Third Quarter 2022 Highlights
Forward Looking Statements
Certain statements appearing herein which are not historical in nature are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements refer to a future period or periods, reflecting management’s current views as to likely future developments, and use words “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” or similar terms. Because forward-looking statements involve certain risks, uncertainties and other factors over which Franklin Financial Services Corporation has no direct control, actual results could differ materially from those contemplated in such statements. These factors include (but are not limited to) the following: general economic conditions particularly with regard to the negative impact of severe, wide-ranging and continuing disruptions caused by the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and responses thereto, changes in interest rates, changes in the Corporation’s cost of funds, changes in government monetary policy, changes in government regulation and taxation of financial institutions, changes in the rate of inflation, changes in technology, the intensification of competition within the Corporation’s market area, and other similar factors.
We caution readers not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. They only reflect management’s analysis as of this date. The Corporation does not revise or update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or changed circumstances. Please carefully review the risk factors described in other documents the Corporation files from time to time with the SEC, including the Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and any Current Reports on Form 8-K.
We were pleased to see growth in both loans outstanding and our net interest margin (NIM) during the third quarter which resulted in an increase in net income when comparing linked quarters. Deposit balances continued to grow, though we do expect to see the growth in deposits level off or even contract slightly. As we move forward, we will be focused on our interest rate strategies to protect and enhance NIM as we expect to see deposit rates increase over the next four quarters.
We are also focused on the effect that higher market interest rates are having on the accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) component of our balance sheet. Higher market interest rates have produced a negative AOCI balance which affects book capital. While the negative AOCI does not impact our regulatory capital measurements, and the Bank remains well capitalized under regulatory standards, we continue to monitor this position.
The third quarter of 2022 was also noteworthy as the company completed its move to a new headquarters in Chambersburg and went live with Salesforce. Both should bring about enhanced communication between team members to the ultimate benefit of our customers and shareholders.
