SOLON, Ohio, Jan. 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PVF Capital Corp. (Nasdaq:PVFC), the parent company of Park View Federal Savings Bank, announced a net loss of $3,709,928, or $0.14 basic and diluted loss per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.
The Company continued to experience an elevated level of mortgage lending activity during the quarter, as borrowers took advantage of the low mortgage interest rates during much of the period. This mortgage volume resulted in mortgage loan sale income of $2.5 million, which was a decrease of $1.2 million from the linked quarter of September 30, 2010, and an increase of $1.2 million over the prior year quarter. Offsetting the revenues associated with the elevated levels of refinance activity was an increase in the amortization of the mortgage servicing asset, resulting in a net servicing loss of $677,000 for the period, compared with a net servicing loss of $150,000 for the linked quarter and servicing income of $107,000 for the prior year quarter. The back-up in mortgage rates during the second half of the quarter resulted in a slow down of refinancing activities and corresponding prepayment speeds from the prior quarter and resulted in a partial recovery in the estimated fair value of certain tranches of the Company's mortgage servicing rights, which had a valuation allowance of $1.2 million. The Company recognized a recovery of $719,000 during the period, leaving a valuation allowance of $465,000. The estimated value of the Company's mortgage servicing rights portfolio, as a whole, continues to exceed its carrying value.
