Friday, 30. October 2020 22:00

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind., Oct. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Savings Financial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSFG - news) (the "Company"), the holding company for First Savings Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $33.4 million, or $14.04 per diluted share, for the year ended September 30, 2020 compared to net income of $16.2 million, or $6.82 per diluted share, for the year ended September 30, 2019, resulting in an increase of 106% on a per share basis.

Commenting on the Company’s performance, Larry W. Myers, President and CEO stated: “We are very pleased with another outstanding quarter and fiscal year, including record earnings and asset growth for the year, resiliency of asset quality during a challenging environment, stability of the net interest margin, significant increase in stockholders’ equity, and substantial increase in shareholder value. The core bank and ancillary business lines continue to perform exceptionally well and generate meaningful returns for our shareholders. I continue to have confidence that the Company is well-positioned to thrive during what is otherwise a very challenging banking environment and I continue to be very proud of our Company and staff.”

COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed, and continues to place, significant health, economic and other major hardships throughout the communities we serve, the United States and the entire world. The Company has implemented a number of procedures in response to the pandemic to support the safety and well-being of our customers, employees, and communities:

  • Following the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control and local governments, we have updated our branch operating procedures. While our branches have remained open, the lobbies were temporarily closed and transactions were being conducted through drive-up windows or by appointment. Our branches have returned to pre-pandemic service levels, but have implemented safety precautions, including use of personal protective equipment (“PPE”) (where and when prudent), enhanced daily cleaning and instructions to maintain appropriate social distancing. We also actively encourage customers to utilize PPE and alternative banking channels, such as our online and mobile banking platforms. Our customer service and retail departments remain fully staffed and available to assist customers remotely.
     
  • Our corporate and operations offices have predominately returned to pre-pandemic schedules and processes, but we have enhanced daily cleaning and instructed employees to maintain appropriate social distancing. Our employees maintain the ability to work remotely, both safely and efficiently using technology, in the event that is required or necessary.
     
  • We continue to assist customers experiencing COVID-19 related hardships by approving payment extensions or loan forbearance agreements, and by waiving or refunding certain fees. During the initial onset of COVID-19, we proactively contacted all commercial borrowers and offered uniform payment extensions or loan forbearance agreements, while requests from consumer borrowers were reviewed and approved a on case-by-case basis. Beginning on March 18, 2020 and through October 23, 2020, we had approved 199 payment extensions or loan forbearance agreements on balances of approximately $86.2 million, of which $77.7 million related to commercial real estate loans, $7.0 million related to residential real estate and consumer loans, and $1.5 million related to Small Business Administration (“SBA”) lending relationships. These payment extensions or loan forbearance agreements were generally for periods of three months and included deferment of both principal and interest. As of October 23, 2020, we had 14 loans with payment extensions or loan forbearance agreements on balances of approximately $10.9 million that were still in effect and set to expire between November 25, 2020 and April 4, 2021. Included in those 14 agreements in effect as of October 23, 2020, 10 were for second deferral periods ranging from three to six months. Of the 10 agreements in the second deferral period, 6 were commercial business and commercial real estate loans, and 4 were residential mortgage loans. Following the expiration of the initial payment extensions or loan forbearance agreements, we will entertain requests for extended periods on a case-by-case basis, which will generally include deferment of only the principal portion of payments (but both principal and interest for hotel loans) for a period of up to three months.
     
  • As a result of the passage of the CARES Act, the SBA will make six months of principal and interest payments for loans of existing SBA clients that were in “regular servicing status” (not delinquent) at March 27, 2020 and for SBA loans of new clients originated between March 27, 2020 and September 27, 2020. The aforementioned $1.5 million of SBA lending relationships that were provided payment extensions or forbearance by the Company will also receive the six months of SBA-made payments once the extension or forbearance periods have expired. In addition, the majority of the Company’s SBA clients applied for participation in the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”).
     
