Under regulatory requirements, a bank must have a tier 1 leverage ratio of 4.0 percent or greater and a total risk-based capital ratio of 8.0 percent or greater to be considered adequately capitalized. "We are encouraged by our eighth consecutive quarter of capital ratios above the threshold to be considered adequately capitalized," stated Chris Bauer, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation and the Bank. "Net income at the Bank of nearly one million in the quarter is also a promising development. We have not reported positive quarterly net earnings at the Bank level since September 2010," Bauer added.While the Bank reported positive net quarterly earnings, the Corporation, as the holding company of the Bank, continues to be burdened with significant senior debt and preferred stock obligations:
- The Corporation currently owes $116.3 million to various lenders led by U.S. Bank under its credit agreement that matures November 30, 2012. In addition, accrued but unpaid interest and fees totaling $45.8 million associated with this obligation are also due and payable at maturity.
- The Corporation issued $110 million in preferred stock in January 2009 to the United States Treasury pursuant to the Treasury's Capital Purchase Program ("CPP"). As permitted under the CPP program, the Corporation has deferred thirteen quarterly preferred stock dividend payments to the Treasury totaling $20.4 million, including interest.
- While the Bank has substantial liquidity, it is currently precluded by its regulators from paying dividends to the Corporation for purposes of repayment of the foregoing obligations.
- Net interest margin fell to 2.57 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2012, from 2.77 percent for the same period in the previous year. Interest income decreased $9.1 million or 25.3 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to a decline in average balances in the loan and investment security portfolios. Interest expense decreased $4.0 million or 27.4 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in the prior year due to a reduction in certificate of deposit average balances and the rate paid on these accounts.
- The provision for credit losses improved $5.2 million to a recapture of $(1.7) million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $3.5 million of provision expense in the same period in the previous year. The change was largely due to a lower required general allowance for losses on non-impaired loans resulting from an improvement in the credit metrics which are used in part to establish this reserve.
- Non-interest income totaled $13.5 million, up $4.3 million or 47.2 percent, compared to the same period in the previous year. The increase was primarily due to $5.8 million of gains on sale of mortgage loans in the three months ending June 30, 2012, up $4.7 million over the prior year quarter, reflecting better execution in the sale of these instruments into the secondary market. Gains on sale of REO also contributed to this favorable variance as total net gains of $3.2 million in the current quarter were $1.9 million higher than reported in the year ago quarter.
- Total non-interest expense decreased by $0.4 million or 1.2 percent, compared to the same period a year ago largely due to a decrease of $1.9 million in OREO expense arising from lower loss provisions on repossessed property reflecting stabilizing real estate values. This favorable variance was partially offset by a $1.0 million increase in mortgage servicing rights impairment as market interest rates declined considerably during the current year quarter.

Bauer added, "Although we are pleased to see these favorable credit trends, considerable effort remains to be expended resolving troubled loans and the disposition of foreclosed properties. We continue to work aggressively to resolve the issues within the credit portfolios. The positive trends emerging on the credit front are partially offset by the negative impact of costs associated with carrying an elevated level of foreclosed properties on the Bank's balance sheet." Other real estate owned totaled $84.0 million at June 30, 2012, down from $88.8 million at March 31, 2012 and $89.5 million at June 30, 2011.Mortgage Banking

Commenting on residential mortgage activity, Bauer added, "The residential mortgage business continues to be a focus as customer demand, sparked by lower mortgage rates, has resulted in significantly higher revenues. It has also afforded us opportunities to increase product penetration rates for existing customers and to offer other products and services to customers new to the Bank."About Anchor BanCorp Wisconsin Inc.
