Yadkin Valley Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: YAVY), the holding company for Yadkin Valley Bank and Trust Company, announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011. Net income available to common shareholders was $2.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $20.9 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011, and a net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2010. Net income for the quarter included significant transactions including: a $1.6 million gain on sale of securities, $594,000 decrease in FDIC expense resulting from a change in assessments, $496,000 decrease in compensation expense due to the termination of certain employee benefits, and a reduction in income related to the adjustment of nonaccrual interest for prior periods of $557,000. Excluding these significant items, net income before taxes and preferred dividends was $4.0 million for the third quarter.

Joe Towell, President and CEO of Yadkin Valley Financial, commented, "We have been executing our strategic plan for the Company over the past several quarters, and we have made great progress in expense reduction and business reorganization. This quarter, we are beginning to see the effects of management's implementation of our strategic plan in our financial results. We are pleased to see a return to core profitability due to our concentrated efforts to increase our net interest margin and manage expenses. While we did experience several significant transactions this quarter, excluding those transactions we recognized $4.0 million in income before taxes and preferred dividends. As part of our expense reduction plan, we completed the consolidation of eight branches, the reorganization of our mortgage function, and the displacement of approximately 175 employees. While these have been difficult decisions, they are in the best long-term interest of the Company and its shareholders.

"As we announced last quarter, we exited our wholesale mortgage business and reorganized our mortgage function. This has resulted in not only cost savings, but also an increase in operational efficiency and reduced risk. We are excited to see our retail mortgage production and revenue increase this quarter.

"We are happy to report decreased charge-offs this quarter, down $6.7 million from the second quarter. While we are still working through problem loans, we are encouraged by indications of stabilizing credit quality.

"Beginning in the fourth quarter of this year, management is initiating a new sales and service training curriculum focused on improving our customer delivery and experience. We are excited about this new program and look forward to reporting the results of these efforts.

"Finally, we continue to be keenly focused on our capital management strategy. Management and the Board will continue to evaluate strategic capital options that could provide even greater strength to the Company in the future."

Third Quarter 2011 Financial Highlights

Asset Quality

Nonperforming loans, which include loans in nonaccrual status, increased by $1.9 million, to $70.8 million, or 4.76% of total gross loans at September 30, 2011, compared to $68.9 million, or 4.50% of total gross loans at June 30, 2011. Nonperforming loans as a percentage of gross loans were elevated slightly due to the continued decrease in gross loans, down $44.6 million compared to June 30, 2011 and an increase in troubled debt restructured loans ("TDRs"). Although nonperforming loans continue to increase due to an increase in TDRs, over 38% of nonperforming loans were held at fair market value.

Other Real Estate Owned ("OREO") totaled $21.3 million at September 30, 2011, a decrease of $700,000 compared to $22.0 million at June 30, 2011. This decrease in OREO was mostly due to the sale of 24 properties totaling $3.1 million during the third quarter and additional write downs of $1.0 million, offset by the addition of $3.1 million in new properties. Total nonperforming assets at September 30, 2011 were $92.1 million, or 4.50% of total assets, an increase of $1.1 million from June 30, 2011.

During the third quarter of 2011, the provision for loan losses was $2.0 million, a decrease of $8.4 million from the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in provision was driven mostly by the decrease in loan charge-offs for the third quarter. At September 30, 2011, the allowance for loan losses was $33.7 million, compared to $35.7 million at June 30, 2011. Net charge-offs for the third quarter totaled $3.9 million, or 1.04% of average loans on an annualized basis, a decrease of $6.7 million from the second quarter.

As a percentage of total loans held-for-investment, the allowance for loan losses was 2.29% in the third quarter of 2011, down from 2.37% in the second quarter of 2011. Out of the $33.7 million in total allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2011, the specific allowance for impaired loans accounted for $4.1 million, down from $4.3 million at the end of the second quarter. The specific allowance continues to decrease because 83% of impaired loans are held at fair market value. The remaining general allowance of $29.6 million attributed to unimpaired loans was down from $31.4 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011. This decrease was driven by lower charge offs this quarter in the portfolio, as well as a decrease in criticized, non-impaired (internal risk grades 5, 6, and immaterial 7) loans.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income totaled $15.6 million, a decrease of $678,000 from the second quarter of 2011. The current quarter included an adjustment for interest on nonaccrual loans that lowered interest income and resulted in a net interest margin of 3.29%; however, without this adjustment the net interest margin was 3.41%, which is an 11 basis point increase from the second quarter. In the third quarter, the Company corrected the allocation of interest payments on certain nonaccrual loans that had been modified, which adjusted interest income for the previous five quarters. While the correction in any one quarter was not a material difference, the totality of the correction resulted in a $557,000 decrease in the net interest margin.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income increased $2.0 million, or 59.4%, to $5.3 million compared to $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2011. This increase in non-interest income is primarily due to active portfolio management which resulted in a $1.6 million gain on securities in the third quarter.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense decreased $11.5 million, or 47.0%, to $13.0 million down from $24.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. Several significant transactions contributed to this decrease. Last quarter, we recognized a $4.9 million write-off of goodwill related to our mortgage company. This quarter, we experienced a $496,000 decrease in compensation expense due to the elimination of an employee benefit. We also experienced a change in our FDIC insurance premium calculation, which resulted in $594,000 less in FDIC expense in the third quarter. Excluding these expense reductions, non-interest expense was $14.0 million in the third quarter.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Total assets decreased $33.9 million in the third quarter of 2011. The decrease in total assets was primarily related to the decrease in loans and securities in the third quarter. In addition, total deposits have decreased $236.3 million, or 11.7%, over the first three quarters of 2011. This deposit decrease continues to be mostly higher-cost time deposits, as our non-interest bearing demand deposits continue to increase in volume. Brokered deposits remain a relatively small portion of the Company's funding sources, representing only 2.7% of total deposits at September 30, 2011, a continued decrease from the level at June 30, 2011.

Gross loans have decreased by $163.6 million since the end of 2010. We continue to manage the growth of our loan portfolio, concentrating our lending efforts toward small businesses and owner occupied commercial real estate loans.

The Bank remains well-capitalized for regulatory purposes. As of September 30, 2011, the Bank's leverage ratio, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, and total risk-based capital ratio were 7.58%, 9.72%, and 10.98%, respectively. Leverage ratio, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, and total risk-based capital ratio were 7.90%, 10.18%, and 11.37%, respectively, for the holding company as of September 30, 2011. For capital adequacy purposes, leverage ratio, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, and total risk-based capital ratio must be in excess of 5.00%, 6.00%, and 10.00%, respectively, to be considered well-capitalized. The Bank and holding company capital ratios improved over the previous quarter due to lower average assets and a return to profitability in the current quarter.
