ASHEVILLE, N.C., Jan. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HomeTrust Bancshares, Inc. (Nasdaq:HTBI) (Company or HomeTrust), the holding company of HomeTrust Bank, today announced preliminary net income of $2.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, compared to $2.3 million for the same period a year ago. Net income totaled $6.2 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013 compared to net income of $3.4 million for the same period in 2012. The increase in net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was primarily a result of a $700,000 recovery from the allowance for loan losses and a $305,000 increase in net interest income. The increase in net income was partially offset by a $607,000 decrease in other non-interest income primarily driven by a decrease in mortgage banking income and fees for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to the same period last year. On a basic and diluted per share basis, the Company earned $0.15 and $0.32 per share for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013; while it earned $0.11 and $0.17 per share for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012, respectively.

In announcing these results, Chairman, President, and CEO, Dana Stonestreet remarked, "Our earnings continue to benefit from a lower provision for loan losses due to a continued positive trend in our asset quality as net loan chargeoffs and classified assets continue to decline. Classified assets as a percentage of total assets decreased to 6.33%, at December 31, 2013 from 8.04% a year ago. Additionally, we are enthusiastic about the impending acquisition of Jefferson Bancshares, a strong, like-minded company. This acquisition will allow us to enter into growth markets in East Tennessee and create tremendous synergies to enhance shareholder value."

On January 23, 2014, HomeTrust and Jefferson Bancshares, Inc. ("Jefferson") (Nasdaq:JFBI), announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement. The combined company will have approximately $2.1 billion in assets. "The combination of HomeTrust and Jefferson is consistent with our stated business strategy to appropriately utilize capital and increase operating efficiency to create a 'win-win' opportunity for both our shareholders and the communities we serve," Stonestreet added.

Income Statement Review

Net interest income was $13.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to $13.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The $305,000, or 2.2%, increase was primarily due to a $521,000 reduction in interest expense outpacing a decrease in interest income of $216,000. The net interest margin (on a fully taxable-equivalent basis) for the three months ended December 31, 2013 decreased two basis points over the same period last year to 3.89%. 

Net interest income was $27.2 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013 compared to $27.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The $83,000, or 0.3%, increase was primarily due to a $1.2 million decrease in interest expense outpacing a $1.1 million decrease in interest income. The net interest margin (on a fully taxable-equivalent basis) for the six months ended December 31, 2013 decreased three basis points over the same period last year to 3.82%.

Non-interest income was $2.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $2.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The $607,000, or 21.3%, decrease was driven by a $721,000 decrease in mortgage banking income and fees and was partially offset by a $110,000 increase in other income resulting from higher investment services income. Mortgage banking income and fees declined as refinance activity was significantly curtailed as a result of the recent rise in long term interest rates. Non-interest expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 decreased $35,000, or 0.3%, to $13.3 million compared to $13.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. This decrease was primarily related to a $1.5 million Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advance prepayment penalty recorded for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 while no FHLB prepayments were made during the current quarter. The expense reductions were partially offset by a $1.2 million, or 18.8%, increase in salaries and employee benefits primarily as a result of awards made under the Company's 2013 Omnibus Incentive Plan approved by stockholders in January 2013 and the July 31, 2013, acquisition of BankGreenville Financial Corporation ("BankGreenville"), as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Non-interest income was $4.5 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013 compared to $5.2 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The $679,000, or 13.1%, decrease was driven by an $899,000, or 33.5%, decrease in mortgage banking income and fees and was partially offset by a $190,000, or 15.7%, increase in other non-interest income resulting from bank owned life insurance and investment services income. Non-interest expense for the six months ended December 31, 2013 decreased $1.6 million, or 5.8%, to $25.2 million from $26.8 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. This decrease was primarily related to a $3.1 million, or 100%, decrease in FHLB advance prepayment penalties and an $843,000, or 45.1%, decrease in REO-related expenses. This decrease was partially offset by a $2.0 million, or 16.1%, increase in salaries and employee benefits as a result of awards made under the Company's 2013 Omnibus Incentive Plan and the BankGreenville acquisition, as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

The Company's income tax expense was $606,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, an increase of $125,000, compared to an expense of $481,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. This increase was due to higher income before income taxes. The Company's effective income tax rate for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was 17.4%.

For the six months ended December 31, 2013, the company's income tax expense was $3.3 million, an increase of $3.0 million, compared to an expense of $298,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2012. This increase was due to higher income before income taxes, as well as, a nonrecurring $962,000 charge to tax expense for the decrease in the value of our deferred tax assets as a result of reductions in North Carolina's state corporate tax rates over the next two years. Beginning January 1, 2014, North Carolina's corporate tax rate was reduced to 6.0% from 6.9% and will be further reduced to 5.0% in 2015 with possible further reductions to 3.0% in 2017 in the event certain state revenue triggers are achieved. The Company's effective income tax rate for the six months ended December 31, 2013 was 34.5%.

Balance Sheet Review

Total assets increased $46.0 million, or 2.9%, to $1.63 billion at December 31, 2013 from $1.58 billion at June 30, 2013. This increase was largely due to the July 31, 2013 BankGreenville acquisition, which increased total assets by $101.1 million. Securities available for sale increased $57.9 million, or 234.0%, to $82.7 million at December 31, 2013 from $24.8 million at June 30, 2013 as a result of the purchase of $49.3 million in investment securities coupled with $34.3 million in investment securities acquired from BankGreenville. In addition, net loans receivable increased $10.8 million, or 1.0%, to $1.14 billion at December 31, 2013 from $1.13 billion at June 30, 2013, as the $47.8 million in loans acquired from BankGreenville were partially offset by normal loan repayments, charge-offs and transfers to real estate owned ("REO"). We also recorded $2.8 million of goodwill and $530,000 of core deposit intangibles in connection with the BankGreenville acquisition.

