Yadkin Valley Bank & Trust’s parent company posted a profit of $10.2 million during the second quarter of 2012.
It was the fourth consecutive quarter in which the Elkin-based company posted a profit.
“Continuing to execute our game plan is proving to be the right strategy for our company. We are glad to see our fourth consecutive quarter of profitability, and a nice boost to net income and capital with the reversal of our deferred tax asset valuation allowance,” said Joe Towell, president and CEO of Yadkin Valley Financial Corp. “Excluding the reversal of the valuation allowance of $9.8 million, we posted after-tax net income of $1.2 million before preferred dividends.”
“While we are pleased with our results this quarter, we remain intently focused on problem asset resolution,” Towell said. “And we recognize that this is not a smooth process due to economic conditions and other factors beyond our control.”
On Sunday, Yadkin Valley Financial Corp. was trading as $2.64 a share. In January 2007, it was trading as high as $20.51 a share. In the third quarter of 2011, it posted a $2.9 million profit, in the fourth quarter of 2011 it posted a $2.15 million profit, and in the first quarter of 2012 posted a $3.5 million profit.
The results were a major improvement from the results of the second quarter of 2011, in which the company posted a loss of $20.9 million.
