Community Trust Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTBI) reports earnings for the third quarter 2010 of $8.5 million or $0.55 per basic share compared to $5.6 million or $0.37 per basic share earned during the third quarter of 2009 and $8.6 million or $0.56 per basic share earned during the quarter ended June 30, 2010. Earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 were $23.8 million or $1.56 per basic share compared to $18.1 million or $1.20 per basic share for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

CTBI continues to maintain a significantly higher level of capital than required by regulatory authorities to be designated as well-capitalized. On September 30, 2010, our Tangible Common Equity/Tangible Assets Ratio remained considerably higher than our peer institutions at 8.58%, our Tier 1 Leverage Ratio of 10.22% was 522 basis points higher than the 5.00% required, our Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital Ratio of 13.37% was 737 basis points higher than the required 6.00%, and our Total Risk-Based Capital Ratio of 14.62% was 462 basis points higher than the 10.00% regulatory requirement for this designation.

Third Quarter 2010 Highlights
  • CTBI's quarterly basic earnings per share increased $0.18 per share from third quarter 2009 but decreased $0.01 per share from second quarter 2010. Year-to-date basic earnings per share increased $0.36 per share from prior year. Year-to-date earnings were positively impacted by increased net interest income, partially offset by decreased noninterest income and increased noninterest expense.
  • CTBI experienced significant improvement in our net interest margin year over year; however, our net interest margin for the quarter decreased 5 basis points from second quarter 2010.
  • As problem loans continued to work through the collection process, nonperforming loans increased from the $45.2 million at September 30, 2009 to $56.6 million but decreased $5.7 million during the third quarter 2010 compared to $62.3 million at June 30, 2010. The linked quarter decrease in nonperforming loans was in the nonaccrual classification. Nonperforming assets increased $15.9 million from prior year third quarter but decreased $4.8 million from prior quarter-end.
  • The loan loss provision for the quarter decreased $2.1 million from prior year same quarter but increased $0.6 million from prior quarter. The loan loss provision for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 increased $0.2 million from prior year.
  • Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 of $5.6 million, or 0.91% of average loans annualized, was an increase from the $5.2 million, or 0.87%, experienced for the second quarter 2009 and from prior quarter’s $1.8 million, or 0.30%, as previously identified problem credits work through the liquidation process.
  • Our loan loss reserves as a percentage of total loans outstanding at September 30, 2010 were 1.40% compared to 1.33% at September 30, 2009 and 1.48% at June 30, 2010 as specific reserves were utilized in the liquidation of previously identified problem credits.
  • Noninterest income increased for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to same period 2009 and prior quarter as a result of increased gains on sales of loans and the change in the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights portfolio. Year-to-date noninterest income decreased $1.1 million due to declines in gains on sales of loans and the fair value of mortgage servicing rights, partially offset by increases in trust revenue and deposit service charges.
  • Our loan portfolio increased $42.8 million year over year and $4.3 million, an annualized rate of 0.7%, during the quarter with increases in the commercial and residential loan portfolios offset partially by a decline in the consumer loan portfolio.
  • Our investment portfolio increased $38.2 million from prior year but declined $20.4 million during the quarter.
  • Our tangible common equity/tangible assets ratio remains strong at 8.58%.
  • CTBI has received both LaFollette First National Corporation shareholder approval and regulatory approval for its acquisition of LaFollette First National Corporation and First National Bank of LaFollette, the wholly-owned subsidiary of LaFollette Corporation. CTBI anticipates the acquisition will be completed in November 2010.

