Management Discussion
  • Net interest income is calculated as the difference between interest and fee income generated from earning assets and the interest expense paid on deposits and borrowed funds. Fluctuations in interest rates, as well as volume and mix changes in earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, can materially impact net interest income. The Company’s earning assets consist of loans, taxable and tax-exempt investments, Federal Home Loan Bank stock, federal funds sold by the Bank and interest-bearing deposits in banks. Interest-bearing liabilities consist of interest-bearing demand deposits and savings and time deposits, as well as short-term borrowings.
  • Net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 decreased by $0.4 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021.  The decrease in net interest income comparing the two periods resulted from a decrease in interest and fees on loans, partially offset by an increase in interest on investment securities and a decrease in interest expense.  Average yield on interest-earning assets decreased to 4.28% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 4.78% for the corresponding quarter of 2021, while aggregate funding costs, including noninterest-bearing deposits and borrowings, decreased to 0.32% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 0.39% in the first quarter of 2021.  Net interest margin was reduced by 43 basis points to 3.97% during the first quarter of 2022, compared to 4.40% during the first quarter of 2021.
  • During the first quarter of 2022, both interest income and interest expense continued to be impacted by the relatively low interest rate environment that began in early 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, a number of benchmark interest rates increased during the first quarter of 2022, and it is expected that the Company’s net interest income will continue to be impacted by changes in the interest rate environment.  Management’s interest rate risk modeling generally indicates that both net interest margin and net interest income would benefit over time in a rising interest rate environment and would decrease in a reducing interest rate environment.  In addition, the Company’s strategy to cease new business development at ALC is expected to reduce average yields on loans in the near term until the ALC portfolio has paid down to nominal levels. Management expects that growth in loan volume with loans of sufficient credit quality will enhance net interest income as earning assets are shifted from lower earning cash and federal funds sold balances into loan assets.  However, the environment for both loan and deposit generation is highly competitive and subject to the interest rate environment.  Reductions in either loan volume or deposit levels could result in downward pressure on net interest income.
