Colony Bankcorp, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Results

FITZGERALD, Ga., Oct. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Colony Bankcorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:CBAN), today reported net income available to shareholders of $411,000, or $0.05 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012 compared to net income available to shareholders of $208,000, or $0.02 per diluted share for the comparable 2011 period, while net income available to shareholders for nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $1,003,000, or $0.12 per diluted share compared to $1,103,000, or $0.13 per share for the comparable 2011 period. "Our pre-tax, pre-provision core earnings continue to support the credit-related expenses needed to address our problem assets. We remain cautiously optimistic about recent signs of improvement in the economy and housing and real estate market. This is reflected on our balance sheet as total loans outstanding have increased over the previous quarter end for the second consecutive quarter. The Company focus continues to be problem asset resolution and those efforts resulted in further improvement during the quarter as nonperforming assets decreased to $51.74 million at September 30, 2012 from $53.97 million at June 30, 2012, or a decrease of 4.13 percent, while the substandard assets to tier one equity plus loan loss allowance ratio improved to 63.87% at September 30, 2012 from 67.97% at June 30, 2012. Though improvement was realized this quarter, we still have much work ahead to meet our goals of reducing our problem assets to an acceptable level and returning to acceptable earnings. Our board, management and staff remain committed to making incremental progress toward these goals during 2012 and we were able to again accomplish that this quarter," said Ed Loomis, President and Chief Executive Officer.


Colony continues to maintain a strong capital position to be categorized as "well-capitalized" by regulatory benchmarks. At September 30, 2012, the Company's tier one leverage ratio, tier one and total risk-based capital ratios were 10.07 percent, 15.39 percent and 16.65 percent, respectively, compared to the previous quarter end of 9.71 percent, 15.67 percent  and 16.94 percent, respectively, at June 30, 2012 and to 9.33 percent, 15.38 percent and 16.64 percent, respectively, at September 30, 2011. Regulatory benchmarks to be categorized as "well-capitalized" for tier one leverage ratio, tier one and total risk-based capital ratios are 5.00 percent, 6.00 percent and 10.00 percent, respectively.
