Provident Financial Holdings Reports First Quarter of Fiscal 2017 Earnings

RIVERSIDE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Provident Financial Holdings, Inc. (“Company”), (NASDAQ:PROV), the holding company for Provident Savings Bank, F.S.B. (“Bank”), today announced first quarter earnings for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, the Company reported net income of $1.59 million, or $0.20 per diluted share (on 8.15 million average diluted shares outstanding), down from net income of $2.44 million, or $0.28 per diluted share (on 8.74 million average diluted shares outstanding), in the comparable period a year ago. The decrease in net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, as compared to the same period last year, was primarily attributable to a decrease in the gain on sale of loans and increases in salaries and employee benefits expense and other operating expenses, partly offset by an increase in net interest income.

“We continue to grow our preferred loan portfolio and are confident that the moderate pace of growth is the best strategy in the current environment where more rapid growth would require more liberal underwriting standards and, in our view, create unacceptable credit risk in the loan portfolio. Additionally, it is important to note that our growth is primarily funded with a combination of core deposits and long-term borrowings which we believe mitigates our interest rate risk,” said Craig G. Blunden, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “Mortgage banking volume was favorable for the quarter although our loan sale margin declined to the lower end of the recent range as a result of weaker loan servicing premiums and a less profitable product composition. However, we expect better execution in the loan sale margin as we progress through our fiscal year as market volatility subsides,” he concluded.

Return on average assets for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 decreased to 0.53 percent from 0.83 percent for the same period of fiscal 2016; and return on average stockholders’ equity for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 decreased to 4.79 percent from 6.96 percent for the comparable period of fiscal 2016.

On a sequential quarter basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 reflects a $961,000, or 38 percent, decrease from the net income of $2.56 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. The decrease in net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was primarily attributable to a decrease in the gain on sale of loans. Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 were $0.20 per share, down 35 percent, from the $0.31 per share during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. Return on average assets decreased to 0.53 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from 0.87 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016; and return on average stockholders’ equity for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was 4.79 percent, compared to 7.61 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

Net interest income increased $1.02 million, or 13 percent, to $9.09 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $8.07 million for the same quarter of fiscal 2016, attributable to an increase in the net interest margin and a higher average earning assets balance. The net interest margin during the first quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 26 basis points to 3.08 percent from 2.82 percent in the same quarter last year, primarily due to the increase in the average yield of earning assets and a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities. The average yield of interest-earning assets increased by 22 basis points to 3.67 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from 3.45 percent in the same quarter last year, while the average cost of liabilities decreased by six basis points to 0.64 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from 0.70 percent in the same quarter last year. The increase in the average yield of interest-earning assets was primarily due to the utilization of interest-earning deposits earning a nominal yield to fund higher balances of loans receivable and investment securities, which earned a significantly higher yield. The average earning assets balance for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $1.18 billion, up three percent from $1.14 billion during the same period last year.

The average balance of loans outstanding, including loans held for sale, increased by $115.4 million, or 12 percent, to $1.08 billion in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $962.6 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2016, primarily due to an increase in average loans held for sale attributable to elevated mortgage banking activity. The average yield on loans receivable decreased by five basis points to 3.89 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from an average yield of 3.94 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2016. The decrease in the average loan yield was primarily attributable to a decrease in the average yield of loans held for sale. The average balance of loans held for sale in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $231.1 million with an average yield of 3.59 percent as compared to $150.8 million with an average yield of 3.86 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2016. The outstanding balance of “preferred loans” (multi-family, commercial real estate, construction and commercial business loans) increased by $25.3 million, or five percent, to $544.5 million at September 30, 2016 from $519.2 million at June 30, 2016, net of undisbursed loan funds of $10.4 million and $11.3 million, respectively. The percentage of preferred loans to total loans held for investment at September 30, 2016 increased to 63 percent from 61 percent at June 30, 2016. Loan principal payments received in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 were $50.2 million, compared to $45.8 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2016.

