In addition, net income was positively impacted by a $1.2 million, or 10.6%, increase in net interest income which was the result of a $39.8 million increase in average interest-earning assets from the prior year period combined with an increase in the yield on interest-earning assets.

Our business bankers, mortgage originators, and retail staff across our markets continue to identify opportunities and win business by executing a consultative approach to customer relationships and by understanding the specific needs of each community and customer,” said Ralph J. Lober, II, President and Chief Executive Officer. “These efforts are reflected in a $44.0 million, or 14.5%, increase in gross loans outstanding and a $55.2 million, or 13.7%, increase in deposits over the twelve months ended March 31, 2019. Further, residential mortgage production for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 increased 29% over the same prior year period. Low nonaccrual and loan delinquencies continue to reflect strong economic activity and employment levels; however, the flattening, and at times, inverted yield curve continues to reduce the expected increase in net interest income and margin,” he added. Net interest income for the third fiscal quarter of 2019 increased by $275 thousand, or 6.9%, compared to the same period last year. The net interest margin was 3.57% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 3.72% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

Other income increased by $58 thousand, or 7.2%, to $860 thousand for the third quarter of fiscal year 2019 compared with $802 thousand for the same period last year. The increase in other income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2019 was primarily a result of increases in service charges on deposit accounts and debit card interchange income.Other expenses increased by $231 thousand, or 6.5%, for the third fiscal quarter of 2019 from the same period last year.