Net Interest Income

CTBI saw improvement in its net interest margin of 37 basis points for the first nine months of 2010 and 14 basis points for the third quarter 2010 compared to 2009; however, we saw a 5 basis point decline from prior quarter. Net interest income for the quarter increased 8.6% from prior year third quarter and 0.3% from prior quarter with average earning assets increasing 4.4% and 0.4%, respectively, for the same periods. The yield on average earning assets decreased 29 basis points from prior year third quarter and 10 basis points from prior quarter as higher yielding investment opportunities are limited. The cost of interest bearing funds decreased 56 basis points and 5 basis points, respectively, for the same periods. Net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 increased 14.4% from prior year.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 increased 14.9% and 11.0% from prior year third quarter and prior quarter, respectively. Year-to-date noninterest income declined 3.4% from prior year. The decrease in noninterest income was significantly impacted by decreased gains on sales of loans as 2009 was a period of significant refinancing of residential real estate loans, as well as a $1.2 million decline in the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights. The decline in these noninterest income sources was partially offset by increases in trust and brokerage revenue and deposit service charges.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the quarter increased 6.3% from prior year third quarter and 1.5% from prior quarter. Noninterest expense for the first nine months of 2010 increased 1.6% from 2009 as increased personnel expenses were offset by a decrease in FDIC insurance premiums and special assessment.

Balance Sheet Review

CTBI continues to experience internal growth of its banking franchise. Total assets at $3.2 billion increased 6.5% from the third quarter 2009 and an annualized 2.8% during the quarter. Loans outstanding at September 30, 2010 were $2.4 billion with a 1.8% growth from prior year and an annualized 0.7% growth from June 30, 2010. Loan growth during the quarter of $4.7 million in the commercial loan portfolio and $9.8 million in the residential loan portfolio was partially offset by a decline in the consumer loan portfolio of $10.1 million. CTBI's investment portfolio increased $38.2 million over prior year third quarter but decreased $20.4 million from prior quarter as CTBI continues to experience growth in its deposit base while loan demand remains weak. Deposits, including repurchase agreements, at $2.8 billion increased 6.9% from September 30, 2009 and an annualized 1.3% from prior quarter end.

Shareholders’ equity at September 30, 2010 was $336.8 million compared to $318.6 million at September 30, 2009 and $330.3 million at June 30, 2010. CTBI's annualized dividend yield to shareholders as of September 30, 2010 was 4.50%.

Asset Quality

CTBI's total nonperforming loans were $56.6 million at September 30, 2010, an increase from the $45.2 million at September 30, 2009 but a decrease from the $62.3 million at June 30, 2010. The quarter over quarter decrease in nonperforming loans is primarily attributable to the liquidation process of one large coal-related credit and one hotel/motel credit discussed in prior earnings releases. Both loans had specific reserves in place that were more than adequate to cover the amounts charged-off. Loans 30-89 days past due at $29.9 million increased $10.3 million from September 30, 2009 and $6.3 million during the quarter. The quarter over quarter increase in 30-89 days past due loans is a result of two commercial real estate secured credit relationships. One relationship is secured by income-producing properties while the second is secured by 1-4 family properties. Both loans are well-secured based upon current property valuations. Our loan portfolio management processes focus on the immediate identification, management, and resolution of problem loans to maximize recovery and minimize loss.

Our level of foreclosed properties increased to $41.1 million for the third quarter 2010 compared to $36.6 million at September 30, 2009 and $40.1 million at June 30, 2010. Sales of foreclosed properties for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 totaled $5.1 million while new foreclosed properties totaled $9.1 million. Our nonperforming loans and foreclosed properties remain primarily concentrated in our Central Kentucky Region.

Net loan charge-offs for the quarter were $5.6 million, or 0.91% of average loans annualized, an increase from prior year third quarter's $5.2 million or 0.87% and prior quarter’s $1.8 million or 0.30%. Of the total net charge-offs for the quarter, $4.3 million was in commercial loans, $0.8 million was in indirect auto loans, and $0.3 million was in residential real estate mortgage loans. Specific reserves covered 94.8% of the commercial loan charge-offs. Allocations to loan loss reserves were $3.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to $5.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 and $3.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. Our loan loss reserves as a percentage of total loans outstanding at September 30, 2010 was 1.40% compared to 1.33% at September 30, 2009 and 1.48% at June 30, 2010. Although there was an increase in net charge-offs during the quarter, management believes the current loan loss reserve is adequate. The adequacy of our loan loss reserves is analyzed quarterly and adjusted as necessary with a focus on maintaining appropriate reserves for potential losses. The analysis includes an individual loan review including current valuation of the collateral. Specific reserves are allocated to address any identified shortfalls in collateral while additional reserves address many other considerations, including but not limited to historical losses, loss trends, and current economic conditions, for adequate reserve coverage.