Total deposits increased $56.7 million, or 4.9%, from $1.15 billion at June 30, 2013 to $1.21 billion at December 31, 2013. This increase was due to $89.1 million of deposits acquired from BankGreenville. Other borrowings increased from none at June 30, 2013 to $2.2 million at December 31, 2013 as a result of obligations assumed in the BankGreenville acquisition.

Stockholders' equity at December 31, 2013 decreased to $358.1 million from $367.5 million at June 30, 2013. This decrease was primarily a result of the repurchase of 1,041,245 shares at a price of $17.1 million during the six months ended December 31, 2013, partially offset by a $6.2 million increase in retained earnings as a result of the net income during the period. As of December 31, 2013, all of the 1,041,245 shares authorized in the August 2013 stock repurchase plan had been purchased at an average cost of $16.38 per share. As of December 31, 2013, HomeTrust Bank was considered "well capitalized" in accordance with its regulatory capital guidelines and exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with Tier 1 Leverage, Tier 1 Risk-Based, and Total Risk-Based capital ratios of 15.59%, 22.34%, and 23.61%, respectively. As of December 31, 2012, these ratios were 14.73%, 20.70%, and 21.98%, respectively. 

Asset Quality

The allowance for loan losses was $27.1 million, or 2.32% of total loans, at December 31, 2013 compared to $32.1 million, or 2.75% of total loans, at June 30, 2013. 

The recovery for loan losses was $(700,000) for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to a $300,000 provision for loan losses for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in the provision was due to the combination of lower non-performing and classified loans, fewer loan charge-offs and lower average loan balances compared to the same period last year. Net loan charge-offs decreased to $1.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 from $1.9 million for the same period during last year. Net loan charge-offs for the three months ended December 31, 2013 included a $2.0 million write-down on a group of impaired loans currently held for sale with an original principal balance of $7.9 million. Excluding the write-down, the Company would have posted a recovery of $611,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013. Net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans decreased to 0.46% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 from 0.64% for the same period last fiscal year. Average loans receivable decreased $24.2 million, or 2.0%, to $1.19 billion in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 from $1.22 billion in the same quarter of fiscal 2013.

The recovery for loan losses was $(3.0) million for the six months ended December 31, 2013 compared to a $1.8 million provision for loan losses for the same period in 2012. The decrease in the provision was due to the combination of lower non-performing and classified loans, fewer loan charge-offs and lower average loan balances compared to the same period last year. Net loan charge-offs decreased to $1.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013 from $2.7 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. Net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans decreased to 0.33% for the six months ended December 31, 2013 from 0.43% for the same period last year. Average loans receivable decreased $31.8 million, or 2.6%, to $1.19 billion in the first six months of fiscal 2014 from $1.23 billion during the same period in fiscal 2013.

Nonperforming assets decreased to $66.6 million, or 4.09% of total assets, at December 31, 2013, compared to $80.3 million, or 5.07% of total assets, at June 30, 2013 and $85.1 million, or 5.36% at December 31, 2012. The decrease in nonperforming assets during the first six months of fiscal 2014 was primarily driven by a reduction in nonaccruing loans and REO. Nonperforming assets included $56.7 million in nonaccruing loans and $9.9 million in REO at December 31, 2013, compared to nonaccruing loans and REO of $68.6 million and $11.7 million at June 30, 2013 and $72.4 million and $12.7 million at December 31, 2012, respectively. At December 31, 2013, $31.4 million, or 55.4%, of nonaccruing loans were current on their loan payments.

The ratio of classified assets to total assets decreased to 6.33% at December 31, 2013 from 7.43% at June 30, 2013 and 8.04% at December 31, 2012. Classified assets decreased to $103.1 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $117.6 million and $127.6 million at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, primarily as a result of our efforts to return nonperforming loans to performing status, loans being paid off and sales of REO.

(1)  Derived from audited financial statements.
(2)  Net of allowances for loan losses, loans in process and deferred loan fees.
(3)  Non-performing assets include nonaccruing loans, consisting of certain restructured loans, and real estate owned. There were no accruing loans more than 90 days past due at the dates indicated. At December 31, 2013, there were $21.1 million of restructured loans included in nonaccruing loans and $31.4 million, or 55.4%, of nonaccruing loans were current on their loan payments.
(4)  REO-related expenses include loss on sale and impairment of REO and all other REO-related expenses.
(5)  Ratios are annualized where appropriate.
(6)  The weighted average rate for municipal leases is adjusted for a 34% federal tax rate since the interest from these leases is tax exempt.
(7)  Net interest income divided by average interest earning assets.
(8)  As presented in this earnings release, the efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total non-interest expense, net of FHLB advance prepayment penalties and REO-related expenses, by the sum of net interest income, total non-interest income and the tax equivalent adjustment, net of realized gain/loss on securities.The efficiency ratio, tangible book value,and tangible book value per share are non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles utilized in the United States) financial measures. The Company believes the efficiency ratio as presented is useful for both investors and management to understand the effects of certain non-interest items and provides an alternative view of the Company's performance over time and in comparison to the Company's competitors. The Company believes that tangible book value and tangible book value per share are useful for both investors and management as these are measures commonly used by financial institutions, regulators and investors to measure the capital adequacy of financial institutions. The Company believes these measures facilitate comparison of the quality and composition of the Company's capital over time and in comparison to its competitors. These non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied and are not audited. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for total stockholders' equity or operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures (including the efficiency ratio, tangible book value and tangible book value per share), is included in tabular form below:
Set forth below is a reconciliation to GAAP of the non-GAAP efficiency ratio shown in the table above:
