First Advantage Bancorp (OTC QB: FABK), the holding company of First Advantage Bank, announced net income of $805 thousand for the first quarter of 2014, or $0.21 per basic share and $0.20 per diluted share, an increase of 69.5% from $475 thousand in the same quarter last year and a 33.4% decline from $1,210 thousand in the prior quarter.
“We are pleased to announce that we have strengthened our management team in the first quarter to better position ourselves for expected growth. The first quarter results indicate solid progress from year-ago levels, and we remain optimistic about our business plan. Loan production continued to be strong in the first quarter, with over $34M in loans booked. Net growth was lower as management selectively opted not to bid for existing loans where a proposed refinancing rate and terms would have not rewarded shareholders commensurate with the risks involved. Still, net loan growth represents an 18.0% increase from the first quarter of 2013,” said Earl O. Bradley, III, Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Bank.
“Both the Clarksville and Nashville economies continue to perform well, and our Nashville expansion continues to provide opportunities for sound lending and growth. We were able to modestly increase loans this quarter with marginal impact on our net interest margin over the prior quarter results, and our return on average equity and return on average assets both showed strong improvement versus year-ago numbers with increases of 72.6% and 50%, respectively, over the same period last year. The Bank remains categorized as ‘Well-Capitalized’ by regulatory standards.”
“Core operating results for the quarter excluding one-time events show positive direction. Compared to the same quarter last year, there were improvements in interest and non-interest income, as well as in expenses.” For further information, visit www.fdic.gov to review regulatory filings from the bank and holding company.

We remain optimistic about the opportunities for growth in both markets, and our business plan has us well-situated to build shareholder value. We were recently recognized by the Small Business Administration as the leading middle Tennessee community bank lender for SBA loans in 2013. Our net interest margin grew eight basis points over the same quarter last year and 11 basis points for the year versus 2012 results, and loan loss provisions have been minimal.
