First American International Corp. Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2013) - First American International Corp., the holding company for First American International Bank, with nine branches in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn in New York City, provided the following selected financial data for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Total assets were $518.4 million at June 30, 2013, down $11.5 million, or 2.2%, from June 30, 2012. Loans receivable, net were $342.6 million at June 30, 2013 or 66.1% of total assets, a decline of $35.6 million from $378.2 million at June 30, 2012. Loans receivable decreased as the company temporarily ceased originating commercial mortgage loans. Origination of 1-4 family residential mortgage loans continues. Construction and development loans, which comprise about 3.6% of total loans, have declined significantly as existing loans have matured and/or paid down. Other interest earning assets increased by $32.1 million, or 30.8%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2012, as the proceeds from borrower payments and sales of commercial mortgage loans provided funds that were invested in non-loan earning assets.

At June 30, 2013, there were approximately $17.9 million of nonperforming assets, compared to $33.7 million at June 30, 2012. Loans from 30-89 days past due were approximately $0.6 million at June 30, 2013, compared to approximately $5.3 million at June 30, 2012. The allowance for loan losses ended the quarter at $8.5 million or 2.43% of total loans.

Deposits at June 30, 2013 were $423.9 million, off $20.6 million, or 4.6%, from June 30, 2012. Certificates of Deposit, which were $198.0 million at June 30, 2013, decreased $30.4 million, or 13.3%, from June 30, 2012. Savings and money market accounts decreased $2.2 million or 1.5% while demand deposits accounts increased $11.6 million, or 16.5%, from June 30, 2012.

Stockholders equity at June 30, 2013 was $64.8 million, or 12.5% of total assets. This compares to $56.4 million at June 30, 2012.

Second Quarter 2013 Results of Operations

FAIC had net income of $1,160,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, or $977,000 net of preferred dividends and discount accretion, compared to net income of $1,957,000 for the quarter-ended June 30, 2012, or $1,779,000 net of preferred dividends and discount accretion. Net interest income before provision was $5,820,000 for the quarter, or 1.2% of average earning assets. This was $395,000, or 6.4%, less than the second quarter of 2012. The second quarter 2013 interest rate spread of 4.47% was down 30 basis points from 4.77% in the second quarter of 2012; the net interest margin of 4.68% was down 31 basis points from 4.99% in the prior year. A decrease in loans as a percentage of total assets contributed to the decline in net interest spread and margin. The ratio of average interest earning assets to average interest bearing liabilities was 132% for the second quarter of 2013 compared to 125% for the second quarter of 2012.

The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2013 was $8,544,000, or 2.43% of total loans, versus 3.90% at June 30, 2012. The lack of a provision for loan losses during the 2013 quarter and the lower level of the allowance reflected a reduction in loan losses and the improvement in the level of nonaccrual and delinquent loans during 2012 and 2013.

Bank fees and other non-interest revenue contributed $1,668,000 for the quarter-ended June 2013 compared to $2,613,000 for the quarter-ended June 2012. Operating expenses were $5,375,000 for 2013 compared to $5,261,000 for 2012. Operating expenses were 72.41% of total revenues in the 2013 quarter, compared to 59.59% in the same period in 2012.

The following were the principal contributors to the decline in net income. Net interest income declined by $395,000, principally because of the decline in the volume of loans, the highest yielding asset category. In June of 2012, FAIC recognized a valuation gain on mortgage servicing rights of approximately $1.2 million. Although an independent valuation of our servicing portfolio has been completed this year and it reflects an increase in its value, the effect of that increase, which we estimate to be approximately $465,000 of additional non-interest income, will not be recorded until the third quarter of 2013. Furthermore, in the second quarter of 2012, there was a $310,000 gain on the sale of a problem loan that was sold for more than the written-down value. These factors were partially offset by a $325,000 write down in the value of impaired investment securities in the second quarter of 2012. There were no loan sale gains or securities write downs during the second quarter of 2013.
