ROCKVILLE, Conn., July 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 $3.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to net income of $2.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Core operating earnings for the second quarter of 2013 were $4.1 million (Non-GAAP), or $0.15 per diluted share, adjusted for expense reduction actions the Company completed during the second quarter that will improve the Company's non-interest expense run rate by $1.5 million annually. The adjustments to GAAP earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 are comprised of expenses of $809,000 (pre-tax) for the impact of a branch lease termination agreement and $561,000 (pre-tax) for termination expense related to position eliminations, as well as income of $329,000 (pre-tax) for securities gains.

"I am pleased to announce that Rockville Financial, Inc. reported solid second quarter core operating earnings of $4.1 million (Non-GAAP). The quarter included 29% annualized commercial loan growth, strong residential mortgage originations, particularly purchase mortgages, significant deposit growth in our new West Hartford Banking Center and new fee income sources, combined with share count and legacy expense reductions. Both the Company's strong loan and deposit growth and flat linked quarter core operating expense reflect Rockville's strategy for continued organic growth and commitment to enhancement of long term shareholder value," stated William H. W. Crawford, IV, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rockville Financial, Inc. and Rockville Bank.

"Given market conditions and the impact of increased interest rates on security portfolio valuations and capital, the Company's net earnings and tangible book value performed well during the second quarter. Rockville continues to balance reinvestment in the Company with current period profits, and remains mindful of operating leverage, protecting tangible book value and mitigating interest rate risk. Each quarter we remain focused on enhancing long term shareholder value. I would like to thank our team of dedicated employees who deliver a superior customer experience every day."

Earnings in both 2013 and 2012 were affected by non-core income and expense. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures may be found in the last table.

Operating Results

Rockville Financial reported net income of $3.3 million for the second quarter of 2013, including $1.4 million of pre-tax expenses that the Company incurred to better allocate overall expense resources and address legacy cost structure issues. These actions will reduce the Company's pre-tax expense run rate by $1.5 million annually thereafter. Without these expense initiatives, the Company reported a solid second quarter core operating earnings of $4.1 million, despite the impact of downward pressure on both net interest margin and mortgage banking spreads. The Company reported return on average assets ("ROA") of 0.64% for the second quarter of 2013, and a ROA of 0.79% on a Non-GAAP basis when adjusting for the non-core items in the quarter's results.

Total operating revenue decreased by $582,000, or 3%, in the second quarter compared to the linked quarter primarily driven by lower mortgage fees and related income. Core operating revenue, which excludes securities gains, also decreased by 3% compared to the linked quarter. On a year-over-year basis total operating revenue increased by 9% in the second quarter and core operating revenue increased by 8%, substantially due to the expansion and development of the mortgage banking business in 2012.

In comparison to the linked quarter, the decrease in core operating revenue is primarily reflective of a decline in the Company's mortgage servicing revenue, partially offset by a $727,000 increase to the mortgage servicing rights ("MSR") asset fair value. The Company regularly studies the yield curve landscape and the potential macro-economic factors affecting rates, to decision the pace at which residential mortgages are sold in the secondary market. In determining this pace, considerations include the Company's interest rate risk position as it relates to margin and balance sheet composition, as well as market spreads and local competition. This view can determine the length of time residential mortgages may reside on the balance sheet subsequent to closing and funding.

The Company sold $66 million of residential mortgage loans in the second quarter of 2013, reporting net gains of $1.0 million as compared to net gains of $2.1 million in the linked quarter. Net gains on sales of loans decreased from the linked quarter due to timing and spreads. Our strategy remains to sell longer term fixed rate residential loans into the secondary market, however the long-term interest rate increases in the second quarter did impact our secondary market operation. Given the elevated market volatility and lagging competitor reaction to the 64 basis points increase in the 10-year Treasury yield during the quarter, gain on sale spreads narrowed and some new volume was designated for portfolio rather than for sale into the secondary market.

Despite the linked quarter decline in mortgage banking revenue, the Company's core operating earnings per share of $0.15 reflects the development of a more diversified business model, whereby the Company is not reliant on one or two business lines, but has multiple revenue levers to draw upon. Two such contributors to the increase in service charges and fees, as compared to the linked quarter and the prior period, are financial advisory services and a loan level hedge. The Company's investment subsidiary, Rockville Financial Services ("RFS"), enhanced non-interest income during the quarter by reporting a $160,000, or 112%, increase from the linked quarter. This business line continues to evolve and has reported three consecutive quarters of substantial fee income increases since its reorganization in the fourth quarter of 2012. In fact, second quarter revenue results for RFS of $303,000 were $203,000, or 203%, greater than the prior year period, and only $80,000 less than the annual gross revenues produced in 2012 for this subsidiary. Additionally, the Company executed loan level hedging in the second quarter of 2013, augmenting fee income by $174,000 over the linked quarter and prior year period.

