HOQUIAM, Wash., Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Timberland Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSBK) ("Timberland" or "the Company") today reported that net income increased 22% to $10.15 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2016 from $8.29 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015.  Earnings per diluted common share ("EPS") increased 22% to $1.43 for fiscal year 2016 from $1.17 for the prior fiscal year.

Timberland also reported net income of $2.70 million, or $0.38 per diluted common share, for its fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2016.  This compares to net income of $2.55 million, or $0.36 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, and net income of $2.96 million, or $0.42 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, which quarter received the benefit of a $1.53 million (pre-tax) loan loss provision recapture.

Timberland's Board of Directors declared a $0.09 per common share quarterly cash dividend payable on November 30, 2016, to shareholders of record on November 16, 2016.

"Fiscal year 2016 marked the 6th consecutive year the Company increased net income, earnings per share, return on equity and return on assets," stated Michael R. Sand, President and CEO.  "We have continued to prudently grow the balance sheet and, during the current quarter, for the first time exceeded $900 million in total assets.  We elected to prepay a $15 million FHLB borrowing on the last day of the fiscal year which reduced year end assets to $891 million, but more importantly reduced interest expense by $54,000 per month.  We have two additional high-cost $15 million FHLB borrowings maturing within the next 12 months.  The first borrowing matures on August 1st and the second on September 1, 2017.  We look forward to their impending maturities since the interest on these two borrowings, and the borrowing that was prepaid at fiscal year end, accounted for slightly less than 50% of our 2016 fiscal year total interest expense."

Net Interest Margin

  • Net interest margin ("NIM") increased to 3.88% for the 2016 fiscal year from 3.80% for the prior fiscal year; and
  • NIM remained strong at 3.77% for the current quarter (NIM would have been 3.82% without the $138,000 pre-payment penalty on our $15.00 million FHLB borrowing, which was partially offset by the collection of $38,000 of non-accrual interest during the quarter.)

Operating Results

Operating revenue (net interest income before provision for loan losses, plus non-interest income excluding gains or losses on the sale of investment securities and other than temporary impairment ("OTTI") charges on investment securities) increased 14% for the 2016 fiscal year to $41.86 million from $36.77 million for Timberland's 2015 fiscal year.  For the current quarter operating revenue increased 14% to $11.06 million from $9.70 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and increased 7% from $10.37 million for the preceding quarter.

Net interest income increased 13% to $30.80 million for the 2016 fiscal year from $27.28 million for the prior fiscal year.  Net interest income for the current quarter increased 11% to $7.81 million from $7.03 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and increased 2% from $7.62 million for the preceding quarter.  During the current quarter, net interest income was reduced by a $138,000 pre-payment penalty incurred due to Timberland's prepayment of a $15.00 million FHLB borrowing.  The borrowing was prepaid on September 30, 2016, and eliminated future interest expense of approximately $54,000 per month.  Two additional high-cost $15.00 million borrowings mature during Timberland's 2017 fiscal year.

Timberland's net interest margin for the year ended September 30, 2016, increased to 3.88% from 3.80% for the year ended September 30, 2015.  The net interest margin for the current quarter was 3.77% compared to 3.83% for the preceding quarter and 3.76% for the comparable quarter one year ago.  The net interest margin for the current quarter was reduced by approximately seven basis points due to the pre-payment penalty associated with prepaying an FHLB borrowing.  Also impacting the net interest margin was the collection of $38,000 of non-accrual interest, which increased the net interest margin by approximately two basis points during the current quarter.

Non-interest income for fiscal year 2016 increased 14% to $10.89 million from $9.52 million for the prior fiscal year.  Non-interest income increased 13% to $3.11 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, from $2.75 million for the preceding quarter, and increased 17% from $2.66 million for the comparable quarter one year ago.  The increase in non-interest income for the current quarter compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to increased ATM and debit card interchange transaction fees, increased service charges on deposits and an increase in the gain on sale of loans, which was partially offset by an increase in OTTI charges on investment securities.  The increase in ATM and debit card interchange transaction fees was primarily due to a one-time $262,000 incentive payment received from Timberland's debit card issuer for meeting certain sales and retention targets since the 2014 conversion to the new card issuer.  The increase in gain on sale of loans was primarily due to an increase in the dollar volume of fixed-rate one- to- four family loans and U.S. Small Business Administration ("SBA") loans sold during the current quarter.  Increased fee income from commercial checking accounts was the primary reason for the quarter's increased service charges on deposits.  The increase in OTTI expense was primarily due to the recognition of additional credit loss on three private label residential mortgage-backed securities.

