Riverview Bancorp Fourth Fiscal Quarter Earnings Increase Over 50%, Highlighted by Credit Quality Improvements

VANCOUVER, Wash., May 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Riverview Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:RVSB) ("Riverview" or the "Company") today reported it earned $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in its fourth fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013. This compares to net income of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter and a net loss of $16.0 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter a year ago. For all of fiscal 2013, Riverview earned $2.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $31.7 million, or $1.42 per diluted share, for all of fiscal 2012.

"We are very proud of the fundamental improvements our entire organization has made over the last twelve months," stated Pat Sheaffer, Chairman and CEO. "We were profitable for the third consecutive quarter and ended our fiscal year on a high note. Credit quality improved for the fourth consecutive quarter as we continue to make significant improvements resolving problem assets and growing our capital ratios. As we begin our new fiscal year, we will be looking for growth opportunities in our market while continuing to work on improving asset quality."

Credit Quality

"We continued to make solid progress during the fourth quarter at reducing our level of problem assets," said Ron Wysaske, President and COO. Classified assets were $67.6 million at March 31, 2013 compared to $85.7 million at December 31, 2012 and $107.9 million at March 31, 2012. Classified assets declined 21.1% since last quarter and have declined 37.4% since the same period of the prior year.

Nonperforming loan balances decreased $3.5 million during the quarter, primarily in the multi-family loan category. Nonperforming loans were $21.1 million, or 3.94% of total loans, at March 31, 2013 compared to $44.2 million, or 6.45% of total loans a year ago. During the fourth quarter, $1.2 million of new loans were placed on non-accrual status marking the fourth consecutive quarter that inflows of new nonperforming loans have declined.

REO balances decreased $5.1 million during the quarter to $15.6 million, the lowest level in three years. During the quarter, REO sales totaled $2.9 million with write-downs of $2.6 million and additions of $481,000. Subsequent to March 31, 2013, the Bank has sold $1.1 million of additional properties with no loss on sale. The Bank also has an additional $5.0 million in properties under contract with no additional losses projected on these sales.

The Bank's continued reduction in classified and nonperforming loans along with the decline in loan balances and charge-offs, resulted in a $3.6 million negative provision for loan losses during the fourth quarter. Riverview recorded no provision for loan losses in the preceding quarter and recorded a $17.5 million provision in the fourth quarter a year ago. For fiscal year 2013, the provision for loan losses was $900,000 compared to $29.4 million for fiscal year 2012.

The allowance for loan losses was $15.6 million at March 31, 2013, representing 2.92% of total loans and 74.02% of nonperforming loans. Net charge-offs declined for the fourth consecutive quarter as problem credits declined and recoveries on prior loan charge-offs increased. The annualized net charge-offs for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was 0.29%. Net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were $390,000, compared to $507,000 in the preceding quarter and $13.5 million in the fourth fiscal quarter a year ago. Recoveries of prior charge-offs totaled $1.3 million during the quarter.

Balance Sheet Review

Net loan balances declined $19.2 million during the quarter, primarily due to the Bank's continued focus on reducing classified loan balances. "While loan balances declined during the quarter, the Company has two full lending teams that are working both the Vancouver and Portland market areas looking for quality loans and new relationships," said Wysaske. "Competition for loans has remained intense; however, we are optimistic for our loan growth prospects in fiscal year 2014 as our loan pipeline has been steadily growing during the past quarter."

The commercial real estate ("CRE") loan portfolio totaled $297.7 million at March 31, 2013, of which 28% was owner-occupied and 72% was investor-owned. The CRE portfolio contained six loans totaling $10.3 million that were nonperforming, representing 3.5% of the total CRE portfolio and 48.8% of total nonperforming loans. Of the CRE loans that are classified as nonperforming, 34.8% are current on their payments.

Deposit balances decreased due to the expiration of the TAG program coupled with other planned reductions in deposit concentrations. "Despite the decline in deposit balances we were able to move a large percentage of these deposits to our Trust company thus keeping these deposits within the Company," noted Wysaske. Total deposits were $663.8 million at March 31, 2013 compared to $682.8 million at December 31, 2012 and $744.5 million a year ago.

In fiscal 2012, Riverview established a valuation allowance against its deferred tax asset. At March 31, 2013, the total valuation allowance was $16.2 million. Management will review the deferred tax asset on a quarterly basis to determine the appropriate valuation allowance, if needed. Any future reversals of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance would decrease Riverview's income tax expense, increase its after tax net income and shareholders' equity.

Income Statement

Riverview's net interest income in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $6.2 million compared to $7.4 million in the preceding quarter and $8.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. For fiscal year 2013, the net interest income was $29.4 million compared to $33.7 million for fiscal year 2012.

Riverview's net interest margin was 3.64% for the fourth quarter compared to 4.03% for the preceding quarter. For the fiscal year 2013, the net interest margin was 4.06% compared to 4.33% in fiscal year 2012. The decrease in net interest margin was primarily due to a decline in loan yields, a decrease in average loan balances and the continued high balance in low-yielding cash and investments. Loan yields continued to contract as existing loans re-priced and new loans were originated in the current low interest rate environment.

Non-interest income was $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $2.1 million in the preceding quarter and $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Mortgage banking activity remained higher than normal with a total of $14.5 million in new mortgage loans originated during the quarter, resulting in a $245,000 gain on sale of loans held for sale.

Non-interest expense increased to $10.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $8.4 million in the preceding quarter and $8.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily a result of an increase in REO expenses to $2.9 million, which included $2.6 million in write-downs.

"During the fourth quarter the Bank made a concerted effort to be more aggressive in the pricing of our existing REO properties in an attempt to liquidate these properties more quickly," said Wysaske. Based on pending sales activity, the updated pricing strategy appears to be facilitating the sale of these properties.

Capital and Liquidity

The Bank continues to maintain capital levels in excess of the regulatory requirements to be categorized as "well capitalized" with a total risk-based capital ratio of 15.29% and a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 9.99% at March 31, 2013. The FDIC states to be considered well capitalized, a bank must maintain ratios of 10% and 6% respectively.

At March 31, 2013, the Bank had available total and contingent liquidity of more than $470 million, including over $220 million of borrowing capacity from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. The Bank also has more than $145 million of cash and short-term investments.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Riverview believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with information useful in understanding the company's financial performance; however, readers of this report are urged to review these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP results as reported.

Financial measures that exclude intangible assets are non-GAAP measures. To provide investors with a broader understanding of capital adequacy, Riverview provides non-GAAP financial measures for tangible common equity, along with the GAAP measure. Tangible common equity is calculated as shareholders' equity less goodwill and other intangible assets. In addition, tangible assets are total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets.

The following table provides a reconciliation of ending shareholders' equity (GAAP) to ending tangible shareholders' equity (non-GAAP), and ending assets (GAAP) to ending tangible assets (non-GAAP).
