Stonegate Bank (OTCBB: SGBK) reported net income of $2,164,000 or 26.2 cents per share for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to net income of $2,800,000 or 34 cents per share in the fourth quarter of 2011. The Bank earned $9,082,000 or $1.10 per share in 2012, as compared to $11,544,000 or $1.40 per share in 2011.
Income and Expenses:
Total interest income increased from $10.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 to $12.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. This was the result of an increase in $132 million in total loans period to period. Total interest expense declined from $1.94 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 to $1.87 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. This occurred even though total deposits increased $72 million period to period. Net interest income improved from $8.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 to $10.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Excluding bargain purchase gains in 2011, total non-interest income decreased to $697,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $835,000 in the fourth quarter of 2011. Year to date non-interest income increased from $2,680,000 in 2011 to $3,625,000 in 2012, excluding 2011 bargain purchase gains. The Bank realized security gains of $234,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012. Per plan, these gains were taken largely to reduce the overall size of the investment portfolio and to shorten the duration of the overall portfolio.
Non-interest expense decreased from $6.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 to $5.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Total year to date non-interest expense decreased from $23.6 million in 2011 to $23.1 million in 2012.
Margin and Cost of Funds:
Total cost of funds, as compared to the September month-to date average, remained flat at a .92% December month-to-date average. Stonegate Bank's net interest margin increased from a third quarter 2012 average of 4.25% to a fourth quarter average of 4.76%. The increase was primarily the result of the Bank's realization of various fair market value discounts on acquired assets.
Balance Sheet and Capital:
Total assets grew from $855 million on December 31, 2011 to $945 million on December 31, 2012, a $90 million increase.

In order to better illustrate trends in asset quality the chart above shows the various categories and ending balances over the last four quarters, along with a comparison to the legacy portfolio at year end. This is presented to provide additional clarity on the portfolio trends as well as the Bank's progress in reducing non-performing loans and REO.
The Bank's non-performing loans remained relatively level from $6.1 million on September 30, 2012 to $6.2 million on December 31, 2012. Overall, non-performing loans represent 0.85% of total loans and 0.65% of total assets.

At December 31, 2012, there were no past due loans in the legacy portfolio.
"As I look back at 2012, several trends at Stonegate and the Florida economy are evident," said Dave Seleski, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Real estate, particularly residential, continues to improve in all the markets we serve. We have seen significant appreciation in home prices as evidenced by the median price of homes increasing year over year in all of our markets. In addition, most of our markets had reduced commercial vacancies and rental rates appear to be increasing as well. This is very encouraging.
"I think the public views the State of Florida as an excellent place to invest and expand their businesses. All of this certainly contributed to our 22% loan growth in 2012. We ramped up our loan production by adding additional lenders and without sacrificing our credit quality. In the asset quality section above I have added, for comparative purposes, a column showing only loans originated by Stonegate. This shows we have virtually no problems in our legacy portfolio. Our credit culture is and will always continue to be the foundation of our Bank.
"Our goal in 2013 is to continue to grow organically without sacrificing margin and credit quality. In addition, the bank will continue to evaluate potential mergers or strategic alliances that will enhance shareholder value," said Seleski.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
