NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions for Form 10-Q and therefore do not include information or footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The results of operations for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the entire fiscal year.

 

2. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In January 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU” or “Update”) 2014-01, Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323): Accounting for Investments in Qualified Affordable Housing Projects. The amendments in this Update permit reporting entities to make an accounting policy election to account for their investments in qualified affordable housing projects using the proportional amortization method if certain conditions are met. Under the proportional amortization method, an entity amortizes the initial cost of the investment in proportion to the tax credits and other tax benefits received and recognizes the net investment performance in the income statement as a component of income tax expense (benefit). The amendments in this Update should be applied retrospectively to all periods presented. A reporting entity that uses the effective yield method to account for its investments in qualified affordable housing projects before the date of adoption may continue to apply the effective yield method for those preexisting investments. The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for annual periods and interim reporting periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2014. Early adoption is permitted. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In January 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-04, Receivables – Troubled Debt Restructurings by Creditors (Subtopic 310-40): Reclassification of Residential Real Estate Collateralized Consumer Mortgage Loans upon Foreclosure. The amendments in this Update clarify that an in substance repossession or foreclosure occurs, and a creditor is considered to have received physical possession of residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan, upon either (1) the creditor obtaining legal title to the residential real estate property upon completion of a foreclosure or (2) the borrower conveying all interest in the residential real estate property to the creditor to satisfy that loan through completion of a deed in lieu of foreclosure or through a similar legal agreement. Additionally, the amendments require interim and annual disclosure of both (1) the amount of foreclosed residential real estate property held by the creditor and (2) the recorded investment in consumer mortgage loans collateralized by residential real estate property that are in the process of foreclosure according to local requirements of the applicable jurisdiction. The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2014. An entity can elect to adopt the amendments in this Update using either a modified retrospective transition method or a prospective transition method. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (a new revenue recognition standard). The Update’s core principle is that a company will recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, this update specifies the accounting for certain costs to obtain or fulfill a contract with a customer and expands disclosure requirements for revenue recognition. This Update is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. The Company is evaluating the effect of adopting this new accounting Update.

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-11, Transfers and Servicing (Topic 860): Repurchase-to-Maturity Transactions, Repurchase Financings, and Disclosures. The amendments in this Update change the accounting for repurchase-to-maturity transactions to secured borrowing accounting. For repurchase financing arrangements, the amendments require separate accounting for a transfer of a financial asset executed contemporaneously with a repurchase agreement with the same counterparty, which will result in secured borrowing accounting for the repurchase agreement. The amendments also require enhanced disclosures. The accounting changes in this Update are effective for the first interim or annual period beginning after December 15, 2014. An entity is required to present changes in accounting for transactions outstanding on the effective date as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the period of adoption. Earlier application is prohibited. The disclosure for certain transactions accounted for as a sale is required to be presented for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2014, and the disclosure for repurchase agreements, securities lending transactions, and repurchase-to-maturity transactions accounted for as secured borrowings is required to be presented for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2014, and for interim periods beginning after March 15, 2015. The disclosures are not required to be presented for comparative periods before the effective date. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of the standard will have on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-12, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Accounting for Share-Based Payments when the Terms of an Award Provide that a Performance Target Could Be Achieved After the Requisite Service Period. The amendments require that a performance target that affects vesting and that could be achieved after the requisite service period be treated as a performance condition. The amendments in this Update are effective for annual periods and interim periods within those annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015. Earlier adoption is permitted. Entities may apply the amendments in this Update either (a) prospectively to all awards granted or modified after the effective date or (b) retrospectively to all awards with performance targets that are outstanding as of the beginning of the earliest annual period presented in the financial statements and to all new or modified awards thereafter. If retrospective transition is adopted, the cumulative effect of applying this Update as of the beginning of the earliest annual period presented in the financial statements should be recognized as an adjustment to the opening retained earnings balance at that date. Additionally, if retrospective transition is adopted, an entity may use hindsight in measuring and recognizing the compensation cost. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-14, Receivables – Troubled Debt Restructurings by Creditors (Subtopic 310-40). The amendments in this Update require that a mortgage loan be derecognized and that a separate other receivable be recognized upon foreclosure if the following conditions are met: (1) the loan has a government guarantee that is not separable from the loan before foreclosure, (2) at the time of foreclosure, the creditor has the intent to convey the real estate property to the guarantor and make a claim on the guarantee, and the creditor has the ability to recover under that claim, and (3) at the time of foreclosure, any amount of the claim that is determined on the basis of the fair value of the real estate is fixed. Upon foreclosure, the separate other receivable should be measured based on the amount of the loan balance (principal and interest) expected to be recovered from the guarantor. The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2014. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements -Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40). The amendments in this Update provide guidance in accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America about management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures. The amendments in this Update are effective for the annual period ending after December 15, 2016, and for annual periods and interim periods thereafter. Early application is permitted. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In November 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-16, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Determining Whether the Host Contract in a Hybrid Financial Instrument Issued in the Form of a Share Is More Akin to Debt or to Equity (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force). This ASU clarifies how current U.S. GAAP should be interpreted in subjectively evaluating the economic characteristics and risks of a host contract in a hybrid financial instrument that is issued in the form of a share. Public business entities are required to implement the new requirements in fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In November 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-17, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Pushdown Accounting. The amendments in this Update apply to the separate financial statements of an acquired entity and its subsidiaries that are a business or nonprofit activity (either public or nonpublic) upon the occurrence of an event in which an acquirer (an individual or an entity) obtains control of the acquired entity. An acquired entity may elect the option to apply pushdown accounting in the reporting period in which the change-in-control event occurs. If pushdown accounting is not applied in the reporting period in which the change-in-control event occurs, an acquired entity will have the option to elect to apply pushdown accounting in a subsequent reporting period to the acquired entity’s most recent change-in-control event. The amendments in this Update were effective on November 18, 2014. After the effective date, an acquired entity can make an election to apply the guidance to future change-in-control events or to its most recent change-in-control event. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In January 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-01, Income Statement –Extraordinary and Unusual Items, as part of its initiative to reduce complexity in accounting standards. This Update eliminates from GAAP the concept of extraordinary items. The amendments in this Update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. A reporting entity may apply the amendments prospectively. A reporting entity also may apply the amendments retrospectively to all prior periods presented in the financial statements. Early adoption is permitted provided that the guidance is applied from the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

There are no convertible securities that would affect the numerator in calculating basic and diluted earnings per share; therefore, net income as presented on the Consolidated Statement of Income is used.

At December 31, 2014, and 2013, there were 114,519 options outstanding with an exercise price of $16.20 which were anti-dilutive for the three and six month periods.

 

4. STOCK BASED COMPENSATION DISCLOSURE

The Company’s 2008 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), which was approved by shareholders in October 2008, permits the grant of stock options or restricted shares to its directors and employees for up to 152,000 shares (up to 38,000 restricted shares may be issued). Option awards are generally granted with an exercise price equal to the market price of the Company’s stock at the date of grant; those option awards generally vest over five years of continuous service and have ten-year contractual terms.

During the six month periods ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded $0 and $7 thousand, respectively, in compensation expense related to our share-based compensation awards. As of December 31, 2014, there was no unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested share-based compensation awards granted in fiscal 2009.

