Third Quarter and Fiscal Year Performance Highlights

  • Net Income: Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 amounted to $1.4 million or $0.32 per diluted common share, versus $1.7 million or $0.50 per diluted common share recorded in the same period a year ago reflecting the impact of merger-related charges recorded in the third quarter of 2019. The Company recorded net income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019 of $8.1 million or $2.06 per diluted common share compared with $4.6 million or $1.36 per diluted common share in the 2018 fiscal year.
  • Balance Sheet: Assets totaled a record $848.8 million at September 30, 2019, up $144.1 million from June 30, 2019 and up $198.9 million from September 30, 2018, primarily due to the CFSB acquisition, which added approximately $125 million in total assets at September 30, 2019, coupled with continued strong organic loan growth.
  • Continued Capital Strength: The Bank’s Tier 1 capital ratio was 10.47% and its Total Risk based capital ratio was 19.07% at September 30, 2019, each significantly above the regulatory minimums for a well-capitalized institution.

The growth in loans recorded during the third calendar quarter of 2019 is also net of $25.8 million in sales of performing credits during that period.

  • Market Expansion Through Acquisition:  On August 9, 2019, the Company completed its acquisition of CFSB, which added three branch locations, two in Manhattan and one in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, to the Hanover network.

MINEOLA, N.Y., Nov. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanover Bancorp, Inc. (“Hanover” or “the Company”), the holding company for Hanover Community Bank (“the Bank”) today reported significant performance achievements for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, highlighted by record levels of total assets, total loans, total deposits, stockholders’ equity and tangible book value per share.

Earnings Summary for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2019

The Company reported net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 of $1.4 million or $0.32 per diluted common share, versus $1.7 million or $0.50 per diluted common share from the comparable year ago period, representing a decrease of $328 thousand or 18.9%.

The decline in net income recorded in the third quarter of 2019 resulted from a $2.0 million increase in operating expenses resulting from growth in compensation and benefits (up $1.1 million), occupancy and equipment (up $366 thousand) and merger-related expenses (up $471 thousand) coupled with an increase in the Company’s effective tax rate to 32.4% from 24.3% a year ago.  Partially offsetting these negative trends were an improvement in net interest income (up $1.2 million) and a $570 thousand reduction in the provision for loan losses in 2019 versus the third quarter of 2018. An increase in average interest-earning assets of $168.4 million (27.7%) resulting from growth in average total loans of $127.8 million, or 22.9%, coupled with a 24 basis point increase in the average loan portfolio yield to 5.38% in the third calendar quarter of 2019, accounted for the year-over-year improvement in net interest income.

Excluding merger-related charges recorded in the third quarter of 2019, core (non-GAAP) operating net income was $1.8 million or $0.43 per diluted common share, down $18 thousand or 1.0% versus 2018. Third quarter returns on average total assets and average stockholders’ equity, excluding merger-related charges in each period, were 0.89% and 10.11%, respectively in 2019, versus 1.15% and 14.51% a year ago.

Earnings Summary for the Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2019

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, the Company reported record GAAP net income of $8.1 million or $2.06 per diluted common share versus $4.6 million or $1.36 per diluted common share a year ago. 

The improvement in earnings in 2019 resulted from significant increases in net interest income (up $4.1 million) and non-interest income (up $2.0 million) and a $1.0 million reduction in the provision for loan losses.  Partially offsetting the foregoing positive factors was an increase in operating expenses (up $4.0 million), principally the result of growth in staff and facilities to support the Company’s continued expansion and merger-related charges in connection with the CFSB acquisition.

Michael P. Puorro, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the Company’s results: “I am very pleased to report that we completed our acquisition of Chinatown Federal Savings Bank during the third quarter and we also seamlessly converted their core operating system to our Fiserv platform within 30 days of closing.  We are excited about the potential for our three new branch locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn and have been actively marketing the full suite of Hanover products to members of these communities. We also continued our strong operating momentum in the third calendar quarter of 2019 by staying focused on our core loan generation strategy which continues to result in excellent annual portfolio growth. As I noted last quarter, we continue to generate non-interest income through sales of high quality performing loans, though at a lesser rate than in the previous quarters as we elected to retain more of our loan originations in portfolio. Improved deposit growth during the third calendar quarter of 2019, in large part due to the continued success of our new Flushing branch coupled with deposits acquired from CFSB, allowed us to again retain a greater portion of our new loan production on the Company’s balance sheet. 

Mr. Puorro also noted, “Growth in shareholder value is our number one priority at Hanover Bancorp. This hallmark of our success continues to be reflected by robust growth in tangible book value per share which increased by $1.78, or 11.8%, to $16.92 per share at September 30, 2019 versus the comparable year ago date.”

Excluding merger-related and other non-recurring charges of $856 thousand, the Company reported record core operating net income of $8.7 million in the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019, an increase of 55.0% from core operating net income of $5.6 million in the prior year period. Core operating earnings per diluted common share were $2.22 and $1.66 in 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Balance Sheet Growth

At September 30, 2019, the Company’s balance sheet reflected the acquisition of Chinatown Federal Savings Bank. Total assets for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 amounted to a record $848.8 million, an increase of 30.6% from the comparable 2018 date. The year-over-year balance sheet growth was funded by growth in total deposits (up $184.1 million) and stockholders’ equity (up $17.7 million).

Total deposits at September 30, 2019 increased by 39.5% to a record $650.3 million when compared to September 30, 2018, the result of significant growth in core (Demand, N.O.W., Savings and Money Market) deposits (up $89.7 million). Management also continues to utilize its Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) borrowing capacity to enhance both the Bank’s liquidity position and its interest rate risk profile. FHLB borrowings are used selectively to supplement management’s ongoing effort to build low cost core deposit balances through relationship banking at each of its branch locations. Total borrowings at September 30, 2019 were $100.7 million with a weighted average rate and term of 1.88% and 15 months, respectively. At September 30, 2019, the Bank had $36.7 million of additional borrowing capacity from the FHLB.

