BCSB Bancorp, Inc. Reports Results For The First Quarter Ended December 31, 2013

PR Newswire

BALTIMORE, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BCSB Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (BCSB), the holding company for Baltimore County Savings Bank (the "Bank") reported net income of $202,000 or $0.06 per basic and diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2013, which represents the first quarter of its 2014 fiscal year. This compares to net income of $639,000 or $0.21 per basic share and $0.20 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

During the three months ended December 31, 2013, earnings were negatively affected by increased non-interest expenses due to merger-related costs, reduced net interest income and lower non-interest income from loss on sale of foreclosed property and a decline in commission income on sales of investment products. Earnings were favorably impacted by a reduction in provision for loan losses. Non-interest expenses aside from merger-related costs also declined as compared with the three months ended December 31, 2012, favorably impacting earnings during the current period.

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 common 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.

(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 December 31, 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 December 31, 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 December 31, 2013, the Company has identified $53 thousand in foreclosed real estate meeting these criteria. Accordingly, this amount has been excluded from nonperforming assets.
