120 Days ago

Board Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.14 per share

SEATTLE, April 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sound Financial Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: SFBC), the holding company (the "Company") for Sound Community Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $1.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, or diluted earnings per share of $0.56, as compared to net income of $1.6 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.64 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and $1.6 million or diluted earnings per share of $0.63 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

The Company also announced today that the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend on Company common stock of $0.14 per share, payable on May 23, 2019 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 9, 2019.

"The first quarter is typically our slowest quarter for loan originations. We also sold a small portion of our one-to-four family loan portfolio resulting in a lower average loan balances than in the prior quarter," said Laurie Stewart, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank. "Deposit growth was strong during the quarter which allowed us to reduce our reliance on higher cost FHLB borrowings. We were also able to partly mitigate the rising cost of deposits by continuing to increase our non-interest bearing deposits," concluded Ms. Stewart.

Highlights for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 include:

  • Loans held-for-portfolio decreased 5.7% to $584.5 million at March 31, 2019, from $619.5 million at December 31, 2018 and increased $24.5 million or 4.4% from $560.0 million at March 31, 2018;
  • Total deposits increased 5.4% to $583.7 million at March 31, 2019, from $553.6 million at December 31, 2018 and increased 10.3% from $529.2 million at March 31, 2018, with non-interest bearing deposits increasing $2.6 million or 2.7% compared to December 31, 2018 and $14.4 million, or 17.1% compared to March 31, 2018;
  • Total borrowings decreased $59.0 million, or 70.2% to $25.0 million at March 31, 2019, from $84.0 million at December 31, 2018, and decreased $31.0 million, or 55.4% from $56.0 million at March 31, 2018;
  • Total assets decreased 2.7% to $697.6 million at March 31, 2019, from $716.7 million at December 31, 2018 and increased 5.8% from $659.5 million at March 31, 2018;
  • Net interest income decreased 3.6% to $7.1 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2019, from $7.2 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and increased 8.7%, from $6.4 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018 ;
  • Net interest margin ("NIM") was 4.13% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to 4.23% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and 4.29% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018; and
  • We recorded a recapture from the allowance for loan losses of $200,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to a provision for loan losses of $25,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and $100,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

The Bank continued to maintain capital levels in excess of the regulatory requirements and was categorized as "well-capitalized" at March 31, 2019.

Operating Results

Net interest income decreased $258,000, or 3.6%, to $7.0 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $7.2 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and increased $562,000, or 8.7%, from $6.5 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily a result of lower average loan balance and loan yields as a result of one-to-four family loan sales of $16.2 million during the period combined with higher interest expense. The change from the comparable period one year ago was primarily a result of increased interest income on loans due to both higher average balances and loan yields, partially offset by increased interest expense.

Interest income decreased $175,000, or 2.0%, to $8.8 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $8.9 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and increased $1.3 million, or 17.8%, compared to $7.5 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Interest income on loans decreased $191,000, or 2.2%, to $8.4 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $8.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, primarily due to lower average loan balances. The increase in interest income on loans compared to the same quarter one year ago was due to higher average loan balances and average loan yields. The average loans held-for-portfolio balance was $612.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $621.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, and $549.7 million for quarter ended March 31, 2018. The average yield on loans held-for-portfolio was 5.46% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, down slightly from 5.50% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and up 23 basis points from 5.23% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Interest income on the investment portfolio increased $168,000, or 68.3%, to $414,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 due to the rise in market interest rates during the last year compared to March 31, 2018, and increased $16,000 from the quarter ended December 31, 2008.

Interest expense increased $83,000, or 4.9%, to $1.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $1.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and increased $761,000, or 74.4%, compared to $1.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The increase from the prior quarter was a result of the higher weighted-average cost of deposits as well as higher average deposit balances. The weight average cost of deposits increased to 1.02% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, up 18 basis points from 0.84% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The average deposit balance was $574.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $558.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

The interest expense increase from the comparable period a year ago was primarily due to increases in average balances and cost of deposits and Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") borrowings. Interest expense on FHLB borrowings increased $105,000, or 49.3%, to $318,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to a year ago, due to a $4.8 million, or 9.8% increase in the average balance of FHLB borrowings to $54.1 million. The average rate paid on FHLB borrowings increased to 2.35% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, up 62 basis points from 1.73% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Interest expense on deposits increased $656,000, or 81.0%, to $1.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to a year ago, driven by an increase of $37.0 million, or 8.4% in the average balance of interest-bearing deposits. The average rate paid on deposits increased to 1.02% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, up 39 basis points from 0.63% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

Net interest margin decreased to 4.13% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to 4.23% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and 4.29% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily the result of lower average loan balances. The decrease compared to one year ago period was primarily due to higher funding costs as interest rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities increased more rapidly than yields earned on interest-earning assets.

