MOLINE, Ill., Feb. 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QCR Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:QCRH) today announced net income attributable to QCR Holdings, Inc. ("net income") of $1.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, or diluted earnings per common share of $0.11 after preferred stock dividends of $1.0 million. By comparison, for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, the Company reported net income of $2.0 million, or diluted earnings per common share of $0.21 after preferred stock dividends of $1.0 million. For the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company reported net income of $919 thousand, or diluted loss per common share of $0.02 after preferred stock dividends of $1.0 million. 

Annual Earnings More Than Tripled

For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported net income of $6.6 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.53. This compares favorably to net income of $1.8 million and a diluted loss per share of $0.46 for the same period in 2009. 

"While we are disappointed that our fourth quarter earnings fell short of third quarter, we are pleased with the significant progress we made on our bottom-line during 2010," stated Douglas M. Hultquist, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Understanding the economic and regulatory backdrop, these results are a direct testament to our talented team of bankers and our unwavering commitment to our customer relationships."

The Company's net interest income for the current quarter totaled $12.3 million, a 2% increase from the prior quarter, and a 5% decline from the fourth quarter of 2009. For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported net interest income of $49.9 million, which is a 2% decline from the same period of 2009. Excluding one-time gains on sales of securities recognized in 2009, the Company's noninterest income grew $1.5 million, or 47%, from the fourth quarter of 2009 to the fourth quarter of 2010, and grew $1.3 million, or 10%, year over year. Increased gains on sales of residential real estate loans to the secondary market and sales of government guaranteed portions of commercial loans largely contributed to this growth. 

Mr. Hultquist added, "We are pleased with the improved trend in net interest income during the fourth quarter. Over the past year, maintaining net interest income has been a challenge as our overall liquidity position remains strong and we continue to operate in an environment with weak loan/lease demand and low-yielding alternative uses of funds. We continue to focus our efforts on managing the balance sheet to maximize net interest income while minimizing our liquidity risk and interest rate risk."

Significant Improvement in Nonperforming Assets during Fourth Quarter

Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2010 were $50.1 million, down $9.3 million, or 16%, from $59.4 million at September 30, 2010. Nonperforming assets at the end of the quarter declined to 2.73% of total assets from 3.29% of total assets at September 30, 2010. The large majority of the Company's nonperforming assets consisted of nonaccrual loans/leases and other real estate owned. During the quarter, the Company sold outright its single largest other real estate holding totaling $3.1 million for a small gain. A combination of charge-offs and improved performance attributed to the remaining decrease. 

"We are pleased with the sharp decline in our nonperforming assets during the fourth quarter," stated Mr. Hultquist. "Over the course of the year, we've seen strengthening in our core loan portfolio as the level of classified and criticized loans declined at the three bank charters. This translated over to a reduction in nonperforming assets here in the fourth quarter. Despite this positive movement, we remain committed to improving the quality of our loan/lease portfolio and all assets."

Provision for loan/lease losses totaled $3.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, a $1.6 million increase over the prior quarter, and a decrease of $1.2 million from the fourth quarter of 2009. Further, the Company's provision for loan/lease losses for the current year totaled $7.5 million, a reduction of $9.5 million from 2009. With provision for loan/lease losses of $3.1 million partially offset by net charge-offs of $2.6 million, the Company's allowance for loan/lease losses to total loans/leases increased from 1.67% at September 30, 2010 to 1.74% at December 31, 2010. 

Mr. Hultquist added, "Despite the decrease in nonperforming loans/leases in the fourth quarter, our provision and allowance for estimated losses on loans/leases increased from the prior quarter. Although the additions of nonperforming loans/leases have slowed, we did have a few nonperforming loans that were added in the fourth quarter. Upon customary specific review by management, it was determined those credits required specific reserves. Additionally, a few of our existing nonperformers required additional reserves in the fourth quarter. We continue to consistently apply a conservative and proactive methodology to our allowance for loan/lease losses."