  • We are actively participating in the PPP and had $180.6 million of outstanding PPP loan balances as of September 30, 2020. At September 30, 2020, we had approximately $3.2 million of net deferred loan fees related to PPP loans that will be recognized over the life of the loans and as borrowers are granted forgiveness.
     
  • The leisure and hospitality industries carry a higher degree of credit risk due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on our evaluation of the allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2020, management believes sufficient reserves are in place to cover estimated losses at that date. However, as the pandemic continues, additional losses could be recognized.
     
  • The Company had outstanding loan balances to restaurants totaling $167.3 million as of September 30, 2020, of which $75.4 million is fully guaranteed by the SBA, including $74.5 million of PPP loans, and of which $82.5 million represents commercial real estate loans where the collateral property is leased to national-brand, investment-grade tenants.
     
  • The Company had outstanding loan balances to hotels totaling $17.4 million as of September 30, 2020, of which $3.7 million is fully guaranteed by the SBA, including $606,000 of PPP loans.

Management continues to closely monitor the pandemic and may take additional action to respond to the pandemic’s effects on the Company’s business as the situation continues to evolve. We cannot determine or estimate the impact on our business at this time because the length and severity of the economic downturn is not yet known. We are confident that we are well-positioned to withstand any challenges that may be presented, and we are committed to continuing to serve our customers, employees and communities.

Results of Operations for the Fiscal Years Ended September 30, 2020 and 2019

Net interest income increased $9.3 million, or 23.2%, to $49.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2020 as compared to 2019. The increase in net interest income was due to an $8.9 million increase in interest income and a $368,000 decrease in interest expense. Interest income increased due to an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets of $290.4 million, from $1.06 billion for 2019 to $1.35 billion for 2020, partially offset by a decrease in the weighted-average tax-equivalent yield, from 4.91% for 2019 to 4.52% for 2020. The decrease in the weighted-average tax-equivalent yield was due primarily to declining market rates for loans and investment securities, which is typical during periods of declining U.S. treasury yields. Interest expense decreased due to a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities, from 1.28% for 2019 to 0.96% for 2020, partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities of $252.4 million, from $849.6 million for 2019 to $1.10 billion for 2020. The decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities for the year ended September 30, 2020 was due primarily to decreasing market interest rates on deposits and FHLB borrowings, as well as the Company’s participation in the Federal Reserve Bank’s PPP Liquidity Facility (“PPPLF”), which began during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Additional details are included in the “Summarized Consolidated Average Balance Sheets” table at the end of this release.

The Company recognized $8.0 million in provision for loan losses for the year ended September 30, 2020, compared to $1.5 million in provision for loan losses recognized in 2019. Nonperforming loans, which consist of nonaccrual loans and loans over 90 days past due and still accruing interest, increased $8.4 million, from $5.2 million at September 30, 2019 to $13.6 million at September 30, 2020, of which $3.7 million was guaranteed by the SBA. The Company recognized net charge-offs of $975,000 for the year ended September 30, 2020, of which $679,000 was related to unguaranteed portions of SBA loans, compared to net charge-offs of $746,000 for the year ended September 30, 2019, of which $645,000 was related to unguaranteed portions of SBA loans. The increase in the provision for loan losses for 2020 was primarily due to increased nonperforming assets for the year, as well as changes to qualitative factors within the allowance for loan losses calculation related to economic uncertainties surrounding COVID-19.

Noninterest income increased $87.3 million for the year ended September 30, 2020 as compared to 2019. The increase was due primarily to an increase in mortgage banking income of $84.8 million. Additional details regarding the financial performance of the mortgage banking and SBA lending segments are included in the “Segmented Income Statement Information” table at the end of this release.

Noninterest expense increased $63.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2020 as compared to 2019. The increase was due primarily to increases in compensation and benefits, advertising expense and other operating expenses of $50.0 million, $4.6 million and $4.2 million, respectively. The increase in compensation and benefits expense is attributable to the addition of new employees primarily to support the growth of the Company’s mortgage banking and SBA lending activities, routine salary and benefits adjustments, and increased incentive compensation as a result of the Company’s performance. The increases in advertising expense and other operating expenses are primarily due to the mortgage banking segment.

