Capitol Federal Financial, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2012 Results

TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Capitol Federal Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: CFFN) (the “Company”) announced results today for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.  Detailed results for the quarter will be available in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on or about February 6, 2012 and posted on our website, http://ir.capfed.com.  

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • net income of $18.8 million,
  • basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.12,
  • net interest margin of 1.98%,
  • dividends paid of $28.3 million,
  • tangible equity to assets ratio of 15.0% at December 31, 2011 for Capitol Federal Savings Bank (the “Bank”), and
  • non-performing loans to total loans ratio of 0.54% at December 31, 2011.



On December 21, 2011, the Company announced that the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $193.0 million of the Company’s common stock.  Since that date there have been no repurchases of the Company’s stock.  It is the intent of management to be disciplined and purchase stock at a price reflective of its trading range following the company’s second-step conversion.  Management regularly considers the movement of the stocks of other banks and bank indices in its consideration of the price to pay to repurchase stock.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Quarters Ended December 31, 2011 and September 30, 2011

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, the Company recognized net income of $18.8 million, compared to net income of $16.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.  The $2.0 million, or 12.1%, increase in net income was due primarily to an increase in net interest income of $1.4 million, or 3.4%, and decreases in the provision for credit losses of $1.1 million, or 67.3%, and other expenses of $955 thousand, or 4.2%, partially offset by an increase in income tax expense of $1.3 million, or 14.3%.  

Total interest and dividend income for the current quarter was $84.8 million compared to $86.6 million for the prior quarter.  The $1.8 million, or 2.0%, decrease was primarily a result of decreases in interest income on loans receivable and mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”).  Interest income on loans receivable decreased $1.3 million, or 2.2%, due to a 13 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield to 4.67% for the current quarter, partially offset by an increase of $23.3 million in the average balance of the portfolio.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due primarily to a significant amount of loan endorsements, refinances, and adjustable-rate mortgage (“ARM”) loans repricing to the current lower rates during the current quarter, originations and purchases at market rates which were lower than the existing portfolio, and, to a lesser extent, principal repayments of loans with yields higher than the remaining portfolio.  Interest income on MBS decreased $580 thousand, or 3.1%, due to a decrease of 17 basis points in the average yield to 3.09%, partially offset by an increase of $55.4 million in the average balance of the portfolio.  The decrease in the weighted average yield between the two periods was due primarily to purchases of MBS at a lower average yield than the existing portfolio during the current quarter, repayments on MBS with yields higher than the remaining portfolio, and ARMs repricing.

Total interest expense decreased $3.2 million, or 7.7%, to $39.5 million for the current quarter from $42.7 million for the prior quarter.  The decrease in interest expense was due primarily to a $1.8 million, or 12.4%, decrease in interest expense on deposits and a $1.1 million, or 20.9%, decrease in interest expense on other borrowings.  The $1.8 million decrease in interest expense on deposits was due primarily to a decrease of 17 basis points in the average rate paid on the certificate of deposit portfolio, from 1.94% for the prior quarter to 1.77% for the current quarter, as the portfolio continued to reprice to lower market rates.  The $1.1 million decrease in interest expense on other borrowings was due primarily to a $102.4 million decrease in the average balance due to the maturity of repurchase agreements that were not renewed, but were replaced with Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) advances.  

The net interest margin, which is calculated as the difference between interest income and interest expense divided by average interest-earning assets, increased nine basis points, from 1.89% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 to 1.98% for the current quarter, largely due to the decrease in interest expense on the certificate of deposit portfolio and other borrowings.  

During the past two quarters, our net interest margin has improved.  However, the historically low market interest rates, as reflected by the absolute level and shape of the yield curve, could potentially have a negative impact to the Company’s net interest margin during future periods if long-term market rates decrease further.  Mortgage endorsements and refinances are expected to continue over the course of the upcoming year, which could result in margin compression.  Interest rates have decreased significantly during the past year and the yield curve has flattened as a result of mixed economic data, uncertainty about the resolution of the European debt crisis, uncertainty about fiscal actions by the U.S. Congress and additional monetary policy announcements by the Federal Reserve.  In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011, the two-year Treasury yield decreased approximately 20 basis points while the 10-year Treasury yield decreased approximately 125 basis points.  Both yields have remained at or near these levels through the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.  Historically, the Bank has benefited from a steeper yield curve as the Bank’s mortgages are typically priced from long-term rates while deposits are priced from short-term rates.  A steeper yield curve, one with a greater difference between short-term rates and long-term rates, allows the Bank to receive a higher rate of interest on our mortgage-related assets than the rate paid for the funding for those assets, which generally results in a higher net interest margin.  As the yield curve flattens, the spread between rates received on assets and paid on liabilities becomes compressed, which generally leads to a decrease in net interest margin.  

