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 $16.2 million for the twelve months of 2012 as compared to $11.0 million in 2011. The higher provisioning in 2012 as compared to 2011 is attributable to the change in loan mix, higher reserves for classified loans, loan growth, and higher net charge-offs in the twelve months of 2012 compared to 2011. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, net charge-offs totaled $8.4 million (0.37% of average loans) compared to $6.1 million (0.32% of average loans) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011. Net charge-offs in the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were primarily attributable to commercial and industrial loans ($3.1 million), construction loans ($2.5 million), commercial real estate loans ($1.2 million), home equity and consumer loans ($970 thousand), owner occupied real estate ($350 thousand) and the unguaranteed portion of SBA loans ($248 thousand).

Noninterest income for the twelve months of 2012 was $21.4 million compared to $13.5 million in 2011, an increase of 58%. This increase was due primarily to an $8.0 million increase in gains realized on the sale of residential mortgage loans. Service charges on deposit accounts increased $619 thousand in 2012 as compared to 2011, a 19% increase. Other noninterest income increased by $652 thousand primarily due to other loan income and ATM fees. Investment securities gains were $690 thousand for the twelve months in 2012 as compared to $1.4 million for the same period in 2011. A $529 thousand loss on the early extinguishment of debt was realized in 2012 due to restructuring of FHLB advances. Excluding investment securities gains and the loss on the early extinguishment of debt, total noninterest income was $21.2 million for the twelve months of 2012 as compared to $12.1 million for 2011, a 76% increase.

Noninterest expenses were $76.5 million for the twelve months of 2012, as compared to $63.3 million for 2011, a 21% increase. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were $9.2 million due to staffing increases primarily as a result of growth in residential lending, commercial lending and branch personnel and merit increases, incentive compensation and benefits increases. Premises and equipment expenses were $1.8 million higher due primarily to the cost of new branch offices, a new commercial lending office, two new residential lending offices and normal increases in leasing costs. Data processing costs increased by $861 thousand due to system enhancements and expanded customer transaction costs. Legal, accounting, and professional fees increases of $279 thousand were due substantially to higher professional fees, resolution of problem loans and related collection costs. FDIC insurance premiums were $106 thousand lower due to FDIC premium rate declines which took effect on April 1, 2011. Other expenses increased for the twelve months of 2012 versus 2011 by $1.1 million due substantially to increases in broker fees, other losses, and telephone. For the twelve months of 2012, the efficiency ratio improved to 51.40% as compared to 56.22% for the same period in 2011 and the ratio of noninterest expenses to average assets was 2.55% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to 2.51% for the same period in 2011.
