For the same period last year, the Company reported net income of $91,000 or $.08 per share. Net income was higher, compared to third quarter 2017 results, due to an increase in total interest income, lower provisions for loan losses and lower income tax expense.

Total interest income was higher by $32,000 or 4%, while interest expense increased $17,000 or 16% during the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Loan loss provisions for third quarter 2018 totaled $15,000. Loan loss provisions were $20,000 for the same period a year earlier. A regular assessment of loan loss allowance adequacy indicated that these provisions were necessary to maintain an appropriate allowance level. Net loan charge-offs totaled less than $1,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018, compared to approximately $1,000 for third quarter 2017. Changes in volume, composition and quality of the loan portfolio, as well as actual loan loss experience, will influence the need for future loss provisions.

Net loan charge-offs totaled $34,000 during the first three quarters of fiscal 2018, compared to $46,000 for the year-earlier period.
