Monocacy reports quarterly income
Monocacy Bancshares Inc. -- the parent company of Taneytown Bank and Trust -- reported a net income of $1,9651,329, or $1.50 per share, for the year ended Dec. 31, 1993.
This report compares with $1,952,089, or $1.49 per share, for 1992. Bank officials said the figures have been adjusted to compensate for a two-for-one stock split on Oct. 1, 1993, in conjunction with the formation of Monocacy Bancshares.
For the quarter ending Dec. 31, 1993, the bank realized a net income of $455,987 or 35 cents per share, as compared with $505,181 or 38 cents per share for the last quarter of 1992. Those figures have also been adjusted to account for the October stock split, bank officials said.
Improved net interest income, as loans grew by about 20 percent, and higher levels of noninterest income over the past year increased the bank's profits, bank officials said.
