Jan 28, 2016, 09:00 ET from Capitol Federal Financial, Inc.

TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Capitol Federal® Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: CFFN) (the "Company") announced results today for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.  Detailed results will be available in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on or about February 9, 2016 and posted on our website, http://ir.capfed.comFor best viewing results, please view this release in Portable Document Format (PDF) on our website.

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • net income of $20.7 million, including $583 thousand from the daily leverage strategy;
  • basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.16;
  • annualized deposit portfolio growth of 12%;
  • net interest margin of 1.75% (2.11% excluding the effects of the daily leverage strategy); and
  • paid dividends of $44.6 million, or $0.335 per share.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015

Net income increased $1.9 million, or 10.3%, from the quarter ended September 30, 2015 to $20.7 million, or $0.16 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, due primarily to a decrease in non-interest expense, along with the benefit of a lower effective income tax rate in the current quarter.  Net income attributable to the daily leverage strategy was $583 thousand during the current quarter compared to $669 thousand in the prior quarter.  The decrease in the net income attributable to the daily leverage strategy was due to an increase in the Federal Home Loan Bank Topeka ("FHLB") line of credit borrowings rate, which was larger than the increase in the average yield earned on cash at the Federal Reserve Bank.

Net interest income increased $42 thousand, or 0.1%, from the prior quarter to $48.0 million for the current quarter.  The net interest margin was 1.75% for the current quarter, unchanged from the prior quarter.  Excluding the effects of the daily leverage strategy, the net interest margin would have been 2.11% for the current quarter compared to 2.10% for the prior quarter.

Interest and Dividend Income

The weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets for the current quarter was 2.71%, unchanged from the prior quarter, while the average balance of interest-earning assets increased $19.8 million between the two periods.  Absent the impact of the daily leverage strategy, the weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets would have decreased two basis points from the prior quarter, to 3.21%, while the average balance would have increased $25.8 million.  The following table presents the components of interest and dividend income for the time periods presented, along with the change measured in dollars and percent.

The increase in interest income on loans receivable was due to an $85.0 million increase in the average balance of the portfolio, partially offset by a two basis point decrease in the weighted average yield on the portfolio, to 3.62% for the current quarter.

The decrease in interest income on MBS was due to a $94.4 million decrease in the average balance of the portfolio, partially offset by a three basis point increase in the weighted average yield on the portfolio.  Cash flows from the portfolio were primarily used to fund loan growth.  During the current quarter, $1.2 million of net premiums on MBS were amortized, which decreased the weighted average yield on the portfolio by 33 basis points.  During the prior quarter, $1.4 million of net premiums were amortized, which decreased the weighted average yield on the portfolio by 36 basis points.

The increase in interest income on cash and cash equivalents was due primarily to a four basis point increase in the weighted average yield resulting from an increase in yield earned on balances held at the Federal Reserve Bank, as well as to a $166.3 million increase in the average balance due to an increase in operating cash.

The decrease in interest income on investment securities was due to a $136.7 million decrease in the average balance of the portfolio, partially offset by a two basis point increase in the weighted average yield on the portfolio.  Cash flows from the portfolio during the current quarter were primarily held as operating cash in anticipation of loan growth and other operational cash flow needs.

Interest Expense

The weighted average rate paid on total interest-bearing liabilities decreased one basis point from the prior quarter, to 1.08%, while the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased $61.3 million between the two periods.  Absent the impact of the daily leverage strategy, the weighted average rate paid on total interest-bearing liabilities would have decreased three basis points from the prior quarter, to 1.28%, and the average balance would have increased $68.9 million.  The following table presents the components of interest expense for the time periods presented, along with the change measured in dollars and percent.

The decrease in interest expense on FHLB borrowings was due largely to a 10 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid on FHLB advances during the current quarter, to 2.24%, due primarily to a full quarter impact of the prepayment of a $175.0 million advance during the prior quarter that had an effective rate of 5.08% and a remaining term-to-maturity of just over six months.  The prepaid FHLB advance was replaced with a $175.0 million fixed-rate advance with an effective rate of 2.18% and a term of three years.

