SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/12/14 -- Coast National Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of Coast Bancorp (OTCBB: CTBP) today reported net profits of $1,000,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013, a significant improvement over the $88,000 net profit for 2012.
"As we wrap up 2013, the balance sheet improvement and positive 'turnaround' progress continued," said President and Chief Executive Officer Anita M. Robinson. "This positive success allowed the bank to recapture some of the provisions for loan losses from prior periods. While core earnings were below target, it was a direct result of reduced volume of Net Loans Outstanding and, resulting lower yields in earning assets. However, this trend began to reverse in 2013, as loan volume began to improve and new loan activity improved significantly. It is expected the bank will begin to reduce the excess liquidity through increased loan funding, thus improving the Net Interest Margin and future profitability."
"With the ongoing focus on community and small business lending, Coast National Bank is poised to move into an era of rebuilding and growth. Once again, the loyalty and commitment from our strong core customer base will be the foundation of future success in the coming years."
Coast National Bank Highlights:
Total assets at December 31, 2013 were $120.0 million, or 6.9% higher compared to $112.2 million at December 31, 2012. Total deposits increased to $111.6 million or 6.7% at year-end 2013 compared to $104.7 million at year-end 2012. Net loans were $64.4 million, down 8.7% at December 31, 2013 compared to $70.6 million at December 31, 2012. The decline in loans reflects the aggressive work in the resolution of troubled loan assets. Non-performing assets were $2.4 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $3.6 million at December 31, 2012.
In the fourth quarter, the bank posted a reverse provision for loan losses of $1.2 million, which reduced the Allowance for Loan Losses from 3.76% of gross loans outstanding at September 30, 2013 to 2.45% at December 31, 2013. At this level, the Allowance for Loan Losses is adequate in light of the bank's low level of non-performing loans of $1.0 million compared to $1.9 million at December 31, 2012.
Deposits ending December 31, 2013 increased from prior year by $7.1 million or 6.7%. Core deposits represent 93% of total deposits and demand deposits representing 36% of total deposits. The bank continues to drive a strong core customer base together with low cost of deposits averaging .22%, reduced from .33% in 2012.
At December 31, 2013 the bank's Tier I leverage ratio was 6.8% compared to 5.2% one year ago. Its total risk-based capital ratio was 12.9% at December 31, 2013 compared to 11.5% at December 31, 2012. Although not in compliance with the Tier I leverage ratio of 9.0% requirement under its Consent Order, it is considered to be "Well Capitalized." Management and the board of directors are executing its capital plan to bring the bank into compliance in this area.
Coast Bancorp Highlights:
Coast Bancorp reported net profits of $806,000 or $0.95 per basic and diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to a loss of $457,000 or $0.54 per basic and diluted share for 2012. Total stockholder's equity continues to reflect a deficit of $868,200, an improvement of 46% over 2012. Total consolidated assets were $120.3 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $112.5 million at December 31, 2012. Total consolidated liabilities of $121.1 million were centered in total deposits held in the bank of $111.6 million and Junior Subordinated Debt Securities of $7.2 million due in 2027, as well as Accrued and unpaid Dividends on these debt securities of $2.3 million which is due June 2014 in order to avoid a default.
The board of directors of the company continues to explore a capital raise. New capital will be utilized to satisfy the payment of unpaid dividends on the debt securities due by June 2014. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will be invested into the subsidiary bank to supplement current capital levels and bring the Tier 1 Leverage ratio in excess of 9.0%, in satisfaction of required capital levels by the regulator.
