Malvern Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Fiscal Quarter 2019 Results

PAOLI, PA., July 31, 2019 -- Malvern Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLVF) (the "Company"), parent company of Malvern Bank, National Association (“Malvern” or the “Bank”), today reported operating results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019. Net income amounted to $2.7 million, or $0.35 per fully diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared with net income of $2.2 million, or $0.35 per fully diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Annualized return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 0.88 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 0.85 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2018, and annualized return on average equity (“ROAE”) was 7.66 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared with 8.40 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Excluding provision expense, net of tax, of $44,000, third fiscal quarter 2019 adjusted ROAA was 0.89 percent and adjusted ROAE was 7.79 percent.

 

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, net income amounted to $6.6 million, or $0.87 per fully diluted common share, compared with net income of $4.7 million, or $0.72 per fully diluted common share, for the nine months ended June 30, 2018. ROAA was 0.78 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 0.59 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2018, and ROAE was 6.48 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2019, compared with 5.92 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2018. Excluding provision expense, net of tax, of $1.9 million, adjusted ROAA was 1.00 percent and adjusted annualized ROAE was 8.34 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2019.

“Our top line revenue increased despite the lower net growth in loans during the period.  Other aspects of operations were also positive, and we believe we are well positioned to execute our strategic plan through the remainder of fiscal 2019 and into 2020.  Our continued focus on client service remains constant and is a key driver in gathering customer relationships, fueling the business model advancement and our resulting performance,” commented Anthony C. Weagley, President and Chief Executive Officer. 

Joseph D. Gangemi, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, added: “Liquidity remained elevated to fuel loan growth during the quarter and anticipated loan growth in the fourth fiscal quarter. While the large cash balances do have a dampening effect on margins, we expect liquidity to continue to remain elevated to fund current pipelines, we also anticipate a positive impact on margins with the investment of our cash into loans.”

Net Interest Income

Net interest income both as reported and on a fully tax equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, was $7.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019. Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, increased $450,000, or 6.4 percent, from $7.0 million for the comparable three-month period in fiscal 2018. The change for the three months ended June 30, 2019 primarily was the result of an increase of $145.7 million in the average balance of loans. The increase in average loans primarily reflects a net increase in commercial loans and, to a lesser extent, a net increase in residential loans. The net interest spread on an annualized tax-equivalent basis was 2.29 percent and 2.56 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, the Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis decreased to 2.54 percent as compared to 2.75 percent for the same three-month period in fiscal 2018.

 Net interest income both as reported and on a fully tax equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, was $21.7 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2019. Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, increased $1.7 million, or 8.4 percent, from $20.0 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2018. The change for the nine months ended June 30, 2019 primarily was the result of an increase of $121.3 million in the average balance of, primarily commercial loans. The net interest spread on an annualized tax-equivalent basis was 2.36 percent and 2.43 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, the Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis increased slightly to 2.62 percent as compared to 2.60 percent for the same nine-month period in fiscal 2018.

Total Interest Income

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, total interest income both as reported and on a fully tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, was $12.5 million. Total interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, increased $2.2 million, or 21.7 percent, from $10.2 million for three months ended June 30, 2018, primarily due to a $145.7 million increase in the average balance of our loans.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, total interest income both as reported and on a fully tax equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, was $35.0 million. Total interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, increased $5.5 million, or 18.7 percent, from $29.5 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2018. Interest income rose for the nine months ended June 30, 2019, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2018, primarily due to a $121.3 million increase in average loan balances. Compared to the nine months ended June 30, 2018, average interest earning assets increased $77.7 million, the net interest spread decreased on an annualized tax-equivalent basis by seven basis points and the net interest margin increased slightly on an annualized tax-equivalent basis by two basis points at nine months ended June 30, 2019. Total interest expense increased by $3.8 million, or 40.3 percent, to $13.3 million, for the nine months ended June 30, 2019, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2018.

Interest Expense

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, interest expense increased by $1.8 million, or 55.0 percent, to $5.0 million, for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to the same period in fiscal 2018, primarily due to an increase of $169.3 in deposits and an increase in average rates. The increase in deposits reflects an increase in interest-bearing demand and time deposits. The annualized average rate of total interest-bearing liabilities increased 50 basis points to 1.95 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2019, from 1.45 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and, on a linked sequential quarter basis, increased from 1.85 percent or ten basis points compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019. At the same time, the average balance of total interest-bearing liabilities increased by $131.3 million. This increase primarily reflects an increase in the average balance of total interest-bearing deposit accounts of $136.5 million and a decrease in the average balance of borrowings of $5.2 million. 

