Heritage Bankshares, Inc. Announces Third Quarter and First Nine Months Net Income; Declares Dividends

NORFOLK, Va., Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heritage Bankshares, Inc. ("Heritage"; the "Company") (OTCBB: HBKS), the parent of Heritage Bank (the "Bank"), today announced unaudited financial results for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2011.

The Company's net income for the third quarter of 2011 was $548,000, compared to net income of $648,000 for the third quarter of 2010, a decrease of $100,000, or 15.4%.  Net income for the first nine months of 2011 was $1,699,000, an increase of $239,000, or 16.4%, over net income of $1,460,000 in the first nine months of 2010.  

During the third quarter of 2011, the Company sold to the U. S. Treasury $7.8 million of non-cumulative preferred stock issued under the Small Business Lending Fund ("SBLF") program and used the proceeds to redeem completely its outstanding TARP preferred stock of $7.8 million.  This redemption accelerated the accretion of the remaining net discount on the TARP preferred stock, thereby reducing income available to common shareholders by $153,000.  After the impact of dividends on our outstanding preferred stock and accelerated accretion of the discount resulting from the redemption of the remainder of our TARP preferred stock, earnings per share for the third quarter 2011 were $0.13, compared to $0.22 for the third quarter 2010.  Earnings per share for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011 were $0.49, compared to $0.44 for the same period ended September 30, 2010, an increase of 11.4%.

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

"While in absolute terms, there was a decrease in our net income comparing this quarter with the third quarter of 2010, a closer analysis shows the continuing improvement in income from our daily operations.  Net income for the third quarter of 2010 included a pretax gain of $278,000 on the sale of securities.  There were no such gains this quarter.  Excluding this gain from the comparison, our pretax income of $847,000 this quarter was an increase of $131,000, or 18.3%, over our pretax income of $716,000 for the third quarter of 2010.

"In addition, our net income available to common shareholders and earnings per share for the third quarter of 2011 included the negative impact from the final discount accretion for the Company's TARP preferred stock which has now been redeemed in its entirety as a result of our participating in the SBLF program.  We expect that in future quarters, our SBLF preferred stock dividend rates will be substantially less than the five-percent annual rate that we had paid previously under TARP.  This in turn should increase earnings per share which are calculated after the deduction of preferred stock dividends from net income.

"In September, we opened our newest banking center in the Greenbrier area of Chesapeake.  It has been part of our Strategic Plan to have a banking center in this busy commercial corridor and we believe a branch presence in Greenbrier makes us an even more attractive banking option for the multitude of small businesses located nearby."

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended September, 2011 and 2010

Overview.   The Company's pretax income was $847,000 for the third quarter of 2011, compared to pretax income of $994,000 for the third quarter of 2010, a decrease of $147,000.  This decrease resulted primarily from $278,000 in gains on sales of securities occurring in the third quarter of 2010 that did not recur in the third quarter of  2011, partially offset by a $145,000 decrease in provision for loan losses.  

Net Interest Income.  The Company's net interest income before provision for loan losses remained virtually unchanged comparing the third quarters of 2011 and 2010.  Our average loan portfolio increased by $13.8 million from $200.5 million in the third quarter of 2010 to $214.3 million in the third quarter of 2011, while our average investment in securities available for sale and other interest-earning assets (excluding loans) decreased by $27.6 million for a net reduction in interest-earning assets of $13.8 million.  Average interest-bearing liabilities decreased by $22.5 million from the third quarter of 2010 to $160.6 million in the third quarter of 2011, resulting primarily from reductions in average interest bearing deposits of $5.6 million and borrowings of $16.9 million.  Our interest rate spread increased 21 basis points from 3.52% in the third quarter of 2010 to 3.73% in the third quarter of 2011.  Our net interest margin increased 21 basis points from 3.84% in the third quarter of 2010 to 4.05% in the third quarter of 2011, due to the increase in interest rate spread as well as an increase of $10.4 million in average noninterest-bearing deposits.

Provision for Loan Losses.  A provision for loan losses of $33,000 was recorded for the third quarter of 2011, compared to a provision of $178,000 for the third quarter 2010, a decrease of $145,000.  The provision for loan losses in the third quarter at 2010 related primarily to increases in loans outstanding.

