  • Quarterly EPS Increased 12% to $0.77 from $0.69 One Year Ago
  • Quarterly Return on Average Assets of 1.42%
  • Quarterly Return on Average Equity of 11.07%
  • Quarterly Net Interest Margin of 3.94%
  • Announces $0.23 Quarterly Cash Dividend
  • Announces New Stock Repurchase Program

HOQUIAM, Wash., July 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Timberland Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSBK) ("Timberland" or "the Company"), the holding company for Timberland Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $6.31 million, or $0.77 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. This compares to net income of $5.74 million, or $0.69 per diluted common share for the comparable quarter one year ago and $6.66 million, or $0.80 per diluted common share, for the preceding quarter.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2023, Timberland's net income increased 24% to $20.48 million, or $2.47 per diluted common share, compared to $16.55 million, or $1.97 per diluted common share for the first nine months of fiscal 2022.

"Timberland's third fiscal quarter produced strong financial results, with net income and EPS increasing 10% and 12%, respectively, compared to the year ago quarter," stated Dean Brydon, Chief Executive Officer. "Strong quarterly loan portfolio growth of 4% in conjunction with a higher interest rate environment compared to a year ago contributed to our solid quarterly and year-to-date results. As a result of the Company's strong earnings and capital position, Timberland's Board of Directors announced a quarterly cash dividend of $0.23 per share, payable on August 25, 2023, to shareholders of record on August 11, 2023. This represents the 43rd consecutive quarter Timberland will have paid a cash dividend. In addition, the Company also announced the adoption of a new stock repurchase program. Under the new repurchase program, Timberland may repurchase up to 5% of the outstanding shares, or 404,708 shares. The new stock repurchase program replaces our existing stock repurchase program, which had 74,212 shares available to be repurchased."

"Asset quality metrics remain excellent, with quarter end non-performing assets at 9 basis points of total assets," Brydon continued. "Loan origination volumes remained steady and net loans receivable grew by $50 million during the quarter. Due primarily to loan portfolio growth, a $610,000 provision for loan losses was made for the quarter. At the same time, both on-balance sheet and off-balance sheet liquidity remained strong with only $15 million in borrowings at June 30, 2023 and additional secured borrowing line capacity of $691 million available through the Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") and the Federal Reserve."

"Net interest margin remained strong at 3.94% for the quarter, just 5 basis points lower than the prior quarter's margin and 83 basis points higher compared to the year ago quarter," said Jonathan Fischer, President and Chief Operating Officer. "Deposit growth and pricing was competitive during the quarter, and we have not been immune to the effects of the Federal Reserve's tightening monetary policy. As anticipated, funding costs increased during the quarter as we continue to increase short-term deposit rates to retain rate sensitive customer deposits. We added $38 million in brokered deposits and saw a slight increase in total deposits during the quarter."

Earnings and Balance Sheet Highlights (at or for the periods ended June 30, 2023, compared to June 30, 2022, or March 31, 2023):

Earnings Highlights:

  • Earnings per diluted common share ("EPS") increased 12% to $0.77 for the current quarter from $0.69 for the comparable quarter one year ago and decreased 4% from $0.80 for the preceding quarter; EPS for the first nine months of fiscal 2023 increased 25% to $2.47 from $1.97 for the first nine months of fiscal 2022;
  • Net income increased 10% to $6.31 million for the current quarter from $5.74 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and decreased 5% from $6.66 million for the preceding quarter; Net income increased 24% to $20.48 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2023 from $16.55 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2022;
  • Return on average equity ("ROE") and return on average assets ("ROA") for the current quarter were 11.07% and 1.42%, respectively;
  • Net interest margin ("NIM") for the current quarter expanded to 3.94% from 3.11% for the comparable quarter one year ago and compressed from 3.99% for the preceding quarter; and
  • The efficiency ratio for the current quarter was 56.01% compared to 57.80% for the comparable quarter one year ago and 55.31% for the preceding quarter.

Balance Sheet Highlights:

  • Total assets decreased 4% year-over-year and increased 1% from the prior quarter;
  • Net loans receivable increased 16% year-over-year and 4% from the prior quarter;
  • Total deposits decreased 7% year-over-year and increased slightly (less than 1%) from the prior quarter;
  • Total shareholders' equity increased 7% year-over-year and 1% from the prior quarter;
  • Non-performing assets to total assets ratio improved to 0.09% from 0.13% one year ago;
  • Book and tangible book (non-GAAP) values per common share increased to $28.32 and $26.36, respectively, at June 30, 2023; and
  • Liquidity (both on-balance sheet and off-balance sheet) remained strong at June 30, 2023 with only $15 million in borrowings and additional secured borrowing line capacity of $691 million available through the FHLB and the Federal Reserve.

