"Second quarter results indicate continued focus on our goal of improving the Bank's interest margin, with an increase in the loan portfolio for the quarter of $22.3 million and an increase in core deposits of $3.5 million for the same period," said Suzanne S. DeFerie, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While we are not pleased with the reported loss for the quarter, it is based primarily on a write-down of $1.2 million in foreclosed real estate to facilitate a potential sale of a substantial portion of a foreclosed asset for which the Bank has received an executed letter of intent from a qualified buyer and which, if such sale is completed, will further reduce nonperforming assets to a more improved level."

Second Quarter Highlights

  • A net loss of $206,000, or $0.04 per share, was posted for the second quarter of 2013, but net income of $534,000, or $0.11 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The quarterly loss primarily resulted from an additional $1.2 million write-down of the Bank's largest foreclosed property that was based primarily on the receipt of a an executed letter of intent to purchase all of the remaining residential units of the mixed use project.
  • Loans increased $22.3 million for the quarter to $417.8 million as new loan originations exceeded loan repayments, prepayments and foreclosures.
  • Nonperforming loans remained low at $1.5 million, or 0.37% of total loans, at June 30, 2013. The allowance for loan losses was 552.5% of nonperforming loans at June 30, 2013. Delinquent loans also remained low at $2.5 million, or 0.60% of total loans at June 30, 2013.
  • Nonperforming assets, including foreclosed properties, decreased $1.5 million during the second quarter to $18.2 million, or 2.42% of total assets, at June 30, 2013 and have improved in each of the previous four quarters.
  • Core deposits, or deposits excluding time deposits, increased $3.5 million to $401.8 million at June 30, 2013 from $398.3 million at March 31, 2013 and have increased in each of the previous four quarters.
  • Book value per share was $19.65 at June 30, 2013.
  • The Company approved an additional 5% stock repurchase plan, or approximately 265,266 shares, during the second quarter of 2013 of which 21,000 shares of common stock were repurchased at an average cost of $16.34 per share during the quarter.

Balance Sheet Review

Assets. Total assets increased $3.2 million, or 0.4%, to $752.6 million at June 30, 2013 from $749.4 million at December 31, 2012. Cash and cash equivalents decreased $9.1 million, or 19.2%, to $38.3 million at June 30, 2013 from $47.4 million at December 31, 2012. Investment securities increased $5.1 million, or 2.1%, to $248.5 million at June 30, 2013 from $243.4 million at December 31, 2012, primarily due to the reinvestment of proceeds from the sale of investment securities in the fourth quarter of 2012 that settled in the first quarter of 2013. Loans receivable, net of deferred fees, increased $30.1 million, or 7.8%, to $417.8 million at June 30, 2013 from $387.7 million at December 31, 2012 as new loan originations exceeded loan repayments, prepayments and foreclosures.

Liabilities. Total deposits increased $9.9 million, or 1.7%, to $588.2 million at June 30, 2013 from $578.3 million at December 31, 2012. During the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company continued its focus on core deposit growth, from which it excludes certificates of deposit. Core deposits increased $12.7 million, or 3.3%, to $401.8 million at June 30, 2013 from $389.1 million at December 31, 2012. Non-interest-bearing deposits increased $6.3 million, or 9.6%, to $71.6 million at June 30, 2013 from $65.3 million at December 31, 2012. Over the same period, certificates of deposit decreased $2.9 million, or 1.5%, to $186.3 million at June 30, 2013 from $189.2 million at December 31, 2012. Accounts payable and other liabilities increased $1.1 million, or 12.1%, to $10.2 million at June 30, 2013 from $9.1 million at December 31, 2012.

Asset Quality

Provision for Loan Losses. The provision for loan losses was $16,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in the provision was due to the combination of improvement in the economy, loan delinquencies and the credit quality of the loan portfolio, in addition to fewer charge-offs. The allowance for loan losses totaled $8.5 million, or 2.04% of total loans, at June 30, 2013 compared to $8.5 million, or 2.20% of total loans, at December 31, 2012. The Company charged off $87,000 in loans during the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $382,000 during the three months ended June 30, 2012. 

The provision for loan losses was $128,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $1.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. As was the case for the second quarter, the decrease in the provision was due to improvement in the economy, loan delinquencies and the credit quality of the loan portfolio, in addition to fewer charge-offs, which were $192,000 for the first six months of 2013 compared to $1.1 million for the first six months of 2012.

Nonperforming assets. Nonperforming assets totaled $18.2 million, or 2.42% of total assets, at June 30, 2013, compared to $20.6 million, or 2.74% of total assets, at December 31, 2012. Nonperforming assets included $1.5 million in nonperforming loans and $16.7 million in foreclosed real estate at June 30, 2013, compared to $1.2 million and $19.4 million, respectively, at December 31, 2012. 

Nonperforming loans increased $393,000, or 34.1%, to $1.5 million at June 30, 2013 from $1.2 million at December 31, 2012. At June 30, 2013, nonperforming loans included seven residential mortgage loans that totaled $824,000, one commercial mortgage loan in the amount of $387,000, two commercial and industrial loans that totaled $177,000, one revolving home equity loan in the amount of $94,000, and one construction and land development loan in the amount of $50,000. As of June 30, 2013, the nonperforming loans had specific reserves totaling $150,000.

