Stocks in this article: ECBE

ECB Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE-AMEX:ECBE) (“ECB” or the “Company”) today announced its results for the twelve months and three months ended December 31, 2011.

2011 Annual and Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, net income was a loss of ($1,024,000), a decrease of (219%) compared to net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 of $860,000. After adjusting for $1,063,000 in preferred stock dividends and accretion of warrant discount, the net loss attributable to common shareholders for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 was ($2,087,000) or ($0.73) per diluted share compared to a net loss of ($203,000) or ($0.07) per diluted share for the year 2010. The 2011 loss attributable to common shareholders represents a higher loss than was reported in 2010 primarily due to a decrease in net gains on sales of securities, fees incurred in connection with the terminated private placement offering and increased data processing fees. As we previously reported in February 2012, ECB mutually agreed to terminate its announced private placement of $79.7 million in common equity. This action resulted in the recognition in 2011 of certain costs and expenses related to the capital raise that totaled $1.7 million in the aggregate. This expense contributed significantly to the annual and three months reported loss ended December 31, 2011.

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, the net loss totaled ($1,612,000), or a (43.4%) increase in net loss from the ($1,124,000) in net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2010. After adjusting for $266,000 in preferred stock dividends and the accretion of warrant discount, the net loss charged to common shareholders for the three months ended December 31, 2011 was ($1,878,000) or ($0.66) per diluted share, an increase in net loss of (35.1%) compared to the loss of ($1,390,000) or ($0.49) per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2010.
