Timberland Bancorp’s Third Fiscal Quarter Earnings Per Share Increases 19% to $0.70
  • Year-to-Date Earnings Per Share Increases 27% to $2.09

  • Year-to-date Net Income Increases 44%

  • Integration of South Sound Bank Completed

  • Announces $0.15 Regular Quarterly Dividend

HOQUIAM, Wash., July 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Timberland Bancorp, Inc. (TSBK) (“Timberland” or “the Company”) today reported net income increased to $5.96 million, or $0.70 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $4.42 million, or $0.59 per diluted share for the quarter ended one year ago. Net income totaled $6.11 million, or $0.72 per diluted common share, for the preceding quarter which was increased by a one-time $1.0 million ($0.12 per share) tax-exempt benefit.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2019, Timberland earned $17.69 million, or $2.09 per diluted common share, a 44% increase in net income and a 27% increase in earnings per diluted common share (“EPS”) from $12.30 million, or $1.64 per diluted common share reported for the first nine months of fiscal 2018.

Timberland’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend to shareholders of $0.15 per common share payable on August 29, 2019, to shareholders of record on August 15, 2019.

“We are pleased to report a 44% increase in fiscal year-to-date net income, compared to the prior year’s similar period,” commented Michael Sand, President and CEO. “With the additional shares issued and outstanding to effect the October, 2018, acquisition of South Sound Bank, year-to-date EPS increased 27% compared to the prior year’s similar period. The acquisition of South Sound provided Timberland additional opportunities to increase customer relationships along Washington State’s economically important I-5 corridor. Last week we rebranded the former South Sound branches as Timberland branches and completed the migration of South Sound’s core operating system to Timberland’s system.”

“During the quarter just ended we incurred $435,000 ($344,000 after tax), or $0.04 per share, in conversion related expenses and expect to incur approximately $450,000 ($356,000 after tax) of additional such expenses during our September quarter,” continued Sand. “Even with the significant conversion related IT costs expensed during the June quarter we improved the quarter’s efficiency ratio to 54.43% from 55.33% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.”

“The Company’s financial results continue to be strong and after several quarters out of the market we once again entered the market to repurchase Timberland shares. At June 30, 2019, Timberland had 219,062 shares available to repurchase in accordance with the terms of its current stock repurchase plan.”

Operating Results

Operating revenue (net interest income before the provision for loan losses, plus non-interest income excluding recoveries on investment securities, gains on sale of investment securities and BOLI payouts) increased 27% to $16.37 million from $12.85 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and increased 5% from $15.66 million for the preceding quarter. Operating revenue increased 25% to $47.61 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 from $38.09 million for the comparable period one year ago.

Net interest income for the current quarter increased 33% to $12.94 million from $9.73 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and increased 2% from $12.73 million for the preceding quarter. For the first nine months of fiscal 2019 net interest income increased 32% to $38.01 million from $28.79 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2018.

Timberland’s net interest margin (“NIM”) for the current quarter increased to 4.49% from 4.18% for the comparable quarter one year ago and compressed slightly from 4.51% for the preceding quarter. The NIM for the current quarter was increased by approximately six basis points due to the accretion of $69,000 of the fair value discount on loans acquired in the South Sound Merger and the collection of $88,000 of non-accrual interest. The NIM for the comparable quarter one year ago was not impacted by accretion or the collection of non-accrual interest. The NIM for the preceding quarter was increased by approximately 11 basis points due to the accretion of $301,000 of the fair value discount on loans acquired in the South Sound Merger and the collection of $16,000 of non-accrual interest. Timberland’s net interest margin for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 increased to 4.49% from 4.19% for the first nine months of fiscal 2018.

Non-interest income increased 12% to $3.54 million for the current quarter from $3.15 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and decreased 10% from $3.94 million for the preceding quarter. The decrease in non-interest income compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to a $968,000 decrease in BOLI income and smaller decreases in several other categories. BOLI income was higher in the preceding quarter due to a $1.00 million BOLI payout. Partially offsetting these decreases to non-interest income was a $233,000 increase in ATM and debit card interchange income, a $232,000 increase in gain on sale of loans and smaller increases in several other categories. The increase in ATM and debit card interchange income was primarily due to an increase in the dollar volume of debit card transactions. The increase in gain on sale of loans was primarily due to an increase in the dollar amount of fixed rate one- to four-family loans sold. Fiscal year-to-date non-interest income increased 15% to $10.74 million from $9.36 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2018, primarily due to the increased BOLI income.

Total operating expenses for the current quarter decreased 3% to $8.97 million from $9.28 million for the preceding quarter and increased 26% from $7.12 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. The decrease in expenses for the current quarter compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to decreases in salaries and employee benefits expense and data processing related expenses as direct and indirect expenses related to the Bank’s core operating system conversions were lower compared to the preceding quarter. During the current quarter, system conversion expenses of $435,000 were incurred compared to $616,000 for preceding quarter. The efficiency ratio improved to 54.43% for the current quarter compared to 55.66% for the preceding quarter and 55.33% for the comparable quarter one year ago.

Fiscal year-to-date operating expenses increased 25% to $26.81 million from $21.52 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2018, primarily as a result of the South Sound Merger and expenses associated with the core operating system conversion. The efficiency ratio improved for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 to 54.98% from 56.41% for the first nine months of fiscal 2018.

The provision for income taxes for the current quarter increased $275,000 to $1.55 million from $1.28 million for the preceding quarter. Timberland’s effective tax rate was 20.7% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to 17.3% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 23.2% for the quarter ended one year ago. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was decreased by approximately 270 basis points due to non-taxable income recorded from a BOLI payout. The comparison to the quarter one year ago was impacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts legislation, which was signed into law on December 22, 2017 and decreased the federal corporate income tax rate to 21.0% from 35.0%. As a result of the new legislation, Timberland used a blended federal income tax rate of 24.5% for its 2018 fiscal year. Effective with the beginning of the current fiscal year (October 1, 2018) Timberland began using a 21.0% federal income tax rate.

Balance Sheet Management

Total assets increased $6.76 million, or 1%, to $1.25 billion at June 30, 2019, from $1.24 billion at March 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to a $15.45 million increase in CDs held for investment and smaller increases in several other categories. These increases were partially offset by a $3.79 million decrease in investment securities, a $3.75 million decrease in total cash and cash equivalents and smaller decreases in several other categories.

Net loans receivable increased $698,000, during the current quarter to $873.98 million at June 30, 2019, from $873.28 million at March 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to a $4.18 million increase in land loans, a $1.79 million net increase in construction loans, a $1.56 million increase in commercial real estate loans, a $1.30 million decrease in undisbursed construction loans in progress and smaller increases in several other categories. These increases to net loans receivable were partially offset by a $4.44 million decrease in multi-family loans, a $2.89 million decrease in commercial business loans, a $1.36 million decrease in 1-4 family mortgage loans, and smaller decreases in several other categories.

Timberland originated $83.30 million in loans during the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $64.47 million for the preceding quarter and $70.46 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. Timberland continues to sell fixed-rate one- to four-family mortgage loans into the secondary market for asset-liability management purposes and to generate non-interest income. Timberland also periodically sells the guaranteed portion of U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans. During the third quarter of fiscal 2019 fixed-rate one- to four-family mortgage loans and SBA loans totaling $19.91 million were sold compared to $12.16 million for the preceding quarter and $17.74 million for the comparable quarter one year ago.

Investment securities and CDs held for investment increased $11.66 million, or 11%, to $121.81 million at June 30, 2019, from $110.18 million at March 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to the purchase of additional CDs held for investment.

Timberland’s liquidity continues to remain strong. Liquidity, as measured by the sum of cash and cash equivalents, CDs held for investment and available for sale investment securities, was 23.6% of total liabilities at June 30, 2019, compared to 22.6% at March 31, 2019, and 25.0% one year ago.

Total deposits increased $941,000 during the current quarter to $1.073 billion at June 30, 2019, from $1.072 billion at March 31, 2019. The quarterly increase consisted of a $5.57 million increase in certificates of deposit account balances and a $214,000 increase in non-interest bearing demand account balances. These increases were partially offset by a $2.95 million decrease in money market account balances, a $1.75 million decrease in savings account balances and a $150,000 decrease in NOW checking account balances.