The Company had no non-vested stock options outstanding at December 31, 2014, and 9,729 unvested stock options outstanding at December 31, 2013. There were no stock options exercised or issued during the six months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013.

6. MORTGAGE-BACKED SECURITIES

Mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”) include mortgage pass-through certificates (“PCs”) and collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMOs”). With a pass-through security, investors own an undivided interest in the pool of mortgages that collateralize the PCs. Principal and interest is passed through to the investor as it is generated by the mortgages underlying the pool. PCs and CMOs may be insured or guaranteed by Freddie Mac (“FHLMC”), Fannie Mae (“FNMA”) and the Government National Mortgage Association (“GNMA”). CMOs may also be privately issued with varying degrees of credit enhancements. A CMO reallocates mortgage pool cash flow to a series of bonds (called traunches) with varying stated maturities, estimated average lives, coupon rates and prepayment characteristics.

The Company’s CMO portfolio is comprised of two segments: CMOs backed by U.S. Government Agencies (“Agency CMOs”) and CMOs backed by single-family whole loans not guaranteed by a U.S. Government Agency (“Private-Label CMOs”).

At December 31, 2014, the Company’s Agency CMOs totaled $192.3 million as compared to $212.8 million at June 30, 2014. The Company’s private-label CMOs totaled $2.3 million at December 31, 2014 as compared to $2.5 million at June 30, 2014. The $20.7 million decrease in the CMO segment of our MBS portfolio was primarily due to repayments on our Agency and private-label CMOs which totaled $32.5 million and $379 thousand, respectively, which were partially offset by purchases of U.S. Government agency CMOs totaling $12.0 million. During the six months ended December 31, 2014, the Company received principal payments totaling $379 thousand on its private-label CMOs. At December 31, 2014, approximately $194.6 million or 100.0% (book value) of the Company’s MBS portfolio, including CMOs, were comprised of adjustable or floating rate investments, as compared to $215.3 million or 100.0% at June 30, 2014. Substantially all of the Company’s floating rate MBS adjust monthly based upon changes in the one month LIBOR. The Company has no investment in multi-family or commercial real estate based MBS.

Due to prepayments of the underlying loans, and the prepayment characteristics of the CMO traunches, the actual maturities of the Company’s MBS are expected to be substantially less than the scheduled maturities.

Table of Contents

The Company retains an independent third party to assist it in the determination of a fair value for its three private-label CMOs. This valuation is meant to be a “Level Three” valuation as defined by ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures. The valuation does not represent the actual terms or prices at which any party could purchase the securities. There is currently no active secondary market for private-label CMOs and there can be no assurance that any secondary market for private-label CMOs will develop. The private-label CMO portfolio had three previously recorded other-than-temporary impairments at December 31, 2014. During the six months ending December 31, 2014, the Company reversed $100 thousand of non-credit unrealized holding losses on its three private-label CMOs with OTTI due to principal repayments. During the six months ended December 31, 2014, the Company recorded no additional credit impairment charges on its private-label CMO portfolio.

The Company believes that the data and assumptions used to determine the fair values are reasonable. The fair value calculations reflect relevant facts and market conditions. Events and conditions occurring after the valuation date could have a material effect on the private-label CMO segment’s fair value.

The following table sets forth information with respect to the Company’s private-label CMO portfolio as of December 31, 2014. At the time of purchase, all of our private-label CMOs were rated in the highest investment category by at least two ratings agencies.

For debt securities, impairment is considered to be other than temporary if an entity (1) intends to sell the security, (2) more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovering its amortized cost basis, or (3) does not expect to recover the security’s entire amortized cost basis (even if the entity does not intend to sell the security). In addition, impairment is considered to be other than temporary if the present value of cash flows expected to be collected from the debt security is less than the amortized cost basis of the security (any such shortfall is referred to as a credit loss).

The Company evaluates outstanding available-for-sale and held-to-maturity securities in an unrealized loss position (i.e., impaired securities) for Other than temporary impairment (“OTTI”) on a quarterly basis. In doing so, the Company considers many factors including, but not limited to: the credit ratings assigned to the securities by the Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations (NRSROs); other indicators of the credit quality of the issuer; the strength of the provider of any guarantees; the length of time and extent that fair value has been less than amortized cost; and whether the Company has the intent to sell the security or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before its anticipated recovery. In the case of its private label residential MBS, the Company also considers prepayment speeds, the historical and projected performance of the underlying loans and the credit support provided by the subordinate securities. These evaluations are inherently subjective and consider a number of quantitative and qualitative factors.

Table of Contents

The following table presents a roll-forward of the credit loss component of the amortized cost of mortgage-backed securities that we have written down for OTTI and the credit component of the loss that is recognized in earnings. OTTI recognized in earnings for credit impaired mortgage-backed securities is presented as additions in two components based upon whether the current period is the first time the mortgage-backed security was credit-impaired (initial credit impairment) or is not the first time the mortgage-backed security was credit impaired (subsequent credit impairments). The credit loss component is reduced if we sell, intend to sell or believe that we will be required to sell previously credit-impaired mortgage-backed securities. Additionally, the credit loss component is reduced if we receive cash flows in excess of what we expected to receive over the remaining life of the credit impaired mortgage-backed securities, the security matures or is fully written down.

During the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, the Company recorded no credit impairment charge and no non-credit unrealized holding loss to accumulated other comprehensive income. During the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, the Company accreted back into other comprehensive income $25 thousand and $65 thousand, respectively, (net of income tax effect of $14 thousand and $34 thousand, respectively), based on principal repayments on private-label CMOs previously identified with OTTI.

In the case of its private-label residential CMOs that exhibit adverse risk characteristics, the Company employs models to determine the cash flows that it is likely to collect from the securities. These models consider borrower characteristics and the particular attributes of the loans underlying the securities, in conjunction with assumptions about future changes in home prices and interest rates, to predict the likelihood a loan will default and the impact on default frequency, loss severity and remaining credit enhancement. A significant input to these models is the forecast of future housing price changes for the relevant states and metropolitan statistical areas, which are based upon an assessment of the various housing markets. In general, since the ultimate receipt of contractual payments on these securities will depend upon the credit and prepayment performance of the underlying loans and, if needed, the credit enhancements for the senior securities owned by the Company, the Company uses these models to assess whether the credit enhancement associated with each security is sufficient to protect against likely losses of principal and interest on the underlying mortgage loans. The development of the modeling assumptions requires significant judgment.

In conjunction with our adoption of ASC Topic 820 effective June 30, 2009, the Company retained an independent third party to assist it with assessing its investments within the private-label CMO portfolio. The independent third party utilized certain assumptions for producing the cash flow analyses used in the OTTI assessment. Key assumptions would include interest rates, expected market participant spreads and discount rates, housing prices, projected future delinquency levels and assumed loss rates on any liquidated collateral.

Table of Contents

The Company reviewed the independent third party’s assumptions used in the December 31, 2014 OTTI process. Based on the results of this review, the Company deemed the independent third party’s assumptions to be reasonable and adopted them. However, different assumptions could produce materially different results, which could impact the Company’s conclusions as to whether an impairment is considered other-than-temporary and the magnitude of the credit loss. Management believes that no additional private-label CMOs in the portfolio had an other-than-temporary impairment at December 31, 2014, keeping the total at three private-label CMOs with OTTI at December 31, 2014.

