WOOSTER, Ohio, July 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wayne Savings Bancshares, Inc. (OTCQX: WAYN), (the “Company”), the holding company parent of Wayne Savings Community Bank, reported record net income (unaudited) of $4.1 million, or $1.75 per common share, for the year to date period ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $397,000, or 10.8%, compared to $3.7 million, or $1.49 per common share, for the same period ended June 30, 2021. The increase in net income was due to an increase in net interest income and an increase in non-interest income partially offset with an increase in non-interest expenses.

The Company reported net income (unaudited) of $2.0 million, or $0.88 per common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $217,000, or 12.0%, compared to $1.8 million, or $0.73 per common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. The increase in net income was due to an increase in net interest income, partially offset with a decrease in non-interest income and an increase in non-interest expenses. The return on average equity and return on average assets for the second quarter of 2022 was 17.37% and 1.23%, respectively, compared to 13.53% and 1.15%, for the same period in 2021.

  • Noninterest income totaled $599,000, a decrease of $138,000, or 18.7%, from $737,000 for the quarter ended June 2021, caused by a decline in mortgage loans sold during the 2022 quarter, partially offset with increased deposit fees.

2022 Year-to-Date Business Highlights

Net interest income was $10.3 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $862,000, or 9.2%, compared to the same period in 2021 as the six-month average net loan balances increased $72.5 million from the June 30, 2021 period. Net interest margin for the six months ended June 30, 2022, rose by 10 basis points to 3.30%. The average yield on interest-earning assets increased 1 basis point and the average rate on interest-bearing liabilities declined by 9 basis points due to the persistence of the market’s low interest rates. Interest income on loans increased by $523,000, or 5.4%, as average balances increased for the six-month period at June 30, 2021 of $403.2 million, to $475.7 million for the period ended June 30, 2022. Loan interest yields declined 51 bps to 4.33% for the six-month period ending June 30, 2022, compared to 4.84% for the same period in 2021, primarily due to $937,000 deferred fees related to the Paycheck Protection Program loans recognized in 2021.   Interest income on investment securities and interest earning cash balances increased by $167,000 while the average balance decreased $37.3 million to $143.4 million at June 30, 2022. Average yields increased from 1.05% for the six-month period ending June 30, 2021, to 1.56% for the 2022 period as the Federal Reserve began raising interest rates. Deposit interest expense decreased $38,000 despite an increase in the average deposit balances of $53.4 million as the average rate declined by 6 bps.

  • Net loan balances increased from $454.6 million at December 31, 2021, to $514.9 million at June 30, 2022, an increase of $60.3 million, or 26.5% of annualized growth consisting mainly of commercial real estate loans and one to four residential mortgage loans.

  • Provision for loan losses was $431,000 for the six-month period ending June 30, 2022, compared to $441,000 for the same period in the prior year. This decrease in provision for loan losses expense was mainly due to the improved economic factors compared to the COVID-19 virus outlook on the local economy in 2021 and reduced specific reserve required on loans evaluated for impairment for the June 30, 2022 period.

  • Noninterest income totaled $1.5 million, an increase of $112,000, or 8.3%, from $1.4 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021, caused by a gain of $229,000 on the sale of foreclosed assets held for sale was recorded during the six-month period ended June 30, 2022.

  • Noninterest expense totaled $6.3 million for the year-to-date period ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $522,000, or 9.0%, compared to the June 30, 2021 six-month period. The increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and employee benefits expense. The Company’s efficiency ratio was 53.6% for both six-month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021.

June 30, 2022 Financial Condition

At June 30, 2022, the Company had total assets of $654.2 million, an increase of $18.2 million, from December 31, 2021. The growth in total assets includes a $60.3 million increase in net loans, partially offset by a decrease of $35.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, as compared to December 31, 2021.

The allowance for loan losses was $5.9 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $5.4 million at December 31, 2021. The allowance for loan losses and the related provision for loan losses is based on management’s judgment and evaluation of the loan portfolio. Management believes the current allowance for loan losses is adequate, however, changing economic and other conditions may require future adjustments to the allowance for loan losses.

Total nonperforming loans declined to $796,000 at June 30, 2022 from $1.2 million at December 31, 2021, as the Bank received payoffs of two nonperforming loans from a single customer totaling $402,000. Past due loan balances of 30 days and more decreased from $3.3 million at December 31, 2021, to $2.0 million at June 30, 2022, mainly due to lower commercial loan delinquencies.

Total liabilities increased $29.6 million from December 31,2021 to June 30, 2022 mainly due to an increase in deposits accounts of $27.3 million. The “Platinum” checking accounts increased $10.2 million. The Platinum checking account products, available to both businesses and individuals, represent $156.1 million of our deposit balances at June 30, 2022. Basic business checking accounts balances at June 30, 2022 were $71.1 million.

Total stockholders’ equity declined by $11.4 million in the first half of 2022. The Company earned $4.1 million of net income for the six months ended June 30, 2022, exceeding 2021 by 10.8%. The Company repurchased treasury shares of $4.9 million from a single shareholder and paid $1.0 million in dividends during the period. Accumulated other comprehensive loss increased by $9.6 million primarily due to an increase in gross unrealized loss on securities available for sale as market interest rates increased.
