VANCOUVER, Wash., July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Riverview Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq GSM: RVSB) (“Riverview” or the “Company”) today reported earnings of $4.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the first fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to $4.1 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter and $5.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

“Earnings for our first fiscal quarter were strong, driven by an increase in net interest income and lower operating expenses compared to last quarter,” stated Kevin Lycklama, president and chief executive officer. “Our approach of managing our funding costs, combined with the increase in loan yields during the quarter, helped to increase our net interest margin by 13 basis points in the first fiscal quarter, compared to the preceding quarter. We are well-positioned for rising interest rates with a strong low-cost core deposit base and ample on-balance sheet liquidity to support increased business activity and loan demand in our markets.”

First Quarter Highlights (at or for the period ended June 30, 2022)

  • Net income was $4.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share.

  • Pre-tax, pre-provision for loan losses income (non-GAAP) was $6.0 million for the quarter compared to $4.8 million in the preceding quarter and $5.7 million for the year ago quarter.

  • Net interest income increased to $12.7 million for the quarter compared to $11.9 million in the preceding quarter and $11.3 million in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

  • Net interest margin (“NIM”) expanded to 3.11% for the quarter, compared to 2.98% in the preceding quarter and 3.07% for the year ago quarter.

  • Return on average assets was 1.08% and return on average equity was 11.91%.

  • Riverview recorded no provision for loan losses during the quarter, compared to a $650,000 recapture of loan losses in the preceding quarter and a $1.6 million recapture in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

  • The allowance for loan losses was $14.6 million, or 1.44% of total loans. The allowance for loan losses excluding SBA purchased and SBA PPP loans (non-GAAP) was 1.53% of total loans.

  • Total loans increased $22.1 million during the quarter. Included in total loans:

    • Riverview purchased $26.8 million of 1-4 family loans during the quarter, offset primarily by a $1.4 million decrease to its organic loan portfolio and a $3.1 million decrease in SBA PPP loans.

  • Asset quality remained strong, with non-performing loans excluding SBA and USDA government guaranteed loans (non-GAAP) at $262,000, or 0.02% of total assets at June 30, 2022.

  • Total deposits increased $82.6 million, or 5.8%, to $1.50 billion, compared to a year earlier, and decreased $38.3 million compared to three months earlier.

  • Total risk-based capital ratio was 16.31% and Tier 1 leverage ratio was 9.29%.

  • Paid a quarterly cash dividend during the quarter of $0.06 per share.

Income Statement Review

Riverview’s net interest income was $12.7 million in the current quarter, compared to $11.9 million in the preceding quarter, and $11.3 million in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. The increase in net interest income compared to the prior quarter was driven primarily by higher interest on the non-PPP loan portfolio as well as an increase in investment income and interest earned on our Federal Reserve account from the recent interest rate hikes, which offset a decrease in SBA PPP loan interest and fee income, as this portfolio continues to decline due to SBA forgiveness. Investment income continues to supplement interest income due to the overall growth in the investment portfolio. Additionally, the interest rate environment produced lower interest expense on deposits. The adjusted net interest income (non-GAAP) increased to $12.0 million in the current quarter compared to $11.1 million in the preceding quarter and $10.2 million in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2023, $101,000 of interest and net fee income was earned through PPP loan forgiveness and normal amortization. This compared to $440,000 of interest and net fee income on PPP loans during the preceding quarter and $892,000 in the first quarter of the prior year.

Riverview’s NIM was 3.11% for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, a 13 basis-point increase compared to 2.98% in the preceding quarter and a four basis-point increase compared to 3.07% in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. “The increase in investment yields and on balance sheet liquidity contributed to NIM expansion during the quarter,” said David Lam, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2023, net fees on loan prepayments, which included purchased SBA loan premiums, increased net interest income by $168,000 and increased the NIM by four basis points. This compared to $144,000 in net fees on loan prepayments adding four basis points to NIM in the preceding quarter. The interest accretion on purchased loans totaled $37,000 and resulted in a one-basis point increase in the NIM during the first quarter, compared to $127,000 and a three-basis point increase in the NIM during the preceding quarter. SBA PPP loan interest and fees added two basis points to the NIM for the current quarter, compared to nine basis points for the preceding quarter. The average overnight cash balances were $194.3 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to $236.6 million in the preceding quarter and $272.3 million for the first fiscal quarter a year ago. Without the elevated level in overnight cash balances, NIM would have been 31 basis points higher in the current quarter, 44 basis points higher in the prior quarter and 69 basis points higher in the first quarter a year ago. These items resulted in a core-NIM (non-GAAP) of 3.35% in the current quarter, 3.26% in the preceding quarter and 3.64% in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

During the first fiscal quarter of 2023, Riverview continued to deploy excess cash into its investment portfolio. Investment securities totaled $437.7 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $418.9 million at March 31, 2022. During the current quarter, the Company purchased $34.9 million in new securities with a weighted average yield of 3.08%. Investment purchases were comprised primarily of agency securities and MBS backed by government agencies.

Average securities balances for the quarters ended June 30, 2022, March 31, 2022, and June 30, 2021, were $441.6 million, $410.4 million and $279.0 million, respectively. The weighted average yields on securities balances for those same periods were 1.74%, 1.63% and 1.53%, respectively.

Average PPP loans were $1.5 million in the first quarter compared to $6.8 million in the preceding quarter and $80.3 million in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. During the quarter, Riverview recorded $4,000 in interest income on PPP loans and $97,000 in loan fee amortization into income. This compared to $16,000 in interest income on PPP loans and $424,000 in loan fee amortization during the preceding quarter and $203,000 in interest income on PPP loans and $689,000 in loan fee amortization during the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

Riverview’s loan yields decreased during the quarter to 4.39% compared to 4.43% in the preceding quarter and 4.67% in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. Loan yields excluding PPP loans were 4.36% for the quarter compared to 4.28% in the preceding quarter and 4.69% in the year-ago quarter. The cost of deposits decreased to 0.07% during the first fiscal quarter compared to 0.08% in the preceding quarter, and 0.13% in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

Non-interest income was $3.1 million during the first fiscal quarter, compared to $3.0 million in the preceding quarter, and $3.6 million in the first fiscal quarter of 2022. Interchange income and brokered loan fee income remained strong. However, brokered loan fees have slowed due to the decrease in mortgage activity and rising interest rates. Non-interest income for the first fiscal quarter a year ago included a $479,000 tax exempt payout on a bank owned life insurance (“BOLI”) policy.

Asset management fees were $1.2 million during the first fiscal quarter compared to $1.1 million in the preceding quarter and $976,000 in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. Riverview Trust Company’s assets under management was $1.2 billion at June 30, 2022, compared to $1.3 billion at both March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2021. The decrease compared to the prior quarter was a result of decreases in stock market-based assets due to the downturn in the financial markets.

Non-interest expense was $9.8 million during the quarter compared to $10.1 million in the preceding quarter and $9.1 million in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. Salary and employee benefits decreased compared to the prior quarter, with prior quarter including fiscal year-end bonuses and incentive pay. However, wage pressures and the competitive landscape for attracting and retaining employees, continues to put pressure on salary and employee benefits. The efficiency ratio was 61.9% for the first fiscal quarter compared to 68.0% in the preceding quarter and 61.4% in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

Return on average assets was 1.08% in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 compared to 0.97% in the preceding quarter. Return on average equity and return on average tangible equity (non-GAAP) was 11.91% and 14.46%, respectively, compared to 10.23% and 12.30%, respectively, for the prior quarter.

Riverview’s effective tax rate for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 was 22.7%, compared to 23.7% for the preceding quarter, and 21.5% for the year ago quarter.

