Noninterest Income

Noninterest income increased $756 thousand, or 11.04%, to $7.60 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013, which was largely due to a decrease in the net negative amortization related to the FDIC indemnification asset and an increase in other operating income offset by a decrease in wealth management income and a net impairment loss on securities. Other operating income increased $398 thousand, or 39.41%, for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013. The increase in other operating income included a $536 thousand death benefit received in a life insurance settlement. Wealth management revenues decreased $253 thousand, or 26.06%, for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013. The Trust and Wealth Management Divisions reported $709 million in combined assets under management as of June 30, 2014. Insurance commissions increased $146 thousand, or 11.16%, for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013. Net amortization expense relating to the FDIC indemnification asset decreased $726 thousand, or 43.68%, during the second quarter of 2014, compared to the same quarter of 2013 as a result of less accretion recognized on non-impaired acquired loans. The Company incurred other-than-temporary impairment charges of $254 thousand during the second quarter of 2014 related to a non-Agency mortgage-backed security. Service charges on deposits and other service charges and fees increased $165 thousand, or 3.23%, for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013. The Company realized a $59 thousand net loss on the sale of securities for the second quarter of 2014, which was a decrease of $172 thousand compared to a net gain of $113 thousand in the same quarter of 2013.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense decreased $370 thousand, or 2.00%, to $18.16 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013. Salaries and employee benefits experienced a slight increase of $83 thousand, or 0.83%, to $10.04 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013. Full-time equivalent employees totaled 743 as of June 30, 2014, a decrease of 30 employees compared with the same period of the prior year. Occupancy, furniture, and equipment expenses decreased $312 thousand, or 10.08%, to $2.78 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013. Other operating expense decreased $117 thousand, or 2.43%, to $4.70 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter of 2013, which was primarily due to decreases in legal and marketing expenses offset by increases in service fees and ATM processing expense. Other operating expense included a net loss on sales and expenses associated with other real estate owned of $254 thousand for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $170 thousand for the same quarter of 2013. The efficiency ratio for the second quarter of 2014 was 59.51% compared to 60.60% for the second quarter of 2013.

Allowance for Loan Losses and Asset Quality

The total allowance for loan losses was reduced to $23.91 million as of June 30, 2014, compared with $24.08 million as of December 31, 2013, and $23.12 million as of June 30, 2013. As of June 30, 2014, $23.50 million of the allowance was attributed to the legacy portfolio, $273 thousand was attributed to the acquired Peoples portfolio, and $137 thousand was attributed to the acquired Waccamaw portfolio. Non-covered loans and other real estate owned are those assets not covered by loss share agreements between the FDIC and the Bank in relation to the acquisition of Waccamaw. The allowance for loan losses, excluding purchased credit impaired ("PCI") loans, as a percentage of non-covered loans was 1.44% as of June 30, 2014, compared with 1.50% as of December 31, 2013, and 1.47% as of June 30, 2013. Activity in the allowance in the second quarter of 2014 included a provision for loan losses charged to operations of $1.28 million, a decrease of $1.93 million, or 60.09%, compared to a net provision of $3.21 million recorded in the same quarter of the prior year. Other allowance activity in the second quarter of 2014 included a net recovery of previous impairments recorded through the FDIC indemnification asset of $138 thousand due to better than expected performance in the Waccamaw PCI loan portfolio. Net charge-offs decreased $727 thousand, or 41.42%, in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the fourth quarter of 2013 and decreased $3.91 million, or 79.16%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. The ratio of annualized net charge-offs to average non-covered loans improved to 0.26% for the second quarter of 2014, which represents a decrease of 105 basis points compared with 1.31% for the second quarter of 2013.

Asset quality in the non-covered portfolio continues to improve as non-covered delinquent loans, which are comprised of loans 30 days or more past due and nonaccrual loans, as a percentage of total non-covered loans showed a significant decrease to 1.67% as of June 30, 2014, compared to 2.53% for the same period of the prior year. Non-covered nonaccrual loans totaled $17.46 million as of June 30, 2014, compared to $19.16 million as of December 31, 2013, and $29.13 million as of June 30, 2013. At quarter end, the Company's non-covered nonperforming loans as a percentage of total non-covered loans were 1.19% and non-covered nonperforming assets as a percentage of total non-covered assets were 1.03%.

Total nonperforming assets, including covered and non-covered loan portfolios, consisted of $18.42 million in nonaccrual loans, $109 thousand in accruing loans past due 90 days or more, $1.88 million in unseasoned, accruing troubled debt restructurings, and $14.51 million in other real estate owned as of June 30, 2014. In comparison, total nonperforming assets consisted of $22.51 million in nonaccrual loans, $86 thousand in accruing loans past due 90 days or more, $1.31 million in unseasoned, accruing troubled debt restructurings, and $14.86 million in other real estate owned as of December 31, 2013. In addition, total non-covered nonperforming assets decreased $2.76 million, or 9.92%, and total covered nonperforming assets decreased $1.10 million, or 10.04%, as of June 30, 2014, compared to December 31, 2013.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Consolidated assets totaled $2.58 billion as of June 30, 2014, a decrease of $27.11 million, or 1.04%, compared with $2.60 billion as of December 31, 2013. The change in consolidated assets was driven by a $121.40 million decrease in available-for-sale securities and an $18.97 million decrease in the covered loan portfolio, offset by a $67.67 million increase in the non-covered loan portfolio, a $40.21 million increase in cash and cash equivalents, and an $18.83 million increase in held-to-maturity securities. Consolidated liabilities totaled $2.23 billion as of June 30, 2014, a decrease of $40.98 million, or 1.80%, compared with $2.27 billion as of December 31, 2013. The change in consolidated liabilities was driven by a $27.64 million decrease in deposits and a $16.00 million decrease in federal funds purchased.

During the first six months of 2014, the Company purchased medium-term bonds in the held-to-maturity category and it is expected that this portfolio will continue to grow consistently and will provide the funding necessary to extinguish certain wholesale borrowings as they come due.

Total stockholders' equity increased to $342.48 million as of June 30, 2014, compared with $328.61 million as of December 31, 2013. Book value per as-converted common share increased to $17.61 as of June 30, 2014, compared with $16.79 as of December 31, 2013. Tangible book value per common share increased to $12.05 as of June 30, 2014, compared with $11.26 as of December 31, 2013. Additionally, the Company repurchased 131,500 common shares at a weighted average cost of $16.30 per share and paid a cash dividend of $0.24 per common share during the first six months of 2014.

The Company significantly exceeds regulatory "well capitalized" targets as of June 30, 2014, with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.4%, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 15.2%, and a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.4%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). This press release also refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures that the Company believes provide investors with important information, when used in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP, regarding its operational performance.

Core earnings are a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes certain items from net income. Excluded items include gains, losses, and impairment losses on securities; goodwill and intangible impairment; amortization of intangibles; taxes; and other nonrecurring income and expense items. Management believes that core earnings provide the Company and investors a valuable tool to evaluate the Company's financial results.

The efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure that is computed by dividing adjusted noninterest expense by the sum of tax equivalent net interest income and adjusted noninterest income. Management believes this measure provides investors with important information about the Company's operating expense control and efficiency of operations. Management also believes this ratio focuses attention on the core operating performance of the Company over time and is highly useful in comparing period-to-period operating performance of core business operations. The efficiency ratio used by the Company may not be comparable to efficiency ratios reported by other financial institutions.

Tangible book value per common share is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as stockholders' equity less goodwill and other intangibles, divided by as-converted common shares outstanding. Average tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as average stockholders' equity less average goodwill, other intangibles, and the preferred liquidation preference.
