Loans receivable, net increased $91.3 million to $709.1 million at June 30, 2017, from $617.8 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $159.0 million from $550.1 million at June 30, 2016. The increase in loans receivable, net quarter over sequential quarter was primarily a result of increases in real estate loans and commercial business loans. Total growth in real estate loans of $39.7 million during the current quarter, included $7.3 million of purchased commercial and multi-family real estate loans. Overall real estate loan increases included construction and development loans of $15.2 million, one-to-four-family loans of $13.5 million, and multi-family loans of $6.0 million. Quarter over sequential quarter changes in commercial business lending included a $38.2 million increase in commercial business loans, of which $16.5 million was associated with the purchase of the guaranteed portion of U.S. Small Business Association/USDA loans. Growth in consumer lending was $12.4 million quarter over sequential quarter and reflects growth in the Bank’s long established indirect fixture lending platform.

One-to-four-family loans originated through the home lending segment which includes loans HFS, loans held for investment, fixed seconds, and loans brokered to other institutions increased $74.2 million, or 52.1%, to $216.8 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to $142.6 million for the preceding quarter, and $211.9 million for the same quarter one year ago. Originations of one-to-four-family loans to purchase a home (purchase production) increased by $24.1 million, or 9.5% with $278.6 million in loan purchase production closing during the six months ended June 30, 2017, up from $254.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. One-to-four-family loan originations for refinance (refinance production) decreased $26.4 million, or 25.2% with $78.2 million in refinance production closing during the six months ended June 30, 2017, down from $104.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company sold $171.0 million of one-to-four-family loans, compared to sales of $136.4 million for the preceding quarter, and sales of $193.4 million for the same quarter one year ago.

Purchase production was 81.1% of the total one-to-four-family loan originations versus 18.9% for refinance production during the second quarter of 2017, compared to 75.9% in purchase production versus 24.1% in refinance production during the same period 2016. Purchase production for the first half of 2017 was 78.1% of the total one-to-four-family loan originations versus 21.9% for refinance production, compared to 70.9% in purchase volume versus 29.1% in refinances for the first half of 2016. The increase in originations and purchase activity was primarily associated with the strong home purchase demand in the Pacific Northwest.

The allowance for loan losses (“ALLL”) was unchanged at $10.1 million, or 1.4%, and 1.6% of gross loans receivable, excluding loans HFS, at June 30, 2017 and March 31, 2017, respectively, and increased from $9.0 million, or 1.6% of gross loans receivable, excluding loans HFS, at June 30, 2016. Non-performing loans, consisting of non-accrual loans, decreased to $754,000 at June 30, 2017, from $790,000 at March 31, 2017, and $620,000 at June 30, 2016. Substandard loans increased slightly to $8.5 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $8.4 million at March 31, 2017, and increased from $3.1 million at June 30, 2016. The $5.4 million increase in substandard loans from one year ago was primarily due to a $4.6 million commercial business relationship consisting of two lines of credit and one commercial non-real estate loan, of which all were paid current at June 30, 2017, yet have been downgraded as a result of a weakened financial condition of the borrower. There was no other real estate owned (“OREO”) at June 30, 2017, at March 31, 2017, or at June 30, 2016.

The Company sold $29.8 million of securities available-for-sale during the second quarter of 2017 realizing a gain of $237,000. Those sales primarily provided additional funds for loan growth during the quarter. In addition, the sales of lower coupon investments enabled us to capitalize on the lower Treasury rates for a gain during the second quarter of 2017. The average yield on those sold securities available-for-sale during the quarter was 2.1% with the intent of reinvesting funds received in higher yielding loans through the second half of 2017.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company sold a portion of the MSA with a book value of $4.8 million and generated an associated gain of $958,000. Under regulatory capital guidelines, MSAs are limited to 10% of the Bank’s common equity Tier 1 capital. MSAs in excess of the 10% threshold must be deducted from common equity for regulatory capital purposes. The sale of this asset allows the Bank to remain below the maximum 10% regulatory capital limitation with the expectation that continued MSAs will be generated from future loan sales.

Total deposits increased $27.7 million, to $785.7 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $758.0 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $119.6 million, from $666.1 million at June 30, 2016. Relationship-based transactional deposits increased $25.1 million, to $258.8 million at June 30, 2017, from $233.6 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $51.2 million, from $207.5 million at June 30, 2016. Money market and savings accounts increased $9.9 million, to $335.6 million at June 30, 2017, from $325.7 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $52.8 million, from $282.8 million at June 30, 2016, partially due to the establishment of a new wholesale money market relationship this quarter that added $20.0 million in money market accounts. Time deposits decreased $7.3 million, to $191.4 million at June 30, 2017, from $198.7 million at March 31, 2017, due to the maturity of certificates of deposit generated from a previous 30-month certificates of deposit campaign, and increased $15.6 million, from $175.8 million at June 30, 2016. Non-retail certificates of deposit which includes brokered certificates of deposit, online certificates of deposit, and public funds decreased $551,000 to $54.7 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $55.2 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $16.1 million from $38.6 million at June 30, 2016. Management remains focused on growth in lower cost relationship-based deposits.

At June 30, 2017, borrowings increased $20.4 million, or 198.7%, to $30.7 million, from $10.3 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $11.0 million, or 55.9%, from $19.7 million at June 30, 2016, as the Company’s usage of Federal Home Loan Bank Fed Funds and advances was increased, primarily to partially fund strong loan demand in the second quarter.

