Carver Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 Results

NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carver Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:CARV), the holding company for Carver Federal Savings Bank ("Carver" or the "Bank"), today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter of 2015 ended December 31, 2014.

The Company reported net income of $111 thousand, or basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.03, for the third quarter of its fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, compared to a net loss of $823 thousand1, or basic and diluted loss per share of $0.221, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. For the nine months ended December 31, 2014, the Company reported net income of $491 thousand, or basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.13, compared to a net loss of $69 thousand1, or basic and diluted loss per share of $0.021 for the comparative prior year period.

Michael T. Pugh, the Company's President and CEO said: "We are making progress with a third consecutive profitable quarter in spite of a challenging interest rate environment, which continues to affect margins. We remain focused on loan portfolio growth, improving asset quality, and increasing core deposits. We are pleased that our new business effort generated a 6% increase in loans during the quarter and 12% growth fiscal year-to-date. Carver's capital ratios remain strong, with a Tier 1 Capital Ratio in excess of 10%, and our non-performing loan ratios are near industry norms."

Mr. Pugh concluded, "Core deposits totaled $324 million, representing 7% fiscal year-to-date growth and 62% of the total deposits for the Bank. Low cost deposit growth remains a stable and effective funding source for lending in the communities we serve. Our new banking platform is critical to this expansion as it enables us to offer additional services to small business depositors, including the growing segment of women and minority business entrepreneurs surrounding our retail network."

Statement of Operations Highlights

Third Quarter and Nine Months Results

The Company reported net income of $111 thousand for the three months ended December 31, 2014, compared to a net loss of $823 thousand1 for the prior year period. The primary driver of the change is attributed to higher non-interest expense in the prior year quarter due to the cost of terminating the Bank's pension plan, partially offset by lower interest income in the current quarter.

The Company reported net income of $491 thousand for the nine months ended December 31, 2014, compared to net loss of $69 thousand1 for the prior year period. The change was primarily driven by recoveries in the loan loss provision, partially offset by lower net interest income and non-interest income.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income decreased $773 thousand, or 15.4%, to $4.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014, compared to $5.0 million for the comparative prior year period. Net interest income decreased $935 thousand, or 6.4%, to $13.6 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2014, compared to $14.6 million for the prior year period.

Interest income decreased $739 thousand, or 12.3%, to $5.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014, compared to $6.0 million for the prior year quarter. Interest income decreased $904 thousand, or 5.2%, to $16.6 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2014, compared to $17.5 million for the prior year period. Although the average balance of loans increased for both comparative periods, the average yield on loans decreased. A change in loan mix, with higher one-to-four family loans and lower multifamily loans, led to lower average yields. Interest income on mortgage-backed securities decreased $201 thousand for the nine months ended December 31, 2014 following a $16.7 million, or 31.7%, decrease in the average balances of mortgage-backed securities from the prior year as the Bank repositioned its investment portfolio. The average yield on mortgage-backed securities increased 19 basis points from 2.01% to 2.20% for the nine months ended December 31, 2014.

Interest expense increased 3.5% to $1.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014, and 1.0% to $3.0 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2014. An increase in interest expense on deposits was partially offset by a decrease in interest expense on borrowed funds, as the Bank grew deposits and reduced borrowings.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company recorded a $1.2 million recovery of loan losses for the three months ended December 31, 2014. Net recoveries of $434 thousand were recognized, compared to $68 thousand in the prior year quarter. For the nine months ended December 31, 2014, the Company recorded a $2.6 million recovery of loan losses, compared to $726 thousand for the prior year period. Net recoveries of $1.3 million were recognized for the nine month period, compared to net charge-offs of $1.8 million in the prior year period. Recoveries of previously charged-off loans in the current period and decreases in historic loan loss rates were the primary drivers of the improvement in both periods.

Non-interest Income

Non-interest income increased $198 thousand, or 16.4%, to $1.4 million, compared to $1.2 million for the prior year quarter. The increase was primarily attributed to higher loan fees during the quarter driven by prepayment fees on commercial real estate loans. Further, a gain on sale of real estate owned of $41 thousand was recognized for the current quarter, compared to a loss of $149 thousand in the prior year quarter.

For the nine months ended December 31, 2014, non-interest income decreased $743 thousand, or 15.1%, to $4.2 million, compared to $4.9 million in the prior year period. Non-interest income in the prior year period included gains on sales of loans and securities of $768 thousand and $507 thousand, respectively, as the Bank disposed of non-performing loans and repositioned its investment portfolio. Other non-interest income for the current nine month period included a $323 thousand grant award from the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (the "CDFI Fund") of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Non-interest Expense

Non-interest expense decreased $1.5 million, or 17.7%, to $6.8 million, compared to $8.3 million1 for the prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily attributed to higher employee compensation and benefit expense in the prior year associated with the termination of the Company's pension plan.

