PEOPLES FINANCIAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 and 2011

 

Basis of Presentation

1. Basis of Presentation:

Peoples Financial Corporation (the “Company”) is a one-bank holding company headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. Its two operating subsidiaries are The Peoples Bank, Biloxi, Mississippi (the “Bank”), and PFC Service Corp. Its principal subsidiary is The Peoples Bank, Biloxi, Mississippi, which provides a full range of banking, financial and trust services to state, county and local government entities and individuals and small and commercial businesses operating in those portions of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama which are within a fifty mile radius of the Waveland, Wiggins and Gautier branches, the Bank’s three most outlying locations (the “trade area”).

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contain all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), the financial position of the Company and its subsidiaries as of September 30, 2012 and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the periods presented. The interim financial information should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s 2011 Annual Report and Form 10-K.

The results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Material estimates common to the banking industry that are particularly susceptible to significant change in the near term include, but are not limited to, the determination of the allowance for loan losses, the valuation of other real estate acquired in connection with foreclosure or in satisfaction of loans and valuation allowances associated with the realization of deferred tax assets, which are based on future taxable income.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform with GAAP and general practices within the banking industry. There have been no material changes or developments in the application of principles or in our evaluation of the accounting estimates and the underlying assumptions or methodologies that we believe to be Critical Accounting Policies as disclosed in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment on a monthly basis. In performing this evaluation, the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than cost, the fact that the Company’s securities are primarily issued by U.S. Treasury and U.S. Government Agencies and the cause of the decline in value are considered. In addition, the Company does not intend to sell and it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell these securities before maturity. While some available for sale securities have been sold for liquidity purposes or for gains, the Company has traditionally held its securities, including those classified as available for sale, until maturity. As a result of the evaluation of these securities, the Company has determined that the unrealized losses summarized in the tables above are not deemed to be other-than-temporary.

Proceeds from sales of available for sale debt securities were $63,339,638 and $49,589,184 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Available for sale debt securities were sold and called for realized gains of $1,300,547 and $793,527 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

The Company monitors the credit quality of its loan portfolio through the use of a loan grading system. A score of 1 – 5 is assigned to the loan on factors including repayment ability, trends in net worth and/or financial condition of the borrower and guarantors, employment stability, management ability, loan to value fluctuations, the type and structure of the loan, conformity of the loan to bank policy and payment performance. Based on the total score, a loan grade of A - F is applied. A grade of A will generally be applied to loans for customers that are well known to the Company and that have excellent sources of repayment. A grade of B will generally be applied to loans for customers that have excellent sources of repayment which have no identifiable risk of collection. A grade of C will generally be applied to loans for customers that have adequate sources of repayment which have little identifiable risk of collection. Loans with a grade of C may be placed on the watch list if weaknesses are not resolved which could result in potential loss. A grade of D will generally be applied to loans for customers that are inadequately protected by current sound net worth, paying capacity of the borrower, or pledged collateral. Loans with a grade of D have unsatisfactory characteristics such as cash flow deficiencies, bankruptcy filing by the borrower or dependence on the sale of collateral for the primary source of repayment, causing more than acceptable levels of risk. Loans 60 to 89 days past due receive a grade of D. A grade of E will generally be applied to loans for customers with weaknesses inherent in the “D” classification and in which collection or liquidation in full is questionable. All loans 90 days or more past due are rated E. A grade of F is applied to loans which are considered uncollectible and of such little value that their continuance in an active bank is not warranted. Loans with this grade are charged off, even though partial or full recovery may be possible in the future. All loans 180 days or more past due are rated F and charged off unless the Bank is in the process of collection.

Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures

10. Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures:

The Company utilizes fair value measurements to record fair value adjustments to certain assets and liabilities and to determine fair value disclosures. Available for sale securities are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. Additionally, from time to time, the Company may be required to record other assets at fair value on a non-recurring basis, such as impaired loans and ORE. These non-recurring fair value adjustments typically involve application of lower of cost or market accounting or write-downs of individual assets. Additionally, the Company is required to disclose, but not record, the fair value of other financial instruments.

