Results of Operations



Overview



The first quarter of 2021 was positively impacted by a number of items resulting
in very strong financial results. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact
customer behavior and balance sheet growth, but there has not been significant
negative impacts on earnings or credit. Customers have adapted to changes in
behavior and the Corporation continues to seek ways to manage the structure of
the balance sheet to ensure positive financial results now and in future time
periods.



The Corporation recorded net income of $4,504,000 for the three-month period
ended March 31, 2021, a $2,339,000, or 108.0% increase, from the $2,165,000
earned during the same period in 2020. The earnings per share, basic and
diluted, were $0.81 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $0.38
for the same period in 2020, a 113.2% increase. The increase in the
Corporation's 2021 earnings was caused primarily by growth in gains on mortgages
sold, other income, and net interest income.



The gains from the sale of mortgages were $1,930,000 for the three months ended
March 31, 2021, compared to gains of $541,000 for the first quarter of 2020, an
increase of $1,389,000, or 256.7%. The volume of mortgages sold was higher
during the first three months of 2021 compared to the same period in the prior
year. This volume has been driven by low market rates, which has caused an
increase in refinancing activity over the course of the past year. Additionally,
margins received on sold mortgages have been at higher levels supporting this
higher level of gains. Gains on securities in total increased by $283,000, or
544.2%, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period
in the prior year primarly driven by gains on equity securities sold as well as
unrealized gains on equity securities recorded in income due to the increased
market values of bank stocks as of March 31, 2021. Outside of mortgage and
security gains, other non-interest income increased by $879,000, or 40.4% for
the first quarter of 2021, due to many positive trends such as higher trust
income, higher commissions on debit card interchange fees, and lower mortgage
servicing asset amortization.



The Corporation's NII increased by $463,000, or 5.0%, for the three months ended
March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. The increase in NII
primarily resulted from an increase in interest on securities available for sale
of $244,000, or 13.7%, for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, as well
as a decrease in interest expense on deposits and borrowings of $420,000, or
33.0%. The low interest rate environment has caused a rapid decline in asset
yield, but also a decline in the cost of funds, which has resulted in these much
lower levels of interest expense.



The financial services industry uses two primary performance measurements to
gauge performance: return on average assets (ROA) and return on average equity
(ROE). ROA measures how efficiently a bank generates income based on the amount
of assets or size of a company. ROE measures the efficiency of a company in
generating income based on the amount of equity or capital utilized. The latter
measurement typically receives more attention from shareholders. The ROA and ROE
increased for the quarter-to-date period ended March 31, 2021, compared to the
same period in the prior year, due to much higher earnings in the first quarter
of 2021 compared to 2020.

The results of the Corporation's operations are best explained by addressing, in
further detail, the five major sections of the income statement, which are
as
follows:



 · Net interest income

· Provision for loan losses


 · Other income


 · Operating expenses

· Provision for income taxes

The following discussion analyzes each of these five components.



Net Interest Income



NII represents the largest portion of the Corporation's operating income. In the
first three months of 2021, NII generated 64.5% of the Corporation's revenue
stream, which consists of net interest income and non-interest income, compared
to 76.9% in the first three months of 2020. This significant decrease is a
result of much higher levels of non-interest income primarily driven by mortgage
gains in the first quarter of 2021 which made up 12.9% of the Corporation's
revenue stream, compared to only 4.5% in the first quarter of 2020. However, the
overall performance of the Corporation is highly dependent on the changes in net
interest income since it comprises such a significant portion of operating
income.



The following table shows a summary analysis of net interest income on a fully
taxable equivalent (FTE) basis. For analytical purposes and throughout this
discussion, yields, rates, and measurements such as NII, net interest spread,
and net yield on interest earning assets are presented on an FTE basis. The FTE
net interest income shown in both tables below will exceed the NII reported on
the consolidated statements of income, which is not shown on an FTE basis. The
amount of FTE adjustment totaled $268,000 for the three months ended March 31,
2021, compared to $166,000 for the same period in 2020.

NII is the difference between interest income earned on assets and interest expense incurred on liabilities. Accordingly, two factors affect net interest income:

· The rates earned on interest earning assets and paid on interest bearing

liabilities



 · The average balance of interest earning assets and interest bearing liabilities

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The Federal funds rate, the Prime rate, the shape of the U.S. Treasury curve,
and other wholesale funding curves, all affect NII. The Federal Reserve controls
the Federal funds rate, which is one of a number of tools available to the
Federal Reserve to conduct monetary policy. The Federal funds rate, and guidance
on when the rate might be changed, is often the focal point of discussion
regarding the direction of interest rates. During 2020, the Federal funds rate
was decreased by 150 basis points in March taking the rate to 0.25% by March 31,
2020. With the declines in the Federal funds rate, the U.S. Treasury yield curve
became flatter. Long-term rates like the ten-year U.S. Treasury were 232 basis
points under the 3.25% Prime rate as of December 31, 2020. Long-term Treasury
rates remained low throughout 2020, and with the decreases in the Federal
Reserve short-term rates, the yield curve remained essentially flat throughout
the year. Management had not anticipated the Fed rate decreases in the first
quarter of 2020. During the first quarter of 2021, longer-term U.S. Treasury
rates did increase adding some slope to the yield curve. The ten-year Treasury
rate was 1.74% as of March 31, 2021, which was 151 basis points under the Prime
rate. This Treasury rate movement makes it a little easier to get asset yield on
the longer end of the curve, but yields are still compressed compared to years
prior to 2020, making increasing asset yield much more difficult, which adds
strain to NII and NIM.



The Prime rate is generally used by commercial banks to extend variable rate
loans to business and commercial customers. For many years, the Prime rate has
been set at 300 basis points, or 3.00% higher, than the Federal funds rate and
typically moves when the Federal funds rate changes. As such, the Prime rate
decreased to 3.25% in March of 2020 after the 150 basis point Fed rate decline.
The Corporation's Prime-based loans generally reprice a day after the Federal
Reserve rate movement.



As a result of a larger balance sheet in the first quarter of 2021, even with
much lower asset yields, the Corporation's NII on a tax equivalent basis
increased while the Corporation's margin decreased to 2.86% for the quarter,
compared to 3.41% in the first quarter of 2020. Loan yields were lower in the
first quarter of 2021 due to the 150 basis point Fed rate decline during the
first quarter of 2020. The Corporation's NII for the three months ended March
31, 2021 increased over the same period in 2020, by $565,000, or 6.0%.
Management's asset liability sensitivity measurements continue to show a benefit
to both margin and NII given Federal Reserve rate increases. Actual results over
the past two years have confirmed the asset sensitivity of the Corporation's
balance sheet. However, in a down-rate environment, the margin and NII would
suffer unless balance sheet growth is enough to offset lower asset yields.



Security yields will generally fluctuate more rapidly than loan yields based on
changes to the U.S. Treasury rates and yield curve. With lower Treasury rates in
2020, security reinvestment had generally been occurring at lower yield levels.
With slightly higher Treasury rates in the first quarter of 2021, security
yields have increased slightly, but still remain compressed compared to years
prior to 2020.


The Corporation's loan portfolio yield has decreased from the prior years'
period as the variable rate portion of the loan portfolio repriced lower with
each Federal Reserve rate movement and some fixed rate borrowers requested loan
modifications to reset their rates lower in the current record low market rate
environment. The vast majority of the Corporation's commercial Prime-based loans
were priced at the Prime rate, which was 4.75% to start 2020, and then 4.25% as
of March 4, 2020, and 3.25% as of March 16, 2020 through March 31, 2021. The
pricing for the most typical five-year fixed rate commercial loans is currently
in line with the Prime rate. With the significant 2020 Federal Reserve rate
reductions, adding variable rate loans to the portfolio means they will be
priced at very low rates to start but can reprice lower if the Federal Reserve
lowers rates any further and would reprice higher if the Federal Reserve would
increase rates. There are elements of the Corporation's Prime-based commercial
loans priced above the Prime rate based on the level of credit risk of the
borrower. Management does price a portion of consumer variable rate loans above
the Prime rate, which also helps to improve loan yield. Both commercial and
consumer Prime-based pricing continues to be influenced by local competition.



Mid-term and long-term interest rates on average were higher in the first
quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. The average rate of the
10-year U.S. Treasury was 1.34% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 1.37%
in the first quarter of 2020, and it stood at 1.74% on March 31, 2021, compared
to 0.70% on March 31, 2020. The slope of the yield curve has been compressed
throughout 2020 and 2021 with a little more slope in the first quarter of 2021.
As of December 31, 2020, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate was only 68 basis points
higher than the Fed funds rate and as of March 31, 2021, it was 149 basis points
higher than the Fed funds rate. The slope of the yield curve has fluctuated many
times in the past two years with the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield as high as
1.88% in the first quarter of 2020 and 1.74% in the first quarter of 2021, and
as low as 0.54% in the first quarter of 2020, and 0.93% in the first quarter of
2021.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The Corporation's overall cost of funds, including non-interest bearing funds,
remained stable through the first quarter of 2021 between 19 and 21 basis
points. Management expects the cost of funds will decline slightly and then
stabilize throughout 2021 as limited deposits reprice to lower rates. Core
deposit interest rates were reduced nine times throughout 2020 and time deposit
rates have also decreased resulting in maturing time deposits repricing at lower
levels or moving into core deposit products. Management does not anticipate
significant deposit rate movements in 2021 as deposits are now priced at very
low rates. Typically, financial institutions will make small systematic moves on
core interest bearing accounts while making larger rate movements in the pricing
of new or reissued time deposits. The Corporation's costs on borrowings included
$50,000 of prepayment penalties recorded on FHLB long-term advances paid off
early during the first quarter of 2021, accelerating the interest expense, but
achieving savings in future time periods. While the average balance of
borrowings was lower in the first quarter of 2021 than the first quarter of
2020, the interest expense was higher, as the new $20 million sub debt issue
beginning on December 30, 2020, carried a higher rate of interest than FHLB
long-term advances that were paid off. As a result, the total cost of borrowings
increased from the first quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021 by
$75,000.



The following table provides an analysis of year-to-date changes in net interest
income by distinguishing what changes were a result of average balance increases
or decreases and what changes were a result of interest rate increases or
decreases.

During the first three months of 2021, the Corporation's NII on an FTE basis
increased by $565,000, or 6.0%, over the same period in 2020. Total interest
income on an FTE basis for the three months ended March 31, 2021, increased
$145,000, or 1.4%, from 2020, while interest expense decreased $420,000, or
33.0%, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in
2020. The FTE interest income from the securities portfolio increased by
$336,000, or 17.2%, while loan interest income decreased $75,000, or 0.9%.
During the first three months of 2021, additional loan volume caused by loan
growth added $837,000 to net interest income, but the lower yields caused a
$912,000 decrease, resulting in a total decrease of $75,000. Higher balances in
the securities portfolio caused an increase of $1,005,000 in NII, while lower
yields on securities caused a $669,000 decrease, resulting in a net increase of
$336,000.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The average balance of interest bearing liabilities increased by 15.4% during
the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the prior year driven by
growth in deposit balances. The lower cost on deposit accounts resulted in a
decrease in interest expense. Lower rates on all deposit types caused a $509,000
decrease in interest expense while higher balances of demand and savings
deposits caused an increase in expense of $14,000 resulting in a total decrease
of $495,000.