Operating Results

Operating revenue (net interest income before the provision for loan losses plus non-interest income) for the current quarter increased 14% to $19.51 million from $17.08 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and decreased 1% from $19.79 million for the preceding quarter. The decrease in operating revenue compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to a decrease in net interest income as funding costs increased at a greater pace than interest income increased. Operating revenue increased by 21% to $59.74 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2023 from $49.20 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2022, primarily due to increased interest income from loans, overnight funds, and investment securities, which were partially offset by an increase in total interest expense and a decrease in gain on sales of loans. The increased interest income in these categories was primarily a result of increased short-term market interest rates and the continued deployment of liquidity into higher-yielding loans and investment securities.

Net interest income increased $2.65 million, or 19%, to $16.63 million for the current quarter from $13.98 million for the comparable quarter one year ago and decreased $517,000 or 3%, from $17.15 million for the preceding quarter. The decrease in net interest income compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to increased funding costs and a decrease in average interest-earning assets. The weighted average cost of total interest-bearing liabilities increased to 1.22% for the current quarter from 0.84% for the preceding quarter as market interest rates increased. Partially offsetting the increase in interest expense was an increase in the weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets to 4.72% for the current quarter from 4.51% for the preceding quarter. Total average interest-earning assets decreased by $31.71 million, or 2%, to $1.69 billion for the current quarter from $1.72 billion for the preceding quarter. Timberland's NIM for the current quarter compressed to 3.94% from 3.99% for the preceding quarter and expanded from 3.11% for the comparable quarter one year ago. The NIM for the current quarter was increased by approximately three basis points due to the accretion of $22,000 of the fair value discount on loans acquired in the South Sound Acquisition and the collection of $87,000 in pre-payment penalties, non-accrual interest, and late fees. The NIM for the preceding quarter was increased by approximately three basis points due to the accretion of $15,000 of the fair value discount on loans acquired in the South Sound Acquisition and the collection of $99,000 in pre-payment penalties, non-accrual interest and late fees. The NIM for the comparable quarter one year ago was increased by approximately five basis points due to the accretion of $63,000 of the fair value discount on loans acquired in the South Sound Acquisition and the collection of $147,000 in pre-payment penalties, non-accrual interest and late fees. Net interest income for the first nine months of fiscal 2023 increased $11.96 million, or 30%, to $51.53 million from $39.57 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2022. Timberland's net interest margin for the first nine months of fiscal 2023 expanded to 3.99% from 2.99% for the first nine months of fiscal 2022.

U.S. Small Business Administration ("SBA") PPP loans contribute to interest income through the 1.00% interest rate earned on outstanding loan balances and also through the accretion of loan origination fees into interest income over the life of each PPP loan. At June 30, 2023, Timberland had SBA PPP deferred loan origination fees of $19,000 remaining to be accreted into interest income over the remaining life of the loans. The following table details the interest income recognized from SBA PPP loans:

A $610,000 provision for loan losses was recorded for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. The provision was made primarily due to loan portfolio growth. A $475,000 provision for loans losses was recorded for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. No provision for loan losses was made during the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Non-interest income increased $239,000 or 9%, to $2.88 million for the current quarter from $2.64 million for the preceding quarter and decreased $227,000, or 7%, from $3.10 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. The increase in non-interest income compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to a $95,000 gain on sale of investment securities, a $77,000 increase in service charges on deposits, a $60,000 increase in ATM and debit card interchange transaction fees and smaller increases in several other categories. Fiscal year-to-date non-interest income decreased 15% to $8.22 million from $9.63 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2022, primarily due to a $1.19 million decrease in gain on sales of loans as the dollar amount of fixed-rate one-to four-family loans originated and sold decreased as demand slowed and a larger portion of single family loan originations were retained in the portfolio rather than being sold.

