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, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the entire fiscal year.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains and increased unemployment levels. The resulting temporary closure of many businesses and the implementation of social distancing and sheltering-in-place policies has and may continue to impact many of the Company’s customers. While the full effects of the pandemic remain unknown, the Company is committed to supporting its customers, employees and communities during this difficult time. The Company has given hardship relief assistance to customers, including the consideration of various loan payment deferral and fee waiver options, and encourages customers to reach out for assistance to support their individual circumstances. The pandemic could result in the recognition of credit losses in our loan portfolios and increases in our allowance for credit losses, particularly if businesses remain closed, the impact on the global economy worsens, or more customers draw on their lines of credit or seek additional loans to help finance their businesses. Similarly, because of changing economic and market conditions affecting issuers, we may be required to recognize impairments on the securities we hold. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business, results of operations, and financial condition, as well as our regulatory capital and liquidity ratios, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic.

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed by the President of the United States. Certain provisions within the CARES Act encourage financial institutions to practice prudent efforts to work with borrowers impacted by COVID-19. Under these provisions, loan modifications deemed to be COVID-19 related would not be considered a troubled debt restructuring (TDR) if the loan was not more than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019 and the deferral was executed between March 1, 2020 and the earlier of 60 days after the date of termination of the COVID-19 national emergency or December 31, 2020. The banking regulators issued similar guidance, which also clarified that a COVID-19-related modification should not be considered a TDR if the borrower was current on payments at the time the underlying loan modification program was implemented and if the modification is considered to be short-term. As of December 31, 2020, the number of loans in deferral totaled 14 with an aggregate balance of $5.3 million and an aggregate appraised value of $8.9 million. Effective July 1, 2020 these loans were given a twelve month catch-up period to repay any previously due deferred amounts. As of December 31, 2020 all of these loans were current with the terms of their deferral agreements.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”), which changes the impairment model for most financial assets. This ASU is intended to improve financial reporting by requiring timelier recording of credit losses on loans and other financial instruments held by financial institutions and other organizations. The underlying premise of the ASU is that financial assets measured at amortized cost should be presented at the net amount expected to be collected, through an allowance for credit losses that is deducted from the amortized cost basis. The allowance for credit

Table of Contents

losses should reflect management’s current estimate of credit losses that are expected to occur over the remaining life of a financial asset. The income statement will be effected for the measurement of credit losses for newly recognized financial assets, as well as the expected increases or decreases of expected credit losses that have taken place during the period. ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and early adoption is permitted for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018. With certain exceptions, transition to the new requirements will be through a cumulative effect adjustment to opening retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is adopted. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842). This Update defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for SEC filers that are eligible to be smaller reporting companies, non-SEC filers, and all other companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We expect to recognize a one-time cumulative effect adjustment to the allowance for loan losses as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the new standard is effective, but cannot yet determine the magnitude of any such one-time adjustment or the overall impact of the new guidance on the consolidated financial statements.

In November, 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-19, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, which amended the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for entities other than public business entities (PBEs), by requiring non-PBEs to adopt the standard for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Therefore, the revised effective dates of ASU 2016-13 for PBEs that are SEC filers will be fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those years, PBEs other than SEC filers will be for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those years, and all other entities (non-PBEs) will be for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those years. The ASU also clarifies that receivables arising from operating leases are not within the scope of Subtopic 326-20. Rather, impairment of receivables arising from operating leases should be accounted for in accordance with Topic 842, Leases. The effective date and transition requirements for ASU 2018-19 are the same as those in ASU 2016-13, as amended by ASU 2018-19. On October 16, 2019, the FASB voted to defer the effective date for ASC 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, for smaller reporting companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, and interim periods within those fiscal years. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In April 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-04, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and Topic 825, Financial Instruments, which affects a variety of topics in the Codification and applies to all reporting entities within the scope of the affected accounting guidance. Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses amendments are effective for SEC registrants for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other public business entities, the effective date is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and for all other entities, the effective date is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. On October 16, 2019, the FASB voted to defer the effective date for ASC 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, for smaller reporting companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The final ASU is expected to be issued in mid-November. Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2020. For entities that have adopted the amendments in Update 2017-12, the effective date is as of the beginning of the first annual period beginning after the issuance of this Update. Topic 825, Financial Instruments amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of the standard will have on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