For the nine months ended December 31, 2014, non-interest expense remained relatively unchanged at $20.1 million1, decreasing $43 thousand, or 0.2%, from the prior year period due to lower data processing costs following a change in the Bank's core technology platform, and lower federal deposit insurance premiums, partially offset by the expense associated with terminating the Company's pension plan, an increase in the reserves for losses associated with repurchase of mortgage loans sold by the Bank to Fannie Mae, and higher consulting fees.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $62 thousand, compared to $6 thousand for the prior year quarter. For the nine months ended December 31, 2014, income tax expense was $135 thousand, compared to $94 thousand in the prior year period.

Financial Condition Highlights

At December 31, 2014, total assets increased $4.5 million, or 0.7% to $644.4 million, compared to $639.8 million at March 31, 2014. The overall change was primarily due to increases of $46.9 million in the loan portfolio net of the allowance for loan losses and $14.2 million in the investment portfolio, offset by a decrease of $59.3 million in cash and due from banks.

Total investment securities increased $14.2 million, or 14.4%, to $112.7 million at December 31, 2014, compared to $98.5 million at March 31, 2014 as the Bank purchased new securities to increase its investment portfolio to redeploy excess cash balances.

Net loans receivable increased $45.6 million, or 11.7%, to $435.5 million at December 31, 2014, compared to $390.0 million at March 31, 2014 following growth in business and residential loans from loan purchases and originations.

Loans held-for-sale ("HFS") decreased $2.4 million, or 48.0%, to $2.6 million at December 31, 2014, following transfer of a loan into other real estate owned during the first fiscal quarter.

Total liabilities increased $1.5 million, or 0.3%, to $590.2 million at December 31, 2014, compared to $588.7 million at March 31, 2014 following growth in deposits, offset by a reduction in borrowed funds.

Deposits increased $11.7 million, or 2.3%, to $521.0 million at December 31, 2014, compared to $509.4 million at March 31, 2014 following an increase in money market and checking accounts, partially offset by lower certificates of deposits.

Advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York ("FHLB-NY") and other borrowed money decreased $11.0 million, or 15.6%, to $59.4 million at December 31, 2014, compared to $70.4 million at March 31, 2014, as growth in deposits replaced maturing short-term borrowings.

Total equity increased $3.0 million, or 5.9%, to $54.2 million at December 31, 2014, compared to $51.2 million at March 31, 2014. The increase was primarily due to a $2.8 million reduction in unrealized losses on investments and net income earned for the nine month period.

Asset Quality

At December 31, 2014, non-performing assets totaled $15.1 million, or 2.3% of total assets, compared to $18.9 million or 3.0% of total assets at March 31, 2014, and $24.0 million or 3.8% of total assets at December 31, 2013. Non-performing assets at December 31, 2014 were comprised of $4.8 million of loans 90 days or more past due and nonaccruing, $3.7 million of loans classified as a troubled debt restructuring, $3.9 million of other real estate owned, and $2.6 million of loans classified as HFS.

The allowance for loan losses was $5.9 million at December 31, 2014, which represents a ratio of the allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans of 68.8% compared to 57.6% at March 31, 2014. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.4% at December 31, 2014, compared to 1.9% at March 31, 2014 as non-performing assets decreased 20.3% during the period.

________________

1 Results for the three and nine month periods ended December 31, 2013 have been adjusted from previously issued results to include an additional charge of $716 thousand associated with terminating the Company's pension plan in December 2013.

(1) Nonaccrual status denotes any loan where the delinquency exceeds 90 days past due and in the opinion of management the collection of contractual interest and/or principal is doubtful. Payments received on a nonaccrual loan are either applied to the outstanding principal balance or recorded as interest income, depending on assessment of the ability to collect on the loan.
(2) Other non-performing assets generally represent loans that the Bank is in the process of selling and has designated held-for-sale or property acquired by the Bank in settlement of loans less costs to sell (i.e., through foreclosure, repossession or as an in-substance foreclosure). These assets are recorded at the lower of their cost or fair value.
(3) Troubled debt restructured loans performing in accordance with their modified terms for less than six months and those not performing in accordance with their modified terms are considered nonaccrual and are included in the nonaccrual category in the table above. At December 31, 2014, there were $4.7 million TDR loans that have performed in accordance with their modified terms for a period of at least six months. These loans are generally considered performing loans and are not presented in the table above.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to evaluating Carver Bancorp's results of operations in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), management routinely supplements their evaluation with an analysis of certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as the efficiency ratio, return on average stockholders' equity excluding average accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) ("AOCI"), and average stockholders' equity excluding AOCI to average assets. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is useful to investors in understanding the Company's underlying operating performance and trends, and facilitates comparisons with the performance of other banks and thrifts. Further, the efficiency ratio is used by management in its assessment of financial performance, including non-interest expense control.

Return on equity measures how efficiently we generate profits from the resources provided by our net assets. Return on average stockholders' equity is calculated by dividing annualized net income (loss) by average stockholders' equity, excluding AOCI. Management believes that this performance measure explains the results of the Company's ongoing businesses in a manner that allows for a better understanding of the underlying trends in the Company's current businesses. For purposes of the Company's presentation, AOCI includes the changes in the market or fair value of its investment portfolio and former pension plan. These fluctuations have been excluded due to the unpredictable nature of this item and is not necessarily indicative of current operating or future performance.
