Malvern Bancorp, Inc. Reports First Fiscal Quarter 2020 Results

 

PAOLI, PA., January 30, 2020 — Malvern Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLVF) (the "Company"), parent company of Malvern Bank, National Association (“Malvern” or the “Bank”), today reported operating results for the first quarter ended December 31, 2019. Net income amounted to $2.5 million, or $0.33 per fully diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, compared with net income of $2.0 million, or $0.27 per fully diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. Annualized return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 0.82 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, compared to 0.74 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, and annualized return on average equity (“ROAE”) was 6.97 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, compared with 6.00 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

 

“We are pleased that we managed our balance sheet in a declining interest rate environment to produce solid results. Despite an unusually high level of payoffs during our first quarter, resulting in a net portfolio decline for the quarter, we still produced loan growth of $70 million, or 7.6 percent, year over year, while remaining vigilant and disciplined with respect to credit metrics and underwriting. We believe we are positioned well for steady and measured growth throughout fiscal 2020,” commented Anthony C. Weagley, President and Chief Executive Officer.

 

Joseph D. Gangemi, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, added: “The Bank has taken strategic actions to reduce its excess cash balances to better match fund loans. We have also started reducing deposit rates consistent with the declining interest rate environment, while improving the funding mix. Average cash was reduced approximately $22 million during the first fiscal quarter. These efforts, combined with top line revenue growth, should help to improve our net interest margin.”

Net Interest Income

 

Net interest income was $6.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, a decrease of $35,000, or 0.5 percent, from $6.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The change for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 primarily was the result of an increase in total interest-bearing liabilities of $121.0 million partially offset by an increase of $94.5 million in the average balance of loans. The increase in average loans primarily reflects a net increase in commercial loans and residential loans.  The net interest spread on an annualized basis was 2.09 percent and 2.40 percent for the quarters ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, decreased to 2.35 percent as compared to 2.65 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

 

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, decreased by approximately fourteen basis points when adjusted for the decline in the interest rate environment as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

 

Total Interest Income

 

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, total interest income was $11.8 million, an increase of $907,000, or 8.3 percent, from $10.9 million for quarter ended December 31, 2018, primarily due to a $94.5 million increase in the average balance of loans. Compared to the first quarter ended December 31, 2018, average interest earning assets increased $130.3 million.

 

Interest Expense

 

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, interest expense increased by $942,000, or 23.8 percent, to $4.9 million, compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2018, primarily due to increases in average rates paid on and average volume of deposits. The increase in interest expense on deposits reflects an increase of $86.0 million, $11.9 million, and $10.5 million in interest-bearing demand, money market, and certificate deposits, respectively. The annualized average rate of total interest-bearing liabilities increased sixteen basis points to 1.92 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, from 1.76 percent for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and, on a linked sequential quarter basis, decreased from 2.00 percent or eight basis points compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. At the same time, the average balance of total interest-bearing liabilities increased by $121.0 million with the increase reflecting an increase in the average balance of total interest-bearing deposit accounts of $105.5 million and an increase in the average balance of borrowings of $15.5 million.

 

Other Income

 

Other income decreased $703,000, or 61.3 percent, during the first fiscal quarter of 2020 compared with the same period in 2019. The decrease in other income was primarily due to a $681,000 decrease in service charges and other fees. The decrease in service charges and other fees during the quarter ended December 31, 2019 is primarily due to higher net swap fees of $710,000 through the Bank’s commercial loan hedging program realized during the quarter ending December 31, 2018.

 

Other Expense

 

Other expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 increased $328,000, or 8.0 percent, when compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The increase was primarily due to a $170,000 increase in the Pennsylvania shares tax, an increase of $117,000 in salaries and employee benefits and an increase of $62,000 in other operating expense. These were partially offset by a decrease of $72,000 in the federal deposit insurance premium. The increase in the Pennsylvania shares tax was primarily due to the imposition of the Pennsylvania shares tax related to the Bank’s new standing as a National Association during the second fiscal quarter of 2019. The increase in salaries and employee benefits reflect normal increases to salary and benefits. The reduction in the federal deposit insurance premium resulted from the Deposit Insurance Fund reserve ratio exceeding the official required reserve ratio, which in turn generates credits to qualified participating banks. The Company has a current credit balance of approximately $78,678 that can be used to offset premiums during the next several quarters, should FDIC reserves remain above the required reserve ratio level.

The decrease in the loan portfolio at December 31, 2019 compared to September 30, 2019, primarily reflected a decrease of $35.2 million in commercial loans, a $1.6 million decrease in consumer loans and were offset by an increase of $14.7 million in residential mortgage loans and a $9.0 million increase in construction and development loans.

 

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company originated total new loan volume of $69.9 million, which was offset by prepayments totaling $9.7 million, amortization of $10.8 million, loan payoffs of $56.0 million, and participations of $6.3 million.

“Efficiency ratio” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as other expense, excluding certain non-core items, as a percentage of net interest income on a tax equivalent basis, plus other income, calculated as follows:

 

(dollars in thousands)

Non-core items(2)   52    21        12    127 
Net interest income (tax equivalent basis), including non-core items, non-GAAP   6,972    7,447    7,471    7,275    7,085

Efficiency ratio, non-GAAP   58.7%   54.9%   56.6%   57.2%   52.3%

 

 

(1)Non-core items for the quarters ended December 31, 2019, September 30, 2019, June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018 include OREO expense relating to one commercial real estate loan. In addition, non-core items for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 consisted of expenses arising from the dismissal of the Company’s accounting firm, as previously announced in the Company’s Form 8-K filed on July 9, 2018, which required issuance of consent on previously audited consolidated financial statements.
(2)Items such as accelerated payoff and non-accrual interest amounts are included in non-core items.

 

The Company’s efficiency ratio, calculated on a GAAP basis, without excluding net investment securities gains, swap fees, and without deducting non-core items from other expense, follows:

 

For the quarter ended:  12/31/19   9/30/19   6/30/19   3/31/19   12/31/18 
Efficiency ratio on a GAAP basis   60.1%   55.9%   56.8%   57.8%   50.6%

 

Net interest margin, which is net interest income as a percentage of average interest-earning assets, is presented on a fully tax equivalent (“TE”) basis as we believe this non-GAAP measure is the preferred industry measurement for this item. The Company revised its estimated annual effective tax rate to reflect a change in the federal statutory rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, resulting from the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The TE basis adjusts GAAP interest income and yields for the tax benefit of income on certain tax-exempt investments using the blended statutory rate of 21 percent for the current period. Below is a reconciliation of GAAP net interest income to the TE basis and the related GAAP basis and TE net interest margins for the periods presented.
