  • Fourth quarter net income to common shareholders of $345,000 or $0.13 per common diluted share, secured its 11th consecutive quarter of profitable results.
  • Total loans increased 19% to $159.20 million at December 31, 2012, compared with $133.48 million at December 31, 2011, primarily reflecting an increase in owner-occupied and investor-owned commercial real estate loans.
  • Deposits rose 10% to $174.31 million at December 31, 2012, compared with $158.69 million at December 31, 2011.
  • Total non-performing assets including troubled debt restructurings declined to 2.68% of total assets in 2012, compared with 3.35% of total assets in 2011.
  • The company's cost of funds fell to 25 basis points, an all time low.
  • Tangible book value per share increased 6% year-over-year to $7.79 at December 31, 2012.

"Capital Pacific experienced quality client growth in 2012 and we achieved considerable success identifying new commercial lending opportunities within our areas of expertise. We also continued our focus on operating efficiently, managing our net interest margin carefully, and addressing problem assets," said Mark Stevenson, President and CEO. "Our return on average assets of 0.82% in fourth quarter 2012 reflected steady improvement throughout the year, and compared with a return on average assets of 0.54% in fourth quarter 2011. For the year, return on average assets totaled 0.69% as compared to the prior year's return on average assets of 0.37%, demonstrating the progress made."

Net Income and Income Statement Demonstrate Growth

For the year ended December 31, 2012, the company reported net income of $1.37 million, compared with $695,000 in 2011. Net income to common shareholders (after preferred stock dividends) increased to $1.11 million or $0.44 per diluted common share in 2012, compared with $437,000 or $0.21 per diluted share in 2011, up 110%. In fourth quarter 2012, the company reported net income to common shareholders of $345,000 or $0.13 per diluted common share, compared with net income of $202,000 or $0.08 per diluted common share in fourth quarter 2011.

Total interest income was $8.17 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared with $8.11 million in 2011, up 1%, as declining loan yields kept revenue growth at a modest level. However, the bank maintained a strong 3.98% net interest margin in the fourth quarter, unchanged from the same quarter in 2011. The bank lowered interest expense 36% year over year and maintained stability in its provision for loan losses, resulting in net interest income of $7.34 million in 2012, compared with $7.01 million in 2011. Non-interest income for the year ended December 31, 2012 rose 21% to $765,000, compared with $631,000 at December 31, 2011. Total non-interest expense in 2012 declined 8% to $6.23 million, compared with $6.78 million at December 31, 2011, primarily reflecting a $282,000 recovery of work-out related expenses incurred in prior periods.

Salaries and benefits increased by $325,000, or 10% in 2012, growing to $3.7 million. "We built a very experienced team of commercial banking officers in 2011, which is reflected in the higher salaries and benefits in 2012," noted Stevenson. One of the cornerstones of Capital Pacific Bank's success and continued growth is our ability to attract and retain top industry talent. We continue to enhance our team as appropriate."

Balance Sheet Reflects Loan and Deposit Growth Asset Quality Stable

Total loans at December 31, 2012 increased 19% to $159.20 million, compared with $133.48 million at December 31, 2011, with strong sequential loan growth in the fourth quarter totaling $14 million. "While the competition for quality loans remains heated, Capital Pacific Bank provides superior service and support, and specializes in niche markets such as private schools and not-for-profit institutions, market segments that are often underserved," said Stevenson.

Stevenson said strengthening the bank's commercial lending portfolio remains a major focus and is an integral part of the company's ongoing growth strategy. "Loan growth was a major contributor to the company's improved financial performance and strong earnings growth in 2012," he explained. "We are confident in the likelihood of continued loan growth as managed by our existing sales team and believe this is an important aspect of delivering increased earnings in 2013."

Total non-performing assets including troubled debt restructurings totaled $5.4 million, unchanged from the prior quarter and down modestly when compared to the end of 2011. Total non-performing assets including troubled debt restructurings declined to 2.68% of total assets in 2012, compared with 3.35% of total assets in 2011.

The company continued selling its other real estate owned, reducing its balance to $198,000 in fourth quarter 2012 compared with $724,000 in fourth quarter 2011. Capital Pacific Bank's loan loss reserve was $2.64 million at December 31, 2012, compared with $2.89 million at December 31, 2011, primarily reflecting the bank's loan charge-offs and recoveries throughout the year. The loan loss reserve as a percentage of total loans was 1.65% as of December 31, 2012, which compared to 2.17% as of December 31, 2011.

Stevenson noted that throughout 2012, the company had little in the way of loans 30 days or more past due. "We feel this long-term trend of sound performance underscores the significantly improved quality of our current loan portfolio as compared with the past few years," he explained.

Total deposits at December 31, 2012 rose 10% to $174.31 million compared with $158.69 million at December 31, 2011. Throughout the year, the bank grew non interest-bearing demand balances 37% and interest-bearing demand balances 24%, while trimming certificates of deposit 29%. The bank's cost of funds declined to 25 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2012, a historical low.

"We've grown total core deposits and maintained an attractive deposit mix, which is a significant accomplishment," explained Stevenson. "The steady growth of deposits reflects our ability to attract well balanced companies and organizations, with both deposit and lending needs and we strongly emphasize this type of relationship banking with new customers."

Operational Efficiency, Capital Adequacy, and Outlook

The company improved its efficiency ratio to 73.9% in 2012, as compared to 85.2% in 2011 and believes its ability to drive more revenue through a single-headquarter facility is a key component of future improvements. The company's return on average common equity increased significantly throughout 2012, and was 7.06% in the fourth quarter 2012, compared with 4.39% in fourth quarter 2011.

The company is well-capitalized by regulatory standards as of December 31, 2012. The company's tier 1 leverage ratio, tier 1 capital ratio and total risk-based capital ratio were 11.2%, 14.0% and 15.2%, respectively. To be considered well-capitalized, a bank holding company must have ratios of 5.00%, 6.00% and 10.00%, respectively.

Stevenson reflected on the company's performance, "When put in perspective, we have strengthened our income statement and aggressively addressed the bank's asset quality which should have a positive impact on future performance. Just as important, we have established a culture of client growth, backed by appropriate goals for our market. While we would like to see advancement in the overall business and economic climate which will benefit our clients, in the meantime, our diverse market has many opportunities for growth including clusters such as high technology, advanced manufacturing, software development, and education that have proven resistant to economic vagaries."

"We are mindful of building shareholder value, and we are pleased to report a steady increase in the company's tangible book value in each quarter of 2012, now totaling $7.79 per common share. We appreciate the support from shareholders, and look forward to continuing positive, value-creating performance in 2013."
