HV Bancorp, Inc. Reports Results For The Quarter Ended June 30, 2022

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., Aug. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HV Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company” or “HVB”) (Nasdaq Capital Market: HVBC), the holding company of Huntingdon Valley Bank (the “Bank”), reported operating results for the Company for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, was $640,000 or ($0.33 per basic share and $0.31 per diluted share) versus net income of $1.3 million or ($0.65 per basic share and $0.63 per diluted share). Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021, was $1.2 million ($0.63 per basic share and $0.60 per diluted share) versus net income of $2.6 million ($1.30 per basic share and $1.27 per diluted share). For the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022, net interest income increased 24.4% and 18.1% to $4.4 million and $8.0 million over the same periods of the prior year.

Travis J. Thompson, Esq., Chairman & CEO, commented, “We are pleased to announce our mid-year results for 2022 which highlighted our continued transformation to a commercial business bank.  Commercial loan originations for the quarter totaled $78 million and $105 million year to date, as total commercial loans outstanding increased $101 million year over year (net of loans originated through the Paycheck Protection Program).  This strategy continues to drive our yield and margin performance, leading to increased earnings quality and stability and ultimately, contributes to enhanced shareholder value.

Mr. Thompson continued, “The residential mortgage market remains volatile due to significantly higher interest rates, increasing home prices and continued limited inventory. These factors, coupled with a reduction in consumer confidence and fears of a recession, have had an impact on home sale activity. However, HVB is well positioned to navigate these challenges and is committed to the markets we serve. I am proud that our team was able to originate almost $200 million in mortgages in the first half of 2022 despite the numerous challenges present in the mortgage market.”

Highlights for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022 include:

  • For the six month period, net interest income was $8.0 million compared to $6.8 million in the same period in 2021, an increase of 17.6%.
  • Net interest margin continues to improve, increasing from 2.56% for the three months ended June 30, 2021, to 3.34% for the three months ended June 30, 2022. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net interest margin improved from 2.26% to 3.04%.
  • Non-interest income decreased by $1.7 million and $2.7 million for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022 from the same periods in 2021 as a result of reduced mortgage origination volume due to continued interest rate volatility combined with limited housing inventory. Offsetting the decrease for the six months ended was a $1.0 million gain on sale of mortgage servicing right, net resulting from the sale of approximately $3.2 million of the mortgage servicing rights.
  • At June 30, 2022, non-performing assets totaled $2.6 million, or 0.46% of total assets, compared to $3.8 million or 0.67% at December 31, 2021. The Company remains acutely focused on ensuring sound underwriting practices resulting in strong asset quality despite external economic pressures.

Balance Sheet: June 30, 2022, compared to December 31, 2021

Total assets increased $10.5 million to $570.6 million at June 30, 2022, from $560.1 million at December 31, 2021. The increase was primarily the result of increases of $63.1 million in loans receivable, net, $51.4 million in investment securities, and $3.9 million in bank-owned life insurance offset by decreases of $83.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, $21.6 million in loans held-for-sale and $3.2 million in mortgage servicing rights. During the quarter ended June 30, 2022, the Company transferred approximately $30.2 million at amortized cost of available-for-sale securities to the held-to maturity category.

Total liabilities increased $11.9 million to $529.4 million at June 30, 2022, from $517.5 million at December 31, 2021. The increase in total liabilities was primarily from a $17.5 million increase in deposits offset by decreases of $3.1 million decrease in advances from the Federal Reserve's Paycheck Protection Program liquidity facility ("PPPLF") and $2.2 million in other liabilities. Deposits increased $17.5 million to $481.5 million at June 30, 2022 from $464.0 million at December 31, 2021. Our core deposits (consisting of demand deposits, money market, passbook and statement and checking accounts) increased $10.8 million to $442.6 million at June 30, 2022 from $431.8 million at December 31, 2021. Certificates of deposit increased $6.7 million to $38.9 million at June 30, 2022 from $32.2 million at December 31, 2021.

Total shareholders’ equity decreased $1.4 million to $41.2 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $42.6 million at December 31, 2021. This decrease is primarily as a result of comprehensive losses of $2.6 million due to the fair value adjustments, net of deferred tax, on the investment securities available-for-sale portfolio which reflects recent increases in market interest rates and $212,000 in treasury stock repurchases primarily as part of the stock repurchase plan. Offsetting these decreases was net income of $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, share based compensation expense of $119,000, ESOP shares committed to be released of $46,000 and a stock option exercise of $21,000.

The decrease in non-interest income of $1.7 million to $2.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, from $3.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, was primarily due to a $1.5 million decrease in the gain on sale of loans, an increase of $1.0 million in loss of derivative instruments, net offset by $593,000 increase in change in fair value of loans held for sale. The decrease in non-interest income of $2.7 million to $5.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, from $8.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, was primarily due to a $4.0 million decrease in the gain on sale of loans, net and a $867,000 increase in loss on derivative instruments, net offset by a $1.0 million gain on sale of mortgage servicing rights, net and a $582,000 increase in change in fair value of loans held-for-sale.

The decrease for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to the three months of June 30, 2021, was primarily a result of decreases of $111,000 in other expenses and $63,000 in federal deposit insurance premiums. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, the increase was primarily a result of $173,000 increase in salaries and employee benefits and $105,000 increase in occupancy expenses offset by a decrease of $158,000 in federal deposit insurance premiums.
