Average Loans Grow 12 Percent to Record $11.2 Billion
LOS ANGELES, Oct 17, 2007 (PrimeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) - City National Corporation (NYSE:CYN), the parent company of wholly owned City National Bank, today reported third-quarter 2007 net income of $60.1 million, or $1.22 per share, up from $59.0 million, or $1.20 per share, for the third quarter of 2006.

Year to date, City National has earned $175.8 million, or $3.56 per share, on revenue of $675.1 million. In the first three quarters of 2006, the company earned net income of $175.0 million, or $3.47 per share, on revenue of $633.4 million. Earnings per share grew 3 percent from the first three quarters of 2006.

THIRD-QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

* City National's third-quarter average loan balances grew to a record $11.2 billion, up 12 percent from the third quarter of 2006.

* Average deposits were $12.4 billion, up 5 percent from the third quarter of 2006. Average core deposits were $10.4 billion, also up 5 percent.

* Noninterest income grew to $81.2 million, a 26 percent increase from the third quarter of 2006, and now accounts for 35 percent of City National's total revenue.

* Assets under direct management amounted to $37.1 billion, a 37 percent increase from the third quarter of 2006. Assets under management or administration grew 23 percent to $59.2 billion.

* The company required no provision for credit losses and remained adequately reserved at 1.36 percent of total loans.

* City National's third-quarter return on average equity was 14.69 percent and its return on average assets was 1.53 percent.

"City National's solid third-quarter performance in a more challenging economic environment underscores the fundamental strength and focus of our business," said President and Chief Executive Officer Russell Goldsmith. "Loans and revenue from wealth management, cash management and international services grew at double-digit rates. Deposits were stable and expense growth was moderate, taking into account our two recent acquisitions. Credit quality continued to hold up reasonably well despite the softness in the home-building sector of the economy. City National's consistent performance in this quarter also reflects the fact that it does not have any subprime mortgages or subprime CDOs in our loan or securities portfolios."

ASSETS

Total assets at September 30, 2007 were $15.5 billion, up 6 percent from one year ago, primarily due to City National's loan growth as well as the February 28, 2007 acquisition of Business Bank of Nevada.

REVENUE

Third-quarter revenue totaled $235.0 million, up 10 percent from the third quarter of 2006, due principally to the company's May 1, 2007 acquisition of Convergent Wealth Advisors, as well as the Business Bank of Nevada acquisition.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income reached $158.1 million in the third quarter of 2007, compared with $152.8 million for the same period last year. Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income in the second quarter of 2007 was $157.4 million.

Lending activity continued to grow in the third quarter. Average loan balances reached $11.2 billion, up 12 percent from one year ago and 2 percent from the second quarter of 2007.

Average commercial loans increased 18 percent from the same period last year and 1 percent from the second quarter of 2007. Average commercial real estate and construction loans together were up 8 percent from the third quarter of 2006 and 2 percent from the second quarter of this year. Average single-family residential mortgage lending rose 9 percent from one year ago and 3 percent from the second quarter of 2007. (City National does not make subprime or option adjustable rate mortgage loans.)

Average securities totaled $2.8 billion in the third quarter of 2007, down $413 million from one year ago and $113 million from the second quarter of 2007. The average duration of total available-for-sale securities at September 30, 2007 was 3.4 years, compared with 3.3 years at the end of the third quarter of 2006.

At September 30, 2007, the bank's prime rate was 7.75 percent, 50 basis points lower than it was at both September 30, 2006 and June 30, 2007.

 For the three months ended For the September 30, three months -------------------------- ended % June 30, % Dollars in millions 2007 2006 Change 2007 Change ------------------- ------------ ------- ------- ---------- ------ Average Loans $11,191.1 $10,013.1 12 $11,010.9 2 Average Total Securities 2,831.7 3,244.9 (13) 2,945.1 (4) Average Earning Assets 14,199.6 13,368.9 6 14,129.5 0 Average Deposits 12,442.2 11,905.2 5 12,569.9 (1) Average Core Deposits 10,388.0 9,905.8 5 10,503.4 (1) Fully Taxable- Equivalent Net Interest Income 158.1 152.8 4 157.4 0 Net Interest Margin 4.42% 4.53% (2) 4.47% (1)

City National's third-quarter net interest margin was 4.42 percent, compared with 4.53 percent during the same period last year and 4.47 percent in the second quarter of 2007. The 5 basis-point decline from the second quarter of this year was due primarily to loan growth and a decline in demand deposits related to the title and escrow business.

Average deposits totaled $12.4 billion, an increase of 5 percent from the third quarter of 2006 due primarily to the acquisition of Business Bank of Nevada as well as the growth of interest-bearing and time deposits. Average deposits were down 1 percent from the second quarter of this year.

Average noninterest-bearing deposits fell 3 percent from the third quarter of 2006 and 1 percent from the second quarter of this year, due to a decline in title and escrow deposit balances. Excluding title and escrow balances, noninterest-bearing deposits increased 1 percent from both the prior year and the prior quarter.

