Bank Mutual Corporation Reports Nearly 50% Increase In Net Income For The Third Quarter Of 2013

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bank Mutual Corporation (NASDAQ: BKMU) reported net income of $2.9 million or $0.06 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013, which was a 47.9% improvement over net income of $2.0 million or $0.04 per diluted share in the same quarter in 2012.  Year-to-date, Bank Mutual Corporation ("Bank Mutual") reported net income of $8.1 million or $0.17 per diluted share in 2013, which was 82.1% higher than the $4.4 million or $0.10 per diluted share reported during the same nine-month period in 2012.  The improvements in net income between these periods were due primarily to higher net loan servicing fee revenue, higher net interest income, lower net losses and expenses on foreclosed real estate, and lower federal deposit insurance premiums. These developments were partially offset by lower gains on sales of loans, higher compensation-related costs, and a larger provision for loan losses.   

David A. Baumgarten, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bank Mutual noted, "We are pleased that our quarterly earnings increased for a sixth straight quarter despite a decline in net mortgage banking revenue, which we anticipated."  Mr. Baumgarten added, "Improvements in our operating results continue to be led by increases in our net interest margin and growth in our loan portfolio." 

Bank Mutual's net interest income increased by $1.2 million or 7.6% and by $3.8 million or 8.4% during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2012.  These increases were primarily attributable to a 45 basis point improvement in Bank Mutual's net interest margin, from 2.61% during the nine months ended September 30, 2012, to 3.06% during the same period in the current year.  This improvement was due in part to an improved earning asset mix and an improved deposit funding mix between the periods.  Bank Mutual's average loans receivable (which generally have higher yields) increased by $35.7 million or 2.6% between the year-to-date periods and its average mortgage-related securities, investment securities, and overnight investments (which generally have lower yields) declined by $215.2 million or 23.0% in the aggregate between the periods.  With respect to Bank Mutual's deposit funding mix, its average checking and savings deposits (which generally have a lower interest cost or no interest cost) increased by $38.6 million or 3.9% in the aggregate between the year-to-date periods and its average certificates of deposit (which generally have a higher interest cost) declined by $255.1 million or 25.8% between the periods. 

Also contributing to the improvement in net interest margin between the year-to-date periods in 2013 and 2012 was a 35 basis point decline in the average cost of Bank Mutual's certificates of deposit, as well as Bank Mutual's repayment of $100.0 million in high-cost borrowings from the FHLB of Chicago in the third quarter of 2012.  Management anticipates that Bank Mutual's cost of certificates of deposit will continue to decline modestly in the near term as older, higher-cost certificates of deposit continue to mature and are replaced by lower cost deposits, although there can be no assurances. 

The favorable impact of the aforementioned developments on net interest income was partially offset by a $179.5 million or 7.7% decrease in average earning assets during the year-to-date period in 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.  Bank Mutual's earning assets have declined in recent periods as it has used cash flows from its mortgage-related securities portfolio to fund a decline in its certificates of deposit, as previously noted.

Bank Mutual's provision for loan losses was $707,000 in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $657,000 in the same quarter last year.  The provision for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, was $3.3 million compared to $2.4 million in the same period last year.  Bank Mutual's provision in the 2013 periods was due in part to increases in general loan loss allowances related to growth in its multi-family, commercial real estate, and commercial business loan portfolios.  Also contributing to the provision in the third quarter of 2013 was a $536,000 loss on a commercial real estate loan secured by a multi-family real estate property. 

In the 2012 periods Bank Mutual recorded loan loss provisions against a number of larger multi-family, commercial real estate, and business loan relationships.  These losses were partially offset by loss recaptures on non-performing loans that paid off during the periods, as well as recoveries of previously charged-off loans.  In addition, Bank Mutual increased its general loss allowances modestly during the year-to-date period in 2012 due primarily to growth in its loan portfolio.

Bank Mutual's non-performing loans and classified loans have trended lower in recent periods.     Although general economic, employment, and real estate conditions continue to slowly improve in Bank Mutual's markets, current conditions continue to be challenging for certain borrowers, particularly those whose loans are secured by commercial real estate or land.  As such, there can be no assurances that non-performing loans and/or classified loans will continue to trend lower in future periods or that Bank Mutual's provision for loan losses will not vary considerably in future periods. 

