STANDARD AVB FINANCIAL CORP.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (UNAUDITED)

June 30, 2019

 

(1)Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Standard AVB Financial Corp. (the “Company”) and its direct and indirect wholly owned subsidiaries, Standard Bank, PaSB (the “Bank”), and Westmoreland Investment Company. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Standard AVB Financial Corp. owns all of the outstanding shares of common stock of the Bank.

 

(2)Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with instructions to Form 10-Q, and therefore, do not include information or footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial position, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. All adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments), which, in the opinion of management are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements and to make the financial statements not misleading have been included. The unaudited consolidated financial statements and other financial information contained in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of Standard AVB Financial Corp. at and for the year ended December 31, 2018 contained in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 18, 2019. The results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019 or any future interim period. Certain amounts in the 2018 financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2019 presentation format. These reclassifications had no effect on stockholders’ equity or net income.

 

(3)Earnings per Share

 

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the earnings of the Company. The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted EPS for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018 (dollars in thousands, except per share data):

 

   Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30, 
   2019   2018   2019   2018 
Net income available to common stockholders  $2,098   $2,494   $4,266   $4,654 
                     
Basic EPS:                    
   Weighted average shares outstanding   4,652,673    4,629,297    4,655,985    4,625,859 
   Basic EPS  $0.45   $0.54   $0.92   $1.01 
                     
Diluted EPS:                    
   Weighted average shares outstanding   4,652,673    4,629,297    4,655,985    4,625,859 
   Dilutive effect of common stock equivalents   93,302    119,680    99,495    117,829 
   Total diluted weighted average shares outstanding   4,745,975    4,748,977    4,755,480    4,743,688 
   Diluted EPS  $0.44   $0.53   $0.90   $0.98 

 

(4)Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Accounting Standards Adopted in 2019

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The standard requires lessees to recognize the assets and liabilities that arise from leases on the balance sheet.  Additionally, in July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842) – Targeted Improvements, which, among other things, provided an additional transition method that allows entities to not apply the guidance in ASU 2016-02 in the comparative periods presented in the financial statements and instead to recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The Company adopted ASU 2016-02 and its related amendments as of January 1, 2019, which resulted in the recognition of finance right-of-use assets and finance lease liabilities totaling $1.1 million and $1.2 million, respectively. The Company elected to adopt the transition relief provisions from ASU 2018-11 and recorded the impact of adoption as of January 1, 2019, without restating any prior-year amounts or disclosures. Additional lease disclosures can be found in Note 10 contained herein. There was no cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings required.

Accounting Standards Pending Adoption

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which changes the impairment model for most financial assets. This Update is intended to improve financial reporting by requiring timelier recording of credit losses on loans and other financial instruments held by financial institutions and other organizations. The underlying premise of the Update is that financial assets measured at amortized cost should be presented at the net amount expected to be collected, through an allowance for credit losses that is deducted from the amortized cost basis. The allowance for credit losses should reflect management’s current estimate of credit losses that are expected to occur over the remaining life of a financial asset. The income statement will be effected for the measurement of credit losses for newly recognized financial assets, as well as the expected increases or decreases of expected credit losses that have taken place during the period. ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and early adoption is permitted for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018. With certain exceptions, transition to the new requirements will be through a cumulative effect adjustment to opening retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is adopted. The Company expects to recognize a one-time cumulative effect adjustment to the allowance for loan losses as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the new standard is effective, but cannot yet determine the magnitude of any such one-time adjustment or the overall impact of the new guidance on the consolidated financial statements. The Company has been working with a third party to evaluate the various CECL methodologies and decided to utilize the vintage method. The Company is continuing to work through implementation of that method and determine what impact it will have on the consolidated financial statements.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. To simplify the subsequent measurement of goodwill, the FASB eliminated Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. In computing the implied fair value of goodwill under Step 2, an entity had to perform procedures to determine the fair value at the impairment testing date of its assets and liabilities (including unrecognized assets and liabilities) following the procedure that would be required in determining the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. Instead, under the amendments in this Update, an entity should perform its annual, or interim, goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. An entity should recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting units fair value; however, the loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. A public business entity that is a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filer should adopt the amendments in this Update for its annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. A public business entity that is not an SEC filer should adopt the amendments in this Update for its annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. All other entities, including not-for-profit entities that are adopting the amendments in this Update should do so for their annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of the standard will have on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

 

In May 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-06, Codification Improvements to Topic 942, Financial Services-Depository and Lending, amends the guidance in Subtopic 942-740, Financial Services-Depository and Lending-Income Taxes, that is related to Circular 202 because that guidance has been rescinded by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and no longer is relevant. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718), which simplified the accounting for nonemployee share-based payment transactions. The amendments in this update expand the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. The amendments in this Update improve the following areas of nonemployee share-based payment accounting; (a) the overall measurement objective, (b) the measurement date, (c) awards with performance conditions, (d) classification reassessment of certain equity-classified awards, (e) calculated value (nonpublic entities only), and (f) intrinsic value (nonpublic entities only). The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that fiscal year. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-09, Codification Improvements, represents changes to clarify, correct errors in, or make minor improvements to the Codification. The amendments make the Codification easier to understand and easier to apply by eliminating inconsistencies and providing clarifications. The transition and effective date guidance is based on the facts and circumstances of each amendment. Some of the amendments do not require transition guidance and will be effective upon issuance of this ASU. However, many of the amendments in this ASU do have transition guidance with effective dates for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, for public business entities. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework – Changes the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurements. The Update removes the requirement to disclose the amount of and reasons for transfers between Level I and Level II of the fair value hierarchy; the policy for timing of transfers between levels; and the valuation processes for Level III fair value measurements. The Update requires disclosure of changes in unrealized gains and losses for the period included in other comprehensive income (loss) for recurring Level III fair value measurements held at the end of the reporting period and the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level III fair value measurements. This Update is effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

