MINISTRY PARTNERS INVESTMENT COMPANY, LLC REPORTS FIRST QUARTER PROFITABILITY

Brea, California, Jun 06, 2012 – Ministry Partners Investment Company, LLC, a California based credit union service organization that specializes in church lending, announced today financial results for its fiscal 2012 first quarter. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company generated net income of $87 thousand as compared to a net loss of $201 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2011

The primary items affecting operating performance for the quarter were the following: (1) significant savings on interest expense related to borrowings from financial institutions as a result of the refinancing transaction with the NCUA at the end of 2011; (2) decreased interest income on loans as a result of deleveraging our balance sheet; (3) a small increase in other income related to servicing loan participations for others; and (4) an increase in salaries and benefits expenses as a result of hiring individuals to assist in servicing and managing our loan portfolio as well as our debt securities.

“We believe our first quarter results represent a vindication of the hard work our staff has performed in achieving major company objectives, and no small measure of God’s grace,” said Bill Dodson, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are benefiting from a reduction in provisions for loan losses relative to previous reporting periods, and from some positive changes in our loan portfolio. It’s too early to call this a confirmed trend, but it is certainly a step in the right direction. We feel confident that our earnings this year will still meet our expectations.”
