Honolulu, Hawaii, January 28, 2021 - Territorial Bancorp Inc. (NASDAQ: TBNK) (the ‘'Company”), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $5.52 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2020.

 

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 February 25, 2021 to stockholders of record as of February 11, 2021.

 

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “2020 has been a very challenging year for the residents and businesses in Hawaii. The decline in interest rates that occurred during the pandemic have decreased asset yields and created challenges in the banking industry. Despite these obstacles, we had a successful year, primarily because of our asset quality and strong capital position.”

 

Interest Income

 

Net interest income decreased to $13.82 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 from $14.49 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. Total interest income was $16.04 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 compared to $18.80 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The $2.76 million decrease in total interest income is primarily due to a $1.80 million decrease in interest earned on loans and a $915,000 decrease in interest income on investment securities. The decline in interest income on loans was due to a 12 basis point decrease in the average yield on loans receivable and a $138.25 million decrease in the average loan balance. The decrease in the average yield on loans occurred with the payoff of higher yielding loans and the addition of new loans with lower yields to the loan portfolio. The decrease in the average loan balance occurred as loan repayments, sales and loan securitization transactions exceeded the origination of new loans. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company securitized $9.43 million of mortgage loans into mortgage-backed securities to increase liquidity. The loan securitization transaction increased investment securities and lowered loans receivable. The decrease in interest income on investment securities occurred because of an 18 basis point decrease in the average yield and a $104.11 million decrease in the average balance of investment securities. The decrease in the average securities yield occurred as higher yielding securities were paid-off. The decline in the average balance of investment securities occurred as security repayments and the sale of securities exceeded the amount of loans securitized into mortgage-back securities.

 

 

 

 

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

 

Total interest expense decreased to $2.22 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 from $4.31 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. Interest expense on deposits decreased by $1.72 million to $1.63 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 from $3.34 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The decrease in interest expense on deposits was primarily due to a 44 basis point decrease in the average cost of deposits. The decrease in the average cost of deposits occurred as the interest rates offered on deposits were lowered in response to the decline in market interest rates. Interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances decreased by $373,000 to $548,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2020 from $921,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The decrease in interest expense on FHLB advances resulted from a 77 basis point decrease in the average cost of advances. The decrease in the average cost of advances occurred as the Company restructured $82.00 million of FHLB advances at lower interest rates. During the three months ended December 31, 2020, and December 31, 2019, loan loss provisions of $679,000 and $4,000, respectively, were reversed. The reversal of the loan loss provision during the three months ended December 31, 2020 occurred primarily because of a decrease in the size of the mortgage loan portfolio and a decrease in Hawaii’s unemployment rate that lowered the allowance for loan losses.

 

Noninterest Income

 

Noninterest income was $2.47 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 compared to $1.02 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The increase in noninterest income was primarily due to a $462,000 increase in the gain on sale of investment securities, a $436,000 increase in service fees on loans and deposit accounts and a $310,000 increase in the gain on sale of loans. The increase in service fees on loans occurred because of growth in broker loan fee income.

 

Noninterest Expense

 

Noninterest expense was $9.53 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 compared to $9.32 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to a $194,000 increase in equipment expenses and a $140,000 increase in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) premiums. The increase in equipment expenses was primarily due to a rise in data processing expenses, and repairs and maintenance expenses. FDIC premiums rose from $0 for the three months ended December 31, 2019 to $140,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The increase in insurance premiums occurred because the Company received a credit in 2019 when the FDIC insurance fund was over-capitalized. The increase in equipment and federal deposit insurance expenses was partially offset by a $131,000 decrease in salary and benefits expense. The decrease in salaries and benefits expense occurred primarily because of an increase in the deferred salary expenses for originating new loans.

 

 

 

 

Income Taxes

 

Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $1.91 million compared to $1.15 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The increase in income tax expense was due to a $1.24 million increase in income before taxes during the three months ended December 31, 2020 and a $402,000 tax benefit that was recorded in the three months ended December 31, 2019. The $402,000 tax benefit occurred when the Company filed an amended 2017 corporate income tax return which included an increase in depreciation expense. The additional depreciation expense resulted from a study that the Company conducted which reduced the asset lives used to calculate depreciation. The Company filed an amended tax return and was able to deduct the increase in depreciation expense at the 2017 federal corporate tax rate of 35.00% rather than the current 21.00% federal corporate tax rate.

 

Assets and Equity

 

Total assets were $2.11 billion at December 31, 2020 and $2.09 billion at December 31, 2019. Loans receivable decreased by $177.8 million to $1.41 billion at December 31, 2020 from $1.58 billion at December 31, 2019. The decrease in loans receivable occurred as loan repayments, sales and loans securitized into mortgage-backed securities exceeded new loan originations. Investment securities decreased by $121.31 million to $251.20 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease in investment securities occurred because principal repayments and the sale of securities exceeded the amount of securities created in the loan securitization transaction. Deposits increased to $1.66 billion at December 31, 2020 from $1.63 billion at December 31, 2019. Cash and cash equivalents increased to $363.54 million at December 31, 2020 from $44.81 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily due to increases in loan and security repayments and deposits. Advances from the FHLB decreased by $15.00 million to $141.00 million at December 31, 2020 as maturing advances were paid off. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $248.71 million at December 31, 2020 from $243.89 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in stockholders’ equity occurred as the Company’s net income, the increase in capital from the exercise of stock options and the allocation of ESOP shares exceeded dividends paid to shareholders and share repurchases.

