Monday, July 30, 2012

Capitol Federal Financial, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results08:30 EDT Monday, July 30, 2012TOPEKA, Kan., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Capitol Federal Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: CFFN) (the "Company") announced results today for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.  Detailed results for the quarter will be available in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on or about August 3, 2012 and posted on our website, http://ir.capfed.com.  Highlights for the quarter include:net income of $18.7 million, repurchased 7,459,209 shares of common stock at an average price of $11.75 per share, basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.12, net interest margin of 2.00%, paid dividends of $11.9 million, and equity to total assets ratio of 19.5% at June 30, 2012.Comparison of Operating Results for the Quarters Ended June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the Company recognized net income of $18.7 million, compared to net income of $19.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  The $642 thousand, or 3.3%, decrease in net income was due primarily to a decrease in net interest income of $1.3 million, or 2.7%, and an increase in other expenses of $936 thousand, or 4.3%, partially offset by a decrease in the provision for credit losses of $1.5 million.The net interest margin decreased six basis points, from 2.06% for the prior quarter to 2.00% for the current quarter, due primarily to a decrease in the weighted average yield on loans, partially offset by a decrease in the cost of funds, specifically the certificate of deposit portfolio and Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances. Total interest and dividend income for the current quarter was $80.6 million compared to $83.3 million for the prior quarter.  The $2.7 million, or 3.2%, decrease was primarily a result of decreases in interest income on loans receivable and investment securities.Interest income on loans receivable was $57.5 million for the current quarter, compared to $59.8 million for the prior quarter.  The $2.3 million, or 3.7%, decrease was due primarily to a 16 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield to 4.41% for the current quarter.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due to loan endorsements and refinances, along with originations and purchases at rates that were lower than the average rate of the existing loan portfolio.  Interest income on investment securities decreased $332 thousand, or 8.1%, primarily due to an eight basis point decrease in the average yield to 1.23% for the current quarter.  The decrease in the average yield was due primarily to a decrease in discount accretion on trust preferred securities as compared to the prior quarter, as well as to the maturity of securities late during the prior quarter with yields greater than the average yield on the existing portfolio.Total interest expense decreased $1.3 million, or 3.8%, to $34.5 million for the current quarter from $35.8 million for the prior quarter.  The decrease in interest expense was due to a $767 thousand, or 6.5%, decrease in interest expense on deposits, and to a $584 thousand, or 2.9%, decrease in interest expense on FHLB advances.  Interest expense on deposits was $11.1 million for the current quarter, compared to $11.8 million for the prior quarter.  The $767 thousand decrease in interest expense on deposits was due primarily to a decrease of 11 basis points in the average rate paid on the certificate of deposit portfolio, from 1.64% for the prior quarter to 1.53% for the current quarter, as the portfolio continued to reprice to lower market rates.  The average rate paid on total deposits decreased eight basis points, to 0.97%, during the quarter.Interest expense on FHLB advances was $19.9 million for the current quarter, compared to $20.4 million for the prior quarter.  The $584 thousand decrease in interest expense was due to a decrease of nine basis points in the average rate paid to 3.16% for the current quarter.  The decrease in the average rate paid for the current quarter was due to a full quarter impact of $200.0 million of FHLB advances that were refinanced and $150.0 million that were renewed to lower current market rates, both in the prior quarter.The Bank did not record a provision for credit losses during the current quarter, compared to a provision of $1.5 million for the prior quarter, due to the continued improvement in the performance of our loan portfolio and a continued decline in the level of charge-offs.  Loans 90 or more days delinquent decreased $3.6 million, or 14.3%, from $25.3 million at March 31, 2012 to $21.6 million at June 30, 2012.  Net charge-offs during the current quarter were $782 thousand compared to $1.0 million in the prior quarter, excluding the $3.5 million of specific valuation allowances ("SVAs") charged-off during the prior quarter as a result of implementing a loan charge-off policy change as the requirements for Office of the Comptroller of Currency ("OCC") Call Reports, which Capitol Federal Savings Bank began filing in the prior quarter, do not permit the use of SVAs.   Total other expense was $22.9 million for the current quarter compared to $22.0 million for the prior quarter.  The $936 thousand, or 4.3%, increase between periods was due primarily to a $931 thousand increase in salaries and employee benefits expense.  