In addition, during the quarter-ended June 30, 2018, the Company recognized $83,000 of impairment and depreciation expense for assets no longer in use.

For 2018, no gains on investment sales were realized and gains on sales of loans totaled $6,000.

At June 30, 2018, total assets were $73.3 million, compared to $69.7 million at June 30, 2017. During the twelve months ended June 30, 2018, loans outstanding increased $4.6 million, or 10%, to $52.3 million.

Periodic provisions to allowances for loan losses reflect management’s view of risk in the Company’s entire loan portfolio due to a number of dynamic factors, including current economic conditions, quantity of outstanding loans, and loan delinquency trends. Management considered the level of allowances for loan losses at June 30, 2018 adequate to cover probable incurred losses inherent in the loan portfolio at that date.

At June 30, 2018, total deposits were $50.1 million, compared to $50.2 million twelve months earlier. Total borrowings increased to $14.0 million at June 30, 2018, compared to $10.0 million a year earlier.
