Jan 23, 2013, 17:47 ET from Sun Bancorp, Inc.

VINELAND, N.J., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sun Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNBC) reported today a net loss available to common shareholders of $25.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to a net loss available to common shareholders of $1.5 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011.

The following are key items and events that occurred during the fourth quarter of 2012:

  • As part of a continuing strategy to reduce balance sheet risk, the Company signed a definitive agreement on January 17, 2013 to sell $45.8 million of loans, having a book balance of $35.1 million, to a third-party investor for gross proceeds of $22.0 million. The transaction, which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2013, resulted in a net loss of $7.6 million after accounting for loan loss reserves, customer derivative termination costs and other expenses. As the formal approval to sell these loans occurred during 2012, the related loans were transferred to held-for-sale as of December 31, 2012 at fair value. In addition, the Company reached workout settlements with several troubled borrowers, resulting in a loss of $6.0 million.
  • Provision expense totaled $24.2 million during the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $6.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The allowance for loan losses equaled $46.5 million at quarter end, a decrease of $2.5 million from September 30, 2012, and an increase of $4.8 million from December 31, 2011. The allowance for loan losses equaled 2.04% of gross loans held-for-investment and 57.8% of non-performing loans held for investment as compared to 2.12% and 40.6% and 1.82% and 38.7%, respectively, at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.
  • Commercial loan production was $114 million during the fourth quarter versus $113 million in the linked quarter.  The Company continues to maintain a disciplined underwriting and pricing strategy in this uncertain economic environment. 
  • The net interest margin equaled 3.30% for the fourth quarter of 2012 versus 3.41% in the linked quarter. The current quarter margin was negatively impacted by the maturity of legacy commercial loans as well as the overall low interest rate environment.
  • Non-interest income decreased $2.8 million to $6.8 million during the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to the linked quarter primarily due to an increase of $1.6 million in swap termination fees, of which $979 thousand was a result of liabilities assumed from the loan sale, and the remaining fees related to other problem loan workouts. Gains on the sale of mortgage loans declined by $510 thousand as the linked quarter included a $1.5 million positive mark-to-market adjustment from a fair value election on its loans held-for-sale, effective July 1, 2012.  The Company's residential mortgage operations remain strong as $236 million in residential mortgage loans were closed and $149 million sold during the fourth quarter compared to $240 million and $120 million, respectively, in the linked quarter.  The Company originated $665 million in 2012 versus $192 million in 2011.
  • Total risk-based capital was 13.73% at December 31, 2012, well above 11.50%, the regulatory required level.

"This was an impactful quarter for Sun, culminating an impactful year of successful risk reduction and revenue growth strategies," said Thomas X. Geisel, Sun's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We were able to simultaneously strengthen our balance sheet by significantly reducing classified assets to near peer levels and at the same time demonstrate our competitive advantage with meaningful commercial and mortgage loan production. In 2013, we will continue with a laser like focus on how we deliver the bank to our customers and provide value towards their financial goal achievement."

Discussion of Results:

Balance Sheet

  • Total assets were $3.22 billion at December 31, 2012, as compared to $3.18 billion at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.
  • Gross loans held-for-investment were $2.27 billion at December 31, 2012, as compared to $2.31 billion at September 30, 2012 and $2.29 billion at December 31, 2011. This decrease is the result of the Company's aggressive problem loan workout strategies implemented in 2012.
  • Deposits increased by $66.4 million from the linked quarter to $2.71 billion at December 31, 2012. The increase was due to an increase in short-term time deposits.
  • Borrowings increased by $23.0 million from the linked quarter in order to fund the continued residential loan growth.

Net Interest Income and Margin

  • On a tax equivalent basis, net interest income decreased $355 thousand over the linked quarter to $24.2 million. The net interest margin decreased 11 basis points to 3.30% from 3.41% for the linked quarter, and 24 basis points as compared to the same quarter in 2011. The average yield on interest-earning assets decreased 12 basis points over the linked quarter from 3.99% to 3.87%. This decrease is due to a corresponding decline in loan yields and excess cash.  The Company held $170 million of cash as of December 31, 2012.  The commercial loan yields declined seven basis points due to lower rates on new originations combined with pay-offs of higher yielding legacy loans and residential real estate yields decreased 21 basis points due to significantly lower market rates. The margin variance from the prior year is due to the similar pressures in the current interest rate environment.

