NAPLES, FL--(Marketwire - August 8, 2012) - TIB Financial Corp. (
"Our team has been working hard in planning for the pending acquisition of Southern Community Financial Corp. While shareholder and regulatory approvals are still pending, Southern Community will expand the Bank's franchise throughout North Carolina, where we see significant growth opportunities. Our recent renegotiation of the investment agreement to change the consideration mix to 100% cash represents our continued commitment to this strategic complement to our organization and eliminates obstacles on the road to a successful merger," stated Gene Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and Capital Bank.
"Our strongest quarter to date for organic loan production, successes in resolution of problem assets and continued aggressive deposit repricing resulted in continued improvement in the Bank's loan mix, net interest margin and profitability. The consolidation of certain duplicative functions during the second quarter is expected to result in further improvement of our efficiency ratio and our overall returns," commented Chris Marshall, Chief Financial Officer of the Company Capital Bank.
Effective April 29, 2011, TIB Bank (the "Bank"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, merged (the "Merger") with and into NAFH National Bank ("NAFH Bank"), a national banking association, with NAFH Bank as the surviving entity. On June 30, 2011, Capital Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capital Bank Corp., an affiliated majority-owned subsidiary of CBF, also merged with and into NAFH Bank, with NAFH Bank as the surviving entity. In connection with the merger, NAFH Bank changed its name to Capital Bank, NA. Additionally on September 7, 2011, GreenBank merged with and into Capital Bank, NA. Through the subsidiary bank mergers, the common stock of the subsidiary banks was converted into shares of Capital Bank, NA common stock based on each entity's relative tangible book value. As a result of the mergers of TIB Bank, Capital Bank and Green Bank into Capital Bank, NA, the Company now owns approximately 21% of Capital Bank, NA, with CBF directly owning 19%, Capital Bank Corp. directly owning 26% and Green Bankshares owning the remaining 34%. As of June 30, 2012, following the mergers, Capital Bank, NA had total assets of $6.3 billion, total deposits of $5.1 billion and shareholders' equity of $966.5 million and operated 143 branches in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. CBF is the owner of approximately 94% of the Company's common stock, approximately 83% of Capital Bank Corp.'s common stock, and approximately 90% of Green Bankshares common stock.
The Company's investment in Capital Bank, NA is recorded as an equity-method investment in that entity. As of June 30, 2012, the Company's investment in Capital Bank, NA totaled $206.5 million, which reflected the Company's pro rata ownership of Capital Bank, NA's total shareholders' equity at that date. In periods subsequent to the Bank Merger, the Company will adjust this equity investment balance on its equity in Capital Bank, NA's net income and comprehensive income. In connection with the Merger, the assets and liabilities of the Bank were de-consolidated from the Company's balance sheet resulting in a significant decrease in the total assets and total liabilities of the Company in the second quarter of 2011.
The following table presents summarized financial information for Capital Bank, NA:
The Company reported net income of $1.9 million for the second quarter compared to a net income of $2.0 million for the first quarter of 2012 and net income of $1.0 million for the second quarter of 2011. Due to the Merger discussed above and the resulting deconsolidation of TIB Bank on April 29, 2011, the operating results for the second quarter of 2012 includes three months of equity in income from its investment in Capital Bank, NA which amounted to $2.4 million, net of tax and therefore are generally not comparable to the operations during the second quarter of 2011. Due to the Company accounting for its investment in Capital Bank, NA using the equity method, a comparison of net interest margin to prior periods is not meaningful and is excluded.
During the second quarter of 2012 equity income increased by $1.7 million to $2.4 million, as compared to the second quarter of 2011. This increase was a combination of the second quarter of 2011 not containing a full three months of activity due to the Merger discussed above and a general growth in earnings year over year Capital Bank, NA. The Company reported $0.9 million of investment advisory fees in the second quarter 2012, a $0.1 million decrease from the prior quarter which was a result of an overall decline in investment related fees. During the quarter the Company had $0.1 million of merger related expenses stemming from professional service expenses.
During 2011, the Company's registered investment advisor, Naples Capital Advisors, Inc., experienced a decrease in assets under advisement to approximately $102 million from approximately $193 million as of December 31, 2010, following the departure of certain employees, leading to an impairment charge of $2.9 million recorded during the fourth quarter of 2011. The remaining value of the customer relationship intangible at June 30, 2012 was approximately $180,000.
Potential Merger of TIB Financial Corp. and CBF
On September 1, 2011, CBF and the Company's Board of Directors approved and adopted a plan of merger. The plan of merger provides for the merger of TIB Financial Corp. with and into CBF, with CBF continuing as the surviving entity. In the merger, each share of TIB Financial Corp.'s common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the completion of the merger, except for shares for which appraisal rights are properly exercised and certain shares held by CBF or TIB Financial Corp., will be converted into the right to receive 0.7205 of a share of CBF Class A common stock. No fractional shares of Class A common stock will be issued in connection with the merger, and holders of TIB Financial Corp. common stock will be entitled to receive cash in lieu thereof.
Since CBF currently owns more than 90% of common stock of TIB Financial Corp., under Delaware and Florida law, no vote of our stockholders is required to complete the merger. CBF will determine when and if the merger will ultimately take place.
