HF Financial Corp. Earns $0.29 per Share in First Fiscal Quarter First Quarter Reflects Improved Core Operations, Lending Growth and Strong Capital Ratios

Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend of $0.1125 per Share

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --HF Financial Corp. (Nasdaq: HFFC) today reported its earnings increased 44% to $2.1 million, or $0.29 per diluted share for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $1.4 million, or $0.21 per diluted share for the prior year's first fiscal quarter. Loan loss recoveries, production and gains on the sale of mortgage loans and a reduction in expenses helped to drive results for the quarter.  

HF Financial's capital ratios continue to increase with tangible common equity to tangible assets at 8.23% at September 30, 2012 versus 7.78% the previous quarter and 7.62% one year earlier.   Capital ratios continued to remain well above minimum regulatory requirements.  The tangible book value per share was $13.40 at September 30, 2012. 

"Our core operations continue to improve," said Stephen Bianchi, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Noninterest expenses are nearly $1.0 million lower than one year ago reflecting our continued efforts to contain expenses.  Additionally, we are beginning to see moderate improvement in lending opportunities. Residential mortgage loan originations have increased considerably over the past year with the majority of these loans sold into the secondary market.  Commercial real estate lending opportunities have increased, while strong underwriting standards remain in place.  Agricultural loans still represent over 21.8% of the loan portfolio despite seasonal loan repayments at the end of this year's farming cycle."

Fiscal First Quarter Financial Highlights (at or for the period ended September 30, 2012, compared to June 30, 2012, and September 30, 2011.)

  • Earnings for the fiscal first quarter were $0.29 per diluted share versus $0.26 per diluted share in the preceding quarter and $0.21 per share in the first fiscal quarter a year ago. 
  • The provision for loan loss was a net benefit of $300,000 for the first fiscal quarter versus a benefit of $1.1 million the preceding quarter and a provision of $522,000 one year earlier.  Loan recoveries exceeded charge-offs during the past two quarters, helping to support a sound allowance for loan losses relative to total loans. 
  • The allowance for loan losses was 1.55% of gross loans at September 30, 2012, the same level as the previous quarter, and up from 1.35% a year ago.
  • Nonperforming assets ("NPAs") improved further, decreasing to $16.7 million, or 1.45% of total assets from $17.8 million, or 1.49%, of total assets at the end of the preceding quarter.  Of the $15.6 million of nonperforming loans included in NPAs, $13.2 million of these loans were current on their scheduled payments. This is the fifth consecutive quarter in which nonperforming assets have trended down. 
  • The net interest margin, expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis ("NIM, TE"), was 2.72% versus 2.99% for the preceding quarter. 
  • Strong mortgage lending activity led to gain on sale of loans of $1.0 million and securities gains added $1.8 million for the quarter, while nonrecurring charges to noninterest income included $1.5 million related to the termination of hedging activity on deposit balances.  Provision for impairment of mortgage servicing rights totaled $263,000 for the quarter.
  • Capital levels at September 30, 2012 continued to remain well above the regulatory "well-capitalized" minimum levels of 10.00%, 6.00% and 5.00%, respectively:
    • Total risk-based capital to risk weighted assets was 16.32% versus 15.87% at June 30, 2012.
    • Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets was 15.07% versus 14.62% at June 30, 2012.
    • Tier 1 capital to total adjusted assets was 10.05% versus 9.66% at June 30, 2012.
  • The most recent dividend of $0.1125 per share represents the eighteenth consecutive quarter at this level and provides a 3.60% current yield at recent market prices.
  • Tangible book value per share increased to $13.40 per share, compared to $12.96 per share at September 30, 2011.

Balance Sheet and Asset Quality Review

Total assets at September 30, 2012, declined slightly from the preceding quarter to $1.15 billion from $1.19 billion due primarily to security sales, which accompanied the reduction of funding from deposits and the repayment of Federal Home Loan Bank advances.  Meanwhile, total loans increased to $695.6 million from $683.7 million during the most recent quarter, with the largest gain in commercial real estate loans.  Commercial real estate lending activity remains solid in local markets and accounted for 42.5% of the loan portfolio.  Agricultural loans are the next largest business sector in the loan portfolio, accounting for 21.8% of the loan portfolio, followed by consumer loans at 15.1%, commercial business loans at 11.8% and residential loans at 8.8%. 

"Mortgage originations driven by refinance and purchase activity remain strong in our markets and we recorded a large level of gains on the sale of mortgage loans, while we retained servicing and added lower coupon mortgages to our servicing portfolio," added Bianchi. 

Total deposits were $861.6 million at September 30, 2012, versus $893.9 million at June 30, 2012. Deposit balances decreased in the first quarter from the preceding quarter, due primarily to a $45.0 million decline in seasonal public fund deposits.  Excluding public funds, deposits increased $12.7 million from the preceding quarter.  FHLB advances are being repaid as they mature and are not being rolled into new term advances.

Nonperforming assets decreased to $16.7 million at September 30, 2012, from $17.8 million the preceding quarter and $31.4 million a year ago.  Total NPAs were 1.45% of total assets at the end of the quarter, compared to 2.64% one year earlier.  "For the second consecutive quarter, we recognized more net recoveries relative to charge-offs.  We remain diligent in recovering the value of our assets while prudently keeping adequate reserves on our loan portfolio," said Bianchi.

The allowance for loan and lease losses at September 30, 2012, totaled $10.8 million, representing 1.55% of total loans outstanding.  Relative to the previous quarter, reserves increased $243,000 while the ratio of reserves to total loans remained the same.  Charge-offs in the quarter totaled $403,000 while recoveries totaled $946,000.

Tangible common shareholders' equity increased to 8.23% of tangible assets at September 30, 2012 compared to 7.78% at June 30, 2012.  Tangible book value per common share was $13.40 at September 30, 2012. 

Capital ratios continued to remain strong and the Bank remained well-capitalized with Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets of 15.07% at September 30, 2012, while its Tier 1 capital to adjusted total assets was 10.05%.  These regulatory ratios were much higher than the required minimum levels of 6.00% and 5.00%, respectively.

Review of Operations

For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, HF Financial's earnings reflect net loan loss recoveries and resulting provision benefit of $300,000, gains on the sale of loans of $1.0 million and security gains of $1.8 million, partially offsetting the $1.5 million cost of terminating its deposit hedging activities.  "With the Federal Reserve indicating they intend to hold rates steady into 2015, we decided to terminate our deposit hedging activity.  The termination should help us improve our net interest margin by approximately eight basis points through lower overall deposit costs," said Brent Olthoff, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer.

Net interest income totaled $7.3 million for the first fiscal quarter 2013 compared to $8.1 million for the previous fiscal quarter, and $9.1 million in the year ago quarter.  The net interest margin on a fully taxable equivalent basis was 2.72% for the first quarter compared to 2.99% the previous quarter.

Fee income and gains on the sale of loans and securities contributed to a stronger level of noninterest income.  Deposit fees totaled $2.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 versus $1.5 million the previous quarter and $1.6 million one year earlier.  Deposit fees for the first fiscal quarter included approximately $600,000 of nonrecurring vendor incentive related to debit cards.  Gains on the sale of loans totaled $1.0 million for the first fiscal quarter compared to $780,000 the preceding quarter.  Security gains totaled $1.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to $616,000 during the preceding quarter.  Nonrecurring charges to other noninterest income included $1.5 million related to the termination of hedging activity on deposit balances for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.  Total noninterest income was $4.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to $3.1 million the previous quarter and $3.4 million one year earlier.

Noninterest expenses decreased to $8.8 million in the first fiscal quarter from $9.6 million in the preceding quarter, reflecting the streamlining of the branch footprint completed in the prior fiscal year. In the fiscal first quarter a year ago, noninterest expenses totaled $9.8 million. Total compensation and employee benefit expenses totaled $4.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, which is similar to the preceding quarter.  One year earlier, the first quarter's compensation and employee benefit expenses totaled $5.7 million.   Professional fees for the first fiscal quarter included approximately $165,000 of nonrecurring consulting expense related to debit card incentive income.  Occupancy and equipment totaled $1.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, which is $55,000 less than the same quarter of a year ago due to the consolidation of 6 branches to other nearby branches during the past 3 quarters. Generally, total noninterest expenses reflect lower compensation, occupancy and professional fees relative to the same time period one year ago. 

These financial results are preliminary until the Form 10-Q is filed in November 2012.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

The board of directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.1125 per common share for the first fiscal quarter 2013.  The dividend is payable November 16, 2012 to stockholders of record November 9, 2012.

(1) Includes loan fees and interest on accruing loans and leases past due 90 days or more.

(2) Includes federal funds sold and interest earning reserve balances at the Federal Reserve Bank.

(3) Yields do not reflect the tax-exempt nature of loans, equipment leases and municipal securities.

(4) Percentages for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2012 have been annualized.

(5) Net interest income divided by average interest-earning assets.

(6) Net interest margin expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis ("Net Interest Margin, TE") is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the following Non-GAAP Disclosure Reconciliation of Net Interest Income (GAAP) to Net Interest Margin, TE (Non-GAAP). The tax-equivalent adjustment to net interest income recognizes the income tax savings when comparing taxable and tax-exempt assets and adjusting for federal and state exemption of interest income and certain other permanent income tax differences. We believe that it is a standard practice in the banking industry to present net interest margin expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis, and accordingly believe the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure may be useful for peer comparison purposes. As a non-GAAP financial measure, Net Interest Margin, TE should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. As other companies may use different calculations for Net Interest Margin, TE, this presentation may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(7) Ratio of net income to average total assets.

(8) Ratio of net income to average equity.
