Riverview Bancorp Earns $801,000 in Third Fiscal Quarter, Posting Its Sixth Consecutive Quarter of Profitability

VANCOUVER, Wash., Jan. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Riverview Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:RVSB) ("Riverview" or the "Company") today reported net income of $801,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013, compared to $341,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter and $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the third fiscal quarter a year ago. In the first nine months of fiscal year 2014, net income increased 168% to $2.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the first nine months of fiscal year 2013.

"Our third quarter profits continue to demonstrate the strength of our franchise and the success of our turnaround plan," stated Pat Sheaffer, Chairman and CEO. "The steady economic recovery in Southwest Washington contributed to strong improvements in credit quality, with net recoveries totaling $352,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. We have continued to make meaningful progress in reducing our nonperforming and classified assets and we are excited to be celebrating our sixth consecutive profitable quarter. As the last remaining community bank headquartered in Southwest Washington, we look forward to the future with confidence as we continue to create value for our shareholders by developing strong relationships with our customers, communities and employees."

Third Quarter Highlights (at or for the period ended December 31, 2013)

  • Net income was $801,000, or $0.04 per diluted share.
  • Classified assets decreased $3.9 million during the quarter to $54.7 million (6.6% decline).
  • Net loan recoveries for the third quarter totaled $352,000 compared to net charge-offs of $507,000 in the third quarter a year ago.
  • Nonperforming asset balances decreased during the quarter $4.3 million, or 14.6%. During the last 12 months, NPAs have declined by $20.0 million, or 44.2%.
  • Total deposits increased $16.5 million to $689.3 million at December 31, 2013 compared to prior quarter.
  • Capital levels increased with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.76% and Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.42%.

Balance Sheet Review

"The current economic outlook in Southwest Washington and Portland is improving, and we are seeing encouraging signs in our market," Sheaffer noted. "Our general business outlook continues to get better as the economic recovery gains strength. Loan demand is strengthening and our loan pipeline has continued to grow over the last several quarters."

Riverview added several new lenders to its two existing lending teams during the past quarter. "The addition of these new lenders allows us to put additional resources in the communities we serve and get in front of more potential customers," said Sheaffer. "We have built a solid foundation to continue to grow our loan portfolio in the coming year. Our lending teams continue to do a good job of serving our existing clients and bringing new relationships to the bank."

During the third quarter loan originations increased 52% compared to the preceding quarter. However, several large loan payoffs during the quarter, as well as reductions in classified and nonperforming loan balances led to a modest decline in net loans compared to the prior quarter end.

Loan originations totaled $41.0 million during the quarter compared to $27.5 million in preceding quarter. Net loans decreased $3.8 million during the quarter to $505.6 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $509.4 million at September 30, 2013. In addition, Riverview purchased $7.6 million in a pool of automobile loans during the quarter.

Total deposits increased to $689.3 million at December 31, 2013, compared to $672.8 million three months earlier and $682.8 million a year earlier.

"Our increase in deposits came from customers in our retail branch network, primarily checking accounts which increased $11.8 million in total or 5.6%," noted Sheaffer. "Competition from the regional and national banks as well as smaller local institutions in our market place remains strong. We continue to work aggressively to cultivate existing bank relationships while also marketing to new customers."

As of December 31, 2013, interest checking accounts represent 14.4% and non-interest checking represent 17.9% of the total deposit portfolio. Riverview had no brokered CDs at December 31, 2013.

Shareholders' equity improved to $81.3 million at quarter-end, compared to $81.0 million three months earlier and $76.8 million a year earlier. Tangible book value per share improved to $2.46 per share at December 31, 2013, compared to $2.45 per share at September 30, 2013, and $2.26 per share a year ago.

Credit Quality

Classified assets decreased $3.9 million during the quarter to $54.7 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $58.6 million at September 30, 2013 and $85.7 million at December 31, 2012. The classified asset to total capital ratio decreased to 57.6% at December 31, 2013.