Stockholders’ equity increased by $17.7 million to $72.0 million at September 30, 2019 from the comparable 2018 date resulting in an 11.8% increase in tangible book value per share over the past twelve months to $16.92 at September 30, 2019.  The Company’s executive management team and Board of Directors remain focused on continued enhancement of shareholder value through prudent asset growth, effective expense management and the development of long-term customer relationships in its primary markets.  Insiders have made significant investments of their own capital into Hanover Bancorp, Inc. Insider ownership represented approximately 28% of total shares outstanding at September 30, 2019.

The Company’s average cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased to 2.14% for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, from 1.84% a year ago and declined from 2.16% on a linked quarter basis.  Partially offsetting the increase in the Company’s average cost of interest-bearing liabilities from the September 2018 quarter was a nine basis point improvement in the average yield on interest-earning assets to 5.05% during the third quarter of 2019, primarily driven by higher average loan yields (up 24 basis points in 2019) resulting in part from a continued shift in the loan portfolio mix to a reduced reliance on lower-yielding multi-family credits in 2019.

Strong Loan Portfolio and Excellent Asset Quality

For the twelve months ended September 30, 2019, the Bank’s loan portfolio, net of sales, grew by $161.1 million, or 28.8%, with the growth due to a combination of organic growth and loans acquired in the CFSB transaction.  Organic loan growth was concentrated primarily in adjustable-rate two-to-four family residential loans. Management continues to employ a strategy of concentrating its loan growth in these products with shorter average durations, which provides the Bank with traditionally safe credit quality at acceptable credit spreads, greater liquidity and an enhanced interest-rate-risk profile. Over the past year, originations of our niche adjustable-rate residential product amounted to $247 million with an average loan balance of approximately $546 thousand and a weighted average loan-to-value ratio of 59%. At September 30, 2019, the Company’s residential loan portfolio amounted to $464.6 million, with an average loan balance of $407 thousand and a weighted average loan-to-value ratio of 53%. Commercial real estate loans totaled $248.0 million at September 30, 2019, with an average loan balance of $694 thousand and a weighted average loan-to-value ratio of 52%. The Company’s commercial real estate concentration ratio was 265% of capital at September 30, 2019 versus 240% of capital at the comparable 2018 date.

Through its significant asset generation capabilities, the Bank has been able to generate additional income by strategically originating and selling its primary lending products to other financial institutions at premiums, while also retaining servicing rights in some sales. The Bank expects that it will continue to originate loans, for its own portfolio and for sale, which will result in continued growth in interest income while also realizing gains on sale of loans to others and recording servicing income. During the quarter ended September 30, 2019, the Company sold $25.8 million in performing loans and recorded gains on the sale of loans held-for-sale of $818 thousand versus gains of $918 thousand in the quarter ended June 30, 2019 and gains of $878 thousand in the quarter ended September 30, 2018.  During the twelve months ended September 30, 2019, the Company sold $196.1 million in performing loans held-for-sale and recorded cumulative gains of $4.4 million.

The Bank’s asset quality ratios continue to remain strong and among the best in its peer group of community banks. At September 30, 2019, the Company reported $2.2 million in non-performing loans which represented 0.31% of total loans outstanding. During the third calendar quarter of 2019, the Bank did not record a provision for loan losses expense.  The September 30, 2019 allowance for loan losses balance was $7.1 million versus $6.5 million a year ago. The allowance for loan losses as a percent of total loans was 0.99% at September 30, 2019 versus 1.16% at June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018. The allowance for loan losses as a percent of total originated loans was 1.13% at September 30, 2019.

Net Interest Margin

The Bank’s net interest margin declined to 3.24% during the third calendar quarter of 2019, versus 3.33% in the comparable 2018 quarter but expanded from 3.19% in the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The nine basis point decrease in the Bank’s net interest margin versus 2018 was primarily attributable to a 30 basis point increase in the yield on average interest-bearing liabilities to 2.14% from 1.84% a year ago.  The higher cost of funds in 2019 was the result of significant competition for deposits in the Company’s market area, principally for certificates of deposit, accompanied by a shift in the Company’s deposit mix to a greater concentration of high yield money market accounts. Also contributing to margin compression in the third quarter was an increase in lower-yielding average interest-bearing cash on the balance sheet (up $40.8 million) resulting from a combination of loan sales, deposits generated at the new Flushing branch and liquidity from the CFSB acquisition. Partially offsetting the negative impact of the foregoing factors, the average rate on total interest-earning assets improved by nine basis points to 5.05% in the third quarter of 2019 versus the comparable 2018 period. This improvement in yield was largely the result of a 24 basis point increase in the average loan yield to 5.38% in 2019. Year-over-year growth in average core deposits versus the quarter ended September 30, 2018, coupled with an increase in average stockholders’ equity (up $20.9 million), partially mitigated the higher cost of funds in the third quarter.

Operating Efficiency Ratio

The Bank’s GAAP operating efficiency ratio was 71.3% in the third calendar quarter of 2019 versus 52.5% a year ago.  The third quarter 2019 core operating efficiency ratio, which excludes merger-related charges, was 63.4%. 

Management Departures

Separately, the Company also announced that Messrs. Kenneth Sapanski and Robert Marrali, Chief Credit Officer and Chief Lending Officer of the Bank, respectively, are no longer with the Bank.