Fair Value Hierarchy

The Company groups assets and liabilities at fair value in three levels, based on the markets in which the assets and liabilities are traded and the reliability of the assumptions used to determine fair value. These levels are:

Level 1 - Valuation is based upon quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets.

Level 2 - Valuation is based upon quoted market prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market.

Level 3 – Valuation is generated from model-based techniques that use at least one significant assumption not observable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Valuation techniques include the use of option pricing models, discounted cash flow models and similar techniques.

Following is a description of valuation methodologies used to determine the fair value of financial assets and liabilities.

Cash and Due from Banks

The carrying amount shown as cash and due from banks approximates fair value.

Available for Sale Securities

The fair value of available for sale securities is based on quoted market prices. The Company’s available for sale securities are reported at their estimated fair value, which is determined utilizing several sources. The primary source is Interactive Data Corporation, which utilizes pricing models that vary based on asset class and include available trade, bid and other market information and whose methodology includes broker quotes, proprietary models and vast descriptive databases. The other source for determining fair value is matrix pricing, which is a mathematical technique used widely in the industry to value debt securities without relying exclusively on quoted prices for the specific securities but rather by relying on the securities’ relationship to other benchmark securities. All of the Company’s available for sale securities are Level 2 assets.

Held to Maturity Securities

The fair value of held to maturity securities is based on quoted market prices.

 

22


Other Investments

The carrying amount shown as other investments approximates fair value.

Federal Home Loan Bank Stock

The carrying amount shown as Federal Home Loan Bank Stock approximates fair value.

Loans

The fair value of fixed rate loans is estimated by discounting the future cash flows using the current rates at which similar loans would be made to borrowers with similar credit ratings for the remaining maturities. The cash flows considered in computing the fair value of such loans are segmented into categories relating to the nature of the contract and collateral based on contractual principal maturities. Appropriate adjustments are made to reflect probable credit losses. Cash flows have not been adjusted for such factors as prepayment risk or the effect of the maturity of balloon notes. The fair value of floating rate loans is estimated to be its carrying value. At each reporting period, the Company determines which loans are impaired. Accordingly, the Company’s impaired loans are reported at their estimated fair value on a non-recurring basis. An allowance for each impaired loan, which are generally collateral-dependent, is calculated based on the fair value of its collateral. The fair value of the collateral is based on appraisals performed by third-party valuation specialists. Factors including the assumptions and techniques utilized by the appraiser are considered by Management. If the recorded investment in the impaired loan exceeds the measure of fair value of the collateral, a valuation allowance is recorded as a component of the allowance for loan losses. The Company records impaired loans as a non-recurring Level 3 asset.

Other Real Estate

In the course of lending operations, Management may determine that it is necessary to foreclose on the related collateral. Other real estate acquired through foreclosure is carried at fair value, less estimated costs to sell. The fair value of the collateral is based on appraisals performed by third-party valuation specialists. Factors including the assumptions and techniques utilized by the appraiser are considered by Management. If the current appraisal is more than one year old and/or the loan balance is more than $200,000, a new appraisal is obtained. Otherwise, the Bank’s in-house property evaluator and Management will determine the fair value of the collateral, based on comparable sales, market conditions, Management’s plans for disposition and other estimates of fair value obtained from principally independent sources, adjusted for estimated selling costs. The Company records other real estate as a non-recurring Level 3 asset.

Cash Surrender Value of Life Insurance

The carrying amount of cash surrender value of bank-owned life insurance approximates fair value.

Deposits

The fair value of non-interest bearing demand and interest bearing savings and demand deposits is the amount reported in the financial statements. The fair value of time deposits is estimated by discounting the cash flows using current rates of time deposits with similar remaining maturities. The cash flows considered in computing the fair value of such deposits are based on contractual maturities, since approximately 98% of time deposits provide for automatic renewal at current interest rates.

 

23


Federal Funds Purchased and Securities Sold under Agreements to Repurchase

The carrying amount shown as federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase approximates fair value.

Borrowings from Federal Home Loan Bank

The fair value of FHLB fixed rate borrowings is estimated using discounted cash flows based on current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements. The Company has no FHLB variable rate borrowings.

Commitments to Extend Credit and Standby Letters of Credit

Because commitments to extend credit and standby letters of credit are generally short-term and at variable rates, the contract value and estimated value associated with these instruments are immaterial.

Item 2: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

GENERAL

The Company is a one-bank holding company headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. It has two operating subsidiaries, PFC Service Corp., an inactive company, and The Peoples Bank, Biloxi, Mississippi (the “Bank”). The Bank provides a full range of banking, financial and trust services to state, county and local government entities and individuals and small and commercial businesses operating in its trade area.

The following presents Management’s discussion and analysis of the consolidated financial condition and results of operations of Peoples Financial Corporation and Subsidiaries. These comments should be considered in combination with the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report on Form 10-Q and the Consolidated Financial Statements, Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Forward-Looking Information

Congress passed the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995 in an effort to encourage corporations to provide information about a company’s anticipated future financial performance. This act provides a safe harbor for such disclosure which protects the companies from unwarranted litigation if actual results are different from management expectations. This report contains forward-looking statements and reflects industry conditions, company performance and financial results. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties which could cause the Company’s actual results and experience to differ from the anticipated results and expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements. Such factors and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: changes in interest rates and market prices, changes in local economic and business conditions, increased competition for deposits and loans, a deviation in actual experience from the underlying assumptions used to determine and establish the allowance for loan losses, changes in the availability of funds resulting from reduced liquidity, changes in government regulations and acts of terrorism, weather or other events beyond the Company’s control.

New Accounting Pronouncements

There were no new accounting standards updates issued during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The Company did implement the disclosure requirements relating to the presentation of comprehensive income as set forth in Accounting Standards Update 2011 - 5.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires Management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company evaluates these estimates and assumptions on an on-going basis using historical experience and other factors, including the current economic environment. We adjust such estimates and assumptions when facts and circumstances dictate. Certain critical accounting policies affect the more significant estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

 

27


Allowance for loan losses:

The Company’s most critical accounting policy relates to its allowance for loan losses (“ALL”), which reflects the estimated losses resulting from the inability of its borrowers to make loan payments. The ALL is established and maintained at an amount sufficient to cover the estimated loss associated with the loan portfolio of the Company as of the date of determination. Credit losses arise not only from credit risk, but also from other risks inherent in the lending process including, but not limited to, collateral risk, operation risk, concentration risk and economic risk. As such, all related risks of lending are considered when assessing the adequacy of the ALL. On a quarterly basis, Management estimates the probable level of losses to determine whether the allowance is adequate to absorb reasonably foreseeable, anticipated losses in the existing portfolio based on our past loan loss experience, known and inherent risk in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrowers’ ability to repay and the estimated value of any underlying collateral and current economic conditions. Management believes that the ALL is adequate and appropriate for all periods presented in these financial statements. If there was a deterioration of any of the factors considered by Management in evaluating the ALL, the estimate of loss would be updated, and additional provisions for loan losses may be required. The analysis divides the portfolio into two segments: a pool analysis of loans based upon a five year average loss history which is updated on a quarterly basis and which may be adjusted by qualitative factors by loan type and a specific reserve analysis for those loans considered impaired under generally accepted accounting principles. All credit relationships with an outstanding balance of $100,000 or greater that are included in Management’s loan watch list are individually reviewed for impairment. All losses are charged to the ALL when the loss actually occurs or when a determination is made that a loss is likely to occur; recoveries are credited to the ALL at the time of receipt.