The Company recognized income tax expense of $12.7 million for the year ended September 30, 2020, compared to $3.1 million for 2019. The effective tax rate increased from 15.4% for the year ended September 30, 2019 to 27.1% for 2020 primarily due to increases in pre-tax income and nondeductible executive compensation.

Comparison of Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020 and 2019

The Company reported net income of $15.1 million, or $6.39 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to net income of $5.3 million, or $2.24 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2019, resulting in an increase of 185% on a per share basis.

Net interest income increased $4.0 million, or 37.4%, to $14.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the same quarter in 2019. The increase in net interest income was due to a $3.3 million increase in interest income and a $732,000 decrease in interest expense. Interest income increased due to an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets of $489.8 million, from $1.13 billion for 2019 to $1.62 billion for 2020, partially offset by a decrease in the weighted-average tax-equivalent yield, from 5.00% for 2019 to 4.32% for 2020. Interest expense decreased due to a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities, from 1.35% for 2019 to 0.70% for 2020, partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities of $421.2 million, from $908.7 million for 2019 to $1.33 billion for 2020. The decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities for 2020 was due primarily to decreasing market interest rates on deposits and Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) borrowings, as well as the Company’s participation in the PPPLF previously discussed.

The Company recognized $2.8 million in provision for loan losses for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $471,000 for the comparable quarter in 2019. The Company recognized net charge-offs of $385,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, of which $326,000 was related to unguaranteed portions of SBA loans, compared to net charge-offs of $47,000 for the same quarter in 2019. The increase in the provision for loan losses for 2020 was primarily due to increased nonperforming assets as well as changes to qualitative factors within the allowance for loan losses calculation related to economic uncertainties surrounding COVID-19.

Noninterest income increased $37.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the same quarter in 2019. The increase was due primarily to an increase in mortgage banking income of $35.6 million. The increase in mortgage banking income was due to production from the secondary-market residential mortgage lending segment that commenced operations in April 2018. Additional details regarding the financial performance of the mortgage banking and SBA lending segments are included in the “Segmented Statements of Income Information” table at the end of this release.

Noninterest expense increased $22.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the same quarter in 2019. The increase was due primarily to an increase in compensation and benefits of $17.6 million. The increase in compensation and benefits expense is attributable to the addition of new employees primarily to support the growth of the Company’s mortgage banking and SBA lending activities, routine salary and benefits adjustments, and increased incentive compensation as a result of the Company’s performance.

The Company recognized income tax expense of $7.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, as compared to income tax expense of $1.4 million for 2019. The effective tax rate increased from 19.4% for the quarter ended September 20, 2019 to 31.2% for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 primarily due to increases in pre-tax income and nondeductible executive compensation.

Comparison of Financial Condition at September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019

Total assets increased $542.0 million, from $1.22 billion at September 30, 2019 to $1.76 billion at September 30, 2020. Net loans increased $279.4 million during the year ended September 30, 2020, due primarily to continued growth in the commercial business, commercial real estate and SBA loan portfolios, as well as $180.6 million in PPP loans outstanding at September 30, 2020. Residential mortgage loans held for sale and SBA loans held for sale also increased by $182.9 million and $6.5 million, respectively, during the year ended September 30, 2020 due to increased production from the mortgage banking and SBA lending segments. Total liabilities increased $505.7 million primarily due to an increase of $213.7 million in total deposits, an increase of $174.8 million in Federal Reserve PPPLF advances and an increase of $88.3 million in FHLB borrowings.

Common stockholders’ equity increased $36.2 million, from $121.1 million at September 30, 2019 to $157.3 million at September 30, 2020, due primarily to increases in retained net income and net unrealized gains on available for sale securities included in accumulated other comprehensive income of $31.9 million and $3.9 million, respectively. At September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, the Bank was considered “well-capitalized” under applicable regulatory capital guidelines.