If the Company intends to sell an impaired debt security, or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis, the impairment is other-than-temporary and is recognized currently in earnings in an amount equal to the entire difference between fair value and amortized cost. The Company does not anticipate selling its private-label CMO portfolio, nor does Management believe that the Company will be required to sell these securities before recovery of this amortized cost basis.

In instances in which the Company determines that a credit loss exists but the Company does not intend to sell the security and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the security before the anticipated recovery of its remaining amortized cost basis, the OTTI is separated into (1) the amount of the total impairment related to the credit loss and (2) the amount of the total impairment related to all other factors (i.e., the noncredit portion). The amount of the total OTTI related to the credit loss is recognized in earnings and the amount of the total OTTI related to all other factors is recognized in accumulated other comprehensive loss. The total OTTI is presented in the Consolidated Statement of Income with an offset for the amount of the total OTTI that is recognized in accumulated other comprehensive loss. Absent the intent or requirement to sell a security, if a credit loss does not exist, any impairment is considered to be temporary.

Regardless of whether an OTTI is recognized in its entirety in earnings or if the credit portion is recognized in earnings and the noncredit portion is recognized in other comprehensive income (loss), the estimation of fair values has a significant impact on the amount(s) of any impairment that is recorded.

The noncredit portion of any OTTI losses on securities classified as available-for-sale is adjusted to fair value with an offsetting adjustment to the carrying value of the security. The fair value adjustment could increase or decrease the carrying value of the security. All of the Company’s private-label CMOs were originally, and continue to be classified, as held to maturity.

In periods subsequent to the recognition of an OTTI loss, the other-than-temporarily impaired debt security is accounted for as if it had been purchased on the measurement date of the OTTI at an amount equal to the previous amortized cost basis less the credit-related OTTI recognized in earnings. For debt securities for which credit-related OTTI is recognized in earnings, the difference between the new cost basis and the cash flows expected to be collected is accreted into interest income over the remaining life of the security in a prospective manner based on the amount and timing of future estimated cash flows.

The Company had investments in 18 positions that were impaired at December 31, 2014. Based on its analysis, management has concluded that three private-label CMOs are other-than-temporarily impaired, while the remaining securities portfolio has experienced unrealized losses and a decrease in fair value due to interest rate volatility, illiquidity in the marketplace, or credit deterioration in the U.S. mortgage markets.

Impaired loans are loans for which it is probable the Company will not be able to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. The following loan categories are collectively evaluated for impairment. First mortgage loans: 1 – 4 family dwellings and all consumer loan categories (home equity, home equity lines of credit, and other). The following loan categories are individually evaluated for impairment. First mortgage loans: construction, land acquisition and development, multi-family dwellings, and commercial. The Company evaluates commercial loans not secured by real property individually for impairment.

The definition of “impaired loans” is not the same as the definition of “nonaccrual loans,” although the two categories overlap. The Company may choose to place a loan on nonaccrual status due to payment delinquency or uncertain collectability, while not classifying the loan as impaired if the loan is not a commercial or commercial real estate loan. Factors considered by management in determining impairment include payment status and collateral value. The amount of impairment for these types of impaired loans is determined by the difference between the present value of the expected cash flows related to the loan, using the original interest rate, and its recorded value, or as a practical expedient in the case of collateralized loans, the difference between the fair value of the collateral and the recorded amount of the loans. When foreclosure is probable, impairment is measured based on the fair value of the collateral.

Loans that experience insignificant payment delays, which are defined as 90 days or less, generally are not classified as impaired. Management determines the significance of payment delays on a case-by-case basis taking into consideration all circumstances surrounding the loan and the borrower, including the length of the delay, the borrower’s prior payment record, and the amount of shortfall in relation to the principal and interest owed.

The Company’s loan portfolio also includes troubled debt restructurings (TDRs), where economic concessions have been granted to borrowers who have experienced or are expected to experience financial difficulties. These concessions typically result from the Company’s loss mitigation activities and could include reductions in the interest rate, payment extensions, forgiveness of principal, forbearance or other actions. Certain TDRs are classified as nonperforming at the time of restructure and may only be returned to performing status after considering the borrower’s sustained repayment performance for a reasonable period, generally six months.

The following tables include the recorded investment and number of modifications for modified loans, as of December 31, 2014 and 2013. The Company reports the recorded investment in the loans prior to a modification and also the recorded investment in the loans after the loans were restructured.

When the Company modifies a loan, management evaluates any possible impairment based on the present value of expected future cash flows, discounted at the contractual interest rate of the original loan agreement, except when the sole (remaining) source of repayment for the loan is the operation or

liquidation of the collateral. In these cases, management uses the current fair value of the collateral, less selling costs, instead of discounted cash flows. If management determines that the value of the modified loan is less than the recorded investment in the loan (net of previous charge-offs, deferred loan fees or costs and unamortized premium or discount), impairment is recognized by segment or class of loan, as applicable, through an allowance estimate or a charge-off to the allowance. Segment and class status is determined by the loan’s classification at origination.

The allowance for loan losses is established through provisions for loan losses charged against income. Loans deemed to be uncollectible are charged against the allowance account. Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance. The allowance is maintained at a level believed adequate by management to absorb estimated potential loan losses. Management’s determination of the adequacy of the allowance is based on periodic evaluations of the loan portfolio considering past experience, current economic conditions, composition of the loan portfolio and other relevant factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective, as it requires material estimates that may be susceptible to significant change.

Effective December 13, 2006, the FDIC, in conjunction with the other federal banking agencies adopted a Revised Interagency Policy Statement on the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (“ALLL”). The revised policy statement revised and replaced the banking agencies’ 1993 policy statement on the ALLL. The revised policy statement provides that an institution must maintain an ALLL at a level that is appropriate to cover estimated credit losses on individually evaluated loans determined to be impaired, as well as estimated credit losses inherent in the remainder of the loan and lease portfolio. The banking agencies also revised the policy to ensure consistency with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The revised policy statement updates the previous guidance that describes the responsibilities of the board of directors, management, and bank examiners regarding the ALLL, factors to be considered in the estimation of the ALLL, and the objectives and elements of an effective loan review system.

Federal regulations require that each insured savings institution classify its assets on a regular basis. In addition, in connection with examinations of insured institutions, federal examiners have authority to identify problem assets and, if appropriate, classify them. There are three classifications for problem assets: “substandard”, “doubtful” and “loss”. Substandard assets have one or more defined weaknesses and are characterized by the distinct possibility that the insured institution will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected. Doubtful assets have the weaknesses of those classified as substandard with the added characteristic that the weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full on the basis of currently existing facts, conditions and values questionable, and there is a high possibility of loss. An asset classified as loss is considered uncollectible and of such little value that continuance as an asset of the institution is not warranted. Another category designated “asset watch” is also utilized by the Bank for assets which do not currently expose an insured institution to a sufficient degree of risk to warrant classification as substandard, doubtful or loss. Assets classified as substandard or doubtful require the institution to establish general allowances for loan losses. If an asset or portion thereof is classified as loss, the insured institution must either establish specific allowances for loan losses in the amount of 100% of the portion of the asset classified loss, or charge-off such amount. General loss allowances established to cover possible losses related to assets classified substandard or doubtful may be included in determining an institution’s regulatory capital, while specific valuation allowances for loan losses do not qualify as regulatory capital.