Employee Benefit Plans:

Employee benefit plan liabilities and pension costs are determined utilizing actuarially determined present value calculations. The valuation of the benefit obligation and net periodic expense is considered critical, as it requires Management and its actuaries to make estimates regarding the amount and timing of expected cash outflows including assumptions about mortality, expected service periods and the rate of compensation increases.

Income Taxes:

GAAP requires the asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for deferred income taxes. We use the asset and liability method of accounting for deferred income taxes and provide deferred income taxes for all significant income tax temporary differences. As part of the process of preparing our consolidated financial statements, the Company is required to estimate our income taxes in each of the jurisdictions in which we operate. This process involves estimating our actual current tax exposure together with assessing temporary differences resulting from differing treatment of items, such as the provision for loan losses, for tax and financial reporting purposes. These differences result in deferred tax assets and liabilities that are included in our consolidated statement of condition. We must also assess the likelihood that our deferred tax assets will be recovered from future taxable income, and to the extent we believe that recovery is not likely, we

 

28


must establish a valuation allowance. Significant management judgment is required in determining our provision for income taxes, our deferred tax assets and liabilities and any valuation allowance recorded against our net deferred tax assets. To the extent the Company establishes a valuation allowance or adjusts this allowance in a period, we must include an expense within the tax provisions in the statement of income.

OVERVIEW

The Company is a community bank serving the financial and trust needs of its customers in its trade area of south Mississippi, southeast Louisiana and southwest Alabama. Although Hurricane Isaac struck the trade area in August of 2012, there was minimal impact to the Company and its customers. Maintaining a strong core deposit base and providing commercial and real estate lending in our trade area are the traditional focuses of the Company. Growth has largely been achieved through de novo branching activity, and it is expected that these strategies will continue to be emphasized in the future.

Net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $749,560 compared with $577,676 for the third quarter of 2011. While non-interest income decreased $656,735 in 2012 as compared with 2011, net interest income increased $190,098 and non-interest expense decreased $833,521 and income taxes increased $198,000 as taxable income increased. Interest expense decreased as the Company was able to reduce its cost of funds. Results for 2011 included increased gains on sales and calls of securities and the gain on death benefits from life insurance as compared with 2012. During 2012, the Company had losses on its other investments. Non-interest expense decreased in 2012 as a result of the impact of the voluntary early retirement program and decreased costs associated with foreclosed property.

Net income for the first nine months of 2012 was $1,816,069 compared with $1,825,093 for the first nine months of 2011. While non-interest income decreased $114,632 in 2012 as compared with 2011, the provision for loan losses increased $640,000 and non-interest expense decreased $1,211,181 and income tax benefit decreased $393,000 as taxable income increased. Results for 2012 included increased gains on sales and calls of securities and a loss on the Company’s other investments. During 2011, the Company had a gain on death benefits from life insurance. Non-interest expense decreased in 2012 as salaries and employee benefits decreased as a result of the impact of the voluntary early retirement program and other expense decreased as costs associated with foreclosed property declined. These decreases in non-interest expense were partially offset by an increase in data processing costs as the Company outsourced its computer operations in June of 2011.

Monitoring asset quality, estimating potential losses in our loan portfolio and addressing non-performing loans continue to be emphasized during these difficult economic times. Borrowers’ ability to repay has been significantly impacted by these conditions, which has resulted in nonaccrual loans totaling $53,918,000 and $57,592,715 at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. Most of these loans are collateral-dependent, and the Company has rigorously evaluated the value of its collateral to determine potential losses. During the second quarter of 2012,

 

29


the Company increased the specific reserve on one credit relationship by $800,000 as well as reporting a number of other smaller adjustments in specific reserves to other loans. As a result, the provision for loan losses increased to $2,371,000 for the first nine months of 2012 from $1,731,000 for the first nine months of 2011. The provision for loan losses was $541,000 and $544,000 for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Total assets at September 30, 2012 increased $9,282,195 as compared with December 31, 2011.

