Capitol Federal Financial, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results

Capitol Federal Financial, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results

09:00 EDT Monday, April 29, 2013

TOPEKA, Kan., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Capitol Federal® Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: CFFN) (the "Company") announced results today for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  Detailed results will be available in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on or about May 6, 2013 and posted on our website, http://ir.capfed.com.  For best viewing results, please view this release in Portable Document Format (PDF) on our website.

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • net income of $17.7 million,
  • basic and diluted earnings per average share outstanding of $0.12,
  • net interest margin of 1.97%,
  • repurchased 2,813,700 shares of common stock at an average price of $11.85 per share, and
  • paid dividends of $11.0 million.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Quarters Ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012

Net income increased $152 thousand, or 0.9%, from $17.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 to $17.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  The net interest margin decreased four basis points, from 2.01% for the prior quarter, to 1.97% for the current quarter primarily as a result of continued downward pressure on loan and security yields.  Decreases in the cost of funds tempered the decrease in the net interest margin, but were not enough to fully offset the impact of decreasing asset yields. 

Interest and Dividend Income

The weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets decreased nine basis points from the prior quarter to 3.33% for the current quarter and the average balance of interest-earning assets decreased $73.3 million between the two periods.  The decrease in the weighted average balance between the two periods was primarily in lower yielding assets; specifically the investment securities portfolio.  The average balance of the loan portfolio increased between the two periods; however, not enough to overcome the impact of the reduction in the loan portfolio yield between the two periods.

The following table presents the components of interest and dividend income for the time periods presented, along with the change in dollars and percent.  The decrease in interest income on loans receivable and mortgage-backed securities ("MBS") was due primarily to a decrease in the weighted average yield of each portfolio.  The decrease in interest income on investment securities was due primarily to a decrease in the average balance of the portfolio between periods.

The decrease in interest income on loans receivable was due to a 15 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield of the portfolio to 4.01% for the current quarter, partially offset by a $59.2 million increase in the average balance of the portfolio.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due to the continued downward repricing of the existing portfolio due to endorsements and refinances, as well as to the origination and purchase of loans at rates less than the weighted average rate of the existing portfolio.  Also contributing to the decrease in the weighted average yield was a decrease in deferred fee amortization due primarily to a decrease in loan endorsement and refinance activity between periods. 

The decrease in interest income on MBS was due primarily to a 10 basis point decrease in the average yield of the portfolio, from 2.60% for the prior quarter to 2.50% for the current quarter, and partially due to a $24.8 million decrease in the average balance of the portfolio.  The decrease in the average yield of the portfolio was due primarily to purchases of MBS during the quarter with yields less than the average yield on the existing portfolio, and the decrease in the average balance was due primarily to the timing of when purchases were made. 

The decrease in interest income on investment securities was due primarily to a $113.1 million decrease in the average balance of the portfolio as a result of cash flows from calls and maturities not being replaced in their entirety; rather, the proceeds were used, in part, to fund loan activity and repay maturing repurchase agreements.

Interest Expense

The weighted average rate paid on total interest-bearing liabilities decreased five basis points from the prior quarter to 1.66% for the current quarter and the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased $70.0 million between the two periods. The increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities was in lower rate deposit products while the average balance of certificates of deposit decreased between the two periods.

The following table presents the components of interest expense for the time periods presented, along with the change in dollars and percent. The decrease in interest expense on FHLB advances and deposits was due primarily to a decrease in the weighted average rate paid on the portfolios, as well as to there being fewer days during the current quarter as compared to the prior quarter.

The weighted average rate paid on FHLB advances decreased five basis points, from 2.92% for the prior quarter to 2.87% for the current quarter.  The decrease in the weighted average rate paid on FHLB advances was due primarily to the current quarter including the full impact of the renewal of a $100.0 million advance during the prior quarter, which had an effective rate of 4.85%, to a new advance with a term of four years and a fixed contractual rate of 0.78%.  The decrease in the weighted average rate paid on the deposit portfolio was due primarily to a decrease in the weighted average rate paid on the certificate of deposit portfolio.  The weighted average rate paid on the certificate of deposit portfolio decreased four basis points, from 1.41% for the prior quarter to 1.37% for the current quarter. 