Table of Contents

In May 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-05, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, Topic 326, which allows entities to irrevocably elect the fair value option for certain financial assets previously measured at amortized cost upon adoption of the new credit losses standard. To be eligible for the transition election, the existing financial asset must otherwise be both within the scope of the new credit losses standard and eligible for applying the fair value option in ASC 825-10.3. The election must be applied on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is not available for either available-for-sale or held-to-maturity debt securities. For entities that elect the fair value option, the difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of the financial asset would be recognized through a cumulative-effect adjustment to opening retained earnings as of the date an entity adopted ASU 2016-13. Changes in fair value of that financial asset would subsequently be reported in current earnings. For entities that have not yet adopted ASU 2016-13, the effective dates and transition requirements are the same as those in ASU 2016-13. For entities that have adopted ASU 2016-13, ASU 2019-05 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted once ASU 2016-13 has been adopted. On October 16, 2019, the FASB voted to defer the effective date for ASC 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, for smaller reporting companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, and interim periods within those fiscal years. 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 November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-08, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) and Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which requires entities to measure and classify share-based payments to a customer, in accordance with the guidance in ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. The amendments in that Update expanded the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees and, in doing so, superseded guidance in Subtopic 505-50, Equity – Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. The amount that would be recorded as a reduction in revenue would be measured based on the grant date fair value of the share-based payment, in accordance with Topic 718. The grant date is the date at which a supplier and customer reach a mutual understanding of the award’s key terms and conditions. The award’s classification and subsequent measurement would be subject to ASC 718 unless the award is modified or the grantee is no longer a customer. For entities that have not yet adopted the amendments in Update 2018-07, the amendments in this Update are effective for (1) public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years, and (2) other than public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. For entities that have adopted the amendments in Update 2018-07, the amendments in this Update are effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. An entity may early adopt the amendments in this Update, but not before it adopts the amendments in Update 2018-07. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842). The Update defers the effective dates of ASU 2016-13 for SEC filers that are eligible to be smaller reporting companies, non-SEC filers, and all other companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. This Update also amends the mandatory effective date for the elimination of Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test under ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment (Goodwill), to align with those used for credit losses. Furthermore, the ASU provides a one-year deferral of the effective dates of the ASUs on derivatives and hedging and leases for companies that are not public business entities. The Company qualifies as a smaller reporting company and does not expect to early adopt these ASUs.

In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-11, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, to clarify its new credit impairment guidance in ASC 326, based on implementation issues raised by stakeholders. This Update clarified, among other things, that expected recoveries are to be included in the allowance for credit losses for these financial assets; an accounting policy election can be made to adjust the effective interest rate for existing troubled debt restructurings based on the prepayment assumptions instead of the prepayment assumptions applicable immediately prior to the restructuring event; and extends the practical expedient to exclude accrued interest receivable from all additional relevant disclosures involving amortized cost basis. The effective dates in this Update are the same as those applicable for ASU 2019-10. The Company qualifies as a smaller reporting company and does not expect to early adopt these ASUs.

