HomeTrust Bancshares, Inc. logo

ASHEVILLE, N.C., April 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HomeTrust Bancshares, Inc. (Nasdaq:HTBI) (Company), the holding company of HomeTrust Bank, today announced preliminary net income of $2.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, unchanged from the same period a year ago. Net income totaled $8.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 compared to net income of $6.0 million for the same period in 2013. The increase in net income for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 was a result of a $4.8 million recovery from the allowance for loan losses. On a basic and diluted per share basis, the Company earned $0.14 per share and $0.46 per share for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2014; while it earned $0.13 and $0.30 per share for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013, respectively.

In announcing these results, Chairman, President and CEO, Dana Stonestreet commented, "Our earnings continue to benefit from a lower provision for loan losses due to a continued positive trend in our asset quality as net loan chargeoffs and classified assets continue to decline. Net loan charge-offs as a percent of average loans decreased to 0.02% for the period compared to 0.60% during the same period last year. Additionally, classified assets and nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets decreased as well. Non-interest expense for the period reflects an increase in merger-related expenses associated with the pending acquisitions of both Jefferson Bancshares and Bank of Commerce. Both acquisitions are still on track to be completed in the second and third calendar quarters, respectively."

Income Statement Review

Net interest income was $13.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $13.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Net interest income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 increased $108,000, or 0.8%, compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year as declines in interest income on loans of $651,000 were offset by a $295,000 increase in income from securities available for sale due to an increase in the average balance and a decrease in deposit and other borrowing costs of $399,000 due to a reduction in market rates of interest. Net interest margin (on a fully taxable-equivalent basis) for the three months ended March 31, 2014 decreased three basis points over the same period last fiscal year to 3.75%.

Net interest income was $40.3 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $40.1 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2013. Net interest income increased $192,000, or 0.5%, compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year as declines in interest income on loans of $2.4 million were offset by an $839,000 increase in income from securities available for sale due to an increase in the average balance and a decrease in deposit and other borrowing costs of $1.6 million due to a reduction in market rates of interest. Net interest margin (on a fully taxable-equivalent basis) for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 decreased 4 basis points from the same period last fiscal year to 3.79%.

Non-interest income was $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $2.6 million for the same three month period in the prior fiscal year. This decrease was primarily due to a $607,000 reduction in mortgage banking income and fees resulting from a decrease in mortgage loan originations due to rising interest rates, which has slowed refinancing activity compared to the same quarter in the prior fiscal year.

Non-interest income was $6.5 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $7.8 million for the same nine month period in the prior fiscal year. Mortgage banking income and fees decreased $1.5 million or 38.4% as proceeds from sales of loans held for sale decreased to $69.9 million during the nine month period compared to $183.4 million for the same period for fiscal 2013. Mortgage loan origination volume has decreased due to rising interest rates, which has slowed refinancing activity compared to the same nine month period in the prior fiscal year.

Non-interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2014 increased $1.3 million, or 11.1%, to $13.4 million compared to $12.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. This increase was primarily related to a $767,000, or 11.4%, increase in salaries and employee benefits as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. Additionally, non-interest expense increased as a result of $449,000 in merger-related expenses associated with the pending acquisitions of both Jefferson Bancshares, Inc. and Bank of Commerce as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Non-interest expense for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 decreased $214,000, or 0.6%, to $38.6 million compared to $38.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2013. This decrease was primarily related to $3.1 million in prepayment penalties on Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") borrowings repaid during the prior fiscal year period and was partially offset by a $2.8 million, or 14.5%, increase in salaries and employee benefits as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. Salaries and employee benefits increased during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2014 as a result of awards made under the Company's 2013 Omnibus Incentive Plan and the BankGreenville acquisition, as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Balance Sheet Review

Total assets increased $49.0 million, or 3.1%, to $1.63 billion at March 31, 2014 from $1.58 billion at June 30, 2013. This increase was largely due to the July 31, 2013 BankGreenville acquisition, which increased total assets by $101.1 million. Securities available for sale increased $65.1 million, or 263.2%, to $89.9 million at March 31, 2014 from $24.8 million at June 30, 2013 as a result of the purchase of $38.0 million in investment securities (net of sales and maturities) coupled with $34.3 million in investment securities acquired from BankGreenville. Certificates of deposit in other banks increased $23.1 million, or 16.9%, to $159.7 million at March 31, 2014 from $136.6 million at June 30, 2013 as a result of additional certificates of deposit being purchased during the period. In addition, net loans receivable increased $8.7 million, or 0.8%, to $1.14 billion at March 31, 2014 from $1.13 billion at June 30, 2013 primarily as a result of a $4.8 million recovery in the provision for loan losses since June 30, 2013.

Total deposits increased $57.2 million, or 4.9%, from $1.15 billion at June 30, 2013 to $1.21 billion at March 31, 2014. This increase was primarily due to $89.1 million of deposits acquired from BankGreenville. Other borrowings increased from none at June 30, 2013 to $2.2 million at March 31, 2014 as a result of obligations assumed in the BankGreenville acquisition.

