LACEY, Wash., July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anchor Bancorp (NASDAQ:ANCB) ("Company"), the holding company for Anchor Bank ("Bank"), today reported net income of $335,000 or $0.14 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year ended June 30, 2016 compared to net income of $624,000 or $0.25 per diluted share for the same period last year.  For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016 the Company reported net income of $495,000 or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net income of $9.8 million or $3.97 per diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, which included an $8.3 million tax benefit related to the reversal of the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets ("DTA").

"I am pleased with our continued loan growth, which exceeded our growth goals for the quarter and the year.  Our loan growth was achieved through internal loan originations augmented by loan purchases, and is well diversified in both loan types as well as geographic locations in Washington State as we expanded our lending in King and Pierce Counties, Washington.  Although our noninterest expenses were elevated for the quarter and the year, the increase was primarily related to equity awards under the plan approved during our annual shareholder meeting in October 2015.  Our stock-based expenses decreased throughout the year and will continue to decrease in the upcoming year.  I am pleased to note that we maintained our net interest margin at 4.12% for the year despite the continuing low interest rate environment as we increased higher yielding non-residential loans and noninterest bearing deposits as well as reduced the cost of our borrowings," stated Jerald L. Shaw, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Credit Quality

Total delinquent loans (past due 30 days or more), decreased $333,000, or 9.2%, to $3.3 million at June 30, 2016 from $3.6 million at June 30, 2015. The percentage of nonperforming loans, consisting solely of nonaccrual loans, to total loans decreased to 0.6% at June 30, 2016 from 0.7% at June 30, 2015.  The Company recorded a $175,000 provision for loan losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to no provision for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 as a result of increases in our loan portfolio.  The allowance for loan losses of $3.8 million at June 30, 2016 represented 1.1% of loans receivable and 191.6% of nonperforming loans. This compares to an allowance for loan losses of $3.7 million at June 30, 2015, representing 1.3% of loans receivable and 185.0% of nonperforming loans.

Nonperforming loans decreased by $633,000 to $2.0 million at June 30, 2016 from $2.6 million at March 31, 2016 and $2.0 million at June 30, 2015.  Nonperforming loans consisted of the following at the dates indicated:

We restructure our delinquent loans, when appropriate, so our borrowers can continue to make payments while minimizing the Company's potential loss.  As of June 30, 2016, March 31, 2016 and June 30, 2015 there were 37, 38 and 39 loans, respectively, with aggregate net principal balances of $8.8 million, $9.0 million and $9.8 million, respectively, classified as "troubled debt restructurings," of which, $884,000, $980,000 and $902,000, respectively, were included in the nonperforming loans above.

As of June 30, 2016, the Company had six real estate owned ("REO") properties with an aggregate book value of $373,000, compared to six REO properties last quarter, with an aggregate book value of $468,000 at March 31, 2016 and had eight REO properties with an aggregate book value of $797,000 at June 30, 2015.  The decrease in number of properties during the year ended June 30, 2016 was primarily attributable to ongoing sales of residential properties and the sale of three lots with a net book value of $878,000.  During the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company sold one residential real estate property for $172,500 with a gain on sale of $1,000 and one residential real estate property became an REO with a net book value of $124,000.  During the quarter ended June 30, 2016 the Company had one REO impairment of $31,000 for a residential real estate property. At June 30, 2016, the largest of the REO properties was a residential real estate property with an aggregate book value of $124,000 located in Grays Harbor County, Washington.

Capital

As of June 30, 2016, the Bank exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with Tier 1 Leverage-Based Capital, Common Equity Tier 1 Capital (CET1), Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios of 13.5%, 14.7%, 14.7% and 15.7%, respectively.  As of June 30, 2015, these ratios were 14.3%, 16.2%, 16.2%, and 17.4%, respectively.

Anchor Bancorp exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with Tier 1 Leverage-Based Capital, CET1, Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios of 14.4%, 15.7%, 15.7%, and 16.6% as of June 30, 2016.  As of June 30, 2015, these ratios were 16.6%, 19.0%, 19.0%, and 20.1%, respectively.

Balance Sheet Review

Total assets increased by $52.3 million, or 13.8%, to $431.5 million at June 30, 2016 from $379.2 million at June 30, 2015. Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") stock increased $2.1 million, or 246.9%, to $3.0 million as required to support our increase in FHLB advances which primarily funded our loan growth.  Cash and cash equivalents decreased $6.1 million, or 42.4%, to $8.3 million at June 30, 2016 from $14.5 million at June 30, 2015. Securities available-for-sale and held-to-maturity decreased during the year by $5.9 million, or 20.0%, and $1.3 million, or 17.4%, respectively. The decreases in these portfolios were primarily the result of contractual principal repayments.

