HONOLULU, May 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Territorial Bancorp Inc., (Nasdaq:TBNK) (the "Company"), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $3.5 million or $0.35 per basic and $0.34 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $3.0 million or $0.27 per basic and $0.26 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Net income increased by $540,000 or 18.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to the same period in 2011. The increase in earnings is primarily due to an increase in interest earned on loans due to higher loan volume, growth in interest earned on investment securities and an increase in gains realized on the sale of loans. The Company also saw a reduction in interest expense on deposits and securities sold under agreements to repurchase, due to the current low interest rate environment. These amounts were offset to some degree by higher non-interest expenses, including occupancy and other general and administrative expenses.
The Company also announced that its Board of Directors today approved an increase in its quarterly cash dividend from $0.10 to $0.11 per share of common stock. The dividend is expected to be paid on June 1, 2012, to stockholders of record as of May 18, 2012.
Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said "Our core earnings and net interest income increased due to improved loan originations and growth in deposits. I am also pleased to announce that due to our strong performance we will increase our quarterly dividend from $0.10 to $0.11 per share of common stock."
For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, net interest income was $13.1 million and $12.5 million, respectively. The growth in net interest income is due to a $283,000 increase in interest and dividend income earned and a $250,000 decline in interest expense. Total interest and dividend income was $15.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $15.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The growth in interest and dividend income occurred primarily due to an increase in interest earned on investment securities which totaled $6.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $6.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, and an increase in interest income earned on loans which totaled $9.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $8.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Our net interest margin decreased for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to the prior quarter ended December 31, 2011. The decrease resulted from higher levels of liquidity and lower levels of investment securities, primarily due to lower interest rates during the first quarter.
Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses
Total interest expense decreased to $2.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease in interest expense is primarily due to a $138,000 decline in interest expense on deposits due to the lower interest rate environment. Interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase also declined by $130,000 to $904,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, from $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, due to the repayment of $3.0 million of borrowings. Provision for loan losses decreased by $24,000 to $84,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $108,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.
Noninterest income was $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in noninterest income was primarily due to a $297,000 increase in gain on sale of loans and a $62,000 increase in gain on sale of investment securities.
Noninterest expense increased to $8.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $8.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to higher occupancy expense and other general and administrative expenses.
Assets and Equity
Total assets grew to $1.572 billion at March 31, 2012, from $1.538 billion at December 31, 2011. Cash and cash equivalents increased to $159.8 million at March 31, 2012 from $131.9 million at December 31, 2011. Investment securities held to maturity decreased to $637.9 million as of March 31, 2012, from $653.9 million at December 31, 2011, as repayments and sales exceed the amount of security purchases. Loans receivable grew to $711.5 million at March 31, 2012, from $688.1 million at December 31, 2011, due to an increase in residential mortgage loan production. Loans receivable at March 31, 2012 increased by 9.0% compared to the same period last year. The growth in loans receivable was primarily funded by a $35.3 million increase in deposits. Deposits increased to $1.201 billion at March 31, 2012 from $1.166 billion at December 31, 2011. Deposits at March 31, 2012 increased by 9.6% compared to the same period last year. Total stockholders' equity increased to $217.0 million at March 31, 2012, from $214.0 million at December 31, 2011. The change in stockholders' equity was primarily due to the Company's earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2012, which were offset by the cost of shares repurchased under the Company's stock repurchase program and payment of dividends for the fourth quarter of 2011. The Board of Directors previously authorized three repurchase programs. Through the end of March 31, 2012, the first and second repurchase programs had been completed with 733,988 and 581,265 shares repurchased respectively. In addition, the Company was authorized to repurchase up to 552,000 shares in the third repurchase program. Through March 31, 2012, 49,934 shares had been repurchased in the third repurchase program.
Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing was $1.7 million (8 loans) at March 31, 2012, compared to $2.3 million (9 loans) at December 31, 2011. Asset quality remained strong with the ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets decreasing to 0.17% at March 31, 2012, from 0.22% at December 31, 2011. The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2012 was $1.5 million and represented 0.21% of total loans. At December 31, 2011, the allowance for loan losses was also $1.5 million and represented 0.22% of total loans.
