(1)Net interest income is the difference between interest earned on assets and the cost of liabilities to fund those assets. Interest earned includes actual interest earned on segment assets and, if the segment has excess liabilities, interest credits for providing funding to the other segment. The cost of liabilities includes interest expense on segment liabilities and, if the segment does not have enough liabilities to fund its assets, a funding charge based on the cost of assigned liabilities to fund segment assets.
(2)Noninterest income includes activity from certain residential mortgage loans that were initially originated for sale and measured at fair value, and subsequently transferred to loans held for investment. Gains and losses from changes in fair value for these loans are reported in earnings as a component of noninterest income. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Company recorded a net decrease in fair value of $343,000 and $285,000, as compared to a net decrease in fair value of $816,000 and $1.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively. As of September 30, 2023 and 2022, there were $15.2 million and $14.2 million, respectively, in residential mortgage loans recorded at fair value as they were previously transferred from loans held for sale to loans held for investment.
(3)Noninterest expense includes allocated overhead expense from general corporate activities. Allocation is determined based on a combination of segment assets and FTEs. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Home Lending segment included allocated overhead expenses of $1.5 million and $4.7 million, respectively.

Asset Summary

Total assets increased $14.5 million, or 0.5%, to $2.92 billion at September 30, 2023, compared to $2.91 billion at June 30, 2023, and increased $267.9 million, or 10.1%, from $2.65 billion at September 30, 2022. The increase in total assets at September 30, 2023, compared to the June 30, 2023, was primarily due to increases in loans receivable, net of $33.1 million and securities available-for-sale of $26.0 million, partially offset by a decrease in total cash and cash equivalents of $51.4 million. The increase in total assets at September 30, 2023, compared to September 30, 2022, was primarily due to increases in loans receivable, net of $291.6 million, primarily due to organic loan growth funded through deposits received from the purchase of seven retail branches from Columbia State Bank completed on February 24, 2023 ("Branch Acquisition") and assets purchased in the Branch Acquisition. The increase in total assets at September 30, 2023, compared to September 30, 2022, also included securities available-for-sale of $24.0 million, core deposit intangible ("CDI"), net of $14.8 million and interest-earning deposits at other financial institutions of $12.7 million. These increases were partially offset by decreases in total cash and cash equivalents of $79.1 million, FHLB stock of $9.9 million and loans held for sale ("HFS") of $4.8 million.

The decrease in loan purchase and refinance activity, as well as slower sales activity, compared to the comparable period in 2022 reflects the impact of rising market interest rates and low available housing inventory in our market areas.

(4)Includes $323.3 million, $295.7 million and $256.6 million of brokered deposits at September 30, 2023, June 30, 2023 and September 30, 2022, respectively.

At September 30, 2023, CDs, which include retail and nonretail CDs, totaled $1.02 billion, compared to $918.8 million at June 30, 2023 and $550.3 million at September 30, 2022, with nonretail CDs representing 33.2%, 33.7% and 51.7% of total CDs at such dates, respectively.

Nonretail CDs totaled $337.2 million at September 30, 2023, compared to $284.4 million at September 30, 2022.

At September 30, 2023, the Bank had uninsured deposits of approximately $591.6 million, compared to approximately $587.6 million at June 30, 2023, and $600.4 million at September 30, 2022. The uninsured amounts are estimates based on the methodologies and assumptions used for the Bank's regulatory reporting requirements.

At September 30, 2023, borrowings totaled $121.9 million and were comprised of advances from the Federal Reserve Bank's Term Funding Program of $90.0 million, overnight borrowings of $28.0 million, and FHLB fixed-rate advances of $3.9 million. Borrowings decreased $78.0 million to $121.9 million at September 30, 2023, from $199.9 million at June 30, 2023, and decreased $138.9 million at from $260.8 million at September 30, 2022.

