Key highlights for the second quarter of 2012 include the following:

  • Net income increased $220,000 from the first quarter, or 22.2%.
  • Non-performing assets declined $1.7 million from March 31, 2012 and $13.1 million from June 30, 2011.
  • Noninterest expense decreased $689,000, or 7.4%, in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011.
  • In May, the Company received regulatory approvals to pay and paid $489,000 for one current and one previously deferred TARP dividend payment and its current interest payment due on trust preferred securities.

Rex L. Smith, III, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Bank, stated, "This is our fifth consecutive quarter of solid core earnings as we continue to reduce our nonperforming assets and control our expenses.  Net Income is up over 22% quarter over quarter.  We believe that these results show that the Company is on solid footing and we are poised to exceed our internal forecasts for net income and asset quality for the remainder of 2012." 

Mr. Smith added, "Our asset quality numbers continue to improve as we have kept a watchful eye on the existing portfolio through the continued weak economic cycle.  While new loan growth is not as strong as we would like, in the current environment it is better to remain conservative on credit quality than to push aggressive growth.  We are pleased that nonperforming assets declined by 4.3% quarter over quarter."

Mr. Smith concluded, "We continue to lower our costs of business while gaining momentum in the markets we serve.  Our team has worked diligently to change our deposit mix to lower cost demand deposits, to cross sell fee-based opportunities to our mortgage and investment sales groups and to expand our overall customer base.  Our overall performance is good and getting stronger with each quarter.  I am excited about what we have accomplished and what I believe we can do for our stockholders going forward."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net income available to common stockholders was $934,000, or $0.04 per common share on a diluted basis, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared with net income available to common stockholders of $247,000, or $0.01 per common share on a diluted basis, for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. The increase in net income was the result of an improvement of $727,000 in noninterest income and a decrease of $689,000 in noninterest expenses.  Additionally, net interest income improved by $119,000 in the three month period ended June 30, 2012 compared with the three month period ended June 30, 2011.

During the second quarter, the Company recorded a $500,000 provision for loan losses, primarily to bolster specific reserves on two impaired loans, as a precaution to meet potential future losses.  During the second quarter of 2011, the Company had no provision for loan losses.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, net income available to common stockholders was $1.6 million, compared with a net loss available to common stockholders of $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  The $2.8 million improvement for the six month comparison periods was the result of a reduction of $1.5 million in noninterest expense, a decrease of $1.1 million in interest expense, an increase of $1.1 million in noninterest income and a reduction of $748,000 in provision for loan losses.

The following table presents summary income statements for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 and the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

Interest Income

Interest income for the second quarter of 2012 was $14.1 million, an increase of $310,000, or 2.2%, from interest income of $13.8 million in the first quarter of 2012.  Interest and fee income on loans was $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared with $11.6 million in the first quarter of 2012.  Interest and fees on FDIC covered loans increased $452,000 on a linked quarter basis and was $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared with $3.9 million in the first quarter of 2012.  The increase in interest and fees on FDIC covered loans was driven by a $678,000 cash payment on a loan in the acquisition, development and construction (ADC) portfolio.  Because of uncertainty about the amount and timing of cash flows in the ADC pool, during the first quarter of 2011, the accounting for this pool was changed to the cost recovery method.  Under this method, amounts received are applied first to principal.  Currently, the loan pool has a carrying value of zero and payments are credited to income when received.

Year over year, interest income declined 2.6%, or $373,000, from $14.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 to $14.1 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The primary reason for the decline was a 50 basis point decrease in the yield on average earning assets, from 6.34% in the second quarter of 2011 to 5.84% in the second quarter of 2012.  The yield on non-covered loans declined 30 basis points during this time frame and was the primary driver to the decline in overall earning asset yields. 

Interest income was $27.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, a slight increase of $42,000 when compared with the six months ended June 30, 2011.  Despite a $25.9 million increase in average earning assets, interest income remained stable due to a decrease in the associated yield.  The earning asset yield declined 20 basis points, from 6.01% through the first six months of 2011 to 5.81% for the same period in 2012.