Provision for Credit Losses

The Bank did not record a provision for credit losses during the current quarter, compared to $233 thousand recorded during the prior quarter.  The overall performance of our loan portfolio continued to improve during the current quarter as evidenced by the decline in net charge-offs and loans 90 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure.  Net charge-offs during the current quarter were $405 thousand compared to $856 thousand in the prior quarter.  Included in the current quarter and prior quarter were net charge-off amounts of $3 thousand and $369 thousand, respectively, related to loans that were discharged in a prior fiscal year under Chapter 7 bankruptcy that must be, in accordance with Office of Comptroller of Currency ("OCC") regulations, evaluated for collateral value loss, even if they are current.  Loans 90 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure decreased $865 thousand, or 4.5%, from $19.0 million at December 31, 2012 to $18.2 million at March 31, 2013.

(6.2)%

The decrease in regulatory and outside services expense was due primarily to the timing of fees paid for external audit and tax preparation services. The decrease in other expenses, net was due primarily to a $638 thousand decrease in other real estate owned ("OREO") operations expense, from $670 thousand for the prior quarter, to $32 thousand for the current quarter, along with a decrease in expenses related to our low-income housing partnerships.  Over the past 12 months, OREO properties were owned by Capitol Federal Savings Bank (the "Bank"), on average, for approximately five months before they were sold.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $9.3 million for the current quarter compared to $8.9 million for the prior quarter.  The effective income tax rate for the current quarter was 34.5% compared to 33.5% for the prior quarter.  The difference in the effective income tax rate between quarters was due primarily to items impacting the prior quarter, largely the filing of the Company's income tax returns.  Management anticipates the effective tax rate for fiscal year 2013 will be approximately 34%, based on fiscal year 2013 estimates as of March 31, 2013.  This rate is lower than the prior year rate of 35.8% due primarily to higher deductible expenses associated with the Employee Stock Ownership Plan "ESOP", and higher tax credits related to our low income housing partnerships.  Additionally, pre-tax income is anticipated to be lower than the prior year, due primarily to the items outlined in other expenses in the "Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended March 31, 2013 and 2012" discussion below, which results in all items impacting the income tax rate to have a larger impact on the overall effective tax rate than in fiscal year 2012.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended March 31, 2013 and 2012

For the six month period ended March 31, 2013, the Company recognized net income of $35.3 million, compared to net income of $38.1 million for the six month period ended March 31, 2012.  The $2.8 million, or 7.4%, decrease in net income was due primarily to an increase in other expenses and a decrease in net interest income, partially offset by a decrease in income tax expense and provision for credit losses.  The net interest margin decreased three basis points, from 2.02% for the prior year six month period to 1.99% for the current six month period, primarily as a result of a decrease in loan and security yields which more than offset the benefit received from a decrease in the cost of funds between the two periods. 

Interest and Dividend Income

The weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets decreased 27 basis points from the prior year six month period to 3.38% for the current six month period and the average balance of interest-earning assets decreased $154.6 million from the prior year six month period.  The decrease in the weighted average balance between the two periods was primarily in lower yielding assets; specifically the investment securities portfolio, where the proceeds from securities called or maturing not reinvested in the portfolio were used largely to repurchase stock, pay dividends to stockholders, and fund loan activity.  The average balance of the loan portfolio increased between the two periods; however, not enough to overcome the impact of the reduction in the loan portfolio yield.

The following table presents the components of interest and dividend income for the time periods presented, along with the change in dollars and percent. The decrease in interest income on loans receivable and MBS was due primarily to a decrease in the weighted average yield of each portfolio.  The decrease in interest income on investment securities was due primarily to a decrease in the average balance of the portfolio between periods.