We recorded a recapture from the allowance for loan losses of $200,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to a provision for loan losses of $25,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and $100,000 provision for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The recapture in the current quarter was primarily the result of the $16.2 million one-to-four family loan sale during the first quarter of 2019, coupled with continued strong credit quality, including net recoveries of $3,000.

Noninterest income increased $148,000, or 17.2%, to $1.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $860,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and decreased $125,000, or 11.0%, from $1.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The increase from the sequential quarter was primarily a result of gain on sale of loans of $535,000 during the quarter, partially offset by a $197,000 decrease in mortgage servicing income. The decrease from the same period a year ago primarily was a result of a decrease of $302,000 in mortgage servicing income, partially offset by a $161,000 increase in net gain on sale of loans and a $29,000 increase in bank-owned life insurance income.

Noninterest expense increased $280,000, or 4.6%, to $6.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $6.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and increased $1.0 million, or 17.7%, from $5.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The increase from the quarter ended December 31, 2018 was primarily a result salaries and benefits expense increasing $387,000 during the quarter, partially offset by a decrease in data processing and operations expense. The increase in salaries and benefits was attributed to normal year-end salary increases and the yearly bonus program, partially offset by decreases in quarterly accrued vacation and sick expense during current quarter.

Noninterest expense increased $960,000, or 17.7%, to $6.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $5.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  The increases in noninterest expense from the quarter ended March 31, 2018 were primarily due to increases of $498,000 in salaries and benefits and $395,000 in operations expense. The increase in salaries and benefits expense were due to the same reasons discussed above for the sequential quarter. Operations expense increased $395,000 from a year ago, primarily due to an increase in legal fees, professional fees and loan related expenses.

The efficiency ratio for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was 79.97%, compared to 75.43% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and 71.89% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The weakening of the efficiency ratio compared to prior quarter and a year ago was primarily due to higher noninterest expense, combined with lower noninterest income.

Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management and Credit Quality

Total assets at March 31, 2019 were $697.6 million, compared to $716.7 million at December 31, 2018 and $659.5 million at March 31, 2018. The decrease in assets from sequential quarter was primarily due to a lower balance of loans held-for-portfolio as a result of a $16.2 million one-to-four family loan sale during the quarter and decline in FHLB stock, partially offset by higher cash and cash equivalents and the capitalization of the right of use assets in the first quarter of 2019 in accordance with our implementation of new lease accounting guidance. The increase from one year ago was primarily a result of the right of use assets of $8.1 million recorded, a higher balance in loans held-for-portfolio and cash balances which increased $24.5 million and $7.8 million, respectively, partially offset by a decrease in FHLB stock. FHLB stock decreased $2.3 million to $1.9 million at March 31, 2019, from $4.1 million at December 31, 2018 and decreased $1.2 million, from $3.0 million at March 31, 2018, as a result of reduced borrowing needs. The adoption of accounting guidance for leases (“ASU 2016-02”) in 2019 required the Company to recognize right of use lease assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet.

Cash and cash equivalents increased $10.7 million, or 17.4%, to $72.5 million at March 31, 2019, compared to $61.8 million at December 31, 2018 and increased $7.8 million, or 12.1%, compared to $64.7 million at March 31, 2018. The increase from the prior quarter and one year ago was a result of the loan sale at quarter end.

