Territorial Bancorp Inc. Logo

HONOLULU, Aug. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Territorial Bancorp Inc., (Nasdaq:TBNK) (the "Company"), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $3.7 million or $0.37 per basic and $0.36 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $3.8 million or $0.38 per basic and $0.37 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in earnings for the second quarter of 2013 was primarily due to a decline in interest earned on investment securities that occurred as higher yielding mortgage-backed securities were repaid and securities with lower yields were added to the investment portfolio. The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.13 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on August 29, 2013 to stockholders of record as of August 15, 2013.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said "Hawaii's economy continues to improve primarily because of growth in the visitor and construction industries. We have been successful in increasing the size of our mortgage loan portfolio despite the increase in mortgage interest rates that occurred during the second quarter. Our emphasis continues to be on servicing the residents of Hawaii by offering mortgage loans and deposit products with attractive interest rates. We continue to work to improve shareholder returns through our stock repurchase program and payment of dividends. I am pleased to announce that because of our strong performance we will be paying a quarterly dividend of $0.13 per share of common stock."

Interest Income

For the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, net interest income was $12.2 million and $13.0 million, respectively. The decrease in net interest income was due to a $1.7 million decrease in interest and dividend income which was partially offset by a $907,000 decrease in interest expense. Total interest and dividend income was $13.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $15.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in interest and dividend income was primarily due to a decline in interest earned on investment securities which totaled $4.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $6.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. This decline in interest income on investment securities resulted from repayments on higher yielding mortgage-backed securities and the addition of securities with lower yields to the investment portfolio. The decrease in interest earned on investment securities was partially offset by a $68,000 increase in interest earned on loans and other investments which occurred primarily because of higher mortgage loan originations and growth in the mortgage loan portfolio.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense decreased to $1.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $2.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in interest expense was primarily due to a $508,000 reduction of interest expense on deposits and a $360,000 reduction of interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase. The drop in interest expense was due primarily to the lower interest rate environment and the payoff of higher costing securities sold under agreements to repurchase. During the current quarter, there was a $16,000 credit to the provision for loan losses compared to a $79,000 credit for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $2.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The increase in noninterest income was primarily due to an $852,000 increase in gain on sale of investment securities.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense increased to $8.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to $8.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to higher occupancy, equipment and other general and administrative expenses. The increase in these expenses was offset by reductions in salaries and employee benefits expense and loss on extinguishment of debt.

Assets and Equity

Total assets decreased to $1.562 billion at June 30, 2013 from $1.575 billion at December 31, 2012. Cash and cash equivalents decreased to $87.2 million at June 30, 2013 from $182.8 million at December 31, 2012. Investment securities held to maturity increased to $582.7 million as of June 30, 2013 from $554.7 million at December 31, 2012 as new securities purchased exceeded the amount of repayments and sales. Loans receivable grew to $821.8 million at June 30, 2013 from $774.9 million at December 31, 2012 due to an increase in residential mortgage loan originations. The growth in loans receivable and investment securities was funded by cash and cash equivalents. Deposits decreased to $1.235 billion at June 30, 2013 from $1.238 billion at December 31, 2012. Total stockholders' equity decreased to $218.0 million at June 30, 2013 from $219.0 million at December 31, 2012. The slight decrease in stockholders' equity was primarily due to shares repurchased under the Company's stock buyback program and dividend payments. The Board of Directors has authorized four stock buyback programs to date. Through June 30, 2013, the Company has repurchased 2,016,189 shares, compared to 1,684,171 shares as of December 31, 2012.

Asset Quality

Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $2.0 million (7 loans) at June 30, 2013, compared to $2.0 million (8 loans) at December 31, 2012. Non-performing assets totaled $5.4 million at June 30, 2013 compared to $4.4 million at December 31, 2012. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets of 0.34% at June 30, 2013 remains one of the lowest in the country. The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2013 was $1.6 million and represented 0.20% of total loans. At December 31, 2012, the allowance for loan losses was $1.7 million and represented 0.22% of total loans.