Service charges on deposits declined slightly during the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to the same period in 2012, but increased modestly between the nine month periods ended as of the same dates.  Bank Mutual has experienced slower growth in this revenue line item in recent periods due primarily to changes in customer spending patterns, which has resulted in lower levels of revenue from overdraft charges.  Management attributes this development to relatively slow economic growth in recent periods, which management believes has impacted customer spending habits.

Brokerage and insurance commissions were $658,000 during the third quarter of 2013, a $20,000 or 2.9% decrease from the same period in the previous year.  On a year-to-date basis, this source of revenue was $2.3 million in 2013, a $104,000 or 4.7% increase from the same period in 2012.  This revenue item consists of commissions earned on sales of tax-deferred annuities, mutual funds, and certain other securities, as well as personal and business insurance products.  Commission revenue in the 2013 year-to-date period benefited from higher sales of equity-related investments earlier in the year, which management attributes to general improvements in equity markets during that time period.  Commission revenue from this source declined, however, during the third quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in the prior year.  The 2013 periods also include modest increases in commission revenue from sales of tax-deferred annuities, which management attributes to the continued popularity of such investments in generally lower interest rate environments.

Net loan-related fees and servicing revenue was $471,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to a loss of $1.1 million in the same period of the previous year.  On a year-to-date basis, this revenue was $2.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to a loss of $2.3 million in the same period of 2012.  The following table presents the components of net loan-related fees and servicing revenue for the periods indicated:

The change in the valuation allowance that Bank Mutual maintains against its mortgage servicing rights ("MSRs") is recorded as a recovery or loss, as the case may be, in the period in which the change occurs.  Higher market interest rates for residential loans in recent periods have resulted in lower prepayment expectations on the loans underlying the MSRs, which resulted in a decrease in the valuation allowance during the three- and nine-month periods then ended.  In contrast, lower market interest rates in the 2012 periods resulted in higher prepayment expectations and an increase in the valuation allowance during those periods.  As of September 30, 2013, Bank Mutual had a $77,000 valuation allowance against MSRs with a book value of $9.0 million.  As of the same date Bank Mutual serviced $1.2 billion in loans for third-party investors compared to $1.1 billion one year ago.   

Gains on sales of loans were $794,000 in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $3.4 million in the same quarter last year.  Year-to-date, gains on sales of loans were $4.0 million in 2013 compared to $9.9 million in 2012.  Bank Mutual typically sells in the secondary market most of the fixed-rate, one- to four-family mortgage loans that it originates.  During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, sales of these loans were $51.3 million or 53.2% lower and $121.9 million or 34.5% lower than they were during the same periods in 2012, respectively.  Recent increases in market interest rates have resulted in lower originations and sales of fixed-rate, one- to four-family loans in the 2013 periods compared to the same periods in 2012.  Also contributing to the decrease in gains on sales of loans in 2013 was a decline in Bank Mutual's average gross profit margin on the sales of loans.  Management attributes this decline to the reduced burden that consumer demand has placed on the loan production capacity of the mortgage banking industry as a whole, due to a recent increase in market interest rates, which has caused gross profit margins to decrease.  If these trends continue, management anticipates that Bank Mutual's gains on sales of loans will continue to decline in the fourth quarter of 2013 and will be substantially lower in 2014 than they were in 2012 and 2013. 

During the year-to-date period in 2012 Bank Mutual recorded $543,000 in gains on sales of investments related to the sale of $20.4 million in mortgage-related securities.  Bank Mutual did not sell any securities in 2013. 

During the year-to-date period in 2012 Bank Mutual recorded $336,000 in net other-than-temporary impairment ("OTTI") losses.  These losses consisted of the credit portion of the total OTTI loss related to Bank Mutual's investment in certain private-label collateralized mortgage obligations ("CMOs") rated less than investment grade.  Bank Mutual did not have any net OTTI losses in 2013.

The increases in the cash surrender value of Bank Mutual's life insurance policies during the three and nine month periods in 2013 were $817,000 and $2.0 million, respectively.  These amounts compared to $528,000 and $1.6 million during the same periods in 2012, respectively.  These increases were caused by higher payouts associated with excess death benefits in the 2013 periods compared to the prior year periods.

