Balance Sheet and Credit Quality

Total assets increased $65.3 million, or 7.0%, to $993.9 million at September 30, 2017, compared to $928.6 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $166.4 million, or 20.1%, from $827.5 million at September 30, 2016.

The year over sequential year increase of $166.4 million in total assets included increases in loans receivable, net of $161.1 million, total cash and cash equivalents of $14.8 million, certificates of deposit at other financial institutions of $4.1 million, other assets of $1.1 million, and FHLB stock of $1.0 million, partially offset by a decrease in loans HFS of $12.1 million, securities AFS of $2.7 million, and servicing rights of $1.8 million. The increases in assets were primarily funded by cash received from growth in deposits and net proceeds from the capital raise.

Loans receivable, net increased $44.8 million to $753.9 million at September 30, 2017, from $709.1 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $161.1 million from $592.8 million at September 30, 2016. The increase in loans receivable, net quarter over sequential quarter was primarily a result of increases in real estate and consumer loans. Total real estate loans increased $32.5 million including increases in one-to-four-family loans of $15.4 million, construction and development loans of $10.0 million, commercial loans of $5.2 million, and home equity loans of $1.6 million. Total consumer loans increased $10.9 million primarily from growth of $6.5 million in indirect home improvement loans and $2.9 million in marine loans. Quarter over sequential quarter increase in commercial business lending of $1.8 million included a transfer of $1.9 million in substandard shared national credits to loans HFS which will be sold at a slight discount to market recorded against the allowance for loan and lease losses (“ALLL”) in the third quarter of 2017, settlement will occur early in the fourth quarter of 2017.

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 $27.3 million, or 12.6%, to $244.1 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to $216.8 million for the preceding quarter, and $232.9 million for the same quarter one year ago. Originations of one-to-four-family loans to purchase a home (purchase production) increased by $68.0 million, or 17.2% with $464.3 million in loan purchase production closing during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, up from $396.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. One-to-four-family loan originations for refinance (refinance production) decreased $58.9 million, or 30.1% with $136.6 million in refinance production closing during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, down from $195.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, the Company sold $204.3 million of one-to-four-family loans, compared to sales of $171.0 million for the preceding quarter, and sales of $205.1 million for the same quarter one year ago.

Purchase production was 76.1% of the total one-to-four-family loan originations versus 23.9% for refinance production during the third quarter of 2017, compared to 60.9% in purchase production versus 39.1% in refinance production during the same period in 2016. Purchase production for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was 77.3% of the total one-to-four-family loan originations versus 22.7% for refinance production, compared to 67.0% in purchase volume versus 33.0% in refinances for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The increase in originations and purchase activity was primarily associated with the strong home purchase demand in the Pacific Northwest while the decline in refinance activity reflects the rise in mortgage interest rates over the last year.

The ALLL at September 30, 2017 increased to $10.6 million, or 1.4% of gross loans receivable, excluding loans HFS, compared to $10.1 million, or 1.4% of gross loans receivable, excluding loans HFS at June 30, 2017, and $9.6 million, or 1.6% of gross loans receivable, excluding loans HFS, at September 30, 2016. Non-performing loans, consisting of non-accrual loans, increased to $1.3 million at September 30, 2017, from $754,000 at June 30, 2017, and $594,000 at September 30, 2016. Substandard loans decreased to $6.6 million at September 30, 2017, compared to $8.5 million at June 30, 2017, and increased from $3.7 million at September 30, 2016. The $2.9 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 current at September 30, 2017, yet have been downgraded as a result of a weakened financial condition of the borrower. Quarter over sequential quarter substandard loans declined due to the transfer of the $1.9 million shared national credit discussed above to loans HFS. There was no other real estate owned (“OREO”) at September 30, 2017, at June 30, 2017, or at September 30, 2016.

The Company sold $9.0 million of securities AFS during the third quarter of 2017 realizing a gain of $143,000. Those sales primarily provided additional funds for loan growth during the quarter. In addition, those sales of low coupon investments enabled us to capitalize on the lower Treasury rates for the gain realized during the third quarter of 2017. The average yield on sold securities AFS during the quarter was 2.48%.

During the third quarter of 2017, the Company raised gross proceeds of $27.6 million from an underwritten public offering for the sale of 587,234 shares of its common stock, with the net proceeds after underwriting fees and costs of approximately $25.6 million. Capital proceeds received from the offering were used to fund the majority of a $26.0 million contribution to the Bank at the end of the third quarter 2017 to provide additional capital for growth planned over the next 24 months. Management expects continued lending growth due to strong economic factors in the Pacific Northwest and, specifically, the communities we serve.

