(Nasdaq: PBCT) has announced net income of $46.0 million,or $0.14 per share, for the third quarter of 2008, compared to $43.0million, or $0.13 per share, for the second quarter of 2008 and $57.6million, or $0.20 per share, for the third quarter of 2007. Earnings forthe second and third quarters of 2008 reflect continued low levels of netloan charge-offs and further benefit from previously announcedcost-reduction initiatives. People’s United Financial completed its acquisition of ChittendenCorporation on January 1, 2008. Accordingly, People’s United Financial’sthird quarter 2007 results do not include the results of ChittendenCorporation and are not directly comparable to the current quarter’searnings. For the third quarter of 2008, return on average tangible assets was0.99 percent and return on average tangible stockholders’ equity was 5.0percent, compared to 0.91 percent and 4.7 percent, respectively, for thesecond quarter of 2008. The Board of Directors of People’s United Financial declared a $0.15per share quarterly dividend, payable November 15, 2008 to shareholders ofrecord on November 1, 2008. Based on the closing stock price on October 15,2008, the dividend yield on People’s United Financial common stock is 3.9percent. President and Chief Executive Officer, Philip R. Sherringham stated,”Our strength and stability have clearly differentiated our bank in thewake of the current economic and financial sector turmoil. Our performancethis quarter continues to be a reflection of our fortress balance sheet andcontinued strong asset quality, and was further bolstered by an improvementin the net interest margin.” Sherringham added, “We continue to generate healthy loan growth acrossour core lending businesses. Our average commercial banking and home equityloan portfolios increased $146 million, or 6 percent annualized, from thesecond quarter of 2008.” Sherringham concluded, “We remain firmly committed to our goal ofenhancing our premier regional banking franchise. While our strategic focusremains on growth through acquisitions, we continue to invest in ourcommercial, retail banking and wealth management businesses throughout NewEngland. Our balance sheet continues to be funded almost entirely bydeposits and stockholders’ equity. Given the many challenges of today’senvironment, the strength of our capital and liquidity positions, assetquality and earnings set us apart from most in the industry.” “Key drivers of the company’s performance this quarter were an increasein the net interest margin, expense control and ongoing strong assetquality,” said Paul D. Burner, Senior Executive Vice President and ChiefFinancial Officer. “The 15 basis point improvement in the net interestmargin from the second quarter of 2008 reflects the benefits fromdisciplined loan and deposit pricing. Non-interest expense decreasedslightly from the second quarter of 2008, primarily reflecting thecontinued benefit from cost-savings initiatives announced earlier thisyear.” At September 30, 2008, non-performing assets totaled $91.4 million, a$5.0 million increase from June 30, 2008. Non-performing assets equaled0.64 percent of total loans, REO and repossessed assets, compared to 0.60percent at June 30, 2008. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage oftotal loans increased to 1.08 percent at September 30, 2008 compared to1.06 percent at June 30, 2008. Third quarter net loan charge-offs totaled $4.0 million compared to$2.4 million in the second quarter of 2008. Net loan charge-offs as apercent of average loans on an annualized basis were 0.11 percent in thethird quarter of 2008 compared to 0.07 percent in this year’s secondquarter. The provision for loan losses this quarter reflects a $2.8 millionincrease in the allowance for loan losses to $154.5 million at September30, 2008. Commenting on asset quality, Burner stated, “While we expect the levelof non-performing assets to fluctuate in response to changing economic andmarket conditions, we remain comfortable with the current levels and do notsee any pervasive weakness in any sector of the loan portfolio. The ratioof non-performing loans to total loans was stable at 0.59 percent atSeptember 30, 2008 and net loan charge-offs remain extremely low. We feelthat the loan portfolio continues to benefit from our stringentunderwriting standards.” Conference Call On October 17, 2008, at 11 a.m., Eastern Time, People’s UnitedFinancial will host a conference call to discuss this earningsannouncement.

