Cathay General Bancorp Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

Cathay General Bancorp reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net income available to common stockholders of $35.9 million, an increase of $5.9 million, or 19.5%, compared to $30.0 million for the same quarter a year ago. Diluted earnings per share available to common stockholders were $0.45 compared to $0.38 for the same quarter a year ago due primarily to an increase in net interest income, a higher negative provision for credit losses in 2014, a decrease in the cost associated with debt redemption and the elimination of preferred stock dividends, which were partially offset by a decrease in securities gains. Return on average stockholders equity was 9.14% and return on average assets was 1.27% compared to a return on average stockholders' equity of 8.37% and a return on average assets of 1.22% for the same quarter a year ago. Net interest income before provision for credit losses increased $4.2 million, or 5.0%, to $86.8 million compared to $82.6 million during the same quarter a year ago. The increase was due primarily to the increase in loan interest income and the decrease in interest expense from securities sold under agreements to repurchase, offset by the decrease in interest income from available-for-sale securities. Net interest income after provision for credit losses was $91.855 million against $85.608 million a year ago. Income before income tax expense was $58.222 million against $51.658 million a year ago. Total interest and dividend income was $106.335 million against $102.462 million a year ago. For the nine months, the company’s net income attributable to common stockholders was $102.3 million, an increase of $20.7 million, or 25.4%, compared to $81.6 million for the same period a year ago, due primarily to increases in net interest income, a higher negative provision for credit losses, decreases in costs associated with debt redemption, decreases in amortization of core deposit premiums, decrease in professional services expense, and decreases in OREO expense partially offset by decreases in gains on sale of securities, increases in salaries and incentive compensation expense, and higher FDIC and state assessments. Diluted earnings per share attributable to common stockholders were $1.28 compared to $1.03 for the same period a year ago. Return on average stockholders' equity was 8.98% and return on average assets was 1.25% compared to a return on average stockholders' equity of 7.78% and a return on average assets of 1.16% for the same period of 2013. Net interest income before provision for credit losses was $255.030 million against $242.734 million a year ago. Net interest income after provision for credit losses was $263.830 million against $245.734 million a year ago. Income before income tax expense was $163.196 million against $144.182 million a year ago. Total interest and dividend income was $312.604 million against $305.375 million a year ago. Book value per common share as at September 30, 2014 was $19.62 against $18.24 a year ago.