Out of all the Corporation's deposit types, interest-bearing demand deposits
reprice the most rapidly, as nearly all accounts are immediately affected by
rate changes. Time deposit balances decreased resulting in a $47,000 reduction
to expense, and time deposits repricing to lower interest rates decreased
interest expense by $172,000, causing a net total decrease of $219,000 in time
deposit interest expense. Even with the low rate environment, the Corporation
was successful in increasing balances of other deposit types.



The average balance of outstanding borrowings decreased by 9.4% from the prior
year, due to early payoff of FHLB advances that occurred during 2020 and the
first quarter of 2021. This resulted in a decrease in interest expense of
$41,000. Although interest rates were lower in the first three months of 2021
compared to the prior year, the Corporation incurred interest prepayment
penalites of $50,000 to pay off a long-term FHLB advance. The Corporation also
issued subordinated debt at the end of 2020, which was at a higher interest rate
than the FHLB advances. These two events increased interest expense by $116,000.
The combination of lower overall levels of borrowings at a materially higher
weighted average interest rate caused an increase in interest expense of $75,000
on total borrowings. The sub debt issue was pursued because of the benefit of
being treated as Tier 1 capital at the bank level and Tier II capital at the
bank holding company level.



The following table shows a more detailed analysis of net interest income on an
FTE basis with all the major elements of the Corporation's balance sheet, which
consists of interest earning and non-interest earning assets and interest
bearing and non-interest bearing liabilities. Additionally, the analysis
provides the net interest spread and the net yield on interest earning assets.
The net interest spread is the difference between the yield on interest earning
assets and the interest rate paid on interest bearing liabilities. The net
interest spread has the deficiency of not giving credit for the non-interest
bearing funds and capital used to fund a portion of the total interest earning
assets. For this reason, management emphasizes the net yield on interest earning
assets, also referred to as the NIM. The NIM is calculated by dividing net
interest income on an FTE basis into total average interest earning assets. The
NIM is generally the benchmark used by analysts to measure how efficiently a
bank generates NII.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The Corporation's interest income increased primarily due to increased interest
income on securities, but the increase in income was the result of growth in the
securities portfolio, not an increase in asset yield, resulting in a lower NIM
of 2.86% for the first quarter of 2021, compared to 3.41% for the first quarter
of 2020. The yield earned on assets decreased by 76 basis points during the
three months ended March 31, 2021, while the rate paid on liabilities decreased
by 30 basis points when comparing both years. This resulted in a 46 basis point
decrease in interest spread, and the effect of non-interest bearing deposits
decreased by nine basis points during the three months ended March 31, 2021,
compared to the prior year, resulting in the decrease in NIM of 55 basis points.
Management anticipates a levelling out of NIM during the remainder of 2021 as
Treasury rates have increased a little assisting with achieving higher yields in
the securities portfolio and loan yields will benefit some by the remainder of
the PPP fees that are accretive to loan interest income as PPP loans pay off or
are forgiven. Loan yields decreased in the first three months of 2021 compared
to the prior year primarily as a result of the 150 basis points of Prime decline
in the first quarter of 2020 that did not fully impact the loan yields until the
second quarter of 2020. Growth in the loan portfolio will help to offset a
declining asset yield moving through 2021. The Corporation's loan yield
decreased 45 basis points in the first three months of 2021 compared to the
first three months of 2020. Loan interest income decreased $75,000, or 0.9%, for
this time period as a result of the decline in yields.



Loan pricing was challenging in the first quarter of 2021 as a result of the
very low rate environment and competition resulting in fixed-rate loans being
priced at very low levels and variable-rate loans priced at the Prime rate or
below. The Prime rate decreased by 1.50% in March of 2020 to 3.25%, which is now
comparable to the typical rate of a five-year fixed-rate loan. The commercial or
business fixed rates do increase with longer fixed terms or lower credit
quality. In terms of the variable rate pricing, nearly all variable rate loans
offered are Prime-based. Management is able to price loan customers with higher
levels of credit risk at Prime plus pricing, such as Prime plus 0.75%, which
amounted to 4.00% at March 31, 2021, still a relatively low rate. However, only
a small minority of the loans in the commercial and agricultural portfolios are
at these higher rates due to the strong credit quality of the Corporation's
borrowers and market competition. Competition in the immediate market area has
been pricing select shorter-term fixed-rate commercial and agricultural lending
rates below 3.25% for the strongest loan credits.



Tax equivalent yields on the Corporation's securities decreased by 61 basis
points for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to 2020. The
Corporation's securities portfolio consists of approximately 75% fixed income
debt instruments and 25% variable rate product as of March 31, 2021. The
Corporation's taxable securities experienced an 81 basis-point decrease in yield
for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to 2020. Security
reinvestment in 2021 has been occurring at slightly higher rates due to the
increase in U.S. Treasury rates, but reinvestment throughout the majority of
2020 was at much lower yields. The sharp growth in the investment portfolio
during a period of very low rates also contributed to the decline in average
security yield. This large amount of new investment was caused by the
significant influx of deposits, which caused excess liquidity. The sharpest
growth in the securities portfolio occurred in the fourth quarter of 2020 and
the first quarter of 2021. In addition to these negative influences, the
Corporation's U.S. agency mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage
obligations experience faster principal prepayments as market rates decrease,
causing the amortization of premium to increase, effectively decreasing the
yield.



The yield on tax-exempt securities decreased by 48 basis points in the first
quarter of 2021 compared to 2020. For the Corporation, these bonds consist
entirely of tax-free municipal bonds. While the tax-exempt yields on municipal
bonds declined with the tax rate change at the end of 2017, yields became more
attractive again during 2020 and 2021. Management began investing in more of
these bonds in 2020 as yields stood out and provided better returns than other
sectors of the portfolio.



The interest rate paid on deposits decreased for the three months ended March
31, 2021, from the same period in 2020. Management follows a disciplined pricing
strategy on core deposit products that are not rate sensitive, meaning that the
balances do not fluctuate significantly when interest rates change. Rates on
interest-bearing checking accounts and money market accounts were decreased in
2020, resulting in a decrease in the cost of funds on these accounts of 41 basis
points. Savings account rates were also decreased during 2020 resulting in a two
basis point reduction in the cost of funds associated with these accounts.
Additionally, the cost of funds on time deposits decreased by 56 basis points
during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in the prior year.
Typically, the Corporation sees increases in core deposit products during
periods when consumers are not confident in the stock market or economic
conditions deteriorate. During these periods, there is a "flight to safety" to
federally insured deposits. This trend occurred again in early 2020 as the
federal, state and local governmental bodies began rapidly instituting social
distancing measures in an effort to control the spread of the coronavirus. These
measures had an immediate signicant negative impact to the economy, which also
resulted in the Federal Reserve quickly dropping interest rates back to historic
lows. This in turn resulted in market interest rates declining again to historic
lows, with the Corporation reducing offering rates on deposit products. As the
rate difference between time deposits and core deposits narrowed, many customers
chose to transfer funds from maturing time deposits into checking and savings
accounts.

                               ENB FINANCIAL CORP

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis
The Corporation's average deposits increased $293.7 million, or 30.2%, with all
types of interest-bearing deposits increasing $115.0 million, or 18.7%, while
non-interest bearing demand deposits increased $178.7 million, or 50.2%. In the
current rate environment, with short-term rates low and with small rate
differences for longer-term deposits, the consumer generally elected to stay
short and maintain funds in accessible deposit instruments. In addition to the
consumer staying liquid with their available funds, there has been a general
trend of funds flowing from time deposit accounts into non-interest checking,
NOW, and savings accounts. The average balance of time deposits declined during
the first three months of 2021 compared to 2020, but the other areas of NOW,
MMDA, and savings grew sufficiently enough to compensate for the decline in time
deposits, causing total interest bearing funds to increase significantly. Time
deposit balances had been growing throughout 2018 and 2019 due to the odd-month
CD promotions available at those times, but with the recent sharp decline in
rates, time deposits declined throughout 2020 and management expects these time
deposit balances to decrease throughout the remainder of 2021 as a result of
customers electing to allow maturing time deposit balances to roll off and hold
them in a liquid account until there is some sign of rate increases.



Interest expense on deposits decreased by $495,000, or 61.2%, for the three
months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. Demand and
savings deposits reprice in their entirety whenever the offering rates are
changed, so with each successive rate drop in 2020, these deposits repriced
lower. Interest rates on interest checking and money market accounts were
decreased nine times in 2020. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the
average balances of interest bearing demand deposits increased by $58.5 million,
or 22.0%, over the same period in 2020, while the average balance of savings
accounts increased by $70.9 million, or 32.8%.



Time deposits reprice over time according to their maturity schedule. This
enables management to both reduce and increase rates slowly over time. During
the three months ended March 31, 2021, time deposit balances decreased compared
to balances at March 31, 2020. The decrease can be attributed to the low rates
paid on time deposits, which has caused the differential between time deposit
rates and rates on non-maturity deposits to be minimal. As a result, customers
have elected to keep more of their funds in non-maturity deposits and less funds
in time deposits. Because time deposits are the most expensive deposit product
for the Corporation and the largest dollar expense from a funding standpoint,
the reduction in time deposits, along with the increases in interest-bearing
checking, savings, and non-interest bearing checking, has allowed the
Corporation to achieve a more balanced deposit funding position and maintain a
lower cost of funds. The Corporation's interest expense on time deposits
decreased by $220,000, or 45.6%, for the first three months of 2021, compared to
the same period in 2020. Management anticipates the interest expense on time
deposits and annualized rate paid will decline throughout the remainder of 2021
as these higher-priced time deposits mature and reprice at lower levels or
convert to non-maturity deposits.



The Corporation's average rate on borrowed funds increased by 67 basis points
from the first quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021, as an FHLB
borrowing was paid off early during the first quarter of 2021 accelerating
$50,000 of interest expense. In addition, the Corporation's subordinated debt
issued on December 30, 2020, is included in this total borrowed funds amount and
is at a rate of 4.00% for 5 years, so the increase in rate paid on borrowed
funds is a direct result of this as well.



