Results Reflect Strong Participation in SBA’s PPP Program
Well-Capitalized to Support Growth and Navigate Current Environment

VANCOUVER, Wash., July 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Riverview Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq GSM: RVSB) (“Riverview” or the “Company”) today reported earnings of $480,000, or $0.02 per diluted share for the first fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to $2.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter, and $4.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. During the quarter, the Company recognized a provision for loan losses of $4.5 million reflecting the current economic environment. Our pre-tax, pre-provision income (non-GAAP) was $5.1 million for the quarter, compared to $5.1 million in the preceding quarter and $5.4 million in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

“In spite of a challenging environment, our team delivered positive operating results, highlighted by strong deposit growth, stable asset quality and a commitment to helping our clients and communities through the Small Business Administration’s (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”),” stated Kevin Lycklama, president and chief executive officer. “While we prudently applied provisions for loan losses, we remain well-positioned to navigate the current environment and support growth in the Portland and Southwest Washington region, with robust capital levels, a stout loan loss reserve, solid balance sheet, strong asset quality metrics and an efficient operating platform.”

“I am encouraged by the resolve of our employees, who were able to be flexible, respond quickly and provide the personal attention that our local business partners deserve and have come to expect from Riverview. As a result and in a truly Riverview team effort, we helped fill the needs of our clients and local community, generating nearly 800 PPP loans totaling over $116 million and supporting over 12,500 local jobs,” Lycklama concluded.

First Quarter Highlights (at or for the period ended June 30, 2020)

  • Net income was $480,000, or $0.02 per diluted share.

  • Pre-tax, pre-provision income (non-GAAP) was $5.1 million for the quarter compared to $5.1 million in the previous quarter and $5.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

  • Net interest margin (NIM) was 3.65%.

  • Provision for loan losses was $4.5 million, reflecting a challenging economic environment and specific industry exposure in our loan portfolio.

  • Total loans increased $91.2 million during the quarter to $1.00 billion at June 30, 2020. SBA PPP loans totaled $110.3 million at June 30, 2020.

  • Total deposits increased $168.3 million, or 17.0%, during the quarter to $1.16 billion at June 30, 2020.

  • Non-performing assets decreased to 0.09% of total assets.

  • Total risk-based capital ratio was 17.40% and Tier 1 leverage ratio was 10.55%.

  • Returned $2.6 million of capital to shareholders during the quarter through share repurchases totaling $1.4 million and a quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.05 per share.

COVID-19 Operational Update:

  • Industry Exposure: Both Washington and Oregon have modified phased reopening plans in place for businesses. While the economic impact is widespread, some industries will be more acutely affected by the current business decline. Riverview’s loan portfolio exposure to industries most affected by these mandates include:

    • Hotel/Motel ($108.1 million, 10.8% of total loans)

    • Retail Strip Centers ($82.1 million, 8.2% of total loans)

    • Multi-Family ($58.1, 5.8% of total loans)

    • Gas Station/Auto Repair ($41.3 million, 4.1% of total loans)

    • Restaurants/Fast Food ($17.2 million, 1.6%)

Loans to these clients are generally secured by real estate and had strong financial performance heading into the current pandemic. The weighted average loan-to-value and debt service coverage ratio for these portfolios were as follows: Hotel/Motel (53% and 1.84x), Retail Strip Centers (53% and 1.77x), Multi-Family (53% and 1.92x), Gas Station/Auto Repair (52% and 3.18x), and Restaurants/Fast Food (57% and 1.45x).

“We are cautiously optimistic about the gradual recovery of the industries within which our customers operate and what that means for our overall credit profile. I am encouraged that regional business trends and many impacted customers are showing signs of sequential improvement. That said, we will remain prudent and continue to monitor credit trends within our portfolio, including the impact from evolving state and national level mandates,” Lycklama added.

  • Loan Accommodations:

    • Commercial Loans. As of June 30, 2020, Riverview had approved payment deferrals for 98 commercial loans that were impacted by the pandemic totaling $161.6 million. Of those totals, 23 borrowers have requested a 3-month extension to their original 3-month deferral totaling $75.1 million. In July 2020, Riverview received two new payment deferral requests totaling $2.1 million.

