Farmers Capital Bank Corporation Announces Third Quarter Earnings

Stocks in this article: FFKT

FRANKFORT, Ky., Oct. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Farmers Capital Bank Corporation (Nasdaq:FFKT) (the "Company") reported net income of $3.1 million or $.35 per common share and $9.5 million or $1.09 per common share for the third quarter and first nine months of 2012, respectively. This represents an increase of $2.8 million or $.38 per common share and $8.1 million or $1.08 per common share when compared to the same periods in 2011. Net income for the current quarter decreased $56 thousand or 1.8%, relatively unchanged compared with $3.1 million reported for the linked quarter. On a per common share basis, net income for the current quarter decreased $.01 or 2.8% in the linked quarter comparison.

"There are several positives to highlight that took place during the quarter," says Lloyd C. Hillard, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "The Company repurchased the warrant it issued in 2009 that would have allowed the U.S. Treasury to purchase common shares in the Company. The parent company also received $9.5 million in dividend payments from its subsidiaries, including $4 million from Farmers Bank," Mr. Hillard continues. "The dividend from Farmers Bank, which required regulatory approval, represents the first such payment since the bank entered into its agreement with regulators during 2009. And while nonperforming loans declined in the quarter, we are mindful that overall nonperforming assets moved upward - primarily from the addition of a single large restructured credit, and we will continue to work in a methodical fashion to bring those levels down."

A summary of nonperforming assets is as follows for the periods indicated.

Activity during the current quarter for nonaccrual loans, restructured loans, and other real estate owned is as follows:

There were four larger-balance nonaccrual loans totaling $8.8 million that moved to other real estate owned during the quarter as a result of repossession, one of which includes a real estate development property representing $6.2 million. The other larger-balance properties include a real estate development project of $939 thousand and two residential real estate properties totaling $1.7 million in the aggregate.
