013 for the same nine month time frame. The number of full time equivalent employees increased from 249 as of September 30, 2013 to 253 as of September 30, 2014. 2014’s numbers include the addition of three offices.

Medical costs show only an $86 thousand increase in comparing year-to-date 2014 to 2013. The Bank instituted a change to how a HSA contribution per employee was given. Instead of depositing all at once at the start of the year as was done in 2013, the contribution is distributed through the year. The Bank also switched medical providers at yearend 2013, which resulted in claims which would have normally been covered in 2014 being expensed in 2013. Health insurance costs have increased for the Bank in 2014, more than is evident in looking at the line items.

The incentive accrual for 2014 and 2013 differs by $121.8 thousand. This is due to the net income of the Bank for the periods on which the incentive is calculated are almost equivalent, differing by $265 thousand. 2014 is higher in net income, number of employees and incentive expense. The Bank continues to reward employees for performance and the accrual reflects this.

Loss on sale of other assets owned was higher by $6 thousand as of third quarter end 2014 as compared to same period 2013. This line item includes losses from sales of assets, losses from write-downs to the Bank’s OREO and losses resulting from the loss or disposal of fixed assets, though the fixed asset impact is inconsequential. Holdings in OREO decreased to $1.3 million as of September 30, 2014 compared to holdings of $2.4 million as of September 30. 2013. Activity on sales of OREO has been strong in 2014 with thirteen sales, matching the same number of sales in nine months 2013 and
