Net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $3.3 million in 2013, an increase of 4.94% over 2012 net income of $3.2 million. On a per share basis, net income was $1.10 in 2013 versus 1.04 in 2012.

Higher net income in 2013 is attributable to reductions in the provision for loan losses, other expenses and federal income taxes, offset by decreases in net interest income and net realized gains on securities sales.