Other non-interest income was $1.6 million and $4.6 million during the three and nine month periods in 2013, respectively, compared to $1.5 million and $4.5 million during the same periods in 2012, respectively.   Most of the increase in the 2013 periods was caused by fees generated from a debit card cash rewards program that Bank Mutual introduced to checking account customers in 2013.

Compensation-related expenses increased by $301,000 or 2.9% and $1.1 million or 3.4% during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2012, respectively.  These increases were due primarily to annual merit increases and increases in payroll-related taxes.    These developments were partially offset by a modest decline in employee healthcare costs due to a renegotiation of such costs with the insurance provider.

Occupancy and equipment expenses increased by $88,000 or 3.1% and $295,000 or 3.4% during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively, compared to the same periods in the prior year, respectively.  These increases were principally caused by increases in data processing costs, certain repairs and maintenance on Bank Mutual's facilities, and for the year-to-date period, increased snow removal costs earlier in 2013 compared to 2012.

Federal deposit insurance premiums were $438,000 and $1.5 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively.  These amounts compared to $831,000 and $2.5 million during the same periods in 2012, respectively.  The decrease in the 2013 periods was caused by an improvement earlier in the year in Bank Mutual's financial condition and operating results.  Under the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's ("FDIC") risk-based premium assessment system, these improvements resulted in lower deposit insurance costs for Bank Mutual in 2013. 

Net losses and expenses on foreclosed real estate were $716,000 and $2.3 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively.  These amounts compared to $1.7 million and $5.5 million in the same periods of last year, respectively.  Bank Mutual has experienced lower losses and expenses on foreclosed real estate in recent periods due to lower levels of foreclosed properties.  

Other non-interest expense increased by $70,000 or 2.8% during the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to the same period in 2012.  Year-to-date, this expense decreased by $330,000 or 4.3% in 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.  The quarterly increase was primarily the result of increased professional fees related to certain special projects during the quarter.   On a year-to-date basis, however, professional fees were substantially lower due primarily to reduced expenditures related to loan workout efforts.                

Income tax expense was $1.5 million and $1.0 million during the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and was $4.2 million and $2.1 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  Bank Mutual's effective tax rates ("ETRs") during the three-month periods in 2013 and 2012 were 34.1% and 34.8%, respectively.  The ETRs during the nine-month periods in these same years were 34.1% and 32.3%, respectively.  Bank Mutual's ETR will vary from period to period depending primarily on the impact of non-taxable revenue items, such as tax-exempt interest income and earnings from bank-owned life insurance ("BOLI").  Bank Mutual's ETR will generally be higher in periods in which these non-taxable revenue items comprise a smaller portion of pre-tax income.                                                                                  

Bank Mutual's total assets decreased by $84.9 million or 3.5% during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  During the period Bank Mutual's mortgage-related securities available-for-sale decreased by $75.4 million due primarily to regular repayments, its cash and cash equivalents decreased by $28.0 million due principally to seasonal factors, and its loans held-for-sale decreased by $8.1 million due to a higher interest rate environment.  These developments were partially offset by a $40.3 million increase in Bank Mutual's loan portfolio.  Also during the period, Bank Mutual's deposit liabilities decreased by $99.1 million and its advance payments by borrowers increased by $25.7 million, the latter due to seasonal factors.  Bank Mutual's total shareholders' equity increased from $271.9 million at December 31, 2012, to $276.2 million at September 30, 2013.         

Bank Mutual's loans receivable increased by $40.3 million or 2.9% during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  Total loans originated for portfolio were $364.7 million during this period compared to $367.3 million during the same period in 2012.   Originations of construction and development loans, which consist mostly of multi-family projects, were substantially higher in 2013 than they were in 2012.  This increase was attributable to elevated demand for multi-family properties caused by a general decline in the level of home ownership in recent periods.  The increase in the origination of these types of loans was largely offset by declines in originations of consumer loans and commercial and industrial loans in 2013 compared to the prior year.  Management attributes these declines to higher interest rates, slower economic growth and related uncertainties, and increased competition for these types of loans in its local markets. 

