ROCHESTER, Minn., Jan. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HMN Financial, Inc. (HMN or the Company) (NASDAQ:HMNF), the $643 million holding company for Home Federal Savings Bank (the Bank), today reported net income of $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, a decrease of $0.6 million compared to net income of $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.  Net income available to common shareholders was $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, a decrease of $0.3 million from the net income available to common shareholders of $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.  Diluted earnings per common share for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $0.23, a decrease of $0.07 from the diluted earnings per common share of $0.30 for the fourth quarter of 2014.  The decrease in net income in the fourth quarter of 2015 is due primarily to a $2.3 million increase in the provision for loan losses between the periods.  The provision for loan losses increased primarily because there was more commercial loan growth and fewer recoveries of previously charged off loans in the fourth quarter of 2015 when compared to the same period of 2014. This decrease in net income was partially offset by a $0.9 million increase in net interest income due to an increase in the outstanding loan balances and a $0.7 million decrease in income tax expense as a result of the decreased income between the periods.  

President's Statement

"We are pleased to report the positive loan growth and the continued improvement in our net interest income in the fourth quarter of 2015," said Brad Krehbiel, President of HMN. "We are also encouraged by the results of our ongoing efforts to improve the credit quality in our commercial loan portfolio, which resulted in our non-performing assets declining to less than 1% of total assets during the fourth quarter of 2015.  We intend to continue to focus our efforts on loan growth and further improving the credit quality of our existing loan portfolio, which should continue to improve the financial performance of our core banking operations."

Fourth Quarter Results

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $5.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of $0.9 million, or 20.1%, compared to $4.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.  Interest income was $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of $1.1 million, or 21.3%, from $5.0 million for the same period in 2014. Interest income increased between the periods primarily because of an increase in the outstanding average interest-earning assets and a change in the mix of average interest-earning assets held, which resulted in an increase in the average yields earned between the periods.  While the average interest-earning assets increased $43.4 million between the periods, the average interest-earning assets held in higher yielding loans increased $87.5 million and the amount of average interest-earning assets held in lower yielding cash and investments decreased $44.1 million between the periods.  The increase in the average outstanding loans between the periods was primarily the result of an increase in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred primarily because of an increase in loan originations and a reduction in loan payoffs between the periods.  The Company also acquired $24.1 million of loans through an acquisition that occurred in the third quarter of 2015.  The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 4.06% for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of 45 basis points from 3.61% for the fourth quarter of 2014.   

Interest expense was $0.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of $0.1 million, or 43.4%, compared to $0.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.  Interest expense increased primarily because of the change in the mix of the average interest-bearing liabilities held, which resulted in an increase in the average rate paid between the periods.  While the average interest-bearing liabilities increased $55.6 million between the periods, the amount held in lower rate deposits increased $44.7 million and the amount held in higher rate advances and other borrowings increased $10.9 million between the periods. The increase in average outstanding deposits between the periods was primarily the result of the $47.3 million in deposits acquired through an acquisition that occurred in the third quarter of 2015.  The increase in the average rate paid was primarily due to the $10.0 million holding company note payable that was funded in the first quarter of 2015 in connection with the redemption of all of the remaining Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A (the "Preferred Stock").  Interest expense increases related to borrowing costs were partially offset by the lower interest rates paid on deposit accounts between the periods as a result of the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the fourth quarter of 2015.  The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 0.28% for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of 6 basis points from the 0.22% average interest rate paid in the fourth quarter of 2014.  Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest-earning assets) for the fourth quarter of 2015 was 3.80%, an increase of 38 basis points, compared to 3.42% for the fourth quarter of 2014. 