The average yield on the loans receivable portfolio decreased 54 basis points, from 4.62% for the prior year six month period to 4.08% for the current six month period.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due to the continued downward repricing of the existing portfolio due to endorsements and refinances, as well as to the origination and purchase of loans at rates less than the weighted average rate of the existing portfolio.  The decrease in interest income on loans receivable resulting from the decrease in the average yield was partially offset by a $439.9 million increase in the average balance of the portfolio, which was primarily a result of a bulk loan purchase during the quarter ended September 30, 2012.  The average yield on the MBS portfolio decreased 48 basis points, from 3.03% during the prior year six month period to 2.55% for the current six month period.  The decrease in the average yield was due primarily to purchases of MBS between periods with yields less than the average yield on the existing portfolio.  The funds for these purchases were provided primarily from repayments and prepayments of higher yielding MBS.  The decrease in interest income on investment securities was due primarily to a $448.6 million decrease in the average balance of the portfolio, of which $257.1 million related to securities at the holding company.  The cash flows from calls and maturities of investment securities that were not reinvested in the portfolio were used to repurchase stock, pay dividends to stockholders, and fund loan activity. 

Interest Expense

The weighted average rate paid on total interest-bearing liabilities decreased 35 basis points from the prior year six month period to 1.68% for the current six month period and the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased $67.0 million from the prior year six month period.  The increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities was largely in lower rate deposit products while the average balance of certificates of deposit decreased between the two periods.

The following table presents the components of interest expense for the time periods presented, along with the change in dollars and percent. The decrease in interest expense on FHLB advances and deposits was due primarily to a decrease in the weighted average rate paid on the portfolios.  The decrease in interest expense on repurchase agreements was due primarily to a decrease in the average balance between periods.

The weighted average rate paid on FHLB advances decreased 54 basis points, from 3.44% for the prior year six month period to 2.90% for the current six month period.  The decrease in the average rate paid was due to the renewal of advances between periods to lower rates, as well as to the prepayment of an advance during the second quarter of fiscal year 2012.  The decrease in the weighted average rate paid on the deposit portfolio was primarily due a decrease in the weighted average rate paid on the certificate of deposit and money market portfolios as the portfolios continued to reprice to lower market rates.  The weighted average rate paid on the certificate of deposit portfolio decreased 32 basis points, from 1.71% for the prior year six month period to 1.39% for the current six month period.  The weighted average rate paid on the money market portfolio decreased 12 basis points, from 0.34% for the prior year six month period to 0.22% for the current six month period.  The decrease in interest expense on repurchase agreements was due primarily to a $39.5 million decrease in the average balance between periods as a result of maturing agreements not being renewed; rather, the agreements were replaced with FHLB advances.

Provision for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses for the current six month period was $233 thousand, compared to $2.0 million for the prior year six month period.  The decrease in the provision for credit losses between periods was a result of the improvement in the performance of our loan portfolio, as evidenced by the decline in net charge-offs and loans 90 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure. Net charge-offs during the current six month period were $1.3 million, of which $372 thousand related to loans that were discharged in a prior fiscal year under Chapter 7 bankruptcy that must be, in accordance with OCC regulations, evaluated for collateral value loss, even if they are current.  Net charge-offs during the prior year six month period were $4.9 million, of which $3.5 million was related to the implementation of a loan charge-off policy during January 2012.  OCC Call Report requirements do not permit the use of specific valuation allowances, which the Bank was previously utilizing for potential loan losses, as permitted by the Bank's previous regulator.  Loans 90 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure decreased $7.1 million, or 28.1%, from $25.3 million at March 31, 2012 to $18.2 million at March 31, 2013.

The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense was due primarily to compensation expense on unallocated ESOP shares related to the $0.52 True Blue® dividend paid in December 2012, along with stock option and restricted stock grants in May 2012 and September 2012.  The increase in occupancy expense was due largely to an increase in depreciation expense and real estate taxes associated with the remodel of our home office.  The increase in information technology and communications expense was primarily related to maintenance and licensing expenses.  The increase in regulatory and outside services was due largely to professional services, along with the timing of fees paid for external audit and tax preparation services.  The increase in deposit and loan transaction costs was primarily related to loan activity.  The decrease in other expenses, net, was due primarily to a decrease in OREO operations expense, a decrease in office supplies and related expenses, and a recovery of valuation allowance expense on the mortgage-servicing rights asset compared to an impairment expense in the prior year. 

