City Holding Company Announces 2012 Earnings

Investment Securities Gains/(Losses)

During 2012, the Company realized investment gains of $1.2 million from the sale of certain equity positions related to community banks and bank holding companies. In addition, the Company also recognized gains of $0.3 million associated with the calls of trust preferred securities.

These gains were partially offset by $0.6 million of credit-related net investment impairment losses that were recorded by the Company in 2012. The charges deemed to be other than temporary were related to pooled bank trust preferreds with a remaining carrying value of $3.5 million at December 31, 2012. The credit-related net impairment charges related to the pooled bank trust preferred securities were based on the Company’s quarterly reviews of its investment securities for indications of losses considered to be other than temporary.

Non-interest Income

Exclusive of net investment securities gains and losses, non-interest income increased $1.9 million to $54.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $52.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Bankcard interchange fees increased $1.3 million, or 11.3%, to $12.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. This increase was primarily due to increased transaction volumes. In addition, trust and investment management fee income increased $0.7 million, or 21.5%, to $3.8 million due to core growth as Virginia Savings Bancorp did not offer these services. Other income increased $0.6 million, or 30.8%, to $2.7 million due largely to an increase in mortgage related lending activity.

Exclusive of other than temporary investment impairment losses and investment losses, total non-interest income increased $1.2 million to $14.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. This increase was due primarily to an increase in service charges from depository accounts of $0.6 million, an increase of $0.3 million in other income, and an increase of $0.2 million in trust and investment management fee income.
