Form 10-Q

EUREKA HOMESTEAD BANCORP, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

SEPTEMBER 30, 2021 (Unaudited)

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation -

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Eureka Homestead Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) were prepared in accordance with instructions for Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X and do not include information or footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial condition, results of operations, comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements have been included. The results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the entire year. These statements should be read in conjunction with the Financial Statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2020 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Reference is made to the accounting policies of the Company described in the Notes to the Financial Statements contained in the Annual Report.

In preparing the financial statements, the Company is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The financial statements reflect all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows for the interim periods presented. These adjustments are of a normal recurring nature and include appropriate estimated provisions.

Note 2 Recent Accounting Pronouncements -

Emerging Growth Company Status

The Company qualifies as an “emerging growth company” under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). For as long as the Company is an emerging growth company, it may choose to take advantage of exemptions from various reporting requirements applicable to other public companies. An emerging growth company may elect to use the extended transition period to delay adoption of new or revised accounting pronouncements applicable to public companies until such pronouncements are made applicable to private companies, but must make such election when the company is first required to file a registration statement. The Company has elected to use the extended transition period described above and intends to maintain its emerging growth company status as allowed under the JOBS Act.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), Conforming Amendments Related to Leases. This ASU amends the codification regarding leases in order to increase transparency and comparability. The ASU requires companies to recognize lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. A lessee would recognize a liability to make lease payments and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the leased asset for the lease term. For an emerging growth company, the amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. The adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

8

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The amendments introduce an impairment model that is based on current expected credit losses (“CECL”), rather than incurred losses, to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments (e.g., loans and held to maturity securities), including certain off-balance sheet financial instruments (e.g., commitments to extend credit and standby letters of credit that are not unconditionally cancellable). The CECL should consider historical information, current information, and reasonable and supportable forecasts, including estimates of prepayments, over the contractual term. An entity must use judgment in determining the relevant information and estimation methods that are appropriate in its circumstances. Financial instruments with similar risk characteristics may be grouped together when estimating the CECL. The ASU also amends the current available-for-sale security impairment model for debt securities whereby credit losses relating to available-for-sale debt securities should be recorded through an allowance for credit losses. For an emerging growth company, the amendments in this update, as amended through more recent related ASUs, are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023. The amendments will be applied through a modified retrospective approach, resulting in a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. The Company is currently planning for the implementation of this accounting standard. It is too early to assess the impact this ASU will have on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740. The amendments also improve consistent application of and simplifies GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2021, with early adopting permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the adoption of this standard on the Company’s consolidated financial position.

In March 2020the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting and in January 2021, issued an update ASU 2021-01The ASUs provide optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease the potential burden in accounting for (or derecognizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting. Specifically, the amendments provide optional expedients and exceptions for applying U.S. GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. These relate only to those contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. The ASUs became effective March 12, 2020 and can be adopted anytime during the period of January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance. There are only two relationships that have LIBOR pricing with a maturity date beyond December 31, 2022The loan documentation for the relationships contain language for an alternative pricing index when LIBOR is no longer available.

Note 3 – Earnings (Loss) Per Share -

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) represents income available or loss attributable to common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding; no dilution for any potentially convertible shares is included in the calculation. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the earnings of the Company. The potential common shares that may be issued by the Company relate to outstanding stock options.

Management evaluates securities for other-than temporary impairment on a periodic and regular basis, as well as when economic or market concerns warrant such evaluation. NaN declines at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, were deemed to be other-than-temporary.

In analyzing an issuer’s financial condition, management considers whether the federal government or its agencies issued the securities, whether downgrades by bond rating agencies have occurred and the results of reviews of the issuer’s financial statements.

Management evaluates the allowance for loan losses to assess the risk of loss in the loan portfolio and to determine the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses. For purposes of this evaluation, loans are aggregated into pools based on various characteristics. Some of those characteristics include payment status, concentrations, and loan to collateral value and the financial status of borrowers. The allowance allocated to each of these pools is based on historical charge-off rates, adjusted for changes in the credit risk characteristics within these pools, as determined from current information and analyses. In determining the appropriate level of the allowance, management also ensures that the overall allowance appropriately reflects current macroeconomic conditions, industry exposure and a margin for the imprecision inherent in most estimates of expected credit losses. In addition to these factors, management also considers the following for each segment of the loan portfolio when determining the allowance:

Residential mortgages - This category consists of loans secured by first and junior liens on residential real estate. The performance of these loans may be adversely affected by unemployment rates, local residential real estate market conditions and the interest rate environment.

Commercial real estate - This category consists of loans primarily secured by office buildings, and retail shopping facilities. The performance of commercial real estate loans may be adversely affected by conditions specific to the relevant industry, the real estate market for the property type and geographic region where the property or borrower is located.

Construction and land - This category consists of loans to finance the ground-up construction and/or improvement of construction of residential and commercial properties and loans secured by land. The performance of construction and land loans is generally dependent upon the successful completion of improvements and/or land development for the end user, the sale of the property to a third party, or a secondary source of cash flow from the owners. The successful completion of planned improvements and development maybe adversely affected by changes in the estimated property value upon completion of construction, projected costs and other conditions leading to project delays.

Multi-family residential - This category consists of loans secured by apartment or residential buildings with five or more units used to accommodate households on a temporary or permanent basis. The performance of multi-family loans is generally dependent on the receipt of rental income from the tenants who occupy the subject property. The occupancy rate of the subject property and the ability of the tenants to pay rent may be adversely affected by the location of the subject property and local economic conditions.

Consumer - This category consists of loans to individuals for household, family and other personal use. The performance of these loans may be adversely affected by national and local economic conditions, unemployment rates and other factors affecting the borrower's income available to service the debt. All of our consumer loans are secured by our customers’ savings accounts and/or certificates of deposit.

As a result of the uncertainties inherent in the estimation process, management’s estimate of loan losses and the related allowance could change in the near term.

