NAPLES, Fla., March 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TIB Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:TIBB) today reported its financial results fourth quarter of 2010.

"TIB has made significant progress in redirecting its focus on primary objectives of growth, expansion and improving profitability and efficiency. The satisfaction of regulatory capital requirements and compliance with its regulatory agreements has allowed a shift of the Company's attention to operating a conventional commercial and retail bank and providing increasingly competitive financial services and exceptional customer service to the communities we serve," said R. Eugene Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and NAFH. "We continue to increase our emphasis and focus on loan origination and core deposit generation. As a profitable, stable and secure financial institution, unlike many of our local community bank competition, we are actively seeking to expand our franchise, increase market share and develop new customer relationships," continued Taylor.

Significant quarterly accomplishments are outlined below.

  • The Company affected a 1 for 100 reverse stock split and launched a rights offering to shareholders of record as of July 12, 2010 which resulted in approximately $8.0 million of additional capital and compliance with the continued listing requirements of the Nasdaq Capital Market.
     
  • The Company's subsidiary bank's leverage, tier 1 risked-based ratio and total risk-based ratios were 8.1%, 13.0% and 13.1%, respectively, and exceeded all regulatory requirements at December 31, 2010.
     
  • The net interest margin increased 31 basis points to 3.16% during the quarter in comparison to 2.85% in the third quarter of 2010 due to continued favorable repricing of deposit liabilities coupled with the impact of purchase accounting adjustments resulting in the adjustment of above market deposits and borrowings to market yields as of September 30, 2010. While the high level of cash and highly liquid investment securities maintained during the quarter is available to be redeployed to fund higher yielding assets as such opportunities arise, the margin and overall earning asset yield is unfavorably impacted by these lower yielding assets.
     
  • The Company originated $37 million of residential mortgages, $3.3 million of commercial loans and $7.4 million in consumer and indirect loans to prime borrowers during the quarter.
     
  • The Company was granted additional credit availability from the FHLB and the ability to extend borrowing maturity duration beyond one-year.
     
  • Naples Capital Advisors and TIB Bank's trust department continued to establish new investment management and trust relationships, increasing the market value of assets under management by $47 million or 32% from December 31, 2009 and by $9 million, or 5% during the quarter to $193 million as of December 31, 2010.

Financial Discussion

Due to the closing of the investment by North American Financial Holdings, Inc. on September 30, 2010, resulting in their ownership of approximately 99% of the Company, significant preliminary accounting adjustments were recorded resulting in the Company's balance sheet being revalued at fair value. The most significant adjustments were recorded relating to loans which previously were recorded based upon their carrying amounts and were adjusted to reflect September 30, 2010 estimated fair values. Accordingly, under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, no allowance for loan losses was required at September 30, 2010 and the operating results of the Company in future periods will be impacted by these fair value adjustments as the underlying assets and liabilities are converted in the normal course of business. As the Company is still in the process of completing the fair value analysis of assets and liabilities, the final adjustments may differ significantly from the preliminary estimates recorded to date. Adjustments to preliminary fair value estimates previously reported as of September 30, 2010 are primarily comprised of the following: a $17.3 million increase in loans; a $19.2 million increase in deferred income tax assets; a $3.5 million decrease in certificates of deposit; a $1.7 million decrease in subordinated debt; a $1.0 million decrease in OREO; and a corresponding decrease of $39.7 million in goodwill.

The Company reported net income for the fourth quarter of $560,000 compared to a net loss of $45.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. The loss reported in the fourth quarter of last year was primarily due to the following: $24.0 million of income tax expense related to the recognition of a full valuation allowance against deferred tax assets; $16.4 million in provisions for loan losses and $5.9 million in goodwill impairment charges. Increases in net interest income of $1.3 million and $1.6 million, respectively, over the fourth quarter of 2009 and the third quarter of 2010 are primarily due to the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments which revalued above market deposits and borrowings to yield market interest rates as of September 30, 2010.

The provision for loan losses of $402,000 recorded during the fourth quarter of 2010 reflects the allowance for loan losses established for loans originated subsequent to September 30, 2010. No net charge-offs or losses on the disposition of other real estate owned were recorded as credit losses experienced during the quarter were incorporated in the net discounts recorded on loans and other real estate acquired as of September 30, 2010. The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense over the third quarter of 2010 reflects approximately $80,000 of severance costs. The decrease in net occupancy expense reflects the impact of purchase accounting adjustments related to recording premises and equipment at fair value and the corresponding impact on depreciation expense. Net income of $560,000, or $0.05 per common share for the current quarter, compared to a net loss of $67.56 per share for the third quarter of 2010 and $307.36 for the fourth quarter of 2009. The 2010 third quarter net loss allocated to common shareholders includes the impact of a $24.3 million gain allocated to common shareholders related to the exchange of Series A preferred stock for Common Stock and Series B Preferred Stock valued at approximately $12.2 million in connection with the investment by NAFH.

During the current quarter, the 31% provision for income taxes was lower than statutory rates due to the impact of earnings which are not taxable for federal purposes.