The increase in interest expense on deposits was primarily a result of deposit growth, which increased the average balance of the portfolio by $105.6 million.  The average balance of wholesale certificates of deposit increased $53.5 million and the average balance of retail deposits increased $52.1 million, largely in the certificate of deposit and checking portfolios.

The decrease in salaries and employee benefits expense was due primarily to the prior quarter including compensation expense on unallocated Employee Stock Ownership Plan ("ESOP") shares related to the True Blue Capitol dividend paid during the prior fiscal year.  The decrease in advertising and promotional expense was due primarily to the timing of media campaigns and sponsorships.  The increase in office supplies and related expense was due primarily to the purchase of cards enabled with chip card technology.  The decrease in low income housing partnerships expense was due primarily to impairments in the prior quarter and no such impairments in the current quarter.

The Company's efficiency ratio was 44.05% for the current quarter compared to 47.31% for the prior quarter.  The change in the efficiency ratio was due primarily to a decrease in non-interest expense.  The efficiency ratio is a measure of a financial institution's total non-interest expense as a percentage of the sum of net interest income (pre-provision for credit losses) and non-interest income.  A lower value indicates that the financial institution is generating revenue with a lower level of expense.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $9.2 million for the current quarter compared to $9.4 million for the prior quarter.  The decrease between periods was due to a decrease in the effective income tax rate, from 33.2% for the prior quarter, to 30.8% for the current quarter.  The decrease in the effective income tax rate between quarters was due primarily to the current quarter including favorable discrete items related to state income tax liabilities, along with an increase in nontaxable income related to BOLI and an increase in low income housing tax credits in the current fiscal year.  Management anticipates the effective tax rate for fiscal year 2016 will be approximately 32%, based on fiscal year 2016 estimates as of December 31, 2015.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2015 and 2014

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company recognized net income of $20.7 million, or $0.16 per share, compared to net income of $20.5 million, or $0.15 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2014.  The $246 thousand, or 1.2%, increase in net income was due primarily to a $309 thousand increase in non-interest income and a $266 thousand decrease in income tax expense, partially offset by an $448 thousand increase in non-interest expense.  Net income attributable to the daily leverage strategy was $583 thousand during the current quarter, compared to $795 thousand for the prior year quarter.  The decrease in the net income attributable to the daily leverage strategy was due to an increase in the FHLB line of credit borrowings rate, which was larger than the increase in the average yield earned on the cash at the Federal Reserve Bank.

Net interest income decreased $54 thousand, or 0.1%, from the prior year quarter to $48.0 million for the current quarter.  The net interest margin decreased one basis point, from 1.76% for the prior year quarter to 1.75% for the current year quarter.  Excluding the effects of the daily leverage strategy, the net interest margin would have been 2.11% for the current year quarter, unchanged from the prior year quarter.

Interest and Dividend Income

The weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets decreased three basis points, from 2.74% for the prior year quarter to 2.71% for the current quarter, while the average balance of interest-earning assets increased $55.9 million from the prior year quarter. Absent the impact of the daily leverage strategy, the weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets would have decreased five basis points, from 3.26% for the prior year quarter to 3.21% for the current year quarter.  The following table presents the components of interest and dividend income for the time periods presented along with the change measured in dollars and percent.

The increase in interest income on loans receivable was due to a $395.1 million increase in the average balance of the portfolio, partially offset by a 13 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield on the portfolio, to 3.62% for the current quarter.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due primarily to adjustable-rate loans, endorsements, and refinances repricing loans to lower market rates, along with an increase in net deferred premium amortization and the origination and purchase of loans between periods at rates less than the existing portfolio rate.

