Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Announces Record Earnings For The Fourth Quarter Of 2012, With Full Year 2012 Earnings Up 44%

BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank, today announced record quarterly net income of $10.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, a 42% increase over the $7.2 million net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Net income available to common shareholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 increased 43% to $10.1 million ($0.44 per basic common share and $0.43 per diluted common share), as compared to $7.0 million ($0.35 per basic and diluted common share) for the same three month period in 2011.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company's net income was $35.3 million, a 44% increase over the $24.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Net income available to common shareholders increased 51% to $34.7 million ($1.65 per basic common share and $1.61 per diluted common share), as compared to $23.0 million ($1.16 per basic common share and $1.14 per diluted common share) for the year ended December 31, 2011.

"We are very pleased to report another quarter of record earnings, highlighted by strong, balanced and consistent financial performance, substantially higher total revenue from net interest income and noninterest income, continued favorable asset quality trends and substantial capital growth," noted Ronald D. Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. The Company's earnings have now increased in each quarter since the fourth quarter of 2008. Mr. Paul added, "For the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company continued its trend of achieving growth in both average loans and deposits, maintaining a strong net interest margin, and accomplishing enhanced levels of noninterest revenue, primarily from higher levels of residential mortgage refinancing activity. Additional liquidity was added to the balance sheet in the fourth quarter to address potential risk from expiration of the TAG deposit insurance program and normal year end activity. The Company also maintained favorable operating cost management as measured by both the Efficiency Ratio and the level of Noninterest Expenses to Average Assets. For the fourth quarter of 2012, average loan balances grew 4% as compared to the third quarter of 2012, while average deposit balances were 7% higher. The net interest margin remained strong at 4.31% for the fourth quarter of 2012, in spite of substantially higher balance sheet liquidity. Total revenue (net interest income plus noninterest income) was $40.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, 7% higher than the third quarter of 2012 and 27% higher than the same quarter one year ago."