Available for sale securities increased $10,577,092 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011. Securities were purchased as public fund balances increased significantly during the first quarter of 2012. Balances in our non-deposit sweep accounts, reported as federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase, decreased $19,525,221 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011, as these customers reallocate their balances to deposit accounts or due to normal seasonal activity.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net Interest Income

Net interest income, the amount by which interest income on loans, investments and other interest earning assets exceeds interest expense on deposits and other borrowed funds, is the single largest component of the Company’s income. Management’s objective is to provide the largest possible amount of income while balancing interest rate, credit, liquidity and capital risk. Changes in the volume and mix of interest earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities combined with changes in market rates of interest directly affect net interest income.

Quarter Ended September 30, 2012 as Compared with Quarter Ended September 30, 2011

The Company’s average interest earning assets increased approximately $18,756,000, or 3%, from approximately $721,117,000 for the third quarter of 2011 to approximately $739,873,000 for the third quarter of 2012. The Company’s average balance sheet increased as new loans have outpaced principal payments, maturities, charge-offs and foreclosures relating to existing loans and proceeds from maturing taxable available for sale securities were used to paydown borrowings.

The average yield on earning assets decreased by 12 basis points, from 3.51% for the third quarter of 2011 to 3.39% for the third quarter of 2012, with the biggest impact to the yield on taxable available for sale securities. The Company’s investment and liquidity strategy has been to invest most of the proceeds from sales, calls and maturities of securities in similar securities. As a result, the yield on taxable available for sale securities decreased from 1.95% for the third quarter of 2011 to 1.65% for the third quarter of 2012. The Company has more recently purchased securities with maturities of up to fifteen years, with call provisions, to improve its yield on these assets. Future security purchases may be of shorter duration in anticipation of rising rates in 2014. The yield on loans has decreased due to the increase in loans on nonaccrual during the last quarter of 2011 and the first nine months of 2012.

Average interest bearing liabilities increased approximately $5,170,000, or 1%, from approximately $586,589,000 for the third quarter of 2011 to approximately $591,759,000 for the third quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily related to borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank, which increased due to the liquidity needs of the bank subsidiary.

 

30


The average rate paid on interest bearing liabilities decreased 18 basis points, from .49% for the third quarter of 2011 to .31% for the third quarter of 2012. Rates paid on deposit accounts and non-deposit accounts, which are reported as federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase, have decreased in 2012. The current unprecedented low rate environment which exists on a national and local level has caused customers to tolerate lower interest rates in return for less risk. The Company believes that it is unlikely that its cost of funds can be materially reduced further; however, any opportunity to do so will be considered.

The Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis, which is net income as a percentage of average earning assets, was 3.14% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, up 3 basis points from 3.11% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 as Compared with Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011

The Company’s average interest earning assets increased approximately $36,139,000, or 5%, from approximately $722,325,000 for the first nine months of 2011 to approximately $758,464,000 for the first nine months of 2012. The Company’s average loan balance increased as new loans have outpaced principal payments, maturities, charge-offs and foreclosures relating to existing loans.

The average yield on earning assets decreased by 34 basis points, from 3.70% for the first nine months of 2011 to 3.36% for the first nine months of 2012, with the biggest impact to the yield on taxable available for sale securities. The Company’s investment and liquidity strategy has been to invest most of the proceeds from sales, calls and maturities of securities in similar securities. As a result, the yield on taxable available for sale securities decreased from 2.27% for the first nine months of 2011 to 1.75% for the first nine months of 2012. The Company has more recently purchased securities with maturities of up to fifteen years, with call provisions, to improve its yield on these assets. Future security purchases may be of shorter duration in anticipation of rising rates in 2014. The yield on loans has decreased due to the increase in loans on nonaccrual during the last quarter of 2011 and the first nine months of 2012.

