Green Bankshares Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter 2012

GREENEVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2012) - Green Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: GRNB), a majority-owned subsidiary of Capital Bank Financial Corp. ("CBF," formerly known as North American Financial Holdings, Inc.), today reported unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2012. Operating and financial highlights include the following:

  • Regarding the periods subsequent to the September 7, 2011 CBF investment, the Company reported net income of $3.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of approximately $224,000 from first quarter 2012 net income of $3.3 million or $0.02 per diluted share. The Company reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $12.4 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011.

  • The Company held a 34% ownership in Capital Bank, National Association ("Capital Bank, NA") as of June 30, 2012. CBF is the controlling owner of Capital Bank, NA, a $6.3 billion bank with 143 branches in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

  • As previously announced, CBF agreed to acquire 100% of Southern Community Financial Corp., which it expects to close, pending shareholder and regulatory approvals, during the third quarter of 2012. Upon closing, Southern Community's regulated subsidiary, Southern Community Bank and Trust, will be merged into Capital Bank, NA.

  • The Company increased the equity investment balance in Capital Bank, NA by $3.8 million based on its equity in Capital Bank, NA's net income and increased the equity investment balance by $2.0 million based on its equity in Capital Bank, NA's other comprehensive income in the second quarter of 2012.

"Our team has been working hard in planning for the pending acquisition of Southern Community Financial Corp. While shareholder and regulatory approvals are still pending, Southern Community will expand the Bank's franchise throughout North Carolina, where we see significant growth opportunities. Our recent renegotiation of the investment agreement to change the consideration mix to 100% cash represents our continued commitment to this strategic complement to our organization and eliminates obstacles on the road to a successful merger," stated Gene Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and Capital Bank.

"Our strongest quarter to date for organic loan production, successes in resolution of problem assets and continued aggressive deposit repricing resulted in continued improvement in the Bank's loan mix, net interest margin and profitability. The consolidation of certain duplicative functions during the second quarter is expected to result in further improvement of our efficiency ratio and our overall returns," commented Chris Marshall, Chief Financial Officer of the Company and Capital Bank.

As previously announced, CBF agreed to acquire 100% of Southern Community Financial Corp., which it expects to close, pending shareholder and regulatory approvals, during the third quarter of 2012. Upon closing, Southern Community's regulated subsidiary, Southern Community Bank and Trust, will be merged into Capital Bank, NA.

Bank Mergers

On September 7, 2011, GreenBank, which was formerly a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, merged (the "Bank Merger") with and into Capital Bank, NA, a national banking association and subsidiary of TIB Financial Corp. ("TIB Financial"), a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Florida, Capital Bank Corporation, a corporation organized under the laws of the state of North Carolina ("Capital Bank Corp.") and CBF, with Capital Bank, NA as the surviving entity. Through the subsidiary bank mergers the common stock of the subsidiary banks was converted into shares of Capital Bank, NA common stock based on each entity's relative tangible book value. As a result of the mergers of TIB Bank, Capital Bank and Green Bank into Capital Bank, NA, the Company now owns approximately 34% of Capital Bank, NA, with CBF directly owning 19%, Capital Bank Corp. directly owning 26% and TIB Financial owning the remaining 21%. As of June 30, 2012, Capital Bank, NA had total assets of $6.3 billion, total deposits of $5.1 billion and shareholders' equity of $966.5 million. As of June 30, 2012, following the Bank Merger, Capital Bank, NA operated 143 branches in Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. CBF is the owner of approximately 90% of the Company's common stock, approximately 83% of Capital Bank Corp.'s common stock and approximately 94% of TIB Financial's common stock.

The Company's investment in Capital Bank, NA is recorded as an equity-method investment in that entity. As of June 30, 2012, the Company's investment in Capital Bank, NA totaled $324.3 million, which reflected the Company's pro rata ownership of Capital Bank, NA's total shareholders' equity as a result of the Bank Merger. In periods subsequent to the Bank Merger, the Company will adjust this equity investment balance based on its equity in Capital Bank, NA's net income and comprehensive income. In connection with the Bank Merger, the assets and liabilities of GreenBank were deconsolidated from the Company's balance sheet, resulting in a significant decrease in total assets and total liabilities of the Company in the third quarter of 2011.

Financial Discussion

Financial results for the second quarter of 2012 were significantly impacted by the controlling investment in the Company by CBF pursuant to which the Company applied push-down accounting for adjustments required due to the acquisition method of accounting. Accordingly, the Company's assets and liabilities were adjusted to estimated fair values as of the September 7, 2011 CBF investment date, resulting in elimination of the allowance for loan losses. Financial results prior to the CBF Investment have been labeled with "Predecessor Company" while results subsequent to the CBF Investment have been labeled with "Successor Company."

The Successor Company reported net income of $3.0 million for the second quarter of 2012; these results reflected the Company's $3.8 million equity method income in Capital Bank, NA, $430,000 of non-interest expenses, and a $503,000 tax benefit. In comparison to the first quarter of 2012, the Successor Company reported net income of $3.3 million. The decrease of $0.3 million was mainly driven by a $0.2 million reduction in equity in income in Capital Bank, NA and $0.1 million of merger related expenses stemming from professional service expenses.

Due to the Merger discussed above and the resulting deconsolidation of GreenBank on September 7, 2011, the operating results for the second quarter of 2012 do not include the results of GreenBank and therefore are generally not comparable to results for the second quarter of 2011. 

The Predecessor Company reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $12.4 million for the second quarter of 2011. The loss reported in the second quarter of 2011 was primarily due to a $14.3 million provision for loan losses and $6.3 million in foreclosed asset related expenses.

Predecessor Company net interest margin for the second quarter of 2011 was 3.91%. Subsequent to the deconsolidation of GreenBank on September 7, 2011, the net interest margin is not meaningful as the Company has no interest earning assets.

Potential Merger of the Company and CBF

On September 8, 2011, the Boards of Directors of CBF and the Company approved and adopted a merger agreement. The merger agreement provides for the merger, following the receipt of shareholder approval by the Company's shareholders (including CBF), of the Company with and into CBF, with CBF continuing as the surviving entity.

In the merger, each share of the Company's common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the completion of the merger, except for shares for which appraisal rights are properly exercised and certain shares held by CBF or the Company, will be converted into the right to receive 0.0915 of a share of CBF Class A common stock. No fractional shares of Class A common stock will be issued in connection with the merger, and holders of the Company's common stock will be entitled to receive cash in lieu thereof.

Since CBF is the majority shareholder of the Company, CBF will be able to determine the outcome of the shareholder vote needed to approve the merger.
