Xenith Bankshares, Inc. Reports Improved Financial Performance in 2012: Net Income $7.38 Million in 2012 Compared to $4.45 Million in 2011

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 7:28 PM


RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xenith Bankshares, Inc. (Nasdaq:XBKS), parent company of Xenith Bank, a business-focused bank serving the Greater Washington, D.C., and Richmond and Greater Hampton Roads, Virginia markets, today announced financial results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2012. Net income was $7.38 million, or $0.70 per common share, for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $4.45 million, or $0.48 per common share, for the year ended December 31, 2011. Net income in 2012 included a $4.95 million, or $0.47 per common share, income tax benefit due to the reversal of the valuation allowance on the company's net deferred tax asset. In 2011, net income included a pre-tax bargain purchase gain of $8.66 million resulting from the acquisition of Virginia Business Bank.

The company reported fourth quarter 2012 net income of $332,000, or $0.03 per common share, compared to fourth quarter 2011 net income of $215,000, or $0.02 per common share. Fourth quarter 2012 net income includes $380,000 of income tax expense, with income tax expense of $17,000 reported in the 2011 period.

  • Net interest income, after provision for loan and lease losses, was $20.21 million in 2012 compared to $12.24 million in 2011, reflecting organic loan growth and reduced loan loss provision.

T. Gaylon Layfield, III, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are pleased with our progress during 2012 expanding Xenith's franchise and growing our reach, scope and services. Our relationships with business customers throughout our target markets are growing, as evidenced by loan and deposit growth. In 2012, we completed integrating two acquisitions executed in 2011 and made process enhancements to strengthen risk management oversight and efficiency. We had excellent customer retention rates from our acquisitions and made significant progress toward resolving the classified and criticized loans primarily acquired in our acquisition of Virginia Business Bank. Our growth in loans and deposits contributed to an increase in shareholders' equity to $87.55 million at December 31, 2012 compared to $80.30 million at December 31, 2011. With nonperforming assets falling to 0.95% of total assets, we are focused on delivering prudent growth coupled with leveraging our infrastructure, while maintaining strong asset quality.  We continue to evaluate strategic opportunities."

Operating Results

Interest income for 2012 was $25.98 million, up 38%, from $18.89 million in 2011, reflecting an increase of $160.20 million, or 48%, in average interest-earning assets over 2011. Interest expense for 2012 was $3.95 million, an increase of approximately $1.30 million over 2011, reflecting significant core deposit growth and the expiration of purchase accounting adjustments that lowered interest expense in 2011 by $1.05 million. Noninterest bearing deposits increased $27.05 million over year-end 2011, and interest-bearing deposits increased approximately $51.17 million for the year ended 2012 compared to the year ended 2011. Net interest income was $22.03 million for the year ended 2012, compared to $16.25 million for the year ended 2011, an increase of 36%.  Average interest-earning assets as a percentage of total assets were 94.9% and 92.5%, respectively, for the years ended 2012 and 2011.

"Growing Xenith's loan portfolio generated increased interest income and, we believe, demonstrated our ability to win and retain valuable relationships in a competitive environment," explained Layfield. "While increased deposits resulted in higher year-over-year interest expense, a significant portion of the growth in deposits came from core noninterest bearing deposit accounts and other core interest-bearing deposit accounts. Ongoing progress in building and diversifying our deposit portfolio is helping support our loan growth."

Beginning in March 2012, the bank began participating in a mortgage warehouse lending program with a larger commercial bank in its nationwide program of investing in residential mortgages for sale in the secondary market. The company classifies these loans as held for sale.  "We view our participation in this program as an opportunity to contribute to our earnings; although, it is not a growing area of emphasis," explained Layfield. "We believe the economics of this program provide us with solid risk-adjusted returns. We continue to monitor this program as interest rates and other business factors evolve."

Net interest margin in 2012 was 4.47% compared to 4.88% in 2011, a decrease of 41 basis points. For the years ended 2012 and 2011, acquisition accounting adjustments include loan discount accretion (interest income) of $3.34 million and $3.57 million, respectively, and a reduction in interest expense of $1.05 million in 2011 with no reduction in 2012. Excluding the effect of these acquisition accounting adjustments, net interest margin for 2012 was 3.79%, an increase of 30 basis points from 3.49% in 2011. Layfield noted: "We worked diligently in 2012 to manage interest expense and we continue to analyze our funding mix and cost in this protracted low-rate environment. In light of the Federal Reserve's stated policy to keep interest rates at historically low levels for a prolonged period and intense market competition, we expect our net interest margin to be under pressure."