The increase in stockholders' equity at September 30, 2023, compared to June 30, 2023, reflects net income of $9.0 million, partially offset by dividends paid of $1.9 million. In addition, stockholders' equity was negatively impacted by unrealized net losses in securities available for sale of $9.2 million, net of tax, partially offset by unrealized net gains on fair value and cash flow hedges of $2.3 million, net of tax, reflecting changes in market interest rates during the quarter, resulting in a $7.0 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss. Book value per common share was $32.58 at September 30, 2023, compared to $32.71 at June 30, 2023, and $29.07 at September 30, 2022.

The Bank is considered well capitalized under the capital requirements established by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") with a total risk-based capital ratio of 13.1%, a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 10.3%, and a common equity Tier 1 ("CET1") capital ratio of 11.8% at September 30, 2023.

The Company exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with a total risk-based capital ratio of 13.4%, a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 8.9%, and a CET1 ratio of 10.2% at September 30, 2023.

Credit Quality

The allowance for credit losses on loans ("ACLL") totaled to $30.5 million, or 1.27% of gross loans receivable (excluding loans HFS) at September 30, 2023, compared to $30.4 million, or 1.28% of gross loans receivable (excluding loans HFS), at June 30, 2023, and $26.4 million, or 1.25% of gross loans receivable (excluding loans HFS), at September 30, 2022. The $151,000 increase in the ACLL at September 30, 2023, compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to an increase in loans. The $4.1 million increase in the ACLL at September 30, 2023, compared to the prior year was primarily due to organic loan growth and the addition of loans acquired in the Branch Acquisition. The allowance for credit losses on unfunded loan commitments decreased $149,000 to $1.8 million at September 30, 2023, compared to $1.9 million at June 30, 2023, and decreased $1.3 million from $3.1 million at September 30, 2022. The decreases were attributable to a decline in unfunded construction loan commitments at September 30, 2023.

Nonperforming loans decreased $3.7 million to $5.6 million at September 30, 2023, compared to $9.3 million at June 30, 2023, and decreased $2.6 million from $8.2 million at September 30, 2022. The decrease in nonperforming loans at September 30, 2023, from the prior quarter was primarily due to decreases in nonperforming commercial business loans of $3.5 million and indirect home improvement loans of $165,000. The decrease in nonperforming loans compared to the prior year was primarily due to decreases in commercial business loans of $4.3 million and one-to-four-family loans of $535,000, partially offset by increases in commercial real estate loans of $1.1 million, indirect home improvement loans of $1.0 million, and marine loans of $225,000. The decrease in the nonperforming commercial business loans between the periods was primarily attributable to a $3.5 million loan being upgraded to performing from nonperforming status.

Loans classified as substandard increased $2.8 million to $19.2 million at September 30, 2023, compared to $16.4 million at June 30, 2023, and increased $2.5 million from $16.6 million at September 30, 2022. The increase in substandard loans at September 30, 2023 compared to the prior quarter was primarily attributable to increases of $1.7 million in commercial real estate loans and $956,000 in one-to-four-family loans and compared to the prior year was primarily due to increases of $2.2 million in one-to-four-family loans, $1.0 million in indirect home improvement loans, and $225,000 in marine loans, partially offset by a decrease of $928,000 in commercial business loans. There was one other real estate owned property ("OREO") in the amount of $570,000 (a closed branch in Centralia, Washington) at both September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, compared to one OREO in the amount of $145,000 at September 30, 2022.

Operating Results

Net interest income increased $3.1 million to $30.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, from $27.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, primarily as a result of an increase in interest income on loans. Total interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2023, increased $12.0 million compared to the same period last year, primarily due to an increase of $10.3 million in interest income on loans receivable, including fees, impacted primarily as a result of new loans being originated at higher rates and variable rate loans repricing higher following recent increases in market interest rates. Total interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2023, increased $8.9 million compared to the same period last year, primarily as a result of higher market interest rates, higher utilization of borrowings and a shift in deposit mix from transactional accounts to higher cost CDs.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, net interest income increased $17.9 million to $92.8 million, from $75.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, for the same reasons described above for the three-month comparison, with an increase in interest income of $39.9 million and an increase in interest expense of $22.0 million.

