    PORT ANGELES, Wash., April 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Northwest Bancorp (NASDAQ:FNWB) (“Company”), the holding company for First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Port Angeles (“Bank”), announced its operating results for the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2017. The Company reported net income of $2.2 million, or $0.20 earnings per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, an increase of $976,000, or 82.2%, compared to net income of $1.2 million, or $0.11 earnings per basic and diluted share, for the prior quarter ended December 31, 2016. Current quarter net income increased $1.3 million, or 141.2%, compared to net income of $897,000 for the same quarter in 2016. The increase in net income compared to the previous quarter and the same quarter one year prior was mainly due to an increase in noninterest income and net interest income, partially offset by an increase in noninterest expense.

    “We are pleased with the significant improvement in performance over the past three quarters. Earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, excluding the income received from a death benefit on bank-owned life insurance, were the highest the Company has recorded," stated Larry Hueth, President and CEO. "Net interest income of $8.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, increased 5.7% from the prior quarter and 15.7% over the same quarter for the prior year. Asset quality remains strong with the percentage of non-performing loans to total loans at 0.3%. We continue to reserve for loan losses to cover loan growth and anticipate continuing to reserve at a level commensurate with future loan growth. Consumer and business loans and deposit growth in our historic market area and the expansion into new markets in Whatcom and Kitsap counties continue to exceed our expectations," continued Hueth.

    "We anticipate continued execution of our plan to realign the mix of interest-earning assets into higher yielding loans in a prudent manner. We are also pleased with the results of our stock repurchase plan as a capital management tool. Through March 31, 2017, we have repurchased 889,500 shares, or 68.4%, of the 1,300,756 shares authorized by the Board of Directors in the plan announced on September 27, 2016. We will continue to monitor our share price in determining the best opportunities to purchase the remaining shares under the repurchase plan. Our Board and management team remain committed to returning capital to shareholders while supporting the growth of our business in order to create shareholder value," concluded Hueth.

    Third Quarter highlights (at or for the quarter ended March 31, 2017)

    • Net income increased $976,000, or 82.2%, compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2016, primarily due to an increase in noninterest income and net interest income, partially offset by an increase in noninterest expense;
    • We received income from a death benefit on bank-owned life insurance ("BOLI") of $768,000 related to the death benefit of a former Bank executive;
    • Basic and diluted earnings per share increased to $0.20 compared to $0.11 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016;
    • Net loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $15.8 million, or 2.3%, during the quarter, primarily due to increases in all loan categories other than one- to four-family residential loans, which declined $5.3 million during the quarter;
    • Deposits increased $13.6 million, or 1.7%, during the quarter due to promotional and ongoing business development activities in new and existing markets; and
    • We repurchased 76,100 shares of common stock at an average price of $15.69 per share during the quarter.

    Balance Sheet Review

    During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, total assets increased $37.5 million, or 3.6%, to $1.1 billion. Year over year, total assets increased $85.9 million, or 8.6%, from $995.4 million at March 31, 2016. Net loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $15.8 million, or 2.3%, during the quarter to $706.2 million at March 31, 2017, primarily due to increases in commercial and multifamily real estate loans and other consumer loans. Net loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $131.9 million, or 23.0%, as compared to March 31, 2016, primarily due to originations of commercial real estate and construction and land loans coupled with purchases of one- to four-family residential loans. Investment securities increased $19.5 million, or 7.1%, during the quarter to $295.5 million at March 31, 2017, due to the purchase of additional securities. Investment securities decreased $61.9 million, or 17.3%, as compared to $357.4 million at March 31, 2016, primarily as a result of sales, prepayment activity and normal amortization. Bank-owned life insurance increased $10.0 million to $28.3 million at March 31, 2017 from $18.2 million at March 31, 2016, primarily the result of the purchase of an additional $10.0 million of bank-owned life insurance.

    The increase of $15.8 million in net loans, excluding loans held for sale, during the three months ended March 31, 2017, was primarily attributable to an increase in commercial real estate loans of $8.0 million, multi-family loans of $6.0 million, other consumer loans of $4.2 million, and construction and land loans of $2.5 million. Other consumer loans increased primarily as a result of auto loans originated as part of our indirect lending program. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in the balance of one- to four-family residential loans of $5.3 million. There were $40.4 million in undisbursed construction loan commitments at March 31, 2017, of which $13.4 million was committed to one- to four-family residential construction; $12.9 million was committed to multi-family construction; $8.7 million was committed to commercial hospitality construction; $4.6 million was committed to commercial speculative construction; and $772,000 was committed to commercial real estate construction. Compared to March 31, 2016, total loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $133.2 million, or 22.9%, mainly attributable to an increase in commercial real estate loans of $57.1 million, construction and land loans of $31.8 million, one- to four family residential loans of $24.3 million, multi-family loans of $9.4 million, other consumer loans of $9.3 million, and commercial business loans of $1.2 million.

    During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, the total investment securities portfolio increased $19.5 million to $295.5 million, as a result of purchases during the quarter partially offset by prepayment activity and normal amortization. Mortgage-backed securities represented the largest portion of the investment securities portfolio and totaled $214.9 million at March 31, 2017, an increase during the quarter of $26.7 million, or 14.2%, from $188.2 million at December 31, 2016. Other investment securities, including mostly municipal bonds and other asset-backed securities, were $80.6 million at March 31, 2017, a decrease of $7.2 million, or 8.2%, from $87.8 million at December 31, 2016, primarily the result of prepayment and amortization activity. Total investment securities decreased $61.9 million, or 17.3%, at March 31, 2017 compared to $357.4 million at March 31, 2016, which included a $30.6 million decrease in mortgage-backed securities and a $31.3 million decrease in other investment securities. We continue to manage the investment portfolio as a source of liquidity to fund our growth and supplement interest income.

