The Company Reports Net Income of $1.56 Million in the March 2021 Quarter

Loans Held for Investment Decrease 7% from June 30, 2020 to $840.3 Million

Total Deposits Increase 5% from June 30, 2020 to $933.8 Million

Non-Interest Expense Declines 8% to $6.91 Million in the March 2021 Quarter in Comparison to the March 2020 Quarter

RIVERSIDE, Calif., April 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Provident Financial Holdings, Inc. (“Company”), NASDAQ GS: PROV, the holding company for Provident Savings Bank, F.S.B. (“Bank”), today announced third quarter earnings results for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, the Company reported net income of $1.56 million, or $0.21 per diluted share (on 7.58 million average diluted shares outstanding), up from net income of $1.14 million, or $0.15 per diluted share (on 7.59 million average diluted shares outstanding), in the comparable period a year ago. Compared to the same quarter last year, the increase in earnings was primarily attributable to a recovery from the allowance for loan losses and lower non-interest expenses (mainly, lower salaries and employee benefits expenses related to fewer employees and reduced incentive compensation), partly offset by lower net interest income.

“I am pleased with our improving operating results this quarter. We experienced stronger loan origination volumes than recent prior quarters, deposit growth is sound, operating expenses are well controlled, and credit quality remains very good,” said Craig G. Blunden, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “Additionally, I believe general economic conditions are beginning to improve from last year which is a welcome development. We are well-positioned to benefit from an increase in economic activity,” said Mr. Blunden.

Return on average assets for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was 0.53 percent, up from 0.41 percent for the same period of fiscal 2020; and return on average stockholders’ equity for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was 4.99 percent, up from 3.70 percent for the comparable period of fiscal 2020.

On a sequential quarter basis, the $1.56 million net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 reflects a 33 percent increase from $1.18 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was primarily attributable to a $225,000 increase in non-interest income and a $239,000 improvement in the provision for loan losses, partly offset by a decrease of $181,000 in net interest income. Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $0.21 per share, up 31 percent from the $0.16 per share during the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Return on average assets was 0.53 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, up from 0.40 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2021; and return on average stockholders’ equity for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was 4.99 percent, up from 3.77 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2021 net income decreased $1.89 million, or 31 percent, to $4.22 million from $6.11 million in the comparable period ended March 31, 2020; and diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 decreased 30 percent to $0.56 per share (on 7.52 million average diluted shares outstanding) from $0.80 per share (on 7.61 million average diluted shares outstanding) for the comparable nine-month period last year. Compared to the same period last year, the decrease in earnings was primarily attributable to a $4.85 million decrease in net-interest income; partly offset by lower non-interest expenses as a result of a $1.97 million decrease in salaries and employee benefits expenses and a $612,000 decrease in the provision for loan losses.

Net interest income decreased $1.43 million, or 16 percent, to $7.46 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $8.89 million for the same quarter of fiscal 2020, attributable to a decrease in the net interest margin, partly offset by a higher average interest-earning assets balance. The net interest margin during the third quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 70 basis points to 2.60 percent from 3.30 percent in the same quarter last year, primarily due to a decrease in the average yield of interest-earning assets reflecting primarily downward pressure on adjustable rate instruments as a result of decreases in market interest rates over the last year, partly offset by a much smaller decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities. The average yield on interest-earning assets decreased by 93 basis points to 2.94 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from 3.87 percent in the same quarter last year while the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased by 26 basis points to 0.38 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from 0.64 percent in the same quarter last year. The average balance of interest-earning assets increased by $67.2 million, or six percent, to $1.15 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $1.08 billion in the same quarter last year due primarily to purchases of investment securities, partly offset by a decrease in loans receivable.

The average balance of loans receivable decreased by $86.1 million, or nine percent, to $843.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $929.5 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2020. The average yield on loans receivable decreased by 41 basis points to 3.73 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from an average yield of 4.14 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2020. Net deferred loan cost amortization in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 increased to $717,000 from $451,000 in the same quarter of fiscal 2020. Total loans originated and purchased for investment in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $61.0 million, up 112 percent from $28.8 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2020. Loan principal payments received in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $75.7 million, up 36 percent from $55.7 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2020 reflecting increased refinance activity in the currently low interest rate environment.

