HONOLULU, Aug. 2, 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 $3.8 million or $0.38 per basic and $0.37 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $3.4 million or $0.31 per basic and $0.30 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Net income increased by $461,000 or 13.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to the same period in 2011. The increase in the earnings for the second quarter was primarily due to higher mortgage loan originations, which in turn, increased the interest earned on loans. The increase in earnings can also be attributed to lower interest expense on deposits and borrowings, and greater gains on the sales of mortgage loans.
The Company also announced that its Board of Directors today approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.11 per share of common stock. The dividend is expected to be paid on August 30, 2012, to stockholders of record as of August 16, 2012.
Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We continue to focus on our core earnings – increasing loan production while striving for good asset quality and growing our deposit base. I am also glad to announce that based on our performance, we will pay a quarterly dividend of $0.11 per share of common stock."
For the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, net interest income was $13.0 million and $12.9 million, respectively. Total interest and dividend income was $15.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $15.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011.
The growth in net interest income is primarily due to a $347,000 increase in interest earned on loans which occurred because of an increase in loan originations. The growth in interest income on loans was offset by a $596,000 decrease in interest earned on investment securities which occurred primarily because of an increase in principal repayments on mortgage backed securities and reinvestment of these repayments at lower interest rates. There was a $340,000 decline in interest expense primarily due to the lower interest rate environment. Our net interest margin for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was 3.41% compared to 3.56% for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in the net interest margin resulted from higher levels of liquidity and an increase in principal payments on higher yielding loans and mortgage-backed securities and reinvestment of these repayments at lower interest rates.
Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses
Total interest expense decreased to $2.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $2.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in interest expense is primarily due to a $221,000 decrease in interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase which occurred when the Bank prepaid $15.0 million of borrowings. Interest expense on deposits also declined by $119,000 due to the lower interest rate environment. Provision for loan losses decreased by $93,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 because of the improved credit quality of the loan portfolio.
Noninterest income was $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $1.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The growth in noninterest income was primarily due to a $314,000 increase in gain on sale of loans and a $172,000 increase in gain on sale of investment securities. The increase in gain on sale of loans for 2012 was primarily due to an increase in the amount of loans sold which occurred because of higher mortgage originations during the quarter. These increases were offset by a $118,000 decrease in service fees on loan and deposit accounts and a $177,000 decrease in other noninterest income.
Noninterest expense decreased to $8.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to $8.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in noninterest expense was primarily due to lower salaries and employee benefits expenses. This decrease was partially offset by a $198,000 loss on extinguishment of debt which was incurred when the Bank prepaid $15.0 million of securities sold under agreements to repurchase, which had a weighted-average interest rate of 4.93%, in the three months ended June 30, 2012.
Assets and Equity
Total assets grew to $1.566 billion at June 30, 2012, from $1.538 billion at December 31, 2011. Cash and cash equivalents increased to $156.4 million at June 30, 2012, from $131.9 million at December 31, 2011. Investment securities held to maturity decreased to $621.0 million as of June 30, 2012, from $653.9 million at December 31, 2011, as repayments and sales exceeded the amount of security purchases. Loans receivable grew to $726.2 million at June 30, 2012, from $688.1 million at December 31, 2011 and $661.4 million at June 30, 2011, due to an increase in residential mortgage loan originations. The growth in loans receivable since December 31, 2011 was primarily funded by a $47.2 million increase in deposits. Deposits increased to $1.213 billion at June 30, 2012, from $1.166 billion at December 31, 2011 and $1.107 billion at June 30, 2011. Total stockholders' equity increased to $216.3 million at June 30, 2012, from $214.0 million at December 31, 2011. The growth in stockholders' equity was primarily due to the Company's earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2012, which was offset by the cost of shares repurchased under the Company's stock repurchase program and dividend payments for the first and second quarters of 2012. The Board of Directors previously authorized three repurchase programs. Through the end of June 30, 2012, 1,315,253 shares were repurchased in the first and second repurchase programs. In addition, the Company was authorized to repurchase up to 552,000 shares in the third repurchase program. Through June 30, 2012, 273,461 shares have been repurchased in the third repurchase program.
Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing was $1.9 million (10 loans) at June 30, 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 0.20% at June 30, 2012, from 0.22% at December 31, 2011. The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2012 was $1.5 million and represented 0.20% of total loans. At December 31, 2011, the allowance for loan losses was also $1.5 million and represented 0.22% of total loans.