Loans receivable, net, increased $63.9 million, or 22.5%, to $347.4 million at June 30, 2016 from $283.4 million at June 30, 2015 as a result $141.4 million of new loan production and the purchase of $22.8 million of loans.  For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, loans receivable, net increased $20.8 million, or 6.4%, primarily due to increases in commercial real estate, construction and commercial business loans.  During the year ended June 30, 2016, commercial real estate loans increased $21.2 million, or 16.5%, to $149.5 million at June 30, 2016 from $128.3 million at June 30, 2015.  Commercial business loans increased $17.9 million, or 94.1%, to $36.9 million at June 30, 2016 from $19.0 million at June 30, 2015. The increase was primarily due to two commercial lines of credit. The first is secured by assignments of promissory notes by the underlying deeds of trust located in Washington, Oregon and Utah.  The second are also promissory notes of deed of trust on construction loans located in King County.  Multi-family loans increased $10.5 million, or 24.3%, to $53.7 million at June 30, 2016 from $43.2 million at June 30, 2015, primarily due to the purchase of $22.8 million in multi-family loans, partially offset by the reclassification of $14.4 million of multi-family loans to one-to-four family loans.  The loan purchase consisted of 12 multi-family projects in King and Pierce Counties.  All properties met our underwriting standards and each property was independently visited and re-underwritten. Construction loans increased $10.1 million, or 85.8%, to $21.8 million at June 30, 2016 from $11.7 million at June 30, 2015. One-to-four family loans increased $3.3 million or 5.7%, to $61.2 million at June 30, 2016 from $57.9 million at June 30, 2015, due primarily to the reclassification discussed above. Land loans increased $2.8 million, or 68.1%, to $6.8 million at June 30, 2016 from $4.1 million at June 30, 2015.  Consumer loans decreased $1.8 million, or 7.6%, to $22.1 million at June 30, 2016 from $23.9 million at June 30, 2015.

Total liabilities increased $52.8 million between June 30, 2016 and June 30, 2015, primarily as the result of a $52.0 million increase in FHLB advances utilized to fund loan growth and a $1.1 million increase in deposits.

Total stockholders' equity decreased $527,000, or 0.8%, to $63.2 million at June 30, 2016 from $63.7 million at June 30, 2015 primarily due to stock repurchases of $3.0 million. During the year we repurchased 127,500 shares of common stock at an average price of $23.17 per share.  This decrease was partially offset by $1.6 million of stock-based compensation under the Anchor Bancorp 2015 Equity Incentive Plan approved by shareholders on October 21, 2015 (the "Plan") and net income of $495,000.  Accumulated other comprehensive loss decreased $162,000 to $549,000 as a result of unrealized valuation changes on investments available-for-sale.

Operating Results

Net interest income. Net interest income before the provision for loan losses increased $454,000, or 13.0%, to $3.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from $3.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  For the year ended June 30, 2016, net interest income before the provision for loan losses increased $884,000, or 6.4%, to $14.7 million from $13.8 million for fiscal 2015.  For both periods the increase was due primarily to an increase in average loans receivable.  Average loans receivable, net, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 increased $59.2 million, or 20.8%, to $343.5 million from $284.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  For the year ended June 30, 2016, average loans receivable, net, increased $27.9 million, or 9.9%, to $310.7 million from $282.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2015.

The Company's net interest margin remained the same at 4.14% for both fourth quarters ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.  The yield on mortgage-backed securities decreased slightly to 2.03% from 2.06% for the same period in the prior year. The average yield on interest-earning assets decreased seven basis points to 4.91% from 4.98% for the quarters ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.  The average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased nine basis points to 0.97% for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to 1.06% for the same period in the prior year.  For the year ended June 30, 2016, the Company's net interest margin increased seven basis points to 4.12% compared to 4.05% for the year ended June 30, 2015.  The improvement in our net interest margin compared to the same period last year reflects a significant reduction in the weighted average cost of FHLB advances to 0.94% for the year ended June 30, 2016 compared to 2.65% for the year ended June 30, 2015 and the increase in average loans receivable during the year. The average yield on interest-earning assets decreased five basis points to 4.91% for the year ended June 30, 2016 compared to 4.96% for the same period in the prior year. The average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 12 basis points to 1.01% for the year ended June 30, 2016 compared to 1.13% for the same period of the prior year reflecting the decline in the cost of FHLB advances and the low interest rate environment that persisted throughout the year.