Interest-earning assets repricing to lower rates at a faster pace than interest-bearing liabilities can result in net interest margin compression.  At December 31, 2011, the Bank’s one-year gap between interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities was $1.72 billion, or 18.8% of total assets.  If we experience the magnitude of asset repricing as indicated in the gap table, 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 stated levels as borrowers and agency debt issuers will have less economic incentive to modify their costs of borrowing.  If interest rates were to increase 200 basis points, the Bank’s one-year gap would be $146.4 million, or 1.6% of total assets.  The amount of interest-bearing liabilities expected to reprice in a given period is not usually 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.  The majority of interest-earning assets anticipated to reprice in fiscal year 2012 are mortgages and MBS, both of which have the option to prepay and/or refinance or endorse to prevailing market interest rates.  As interest rates decrease, borrowers have an economic incentive to refinance or endorse their loans to the lower market interest rates.  Doing so significantly increases the amount of cash flows anticipated to reprice to lower market interest rates during future periods.  This was evident by the volume of mortgages that were endorsed or refinanced during fiscal year 2011 as a result of the decrease in market interest rates.  In addition, cash flows from the Bank’s callable investment securities are anticipated to increase during fiscal year 2012 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.  The decrease in the net interest margin due to interest-earning assets repricing downward will likely be partially offset by a further decrease in our cost of funds.  

The Bank recorded a provision for credit losses of $540 thousand during the current quarter, compared to a provision of $1.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.  The provision recorded in the current quarter was primarily a result of an increase in historical losses in the formula analysis model related to purchased loans, and partially a result of changing the time periods used for certain factors in the formula analysis model to incorporate more recent data trends in the model.  Included in historical losses are specific valuation allowances (“SVAs”), which, in prior quarters, were adjusted for delinquent loan trends.  Institutions regulated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (the “OCC”) are required to charge-off loan impairments rather than establishing SVAs, as was allowed by the Office of Thrift Supervision (the “OTS”).  In the current quarter, the entire SVA balance was included in historical losses.  This change was made in anticipation of the Bank charging off SVAs during the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 when the Bank is required to file a Call Report with the OCC.  See additional information regarding SVAs under “Supplemental Financial Information – Asset Quality.”

Total other expense was $22.1 million for the current quarter compared to $23.0 million for the prior quarter.  The $955 thousand, or 4.2%, decrease was primarily due to a decrease of $1.2 million, or 10.4%, in salaries and employee benefits due to a decrease in compensation expense related to dividends paid on unallocated Employee Stock Ownership Plan (“ESOP”) shares, along with small declines in deposit and loan transaction costs, regulatory and outside services and advertising and promotional expenses.  The decreases were partially offset by a $1.0 million, or 55.7%, increase in other expenses, net due to an increase in expenses related to our low-income housing partnerships and an increase in expenses associated with real estate owned (“REO”) operations.

In February 2011, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation adopted a new assessment structure for insured institutions effective April 2011.  One of the significant changes includes using average total Bank consolidated assets minus average tangible equity for the assessment base instead of average deposits and secured liabilities for the period.  As a result of the change, the deposit insurance assessment is anticipated to decrease by approximately $700 thousand in fiscal year 2012, as compared to fiscal year 2011.

Income tax expense was $10.1 million for the current quarter, compared to $8.9 million for the prior quarter.  The effective tax rate for the current quarter was 35.0% compared to 34.6% for the prior quarter.  Management anticipates the effective tax rate for fiscal year 2012 to be approximately 36%.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Quarters Ended December 31, 2011 and 2010

Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $18.8 million, compared to a net loss of $11.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.  The $30.1 million increase for the current quarter was due primarily to the $40.0 million ($26.0 million, net of income tax benefit) contribution to the Capitol Federal Foundation (the “Foundation”) in connection with the second step conversion and stock offering completed in December 2010 (the “corporate reorganization”).  Additionally, net interest income increased $5.4 million, or 13.4%, from $40.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 to $45.4 million for the current quarter.  The increase in net interest income was due primarily to a decrease in interest expense of $7.8 million, or 16.5%, partially offset by a decrease in interest income of $2.4 million, or 2.8%.  The net interest margin increased 10 basis points, from 1.88% for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 to 1.98% for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, largely due to the decrease in interest expense on the certificate of deposit portfolio and other borrowings.  

The following table presents selected financial results and performance ratios for the Company for the quarters ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.  Because of the magnitude and non-recurring nature of the $40.0 million contribution to the Foundation in connection with the corporate reorganization in December 2010, management believes it is important for comparability purposes to present selected financial results and performance ratios excluding the contribution to the Foundation.  The adjusted financial results and ratios for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 are not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

(1) The adjusted financial results and ratios are not presented in accordance with GAAP as the amounts and ratios exclude the effect of the contribution to the Foundation, net of income tax benefit. The contribution to the Foundation of $26.0 million takes into account the $14.0 million of income tax benefit associated with the $40.0 million contribution.

Total interest and dividend income for the current quarter was $84.8 million compared to $87.2 million for the prior year quarter.  The $2.4 million, or 2.8%, decrease was primarily a result of a decrease in interest income on loans receivable of $5.2 million, or 8.0%, partially offset by an increase in interest income on MBS of $3.0 million, or 19.0%.  The decrease in interest income on loans receivable was the result of a 46 basis point decrease in the average yield to 4.67% for the period, partially offset by an increase of $54.4 million in the average balance of the portfolio.  The decrease in the weighted average yield was due to loan endorsements, ARMs repricing down to lower market rates, refinances, loan originations at current market rates below that of the existing portfolio, and repayment of loans with rates higher than the portfolio. The $3.0 million, or 19.0%, increase in interest income on MBS was a result of a $778.2 million increase in the average balance of the portfolio, partially offset by a decrease of 76 basis points in the weighted average yield to 3.09% for the current quarter.  The increase in the average balance was a result of purchases funded primarily by the proceeds from the corporate reorganization in December 2010.  The weighted average yield decreased between the two periods due to purchases of MBS at a lower average yield than the existing portfolio between the two periods, repayments on MBS with yields higher than the existing portfolio, and adjustable-rate securities repricing to lower market rates. 

Interest expense decreased $7.7 million, or 16.5%, to $39.5 million for the current quarter, from $47.2 million for the prior year period.  The decrease in interest expense was due primarily to a decrease in interest expense on deposits and other borrowings.  The $4.6 million, or 26.4%, decrease in interest expense on deposits was due primarily to a decrease of 44 basis points in the average rate paid on the certificate of deposit portfolio, from 2.21% for the prior year quarter to 1.77% for the current year quarter, as the portfolio continued to reprice to lower market rates, and a $187.3 million decrease in the average balance of the certificate of deposit portfolio.  The decrease in the average balance was primarily in medium and short-term certificates, partially offset by an increase in long-term certificates, as management competitively priced our longer term certificates in order to lengthen the weighted average maturity of the retail certificate of deposit portfolio in this lower rate environment.  Additionally, there was an increase in the money market portfolio, as some maturing certificates were reinvested into the money market portfolio.  The $2.4 million, or 35.7%, decrease in interest expense on other borrowings was primarily due to a $234.6 million decrease in the average balance.  Between periods, $250.0 million of repurchase agreements matured and were not replaced, $175.0 million of which were repaid with FHLB advances.  Additionally, the Junior Subordinated Deferrable Interest Debentures of $53.6 million were repaid.  Interest expense on FHLB advances decreased $792 thousand, or 3.4%, due to a decrease of 29 basis points in the average rate paid, from 3.91% for the prior year quarter to 3.62% for the current quarter, partially offset by an increase of $96.9 million in the average balance of FHLB advances. The decrease in the average rate was due to $350.0 million of new advances with a weighted average rate of 1.41% and to the maturity of $176.0 million of advance at a weighted average rate of 4.53%.  See additional information regarding borrowing activity under “Financial Condition – Liabilities.”

The Bank recorded a provision for credit losses of $540 thousand during the quarter ended December 31, 2011, compared to a provision of $650 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.  The provision recorded in the current quarter was primarily a result of an increase in historical losses in the formula analysis model related to purchased loans, and partially to changing the time periods used for certain factors in the formula analysis model to incorporate more recent data trends in the model. 

Total other expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 were $22.1 million, compared to $63.3 million in the prior year period.  The $41.2 million, or 65.2%, decrease was due to a $40.0 million cash contribution to the Foundation in connection with the corporate reorganization in the prior year quarter.  Other expenses, net decreased $1.3 million, or 31.5%, primarily due to an impairment and valuation allowance taken on the mortgage-servicing rights asset in the prior year quarter and a decrease in expenses related to REO operations, partially offset by an increase in expenses related to our low-income housing partnerships. 

Income tax expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $10.1 million compared to income tax benefit of $6.4 million for the prior year period.  The increase in income tax expense between the periods was primarily a result of the $40.0 million contribution to the Foundation, which resulted in $14.0 million of income tax benefit.  The effective tax rate for the current quarter was 35.0% compared to 36.3% in the prior year quarter.  The decrease in the effective tax rate between periods was due to pre-tax loss in the prior year quarter compared to pre-tax income in the current quarter.

