HMN Financial, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: HMNF

President’s Statement“We are pleased to report the continued improvement in our net operating results and the decrease in our non-performing assets in the second quarter of 2013,” said Bradley Krehbiel, President and Chief Executive Officer of HMN. “We continue to focus our efforts on improving credit quality and reducing non-performing assets in the most cost effective manner while at the same time reducing expenses to reflect the decreased size of our balance sheet. We believe that, over time, our focus on these areas will be effective in generating improved financial results.”

Second Quarter Results Net Interest IncomeNet interest income was $4.7 million for the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of $1.3 million, or 22.7%, compared to $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2012. Interest income was $5.8 million for the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 27.2%, from $8.0 million for the same period in 2012. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of an $82 million decrease in the average interest-earning assets and also because of a decrease in average yields between the periods. Average interest-earning assets decreased between the periods primarily because of a decrease in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred primarily because of loan prepayments or non-renewals as a result of the Company’s focus on improving credit quality, decreasing loan concentrations, managing net interest margin and improving capital ratios. The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 4.07% for the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of 83 basis points from the 4.90% average yield for the second quarter of 2012. The decrease in average yield is due to the continued low short-term interest rate environment that existed during the second quarter of 2013. The increase in domestic long-term mortgage rates during the second quarter of 2013 did not materially impact the average yield earned on interest-earning assets during the second quarter of 2013 since most of the mortgage loans originated by the Bank are sold into the secondary market and not placed in the loan portfolio.

Interest expense was $1.1 million for the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 41.5%, compared to $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2012. Interest expense decreased primarily because of the $90 million decrease in the average interest-bearing liabilities between the periods. The decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities is primarily the result of a decrease in the outstanding borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits between the periods. The decrease in borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits between the periods was the result of using the proceeds from loan principal payments to fund maturing borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits. Interest expense also decreased because of the lower interest rates paid on money market accounts and certificates of deposits. The decreased rates were the result of the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the second quarter of 2013. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 0.85% for the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of 39 basis points from the 1.24% average interest rate paid in the second quarter of 2012. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities is anticipated to continue to decrease in the third quarter of 2013 as a result of paying off all outstanding Federal Home Loan Bank advances in the second quarter of 2013. Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) for the second quarter of 2013 was 3.28%, a decrease of 44 basis points, compared to 3.72% for the second quarter of 2012.
