Globe Newswire

JEFFERSONVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jeffersonville Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQB:JFBC) announced today fourth quarter net income of $1,171,000 or $0.28 per share compared to $3,188,000 or $0.75 per share for the same quarter in 2014. The decrease in quarterly net income was primarily due to a non-recurring decrease in employee benefits expense of $3,347,000 realized in the fourth quarter of 2014 from the elimination of the Bank’s post retirement benefit plan, partially offset by corresponding income tax expense of $1,342,000. Excluding that event, quarterly net income decreased by $12,000 due to an increase in occupancy expense of $212,000 and an increase in other non-interest expense of $74,000, partially offset by a reduction in foreclosed real estate expense of $362,000. 

For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company earned net income of $4,708,000 or $1.11 per share compared to $6,995,000 or $1.65 per share for the same period in 2014.