The Corporation historically uses both short-term and long-term borrowings to
supplement liquidity generated by deposit growth. Average short-term advances of
only $77,000 were utilized in the three months ended March 31, 2021, while
average short-term advances of $1,806,000 were utilized in the three months
ended March 31, 2020. Management has used FHLB long-term borrowings as part of
an asset liability strategy to lengthen liabilities rather than as a source of
liquidity. Average total long-term FHLB borrowings decreased by $25,589,000, or
31.9%, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in
2020. The average balance of subordinated debt increased by $19,610,000, as
subordinated debt was issued at the end of 2020 as a vehicle to support capital
growth for the Corporation. This growth in debt balances contributed to an
increase in interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared
to the same period in the prior year. Interest expense on borrowed funds
increased $76,000, or 16.5%, for the three-month period when comparing 2021 to
2020, driven higher by $50,000 of FHLB interest prepayment penalties on the
early payoff of an advance as well as $200,000 of interest expense accrued on
subordinated debt. Despite these increases, interest expense in total was held
to a low level due to the prepayment of many FHLB advances in 2020 which
accelerated the interest expense to the prior year and will result in savings in
2021 and future years.



For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the net interest spread decreased by
46 basis points to 2.68%, compared to 3.14% for the three months ended March 31,
2020. The effect of non-interest bearing funds decreased to 18 basis points from
27 basis points for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The effect of
non-interest bearing funds refers to the benefit gained from deposits on which
the Corporation does not pay interest. As rates go higher, the benefit of
non-interest bearing deposits increases because there is more difference between
non-interest bearing funds and interest bearing liabilities. For example, if an
interest checking account with $10,000 earns 1%, the benefit for $10,000 of
non-interest bearing deposits is equivalent to $100; but if the
interest-checking rate is increased to 1.50%, then the benefit of the
non-interest bearing funds is $150. This assumes dollar-for-dollar replacement,
which is not realistic, but demonstrates the way the higher cost of funds
affects the benefit to non-interest bearing deposits.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis
The Asset Liability Committee (ALCO) carefully monitors the NIM because it
indicates trends in net interest income, the Corporation's largest source of
revenue. For more information on the plans and strategies in place to protect
the NIM and moderate the impact of rising rates, refer to Item 7A: Quantitative
and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.



Provision for Loan Losses



The allowance for credit losses (ACL) provides for losses inherent in the loan
portfolio as determined by a quarterly analysis and calculation of various
factors related to the loan portfolio. The amount of the provision reflects the
adjustment management determines necessary to ensure the ACL is adequate to
cover any losses inherent in the loan portfolio. The Corporation recorded a
provision expense of $375,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021,
compared to $350,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The analysis of
the ACL takes into consideration, among other things, the following factors:



· levels and trends in delinquencies, nonaccruals, charge-offs and recoveries,

· trends within the loan portfolio,

· changes in lending policies and procedures,

· experience of lending personnel and management oversight,

· national and local economic trends,

· concentrations of credit,

· external factors such as legal and regulatory requirements,

· changes in the quality of loan review and board oversight, and

· changes in the value of underlying collateral.

As of March 31, 2021, total delinquencies represented 0.31% of total loans,
compared to 0.67% as of March 31, 2020. These ratios are very low compared to
local and national peer groups. The vast majority of the Corporation's loan
customers have remained steadfast in making their loan payments and avoiding
delinquency, even during challenging economic conditions. The delinquency ratios
speak to the long-term health, conservative nature, and, importantly, the
character of the Corporation's customers and lending practices. Classified loans
are primarily determined by loan-to-value and debt-to-income ratios. The level
of classified loans has decreased from March 31, 2020, to March 31, 2021, from
20.7% of regulatory capital to 14.7% of regulatory capital. The delinquency and
classified loan information is utilized in the quarterly ACL calculation, which
directly affects the provision expense. A sharp increase or decrease in
delinquencies and/or classified loans during the quarter would be cause for
management to increase or decrease the provision expense. The level of actual
charge-offs relative to the amount of recoveries can also have a significant
impact on the provision. Management had minimal charge-offs and recoveries in
the first three months of 2021.



Generally, management will evaluate and adjust, if necessary, the provision
expense each quarter based upon completion of the quarterly ACL calculation.
Future provision amounts will generally depend on the amount of loan growth
achieved versus levels of delinquent, non-performing, and classified loans, as
well as charge-offs and recoveries.



In addition to the above, provision expense is impacted by three major
components that are all included in the quarterly calculation of the ACL. First,
specific allocations are made for any loans where management has determined an
exposure that needs to be provided for. These specific allocations are reviewed
each quarter to determine if adjustments need to be made. It is common for
specific allocations to be reduced as additional principal payments are made, so
while some specific allocations are being added, others are being reduced.
Second, management provides for estimated losses on pools of similar loans based
on historical loss experience. Finally, management utilizes qualitative factors
every quarter to adjust historical loss experience to take into consideration
the current trends in loan volume, delinquencies, charge-offs, changes in
lending practices, and the quality of the Corporation's underwriting, credit
analysis, lending staff, and Board oversight. National and local economic trends
and conditions are also helpful to determine the amount of loan loss allowance
the Corporation should be carrying on the various types of loans. Management
evaluates and adjusts, if necessary, the qualitative factors on a quarterly
basis.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

In the first three months of 2021, qualitative factors were adjusted by
management based on current internal information regarding trends in the nature
and volume of the loan portfolio and delinquency. An increase in qualitative
factors was made across one loan pool related to trends in the nature and volume
of the loan portfolio. This factor was increased by 5 basis points since
December 31, 2020. Other factors remained unchanged in the first three months of
2021.


Management also monitors the allowance as a percentage of total loans. The
percentage of the allowance to total loans has increased since March 31, 2020,
and remains higher than the Bank's national peer group from the Uniform Bank
Performance Reports. As of March 31, 2021, the allowance as a percentage of
total loans was 1.51%, up from 1.28% at March 31, 2020, and 1.50% at December
31, 2020. Management continues to evaluate the ACL in relation to the size of
the loan portfolio and changes to the segments within the loan portfolio and
their associated credit risk. Management believes the ACL is adequate to provide
for future loan losses based on the current portfolio and the current economic
environment. More detail is provided under Allowance for Credit Losses in the
Financial Condition section that follows.





Other Income



Other income for the first quarter of 2021 was $5,318,000, an increase of
$2,551,000, or 92.2%, compared to the $2,767,000 earned during the first quarter
of 2020. The following table details the categories that comprise other income.
As illustrated in the tables below the primary contributor to the increase was
the gains on the sales of mortgages.

Trust and investment services income increased $48,000, or 7.7%, for the three
months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period last year. This revenue
consists of income from traditional trust services and income from alternative
investment services provided through a third party. In the first quarter of
2021, traditional trust income increased by $61,000, or 16.1%, while income from
alternative investments decreased by $13,000, or 5.2%, compared to the first
quarter of 2020. The decline in income from the investment services area can be
attributed to less new business, which was impacted by COVID-19 and the branch
lobby closures during 2020. Management would expect activity to increase again
going into the remainder of 2021. The trust and investment services area
continues to be an area of strategic focus for the Corporation. Management
believes there continues to be great need for retirement, estate, small business
succession planning, and personal investment services in the Corporation's
service area. Management also sees these services as being a necessary part of a
comprehensive line of financial solutions across the organization.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis
Service charges on deposit accounts decreased by $67,000, or 21.3%, for the
three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. The
decrease is primarily due to a decrease in overdraft fees that were lower by
$72,000, or 27.3%, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the
same period in 2020. This decline can be primarily attributed to the current
economic environment, which has necessitated changes in customer behaviors.
Various other fee income categories increased or decreased to lesser degrees
making up the remainder of the variance compared to the prior year.



Commissions increased by $178,000, or 25.9%, for the three months ended March
31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. This increase was primarily
caused by an increase in debit card interchange income of $164,000, or 28.4%.
The interchange income is a direct result of the volume of debit card
transactions processed and this income is increasing as customers utilize
electronic payments more.



For the three months ended March 31, 2021, $87,000 of gains on securities
transactions were recorded, compared to gains of $282,000 for the same period in
2020. Gains or losses on securities transactions fluctuate based on market
opportunities to take gains and reposition the securities portfolio to improve
long-term earnings, or as part of management's asset liability goals to improve
liquidity or reduce interest rate risk or fair value risk. The gains or losses
recorded by the Corporation depend heavily on market pricing and the volume of
security sales. Generally, the lower U.S. Treasury yields go, the more
management will be motivated to pursue taking gains from the sale of securities.
However, these market opportunities are evaluated subject to the Corporation's
other asset liability measurements and goals. The yield curve in the first three
months of 2021 provided fewer opportunities to take gains out of the portfolio
than during the first three months of 2020.



Gains on equity securities amounted to $248,000 during the first three months of
2021, comared to a loss of $230,000 in the prior year. This represents an
increase in income of $478,000 for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the
first quarter of 2020. Gains or losses on equity securities are impacted by
actual sales of securities as well as changes in the market value of these
securities since market value gains and losses are recorded through income. In
the first three months of 2021, $95,000 of gains were recorded on the sale of
bank stocks and $153,000 was recorded as an unrealized gain due to the increase
in market value of the bank stock portfolio. During the first three months of
2020, unrealized losses of $230,000 were recorded due to the decline in bank
stock prices as the COVID-19 pandemic began and negatively impacted the market.



Gains on the sale of mortgages were $1,930,000 for the three-month period ended
March 31, 2021, compared to $541,000 for the same period in 2020, a $1,389,000,
or 256.7% increase. Mortgage activity was significantly higher in the first
three months of 2021 compared to the prior year as a result of historically low
interest rates and a surge in mortgage refinancing activity. Even with market
rates increasing slightly in the first quarter of 2021, refinance activity
continued at record levels. Management currently anticipates that gains
throughout the remainder of 2021 may decrease slightly compared to the prior
year, due to the increase in market rates that will likely result in a slowdown
of mortgage activity, as well as lower margins received on mortgages sold.



For the three months ended March 31, 2021, earnings on bank-owned life insurance
(BOLI) increased by $10,000, or 4.9%, compared to the same period in 2020. The
amount of BOLI income is generally dependent upon the actual return of the
policies, the insurance cost components, and any benefits paid upon death that
exceed the policy's cash surrender value. Increases in cash surrender value are
a function of the return of the policy net of all expenses.



The miscellaneous income category increased by $708,000, for the three months
ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. The quarterly
increase can be primarily attributed to net mortgage servicing income, which
increased by $263,000 in 2021 compared to 2020 due to much lower levels of
mortgage servicing asset amortization in 2021. The slightly higher interest rate
environment resulted in this lower level of amortization. Other miscellaneous
income categories increased as well making up the remainder of the variance
in
this category.





Operating Expenses



Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $9,187,000, an increase of
$77,000, or 0.8%, compared to the $9,110,000 for the first quarter of 2020. The
following table provides details of the Corporation's operating expenses for the
three-month period ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020.

Salaries and employee benefits are the largest category of operating expenses.
In general, they comprise approximately 62% of the Corporation's total operating
expenses. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, salaries and benefit costs
remained nearly the same as 2020. This has resulted in better operational
efficiency as the Corporation's total assets have grown dramatically since the
prior year, but salaries and benefit costs have remained static resulting in
overall improvements in efficiency.