The average balance of investment securities increased by $35.0 million, or 240 percent, to $49.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $14.6 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase was attributable to the mortgage-backed securities purchases during fiscal 2016, partly offset by principal payments received on mortgage-backed securities during the same period. The average yield on investment securities decreased 115 basis points to 0.68 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from 1.83 percent for the same quarter of fiscal 2016. The decrease in the average yield was primarily attributable to the mortgage-backed securities purchases during fiscal 2016 which had lower average yields than the existing portfolio.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) – San Francisco distributed an $185,000 cash dividend to the Bank, a $15,000 decrease from the cash dividend received by the Bank in the same quarter last year.

The average balance of the Company’s interest-earning deposits, primarily cash with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, decreased $114.5 million, or 73 percent, to $43.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $157.8 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2016. The decrease in interest-earning deposits was primarily due to redeployment of excess cash to fund loans held for investment, loans held for sale and purchases of investment securities. The average yield earned on interest-earning deposits in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was 0.50 percent, up from 0.25 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2016 as a result of the impact of the increase in the federal funds rate in December 2015.

Average deposits increased $6.3 million, or one percent, to $932.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $926.5 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2016. The average cost of deposits decreased by six basis points to 0.43 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from 0.49 percent in the same quarter last year, primarily due to a decrease in the average cost of savings accounts and a lower percentage of time deposits to the total deposit balance. Transaction account balances or “core deposits” increased $24.1 million, or four percent, to $641.6 million at September 30, 2016 from $617.5 million at June 30, 2016, while time deposits decreased $7.0 million, or two percent, to $301.9 million at September 30, 2016 from $308.9 million at June 30, 2016, consistent with the Bank’s strategy to decrease the percentage of time deposits in its deposit base and to increase the percentage of lower cost checking and savings accounts.

The average balance of borrowings, which consisted of FHLB – San Francisco advances, increased $35.5 million, or 39 percent, to $126.9 million while the average cost of advances decreased 62 basis points to 2.19 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to an average balance of $91.4 million with an average cost of 2.81 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2016. The decrease in the average cost of advances was primarily due to the increased utilization of overnight borrowings and short-term advances with a lower interest rate than long-term advances. The increase in the average balance of borrowings was utilized to fund loans held for sale and loans held for investment and purchases of investment securities.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company recorded a recovery from the allowance for loan losses of $150,000 compared to the recovery of $38,000 recorded during the same period of fiscal 2016 and the $621,000 recovery recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 (sequential quarter). These recoveries were primarily attributable to continued improvement in loan credit quality and net recoveries of previously charged-off loans.

Non-performing assets, with underlying collateral primarily located in California, increased slightly to $13.5 million, or 1.09 percent of total assets, at September 30, 2016, compared to $13.0 million, or 1.11 percent of total assets, at June 30, 2016. Non-performing loans at September 30, 2016 decreased $296,000 or three percent since June 30, 2016 to $10.0 million and were primarily comprised of 34 single-family loans ($9.2 million); two multi-family loans ($703,000); one commercial business loan ($74,000) and one consumer loan (fully reserved). Real estate owned acquired in the settlement of loans at September 30, 2016 increased $790,000, or 29 percent, to $3.5 million (six properties) from $2.7 million (four properties) at June 30, 2016. The real estate owned at September 30, 2016 was comprised of six single-family real estate properties.

Net recoveries for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 were $205,000 or 0.08 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable, compared to net recoveries of $348,000 or 0.14 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 and net recoveries of $1.09 million or 0.45 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 (sequential quarter).

Classified assets at September 30, 2016 were $22.4 million, comprised of $8.9 million of loans in the special mention category, $10.0 million of loans in the substandard category and $3.5 million in real estate owned. Classified assets at June 30, 2016 were $21.9 million, comprised of $8.9 million of loans in the special mention category, $10.3 million of loans in the substandard category and $2.7 million in real estate owned. For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, no loans were restructured from their original terms or newly classified as a restructured loan.