Provision for loan losses. In connection with its analysis of the loan portfolio at June 30, 2016, management determined that a $175,000 provision for loan losses was required for the quarter compared to no provision for the same period in the prior year.  There was a $340,000 provision for loan losses for the year ended June 30, 2016 and no provision for loan losses was recorded during the last year.  The provision for loan losses during the quarter and year ended June 30, 2016, primarily reflects loan growth.

Noninterest income. Noninterest income decreased $606,000, or 36.6%, to $1.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to $1.7 million for the same quarter a year ago. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily attributable to the $485,000, or 79.2%, decrease in income from bank owned life insurance in the quarter ended June 30, 2016 to $127,000 compared to $612,000 for the same quarter a year ago primarily due to the receipt in the same period last year of $479,000 related to a former Anchor Bank executive's insurance death benefit.  In addition, other income decreased $175,000, or 49.0%, to $182,000 in the same period in 2015 primarily due to decreases in prepayment charges on commercial real estate loans.  The decrease was partially offset by an increase of $28,000, or 17.3%, to $190,000 for other loan fees as compared to the same quarter a year ago.  Noninterest income decreased $298,000, or 6.6%, to $4.2 million during the year ended June 30, 2016 compared to $4.5 million for the same period in 2015 primarily for the same reasons discussed above for the quarter.

Noninterest expense. Noninterest expense decreased $147,000, or 3.2%, to $4.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 from $4.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 primarily due to the decline in loss on sale of property, premises and equipment. During the fourth quarter of 2015 we recorded a $758,000 loss on sale of premises due to the sale of our Aberdeen Loan Center.  Compensation and benefits expense increased $364,000, or 18.0%, to $2.4 million primarily due to $526,000 of stock based compensation awarded under the Plan during the quarter ended June 30, 2016.  In addition, REO impairment expense totaled $31,000 during the quarter ended June 30, 2016, as compared to a recovery of $118,000 recorded in the same period last year.  Noninterest expense increased $1.2 million, or 7.2%, for the year ended June 30, 2016 to $18.0 million from $16.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2015.  The increase was primarily due to compensation and benefits expense increasing $1.7 million, or 21.3%, from $8.0 million at June 30, 2015 to $9.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2016.  The increase in compensation and benefits expense was primarily due to $1.8 million of stock based compensation awarded under the Plan.  General and administrative expenses increased $512,000 to $3.2 million for the year ended June 30, 2016 compared to $2.7 million for prior year primarily due to $391,000 in proxy contest expenses. Partially offsetting these increases was a decrease in loss on sale of property, premises and equipment of $816,000 from $820,000 in the previous year to $4,000 in the year ended June 30, 2016 related to the sale of the Aberdeen Loan Center during fiscal 2015.  In addition, REO holding costs decreased $204,000, or 76.4%, from $267,000 to $63,000 as compared to the same period in 2015, reflecting the REO portfolio containing more residential REO properties instead of commercial real estate REO properties which historically incur higher REO holding costs.

(1) Net income (loss) divided by average total assets, annualized. (2) Net income (loss) divided by average equity, annualized. (3) Average equity divided by average total assets. (4) Difference between weighted average yield on interest-earning assets and weighted average rate on interest-bearing liabilities. (5) Net interest income as a percentage of average interest-earning assets. (6) Noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income. (7) Tangible book value per common share excludes intangible assets. Tangible assets excludes intangible assets. This ratio represents a non-GAAP financial measure. See also Non-GAAP Financial Measures reconciliation tables below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures: In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles utilized in the United States ("GAAP"), this earnings release contains the tangible book value per share, a non-GAAP financial measure. We calculate tangible common equity by excluding intangible assets from stockholders' equity. We calculate tangible book value per share by dividing tangible common equity by the number of common shares outstanding.  We calculate tangible common equity by excluding intangible assets from stockholders' equity. The Company believes that this measure is consistent with the capital treatment by our bank regulatory agencies, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios and presents this measure to facilitate comparison of the quality and composition of the Company's capital over time and in comparison to its competitors. This non-GAAP financial measure has inherent limitations, is not required to be uniformly applied and is not audited. Further, the non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for book value per share or total stockholders' equity determined in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is presented below.
