Farmers Capital Bank Corporation Announces Third Quarter Earnings

FRANKFORT, Ky., Oct. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Farmers Capital Bank Corporation (Nasdaq:FFKT) (the "Company") reported net income of $1.3 million or $.11 per common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to net income of $2.8 million or $.32 per common share for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 and a net loss of $174 thousand or $.09 per common share for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $6.0 million or $.63 per common share compared to $2.3 million or $.13 per common share for the same nine month period of 2009.

Net interest income for the third quarter of 2010 decreased $650 thousand or 4.6% from the linked quarter, but increased $125 thousand or .9% compared to the third quarter a year ago. Net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 increased $210 thousand or .5% compared to the same nine months of 2009. While the Company's net interest income continues to benefit from a decrease in overall interest expense, primarily on deposits, further improvements in net interest income have been limited by lower rates and lower volume in the loan portfolio and by lower interest income from investment securities due to lower rates. The Company has elected to sell certain higher yielding available for sale investment securities at a gain during the year to bolster capital and offset losses in its lending portfolio and repossessed real estate.

Noninterest income has increased in each of the comparable periods due mainly to net gains on the sale of investment securities. The sale of investment securities have been strategically made to lock in some of the overall increase in value of the portfolio and to strengthen capital. Multiple reinvestment scenarios were considered that would minimize the negative impact on the Company's future net interest margin. Net gains on the sale of investment securities were $3.9 million and $8.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010. This represents increases of $541 thousand or 16.1% in the current quarter compared to the linked quarter's gain of $3.4 million, $3.9 million in the current quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago, and $6.8 million or 328% in the first nine months of 2010 compared to the same nine-month period a year ago.
