Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Financial Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ Global Select Market: UBNK), the holding company for United Bank (the "Bank"), reported net income of $4.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to net loss of $4.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the corresponding period in 2012. Excluding merger-related expenses of $598,000 ($449,000 net of tax benefit) resulting from the Company's agreement to merge with Rockville Financial, Inc. and gains from sales of securities totaling $277,000 ($164,000 net of tax expense), net income would have been $4.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2013.  Excluding an ESOP plan termination expense of $4.5 million, merger-related expenses totaling $4.0 million associated with the Company's acquisition of New England Bancshares, Inc., an FHLB advance prepayment fee of $207,000 and a tax benefit of $465,000 related to these one-time items, net income would have been $3.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, net income was $17.4 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for 2012.  Excluding branch closing costs totaling $987,000 ($584,000 net of tax benefit), merger-related expenses of $879,000 ($718,000 net of tax benefit), net gains from sales of securities totaling $227,000 ($134,000 net of tax expense)  and a $206,000 gain related to an investment in a venture capital fund accounted for on a cash basis ($122,000 net of tax expense), net income would have been $18.4 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2013. Excluding merger-related expenses of $5.0 million, the ESOP plan termination expense of $4.5 million, the $207,000 FHLB prepayment penalty, impairment charges on securities of $202,000 and a tax benefit of $660,000 related to these one-time items, net income would have been $12.8 million, or $0.83 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2012.

The Company also announced a quarterly cash dividend of $0.11 per share, payable on March 3, 2014 to shareholders of record as of February 7, 2014. Based upon the closing share price of $19.30 as of January 22, 2014 and the annualized dividend of $0.44, the dividend yield on the Company's common stock is 2.28%.

Financial Highlights:

  • Total loans increased by $65.8 million, or 4%, to $1.88 billion at December 31, 2013 from $1.82 billion at December 31, 2012, primarily due to growth of $47.9 million, or 6%, in commercial mortgages, $24.7 million, or 6%, in residential mortgages and $10.0 million, or 19%, in construction loans.  These items were partially offset by a $13.1 million, or 4%, decrease in commercial loans.
  • Credit quality remained strong, as demonstrated by the non-performing loans to total loans ratio of 0.87% at December 31, 2013 and a net charge-offs to average loans ratio of 0.15% for the year ended December 31, 2013.
  • Core deposits increased by $71.7 million, or 6%, to $1.21 billion at December 31, 2013 from $1.14 billion at December 31, 2012. 
  • Tangible book value per share was $13.03 at December 31, 2013.  The Company repurchased 489,351 shares of its common stock at an average price of $14.88 per share during 2013.  At December 31, 2013, the Company had approximately 1.2 million shares authorized for future repurchases under current plans.   

"Our integration efforts with Rockville Bank are going quite well.  The registration statement and regulatory applications have both been filed and our teams are working together to ensure a smooth and timely integration later this year.  We are working toward a closing in the second quarter pending regulatory and shareholder approval. I look forward to sharing more news as the merger progresses," commented Richard B. Collins, President and Chief Executive Officer.  

Earnings Summary

  • Net interest income increased $3.1 million, or 19%, to $19.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 as a result of an increase in average interest-earning assets partially offset by a reduction in the net interest margin. Total average interest-earning assets increased $405.8 million, or 21%, to $2.30 billion for the fourth quarter of 2013 driven by the acquisition of New England Bank in the fourth quarter of 2012 and solid organic loan growth. The net interest margin declined 6 basis points to 3.37% for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to the same period last year reflecting a decrease in spreads in response to the competitive interest rate environment.
  • Provision for loan losses increased by $436,000, or 63%, to $1.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 mainly due to higher levels of charge-offs and classified loan reserves.
  • Non-interest income increased $270,000, or 9%, to $3.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 due to growth in other income, wealth management income and deposit service charges. Other income increased by $162,000, or 56%, reflecting higher loan prepayment penalties and increased credit enhancement fees related to residential loans sold to the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston. Wealth management income grew by $129,000, or 56%, primarily attributable to growth in assets under management.  Fee income on depositors' accounts increased $95,000, or 6%, driven by a larger deposit base related to the New England Bank acquisition, offset to a large extent by the negative impact of new regulations, including the Durbin Amendment, on debit card fee income.  These items were offset in part by a reduction of $187,000 in gains from loan sales as the company did not sell any loans in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • Non-interest expense decreased $6.3 million, or 28%, to $16.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Excluding merger-related expenses totaling $598,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013 and $4.0 million for the same period in 2012, as well as the ESOP plan termination expense of $4.5 million recognized in the fourth quarter of 2012,  non-interest expense would have increased by $1.6 million, or 11%, as compared to the same period one year ago primarily reflecting costs to operate, expand and promote our new Connecticut franchise, annual wage increases and higher expenses related to loan workout and collection activities and an increase in tax credit funds expenses.

Balance Sheet Activity:

  • Total assets increased $79.5 million, or 3%, to $2.48 billion at December 31, 2013 from $2.40 billion at December 31, 2012 reflecting growth in loans and interest-bearing cash balances.
  • Total loans increased $65.8 million, or 4%, to $1.88 billion at December 31, 2013 due to growth in commercial mortgages ($47.9 million), residential mortgages ($24.7 million) and construction loans ($10.0 million) as a result of successful business development efforts and competitive products and pricing.  These items were partially reduced by runoff in the commercial and consumer segments.
  • Cash and cash equivalents increased $16.6 million, or 54%, to $47.2 million at December 31, 2013 due to a temporary increase in interest-earning balances held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
  • Total deposits increased $98.3 million, or 5%, to $1.95 billion at December 31, 2013 reflecting growth of $71.7 million, or 6%, in core account balances and an increase of $26.6 million, or 4%, in certificates of deposit.  The growth in core deposit account balances was driven by sales and marketing initiatives, competitive products and pricing and a focus on providing excellent customer service. Core deposit balances were $1.21 billion, or 62% of total deposits, at December 31, 2013.
  • Short-term borrowings decreased $17.7 million, or 22%, to $61.6 million at December 31, 2013 and  long term-debt increased by $8.3 million, or 6%, to $142.3 million at December 31, 2013 as the Bank elected to extend the term of certain short-term FHLB advances.

Credit Quality:

  • Non-performing assets totaled $18.9 million, or 0.76% of total assets, at December 31, 2013 compared to $17.3 million, or 0.72% of total assets, at December 31, 2012.  The $1.6 million increase in non-performing assets reflects additional loans placed on non-accrual.
  • The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.71% at December 31, 2013 as compared to 0.67% at December 31, 2012.  Excluding the aggregate impact of acquired loans totaling $528.6 million at December 31, 2013 and $664.6 million at December 31, 2012, the ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans would have been 0.99% at December 31, 2013 and 1.05% at December 31, 2012.  Net charge-offs totaled $2.8 million, or 0.15% of average loans outstanding for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to net charge-offs of $1.1 million, or 0.11% of average loans outstanding for the same period in 2012.    

Capital and Liquidity:

  • At December 31, 2013, the Company remained well capitalized with a tangible equity-to-tangible assets ratio of 10.58% and an equity-to-assets ratio of 12.20%.
  • At December 31, 2013, the Company continued to have considerable liquidity consisting of significant balances at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, a large amount of marketable loans and investment securities, substantial unused borrowing capacity at the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and access to funding through the repurchase agreement and brokered deposit markets.
