HF Financial Corp. Reports 85% Increase in Fiscal First Quarter 2015 Earnings

First Quarter Earnings Total $1.8 Million, or $0.26 per Share;
Loan Growth Contributes to Margin Expansion;
Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend of $0.1125 per Share

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HF Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:HFFC) today reported fiscal first quarter earnings increased 85.1% to $1.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to $979,000, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. For the previous quarter ended June 30, 2014, earnings were $1.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share. Net loans increased by $5.4 million, or 0.7%, from the previous quarter. Nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets declined to 1.21% at September 30, 2014, from 1.37% one quarter earlier.

"Our 2015 fiscal first quarter reflects continued improvement in our core earnings. We have made efforts to improve our net interest margin, expand our lending, and improve asset quality while reducing the costs to deliver our services. During the first quarter, we closed the Parker office and consolidated the deposit and lending relationships in nearby offices. Meanwhile, loan growth has exceeded 7% over the past year. These initiatives should continue to enhance our shareholder returns," said Stephen Bianchi, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Fiscal 2015 First Quarter Financial Highlights: (at or for the periods ended September 30, 2014, compared to June 30, 2014 and/or September 30, 2013.)

  • Earnings per diluted share for the fiscal first quarter 2015 were $0.26 compared to $0.21 the previous quarter and $0.14 the previous year.
  • Total loans increased to $817.3 million at September 30, 2014, from $811.9 million at June 30, 2014, and $760.4 million one year earlier, or a 7.5% increase year over year.
  • The net interest margin expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis ("NIM, TE") increased to 2.84% for the fiscal first quarter 2015 compared to 2.80% for the previous quarter and 2.36% one year earlier.
  • Nonperforming assets continued to decline and totaled $15.2 million at September 30, 2014, or 1.21% of total assets compared to $17.5 million at June 30, 2014, or 1.37% of total assets. One year earlier, nonperforming assets totaled $21.5 million, or 1.72% of total assets.
  • For the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2014, mortgage banking revenue (gains on sale of loans and loan servicing income, net) totaled $917,000 compared to $699,000 the previous quarter and $1.4 million one year earlier.
  • The Bank closed an office in Parker, South Dakota during the fiscal first quarter resulting in nonrecurring losses on the disposal of fixed assets of $163,000. Lease termination expense totaled $25,000. Annual anticipated cost savings of approximately $200,000 are related to this efficiency action.
  • Capital levels at September 30, 2014, continued to remain well above the regulatory "well-capitalized" minimum levels:
    • Total risk-based capital to risk-weighted assets was 14.50% versus 14.54% at June 30, 2014.
    • Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets was 13.36% versus 13.38% at June 30, 2014.
    • Tier 1 capital to total adjusted assets was 9.70% versus 9.49% at June 30, 2014.
  • The most recent dividend of $0.1125 per share represents the twenty-sixth consecutive quarter at this level and provides a 3.35% current yield at recent market prices.
  • Tangible book value was $13.86 per share at September 30, 2014, compared to $12.92 per share one year earlier. This increase in tangible book value combined with a total dividend of $0.45 results in an intrinsic return of 10.76% for the past twelve month period.

Balance Sheet and Asset Quality Review

HF Financial's total asset base declined slightly from the previous quarter to $1.26 billion from $1.27 billion. One year earlier, total assets were $1.25 billion. Though the asset base has reflected minimal growth, HF Financial has continued to grow its loan portfolio and funded new loans in part with proceeds from short-term, liquid investments. In the first fiscal quarter of 2015, total loans increased to $817.3 million from $811.9 million at the end of the previous quarter. Total loans one year earlier were $760.4 million. The increase in the loan balance reflected an increased balance of commercial real estate and agricultural loans. Commercial real estate loans continued to represent the largest portion of the loan portfolio, which totaled 51.8% of the loan portfolio at September 30, 2014, followed by agricultural loans totaling 24.2%.

"Over the past two years, we have expanded our lending team and reached into new markets. Additionally, we have refocused our lending efforts at the branch locations to better penetrate the communities we serve. We are now seeing tangible results of our initiatives," stated Bianchi.

Total deposits increased to $954.3 million at September 30, 2014 from $944.3 million one year earlier and decreased from $999.2 million at the end of the fiscal fourth quarter. The decline from the prior quarter reflects seasonal outflow of public funds. Non-certificate accounts represented 73.5% of total deposits while certificates of deposit represented 26.5% of total deposits at September 30, 2014.

