EVANSVILLE, Ind., Nov. 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra Bank Corporation (Nasdaq:IBNK), the parent company of Integra Bank N.A. ("Integra Bank"), today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2010.

The net loss available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2010 was $17.3 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $10.2 million, or $0.49 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2010. The provision for loan losses was $26.2 million, up $6.9 million from $19.3 million during the second quarter of 2010, while net charge-offs totaled $26.9 million, or 6.43% of total loans on an annualized basis, a $14.7 million increase from $12.2 million, or 2.49% of total loans annualized for the second quarter of 2010. Non-performing assets declined $17.5 million, or 6.6% from June 30, 2010 and were $247.6 million.   

The net interest margin was 2.08% for the third quarter of 2010, compared with 2.32% for the second quarter of 2010, while net interest income declined $2.5 million to $11.5 million. Non-interest income for the third quarter of 2010 was $27.4 million, an increase of $8.9 million from the second quarter of 2010 and included $11.2 million of premiums on sales of deposits realized from third quarter branch sales, after consideration of a write-off of $3.0 million of core deposit intangible assets, as well as a gain on the sale of divested loans of $9.5 million. Non-interest expense for the third quarter 2010 was $28.8 million, an increase of $6.3 million from the second quarter of 2010, and included increases in professional fees related to branch sales and loan and other real estate owned costs.

During the third quarter, Integra Bank completed the sale of twelve banking centers, along with groups of commercial loans, in three transactions with First Security Bank, FNB Bank, Inc., and Citizens Deposit Bank and Trust. These transactions included approximately $238.2 million in loans and $307.7 million in deposits, while generating deposit premiums of approximately $11.2 million, after giving effect to a write-off of $3.0 million of core deposit intangible assets arising from the transaction. These three transactions improved Integra Bank's tier 1 and total risk-based capital ratios by approximately 216 basis points, and its tier 1 leverage ratio by approximately 87 basis points. The transactions also increased the Company's tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio by approximately 58 basis points. 

"Our plans to shrink the footprint of Integra Bank through sales of clusters of branches and performing and non-performing loans has met our operational and capital objectives and is essentially complete," stated Mike Alley, Chairman and CEO. "We will continue to seek buyers for our Chicago-area branches, but that is not a key component of our capital plan," Alley added.

The allowance to total loans was 6.56% at September 30, 2010, while the allowance to non-performing loans was 45%. The increase in the allowance for loan losses to total loans is due in part to the reduction in the loan portfolio resulting from the three branch sale transactions and other payoffs and paydowns of performing loans. Non-performing loans decreased $18.7 million to $212.7 million, or 14.6% of total loans, compared to $231.3 million, or 12.8% of total loans, including loans held for the branch divestitures pending at June 30, 2010. The decrease in non-performing loans was primarily due to a decline in the amount of additional loans being classified as non-performing, coupled with net charge-offs of $26.9 million.   

On August 16, 2010, Integra Bank received a Capital Directive issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ("OCC") dated August 12, 2010. Under the terms of the Capital Directive, the Bank is required, within 90 days, to achieve and maintain a total risk-based capital ratio of at least 11.5% and a tier 1 leverage capital ratio of at least 8%.   Integra Bank has provided the OCC with a capital plan covering a three-year period that describes steps the Company is taking to achieve the required minimum capital ratios. While capital raising efforts are ongoing, the Company does not anticipate that Integra Bank will meet those levels by the end of the 90 day period.

"Our third quarter results reflect the first decrease in non-performing assets since the third quarter of 2006," stated Alley. "We are disappointed, however, in the magnitude of our net loss for the quarter which was primarily attributable to increased deterioration of valuations of commercial real estate, particularly for unimproved land held as other real estate owned or as collateral securing commercial real estate loans. As we previously disclosed, we adjust the carrying value of non-performing assets as we receive updated appraisals. In today's depressed commercial real estate markets, that has increased our loan and OREO expense and loan reserves. We continue to pursue aggressive disposition strategies for all of these assets which further contributed to a significant loan loss provision and increased level of net charge-offs," added Alley.

"On the capital front, we recently reported we are actively engaged in discussions with private investors and private equity firms about investing in our company," Alley further commented. "While we do not expect to meet the required capital levels set forth in the OCC Capital Directive within the 90 day requirement, we are keeping our regulators fully informed of our efforts to raise capital and we hope to announce more definitive information later this year," Alley added. 

Commercial loan average balances decreased $199.6 million in the third quarter of 2010, including a decline in commercial real estate and construction and land development loans of $143.4 million. Commercial real estate loan balances, including construction and land development, at September 30 were $689.9 million, $139.6 million or 16.8% less than the June 30 balance of $829.5 million. Low cost deposit average balances decreased $134.1 million during the third quarter of 2010, primarily due to the effect of the second and third quarter branch sales.

Net interest income was $11.5 million for the third quarter of 2010, compared to $13.9 million for the second quarter of 2010, while the net interest margin decreased 24 basis points to 2.08%. The decline in net interest income reflects the lower amount of earning assets and related funding that resulted from the two second quarter and three third quarter branch sales. The yield on earning assets decreased 19 basis points during the third quarter of 2010, while liability costs increased by 5 basis points. The decrease in the net interest margin was primarily due to the lower level of earning assets, lower securities yields and an increase in average cash levels of $85.1 million, partially offset by lower retail funding costs. 

Non-interest income was $27.4 million for the third quarter of 2010, compared to $18.5 million for the second quarter, and included $11.2 million of premiums on sales of deposits realized from the third quarter branch sales net of a core deposit intangible write-off, a gain on the sale of divested loans of $9.5 million, other-than-temporary securities impairment of $0.6 million and a decline in deposit service charges of $0.9 million from the second quarter. The second quarter of 2010 included $4.4 million of premiums on sales of deposits realized from the second quarter branch sales and securities gains of $3.4 million. 

Non-interest expense was $28.8 million for the third quarter of 2010, compared to $22.5 million for the second quarter. Loan and other real estate owned expenses increased $4.4 million to $5.8 million and included $4.5 million of writedowns to assets within that portfolio. Non-interest expense for the third quarter also included legal and investment banking fees related to the third quarter branch sales of $2.1 million. 

The Company recognized $7.0 million of additional valuation allowance expense during the third quarter of 2010 to offset the tax benefit which resulted from its reported loss.

Integra Bank's total risk-based capital ratio was 9.34%, an increase of 101 basis points from June 30, 2010, its tier 1 risk-based capital ratio increased 100 basis points to 8.02% and its tier 1 leverage ratio decreased 22 basis points to 4.31%. Integra Bank continues to meet the minimum capital levels to be considered adequately capitalized. The positive impact of the third quarter branch sale transactions and loan paydowns were partially offset by the quarter's net loss exclusive of the branch sales. At September 30, June 30 and March 31, 2010, the Company had not met the minimum capital levels necessary for it to be considered adequately capitalized.  Its tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio declined 62 basis points during the third quarter of 2010 to (2.08)%.
