BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foundation Bancorp, Inc. (OTCBB:FDNB), the holding company for Foundation Bank, today reported it earned $521,000, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $581,000, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the second quarter a year ago. In the first six months of the year, Foundation's earnings increased 62.6% to $1.5 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $935,000, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the like period a year ago.
"Our business outlook continues to improve as the local economic recovery takes hold and our loan pipeline is active and growing," said Diane Dewbrey, President and CEO. "Profitability strengthened even further as we continued to substantially reduce legal costs and other expenses related to repossessed properties and continued to grow our core deposit base while letting higher cost wholesale funding run off. We remain optimistic for a strong second half of the year."
Second Quarter 2013 Highlights:
- Net income was $521,000 in the second quarter of 2013 compared to $581,000 in the second quarter a year ago.
- Non-performing assets (NPAs), consisting of non-accrual loans and foreclosed assets was $24.1 million, or 6.9% of total assets, at June 30, 2013 down from $31.9 million, or 9.2% of total assets, three months earlier.
- Net interest margin was 4.00% for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to 3.93% in the preceding quarter.
- Total non-interest expense decreased 11% to $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $3.2 million in the second quarter a year ago.
- Gross loans increased 3.3% to $280.9 million at June 30, 2013 compared to $271.9 million a year ago.
- Non-interest bearing demand deposits increased 12% compared to a year ago and represent 37% of total deposits at June 30, 2013.
- Return on average equity was 7.58% for the quarter and 11.25% for the first six months of 2013.
Total non-accrual loans declined 23% to $16.9 million at June 30, 2013 compared to $21.9 million both three months earlier and a year earlier. Of the $16.9 million in loans classified as non-accrual, 58 %, or $9.9 million of these loans are performing as agreed under revised payment schedules.
Foreclosed assets (including Other Real Estate Owned (OREO) and Other Property Owned (OPO)) declined during the quarter to $7.2 million at June 30, 2013, compared to $8.0 million at March 31, 2013.
"OREO balances [without OPO] of $6.3 million, consists of eight properties with one property accounting for over 50% of the total. The one property is a single family residence located on Lake Washington and is currently under contract for closing later in the year," said Dewbrey. Of the total amount in OREO, Foundation is receiving rent/lease payments on $3.8 million.
"During the second quarter we had a significant charge off of $3.3 million due to a borrower committing fraud," Dewbrey added. "As a result, net charge-offs totaled $4.0 million in the second quarter and due to continued loan portfolio improvements, no loan loss provision was required. This compares to net loan recoveries of $12,000 in the first quarter of 2013 and net charge-offs of $1.3 million in the second quarter a year ago. We are pursuing different avenues for recovery; however, it is expected to take a long time to recover any money if we are successful."
Non-performing assets (NPAs), consisting of non-accrual loans and foreclosed assets, were $24.1 million, or 6.9% of total assets, at June 30, 2013 compared to $29.9 million, or 8.6% of total assets, at March 31, 2013 and $30.8 million, or 9.8% of total assets, a year ago. The overall credit quality of the loan portfolio continued to show steady improvements year-over-year and assets classified as performing, but internally risk rated special mention and substandard, also continued to improve.

Gross loans increased 3.3% to $280.9 million at June 30, 2013 compared to $271.9 million a year ago. Excluding non-accrual loans, loans increased 5.7% year-over-year. Commercial real estate (CRE) loans totaled $163.4 million at June 30, 2013 and comprise 58.0% of the total loan portfolio.

Foundation's second quarter net interest margin improved seven basis points to 4.00% compared to 3.93% in the preceding quarter. The net interest margin was 4.12% in the second quarter a year ago. "Our net interest margin expanded from the preceding quarter but was down compared to the second quarter a year ago due to the continued downward pressure on loan yields," said Dewbrey. In the first six months of the year, the net interest margin was 3.98% compared to 4.14% in the first six months of 2012.
Non-interest income was $133,000 in the second quarter of 2013 compared to $490,000 in the second quarter a year ago. Second quarter 2012's non-interest income included $361,000 in gains from securities sales.

In the first six months of the year non-interest expense declined 15.9% to $5.3 million compared to $6.3 million in the same period a year earlier. The decrease in non-interest expense both for the quarter and for the year-to-date period was primarily due to lower legal expenses and lower costs associated with OREO.
