Net income increases at Monocacy Bancshares
Monocacy Bancshares Inc., the parent company of Taneytown Bank and Trust, reports a net income of $704,814 for the quarter that ended Sept. 30.
The income, which equals 54 cents per share, represents a 36 percent increase over the comparable quarter last year, said Frank W. Neubauer, president and chief executive officer.
Net income for the nine months that ended Sept. 30 was $1,791,739, or $1.37 per share, Mr. Neubauer said. This is a 19 percent increase compared with the same period in 1993, which was $1,505,342, or $1.15 per share, he said.
Bank officers said the performance can be attributed to improved net interest income as net loans grew by about 28 percent from Sept. 30, 1993. Strong but lower levels of noninterest revenue also helped the increase.
The loan growth from Sept. 30, 1993, was the primary reason total assets reached $211,693,714 a year later, Mr. Neubauer said. This is a high for the company, he said.
A certificate of deposit promotion caused deposits to increase by 11 percent from Sept. 30, 1993, he said. In other Monocacy news, the company has declared a dividend of .08 cents per share which is payable on Oct. 25 to stockholders of record on Oct. 11.
This is a 33 percent increase in dividends.
In addition, shareholders of Monocacy can participate in a new Dividend Reinvestment Plan. The enrollment process will begin in November. The plan will allow shareholders to reinvest cash dividends, as well as voluntary cash, to buy shares of Monocacy Bancshares.
