New Balance TOWNSHIP OF WASHINGTON, N.J., Jan. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oritani Financial Corp. (the "Company" or "Oritani") ( ORIT ), the holding company for Oritani Bank (the "Bank"), reported net income of $10.0 million, or $0.23 per basic and diluted common share, for the three months ended December 31, 2013, and $20.4 million, or $0.48 per basic (and $0.47 diluted) common share, for the six months ended December 31, 2013. This compares to net income of $8.7 million, or $0.21 per basic (and $0.20 diluted) common share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, and $18.0 million, or $0.43 per basic (and $0.42 diluted) common share, for the six months ended December 31, 2012.

"There are several very positive aspects to this report, including our EPS, ROA, deposit growth and continued positive trends in credit quality. But the result that I am proudest to report is our loan growth for the quarter. Our annualized growth rate for the quarter was 14.5%," said Kevin J. Lynch, the Company's Chairman, President and CEO. "Our loan growth had slowed in the prior quarter, but the results this quarter show that we are able to grow the portfolio despite the increasing rate environment and a continued high level of prepayments." Mr. Lynch continued, "We realize that loan growth is critical to capital deployment for Oritani, and this is an objective we are intent on achieving."

Net Income
new New Balance
Net income increased $1.2 million, or 14.1%, to $10.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, from $8.7 million for the corresponding 2012 quarter. Net income increased $2.4 million, or 13.4%, to $20.4 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013, from $18.0 million for the corresponding 2012 period. The primary cause of the increased income in the 2013 periods was a decrease in the provision for loan losses and increased other income.

The Company continues to focus on organic growth of the multifamily and commercial real estate loan portfolios. The average balance of the loan portfolio increased $194.6 million over the periods. On a linked quarter basis (December 31, 2013 versus September 30, 2013), the average balance of the loan portfolio grew $36.2 million and the period end balance of loans grew $83.1 million. The annualized growth rate based on the ending balances was 14.5%. The growth was primarily achieved through originations. Loan originations totaled $184.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The yield on the loan portfolio decreased 30 basis points for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 versus the comparable 2012 period. The decreased yield was primarily due to the impact of current market rates on new originations, refinancings, prepayments and repricings. The market rates on new originations are higher than they were last year but are still below the average yield of the loan portfolio. Prepayment penalties are recognized as interest on loans. These penalties, which significantly impacted both periods, were higher in the 2013 period. Prepayment penalties totaled $1.9 million in the 2013 period versus $1.2 million in the 2012 period. Prepayment penalties boosted the annualized loan yield by 33 basis points in the 2013 period and 22 basis points in the 2012 period. Prepayment penalty provisions are incorporated into all of the Company's multifamily and commercial real estate loan documents. The penalties are intended to protect the Company from the prepayment of loans and provide the Company with compensation if the loan is prepaid. Management had expected that the recent increases in market rates of interest on loans would decrease prepayment activity; however, this has not yet occurred.

The components of interest income for the six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, changed as follows:

The explanations for changes described above for the three month period are also applicable to the six month period. Loan originations for the six months ended December 31, 2013 totaled $286.2 million. Loan originations were lower in the first quarter of the fiscal year but increased during the quarter ended December 31, 2013. Prepayment penalties totaled $3.7 million in the 2013 period versus $2.6 million in the 2012 period, and boosted annualized loan yield by 32 basis points in the 2013 period versus 25 basis points in the 2012 period.

The Company continued its strategic objective of increasing core deposits. While increases in core account balances have been partially offset by decreases in time deposits, overall deposit growth was achieved. Management has implemented strategies with a goal of increasing deposits. These strategies have generated initial success, and management expects these trends to continue. However, such strategies may negatively impact future costs. On a linked quarter basis (December 31, 2013 versus September 30, 2013), the average balance of deposits grew $29.4 million and the period end balance of deposits grew $38.3 million. The annualized growth rate based on the ending balances was 10.8%. On a linked quarter basis, the average cost of interest bearing deposits was stable. As detailed in table above, the average balance of borrowings decreased slightly ($5.2 million) for the three months ended December 31, 2013 versus the comparable 2012 period, while the cost increased 19 basis points. The primary reason for the increase in costs over the periods is because there are more long term borrowings in the 2013 period.

The explanations for changes described above for the three month period regarding deposits are also applicable to the six month period. The average balance of borrowings increased $32.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013 versus the comparable 2012 period. This increase is primarily due to a lower level of borrowings during the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The borrowing level during this period was predicated on liquidity needs.

Net Interest Income Before Provision for Loan Losses. Net interest income increased by $241,000, or 1.0%, to $24.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, from $24.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Net interest income increased by $644,000, or 1.3%, to $48.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013, from $48.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The Company's net interest income, spread and margin over the period are detailed in the chart below.

The Company's spread and margin have been significantly impacted by prepayment penalties. Results for the December, 2013 quarter detail spread and margin erosion despite the level of prepayment penalties. A clearer trend is evident in the table above that excludes prepayment income. The Company's spread and margin are under pressure in the current interest rate environment due to several factors, including: rates on new loan originations and investment purchases; modifications of loans within the existing loan portfolio; prepayments of higher yielding loans and investments; limited ability to further reduce deposit and borrowing costs; promotional interest costs to attract new deposit customers and ongoing increases in borrowing costs for the long term borrowings necessary to reduce interest rate risk. Market rates of interest have risen over the past eight months and the yield curve has steepened. A steep yield curve generally provides a benefit to the Company. Some of the increases have been captured in new loan origination rates, offsetting a portion of the pressures described above. The Company's largest interest rate risk exposure is to a flat or inverted yield curve.

The Company's net interest income and net interest rate spread were both negatively impacted in all periods due to the reversal of accrued interest income on loans delinquent more than 90 days. The total of such income reversed was $55,000 and $358,000 for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013, respectively, and $486,000 and $1.3 million for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012, respectively.

Provision for Loan Losses. The Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $200,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $500,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $3.0 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. A rollforward of the allowance for loan losses for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 is presented below:

The improving delinquency and nonaccrual trends, changes in loan risk ratings, loan growth, charge-offs and economic and business conditions continue to have a meaningful impact on the current level of provision for loan losses. The provision for loan losses was lower in the 2013 period partially due to these factors. In addition, improvements in general economic and business conditions have also impacted the level of provisioning by decreasing the necessary level of general allowances. To the extent that continued improvements occur in all of these factors, the level of provision expense can be expected to remain low, even if loan growth is significant.

Total delinquent loans continued a general trend that is evident since December 31, 2012 (and prior). Other than for the September 30, 2013 period, total delinquent loans have decreased steadily. As further described below, the metrics in the nonaccrual total continue to show improvement. Nonaccrual loans totaled $19.9 million at December 31, 2013. However, $7.8 million of this total consisted of loans that were fully current at December 31, 2013 and were included in the nonaccrual total as they had not yet demonstrated sufficient recent satisfactory performance. There are two other loans, totaling $1.5 million, included in the nonaccrual total whose delinquency status was 30 days or less.

At December 31, 2013, there are eight nonaccrual loans with balances greater than $1.0 million. These loans are discussed below:
A $3.2 million construction loan for a luxury home in Morris County, New Jersey. The loan is classified as impaired. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, no reserve was required as of December 31, 2013, primarily due to a low estimated loan to value. Over the quarter ended December 31, 2013, a modification and extension agreement, with terms satisfactory to Oritani, was reached. This agreement has been classified as a troubled debt restructuring ("TDR"). If the loan demonstrates six months of satisfactory performance it will be returned to accrual status (although there can be no assurances that this will occur). The loan has paid as agreed since the agreement.
A $1.6 million residential loan on a single family residence in Bergen County, New Jersey. A foreclosure action was initiated when loan payments became delinquent. The loan is classified as impaired. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, a $246,000 impairment reserve remains against this loan as of December 31, 2013. Oritani is pursuing legal remedies.
A $1.1 million loan on a mixed use property in Bergen County, New Jersey. The loan is classified as impaired. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, a $265,000 impairment reserve remains against this loan as of December 31, 2013. A forbearance agreement had previously been executed and the borrower has generally complied with the payment demands of the Company but not to the extent where the Company believes long term issues with the loan have been resolved. The loan is classified as nonaccrual as of December 31, 2013 and was 30 days delinquent at that time. The Company will continue to monitor the performance of this loan to determine if it is appropriate to remove it from the nonaccrual classification (there can be no assurances that this will occur and it is presently at least six month away).
A $2.5 million loan on a multifamily property in New York City. The loan is classified as impaired. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, no reserve was required as of December 31, 2013. The borrower is in bankruptcy and the bankruptcy court has approved a plan for the sale of the property, and such plan is in process. There is a pending contract for sale of this property for $3.7 million. Regular payments have resumed on this loan including a small amount toward the delinquent balance.
A $2.4 million loan on a warehouse/light industrial building in Bergen County, NJ. The loan is classified as impaired. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, no reserve was required as of December 31, 2013, primarily due to a low estimated loan to value. During the quarter ended September 30, 2013, a modification and extension agreement, with terms satisfactory to Oritani, was reached. This agreement includes a new guarantor and other credit enhancements and carries a market rate of interest. It is not considered a TDR. If the loan demonstrates six months of satisfactory performance it will be returned to accrual status (although there can be no assurances that this will occur). The loan has paid as agreed since the agreement.
A $1.7 million loan on a retail building in Morris County, NJ. The loan is classified as impaired. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, a $163,000 impairment reserve remains against this loan as of December 31, 2013. Over the quarter ended September 30, 2013, an agreement was reached regarding the total late fees and legal fee reimbursement to be paid to the Bank in conjunction with the delinquency. The Company currently expects that the loan will be brought fully current during the quarter ending March 31, 2014 (although there can be no assurances that this will occur). If this occurs, the performance of the loan will then be monitored to see if it can appropriately be returned to accrual status.
A $1.7 million loan on an office building in Somerset County, NJ. The loan is classified as impaired. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, a $292,000 impairment reserve remains against this loan as of December 31, 2013. This loan and the loan described directly above have the same borrower, and the same agreement was reached for this loan.
A $1.2 million loan on a lot and auto showroom in Bergen County, NJ. There had been no payment issues with the loan until it matured and extension terms could not be agreed upon. Over the quarter ended December 31, 2013, an extension agreement, with terms satisfactory to Oritani, was reached with the borrower. The extension agreement is considered a TDR and is therefore classified as impaired as of December 31, 2013. In accordance with the results of the impairment analysis for this loan, a $407,000 impairment reserve was established against this loan as of December 31, 2013.