The Company’s general policy is to internally classify its assets on a regular basis and establish prudent general valuation allowances that are adequate to absorb losses that have not been identified but that are inherent in the loan portfolio. The Company maintains general valuation allowances that it believes are adequate to absorb losses in its loan portfolio that are not clearly attributable to specific loans. The Company’s general valuation allowances are within the following general ranges: (1) 0% to 5% of assets subject to special mention; (2) 1.00% to 100% of assets classified substandard; and (3) 50% to 100% of assets classified doubtful. Any loan classified as loss is charged-off. To further monitor and assess the risk characteristics of the loan portfolio, loan delinquencies are reviewed to consider any developing problem loans. Based upon the procedures in place, considering the Company’s past charge-offs and recoveries and assessing the current risk elements in the portfolio, management believes the allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2014, is adequate.

Credit quality information

The following tables represent credit exposure by internally assigned grades for the period ended December 31, 2014. The grading system analysis estimates the capability of the borrower to repay the contractual obligations of the loan agreements as scheduled or not at all. The Company’s internal credit risk grading system is based on experiences with similarly graded loans.

The Company’s internally assigned grades are as follows:

Pass – loans which are protected by the current net worth and paying capacity of the obligor or by the value of the underlying collateral.

Special Mention – loans where a potential weakness or risk exists, which could cause a more serious problem if not corrected.

Substandard – loans that have a well-defined weakness based on objective evidence and can be characterized by the distinct possibility that the Company will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected.

Doubtful – loans classified as doubtful have all the weaknesses inherent in a substandard loan. In addition, these weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full highly questionable and improbable, based on existing circumstances.

Loss – loans classified as loss are considered uncollectible, or of such value that continuance as a loan is not warranted.

The primary credit quality indicator used by management in the 1 – 4 family and consumer loan portfolios is the performance status of the loans. Payment activity is reviewed by Management on a monthly basis to determine how loans are performing. Loans are considered to be non-performing when they become 90 days delinquent, have a history of delinquency, or have other inherent characteristics which Management deems to be weaknesses.

The following tables presents the Company’s internally classified construction, land acquisition and development, multi-family residential, commercial real estate and commercial (not secured by real estate) loans at December 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014.

The Company determines its allowance for loan losses in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company uses a systematic methodology as required by Financial Reporting Release No. 28 and the various Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council guidelines. The Company also endeavors to adhere to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 102 in connection with loan loss allowance methodology and documentation issues.

Our methodology used to determine the allocated portion of the allowance is as follows. For groups of homogenous loans, we apply a loss rate to the groups’ aggregate balance. Our group loss rate reflects our historical loss experience. We may adjust these group rates to compensate for changes in environmental factors; but our adjustments have not been frequent due to a relatively stable charge-off experience. The Company also monitors industry loss experience on similar loan portfolio segments. We then identify loans for individual evaluation under ASC Topic 310. If the individually identified loans are performing, we apply a segment specific loss rate adjusted for relevant environmental factors, if necessary, for those loans reviewed individually and considered individually impaired, we use one of the three methods for measuring impairment mandated by ASC Topic 310. Generally the fair value of collateral is used since our impaired loans are generally real estate based. In connection with the fair value of collateral measurement, the Company

generally uses an independent appraisal and determines costs to sell. The Company’s appraisals for commercial income based loans, such as multi-family and commercial real estate loans, assess value based upon the operating cash flows of the business as opposed to merely “as built” values. The Company then validates the reasonableness of our calculated allowances by: (1) reviewing trends in loan volume, delinquencies, restructurings and concentrations; (2) reviewing prior period (historical) charge-offs and recoveries; and (3) presenting the results of this process, quarterly, to the Asset Classification Committee and the Savings Bank’s Board of Directors. We then tabulate, format and summarize the current loan loss allowance balance for financial and regulatory reporting purposes.

The Company had no unallocated loss allowance balance at December 31, 2014.

The allowance for loan losses represents the amount which management estimates is adequate to provide for probable losses inherent in its loan portfolio. The allowance method is used in providing for loan losses. Accordingly, all loan losses are charged to the allowance, and all recoveries are credited to it. The allowance for loan losses is established through a provision for loan losses charged to operations. The provision for loan losses is based on management’s periodic evaluation of individual loans, economic factors, past loan loss experience, changes in the composition and volume of the portfolio, and other relevant factors. The estimates used in determining the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses, including the amounts and timing of future cash flows expected on impaired loans, are particularly susceptible to changes in the near term.

The following tables present the activity in the allowance for loan losses for the three and six month periods ended December 31, 2014 and 2013.

10. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for an asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. GAAP established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the use of inputs used in valuation methodologies into the following three levels:

 

Level I:

Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reported date.

Level II:

Pricing inputs are other than the quoted prices in active markets, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date. The nature of these assets and liabilities includes items for which quoted prices are available but traded less frequently and items that are fair-valued using other financial instruments, the parameters of which can be directly observed.

Level III:

Assets and liabilities that have little to no pricing observability as of the reported date. These items do not have two-way markets and are measured using management’s best estimate of fair value, where the inputs into the determination of fair value require significant management judgment or estimation.

Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

Investment Securities Available-for-Sale

Fair values for securities available for sale are determined by obtaining quoted prices on nationally recognized securities exchanges or matrix pricing, which is a mathematical technique widely used in the industry to value debt securities without relying exclusively on quoted prices for the specific securities, but rather by relying on the securities’ relationship to other benchmark quoted securities. The Company has no Level I or Level III investment securities. Level II investment securities were primarily comprised of investment-grade corporate bonds and U.S. dollar-denominated investment-grade corporate bonds of large foreign issuers.

The following tables present the assets reported on a recurring basis on the Consolidated Balance Sheet at their fair value as of December 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014, by level within the fair value hierarchy. As required by GAAP, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis

The Company may be required, from time to time, to measure certain financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value on a nonrecurring basis in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. These include assets that are measured at the lower of cost or market value that were recognized at fair value below cost at the end of the period.

Impaired Loans

Loans for which it is probable that payment of interest and principal will not be made in accordance with the contractual terms of the loan agreement are considered impaired. Once a loan is identified as individually impaired, management measures impairment in accordance with ASC Topic 310. The fair value of impaired loans is estimated using one of several methods, including collateral value, liquidation value and discounted cash flows. Those impaired loans not requiring an allowance represent loans for which the fair value of the expected repayments or collateral exceed the recorded investments in such loans. Collateral values are estimated using Level II inputs based on observable market data or Level III inputs based on customized discounting criteria. For a majority of impaired real estate related loans, the Company obtains a current external appraisal. Other valuation techniques are used as well, including internal valuations, comparable property analysis and contractual sales information. The Company has no Level I or Level II impaired loans. Level III impaired loans were primarily comprised of one single-family residential construction loan, one land loan, and one home equity line of credit.

The following tables present the assets reported on a non-recurring basis on the consolidated balance sheet at their fair values as of December 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014, by level within the fair value hierarchy. As required by GAAP, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

When evaluating the value of the collateral on impaired loans, the Company will consider the age of the most current appraisal, and may discount the appraised value from 1.0% to 15.0%.

