We note that results included Community National Bancorporation (CNB) for about one-half of the quarter, adding $240,000 to QCRH’s bottom line, led by a net interest margin of 3.72% (which compares to a stand-alone NIM of less than 3% for QCRH).
As previously announced, the CNB acquisition was completed on May 13, 2013 for a total of $19 million, $6 million of which was in cash and $13 million in common stock, adding total assets of $277.4 million, consisting primarily of loans totaling $190.7 million and a securities portfolio of $44.5 million, which were funded by $245.6 million of deposits and no borrowings.
Compared to the year-ago quarter, the second quarter reflected an 8% gain in net interest income to $15.7 million, mostly due to the CNB acquisition. Results were also boosted by a 26% gain in noninterest income to $5.1 million, which was partly offset by noninterest expense that rose 13% to $14.8 million.
Negatively, nonperforming loans climbed during the quarter by $10.3 million, or a whopping 52%, to $30.0 million, entirely erasing the improvement that occurred during the first quarter, driven by a few specific commercial credits moving to nonaccrual status at existing banks, as well as the addition of CNB's nonperforming assets.
We are maintaining our diluted EPS estimates at $2.00 for 2013 and $2.15 for 2014. A primary driver of profitability for the combined company going forward is the opportunity for substantial cost savings, which QCRH estimates will run about $2 million annually.
