OBA Financial Services, Inc. Announces Fiscal 1st Quarter 2014 Results

GERMANTOWN, Md., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OBA Financial Services, Inc., (NASDAQ – OBAF) ("Company"), the parent company of OBA Bank ("Bank"), announces net income of $314 thousand, or $0.08 basic and diluted earnings per share, for the Company's fiscal first quarter of 2014 which ended September 30, 2013 as compared to net income of $260 thousand, or $0.07 basic and diluted earnings per share, for the period ended September 30, 2012 and net income of $228 thousand, or $0.06 basic and diluted earnings per share, for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Charles E. Weller, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The Company performed well financially over the last quarter and continues to make progress on our primary strategy of building commercial business relationships.  Total commercial loans increased to $196.8 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2013, led by our commercial real estate ("CRE") portfolio, which increased 3.0% to $144.3 million, during the most recent quarter.  Our asset quality remains better than most of our peers as non-performing assets to total assets were 0.18% and non-performing loans to total loans were 0.23% at September 30, 2013.

"We are pleased to add another seasoned, well-respected commercial business lender to our Montgomery County group.  Michael Benedict brings a substantial and highly-valued client list to the Bank and adds depth to an already strong lending group in one of the nation's more resilient markets.

"On November 4, 2013, the Bank changed to a new service provider for account processing, online banking, cash management services, and statement production.  The new platform should better serve our commercial business banking model and provide us with the products and services needed to successfully compete in that arena.  The platform should also provide enhanced management information systems and flexibility to support our decision making processes.

"We remain dedicated to taking actions over time that benefit all of our shareholders and continually improving the value of their investment in our Company."

Financial Highlights Comparing the Three Months Ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 and June 30, 2013:

  • Net income increased 20.8%, or $54 thousand, to $314 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.  Additionally, net income increased 37.7%, or $86 thousand, from $228 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2013.
  • Net income excluding the impact of the compensation expense related to the shareholder-approved equity incentive plan, approximately $145 thousand after-tax in each period listed, increased $54 thousand, or 13.3%, to $459 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 and increased $86 thousand, or 23.1%, from $373 thousand, for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  The adjusted return on average assets was 0.47% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, an increase from 0.41% and 0.39% for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and June 30, 2013, respectively.
  • Total CRE loans increased $4.2 million, or 12.4% annualized, to $144.3 million at June 30, 2013.
  • Total deposits increased $18.4 million, or 6.8%, to $290.1 million at September 30, 2013 compared to September 30, 2012 and $6.9 million, or 2.4% (10.0% annualized), compared to June 30, 2013.

Income Statement 
Net income increased $54 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2012.  The change in net income was primarily due to an increase in net interest income of $103 thousand and a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $107 thousand offset by increases in income taxes, compensation expense, and data processing and other expenses related to the impending conversion to the Bank's new service provider. 

Net income increased $86 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  The change in net income was due to a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $174 thousand and a decrease in non-interest expense of $488 thousand due to the partial repayment, in the previous quarter, of a high cost Federal Home Loan Bank advance.  Those changes were offset by a decrease in net interest income due to the recognition, in the quarter ended June 30, 2013, of all fees and interest due on the payoff of the second of two non-performing commercial real estate loans to not-for-profit entities in which the Company had a full recovery. 

Balance Sheet
Total assets increased to $390.4 million at September 30, 2013 from $381.6 million at June 30, 2013 and $388.8 million at September 30, 2012.

Total commercial loans increased $21.7 million, or 12.4%, to $196.8 million at September 30, 2013 compared to September 30, 2012.  CRE loans increased 11.6 million, or 8.7%, to $144.3 million at September 30, 2013 compared to September 30, 2012.  Total loans remained relatively unchanged at $301.5 million, a slight decrease of $1.8 million from June 30, 2013.  The residential mortgage loan portfolio decreased $3.0 million, to $77.5 million at September 30, 2013 from June 30, 2013. 

Total deposits increased $18.4 million, or 6.8%, to $290.1 million from $271.7 million at September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $6.9 million, or 2.4% (10.0% annualized), from $283.3 million at June 30, 2013.

Equity and Capital
Stockholders' equity decreased to $71.8 million at September 30, 2013 compared to $75.7 million at September 30, 2012 primarily as a result of the Company's share repurchase program.  The Company's initial share repurchase program was completed as of May 3, 2012, having repurchased the 462,875 shares approved in that initial program. The Company's second share repurchase program was completed on April 17, 2013, having repurchased 208,294 shares.  The Company's Board of Directors adopted a third share repurchase program, previously disclosed in the Company's Form 8-K filed on April 29, 2013.
