Temecula Valley Bancorp Strengthened Reserves with $7.6 Million Provision in 3Q08
8th Largest SBA 7(a) Lender in the Nation
Maintains Solid Capital Ratios
TEMECULA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--October 30, 2008--Temecula Valley Bancorp Inc. (NASDAQ: TMCV) today reported solid capital ratios, excellent growth in SBA lending, strong liquidity and lower operating expenses. Booking a $7.6 million provision for loan losses resulted in a net loss of $3.6 million, or $0.36 a share, for the third quarter of 2008, compared to a net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.20 per share, with a provision of $5.3 million in the prior linked quarter, and a net income of $2.6 million, or $0.25 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2007 when its provision was $1.1 million. For the first nine months of 2008, after booking a $15.1 million provision for loan losses, the net loss was $4.2 million, or $0.42 per share, compared to net income of $12.0 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2007.
Due to the economic conditions, in early 2008 a strategic decision to shift more emphasis on SBA multi-purpose commercial owner-occupied real estate lending was made. “In less than one year, our SBA group has established itself as one of the most successful SBA lending teams in the country, and we are now the 8th largest SBA lender in the nation based on dollar volume in the 7(a) program,” said Stephen H. Wacknitz, Chairman, President and CEO. “By shifting our focus from construction and land development into SBA lending, with an emphasis on multi-purpose owner-occupied commercial real estate, we are able to better diversify our loan portfolio and build a strong source of fee income from loan servicing and originations.”
Third Quarter 2008 Highlights
- Temecula Valley Bancorp remains well-capitalized, according to regulatory requirements with a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 9.09% and a total capital to risk-adjusted assets of 11.46%.
- For 2008, loans grew 10% to $1.36 billion with SBA loans up 34% and now accounting for 28% of the total portfolio. In addition, SBA related construction loans account for $132.6 million of the total $575.1 million construction loan total at 09/30/08 compared to $120.5 million at 09/30/07 and $120.1 million at 12/31/07.
- The undisbursed portion of total construction loans has decreased dramatically since last year with $335.1 million at September 30, 2007; $321.2 million at December 31, 2007; and $240.5 million at September 30, 2008.
- Operating expenses declined 5% in the third quarter compared to last year and 7% year-to-date compared to last year reflecting a focus on efficiency and cost control.
- The $39.1 million investment securities available for sale are exclusively in SBA Pool Securities and a U.S. Government Agency bond with a short-term maturity. The $2.9 million held-to-maturity investment is a Fannie Mae mortgage-backed security. Temecula Valley does not own any Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac equity securities, nor does it own any sub-prime mortgage-backed bonds.
“Although our capital ratios are strong, we believe the new TARP Capital Purchase Program proposed by the Treasury Department has merit, and we are actively investigating the possibility of participating in this program. Whether funds will be available and what amount of funding will flow to community banks is not clear at this point,” Wacknitz commented. “At the same time, we have been substantially building our reserves and lowering operating expense in order to maintain adequate capital.” Temecula Valley recently announced that its Board of Directors voted to suspend regular quarterly cash dividends on its common stock in order to preserve capital of approximately $1.6 million per year. This action did not affect the recently declared cash dividend of $0.04 per share which was paid on October 15, 2008.
