HONOLULU, Oct. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Territorial Bancorp Inc. (NASDAQ:TBNK) (the “Company”), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $3.69 million or $0.40 per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $3.46 million or $0.37 per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.17 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on November 27, 2015 to stockholders of record as of November 12, 2015.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our loan portfolio grew by 20.1% during the first nine months of 2015. The growth in our loan portfolio allowed our net interest income to increase by 6.7% for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2014. Our net income for the three months ended September 30, 2015 has grown by 6.5% compared to the three months ended September 30, 2014 while our fully-diluted earnings per share rose to $0.40 per share from $0.37 per share. Our strong performance will allow us to pay our 23rd consecutive quarterly dividend on November 27, 2015.”

Interest Income

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased to $14.27 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 from $13.42 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Total interest and dividend income was $15.97 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $14.99 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The $981,000 growth in interest and dividend income was primarily due to a $1.79 million increase in interest earned on loans which resulted from the increase in loans receivable. The increase in interest income on loans was offset by a $797,000 decline in interest income from investment securities due to a net reduction in our investment securities portfolio as repayments exceeded securities purchased.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense increased to $1.63 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 from $1.55 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Total interest expense on deposits increased to $1.20 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 from $1.14 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 due to an increase in total deposits. Interest expenses on advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank rose by $144,000 due to an increase in Federal Home Loan Bank advances. Interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase declined by $125,000 because of a decrease in these borrowings. During the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the provision for loan losses was $71,000 compared to a $23,000 provision for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $1.19 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $1.40 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The reduction in noninterest income was primarily due to a $392,000 decrease in the gain on sale of investment securities that occurred because there were no securities sold during the three months ended September 30, 2015.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $9.37 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $9.08 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Salaries and employee benefits was $5.60 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $5.40 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense is primarily due to higher loan officer compensation that occurred primarily because of the increase in new loan originations and the hiring of additional staff to originate loans and to handle the additional workload associated with an increase in regulatory requirements. The rise in these expenses was offset by an increase in the direct costs of new loan originations.

Assets and Equity

Total assets increased to $1.784 billion at September 30, 2015 from $1.692 billion at December 31, 2014. Loans receivable grew by $195.08 million or 20.1% to $1.163 billion at September 30, 2015 from $968.21 million at December 31, 2014 as residential mortgage loan originations exceeded loan repayments and sales. The growth in loans receivable was funded primarily by a $53.32 million increase in deposits, a $35.59 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents, $64.18 million received from the net repayments and sales of investment securities and a $49.00 million increase in Federal Home Loan Bank advances. Securities sold under agreements to repurchase decreased to $55.00 million at September 30, 2015 from $72.00 million at December 31, 2014. Deposits increased to $1.413 billion at September 30, 2015 from $1.360 billion at December 31, 2014. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $218.37 million at September 30, 2015 from $216.38 million at December 31, 2014. The increase in stockholders’ equity occurred as the Company’s net income for the year exceeded share repurchases and dividends paid to shareholders.

Share Repurchases

Through September 30, 2015, the Company has repurchased 3,060,518 shares of stock or 25.02% of the shares issued in its initial public offering in 2009. The Company uses share repurchases as part of its overall program to enhance shareholder value. The Company also considers the effect of repurchases on its tangible book value per share. At the Company’s current share price level, the amount of dilution to tangible book value may limit the Company’s repurchasing of shares. The Company will closely monitor this issue and conduct repurchases as it makes financial sense, depending on market and other conditions at any given time.

Asset Quality

Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $1,516,000 (5 loans) at September 30, 2015, compared to $758,000 (4 loans) at December 31, 2014. Non-performing assets totaled $5.39 million at September 30, 2015 compared to $4.45 million at December 31, 2014. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets rose to 0.30% at September 30, 2015 from 0.26% at December 31, 2014 but continues to remain one of the lowest in the country. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2015 was $2.06 million and represented 0.18% of total loans compared to $1.69 million and 0.17% of total loans as of December 31, 2014.
