Patriot National Bancorp Earns $909,000 In First Nine Months Of 2012; Restructuring Initiatives Lead To Greater Operating Efficiencies

Four owner-occupied residential real estate loans, of which three were already categorized as substandard, but accruing interest, deteriorated and were moved to non-accrual status during the quarter. Primarily due to this action, total non-accrual loans increased $12.6 million during the third quarter to $30.0 million, or 6.1% of gross loans compared to $17.5 million, or 3.6% of gross loans, three months earlier. Total non-accrual loans were $21.8 million, or 4.7% of gross loans at September 30, 2011. The overall trend, however, was positive as 93.2% of the portfolio remained current as of September 30, 2012.

Other real estate owned (OREO) was $1.3 million at September 30, 2012 compared to $1.5 million at June 30, 2012 and $4.7 million a year ago. Only one property remains in OREO and this property is contracted for sale in the fourth quarter. Non-performing assets, which consist of non-accrual loans and OREO, totaled $31.3 million, or 5.1% of total assets at quarter end, 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.

“Due to the favorable recent loss history as it relates to our assessment of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses, a loan loss provision was not recorded during the third quarter, the same as in the third quarter a year ago,” said Mr. Maher. In the second quarter of 2012, Patriot released $1.7 million from its allowance for loan losses. The allowance for loan losses totaled $6.7 million, or 1.34% of gross loans, at September 30, 2012 compared to $11.2 million, or 2.40 %, of gross loans a year ago.

Balance Sheet Review

Patriot’s net loans increased 8.8% to $493.1 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $453.1 million a year ago. The year-over-year increase in net loans is primarily attributed to increases in commercial real estate loans, lines of credit and residential real estate loans. At September 30, 2012 the loan pipeline totaled $87.9 million, which reflects Patriot’s increased focus on new loan production, targeted at strengthening the margin and building fee income.
