IONIA, Mich., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
- 2008 fourth quarter and full-year net loss applicable to common stock of $86.5 million ($3.80 per share) and $88.2 million ($3.88 per share), respectively. Fourth quarter and full year results were impacted by:
-- A non-cash charge of $50.0 million ($1.92 per share after tax) for goodwill impairment. No impact on regulatory capital ratios or tangible equity. -- A non-cash charge of $26.8 million ($1.18 per share) that is included in income tax expense to establish a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. -- A non-cash charge of $4.3 million ($0.12 per share after tax) for impairment of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights. -- Securities losses of $6.9 million ($0.20 per share after tax) for the fourth quarter and $15.0 million ($0.43 per share after tax) for the full year. -- These items total $3.42 per share in the fourth quarter and $3.65 per share for the full year.
- Pre-tax, pre-loan loss provision core operating earnings remain strong and improved in 2008 over 2007.
- Company remains "well capitalized."
- No executive officer bonuses for 2008 and all executive and senior officer salaries frozen at 2008 levels for 2009.
Independent Bank Corporation (Nasdaq: IBCP) reported a fourth quarter 2008 net loss applicable to common stock of $86.5 million, or $3.80 per share, versus net income from continuing operations of $2.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the prior-year period.
The net loss applicable to common stock for the year ended Dec. 31, 2008 was $88.2 million, or $3.88 per share, compared to net income from continuing operations of $10.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for all of 2007.
The decrease in fourth quarter and full-year 2008 results compared to 2007 was primarily due to increases in the provision for loan losses, securities losses, impairment charges on capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights and goodwill, loan and collection expenses, losses on other real estate owned and income taxes (Including the aforementioned $26.8 million charge to establish a deferred tax evaluation allowance).
Michael M. Magee, President and CEO of Independent Bank Corporation, commented: "Our fourth quarter and full year results were adversely impacted by several large and unusual non-cash charges and securities losses. In addition, credit costs remained elevated as we continued to confront this unprecedented economic environment. Since we cannot control the external environment, our efforts remain focused on controlling internal operations, including improving asset quality, containing credit costs and reducing non-performing assets. Moreover, executive officer bonuses for 2008 were eliminated and salaries for all executive and senior officers were frozen at 2008 levels for 2009, as we continue to weather this time of uncertainty."
The Company's tax equivalent net interest income totaled $33.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2008, an increase of $1.9 million or 5.9% from the year-ago period, and a decrease of $1.6 million, or 4.6% from the third quarter of 2008. The Company's tax equivalent net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets (the "net interest margin") was 4.80% during the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to 4.22% in the year ago period, and 4.76% in the third quarter of 2008. Fourth quarter 2008 tax equivalent net interest income was adversely impacted by the following items: a $0.6 million increase in interest expense for declines in the fair values of interest rate swaps and caps that do not receive hedge accounting treatment; the elimination of $0.2 million in dividend income on Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis stock due to a delay in its declaration; and a $0.5 million increase in the reversal of interest for loans placed on non-accrual. The total impact of these three items was $1.3 million.
Average interest-earning assets declined to $2.774 billion in the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to $2.974 billion in the year ago quarter and $2.930 billion in the third quarter of 2008. This decline in average interest-earning assets reflects decreases in the average balances of both investment securities and loans. Interest-earning assets were being reduced in order to improve regulatory capital ratios. In conjunction with the receipt of $72 million of additional capital on Dec. 12, 2008 through the U.S. Treasury's Capital Purchase Program, the Company is actively pursuing new lending opportunities. Such opportunities may be constrained by economic conditions in our markets, competition, credit approval requirements, and rate of return criteria.
Service charges on deposits totaled $6.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2008, a 6.6% decrease from the comparable period in 2007 due primarily to a decline in overdraft fees. VISA check card interchange income was unchanged at $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to the year-ago period.
