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

The provision for credit losses was $4.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011. At December 31, 2012 the allowance for credit losses represented 1.50% of loans outstanding, as compared to 1.44% and 1.48% at December 31, 2011 and September 30, 2012, respectively. The allowance for credit losses represented 122% of nonperforming loans at December 31, 2012, as compared to 90% at December 31, 2011 and 110% at September 30, 2012, respectively. The higher provisioning in the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, is due to change in loan mix, loan growth and higher net charge-offs. Net charge-offs of $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 represented 0.37% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to $1.7 million or 0.34% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in the fourth quarter of 2011. Net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2012 were primarily attributable to commercial and industrial loans ($1.4 million), construction loans ($459 thousand), home equity and consumer loans ($195 thousand), and the unguaranteed portion of SBA loans ($111 thousand).

Noninterest income for the three months ended December 31, 2012 increased to $6.1 million from $3.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011, a 57% increase. This increase was due primarily to an increase of $1.9 million in gains on sales of residential mortgage loans in the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, resulting from substantially higher volumes of residential mortgage refinancing activity. Other income increased $365 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, a 65% increase due substantially to loan fee income and ATM fees. Investment securities losses amounted to $75 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to no investment gains or losses for the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding investment securities losses, total noninterest income was $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of 59%.
