ATHENS, Tenn., Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Athens Bancshares Corporation (OTC QX: AFCB – news) (the “Company”), the holding company for Athens Federal Community Bank, National Association (the “Bank”), today announced its results of operations for the three months and the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
The Company’s net income for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $1.0 million or $0.57 per diluted share, compared to net income of $843,000 or $0.47 per diluted share for the same period in 2015. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016 net income was $2.4 million or $1.34 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.2 million or $1.23 per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.
The Bank completed its acquisition of four branches from Atlantic Capital Bank, N.A. on April 1, 2016. In addition to the increases from assumed customer deposits of approximately $89.0 million and the $13.9 million in loans and other assets, one-time and continuing non-interest expenses increased. The Bank’s existing Sweetwater, Tennessee branch was combined with the acquired Sweetwater, Tennessee branch in late June, 2016. While we anticipate this combination will reduce operating expenses over time, it will take some time for full utilization of the acquired assets and liabilities from the acquisition.
Total assets increased $102.5 million to $426.3 million at September 30, 2016, compared to $323.8 million at December 31, 2015. The Bank was considered well-capitalized under applicable federal regulatory capital guidelines at September 30, 2016.
