American Savings Bank Reports Second Quarter 2013 Earnings Net Income of $15.9 Million Bank Continues to Deliver Solid Results PR Newswire HONOLULU, July 30, 2013 HONOLULU, July 30, 2013 /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 second quarter of 2013 of $15.9 million, compared to $14.2 million in both the first (or linked) quarter of 2013 and in the second quarter of 2012. "American delivered solid results in the second quarter as good loan growth helped us offset the continued pressure of the low interest rate environment. We experienced very low credit costs in the quarter thanks to good risk management systems and the positive trends in the Hawaii economy. We also achieved another strategic objective, reaching agreement for the sale of our credit card portfolio coupled with the introduction of a new, more competitive offering for our customers," said Richard Wacker, president and chief executive officer of American. Second quarter 2013 net income was $1.8 million higher than the linked quarter primarily driven by (after-tax): o$2 million lower provision for loan losses, $1 million of which related to the planned third quarter sale of American's credit card portfolio; and o$1 million higher gains on sales of investment securities. These were largely offset by (after-tax): o$1 million lower mortgage banking income as a larger proportion of new residential mortgages were added to the portfolio rather than sold; and o$1 million higher noninterest expense. Compared to the same quarter of 2012, the $1.7 million net income increase was primarily driven by (after-tax): o$2 million lower provision for loan losses (as discussed above); and o$1 million higher gains on sales of investment securities. These were offset by $1 million (after-tax) higher noninterest expense primarily due to targeted staffing and information technology (IT) expense increases. Net interest margin (NIM) was 3.79% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to 3.78% in the linked quarter and 3.97% in the second quarter of 2012. Loan growth, particularly in residential mortgages, and higher fees associated with the prepayment of some large commercial loans in the quarter offset the continued decline in stated rates that totaled five basis points compared to the linked quarter. The decline in net interest margin compared to the prior year quarter was primarily attributable to lower yields on interest-earning assets as loans continued to re-price down in the low interest rate environment. Provision for loan losses (pretax) was a net credit of $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to net charges of $1.9 million in the linked quarter and $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. In the second quarter of 2013, American released $1 million (pretax) of reserves in connection with the agreement to sell its credit card portfolio, a transaction that is expected to close in the third quarter. No additional provision expense was incurred: increases in the reserve for loan growth and charge-offs were offset by approximately $3million (pretax) of reversals associated with specific commercial loan paydowns, recoveries of previously charged off consumer loans, and the ongoing improvement in the quality of the bank's loan portfolio. The second quarter 2013 net charge-off ratio improved to 0.08% from 0.12% in the linked quarter and 0.19% in the prior year quarter. Non-interest expense (pretax) was $39.8 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to $38.7million in the linked quarter and $37.6 million in the second quarter of 2012. The increase from the linked quarter is primarily attributable to the timing of marketing expenses and additional reserves on unfunded commercial lines of credit. The increase from the prior year quarter is largely due to the targeted staffing increases to support increased business volumes, IT and risk management capabilities, as well as increasing employee benefit expenses. In the second quarter and year-to-date 2013, loans grew by $108 million and $173 million, respectively. This quarter's loan growth was primarily driven by residential mortgages as American allocated more of its continued strong production to the portfolio. Year-to-date annualized loan growth was 9.1%. Total deposits were $4.3 billion at June 30, 2013, down $36 million from March31,2013, primarily due to the decreases in commercial deposits and certificates of deposit. Average cost of funds remained low at 0.22% for the second quarter 2013, consistent with the linked quarter and down 5basis points from the same period last year. Overall, return on average equity and return on average assets were strong at 12.6% and 1.25%, respectively, in the quarter. American's solid results enabled it to pay dividends of $10million to HEI in the quarter while maintaining healthy capital levels -- leverage ratio of 9.3% and total risk-based capital ratio of 12.5% at June 30, 2013.
