FirstCity Financial Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2010 Results
Revenues in Q3 2010 increased to $30.2 million compared to $18.7 million in Q3 2009. The Company's revenues in Q3 2010 included $8.2 million of income and gains from Portfolio Assets, $2.3 million of fee income attributable to our loan servicing platform; $1.6 million of interest income and gains from loans receivable; and $16.3 million of consolidated revenues from our railroad and coal mine subsidiaries.
Revenues in Q3 2010 increased as a result of $15.3 million of revenue from our newly-consolidated coal mine operation (we increased our stake in the coal mine subsidiary to a controlling interest from a noncontrolling interest in the second quarter of 2010). The coal mine revenue increase was off-set partially by a $3.9 million decrease in income and gains from Portfolio Assets in Q3 2010 compared to Q3 2009. This revenue decrease corresponds to a shift in the income-recognition methods used by the Company for certain of its existing and newly-acquired Portfolio Assets to non-accrual income methods (cost-recovery or cash basis) from the interest-accrual income method over the past 12-18 months. We apply non-accrual income-recognition methods to Portfolio Assets, as applicable, due to uncertainties related to estimating the timing and/or amount of collections as a result of the current economic environment. A decline in consolidated collections also contributed to the Portfolio Assets revenue decline in Q3 2010 compared to Q3 2009.
The Company incurred $5.8 million of combined net impairment provisions in Q3 2010 from its consolidated and unconsolidated Portfolio Assets and loans compared to $1.5 million of combined net impairment provisions in Q3 2009. The provisions in Q3 2010 were recorded primarily to reflect changes in management's estimates as to the timing and amount of projected future collections and declines in domestic real estate values. The global distribution of our Q3 2010 net impairment provisions included $4.7 million for domestic assets and $1.1 million related to European assets. Net provisions in Q3 2010 were split between consolidated assets ($4.1 million) and FirstCity's share of net provisions from unconsolidated subsidiaries ($1.7 million).
