Jeffersonville Bancorp announces earnings

JEFFERSONVILLE, NY — Jeffersonville Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQB - JFBC) announced its second quarter net income of $1,264,000 or $0.30 per share compared to $2,086,000 or $0.49 per share for the same quarter in 2019. The decrease in quarterly net income compared to 2019 of $822,000 was primarily attributable to a decrease in interest income of $836,000, a decrease in total non-interest income of $185,000 and an increase in the provision for loan losses of $150,000, partially offset by a decrease in income tax expense of $242,000 and a decrease in total non-interest expense of $97,000 compared to the same period in 2019.

A cash dividend in the amount of fifteen cents ($0.15) per share on the common stock of the company was declared at the August 11 meeting of the Board of Directors.  The dividend is payable on Tuesday, September 1 to stockholders of record at the close of business on August 24.

Jeffersonville Bancorp is a one-bank holding company, which owns all the capital stock of Jeff Bank.
