Highlight of Business Operations:
Net earnings for 2010 were $42.3 million, which is an increase of $8.0 million, or 23 percent, over the prior year. Diluted earnings per share of $0.61 is an increase of 9 percent from the $0.56 earned in 2009. Included in net earnings for 2010 are $1.2 million ($2.0 million pre-tax) in one-time gains on the sale of a merchant card servicing portfolios. Included in net earnings for 2009 is a $3.5 million one-time bargain purchase gain from the acquisition of First National and a $1.5 million ($2.5 million pre-tax) expense in a FDIC special assessment charge.
The primary reason for the increase in net earnings was a reduction in the provision for loan losses of $39.9 million, which was partially offset by the increase in the other real estate owned expense of $13.1 million. In addition, there was increased pressure on the net interest margin which resulted in a decrease of $10.6 million in net interest income. The net interest margin as a percentage of earning assets, on a tax-equivalent basis, was 4.21 percent, a decrease of 61 basis points from the 4.82 percent for 2009.
The Companys loan portfolio decreased from the prior year as a result of slowing loan demand, net charged-off loans, and repossession of foreclosed assets. Gross outstanding loans, including loans held for sale, decreased by $305 million, or 7 percent, from the prior year end. The credit quality of the loan portfolio stabilized at a historically high level of $271 million in non-performing assets. The slight increase in non-performing assets of $9.4 million, or 4 percent, from the prior year was primarily the result of an increase in the other real estate owned category. The early stage delinquencies (accruing loans 30-89 days past due) have decreased from $87.5 million in the prior year end to $45.5 million at the end of 2010.
Deposit growth in 2010 has been beneficial for the Company and reduced the reliance upon other borrowings. Non-interest bearing deposits increased $45 million, or 6 percent, during the year. Interest bearing deposits increased by $376 million, or 11 percent, from prior year. FHLB advances increased $175 million during the year, while FRB borrowings decreased $225 million. Repurchase agreements and other borrowed funds increased $43 million from the prior year.
The Company had a successful equity offering in March 2010 which generated $146 million in net proceeds and 10.291 million in common equity shares. Stockholders equity increased $152 million, or 22 percent, during the year and the Company and each of the bank subsidiaries have remained above the well capitalized levels required by regulators.