Noninterest Income.  Total noninterest income decreased by $317,000, from $514,000 in the third quarter of 2010 to $197,000 in the third quarter of 2011, with this reduction primarily attributable to $278,000 in gains on sale of investment securities in the third quarter of 2010 that did not recur in the third quarter of 2011.

Noninterest Expense.  Total noninterest expense remained stable, reflecting a small decrease of $36,000 from $2.097 million for the third quarter of 2010 to $2.061 million for the third quarter of 2011.  During the third quarter of 2011, additional expenses for rent, supplies, and other expenses of $38,000 were incurred to open the new Greenbrier branch and compensation expense included a $21,000 cumulative adjustment for prior periods for FAS123R forfeiture estimates.  These increases were more than offset by decreases in the FDIC assessment and professional fees of $62,000 and $22,000, respectively.  In addition, there was a loss of $49,000 on the early extinguishment of debt in the third quarter of 2010 that did not recur in 2011.

Income Taxes.  The Company's income tax expense for the third quarter of 2011 was $299,000, reflecting an effective tax rate of 35.3%, compared to income tax expense of $346,000 for the third quarter of 2010, reflecting an effective tax rate of 34.9%.  This increase in effective tax rate is primarily attributable to the impact on tax from the nondeductible cumulative adjustment for FAS123R forfeitures and to adjustments to tax estimated expense from prior periods based on actual taxes paid.

Net Income Available to Common Stockholders.  Because of the refinancing of our outstanding TARP preferred stock with SBLF preferred stock, the remaining unaccreted discount associated with the TARP preferred stock was expensed during the third quarter of 2011, reducing net income available to shareholders by $153,000.  After the impact of  this accelerated  accretion of the discount on our preferred stock and our preferred stock dividends, net income available to common stockholders was $296,000 for the third quarter of 2011, compared to $501,000 for the third quarter of 2010, a decrease of $205,000.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended September, 2011 and 2010

Overview.   The Company's pretax income was $2.56 million for the first nine months of 2011, compared to pretax income of $2.26 million for the first nine months of 2010, an increase of $301,000.  This increase resulted from a $718,000 increase in net interest income, a $293,000 decrease in provision for loan losses, and a decrease in noninterest expense of $67,000, the total of which was partially offset by a $677,000 decrease in gains on sales of securities from $764,000 in 2010 to $87,000 in 2011.

Net Interest Income.  The Company's net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $718,000 to $8.2 million in the first nine months of 2011, compared to $7.5 million in the first nine months of 2010.  Interest income in the first nine months of 2011 grew significantly, primarily due to a change in the mix in our average interest-earning assets from securities into loans.  We reduced the average balance of securities available for sale and other interest-earning assets (excluding loans) from $74.9 million in the first nine months of 2010 to $47.1 million in the first nine months of 2011.  At the same time we increased our average loan portfolio by $28.5 million compared to the first nine months of 2010.   Our interest rate spread increased 42 basis points from 3.46% in the first nine months of 2010 to 3.88% in the first nine months of 2011, and our net interest margin increased 39 basis points from 3.83% in the first nine months of 2010 to 4.22% in the first nine months of 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses.  A provision for loan losses of $44,000 was recorded for the first nine months of 2011, compared to a provision of $337,000 for the first nine months 2010, which related primarily to the substantial increase in the outstanding balance of our loan portfolio during 2010.

Noninterest Income.  Total noninterest income decreased by $777,000, from $1.4 million in the first nine months of 2010 to $627,000 in the first nine months of 2011.  The primary factor in this decrease was $764,000 of gains on the sales of investment securities in the first nine months of 2010, compared to a gain of only $87,000 in the first nine months of 2011.

Noninterest Expense.  Total noninterest expense decreased by $67,000 from $6.30 million in the first nine months of 2010 to $6.23 million in the first nine months of 2011.  Decreases in compensation expense, FDIC assessment, and loss on early extinguishment of debt of $75,000, $109,000, and $49,000, respectively, were partially offset by increases in occupancy and other expenses of $51,000 and $78,000, respectively.  

Income Taxes.  The Company's income tax expense for the first nine months of 2011 was $861,000, reflecting an effective tax rate of 33.6%, compared to income tax expense of $799,000 for the first nine months of 2010, reflecting an effective tax rate of 35.4%.  This reduction in effective tax rate was primarily attributable to an increase in tax-exempt interest income from certain loans.

