JNES Announces 1st Quarter 2020 Earnings

JONESTOWN, Pa., May 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jonestown Bank & Trust Co. (JBT) - (OTC Pink: JNES) reported earnings of $771,000 or $0.32 per share for the first quarter of 2020, down 37.4% from $1,231,000 or $0.52 per share in the prior year.  “Although the quarter started off strong, the effects of the COVID-19 crisis substantially impacted our activity levels and results.  We made a $704,000 provision to the allowance for loan losses for the quarter which was a dramatic increase from the $160,000 the year before and substantially impacted earnings.  The provision was driven by our growth, an increase in charged-off loans, and the escalating unemployment rate,” said President & CEO, Troy A. Peters.