Total operating (non-interest) expenses for the current quarter decreased slightly (less than 1%) to $10.93 million from $10.94 million for the preceding quarter and increased $1.05 million, or 11%, from $9.87 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. The decrease in operating expenses compared to the preceding quarter was primarily due to a $186,000 decrease in salaries and employee benefits (primarily due to fewer employees) and smaller decreases in several other expense categories. These decreases were partially offset by a $184,000 increase in deposit operations expense (primarily due to an increase in unrecovered overdrafts and fraud related expenses) and smaller increases in several other expense categories. The efficiency ratio for the current quarter was 56.01% compared to 55.31% for the preceding quarter and 57.80% for the comparable quarter one year ago. Fiscal year-to-date operating expenses increased 14% to $32.41 million from $28.47 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2022. The year-to-date increase in operating expenses was primarily due to a $2.20 million increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $632,000 increase in data processing and telecommunications expense, and smaller increases in several other expense categories. The efficiency ratio for the first nine months of fiscal 2023 improved to 54.24% from 57.87% for the first nine months of fiscal 2022.

The provision for income taxes for the current quarter decreased $39,000, or 2%, to $1.67 million from $1.71 million for the preceding quarter, primarily due to lower taxable income. Timberland's effective income tax rate was 20.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 compared to 20.4% for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 and 20.4% for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. Timberland's effective income tax rate was 20.4% for the first nine months of fiscal 2023 compared to 20.1% for the first nine months of fiscal 2022.

Balance Sheet Management

Total assets increased $21.10 million, or 1%, during the quarter to $1.81 billion at June 30, 2023 from $1.79 billion at March 31, 2023 and decreased $80.08 million, or 4%, from $1.89 billion one year ago. The quarter's increase was primarily due to a $50.45 million increase in net loans receivable which was partially offset by a $17.10 million decrease in investment securities and CDs held for investment and a $12.53 million decrease in total cash and cash equivalents.

Liquidity

Timberland has continued to maintain a strong liquidity position (both on-balance sheet and off-balance sheet) while deploying overnight funds into loans and investment securities during the past year. Liquidity, as measured by the sum of cash and cash equivalents, CDs held for investment, and available for sale investment securities, was 12.1% of total liabilities at June 30, 2023, compared to 14.0% at March 31, 2023, and 29.4% one year ago. Timberland had secured borrowing line capacity of $691 million available through the FHLB and the Federal Reserve at June 30, 2023. With a strong and diversified deposit base, only 21% of Timberland's deposits were uninsured (or uncollateralized) at June 30, 2023. (Note: The uninsured deposit calculation excludes public deposits that are fully collateralized.)

Loans

Net loans receivable increased $50.45 million, or 4%, during the quarter to $1.26 billion at June 30, 2023 from $1.21 billion at March 30, 2023. This increase was primarily due to a $14.66 million increase in construction and land development loans, a $12.64 million increase in one- to four-family loans, a $9.14 million increase in commercial real estate loans, a $7.91 million increase in multi-family loans, a $7.76 million increase in commercial loans, and smaller increases in several other loan categories. These increases to net loans receivable were partially offset by a $5.52 million increase in the undisbursed portion of construction loans in process and smaller decreases in several other loan categories.

Timberland originated $93.72 million in loans during the quarter ended June 30, 2023, compared to $77.15 million for the preceding quarter and $128.90 million for the comparable quarter one year ago. Timberland continues to originate fixed-rate one- to four-family mortgage loans, a portion of which are sold into the secondary market for asset-liability management purposes and to generate non-interest income. During the past twelve months, a larger percentage of single-family loan originations were retained in the portfolio rather than being sold due to the increased yield available on such loans. During the current quarter, fixed-rate one- to four-family mortgage loans totaling $3.41 million were sold compared to $2.39 million for the preceding quarter and $11.61 million for the comparable quarter one year ago.

Investment Securities

Timberland's investment securities and CDs held for investment decreased $17.10 million, or 5%, to $336.66 million at June 30, 2023, from $353.77 million at March 31, 2023. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of $8.86 million of available for sale investment securities (for a gain of $95,000), maturities and scheduled amortization.

Deposits

Total deposits increased $3.96 million during the quarter to $1.55 billion at June 30, 2023, from $1.55 billion at March 31, 2022. The quarter's increase consisted of a $65.20 million increase in certificates of deposit balances (including an increase of $38.32 million in brokered deposits). This increase was partially offset by a $27.87 million decrease in savings account balance, a $26.55 million decrease in non-interest bearing deposit balances, $5.70 million decrease in NOW checking account balances, and a $1.11 million decrease in money market account balances.

Borrowings

Total borrowings increased to $15.00 million at June 30, 2023, as the Company utilized borrowings to supplement on-balance sheet liquidity during the current quarter. At June 30, 2023, the borrowings consisted of three-year FHLB borrowings with a weighted average rate of 3.95%.

