American Savings Bank Reports Third Quarter 2012 Earnings Net Income of $14.2 Million Bank Continues to Deliver Solid Results PR Newswire HONOLULU, Oct. 30, 2012 HONOLULU, Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --American Savings Bank, F.S.B. (American), a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (HEI) (NYSE: HE) today reported net income for the third quarter of 2012 of $14.2 million, compared with $14.2 million in the second, or linked, quarter of 2012 and $15.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. "In this prolonged low interest rate environment, American Savings Bank's stable results reflect our continued disciplined approach to control interest rate and credit risk and to position ourselves for future growth. Our loan portfolio grew by $83 million over the prior year and revenues benefited from strong market share gains in our residential mortgage activities," said Richard Wacker, president and chief executive officer of American. Third quarter 2012 net income of $14.2 million was consistent with the linked quarter as higher revenue, primarily driven by gains on sales of loans, was offset by a slightly higher provision for loan losses and noninterest expense. Compared to the same quarter of 2011, net income declined by $1.2 million. The decline was largely driven by (on an after-tax basis): o$2 million higher noninterest expense primarily attributable to spending for new products and projects aimed at longer-term growth; and o$1 million lower net interest income from declining yields on assets which were partially offset by loan growth. These were partially offset by $2 million (after-tax) higher revenue from gains on sale of new residential mortgages originated in the quarter. Residential mortgage production totaled $272million in the quarter, compared to $123 million in the same quarter of the prior year, outperforming the overall Hawaii market growth. Net interest margin was 3.92% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 3.97% in the linked quarter and 4.11% in the third quarter of 2011. The decline in net interest margin was attributable to lower yields on interest-earning assets due to the low interest rate environment. Provision for loan losses (pretax) was $3.6 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $2.4 million in the linked quarter and $3.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. Year-to-date provision expense was $9.5 million, down from $10.9 million in the same period last year and consistent with overall credit quality trends and the improvement in the Hawaii economy. Non-interest expense (pretax) was $38.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, up from $37.6million in the linked quarter and $35.6 million in the third quarter of 2011 due primarily to spending on new products and projects for future growth. Loan growth continued in the third quarter of 2012 with a year-to-date annualized growth rate of 2.3%, in line with the bank's target of low to mid-single digit loan growth for the year. Consistent with American's strategy to control interest rate risk, year-to-date loan growth was primarily driven by shorter-duration and variable rate loans, offset by a controlled decline in the proportion of long-term fixed rate residential mortgages and land loans. Total deposits were $4.1 billion at September 30, 2012, down $10 million from June30,2012 primarily due to the strategic decline of higher costing certificates of deposit of $23million. Low-cost core deposits increased $13 million during the quarter to $3.6 billion at September 30, 2012. Average cost of funds was a very low 0.25% for third quarter 2012, down 2basis points from the linked quarter. Overall, return on average equity and return on average assets were 11.2% and 1.15%, respectively, in the quarter. American's solid results enabled it to pay dividends of $10 million to HEI in the quarter while maintaining healthy capital levels -- leverage ratio of 9.3% and total risk-based capital ratio of 12.9% at September 30, 2012.