    • Consumer Loans. As of June 30, 2020, there were 43 consumer loan accommodations totaling $10.1 million that were made during the first fiscal quarter. In addition to the 43 loans that are held in our loan portfolio, there were 19 mortgage loans serviced for FHLMC totaling $3.3 million that were approved for payment deferrals. Since June 30, 2020, there have been no new requests or extensions to any existing consumer payment deferrals.

    • Since all of these loans were performing and current on their payments prior to COVID-19, these loan modifications are not considered to be troubled debt restructurings pursuant to provisions contained within the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”).

  • Loan Loss Reserve: Riverview’s asset quality remained stable during the quarter although there remains some uncertainty and downward pressure on credit quality in our loan portion as a result of the pandemic. Management determined a $4.5 million provision for loan losses was warranted for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, bringing the allowance for loan losses to $17.1 million, or 1.70% of total loans, at June 30, 2020 compared to $12.6 million, or 1.38% of total loans, at March 31, 2020. The current quarter’s provision for loan losses was due primarily to the challenging economic environment associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and the affect it has had on the respective industry exposures within our loan portfolio.

  • PPP Loans: On March 27, 2020, Congress passed the CARES Act providing financial relief and support to the economy, including funding for the SBA PPP. At June 30, 2020, Riverview had originated 790 loans totaling approximately $116.4 million with an average loan size of $147,000. Of the 790 approved loans, 616 were for loans under $150,000 totaling $30.3 million, 107 loans from $150,000 to $350,000 totaling $24.0 million, 59 loans from $350,000 to $2.0 million totaling $40.2 million and 8 loans over $2.0 million totaling $21.9 million. This also included funding for nearly 50 local non-profit organizations.

  • Liquidity Resources: Riverview is well positioned with adequate levels of cash and liquid assets as of June 30, 2020. In addition to the on-balance sheet liquidity of $295.8 million at June 30, 2020, Riverview has $261.3 million of available liquidity through the Federal Home Loan Bank and the Federal Reserve Bank.

  • Client and Employee Safety: We continue to prioritize the safety of our clients and employees. Since mid-March, our clients have been utilizing our drive-up services, ATMs, online banking, call center operations and scheduling personal appointments at each of our branches to meet with our employees. Approximately 80% of our non-branch staff is working remotely and we continue to monitor the phased protocols and State mandates to determine when and how we can safely reopen our facilities.

Commenting on the Company’s performance, David Lam, executive vice president and chief financial officer, stated, “While our provision for loan losses this quarter reflected the anticipated impact related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe we are adequately reserved for the current environment. We remain well-capitalized and will continue to proactively support our clients. Looking ahead, we are well-positioned with a strong balance sheet to support our long-term growth initiatives.”

Income Statement

Return on average assets was 0.15% in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 compared to 1.46% in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Return on average equity and return on average tangible equity (non-GAAP) was 1.28% and 1.57%, respectively, compared to 12.34% and 15.52% for the first fiscal quarter of fiscal 2020.

Net interest income for the quarter was $11.1 million, flat compared to the preceding quarter and slightly lower than the $11.5 million reported in the first quarter of the prior year. Total net revenues were $13.8 million during the quarter compared to $13.9 million in the prior quarter and $14.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Riverview’s first fiscal quarter NIM (GAAP) was 3.65% compared to 4.10% in the prior quarter and 4.33% in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease was primarily due to changes in the mix of interest earnings assets and decreases in the yield on interest earning assets, partially offset by decreases in the cost of interest bearing liabilities.