Shareholders’ Equity

Total shareholders’ equity increased $3.93 million to $166.27 million at June 30, 2019, from $162.34 million at March 31, 2019. The increase in shareholders’ equity was primarily due to net income of $5.96 million for the quarter, which was partially offset by dividend payments to shareholders of $2.08 million.

During the quarter, Timberland repurchased 2,831 shares of its common stock for $70,000 (an average price of $24.89 per share). Timberland had 219,062 shares available to be repurchased on its existing stock repurchase plan at June 30, 2019.

Capital Ratios and Asset Quality

Timberland remains well capitalized with a total risk-based capital ratio of 18.91% and a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 12.32% at June 30, 2019.

Asset quality remains strong with a non-performing assets to total assets ratio of 0.43% at June 30, 2019, compared to 0.56% one year ago and 0.41% at March 31, 2019.

No provision for loan losses was made for the quarters ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019, and June 30, 2018. There were net charge-offs of $110,000 for the current quarter compared to a net recovery of $208,000 for the preceding quarter and net charge-offs of $12,000 for the comparable quarter one year ago. The allowance for loan losses to loans receivable was 1.09% at June 30, 2019 compared to 1.10% at March 30, 2019 and 1.31% at June 30, 2018. The decrease in the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans receivable over the past year was primarily a result of an increase in loans from the South Sound Merger. Included in the recorded value of loans acquired in mergers are net discounts which may reduce the need for an allowance for loan losses on such loans because they are carried at an amount below their outstanding principal balance. The recorded value of loans acquired in the South Sound Merger was $123.62 million and the related fair value discount was $2.08 million, or 1.68% of the loans acquired. The remaining fair value discount on loans acquired in the South Sound Merger was $1.57 million at June 30, 2019. The allowance for loan losses to loans receivable (excluding the remaining balance of the loans acquired in the South Sound Merger) was 1.23% (non-GAAP) at June 30, 2019.

Total delinquent loans (past due 30 days or more) and non-accrual loans decreased $54,000, or 2%, to $3.52 million at June 30, 2019, from $3.57 million at March 31, 2019, and increased $95,000, or 3%, from $3.43 million one year ago. Non-accrual loans increased $605,000, or 22%, to $3.35 million at June 30, 2019, from $2.75 million at March 31, 2019, and increased $644,000, or 24%, from $2.71 million one year ago.

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. Timberland believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with information useful in understanding the Company’s financial performance; however, readers of this report are urged to review these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP results as reported.

Financial measures that exclude intangible assets are non-GAAP measures. To provide investors with a broader understanding of capital adequacy Timberland provides non-GAAP financial measures for tangible common equity along with the GAAP measure. Tangible common equity is calculated as shareholders’ equity less goodwill and CDI. In addition, tangible assets equal total assets less goodwill and CDI.

The following table provides a reconciliation of ending shareholders’ equity (GAAP) to ending tangible shareholders’ equity (non-GAAP), and ending total assets (GAAP) to ending tangible assets (non-GAAP).

Acquisition of South Sound Bank

On October 1, 2018, the Company completed the acquisition of South Sound Bank, a Washington-state chartered bank, headquartered in Olympia, Washington (“South Sound Merger”). The Company acquired 100% of the outstanding common stock of South Sound Bank, and South Sound Bank was merged into Timberland Bank and the Company. Pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement, South Sound Bank shareholders received 0.746 of a share of the Company’s common stock and $5.68825 in cash per share of South Sound Bank common stock. The Company issued 904,826 shares of its common stock (valued at $28,267,000 based on the Company’s closing stock price on September 30, 2018 of $31.24 per share) and paid $6,903,000 in cash in the transaction for total consideration paid of $35,170,000.

The South Sound Merger was accounted for as a business combination. Accordingly, Timberland’s cost to acquire South Sound Bank was allocated to the assets acquired (including identifiable intangible assets) and liabilities assumed of South Sound Bank at their respective estimated fair values as of the acquisition date. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired was allocated to goodwill.

The following table summarizes the fair value of consideration transferred, the estimated fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at October 1, 2018, and the resulting goodwill from the transaction ($ in thousands):
