Board Announces Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.03 per Share

PORT ANGELES, Wash.--()--First Northwest Bancorp (Nasdaq: FNWB) (“Company”), the holding company for First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Port Angeles (“Bank”), announced its operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The Company reported net income of $2.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, and net income of $1.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Company reported net income of $4.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The Company also announced today that the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.03 per common share outstanding, payable on September 6, 2019, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 23, 2019.

Larry Hueth, President and CEO, commented, "We are pleased with quarter and year-to-date earnings generated during this challenging interest rate environment. The modest reduction in deposit and loan balances during the quarter reflected our efforts to apply greater pricing discipline, focusing on improved earnings over growth. Asset quality remains solid at this stage of the economic cycle. Our forward focus will be to monitor the economy for signs of weakness while we strive to shift the earning asset mix without compromising asset quality. We continue our efforts to manage operating expenses and capital levels to improve our efficiency ratio, earnings per share, and return on equity in order to attain performance levels commensurate with our public company peers."

Quarter highlights (at or for the quarter ended June 30, 2019)

  • Net income decreased $128,000, or 5.8%, to $2.1 million compared to $2.2 million for the linked quarter and increased $553,000, or 36.2%, compared to $1.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018;
  • Diluted earnings per share decreased $(0.01) to $0.21 from the linked quarter and increased $0.06 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018;
  • Loans receivable decreased $9.2 million during the current quarter, primarily due to early payoffs in commercial loans, and increased $52.6 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018, primarily due to growth in auto, commercial real estate, and construction and land loans;
  • Deposits decreased $19.5 million during the current quarter primarily due to a decrease in public fund deposits and increased $39.9 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018, due to continued efforts to maintain, grow, and attract deposit relationships in this competitive rate environment;
  • The Company repurchased 63,000 shares of common stock at an average price of $16.17 per share for a total of $1.0 million during the quarter under the 2017 Stock Repurchase Plan approved in September 2017.

Balance Sheet Review

During the quarter ended June 30, 2019, total assets decreased $21.1 million to $1.3 billion, primarily due to decreases in loans receivable and investment securities. Total assets increased $54.5 million from June 30, 2018, mainly due to loan growth. Commensurate with loan and investment balances, deposits and borrowings decreased over the most recent quarter and increased as compared to 2018.

Investment securities decreased $13.5 million during the quarter to $288.0 million, due to a security sale, a security call, and normal repayment activity. There were no purchases of securities during the quarter. U.S. government agency issued mortgage-backed securities ("MBS agency") comprised the largest portion of our investment portfolio at 57.6%, and totaled $166.0 million at June 30, 2019, while other investment securities totaled $112.3 million at quarter end. The estimated average life of the total investment securities portfolio declined to 4.6 years at June 30, 2019, from 4.7 years at March 31, 2019, while the average repricing term declined to approximately 3.3 years from 3.5 years over the same period.

Total loans, excluding loans held for sale, decreased $9.9 million to $879.1 million at June 30, 2019, from $888.9 million at March 31, 2019. The decrease during the quarter was mainly attributable to a decrease in multi-family, one- to four-family, and commercial business loans of $13.1 million, $6.9 million, and $3.4 million, respectively, partially offset by an increase in the balance of auto and other consumer loans of $13.5 million. There were $38.7 million in undisbursed construction loan commitments at June 30, 2019, compared to $42.3 million at March 31, 2019, a decrease of $3.6 million, resulting from declines in commitments to lend on commercial construction projects which reflects a slowing of commercial construction and increased competition for quality construction loans within the markets we serve. Also affecting the balance of construction loans was the impact of completed projects converting to permanent financing. We continue to grow the auto loan portfolio through our indirect lending and specialty auto loan purchasing programs, which was the main contributor to the increase in auto and other consumer loans. Compared to June 30, 2018, total loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $50.8 million, attributable to increases and decreases within varying categories of loans as shown in the following table.

