QCR Holdings, Inc. Announces Record Net Income of $3.3 Million for Fourth Quarter of 2012, and Record Net Income of $12.6 Million for the Year

MOLINE, Ill., Jan. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QCR Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:QCRH) today announced net income attributable to QCR Holdings, Inc. ("net income") of $3.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, or diluted earnings per common share of $0.49 after preferred stock dividends of $811 thousand. By comparison, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported net income of $3.1 million, or diluted earnings per common share of $0.44 after preferred stock dividends of $811 thousand. For the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company reported net income of $2.7 million, or diluted earnings per common share of $0.35 after preferred stock dividends of $1.0 million.

Annual Earnings Up 30%, and Diluted Earnings Per Share Doubled

For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company reported net income of $12.6 million, or diluted earnings per common share of $1.85 after preferred stock dividends of $3.5 million. For the same period in 2011, the Company reported net income of $9.7 million, or diluted earnings per common share of $0.92 after preferred stock dividends of $5.3 million. The 2011 dividends included a one-time deemed dividend of $1.2 million as a result of the Company's repurchase of all of the preferred shares issued to the U.S. Treasury under the Troubled Asset Relief Program ("TARP").

"We are pleased with our record earnings for the fourth quarter and the year," stated Douglas M. Hultquist, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This marks two consecutive years of record earnings which is commendable considering the challenging economic and regulatory environment. The favorable earnings trends clearly indicate that our relationship-based banking model continues to be successful."

Net Interest Income Grew 6% in 2012

The Company's net interest income for 2012 totaled $57.6 million, which is an increase of $3.5 million, or 6%, over 2011. Net interest margin expanded to 3.10% for 2012 from 3.08% for 2011. For the fourth quarter of 2012, net interest income totaled $14.3 million, which is a 2% decline from the prior quarter, and an increase of 1% over the fourth quarter of 2011. Net interest margin was 3.02% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, which fell from the prior quarter (3.16%) and from the fourth quarter of 2011 (3.18%). The margin compression in the fourth quarter is the result of declining yields on new and renewed loans and securities reinvested more than offsetting the declining trend in funding costs. In addition, the Company carried elevated levels of liquidity in anticipation of loan growth which occurred towards the end of the quarter.

Mr. Hultquist added, "The margin compression in the current quarter is the direct result of the sustained historically low interest rate environment and its impact on our loan and securities portfolios. We continue to diversify our securities portfolio, but the effect of declining yields more than offset the effect of our change in mix in the fourth quarter. Further, the increased competition on pricing of new and renewed loans has driven yields lower. We have also increased our portfolio of variable rate loans, partly through execution of interest rate swaps whereby the customer pays a fixed interest rate and we receive a variable interest rate as well as an upfront fee. We believe the increased portfolio of variable rate loans helps position us more favorably for rising rate environments."

"We fully recognize the importance of net interest income and margin and the challenge facing the industry with the current economic and competitive landscape. We will continue to focus on diversifying our securities portfolio and shifting the mix of our funding from higher cost wholesale borrowings to lower cost core deposits, while growing quality loans and leases. It is more important than ever to focus on our relationship-based banking model and ensure that success continues to translate over to the pricing of loans and deposits."

Nonperforming Assets Grew Slightly with Favorable Shift in Mix

Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2012 were $29.6 million, up $496 thousand, or 2%, from the prior quarter, and down $10.9 million, or 27%, from December 31, 2011. In addition, the ratio of nonperforming assets-to-total assets was 1.41% at December 31, 2012, which was down from 1.44% at September 30, 2012, and down from 2.06% at December 31, 2011. Generally, the large majority of the Company's nonperforming assets consist of nonaccrual loans/leases, accruing troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs"), and other real estate owned ("OREO"). Accruing TDRs grew $1.3 million, or 21%, during the fourth quarter of 2012 as several problem loans were restructured. Partially offsetting the increase in accruing TDRs, OREO declined $1.0 million, or 21%, as the Company sold several properties. 

Provision for loan/lease losses totaled $1.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, a decline of $450 thousand over the prior quarter, and a decline of $373 thousand from the fourth quarter of 2011.  With the provision of $1.0 million more than offsetting the net charge-offs totaling $537 thousand, the Company's allowance for loan/lease losses grew to $19.9 million at December 31, 2012. With loan/lease growth of $43.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company's allowance for loans/lease losses to total loans/leases was relatively flat at 1.55%. Further, the Company's allowance for loan/lease losses to total nonperforming loans/leases was 78% at December 31, 2012 which is down from 81% at September 30, 2012 and up from 61% at December 31, 2011. 

"Although we experienced a slight increase in nonperforming assets during the current quarter, the shift in mix from OREO to accruing TDRs is favorable as the latter are performing on the restructured terms and accruing interest income," stated Mr. Hultquist. "Overall, we are pleased with the declining trend in nonperforming assets over the past several years. Our strong commitment to improving our asset quality continues to drive these results."

Loans/Leases Grew $43.1 Million, or 3%, during Current Quarter
Noninterest-Bearing Deposits Grew $33.4 Million, or 8%, during Current Quarter

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company's total assets grew $69.8 million, or 3%, to a total of $2.09 billion. Loans/leases grew $43.1 million, or 3%, during the current quarter, which was funded primarily by deposit growth ($30.9 million) and federal funds purchased ($39.5 million). The majority of the deposit growth continues to be noninterest-bearing deposits which now comprise 33% of the Company's total deposits. 

