Washington Banking Company 1Q13 Profits Stable at $4.6 Million; Generates Return on Average Equity of 10.18% and Return on Average Assets of 1.11%

OAK HARBOR, Wash., April 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Washington Banking Company (Nasdaq:WBCO), the holding company for Whidbey Island Bank, today reported it earned $4.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, even with the preceding quarter and down slightly from $4.8 million, or $0.31 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. Continuing improvement in asset quality, solid contribution from mortgage originations and the ongoing shift of deposits into lower cost transaction accounts contributed to first quarter 2013 earnings.

"The residential mortgage market remains healthy, even though activity in the first quarter moderated from the feverish pace set in 2012," said Jack Wagner, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our first quarter loan production was also more moderate than at the end of 2012, with average loans up 1.8% in the quarter and 3.6% year-over-year. At quarter end, the non-covered loan portfolio was down 1.1% in the quarter and up 3.1% from a year ago, reflecting normal payments and amortization of the loan portfolio. Mortgage banking income contributed $1.0 million to first quarter revenues, down from the high point reached in the fourth quarter of $1.2 million and up from $705,000 generated in the first quarter a year ago."

"King and South Snohomish counties continue to lead the recovery in Northwest Washington," said Bryan McDonald, Whidbey Island Bank's President and CEO. "With the addition of our new branch in Woodinville, we have three commercial lending teams operating in this region who are consistently bringing in a higher share of new customers to the bank and the loan pipeline is stronger in this market than elsewhere in our footprint."

First Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights (as of, or for the periods ended March 31, 2013)

  • Return on average assets (annualized) was 1.11% and return on average common equity was 10.18% in 1Q13.
  • On a consolidated basis, Total Risk-Based Capital to risk-adjusted assets was 19.78% compared to 19.94% a year ago. The minimum ratio to be considered well-capitalized under FDIC rules is 10%.
  • Nonperforming non-covered assets/total assets improved to 1.03%, compared to 1.10% in the preceding quarter and 1.42% a year ago. Classified loans declined to $73.9 million at March 31, 2013, from $77.3 million at December 31, 2012.
  • The $1.5 million provision for covered loan losses in the first quarter was mostly offset by a reduction in the change in the FDIC indemnification asset. While the cash flows associated with several acquired loans have deteriorated, the Bank remains covered by the FDIC loss-share agreement for these assets.
  • Tangible book value per common share increased to $11.50, compared to $10.85 a year ago.
  • Low-cost demand, money market, savings and NOW accounts were $1.02 billion, or 70% of total deposits.
  • Loan loss reserves were 2.01% of non-covered loans, and 2.20% a year ago.
  • The interest income generated from the loan portfolios in the FDIC-assisted acquisitions contributed $6.7 million to first quarter revenues.
  • In the first quarter, net interest margin fell 39 basis points to 4.84% compared to 5.23% in the preceding quarter, and fell 97 basis points from 5.81% in the year ago quarter, reflecting declines in both the yields and balances of covered loans.

Regional Economic and Acquisitions Update

"The Washington State economy may be recovering at a faster pace than the nation as a whole, but not without fits and starts," said Wagner. "Employment, housing and retail sales are improving, particularly in the greater Seattle area. In February the state unemployment rate fell to 8.2% (not seasonally adjusted) with King County at 5.6% and Snohomish County at 6.3%. Boeing, Amazon, Microsoft, Costco, Nordstrom, Expeditors, and Starbucks are just a few of the world class companies that are fueling our economic recovery. The region also has almost 62,000 military personnel based in the state. It remains to be seen how deeply the sequestration cuts will impact the state's armed forces."

"Due to some stress in the covered hospitality portfolio, we booked a $1.5 million provision for covered loans in the first quarter, which followed the $2.2 million provision taken in the fourth quarter of 2012 and are the largest such provisions we have taken since the FDIC assisted acquisitions," stated Rick Shields, Chief Financial Officer. "These provisions, however, were offset by significantly lower changes in the FDIC Indemnification Asset line included in noninterest income, which was a cost of $174,000 in the first quarter compared to $228,000 in the fourth quarter and $3.0 million in the first quarter a year ago."

