Rockville Financial, Inc. Logo

ROCKVILLE, Conn., April 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rockville Financial, Inc. ("Rockville Financial" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:RCKB), the holding company for Rockville Bank (the "Bank"), today announced net income of $4.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, compared to net income of $3.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

"I am pleased to announce that Rockville Financial, Inc. reported record first quarter earnings resulting in a 31% increase in earnings per share over the first quarter of 2012. The quarter included strong residential mortgage originations (up 74% versus the total U.S. lenders up 29% as reported by the Mortgage Bankers Association), solid execution on loan sales, stable expense management and continued superior asset quality," stated William H. W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rockville Financial, Inc. and Rockville Bank.

"The Company's record quarterly results include the impact of the net interest margin decline attributable to decreased yields on loans and securities in the continued low interest rate environment. Offsetting the margin decline is the 4% increase in average earning assets for the quarter. I am proud of our team's accomplishment of producing yet another quarter of record profits in a tough operating environment. I would like to thank our employees for their continued commitment to delivering superior customer service, which is the driver to our success every day."

Earnings in both years were affected by non-core income and expense. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures may be found on page F-7.

Operating Results

Rockville Financial reported record first quarter earnings, and achieved these results despite the downward pressure on net interest income and the net interest margin in the continued low interest rate environment and difficult operating environment that all banks are facing in 2013.

The Company's total operating revenue decreased by 4% in the first quarter compared to the linked quarter due primarily to the $1.0 million payment the Company received from its data processing vendor in the fourth quarter of 2012 in relation to the service disruptions our customers experienced when the vendor's operations center was impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Core operating revenue, however, increased by 2% compared to the linked quarter. On a year-over-year basis total revenue increased by 14% in the first quarter and core operating revenue increased by 13%. In comparison to both the linked quarter and the prior year period, the increase in core operating revenue reflects the expansion of the Company's mortgage banking business in 2012. The Company sold residential mortgage loans totaling $63 million in the first quarter of 2013 and reported net gains on sales of $2.1 million, compared to $47 million sold in the fourth quarter of 2012 with net gains on sales of $1.3 million, and $18 million sold in the first quarter of 2012 with net gains on sales of $525,000. Additionally, effective January 1, 2013, the Company changed its accounting for Mortgage Servicing Rights ("MSR") whereby it is carrying the MSR using a fair value approach versus the previous lower of amortized cost or fair value approach. Included in the service charges and fee income in the first quarter of 2013 was an additional $273,000 related to this accounting change.

Operating revenue driven by the Company's investment subsidiary, Rockville Financial Services ("RFS"), increased $39,000, or 37%, from the linked quarter. While not a significant component to the quarter's results, noteworthy is the evolution of this business line over the past two quarters and the reporting of two consecutive quarters of 37% increases in fee income from this source. At quarter-end, this division was comprised of five very experienced full-time financial advisors and one full-time sales assistant, all but one of whom joined the Company in the fourth quarter of 2012. The Company has recently re-aligned its advisor territories to better serve its existing RFS clients. The new West Hartford Banking Center includes a dedicated full-time financial advisor who is a Certified Financial Planner.

Net interest income decreased by $520,000 to $16.5 million in the first quarter compared to the linked quarter; $337,000 of which was attributable to the decline in commercial loan prepayment fees over the linked quarter. Average earning assets increased by $73 million, or 4%, due to continued business development resulting in commercial loan growth and strategic decisions to increase available for sale investment purchases. The tax equivalent net interest margin for the first quarter of 2013 was compressed by 26 basis points to 3.48%, compared to 3.74% for the fourth quarter of 2012 as a result of the 29 basis points decline in the tax equivalent yield on interest-earning assets outpacing the 6 basis points decline in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities.

The reduction in the average yield during the first quarter as compared to the prior quarter was primarily attributable to the impact that the extended low interest rate environment had on yields of strong fourth quarter commercial loan originations; lower yields on first quarter available for sale security purchases, many of which were variable rate securities; and a linked-quarter reduction of prepayment penalty revenue recognized in the net interest margin. Of the 26 basis points total net interest margin compression, 7 basis points was generated by the decline in prepayment penalty revenue. Residential loans, representing 34% of interest-earning assets, experienced a decline in yield due to the Company's secondary marketing strategy of selling the majority of new originations, resulting in a decline in average balances of legacy higher yielding loans due to prepayment and scheduled amortization.