Interest Expense

Interest expense for the second quarter of 2012 was $2.6 million, a decrease of $125,000, or 4.6%, from interest expense of $2.7 million for the first quarter of 2012.  The slight decline in interest expense was the result of lower funding costs, notwithstanding the fact that average interest-bearing liabilities increased $5.0 million, from $907.8 million in the first quarter of 2012 to $912.8 million in the second quarter of 2012.  Management continued to aggressively re-price time deposits, as well as lower rates on transaction accounts, during the second quarter.  As a result, the cost of interest bearing liabilities declined from 1.20% in the first quarter of 2012 to 1.13% in the second quarter of 2012.

Year over year, interest expense declined $492,000, from $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2011 to $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2012. The 16.0% decrease resulted from a decrease in rates paid on interest bearing liabilities.  The cost of interest bearing liabilities declined from 1.37% for the second quarter of 2011 to 1.13% in the second quarter of 2012. 

Interest expense declined $1.1 million year over year, from $6.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 to $5.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012.  This decline of 17.1% was driven also by a decline in the cost of interest bearing liabilities, from 1.41% for the first six months of 2011 to 1.16% for the first six months of 2012.

The majority of the decline in the cost of funds noted in the three month and six month periods were the result of time deposit re-pricing.  The average rates on all time deposits declined 26 basis points from 1.65% in the second quarter of 2011 to 1.39% for the three months ended June 30, 2012.  Likewise, the average rate paid on time deposits for the first half of 2012 declined 28 basis points to equal 1.42%, compared with 1.70% for the first half of 2011.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $11.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared with $11.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  This represents an increase of $435,000, or 3.9%, and was the result, primarily, of an increase in interest and fees on FDIC covered loans.  FDIC covered loan interest increased $452,000, from $3.9 million in the first quarter of 2012 to $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The resulting yield on this portfolio for the second quarter was 18.8% on $93.0 million in average carrying value balances.  On a tax equivalent basis, net interest income was $11.6 million for the second quarter of 2012 compared with $11.2 million for the first quarter of 2012.  The tax equivalent net interest margin increased 13 basis points on a linked quarter basis to 4.78% for the second quarter of 2012.

Net interest income increased $119,000 or 1.0%, year over year, from $11.4 million in the second quarter of 2011 to $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The Company's net interest margin declined from 5.01% in the second quarter of 2011 to 4.78% for the same period in 2012.  A decline in the yield on earning assets, from 6.34% in the second quarter of 2011 to 5.84% in the second quarter of 2012, was the primary impetus for the decline in net interest margin.  Competitive pricing on new loans, coupled with growth in lower yielding government-guaranteed USDA loans, contributed to the 30 basis point decline in non-covered loan yield over this time frame. The impact of the decline in the yield on average earning assets was partially offset by a decrease in the cost of total interest bearing liabilities, from 1.37% in the second quarter of 2011 to 1.13% in the second quarter of 2012.

Net interest income was $22.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared with $21.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  The increase in net interest income was primarily the result of decreases in rates paid on interest bearing liabilities, which reduced interest expense 17.1%, from $6.4 million in the first six months of 2011 to $5.3 million for the first six months of 2012.  The tax equivalent net interest margin increased to 4.71% in the first six months of 2012, from 4.65% in the first six months of 2011.

The following table compares the Company's net interest margin, on a tax-equivalent basis, for the three months ended June 30, 2012, June 30, 2011, and March 31, 2012 and for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses on non-covered loans was $500,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 compared with no provision for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  The provision for loan losses on non-covered loans was $1.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $1.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. 

The Company's loan loss provision for the first six months of 2012 equaled $750,000 and differed from the $1.0 million non-covered provision.  The Company had provision for loan losses of $250,000 during the first quarter of 2012, which included a $500,000 provision for non-covered loans and a $250,000 credit to the provision related to FDIC covered loans.  Improvement in expected losses on the Company's FDIC covered portfolio resulted in the $250,000 provision benefit during the first quarter of the year.

