Item 4.02       Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

 

As originally disclosed in Malvern Bancorp, Inc.’s (the “Company”) Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on January 29, 2021 (the “Original 10-K”), the Company recorded the impairment as of September 30, 2020 of a $13.5 million commercial real estate loan (“the Loan”), which had been classified as impaired collateral dependent non-accrual COVID-19 deferred loan as of September 30, 2020. As reported in the Original 10-K, the Company estimated the fair value of the collateral and recorded a partial charge down of approximately $2.9 million and a specific reserve of approximately $581,000, and reversed approximately $266,000 of interest income as of September 30, 2020, pending the receipt of a third party appraisal, which as previously disclosed by the Company in the Original 10-K, could result in further impairment.

 

Subsequent to the filing of the Original 10-K, the Company received the third-party appraisal report dated February 11, 2021, that provides a collateral value materially less than the Company’s previously reported estimate as of September 30, 2020, indicating an additional $3.1 million impairment.  The variance to the Company’s previously reported estimate is primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on, and dislocation within, the New York City real estate market.  Based upon the third-party appraisal and resulting impairment, the Company has determined to record an additional $3.95 million provision for loan losses for the three months ended  September 30, 2020.  Accordingly, the Company plans to amend and restate the Original 10-K, and therefore investors should no longer rely on the consolidated financial statements contained in the Original 10-K.

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On February 16, 2021, the Company issued a press release regarding an additional impairment with respect to a previously announced impaired commercial real estate loan and its intention to amend and restate the Original 10-K.  A copy of the Company’s press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is hereby incorporated by reference.

Malvern Bancorp, Inc. Reports Additional Impairment to Previously Announced Impaired Loan and Anticipated Filing of Amended 10-K

 

PAOLI, PA., February 16, 2021 -- Malvern Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLVF) (the “Company”), the parent company of Malvern Bank, National Association, today announced an additional impairment with respect to a previously announced impaired commercial real estate loan.  As reported in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 29, 2021 (the “10-K”), the Company partially charged-off a $13.5 million New York City commercial real estate loan (the “Loan”), and classified the Loan as “non-accruing” as of September 30, 2020.  The partial charge off, as reported in the 10-K, amounted to approximately $2.9 million and resulted in a specific reserve of approximately $581,000, pending the receipt of a third-party appraisal.  As disclosed in the 10-K, further impairment of the Loan could be warranted following receipt of the appraisal report.

Subsequent to the filing of the 10-K, the Company received the third-party appraisal report dated February 11, 2021, that provides a collateral value materially less than the Company’s previously reported estimate as of September 30, 2020, indicating an additional $3.1 million impairment.  The variance to the Company’s previously reported estimate is primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on, and dislocation within, the New York City real estate market.  Based upon the third-party appraisal and resulting impairment, the Company has determined to record an additional $3.95 million provision for loan losses for the three months ended September 30, 2020.  Accordingly, the Company plans to amend and restate the 10-K, and therefore investors should no longer rely on the consolidated financial statements contained in the 10-K.

The increase in the provision for loan losses reduces the Company’s net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 from a previously reported net loss of $546,000, or $0.07 per diluted share, to a net loss of $3.5 million or $0.46 per diluted share.  For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, the Company’s net income is reduced from $3.6 million, or $0.47 per fully diluted share, as previously reported, to $644,000 or $0.08 per fully diluted share.

 


 

The Company is in the process of amending and restating its 10-K and is also in the process of finalizing its first fiscal Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 (the “10-Q”).  The 10-Q will be delayed as the Company prepares its restated 10-K/A.
