Net Interest Income

For the three months ended December 31, 2015, total interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $934,000 or 19.4 percent, to $5.8 million, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2014. Interest income rose in the quarter ended December 31, 2015, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2015 primarily due to a $31.1 million increase in the average balance of our loans and a $65.9 million increase in the average balance of our investment securities. Total interest expense increased by $224,000, or 17.9 percent, to $1.5 million, for the three months ended December 31, 2015, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2015.  

Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis was $4.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, increasing $710,000, or 19.9 percent, from $3.6 million for the comparable three month period in fiscal 2015. The change for the three months ended December 31, 2015 primarily was the result of an increase in average balance of interest earning assets, which increased $80.9 million.  The net interest spread on an annualized tax-equivalent basis was at 2.61 percent and 2.45 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company's net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis increased to 2.72 percent as compared to 2.61 percent for the same three month period in fiscal 2015. "We continued to carry healthy levels of cash, which is a positive trend as we generate funding for the Company designed to position the Company to fuel increased loan originations.  During the first quarter we were able to add $115.5 million in gross loan originations to the balance sheet keeping pace with funding," commented Mr. Weagley. 

The 17.9 percent increase in interest expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to the first fiscal quarter in 2015, primarily reflects higher volumes of borrowings. The increased borrowings for the period are tied primarily to an interest rate swap that was executed to improve interest rate risk. The average cost of funds was 1.05 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 compared to 1.07 percent for the same three month period in fiscal 2015 and, on a linked sequential quarter basis, increased two basis points compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

Other Expense

Total other expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 amounted to $3.4 million, which was approximately $29,000 or 0.8 percent lower than other expense for the three months ended September 30, 2015.  The decrease in other expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was primarily related to a decrease in federal deposit insurance premium of $30,000 from the quarter ended September 30, 2015, as well as a $10,000 decrease in advertising, a $24,000 decrease in data processing expense, a $30,000 decrease in professional fees and a $33,000 decrease in other operating expense and a $18,000 change in other real estate owned expense. These decreases were partially offset by increases in employee salaries and benefits of $112,000 and occupancy expense of $4,000.   

The decrease in other expense for the three months ended December 31, 2015, when compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2014, was $236,000, or 6.5 percent. Decreases primarily reflected reductions in salaries and employee benefits of $229,000, a $1,000 decrease in occupancy expense, a $55,000 decrease in advertising expense, a $5,000 decrease in data processing expense and a $71,000 decrease in other operating expense.  These decreases were partially offset by increases of $33,000 in federal deposit insurance premium, $57,000 in professional fees and a $35,000 change in other real estate owned income/expense, net.

Loans

Total net loans were $461.5 million at December 31, 2015 compared to $391.3 million at September 30, 2015 for a net increase of $70.2 million.  The allowance for loan losses amounted to $4.6 million and $4.7 million at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, respectively. Average loans during the first quarter of fiscal 2016 totaled $420.6 million as compared to $389.5 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2015, representing an 8.0 percent increase.

At the end of first quarter of fiscal 2016, the loan portfolio remained weighted toward the core residential portfolio, with single-family residential real estate loans accounting for 45.5 percent of the loan portfolio, construction and development loans for 2.8 percent, commercial loans accounting for 38.6 percent, and consumer loans represented 13.1 percent of the loan portfolio at such date. Total gross loans increased $70.5 million, to $464.7 million at December 31, 2015 compared to $394.2 million at September 30, 2015.  The $70.5 million increase in the loan portfolio at December 31, 2015 compared to September 30, 2015, primarily reflected an increase of $71.0 million in commercial loans and a $5.0 million increase in construction and development loans. These increases were partially offset by a $3.6 million decrease in residential mortgage loans and a $1.9 million reduction in consumer loans at December 31, 2015 as compared to September 30, 2015.  

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company originated total new loan volume of $115.5 million, which was offset in part with payoffs, prepayments and maturities totaling $45.1 million.  The payoffs were primarily contained to the consumer and residential portfolios.   "Our current pipeline of loans has remained strong buttressed with our continued business development activity and overall growth in the portfolio has gained traction supported by slowing payoff activity.  We anticipate continued growth as we move forward in the 2016 fiscal year," commented Anthony C. Weagley.

At December 31, 2015, the Company had $85.2 million in overall undisbursed loan commitments, which consisted primarily of unused commercial lines of credit, home equity lines of credit and available usage from active construction facilities.   Included in the overall undisbursed commitments are the Company's "Approved, Accepted but Unfunded" pipeline, which includes approximately $14.0 million in construction and $31.8 million in commercial real estate loans, $7.3 million in commercial term loans and lines of credit and $1.4 million in residential mortgage loans expected to fund over the next 90 days.

