Alaska Pacific Bancshares, Inc. Reports First Quarter Earnings for 2010JUNEAU, Alaska--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alaska Pacific Bancshares, Inc. (OTCBB:AKPB) ("Company"), the parent company of Alaska Pacific Bank ("Bank"), today announced its first quarter results for the period ended March 31, 2010. Net income (loss) not including preferred stock dividend and discount accretion for the first quarter of 2010 and 2009 was $(395,000) and $209,000, respectively. After preferred stock dividend and discount accretion of $75,000 and $46,000, net income (loss) available to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2010 and 2009 was $(470,000) and $163,000, or $(0.72) and $0.25 per diluted share, respectively.
"The loss for first quarter, while disappointing, includes the resolution of one of the larger problem credits that has reduced the Bank's earnings. The project is in Vancouver, Washington and it reached a final settlement with the 40 member bank group that financed the project resulting in a charge off of the remaining balance of that project," stated Craig Dahl, President & CEO. "We are seeing enough positive activity and interest regarding the other large credits that have been the focus of attention, and anticipate resolutions that will be in the Bank's favor. The primary performance numbers of the Bank remain very positive even though we have had to incur charges relating to the resolution of these few large credits. There is no doubt this has been a frustrating two and half years, but the core business of the Bank has remained sound."
Effective January 1, 2010, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 860.50, Servicing Assets and Liabilities, which provides the option of reporting servicing assets at fair value, which was elected by the Company. Subsequent changes in fair value will be reported in earnings in the period in which the change occurs. Upon adoption, management determined the carrying value of servicing assets was approximately $421,000 lower than the fair value. A cumulative effect adjustment of $421,000 was recorded to retained earnings effective January 1, 2010 for this change in accounting principle. Upon adoption, there was no impact to net income, earnings per share, or any prior years retained earnings.
Mortgage banking income decreased $85,000 (47.2%) to $95,000 for the first quarter of 2010 compared to $180,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 and decreased $135,000 (58.7%) compared to $230,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009. The decreases are associated with a decline in mortgages originated for sale from refinancing due to interest rate conditions.
Other noninterest income decreased $16,000 (5.7%) to $267,000 for the first quarter of 2010 from December 31, 2009 and increased $1,000 (0.4%) from the quarter ended March 31, 2009. Noninterest expense decreased $552,000 (20.7%) to $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2010 from December 31, 2009 primarily as a result of a decrease in real estate owned and repossessed asset expense. Noninterest expense decreased $112,000 (5.0%) to $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2010 from $2.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 as a result of a decrease in compensation expense and a real estate owned and repossessed asset expense.
The provision for loan losses increased $379,000 to $721,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 compared to $342,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 and increased $661,000 compared to $60,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009. The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2010 was $2.2 million, representing 1.41% of total loans outstanding. Total non accrual loans were $3.1 million at March 31, 2010 compared with $2.9 million at December 31, 2009 and $5.8 million at March 31, 2009. In addition, the Bank's real estate owned and repossessed assets were $2.9 million at March 31, 2010 compared with $2.6 million at December 31, 2009 and $408,000 at March 31, 2009. There was a $302,000 net loan charge off for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 compared to a $24,000 net loan charge off for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 and a $5,000 net loan recovery for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.
Interest income decreased $64,000 (2.6%) to $2.4 million for the first quarter of 2010 compared to the first quarter of 2009, reflecting an 8.0% decrease in average loans offset with an increase in yield on loans and other earning assets. The net interest margin on average earning assets was 5.13% for the first quarter in 2010 compared with 4.83% in the first quarter of 2009.
Loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $156.5 million at March 31, 2010, a decrease of $1.6 million, or 1.0% from December 31, 2009, and a decrease of $11.5 million, or 6.8% from March 31, 2009. Deposits at March 31, 2010, were $142.9 million, a $5.4 million (3.6%) decrease from December 31, 2009 and a $3.5 million (2.5%) increase from March 31, 2009. The decline in deposits in the first quarter of 2010 compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2009 is primarily attributable to a decline in money market accounts.
