Beneficial Mutual Bancorp, Inc. Announces Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2011 Results

Beneficial Mutual Bancorp, Inc. (“Beneficial”) (NASDAQGS: BNCL), the parent company of Beneficial Bank (the “Bank” or the “Company”), today announced its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.

Beneficial recorded net income of $5.9 million, or $0.08 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, compared to a net loss of $356 thousand, or $0.00 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2011 totaled $11.0 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to a net loss of $9.0 million, or $(0.12) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2010. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2011 included $5.1 million of restructuring charges related to the implementation of our expense management reduction program during the first quarter of 2011. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2010 was driven by a provision for loan losses of $70.2 million due to specific reserves required for commercial real estate loans.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2011, Beneficial continued to benefit from the impact of the expense management reduction program that was implemented in the first quarter of 2011, as total non-interest expense decreased $3.9 million to $29.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 compared to $33.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010. For the year ended, December 31, 2011, non-interest expense decreased $7.7 million to $120.7 million compared to $128.4 million for 2010. The year ended December 31, 2011 included a $5.1 million restructuring charges related to our expense reduction program implemented during the first quarter.

Credit costs have decreased from the prior year but continue to have a significant impact on our financial results. During the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, the Bank recorded a provision for credit losses in the amount of $8.5 million and $37.5 million, respectively, compared to $8.0 million and $70.2 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010, respectively. Although we have seen some improvement in our credit quality with non-performing assets decreasing $9.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2011 to $154.1 million, as compared to $163.5 million at September 30, 2011, we continue to experience high charge-off levels. During the year we continued to build our reserves and, at December 31, 2011, the Company’s allowance for loan losses totaled $54.2 million, or 2.10% of total loans, compared to $45.4 million, or 1.62% of total loans, at December 31, 2010. We expect that the provision for credit losses will remain elevated in 2012 as we continue to focus on reducing our non-performing asset levels.

During the year ended December 31, 2011, deposits decreased $347.5 million primarily due to the planned run-off of higher cost, non-relationship-based municipal deposits. For the year, planned municipal deposit run-off was $393.5 million which has helped stabilize net interest margin and improve our capital position. Loans decreased $111.3 million and $220.3 million, respectively, during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011. Approximately 31.4% of the decrease during the year ended December 31, 2011 is related to our residential loan portfolio. In 2011, we established a new mortgage banking team and began to sell all agency eligible mortgage loans originated to better position the balance sheet for interest rate risk. During the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, we recorded non-interest income of approximately $1.1 million and $1.2 million, respectively, related to these loan sales.

Gerard Cuddy, Beneficial’s President and CEO, stated, “During the fourth quarter of 2011, we continued to see improved profitability and capital levels as a result of the initiatives we have put in place during the year. We are encouraged by the decrease in our non-performing assets during the quarter and are focused on reducing our non-performing asset levels in 2012. During the quarter we announced our acquisition of St. Edmond’s Federal Savings Bank. This acquisition will increase our customer base and market share in our footprint and demonstrates Beneficial’s commitment to growth in the Philadelphia market. We expect the transaction to close sometime in the second quarter of 2012.”

Highlights for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011:
  • During the quarter, we signed a definitive merger agreement to acquire St. Edmond’s Federal Savings Bank, which had total assets of approximately $303 million and maintains five banking locations in the greater Philadelphia area. This merger will enhance our presence in southeastern Pennsylvania and increase our banking locations and market share within our region.
  • Capital levels improved and remain strong with tangible capital to tangible assets increasing to 11.3% at December 31, 2011 compared to 10.2% at December 31, 2010.
  • Non-performing loans, excluding student loans, decreased $11.0 million, or 9.3%, during the quarter to $107.9 million compared to $118.9 million at September 30, 2011. Non-performing assets decreased $9.4 million, or 5.7%, during the quarter to $154.1 million compared to $163.5 million at September 30, 2011.
  • At December 31, 2011, the Company’s allowance for loan losses totaled $54.2 million, or 2.10% of total loans, compared to $45.4 million, or 1.62% of total loans, at December 31, 2010.
  • Recorded non-interest income related to the sale of mortgage loans of $1.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 primarily driven by the newly established mortgage banking team.
  • Operating expenses decreased $3.9 million and $7.7 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2010 as a result of the expense management reduction program implemented during the first quarter of 2011.

Balance Sheet

Total assets decreased $333.7 million, or 6.8%, to $4.6 billion at December 31, 2011 compared to $4.9 billion at December 31, 2010. During the year, we took advantage of low interest rates to increase profitability, improve the Bank’s capital position, and reduce the Bank’s interest rate risk profile by selling investments and reducing higher cost, non-relationship-based municipal deposits. At December 31, 2011, we had higher than usual cash balances as we were holding cash to cover additional planned municipal deposit run-off that is expected to occur during 2012. As a result, cash and cash equivalents increased from $90.3 million at December 31, 2010 to $348.0 million at December 31, 2011. The balance of investments at December 31, 2011 decreased $275.2 million, or 16.7%, to $1.4 billion from $1.7 billion at December 31, 2010, as we sold longer term investments during 2011 to shorten the duration of the investment portfolio and better position Beneficial for rising interest rates.

Total loans decreased $220.3 million, or 7.9%, to $2.6 billion at December 31, 2011 from $2.8 billion at December 31, 2010. Approximately $69.2 million of the decrease relates to our residential loan portfolio and our decision to sell all agency eligible mortgage loans originated to better position the balance sheet for interest rate risk. During the year ended December 31, 2011, we sold $56.3 million of residential mortgage loans originated during the year and recorded non-interest income of $1.2 million related to these loan sales. The remainder of the decrease relates to a number of large commercial real estate pay-offs that occurred during the year as well as lower consumer loan balances due to continued weak demand.

