ROCHESTER, Minn., Oct. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HMN Financial, Inc. (HMN or the Company) (Nasdaq: HMNF), the $594 million holding company for Home Federal Savings Bank (the Bank), today reported net income of $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of $4.5 million compared to net income of $6.0 million for the third quarter of 2013. Net income available to common shareholders was $1.2 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of $4.3 million from the net income available to common shareholders of $5.5 million for the third quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per common share for the third quarter of 2014 was $0.25, a decrease of $1.02 from the diluted earnings per common share of $1.27 for the third quarter of 2013. The decrease in net income for the third quarter of 2014 is due primarily to a $3.3 million increase in the provision for loan losses between the periods. The increase in the provision was primarily because there were fewer positive changes in the values of the underlying collateral supporting commercial real estate loans in the third quarter of 2014 when compared to the same period of 2013. The smaller increases in the market values of the properties resulted in a smaller recapture of established allowances in the third quarter of 2014 when compared to the same period of 2013. Income tax expense increased $0.9 million between the periods due to the recapture of the deferred tax asset valuation reserve in the fourth quarter of 2013, which resulted in regular income tax expense being recorded in the third quarter of 2014.  Net interest income decreased $0.5 million due primarily to a change in the mix of assets between the periods. The gain on sale of real estate owned decreased $0.2 million due to the decreased amount of real estate sold between the periods. These decreases in net income were partially offset by a $0.4 million increase in gain on sales of loans due primarily to the increase in the gains recognized on the sale of commercial government guaranteed loans between the periods.

President's Statement

"We are pleased to report the positive net operating results and the continued decrease in our non-performing assets in the third quarter of 2014," said Bradley Krehbiel, President of HMN. "We continue to focus our efforts on improving the credit quality of our loan portfolio and reducing non-performing assets in the most cost effective manner while at the same time improving our core operating results. We are encouraged by the improving trends in both areas and will continue to work on improving them further in the future." 

Third Quarter Results

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $4.8 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of $0.5 million, or 9.2%, compared to $5.3 million for the third quarter of 2013. Interest income was $5.1 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 10.4%, from $5.7 million for the same period of 2013. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of a change in the mix of average interest-earning assets held and also because of a decrease in the average yields earned between the periods. While the average interest-earning assets increased $64.0 million between the periods, the average interest-earning assets held in lower yielding cash and investments increased $100.9 million and the amount of average interest-earning assets held in higher yielding loans decreased $36.9 million between the periods. The decrease in the average outstanding loans between the periods was primarily the result of a decrease in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred primarily because of loan prepayments and non-renewals as a result of the Company's focus on improving credit quality, decreasing loan concentration, and managing net interest margin. The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 3.51% for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of 90 basis points from 4.41% for the third quarter of 2013. The decrease in average yield is due to the change in the mix of assets held and the continued low short-term interest rate environment that existed during the third quarter of 2014.

Interest expense was $0.3 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 26.5%, compared to $0.4 million for the third quarter of 2013. Interest expense decreased primarily because of the change in the mix of the average interest-bearing liabilities held between the periods and also because of a decrease in the average rate. While the average interest-bearing liabilities increased $56.1 million between the periods, the amount held in higher rate borrowings and certificates of deposits decreased $32.9 million and the amount of interest-bearing liabilities held in other lower rate deposit accounts increased $89.0 million between the periods. The decrease in borrowings and certificates of deposits between the periods was the result of using the proceeds from loan principal payments to fund matured borrowings and certificates of deposits. The decreased average rates paid were the result of the change in the mix of liabilities held and the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the third quarter of 2014. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 0.23% for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of 11 basis points from the 0.34% average interest rate paid in the third quarter of 2013. Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) for the third quarter of 2014 was 3.31%, a decrease of 79 basis points, compared to 4.10% for the third quarter of 2013.

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses was ($1.0) million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of $3.3 million, compared to ($4.3) million for the third quarter of 2013. The provision for loan losses increased primarily because there were fewer positive changes in the values of the underlying collateral supporting commercial real estate loans in the third quarter of 2014 when compared to the same period of 2013. The smaller increases in the market values of the properties resulted in a smaller recapture of established allowances in the third quarter of 2014 when compared to the same period of 2013. The provision also increased between the periods because of changes in the reserve percentages on certain risk classifications as a result of an internal analysis of the loan portfolio. Total non-performing assets were $13.8 million at September 30, 2014, a decrease of $2.0 million, or 12.2%, from $15.8 million at June 30, 2014. Non-performing loans decreased $1.9 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $0.1 million during the third quarter of 2014. The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for the quarter was as follows:

(Dollars in thousands)      
Non-performing loans Foreclosed and repossessed assets
June 30, 2014 $12,291 June 30, 2014 $3,476

Transferred to real estate owned  (31) Transferred from non-performing loans  31
September 30, 2014 $10,394 September 30, 2014 $3,445

The decrease in non-performing loans during the third quarter of 2014 relates primarily to principal payments received and loans being classified as accruing during the period. Of the $2.1 million in principal payments received, $0.6 million related to the payoff of a non-performing one-to-four family loan that was refinanced with another financial institution, $0.6 million related to the payoff of three construction loans as a result of home sales, and $0.5 million related to the payoff of a non-performing commercial loan.

The following table summarizes the number of lending relationships and types of commercial real estate loans that were non-performing as of the end of the two most recently completed quarters and December 31, 2013.

(Dollars in thousands) Property Type  # of relationships Principal Amount of Loans at September 30, 2014 # of relationships Principal Amount of Loans at June 30, 2014 # of relationships Principal Amount of Loans at December 31, 2013
Developments/land 3 $8,730 3 $8,803 9 $14,549

The decrease in the non-performing commercial real estate loans from June 30, 2014 is due primarily to principal payments received on construction and development loans during the quarter as a result of various building lot sales.

Non-Interest Income and Expense

Non-interest income was $2.2 million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of $0.4 million, or 20.4%, from $1.8 million for the same period of 2013. Gain on sales of loans increased $0.4 million primarily because of an increase in the gains recognized on the sale of commercial government guaranteed loans between the periods due to an increase in originations of these types of loans in the third quarter of 2014 when compared to the same period of 2013.

Non-interest expense was $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of $0.1 million, or 2.6%, from $5.3 million for the same period of 2013. The gain on real estate owned decreased $0.2 million primarily because of a decrease in the gains recognized on the properties sold. Compensation and benefits expense increased $0.2 million primarily because of an increase in pension benefit plan costs and employee incentives. These increases in non-interest expense were partially offset between the periods by a $0.1 million decrease in deposit insurance costs due to a decrease in insurance rates between the periods. Data processing costs decreased $0.1 million due to a decrease in hardware and software depreciation expense. Other non-interest income decreased $0.1 million between the periods primarily because of a decrease in legal and other expenses related to non-performing assets.

Income tax expense was $1.1 million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of $0.9 million, from $0.2 million for the third quarter of 2013. In the second quarter of 2010, the Company recorded a deferred tax asset valuation reserve against its entire deferred tax asset balance and the Company continued to maintain a valuation reserve against the entire deferred tax asset balance at September 30, 2013. Since the valuation reserve was established against the entire deferred tax asset balance, no regular income tax expense was recorded for the third quarter of 2013. The income tax expense that was recorded in the third quarter of 2013 related to alternative minimum tax amounts that were due since only a portion of the outstanding net operating loss carry forwards could be used to offset current income under the alternative minimum tax rules.  In the fourth quarter of 2013, the valuation reserve against the deferred tax asset was eliminated and regular income tax expense of $1.1 million was recorded in the third quarter of 2014.

Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

Net income available to common shareholders was $1.2 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of $4.3 million from the $5.5 million net income available to common shareholders in the third quarter of 2013. The net income available to common shareholders decreased primarily because of the decrease in net income between the periods.

