Dearborn Bancorp Reports Fourth Quarter And Year End Results

DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dearborn Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:DEAR), the Holding Company for Fidelity Bank ("Bank"), today reported a net loss of $2,379,000 or $(0.31) per fully diluted common share for the three months ended December 31, 2010 compared to a net loss of $5,806,000 or $(0.76) per share for the three months ended December 31, 2009. For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company's net loss was $14,249,000 or $(1.86) compared to a net loss of $61,175,000 or $(8.00) for the same period in 2009. The Company's Shareholders' Equity of $26,959,000 equates to a tangible book value of $3.51 per share compared to the market closing price of $1.65 on December 31, 2010. In accordance with regulatory capital guidelines, the Bank remains "undercapitalized" at December 31, 2010.

Historically, in 2009, the Company recorded a $25,851,000 valuation allowance against its entire deferred tax asset, recorded a $5,451,000 tax refund from the expansion of a net operating loss carryback from two years to five years, and wrote-off its remaining $3,997,000 intangible assets related to acquisitions completed in 2004 and 2007. Additionally, in March 2010, the Company restated year end 2009 financials by increasing the provision for loan losses by $10,000,000 that would have otherwise been normally recorded in 2010. These adjustments distort comparisons between 2009 and 2010 results. Regardless of the adjustments, 2010 was a substantial improvement over 2009 in terms of net loss, operating expenses, net interest margin, and asset quality by dollars.

At December 31, 2010 the Company's total assets were $915,684,000 compared to $986,486,000 at December 31, 2009. Total loans were intentionally reduced from $833,136,000 to $735,851,000. Total deposits declined from $867,955,000 to $812,101,000. Cash and cash equivalents increased from $77,497,000 to 93,775,000, and securities available for sale increased from $45,964,000 to $54,561,000. During 2010, the Company focused on strategically reducing loan balances to conserve capital while increasing the liquidity of the balance sheet.
