SVB&T Corporation, parent company of Springs Valley Bank & Trust Company, is pleased to declare a dividend of $0.85 per share to all shareholders of record as of November 14, 2017, payable on or about December 15, 2017. This is a 13.33% increase over the annual dividend paid in December 2016.
The Corporation recorded unaudited YTD earnings of over $2.6 Million—an 11.33% increase over the same period in 2016. This translates to a YTD Return on Average Assets (ROAA) of 0.95%, Return on Average Equity (ROAE) of 9.66%, and tangible capital ratio of 9.82%. Comparatively, at September 30, 2016, our YTD ROAA, ROAE, and tangible capital ratio were 0.93%, 8.97%, and 10.31%, respectively. Net interest margin continued to contract from year-end 2016 due to funding cost increases and competitive market forces that have put constraints on rates for new loan originations.
The Corporation reported strong total loan growth YTD, which has increased to $285.1 Million (September 30, 2017) from $273.1 Million (December 31, 2016), resulting in an increase in net interest income before provision expense to $9.1 Million through September 30 compared to $8.7 Million through the same period in 2016 (a 3.96% increase).
The Corporation’s YTD income translates to YTD basic earnings per share of $4.62 compared to $4.07—a year-over-year increase of 13.51%.