The cost of interest-bearing deposits decreased across all comparable periods as a result of the Company's continued focus on growing low cost core deposits, particularly with the commercial banking expansion, and on reducing the cost of funds. The Company's strategic decision to take steps to shorten the duration of earning assets during the quarter while incrementally extending funding will better position the balance sheet for rising interest rates and enhance its long-term earnings but will modestly adversely impact short-term earnings.

The first quarter provision for loan losses decreased $313,000, or 44%, to $391,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $704,000 for the comparable 2012 period due to the stable balance in the loan portfolio during this time period. Net charge-offs for the first quarter were $331,000, or 0.08% annualized as a percentage of average loans outstanding, an increase from $202,000, or 0.05% annualized as a percentage of average loans outstanding, in the prior year period. Provision expense continues to be assessed in correlation to the Company's loan growth and risk profile.

On a linked quarter basis, non-interest expense decreased $358,000 to $14.7 million, primarily attributable to the $607,000, or 7%, decline in salaries and benefits expense. While $461,000 of the decline in salaries and benefits expense is due to the fourth quarter Hurricane Sandy expenses, other key factors in the linked quarter expense decline are the hard freezing of the Company's pension plan and the conclusion of temporary help contracts, partially offset by increased ESOP expense and the increase in commissions and incentive expense related to strong loan originations. FTE increased slightly to 335 at March 31, 2013 from 331 at December 31, 2012 supporting expansion in revenue driving divisions. The first quarter 2013 non-interest expense as a percentage of average assets and the efficiency ratio were 2.87% and 68.58%, respectively. The Company continues to evaluate cost saving efficiencies.

Mortgage Loan Originations and Commercial Banking Strong; Deposit Growth Continues and Private Banking Introduced

Expansion of the mortgage banking division in 2012 continues to be a significant driver in the Company's results. Rockville introduced mortgage loan officers ("MLOs") into its mortgage banking business model in 2012 with the hiring of twelve MLOs during the course of the year, and added to that team with two additional MLOs hired during the first quarter of 2013. Rockville also announced that Brandon Lorey joined the Company during the first quarter as Senior Vice President and Head of Consumer Lending. Most recently, Lorey held the position of Chief Credit and Lending Officer for H&R Block Bank in Kansas City where he led the company's loan origination and credit administration, and managed the existing legacy portfolio left by prior management, rebuilding it from a point of severe delinquency to an income producing segment of that bank.

The Company further enhanced its mortgage banking model in the first quarter by launching an online mortgage loan application solution, which will assist in making the application process more efficient and added a new high-tech strategy to the Company's mortgage banking operations. As a result of the mortgage banking expansion and enhancements, the Company reported a 74% increase in first quarter originations over the prior year, significantly outpacing the 29% national increase in first quarter originations as reported by the Mortgage Bankers Association. During the first quarter of 2013 the Company originated residential mortgages totaling $75 million, an increase of 74% from $43 million in the first quarter of 2012. Additionally, the transition to mortgage loan officers in the business model has allowed the Company to foster relationships with local realtors to target purchase mortgage production and decrease reliance on the refinance business, thereby increasing purchase mortgage originations by 57% to $16 million in the first quarter of 2013 from $10 million in the first quarter of 2012. On a linked quarter basis, mortgage originations declined by $12 million, or 14%, which is due to typical seasonality in this business.

Net loans decreased by $32 million, or 2%, during the quarter, of which $26 million is attributable to the residential mortgage portfolio where the Company continues to sell fixed rate loans to the secondary market to mitigate interest rate risk. The Company sold $63 million of residential mortgage loans in the first quarter of 2013. The impact results in a minimally liability sensitive interest rate risk position, and selling mortgages is a key driving factor.

Over the linked quarter, the average balance of commercial real estate loans grew by $52 million, or 32% on an annualized basis, and the average balance of C&I loans grew by $5 million. The Company reported 27% annualized linked quarter commercial loan growth in the fourth quarter of 2012. At March 31, 2013, commercial loans totaled $908 million and had decreased by $7 million, or 0.8%, during the first quarter, comprised of an $8 million increase in the commercial real estate portfolio being more than offset by a $10 million decrease in the commercial business portfolio and a $5 million decrease in the commercial construction portfolio. The commercial pipeline is strong and the decrease in the quarter ending balance of commercial loans is due in part to the payoff of $10 million of timeshare loans and the seasonality of this business line, but also due to the Company's disciplined approach to asset quality standards and satisfactory return on capital guidelines. Commercial banking grew deposits by $8 million over the quarter to 13.6% of total deposits.