The Company classifies financial instruments in Level III of the fair value hierarchy when there is reliance on at least one significant unobservable input to the valuation model. In addition to these unobservable inputs, the valuation model for Level III financial instruments typically also rely on a number of inputs that are readily observable, either directly or indirectly.

 

 

  (1) 

Fair value is generally determined through independent appraisals of the underlying collateral, which generally include various level III inputs which are not identifiable.

  (2) 

Appraisals may be adjusted by management for qualitative factors such as economic conditions. The range and weighted average of appraisal adjustments are presented as a percentage of the appraisals.

Financial instruments are defined as cash, evidence of an ownership interest in an entity, or a contract which creates an obligation or right to receive or deliver cash or another financial instrument from or to a second entity on potentially favorable or unfavorable terms.

Fair value is defined as the amount at which a financial instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. If a quoted market price is available for a financial instrument, the estimated fair value would be calculated based upon the market price per trading unit of the instrument.

If no readily available market exists, the fair value estimates for financial instruments should be based upon management’s judgment regarding current economic conditions, interest rate risk, expected cash flows, future estimated losses, and other factors, as determined through various option pricing formulas or simulation modeling. As many of these assumptions result from judgments made by management based upon estimates, which are inherently uncertain, the resulting estimated values may not be indicative of the amount realizable in the sale of a particular financial instrument. In addition, changes in the assumptions on which the estimated values are based may have a significant impact on the resulting estimated values.

As certain assets and liabilities, such as deferred tax assets, premises and equipment, and many other operational elements of the Company, are not considered financial instruments, but have value, this estimated fair value of financial instruments would not represent the full market value of the Company.

Table of Contents

Estimated fair values have been determined by the Company using the best available data, as generally provided in internal Savings Bank regulatory, or third party valuation reports, using an estimation methodology suitable for each category of financial instruments. The estimation methodologies used are as follows:

Cash and Cash Equivalents, Certificates of Deposit, Accrued Interest Receivable and Payable, and FHLB Short-term Advances

The fair value approximates the current carrying value.

Investment Securities, Mortgage-Backed Securities, and FHLB Stock

The fair value of investment and mortgage-backed securities is equal to the available quoted market price. If no quoted market price is available, fair value is estimated using the quoted market price for similar securities. For discussion of valuation of private-label CMOs, see Note 8 “Unrealized Losses on Securities”. Since the FHLB stock is not actively traded on a secondary market and held exclusively by member financial institutions, the estimated fair market value approximates the carrying amount.

Net Loans Receivable, Deposits, and Advance Payments by Borrowers for Taxes and Insurance

Fair value for consumer mortgage loans is estimated using market quotes or discounting contractual cash flows for prepayment estimates. Discount rates were obtained from secondary market sources, adjusted to reflect differences in servicing, credit, and other characteristics.

The estimated fair values for consumer, fixed-rate commercial, and multi-family real estate loans are estimated by discounting contractual cash flows for prepayment estimates. Discount rates are based upon rates generally charged for such loans with similar credit characteristics.

The estimated fair value for nonperforming loans is the appraised value of the underlying collateral adjusted for estimated credit risk.

Demand, savings, money market deposit accounts, and advance payments by borrowers for taxes and insurance are reported at book value. The fair value of certificates of deposit is based upon the discounted value of the contractual cash flows. The discount rate is estimated using average market rates for deposits with similar average terms.

Bank Owned Life Insurance (“BOLI”)

The fair value of BOLI approximates the cash surrender value of the policies at these dates.

FHLB Long-term Advances

The fair values of fixed-rate advances are estimated using discounted cash flows, based on current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements. The carrying amount on variable rate advances approximates their fair value.

Commitments to Extend Credit

These financial instruments are generally not subject to sale, and estimated fair values are not readily available. The carrying value, represented by the net deferred fee arising from the unrecognized commitment, and the fair value, determined by discounting the remaining contractual fee over the term of the commitment using fees currently charged to enter into similar agreements with similar credit risk, is not considered material for disclosure.

ITEM 2.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2014

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

In the normal course of business, we, in an effort to help keep our shareholders and the public informed about our operations, may from time to time issue or make certain statements, either in writing or orally, that are or contain forward-looking statements, as that term is defined in the U.S. federal securities laws. Generally, these statements relate to business plans or strategies, projected or anticipated benefits from acquisitions made by or to be made by us, projections involving anticipated revenues, earnings, profitability or other aspects of operating results or other future developments in our affairs or the industry in which we conduct business. Forward-looking statements may be identified by reference to a future period or periods or by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipated,” “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate” or similar expressions.

Although we believe that the anticipated results or other expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurance that those results or expectations will be attained. Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions (some of which are beyond our control), and as a result actual results may differ materially from those expressed in forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ from forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following, as well as those discussed elsewhere herein:

 

   

our investments in our businesses and in related technology could require additional incremental spending, and might not produce expected deposit and loan growth and anticipated contributions to our earnings;

 

   

general economic or industry conditions could be less favorable than expected, resulting in a deterioration in credit quality, a change in the allowance for loan losses or a reduced demand for credit or fee-based products and services;

 

   

changes in the interest rate environment could reduce net interest income and could increase credit losses;

 

   

the conditions of the securities markets could change, which could adversely affect, among other things, the value or credit quality of our assets, the availability and terms of funding necessary to meet our liquidity needs and our ability to originate loans and leases;

 

   

changes in the extensive laws, regulations and policies governing financial holding companies and their subsidiaries could alter our business environment or affect our operations;

 

   

the potential need to adapt to industry changes in information technology systems, on which we are highly dependent, could present operational issues or require significant capital spending;

 

   

competitive pressures could intensify and affect our profitability, including as a result of continued industry consolidation, the increased availability of financial services from non-banks, technological developments such as the internet or bank regulatory reform; and

 

   

acts or threats of terrorism and actions taken by the United States or other governments as a result of such acts or threats, including possible military action, could further adversely affect business and economic conditions in the United States generally and in our principal markets, which could have an adverse effect on our financial performance and that of our borrowers and on the financial markets and the price of our common stock.

You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update them in light of new or future events except to the extent required by federal securities laws.

GENERAL

WVS Financial Corp. (the “Company”) is the parent holding company of West View Savings Bank (“West View” or the “Savings Bank”). The Company was organized in July 1993 as a Pennsylvania-chartered unitary bank holding company and acquired 100% of the common stock of the Savings Bank in November 1993.

West View Savings Bank is a Pennsylvania-chartered, FDIC-insured stock savings bank conducting business from six offices in the North Hills suburbs of Pittsburgh. The Savings Bank converted from the mutual to the stock form of ownership in November 1993. The Savings Bank had no subsidiaries at December 31, 2014.