Table of Contents

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740), to simplify the accounting for income taxes, change the accounting for certain tax transactions, and make minor improvements to the codification. This Update provides a policy election to not allocate consolidated income taxes when a member of a consolidated tax return is not subject to income tax and provides guidance to evaluate whether a step-up in tax basis of goodwill relates to a business combination in which book goodwill was recognized or a separate transaction. The Update also changes current guidance for making an intra-period allocation, if there is a loss in continuing operations and gains outside of continuing operations; determining when a deferred tax liability is recognized after an investor in a foreign entity transitions to or from the equity method of accounting; accounting for tax law changes and year-to-date losses in interim periods; and determining how to apply the income tax guidance to franchise taxes that are partially based on income. For public business entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. 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 March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-03, Codification Improvements to Financial Instruments. This ASU was issued to improve and clarify various financial instruments topics, including the current expected credit losses (CECL) standard issued in 2016. The ASU includes seven issues that describe the areas of improvement and the related amendments to GAAP; they are intended to make the standards easier to understand and apply and to eliminate inconsistencies, and they are narrow in scope and are not expected to significantly change practice for most entities. Among its provisions, the ASU clarifies that all entities, other than public business entities that elected the fair value option, are required to provide certain fair value disclosures under ASC 825, Financial Instruments, in both interim and annual financial statements. It also clarifies that the contractual term of a net investment in a lease under Topic 842 should be the contractual term used to measure expected credit losses under Topic 326. Amendments related to ASU 2019-04 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is not permitted before an entity’s adoption of ASU 2016-01. Amendments related to ASU 2016-13 for entities that have not yet adopted that guidance are effective upon adoption of the amendments in ASU 2016-13. Early adoption is not permitted before an entity’s adoption of ASU 2016-13. Amendments related to ASU 2016-13 for entities that have adopted that guidance are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those years. Other amendments are effective upon issuance of this ASU. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, March 2020, to provide temporary optional expedients and exceptions to the U.S. GAAP guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to ease the financial reporting burdens of the expected market transition from LIBOR and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates, such as Secured Overnight Financing Rate. Entities can elect not to apply certain modification accounting requirements to contracts affected by what the guidance calls reference rate reform, if certain criteria are met. An entity that makes this election would not have to remeasure the contracts at the modification date or reassess a previous accounting determination. Also, entities can elect various optional expedients that would allow them to continue applying hedge accounting for hedging relationships affected by reference rate reform, if certain criteria are met, and can make a one-time election to sell and/or reclassify held-to-maturity debt securities that reference an interest rate affected by reference rate reform. The amendments in this ASU are effective for all entities upon issuance through December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of the standard will have on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

REVENUE RECOGNITION

Management determined that the primary sources of revenue emanating from interest and dividend income on loans and investments along with noninterest revenue resulting from investment security gains, and earnings on bank owned life insurances are not within the scope of ASC 606. As a result, no changes were made during the period related to these sources of revenue. The main types of noninterest income within the scope of the standard are as follows: Service Charges on deposit accounts—the Company has contracts with its deposit customers where fees are charged if certain parameters are not met. These agreements can be cancelled at any time by either the Company or the deposit customer. Revenue from these transactions is recognized on a monthly basis as the Company has an unconditional right to the fee consideration. The Company also has transaction fees related to specific transactions or activities resulting from a customer request or activity that include overdraft fees, online banking fees, interchange fees, ATM fees and other transaction fees. All of these fees are attributable to specific performance obligations of the Company where the revenue is recognized at a defined point in time upon the completion of the requested service/transaction.

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 tranches) 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, 2020, the Company’s Agency CMOs totaled $57.9 million as compared to $96.5 million at June 30, 2020. The Company’s private-label CMOs totaled $501 thousand at December 31, 2020 as compared to $618 thousand at June 30, 2020. The $38.7 million decrease in the CMO portfolio was primarily due to repayments on our Agency and private-label CMOs which totaled $38.6 million and $112 thousand, respectively. At December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020, all of the Company’s MBS portfolio, including CMOs, were comprised of adjustable or floating rate investments. All of the Company’s floating rate MBS adjust monthly based upon changes in the one month London Interbank Offered Rate (“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 tranches, the actual maturities of the Company’s MBS are expected to be substantially less than the scheduled maturities.

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 Company recorded no additional credit impairment charges on its private-label CMO portfolio during the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

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, 2020. 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 MBSs, 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 months ended December 31, 2020, the Company recorded no subsequent credit impairment charges. During the six months ended December 31, 2020, the Company recorded subsequent credit impairment charges of $13 thousand. No non-credit unrealized holding losses to accumulated other comprehensive income were recorded during these same periods. During the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, the Company accreted back into other comprehensive income $4 thousand and $9 thousand, respectively (net of income tax effect of $1 thousand and $3 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.

Table of Contents

In conjunction with our adoption of ASC Topic 820, 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.

The Company reviewed the independent third party’s assumptions used in the December 31, 2020 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. The Company had three private-label CMOs with OTTI at December 31, 2020.

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 25 positions that were impaired at December 31, 2020. 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 Company collectively evaluates for impairment 1-4 family first mortgage loans and all consumer loans. 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.