  Non-Interest Income

  • Non-interest income was $6.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $2.8 million from $9.6 million for the linked quarter and $11 thousand above the comparable prior year quarter's level of $6.8 million. The decrease from the linked quarter was primarily attributable to an increase of $1.6 million in swap termination fees as a result of the Company's aggressive workout strategies. Gains on the sale of mortgage loans declined $510 thousand as the linked quarter included a $1.5 million positive mark-to-market adjustment from a fair value election on its loans held-for-sale, effective July 1, 2012. Excluding mark-to-market adjustments, normalized mortgage gains were $3.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 versus $2.7 million in the linked quarter.  The Company also had a decrease of $424 thousand in deposit service charges from the linked quarter due to declining volumes. 

Non-Interest Expense

  • The Company incurred $31.6 million of non-interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of $738 thousand over the linked quarter and an increase of $4.4 million from the comparable prior year quarter. Professional fees increased by $677 thousand over the linked quarter due to additional compliance related consulting costs. Advertising costs were $576 thousand higher than the linked quarter due to ongoing deposit promotions as well as the residential mortgage growth. Reserves for unused credit commitments also increased by $280 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2012 over the linked quarter.  These increases were partially offset by a $1.4 million decline in problem loan costs as the Company has reached a more normalized run rate for problem assets. The increase in non-interest expense from the prior year period is due primarily to additional salaries and benefits expense associated with the mortgage origination expansion in 2012 as well as increased professional fees and advertising expenses. 

Asset Quality

  • The provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $24.2 million, as compared to $1.9 million in the linked quarter and $6.8 million in the comparable prior year quarter. The allowance for loan losses was $46.5 million at December 31, 2012, or 2.04% of gross loans held-for-investment, as compared to an allowance for loan losses to gross loans held-for-investment ratio of 1.82% at December 31, 2011 and 2.12% at September 30, 2012.  Net charge-offs recorded in the current quarter were $26.7 million, of which $13.1 million related to the loans sale, or 1.12% of average loans, as compared to $4.2 million, or 0.18% of average loans for the linked quarter and $20.4 million, or 0.87% of average loans outstanding for the same quarter in the prior year.
  • Total non-performing assets were $100.6 million, or 4.11% of total gross loans held-for-investment, loans held-for-sale and real estate owned at December 31, 2012, as compared to $126.4 million, or 5.32% and $112.7 million, or 4.86%, respectively, at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011. Non-performing loans decreased to $93.2 million at December 31, 2012 as compared to $120.8 million at September 30, 2012. The December 31, 2012 balance is inclusive of $12.7 million of commercial loans held-for-sale.  This decrease is due to charge-downs from the aforementioned pending loan sale and problem loan workouts completed in the fourth quarter.

Capital

  • Stockholders' equity totaled $262.6 million at December 31, 2012 compared to $309.1 million at December 31, 2011. The Company's tangible equity to tangible assets ratio was 6.95% at December 31, 2012, as compared to 8.41% at December 31, 2011.  At December 31, 2012, the Company's total risk-based capital ratio, Tier 1 capital ratio and leverage capital ratio were approximately 13.73%, 11.83%, and 9.30%, respectively.  At December 31, 2012, Sun National Bank's total risk-based capital ratio, Tier 1 capital ratio and leverage capital ratio were approximately 13.04%, 11.78%, and 9.26%, respectively. 

Impact of Hurricane Sandy

  • The Company incurred $4.6 million impact due to Hurricane Sandy.  This is composed of $4.4 million of additional loan loss reserves and $222 thousand of repair costs for facilities. So far, we have not seen any material deterioration in our loan portfolio due to Sandy. We completed a thorough assessment and thought it would be prudent to add an additional reserve to capture the potential risk as a result of the storm.
