Share:

SEATTLE, April 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sound Financial Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:SFBC), the holding company (the "Company") for Sound Community Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $1.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, or diluted earnings per share of $0.62, as compared to net income of $1.2 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.46, for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and $1.4 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.54, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

The Company also announced today that the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend on Company common stock of $0.14 per share, payable on May 25, 2018 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 10, 2018.

"We continue to achieve good growth in both loans and deposits.  The significant increase in non-interest bearing deposits during the quarter helped us hold down our cost of funds despite the rising interest rate environment," said Laurie Stewart, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank.  "This enabled us to maintain a strong net interest margin," concluded Ms. Stewart.

  • Nonperforming assets decreased 11.4% to $2.6 million at March 31, 2018, from $2.9 million at December 31, 2017 and decreased 43.9% from $4.3 million at March 31, 2017;
  • Provision for loan losses was $100,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $250,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017.  There was no provision for the quarter ended March 31, 2017; and
  • Provision for income taxes was $423,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $1.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and $760,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Operating Results

Net interest income increased $125,000, or 2.0%, to $6.5 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $6.3 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and increased $672,000, or 11.6%, from $5.8 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The change from the prior quarter was primarily a result of higher average loan balances due to loan originations exceeding loan repayments during the period.  The change from the comparable period one year ago was primarily due to the increase in the average balances on loans and cash and cash equivalents, partially offset by the increase in the average balance of deposits and the rise in the cost of borrowings.  Average loan balances were $549.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 compared to $532.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and $495.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The average yield on loans was 5.27% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 compared to 5.31% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and 5.20% for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The investment portfolio declined due to principal repayments on securities exceeding purchases during the first quarter of 2018 resulting in higher cash balances at March 31, 2018.  Interest income earned on these cash balances has increased as interest rates have increased over the past year.

Interest expense increased $92,000, or 9.9%, to $1.0 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $931,000 during the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and increased $228,000, or 28.7%, compared to $795,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  Interest expense on deposits decreased $12,000, or 1.5%, to $810,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $822,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and increased $107,000, or 15.2%, from $703,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The decrease from the sequential quarter was primarily due to the $12.2 million, or 16.8%, increase in noninterest-bearing deposits during the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  The average cost of deposits was 0.63% for both the first quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2017 and was 0.60% for the three months ended March 31, 2017.  The increase from the same quarter one year ago was a result of an increase in deposits of $48.4 million, or 10.1%, to $529.2 million at March 31, 2018 compared to $480.8 million at March 31, 2017.  The cost of borrowings increased $104,000, or 95.4%, to $213,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2018, from $109,000 during the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and increased $121,000, or 131.5%, from $92,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The increased cost of borrowings was driven by upward changes in the federal funds rate.  Our weighted-average cost of borrowings was 1.73% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to 1.43% for the fourth quarter of 2017 and 0.88% for the first quarter of 2017.  The change in the average balance of borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines ("FHLB") also contributed to the increased expense from the same period one year ago.

The net interest margin was 4.32% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to 4.37% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and 4.28% for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The modest decline compared to the prior quarter was primarily the result of lower average loan yields.  The increase compared to the year ago period was primarily due to higher average balances and loan yields.

We recorded a provision for loan losses of $100,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $250,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and no provision for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The decrease from the quarter ended December 31, 2017 was primarily due to a reduction in nonperforming loans.  The increase from the same period a year ago was primarily due to the increase in the balance of the loan portfolio.

Noninterest income increased $38,000, or 3.6%, to $1.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and increased $95,000, or 9.5% for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The increase from the previous quarter was primarily the result of a $54,000 increase in mortgage servicing income, partially offset by a $20,000 decrease in net gain on sales of loans.  The increase in mortgage servicing income was due to a three basis point increase in the market value of the servicing rights.  The decline in the net gain on sale of loans was due to a lower volume of loans originated and sold into the secondary market.  The increase in noninterest income compared to a year ago was the result of an increase of $161,000 in net gain on sales of loans partially offset by decreases in service charges and fee income totaling $51,000.  The decrease in service charges and fee income included a decrease in loan fees partially offset by an increase in early withdrawal penalties on certificates of deposit.  The decrease in loan fees was primarily due to the deferral of additional loan fees in the current quarter compared to the same period in 2017.  Penalties received as a result of the early withdrawal of certificates of deposit increased $15,000 in the first quarter of 2018 to $20,000 compared to $5,000 in the first quarter of 2017.

Noninterest expense increased $541,000, or 11.1%, to $5.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared to $4.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017.  The increase was primarily a result of salaries and benefits expense increasing $539,000 during the quarter.  This increase was attributed to normal year-end salary increases, the yearly bonus program and increased medical premiums. 

Noninterest expense increased $816,000, or 17.7% to $5.4 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018 compared to $4.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, primarily from higher salaries and benefits, operations, and occupancy expenses.  Salaries and benefits expense increased $450,000 compared to the first quarter of 2017 primarily due to an increase in the number of full-time equivalent employees as a result of the addition of our University Place and Belltown branches, as well as the opening of our loan production office in Sequim.  Operations expense increased $218,000 primarily due to a $124,000 provision for off-balance sheet commitments due to a loss on a loan sold with recourse and increases in audit fees and charitable contributions.

The efficiency ratio for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was 71.89%, compared to 66.16% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and 67.99% for the first quarter of 2017.  The increase in the efficiency ratio compared to the prior quarter and the year ago quarter was due primarily to an increase in salaries and benefits for both periods.

The provision for income taxes decreased $644,000, or 60.4% to $423,000 for the first quarter of 2018, compared to $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and decreased $337,000, or 44.3% compared to the first quarter of 2017.  The decrease for both periods was due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which was signed into law on December 22, 2017, which resulted in a $309,000 write-down of our deferred tax asset in the fourth quarter of 2017 and reduced our federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% for the first quarter of 2018.

Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management and Credit Quality

Total assets at March 31, 2018 were $659.5 million, compared to $645.2 million at December 31, 2017.  This increase was primarily a result of the increase in gross loans and higher cash balances.

Gross loans (excluding loans held-for-sale) totaled $560.0 million at March 31, 2018, compared to $548.6 million at December 31, 2017 and $489.3 million at March 31, 2017.  The largest increases in the loan portfolio compared to the prior quarter were in the commercial and multifamily loan portfolio, which increased $10.0 million or 4.7%, and the one- to four- family loan portfolio, which increased $4.9 million or 3.1%.  The largest increases in the loan portfolio compared to the year ago quarter were in the commercial and multifamily loan portfolio, which increased $36.3 million or 19.6%, the one- to four- family loan portfolio, which increased $17.3 million or 12.0%, and the commercial business loan portfolio, which increased $12.5 million or 49.6%.  At March 31, 2018, commercial and multifamily real estate loans accounted for approximately 39.4% of the gross loan portfolio and one- to four- family loans, including home equity loans, accounted for approximately 33.8% of the portfolio.  Consumer loans, consisting of manufactured homes, floating homes and other consumer loans accounted for approximately 9.3% of the portfolio at that date.  Construction and land loans accounted for approximately 10.8% of the portfolio and commercial business loans accounted for approximately 6.7% of the portfolio at March 31, 2018.

Cash and cash equivalents increased $4.0 million, or 6.6%, to $64.7 million at March 31, 2018, compared to $60.7 million at December 31, 2017 and increased $11.9 million, or 22.5% compared to March 31, 2017.  The increase from the prior quarter and one year ago was due to securities repayments in excess of purchases resulting in higher cash balances. 

Nonperforming assets ("NPAs"), which are comprised of non-accrual loans, nonperforming troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs"), other real estate owned ("OREO") and other repossessed assets, decreased $330,000, or 11.4%, to $2.6 million, or 0.39% of total assets, at March 31, 2018, compared to $2.9 million, or 0.45% of total assets, at December 31, 2017 and decreased $1.9 million, or 0.75% of total assets, from $4.3 million at March 31, 2017.

The following table summarizes the allowance for loan losses:

  For the Quarter Ended:

(Dollars in thousands, unaudited) 2018   2017   2017
Balance at beginning of period $ 5,241   $ 4,991   $ 4,822
Provision for loan losses during the period   100     250     -
Net (charge-offs)/recoveries during the period   (13)     -     16

Allowance for loan losses to total loans   0.95%     0.96%     0.99%
Allowance for loan losses to total nonperforming loans   276.78%     229.57%     143.26%
                 

The increase in the allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2018, compared to the prior quarter and the same period a year ago was due to the increase in the balance of the loan portfolio and minimal net loan charge-offs.  The gross loan portfolio increased $11.4 million or 2.1% and $70.7 million or 14.5% compared to December 31, 2017, and March 31, 2017, respectively.  Net charge-offs during the first quarter of 2018 totaled $13,000 compared to no net loan charge-offs/recoveries for the fourth quarter of 2017 and net loan recoveries of $16,000 for the first quarter of 2017.

The allowance for loan losses to total loans decreased slightly to 0.95% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 compared to 0.96% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and 0.99% for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The allowance for loan losses as a percent of nonperforming loans increased to 276.78% at March 31, 2018 compared to 229.57% at December 31, 2017 and increased from 143.26% at March 31, 2017.  The improvement in this ratio for both periods was due to a decrease in total nonperforming loans as we continue to grow our loans and improve the credit quality of our portfolio. 

Deposits increased 2.9% to $529.2 million at March 31, 2018, compared to $514.4 million at December 31, 2017 and $480.8 million at March 31, 2017.  The increase in deposits for the first quarter of 2018 compared to the sequential quarter was due to our continued focus on generating low cost deposits.  The increase in deposits in the first quarter compared to the same quarter last year was the result of organic growth and $14.5 million in deposits assumed in connection with our purchase of the University Place branch in June 2017.  Our noninterest-bearing deposit accounts increased $12.2 million, or 16.8%, to $84.3 million at March 31, 2018 compared to $72.1 million at year end 2017 and increased from $71.6 million at the end of the first quarter in 2017.  The growth in these low cost deposits has been a key contributor in keeping our cost of deposits down.     Borrowings decreased to $56.0 million at March 31, 2018, compared to $59.0 million at December 31, 2017 and increased from $25.6 million one year ago.  We utilized borrowings to supplement the growth in our loan portfolio over the past year.