The decrease in interest income on the MBS portfolio was due primarily to a $332.2 million decrease in the average balance of the portfolio as cash flows not reinvested were used to fund loan growth.  Additionally, the weighted average yield on the MBS portfolio decreased seven basis points, from 2.29% during the prior year quarter to 2.22% for the current year quarter.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due primarily to repayments of MBS with yields greater than the weighted average yield on the existing portfolio, as well as to an increase in the impact of net premium amortization.  Net premium amortization of $1.2 million during the current year quarter decreased the weighted average yield on the portfolio by 33 basis points.  During the prior year quarter, $1.3 million of net premiums were amortized, which decreased the weighted average yield on the portfolio by 31 basis points.  As of December 31, 2015, the remaining net balance of premiums on our portfolio of MBS was $13.1 million.

The increase in interest income on cash and cash equivalents was due primarily to a three basis point increase in the weighted average yield resulting from an increase in yield earned on balances held at the Federal Reserve Bank.

The decrease in interest income on investment securities was due primarily to a $79.7 million decrease in the average balance.

Interest Expense

The weighted average rate paid on total interest-bearing liabilities decreased three basis points, from 1.11% for the prior year quarter to 1.08% for the current year quarter, while the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased $183.1 million from the prior year quarter as a result of deposit growth.  Absent the impact of the daily leverage strategy, the weighted average rate paid on total interest-bearing liabilities would have decreased eight basis points from the prior year quarter, to 1.28%, due primarily to a decrease in the cost of term borrowings.  The following table presents the components of interest expense for the time periods presented, along with the change measured in dollars and percent.

The decrease in interest expense on FHLB borrowings was due primarily to an 18 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid on FHLB advances, to 2.24% for the current year quarter, partially offset by an eight basis point increase in the weighted average rate paid on FHLB line of credit borrowings.  The decrease in the weighted average rate paid on the FHLB advance portfolio was primarily a result of renewals of advances to lower market rates and the prepayment of advances between periods.

The increase in interest expense on deposits was primarily a result of deposit growth, which increased the average balance of the deposit portfolio by $235.5 million.  The average balance of retail deposits increased $181.8 million, mainly in the certificate of deposit and checking portfolios.

The decrease in interest expense on repurchase agreements was due to the maturity between periods of a $20.0 million repurchase agreement at a rate of 4.45%, which was not replaced.

The increase in occupancy, net expense was due mainly to non-capitalizable costs associated with the remodel of Capitol Federal Savings Bank's (the "Bank") Kansas City market area operations center.  The increase in office supplies and related expense was due primarily to the purchase of cards enabled with chip card technology.  The decrease in low income housing partnerships expense was due primarily to impairments in the prior year quarter.

The Company's efficiency ratio was 44.05% for the current quarter compared to 43.42% for the prior year quarter.  The change in the efficiency ratio was due primarily to an increase in non-interest expense.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $9.2 million for the current quarter compared to $9.5 million for the prior year quarter.  The effective tax rate for the current quarter was 30.8% compared to 31.7% for the prior year quarter.  The decrease in the effective tax rate was due primarily to larger, favorable discrete items in the current quarter related to state income tax liabilities, along with an increase in nontaxable income related to BOLI and an increase in low income housing tax credits in the current fiscal year.

Financial Condition as of December 31, 2015

Total assets were $9.13 billion at December 31, 2015 compared to $9.84 billion at September 30, 2015.  The $710.7 million decrease was due primarily to a $540.3 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents and $31.5 million decrease in FHLB stock, both due to the removal of the daily leverage strategy at December 31, 2015, as well as to a $192.3 million decrease in the securities portfolio.   Cash flows from the securities portfolio were primarily held as operating cash as well as used to fund loan growth during the quarter.

The loan receivable portfolio, net, increased $40.1 million, to $6.67 billion at December 31, 2015, from $6.63 billion at September 30, 2015.  The loan growth was funded with cash flows from the securities portfolio.  During the current quarter, the Bank originated and refinanced $195.6 million of loans with a weighted average rate of 3.68%, purchased $118.6 million of loans from correspondent lenders with a weighted average rate of 3.54%, and participated in $8.9 million of multi-family and commercial real estate loans with a weighted average rate of 4.25%.