Based on management’s periodic evaluation of the allowance for loan losses, a provision for loan losses is charged to operations if additions to the allowance are required. Actual loan charge-offs are deducted from the allowance and subsequent recoveries of previously charged-off loans are added to the allowance.

The following tables set forth, as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the balance of the allowance for loan losses by portfolio segment, disaggregated by impairment methodology, which is then further segregated by amounts evaluated for impairment collectively and individually. The allowance for loan losses allocated to each portfolio segment is not necessarily indicative of future losses in any particular portfolio segment and does not restrict the use of the allowance to absorb losses in other portfolio segments.

The allowance for loan losses for Mortgage 1-4 Family Loans of $818,000 includes an unallocated portion of $495,000 as of December 31, 2020.

Management further disaggregates the loan portfolio segments into classes of loans, which are based on the initial measurement of the loan, risk characteristics of the loan and the method for monitoring and assessing the credit risk of the loan.

13

Loan Grades / Classification

The primary purpose of grading loans is to assess credit quality and assist in identifying potential problem loans. Every loan in the portfolio is assigned a loan grade based on quality and level of risk. Loan grades are updated as events occur that bear on the collectability of the loan, such as change in payment flow or status of the obligor or collateral. Changes in loan grades are reported to the Board Loan Committee.

Each credit reviewed is assigned a loan grade based on the following system:

Loan Grade 1Pass – Good

Loans with no identified problems and do not require more than normal attention. The repayment source is well defined and the borrower/guarantor exhibits no inability of repaying the loan as agreed. The financial information is acceptable and the loan meets credit and policy requirements and exhibits no unusual elements of risk. The collateral is acceptable and adequate.

Loan Grade 2Pass – Fair

These are performing owner-occupied loans that exhibit diminished borrower capacity, such as sufficiently-aged Troubled Debt Restructurings or loans that are frequently delinquent more than 30 days but less than 60 days. Also included are performing investor loans with a good payment record but lack updated financial information but are judged from alternate sources to have satisfactory cash flows and a sufficiently strong guarantor.

Loan Grade 3Watch

Owner-occupied loans that are well-secured but are occasionally delinquent more than 60 days but less than 90. Also included are performing investor loans lacking required current financial information or that demonstrate diminished guarantor capacity and an estimated stressed debt service coverage ratio of less than 1.20.

Loan Grade 4Special Mention (For investment loans only.)

Investment loans that have potential or identified weaknesses that deserve management’s close attention. If left uncorrected, these may result in deterioration of the repayment prospects for the asset or in the institution’s credit position at some future date. These loans are not adversely classified and do not expose the institution to sufficient risk to warrant adverse classification. Default is not imminent.

Adverse Classifications

Loan Grade 5Substandard

A loan that is inadequately protected by the current sound worth and paying capacity of the obligor or of the collateral pledge, if any. Assets so classified must have a well-defined weakness or weaknesses that jeopardize the liquidation of the debt. They are characterized by the distinct possibility that the Company will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected. Loss potential, while existing in the aggregate amount of substandard assets, does not have to exist in individual assets classified substandard.

Loan Grade 6Doubtful

A loan that has all the weaknesses inherent in one classified substandard with the added characteristic that the weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full, based on existing facts, conditions, and values, highly questionable and improbable. The possibility of loss is extremely high, but because of certain important and reasonable specific pending factors which may work to the advantage and strengthening of the asset, its classification as an estimated loss is deferred until its more exact status may be determined.

The Company seeks to assist customers that are experiencing financial difficulty by renegotiating loans within lending regulations and guidelines. Once modified in a troubled debt restructuring, a loan is generally considered impaired until its contractual maturity. At the time of the restructuring, the loan is evaluated for an asset-specific allowance for loan losses. The Company continues to specifically reevaluate the loan in subsequent periods, regardless of the borrower’s performance under the modified terms. If a borrower subsequently defaults on the loan after it is restructured, the Company provides an allowance for loan losses for the amount of the loan that exceeds the value of the related collateral.

The Company had 0 troubled debt restructurings as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 or any that defaulted subsequent to the restructuring through the date the financial statements were issued.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company modified 73 mortgage loans, with an aggregate balance of $15.6 million, in each case related to a hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and responses thereto. The Company worked with borrowers and provided modifications in the form of principal, interest and escrow deferral, in each case, for initial periods of up to 90 days. The deferred payments will be collected at the original maturity date or at the time the loan is ultimately paid off. As necessary, the Company is making available a second 90 day principal, interest and escrow deferral bringing the total potential deferral period to six months. Modifications were structured in a manner to best address each individual customer's current situation. These modifications are excluded from TDR classification under Section 4013 of the CARES Act or under applicable interagency guidance of the federal banking regulators. Modified loans are considered current and will continue to accrue interest during the deferral period.

As of September 30, 2021, all of the modified loans have resumed normal monthly payments (49), been paid off (23) or paid the entire deferred amounts (1). The Company has received no requests for additional deferrals.

On August 29, 2021, Hurricane Ida made landfall in southeast Louisiana between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. The Company did not sustain any significant damage to its locations, and our employees had no significant issues. Banking locations in the impacted markets closed as necessary prior to the hurricane's landfall and in our immediate market area in and around Metairie, Eureka Homestead and many banks, temporarily closed these office locations.

17

We immediately staffed our disaster recovery location in Baton Rouge for five days after the hurricane made landfall and re-opened our main office in Metairie and our loan production office in New Orleans after five days. We continue to assess the impact from the hurricane on our customers and, based on recent reports, we believe that 1 borrower sustained damage to the collateral securing a loan with a balance of $403,000. We granted the borrower a three-month deferral in September 2021. The collateral is adequately insured and to our knowledge, the borrower is making necessary repairs to the property.

The Company is closely monitoring all loans that received deferrals. As additional information becomes available, management will continue to evaluate these loans to ensure appropriate risk classification.