With the slowdown in housing sales, third-quarter title and escrow deposit balances averaged $1.18 billion, compared with $1.25 billion in the third quarter of 2006 and $1.26 billion in the second quarter of this year.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income reached $81.2 million in the third quarter of 2007, a 26 percent increase from the same period one year ago. Excluding the second-quarter acquisition of Convergent Wealth Advisors and the previously disclosed disposition of another investment affiliate in the fourth quarter of last year, third-quarter noninterest income grew 15 percent from the same period in 2006.

At September 30, 2007, noninterest income accounted for 35 percent of City National's total revenue for the first time, up from 30 percent at September 30, 2006.

Wealth Management

City National's assets under management or administration grew to a record $59.2 billion in the third quarter. As a result, trust and investment fees increased 25 percent over the same time last year. Third-quarter brokerage and mutual fund fees grew 19 percent from the third quarter of 2006.

Other Noninterest Income

Fee income from foreign exchange services and letters of credit grew 17 percent from the third quarter of 2006 and 6 percent from the second quarter of this year.

Income from cash management and deposit transaction fees rose 10 percent from the third quarter of last year and 4 percent from the second quarter of 2007, due largely to an increase in sales to new and existing clients.

Other service charges and fees were $7.3 million in the third quarter of 2007, up $1.1 million from one year ago.

The gain on sale of other assets was due largely to a $5.1 million gain from the recovery of an investment in liquidation, which was mostly offset by a $2.5 million loss on the sale of securities and approximately $1.2 million in additional income tax expense related to the expected resolution of two pending federal income tax matters.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Third-quarter 2007 noninterest expense amounted to $137.4 million, up 14 percent from the third quarter of 2006 and 3 percent from the second quarter of this year. Excluding the acquisitions of Convergent Wealth Advisors and Business Bank of Nevada, noninterest expense grew 5 percent from the third quarter of last year.

City National's efficiency ratio for the third quarter of 2007 was 57.67 percent, compared with 55.65 percent one year ago and 57.73 percent for the second quarter of this year. The year-over-year increase was due primarily to more normalized core deposit pricing and the continued expansion of City National's fee-based businesses, including the addition of Convergent Wealth Advisors.

CREDIT QUALITY

The quality of City National's $11.2 billion loan portfolio remained sound in the third quarter. At September 30, 2007, nonaccrual loans were $26.2 million, compared with $18.8 million at the same time last year and $22.3 million in the second quarter of 2007. Net loan charge-offs were $3.6 million in the third quarter of 2007, compared with net recoveries of $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2006 and net charge-offs of $2.3 million in the second quarter of this year.

Recent upheaval in the credit markets has had an impact on the nation's residential and for-sale housing industry. City National has two housing-related loan portfolios: The company makes loans to residential borrowers and for-sale housing developers. City National's $3.1 billion residential mortgage portfolio contains no subprime credits or option adjustable rate mortgage loans. The company makes mortgage loans as an accommodation to its private banking clients. These loans have an average loan-to-value ratio of 51 percent at origination.

City National's for-sale housing loans represent less than 5 percent of its $11.2 billion loan portfolio. Although today's market conditions are placing additional stress on the housing industry, City National's for-sale housing loans typically are recourse loans to borrowers with significant equity in their projects, most of which are in Southern California.

City National made no provision for credit losses in the third quarter. At September 30, 2007, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $152 million, or 1.36 percent of total loans. Continued organic loan growth and the possible effects of a further weakened economy increase the likelihood of provisioning in the future.

INCOME TAXES

The company's third-quarter 2007 effective tax rate was 38.4 percent, compared to 36.5 percent in the third quarter of last year and 37.0 percent in the second quarter of this year. The increase in the third-quarter effective tax rate from the second quarter of this year is primarily due to additional income tax expense related to the expected resolution of two pending federal income tax matters.

2007 OUTLOOK

City National's management continues to expect earnings per share this year to grow at a rate of between 3 percent and 5 percent as compared with 2006.

CAPITAL LEVELS

City National remains well capitalized. Total risk-based capital and Tier 1 risk-based capital ratios at September 30, 2007 were 12.01 percent and 9.57 percent, respectively, compared with the minimum regulatory standards of 10 percent and 6 percent for "well-capitalized" institutions. City National's Tier 1 leverage ratio at September 30, 2007 was 7.80 percent, well above the regulatory minimum ratio of 5 percent.

Total risk-based capital, Tier 1 risk-based capital and the Tier 1 leverage ratios at June 30, 2007 were 12.28 percent, 9.82 percent and 7.97 percent, respectively.

The period-end ratio of shareholders' equity to total assets at September 30, 2007 was 10.51 percent, compared to 9.91 percent at the same time last year, and 10.26 percent at June 30, 2007.

STOCK REPURCHASE

During the third quarter of 2007, City National repurchased 858,400 of its outstanding shares at an average cost per share of $71.41. Through the first nine months of this year, it bought back 1,137,900 shares at an average cost of $71.62. On August 7, 2007, City National's board of directors authorized the company to repurchase 1 million additional shares of the company's stock, following completion of its previously approved stock buyback initiative. The company is currently authorized to repurchase an additional 919,800 shares.
