Bank Of Hawaii's CEO Discusses Q4 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Year-to-date, net income was $160 million or $3.39 per share compared to $183.9 million or $3.80 per share in 2010. We realized $6.4 million in securities gains this year, compared to $42.8 million last year. Year-to-date, return on assets was 1.22%, and return on equity was 15.7%.

Our net interest margin in the fourth quarter was 3.04% compared to 3.09% in the third quarter and 3.15% in the fourth quarter of 2010. Year-to-date, net interest margin was 3.13% compared to 3.41% last year. The lower margin is due mainly to the lower interest rate environment.

The credit provision in the fourth quarter was $2.2 million, the same as the third quarter, and was $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The credit provision for the fourth quarter of 2011 included net charge-offs of $7 million and a $4.8 million decrease to the allowance. The credit provision for the third quarter included net charge-offs of $3.7 million, and a $1.6 million decrease to the allowance.

The credit provision equaled net charge-offs for the fourth quarter of 2010. Our allowance for loan and lease losses at the end of the fourth quarter was $138.6 million or 2.5% of outstanding loan and leases. Non-performing assets were $40.8 million at the end of the fourth quarter, up $3 million from the third quarter, and down $3 million from the end of the fourth quarter of 2010. Included in non-performing loans are $25.3 million in residential mortgage loans as of the end of the year.

Non-interest income for the fourth quarter was $43.4 million compared to $50.9 million in the third quarter, and $51.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The decrease was primarily due to lower debit interchange revenue as a result of the Durbin Amendment, and a decrease in mortgage banking income. We retained $34 million in salable residential mortgages in the fourth quarter and thus maintained an overall ratio of 40% of residential mortgages to total loans.