(4)Recent Accounting Pronouncements (Continued)

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-14, Compensation – Retirement Benefits (Topic 715-20). This Update amends ASC 715 to add, remove and clarify disclosure requirements related to defined benefit pension and other postretirement plans. The Update eliminates the requirement to disclose the amounts in accumulated other comprehensive income expected to be recognized as part of net periodic benefit cost over the next year. The Update also removes the disclosure requirements for the effects of a one-percentage-point change on the assumed health care costs and the effect of this change in rates on service cost, interest cost and the benefit obligation for postretirement health care benefits. This Update is effective for public business entities for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020, and must be applied on a retrospective basis. For all other entities, this Update is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2021. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40). This Update addresses customers’ accounting for implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract and also adds certain disclosure requirements related to implementation costs incurred for internal-use software and cloud computing arrangements. The amendment aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software (and hosting arrangements that include an internal-use software license). This Update is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. The amendments in this Update can be applied either retrospectively or prospectively to all implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In March 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-01, Leases (Topic 842): Codification Improvements, which addressed issues lessors sometimes encounter. Specifically addressed in this Update were issues related to 1) determining the fair value of the underlying asset by the lessor that are not manufacturers or dealers (generally financial institutions and captive finance companies), and 2) lessors that are depository and lending institutions should classify principal and payments received under sales-type and direct financing leases within investing activities in the cash flow statement. The ASU also exempts both lessees and lessors from having to provide the interim disclosures required by ASC 250-10-50-3 in the fiscal year in which a company adopts the new leases standard. The amendments addressing the two lessor accounting issues are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the effective date is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In April 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-04, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and Topic 825, Financial Instruments, which affects a variety of topics in the Codification and applies to all reporting entities within the scope of the affected accounting guidance. Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses amendments are effective for SEC registrants for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other public business entities, the effective date is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and for all other entities, the effective date is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2020. For entities that have adopted the amendments in Update 2017-12, the effective date is as of the beginning of the first annual period beginning after the issuance of this Update. Topic 825, Financial Instruments amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In May 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-05, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, Topic 326, which allows entities to irrevocably elect the fair value option for certain financial assets previously measured at amortized cost upon adoption of the new credit losses standard. To be eligible for the transition election, the existing financial asset must otherwise be both within the scope of the new credit losses standard and eligible for the applying the fair value option in ASC 825-10.3. The election must be applied on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is not available for either available-for-sale or held-to-maturity debt securities. For entities that elect the fair value option, the difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of the financial asset would be recognized through a cumulative-effect adjustment to opening retained earnings as of the date an entity adopted ASU 2016-13. Changes in fair value of that financial asset would subsequently be reported in current earnings. For entities that have not yet adopted ASU 2016-13, the effective dates and transition requirements are the same as those in ASU 2016-13. For entities that have adopted ASU 2016-13, ASU 2019-05 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted once ASU 2016-13 has been adopted. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

(5)Investment Securities (Continued)

 

The following table shows the fair value and gross unrealized losses on investment securities and the length of time that the securities have been in a continuous unrealized loss position at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018 (dollars in thousands):

Total  $11,539   $(67)  $21,743   $(418)  $33,282   $(485)

 

At June 30, 2019, the Company held 5 investment securities in an unrealized loss position. The decline in the fair value of these securities resulted primarily from interest rate fluctuations. The Company does not intend to sell these securities nor is it more likely than not that the Company would be required to sell these securities before their anticipated recovery. Additionally, the Company believes the collection of the investment principal and related interest is probable. Based on the above, the Company considers all of the unrealized losses to be temporary impairment losses.

 

(6)Equity Securities

 

The following table presents the net gains and losses on equity investments recognized in earnings during the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, and the portion of unrealized gains and losses for those periods that relate to equity investments held (dollars in thousands):

 

   Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30, 
   2019   2018   2019   2018 
Net equity securities fair value adjustment gains  $8   $155   $35   $205 
Net gains realized on the sale of equity securities during the period   -    23    -    63

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, gains on sales of equity securities were $63,000 and proceeds from such sales were $331,000.

At June 30, 2019, the Company held 34 mortgage-backed securities in an unrealized loss position. The decline in the fair value of these securities resulted primarily from interest rate fluctuations. The Company does not intend to sell these securities nor is it more likely than not that the Company would be required to sell these securities before their anticipated recovery. Additionally, the Company believes the collection of the investment principal and related interest is probable. Based on the above, the Company considers all of the unrealized loss to be temporary impairment loss.

 

Mortgage-backed securities with a carrying value of $16.3 million and $10.4 million were pledged to secure repurchase agreements and public funds accounts at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

Total loans at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018 were net of deferred loan fees of $243,000 and $226,000 respectively. The Company’s primary business activity is with customers located within its local trade area. Although the Company has a diversified loan portfolio, loans outstanding to individuals and businesses are dependent upon the local economic conditions in its immediate trade area.

 

The segments of the Bank’s loan portfolio are disaggregated to a level that allows management to monitor risk and performance. The three segments are: real estate, commercial business and other. The real estate loan segment is further disaggregated into three classes. One-to-four family residential mortgages (including residential construction loans) includes loans to individuals secured by residential properties having maturities up to 30 years. Commercial real estate consists of loans to commercial borrowers secured by commercial or residential real estate. The repayment of commercial real estate loans is dependent upon either the ongoing cash flow of the borrowing entity or the resale of or lease of the subject property. Home equity loans and lines of credit include loans having maturities up to 20 years. The commercial business loan segment consists of loans to finance the activities of commercial business customers. The other loan segment consists primarily of consumer loans and overdraft lines of credit. The portfolio segments utilized in the calculation of the allowance for loan losses are disaggregated at the same level that management uses to monitor risk in the portfolio. Therefore the portfolio segments and classes of loans are the same.

