Columbia Commercial Bancorp Reports Full Year and Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

HILLSBORO, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- Columbia Commercial Bancorp (OTCBB: CLBC), a single bank holding company for Columbia Community Bank (the Bank), reports a net profit of $1.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $184,000, or $0.06 per diluted share for 2011. Net income for fourth quarter 2012 was $608,000 or $0.18 per diluted share after a $750,000 negative loan loss provision which was partially offset by a $144,000 prepayment fee expense on $6.9 million of FHLB borrowings. The effect of these two transactions was $370,000 after tax. Net income for third quarter 2012 was $294,000, or $0.09 per diluted share. Return on average equity for the full year of 2012 was 6.64% compared to 1.03% for 2011.

"The Company had considerable success during 2012 with a variety of its strategic objectives," states the Company's President and CEO, Rick A. Roby. And he continues, "During the year, low-yielding cash and investments were utilized to pay down high-cost liabilities such as brokered deposits, repurchase agreements, and FHLB borrowings; and while these activities deleveraged the overall balance sheet by almost $30.0 million, at the same time we were still able to grow loans by over $6.4 million. Year-to-date net interest margins reflect the success of these initiatives which also set a strong foundation for continued improvement in net interest income for 2013. Additionally, during the fourth quarter, the Company converted over $1.9 million of its 8.50% convertible subordinated notes into common stock which moving forward reduces both the leverage and interest expense at the holding company level."

Assets

Total assets of $322.6 million as of December 31, 2012 were down $30.0 million, or 8.5%, over the past year when compared to the $352.6 million at year-end 2011. Cash, federal funds sold, and investments totaled $61.3 million as of December 31, 2012, or 19.0% of total assets, and are down $35.4 million compared to the end of 2011 when they totaled $96.7 million, or 27.4% of total assets. This reduction was brought about by retiring $4.7 million of FHLB borrowings that matured during second quarter 2012, prepaying $6.9 million during the fourth quarter of FHLB borrowings that had an average rate of 4.23%, and throughout the year by reducing brokered deposits by $9.9 million and repurchase agreements by $9.3 million. "And after all the changes during 2012, the Company still retains strong liquidity with over $36.9 million of cash and unpledged securities, or 11.4% of total assets," states Bob Ekblad, the Company's Chief Financial Officer.

Total loans at $244.8 million as of December 31, 2012 are up $1.0 million, or 0.4%, during the fourth quarter and have increased $6.4 million or 2.7% when compared to the $238.4 million outstanding as of December 31, 2011. "We are seeing an increased level of confidence within several of our targeted business segments so loan demand has picked up this past year; and while the competition for these loans is strong, our team of experienced professionals continue to show our ability to succeed as evidenced by this loan growth; and we expect more for 2013," comments the Company's Chief Credit Officer, Fred Johnson.

As of December 31, 2012, the Bank had $329,000 in loans, or 0.13% of total loans, that were past due over 30 days and still accruing interest.

During 2012 the Bank had $1.8 million in loan charge-offs relative to $1.6 million in loan recoveries, or net charge-offs of $180,000 for the year; compared to 2011 when net charge-offs were $1.8 million. The considerable recoveries during the year along with a general improvement in other credit matrices within the loan portfolio allowed the bank to negative loan provision $750,000 for 2012 compared to 2011 when it had a loan loss provision expense of $1.4 million. As a result of the strengthening loan portfolio and negative provision expense, the allowance for loan losses as of December 31, 2012 at $6.2 million, was 2.51% of loans compared to year-end 2011 when it was $7.1 million, or 2.97% of loans.

Non-performing assets consist of loans on nonaccrual status and other real estate owned (OREO) which totaled $17.7 million as of December 31, 2012 and are down $1.3 million compared to year-end 2011 when they were $19.0 million. During 2012 the Bank reduced non-performing assets through pay downs on nonaccrual loans and the liquidation of OREO properties by $7.1 million while additions to nonaccrual loans (which were primarily from two existing relationships) were $5.8 million. OREO at year-end 2012 consisted of nine properties totaling $7.3 million which was 41.2% of non-performing assets while nonaccrual loans consisted of nine relationships totaling $10.4 million, or 58.8% of non-performing assets.

