City Holding Company Announces 2012 Earnings

The Company is also strongly capitalized. The Company’s tangible equity ratio was 9.4% at both December 31, 2012 and at December 31, 2011. At December 31, 2012, City National Bank’s leverage ratio is 8.72%, its tier I capital ratio is 11.51%, and its total risk-based capital ratio is 12.40%. These regulatory capital ratios are significantly above levels required to be considered “well capitalized,” which is the highest possible regulatory designation.

On December 19, 2012, the Board approved a quarterly cash dividend of 35 cents per share payable January 31, 2013, to shareholders of record as of January 15, 2013. During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company repurchased 237,535 common shares at a weighted average price of $33.32 as part of a one million share repurchase plan authorized by the Board of Directors in July 2011. At December 31, 2012, the Company could repurchase approximately 454,000 shares under the July 2011 authorization.

City Holding Company is the parent company of City National Bank of West Virginia. City National operates 73 branches across West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, and Ohio.

City completed the acquisition of Staunton, Virginia-based Community Financial Corporation (“Community”) and its wholly owned banking subsidiary, Community Bank effective January 10, 2013 at 12:01 a.m. The merger, which was announced in August 2012, received the approval of all required regulatory agencies in December 2012 and Community’s shareholders on January 8, 2013. Community shareholders received 0.1753 shares of City stock for each share of Community common stock, resulting in the issuance of 766,849 shares of City Holding Company. In connection with the acquisition, City repaid Community’s borrowings under the U.S. Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) of $12.6 million on January 9, 2013.

At December 31, 2012, Community had total assets of approximately $460 million, with stockholders’ equity of approximately $53 million, loans of approximately $410 million, and deposits of approximately $380 million. In addition, nonperforming assets at December 31, 2012 totaled $27 million. During the quarter ended December 31, 2012, Community had net interest income of $5.1 million, noninterest income of $0.85 million, and noninterest expenses of $4.3 million. Included in the noninterest expenses for the quarter ending December 31, 2012 were compensation and benefit costs of $2.0 million, repossessed asset losses of $0.8 million, data processing expenses of $0.25 million, and professional expenses of $0.2 million. City expects to reduce compensation and benefit expenses by approximately 25% based on employees retained after January 2013. During the fourth quarter of 2012, City recognized approximately $0.2 million, after taxes, of one-time merger related expenses for the Community acquisition and anticipates that between $4.0 million and $4.6 million, after taxes, will be recognized in the first quarter of 2013. Additionally, the credit mark originally estimated at $55 million is now anticipated to be in the range of $46 million to $51 million.