Note 6 – Regulatory Matters -

The Bank is subject to various regulatory capital requirements administered by its primary Federal regulator, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). Failure to meet the minimum capital requirements can initiate certain mandatory and possible additional discretionary actions by regulators that, if undertaken, could have a direct material effect on the Company and the financial statements. Under the regulatory capital adequacy guidelines and the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action, the Bank must meet specific capital guidelines involving quantitative measures of the Bank’s assets, liabilities and certain off-balance sheet items as calculated under regulatory reporting requirements. The Bank’s capital amounts and classification under the prompt corrective action guidelines are also subject to qualitative judgments by the regulators about components, risk weightings and other factors.

Quantitative measures established by regulation to ensure capital adequacy require the Bank to maintain minimum amounts and ratios of total capital, tier 1 capital, and common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets (as defined in the regulations), and leverage capital, which is tier 1 capital to adjusted average total assets (as defined). Management believes, as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, that the Bank meets all the capital adequacy requirements to which it is subject.

As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the most recent notifications from the OCC categorized the Bank as well capitalized under the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action. To remain categorized as well capitalized, the Bank will have to maintain minimum total capital, common equity tier 1 capital, tier 1 capital, and leveraged capital ratios as disclosed in the table below. There are no conditions or events since the most recent notification that management believes have changed the Bank’s category. The Bank’s actual and required capital amounts and ratios are as follows:

Note 7 – Commitments and Contingencies -

In the normal course of business, the Company has outstanding commitments, such as commitments to extend credit, which are not included in the accompanying financial statements. The Company’s exposure to credit loss in the event of nonperformance by the other party to the financial instruments for commitments to extend credit and standby letters is represented by the contractual or notional amount of those instruments. The Company uses the same credit policies in making such commitments as it does for instruments that are included in the Balance Sheets.

Commitments to extend credit are agreements to lend to a customer as long as there is no violation of any condition established in the contract. Commitments generally have fixed expiration dates or other termination clauses and may require payment of a fee. The Company evaluates each customer’s creditworthiness on a case-by-case basis. The amount of collateral obtained, if deemed necessary by the Company upon extension of credit, is based on management’s credit evaluation.

At September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had $5,860,000 and $1,983,000 of outstanding commitments to originate loans, respectively, all of which represents the balance of remaining funds to be disbursed on construction loans in process. In recent years we have sold loans on an industry-standard, servicing-released basis. At September 30, 2021, there were mortgage loans sold to investors with limited recourse for certain periods after the date of sale totaling $12.1 million at the sale date. Recourse would apply if the borrower(s) default on any payment within the first four months of the mortgage loan and it remains in default for a period of 90 days, or if the mortgage loan prepays in full within 180 days of the sale date. Should an early payment default occur, Eureka Homestead shall, at its sole discretion, repurchase such mortgage loan from the purchaser at its current amortized balance plus the service release premium received or indemnify the purchaser by paying the service release premium received plus $5,000. Should a mortgage loan prepay in full within 180 days of the sale date, Eureka

19

Homestead shall refund to the purchaser the servicing release premium paid. There have been mortgage loans sold that had an early payment default or that prepaid in full during the recourse period.

In the normal course of business, the Company is involved in various legal proceedings. In the opinion of management and counsel, the disposition or ultimate resolution of such proceedings would not have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Note 8 – Fair Values of Financial Instruments -

Fair Value Disclosures

The Company uses fair value measurements to record fair value adjustments to certain assets and liabilities and to determine fair value disclosures. In accordance with FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements, the fair value of a financial instrument is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value is best determined based on quoted market prices. However, in many instances, there are no quoted market prices for the Company’s various financial instruments.

In cases where quoted market prices are not available, fair values are significantly affected by the assumptions used, including the discount rate and estimates of future cash flows. Accordingly, fair value estimates may not be realized in an immediate settlement of the instrument.

The fair value accounting guidance establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under this guidance are described below.

Level 1 - Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date. An active market for the asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.

Level 2 - Level 2 inputs are inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. Level 2 inputs include the following:

a.Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets;
b.Quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, that is, markets in which there are few transactions for the asset or liability, the prices are not current, or price quotations vary substantially either over time or among market makers (for example, some brokered markets), or in which little information is released publicly (for example, a principal-to principal market);
c.Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (for example, interest rates and yield curves observable at commonly quoted intervals, volatilities, prepayment speeds, loss severities, credit risks, and default rates); and
d.Inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market-corroborated inputs).

Level 3 - Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability. Unobservable inputs shall be used to measure fair value to the extent that observable inputs are not available, thereby allowing for situations in which there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date.

Therefore, unobservable inputs shall reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability (including assumptions about risk). Unobservable inputs shall be developed based on the best information available in the circumstances, which might include the reporting entity’s own data.

20

However, the reporting entity’s own data used to develop unobservable inputs shall be adjusted if information is reasonably available without undue cost and effort that indicates that market participants would use different assumptions.

A financial instrument’s categorization within the valuation hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Recurring Basis

Fair values of investment securities and mortgage-backed securities were primarily measured using information from a third-party pricing service. This pricing service provides information by utilizing evaluated pricing models supported with market data information. Standard inputs include benchmark yields, reported trades, broker/dealer quotes, issuer spreads, benchmark securities, bids, offers, and reference data from market research publications.

The following tables present the balances of assets measured on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The Company did not record any liabilities at fair value for which measurement of the fair value was made on a recurring basis.

Non-recurring Basis

The Company has segregated all financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis into the most appropriate level within the fair value hierarchy based on the inputs used to determine the fair value at the measurement date in the table below. The Company did not record any liabilities at fair value for which measurement of the fair value was made on a non-recurring basis.

The fair value of the impaired loans is measured at the fair value of the collateral for collateral-dependent loans. Impaired loans are Level 2 assets measured using appraisals from external parties of the collateral less any prior liens. Repossessed assets are initially recorded at fair value less estimated costs to sell. The fair value of repossessed assets is based on property appraisals and an analysis of similar properties available. As such, the Company records

21

repossessed assets as Level 2. The Company had no impaired loans or repossessed assets at September 30, 2021 or December 31, 2020.

