The net interest margin in 2021 equated to 3.70% compared with 3.76% for 2020. The Bank has maintained consistent net interest margin over the past two years, in part due to the Bank’s participation in the PPP Program which allowed for short-term forgivable loans with an interest rate of 1.00%. While the origination of PPP loans has applied downward pressure to net interest margin, the PPP loans originated in the first round during 2020 and the second round in 2021 have had a significant impact on the Bank’s financial statements. During 2021, the Bank recognized $1.7 million in deferred fees in conjunction with PPP loans, of which $1.0 million was realized from forgiven PPP loans originated during the first two rounds of the program.
