Timberland Bancorp Earnings Per Share Increased 19% to $0.43 for First Fiscal Quarter of 2017

HOQUIAM, Wash., Jan. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Timberland Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSBK) (“Timberland” or “the Company”) today reported net income of $3.15 million, or $0.43 per diluted common share, for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2016. This compares to net income of $2.53 million, or $0.36 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, and net income of $2.70 million, or $0.38 per diluted common share for the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Timberland’s Board of Directors also announced a 22% increase in the quarterly cash dividend to shareholders to $0.11 per common share, payable on February 27, 2017, to shareholders of record on February 13, 2017.

“We are pleased with the ongoing strength of the Company’s financial metrics, as we continue to grow the balance sheet toward $1 billion in assets,” stated Michael R. Sand, President and CEO. “The December quarter’s net income and earnings per share were both record operating results for the Company and have provided a strong first fiscal quarter for us to build upon during the remainder of our current fiscal year. We expect rising interest rates to have a positive impact on the Company’s earnings this year as will the scheduled maturities of two high cost Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings this summer.”

  • Book and tangible book values per common share increased to $14.32 and $13.51, respectively, at December 31, 2016.

Operating Results

Operating revenue (net interest income before provision for loan losses, plus non-interest income excluding other than temporary impairment (“OTTI”) charges on investment securities) increased 13% to $11.53 million for the current quarter from $10.23 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and increased 4% from $11.06 million for the preceding quarter.

Net interest income for the current quarter increased 8% to $8.31 million from $7.71 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and increased 6% from $7.81 million for the preceding quarter. The increased net interest income was primarily due to an increase in the average total interest-bearing assets and a reduction in the Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) borrowing expense during the quarter. Average total interest-bearing assets for the current quarter increased 10% to $849.73 million from $771.16 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and increased 3% from $828.00 million for the preceding quarter. The reduced interest expense for FHLB borrowings was primarily due to the prepayment of a $15.00 million FHLB borrowing on September 30, 2016, which reduced interest expense by approximately $54,000 per month during the quarter. During the preceding quarter, net interest income was reduced by a $138,000 pre-payment penalty incurred in connection with the prepayment of the $15.00 million FHLB borrowing. Two additional high-cost $15.00 million FHLB borrowings mature near the end of Timberland’s 2017 fiscal year.

The net interest margin for the current quarter was 3.91% compared to 3.77% for the preceding quarter and 4.00% for the comparable quarter one year ago. The net interest margin for the current quarter was increased by approximately one basis point due to the collection of $21,000 of non-accrual interest. The net interest margin for the comparable quarter one year ago was increased by approximately 25 basis points due to the collection of $475,000 of non-accrual interest. The net interest margin for the preceding quarter was reduced by approximately five basis points (net), due to the $138,000 pre-payment penalty on the FHLB borrowing, which was partially offset by the collection of $38,000 of non-accrual interest.

Non-interest income increased 3% to $3.22 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, from $3.11 million for the preceding quarter, and increased 28% from $2.52 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. The increase in non-interest income for the current quarter compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to an increase in gain on sale of loans, a decrease in OTTI charges on investment securities, and smaller increases in several other categories. These improvements to non-interest income were partially offset by a $273,000 decrease in ATM and debit card interchange transaction fee income. The increase in gain on sale of loans was primarily due to an increase in the dollar volume of fixed-rate one- to four-family loans sold during the current quarter. The decrease in ATM and debit card interchange transaction fees was primarily due to a one-time $262,000 incentive payment received from Timberland’s debit card issuer during the preceding quarter.

Total operating expenses for the current quarter decreased 2% to $6.81 million from $6.96 million for the preceding quarter and increased 5% from $6.48 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. The decreased expenses for the current quarter compared to the preceding quarter were primarily due to decreases in the premises and equipment, ATM and debit card processing and OREO and other repossessed assets categories. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in salaries and employee benefits expense. The efficiency ratio for the current quarter improved to 59.07% from 63.77% for the preceding quarter and 63.35% for the comparable quarter one year ago.

The provision for income taxes for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, increased to $1.57 million from $1.26 million for the preceding quarter, primarily due to higher pre-tax income. The effective tax rate was 33.3% for the current quarter compared to 31.7% for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Balance Sheet Management

Total assets increased 4% to $923.75 million at December 31, 2016 from $891.39 million at September 30, 2016. The increase was primarily due to a $26.53 million increase in cash and cash equivalents and a $5.99 million increase in net loans receivable. These increases were primarily funded by a $28.44 million increase in deposits during the quarter.