FASB ASC 825, Financial Instruments, requires disclosure of fair value information about financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate fair value, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet. In cases where quoted market prices are not available, fair values are based on estimates using present value or other valuation techniques. Those techniques are significantly affected by the assumptions used, including the discount rate and estimates of future cash flows. The derived fair value estimates cannot be substantiated through comparison to independent markets and, in many cases, could not be realized in immediate settlement of the instrument. FASB ASC 825 excludes certain financial instruments and all non-financial instruments from its disclosure requirements. Further, the disclosures do not include estimated fair values for items which are not financial instruments but which represent significant value to the Company, including core deposit intangibles and other fee-generating operations of the business. Reasonable comparability of fair value estimates between financial institutions may not be possible due to the wide range of permitted valuation techniques and numerous assumptions involved. The aggregate fair value amounts presented do not, and are not intended to, represent an aggregate measure of the underlying fair value of the Company.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate that value:

Cash and Cash Equivalents - For those short-term instruments, the carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Interest-Bearing Deposits in Banks- The carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Investment Securities (including mortgage-backed securities) - For investment securities, including mortgage-backed securities, fair value equals quoted market price, if available. If a quoted market price is not available, fair value is estimated using quoted market prices for similar securities.

Loans - The fair value of loans is estimated using discounted cash flow analyses, using the interest rates at which similar loans would be made to borrowers with similar credit ratings and for the same remaining maturities.

Loans Held-for-Sale - The loans held-for sale are recorded at the lower of aggregate cost or market value which is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

FHLB Stock - The carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Cash Surrender Value of Life Insurance - The carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Accrued Interest Receivable and Accrued Interest Payable - The carrying amounts of accrued interest receivable and accrued interest payable approximate the fair values.

Deposits - The fair value of savings accounts and certain money market deposits is the amount payable on demand at the reporting date (carrying value). The fair value of fixed maturity certificates of deposit is estimated using a discounted cash flow calculation that applies interest rates currently being offered for deposits of similar remaining maturities.

Advances from the FHLB - The fair values of the Advances from the FHLB are estimated using discounted cash flow analyses, based on the Company’s current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements.

Loan Commitments - For commitments to extend credit, fair value considers the difference between current levels of interest rates and the committed rates.

Note 9 – Change in Corporate Form -

On July 9, 2019, Eureka Homestead (the “Bank”) converted to a federal stock savings and loan association and established a stock holding company, Eureka Homestead Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”), as parent of the Bank.

In connection with the conversion, the Bank issued all of its common stock to the Company, becoming the wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and the Company issued and sold shares of its capital stock pursuant to an independent valuation appraisal of the Bank and the Company. The stock was priced at $10.00 per share. In addition, the Bank’s board of directors adopted an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) which subscribed for 8% of the common stock sold in the offering. The Conversion was completed on July 9, 2019 and resulted in the issuance of 1,429,676 common shares by the Company. The cost of the Conversion and issuing the capital stock totaled $1.2 million and was deducted from the proceeds of the offering.

In accordance with OCC regulations, at the time of the Conversion, the Bank substantially restricted retained earnings by establishing a liquidation account. The liquidation account will be maintained for the benefit of eligible account holders who continue to maintain their accounts at the Bank after the Conversion. The liquidation account will be reduced annually to the extent that eligible account holders have reduced their qualifying deposits. Subsequent increases will not restore an eligible account holder’s interest in the liquidation account. In the event of a complete liquidation by the Bank, and only in such event, each eligible account holder will be entitled to receive a distribution from the liquidation account in an amount proportionate to the adjusted qualifying account balances then held. The Bank may not pay dividends if those dividends would reduce equity capital below the required liquidation account amount.

The Conversion was accounted for as a change in corporate form with the historic basis of the Bank’s assets, liabilities and equity unchanged as a result.

Note 10 – Employee Stock Ownership Plan -

As part of the stock conversion, shares were purchased by the ESOP with a loan from Eureka Homestead Bancorp, Inc. All employees of the Bank meeting certain tenure requirements are entitled to participate in the ESOP.

23

Compensation expense related to the ESOP for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2021 was approximately $15,000 and $46,000, respectively.

The stock price when issued was $10 per share.  The fair value of the 102,000 unallocated shares was $1.3 million based on the average price of our common stock for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, of $13.26 per share.

Note 11 - Subsequent Events -

Management has evaluated subsequent events and transactions for potential recognition or disclosure in the financial statements through the date the financial statements were issued.

Item 2.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

General

Management’s discussion and analysis of the financial condition at September 30, 2021 and results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 is intended to assist in understanding the financial condition and results of operations of the Company. The information contained in this section should be read in conjunction with the unaudited financial statements and the notes thereto, appearing on Part I, Item 1 of this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

COVID-19 Impacts

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the governmental and societal response to the virus have negatively impacted overall economic conditions.

The Federal and state governments have worked to contain the spread of COVID-19. The result of these containment strategies has had an enormous impact on the economy and has had a negative impact on some borrowers’ ability to make timely loan payments. In recent months, a number of restrictive government initiatives designed to combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been eased on a national level and in Louisiana, as well as the rollout of three COVID-19 vaccines, allowing businesses to reopen at varying capacity levels, which has bolstered commercial activity and employment to some degree. However, another resurgence in infections and reimplementation of new and/or additional restrictions at the national and local level to combat the COVID-19 pandemic may present additional negative impacts to the economy and our customers. The duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic remain impossible to predict. The Federal Reserve Board and other various regulatory agencies have issued joint guidance to financial institutions to work with borrowers affected by the coronavirus. The Company instituted a loan deferment program whereby short-term deferrals of payments were allowed. Deferred payments are due at the time the loan is paid off. As of September 30, 2021 all of the loans modified by us have resumed normal monthly payments. We did not report these loans as delinquent and continued to recognize interest income during the deferral period. No increase in the allowance for loan losses was deemed necessary on these loans. These loans will continue to be monitored to determine collectability and accrual and delinquency status will be updated as deemed appropriate.