We currently anticipate the following increases in other expenses during the full fiscal year 2013, as compared to the full fiscal year 2012:  (1) a $4.8 million increase in salaries and employee benefits due primarily to an estimated $2.7 million in compensation expense on unallocated ESOP shares as a result of the True Blue® and special year-end dividends paid and $1.4 million resulting from a full year's impact of equity plan awards made in May 2012 and September 2012; (2) a $2.6 million increase in information technology and communications expense and occupancy expense as a result of an increase in licensing and maintenance expenses related to upgrades to our information technology infrastructure and an increase in depreciation expense associated with the remodel of our home office; and (3) a $1.1 million increase in advertising expense, which is due primarily to media campaigns that were delayed until fiscal year 2013.  We currently anticipate that the preceding increases in other expenses will be partially offset by an estimated $1.0 million decrease in other expenses, net, due primarily to decreases in OREO operations expense.

The final ESOP loan payment associated with the shares acquired in our initial public offering in March 1999 will be made on September 30, 2013.  As a result, salaries and employee benefits expense is currently anticipated to decrease approximately $4.5 million in fiscal year 2014, as compared to fiscal year 2013.  Additionally, we do not currently anticipate additional compensation expense on unallocated ESOP shares in fiscal year 2014, which would result in an additional decrease in salaries and employee benefit expense of $3.0 million, when compared to fiscal year 2013.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $18.2 million for the current six month period compared to $21.0 million for the prior year six month period.  The decrease in expense between periods was due primarily to a decrease in pretax income.  The effective tax rate for the current six month period was 34.0% compared to 35.5% for the prior year six month period.

Financial Condition as of March 31, 2013

Total assets increased $15.4 million, from $9.38 billion at September 30, 2012 to $9.39 billion at March 31, 2013, due primarily to a $107.2 million increase in the loan portfolio and a $97.5 million increase in other assets, partially offset by a $95.6 million decrease in the securities portfolio and a $93.1 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents.  The net increase in the loan portfolio was due primarily to one- to four-family loan originations and correspondent purchases outpacing principal repayments during the current six month period.  As of March 31, 2013, the Bank had 26 active correspondent lending relationships in 21 states.  The increase in other assets was due primarily to a $100.0 million FHLB advance commitment, which settled in early April 2013.  Of the $95.6 million decrease in the securities portfolio, $60.0 million related to securities at the holding company level, the proceeds from which were used to pay dividends to stockholders and repurchase stock.  The remaining cash flows from the securities portfolio which were not reinvested, along with cash were used, in part, to fund loan activity and repay $50 million of repurchase agreements that matured during the current quarter.  At March 31, 2013, Capitol Federal Financial, Inc., at the holding company level, had $206.3 million on deposit at the Bank. 

Economic conditions in the Bank's local market areas have a significant impact on the ability of borrowers to repay loans and the value of the collateral securing these loans.  As of March 2013, the unemployment rate was 5.6% for Kansas and 6.7% for Missouri, compared to the national average of 7.6% based on information from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  The unemployment rate remains low in our market areas, relative to the national average, due to diversified industries within our market areas, primarily in the Kansas City metropolitan statistical area.  Our Kansas City market area, which comprises the largest segment of our loan portfolio and deposit base, has an average household income of approximately $79 thousand per annum, based on 2012 estimates from the American Community Survey, which is a statistical survey by the U.S. Census Bureau.  The average household income in our combined market areas is approximately $68 thousand per annum, with 92% of the population at or above the poverty level, also based on the 2012 estimates from the American Community Survey. The Federal Housing Finance Agency price index for Kansas and Missouri has not experienced significant fluctuations during the past 10 years, unlike other market areas of the United States, which indicates relative stability historically in property values in our local market areas. 

As a portfolio lender focused on delivering outstanding customer service while acquiring quality assets, the ability of our borrowers to repay has always been paramount in our business model.  Although we continue to evaluate the recently issued "qualified mortgage" rules by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, we currently anticipate that the impact to our overall book of business will generally be minimal.  

