CFS Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

MUNSTER, IN--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - CFS Bancorp, Inc. (the Company), (NASDAQ: CITZ), the parent of Citizens Financial Bank (the Bank), today reported net income of $394,000, or $.04 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011, compared to net income of $863,000, or $.08 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2010. The Company's net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $2.1 million, or $.20 per diluted share, compared to $2.5 million, or $.24 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2010.

Financial results for the quarter include:

  • Other real estate owned decreased $4.0 million, or 18.8%, during the quarter to $17.2 million compared to $21.2 million at June 30, 2011;
  • Non-performing assets decreased to $76.5 million compared to $78.4 million at June 30, 2011;
  • Provision for loan losses increased to $2.7 million from $1.0 million for the second quarter of 2011 and $525,000 for the third quarter of 2010 due to a higher level of net charge-offs in the current quarter;
  • Core deposits increased to $596.8 million, to 60.5% of total deposits, compared to $570.6 million, or 59.2% of total deposits, at June 30, 2011;
  • Net interest margin decreased to 3.39% in the third quarter of 2011 from 3.59% in the second quarter of 2011 and 3.54% in the third quarter of 2010; and
  • The Bank's risk-based capital ratio increased to 13.57% from 13.29% at June 30, 2011.

Chairman's Comments

"This is our eighth consecutive quarter of positive earnings," said Thomas F. Prisby, Chairman and CEO. "As we build our liquidity and maintain high cash balances earning a minimal return, our margin continues to be negatively impacted. We are positioning the Bank to continue to grow earning assets as the opportunities for loan quantity and quality emerge."

"Our funding quality and core deposits continue to strengthen as we continue to expand and deepen our commercial and retail relationships," continued Prisby. "We have renewed our efforts to expand income opportunities, and more importantly, reduce operating expenses without impacting the quality of our products and services."

"The reduction in non-performing assets continues as our highest priority. Significant progress is being made by Daryl Pomranke, President and Chief Operating Officer, and the Asset Management team," added Prisby. "We continually evaluate all opportunities to reduce non-performing assets in a cost efficient manner. We sold our largest other real estate owned parcel carried at $6.7 million at a small gain during the quarter."

Progress on Strategic Growth and Diversification Plan

The Company continues to focus its efforts on reducing the level of non-performing loans, seeking to either restructure specific non-performing credits or foreclose, obtain title, and transfer the loan to other real estate owned where we can take control of and liquidate the underlying collateral. The Company's ratio of non-performing loans to total loans increased to 8.18% at September 30, 2011 from 7.76% at June 30, 2011, which was related to an increase in non-accruing non-owner occupied commercial real estate loans and lower total outstanding loans. This was partially offset by transfers to other real estate owned during the quarter. The non-performing assets ratio to total assets declined to 6.55% at September 30, 2011 from 6.95% at June 30, 2011 primarily due to the reduction in other real estate owned and the impact of a larger balance sheet. See the Asset Quality table in this press release.

During the third quarter, the Bank sold $6.9 million of other real estate owned, recognizing pre-tax net gains on the sales of $266,000. The Bank currently has contracts on six separate other real estate owned properties which will reduce non-performing assets by an additional $597,000 during the fourth quarter of 2011 with no anticipated loss on sale, presuming the transactions close as scheduled and pursuant to the contractual terms.

The Company also remains strongly focused on its cost structure, as non-interest expense for the third quarter of 2011 decreased to $9.2 million from $11.1 million for the second quarter of 2011 and from $9.4 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease was primarily the result of the absence of large valuation allowances on other real estate owned in the second quarter of 2011. Excluding these valuation allowances, non-interest expense for the third quarter decreased to $8.9 million from $9.3 million for the second quarter of 2011 and $9.2 million for the third quarter of 2010.

The Company continues to target specific segments in its loan portfolio for growth, including commercial and industrial, commercial real estate - owner occupied, and multifamily, which in the aggregate comprised 52.2% of the commercial loan portfolio at September 30, 2011, compared to 53.1% at June 30, 2011. The decrease was primarily related to the payoff of a $6.8 million multifamily loan and partially offset by the origination of a $5.2 million non-owner occupied commercial real estate loan during the third quarter of 2011. The Company's focus on deepening relationships continues to emphasize core deposit growth. Total core deposit balances increased 4.6% from June 30, 2011, and total core deposits as a percentage of total deposits increased to 60.5% at September 30, 2011 from 59.2% at June 30, 2011.

