JD Bancshares, Inc. Announces Securities Portfolio Repositioning
Jennings, La., November 22, 2023 (ACCESSWIRE) – JD Bancshares, Inc. (the “Company”), (OTCQX: JDVB), the parent holding company of JD Bank (the “Bank”), announced that the Bank completed a transaction to reposition a portion of its investment securities portfolio.
In November 2023 the Bank initiated a strategic securities transaction by selling approximately $54.7 million of available-for-sale securities consisting entirely of lower-yielding US Treasury securities with an average yield of 1.32% for an estimated pre-tax loss of $6.6 million. The Company expects to deploy the net proceeds into a mix of cash and higher-yielding earning assets with an expected average yield of approximately 6.67%. We estimate that the loss should be earned back in 2.8 years. The strength of our capital position allowed the Company to proactively reposition the securities portfolio, which we anticipate will provide significant future earnings benefit and safeguard against potential interest rate risk as we enter 2024.
