Balance Sheet Review

Average loan balances increased $31.8 million during the fourth quarter compared to the preceding quarter. Net loan balance increased 9.2% compared to $520.9 million a year ago. At March 31, 2015, there was $53.0 million in the loan pipeline and $21.2 million in undisbursed construction loans that are anticipated to fund over the next fiscal year.

"The greater Portland/Vancouver market continues to generate strong job growth, attract population in-migration and is recovering at a faster pace than much of the nation," said Ron Wysaske, president and chief operating officer. "Consequently, over the past year, we have generated solid growth in nearly every major category of our loan portfolio, with accelerating expansion in construction lending and commercial loans."

Total deposits increased to $720.9 million at March 31, 2015, compared to $690.1 million a year earlier and $689.3 million at December 31, 2014. The Company continues to focus on attracting core deposits and building long-term customer relationships. As of March 31, 2015, checking accounts represented 37.1% of total deposits (interest checking accounts represent 16.0% and non-interest checking accounts represent 21.1%).

Average deposit balances were $711.5 million for the quarter-ended March 31, 2015 compared to $693.7 million in the preceding quarter.

The Company continues to focus on improving value for its shareholders. At March 31, 2015, shareholders' equity improved to $103.8 million compared to $98.0 million a year earlier. Tangible book value improved to $3.46 per share at March 31, 2015 compared to $3.20 per share a year ago. The Company paid a $0.01125 cash dividend on April 21, 2015.

Credit Quality

"Credit quality continues to improve reflecting the diligence of our team and the improving local economy," said Dan Cox, executive vice president and chief credit officer. "The positive momentum we have gained while working our problem asset balances down has allowed us to focus more attention on growing our loan portfolio."

Classified assets decreased $6.0 million during the quarter to $16.8 million at March 31, 2015, compared to $22.9 million at December 31, 2014. The classified asset ratio decreased to 17.0% at March 31, 2015, compared to 23.8% three months earlier. During the past twelve months, Riverview has reduced its classified assets by $26.6 million, or 61.2%.

Riverview's real estate owned ("REO") balances were $1.6 million at March 31, 2015. Sales of REO properties remained strong with total sales of $709,000 during the quarter, with no write-downs and $708,000 in additions.

Riverview recorded a $750,000 recapture of loan losses during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to a $400,000 recapture of loan losses during the preceding quarter. For the full year, Riverview recorded a $1.8 million recapture of loan losses compared to a $3.7 million recapture in fiscal year 2014. The recapture of loan losses reflects the continued improvement in credit quality as well as the positive impact from continued loan recoveries.

Net loan charge-offs totaled $189,000 during the quarter compared to net recoveries of $100,000 in the preceding quarter. For the full year, Riverview had net recoveries of $11,000. The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2015 totaled $10.8 million, representing 1.86% of total loans and 202.4% of nonperforming loans.

Income Statement

Riverview's fiscal fourth quarter net interest income was $6.9 million, which was a 16.1% increase compared to $6.0 million in the fiscal fourth quarter a year ago and a 2.9% increase compared to $6.7 million in the preceding quarter. For the fiscal year, net interest income increased to $26.7 million compared to $24.2 million in fiscal year 2014. Higher average balances in both the loan and investment portfolios led to the increase.

"Over the past year, we have grown the loan portfolio and allocated additional cash balances into higher yielding loan and investment products which helped our net interest margin expand 13 basis points during the quarter compared to three months earlier and improve by 38 basis points compared to the year ago quarter," said Kevin Lycklama, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "This margin expansion, coupled with the growth in our loan and investment portfolios, has resulted in an increase in our net interest income of nearly $2.5 million during this past fiscal year. We anticipate that we will continue to see positive results from these changes in the coming fiscal year."

Riverview's net interest margin increased to 3.71% in the fiscal fourth quarter from 3.58% for the preceding quarter and 3.33% in the fiscal fourth quarter a year ago. Part of this increase was due to the collection of interest from a prior nonaccrual loan of $102,000, which contributed approximately five basis points to the margin in the fourth quarter. For the fiscal year, Riverview's net interest margin improved 22 basis points to 3.59% compared to 3.37% in fiscal 2014.

Non-interest income was $2.2 million in the fourth quarter compared to $1.9 million in the fourth quarter a year ago and $2.3 million in the preceding quarter. Asset management fees increased to $727,000 during the quarter compared to $694,000 in the fourth quarter a year ago. For fiscal 2015, non-interest income increased to $8.9 million compared to $8.4 million in fiscal 2014.

"We were pleased with the growth we have seen in non-interest income over the past year," stated Lycklama. "Continuing to grow non-interest income will be a top priority for the Company in the coming fiscal year. We have several initiatives in place which we anticipate will help us to further expand on these revenues."

Riverview's non-interest expense was $7.7 million in the fourth quarter compared to $7.6 million in the preceding quarter and $7.5 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. For fiscal year 2015, Riverview's non-interest expenses decreased to $30.7 million compared to $32.0 million in the prior fiscal year.

Capital

Riverview continues to maintain capital levels in excess of the regulatory requirements to be categorized as "well capitalized" with a total risk-based capital ratio of 15.89%, Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.89% and tangible common equity to tangible assets of 9.35% at March 31, 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Riverview believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with information useful in understanding the company's financial performance; however, readers of this report are urged to review these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP results as reported.

Financial measures that exclude intangible assets are non-GAAP measures. To provide investors with a broader understanding of capital adequacy, Riverview provides non-GAAP financial measures for tangible common equity, along with the GAAP measure. Tangible common equity is calculated as shareholders' equity less goodwill and other intangible assets. In addition, tangible assets are total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets.

The following table provides a reconciliation of ending shareholders' equity (GAAP) to ending tangible shareholders' equity (non-GAAP), and ending assets (GAAP) to ending tangible assets (non-GAAP).
