Capital City Bank Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2010 Results
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Oct. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital City Bank Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:CCBG) today reported net income for the third quarter of 2010 totaling $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2010 and a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2009. For the first nine months of 2010, the Company reported a net loss of $2.3 million, or $0.14 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted share for the same period in 2009.
Net income for the third quarter reflects a loan loss provision of $5.7 million compared to $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2010. The increase in the loan loss provision and lower noninterest income of $1.2 million, partially offset by higher net interest income of $0.4 million and lower noninterest expense of $2.3 million, were the primary factors driving the reduction in earnings from the linked second quarter. Compared to the third quarter of 2009, a $6.7 million reduction in the loan loss provision, partially offset by a decline in net interest income of $1.8 million, lower noninterest income of $0.9 million and higher noninterest expense of $0.7 million, drove the improvement in earnings.
For the first nine months of 2010, lower net interest income of $7.5 million, a decline in noninterest income of $0.9 million, and higher noninterest expense of $3.6 million were the primary reasons for the decline in earnings over 2009. A lower loss provision of $9.1 million helped offset the aforementioned unfavorable variances."Given the current state of our economy, we were pleased to report a profit for the second consecutive quarter. Credit related costs continue to be elevated, but our diligence and focus on resolving problem assets is paying benefits as our nonperforming assets fell $4.2 million to $145.6 million as of quarter-end. Our capital levels remain strong and we believe we are well positioned to capitalize on opportunities evolving in our markets. While resolving problem assets is a high priority, it is not to the detriment of serving our existing clients and growing our business," said William G. Smith, Jr., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.
