EAU CLAIRE, Wis., Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Citizens Community Bancorp, Inc. (the Company) (Nasdaq: CZWI), the parent company of Citizens Community Federal N.A. (the Bank or CCFBank), today reported earnings of $3.5 million, or $0.31 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $3.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Net income as adjusted (non-GAAP) 1 of $3.3 million, or $0.30 per share was reported for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $2.8 million, or $0.25 per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

The Companys third quarter operating results reflected: (1) modestly lower net interest income largely due to loan portfolio reductions,  (2) lower loan loss provisions, while increasing COVID-19-related qualitative provision, (3) a continued robust refinancing market which led to all-time high gains on sale of mortgage loans and (4) lower non-interest expenses due to reduced compensation expense and decreased impairment of mortgage servicing right assets.

Book value per share was $14.10 at September 30, 2020 compared to $13.70 at June 30, 2020 and $13.13 at September 30, 2019.  Book value per share increased $0.74, or a 7% annualized increase, from December 31, 2019. Tangible book value per share (non-GAAP) 5 was $10.75 at September 30, 2020 compared to $10.31 at June 30, 2020 and $9.60 at September 30, 2019.

The increase in book value and tangible book value (non-GAAP) 5 in the third quarter reflects net income of $3.5 million and a quarterly increase in accumulated other comprehensive income unrealized gain of $0.9 million. Additionally, the increase in tangible book value (non-GAAP) 5 in the third quarter reflects the reduction of core deposit intangibles of $0.4 million.

We were pleased with the continued execution of our strategic priorities.  This year we have increased tangible book value $0.86 per share, or a 12% annualized increase. Asset quality continued to improve with a quarterly decrease of 14% and year-to-date decrease of 31% in non-performing assets, an $18 million reduction, or 28%, in criticized assets from March 31 levels and $37 thousand of net charge-offs in the quarter. We completed an extensive review of our business during the COVID-19 pandemic to build more efficient workflows and staffing models, to better manage operating expenses, announced branch closings effective in the fourth quarter and strengthened our culture centered on caring for our customers and colleagues, said Stephen Bianchi, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

As expected, COVID-19 deferrals remain concentrated in the hospitality segment where occupancy rates have been tracking with national averages. We are working with our clients as the pandemic persists by requiring additional support from the borrower in exchange for further deferral periods. Restaurants, especially quick service, have rebounded and many have resumed full payment status. All other segments have or are scheduled to return to regular payment status. Nevertheless, we have increased loan loss reserves adding $3.5 million in COVID-19 qualitative reserves over the last three quarters, continued Bianchi.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company earned $9.2 million or $0.82 per share compared to earnings of $6.3 million, or $0.57 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

September 30, 2020 Highlights: (as of or for the 3-month period ended September 30, 2020, compared to June 30, 2020)

  • Stockholders equity as a percent of total assets increased from 9.51% to 9.70% during the quarter. Tangible common equity (non-GAAP) 5 relative to tangible assets (non-GAAP) 5 , less SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans increased to 8.29% at September 30, 2020 compared to 8.03% at June 30, 2020.
     

  • The Bank recorded provision for loan losses of $1.50 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $1.75 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.  In continued anticipation of a COVID-19 related adverse economic impact, the COVID-19 related provision was $1.5 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2020 increasing the allowance for loan losses allocated to COVID-19 to $3.5 million.  This was a modest increase from the $1.25 million provided for COVID-19 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic continued to result in reduced operating capacity and uncertainty regarding potential future revenue and cash flows for certain businesses, including bank borrowers. Hotels and restaurants represent our portfolios two industry sectors most directly and adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. These sectors loans totaled approximately $102 million and $39 million, respectively, at September 30, 2020.
     

  • As of September 30, 2020, the Banks COVID-19 related modifications under Section 4013 of the CARES Act, totaled $126.7 million, or 10% of gross loans versus $197.3 million, or 15% of gross loans at June 30, 2020. At September 30, 2020, hotel industry sector loans represent approximately $71 million of the approved deferrals and the restaurant industry sectors represent approximately $5 million. The Bank has approximately $50 million of total payment deferrals expiring in the fourth quarter of 2020.
     

  • The sum of special mention and substandard assets, or criticized assets, decreased $15.2 million to $40.7 million at September 30, 2020 from $55.9 million at June 30, 2020, a decrease of 27%.
     

  • The allowance for loan losses on originated loans, excluding PPP loans, increased to 1.65%.  Since PPP loans are guaranteed by the SBA, they are excluded from this reserve calculation.  Additionally, loans acquired through acquisition were effectively marked to market value at the time of their acquisition and were also excluded from this reserve calculation.
     