The accretion on purchased loans totaled $137,000 compared to $65,000 during the preceding quarter and $108,000 in the same period a year ago, resulting in a five basis point increase in the NIM for the current period compared to a two basis point increase for the preceding quarter and a four basis point increase for the same period a year ago. Net fees on loan prepayments, which included purchased SBA loan premiums, decreased interest income by $100,000 which negatively affected the NIM by four basis points during the first fiscal quarter of 2021. This compares to $22,000 in net fees on loan prepayments adding one basis point to the NIM for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2020 and $31,000 in net fees on loan prepayments adding one basis point to the NIM for the first fiscal quarter a year ago. The yield on SBA PPP loans was 3.15%, including the recognition of the net deferred fees during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. SBA PPP loans decreased the NIM by four basis points during the quarter. This resulted in a core-NIM (non-GAAP) of 3.68% in the current quarter compared to 4.07% in the preceding quarter and 4.28% in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

Loan yield decreased 38 basis points to 4.69% for the first quarter compared to 5.07% in the preceding quarter primarily as a result of the decline in market interest rates and the impact of lower yielding SBA PPP loans. Loan yield excluding SBA PPP loans was 4.83% for the first quarter compared to 5.07% in the preceding quarter.

The average balance of our overnight cash balances increased $55 million sequentially and $86 million compared to the prior year as a result of the increase in our deposit balances. The increase in overnight cash balances resulted in a 19 basis point decrease in our NIM compared to the prior quarter and a 30 basis point decrease compared to the same quarter a year ago.

The cost of total deposits was 0.31% during the first quarter compared to 0.38% in the preceding quarter and 0.15% during the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The sequential decrease in deposit costs during the June 30, 2020 quarter reflects the impact from the recent cuts in the federal funds target rate by the Federal Reserve in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Deposit costs are expected to decrease as a result of the continued low interest rate environment and as our certificates of deposit (“CD”) reach maturity. There are $62.5 million in CD balances that mature during fiscal year 2021, with a weighted average cost of 1.41%.

Non-interest income was $2.6 million in the first fiscal quarter of 2021, compared to $2.9 million in the preceding quarter and $3.1 million in the prior year. The decrease in non-interest income was driven by a decrease in service charges during the quarter as well as a decline in asset management fees. Service charges decreased primarily due to the decreased business activity and changes in customer spending habits as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The decline from the prior year was due to a decrease in overdraft fees of $126,000, a decrease in debit card interchange income of $91,000, a decrease in deposit service charges of $72,000 and a decrease in merchant bankcard fees of $49,000, partially offset by an increase in mortgage broker fees of $153,000 as a result of increased residential refinance activity due to the low interest rate environment.

Asset management fees decreased to $974,000 during the first fiscal quarter compared to $1.0 million in the preceding quarter and $1.1 million in the prior year due primarily to the decline in interest rates and stock market performance. Riverview Trust Company’s assets under management increased to $1.3 billion at June 30, 2020 compared to $1.2 billion three months earlier and $694.8 million a year earlier.

Non-interest expense decreased to $8.7 million compared to $8.8 million in the preceding quarter and $9.2 million in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. Compared to the preceding quarter, salaries and employee benefits decreased primarily due to the deferral of compensation related to origination costs of SBA PPP loans of $553,000. FDIC insurance premiums increased compared to the preceding quarter to $48,000 due to the Company utilizing its remaining FDIC assessment credits. Occupancy and depreciation expense decreased compared to the preceding quarter but was higher than a year ago, as we continue to invest in our technology infrastructure. The efficiency ratio was 63.2% for the first fiscal quarter compared to 63.3% in the preceding quarter and 63.0% in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

Riverview’s effective tax rate for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 was 15.2% compared to 22.5% for the first quarter a year ago. The lower effective tax rate was a result of lower taxable income which excluded our income from investments in bank-owned life insurance which is not subject to income tax.

Balance Sheet Review

Riverview’s total loans increased $91.2 million during the quarter to $1.0 billion compared to $911.5 million in the preceding quarter and increased $114.7 million compared to $888.0 million a year ago, driven largely by participation the SBA’s PPP program. SBA PPP loans balances were $110.3 million at June 30, 2020. SBA PPP loan balances averaged $84.8 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. All of these loans have a two-year maturity. Total loans continue to be impacted by paydowns on existing loans; however, paydowns have slowed due to the pandemic. The decrease in real estate one-to-four family loans during the quarter was primarily due to the strategic decision to broker all new loan originations. As expected, the loan pipeline slowed down during the quarter to $27.9 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $71.3 million at the end of the prior quarter.