The following table presents delinquent and non-performing loans, OREO, allowance for credit losses ("ACL") and related ratios as of the dates shown.  In accordance with the OCC Call Report requirements, troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs") that were either nonaccrual at the time of restructuring 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.  During July 2012, the OCC provided guidance to the industry regarding loans that had been discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings where the borrower has not reaffirmed the debt owed to the lender.  The OCC requires that these loans be reported as TDRs and nonaccrual, even if they are current.  Our balance of loans 90 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure continues to improve; however, implementation of the above noted OCC guidance has kept our balance of non-performing loans relatively elevated.  The principal balance of loans required by the OCC to be reported as nonaccrual, even if they are current, was $8.2 million, $12.4 million, and $5.1 million at March 31, 2013, September 30, 2012, and March 31, 2012, respectively.

Represents loans required to be reported as nonaccrual by the OCC regardless of delinquency status.  At March 31, 2013, September 30, 2012, and March 31, 2012, this amount was comprised of $975 thousand, $1.2 million, and $635 thousand, respectively, of loans that were 30 to 89 days delinquent and $7.2 million, $11.2 million, and $4.5 million, respectively, of loans that were current.

Total liabilities increased $178.9 million, from $7.57 billion at September 30, 2012, to $7.75 billion at March 31, 2013 due primarily to a $142.9 million increase in deposits and a $100.0 million FHLB advance commitment, partially offset by the repayment of $50.0 million of repurchase agreements that matured during the current quarter.  The increase in the deposit portfolio was due primarily to an $81.8 million increase in the checking portfolio, a $45.4 million increase in the money market portfolio, and a $20.3 million increase in the savings portfolio, partially offset by a $4.6 million decrease in the certificate of deposit portfolio.  The decrease in the certificate of deposit portfolio was due primarily to a decrease in floating rate certificates of deposit, partially offset by an increase in public unit deposits.  Additionally, fixed-rate retail certificates of deposit decreased slightly and there was a shift in this portfolio from certificates of deposit with a term of 30 months or less to those with a term of 36 months or more, primarily to 36 and 60 month terms. The $100.0 million FHLB advance commitment settled in early April 2013.  The FHLB advance has a six year term and a fixed contractual rate of 1.29%.  Proceeds from the FHLB advance will largely be used to replace the $50.0 million of repurchase agreements that matured and also fund upcoming maturities of repurchase agreements. 

Stockholders' equity decreased $163.5 million, from $1.81 billion at September 30, 2012 to $1.64 billion at March 31, 2013.  The decrease was due primarily to the payment of $125.3 million of dividends and the repurchase of $72.0 million of stock, partially offset by net income of $35.3 million.

The $125.3 million of dividends paid during the current six month period consisted of a $0.52 per share, or $76.5 million, True Blue® dividend, an $0.18 per share, or $26.6 million, special year-end dividend related to fiscal year 2012 earnings, per the Company's dividend policy, and two regular quarterly dividends of $0.075 per share each, totaling $0.15 per share, or $22.2 million.  On April 17, 2013, the Company declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per share, or approximately $10.8 million, payable on May 17, 2013 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 3, 2013.  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.

In December 2011, the Company announced that its Board of Directors approved the repurchase of up to $193.0 million of the Company's common stock.  The Company began repurchasing common stock during the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 and completed the plan during the current quarter, having repurchased 16,360,654 shares at an average price of $11.80 per share.  In November 2012, the Company announced its Board of Directors approved a new $175.0 million stock repurchase program to commence upon the completion of the aforementioned $193.0 million repurchase plan.  As of March 31, 2013, 2,359,430 shares had been repurchased under the new plan at an average price of $11.86 per share, or $28.0 million.  Subsequent to March 31, 2013 and through April 12, 2013, the Company repurchased 343,536 shares at an average price of $11.91 per share.  The new plan, under which $142.9 million remained available as of April 12, 2013, has no expiration date.

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Loan Portfolio

The following table presents information related to the composition of our loan portfolio in terms of dollar amounts and percentages (before deductions for undisbursed loan funds, unearned loan fees and deferred costs, and ACL) as of the dates indicated.  The average rate of the portfolio decreased 21 basis points from September 30, 2012 and 51 basis points from March 31, 2012, to 3.94% at March 31, 2013.  The decrease in the average rates from September 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012 was due primarily to the endorsement and refinance of loans at current market rates, as well as to the origination and purchase of loans between periods with rates less than the average rate of the existing portfolio.