Pre-tax, Pre-Provision Earnings, As Adjusted(1)

The Company's pre-tax, pre-provision earnings, as adjusted, totaled $2.7 million for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2011 and $2.3 million for the third quarter of 2010. The pre-tax, pre-provision earnings, as adjusted, for the third quarter of 2011 compared to the second quarter of 2011 was favorably impacted by increased service charges and other fees, gains on the sale on loans receivable, and commission income coupled with a decrease in compensation and employee benefits expense, FDIC insurance premiums and regulatory assessments, and marketing expenses.

The Company's net interest margin decreased 20 basis points to 3.39% for the third quarter of 2011 from 3.59% for the second quarter of 2011 and decreased 15 basis points from 3.54% for the third quarter of 2010. Net interest income was $8.9 million for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $9.2 million for the second quarter of 2011 and $8.9 million for the third quarter of 2010. The net interest margin continued to be negatively impacted by the Bank's higher levels of liquidity due to strong deposit growth, modest loan demand, and the elevated level of non-performing assets. The yield on investment securities declined due to reinvesting proceeds from sales and maturities of investment securities in lower yielding investments as market interest rates remained low. In addition, the higher level of the Bank's non-performing loans continues to negatively affect the yield on loans receivable. The Bank's net interest margin was positively affected by a seven basis point decrease in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities from the second quarter of 2011 and a 32 basis point decrease compared to the third quarter of 2010.

Interest income decreased 4.1% to $10.8 million for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $11.2 million for the second quarter of 2011 and 6.2% from $11.5 million for the third quarter of 2010. The fluctuations are primarily related to the Bank reinvesting its proceeds from sales and maturities of investment securities in lower yielding investments and maintaining higher levels of short-term liquid investments due to the lack of suitable higher yielding investment alternatives in the current low interest rate environment and modest loan demand. Furthermore, the Bank's level of non-performing assets continues to negatively impact interest income.

Interest expense decreased 6.7% to $1.9 million for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2011 and 26.5% from $2.6 million for the third quarter of 2010. The Bank's continued disciplined pricing on new deposits, repricing of renewals of existing certificates of deposit at lower interest rates, and a 37.3% reduction in the average balances of Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances contributed to the decrease in interest expense during the third quarter of 2011 compared to the third quarter of 2010.

Non-Interest Income and Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest income decreased $1.2 million, or 27.1%, to $3.3 million for the third quarter of 2011 compared to the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to a decrease of $2.0 million of net gains on sales of other real estate owned partially offset by an increase of $758,000 of net gains on sales of investment securities. The net gains on the sale of investment securities resulted from the sale of $22.8 million of longer duration investment securities as interest rates declined to historic lows during the quarter. Excluding these gains on sales of investment securities and other real estate owned, non-interest income increased $159,000 from the second quarter of 2011 due to increased activity related to service charges and other fees, commission income, and net gains on sales of loans receivable.

Non-interest income increased $1.2 million, or 55.6%, from $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2010 primarily due to net gains on sales of investment securities totaling $758,000 and other real estate owned totaling $266,000. Excluding these gains on sales, non-interest income increased $161,000 from the third quarter of 2010 primarily due to increased activity related to card-based fees, commission income, and net gains on sales of loans receivable.

Non-interest expense for the third quarter of 2011 decreased 17.0% and 2.7%, respectively, to $9.2 million compared to $11.1 million for the second quarter of 2011 and $9.4 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease from the second quarter of 2011 was primarily due to the absence of $1.4 million of valuation allowances of other real estate owned properties combined with decreases in compensation and employee benefits primarily related to a decrease in accrued incentive expense, FDIC insurance premiums and regulatory assessments, and marketing costs. The decrease compared to the third quarter of 2010 is primarily due to decreases in FDIC insurance premiums and regulatory assessments, professional fees related to the proxy contest in 2010, and the absence of severance and early retirement expense in 2011.

Income Tax Expense

During the current quarter, the Company's income tax benefit totaled $84,000, equal to an effective tax benefit rate of 27.1%, compared to an effective tax rate of 25.6% and 17.9%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2011 and the third quarter of 2010. The decrease in the effective tax rate during the current quarter was primarily due to the increased tax sheltering impact of income from bank-owned life insurance and other tax credits.

