Results of Operations
For the three-month period
ended June 30, 2021 and 2020
Net interest income increased $1.8 million, or 8.0%, for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the same period
of 2020, due to a $914 thousand increase in interest income of as well as an $852 thousand decrease in interest expense. Interest income included $2.8 million of accretion of PPP loan fees during the quarter.
The increase in interest income was due to an increase in average earning assets of $248.1 million,
partially offset by a 24 basis point decrease in average yields. Interest income included $2.8 million of PPP fees as well as accretion income of purchased loan portfolios of $565.3 thousand.
The decrease in interest expense is primarily due to a decrease in average rates of 24 basis points offset by an increase in average interest-bearing
liabilities of $118.3 million.
Net interest margin decreased 8 basis points to 3.53% for the second quarter of 2021, compared to 3.61% for the same
period a year ago.
PPP loans averaged $207.5 million during the quarter at an average yield of 6.39%, including the related fee accretion, which
increased the margin by 23 basis points.

Loan balances have declined during the first half of 2021, primarily due to a net decline in PPP loans. Removing the effects
of PPP loans, the loan portfolio would have increased $26.0 million, or 1.4%. Commercial Real Estate continued to grow due to consistent demand in the
Occupied category. Real Estate Construction
loans increased as the construction season got underway during the second quarter. Construction availability remains near
highs. Commercial and Agriculture loans have been negatively impacted by the
amount of governmental stimulus money. The decrease in Residential Real Estate continues as a result of portfolio loans refinanced into saleable mortgage products.
Paycheck Protection Program
During 2021, we processed
approximately 1,300 loans totaling $131.1 million of PPP loans as part of the second round of the PPP. This is in addition to the $268.3 million that we processed in round one during 2020. Of the total PPP loans we have originated,

End of period deposit balances
Savings and money market
The increase in noninterest-bearing demand of $132.9 million was primarily due to a $61.1 million
increase in business demand deposit accounts, primarily due to the deposit of PPP loan proceeds. Additionally, balances related to the tax refund processing program increased $50.8 million, which is temporary, and is expected to return to
levels more consistent with December 31, 2020 over the next two quarters. Interest-bearing demand deposits increased due to a $47.6 million increase in public fund accounts and a $26.7 million increase in
fund accounts. The increase in savings and money market was primarily due to a $40.9 million increase in statement savings, a $26.7 million increase in personal money markets and a
$14.8 million increase in public fund money markets. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $40.1 million increase in brokered money market accounts.
FHLB advances totaled $75.0 million at June 30, 2021, down $50.0 million from December 31, 2020. The decrease was due to the prepayment of
a $50 million, 2.05% long-term advance.
Stock Repurchase Program
During the first six months of 2021, Civista repurchased 505,239 shares for $11.3 million at a weighted average price of $22.30 per share. We have
approximately $7.4 million remaining of the current $13.5 million repurchase authorization, which was approved in April 2021. In addition, Civista liquidated 5,065 shares held by employees, at $17.71 per share, to satisfy tax obligations
stemming from vesting of restricted shares.
Total shareholders equity increased $2.3 million from December 31, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Retained earnings increased $16.1 million
and was partially offset by an $11.4 million repurchase of treasury shares and a $3.1 million decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income.

$339 thousand for the six months of 2021 compared to net recoveries of $41 thousand for the same period of 2020. The allowance for loan losses to loans was 1.30% at June 30, 2021 and 1.22% at December 31, 2020. Removing the PPP
