Park National Corporation Results

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $78.6 million, a 4.3 percent decline from the $82.1 million in net income for 2011. Earnings per diluted common share were $4.88 for the year ended December 31, 2012, a 1.4 percent decrease from the $4.95 earnings per diluted common share reported for 2011.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $16.3 million, a 53.8 percent increase from the $10.6 million in net income for the same period in 2011. Earnings per diluted common share were $1.06 for the fourth quarter of 2012, a 79.7 percent increase from the $0.59 earnings per diluted common share reported in the fourth quarter of 2011.

"Our associates' hard work resulted in several highlights for the year, including improved lending results and the sale of the Vision Bank business," said Park Chairman C. Daniel DeLawder. "The economic environment continues to challenge most banks' efforts to increase net interest income, and we're very proud of our successful growth, consistency, and overall performance."

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2011 and for the year ended December 31, 2011 included pre-tax gains of $3.4 million and $28.8 million, respectively, from the sale of investment securities. There were no securities gains in 2012. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 included a pre-tax gain of $22.2 million from the sale of substantially all of the performing loans, operating assets and the liabilities of Vision Bank. Excluding securities gains in 2011 and the gain from the sale of the Vision Bank business in 2012, net income for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 would have been $64.2 million and $63.4 million, respectively.
