Cape Bancorp, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, NJ--(Marketwire - Jul 29, 2011) - Cape Bancorp, Inc. ("Cape Bancorp" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CBNJ), the parent company of Cape Bank, announces its operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2011, Cape Bancorp reported net income of $617,000 or $.05 per common and fully diluted share, compared to net income of $699,000, or $.06 per common and fully diluted share for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010. The current quarter reflects the recognition of a $1.8 million gain on the sale of bank premises, with the remaining gain of $1.6 million, to be recognized evenly over the initial three-year lease period. The loan loss provision for the second quarter of 2011 totaled $3.9 million compared to $1.7 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010. Net interest income declined $523,000 to $8.6 million in the second quarter ended June 30, 2011 from $9.1 million in the second quarter of 2010, primarily resulting from the year-over-year decrease in the commercial loan portfolio. The second quarter of 2010 included an other-than-temporary-impairment (OTTI) charge of $514,000 compared to no OTTI charge in the second quarter of 2011. During the second quarter of 2011, the Company recorded net losses on the sale of other real estate owned (OREO) of $63,000 compared to net losses of $17,000 recorded in the second quarter ended June 30, 2010. Total non-interest expense declined $379,000 from the second quarter of 2010 as a result of lower salary and benefits costs ($271,000), lower loan related expenses ($191,000) and reduced equipment expenses ($123,000). These reductions were partially offset by increases in professional services, OREO expenses and other operating expenses. The net interest margin decreased 16 basis points to 3.55% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 from 3.71% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

Net income for the six month period ended June 30, 2011 totaled $8.9 million, or $.72 per common share and $.71 per fully diluted share, primarily as a result of the reversal of $7.7 million, or $.62 per share, of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance. This compares to $1.3 million, or $.11 per common and fully diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The six months ended June 30, 2011 included a provision for loan losses of $6.3 million, an OTTI charge of $211,000, loan related expenses of $717,000, OREO expenses of $262,000 (which included a $77,000 write-down of OREO properties), and net gains on the sale of investment securities totaling $148,000. The six month period ended June 30, 2010 included an OTTI charge of $3.1 million, a provision for loan losses of $2.0 million, net gains on the sale of OREO of $248,000, loan related expenses of $840,000, and OREO expenses totaling $437,000 (which included a $226,000 write-down of OREO properties).

Cape Bancorp's total assets at June 30, 2011 totaled $1.068 billion, an increase of $6.7 million from the December 31, 2010 level of $1.061 billion.

Total net loans decreased to $755.3 million at June 30, 2011, from $772.3 million at December 31, 2010, a decrease of $17.0 million, or 2.20%. This change is the result of a decrease in commercial loans of $12.8 million, a decrease in mortgage loans of $1.4 million and a decrease in consumer loans of $2.0 million. The allowance for loan losses increased $794,000 from $12.5 million at December 31, 2010 to $13.3 million at June 30, 2011. The allowance for loan loss ratio increased to 1.73% of gross loans at June 30, 2011 from 1.60% of gross loans at December 31, 2010. The allowance for loan losses to non-performing loan coverage ratio increased to 28.97 % at June 30, 2011 from 28.84% at December 31, 2010.

Delinquent loans increased $5.8 million to $40.5 million, or 5.27% of total gross loans at June 30, 2011 from $34.7 million or 4.43% of total gross loans at December 31, 2010. At June 30, 2011, the Company had $46.0 million in non-performing loans or 5.99% of total gross loans, an increase of $2.5 million from $43.5 million, or 5.54% of total gross loans, at December 31, 2010. Included in non-performing loans are troubled debt restructurings totaling $11.7 million at June 30, 2011 and $11.8 million at December 31, 2010 that were performing in accordance with their repayment terms.

OREO increased $1.4 million from $3.3 million at December 31, 2010 to $4.7 million at June 30, 2011, which consisted of ten commercial properties and one residential property. During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company sold four residential OREO properties with an aggregate carrying value totaling $382,000. The Company recorded net losses on the sale of OREO of $63,000 in the second quarter of 2011 compared to net losses of $17,000 recorded in the second quarter of 2010. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company sold five residential OREO properties and four commercial OREO properties with an aggregate carrying value of $1.3 million. For the six month period ended June 30, 2011, net gains of $63,000 recorded in the first quarter were offset by net losses of $63,000 recorded in the second quarter. This compares to net gains on OREO sales for the six months ended June 30, 2010 of $248,000. For the three month period ended June 30, 2011, the Company added three commercial and two residential properties to OREO with aggregate carrying values of $967,000 and $205,000, respectively.

Cape Bancorp's total investment securities portfolio increased $14.3 million, or 9.06%, to $171.7 million at June 30, 2011 from $157.4 million at December 31, 2010 resulting from the reinvestment of the cash proceeds from the sale of the bank premises on May 31, 2011, cash flows generated from the loan portfolio and a $4.6 million increase in the fair market value of available-for-sale securities.

At June 30, 2011, Cape Bancorp's total deposits increased $29.4 million, or 3.91% to $782.5 million from $753.1 million at December 31, 2010. The Company's total borrowings decreased to $134.0 million at June 30, 2011 from $169.6 million at December 31, 2010, a decrease of $35.6 million, or 21.0%.

Cape Bancorp's total equity increased to $144.5 million at June 30, 2011 from $132.2 million at December 31, 2010, an increase of $12.3 million or 9.34%. The increase in equity was primarily attributable to the net income of $8.9 million and a decrease in accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of tax of $3.0 million. At June 30, 2011 tangible book value was $9.13 per share, an increase of $.93 per share from December 31, 2010 and an increase of $1.04 from June 30, 2010. Cape Bank continued to maintain its well capitalized status for regulatory purposes.

Michael D. Devlin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cape Bancorp and Cape Bank, provided the following statement:

We are pleased to announce our seventh consecutive quarter of earnings for the period ending June 30th. This contributed to the rise in tangible book value, which has increased over a dollar a share, from June 30, 2010, to end the quarter at $9.13. During this quarter, the bank completed the sale of the main office complex, continuing efforts to monetize shareholder value. Additionally, management has maintained focus on troubled credits, keenly aware of the value in working to reduce current levels. Unfortunately, these efforts are impeded by the extraordinarily slow pace of foreclosure in New Jersey. Despite the foreclosure headwinds, we were able to market and sell OREO and return funds to earning assets during 2011. Troubled credits increased in the quarter, but the bank maintains the discipline of prompt and appropriate provisioning and charging off.

The local economy is enjoying the second summer season of ideal weather which has led to strong tourist activity. While revenues don't appear to be reaching prior peak levels, our customers are relaying that they are enjoying a modest increase over last year's respectable level of business. This improved business has not yet translated into increased demand for loans. While the bank's loan pipeline is improving, it is still below levels we had forecasted.

Looking forward, we believe the remainder of the year will be a continuation of business and economic trends seen in the first half of 2011. We expect the favorable yield curve to continue to support the profit model through year end.