Undisbursed construction loans totaled $18.1 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $25.7 million in the preceding quarter, with the majority of the undisbursed construction loans expected to fund over the next several quarters. Revolving commercial business loan commitments totaled $71.3 million at June 30, 2020. Utilization on these loans totaled 16.0% at June 30, 2020 compared to 23.7% at March 31, 2020. The weighted average rate on loan originations during the quarter was 3.36% at June 30, 2020 compared to 4.16% at March 31, 2020, reflecting the overall decreasing rate environment.

Deposits increased $168.3 million during the quarter to $1.16 billion at June 30, 2020 compared to $990.4 million in the preceding quarter and increased $236.5 million compared to $922.3 million a year earlier. The increase in deposits during the quarter was driven by PPP loans funding into customer accounts at the Bank as well as increases in non-PPP related deposits. A total of $105.8 million in PPP funds were deposited into customer’s accounts at origination. The increase in deposit balances was primarily in non-maturity accounts. Checking accounts as a percentage of total deposits increased to 51.1% at June 30, 2020 from 46.3% at March 31, 2020.

Shareholders’ equity was $147.5 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $148.8 million three months earlier and $138.7 million a year earlier. The decrease during the current quarter reflects the repurchase of common shares and dividends paid to shareholders. Tangible book value per share (non-GAAP) increased to $5.38 at June 30, 2020 compared to $5.37 at March 31, 2020, and $4.88 at June 30, 2019. Riverview paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share on July 22, 2020, consistent with the prior quarter. On April 17, 2020, Riverview completed its share repurchase plan originated on March 16, 2020, repurchasing 500,000 shares totaling $2.5 million.

Credit Quality

Riverview’s asset quality metrics improved compared to a year ago and the company remains diligent in monitoring the loan portfolio given the current economic environment.

Non-performing loans totaled $1.3 million, or 0.13% of total loans, at June 30, 2020 compared to $1.4 million, or 0.15% of total loans, at March 31, 2020 and $1.5 million, or 0.16% of total loans, at June 30, 2019. Net loan charge offs were $48,000 during the first fiscal quarter of 2021 compared to $60,000 in the preceding quarter and $15,000 in the first fiscal quarter a year ago.

Classified assets totaled $5.0 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $1.6 million at March 31, 2020 and $6.0 million at June 30, 2019. The increase was due to the addition of a single non-owner occupied hotel loan totaling $3.6 million that was downgraded as a result of impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. The classified asset to total capital ratio was 3.3% at June 30, 2020 compared to 1.1% three months earlier and 4.1% a year earlier.

At June 30, 2020, the allowance for loan losses increased to $17.1 million compared to $12.6 million in the preceding quarter and $11.4 million one year earlier. The allowance for loan losses represented 1.70% of total loans at June 30, 2020 compared to 1.38% in the preceding quarter and 1.29% a year earlier. The allowance for loan losses to loan, net of SBA guaranteed loans (including SBA PPP loans), was 2.08% (non-GAAP) at June 30, 2020. 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 $994,000 at June 30, 2020, compared to $1.1 million three months earlier.

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 17.40% and a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.55% at June 30, 2020. Tangible common equity to average tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) was 8.87% at June 30, 2020.

Branch Expansion

Riverview previously announced plans for three new locations in Clark County, Washington, complementing our existing branch network. Our new branch in downtown Camas opened on June 29, 2020 while our new location in the Cascade Park neighborhood of Vancouver is scheduled to open later this fall. Our new branch location in Ridgefield is expected to open in the summer of 2021.

Notice of Virtual Annual Meeting of Stockholders

Riverview announced that due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and to protect the safety and well-being of our stockholders, Board of Directors and employees, its 2020 annual meeting of stockholders will be held in a virtual meeting format only. The virtual meeting will take place on August 26, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. To participate in the annual meeting, you will need the control number located on your proxy card or the instructions that accompanied your proxy materials.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“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.

Such forward-looking statements may include projections. 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. These risks could cause our actual results for fiscal 2021 and beyond to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements by, or on behalf of, us, and could negatively affect the Company’s operating and stock price performance.