Total non-performing loans increased 3.7% to $59.3 million at September 30, 2011, compared to $57.2 million at June 30, 2011. The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans increased to 8.18% during the quarter compared to 7.76% at June 30, 2011 primarily due to a decrease in outstanding loan balances of $12.0 million from June 30, 2011. During the third quarter of 2011, non-performing loans increased primarily due to four non-owner occupied commercial real estate loans totaling $6.1 million being transferred to nonaccrual status. Partially offsetting the increase, net charge-offs totaled $2.5 million during the third quarter of 2011. Non-performing loans also decreased due to the payoff of a $771,000 owner occupied commercial real estate loan from the sale of the collateral and the transfers of an owner occupied commercial real estate loan totaling $979,000 and a commercial participation loan totaling $1.9 million to other real estate owned during the third quarter of 2011.

The provision for loan losses increased to $2.7 million for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $1.0 million for the second quarter of 2011 and $525,000 for the third quarter of 2010. The increase during the third quarter of 2011 was primarily related to the higher level of net charge-offs in the current quarter. Net charge-offs included $532,000 on two commercial and industrial loan relationships, $876,000 on an owner occupied commercial real estate loan relationship, $448,000 on a non-owner occupied commercial real estate loan, and $360,000 on eight home equity lines of credit.

The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans increased slightly to 2.37% at September 30, 2011 compared to 2.31% at June 30, 2011 and decreased slightly compared to 2.41% at September 30, 2010. When management determines a non-performing collateral dependent loan has a collateral shortfall, management will immediately charge off the collateral shortfall. As a result, the Company is not required to maintain an allowance for loan losses on these loans as the loan balance has already been written down to its net realizable value (fair value less estimated costs to sell the collateral). As such, the ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans and the ratio of the allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans have been affected by cumulative partial charge-offs of $4.2 million recorded through September 30, 2011 on $7.3 million, net of charge-offs, of collateral dependent non-performing loans and specific impairment reserves totaling $8.7 million on other non-collateral dependent non-performing loans at September 30, 2011.

Loan fundings during the three months ended September 30, 2011 totaled $20.3 million compared to loan fundings of $38.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and $14.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010, which reflects increased loan demand levels during the current year period. The Company's business banking pipeline continues to improve. Loan fundings during the third quarter of 2011 were offset by loan payoffs and repayments of $22.7 million, transfers to other real estate owned totaling $3.4 million, and gross charge-offs of $2.5 million.

Through the execution of our Strategic Growth and Diversification Plan, we continue to diversify our loan portfolio and reduce loans not meeting our current defined risk tolerance. The Company's targeted growth segments within the loan portfolio, including commercial and industrial, commercial real estate -- owner occupied, and multifamily commercial real estate, comprise 52.2% of the commercial loan portfolio at September 30, 2011. Participations purchased decreased $4.5 million, or 21.0%, compared to June 30, 2011 and $9.7 million, or 36.8%, compared to September 30, 2010.

During the third quarter of 2011, the Bank sold $3.2 million of conforming one-to-four family mortgage loans and recorded a gain on sale of $66,000.

Shareholders' Equity

Shareholders' equity at September 30, 2011 decreased $1.4 million to $114.8 million from $116.2 million at June 30, 2011 and increased $1.8 million from $112.9 million at December 31, 2010. The decrease from June 30, 2011 was due to an increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss totaling $1.7 million and was partially offset by net income of $394,000. The increase from December 31, 2010 was primarily related to net income totaling $2.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

At September 30, 2011, the Company's tangible common equity was $114.8 million, or 9.82% of tangible assets, compared to $112.9 million, or 10.07% of tangible assets at December 31, 2010.

The Company's accounting and reporting policies conform to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and general practice within the banking industry. Management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company's financial performance and has provided the non-GAAP financial measures of pre-tax, pre-provision earnings, as adjusted, and pre-tax, pre-provision earnings, as adjusted, to average assets. In these non-GAAP financial measures, the provision for loan losses, other real estate owned related income and expense, loan collection expense, and certain other items, such as gains and losses on sales of investment securities and other assets, severance and early retirement expense, and FDIC special insurance premium assessment are excluded. Management believes that these measures are useful because they provide a more comparable basis for evaluating financial performance excluding certain credit-related costs and other non-recurring items period to period and allows management and others to assess the Company's ability to generate pre-tax earnings to cover the Company's provision for loan losses and other credit-related costs. Although these non-GAAP financial measures are intended to enhance investors understanding of the Company's business performance, these operating measures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP.
