Cardinal Announces Record Third Quarter Earnings; Assets Exceed $3.0 Billion; Loan Quality Remains Strong

Cardinal Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: CFNL) (the “Company”) today announced quarterly earnings of $14.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the period ended September 30, 2012. This is a 68% increase over earnings of $8.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, from the third quarter of last year. On a year-to-date basis, earnings were $32.3 million, or $1.07 per diluted share through September 30, 2012, versus $19.8 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in 2011.

Selected Earnings Highlights
  • At September 30, 2012, total assets of the Company exceeded $3.0 billion, an increase of 18% from total assets of $2.6 billion at September 30, 2011.
  • Asset quality continues to be strong. Nonperforming loans remained low at 0.30% of total assets, and annualized net loan charge offs were 0.43% of average loans outstanding. The Company had no real estate owned at September 30, 2012, and only $306,000 loans receivable past due 90 days or more.

  • Total deposits grew to $2.2 billion, an increase of 21% compared to September 30, 2011. Demand deposit account balances increased 26% year over year.
  • The results of mortgage banking operations were again exceptional, contributing net income of approximately $7.0 million for the current quarter as the Company was positively impacted by mortgage rates remaining near record lows, leading to a continuation of strong refinance activity and an increase in local home buying.
  • The Company’s tax equivalent net interest margin increased to 3.62% for the current quarter, an increase from 3.57% for the previous quarter.
  • All capital ratios substantially exceed the requirements of banking regulators to be considered well-capitalized. Tangible common equity capital (TCE) as a percentage of total assets was 8.84%.
