Washington Banking Company Earns $2.9 Million, or $0.19 per Share, in 2Q13

OAK HARBOR, Wash., July 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Washington Banking Company (Nasdaq:WBCO), the holding company for Whidbey Island Bank, today reported it earned $2.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, down from $4.6 million or $0.30 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter and up 2% from $2.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012. For the first six months of 2013, Washington Banking earned $7.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $7.6 million, or $0.49 per diluted share in the first half of 2012. The quarterly reforecast of expected cash flows of covered loans prompted additional provisions for these loans, particularly in the hospitality sector, as cash flows are now projected to be lower than previously expected. The net costs associated with the covered loan portfolio were $1.0 million, or $0.07 per share, in the second quarter of 2013 and $1.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2013. Despite these adjustments, Washington Banking remains solidly profitable, non-covered asset quality continues to improve and loan growth is accelerating.

"While we have predicted that the impact of the FDIC-assisted transactions would taper off as the portfolio ages, that was not the case this quarter," said Jack Wagner, President and Chief Executive Officer, "as the $61 million pool of covered hospitality loans deteriorated considerably in the second quarter. Consequently, we booked a $10.9 million provision for covered loans, partially offset by an $8.7 million write-up of the FDIC indemnification asset and a $626,000 reversal of the clawback accrual in the quarter." For the first six months of 2013, the provision for covered loans totaled $12.4 million, and for the life of both FDIC-assisted acquisitions, the provision for covered loans has been $15.9 million. Offsetting these provisions were changes in the FDIC indemnification asset and a reduction in the clawback expense, bringing the net costs down to $1.0 million in the second quarter and $1.2 million year to date. The following table details the impact of these items:

"There is no doubt that the CityBank and North County Bank acquisitions made meaningful contributions to our profitability and franchise value over the past three years," Wagner continued. "Since the two FDIC-assisted acquisitions, we have generated covered interest income of over $100 million, produced a net interest margin well above the industry averages, and have several full-service locations in the fastest growing parts of the region."

"Our general business outlook is continuing to get better as the economic recovery takes hold," said Bryan McDonald, Whidbey Island Bank's President and CEO. "Loan demand is improving and our pipeline of activity is growing. During the second quarter, we closed $50.1 million in new commercial loans, renewed or extended $53.7 million in existing commercial loans and funded $53.3 million in residential mortgages, for both refinance and purchase transactions. While we believe the refinance mortgage market is likely to decline in the coming months, residential purchase activity looks like it will continue to be strong. We are also opening a significant number of home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) and seeing more use on the HELOCs that we booked last year, which demonstrates that market pricing is improving and consumer confidence is returning."

Second quarter loan production contributed to 1% non-covered loan growth in the quarter and 5% growth year-over-year. For the first six months of 2013, average loans increased 3.6% to $856.1 million from $826.2 million a year ago. Mortgage banking income contributed $1.1 million to second quarter revenues, up from $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2013 and $776,000 in the second quarter a year ago.

Second quarter 2013 Financial Highlights (as of, or for the period ended June 30, 2013)

  • On a consolidated basis, Total Risk-Based Capital to risk-adjusted assets was 19.86% compared to 19.79% a year ago. The minimum ratio to be considered well-capitalized under FDIC rules is 10%.
  • Asset quality continues to improve with the ratio of nonperforming non-covered assets (NPAs) to total assets dropping to 0.96% from 1.03% in the first quarter and 1.30% a year ago. Classified loans declined to $72.2 million at June 30, 2013, from $84.8 million at June 30, 2012.
  • Tangible book value per common share was $11.04, compared to $10.97 a year ago.
  • Low-cost demand, money market, savings and NOW accounts were $1.00 billion, or 71% of total deposits.
  • Loan loss reserves were 1.99% of non-covered loans, and 2.16% a year ago.
  • The interest income generated from the loan portfolios in the FDIC-assisted acquisitions contributed $6.0 million to second quarter revenues.
  • In the second quarter, the net interest margin fell 16 basis points to 4.68% compared to 4.84% in the preceding quarter, and fell 99 basis points from 5.67% in the year ago quarter, reflecting declines in both the yields and balances of covered loans.
  • Authorized a stock repurchase program allowing for the buyback of up to 775,000 shares (approximately 5%) of current outstanding common stock.

Regional Economic and Acquisitions Update

"The Washington State economy continues to improve with statewide unemployment dropping to 6.6% in June and 4.4% for the greater Seattle/Bellevue/Everett area," said Wagner. "We are also seeing robust activity in housing and retail sales in most of the markets we serve. In June, the unemployment rate improved in all our markets, with Snohomish County at 4.7%, Whatcom County at 7.2%, Island County at 7.6% and Skagit County at 8.5%. Likewise, home sales are accelerating and housing prices are steadily rebounding."

Reflecting the deterioration in the performance of about 30% of the covered loan hospitality portfolio in the quarter, the FDIC indemnification asset carried on the balance sheet increased 17% in the quarter to $32.8 million, and is down 74% from its peak of $124.7 million in the third quarter of 2010. "We continue to expend resources, time and energy to manage problem assets and deal with the complex accounting process," said Rick Shields, Chief Financial Officer. "We are making headway in the resolution of our covered loans and the FDIC loss share of 80% / 20% mitigates the risk in these portfolios. We expect that covered other real estate owned (OREO) will increase during the next few quarters as properties are worked through the collections process."

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 10% for the quarter, 27% year-over-year and 61% since acquisition.

