Kansas City CUs report healthy third quarter
KANSAS CITY (11/27/07)--Despite declining revenues and an uptick in delinquent loans, Kansas City area credit unions reported a healthy third quarter. The National Credit Union Administration released financial reports that reveal the financial health of the Kansas City area’s 60 credit unions (KanasasCity.com Nov. 24). Collectively, the area credit unions earned 23% less in July August and September than they did in the previous three months. During the third quarter, delinquent loans for the credit unions went up 10.6%, but as a percentage of all loans remained relatively low at 1.03%. A Nov. 1 merger of CommunityAmerica CU with Midwest United CU resulted in CommunityAmerica garnering more than half the assets and almost 60% of the loans of all area credit unions. The $1.518 billion asset, Lenexa, Kan.-based CommunityAmerica is growing. It has three new branches and plans to build more next year. On the other end of the asset spectrum, KC Terminal Employees/Guadalupe Center FCU--despite being hit by several delinquent loans--still has a net worth equal to almost 29% of its assets, higher than any other credit union in the area. However, it is one of four area credit unions with less than $1 million in assets.