Securities losses totaled $6.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2008, versus losses of $1.0 million in the comparable period in 2007. The securities losses in the fourth quarter of 2008 include a decline in the fair value of trading securities of $0.7 million and a write down of $6.2 million (from a par value of $10 million to a fair value of $3.8 million) related to the dissolution of a money-market auction rate security and distribution of the underlying Bank of America preferred stock.
Gains on the sale of mortgage loans were $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2008, compared to $0.9 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase in gains relates primarily to a sharp increase in commitments to originate mortgage loans that are held for sale. This is due to a significant rise in refinancing activity resulting from lower mortgage loan interest rates in the last month of 2008.
Mortgage loan servicing generated a loss of $3.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2008, versus income of $0.4 million in the year-ago period. This decrease is primarily due to a $4.3 million impairment charge on capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights in the fourth quarter of 2008. This impairment charge reflects significantly lower mortgage loan interest rates in the current quarter resulting in higher estimated future prepayment rates. As a result, capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights declined to $12.0 million at Dec. 31, 2008 compared to $16.3 million at Sept. 30, 2008. The Company services approximately $1.65 billion in mortgage loans for others on which servicing rights have been capitalized.
Non-interest expense totaled $83.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2008, compared to $29.6 million in the year-ago period. The rise in non-interest expenses was primarily due to a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $50.0 million and increases in loan and collection expenses ($2.1 million) and losses on other real estate and repossessed assets ($1.7 million). The increases in loan and collection costs and losses on other real estate and repossessed assets resulted from the elevated level of non-performing assets and lower residential housing prices.
During the fourth quarter of 2008 the Company updated its goodwill impairment testing (interim tests had also been performed in the second and third quarters of 2008). The Company's common stock price dropped further in the fourth quarter resulting in a wider difference between its market capitalization and book value. The results of the goodwill impairment testing showed that the estimated fair value of the Company's Independent Bank reporting unit was less than its carrying value of equity, resulting in this $50.0 million charge. The remaining goodwill at year-end of $16.7 million is at the Company's Mepco Finance Corporation reporting unit and the testing performed indicated that this goodwill was not impaired.
Compensation and employee benefit costs declined by $0.3 million or 2.0% in the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to the year-ago period due primarily to the elimination of cash bonuses for executive officers and the reduction of incentive bonuses for other employees. These compensation cost reductions were partially offset by additional staff added during 2008 to manage non-performing assets and loan collections.
Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $11.1 million, an increase of $11.2 million over the fourth quarter of 2007. For the full year of 2008, the income tax expense totaled $3.9 million, an increase of $5.0 million over the same period of 2007. The increases were primarily the result of establishing a valuation allowance of $26.8 million on deferred tax assets, partially offset by the effect of lower pre-tax income and the non-tax deductible portion of the goodwill impairment charge.
Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes," requires that companies assess whether a valuation allowance should be established against their deferred tax assets based on the consideration of all available evidence using a "more likely than not" standard. In accordance with SFAS 109, the Company reviewed its deferred tax asset and determined that due mainly to the pre-tax loss incurred in 2008 and the challenging operating environment currently confronting all banks, that it must establish a valuation allowance for the majority of its net deferred tax asset. During the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2008, the Company recorded a $35.4 million valuation allowance, which consisted of $26.8 million recognized as income tax expense and $8.6 million recognized through the accumulated other comprehensive loss component of shareholders' equity. After the aforementioned valuation allowance, the remaining net deferred tax asset at Dec. 31, 2008 was $6.9 million.
Despite the valuation allowance, these deferred tax assets remain available to offset future taxable income. All deferred tax assets will be analyzed quarterly for changes affecting the valuation allowance, which may be adjusted in future periods accordingly. In making such judgments, significant weight is given to evidence that can be objectively verified. The Company analyzes changes in near-term market conditions and considers both positive and negative evidence as well as other factors which may impact future operating results in making the decision to establish or adjust this valuation allowance.
