HONOLULU, April 28, 2022 (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 $4.71 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
The Company also announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.23 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on May 26, 2022 to stockholders of record as of May 12, 2022.
Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The first quarter of 2022 was challenging. We have been able to increase our net interest income despite these challenges. As Hawaii’s economy improves, our strong capital and asset quality will allow us to assist our customers with their banking needs. The Company intends to continue to enhance shareholder value through dividends and share repurchases.”
Net interest income increased to $13.80 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $13.21 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Total interest income was $14.96 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $15.11 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The $149,000 decrease in total interest income was primarily due to a $1.69 million decrease in interest earned on loans. The decrease in interest income on loans was partially offset by a $1.60 million increase in interest income on investment securities. The decline in interest income on loans was due to a 29 basis point decrease in the average yield on loans receivable and a $78.09 million decrease in the average loan balance. The decrease in the average yield on loans occurred because of the payoff of higher yielding loans and the addition of new lower yielding loans to the loan portfolio. The decrease in the average loan balance occurred as loan repayments and sales of loans exceeded the origination of new loans. The increase in interest income on investment securities occurred because of a $381.45 million increase in the average balance of investment securities, which was partially offset by a 57 basis point decrease in the average securities yield. The increase in the average balance of investment securities occurred as security purchases exceeded repayments and the sale of securities. The decrease in the average securities yield occurred due to the payoff of higher yielding securities and the addition of new lower yielding securities to the investment portfolio.
Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses
Total interest expense decreased to $1.15 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $1.90 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Interest expense on deposits decreased by $720,000 to $597,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $1.32 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in interest expense on deposits was primarily due to an 18 basis point decrease in the average cost of deposits. The decrease in the average cost of deposits occurred with a reduction in interest rates offered on deposits during the quarter. The Company reversed loan loss provisions of $168,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to a reversal of $913,000 of loan loss provisions for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The reversal of the loan loss provisions during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 occurred primarily because of the decreases in the size of the mortgage loan portfolio, in Hawaii’s unemployment rate and in the amount of loans in the payment deferral program, all of which contributed to the reduction in the allowance for loan losses.
Noninterest income was $1.65 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $2.24 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to a $654,000 decrease in service fees on loans and deposit accounts, a $526,000 decrease in the gain on sale of investment securities and a $402,000 decrease in the gain on the sale of loans. The decrease in service fees on loans and deposit accounts occurred primarily because of a decline in the fees earned for referring mortgage loans to other financial institutions and mortgage brokers. The decrease in the gains on sale of investment securities and loans occurred as fewer securities and mortgage loans were sold. The decreases in service fees on loan and deposit accounts and in gains on sale of investment securities and loans were partially offset by a $987,000 increase in other non-interest income which occurred when the Company received $1.03 million of proceeds on bank-owned life insurance.
Noninterest expense was $9.60 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $9.55 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Salaries and employee benefits rose by $90,000 to $5.61 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $5.52 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 primarily because of a decrease in new mortgage loan originations which lowered the deferred salary for new loan originations. Equipment expenses rose by $66,000 to $1.20 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $1.13 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 primarily because of an increase in data processing expenses. Occupancy expenses decreased by $53,000 to $1.59 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $1.65 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to a decrease in rent expense. The decrease in rent expense occurred as the Company leased new office space with lower rent. Other general and administrative expenses decreased by $59,000 to $1.05 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $1.11 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to decreases in legal expenses.
Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $1.32 million with an effective tax rate of 21.85% compared to $1.79 million with an effective tax rate of 26.32% for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in income tax expense and the effective tax rate was primarily due to a $777,000 decrease in income before taxes during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and the receipt of $1.03 million of proceeds on bank-owned life insurance that were not taxable.
Total assets were $2.13 billion at March 31, 2022 and at December 31, 2021. Loans receivable, including loans held for sale, decreased by $6.46 million at March 31, 2022. The decrease in loans receivable occurred as loan repayments and sales exceeded new loan originations. Investment securities, including available for sale securities, increased by $32.65 million to $669.09 million at March 31, 2022 from $636.44 million at December 31, 2021. The increase in investment securities occurred as the purchase of new mortgage-backed securities exceeded principal repayments. Cash and cash equivalents decreased to $65.78 million at March 31, 2022 from $99.86 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents occurred because of the purchase of investment securities. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $257.98 million at March 31, 2022 from $256.32 million at December 31, 2021. The increase in stockholders’ equity occurred primarily because the Company’s net income and the increase in capital from the allocation of ESOP shares exceeded dividends paid to shareholders and share repurchases.
During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company repurchased 45,916 of common shares. Through March 31, 2022, the Company has repurchased 3,950,366 shares in all of its share repurchase programs. The shares repurchased represent 32.29% of the total shares issued in its initial public offering. The Company intends to continue to enhance shareholder value through the use of capital to support its dividends, both regular and/or special, as well as its share repurchase program.
The Company had $244,000 of delinquent mortgage loans 90 days or more past due at March 31, 2022 and at December 31, 2021. Non-performing assets totaled $3.22 million at March 31, 2022 compared to $3.28 million at December 31, 2021. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 0.15% at March 31, 2022 and at December 31, 2021. The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2022 was $2.46 million and represented 0.19% of total loans compared to $2.67 million and 0.20% of total loans as of December 31, 2021.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $8.36 million of mortgage loans, or 0.64% of total loans receivable in its payment deferral program. In this program, the Company allowed borrowers, who experienced financial hardship because of COVID-19, to defer payments on their loans.
On $7.66 million of these loans, the Company is receiving interest and escrow payments, while $697,000 of loans are delinquent. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had $14.04 million, or 1.08% of total loans receivable, in its payment deferral program. The decrease in the amount of loans in the payment deferral program occurred as borrowers opted out of the program and repaid any deferred loan payments.
