Net Income Increases by 529%

Non-Performing Assets Decline by 10% (Sequential Quarter)

Core Deposits (Transaction Accounts) Increase by 5%

RIVERSIDE, Calif., April 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Provident Financial Holdings, Inc. ("Company"), (Nasdaq:PROV), the holding company for Provident Savings Bank, F.S.B. ("Bank"), today announced third quarter earnings for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2011, the Company reported net income of $2.34 million, or $0.20 per diluted share (on 11.43 million average shares outstanding), compared to net income of $371,000, or $0.03 per diluted share (on 11.33 million average shares outstanding), in the comparable period a year ago. The increase in net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was primarily attributable to an increase in non-interest income, partly offset by an increase in non-interest expenses as compared to the same period last year.

"This quarter marks the sixth consecutive profitable quarter for the Company and we are pleased with our progress coming out of what many economists believe to be the most significant economic downturn since the Great Depression. We remain optimistic that the slowly improving economic conditions will accelerate as we continue through 2011 and believe that the Company is well-positioned in the markets we serve to benefit from improving conditions," said Craig G. Blunden, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "Our mortgage banking results improved from the same quarter last year and we continue to capture a significant amount of mortgage banking loan origination volume."

As of March 31, 2011 the Bank exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with Tangible Capital, Core Capital, Total Risk-Based Capital and Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital ratios of 10.16 percent, 10.16 percent, 16.07 percent and 14.82 percent, respectively. As of June 30, 2010 these ratios were 8.82 percent, 8.82 percent, 13.17 percent and 11.91 percent, respectively. For each period, the Bank's capital ratios exceeded the minimum required ratios to be deemed "well-capitalized" (5.00 percent for Core Capital, 10.00 percent for Total Risk-Based Capital and 6.00 percent for Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital).

Return on average assets for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 improved to 0.69 percent from 0.10 percent for the same period of fiscal 2010. Return on average stockholders' equity for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 improved to 6.79 percent from 1.20 percent for the comparable period of fiscal 2010.

On a sequential quarter basis, third quarter results reflect net income of $2.34 million, a 45 percent decrease from $4.26 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. The decrease in the current quarter was primarily attributable to an increase in the provision for loan losses and a decrease in non-interest income. Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 decreased to $0.20 per share from $0.37 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. Return on average assets decreased to 0.69 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from 1.24 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2011; and return on average stockholders' equity for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was 6.79 percent, compared to 12.62 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2011, net income was $11.12 million, compared to a net loss of $(2.09) million in the comparable period ended March 31, 2010; and the diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended March 31, 2011 improved to $0.98 from a loss of $(0.26) for the comparable period last year. The return on average assets for the nine months ended March 31, 2011 improved to 1.08 percent from negative (0.19) percent for the nine-month period a year earlier. The return on average stockholders' equity for the nine months ended March 31, 2011 was 11.04 percent, compared to negative (2.38) percent for the nine-month period a year earlier.                       

Net interest income before provision for loan losses decreased $421,000, or four percent, to $9.17 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from $9.59 million for the same period in fiscal 2010. Non-interest income increased $5.78 million, or 201 percent, to $8.66 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from $2.88 million in the comparable period of fiscal 2010. Non-interest expenses increased $1.46 million, or 15 percent, to $11.01 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from $9.55 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2010.  The increase in both non-interest income and non-interest expenses relate primarily to increased mortgage banking loan production.

The average balance of loans outstanding decreased by $100.2 million, or nine percent, to $1.06 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from $1.16 billion in the same quarter of fiscal 2010. The managed decline in the loan balance was consistent with the Company's short-term de-leveraging strategy to further its goals of maintaining prudent capital ratios, reducing its credit risk profile in response to the current economic conditions and providing sufficient balance sheet capacity for its mortgage banking operations.  The average yield on loans receivable decreased by 37 basis points to 5.17 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from an average yield of 5.54 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2010. The decrease in the average loan yield was primarily attributable to payoffs of loans which had a higher yield than the average yield of loans held for investment and adjustable rate loans repricing to lower interest rates. Loans originated for investment in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 totaled $8.1 million (including $6.6 million of loans purchased for investment), consisting primarily of multi-family loans. In the third quarter of fiscal 2010, loans originated for investment totaled $533,000, consisting primarily of multi-family loans. The outstanding balance of "preferred loans" (multi-family, commercial real estate, construction and commercial business loans) decreased by $40.9 million, or nine percent, to $429.5 million at March 31, 2011 from $470.4 million at March 31, 2010. The percentage of preferred loans to total loans held for investment at March 31, 2011 increased to 45 percent from 43 percent at March 31, 2010. Loan principal payments received in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $19.7 million, compared to $22.6 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2010.  In addition, real estate acquired in the settlement of loans (real estate owned) in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 totaled $10.6 million, compared to $19.1 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2010.