Pre-Tax, Pre-Loan Loss Provision Core Operating Earnings
The Company is presenting pre-tax pre-provision core operating earnings in this release for purposes of additional analysis of operating results. Pre-tax pre-provision core operating earnings, as defined by management, represents income (loss) from continuing operations excluding: income tax expense (benefit), the provision for loan losses, securities gains or losses, and any impairment charges (including goodwill, losses on other real estate or repossessed assets and fair-value adjustments) or elevated loan and collection costs caused by this economic cycle.
The following table reconciles pre-tax pre-provision core operating earnings to consolidated income (loss) from continuing operations presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), which is a principal and useful measure of earnings and provides comparability of earnings with other companies. However, the Company believes presenting pre-tax pre-provision core operating earnings provides investors with the ability to better understand its underlying operating trends separate from the direct effects of the impairment charges, credit issues, fair value adjustments, securities gains or losses, challenges inherent in the real estate downturn and other economic cycle issues and displays a consistent core operating earnings trend before the impact of these challenges. The credit quality section of this release already isolates the challenges and issues related to the credit quality of the Company's loan portfolio and the impact on its earnings as reflected in the provision for loan losses.

TARP Capital Purchase Program
On Dec. 12, 2008, the Company issued 72,000 shares of its preferred stock and 3,461,538 warrants to purchase the Company's common stock (at a strike price of $3.12 per share) to the U.S. Treasury in return for $72 million under the Capital Purchase Program ("CPP"). Of the total proceeds, $68.4 million was allocated to the preferred stock and $3.6 million was allocated to the warrants (included in capital surplus) based on the relative fair value of each.
Although the CPP funds were initially utilized to pay down short-term borrowings with the Federal Reserve Bank, in the approximately 30-day period (ending Jan. 15, 2009) since the receipt of the CPP funds, the Company has made $72.4 million of loans. This loan volume includes: $27.2 million of commercial loans (of which $21.7 million were renewals of existing loans), $43.1 million of mortgage loans and $2.1 million of consumer installment loans (excluding finance receivables). Further, the CPP funds allow the Company to continue actively pursuing mortgage loan modifications and work-outs in lieu of foreclosure for those mortgage loan customers experiencing financial difficulty. During 2008 the Company processed over 200 mortgage loan modifications or work-outs in lieu of foreclosure. Recently, Fannie Mae recognized the Company for its efforts in successfully pursuing loan workouts and modifications during 2008.
Commenting on asset quality, CEO Magee added: "Our provision for loan losses increased significantly in the fourth quarter, reflecting a rise in non-performing loans, further weakening in real estate values and an elevated level of loan net charge-offs. However, as a result of our proactive efforts to manage credit, commercial loan 30- to 89-day delinquency rates are at their lowest level since 2005 and commercial loan watch credits increased by only 1.4% in the fourth quarter."
A breakdown of non-performing loans by loan type is as follows:
Loan Type 12/31/2008 9/30/2008 12/31/2007 (Dollars in Millions) Commercial $82.1 $74.2 $49.0 Consumer 4.9 3.9 3.4 Mortgage 38.9 33.9 23.1 Finance receivables 3.4 2.6 1.7 Total $129.3 $114.6 $77.2 Ratio of non-performing loans to total portfolio loans 5.25% 4.58% 3.07% Ratio of non-performing assets to total assets 5.06% 4.29% 2.68% Ratio of the allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans 44.79% 47.01% 58.63%
The increase in non-performing loans since year-end 2007 is due principally to an increase in non-performing commercial real estate loans and residential mortgage loans. The rise in non-performing commercial real estate loans is primarily the result of several additional credits with real estate developers becoming past due in 2008. These delinquencies largely reflect cash flow difficulties encountered by real estate developers in Michigan as they confront a significant decline in sales of real estate. Since mid-2007 the land, land development and construction components of the Company's commercial loan portfolio have declined by 39%, 22% and 56%, respectively and now represents less than 5% of total assets. The elevated level of non-performing residential mortgage loans is primarily due to a rise in delinquencies and foreclosures reflecting both weak economic conditions and soft residential real estate values in many parts of Michigan. Other real estate and repossessed assets totaled $20.5 million at Dec. 31, 2008, compared to $20.0 million at Sept. 30, 2008, and $9.7 million at Dec. 31, 2007.
