  • Asset Quality Stable: Non-performing assets and loans 90+ days past due to total assets sequentially decreased from 2.00% at June 30, 2012, to 1.98% at September 30, 2012.
  • Capital Strength and Book Value per Common Share Growth: Tier 1, total qualifying and tier 1 leverage capital ratios increased to 16.29%, 17.55% and 12.27%, at September 30, 2012, respectively. Tangible common equity improved to 8.08% at September 30, 2012, as compared to 7.79% and 7.17% at June 30, 2012, and September 30, 2011, respectively. The book value per common share increased to $7.63 at September 30, 2012, as compared to $7.39 and $7.03 at June 30, 2012, and September 30, 2011, respectively.

Peter A. Converse, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I’m pleased to report another quarter of strong profitability with earnings per diluted common share of $0.21, up 23.5% year-over-year and 10.5% on a linked quarter basis. As a result, our ROAA of 1.11% and ROAE of 10.95% marked the second consecutive quarter of those profitability metrics exceeding 1.00% and 10.00%, respectively. Additionally, our retained earnings continue to bolster our already robust capital ratios which are well in excess of regulatory defined “well-capitalized” levels, while tangible common equity exceeded 8.00% at quarter-end. On the asset quality front, we made modest progress in continuing to address our remaining problem assets. Greater progress is anticipated in the fourth quarter as problem asset resolutions pending from the third quarter are concluded.”
