Results of Operations:

Net interest income increased $4.6M, or 29.0% for the third quarter of 2019, and $18.5M or 40.8% and for the nine months ended September 30, contrast to the same periods of 2018.  Interest income increased $6.1M, or 34.3% for the third quarter of 2019 and $23.6M or 47.2% for the nine-month period ended September 30.  Average earning assets increased $487.7M for the third quarter of 2019 and $519.5M for the nine-month period ended September 30.  The increase in average earning assets resulted in $5.6M and $18.6M of the increase in interest income, for the three and nine-month periods, respectively.  Earning asset yields increased 14 basis points for the third quarter and 45 basis points for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019, accounting for $550 thousand and $5.0M increase in interest income.  Loan yields were influenced by the accretion of UCB related loan purchase accounting adjustments of ($209) thousand for the quarter and $1.8M year-to-date.  During the third quarter, we automated our accretion model related to the purchase accounting adjustments of UCB loans and consequently reviewed our assumptions.  Through that process, we determined that we needed to adjust the speed of accretion.  Accordingly, we made an adjustment during the quarter of ($209) thousand, which reduced our margin to 4.12%.  We estimate that the accretion impact on future quarters will be about a positive 15 basis points.

Interest expense increased $1.5M, or 74.8%, for the third quarter of 2019 and $5.0M, or 109.5%, for the nine months ended September 30 contrast to the same periods of 2018.  The cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased 25 basis points and 32 basis points, respectively. The increase in interest expense is Because of both a raise in average balances and a raise in rates.  Average balances for the third quarter increased $340.9M, resulting in $653 thousand of the increase, and $378.3M for the nine-month period, resulting in $2.1M of the increase.  The increase in rate accounted for $890 thousand and $2.9M of the increase in interest expense.
