Dianne Huffman CHAIR, AUDIT COMMITTEE
2014
ANNUAL
REPORT
Continuing along the path of sustainable organic growth, the 2014 audited
performance results for our credit union again identifies the core strength
demonstrated by member support, staff commitment, and strategic and effective
management.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff, I am pleased to report
Asset Growth up 12.8%, Deposit Growth up 76% and Loan Growth up 60%. While
loan applications closed increased 154% over 2013, Bad Debt was reduced by eight
times the previous five year average with double the recovered dollars resulting
in an improvement of $73,000 in income over the past five year average loan loss
numbers. Financial Margin (98%) and Other Income (120%) satisfied management’s
goals with Net Income coming in at a respectable 94% of target.
MESSAGE
TO THE
MEMBERS
Unfortunately, a requirement to incorporate a $150,000 unrealized investment loss
in our CUCO Co op investment (ABCP LP) into our financials reduced our Net Income
to 31% of budget and adversely affected Retained Earnings. This inherited liability
outside the control of Ganaraska`s management is a consequence, but will not be
allowed to compromise our strength or alter our plan for growth moving forward.
Along with management’s MPP initiative producing 84 new memberships in 2014,
the launch of our new full service Peterborough branch has been successful and in
one year added 160 new members and approximately 150% of targeted deposit and
loan growth realized with little marketing expense.
Although slightly increased, Operating Expenses as a percentage of average assets
are the lowest in seven years. Liquidity levels remain stable; remuneration and
health benefits for employees have been improved; 4% dividends were declared
for Class B shareholders; and the Community Investment Program has been further
expanded in Peterborough.
Looking forward to 2015 in Year 4 of our 5 Year Strategic Plan as we continue to build
upon seventy years of serving our members, the Board of Directors is confident and
eager to embrace the exciting opportunities that are before us.
With the building of Retained Earnings being the task ahead, ground work is well
underway for a $3.5 M Investment Share Offering to strengthen Capital over 7%
supporting future growth; technology improvements to manage and mitigate IT
risk; a permanent home for Cobourg operations; opening of a full service branch in
Whitby area; and a projected 20% growth rate for the year.
The future is bright for our credit union. Management’s consistent achievement of
remunerative and prolific board approved goals yielding results that enable growth,
will continue to successfully position Ganaraska Financial Credit Union to provide
increased value for our members, employees and our communities.
I sincerely thank all Members for their perpetual support and all Staff, Management,
and Board Directors for their uninterrupted commitment over the past year.
Respectfully,
Mark Hill

Directors carried out its responsibilities for the financial statements through its
regular review of financial results and operations and through its Audit Committee.
The Audit Committee is appointed by the Board. The Committee meets periodically,
as per regulations, with Management, the external auditors and reviews quarterly
third party internal audit reports. Internal controls, the financial reporting process,
auditing matters and overall financial reporting issues are reviewed and discussed
to satisfy itself that each party is properly discharging their responsibilities.
The financial statements have been audited by BDO Canada LLP, our member
appointed external auditors and their report is shown as part of the summarized
financial statements.
