A Letter from the President & CEO

Dear Shareholder

Landmark Bancorp Inc.’s operating results in the third quarter reflect the continued progression and productive performance by our Company. The Company’s consistent improvement and performance demonstrates the quality of our disciplined business strategy and the effectiveness of our team in executing that strategy in our marketplace. Net income for the third quarter was $287,128. It’s noteworthy that the year to date net income of $847,353 increased 13.79% compared to $744,668 for the same period in 2018.

Net interest income of $2.32 million decreased $458,000, or 16.5% compared to the third quarter of 2018. The credit card and manufactured home loan portfolios sold in late 2018 and throughout 2019 contributed to the decline in net interest income but eliminated associated risks and expenses as illustrated by the following results:

 Income Statement

Financial ImpactAnnual $ ImprovementAnnual % Improvement
Total improvement$1,014,97733.9%
Provision expense plus net charge‐offs$ (23,185)$ 329,062reduced expense$ 352,247‐107.0%

Non‐interest income 540,397 295,181increased income245,21683.1%

Total deposits were $273,935,000 for the recent quarter, a decline of 4.23% from June 30, 2019. The decline is a direct result of a reduction in assets as well as a restructuring of the deposit portfolio to increase core deposits, reduce the amount of time deposits and, ultimately, reduce the cost of funds. The diligent efforts by our branch and commercial lending personnel to restructure the portfolio is reflected below and will ultimately reduce our cost of funds:

Time deposits106,738,982113,452,247‐6,713,265‐5.9%

It should be noted that a decline in public funds MMDA balances was $6.9 MM, of which half is a seasonal fluctuation.

Landmark Bancorp Inc has now reached the position to grow the bank in a prudent, methodical and persistent process. The following quarterly results in all aspects of lending will bear out the success of our strategic plan. With the skillful and disciplined lending staff, almost all Landmark Community Bank lending sectors have realized volume increases while still improving asset quality metrics:

 Outstanding's Quarterly 
9/30/20196/30/2019$ Variances%
Commercial Loans$190,711,291$186,313,744$ 4,397,5472.4%
Dealer Loans26,161,25325,664,897496,3561.9%
Mortgage Loans21,295,52219,178,6972,116,82511.0%
Consumer Loans6,409,0205,635,385773,63513.7%

From a credit quality perspective, loans classified as nonaccrual totaled $1,558,824, or .64% of total loans outstanding at September 30, 2019 compared with $5,032,889, or 1.97 % at a year earlier. Total delinquencies, including non‐accruals, greater than 30 days were reduced to .77% at September 30, 2019 compared with 2.37%, a year earlier. Landmark’s third quarter delinquency ratio of .77% is significantly lower than that of our local and national peer groups whose delinquency ratios at June 30, 2019 are 1.06% and 1.24%, respectively. Management also has sale agreements on two non‐accrual relationships amounting to approximately $550,000 with anticipated closings in the fourth quarter. In addition, there is other real estate owned in the amount of $305,000 that management also anticipates selling in the fourth quarter. In aggregate, Landmark’s nonperforming assets would be accordingly reduced by $855,000 by 2019‐year end with these closings.

As you are aware, the Texas ratio is used to measure a bank’s credit risk in its portfolio and the ultimate impact on earnings. At the end of this quarter, our Texas ratio was 7.94% compared to 19.31% as of September 30, 2018. Based upon the anticipated closings on non‐performing assets as mentioned above, the Texas ratio is anticipated to be below 6% by the end of 2019. The disciplined asset management approach will continue to result in a reduction in non‐interest expense and further drive long term profitability.

It’s vital to recognize that Landmark Community Bank remains well capitalized with Tier 1 capital 9.84% at September 30, 2019 compared to 8.66% at September 30, 2018.
