HONOLULU, April 28, 2016 (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 $3.78 million or $0.41 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2016, compared to $3.53 million or $0.38 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2015. 

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share.  The dividend is expected to be paid on May 26, 2016 to stockholders of record as of May 12, 2016.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The growth in our loan portfolio has resulted in a 7.1% increase in total interest and dividend income for the three months ended March 31, 2016 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The increase in interest and dividend income occurred because our loan portfolio grew by 16.9% to $1.215 billion at March 31, 2016 from $1.039 billion at March 31, 2015. The growth in interest income has resulted in a 7.3% increase in net income for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015.  This has allowed our fully-diluted earnings per share to increase to $0.41 per share from $0.38 per share.  Based on this strong performance, we will pay our 26th consecutive quarterly dividend on May 26, 2016." 

Interest Income

Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased to $14.47 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 from $13.58 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Total interest and dividend income was $16.38 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $15.29 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The increase in interest and dividend income was primarily due to a $1.68 million increase in interest earned on loans which occurred because of the growth in loans receivable.  The increase in interest income on loans was offset by a $648,000 decline in interest income on investment securities due to a net reduction in the investment securities portfolio as repayments exceeded securities purchased. 

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense increased to $1.88 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 from $1.52 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  Total interest expense on deposits increased to $1.41 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 from $1.13 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The increase in interest expense on deposits occurred because of the growth in total deposits. Interest expenses on advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank rose by $187,000 due to an increase in Federal Home Loan Bank advances, which was primarily used to fund new loans.  Interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase decreased by $94,000 as maturing borrowings were paid-off.  During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, the provision for loan losses was $28,000 compared to a $194,000 provision for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $886,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $1.25 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The reduction in noninterest income was primarily due to a $236,000 decrease in the gain on sale of investment securities that occurred as there were no securities sold during the three months ended March 31, 2016. 

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $9.06 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $8.90 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  Salaries and employee benefits was $5.43 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $5.10 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense is primarily due to the hiring of additional staff to handle the additional workload associated with an increase in regulatory requirements.  The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense can also be attributed to a lower credit to compensation expense as the Bank originated fewer loans in the three months ended March 31, 2016 as compared to March 31, 2015.  The rise in these expenses was offset by a decrease of $132,000 in other general and administrative expenses, primarily related to a reduction in accounting and auditing expenses.

Assets and Equity

Total assets increased to $1.850 billion at March 31, 2016 from $1.821 billion at December 31, 2015.  Loans receivable grew by $26.11 million or 2.2% to $1.215 billion at March 31, 2016 from $1.189 billion at December 31, 2015 as residential mortgage loan originations exceeded loan repayments and sales. The growth in loans receivable was funded by a $29.82 million increase in deposits.  Deposits increased to $1.475 billion at March 31, 2016 from $1.445 billion at December 31, 2015.  Total stockholders' equity increased to $223.03 million at March 31, 2016 from $219.64 million at December 31, 2015.  The increase in stockholders' equity occurred as the Company's net income for the year exceeded share repurchases and dividends paid to shareholders.   

Share Repurchases

Through December 31, 2015, the Company had repurchased 3,099,253 shares of stock or 25.33% of the shares issued in its initial public offering in 2009. On March 7, 2016, the Company announced the adoption of its seventh share repurchase program of up to 275,000 shares, or approximately 3% of the current outstanding shares.  The Company uses share repurchases as part of its overall program to enhance shareholder value.  In evaluating our share repurchase programs, the Company considers the effect of repurchases on its tangible book value per share. At the Company's current share price level, the amount of dilution to tangible book value may limit the Company's repurchasing of shares.  The Company will closely monitor this issue and, depending on market and other conditions, will conduct repurchases when it makes financial sense.

Asset Quality

Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $1.35 million (5 loans) at March 31, 2016, compared to $1.63 million (7 loans) at December 31, 2015.  Non-performing assets totaled $5.16 million at March 31, 2016 compared to $5.42 million at December 31, 2015.  The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets declined to 0.28% at March 31, 2016 from 0.30% at December 31, 2015 and continues to remain one of the lowest in the country.  The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2016 was $2.18 million and represented 0.18% of total loans compared to $2.17 million and 0.18% of total loans as of December 31, 2015.