Total stockholders’ equity increased $4.9 million, to $88.8 million at June 30, 2017, from $84.0 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $12.8 million, from $76.1 million at June 30, 2016. The increase in stockholders’ equity from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to net income of $4.4 million, and a $343,000 reduction in other comprehensive loss, net of tax to $87,000 at June 30, 2017, compared to $430,000 at March 31, 2017, representing a lower level of unrealized losses in our investment portfolio. Book value per common share was $30.40 at June 30, 2017, compared to $29.21 at March 31, 2017, and $26.73 at June 30, 2016.

The Bank is well capitalized under the minimum capital requirements established by the FDIC with a total risk-based capital ratio of 13.2%, a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 10.1%, and a common equity Tier 1 (“CET1”) capital ratio of 12.0% at June 30, 2017. At June 30, 2016, the total risk-based capital ratio was 14.0%, the Tier 1 leverage capital ratio was 10.1%, and the CET1 capital ratio was 12.8%.

The Company exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with a total risk-based capital ratio of 12.5%, a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 9.5%, and a CET1 ratio of 11.2% at June 30, 2017, compared to 12.8%, 9.1%, and 11.5% at June 30, 2016, respectively.

Operating Results

Net interest income increased $1.9 million, or 23.2%, to $10.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, from $8.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016, primarily due to a $1.9 million, or 23.1% increase in loans receivable interest income. Net interest income increased $3.0 million, to $18.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, from $15.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016, primarily due to a $3.0 million, or 17.9% increase in loans receivable interest income.

The net interest margin (“NIM”) increased 29 basis points to 4.63% for the three months ended June 30, 2017, from 4.34% for the same period in the prior year, and increased 33 basis points to 4.59% for the six months ended June 30, 2017, from 4.26% for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increased NIM reflects growth in higher yielding loans, compared to short-term investments and cash. The average cost of funds increased 16 basis points to 0.73% for the three months ended June 30, 2017, from 0.57% for the three months ended June 30, 2016, and increased 13 basis points to 0.73% for the six months ended June 30, 2017, from 0.60% for the six months ended June 30, 2016, due in part to repricing on certificates of deposit and the increased cost of new funds to support loan growth in a rising interest rate environment. Management remains focused on matching deposit duration with the duration of earning assets where appropriate.

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, no provision for loan losses was recorded, compared to $600,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016, primarily due to our low level of net charge-offs. The lack of a provision for loan losses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 was a result of the low level of charge-offs and the low level of delinquent, nonperforming and classified loans, as well as the increasing percentage of real estate loans and improving real estate values in our market areas. During the three months ended June 30, 2017, net charge-offs totaled $4,000 compared to net recoveries of $24,000 during the three months ended June 30, 2016. No provision for loan losses was recorded for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Net charge-offs totaled $68,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $34,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Noninterest income increased $401,000, or 6.1%, to $7.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, from $6.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase during the period was primarily due to a $958,000 increase in gain on sale of the MSA, a $237,000 increase in gain on sale of investment securities, a $110,000 increase in service charges and fee income primarily due to loan and deposit growth, and a $72,000, or 46.2% increase in other noninterest income, primarily offset by a $977,000 decrease in gain on sale of loans, primarily due to an overall reduction of gain on sale margins to remain competitive in the local housing purchase market. Noninterest income increased $1.5 million, or 13.8%, to $12.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, from $10.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increase during the period was primarily due to a $958,000 increase in gain on sale of the MSA, a $274,000 increase in service charges and fee income, primarily due to loan and deposit growth, and a $237,000 increase in gain on sale of investment securities.

Noninterest expense increased $1.3 million, or 13.9%, to $10.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, from $9.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily a result of a $1.6 million, or 29.1% increase in salaries and benefits, which included $799,000 in incentives and commissions for the loan production staff associated with continued strong loan production and Company growth, partially offset by a $214,000, or 99.5% decrease in impairment of mortgage servicing rights, and a $122,000 decrease in professional and board fees. Noninterest expense increased $2.8 million, or 15.1%, to $21.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, from $18.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily a result of a $2.8 million, or 27.5% increase in salaries and benefits, which included $894,000 in incentives and commissions for the loan production staff, a $178,000 increase in loan costs, a $158,000 increase in operations costs, a $121,000 increase in data processing, and a $111,000 increase in occupancy expense, partially offset by a $389,000, or 100.0% decrease in acquisition costs, and a $213,000, or 99.5% decrease in impairment of mortgage servicing rights.

Tangible book value per share using outstanding common shares excludes intangible assets. This ratio represents a non-
GAAP financial measure. See also non-GAAP financial measures reconciliation in the table below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles utilized in the United States (“GAAP”), this earnings release contains the tangible book value per share, a non-GAAP financial measure. Tangible common stockholders’ equity is calculated by excluding intangible assets from stockholders’ equity. For this financial measure, the Company’s intangible assets are goodwill and core deposit intangible. Tangible book value per share is calculated by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity by the number of common shares outstanding. The Company believes that this measure is consistent with the capital treatment by our bank regulatory agencies, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios and presents this measure to facilitate comparison of the quality and composition of the Company's capital over time and in comparison to its competitors.

Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied, and are not audited. Further, this non-GAAP financial measure of tangible book value per share should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for book value per share or total stockholders' equity determined in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies.

Reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measure is presented below.
