Farmers & Merchants Bank of Long Beach (OTCBB: FMBL) today reported improved financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

“Profitability in the second quarter continued to reflect a disciplined approach to managing our business amid economic and regulatory challenges for the banking industry,” said Henry Walker, chief executive officer of Farmers & Merchants Bank of Long Beach. “This disciplined approach resulted in a 20% increase in net income, compared with the second quarter last year.”

Income Statement

For the 2011 second quarter, interest income increased to $45.5 million from $45.3 million in the prior-year comparable period. Interest income for the first half of 2011 was $90.7 million compared with $90.6 million reported for the first half of 2010.

Interest expense for the 2011 second quarter declined to $2.5 million from $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2010, mostly related to the declining interest rate environment. Interest expense for the first half of 2011 declined to $5.1 million from $6.5 million reported for the first half of 2010.

Net interest income for the 2011 second quarter increased to $42.9 million from $42.1 million for the second quarter of 2010, and increased to $85.6 million for the first half of 2011, compared with $84.1 million in the six months ended June 30, 2010.

The Bank’s allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans outstanding was 2.72% at June 30, 2011, compared with 2.75% at March 31, 2011.

Non-interest income was $3.4 million for the 2011 second quarter, versus $3.6 million in the second quarter a year ago. Non-interest income was $6.6 million for the first half of 2010, compared with $7.0 million for the first half of 2010.
