4th Quarter and Year 2012 Highlights
- CTBI’s basic earnings per share for the quarter increased $0.04 per share from the fourth quarter 2011 and $0.02 per share from the third quarter 2012. Basic earnings per share for the year 2012 increased $0.36 per share from prior year. The increase in earnings from prior year was supported by increased net interest income and noninterest income and decreased provision for loan loss and noninterest expense.
- Net interest income for the quarter increased 2.6% from prior year fourth quarter and 2.2% from prior quarter as our net interest margin increased 5 basis points and 7 basis points, respectively, for those time periods. Net interest income for the year increased 0.5% while our net interest margin declined 14 basis points.
- Nonperforming loans at $36.0 million decreased $1.3 million from December 31, 2011 but increased $2.0 million from September 30, 2012. Nonperforming assets at $83.0 million decreased $10.9 million from prior year and $6.6 million from prior quarter.
- Net loan charge-offs for both of the quarters ended December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012 were $2.9 million, or 0.45% of average loans annualized, compared to $4.9 million, or 0.75%, experienced for the fourth quarter 2011. Net charge-offs for the year 2012 were $9.4 million compared to $14.9 million for the year 2011.
- Our loan loss provision for the quarter decreased $0.09 million from prior year fourth quarter and $0.03 million from prior quarter. Our loan loss provision for the year 2012 was $3.8 million below 2011 as net charge-offs declined $5.5 million and loans declined $6.0 million.
- Our loan loss reserve as a percentage of total loans outstanding remained at 1.30% from December 31, 2011 to December 31, 2012. Our reserve coverage (allowance for loan loss reserve to nonperforming loans) at December 31, 2012 was 92.3% compared to 89.0% at December 31, 2011 and 97.5% at September 30, 2012.
- Noninterest income increased 3.3% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 and 10.2% from prior quarter. Noninterest income for the year 2012 has increased 4.8% as a result of increased gains on sales of loans, trust revenue, and loan related fees, as well as a $1.0 million increase in net securities gains.
- Noninterest expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 increased from prior year fourth quarter and prior quarter, primarily as a result of increased personnel expense associated with the employee incentive accrual. Noninterest expense for the year decreased 2.7% from prior year as a result of decreases in FDIC insurance premiums, legal fees, other real estate owned expense, and repossession expense, partially offset by an increase in personnel expense.
- Our loan portfolio decreased $6.0 million from prior year and $1.0 million during the quarter.
- Our investment portfolio increased $75.9 million from prior year but decreased $17.9 million during the quarter.
- Deposits, including repurchase agreements, increased $18.4 million from prior year but declined $16.4 million from prior quarter.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income for the quarter increased $0.9 million from prior year and $0.7 million from prior quarter with average earning assets increasing 1.9% and 0.3% and our net interest margin increasing 5 basis points and 7 basis points for the same periods. The yield on average earning assets decreased 19 basis points from prior year fourth quarter and 6 basis points from prior quarter. Loans represented 75.5% of our average earning assets for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 77.3% for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 and 75.4% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Net interest income for the year 2012 increased $0.7 million as our net interest margin declined 14 basis points and average earning assets increased 4.2%. The increased cost of our Hoops CD product resulting from the University of Kentucky’s national championship win increased our cost of interest bearing funds and decreased our net interest margin by approximately 2 basis points during the fourth quarter 2012, approximately 6 basis points during the third quarter 2012, and approximately 4 basis points for the year.
Noninterest income increased 3.3% for the fourth quarter 2012 compared to the fourth quarter 2011 and 10.2% from prior quarter, primarily as a result of increased loan related fees. Noninterest income for the year 2012 has increased 4.8% as a result of increased gains on sales of loans, trust revenue, and loan related fees, partially offset by a decline in deposit service charges. Loan related fees were impacted by a $0.8 million variance year over year in adjustments to the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights, as well as the receipt of a $0.4 million commercial loan prepayment penalty. Noninterest income was also impacted by $1.2 million in net securities gains for the year 2012 compared to $0.2 million for the year 2011.
Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter 2012 increased from prior year fourth quarter and prior quarter, primarily as a result of increased personnel expense associated with the employee incentive accrual. Noninterest expense for the year decreased 2.7% from prior year as a result of decreases in FDIC insurance premiums, legal fees, other real estate owned expense, and repossession expense, partially offset by an increase in personnel expense.
