CFS Bancorp, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2005 Financial Results

MUNSTER, IN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 20, 2005 -- CFS Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: CITZ) (the Company), the parent of Citizens Financial Services, FSB (the Bank), today reported net income for the third quarter of 2005 of $1.9 million as compared to a $2.8 million net loss reported for the third quarter of 2004. Diluted earnings per share were $0.16 for the third quarter of 2005 compared to a loss per share of $0.24 for the comparable prior year period. The Company's net income for the third quarter of 2005 was adversely affected by a pre-tax charge of $2.9 million ($1.8 million net of tax or $0.14 per diluted share) to interest expense related to the amortization of the deferred premium on the early extinguishment of debt relating to the Company's restructuring of Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) borrowings that occurred during the fourth quarter of 2004. This pre-tax charge in the third quarter of 2005 was more than offset by a $3.4 million ($2.1 million net of tax or $0.17 per diluted share) decrease in interest expense as a result of the lower contractual interest rates on the restructured borrowings combined with the reduction in the average balance of borrowings outstanding.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2005, the Company's net income was $3.2 million as compared to a $1.9 million net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2004. Diluted earnings per share were $0.26 for the nine months ended September 30, 2005 compared to a loss per share of $0.16 for the nine months ended September 30, 2004. The Company's year to date earnings were negatively impacted by a pre-tax charge of $11.6 million ($7.1 million net of tax or $0.59 per diluted share) to interest expense related to the amortization of the deferred premium on the early extinguishment of debt discussed above. This pre-tax charge during the first nine months of 2005 was largely offset by a $10.1 million ($6.2 million net of tax or $0.52 per diluted share) decrease in interest expense as a result of the lower contractual interest rates on the restructured borrowings combined with the reduction in the average balance of borrowings outstanding.

Chairman's Comments

"We are very pleased with the continued improvement in the Company's earnings, net interest margin and efficiency ratio. We have focused our energies on improving earnings and we have been able to achieve this goal even after considering the impact of the debt restructuring completed in 2004. Our non-performing assets have stabilized, and we continue to actively manage these assets while exploring ways to reduce our investment in them," said Thomas F. Prisby, Chairman and CEO.

Mr. Prisby continued, "By achieving the earnings improvement that we have, we are now better positioned to focus on our growth initiatives which strive to deepen relationships with our current customers and build new customer relationships within our existing markets. As we continue through the remainder of 2005 and look towards 2006, we are committed to growing business loans and deposits while simultaneously strengthening our ties to the people of the communities we serve. We are excited about our new Tinley Park location that we expect to open late in the second quarter of 2006. We will continue to identify new locations and new markets that will not only enable us to create more relationships but to better serve our current customers as well."

Net Interest Margin

The Company's net interest margin was 2.63% for the third quarter of 2005 compared to 2.43% for the third quarter of 2004. The weighted average yield on the Company's interest-earning assets improved to 5.73% for the third quarter 2005 and represented a 65 basis point increase from the comparable 2004 period. The increase in the weighted average yield primarily was the result of the upward repricing of adjustable-rate loans reflecting higher market rates of interest coupled with the reduction in the average balance of low-yielding interest-earning assets. As of September 30, 2005, the Company's loan portfolio consisted of $252.8 million of variable-rate loans indexed to the Wall Street Journal Prime lending rate and another $429.9 million of variable-rate loans tied to other indices. Mitigating the positive impact of the increase in the weighted average yield on interest income, the Company's average interest-earning assets decreased 13.5% for the third quarter of 2005 as compared to the third quarter of 2004 primarily as a result of the Company utilizing securities and other interest-earning assets for the repayment of borrowings that occurred during the fourth quarter of 2004.

The slight increase in the Company's interest expense for the third quarter of 2005 from the comparable 2004 period was primarily a result of the increased cost of the Company's deposit accounts. The weighted average cost of deposits increased to 1.82% for the third quarter of 2005 as compared to 1.39% for the third quarter of 2004. The increase was mainly a result of upward repricing of certificates of deposit and money market accounts as well as the impact of the Company's high-yield promotional checking product which was offered in select markets during the first two quarters of 2005. The average cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased 55 basis points for the third quarter of 2005 compared to the third quarter of 2004. The increase in the weighted average cost of interest-bearing liabilities was primarily a result of the $2.9 million premium amortization expense recognized during the third quarter of 2005 along with increases in the cost of interest-bearing deposits. The unamortized premium on the early extinguishment of debt and the related quarterly amortization adversely impacted the Company's net interest margin by 95 basis points for the third quarter of 2005. The interest expense related to the premium amortization on the early extinguishment of debt is expected to be $2.8 million, $2.6 million, $2.6 million and $2.5 million before taxes in the quarters ended December 31, 2005, March 31, 2006, June 30, 2006 and September 30, 2006, respectively.