Total liabilities were $7.74 billion at December 31, 2015 compared to $8.43 billion at September 30, 2015.  The $685.3 million decrease was due primarily to a $799.2 million decrease in FHLB borrowings largely as a result of the removal of the daily leverage strategy at December 31, 2015, along with a $100.0 million decrease in term advances, as well as to a $37.5 million decrease in advance payments by borrowers for taxes and insurance due to the payment of real estate taxes and insurance on behalf of our borrowers, partially offset by a $140.0 million increase in the deposit portfolio.  Management intends to remove the entire daily leverage strategy at each quarter end during fiscal year 2016.  The growth in deposits was primarily in the checking, wholesale certificate of deposit, and money market portfolios, which increased $79.3 million, $36.8 million, and $34.1 million, respectively.

Stockholders' equity was $1.39 billion at December 31, 2015 compared to $1.42 billion at September 30, 2015.  The $25.4 million decrease between periods was due primarily to the payment of $44.5 million in cash dividends, partially offset by net income of $20.7 million.  The $44.5 million in cash dividends paid during the current quarter consisted of a $0.25 per share, or $33.2 million, cash true-up dividend related to fiscal year 2015 earnings per the Company's dividend policy, and a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.085 per share, or $11.3 million.  On January 26, 2016, the Company declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.085 per share, or approximately $11.3 million, payable on February 19, 2016 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 5, 2016.

At December 31, 2015, Capitol Federal Financial, Inc., at the holding company level, had $70.3 million on deposit at the Bank.  For fiscal year 2016, it is the intent of the Board of Directors and management to continue with the payout of 100% of the Company's earnings to its stockholders.  Dividend payments depend upon a number of factors including the Company's financial condition and results of operations, regulatory capital requirements, regulatory limitations on the Bank's ability to make capital distributions to the Company, and the amount of cash at the holding company.

In October 2015, the Company announced a stock repurchase plan for up to $70.0 million of common stock.  The repurchase plan does not have an expiration date.  The Company did not repurchase any shares during the three months ended December 31, 2015 or subsequent to December 31, 2015 through the date of this release.

The following table presents, for our portfolio of one- to four-family loans, the amount, percent of total, weighted average credit score, weighted average loan-to-value ("LTV") ratio, and average balance per loan at the dates presented.  Credit scores are updated at least semiannually, with the last update in September 2015, from a nationally recognized consumer rating agency.  The LTV ratios were based on the current loan balance and either the lesser of the purchase price or original appraisal, or the most recent Bank appraisal, if available.  In most cases, the most recent appraisal was obtained at the time of origination.

Loan Commitments

The following table summarizes our one- to four-family loan origination, refinance, and correspondent purchase commitments as of December 31, 2015, along with associated weighted average rates.  Commitments generally have fixed expiration dates or other termination clauses and may require the payment of a rate lock fee.  A percentage of the commitments are expected to expire unfunded, so the amounts reflected in the table below are not necessarily indicative of future cash requirements.

Loan Activity

The following table summarizes activity in our loan portfolio, along with weighted average rates where applicable, for the periods indicated, excluding changes in undisbursed loan funds, ACL, discounts/unearned loan fees, and premiums/deferred costs.  Loans that were paid-off as a result of refinances are included in repayments.  Loan endorsements are not included in the activity in the following tables because a new loan is not generated at the time of the endorsement.  The endorsed balance and rate are included in the ending loan portfolio balance and rate.  During the three months ended December 31, 2015, the Bank endorsed $23.6 million of one- to four-family loans, reducing the average rate on those loans by 90 basis points.

Asset Quality

Economic conditions in the Bank's local market areas have a significant impact on the ability of borrowers to repay loans and the value of the collateral securing these loans.  As of December 2015, the unemployment rate was 3.9% for Kansas and 4.4% for Missouri, compared to the national average of 5.0%, based on information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The following tables present loans 30 to 89 days delinquent, non-performing loans, and other real estate owned ("OREO") as of the dates indicated.  Of the loans 30 to 89 days delinquent at December 31, 2015, approximately 74% were 59 days or less delinquent.  Non-performing loans are loans that are 90 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure, and nonaccrual loans that are less than 90 days delinquent but are required to be reported as nonaccrual pursuant to Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ("OCC") reporting requirements even if the loans are current.  Non-performing assets include non-performing loans and OREO.  Over the past 12 months, OREO properties were owned by the Bank, on average, for approximately four months before they were sold.