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, interest expense increased by $3.8 million, or 40.3 percent, to $13.3 million, for the nine months ended June 30, 2019, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2018. The average rate of total interest-bearing liabilities increased 46 basis points to 1.86 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2019, from 1.40 percent for the nine months ended June 30, 2018. At the same time, the average balance of total interest-bearing liabilities increased by $52.1 million. This increase primarily reflects an increase in the average balance of deposits of $62.7 million and a decrease in the average balance of borrowings of $10.6 million.  The increase in the average balance of deposits consisted primarily of a $66.7 million increase in the average balance of other interest-bearing deposit accounts, a $194,000 increase in the average balance of certificates of deposit accounts, an $80,000 increase in the average balance of savings deposits, and a $4.3 million decrease in the average balance of money market accounts.

Other Income

Other income decreased $261,000, or 36.5 percent, during the third fiscal quarter of 2019 compared with the same period in 2018. The decrease in total other income was due to a $278,000 decrease in service charges and other fees, a $10,000 decrease in rental income, and a $3,000 decrease in net gains on sale of loans, partially offset by a $27,000 gain on sale of investments and a $3,000 increase in earnings on bank-owned life insurance. The decrease in service charges and other fees during the three months ended June 30, 2019 is primarily due to lower net swap fees through the Bank’s commercial loan hedging program.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, other income decreased $834,000 compared to the same period in 2018. This decrease was primarily a result of a $1.2 million gain recorded in 2018 on the sale of the Exton, Pennsylvania branch location. Additionally, there was a $59,000 decrease in net gains on sale of loans and a $12,000 decrease in rental income, partially offset by an increase of $392,000 in service charges, a $27,000 gain on sale of investments and a $4,000 increase in earnings on bank-owned life insurance. The non-proportional increase in service charges and other fees during the nine months ended June 30, 2019 is primarily due to the recognition of approximately $708,000 of net swap fees through the Bank’s commercial loan hedging program during the first fiscal quarter of 2019. The primary benefit of the loan hedging program is to manage the interest rate risk on long term fixed rate loans while allowing Malvern to compete in the market and offer competitive financing to our clients.

Other Expense

Total other expense for the three months ended June 30, 2019 decreased $293,000, or 6.1 percent, when compared to the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to a $683,000 decrease in professional fees due to lower legal expense, a $17,000 decrease in occupancy expense, a $15,000 decrease in data processing expense, partially offset by a $199,000 increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $191,000 increase in other operating expense, a $30,000 increase in net other real estate owned expense, and a $2,000 increase in federal deposit insurance premium. The increase in salaries and employee benefits during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 reflects normal increases to salary and benefits and three strategic hires to support overall franchise growth consistent with the business plan. The increase in other operating expenses during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to the Pennsylvania shares tax related to the Bank’s new standing as a National Association. The Bank converted its charter in February 2018.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, total other expense decreased $332,000, or 2.5 percent, compared to the same period in 2018. The decrease primarily reflected a $967,000 decrease in professional fees, a $55,000 decrease in data processing expense, $49,000 decrease in occupancy expense, a $32,000 decrease in advertising expense, and a $7,000 decrease in the federal deposit insurance premium. These decreases were offset by a $429,000 increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $270,000 increase in other operating expenses and a $79,000 increase in net other real estate owned expense. The decrease in professional fees during the nine-month period ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to lower legal expense. The increase in salaries and employee benefits during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 reflects normal increases to salary and benefits and three strategic hires to support overall franchise growth consistent with the business plan. The increase in other operating expenses during the nine-month period ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to the Pennsylvania shares tax related to the Bank’s new standing as a National Association.

Loans

Total net loans amounted to $1.0 billion at June 30, 2019 compared to $902.1 million at September 30, 2018, for a net increase of $107.8 million or 12.0 percent. The allowance for loan losses amounted to $10.1 million and $9.0 million at June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively. Average loans during the third fiscal quarter of 2019 totaled $1.0 billion as compared to $864.3 million during the third fiscal quarter of 2018, representing a 16.9 percent increase.

At the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2019, the loan portfolio remained weighted toward two primary components: commercial and the core residential portfolio, with commercial loans accounting for 70.2 percent and single-family residential real estate loans accounting for 21.2 percent of the loan portfolio. Construction and development loans amounted to 5.0 percent and consumer loans represented 3.6 percent of the loan portfolio at such date. The increase in the loan portfolio at June 30, 2019 compared to September 30, 2018, primarily reflected an increase of $84.6 million in commercial loans, an increase of $18.9 million in residential mortgage loans, a $4.6 million increase in construction and development loans, and an $886,000 increase in consumer loans.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, the Company originated total new loan volume of $60.2 million, which was offset by loan payoffs of $24.0 million, prepayments totaling $13.7 million, amortization of $7.1 million, and participations of $2.5 million.