Financial Condition as of December 31, 2011

Assets

Total assets decreased $29.8 million, from $9.45 billion at September 30, 2011 to $9.42 billion at December 31, 2011, due to a $156.4 million decrease in securities, partially offset by a $75.2 million increase in loans receivable.  The decrease in securities was a result of calls and maturities that were not reinvested in their entirety into the securities portfolio.  

The net loans receivable portfolio increased $75.2, million, or at an annualized rate of 5.8%, to $5.22 billion at December 31, 2011, from $5.15 billion at September 30, 2011.  The increase in loans receivable was due primarily to an increase in the one- to four-family portfolio as a result of originations and purchases.  During the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Bank purchased $63.6 million in one- to four-family correspondent loans, compared to $43.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.   The Bank also purchased $20.3 million of one- to four-family loans in a bulk package during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.  

The following table presents the principal balance, weighted average credit score, loan-to-value (“LTV”) ratio, and the average principal balance for our one- to four-family loans at the dates presented.  Credit scores are typically updated in 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, broker price opinion or automated valuation model.  In most cases, the most recent appraisal was obtained at the time of origination.

Since March 31, 2010, the Bank has entered into correspondent lending relationships with 13 new correspondent lenders in our local market areas and in states outside of our local market areas.  At December 31, 2011, the Bank had 19 correspondent lending relationships.  Management continues its efforts to expand our network of lending relationships related to our bulk and correspondent purchase programs that would provide mortgage loans in selected geographic locations that adhere to the Bank’s underwriting standards.

The following table presents the activity in our one- to four-family loan portfolio for the periods presented, excluding endorsement activity, during the quarter ended December 31, 2011.  In an effort to offset the impact of repayments and to retain our customers, the Bank offers existing one- to four-family loan customers whose loans have not been sold to third parties, who have not been delinquent on their contractual loan payments for the previous 12 months and are not currently in bankruptcy, the opportunity, for a fee, to endorse their original loan terms to current loan terms being offered.  This program is also offered to borrowers whose loans we service that were acquired through correspondents.

Total liabilities decreased $21.5 million, from $7.51 billion at September 30, 2011 to $7.49 billion at December 31, 2011, due primarily to a decrease of $32.9 million in escrow funds due to the payment of real estate taxes and insurance on behalf of our borrowers. The following table presents FHLB advance and repurchase agreement activity for the periods presented.  The rate presented is the contractual rate, and the weighted average maturity (“WAM”) is the remaining weighted average contractual term in months.

Stockholders’ equity

Stockholders’ equity decreased $8.2 million, from $1.94 billion at September 30, 2011 to $1.93 billion at December 31, 2011.  The decrease was due primarily to dividends paid of $28.3 million, partially offset by net income of $18.8 million.  The $28.3 million of dividend payments consisted of a quarterly dividend of $12.1 million and a special dividend of $16.2 million related to fiscal year 2011 earnings, per the Company’s dividend policy.  The special year-end dividend is the result of the Board of Directors’ commitment to distribute to stockholders 100% of the annual earnings, excluding the contribution to the Foundation, of Capitol Federal Financial, Inc. for the first two fiscal years following the corporate reorganization.  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.  On January 24, 2012, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per share, which will equate to approximately $12.1 million, payable on February 17, 2012.  

On December 21, 2011, the Company announced that the Board of Directors approved the repurchase of up to $193.0 million of the Company’s common stock.  There were no stock repurchases during the current quarter.  This plan has no expiration date.

At the annual meeting held on January 24, 2012, stockholders approved the 2012 Equity Incentive Plan, which will permit the granting of stock options, restricted stock and other equity awards.  No future awards will be made under the 2000 Stock Option and Incentive Plan or the 2000 Recognition and Retention Plan.

(1) 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.

(2) The $1.5 million property classified as Other REO 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.  As permitted by the OTS, the Bank had been establishing SVAs for potential loan loss amounts.  Starting with the March 31, 2012 reporting period, the Bank will be required to file a Call Report with the OCC.  The OCC requirements do not permit SVAs; rather, loan charge-offs are required.  Management will implement a loan charge-off policy during the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 in order to be in compliance with the OCC requirements.  When the charge-off policy is implemented, all SVAs recorded at December 31, 2011 will be charged off.  This will not impact the provision for credit losses, and therefore have no additional income statement impact, as the amounts were expensed in previous periods; however, it will reduce the ACL and related loan balances.  The adjusted ratios in the following table present the ratios as if all SVAs at December 31, 2011, or $3.5 million, would have been charged-off at December 31, 2011.

(1)  The WAL of investment securities and MBS is the estimated remaining maturity after projected 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 transactional (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)  Rate presented is contractual rate.

Average Balance Sheet  

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 December 31, 2011.  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 tax-equivalent basis.
