  • Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.22 per share, representing Territorial Bancorp Inc.’s 34th consecutive quarterly dividend.

HONOLULU, Jan. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Territorial Bancorp Inc. (TBNK) (the “Company”), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $4.64 million or $0.50 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2018, compared to $2.17 million or $0.23 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2017.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.22 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on February 19, 2019 to stockholders of record as of February 5, 2019.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “In 2018, the Company performed well despite the challenges from rising interest rates and home prices in Hawaii. Our strong performance has allowed us to grow our loan portfolio and interest income.”

Interest Income

Net interest income decreased to $14.87 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018 from $14.90 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. Total interest income was $18.61 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018 compared to $17.60 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. The $1.01 million growth in interest income was due to a $1.18 million increase in interest earned on loans which resulted primarily from the $93.24 million increase in the average loans receivable and an eight basis point increase in the loan portfolio yield. The growth in interest income on loans was offset by a $245,000 decline in interest income on investment securities. The decrease earned on securities occurred because of a $34.03 million decline in the average securities portfolio balance that occurred because repayments exceeded the purchase of new securities. Repayments on the securities portfolio were used to fund the growth in loans receivable.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense rose to $3.74 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018 from $2.70 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. Total interest expense on deposits increased to $2.98 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018 from $2.21 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. The $768,000 increase in interest expense in 2018 occurred because of a $25.29 million increase in average total deposits and a 19 basis point increase in the average cost of deposits. In 2018, interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances rose by $313,000 because of a $39.81 million increase in the average FHLB advance balance and a 51 basis point increase in the average cost of advances. During the quarter ended December 31, 2018, the provision for loan losses was $100,000 compared to $50,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 primarily because of growth in the loan portfolio.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $839,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 compared to $856,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2017. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to a $34,000 decrease in the gain on sale of loans.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $9.22 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018 compared to $10.25 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. The decrease in noninterest expense was primarily due to a $999,000 decrease in salaries and employee benefits, which resulted from a decline in bonuses and ESOP expenses. In 2017, a change was made to the method of distributing dividends to participants in the ESOP plan. The change in method and the increase in dividends paid on common stock raised the total distribution to ESOP plan participants, resulting in additional ESOP expenses of $661,000.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $1.74 million compared to $3.29 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. This reduction in income tax expense was primarily due to the decrease in the federal corporate tax rate from 35.00% in 2017 to 21.00% in 2018 that occurred with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Income tax expense in 2017 also included a $2.05 million write-down in deferred tax assets that occurred when the federal corporate tax rate was lowered from 35.00% to 21.00%. Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, also included $4,600 and $505,000, respectively of tax benefits related to the exercise of stock options.

Year Ended December 31, 2018 Results

Net income for 2018 was $19.21 million compared to $14.96 million for 2017, an increase of $4.25 million or 28.41%. The increase in earnings is primarily due to a $4.99 million decrease in income tax expense. The decline in income taxes occurred primarily because the federal income tax rate decreased from 35.00% in 2017 to 21.00% in 2018 with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The decrease in income taxes can also be attributed to a $2.05 million increase in income tax expense that occurred in 2017 because of a write-down in deferred tax assets when the federal corporate tax rate was lowered.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, net interest income was $59.77 million compared to $58.74 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. Total interest income increased to $73.30 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 from $68.33 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. Interest income on loans grew by $5.14 million, or 9.31%, to $60.28 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, primarily because of a $122.44 million increase in the average loan portfolio that occurred as new loan originations exceeded loan repayments. This increase was offset by a reduction of $290,000 in interest earned on investment securities that occurred because of an $8.91 million decrease in the average size of the securities portfolio that occurred as repayments exceeded the purchase of new securities. Repayments on the securities portfolio were used to fund the growth in loans receivable. Total interest expense increased to $13.53 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 from $9.59 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. The increase in interest expense is primarily due to a $3.35 million increase in interest expense on deposits and a $905,000 increase in interest expense on advances from the FHLB. The increase in interest expense on deposits occurred because of an $81.91 million increase in average total deposits and a 19 basis point increase in the average cost of deposits. The $905,000 increase in interest expense on FHLB advances occurred because of a $32.74 million increase in the average balance of FHLB advances and a 38 basis point increase in the average the cost of advances. Provision for loan losses increased to $119,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $52,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017 primarily because of growth in the loan portfolio.