As of December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020 there were no loans considered to be impaired and no nonaccrual loans. During the six months ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s one non-performing asset consisting of a single-family real estate loan was discharged from bankruptcy and has been current since that time.

The Company’s loan portfolio may also include 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.

During the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, there were no TDRs. See Covid-19 disclosures in NOTE 1 BASIS OF PRESENTATION.

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.

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, 2020, is adequate.

Credit quality information

The following tables represent credit exposure by internally assigned grades for the period ended December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020. 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 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, 2020.

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.

During the three and six months ending December 31, 2020, the ALLL decreased $8 thousand and $7 thousand, respectively. For the three months ended December 31, 2020, the ALLL associated with 1 - 4 family real estate loans decreased $9 thousand and the ALLL associated with consumer loans increased $6 thousand. In addition, the ALLL associated with the construction and commercial segments decreased by $2 thousand each during the three months ended December 31, 2020. During the six months ended December 31, 2020, the ALLL associated with 1 - 4 family real estate loans, construction loans and commercial loans decreased by $3 thousand, $4 thousand and $4 thousand, respectively. The primary reason for the changes in the ALLL balances, both in total, and within the identified segments, is changes in applicable loan balances.

During the three months and six months ended December 31, 2019, the ALLL decreased $8 thousand and $18 thousand, respectively. For the three months ended December 31, 2019, the ALLL associated with the 1-4 family real estate loan portfolio decreased $14 thousand and was partially offset by an $8 thousand increase in the ALLL associated with construction loans. During the six months ended December 31, 2019, the ALLL associated with 1 - 4 family real estate loans, construction and land acquisition and development loans decreased by $7 thousand, $9 thousand and $6 thousand, respectively. The primary reason for the changes in the ALLL balances, both in total, and within the identified segments, is changes in applicable loan balances and the return of one non-performing loan to performing status.

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, 2020 and June 30, 2020, 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.

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, 2020.

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.

Effects of COVID-19 Pandemic

The Company’s business is dependent upon the willingness and ability of our employees and clients to conduct banking and other financial transactions. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains and increased unemployment levels. While the full effects of the pandemic remain unknown, the Company is committed to supporting its customers, employees and communities during this difficult time. The Company has given hardship relief assistance to customers, including the consideration of various loan payment deferral and fee waiver options, and encourages customers to reach out for assistance to support their individual circumstances. The pandemic could result in the recognition of credit losses in our loan portfolios and increases in our allowance for credit losses, particularly if businesses remain closed, the impact on the global economy worsens, or more customers draw on their lines of credit or seek additional loans to help finance their businesses. Similarly, because of changing economic and market conditions affecting issuers, we may be required to recognize impairments on the securities we hold. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business, results of operations, and financial condition, as well as our regulatory capital and liquidity ratios, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic.

The Company has responded to the circumstances surrounding the pandemic to support the safety and well-being of the employees, customers and shareholders by enacting the following measures:

 

   

Modified branch business hours Monday through Thursday to close at 4:00 pm (no change), Friday close at 4:00 pm (as opposed to 6:00 pm), and Saturday close at 12:00 pm (no change).

 

   

Monitor federal, state and local COVID-19 websites and adopt guidance as appropriate and feasible.

 

   

Encourage customers to use our various on-line portals (e.g. internet banking, online bill pay service), automated teller machines and night depositories to redirect routine transactions away from our branch staff as much as possible.

 

   

Non-branch banking services (e.g. lending, accounting, check and electronic processing) continue to be offered consistent with COVID-19 guidelines.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

