First Defiance Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: FDEF) announced today its unaudited financial results for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2019. Net income for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, totaled $13.2 million, or $0.66 per diluted common share compared to $11.3 million or $0.55 per diluted common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, totaled $36.9 million, or $1.85 per diluted common share compared to $34.2 million or $1.67 per diluted common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The year-to-year comparison is impacted by the current year’s results, including merger-related costs, which had an after tax cost of $427,000, or $0.02 per diluted share.

“Our third quarter results reflect our company’s continued high financial performance,” said Donald P. Hileman, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Defiance Financial Corp. “With earnings per share up 20% from the third quarter last year, our shareholders were delivered excellent results as we grew our balance sheet and maintained strong profitability.”

Net Interest Income up Compared to Third Quarter 2018

Net interest income of $28.9 million in the third quarter of 2019 was up from $27.5 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to the growth in earning assets offset partly by compression in the net interest margin versus the third quarter last year. The net interest margin was 3.88% for the third quarter of 2019, down from 4.03% in the second quarter of 2019 and 4.00% in the third quarter of 2018. Yield on interest earning assets increased by 15 basis points, to 4.78% in the third quarter of 2019 from 4.63% in the third quarter of 2018. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased by 35 basis points in the third quarter of 2019 to 1.20% from 0.85% in the third quarter of 2018.

“Our solid loan and core deposit growth helped generate growth in net interest income despite margin compression,” said Hileman. “Year-to-date loan growth was 6.6% annualized while deposit growth was 7.1%. This growth combined with a net interest margin that remains healthy for the quarter produced a 5% increase in our net interest income over the third quarter last year.”

Non-Interest Income up from Third Quarter 2018

First Defiance’s non-interest income for the third quarter of 2019 was $11.8 million compared with $9.9 million in the third quarter of 2018. The third quarter of 2019 included gains of $11,000 from the sale of securities compared to gains of $76,000 in the third quarter of 2018. Results for the third quarter of 2019 included $325,000 of BOLI income death benefit whereas the third quarter of 2018 included no BOLI income death benefit. Total income from BOLI was $783,000 in the third quarter of 2019, up from $399,000 in the third quarter of 2018.
