For the second fiscal quarter, the Company recorded net earnings of $184,000 or $0.14 per share which reflected an increase of $124,000 or $0.10 per share, as compared to the $60,000 or $0.04 per share for the same quarter ended December 31, 2017.

This increase in earnings was primarily attributable to a $41,000 increase in net interest income, and a $240,000 decrease in income taxes partially offset by a $106,000 decrease in other income and a $51,000 increase in general, administrative and other expenses.
Net earnings for the six months ending December 31, 2018 were $361,000, an increase of $104,000, or 40.47%, as compared to the six month period ending December 31, 2017.

The significant reduction in income taxes for both the quarter and six months ending December 31, 2018 was due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) passed by Congress in December, 2017 reducing the Federal Corporate tax rate to a flat 21% and the related effect to the value of the deferred tax asset. As a result of the Act, in December, 2017, the Company recorded a $214,000 one-time charge to reduce the carrying value of its deferred tax assets.
DSA Financial reported total assets of $122.9 million at December 31, 2018, total liabilities of $107.7 million, including deposits of $96.6 million and total stockholders’ equity of $15.2 million.
