Merchants has taken advantage of favorable pricing during 2010 and captured gains on several of its mortgage-backed securities that appeared to have heightened prepayment risk. Merchants sold bonds during the third quarter of 2010 with a total par value of $13.90 million for a net pre-tax gain of $686 thousand. During the first nine months of 2010, Merchants has sold bonds with a total par value of $43.06 million for a pre-tax gain of $1.90 million. Additionally, Merchants sold two non-agency collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMOs”) and two low yielding Agency CMOs during early October for a total loss of $89 thousand. These bonds were marked down to their fair value as of September 30, 2010 due to Merchants’ intent to sell them in a subsequent period. These selective bond sales will help to better position Merchants’ investment portfolio from a credit and interest rate risk standpoint.Total deposits ended the quarter at $1.07 billion, an increase of $29.33 million from year end balances of $1.04 billion. Average balances for the third quarter of this year were $1.06 billion, an increase of $21.64 million from fourth quarter 2009 average balances of $1.04 billion. Since the end of 2009 there has been continued migration from time deposit categories, which have decreased $24.46 million, into savings, NOW and money market accounts, which have increased $36.89 million. Time deposits as a percentage of total deposits have decreased from 37.8% at year end 2009 to 34.5% at September 30, 2010. Demand deposits have shown solid growth during 2010, increasing $16.89 million to $136.64 million at September 30, 2010, from $119.74 million at year end.Merchants’ taxable equivalent net interest income for the third quarter of 2010 was $12.82 million, and was $38.13 million for the first nine months of 2010, compared to $12.79 million for the third quarter of 2009 and $37.55 million for the first nine months of 2009. Merchants’ taxable equivalent net interest margin decreased eleven basis points during the third quarter to 3.70% from 3.81% for the second quarter of the current year, and decreased by seven basis points compared to the third quarter of 2009. The margin for the first nine months of 2010 decreased by six basis points to 3.75% from 3.81% for the same period in 2009.”Net interest income is under significant pressure in the current environment. The low yields available for reinvestment of cash flows from the investment portfolio dictate that we need to increase the size of our loan book if we are to increase our net interest income. We have added resources to the lending area and are actively working to position ourselves for growth during the fourth quarter and into 2011,” commented Mr. Tuttle.Total noninterest income increased to $3.03 million and $9.09 million for the third quarter and first nine months of 2010 from $2.60 million and $6.94 million for the same periods in 2009. Excluding net gains (losses) on security sales and other than temporary impairment losses, noninterest income increased to $2.43 million and $7.36 million for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $2.34 million and $6.88 million for the same periods last year. Income from Merchants Trust Company division increased to $539 thousand and $1.59 million for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $441 thousand and $1.26 million for the same periods last year, a result of a combination of increased sales and better market performance. Revenue related to service charges on deposits decreased to $1.22 million for the third quarter of 2010 compared to $1.49 million for the third quarter of last year, and to $3.85 million for the first nine months of 2010 compared to $4.22 million for the same period last year. These decreases are primarily a result of reduced overdraft service charge revenue. Net overdraft fee revenue for the third quarter of 2010 was $1.00 million and was $3.20 million year to date, compared to $1.25 million for the third quarter of 2009 and $3.51 million for the first nine months of 2009. Reductions in overdraft fee revenue are almost entirely a result of legislative changes that went into effect on August 15, 2010. At this point it is not possible to predict the ultimate impact of the legislative change on future overdraft income. At the same time Other noninterest income increased to $1.08 million from $952 thousand for the third quarter of 2010 compared to 2009, and increased to $3.18 million from $2.88 million for the first nine months of 2010 compared to 2009. This increase is primarily a result of increased net debit card income. The recently enacted Dodd-Frank bill authorizes the Federal Reserve Board to regulate debit card interchange fees; although the changes are aimed at large banks it is possible that all banks will be impacted. It is not possible to predict what impact the changes will have on Merchants debit card revenue.Total noninterest expense increased to $10.00 million from $9.80 million for the first nine months of 2010 compared to 2009; and decreased to $29.09 million from $29.68 million for the first nine months of 2010 compared to 2009. There were a number of increases and decreases that contributed to this overall decrease. Salaries and wages increased to $4.10 million and $11.70 million for the third quarter and first nine months of 2010 compared to $3.68 million and $10.30 million for the same periods in 2009. Merchants has added staff in its corporate banking and trust areas during 2010. Additionally, Merchants’ strong results for the first nine months of 2010 compared to 2009 have led to a higher incentive accrual for 2010. Merchants’ FDIC insurance expense for 2010 is lower than 2009 as a result of the $630 thousand special assessment recorded during the second quarter of 2009. Additionally, Merchants booked expense recoveries and gains during 2010 related to sales of OREO properties leading to a negative year to date expense of $299 thousand compared to an expense of $305 thousand for the first nine months of 2009. During 2009, Other noninterest expenses were negatively impacted by prepayment penalties on FHLB debt totaling $280 thousand for the third quarter of 2009 and $584 thousand for the first nine months of 2009.Michael R. Tuttle, Merchants’ President and Chief Executive Officer; and Janet P. Spitler, Merchants’ Chief Financial Officer, will host a conference call to discuss these earnings results at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, October 27, 2010.

