Alaska Economic Update

This and other capital projects designed to open Alaska’s energy reserves to the world are still in the early stages. We are encouraged by the discussions occurring on this long-term project.”

Asset Quality and Balance Sheet Review
Northrim’s assets totaled $1.09 billion at December 31, 2011, compared to $1.07 billion at September 30, 2011, and $1.05 billion a year ago.
Portfolio loans increased 3% to $645.6 million at December 31, 2011, from $629.7 million at September 30, 2011, with an increase in commercial loans offsetting declines in construction loans while commercial real estate loans were virtually flat. At December 31, 2011, commercial loans accounted for 39% of portfolio loans and commercial real estate loans accounted for 49% of portfolio loans, as compared to 38% and 46%, respectively, a year ago. Construction and land development loans accounted for 6% of portfolio loans at December 31, 2011 and 7% at September 30, 2011 and 9% at December 31, 2010.
“We are continuing to sell foreclosed properties and are finding the valuations for these assets reflect a stable real estate market,” said Chris Knudson, Chief Operating Officer. “In addition, we are seeing fewer property owners in distress in our markets.”

These net recoveries are in contrast to net charge-offs of $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $4.3 million for the entire year of 2010,” added Knudson.

Review of Operations
Net Interest Income
Fourth quarter 2011 net interest income was down 1% year-over-year to $10.8 million from $10.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and up 4% from $10.4 million in the immediate prior quarter. For the full year, net interest income was down 4% to $42.4 million from $44.2 million in 2010.
“We continue to generate a net interest margin well above national peer averages according to the Uniform Bank Performance Report that is compiled by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (“FFIEC”),” said Schierhorn. In the fourth quarter of 2011, Northrim’s net interest margin was 4.55%, up 10 basis points from 4.45% in the third quarter of 2011 and down 2 basis points from 4.57% in the fourth quarter a year ago. Northrim’s net interest margin was 4.59% in 2011, compared to a 4.92% net interest margin generated in 2010.
Provision for Loan Losses
The loan loss provision in the fourth quarter of 2011 totaled $350,000, down from $550,000 recorded in the preceding quarter and down from $2.4 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. For 2011, the loan loss provision totaled $2.0 million, down from $5.6 million a year ago.
Other Operating Income
In addition to traditional loans and savings accounts, Northrim offers purchased receivables financing in its Alaska markets and the Pacific Northwest through a division of Northrim Bank and health insurance plans, mortgages, and wealth management including business and employee retirement services through several affiliates in which it shares an ownership position.
Total other operating income increased 15% to $3.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $3.4 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011, and $3.4 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. Total other operating income for 2011 increased 6% to $13.1 million, as compared to the same period in 2010.
“Purchased receivable financing is proving to be an attractive alternative to conventional loans for businesses to supplement their operating capital,” said Beedle. Purchased receivables income contributed $817,000 to fourth quarter 2011 revenues, compared to $695,000 in the preceding quarter and $445,000 in the fourth quarter a year ago. For the year 2011, purchased receivables income contributed $2.7 million to revenues compared to $1.8 million in 2010.
Income from Northrim’s mortgage affiliate increased 75% to $626,000 in the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2011, compared to $357,000 for the third quarter ending September 30, 2011, but it decreased 13% from $722,000 in the fourth quarter a year ago. For the year 2011, income from Northrim’s mortgage affiliate decreased 14% to $1.2 million, compared to $1.4 million in 2010. “Mortgage rates continued to decline in the fourth quarter of 2011 which drove strong demand for refinancing at our mortgage affiliate,” said Beedle.
Northrim’s employee benefit plan affiliate, contributed $538,000 to fourth quarter 2011 revenues, compared to $483,000 in the fourth quarter of 2010. In 2011, employee benefit plan income totaled $2.2 million, up from $1.9 million a year ago. “We offer service, value and a wide choice of employee health benefit plans for our business customers,” noted Knudson. “In addition, our three wealth management affiliates in which we have an ownership interest, Elliott Cove Insurance Agency, Elliott Cove Capital Management, and Pacific Wealth Advisors, also added $73,000 to fourth quarter revenues and $279,000 to revenues in 2011.”
In the fourth quarter of 2011, service charges on deposit accounts increased 10% from the fourth quarter a year ago. For the full year, service charges on deposit accounts declined 13% from 2010. “While many banks are seeing lower revenues for overdraft services, we have benefited from other revenue streams,” said Knudson. “We are continuing to see higher volumes of electronic banking transactions and have seen an increase in service charges during the fourth quarter.” Electronic banking fees increased 3% in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to the preceding quarter, and increased 10% from a year ago. For the year, electronic banking income grew 11% over 2010, reflecting increased debit card transactions.
Other Operating Expenses
“With the continuing sale of bank-owned properties, we are not generating the high levels of rental income from our OREO assets which has been a reduction to other operating expenses in past quarters,” said Beedle. “However, our investments in technology and infrastructure and a bank-wide focus on efficiency are beginning to realize positive results.” Fourth quarter 2011 other operating expenses remained flat at $9.4 million compared to the third quarter of 2011and increased 2% from $9.2 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. For 2011, other operating expenses declined 2% to $36.8 million, compared to $37.6 million in 2010, reflecting reduced personnel, marketing, insurance, and other expenses.