During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company's total assets increased 2% from $1.81 billion at September 30, 2010 to $1.84 billion at December 31, 2010.  Increases in the Company's cash and federal funds sold positions were partially offset by a further decline in net loans/leases. The Company's securities portfolio remained flat at $424.8 million. The net increase in assets during the quarter was funded by strong and continued growth of the Company's noninterest-bearing deposit portfolio as balances grew $38.9 million, or 16%. 

"We've remained persistent in our focus on originating quality loans and leases while maintaining our strong liquidity position throughout the year," stated Todd A. Gipple, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Financial Officer. "We originated $382.3 million of new loans/leases to new and existing customers during the year; however, this was outpaced by payments and maturities as we continued to experience weakened loan/lease demand in our markets. During the fourth quarter, new loan/lease volumes did increase as we originated $138.9 million of new loans/leases to new and existing customers which is an increase over the third quarter of $42.1 million, or 43%."

Mr. Gipple added, "We are very pleased with the trends in our deposit portfolio over the year. We've been successful in shifting our mix from brokered and other time deposits to noninterest-bearing deposits which has helped to drive down our cost of funds. We continue to focus on growing our core deposit portfolios within our markets."

"As evidenced by the issuance of the $2.7 million Series A Subordinated Debt in the first quarter and the successful completion of the $25.0 million private placement of Series E Preferred Stock in the second quarter, the Company is clearly committed to maintaining its strong capital position. As of December 31, 2010, the Company and subsidiary banks continue to maintain capital at levels well above the minimum requirements administered by the federal regulatory agencies."

Rockford Bank & Trust Reports Net Income for the Year

Rockford Bank & Trust, a de novo bank opened in 2005, recognized net income of $811 thousand for 2010. By comparison, Rockford Bank & Trust reported a net loss of $2.2 million for 2009. 

Financial highlights for the Company's primary subsidiaries were as follows:

  • Quad City Bank & Trust, the Company's first subsidiary bank which opened in 1994, had total consolidated assets of $1.03 billion at December 31, 2010, which was an increase of $43.4 million, or 4%, from September 30, 2010. The bank's net loans/leases experienced a 1% decline as the economic downturn continued to weaken loan/lease demand. During the quarter, the bank's securities portfolio grew 1% to $269.4 million. The net growth occurred in the bank's cash and federal funds sold positions which were funded by continued expansion of the bank's noninterest-bearing deposits. The bank continues to have success growing its correspondent banking business as non-interest bearing correspondent deposits grew $25.2 million, or 45%, to $80.8 million over the year.  Quad City Bank & Trust realized net income of $6.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. By comparison, excluding one-time gains on sales of securities of $1.1 million and a one-time positive adjustment to interest income related to the resolution of a contingency related to a certain credit for $1.3 million, the bank realized net income of $4.4 million over the same period of 2009. 
  • Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust, which opened in 2001, had total assets of $546.8 million at December 31, 2010, which was a slight decrease from September 30, 2010. As the economic downturn continued to weaken loan demand, Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust's loan portfolio declined $9.6 million, or 3%, to $359.7 million.  Offsetting this decline, the bank's federal funds sold position grew during the quarter. The bank's securities portfolio remained relatively unchanged. Deposits and customer repurchase agreements were flat during the quarter. The bank's deposit portfolio continues to shift from brokered and other time deposits to demand deposits. The bank realized net income of $3.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2010, which is a significant increase over the $2.3 million of net income from the same period of 2009. 
  • Rockford Bank & Trust had total assets of $271.4 million at December 31, 2010, which was a slight decrease of 1% from September 30, 2010. As the economic downturn continued to weaken loan demand, net loans experienced a decline of $2.1 million, or 1%, during the fourth quarter of 2010. The bank's deposits increased $2.2 million, or 1%, to $198.5 million at December 31, 2010. The bank's deposit portfolio continues to shift from brokered and other time deposits to demand deposits.