The following table presents the balance, percentage of total one- to four-family loans, weighted average credit score, loan-to-value ("LTV") ratio, and the average balance per loan for our one- to four-family loans at the dates presented.  Credit scores are typically updated during the last month of the quarter and are obtained from a nationally recognized consumer rating agency.  The LTV ratios were based on the current loan balance and either the lesser of the purchase price or original appraisal, or the most recent bank appraisal or broker price opinion.  In most cases, the most recent appraisal was obtained at the time of origination.

The following tables summarize the activity in the loan portfolio for the periods indicated, excluding changes in loans in process, deferred fees, and ACL.  Loans that were paid-off as a result of refinances are included in repayments.  Purchased loans include purchases from correspondent and nationwide lenders.  Loan endorsements are not included in the activity in the following table because a new loan is not generated at the time of the endorsement.  The endorsed balance and rate are, however, included in the ending loan portfolio balance and rate.  During the current quarter, the Bank endorsed $122.1 million of one- to four-family loans, reducing the average rate on those loans by 118 basis points.

Asset Quality

The following tables present loans 30 to 89 days delinquent, non-performing loans, and OREO at the dates indicated.  Non-performing loans are loans that are 90 or more days delinquent or in foreclosure or nonaccrual loans less than 90 days delinquent, but are required to be reported as nonaccrual pursuant to OCC Call Report requirements.  Management believes that it is unlikely the balances of loans 30 to 89 days delinquent, non-performing loans, and OREO will decrease significantly from their current levels, and will likely stay within a range seen during the past year, though no assurance can be given in this regard.

Represents loans required to be reported as nonaccrual by the OCC regardless of delinquency status.  At March 31, 2013, December 31, 2012, September 30, 2012, and March 31, 2012, this amount was comprised of $975 thousand, $1.8 million, $1.2 million, and $635 thousand, respectively, of loans that were 30 to 89 days delinquent and $7.2 million, $7.9 million, $11.2 million, and $4.5 million, respectively, of loans that were current.

(2)

Real estate-related consumer loans where we also hold the first mortgage are included in the one- to four-family category as the underlying collateral is one- to four-family property.

(3)

Other represents a single property the Bank purchased for a potential branch site but now intends to sell.

The following table presents the activity for the ACL and related ratios at the dates and for the periods indicated.  Of the $1.3 million of net charge-offs during the six months ended March 31, 2013, $372 thousand were due to loans that were discharged in a prior fiscal year under Chapter 7 bankruptcy that must be, in accordance with OCC regulations, evaluated for collateral value loss, even if they are current.  In January 2012, management implemented a loan charge-off policy as OCC Call Report requirements do not permit the use of specific valuation allowances ("SVAs"), which the Bank was previously utilizing for potential loan losses, as permitted by the Bank's previous regulator.  As a result of the implementation of the charge-off policy, $3.5 million of SVAs were charged-off during the March 31, 2012 quarter and are reflected in the activity for the related periods below.  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 periods.

Securities Portfolio

The following table presents the distribution of our MBS and investment securities portfolios, at amortized cost, at the dates indicated.  The total securities portfolio increased $41.8 million, or 1.3%, from December 31, 2012 to March 31, 2013 due primarily to purchases of fixed-rate MBS.  Included in the $907.4 million of fixed-rate GSE debentures at September 30, 2012 was $60.0 million of securities at the holding company.  The holding company's securities matured during the December 31, 2012 quarter.  Overall, fixed-rate securities comprised 78% of these portfolios at March 31, 2013.  The majority of the MBS and investment portfolios are composed of securities issued by U.S. government sponsored enterprises ("GSEs").  The weighted average life ("WAL") is the estimated remaining maturity (in years) after three-month historical prepayment speeds and projected call option assumptions have been applied.  Yields on tax-exempt securities are not calculated on a fully taxable equivalent basis.

