ROCKFORD, Ill., Feb. 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMCORE Financial, Inc. (Nasdaq:AMFI) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2009. 

 

(Numbers in Thousands, Except Per Share Data)
  4th quarter 2009 YTD 2009 4th quarter 2008 YTD 2008
Net Revenues $35,061 $160,811 $43,873 $206,487
Net Loss ($26,266) ($223,783) ($32,119) ($97,799)

Diluted EPS ($1.14) ($9.78) ($1.42) ($4.32)

AMCORE reported a net loss of ($26.3) million for fourth quarter 2009, compared to a net loss of ($32.1) million in the prior-year period and a net loss of ($156.4) million in the previous quarter. Loss per diluted share was ($1.14) for fourth quarter 2009, compared to ($1.42) per diluted share in fourth quarter 2008, and ($6.81) in the previous quarter. Full year 2009 loss per diluted share was ($9.78) compared to ($4.32) per diluted share in 2008. AMCORE’s net loss for the full year 2009 was ($223.8) million compared to ($97.8) million in 2008. Full year 2009 results include a $118 million charge ($5.16 per diluted share) for a deferred tax valuation allowance taken in the third quarter.

“Our strategy continues to focus on a series of initiatives designed to improve asset quality, capital ratios and operational efficiencies in order to better position AMCORE to attract capital and support our core markets,” said William R. McManaman, Chairman and CEO of AMCORE. “For the first time since fourth quarter 2007, AMCORE realized meaningful credit quality improvements. In the fourth quarter, we were aggressive in our charge-offs and continue to work to reduce our non-accrual loans. Additionally, the cumulative improvement to the bank’s capital position from the actions completed in the fourth quarter and the sale of the Central Illinois branches to be completed by the end of the first quarter 2010 will approximate $95 million in equivalent total risk-based capital.”

The following was accomplished during the quarter.

  • Non-accrual loans decreased $93 million, or 22 percent, compared to the previous quarter.
  • Non-performing loans decreased $81 million, or 19 percent, compared to the previous quarter.
  • The decrease in non-accrual and non-performing loans was achieved, in part, through the highest settlement and collection recoveries in the past two years, which were $31 million in the fourth quarter. 
  • Commercial loans moving from performing to non-performing were at their lowest level in eight quarters at approximately $27 million.
  • Core operating costs, excluding restructuring and loan related costs as well as regular FDIC insurance costs, have declined approximately $30 million on an annualized basis.
  • AMCORE maintained cash equivalents and other liquid assets of approximately $625 million at quarter end, up from $575 million for the previous quarter end, as part of its continued liquidity management efforts.

“These accomplishments represent progress and are the result of our hard work and diligent management of our portfolio,” said Mr. McManaman. “As the economy begins to stabilize, AMCORE’s ability to restructure loans and customers’ ability to repay their debt will improve. We remain committed to delivering the highest quality service to our customers and our employees are dedicated in their efforts to strengthen our Company. We continue to be aware of how important we are to the communities we serve and we are acutely aware of how important they are to us.”

During the quarter, AMCORE continued to take actions to improve its capital ratios and the bank’s total risk-based capital ratio increased to 7.1 percent at December 31, 2009, up from 6.9 percent at September 30, 2009. This improvement in the total capital ratio was less than expected, primarily due to the level of charge-offs and provisions for loan losses. The events during the fourth quarter that contributed to total capital included:

  • The sale of $136 million in non-strategic, non-relationship loans, the equivalent of raising approximately $7 million of capital.
  • The completed sale in November of four rural Wisconsin branches with $87 million in loans, the equivalent of raising approximately $7 million of capital.
  • Recent tax legislation that will result in federal income tax refunds totaling $30.7 million, a direct improvement to capital.

In addition, the recently announced sale of 14 locations to Midland States Bank, Effingham, IL, scheduled to be completed by the end of the first quarter, is expected to improve the bank’s position approximately $50 million in equivalent total risk-based capital.