For fiscal year 2016, total (non-interest) operating expense increased 3% to $26.64 million from $25.84 million for the prior fiscal year.  Total operating expenses for the current quarter increased 6% to $6.96 million from $6.57 million for the preceding quarter and increased 4% from $6.69 million for the comparable quarter one year ago.  The increased expenses for the current quarter compared to the preceding quarter were primarily due to a $192,000 increase in salaries and employee benefits expense, a $57,000 increase in premises and equipment expense, a $50,000 increase in ATM and debit card processing expense, and smaller increases in several other categories.  The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense was primarily due to the hiring of additional lending and operations personnel.  Also contributing to the increase in salaries and employee benefits expense was a decrease in loan originations during the current quarter compared to the prior quarter and a corresponding reduction in the amount of loan origination fees collected.  Under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the portion of a loan origination fee that is attributable to the estimated employee costs to generate the loan is recorded as a reduction of salaries and employee benefits expense.  The increase in premises and equipment expense was primarily due to an increase in building and equipment related maintenance costs.  The increase in ATM and debit card expenses was primarily related to the recognition of costs associated with the Bank's upcoming conversion to EMV chip cards.  The efficiency ratio for the current quarter was 63.77% compared to 63.37% for the preceding quarter and 69.09% for the comparable quarter one year ago.  The efficiency ratio for fiscal year 2016 improved to 63.89% from 70.22% for fiscal year 2015.

The provision for income taxes for fiscal year 2016 increased $709,000 to $4.90 million from $4.19 million for fiscal year 2015, primarily due to higher pre-tax income. The effective tax rate was 32.6% for fiscal year 2016 compared to 33.6% for fiscal year 2015.  The provision for income taxes for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 increased to $1.26 million from $1.25 million for the preceding quarter, primarily due to higher pre-tax income.  Also affecting the comparison between the current and immediately preceding quarter was a deferred tax adjustment, which reduced income tax expense by $58,000 for the current quarter.  The effective tax rate was 31.7% for the current quarter compared to 32.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Balance Sheet Management

Total assets increased 9% to $891.39 million at September 30, 2016 from $815.82 million at September 30, 2015.  The increase was primarily due to a $58.87 million increase in net loans receivable and a $16.65 million increase in cash and cash equivalents.  These increases, as well as the prepayment of a $15.00 million FHLB borrowing on September 30, 2016, were primarily funded by an $82.62 million increase in deposits during the fiscal year.  For the current quarter, total assets increased 4%, or $33.25 million, from $858.14 million at June 30, 2016.  The increase in assets for the current quarter was primarily due to a $19.77 million increase in cash and cash equivalents and a $15.78 million increase in net loans receivable.  These increases, as well as the prepayment of the $15.00 million FHLB advance, were primarily funded by a $46.15 million increase in deposits. 

Liquidity, as measured by cash and cash equivalents, CDs held for investment and available for sale investments securities, was 20.6% of total liabilities at September 30, 2016, compared to 18.7% at June 30, 2016, and 19.6% one year ago. 

Net loans receivable increased $15.78 million, or 2%, to $663.15 million at September 30, 2016, from $647.37 million at June 30, 2016. The increase was primarily due to a $17.64 million increase in commercial real estate loans, a $10.63 million increase in multi-family loans, a $4.46 million increase in custom and owner/builder one- to four-family construction loans, a $2.54 million decrease in the undisbursed portion of construction loans in progress, and a $1.51 million increase in one- to four-family mortgage loans.  These increases were partially offset by a $12.06 million decrease in commercial construction loans, a $5.50 million decrease in multi-family construction loans, a $2.45 million decrease in land loans, and a $1.73 million decrease in commercial business loans.

Total deposits increased $82.62 million, or 12%, to $761.53 million at September 30, 2016, from $678.91 million at September 30, 2015.  The increase was primarily due to a $30.90 million increase in non-interest bearing checking account balances, a $23.18 million increase in N.O.W. checking account balances, a $21.52 million increase in money market account balances and a $13.16 million increase in savings account balances.  These increases were partially offset by a $6.13 million decrease in certificates of deposit account balances.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures.  Timberland believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with information useful in understanding the Company's financial performance; however, readers of this report are urged to review these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP results as reported.

Financial measures that exclude intangible assets are non-GAAP measures.  To provide investors with a broader understanding of capital adequacy, Timberland provides non-GAAP financial measures for tangible common equity, along with the GAAP measure.  Tangible common equity is calculated as shareholders' equity less goodwill.  In addition, tangible assets are total assets less goodwill.

The following table provides a reconciliation of ending shareholders' equity (GAAP) to ending tangible shareholders' equity (non-GAAP), and ending total assets (GAAP) to ending tangible assets (non-GAAP).
