Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. Reports Results for the Fourth Quarter 2012

FREDERICK, Md., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frederick County Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: FCBI), the parent company for Frederick County Bank (FCB), announced today that for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, the Company recorded net income of $276 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.18, as compared to net income of $344 thousand and diluted earnings per share of $0.23 recorded for the fourth quarter of 2011.    

The Company reported net income of $1.40 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.92 for the year ended December 31, 2012, as compared to net income of $1.02 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.68 for the same period in 2011.  Full year 2012 earnings included a provision for loan losses of $1.28 million, securities gains in the amount of $1.05 million and provision for foreclosed properties of $716 thousand, as compared to a provision for loan losses of $1.74 million, securities gains in the amount of $386 thousand and provision for foreclosed properties of $124 thousand for 2011.

The decreased provision for loan losses for the twelve month period reflects the slightly positive impact that strengthening economic conditions have had on borrowers' ability to repay loans as well as stabilizing loan collateral valuations.  At December 31, 2012, the ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets was 1.87%, consisting of $3.82 million in nonaccrual loans and $2.05 million in foreclosed properties, as compared to 1.89% at December 31, 2011, consisting of $2.02 million in nonaccrual loans and $3.49 million in foreclosed properties.

The allowance for loan losses was $3.57 million and $3.22 million as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively and the ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans stood at 1.56% and 1.51% as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The increase in the allowance was the result of potential charge-offs during the current year.  Nonperforming assets stood at $5.87 million at December 31, 2012 and at $5.52 million at December 31, 2011. 

Net loan charge-offs for the full year of 2012 totaled $921 thousand, which consists primarily of three (3) commercial real estate, two (2) commercial loan relationships, two (2) construction land development and one (1) residential mortgage.  This compares to net loan charge-offs for the same period in 2011 totaling $2.24 million consisting primarily of nine (9) commercial real estate and three (3) commercial loan relationships.  For the quarter end December 31, 2012, net charge-offs were $437 thousand for four (4) commercial loan relationships compared to $137 thousand for one (1) commercial loan relationship during the same period in 2011.

The Company also reported that, as of December 31, 2012, assets stood at $314.5 million, with total deposits of $268.1 million and gross loans of $229.3 million, representing increases of 7.7%, 8.8% and 8.0% respectively, compared to the full year of 2011.  Loan and deposit growth, and consequently asset growth, were relatively strong for the year and reflect management's intent to strengthen the Company's capital ratios.  The net interest margin was 3.89% for the year 2012 and 3.93% for the year 2011, and was negatively impacted by the lower loan rates required to be competitive in a market driven by re-financing.  This compression noted in the net interest margin during 2012 is expected to potentially worsen going forward.

President and CEO Martin S. Lapera said, "Frederick County Bank remains well capitalized. With ratios of 13.50% and 12.25% for Total Risk-Based Capital and Tier 1 Capital, respectively, compared to the regulatory minimums of 10.00% and 6.00%, our capital ratios significantly exceed the regulatory requirements for well capitalized banks.  Our liquidity position remains very strong, with $30.4 million in federal funds sold and interest-bearing deposits in other banks, which equates to 9.7% of assets." 

Frederick County Bank commenced operations in 2001 and has posted positive quarterly earnings continuously since 2002, its second year in operation.  The Bank is headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, and conducts full service commercial banking services through five offices, four of which are in the City of Frederick and one office located in Walkersville, Maryland.  Frederick County Bank maintains a solid Four Star Rating from Bankrate.com as of September 30, 2012 and the top Five Star Rating from Bauer Financial, Inc., as of September 30, 2012.
