Yadkin Valley Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: YAVY), the holding company for Yadkin Valley Bank and Trust Company, announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011. Net income available to common shareholders for the quarter was $2.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011, and a net loss of $9,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010. Net loss available to common shareholders for the year was $17.4 million, or $0.95 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $3.2 million or $0.20 per diluted share in 2010.

Joe Towell, President and CEO of Yadkin Valley Financial, commented, "We are pleased to see our second consecutive quarter of profitability. Due to the prudent execution of our strategic plan throughout 2011, we are seeing positive results in the Bank's performance. Our branch consolidations, line unit reorganizations, and targeted expense reduction plans initiated in 2011 are complete, and we are looking forward to a positive year ahead as we focus on consistent profitability.

"Asset quality continues to be our priority. This quarter, our nonperforming loans improved slightly and charge-offs were up slightly over the previous quarter, but our year-over-year numbers show marked improvement, particularly in the decline of our adversely classified loans which decreased $45.6 million or 25% since December 31, 2010. We are encouraged by continuing signs of stabilizing credit quality, and one of our primary goals for 2012 is reducing the level of our problem assets.

"Our sales and service training program, which we announced last quarter, is well underway. We are investing in every employee in the Company in order to improve our customer delivery and experience. This initiative will continue throughout 2012, and we look forward to showing our customers the benefits of this endeavor.

"Finally, we continue to be keenly focused on our capital management strategy. Management and the Board will continue to evaluate strategic capital options that could provide even greater strength to the Company in the future."

Fourth Quarter 2011 Financial Highlights

Asset Quality

Nonperforming loans, which include loans in nonaccrual status, decreased $1.3 million, to $69.4 million, or 4.72% of total gross loans at December 31, 2011, compared to $70.8 million, or 4.76% of total gross loans at September 30, 2011. The Company continues to keep a tight focus on nonperforming loans, and the decrease in the fourth quarter is largely due to prudent portfolio management. "We are encouraged by the decline in nonperforming loans," said Towell. "We moved several larger commercial loans into Other Real Estate Owned this quarter and while that keeps them in our nonperforming category, we believe that puts them one step closer to resolution through eventual sale."

Other Real Estate Owned ("OREO") totaled $25.0 million at December 31, 2011, an increase of $3.7 million compared to $21.3 million at September 30, 2011. This increase in OREO was the result of $6.7 million in foreclosures for the quarter, offset by dispositions of $3.1 million. Total nonperforming assets at December 31, 2011 were $94.4 million, or 4.74% of total assets, an increase of $2.3 million from September 30, 2011. Nonperforming assets increased due to the increase in OREO, as nonperforming loans decreased for the quarter.

During the fourth quarter of 2011, the provision for loan losses was $3.6 million, an increase of $1.7 million from the third quarter of 2011. The increase in provision was driven by an increase in charge-offs for the quarter. Net charge-offs for the fourth quarter totaled $4.5 million, or 1.20% of average loans on an annualized basis, an increase of $500,000 from the third quarter. Total net loan charge-offs for 2011 were $25.7 million, or 1.68% of average loans for the year.

At December 31, 2011, the allowance for loan losses was $32.8 million, compared to $33.7 million at September 30, 2011. As a percentage of total loans held-for-investment, the allowance for loan losses was 2.26% in the fourth quarter of 2011, down from 2.29% in the third quarter of 2011. Out of the $32.8 million in total allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2011, the specific allowance for impaired loans accounted for $4.1 million, remaining flat from the end of the third quarter. The remaining general allowance of $28.7 million attributed to unimpaired loans was down from $29.6 million at the end of the third quarter. This decrease was driven by continued decreases in loans held-for-investment, as well as a decrease in criticized, non-impaired (internal risk grades 5 and 6, and risk grade 7 under $100,000) loans.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income remained flat quarter over quarter, totaling $15.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The net interest margin improved to 3.31%, up from 3.29% in the third quarter. Our net interest margin continues to see steady improvement due to the planned shift in our deposit mix. The managed movement from high-cost time deposits to low-cost core deposits improved our net interest margin as cost of total deposits decreased to 1.09% for the quarter as compared to 1.20% in the third quarter of 2011.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income decreased $689,000, or 12.9%, to $4.7 million compared to $5.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. In the previous quarter, the Company experienced a larger gain on securities.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense increased $984,000, or 7.6%, to $13.9 million, up from $13.0 million in the third quarter of 2011. However, in the prior quarter, the Company recorded several significant transactions including the elimination of an employee benefit and a change in our FDIC premium calculation, which decreased our non-interest expense last quarter. Excluding those transactions, non-interest expense was flat quarter-over-quarter.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Total assets decreased $53.9 million for the fourth quarter and $307.4 million, or 13.4%, during 2011. The decrease in total assets for the year was primarily related to the decrease in loans and deposits. Gross loans held-for-investment decreased $149.6 million, or 9.3%, during 2011, and total deposits decreased $289.1 million, or 14.3%. This deposit decrease continues to be mostly higher-cost time deposits, as our non-interest bearing demand deposits continue to increase in volume. Brokered deposits remain a relatively small portion of the Company's funding sources, representing only 2.8% of total deposits at December 31, 2011, a continued decrease from the level at September 30, 2011.

The Bank remains well-capitalized for regulatory purposes. As of December 31, 2011, the Bank's leverage ratio, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, and total risk-based capital ratio were 8.0%, 10.2%, and 11.5%, respectively. Leverage ratio, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, and total risk-based capital ratio were 8.3%, 10.6%, and 11.8% respectively, for the holding company as of December 31, 2011. For capital adequacy purposes, leverage ratio, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, and total risk-based capital ratio must be in excess of 5.00%, 6.00%, and 10.00%, respectively, to be considered well-capitalized. The improvement in capital ratios, at both the holding company and the Bank, is due to the Company's second consecutive quarter of profitability.
