American Savings Bank Reports Third Quarter 2013 Earnings Net Income of $15.3 Million Bank Continues to Deliver Solid Results PR Newswire HONOLULU, Oct. 30, 2013 HONOLULU, Oct. 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 third quarter of 2013 of $15.3 million, compared to $15.9 million in the second (or linked) quarter of 2013 and $14.2 million in the third quarter of 2012. "American continued to deliver stable results from its high quality balance sheet in a challenging regulatory and interest rate environment. We continued to prudently grow loans, increasing our loan portfolio at a rate of 9.3% since the end of last year. At the same time, improved credit quality has lowered our provision expense for loan losses, as nonperforming assets declined 24% since the end of last year and net loan charge-offs declined 75% year-to-date compared to the same period last year. In the short term, the lower credit costs are offsetting the impact of regulatory caps on interchange fees that became effective for us this quarter," said Richard Wacker, president and chief executive officer of American. Third quarter 2013 net income was $0.6 million lower than the linked quarter primarily driven by $1 million (after-tax) lower fees from other financial services as expected under the Durbin Amendment which placed a limit on interchange fees and became effective on July1,2013 for American. In the quarter, American completed the strategic sale of its credit card portfolio and successfully launched a new, more competitive offering for its customers, including a full range of consumer and business credit card products and services. Compared to the linked quarter (on an after-tax basis), the aggregate impact of the transaction was nominal as the net gain on sale of less than $1 million recorded in the third quarter of 2013 was roughly equivalent to the lower provision expense in the second quarter of 2013 related to the release of credit card reserves. For the full year, the net gain is expected to be largely offset by lower credit card-related income for the remainder of the year. Compared to the same quarter of 2012, net income increased by $1.1 million primarily driven by (after-tax and rounded to the nearest million): o$2 million lower provision for loan losses; o$1 million net gain on the sale of the credit card portfolio (mentioned above); and o$1 million higher fee income on other financial products. These were largely offset by (after-tax): o$2 million lower mortgage banking income; and o$1 million lower fees from other financial services due to lower interchange fees mentioned above. Net interest margin was 3.73% in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 3.79% in the linked quarter and 3.92% in the third quarter of 2012. The decline in net interest margin compared to the linked quarter was largely attributable to lower yields on loans and a lower level of commercial loan prepayments and associated fees. The effect of these on net interest income was offset by loan growth, particularly in the commercial markets, home equity lines of credit and residential portfolios during the quarter. Compared to the third quarter of 2012, the net interest margin decline was primarily due to lower yields on interest-earning assets as loan portfolios continued to re-price down in the low interest rate environment. Provision for loan losses (pretax) was $0.1 million in the third quarter compared to a net credit of $1.0 million in the linked quarter of 2013 and provision of $3.6 million in the third quarter of 2012. As discussed earlier, in the second quarter of 2013, American released $1million (pretax) of reserves in connection with the decision to sell its credit card portfolio. In the third quarter of 2013, provision for loan losses for loan growth and current quarter charge-offs were offset by the release of reserves related to the payoff of a specific commercial loan and recoveries of previously charged-off loans reflecting the ongoing improvement in the quality of the bank's loan portfolio. The third quarter 2013 net charge-off ratio was nil from 0.08% in the linked quarter and 0.35% in the prior year quarter. Non-interest expense (pretax) was $39.7 million in the third quarter of 2013 consistent with $39.8million in the linked quarter and $38.6 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increase from the prior year quarter is primarily driven by higher compensation expense related to increased production as well as the costs associated with sale of the credit card portfolio. Loans grew by $92 million and $265 million in the third quarter and year-to-date 2013, respectively. Third quarter loan growth was primarily driven by increases in the commercial markets and commercial real estate portfolios and increases in home equity lines of credit and residential mortgages. Year-to-date annualized loan growth was 9.3%. Total deposits were $4.3 billion at September 30, 2013, up $35 million from June30,2013, primarily due to the increases in commercial deposits. Other borrowings increased by $52 million to $240 million in the third quarter as we executed a 5-year Federal Home Loan Bank borrowing agreement to support our loan growth. The average cost of funds remained low at 0.22% for the third quarter 2013, unchanged from the linked quarter and down 3basis points from the same period last year. Overall, return on average equity and return on average assets were strong at 12.1% and 1.20%, 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 September 30, 2013. Note: Amounts indicated as "after-tax" in this earnings release are based upon adjusting items for the composite statutory tax rate of 40% for the bank.
