HF Financial Corp. Quarterly Earnings Per Share Increase 12.5 Percent; Announces Quarterly Dividend

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., April 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- HF Financial Corp. (Nasdaq: HFFC), reported earnings for the fiscal third quarter ended March 31, 2009 of $1.8 million, or $0.45 in diluted earnings per share, versus $1.6 million, or $0.40 in diluted earnings per common share in the comparable period in fiscal 2008, a 12.5 percent increase in diluted earnings per share.

Revenue inclusive of net interest income and non-interest income totaled $12.2 million for the quarter, an increase of $1.7 million or 15.7 percent over the comparable period last year. Net interest income totaled $9.2 million for the quarter, an increase of $1.5 million or 18.9 percent over the same period last year. Net interest margin expressed on a fully taxable equivalent basis for the three month period was 3.55 percent, compared to 3.32 percent in the comparable period last year. Net interest margin benefitted primarily from lower costs on interest-bearing liabilities and also expanded due to earning asset growth.

"Earnings continue to demonstrate the focus of our strategy of being a traditional, relationship-based financial services provider within the communities we serve," stated Curtis L. Hage, Chairman, President and CEO of HFFC. "Increased mortgage refinance activity has been spurred by lower long-term rates and our staff has done a tremendous job responding to this opportunity for our customers. We have been successful in attracting and retaining high quality staff across business lines and this has been a cornerstone to our strong revenue growth."

For the quarter, non-interest income was $3.0 million, up $197,000 or 7.0 percent relative to the comparable period in fiscal year 2008. Gain on sale of loans and gain on the sale of securities increased $286,000 and $387,000, respectively, while trust income and other non-interest income decreased $71,000 and $86,000, respectively, when compared to the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. Net impairment losses recognized in earnings were $361,000 for the third quarter of fiscal year 2009, which partially offset some of the increase in other non-interest income.

As previously announced, HF Financial Corp. intends to pay back the $25 million in Capital Purchase Program (CPP) funds currently held by the United States Treasury as preferred stock. The transaction is subject to approval by the Treasury and the company's primary regulator the Office of Thrift Supervision. Loan activity including new volume and renewals of existing credit totaled $190.8 million from the closing of the CPP transaction November 21, 2008, through March 31, 2009.

The ratio of non-performing loans and leases to total loans and leases at the end of the fiscal 2009 third quarter was 0.54 percent, compared to 0.50 percent at the end of the third quarter in the prior year period. The increase in non-performing loans and leases was primarily attributable to an increase of $404,000 in accruing loans and leases delinquent more than 90 days, to $2.3 million at March 31, 2009. Net loan and lease charge offs in the amount of $407,000 were recorded for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, compared to $405,000 for the comparable period last year. The company incurred a provision for losses on loans and leases of $414,000 for the third quarter of fiscal year 2009 compared to $551,000 in the third fiscal quarter of 2008.

"We are strong in experience and structure related to our loan underwriting, analysis, review and collections," said Darrel L. Posegate, president of Home Federal Bank. "We have allocated reserves to mitigate the impact of a deepening recession that may impact our markets."

Non-interest expense grew $854,000 or 11.3 percent, over last year's third quarter. The increase was due in part to an increase in net healthcare costs of $378,000, while federal deposit insurance premiums increased $249,000 due to changes in the assessment structure and deposit guarantee programs.

Third Quarter Year-to-Date Results

For the nine months ended March 31, 2009, the Company reported earnings of $5.7 million, or $1.40 in diluted earnings per common share, versus $4.2 million, or $1.05 in diluted earnings per common share, for the comparable period in fiscal year 2008, a 33.3 percent increase in diluted earnings per common share.

Net interest income for the first nine months of the fiscal year totaled $26.8 million, up $5.5 million, or 25.7 percent over the corresponding period last year. Net interest margin on a fully taxable equivalent basis for the nine month period ended March 31, 2009, was 3.37 percent compared to 3.08 percent for the comparable period last year. The net interest margin benefitted primarily from lower costs on interest-bearing liabilities, and growth in earning assets.

Non-interest income for the nine months ended March 31, 2009, totaled $9.0 million, an increase of $394,000, or 4.6 percent, versus the comparable period in fiscal 2008. Non-interest income growth was driven by an increase in fees on deposits of $315,000, gain on sale of loans of $124,000 and gain on the sale of securities of $512,000. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in trust income of $194,000 and net impairment losses recognized in earnings of $361,000.

Non-interest expense during the first nine months of fiscal 2009 increased $3.6 million, to $26.0 million, up 16.0 percent over the comparable period last year. Increases include higher healthcare costs of $1.1 million and compensation and performance-based incentives of $943,000. Federal deposit insurance premiums increased $465,000 and other non-interest expenses increased $883,000.

Average earning assets increased 14.1 percent, yielding 5.76 percent for the nine months ended March 31, 2009, compared to the same period last year, which yielded 6.74 percent. Average interest-bearing liabilities increased 12.8 percent, with a cost of funds of 2.75 percent for the nine months ended March 31, 2009 compared to the similar period last year with a cost of funds rate of 4.16 percent.

Balance Sheet Performance

Loans and leases receivable at March 31, 2009 totaled $819.5 million, an increase of $35.8 million from the balance at June 30, 2008. As previously announced, the company made a decision in the first quarter of fiscal year 2008 to cease origination of indirect automobile loans. During the current fiscal year, consumer indirect loans decreased $18.3 million, to $26.0 million; while agriculture loans increased $52.9 million, to $213.1 million at March 31, 2009. Other lines of business increased a total of $1.2 million in loan and lease receivables since June 30, 2008.

Total non-performing assets increased $1.5 million or 39.2 percent for the nine month period ending March 31, 2009. The increase in non-performing assets was primarily attributable to an increase of $1.5 million in accruing loans and leases delinquent more than 90 days to $2.3 million at March 31, 2009. These loans are well-secured and in the process of collection. Foreclosed assets increased by $55,000 to $698,000 and were offset by a decrease in non-accruing loans and leases of $65,000. The ratio of allowance for loan and lease losses to nonperforming loans and leases decreased to 180.1 percent at March 31, 2009, compared to 191.1 percent at June 30, 2008.

The company has pooled trust preferred securities in its investment portfolio that are currently impaired under applicable accounting rules. The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued additional guidance as to how to account for impaired investments as well as determining the fair value of these securities in an inactive market. The company has attempted to determine fair value of these securities were they sold at the end of the quarter in an orderly transaction that was not a forced liquidation or a distressed sale.

The company's $11.9 million of pooled trust preferred securities have been downgraded below investment grade by Moody's. The company has performed an analysis to determine if any of the securities have a credit loss by estimating if any of the cash flows are not expected to be received as contracted. Based on this analysis, three pools of $6.3 million of the $11.9 million have other-than-temporary impairment with a credit loss totaling $361,000, which was recorded as a net impairment loss recognized in earnings for the third quarter.

Deposits at March 31, 2009 totaled $804.2 million, an increase of $20.0 million, or 2.5 percent, from the balance at June 30, 2008. During the nine month period, public fund account balances increased $7.4 million due in part to typical seasonal fluctuations. In-market and out-of-market certificates of deposit increased a total of $67.3 million from $353.3 million to $420.6 million for the nine month period. Non-interest bearing checking, interest bearing checking, money market accounts and savings accounts decreased $9.4 million, $1.9 million, $28.6 million, and $7.4 million, respectively, which partially offset the other increases in deposits.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

The company announced it will pay a quarterly cash dividend of 11.25 cents per common share for the third quarter of the 2009 fiscal year. The dividend will be paid on May 15, 2009 to stockholders of record on May 8, 2009.

The company also announced a quarterly cash dividend on its Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock (Series A) issued to the U.S. Treasury Department under its voluntary Capital Purchase Program. The dividend amount is equal to $12.50 per preferred share. This amount is based on a rate per annum of 5 percent, and is payable for the three month period of February 15, 2009 through May 15, 2009 using 30-day months.