Average interest bearing liabilities increased approximately $27,712,000, or 5%, from approximately $588,437,000 for the first nine months of 2011 to approximately $616,149,000 for the first nine months of 2012. The increase was primarily related to borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank, which increased due to the liquidity needs of the bank subsidiary.

The average rate paid on interest bearing liabilities decreased 22 basis points, from .57% for the first nine months of 2011 to .35% for the first nine months of 2012. Rates paid on deposit accounts and non-deposit accounts, which are reported as federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase, have decreased in 2012. The current unprecedented low rate environment which exists on a national and local level has caused customers to tolerate lower interest rates in return for less risk. The Company believes that it is unlikely that its cost of funds can be materially reduced further; however, any opportunity to do so will be considered.

 

31


The Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis, which is net income as a percentage of average earning assets, was 3.07% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, down 17 basis points from 3.24% for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

The tables on the following pages analyze the changes in tax-equivalent net interest income for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 and the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses

In the normal course of business, the Company assumes risk in extending credit to its customers. This credit risk is managed through compliance with the loan policy, which is approved by the Board of Directors. The policy establishes guidelines relating to underwriting standards, including but not limited to financial analysis, collateral valuation, lending limits, pricing considerations and loan grading. A loan review process further assists with evaluating credit quality and assessing potential performance issues. Loan delinquencies and deposit overdrafts are closely monitored in order to identify developing problems as early as possible. The Company monitors its relationships with its loan customers in concentrated industries such as gaming and hotel/motel, as well as the exposure for out of area, land, development, construction and commercial real estate loans, and their direct and indirect impact on its operations on a monthly basis. A watch list of credits which pose a potential loss to the Company is prepared based on the loan grading system. This list forms the foundation of the Company’s allowance for loan loss computation.

Management relies on its guidelines and existing methodology to monitor the performance of its loan portfolio and identify and estimate potential losses based on the best available information. The potential effect resulting from the economic downturn on a national and local level, the decline in real estate values and actual losses incurred by the Company were key factors in our analysis. Much of the Company’s loan portfolio is collateral-dependent, requiring careful consideration of changes in the value of the collateral.

 

36


The Company’s on-going, systematic evaluation resulted in the Company recording a provision for loan losses of $541,000 and $544,000 for the third quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $2,371,000 and $1,731,000 for the first nine months of 2012 and 2011, respectively. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans was 1.62% and 1.75% at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. The Company’s evaluation includes evaluating the current values of collateral securing all nonaccrual loans. Even though nonaccrual loans grew to $53,918,000 and $57,592,715 at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, specific reserves of only $485,300 and $2,106,729, respectively, have been allocated to these loans as collateral values appear sufficient to cover loan losses or the loan balances have been charged down to their realizable value. The Company believes that its allowance for loan losses is appropriate as of September 30, 2012.

The allowance for loan losses is an estimate, and as such, events may occur in the future which may affect its accuracy. The Company anticipates that it is possible that additional information will be gathered in future quarters which may require an adjustment to the allowance for loan losses. Management will continue to closely monitor its portfolio and take such action as it deems appropriate to accurately report its financial condition and results of operations.

Non-interest income

Non-interest income decreased $656,735 for the third quarter of 2012 as compared with the third quarter of 2011. Trust department income and fees increased $78,204 as a result of fees relating to several large estates. During the third quarter of 2012, gains from sales and calls of securities decreased $449,981 in comparison with the third quarter of 2011 as sales were executed when proceeds would be maximized. Results for the third quarter of 2012 included a loss on other investments of $47,637 as well as a loss from impairment of these investments of $180,000. Gains from the redemption of life insurance were $80,621 for the third quarter of 2011.