Other assets decreased $784,000 during the current quarter to $8.2 million at June 30, 2019.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2019, total liabilities decreased $24.1 million to $1.1 billion, primarily the result of a decrease in deposits of $19.5 million to $933.3 million at June 30, 2019, from $952.8 million at March 31, 2019. Deposit balance decreases were mainly the result of decreases of $14.7 million in money market accounts and $8.0 million in lower cost transaction accounts. These decreases were partially offset by an $898,000 increase in savings account balances as a result of a promotional product offering. In addition, certificates of deposit increased $2.3 million. During the quarter, we began actively utilizing brokered certificates of deposit ("brokered CDs") as an additional funding source in order to manage our cost of funds more effectively, reduce our reliance on public funds deposits, and become more selective when competing on rate. At June 30, 2019, we had $13.7 million in brokered CDs included in our balance of certificates of deposit.

Total liabilities increased $51.0 million over the last year, mainly attributable to growth in deposits of $39.9 million and an increase in borrowings of $5.1 million. Deposit increases were primarily the result of continuing efforts to expand commercial and consumer deposit relationships in all markets. Other liabilities increased during the current quarter mainly as a result of implementing the new Lease accounting standard and an increase in borrower funds held for one- to four-family mortgage loan construction projects.

Total shareholders' equity increased $3.0 million during the quarter to $176.4 million at June 30, 2019, mainly the result of a $1.8 million increase in value of our available-for-sale securities portfolio and net income of $2.1 million, partially offsetting the $1.0 million decrease from the repurchase of shares of common stock during the quarter.

Operating Results

Net income decreased $128,000 to $2.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to net income of $2.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, mainly due to an increase in noninterest expense of $472,000, partially offset by an increase in noninterest income of $392,000. Net income increased $553,000 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018, primarily due to an increase in noninterest income of $398,000 and a $277,000 increase in net interest income after provision for loan losses. Net income increased $1.2 million to $4.3 million for six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, as we focused on increasing our net interest income, managed our expenses, and increased our collection of fees on loans and deposits.

Net interest income after the provision for loan losses decreased $64,000 to $9.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, mainly due to an increase in interest expense of $190,000 in excess of the increase in interest income of $46,000 and a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $80,000. Net interest income after the provision for loan losses increased compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018, mainly due to an increase in interest and fees on loans receivable of $1.1 million coupled with a reduction in the provision for loan losses of $140,000, partially offset by an increase in deposit interest expense of $943,000.

Interest expense increased during the most recent quarter as a result of competing for deposits at higher rates coupled with increases in the cost of FHLB borrowings. The increase in interest expense year over year was mainly due to the increase in the average balance of, and rates paid on, customer deposits also coupled with an increase in the cost of FHLB borrowings.

The net interest margin decreased six basis points to 3.10% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to 3.16% for the prior quarter ended March 31, 2019, and decreased twelve basis points from 3.22% for the same period in 2018. We continued to see margin compression during the most recent quarter as the rise in our cost of funds outpaced increased yields on loans and other interest-earning assets in our portfolio. We may continue to see margin compression due to a continued flat to inverted yield curve as well as competitive pressures as financial institutions strive to attract and retain quality loans and deposits.

Noninterest income increased to $1.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to the prior quarter ended March 31, 2019, due primarily to an increase in loan and deposit service fees collected for early commercial loan payoffs. Noninterest income increased, compared to $1.4 million for the same quarter in 2018, also as a result of an increase in loan and deposit service fees collected for early commercial loan payoffs as well as an the implementation of new deposit products and fees during the third quarter 2018.

Noninterest expense increased $472,000 to $8.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $7.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, and decreased $26,000 compared to $8.3 million for the same quarter in 2018.

Capital Ratios and Credit Quality

The Company and the Bank continue to maintain capital levels in excess of the applicable regulatory requirements and the Bank was categorized as “well-capitalized” at June 30, 2019.

Nonperforming loans decreased $315,000 during the quarter ended June 30, 2019, to $1.3 million, mainly due to a few one- to four-family loans which returned to performing status. The ratio of nonperforming loans to total loans was 0.1% at June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, and 0.3% at June 30, 2018, due to the growth in the loan portfolio over the last twelve months combined with workout activity. The percentage of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans increased to 753.8% at June 30, 2019, from 607.7% at March 31, 2019, and 450.2% at June 30, 2018, for the same reasons. Classified loans decreased $327,000 during the current quarter to $3.1 million at June 30, 2019, reflecting risk rating upgrades in one- to four-family loans during the quarter. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.1% at both June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans during the quarter remained stable due to continued overall good asset quality.