The FDIC indemnification asset carried on the balance sheet declined 19% in the quarter to $28.1 million, and is down 77% from its peak of $124.7 million in the third quarter of 2010. In addition, the clawback adjustment in the first quarter of 2013 was $200,000, compared to $295,000 in the preceding quarter and $40,000 in the first quarter of 2012.

Covered loans, which are loans that are subject to a loss-share arrangement as a result of the two FDIC-assisted acquisitions, are shown as a separate line item on the balance sheet and are not included in the net loan totals. Covered loans are also not included in any of the reported credit quality metrics, as they are accounted for separately under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Both the FDIC indemnification asset and the covered loan portfolio will decline over time, as the loans mature, pay off, or are otherwise resolved. The resolution of the acquired loan portfolios continues to progress, with net covered loans down 9% for the quarter, 23% year-over-year and 57% since acquired.

Credit Quality

"Overall asset quality continued to improve during the first quarter with total nonperforming assets down 29% from a year ago," said Dan Kuenzi, Chief Credit Officer. "Residential construction projects continue to make up the majority of nonperforming loans, particularly in the smaller markets we serve. We are continuing to move delinquent loans through the collection process, and foreclosed on a large development project in Skagit County, which added to the balance of other real estate owned in the quarter."

Nonperforming, non-covered loans (NPL) decreased during the first quarter to $11.8 million from $15.6 million in the fourth quarter and from $22.3 million in the year ago quarter, with residential construction loans accounting for 33% of the nonperforming assets. The ratio of NPLs/total non-covered loans improved to 1.40% at March 31, 2013, from 1.82% at the end of the fourth quarter and 2.73% a year ago. Nonperforming, non-covered assets (NPA)/total assets improved to 1.03% compared to 1.10% in the preceding quarter and 1.42% a year ago. Non-covered other real estate owned (OREO) was $5.3 million, compared to $3.0 million in the preceding quarter and $1.8 million a year ago.

The provision for non-covered loan losses was $450,000 in the first quarter, compared to $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $2.0 million in the first quarter a year ago. The allowance for non-covered loan losses totaled $16.9 million, or 2.01% of non-covered loans. Total net charge-offs in the first quarter were $671,000, or 0.32% of average total loans on an annualized basis, compared to $923,000, or 0.44% of average loans in the preceding quarter and $2.0 million, or 1.01% of average loans, in the first quarter a year ago.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $1.67 billion at March 31, 2013, down slightly from $1.69 billion in the preceding quarter and $1.70 billion a year ago. Total non-covered loans decreased 1.1% to $843.8 million compared to $853.1 million at December 31, 2012, and were up 3.1% from $818.7 million at March 31, 2012. "Our commercial teams are committed to building and maintaining strong relationships with business owners in our communities," said McDonald. "Commercial teams closed $34.1 million in new loans and renewed $47.6 million in commitments in the first quarter, bringing total new and renewed commercial group production to $81.7 million."

The non-covered loan portfolio is well diversified with commercial and industrial loans making up 19% and residential mortgages accounting for 4% of the portfolio. Owner-occupied commercial real estate loans represent approximately 25% of the portfolio and non-owner occupied commercial real estate loans account for approximately 26% of loans. Indirect consumer loans account for 9% of the portfolio and other consumer loans account for 9%. Construction and land development loans for residential properties represent 5% and commercial construction and land development loans represent 3% of the portfolio.

As resolution of the covered portfolio progresses, net covered loans totaled $195.6 million and covered OREO totaled $15.5 million at March 31, 2013, compared to $214.1 million and $13.5 million, respectively, three months earlier.

The mix of total deposits continued to improve with non-CD deposits increasing $489,000 during the quarter, while the level of total deposits was relatively stable at $1.44 billion at March 31, 2013. Noninterest-bearing demand deposits decreased 3% in the quarter and increased 5% year-over-year, representing 18% of total deposits. Year-over-year, NOW accounts increased 18% to $346.5 million, comprising 24% of deposits; time deposits declined 18% to $426.1 million and accounted for 30% of total deposits. Core deposits, excluding time deposits over $100,000, represented 87% of all deposits.