Deposits

Total deposits for the Bank at $228.0 million as of December 31, 2012 were down $11.1 million, or 4.6% for the year when compared to deposits of $239.1 million at year-end 2011. And Mr. Ekblad comments, "The reduction in deposits over the past year was certainly not reflective of our efforts to grow local deposits, in fact, local deposit growth for 2012 was quite successful at almost $11.1 million and the reason for the overall deposit decline was due to an intentional $10.0 million reduction in brokered deposits and another $12.2 million reduction in nontraditional out-of-area deposits during 2012." As of December 31, 2012, the Bank had $5.0 million in brokered deposits which was 2.2% of total deposits compared to $15.0 million and $27.7 million in brokered deposits as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 when they were 6.3% and 10.9% of total deposits, respectively. The Bank has $4.6 million in brokered deposits that mature throughout 2013 which will not be renewed.

Earnings

Asset income for full year 2012 at $14.7 million was down $1.2 million, or 7.2%, compared to the $15.9 million for 2011 due substantially from lower yields on both the loan and investment portfolios. In addition, asset income was also down for 2012 due to a $3.8 million reduction in average outstanding loans during 2012 relative to 2011 (even though year-end 2012 outstanding loans were higher than year-end 2011 outstanding loans). However, the reduction in asset income of $1.2 million was offset by a $1.3 million, or 20.2%, reduction in interest expenses from 2012 relative to 2011. This reduction in interest expense relates to reductions in outstanding deposits, repurchase agreements, and FHLB borrowings; as well as a general downward trend in overall deposit rates paid by the Bank. Net interest income for 2012 at $9.5 million was therefore up slightly, $181,000 or 1.9%, over net interest income for 2011. However, also included in the 2012 interest expense was a $144,000 prepayment penalty during fourth quarter related to the early pay-off of $6.9 million of FHLB borrowings that had an average rate of 4.23%. Net interest margin for the full year of 2012 at 3.24% was 16 basis points higher than the 3.08% for 2011. Mr. Roby adds, "And blended in with the deleveraging done during 2012 will be a considerable improvement in our net interest income and margins for 2013 as the Company has retired significant amounts of high cost deposits and FHLB borrowings during 2012 which were paid off from lower yielding cash and investments."

Non-interest income was relatively stable for the past two quarters and the full year 2012 was consistent with 2011. Non-interest expense for the past two quarters was also consistent, however for 2012 non-interest expense at $8.7 million was $196,000, or 2.2% lower than in 2011 which relates to a reduction in problem asset related expenses.

For 2012 the Company recognized $51,000 in realized gains on securities that were liquidated as part the Bank's deleveraging strategy while for 2011 security gains were $603,000. The 2012 OREO liquidations and revaluation adjustments netted to a $19,000 loss for the year showing some stabilization within the real estate markets when compared to 2011 and the net losses were $188,000.

Equity and Capital

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company converted over $1.9 million of its $3.0 million subordinated 8.50% convertible notes, along with their fourth quarter interest into 496,596 of common shares at $4.00 per share. The dilution from this transaction was approximately $0.26 per share but reduces leverage, reduces cash flow requirements, and saves over $165,000 in interest expense annually at the holding company.

Capital ratios at the Bank continue to grow through a combination of retained earnings and deleveraging. The Bank's leverage ratio was 8.79% as of December 31, 2012 compared to 7.63% as of December 31, 2011 while its tier one and total risk-based capital ratios were 10.90% and 12.16% as of December 31, 2012 compared to 10.16% and 11.42% at December 31, 2011 respectively. The Bank's capital ratios continue to exceed those required to be considered "well-capitalized" according to the standard regulatory guidelines.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