The operating results of the Company depend primarily upon its net interest income, which is determined by the difference between income on interest-earning assets, principally loans, mortgage-backed securities and investment securities, and interest expense on interest-bearing liabilities, which consist primarily of deposits and borrowings. The Company’s net income is also affected by its provision for loan losses, as well as the level of its non-interest income, including loan fees and service charges, and its non-interest expenses, such as compensation and employee benefits, income taxes, deposit insurance and occupancy costs.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

The Company’s assets totaled $294.7 million at December 31, 2014, as compared to $309.9 million at June 30, 2014. The $15.2 million or 4.9% decrease in total assets was primarily comprised of a $20.7 million decrease in mortgage-backed securities – held to maturity, a $7.0 million decrease in investment securities-available for sale, a $1.3 million decrease in FHLB stock, and a $248 thousand decrease in certificates of deposit, which were partially offset by a $7.1 million increase in investment securities - held to maturity, a $5.9 million increase in net loans receivable, and a $901 thousand increase in cash and cash equivalents. The decrease in mortgage-backed securities – held to maturity was primarily due to repayments on floating rate U.S. Government agency CMOs and floating rate private-label CMOs totaling $32.5 million and $379 thousand, respectively, which were partially offset by purchases of floating-rate U.S. Government agency CMOs totaling $12.0 million. The decrease in investment securities – available for sale was primarily due to maturities and early redemptions of investment-grade corporate bonds totaling $8.3 million, which were partially offset by purchases of investment-grade corporate bonds totaling $1.8 million. The increase in investment securities – held to maturity was primarily due to purchases of U.S. Government agency multiple step-up bonds and obligations of states and political subdivisions totaling $21.4 million and $5.4 million, respectively, which were partially offset by early redemptions of U.S. Government agency multiple step-up bonds and investment-grade corporate bonds totaling $19.4 million and $323 thousand, respectively. The U.S. Government agency bonds purchased were primarily used to offset maturities and early redemptions of investment securities, and repayments of mortgage-backed securities and to bolster interest revenue. See “Asset and Liability Management”.

The Company’s total liabilities decreased $15.3 million or 5.5% to $262.9 million as of December 31, 2014 from $278.2 million as of June 30, 2014. The $15.3 million decrease in total liabilities was primarily comprised of a $21.2 million or 89.8% decrease in FHLB short-term advances, and a $322 thousand or 0.2% decrease in total deposits, which were partially offset by a $6.1 million or 6.2% increase in FHLB long-term variable rate advances. The decreases in FHLB short-term advances were primarily a result of repayments on mortgage-backed securities. The decrease in total deposits was primarily attributable to a decrease in certificates of deposits, money market accounts, and savings accounts totaling $1.8 million, $1.7 million, and $779 thousand, respectively, which were partially offset by increases in non-interest bearing accounts, NOW accounts and advance payments by borrowers for real estate taxes of $2.9 million, $813 thousand, and $233 thousand, respectively. See also “Asset and Liability Management”.

Total stockholders’ equity increased $41 thousand or 0.13% to $31.83 million as of December 31, 2014, from $31.79 million as of June 30, 2014. The increase was primarily attributable to Company net income of $565 thousand, which was partially offset by the purchase of $248 thousand of unallocated ESOP shares, $165 thousand of cash dividends paid on the Company’s common stock, $72 thousand paid for the acquisition of Treasury stock, and the other comprehensive loss of $39 thousand. The other comprehensive loss was primarily attributable to $104 thousand (net of tax effect) of unrealized holding losses on the Company’s available for sale investment portfolio, which was partially offset by a $65 thousand (net of tax effect) reversal of unrealized holding losses on three private-label CMOs with previously identified OTTI.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

General.   WVS reported net income of $266 thousand or $0.13 earnings per share (basic and diluted), and $565 thousand or $0.28 earnings per share (basic and diluted), for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively. Net income increased $33 thousand or 14.2% and earnings per share (basic and diluted) increased $0.02 or 18.2% for the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in net income for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $183 thousand increase in net-interest income, which was partially offset by a $117 thousand increase in provisions for loan losses, and a $30 thousand increase in non-interest expense. For the six months ended December 31, 2014, net income increased $122 thousand or 27.5% and earnings per share (basic and diluted) increased $0.06 or 27.3%, when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in net income for the six months ended December 31, 2014, was primarily attributable to a $355 thousand increase in net interest income, which was partially offset by a $108 thousand increase in provisions for loan losses, an $85 thousand increase in non-interest expense, and a $41 thousand increase in income tax expense.

Net Interest Income.  The Company’s net interest income increased by $183 thousand or 17.1% for the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in net interest income is attributable to a $113 thousand increase in interest income, and a $70 thousand decrease in interest expense. The increase in interest income was primarily due to higher average balances and higher yields earned on the Company’s U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities portfolio, and U.S. Government agency bonds, and higher yields earned on the Company’s Corporate bond portfolio and FHLB stock, which were partially offset by lower average balances and lower yields earned on the Company’s loan portfolio, and lower average balances of the Company’s Corporate bond portfolio, during the quarter ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease in interest expense was primarily attributable to lower average balances of time deposits and FHLB long-term fixed rate and short-term advances during the three months ended December 31, 2014, which were partially offset by higher average balances of FHLB long-term variable rate advances, when compared to the same period in 2013. For the six months ended December 31, 2014, net interest income increased $355 thousand or 17.7% when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in net-interest income was primarily attributable to a $229 thousand increase in interest income, and a $126 thousand decrease in interest expense. The increase in interest income was primarily due to higher average balances and yields earned on the Company’s U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities and U.S. Government agency bonds, and higher yields earned on the Company’s Corporate bond portfolio and FHLB stock for the six months ended December 31, 2014, which were partially offset by lower average balances of corporate bonds and lower average balances and yields earned on the Company’s loan portfolio. The decrease in interest expense was primarily due to lower average balances of FHLB long-term fixed rated advances, FHLB short-term advances, and time deposits, and lower rates paid on FHLB long-term fixed rate advances, which were partially offset by higher average balances of FHLB long-term variable rate advances and higher rates paid on FHLB short-term advances, during the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Interest Income.  Interest income on mortgage-backed securities increased $166 thousand or 28.2% and $487 thousand or 45.9% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The increase for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $29.5 million increase in the average balance of U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities outstanding, a 13 basis point increase in the weighted average yield earned on

U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities, and a 2 basis point increase in the weighted average yield earned on private-label mortgage-backed securities, which were partially offset by a $558 thousand decrease in the average balance of private-label mortgage-backed securities outstanding, for the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $146.3 million increase in the average balance of U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities outstanding, a 19 basis point increase in the weighted average yield earned on U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities, which were partially offset by a $718 thousand decrease in the average balance of private-label mortgage-backed securities outstanding for the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease in the average balances of private-label mortgage-backed securities during the three and six months ended December 31, 2014 was attributable to principal paydowns of private-label mortgage-backed securities during the periods. The increase in the average balance of U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, was primarily attributable to purchases of U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities totaling $5.9 million and $21.4 million, respectively, during the three and six months, which was partially offset by repayments of $19.0 million and $32.5 million, respectively, on the U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities portfolio, during the three and six months ended December 31, 2014. The mortgage-backed securities purchased during both periods were primarily used to offset maturities and early calls of securities within the investment portfolio and to bolster interest revenue.

