Stocks in this article: PNBK

Patriot National Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:PNBK) (“Patriot”), the parent of Patriot National Bank (the “Bank”), today reported it earned $909,000, or $0.02 diluted income per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to a net loss of $15.9 million, or $0.41 diluted loss per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. For the quarter ended September 30, 2012 Patriot earned $18,000 compared to $255,000 for the third quarter a year ago.

“In the third quarter we reduced operating expenses by 8.6% compared to the preceding quarter and posted our fifth consecutive quarter of profitability,” stated Michael Carrazza, Chairman of the Board. “We are on track to surpass our targeted levels of asset quality improvement by year-end and will continue to implement our core earnings profitability strategies in the fourth quarter.”

Financial Highlights:

  • Total Capital to Risk Weighted Assets was 14.78% for Patriot and 14.45% for the Bank at September 30, 2012. The Tier 1 Leverage Capital Ratio was 9.60% for Patriot and 9.37% for the Bank.
  • Non-interest operating expenses declined 5.0% in the current quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago primarily due to lower salaries and benefits and administrative expenses.
  • The net interest margin was 2.86% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 2.81% in the prior quarter and 3.40% in the third quarter a year ago.
  • Classified assets were 9.1% of total assets at September 30, 2012, compared to 10.4% at June 30, 2012 and 11.7% in the third quarter a year ago.
  • Non-accrual loans were $30.0 million, or 6.0%, of total loans at September 30, 2012, compared to $17.5 million, or 3.6% of total loans at June 30, 2012, and $21.8 million, or 4.7% of total loans, at September 30, 2011.
  • Non-performing assets, which consist of non-accrual loans and OREO, were $31.3 million, or 5.1% of total assets at September 30, 2012, compared to $19.0 million, or 2.9% of total assets at June 30, 2012 and $26.5 million, or 4.2% of total assets a year ago.

Asset Quality

“Aggressively managing our troubled assets remains a top priority. The increase in delinquencies during the quarter was driven by four loans secured by properties that are being marketed for sale,” said Christopher Maher, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We will remain diligent in our efforts to reduce credit costs as problem asset resolution occurs and the economy continues to recover.”