MBS:  The following tables provide a summary of the activity in our portfolio of MBS for the periods presented.  The yields and WALs for purchases are presented as recorded at the time of purchase.  The yields for the beginning balances are as of the last day of the period previous to the period presented and the yields for the ending balances are as of the last day of the period presented and are generally derived from recent prepayment activity on the securities in the portfolio as of the dates presented.  The beginning and ending WAL is the estimated remaining maturity (in years) after three-month historical prepayment speeds have been applied.  MBS purchased during the six months ended March 31, 2013 were generally comprised of loans with contractual terms-to-maturity of 15 years or less so as to help mitigate exposure to rising interest rates.  The net balance of premiums/(discounts) on our portfolio of MBS was $23.5 million at March 31, 2013.

The following tables present FHLB advance activity, at par, and repurchase agreement activity for the periods shown.  Line of credit activity is excluded from the following table due to the short-term nature of the borrowings.  The effective rate includes the net impact of the amortization of deferred prepayment penalties resulting from the prepayment of certain FHLB advances and deferred gains related to interest rate swaps previously terminated.  Rates on new borrowings are fixed-rate.  The new $100.0 million FHLB advance in the current quarter represents an outstanding FHLB advance commitment at March 31, 2013 that settled in early April 2013.  The new advance has a term of 72 months at a rate of 1.29%.  This replaces $50.0 million of repurchase agreements that matured late during the current quarter which had a weighted average rate of 3.48%.  In early April 2013, $25.0 million of repurchase agreements matured with a rate of 3.33%.  In May 2013, $225.0 million of advances are scheduled to mature with a weighted average rate of 3.86%.  The weighted average maturity ("WAM") is the remaining weighted average contractual term in years.  The beginning and ending WAMs represent the remaining maturity at each date presented.  For new borrowings, the WAMs presented are as of the date of issue.

Average Rates and Lives

The following table presents the weighted average yields/rates and WALs (in years) for major categories of our assets and liabilities as of March 31, 2013.  Yields presented for investment securities and MBS include the amortization of fees, costs, premiums and discounts which are considered adjustments to the yield.  For loans receivable, the stated interest rate is shown, which does not include any adjustments to the yield.  The interest rate presented for borrowings is the effective rate, which includes the net impact of the amortization of deferred prepayment penalties resulting from the prepayment of certain FHLB advances and deferred gains related to interest rate swaps previously terminated.

The WAL of investment securities and MBS is the estimated remaining maturity after three-month historical prepayment speeds and projected call option assumptions have been applied.

(2)

The WAL of the loans receivable portfolio is derived from a proprietary interest rate risk model, which takes into account prepayment speeds.

(3)

The WAL of transaction (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)

Amount includes FHLB advances at par value.

At March 31, 2013, the Bank's one-year gap between the amount of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities projected to reprice was $739.4 million, or 7.9% of total assets, compared to $1.62 billion, or 17.6% of total assets, at December 31, 2012.  If we experience the magnitude of asset repricing as indicated by the one-year gap and interest rates decrease, 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 cost of borrowings.  If interest rates were to increase 200 basis points, as of March 31, 2013, the Bank's one-year gap is projected to be negative $(167.1) million, or (1.8)% of total assets, meaning more liabilities are anticipated to reprice than assets.  This compares to a positive one-year gap of $145.7 million, or 1.6% of total assets, if interest rates were to increase 200 basis points, as of December 31, 2012.  The change in the one-year gap amount in the + 200 basis point scenario between periods is due to a 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 typically impacted by changes in interest rates because the Bank's borrowings and certificate 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 repayments and prepayments on mortgage loans and MBS, both of which include the option to prepay without a fee being 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 years 2011 and 2012 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, due to low market interest rates.  Cash flows from the Bank's callable investment securities are anticipated to continue in the coming year due to the low current market rates as the issuers of these securities will likely exercise their option to call the securities in order to issue new debt securities at the lower market rates.  Any decrease in our net interest margin due to interest-earning assets repricing downward will likely be partially offset by a further decrease in our cost of liabilities.  While the ability to lower the Bank's cost of deposits is somewhat limited by the already low cost of this portfolio, the Bank has $670.0 million of borrowings scheduled to mature in the next 12 months with a weighted average effective rate of 4.06%.

Average Balance Sheets 

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 March 31, 2013.  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 fully taxable equivalent basis.
