“This quarter we continued to achieve significant loan growth, particularly in our higher yielding commercial and multifamily and floating home loan portfolios,” said Laurie Stewart, President and CEO of the Company and the Bank. “We also continue to maintain our strong net interest margin despite a rising interest rate environment as our noninterest-bearing deposits continue to grow,” concluded Ms. Stewart.

Highlights for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 include:

  • Loans held for portfolio increased 4.5% to $617.2 million at September 30, 2018, from $590.8 million at June 30, 2018, and increased 16.9% from $528.2 million at September 30, 2017;

Non-interest bearing deposits totaled 18.5% of total deposits at September 30, 2018, compared to 15.7% at June 30, 2018 and 14.6% at September 30, 2017;

Operating Results

Net interest income remained stable, decreasing slightly by $44,000, or 0.6%, to $6.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and increased $711,000, or 11.5% from $6.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The change from the prior quarter and the same quarter one year ago was primarily as a result of higher interest income partially offset by an increase in interest expense.

Interest income increased $147,000, or 1.8%, to $8.3 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $8.2 million for the second quarter of 2018 and increased $1.2 million, or 17.6%, from $7.1 million for the third quarter of 2017. Interest income on loans increased $1.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same period in 2017 and increased $33,000 from the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The increase in interest income on loans from both periods was due to higher average loan balances, as loan originations exceeded loan repayments during the periods, and higher average loan yields. The average loans held for portfolio balance was $604.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 compared to $576.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and $516.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The average yield on loans held for portfolio was 5.37% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 compared to 5.35% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and 5.29% for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. Interest income on the investment portfolio and cash and cash equivalents increased $144,000 during the third quarter of 2018 due to the rise in market interest rates during the last year compared to one year ago and increased $114,000 from the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Interest expense increased $191,000, or 15.6%, to $1.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to $1.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and increased $533,000, or 60.6%, compared to $880,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The increase from the sequential quarter and the same period in 2017 was primarily due to the increase in the average balance and cost of FHLB borrowings. The average balance of borrowings increased $11.9 million, or 17.5%, to $79.8 million at September 30, 2018 from $67.9 million at June 30, 2018 and increased $58.2 million, or 269.7% from $21.6 million at September 30, 2017. The cost of borrowings increased to 2.20% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 compared to 2.01% for the second quarter of 2018 and 1.33% for the third quarter of 2017. We utilize borrowings to supplement our deposits to support loan growth. The rise in the cost of borrowings resulted from the increase in the targeted federal funds rate over the past quarter and year. Interest expense on deposits increased $93,000 or 10.6%, to $974,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to $881,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and increased $166,000, or 20.6%, from $808,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The increase in deposit expense was driven by both the rise in the average balance of deposits as well as the cost of deposits. The average cost of deposits was 0.72% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to 0.67% for the second quarter of 2018 and 0.63% for the third quarter of 2017.

The net interest margin remained unchanged at 4.24% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and decreased from 4.35% for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The decrease from prior year was due to higher funding costs as a result of an increase in the average cost and balance of both deposits and FHLB borrowings.

We recorded a provision for loan losses of $250,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to $150,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and $250,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The increase in the provision for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 from the linked quarter was primarily due to an increase in loans held for portfolio, which increased 4.5% from the second quarter of 2018, and to a lesser extent the increase in non-performing loans. While loans held for portfolio at September 30, 2018 increased 16.9% from the comparable quarter of 2017, non-performing loans declined $1.0 million or 28.3%, resulting in no change in the provision for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same quarter in 2017.

Noninterest income increased $408,000, or 37.5%, to $1.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to $1.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and increased $672,000, or 81.4%, compared to $826,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The increase from the sequential quarter was primarily from the sale of certain securities, included in other noninterest income, and an increase in bank-owned life insurance income, partially offset by a decrease in mortgage servicing income. The increase from the same period in 2017 was a result of increases in service charges and fees, bank-owned life insurance income and in net gain on sale of loans.

Noninterest expense increased $467,000, or 8.6%, to $5.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, from $5.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and increased $934,000, or 18.9%, from $4.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

The increases from quarter ended June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017 were primarily due to higher salaries and benefits, regulatory assessments, data processing and operations expenses. Salaries and benefits expense increased $272,000 from sequential quarter primarily due to higher medical expenses. Salaries and benefits expense increased $550,000 compared to the third quarter of 2017 primarily due to an increase in the number of full-time equivalent employees as a result of the addition of our University Place branch and loan production office in Sequim in 2017. In addition, the percent of incentive bonuses paid out quarterly increased starting in January 2018, which also contributed to the period-over-period increase. Operations expense increased $82,000 from the quarter ended June 30, 2018, and increased $278,000 from the quarter ended September 30, 2017, primarily due to an increase in audit fees, professional fees and loan related expenses. For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, data processing expense increased $80,000 or 18.0% due to higher transaction volume and regulatory assessments increased $56,000 or 70.0% due to an increase in deposit insurance premiums reflecting our increased asset size compared to the same quarter a year ago.