The average balance of investment securities decreased by $9.3 million, or 25 percent, to $28.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from $37.9 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2010. The decrease was attributable primarily to the sale of investment securities in fiscal 2010 which was not replicated in fiscal 2011.  The average yield decreased 69 basis points to 2.59 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from 3.28 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2010.  The decline in average yield was primarily attributable to the downward repricing of adjustable rate mortgage-backed securities, principal paydowns of higher yielding mortgage-backed securities and the sale of higher yielding mortgage-backed securities.

In February 2011, the Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") – San Francisco announced a partial redemption of excess capital stock held by member banks. As a result, a total of $1.2 million of excess capital stock was redeemed in March 2011. Also in February 2011, the FHLB – San Francisco declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended December 31, 2010; the $22,000 cash dividend was received by the Bank in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. 

The average balance of excess liquidity, primarily cash with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, increased to $167.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from $113.8 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2010. The Bank maintained high levels of cash and cash equivalents in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 in response to the uncertain operating environment and to fund its mortgage banking business. The average yield earned on interest-earning deposits was 0.25% in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, much lower than the yield that could have been earned if the excess liquidity was deployed in loans or investment securities.

Average deposits were $937.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, a small decline from $942.8 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2010. The average cost of deposits decreased by 50 basis points to 1.04 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from 1.54 percent in the same quarter last year, primarily due to higher costing time deposits repricing to lower interest rates and a reduction in rates paid on transaction account balances ("core deposits"). Core deposits increased by $20.8 million, or five percent, to $470.3 million at March 31, 2011 from $449.5 million at March 31, 2010, in step with the Bank's strategy to decrease the percentage of time deposits in its deposit base and to increase the percentage of lower cost checking and savings accounts. Time deposits decreased by $21.7 million, or four percent, to $476.7 million at March 31, 2011 compared to $498.4 million at March 31, 2010.

The average balance of borrowings, which consisted of FHLB – San Francisco advances, decreased $79.3 million, or 24 percent, to $248.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and the average cost of advances decreased 14 basis points to 3.98 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, compared to an average balance of $328.0 million and an average cost of 4.12 percent in the same quarter of fiscal 2010. The decrease in borrowings was primarily attributable to scheduled maturities.

The net interest margin during the third quarter of fiscal 2011 remained unchanged at 2.85 percent as compared to the same quarter last year. The decrease in deposit costs, particularly time deposit costs, and borrowing costs were offset by a lower average yield on loans and investment securities, and a higher level of excess liquidity invested at a nominal yield.  

During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $2.69 million, compared to the $2.32 million provision for loan losses recorded during the same period of fiscal 2010 and the $1.05 million provision recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 (sequential quarter). The increase in the provision for loan losses was primarily a result of the elevated charge-offs during the third quarter of fiscal 2011, primarily single-family loans, although the overall asset quality and the 30 to 89 day delinquent category greatly improved from the sequential second quarter of fiscal 2011.

Non-performing assets, with underlying collateral primarily located in Southern California, decreased to $57.3 million, or 4.28 percent of total assets, at March 31, 2011, compared to $91.4 million, or 6.50 percent of total assets, at March 31, 2010 and $73.5 million, or 5.25 percent of total assets, at June 30, 2010. Non-performing loans at March 31, 2011 were primarily comprised of 128 single-family loans ($37.3 million); four multi-family loans ($4.9 million); five commercial real estate loans ($2.8 million); two other mortgage loans ($1.2 million); one construction loan ($250,000) and four commercial business loans ($145,000).  Real estate owned acquired in the settlement of loans was comprised of 35 single-family properties ($8.7 million), two multi-family properties ($1.1 million), one commercial real estate property ($377,000), one developed lot ($398,000) and 25 undeveloped lots ($78,000). Net charge-offs for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 were $5.14 million or 1.94 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable, compared to $6.84 million or 2.35 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 and $3.21 million or 1.12 percent (annualized) of average loans receivable for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 (sequential quarter).