  • On August 12, 2020, the Bank announced the fourth quarter closure of three branch operations located at Minnesota Lake, Minnesota, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and Eleva, Wisconsin. The branch operations will be consolidated into nearby branch locations.

Balance Sheet and Asset Quality

Total assets increased $15 million during the quarter to $1.62 billion at September 30, 2020 compared to $1.61 billion at June 30, 2020.  The increase is primarily due to increases in cash and cash equivalents, partially offset by decreases in the loan portfolio.

Cash and cash equivalents increased to $115.5 million at September 30, 2020 from $39.6 million the prior quarter. Deposit levels remain robust, while the Bank experienced loan shrinkage and chose to maintain the investment portfolio at previous levels due to low yielding investment options.  As such, the Company has chosen to maintain a high level of liquidity. 

Loans receivable decreased to $1.23 billion at September 30, 2020 from $1.28 billion at June 30, 2020. New loan originations actually remain at previous account levels. However, due to repayments of criticized assets, $12 million in loan payoffs in acquired loans due to sale of property and the Banks decision not to match selected acquired loans refinancing interest rates totaling $14 million, the portfolio shrank.

The originated loan portfolio declined $9.7 million to $917.5 million at September 30, 2020 compared to $927.2 million at June 30, 2020. Acquired loans declined $42.4 million to $324.3 million in the current quarter from $366.7 million in the previous quarter. 

The allowance for loan losses increased to $14.8 million at September 30, 2020 representing 1.21% of loans receivable at September 30, 2020 compared to 1.04% of loans receivable at June 30, 2020.  Excluding the PPP loans which are guaranteed by the SBA, the allowance for loan losses was 1.35% at September 30, 2020 compared to 1.16% the prior quarter.  A significant portion of the current loan portfolio includes loans purchased through whole bank acquisitions resulting in purchased credit impairments which are not included in the allowance for loan losses. The allowance for loan losses as a percent of originated loans excluding PPP loans was 1.65% at September 30, 2020 compared to 1.53% the prior quarter.  The increase in the allowance in the third quarter of 2020 was primarily due to the $1.5 million loan loss provisions related to anticipated COVID-19 adverse economic impacts.

One of the Companys strategic objectives for 2020 was to reduce nonperforming assets and classified assets.
Nonperforming assets decreased to $14.9 million or 0.92% of total assets at September 30, 2020 compared to $17.4 million or 1.08% of total assets at June 30, 2020. Included in nonperforming assets at September 30, 2020 are $10.5 million of nonperforming assets acquired during recent whole-bank acquisitions.  Originated nonperforming assets were only $4.4 million, 0.27% of total assets for the most recent quarter compared to $5.7 million, or 0.36% the prior quarter. 

Substandard and special mention loans declined $15.2 million, or 27%, during the quarter ended September 30, 2020.  The table below shows the decreases in substandard loans by quarter during 2020.

Deposits decreased $1 million to $1.271 billion at September 30, 2020 compared to $1.272 billion at June 30, 2020. Certificates of deposit represented all the deposit decline while money market, demand and savings accounts reflected increased balances. Certificates of deposit decreased by $26.4 million as the Company chose not to match higher rate local retail certificate competition.

On August 27, 2020, the Company issued ten-year, 6.00% fixed-to-floating subordinated notes totaling $15 million. The notes have a five-year non-call feature. The Company plans to use the funds for general corporate purposes with the ability to downstream to the Bank as capital if needed.

Review of Operations
Net interest income was $11.9 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $12.3 million for the second quarter of 2020, and $11.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.  The net interest margin decreased to 3.11% for the third quarter of 2020 compared to 3.34% for both the second quarter of 2020 and the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.  For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the decrease in net interest income was primarily due to lower yields on interest-earning assets and loan portfolio shrinkage compared to the previous quarter.

The yield on interest earning assets was 3.98% for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 4.32% the prior quarter, and 4.67% for the third quarter one year earlier.  From the second quarter, the decrease in yield on interest earning assets is largely due to the increase in interest-bearing cash and cash equivalents.  The cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased to 1.06% for the third quarter from 1.16% one quarter earlier and 1.56% one year earlier.  The primary decrease in the third quarter funding costs was due to lower deposit costs as the Bank repriced various deposit products and relied less on higher-costing certificates of deposit.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the net interest margin was 3.36% compared to 3.35% for the same time period one year earlier.

Loan loss provisions were $1.50 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.75 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and $575,000 one year earlier. As previously mentioned, the Company provided $1.5 million related to the COVID-19 Q-factor in the third quarter bringing the 2020 COVID-19 Q-factor to $3.5 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, provisions for loan losses were $5.25 million compared to $2.13 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. 