The Company’s assets totaled $317.4 million at December 31, 2020, as compared to $357.1 million at June 30, 2020. The $39.7 million or 11.1% decrease in total assets was principally due to a $38.7 million decrease in mortgage-backed securities, a $1.3 million decrease in Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) stock and a $933 thousand decrease in certificates of deposits, partially offset by a $2.2 million increase in investment securities available-for-sale and a $788 thousand increase in cash and cash equivalents. The decrease in mortgage-backed securities was principally due to repayments of principal totaling $38.7 million and the decrease in FHLB stock is associated with changes in the levels of the Company’s FHLB advances outstanding. The decrease in certificates of deposit was a function of the Company’s liquidity needs and the relatively higher market rates offered on other investments. The increase in securities available-for-sale was primarily the result of purchases of investment-grade corporate bonds and commercial paper, partially offset by securities sales of $3.0 million and $31.8 million of maturities and calls. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily attributable to higher holdings of vault cash to cover possible customer withdrawals due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Company’s total liabilities decreased $41.2 million or 12.9% to $279.0 million as of December 31, 2020 from $320.2 million as of June 30, 2020. The decrease in total liabilities was primarily comprised of a $65.0 million or 65.0% decrease in FHLB long-term advances, which was partially offset by a $33.5 million increase in FHLB short-term advances. Certificates of deposit (“CDs”) decreased by $5.4 million while transaction and savings accounts increased by $3.0 million as of December 31, 2020 from June 30, 2020. Management believes that the increase in checking and savings accounts is partially due to COVID-19 stimulus payments. The decrease in certificates of deposit was largely due to the repayment of $3.7 million of wholesale time deposits as part of the Company’s overall funding strategy. See also Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk “Asset and Liability Management”.

Total stockholders’ equity increased $1.5 million or 4.1% to $38.4 million as of December 31, 2020, from $36.9 million as of June 30, 2020. The increase in stockholders’ equity was primarily attributable to net income of $775 thousand and an increase in accumulated other comprehensive income of $1.1 million, which was partially offset by cash dividends paid totaling $349 thousand and the purchase of $52 thousand of Treasury shares. The increase in accumulated other comprehensive income was primarily the result of an unrealized gain on the Company’s available-for-sale investment portfolio.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

General. WVS Financial Corp. reported net income of $355 thousand or $0.20 per share (diluted and basic) for the three months ended December 31, 2020 as compared to $727 thousand or $0.41 per share for the same period in 2019. The $372 thousand or 51.2% decrease in net income during the three months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to a $418 thousand decrease in net interest income, a decrease in non-interest income of $19 thousand and an increase in non-interest expense of $6 thousand; which were partially offset by a $71 thousand decrease in income tax expense, when compared to the same period of 2019.

Net income for the six months ended December 31, 2020 totaled $775 thousand or $0.44 per share (diluted and basic) as compared to $1.5 million or $0.86 per diluted share for the same period in 2019. The $745 thousand or 49.0% decrease in net income during the six months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to an $882 thousand decrease in net interest income, an $18 thousand decrease in non-interest income and a $39 thousand increase in non-interest expense, partially offset by a $205 decline in income tax expense, when compared to the same period in 2019.

Net Interest Income. The Company’s net interest income decreased by $418 thousand or 25.2% for the three months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in net interest income during the three months ended December 31, 2020 was attributable to a $1.3 million decrease in interest income, partially offset by an $894 thousand decrease in interest expense for the three months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in interest

Table of Contents

income for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to lower market yields earned on the Company’s floating rate investment and mortgage-backed securities portfolio and lower average balances of mortgage-backed securities outstanding when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in interest expense for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to lower market rates paid on FHLB short-term and variable rate long-term borrowings and lower average balances of FHLB long-term borrowings. Also contributing to the decrease in interest expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the same quarter of the 2019, were lower rates paid on time deposits as well as lower average balances of wholesale time deposits.

For the six months ended December 31, 2020, net interest income decreased $882 thousand or 25.5% when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in net interest income was primarily attributable to a $2.6 million decrease in interest income, which was partially offset by a $1.8 million decline in interest expense for the six months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in interest income was primarily the result of lower average yields on the Company’s floating rate investment and mortgage-backed securities, and lower outstanding balances of floating rate mortgage-backed securities, partially offset by higher average outstanding balances of loans and investment securities, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in interest expense for the six months ended was primarily attributable to lower market rates paid on FHLB short-term advances, FHLB variable rate long-term advances and wholesale time deposits. In addition, average balances outstanding of both short-term and long-term FHLB advances as well as wholesale time deposits decreased during the six months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period of 2019.

Interest Income. Interest income on net loans receivable decreased $65 thousand or 7.5% and $84 thousand or 4.8% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2019. The decrease for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to lower average yields of 27 and 22 basis points, respectively, in the average balance of net loans receivable when compared to the same periods in 2019. For the six months ended December 31, 2020, the increase in the average balance of loans outstanding was $690 thousand and this volume increase over the same period of 2019 partially offset the lower market yields. The average volume balance of net loans receivable outstanding during the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2020 decreased by $293 thousand and this small decrease had minimal impact on interest income.

