Capital Pacific Bancorp Announces Results for Third Quarter of 2009

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - Capital Pacific Bancorp (OTCBB: CPBO) ("the Company") reported a net loss of $2.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. Including the effect of preferred stock dividends, the Company reported a net loss to common shareholders of $2.1 million, or $1.19 loss per diluted share.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company reported a net loss of $1.9 million. Including dividends, the net loss to common shareholders was $2.1 million, or $1.20 loss per diluted share.

The third quarter net loss was primarily a result of (1) a significant increase in the provision for loan losses which was the result of charge-offs on non-performing loans to reflect current real estate values, (2) an increase in the loan loss reserve for potential future credit deterioration in light of the prolonged economic downturn, and (3) write downs of other real estate owned.

Significant financial disclosures for the third quarter of 2009 include:

--  Strong deposit growth of $20.1 million, an increase of 20% for the
    quarter
--  Provision for loan losses of $3.8 million and increase in the loan
    loss reserve to 2.8% of total loans
--  Total net loan charge-offs of $2.6 million
--  Increase in non-performing assets to $8.3 million, or 5.2% of total
    assets
--  Gain on the sale of other real estate owned of $446,000
--  Impairment charges on other real estate owned totaling $716,000
--  Total risk-based capital ratio estimated at 13.9%
    

"In anticipation of today's economic conditions, over the past year and a half we raised private equity, participated in the U.S. Department of Treasury's Capital Purchase Program, made strategic personnel adjustments and continued to focus on growth of deposits at the bank", said Mark Stevenson, President and CEO of Capital Pacific Bancorp. "While we remain acutely focused on the resolution of our non-performing assets, we also continue to focus our efforts on strengthening the bank through new client development and increasing deposits."

Credit quality

At September 30, 2009, the Company's reserve for loan losses totaled $3.7 million, or 2.8% of total loans. The increase in the reserve for loan losses was $1.2 million in the third quarter, net of $2.6 million in charge-offs. Charge-offs include aggressive write downs on collateral dependent loans to net realizable value, absent further decline in market prices. During this economic cycle, the Company has consistently replenished the reserve for all charge-offs.

Non-performing assets

At September 30, 2009, non-performing assets totaled $8.3 million, or 5.2% of total assets. This is an increase of $2.8 million when compared to the previous quarter. Non-performing assets include loans 90 days past due and still accruing interest, loans on non-accrual status and other real estate owned as follows:

--  As of September 30, 2009, there were no loans 90 days past due and
    still accruing interest.
    
--  At September 30, 2009, the Company had $6.7 million in loans on non-
    accrual status, an increase of $5.2 million from the prior quarter which
    reflects an increase in the number of borrowers demonstrating financial
    stress due to the duration of the economic downturn.
    
--  At September 30, 2009, the Company had $1.6 million in other real
    estate owned, down $2.4 million when compared to the prior quarter.  Other
    real estate owned declined in part due to an impairment charge of $716,000
    in the third quarter.  In addition, the Company disposed of a $1.8 million
    property for a gain of $446,000.
    

Non-performing assets as of September 30, 2009 by sector were as follows:

                                                       Land
                              Commercial        Development

Loans

As of September 30, 2009, loans totaled $133.4 million, up $3.1 million for the quarter and down $1.9 million for the year. Loan growth has abated in 2009 reflecting weak economic conditions and planned reductions in certain loan sectors. During the first nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company originated $25.8 million in new loan commitments and renewed another $38.9 million in loan commitments. Total new and renewed loan commitments are approximately 80% of volumes experienced for the same period in 2008.

Land Development and Construction

Construction loans totaled $16.0 million, unchanged when compared to the balance in the previous quarter. The construction portfolio includes $7.9 million in land development, of which 23% is non-performing. The remaining balance is commercial construction, all of which is currently performing.

Commercial real estate

Commercial real estate loans totaled $65.6 million, up $4.7 million when compared to the balance in the previous quarter. Roughly half of the balance is owner-occupied. In total, $1.6 million, or 3% of the balance is non-performing.

The Company performs a stress test of its non-owner occupied commercial real estate portfolio twice a year. The results of the most recent test showed weakness under combined assumptions of increasing capitalization rates, interest rates and vacancy rates. Given the economic climate, the Company significantly increased the reserve for loan losses in the third quarter to address the potential deterioration that may occur in this sector.

Commercial

Commercial loans totaled $44.9 million, down $5.1 million when compared to the balance in the previous quarter and 4% of the balance is non-performing.

Residential

Residential loans comprise a relatively small percentage of the portfolio with a balance totaling $3.2 million, approximately half of which is non-performing.

Deposits

As of September 30, 2009, actual client deposits totaled $119.2 million, up $20.1 million for the quarter, and up $29.1 million for the year. The growth is attributable to a diverse array of customers and account types and is a result of the Company's focus on client development and increasing deposits.

Capital adequacy

The Company continues to be classified as well-capitalized by regulatory standards. The Company's total risk-based capital ratio is estimated at 13.9% at September 30, 2009. To be considered well-capitalized, a company must have total risked-based capital of at least 10.0% of risk-weighted assets.

The Company is a participant in the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Capital Purchase Program and currently has $4 million in preferred stock outstanding under this program. Preferred dividends accrued total $193,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

Net interest margin

The net interest margin was 4.21% in the third quarter of 2009, a decline of 41 basis points from the previous quarter's net interest margin of 4.62%. The decline was primarily due to a sizable increase in cash held at the Federal Reserve Bank currently earning .25%. The Company will likely continue to maintain a large cash position (interest-bearing) until the economic climate and the return on investment alternatives improve.

Non interest expense

Non-interest expense in the third quarter of 2009 totaled $2.0 million compared to $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2009. This category includes losses on the impairment or sale of other real estate owned. Excluding the impairment or sale of other real estate owned, non interest expense declined to $1.3 million which is slightly lower than amounts for the last several quarters.

Total FDIC assessments dropped to $52,000 compared to $123,000 in the prior quarter, which included a one time special assessment of $64,000.
