LOS ANGELES, July 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- City National Corporation (NYSE:CYN), the parent company of wholly owned City National Bank, today reported second-quarter 2013 net income of $59.7 million, up 9 percent from $54.8 million in the year-ago period. Earnings per share were $1.04, compared with $1.01 per share in the second quarter of 2012.

City National's net income in the first half of this year totaled $111.3 million, up 10 percent from $101.0 million in the first half of 2012. Earnings per share were $1.94, up 4 percent from $1.87 in the first half of last year.

City National also announced today that its Board of Directors has maintained and approved a quarterly common stock cash dividend of $0.25 per share, payable on August 21, 2013 to stockholders of record on August 7, 2013. The Board has also authorized a quarterly cash dividend of $13.75 per share on the 5.50 percent Non‑Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series C (equivalent to $0.34375 per related depositary share), payable on August 13, 2013 to shareholders of record on July 29, 2013.

  • Period-end loans and leases, excluding loans covered by City National's acquisition-related loss-sharing agreements with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), reached a record $15.8 billion, up 17 percent from June 30, 2012 and up 4 percent from March 31, 2013. Average second-quarter loan and lease balances, excluding FDIC-covered loans, grew to $15.4 billion, up 18 percent from the second quarter of last year. Average commercial loans were up 25 percent from the same period in 2012.
  • Second-quarter deposit balances averaged $23.1 billion, up 10 percent from the second quarter of 2012. Average core deposits, which equal 97 percent of total balances, were up 11 percent from the second quarter of last year.

"City National delivered another solid performance in the second quarter – its 81 st consecutive profitable quarter – achieving double-digit growth in assets, loans, deposits, and wealth management fee income, while strategically investing in, expanding, and benefiting from new talent, offices, products and technologies to better serve our clients and grow our business," said President and CEO Russell Goldsmith. "Our strong credit quality improved further. The company continued to add both new clients and more assets and income from existing clients.

"City National also added two new banking offices in the second quarter – one in San Francisco's East Bay area and, after 11 years in New York City, the bank's first ground-floor branch in Manhattan. This month, City National also expanded its commitment, capabilities and opportunities to serve the technology industry and its entrepreneurs and investors by opening a loan production office in Boston, led by an experienced technology banking team."
