ANN ARBOR, MI -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- University Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQB: UNIB) announced that it had audited net income attributable to University Bancorp, Inc. common stock shareholders in 2013 of $1,826,008, $0.391 per share on average shares outstanding of 4,673,980 for the year. For 2013, University Bancorp had pre-tax income of $3,678,893. For 2013, income allocated to non-controlling interests of $1,053,940, preferred stock dividends of $93,085 and income tax of $1,246,330 were incurred.
For 2013, the Company's return on equity attributable to common stock shareholders was 24.6% on initial equity of $7,436,190.
Net income (loss) attributable to University Bancorp, Inc. common stock shareholders in the fourth quarter of 2013 was ($177,287), or ($0.038) per share on average shares outstanding of 4,692,828. The final quarter of 2013 was negatively impacted by employee profit sharing in December 2013 of $400,000 with respect to the 2013 year. Profit sharing with respect to the 2012 year was accrued in March 2013 in the amount of $587,000 and the December 2013 charge represents a change in timing to recognize the employee profit sharing payments earlier based on estimates and at the time when actually approved by the board of directors. Also of note, we began amortizing the customer list related to our acquisition of the Ann Arbor Insurance Centre (AAIC) subsidiary, which resulted in a $71,143 expense in 4Q2013 and we will incur a similar charge at the rate of $17,786 per quarter for 2014 and each year until the end of 2019, when this acquisition cost will be fully amortized.
In addition to the extra $587,000 of profit sharing and new $71,143 insurance agency acquisition related amortization expense, unusual expenses in 2013 also included $80,000 expense related to the sale of $437,000 in substandard loans through DebtX, and the final payment of $447,385 under the tax sharing agreement with the minority investors in our University Islamic Financial subsidiary, fully completing these contractual payments. These were offset by MSR valuation gains of $1,151,405. Also of note, income from the fair value of hedged and rate locked loans held for sale dropped year over year by $1,228,212 as the mortgage origination pipeline ended 2013 at $17.7 million, significantly lower than the level at the end of 2012, which was $43.0 million.
Audited net income attributable to University Bancorp, Inc. common stock shareholders in 2012 was $1,915,859, $0.411 per share on average shares outstanding of 4,661,348 for the year. For 2012, University Bancorp had pre-tax income of $4,678,663. For 2012, income allocated to non-controlling interests was $859,534, preferred stock dividends were $93,938 and income tax of $1,955,885 was incurred. The effective tax rate differed from the statutory federal income tax rate as a result of permanent tax differences and changes in tax estimates as a result of two acquisitions. For 2012, the Company's return on equity attributable to common stock shareholders was 32.5% on initial equity of $5,887,158.
Unusual expenses in 2012 included $3.46 million in reserves and write-offs related to ORE sales, Allowance for Loan Losses (ALLL) reserves and other reserves only partially offset by $414,000 in unusual gains related to MSR valuation gains and hedged pipeline gains. We moved aggressively in 2012 to write-down, discount and sell substandard assets and add to our ALLL.
The ALLL had a balance of $968,244 at 12/31/2013 versus portfolio loans of $49,464,710, or 1.96%. Substandard assets dropped 30% during 2013 to $1,892,138, 14.67% of Tier 1 Capital at 12/31/2013, including other real estate owned of $431,553.
Tier 1 Capital rose to 12.75% at 12/31/2013 on average assets of $101.1 million, was 12.69% at 9/30/2013 on average assets of $108.1 million, and is projected to be 13.79% at 12/31/2014, if we achieve our 2014 budget goal unless we opt to pay dividends or conduct a stock buyback during 2014, which is a possibility.
President Stephen Lange Ranzini noted, "The budget for 2014 calls for the company to have net income attributable to University Bancorp, Inc. common stock shareholders of $2.68 million after-tax, $0.57 per share, and the bank to earn $5.17 million pre-tax and $3.4 million after-tax before minority interest."
Shareholders' equity attributable to University Bancorp, Inc. common stock shareholders rose to $9,439,485 or $2.011 per share, based on shares outstanding at December 31, 2013 of 4,692,828. Excluding goodwill & other intangibles related to the acquisition of Midwest Loan Services and AAIC, net tangible shareholders' equity attributable to University Bancorp, Inc. common stock shareholders rose to $8,656,318 or $1.845 per share at 12/31/2013. (Please note that we provide this statistic only because we are asked for it and do not see it as particularly useful or meaningful.)
Michigan and the Ann Arbor MSA continue to see increased employment and increased home prices and as a result, the performance of our portfolio loans and our overall asset quality continues to be superior with low loan delinquencies. As of 12/31/2013 in our loan portfolio held for investment we had no consumer or commercial loans delinquent over 30 days, and we had just two residential mortgage loans delinquent 30 days and one residential mortgage loan for $56,133 delinquent over 90 days.
In 2013, we originated $565.1 million in residential mortgage loans for our own account, versus $588.7 million in 2012. Of the 2013 retail originations, 80.2% of University Lending Group's and 66.8% of University Islamic Financial's residential mortgage originations financed purchase transactions. In addition we originated $89.8 million in portfolio residential mortgage loans for our credit union customers in 2013.
In 1Q2014 we completed the migration of all our credit union's retail originations to the unified back office platform across which our other residential originations flow. This is expected to enable an increase in the origination business won from our current 340 credit union and 7 community bank subservicing customers, since our unified origination platform is significantly more competitive than the platform it is replacing.
Liquidity remains excellent. We manage $70 million of deposits in an off-balance sheet sweep arrangement through a series of deposit accounts at the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis (FHLBI), which are available to us to meet any withdraws in just a few minutes, and on which we earn interest at Fed Funds rate.
President Stephen Lange Ranzini noted, "Although we didn't meet the 2013 budget due to an unbudgeted drop in mortgage originations in the fourth quarter, 2013 continued the long track record of success for the Company. Based on the rankings from our FDIC Call Report data, IDC Financial Publishing, Inc. (IDC) has rated University Bank with a perfect 300 out of 300 rating for three quarters in a row, and we are one of only two banks headquartered in Michigan the past two quarters with a perfect IDC rating. IDC is generally considered to be the best and most prestigious organization that rates the financial quality and strength of banks in the U.S."
The Company will host a conference call at Noon at Thursday April 10, 2014 to discuss the 2013 results with its shareholders. Please contact Stephen Lange Ranzini via
