Anchor Bancorp Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Earnings

Stocks in this article: ANCB

Operating Results

Anchor Bancorp had net income of $225,000 or $.09 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared to a net income of $93,000 or $0.04 per diluted share for the same period in 2011. For the six months ended December 31, 2012, net income was $503,000 or $.20 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $1.6 million or $.66 per diluted share for the comparable period in 2011.

Net interest income. Net interest income before the provision for loan losses decreased $329,000, or 7.9%, to $3.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 from $4.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. For the six months ended December 31, 2012 net interest income before the provision for loan losses decreased $531,000 or 6.4% to $7.8 million from $8.3 million for the same period in 2011.    

The Company's net interest margin decreased 15 basis points to 3.54% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 from 3.69% for the comparable period in 2011. The average yield on interest-earning assets decreased 42 basis points to 4.67% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 5.09% for the same period in the prior year. The decline in the yield on interest-earnings assets was primarily attributable to the decrease in loan volume and the downward repricing of investment securities. The average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 29 basis points to 1.32% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 1.61% for the same period in the prior year.

Provision for loan losses. In connection with its analysis of the loan portfolio at December 31, 2012 management determined that a provision for loan losses of $225,000 was required for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to $475,000 for the same period of the prior year.   The provision for loan losses decreased by $475,000 to $525,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2012 from $1.0 million for the same period last year.

Noninterest income. Noninterest income decreased $643,000, or 32.8%, to $1.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to $2.0 million for the same quarter a year ago. The decrease in noninterest income was attributable to a combination of several factors:   there was no gain on sale of investments for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $686,000 for quarter ended December 31, 2011 and deposit service fees declined $122,000. These decreases were partially offset by an increase of $259,000 for gain on sale of loans for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The increase in the amount of gain on sale of loans was the result of a greater volume of loans sold into the secondary market during the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2011, which was attributable to increased demand for one-to-four family loans as a result of refinancing activity. Noninterest income decreased $720,000 or 21.1% to $2.7 million during the six months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $3.4 million for the same period in 2011. The decrease was primarily due to no gain on sales of investments compared to $879,000 for the same period in prior year and a $261,000 decline in deposit service fees partially offset by a $448,000 increase in gain on sales of loans.   

Noninterest expense. Noninterest expense decreased $854,000, or 15.4%, to $4.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 from $5.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease was primarily due to expenses related to information technology which decreased $383,000 or 50.6% to $374,000 from $757,000 and to decline in REO related expenses.   Real estate owned impairment expense decreased $256,000 or 54.6% to $213,000 from $469,000 during the second fiscal quarter 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, reflecting the stabilization in the real estate market.  Noninterest expense decreased $2.9 million in the six months ended December 31, 2012 to $9.5 million from $12.4 million for the six months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease for information technology of $1.3 million which was related to core conversion costs and a decrease in REO impairment expense of $1.1 million in the same period in 2011.

Forward-Looking Statements:

Certain matters discussed in this press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, expectations of the business environment in which we operate, projections of future performance, perceived opportunities in the market, potential future credit experience, and statements regarding our mission and vision. These forward-looking statements are based upon current management expectations and may, therefore, involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results, performance, or achievements may differ materially from those suggested, expressed, or implied by forward-looking statements as a result of a wide variety or range of factors including, but not limited to: the credit risks of lending activities, including changes in the level and trend of loan delinquencies and write-offs that may be impacted by deterioration in the housing and commercial real estate markets and may lead to increased losses and non-performing assets in our loan portfolio, and may result in our allowance for loan losses not being adequate to cover actual losses, and require us to materially increase our reserves; changes in general economic conditions, either nationally or in our market areas; changes in the levels of general interest rates, and the relative differences between short and long term interest rates, deposit interest rates, our net interest margin and funding sources; fluctuations in the demand for loans, the number of unsold homes and other properties and fluctuations in real estate values in our market areas; results of examinations of us by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and our bank subsidiary by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"), the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions, Division of Banks ("Washington DFI") or other regulatory authorities, including the possibility that any such regulatory authority may, among other things, institute additional enforcement actions against the Company or the Bank, to take additional corrective action and refrain from unsafe and unsound practices, which may also require us to increase our reserve for loan losses, write-down assets, change our regulatory capital position or affect our ability to borrow funds or maintain or increase deposits, which could adversely affect our liquidity and earnings; our compliance with regulatory enforcement actions including; the requirements and restrictions that have been imposed under the Supervisory Directive the Bank entered into with the FDIC and the Washington DFI and the possibility that noncompliance by the Bank could result in the imposition of additional requirements or restrictions; our ability to attract and retain deposits; increases in premiums for deposit insurance; our ability to control operating costs and expenses; the use of estimates in determining fair value of certain of our assets, which estimates may prove to be incorrect and result in significant declines in valuation; difficulties in reducing risk associated with the loans on our balance sheet; staffing fluctuations in response to product demand or the implementation of corporate strategies that affect our work force and potential associated charges; computer systems on which we depend could fail or experience a security breach; our ability to retain key members of our senior management team; costs and effects of litigation, including settlements and judgments; our ability to manage loan delinquency rates; increased competitive pressures among financial services companies; changes in consumer spending, borrowing and savings habits; legislative or regulatory changes that adversely affect our business including changes in regulatory policies and principles, or the interpretations of regulatory capital or the other rules, including changes related to the Basel III requirements, the impact of the effect of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the implementing regulations, including the interpretation of regulatory capital or other rules; the availability of resources to address changes in laws, rules, or regulations or to respond to regulatory actions; adverse changes in the securities markets; inability of key third-party providers to perform their obligations to us; changes in accounting policies and practices, as may be adopted by the financial institution regulatory agencies or the Financial Accounting Standards Board, including additional guidance and interpretation on accounting issues and details of the implementation of new accounting methods; the economic impact of war or any terrorist activities; other economic, competitive, governmental, regulatory, and technological factors affecting our operations, pricing, products and services; and other risks detailed in our Form 10-K and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Any of the forward-looking statements that we make in this Press Release and in the other public statements we make may turn out to be wrong because of the inaccurate assumptions we might make, because of the factors illustrated above or because of other factors that we cannot foresee. Because of these and other uncertainties, our actual future results may be materially different from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements made by or on our behalf and the Company's operating and stock price performance may be negatively affected. Therefore, these factors should be considered in evaluating the forward-looking statements, and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. We undertake no responsibility to update or revise any forward-looking statements.
