Waterstone Financial, Inc. Announces Results Of Operations For The Quarter And The Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

WAUWATOSA, Wis., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Waterstone Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSBF), holding company for WaterStone Bank, reported net income for the second quarter of 2014 of $3.8 million, compared to $1.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 and $4.9 million for the second quarter of 2013. Net income per diluted share was $0.11 for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $0.14 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2013.

"Our community banking operations generated solid loan growth and increasing net income. However, our overall results continue to be impacted by the decline in originations and margins the mortgage industry is experiencing," said Doug Gordon, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "We continue to execute an organic growth strategy to further leverage the capital raised in the first quarter of 2014."

During the quarter, the community banking segment increased loans receivable before allowance for loan losses from $1.10 billion at March 31, 2014 to $1.12 billion at June 30, 2014. The community banking segment net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 totaled $2.8 million compared to $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2013. Community banking operations were positively impacted by a $950,000 decline in provision for loan losses from $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2013 to $250,000 in the second quarter of 2014 due to the improving credit quality metrics set forth below. Net income was also positively impacted by a $361,000 increase in net interest income to $10.1 million during the second quarter of 2014 compared to $9.7 million during the second quarter of 2013. The positive impact of the reduction in provision for loan losses and increase in net interest income was partially offset by an increase in real estate owned expense from $12,000 in the second quarter of 2013 to $705,000 in the second quarter of 2014. The mortgage banking segment reported net income of $1.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to $2.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. The decrease in mortgage banking income was the result of a decrease in the volume of loans originated and sold as well as a decrease in the margins earned on loan sales in 2014 compared to 2013.

Credit quality continued its steady pace of improvement in the second quarter of 2014. Total nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets remained consistent at 3.78% at both June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 and declined from 5.10% at June 30, 2013. Nonaccrual loans declined by 10% to $46.0 million at June 30, 2014 from $51.0 million at December 31, 2013 while real estate owned declined marginally to $22.1 million from $22.7 million during the same period. This equates to a decline in total nonperforming assets of 8% to $68.1 million at June 30, 2014 from $73.6 million at December 31, 2013. Nonaccrual loans declined by 14% to  $46.0 million at June 30, 2014 from $53.3 million at June 30, 2013 while real estate owned declined by 26% to $22.1 million at June 30, 2014 from $30.0 million at June 30, 2013. This equates to a decline in total nonperforming assets of 18% to $68.1 million at June 30, 2014 from $83.2 million at June 30, 2013. Total delinquent loans declined by 28% to $43.9 million at June 30, 2014 from $60.6 million at June 30, 2013.