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses was $0.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of $2.3 million, compared to ($2.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2014.  The provision for loan losses increased primarily because there was more commercial loan growth and fewer recoveries of previously charged off loans in the fourth quarter of 2015 when compared to the same period of 2014.  Total non-performing assets were $6.2 million at December 31, 2015, a decrease of $5.4 million, or 46.3%, from $11.6 million at September 30, 2015.  Non-performing loans decreased $4.9 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $0.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2015.  The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for the fourth quarter of 2015 was as follows:

December 31, 2015 $ 4,181     December 31, 2015 $ 2,045  
         
         

The decrease in non-performing loans relates primarily to a commercial real estate development relationship that was upgraded to performing status during the quarter due to the improved financial performance of the project as a result of increased lot sales.           A reconciliation of the allowance for loan losses for the fourth quarters of 2015 and 2014 is summarized as follows:

Non-Interest Income and Expense

Non-interest income was $2.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of $0.3 million, or 16.7%, from $1.7 million for the same period in 2014.  Gain on sales of loans increased $0.2 million between the periods primarily because of an increase in single family loan originations and sales.  Other income increased $0.1 million primarily due to an increase in the sale of uninsured investment products. 

Non-interest expense was $6.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of $0.2 million, or 3.1%, from $5.8 million for the same period of 2014.  Losses on real estate owned increased $0.2 million as a result of an increase in the losses realized on the sale of real estate owned between the periods. Compensation expense increased $0.1 million between the periods primarily because of an increase in employee pension benefit costs.  These increases in non-interest expense were partially offset by a decrease of $0.1 in occupancy expense due primarily to a decrease in building and non-capitalized software costs between the periods.   

Income tax expense was $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, a decrease of $0.7 million, compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 2014.  The decrease in income tax expense between the periods is primarily related to the decrease in pre-tax net income in the fourth quarter of 2015 when compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.               Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

Net income available to common shareholders was $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, a decrease of $0.3 million from the $1.4 million net income available to common shareholders in the fourth quarter of 2014.  The net income available to common shareholders decreased primarily because of the decrease in net income between the periods that was partially offset by a reduction in the dividends required to be paid on the outstanding Preferred Stock.  On February 17, 2015 the Company redeemed the final 10,000 shares of its outstanding Preferred Stock and, as a result, no dividends are required to be paid on the Preferred Stock after that date. 

Return on Assets and Equity

Return on average assets (annualized) for the fourth quarter of 2015 was 0.69%, compared to 1.13% for the fourth quarter of 2014.  Return on average equity (annualized) was 6.19% for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 8.74% for the same period of 2014.  Book value per common share at December 31, 2015 was $15.54, compared to $14.77 at December 31, 2014.

Annual Results

Net Income

Net income was $3.0 million for 2015, a decrease of $4.4 million, from $7.4 million for 2014.  Net income available to common shareholders was $2.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2015, a decrease of $2.9 million, from net income available to common shareholders of $5.7 million for 2014.  Diluted earnings per common share for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $0.61, a decrease of $0.62 compared to the diluted earnings per common share of $1.23 for the year ended December 31, 2014.  The decrease in net income in 2015 is due primarily to a $6.8 million increase in the provision for loan losses between the periods.  The increase in the provision was primarily because there was more commercial loan growth and fewer recoveries of previously charged off loans in 2015 when compared to 2014.  Net income also decreased $1.4 million due to the increase in the losses on real estate owned between the periods.  The increased losses in 2015 were primarily due to a large gain realized on the sale of a commercial property in 2014.  These decreases in net income were partially offset by a $0.5 million increase in net interest income due to increases in outstanding loan balances and a $3.3 million decrease in income tax expense as a result of the decreased income between the periods.   Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $19.9 million for 2015, an increase of $0.5 million, or 2.8%, from $19.4 million for 2014.  Interest income was $21.5 million for 2015, an increase of $0.9 million, or 4.1%, from $20.6 million for 2014.  Interest income increased between the periods primarily because of a change in the mix of average interest-earning assets held, which resulted in an increase in the average yields earned between the periods. While the average interest-earning assets decreased $14.5 million between the periods, the average interest-earning assets held in higher yielding loans increased $25.5 million and the amount held in lower yielding cash and investment decreased $40.0 million between the periods.  The increase in the average outstanding loans between the periods was primarily the result of an increase in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred primarily because of an increase in loan originations and a reduction in loan payoffs between the periods. The Company also acquired $24.1 million of loans through an acquisition that occurred in the third quarter of 2015.  The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 3.83% for 2015, an increase of 24 basis points from 3.59% for 2014.   

