Camco Financial Corp. Reports Operating Results (10-Q)

Camco Financial Corp. (CAFI) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2011-03-31. Camco Financial Corp. has a market cap of $13.69 million; its shares were traded at around $1.9 with and P/S ratio of 0.28.

Highlight of Business Operations:

In the first quarter of 2011 the Corporation took steps to improve capital ratios through the reduction of assets and borrowings. Assets were reduced through the sale of $27.2 million in investments that created a gain of $1.2 million. The Bank used the proceeds of the sale to pay $21.0 million in FHLB borrowings including a prepayment penalty of $216,000.

As of March 31, 2011 securities totaled $17.2 million, a decrease of $17.5 million, or 50.4%, from December 31, 2010, due to sale of $25.9 million, principal repayments and maturities of $2.6 million and the change in the fair value of securities available for sale of $1.1 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2011. These were offset partially by purchases of $12.6 million which were primarily investment securities at a weighted rate of 1.28%. Additionally, $20.0 million of FHLB stock was redeemed during the first quarter 2011.

Loans receivable, including loans held for sale, totaled $649.3 million at March 31, 2011, a decrease of $20.7 million, or 3.1%, from December 31, 2010. The decrease resulted primarily from principal repayments of $44.7 million and loan sales of $21.3 million offset partially by loan disbursements totaling $47.6 million. The volume of loans originated for sale in the secondary market during the first three months of 2011 decreased compared to the first quarter of 2010 by $35.9 million, or 43.0%. While prepayments have remained stable on residential mortgage loans, our ability to originate new residential mortgage loans has not been as strong as 2010. The reduction in residential real estate loan balances was intensified by the secondary market offering historically low long-term fixed rates during most of 2010. Additionally the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 expanded the first-time homebuyer credit which resulted in higher loan activity during that time period.

The allowance for loan losses totaled $17.3 million and $16.9 million at March 31, 2011, and December 31, 2010, representing 53.7% and 49.9% of nonperforming loans, respectively, at those dates. Nonperforming loans (loans with three payments or more delinquent plus nonaccrual loans) totaled $32.3 million and $33.8 million at March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively, constituting 4.8% and 4.9% of total net loans during both periods, including loans held for sale, at those dates. First quarter 2011 provision for loan losses was impacted by continued specific reserves primarily due to three credits related to the decrease in values on the impaired loans. Net charge-offs totaled $539,000 for the first quarter of 2011.

Advances from the FHLB and other borrowings totaled $68.8 million at March 31, 2011, a decrease of $24.1 million, or 25.9%, from the total at December 31, 2010. The decrease in borrowings was primarily due to early payoff of $21.0 million of borrowings that had a prepayment penalty of $216,000. The sale of investments provided the cash to pay off such borrowings and decrease reliance on this non core funding.

Camco’s net earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2011, totaled $652,000, an increase of $523,000, from the net earnings of $129,000 reported in the comparable 2010 period. On a per share basis, the net earnings during the first quarter of 2011 were $0.09, compared to $0.02 per share in the first quarter of 2010. The increase in earnings was primarily attributable to increased other income related to the gain on sale of investments, coupled with increased net interest income of $354,000 which was partially offset by increased general, administrative and other expenses of $485,000 and increased federal income taxes related to the sale of investments.
