Quaint Oak Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX: QNTO), the holding company for Quaint Oak Bank, publicized today that net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, was $177,000.00, or $0.1 per basic and $0.090 per diluted share, compared to $455,000.00, or $0.250 per basic and $0.230 per diluted share for the same period in 2016.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2017, was $1.470M, or $0.790 per basic and $0.740 per diluted share, compared to $1.50M, or $0.840 per basic and $0.770 per diluted share for the same period in 2016.

The Tax Act reduced the corporate Federal income tax rate from 35.00% to 21.00% and made other changes to U.S. corporate income tax laws.  Accordingly, the incremental income tax cost recorded by the Company in the 4th-quarter of 2017 related to the Tax Act was $297,000.00 ($0.160 per basic and $0.150 per diluted share impact).

Net income amounted to $177,000.00 for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, a decline of $278,000.00, or 61.10%, compared to net income of $455,000.00 for 3-months ended December 31, 2016.

The decline in net income on a comparative quarterly basis was primarily the result of inclines in the provision for income taxes of $413,000.00 and non-interest cost of $427,000.00, partially offset by inclines in non-interest income of $300,000.00 and net interest income of $237,000.00, and a decline in the provision for loan losses of $25,000.00.

The incline in the provision for income taxes was primarily due to the $297,000.00 re-measurement charge of the Company’s net deferred tax asset as a result of the Tax Act signed into law on December 22, 2017.

The $237,000.00, or 13.50%, incline in net interest income for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017 over the comparable period in 2016 was driven by a $354,000.00, or 14.50%, incline in interest income, partially offset by a $117,000.00, or 16.90%, incline in interest cost.

The incline in interest income was primarily due to a $31.80M incline in average loans receivable, net, including loans held for sale, which inclined from an average balance of $172.10M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016 to an average balance of $203.90M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, and had the effect of increasing interest income $437,000.00.

Partially offsetting this incline was a 19.00 basis point decline in the average yield on loans receivable, net, including loans held for sale, from 5.490% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016 to 5.30% for the year ended December 31, 2017, which had the effect of decreasing interest income by $96,000.00.

The incline in interest cost was primarily attributable to a $17.60M incline in average interest-bearing liabilities, which inclined from an average balance of $183.70M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016 to an average balance of $201.30M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, and had the effect of increasing interest cost $56,000.00.

This incline in average interest-bearing liabilities was primarily attributable to a $13.00M incline in  average Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings which inclined from $12.60M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016 to an average balance of $25.60M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, and had the effect of increasing interest cost $34,000.00, and a $4.90M incline in average certificate of deposit accounts which inclined from an average balance of $137.70M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016 to an average balance of $142.60M for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, and had the effect of increasing interest cost $21,000.00.

Also contributing to this incline was a ten basis point incline in the average rate on interest-bearing liabilities, from 1.510% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016, to 1.610% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, which had the effect of increasing interest cost by $61,000.00.

This incline in rate was primarily attributable to a 73.0 basis point incline in rate on average Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings, which inclined from 1.050% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016, to 1.780% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, which had the effect of increasing interest cost by $48,000.00, and a four basis point incline in rate on average certificate of deposit accounts, which inclined from 1.730% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016 to 1.770% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, and had the effect of increasing interest cost by $13,000.00.

The average interest rate spread inclined from 3.320% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016, to 3.350% for the same period in 2017 while the net interest margin inclined from 3.460% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2016, to 3.520% for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017.

The $25,000.00, or 20.80%, decline in the provision for loan losses for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017, over the 3-months ended December 31, 2016 was based on an evaluation of the allowance relative to such factors as volume of the loan portfolio, concentrations of credit risk, prevailing economic conditions, prior loan loss experience and amount of non-performing loans at December 31, 2017.

The $300,000.00, or 41.20%, incline in non-interest income for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017 over the comparable period in 2016 was primarily attributable to a 236,000.00, or 68.00%, incline in net gain on the sales of residential mortgage loans, a $62,000.00, or 92.50%, decline in loss on sales and write-downs on other real estate owned, a $27,000.00, or 245.50%, incline in other non-interest income, a $15,000.00, or 6.60%, incline in mortgage banking and title abstract fees, and an $11,000.00, or 9.00%, incline in insurance commissions earned by Quaint Oak Insurance Agency, a wholly owned insurance subsidiary of Quaint Oak Bank, partially offset by a $49,000.00, or 76.60%, decline in other fees and services charges.

The $427,000.00, or 23.50%, incline in non-interest cost for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 was primarily attributable to a $293,000.00, or 24.60%, incline in salaries and employee benefits cost, due primarily to inclined staff related to the continued expansion of the Company’s mortgage banking and lending operations, and the expansion of our real estate subsidiary.  Also contributing to the incline was a $58,000.00, or 107.40%, incline in data processing cost, a $49,000.00, or 169.00%, incline in advertising cost, and a $29,000.00, or 13.70%, incline in other costs.

The $413,000.00 incline in the provision for income taxes for the 3-months ended December 31, 2017 over the 3-month period ended December 31, 2016, was primarily due to the $297,000.00 re-measurement charge of the Company’s net deferred tax asset as a result of the Tax Act signed into law on December 22, 2017.

For the year ended December 31, 2017, net income declined $31,000.00, or 2.10%, from $1.50M for the year ended December 31, 2016, to $1.470M for the year ended December 31, 2017. The decline was primarily the result of inclines in the provision for income taxes of $469,000.00 and non-interest cost of $1.40M, partially offset by inclines in net interest income of $968,000.00 and non-interest income of $839,000.00, and a decline in the provision for loan losses of $8,000.00.  As was the case with the quarter, the incline in the provision for income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2017 over the year ended December 31, 2016 was primarily due to the $297,000.00 re-measurement charge of the Company’s net deferred tax asset as a result of the Tax Act signed into law on December 22, 2017.

The $968,000.00, or 14.60%, incline in net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2017, over the comparable period in 2016 was driven by a $1.40M, or 15.30%, incline in interest income, partially offset by a $437,000.00, or 17.00%, incline in interest cost.

The incline in interest income was primarily due to a $33.60M incline in average loans receivable, net, including loans held for sale, which inclined from an average balance of $159.60M for the year ended December 31, 2016 to an average balance of $193.20M for the year ended December 31, 2017, and had the effect of increasing interest income $1.90M.

This incline in rate was primarily attributable to a 52.0 basis point  incline in rate on average Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings, which inclined from 1.010% for the year ended December 31, 2016, to 1.530% for the year ended December 31, 2017, which had the effect of increasing interest cost by $110,000.00, and a 3-basis point incline in rate on average certificate of deposit accounts, which inclined from 1.710% for the year ended December 31, 2016 to 1.740% for the year ended December 31, 2017, and had the effect of increasing interest cost by $44,000.00.

The $8,000.00, or 2.70%, decline in the provision for loan losses for the year ended December 31, 2017 over the year ended December 31, 2016 was based on an evaluation of the allowance relative to such factors as volume of the loan portfolio, concentrations of credit risk, prevailing economic conditions, prior loan loss experience and amount of non-performing loans at December 31, 2017.
