Total assets increased $151.1 million, or 42.4%, to $507.7 million at September 30, 2020, from $356.6 million at September 30, 2019. The growth in total assets was primarily due to increases of $61.1 million in loans held for sale, $67.2 million in loans receivable, $19.9 million in cash and cash equivalents offset by a decrease of $3.6 million in available-for-sale securities. Included in total assets at September 30, 2020 and 2019 are right-of-use assets of $7.9 million and $5.8 million as part of the adoption of ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842).

The increase in total liabilities was primarily from a $57.7 million increase in advances from the PPPLF, $86.5 million increase in deposits, $2.4 million in other liabilities and $2.3 million in operating lease liabilities offset by a $2.1 million decrease in securities sold under agreements to repurchase. Deposits increased $86.5 million between September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 primarily as a result of a $103.6 million increase in our core deposits offset by $17.1 million decrease in certificates of deposit.

Net Interest Income:

Net interest income increased $744,000 to $2.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, from $2.1 million for quarter ended September 30, 2019. The increase reflected a $21.2 million increase in our net interest-earning assets, which increased to $67.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 from $46.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Our net interest-earning assets increased $17.3 million to $61.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from $44.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Provision for loan losses:

Provision for loan losses increased by $180,000 to $424,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 from $244,000 during the quarter ended September 30, 2019 primarily as result of net charge-offs of $360,000 related to certain medical education loans during the three months ended September 30, 2020. During the quarter ended September 30, 2019, we recorded net charge-offs of $92,000. Provision for loan losses increased by $213,000 to $985,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from $772,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, total charge-offs of $514,000 recorded and $1,000 of recoveries were received compared to total charge-offs of $398,000 were recorded and $4,000 of recoveries were received during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Due to continued uncertainty of the economic conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company increased the qualitative factors in the calculation of the allowance for loan losses. The Company will continue to monitor and additional adjustment to the allowance for loan losses may be necessary.

Non-Interest Income:

Non-interest income was $6.2 million and $12.3 million for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, compared to $2.2 million and $5.1 million for the same periods in 2019. The increase in non-interest income of $4.0 million to $6.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to $2.2 million for the same period in 2019 was primarily due to $1.9 million in change in fair value of loans held for sale, $1.3 million increase in the gain on sale of loans, net, and an $838,000 increase on gain on derivative instruments. The increase in non-interest income of $7.2 million to $12.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from $5.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was primarily a $4.0 million increase in the gain on sale of loans, net, $1.9 million in change in fair value of loans held for sale, and an $1.1 million increase on gain on derivative instruments.

The increase for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to the three months of September 30, 2019, was primarily as a result of an increase of $1.5 million in salaries and employee benefits, $405,000 in other expenses and $117,000 in data processing related operations costs. Salaries and employee benefits increased as full time equivalent (FTE) employees increased to 118 as of September 30, 2020 from 95 as of September 30, 2019 primarily as a result of the expansion of the Company’s lending and business banking operations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the increase was primarily a result of additional salaries and employee benefits of $2.8 million, $856,000 in other expenses and $216,000 in data processing related operations costs.
