First Financial Holdings, Inc. Announces First Quarter Fiscal 2011 Net Income
Advances from the FHLB at December 31, 2010 decreased $11.1 million or 2.2% from September 30, 2010 to $497.1 million and decreased $68.5 million or 12.1% from December 31, 2009. The decreases were primarily the result of using cash flow from the investment securities and loan portfolios to paydown advances, as well as the shift in funding mix to core and time deposits. First Financial maintains a strong liquidity position, with substantial on- and off-balance sheet liquidity sources and a stable funding base comprised of approximately 73% deposits, 16% borrowings, 10% equity, and 1% short-term liabilities.
Shareholders' equity totaled $315.3 million at December 31, 2010, essentially unchanged from September 30, 2010 and a decrease of $39.1 million or 11.0% from December 31, 2009. The decrease was primarily the result of net losses incurred during the last year. First Federal's regulatory capital ratios continue to be above "well-capitalized" minimums, as evidenced by the key capital ratios and additional capital information presented in the following table.