Occupancy expenses consist of the following:

· Depreciation of bank buildings

· Real estate taxes and property insurance


 · Building lease expense


 · Utilities

· Building repair and maintenance





Occupancy expenses increased by $92,000, or 15.6% for the three months ended
March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in the prior year. Snow removal
costs alone increased by $43,000, or 300.6%, and utilities costs increased by
$20,000, or 10.9%, for the first quarter of 2021, compared to the same period in
the prior year. In addition, building repair and maintenance costs increased
$16,000, or 44.9% for the same time period. Other occupancy costs increased or
decreased by smaller amounts making up the remainder of the variance in this
category.



Equipment expenses decreased by $23,000, or 7.9%, for the three months ended
March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease in
this category is primarily related to depreciation on existing furniture and
equipment which decreased by $28,000, or 15.0%. This decline can be attributed
to depreciation streams ending on furniture and equipment purchased in prior
years with new purchases of furniture and equipment only partially offsetting
this decline.


Advertising and marketing expenses decreased by $84,000, or 30.7%, for the three
months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. These expenses
can be further broken down into two categories, marketing expenses and public
relations. The marketing expenses decreased by $60,000, or 34.9%, for the
quarter-to-date period ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in the
prior year. Public relations expenses decreased by $24,000, or 23.9%, for the
three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020.
Marketing expenses support the overall business strategies of the Corporation;
therefore, the timing of these expenses is highly dependent upon the execution
of those strategies.



Computer software and data processing expenses increased by $392,000, or 55.5%,
for the first quarter of 2021 compared to 2020. Software-related expenses were
up by $336,000, or 81.3%, as a result of purchasess of new software platforms to
support the strategic initiatives of the Corporation as well as higher
amortization on software purchased in the prior year. Software expenses are
likely to continue to increase in 2021, but the actual increase will be
dependent on how quickly new software platforms are identified, analyzed,
approved and placed into service. Data processing fees were up $56,000, or
19.1%, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in
2020.

                               ENB FINANCIAL CORP

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

Bank shares tax expense was $280,000 for the first quarter of 2021, an increase
of $41,000, or 17.2%, from the first quarter of 2020. Two main factors determine
the amount of bank shares tax: the ending value of shareholders' equity and the
ending value of tax-exempt U.S. obligations. The shares tax calculation uses a
period-end balance of shareholders' equity and a tax rate of 0.95%. The increase
in 2021 can be primarily attributed to the Corporation's growing value of
shareholders' equity.



Professional services expense decreased by $184,000, or 29.5%, for the
three-month periods ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020.
These services include accounting and auditing fees, legal fees, and fees for
other third-party services. These fees were elevated in the first quarter of
2020 due to implementation expenses related to a consumer loan platform. Several
other professional services expenses increased or decreased slightly making up
the remainder of the variance.



Other operating expenses decreased by $160,000, or 23.2%, for the three-month
period ended March 31, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. Contributing
to this decrease, fraud-related charges-offs decreased by $88,000, operating
supplies decreased by $44,000, or 43.8%, loan-related expenses decreased by
$35,000, or 35.8%, and travel costs decreased by $34,000, or 74.1%. Partially
offsetting these decreases, FDIC insurance costs increased by $86,000 for the
three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to the first quarter of the prior
year. Several other operating expense categories increased or decreased by
smaller amounts making up the remainder of this variance.





Income Taxes


For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Corporation recorded Federal
income tax expense of $931,000, compared to $358,000 for the three months ended
March 31, 2020. The effective tax rate for the Corporation was 17.1% for the
three months ended March 31, 2021, and 14.2% for the three months ended March
31, 2020. Certain items of income are not subject to Federal income tax, such as
tax-exempt interest income on loans and securities, and BOLI income; therefore,
the effective income tax rate for the Corporation is lower than the stated tax
rate. The effective tax rate is calculated by dividing the Corporation's
provision for Federal income taxes on the Consolidated Statements of Income by
the income before income taxes for the applicable period.



The Corporation's effective tax rate has historically been maintained at low
levels primarily due to a relatively high level of tax-free municipal bonds held
in the securities portfolio. The fluctuation of the effective tax rate will
occur as a result of total tax-free revenue as a percentage of total revenue.



The Corporation is also subject to Pennsylvania Corporate Net Income Tax;
however, the Corporation's Holding Company has very limited taxable corporate
net income activities. The Corporation's wholly owned subsidiary, Ephrata
National Bank, is subject to Pennsylvania Bank Shares Tax. Like Federal
Corporate income tax, the Pennsylvania Bank Shares Tax is a significant expense
for the Corporation, amounting to $280,000 in the first three months of 2021
compared to $239,000 in 2020. The Bank Shares Tax expense appears on the
Corporation's Consolidated Statements of Income, under operating expenses.

Financial Condition



Investment Securities



The Corporation classifies all of its debt securities as available for sale and
reports the portfolio at fair value. As of March 31, 2021, the Corporation had
$538.8 million of securities available for sale, which accounted for 35.2% of
assets, compared to 33.1% as of December 31, 2020, and 27.8% as of March 31,
2020. Based on ending balances, the securities portfolio increased 64.7% from
March 31, 2020, and 11.4% from December 31, 2020.



The debt securities portfolio was showing a net unrealized gain of $3,703,000 as
of March 31, 2021, compared to an unrealized gain of $10,072,000 as of December
31, 2020, and an unrealized gain of $1,396,000 as of March 31, 2020. The
valuation of the Corporation's securities portfolio, predominately debt
securities, is impacted by both the U.S. Treasury rates and the perceived
forward direction of interest rates. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield was 0.70%
as of March 31, 2020, 0.93% as of December 31, 2020, and 1.74% as of March 31,
2021. The lower Treasury rates have caused an increase in market valuation,
which has resulted in the unrealized gains recorded at March 31, 2021, December
31, 2020, and March 31, 2020. Gains were lower as of March 31, 2021, compared to
the end of 2020 due to the increase in Treasury rates experienced in the first
quarter of 2021. Additionally, with the Federal Reserve's sudden overnight rate
decreases in March of 2020, the variable rate portion of the Corporation's
security portfolio lost market value due to the market's recognition that these
instruments would yield materially less going forward which resulted in the
lower levels of unrealized gains at March 31, 2020.

loss position, and fair value for each sector of the securities portfolio for
the periods ended March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020, and March 31, 2020.

Interest rate changes and the perceived forward direction of interest rates
generally have a close relationship to the valuation of the Corporation's fixed
income securities portfolio. There are also a number of other market factors
that impact bond prices. During the second half of 2019, the Federal Reserve
decreased short-term rates three times for a total of 75 basis points, and
during the first quarter of 2020, the Federal Reserve decreased short-term rates
two times for a total of 150 basis points. Market conditions in the first
quarter of 2020 were very unpredictable and fast changing due to the start of
COVID-19 and the declaration of a global pandemic on March 11, 2020. The Fed's
reduction of interest rates was in response to this pandemic and caused
short-term and long-term Treasury rates to decline at a rapid pace to reach
all-time lows. During the first quarter of 2021, rates on the longer end of the
yield curve did increase causing slight declines in the unrealized gains on the
investment portfolio. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have significant
impacts on rates and the economy and management believes this will continue
throughout 2021, but the absolute value and direction of Treasury rates could
fluctuate as the pandemic recovery reaches new levels. Beyond interest rate
movements, there are also a number of other factors that influence bond pricing
including regulatory changes, financial performance of issuers, changes to
credit rating of insurers of bonds, changes in market perception of certain
classes of securities, and many more. Management monitors the changes in
interest rates and other market influences to assist in management of the
securities portfolio.



Any material increase in market interest rates would have a negative impact on
the market value of the Corporation's fixed income debt securities. As of March
31, 2021, approximately 75% of the Corporation's debt securities were fixed rate
securities with the other 25% variable rate. The variable rate instruments
generally experience very little impact to valuation based on a change in rates
because they trade on a spread over overnight rates such as LIBOR. However, with
the Federal Reserve drastically reducing the Federal Funds rate by 1.50% in
March of 2020 to 0.25%, caused the market to view floating rate bonds
differently, as the new effective yields on those securities would be
significantly reduced upon the next rate reset. Whereas fixed rate securities
without call options could maintain their effective yield in a new bond market
with sharply lower yields. Therefore, the valuation of the fixed rate securities
held up better when the securities portfolio was valued for March 31, 2020.
Since that time, the pricing of variable rate instruments has become more
rational and most bonds have experienced an increase in unrealized gain since
March of 2020. Generally the longer the bond and the longer the call protection,
the better the bond did in terms of valuation. The municipal bond sector is the
largest of the portfolio and, as a result, management will closely monitor the
10-year U.S. Treasury yield due to its impact on these securities. The other
sectors of the portfolio have shorter lives and duration and would be more
influenced by the 2-year and 5-year U.S. Treasury rates. The change in value of
unrealized gains and losses for the remainder of 2021 will be impacted by
movements in U.S. Treasury rates and could increase and decrease throughout the
remainder of the year as Treasury rates fluctuate.



The Corporation's effective duration increased in the first quarter of 2021 to
3.5, from 2.7 at December 31, 2020. Effective duration is a measurement of the
length of the securities portfolio with a higher level indicating more length
and more exposure to an increase in interest rates. The securities portfolio
base case effective duration was 2.2 as of March 31, 2020. Duration is expected
to remain stable or increase slightly throughout the remainder of 2021. The
Corporation increased effective duration by purchasing longer asset backed and
municipal securities in the first quarter of 2021. Additionally, with increasing
rates, pass-through structures of MBS and CMO instruments typically lengthen in
duration as principal payments decrease.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

Management's actions to maintain reasonable effective duration of the securities
portfolio are part of a broader asset liability plan to continually work to
mitigate future interest rate risk and fair value risk to the Corporation. Part
of that strategy is to retain higher levels of cash and cash equivalents to
increase liquidity and provide an immediate hedge against higher interest rates
and fair value risk. However, despite taking actions to mitigate the
Corporation's future risk, these risks are inherent to the banking model.
Unrealized gains and losses on securities will vary significantly according to
market forces. Management's focus will continue to be on the long-term
performance of these securities. While management has and will continue to take
gains from the portfolio when opportunities exist, the broader securities
strategy remains to buy and hold debt securities until maturity. Because market
interest rates were declining rapidly in 2020, there was some opportunity to
realize gains from the sales of securities. As a result, gains from the sales of
debt securities were higher in the first quarter of 2020 than the first quarter
of 2021.