The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming assets was 36.52% at June 30, 2012, compared with 36.01% at March 31, 2012 and 33.52% at June 30, 2011.  The ratio of allowance for loan losses to total non-covered loans was 2.46% at June 30, 2012, compared with 2.54% at March 31, 2012 and 3.35% at June 30, 2011. The decrease in the allowance for loan losses to total non-covered loans ratio from June 2011 to June 2012 was the result of aggressive charge-offs for non-performing loans and a lesser volume of loans migrating to a non-performing status.  This situation has resulted in a stabilization of allowance coverage ratios. 

Net charged-off loans were $909,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared with net charged-off loans of $1.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 and $4.7 million for the second quarter of 2011.  Since the beginning of 2011, the Company has charged-off $15.5 million in loans and realized $983,000 in recoveries.   

Charged-off loans were $2.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared with $10.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  Loan recoveries were $395,000 for the first six months of 2012, compared with $221,000 for the same period in 2011.

The following table reconciles the activity in the Company's non-covered allowance for loan losses, by quarter, for the past six quarters.

Noninterest Income

On a linked quarter basis, noninterest income was negative $704,000 for the second quarter of 2012, compared with negative $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2012.  The $353,000 improvement in noninterest income was primarily the result of a $406,000 net increase in securities gains over the quarters.  During the second quarter, the Company recognized $290,000 in securities gains, compared with losses of $116,000 on the sale of securities during the first quarter of 2012.  Service charges on deposit accounts improved $57,000, from $617,000 in the first quarter of 2012 to $674,000 in the second quarter of 2012.  During the second quarter, management initiated new fee structures across both loan and deposit platforms, which have resulted in higher revenue.

Other noninterest income increased $43,000, from $501,000 in the first quarter of 2012 to $544,000 in the second quarter of 2012.  Offsetting these improvements to noninterest income was higher FDIC indemnification asset amortization of $101,000, from $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2012 to $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The increase in the indemnification asset amortization in the second quarter was directly attributable to the $678,000 cash payment on the ADC pool loan with no carrying value. Also, loss on sale of other real estate owned (OREO) was $52,000 greater in the second quarter of 2012, as it increased from $177,000 in the first quarter to $229,000 in the second quarter.

Year over year, noninterest income improved from negative $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2011 to negative $704,000 in the second quarter of 2012.  This $727,000 increase was driven by a reduction in FDIC indemnification asset amortization of $674,000, from $2.7 million in the second quarter of 2011 to $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2012.  Securities gains increased $114,000 for the respective quarters, year over year.  Service charges on deposit accounts increased by $37,000 in the second quarter of 2012 versus the same period in 2011, and the Company realized $20,000 less in losses on OREO sales. 

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, noninterest income equaled negative $1.8 million compared with negative $2.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  This change was due primarily to a reduction in FDIC indemnification asset amortization of $1.5 million, from $5.4 million for the first six months of 2011 to $3.9 million for the same period in 2012.  The indemnification asset amortization will continue to decline over the life of the shared-loss agreements; correspondingly, interest and fees on FDIC covered loans also will decline as the carrying value of the FDIC covered portfolio is reduced. 

Also exhibiting improvement was loss on sale of OREO, which declined $455,000, from $861,000 for the first six months of 2011 to $406,000 for the first six months of 2012.  Management continually reviews OREO properties and has made a concerted effort to conservatively mark foreclosed properties at the time of transfer. This, coupled with stabilization in real estate values, has resulted in lower write-downs taken this year. Service charges on deposit accounts increased $78,000 and were $1.3 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2012.  Offsetting these increases in noninterest income was a $663,000 decline in gain on sale of securities and a $331,000 reduction in other noninterest income.

Noninterest Expense

On a linked quarter basis, noninterest expenses totaled $8.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared with $8.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, an increase of $235,000, or 2.8%.  Other operating expenses exhibited the largest increase, $319,000, when comparing the second quarter of 2012 to the first quarter of 2012.  Professional fees and occupancy expenses increased $63,000 and $54,000, respectively, on a linked quarter basis.  Decreases in noninterest expenses included $88,000 in FDIC assessment costs and $61,000 in salaries and employee benefits.   

