and Loan Association (NASDAQ: VFEDC) today reported its seventh consecutive quarterly profit, with net earnings of $1.1 million, or $.20 per share, for its third quarter ended Sept. 30, 1991. This compares with net earnings of $5.5 million, or $.88 per share, for the same period in 1990.
Net earnings for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1991 were $8.3, or $1.44 per share, compared with $21.5 million, or $3.51 per share, in the prior year period. Operating earnings, before nonrecurring items, were $2.3 million and $9.1 million for the three-and nine-month periods ended Sept. 30, 1991. For the corresponding 1990 periods, operating earnings, before nonrecurring items, were $3.9 million and $13.6 million, respectively. Average total assets declined during the 1991 three-and nine-month periods by 15 percent and 12 percent, respectively, from the corresponding 1990 periods. At Sept. 30, 1991, nonperforming real estate loans and foreclosed properties were $99 million, up from $45 million at Dec. 31, 1990. Nonperforming real estate loans and foreclosed properties represented 4.2 percent and 1.7 percent, respectively, of total assets at Sept. 30, 1991 and Dec. 31, 1990. At Sept. 30, 1991, total loss reserves were $30 million, of which $16 million were general valuation reserves. As a percent to total real estate loans (excluding loans securitized) and foreclosed properties, general valuation reserves were 1.30 percent at Sept. 30, 1991, up from .60 percent at Dec. 31, 1990. For the 1991 three- and nine-month periods, loan loss provisions were $14.1 million and $19.2 million respectively. These provisions included additions to general valuation reserves for $12.1 million and $14.4 million, respectively. For the corresponding 1990 periods, loan loss provisions were $.8 million and $2.4 million. There were no additions to general valuation reserves during 1990. In spite of its two-year earnings record, Valley Federal had shareholders' equity of only $2.4 million at Sept. 30, 1991. Though substantially improved from negative shareholder's equity of $31.4 million at Dec. 31, 1989, Valley Federal still required an additional $140 million of total capital to comply with current regulatory minimums at Sept. 30, 1991. At Dec. 31, 1989, Valley Federal required an additional $265 million of total capital to satisfy its then minimum capital requirements. Valley Federal has an approved capital plan with the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) that requires compliance with regulatory capital minimums by Dec. 31, 1991. Valley Federal has no prospect of achieving capital compliance by this deadline. Valley Federal has applied to the OTS for an extension of the capital plan and the deadline for capital compliance. The OTS has refused. The OTS has executed an agreement under which it will place Valley Federal into the Accelerated Resolution Program (ARP). The ARP is a joint regulatory effort of the OTS and the Resolution Trust Corp. to assist in the sale of troubled savings associations. Valley Federal is considered troubled because it does not meet its minimum capital requirements. During the ARP process, current management continues to operate the institution, depositors are not affected and deposits remain insured to the full extent of the law. The shareholders of Valley Federal are unlikely to receive any consideration for their shares when Valley Federal is sold. Valley Federal's consolidated assets were $2.3 billion at Sept. 30, 1991, a decline from $2.7 billion at Dec. 31, 1990. At Sept. 30, 1991, Valley Federal maintained liquidity well in excess of regulatory requirements. Valley Federal currently operates 24 retail banking offices in California. The company's deposits are insured by the FDIC and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government.
