DALLAS, April 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (Bank) today reported net income of $24.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
Total assets at March 31, 2012 were $34.2 billion, compared with $33.8 billion at December 31, 2011. The $0.4 billion increase in total assets during the first quarter was attributable primarily to a $1.1 billion increase in the Bank's short-term liquidity portfolio offset by a $0.6 billion decline in its advances.
Advances were $18.2 billion at March 31, 2012, compared with $18.8 billion at December 31, 2011. The Bank's lending activities remained subdued during the first quarter due largely to high deposit levels and weak demand for loans at member institutions.
Due to principal repayments on mortgage-backed securities (MBS), the Bank's long-term held-to-maturity securities portfolio declined from $6.4 billion at December 31, 2011 to $6.0 billion at March 31, 2012. The Bank did not acquire any MBS during the first quarter. The Bank's long-term available-for-sale securities portfolio, which is comprised entirely of U.S. agency and other highly rated debentures, increased from $4.9 billion at December 31, 2011 to $5.3 billion at March 31, 2012 due to purchases of additional debentures during the first quarter. The Bank's short-term liquidity portfolio (comprised primarily of non-interest bearing excess cash balances, overnight federal funds sold and overnight reverse repurchase agreements) increased from $3.3 billion at December 31, 2011 to $4.4 billion at March 31, 2012.
The Bank's operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 included credit-related other-than-temporary impairment charges totaling $0.2 million on two of its investments in non-agency (private-label) residential MBS (RMBS), each of which had previously been impaired. The unpaid principal balance of the Bank's 33 non-agency RMBS holdings, all of which are classified as held-to-maturity, totaled $301.3 million at March 31, 2012, compared with $316.7 million at December 31, 2011.
The Bank's retained earnings increased to $517.8 million at March 31, 2012, from $494.7 million at December 31, 2011. On March 30, 2012, a dividend of $1.2 million was paid to the Bank's shareholders. Accumulated other comprehensive loss attributable to the non-credit portion of other-than-temporary impairment losses on the Bank's non-agency RMBS holdings declined from $51.4 million at December 31, 2011 to $48.5 million at March 31, 2012. Accumulated other comprehensive income attributable to net unrealized gains on the Bank's available-for-sale securities portfolio totaled $8.3 million and $5.2 million as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.
Additional selected financial data as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 is set forth below. Further discussion and analysis regarding the Bank's first quarter results will be included in its Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2012 to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