The Company will continue to develop its recently introduced private banking business led by our new team member, Valerie Duncan. Valerie joined the Company on April 1, 2013 as Senior Vice President, Head of Private Banking and joins us from Wells Fargo Private Bank where she was a Vice President and private banker for their Northeast region. We look forward to the opportunities that Valerie and her team of private bankers will bring to the Company by way of increased relationships with high net worth individuals, professionals and business owners.

The available for sale securities portfolio increased $71 million to $313 million at March 31, 2013 from $241 million at December 31, 2012, largely from purchases of A or better rated government sponsored commercial mortgage-backed securities and adjustable rate collateralized loan obligations. Collateralized loan obligations were 14% of the investment portfolio as of March 31, 2013, and were purchased due to the Company's strategy to opportunistically increase variable rate or short duration assets that have a favorable risk adjusted return on capital. As a result of municipal bond and bank-owned life insurance purchases during the first half of 2012, the Company's effective tax rate decreased to 28.1% in the first quarter of 2013 from 29.6% in 2012.

Deposits totaled $1.55 billion at March 31, 2013 and increased $42 million from $1.51 billion at December 31, 2012, reflecting a $55 million, or 4%, increase in interest bearing deposits and a $13 million, or 5%, decrease in non-interest bearing deposits. Deposit growth was enhanced in the first quarter by the opening of the West Hartford Banking Center, which is reporting growth ahead of expectations. The new full-service West Hartford "Banking Center" offers traditional banking services along with onsite specialized mortgage professionals, financial advisors, commercial bankers, and private banking professionals to meet all of our customer needs in one central convenient location. The growth in deposits is partially attributable to the $25 million, or 28%, increase in municipal deposits during the quarter, and the purchase of $11 million of brokered time deposits. Brokered deposits represent 4.7% of total deposits.

Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston advances increased $20 million year-to-date to $163.1 million at March 31, 2013, and other borrowings increased to $10 million at quarter-end. Other borrowings consisted of reverse repurchase agreements with terms of six months and a weighted average cost of 0.49%. The Company continues its philosophy to opportunistically diversify funding sources at a lowest cost.

Asset Quality

First quarter asset quality metrics remain very favorable. Non-performing assets decreased $0.5 million to $18.4 million at March 31, 2013 from $18.9 million at December 31, 2012. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets decreased 6 basis points to 0.89% at March 31, 2013 from 0.95% at December 31, 2012. Loans on non-accrual decreased $0.3 million to $15.8 million at March 31, 2013 from $16.1 million at December 31, 2012. Included in non-accrual loans are non-accruing troubled debt restructurings (TDR). Non-accruing TDRs increased $177,000 to $3.3 million at March 31, 2013 from $3.1 million at December 31, 2012. The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans increased 1 basis point to 1.01% at March 31, 2013 from 1.00% at December 31, 2012 due to the decrease in the size of the loan portfolio in that time period. At March 31, 2013, the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-performing loans and of total loans outstanding was 117.13% and 1.18%, compared to 115.08% and 1.15% at December 31, 2012, respectively.

Dividend

The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend on the Company's common stock of $0.10 per share to shareholders of record at the close of business on April 29, 2013 and payable on May 6, 2013. This dividend equates to a 3.10% annualized yield based on the $12.90 average closing price of the Company's common stock in the first quarter of 2013. The Company has paid dividends for 28 consecutive quarters. The dividend payout ratio for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was 62%.

Stock Repurchase Program

Upon reaching the one year anniversary of its March 3, 2011 stock conversion, the Company's Board of Directors approved a stock buyback plan on March 2, 2012 and commenced the plan on March 13, 2012. Under this plan, the Company may repurchase up to 2,951,250 shares, or 10% of the outstanding shares at the time the plan was approved. As of March 31, 2013, the Company had repurchased 1,987,819 shares at an average cost of $12.05 per share. The average closing price of the Company's common stock over this time period was $12.27 per share.

The Company repurchased 181,343 shares during the quarter ended March 31, 2013, at an average price of $12.83, which was 113% of the Company's tangible book value of $11.38. The average closing price during the first quarter was $12.90, or 113% of the Company's tangible book value.

Management Comments

"Rockville significantly returned capital to its shareholders in the first quarter of 2013; returning 113% of the quarter's net income including both dividends and the stock buyback program. Our total shareholder return year-over-year is 16% compared to the U.S. SNL Bank & Thrift index of 14%," stated William H. W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). "Rockville Financial will continue to balance investments in the Company with current period profitability. We will also continue to evaluate cost saving opportunities."