The efficiency ratio for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 was 69.9%, compared to 67.3% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and 70.4% for the third quarter of 2017. The weakening of the efficiency ratio compared to prior quarter was primarily due to higher noninterest expense and a decrease in net interest income. The improvement in the efficiency ratio compared to the same quarter in 2017 was due primarily to an increase in noninterest income and net interest income.

The provision for income taxes decreased slightly for the third quarter of 2018, compared to the sequential quarter as a result of a decrease in income before taxes. The provision for income taxes decreased $159,000, or 26.4%, compared to the third quarter of 2017 as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December 2017, which reduced our federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% beginning in January 2018.

Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management and Credit Quality

Total assets at September 30, 2018 were $715.3 million, compared to $686.2 million at June 30, 2018 and $622.5 million at September 30, 2017. The increase from both the sequential quarter and same quarter last year was primarily a result of an increase in loans held for portfolio. In addition, FHLB stock increased $1.0 million to $4.6 million at September 30, 2018, from $3.6 million at June 30, 2018 and increased to $2.8 million, from $1.8 million at September 30, 2017, as a result of our utilizing additional FHLB advances to fund loan growth.

Loans held for portfolio totaled $617.2 million at September 30, 2018, compared to $590.8 million at June 30, 2018 and $528.2 million at September 30, 2017. All loan categories experienced an increase as compared to the comparative prior periods other than commercial business, construction and land, and other consumer loans. The largest increases in the loan portfolio compared to the prior quarter were in commercial and multifamily, floating homes and one-to-four family loan portfolios. The commercial and multifamily loan portfolio increased $17.1 million, or 7.2%, to $254.1 million, the floating homes loan portfolio increased $7.7 million, or 23.0%, to $41.4 million, and the one- to four- family loan portfolio increased $4.1 million, or 2.5%, to $170.5 million. The largest increases in the loan portfolio compared to the year ago quarter were in the commercial and multifamily loan portfolio, which increased $52.6 million, or 26.1%, the floating homes loan portfolio, which increased $14.7 million, or 55.0%, and the one- to-four family loan portfolio, which increased $13.6 million, or 8.7%. At September 30, 2018, commercial and multifamily real estate loans were approximately 41.0% of total loans. One- to-four family loans, including home equity loans, were approximately 32.1% of total loans. Consumer loans, consisting of manufactured homes, floating homes and other consumer loans were approximately 10.6% of total loans, construction and land loans were approximately 9.8% of total loans and commercial business loans were approximately 6.4% of total loans at September 30, 2018.

Cash and cash equivalents increased $2.9 million, or 4.81%, to $62.3 million at September 30, 2018, compared to $59.4 million at June 30, 2018 and increased $1.6 million or 2.71% from $60.7 million at September 30, 2017.

Deposits increased $416,000, or 0.1%, to $539.8 million at September 30, 2018, compared to $539.4 million at June 30, 2018 and increased $15.0 million, or 2.9%, compared to $524.8 million at September 30, 2017. The increase in deposits during the third quarter of 2018 compared to the sequential quarter reflects our continued focus on generating low cost deposits to fund our loan growth. The increase in deposits in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter last year was the result of organic growth and $14.5 million in deposits assumed as a result of the purchase of our University Place branch in 2017. FHLB borrowings increased to $96.5 million at September 30, 2018, compared to $71.0 million at June 30, 2018 and increased $68.5 million from $28.0 million at September 30, 2017.

Nonperforming assets (“NPAs”), which are comprised of non-accrual loans, nonperforming troubled debt restructurings (“TDRs”), other real estate owned (“OREO”) and other repossessed assets, increased $468,000 to $3.1 million at September 30, 2018, from $2.6 million at June 30, 2018, and decreased $1.4 million from $4.5 million at September 30, 2017. NPAs to total assets were 0.44%, 0.39% and 0.73% at September 30, 2018, June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively.

  2018   2018   2017
Allowance for Loan Losses                
Balance at beginning of period $ 5,503     $ 5,328     $ 4,835

Allowance for loan losses to total nonperforming loans   228.84 %     270.55 %     142.48 %

The increase in the allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2018, compared to the prior quarter and the same period a year ago was due to an increase in the balance of the loan portfolio. Total loans at September 30, 2018, increased $26.5 million, or 4.5%, and $89.0 million, or 16.9%, compared to June 30, 2018, and September 30, 2017, respectively. Net loan charge-offs during the third quarter of 2018 totaled $5,000 compared to net recoveries of $25,000 for the second quarter of 2018 and net charge-offs of $94,000 for the third quarter of 2017.

The allowance for loan losses to total loans held for portfolio remained unchanged at 0.93% for both the quarters ended September 30, 2018 and June 30, 2018 and decreased slightly from 0.94% for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The decline in the ratio from a year ago reflects the improvement in the credit quality of our portfolio over the last year. The allowance for loan losses as a percent of nonperforming loans decreased to 228.8% at September 30, 2018 compared to 270.6% at June 30, 2018 and increased from 142.5% at September 30, 2017.
