Coeur d'Alene Bancorp Announces Its Second Quarter 2020 Results
Coeur d'Alene Bancorp (OTC Pink: CDAB), the parent company of bankcda, is pleased to announce its results for the second quarter 2020.
Coeur d'Alene Bancorp today reported net income of $456,444 or $0.24 per share for six months ended June 30, 2020, down from $720,386 or $0.47 per share for six months ended 2019. All results are unaudited.
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights:
"Earnings continue to be under pressure based on the asset sensitive nature of our balance sheet. This will continue, going forward, as we work to re-allocate short-term assets from deposit growth and maturing investments. In this low rate environment, our assets are repricing faster than our deposits narrowing our net interest margin and reducing income. Income earned from PPP loans will provide temporary support, but will begin declining as loans are forgiven later this year," said Wes Veach, President and Chief Executive Officer.
"During the quarter, a lot of resources were consumed dealing with COVID-19-related issues: from originating Paycheck Protection Program loans to branch closures and subsequent re-opening. During the quarter, we originated 277 PPP loans totaling $23.8M to small businesses in our region. The SBA paid processing fees ranging from 2% to 5%, based on the loan size. These fees totaled $1,055,311 and will be recognized over the life of the loans.
"We completed a 'core' conversion during the quarter and transitioned our banking system from FISERV to Computer Systems Inc (CSI (News - Alert)). This conversion resulted in significant expense that was incurred during the period and will continue to be incurred for the remainder of 2020. We anticipate cost savings from the conversion to be recognized over the next several years starting in 2021.
"The second quarter presented many challenges for the company starting with the reduction in the fed funds rate by 150 basis points late in the first quarter. In response to COVID-19, we shifted employees to work remotely and closed branch lobbies for several weeks. This presented logistical challenges when launching our PPP program at the beginning of April. Our strong core deposit base allowed us to lower deposit rates during the quarter, while still experiencing growth of $23.7M. Loan demand has remained constant, but increased competition has placed pressure on the rates we offer. Our capital position remains solid and classified loans remain low."
