SMITHFIELD, N.C., July 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KS Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC Pink: KSBI), parent company of KS Bank, Inc. (the “Bank”), announced unaudited results for the second quarter of 2021.

The Company reported net income of $1,519,000 or $1.37 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2021, an increase of 56.4% compared to net income of $971,000 or $0.88 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2020. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company reported net income of $3.0 million, or $2.69 per diluted share compared to $1.9 million, or $1.71 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Net interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2021, was $4.4 million as compared to $3.6 million for the comparable period in 2020. Noninterest income for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was $708,000, compared to $681,000 for the comparable period ended June 30, 2020. Noninterest expense was $3.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared $3.0 million in the comparable period in 2020. The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $123,000 during the second quarter 2021, compared to $70,000 in the second quarter of 2020.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, net interest income before the provision for loan losses was $8.6 million, compared to $7.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Noninterest income and expenses remain stable for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. Noninterest income was $1.4 million and noninterest expense was $5.7 million.

The Company’s unaudited consolidated total assets increased $47.8 million, to $533.6 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $485.8 million at December 31, 2020. Net loan balances decreased by $23.4 million, to $345.2 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $368.6 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease in loans was primarily due to forgiveness of payroll protection plan loans (PPP). The balance of the first round PPP loans at June 30, 2021 was $2.0 million compared to $26.5 million at December 31, 2020. The Bank participated in the second around of PPP loans providing an additional $9.0 million in PPP loans that was reflected in the loan balance at June 30, 2021. The Company’s investment securities totaled $79.9 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $71.7 million at December 31, 2020. Total deposits increased $49.6 million or 12.3% to $452.1 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $402.5 million at December 31, 2020. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, there was a $50.8 million increase in core deposits. Total stockholders’ equity increased $2.2 million or 6.95% from $32.0 million at December 31, 2020 to $34.2 million at June 30, 2021.

Nonperforming assets consisted of $557,000 nonaccrual loans at June 30, 2021, representing less than 0.50% of the Company’s total assets. The Company had $621,000 foreclosed real estate owned at June 30, 2021. The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2021 totaled $4.9 million, or 1.40% of total loans.

Commenting on the second quarter results, Harold Keen, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank, stated, “Second quarter balance sheet growth continued with the increase in low cost demand demand deposits and profit increases were fueled by loan interest from Payroll Protection Loans (PPP). Loan growth excluding PPP was somewhat flat during the second quarter, but a strong pipeline of loans fueled by late spring economic activity is encouraging for current and future periods. We are extremely please that our Board of Directors approved a thirty-three (33) percent increase in dividends payable for the second quarter. This highlights the positive results for the first six months of 2021.”

In addition, the Company announced today that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.16 per share for stockholders of record as of July 30, 2021 with payment to be made on August 9, 2021.

The minimum levels to be considered well capitalized for each of these ratios are 10.0%, 8.0%, 6.5%, and 5.0%, respectively.
