BancFirst Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter Earnings

OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BancFirst Corporation (NASDAQ GS: BANF) reported net income of $13.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, up from $12.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Diluted earnings per share was $0.88 compared to $0.79 for the same quarter of the prior year.  Net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $54.3 million, up from $51.9 million for 2012.  Diluted earnings per share for the year was $3.49 compared to $3.36 for 2012.

Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $41.9 million compared to $42.3 million for the same period of the prior year.  The net interest margin for the quarter was 3.00% compared to 3.11% for the fourth quarter of 2012, as interest rates have remained at historically low levels.  The Company's provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter was $454,000 compared to $2.4 million a year ago.  The decrease was primarily due to reductions in adversely graded loans.  Net charge-offs to average loans for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 0.01% versus 0.03% for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Noninterest income totaled $22.2 million compared to $21.8 million for the same quarter of 2012.   Noninterest expense for the quarter was $43.9 million compared to $43.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Net expense from other real estate owned was a negative $436,000 due to gains on sales of properties during the fourth quarter.  During the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company's effective tax rate decreased to 30.2% compared to 32.7% for the fourth quarter of 2012 due to tax credits and other non-routine tax adjustments. 

The Company's total assets once again increased in the fourth quarter of the year to $6.0 billion comparable to year end 2012. Loans totaled $3.4 billion, up $144.7 million from December 31, 2012.  Total deposits of $5.4 billion were comparable to year end 2012.  The Company's total stockholders' equity was $557.0 million at December 31, 2013, an increase of $37.4 million, or 7.2%, for the year.

Asset quality remained strong.  Nonperforming and restructured assets continued on a downward trend, decreasing to 0.69% of total assets compared to 0.81% at year end 2012.  The allowance to total loans decreased slightly to 1.15% from 1.19% at year end 2012.

During the quarter, BancFirst announced that it was recognized as one of the top financial institutions in America by Forbes Magazine. Forbes cited a study by Carnegie Mellon studied that reviewed the consumer privacy practices of 3,422 banks for their data collection policy, as well as the sharing and selling of customer data for marketing purposes.  According to the study released earlier this year, BancFirst was selected as one of the top banks in the nation based on how it handles personal information collected, and how it protects the privacy of its customers.