There are eight other multifamily/commercial real estate loans, totaling $3.4 million, classified as nonaccrual at December 31, 2013. The largest of these loans has a balance of $698,000 (and was fully current at December 31, 2013).

There are seven other residential loans, totaling $847,000, classified as nonaccrual at December 31, 2013. The largest of these loans has a balance of $334,000.

Other Income . Other income increased $677,000 to $1.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, from $887,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase is primarily due to a $285,000 increase on income from investments in joint ventures. Results for both periods are reduced (versus budget) due to decreased income at one commercial property. A negative adjustment related to expected insurance reimbursements was recorded on this property during the quarter ended December 31, 2012, which further depressed results for that period. As discussed in prior public releases, issues related to flooding at one commercial property have decreased occupancy and income. The key vacancy pertains to the grocery anchor tenant. Negotiations with a potential replacement grocery anchor extended far beyond original expectations but were consummated over the quarter. Income at this property is now expected to return to historical levels by July 1, 2014. Net gain on sale of assets totaled $207,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, versus $36,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The gain in the 2013 period was primarily due to the sale of an REO property.

Other income increased $1.0 million to $3.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013 from $2.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The six month period was also impacted by the issues described above regarding income from investments in joint ventures and net gain on sale of REO.

Other Expenses . Other expenses increased $570,000 to $10.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, from $9.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily due to compensation, payroll taxes and fringe benefits, which increased $504,000 to $7.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, from $7.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily due to expenses associated with the Company's defined benefit plan. This plan is frozen but actuarial changes to the present value of future payment obligations along with changes to the estimated earnings on assets led to a required contribution. In 2012, the valuation of the defined benefit plan allowed a reversal of an accrual that had existed at that time. There were also increases in direct compensation due to additional staffing and salary adjustments.

Operating expenses increased $907,000 to $19.6 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013, from $18.7 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily due to compensation, payroll taxes and fringe benefits, which increased $671,000 to $14.6 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013, from $13.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The six month period was affected by the items described above for the three month period, though to a slightly larger extent.

Income Tax Expense . Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $5.6 million on pre-tax income of $15.6 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 36.0%. Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $5.2 million on pre-tax income of $14.0 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 37.3%. Income tax expense for the six months ended December 31, 2013, was $11.5 million, due to pre-tax income of $31.9 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 36.1%. For the six months ended December 31, 2012, income tax expense was $10.7 million, due to pre-tax income of $28.6 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 37.3%. The decreased rate in 2013 was primarily due to the furtherance of various tax planning strategies.

Comparison of Financial Condition at December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013

Total Assets. Total assets increased $110.4 million to $2.94 billion at December 31, 2013, from $2.83 billion at June 30, 2013.

Loan originations totaled $184.4 million and $286.2 million for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013, respectively. However, the growth rate of the loan portfolio continues to be negatively impacted by an elevated level of prepayments.

Real Estate Owned . Real estate owned ("REO") increased $2.3 million to $4.0 million at December 31, 2013, from $1.7 million at June 30, 2013. During the 2014 fiscal year, the Company has taken title to three properties and disposed of two properties.

Borrowings. Borrowings increased $71.0 million to $904.6 million at December 31, 2013, from $833.7 million at June 30, 2013.

Stockholders' Equity. Stockholders' equity increased $1.1 million to $519.8 million at December 31, 2013, from $518.7 million at June 30, 2013. The increase was primarily due to net income and the proceeds from the exercise of stock options, partially offset by dividends, including a $0.25 special dividend paid in December, 2013. Based on our December 31, 2013 closing price of $16.05 per share, the Company stock was trading at 141.1% of book value.
