HONOLULU, Jan. 26, 2017 (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 $4.36 million or $0.46 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $3.70 million or $0.40 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2015.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved an increase in the quarterly cash dividend from $0.18 per share to $0.20 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on February 23, 2017 to stockholders of record as of February 9, 2017.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Hawaii’s strong economy has allowed us to increase the size of our loan portfolio by originating new mortgage loans, although rising interest rates may have an impact on loan volume. The growth in our loan portfolio has increased our net income and improved our performance ratios. We also increased our deposit base and look forward to opening our newest branch soon, which will be located in the rapidly growing Ala Moana area. With our strong performance, we are pleased to announce an 11.11% increase in our quarterly cash dividend from $0.18 per share to $0.20 per share. This is our 29th consecutive quarterly dividend and will be paid on February 23, 2017.”

Interest Income

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased to $14.34 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 from $14.32 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Total interest income was $16.48 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 compared to $16.22 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The $258,000 growth in interest income was primarily due to a $966,000 increase in interest earned on loans which resulted primarily from the $147.34 million increase in loans receivable. The increase in interest income on loans was offset by a $734,000 decline in interest income from investment securities due to an $85.40 million decrease in our investment securities portfolio that occurred as repayments and sales exceeded securities purchased. We used the cash from security repayments and sales to fund loan originations.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense increased to $2.05 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 from $1.82 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Total interest expense on deposits increased to $1.57 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 from $1.34 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015 due to a $48.10 million increase in total deposits and an increase in the average cost of deposits. During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the provision for loan losses was $91,000 compared to $89,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $1.07 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 compared to $1.23 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to a $105,000 decrease in the gain on sale of investment securities and a $46,000 decline in service fees on loan and deposit accounts.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $8.19 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 compared to $9.39 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The decrease in noninterest expense was primarily due to a $1.09 million decrease in salaries and employee benefits, which resulted from a decrease in share-based compensation, an increase in the capitalized cost of new loan originations and a decrease in year-end incentive compensation accruals. The reduction in the costs of the share-based compensation plans occurred as the 2010 equity incentive plan became fully vested during the year. In addition, the origination of new mortgage loans in 2016 increased capitalized loan costs and decreased salary expense. As new loans are originated, the Bank capitalizes the cost of new loan originations as part of the loan balance and reduces the salary expense attributable to such originations.

Year Ended December 31, 2016 Results

Net income for 2016 was $16.35 million compared to $14.75 million in 2015, an increase of 10.84%. The growth in net income can be attributed primarily to higher net interest income and lower noninterest expense which was partially offset by a decrease in noninterest income and an increase in income taxes.

For the year ended December 31, 2016, net interest income was $58.23 million compared to $56.58 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. Total interest income increased to $66.07 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 from $63.09 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. Interest income on loans grew by $5.27 million, or 11.47%, to $51.17 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, primarily because of a $147.34 million increase in the loan portfolio. This increase was offset by a reduction of $2.51 million in interest earned on investment securities which occurred due to an $85.40 million reduction in our investment securities as security repayments and sales exceeded purchases. The cash received from security repayments and sales was used to fund loan originations. Total interest expense increased to $7.84 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 from $6.52 million for the year ended December 31, 2015, primarily due to increases in interest paid on deposits and Federal Home Loan Bank advances. Interest expense on deposits rose by $1.11 million to $5.93 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 primarily because of a $48.01 million growth in deposits. Interest expense on FHLB advances grew by $338,000 to $1.04 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 because of an increase in the average cost of advances. The increase in interest expense on deposits and FHLB advances were partially offset by a $121,000 decrease in interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase that occurred because of a decrease in the average cost of these borrowings. Provision for loan losses decreased to $310,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to $455,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015 primarily because of a decrease in the amount of non-performing assets and relatively low levels of loan losses.

Noninterest income was $4.09 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to $4.91 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. This decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to a $331,000 reduction in the gain on sale of investment securities and a $201,000 decrease in fees on loans and deposit accounts.

Noninterest expense was $34.88 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to $36.50 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The decrease in noninterest expense was primarily due to a $906,000 decrease in salaries and employee benefits, which resulted from a decrease in share-based compensation, an increase in the capitalized cost of new loan originations and a decrease in year-end incentive compensation accruals. The reduction in the costs of the share-based compensation plans occurred as the 2010 equity incentive plan became fully vested during the year. In addition, the origination of new mortgage loans in 2016 increased capitalized loan costs and decreased salary expense. As new loans are originated, the Bank capitalizes the cost of new loan originations and reduces the salary expense attributable to such originations. Equipment expenses were $3.57 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to $3.89 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The $328,000 decrease in equipment expenses is primarily due to declines in data processing, equipment rental and depreciation expenses.

Assets and Equity

Total assets increased to $1.878 billion at December 31, 2016 from $1.821 billion at December 31, 2015. Loans receivable grew by $147.3 million or 12.40% to $1.336 billion at December 31, 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 $48.01 million increase in deposits and $85.40 million received from the net repayments and sales of investment securities. Deposits increased by 3.33% to $1.493 billion at December 31, 2016 from $1.445 billion at December 31, 2015. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $229.79 million at December 31, 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

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company did not repurchase any shares under its previously announced seventh repurchase program, which permits the repurchase 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 the 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 continue to limit the Company’s repurchasing of shares. The Company will continue to 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 $1.40 million (7 loans) at December 31, 2016, compared to $1.63 million (7 loans) at December 31, 2015. Non-performing assets totaled $4.56 million at December 31, 2016 compared to $5.42 million at December 31, 2015. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets decreased to 0.24% at December 31, 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 December 31, 2016 was $2.45 million and represented 0.18% of total loans compared to $2.17 million and 0.18% of total loans as of December 31, 2015.