"Our loan portfolio continues to perform well, with asset quality improving for the seventh consecutive quarter," said Ron Wysaske, President and COO. "Total nonperforming loans are down 46% from a year ago. Asset quality remains a top priority for Riverview and we expect these totals will continue to improve during this coming year."

Nonperforming loans decreased $2.8 million during the third quarter to $13.4 million, or 2.57% of total loans, at December 31, 2013, compared to $16.2 million, or 3.09% of total loans three months earlier. REO sales totaled $3.4 million with write-downs of $167,000 and additions of $2.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014. These sales included the sale of a $3.3 million REO property in Redmond, Oregon.

Riverview recorded no provision for loan losses during the third quarter, the same as in the preceding quarter. In the first nine months of fiscal year 2014, Riverview recorded a $2.5 million recapture of loan losses compared to a $4.5 million provision for loan losses in the first nine months of fiscal year 2013. The decrease in required loan loss provision is a result of the continued improvement in asset quality and the lower level of classified loans. The allowance for loan losses totaled $14.0 million at December 31, 2013, representing 2.70% of total loans and 105.02% of nonperforming loans.

Riverview recorded a net recovery of $352,000 in the third quarter compared to net loan charge-offs of $1,000 in the preceding quarter. In the first nine months of fiscal 2014, Riverview had net recoveries totaling $905,000 compared to net charge-offs of $4.8 million in the first nine months of fiscal year 2013.

Income Statement

Riverview's third quarter net interest income was $6.0 million compared to $6.1 million in the preceding quarter and $7.4 million in the third quarter a year ago. In the first nine months of fiscal 2014, the net interest income was $18.3 million compared to $23.2 million in the same period a year earlier.

"The increase in cash balances compared to a year ago continues to put pressure on our net interest margin, which declined modestly compared to three months earlier," noted Wysaske. "Additionally, our margin has continued to contract due to the repricing of loans in the portfolio due to the continued low interest rates. We have deployed over $45 million of cash into our investment portfolio over the last nine months in order to help offset some of the impact of this low interest rate environment. We expect that our margin will remain under pressure until interest rates increase."

Riverview's net interest margin was 3.29% in the fiscal third quarter compared to 3.37% for the preceding quarter and 4.03% in the fiscal third quarter a year ago. In the first nine months of the fiscal year Riverview's net interest margin was 3.39% compared to 4.19% in the same period a year earlier.

Non-interest income increased to $2.4 million in the third quarter compared to $1.9 million in the preceding quarter and $2.1 million in the third quarter a year ago. Asset management fees increased to $605,000 during the quarter compared to $517,000 in the same quarter a year ago as a result of an increase in assets under management at Riverview's asset management company. In the first nine months of fiscal 2014, non-interest income was $6.5 million compared to $6.8 million in the same period a year earlier.

Non-interest expense was $7.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014, unchanged from the preceding quarter. Non-interest expense was $8.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The primary driver in decrease from prior year was a reduction in REO expenses. REO expenses decreased to $298,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $1.1 million in the same quarter a year ago. Year-to-date non-interest expense was $24.5 million, which was unchanged from the first nine months of fiscal 2013.

Capital and Liquidity

Riverview continues to maintain capital levels in excess of the regulatory requirements to be categorized as "well capitalized" with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.76%, Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.42% and tangible common equity to tangible assets of 7.10% at December 31, 2013.

As of December 31, 2013, the Bank had available total and contingent liquidity of more than $500 million, representing 62% of total assets. Included in the Bank's total liquidity was more than $175 million of cash and short-term investments.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Riverview believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with information useful in understanding the company's financial performance; however, readers of this report are urged to review these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP results as reported.

Financial measures that exclude intangible assets are non-GAAP measures. To provide investors with a broader understanding of capital adequacy, Riverview provides non-GAAP financial measures for tangible common equity, along with the GAAP measure. Tangible common equity is calculated as shareholders' equity less goodwill and other intangible assets. In addition, tangible assets are total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets.

The following table provides a reconciliation of ending shareholders' equity (GAAP) to ending tangible shareholders' equity (non-GAAP), and ending assets (GAAP) to ending tangible assets (non-GAAP).
