LOS ANGELES, July 24, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) - City National Corporation (NYSE:CYN), the parent company of wholly owned City National Bank, today reported second-quarter 2008 net income of $35.5 million, or $0.73 per share. In the second quarter of 2007, the company earned $1.19 per share on net income of $59.2 million.

Year to date, City National has earned $79.5 million, or $1.64 per share, on revenue of $459.6 million. In the first half of 2007, the company earned net income of $115.7 million, or $2.34 per share, on revenue of $439.8 million.

The company also announced today that its board of directors has again declared a 2008 quarterly common stock cash dividend of $0.48 per share, payable on August 20, 2008 to stockholders of record on August 6, 2008.

SECOND-QUARTER 2008 HIGHLIGHTS

 * City National's second-quarter revenue grew to $231.6 million, up 2 percent from $226.6 million in the second quarter of 2007. * Average loans reached $12.1 billion, up 10 percent from the same period last year. * Average core deposits were stable as compared with the second quarter of 2007 and up 4 percent from the first quarter of this year. * Second-quarter 2008 net income reflects a $35 million provision for credit losses and loan growth. The second-quarter provision adds $17 million to City National's allowance for loan and lease losses. At June 30, 2008, the company's allowance increased to $185.1 million, or 1.52 percent of total loans and leases, compared to $168.3 million, or 1.43 percent of total loans and leases, at the end of the first quarter. Total nonperforming assets were $115.3 million, down from $117.4 million at March 31 of this year. The company made no provision for potential credit losses in the second quarter of 2007. * City National's net interest margin averaged 4.23 percent in the second quarter of 2008, compared to 4.26 percent in the first quarter of this year. * Noninterest income totaled $81.5 million, up 11 percent from the second quarter of 2007. Noninterest income accounts for 35 percent of City National's total revenue. * The company remained well capitalized. Its period-end ratio of equity-to-total-assets at June 30, 2008 was 10.21 percent, compared to 10.26 percent at June 30, 2007 and 10.56 at March 31 of this year.

"City National's profitable second quarter demonstrated that its businesses generated solid growth as revenue, assets, core deposits, loans and noninterest income all grew significantly from the first quarter," said President and Chief Executive Officer Russell Goldsmith. "At the same time, the further deterioration in the housing market and its impact on our homebuilder clients warranted both higher credit costs and a $17 million 'build' to our strong credit reserves.

"City National remains profitable, well-reserved and well-capitalized in part because it has no subprime, brokered or option ARM mortgages, no subprime-based CDOs and, effectively, no auto loans or consumer credit card issues."

ASSETS

Total assets at June 30, 2008 were $16.3 billion, up 3 percent from the second quarter of 2007. This marked the first time that City National's assets exceeded $16 billion.

City National's second-quarter return on average assets was 0.89 percent, and its return on average equity was 8.42 percent.

REVENUE

Revenue grew to $231.6 million, up 2 percent from both the second quarter of 2007 and the first quarter of this year, reflecting the company's solid operating performance. Loans and noninterest income grew at double-digit rates from the prior year. Core deposits were stable and so was the company's net interest margin.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income was $153.3 million in the second quarter, down $2.9 million from the same period last year due to the decline in short-term interest rates. Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income in the first quarter of 2008 was $151.3 million.

Second-quarter average loan balances reached $12.1 billion, up 10 percent from the second quarter of 2007 and 3 percent from the first quarter of this year. Commercial loans increased 5 percent from the first quarter, while commercial real estate and construction loans together were up 1 percent due in large part to an increase in existing line utilization. Average single-family residential mortgage lending to City National's private banking clients rose 3 percent.

Average securities for the second quarter of 2008 totaled $2.5 billion, down $491 million from the same period last year and $71 million from the first quarter of 2008. Cash flow from the investment portfolio was used to fund growth in loans. The average duration of total available-for-sale securities at June 30, 2008 was 3.6 years, compared with 3.3 years at the end of the second quarter of 2007 and 3.5 years at March 31, 2008.

At June 30, 2008, City National's prime lending rate was 5.0 percent, down 325 basis points from June 30, 2007 and 25 basis points from March 31, 2008.

City National's net interest margin in the second quarter of 2008 averaged 4.23 percent, compared with 4.26 percent in the first quarter of 2008. The lower yield on loans was mostly offset by the lower cost of interest-bearing liabilities as well as growth in average demand deposits.

Second-quarter average deposits totaled $11.7 billion, up 2 percent from the first quarter. Average deposits fell 7 percent from the second quarter of 2007 as the company was able to reduce its holdings of higher-cost time deposits.

Average core deposits grew 4 percent from the first quarter of this year and were unchanged from the second quarter of 2007.

Average noninterest-bearing deposits were up 4 percent from the first quarter and 1 percent from the second quarter of 2007.