Securities Portfolio

The following table presents the distribution of our MBS and investment securities portfolio, at amortized cost, at the dates indicated.  The majority of our MBS and investment securities portfolio are composed of securities issued by U.S. government-sponsored enterprises ("GSEs").  Overall, fixed-rate securities comprised 79% of these portfolios at December 31, 2015.  The weighted average life ("WAL") is the estimated remaining principal repayment term (in years) after three-month historical prepayment speeds and projected call option assumptions have been applied.  Weighted average yields on tax-exempt securities are not calculated on a fully taxable equivalent basis.

Average Rates and Lives

At December 31, 2015, the Bank's one-year gap between the amount of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities projected to reprice was $531.2 million, or 5.8% of total assets, compared to $735.9 million, or 7.5% of total assets, at September 30, 2015.  The decrease in the one-year gap amount was due primarily to higher interest rates at December 31, 2015 than at September 30, 2015, resulting in a decrease in prepayment projections on the Bank's mortgage loan and MBS portfolios, as well as a decrease in the amount of securities projected to be called, which caused a decrease in the amount of assets expected to reprice over the 12-month horizon.  The amount of interest-bearing liabilities expected to reprice in a given period is not typically impacted by changes in interest rates because the Bank's borrowings and certificate of deposit portfolios have contractual maturities and generally cannot be terminated early without a prepayment penalty.  The majority of interest-earning assets anticipated to reprice in the coming year are repayments and prepayments on mortgage loans and MBS, both of which include the option to prepay without a fee being paid by the contract holder.  As interest rates rise, the amount of interest-earning assets expected to reprice will likely decrease from estimated levels as borrowers would have less economic incentive to modify their cost of borrowings.  If interest rates were to increase 200 basis points, as of December 31, 2015, the Bank's one-year gap is projected to be $131.9 million, or 1.4% of total assets.  This compares to a one-year gap of $25.2 million, or 0.3% of total assets, if interest rates were to have increased 200 basis points as of September 30, 2015.

The gap position of the Bank has been managed over the past several years in anticipation of higher interest rates.  Because of the on-balance sheet strategies implemented over the past several years of lengthening FHLB advances, increasing rates offered on longer-term certificate of deposit products, purchasing shorter term agency debentures, and focusing on the long-term value of the balance sheet through the measurement and management of our market value of portfolio equity, management believes the Bank is well-positioned to move into a market rate environment where interest rates are higher.

The following table presents the weighted average yields/rates and WALs (in years), after applying prepayment, call assumptions, and decay rates for our interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities as of the date presented.  Yields presented for interest-earning assets include the amortization of fees, costs, premiums and discounts, which are considered adjustments to the yield.  The interest rate presented for term borrowings is the effective rate, which includes the impact of the amortization of deferred prepayment penalties resulting from FHLB advances previously prepaid.  The maturity and repricing terms presented for one- to four-family loans represent the contractual terms of the loan.

Average Balance Sheets

The following tables present the average balances of our assets, liabilities, and stockholders' equity, and the related annualized weighted average yields and rates on our interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities for the periods indicated and the weighted average yield/rate on our interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities at December 31, 2015.  At December 31, 2015, the daily leverage strategy was not in place, so the yields/rates presented at December 31, 2015 in the tables below do not reflect the effects of the daily leverage strategy.  Weighted average yields are derived by dividing annualized income by the average balance of the related assets, and weighted average rates are derived by dividing annualized expense by the average balance of the related liabilities, for the periods shown.  Average outstanding balances are derived from average daily balances.  The weighted average yields and rates include amortization of fees, costs, premiums and discounts, which are considered adjustments to yields/rates.  Weighted average yields on tax-exempt securities are not calculated on a fully taxable equivalent basis.