Interest income on investment securities decreased $599 thousand or 60.1% and $1.2 million or 59.8% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2019. The decrease for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to a 180 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield on investment securities, partially offset by a $9.9 million increase in the average balance of investment securities outstanding, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease for the six months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to a decrease in the weighted average yield of 187 basis points, partially offset by a $9.4 million increase in the average balance of investment securities outstanding, when compared to the same period in 2019. The increase in the average balance of investments outstanding during both periods is attributable to the redeployment of a portion of mortgage-backed securities cash flows into corporate bonds and commercial paper. The decrease in weighted average yields in 2020 was principally attributable to lower three-month dollar London Interbank Offered Rates (“LIBOR”) when compared to the same periods in 2019.

Interest income on mortgage-backed securities decreased $553 thousand or 73.0% and $1.2 million or 71.2% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2019. The decrease for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to the $36.4 million decrease in the average balance of U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities and a 168 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield earned on these securities. The decrease for the six months ended December 31, 2020 was also primarily attributable to $26.8 million decline in the average balance of U.S. Government agency mortgage-backed securities and a 189 basis point decrease in the weighted average yield earned on these mortgage-backed securities, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in the average balances of U.S. Government and agency private-label mortgage-backed securities during the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 was attributable to principal pay downs during the periods. The mortgage-backed securities proceeds during both periods were primarily used to fund purchases of floating rate corporate bonds in the investment portfolio and loan originations and purchases. The decrease in weighted average yields in 2020 was primarily attributable to lower one-month LIBOR when compared to the same periods in 2019.

Dividend income on FHLB stock decreased $83 thousand or 63.9% and $116 thousand or 46.0% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2019. The change in dividends on FHLB stock for both the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to lower average balances of FHLB stock held of $3.7 million and $2.1 million, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2019.

Interest income on bank certificates of deposit decreased $11 thousand and $20 thousand for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decreases in both periods of 2020 were primarily attributable to decreases in the average portfolio balances of certificates of deposit of approximately $1.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 and $1.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same periods of the prior year.

Interest Expense. Interest paid on FHLB variable-rate long-term advances and FHLB short-term advances decreased by $433 thousand and $283 thousand, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019. For the three months ended December 31, 2020, the decrease in interest expense on the FHLB variable-rate long-term advances was principally due a $60 million decrease in the average balance of advances outstanding, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in interest expense on FHLB short-term advances for the three months ended December 31, 2020 reflects $32.2 million decrease in the average balance of FHLB short-term advances outstanding and a reduction in market interest rates of 163 basis points, when compared to the same period in 2019.

For the six months ended December 31, 2020, interest expense on both FHLB long-term variable and FHLB short-term advances decreased by $875 thousand or 90.5% and $553 thousand or 90.2%, respectively, when compared to the same period in 2019. During the six months ended December 31, 2020, the lower levels of interest expense on the FHLB variable-rate long-term advances compared to the same period of 2019 was principally the result of a $29.3 million reduction in the average balances of advances outstanding as well as a 195 basis point decline in the market interest rate paid. The reduction in Interest expense on FHLB short-term borrowings during the six months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily due to a decrease of $24.2 million in the average balance of advances outstanding, when compared to the same period of 2019.

Interest expense on deposits decreased $140 thousand or 60.3% and $286 thousand or 59.3% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2019. The decrease in interest expense on deposits for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to a 96 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid on time deposits and a $15.8 million decrease in the average balance of time deposits, when compared to the same period in 2019. For the six months ended December 31, 2020, the $286 thousand decrease in interest expense was primarily due to a 113 basis point decrease in the weighted average rate paid on time deposits and a $7.4 million decrease in the average balance of the time deposits, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decreases in the average balances of time deposits for both the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, were primarily attributable to higher levels of short-term brokered deposits when compared to the same periods of 2019. From time to time the Company uses brokered deposits to fund investment purchases or as an alternative to FHLB borrowings if the cost of such deposits is less than other wholesale funding options.