 

There are various risks associated with lending to each portfolio segment. One-to-four family residential mortgage loans are typically longer-term loans which generally entail greater interest rate risk than consumer and commercial loans. Under certain economic conditions, housing values may decline, which may increase the risk that the collateral values are insufficient. Commercial real estate loans generally present a higher level of risk than loans secured by residences. This greater risk is due to several factors including but not limited to concentration of principal in a limited number of loans and borrowers, the effect of general economic conditions on income producing properties and the increased difficulty in monitoring these types of loans. Furthermore, the repayment of commercial real estate loans is typically dependent upon successful operation of the related real estate project. If the cash flow from the project is reduced by such occurrences as leases not being obtained, renewed or not entirely fulfilled, the borrower’s ability to repay the loan may be impaired. Commercial business loans are primarily secured by business assets, inventories and accounts receivable which present collateral risk. The other loan segment generally has higher interest rates and shorter terms than one-to-four family residential mortgage loans, however, they can have additional credit risk due to the type of collateral securing the loan.

(8)Loans Receivable and Related Allowance for Loan Losses (Continued)

 

Management evaluates individual loans in all of the commercial segments for possible impairment if the relationship is greater than $200,000, and the loan is in nonaccrual status, risk-rated Substandard or Doubtful, greater than 90 days past due or represents a troubled debt restructuring (“TDR”). Loans are considered to be impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect the scheduled payments of principal or interest when due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. The definition of “impaired loans” is not the same as the definition of “nonaccrual loans,” although the two categories overlap. The Company may choose to place a loan on nonaccrual status due to payment delinquency or uncertain collectability, while not classifying the loan as impaired if the loan is not a commercial business or commercial real estate loan. Factors considered by management in evaluating impairment include payment status, collateral value, and the probability of collecting scheduled principal and interest payments when due. Management determines the significance of payment delays and payment shortfalls on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration all of the circumstances surrounding the loan and the borrower, including the length of the delay, the reasons for the delay, the borrower’s prior payment record, and the amount of the shortfall in relation to the principal and interest owed. The Company does not separately evaluate individual consumer and residential mortgage loans for impairment, unless such loan is part of a larger relationship that is impaired, has a classified risk rating, or is a TDR.

 

Once the decision has been made that a loan is impaired, the determination of whether a specific allocation of the allowance is necessary is calculated by comparing the recorded investment in the loan to the fair value of the loan using one of three methods: (a) the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective interest rate; (b) the loan’s observable market price; or (c) the fair value of the collateral less selling costs. The appropriate method is selected on a loan-by-loan basis, with management primarily utilizing the fair value of collateral method. The evaluation of the need and amount of a specific allocation of the allowance and whether a loan can be removed from impairment status is made on a quarterly basis. The Company’s policy for recognizing interest income on impaired loans does not differ from its overall policy for interest recognition.

 

Consistent with accounting and regulatory guidance, the Company recognizes a TDR when the Bank, for economic or legal reasons related to a borrower’s financial difficulties, grants a concession to the borrower that would not normally be considered. Regardless of the form of concession granted, the Company’s objective in offering a TDR is to increase the probability of repayment of the borrower’s loan. To be considered a TDR, the borrower must be experiencing financial difficulties and the Company, for economic or legal reasons related to the borrower’s financial difficulties, grants a concession to the borrower that would not otherwise be considered. The Company did not modify any loans as TDRs during the three or six month periods ended June 30, 2019 or 2018 nor did it have any TDRs within the preceding year where a concession had been made that then defaulted during the three or six month periods ending June 30, 2019 or 2018.

 

There were no impaired loans at June 30, 2019 or December 31, 2018. For both the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, there was $0 average recorded investment in impaired loans compared to $295,000 for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2018. For both the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, there was no interest income recognized on impaired loans.

 

Management uses a nine-point internal risk rating system to monitor the credit quality of the overall loan portfolio. The first five categories are considered not criticized, and are aggregated as “Pass” rated. The criticized rating categories utilized by management generally follow bank regulatory definitions. The Special Mention category includes assets that are currently performing but are potentially weak, resulting in an undue and unwarranted credit risk, but not to the point of justifying a Substandard classification. Loans in the Substandard category have well-defined weaknesses that jeopardize the collection of the debt, and have a distinct possibility that some loss will be sustained if the weaknesses are not corrected. All loans greater than 90 days past due are considered Substandard. Any loan that has a specific allocation of the allowance for loan losses and is in the process of liquidation of the collateral is placed in the Doubtful category. Any portion of a loan that has been charged off is placed in the Loss category.

 

To help ensure that risk ratings are accurate and reflect the present and future capacity of borrowers to repay a loan as agreed, the Company has a structured loan rating process with several layers of internal and external oversight. Generally, consumer and residential mortgage loans are included in the Pass categories unless a specific action, such as delinquency, bankruptcy, repossession, or death occurs to raise awareness of a possible credit event. The Company’s Commercial Loan Officers are responsible for the timely and accurate risk rating of the loans in their portfolio at origination. Commercial relationships are periodically reviewed internally for credit deterioration or improvement in order to confirm that the relationship is appropriately risk rated. The Audit Committee of the Company also engages an external consultant to conduct loan reviews. The scope of the annual external engagement, which is performed through semi-annual loan reviews, includes reviewing approximately the top 50 to 60 loan relationships, all watchlist loans greater than $100,000, all commercial Reg O loans, and a random sampling of new loan originations between $200,000 and $500,000 during the year. Status reports are provided to management for loans classified as Substandard on a quarterly basis, which results in a proactive approach to resolution. Loans in the Special Mention and Substandard categories that are collectively evaluated for impairment are given separate consideration in the determination of the allowance.

