BENEFICIAL MUTUAL BANCORP, INC. ANNOUNCES QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2013 EARNINGS

 

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, April 25, 2013 — Beneficial Mutual Bancorp, Inc. (“Beneficial”) (NASDAQGS: BNCL), the parent company of Beneficial Bank (the “Bank”), today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  Beneficial recorded net income of $3.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 compared to net income of $3.9 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, recorded for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

 

The low interest rate environment has reduced the yields on our investment and loan portfolios resulting in net interest income decreasing $2.9 million to $31.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 compared to $34.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. Net interest margin decreased to 2.85% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 from 3.26% for the same period in 2012 due to the low rate environment as well as continued weak loan demand. We expect that the continued low interest rate environment will put pressure on net interest margin in future periods.

 

Our asset quality metrics continue to improve as we reduce our non-performing asset levels.  At March 31, 2013, our non-performing assets were $98.7 million, representing a decrease of $5.5 million, or 5.3%, from $104.2 million at December 31, 2012, and a $50.0 million decrease, or 33.7%, from $148.7 million at March 31, 2012. Reserves as a percentage of non-performing loans, excluding government guaranteed student loans, totaled 90.9% at March 31, 2013 compared to 84.3% at December 31, 2012 and 54.7% at March 31, 2012.  Our balance sheet remained strong at March 31, 2013, with our allowance for loan losses totaling $58.7 million, or 2.44% of total loans, compared to $57.6 million, or 2.36% of total loans, at December 31, 2012, and $55.1 million, or 2.16% of total loans, at March 31, 2012.  The provision for credit losses decreased $2.5 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 to $5.0 million from $7.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 reflecting an improvement in asset quality.  Net charge-offs during the quarter totaled $4.0 million compared to $6.6 million a year ago.

 

Gerard Cuddy, Beneficial’s President and CEO, stated, “We are encouraged by the continued improvement in our asset quality metrics as we experienced a 33.7% decrease in our non-performing assets at March 31, 2013 compared to a year ago. During the first quarter of 2013, earnings remain challenged given the slow growing economy and the related lack of loan demand in our markets.  The low interest rate environment also resulted in net interest margin compression for the quarter and we expect that the continued low interest rate environment will put pressure on net interest margin in future periods.  We remain focused on increasing profitability, further reducing our non-performing asset levels, growing our commercial loan portfolio, controlling expenses and increasing our retail and commercial customer base. During the quarter we entered into a lease for new headquarters space at 1818 Market Street, soon to be renamed “1818 Beneficial Bank Place.” This long term lease renews our commitment to remain the oldest and largest Philadelphia-based bank.  Our new location will increase our visibility in the City and will be in the heart of the business district.  We remain committed to our customers by delivering an education-based experience through The Beneficial Conversation and have made it our mission to always help them do the right thing financially.”

 

The Company also announced today that it was notified during the first quarter of 2013 by the U.S. Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) that the DOJ had initiated an investigation of the Bank under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Fair Housing Act.  The investigation results from a referral by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Bank’s primary federal regulator, and focuses on the Bank’s origination of home equity and residential mortgage loans.  The Bank is cooperating fully with the DOJ to resolve this matter.  Because the investigation is in the early stages, we cannot predict the eventual outcome of the DOJ investigation or any impact it will have on our

future operations or financial results.  Until this investigation is completed, it is unlikely that Beneficial will be filing any regulatory applications related to strategic expansion or regarding a second step conversion, which the Board had been actively evaluating.

 

Financial highlights for the quarter ended March 31, 2013:

 

·                                          Asset quality metrics continued to improve during the quarter with non-performing loans, excluding government guaranteed student loans, decreasing $3.9 million, or 5.7%, to $64.5 million at March 31, 2013 from $68.4 million at December 31, 2012 and decreasing $36.2 million, or 36.0%, from $100.7 million at March 31, 2012. Our non-performing assets ratio, excluding government guaranteed student loans, improved to 1.60% at both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, compared to 2.67% at March 31, 2012.

 

·                                          We reduced our cost of funds on deposits by 0.20% to 0.52% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, from 0.72% for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

 

·                                          Our balance sheet remained strong at March 31, 2013, with our allowance for loan losses totaling $58.7 million, or 2.44% of total loans, compared to $57.6 million, or 2.36% of total loans, at December 31, 2012, and $55.1 million, or 2.16% of total loans, at March 31, 2012. Reserves as a percentage of non-performing loans, excluding government guaranteed student loans, totaled 90.9% at March 31, 2013 compared to 84.3% at December 31, 2012 and 54.7% at March 31, 2012.

 

·                                          Beneficial repurchased 145,892 shares of its outstanding common stock during the quarter which increased total treasury shares to 3,127,921 at March 31, 2013.

 

·                                          Capital levels remain strong with tangible capital to tangible assets totaling 10.86% at March 31, 2013.

