Share:

BRISTOL, PA / ACCESSWIRE / August 11, 2020 / William Penn Bancorp, Inc. ("William Penn" or the "Company") (OTC:WMPN), the parent company of William Penn Bank (the "Bank"), today announced its financial results for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2020. William Penn recorded a net loss of $1.3 million and net income of $1.3 million, or ($0.32) and $0.33 per diluted share, for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2020, respectively, compared to net income of $1.3 million and $3.8 million, or $0.33 and $0.94 per diluted share, for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2019, respectively. Net income for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2020 included $2.5 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, of merger related expenses net of the gain on bargain purchase associated with the acquisitions of Washington Savings Bank ("Washington") and Fidelity Savings and Loan Association of Bucks County ("Fidelity") on May 1, 2020.

Kenneth J. Stephon, William Penn's President and CEO, stated "Despite a challenging operating environment related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued to make progress on our strategic priorities during the year. We successfully completed the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity, organically grew deposits, and continued to invest in the growth of our business. In fiscal 2020, we opened a new branch in Collingswood, New Jersey and added five new offices through the two acquisitions, bringing our branch network up to twelve full-service locations. We continue to make strategic investments in technology and talent to help us continue to grow and serve our customers going forward. We are currently working to prudently deploy the excess cash we hold on our balance sheet from the two acquisitions to improve our asset mix and augment earnings."

Highlights for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2020 are as follows:

  • William Penn completed the acquisition of Washington and Fidelity on May 1, 2020, which increased total loans by $177.5 million and total deposits by $202.0 million.
  • The Company opened a new branch located in Collingswood, New Jersey that is currently offering curbside assistance.
  • The Company appointed Jonathan Logan to the role of Chief Financial Officer, Gregory Garcia to the role of Chief Operating Officer, and Jill M. Ross to the role of Chief Retail & Commercial Officer.
  • William Penn increased credit reserves amidst the uncertain economic environment and recorded a $605 thousand provision for credit losses during the quarter ended June 30, 2020.
  • During the year ended June 30, 2020, William Penn recorded net income of $1.3 million, or $0.33 per diluted share.
  • Tangible book value per share measured $20.12 as of June 30, 2020, compared to $17.74 as of June 30, 2019, an increase of $2.38, or 13.4%.
  • Net interest income increased $1.1 million, or 33.3%, and $569 thousand, or 4.0%, for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same periods in the prior year.
  • Non-interest income for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2020 includes a $746 thousand gain on bargain purchase associated with the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity.
  • Non-interest expense for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2020 includes $3.3 million of merger related expenses associated with the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity.
  • Asset quality metrics continued to remain strong with non-performing assets to total assets of 0.46% as of June 30, 2020. Our allowance for loan losses totaled $3.5 million, or 1.26% of total loans, excluding acquired loans, as of June 30, 2020.

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased $321.1 million, or 77.2%, to $736.9 million at June 30, 2020, from $415.8 million of total assets at June 30, 2019. The increase in total assets can primarily be attributed to a $244.9 million increase from the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity.

Cash and cash equivalents increased $56.7 million, or 216.9%, to $82.9 million at June 30, 2020, from $26.2 million at June 30, 2019. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily driven by cash acquired as part of the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity and organic deposit growth, partially offset by purchases of investment securities.

Investments increased $67.5 million, or 298.9%, to $90.0 million at June 30, 2020, compared to $22.5 million at June 30, 2019. We focus on maintaining a high-quality investment portfolio that provides a steady stream of cash flows both in the current and in rising interest rate environments.

Loans increased $182.6 million, or 56.0%, to $508.6 million at June 30, 2020, from $326.0 million at June 30, 2019. The increase in loans can primarily be attributed to the $177.5 million of loans acquired as part of the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity. During the quarter ended June 30, 2020, William Penn provided $2.4 million in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans for 56 new and existing customers. William Penn also granted eligible loan modifications in the form of payment deferral of principal and interest for $49.8 million of existing loans under the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.

Deposits increased $278.9 million, or 99.2%, to $560.1 million at June 30, 2020, from $281.2 million at June 30, 2019. Deposit growth was primarily achieved through $202.0 million of deposits acquired from Washington and Fidelity on May 1, 2020 with the remaining increase attributed to strong organic growth. Excluding deposits acquired in the mergers, organic growth produced an increase in deposits of $76.9 million, or 27.3%.