Provision for Loan Losses. A provision for loan losses is charged or accreted to earnings to bring the total allowance to 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

For the three months ended December 31, 2020, the provision for loan losses was the same as in the three months ended December 31, 2019. During the six months ending December 31, 2020, the allowance for loan losses (“ALLL”) increased $11 thousand. During the six month period ending December 31, 2020, there was a credit to the allowance for loan losses (“ALLL”) of $7 thousand compared to a credit of $18 thousand during the same period of 2019.

At December 31, 2020, the Company’s total allowance for loan losses amounted to $611 thousand or 0.68% of the Company’s total loan portfolio, as compared to $618 thousand or 0.68% at June 30, 2020. At December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020, the Company had no non-performing loans.

Non-Interest Income. Non-interest income decreased $19 thousand or 15.6% for the three months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in total non-interest income was primarily the result of an $11 thousand decrease in service charges on deposit accounts and lower gains on the sale of investment securities of $21 thousand during the quarter ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same quarter of the prior year. Partially offsetting these decreases was the absence of other than temporary impairment losses for the three months ended December 31, 2020 compared to a $16 thousand other than temporary impairment loss on the private label mortgage-backed securities (PLMBS) portfolio during the three months ended December 31, 2019.

For the six months ended December 31, 2020, non-interest income decreased $18 thousand or 7.8%, when compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease in non-interest income was primarily attributable to lower charges on deposit accounts in the December 2020 period compared to the prior year period.

Non-Interest Expense. Non-interest expense increased $6 thousand or 1.0% for the three months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily attributable to an increase of $27 thousand in federal deposit insurance expense, an increase of $13 thousand in equipment related expenses, a $9 thousand increase in data processing expense, and a $7 thousand increase in other operating expenses, which were partially offset by a $50 thousand decrease in charitable contribution expenses during the three months ended December 31, 2020 compared to the same period of 2019. The increase in federal deposit insurance expense for the three month period was the result of the absence of the Small Bank Assessment Credits applied by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”).

Non-interest expense increased $39 thousand or 2.3% for the six months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019. This $39 thousand increase was primarily attributable to higher occupancy and equipment related expenses of $19 thousand, a $14 thousand increase in employee compensation and benefits, an $11 thousand increase in data processing expenses and a $77 thousand increase in federal deposit insurance expense as a result of the absence of the Small Bank Assessment Credits applied by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”). The FDIC provided small banks (those with consolidated assets of less than $10 billion) assessment credits after the Deposit Insurance Fund ratio reached, and remained at 1.38 percent. The Savings Bank had no remaining credits as of December 31, 2020. Partially offsetting these increases in non-interest expenses was a decrease of $50 thousand in charitable contribution expenses and a $32 thousand decrease on the provision for off-balance sheet items relating to lower balances of unfunded mortgage loan commitments during the six months ended December 31, 2020, when compared to the same period in 2019.

Income Tax Expense. Income tax expense decreased $71 thousand and $205 thousand for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, when compared to the same periods in 2019. The decreases for both periods ended December 31, 2020, were primarily due to lower levels of taxable income when compared to the same periods of 2019.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $418 thousand during the six months ended December 31, 2020. Net cash provided by operating activities was primarily comprised of net income of $775 thousand which was partially offset by a $377 thousand decrease in prepaid/accrued income taxes.

Primary sources of funds during the six months ended December 31, 2020 included proceeds from repayments of investment securities and mortgage-backed securities in the held-to-maturity portfolio totaling $750 thousand and $38.7 million, respectively, proceeds from repayments of investment securities in the available-for-sale portfolio totaling $31.8 million, $3.0 million of proceeds on sales of investment securities available for sale and repayments of loans in excess of originations of $8.7 million and $1.1 million of proceeds from maturing certificates of deposit. Funds provided by investing activities totaled $41.4 million during the six months ended December 31, 2020. Primary uses of funds during this period were purchases of investment securities available for sale totaling $35.8 million and purchases of loans totaling $8.0 million.

