HONOLULU, July 26, 2018 (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 $4.96 million or $0.53 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $4.30 million or $0.45 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2017.
The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.22 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on August 23, 2018, to stockholders of record as of August 9, 2018.
Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our strong performance continued in the second quarter as we emphasize increasing the size of our loan portfolio by originating residential mortgage loans with good credit quality. Hawaii’s strong economy has allowed us to increase the size of our loan portfolio and total deposits. We also are proud to announce a 10% increase in our quarterly cash dividend from $0.20 per share to $0.22 per share. This is our 35th consecutive quarterly dividend and will be paid to our shareholders on August 23rd.”
Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased to $14.85 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $14.65 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of 1.37%. Total interest income was $18.18 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $16.78 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The $1.41 million growth in interest income was due to a $1.36 million increase in interest earned on loans, which resulted primarily from the $134.80 million increase in the average balance of loans receivable for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017.
Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses
Total interest expense increased to $3.28 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $2.25 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. Interest expense on deposits increased to $2.69 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $1.78 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in interest expense on deposits occurred primarily because of the $111.89 million growth in the average balance of total deposits for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017 and an increase in the cost of certificates of deposit. The increase in the cost of certificates of deposit occurred primarily because of higher interest rates paid on newly opened certificates of deposit from state and local governments with terms greater than two years. These deposits were used to reduce interest rate risk in a rising interest rate environment by extending the maturity of fixed-rate deposits. Interest expense on advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) grew to $459,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $261,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in interest expense on FHLB advances was primarily due to a $32.20 million increase in the average balance of FHLB advances for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017. These additional borrowings, which have higher fixed interest rates and terms greater than two years, were used primarily to reduce interest rate risk in a rising interest rate environment by extending the maturity of fixed-rate borrowings.
During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the provision for loan losses was $60,000 compared to a $123,000 reversal of the provision for loan losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The reversal in 2017 resulted from improving credit quality of the Company’s loan portfolio and a reduction in loan losses.
Noninterest income was $837,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $1.06 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to a $141,000 decrease in the gain on sale of investment securities and a $53,000 decrease in the amount of loans sold.
Noninterest expense was $9.37 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $8.75 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to a $596,000 increase in salaries and employee benefits that occurred because of a decrease in the capitalized cost of new loan originations and an increase in the minimum average hourly wage rate we pay to $15.00 an hour. As new loans are originated, the Company capitalizes a portion of the cost of new loan originations and reduces the salary expense attributable to such originations. The Company originated fewer loans in the quarter ended June 30, 2018 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The reduction in the number of loans originated lowered the capitalized cost of new loan originations and raised compensation expense. Starting on January 1, 2018, Territorial Savings Bank also raised the minimum hourly wage rate it pays to $15.00 an hour, to share the benefits it is receiving from the reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35.00% in 2017 to 21.00%, effective for 2018.
Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $1.35 million compared to $2.65 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The reduction in income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 is primarily due to the reduction of the federal corporate tax rate from 35.00% in 2017 to 21.00%, effective January 1, 2018. Income tax expense also includes tax benefits of $140,000 from a $1.00 million contribution to the Company’s defined benefit pension plan and $110,500 from the exercise of stock options. The tax benefit from the pension contribution occurred as the tax deduction for the pension contribution is calculated at the 35.00% federal corporate tax rate for 2017 rather than the 21.00% corporate tax rate for 2018.
Assets and Equity
Total assets increased to $2.032 billion at June 30, 2018 from $2.004 billion at December 31, 2017. Investment securities decreased by $12.80 million to $394.85 million at June 30, 2018. Loans receivable grew by $47.42 million to $1.536 billion at June 30, 2018 from $1.489 billion at December 31, 2017 as residential mortgage loan originations exceeded loan repayments and sales. The growth in loans receivable was funded primarily by a $49.89 million increase in deposits. Deposits increased by 3.12% to $1.647 billion at June 30, 2018 from $1.597 billion at December 31, 2017. Total stockholders’ equity decreased to $234.70 million at June 30, 2018 from $234.85 million at December 31, 2017. The decrease in stockholders’ equity occurred primarily as share repurchases and payment of dividends exceeded the Company’s net income for the second quarter.
The Company uses share repurchases as part of its overall program to enhance stockholder value. On June 8, 2018, the Company announced the adoption of its eighth stock repurchase program. This program allows the Company to repurchase up to $5,000,000 of the company’s outstanding shares, or approximately 1.7% of its total outstanding shares.
As of June 30, 2018, the Company has 341,335 outstanding, exercisable stock options. The exercise of options would increase the number of shares outstanding, which among other things, would reduce earnings per share.
Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $894,000 (3 loans) at June 30, 2018, compared to $1.63 million (5 loans) at December 31, 2017. Non-performing assets totaled $2.10 million at June 30, 2018 compared to $4.23 million at December 31, 2017. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets decreased to 0.10% at June 30, 2018 from 0.21% at December 31, 2017. The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2018 was $2.61 million and represented 0.17% of total loans, compared to $2.55 million and 0.17% of total loans at December 31, 2017.