Shareholders' Equity and Capital Ratios

Total shareholders' equity increased $1.60 million, or 1%, to $229.26 million at June 30, 2023, from $227.66 million at March 31, 2023. The increase in shareholders' equity was primarily due to net income of $6.31 million for the quarter and $17,000 from the exercise of stock options, which was partially offset by the payment of $1.88 million in dividends to shareholders and the repurchase of 110,000 shares of common stock for $2.67 million (an average price of $24.31 per share).

Timberland remains well capitalized with a total risk-based capital ratio of 19.36%, a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 12.27%, a tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) of 11.91%, and a shareholders' equity to total assets ratio of 12.68% at June 30, 2023. Timberland's held to maturity investment securities were $275.05 million at June 30, 2023, with a net unrealized loss of $14.59 million (pre-tax). Although not permitted by U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), including these unrealized losses in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) ("AOCI") would result in a ratio of shareholders' equity to total assets of 12.04%, compared to 12.68%, as reported.

New Stock Repurchase Program

The Company announced a new stock repurchase program today. Under the repurchase program, the Company may repurchase up to 5% of the Company's outstanding shares, or 404,708 shares. The new stock repurchase program replaces the existing stock repurchase program which had 74,212 shares available to be repurchased.

The repurchase program permits shares to be repurchased in open market or private transactions, through block trades, and pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Repurchases will be made at management's discretion at prices management considers to be attractive and in the best interest of both the Company and its shareholders, subject to the availability of stock, general market conditions, the trading price of the stock, alternative uses for capital, and the Company's financial performance. Open market purchases will be conducted in accordance with the limitations set forth in Rule 10b-18 of the SEC and other applicable legal requirements. The repurchase program may be suspended, terminated, or modified at any time for any reason, including market conditions, the cost of repurchasing the shares, the availability of alternative investment opportunities, liquidity, and other factors deemed appropriate. These factors may also affect the timing and amount of share repurchases. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to purchase any particular number of shares.

Asset Quality

Timberland's non-performing assets to total assets ratio improved to 0.09% at June 30, 2023 from 0.12% at March 31, 2023 and 0.13% at June 30, 2022. There were net charge-offs of $1,000 for the current quarter, compared to net charge-offs of $6,000 for the preceding quarter and no charge-offs for the comparable quarter one year ago. Due primarily to loan portfolio growth, a $610,000 provision for loan losses was made for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 and a $475,000 provision for loan losses was made for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. No provision for loan losses was made during the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

The allowance for loan losses ("ALL") as a percentage of loans receivable was 1.20% at June 30, 2023, compared to 1.20% at March 31, 2023 and 1.22% one year ago.

The ALL as a percentage of loans receivable is also impacted by the loans acquired in the South Sound Acquisition. Included in the recorded value of loans acquired in acquisitions are net discounts which may reduce the need for an allowance for loan losses on such loans because they are carried at an amount below their outstanding principal balance. The initial recorded value of loans acquired in the South Sound Acquisition was $123.62 million and the related fair value discount was $2.08 million, or 1.68% of the loans acquired. The remaining fair value discount on loans acquired in the South Sound Acquisition was $203,000 at June 30, 2023. The allowance for loan losses to loans receivable (excluding SBA PPP loan balances and the remaining aggregate balance of the loans acquired in the South Sound Acquisition) was 1.21% (non-GAAP) at June 30, 2023.

The following table details the ALL as a percentage of loans receivable:

Total delinquent loans (past due 30 days or more) and non-accrual loans decreased $689,000 or 27%, to $1.84 million at June 30, 2023, from $2.53 million one year ago, and decreased $348,000, or 16%, from $2.19 million at March 31, 2023. Non-accrual loans decreased $705,000, or 31%, to $1.59 million at June 30, 2023, from $2.29 million one year ago, and decreased $383,000, or 19%, from $1.97 million at March 31, 2023.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Timberland believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with information useful in understanding the Company's financial performance; however, readers of this report are urged to review these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP results as reported.

Financial measures that exclude intangible assets are non-GAAP measures. To provide investors with a broader understanding of capital adequacy, Timberland provides non-GAAP financial measures for tangible common equity, along with the GAAP measure. Tangible common equity is calculated as shareholders' equity less goodwill and CDI. In addition, tangible assets equal total assets less goodwill and CDI.

The following table provides a reconciliation of ending shareholders' equity (GAAP) to ending tangible shareholders' equity (non-GAAP) and ending total assets (GAAP) to ending tangible assets (non-GAAP).
