LATROBE, PA / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2023 / Commercial National Financial Corporation (OTCQX:CNAF) (Company), parent Company of Commercial Bank & Trust of PA, has reported results for the quarter ended December 31, 2022. The Company earned $1,325,000 (or $0.0.46 per average share outstanding) in the fourth quarter 2022 compared to $1,707,000 (or $0.60 per average share outstanding) in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company earned $3,907,000 (or $1.37 per average share outstanding) for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2022 and $4,685,000 (or $1.64 per average share outstanding) for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2021. Tier one risk-based, total risk-based, leverage and common equity tier one capital ratios at December 31, 2022 were 22.73%, 23.34%, 13.02% and 22.73% respectively. Tier one capital was $57,408,000 and total risk-based capital was $58,943,000 while book capital reflected a temporary after-tax accumulated other comprehensive loss stemming from net unrealized securities available-for-sale market value depreciation. As with many other insured depository institutions nation-wide, the Company's securities portfolio has been adversely impacted by rising interest rates.
Direct and beneficial ownership by executive officers and directors of the Company's outstanding shares totaled 489,660 shares, or 17.12% on December 31, 2022.
As disclosed each year in the Annual Report to Shareholders, on December 31, 2022, the Company employed 80 people in full-time and part-time positions. Thirty-two (32) employees are represented by the United Auto Workers, Local 1799. Of that bargaining unit total, twenty-nine (29) employees are full-time and there are three (3) part-time employees. The Company has had unionized employees since 1972. In October 2018, the agreement between the Company and the bargaining unit was negotiated and subsequently ratified by the bargaining unit with an effective date of February 16, 2019. The labor agreement will expire in February 2024. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Labor Relations Board both afford protection to the organized status of pre-existing collective bargaining units. The Company has been advised that bargaining unit status limits the Company's strategic options relative to those of non-unionized insured depository institutions. The Company continues to consider this as a factor in its strategic and capital management decisions.
The Company operates seven community banking facilities in Hempfield Township, Latrobe, Ligonier, Unity Township and West Newton, Pennsylvania and also maintains a commercial business development sales force throughout its entire market area. The Company operates an asset management and trust division of Commercial Bank & Trust of PA headquartered in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Commercial Bank & Trust of PA also serves its customer base from an Internet banking site (www.cnbthebankonline.com) and an automated TouchTone Teller banking system.
