National Penn Bancshares, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011 Results

National Penn Bancshares, Inc. (Nasdaq: NPBC) reported net income available to common shareholders of $20.7 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to a net income available to common shareholders of $6.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2010. On an adjusted basis 1, net income for the quarter totaled $23.2 million, or $0.16 per diluted common share, compared to $13.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2010. Fourth quarter 2011 adjusted net income¹ excludes an after-tax unrealized fair value adjustment on National Penn’s trust preferred securities (Nasdaq:NPBCO) of $1.0 million and after-tax reorganization expenses of $1.4 million. For the year ended December 31, 2011, diluted earnings per common share were $0.56, while adjusted earnings per common share 1 were $0.59, compared to $0.10 and $0.30, respectively, for 2010.

“Enhanced profitability in 2011 supplemented an already strong capital base and further strengthened our financial position,” said Scott Fainor, president and CEO of National Penn. “I am proud of our team, which has remained focused on achieving our strategic goals and on sustaining improvement in asset quality metrics. The strength of our balance sheet is a competitive advantage that has been recognized by Forbes Magazine which recently ranked National Penn 15 th of the 100 largest banks on its list of America’s Best Banks 2 .”

Asset quality in 2011 improved steadily and remained strong relative to peers with all key measures improving from 2010 levels. During 2011, classified loans declined by 23%, total non-performing assets declined by 16%, and the ratio of net loan charge-offs to average loans improved to 0.74% from 1.57%. These asset quality trends resulted in a provision for loan losses of $15.0 million for 2011, compared to $95.0 million for 2010. While the provision declined, the allowance for loan and lease losses to non-performing loans remained strong at 184% at December 31, 2011, compared to 179% at year-end 2010.