Under Section 4013 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security ("CARES") Act, loans less than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019 were considered current for COVID-19 modifications. A financial institution could then suspend the requirements under GAAP for loan modifications related to COVID-19 that would otherwise be categorized as a troubled debt restructuring (“TDR”), and suspend any determination of a loan modified as a result of COVID-19 as being a TDR, including the requirement to determine impairment for accounting purposes. Financial institutions wishing to utilize this authority were required to make a policy election, which applies to any COVID-19 modification made between March 1, 2020 and the earlier of either December 31, 2020 or the 60th day after the end of the COVID-19 national emergency. Similarly, the Financial Accounting Standards Board has confirmed that short-term modifications made on a good-faith basis in response to COVID-19 to loan customers who were current prior to any relief are not TDRs. Lastly, prior to the enactment of the CARES Act, the banking regulatory agencies provided guidance as to how certain short-term modifications would not be considered TDRs, and have subsequently confirmed that such guidance could be applicable for loans that do not qualify for favorable accounting treatment under Section 4013 of the CARES Act. Based on this guidance, the Company does not believe that TDRs will significantly change as a result of the modifications granted. The full impact on our lending and other business activities as a result of new government and regulatory policies, programs and guidelines, as well as regulators’ reaction to such activities, remains uncertain.

Hurricane Ida Impacts

On August 29, 2021, Hurricane Ida made landfall in southeast Louisiana between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. The Company did not sustain any significant damage to its locations, and our employees had no significant issues. Banking locations in the impacted markets closed as necessary prior to the hurricane's landfall and in our immediate market area in and around Metairie, Eureka Homestead and many banks, temporarily closed these office

25

locations We immediately staffed our disaster recovery location in Baton Rouge for five days after the hurricane made landfall and re-opened our main office in Metairie and our loan production office in New Orleans after five days. We continue to assess the impact from the hurricane on our customers, as the Federal regulators have encouraged banks to consider working with borrowers who have been affected by the event.

statements of our goals, intentions and expectations;
statements regarding our business plans, prospects, growth and operating strategies;
statements regarding the asset quality of our loan and investment portfolios; and
estimates of our risks and future costs and benefits.

These forward-looking statements are based on current beliefs and expectations of our management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond our control. In addition, these forward-looking statements are subject to assumptions with respect to future business strategies and decisions that are subject to change. We are under no duty to and do not take any obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date of this quarterly report.

The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements:

our ability to manage our operations under the economic conditions in our market area;
adverse changes in the financial industry, securities, credit and national and local real estate markets (including real estate values);
economic and/or policy changes related the COVID-19 pandemic;
significant increases in our loan losses, including as a result of our inability to resolve classified and non-performing assets or reduce risks associated with our loans, and management’s assumptions in determining the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses;
credit risks of lending activities, including changes in the level and trend of loan delinquencies and write-offs and in our allowance for loan losses and provision for loan losses;
the use of estimates in determining fair value of certain of our assets, which may prove to be incorrect and result in significant declines in valuations;
competition among depository and other financial institutions;
our success in increasing our one- to four-family residential real estate lending, multifamily real estate lending and commercial real estate lending;
our ability to attract and maintain deposits and to grow our core deposits, and our success in introducing new financial products;

26

our ability to maintain our asset quality even as we continue to grow our loan portfolios;
our reliance in part on funding sources, including out-of-market jumbo deposits and borrowings, other than core deposits to support our operations;
changes in interest rates generally, including changes in the relative differences between short term and long term interest rates and in deposit interest rates, that may affect our net interest margin and funding sources;
fluctuations in the demand for loans;
changes in consumer spending, borrowing and savings habits;
declines in the yield on our assets resulting from the current low interest rate environment;
risks related to a high concentration of loans secured by real estate located in our market area;
the results of examinations by our regulators, including the possibility that our regulators may, among other things, have judgments different than management’s, and we may determine to increase our allowance or write down assets as a result of these regulatory examinations; change our regulatory capital position; limit our ability to borrow funds or maintain or increase deposits; or prohibit us from paying dividends, which could adversely affect our dividends and earnings;
changes in the level of government support of housing finance;
our ability to enter new markets successfully and capitalize on growth opportunities;
changes in laws or government regulations or policies affecting financial institutions, including the Dodd-Frank Act and the JOBS Act, which could result in, among other things, increased deposit insurance premiums and assessments, capital requirements, regulatory fees and compliance costs, particularly the new capital regulations, and the resources we have available to address such changes;
changes in accounting policies and practices, as may be adopted by the bank regulatory agencies, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board;
changes in our compensation and benefit plans, and our ability to retain key members of our senior management team and to address staffing needs in response to product demand or to implement our strategic plans;
loan delinquencies and changes in the underlying cash flows of our borrowers;
our ability to control costs and expenses, particularly those associated with operating as a publicly traded company;
the failure or security breaches of computer systems on which we depend;
the ability of key third-party service providers to perform their obligations to us;
changes in the financial condition or future prospects of issuers of securities that we own; and

27

other economic, competitive, governmental, regulatory and operational factors affecting our operations, pricing, products and services.

Because of these and a wide variety of other uncertainties, our actual future results may be materially different from the results indicated by these forward-looking statements.

Critical Accounting Policies

There are no material changes to the critical accounting policies disclosed in Eureka Homestead Bancorp, Inc.’s Annual Report in Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 25, 2021.

Comparison of Financial Condition at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020

Total Assets. Total assets increased $4.5 million, or 4.5%, to $104.4 million at September 30, 2021 from $99.9 million at December 31, 2020. The increase was due to increases in cash and cash equivalents of $4.0 million, in net loans of $4.5 million, in investment securities available-for-sale of $225,000 and in prepaid expenses and other assets of $538,000, offset in part by decreases of $2.7 million in interest-bearing deposits in banks and $2.0 million in loans held-for-sale.