Management further monitors the performance and credit quality of the loan portfolio by analyzing the age of the portfolio as determined by the length of time a recorded payment is past due based on the loans’ contractual due dates. Management considers nonperforming loans to be those loans that are past due 90 days or more and are still accruing as well as all nonaccrual loans. At June 30 2019, there were 18 loans on non-accrual status that were less than 90 days past due totaling $610,000. The following table presents the segments of the loan portfolio summarized by the past due status of the loans still accruing and nonaccrual loans as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018 (dollars in thousands):

An allowance for loan losses (“ALL”) is maintained to absorb losses from the loan portfolio. The ALL is based on management’s continuing evaluation of the risk characteristics and credit quality of the loan portfolio, assessment of current economic conditions, diversification and size of the portfolio, adequacy of collateral, past and anticipated loss experience, and the amount of non-performing loans.

 

The Bank’s methodology for determining the ALL is based on the requirements of ASC Section 310-10-35 for loans individually evaluated for impairment (discussed above) and ASC Subtopic 450-20 for loans collectively evaluated for impairment, as well as the Interagency Policy Statements on the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses and other bank regulatory guidance. The total of the two components represents the Bank’s ALL.

 

Loans that are collectively evaluated for impairment are analyzed with general allowances being made as appropriate. For general allowances, historical loss trends are used in the estimation of losses in the current portfolio. These historical loss amounts are modified by other qualitative factors. Management tracks the historical net charge-off activity for the loan segments which may be adjusted for qualitative factors. Pass rated credits are segregated from criticized credits for the application of qualitative factors. Loans in the criticized pools, which possess certain qualities or characteristics that may lead to collection and loss issues, are closely monitored by management and subject to additional qualitative factors.

 

Management has identified a number of additional qualitative factors which it uses to supplement the historical charge-off factor because these factors are likely to cause estimated credit losses associated with the existing loan pools to differ from historical loss experience. The additional factors are evaluated using information obtained from internal, regulatory, and governmental sources such as national and local economic trends and conditions; levels of and trends in delinquency rates and non-accrual loans; trends in volumes and terms of loans; effects of changes in lending policies; experience, depth and ability of management; and concentrations of credit from a loan type, industry and/or geographic standpoint.

 

Management reviews the loan portfolio on a quarterly basis using a defined, consistently applied process in order to make appropriate and timely adjustments to the ALL. When information confirms all or part of specific loans to be uncollectible, these amounts are promptly charged off against the ALL. Management utilizes an internally developed spreadsheet to track and apply the various components of the allowance. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, there was an increase in the provision for the Commercial Real Estate, Commercial Business, Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit, and Other loan classes. The increase for the Commercial Real Estate loan class was primarily due to charge-offs incurred during the six month period as well as growth in the loan balances during the periods included in the allowance calculation for that loan class. The increase for the Commercial Business loan class was the result of both an increase in the loan balances included in the allowance calculation for that loan class as well as an increase in the qualitative factors for the periods. The Home Equity loans and Lines of Credit loan class increased primarily due to the charge-offs incurred during the three month period. The Other loan class increased primarily due to the charge-offs incurred during the periods.

The ALL is based on estimates and actual losses will vary from current estimates. Management believes that the granularity of the homogeneous pools and the related historical loss ratios and other qualitative factors, as well as the consistency in the application of assumptions, result in an ALL that is representative of the risk found in the components of the loan portfolio at any given date.

 

In addition, federal regulatory agencies, as an integral part of their examination process, periodically review the Bank’s allowance for loan losses and may require the Bank to make changes to the allowance based on their judgments about information available to them at the time of their examination, which may not be currently available to Management. Based on Management’s comprehensive analysis of the loan portfolio, they believe the current level of the allowance for loan losses is adequate.

Foreclosed assets acquired in the settlement of loans are carried at fair value less estimated costs to sell and are included in foreclosed real estate on the Consolidated Statement of Financial Condition. As of both June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, foreclosed real estate totaled $486,000 and included two residential properties and one commercial real estate property. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had initiated formal foreclosure procedures on $487,000 of loans, including $249,000 in one-to-four family residential loans, $168,000 in commercial real estate loans, and $70,000 in home equity loans.

 

(10)Leases

 

The Company currently has four financing lease agreements for branch offices. In conjunction with the implementation of ASU 2016-02, the Company recognized right-of-use assets totaling $1.1 million and lease liabilities totaling $1.2 million related to those financing leases. One of the leases includes an option to extend which was recognized as part of the Company’s right-of-use asset and corresponding lease liability for that property because the Company believes that it is more likely than not to exercise the extension option.

 

The right-of-use assets are included with office properties and equipment while lease liabilities are included in long-term borrowings on the June 30, 2019 Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. Amortization of right-of-use assets is included in premises and occupancy costs while interest expense on the lease liabilities is included in the interest expense on long-term borrowings on the Consolidated Statements of Income. The following table presents the financing lease costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 (dollars in thousands):

(12)Employee Stock Ownership Plan

 

The Company established a tax qualified Employee Stock Ownership Plan (“ESOP”) for the benefit of its employees in conjunction with the stock conversion on October 6, 2010. Eligible employees begin to participate in the plan after one year of service and become 20% vested in their accounts after two years of service, 40% after three years of service, 60% after four years of service, 80% after five years of service and 100% after six years of service, or earlier, upon death, disability or attainment of normal retirement age.