"We are pleased with our continued growth in loans and leases during the fourth quarter," stated Todd A. Gipple, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Financial Officer. "Importantly, we've grown loans/leases by $74.1 million, or 6%, over the second half of 2012 with most of this growth in commercial and industrial loans. Our talented commercial bankers understand the importance of quality loan growth and are committed to continue this growth and support of the businesses within our communities."

"On the funding side, we are pleased with our significant growth in deposits over the past several years," stated Mr. Gipple. "And, we are also pleased with the shift in mix within our deposit portfolio. Specifically, since the end of 2010, we have grown our noninterest-bearing deposits $173.8 million, or 63%, while our reliance on brokered and other time deposits fell $41.1 million, or 11%. Further, we remain committed to reducing our reliance on wholesale funding. We continually evaluate potential opportunities to prepay these liabilities, as we have executed successfully in the past." 

Capital Levels Remain Strong

As of December 31, 2012, the Company and subsidiary banks continued to maintain capital at levels well above the minimum requirements administered by the federal regulatory agencies. 

"We are committed to maintaining our strong regulatory capital positions," stated Mr. Gipple. "Even with the significant loan and deposit growth during the second half of 2012, our regulatory capital ratios are still well in excess of those levels required to be considered 'well-capitalized'. Additionally, we remain strongly committed to our long-term capital plan of self-generating the capital necessary to grow tangible common equity and to redeem the remaining Small Business Lending Fund ("SBLF") preferred capital without a dilutive common equity raise. We successfully executed on this plan in 2012. Specifically, our record earnings in 2011 and 2012 led to the partial redemption of $10.2 million of the SBLF preferred stock in the second quarter of 2012 and has positioned us for future redemptions. In addition, our tangible common equity has grown from 3.56% of total tangible assets at December 31, 2010 to 3.85% at December 31, 2011 and to 4.02% at December 31, 2012. With the future conversion of the Series E Preferred Stock to common stock, which is possible after June 30, 2013, and assuming we achieve the requirements to force conversion, our tangible common equity would increase to 5.25% of total tangible assets on a proforma basis."

Financial highlights for the Company's primary subsidiaries were as follows:

  • Quad City Bank & Trust, the Company's first subsidiary bank which opened in 1994, had total consolidated assets of $1.18 billion at December 31, 2012, which was an increase of $63.9 million, or 6% from December 31, 2011. Loans/leases increased $53.7 million, or 9%, during 2012. The bank's securities portfolio grew $6.1 million, or 2%, during the year, and the mix of securities changed as the bank diversified through increased investments in agency-sponsored mortgage-backed securities and municipal securities. The bank continued to expand its deposit portfolio as total deposits grew $85.0 million, or 14%, during 2012. Specifically, the bank continues to have success growing its noninterest-bearing deposit portfolio, which represented 45% of total deposits at December 31, 2012. More than half of the bank's noninterest-bearing deposit portfolio consists of correspondent bank deposits. Offsetting this increase, the bank's federal funds purchased declined by $20.1 million. The bank realized net income of $10.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, which is an increase of $1.9 million, or 21%, from net income of $8.8 million for the same period of 2011. 
  • Included in the discussion above and consolidated with Quad City Bank & Trust, m2 Lease Funds, LLC, the Company's leasing subsidiary, grew leases $11.2 million, or 12%, during 2012. Further, m2 realized pre-tax net income of $3.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, which is an increase of $1.3 million, or 63%, from pre-tax net income of $2.1 million for the same period of 2011.                          
  • Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust, which opened in 2001, had total assets of $625.7 million at December 31, 2012, which was an increase of $65.6 million, or 12%, from December 31, 2011. During 2012, loans grew $25.9 million, or 7%, with most of this growth occurring in the second half of 2012. In addition, the bank's securities portfolio grew $17.3 million, or 11%, during 2012.  Notably, the bank diversified its securities portfolio through increased investments in tax-exempt municipal securities. The majority of these municipal securities are located in or near our existing markets with strong underwriting conducted before investment. In addition, the bank's federal funds sold position grew $22.7 million during the year. The asset growth was funded by deposits as total deposits grew $72.6 million, or 20%. Partially offsetting the deposit growth, the bank continues to reduce its reliance on wholesale borrowings as Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances declined $5.4 million, or 7%. The bank realized net income of $5.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, which is an increase of $681 thousand, or 13%, over the same period of 2011. 
  • Rockford Bank & Trust, which opened in 2005, had total assets of $313.8 million at December 31, 2012, which was an increase of $19.4 million, or 7%, from December 31, 2011. During 2012, loans grew $6.8 million, or 3%. With loan demand soft during the year, the bank grew its securities portfolio by $13.6 million, or 34%, to $54.1 million. The resulting earning asset growth was funded by deposits, which grew $8.4 million, or 4%, and a combination of federal funds purchased ($4.0 million) and short-term FHLB advances ($6.0 million). The bank realized net income of $593 thousand for the year ended December 31, 2012, which is an increase of $181 thousand over the same period of 2011.