Net Loans. Net loans increased $4.5 million, or 6.4%, to $74.3 million at September 30, 2021 from $69.9 million at December 31, 2020. One- to four-family residential real estate loans increased $1.5 million, or 2.3%, to $66.3 million at September 30, 2021 from $64.8 million at December 31, 2020, multifamily loans decreased $77,000, or 2.7%, to $2.8 million at September 30, 2021 from $2.9 million at December 31, 2020, construction and land loans increased $1.7 million, or 128.7% to $3.1 million at September 30, 2021 from $1.4 million at December 31, 2020, commercial real estate loans increased $1.1 million, or 309.9%, to $1.5 million at September 30, 2021 from $364,000 at December 31, 2020 and consumer loans decreased $15,000, or 7.0%, to $199,000 at September 30, 2021 from $214,000 at December 31, 2020.

The increase in net loans was due primarily to increases in commercial real estate loan participations loans with another local bank and in one- to four-family residential real estate loans, principally in non-conforming and construction loans earning higher interest rates than similar conforming loans, which are generally sold. The decreases in multifamily and consumer loans were due to normal repayments.

Cash and Cash Equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents increased $4.0 million, or 101.0%, to $7.9 million at September 30, 2021 from $4.0 million at December 31, 2020.

Interest-Bearing Deposits in Banks. Interest-bearing deposits in banks decreased $2.7 million, or 28.9%, to $6.7 million at September 30, 2021 from $9.5 million at December 31, 2020.

The net of these two balance sheet line items was an increase of $1.2 million principally due to the increase in deposits not yet deployed to make loans.

Securities Available-for-Sale. Investment securities available-for-sale, consisting of government-sponsored mortgage-backed securities and SBA 7a pools backed by equipment and mortgage loans, increased $225,000, or 3.7%, to $6.3 million at September 30, 2021 from $6.1 million at December 31, 2020 as a result of the purchase of $1 million of securities, offset in part by normal repayments.

Bank-Owned Life Insurance. At September 30, 2021, our investment in bank-owned life insurance was $4.2 million, an increase of $66,000, or 1.6%, from $4.1 million at December 31, 2020. We invest in bank-owned life insurance to provide us with a funding offset for our benefit plan obligations. Bank-owned life insurance also generally provides us noninterest income that is non-taxable.

Prepaid Expenses and Other Assets. Prepaid expenses and other assets increased $538,000, or 233.9%, to $768,000 at September 30, 2021 from $230,000 at December 31, 2020. The increase resulted principally from $548,000

28

of funds sent to a loan closing attorney for a loan that ultimately did not close and an increase of $29,000 of prepaid expenses. The loan funds were returned to the Company in October. The increases were offset in part by decreases of $16,000 in mortgage banking income accruals and $23,000 in prepaid income taxes resulting from the receipt of amounts due from the carryback of tax net operating losses.

Deposits. Deposits increased $5.5 million, or 9.7%, to $61.9 million at September 30, 2021 from $56.4 million at December 31, 2020, principally due to increases of $4.2 million in certificates of deposit, or 8.0%, to $57.8 million at September 30, 2021 from $53.6 million at December 31, 2020 and $1.2 million in savings accounts, or 43.5% to $4.1 million at September 30, 2021 from $2.9 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in certificates of deposit resulted primarily from an increase in certificates of deposit derived from an online service of $3.5 million and from brokers of $1.9 million, offset in part by decreases of $454,000 of local retail certificates of deposit and $684,000 of certificates of deposit from municipalities. Depending on market conditions, at times we have utilized non-retail funding sources to fund our loan origination and growth and to replace Federal Home Loan Bank advances, as well as in order to get longer-term funding not always available in the local market in to help reduce interest rate risk.

Borrowings. Borrowings, consisting entirely of Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances, decreased $1.2 million, or 6.3% to $18.2 million at September 30, 2021 from $19.4 million at December 31, 2020 due to maturities and normal repayments.

Total Equity. Total equity decreased $66,000, or 0.3%, to $21.9 million at September 30, 2021 from $21.9 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease resulted primarily from the repurchase of $280,000 of shares of common stock, offset in part by the net income of $150,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the allocation of ESOP shares of $44,000 and an increase in accumulated other comprehensive income of $20,000.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021 and 2020

General. We had a net loss of $13,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net loss of $68,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, a decrease of $55,000. The decrease in net loss resulted from an increase in net interest income of $109,000, offset, in part, by a decrease in noninterest income of $2,000 and an increase in noninterest expense of $52,000.

Interest Income. Interest income increased $16,000, or 2.4%, to $686,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $670,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was attributable to an increase in interest on loans receivable of $25,000, or 3.9%, offset, in part, by decreases in interest on investment securities of $2,000, or 14.3%, and interest on other interest-earning assets of $7,000, or 63.6%. The average balance of loans increased $6.4 million, or 9.1%, to $77.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $70.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and the average yield on loans decreased 18 basis points to 3.48% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 3.66% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The average balance of investment securities increased $975,000, or 21.7%, to $5.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $4.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, while the average yield on investment securities decreased 37 basis points to 0.88% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.25% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The average balance of other interest-earning assets decreased $7.1 million, or 34.1%, to $13.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $20.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and the average yield on other interest-earning assets decreased 9 basis points to 0.12% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 0.21% for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Interest Expense. Total interest expense decreased $93,000, or 24.3%, to $289,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $382,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was due to decreases of $57,000, or 23.8%, in interest expense on deposits and $36,000, or 25.4%, in interest expense on advances from the FHLB. The average balance of interest-bearing deposits increased $7.1 million, or 12.8%, to $62.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $55.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and the average cost of interest-bearing deposits in banks decreased 56 basis points to 1.16% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.72% for the three months ended September 30, 2020, resulting from lower market interest rates period to period. The average balance of FHLB advances decreased $3.5 million, or 15.7%, to $18.7 million for the

