Share:

PAOLI, Pa., Jan. 31, 2018 (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, 2017.   Net income amounted to $403,000 or $0.06 per fully diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, a decrease of $570,000, or 58.6 percent, as compared with net income of $973,000, or $0.15 per fully diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. 

Malvern's financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2017 included one time charges to provision for income tax expense, to reduce the carrying value of deferred tax assets by $2.2 million or $0.34 per fully diluted common share.  This was required as a result of the reduction in corporate income tax rates to 21 percent in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("the Tax Act") enacted on December 22, 2017.  Generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") requires that the impact of the provisions of the Tax Act be accounted for in the period of enactment. Also during the current quarter, Malvern realized a gain on sale of real estate of approximately $900,000 (after-tax effect), or $0.14 per fully diluted common share.   

"Our top line revenue remained constant despite the extraordinary paydowns we experienced in our loan portfolio during the period.  Other aspects of operations were also positive and we feel we are well positioned to advance in 2018.  Our continued focus on client service has not changed course and it's a key factor in our continuing to gather customer relationships, fueling the business model focus and our resulting performance.  While the first fiscal quarter results were negatively impacted by the Tax Act, we look forward to the benefit of the lower effective corporate tax rate in the future," commented Anthony C. Weagley, President and Chief Executive Officer. 

Joseph Gangemi, Chief Financial Officer of Malvern Bancorp, Inc., added, "Malvern continues to build its liquidity pool to fuel future loan growth and the large cash balances did have a dampening effect on margins at a time when we had an unexpected decline in asset levels.  We see this trend reversing itself in future quarters."

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Return on average assets ("ROAA") was 0.15 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared to 0.47 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2016, and return on average equity ("ROAE") was 1.55 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared with 4.03 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2016. 
  • The Company originated $36.7 million in new loans in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, which was offset by $64.3 million in participations, payoffs, prepayments and maturities from its portfolio, resulting in a net portfolio decrease of $27.6 million over the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.  Paydown and Payoff activity was extraordinary and management does not see this as a continuing trend moving into the second fiscal quarter.  New loan originations in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 consisted of $7.7 million in residential mortgage loans, $18.8 million in commercial loans, $7.9 million in construction and development loans and $2.3 million in consumer loans.  
  • Non-performing assets ("NPAs") were 0.24 percent of total assets at December 31, 2017, compared to 0.22 percent at December 31, 2016 and 0.12 percent at September 30, 2017. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total non-performing loans was 326.1 percent at December 31, 2017, compared to 316.1 percent at December 31, 2016 and 694.1 percent at September 30, 2017.
  • The Company's ratio of shareholders' equity to total assets was 9.76 percent at December 31, 2017, compared to 11.05 percent at December 31, 2016, and 9.80 percent at September 30, 2017.
  • Book value per common share amounted to $15.70 at December 31, 2017, compared to $14.80 at December 31, 2016 and $15.60 at September 30, 2017. 
  • The efficiency ratio, a non-GAAP measure, was 63.6 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 on an annualized basis, compared to 61.6 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 and 55.4 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.
  • The Company's balance sheet reflected total asset growth of $11.8 million at December 31, 2017, compared to September 30, 2017, coupled with stable asset quality, and capital levels that exceeded regulatory standards for a well-capitalized institution.
  • The Company revised its estimated annual effective rate to reflect a change in the federal statutory rate from 35% to 21%, resulting from legislation that was enacted on December 22, 2017. The rate change is administratively effective at the beginning of our calendar year, using a blended rate for the annual period. As a result, the blended statutory tax rate for the year is 24.5%.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis was $6.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, increasing $1.1 million, or 20.8 percent, from $5.3 million for the comparable three-month period in fiscal 2017. The change for the three months ended December 31, 2017 primarily was the result of an increase in the average balance of interest earning assets, which increased $234.2 million.  For the quarter ended December 31, 2017, the Company's net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis decreased to 2.47 percent as compared to 2.64 percent for the same three-month period in fiscal 2017.

For the three months ended December 31, 2017, total interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis increased $2.4 million, or 33.0 percent, to $9.5 million, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2016.  Interest income rose in the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2017, primarily due to a $210.6 million increase in the average balance of our loans.  Total interest expense increased by $1.3 million, or 67.7 percent, to $3.1 million, for the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same period in fiscal 2017 due to the increase of $213.3 million in average funding sources. 

