CORYDON, Ind., July 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital, Inc. (Nasdaq:FCAP), the holding company for First Harrison Bank (the "Bank"), today reported record net income of $1.5 million or $0.55 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $1.2 million or $0.43 per diluted share for the same period in 2013.

The increase in net income is primarily due to increases in net interest income after provision for loan losses and noninterest income.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $387,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Interest income increased $109,000 when comparing the two periods as the average tax-equivalent yield of interest-earning assets increased from 4.43% for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013 to 4.49% for the same period in 2014. Interest expense decreased $143,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.50% to 0.35% when comparing the same two periods. As a result, the interest-rate spread increased from 3.93% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 to 4.14% for the same period in 2014. The provision for loan losses decreased from $225,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 to $90,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 primarily due to a decrease in impaired loans and a decrease in net charge-offs from $182,000 during the quarter ended June 30, 2013 to $35,000 during the same period in 2014.

Noninterest income increased $99,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013 primarily due to increases in commission income, service charges on deposit accounts and gains on the sale of securities.

Noninterest expenses increased $43,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2013. Compensation and benefits expense increased $112,000 when comparing the two periods primarily due to normal increases in salaries and benefits. This was partially offset by decreases in other operating expenses of $65,000 and professional service fees of $49,000. The decrease in other operating expenses was primarily due to decreased costs associated with the maintenance and disposal of property acquired through foreclosure. The decrease in professional fees is primarily due to a compensation study and an evaluation of the Bank's asset liability model, both of which occurred in 2013.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net income of $2.8 million or $1.02 per diluted share compared to net income of $2.4 million or $0.86 per diluted share for the same period in 2013.   

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $698,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013. Interest income increased $35,000 when comparing the two periods, due to an increase in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 4.44% for 2013 to 4.47% for 2014. Interest expense decreased $303,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.52% to 0.35% when comparing the same two periods and the average balance of the interest-bearing liabilities decreased from $348.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to $338.9 million for the same period in 2014. The provision for loan losses decreased from $475,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to $115,000 for the same period in 2014 as net charge offs decreased from $376,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to a net recovery of $29,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

Noninterest income decreased $84,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease was due to a $162,000 decrease in gains on the sale of loans. This was primarily due to the overall slowdown in mortgage activity in the Bank's primary lending market.

Noninterest expenses increased $20,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, primarily due to an increase in compensation and benefit expenses of $196,000 that was partially offset by a decrease in other operating expenses of $194,000. 

Total assets as of June 30, 2014 were $459.5 million compared to $444.4 million at December 31, 2013. Net loans receivable increased $9.5 million during the first six months of 2014. Deposits also increased $12.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2014. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonaccrual loans, accruing loans 90 days or more past due, troubled debt restructurings on accrual status, and foreclosed real estate) totaled $6.3 million and $7.6 million at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively. 

At June 30, 2014, the Bank was considered well-capitalized under applicable federal regulatory capital guidelines.
