PITTSBURGH, May 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - SSB Bancorp, Inc (OTC: SSBP – news) (the "Company"), the holding company for SSB Bank (the "Bank"), today announced the Company's unaudited, consolidated results of operations for the four months ended April 30, 2022.
Total assets increased $9.6 million to $244.5 million at April 30, 2022, from $234.9 million at December 31, 2021. The increase in assets was due to an increase in deposits of $13.6 million. Net loans decreased over the same period due to the payoffs of Paycheck Protection Program loans totaling $5.6 million.
Net earnings for the four months ended April 30, 2022, was $422,000 or $0.20 per basic and diluted share, compared to net earnings of $253,000 or $0.12 per basic and diluted share for the comparable four months of the prior year.
Total interest and fee income increased by $249,000, or 8.57%, when comparing the results of the four months ended April 30, 2022, with the four months ended April 30, 2021. This is mainly due to the increase in average net loans to $195.4 million from $179.7 million when comparing the two periods.
Interest expense decreased $201,000, or 22.6%, to $689,000 in the four months ended April 30, 2022, from $890,000 in the four months ended April 30, 2021. The decrease in interest expense is due to lower costs of deposits and borrowings due to market interest rates. The volume of deposits increased by $12.9 million when comparing the two periods, while interest expense from deposits dropped by $135,000, or 20.0%.
Noninterest income has dropped by $96,000, or 22.2% to $337,000 from $433,000 when comparing the four months ended April 30, 2022, with the four months ended April 30, 2021. With the rise in market interest rates, mortgage loan production has decreased, and has resulted in a decrease in gain on sale of loans of $195,000 when comparing the two periods. Offsetting this decrease is the increase in payment processing sponsorship fees of $71,000 when comparing the two periods.
Noninterest expense increased by $83,000, or 4.0% to $2.1 million. This was mainly due to the increase in data processing expense of $49,000 due to an increase in payment network activity when comparing the four months ended April 30, 2022, with the four months ended April 30, 2021.