The 67.7 percent increase in interest expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was primarily due to an increase in deposits, as well as the interest expense associated with the Company's subordinated debt.  The average cost of funds was 1.37 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 compared to 1.07 percent for the same three-month period in fiscal 2017 and, on a linked sequential quarter basis, increased five basis points compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.  The increase in cost was primarily related to the increase in average volume, coupled with the increased expense related to the issuance of subordinated debt.

Other Expense

Total other expense for the three months ended December 31, 2017, increased $901,000, or 25.2 percent, when compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2016. The increase primarily reflected increases in salaries and employee benefits of $278,000, a $68,000 increase in occupancy expense, a $72,000 increase in the federal deposit insurance premium, a $3,000 increase in advertising expense, a $387,000 increase in professional fees, and a $117,000 increase in other operating expense.  The increase was offset by a $24,000 decrease in data processing expense. The increase in salaries and employee benefits primarily reflects higher compensation and related costs due to added staff to support overall franchise growth. The increase in occupancy expense was mainly due to expanded locations.  Professional fees increased for the period as a result of expense related to the increased legal and accounting fees.

At December 31, 2017, the Company had $121.1 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.   The Company's current "Approved, Accepted but Unfunded" pipeline, includes approximately $8.5 million in construction and $56.5 million in commercial real estate loans, $16.7 million in commercial term loans and lines of credit and $6.4 million in residential mortgage loans expected to fund over the next 90 days.

Asset Quality

Mr. Weagley noted that "Despite the increase in total non-performing loans for the current period, which are a result of legacy issues within the portfolio, we believe we can work out the current increase expeditiously.  We are well positioned from an asset quality perspective with continued improving trends and a low ratio of non-performing assets to total assets of 0.24 percent."

Non-accrual loans were $2.2 million at December 31, 2017 an increase of $1.2 million or 116.0 percent, as compared to $1.0 million at September 30, 2017 and $1.8 million at December 31, 2016.  Other real estate owned ("OREO") remained at zero at December 31, 2017, September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.   Total performing troubled debt restructured loans were $2.2 million at December 31, 2017, $2.2 million at September 30, 2017 and $1.4 million at December 31, 2016.  The significant component of the increase in non-performing loans at December 31, 2017 compared to September 30, 2017 was primarily due to one legacy commercial loan with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $796,000 moving to non-accrual.  No material loss to the corporation is anticipated, although no assurance can be made with respect to the outcome at this time. 

At December 31, 2017, non-performing assets totaled $2.6 million, or 0.24 percent of total assets, as compared with $1.2 million, or 0.12 percent, at September 30, 2017 and $2.0 million, or 0.22 percent, at December 31, 2016.  The portfolio of non-accrual loans at December 31, 2017 was comprised of twelve residential real estate loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $1.0 million, one commercial real estate loan with an outstanding balance of $796,000 and ten consumer loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $398,000.   

The following table presents the components of non-performing assets and other asset quality data for the periods indicated.

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.

(in thousands)          
For the quarter ended: 12/31/17 9/30/17 6/30/17 3/31/17 12/31/16
Other income $   1,711 $   532 $   814 $   542 $   453

Other income, excluding net investment securities gains and gains on sale of real estate $   525 $   501 $   440 $   484 $   453
                     

"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:

Total $ 6,918   $   7,230   $   6,873   $   6,527   $   5,745  
           
Efficiency ratio   63.6 %   52.3 %   57.0 %   57.4 %   61.6 %
______________________          
(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: 12/31/17   9/30/17   6/30/17   3/31/17   12/31/16  
Efficiency ratio on a GAAP basis 55.2 % 52.7 % 55.3 % 57.8 % 62.7 %
                     

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 Company revised its estimated annual effective rate to reflect a change in the federal statutory rate from 35% to 21%, resulting from legislation that was enacted on December 22, 2017.  The TE basis adjusts GAAP interest income and yields for the tax benefit of income on certain tax-exempt investments using the blended  statutory rate of 24.5% for the current period and 34% for each of the prior periods 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.
