1st Source Has Strong Earnings In First Quarter, Cash Dividend Declared

1st Source Corporation (Nasdaq: SRCE), parent company of 1st Source Bank, today reported net income of $11.72 million for the first quarter of 2012, up 10.44% compared to the $10.61 million reported in the first quarter a year ago. Diluted net income per common share for the first quarter of 2012 amounted to $0.48, up 11.63% over the $0.43 for the first quarter of 2011.

At its April 2012 meeting, the Board of Directors approved a first quarter cash dividend of $0.16 per common share. The cash dividend will be payable on May 15, 2012, to shareholders of record as of May 7, 2012.

Christopher J. Murphy III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the first quarter by saying, "It was a good quarter for 1st Source. Our performance was built on the basics - income was up, expenses were down, and loan loss provisions remained about the same. We are starting to see our markets strengthen a bit as our loan portfolios grew 3.12%. Additionally, our net interest margin increased from last quarter and from a year ago. Credit remains a focus as we work through the challenges of the last several years.”

Mr. Murphy continued, “It was also a quarter where we saw several large projects reach fruition – a new business loan system is coming online that streamlines our processes making us more convenient and efficient for the commercial customer, and we have enhanced our online offerings at 1stsource.com so that we can chat – real time – with those who are visiting our website and respond to their needs.”

“Our steady performance is being noticed by others. During the quarter, we were recognized as one of the top 45 banks in the country when we were named to the KBW Honor Roll of Superior Performers over the last decade. We will remain diligent in providing outstanding client service, maintaining pristine credit quality, and exercising rigorous cost control which not only leads to inclusion in these types of acknowledgments, but more importantly, leads to long-term solid financial performance.”

Return on average common shareholders’ equity for 1st Source Corporation was 8.84% compared to 8.73% for the first quarter of 2011, and return on average total assets was 1.08% compared to 0.97% a year ago. As of March 31, 2012, the 1st Source common equity-to-assets ratio was 12.13%, up from 11.12% a year ago and its tangible common equity-to-tangible assets ratio was 10.32% compared to 9.29% a year earlier. Common shareholders’ equity was $531.89 million, up 8.45% from March 31, 2011. At the end of March 2012, total assets were $4.38 billion, down slightly from the $4.41 billion a year ago. Loans and leases increased 3.12% and deposits decreased 2.86% from a year ago.

For the first quarter of 2012, 1st Source provided $2.25 million to the reserve for loan and lease losses compared to $2.20 million for the first quarter of 2011. Net charge-offs were $1.50 million for the first quarter of 2012 compared to $2.91 million for the first quarter of 2011. The reserve for loan and lease losses as of March 31, 2012, was 2.62% of total loans and leases compared to 2.82% a year earlier. The ratio of nonperforming assets to net loans and leases was 2.19% on March 31, 2012, compared to 2.81% for the same period last year. As of March 31, 2012, nonperforming assets included $1.13 million of former bank premises held for sale.

Tax-equivalent net interest income was $37.92 million for the first quarter of 2012, up 0.95% from 2011's first quarter, and the net interest margin was 3.77% compared to 3.71% in the first quarter of 2011, and 3.66% in the fourth quarter 2011.

Noninterest income for the three-month period ended March 31, 2012 was $20.52 million, an increase of 8.28% as compared to the first quarter of 2011. Noninterest income increased primarily due to higher mortgage banking income. During the first quarter of 2012, residential mortgage loan production volume was $73.54 million compared to $38.85 million in the first quarter of 2011.

Noninterest expense for the three-month period ended March 31, 2012 was $38.05 million, a decrease of 1.11% as compared to the first quarter of 2011. Noninterest expense decreased as a result of reduced depreciation on leased equipment and lower FDIC insurance premiums. These decreases were offset by higher salary and employee benefit expenses and increased professional fees.
