City National Bank Reports Earnings for 2012 Fourth Quarter; Bank Announces Strongest Year in History

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - January 24, 2013) -  City National Bank of Florida (CNB) announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2012.

The quarter ending December 31, 2012 completed a record year for CNB. The bank reported net income of $158.0 million, compared to net income of $4.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income for 2012 was $190.2 million, compared to $34.4 million for 2011, capping a banner year for 2012 -- the strongest in the bank's history.

The fourth quarter earnings included a one-time $136 million tax credit as a result of the release of deferred tax assets. They were released due to sustained excellent financial performance, superior asset quality and effective management.

Even without that one-time benefit, CNB had a record year with $69.9 million in pre-tax, pre-amortization income, compared to $50 million in 2011. The previous record was set in 2007, when the bank posted $68.5 million in pre-tax, pre-amortization income.

In the fourth quarter, core earnings before securities gains were $15.7 million, compared to $8.9 million during the same quarter last year. Core earnings were $53.6 million for 2012, compared to $41.8 million for 2011.

"Our earnings demonstrate the continued strength and stability of City National Bank and are the result of our commitment to delivering best-in-class service to clients and executing our diversification and growth strategy," CNB President and Chief Executive Officer Jorge Gonzalez said.

CNB has consistently demonstrated extraordinary strength and stability. Its outstanding capital ratios, and overall excellent financial results were recognized by BauerFinancial when the leading bank ratings firm reported that City National Bank had once again received a five-star "Superior" rating, the highest rating possible.

The record financial performance was driven in part by more than $1 billion in new lending, excellent client retention and acquisition, and continued asset quality excellence.

"I am proud of every member of the CNB team as everyone here plays a vital role in our success. It's with their drive and determination that we've been able to excel in a difficult economic environment," Gonzalez added. "These results have been consistent for many months, and we have solid momentum going into 2013."

Loan production continued to grow in 2012, with more than $1 billion in new loan commitments, a 24.4 percent increase during the twelve months ending December 31. CNB's loan portfolio grew by $488 million in 2012. City National Bank has experienced 20 consecutive months of loan growth.

Deposits grew by more than $613 million to $3.53 billion at the end of 2012, from $2.92 billion at the end of 2011.

Assets grew by $833 million since the beginning of 2012, elevating the bank's asset total to $4.81 billion at the end of the year.

City National Bank remains one of the most liquid and best capitalized banks in Florida, making it one of the safest and soundest institutions in the state.

"2012 has proven to be an extremely successful year for City National Bank, and we are excited about the promise of 2013 with such strong momentum behind us," Gonzalez said. "Our investments in people, technology and growth reflect our confidence in the opportunities that lie ahead."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
