Tompkins Financial Corporation reported net income of $7.9 million for the third quarter of 2008, up 16.6% over net income of $6.8 million reported in the third quarter of 2007. For the first nine months of 2008, net income was $22.6 million up 19.1% over net income of $18.9 million for the same period in 2007.

Total assets were $2.7 billion at September 30, 2008, up $408.2 million or 17.6% from September 30, 2007. Total loans were $1.7 billion at September 30, 2008, representing a 24.2% increase from the prior year. Total deposits at September 30, 2008, were $2.1 billion, up 21.4% from September 30, 2007

Annualized net charge-offs for the first nine months of the year represented 0.18% of average loans, up from 0.10% for the first nine months of 2007.  Nonperforming assets represented 0.48% of total assets as of September 30, 2008, up from 0.37% at September 30, 2007.  Reflecting the trends in asset quality, provision expense increased from $387,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, to $1.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2008.  For the year to date period, provision expense was $3.3 million in 2008, compared to $1.1 million in 2007.  The allowance for loan/lease losses represented 1.01% of total loans as of September 30, 2008, compared to 1.04% at September 30, 2007.

Balance sheet growth contributed to improved net interest income in 2008, for both the third quarter and year to date.  Net interest income of $24.0 million in the third quarter was up 29.9% over the same period in 2007.  For the year to date period, net interest income was $65.6 million, up 20.3% from the same period last year.  Net interest income also benefited from an improved net interest margin, which was 3.92% in the third quarter of 2008, compared to 3.61% in the third quarter of 2007.  For the first nine months of 2008, the net interest margin was 3.79%, compared to 3.61% for the first nine months of 2007.

Noninterest income for the third quarter of 2008 was $11.4 million, down slightly from $11.6 million for the same period in 2007. The economic climate has played a role in this trend as investment services fees, service charges on deposit accounts and card services income were all down slightly from the third quarter of 2007. For the year to date period, noninterest income was $35.7 million in 2008, up 8.7% over the $32.8 million reported for the year to date period in 2007.