For further information, please refer to Merchants’ reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Merchants Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBVT), the parent company of Merchants Bank, today announced net income of $4.50 million and $12.92 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.73 and $2.10 for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010, respectively. This compares with net income of $3.71 million and $8.68 million or diluted earnings per share of $0.61 and $1.42 for the same periods in 2009. Merchants previously announced the declaration of a dividend of $0.28 per share, payable November 18, 2010, to shareholders of record as of November 4, 2010. The return on average assets was 1.25% and 1.21% for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010, respectively, compared to 1.07% and 0.85% for the same periods in 2009. The return on average equity was 18.39% and 18.14% for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010, respectively, compared to 17.37% and 13.93% for the same periods in 2009.”We are continuing the trend from the first half of this year with our strong core earnings this quarter. Absent the net impact of securities transactions and OREO recoveries, net income is up 16% for the third quarter of 2010 compared to last year and 33% compared to the first nine months of 2009,” commented Michael R. Tuttle, Merchants’ President and Chief Executive Officer.Merchants’ earnings for the third quarter and first nine months of 2010 were positively impacted by security gains and improvements in asset quality. Merchants recognized $596 thousand and $1.73 million in pre-tax security gains, net of impairment losses, during the third quarter and first nine months of 2010, respectively. Merchants recorded a $400 thousand negative provision for credit losses during the third quarter of 2010, and has recorded a $200 thousand provision for credit losses for the first nine months of 2010 compared to $600 thousand for the third quarter of 2009 and $3.50 million for the first nine months of 2009. The negative provision was a result of net recoveries of previously charged off loans during the quarter of $415 thousand combined with a more than 25% reduction in internally classified loans since June 30, 2010. In addition, Merchants’ non-performing loans decreased to $3.44 million at September 30, 2010 from $8.33 million at June 30, 2010 and $14.48 million at December 31, 2009.”The positive trend in asset quality continued during the third quarter. Total nonperforming assets have been reduced by $11.68 million from December 31, 2009 and are now just 0.38% of total loans. Current trends are very encouraging and our outlook on credit quality remains positive based on recent developments,” stated Mr. Tuttle.Merchants’ quarterly average loans were $917.68 million, a decrease of $3.16 million over the fourth quarter of 2009, and ending balances were $906.91 million, $11.63 million lower than balances at December 31, 2009. Loan demand in Merchants’ markets remained soft during the first nine months of 2010; many businesses are continuing to pay down term debt and substantially reducing utilization of credit lines. This trend combined with the previously discussed reduction in substandard loans has dampened growth in the loan portfolio this year. The following table summarizes the components of Merchants’ loan portfolio as of the periods indicated: Merchants Bancshares, Inc.

