Photo Release -- TFS Financial Corporation Reports Strong Financial Results

CLEVELAND, April 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TFS Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:TFSL) (the "Company"), the holding company for Third Federal Savings and Loan Association of Cleveland (the "Association"), today announced results for the three months and six months ended March 31, 2015.

The Company reported net income of $32.3 million for the six months ended March 31, 2015, compared to net income of $32.4 million for the six months ended March 31, 2014. While net income was essentially unchanged between the two periods, there were a few items of note. A decrease in the provision for loan losses was offset by a decrease in net interest income and an increase in non-interest expenses. The Company reported net income of $15.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to net income of $16.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, with similar individual variances between the two periods.

"We are pleased with our latest quarterly financial results," said Chairman and CEO Marc A. Stefanski, "but growth in housing overall is recovering slowly. That's why we have been especially pleased with the strong initial response to our $1,000 home buyer's credit program, which is designed to boost activity in the home purchase market and the economy overall. It's another example of providing a little sunshine and blue skies for our customers."

Net interest income was lower for both the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2015, as compared to the corresponding prior year periods, as the increase in interest income in the current periods was less than the increase in interest expense for each period. The average cost of our interest-bearing liabilities has been reduced over the past few years by managing retail deposit pricing and gathering additional funds as needed via wholesale channels, but an increase in longer duration FHLB advances and brokered deposits, which improved our interest rate risk characteristics, also tempered the decline in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities. Interest income was higher due to an increase in the balance of interest-earning assets (mainly loans) offsetting the lower yields received on those assets. A strategy to increase net income, which was implemented in the current fiscal year, continues to be utilized. The strategy involves borrowing, on an overnight basis, approximately $1 billion of additional funds from the FHLB. The proceeds of the borrowing, net of the required investment in FHLB stock, are deposited at the Federal Reserve. The essentially risk-free strategy serves to increase net income slightly but also negatively impacts the interest rate spread and net interest margin due to the increase in the average balance of low yield interest-earning cash equivalents. The strategy is not utilized at quarter end. The Company expects to continue this strategy as long as it is effective in increasing net income. Net interest income was $67.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 and $69.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. Net interest income decreased $2.2 million, or 1.1%, to $134.6 million for the six months ended March 31, 2015 from $136.8 million for the six months ended March 31, 2014. The interest rate spread was 2.00% for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 and 2.32% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, The interest rate spread for the six months ended March 31, 2015 was 2.00% compared to 2.30% in the same period last year. The net interest margin for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 was 2.14% compared to 2.48% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The net interest margin for the six months ended March 31, 2015 was 2.14% as compared to 2.48% for the six months ended March 31, 2014.

The Company continues to experience improving loan performance metrics, resulting in a lower provision for loan losses and net charge-offs for both the three month and six month periods this fiscal year as compared to last year. The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $3.0 million for the six months ended March 31, 2015 compared to $11.0 million for the six months ended March 31, 2014. The Company reported $7.3 million of net loan charge-offs for the six months ended March 31, 2015 compared to $20.1 million for the six months ended March 31, 2014. Of the $7.3 million of net charge-offs in the current fiscal year, $2.2 million occurred in the residential core portfolio (first mortgage loans other than the Home Today portfolio), $4.0 million occurred in the equity loans and lines of credit portfolio and $1.2 million occurred in the Home Today portfolio. The allowance for loan losses was $77.1 million, or 0.70% of total loans receivable, at March 31, 2015, compared to $81.4 million, or 0.76% of total loans receivable, at September 30, 2014. The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $1.0 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2015 and $5.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The Company reported $3.7 million of net loan charge-offs for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to $6.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Of the $3.7 million of net charge-offs, $1.5 million occurred in the residential core portfolio, $1.8 million occurred in the equity loans and lines of credit portfolio and $0.3 million occurred in the Home Today portfolio. The Home Today portfolio, which essentially has been in run-off status since 2009, totaled $145.4 million at March 31, 2015 and $154.2 million at September 30, 2014.

Non-accrual loans decreased $13.2 million to $122.3 million, or 1.12% of total loans, at March 31, 2015 from $135.5 million, or 1.27% of total loans, at September 30, 2014. The $13.2 million decrease in non-accrual loans for the six months ended March 31, 2015 consisted of an $8.2 million decrease in the residential core portfolio; a $1.5 million decrease in the equity loans and lines of credit portfolio; and a $3.5 million decrease in the Home Today portfolio.

Total loan delinquencies decreased $17.6 million to $75.4 million, or 0.69% of total loans receivable, at March 31, 2015 from $93.0 million, or 0.87% of total loans receivable, at September 30, 2014.

Total troubled debt restructurings decreased $2.1 million at March 31, 2015, to $184.3 million from $186.4 million at September 30, 2014. Of the $184.3 million of troubled debt restructurings recorded at March 31, 2015, $106.3 million was in the residential core portfolio, $20.2 million was in the equity loans and lines of credit portfolio and $57.9 million was in the Home Today portfolio. The portion of total troubled debt restructurings included as part of non-accrual loans was $76.7 million at March 31, 2015 and $79.5 million at September 30, 2014.

Total non-interest expenses increased $7.0 million to $94.8 million for the six months ended March 31, 2015 from $87.8 million for the six months ended March 31, 2014, with increases in compensation and marketing being the main reasons. Compensation increases reflect normal increases and the effect of the Company's higher stock price on equity-based compensation. The increase in marketing costs was a result of both increased marketing efforts to support loan growth and an acceleration of marketing efforts to take advantage of the spring housing markets.

