K-Fed Bancorp Announces 3rd Quarter Earnings

COVINA, Calif., May 3, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- K-Fed Bancorp (Nasdaq:KFED) (the Company), the parent company of Kaiser Federal Bank (the Bank), reported net income of $1.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share for the quarter ended March, 31, 2010 and $1.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share for the nine months then ended. This compares to net income of $1.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 and $3.5 million, or $0.27 per diluted share for the nine months then ended. The primary reason for the decline in net income was an increase in the provision for loan losses for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2010.

Consistent with prior quarter, the prolonged distressed economic environment in California, elevated unemployment levels and depressed real estate market continue to impact the Company's asset quality. Delinquent loans 60 days or more totaled $18.6 million or 2.44% of total loans and non-performing assets totaled $29.9 million or 3.34% of total assets at March 31, 2010. Delinquent loans 60 days or more totaled $8.5 million or 1.13% of total loans and non-performing assets totaled $9.4 million or 1.05% of totaled assets at June 30, 2009. The Bank continues to work with responsible borrowers to keep their properties and as a result has restructured $10.1 million in mortgage loans of which $8.5 million are performing according to their revised contractual terms at March 31, 2010. This compares to $2.1 million in restructured loans at June 30, 2009. Of the $10.1 million in restructured loans, $8.4 million are reported as non-accrual at March 31, 2010.

Also included in non-accrual loans at March 31, 2010 were two multi-family loans totaling $2.8 million and one commercial real estate loan totaling $2.7 million. These loans were added to non-accrual for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 and remain on non-accrual at March 31, 2010. There were no multi-family or commercial real estate loans on non-accrual at June 30, 2009.

Provision for loan losses increased to $2.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 from $660,000 for the same quarter last year. Provision for loan losses increased to $8.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2010 from $2.0 million for the same period last year. The increase in the provision for loan losses reflected management's continuing assessment of the credit quality of the Bank's loan portfolio, which is affected by various trends, including current economic conditions and expected credit losses.

Net interest margin increased to 3.25% for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 from 2.83% for the same quarter last year. Net interest margin increased to 3.11% for the nine months ended March 31, 2010 from 2.65% for the same period last year. The increases in the net interest margin reflected a significant reduction in the cost of funds as a result of the low interest rate environment and repayment of $60.0 million in higher costing Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances during the past nine months.

Total assets decreased slightly to $893.1 million at March 31, 2010 from $895.1 million at June 30, 2009 while gross loans receivable increased to $765.4 million at March 31, 2010 from $751.5 million at June 30, 2009. The decrease in total assets was a result of the repayment of $60.0 million in FHLB advances as well as the return of $25.0 million in State of California time deposits. The repayment of FHLB advances and State of California time deposits was funded with available liquidity due to strong deposit growth. The repayment of borrowings was partially offset by an increase in deposits.

Total deposits increased $82.5 million to $648.7 million at March 31, 2010 as compared to $566.2 million at June 30, 2009. The increase was comprised of increases of $50.8 million in certificates of deposit, $17.6 million in checking and savings balances and $14.1 million in money market balances. The increase in certificate of deposit balances was primarily a result of promotions for these types of accounts as well as an increase in non promotional individual retirement account balances experienced in December 2009 and January 2010. The increase in checking and savings balances was primarily a result of a higher than normal payroll experienced by a significant number of our customers at the end of March. In addition, money market balances have steadily increased throughout the fiscal year. 

Noninterest expense increased to $4.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 as compared to $4.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009. Noninterest expense increased to $12.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2010 as compared to $12.1 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2009. The increases were primarily a result of an increase in federal deposit insurance premiums of $84,000 and $398,000 for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2010, respectively.

Total equity, represented 10.42% of total assets and increased to $93.0 million at March 31, 2010 from $92.6 million at June 30, 2009. Currently, the Bank meets all regulatory capital requirements established by the Office of Thrift Supervision in order to be classified as a "well-capitalized" bank.
