Crescent Financial Corp. (CRFN) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2012-09-30. Crescent Financial Bancshares Inc has a market cap of $119.2 million; its shares were traded at around $4.22 with and P/S ratio of 2.3.



Highlight of Business Operations:

Total assets equaled $793.8 million at September 30, 2012, a decrease of $42.5 million, or 5.1 percent, from total assets of $836.3 million at December 31, 2011. Earning assets totaled $687.8 million, or 86.7 percent of total assets, at September 30, 2012 compared to $723.9 million, or 86.6 percent of total assets, at December 31, 2011. Earning assets at September 30, 2012 consisted of $540.9 million in gross loans held for investment, $134.2 million in investment securities and Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) stock, $5.6 million in federal funds sold and interest-earning deposits with correspondent banks and $7.0 million in mortgage loans held for sale. Earning assets at December 31, 2011 consisted of $551.4 million in gross loans held for investment, $152.2 million in investment securities and FHLB stock, $16.5 million in federal funds sold and interest-earning deposits and $3.8 million in mortgage loans held for sale. Total deposits and stockholders equity at September 30, 2012 were $633.9 million and $142.8 million, respectively, compared to $693.2 million and $143.1 million, respectively, at December 31, 2011.

Gross loans held for investment, net of deferred loan fees, totaled $540.9 million at September 30, 2012 reflecting a $10.4 million, or 1.9 percent, decrease compared to $551.4 million at December 31, 2011. This decline resulted from a combination of principal payments in the normal course of business, problem asset resolutions, which include loan sales, and a change in the Company s business model which has shifted the loan portfolio mix to favor business and consumer lending over construction and speculative land loans. Most of the loan categories experienced a balance reduction in the first nine months of 2012, except for commercial loans and, to a lesser extent, residential real estate loans which reflects the Company s lending strategy and new focus. The changes in the portfolio, by category, were as follows: construction and land development loans, $25.3 million decline, or 30.2 percent; commercial real estate loans, $3.6 million decline, or 1.2 percent; residential 1-4 family mortgage loans, $7.8 million increase, or 11.6 percent; commercial and industrial loans, $17.5 million increase, or 44.5 percent; home equity loans and lines of credit, $8.1 million decline, or 16.5 percent; and consumer loans, $216 thousand increase, or 6.5 percent.

Total non-interest earning assets decreased from $112.4 million at December 31, 2011 to $106.0 million at September 30, 2012. Cash and due from banks, premises and equipment, bank owned life insurance, and other assets increased by $405 thousand, $398 thousand, $539 thousand, and $249 thousand, respectively. Foreclosed assets declined by $5.2 million as the Company has continued to focus on reducing problem assets through a variety of resolution strategies.

Average earning assets totaled $704.6 million in the first nine months of 2012, which was a decline from $892.3 million in the first nine months of 2011. The decline in average earning assets was due to balance sheet restructuring late in 2011, purchase accounting fair value adjustments, continued resolution of problem assets, and a change in the Company s business model which has shifted the loan portfolio mix away from construction and speculative land loans toward commercial loans for operating businesses. This decline was comprised of a $117.9 million decrease in the average balance of loans outstanding, a $55.3 million decrease in the average balance of the securities portfolio and a $14.5 million decrease in the average balances of federal funds sold and other interest-earning cash.

Total stockholders equity decreased by $215 thousand, from $143.1 million at December 31, 2011 to $142.8 million at September 30, 2012. This decrease was partially due to a $2.1 million decrease in retained earnings, which resulted from net income less dividends and accretion on preferred stock in the first nine months of 2012, and was partially offset by a $1.7 million increase in accumulated comprehensive income from higher net unrealized gains on the available for sale securities portfolio.