NIM (annualized) decreased 20 basis points to 4.34% for the three months ended September 30, 2023, from 4.54% for the same period in the prior year and increased 17 basis points to 4.56% for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, from 4.39% for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The changes in NIM for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 compared to the same period in 2022, reflects new loan originations at higher market interest rates and variable rate interest-earning assets repricing higher following recent increases in market interest rates, offset by the rising cost of deposits and borrowings. The benefit from higher rates and interest earning assets were partially offset by rising deposit and borrowing costs. Increases in average balances of higher costing CDs and borrowings placed additional pressure on the NIM, which resulted in a decrease for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to the same period in 2022.

The average total cost of funds, including noninterest-bearing checking, increased 124 basis points to 1.92% for the three months ended September 30, 2023, from 0.68% for the three months ended September 30, 2022. This increase was predominantly due to the rise in cost for market rates for deposits. The average cost of funds increased 108 basis points to 1.58% for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, from 0.50% for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, also reflecting increases in market interest rates over last year. Management remains focused on matching deposit/liability duration with the duration of loans/assets where appropriate.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, the provision for credit losses on loans was $683,000 and $4.1 million, respectively, compared to $2.0 million and $4.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022. The provision for credit losses on loans reflects an increase in total loans receivable and net charge-offs in indirect home improvement and marine loans.

During the three months ended September 30, 2023, net charge-offs totaled $531,000, compared to $563,000 for the same period last year, primarily due to decreased net charge-offs of $388,000 in deposit overdrafts and $35,000 in marine loans, partially offset by net increases of $387,000 in indirect home improvement loans and $3,000 in other loans. Net charge-offs totaled $1.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2023, compared to $843,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2022. This increase was primarily due to net charge-off increases of $972,000 in indirect home improvement loans, $164,000 in marine loans, $10,000 in home equity loans, and $2,000 in other loans, partially offset by a net decrease of $400,000 in deposit overdrafts charge-offs. Management attributes the increase in net charge-offs over the year primarily to volatile economic conditions.

Noninterest income increased $801,000 to $5.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, from $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The increase reflects a $1.4 million increase in service charges and fee income, primarily as a result of less amortization of mortgage servicing rights reflecting increased market interest rates and increased servicing fees from non-portfolio serviced loans, and an increase of $473,000 in gain on sale of loans, partially offset by a $1.1 million decrease in other noninterest income. Noninterest income increased $622,000, to $15.0 million, for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, from $14.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. This increase was primarily the result of a $4.1 million increase in service charges and fee income, partially offset by decreases of $2.0 million in gain on sale of loans and $1.4 million in other noninterest income.

Noninterest expense increased $4.2 million to $23.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, from $19.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily a result of a $2.1 million increase in salaries and benefits largely due to the Branch Acquisition and growth in FTEs. Other increases included $829,000 in amortization of CDI, $597,000 in operations expense, $293,000 in data processing, $244,000 in occupancy expense, and $232,000 in marketing and advertising, offset by a decrease of $182,000 in loan costs.

Noninterest expense increased $14.0 million to $71.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, from $57.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 primarily for the same reasons stated above. Increases during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2023,as compared to the same period last year included $5.8 million in salaries and benefits, $2.1 million in operations, $2.0 million in amortization of CDI, $1.6 million in acquisition costs, $928,000 in FDIC insurance, $845,000 in occupancy, $729,000 in data processing, and $420,000 in marketing and advertising, offset by a decrease of $386,000 in professional and board fees.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In addition to financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles utilized in the United States ("GAAP"), this earnings release presents non-GAAP financial measures that include tangible book value per share and tangible common equity ratio. Management believes that providing the Company's tangible book value per share and tangible common equity ratio is consistent with the capital treatment utilized by the investment community, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios and facilitates comparison of the quality and composition of the Company's capital over time and in comparison to its competitors. Where applicable, the Company has also presented comparable GAAP information.

These non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied, and are not audited. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for total stockholders' equity or operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Reconciliation of the GAAP book value per share and common equity ratio and the non-GAAP tangible book value per share and tangible common equity ratio is presented below.
