RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - THREE AND TWELVE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2010 AND 2009

The increase in net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 reflected a slight increase of $91,000 in net interest income, a $36,000 decrease in the provision for loan losses and a $342,000 increase in noninterest income, partially offset by a $250,000 increase in noninterest expense and a $62,000 increase in income tax expense.

Net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 was $524,000 compared to net income of $493,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009. Net interest income increased by $382,000 to $8.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 from $7.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, noninterest income increased $537,000 and income tax expense decreased by $55,000. In contrast, noninterest expense increased by $173,000 and our provision for loan losses increased by $770,000 during 2010.

Net interest income increased by $91,000, or 4.4%, to $2.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 from $2.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2009, as our net interest-earning assets increased to $28.2 million from $16.4 million. Partially offsetting the increase in net interest-earning assets was a 5 basis point decrease in our net interest rate spread to 3.68% from 3.73%, and a 3 basis point decrease in our net interest margin to 3.80% from 3.83%. 

We recorded a provision for loan losses of $152,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 compared to a provision for loan losses of $188,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2009.  

Noninterest income increased by $342,000, or 55.6%, to $957,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 from $615,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. The increase was due primarily to an increase in gains from the sale of securities and mortgage loans.

Noninterest expense increased by $250,000, or 11.3%, to $2.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 from $2.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in compensation, including mortgage commissions.

Net interest income increased by $382,000, or 4.9%, to $8.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 from $7.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, as our net interest-earning assets increased to $18.4 million from $14.1 million. This impact was partially offset by a decrease in our interest rate spread of 16 basis points to 3.64% from 3.80%, and a decrease in our net interest margin of 17 basis points to 3.73% from 3.90%.

We recorded a provision for loan losses of $1.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 and a provision for loan losses of $687,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009. At December 31, 2010, nonperforming loans (including troubled debt restructurings not included in nonaccrual loans), totaled $5.4 million, or 2.8% of total loans, as compared to $3.4 million, or 2.0% of total loans, at December 31, 2009. The allowance for loan losses to total loans receivable increased to 1.11% at December 31, 2010 as compared to 0.55% at December 31, 2009. 

Noninterest income increased by $537,000, or 22.6%, to $2.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 from $2.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009. The increase was primarily due to an increase in gains from the sale of securities and mortgage loans.

Noninterest expense increased by $173,000, or 2.0%, to $8.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 from $8.7 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in compensation and benefits, including mortgage commissions, higher audit fees and outside consulting fees. 

COMPARISON OF FINANCIAL CONDITION DATA - DECEMBER 31, 2010 AND DECEMBER 31, 2009

Total assets increased by $30.7 million, or 14.7%, to $238.8 million at December 31, 2010 from $208.1 million at December 31, 2009. The increase was primarily the result of an increase in securities and loans.

Securities classified as available for sale increased by $8.6 million, or 63.6%, to $22.1 million at December 31, 2010 from $13.5 million at December 31, 2009, primarily as a result of investment of a portion of the proceeds from sale of common stock. At December 31, 2010, securities classified as available for sale consisted of collateralized mortgage obligations issued by government-sponsored enterprises, mortgage-backed securities, municipal obligations and agency securities.

Net loans increased by $20.6 million, or 12.0%, to $191.1 million at December 31, 2010 from $170.5 million at December 31, 2009, as a result of funds provided by sale of our common stock and new customer deposits.  Our one- to four-family residential mortgage loans increased $15.8 million to $140.3 million at December 31, 2010 from $124.5 million at December 31, 2009, due primarily to new loan originations. In addition, our commercial real estate portfolio increased $6.7 million to $29.3 million at December 31, 2010. In contrast, consumer loans decreased $2.1 million to $20.4 million at December 31, 2010 from $22.5 million at December 31, 2009.

Deposits increased by $15.6 million, or 9.1%, to $188.2 million at December 31, 2010 from $172.6 million at December 31, 2009. The increase resulted primarily from deposit inflows from existing customers, as well as commercial deposit growth.

Federal Home Loan Bank advances remained unchanged at $16.0 million at December 31, 2010. 

Stockholders' equity was $32.1 million and $17.3 million at December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2010, we recorded net income of $524,000 and raised $14.5 million from our stock offering completed in October 2010, partially offset by accumulated other comprehensive losses of $172,000 during 2010.

On October 29, 2010, Share Plus Federal Bank completed its conversion from a federal mutual savings bank to a capital stock savings bank. A new holding company, SP Bancorp, Inc., was established as part of the conversion. The public offering was consummated through the sale and issuance by SP Bancorp, Inc. of 1,725,000 shares of common stock at $10 per share. Net proceeds of $14.5 million were raised in the stock offering, after deduction of conversion costs of $1.9 million and excluding $828,000 which was loaned by the Company to a trust for the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (the "ESOP"). The Bank's ESOP is authorized to purchase up to 138,000 shares of common stock. The ESOP purchased 67,750 of those shares in the offering and 16,030 in the open market through December 31, 2010. The remaining 54,220 shares are expected to be purchased in the near term.
