BCSB Bancorp, Inc. Reports Earnings For The Quarter And Year Ended September 30, 2013

PR Newswire

BALTIMORE, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BCSB Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (BCSB), the holding company for Baltimore County Savings Bank, reported net income of $443,000, or $0.14 per basic and $0.13 per diluted share, for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, which represents the fourth quarter of its 2013 fiscal year, as compared to net income of $396,000, or $0.13 per basic share and $.12 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2012. On June 14, 2013, the Company announced that it entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with F.N.B. Corporation ("F.N.B."), whereby the Company will merge with and into F.N.B.  Also, the Company's subsidiary bank, Baltimore County Savings Bank, will merge with and into F.N.B.'s subsidiary bank, First National Bank of Pennsylvania.  The mergers are expected to close during the first quarter of calendar year 2014.

Net income for the year ended September 30, 2013 was $1,820,000, or $0.58 per basic share and $0.56 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $1,800,000, or $0.58 per basic share and $0.56 per diluted share for the year ended September 30, 2012.

During the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2013, earnings were favorably impacted by increases in non-interest income and decreases in provision for loan losses and non-interest expenses as compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year. Net interest income also increased slightly during the twelve months ended September 30, 2013 as compared to 2012. Earnings for the three months ended September 30, 2013 were negatively impacted by a decrease in net interest income as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. 

President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph J. Bouffard commented, "We have had several major accomplishments during the current fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. As stated above, we entered into a business combination agreement with F.N.B. Net income during fiscal 2013 has improved compared with fiscal 2012 despite almost $800,000 in merger related expenses during the current year. Nonperforming assets have declined in each of the past four consecutive quarters and have dropped by more than $4.2 million in the past year, partly due to the disposition of nearly $900,000 of foreclosed real estate during the quarter ended September 30, 2013. We repurchased for $1,442,000 from the U.S. Treasury a TARP-related stock warrant to purchase 183,465 shares of the Company's common stock, which equals a purchase price of approximately $7.85 per share. As a result, we have now completely exited the TARP Capital Purchase Program without having to raise any additional capital, which would have been dilutive to our shareholders. We are pleased to be able to report these achievements and appreciate your continued support."

(1)Tangible book value provides a measure of tangible equity on a per share basis. It is determined by methods other than in accordance with Accounting Principles Generally Accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and, as such, is considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes the presentation of Tangible book value per share is meaningful supplemental information for shareholders. We calculate Tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as of period end. The decline in equity and book value per common share during the 2013 fiscal year is primarily attributable to an unrealized decrease in market values of the Company's mortgage-backed securities portfolio due to recent interest rate increases. Unrealized gains and losses on such securities are reflected in Stockholders' Equity through Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income, net of income tax. To a lesser extent, the Company's repurchase of its TARP related stock warrant from the U.S. Treasury also contributed to the decrease.

(1) Includes residential owner occupied properties and residential rental investor properties.

 

(2) Nonaccrual status denotes loans on which, in the opinion of management, the collection of additional interest is questionable. Also included in this category at September 30, 2013 is $1.2 million in Troubled Debt Restructurings. Reporting guidance requires disclosure of these loans as nonaccrual until the loans have performed according to the modified terms for a sustained period. As of September 30, 2013, the Company had a total of $7.2 million in Troubled Debt Restructurings, $6.0 million of which were accounted for on an accrual basis for interest income.

 

(3) Regulatory guidance provides that residential rental foreclosed real estate with leases in place and demonstrated cash flow generating a reasonable rate of return generally are not considered to be a classified asset. As of September 30, 2013, the Company has identified $53 thousand in foreclosed real estate meeting these criteria. Accordingly, this amount has been excluded from nonperforming assets.