Noninterest expenses in 2012 were $18.14 million compared to $16.71 million in 2011, an increase of 9%. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to higher compensation and benefits expenses, including hiring relationship managers and support personnel related to the acquisition of Paragon Commercial Bank's Richmond branch in the third quarter of 2011.

Net interest income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $5.56 million compared to $5.79 million for the 2011 period, primarily due to lower accretion in the 2012 period. The provision for loan and lease losses in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $436,000 compared to $905,000 in the fourth quarter of 2011, which was also impacted by higher accretion in the 2011 period. Noninterest expenses in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $4.56 million compared to $4.87 million in the same period of 2011. Income tax expense of $380,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012 included the effect of nondeductible expenses related to incentive stock options.

"We have invested and plan to invest in people who provide revenue generating capability," explained Layfield. "We think it's imperative to invest to build long-term value, recognizing that it may negatively impact earnings in the short run. We plan to add individuals to support growth in our most promising markets and business segments. For example, Northern Virginia offers strong lending opportunities as we look to grow our government contractor lending business. In 2012, we also invested in enterprise risk management systems and processes to ensure our risk management activities and governance match the demands of a growing financial institution. We also launched a suite of electronic treasury management and ACH products we expect will enable us to expand business banking relationships and generate fee income that will contribute to net income growth."

Balance Sheet and Asset Quality

The company grew total assets to $563.21 million at December 31, 2012, up 18%, compared to $477.47 million at year-end 2011. Total deposits were $453.23 million at December 31, 2012 compared to $375.01 million at year-end 2011.  Loans held for investment at December 31, 2012 were $379.01 million compared to $321.86 million at year-end 2011, whereas loans held for sale were $80.9 million at December 31, 2012 with no amounts outstanding at year-end 2011.

"We continue to pursue our strategy of building a diverse portfolio of commercial loans in a variety of industries," explained Layfield. "Unlike many banks that are heavily reliant on real estate lending, we finished the year with 53% commercial and industrial loans and 39% commercial real estate loans, with the balance of the portfolio consisting of residential and consumer loans. We have a strategy of having an asset-sensitive balance sheet and the majority of Xenith's loans and deposits are variable rate, which we believe positions us best in a rising interest rate environment."

Layfield added that as a result of a clear focus on working out of the classified and criticized loans primarily acquired in the acquisition of Virginia Business Bank, Xenith's nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets declined to 0.95% at year-end 2012 compared to 1.40% at year-end 2011. The company's provision for loan and lease losses was $1.82 million in 2012 compared to $4.01 million in 2011. The bank does not provide for loans held for sale as any decline in their value would be a direct charge to income. The bank had no charges against loans held for sale in 2012.

The bank's allowance for loan and lease losses to nonaccrual loans was 96.16% at December 31, 2012 compared to 73.01% at year-end 2011. The bank's allowance for loan and lease losses was 1.27% of total loans held for investment at year-end 2012 compared to 1.31% at year-end 2011.

Layfield concluded: "We have the capital strength to pursue lending opportunities in our key markets, invest in the best people, and consider strategic opportunities. The Greater Washington, D.C. area economy in particular offers great opportunity for Xenith. It is one of the strongest economies in the country, and we have considerable experience in lending to government contractors and other small to medium sized businesses. We have resolved many of our nonperforming and under-performing purchased loans, and while our focus on further improvement continues undaunted, we believe our capital strength, solid asset quality ratios, and stable loan and deposit portfolios position us to concentrate our attention on growth throughout 2013 and beyond. Our paramount focus is on increasing shareholder value in a prudent manner, and we intend to continue executing with that focus top of mind."

Allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) plus discounts on acquired loans as a percentage of total loans held for investment and tangible book value per share are supplemental financial measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. GAAP. Management believes that ALLL plus discounts on acquired loans held for investment is meaningful because it is one of the measures we use to assess our asset quality. Management believes that tangible book value per common share is meaningful because it is one of the measures we use to assess capital adequacy. Set forth above are reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP. Book value is the same as shareholders' equity presented on our consolidated balance sheets. Our calculations of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