Non-interest income increased to a quarter end high of $5.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 from the previous quarter end high of $5.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase is largely due to higher gains on sale of mortgage loans, an increase in retail customer activity and the annual incentive paid on higher debit card activity, which is recorded in other income. Additionally, in the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Banks acquired wealth management business partner exercised their contractual call originated prior to the acquisition, resulting in the sale of the wealth management business.  The sale resulted in a $180 thousand gain recorded in the current quarter. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, total non-interest income was $13.7 million compared to $11.2 million for the same period one year earlier.

Total non-interest expense declined to $10.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, or 6% from $11.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.  This was due to a lower compensation expense and lower impairment on mortgage servicing rights (MSR), partially offset by increased data processing expenses associated with a larger average asset size and some seasonal increases in occupancy.   For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, total non-interest expenses were $32.8 million compared to $32.3 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2019.  The impact of the F&M acquisition on July 1, 2019 increased non-interest expense in 2020 in addition to the items discussed above.

Provisions for income taxes were $1.3 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.1 million during the preceding quarter.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, provisions for income taxes were $3.3 million compared to $2.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.  The effective tax rate for the most recent quarter was 26.7% compared to 26.5% the prior quarter.  For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, the effective tax rate was 26.6% compared to 26.4% for the corresponding period one year earlier.

These financial results are preliminary until the Form 10-Q is filed in November 2020.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this release are considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These statements may be identified using forward-looking words or phrases such as anticipate, believe, could, expect, estimates, intend, may, preliminary, planned, potential, should, will, would or the negative of those terms or other words of similar meaning. Such forward-looking statements in this release are inherently subject to many uncertainties arising in the operations and business environment of the Company and the Bank.  These uncertainties include the conditions in the financial markets and economic conditions generally; adverse impacts to the Company or Bank arising from the COVID-19 pandemic; the possibility of a deterioration in the residential real estate markets; interest rate risk; lending risk; the sufficiency of loan allowances; changes in the fair value or ratings downgrades of our securities; competitive pressures among depository and other financial institutions; our ability to maintain our reputation; our ability to realize the benefits of net deferred tax assets; our ability to maintain or increase our market share; acts of terrorism and political or military actions by the United States or other governments; legislative or regulatory changes or actions, or significant litigation, adversely affecting the Company or Bank; increases in FDIC insurance premiums or special assessments by the FDIC; disintermediation risk; our inability to obtain needed liquidity; risks related to the ongoing integration of F. & M. Bancorp. of Tomah, Inc. into the Companys operations; our ability to successfully execute our acquisition growth strategy; risks posed by acquisitions and other expansion opportunities, including difficulties and delays in integrating the acquired business operations or fully realizing the cost savings and other benefits; our ability to raise capital needed to fund growth or meet regulatory requirements; the possibility that our internal controls and procedures could fail or be circumvented; our ability to attract and retain key personnel; our ability to keep pace with technological change; cybersecurity risks; changes in federal or state tax laws; changes in accounting principles, policies or guidelines and their impact on financial performance; restrictions on our ability to pay dividends; and the potential volatility of our stock price.  Stockholders, potential investors and other readers are urged to consider these factors carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.  Such uncertainties and other risks that may affect the Companys performance are discussed further in Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors, in the Companys Form 10-K, for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 10, 2020 and the Companys subsequent filings with the SEC.  The Company undertakes no obligation to make any revisions to the forward-looking statements contained in this news release or to update them to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, such as net income as adjusted, net income as adjusted per share, tangible book value, tangible book value per share and tangible common equity as a percent of tangible assets, which management believes may be helpful in understanding the Companys results of operations or financial position and comparing results over different periods.

Net income as adjusted and net income as adjusted per share are non-GAAP measures that eliminates the impact of certain expenses such as acquisition and branch closure costs and related data processing termination fees, legal costs, severance pay, accelerated depreciation expense and lease termination fees, the gain on sale of branch deposits and fixed assets and the net impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which management believes enhances investors ability to better understand the underlying business performance and trends related to core business activities.  Merger related charges represent expenses to either satisfy contractual obligations of acquired entities without any useful benefit to the Company or to convert and consolidate customer records onto the Company platforms.  These costs are unique to each transaction based on the contracts in existence at the merger date.  Tangible book value, tangible book value per share and tangible common equity as a percent of tangible assets are non-GAAP measures that eliminate the impact of preferred stock equity, goodwill and intangible assets on our financial position.  Management believes these measures are useful in assessing the strength of our financial position.

Where non-GAAP financial measures are used, the comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as the reconciliation to the comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found in this press release.  These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other banks and financial institutions.