The Corporation typically invests excess liquidity into securities, primarily
fixed-income bonds. The securities portfolio provides interest and dividend
income to supplement the interest income on loans. Additionally, the securities
portfolio assists in the management of both liquidity risk and interest rate
risk. In order to provide maximum flexibility for management of liquidity and
interest rate risk, the securities portfolio is classified as available for sale
and reported at fair value. Management adjusts the value of all the
Corporation's securities on a monthly basis to fair market value as determined
in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Management has
the ability and intent to hold all debt securities until maturity, and does not
generally record impairment on bonds that are currently valued below book value.
In addition to the fixed and variable rate bonds, the Corporation's equity
holdings consist of a small CRA-qualified mutual fund with a book and fair
market value of $6.2 million. The CRA fund is a Small Business Association (SBA)
variable rate fund with a stable dollar price. The Corporation also has a small
portfolio of bank stocks with a book value of $927,000 and fair market value of
$1,027,000 as of March 31, 2021. The fair value of the bank stocks was
significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the drastic devaluation of
bank stocks during 2020 but has rebounded as of March 31, 2021, and is
responsible for the large increase in gains on equity securities reported as of
March 31, 2021.


All securities and bonds are evaluated for impairment on a quarterly basis.
Should any impairment occur, management would write down the security to a fair
market value in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles,
with the amount of the write down recorded as a loss on securities.



Each quarter, management sets portfolio allocation guidelines and adjusts the security portfolio strategy generally based on the following factors:

· ALCO positions as to liquidity, credit risk, interest rate risk, and fair value

risk

· Growth of the loan portfolio

· Slope of the U.S. Treasury curve

· Relative performance of the various instruments, including spread to U.S.

Treasuries

· Duration and average length of the portfolio

· Volatility of the portfolio

· Direction of interest rates

· Economic factors impacting debt securities

The investment policy of the Corporation imposes guidelines to ensure diversification within the portfolio. The diversity specifications provide opportunities to shorten or lengthen duration, maximize yield, and mitigate credit risk. The composition of the securities portfolio based on fair market value is shown in the following table.

The largest movements within the securities portfolio were shaped by market factors, such as:

· slope of the U.S. Treasury curve and projected forward rates

· interest spread versus U.S. Treasury rates on the various securities

· pricing of the instruments, including supply and demand for the product

· structure of the instruments, including duration and average life

· portfolio weightings versus policy guidelines

· prepayment speeds on mortgage-backed securities and collateralized mortgage

obligations

· credit risk of each instrument and risk-based capital considerations

· Federal income tax considerations with regard to obligations of tax-free states

   and political subdivisions.



The Corporation's U.S. government agency sector decreased by $25.2 million, or
46.3%, since December 31, 2020, with the weighting decreased from 11.2% of the
portfolio to 5.4%. Management had purchased $35.5 million of short-term discount
notes at the end of 2020 to offset the Corporation's shares tax expense. These
bonds were sold in the first quarter of 2021 and are responsible for the decline
in this category. In the past, management's goal was to maintain agency
securities at approximately 10% of the securities portfolio. In the current rate
environment, management is comfortable maintaining agencies below this level. In
the past, this sector was important in maintaining adequate risk weightings of
the portfolio and to ensure sufficient U.S. government securities for pledging
purposes, as was utilizing both mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and
collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs) to do the same. Instead, Management
has increased the allocations of both asset-backed securities (ABS) and
obligations of states and political subdivisions (municipals) since March 31,
2020.



The Corporation's ABS and municipal sectors have increased significantly since
March 31, 2020, with ABS increasing $69.9 million, or 257.7%, and municipals
increasing $126.9 million, or 124.5%. ABS securities are floating rate student
loan pools which are instruments that will perform well in a rates-up
environment and offset the interest rate risk of the longer fixed-rate municipal
bonds. These securities provide a variable rate return materially above the
overnight Federal funds rate in a safe investment with a risk rating very
similar to that of U.S. Agency bonds. The asset-backed securities generally
provide monthly principal and interest payments to complement the Corporation's
ongoing cash flows. With liquidity and cash levels remaining high, management
views the ABS sector as a safe, higher yielding option than cash with the
qualities of cash in a rates-up environment.



Obligations of states and political subdivisions, or municipal bonds, are
tax-free and taxable securities that generally provide the highest yield in the
securities portfolio. They also carry the longest duration on average of any
instrument in the securities portfolio. Municipal tax-equivalent yields
generally start well above other taxable bonds. These instruments also
experience significant fair market value gains and losses when interest rates
decrease and increase. Municipal securities were purchased throughout 2020 and
the first quarter of 2021 due to market conditions that led to favorable yields
on some instruments. The Corporation also began purchasing some taxable
municipal securities that added to the value of this sector. Municipal bonds
represented 42.5% of the securities portfolio as of March 31, 2021, compared to
31.2% as of March 31, 2020. The Corporation's investment policy limits municipal
holdings to 150% of Tier 2 capital. As of March 31, 2021, municipal holdings
amounted to 153% of Tier 2 capital, slightly above this limit. The Corporation
plans to sell some municipal bonds to be back within policy guidelines by June
30, 2021.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The Corporation's U.S. agency MBS and CMO sectors have fluctuated since March
31, 2020, with MBS increasing $7.1 million, or 11.5%, and CMOs decreasing $15.8
million, or 28.0%. These two security types both consist of mortgage instruments
that pay monthly interest and principal, however the behavior of the two types
vary according to the structure of the mortgage pool or CMO instrument.
Management desires to maintain a substantial amount of MBS and CMOs in order to
assist in adding to and maintaining a stable five-year ladder of cash flows,
which is important in providing stable liquidity and interest rate risk
positions. Unlike the typical U.S. agency paper, corporate bonds, and
obligations of states and political subdivisions, which only pay principal at
final maturity, the U.S. agency MBS and CMO securities pay contractual monthly
principal and interest, but are also subject to additional prepayment of
principal. The combined effect of all of these instruments paying monthly
principal and interest provides the Corporation with a reasonably stable base
cash flow of approximately $2.5 - $3.0 million per month. Cash flows coming off
of MBS and CMOs do slow down and speed up as interest rates increase or
decrease, which has an impact on the portfolio's length and yield. As interest
rates decline, prepayment of principal on securities increases, the duration of
the security shortens, and the yield declines as more amortization is required
on premium bonds. When interest rates increase, the opposite of this occurs.
Despite the fluctuations that occur in terms of monthly cash flow as a result of
changing prepayment speeds, the monthly cash flow generated by U.S. agency MBS
and CMO securities is reasonably stable and as a group is material, and helps to
soften or smooth out the Corporation's total monthly cash flow from all
securities.



As of March 31, 2021, the fair value of the Corporation's corporate bonds
increased by $4.3 million, or 6.9%, from balances at March 31, 2020. Like any
security, corporate bonds have both positive and negative qualities and
management must evaluate these securities on a risk versus reward basis.
Corporate bonds add diversity to the portfolio and provide strong yields for
short maturities; however, by their very nature, corporate bonds carry a high
level of credit risk should the entity experience financial difficulties.
Management stands to possibly lose the entire principal amount if the entity
that issued the corporate paper fails. As a result of the higher level of credit
risk taken by purchasing a corporate bond, management has in place procedures to
closely analyze the financial health of the company as well as policy
guidelines. The guidelines include both maximum investment by issuer and minimal
credit ratings that must be met in order for management to purchase a corporate
bond. Financial analysis is conducted prior to every corporate bond purchase
with ongoing monitoring performed on all securities held.



By policy, management is to identify and recommend whether to hold or sell
securities with credit ratings that have fallen below minimum policy credit
ratings required at the time of purchase, or below investment grade. Management
monitors the security ratings on a monthly basis and reviews quarterly with the
Board of Directors. Management, with Board approval, determines whether it is in
the Corporation's best interest to continue to hold any security that has fallen
below policy guidelines or below investment grade based on the expectation of
recovery of market value or improved performance. At this time management has
elected, and the Board has approved, holding all securities that have fallen
below initial policy guidelines. As of March 31, 2021, no securities have fallen
below investment grade.



As of March 31, 2021, two of the 35 corporate securities held by the Corporation
showed an unrealized holding loss. These securities with unrealized holding
losses were valued at 99.7% of book value. The Corporation's investment policy
requires that corporate bonds have a minimum credit rating of A3 by Moody's or
A- by S&P or Fitch at the time of purchase, or an average or composite rating of
A-. As of March 31, 2021, all but one of the corporate bonds had at least one A3
or A- rating by one of the two predominate credit rating services, Moody's and
S&P. One corporate bond had a total book value of $2.0 million, and did not have
an A3 or A- rating as of March 31, 2021. The bond was rated Moody's Baa1 and S&P
BBB+, which are two levels above the minimum required to be considered
investment grade. Management conducts ongoing monitoring of this security and
has chosen to continue to hold the bond with Board approval. In addition, there
are fifteen corporate bond instruments that have split ratings with the highest
rating within the Corporation's initial purchase policy guidelines and the lower
rating outside of management guidelines, but all are still investment grade. The
fifteen bonds have a book value of $24.4 million with a $391,000 unrealized gain
as of March 31, 2021. Management conducts ongoing monitoring of these bonds with
the Board approving holding these securities on a quarterly basis. In addition,
the Corporation purchased $1,000,000 of a 4% subordinated debt note in the
fourth quarter of 2020 and $750,000 of a $3.5% subordinated debt note in the
first quarter of 2021, both of which are unrated. These are considered corporate
bonds as they each are subordinated debt of a domestic community bank but are
unrated because they are not a typical corporate issuance. Currently, there are
no indications that any of these bonds would discontinue contractual payments.



The Corporation's investment policy requires that municipal bonds not carrying
any insurance coverage have a minimum credit rating of A3 by Moody's or A- by
S&P or Fitch at the time of purchase. As of March 31, 2021, one municipal bond
with a par value of $500,000 was unrated, and no other municipal bonds carried a
credit rating under these levels.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

Management utilizes several municipal surveillance reports and engages an
independent non-brokerage service third party to perform enhanced municipal
credit evaluation. Management will typically sell municipal securities if
negative trends in financial performance are found and/or ratings have declined
to levels deemed unacceptable. As a result of the above monitoring and actions
taken to proactively sell weaker municipal credits, the Corporation's entire
municipal bond portfolio consists of investment grade credits.



The entire securities portfolio is reviewed monthly for credit risk and
evaluated quarterly for possible impairment. The Corporation's municipal and
corporate bonds present the largest credit risk and highest likelihood for any
possible impairment. Due to the ability for corporate credit situations to
change rapidly and ongoing nationwide concerns of pension obligations impacting
municipalities, management continues to closely monitor all corporate and
municipal securities.