Net interest income was stable and increased slightly by $194,000, or 1%, to $16.7 million in the second quarter compared to the linked quarter; $367,000 of which was attributable to the increase in commercial loan prepayment fees. Average earning assets increased by $16 million, or 1%, due to continued business development resulting in commercial loan growth and through strategic actions to expand the available-for-sale investment portfolio. Late-quarter commercial loan fundings will have a greater positive impact on net interest income in the third quarter of 2013 as compared to the second quarter. The tax equivalent net interest margin for the second quarter of 2013 increased by 1 basis point to 3.48%, compared to 3.47% for the first quarter of 2013 as a result of the stable tax equivalent yield on interest-earning assets accompanied by the 5 basis points decline in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities. Excluding the commercial loan prepayment fees the tax equivalent net interest margin was 3.41% for the second quarter of 2013.

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 efforts on reducing the cost of funds. The average balance of core deposits increased over the quarter including strong growth in non-interest bearing deposits, while the average balance of higher cost time deposits declined. The Company's strategic decision to take steps to shorten the duration of interest earning assets during the quarter while incrementally extending funding sources should better position the balance sheet for rising interest rates and enhance its long-term earnings.

The second quarter provision for loan losses was little changed at $403,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 due to the stable balances and favorable credit metrics in the loan portfolio during this time period. Net charge-offs for the second quarter were $595,000, or 0.15% annualized as a percentage of average loans outstanding. Provision expense continues to be assessed in correlation to the Company's loan growth and risk profile.

While non-interest expense increased $1.2 million, or 8%, on a linked quarter basis, core operating expense declined by $182,000, or 1%, to $14.5 million, thereby reporting flat core operating expense for three consecutive quarters. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily attributable to increases in salaries and benefits as well as occupancy and equipment expense, both of which were related to non-core items as a result of Company expense actions. Unrelated to the analysis of the Company's independent third-party efficiency consultant, the Company completed a self-assessment of various functional area roles within each department, identified several roles that were redundant across the organization and eliminated nine positions during the second quarter as a result of this evaluation. This internal reorganization resulted in $561,000 of separation expense in the second quarter, and was the leading contributor to the increase in salaries and benefits compared to the prior quarter. New hires during the quarter were primarily to support expansion in revenue driving divisions. FTE decreased 2% to 329 at June 30, 2013 from 335 at March 31, 2013.

Additionally during the second quarter, as part of the Company's review of branch profitability, the Company announced that it filed notice with its regulators that it will be closing its branch located at 660 Enfield Street in Enfield, Connecticut. The Company executed a lease termination agreement which resulted in $809,000 of expense in the second quarter of 2013. That non-core expense is related to the future lease expense and unamortized leasehold improvements in that branch location that were accelerated upon execution of the lease termination agreement. The second quarter 2013 non-interest expense as a percentage of average assets and the efficiency ratio were 3.07% and 76.21%, respectively. On a core basis, non-interest expense as a percentage of average assets and the efficiency ratio were 2.81% and 70.74%, respectively. The Company continues to evaluate cost saving efficiencies.

Strong Organic Loan and Deposit Growth;

Securities and Borrowings Increase

Net loans increased by $44 million, or 3%, during the quarter, driven primarily by commercial loan activity given the Company's strategy to sell fixed rate residential loans to the secondary market to mitigate interest rate risk when market spreads are advantageous. The Company sold $66 million of residential mortgage loans in the second quarter of 2013.

Expansion of the mortgage banking division 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 five additional MLOs hired in 2013. During the second quarter of 2013 the Company originated residential mortgages totaling $77 million, a $2 million increase from the linked quarter during a time when the refinance business was diminishing due to the increase in long term interest rates. The Company was able to increase volumes despite the increase in rates because the transition to MLOs 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.

Purchase mortgage originations increased by 96% to $31 million in the second quarter of 2013 from $16 million in the linked quarter. The Company increased its purchase mortgage market share in the State of Connecticut during the second quarter to 1.4% from 1.0% in the prior quarter.

The Company reported a strong 29% annualized linked quarter commercial loan growth in the second quarter of 2013. At June 30, 2013, commercial loans totaled $973 million and had increased by $65 million, or 7%, during the quarter, comprised of a $31 million increase in the commercial real estate portfolio and a $34 million increase in the commercial business portfolio, while the commercial construction portfolio was flat. Average commercial loans grew by $3 million in the second quarter, significantly less than the quarter-over-quarter growth due to the late quarter timing of many of the fundings. Therefore, average commercial loan growth is anticipated to be stronger in the third quarter of 2013. The commercial pipeline remains strong and the Company continues its disciplined approach to asset quality standards and satisfactory return on capital guidelines. Commercial banking deposits were flat over the quarter at 12.6% of total deposits, and included a slight decline in municipal deposits and also some seasonality during tax season. The commercial banking deposits are expected to continue to benefit from the Company's recently introduced private banking business. This division increases opportunities for the Company by way of increased relationships with high net worth individuals, professionals and business owners.