29

three months ended September 30, 2021 from $22.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The average cost of these advances decreased 30 basis points to 2.26% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 2.56% for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Net Interest Income. Net interest income increased $109,000, or 37.8%, to $397,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $288,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Average net interest-earning assets decreased $3.3 million period to period. This decrease was due primarily to a decrease in the average balance of other interest-earning assets, offset, in part, by increases in loans receivable and investment securities. Our interest rate spread increased 59 basis points to 1.43% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 0.84% for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and our net interest margin increased 45 basis points to 1.65% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.20% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increases in interest rate spread and interest rate margin were primarily the result of interest rates on average interest-bearing liabilities dropping more than interest rates on interest-earning assets during the three months ended September 30, 2021 versus the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Provision for Loan Losses. There were no provisions for loan losses for the three months ended September 30, 2021 or for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The allowance for loan losses was $858,000, or 1.16% of total loans, at September 30, 2021, compared to $850,000, or 1.22% of total loans, at December 31, 2020, and $850,000, or 1.24%, of total loans, at September 30, 2020. Classified (substandard, doubtful and loss) loans decreased to $0 at September 30, 2021 from $559,000 at December 31, 2020 and $562,000 at September 30, 2020. There were no non-performing loans at September 30, 2021, December 31, 2020 or September 30, 2020. There were no charge-offs or recoveries for the three months ended September 30, 2021 or for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Noninterest IncomeNoninterest income decreased $2,000, or 0.7%, to $269,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $271,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was principally due to decreases of $4,000, or 1.8%, in fees on loans sold and $1,000, or 4.36%, in income from life insurance. The decrease was offset, in part, by an increase of $3,000, or 15.0%, in service charges and other income.

Noninterest Expense. Noninterest expense increased $52,000, or 8.3%, to $679,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $627,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase of $63,000, or 16.8%, in salaries and employee benefits, resulting primarily from an increase in commissions and related expenses on higher loan volume period to period, as well as increases of $19,000, or 65.5%, in accounting and consulting expense and $2,000, or 9.5%, in insurance expense. The increases were offset, in part, by decreases of $4,000, or 7.1%, in occupancy expense, $13,000, or 43.3%, in data processing expense, $13,000, or 54.2%, in legal expense and $2,000, or 2.7%, in other expenses.

In future periods, if we make grants of awards under our equity incentive plan which was approved by our stockholders, we would expect our noninterest expense to increase due to increased compensation expenses.

Income Tax Expense. There was no income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021 or for the three months ended September 30, 2020, principally due to net operating loss tax carryforwards from prior years. The effective tax rate was 0.00% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 0.00% for the same quarter in 2020.

To provide financial assistance and liquidity to taxpayers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the CARES Act amended the federal income tax rules with regard to the usage of net operating losses (“NOLs”) for corporate taxpayers. The CARES Act allows for the carryback of losses arising in a taxable year beginning after December 31, 2017, and before January 1, 2021, to be carried back to each of the five taxable years preceding the taxable year of the loss.  The CARES Act also temporarily repeals the 80% limitation for NOLs arising in tax years beginning after December 31, 2017 and beginning before January 1, 2021 and carried to another tax year. These NOLs are now permitted to fully offset the loss corporation’s pre-2021 taxable income.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021 and 2020

General. We had net income of $150,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net loss of $111,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of $261,000. The increase in net income resulted from an increase in net interest income of $147,000 and an increase in noninterest income of $195,000, offset, in part, by an increase in noninterest expense of $19,000 and a decrease in the income tax benefit of $62,000.

Interest Income. Interest income decreased $199,000, or 8.6%, to $2.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $2.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This decrease was attributable to decreases in interest on loans receivable of $116,000, or 5.3%, interest on investment securities of $20,000, or 32.8%, and interest on other interest-earning assets of $63,000, or 84.0%. The average balance of loans increased $3.1 million, or 4.3%, to $77.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $73.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and the average yield on loans decreased 36 basis points to 3.56% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 3.92% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The average balance of investment securities increased $791,000, or 16.3%, to $5.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $4.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, while the average yield on investment securities decreased 70 basis points to 0.97% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.67% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The average balance of other interest-earning assets decreased $5.3 million, or 28.3%, to $13.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $18.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and the average yield on other interest-earning assets decreased 41 basis points to 0.12% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 0.53% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Interest Expense. Total interest expense decreased $346,000, or 27.6%, to $906,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $1.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was due to decreases of $217,000, or 27.4%, in interest expense on deposits and $129,000, or 28.1%, in interest expense on advances from the FHLB. The average balance of interest-bearing deposits increased $4.5 million, or 7.9%, to $60.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $56.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and the average cost of interest-bearing deposits in banks decreased 62 basis points to 1.26% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.88% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, resulting from lower market interest rates period to period. The average balance of FHLB advances decreased $3.7 million, or 16.2%, to $19.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $23.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The average cost of these advances decreased 37 basis points to 2.29% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 2.66% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Net Interest Income. Net interest income increased $147,000, or 13.9%, to $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $1.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Average net interest-earning assets decreased $2.1 million period to period. This decrease was due primarily to a decrease in the average balance of other interest-earning assets, offset in part by increases in loans receivable and investment securities. Our interest rate spread increased 36 basis points to 1.41% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.05% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, and our net interest margin increased 23 basis points to 1.67% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.44% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increases in interest rate spread and interest rate margin were primarily the result of interest rates on average interest-bearing liabilities dropping more than interest rates on interest-earning assets during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 versus the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Provision for Loan Losses. There was no provision for loan losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 or for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The allowance for loan losses was $858,000, or 1.16% of total loans, at September 30, 2021, compared to $850,000, or 1.22% of total loans, at December 31, 2020, and $850,000, or 1.24%, of total loans, at September 30, 2020. Classified (substandard, doubtful and loss) loans decreased to $0 at September 30, 2021 from $559,000 at December 31, 2020 and $562,000 at September 30, 2020. There were no non-performing loans at September 30, 2021, December 31, 2020 or September 30, 2020. There were net recoveries of $8,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. There were no charge-offs or recoveries for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

31

Noninterest IncomeNoninterest income increased $195,000, or 28.3%, to $883,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $688,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was due to increases of $21,000, or 39.6%, in service charges and other income and $178,000, or 31.5% in fees on loans sold. The increase was offset, in part, by a decrease of $4,000, or 5.7% in income from life insurance.