The average balance of investment securities increased by $143.7 million, or 183 percent, to $222.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $78.6 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2020. The average yield on investment securities decreased 162 basis points to 0.81 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from 2.43 percent for the same quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease in the average yield was primarily attributable to investment security purchases with a lower average yield than the legacy portfolio of investment securities, reflecting the current low interest rate environment. During the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the Bank purchased investment securities totaling $50.4 million with an average yield of approximately 0.84%; and for the first nine months of fiscal 2021, the Bank purchased investment securities totaling $154.2 million with an average yield of approximately 0.82%.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the Federal Home Loan Bank – San Francisco (“FHLB”) distributed a $100,000 cash dividend to the Bank on its FHLB stock, down 31 percent from $144,000 in the same quarter last year.

The average balance of the Company’s interest-earning deposits, primarily cash with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, increased $9.8 million, or 16 percent, to $71.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $61.9 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2020 primarily as a result of deposit growth and loan repayments outpacing new loan originations and purchases of loans and investment securities. The average yield earned on interest-earning deposits in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was 0.10 percent, down 110 basis points from 1.20 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2020 as a result of decreases in the targeted Federal Funds Rate.

Average deposits increased $79.8 million, or 10 percent, to $916.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $836.9 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to increases in transaction accounts resulting primarily from government stimulus programs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, partly offset by a managed run-off of higher cost time deposits. The average cost of deposits improved, decreasing by 19 basis points to 0.17 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from 0.36 percent in the same quarter last year.

Transaction account balances or “core deposits” increased $64.4 million, or nine percent, to $787.4 million at March 31, 2021 from $723.0 million at June 30, 2020, while time deposits decreased $23.6 million, or 14 percent, to $146.4 million at March 31, 2021 from $170.0 million at June 30, 2020.

The average balance of borrowings, which consisted of FHLB advances, decreased $15.4 million, or 12 percent, to $115.7 million while the average cost of borrowings decreased 36 basis points to 2.08 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to an average balance of $131.1 million with an average cost of 2.44 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease in the average balance of borrowings was primarily due to prepayments and maturities of borrowings.

During the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company recorded a recovery from the allowance for loan losses of $200,000, in contrast to an $874,000 provision for loan losses recorded during the same period of fiscal 2020 and a $39,000 provision for loan losses recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 (sequential quarter). The provision for loan losses in the previous quarters was primarily due to an increase in qualitative components in our allowance for loan losses methodology in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its forecasted adverse economic impact. The recovery from the allowance for loan losses for the current quarter primarily reflects an improved economic outlook as of March 31, 2021, reducing the expected impact of the pandemic to the credit quality of the loan portfolio and declining loan balances during the current quarter; while the provision for loan losses recorded in the preceding quarters primarily reflected the deterioration in forecasted economic metrics reflecting the economic outlook that existed at each quarter   end as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, partly offset by the decrease in loan balances.

Non-performing assets, comprised solely of non-performing loans with underlying collateral located in California, increased $4.9 million to $9.8 million, or 0.82 percent of total assets, at March 31, 2021, compared to $4.9 million, or 0.42 percent of total assets, at June 30, 2020 and declined from $10.3 million, or 0.88 percent of total assets, at December 31, 2020 (sequential quarter). The non-performing loans at March 31, 2021 are comprised of 29 single-family loans and one multi-family loan. At both March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, there was no real estate owned.

Net loan recoveries for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 were $8,000 or 0.00 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable, as compared to net loan recoveries of $15,000 or 0.01 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and net loan recoveries of $9,000 or 0.00 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 (sequential quarter).

Classified assets, comprised solely of loans, were $12.2 million at March 31, 2021, including $2.5 million of loans in the special mention category and $9.7 million of loans in the substandard category; while classified assets at June 30, 2020 were $14.1 million, including $8.6 million of loans in the special mention category and $5.5 million of loans in the substandard category.

The Bank has received requests from borrowers for some type of payment relief due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Loans that were current on their payments prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and modified by deferred payments, are not considered to be troubled debt restructurings pursuant to applicable accounting guidance consistent with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act of 2020 or CARES Act and related bank regulatory guidance. The primary method of relief is to allow the borrower to defer loan payments for up to an initial six-month period, although we have also waived late fees and suspended foreclosure proceedings. Loans in which their payments are deferred beyond the initial six months are no longer in forbearance and are subsequently classified as troubled debt restructuring. As of March 31, 2021, loans in forbearance included five single-family with outstanding balances of approximately $1.8 million or 0.22 percent of gross loans held for investment, one commercial real estate loan with an outstanding balance of $945,000 or 0.11 percent of gross loans held for investment and one multi-family loan with an outstanding balance of $308,000 or 0.04 percent of gross loans held for investment. As of March 31, 2021, the Bank had no pending requests for payment relief. Interest income is recognized during the forbearance period unless the loans are classified as non-performing. After the payment deferral period, scheduled loan payments will once again become due and payable. The forbearance amount will be due and payable in full as a balloon payment at the end of the loan term or sooner if the loan becomes due and payable in full at an earlier date. The Company believes the steps it is taking are necessary to effectively manage the loan portfolio and assist its customers through the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the duration, impact and government response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, one COVID-19 related forbearance loan was restructured while two restructured loans were upgraded to pass category. During the nine months ended March 31, 2021, 17 loans previously in a COVID-19 related payment forbearance and one pass loan were restructured and classified as restructured loans, while three restructured loans were upgraded to the pass category, of which one loan was subsequently paid off. The outstanding balance of restructured loans at March 31, 2021 was $8.3 million (23 loans) up from $2.6 million (eight loans) at June 30, 2020. As of March 31, 2021, a total of $8.1 million or 97 percent of the restructured loans were classified as substandard non-accrual and all of the restructured loans have a current payment status consistent with their restructuring terms.

The allowance for loan losses was $8.3 million or 0.98 percent of gross loans held for investment at March 31, 2021, similar to the $8.3 million or 0.91 percent of gross loans held for investment at June 30, 2020. Management believes that, based on currently available information, the allowance for loan losses is sufficient to absorb potential losses inherent in loans held for investment at March 31, 2021 under the incurred loss methodology.

Non-interest income increased by $98,000, or nine percent, to $1.20 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $1.10 million in the same period of fiscal 2020, primarily due to an increase in loan servicing and other fees resulting from a recovery from servicing asset reserves attributable to lower loan prepayment estimates, partly offset by a decrease in deposit account fees reflecting certain fees that were waived related to accounts impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and reduced transactions reflecting changes in spending habits due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On a sequential quarter basis, non-interest income increased $225,000, or 23 percent, primarily as a result of an increase in loan servicing and other fees resulting from higher loan prepayment fees.

Non-interest expenses decreased $596,000, or eight percent, to $6.91 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 from $7.51 million in the same quarter last year due primarily to lower salaries and employee benefits expense resulting from fewer employees and lower incentive compensation. On a sequential quarter basis, non-interest expenses remained virtually unchanged.

The Company’s efficiency ratio in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was 80 percent, up from 75 percent in the same quarter last year but unchanged from the second quarter of fiscal 2021 (sequential quarter).

The Company’s provision for income tax was $386,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, down 17 percent from $467,000 in the same quarter last year primarily due to tax benefits attributable to the exercise of stock options, partly offset by higher net income before taxes. The effective tax rate in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was 19.8%, down from 29.0% in the same quarter last year. The Company believes that the tax provision recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 reflects its current federal and state income tax obligations.

The Company repurchased 54,707 shares of its common stock with an average cost of $16.66 per share during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 pursuant to its stock repurchase plan. As of March 31, 2021, a total of 317,108 shares or 85 percent of the shares authorized for repurchase under the April 2020 stock repurchase plan remain available to purchase until the plan expires on April 30, 2021.

The Bank currently operates 13 retail/business banking offices in Riverside County and San Bernardino County (Inland Empire).
