LINCOLN PARK, N.J., May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Park Bancorp (OTC Bulletin Board: LPBC) (the "Company"), the holding company of Lincoln Park Savings Bank, announced net income of $275,000, or $.16 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to net income of $173,000, or $.10 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. An increase in net income of $102,000 was primarily due to an increase in net interest income, partially offset by a slight decrease in non-interest income, an increase in non-interest expenses, and an increase in income tax expense.

Net interest income increased by $229,000, or 20.8% to $1.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to $1.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, primarily due to an increase of 21 basis points in the net yield on average interest earning assets. During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, provision for loan losses recorded was $32,000 compared to $34,000, during the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The provision in the current quarter was primarily due to reserves required on three impaired loans and for general loan losses. Non-interest expenses increased by $62,000, or 7.6% to $880,000, for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to $818,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, primarily due to minor increases in net occupancy expense, salaries and employee benefits and other miscellaneous expenses.

Non-interest income decreased by $8,000, or 22.2% to $28,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to $36,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, primarily due to a loss of $5,000 on the sale of a held-to maturity security and a decrease of $6,000 in fees and service charges, offset by a small increase in miscellaneous non-interest income.

Income tax expense increased by $59,000 to $172,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $113,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The increase in income tax expense was due to $161,000 increase in pre-tax income.

At March 31, 2014, the Company had total assets of $220.8 million and stockholders' equity of $16.6 million. In addition, the Company had net loans of $73.3 million, total investment securities of $136.4 million, deposits of $109.7 million, and total borrowings of $92.8 million as of March 31, 2014.