On August 15, 2014 the Company paid a dividend of $22.50 per share on the Company's Series A Fixed Rate Perpetual Preferred Stock ("Preferred Stock"). The Company did not pay any dividends on the Preferred Stock in the third quarter of 2013. 

On October 9, 2014, the Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a dividend of $22.50 per share on the Company's outstanding Preferred Stock. The amount of the dividend represents all accrued and unpaid dividends on the Preferred Stock for the dividend period ending on November 14, 2014. The dividend will be payable on November 17, 2014 to holders of record of the Preferred Stock on October 7, 2014. Also on October 9, 2014, the Company announced that it will redeem 6,000 shares of the Preferred Stock on a pro rata basis from holders of record of the Preferred Stock on October 7, 2014. The effective date of the redemption will be November 17, 2014.  Giving effect to the dividend to be paid on the same date, the redemption price per share will be $1,000. Following the redemption, 10,000 shares of Preferred Stock will remain outstanding. The Company has requested and received all applicable approvals from regulatory authorities to pay the Preferred Stock dividend and effect the Preferred Stock redemption.

The reduction in the number of outstanding shares of Preferred Stock will, from and after November 15, 2014, reduce the quarterly Preferred Stock dividend accrual from $360,000 to $225,000. 

Return on Assets and Equity

Return on average assets (annualized) for the third quarter of 2014 was 1.01%, compared to 4.44% for the third quarter of 2013. Return on average equity (annualized) was 7.89% for the third quarter of 2014, compared to 38.17% for the same period of 2013. Book value per common share at September 30, 2014 was $14.45, compared to $9.47 at September 30, 2013.

Nine Month Period Results

Net Income

Net income was $5.7 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014, a decrease of $2.9 million, or 33.5%, compared to net income of $8.6 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013. The net income available to common shareholders was $4.3 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014, a decrease of $2.7 million, or 39.1%, compared to the net income available to common shareholders of $7.0 million for the same period of 2013. Diluted earnings per common share for the first nine months of 2014 was $0.93, a decrease of $0.72 per share compared to the diluted earnings per common share of $1.65 for the same period in 2013. The decrease in net income for the first nine months of 2014 as compared to the same period of 2013 is due primarily to a $3.5 million increase in income tax expense between the periods. The increase in income tax expense is due to the recapture of the deferred tax asset valuation reserve in the fourth quarter of 2013, which resulted in regular income tax expense being recorded in the first nine months of 2014. Net interest income also decreased $0.3 million due primarily to a change in the mix of assets held between the periods. These decreases in net income were partially offset by a $0.5 million increase in gains on real estate owned and a $0.7 million decrease in other non-interest operating expenses primarily because of decreased legal and other expenses related to non-performing assets.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $14.6 million for the first nine months of 2014, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 1.9%, from $14.9 million for the same period of 2013. Interest income was $15.6 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 12.7%, from $17.8 million for the same period of 2013. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of a change in the mix of average interest-earning assets held and also because of a decrease in the average yields earned between the periods. While the average interest-earning assets increased $20.4 million between the periods, the average interest-earning assets held in lower yielding cash and investment increased $67.5 million and the amount of average interest-earning assets held in higher yielding loans decreased $47.1 million between the periods. The decrease in the average outstanding loans between the periods was primarily the result of a decrease in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred primarily because of loan prepayments and non-renewals as a result of the Company's focus on improving credit quality, decreasing loan concentration, and managing net interest margin. The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 3.58% for the first nine months of 2014, a decrease of 67 basis points from 4.25% for the same period of 2013. The decrease in average yield is due to the change in the mix of assets held and the continued low short-term interest rate environment that existed during the first nine months of 2014.