 

In connection with the stock conversion, the purchase of the 278,254 shares of the Company stock by the ESOP was funded by a loan from the Company through the Bank. Unreleased ESOP shares collateralize the loan payable, and the cost of the shares is recorded as a contra-equity account in the stockholders’ equity of the Company. Shares are released as debt payments are made by the ESOP to the loan. The ESOP’s sources of repayment of the loan can include dividends, if any, on the unallocated stock held by the ESOP and discretionary contributions from the Company to the ESOP and earnings thereon.

 

Compensation expense is equal to the fair value of the shares committed to be released and unallocated ESOP shares are excluded from outstanding shares for purposes of computing earnings per share. Compensation expense related to the ESOP of $100,000 and $110,000 was recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Compensation expense related to the ESOP of $208,000 and $218,000 was recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Dividends on unallocated shares are not treated as ordinary dividends and are instead used to repay the ESOP loan and recorded as compensation expense.

 

As of June 30, 2019, the ESOP held a total of 254,121 released shares of the Company’s stock. Of the 254,121 shares, there were 159,003 unallocated as of June 30, 2019 with a fair market value of $4.4 million.

 

(13)Pension Information

 

The Company sponsors a pension plan which is a noncontributory defined benefit retirement plan. Effective August 1, 2005, the annual benefit provided to employees under this defined benefit pension plan was frozen by the Bank. Freezing the plan eliminated all future benefit accruals; however, the accrued benefit as of August 1, 2005 remained.

 

The net periodic pension cost for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018 are as follows (dollars in thousands):

 

   Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,

(14)Fair Value of Assets and Liabilities

 

Fair Value Hierarchy

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for an asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.  GAAP established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the use of inputs used in valuation methodologies into the following three levels:

 

Level 1:Inputs to the valuation methodology are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.  A quoted price in an active market provides the most reliable evidence of fair value and shall be used to measure fair value whenever available.  A contractually binding sales price also provides reliable evidence of fair value.

 

Level 2:Inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; or inputs to the valuation methodology that utilize model-based techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market.

 

Level 3:Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement; inputs to the valuation methodology that utilize model-based techniques for which significant assumptions are not observable in the market; or inputs to the valuation methodology that requires significant management judgment or estimation, some of which may be internally developed.

 

Management maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value measurements.  Management reviews and updates the fair value hierarchy classifications of the Company’s assets and liabilities on a quarterly basis.

 

Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

 

Investment, Mortgage-Backed and Equity Securities

 

Fair values of investment and mortgage-backed securities were primarily measured using information from a third-party pricing service.  This service provides pricing information by utilizing evaluated pricing models supported with market data information.  Standard inputs include benchmark yields, reported trades, broker/dealer quotes, issuer spreads, two-sided markets, benchmark securities, bids, offers, and reference data from market research publications.  Level 1 securities are comprised of equity securities.  As quoted prices were available, unadjusted, for identical securities in active markets, these securities were classified as Level 1 measurements.  Level 2 securities were primarily comprised of debt securities issued by government agencies, states and municipalities, corporations, as well as mortgage-backed securities issued by government agencies.  Fair values were estimated primarily by obtaining quoted prices for similar assets in active markets or through the use of pricing models.  In cases where there may be limited or less transparent information provided by the Company’s third-party pricing service, fair value may be estimated by the use of secondary pricing services or through the use of non-binding third-party broker quotes.

 

On a quarterly basis, management reviews the pricing information received from the Company’s third-party pricing service.  This review process includes a comparison to non-binding third-party broker quotes, as well as a review of market-related conditions impacting the information provided by the Company’s third-party pricing service.  Management primarily identifies investment securities which may have traded in illiquid or inactive markets by identifying instances of a significant decrease in the volume or frequency of trades, relative to historical levels, as well as instances of a significant widening of the bid-ask spread in the brokered markets. Securities that are deemed to have been trading in illiquid or inactive markets may require the use of significant unobservable inputs.  As of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, management did not make adjustments to prices provided by the third-party pricing service as a result of illiquid or inactive markets.  On a quarterly basis, management also reviews a sample of securities priced by the Company’s third-party pricing service to review significant assumptions and valuation methodologies used.  Based on this review, management determines whether the current placement of the security in the fair value hierarchy is appropriate or whether transfers may be warranted.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion and analysis provides further detail to the financial condition and results of operations of the Company. This section should be read in conjunction with the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) presented elsewhere in this report.

 

The Company’s critical accounting policies involving the significant judgments and assumptions used in the preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements as of June 30, 2019 have remained unchanged from the disclosures presented in the Company’s audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 contained in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 18, 2019.

 

Standard AVB Financial Corp. is a Maryland corporation that provides a wide array of retail and commercial financial products and services to individuals, families and businesses through 17 banking offices located in the Pennsylvania counties of Allegheny, Westmoreland and Bedford and Allegany County, Maryland through its wholly-owned subsidiary Standard Bank.

 

Comparison of Financial Condition at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018

 

General. The Company’s total assets as of June 30, 2019 increased $18.4 million, or 1.9% to $990.2 million, from $971.8 million at December 31, 2018. The increase in total assets included an increase in investment and mortgage-backed securities of $14.7 million, or 10.0%, and an increase in loans receivable of $4.8 million, or 0.7%, for the six month period.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents increased $855,000, or 5.3%, to $17.1 million at June 30, 2019 from $16.2 million at December 31, 2018. The increase primarily resulted from customer deposits and loan repayments, partially offset by purchases of mortgage-backed securities and repayments of short-term borrowings during the period.

 

Investment Securities. Investment securities available for sale increased $1.8 million, or 2.7%, to $67.9 million at June 30, 2019 from $66.2 million at December 31, 2018. Purchases of investment securities totaled $8.2 million, partially offset by calls and maturities of $1.5 million and sales of $6.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019. Additionally, there was a $1.4 million increase in the unrealized gain on investment securities during the period.

 

Equity Securities. Equity securities available for sale were $2.8 million and $2.7 million at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. There were no purchases or sales of equity securities during the six months ended June 30, 2019.

 

Mortgage-Backed Securities. The Company’s mortgage-backed securities available for sale increased $13.0 million, or 15.9%, to $94.8 million at June 30, 2019 from $81.8 million at December 31, 2018. Purchases of mortgage-backed securities totaled $20.9 million, partially offset by repayments of $8.2 million and sales of $1.3 million during the six month period ended June 30, 2019. Additionally, there was a $1.9 million increase in the unrealized gain on mortgage-backed securities during the period.

 

Loans. At June 30, 2019, net loans were $733.8 million, or 74.1% of total assets, compared to $729.0 million, or 75.0% of total assets at December 31, 2018. The $4.8 million, or 0.7%, increase in loans receivable was the result of loan production exceeding loan payoffs and amortization during the period. Commercial real estate loans and commercial business loans increased $9.4 million or 3.1%, and $5.6 million or 12.1%, respectively. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in home equity loans and lines of credit, 1-4 family residential and construction, and other loans of $5.9 million or 4.8%, $3.7 million or 1.5%, and $559,000 or 49.1%, respectively.

 

Office Properties and Equipment. Office properties and equipment increased $1.4 million, or 17.6%, to $9.2 million at June 30, 2019 from $7.8 million at December 31, 2018. The increase was primarily due to the implementation of ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) as of January 1, 2019. See Footnote 10 in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) for additional information.

 

Deposits. The Company accepts deposits primarily from the areas in which the Bank’s offices are located. The Company has consistently focused on building broader customer relationships and targeting small business customers to increase core deposits. The Company also relies on customer service to attract and retain deposits. The Company offers a variety of deposit accounts with a range of interest rates and terms. Deposit accounts consist of savings accounts, certificates of deposit, money market accounts, commercial and consumer checking accounts and individual retirement accounts. Interest rates, maturity terms, service fees and withdrawal penalties are established on a periodic basis. Deposit rates and terms are based primarily on current operating strategies and market interest rates, liquidity requirements and deposit growth goals.

 

Deposits increased $18.3 million, or 2.6%, to $736.2 million at June 30, 2019 from $717.9 million at December 31, 2018. The increase resulted from increases in money market and interest-bearing checking accounts of $17.5 million or 19.9%, and $9.3 million or 9.3%, respectively. These increases were partially offset by decreases in savings and non-interest-bearing checking accounts of $3.0 million or 2.0%, and $5.0 million or 3.7%, respectively.

 

 27 

 

 

Borrowings. Borrowed funds decreased by $4.5 million, or 4.1%, to $107.1 million at June 30, 2019 from $111.6 million at December 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the repayment of maturing long term advances as well as pay downs on both amortizing long term advances and the overnight borrowing line. These decreases were partially offset by new advances entered into during the period. Federal Home Loan Bank advances decreased $2.5 million, or 2.4%, to $102.5 million from $105.0 million at December 31, 2018. The decrease in advances was due to $17.5 million in principal repayments made on existing advances partially offset by $15.0 million in additional advances entered into during the period. Included in the long-term borrowings on the June 30, 2019 Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition were $1.0 million in financing lease liabilities booked in the accordance with the implementation of ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). There were no short-term borrowings at June 30, 2019 compared to $4.5 million at December 31, 2018. During the six months ended June 30, 2019, proceeds from short-term borrowings were $77.2 million, offset by repayments of $81.7 million.

 

Stockholders’ Equity. Stockholders’ equity increased $3.7 million, or 2.7%, to $141.5 million at June 30, 2019 from $137.9 million at December 31, 2018. The increase was the result of net income of $4.3 million earned during the six months ended June 30, 2019 as well as a $2.6 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive income resulting from fair value adjustments on available for sale securities during the period. These increases were partially offset by $2.1 million dividends paid during the six month period. Additionally, in accordance with the stock repurchase program, 51,500 shares of the Company’s outstanding stock were repurchased during the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2019 and 2018

 

General. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $2.1 million compared to $2.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, a decrease of $396,000, or 15.9%. Earnings per share for the current period was $0.45 for basic and $0.44 for fully diluted compared to $0.54 for basic and $0.53 for fully diluted for the same period in 2018.

 

The Company’s annualized return on average assets (ROA) and return on average equity (ROE) for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were 0.85% and 6.00%, respectively, compared to 1.02% and 7.50%, respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

 

Net Interest Income. Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $7.2 million, a decrease of 3.0%, compared to $7.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of an increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits as well as a decrease in the average balance of loans receivable. These decreases in net interest income were partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of borrowed funds and an increase in the yield on interest-earning assets. The net interest rate spread and net interest margin were 2.78% and 3.12%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 2.96% and 3.23%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Interest and Dividend Income. Total interest and dividend income increased $306,000, or 3.3%, to $9.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $9.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a ten basis point increase in the average yield on interest-earning assets to 4.10% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 3.99% for the same period in the prior year.

 

Interest income on loans increased $175,000, or 2.2%, to $8.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $8.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 13 basis point increase in the average yield on loans receivable to 4.42% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 4.28% for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the average yield was primarily attributable to the repositioning of the loan portfolio to emphasize commercial real estate and business lending as well as adjustable rate loans resetting higher as a result of increases in general market rates compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in interest income resulting from the increase in the average yield was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of loans receivable of $9.9 million, or 1.3%, to $733.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year.

 

Interest income on investment and mortgage-backed securities increased $95,000, or 9.7%, to $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $982,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of an increase in the average balance of investment and mortgage-backed securities of $13.3 million, or 9.0%, to $161.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period. In addition, the average yield earned on investment and mortgage-backed securities increased two basis points to 2.67% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 from 2.65% for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the average yield was due to new security purchases at higher interest rates during the period as well as variable rate securities resetting higher as a result of increases in general market rates.

 

Interest income on FHLB stock and other restricted stock decreased $6,000, or 3.7%, to $155,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $161,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease primarily resulted from a decrease in the average balance of FHLB stock and other restricted stock of $1.4 million, or 15.3%, to $7.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period. The decrease in interest income resulting from the decrease in the average balance was partially offset by an increase in the average yield to 8.25% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 7.32% for the same period in the prior year.

 

Interest income on interest-earning deposits increased $42,000, or 75.0%, to $98,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $56,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 106 basis point increase in the average yield on interest-earning deposits to 2.31% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 1.25% for the same period in the prior year as a result of rising short-term interest rates. The increase in interest income resulting from the increase in the average yield was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of interest-earning deposits of $772,000, or 4.4%, to $17.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period.

 

Interest Expense. Total interest expense increased $529,000, or 29.2%, to $2.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 29 basis point increase in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities to 1.32% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 1.03% for the same prior year period. Additionally, an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing deposits was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of borrowings for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year.

 

Interest expense on deposits increased $644,000, or 56.1%, to $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was the result of an increase in both the average balance and the cost of interest-bearing deposits. The average balance of interest-bearing deposits increased $34.0 million, or 6.0%, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Additionally, the cost of interest-bearing deposits increased 38 basis points to 1.19% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 0.81% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 due to a rising interest rate market.

Interest expense on borrowed funds decreased $117,000, or 17.7%, to $543,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $660,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of decrease in the average balance of borrowing of $32.0 million, or 24.0%, to $101.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Included in the decrease in the average balance of borrowings was a decrease of $11.5 million in the average balance of FHLB short term borrowings for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease in interest expense resulting from the decrease in the average balance was partially offset by a 13 basis point increase in the cost of borrowings to 2.11% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 from 1.98% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 due to the repayment of lower cost borrowings.

 

Provision for Loan Losses. Provision for loan losses increased $6,000, or 3.4%, to $181,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $175,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. In management’s judgment, the allowance for loan losses is at a sufficient level that reflects the losses inherent in the loan portfolio relative to loan mix, economic conditions and historical loss experience. See Footnote 8 in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) for additional information.

 

Noninterest Income. Noninterest income decreased $210,000, or 16.1%, to $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of a decrease in net equity securities fair value adjustment gains of $147,000, or 94.8%, as well as a decrease in service charges of $48,000, or 6.3%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Additionally, there were no gains on the sales of equity securities during the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to $23,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Partially offsetting those decreases was an increase in loan sale gains of $26,000, or 118.2%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period.

 

Noninterest Expenses. Noninterest expenses totaled $5.4 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018. The 2019 period included an increase in compensation and employee benefits of $249,000, or 8.4%, partially offset by decreases in other operating expenses, premises and occupancy expenses and core deposit amortization of $183,000 or 14.9%, $56,000 or 8.6%, and $48,000 or 24.9%, respectively, compared to the same period in the prior year.

 

Income Tax Expense. The Company recorded a provision for income tax of $587,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $638,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The effective tax rate was 21.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 20.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2019 and 2018

 

General. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $4.3 million compared to $4.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, a decrease of $388,000, or 8.4%. Earnings per share for the current period was $0.92 for basic and $0.90 for fully diluted compared to $1.01 for basic and $0.98 for fully diluted for the same period in 2018.

 

The Company’s annualized return on average assets (ROA) and return on average equity (ROE) for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were 0.88% and 6.17%, respectively, compared to 0.96% and 7.03%, respectively, for the same period in 2018.

 

Net Interest Income. Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $14.3 million, a decrease of 3.3%, compared to $14.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of an increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits as well as a decrease in the average balance of loans receivable. These decreases in net interest income were partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of borrowed funds and an increase in the yield of interest-earning assets. The net interest rate spread and net interest margin were 2.83% and 3.17%, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 2.99% and 3.25%, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Interest and Dividend Income. Total interest and dividend income increased by $579,000, or 3.2%, to $18.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $18.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 15 basis point increase in the average yield on interest-earning assets to 4.12% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 3.97% for the same period in the prior year.

 

Interest income on loans increased $274,000, or 1.7%, to $16.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $15.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 16 basis point increase in the average yield on loans receivable to 4.41% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 4.25% for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the average yield was attributable to adjustable rate loans resetting higher as a result of increases in general market rates, new loan originations at higher interest rates and the repositioning of the loan portfolio to emphasize commercial real estate and business lending compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in interest income resulting from the increase in the average yield was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of loans receivable of $14.6 million, or 2.0%, to $732.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year.

Interest income on investment and mortgage-backed securities increased by $226,000, or 11.9%, to $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $1.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of an increase in the average balance of investment and mortgage-backed securities of $11.7 million, or 8.1%, to $156.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period. In addition, the average yield earned on investment and mortgage-backed securities increased nine basis points to 2.71% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 2.62% for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the average yield was due to new security purchases at higher interest rates during the period as well as variable rate securities resetting higher as a result of increases in general market rates.

 

Interest income on FHLB stock and other restricted stock increased $7,000, or 2.2%, to $329,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $322,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of an increase in the average yield to 8.61% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 7.08% for the same period in the prior year. The FHLB increased the dividend yield on both activity and membership stock as of the fourth quarter of 2018. The additional dividend income to true up the 2018 quarter was received in 2019. The increase in interest income resulting from the increase in the average yield was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of FHLB stock and other restricted stock of $1.5 million, or 16.1%, to $7.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period.

 

Interest income on interest-earning deposits increased $72,000, or 67.9%, to $178,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $106,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 121 basis point increase in the average yield on interest-earning deposits to 2.47% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 1.26% for the same period in the prior year as a result of rising short-term interest rates. The increase in interest income resulting from the increase in the average yield was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of interest-earning deposits of $2.4 million, or 14.0%, to $14.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period.