Comparing the second quarter of 2012 to the same period in 2011, noninterest expenses declined $689,000, or 7.4%.  Noninterest expenses were $8.6 million in the second quarter of 2012, down from $9.3 million in the second quarter of 2011.  Other operating expenses exhibited the largest decline, $285,000, or 13.7%, from $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2011 to $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The decrease within other operating expenses reflected declines in advertising, bank franchise tax and directors expenses.  Also contributing to the decline in noninterest expenses in the second quarter of 2012 compared with the same period in 2011 was a $265,000 decline in FDIC assessment, a $50,000 decline in equipment expense and professional fees, a $48,000 decline in occupancy expenses and a $20,000 decline in legal fees.  Offsetting these declines in noninterest expenses, when comparing the second quarter of 2012 to the same period in 2011, were increases of $23,000 to data processing and $6,000 to salaries and employee benefits.   

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, noninterest expenses declined $1.5 million, or 8.0%, when compared with the same period in 2011.  Noninterest expenses were $17.1 million for the first two quarters of 2012, compared with $18.5 million for the same period in 2011.  FDIC assessment, which was $1.1 million for the first six months of 2012, compared with $1.6 million in the first six months of 2011, was the largest component within the decline in noninterest expenses.  Other operating expenses declined $492,000, from $3.8 million for the first two quarters of 2011 to $3.3 million for the first two quarters of 2012. Declines within other operating expenses included external audit, bank franchise tax, directors expense and advertising expenses.  

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $473,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared with income tax expense of $390,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and income tax expense of $127,000 in the second quarter of 2011. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, income tax expense totaled $863,000, compared with income tax benefit of $711,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

At June 30, 2012, the Company had total assets of $1.116 billion, an increase of $23.4 million, or 2.1%, from total assets of $1.093 billion at December 31, 2011. Total loans were $641.9 million at June 30, 2012, decreasing $411,000, or 0.1%, from $642.3 million at December 31, 2011.   The carrying value of FDIC covered loans declined $4.7 million, or 4.8%, from December 31, 2011 and were $92.9 million at June 30, 2012. Non-covered loans equaled $549.0 million at June 30, 2012, increasing $4.3 million, or 0.8%, since December 31, 2011.  

During the third quarter of 2011, the Bank began purchasing government-guaranteed loans under programs administered by the USDA.  The Bank has purchased only the government-guaranteed portion of any of the loans that have been originated by other financial institutions.   During the first six months of 2012, $4.7 million in USDA loan balances were added, bringing the total to $41.2 million at June 30, 2012.  USDA balances are reflected in non-covered loans and are classified according to collateral and purpose.

On a linked quarter basis, when considering non-covered loan activity, total real estate loans increased $5.1 million and were $469.9 million at June 30, 2012.  Commercial loans decreased $4.3 million, or 5.8%, during the second quarter of 2012, and were $69.7 million at June 30, 2012.  Consumer installment loans decreased during the second quarter of 2012 and were $8.0 million, a decrease of $622,000, or 7.2%.

The following table shows the composition of the Company's non-covered loan portfolio for the three most recent quarters.

As deposit balances increased and non-earning asset balances declined during the second quarter of 2012, the Company's securities portfolio increased $18.2 million, or 6.2%.  Additionally, the Company performed a fairly substantive change in the mix of the securities portfolio during the second quarter of 2012.  The Company lessened its amortized cost in available-for-sale mortgage backed securities (MBS) by $85.0 million and reinvested $75.5 million in SBA floating rate securities balances.  This was done to mitigate substantive market losses within a large MBS portfolio in a rising interest rate environment.  Furthermore, management increased its investment in available-for-sale state, county and municipal securities by $32.0 million during the second quarter.  The most recent shift in securities mix reflected strategic balance sheet management to protect the Company from rising interest rates while not fully compromising yield. 

The following table shows the composition of the Company's securities portfolio, excluding equity securities, for the three most recent quarters.