    During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, total liabilities increased $35.8 million, or 4.1%, to $902.8 million at March 31, 2017 from $866.9 million at December 31, 2016. The increase was primarily the result of an increase in borrowings of $20.7 million, or 31.4%, to $86.6 million at March 31, 2017, from $65.9 million at December 31, 2016, as we utilized short-term FHLB advances. Also, deposit account balances increased $13.6 million, or 1.7%, to $807.7 million at March 31, 2017, from $794.1 million at December 31, 2016, as we continue to grow our deposit customer base in new and historic markets. The increase in deposits was the result of an increase of $7.2 million, or 3.0%, in transaction accounts, $5.3 million, or 3.0%, in certificates of deposit, and $2.7 million, or 2.8%, in savings accounts, partially offset by a decrease of $1.5 million, or 0.5%, in money market accounts.

    Total liabilities increased $98.7 million, or 12.3%, over the last year, which was mainly attributable to an increase in deposits of $98.0 million, or 13.8%, compared to $709.7 million at March 31, 2016. Deposit account increases were primarily the result of our continuing efforts to expand commercial and consumer deposit relationships in our new Kitsap and Whatcom County, Washington locations, as well as within our historic Clallam and Jefferson County, Washington locations.

    Total shareholders' equity increased $1.6 million, or 0.9%, to $178.5 million at March 31, 2017, from $176.9 million at December 31, 2016, primarily due to net income of $2.2 million.

    Operating Results

    Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased $632,000, or 8.7%, to $7.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, from $7.3 million for the prior quarter ended December 31, 2016, due to an increase in net interest income of $437,000 and a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $195,000. Net interest income after the provision for loan losses increased $884,000, or 12.6%, compared to $7.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, due to an increase in net interest income of $1.1 million, partially offset by an increase in the provision for loan losses of $215,000. The decline in the provision for loan losses during the quarter as compared to the prior quarter ended December 31, 2016, was primarily due to the provision required for the growth of loans receivable being partially offset by a decline in nonperforming loans coupled with a net recovery of $53,000 on previously charged-off loans during the period. The increase in the provision for loan losses for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to the same quarter the prior year, was primarily due to the growth of loans receivable. Total interest income increased $488,000, or 5.5%, during the quarter to $9.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and increased $1.2 million, or 15.3%, as compared to $8.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, primarily due to increases in the average balance of, and interest earned on, loans receivable.

    Total interest expense increased $51,000, or 4.1%, to $1.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, due to our increased utilization of short-term FHLB advances and, to a slightly lesser extent, the increase in the average balances, and interest paid on, customer deposits. Total interest expense increased $148,000, or 12.8%, as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2016, mainly due to an increase in the average balances of, and interest paid on, customer deposits.

    The net interest margin increased six basis points to 3.18% for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to 3.12% for the prior quarter ended December 31, 2016, and increased 12 basis points from 3.06% for the same period in 2016. Net interest margin increased for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to the prior quarter and the same period in 2016, primarily due to an increase in the average balance of total loans receivable earning higher yields compared to cash and investment alternatives.

    Noninterest income increased $872,000, or 65.6%, to $2.2 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to the prior quarter ended December 31, 2016, primarily due to income from a death benefit received from BOLI of $768,000 related to the death benefit of a former Bank executive. Noninterest income increased $1.2 million, or 109.4%, during the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to $1.1 million for the same quarter in 2016, as a result of the income received from the BOLI death benefit coupled with an increase in the cash surrender value of BOLI of $141,000, as well as an increase in the net gain on sale of loans of $264,000.

    Noninterest expense increased $618,000, or 9.0%, to $7.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to $6.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, primarily due to an increase in compensation and benefits expense of $728,000. Compensation and benefits increased primarily due to incentive payouts and accruals during the quarter, including the re-establishment of accruals related to the executive bonus plan that was reversed during the prior quarter, coupled with annual merit increases. Noninterest expense increased $636,000, or 9.3%, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to $6.9 million for the same quarter in 2016. This increase was primarily a result of an increase of $885,000 in compensation and benefits as we added staff to manage our operations, provided annual merit increases, and rewarded our staff and management for performance through incentive programs and sales commissions.

    Capital Ratios and Credit Quality

    The Company and the Bank continue to maintain capital levels significantly in excess of the applicable regulatory requirements and the Bank was categorized as “well-capitalized” at March 31, 2017. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had Tier 1 Leverage-Based Capital, Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital, and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios of 16.7%, 25.0%, 25.0%, and 26.1%, respectively. The Company's Tier 1 Leverage-Based Capital, Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital, and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios were 16.8%, 25.4%, 25.4%, and 26.6%, respectively, at December 31, 2016.

    Credit quality remains strong, with nonperforming loans decreasing $149,000, or 6.0%, during the quarter ended March 31, 2017, to $2.3 million at March 31, 2017 from $2.5 million at December 31, 2016, mainly attributable to a decrease in nonperforming one- to four-family residential loans of $417,000. Improvements in asset quality during the quarter are reflected by a decline in the percentage of nonperforming loans to total loans to 0.3% at March 31, 2017, from 0.4% at December 31, 2016, and an increase in the percentage of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans to 354.5% at March 31, 2017 from 322.7% at December 31, 2016. Classified loans increased $237,000 to $3.7 million; however, we expect fluctuations over time in the balance of classified loans and do not believe this increase is an indication of declining credit quality in our loan portfolio. Our allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.2% at both March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.
