Central Virginia Bankshares (CVBK) Reports Solid Core Earnings in Second Quarter

POWHATAN, Va., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Central Virginia Bankshares, Inc. (Nasdaq:CVBKNews) and Central Virginia Bank announce continuing solid “core earnings” in the second quarter 2010. Core earnings for the second quarter were $467.2 thousand, and for the year to date are $1.30 million. Core earnings represent a non-GAAP measure defined as GAAP pre-tax net income excluding loan loss and OREO expense, impairment charges, and securities gains and losses. It indicates that the basic or core earning capacity of the bank is producing positive revenue.

The Company’s financial performance reported for the second quarter 2010 was a net loss of $1.11 million, and after effective dividends of $160.6 thousand on preferred stock, resulting in a net loss available to common shareholders of $1.27 million or $(0.48) per basic and diluted share, compared to the second quarter of 2009’s loss of $96.4 thousand and after effective dividends of $160.6 thousand on preferred stock, a net loss available to common shareholders of $255.9 thousand or $(0.10) per basic and diluted share.

“We continued our efforts to maintain an adequate reserve for potential future loan losses by increasing our reserve by over $2.9 million during the second quarter, which obviously had a negative impact on our earnings. However, we are very pleased that our core earnings as well as our deposit base continue to show strength,” commented Herb Marth, Chief Operating Officer of Central Virginia Bank. He added, “We’re here to serve our customers, and every day we’re making loans and opening new deposit accounts. We fully intend to emerge from this, the most severe recession since the great depression, a stronger, more efficient, and even more customer oriented financial institution.”

At the end of the second quarter, the Bank’s tier 1 risk-based capital ratio and leverage ratio continue to be above the well capitalized minimum levels while the total risk based capital position remains above the minimum adequately capitalized level at quarter end. The Bank has recently completed a follow up regulatory examination and is well on its way towards satisfying many of the regulatory requirements. The company has also filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission a preliminary Form S-1 for registration of new common stock.

Chief Operating Officer, Herb Marth added:  “We are pleased with our Company’s performance, despite the reported loss for the second quarter, as we believe we are getting closer to having the worst behind us. We continue to experience growth in core deposits. Overall, we feel very positive about our future.”

Jim Napier, Chairman of the Board, added “We have a strong and solid franchise with extremely loyal customers. Our mission continues to be serving the needs of our customers; rewarding our shareholders; developing and supporting our employees; and giving back to the communities where we live and work. Customers of Central Virginia Bank can feel confident maintaining their relationship with the Bank. Our entire team is committed to successfully overcoming the challenges that lie ahead and emerging a stronger organization.”

Additional Financial Discussion

Average loan balances for the Bank declined by $13.7 million to $284.9 million, a decrease of 4.6 percent from the prior year’s comparable quarter. The investment securities portfolio averaged $124.4 million, a decrease of $42.4 million or 25.4 percent from $166.8 million in second quarter 2009. Total assets averaged $459.2 million, having declined by $40.6 million or 8.1 percent from $499.7 million in the prior year.

Total deposits averaged $375.7 million, an increase of $2.3 million from the second quarter 2009. Total borrowings averaged $53.6 million a decrease of $41.3 million or 43.5 percent from the prior year’s second quarter. The decline of $41.3 million in average total borrowings from $95.0 million to $53.6 million at quarter end reflects the Bank management’s strategy of reducing leverage of the balance sheet and improving liquidity by facilitating shrinkage of the investment portfolio.

The fully tax equivalent net interest income in the second quarter 2010 was $3.2 million. The continued low interest rate environment has helped the Bank’s net interest margin in the second quarter 2010, resulting in a net interest margin of 3.06 an increase from the preceding first quarter’s 2.90 percent and from the comparable quarter of 2009’s 2.93 percent. Total interest income for the quarter was $5.4 million while total interest expense was $2.3 million. Interest income of $5.4 million was lower by 17.5 percent from a year earlier due to lower volume of investment securities and the drag from non-performing assets. On the expense side, however, the Bank’s interest expense of $2.3 million also declined by 29.1 percent from the prior year’s second quarter due primarily to lower interest rates on deposits.

Non-interest income of $1.3 million was a decrease of 7.9 percent or $109.86 thousand from the prior year’s second quarter total of $1.4 million. The decrease was due primarily to:

  • a decline in the Bank’s realized gains on the sale of securities available for sale,
  • lower secondary market mortgage loan fees, and
  • lower deposit fees and charges, partially offset by increasing bank card fees.

Total non-interest expense for the second quarter 2010 was $3.67 million a decrease of 15.2 percent or $805 thousand as compared to $4.33 million last year. Second quarter non-interest expense included:

  • salaries and benefits totaled $1.51 million in the second quarter, a decrease of $148 thousand.
  • loss on devaluation of other real estate owned (“OREO”)  of $146 thousand compared to zero last year.
  • other than temporary impairment (“OTTI”) charges on the CDO debt securities in our investment portfolio of $11 thousand, a decrease of $1.04 million from last year.

The Bank remains committed to reducing all controllable or discretionary expenses as well as focusing on increasing non-interest income. Reducing growth in expenses will improve current and benefit future periods and is consistent with the goal of improving the efficiency ratio. This is evidenced by the improvement in this measure to 81.67 percent from 88.31 percent in the second quarter of the prior year.

Non-performing assets at the end of the second quarter increased modestly to $32.5 million compared to $31.2 million at the end of the preceding first quarter of 2010 and $15.4 million in the second quarter of the prior year. The directional growth in non-performing assets has declined for the second quarter in a row as the increase from March 31, 2010 was only 4.3 percent.