The Company's net interest margin for the first nine months of 2005 was 2.33% compared to 2.16% for the comparable prior year period. The Company's net interest margin was negatively impacted during the first nine months of 2005 by the premium amortization on the early extinguishment of debt. For the nine months ended September 30, 2005, the Company's interest expense included $11.6 million of premium amortization. The unamortized premium and the related year-to-date amortization adversely impacted the Company's net interest margin by 128 basis points for the nine months ended September 30, 2005.

Non-Interest Income

The Company's third quarter of 2005 non-interest income was $3.3 million, an increase of $289,000 from the third quarter of 2004. The increase was primarily a result of the Company realizing a $294,000 gain on the sale of vacant land located adjacent to one of its branches in Munster, Indiana. The Company's service charges and other fees remained relatively stable as compared to the third quarter of 2004. The Company recognized a net loss of $25,000 on the sale of available-for-sale investment securities during the third quarter of 2005 as compared to net gains of $711,000 during the third quarter of 2004. In addition, the third quarter of 2004 included an impairment of available-for-sale securities totaling $585,000.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense for the third quarter of 2005 was $8.2 million, a decrease of $2.5 million from the comparable period in 2004. The Company's non-interest expense for the third quarter of 2004 included $1.0 million of additional compensation expense, $421,000 in viatical receivables write-downs and a $485,000 prepayment penalty incurred when the Company prepaid $6.5 million of FHLB borrowings. In addition, the Company's professional fees for the third quarter of 2004 included additional legal expenses of $381,000 related to the Company's goodwill litigation trial that concluded during the third quarter of 2004.

The Company's efficiency ratio for the third quarter of 2005 was 73% as compared to 93% for the third quarter of 2004 while its core efficiency ratio was 59% for the third quarter of 2005 as compared to 90% for the third quarter of 2004. The improvement in the efficiency ratio for the third quarter of 2005 from the third quarter of 2004 was the direct result of the decrease in the Company's non-interest expense as discussed above. The improvement in the core efficiency ratio was a result of increased core revenues combined with reduced non-interest expense for the third quarter of 2005 when compared to the third quarter of 2004. The calculations of the efficiency ratio and the core efficiency ratio are presented on page 10 of this press release.

Management has historically used an efficiency ratio that is a non-GAAP financial measure of operating expense control and the efficiency of the Company's operations. The efficiency ratio is typically defined as the ratio of non-interest expense to the sum of non-interest income and net interest income before the provision for losses on loans. Many financial institutions, in calculating the efficiency ratio, adjust non-interest income (as calculated under generally accepted accounting principles) to exclude certain component elements, such as gains or losses on sales of securities and assets. Management follows this practice to calculate its core efficiency ratio and utilizes the non-GAAP measure in its analysis of the Company's performance. The core efficiency ratio is different from the GAAP-based efficiency ratio and is presented in the last table within this press release. The GAAP-based measure is calculated using non-interest expense, net interest income before the provision for losses on loans and non-interest income as presented on the consolidated statements of income.

The Company's core efficiency ratio is calculated as non-interest expense, excluding any prepayment penalties incurred as a result of the early extinguishment of debt, divided by the sum of net interest income before the provision for losses on loans, excluding the deferred premium amortization related to the early extinguishment of debt, and non-interest income, adjusted for gains or losses on the sale of securities and other assets and other-than-temporary impairments. Management believes that the core efficiency ratio enhances investors' understanding of the Company's business and performance. The measure is also believed to be useful in understanding the Company's performance trends and to facilitate comparisons with the performance of others in the financial services industry. Management further believes the presentation of the core efficiency ratio provides useful supplemental information, a clearer understanding of the Company's financial performance and better reflects the Company's core operating activities.

The risks associated with utilizing operating measures (such as the efficiency ratio) are that different persons might disagree as to the appropriateness of items comprising these measures and that other companies might calculate these measures differently. Management of the Company compensates for these limitations by providing detailed reconciliations between GAAP information and its core efficiency ratio. These disclosures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP.

