 PREMIER FINANCIAL BANCORP, INC. (PFBI) has reported a 22.99 percent rise in profit for the quarter ended Mar. 31, 2017. The company has earned $3.66 million, or $0.34 a share in the quarter, compared with $2.98 million, or $0.29 a share for the same period last year.      

Revenue during the quarter grew 6.59 percent to $15.65 million from $14.68 million in the previous year period. Net interest income for the quarter rose 7.21 percent over the prior year period to $14 million. Non-interest income for the quarter rose 4.13 percent over the last year period to $2.02 million.

President and Chief Executive Officer Robert W. Walker commented, "We are thankful for a strong quarterly earnings performance to begin the year. Our efforts to grow the loan portfolio, control operating costs and improve non-interest income produced results we are proud to report. Our net interest margin improved to 4.12% in the first quarter of 2017, up from 3.93% in the same quarter of 2016, aided by the collection of deferred interest income on the payoff of a few non-accrual loans. The collection on these loans also served to reduce total non-accrual loans from the amount reported at year-end 2016. Total non-accrual loans decreased by over $5.4 million during the first quarter of 2017. Also aiding our improvement in earnings, total earning assets increased in the first quarter of 2017 by approximately $24.6 million, or 1.8%, over the total at year-end 2016. I want to thank all of our hard working employees for their efforts in achieving these outstanding results, as we strive to improve and expand our great franchise".