(a) Residential real estate loans do not include mortgage loans serviced for

There was significant growth in the loan portfolio since March 31, 2020, and
moderate growth since December 31, 2020. Most major loan categories showed an
increase in balances from both time periods. Loan growth was significant in 2020
and continued with moderate growth in the first three months of 2021, primarily
due to the PPP loans which were put on the books beginning in the second quarter
of 2020 and continued into the first quarter of 2021.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis
The consumer residential real estate category represents the largest group of
loans for the Corporation. The consumer residential real estate category of
total loans increased from $339.3 million on March 31, 2020, to $346.6 million
on March 31, 2021, a 2.2% increase. This category includes closed-end fixed rate
or adjustable-rate residential real estate loans secured by 1-4 family
residential properties, including first and junior liens, and floating rate home
equity loans. The 1-4 family residential mortgages account for the vast majority
of residential real estate loans with fixed and floating home equity loans
making up the remainder. Historically, the entire consumer residential real
estate component of the loan portfolio has averaged close to 40% of total loans.
As of March 31, 2020, this percentage was 44.5%, and as of March 31, 2021, it
decreased to 41.2%. Management expects the consumer residential real estate
category to increase throughout the remainder of 2021 due to a continued effort
to increase mortgage volume, and the strategic decision to keep some
shorter-term mortgages on the books as opposed to selling them on the secondary
market. Although economic conditions for consumers have deteriorated with the
COVID-19 pandemic, increased unemployment, and decreased consumer spending, the
mortgage market continues to remain relatively strong as consumers refinance
existing debt to lower rates. Market conditions have been changing rapidly
throughout the first quarter of 2021 and the rest of the year is unpredictable,
but management would expect mortgage volume to continue at fairly high levels
from a historic perspective.



The first lien 1-4 family mortgages increased by $5.2 million, or 2.0%, from
March 31, 2020, to March 31, 2021. These first lien 1-4 family loans made up
76.6% of the residential real estate total as of March 31, 2020, and 76.5% as of
March 31, 2021. The vast majority of the first lien 1-4 family closed end loans
consist of single family personal first lien residential mortgages and home
equity loans, with the remainder consisting of 1-4 family residential
non-owner-occupied mortgages. In the first quarter of 2021, mortgage production
increased 3% over the previous quarter and was up 76% over the first quarter of
2020.  Purchase money origination constituted 55% of the Corporation's mortgage
originations for the quarter, with construction-only and construction-permanent
loans making up 51% of that mix.  With continued heavy refinance activity, the
percentage of mortgage originations going in the Corporation's held for
investment mortgage portfolio declined quarter-over-quarter, with more customers
opting for held-for-sale fixed rate products.  In the first quarter of 2021, 47%
of all mortgage originations were held in the mortgage portfolio, 46% of which
were adjustable rate mortgages.  As of March 31, 2021, ARM balances were $124.7
million, representing 47.0% of the 1-4 family residential loan portfolio of the
Corporation.  The ARM product is beneficial to the Corporation as it limits the
interest rate risk to a much shorter time period. Low rates continued to drive
overall strong production volume and the gains on the sale of mortgages
increased by 25% quarter-over-quarter.



As of March 31, 2021, the remainder of the residential real estate loans
consisted of $10.6 million of fixed rate junior lien home equity loans, and
$70.9 million of variable rate home equity lines of credit (HELOCs). This
compares to $10.7 million of fixed rate junior lien home equity loans, and $68.6
million of HELOCs as of March 31, 2020. Therefore, combined, these two types of
home equity loans increased from $79.3 million to $81.5 million, an increase of
2.8%. The majority of borrowers have been choosing variable rate HELOC loans in
the historically low rate environment. With no sign of the Federal Reserve
moving to increase rates, management expects HELOC activity to increase with
customers choosing variable rate product over fixed rate product until rates
begin to increase again.


Commercial real estate makes up 40.9% of total loans as of March 31, 2021,
compared to 41.5% of total loans as of March 31, 2020. Within the commercial
real estate segment, the increase has primarily been in commercial mortgages,
with agriculture mortgages and construction loans remaining fairly stable.
Agricultural mortgages increased marginally, by $0.7 million, or 0.4%, from
$177.4 million as of March 31, 2020, to $178.1 million as of March 31, 2021.
Dairy lending remains constrained with milk prices at three-year lows and it
does not appear pricing will improve materially in the immediate future. There
have been overcapacity issues resulting in some consolidation of the area's
larger milk producers. Several dairy farmers have left the industry or are in
the process of doing so. While dairy remains the largest agricultural loan
concentration, management believes dairy loans will decline as a percentage of
total agricultural loans with other non-dairy agricultural areas growing.
Currently, management is experiencing more growth in specialty crops and other
areas outside of dairy like poultry and layers. Management anticipates that
agricultural mortgages may increase through the remainder of 2021 as the economy
stabilizes and more farmers move forward with capital improvements or expansion
of current operations.



Commercial mortgages increased $24.9 million, or 20.7%, from balances at March
31, 2020. Commercial mortgages as a percentage of the total loan portfolio
increased to 17.2% as of March 31, 2021, compared to 15.8% at March 31, 2020.
New loan production in this segment is currently outpacing normal principal
payments, pay downs, and payoffs. Commercial real estate loans have shown solid
growth as a number of businesses move ahead on commercial projects. Management
expects commercial real estate loans to remain stable as a percentage of the
Corporation's loans for the remainder of 2021.

                               ENB FINANCIAL CORP

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The Corporation's commercial construction loan balances increased by $2.5
million, or 13.5%, from March 31, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Management was
experiencing some demand for smaller residential builds like construction on
existing lots but no new large scale projects. Commercial construction loans
were 2.5% of the total loan portfolio as of March 31, 2020 and 2021.



The other area of commercial lending is non-real estate secured commercial
lending, referred to as commercial and industrial lending. Commercial and
industrial loans not secured by real estate accounted for 17.3% of total loans
as of March 31, 2021, compared to 13.3% as of March 31, 2020. In scope, the
commercial and industrial loan sector, at 17.3% of total loans, is significantly
smaller than the commercial real estate sector at 40.9% of total loans. This is
consistent with management's credit preference for obtaining real estate
collateral when making commercial loans. The balance of total commercial and
industrial loans increased from $101.0 million at March 31, 2020, to $145.7
million at March 31, 2021, a 44.3% increase. This category of loans generally
includes unsecured lines of credit, truck, equipment, and receivable and
inventory loans, in addition to tax-free loans to municipalities. The balance at
March 31, 2021, also includes the PPP loans, which has declined rapidly as these
loans are forgiven by the SBA after businesses prove they used the funds for
qualified expenses. Management anticipates that these loans will experience a
significant decline in the remainder of 2021.



The Corporation provides credit to many small and medium-sized businesses. Much
of this credit is in the form of Prime-based lines of credit to local businesses
where the line may not be secured by real estate, but is based on the health of
the borrower with other security interests on accounts receivable, inventory,
equipment, or through personal guarantees. Commercial and industrial loans,
including PPP loans, increased to $111.0 million at March 31, 2021, a $47.3
million, or 74.3% increase, from the $63.7 million at March 31, 2020. This
increase was driven solely by the generation of PPP loans during the second and
third quarters of 2020 and then again during the first quarter of 2021. The
outstanding PPP loan balances were impacted by the forgiveness of some of the
first round of PPP loans during the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter
of 2021, but new loan generation during the first quarter of 2021 offset some of
the forgiven balances. The tax-free loans declined by $0.3 million, or 2.1%,
from balances at March 31, 2020, and the commercial and industrial agricultural
loans declined by $2.3 million, or 10.9%.



The consumer loan portfolio decreased to $4.8 million at March 31, 2021, from
$5.6 million at March 31, 2020. Consumer loans made up 0.6% of total loans on
March 31 2021, and 0.7% on March 31, 2020. The long-term trend over the past
decade has seen homeowners turning to the equity in their homes to finance cars
and education rather than traditional consumer loans that are generally
unsecured. Slightly higher demand for unsecured credit is being outpaced by
principal payments on existing loans resulting in the decrease in balances.
Management anticipates that the Corporation's level of consumer loans will
likely remain stable as a percentage of the portfolio, as the need for
additional unsecured credit is generally offset by those borrowers wishing to
reduce debt levels and move away from the higher cost of unsecured financing
relative to other forms of real estate secured financing.

The total balance of non-performing assets decreased by $2.4 million, or 74.1%,
and $1.3 million, or 60.3%, from balances at March 31, 2020 and December 31,
2020, respectively. The decrease from the prior periods was primarily due to
lower levels of loans past due 90 days or more as well as a decrease in
non-performing troubled debt restructurings (TDRs). There were no non-performing
TDR loans as of March 31, 2021 or December 31, 2020. A TDR is a loan where
management has granted a concession to the borrower from the original terms. A
concession is generally granted in order to improve the financial position of
the borrower and improve the likelihood of full collection by the lender. There
were two non-performing TDRs as of March 31, 2020; an agriculture mortgage with
a balance of $677,000 which had cash flow difficulties and a modification in
payment terms; and a $439,000 real estate secured loan with a payment
modification to allow annual interest and principal payments. Non-accrual loans
decreased, by $1.3 million, or 65.1%, since March 31, 2020, and loans past due
90 days or more and still accruing were up slightly from the prior year period,
and down more significantly, by $1.2 million, or 89.0% since December 31, 2020.
The $1.3 million of non-accrual reduction that occurred between March 31, 2020
and December 31, 2020 was due to two commercial borrowers paying off their loans
during the remainder of 2020. One commercial borrower with three non-accrual
loans totaling over $1.0 million paid them off in the second quarter of 2020,
while another commercial borrower with a $92,000 non-accrual loan was paid
off
in December 2020.


Management continues to monitor delinquency trends and the level of non-performing loans closely. At this time, management believes that the potential for material losses related to non-performing loans is decreasing with the level of delinquencies and non-performing loans lower than what was experienced throughout 2020.

There was no other real estate owned (OREO) as of March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020, or March 31, 2020.






Allowance for Credit Losses



The allowance for credit losses is established to cover any losses inherent in
the loan portfolio. Management reviews the adequacy of the allowance each
quarter based upon a detailed analysis and calculation of the allowance for
credit losses. This calculation is based upon a systematic methodology for
determining the allowance for credit losses in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles. The calculation includes estimates and is based
upon losses inherent in the loan portfolio. The allowance calculation includes
specific provisions for under-performing loans and general allocations to cover
anticipated losses on all loan types based on historical losses. The calculation
is also influenced by nine qualitative factors that are adjusted on a quarterly
basis as needed. Based on the quarterly credit loss calculation, management will
adjust the allowance for credit losses through the provision as necessary.
Changes to the allowance for credit losses during the year are primarily
affected by five main factors:



 · Historical loan losses

· Qualitative factor adjustments including levels of delinquent and

non-performing loans

· Growth trends of the loan portfolio

· Recovery of loans previously charged off


 · Provision for loan losses



Strong credit and collateral policies have been instrumental in producing a
favorable history of loan losses for the Corporation. The Allowance for Credit
Losses table below shows the activity in the allowance for credit losses for the
three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020. At the bottom of
the table, two benchmark percentages are shown. The first is net charge-offs as
a percentage of average loans outstanding for the year. The second is the total
allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total loans.

