Total assets of the Company grew $10.0 million or 1.9% since December 31, 2017 and totaled $532.0 million as of December 31, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of continued organic growth in deposits which increased to $446.1 million as of December 31, 2018, an increase of $6.7 million or 1.5% since the previous year end. Total assets and deposits decreased in the 4th quarter of 2018 due to seasonal deposit outflows which resulted in a decrease of $29.1 million or 5.2% in total assets and a $28.7 million or 6.0% decrease in deposits since September 30, 2018. The loan portfolio increased $32.9 million or 11.2% since the previous year end while increasing $9.0 million or 2.8% since the end of the previous quarter. Loan growth during 2018 resulted in an increase in the loans to deposit ratio from 67.0% as of December 31, 2017 to 73.4% as of December 31, 2018. Funding for loan growth during 2018 was primarily provided by a decrease in investment securities which declined $16.8 million or 17.5% since December 31, 2017.

Average assets for the year ended December 31, 2018 increased $24.0 million or 4.8% as compared to the previous year. The increase in average assets is the result of continued organic growth in average deposits which increased to $442.3 million for 2018, an increase of $24.7 million or 5.9% compared to the prior year. Significant fluctuations in deposits can occur from period to period due to customer activity, and therefore a comparison of average deposits provides a better measurement of overall deposit activity. At December 31, 2017, several large temporary deposits were made by certain customers and resulted in year-over-year deposit growth rates to be much lower than average deposit growth rates for 2018. Average loans increased $27.6 million or 9.8% which exceeded the growth rate of average deposits and as a result the average loans to average deposits ratio increased from 67.6% in 2017 to 70.1% in 2018.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2018 increased 34.5% compared to the previous year which outpaced growth in average assets and average equity during the same period. This resulted in an increase in Return on Average Assets from 1.09% to 1.40% and an increase in Return on Equity from 6.72% to 8.75% compared to the previous year. Net income per share increased 35.4% to $2.64 per share for the year ended December 31, 2018 as compared to $1.95 per share in the prior year. In addition to the regular annual dividend, the Company paid a special dividend of $0.25 per share in April 2018 which resulted in a dividend payout ratio of 46.8% for the current year.

Income before taxes for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $9.7 million, an increase of $1.3 million or 15.0% compared to the previous year. The primary contributor to the increase was a $2.0 million or 12.2% increase in net interest income resulting from a combination of organic loan growth, higher investment yields and increases in the Federal Funds interest rate. In addition, non-interest income for 2018 increased $238 thousand or 10.0% primarily as a result of a $389 thousand gain recognized upon the sale of an investment security in the 1st quarter of 2018. Partially offsetting the aforementioned increases in income was a $940 thousand or 9.3% increase in non-interest expense. During the 1st quarter of 2018 the Company recorded a $411 thousand loss related to an unauthorized wire transfer by a bank employee. The unauthorized wire transfer loss was previously disclosed as a subsequent event in the Company's 2017 financial statements and further discussed in Company's 1st quarter 2018 earnings release. The remaining $529 thousand increase in non-interest expense is primarily attributable to the Company's expansion into the Eastern Shore of Virginia market with a branch location in Chincoteague, Virginia and a Loan Production Office in Onley, Virginia. The combined growth in net interest income and non-interest income exceeded the increase in non-interest expenses which resulted in a decrease in the Company's efficiency ratio to 54.1% for the year ended December 31, 2018 as compared to 54.7% in the prior year.

Net income for year ended December 31, 2018 was $7.4 million, an increase of $1.9 million or 34.5% compared to the prior year. The increase in net income was a result of the $1.3 million or 15.0% increase in income before taxes as discussed above and a $641 thousand or 22.1% reduction in income tax expense. In December 2017, the Tax Cut and Jobs Act was enacted, which decreased the Company's federal income tax rate from 34% to 21% beginning January 1, 2018. As a result, the Company's effective income tax rate has dropped from 34.4% in 2017 to 23.3% for 2018.
