Baylake Corp. Reports Financial Results for the Three Months and Six Months Ended June 30, 2011.

STURGEON BAY, Wis., July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Baylake Corp. (OTC BB: BYLK) today announced results for the second quarter of 2011.

  • Net income of $0.8 million or $0.10 per share for second quarter 2011.
  • Nonperforming assets declined $5.7 million or 14% from $39.7 million at June 30, 2010 to $34.0 million at June 30, 2011.
  • Shareholders' equity increased $3.2 million to $81.4 million at June 30, 2011 compared to $78.2 million at June 30, 2010.
  • Total risk-based capital ratio rose to 13.43% at June 30, 2011, up from 13.29% at June 30, 2010.

"We are pleased to report earnings improvement for the second quarter ending June 30, 2011 in comparison to the first quarter of fiscal 2011," said Robert J. Cera, Baylake Corp. President and Chief Executive Officer. "We expect that credit costs related to non-performing assets will decline during the second half of fiscal 2011.  As a result, we anticipate an overall decline in non-interest expense that could drive earnings improvement during upcoming quarters.  We should begin to see earnings momentum accelerate as we continue down the path of overall asset quality improvement," said Cera.

Baylake reported net income for the second quarter of 2011 of $0.8 million, or $0.10 per fully-diluted common share, compared to net income of $1.3 million or $0.17 per fully-diluted common share for the second quarter of 2010. This represents a decrease in net income of $0.5 million, or $0.07 per fully-diluted common share.  

Net interest margin declined 6 basis points, from 3.68% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 to 3.62% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  Interest expense as a percent of average interest bearing liabilities decreased from 1.54% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 to 1.18% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  Interest income as a percent of average interest earning assets decreased from 5.12% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 to 4.69% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  Operating results during the quarter were negatively impacted by a $0.7 million increase in the provision for loan losses from $1.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 to $2.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  

Non-interest expense increased $1.4 million for the first six months of fiscal 2011 versus the comparable period in 2010, largely attributable to a $0.8 million increase in expenses related to the operation and disposition of other real estate owned (OREO).  Losses related to valuation adjustments of OREO should begin to subside, as updated evaluations of a significant percentage of our OREO were obtained prior to June 30, 2011 and appropriate adjustments are reflected in second quarter 2011 results of operations.  

Non-performing loans decreased from $23.7 million at June 30, 2010 to $22.0 million at June 30, 2011, but increased from $16.5 million at December 31, 2010.  At June 30, 2011, the allowance for loan losses as a percent of total loans was 2.04% as compared to 1.79% at June 30, 2010.  The allowance for loan losses as a percent of non-performing loans at June 30, 2011 increased to 57.42%, compared to 48.31% at June 30, 2010.  Net charge-offs against the reserve for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 were 0.89% of average total loans on an annualized basis, compared to net recoveries of previously charged-off loans representing 0.04% of average total loans on an annualized basis for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

Baylake's total assets and shareholders' equity were $1.0 billion and $81.4 million, respectively, at June 30, 2011, compared to $1.0 billion and $78.2 million at June 30, 2010.  Baylake's total risk-based capital ratio increased to 13.43% at June 30, 2011, up from 13.29% at June 30, 2010.  At June 30, 2011, both Baylake Corp. and Baylake Bank were considered "well capitalized" under applicable bank and bank holding company regulatory guidelines.

"We are optimistic that, as a result of reduced costs related to collection and disposition of non-performing assets, we will continue to show earnings improvements in future quarters," said Cera.  "The efforts of our commercial banking teams in both our Lakeshore and Green Bay markets are beginning to gain traction which bodes well for our plans to grow loans in those markets as the economy continues to show signs of stabilization and improvement, especially in the manufacturing sector."

Total deposits increased $2.2 million, or 0.3%, from $822.8 million at June 30, 2010 to $825.0 million at June 30, 2011. Total loans decreased by $20.0 million from $641.1 million at June 30, 2010 to $621.1 million at June 30, 2011.  The decrease in loans is the result of the bank's continued desire to reduce its credit risk profile in certain segments of its loan portfolio.

Baylake believes that it has adequate resources available to meet its short-term liquidity needs.  As of June 30, 2011, Baylake Bank had $30.0 million in established lines of credit with nonaffiliated banks, none of which had been drawn upon as of that date.  Additionally, Baylake Bank is approved to access, subject to pledging appropriate collateral, the Federal Reserve Discount Window for short term borrowing as necessary.

Baylake Corp., headquartered in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, is the bank holding company for Baylake Bank.  Through Baylake Bank, Baylake Corp. provides a variety of banking and financial services from 27 financial centers located throughout Northeast and Central Wisconsin, in Brown, Door, Green Lake, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Outagamie, Waupaca, and Waushara Counties.