 

Capital Management

 

Through December 31, 2020, the Company repurchased 3,705,677 shares in all of its share repurchase programs. The shares repurchased represent 30.29% of the total shares issued in its initial public offering. The Company completed its ninth share repurchase program in 2020. Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the Company has not announced a new share repurchase program.

 

 

 

 

Asset Quality

 

The Company had $240,000 of delinquent mortgage loans 90 days or more past due at December 31, 2020 compared to no delinquent mortgage loans 90 days or more past due at December 31, 2019. Delinquent loans exclude loans which are receiving loan payment deferrals because of COVID-19. Non-performing assets totaled $4.41 million at December 31, 2020 compared to $736,000 at December 31, 2019. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 0.21% at December 31, 2020 and 0.04% at December 31, 2019. The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2020 was $4.26 million and represented 0.30% of total loans compared to $2.71 million and 0.17% of total loans as of December 31. 2019.

 

COVID-19

 

The State of Hawaii was severely impacted by COVID-19. In 2020, the State of Hawaii mandated the temporary closure of non-essential businesses, implemented a 14-day quarantine for visitors arriving in the state and imposed a temporary stay-at-home mandate. With tourism being the largest sector of Hawaii’s economy, the reduction in visitors to the state and the stay-at-home mandate resulted in the layoff and furlough of workers and significantly increased the state’s unemployment rate compared to the pre-pandemic unemployment rate. Beginning in October 2020, visitors to Hawaii are not subject to the 14-day quarantine if they tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours prior to departing for Hawaii.

 

To assist customers during COVID-19, the Company has:

 ·Provided payment deferrals to borrowers who have experienced financial difficulties because of COVID-19;

·Originated 23 Paycheck Protection Program loans totaling $1.69 million; and
·Waived early withdrawal penalties on certificates of deposit.

 

To qualify for the Bank’s payment deferral program, a borrower’s financial difficulties must be related to COVID-19 and the loan must not have been more than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019. In the loan payment deferral program, borrowers are allowed to defer loan payments for six months. For residential mortgage loans, the deferred interest will be payable within five years after the end of six-month deferral period. The term of the loan is extended by six months to allow the loan to fully amortize. During the payment deferral period, the borrowers are required to continue to make their escrow payments which include insurance and property tax payments. Through December 31, 2020, 213 of the 215 mortgage loans in the payment deferral program made their escrow payments.

 

As of December 31, 2020, the Company had outstanding loan payment deferrals on $130.8 million of loans, representing 9.3% of total loans receivable as of December 31, 2020. $126.3 million of these loan payment deferrals are on one-to-four family residential mortgage loans, which represent 9.0% of the total loans receivable as of December 31, 2020. The Company believes these loans are currently well-secured as the ratio of the current loan balance to the current tax-assessed value of the property securing these mortgage loans averages 54.9%. One-to-four family residential mortgage loans represent 97.0% of the total loan portfolio balance with a ratio of the current loan balance to the current tax-assessed value of the property securing these loans averaging 46.0%. The Company also had outstanding loan payment deferrals on $4.5 million of commercial mortgage, commercial and industrial and home equity lines of credit loans, which represent 0.3% of the total balance of loans receivable as of December 31, 2020. The total amount of loans in the payment deferral program has decreased from $142.2 million at September 30, 2020 to $130.8 million at December 31, 2020.

 

 

 

 

As of December 31, 2020, $92.2 million or 73.1% of the total mortgage loans in the payment deferral program have resumed making full principal and interest payments. $23.6 million or 18.7% of the total mortgage loans in the payment deferral program are making interest only payments. $3.0 million or 2.4% of the total mortgage loans in the payment deferral program continue to make escrow-only payments. $304,000 or 0.2% of the total mortgage loans in the payment deferral program had their six-month forbearance period end and have not resumed making loan payments. As of December 31, 2020, $7.1 million or 5.6% of the total loans in the payment deferral period are still in their six-month forbearance period.

 

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President on March 27, 2020. The CARES Act provides relief to financial institutions from categorizing eligible loan modifications as troubled debt restructurings over the remaining life of the modified loan. In addition, Interagency Statements were issued on March 22, 2020 and April 7, 2020 by bank regulatory agencies to encourage financial institutions to work prudently with borrowers. The Company will be using the provisions of the CARES Act and the Interagency Statements to account for the loans receiving modifications. On December 21, 2020, the President signed legislation which extended the troubled debt restructuring relief provisions of the CARES Act to January 1, 2021.

 

During 2020, the Company has not seen a significant increase in loan delinquencies, significant changes in deposits or significant drawdowns on lines of credit. Loan delinquencies do not include loans requesting payment deferral because of COVID-19. The Company does not have any commercial loans to hotels, businesses in the transportation industry, restaurants or retail establishments.