Net Income Available to Common Stockholders.  The Company repaid $2.6 million, or 25%, of its outstanding TARP preferred stock in March 2011, with a resulting decrease in net income available to common shareholders of $57,000 from the accelerated accretion of the corresponding discount on our outstanding TARP preferred stock. During the third quarter of 2011, we redeemed our remaining TARP preferred stock with the proceeds of $7.8 million of non-cumulative preferred stock issued in connection with our participation in the SBLF program, expensing the remaining net discount, and reducing income available to common shareholders by a total of  $153,000 in the third quarter of 2011.  Even after the impact of preferred stock dividends and accelerated accretion of the entire discount on our TARP preferred stock, net income available to common stockholders was $1.137 million for the first nine months of 2011, compared to $1.021 million for the first nine months of 2010, an increase of $116,000.

Financial Condition of the Company

Total Assets.  The Company's total assets increased by $16.4 million, or 5.8%, from $281.4 million at September 30, 2010 to $297.8 million at September 30, 2011.  The increase in assets resulted primarily from a $10.4 million, or 18.3%, increase in our aggregate cash, securities available for sale, interest-bearing deposits in other banks and federal funds sold and a $6.7 million, or 3.2%, increase in the balance of our loan portfolio.

Investments.  Investments in certain securities available for sale late in the third quarter increased our portfolio by $17.9 million, or 75.0%, to $41.8 million at September 30, 2011 compared to $23.9 million at September 30, 2010.  Certificates of deposit, interest-bearing deposits in other banks, and federal funds sold decreased by a total of $9.2 million from $29.1 million at September 30, 2010 to $19.9 million at September 30, 2011.  

Loans.  Loans held for investment, net, were $214.3 million at September 30, 2011, an increase of $6.7 million, or 3.2%, from the loan balance of $207.6 million at September 30, 2010.  

Asset Quality.  Nonperforming assets were $1,753,000, or 0.59% of assets, at September 30, 2011, compared to $60,000 of nonperforming assets at September 30, 2010.  In addition to a bank branch site that we no longer plan to utilize, we obtained an additional property during the third quarter through foreclosure proceedings against one borrower. A total of $1.5 million in loans to one borrower were placed in nonaccrual status during the second quarter.  These nonaccrual loans are secured by a multi-purpose, owner-occupied office building located in Hampton Roads, and the Bank has obtained an appraisal of the building that reflects current market conditions to assist the Bank in its determination of the appropriate carrying value for the loans.

Deposits.  Total deposits at September 30, 2011 were $257.6 million compared to $233.6 million at September 30, 2010, an increase of $24.0 million, or 10.3%.  Core deposits, which are comprised of noninterest-bearing, money market, NOW and savings deposits, increased by $24.0 million, or 13.0%, from $184.2 million at September 30, 2010 to $208.2 million at September 30, 2011.

Average total deposits increased by $9.2 million, or 4.0%, from $228.2 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2010 to $237.4 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.  Average core deposits increased by $9.3 million over the comparable nine-month periods.  In addition, the mix of average noninterest-bearing deposits to average total deposits increased from 33.9% in the first nine months of 2010 to 36.3% in the first nine months of 2011, a factor that contributes to the improvement in our net interest margin.

Borrowed Funds.  Borrowed funds decreased by $6.2 million, from $8.6 million at September 30, 2010 to $2.4 million at September 30, 2011.  During the third quarter of 2010, the company repaid a $10.0 million, 2.40% fixed rate, medium term advance from the Atlanta Federal Home Loan Bank, incurring a $49,000 loss on extinguishment of debt.

Capital.  Stockholders' equity decreased by $1.5 million, or 4.2%, from $37.4 million at September 30, 2010 to $35.9 million at September 30, 2011.  In March 2011, consistent with our strategic plan and with the approval of the U.S. Treasury, the Company redeemed 2,606 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, resulting in a decrease of $2.6 million in the outstanding balance of our TARP preferred stock.  During the third quarter of 2011, the Company sold to the U. S. Treasury $7.8 million of non-cumulative preferred stock in connection with our participation in the SBLF program.  The Company used the proceeds from this transaction to redeem the balance of our outstanding TARP preferred stock of $7.8 million.  The resulting $2.4 million reduction in stockholders' equity from the decrease in the balance of preferred stock was partially offset by an increase in retained earnings of $1.0 million between September 30, 2010 and September 30, 2011.