Noninterest Expense. Noninterest expense increased $19,000, or 1.0%, to $1.93 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $1.92 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily due to increases of $108,000, or 9.2%, in salaries and employee benefits, resulting primarily from an increase in commissions and related expenses on higher loan volume period to period, in insurance expense $4,000, or 6.6%, and in FDIC deposit insurance premiums and OCC assessments of $1,000, or 2.0%. These increases were offset, in part, by decreases in occupancy expense of $6,000, or 3.8%, in data processing expense $30,000, or 34.9%, in accounting and consulting expense of $26,000, or 18.4%, in legal expense of $16,000, or 28.6%, and in other expenses of $6,000, or 8.6%.

In future periods, if we make grants of awards under our equity incentive plan which was approved by our stockholders, we would expect our noninterest expense to increase due to increased compensation expenses.

Income Tax Expense. There was no income tax expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, principally due to net operating loss tax carryforwards from prior years. There was an income tax benefit of $62,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 resulting from the recordation of expected refunds from the carryback of tax net operating losses as now allowed by the CARES Act. The effective tax rate was 0.00% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to (35.8%) for the same period in 2020.

To provide financial assistance and liquidity to taxpayers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the CARES Act amended the federal income tax rules with regard to the usage of net operating losses (“NOLs”) for corporate taxpayers. The CARES Act allows for the carryback of losses arising in a taxable year beginning after December 31, 2017, and before January 1, 2021, to be carried back to each of the five taxable years preceding the taxable year of the loss.  The CARES Act also temporarily repeals the 80% limitation for NOLs arising in tax years beginning after December 31, 2017 and beginning before January 1, 2021 and carried to another tax year These NOLs are now permitted to fully offset the loss corporation’s pre-2021 taxable income.

Liquidity and Capital Resources. Liquidity describes our ability to meet the financial obligations that arise in the ordinary course of business. Liquidity is primarily needed to meet the borrowing and deposit withdrawal requirements of our customers and to fund current and planned expenditures. Our primary sources of funds are deposits, principal and interest payments on loans and securities and proceeds from the sale of loans. We also have the ability to borrow from the FHLB. At September 30, 2021, we had $18.2 million outstanding in advances from the FHLB, and had the capacity to borrow approximately an additional $19.2 million from the FHLB and an additional $6.6 million on a line of credit with First National Bankers’ Bank, Baton Rouge, Louisiana at this date.

While maturities and scheduled amortization of loans and securities are predictable sources of funds, deposit flows and loan prepayments are greatly influenced by general interest rates, economic conditions, and competition. Our most liquid assets are cash and short-term investments including interest-bearing deposits in banks. The levels of these assets are dependent on our operating, financing, lending, and investing activities during any given period.

Our cash flows are comprised of three primary classifications: cash flows from operating activities, investing activities, and financing activities. Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities was $1.6 million and ($265,000) for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Net cash (used in) investing activities, which consists primarily of net change in loans receivable, net change in interest-bearing deposits in banks and net change in investment securities, was ($1.9 million) and ($2.2 million) for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities, consisting primarily of activity in deposit accounts, advances from Federal Home Loan Bank, advance payments by borrowers for taxes and insurance, and repurchases of common stock, was $4.3 million and ($3.7 million) for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

32

We are committed to maintaining a strong liquidity position. We monitor our liquidity position on a daily basis. We anticipate that we will have sufficient funds to meet our current funding commitments. Based on our deposit retention experience and current pricing strategy, we anticipate that a significant portion of maturing time deposits will be retained.

At September 30, 2021, the Bank exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with a Tier 1 leverage capital level of $19.4 million, or 18.36% of adjusted average total assets, which is above the well-capitalized required level of $5.3 million, or 5.0%; and total risk-based capital of $20.0 million, or 39.93% of risk-weighted assets, which is above the well-capitalized required level of $5.0 million, or 10.0%; and common equity Tier 1 capital of $19.4 million or, 38.68% of risk weighted assets, which is above the well-capitalized required level of $3.3 million, or 6.5% of risk weighted assets. Accordingly, Eureka Homestead was categorized as well capitalized at September 30, 2021. Management is not aware of any conditions or events since the most recent notification that would change our category.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements. At September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we had $5.9 million and $2.0 million of outstanding commitments to originate loans, respectively, all of which represents the balance of remaining funds to be disbursed on construction loans in process. Certificates of deposit that are scheduled to mature in less than one year from September 30, 2021 totaled $17.0 million at September 30, 2021. Management expects that a substantial portion of the maturing certificates of deposit will be renewed. However, if a substantial portion of these deposits is not retained, we may utilize FHLB advances or raise interest rates on deposits to attract new accounts, which may result in higher levels of interest expense. In recent years we have sold loans on an industry-standard, servicing-released basis. At September 30, 2021, there were mortgage loans sold to investors with limited recourse for certain periods after the date of sale totaling $12.1 million at the sale date. Recourse would apply if the borrower(s) default on any payment within the first four months of the mortgage loan and it remains in default for a period of 90 days, or if the mortgage loan prepays in full within 180 days of the sale date. Should an early payment default occur, Eureka Homestead shall, at its sole discretion, repurchase such mortgage loan from the purchaser at its current amortized balance plus the service release premium received or indemnify the purchaser by paying the service release premium received plus $5,000. Should a mortgage loan prepay in full within 180 days of the sale date, Eureka Homestead shall refund to the purchaser the servicing release premium paid. There have been no mortgage loans sold that had an early payment default or that prepaid in full during the recourse period