McGeady has X-factor – O’Neill

admin no comments

first_img That quality may be just what is required if the Republic are to break down what is sure to be the massed ranks of the Gibraltar rearguard in Dublin on Saturday evening. Allen Bula’s men managed to frustrate Poland for much of the opening 45 minutes of their opening qualifier last month with O’Neill adamant that the full-time scoreline of 7-0 did not fairly reflect just how difficult they had made life for the Poles. He said: “We have to try everything. We have try to keep possession of the ball and try to move it quickly enough so that we are creating openings. “In the early stages of the match, Gibraltar were happy for Poland just to have the ball and Poland certainly for the first 15 minutes until the got the goal, played largely in front of Gibraltar, and Gibraltar were quite happy. “We have to try to make in-roads into breaking them down.” The 28-year-old Everton winger produced a moment of sublime brilliance to hand the Republic a priceless Euro 2016 qualifier victory in Georgia last month just when his country needed him the most to leave team-mates and spectators stunned. Like many flair players, consistency has been an issue over the years, but having seen his contribution in Tbilisi at close hand, defender Marc Wilson is looking for more of the same from a man with Jekyll and Hyde tendencies. Aiden McGeady continues to play the dual role of magician and frustrator-in-chief as he prepares to win his 71st Republic of Ireland cap. Wilson said: “You see Aiden in training every day and any time I have trained with him, he can be a magician or he can drive you mad sometimes. “But he is a great lad and he’s got great ability. It just so happens on the night, he showed a bit of magic and scored that great goal for us.” Ireland manager Martin O’Neill, of course, knows McGeady well from their time together at Celtic and is only too aware of his twin capacities to thrill and disappoint. But there are signs that the Glasgow-born midfielder is starting to produce on a regular basis for both club and country with his move to the Barclays Premier League and a reunion with the Ulsterman perhaps key factors. Asked if he, like Wilson, was at times driven mad by McGeady, O’Neill said with a smile: “Absolutely. “Yesterday, he had the ball in the middle of the field, he tried to do a trick, he lost it and the other team went down and scored a goal. Aiden just shrugged and said, ‘Well, I’ll wait until Saturday’. “He’s a great player, a really great player. He has got the ability. I said before, he is the only player who could have scored the goal he did on the pitch, and it’s nice to have him. “He has that and sometimes he will drive you mad, but he has got just that X-factor.” Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgKOLKATA: He has big shoes to fill but Hyderabad FC’s new coach Manuel Marquez is ready to take the challenge head on and feels the pressure to perform can bring out the best in him and his side when they take the field in the upcoming season of the Indian Super League (ISL).Former UD Las Palmas coach Marquez was appointed in a hurry after Hyderabad’s preparation for the season was disrupted by Albert Roca’s decision to vacate the role of the head coach and become FC Barcelona first team’s new fitness coach after he was offered the job by the Catalan giants. “When you arrive at a new club, it’s always a big responsibility. We are used to taking over as the new head coach two months before the beginning of the Championship in Spain. In this case, it is quite challenging too. But I know what this project at Hyderabad is exactly and so we are prepared for the season,” Marquez told IANS in an interview on Friday. The newbies of Indian football finished rock-bottom in their debut season last time, managing only 10 points from 18 matches. Since then, the team management joined hands with German football giants Borussia Dortmund (BVB) last month in a bid to strengthen their academy structure as well as guiding the club’s coaches on coaching education. Asked if there will be pressure on the 51-year-old replacing Roca who will now be part of Barcelona first team coaching staff and has also tasted success in Indian football, Marquez said: “I like the pressure. If you have pressure, it means that you are in for a great challenge and I’m sure that our work will be good. We’ll put in a lot of passion and we want our fans to be proud of us. For me, one of the key aspects is that all the people, the fans, players, staff, and the board have to go in the same direction.” Roca guided Bengaluru FC to a historic AFC Cup final in 2016 and also helped the ISL side reach the final of the league. At Hyderabad FC, Roca handpicked the players before his switch to Barcelona. “Yes, Albert chose the players, but they are really good players and all the coaches want these kinds of players in their team,” said Marquez who has worked with a number of top La Liga coaches, including current CD Leganes manager Javier Aguirre and former Barcelona and Real Betis coach Quique Setien. “I know all the staff as well, and Xavi (Gurri) the assistant coach has been with the team in the ISL last season. For me, I will have to surely adapt to India, the habits, the players, etc. But this is the same that happens in every team even in Spain. “When you look at it, it’s not the same to train in Espanyol (Barcelona) and then in Las Palmas (Canary Islands) or even in Croatia. I am sure that we will enjoy this experience and the season will be very good. The only thing that is different this year and season is the coronavirus pandemic, unfortunately. But this problem is present in the entire world, not only in India and we have to learn to co-exist with it.” IANS Also Watch: For Jobs, Assam Youth Compromises COVID Safety Normslast_img read more