Balance Sheet Review

Total loans were $1.01 billion at June 30, 2022 compared to $990.4 million three months earlier and $889.5 million a year ago. The $22.1 million increase in loan balances compared to the prior quarter was driven by the purchase of $26.8 million of 1-4 family loans, which was primarily offset by a $1.4 million decline in organic loans, and a $3.1 million decrease in SBA PPP loans due to forgiveness during the quarter. SBA PPP loans, net of fees, totaled $12,000 at June 30, 2022, compared to $3.1 million at March 31, 2022, and $55.5 million at June 30, 2021.

Riverview’s loan pipeline totaled $66.8 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $101.4 million at the end of the prior quarter. Loan activity remained strong, with new loan originations during the quarter totaling $90.7 million compared to $82.8 million in the preceding quarter and $28.0 million in the first quarter a year ago.

Undisbursed construction loans totaled $47.7 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $39.5 million at March 31, 2022, with the majority of the undisbursed construction loans expected to fund over the next several quarters. Undisbursed homeowner association loans for the purpose of common area maintenance and repairs totaled $34.1 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $18.9 million at March 31, 2022. Revolving commercial business loan commitments totaled $57.3 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $66.0 million three months earlier. Utilization on these loans totaled 22.3% at June 30, 2022 compared to 18.4% at March 31, 2022. The weighted average rate on loan originations during the quarter improved to 4.71% compared to 3.77% in the preceding quarter.

Total deposits were $1.50 billion at June 30, 2022 compared to $1.53 billion at March 31, 2022, representing a decrease of $38.3 million. Total deposits increased $82.6 million, or 5.8%, compared to a year earlier. Checking accounts, as a percentage of total deposits, totaled 52.0% at June 30, 2022.

Shareholders’ equity was $154.4 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $157.2 million three months earlier and $157.0 million a year earlier. Tangible book value per share (non-GAAP) was $5.78 at June 30, 2022 compared to $5.86 at March 31, 2022, and $5.80 at June 30, 2021. The decrease in tangible book value per share during the current quarter was primarily due to a $4.9 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss related to an increase in the unrealized loss on available for sale securities, reflecting the increase in interest rates during the current quarter. Riverview increased its quarterly cash dividend to $0.06 per share on July 21, 2022.

Credit Quality

Asset quality remained strong, with non-performing loans excluding SBA and USDA government guaranteed loans (non-GAAP) at $262,000, or 0.02% of total assets as of June 30, 2022 and $273,000, or 0.02% of total assets at March 31, 2022. Including SBA and USDA government guaranteed loans, non-performing assets were $27.5 million, or 1.62% of total assets, at June 30, 2022 compared to $22.1 million, or 1.27% of total assets, three months earlier and $383,000, or 0.02% of total assets, at June 30, 2021. The increase is attributed to an increase in non-performing SBA and USDA government guaranteed loans where payments have been delayed due to the servicing transfer of these loans between two third-party servicers. Once the servicing transfer is complete, Riverview expects to receive the delayed payments and expects non-performing assets to decrease significantly.

Additional details on government guaranteed portion of the SBA and USDA loans.

The Bank holds approximately $27.2 million of the government guaranteed portion of SBA and USDA loans originated by other banks that, when purchased, were placed into a Direct Registration Certificate (“DRC”) program by the SBA’s former fiscal transfer agent, Colson Inc. (“Colson”). Under the DRC program, Colson was required to remit monthly payments to the investor holding the guaranteed balance, whether or not a payment had actually been received from the borrower. In 2020, Colson did not successfully retain its existing contract as the SBA’s fiscal transfer agent and began transitioning servicing over to a new company called Guidehouse. In late 2021, Guidehouse, under their contract with the SBA, declined to continue the DRC program. After declining to continue the DRC program, all payments under the DRC program began to be held by Guidehouse or Colson until the DRC program could be unwound and the DRC holdings converted into normal pass through certificates. As part of unwinding the DRC program, Colson has requested investors who had received payments in advance of the borrower actually remitting payment return advanced funds before they will process the conversion of certificates. The Bank continues to work with Colson on the reconciliation and transfer of these loans. The Bank expects the reconciliation and unwinding process to continue through the next two quarters and until the reconciliation and unwinding process is completed, these loans will be reflected as past due. The Bank is fully guaranteed to be paid all principal and interest on these loans.

