First Capital, Inc. Reports Quarterly Earnings Increase

CORYDON, Ind., July 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital, Inc. (Nasdaq:FCAP), the holding company for First Harrison Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $1.2 million or $0.43 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $1.0 million or $0.37 per diluted share for the same period in 2012.

The increase in net income is primarily due to increases in net interest income after provision for loan losses and noninterest income and a decrease in noninterest expense.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $163,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Interest income decreased $122,000 when comparing the two periods as the average tax-equivalent yield of interest-earning assets decreased from 4.53% for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 to 4.43% for the same period in 2013. Interest expense decreased $210,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.75% to 0.50% when comparing the same two periods. As a result, the interest-rate spread increased from 3.78% for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 to 3.93% for the same period in 2013. The provision for loan losses decreased from $300,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 to $225,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 primarily due to a decrease in impaired loans and the related allowance for loan losses during the quarter.

Noninterest income increased $88,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012. Commission income and service charges on deposit accounts increased by $40,000 and $39,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods.

Noninterest expenses decreased $54,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2012. Compensation and benefits expense decreased $90,000 when comparing the two periods primarily due to a pre-tax savings of $130,000 recognized as a result of the voluntary early retirement program which took effect on September 30, 2012. This was partially offset by increases in professional service fees of $43,000 and data processing expenses of $32,000 when comparing the two periods. The increase in professional fees includes a compensation study, costs associated with an evaluation of the Bank's asset liability model and increased expenses associated with the management of the Nevada investment subsidiary. The increase in data processing expenses was primarily due to an increase in ATM processing fees and an increase in the number of customers using alternative delivery channels for their banking products.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company reported net income of $2.4 million or $0.86 per diluted share compared to net income of $2.0 million or $0.70 per diluted share for the same period in 2012.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $488,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. Interest income decreased $267,000 when comparing the two periods, due to a decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 4.69% for 2012 to 4.44% for 2013. This was partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $412.3 million for the six-months ended June 30, 2012 to $424.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Interest expense decreased $455,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.79% to 0.52% when comparing the same two periods while the average balance of the interest-bearing liabilities increased from $340.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 to $348.1 million for the same period in 2013. The provision for loan losses decreased from $775,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 to $475,000 for the same period in 2013 as net charge offs decreased from $525,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 to $376,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Noninterest income increased $175,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012. The increase was primarily due to increases in commission income and service charges on deposit accounts of $115,000 and $73,000, respectively.

Noninterest expenses decreased $65,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, primarily due to a decrease in compensation and benefit expenses of $225,000. This was partially offset by increases in other operating expenses, professional fees and data processing expenses of $63,000, $58,000 and $54,000, respectively.

Total assets as of June 30, 2013 were $460.6 million compared to $459.1 million at December 31, 2012. Cash and cash equivalents increased $10.5 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013, while securities available for sale decreased $9.3 million. Deposits increased $5.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonaccrual loans, accruing loans 90 days or more past due, troubled debt restructurings on accrual status, and foreclosed real estate) totaled $7.8 million and $8.4 million at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.