Foreclosed real estate at June 30, 2013 included 14 properties with a total carrying value of $16.7 million compared to 18 properties with a total carrying value of $19.4 million at December 31, 2012. During the six months ended June 30, 2013, there were two new properties in the amount of $291,000 added to foreclosed real estate, while six properties totaling $1.7 million were sold. The Bank also added $1.4 million in loss provisions.

The Bank's largest foreclosed property resulted from a loan relationship that had an original purpose of constructing a mixed-use retail, commercial office, and residential condominium project located in western North Carolina. As a result of this foreclosure, the Bank acquired (i) 44 of the 48 condominium units in the building including all eight of the retail units, three of which are leased, (ii) eight of the 11 commercial office condominiums, three of which were sold by the developer prior to the foreclosure, and (iii) 28 of the 29 residential units, one of which was sold by the developer prior to the foreclosure. Following an additional write-down of approximately $630,000 on the loans secured by this collateral in the fourth quarter of 2012, the Bank recorded this foreclosed property in the amount of $9.8 million. During the second quarter of 2013, the Bank recorded an additional write-down of $1.2 million primarily based on its receipt of a letter of intent from a qualified prospective buyer to purchase all of the remaining residential units, which resulted in an adjusted recorded amount of $8.6 million at June 30, 2013.

Income Statement Analysis

Net Interest Income. Net interest income decreased by $75,000, or 1.6%, to $4.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 from $4.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Total interest and dividend income decreased by $719,000, or 11.2%, to $5.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $6.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, primarily as a result of a 14 basis point decrease in yields on interest-earning assets, a $11.4 million decrease in average loan balances and a $35.7 million decrease in the average balances of all other interest-earning assets, including investments. The decline in total interest and dividend income was partially offset by a $644,000, or 36.9%, decrease in interest expense to $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 from $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in interest expense resulted from a 37 basis point reduction in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities and a decline of $40.2 million in the average balances of interest-bearing liabilities, comparing the three-month periods.

Net interest income decreased by $66,000, or 0.7%, to $9.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to $9.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Total interest and dividend income decreased by $1.5 million, or 11.7%, to $11.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 from $12.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in interest and dividend income was primarily a result of a 14 basis point decrease in yields on interest-earning assets and a $49.8 million decrease in the average balances of interest-earning assets. The decline in total interest and dividend income was essentially offset by a $1.5 million, or 39.5%, decrease in interest expense to $2.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 from $3.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in interest expense resulted from a 42 basis point reduction in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities and a decline of $44.2 million in the average balances of interest-bearing liabilities.

Noninterest Income. Noninterest income increased $523,000, or 26.2%, to $2.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 from $2.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Factors that contributed to the increase in noninterest income during the 2013 period were increases of $368,000 in gains from the sale of investment securities, $110,000 in mortgage banking income, $65,000 from debit card services and $59,000 in other income from a Small Business Investment Company ("SBIC") investment, which were partially offset by the decrease of $81,000 in fees from deposits and other services. The increase in investment security gains resulted primarily from the Bank's efforts to better position its portfolio for rising rates, while the increase in mortgage banking income was attributable to higher volumes of mortgage loans sold. The decrease in deposit and other service charge income was primarily the result of lower deposit overdraft fees.

Noninterest income increased $453,000 to $4.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 from $4.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Factors that contributed to the increase in noninterest income during the 2013 period were increases of $371,000 in mortgage banking income, $303,000 in other noninterest income and $117,000 in debit card service income related to increased transaction volumes, partially offset by decreases of $197,000 in service charge income and $141,000 in gains from sales of investment securities. The increase in mortgage banking income was attributable to higher volumes of mortgage loans sold. The increase in other noninterest income primarily related to an increase of $174,000 in other income from a SBIC investment. The decrease in deposit and other service charge income was primarily the result of lower deposit overdraft fees.

Noninterest Expense. Noninterest expenses increased $2.0 million, or 34.9%, to $7.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 from $5.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The increase was attributable to increases of $1.1 million in foreclosed property expenses, $618,000 in salaries and employee benefits, $114,000 in other noninterest expenses, and $73,000 in data processing expenses. The increase in foreclosed property expenses related primarily to the increase in the loss provision compared to the prior year. The increase in salaries and benefits was primarily due to increases of $318,000 in compensation expenses, $277,000 in expenses related to the Bank's equity incentive plan, and $23,000 in payroll taxes and other benefit plan expenses. The increase in other noninterest expenses was primarily attributable to increased loan related expenses due to higher loan originations during 2013.

Noninterest expense increased $1.7 million, or 15.3%, to $12.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 from $11.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The higher 2013 noninterest expenses primarily resulted from increases of $1.2 million in foreclosed property expenses, $437,000 in salaries and benefits and $32,000 in other noninterest expenses. The increase in foreclosed property expenses related primarily to the increase in the loss provision compared to the prior year. The increase in salaries and benefits was primarily due to increases of $441,000 in expenses related to the Bank's new equity incentive plan and a $440,000 increase in compensation expenses, which were partially offset by a $481,000 one-time credit to pension expense resulting from the curtailment of benefits for future service. The increase in other noninterest expenses was primarily attributable to increased loan related expenses due to higher loan originations during 2013.

The Bank is a North Carolina chartered stock savings bank with a community focus offering traditional financial services through thirteen full-service banking centers located in Buncombe, Madison, McDowell, Henderson, and Transylvania counties in Western North Carolina.