Total deposits decreased by $347.5 million, or 8.8%, to $3.6 billion at December 31, 2011, from $3.9 billion at December 31, 2010, primarily due to the planned run-off of $393.5 million in municipal deposit accounts.

At December 31, 2011, stockholders’ equity increased to $629.4 million, or 13.7% of total assets, compared to $615.5 million, or 12.5% of total assets, at December 31, 2010.

Net Interest Income

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, Beneficial reported net interest income of $34.8 million, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 6.1%, from the quarter ended December 31, 2010. The decrease in net interest income was primarily due to a 5.7% decrease in interest earning assets due to our previously discussed decision to shrink the balance sheet and run-off higher cost municipal deposits to strengthen capital, improve our net interest margin and lower loan balances. Net interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was also impacted by high levels of cash we were holding at December 31, 2011 to cover municipal deposit run-off. Despite the low interest rate environment, our net interest margin remained relatively stable, totaling 3.23% for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 as compared to 3.24% for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, largely due our efforts to re-price deposits.

We have been able to lower the cost of our liabilities to 0.95% for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 compared to 1.14% for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, by reducing borrowings and re-pricing higher cost deposits. The reduction in deposit costs has been primarily due to decreasing rates on our municipal deposit portfolio as we run-off higher cost, non-relationship-based municipal deposits. In addition, rates have dropped in all other deposit categories consistent with the interest rate environment.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, net interest income decreased $5.5 million, or 3.7%, to $142.1 million from $147.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. The net interest margin decreased 10 basis points to 3.22% for the year ended December 31, 2011, from 3.32% for the year ended December 31, 2010. The decrease in net interest income was driven by excess levels of cash and by low interest rates which have reduced the yields on our investment portfolio as excess liquidity is invested at lower yields. Mortgage re-financings have also resulted in lower yields on our mortgage portfolio. We have been able to reduce the cost of our interest bearing liabilities over this time period with average rates decreasing to 1.01% for the year ended December 31, 2011 from 1.31% for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Non-interest Income

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, non-interest income totaled $7.1 million, an increase of $161 thousand, or 2.3%, from the quarter ended December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily due to $1.1 million of income recognized during the fourth quarter of 2011 in connection with the sale of mortgages, partially offset by decreases in insurance and advisory income and income related to the cash surrender value of our life insurance contracts.

Non-interest income decreased $2.0 million to $25.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010. The decrease in non-interest income was primarily due to a $1.7 million decrease in gain on the sale of securities and a $938 thousand decrease in insurance and advisory income, partially offset by $1.4 million of income recognized during 2011 in connection with the sale of loans as part our Small Business Administration lending and mortgage banking programs.

Non-interest Expense

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, non-interest expense totaled $29.2 million, a decrease of $3.9 million, or 11.8%, from the quarter ended December 31, 2010. The decrease in non-interest expense was primarily due to a $1.4 million decrease in salaries and benefits and $1.3 million in operating expense reductions as a result of the cost savings initiatives implemented in the first quarter of 2011, as well as a $523 thousand decrease in FDIC insurance expense. These decreases in non-interest expense were partially offset by a $1.2 million legal settlement, an $894 thousand increase in loan expenses and a $475 thousand increase in professional fees related to the St. Edmonds Federal Savings Bank acquisition.

Non-interest expense decreased $7.7 million, or 6.0%, to $120.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010, primarily due to a $5.2 million decrease in salaries and benefits, a $2.7 million decrease in marketing expense and $3.6 million in other operating expense reductions as a result of the cost savings initiatives implemented during the first quarter of 2011. These decreases were partially offset by a $5.1 million restructuring charge recorded during the year, a $978 thousand increase in loan expenses and $632 thousand increase in real estate owned expenses.

Income taxes

For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, we recorded a benefit for income taxes of $1.7 million and $1.9 million, respectively, reflecting an effective rate of 39.9% and 21.0%, compared to a provision for income taxes of $3.3 million and a benefit for income taxes of $14.8 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010. The tax rates differ from the statutory rate of 35% principally because of tax-exempt investments, non-taxable income related to bank-owned life insurance and tax credits received on affordable housing partnerships. These tax credits relate to investments maintained by the Company as a limited partner in partnerships that sponsor affordable housing projects utilizing low-income housing credits pursuant to Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code. Results for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 also include the reversal of a charitable contribution valuation allowance recorded in prior periods that is now realizable based on current earnings levels.

Asset Quality

Non-performing loans, including loans 90 days past due and still accruing, decreased to $136.3 million at December 31, 2011, compared to $144.4 million at September 30, 2011. Non-performing loans at December 31, 2011 included $28.4 million of government guaranteed student loans, which represented 20.8% of total non-performing loans. Net charge-offs during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011 were $8.4 million and $28.7 million, respectively, compared to $7.6 million and $70.7 million during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010, respectively. At December 31, 2011, the Company’s allowance for loan losses totaled $54.2 million, or 2.10% of total loans, compared to $45.4 million, or 1.62% of total loans, at December 31, 2010.

Capital

Our capital ratios improved compared to the prior quarter as a result of our continued efforts to shrink the Company’s balance sheet. The Company’s capital position remains strong relative to current regulatory requirements. The Company continues to have substantial liquidity as the inflows of deposits have largely been retained in cash or invested in high quality government-backed securities. In addition, the Company continues to have significant available borrowing capacity from its contingent funding sources with over $1.1 billion in available liquidity. Our capital ratios as of December 31, 2011 compared to September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, as well as our excess capital over regulatory minimums as of December 31, 2011 to be considered well capitalized, are as follows:
