Highlight of Business Operations:
Non-interest expense totaled $2.8 million for the first quarter of 2009, up $328 thousand, or 13.13%, from the first quarter a year ago. A large portion of the increase was in compensation and benefits, which increased by $179 thousand, or 12.37%, in the first quarter of 2009 compared to the same quarter in 2008. Approximately $137 thousand of the increase in compensation and benefits related to annual pay increases and addition of experienced management, including a Chief Operating Officer and a Vice President for Loan Originations who were both hired during the first quarter of 2009. Other significant increases in non-interest expense between first quarters include a $70 thousand increase in professional services expense, of which $62 thousand was due to higher legal expenses, and a $39 thousand increase in other expense, primarily due to an $85 thousand increase in FDIC insurance premium assessments which was partially offset by decreases in donations, sponsorships and promotions. Further increases in FDIC insurance premium assessments are expected as the FDIC replenishes the insurance fund for the increasing number of bank failures which has depleted the insurance fund.
At March 31, 2009, assets totaled $438.7 million, up $30.8 million, or 7.54%, from year-end 2008. During the first quarter of 2009, net loans, including loans held for sale, increased $27.5 million, or 7.68%, and cash and cash equivalents increased $4.2 million, while securities available for sale and held to maturity decreased $1.3 million.
Loan originations for the three months ended March 31, 2009 totaled $39.4 million, up $1.6 million, or 4.23%, from $37.8 million for the same period a year ago. Loan repayments, including loan sales, amounted to $11.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009, down $2.0 million, or 14.49%, from $13.8 million for the same period a year ago.
Deposits totaled $323.8 million at March 31, 2009, up $33.9 million, or 11.70%, from year-end 2008. During the first quarter of 2009, our core deposits (NOW, demand, money market and passbook accounts) increased $29.8 million and our certificates of deposit increased $2.9 million. Additionally, brokered deposits grew $1.2 million during 2009. A significant portion of the increase in our core deposits was from our online NOW account. At March 31, 2009, core deposits represented 44.45% of total deposits compared to 39.38% at December 31, 2008, and brokered deposits represented 25.22% of total deposits compared to 27.75% at December 31, 2008.
Non-performing assets, consisting of non-accrual and delinquent loans 90 or more days past due, at March 31, 2009 were $5.8 million, or 1.32% of total assets, compared to $3.5 million, or 0.85% of total assets, at December 31, 2008. Non-accrual loans at March 31, 2009 consisted of $2.3 million of commercial real estate loans, $2.2 million of single-family residential real estate loans, $1.2 million of multi-family residential real estate loans and $0.1 million of unsecured consumer loans. This compares to $3.1 million of commercial real estate loans, $0.2 million of multi-family residential real estate loans and $0.2 million of commercial and unsecured consumer loans at December 31, 2008.
The Bank performed an impairment analysis for all non-accrual loans, and recorded specific loss allocations for impaired loans in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No.114, Accounting by Creditors for Impairment of a Loan. The Bank increased specific loss allocations for impaired loans by $0.4 million during the quarter. The increase in the specific loss allocations is mainly related to two single-family residential loans totaling $2.0 million and one church loan totaling $1.3 million. The loans are non-performing and the recent appraisal of the underlying collaterals reflected a decrease in values, and the Bank accordingly allocated $0.4 million of specific loss allocations. Six loans held for sale totaling $6.7 million, with a specific valuation allowance of $365 thousand, were considered impaired as of March 31, 2009. This compares to two loans held for sale totaling $1.2 million, with a specific valuation allowance of $260 thousand, were considered impaired as of December 31, 2008. The Bank had no loans in foreclosure or REO (real estate owned) properties at March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008.