Charge-offs for the three months ended March 31, 2021, were $14,000, compared to
$6,000 for the same period in 2020. Management typically charges off unsecured
debt over 90 days delinquent with little likelihood of recovery. In the first
three months of 2021 and 2020, the Corporation charged off several smaller
amounts related to consumer loans. Recoveries were also low in the first three
months of 2020 and 2021 with only total recoveries of $2,000 in the first
quarter of 2021 and $12,000 in the first quarter of 2020.



The allowance as a percentage of total loans represents the portion of the total
loan portfolio for which an allowance has been provided. Management regularly
reviews the overall risk profile of the loan portfolio and the impact that
current economic trends have on the Corporation's loans. The financial industry
typically evaluates the quality of loans on a scale with "unclassified"
representing healthy loans, "special mention" being the first indication of
credit concern, and several successive classified ratings indicating further
credit declines of "substandard," "doubtful," and, ultimately, "loss."



The Corporation's level of classified loans was $21.9 million on March 31, 2021,
compared to $25.8 million on March 31, 2020. Total classified loans increased
during 2020 but then decreased by December 31, 2020, and into the first quarter
of 2021. Having more loans in a classified status could result in a larger
allowance as higher amounts of projected historical losses and qualitative
factors are attached to these loans. In addition to this impact, management
performs a specific allocation test on these classified loans. There was $1.1
million of specifically allocated allowance against the classified loans as of
March 31, 2021, $1.1 million of specific allocation as of December 31, 2020, and
$114,000 of specific allocation as of March 31, 2020. The higher specific
allocation at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, is related to a customer
with ongoing business concerns. Typically, as the classified loan balances
fluctuate, the associated specific allowance applied to them fluctuates,
resulting in a lower or higher required allowance.



The net charge-offs as a percentage of average total loans outstanding indicates
the percentage of the Corporation's total loan portfolio that has been charged
off during the period, after reducing charge-offs by recoveries. The Corporation
continues to experience low net charge-off percentages due to strong credit
practices. Management continually monitors delinquencies, classified loans, and
non-performing loans closely in regard to how they may impact charge-offs in the
future. The actual charge-offs have been running at low levels, and management
expects this to continue through the remainder of 2021. Management practices are
in place to reduce the number and severity of losses. In regard to severely
delinquent loans, management attempts to improve the Corporation's collateral or
credit position and, in the case of a loan workout, intervene to minimize
additional charge-offs.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The allowance as a percentage of total loans was 1.51% as of March 31, 2021,
1.50% as of December 31, 2020, and 1.28% as of March 31, 2020. Management
anticipates that the allowance percentage will remain fairly stable during the
remainder of 2021, as the allowance balance is increased with additional
provision expense to account for loan growth throughout the year. It is typical
for the allowance for credit losses to contain a small amount of excess
reserves. Over the long term, management targets and excess reserve at
approximately 5% knowing that the reserve can fluctuate. The excess reserve
stood at 6.0% as of March 31, 2021. Management would anticipate that this
unallocated portion of the allowance will decrease throughout the remainder
of
2021.





Premises and Equipment


Premises and equipment, net of accumulated depreciation, decreased by $0.3
million, or 1.2%, to $24.7 million as of March 31, 2021, from $25.0 million as
of March 31, 2020. As of March 31, 2021, $335,000 was classified as construction
in process compared to $239,000 as of March 31, 2020. Fixed assets declined as a
result of depreciation outpacing new purchases in 2021.





Regulatory Stock


The Corporation owns multiple forms of regulatory stock that is required in
order to be a member of the Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) and members of banks such
as the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) and Atlantic Community Bankers Bank (ACBB).
The Corporation's $6.2 million of regulatory stock holdings as of March 31,
2021, consisted of $5.6 million of FHLB of Pittsburgh stock, $531,000 of FRB
stock, and $37,000 of Atlantic Community Bancshares, Inc. stock, the Bank
Holding Company of ACBB. All of these stocks are valued at a stable dollar
price, which is the price used to purchase or liquidate shares; therefore, the
investment is carried at book value and there is no fair market value
adjustment.



The Corporation's investment in FHLB stock is required for membership in the
organization. The amount of stock required is dependent upon the relative size
of outstanding FHLB borrowings and mortgage activity. Excess stock is typically
repurchased from the Corporation at par if the borrowings decline to a
predetermined level. The Corporation's FHLB stock position was $5.6 million on
March 31, 2021, $5.9 million on December 31, 2020, and $7.0 million on March 31,
2020, with no excess capital stock position. Any future stock repurchases would
be the result of lower borrowing balances. Stock repurchases by the FHLB occur
every quarter.


The 2021 first quarter dividend declaration made on FHLB stock by FHLB of Pittsburgh was at a 5.75% annualized yield on activity stock and 2.50% annualized yield on membership stock. Most of the Corporation's dividend is based on the activity stock, which is based on the amount of borrowings and mortgage activity with FHLB.





Deposits



The Corporation's total ending deposits at March 31, 2021, increased by $72.6
million, or 5.8%, and by $342.5 million, or 34.9%, from December 31, 2020, and
March 31, 2020, respectively. Customer deposits are the Corporation's primary
source of funding for loans and securities. In the past few years, the economic
concerns and volatility of the equity markets continued to lead customers to
banks for safe places to invest money, despite historically low interest rates.
The mix of the Corporation's deposit categories has changed moderately since
March 31, 2020, with the changes being a $216.2 million, or 59.4% increase in
non-interest bearing demand deposit accounts, an $18.0 million, or 63.3%
increase in interest bearing demand balances, a $29.5 million, or 30.9% increase
in NOW balances, a $10.5 million, or 7.5% increase in money market account
balances, an $81.1 million, or 36.5% increase in savings account balances, and a
$12.8 million, or 9.7% decrease in time deposit balances.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

The growth across most categories of core deposit accounts is a direct result of
the PPP funding, government stimulus payments, and the change in customer's
spending habits during the uncertain economic conditions brought on by COVID-19.
Due to limited safe investment options outside of banks, the Corporation saw
customers bring deposit funds back to regular core checking and savings accounts
in an effort to provide safety and financial flexibility. With the decrease in
rates that occurred during 2020, customer deposits increased with few options in
the market to earn a higher return. Customers view demand deposit, money market
and savings accounts as the safest, most convenient place to maintain funds for
maximum flexibility. Management believes deposit balances may continue to
increase, but at a slower pace, through the remainder of 2021.



The Deposits by Major Classification table, shown below, provides the balances of each category for March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020, and March 31, 2020.

The growth and mix of deposits is often driven by several factors including:

· Convenience and service provided

· Current rates paid on deposits relative to competitor rates

· Level of and perceived direction of interest rates

· Financial condition and perceived safety of the institution

· Possible risks associated with other investment opportunities

· Level of fees on deposit products





The Corporation has been a stable presence in the local market area that has
experienced several large bank mergers over the past several years. Three new
convenient locations were added since 2016, significantly expanding the
Corporation's footprint, with a presence in three counties with a total of
thirteen branch locations. The Corporation has a history of offering competitive
interest rates and fair and understandable service fees because of a strong
commitment to the customers and the communities that it serves. Management has
always priced products and services in a manner that makes them affordable for
all customers. This in turn creates a high degree of customer loyalty and a
stable deposit base. Additionally, as financial institutions have come under
increased scrutiny from both regulators and customers, the Corporation has
maintained an outstanding reputation. Management believes the Corporation's
deposit base has benefited as a result of a growing desire by customers to seek
a longstanding, reliable financial institution as a partner to meet their
financial needs.



Time deposits are typically a more rate-sensitive product, making them a source
of funding that is prone to balance variations depending on the interest rate
environment and how the Corporation's time deposit rates compare with the local
market rates. Time deposits fluctuate as consumers search for the best rates in
the market, with less allegiance to any particular financial institution. As of
March 31, 2021, time deposit balances had decreased $12.8 million, or 9.7%, from
March 31, 2020, and increased slightly from December 31, 2020. The Corporation
has experienced a slow and steady shift in deposit trends over the past five
years as customers have moved money from time deposits into core checking and
savings accounts. With the Federal Reserve rate decreases in 2020, there is
minimal differences between shorter term CD rates and interest bearing
non-maturity deposits, influencing customers to accumulate their funds in a
liquid account that can be accessed at any time. This has resulted in declining
time deposit balances and more significant growth in the core deposit areas.

Borrowings


Total borrowings were $72.4 million, $74.4 million, and $75.0 million as of
March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020, and March 31, 2020, respectively. Of these
amounts, $3.5 million reflect short-term funds as of March 31, 2020, with no
short-term funds outstanding as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.
Short-term funds are used for immediate liquidity needs and are not typically
part of an ongoing liquidity or interest rate risk strategy; therefore, they
fluctuate more rapidly. When short-term funds are used, they are purchased
through correspondent and member bank relationships as overnight borrowings or
through the FHLB for terms less than one year.



Total long-term borrowings, borrowings initiated for terms longer than one year,
were $52.8 million as of March 31, 2021, $54.8 million as of December 31, 2020,
and $71.5 million as of March 31, 2020. The long-term borrowings for the
Corporation were made up entirely of FHLB long-term advances at March 31, 2021,
December 31, 2020, and March 31, 2020. FHLB advances are used as a secondary
source of funding and to mitigate interest rate risk. These long-term funding
instruments are typically a more effective funding instrument in terms of
selecting the exact amount, rate, and term of funding rather than trying to
source the same through deposits. In this manner, management can efficiently
meet known liquidity and interest rate risk needs. The decrease in FHLB
borrowings since March 31, 2020, can be attributed to management taking
advantage of declining rates by prepaying FHLB advances and incurring penalties
in order to save on interest expense in future years.



In order to limit the Corporation's exposure and reliance to a single funding
source, the Corporation's Asset Liability Policy sets a goal of maintaining the
amount of borrowings from the FHLB to 15% of asset size. As of March 31, 2021,
the Corporation was significantly under this policy guideline at 6.4% of asset
size with $52.8 million of total FHLB borrowings. The Corporation also has a
policy that limits total borrowings from all sources to 150% of the
Corporation's capital. As of March 31, 2021, the Corporation was significantly
under this policy guideline at 56.2% of capital with $72.4 million total
borrowings from all sources. The Corporation has maintained FHLB borrowings and
total borrowings well within these policy guidelines throughout all of 2020 and
through the first three months of 2021.



The Corporation continues to be well under the FHLB maximum borrowing capacity
(MBC), which is currently $449.3 million. The Corporation's two internal policy
limits mentioned above are far more restrictive than the FHLB MBC, which is
calculated and set quarterly by FHLB.



