REPUBLIC BANCORP REPORTS NET INCOME UP 324 PERCENT
REPUBLIC BANCORP REPORTS NET INCOME UP 324 PERCENT ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Republic Bancorp Inc.
(NASDAQ-NMS: RBNC) today announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 1992. Net income for the quarter was $2,547,000, an increase of 324 percent over the $601,000 reported for the same period in the prior year.
Primary earnings per share increased from $.09 in the first quarter of 1991, to $.43 in 1992, an increase of 378 percent. The increase in net income is due primarily to two factors. First, a significant increase in single-family mortgage volume resulted in higher non- interest income. Residential mortgage closing volume was $321 million. This compares to $67 million in the first quarter of 1991 and $490 million for all of 1991. This increase in mortgage volume is primarily the result of low relative mortgage interest rates. Non- interest income in the first quarter of 1992 was $5,587,000, up 202 percent over the $1,853,000 reported for the first quarter of 1991. Second, net interest income was $5,036,000 for the first quarter of 1992, up 26 percent over the $3,984,000 reported for the first quarter of 1991. Also, during the first quarter of 1992, Republic sold mortgage- backed securities previously originated as loans and securitized by the company for net after-tax gains of $266,000. The loan loss provision for the first quarter of 1992 was $293,000 compared to $213,000 for the same period in 1991. The company's total assets as of March 31, 1992, were $549 million, compared to $487 million as of March 31, 1991, an increase of 13 percent. Shareholders' equity increased from $34,650,000 at March 31, 1991, to $40,842,000 at March 31, 1992, an increase of 18 percent.
