HONOLULU, Oct. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Territorial Bancorp Inc. (NASDAQ: TBNK) (the ‘'Company”), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $4.16 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.23 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on November 24, 2021 to stockholders of record as of November 11, 2021.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are pleased with our results for the third quarter. The residential real estate market in Hawaii continues to be strong and the level of new mortgage loan applications remains elevated. Our strong capital position, asset quality and liquidity has allowed us to perform well despite the uncertainties created by COVID-19.”   

Interest Income

Net interest income decreased to $13.86 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $14.46 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Total interest income was $15.28 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $17.13 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The $1.86 million decrease in total interest income was primarily due to a $2.79 million decrease in interest earned on loans. The decrease in interest income on loans was partially offset by a $987,000 increase in interest income on investment securities. The decline in interest income on loans was due to a 24 basis point decrease in the average yield on loans receivable and a $210.35 million decrease in the average loan balance. The decrease in the average yield on loans occurred because of the payoff of higher yielding loans and the addition of new lower yielding loans to the loan portfolio. The decrease in the average loan balance occurred as loan repayments and sales of loans exceeded the origination of new loans. The increase in interest income on investment securities occurred because of a $294.23 million increase in the average balance of investment securities which was partially offset by a 73 basis point decrease in the average securities yield. The increase in the average balance of investment securities occurred as security purchases exceeded repayments and the sale of securities.   The decrease in the average securities yield occurred due to the payoff of higher yielding securities and the addition of new lower yielding securities to the investment portfolio.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense decreased to $1.41 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $2.67 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Interest expense on deposits decreased by $1.05 million to $844,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $1.90 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in interest expense on deposits was primarily due to a 27 basis point decrease in the average cost of deposits. The decrease in the average cost of deposits occurred as the interest rates offered on deposits were lowered in response to the decline in market interest rates. Interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances decreased by $202,000 to $522,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $724,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in interest expense on FHLB advances resulted from a 57 basis point decrease in the average cost of advances. The decrease in the average cost of advances occurred as the Company restructured $102.00 million of FHLB advances at lower interest rates in prior quarters. The Company reversed loan loss provisions of $167,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to loan loss provisions of $692,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The reversal of the loan loss provisions during the three months ended September 30, 2021 occurred primarily because of the decreases in the size of the mortgage loan portfolio, in Hawaii’s unemployment rate and in the amount of loans in the payment deferral program, all of which contributed to the reduction in the allowance for loan losses.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $1.22 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $1.58 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to a $295,000 decrease in service fees on loans and deposit accounts and a $183,000 decrease in the gain on the sale of loans. The decrease in service fees on loans and deposit accounts occurred because of a decline in the fees earned for referring mortgage loans to other financial institutions and mortgage brokers. The decrease in the gain on sale of loans occurred as fewer mortgage loans were sold. The decreases in service fees on loan and deposit accounts and in gain on sale of loans were partially offset by a $142,000 increase in the gain on sale of investment securities. The increase in the gain on sale of investment securities occurred as more investment securities were sold during the three months ended September 30, 2021 than during the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $9.56 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $9.39 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Salaries and benefits expense increased by $147,000 to $5.49 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $5.35 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in salaries and benefit expenses occurred primarily because of an increase in health insurance and employee stock ownership plan expenses. In the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company received a one-time credit against its health premiums from one of its health insurance carriers because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Employee stock ownership plan expenses rose in the three months ended September 30, 2021 because of an increase in the price of the Company’s stock, which is used to calculate this expense.   The increases in health insurance and employee stock ownership expenses was partially offset by a decrease in stock benefit plan expenses. Other general and administrative expenses increased by $169,000 to $1.22 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $1.05 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in general and administrative expenses is primarily due to increases in advertising expenses.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $1.53 million compared to $1.65 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in income tax expense was primarily due to a $274,000 decrease in income before taxes during the three months ended September 30, 2021 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $2.12 billion at September 30, 2021 and $2.11 billion at December 31, 2020. Loans receivable decreased by $104.73 million to $1.30 billion at September 30, 2021 from $1.41 billion at December 31, 2020. The decrease in loans receivable occurred as loan repayments and sales exceeded new loan originations. Investment securities increased by $370.21 million to $621.42 million at September 30, 2021 from $251.20 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in investment securities occurred as the purchase of new mortgage-backed securities exceeded principal repayments and the sale of securities. Cash and cash equivalents decreased to $101.39 million at September 30, 2021 from $363.54 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents occurred because of the purchase of investment securities. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $251.69 million at September 30, 2021 from $248.71 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in stockholders’ equity occurred as the Company’s net income and the increase in capital from the allocation of ESOP shares exceeded dividends paid to shareholders and share repurchases.

Capital Management

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company repurchased 79,398 shares. Through September 30, 2021, the Company repurchased 3,886,348 shares in all of its share repurchase programs. The shares repurchased represent 31.77% of the total shares issued in its initial public offering.

The Company had $99,000 of delinquent mortgage loans 90 days or more past due at September 30, 2021 compared to $240,000 of delinquent mortgage loans 90 days or more past due at December 31, 2020. Delinquent loans exclude loans which are receiving loan payment deferrals because of COVID-19. Non-performing assets totaled $4.25 million at September 30, 2021 compared to $4.41 million at December 31, 2020. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 0.20% at September 30, 2021 and 0.21% at December 31, 2020. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2021 was $2.80 million and represented 0.21% of total loans compared to $4.26 million and 0.30% of total loans as of December 31, 2020.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $19.99 million of loans, or 1.53% of total loans receivable in its payment deferral program that are not receiving full principal and interest payments. These loans are receiving interest and escrow payments.   As of June 30, 2021, the Company had $25.62 million, or 1.95% of total loans receivable, in its payment deferral program. In this program, the Company allowed borrowers, who experienced financial hardship because of COVID-19, to defer payments on their loans. The decrease in the amount of loans in the payment deferral program occurred as borrowers opted out of the program and repaid any deferred loan payments.
