ESSA Bancorp, Inc. Announces Operating Results for the Second Fiscal Quarter of 2013

STROUDSBURG, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/13 -- ESSA Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: ESSA), the holding company for ESSA Bank & Trust, today announced its operating results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2013. The Company reported net income of $2.0 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared with net income of $659,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the Company's second fiscal quarter 2012. The Company's return on average assets (ROAA), and return on average equity (ROAE), respectively, were 0.59% and 4.71%, compared with 0.24% and 1.62%, in the corresponding period of fiscal 2012.

For the six months ended March 31, 2013, ESSA reported net income of $4.9 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the corresponding 2012 period. The Company's ROAA, and ROAE, respectively, were 0.71% and 5.59% for the 2013 period, compared with 0.28% and 1.90%, in the corresponding period of 2012.

ESSA Bancorp completed its acquisition of First Star Bancorp on July 31, 2012. The results for the periods ended March 31, 2013, reflect the effects of the acquisition in fiscal 2013. Total assets were $1.4 billion and total deposits were $1.0 billion at March 31, 2013.

Gary S. Olson, President and CEO, commented: "ESSA's mid-2012 acquisition of First Star is clearly proving accretive to our earnings, and our expanded presence in the Lehigh Valley is providing ESSA with access to a vibrant market and a larger base of new customers and prospective customers. Additionally, we are realizing an approximate 30% cost savings from First Star's operating expenses, right in line with our previously stated goals pertaining to the acquisition.

"We are encouraged by the increasing loan demand in our Lehigh Valley market. Fiscal year-to-date, ESSA closed $72.2 million of residential mortgages and $22.6 million of commercial loans. A slightly reduced net loan balance at March 31, 2013 compared with September 30, 2012 primarily reflected loan pay-offs, which are expected during this protracted low interest rate environment and the sale of $19.2 million of mortgage loans.

"We are cautiously optimistic that continued economic expansion, combined with our new, larger market will provide significant lending growth opportunities for the Company. ESSA has the capital strength to support both organic and other growth as prudent opportunities arise.

"ESSA's board of directors continues to believe repurchasing the Company's stock is a good use of our capital, and our repurchase program remains ongoing. For the six months ended March 31, 2013, the Company repurchased 640,209 shares at an average cost of $11.07 per share."

Income Statement

Net interest income increased $3.1 million, or 45.98%, to $9.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, from $6.8 million for the comparable period in 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the Company's interest rate spread to 2.97% for the three months ended March 31, 2013, from 2.36% for the comparable period in 2012 combined with an increase in the Company's average net earning assets of $3.2 million. A decrease in the yield on the Company's total average interest earning assets to 3.97% for the 2013 period from 4.22% for the 2012 period was more than offset by a decrease in the cost of the Company's total average interest bearing liabilities to 1.00% from 1.86% for the same comparative periods. Net interest margin was 3.08% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to net interest margin of 2.63% for the comparable period in 2012.

Olson stated: "While low interest rates continue to put pressure on our net interest margin, ESSA has demonstrated success in reducing its cost of funds while retaining core deposit customers."

Interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 includes approximately $443,000 of net accretion of fair market value adjustments for credit and yield applied to First Star loans at the acquisition closing date of July 31, 2012. In addition, net income for the quarter includes approximately $210,000 of the recapture of fair value adjustments to loans acquired as part of the First Star acquisition that were either fully or partially repaid during the quarter.

Interest income for the six months ended March 31, 2013 includes approximately $866,000 of net accretion of fair market value adjustments for credit and yield applied to First Star loans at the acquisition closing date of July 31, 2012. In addition, net income for the six months included approximately $1.2 million of the recapture of fair value adjustments to loans acquired as part of the First Star acquisition that were either fully or partially repaid during the six months ended March 31, 2013.

Interest expense decreased primarily as a result of a decrease in interest rates and a decrease in higher rate borrowings for the three and six months ended March 31, 2013 compared with the comparable periods in 2012.

The provision for loan losses increased $200,000 to $850,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, from $650,000 for the comparable period in 2012. The provision for loan losses increased $700,000 to $1.9 million for the six months ended March 31, 2013, from $1.2 million for the comparable period in 2012. Net loan charge-offs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $747,000 compared to $277,000 for the comparable period in 2012. Net loan charge-offs for the six months ended March 31, 2013 were $1.5 million compared to $1.2 million for the comparable period in 2012.

Noninterest income increased $835,000, or 51.45%, to $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared with the three months ended March 31, 2012, primarily reflecting an increase in the gain on sale of investments of $561,000. The quarter ended March 31, 2013, included gains on the sale of investments of $708,000 before tax compared with $147,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Noninterest income increased $1.3 million, or 42.48% to $4.5 million for the six months ended March 31, 2012 from $3.1 million for the comparable period in 2012. The primary reasons for the increase were increases in service fees on deposit accounts of $130,000, services charges and fees on loans of $113,000, gain on sale of investments of $591,000 and gain on sale of loans of $407,000.