Fourth Quarter Earnings Release People’s United Financial expects to release its fourth quarter andfull year 2008 earnings on January 22, 2009. Selected Financial Terms In addition to evaluating People’s United Financial’s results ofoperations in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles(“GAAP”), management routinely supplements this evaluation with an analysisof certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as the efficiency ratio.Management believes this non-GAAP financial measure provides informationuseful to investors in understanding People’s United Financial’s underlyingoperating performance and trends, and facilitates comparisons with theperformance of other banks and thrifts. The efficiency ratio, which represents an approximate measure of thecost required by People’s United Financial to generate a dollar of revenue,is the ratio of total non-interest expense (excluding goodwill impairmentcharges, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and fair valueadjustments, losses on real estate assets and nonrecurring expenses) to netinterest income on a fully taxable equivalent basis (excluding fair valueadjustments) plus total non-interest income (including the fully taxableequivalent adjustment on bank-owned life insurance income, and excludinggains and losses on sales of assets, other than residential mortgage loans,and nonrecurring income). People’s United Financial generally considers anitem of income or expense to be nonrecurring if it is not similar to anitem of income or expense of a type incurred within the last two years andis not similar to an item of income or expense of a type reasonablyexpected to be incurred within the following two years. Managementconsiders the efficiency ratio to be more representative of People’s UnitedFinancial’s ongoing operating efficiency, as the excluded items aregenerally related to external market conditions and non-routinetransactions. 3Q 2008 Financial Highlights Summary — Net income totaled $46.0 million, or $0.14 per share. — Net interest income on a fully taxable equivalent basis totaled $160.8 million. — Net interest margin increased 15 basis points from 2Q08 to 3.71%. — Provision for loan losses totaled $6.8 million. — Net loan charge-offs totaled $4.0 million in 3Q08 compared to $2.4 million in 2Q08. — The allowance for loan losses was increased by $2.8 million in 3Q08 from 2Q08 levels. — Non-interest income totaled $74.2 million, a 1% increase from 2Q08. — Non-interest expense totaled $158.7 million, a $4.2 million, or 3%, decrease from 2Q08. — Effective income tax rate was 32.9%.

Sex changes often leave people ‘badly damaged’, says expert

first_imgNZ Herald 2 November 2017Family First Comment: Well said, Lord Robert Winston.And congrats to the NZ Herald for being brave and printing this story. Now wait for the backlash from “transactivists” who don’t want the truth spoken, and don’t want to see people healed in the proper way so that nature is reinforced.People who change their gender often end up with horrendous results or are left feeling damaged, Lord Robert Winston has said.The British scientist and TV presenter warned the implications of gender reassignment surgery were not properly understood, with complications that could affect fertility.On BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said “results are horrendous in a big proportion of cases”.He said 40 per cent of those who undergo vaginal reconstruction surgery experienced complications requiring further surgery, and 23 per cent who had breasts removed felt “uncomfortable with what they’ve done”.”What I’ve been seeing in a fertility clinic are the long-term results of often very unhappy people who now feel quite badly damaged.”The effects of taking hormones were “likely to affect reproductive function”, he said.Professor Gary Butler, an expert in care for transgender children and teenagers, agreed that the effect on fertility was a “worry”.The consultant in paediatric and adolescent medicine at University College Hospital in London also agreed that doctors had to be “very careful” about introducing therapy before puberty.Experts have raised concerns about the increasing number of children who question their gender identity after figures showed the total had increased dramatically in five years.Children who want to transition are not offered surgery but can be given synthetic hormones to slow puberty.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/index.cfm?objectid=11939871&ref=twitterlast_img read more

Trump wants to slow COVID testing to avoid ‘bad statistics’

first_imgTrump told supporters at his campaign rally that the U.S. has tested 25 million people, far more than any other country. The “bad part,” Trump said, is that widespread testing leads to logging more cases of the virus. TULSA, Okla. –  President Donald Trump said Saturday he’s asked his administration to slow down coronavirus testing because robust testing turns up too many cases of COVID-19. President Donald Trump arrives on stage to speak at a campaign rally at the BOK Center, Saturday, June 20, 2020, in Tulsa, Okla.
