Patriot National Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PNBK) (“Patriot”), the parent of Patriot National Bank (the “Bank”), today reported it earned $345,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012 compared to a net loss of $7.2 million, or $0.19 loss per share, in the second quarter a year ago. Second quarter 2011 results included $3.0 million of restructuring charges associated with management’s turnaround plan.
“Posting our fourth consecutive quarter of profitability highlights the success of our turnaround plan and management’s effectiveness in executing,” said Michael Carrazza, Chairman of the Board. “With health and stability restored, our mandate is to significantly increase core earnings in the face of a challenging and low rate market environment. We’ve set in motion a series of tailored restructuring initiatives in the third quarter aimed at elevating core earnings to our target run rate level by year end.” In the first six months of 2012, Patriot earned $891,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $16.2 million, or $0.42 loss per share, in the first six months of 2011.
- Patriot earned $345,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 compared to a net loss of $7.2 million, or $0.19 loss per share, in the second quarter a year ago. Included in the year-earlier loss was $3.0 million of restructuring charges.
- The net interest margin was 2.81% for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to 3.16% for the second quarter a year ago. For the six months ended June 30, 2012 the net interest margin was 3.03% compared to 3.00% for the six months ended June 30, 2011.
- Non-accrual loans were $17.5 million at June 30, 2012, or 3.6 % of total loans as compared to $26.7 million, or 5.8% of total loans at June 30, 2011.
- Non-performing assets, which consist of non-accrual loans and OREO, were $19.0 million, or 2.9% of total assets at June 30, 2012 compared to $30.3 million, or 4.7% of total assets a year ago.
- Non-interest operating expenses were 45.8% lower in the current quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago resulting primarily from lower salaries and benefits, occupancy, restructuring and OREO expenses.
- Total Capital to Risk Weighted Assets was 15.9% for Patriot and 15.4% for the Bank at June 30, 2012.
“Improving our risk profile and aggressively managing our troubled assets has been, and will remain, a priority focus for our management team,” said Christopher Maher, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As a result of this focus, credit costs continued to decline and were significantly below those of a year ago. In addition to asset quality improvements, we continue to focus on increasing revenue and decreasing operating expenses to improve earnings.
“Total non-accrual loans decreased more than 34% to $17.5 million, or 3.6% of gross loans, at June 30, 2012 compared to $26.7 million, or 5.8 % of gross loans at June 30, 2011,” Mr. Maher added.
Other real estate owned (OREO) was $1.5 million at June 30, 2012 compared to $3.6 million at June 30, 2011. Only two properties remain in OREO. Non-performing assets, which consist of non-accrual loans and OREO, totaled $19.0 million, or 2.9% of total assets, at June 30, 2012, compared to $30.3 million, or 4.7% of total assets, a year ago.
“The continued improved credit quality of the loan portfolio and favorable recent loss history as it relates to our assessment of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses resulted in a $1.7 million release from the loan loss reserve during the quarter,” Mr. Maher said. In the second quarter a year ago Patriot recorded a $1.5 million provision. The allowance for loan losses totaled $6.7 million, or 1.36% of gross loans, at June 30, 2012 compared to $11.4 million, or 2.46% of gross loans a year ago.
Balance Sheet Review
Total assets of $644.3 million at June 30, 2012 were relatively flat compared to $648.2 million at June 30, 2011. Net loans increased to $483.9 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $452.0 million a year ago. At quarter end the loan pipeline totaled $108.2 million, up from $83.5 million at June 30, 2011, which reflects an increasing focus on new loan production, which is targeted to deploy excess liquidity and build fee income.
Total deposits were $522.1 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $524.5 million at June 30 of the prior year. Interest bearing deposits decreased $12.5 million but non-interest bearing deposits increased $10.1 million, or 16.4%, from $61.6 million at June 30, 2011 to $71.7 million at June 30, 2012. This increase reflects Patriot’s planned strategy to reduce higher cost deposits with core transaction accounts.
Income Statement Review
Patriot’s second quarter net interest income was $4.4 million, compared to $5.0 million in the second quarter a year ago. Interest income decreased 12.0% compared to the second quarter a year ago as a result of the lower interest rate environment, excess liquidity due to the loan sale in the first quarter of 2012 and the overall loan mix. Interest expense decreased 9.3% compared to the second quarter a year ago due to the reduction in interest bearing deposits and the increase in non-interest bearing deposits. In the first six months of 2012, net interest income was $9.5 million compared to $10.0 million in the first six months of 2011, primarily as the result of the overall lower rate environment and the balance sheet mix.
The net interest margin in the second quarter of 2012 was 2.81%, compared to 3.16% in the second quarter a year ago, due to a high level of balance sheet liquidity resulting from the first quarter loan sale and overall lower rates. In the first six months of the year the net interest margin was 3.03% compared to 3.00% in the first six months of 2011.
Second quarter non-interest income was $455,000 compared to $710,000 for the second quarter of 2011. Second quarter 2011 non-interest income included $111,000 in interest received from federal tax refunds and $80,000 from the gain on sale of loans. In the first six months of the year, non-interest income was $1.2 million compared to $1.3 million in the same period a year ago.
Non-interest expenses declined 45.8% to $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $11.4 million in the second quarter a year ago. Second quarter 2011 non-interest expenses included $3.0 million of restructuring charges associated with management’s turnaround plan. Excluding these charges, non-interest expense in the second quarter of 2011 would have been approximately $8.4 million, or 35% higher than the current quarter’s expense level. Year-to-date, non-interest expenses decreased 34.5% to $12.4 million compared to $19.0 million in the same period a year earlier.
“In the first quarter of 2012 we implemented staff reductions and during the second quarter we closed our West End branch. Three additional branches were designated for closure in the second quarter, which will be effective by September 30, 2012. These events will significantly reduce expenses by year end,” said Mr. Maher. Salary and employee benefits were down $464,000, or 14.5%, and occupancy and equipment expenses were down $157,000, or 12.1%, compared to the second quarter a year ago. In addition, OREO expenses were $758,000 lower due to reduced operating costs relating to fewer properties being managed.