Asset Quality

Non-accrual loans were $795,000 at December 31, 2015, as compared to $1.4 million at September 30, 2015 and $2.3 million at December 31, 2014.  Other real estate owned, ("OREO") was $1.2 million at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015 and $1.5 million at December 31, 2014, respectively.  Total performing troubled debt restructured loans were $1.6 million at December 31, 2015, $1.1 million at September 30, 2015 and $1.0 million at December 31, 2014, respectively.  The $493,000 increase in performing troubled debt restructured loans at December 31, 2015 compared to September 30, 2015 was due to two commercial loans to one borrower, with an outstanding balance of approximately $493,000, being returned to accruing status during the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

At December 31, 2015, non-performing assets totaled $2.0 million, or 0.27 percent of total assets, as compared with $2.6 million, or 0.39 percent, at September 30, 2015 and $3.8 million, or 0.63 percent, at December 31, 2014.  The decrease from December 31, 2014 reflects the Company's continued diligence to satisfactorily work out certain problem assets.  The portfolio of remaining non-accrual loans at December 31, 2015 was comprised of seven residential real estate loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $609,000, four consumer loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $174,000 and one construction and development loan with an outstanding balance of $12,000 that were on non-accrual status at December 31, 2015.

(1) Five loans totaling approximately $422,000 or (53.1%) of the total non-accrual loan balance were making payments at December 31, 2015. 
(2) Annualized.
               

The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2015 amounted to approximately $4.6 million, or 0.98 percent of total loans, compared to $4.7 million, or 1.18 percent of total loans at September 30, 2015. The Company had no provision for loan losses during the quarter ended December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015 and $90,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2014.  Provision expense was lower during the quarter ended December 31, 2015 due to a decline in charge-offs history during the quarter ended December 31, 2015 and the unallocated portion of the reserve.  However, given the recent loan growth and anticipated loan growth in subsequent quarters, the Company expects to incur charges to provision expense in future periods to raise the allowance for loan losses commensurate with loan growth and other risk factors. 

Capital

At December 31, 2015, our total shareholders' equity amounted to $82.7 million, or 11.37 percent of total assets compared to $81.4 million at September 30, 2015.  The Company's book value per common share was $12.60 at December 31, 2015, compared to $12.41 at September 30, 2015.

At December 31, 2015, the Bank's common equity tier 1 ratio was 13.94 percent, tier 1 leverage ratio was 10.43 percent, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 13.94 percent and the total risk-based capital ratio was 14.85 percent.  At September 30, 2015, the Bank's common equity tier 1 ratio was 15.90 percent, tier 1 leverage ratio was 10.80 percent, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 15.90 percent and the total risk-based capital ratio was 16.99 percent.  At December 31, 2015, the Bank was in compliance with all applicable regulatory capital requirements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Reported amounts are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). The Company's management believes that the supplemental non-GAAP information provided in this press release is utilized by market analysts and others to evaluate a Company's financial condition and, therefore, that such information is useful to investors. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures presented by other companies.

The Company's other income is presented in the table below including and excluding net investment securities gains. The Company's management believes that many investors desire to evaluate other income without regard for such gains.

Other income, excluding net investment securities gains$  427 $  561 $  495 $  479 $  485 

"Efficiency ratio" is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as other expense, excluding certain non-core items, as a percentage of net interest income on a tax equivalent basis plus other income, excluding net securities gains, calculated as follows:

Efficiency ratio 71.3% 73.9% 69.0% 76.6% 87.5%
                
      
(1) Included in non-core items are costs which include expenses related to the Company's corporate restructuring initiatives, such as professional fees, litigation and settlement costs, severance costs, external payroll development costs  related to such restructuring initiatives. The Company believes these adjustments are necessary to provide the most accurate measure of core operating results as a means to evaluate comparative results.

The Company's efficiency ratio, calculated on a GAAP basis without excluding net investment securities gains and without deducting non-core items, from other expense follows:

For the quarter ended:12/31/15
 9/30/15
 6/30/15
 3/31/15
 12/31/14
 
Efficiency ratio on a GAAP basis 70.4% 73.9% 67.6% 72.7% 87.2%
      

Net interest margin, which is non-interest income as a percentage of average interest-earning assets, is presented on a fully tax equivalent ("TE") basis as we believe this non-GAAP measure is the preferred industry measurement for this item.  The TE basis adjusts GAAP interest income and yields for the tax benefit of income on certain tax-exempt investments using the federal statutory rate of 34% for each period presented.  Below is a reconciliation of GAAP net interest income to the TE basis and the related GAAP basis and TE net interest margins for the periods presented:
