Intervest Bancshares Corporation (IBC) (NASDAQ-GS: IBCA), parent company of Intervest National Bank (INB), today announced that its net earnings for the third quarter of 2013 (Q3-13) increased 16% to $2.6 million, or $0.12 per share, from $2.2 million, or $0.10 per share, for the third quarter of 2012 (Q3-12). For the first nine months of 2013 (9mths-13), net earnings increased 26% to $9.2 million, or $0.42 per share, from $7.3 million, or $0.34 per share, for the first nine months of 2012 (9mths-12). Since 1993, Intervest has been primarily engaged in commercial and multifamily real estate mortgage lending with an emphasis on cash flowing properties located on the East Coast of the U.S. Its lending operation is highly personalized and targeted to provide customized financing solutions for real estate acquisitions and operations. Intervest does not make construction or land development loans or single family home loans. As discussed below, the increase in quarterly earnings was driven primarily by a lower provision for real estate losses and a decrease in net real estate expenses, partially offset by decreases in both net interest income and noninterest income. The increase in year-to-date earnings was a function of the same quarterly factors as well as a credit for loan losses. Financial Operating Highlights
- The provision for real estate losses decreased to $0.2 million in Q3-13 from $1.0 million in Q3-12, and to $0.9 million in 9mths-13 from $2.9 million in 9mths-12, reflecting fewer write-downs in the carrying value of real estate owned through foreclosure (REO).
- Real estate expenses, net of rental and other income, decreased to $0.2 million in Q3-13 from $0.9 million in Q3-12, reflecting a lower level of REO. For 9mths-13, REO activities produced net income of $1.1 million, compared to $1.8 million of net expenses in 9mths-12, largely due to $0.8 million of gains from the sale of three properties and $1.6 million of cash recoveries of expenses associated with previously owned properties. Exclusive of these income items, net real estate expenses would have been $1.3 million in 9mths-13.
- The provision for loan losses was $0.3 million in Q3-13 compared to no provision in Q3-12. The increase was driven primarily by growth in the loan portfolio. For 9mths-13, a net credit for loan losses of $1.5 million was recorded compared to no provisions or credits for loan losses in 9mths-12. The credit was largely a function of partial cash recoveries of prior loan charge offs during the first and second quarters of 2013.
- Net interest and dividend income decreased to $8.8 million in Q3-13, from $9.8 million in Q3-12, and to $26.4 million in 9mths-13 from $29.5 million in 9mths-12. The net interest margin was 2.32% in Q3-13 and Q3-12, and 2.33% in 9mths-13 and 2.23% in 9mths-12.
- Noninterest income decreased to $0.9 million in Q3-13 from $1.2 million in Q3-12, and to $2.3 million in 9mths-13 from $3.7 million in 9mths-12. The decreases for both periods were due to less income from loan prepayments and a higher level of security impairment charges.
- Operating expenses decreased to $3.9 million in Q3-13 from $4.2 million in Q3-12, and to $12.0 million in 9mths-13 from $12.5 million in 9mths-12, primarily due to a decrease in FDIC insurance expense resulting from a smaller balance sheet and improved risk assessment rating.
- Our efficiency ratio (which measures our ability to control expenses as a percentage of revenues) continued to be favorable but increased slightly to 40% in Q3-13, from 38% in Q3-12, due to lower revenues.
- Income tax expense amounted to $2.3 million in both Q3-13 and Q3-12. For 9mths-13, income tax expense increased to $8.2 million from $7.3 million in 9mths-12 due to higher pre-tax income.
- Assets at September 30, 2013 totaled $1.58 billion compared to $1.67 billion at December 31, 2012, primarily reflecting decreases of $27 million in security investments and $30 million in cash and short-term investments.
- Loans outstanding increased by $44 million during Q3-13 and totaled $1.10 billion at September 30, 2013, compared to $1.11 billion at December 31, 2012. New loan originations for 9mths-13 increased to $221 million, from $159 million for 9mths-12, while loan repayments also increased to $225 million in 9mths-13, from $165 million in 9mths-12.
- Nonaccrual loans decreased to $39.5 million at September 30, 2013, from $45.9 million at December 31, 2012. Nonaccrual loans included restructured loans (TDRs) of $35.8 million at September 30 and $36.3 million at December 31 that were current and have performed in accordance with their renegotiated terms. At September 30, 2013, such loans had a weighted-average yield of 4.57%.