Loans held-for-portfolio decreased to $584.5 million at March 31, 2019, compared to $619.5 million at December 31, 2018 and increased from $560.0 million at March 31, 2018. The largest decreases in the loan portfolio compared to the prior quarter were in one-to-four family, commercial and multifamily real estate and commercial business loan portfolios. The one-to-four family loan portfolio decreased $18.4 million, or 10.8%, to $151.4 million compared to the prior quarter primarily as a result of the sale of $16.2 million of one-to-four family loans held in portfolio during the quarter. The commercial and multifamily real estate portfolio decreased $7.2 million, or 2.9%, to $245.4 million and the commercial business loan portfolio decreased $6.8 million, or 17.4%, to $32.0 million.  All loan categories experienced an increase compared to the year ago quarter, other than one-to-four family, home equity and commercial business. The commercial and multifamily real estate loan portfolio increased $24.2 million, or 10.9%, to $245.4 million, the construction and land loan portfolio increased $5.6 million, or 9.2%, to $66.4 million, and the consumer loan  portfolio increased $14.6 million, or 28.1%, to $66.7 million, with the largest increase in consumer loans coming from floating homes loans, which increased $9.9 million, or 34.0%, to $39.0 million. The increases were partially offset by decreases of $10.9 million in the one-to-four family, $5.8 million in the commercial business and $3.2 million in home equity loan portfolios. At March 31, 2019, commercial and multifamily real estate loans accounted for approximately 41.8% of total loans and one-to-four family loans, including home equity loans accounted for approximately 30.0% of total loans. Consumer loans, consisting of manufactured homes, floating homes, and other consumer loans accounted for approximately 11.4% of total loans at that date. Construction and land loans accounted for approximately 11.3% of total loans and commercial business loans accounted for approximately 5.5% of total loans at March 31, 2019.

Deposits increased $30.1 million, or 5.4%, to $583.7 million at March 31, 2019, compared to $553.6 million at December 31, 2018 and increased $54.5 million, or 10.3%, compared to $529.2 million at March 31, 2018. The increase in deposits compared to the prior quarter and a year ago was due to primarily to increases in certificates of deposit. We continue our efforts to increase non-interest bearing deposits, which increased $2.6 million, or 2.7%, to $98.6 million at March 31, 2019, compared to $96.1 million at December 31, 2018 and increased $14.4 million, or 17.1% from $84.3 million at March 31, 2018. FHLB borrowings decreased to $25.0 million at March 31, 2019, compared to $84.0 million at December 31, 2018 and $56.0 million at March 31, 2018. We utilized borrowings to supplement our deposits to support loan growth over the past year.

Nonperforming assets ("NPAs"), which are comprised of non-accrual loans, nonperforming troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs"), other real estate owned ("OREO") and other repossessed assets increased $411,000 or 12.7% to $3.7 million at March 31, 2019, from $3.2 million at December 31, 2018 and increased $1.1 million or 42.5% from $2.6 million at March 31, 2018. NPAs to total assets were 0.52%, 0.45% and 0.39% at March 31, 2019, December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2018, respectively.

The following table summarizes the allowance for loan losses (dollars in thousands, unaudited):

    For the Quarter Ended:
    March 31, 2019   December 31, 2018   March 31, 2018
Allowance for Loan Losses            
Balance at beginning of period   $ 5,774     $ 5,748     $ 5,241  
(Recapture) provision for loan losses during the period   (200 )   25     100  
Net recoveries (charge-offs) during the period   3     1     (13 )
Balance at end of period   $ 5,577     $ 5,774     $ 5,328  
Allowance for loan losses to total loans   0.95 %   0.93 %   0.95 %
Allowance for loan losses to total nonperforming loans   215.83 %   216.50 %   276.78 %

The decrease in the allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2019, compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to a recapture from the allowance for loan losses of $200,000 during the period.  The recapture in the current quarter was primarily the result of the $16.2 million one-to-four family loan sale during the first quarter of 2019, coupled with continued strong credit quality. The increase in the allowance for loan losses compared to the same period a year ago was due to the increases in the balance of the loan portfolio. Net loan recoveries during the first quarter of 2019 totaled $3,000 compared to net recoveries of $1,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and net charge-offs of $13,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

The allowance for loan losses to total loans held-for-portfolio increased to 0.95% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to 0.93% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and remained unchanged from 0.95% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of nonperforming loans decreased to 215.8% at March 31, 2019, compared to 216.5% at December 31, 2018 and 276.8% at March 31, 2018.
