PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - Capital Pacific Bancorp (OTCQB: CPBO), (the Company), today reported financial results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2014. The Company is the parent company of Capital Pacific Bank (the Bank), a business bank focused on serving greater Portland area businesses, nonprofit organizations, private schools and companies committed to sustainable business practices.

Highlights

  • Net income to common shareholders in the second quarter of 2014 was $547,000 or $0.21 per common diluted share, up 50% compared with $364,000 or $0.14 per common diluted share in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Net income to common shareholders in the first half of 2014 was $1.09 million or $0.42 per common diluted share, an increase of 41% compared with $772,000 or $0.30 per common diluted share in the first half of 2013, primarily reflecting higher net interest income. Net income in the six months of 2014 represented record first-half earnings for the Company.
  • Total assets were $237.65 million at June 30, 2014, a 13% increase from $209.65 million at June 30, 2013, primarily reflecting a 15% year-over-year growth in total loans to $193.45 million at June 30, 2014 compared with $168.56 million at June 30, 2013.
  • Total client deposits increased to $209.82 million at June 30, 2014, compared with $183.56 million at June 30, 2013, reflecting the Company's focus on building relationship business with its commercial and nonprofit client base.
  • The net interest margin was 4.01% in the second quarter of 2014, reflecting an emphasis on managing interest expense, and identifying niche lending opportunities that reduce the impact of rate-based competition for quality loans.
  • Reflecting continuing positive trends in asset quality, total non-performing assets, including troubled debt restructurings, were 1.55% of total assets at June 30, 2014, stable compared with the prior two consecutive quarters, and down from 2.16% of total assets at June 30, 2013.
  • The Company's loan loss reserve was 191% of non-performing loans at June 30, 2014, while total non-performing assets (not including troubled debt restructurings) declined to 1.09% of total assets compared with 1.72% a year ago.
  • Return on average common equity (annualized) was 9.84% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 7.16% in the prior year's second quarter, while return on average assets (annualized) was 0.92% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 0.71% in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Reflecting enhanced shareholder value, the Company's book value per common share increased to $8.82 at June 30, 2014 compared with $8.00 a year earlier, an increase in value of approximately 10%.

"Our focus is to build Capital Pacific Bancorp through prudent organic growth by offering industry expertise and customized financial solutions," said Mark Stevenson, President and CEO. "Our relationship approach to banking has resulted in loan and deposit growth of 15% and 14% as compared with a year ago."

Stevenson said the Company's specialty in serving the needs of sustainability-focused corporations and nonprofit organizations has enhanced the Company's visibility throughout the Portland business community. The Bank's own commitment to social and environmental stewardship for the benefit of all stakeholders, including becoming a Certified B Corporation (B Corp) in the first half of 2014, has increased awareness of the Company's unique capabilities and approach to doing business, he added.

Income Statement Highlights

Net income to common shareholders in the second quarter of 2014 was $547,000 or $0.21 per common diluted share, compared with $364,000 or $0.14 per common diluted share in the second quarter of 2013. 

Net interest income for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.22 million compared with $1.93 million for the second quarter of 2013, a 15% increase. On a sequential quarter basis, net interest income was comparable to the first quarter of 2014. Interest expense was stable year-over-year, and the Company had no provision for loan losses in either reporting period.

Total non-interest expense in the second quarter of 2014 was $1.66 million compared with $1.63 million in the second quarter of 2013. The modest year-over-year increase primarily reflects the Company's investment in retaining experienced staff.

The Company reported a 4.01% net interest margin in the second quarter of 2014, compared with 4.02% in the second quarter of 2013. Stevenson explained the stability in the Company's net interest margin during the past four quarters reflects the Company's attention to interest expense management and targeting lending customers that value the Company's industry expertise and personal customer service.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net income to common shareholders was $1.09 million or $0.42 per common diluted share, compared with $772,000, or $0.30 per diluted common share for the six months ended June 30, 2013, a 41% increase. The increased earnings primarily reflect loan growth and the elimination of preferred stock dividends.

Net interest income in the first half of 2014 was $4.46 million, a 10% year-over-year increase compared with net interest income of $4.07 million in the first half of 2013. The Company had no provision for loan losses in either first-half periods.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Total loans at June 30, 2014 were $193.45 million, up 15% compared with $168.56 million at June 30, 2013. Total loans increased 3% from $187.98 million at December 31, 2013. Expansion in the Company's loan portfolio was due to growth in commercial real estate loans. 

"Our commercial real estate loan portfolio is very diverse, with limits on exposure to any single industry segment or asset class," commented Stevenson.

He added that a key goal in the second half of 2014 is to expand the commercial lending segment, which the Company defines as owner-occupied commercial real estate, working capital lines of credit, and equipment lending. "We expect a strong summer season. Our loan pipeline has depth, and approximately $4 million in commercial loans previously slated for June are expected to close in July," Stevenson explained. 

Total client deposits at June 30, 2014 were $209.82 million compared with $183.56 million at June 30, 2013 and $207.0 million at December 31, 2013. "I would characterize our opportunities for future deposit growth as very positive," said Stevenson.

Demand deposits equal 50% of total client deposits, providing a granular source of inexpensive funds. The Company had a 28 basis point cost of funds in the second quarter of 2014, consistent with the last four quarters.

Asset quality remained high, with total non-performing assets declining to $2.58 million or 1.09% of total assets at June 30, 2014 compared with $3.61 million or 1.72% of total assets at June 30, 2013. Non-performing assets, including performing troubled debt restructurings, declined to $3.68 million or 1.55% of total assets at June 30, 2014, compared with $4.54 million or 2.16% of total assets at June 30, 2013. 

Other real estate owned (OREO), a sub category of non-preforming assets, was $1.13 million at June 30, 2014 compared with $157,000 at June 30, 2013, reflecting the expected migration of a non-performing loan to OREO. The Company charged off $247,000 of this loan with reserves set aside in a prior period, and anticipates its sale without additional loss. 

"The overall credit profile of our loan portfolio is strong, and the number of underperforming loans is vastly reduced from recession era totals," said Stevenson. "Our few remaining problem credits are headed toward final resolution, releasing resources to focus on other initiatives." 

Operational Efficiency Improvement, Capital Adequacy, and Outlook

The Company's efficiency ratio was 67.09% for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to 76.64% in the second quarter of 2013, the result of growth in interest income. Stevenson noted the Company anticipates ongoing asset growth will make a positive contribution to the efficiency ratio in future quarters.

The Bank remained well-capitalized by accepted regulatory standards as of June 30, 2014, with a tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.56%, a tier 1 capital ratio of 12.33%, and a total risk based capital ratio of 13.59%.

"The Portland area economy and business environment is in greater health than many parts of the country," Stevenson concluded. "Our financial results demonstrate our ability to increase shareholder value as well as act as a strong socially responsible partner for our clients. We are enthusiastic about the Company's outlook for the remainder of 2014."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