Stockholders' equity at March 31, 2014 decreased to $358.4 million from $367.5 million at June 30, 2013. This decrease was primarily a result of the repurchase of 1,257,280 shares at a total cost of $20.5 million during the nine months ended March 31, 2014, partially offset by an $8.8 million increase in retained earnings as a result of the net income during the period. As of March 31, 2014, the Company had repurchased on the open market 216,035 shares of the 989,183 authorized in the February 2014 stock repurchase plan at an average cost of $15.78 per share. As of March 31, 2014, HomeTrust Bank was considered "well capitalized" in accordance with its regulatory capital guidelines and exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with Tier 1 Leverage, Tier 1 Risk-Based, and Total Risk-Based capital ratios of 14.54%, 21.09%, and 22.35%, respectively. As of March 31, 2013, these ratios were 14.87%, 21.38%, and 22.66%, respectively.

Asset Quality

The allowance for loan losses was $25.3 million, or 2.16% of total loans, at March 31, 2014 compared to $32.1 million, or 2.75% of total loans, at June 30, 2013.

The provision/(recovery) for loan losses was $(1.8 million) for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $500,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The large decrease in the provision was due to the combination of significantly lower loan charge-offs and lower average loan balances compared to the same period during the prior fiscal year. Net loan charge-offs decreased to $56,000 during the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $1.8 million for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. Net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans also decreased significantly to 0.02% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 from 0.60% for the same period last fiscal year. Average loans receivable decreased $25.3 million, or 2.1%, to $1.17 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 from $1.20 billion for the same quarter of fiscal 2013.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2014, the provision/(recovery) for loan losses was $(4.8 million) compared to $2.3 million for the same period in 2013. The large decrease in the provision was due to the combination of significantly lower loan charge-offs and lower average loan balances compared to the same period during the prior fiscal year. Net loan charge-offs decreased to $2.0 million during the nine months ending March 31, 2014 compared to $4.4 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year. Net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans also decreased dramatically to 0.22% for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 from 0.49% for the same period last fiscal year. Average loans receivable decreased $29.7 million, or 2.4%, to $1.19 billion for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 from $1.22 billion for the same period last year.

Nonperforming assets decreased to $63.6 million, or 3.90% of total assets, at March 31, 2014, compared to $80.3 million, or 5.07% of total assets, at June 30, 2013 and $85.1 million, or 5.33% at March 31, 2013. The decrease in nonperforming assets during the first nine months of fiscal 2014 was primarily driven by a reduction in nonaccruing loans and real estate owned (REO). Nonperforming assets included $54.4 million in nonaccruing loans and $9.2 million in REO at March 31, 2014, compared to $68.6 million and $11.7 million, respectively, at June 30, 2013 and $71.7 million and $13.4 million at March 31, 2013, respectively. At March 31, 2014, $24.4 million, or 44.8%, of nonaccruing loans were current on their loan payments.

The ratio of classified assets to total assets decreased to 5.93% at March 31, 2014 from 7.43% at June 30, 2013 and from 7.86% at March 31, 2013. Classified assets decreased to $96.7 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $117.6 million and $125.5 million at June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively.

(1) Derived from audited financial statements.

(2) Net of allowances for loan losses, loans in process and deferred loan fees.

(3) Non-performing assets include nonaccruing loans, consisting of certain restructured loans, and real estate owned. There were no accruing loans more than 90 days past due at the dates indicated. At March 31, 2014, there were $21.1 million of restructured loans included in nonaccruing loans and $24.4 million, or 44.8%, of nonaccruing loans were current on their loan payments.

(4) REO-related expenses include loss on sale and impairment of REO and all other REO-related expenses.

(5) Ratios are annualized where appropriate.

(6) The weighted average rate for municipal leases is adjusted for a 34% federal tax rate since the interest from these leases is tax exempt.

(7) Net interest income divided by average interest earning assets.

(8) As presented in this earnings release, the efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total non-interest expense, net of FHLB advance prepayment penalties, REO-related expenses and merger-related expenses, by the sum of net interest income, total non-interest income and the tax equivalent adjustment, net of realized gain/loss on securities. The efficiency ratio, tangible book value, and tangible book value per share are non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles utilized in the United States) financial measures. The Company believes the efficiency ratio as presented is useful for both investors and management to understand the effects of certain non-interest items and provides an alternative view of the Company's performance over time and in comparison to the Company's competitors. The Company believes that tangible book value and tangible book value per share are useful for both investors and management as these are measures commonly used by financial institutions, regulators and investors to measure the capital adequacy of financial institutions. The Company believes these measures facilitate comparison of the quality and composition of the Company's capital over time and in comparison to its competitors. These non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied and are not audited. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for total stockholders' equity or operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures (including the efficiency ratio, tangible book value and tangible book value per share), is included in tabular form below:

Set forth below is a reconciliation to GAAP of the non-GAAP efficiency ratio shown in the table above:
