“Our financial results continue to be impacted by the record pace and level of increases in short-term interest rates over the last 15 months,” said Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The efforts by the Federal Reserve to rein in inflation by increasing short-term interest rates over the past six quarters to historically high levels, has put increased pressure on our net interest margins as lower cost transactional deposit and savings accounts have migrated to higher cost time deposits. We expect our net interest margin to continue to decline for the remainder of 2023. Despite these challenges, we have enhanced our liquidity levels, continued to seek ways to retain and grow deposits through promotional campaigns, and focused on maintaining our lending base. Throughout all of this, we have been able to maintain our strong capital levels, which are well above regulatory required levels, our asset quality remains solid, and we continue to have ample liquidity.”

Interest Income

The Federal Reserve Bank has increased short-term interest rates by 475 basis points since March 2022, which has increased the Company’s cost of funds. This coupled with the inverted yield curve where longer term rates are not sufficiently higher than funding costs, have made the Company’s conservative business model challenging to fulfill its mission to continue to help its customers achieve homeownership. This has led to continued pressure on the Company’s net interest margin in the second quarter. To mitigate the impact of a lower net interest margin, the Company continues to focus on reducing expenses while being mindful of preserving the strength of its underwriting standards and policies. Net interest income decreased by $2.98 million to $11.09 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $14.07 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. Total interest income was $17.29 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to $15.37 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The $1.92 million increase in total interest income was primarily due to an $803,000 increase in interest earned on other investments, a $597,000 increase in interest earned on investment securities, and a $521,000 increase in interest earned on loans. Interest income on other investments rose by $803,000 from $267,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, to $1.07 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023. The increase in interest income on other investments is primarily due to a 328 basis point increase in the interest rate paid on cash balances at the Federal Reserve Bank. The increase in interest income on investment securities resulted from a $28.70 million increase in the average securities balance together with a 24 basis point increase in the average securities yield. The increase in interest income on loans resulted from a $9.52 million increase in the average loan balance together with a 13 basis point increase in the average loan yield.

Interest Expense and Provision for Credit Losses

As the result of the increases in short-term interest rates, total interest expense increased by $4.90 million to $6.20 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $1.30 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. Interest expense on deposits increased by $3.59 million to $4.32 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $738,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase in interest expense on deposits was primarily due to an increase in interest expense on certificates of deposit (CD). Interest expense on CDs rose by $3.31 million from $512,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, to $3.82 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023. The increase in interest expense was primarily due to a 252 basis point increase in the average cost of CDs and a $200.81 million increase in the average CD balance. The increase in the average cost of CDs occurred as interest rates were raised in response to the increase in market interest rates. The increase in the average balance of CDs occurred as customers transferred balances from lower rate savings accounts to higher rate CDs. Interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances rose from $516,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, to $1.83 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023. The increase in interest expense on FHLB advances rose primarily because of a 134 basis point increase in the average cost of advances and a $120.39 million increase in the average advance balance. To enhance the Company’s liquidity and to fund deposit withdrawals, additional FHLB advances were obtained in 2023.

The Company recorded $212,000 of credit loss provisions in the three months ended June 30, 2023. The Company reversed $326,000 of credit loss provisions in the three months ended June 30, 2022. In 2023, the Company adopted the current expected credit loss accounting standard to calculate its allowance for credit losses. The increase in the credit loss provision for the three months ended June 30, 2023, is primarily due to a decrease in forecasted prepayments and recoveries in the real estate portfolio, which increased the expected future losses on real estate loans.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $690,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to $800,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022. Other non-interest income decreased by $126,000 to $60,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $186,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, primarily due to interest received on a bank-owned life insurance recovery in the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense decreased to $9.51 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to $9.57 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. Salaries and employee benefits decreased by $249,000 to $5.14 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $5.39 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The reduction in salaries and employee benefits is due to decreases in stock benefit plan expenses and deferred compensation accruals. Occupancy expenses rose from $1.65 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, to $1.76 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, primarily because of an increase in repair and maintenance expenses. Federal deposit insurance premium expense rose from $143,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, to $246,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2023, because of an increase in the FDIC insurance premium rate.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2023, was $563,000 with an effective tax rate of 27.33% compared to $1.51 million with an effective tax rate of 26.91% for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease in income tax expense was primarily due to a $3.56 million decrease in income before income taxes during the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $2.22 billion at June 30, 2023 and $2.17 billion at December 31, 2022. Loans receivable increased by $10.42 million and was $1.31 billion at June 30, 2023 and $1.29 billion at December 31, 2022. The increase in loans receivable occurred as new loan originations exceeded loan repayments and sales. Investment securities, including available for sale securities, decreased by $12.56 million to $726.04 million at June 30, 2023 from $738.59 million at December 31, 2022. The decrease in investment securities occurred because of principal repayments on mortgage-backed securities. Cash and cash equivalents increased by $47.11 million to $87.66 million at June 30, 2023 from $40.55 million at December 31, 2022. The increase in cash and cash equivalents occurred as the Company obtained additional advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank to enhance its liquidity.

Deposits decreased by $70.44 million from $1.72 billion at December 31, 2022 to $1.65 billion at June 30, 2023. The decrease in deposits included a planned decrease of $13.78 million in CDs from state and local governments. The remaining $56.66 million decrease in retail deposits occurred as customers sought higher interest rates on their deposits than what the Company pays. As of June 30, 2023, 85% of total deposits are FDIC insured or fully collateralized. FHLB advances increased by $125.00 million to $266.00 million at June 30, 2023 from $141.00 million at December 31, 2022. The proceeds from the advances were used to enhance liquidity and to fund deposit withdrawals. Total stockholders’ equity decreased to $250.63 million at June 30, 2023 from $256.55 million at December 31, 2022. The decrease in stockholders’ equity occurred primarily because the Company’s dividends paid to shareholders, share repurchases, and the impact to retained earnings from the adoption of the current expected credit loss (CECL) standard to calculate its allowance for credit losses exceeded the Company’s net income.

Capital Management

The Company is in its twelfth share repurchase program and repurchased 162,143 shares during the three months ending June 30, 2023. Through June 30, 2023, the Company has repurchased 4,396,055 shares through all of its share repurchase programs. The shares repurchased represent 35.94% of the total shares issued in its initial public offering.

Asset Quality

Credit quality continues to be extremely important and we adhere to our strict underwriting standards. The Company had $1.02 million in delinquent mortgage loans 90 days or more past due at June 30, 2023, compared to $559,000 at December 31, 2022. Non-performing assets totaled $2.35 million at June 30, 2023, compared to $2.30 million at December 31, 2022. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 0.11% at June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022. The allowance for credit losses at June 30, 2023 was $5.26 million and represented 0.40% of total loans, compared to $2.03 million and 0.16% of total loans as of December 31, 2022. The increase in the ratio of allowance for credit losses to total loans occurred when the Company adopted the CECL accounting standard to calculate its allowance for credit losses on January 1, 2023. Upon adoption of the standard, the Company recorded a $3.16 million increase to its allowance for credit losses. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to non-performing loans rose to 224.20% at June 30, 2023, compared to 88.31% at December 31, 2022 as a result of the increase in the allowance for credit losses.
