Riverview Bancorp Earns $16.6 Million in Fourth Fiscal Quarter and $19.4 Million for Fiscal Year 2014; Highlighted by Improved Credit Quality Metrics, OCC Agreement Termination and Recapture of Its Deferred Tax Asset Valuation Allowance

VANCOUVER, Wash., May 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Riverview Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:RVSB) ("Riverview" or the "Company") today reported that it earned $16.6 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in the fourth fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2014. This compared to net income of $801,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter and $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the fourth fiscal quarter a year ago. The fourth quarter results include a $15.1 million recapture of its deferred tax asset valuation allowance.

For all of fiscal year 2014, net income increased to $19.4 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to $2.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in fiscal year 2013.

"Fiscal year 2014 was a banner year for Riverview," stated Pat Sheaffer, Chairman and CEO. "We celebrated our seventh consecutive profitable quarter and continued to make meaningful progress in reducing nonperforming and classified assets. The combination of these two achievements led to the OCC terminating our formal agreement and the reversal of our deferred tax asset valuation allowance. As we look forward to the coming year, our future looks prosperous. Our core earnings have improved and we see opportunities for both loan and deposit growth in the coming year."

  • Fourth quarter net income was $16.6 million, or $0.74 per diluted share.
  • Excluding the recapture of the $15.1 million deferred tax allowance, fourth quarter net income was $1.5 million, compared to $801,000 in the preceding quarter and $1.6 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.

  • RAMCo's assets under management increased to $359.7 million with $2.6 million in fees during fiscal year 2014.
  • Capital levels increased with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.66% and Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.71%.

Balance Sheet Review

"Riverview's business outlook continues to improve as the economic recovery gains strength," said Ron Wysaske, President and COO. "Loan demand has been strengthening the past few quarters and the momentum we have built in our loan pipeline suggests a strong prospect for continued loan growth in fiscal year 2015. The asset quality improvements made by our team will also allow us to allocate more of our resources into business development and expanding lending relationships."

Net loans increased $15.3 million during the fourth quarter to $520.9 million at March 31, 2014 compared to $505.6 million at December 31, 2013. Loan originations totaled $41.5 million during the quarter and Riverview purchased an additional $14.4 million in a pool of automobile loans during the fourth quarter.

Core deposit growth has remained strong with checking account balances growing $28.9 million during the past year. Total deposits increased to $690.1 million at March 31, 2014 compared to $689.3 million three months earlier and $663.8 million a year earlier. As of March 31, 2014, interest checking accounts represent 15.1% and non-interest checking accounts represent 18.6% of the total deposit portfolio.

Shareholders' equity improved to $98.0 million at fiscal year-end compared to $78.4 million a year earlier. Tangible book value per share improved to $3.20 per share at March 31, 2014 compared to $2.33 per share a year ago.

Credit Quality

"Asset quality continues to remain a top priority for Riverview," said Dan Cox, Executive Vice President and Chief Credit Officer. "We have made substantial progress during fiscal year 2014 and we expect that our credit quality metrics will continue to improve during the next fiscal year. The improvements that we made reflect strongly on the hard work, dedication and teamwork demonstrated by our employees during the last several years."

Classified assets decreased $11.3 million during the quarter to $43.4 million at March 31, 2014 compared to $54.7 million at December 31, 2013. The classified asset to total capital ratio decreased to 45.1% at March 31, 2014 compared to 57.6% three months earlier.

Nonperforming assets totaled $21.8 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $25.3 million three months earlier and $36.8 million a year ago.

REO sales totaled $4.6 million during the quarter with $220,000 in write-downs and $553,000 in additions. Riverview also sold an additional $551,000 in properties since March 31st and has an additional $1.2 million in properties currently under contract, which are expected to close during the first fiscal quarter of 2015 with minimal to no projected losses on these sales.

Riverview recorded a $1.2 million recapture of loan losses during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to no provision in the preceding quarter and a $3.6 million recapture of loan losses in the fourth quarter a year ago. In fiscal year 2014, Riverview recorded a $3.7 million recapture of loan losses compared to a $900,000 provision for loan losses in fiscal year 2013. The decrease in required loan loss provision reflects the improvement in credit quality and the increase in loan recoveries during the past fiscal year.

Net loan charge-offs totaled $297,000 in the fourth quarter compared to a net recovery of $352,000 in the preceding quarter and net charge-offs of $390,000 in the fourth quarter a year ago. In fiscal year 2014, Riverview had net recoveries totaling $608,000 compared to net charge-offs of $5.2 million in fiscal year 2013.

The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2014 totaled $12.6 million, representing 2.35% of total loans and 89.25% of nonperforming loans.

Income Statement

Riverview's fourth quarter net interest income was $6.0 million, which was the same as in the preceding quarter and decreased slightly from $6.2 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. For fiscal year 2014, net interest income was $24.2 million compared to $29.4 million in fiscal year 2013.

"Riverview's net interest margin improved four basis points compared to the preceding quarter, primarily due to the deployment of cash into higher yielding investment securities during the quarter as well as the increase in our loan portfolio," said Kevin Lycklama, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "During the last fiscal year, we deployed over $95 million of cash into our investment portfolio in order to offset some of the pressure from the continued low interest rate environment."

Riverview's net interest margin was 3.33% in the fiscal fourth quarter compared to 3.29% for the preceding quarter and 3.64% in the fiscal fourth quarter a year ago. For the fiscal year, Riverview's net interest margin was 3.37% compared to 4.06% in fiscal year 2013. The decrease in the net interest margin compared to prior year was largely due to the decline in loan yields and the higher level of lower yielding interest-bearing cash balances held by the Company. Loan yields have contracted as a result of the lower yields on new loan originations and the repricing of existing loans.

Non-interest income was $1.9 million in the fourth quarter compared to $2.4 million in the preceding quarter and $2.0 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. Asset management fees increased to $694,000 during the quarter compared to $547,000 in the same quarter a year ago as a result of an increase in assets under management. Non-interest income was also impacted by the slowdown in mortgage related volumes. This slowdown was primarily driven by lower refinance and purchase activity due to an increase in interest rates and the seasonal cyclicality of the housing market.

Non-interest expense was $7.5 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $7.6 million in the preceding quarter and $10.2 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. The primary driver for the decrease from prior year was a reduction in REO expenses. REO expenses decreased to $363,000 in the fourth quarter compared to $2.9 million in the same quarter a year ago. For the full year, non-interest expense totaled $32.0 million compared to $34.8 million in fiscal 2013.

Income Taxes

As a result of the improvement in Riverview's financial condition, specifically an improvement in asset quality and core earnings, and its forecast for future earnings, the Company reversed the $15.1 million valuation allowance on its deferred tax asset during the fourth quarter. The fourth fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2014 marked Riverview's seventh consecutive profitable quarter. Classified assets have improved during the past eight consecutive quarters and Riverview has been in a net loan recovery position during the past fiscal year.

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 16.66%, Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.71% and tangible common equity to tangible assets of 9.02% at March 31, 2014.

The Bank had available total and contingent liquidity of more than $500 million, representing 62% of total assets as of March 31, 2014. Included in the Bank's total liquidity was more than $200 million of cash and short-term investments.

Regulatory

The Company recently announced that the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has lifted the formal agreement ("Agreement") with Riverview Community Bank. This action immediately ended the regulatory restrictions that were contained in the Agreement and no further reporting under the Agreement is necessary.

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).