Borrowings increased during the first fiscal quarter of fiscal 2015 to $142.9 million compared to $120.6 million in the previous quarter, due to an increase in the utilization of overnight federal funds purchased.

Nonperforming assets ("NPAs"), which included $13.5 million of troubled debt restructurings that are in-compliance with their restructured terms and payments due, decreased to $15.2 million at September 30, 2014, from $17.5 million the preceding quarter and $21.5 million one year earlier. At September 30, 2014, NPAs represented 1.21% of total assets and included only $124,000 in foreclosed assets.

The allowance for loan and lease losses at September 30, 2014, totaled $10.4 million and represented 1.27% of total loans and leases. Total allowance relative to total nonperforming loans was 68.7% at September 30, 2014, compared to 60.7% the previous quarter and 50.5% one year earlier.

Tangible common stockholders' equity increased to 7.81% of tangible assets at September 30, 2014, compared to 7.62% at June 30, 2014. Tangible book value per common share was $13.86 at September 30, 2014, up from $13.72 per share at the end of the previous quarter and $12.92 one year earlier.

Capital ratios continued to remain well above regulatory requirements with Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets of 13.36% at September 30, 2014, while the ratio of Tier 1 capital to total adjusted assets was 9.70%. These regulatory ratios were higher than the required minimum levels of 6.00% and 5.00%, respectively.

Review of Operations

For the first fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2014, HF Financial's earnings reflected an improved net interest margin, a small provision benefit due in part to improved asset quality, offset partially by expenses associated with a branch closure. Net interest income increased to $8.3 million for the first fiscal quarter of 2015 compared to $8.2 million the previous quarter and $6.8 million one year earlier. The NIM, TE expanded to 2.84% for the fiscal first quarter compared to 2.80% the previous quarter and 2.36% one year earlier. "We remain committed to improving our net interest margin and are realizing the results of an improved mix of earning assets. We continue to examine yields in our investment portfolio and the costs of our funding sources for opportunities to improve our net interest margin while also maintaining interest rate risk at acceptable levels," stated Brent Olthoff, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer.

Provision for loan losses reflected a benefit of $22,000 for the first fiscal quarter of 2015, compared to provisions of $328,000 and $276,000 for the previous quarter and one year earlier, respectively. "Lower charge-offs and improved asset quality decreased the need to add to our reserve balances," continued Olthoff.

Noninterest income totaled $3.3 million for the fiscal first quarter of 2015 compared to $3.2 million in the previous quarter and $4.2 million one year earlier. Mortgage activity produced $917,000 in servicing and gains on loan sales in the first fiscal quarter of 2015 compared to $699,000 in the previous quarter and $1.4 million the previous year. Fees on deposits totaled $1.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 versus $1.5 million the previous quarter and $1.7 million the first quarter in fiscal 2014. Offsetting noninterest income was a loss on disposal of fixed assets associated with a branch closure of $163,000.

Noninterest expense was similar to the previous quarter and lower than one year earlier. Noninterest expenses totaled $9.0 million for the first fiscal quarter of 2015 and the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $9.3 million one year earlier. The primary difference is lower compensation expenses and lower expenses related to foreclosed real estate.

These financial results are preliminary until the Form 10-Q is filed in November 2014.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

The board of directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.1125 per common share for the first fiscal quarter 2015. The dividend is payable November 14, 2014 to stockholders of record November 7, 2014.

(1) Includes loan fees and interest on accruing loans and leases past due 90 days or more.
(2) Includes federal funds sold and interest earning reserve balances at the Federal Reserve Bank.
(3) Yields do not reflect the tax-exempt nature of loans, equipment leases and municipal securities.
(4) Percentages for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and June 30, 2014 have been annualized.
(5) Net interest income divided by average interest-earning assets.
(6) Net interest margin expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis ("Net Interest Margin, TE") is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the following Non-GAAP Disclosure Reconciliation of Net Interest Income (GAAP) to Net Interest Margin, TE (Non-GAAP). The tax-equivalent adjustment to net interest income recognizes the income tax savings when comparing taxable and tax-exempt assets and adjusting for federal and state exemption of interest income and certain other permanent income tax differences. We believe that it is a standard practice in the banking industry to present net interest margin expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis, and accordingly believe the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure may be useful for peer comparison purposes. As a non-GAAP financial measure, Net Interest Margin, TE should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. As other companies may use different calculations for Net Interest Margin, TE, this presentation may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
