Balance Sheet Review
"Our strong loan growth during the quarter, particularly in the commercial real estate loan portfolio, contributed to solid balance sheet growth again this quarter," said Ron Wysaske, president and chief operating officer. "Our loan pipeline remains strong as we continue to focus our teams on developing new relationships. At September 30, 2015, our loan pipeline totaled $64.8 million."
Total loans grew at an annualized rate of 18.0% during the quarter-ended September 30, 2015. Loan originations totaled $77.4 million during the quarter compared to $40.9 million in the preceding quarter. At September 30, 2015, there was an additional $25.0 million in undisbursed construction loans, the majority of which are expected to fund during the current fiscal year.
Deposits increased $34.5 million during the quarter. Average deposit balances increased $14.8 million during the quarter and were $43.9 million higher than the second quarter a year ago. Checking accounts continue to account for the majority of the increase with balances growing by $26.4 million, or 9.3%, during the quarter. Checking account balances represented 40.8% of total deposits at September 30, 2015.
At September 30, 2015, shareholders' equity increased $1.9 million to $106.4 million compared to $104.4 million in the preceding quarter. Tangible book value per share improved to $3.57 at September 30, 2015 compared to $3.49 in the preceding quarter. The Company paid a $0.015 cash dividend on October 27, 2015.
Riverview's net interest income for the second fiscal quarter increased to $7.2 million compared to $7.1 million in the preceding quarter and $6.7 million in the second fiscal quarter a year ago. The increase was due primarily to the strong growth in the loan and investment portfolios during the past fiscal year.
The net interest margin was 3.64% in the second fiscal quarter compared to 3.69% in the preceding quarter and 3.61% in the second quarter a year ago. "Net interest margin continues to be impacted by our high cash balances and the low rate environment," said Kevin Lycklama, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "Additionally, the preceding quarter included the collection of approximately $128,000 of past due interest on two prior nonaccrual loans which contributed an additional six basis points to the first quarter's net interest margin."
Non-interest income was $2.2 million in the second fiscal quarter, a decrease of $333,000 compared to preceding quarter. The decrease was primarily attributable to the collection of $171,000 in prepayment penalties on loan payoffs in the first quarter along with a decrease in gain on sale of loans held for sale during the second quarter. In the first six months of fiscal 2016, non-interest income increased to $4.8 million compared to $4.4 million for the same period in prior year.
Riverview Asset Management and Trust Company's assets under management were $410.5 million at September 30, 2015 compared to $363.7 million a year ago. Asset management fees totaled $801,000 during the second quarter of fiscal year 2016 compared to $710,000 in the second quarter a year ago.
Riverview's non-interest expense was $7.3 million in the second quarter, a decrease of $461,000 compared to the preceding quarter. The decrease was due primarily to a decline in real estate owned ("REO") expenses and salaries and employee benefits expense. Compared to the second quarter a year ago, non-interest expense decreased $390,000. The decrease from the prior year period was due to a $58,000 decrease in FDIC insurance premiums and a $168,000 decrease in occupancy expense due primarily to the closure of our Wood Village branch in October 2014 .
"Our focus on improving our credit quality metrics continues to be successful, with non-performing loans ("NPL") and REO balances declining during the quarter," said Dan Cox, executive vice president and chief credit officer.
NPLs were $3.8 million, or 0.63% of total loans, at September 30, 2015 compared to $3.8 million, or 0.66% of total loans, at June 30, 2015 and $11.7 million, or 2.12% of total loans, a year ago. During the last 12 months NPLs have declined by $8.0 million, or 67.9%. Loans past due 30-89 days were 0.14% of total loans at September 30, 2015 and June 30 2015.
REO balances were $909,000 at September 30, 2015 compared to $1.3 million three months earlier. Sales of REO properties totaled $313,000 during the quarter, with $127,000 in write-downs and no new additions.
Classified assets decreased to $7.5 million at September 30, 2015 compared to $14.7 million at June 30, 2015. The classified asset ratio was 7.2% at September 30, 2015 compared to 14.4% three months earlier. During the past twelve months, Riverview has reduced its classified assets by $17.7 million, or 70.3%.
Riverview recorded a $300,000 recapture of loan losses during the second quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to a $500,000 recapture of loan losses during the preceding quarter. The recapture of loan losses reflects the improvement in credit quality and the decline in loan charge-offs during the past year.
Net loan recoveries were $76,000 during the quarter compared to net loan recoveries of $75,000 in the preceding quarter. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2015 totaled $10.1 million, representing 1.70% of total loans and 268.2% of nonperforming loans.
Riverview continues to maintain capital levels well in excess of the regulatory requirements to be categorized as "well capitalized" with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.45%, Tier 1 leverage ratio of 11.22% and tangible common equity to tangible assets of 9.24% at September 30, 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 total assets (GAAP) to ending tangible assets (non-GAAP).