Bank Mutual's deposit liabilities decreased by $99.1 million or 5.3% during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  Certificates of deposit declined by $148.5 million or 18.3% during the period while core deposits, consisting of checking, savings and money market accounts, increased by $49.3 million or 4.7%.  Bank Mutual continues to closely manage the rates it offers on certificates of deposit to control its overall liquidity position, which has resulted in a decline in certificates of deposit in recent periods.  Core deposits have increased in recent periods in response to management's efforts to increase sales of such products and related services to commercial businesses, as well as efforts to focus its retail sales efforts on such products and related services.  Also contributing to the increase in core deposits in recent periods, however, is customer reaction to the low interest rate environment.  Management believes that this environment has encouraged some customers to switch to core deposits in an effort to retain flexibility in the event interest rates rise in the future. 

Bank Mutual's shareholders' equity increased from $271.9 million at December 31, 2012, to $276.2 million at September 30, 2013.  This increase was caused by net income during the period, partially offset by the payment of cash dividends of $0.07 per share to shareholders during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  Also impacting shareholders' equity during the period was a $1.0 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss primarily caused by a decline in the fair value of Bank Mutual's available-for-sale securities.  This development was the result of a recent increase in market interest rates which had an adverse impact on the fair value of Bank Mutual's available-for-sale securities.  The book value of Bank Mutual's common stock was $5.95 per share at September 30, 2013, compared to $5.87 per share at December 31, 2012.  

Bank Mutual's ratio of shareholders' equity to total assets was 11.84% at September 30, 2013, compared to 11.24% at December 31, 2012.  The increase in this ratio was caused by the reasons noted in the previous paragraph.  Also contributing was a decline in Bank Mutual's total assets during the period, as previously described.  Bank Mutual's subsidiary bank is "well capitalized" for regulatory capital purposes.  As of June 30, 2013 (the latest information available), the subsidiary bank had a total risk-based capital ratio of 18.23% and a Tier 1 capital ratio of 10.69%.  The minimum ratios to be considered "well capitalized" under current supervisory regulations are 10% for total risk-based capital and 6% for Tier 1 capital.  The minimum ratios to be considered "adequately capitalized" are 8% and 4%, respectively.   

Earlier in 2013 the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve ("FRB") and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ("OCC") published final regulatory capital rules under Basel III.  These new rules will become effective on January 1, 2015, although certain aspects of the new rules will phase in over the following four years.  At this time management does not expect these new rules to have a significant impact on the regulatory capital of Bank Mutual's subsidiary bank, its financial condition, or its results of operations, although there can be no assurances.  In addition, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the "Dodd-Frank Act") will eventually impose specific capital requirements on savings and loan holding companies such as Bank Mutual.  These developments, as well as other requirements that could be imposed by regulators, may impact the ability of Bank Mutual and/or its subsidiary bank to pay dividends or, in the case of Bank Mutual, repurchase its common stock.   

Bank Mutual's non-performing loans were $16.7 million or 1.16% of loans receivable as of September 30, 2013, compared to $25.8 million or 1.84% of loans receivable as of December 31, 2012.  Non-performing assets, which includes non-performing loans, were $26.0 million or 1.12% of total assets and $39.8 million or 1.64% of total assets as of these same dates, respectively.   Bank Mutual's non-performing assets and classified loans have declined in recent periods.  However, this trend is subject to many factors that are outside of Bank Mutual's control, such as economic and market conditions.  As such, there can be no assurances that Bank Mutual's non-performing assets and classified loans will continue to decline in future periods or that there will not be significant variability in Bank Mutual's provision for loan losses from period to period.

Bank Mutual's allowance for loan losses was $22.8 million or 1.58% of total loans at September 30, 2013, compared to $21.6 million or 1.54% of total loans at December 31, 2012.  As a percent of non-performing loans, Bank Mutual's allowance for loan losses was 136.2% at September 30, 2013, compared to 83.6% at December 31, 2012.  Management believes the allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2013, was adequate to cover probable and estimable losses in Bank Mutual's loan portfolio as of that date.  However, future increases to the allowance may be necessary and results of operations could be adversely affected if future conditions differ from the assumptions used by management to determine the allowance for loan losses as of the end of the period. 

Bank Mutual Corporation is the third largest financial institution holding company headquartered in the state of Wisconsin as of June 30, 2013 (the latest information available).  Its stock is quoted on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the ticker BKMU.  Its subsidiary bank, Bank Mutual, operates 75 banking locations in the state of Wisconsin and one in Minnesota.