Headlines

  • Net Interest Income -- Net interest income was $16.3 million or 1.68 percent of average earning assets in fourth quarter 2009, compared to $18.0 million or 1.67 percent of average earning assets in third quarter 2009 and $26.9 million or 2.37 percent of average earning assets in fourth quarter 2008. The decrease in margin from a year ago was primarily due to the cost of increasing liquidity and the affect of shrinking the balance sheet in an effort to reduce non-strategic, non-relationship based credits.
  • Company actions to reduce non-relationship credits and asset sales resulted in a decrease in average loan balances of nine percent, or $292 million, to $2.9 billion compared to third quarter 2009, while ending balances decreased $886 million, or 29 percent, to $2.2 billion. Loans held for investment also declined due to a $491 million reclassification to loans held for sale, primarily related to the recently announced branch sales in Central Illinois.
  • Average bank issued deposits decreased six percent, or $177 million compared to third quarter 2009, while ending balances decreased $296 million, or 10 percent, to $2.6 billion, reflecting $166 million in deposits included in the Wisconsin branch sales. When the Wisconsin branch sales are excluded, ending balances for non-interest and interest bearing deposits remained flat compared to the previous quarter. Deposits of approximately $540 million related to the recently announced branch sale continue to be included in bank issued deposits until closing.
  • Average investment securities and short-term investments decreased a combined $148 million compared to third quarter 2009. The decrease from the previous quarter reflects the usage of investment portfolio proceeds to pay down wholesale funding.
  • Provision for Loan Losses and Credit Quality -- Provision for loan losses was $50.2 million, a $10.1 million decrease from $60.3 million in third quarter 2009 and a $7.3 million decrease from $57.5 million in fourth quarter 2008. 
  • Non-performing loans, net of charge-downs and settlements,were $350 million at December 31, 2009, compared to $431 million at September 30, 2009 and $313 million at December 31, 2008. Non-performing loans include non-accrual loans, loans 90 days past due and still accruing interest, and troubled loans that have been restructured.
  • Delinquencies declined by $3 million, or six percent, to $54 million compared to third quarter 2009, their lowest level since fourth quarter 2006. 
  • Net charge-offs were $64.8 million compared to $59.4 million in third quarter 2009 and $55.9 million in fourth quarter 2008. The increase in net charge-offs primarily reflect losses that were required for non-performing loans that are collateral dependent.
  • The percentage of total non-accrual loans to total loans was 15.0 percent at December 31, 2009, up from 13.7 percent at September 30, 2009 and 8.0 percent at December 31, 2008, due to strategic actions to reduce non-relationship loans, the four Wisconsin branch sales and the recently announced branch sales.
  • The allowance to non-accrual loans was 45 percent at December 31, 2009, up from 39 percent at September 30, 2009 and flat compared to December 31, 2008.
  • The allowance to total loans was 6.74 percent at December 31, 2009, up from 5.35 percent at September 30, 2009 and up from 3.60 percent at December 31, 2008.
  • Non-interest Income -- Non-interest income was $18.8 million in the fourth quarter 2009 compared to $16.7 million in the third quarter 2009 and $16.9 million in the fourth quarter 2008. 
  • The increase is due primarily to a $1.8 million gain on the sale of four Wisconsin branches and the $2.1 million net security gains in fourth quarter 2009 compared to $1.5 million net security gains in third quarter 2009 and $1.0 million in fourth quarter 2008.
  • Operating Expenses -- Operating expenses were $41.8 million in the fourth quarter 2009 compared to $38.7 million in the third quarter 2009 and $40.9 million in the fourth quarter 2008. 
  • Fourth quarter 2009 included $7.3 million of other loan related expenses including processing and collection expenses, foreclosed property expenses and loss reserves on unfunded commitments. This compares to $6.1 million in the third quarter 2009 and $3.9 million in the fourth quarter 2008.
  • Insurance costs, primarily FDIC premiums, were $6.7 million in the fourth quarter 2009 compared to $4.5 million in the third quarter 2009 and $1.5 million in the fourth quarter 2008.
  • Although personnel costs have decreased 37 percent from the same quarter a year ago, total operating expenses have increased by $0.9 million due to higher insurance costs and loan related expenses noted above. Significantly, fourth quarter 2009 included a $2.5 million reversal of previously accrued bonuses and incentives.
  • Capital -- The Bank’s total capital ratio increased to 7.1 percent as of December 31, 2009.
  • The Bank’s total risk-based capital ratio has improved. However, the leverage ratio remains significantly undercapitalized as it is 39 basis points below the undercapitalized category and the Tier 1 ratio fell to undercapitalized. The leverage ratio is a lagging indicator based on average assets, not ending balances, and does not fully reflect actions taken during the fourth quarter.
  • As a result of the leverage ratio remaining significantly undercapitalized, the parent company is in technical default under its credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. AMCORE is and has been current with all its payments due under that facility. AMCORE previously received waivers from JP Morgan on December 18 and July 31 when it was in technical default. Both parties continue to work cooperatively.  
  • As previously reported, on January 8, 2010, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency notified the Bank that its Capital Plan was not accepted and that even if the Bank's capital ratios improve to the undercapitalized category, the Bank will continue to be subject to operational restrictions applicable to significantly undercapitalized institutions until such time as the Bank has submitted to the OCC an acceptable plan.
  • The timing of when the bank becomes adequately capitalized depends on a variety of factors and events, some of which include the benefits of the branch sale being fully realized, economic conditions stabilizing, success in attracting outside capital and future provisions and charge-offs.
  • Pursuing new capital is a critical, ongoing part of the Company’s core strategy to return to long term sustainability as a community bank and executive management continues to hold discussions with numerous capital sources. While the AMCORE management team is exerting maximum effort to attract new capital, the failure to do so during 2010 may impact the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
