FPB Financial Corp. Announces 2009 First Quarter Earnings and Declares Dividends

HAMMOND, LA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - FPB Financial Corp. (PINKSHEETS: FPBF), the holding company for Florida Parishes Bank, announced earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was $341,000; ($0.96 per diluted common share), down 16.4% from $408,000; ($1.15 per diluted common share) for the 2008 comparable period.

Earnings were affected by a 6.8% increase in net interest income, a 30.9% increase in non-interest income, a 9.1% increase in non-interest expense and an 816.7% increase in provisions for loan losses as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2008.

Non-interest income increased primarily due to a $115,000 gain on sale of an available-for-sale investment and a $55,000 increase in mortgage banking revenue. Non-interest expense increased due to increases in compensation, occupancy and FDIC insurance. Technology and information processing costs declined 42.9% due to credits received related to a computer software conversion completed in the 2008 fourth quarter. Provisions for loan losses increased by $245,000 due to a $845,000 increase in non-performing assets as compared to March 31, 2008. Net charged-off loans were $6,000 for the 2009 first quarter as compared to $4,000 in the 2008 first quarter and $98,000 in the 2008 fourth quarter. No other real estate was owned at March 31, 2009; December 31, 2008; and March 31, 2008.

Total stockholders' equity increased $2.9 million, or 23.4% to $15.4 million due to the January 23, 2009 issuance of $3.2 million of Series A and $162,000 of Series B Perpetual Preferred Stock to the U.S. Treasury from the Treasury's Capital Purchase Program (CPP). Total tangible common equity decreased $321,000 to $12.1 million primarily due to an accumulated other comprehensive loss on the subsidiary bank's $5.5 million investment in the AMF Ultra Short Mortgage Fund (ASARX). The fair value (market value) on March 31, 2009 of the company's AMF investment was $4.3 million. The AMF investment remains under impairment review, $500,000 of impairment charges were recorded on this investment in December 2008. The Company's other available-for-sale investment securities acquired at a cost value of $13.5 million are U.S. Government Agency issues of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae which held a fair value of $13.8 million as of March 31, 2009. The Company owns no held-to-maturity investment securities and $ 444,000 of fair valued (market valued) trading securities at March 31, 2009.

Total assets increased 4.2% as compared to the 2008 period, primarily due to a 148.4% increase to $16.0 million in cash and cash equivalents, a 6.8% increase in net loans, a 44.0% increase to $9.1 million in net premises and equipment, and a 41.6% decrease to $19.7 million in investment securities. Total liabilities increase 2.7% with deposits increasing 18.1%, non-interest bearing deposits increased 23.2% to $17.5 million and advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank decreased $16.9 million to $26.9 million or 39.5%.
