Oak Ridge Financial Services Announces Third Quarter 2011 Results

Oak Ridge Financial Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:BKOR), parent company of Bank of Oak Ridge, headquartered in Oak Ridge, North Carolina, reported financial results for the third quarter of 2011.

Quarterly Financial Highlights:

  • Quarterly net income of $75,000, compared to $41,000 in the same period in 2010. Contributing to the increase were increases in net interest income and reductions in noninterest expense and income tax expense.

  • Quarterly net loss available to common shareholders of $88,000, compared to $118,000 in the same period in 2010.
  • Allowance for loan losses of 1.81% of total loans as of September 30, 2011, compared to 1.71% as of December 31, 2010.
  • Net interest income of $3.5 million, up 3.6% from $3.4 million for the same period in 2010. The Company’s net interest margin increased to 4.28%, up from 4.15% in the same period in 2010.
  • Noninterest income of $836,000, down 16.6% from $1.0 million for the same period in 2010.
  • Noninterest expense of $3.3 million, down 7.2% from noninterest expense of $3.6 million for the same period in 2010.
  • Total loans decreased 2.4% to $250.4 million from December 31, 2010 to September 30, 2011.
  • Noninterest bearing deposits increased 21.1% to $32.4 million from December 31, 2010 to September 30, 2011.

Narrative:

Oak Ridge Financial Services, Inc. announced net income for the three months ended September 30, 2011 of $75,000, compared to net income of $41,000 for the prior year period. After subtracting dividends and accretion on preferred stock, net loss available for common shareholders was $88,000 and $118,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Net loss per diluted share was $0.05 and $0.07 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Oak Ridge Financial Services President, Ron Black, in commenting on the results, noted, “Our operating performance continues to be negatively affected by the weak local economy as reflected by the increase in our provision for loan losses from 2010 to 2011. On a positive note, our nonperforming assets declined significantly from June 30, 2011 to September 30, 2011 as a result of resolving two significant loan relationships with total outstanding balances in excess of $4 million. As a result of these efforts, nonperforming assets were up only slightly from December 2010 to September 2011. We continue to devote substantial efforts in servicing and reducing these assets. Additionally, we have been very pleased with our growth in non-interest and interest-bearing consumer and business checking accounts in 2011.”

Mr. Black further commented “Our primary areas of focus for the rest of 2011 will be continuing to service our loan and other real estate owned portfolios while growing net interest income, minimizing the negative impact on noninterest income as a result of recently enacted government regulations, and providing the best service possible to existing and potential clients. We plan to continue to support our local economy by taking deposits, making loans, and providing financial advice to help our clients navigate these difficult times. The community was supportive of our Bank in the first nine months of 2011 and we are very encouraged by the continuing growth we are seeing in both noninterest deposits and interest bearing checking deposits. Lastly, at September 30, 2011 we were well-capitalized with capital available for future profitable growth.”
