Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin Inc. Announces Quarter and Year Results

MADISON, Wis., March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin Inc. (the "Company") today announced its financial results for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2013. The Board of Directors of the Company approved a change in its fiscal year to a calendar year end. As a result, we are reporting on a transitional nine month period for the period ended December 31, 2013.

Net income was $3.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to a net loss of $11.6 million for the same period a year ago. For the nine months ended December 31, 2013, net income was $111.6 million, compared to a net loss of $20.2 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2012. The Company had a net loss of $34.2 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013.

On September 27, 2013, the Company announced the completion of a $175 million recapitalization. The Company received gross proceeds of $175 million related to the issuance of new common equity and settled all of its obligations with respect to the short term credit agreement and the preferred stock. The transaction resulted in income from extinguishment of debt of $134.5 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2013 which contributed to net income for the transitional nine month period.

"We are excited about the many opportunities presented by the recapitalization, and we are pleased to have ended the year on a positive note," stated Chris Bauer, President & CEO for AnchorBank. "We continue to make steady progress in improving our financial health, profitability and growth and we have implemented new strategies to develop a relationship-focused, service-driven franchise with expanded commercial lending, improved asset quality, increased core deposits and a more efficient operating model, which we believe positions us well for success."

Highlights for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, include:

  • The total risk-based capital ratio for the Bank was 17.07% as of December 31, 2013, compared to 9.02% at March 31, 2013. Tier 1 capital was 9.60% as of December 31, 2013, compared to 4.53% at March 31, 2013. As a result of the recapitalization, the Bank's total risk based capital ratio exceeds the 12% level required under the terms of the Cease and Desist Order for the second consecutive quarter.
  • Total non-performing loans decreased $50.3 million, or 42.3% to $68.5 million at December 31, 2013 from $118.8 million at March 31, 2013;
  • Total non-performing assets (total non-performing loans and other real estate owned) decreased $71.1 million, or 35.0 %, to $132.0 million at December 31, 2013 from $203.1 million at March 31, 2013; as the Bank continues to reduce problem asset levels. Non-performing assets have steadily declined for more than three years from over $455.0 million at March 31, 2010 to the current balance, a 71.0% decrease as a result of continued efforts by management to reduce such problem assets.
  • The provision for loan losses was zero and $275,000 for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2013, respectively. This was a decrease when compared to $4.8 million and $7.1 million for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2012, respectively; and
  • Loan delinquencies (loans past due 30 days or more) decreased $51.4 million or 44.1%, to $65.2 million at December 31, 2013 from $116.6 million at March 31, 2013.

"We continue to look forward to 2014 and the opportunities for AnchorBank, its customers, its employees, and the communities we serve," Bauer said. "We remain grateful for the opportunity to provide banking services to our Wisconsin customers and clients, as we have done for 95 years."
