BCSB Bancorp, Inc. Reports Results For The Second Quarter Ended March 31, 2013

25 Apr, 2013, 16:00 ET from BCSB Bancorp, Inc.

BALTIMORE, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BCSB Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: BCSB), the holding company for Baltimore County Savings Bank (the "Bank") reported net income of $303,000, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share for the three month period ended March 31, 2013, which represents the second quarter of its 2013 fiscal year, as compared to net income of $574,000, or $0.19 per basic share and $0.18 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The Company also disposed of a private label CMO security in March 2013. A loss on sale of $588,000 related to the security was more than offset by gains on sales of other securities in the Company's investment portfolio during the quarter. 

Net income for the six months ended March 31, 2013 was $942,000, or $0.30 per basic share and $0.29 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $1,036,000, or $0.34 per basic share and $0.33 per diluted share for the six months ended March 31, 2012.

During the three and six months ended March 31, 2013, earnings were favorably impacted by reductions in non-interest expense as compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year and, during the six months ended March 31, 2013, earnings were favorably impacted by an increase in net interest income. Earnings for the three and six months ended March 31, 2013 were negatively impacted by decreases in non-interest income and increases in provision for loan losses, as compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year. Reductions in non-interest income during fiscal year 2013 were primarily due to gain on sales of foreclosed real estate recognized during the prior fiscal year. Increases in provision for loan losses were necessary to address elevated charge-offs during fiscal year 2013 as certain problem loans were foreclosed upon and transferred to Foreclosed Real Estate.

President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph J. Bouffard commented, "Although somewhat disappointed with net earnings, we were able to make notable progress with other important initiatives during the period. Nonperforming assets have declined in each of the past two consecutive quarters and have dropped by nearly $3.5 million during the first six months of fiscal year 2013. As mentioned above, we disposed of a  private label CMO security, eliminating exposure to future OTTI charges related to that instrument. And on April 19, 2013 we were able to repurchase from the U.S. Treasury a warrant to purchase more than 183,000 shares of the Company's common stock issued in connection with the TARP Capital Purchase Program. We have now completely exited TARP without having to raise capital, which would have diluted our shareholders."

Tangible book value provides a measure of tangible equity on a per share basis. It is determined by methods other than in accordance with Accounting Principles Generally Accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and, as such, is considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes the presentation of Tangible book value per share is meaningful supplemental information for shareholders. We calculate Tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as of period end.

Nonaccrual status denotes loans on which, in the opinion of management, the collection of additional interest is questionable.  Also included in this category at March 31, 2013 is $109,000 in Troubled Debt Restructurings.  Reporting guidance requires disclosure of these loans as nonaccrual until the loans have performed according to the modified terms for a sustained period. As of March 31, 2013, the Company had a total of $6.3 million in Troubled Debt Restructurings, all of which are performing according to their restructured terms.

(3)

Regulatory guidance provides that residential rental foreclosed real estate with leases in place and demonstrated cash flow generating a reasonable rate of return generally is not considered to be a classified asset. As of March 31, 2013, the Company has identified $508,000 in foreclosed real estate meeting these criteria. Accordingly, this amount has been excluded from nonperforming assets.