Allan Muto, EVP and CFO, commented: "While our fiscal second quarter and six month results reflect the continued positive impact of the recapture of fair value adjustments and net accretion as a result of the acquired performing and non-performing loans from First Star, we expect these accounting related adjustments to become less significant by the end of fiscal 2013. We sold certain mortgage backed securities at a gain and provided some necessary liquidity to our holding company, in order to fund our continued stock repurchase program. We remain diligently focused on improving our financial performance in all areas of our business."

Noninterest expense increased $1.9 million to $8.8 million or 27.87%, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, from $6.9 million for the comparable period in 2012, reflecting increases in compensation and employee benefits of $1.1 million, occupancy and equipment of $254,000, data processing of $298,000 and professional fees of $189,000. These increases were partially offset by decreases in merger related costs of $227,000 and a decrease in the cost to liquidate foreclosed real estate of $212,000.

Noninterest expense increased $2.8 million to $16.3 million or 20.38%, for the six months ended March 31, 2013, from $13.5 million for the comparable period in 2012, reflecting increases in compensation and employee benefits of $1.7 million, occupancy and equipment of $447,000, data processing of $479,000 and amortization of intangible assets of $337,000. These increases were partially offset by decreases in merger related costs of $376,000 and a decrease in the cost to liquidate foreclosed real estate of $505,000.

The increases in noninterest expenses were due primarily to the larger organization in the 2013 periods compared with the 2012 periods.

Balance Sheet, Asset Quality and Capital Adequacy

Total assets decreased $32.9 million, or 2.32%, to $1.39 billion at March 31, 2013, compared to $1.42 billion at September 30, 2012, although up significantly compared with pre-merger total assets. Increases in cash and cash equivalents of $8.4 million, compared with September 30, 2012, were offset by decreases in total investment securities of $14.6 million, loans receivable of $11.2 million, regulatory stock of $5.6 million and other assets of $8.6 million.

Total deposits increased $8.4 million, or 0.84%, to $1.0 billion at March 31, 2013, from $995.6 million at September 30, 2012. Borrowings decreased $43.6 million to $191.1 million from $234.7 million during the same period.

Nonperforming assets totaled $28.6 million, or 2.06%, of total assets at March 31, 2013, compared with $27.2 million, or 1.92%, of total assets at September 30, 2012. The increase in nonperforming assets of $1.4 million at March 31, 2013 compared to September 30, 2012 was due primarily to an increase in non-performing residential mortgage loans of $2.4 million which was offset in part by a decline in foreclosed real estate of $1.3 million. The Company made a provision for loan losses of $850,000 and $1.9 million for the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2013, respectively, compared with provisions of $650,000 and $1.2 million for the comparable three and six month periods in 2012. The allowance for loan losses was $7.7 million, or 0.81%, of loans outstanding at March 31, 2013, compared to $7.3 million, or 0.76%, of loans outstanding at September 30, 2012.

Stockholders' equity decreased $3.7 million, or 2.08%, to $171.8 million at March 31, 2013, from $175.4 million at September 30, 2012. The decrease was due primarily to the stock repurchase program announced during the first fiscal quarter. For the six months ended March 31, 2013, the Company repurchased 640,209 shares at an average cost of $11.07 per share. The Company's tier 1 leverage ratio was 12.10%, and tangible equity to total assets was 11.56%.

Olson concluded: "Our primary focus is on growing shareholder value in a prudent manner, despite a difficult prolonged interest rate and economic environment for all financial institutions. Our strong capital position and newly established positioning as a go-to commercial and residential lender in the Lehigh Valley provides management and the board with great confidence in ESSA's future. We remain nimble as an organization and will continue to look for ways to increase value for shareholders in the coming periods."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
SYS-CON Events has announced today that Roger Strukhoff has been named conference chair of Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo 2017 New York.

Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
You have great SaaS business app ideas. You want to turn your idea quickly into a functional and engaging proof of concept.

How could you achieve all the above and yet avoid unforeseen IT requirements that add unnecessary cost and complexity? You also want your app to be responsive in any device at any time. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Allen, General Manager of...
Today’s IT environments are increasingly heterogeneous, with Linux, Java, Oracle and MySQL considered nearly as common as traditional Windows environments. In many cases, these platforms have been integrated into an organization’s Windows-based IT department by way of an acquisition of a company that leverages one of those platforms. In other cases, the applications may have been part of the IT department for years, but managed by a separate department or singular administrator. Still, whether...
Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Phil Hombledal, Solution Architect at CollabNet, discussed how customers are able to achieve a level of transparency that e...
Logs are continuous digital records of events generated by all components of your software stack – and they’re everywhere – your networks, servers, applications, containers and cloud infrastructure just to name a few. The data logs provide are like an X-ray for your IT infrastructure. Without logs, this lack of visibility creates operational challenges for managing modern applications that drive today’s digital businesses.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
