West Coast Bancorp Reports Net Income Of $5.7 Million For Fourth Quarter 2012 And $23.5 Million For Full Year 2012

The yield on total average loan portfolio of 4.97% in the fourth quarter of 2012 declined 22 basis points from the corresponding quarter in 2011 and stayed substantially unchanged from the previous quarter. Past periods' trend of higher yielding loans in the portfolio paying off or being refinanced at lower yields combined with new loan originations at current market rates continues to drive the yield on the total portfolio lower as compared to the prior year.

The Company's investment portfolio continues to have an unfavorable impact on its net interest margin. During 2012, the Company increased its investments in municipal securities while reducing its U.S. government agency securities portfolio. During this time, municipal securities purchases consisted principally of Oregon and Washington school district securities with State guarantees and fully amortizing mortgage-backed securities. The expected duration of the investment portfolio was approximately 3.0 years at December 31, 2012, compared to approximately 2.5 years twelve months earlier.