Interest expense was $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2015, an increase of $0.3 million, or 24.4%, from $1.2 million for 2014.  Interest expense increased primarily because of the change in the mix of the average interest-bearing liabilities held, which resulted in an increase in the average rate paid between the periods.  While the average interest-bearing liabilities decreased $2.8 million between the periods, the average amount held in higher rate advances and other borrowings increased $9.3 million, the average amount held in higher rate certificates of deposit decreased $14.5 million, and the average  amount held in other lower rate checking and money market deposits increased $2.4 million between the periods.  The increase in the average rates paid was primarily due to the $10.0 million holding company note payable that was funded in the first quarter of 2015 in connection with the redemption of all of the remaining Preferred Stock. Interest expense increases related to borrowing costs were partially offset by the lower interest rates paid on deposit accounts between the periods as a result of the low interest rate environment that continued to exist in 2015. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 0.29% for 2015, an increase of 6 basis points from the 0.23% average interest rate paid in 2014.  Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest-earning assets) for 2015 was 3.56%, an increase of 18 basis points, compared to 3.38% for 2014.  

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses was ($0.2 million) for the year ended December 31, 2015, an increase of $6.8 million, from ($7.0 million) for the year ended December 31, 2014. The provision for loan losses increased primarily because there was more commercial loan growth, fewer credit rating upgrades, and fewer recoveries of previously charged off loans in 2015 when compared to 2014. Total non-performing assets were $6.2 million at December 31, 2015, a decrease of $7.8 million, or 55.6%, from $14.0 million at December 31, 2014.  Non-performing loans decreased $6.7 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $1.1 million during 2015.  The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for 2015 was as follows:

Non-Interest Income and Expense

Non-interest income was $7.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2015, an increase of $0.4 million, compared to $7.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2014. The increase is primarily related to a gain of $0.3 million that was recognized on an acquisition that occurred in the third quarter of 2015.  Gain on sales of loans increased $0.1 million, or 7.4%, between the periods primarily because of an increase in single family loan originations and sales.  Other non-interest income increased $0.1 million primarily due to an increase in income related to the sale of non-insured investment products. These increases in non-interest income were partially offset by a $0.1 million decrease in fees and service charges primarily because of a decrease in retail and commercial overdraft fees between the periods. 

Non-interest expense was $23.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2015, an increase of $1.8 million, or 8.4%, from $21.4 million for the same period in 2014. Losses on real estate owned increased $1.4 million between the periods primarily because of a $1.0 million gain that was recognized on the sale of a single commercial property in 2014.  Compensation expense increased $0.4 million between the periods primarily because of an increase in the expenses related to restricted stock awards and increased incentive accruals due to increased loan originations. These increases in non-interest expense were partially offset by a decrease of $0.1 million in deposit insurance costs due primarily to a decrease in insurance rates between the periods.     

Income tax expense was $1.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2015, a decrease of $3.3 million from $4.9 million for the same period in 2014. The decrease in income tax expense between the periods is primarily related to the decrease in pre-tax net income in 2015 when compared to 2014.             Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

Net income available to common shareholders was $2.8 million for 2015, a decrease of $2.9 million from the $5.7 million net income available to common shareholders in 2014. The net income available to common shareholders decreased primarily because of the decrease in net income between the periods that was partially offset by a reduction in the dividends required to be paid on the outstanding Preferred Stock.  On February 17, 2015 the Company redeemed the final 10,000 shares of its outstanding Preferred Stock and, as a result, no dividends are required to be paid on the Preferred Stock after that date. 

Return on Assets and Equity

Return on average assets (annualized) for 2015 was 0.50%, compared to 1.21% for 2014.  Return on average equity (annualized) was 4.27% for 2015, compared to 9.12% for the same period of 2014.  Book value per common share at December 31, 2015 was $15.54, compared to $14.77 at December 31, 2014.
