Heritage Bankshares, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2010 Earnings; and the 'Perfect Game' for Asset Quality; Declares Dividend

NORFOLK, Va., July 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Heritage Bankshares, Inc. ("Heritage"; the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: HBKS), the parent of Heritage Bank (the "Bank"), today announced unaudited financial results for the second quarter and first six months of 2010.

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 was $451,000, compared to net income of $231,000 for the second quarter of 2009, an increase of $220,000, or 95.2%.  Net income for the first six months ended June 30, 2010 was $813,000, compared to net income of $383,000 for the same period in 2009, an increase of $430,000, or 112.3%.

After the effect of dividends on TARP preferred stock of $146,000, net income available to common stockholders was $305,000, or $0.13 per diluted share for the quarter ending June 30, 2010.  In the quarter ending June 30, 2009, the Company had no preferred stock outstanding and, accordingly, there were no preferred stock dividends; thus, net income available to common stockholders equaled our net income of $231,000, or $0.10 per diluted share.  Comparing the second quarter of 2010 with the second quarter of 2009, net income available to common stockholders increased by $74,000, or 32.0%, and earnings per share increased by $0.03 per diluted share, or 30.0%.

For the first six months ending June 30, 2010, after the effect of dividends on TARP preferred stock of $293,000, net income available to common stockholders was $520,000, or $0.23 per diluted share.  For the six months ending June 30, 2009, the Company had no preferred stock outstanding and no preferred stock dividends; thus, net income available to common stockholders equaled our net income of $383,000, or $0.17 per diluted share.  Comparing the first six months of 2010 with the first six months of 2009, net income available to common stockholders increased by $137,000, or 35.8%, and earnings per share increased by $0.06 per diluted share, or 35.3%.

Michael S. Ives, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank, commented:

"The second quarter of 2010 was another solid quarter for the Company with two noteworthy achievements.

"First, the Company experienced a very rare event relating to asset quality for banks that is even more unusual during a recession.  On June 30, 2010, the Company had no real estate owned, no nonaccrual loans, and no loans past due 30 days or more.  In other words, on that particular date, the Company had the 'Perfect Game' for bank asset quality.

"Also, in the last two days of June, we added approximately $20 million of loans to our portfolio with a weighted average rate of 6.97%.  We expect a significant increase in our net interest income in the third quarter of 2010 and thereafter from these additional loans.

"Overall, we are very pleased with our excellent asset quality, our quarterly earnings improvements this year, and our expectations for significant increases in our net interest income in subsequent quarters."

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2010 and 2009

Overview.   The Company's pretax income was $701,000 for the second quarter of 2010, compared to a pretax income of $349,000 for the second quarter of 2009, an increase of $352,000.  Compared to the second quarter of 2009, net interest income increased by $94,000, provision for loan losses increased by $138,000, noninterest income increased by $218,000, and noninterest expense decreased by $178,000.

Net Interest Income.  The Company's net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $94,000 to $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2010 compared to $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2009.  This increase in net interest income was primarily attributable to a decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities of $19.4 million, and an increase in average interest-earning assets of $7.6 million, between the second quarter of 2009 and the second quarter of 2010; these quarter over quarter changes resulted in a net interest spread increase of 7 basis points, from 3.31% for the three months ended June 30, 2009 to 3.38% for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

Additionally, net interest margin increased by 4 basis points, from 3.74% in the second quarter of 2009 to 3.78% in the second quarter of 2010.  This increase was driven primarily by a $16.6 million decrease in average interest-bearing deposits, coupled with a $17.2 million increase in average noninterest-bearing deposits.

Provision for Loan Losses.  The Company's provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2010 was $159,000.  This increase was attributable to an increase of $17.7 million in total loans in the second quarter of 2010.  This amount compared to a provision of $21,000 in the second quarter of 2009.  In the second quarter of 2010 there were net recoveries of $23,000, compared to net charge-offs of $2,000 in the second quarter of 2009.  There were no nonperforming assets at June 30, 2010 compared to $490,000 at June 30, 2009.

Noninterest Income.  Total noninterest income increased by $218,000, from $217,000 in the second quarter of 2009 to $435,000 in the second quarter of 2010, primarily as a result of a $232,000 gain on the sale of investment securities.

Noninterest Expense.  Total noninterest expense decreased by $178,000, from $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2009 to $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2010.  This decrease in noninterest expense was driven primarily by a $139,000 decrease in FDIC assessments from the second quarter 2009 (the second quarter of 2009 included the special assessment of $121,000 in 2009 that did not recur in 2010).

Income Taxes.  The Company's income tax expense for the second quarter of 2010 was $250,000, reflecting an effective tax rate of 35.6%, compared to income tax expense of $118,000 for the second quarter of 2009, reflecting an effective tax rate of 33.8%.  The lower effective tax rate in the second quarter of 2009 was attributable to nontaxable life insurance income.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2010 and 2009

Overview.   The Company's pretax income was $1,265,000 for the six months ending June 30, 2010, compared to a pretax income of $547,000 for the six months ending June 30, 2009, an increase of $718,000.  Compared to the first six months of 2009, net interest income increased by $300,000, provision for loan losses increased by $83,000, noninterest income increased by $511,000, and noninterest expense remained constant.