Funds used for financing activities totaled $41.0 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020. The primary uses were a $65 million decrease in FHLB long-term advances, a $5.4 million decrease in certificates of deposit, a $733 thousand decrease in advance payments by borrowers for taxes and insurance and $349 thousand in cash dividends paid on the Company’s common stock, which were partially offset by increases in FHLB short-term borrowings of $33.5 million and transactions and savings accounts totaling $3.0 million. The decrease in certificates of deposits was largely due to the repayment of $3.7 million of wholesale time deposits. Management believes that a significant portion of our local maturing deposits will remain with the Company. Management has determined that it currently is maintaining adequate liquidity and continues to match funding sources with lending and investment opportunities.

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, and wholesale time deposits. Certificates of deposit scheduled to mature in one year or less at December 31, 2020 totaled $27.2 million including $6.2 million of maturing wholesale time deposits.

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, 2020, total approved loan commitments outstanding were $700 thousand. At the same date, commitments under unused lines of credit amounted to $5.1 million and the unadvanced portion of construction loans approximated $2.6 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 wholesale funding sources, to provide the cash utilized in investing activities. The Company’s available for sale segment of the investment portfolio totaled $149.9 million at December 31, 2020. In addition the Company had $3.3 million in cash and cash equivalents and $847 thousand of certificates of deposit at December 31, 2020. Management believes that the Company currently has adequate liquidity available to respond to liquidity demands.

On January 25, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share, payable on February 18, 2021, to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 08, 2021. 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.

The Company’s ratio of Tier 1 capital to risk weighted assets, common equity Tier 1 capital to risk weighted assets and total capital to risk weighted assets were 19.37%, 19.37%, and 19.69%, respectively, at December 31, 2020. The Company’s ratio of Tier 1 capital to average total assets was 11.75% at June 30, 2020.

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 had no nonperforming assets at December 31, 2020 or at June 30, 2020.

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.

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 2014 - 2020 and into fiscal year 2021, 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 effect of interest rate changes on a financial institution’s assets and liabilities may be analyzed by examining the “interest rate sensitivity” of the assets and liabilities and by monitoring an institution’s interest rate sensitivity “gap”. An asset or liability is said to be interest rate sensitive within a specific time period if it will mature or reprice within a given time period. A gap is considered positive (negative) when the amount of rate sensitive assets (liabilities) exceeds the amount of rate sensitive liabilities (assets). During a period of falling interest rates, a negative gap would tend to result in an increase in net interest income. During a period of rising interest rates, a positive gap would tend to result in an increase in net interest income.

As part of its asset/liability management strategy, the Company maintained an asset sensitive financial position due to unusually low market interest rates. An asset sensitive financial position may benefit earnings during a period of rising interest rates and reduce earnings during a period of declining interest rates.

The following table sets forth certain information at the dates indicated relating to the Company’s interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities which are estimated to mature or are scheduled to reprice within one year.

The Company utilizes an income simulation model to measure interest rate risk and to manage interest rate sensitivity. The Company believes that income simulation modeling may enable the Company to better estimate the possible effects on net interest income due to changing market interest rates. Other key model parameters include: estimated prepayment rates on the Company’s loan, mortgage-backed securities and investment portfolios; savings decay rate assumptions; and the repayment terms and embedded options of the Company’s borrowings.

The following table presents the simulated impact of a 100 and 200 basis point upward or downward (parallel) shift in market interest rates on net interest income, return on average equity, return on average assets and the market value of portfolio equity at December 31, 2020. This analysis was done assuming that the interest-earning assets will average approximately $306 million and $306 million over a projected twelve and twenty-four month period, respectively, for the estimated impact on change in net interest income, return on average equity and return on average assets. The estimated changes in market value of equity were calculated using balance sheet levels at December 31, 2020. Actual future results could differ materially from our estimates primarily due to unknown future interest rate changes and the level of prepayments on our investment and loan portfolios.

In the ordinary course of its construction lending business, the Savings Bank enters into performance standby letters of credit. Typically, the standby letters of credit are issued on behalf of a builder to a third party to ensure the timely completion of a certain aspect of a construction project or land development. At December 31, 2020, the Savings Bank had no performance standby letters of credit outstanding. In the event that an obligor is unable to perform its obligations as specified in the applicable letter of credit agreement, the Savings Bank would be obligated to disburse funds up to the amount specified in the letter of credit agreement. The Savings Bank maintains adequate collateral that could be liquidated to fund these contingent obligations.
