HONOLULU, July 29, 2016 (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 $4.04 million or $0.43 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2016, compared to $3.84 million or $0.41 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2015.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on August 26, 2016 to stockholders of record as of August 12, 2016.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Hawaii’s strong economy has allowed us to grow our loan portfolio by 13.4% from June 30, 2015 to June 30, 2016. The solid growth in our loan portfolio has resulted in a 5.2% rise in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period last year. Our strong performance will allow us to pay our 27th consecutive dividend.”

Interest Income

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased to $14.52 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 from $13.96 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. Total interest and dividend income was $16.54 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $15.61 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The increase in interest and dividend income was primarily due to a $1.38 million increase in interest earned on loans, which occurred because of the $148.52 million growth in loans receivable as new loan originations exceeded loan repayments and loan sales. The increase in interest income on loans was offset by a $524,000 decline in interest income on investment securities due to a $69.72 million decrease in the investment securities portfolio as repayments and sales exceeded securities purchased.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense increased to $1.94 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 from $1.55 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. Interest expense on deposits increased to $1.47 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 from $1.15 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The increase in interest expense on deposits occurred because of the $96.38 million growth in total deposits over the past year. Interest expense on advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank rose by $99,000 due to a $12.00 million increase in Federal Home Loan Bank advances, which was primarily used to fund new loans. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, the provision for loan losses was $84,000 compared to a $101,000 provision for the three months ended June 30, 2015.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $1.13 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $1.25 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The reduction in noninterest income was primarily due to a $54,000 decrease in service fees on loans and deposit accounts and a $50,000 decrease in the gain on sale of investment securities for the three months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2015.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $8.99 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $8.84 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. Salaries and employee benefits was $5.26 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $5.06 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense is primarily due to the increased staffing to handle the additional workload associated with an increase in regulatory requirements. A decrease in the number of loans originated in the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to June 30, 2015 also increased salaries and benefit expense. As new loans are originated, the Bank capitalizes the cost of new loan originations as part of the loan and reduces salary expense. The reduction in loan volume for the three months ended June 30, 2016 lowered capitalized loan costs and increased salary expense. The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense can also be attributed to an increase in ESOP expense, health insurance and pension expense.

Assets and Equity

Total assets increased to $1.851 billion at June 30, 2016 from $1.821 billion at December 31, 2015. Loans receivable grew by $70.69 million or 6.0% to $1.259 billion at June 30, 2016 from $1.189 billion at December 31, 2015 as residential mortgage loan originations exceeded loan repayments and sales. The growth in loans receivable was funded primarily by a $24.65 million increase in deposits and a $37.07 million decrease in investment securities. Deposits increased to $1.470 billion at June 30, 2016 from $1.445 billion at December 31, 2015. Investment securities declined to $455.99 million at June 30, 2016 from $493.06 million at December 31, 2015 as repayments and the sale of securities exceeded new purchases. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $225.72 million at June 30, 2016 from $219.64 million at December 31, 2015. 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 June 30, 2016, the Company had repurchased 3,138,153 shares of stock or 25.65% of the shares issued in its initial public offering in 2009. During the first quarter of 2016, the Company announced the adoption of its seventh share repurchase program of up to 275,000 shares, or approximately 3% of the current outstanding shares. The Company uses share repurchases as part of its overall program to enhance shareholder value. In evaluating our share repurchase programs, the Company 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, depending on market and other conditions, will conduct repurchases when it makes financial sense.

Asset Quality

Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $1.84 million (7 loans) at June 30, 2016, compared to $1.63 million (7 loans) at December 31, 2015. Non-performing assets totaled $5.06 million at June 30, 2016 compared to $5.42 million at December 31, 2015. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets declined to 0.27% at June 30, 2016 from 0.30% at December 31, 2015 and continues to remain one of the lowest in the country. The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2016 was $2.28 million and represented 0.18% of total loans compared to $2.17 million and 0.18% of total loans as of December 31, 2015.