Riverview recorded net loan recoveries of $36,000 during the first fiscal quarter. This compared to an insignificant amount of net loan charge-offs for the preceding quarter and $12,000 net loan recoveries in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. Riverview recorded no provision for loan losses during the first fiscal quarter. This compared to a recapture of loan losses of $650,000 in the prior quarter and a recapture of loan losses of $1.6 million during the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

Classified assets were $6.4 million at both June 30, 2022 and March 31, 2022 and $5.9 million at June 30, 2021. The classified asset to total capital ratio was 3.7% at June 30, 2022 compared to 3.8% three months earlier and 3.6% a year earlier. Criticized assets decreased significantly to $1.3 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $7.8 million at March 31, 2022 and $40.3 million at June 30, 2021.

At June 30, 2022, the allowance for loan losses was $14.6 million, compared to $14.5 million at March 31, 2022 and $17.6 million one year earlier. The allowance for loan losses represented 1.44% of total loans at June 30, 2022 compared to 1.47% in the preceding quarter and 1.98% a year earlier. The allowance for loan losses to loans, net of SBA guaranteed loans (including SBA purchased and PPP loans) (non-GAAP), was 1.53% at June 30, 2022, compared to 1.57% at March 31, 2022 and 2.22% a year earlier. Included in the carrying value of loans are net discounts on the MBank purchased loans, which may reduce the need for an allowance for loan losses on these loans because they are carried at an amount below the outstanding principal balance. The remaining net discount on these purchased loans was $334,000 at June 30, 2022 compared to $371,000 three months earlier.

PPP Loans

During Round 1, Riverview originated 790 PPP loans totaling approximately $112.9 million, net of deferred fees, and in PPP Round 2, Riverview originated 414 PPP loans totaling approximately $54.1 million, net of deferred fees. Unamortized PPP deferred loan fees at June 30, 2022 totaled $1,000 for all PPP loans. At June 30, 2022, only $11,000 in PPP loans from Round 1 and Round 2 remained on the books.

Capital

Riverview continues to maintain capital levels well in excess of the regulatory requirements to be categorized as “well capitalized” with a total risk-based capital ratio of 16.31% and a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 9.29% at June 30, 2022. Tangible common equity to average tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) was 7.60% at June 30, 2022.

Stock Repurchase Program

On March 9, 2022, Riverview announced that its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase up to $5.0 million of the Company’s outstanding shares in the open market, based on prevailing market prices, or in privately negotiated transactions, over a period beginning on March 21, 2022, and continuing until the earlier of the completion of the repurchase or September 9, 2022, depending upon market conditions. As of June 30, 2022, Riverview had repurchased 211,010 shares at an average price of $7.08 per share.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Management has presented these non-GAAP financial measures in this earnings release because it believes that they provide useful and comparative information to assess trends in Riverview's core operations reflected in the current quarter's results and facilitate the comparison of our performance with the performance of our peers. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for any analysis based on GAAP. Where applicable, comparable earnings information using GAAP financial measures is also presented. Because not all companies use the same calculations, our presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures as calculated by other companies. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures, see the tables below.

Any such projections were not prepared in accordance with published guidelines of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants or the Securities Exchange Commission regarding projections and forecasts nor have such projections been audited, examined or otherwise reviewed by independent auditors of the Company. In addition, such projections are based upon many estimates and inherently subject to significant economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the control of management of the Company. Accordingly, actual results may be materially higher or lower than those projected. The inclusion of such projections herein should not be regarded as a representation by the Company that the projections will prove to be correct.

The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Moreover, you should treat these statements as speaking only as of the date they are made and based only on information then actually known to the Company. The Company does not undertake and specifically disclaims any obligation to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of such statements.
