HONOLULU, Oct. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Territorial Bancorp Inc. (Nasdaq:TBNK) (the "Company"), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $3.5 million or $0.38 per basic and $0.37 per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2014, compared to $3.8 million or $0.40 per basic and $0.39 per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The decline in net income for the third quarter of 2014 was primarily due to decreases in gains on sales of investment securities and gains on sale of loans, and an increase in noninterest expense. These were partially offset by an increase in interest income on loans and investment securities.
The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved an increase in its quarterly cash dividend from $0.15 to $0.16 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on November 26, 2014 to stockholders of record as of November 13, 2014.
Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the quarter, loans and deposits continued to grow. Our net interest margin has improved while credit quality remains strong. Our balance sheet and capital ratios remain solid."
Net interest income increased to $13.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 from $12.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. Total interest and dividend income was $15.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $14.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The $900,000 growth in interest and dividend income was primarily due to a $753,000 increase in interest earned on loans and a $120,000 increase in interest earned on investment securities. The increase in interest income on loans and on investment securities is due to growth in the loan and investment securities portfolios.
Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses
Total interest expense increased to $1.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $1.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. During the quarter, interest expense on deposits rose by $107,000 compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2013 due to an increase in deposits. During the quarter ended September 30, 2014, there was a $23,000 provision for loan losses compared to a $45,000 provision for the three months ended September 30, 2013.
Noninterest income was $1.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $2.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The reduction in noninterest income was primarily due to a $530,000 decrease in gains on sale of investment securities and a $247,000 decrease in gains on sale of loans. The decrease in gains on sale of investment securities and on the gains on sale of loans is due to a reduction in the amount of securities and loans sold.
Noninterest expense totaled $9.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $8.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The rise in noninterest expense was primarily due to increases in expenses related to equipment, occupancy, salaries and employee benefits and other general and administrative expenses.
Assets and Equity
Total assets increased to $1.656 billion at September 30, 2014 from $1.617 billion at December 31, 2013. Loans receivable grew to $925.5 million at September 30, 2014 from $856.5 million at December 31, 2013 as residential mortgage loan originations exceeded loan repayments and sales. The growth in loans receivable was funded primarily by a $38.5 million increase in deposits, a $10.6 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents and $24.4 million received from repayments and sales of mortgage-backed securities. Deposits increased to $1.327 billion at September 30, 2014 from $1.289 billion at December 31, 2013. Total stockholders' equity increased to $217.1 million at September 30, 2014 from $212.1 million at December 31, 2013 primarily as a result of the Company's current year's earnings of $10.6 million, which was offset by $4.2 million of stockholder dividends and $4.4 million of share repurchases.
Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $884,000 (4 loans) at September 30, 2014, compared to $1.6 million (5 loans) at December 31, 2013. Non-performing assets totaled $5.0 million at September 30, 2014 compared to $6.0 million at December 31, 2013. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets declined to 0.30% at September 30, 2014 from 0.37% at December 31, 2013 and continues to remain one of the lowest in the country. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $1.5 million and represented 0.17% of total loans.