Non-interest income decreased $114,632 for the first nine months of 2012 as compared with the first nine months of 2011. Trust department income and fees increased $80,173 as a result of fees relating to several large estates. During the first nine months of 2012, gains from sales and calls of securities increased $507,020 in comparison with the first nine months of 2011 as sales were executed when proceeds would be maximized. The Company had a loss on other investments of $84,480 in 2012 as compared with income of $10,124 in 2011. There was also a loss from impairment of other investments of $180,000 in 2012. Gains from the redemption of life insurance were $469,740 for the first nine months of 2011.

Non-interest expense

Total non-interest expense decreased $833,521 for the third quarter of 2012 as compared with the third quarter of 2011. Salaries and employee benefits decreased $430,136; data processing expenses increased $76,245 and other expenses decreased $528,026 for the third quarter of 2012 as compared with the second quarter of 2011.

 

37


Salaries decreased $194,341 in the third quarter of 2012 as compared with the third quarter of 2011 as the employee census continues to decrease from attrition and the impact of the 2011 voluntary early retirement package. Expenses relating to the retiree health plan decreased $227,460 as a result of amendments made to the plan which require plan participants to utilize drug benefits and health insurance coverage available under Medicare.

Data processing costs increased in 2012 as a result of the outsourcing of these activities during the second quarter of 2011.

Included in other expense in 2012 are expenses relating to the ORE portfolio which decreased $539,362 as compared with 2011. In 2011, the Company recorded write downs of several of these properties to their fair value, less estimated cost to sell.

Total non-interest expense decreased $1,211,181 for the first nine months of 2012 as compared with the first nine months of 2011. Salaries and employee benefits decreased $882,126; equipment rentals, depreciation and maintenance decreased $177,124; data processing expenses increased $519,974 and other expenses decreased $745,419 for the first nine months of 2012 as compared with the first nine months of 2011.

Salaries decreased $527,070 in the first nine months of 2012 as compared with the first nine months of 2011 as the employee census continues to decrease from attrition and the impact of the 2011 voluntary early retirement package. Expenses relating to the retiree health plan decreased $413,587 as a result of amendments made to the plan which require plan participants to utilize drug benefits and health insurance coverage available under Medicare.

Equipment maintenance and servicing decreased $94,793 in 2012 due to the timing of payment for these services. Depreciation costs have decreased by $108,000 in 2012, as computer and other equipment acquired after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 are now fully depreciated.

Data processing costs increased in 2012 as a result of the outsourcing of these activities during the second quarter of 2011.

Included in other expense are expenses relating to the ORE portfolio which decreased $493,337 in 2012 a result of the write down of several of these properties to their fair value, less estimated cost to sell in 2011. The remaining net increase in other expense is primarily due to the timing of various services.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Available for sale securities increased $10,577,092 at September 30, 2012, compared with December 31, 2011, as a large increase in funds in a non-deposit product during the first quarter were invested in these securities.

Held to maturity securities increased $5,561,887 at September 30, 2012, compared with December 31, 2011, as the Company opted to classify some of its investment purchases during the current year as held to maturity.

The investment in Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) stock increased $225,300 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011 so that the Company could increase its borrowing capacity from the FHLB during the period.

Other real estate (“ORE”) increased $1,215,296 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011. Loans totaling $2,545,780 were transferred into ORE while $1,177,184 was sold for a loss of $27,123 and write downs of ORE to fair value of $153,300 were recorded during the first nine months of 2012.

Prepaid FDIC assessments decreased by $1,234,295 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011 as a result of the amortization of these costs.

Other assets increased $780,461 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011 primarily as income taxes receivable increased $180,000 due to overpayments during 2011, corporate trust fees accrued for 2012 increased $355,623 and deferred taxes increased $186,000. Deferred taxes were impacted by the increase in liabilities for employee benefit plans and depreciation.

 

39


Total deposits increased $29,577,160 at September 30, 2012, as compared with December 31, 2011. Typically, significant increases or decreases in total deposits and/or significant fluctuations among the different types of deposits from quarter to quarter are anticipated by Management as customers in the casino industry and county and municipal entities reallocate their resources periodically.

