Riverview Bancorp Reports Third Quarter Results

Riverview Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq GSM: RVSB). (“Riverview” or the “Company”) today reported a net loss of $16.6 million, or $0.74 per share, in its third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011, compared to net income of $579,000, or $0.03 per share, in its third fiscal quarter a year ago. The Company’s financial results were impacted by the previously announced increase in the provision for loan losses of $8.1 million as well as the establishment of an $8.7 million deferred tax asset valuation allowance.

Highlights (at or for the period ended December 31, 2011)
  • Credit Quality: Nonperforming loans (NPLs) increased to $32.0 million, or 4.61% of total loans. Real estate owned (REO) decreased to $20.7 million from $25.6 million at September 30, 2011.
  • Capital and Liquidity: The Company remains very well capitalized with total risk-based capital ratio of 13.14% and a tangible common equity ratio of 7.84%. Liquidity remains strong with no outstanding borrowings and increased on-balance sheet liquidity.
  • Balance Sheet Review: Branch deposit growth remained strong during the quarter. Branch deposits increased $9.6 million and total deposits increased $5.8 million during the quarter. Average deposits increased $18.4 million during the quarter and $31.6 million from the same quarter as the prior year. Loan balances decreased $2.2 million as loan growth has continued to be challenging. Average loan balances decreased $1.7 million during the quarter.
  • Net Interest Margin: The net interest margin during the third fiscal quarter was 4.21%.
  • Income Statement: Net loss was $16.6 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, as a result of the increase in the provision for loan losses and the deferred tax asset valuation.
  • Deferred Tax Asset Valuation: The Company established a deferred tax asset valuation allowance of $8.7 million. This allowance represents a non-cash accounting entry that may be reversed in future periods if, among other considerations, the Company returns to sustained profitability. Reversals of this allowance would increase the Company’s net income in these future periods.

“The decision to significantly adjust our loan loss provision will help position Riverview not only for recovery and financial growth, but continued long-term success in an economy that remains frustratingly sluggish,” said Pat Sheaffer, Chairman and CEO. “The good news is that we will be strengthened by this move and our liquidity and capital levels remain strong. We are fortunate to have a solid net interest margin, a growing customer base and successful core operations. It was because of these strong capital levels that we were able to establish this valuation allowance and remain well-capitalized with no impact on our customers or our core business operations.”
