Total assets were $583.0 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $615.3 million at June 30, 2011.  Net loans decreased by 8.6% to $432.6 million as of June 30, 2012, compared to $473.4 million as of June 30, 2011.  Total deposits remained relatively flat at $521.5 million as of June 30, 2012, compared to $521.2 million as of June 30, 2011.  Total deposits as of June 30, 2012 increased $47.6 million from December 31, 2011 driven primarily by an increase in time deposits of $28.4 million, noninterest-bearing demand deposits of $10.5 million and money market, NOW and savings deposits of $8.7 million.

As of June 30, 2012, nonperforming assets were $54.0 million, or 9.25% of total assets, compared to $42.7 million, or 6.94% of total assets a year ago.  The increase in nonperforming assets from the second quarter of 2011 to the second quarter of 2012 is primarily a result of the ongoing challenging economic environment and the lagging recovery in the market in which the Company operates.  As of June 30, 2012, nonperforming assets acquired in the merger with Atlantic BancGroup, Inc. ("ABI") were $12.0 million, or 22.2% of total nonperforming assets.

The decrease in loans past due 30-89 days in the current quarter, still accruing interest, was driven by accelerated collection efforts by the Company as well as a migration of past due loans to nonaccrual.  Nonperforming loans decreased $2.7 million from $49.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $46.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

The allowance for loan losses was 4.56% of total loans at June 30, 2012, compared to 2.47% for the comparable period in 2011 and 2.82% at December 31, 2011.  Provision for loan loss expense was $11.6 million and $11.7 million for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $1.1 million and $3.0 million for the comparable periods in 2011.  The Company has recorded net charge-offs of $4 million for both the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $447 thousand and $4.1 million for the comparable periods in 2011.  The high level of charge-offs for the six months ended June 30, 2012 is due primarily to the timing of recording charge-offs related to the Company's disposition of distressed assets on an individual customer basis.  This fits with the Company's current overall strategy to accelerate the disposition of substandard assets as discussed further below. 

During the second quarter of 2012, the Company adopted a new overall strategy to accelerate the disposition of substandard assets on an individual customer basis.  Certain current appraised values were discounted to estimated fair value based on current market data such as recent sales of similar properties, discussions with potential buyers and negotiations with existing customers.  These negotiations have materially impacted the Company's earnings for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 through the increased provision for loan losses.  The Company expects to continue this new strategy for the foreseeable future.  In addition, the Company has executed a financial advisory agreement with an investment banking firm (the "Firm").  Under the agreement, the Firm has agreed to work with Company management to assist in raising capital as well as advising the Company on reducing classified assets. 

On June 18, 2012, Price W. Schwenck retired as the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and Chief Executive Officer of the Bank.  On that same date, we appointed Stephen C. Green as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and Chief Executive Officer of the Bank subject to regulatory approval.  On May 14, 2012, Margaret A. Incandela was appointed as Executive Vice President and Chief Credit Officer of the Company and the Bank.  Subsequently, on June 14, 2012, she was also appointed as Chief Operating Officer of the Company and the Bank subject to applicable regulatory approval.  We have offered each employment contracts with equity awards subject to such regulatory approvals, as well as shareholder approvals. 

Net loss for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 was $11.8 million and $10.5 million, compared to a net income of $1.0 million and $1.5 million, respectively, during the comparable periods in 2011.  The decrease in net income was driven primarily by the increase in provision for loan losses, OREO expenses and decreased net interest income.  The decreased net interest income from the previous year was due to a decrease in average earning assets, primarily driven by a reduction in loan balances and the yield earned on these assets.

Interest income decreased $1.6 million during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the same period in the prior year. This decrease was driven by a decrease in average earning assets, in particular loan balances which declined by $38.6 million when compared to the same period in the prior year. This was further exacerbated by a decrease in the loan yield to 5.25% for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 from the 6.16% recognized during the three-month period ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in the loan yield was driven by the following factors when compared to the same period in the prior year:

  • Decrease in accretion recognized on acquired loans of approximately $647 thousand;
  • Increase in loans on nonaccrual of $6.9 million;
  • Decrease in the weighted-average loan yield for new loans of 100 basis points; and
  • Modifications to reduce existing loan rates to be competitive in the current low-rate market environment.

Interest income decreased $2.7 million during the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the same period in the prior year. This decrease was driven by a decrease in average earning assets, in particular loan balances which declined by $47.9 million when compared to the same period in the prior year. This was further exacerbated by a decrease in the loan yield to 5.33% for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 from the 5.92% recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in the loan yield was driven by the following factors when compared to the same period in the prior year:

  • Decrease in accretion recognized on acquired loans of approximately $800 thousand;
  • Increase in loans on nonaccrual of $6.9 million;
  • Decrease in the weighted-average loan yield for new loans of 85 basis points; and
  • Modifications to reduce existing loan rates to be competitive in the current low-rate market environment.

Interest expense decreased by $444 thousand and $1.0 million during the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively, when compared to the same periods in the prior year.  This was partially due to a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities to 1.17% and 1.19% for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to 1.52% and 1.51% for the same periods in the prior year.  This decrease reflected the ongoing reduction in interest rates paid on deposits as a result of the re-pricing of deposits in the current market environment as well as a shift in the funding mix from interest-bearing to more non-interest-bearing deposits.

Noninterest income for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively, decreased to $290 thousand and $727 thousand when compared to $404 thousand and $800 thousand in the comparable periods in the prior year.  The decrease for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, compared to the same period in the prior year, was driven by a $23 thousand decrease in service charges on deposit accounts as well as a $57 thousand decrease for realized gain on securities.  The decrease for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, compared to the same period in the prior year, was driven primarily by a $56 thousand decrease in service charges on deposit accounts as well as a $57 thousand decrease for realized gains on securities, offset partially by a $70 thousand fee received related to a loan pre-payment during the first half of 2012.

Noninterest expense increased to $5.7 million and $10.0 million, respectively, for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, compared to $4.7 million and $8.9 million, respectively, during the same periods in 2011.  Increases to compensation, advertising and OREO expenses were offset by reductions in data processing, regulatory assessments and merger-related costs.

The income tax benefit for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $30 thousand compared to $465 thousand for the same period in 2011.  The Company recorded a full valuation allowance against its deferred taxes at December 31, 2011.  This was substantially due to the fact that it was "more likely than not" that the benefit would not be realized in future periods due to Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code.  The calculation for the income tax provision or benefit generally does not consider the tax effects of changes in other comprehensive income ("OCI"), which is a component of shareholders' equity on the balance sheet.  However, an exception is provided in certain circumstances, such as when there is a full valuation allowance against the net deferred tax assets, there is a loss from continuing operations and income in other components of the financial statements.  In such a case, income from other categories, such as changes in OCI, must be considered in determining a tax benefit to be allocated to the loss from continuing operations.  During the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, this resulted in $30 thousand of income tax benefit allocated to continuing operations.
