First National Bank Alaska Announces Unaudited Preliminary Results For Fourth Quarter

First National Bank Alaska’s (OTCBB:FBAK) net income for fourth quarter 2011 was $8.3 million or $25.02 per share. This compares to $10.6 million or $32.04 per share for the same quarter in 2010. Year-to-date net income of $34.8 million or $105.17 per share compares with $40.4 million or $121.61 per share through the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.

The decrease in year-to-date and fourth quarter net income was due primarily to lower yields on loans and investment securities, as the current economic environment continued to hold down interest rates. The year-to-date average yield on earning assets was down 49 basis points to 3.94% from 4.43% for the comparable period in 2010. Fourth quarter 2011 average yield on earning assets was down 52 basis points to 3.70% compared to 4.22% for the fourth quarter 2010. The decrease in yield resulted primarily from maturities of investment securities reinvested at lower current rates.

The year-to-date provision for loan losses was $1.2 million, compared with a net recovery of $0.5 million for the fiscal year ended 2010. The increase in provision resulted from specific loan charge-offs during 2011. Management maintains an allowance for loan losses adequate to cover the current estimate of probable losses. Management continues to closely monitor market conditions for potential future adjustments.

Established in 1922, First National is Alaska’s largest Alaskan-owned and operated bank, with ATMs and 30 branches in 18 communities throughout Alaska. More information about First National is available at .