The available-for-sale securities portfolio increased $38 million and $109 million for the three-months and six-months ending June 30, 2013, respectively. Securities purchases in the second quarter consisted of A or better rated government sponsored commercial mortgage-backed securities, adjustable rate collateralized loan obligations, adjustable rate government sponsored asset-backed securities and government sponsored mortgage-backed securities. The Company additionally purchased investment grade corporate debt securities and a preferred stock security. Collateralized loan obligations were 15% of the investment portfolio as of June 30, 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. The Company's municipal bond portfolio and bank-owned life insurance continue to benefit its effective tax rate which decreased to 27.5% in the second quarter of 2013 from 28.1% in the linked quarter.

Deposits totaled $1.59 billion at June 30, 2013, an increase of $40 million from $1.55 billion at March 31, 2013, reflecting a $22 million, or 10%, increase in non-interest bearing deposits and an $18 million, or 1%, increase in interest bearing deposits. Deposits have increased $82 million, or 5%, year-to-date. Deposit growth was enhanced by the first quarter opening of the West Hartford Banking Center, which is reporting total deposits of $25 million at June 30, 2013. 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. Municipal deposits continue to be an important funding source for the Company with a total of $89 million in deposits on June 30, 2013. Additionally, brokered time deposits increased by $10 million, totaling $82 million as of quarter-end. Inclusive of commercial money market deposits deemed to be brokered deposits, total brokered deposits were $117 million at June 30, 2013, or 7.4% of total deposits.

Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston advances increased $90 million to $253 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2013, primarily resulting from short-term advances. Other borrowings increased to $19 million at quarter-end, and consisted of reverse repurchase agreements with terms of six months and a weighted average cost of 0.48%. The Company continues its philosophy to opportunistically diversify funding sources at a lowest possible cost.

Asset Quality

Second quarter asset quality metrics remain very favorable. Non-performing assets decreased $3.0 million to $15.9 million at June 30, 2013 from $18.9 million at December 31, 2012. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets decreased 22 basis points to 0.73% at June 30, 2013 from 0.95% at December 31, 2012. Loans on non-accrual decreased $2.8 million to $13.3 million at June 30, 2013 from $16.1 million at December 31, 2012. Included in non-accrual loans are non-accruing troubled debt restructurings (TDR). Non-accruing TDRs decreased $674,000 to $2.5 million at June 30, 2013 from $3.1 million at December 31, 2012. The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans decreased 17 basis points to 0.83% at June 30, 2013 from 1.00% at December 31, 2012. At June 30, 2013, the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-performing loans and of total loans outstanding was 137.55% and 1.14%, 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 July 29, 2013 and payable on August 5, 2013. This dividend equates to a 3.07% annualized yield based on the $13.03 average closing price of the Company's common stock in the second quarter of 2013. The Company has paid dividends for 29 consecutive quarters. The dividend payout ratio for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was 84% (68% of core operating earnings).

Tangible Book Value

Tangible book value decreased by $0.27 during the quarter to $11.11 at June 30, 2013 from $11.38 at March 31, 2013. The decline was partially attributable to a net contraction in accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI") given the widening of unrealized loss on the available-for-sale securities portfolio, partially offset by improving mark to market valuation on interest rate swap agreements, which amounted to $0.15, or 1% of tangible book value. The Company believes the composition and duration of the securities portfolio, coupled with the hedge, protected tangible book value well on a relative basis given the rapid increase in the 10-year Treasury yield during the second quarter. Additionally, the substantial stock repurchase program activity during the quarter produced a net $0.16 decline in tangible book value, when considering both cost and share count. The Company remains confident that stock buybacks are an excellent long-term capital management tool which will ultimately lead to increasing return on equity. The negative impact of the Company's $0.10 dividend was more than offset by the second quarter's net income and other less significant components to shareholders' equity.

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 was authorized to repurchase up to 2,951,250 shares, or 10% of the outstanding shares at the time the plan was approved. As of May 20, 2013, the Company had repurchased all of the shares authorized in the program at an average cost of $12.36 per share. The average closing price of the Company's common stock over this time period was $12.35 per share, which was 109% of the Company's March 31, 2013 tangible book value of $11.38.

The Company obtained approval and initiated a new buyback plan on May 20, 2013. Under this new plan, the Company is authorized to repurchase up to 2,730,026 shares, or 10% of the outstanding shares at the time the plan was approved. As of June 30, 2013, the Company repurchased 757,708 shares, at an average price of $13.15 while the average closing price during this time period was $13.18. In total, the Company repurchased 3,708,958 shares as of June 30, 2013, or 13% of total shares outstanding prior to the first repurchase program.