Income Taxes

The Company's income tax expense for the third quarter of 2005 was $632,000 compared to an income tax benefit of $2.6 million for the comparable period in 2004. The increase in tax expense was mainly a result of pre-tax earnings in the 2005 period as compared to a loss for the same period in 2004. Permanent tax differences, primarily related to the Company's investment in Bank-owned life insurance, and the application of available tax credits continue to have a favorable impact on income tax expense.

Asset Quality

The Company's provision for losses on loans was $545,000 for the third quarter of 2005, a decrease of $5.6 million from the comparable 2004 period. The Company's net charge-offs for the third quarter of 2005 were $726,000, as compared to $965,000 for the same period in 2004. During the third quarter of 2004, the provision for losses on loans reflected in large part the effect of the identification of impaired loans that, along with management's assessment of the adequacy of the Company's allowance for losses on loans, required an increase in the provision during the third quarter of 2004.

As of September 30, 2005, the Company had nine impaired loans totaling $27.2 million with an impairment allocation related to these loans of $6.9 million. The Company's non-performing assets totaled $29.3 million as of September 30, 2005 compared to $28.2 million as of December 31, 2004.

The Company's allowance for losses on loans was $13.7 million at September 30, 2005 and $13.4 million at December 31, 2004. The ratio of the allowance for losses on loans to total loans was 1.45% and 1.35% at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, respectively. The Company maintains the allowance for losses on loans at a level that management believes is sufficient to absorb credit losses inherent in the loan portfolio. The allowance for losses on loans represents the Company's estimate of inherent losses existing in the loan portfolio that are both probable and reasonable to estimate at each balance sheet date and is based on its review of available and relevant information. The Company believes that as of September 30, 2005, the allowance for losses on loans was adequate.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2005, the Company's net loans receivable totaled $930.1 million as compared to $974.7 million at December 31, 2004. The Company originated over $65.0 million in new loans and lines of credit during the third quarter of 2005. In addition, total fundings during the first nine months of 2005 exceeded $172.0 million and total loan purchases were $77.0 million. However, these increases in loans outstanding were more than offset by loan repayments and loans sold. As of September 30, 2005, the Company had commitments to originate commercial and retail loans and lines of credit totaling $44.1 million and commitments to fund unused construction loans and lines of credit totaling $162.3 million.

Total deposits were $825.0 million at September 30, 2005, down $38.2 million from $863.2 million at December 31, 2004. The decrease was largely caused by a $20.1 million reduction in certificates of deposit combined with an $18.1 million decrease in core deposits during the nine months ended September 30, 2005. The decrease in certificates of deposit was primarily due to the managed runoff of certificates during the first two quarters of 2005. The decrease in the core deposits was primarily the result of disintermediation of the Company's money market and savings deposit accounts.

The Company's borrowed money totaled $274.0 million as of September 30, 2005 compared to $286.6 million at December 31, 2004. The Company's borrowed money as of September 30, 2005 consisted of $292.6 million of contractually outstanding FHLB borrowings which were reduced by $18.6 million of unamortized premium related to the early extinguishment of FHLB debt. At December 31, 2004, the Company's contractually outstanding FHLB borrowings totaled $316.8 million and were reduced by $30.2 million of unamortized premium.

Stockholders' equity at September 30, 2005 was $143.7 million as compared to $147.9 million at December 31, 2004. The decrease during the first nine months of 2005 was primarily due to:

--  cash dividends declared during 2005 totaling $4.2 million;
--  repurchases of shares of the Company's common stock during 2005
    totaling $4.3 million; and
--  an $821,000 increase in accumulated other comprehensive losses.
    
The following increases in stockholders' equity during the first nine months of 2005 partially offset the aforementioned decreases:
--  net income of $3.2 million;
--  $1.2 million related to shares committed to be released under the
    Company's Employee Stock Ownership Plan; and
--  proceeds from stock option exercises totaling $472,000.
    
During the first nine months of 2005, the Company repurchased 311,240 shares of its common stock at an average price of $13.68 per share pursuant to the share repurchase program announced in March 2003. As of September 30, 2005, the Company has 868,916 of shares remaining to be repurchased under its current share repurchase program. Since its initial public offering, the Company has repurchased an aggregate of 11,903,856 shares of its common stock at an average price of $11.80 per share.

The regulatory capital ratios of the Bank continued to be in excess of regulatory requirements. As of September 30, 2005, the Bank was deemed to be "well-capitalized" under the Office of Thrift Supervision's regulatory capital guidelines.
