Camco Financial Announces Fourth Quarter And 2010 Year-End Results

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Feb. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Camco Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:CAFI), the bank services holding company for Advantage Bank, today announced fourth quarter financial results.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported net earnings of $1.0 million, or $0.14 per share. The Company's year-to-date loss through December 31, 2010 is $14.6 million, or $2.02 per share as Camco has continued to concentrate on decreasing criticized, non-performing and delinquent loans, while increasing total loans. Loan loss reserves to total loans also increased from 2.38% to 2.46% at December 31, 2010.

"As we stated throughout 2010, our year-to-date loss is primarily due to high charge-offs, declines in real-estate owned (REO) home values, and expenses related to classified assets and the foreclosure processes, all of which are realities we've had to face and deal with to ensure stability for our shareholders moving forward," said James E. Huston, President and CEO. "We believe we have built momentum moving into 2011 through our fourth quarter income that was a result of strong gains on sales of mortgage loans in an environment of low interest rates and increased re-financing."

The Company's net interest margin increased 59 basis points to 3.50% for the year ending December 31, 2010 from 2.91% for the year ending December 31, 2009, and up 16 basis points to 3.75% for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 from 3.59% for the quarter ended September 30, 2010.

"As we begin a new year, we are looking forward…with a focus on ensuring we continue to provide excellent customer service and a wide array of financial products for our customers. Simultaneously, we believe we are concentrating on areas that will provide ongoing opportunities for strength and growth," Huston said.