The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense during the current quarter was due primarily to an increase in payroll expense, officer bonus expense, and stock based compensation expense related to 2012 Equity Incentive Plan grants issued during the current quarter.  Other real estate owned ("OREO") operations expense, net was $780 thousand for the current quarter, compared to $865 thousand for the prior quarter.Income tax expense was $10.7 million for the current quarter, compared to $10.9 million for the prior quarter.  The effective income tax rate for the current quarter was 36.4% compared to 36.0% for the prior quarter.Comparison of Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended June 30, 2012 and 2011Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 was $56.8 million, compared to $21.6 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2011. The $35.2 million increase for the current year was due primarily to the $40.0 million ($26.0 million, net of income tax benefit) contribution to the Capitol Federal Foundation in connection with the second step conversion and stock offering completed in December 2010 (the "corporate reorganization").  Additionally, net interest income increased $14.1 million, or 11.3%, from $124.9 million for the prior year nine month period to $139.0 million for the current year nine month period.  The increase in net interest income was due primarily to a decrease in interest expense of $25.7 million, or 19.0%, partially offset by a decrease in interest income of $11.6 million, or 4.4%.  The net interest margin increased 19 basis points, to 2.01% for the current nine month period.  The increase was largely due to the decrease in interest expense on the certificate of deposit portfolio, FHLB advances, and other borrowings, partially offset by a decrease in interest income on loans receivable.The following table presents selected financial results and performance ratios for the Company for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.  Because of the magnitude and non-recurring nature of the $40.0 million contribution to the Foundation in connection with the corporate reorganization, management believes it is important for comparability purposes to present selected financial results and performance ratios excluding the contribution to the Foundation.  The adjusted financial results and ratios for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 are not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP").  For the Nine Months Ended June 30, 2011June 30, ActualContributionAdjusted (1)2012(GAAP)to Foundation(Non-GAAP)(Dollars in thousands, except per share data)Net income (loss)$56,777$21,637$(26,000)$47,637Operating expenses66,941109,29540,00069,295Basic earnings (loss) per share0.350.13(0.16)0.29Diluted earnings (loss) per share0.350.13(0.16)0.29Return on average assets (annualized)0.80%0.31%(0.37)%0.68%Return on average equity (annualized)3.941.72(2.07)3.79Operating expense ratio0.951.550.570.98Efficiency ratio42.52%76.20%27.89%48.31%(1) The adjusted financial results and ratios are not presented in accordance with GAAP as the amounts and ratios exclude the effect of the contribution to the Foundation, net of income tax benefit. The contribution to the Foundation of $26.0 million takes into account the $14.0 million of income tax benefit associated with the $40.0 million contribution.Total interest and dividend income for the current nine month period was $248.7 million compared to $260.3 million for the prior year nine month period.  The $11.6 million, or 4.4%, decrease was primarily a result of a decrease in interest income on loans receivable of $11.9 million.Interest income on loans receivable was $178.0 million for the current nine month period, compared to $189.9 for the prior year nine month period.  The $11.9 million, or 6.3%, decrease in interest income on loans receivable was the result of a 38 basis point decrease in the average yield to 4.55% for the current nine month period, slightly offset by an increase of $76.8 million in the average balance of the portfolio.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due to a significant amount of loan endorsements and refinances at current market rates, along with originations and purchases at current market rates, which were lower than the average yield of the existing portfolio.  Interest income on mortgage-backed securities ("MBS") was $54.7 million for the current nine month period, compared to $52.4 million for the prior year nine month period.  The $2.3 million increase in interest income on MBS was a result of a $510.8 million increase in the average balance of the portfolio, partially offset by a decrease of 62 basis points in the weighted average yield to 2.96% for the current nine month period.  The increase in the average balance was a result of purchases funded primarily by the proceeds from the corporate reorganization and partially from cash flows from the investment securities portfolio.  The weighted average yield decreased between the two periods due to purchases of MBS at market rates which were at a lower average yield than the existing portfolio between the two periods.  Interest income on investment securities was $12.5 million for the current nine month period, compared to $14.6 million for the prior year nine month period.  The $2.1 million decrease was due to a decrease in the average balance of $285.3 million, partially offset by an increase in the weighted average yield of five basis points to 1.29% for the current nine month period.  The decrease in the average balance was due to calls and maturities not being replaced in their entirety; the cash flows were instead used to fund MBS purchases and repurchase common stock.  Interest expense decreased $25.7 million, or 19.0%, to $109.7 million for the current nine month period, from $135.4 million for the prior year period.  The decrease in interest expense was due to a decrease in interest expense on deposits of $13.3 million, or 27.1%, other borrowings of $7.4 million, or 39.4%, and FHLB advances of $5.0 million, or 7.4%.  Interest expense on deposits decreased $13.3 million to $35.7 million for the current nine month period, from $49.0 million for the prior year nine month period due primarily to a 42 basis point decrease in the average rate paid on the certificate of deposit portfolio, to 1.65%, as the portfolio continued to reprice to lower market rates, as well as a $195.8 million decrease in the average balance of the portfolio.  The decrease in the average balance was due primarily to a decrease in certificates with original term-to-maturity of 18 to 35 months, as well as the maturity and payout of one retail certificate of deposit related to a legal settlement to which the Bank was not a party.  The decreases were partially offset by an increase in certificates with original term-to-maturity of 36 months or greater. Additionally, the average rate paid on all of our other categories of deposits decreased as well.  The average rate paid on our money market portfolio decreased 22 basis points to an average rate of 0.33% for the current nine month period, and the savings portfolio decreased 35 basis points to an average rate of 0.17% for the current nine month period.Interest expense on FHLB advances decreased $5.0 million to $62.6 million for the current nine month period, from $67.6 million for the prior year nine month period due to a decrease of 45 basis points in the average rate paid, from 3.80% for the prior year nine month period to 3.35% for the current nine month period.  The decrease in the average rate paid was due primarily to advances that were renewed/prepaid between the two period ends.  The decrease in interest expense was partially offset by an increase of $122.9 million in the average balance of FHLB advances as some maturing repurchase agreements were replaced with advances as the rates on the advances were more favorable than comparable repurchase agreements.  Additionally, $76.0 million of advances with a weighted average contractual rate of 5.31% matured and were not renewed.Interest expense on other borrowings decreased $7.4 million to $11.4 million for the current nine month period, from $18.8 million for the prior year nine month period due primarily to a $245.4 million decrease in the average balance.  The decrease in the average balance was due primarily to $200.0 million of repurchase agreements maturing between periods, some of which were replaced with FHLB advances, and $50.0 million of which was not replaced.The Bank recorded a provision for credit losses of $2.4 million in the prior year nine month period, compared to a provision for credit losses of $2.0 million in the current nine month period.  The provision for credit loss amount in the current nine month period was composed of the replenishment of allowance for credit losses ("ACL") for $1.0 million of charge-offs, primarily on bulk purchased loans, while the remaining $1.0 million was primarily related to the increase in and/or establishment of ACL on new delinquent and classified loans and adjustments to the formula analysis model in the first quarter of the current fiscal year.Total other expenses for the current nine month period were $66.9 million, compared to $109.3 million in the prior year nine month period.  The $42.4 million, or 38.8%, decrease was due primarily to a $40.0 million cash contribution to the Foundation in connection with the corporate reorganization in December 2010.  Other expenses, net decreased $1.4 million, or 13.6%, primarily due to an impairment and valuation allowance taken on the mortgage-servicing rights asset in the prior year nine month period and a decrease in expenses related to OREO operations, net.  Expenses related to OREO operations, net in the current nine month period was $2.3 million compared to $2.6 million in the prior year nine month period.  Over the past 12 months, OREO properties were owned by the Bank, on average, for approximately six months before they were sold.Income tax expense for the current nine month period was $31.7 million compared to $10.1 million in the prior year nine month period.  The increase in income tax expense between the periods was primarily a result of the $40.0 million contribution to the Foundation in the prior year nine month period, which resulted in $14.0 million of income tax benefit, along with overall higher pretax income in the current period.  The effective tax rate for the current nine month period was 35.8% compared to 31.8% in the prior year nine month period.  The difference in the effective tax rate between periods was due primarily to a $686 thousand tax return to tax provision adjustment in the prior year nine month period.  Excluding that adjustment, the effective income tax rate would have been 34.0% for the prior year nine month period.  Additionally, the effective tax rate in the prior year nine month period included higher deductible expenses that were associated with the Employee Stock Ownership Plan ("ESOP"), due to the new ESOP loan and the $0.60 per share welcome dividend paid in March 2011.   CAPITOL FEDERAL FINANCIAL, INC.

months ended March 31, 2012, and nine month ended June 30, 2011.Financial Condition as of June 30, 2012 AssetsTotal assets decreased $30.2 million, from $9.45 billion at September 30, 2011 to $9.42 billion at June 30, 2012, due primarily to a $150.3 million decrease in the securities portfolio, partially offset by an increase of $60.3 million in loans receivable and an increase in cash and cash equivalents of $51.9 million.  During the current fiscal year, the Company used proceeds from maturing investment securities to repurchase $113.7 million, or 9,658,309 shares, of common stock.  At June 30, 2012, the Company had $274.9 million on deposit with the Bank and $120.4 million in investment securities with a weighted average life ("WAL") of 0.3 years.  The net loans receivable portfolio increased $60.3 million, or at an annualized rate of 1.6%, to $5.21 billion at June 30, 2012, from $5.15 billion at September 30, 2011.  The increase in loans receivable was due primarily to an increase in the one- to four-family portfolio as a result of originations and correspondent loan purchases.The following table presents the principal balance of delinquent and non-performing loans, OREO and related ratios as of the dates presented.  In accordance with the OCC Call Report requirements, troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs") that were either nonaccrual or did not receive a credit evaluation prior to the restructuring and have not made six consecutive monthly payments per the restructured loan terms are reported as nonaccrual loans at June 30, 2012.  This change occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2012, as it was the first quarter the Bank was required to file a Call Report.  June 30, 2012September 30, 2011(Dollars in thousands)Loans 30 to 89 days

restructured terms but have not made six consecutive monthly payments per the restructured loan terms.LiabilitiesTotal liabilities increased $76.5 million, from $7.51 billion at September 30, 2011 to $7.59 billion at June 30, 2012.  The increase in total liabilities was due primarily a $97.3 million increase in deposits.  The increase in the deposit portfolio was led by a $55.8 million increase in the checking portfolio and a $32.9 million increase in the money market portfolio.  Additionally, during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, a $150.0 million repurchase agreement matured and was replaced with a $150.0 million fixed-rate FHLB advance, which accounts for the majority of the balance changes in both portfolios.Stockholders' equityStockholders' equity decreased $106.7 million, from $1.94 billion at September 30, 2011 to $1.83 billion at June 30, 2012.  The decrease was due primarily to the repurchase of common stock for $113.7 million and dividends paid of $52.4 million, partially offset by net income of $56.8 million.The $52.4 million of dividend payments consisted of three quarterly dividends totaling $36.2 million and a special dividend of $16.2 million related to fiscal year 2011 earnings, per the Company's dividend policy.  Dividend payments depend upon a number of factors including the Company's financial condition and results of operations, the Bank's 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.  On July 20, 2012, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per share, payable on August 17, 2012.  The following table presents the balance of stockholders' equity and related information as of the dates

nine months ended June 30, 2012.  These charge-offs did not impact the provision for credit losses, and therefore had no additional income statement impact, as the amounts were expensed in previous

proprietary interest rate risk model, which takes into account prepayment speeds.(3)The WAL of transactional (checking, savings, and money market) deposits is derived from a proprietary interest rate risk model and based upon historical analysis of decay rates on deposit accounts.(4)Rate presented is contractual rate.At June 30, 2012, the Bank's one-year gap between the amount of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities projected to reprice was $1.53 billion, or 16.5% of total assets.  If we experience the magnitude of asset repricing as indicated with the one-year gap, downward pressure may be placed on our net interest margin.  Should interest rates rise, the amount of interest-earning assets expected to reprice will likely decrease from estimated levels as borrowers and agency debt issuers will have less economic incentive to modify their costs of borrowings.  If interest rates were to increase 200 basis points, the Bank's one-year gap would be negative $125.0 million, or (1.34)% of total assets.  The change from a positive gap amount at June 30, 2012 to a negative gap amount in the +200 basis points scenario is due to a significant decrease in the amount of assets expected to reprice if rates were to increase 200 basis points.  The amount of interest-bearing liabilities expected to reprice in a given period is not usually impacted by changes in interest rates because the Bank's borrowings and certificates 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 mortgages and MBS, both of which have the option to prepay without a fee paid by the contract holder.  As interest rates decrease, borrowers have an economic incentive to refinance or endorse their loans to the lower market interest rates.  This was evident by the volume of mortgages that were endorsed or refinanced during fiscal year 2011 and continuing into fiscal year 2012 as a result of the decrease in market interest rates.  In addition, cash flows from the Bank's callable investment securities are anticipated to continue in the coming year as the issuers of these securities will likely exercise their option to call the securities in order to issue new debt securities at lower market rates.  Any decrease in the net interest margin due to interest-earning assets repricing downward will likely be partially offset by a further decrease in our cost of funds.Average Balance Sheet  The following tables present the average balances of our assets, liabilities and stockholders' equity and the related annualized 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 June 30, 2012.  Average yields are derived by dividing annualized income by the average balance of the related assets and 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 yields and rates include amortization of fees, costs, premiums and discounts which are considered adjustments to yields/rates. Yields on tax-exempt securities were not calculated on a tax-equivalent basis.AtFor the Nine Months Ended June 30, 2012June 30, 2012June 30, 2011AverageInterest  AverageInterest  Yield/OutstandingEarned/Yield/OutstandingEarned/Yield/RateBalancePaidRateBalancePaidRateAssets:(Dollars in thousands)Interest-earning assets:Loans receivable(1)4.38%$5,215,165$178,0074.55%$5,138,334$189,8904.93%MBS(2)2.862,460,91254,6862.961,950,10552,3793.58Investment securities(2)(3)1.231,292,58212,5351.291,577,91414,6211.24Capital stock of FHLB3.43128,8593,3133.43123,1462,7102.94Cash and cash equivalents0.25110,5192050.25364,1956710.25Total interest-earning assets(1)(2)3.489,208,037248,7463.609,153,694260,2713.79Other noninterest-earning assets234,735234,079Total assets$9,442,772$9,387,773Liabilities and stockholders' equity:Interest-bearing liabilities:Checking 0.08%$562,619$3310.08%$514,396$3300.09%Savings0.14257,4623310.17243,1229430.52Money market 0.301,091,6022,6750.331,011,4164,1960.55Certificates 1.502,615,32332,3531.652,811,16543,4972.07Total deposits0.954,527,00635,6901.054,580,09948,9661.43FHLB advances(4)3.172,499,91562,6413.352,377,06367,6383.80Repurchase agreements3.83388,17511,3873.85596,68517,9433.97Other borrowings--------36,9178553.05Total borrowings3.252,888,09074,0283.423,010,66586,4363.83Total interest-bearing liabilities1.837,415,096109,7181.977,590,764135,4022.38Other noninterest-bearing liabilities107,572120,361Stockholders' equity1,920,1041,676,648Total liabilities and stockholders' equity$9,442,772$9,387,773(Continued)AtFor the Nine Months Ended June 30, 2012June 30, 2012June 30, 2011AverageInterest  AverageInterest  Yield/OutstandingEarned/Yield/OutstandingEarned/Yield/RateBalancePaidRateBalancePaidRate(Dollars in thousands)Net interest income(5)$139,028$124,869Net interest rate spread(6)1.65%1.63%1.41%Net interest-earning assets$1,792,941$1,562,930Net interest margin(7)2.011.82Ratio of interest-earning assetsto interest-bearing liabilities1.241.21Selected performance ratios:Return on average assets (annualized)0.80%0.31%Return on average equity (annualized)3.941.72Average equity to average assets20.3317.86Operating expense ratio0.951.55Efficiency ratio42.5276.20(Concluded)(1)Calculated net of unearned loan fees and deferred costs, and undisbursed loan funds.  Loans that are 90 or more days delinquent are included in the loans receivable average balance with a yield of zero percent.
