TIB Financial Corp. Reports Fourth Quarter Results

NAPLES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

TIB Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: TIBB) a majority-owned subsidiary of Capital Bank Financial Corp. (“CBF”; formerly known as North American Financial Holdings, Inc.), today reported its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter of 2011. Operating and financial highlights include the following:

  • The Company reported a net loss of $819,000 and net income of $2.8 million, or $(0.07) and $0.23 per diluted share for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011. Excluding the impairment charge recorded during the fourth quarter as discussed below, the Company would have reported net income of approximately $933,000 and $4.6 million, or $0.08 and $0.37 per diluted share for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011, respectively.
  • Due to the termination of employment of several employees of the Company's registered investment advisor, Naples Capital Advisors, Inc., and a subsequent decrease of assets under management, an impairment of the related customer relationship intangible asset of $2.9 million was recorded in the fourth quarter.
  • The Company holds a 21% ownership interest in Capital Bank, NA at December 31, 2011 which has 143 branches and $6.5 billion in assets in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Equity in earnings of Capital Bank, NA during the fourth quarter was $1.5 million and $4.1 million during 2011.

“Thanks to the hard work of team mates across the company, I am very proud to be able to say that today, Capital Bank, NA is a single bank, with 143 branches operating under one brand, offering a common set of products and processing on one IT system. That is a huge accomplishment for us in such a short period of time,” stated Gene Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CBF and TIB Financial Corp.

“We are pleased with continued success in generating new loans and core deposits. These activities are helping customers achieve their goals and will lead to higher profitability for the company,” commented Chris Marshall, Chief Financial Officer of CBF and TIB Financial Corp.

Bank Merger

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. 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.

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, N.A., 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%.

Due to its ownership level, the Company's investment in Capital Bank, NA is recorded as an equity-method investment in that entity. As of December 31, 2011, the Company's investment in Capital Bank, NA totaled $200.8 million, which reflected the Company's pro rata ownership of Capital Bank, NA's total shareholders' equity at that date. 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.

As of December 31, 2011, following the mergers, Capital Bank, NA had total assets of $6.5 billion, total deposits of $5.1 billion and shareholders' equity of $939.8 million and operated 143 branches in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

The following table presents summarized financial information for Capital Bank, NA:

Financial Discussion

The Company reported a net loss for the fourth quarter of $819,000 compared to net income of $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2011 and net income of $560,000 for the fourth quarter of 2010. Due to the Merger discussed above and the resulting deconsolidation of TIB Bank on April 29, 2011, the operating results for the fourth quarter of 2011 includes three months of equity in income from its investment in Capital Bank, NA which amounted to $1.5 million, net of tax and therefore are generally not comparable to the operations prior to the third quarter. 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.

Due to measurement period revisions to the estimated acquisition date fair values of certain loans acquired during 2011 in the acquisition of Capital Bank, an increase of $98,000 was retrospectively adjusted in the Company's equity in income of Capital Bank, NA for the third quarter of 2011.

During 2011, the Company's registered investment advisor, Naples Capital Advisors, Inc.'s 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 the $2.9 million impairment discussed above. The remaining value of the customer relationship intangible at December 31, 2011 was approximately $191,000.

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.