Interest expense was $0.9 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014, a decrease of $2.0 million, or 67.8%, from $2.9 million for the same period in 2013. Interest expense decreased primarily because of the change in the mix of the average interest-bearing liabilities held between the periods and also because of a decrease in the average rate. While the average interest-bearing liabilities increased $8.7 million between the periods, the amount held in higher rate borrowings and certificates of deposits decreased $83.7 million and the amount of interest-bearing liabilities held in other lower rate deposit accounts increased $92.4 million between the periods. The decrease in borrowings and certificates of deposits between the periods was the result of using the proceeds from loan principal payments to fund maturing borrowings and certificates of deposits. The decreased average rates paid were the result of the change in the mix of liabilities held and the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the first nine months of 2014. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 0.24% for the first nine months of 2014, a decrease of 51 basis points from the 0.75% average interest rate paid in the first nine months of 2013. Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) for the first nine months of 2014 was 3.36%, a decrease of 20 basis points, compared to 3.56% for the first nine months of 2013.

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses was ($4.8) million for the first nine months of 2014, an increase of $0.1 million, from ($4.9) million for the same nine-month period of 2013. The decrease in the size of the commercial loan portfolio and the continued improvement in the credit quality of the loan portfolio in the first nine months of 2014 and 2013 resulted in lower reserves being required in the allowance for loan losses. The reduction in the allowance for loan losses was the primary reason for the large credits in the provision for loan losses for the first nine months of 2014 and 2013. Total non-performing assets were $13.8 million at September 30, 2014, a decrease of $10.6 million, or 43.3%, from $24.4 million at December 31, 2013. Non-performing loans decreased $7.1 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $3.5 million during the first nine months of 2014. The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for the first nine months of 2014 was as follows:

(Dollars in thousands)

    Other payments received on real estate  (255)
September 30, 2014 $10,394 September 30, 2014 $3,445
   

The decrease in non-performing loans during the first nine months of 2014 relates primarily to principal payments received. Of the $6.8 million in principal payments received during the period, $2.5 million was received on a residential development loan as settlement of the outstanding debt, $1.5 million related to the payoff of non-performing single family construction loans as a result of the houses being sold, $1.2 million related to the payoff of two non-performing one-to-four family loans that were refinanced with other financial institutions, $0.6 million related to additional principal payments received from various developers as a result of land or lot sales, and $0.5 million related to the payoff of a non-performing commercial loan. 

A reconciliation of the Company's allowance for loan losses for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 is summarized as follows:

Non-Interest Income and Expense

Non-interest income was $5.6 million for the first nine months of 2014, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 1.4%, from $5.7 million for the same period in 2013.  Gain on sales of loans decreased $0.3 million between the periods primarily because of a decrease in single family loan originations due to the decrease in refinance activity in the first nine months of 2014 when compared to the same period of 2013. This decrease was partially offset by an increase of $0.2 million in other income as a result of increased rental income and income from the sale of uninsured investment products.

Non-interest expense was $15.6 million for the first nine months of 2014, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 6.4%, from $16.7 million for the same period in 2013. Other non-interest expense decreased $0.7 million primarily because of decreased legal and other expenses related to non-performing assets. The gain on real estate owned increased $0.5 million primarily because of an increase in the gains recognized on the properties sold. Deposit insurance costs decreased $0.4 million primarily because of a decrease in insurance rates between the periods and data processing costs decreased $0.3 million due to a decrease in hardware and software depreciation expense. These decreases in non-interest expense were partially offset by a $0.7 million increase in compensation and benefits expense between the periods due primarily to increases in salaries and pension related expenses. Occupancy expense also increased $0.1 million due to increases in non-capitalized software costs.

Income tax expense was $3.7 million for the first nine months of 2014, an increase of $3.5 million, from $0.2 million for the same period in 2013. In the second quarter of 2010, the Company recorded a deferred tax asset valuation reserve against its entire deferred tax asset balance and the Company continued to maintain a valuation reserve against the entire deferred tax asset balance at September 30, 2013. Since the valuation reserve was established against the entire deferred tax asset balance, no regular income tax expense was recorded for the first nine months of 2013. The income tax expense that was recorded in the first nine months of 2013 related to alternative minimum tax amounts that were due since only a portion of the outstanding net operating loss carry forwards could be used to offset current income under the alternative minimum tax rules. In the fourth quarter of 2013, the valuation reserve against the deferred tax asset was eliminated and regular income tax expense of $3.7 million was recorded in the first nine months of 2014.

Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

The net income available to common shareholders was $4.3 million for the first nine months of 2014, a decrease of $2.7 million from the $7.0 million net income available to common shareholders in the same period of 2013. The net income available to common shareholders decreased primarily because of the decrease in net income between the periods.

On May 15, 2014, the Company paid a dividend of $201.71 per share on the Company's outstanding Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A (the Preferred Stock). The amount of the dividend represented all accrued and unpaid dividends on the Preferred Stock for all past dividend periods and for the dividend period ended on May 14, 2014. On May 15, 2014, the Company also redeemed 10,000 shares of outstanding Preferred Stock on a pro rata basis at $1,000 per share. Following the redemption, 16,000 shares of Preferred Stock remained outstanding.

On August 15, 2014, the Company paid a dividend of $22.50 per share on the Company's outstanding Preferred Stock. The amount of the dividend represented all accrued and unpaid dividends on the Preferred Stock for the dividend period ended on August 14, 2014. The Company did not pay any dividends on or redeem any shares of the Preferred Stock during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

On October 9, 2014, the Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a dividend of $22.50 per share on the Company's outstanding Preferred Stock. The amount of the dividend represents all accrued and unpaid dividends on the Preferred Stock for the dividend period ending on November 14, 2014. The dividend will be payable on November 17, 2014 to holders of record of the Preferred Stock on October 7, 2014. Also on October 9, 2014, the Company announced that it will redeem 6,000 shares of the Preferred Stock on a pro rata basis from holders of record of the Preferred Stock on October 7, 2014. The effective date of the redemption will be November 17, 2014. Giving effect to the dividend to be paid on the same date, the redemption price per share will be $1,000. Following the redemption, 10,000 shares of Preferred Stock will remain outstanding.

SESAMi has enjoyed a long history of successful relationships with banks such as DBS (for trade finance) and OCBC and CitiBank (for other corporate programmes). “Our partnership with ApexPeak will complement our existing banking relations, and improve the speed for small businesses to receive early cash payments on e-invoices,” says Mr Ong.

Christy Oi, Chief Financial Officer of Singapore-based ApexPeak, was pleased to see the deal closed. “We welcome being part of one of Singapore’s most established and reputable e-procurement platforms. We look forward to working with Teck Soon and improving the firm’s order-to-cash model.”

Franklin Universal Trust Declares Monthly Dividend Oct 20, 2014 11:24PM

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/20/14 -- Franklin Universal Trust (NYSE: FT), a closed-end investment company managed by Franklin Advisers, Inc., announced today a dividend of $0.0395 per share, payable November 14, 2014, to shareholders of record on October 31, 2014 (Ex-Dividend Date: October 29, 2014).

Dividends may vary based on the Fund's net investment income. Past dividends are not indicative of future trends.

You may request a copy of the Fund's current Report to Shareholders by contacting Franklin Templeton's Fund Information Department at 1-800/DIAL BEN (1-800-342-5236) or by visiting franklintempleton.com. All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. Bond prices generally move in the opposite direction of interest rates. As the prices of bonds in a fund adjust to a rise in interest rates, the fund's share price may decline. Investments in lower-rated bonds include higher risk of default and loss of principal. Stock prices fluctuate, sometimes rapidly and dramatically, due to factors affecting individual companies, particular industries or sectors, or general market conditions. In addition to other factors, securities issued by utility companies have historically been sensitive to interest rate changes. When interest rates fall, utility securities prices, and thus a utilities fund's share price, tend to rise; when interest rates rise, their prices generally fall. The Fund is actively managed but there is no guarantee that the manager's investment decisions will produce the desired results. For portfolio management discussions, including information regarding the Fund's investment strategies, please view the most recent Annual or Semi-Annual Report to Shareholders which can be found at franklintempleton.com or sec.gov.

Franklin Resources, Inc. (NYSE: BEN) is a global investment management organization operating as Franklin Templeton Investments. Franklin Templeton Investments provides global and domestic investment management to retail, institutional and sovereign wealth clients in over 150 countries.