 

Balance Sheet

 

Total assets decreased $242.8 million, or 4.8%, to $4.8 billion at March 31, 2013 from $5.0 billion at December 31, 2012.  Cash and cash equivalents decreased $165.1 million to $324.8 million at March 31, 2013 from $489.9 million at December 31, 2012. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents was primarily driven by a decline in municipal deposits as a result of our planned re-pricing and run-off strategy. Cash remains elevated due to investment and loan prepayments.

 

Investments decreased $35.6 million, or 2.0%, to $1.7 billion at March 31, 2013 from $1.8 billion at December 31, 2012.  The decrease in investments during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was primarily driven by investment prepayments. We continue to focus on purchasing high quality agency bonds, and maintain a portfolio that provides a steady stream of cash flow both in the current and in rising interest rate environments.

 

Loans decreased $39.3 million, or 1.6%, to $2.4 billion at March 31, 2013 from $2.4 billion at December 31, 2012.  Despite total loan originations of $123.2 million during the quarter, our loan portfolio has decreased as a result of high commercial loan repayments and continued weak loan demand.  During the quarter ended December 31, 2012, we made a decision to begin to hold in portfolio some of our agency eligible mortgage production as the yields on these mortgages were attractive compared to the rates available on investment securities.  As a result of this decision, our mortgage banking income decreased $631 thousand to $242 thousand during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 as compared to $873 thousand during the same period last year.

 

Deposits decreased $139.1 million, or 3.5%, to $3.8 billion at March 31, 2013 from $3.9 billion at December 31, 2012.  The decrease in deposits during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was primarily the result of a $132.4 million decrease in municipal deposits which was consistent with the planned run-off associated with our re-pricing of higher-cost, non-relationship-based municipal accounts.

At March 31, 2013, stockholders’ equity increased to $634.4 million, or 13.3% of total assets, compared to $633.9 million, or 12.7% of total assets, at December 31, 2012.

 

Net Interest Income

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, Beneficial reported net interest income of $31.6 million, a decrease of $2.9 million, or 8.4%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2012. The decrease in net interest income during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same period last year was primarily the result of a reduction in the average interest rate earned on investment securities and loans, and a decline in average loan balances of $126.6 million, partially offset by a reduction in the average cost of liabilities.  Our net interest margin decreased to 2.85% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 from 3.26% for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  We expect that the persistently low interest rate environment will continue to lower yields on our investment and loan portfolios to a greater extent than we can reduce rates on deposits and other interest bearing liabilities, which will put pressure on net interest margin in future periods.

 

We have been able to lower the cost of our liabilities to 0.69% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, compared to 0.90% for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, by re-pricing higher cost deposits.  The reduction in deposit costs has been primarily due to decreasing rates on our municipal deposits coupled with the planned run-off of these deposits.

 

Non-interest Income

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, non-interest income totaled $6.9 million, a decrease of $109 thousand, or 1.5%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  The decrease was primarily due to a decrease of $631 thousand in mortgage banking income due to our decision to hold some of our residential mortgage production, partially offset by a $392 thousand increase of income from the sale of investment securities.

 

Non-interest Expense

 

Non-interest expense of $29.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 remained relatively consistent compared to non-interest expense of $29.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

 

Income Taxes

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, we recorded a provision for income taxes of $575 thousand, reflecting an effective tax rate of 15.2% compared to a provision for income taxes of $443 thousand reflecting an effective tax rate of 10.1% for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  The tax rates differ from the statutory rate of 35% principally because of tax-exempt investments, non-taxable income related to bank-owned life insurance and tax credits received on affordable housing partnerships. These tax credits relate to investments maintained by the Bank as a limited partner in partnerships that sponsor affordable housing projects utilizing low-income housing credits under the Internal Revenue Code.

 

Asset Quality

 

Non-performing loans, including loans 90 days past due and still accruing, decreased to $86.9 million at March 31, 2013, compared to $92.4 million at December 31, 2012 and $126.8 million at March 31, 2012.  Non-performing loans at March 31, 2013 included $22.4 million of government guaranteed student loans, which represented 25.8% of total non-performing loans.  Net charge-offs during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $4.0 million compared to $4.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and $6.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  At March 31, 2013, the Bank’s allowance for loan losses totaled $58.7 million, or 2.44% of total loans, compared to $57.6 million, or 2.36% of total loans, at December 31, 2012 and $55.1 million, or 2.16% of total loans, at March 31, 2012.

Capital

 

The Bank’s capital position remains strong relative to current regulatory requirements. The Bank continues to have substantial liquidity as the inflows of deposits and prepayments have largely been retained in cash or invested in high quality government-backed securities.  In addition, at March 31, 2013, we had the ability to borrow up to $1.3 billion combined from the FHLB of Pittsburgh and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Our capital ratios as of March 31, 2013 compared to December 31, 2012 and March 31, 2012, as well as our excess capital over regulatory minimums as of March 31, 2013 to be considered well capitalized, are as follows:
