The provision for loan losses was $198 thousand for the period, $605 thousand less than in 2013. Noninterest income remained steady at $2.4 million, while noninterest expense increased 1.4% due primarily to increases in net occupancy expense. Diluted earnings per share increased to $.44 in 2014 from $.38 in 2013.

GAAP versus Non-GAAP Disclosure - The Corporation supplements its traditional GAAP measurements with Non-GAAP measurements. The Non-GAAP measurements include Return on Average Tangible Assets, Return on Average Tangible Equity, Tangible Book Value and Tangible Common Equity ratio. As a result of merger transactions, intangible assets (primarily goodwill, core deposit intangibles and customer list) were created. The Non-GAAP disclosures are intended to eliminate the effects of the intangible assets and allow for better comparisons to periods when such assets did not exist. However, not all companies use the same calculation methods for the same non-GAAP measurements and therefore may not be comparable. The following table shows the adjustments made between the GAAP and NON-GAAP measurements:

Comparison of the three months ended March 31, 2014 to the three months ended March 31, 2013:

Net Interest Income

The most important source of the Corporation's earnings is net interest income, which is defined as the difference between income on interest-earning assets and the expense of interest-bearing liabilities supporting those assets. Principal categories of interest-earning assets are loans and securities, while deposits, securities sold under agreements to repurchase (Repos), short-term borrowings and long-term debt are the principal categories of interest-bearing liabilities. Demand deposits enhance net interest income because they are noninterest-bearing deposits. For the purpose of this discussion, balance sheet items refer to the average balance for the year and net interest income is adjusted to a fully taxable-equivalent basis. This tax-equivalent adjustment facilitates performance comparisons between taxable and tax-free assets by increasing the tax-free income by an amount equivalent to the Federal income taxes that would have been paid if this income were taxable at the Corporation's 34% Federal statutory rate.

Tax equivalent net interest income for the first quarter of 2014 decreased $47 thousand quarter over quarter. Average interest-earning assets decreased $40.2 million from 2013, and the yield on these assets decreased by 3 basis points. The average balance of investment securities increased $25.1 million while average loans decreased $28.6 million (4.0%) quarter over quarter. Average mortgage loans increased $9.3 million, but the increase was offset by a decrease in the average balance of commercial loans and consumer loans. Average commercial loans decreased $33.4 million, as commercial loans continue to run-off. Average consumer loans, including home equity loans, decreased $4.6 million, as consumers continue to borrow less.

Interest expense was $830 thousand for the first quarter, a decrease of $412 thousand from the 2013 total of $1.2 million. Average interest-bearing liabilities decreased $47.4 million to $783.4 million for 2014 from an average balance of $830.8 million in 2013. The average cost of these liabilities decreased from .61% in 2013 to .43% in 2014. Average interest-bearing deposits decreased $18.2 million, due to decreases in time deposits ($66.0 million). The cost of interest-bearing deposits decreased from .58% to .38%. Securities sold under agreements to repurchase (Repos) decreased $29.2 million on average over the prior year quarter while the average rate remained constant at .15% in both years. The average balance of long-term debt decreased by $19 thousand, due to amortizations.

The changes in the balance sheet and interest rates resulted in a decrease in tax equivalent net interest income of $47 thousand to $8.2 million in 2014 compared to $8.3 million in 2013. This decrease was due to an $87 thousand decrease from lower volume, which was partially offset by a $40 thousand increase in rates.

The Bank's net interest margin increased from 3.45% in 2013 to 3.57% in 2014. The increase in the net interest margin is the result of a decrease in the rate on interest-earning assets of 3 basis points, compared to a larger decrease in the yield on interest-bearing liabilities of 18 basis points.


The following table presents average balances, tax-equivalent (T/E) interest income, and yields earned or rates paid on the assets or liabilities. All nontaxable interest income has been adjusted to a tax-equivalent basis using a tax rate of 34%.

Provision for Loan Losses

For 2014, the Bank recorded net charge-offs of $155 thousand compared to $239 thousand in 2013. The charge-offs were offset by the first quarter provision expense of $198 thousand and as a result, the allowance for loan losses (ALL) increased $43 thousand over year-end 2013. For more information refer to the Loan Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses discussion in the Financial Condition section.