Noninterest income was $3.16 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $3.85 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. This decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to a $386,000 reduction in the gain on sale of investment securities and a $127,000 decrease in the gain on sale of loans.

Noninterest expense was $37.49 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $36.47 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. Salaries and employee benefits grew by $545,000 primarily due to a 3.0% company-wide salary increase, an increase by the Company of its minimum hourly wage rate to $15.00 and a decrease in the capitalized cost of new loan originations. As new loans are originated, compensation expense is reduced due to the capitalization of the cost of new loan originations. Fewer loans were originated in 2018 compared to 2017. The decrease in the number of new loan originations resulted in a reduction in loan cost capitalization and a higher compensation expense in 2018. These increases in compensation were offset by a decline in loan agent commissions and bonuses. Also, occupancy expense and equipment rose by $387,000 and $366,000, respectively, in 2018. The growth in occupancy expense is primarily due to an increase in lease rent and common area maintenance expenses. The growth in equipment expenses can be attributed primarily to an increase in depreciation on new equipment and repairs and maintenance expenses.

Income tax expense decreased by $4.99 million to $6.11 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $11.10 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. The decline in income taxes occurred primarily because the federal income tax rate decreased from 35.00% in 2017 to 21.00% in 2018 with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. In 2018, the Company also recognized a $476,000 tax benefit by making a $3.40 million contribution to its defined benefit pension plan. The tax benefit from the pension contribution occurred as the tax deduction for pension contributions was calculated at the 35.00% federal corporate tax rate for 2017 rather than the 21.00% federal corporate tax for 2018. The decrease in income taxes can also be attributed to a $2.05 million increase in income tax expense in 2017 when a write-down in deferred tax assets occurred because the federal corporate tax rate was lowered. Income tax expense in 2018 and 2017 also included tax benefits of $134,000 and $1.05 million, respectively, from the exercise of stock options.

Assets and Equity

Total assets increased to $2.07 billion at December 31, 2018 from $2.00 billion at December 31, 2017. Loans receivable grew by $85.65 million or 5.75% to $1.57 billion at December 31, 2018 from $1.49 billion at December 31, 2017. The growth in loan receivable occurred as residential mortgage loan originations exceeded loan repayments. The growth in loans receivable was funded primarily by a $31.87 million increase in deposits, a $35.00 million increase in FHLB advances and $33.28 million of repayments on investment securities. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $235.65 million at December 31, 2018 from $234.85 million at December 31, 2017. The increase in stockholders’ equity occurred as the Company’s net income and the increase in capital from the exercise of stock options and the allocation of ESOP shares exceeded dividends paid to shareholders and share repurchases.

Capital Management

During the quarter ended December 31, 2018, the Company repurchased $1.07 million, or 37,500 shares, under in its eighth repurchase program which allows the repurchase of up to $5.00 million of outstanding shares. The Company has repurchased 3,441,653 shares in all of its share repurchase programs. The number of shares repurchased represents 28.13% of the total shares issued in its initial public offering.

As of December 31, 2018, the Company has 337,654 outstanding, exercisable stock options. The exercise of options would increase the number of shares outstanding, which among other things, would reduce earnings per share.

Asset Quality

Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $879,000 at December 31, 2018, compared to $1.63 million at December 31, 2017. Non-performing assets totaled $2.21 million at December 31, 2018 compared to $4.23 million at December 31, 2017. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets decreased to 0.11% at December 31, 2018 from 0.21% at December 31, 2017. The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2018 was $2.64 million and represented 0.17% of total loans compared to $2.55 million and 0.17% of total loans as of December 31, 2017.
