HF Financial Corp. Announces Second Quarter Earnings and Quarterly Dividend

Jan 25, 2010, 18:37 ET from HF Financial Corp.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- HF Financial Corp. (Nasdaq: HFFC), reported earnings of $2.0 million, or $0.38 in diluted earnings per common share, for the fiscal second quarter ended December 31, 2009, versus $1.8 million, or $0.46 in diluted earnings per common share, in the comparable period in fiscal 2009.  Adjusting for net gain on sale of securities and other-than-temporary impairment credit loss, adjusted earnings were $1.8 million and adjusted diluted earnings per common share was $0.35 for the quarter versus $1.8 million or $0.45, for the comparable period in fiscal 2009.  Adjusted earnings and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures.

Revenue totaled $12.1 million for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2009, as compared to revenue of $11.9 million in the comparable period last year.  HF Financial Corp. incurred a second quarter net other-than-temporary impairment loss of $340,000 from trust preferred securities held in the investment portfolio, offset by a net gain on sale of securities of $603,000, as compared to $45,000 of net gain on sale of securities in the second quarter of fiscal 2009.  Excluding the other-than-temporary impairment credit loss and net gain on sale of securities, adjusted revenue totaled $11.8 million, a $43,000 decrease, or 0.4 percent, from the prior year quarter.  Adjusted revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure.

The Company previously announced the pricing of an underwritten public offering in November 2009.  The Company issued 2.875 million shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $8.00 per share, for gross proceeds of $23.0 million. The net proceeds of the offering after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses totaled approximately $20.7 million.  Per share earnings calculations were based on a diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 5.20 million shares versus 4.02 million shares in the comparable period in fiscal 2009  

"The banking industry is moving through historic times," said Curt Hage, Chairman, CEO and President of HF Financial Corp.  "Our recently completed equity offering provides us with the resources necessary to capitalize on the opportunities that the current difficult economic conditions present.  We believe that the completion of this offering is confirmation of our ability to successfully execute our growth strategy; we look forward with optimism to the times ahead."

Net interest income totaled $8.9 million for the quarter, down $149,000, or 1.7 percent, from the second fiscal quarter of last year.  Net interest margin expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis for the three month period was 3.30 percent, versus 3.40 percent in the comparable period last year.  The decrease in net interest income resulted from lower yields on earning assets, which were partially offset by lower costs of interest-bearing liabilities.  Lower yields on loans and securities is due in part to lower index rates for adjustable-rate loans and securities upon rate adjustment periods, and as a result of the change in the re-pricing characteristics of the investment portfolio toward a larger proportion of adjustable-rate securities versus the prior year period.

Noninterest income totaled $3.3 million, an increase of $324,000 relative to the comparable period in fiscal 2009.  Net gain on sale of loans and net gain on sale of securities increased $252,000 and $558,000, respectively, which were the primary factors contributing to the increase.  Net other-than-temporary impairment losses recognized in earnings were $340,000 and were shown as a reduction in total noninterest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2009.  

Noninterest expense decreased $397,000, or 4.3 percent, year-over-year.  For the second quarter of fiscal 2010, compensation and employee benefits decreased $689,000, or 11.8 percent, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2009.  Performance-based incentive pay decreased $337,000 due to a reduction in performance outcomes. Net healthcare costs decreased $634,000, to $311,000, the result of a reduction in specific high dollar claims from the prior year.  FDIC insurance premiums increased $213,000, to $335,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2010, versus fiscal 2009.  

Credit Quality

The ratio of nonperforming loans and leases to total loans and leases as of December 31, 2009 was 1.79 percent, compared to 1.32 percent as of June 30, 2009.  The increase in the ratio at December 31, 2009 versus June 30, 2009 was affected primarily by an increase of $3.3 million in accruing loans and leases delinquent more than 90 days, substantially attributable to one commercial relationship from the first quarter of fiscal 2010 and four agricultural relationships from the second quarter of fiscal 2010.  In addition, nonaccruing loans and leases increased by $285,000 since June 30, 2009.  Net loan and lease charge-offs in the amount of $415,000 were recorded for the quarter ended December 31, 2009, compared to net recoveries of $2.0 million for the comparable period last year.  The Company incurred a provision for losses on loans and leases of $424,000 for the second quarter of fiscal 2010; no provision for loan losses was recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2009 due to a large recovery of a previously charged off loan, which increased the allowance for loan and lease losses to an adequate amount.

"We are working through two credits that continue to make up a significant part of our non-performing loans," said Darrel Posegate, President of Home Federal Bank.  "We are seeing good progress in returning these credits to performing status.  Our loan portfolio is still performing favorably and we will continue to be diligent in monitoring the levels of required reserves for the risks inherent in our loans."

