CORAL GABLES, Fla., Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Bank Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:CBF) today reported fourth quarter 2012 net income of $5.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share compared with net income of $37.8 million or $0.75 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012 (which included a $34.0 million tax benefit) and net income of $1.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. Results for the fourth quarter of 2012 included $3.8 million of non-cash equity compensation associated with original founder awards, $2.4 million of severance and conversion related expense associated with the acquisition of Southern Community Financial Corporation, $0.2 million of non-cash impairment charges related to intangible assets of Naples Capital Advisors and $0.1 million of merger expenses. Excluding these items, core net income, a non-GAAP measure, for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $9.3 million or $0.17 per diluted share as compared to core net income of $8.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012. The reconciliation of non-GAAP measures, which the Company believes facilitate the assessment of its banking operations and peer comparability, is included in tabular form at the end of this release.
Gene Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital Bank, commented, "We are pleased with Capital Bank's earnings performance for the fourth quarter of 2012, which reflected both an improved credit performance and the acquisition of Southern Community. We also produced a strong increase in loan originations for the fourth quarter compared with the third quarter and significant growth in core deposits.
"During the quarter, we successfully completed the integration of Southern Community. Capital Bank now operates 164 branches on one core processing platform, under centralized management, and with consistent products, rates, and branding across the entire footprint. Looking ahead to 2013, we are continuing to assess selected acquisition targets focusing on those that are additive to our Southeastern franchise without presenting material dilution. Our top priority for 2013 is to improve our core profitability."