The allowance for loan losses was $8.7 million at September 30, 2016, or 1.01 percent of gross loans held for investment, compared to $8.7 million at June 30, 2016, or 1.02 percent of gross loans held for investment. Management believes that, based on currently available information, the allowance for loan losses is sufficient to absorb potential losses inherent in loans held for investment at September 30, 2016.

Non-interest income decreased by $1.20 million, or 11 percent, to $9.25 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $10.45 million in the same period of fiscal 2016, primarily as a result of a decrease in the gain on sale of loans and losses on the sale and operations of real estate owned during the current quarter as compared to the comparable period last year. On a sequential quarter basis, non-interest income decreased $1.34 million, or 13 percent, primarily as a result of a decrease in the gain on sale of loans.

The gain on sale of loans decreased to $8.00 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 from $8.92 million in the comparable quarter last year, reflecting the impact of a lower average loan sale margin, partly offset by a higher loan sale volume. The average loan sale margin from mortgage banking was 125 basis points for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, down 40 basis points from 165 basis points in the same quarter last year and down 36 basis points from 161 basis points in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 (sequential quarter). Total loan sale volume, which includes the net change in commitments to extend credit on loans to be held for sale, was $640.3 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2016, up 19 percent, from $539.6 million in the comparable quarter last year. The gain on sale of loans includes a favorable fair-value adjustment on loans held for sale and derivative financial instruments (commitments to extend credit, commitments to sell loans, commitments to sell mortgage-backed securities, and option contracts) that amounted to a net gain of $2.09 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to an unfavorable fair-value adjustment that amounted to a net loss of $345,000 in the same period last year.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2017, a total of $647.3 million of loans were originated and purchased for sale, 20 percent higher than the $540.3 million for the same period last year, and 16 percent higher than the $557.2 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 (sequential quarter). Total loans sold during the quarter ended September 30, 2016 were $568.3 million, five percent lower than the $601.0 million sold during the same quarter last year, but three percent higher than the $551.1 million sold during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 (sequential quarter). Total loan originations (including loans originated and purchased for investment and loans originated and purchased for sale) were $705.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, an increase of 23 percent from $575.5 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2016, and 10 percent higher than the $639.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 (sequential quarter).

The sale and operations of real estate owned acquired in the settlement of loans resulted in a net loss of $103,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to a $229,000 net gain in the comparable period last year. One real estate owned property was sold in the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to two real estate owned properties sold in the same quarter last year. Three real estate owned properties were acquired in the settlement of loans during the first quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to two properties acquired in the comparable period last year. As of September 30, 2016, the real estate owned balance was $3.5 million (six properties), compared to $2.7 million (four properties) at June 30, 2016.

Non-interest expenses increased $1.27 million to $15.63 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from $14.36 million in the same quarter last year. The increase was primarily a result of increases in salaries and employee benefits expense, premises and occupancy expenses and other operating expenses.

The Company’s efficiency ratio increased to 85 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 from 78 percent in the same quarter last year, due to the decrease in non-interest income and an increase in non-interest expenses, partly offset by an increase in net interest income.

The Company’s provision for income taxes was $1.26 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, a decrease of $486,000 or 28 percent, from $1.75 million in the same quarter last year, as a result of the decrease in income before taxes. The effective income tax rate for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 was 44.2 percent as compared to 41.7 percent in the same quarter last year. The Company believes that the tax provision recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 reflects its current income tax obligations.

The Company repurchased 60,236 shares of its common stock during the quarter ended September 30, 2016 at an average cost of $19.27 per share. During the quarter, the Company completed the purchase of the remaining 28,350 shares in the October 2015 stock repurchase plan; and as of September 30, 2016, a total of 31,886 shares or eight percent of the shares authorized in the May 2016 stock repurchase plan have been purchased, leaving 365,114 shares available for future purchases.

The Bank currently operates 14 retail/business banking offices in Riverside County and San Bernardino County (Inland Empire). Provident Bank Mortgage operates two wholesale loan production offices and 14 retail loan production offices located throughout California.