The provision for loan losses was $24.8 million and $9.4 million in the fourth quarters of 2008 and 2007, respectively. The level of the provision for loan losses in each period reflects the Company's overall assessment of the allowance for loan losses, taking into consideration factors such as loan mix, levels of non-performing and classified loans and loan net charge-offs. Loan net charge-offs were $20.0 million (3.19% annualized of average loans) in the fourth quarter of 2008, compared to $6.7 million (1.05% annualized of average loans) in the fourth quarter of 2007. The fourth quarter 2008 loan net charge-offs were divided among the following categories: commercial loans, $13.6 million; consumer loans, $1.9 million (including $0.2 million of deposit overdrafts); mortgage loans, $3.5 million; and finance receivables $1.0 million. The commercial loan and mortgage loan net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2008 primarily reflect write-downs to expected liquidation values for real estate or other collateral securing the loans. At Dec. 31, 2008, the allowance for loan losses totaled $57.9 million, or 2.35% of portfolio loans, compared to $45.3 million, or 1.80% of portfolio loans, at Dec. 31, 2007.
Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Capital
Total assets were $2.96 billion at Dec. 31, 2008, compared to $3.25 billion at Dec. 31, 2007. Loans, excluding loans held for sale, were $2.46 billion at Dec. 31, 2008, compared to $2.52 billion at Dec. 31, 2007. Deposits totaled $2.07 billion at Dec. 31, 2008, a decrease of $438.6 million from Dec. 31, 2007. The decrease in deposits primarily reflects a $333.8 million decline in brokered certificates of deposit ("brokered CD's"). During 2008, maturing or callable brokered CD's were replaced with borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank and Federal Reserve Bank due to significantly lower comparative costs. The balance of the decline in deposits reflects a higher level of off-balance sheet sweeps to money market funds at year end 2008 and the Company's continued pricing discipline in highly competitive markets. The Company's liquidity position remains sound with nearly $617 million of unused borrowing capacity at Dec. 31, 2008.
Stockholders' equity totaled $198.6 million at Dec. 31, 2008, or 6.71% of total assets. The Company's subsidiary bank remains "well capitalized" for regulatory purposes with the following ratios at Dec. 31, 2008:
Well Capitalized Regulatory Capital 12/31/2008 9/30/2008 12/31/2007 Minimum Ratio (estimate) Tier 1 capital to average assets 8.37% 7.45% 7.35% 5.00% Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets 10.76% 9.58% 9.25% 6.00% Total capital to risk-weighted assets 12.05% 10.84% 10.50% 10.00%
With regard to the outlook for 2009, CEO Magee concluded, "The new year is shaping up to be a very difficult one in terms of operating environment, given the continued challenges facing consumers and businesses in Michigan. As a result, we expect to again confront conditions that may adversely affect our business and financial results. The addition of equity under the Capital Purchase Program has enhanced our capital ratios which allows us to seek new lending opportunities. Our stronger capital position also allows us to continue our focus on reducing non-performing assets and improving asset quality. We expect these actions will help us achieve improved long-term operating results even in the face of anticipated prolonged economic weakness throughout 2009."

(A) For the three- and twelve- month periods ended December 31,
2008, these amounts are calculated using loss from continuing
operations applicable to common stock and net loss applicable
to common stock.
(B) Average shares of common stock for basic net income per share
include shares issued and outstanding during the period.
(C) Average shares of common stock for diluted net income per share
include shares to be issued upon exercise of stock options,
stock units for deferred compensation plan for non-employee
directors and unvested restricted shares. For any period
in which a loss is recorded, the assumed exercise of stock
options and stock units for deferred compensation plan for
non-employee directors would have an anti-dilutive impact
on the loss per share and thus are ignored in the diluted
per share calculation.