Total assets increased by $330.5 million, or 3%, to $12.13 billion at March 31, 2015 from $11.80 billion at September 30, 2014. This change was mainly the result of new loan origination levels exceeding the total of loan sales and principal repayments, combined with a net increase in the combination of cash and cash equivalents and investment securities and an increase in FHLB stock.

The combination of cash and cash equivalents and investment securities increased $56.6 million, or 8%, to $806.8 million at March 31, 2015 from $750.3 million at September 30, 2014, to maintain liquidity levels. The average balance of interest-earning cash equivalents for the six months ended March 31, 2015 was $1.12 billion, reflecting the larger investment balance maintained during most of the period in connection with the strategy to increase net income discussed earlier.

The combination of loans held for investment, net and mortgage loans held for sale increased $247.0 million, or 2%, to $10.88 billion at March 31, 2015 from $10.64 billion at September 30, 2014. Residential core mortgage loans, including those held for sale, increased $303.6 million during the six months ended March 31, 2015, while the equity loans and lines of credit portfolio decreased $40.6 million. Total first mortgage loan originations were $1.01 billion for the six months ended March 31, 2015, of which 46% were adjustable rate mortgages and 31% were fixed-rate mortgages with terms of 10 years or less. During the six months ended March 31, 2015, loan sales of $56.1 million were completed, consisting of $45.2 million of current fixed-rate first mortgage loan originations that were delivered to Fannie Mae under an existing contract and $10.9 million of fixed rate loans that qualified under Fannie Mae's Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP II). Net gain on the sale of these loans was $1.8 million. During the six months ended March 31, 2014, loan sales of $42.0 million were completed, consisting of $24.6 million of fixed-rate first mortgage loans to Fannie Mae and $17.4 million of fixed rate loans that qualified under HARP II. Net gain on the sale of these loans was $0.9 million.

FHLB stock increased $29.1 million, or 72%, to $69.5 million at March 31, 2015 from $40.4 million at September 30, 2014, as a result of the increased investment requirement related to the strategy to increase net income discussed earlier.

Deposits decreased $153.0 million, or 2%, to $8.50 billion at March 31, 2015 from $8.65 billion at September 30, 2014. The decrease in deposits was the result of a $22.0 million decrease in our savings accounts, a $24.8 million increase in our checking accounts, and a $155.9 million decrease in our certificates of deposit ("CDs") for the six months ended March 31, 2015. To manage the cost and duration of our funds, maturing CDs were replaced by other savings products or borrowed funds from the FHLB, as needed. Total deposits include $477.1 million and $356.7 million of brokered CDs at March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, respectively.

Borrowed funds, all from the FHLB, increased $529.1 million, to $1.67 billion at March 31, 2015 from $1.14 billion at September 30, 2014. This increase reflects a combination of an additional $300.3 million of mainly four- to five-year term advances and $239.0 million of higher overnight advances, offset by other principal repayments, as a combination of loan growth, increased investments and reduced deposits led to increased cash demands during the period. The average balance of borrowed funds for the six months ended March 31, 2015 was $2.38 billion, reflecting the larger borrowing balance maintained during most of the period in connection with the strategy to increase net income discussed earlier.

Total shareholders' equity decreased $49.0 million to $1.79 billion at March 31, 2015 from $1.84 billion at September 30, 2014. Activity reflects $32.3 million of net income in the current fiscal year reduced by $82.0 million of repurchases of outstanding common stock, two quarterly dividends totaling $9.3 million, and a combination of adjustments related to our stock compensation plan, ESOP and accumulated other comprehensive loss. During the quarter ended March 31, 2015, a total of 2,820,000 shares were repurchased at an average cost of $14.36 per share. A total of 5,622,500 shares were repurchased at an average cost of $14.59 per share during the six months ended March 31, 2015. At March 31, 2015, there were 3,763,450 shares remaining to be purchased under the Company's sixth repurchase program. The Company declared and paid a quarterly dividend of $0.07 per share during each of the first and second fiscal quarters. As a result of a July 31, 2014 mutual member vote, Third Federal Savings and Loan Association of Cleveland, MHC (the "MHC"), the mutual holding company that owns 77% of the outstanding stock of the Company, waived the receipt of its share of the dividend paid, and is expected to waive its right to receive up to a total of $0.07 per share of future quarterly dividends from the Company prior to July 31, 2015.

Effective January 1, 2015, the Association implemented the new capital requirements for the standardized approach of the Basel III capital framework for U.S. banking organizations' ("Basel III Rules"), subject to transitional provisions extending through the end of 2018. The Basel III Rules include a new Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio, with a fully phased-in required minimum Common Equity Tier 1 and Capital Conservation Buffer at 7.00%. At March 31, 2015 all capital ratios substantially exceed the amounts required for the Association to be considered "well capitalized" for regulatory capital purposes. The Association's Common Equity Tier 1 and Tier 1 ratios, as calculated under the fully phased-in Basel III Rules, were each 21.47% and the total capital ratio was 22.53%. Additionally, the Common Equity Tier 1 and Tier 1 ratios were each 24.52% and the total capital ratio was 25.57% for the Company.

The Company has received the non-objection of its regulators for the Association to pay a special dividend of $150 million to the Company representing a return of the voluntary $150 million contribution made by the Company to the Association in October 2010. This special dividend will be made in the future as the funds are needed by the Company. Because of its intercompany nature, this future dividend payment will have no impact on the Company's capital ratios or its consolidated statement of condition, but will reduce the Association's reported capital ratios.

Traditional presentation slides as of March 31, 2015 will be available on the Company's website, www.thirdfederal.com under the Investor Relations link under the "About Us" tab, beginning April 30, 2014. Due to decreased shareholder participation in prior conference calls over recent quarters, the Company will not be hosting a conference call to discuss its operating results.