Nonaccruing loans and leases increased $285,000 to $9.7 million at December 31, 2009 compared to $9.4 million at June 30, 2009.  One agricultural relationship comprised most of the total nonaccruing loans and leases, consisting of one loan of $32,000, which is secured by one- to four-family real estate, one loan of $740,000, which is secured by agricultural real estate, and four loans totaling $6.5 million, which are secured by agricultural business assets.  The remaining loans and leases included in nonaccruing loans and leases at December 31, 2009 were 12 loans totaling $701,000, which are secured by one- to four-family real estate, one loan of $153,000, which is secured by commercial real estate, seven loans totaling $352,000, which are secured by commercial business assets, 26 leases totaling $742,000, which are secured by equipment, and 29 loans totaling $489,000, which are secured by consumer assets.    

Commercial real estate loans 30 days and greater past due were 0.34% at December 31, 2009, compared to 0.61% at December 31, 2008. "We are aware of the national concerns over high delinquency rates for commercial real estate," Posegate said.  "Our loan portfolio has been performing well due to the economic conditions in our market and our underwriting criterion.  We do not currently expect a significant increase in the level of commercial real estate delinquencies and subsequent charge-offs as our markets go through the projected economic recovery."  

Balance Sheet Performance

Loans and leases receivable as of December 31, 2009 totaled $819.0 million, a decrease of $32.2 million from June 30, 2009.  Since June 30, 2009, one-to-four-family, commercial business and real estate, and consumer indirect loans decreased $9.7 million, $27.7 million and $7.5 million, respectively, while construction loans increased $10.1 million during this period.

"Loan growth during this year has slowed primarily due to less utilization of lines of credit by our customers," said Hage.  "While total lines available to our business customers have increased 6% year- over-year, advances for business credit lines are down 24%.  Our customers are understandably cautious about the economy and the lower utilization rate reflects this reality."

The Company holds six pooled trust preferred securities totaling $9.7 million in its investment portfolio that are currently impaired under applicable accounting rules.  In accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board guidance, the Company determined the fair value of these securities under the assumption they were sold at the end of the quarter in an orderly transaction that was not a forced liquidation or a distressed sale.  The fair value of the trust preferred securities was recorded at $4.2 million, or 33% of par as of December 31, 2009.

The Company's $9.7 million of pooled trust preferred securities have been downgraded below investment grade by Moody's.  The Company has performed an analysis to determine if any of the securities have a credit loss by estimating if any of the cash flows are not expected to be received as contracted.  Based upon the current quarter analysis, three pools incurred other-than-temporary impairment credit losses totaling $340,000, which was recorded as a net impairment loss recognized in earnings.  In the current fiscal quarter the Company recognized $1.3 million on the balance sheet in other comprehensive income, with $340,000 of credit losses recognized through earnings for these three securities.  

Deposits as of December 31, 2009 totaled $863.4 million, an increase of $25.5 million from the balance at June 30, 2009.  During the current fiscal year, public fund account balances decreased $25.9 million due to typical seasonal fluctuations.  In-market certificates of deposit increased $19.8 million, to $421.1 million from $401.3 million for the fiscal year, while out-of-market certificates of deposits decreased $2.4 million to $18.6 million at December 31, 2009.  

Stockholders' equity as of December 31, 2009 totaled $92.3 million, an increase of $23.6 million from the balance at June 30, 2009.  This increase was primarily attributed to the public equity offering in November 2009.  The resulting additional capital increased the tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio to 7.46 percent at December 31, 2009 versus 5.44 percent at June 30, 2009, which represents a stronger capital position from the previous fiscal year end.  In addition, the total risk-based capital ratio for Home Federal Bank increased to 11.84 percent from 11.05 percent during this comparable period.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

The Company announced it will pay a quarterly cash dividend of 11.25 cents per common share for the second quarter of the 2010 fiscal year.  The dividend will be paid on February 12, 2010 to stockholders of record on February 5, 2010.  

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). "Adjusted Earnings," "Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share" and "Adjusted Revenue," which exclude other-than-temporary impairment charges and net gain on the sale of securities (as applicable) are non-GAAP financial measures.  The Company believes Adjusted Earnings, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share and Adjusted Revenue are useful to investors because it allows for greater transparency, facilitates comparison to prior periods and peer results and assists in forecasting performance for future periods.  The Company further believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures will permit investors to assess the Company's core operating results on the same basis as management.  These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, not a substitute for or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  As other companies may use different calculations for these measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  A reconciliation of the Non-GAAP measures of Adjusted Earnings, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share and Adjusted Revenue to the GAAP measures of earnings, diluted earnings per share and revenue is set forth at the end of this press release.  See "Non-GAAP Disclosure Reconciliation" at the end of this press release.

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

(2)  Includes federal funds sold and Federal Home Loan Bank stock.

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

(4)  Percentages for the six months ended December 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008 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.  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.
