BELLEVUE, Wash., July 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foundation Bancorp, Inc. (OTCPink:FDNB), (Foundation or Company), the holding company for Foundation Bank, today reported earnings of $761,000 in the second quarter of 2016, compared to net income of $743,000 in the preceding quarter. In the second quarter a year ago, Foundation lost $1.5 million following a $3.0 million total increase to its provision for loan losses. In the first six months of 2016, Foundation earned $1.5 million, compared to a net loss of $1.1 million in the first six months of 2015.
“On April 26, 2016, we announced that Foundation Bancorp had entered into a definitive merger agreement with Pacific Continental Corporation,” said Duane Woods, Vice Chair and Interim CEO. “Pacific Continental Bank is one of the most successful and well-regarded community business banks in the Pacific Northwest. We know our clients and employees will thrive in the culture and business environment Pacific Continental has created for over 40 years.”
Regulatory approvals have been received from the FDIC and Oregon State Department of Consumer and Business Services. The merger is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2016.
After preferred dividends, net income available to common shareholders for the second quarter was $508,000, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to net income of $490,000, or $0.15 per diluted share in the preceding quarter and a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.48 per share, in the second quarter of 2015.
In August 2015, the Company announced the discovery of fraudulent activity by one of its Washington-based customers. The borrower used falsified financial statements and bank statements to qualify for the loan. The fraudulent documents were discovered approximately 60 days after the loan was originated. Foundation has filed a claim with its insurance company seeking a full recovery. At this time, the former customer has been arrested and charged with bank fraud.
Second Quarter 2016 Highlights:
- Earnings per diluted share were $0.15 in the second quarter of 2016.
- Allowance for loan losses was 1.94% of gross loans.
- Total non-accrual loans decreased 12.5% to $9.4 million at June 30, 2016 compared to $10.8 million at quarter-end a year earlier. Excluding performing restructured loans, non-accrual loans were $5.9 million, or 2.0% of total loans, at June 30, 2016.
- Non-interest bearing demand deposits increased 6.7% compared to a year ago, and represent 43.7% of deposits.
- Core client deposits represent 100% of total deposits at June 30, 2016.
- The ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets (common equity ratio) was 7.3% at June 30, 2016.
Foundation categorizes borrowers who have been granted concessions that may include interest rate reductions, term extensions, or payment alterations as restructured loans. As of June 30, 2016, Foundation held $3.5 million in performing restructured loans that were paying as agreed, but are included in non-accrual loans. Total non-accrual loans decreased 13.5% to $9.4 million at June 30, 2016, compared to $10.8 million one year earlier but increased compared to $7.4 million three months earlier. Excluding performing restructured loans, non-accrual loans were $5.9 million, or 2.0% of total loans at June 30, 2016.
At June 30, 2016, there were $911,000 in foreclosed assets, including Other Real Estate Owned (OREO) and Other Property Owned (OPO), compared to foreclosed assets of $8.1 million a year ago. At March 31, 2016 there were no foreclosed assets on the books. “Our OREO balance increased during the current quarter but the fair market value is twice the carrying value that we have it for on the books, so no loss is expected,” noted Randy Cloes, CFO.
Non-performing assets (NPAs), consisting of non-accrual loans, OREO, OPO and past due loans over 90 days, was $10.3 million, or 2.3% of total assets at June 30, 2016 compared to $7.4 million, or 1.7% of total assets, at March 31, 2016 and decreased 45.6% compared to $18.9 million, or 4.4% of total assets a year ago.

Commercial real estate (CRE) loans totaled $116.5 million at June 30, 2016, and comprise 39.1% of total loans.
