Highlight of Business Operations:
The Company s total assets at September 30, 2009, were $2.2 billion, an increase of 7%, or $149.5 million from year-end 2008. Investments grew $121.4 million, or 52%, reflecting the Company s leveraging strategy to offset the earnings dilution resulting from participation in the Capital Purchase Program. Loans held for sale increased $16.4 million, or 45%, due to refinancing of residential mortgages. Gross loans held for investment totaled $1.6 billion at September 30, 2009, essentially flat from the prior year end.
Total deposits grew $207.0 million, to $1.7 billion in 2009, representing an 14% increase due primarily to increased consumer use of deposit account products in the current economic environment and an increase in the general consumer rate of savings. Borrowings decreased $31.6 million or 9%, during the first nine months of 2009, compared to the period ended December 31, 2008. Total shareholders equity decreased $19.3 million from the December 31, 2008 level, primarily as a result of $52.4 million goodwill impairment charge.
The Company experienced a net loss of $75.7 million in the first nine months of 2009 compared to net income of $0.8 million for the same period in 2008 and is primarily the result of a $24.8 million increase in the provision for loan losses and a $52.4 million goodwill impairment charge. These losses were partially offset by a net income tax benefit of $6.8 million. The Bank established a $6.0 million valuation reserve on deferred tax asset in the third quarter 2009. FDIC insurance expense increased $2.7 million over the prior year as a result of a FDIC special assessment imposed as part of the Deposit Insurance Fund restoration plan and increase in the Bank s deposit base.
Noninterest income increased 3% to $16.1 million for the first nine months in 2009, compared to $15.7 million for the same period in 2008. Income from mortgage loan income increased by $4.7 million attributable to sizable increases in 2009 production driven by refinancing activity. These increases were partially offset by a $5.0 million OTTI charge on an investment security owned by the Bank that the Bank deemed would be unlikely to recover its investments. Excluding the OTTI charge, noninterest income increased $5.4 million or 34%.
Noninterest expense for year-to-date 2009 was $51.1 million, excluding the 2009 goodwill impairment charge of $52.4 million, compared to $46.5 million in 2008, which also excludes a 2008 goodwill impairment charge of $1.8 million. This 10% growth can be attributed to a $2.7 million FDIC insurance expense increase over the prior year as a result of a FDIC special assessment imposed as part of the Deposit Insurance Fund restoration plan and because of the increase in the Bank s deposit base. Also, personnel expense decreased $1.4 million due to a downsizing of staff
