Community Trust Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTBI) reports earnings for the third quarter 2012 of $10.2 million, or $0.66 per basic share, compared to $10.7 million, or $0.70 per basic share, earned during the third quarter 2011 and $12.2 million, or $0.79 per basic share, earned during the second quarter 2012. Earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $34.3 million, or $2.22 per basic share, a 18.6% increase from the $28.9 million, or $1.89 per basic share earned during the first nine months of 2011.

3 rd Quarter 2012 Highlights

  • CTBI's basic earnings per share for the quarter decreased $0.04 per share from third quarter 2011 and $0.13 per share from second quarter 2012. Year-to-date basic earnings per share, however, increased $0.33 per share from prior year. The year-to-date increase in earnings was supported by increased noninterest income and decreased provision for loan loss and noninterest expense.
  • Net interest income for the quarter decreased slightly from prior year third quarter but increased $0.7 million from prior quarter as our net interest margin declined 15 basis points and increased 3 basis points, respectively, for those time periods. Year-to-date net interest income decreased $0.2 million as our net interest margin declined 20 basis points.
  • Nonperforming loans at $34.0 million decreased $3.5 million from September 30, 2011 and $1.3 million from June 30, 2012. Nonperforming assets at $89.6 million decreased $6.0 million from prior year and $1.6 million from prior quarter.
  • Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $2.9 million, or 0.45% of average loans annualized, compared to $2.7 million, or 0.41%, experienced for the third quarter 2011 and prior quarter’s $2.5 million, or 0.39%. Year-to-date net charge-offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $6.5 million compared to $10.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.
  • Our loan loss provision for the quarter increased $0.4 million from prior year third quarter and $0.5 million from prior quarter. Our loan loss provision for the first nine months of 2012 was $3.7 million below the first nine months of 2011 as net charge-offs declined $3.5 million and loans declined $22.0 million.
  • Our loan loss reserve as a percentage of total loans outstanding remained at 1.30% from June 30, 2012 to September 30, 2012, a decrease from the 1.36% at September 30, 2011. Our reserve coverage (allowance for loan loss reserve to nonperforming loans) at September 30, 2012 was 97.5% compared to 93.3% at September 30, 2011 and 93.8% at June 30, 2012.
  • Noninterest income decreased 0.9% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 and 9.6% from prior quarter. However, noninterest income for the first nine months of 2012 has increased 5.4% as a result of increased gains on sales of loans, trust revenue, and loan related fees, as well as a $0.8 million net securities gain in the second quarter.
  • Noninterest expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 decreased slightly from prior year third quarter but increased 6.9% from prior quarter. Year-to-date noninterest expense decreased 4.8% from prior year as a result of decreases in FDIC insurance premiums, legal fees, other real estate owned expense, and repossession expense, partially offset by an increase in personnel expense.
  • Our loan portfolio decreased $22.0 million from prior year but increased $4.1 million during the quarter.
  • Our investment portfolio increased $157.6 million from prior year but decreased $8.0 million during the quarter.
  • Deposits, including repurchase agreements, increased $92.5 million from prior year but declined $12.2 million from prior quarter.
  • Our tangible common equity/tangible assets ratio remains strong at 9.22%.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the quarter decreased slightly from prior year but increased $0.7 million from prior quarter with average earning assets increasing 4.3% and 0.5% and our net interest margin declining 15 basis points and increasing 3 basis points for the same periods. The yield on average earning assets decreased 33 basis points from prior year third quarter and 6 basis points from prior quarter. Loans represented 75.4% of our average earning assets for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to 79.7% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 and 75.8% for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The cost of interest bearing funds decreased 21 basis points from prior year third quarter and 10 basis points from prior quarter. Net interest income for the first nine months of 2012 decreased 0.2% as our net interest margin declined 20 basis points and average earning assets increased 5.0%. The increased cost of our Hoops CD product resulting from the University of Kentucky’s national championship win increased our cost of interest bearing funds and decreased our net interest margin by approximately 7 basis points during the second quarter and 6 basis points in the third quarter 2012. The fourth quarter 2012 impact is expected to be 2 basis points as the CDs begin to mature. The impact to the net interest margin for the year 2012 as a result of the rate increase is expected to be approximately 4 basis points.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income decreased 0.9% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 and 9.6% from prior quarter. Noninterest income for the first nine months of 2012 has increased 5.4% as a result of increased gains on sales of loans, trust revenue, and loan related fees, partially offset by a decline in deposit service charges. Loan related fees were impacted by $0.5 million in adjustments to the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights for the first nine months of the year. Noninterest income was also impacted by a $0.8 million net securities gain in the second quarter 2012.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense decreased slightly from prior year third quarter but increased 6.9% from prior quarter primarily due to an increase in the incentive compensation accrual and other real estate owned expense. Year-to-date noninterest expense decreased 4.8% from prior year as a result of decreases in FDIC insurance premiums, legal fees, other real estate owned expense, and repossession expense, partially offset by an increase in personnel expense.

Balance Sheet Review

CTBI’s total assets at $3.6 billion increased $84.9 million, or 2.4%, from September 30, 2011 and $5.8 million, or an annualized 0.6%, during the quarter. Loans outstanding at September 30, 2012 were $2.6 billion, decreasing $22.0 million, or 0.9%, from September 30, 2011, but increasing $4.1 million, or an annualized 0.6%, during the quarter. Loan growth during the quarter of $2.6 million in the commercial loan portfolio and $14.1 million in the residential loan portfolio was partially offset by a decline of $12.5 million in the consumer loan portfolio, primarily in our indirect auto lending area. CTBI's investment portfolio increased $157.6 million, or 33.9%, from September 30, 2011 but decreased $8.0 million, or an annualized 5.1%, during the quarter.

The decrease for the quarter included a $2.4 million decrease in nonaccrual loans partially offset by a $1.1 million increase in the 90+ days past due category. Loans 30-89 days past due at $21.5 million is a decline of $4.6 million from September 30, 2011 but a $4.5 million increase from prior quarter. Our loan portfolio management processes focus on the immediate identification, management, and resolution of problem loans to maximize recovery and minimize loss.
