Available-for sale securities with a fair value of $7,176,000 were sold in March and a gain of $207,000 was recorded. This sale will settle and the proceeds will be received in April of 2012. No securities were sold with losses. Proceeds on the sale of $13,367,000 of available-for-sale securities resulted in gains of $231,000 for the first three months of 2011, with no losses.
Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) at least on a quarterly basis, and more frequently when economic or market conditions warrant such an evaluation. Investment securities classified as available-for-sale or held-to-maturity are evaluated for OTTI under ASC 320, Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities.
In determining OTTI, management considers many factors, including: (1) the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than cost, (2) the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, (3) whether the market decline was affected by macroeconomic conditions and (4) whether the entity has the intent to sell the debt security or more likely than not will be required to sell the debt security before its anticipated recovery. The assessment of whether an other-than temporary decline exists involves a high degree of subjectivity and judgment and is based on the information available to management at a point in time.
When OTTI occurs, the amount of the OTTI recognized in earnings depends on whether an entity intends to sell the security or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis less any current-period credit loss. If an entity intends to sell or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis less any current-period credit loss, the OTTI shall be recognized in earnings equal to the entire difference between the investment’s amortized cost basis and its fair value at the balance sheet date. Otherwise, the OTTI shall be separated into the amount representing the credit loss and the amount related to all other factors. The amount of the total OTTI related to the credit loss is determined based on the present value of cash flows expected to be collected and is recognized in earnings. The amount of the total OTTI related to other factors shall be recognized in other comprehensive income, net of applicable taxes. The previous amortized cost basis less the OTTI recognized in earnings shall become the new amortized cost basis of the investment.
As of March 31, 2012, the Bank’s security portfolio consisted of 224 securities, 29 of which were in an unrealized loss position of $488. There was no other-than-temporary-impairment of securities at March 31, 2012. Unrealized losses have not been recognized into income because the issuers’ bonds are of high credit quality (U.S. government agencies and government sponsored enterprises and “A” rated or better Kentucky municipalities), management does not have the intent to sell these securities and it is likely that it will not be required to sell the securities before their anticipated recovery.
At March 31, 2012, 100% of the mortgage-backed securities held by the Bank were issued by U.S. government sponsored entities and agencies, primarily Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, institutions which the government has affirmed its commitment to support. Because a decline in market value would be attributable to changes in interest rates and illiquidity, and not credit quality, and because the Company does not have the intent to sell these mortgage-backed securities and it is likely that it will not be required to sell the securities before their anticipated recovery, the Company does not consider these securities to be other than temporarily impaired at March 31, 2012.
At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, securities with a carrying value of $344,980 and $342,288 were pledged to secure public deposits and repurchase agreements.
Securities with unrealized losses at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, aggregated by investment category and length of time that individual securities have been in a continuous unrealized loss position, were as follows (in thousands):