In addition to the long-term advances funded through the FHLB, on December 30,
2020, the Corporation completed the sale of a subordinated debt note offering.
The Corporation sold $20.0 million of subordinated debt notes with a maturity
date of December 30, 2030. These notes are non-callable for 5 years and carry a
fixed interest rate of 4% per year for 5 years and then convert to a floating
rate for the remainder of the term. The notes can be redeemed at par beginning 5
years prior to maturity. The notes are structured to qualify as Tier 2 capital
for the Corporation and any funds it invests in the Bank qualify as Tier 1
capital at the Bank. As of March 31, 2021, $15.0 million of funds were invested
in the Bank. The Corporation paid an issuance fee of 2% of the total issue that
will be amortized to the call date on a pro-rata basis.





Stockholders' Equity



Federal regulatory authorities require banks to meet minimum capital levels. The
Corporation, as well as the Bank, as the solely owned subsidiary of the
Corporation, maintains capital ratios well above those minimum levels. The
risk-weighted capital ratios are calculated by dividing capital by total
risk-weighted assets. Regulatory guidelines determine the risk-weighted assets
by assigning assets to specific risk-weighted categories. The calculation of
tier I capital to risk-weighted average assets does not include an add-back to
capital for the amount of the allowance for credit losses, thereby making this
ratio lower than the total capital to risk-weighted assets ratio.



The following tables reflect the capital ratios for the Corporation and Bank compared to the regulatory capital requirements.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

On December 30, 2020, the Corporation issued $20 million of subordinated debt in
order to support capital levels which had declined due to the sharp balance
sheet growth that had occurred during 2020. The $20 million of subordinated debt
qualifies as Tier 2 capital at the Holding Company level. Amounts of the
subordinated debt can be transferred to the Bank where it qualifies as Tier 1
Capital. As of March 31, 2021, $15.0 million of this subordinated debt funding
was transferred down to the Bank to rebuild the Bank's capital levels. As of
March 31, 2021 the Bank's Tier 1 Leverage Ratio stood at 9.5% while the
Corporation's Tier 1 Leverage Ratio was 8.6%. The Bank's Tier 1 Leverage Ratio
policy range is 9.0% to 12.0% while the Corporation's Tier 1 Leverage Ratio
policy range is 8.0% - 12.0%. Tier 1 Capital levels at the Corporation level
were not impacted by the subordinated debt issue since subordinated debt only
qualifies as Tier 2 Capital at the Corporate level. As such, in terms of the
Corporation's regulatory capital ratios, only the Total Capital to Risk-Weighted
Assets ratio was enhanced as a result of the $20 million subordinated debt
issue. Most of the marked improvement in capital ratios occurred at the Bank
level.



Dividends play a vital role in the management of capital levels of the
Corporation. Management seeks a balance between maintaining a sufficient cushion
of excess capital above regulatory limits versus the payment of dividends to the
shareholders as a direct return of their investment. Due to a constant stream of
stable earnings, the payment of a dividend is needed to maintain capital at
acceptable levels in order to provide an adequate return of equity to the
shareholders.



The Corporation's dividends per share for the three months ended March 31, 2021,
were $0.16, the same as the dividend paid out in the first three months of 2020.
Dividends are paid from current earnings and available retained earnings. The
Corporation's current capital plan calls for management to maintain tier I
capital to average assets between 8.0% and 12.0%. As a secondary measurement,
the capital plan also targets a long-term dividend payout ratio in the range of
30% to 45%. This ratio will vary according to income, but over the long term,
the Corporation's goal is to maintain and target a payout ratio within this
range. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the payout ratio was 19.8%.
This dividend payout ratio is low as a result of the higher earnings in the
first quarter of 2021, some of which are non-recurring. Management currently
anticipates that the payout ratio will return to more normal levels as 2021
progresses. Management's goal is to maintain all regulatory capital ratios at
current levels. Future dividend payout ratios are dependent on the future level
of earnings and other factors that impact the level of capital.



The amount of unrealized gain or loss on the securities portfolio is reflected,
net of tax, as an adjustment to capital, as required by U.S. generally accepted
accounting principles. This is recorded as accumulated other comprehensive
income or loss in the capital section of the consolidated balance sheet. An
unrealized gain increases capital, while an unrealized loss reduces capital.
This requirement takes the position that, if the Corporation liquidated the
securities portfolio at the end of each period, the current unrealized gain or
loss on the securities portfolio would directly impact the Corporation's
capital. As of March 31, 2021, the Corporation showed an unrealized gain, net of
tax, of $2,924,000, compared to an unrealized gain of $7,958,000 at December 31,
2020, and an unrealized gain of $1,103,000 as of March 31, 2020. These
unrealized gains, net of tax are excluded from capital when calculating the tier
I capital to average assets numbers above. The amount of unrealized gain or loss
on the securities portfolio, shown net of tax, as an adjustment to capital, does
not include any actual impairment taken on securities, which is shown as a
reduction to income on the Corporation's Consolidated Statements of Income. No
impairment was recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2021, or in the same
prior year period. The changes in unrealized gains and losses are due to normal
changes in market valuations of the Corporation's securities as a result of
interest rate movements.




Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

In the normal course of business, the Corporation typically has off-balance
sheet arrangements related to loan funding commitments. These arrangements may
impact the Corporation's financial condition and liquidity if they were to be
exercised within a short period of time. As discussed in the following liquidity
section, the Corporation has in place sufficient liquidity alternatives to meet
these obligations. The following table presents information on the commitments
by the Corporation as of March 31, 2021.

Significant Legislation


Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act




In 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act
(Dodd-Frank) was signed into law. Dodd-Frank is intended to affect a fundamental
restructuring of federal banking regulation. Among other things, Dodd-Frank
creates a new Financial Stability Oversight Council to identify systemic risks
in the financial system and gives federal regulators new authority to take
control of and liquidate financial firms. Dodd-Frank additionally creates a new
independent federal regulator to administer federal consumer protection laws.
Dodd-Frank is expected to have a significant impact on the Corporation's
business operations as its provisions take effect. It is difficult to predict at
this time what specific cumulative impact Dodd-Frank and the yet-to-be-written
implementing rules and regulations will have on community banks. However, it is
expected that, at a minimum, they will increase the Corporation's operating and
compliance costs and could increase interest expense. Among the provisions that
have already or are likely to affect the Corporation are the following:



Holding Company Capital Requirements


Dodd-Frank requires the Federal Reserve to apply consolidated capital
requirements to bank holding companies that are no less stringent than those
currently applied to depository institutions. Under these standards, trust
preferred securities will be excluded from tier I capital unless such securities
were issued prior to May 19, 2010, by a bank holding company with less than
$15 billion in assets. Dodd-Frank additionally requires that bank regulators
issue countercyclical capital requirements so that the required amount of
capital increases in times of economic expansion and decreases in times of
economic contraction, are consistent with safety and soundness.



Deposit Insurance


Dodd-Frank permanently increased the maximum deposit insurance amount for banks,
savings institutions, and credit unions to $250,000 per depositor. Additionally,
on February 7, 2011, the Board of Directors of the FDIC approved a final rule
based on the Dodd-Frank Act that revises the assessment base from one based on
domestic deposits to one based on assets. This change, which was effective in
April 2011, saved the Corporation a significant amount of FDIC insurance
premiums from the significantly higher FDIC insurance premiums placed into
effect after the financial crisis.



Corporate Governance


Dodd-Frank requires publicly traded companies to give stockholders a non-binding
vote on executive compensation at least every three years, a non-binding vote
regarding the frequency of the vote on executive compensation at least every six
years, and a non-binding vote on "golden parachute" payments in connection with
approvals of mergers and acquisitions unless previously voted on by
shareholders. The SEC has finalized the rules implementing these requirements
which took effect on January 21, 2011. The Corporation was exempt from these
requirements until January 21, 2013, due to its status as a smaller reporting
company. Additionally, Dodd-Frank directs the federal banking regulators to
promulgate rules prohibiting excessive compensation paid to executives of
depository institutions and their holding companies with assets in excess of
$1.0 billion, regardless of whether the company is publicly traded. Dodd-Frank
also gives the SEC authority to prohibit broker discretionary voting on
elections of directors and executive compensation matters.

                      Management's Discussion and Analysis

Limits on Interchange Fees

Dodd-Frank amended the Electronic Fund Transfer Act to, among other things, give
the Federal Reserve the authority to establish rules regarding interchange fees
charged for electronic debit transactions by payment card issuers having assets
over $10 billion and to enforce a new statutory requirement that such fees be
reasonable and proportional to the actual cost of a transaction to the issuer.



Consumer Financial Protection Bureau


Dodd-Frank created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which is
granted broad rulemaking, supervisory and enforcement powers under various
federal consumer financial protection laws, including the Equal Credit
Opportunity Act, Truth in Lending Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act,
Fair Credit Reporting Act, Fair Debt Collection Act, the Consumer Financial
Privacy Provisions of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and certain other statutes.
The CFPB has examination and primary enforcement authority with respect to
depository institutions with $10 billion or more in assets. Smaller institutions
will be subject to rules promulgated by the CFPB but will continue to be
examined and supervised by federal banking regulators for consumer compliance
purposes. The CFPB will have authority to prevent unfair, deceptive, or abusive
practices in connection with the offering of consumer financial products.
Dodd-Frank authorizes the CFPB to establish certain minimum standards for the
origination of residential mortgages including a determination of the borrower's
ability to repay. In addition, Dodd-Frank will allow borrowers to raise certain
defenses to foreclosure if they receive any loan other than a "qualified
mortgage" as defined by the CFPB. Dodd-Frank permits states to adopt consumer
protection laws and standards that are more stringent than those adopted at the
federal level and, in certain circumstances, permits state attorneys general to
enforce compliance with both the state and federal laws and regulations.



Prohibition Against Charter Conversions of Troubled Institutions

Dodd-Frank prohibits a depository institution from converting from a state to
federal charter or vice versa while it is the subject of a cease and desist
order or other formal enforcement action or a memorandum of understanding with
respect to a significant supervisory matter unless the appropriate federal
banking agency gives notice of the conversion to the federal or state authority
that issued the enforcement action and that agency does not object within 30
days. The notice must include a plan to address the significant supervisory
matter. The converting institution must also file a copy of the conversion
application with its current federal regulator which must notify the resulting
federal regulator of any ongoing supervisory or investigative proceedings that
are likely to result in an enforcement action and provide access to all
supervisory and investigative information relating thereto.



Interstate Branching


Dodd-Frank authorizes national and state banks to establish branches in other
states to the same extent as a bank chartered by that state would be permitted.
Previously, banks could only establish branches in other states if the host
state expressly permitted out-of-state banks to establish branches in that
state. Accordingly, banks will be able to enter new markets more freely.



Limits on Interstate Acquisitions and Mergers

Dodd-Frank precludes a bank holding company from engaging in an interstate
acquisition - the acquisition of a bank outside its home state - unless the bank
holding company is both well capitalized and well managed. Furthermore, a bank
may not engage in an interstate merger with another bank headquartered in
another state unless the surviving institution will be well capitalized and well
managed. The previous standard in both cases was adequately capitalized and
adequately managed.