- The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2013 was $26.8 million, or 2.43% of total loans, compared to $28.1 million, or 2.54%, at December 31, 2012. The allowance included specific reserves for impaired loans (comprised of all nonaccrual loans and TDRs) at each date totaling $4.8 million and $5.9 million, respectively.
- Securities held to maturity decreased to $416 million at September 30, 2013 from $444 million at December 31, 2012.
- Deposits at September 30, 2013 decreased to $1.30 billion from $1.36 billion at December 31, 2012.
- Borrowed funds and related interest payable at September 30, 2013 decreased to $57.2 million, from $62.9 million at December 31, 2012, reflecting the payment in Q2-13 of accrued interest payable on outstanding debentures.
- REO decreased to $12.0 million at September 30, 2013, from $15.9 million at December 31, 2012. The decrease reflected $6.0 million of sales and $0.9 million of write-downs in carrying value, partially offset by the addition of one property in the amount of $3.0 million.
- Stockholders' equity decreased to $192 million at September 30, 2013, from $211 million at December 31, 2012, reflecting the redemption of $25 million of preferred stock and the payment of $5.1 million of preferred dividends in arrears, partially offset by $10 million of earnings.
- INB's regulatory capital ratios at September 30, 2013 were well above the minimum requirements to be considered a well-capitalized institution and were as follows: Tier One Leverage - 14.97%; Tier One Risk-Based - 19.21%; and Total Risk-Based Capital - 20.48%.
- Book value per common share was $8.77 at September 30, 2013.
The decrease in net interest and dividend income of $3.1 million in 9mths-13 compared to 9mths-12 was also due to a smaller balance sheet, partially offset by an improved net interest margin for the period. In 9mths-13, total average interest-earning assets decreased by $250 million from 9mths-12, reflecting decreases of $84 million in loans and $166 million in total securities and overnight investments. At the same time, average deposits and borrowed funds decreased by $265 million and $11 million, respectively, while average stockholders' equity increased by $8 million. The net interest margin improved to 2.33% in 9mths-13, from 2.23% in 9mths-12, reflecting a 6 basis point improvement in our interest rate spread and a $26 million increase in net interest-earning assets. The average cost of funds decreased by 37 basis points to 2.08% in 9mths-13, from 2.45% in 9mths-12, while the average yield on earning assets decreased by 31 basis points to 4.19% in 9mths-13, from 4.50% in 9mths-12. The reasons for the changes in the average yield and cost of funds were the same as those noted above in the quarterly variance.The decrease in securities held to maturity was due to calls exceeding new purchases. At September 30, 2013, the portfolio represented 26% of total assets and was comprised almost entirely of U.S. government agency debt ($333 million) and residential mortgage-backed pass-through securities ($80 million), with a weighted-average expected yield, remaining life and contractual maturity of 1.14%, 3.3 years and 6.3 years, respectively. The change in loans receivable reflected $198.3 million of payoffs, $26.9 million of amortization, $1.9 million of chargeoffs and a $3.0 million transfer to REO, largely offset by $221.1 million of new loans and $2.1 million of recoveries of prior loan charge offs. New originations were comprised of $139 million of commercial real estate loans, $50 million of multifamily loans and $32 million of loans made on investor owned 1-4 family condominiums. Loans paid off in 9mths-13 had a weighted-average rate of 5.96%. New loans in 9mths-13 had a weighted-average rate, term and loan-to-value ratio of 4.40%, 6.6 years and 61%, respectively, compared to 4.64%, 6.0 years and 58%, respectively, in 9mths-12. Nearly all of the new loans in both periods had fixed interest rates. At September 30, 2013, the loan portfolio was comprised of approximately 74% of commercial real estate loans and 25% of multifamily loans (inclusive of loans on investor owned 1-4 family condominiums).
The decrease in deposits reflected a $39 million decrease in CD accounts, of which $29 million were brokered, and a $25 million decrease in money market accounts. At September 30, 2013, there were $85 million of brokered CDs outstanding with a weighted-average rate of 3.48%, of which $32 million (with a weighted-average rate of 4.76%) mature within one year.On June 24, 2013, IBC repurchased 6,250 shares of its Series A Preferred Stock (Preferred Stock) from the U.S. Treasury for $6.1 million, plus an additional $1.2 million in accrued and unpaid dividends, for a total of $7.3 million.

The total cost of redeeming these shares was $22.6 million, which included $3.9 million of preferred dividends. All 25,000 shares of Preferred Stock were cancelled and IBC had no preferred stockholders at September 30, 2013.