Liquidity, as measured by cash and cash equivalents, CDs held for investment and available for sale investments securities, was 23.1% of total liabilities at December 31, 2016, compared to 20.6% at September 30, 2016, and 19.5% one year ago.

Net loans receivable increased $5.99 million, or 1%, to $669.14 million at December 31, 2016, from $663.15 million at September 30, 2016. The increase was primarily due to a $10.97 million increase in commercial real estate loans, a $9.50 million increase in multi-family construction loans, a $3.24 million increase in custom and owner/builder one- to four-family construction loans, and a $925,000 increase in one- to four-family mortgage loans. These increases were partially offset by a $10.24 million decrease in multi-family mortgage loans, a $5.53 million increase in the amount of undisbursed construction loans in process, a $1.97 million decrease in speculative one- to four-family construction loans, and a $1.74 million decrease in consumer loans.

(a) Does not include one- to four-family loans held for sale totaling $2,008, $3,604 and $1,304 at December 31, 2016, September 30, 2016, and December 31, 2015, respectively.

Timberland originated $90.15 million in loans during the quarter ended December 31, 2016, compared to $53.76 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and $69.71 million for the preceding quarter. Timberland continues to sell fixed rate one- to four-family mortgage loans into the secondary market for asset-liability management purposes and to generate non-interest income. Timberland also (on a much smaller volume) sells the guaranteed portion of U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans. During the first quarter of fiscal 2017, fixed-rate one- to four-family mortgage loans and SBA loans totaling $24.20 million were sold compared to $12.62 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and $17.83 million for the preceding quarter.

Timberland’s investment securities decreased slightly during the quarter to $8.71 million at December 31, 2016, from $8.85 million at September 30, 2016, primarily due to scheduled amortization.

Premises and equipment increased by $1.66 million, or 10%, during the current quarter to $17.82 million at December 31, 2016, from $16.16 million at September 30, 2016. The increase was primarily a result of Timberland purchasing the building that it had been leasing for its Gig Harbor branch office for $1.84 million in December 2016.

Total deposits increased $28.44 million, or 4%, during the current quarter to $789.98 million at December 31, 2016, from $761.53 million at September 30, 2016. The current quarter’s increase was primarily due to a $14.95 million increase in money market account balances, a $7.65 million increase in savings account balances, a $4.10 million increase in non-interest bearing demand account balances and a $3.60 million increase in negotiable order of withdrawal (“NOW”) checking account balances. These increases were partially offset by a $1.86 million decrease in certificates of deposit account balances.

Shareholders’ Equity

Total shareholders’ equity increased $2.80 million to $99.63 million at December 31, 2016, from $96.83 million at September 30, 2016. The increase in shareholders’ equity was primarily due to net income of $3.15 million for the quarter, which was partially offset by dividend payments of $625,000 to shareholders. For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, book value per share increased $0.37 to $14.32 and tangible book value per share increased $0.38 to $13.51. Timberland did not repurchase shares of its common stock during the quarter and, at December 31, 2016, had 221,893 shares authorized to be purchased in accordance with the terms of its existing stock repurchase plan.

Capital Ratios and Asset Quality

Timberland remains well capitalized with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.39% and a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 10.60%.

There was no provision for loan losses made for the quarters ended December 31, 2016, September 30, 2016, and December 31, 2015. Timberland had a net recovery of $17,000 for the current quarter compared to net charge-offs of $15,000 for the preceding quarter and net charge-offs of $35,000 for the comparable quarter one year ago. The non-performing assets to total assets ratio improved to 0.70% at December 31, 2016, from 0.88% three months earlier and 1.63% one year ago. The allowance for loan losses was 1.45% of loans receivable at December 31, 2016.

Total delinquent loans (past due 30 days or more) and non-accrual loans decreased 25% to $4.06 million at December 31, 2016, from $5.48 million one year ago and increased 17% from $3.47 million at September 30, 2016. Non-accrual loans decreased 51% to $2.36 million at December 31, 2016, from $4.83 million one year ago and decreased 18% from $2.87 million at September 30, 2016.

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. Timberland 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, Timberland provides non-GAAP financial measures for tangible common equity, along with the GAAP measure. Tangible common equity is calculated as shareholders’ equity less goodwill. In addition, tangible assets are total assets less goodwill.

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).
