Commercial National Reports Strong 2012 Results

LATROBE, Pa., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial National Financial Corporation (OTC Markets:CNAF)(Company), parent Company of Commercial Bank & Trust of PA, has reported earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company earned $1,074,000 (or $.38 per average share outstanding) in 2012 compared to $1,879,000 (or $.65 per average share outstanding) in 2011. The Company earned $6,089,000 (or $2.13 per average share outstanding) for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012 and $4,726,000 (or $1.65 per average share outstanding) for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011. The Company's annualized return on average assets and average equity were 1.16% and 7.70%, respectively, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to 1.92% and 15.36%, respectively, for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The Company's annualized return on average assets and average equity were 2.14% and 14.74%, respectively, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012 compared to 1.69% and 13.22%, respectively, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011. During the second half of 2011 an expansion of high-yield municipal bond leverage materially influenced earnings for that time period. During the first quarter of 2012 that leverage position was extensively reduced inducing an earnings and equity capture of considerable magnitude which profoundly shaped individual quarterly and full year results for 2012. In the aftermath of this deleveraging, the Company's ongoing core earnings continue to exceed prevailing banking industry norms. Major contributors to the Company's high profitability include outstanding earning asset credit quality, strong net interest margin and exceptional tax efficiency.

President and Chief Executive Officer, Gregg E. Hunter noted, "Sequential third quarter 2012 earnings were impacted by non-recurring expense events. During the quarter, a $182,000 wire fraud charge stemming from a series of counterfeit non-U.S./foreign check deposits was recorded. Legal costs related to this matter amounted to an additional $5,000. Full recovery on this wire fraud recognition and all associated legal costs is being aggressively pursued by corporate legal counsel against the local parties responsible for this incident. The Company and its legal counsel consider the case for recovery to be strong even though such actions are always to some degree uncertain. Also during the third quarter, settlement was reached by corporate counsel with a claimant who had brought multiple legal actions against many banks in western Pennsylvania alleging non-compliance with federal disabilities access requirements for selected automated teller machine (ATM) locations. The Company's total expenditures related to the legal settlement of this matter were $35,000 including corporate attorney's fees."

Mr. Hunter added, "Loan approvals and fundings greatly improved during 2012's third quarter relative to the first six months of the year. Outstanding loan portfolio credit quality was evidenced by minimal delinquencies and no required loan loss provisioning thus far in 2012 along with a complete lack of any non-accrual or restructured loans at third quarter-end. In addition, no loan loss provisions have been needed since the fourth quarter of 2008. On September 30, 2012 the Company's relatively large $108.2 million book value securities portfolio had a 6.46% tax equivalent yield, a 4.4 year average life, a 3.9 year duration and was favorably characterized by $9,391,000 in net unrealized market value gains. Deposit growth was solid during the first nine months of 2012. It was also profitable with non-interest bearing demand deposits continuing to represent the Company's largest funding source. Non-core funding dependence remains immaterial. At third quarter-end, excess funds on deposit in the Company's interest bearing Federal Reserve account provided a substantial liquidity enhancing and market exposure moderating balance sheet cushion pending future deployment into high quality earning assets as opportunities arise. Tier one risk-based, total risk-based and leverage capital ratios for the Company were 25.10%, 25.94% and 13.76% respectively at third quarter-end. All of these critical capital ratios vastly surpass both present and proposed regulatory requirements. The Company's capital base and anticipated earnings remain well-supportive of the regular quarterly $0.26 per share common stock cash dividend."

In addition to Latrobe, Pennsylvania where it is headquartered, the Company operates ten community banking facilities in Greensburg, Hempfield Township, Ligonier, North Huntingdon, Unity Township and West Newton, Pennsylvania and also maintains a commercial business development sales force throughout its entire market area. The Company operates an asset management and trust division of Commercial Bank & Trust of PA headquartered in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Commercial Bank & Trust of PA also serves its customer base from an Internet banking site (www.cbthebank.com) and an automated TouchTone Teller banking system.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