Title and escrow deposit balances averaged $1.0 billion, virtually unchanged from the first quarter of this year and down $300 million from the second quarter of 2007.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income reached $81.5 million in the second quarter of 2008, an 11 percent increase from the same period one year ago, due to fee income generated by wealth management, international banking and cash management.

For the quarter ending June 30, 2008, noninterest income accounted for 35 percent of City National's total revenue, up from 33 percent for the quarter ending June 30, 2007.

Wealth Management

City National's assets under management were down 6 percent to $33.8 billion in the second quarter of 2008 from the year-earlier period, due primarily to general market conditions and in part to an anticipated shift of funds by the former owner of City National's institutional asset management affiliate to its in-house investment manager. As a result, trust and investment fees were down 2 percent from the second quarter of 2007. Brokerage and mutual fund fees rose 34 percent, due primarily to an increase in money market funds.

Other Noninterest Income

Income from cash management and deposit transaction fees rose 44 percent from the same period of last year and 10 percent from the first quarter of 2008, due to the impact of declining interest rates on the value of compensating deposit balances and the sale of additional cash management services to new and existing clients. Fee income from foreign exchange services and letters of credit grew 8 percent from the second quarter of 2007 and 6 percent from the first quarter of this year.

Other service charges and fees were $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2008, up 13 percent from the year-ago period, due primarily to higher income from debit and credit card fees.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Second-quarter 2008 noninterest expense amounted to $141.5 million, up 7 percent from the second quarter of 2007, but down slightly from the first quarter of this year. The increase from last year was due in part to $1.4 million of additional expense for FDIC premiums. Excluding higher FDIC premiums, City National's second-quarter noninterest expense grew 5.6 percent.

City National's second-quarter efficiency ratio was 60.13 percent, compared with 57.69 percent in the second quarter of 2007. The year-over-year increase was due primarily to the continued expansion of City National's fee-based businesses, including the addition of Convergent Wealth Advisors.

CREDIT QUALITY

City National recorded a $35 million provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2008. After net charge-offs, this provision adds $17 million to the company's allowance for loan and lease losses. It reflects management's ongoing assessment of the credit quality of the company's portfolio, which is affected by various economic trends, including significant weakness in the housing sector. Additional factors affecting the provision include net loan charge-offs and nonaccrual loans (principally linked to the homebuilding sector), risk-rating migration and growth in the portfolio.

Nonaccrual loans of $106.2 million and other real estate owned (OREO) assets of $9.1 million at June 30, 2008 declined slightly to $115.3 million, or 0.95 percent of total loans and other nonperforming assets, from $117.4 million, or 1.00 percent, in the first quarter and increased from $22.3 million, or 20 basis points, at June 30, 2007.

Net loan charge-offs for the quarter were $18.9 million, compared with net charge-offs of $12.1 million in the first quarter and $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2007. The increase in net charge-offs occurred overwhelmingly in the residential homebuilder portfolio. About 75 percent of second-quarter charge-offs and loans on nonaccrual are related to residential construction and development projects.

City National's homebuilder loans amounted to $559 million, or 4.6 percent of the company's $12.2 billion loan portfolio, at June 30, 2008. These loans generally have a guarantor or other credit enhancement support. The bank is actively managing each homebuilder loan and taking appropriate steps to mitigate risks and loss exposure.

Excluding loans to homebuilders, City National's construction and commercial real estate portfolio continued to perform satisfactorily. This portfolio is diverse in terms of geography and product type. It consists primarily of recourse loans to well-established real estate developers in dense urban markets. Most of these developers are clients with whom the bank has significant long-term relationships.

The company's commercial loan portfolio also continued to perform satisfactorily.

City National's residential mortgage loans and home-equity loans continue to perform well. Their average loan-to-value ratios at origination are 50 percent and 54 percent, respectively. None of the loans have been originated through brokers or third parties. City National has not originated or purchased subprime or option adjustable rate mortgages.

At June 30, 2008, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $185.1 million, or 1.52 percent of total loans and leases. Consistent with its methodology, the bank maintains an additional $24.2 million in reserves for off-balance-sheet credit commitments.

INCOME TAXES

The company's second-quarter 2008 effective tax rate was 35.6 percent, compared to 37.0 percent in the second quarter of last year. The lower tax rate for the second quarter of this year is attributable to a decrease in pretax income and a decrease in permanent tax benefits. The effective rate for the first quarter of this year was 35.2 percent.

FIRST-HALF 2008 HIGHLIGHTS

 * Year to date, City National has earned $79.5 million, or $1.64 per share, compared with $115.7 million, or $2.34 per share for the first six months of 2007. * Revenue for the first six months of this year grew to $459.6 million, up 5 percent from the first half of 2007. * Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income amounted to $304.6 million, virtually unchanged from the first six months of 2007.

2008 OUTLOOK