Interest income on FHLB stock increased $44 thousand or 209.5%, and $85 thousand or 242.9% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The increase in dividends on FHLB stock for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was attributable to a 263 basis point increase in the yield earned on FHLB stock, and a $1.1 million increase in the average balance of FHLB stock held during the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in dividends on FHLB stock for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was attributable to a 252 basis point increase in the yield earned on FHLB stock, and a $969 thousand increase in the average balance of FHLB stock held during the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Interest income on investment securities decreased $61 thousand or 15.4% and $264 thousand or 29.5% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decrease for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $20.0 million decrease in the average balance of investment securities outstanding, which was partially offset by a 25 basis point increase in the weighted average yield on investment securities, when compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $28.9 million decrease in the average balance of investment securities outstanding, which was partially offset by an 11 basis point increase in the weighted average yield on investment securities, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Interest income on net loans receivable decreased $35 thousand or 8.4% and $77 thousand or 9.3% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decrease for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $1.1 million decrease in the average balance of net loans receivable outstanding, and a decrease of 26 basis points in the weighted average yield earned on net loans receivable for the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease in the average balance of loans outstanding was primarily attributable to lower construction loans outstanding, payoffs on non-accrual loans, and repayments on performing loans in excess of originations. The decrease in the yield on loans was primarily attributable to payoffs of higher yielding construction loans. The decrease for the six months ended December 31, 2014, was primarily attributable to a $2.3 million decrease in the average balance of net loans receivable outstanding, and a 13 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield earned on net loans receivable for the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Interest income on FDIC insured bank certificates of deposit decreased $1 thousand or 33.3% and $1 thousand or 20.0% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decrease for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was primarily attributable to a $248 thousand decrease in the average portfolio balance of certificates of deposit, when

compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $198 thousand decrease in the average portfolio balance of certificates of deposit, which was partially offset by a 33 basis point increase in the weighted average yield earned on certificates of deposit, when compared to the same period in 2013. The certificates have remaining maturities ranging from nine to one hundred months. Due to decreases in market yields in this investment sector, the Company has decided to limit reinvestments in certificates of deposit and to redeploy maturities and early issuer redemptions to other investment portfolio segments.

Interest Expense.    Interest paid on FHLB short-term advances decreased $40 thousand or 72.7% and $77 thousand or 11.0% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decrease for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $64.5 million decrease in the average balance of FHLB short-term advances outstanding, which was partially offset by a 3 basis point increase in the weighted average rate paid on FHLB short-term advances, for the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease for the six months ended December 31, 2014, was primarily attributable to a $68.0 million decrease in the average balance of short-term FHLB advances, which was partially offset by a 6 basis point increase in the weighted average rate paid on FHLB short-term advances, for the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Interest paid on FHLB fixed-rate long term advances decreased by $69 thousand and $138 thousand, respectively, for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014 when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decrease in interest expense on FHLB fixed-rate long term advances for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $5.0 million decrease in the average balance of such advances and a 28 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid when compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease in interest expense on FHLB fixed-rate long term advances for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $5.0 million decrease in the average balance of such advances and a 28 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid when compared to the same period in 2013.

Interest paid on FHLB variable-rate long term advances increased by $73 thousand and $143 thousand, respectively, for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014 when compared to the same periods in 2013. The increase in interest expense on FHLB variable-rate long term advances for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $105.3 million increase in the average balance of such advances and a 28 basis point increase in the weighted average rate paid when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in interest expense on FHLB variable-rate long term advances for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $105.3 million increase in the average balance of such advances and a 28 basis point increase in the weighted average rate paid when compared to the same period in 2013. The Company utilized this funding source in both periods to pay down FHLB short-term advances and to lock in longer-term variable rate funding for its variable rate mortgage-backed securities.

Interest expense on deposits and escrows decreased $34 thousand or 38.2% and $54 thousand or 32.1% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decrease in interest expense on deposits for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $28.6 million decrease in the average balance of time deposits, and a 2 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid on savings accounts, which were partially offset by a 3 basis point increase in the weighted average rate paid on time deposits for the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease in interest expense on deposits for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $17.0 million decrease in the average balance of time deposits, a 3 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid on savings accounts, and a 2 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid on time deposits, which were partially offset by a $1.9 million increase in the average balance of savings deposits for the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Provision for Loan Losses.    A provision for loan losses is charged to earnings (while credit provision for loan losses are accretive to earnings) to maintain the total allowance at a level considered adequate by management to absorb potential losses in the portfolio. Management’s determination of the adequacy of the allowance is based on an evaluation of the portfolio considering past experience, current economic conditions, volume, growth and composition of the loan portfolio, and other relevant factors.

Table of Contents

Provisions for loan losses increased $117 thousand and $108 thousand for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The increase in the provision for loan losses for the three months ended December 31, 2014, was primarily attributable to an increase in the Company’s loan portfolio during the three months ended December 31, 2014, and the absence of a $109 thousand credit provision on a paid off non-performing loan which was recorded in the three months ended December 31, 2013. The increase in the provision for loan losses for the six months ended December 31, 2014, was primarily attributable to an increase in the Company’s loan portfolio during the six months ended December 31, 2014, and the absence of a $109 credit provision on a paid off non-performing loan which was recorded in the six months ended December 31, 2013. At December 31, 2014, the Company’s total allowance for loan losses amounted to $255 thousand or 0.7% of the Company’s total loan portfolio, as compared to $234 thousand or 0.8% at June 30, 2014. At December 31, 2014, the Company’s non-performing loans totaled $463 thousand as compared to $604 thousand at June 30, 2014.

Non-Interest Income.  Non-interest income decreased by $1 thousand or 0.7%, and increased by $1 thousand or 0.4% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decrease for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $6 thousand decrease in service charges on deposits, and a $1 thousand decrease in earnings on bank-owned life insurance, which were partially offset by a $13 thousand increase in ATM and debit card fee income for the three months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to an $8 thousand increase in earnings on bank-owned life insurance, a $10 thousand increase in ATM and debit card fee income, which were partially offset by a $16 thousand decrease in service charges on deposits during the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Non-Interest Expense.  Non-interest expense increased $30 thousand or 3.1% and $85 thousand or 4.7% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The increase for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was principally attributable to a $36 thousand increase in ATM and debit card related expenses, and a $17 thousand increase in employee related expenses, which were partially offset by a $17 thousand decrease in occupancy and equipment costs, when compared to the same period in 2013. The increase for the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to a $39 thousand increase in employee related expenses, a $3 thousand increase in ATM and debit card related expenses, and a $14 thousand increase in provisions for losses on off-balance sheet (loan origination) commitments, which were partially offset by a $13 thousand decrease in occupancy and equipment costs, during the six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same period in 2013.

Income Tax Expense.  Income tax expense increased $2 thousand and $41 thousand for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2013. The decreases for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014 were primarily due to increased levels of taxable income, during the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, when compared to the same periods in 2014.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $825 thousand during the six months ended December 31, 2014.

The primary uses included a $21.2 million decrease in FHLB short-term advances, a $1.8 million decrease in certificates of deposit, $248 thousand in purchases of unallocated ESOP shares, $165 thousand in cash dividends paid on the Company’s common stock, and $72 thousand in purchases of treasury stock, which were partially offset by a $6.1 million increase in FHLB long-term variable rate advances, a $1.3 million increase in transaction and savings accounts, and a $125 thousand increase in escrow accounts. Management believes that a significant portion of our local maturing deposits will remain with the Company.

The Company’s primary sources of funds are deposits, amortization, repayments and maturities of existing loans, mortgage-backed securities and investment securities, funds from operations, and funds obtained through FHLB advances and other borrowings. Certificates of deposit scheduled to mature in one year or less at December 31, 2014 totaled $24.1 million.