Shareholders' equity increased 1% in the quarter and 6% year-over-year, due to the strong earnings generated during the past twelve months. Tangible shareholder equity totaled $178.4 million, or $11.50 per share at March 31, 2013, compared to $10.85 a year ago.

Operating Results

In the first quarter of 2013, net interest income decreased 8% to $18.2 million from the linked quarter of $19.9 million, and declined 15% from $21.3 million a year ago. The majority of the decline came from the resolution of the covered loan portfolio and a reduction in the yield on covered loans from 14.54% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to 13.16% in the current quarter.

"The complexities of the FDIC assisted accounting items on the income statement make quarterly comparisons difficult, however, these items generally offset each other. The major driver of noninterest income was gains realized from the sale of mortgage loans, which contributed $1.0 million to first quarter revenues and $1.2 million to fourth quarter 2012 revenues," said Shields. "As discussed above, the increase in the provision for covered loan losses resulted in a substantially reduced change in the FDIC indemnification asset in the first quarter of 2012. Consequently, first quarter noninterest income was $4.3 million compared to $4.6 million in the previous quarter and $1.3 million in the year ago quarter. Collections on the covered asset portfolio generated $380,000 in gains on disposition of those assets, compared to $567,000 in the linked quarter and $629,000 in the first quarter a year ago."

Gains on sale of investment securities contributed $265,000 in the first quarter and $244,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $342,000 in the first quarter of 2012.

Washington Banking's net interest margin decreased 39 basis points from the preceding quarter to 4.84% from 5.23% and fell 97 basis points from 5.81% in the year ago quarter. "We have noted in the past few quarters that we anticipate the net interest margin will decline as the contribution from the covered loan portfolio shrinks," Shields noted. "This quarter the decline was more dramatic because the estimated remaining cash flows decreased in the covered portfolio. Our net interest margin from the non-covered loan portfolio is relatively stable, and we anticipate our net interest margin will continue to compress this year, although not as dramatically as it did in the first quarter."

Operating expense continued to be stable at $13.9 million in the first quarter, reflecting higher compensation expenses from a year ago and lower FDIC premiums.

In a separate release today, Washington Banking announced it will pay a quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per common share. "In keeping with our two-tiered approach in determining our dividend payouts each quarter, we are increasing our basic dividend amount to $0.07 plus $0.08 per share in the variable dividend, which results in the total dividend at 50% of earnings," Wagner noted. "Our board will continue to evaluate dividends each quarter based on capital requirements, market opportunities and other operating considerations."

Fully tax-equivalent net interest income and fully tax-equivalent net interest margin are non-GAAP performance measurements that management believes provides investors with a more accurate picture of the Company's operational performance and is consistent with industry practice. The calculation involves grossing up interest income on tax-exempt loans and investments by an amount that makes it comparable to taxable income.
The following table provides the reconciliation of the Company's net interest income and net interest margin (GAAP) to a fully tax-equivalent net interest income and fully tax-equivalent net interest margin (non-GAAP) for the periods presented:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Tangible common equity, tangible assets and tangible book value per common share are not measures that are calculated in accordance with GAAP. However, management uses these non-GAAP measures in its analysis of the Company's performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures are an important indication of the Company's ability to grow both organically and through business combinations, and, with respect to tangible common equity, the Company's ability to pay dividends and to engage in various capital management strategies.
Neither tangible common equity, tangible assets or tangible book value per common share should be considered in isolation or as a substitute for common shareholders' equity or book value per common share or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which the Company calculates tangible common equity, tangible assets and tangible book value per share may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names.
The following table provides the reconciliation of the Company's shareholders' equity (GAAP) to tangible common equity (non-GAAP) and total assets (GAAP) to tangible assets (non-GAAP) for the periods presented:
