Riverview Bancorp Reports Fiscal Fourth Quarter And Year End Results

Riverview Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:RVSB) (“Riverview” or the “Company”) today reported a net loss of $12.8 million, or $0.57 per share, in its fourth fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012, compared to a net loss of $16.6 million, or $0.74 per share in the preceding quarter and net income of $854,000, or $0.04 per share, in its fourth fiscal quarter a year ago. The Company’s financial results were impacted by the previously announced increase in the provision for loan losses of $14.3 million during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2012.

For the fiscal year, Riverview reported a net loss of $28.5 million, or $1.28 per share, compared to net income of $4.3 million, or $0.24 per share, for fiscal year 2011. Riverview’s fiscal year 2012 results include a deferred tax asset valuation allowance of $15.7 million. The valuation 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 Riverview’s net income in these future periods.

“For the second consecutive quarter we have significantly increased our loan loss provision in an effort to position Riverview for recovery in an economy that remains sluggish,” said Pat Sheaffer, Chairman and CEO. “We continue to focus on strengthening the Bank and working diligently, side by side with our clients on problem assets. Riverview remains an important economic participant as one of the few community banks in the region and the only community bank headquartered in Clark County.”

Credit Quality

Riverview recorded a $14.3 million provision for loan losses in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, compared to $8.1 million in the preceding quarter and $500,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011. The increase in the provision for loan losses was the result of recently updated appraisals received on several properties as well as the Company’s ongoing internal loan reviews. The allowance for loan losses was $18.6 million at March 31, 2012, representing 2.71% of total loans and 41.27% of non-performing loans (NPLs). NPLs increased to $45.0 million, or 6.56% of total loans at March 31, 2012, compared to $32.0 million, or 4.61% of total loans at December 31, 2011 and $12.3 million, or 1.79% of total loans, a year ago.
