Press Release

 

Ocean Shore Holding Co. Reports 3rd Quarter Earnings

 

Ocean City, New Jersey – October 29, 2013 – Ocean Shore Holding Co. (NASDAQ: OSHC) today announced net income of $1,324,000, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, as compared to $1,192,000, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $3,863,000, or $0.58 per diluted share, as compared to $3,843,000, or $0.57 per diluted share, for the same period in 2012.

 

Ocean Shore Holding Co. (the "Company") is the holding company for Ocean City Home Bank (the "Bank"), a federal savings bank headquartered in Ocean City, New Jersey. The Bank operates a total of twelve full-service banking offices in eastern New Jersey.

 

"Modest loan growth supported by continued deposit generation, favorable asset quality trends and continued expense controls all contributed to solid operating results for the quarter" said Steven E. Brady, President and CEO. “During the quarter we completed the process of redeeming $5 million of our outstanding trust preferred securities by reducing the outstanding balance from $15 million to $10 million. Taking this step reduces our annual interest expense, which will benefit our net interest margin.”

The increase in net interest income in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 was the result of an increase in average interest-earning assets of $70.8 million, a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities of 19 basis points to 1.02% and a decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities of $25.3 million offset by a decrease of 57 basis points in the average yield on interest-earning assets to 4.06%

The decrease in net interest income for the nine month period was the result of a decrease of 62 basis points in the average yield on interest-earning assets to 4.14% and an increase in average interest-bearing liabilities of $1.1 million. These changes were partially offset by a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities of 23 basis points to 1.04% and an increase in the average interest-earning assets of $53.7 million.
