First Defiance Financial Corp. net income $32.3 million.
DEFIANCE, OHIO: First Defiance Financial Corp. said its net income for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, totaled $32.3 million, or $3.22 per diluted common share.
The fourth quarter of 2017 results included an increase of $428,000 pre-tax ($278,000 after-tax), or $0.03 per diluted share from changing trust revenues to accrual basis accounting and securities gains of $160,000 pre-tax ($104,000 after-tax), or $0.01 per diluted share. For the fourth quarter of 2017, First Defiance earned $9.4 million, or $0.92 per diluted common share compared to $7.4 million or $0.81 per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2016.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted that required the Company to revalue its deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities as of December 31, 2017, to account for the future impact of the lower corporate tax rate on these deferred amounts. As a result of this revaluation, an increase to tax expense and a reduction to earnings of $154,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, negatively impacted the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in tax expense reflects the company's current best estimate, and as information becomes available, the company may update this estimate.
First Defiance's non-interest income for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $9.9 million compared to $8.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in total non-interest income was largely due to the inclusion of operations from the CSB and Corporate One Benefits Agency, Inc. ("Corporate One") mergers completed in 2017. In addition, the fourth quarter of 2017 included gains of $160,000 from the sale of securities and an increase in trust revenues of $428,000 attributable to a change to accrual basis accounting.
