Banner Corporation Reports Net Income Of $5.1 Million In Fourth Quarter; 2011 Net Income Highlighted By Improved Credit Quality And Strong Revenue Generation

Banner’s fourth quarter 2011 results included a net loss of $1.8 million for fair value adjustments as a result of changes in the valuation of financial instruments carried at fair value. In the immediately preceding quarter, Banner’s results included a net recovery of $3.0 million of principal and $881,000 of interest as a result of the full cash repayment of a security that had been written off a year earlier as an OTTI charge. That recovery was partially offset by a net loss of $1.0 million for fair value adjustments in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter of 2010, Banner recorded a net loss of $706,000 for fair value adjustments.

Total other operating income, which includes the above-mentioned changes in the valuation of financial instruments and OTTI adjustments, was $7.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to $10.3 million in the preceding quarter and $7.6 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. For the year 2011, total other operating income was $34.0 million, compared to $29.1 million for 2010. In addition to net fair value adjustments, the third quarter of 2011 and the full year 2011 included a $3.0 million recovery of a prior-period OTTI charge, while the third quarter of 2010 and the full year 2010 included net OTTI charges of $3.0 million and $4.2 million, respectively. Other operating income from core operations* (total other operating income, excluding fair value and OTTI adjustments) for the current quarter was $8.9 million, compared to $8.4 million for the preceding quarter and $8.3 million for the fourth quarter a year ago. For the year 2011, other operating income from core operations* was $31.6 million, the same as in 2010, as lower revenues from mortgage banking operations were offset by increased deposit fees and other income items.

Deposit fees and other service charges were $5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to $6.1 million in the preceding quarter and $5.5 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. Income from mortgage banking operations increased to $1.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $1.4 million in the immediately preceding quarter, but was lower than the $2.1 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2010. For the year 2011, deposit fees were $23.0 million and mortgage banking revenues were $5.2 million compared to $22.0 million and $6.4 million, respectively, for the year 2010.