Historically, the Company used its sources of funds primarily to meet its ongoing commitments to pay maturing savings certificates and savings withdrawals, fund loan commitments and maintain a substantial portfolio of investment securities. At December 31, 2014, total approved loan commitments outstanding were $2.1 million. At the same date, commitments under unused lines of credit amounted to $6.2 million and the unadvanced portion of construction loans approximated $5.7 million. The Company has been able to generate sufficient cash through the retail deposit market, its traditional funding source, and through FHLB advances, and other borrowings, to provide the cash utilized in investing activities. The Company’s available for sale segment of the investment portfolio totaled $21.4 million at December 31, 2014. Management believes that the Company currently has adequate liquidity available to respond to liquidity demands.

On January 27, 2015, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.04 per share payable February 19, 2015, to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 9, 2015. Dividends are subject to determination and declaration by the Board of Directors, which take into account the Company’s financial condition, statutory and regulatory restrictions, general economic conditions and other factors. There can be no assurance that dividends will in fact be paid on the Common Stock in future periods or that, if paid, such dividends will not be reduced or eliminated.

As of December 31, 2014, WVS Financial Corp. exceeded all regulatory capital requirements and maintained Tier I and total risk-based capital equal to $32.3 million or 31.2% and $32.6 million or 31.5% respectively, of total risk-weighted assets, and Tier I leverage capital of $32.3 million or 10.4 % of average quarterly assets.

Nonperforming assets consist of nonaccrual loans and real estate owned. A loan is placed on nonaccrual status when, in the judgment of management, the probability of collection of interest is deemed insufficient to warrant further accrual. When a loan is placed on nonaccrual status, previously accrued but uncollected interest is deducted from interest income. The Company normally does not accrue interest on loans past due 90 days or more, however, interest may be accrued if management believes that it will collect on the loan.

The Company’s nonperforming assets at December 31, 2014 totaled $463 thousand or 0.2% of total assets as compared to $607 thousand or 0.2% of total assets at June 30, 2014. Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2014 consisted of: one single-family real estate loan totaling $264 thousand, one home equity line of credit totaling $150 thousand, and one commercial real estate loan totaling $49 thousand. The loans are in various stages of collection activity.

The $144 thousand decrease in nonperforming assets during the six months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily attributable to the transfer to real estate owned and subsequent sale of one non-accrual single-family construction loan totaling $139 thousand, and principal repayments on one non-accrual single-family real estate loan totaling $5 thousand.

During the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, the Company collected $5 thousand and $14 thousand, (respectively), of interest income on non-accrual loans. Approximately $7 thousand and $47 thousand of interest income would have been recorded during the three and six months ended December 31, 2014, on non-accrual loans if such loans had been current according to the original loan agreements for the entire periods. These amounts were not included in the Company’s interest income for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014. The Company continues to work with the borrowers in an attempt to cure the defaults and is also pursuing various legal avenues in order to collect on these loans.

ITEM 3.

QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

ASSET AND LIABILITY MANAGEMENT

The Company’s primary market risk exposure is interest rate risk and, to a lesser extent, liquidity risk. All of the Company’s transactions are denominated in US dollars with no specific foreign exchange exposure. The Savings Bank has no agricultural loan assets and therefore would not have a specific exposure to changes in commodity prices. Any impacts that changes in foreign exchange rates and commodity prices would have on interest rates are assumed to be exogenous and will be analyzed on an ex post basis.

Interest rate risk (“IRR”) is the exposure of a banking organization’s financial condition to adverse movements in interest rates. Accepting this risk can be an important source of profitability and shareholder value, however excessive levels of IRR can pose a significant threat to the Company’s earnings and capital base. Accordingly, effective risk management that maintains IRR at prudent levels is essential to the Company’s safety and soundness.

Evaluating a financial institution’s exposure to changes in interest rates includes assessing both the adequacy of the management process used to control IRR and the organization’s quantitative level of exposure. When assessing the IRR management process, the Company seeks to ensure that appropriate policies, procedures, management information systems and internal controls are in place to maintain IRR at prudent levels with consistency and continuity. Evaluating the quantitative level of IRR exposure requires the Company to assess the existing and potential future effects of changes in interest rates on its consolidated financial condition, including capital adequacy, earnings, liquidity, and, where appropriate, asset quality.

The Federal Open Market Committee (“Committee” or “FOMC”) issued a press release on October 29, 2014 which announced the Committee’s current assessments of the U.S. economy and the FOMC’s decision to conclude its Asset Purchase Program (“Program”). The Program included purchases of U.S. Government bonds and U.S. Government Agency mortgage-backed securities. The Committee further decided to maintain its present policy of reinvesting principal payments from its securities holdings and to rollover maturing U.S. Treasury securities at auction. The FOMC believes that the policy of keeping its holdings of longer-term securities at sizeable levels should help maintain accommodative financial conditions.

The Committee further stated that it will likely be appropriate to maintain the 0 to  14 percent target range for the federal funds rate for a considerable time following the end of its Asset Purchase Program – especially if projected inflation continues to run below the Committee’s 2 percent longer-run goal and provided that the longer-term inflation expectations remain well anchored.

During the six months ended December 31, 2014, the Company continued to adjust its asset/liability management tactics. We increased our FHLB long-term variable rate advance balances to $105.3 million at December 31, 2014 as compared to $99.2 million at June 30, 2014. $100.3 million of the FHLB long-term variable rate advances float on a monthly basis based upon the one-month LIBOR, while $5.0 million of the FHLB long-term variable rate advances float on a quarterly basis based upon the three-month LIBOR. The Company believes that these FHLB long-term variable rate advances complement our holdings of floating rate MBS and provide an attractive funding spread.

Financial institutions derive their income primarily from the excess of interest collected over interest paid. The rates of interest an institution earns on its assets and owes on its liabilities generally are established contractually for a period of time. Since market interest rates change over time, an institution is exposed to lower profit margins (or losses) if it cannot adapt to interest-rate changes. For example, assume that an institution’s assets carry intermediate- or long-term fixed rates and that those assets were funded with short-term liabilities. If market interest rates rise by the time the short-term liabilities must be refinanced,

the increase in the institution’s interest expense on its liabilities may not be sufficiently offset if assets continue to earn at the long-term fixed rates. Accordingly, an institution’s profits could decrease on existing assets because the institution will either have lower net interest income or, possibly, net interest expense. Similar risks exist when assets are subject to contractual interest-rate ceilings, or rate sensitive assets are funded by longer-term, fixed-rate liabilities in a decreasing-rate environment.

During the fiscal years 2013, 2014 and into fiscal year 2015, intermediate and long-term market interest rates fluctuated considerably. Many central banks, including the Federal Reserve, continued above normal levels of monetary accommodation including quantitative easing and targeted asset purchase programs. The desired outcomes of these programs are to stimulate aggregate demand, reduce high levels of unemployment and to further lower market interest rates.

The table below shows the targeted federal funds rate and the benchmark two and ten year treasury yields at quarter ends beginning in June 30, 2007, and extending through December 31, 2014. The difference in yields on the two year and ten year Treasury’s is often used to determine the steepness of the yield curve and to assess the term premium of market interest rates.