Subsequent to quarter-end, in July 2019 the Company completed the sale of one commercial real estate loan classified as held for sale. The loan had an aggregate book balance of $367,000 and was sold at a gain of approximately $17,000. As a result, our consolidated statement of financial condition at June 30, 2019 includes $367,000 of one commercial real estate loan as held for sale. As such it is not considered to be included in our loan portfolio at June 30, 2019.  Net proceeds from the sale amounted to $384,000 after deducting amounts due for outstanding liens, related expenses and applicable transfer fees. This transaction resulted in a decrease of approximately $17,000 through the provision for loan loss during the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

At June 30, 2019, the Company had $140.3 million in overall undisbursed loan commitments, which consisted primarily of unused commercial lines of credit, home equity lines of credit and available usage from active construction facilities. The Company's current "Approved, Accepted but Unfunded" pipeline at June 30, 2019 included approximately $81.7 million in commercial and construction loans and $21.4 million in residential mortgage loans expected to fund over the following quarter.


Asset Quality

Non-accrual loans, all of which were making payments at June 30, 2019, were $2.2 million at June 30, 2019, a decrease of $498,000, or 18.5 percent, as compared to $2.7 million at September 30, 2018. The decrease in non-accrual loans was primarily due to the transfer of one commercial real estate loan with an aggregate book balance of $367,000 to loans held for sale (as noted above, such loan sale was subsequently completed in July 2019). The portfolio of non-accrual loans at June 30, 2019 was comprised of fourteen residential real estate loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $1.8 million, and thirteen consumer loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $339,000.

At June 30, 2019, non-performing assets totaled $8.2 million, or 0.65 percent of total assets, as compared with $3.1 million, or 0.30 percent of total assets, at September 30, 2018. The increase in non-performing assets at June 30, 2019 compared to September 30, 2018 was primarily due to the transfer to Other Real Estate Owned (“OREO”), of one commercial real estate loan in the amount of $5.8 million. 

OREO was $5.8 million at June 30, 2019 and zero at September 30, 2018, as previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on December 14, 2018. Excluding the OREO property of $5.8 million, NPAs totaled $2.4 million, or 0.19 percent of total assets at June 30, 2019.

Performing Troubled Debt Restructuring (“TDR”) loans were $11.8 million at June 30, 2019 and $18.6 million at September 30, 2018.

Efficiency ratio, non-GAAP(3)   56.9%   57.6%   48.1%   58.3%   52.9%

______________________          

(1)     Non-core items for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 consisted of expenses arising out of the dismissal of the Company’s Certifying Accountant, 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. Non-core items for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 consisted of additional legal and accounting fees arising out of matters pertaining to prior period restatements. The Company believes these adjustments are helpful to provide insight into core operating results as a means to evaluate comparative results.

(2)     Included in non-core items such as accelerated payoff and non-accrual interest amounts.

 

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

For the quarter ended:  6/30/19  3/31/19  12/31/18  9/30/18  6/30/18
Efficiency ratio on a GAAP basis   56.8%   57.8%   50.6%   58.9%   62.3%

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 and 24.5 percent for each of the prior periods presented. 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.

The Company cautions readers that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following: the strength of the United States economy in general and the strength of the local economies in which the Company conducts operations; the effects of, and changes in, trade, monetary and fiscal policies and laws, including interest rate policies of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; inflation, interest rate, market and monetary fluctuations; the impact of competition and the acceptance of the Company’s products and services by new and existing customers; the impact of changes in financial services policies, laws and regulations (including the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act) and of governmental efforts to restructure the U.S. financial regulatory system; technological changes; changes in the level of the Company’s nonperforming assets and charge offs; any oversupply of inventory and deterioration in values of real estate in the markets in which the Company operates, both residential and commercial; the effect of changes in accounting policies and practices, as may be adopted from time-to-time by bank regulatory agencies, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other accounting standards setters; possible other-than-temporary impairment of securities held by us; changes in consumer spending, borrowing and savings habits; the effects of the Company’s lack of a widely-diversified loan portfolio, including the risks of geographic and industry concentrations; ability to attract deposits and other sources of liquidity; changes in the financial performance and/or condition of our borrowers; changes in the competitive environment among financial and bank holding companies and other financial service providers; unanticipated regulatory or judicial proceedings; and the Company’s ability to manage the risk involved in the foregoing. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements are discussed in the 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K of Malvern Bancorp, Inc. filed with the SEC and available at the SEC’s Internet site (http://www.sec.gov).
