HOQUIAM, Wash., April 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Timberland Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:TSBK) ("Timberland" or "the Company") today reported net income to common shareholders of $1.45 million, or $0.21 per diluted common share, for the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2015. This compares to net income to common shareholders of $1.16 million, or $0.16 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 and net income to common shareholders of $1.73 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2014. For the first six months of fiscal 2015, Timberland earned $3.18 million, or $0.45 per diluted common share, compared to $2.56 million, or $0.37 per diluted common share for the first six months of fiscal 2014.

Timberland's Board of Directors also declared a $0.06 per common share quarterly cash dividend, payable on May 28, 2015 to shareholders of record on May 14, 2015.

"The Company experienced solid loan and deposit growth during the past quarter," said Michael R. Sand, President and CEO. "Loan originations increased 11% from the linked quarter and 74% from the comparable quarter one year earlier. Deposits increased 4% during the quarter with transaction accounts accounting for the majority of the increase. Each fiscal year since 2010 the Company has increased its net loans outstanding, deposit balances and profitability while maintaining a remarkably stable net interest margin. We have continued our emphasis on growing the Bank profitably while positioning it to respond positively to rising interest rates."

Reflecting continued improvement in asset quality, no provision for loan losses was required for the quarters ended March 31, 2015, December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2014. The Bank had net recoveries of $60,000 for the current quarter compared to net charge-offs of $105,000 for the preceding quarter and net recoveries of $4,000 during the comparable quarter one year ago. The non-performing assets to total assets ratio improved to 2.55% at March 31, 2015 from 2.68% three months earlier and 3.69% one year ago.

Total delinquent loans (past due 30 days or more) decreased 5% to $12.2 million at March 31, 2015, from $12.8 million at December 31, 2014 and decreased 17% from $14.7 million one year ago. Non-accrual loans increased slightly to $10.9 million at March 31, 2015, from $10.8 million at December 31, 2014 and decreased from $12.6 million at March 31, 2014. The non-accrual loans at March 31, 2015 were comprised of 35 loans and 25 credit relationships. By dollar amount per category: 45% are secured by residential properties; 39% are secured by land; 14% are secured by commercial properties; and 2% are secured by residential construction projects.

OREO and other repossessed assets decreased 4% to $7.9 million at March 31, 2015, from $8.2 million at December 31, 2014 and decreased 40% from $13.2 million at March 31, 2014. At March 31, 2015, the OREO portfolio consisted of 35 individual properties and one other repossessed asset. The properties consisted of 22 land parcels totaling $3.6 million, four commercial real estate properties totaling $2.1 million, nine one- to-four-family homes totaling $2.1 million and one mobile home with a book value of $67,000. During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, five OREO properties totaling $560,000 were sold for a net gain of $94,000.

Balance Sheet Management

Total assets increased by $26.4 million, or 4%, to $776.3 million at March 31, 2015, from $749.9 million at December 31, 2014. The increase was primarily due to an $11.7 million increase in cash and cash equivalents, a $10.7 million increase in net loans receivable and a $3.9 million increase in CDs held for investment. The increase in total assets was funded primarily by a $25.3 million increase in total deposits.

Liquidity as measured by cash and cash equivalents, CDs held for investment and available for sale investments securities was 18.2% of total liabilities at March 31, 2015, compared to 16.5% at December 31, 2014, and 16.0% one year ago.

Net loans receivable increased by $10.7 million to $584.3 million at March 31, 2015, from $573.6 million at December 31, 2014. The increase was primarily due to an $8.2 million increase in construction loans, a $4.8 million increase in one- to four-family loans, a $3.2 million increase in multi-family loans, a $2.0 million increase in commercial business loans and a $1.2 million increase in commercial real estate loans. These increases to net loans receivable were partially offset by a $7.2 million increase in the undisbursed portion of construction loans in process and a $1.3 million decrease in total consumer loans.

Total deposits increased $25.3 million, or 4%, to $643.3 million at March 31, 2015, from $618.0 million at December 31, 2014. The increases were primarily due to an $11.5 million increase in non-interest bearing account balances, a $6.7 million increase in N.O.W. checking account balances, a $6.0 million increase in savings account balances and a $2.7 million increase in money market account balances. These increases were partially offset by a $1.6 million decrease in certificates of deposit account balances.

"The Company's net interest margin has remained very stable during this interest rate cycle, and each quarter brings the Company closer to eliminating three Federal Home Loan Bank advances that represent approximately 48% of its interest expense. The three advances, which require interest payments of approximately $1.85 million annually, mature in equal $15 million increments during the months of December 2016, August 2017 and September 2017," stated Sand.

Shareholders' Equity

Total shareholders' equity increased $1.16 million to $85.42 million at March 31, 2015, from $84.27 million at December 31, 2014. The increase in shareholders' equity was primarily due to net income of $1.45 million for the quarter, which was partially offset by dividend payments of $423,000 to common shareholders. Book value per common share increased to $12.11 and tangible book value per common share increased to $11.31 at March 31, 2015.

Operating Results

Operating revenue (net interest income before provision for loan losses, plus non-interest income excluding OTTI charges and gains or losses on sale of investments) remained stable at $8.78 million for both the current quarter and the preceding quarter and increased 5% from $8.39 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. Operating revenue increased 3% to $17.56 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015 from $17.05 million for the comparable period one year ago.

Net interest income decreased 2% to $6.57 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, from $6.70 million for the preceding quarter and increased 2% from $6.44 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. Net interest income was higher during the quarter ended December 31, 2014, primarily due to the collection of $125,000 of non-accrual interest on two loans. The net interest margin for the current quarter decreased to 3.69% from 3.88% for the preceding quarter and from 3.85% for the comparable quarter one year ago. The net interest margin for the current quarter was impacted by an increase in the level of interest-earning assets held in lower-yielding overnight funds. For the first six months of fiscal 2015, net interest income increased 3% to $13.27 million from $12.90 million for the first six months of fiscal 2014. Timberland's net interest margin for the first six months of fiscal 2015 decreased to 3.78% from 3.81% for the first six months of fiscal 2014.

Non-interest income increased to $2.21 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, from $2.12 million in the preceding quarter and increased 10% from $2.01 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. The increase in non-interest income compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to a $112,000 increase in gain on sale of loans, which was partially offset by decreases in the gain on sale of investments and service charges on deposits. The increase in gain on sale of loans was primarily due to an increase in the dollar volume of fixed-rate one- to four-family loans sold during the current quarter. Fiscal year-to-date non-interest income increased 3% to $4.34 million from $4.21 million for the first six months of fiscal 2014.

Total operating (non-interest) expenses increased 6% to $6.65 million for the second fiscal quarter from $6.27 million for the preceding quarter and decreased 1% from $6.75 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. The increased expenses for the current quarter compared to the preceding quarter were primarily due to a $273,000 increase in OREO and other repossessed assets expense, a $92,000 increase in data processing and telecommunications expense and smaller increases in several other categories. These increases were partially offset by decreases in salaries and employee benefits and ATM and debit card processing expenses. The increase in OREO related expense was primarily due to fair value write-downs on several properties. The increase in data processing and telecommunications expense was primarily due to upgrading data line capacity and higher data processing and internet banking costs based on volumes and asset size. Fiscal year-to-date operating expenses decreased 1% to $12.93 million from $13.0 million for the first six months of fiscal 2014.

The provision for income taxes decreased $149,000 to $676,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, from $825,000 for the preceding quarter, primarily due to decreased income before income taxes. The effective tax rate was 31.78% for the current quarter and 32.33% for the quarter ended December 31, 2014.
