Press Release Cortland Bancorp Reports Fourth
Quarter and Year to Date 2010 Earnings
Results
Cortland Bancorp (the “Company;” OTCBB: CLDB) announced today it’s fourth quarter and year end results for the period ending December 31, 2010. The Company reported net income of $1.036 million or $0.23 per share for the quarter ending December 31, 2010. This compares to a net income of $17,000 for the quarter ending September 30, 2010 and net income of $643,000 or $0.14 per share for the same period in 2009.
For the year ending December 31, 2010, the Company reported net income of $3.271 million or $.72 per share, compared to a net loss of $(6.335) million or $(1.40) per share for year ended December 31, 2009.
Summary points regarding fourth quarter and year ended 2010 results are as follows:
    Core earnings for the year which exclude non-recurring items such as impairment loss and gain on securities sales were $4.2 million compared to $3.5 million for 2009, an increase of 20%.
 
    The Company’s recognition of non-cash pre-tax other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) losses on investment securities fell dramatically for the year to $2.7 million versus $14.5 million in 2009. The OTTI loss for the three-month period ending December 31, 2010 was $91,000 compared to $512,000 for the same three month period in 2009.
 
    Net interest margin of 3.67% for the quarter is an improvement on both a linked quarter basis (3.52%) and year-over-year (3.30%) as the Company continues to optimally manage its balance sheet in this historically low interest rate environment. Net interest margin for the full year 2010 was 3.59% or 40 basis points higher than the 3.19% in 2009.
 
    The Company continues to excel in managing risks in the loan portfolio as asset quality measures are among the best for banks with similar asset totals. Net loan charge-offs were .19% of average loans in both 2010 and 2009 and the allowance for loan loss (ALLL) to total loans ratio was .94% and .98% at the 2010 and 2009 year end respectively. On a comparative basis with banks within the Company’s peer group, net loan charge-offs to average loans at the December 2010 and 2009 year ends, were .99% and 1.12%, more than five times that of the Company. At December 31, 2010 and 2009, the peer group also reported an ALLL to total loan ratio of 1.94% and 1.87% respectively. The Company’s allowance for loan losses covers 65% of nonperforming loans at December 31, 2010.
