Cape Bancorp, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Annual 2012 Results

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- Cape Bancorp, Inc. ("Cape Bancorp" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CBNJ), the parent company of Cape Bank, announces its operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2012, Cape Bancorp reported net income of $1.0 million, or $.08 per common and fully diluted share, and $5.1 million, or $.41 per common and fully diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2012. This compares to a net loss of $2.0 million, or $.16 per common and fully diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011, and net income of $8.0 million, or $.64 per common and fully diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2011. Included in the full year operating results for 2011 were tax benefits totaling $12.2 million representing the reversal of a portion of the deferred tax valuation allowance.

On November 28, 2012, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.05 per common share to shareholders of record as of the close of business December 12, 2012. The dividend was paid on December 26, 2012.

Michael D. Devlin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cape Bancorp and Cape Bank, provided the following statement:

"In 2012, Cape Bank was able to make advancements in several key areas. Both earnings and tangible capital grew on improving performance. Balance sheet restructuring improved NIM through a recasting of FHLB advances. Most importantly, management continued to reduce troubled credits ending the year with non-performing loans at 2.51% of total gross loans -- down from 3.77% the previous year. The Adversely Classified Assets ratio dropped to 30%, the best showing in three years.

"Both the performance and the capital levels provided the confidence to reconsider the Bank's capital plans. As a result, the Board acknowledged the patience of our shareholders by declaring a $0.05 dividend. With the tangible equity to tangible assets ratio ending the year at 12.62%, the Board feels that additional strategies should be reviewed in 2013."

The following are significant factors which contributed to the operating results of the comparative quarters and year-to-date:

  • The net interest margin was 3.77% for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 28 basis points from the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Average interest-earning assets declined $28.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to the 2011 period while interest-bearing liabilities declined $45.8 million during the same period. The yield on interest-earning assets declined 18 basis points to 4.45% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 4.63% for the same quarter a year ago, while the cost of interest-bearing liabilities declined 51 basis points to 0.80% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 1.31% for the 2011 three month period. For the year ended December 31, 2012, the net interest margin was 3.75%, an increase of 15 basis points over the 3.60% for the year ended December 31, 2011. Average interest-earning assets declined $23.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to the 2011 period while interest-bearing liabilities declined $33.6 million during the same period. The yield on interest-earning assets declined 17 basis points to 4.62% for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to 4.79% for the year ended December 31, 2011, while the cost of interest-bearing liabilities declined 36 basis points to 1.01% for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to 1.37% for the same period last year. Both the three and twelve month periods of 2012 benefited from the previously disclosed debt extinguishment in the second quarter of 2012, and the further restructuring of debt in the third quarter of 2012.

  • The loan loss provision for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $1.1 million compared to $4.5 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Included in the $19.6 million loan loss provision in the prior year was $5.5 million related to the transfer of loans to the loans held for sale account. These loans were written-down to their estimated fair market value on the date of transfer. Loan charge-offs for the year ended December 31, 2012 were significantly lower and totaled $6.4 million compared to loan charge-offs and write-downs of $19.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

  • The year ended December 31, 2012 included the recognition of a deferred gain related to the sale of bank premises of $425,000 compared to the initial $1.8 million gain recorded in the second quarter of 2011. The additional gain of $425,000 resulted from vacating leased space in the second quarter of 2012, which accelerated the recognition of a portion of the deferred gain.

  • The year ended December 31, 2012 included an other-than-temporary-impairment (OTTI) charge of $8,000 compared to an OTTI charge of $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

  • Loan related expenses (real estate taxes, insurance, legal and other) totaled $574,000 for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to $729,000 for the same period in 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, loan related expenses totaled $2.1 million compared to $2.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

  • Other Real Estate Owned (OREO) expenses were $497,000 for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to $1.4 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011. Included in these expenses were write-downs totaling $266,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Total net loans decreased $1.1 million to $715.2 million at December 31, 2012, from $716.3 million at December 31, 2011. An increase in commercial loans was more than offset by decreases in mortgage and consumer loans. Mortgage loans decreased $16.5 million as a result of early pay-offs and the Bank selling approximately 54% of originations made during the year in an effort to manage interest rate risk. An increase in commercial loan activity within our market resulted in growth of $14.5 million. Consumer loans declined $1.7 million. The allowance for loan losses totaled $10.1 million, or 1.40% of gross loans and 55.53% of non-performing loans at December 31, 2012.

Other real estate owned (OREO) decreased $1.1 million from $8.3 million at December 31, 2011 to $7.2 million at December 31, 2012, and consisted at December 31, 2012 of thirteen commercial properties and thirty-five residential properties (including twenty-seven building lots). During the quarter ended December 31, 2012, the Company added two commercial properties and four residential properties to OREO with aggregate carrying values of $304,000 and $458,000, respectively. Three commercial OREO properties and four residential OREO properties with aggregate carrying values totaling $868,000 were sold during the quarter ended December 31, 2012 with recognized net losses of $3,000. For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company sold thirteen residential OREO properties and fourteen commercial OREO properties with aggregate carrying values totaling $10.2 million with recognized net losses totaling $260,000. Currently, the Company has agreements of sale for eleven OREO properties with an aggregate carrying value totaling $3.1 million, all of which are expected to close in the first quarter 2013.

At December 31, 2012, Cape Bancorp's core deposits totaled $542.4 million which represented an increase of $61.9 million from the December 31, 2011 level of $480.5 million.

At December 31, 2012, deposits totaled $784.6 million compared to $774.4 million at December 31, 2011, an increase of $10.2 million.

Cape Bancorp's total equity increased to $151.4 million at December 31, 2012 from $145.7 million at December 31, 2011, an increase of $5.7 million, or 3.88%. Tangible equity to tangible assets increased to 12.62% at December 31, 2012 compared to 11.72% at December 31, 2011. Cape Bank's regulatory capital ratios for Tier I Leverage Ratio, Tier I Risk-Based Capital and Total Risk-Based Capital are 10.43%, 14.20% and 15.46%, respectively, all of which exceed well capitalized status.