Federal funds purchased and securities sold under agreements to repurchase decreased $19,525,221 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011 as several county and municipal entities decreased their balances in a non-deposit account during 2012.

Borrowings from the FHLB decreased $2,856,258 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011 based on the liquidity needs of the bank subsidiary.

Employee and director benefit plans liabilities increased $899,921 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011 due to the deferred compensation benefits earned by officers and directors during 2012.

Other liabilities decreased $529,772 at September 30, 2012 as compared with December 31, 2011 as a result of the payment of officer incentives and director fees which had been accrued at December 31, 2011.

SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY AND CAPITAL ADEQUACY

Strength, security and stability have been the hallmark of the Company since its founding in 1985 and of its bank subsidiary since its founding in 1896. A strong capital foundation is fundamental to the continuing prosperity of the Company and the security of its customers and shareholders.

The Company and the Bank are subject to regulatory capital adequacy requirements imposed by the federal banking agencies. Under capital adequacy guidelines and the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action, specific capital guidelines that involve quantitative measures of the bank subsidiary’s assets and certain off-balance sheet items, adjusted for credit risk, as calculated under regulatory accounting practices must be met. The risk-based capital standards currently in effect are designed to make regulatory capital requirements more sensitive to differences in risk profiles among bank holding companies and banks and to account for off-balance sheet exposure. Quantitative measures established by regulation to ensure capital adequacy require the Company and Bank to maintain minimum amounts and ratios of Total and Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets, and Tier 1 capital to average assets.

As of September 30, 2012, the most recent notification from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation categorized the bank subsidiary as well capitalized under the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action. To be categorized as well capitalized, the bank subsidiary must have a Total risk-based capital ratio of 10.00% or greater, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 6.00% or greater and a Leverage capital ratio of 5.00% or greater. There are no conditions or events since that notification that Management believes have changed the bank subsidiary’s category.

In addition to monitoring its risk-based capital ratios, the Company also determines the primary capital ratio on a quarterly basis. This ratio was 14.49% at September 30, 2012, which is well above the regulatory minimum of 6.00%. Management continues to emphasize the importance of maintaining the appropriate capital levels of the Company and has established the goal of maintaining its primary capital ratio at 8.00%, which is the minimum requirement for classification as being “well-capitalized” by the banking regulatory authorities.

LIQUIDITY

Liquidity represents the Company’s ability to adequately provide funds to satisfy demands from depositors, borrowers and other commitments by either converting assets to cash or accessing new or existing sources of funds. Management monitors these funds requirements in such a manner as to satisfy these demands and provide the maximum earnings on its earning assets. The Company

manages and monitors its liquidity position through a number of methods, including through the computation of liquidity risk targets and the preparation of various analyses of its funding sources and utilization of those sources on a monthly basis. The Company also uses proforma liquidity projections which are updated on a monthly basis in the management of its liquidity needs and also conducts periodic contingency testing on its liquidity plan.

Deposits, payments of principal and interest on loans, proceeds from maturities of investment securities and earnings on investment securities are the principal sources of funds for the Company. Borrowings from the FHLB, federal funds sold and federal funds purchased are utilized by the Company to manage its daily liquidity position. The Company has also been approved to participate in the Federal Reserve Bank’s Discount Window Primary Credit Program, which it intends to use only as a contingency.

REGULATORY MATTERS

During 2009, Management identified opportunities for improving risk management, addressing asset quality concerns, managing concentrations of credit risk and ensuring sufficient liquidity at the Bank as a result of its own investigation as well as examinations performed by certain bank regulatory agencies. In concert with the regulators, the Company and the Bank identified specific corrective steps and actions to enhance its risk management, asset quality and liquidity policies, controls and procedures. The Company and the Bank may not declare or pay any cash dividends without the prior written approval of their regulators.

Item 4: Controls and Procedures

As of September 30, 2012, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e)). Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms.

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the period ended September 30, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
