Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. Updates Previously Reported 2012 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Financial Results To Reflect Larger Allowance For Loan Losses

DUNMORE, Pa., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fidelity D & D Bancorp, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: FDBC), parent company of The Fidelity Deposit and Discount Bank, reported today that information became available in 2013 that confirmed the collateral value of an impaired commercial real estate loan was overestimated.  Based on this information, the Company revised the collateral valuation estimate used in its impairment analysis as of December 31, 2012.  These developments occurred after year-end but before the financial statements are available for issuance.  Therefore, the Company's previously reported 2012 fourth quarter and full year financial results have been updated, following GAAP, to reflect additional loan loss reserve requirements from the reduction in the estimated collateral value.

"We are pleased with the 2012 financial results.  In spite of the challenging economic environment, the Company reported a significant increase in revenue when compared to the previous year," stated Daniel J. Santaniello, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "This update to our 2012 financial results is reflective of the Board of Director's and Management's commitment to maintain a disciplined and transparent business practices."

The Company has updated its previously reported 2012 fourth quarter and full year financial results to provide an additional $0.6 million provision for loan losses to increase the allowance for loan losses to the requisite level. Therefore, updated 2012 fourth quarter and full year earnings were reduced to $0.9 million and $4.9 million, respectively, or $0.40 per share and $2.14 per share, respectively. Whereas previously reported 2012 fourth quarter and full-year earnings were $1.3 million and $5.3 million, respectively, or $.58 per share and $2.32 per share, respectively.

The updated provision for loan losses was $1.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the $450 thousand required for the fourth quarter of 2011.  The updated provision for loan losses was $3.3 million for the 2012 year, compared to $1.8 million required in 2011.  The adjusted allowance for loan losses is 2.02% of total loans at December 31, 2012, up now from 1.97% at December 31, 2011.

Reflecting this adjustment, the Company's assets totaled $601.5 million at December 31, 2012, down from $606.7 million at December 31, 2011.  Shareholders' equity grew $5.3 million, or 10%.  The Bank's regulatory capital ratios for the period ending December 31, 2012 were Total Risk Based Capital Ratio of 13.5%, Tier I Capital Ratio of 12.2% and Leverage Ratio of 9.6%, all of which exceed the current "well capitalized" regulatory requirements.  The impact of this change did not have a significant effect on the Bank's capital ratios.

The updated financial results will be reflected in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, and are included in the following selected financial highlights.