Net Interest Income.  The Company's net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $300,000 to $4.7 million in the first six months of 2010, compared to $4.4 million in the first six months of 2009.  This increase in net interest income was primarily attributable to a decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities of $17.4 million, and an increase in average interest-earning assets of $7.9 million between the first six months of 2009 and the first six months of 2010; these year-to-date over year-to-date changes resulted in a net interest spread increase of 17 basis points, from 3.25% for the six months ended June 30, 2009 to 3.42% for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Additionally, net interest margin increased by 12 basis points, from 3.69% for the first six months of 2009 to 3.81% for the first six months of 2010.  This increase was driven primarily by a $14.5 million decrease in average interest-bearing deposits, coupled with a $15.4 million increase in average noninterest-bearing deposits.

Provision for Loan Losses.  The Company's provision for loan losses in the first six months of 2010 was $159,000.  This amount compared to a provision of $76,000 in the first six months of 2009.  The increase is attributable to a $17.7 million net increase in total loans in the second quarter of 2010.

Noninterest Income.  Total noninterest income increased by $511,000, from $378,000 in the first six months of 2009 to $889,000 in the first six months of 2010, primarily as a result of $486,000 of gains on the sale of investment securities.

Noninterest Expense.  Total noninterest expense remained constant at $4.2 million for the first six months of 2010 and 2009.  Increases in compensation expense of $229,000 were offset by decreases in FDIC assessment, occupancy, and professional fees of $142,000, $45,000, and $41,000, respectively. The decrease in FDIC assessment relates primarily to a special assessment in June 2009 of $121,000 that did not occur in 2010.

Income Taxes.  The Company's income tax expense for the first six months of 2010 was $452,000, reflecting an effective tax rate of 35.8%, compared to income tax expense of $164,000 for the first six months of 2009, reflecting an effective tax rate of 30.0%.  The lower effective tax rate in the first six months of 2009 was attributable to a $48,000 tax benefit resulting from an increase in non-qualified stock options related to certain stock options that were repriced in the first quarter of 2009 and to nontaxable life insurance income.

Financial Condition of the Company

Total Assets.  The Company's total assets increased by $31.7 million, or 11.8%, from $267.2 million at June 30, 2009 to $298.8 million at June 30, 2010.  The increase in assets resulted primarily from a $12.3 million, or 22.3%, increase in investment securities available for sale, and an $18.7 million, or 10.5%, increase in loans.

Liquid Assets.  Liquid assets, which include cash and cash equivalents and investment securities, increased by $12.1 million from $74.1 million at June 30, 2009 to $86.2 million at June 30, 2010.  Investment securities available for sale were $67.8 million at June 30, 2010, compared to $55.5 million at June 30, 2009, an increase of $12.3 million, or 22.3%.  

Loans.  Loans held for investment, net, were $196.0 million at June 30, 2010, which represents an increase of $18.7 million, or 10.5%, from the loan balance of $177.4 million at June 30, 2009.  At the end of June 2010, the Company added to its portfolio $20.2 million in seasoned loans that carry a weighted average rate of 6.97%.

Asset Quality.  There were no nonperforming assets at June 30, 2010, compared to $490,000, or 0.18% of assets, at June 30, 2009.  

Deposits.  At June 30, 2010, increases in noninterest-bearing deposits of $10.5 million more than offset decreases in interest-bearing deposits of $6.8 million for a net increase in total deposits of $3.7 million, or 1.6%, from $230.7 million at June 30, 2009 to $234.4 million at June 30, 2010.  Core deposits, which are comprised of noninterest-bearing, money market, NOW and savings deposits, increased by $7.2 million, or 4.1%, from $177.0 million at June 30, 2009 to $184.2 million at June 30, 2010.  Certificates of deposit decreased by $3.5 million between the comparable six-month periods.  

Average total deposits increased by $0.9 million, or 0.4%, from $219.5 million during the six months ended June 30, 2009 to $220.4 million during the six months ended June 30, 2010.  Average core deposits increased by $5.1 million between the comparable six-month periods, partially offset by a $4.2 million decrease in certificates of deposit.  In addition, the mix of average noninterest-bearing deposits to average total deposits increased from 27.5% to 34.4% between the first six months of 2009 and 2010, thereby contributing to the improvement in our net interest margin.

Borrowed Funds.  Borrowed funds increased by $16.9 million, from $8.6 million at June 30, 2009 to $25.5 million at June 30, 2010, primarily to fund loans added at the end of the second quarter.

Capital.  Stockholders' equity increased by $10.9 million, or 41.7%, from $26.2 million at June 30, 2009 to $37.1 million at June 30, 2010.  Stockholders' equity increased primarily as a result of an infusion of $10.1 million in TARP funding and a $550,000 increase in retained earnings.
