First Northwest Bancorp Reports Results of Operations for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2016

/EIN News/ -- PORT ANGELES, Wash., Aug. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Northwest Bancorp (NASDAQ:FNWB) (“Company”), the holding company for First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Port Angeles (“Bank”), announced its operating results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2016. On January 29, 2015, the Company completed its stock offering in connection with the Bank's conversion from the mutual to stock form of organization ("Conversion"). Accordingly, the results prior to that time relate solely to the operations of the Bank. The Company reported net income of $1.2 million, or $0.10 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, an increase of $257,000, or 28.7%, compared to net income of $897,000, or $0.07 per share, for the prior quarter ended March 31, 2016, and was $396,000, or 52.2%, higher than the same quarter in 2015. Net income increased mainly due to increased balances and related interest and fees on loans receivable coupled with net gains on sales of investment securities that exceeded prepayment penalties on Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances. Net income for the year ended June 30, 2016 was $4.0 million, or $0.33 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.1 million, or $(0.42) per share, for the year ended June 30, 2015. The loss in fiscal 2015 was primarily due to the $9.7 million charitable contribution associated with the funding of the First Federal Community Foundation (the "Foundation").

Larry Hueth, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, "We continue to be pleased with our loan and deposit growth driven by geographic expansion and improving local conditions. Opportunities to deploy liquidity from our investment portfolio into higher yielding loans and improve our net interest margin and earnings were also successfully executed during the quarter, resulting in our net interest margin increasing to 3.08% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from 3.06% for the previous quarter. Asset quality metrics remain satisfactory, with nonperforming loans to total loans at 0.5% at June 30, 2016, compared to 0.7% at March 31, 2016 and 1.0% at June 30, 2015, and the provision for loan losses taken during the quarter was mainly attributable to loan growth. While I am pleased with the steady progress we have achieved, additional efforts will be necessary to improve earnings and increase shareholder value as we continue to invest in geographic expansion, technology, compliance and risk management, and personnel."

Fourth Quarter highlights (at or for the quarter ended June 30, 2016)

  • Total assets increased $14.7 million, or 1.5%, to $1.0 billion;
  • Net loans increased $45.5 million, or 7.9%, as a result of new loan originations and loan pool purchase activity;
  • Customer deposits increased $13.5 million, or 1.9%, throughout our branch network, including increases at our Bellingham and Silverdale locations of $6.4 million and $1.5 million, respectively;
  • As of June 30, 2016, we repurchased 423,700, or 3.2% of total shares we initially issued in the Conversion, at an average price of $12.98 per share, for future issuance under our 2015 Equity Incentive Plan;
  • Net income increased $257,000, or 28.7%, primarily due to an increase in noninterest income;
  • Earnings per share increased to $0.10 compared to $0.07 for the quarter ended March 31, 2016;
  • Net interest income increased $333,000, or 4.80%, primarily due to an increase in the balance of loans receivable;
  • Net gain on sale of securities was $711,000, partially offset by FHLB prepayment penalties of $414,000, as we continue to pay down higher cost, long-term FHLB advances and take advantage of market conditions allowing us to sell investment securities at a gain.

Balance Sheet Review

During the quarter, total assets increased $14.7 million, or 1.5%, to $1.0 billion at June 30, 2016 from $995.4 million at March 31, 2016, and year over year, total assets increased $73.3 million, or 7.8%, from $936.8 million at June 30, 2015, primarily due to increases in net loans receivable. Net loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $45.5 million, or 7.9%, during the quarter to $619.8 million at June 30, 2016 and increased $132.0 million, or 27.0%, as compared to June 30, 2015, primarily due to new loan originations coupled with the purchase of one- to four-family residential loan pools. Investment securities decreased $33.5 million, or 9.4%, during the quarter and decreased $36.7 million, or 10.2%, compared to the same period in the prior year as we continued to use cash flows from sales, calls, and normal amortization and prepayment activity of investment securities to fund loan growth.

The increase in net loans, excluding loans held for sale, during the quarter ended June 30, 2016 was mainly attributable to an increase in commercial real estate of $20.1 million, construction and land of $15.7 million, one- to four-family residential loans of $9.6 million, commercial business loans of $1.3 million, and consumer loans of $422,000, partially offset by decreases in multi-family and home equity loans of $1.4 million and $292,000, respectively. Compared to the same period in the prior year, the increase in net loans was mainly attributable to an increase in one- to four-family residential loans of $51.8 million, commercial real estate of $35.6 million, construction and land of $31.2 million, multi-family of $13.0 million, commercial business loans of $2.2 million, and other consumer loans of $825,000, partially offset by a decrease in home equity loans of $2.5 million. We continue to focus on increasing our loan balances as a percentage of earning assets. We expect to increase our originations of one- to four-family residential loans held for sale as we begin operations at our Home Lending Center in Seattle, Washington during the first fiscal quarter of 2017.

During the year ended June 30, 2016, the Company originated $217.0 million of loans, of which $78.1 million, or 36.0%, were originated in the North Olympic Peninsula, $122.8 million, or 56.6%, in the Puget Sound region of Washington, and $16.1 million, or 7.4%, in other areas in Washington. In addition to loans originated during the year, the Company purchased $55.1 million one- to four-family residential loans, secured by properties primarily located in Washington and California, and participated with another bank on $4.0 million of construction and land loans.

The securities portfolio decreased $36.7 million to $323.9 million at June 30, 2016 compared to the prior year. Mortgage-backed securities represented the largest portion of the investment portfolio and were $223.9 million at June 30, 2016, a decrease during the year of $6.4 million, or 2.8%, and other investment securities, including municipal bonds and other asset backed securities, were $100.0 million at June 30, 2016, a decrease of $30.3 million, or 23.2%, during the year. Investments decreased due to sales, calls, and normal amortization and prepayment activity during the quarter and fiscal year. The gain on sale of securities during the quarter and fiscal year were mainly intended to offset prepayment penalties on the early repayment of long-term FHLB advances.

Total liabilities increased $74.2 million, or 10.0%, to $820.4 million at June 30, 2016 from $746.1 million at June 30, 2015. The increase during the year was primarily the result of a $76.1 million, or 11.8%, increase in deposits to $723.3 million at June 30, 2016, from $647.2 million at June 30, 2015. Transaction and savings account deposits increased $65.0 million, or 13.0%, to $564.2 million at June 30, 2016 from $499.2 million at June 30, 2015. During the year, certificates of deposit increased $11.2 million, or 7.6%, to $159.1 million at June 30, 2016 from $147.9 million at June 30, 2015. Deposit account increases were primarily the result of business and consumer development efforts with new and existing customers. At June 30, 2016, our branches in Silverdale and Bellingham, Washington had $34.5 million and $17.7 million in customer deposits, respectively. Borrowings, consisting primarily of long term advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank, decreased $9.4 million, or 10.4%, to $80.7 million at June 30, 2016 from $90.0 million at June 30, 2015 as Federal Home Loan Bank cash management advances and longer-term fixed-rate advances were repaid.

Total equity decreased $940,000, or 0.5%, during the year to $189.7 million at June 30, 2016 from $190.7 million at June 30, 2015. The decrease during the year was the result of a decrease of $5.5 million related to the repurchase of shares, at an average price of $12.98, intended to be issued in the future pursuant to the Company's 2015 Equity Incentive Plan and a decrease of $576,000 for the purchase and allocation of shares for the Employee Stock Ownership Plan ("ESOP"), offset by an increase from net income of $4.0 million and an increase of $1.1 million related to unrealized changes in the market value of available for sale securities.

Capital Ratios and Credit Quality

At June 30, 2016, the Bank exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with Tier 1 Leverage-Based Capital, Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital (CET1), and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios of 13.77%, 21.36%, 21.36%, and 22.55%, respectively. Tier 1 Leverage-Based Capital, Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital (CET1), and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios were 14.53%, 23.76%, 23.76%, and 25.01%, respectively, at June 30, 2015. First Northwest Bancorp, the holding company for the Bank, was also well-capitalized at June 30, 2016.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2016, nonperforming loans decreased $616,000, or 15.9%, to $3.3 million, primarily due to a decrease of $565,000 in nonperforming one- to four-family residential loans. Compared to the same period in 2015, nonperforming loans decreased $1.6 million, or 33.3%, primarily due to a decrease in nonperforming one-to-four family residential loans of $1.8 million, partially offset by an increase in nonperforming commercial real estate loans of $327,000. Nonperforming loans to total loans decreased to 0.5% at June 30, 2016 from 1.0% at June 30, 2015. During the year, real estate owned and repossessed assets decreased $1.8 million, or 95.8%, to $81,000 at June 30, 2016 from $1.9 million at June 30, 2015. Classified loans declined to $4.6 million at June 30, 2016 from $4.9 million at March 31, 2016 and $9.9 million on June 30, 2015. Our allowance for loan losses was $7.2 million, $7.0 million, and $7.1 million, or 1.2%, 1.2%, and 1.4% of total loans receivable, at June 30, 2016, March 31, 2016, and June 30, 2015, respectively. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of nonperforming loans increased to 222.3% at June 30, 2016 from 180.4% at March 31, 2016, and from 145.6% at June 30, 2015.

Operating Results

Net interest income increased $1.3 million to $7.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, from $6.0 million for the same period the prior year. Net interest income increased $4.5 million to $27.4 million for the year ended June 30, 2016, from $22.9 million for the year ended June 30, 2015. Total interest income increased $1.3 million, or 17.9%, to $8.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from $7.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 and increased $4.7 million, or 17.1%, to $32.2 million for the year ended June 30, 2016 from $27.5 million for the prior year. The increase in interest income was primarily related to the increase in average balance of, and the interest and fees earned on, net loans receivable.

Total interest expense remained virtually unchanged at $1.2 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2016, March 31, 2016, and June 30, 2015. Total interest expense increased $178,000 to $4.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2016 from $4.6 million for the year ended June 30, 2015, primarily due to an increase in the cost and the average balance of deposits during the year.

The net interest margin increased two basis points to 3.08% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, from 3.06% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, and increased 36 basis points from 2.72% compared to the same quarter in 2015. Net interest margin increased 19 basis points to 2.98% for the year ended June 30, 2016, from 2.79% for the same period in 2015. The net interest margin continued to increase compared to the previous quarter and the same quarter last year due primarily to increases in the average balance of loans receivable.

The provision for loan losses was $233,000 during the quarter and year ended June 30, 2016, compared to no provision for loan losses for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2015. Provisions for loan losses were taken during the quarter primarily as a result of loan growth and our assessment of related credit risk.

Noninterest income increased $934,000 to $2.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from $1.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, primarily due to a net gain on sale of investment securities of $711,000 and an increase in net gain on sale of loans of $126,000 during the quarter. Noninterest income increased $692,000 compared to the same quarter in the prior year primarily due to the gain on sale of investment securities. Noninterest income increased $1.5 million to $6.2 million for the year ended June 30, 2016 from $4.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2015. This increase during the year was due primarily to a net increase in the gain on sale of investment securities of $1.6 million as we continued to look for opportunities in the investment portfolio to sell investment securities at gains to offset penalties on the early repayment of FHLB advances.

Noninterest expense increased $575,000 to $7.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from $6.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, primarily due to a prepayment penalty on the early repayment of long-term FHLB advances of $414,000 and increases in compensation and benefits of $252,000 partially offset by a decrease in other expenses of $102,000. Noninterest expense increased $1.1 million, or 17.6%, compared to $6.3 million for the same period in 2015. Similarly, noninterest expense increased compared to the same quarter in the prior year primarily as a result of increased compensation and benefits expense of $679,000 and the prepayment penalty on FHLB advances. Compared to the prior fiscal year, noninterest expense decreased $5.1 million, or 15.6%, to $27.9 million for the year ended June 30, 2016 from $33.0 million for the year ended June 30, 2015. The decrease in noninterest expense for the year was primarily the result of charitable contributions of $9.9 million during the fiscal year 2015, primarily as a result of the establishment of the Foundation in connection with the Conversion. This decrease was partially offset by increases in compensation and benefits of $1.8 million, professional fees of $694,000, other expenses of $469,000, occupancy, equipment, depreciation and amortization of $434,000, and a decrease in expenses related to real estate owned and repossessed assets of $472,000.