Credit Quality

"Our non-covered loan portfolio continues to perform well with overall asset quality improving during the second quarter. Total nonperforming assets fell 28% from a year ago," said Dan Kuenzi, Chief Credit Officer. "Residential construction projects account for more than one-third of nonperforming assets, with about half of those loans located in Whatcom County. Foreclosed properties account for almost one-third of NPAs as we move delinquent loans through the collection process."

Nonperforming, non-covered loans (NPL) decreased during the second quarter to $10.9 million from $11.8 million in the first quarter and from $17.2 million in the year ago quarter, with residential construction loans accounting for 38% of nonperforming assets. The ratio of NPLs/total non-covered loans improved to 1.27% at June 30, 2013, from 1.40% at the end of the first quarter and 2.11% a year ago. Nonperforming, non-covered assets (NPA)/total assets improved to 0.96% compared to 1.03% in the preceding quarter and 1.30% a year ago. Non-covered other real estate owned (OREO) was $4.7 million, compared to $5.3 million in the preceding quarter and $4.4 million a year ago.

The provision for non-covered loan losses was $850,000 in the second quarter, compared to $450,000 in the first quarter of 2013 and $2.4 million in the second quarter a year ago. The allowance for non-covered loan losses totaled $17.0 million, or 1.99% of non-covered loans. Total net charge-offs in the second quarter were $809,000, or 0.38% of average total loans on an annualized basis, compared to $671,000, or 0.32% of average loans in the preceding quarter and $2.8 million, or 1.37% of average loans, in the second quarter a year ago.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $1.62 billion at June 30, 2013, down slightly from $1.67 billion in the preceding quarter and $1.66 billion a year ago. Total non-covered loans increased 1% to $853.3 million compared to $843.8 million at March 31, 2013, and were up 5% from $814.8 million at June 30, 2012.

The non-covered loan portfolio is well diversified with commercial and industrial loans making up 19.6% and residential mortgages accounting for 4.2% of the portfolio. Owner-occupied commercial real estate loans represent 26.5% of the portfolio and non-owner occupied commercial real estate loans account for 23.5% of loans. Indirect consumer loans account for 9.1% of the portfolio and other consumer loans account for 9.3%. Construction and land development loans for residential properties are 4.6% and commercial construction and land development loans represent 3.1% of the portfolio.

As resolution of the covered portfolio progresses, net covered loans totaled $176.7 million and covered OREO totaled $12.9 million at June 30, 2013, compared to $195.6 million and $15.5 million, respectively, three months earlier.

The mix of total deposits continued to improve with non-CD deposits increasing to 71.2% of total deposits from 65.3% a year ago. The level of total deposits was relatively stable at $1.40 billion at June 30, 2013 compared to $1.45 billion a year ago. Noninterest-bearing demand deposits decreased 3% in the quarter and increased 4% year-over-year, representing 17.5% of total deposits. Year-over-year, NOW accounts increased 10% to $343.2 million, comprising 24.4% of deposits; time deposits declined 20% to $404.0 million and accounted for 28.8% of total deposits. Core deposits, excluding time deposits over $100,000, represented 87.1% of all deposits.

Tangible shareholder equity totaled $171.4 million, or $11.04 per share at June 30, 2013, compared to $169.5 million or, $10.97 per share, a year ago. Reflecting the recent rise in interest rates and the resulting impact on the value of the securities portfolio, total shareholders' equity decreased 4% in the quarter and increased 1% year-over-year.

Operating Results

In the second quarter of 2013, net interest income decreased 5% to $17.4 million from the linked quarter of $18.2 million, and declined 17% from $20.9 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 13.16% in the first quarter of 2013 to 12.67% in the current quarter and 15.16% in the second quarter a year ago. For the first six months of 2013, net interest income fell 16% to $35.5 million from $42.2 million in the first half of 2012.

"The complexities of the FDIC-assisted accounting items on the income statement this quarter added some noise to the quarter and masked the underlying performance of the bank this year," said Shields. Excluding the change in the FDIC indemnification assets, the gain on disposition of covered loans, and the gain on sale of securities, noninterest income in the second quarter totaled $3.7 million down from $3.9 million in the first quarter and up from $3.6 million in the year ago quarter. The major driver of core noninterest income was gains realized from the sale of mortgage loans, which contributed $1.1 million to second quarter revenues and $1.0 million in the first quarter and $776,000 in the second quarter 2012. In the first six months of 2013, noninterest income excluding the change in the FDIC indemnification asset, the gain on disposition of covered loans, and the gain on sale of securities, was up 10% to $7.6 million compared to $6.9 million in the first six months of 2012, fueled primarily by contributions from mortgage gains.

Washington Banking's net interest margin decreased 16 basis points from the preceding quarter to 4.68% from 4.84% and fell 99 basis points from 5.67% in the year ago quarter. For the first six months of 2013, net interest margin dropped 98 basis points to 4.76% from 5.74% in the first six months of 2012. "As anticipated, as we reduce the size of the covered loan portfolio, its generous contribution to margin is diminishing," Shields noted.

Operating expense was down 7% in the quarter and 14% year over year. For the first half of 2013, operating expenses were down 7% to $27.0 million from $28.8 million a year ago.

In a separate release today, Washington Banking announced it will pay a quarterly cash dividend of $0.09 per common share. "In keeping with our two-tiered approach in determining our dividend payouts each quarter, we are paying our basic dividend of $0.07 plus $0.02 per share in the variable dividend, which results in the total dividend at nearly 50% of earnings," Wagner noted. "Our board will continue to evaluate dividends each quarter based on capital requirements, market opportunities and other operating considerations."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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:
