Intervest Bancshares Corporation (NASDAQ-GS: IBCA) (the "Company") today reported net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2009 ("Q4-09") of $0.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted common share, compared to $0.5 million, or $0.05 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2008 ("Q4-08"). The decrease in net earnings was due to a $1.4 million increase in noninterest expenses, a $1.2 million increase in the provision for loan losses, a $0.5 million decrease in noninterest income and $0.4 million of dividend requirements related to outstanding preferred stock held by the U.S. Treasury under the TARP program. The aggregate of these items was partially offset by a $2.9 million increase in net interest and dividend income and a $0.4 million decrease in the provision for income tax expense.

Net interest and dividend income increased to $12.1 million in Q4-09 from $9.2 million in Q4-08, reflecting an improved net interest margin. The margin (excluding loan prepayment income) increased to 2.04% in Q4-09 from 1.70% in Q4-08 due to lower rates paid on deposits and adjustable-rate borrowings, the early retirement of higher cost borrowings, a decrease in interest income not recorded on nonaccrual loans and a $16 million increase in net interest earning assets. These factors were partially offset by calls of higher yielding U.S. government agency security investments (coupled with the reinvestment of the proceeds into similar securities with lower interest rates). The yield on the Company's interest-earning assets decreased by 58 basis points to 5.25% in Q4-09, while its cost of funds decreased by 102 basis points to 3.54% in Q4-09.

The provision for loan losses increased to $3.9 million in Q4-09 from $2.7 million in Q4-08. The increase was attributable to downgrades of internal risk ratings on both accrual and nonaccrual loans and lower estimates of real estate values on certain collateral properties. The Company continues to be negatively impacted by the weak economy, high rates of unemployment, increased office and retail vacancy rates and lower commercial real estate values, all of which have resulted in a higher level of nonperforming assets and related carrying expenses, increased loan and real estate loss provisions and foregone interest income.

Noninterest income decreased to $0.1 million in Q4-09 from $0.6 million in Q4-08, primarily due to a $0.9 million other than temporary impairment charge on trust preferred security investments, partially offset by a $0.3 million increase in income from the early repayment of loans. The impairment charge is based on an assessment that it is unlikely that a portion of the contractual principal and interest will be received on those securities experiencing increased payment defaults. At December 31, 2009, trust preferred security investments totaled $5.8 million.

Noninterest expenses increased to $7.3 million in Q4-09 from $5.9 million in Q4-08. The increase was primarily due to a $0.8 million (208%) increase in FDIC insurance premiums due to higher rates imposed on all FDIC insured banks and a $1.1 million increase in writedowns of foreclosed real estate due to declining commercial real estate values. These items were partially offset by a $0.2 million decrease in expenses associated with nonperforming assets and $0.3 million of expense from the early retirement of higher-cost, fixed-rate debentures in Q4-08 that did not recur in Q4-09. The Company had 72 employees at both December 31, 2009 and 2008.

The provision for income tax expense decreased to $0.3 million in Q4-09 from $0.7 million in Q4-08. The decrease was primarily due to a $0.4 million refund of state income taxes paid in years prior to 2008. The effective tax rate was 29% in Q4-09, compared to 59% in Q4-08. The 2009 rate was positively impacted by the tax refund, while the 2008 rate was negatively impacted by the recording of a full year's impact of a deductibility limit on contractually obligated executive compensation of the Chairman resulting from the Company's subsequent participation in TARP.

Net earnings for the full year 2009 as compared to 2008 decreased by $5.7 million due to a $8.2 million increase in noninterest expenses, a $4.7 million decrease in noninterest income and $1.6 million of preferred stock dividend requirements, partially offset by a $4.1 million decrease in the provision for income taxes, a $4.4 million increase in net interest and dividend income and a $0.3 million decrease in the provision for loan losses.

Total assets at December 31, 2009 were $2.40 billion compared to $2.27 billion at December 31, 2008, reflecting an increase in security investments, foreclosed real estate and prepaid FDIC insurance premiums, partially offset by a decrease in overnight investments and loans receivable.

Securities held to maturity increased by $159 million to $635 million at December 31, 2009 and the portfolio had a weighted-average remaining contractual maturity and a yield of 4.5 years and 2.73%, respectively.

Total loans receivable, net of unearned fees, amounted to $1.69 billion at December 31, 2009, a $20 million decrease from $1.71 billion at December 31, 2008. The decrease was due to the aggregate of $185 million of principal repayments, $27.7 million of loans transferred to foreclosed real estate and $8.1 million of loan chargeoffs exceeding $200 million of new loan originations, nearly all of which are secured by commercial real estate. The new loans are nearly all fixed-rate with a weighted-average yield and term of 6.69% and 5.2 years, respectively. New loan originations for 2008 amounted to $387 million.

Total nonperforming assets at December 31, 2009 amounted to $155.8 million, or 6.49% of total assets, compared $164.6 million, or 6.91% of total assets at September 30, 2009 and $117.7 million, or 5.18%, at December 31, 2008. At December 31, 2009, nonperforming assets were comprised of $123.9 million of nonaccrual loans, or 34 loans, and $31.9 million of real estate acquired through foreclosure, or 10 properties. At December 31, 2009, the Company also had $97.3 million of accruing restructured loans (with a weighted average interest rate of 5.08%) on which the Company has granted certain concessions to provide payment relief generally consisting of the deferral of principal payments and/or a partial reduction in interest payments for a period of time. The Company continues to take various steps to resolve its nonaccrual loans, including proceeding with foreclosures on many of the collateral properties, working with certain borrowers to provide payment relief and, in limited cases, accepting partial payment as full satisfaction of a nonaccrual loan.

The total allowance for loan losses increased to $32.6 million at December 31, 2009 from $28.5 million at December 31, 2008, due to $10.9 million of loan loss provisions and a $1.3 million partial recovery of a prior chargeoff, partially offset by $8.1 million of new chargeoffs. The allowance represented 1.94% of total loans (net of deferred fees) at December 31, 2009, compared to 1.67% at December 31, 2008. At each date, a SFAS 114 specific valuation allowance (included as part of the overall allowance for loan losses) in the aggregate amount of $13.8 million and $8.2 million, respectively, was maintained on total nonaccrual and restructured loans.

Total deposits at December 31, 2009 increased to $2.03 billion from $1.86 billion at December 31, 2008, reflecting an increase of $167 million in money market accounts. Total borrowed funds and related interest payable at December 31, 2009 decreased to $118 million, from $149 million at December 31, 2008, reflecting the early repayment of $40 million of higher cost debentures, partially offset by an $11 million increase in lower cost short-term borrowings from the FHLBNY.

Total stockholders' equity at December 31, 2009 increased to $214.1 million from $212.0 million at December 31, 2008, primarily due to net earnings of $1.5 million. At December 31, 2009, Intervest National Bank's regulatory capital ratios were as follows: total capital to risk-weighted assets – 14.04%, Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets – 12.79% and Tier 1 capital to total average assets (leverage ratio) – 10.05%.