Borrowings increased $14.5 million, or 29.8%, to $64.9 million at June 30, 2020, from $50.0 million at June 30, 2019. The increase in borrowings was primarily due to FHLB advances acquired from Washington and Fidelity.

Stockholders' equity increased $19.8 million, or 25.8%, to $96.4 million at June 30, 2020, from $76.6 million at June 30, 2019. The increase in stockholders' equity was primarily due to $20.5 million of equity recorded at fair value in connection with the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity and $1.3 million of net income during the year ended June 30, 2020, partially offset by $1.9 million of dividends paid to common shareholders during the year ended June 30, 2020.

Net Interest Income

For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, net interest income was $4.5 million, an increase of $1.1 million, or 33.3%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to an increase in interest-earning assets as a result of the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity. The net interest margin totaled 3.06% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 as compared to 3.57% for the same period in 2019. The decrease in the net interest margin is consistent with the recent decrease in interest rates and current margin compression primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the economy and interest rate environment.

For the year ended June 30, 2020, William Penn reported net interest income of $14.8 million, an increase of $569 thousand, or 4.0%, from the year ended June 30, 2019. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to an increase in interest-earning assets as a result of the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity on May 1, 2020. Our net interest margin totaled 3.27% for the year ended June 30, 2020, from 3.76% for 2019.

Non-interest Income

For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, non-interest income totaled $1.1 million, an increase of $664 thousand, or 139.2%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The increase was primarily due to a $746 thousand gain on bargain purchase recorded in connection with the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity. This increase in non-interest income was partially offset by a $237 thousand gain on sale of loans recorded during the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

For the year ended June 30, 2020, non-interest income totaled $2.2 million, an increase of $1.0 million, or 91.7%, from the year ended June 30, 2019. The increase was primarily due to a $746 thousand gain on bargain purchase recorded in connection with the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity and a $98 thousand increase in the gain on sale of investment securities.

Non-interest Expense

For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, non-interest expense totaled $6.8 million, an increase of $4.4 million, or 184.7%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily due to $3.3 million of merger related expenses associated with the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity, as well as a $540 thousand increase in salaries and employee benefits due to the addition of new employees from the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity.

For the year ended June 30, 2020, non-interest expense totaled $15.4 million, an increase of $4.9 million, or 47.3%, from the year ended June 30, 2019. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily due to $3.3 million of merger related expenses associated with the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity, as well as a $688 thousand increase in occupancy and equipment expense due to the addition of premises and equipment from the acquisitions of Washington and Fidelity.

Income Taxes

For the year ended June 30, 2020, we recorded an income tax benefit of $387 thousand, reflecting an effective tax benefit of 41.1%, compared to a provision for income taxes of $1.1 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 22.0%, for the year ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in the effective tax rate in the year ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period a year ago is primarily due to the timing of the reversal of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance related to the Company's investment in bank-owned life insurance.

Asset Quality

Our ratio of non-performing assets to total assets decreased to 0.46% as of June 30, 2020 compared to 0.48% as of June 30, 2019. Net charge-offs for the year ended June 30, 2020, totaled $257 thousand, or 6 basis points of average loans, compared to net charge-offs of $17 thousand, or 1 basis point of average loans, for the year ended June 30, 2019. As a result of the continued economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recorded a $626 thousand provision for loan losses during the year ended June 30, 2020 compared to an $88 thousand provision for loan losses during the prior year. Our allowance for loan losses totaled $3.5 million, or 1.26% of total loans, excluding acquired loans, as of June 30, 2020, compared to $3.2 million, or 1.24% of total loans, excluding acquired loans, as of June 30, 2019.

Capital

The Bank's capital position remains strong relative to current regulatory requirements. The Bank continues to have substantial liquidity that has been retained in cash or invested in high quality government-backed securities. As of June 30, 2020, William Penn's tangible capital to tangible assets totaled 12.36%. In addition, at June 30, 2020, we had the ability to borrow up to $223.0 million from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh. The federal regulators issued a final rule, effective January 1, 2020, that set the elective community bank leverage ratio at 9% tier 1 capital to average total consolidated assets. William Penn Bank has elected to follow this alternative framework. As of June 30, 2020, William Penn Bank had a community bank leverage ratio of 13.67% and is considered well-capitalized under the prompt corrective action framework.

William Penn announced the appointment of Jonathan Logan as Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of the Company and the Bank. Mr. Logan is a Certified Public Accountant who started his career at Ernst & Young before joining Beneficial Bancorp, Inc., where he held progressively responsible positions including serving as Corporate Controller.