Classified assets at March 31, 2011 were $75.8 million, comprised of $11.1 million in the special mention category, $54.0 million in the substandard category and $10.7 million in real estate owned. Classified assets at June 30, 2010 were $95.6 million, comprised of $20.5 million in the special mention category, $60.4 million in the substandard category and $14.7 million in real estate owned. 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2011, eleven loans for $5.6 million were re-underwritten and modified from their original terms, and were identified as restructured loans. As of March 31, 2011, the outstanding balance of restructured loans was $44.8 million: 38 loans are classified as pass, are not included in the classified asset totals described earlier and remain on accrual status ($18.1 million); eight loans are classified as special mention and remain on accrual status ($3.4 million); 56 loans are classified as substandard ($23.3 million, all of which are on non-accrual status); and one loan is classified as a loss, fully reserved and on non-accrual status.  As of March 31, 2011, $34.2 million, or 76 percent, of the restructured loans are current with respect to their payment status.

The allowance for loan losses was $34.5 million at March 31, 2011, or 3.64 percent of gross loans held for investment, compared to $43.5 million, or 4.14 percent of gross loans held for investment at June 30, 2010. The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2011 includes $17.0 million of specific loan loss reserves and $17.5 million of general loan loss reserves, compared to $17.8 million of specific loan loss reserves and $25.7 million of general loan loss reserves at June 30, 2010. Management believes that, based on currently available information, the allowance for loan losses is sufficient to absorb potential losses inherent in loans held for investment.

Non-interest income increased to $8.66 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to $2.88 million in the same period of fiscal 2010, primarily the result of a $5.25 million increase in the gain on sale of loans and a $1.09 million net gain on sale of the retail branch facility in Temecula, California.

The gain on sale of loans increased to $6.68 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 from $1.43 million in the comparable quarter last year, reflecting a higher average loan sale margin and a higher loan sale volume. The average loan sale margin for mortgage banking was 142 basis points for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, compared to 36 basis points in the comparable quarter last year. The gain on sale of loans includes a favorable fair-value adjustment on loans held for sale and derivative financial instruments (commitments to extend credit, commitments to sell loans, commitments to sell mortgage-backed securities, and put option contracts) that amounted to a net gain of $1.42 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as compared to an unfavorable fair-value adjustment that amounted to a net loss of $(752,000) in the same period last year. The gain on sale of loans for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 includes a $1.24 million recovery from the recourse reserve on loans sold that are subject to repurchase, compared to a $1.18 million recourse provision in the comparable quarter last year. As of March 31, 2011, the recourse reserve for loans sold that are subject to repurchase was $4.1 million, compared to $6.1 million at March 31, 2010 and $6.3 million at June 30, 2010.

The volume of loans originated for sale was $423.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, an increase of 18 percent from $359.2 million for the same period last year. The loan origination volumes were the result of favorable liquidity in the secondary mortgage markets particularly in FHA/VA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loan products and relatively low mortgage interest rates. Total loans sold for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 were $430.9 million, an increase of 26 percent from $343.0 million for the same quarter last year. Total loan originations (including loans originated for investment and loans originated for sale) were $432.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, an increase of 20 percent from $359.8 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2010.

The sale and operations of real estate owned acquired in the settlement of loans resulted in a net loss of $(550,000) in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as compared to a net gain of $58,000 in the comparable period last year. Thirty-nine real estate owned properties were sold in the quarter ended March 31, 2011 compared to 25 real estate owned properties sold in the same quarter last year. During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, twenty-five real estate owned properties were acquired in the settlement of loans, compared to 45 real estate owned properties acquired in the settlement of loans in the comparable period last year. As of March 31, 2011, the real estate owned balance was $10.7 million (64 properties), compared to $14.7 million (77 properties) at June 30, 2010 and $17.6 million (75 properties) at March 31, 2010.

Non-interest expenses increased to $11.01 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from $9.55 million in the same quarter last year, primarily as a result of an increase in compensation expense related to higher mortgage banking loan production.    

The Company's efficiency ratio improved to 62 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 from 77 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2010. The improvement was the result of an increase in non-interest income, partly offset by an increase in non-interest expense.

The Company's tax provision was $1.80 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, up $1.57 million from $229,000 in the same quarter last year. The effective income tax rate for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was 43.5 percent as compared to 38.2 percent in the same quarter last year. The increase in the effective income tax rate was primarily the result of a higher percentage of permanent tax differences relative to income before taxes. The Company believes that the tax provision recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 reflects its current income tax obligations.

The Bank currently operates 14 retail/business banking offices in Riverside County and San Bernardino County (Inland Empire). Provident Bank Mortgage operates wholesale loan production offices in Pleasanton and Rancho Cucamonga, California and retail loan production offices in City of Industry, Escondido, Glendora, Pleasanton, Rancho Cucamonga and Riverside (3), California.
