Capital Pacific Bancorp Posts Profitable Third Quarter of 2008

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - October 16, 2008) - Capital Pacific Bancorp (OTCBB: CPBO) reported net income of $212,000 or $0.12 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2008, compared to net income of $170,000 and $0.11 per diluted share in the third quarter last year. For the year, net income grew to $1,141,000, or $0.67 per diluted share, compared to net income of $369,000, or $0.23 per diluted share for the same period last year. Net income for the year includes a second quarter pre-tax $1.0 million recovery related to a $2.0 million loan that was charged off in 2007. Excluding the recovery, net income for the year totaled $515,000, or $0.29 per share.

"Earnings have remained solid in each of the last three quarters despite unprecedented market disruption and declining real estate valuations," said Mark Stevenson, CEO of Capital Pacific Bancorp. "Overall, our loan portfolio remains well diversified by sector. Loans related to residential development are less than five percent of total loans, which is limiting our downside exposure in this market sector."

Loans and credit quality

As of September 30, 2008, loans totaled $130.2 million, unchanged when compared to the second quarter of 2008 and up $1.9 million when compared to the same quarter last year. Loan growth has softened when compared to prior periods, with new originations primarily focused in multi-family and owner-occupied commercial real estate loans.

The Company's reserve for potential loan losses increased slightly to $2.9 million in the third quarter of 2008, or 2.24% of total loans. Management believes the Company's reserve for potential loan losses is appropriate given prevailing economic conditions.

The Company did see some growth in non-performing loans in the third quarter of 2008 when compared to the previous quarter. In total, the Company has three non-performing loans including one loan in the amount of $441,000 for a condominium development in Portland, Oregon, one commercial real estate loan for $429,000 in St. Helens, Oregon, and one loan valued at $970,000 for a residential development in Vancouver, Washington. Each loan is believed to be well secured by the underlying collateral based upon recent appraisals and other market considerations. The Company is proceeding with foreclosure on two of the loans. In the case of each of these credits, the Company set aside specific reserves in previous reporting periods. Thus, no additional reserves were necessary in the third quarter of 2008. The Company also owns land in southern Oregon valued at $1,066,000 which is classified as other real estate owned and is supported by a current appraisal. In total, non-performing assets equal $2.9 million, or 2.13% of total assets, and 17.7% of total capital. There were no loans past due 90 days or more.

Deposits

Average client deposits of $89.9 million are virtually unchanged when compared to the last several reporting periods; client deposits totaled $90.2 million at quarter-end. The Company has posted solid growth in new clients, and overall account retention is strong. However, new deposit growth has been offset by fluctuations in client accounts driven by client-specific circumstances and other economic factors. Client deposits are defined as total deposits excluding brokered or nationally sourced deposits.

Net interest margin

The net interest margin was 4.74% in the third quarter of 2008, virtually unchanged from the previous quarter and down 27 basis points compared to the same quarter last year. The net interest margin included approximately $25,000 in interest recognized in a previous period that had to be reversed because of the increase in non-performing loans. Excluding the interest reversal, the interest margin was 4.86% in the current quarter.

Other financial highlights

--  Income associated with the sale of loans totaled $102,000 compared to
    $216,000 for the previous quarter, and $28,000 in the same quarter last
    year. While income from the sale of loans has been a consistent source of
    revenue for the Company, counterparty interest in this type of transaction
    is uncertain in the current market.
--  Non-interest expenses totaled $1.4 million, unchanged when compared to
    the prior quarter. Non-interest expenses are up 26% when compared to the
    same quarter last year, a period that included one-time valuation
    adjustments to both short and long term incentive programs. Growth in non-
    interest expenses is expected to be limited for the remainder of 2008.
--  The Company has no holdings in Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac preferred
    stock.
    

Capital adequacy

The company continues to be classified as well-capitalized by regulatory standards. Total risk-based capital was approximately 13.3% at the end of the third quarter of 2008.