Total deposits increased $54.9 million, to $840.6 million at September 30, 2017, compared to $785.7 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $137.4 million, from $703.2 million at September 30, 2016. Relationship-based transactional deposits increased $24.0 million, to $282.7 million at September 30, 2017, from $258.8 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $66.0 million, from $216.8 million at September 30, 2016. Money market and savings accounts decreased $26.6 million, to $309.0 million at September 30, 2017, from $335.6 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $20.3 million, from $288.7 million at September 30, 2016. Time deposits increased $57.5 million, to $248.8 million at September 30, 2017, from $191.4 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $51.1 million, from $197.7 million at September 30, 2016. Non-retail certificates of deposit which includes brokered certificates of deposit, online certificates of deposit, and public funds increased $45.0 million to $99.7 million at September 30, 2017, compared to $54.7 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $39.2 million from $60.5 million at September 30, 2016. Wholesale funding (brokered deposits) were utilized to bridge short-term asset growth such as loans HFS and pay down higher cost short-term FHLB Fed Funds advances. Management remains focused on growth in lower cost relationship-based deposits to fund long term asset growth.

At September 30, 2017, borrowings decreased $20.4 million, or 66.5%, to $10.3 million, from $30.7 million at June 30, 2017, and decreased $10.8 million, or 51.2%, from $21.0 million at September 30, 2016, primarily due to the repayment of FHLB Fed Funds advances utilizing a portion of the excess liquidity provided by the increase in deposits and proceeds from the capital raise in September 2017.

Total stockholders’ equity increased $29.4 million, to $118.2 million at September 30, 2017, from $88.8 million at June 30, 2017, and increased $38.7 million, from $79.6 million at September 30, 2016. The increase in stockholders’ equity from the second quarter of 2017 was primarily due to the net proceeds of $25.6 million received from the capital raise and net income of $3.5 million. Book value per common share was $33.52 at September 30, 2017, compared to $30.40 at June 30, 2017, and $27.89 at September 30, 2016.

The Bank is well capitalized under the minimum capital requirements established by the FDIC with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.1%, a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 12.5%, and a common equity Tier 1 (“CET1”) capital ratio of 14.9% at September 30, 2017. At September 30, 2016, the total risk-based capital ratio was 13.5%, the Tier 1 leverage capital ratio was 10.3%, and the CET1 capital ratio was 12.2%.

Operating Results

Net interest income increased $2.3 million, or 26.0%, to $11.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, from $8.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, primarily due to a $2.5 million, or 26.8% increase in loans receivable interest income. Net interest income increased $5.3 million, or 21.5% to $30.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, from $24.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, primarily due to a $5.5 million, or 21.0% increase in loans receivable interest income.

The net interest margin (“NIM”) increased 15 basis points to 4.70% for the three months ended September 30, 2017, from 4.55% for the same period in the prior year, and increased 27 basis points to 4.63% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, from 4.36% for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The increased NIM reflects growth in higher yielding loans, compared to short-term investments and cash. The average cost of funds increased four basis points to 0.61% for the three months ended September 30, 2017, from 0.57% for the three months ended September 30, 2016, and was unchanged at 0.59% for both the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016. Management remains focused on matching deposit duration with the duration of earning assets where appropriate.

For the three months ended September 30, 2017, the provision for loan losses was $450,000, compared to $600,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2016. During the three months ended September 30, 2017, net recoveries totaled $5,000 compared to net recoveries of $35,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2016. The provision for loan losses was $450,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $1.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Net charge-offs totaled $63,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to net recoveries of $1,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The decrease in the provision for loan losses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 was primarily 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.

Noninterest income decreased $821,000, or 11.3%, to $6.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, from $7.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. The decrease during the period was due to an $897,000 reduction in gain on sale of loans, primarily associated with a decrease in the volume of loans/locks fair valued, and a reduction of gain on sale margins associated with the product mix in the Pacific Northwest, partially offset by a $64,000 increase in other noninterest income. Noninterest income increased $679,000, or 3.7%, to $18.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, from $18.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The increase during the period was primarily due to increases in gain on sale of servicing rights of $996,000, service charges and fee income of $254,000, and gain on sale of investment securities of $234,000, primarily offset by a decrease in gain on sale of loans of $882,000.

Noninterest expense increased $1.3 million, or 12.4%, to $11.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, from $10.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily a result of a $853,000 increase in salaries and benefits, which included $42,000 in incentives and commissions for the loan production staff associated with continued strong loan production growth, a $216,000 decrease in recovery of mortgage servicing rights, a $127,000 increase in operations, and a $114,000 increase in data processing, partially offset by a $124,000 decrease in professional and board fees. Noninterest expense increased $4.1 million, or 14.1%, to $32.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, from $28.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily a result of a $3.7 million increase in salaries and benefits, which included $935,000 in incentives and commissions for the loan production staff, a $285,000 increase in operations, a $235,000 increase in data processing, a $188,000 increase in loan costs, and a $164,000 increase in occupancy expense, partially offset by a $389,000 decrease in acquisition costs and a $229,000 decrease in professional and board fees.

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.