Noninterest Income

For the first quarter of 2014, noninterest income decreased $4 thousand from the same period in 2013. Investment and trust service fees increased due to higher recurring asset management fees and higher estate fees. Loan service charges decreased as mortgage production declined in 2014 compared to 2013, and from lower service charges on commercial and consumer loans. Mortgage banking fees increased, as 2014 had a reversal of previously recorded impairment charges compared to an impairment charge in the prior year, as well as lower amortization costs in 2014 compared to 2013. Deposit service charges increased due to higher account analysis fees and higher retail and commercial overdraft fees. Other service charges and fees increased primarily due to increases in ATM fees, while debit card income also increased. Other real estate owned decreased from prior year due to a write-down in 2014, while no write-downs were taken in 2013. No securities gains or other than temporary impairment charges were recorded during either period.

The following table presents a comparison of noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013:

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2014 increased $106 thousand compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in salaries and benefits was primarily due to annual salary adjustments ($142 thousand) and an incentive program ($135 thousand), but these increases were partially offset by a $199 thousand decrease in health insurance and a $65 thousand decrease in pension expense. Health insurance expense declined due to lower claims expense during the quarter from the Bank's participation in a self-insured health insurance plan. Occupancy and equipment expense increased due to higher costs for snow removal and utilities in 2014 compared to 2013. Banks shares tax expense decreased year over year due to a change in the calculation. Other expenses increased due to increases in supply expenses and directors fees.

Provision for Income Taxes

For the first quarter of 2014 the Corporation recorded a Federal income tax expense of $412 thousand compared to $308 thousand for the same quarter in 2013.
While pretax income was higher in 2014 due to less provision expense, this was partially offset by a larger benefit from tax exempt income during the quarter. As a result, the effective tax rate increased year over year to 18.4% for the first quarter of 2014 compared to 16.6% for 2013. All taxable income for the Corporation is taxed at a rate of 34%.

Financial Condition

Summary:

At March 31, 2014, assets totaled $1.026 billion, an increase of $41.9 million from the 2013 year-end balance of $984.6 million. Investment securities increased $2.0 million, while net loans increased $2.6 million. Deposits were up $47.2 million in the first quarter of 2014 due to increases in noninterest bearing, interest bearing and money management deposits. Shareholders' equity increased $2.3 million during the first three months as retained earnings increased approximately $1.1 million, other comprehensive loss improved $994 thousand and the Corporation's Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) added an additional $170 thousand in new capital.

Cash and Cash Equivalents:

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $79.4 million at March 31, 2014, an increase of $38.6 million from the prior year-end balance of $40.7 million. The increase is due to large inflows of deposits as well as slow loan growth opportunities. Interest-bearing deposits are held primarily at the Federal Reserve.

Investment Securities:

The composition of the investment portfolio is unchanged since year-end 2013. Municipal securities and U.S. Agency mortgage-backed securities continue to comprise the greatest portion of the portfolio at 35% and 50% of the portfolio, respectively. The Bank invested $6.8 million during the first quarter divided almost equally between U.S. Agency securities and U.S. Agency mortgage-backed securities.

The investment portfolio had a net unrealized loss of $679 thousand at the end of the quarter, slightly lower than at year-end 2013. The trust-preferred sector continues to report the largest net unrealized loss.

The portfolio averaged $161.6 million with a yield of 3.0% for the first quarter. This compares to an average of $136.5 million and a yield of 2.74% for the same period in 2013. The improvement in the yield is primarily the result of a slow-down in prepayments on mortgage-backed securities.

The equity portfolio is comprised of bank stocks and the Bank and the Corporation each maintain separate equity portfolios. In April 2014, the equity portfolio was reduced by approximately 30% as the Corporation took advantage of


price increases and sold selected holdings. The municipal bond portfolio is well diversified geographically (issuers from within 27 states) and is comprised primarily of general obligation bonds (71%). Most municipal bonds have credit enhancements in the form of private bond insurance or other credit support. The largest geographic municipal bond exposure is to nineteen issuers in the state of Texas with a fair value of $9.0 million and eleven issuers in the state of Pennsylvania with a fair value of $6.0 million. The municipal bond portfolio contains $53.7 million of bonds rated A or higher, $623 thousand rated lower than A (but above noninvestment grade), and $1.8 million that are not rated by Moody's rating agency. No municipal bonds are rated below investment grade. The Bank holds one variable rate corporate bond in the financial services sector, rated A3 by Moody's and is scheduled to mature in 2014.

The holdings of trust preferred investments and private-label mortgage-backed securities are unchanged since year-end and are detailed in tables included in this note.