 

Interest Expense. Total interest expense increased $1.1 million, or 30.8%, to $4.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from $3.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily the result of a 31 basis point increase in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities to 1.29% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 0.98% for the same period in the prior year. Additionally, an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing deposits was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of borrowings for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year.

 

Interest expense on deposits increased $1.3 million, or 59.5%, to $3.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was the result of an increase in both the average balance and the cost of interest-bearing deposits. The average balance of interest-bearing deposits increased $30.9 million, or 5.5%, for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Additionally, the cost of interest-bearing deposits increased 39 basis points to 1.15% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 0.76% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 due to a rising interest rate market.

 

Interest expense on borrowed funds decreased $208,000, or 15.8%, to $1.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from $1.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of a decrease in the average balance of borrowings of $36.6 million, or 26.2%, to $103.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Included in the decrease in the average balance of borrowings was a $22.5 million decrease in the average balance of FHLB short term borrowings for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease in interest expense resulting from the decrease in the average balance was partially offset by a 26 basis point increase in the cost of borrowings to 2.15% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 from 1.89% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 due to the repayment of lower cost borrowings.

 

Provision for Loan Losses. Provision for loan losses increased $115,000, or 65.7%, to $290,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $175,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. In management’s judgment, the allowance for loan losses is at a sufficient level that reflects the losses inherent in the loan portfolio relative to loan mix, economic conditions and historical loss experience. See Footnote 8 in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) for additional information.

 

Noninterest Income. Noninterest income decreased $154,000, or 6.5%, to $2.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of a decrease in net equity securities fair value adjustment gains of $170,000, or 82.9%, as well as a decrease in service charges of $69,000, or 4.7%, for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Additionally, there were no gains on the sales of equity securities during the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $63,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Partially offsetting those decreases was an increase in loan sale gains of $55,000, or 203.7%, for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior period.

Noninterest Expenses. Noninterest expenses decreased $278,000, or 2.5%, to $10.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $11.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of a decrease in other operating expenses, core deposit amortization and premises and occupancy expenses of $202,000 or 9.0%, $112,000 or 24.9%, and $68,000 or 5.1%, respectively, during the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Increases in compensation and benefits for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were offset by the severance payment included in the comparable 2018 period.

 

Income Tax Expense. The Company recorded a provision for income tax of $1.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The effective tax rate was 20.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 20.7% for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability to meet current and future financial obligations. The Company’s primary sources of funds consist of deposit inflows, loan repayments and sales, borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, repurchase agreements and maturities, principal repayments and the sale of available-for-sale securities. While maturities and scheduled amortization of loans and securities are predictable sources of funds, deposit flows and mortgage prepayments are greatly influenced by general interest rates, economic conditions and competition. The Company’s Asset/Liability Management Committee, under the direction of the Chief Financial Officer, is responsible for establishing and monitoring liquidity targets and strategies in order to ensure that sufficient liquidity exists for meeting the borrowing needs and deposit withdrawals of the Bank’s customers as well as unanticipated contingencies. At June 30, 2019, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents amounted to $17.1 million. Management believes there is enough sources of liquidity to satisfy short- and long-term liquidity needs as of June 30, 2019.

 

Certificates of deposit due within one year of June 30, 2019 totaled $93.8 million, or 12.7% of total deposits. If these deposits do not remain with the Bank, it may be required to seek other sources of funds, including loan and securities sales, repurchase agreements and Federal Home Loan Bank advances. Management believes, however, based on historical experience and current market interest rates, the Bank will retain upon maturity a large portion of the certificates of deposit with maturities of one year or less. The Company’s maximum borrowing capacity at the FHLB at June 30, 2019 was $427.6 million.

Stockholders’ equity was $141.5 million at June 30, 2019, an increase of $3.7 million or 2.7% from $137.9 million at December 31, 2018. The increase was a result of net income of $4.3 million earned during the six months ended June 30, 2019 as well as a $2.6 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive gains resulting from fair value adjustments on available for sale securities during the period. These increases were partially offset by $2.1 million dividends paid during the six month period. Additionally, in accordance with the stock repurchase program, 51,500 shares of the Company’s outstanding stock were repurchased during the six months ended June 30, 2019.

 

Current regulatory requirements specify that the Bank and similar institutions must maintain regulatory capital sufficient to meet tier 1 leverage, common equity tier 1 risk-based, tier 1 risk-based and total risk-based capital ratios of at least 4.00%, 4.50%, 6.00% and 8.00%, respectively. At June 30, 2019, the Bank was in compliance with all regulatory capital requirements ratios of 11.5%, 16.7%, 16.7% and 17.3%, respectively, and was considered “well capitalized” under regulatory guidelines.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements and Aggregate Contractual Obligations

 

Commitments. As a financial services provider, the Company routinely is a party to various financial instruments with off-balance-sheet risks, such as commitments to extend credit and unused lines of credit. While these contractual obligations represent future cash requirements, a significant portion of commitments to extend credit may expire without being drawn upon. Such commitments are subject to the same credit policies and approval process accorded to loans the Bank makes. At June 30, 2019, the Company had $141.2 million in loan commitments outstanding, $72.6 million of which were for commercial loan originations and $7.7 million which were for one- to four-family and construction loan originations. In addition to those commitments to originate loans, loan commitments outstanding included $35.0 million in unused home equity lines of credit to borrowers and $26.0 million in other commitments.

 

Contractual Obligations. In the ordinary course of operations, the Company enters into certain contractual obligations. Such obligations include data processing services, operating leases for premises and equipment, agreements with respect to borrowed funds and deposit liabilities.
