Earnings Driven by Loan Growth and Higher Net Interest Income

PAOLI, Pa., Jan. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Malvern Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLVF) (the "Company"), parent company of Malvern Federal Savings Bank ("Malvern" or the "Bank"), today reported operating results for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2016.  Net income amounted to $1.2 million, or $0.18 per fully diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, a decrease of $174,000, or 13.0 percent, as compared with net income of $1.3 million, or $0.21 per common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.  Results for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 were favorably impacted by the tax position of the Company prior to the full recognition of the Bank's deferred tax asset as of September 30, 2016.  On a fully taxable basis, net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 would have been $1.1 million, and earnings per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 would have been $0.17.

"Thanks to the consistent effort of our talented management team across the organization, the Company produced another quarter of profitability driven by asset deployment of new loans," commented President & CEO, Anthony C Weagley.  "The Bank is creating value from the benefits resulting from all the hard work from the past," he added. "We're improving in nearly every measure of profitability and asset quality.  We have tremendous momentum."

Joe Gangemi, Chief Financial Officer of Malvern Bancorp, Inc. added, "In addition to our focus on revenue growth, the Company remains committed to the disciplined management of operating expenses, continued resolution of legacy special assets, prudent underwriting of new loans, and conservative asset liability management.  We remain well capitalized and are eager to grow customer relationships throughout our markets."

  • The Company originated $133.2 million in new loans in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, which was offset in part by $37.9 million in participations, payoffs, prepayments and maturities from its portfolio, resulting in net portfolio growth of $95.3 million; new loan originations consisted of $8.1 million in residential mortgage loans, $111.6 million in commercial loans, $11.3 million in construction and development loans and $2.3 million in consumer loans.

Net Interest Income

For the three months ended December 31, 2016, total interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis increased $1.4 million, or 24.3 percent, to $7.2 million, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2015. Interest income rose in the quarter ended December 31, 2016, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2016, primarily due to a $191.8 million increase in the average balance of our loans.  Total interest expense increased by $390,000, or 26.4 percent, to $1.9 million, for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to the same period in fiscal 2016.  

Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis was $5.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, increasing $1.0 million, or 23.6 percent, from $4.3 million for the comparable three month period in fiscal 2016. The change for the three months ended December 31, 2016 primarily was the result of an increase in the average balance of interest earning assets, which increased $171.8 million.  The net interest spread on an annualized tax-equivalent basis was at 2.50 percent and 2.61 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company's net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis decreased to 2.64 percent as compared to 2.72 percent for the same three month period in fiscal 2016.

"Liquidity and growth in deposits continued with total cash available for funding amounting to $63.3 million at period end.   We continued to carry excess funding to meet forward asset deployment.  This continues to have a dampening effect on margin and may continue in the coming quarters," commented Mr. Weagley. 

The 26.4 percent increase in interest expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2016 primarily reflected higher volumes of borrowings which are part of the hedging activity strategies executed to mitigate interest rate risk. The average cost of funds was 1.07 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 compared to 1.05 percent for the same three month period in fiscal 2016 and, on a linked sequential quarter basis, decreased one basis point compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

Other Income

Other income decreased $105,000, or 18.8 percent, for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 compared with the same period in fiscal 2016.  The decrease was primarily as a result of a $131,000 decrease in net gains on sales of investment securities and a decrease in earnings on bank-owned insurance of $2,000.  The decrease was partially offset by an increase in service charges and other fees of $12,000, an increase of $5,000 in rental income and an increase of $11,000 in net gain on sale of loans.  Excluding net securities gains and losses, a non-GAAP measure, the Company would have recorded other income of $453,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2016 compared to $427,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2015, an increase of $26,000, or 6.1 percent.

Other Expense

Total other expense for the three months ended December 31, 2016, increased $145,000, or 4.2 percent, when compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2015. The increase primarily reflected increases in salaries and employee benefits of $213,000, a $71,000 increase in occupancy expense, a $21,000 increase in advertising expense, a $5,000 increase in data processing expense, and a $29,000 increase in other operating expense.  The increases in salary and benefits were attributed to increases in our workforce.  These increases for the quarter were partially offset by decreases of $196,000 in the federal deposit insurance premium due to the new regulatory calculation.

Loans

Total net loans were $668.4 million at December 31, 2016 compared to $574.2 million at September 30, 2016, for a net increase of $94.3 million.  The allowance for loan losses amounted to $6.2 million and $5.4 million at December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, respectively.  Average loans during the first quarter of fiscal 2017 totaled $612.4 million as compared to $420.6 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2016, representing a 45.6 percent increase.

At the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the loan portfolio remained weighted toward commercial real estate and the core residential portfolio, with single-family residential real estate loans accounting for 30.5 percent of the loan portfolio.  Construction and development loans amounted to 5.7 percent with commercial loans accounting for 56.6 percent, and consumer loans representing 7.2 percent of the loan portfolio at such date.   Total gross loans increased $95.3 million, to $673.7 million at December 31, 2016 compared to $578.4 million at September 30, 2016.  The increase in the loan portfolio at December 31, 2016 compared to September 30, 2016, primarily reflected an increase of $91.5 million in commercial loans and a $9.8 million increase in construction and development loans. These increases were partially offset by a $3.5 million decrease in residential mortgage loans and a $2.5 million reduction in consumer loans at December 31, 2016 as compared to September 30, 2016.  

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company originated total new loan volume of $133.2 million, which was offset in part by participations, payoffs, prepayments and maturities totaling $37.9 million.  The payoffs were primarily confined to the consumer and residential portfolios.   "We continue to experience strong loan demand throughout our footprint, and to maintain pace with our core objectives," said Mr. Weagley.

At December 31, 2016 , the Company had $110.7 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 $9.0 million in construction and $58.0 million in commercial real estate loans, $9.6 million in commercial term loans and lines of credit and $1.9 million in residential mortgage loans expected to fund over the next 90 days.

Asset Quality

Non-accrual loans were $1.8 million at December 31, 2016, as compared to $1.6 million at September 30, 2016 and $795,000 at December 31, 2015.  Other real estate owned ("OREO") was zero at December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, and $1.2 million at December 31, 2015, respectively.  Total performing troubled debt restructured loans were $1.4 million at December 31, 2016, $2.0 million at September 30, 2016 and $1.6 million at December 31, 2015, respectively.  The decrease in performing troubled debt restructured loans at December 31, 2016 compared to September 30, 2016 was primarily due to one commercial loan, with an outstanding balance of approximately $886,000, being sold during the first quarter of fiscal 2017, as well as a commercial loan with an outstanding balance of $386,000 being paid off.  These decreases were offset by two residential mortgage loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of $655,000 being classified as a performing TDR during first quarter of fiscal 2017.  

At December 31, 2016, non-performing assets totaled $2.0 million, or 0.22 percent of total assets, as compared with $2.3 million, or 0.28 percent, at September 30, 2016 and $2.0 million, or 0.27 percent, at December 31, 2015.  The portfolio of non-accrual loans at December 31, 2016 was comprised of 13 residential real estate loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $1.4 million, one commercial real estate loan with an outstanding balance of $192,000 and seven consumer loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $254,000.

______________

  1. 13 loans totaling approximately $872,000 or 47.6% of the total non-accrual loan balance were making payments at December 31, 2016. 
  2. Annualized.

The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2016 amounted to approximately $6.2 million, or 0.92 percent of total loans, compared to $5.4 million, or 0.94 percent of total loans, at September 30, 2016 and $4.6 million, or 0.98 percent of total loans, at December 31, 2015. The Company had a $660,000 provision for loan losses during the quarter ended December 31, 2016 compared to zero for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, respectively.  Provision expense was higher during the quarter ended December 31, 2016 due to an increase in loan growth.

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 to such gains.

Other income, excluding net investment
securities gains
$   453 $   471 $   430 $   440 $   427

"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:

(dollars in thousands)          
For the quarter ended: 12/31/16 9/30/16 6/30/16 3/31/16 12/31/15

  Total $   5,745   $   5,554   $   5,277   $   5,006   $   4,708  
           
Efficiency ratio   61.6 %   67.7 %   64.0 %   66.2 %   71.3 %
______________________          
(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, and 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: 12/31/16 9/30/16 6/30/16 3/31/16 12/31/15
Efficiency ratio on a GAAP basis 62.7 % 66.7 % 62.1 % 67.2 % 70.4 %

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.
