Quarterly Report


Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

General

The primary function of the Company is to monitor and oversee its investment in the Bank. The Company engages in few other activities, and the Company has no significant assets other than its investment in the Bank. As a result, the results of operations of the Company are derived primarily from operations of the Bank. The Bank's results of operations are primarily dependent on net interest margin, which is the difference between interest income on interest-earning assets and interest expense on interest-bearing liabilities. The Bank's income is also affected by the level of its noninterest expenses, such as employee salaries and benefits, occupancy expenses and other expenses. The following discussion reviews material changes in the Company's financial condition as of March 31, 2013, and the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012.

The discussion set forth below, as well as other portions of this Form 10-Q, may contain forward-looking comments. Such comments are based upon the information currently available to management of the Company and management's perception thereof as of the date of this Form 10-Q. When used in this Form 10-Q, words such as "anticipates," "estimates," "believes," "expects," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results of the Company's operations could materially differ from those forward-looking comments. The differences could be caused by a number of factors or combination of factors including, but not limited to: changes in demand for banking services; changes in portfolio composition; changes in management strategy; increased competition from both bank and non-bank companies; changes in the general level of interest rates; changes in general or local economic conditions; changes in federal or state regulations and legislation governing the operations of the Company or the Bank; and other factors set forth in reports and other documents filed by the Company with the SEC from time to time, including the risk factors described under Item 1A. of the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

Financial Condition

The Company's total assets decreased $10,460,447 (2%) from $660,432,218 as of December 31, 2012, to $649,971,771 as of March 31, 2013.

Available-for-sale securities increased $5,455,295 (5%) from $101,980,644 as of December 31, 2012, to $107,435,939 as of March 31, 2013. The increase is primarily due to purchases of $25.5 million offset by sales, maturities and principal payments received of $19.6 million.

Net loans receivable decreased by $13,639,523 (3%) from $465,531,973 as of December 31, 2012, to $451,892,450 as of March 31, 2013. The Company experienced certain anticipated payoffs of various commercial real estate loans. During the quarter, commercial real estate loans decreased $13,027,389 (8%). Also, commercial loans decreased $3,956,203 (4%), permanent multi-family loans increased $100,317 (0%), construction loans increased $2,946,652 (6%), loans secured by owner occupied one to four unit residential real estate decreased $544,795 (1%) and installment loans increased $196,644 (1%). The Company continues to focus its lending efforts in the commercial and owner occupied real estate loan categories, and to reduce its concentrations in non-owner occupied commercial real estate.

Allowance for loan losses decreased $628,244 (7%) from $8,740,325 as of December 31, 2012 to $8,112,081 as of March 31, 2013. The allowance decreased due to net loan charge-offs of $1,028,244 exceeding provision for loan losses of $400,000 recorded during the period. Management charged off certain specific loans that had been identified and classified as impaired at December 31, 2012. See discussion under "Results of Operations - Comparison of Three Month Periods Ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 - Provision for Loan Losses." The allowance for loan losses, as a percentage of gross loans outstanding (excluding mortgage loans held for sale), as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 was 1.76% and 1.83%, respectively. The allowance for loan losses, as a percentage of nonperforming loans outstanding, as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 was 51.8% and 57.0%, respectively. Management believes the allowance for loan losses is at a level to be sufficient in providing for potential loan losses in the Bank's existing loan portfolio.


Deposits increased $3,629,502 (1%) from $500,014,715 as of December 31, 2012, to $503,644,217 as of March 31, 2013. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, checking and savings accounts increased by $14.1 million and certificates of deposit decreased by $10.5 million. The increase in checking and savings accounts was due to the Bank's continued efforts to increase core transaction deposits, both retail and commercial. See also the discussion under "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure about Market Risk - Asset/Liability Management."

Stockholders' equity (including unrealized appreciation on available-for-sale securities, net of tax) increased $572,177 from $50,868,570 as of December 31, 2012, to $51,440,747 as of March 31, 2013. The Company's net income during this period was $952,653. In conjuction with the Series A Preferred Stock, the Company accrued $150,000 of dividends (5%) during the period. On a per common share basis, stockholders' equity increased from $14.34 as of December 31, 2012 to $14.49 as of March 31, 2013.

Average Balances, Interest and Average Yields

The Company's profitability is primarily dependent upon net interest income, which represents the difference between interest and fees earned on loans and debt and equity securities, and the cost of deposits and borrowings. Net interest income is dependent on the difference between the average balances and rates earned on interest-earning assets and the average balances and rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities. Non-interest income, non-interest expense, and income taxes also impact net income.

The following table sets forth certain information relating to the Company's average consolidated statements of financial condition and reflects the average yield on assets and average cost of liabilities for the periods indicated. Such yields and costs are derived by dividing income or expense annualized by the average balance of assets or liabilities, respectively, for the periods shown. Average balances were derived from average daily balances. The average balance of loans includes loans on which the Company has discontinued accruing interest. The yields and costs include fees which are considered adjustments to yields. All dollar amounts are in thousands.

Results of Operations - Comparison of Three Month Periods Ended March 31, 2013 and 2012

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 was $952,653 and $834,722, respectively, which represents an increase in earnings of $117,931 (14%).

Interest Income

Total interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased $446,501 (7%) as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012. For the three month period ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, the average yield on interest earning assets decreased 40 basis points to 4.26%, while the average balance of interest earning assets increased approximately $14,287,000. The Company's decrease in the average yield on interest earning assets was the continued decline of loans. Loans have declined $15.2 million since December 31, 2012. The Company experienced certain anticipated payoffs of various commercial real estate loans.


Interest Expense

Total interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased $421,996 (23%) when compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012. For the three month period ended March 31, 2013, the average cost of interest bearing liabilities decreased 33 basis points to 1.03%, and the average balance of interest bearing liabilities increased approximately $10,049,000 when compared to the same period in 2012. The primary reason for the decrease in the average cost of interest bearing liabilities was the continued decline in higher cost certificates of deposits as well as reductions in the average rate paid on transaction deposit balances. Also, the Company reduced its FHLB advances by $15.0 million during the latter half of the quarter.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased $24,505 (0%) when compared to the same period in 2012. The average balance of interest earning assets increased by approximately $4,238,000 more than the average balance of interest bearing liabilities increased when comparing the three month period ended March 31, 2013 to the same period in 2012. For the three month period ended March 31, 2013, the net interest margin decreased 10 basis points to 3.31% when compared to the same period in 2012.

Provision for Loan Losses

Based on its internal analysis and methodology, Management recorded a provision for loan losses of $400,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $900,000 for the same period in 2012. The Bank will continue to monitor its allowance for loan losses and make future additions based on economic and regulatory conditions. Management anticipates the need to continue increasing the allowance for loan losses through charges to the provision for loan losses if anticipated growth in the Bank's loan portfolio increases or other circumstances warrant. Although the Bank maintains its allowance for loan losses at a level which it considers to be sufficient to provide for potential loan losses in its existing loan portfolio, there can be no assurance that future loan losses will not exceed internal estimates. In addition, the amount of the allowance for loan losses is subject to review by regulatory agencies which can order the establishment of additional loan loss provisions.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income increased $172,756 (20%) for the three months ended March 31, 2013 when compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Gains on investment securities for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $88,801 compared to $37,529 during the same period in 2012. Losses on foreclosed assets were $72,345 for the quarter compared to $101,109 for the same period in 2012. Gain on sale of loans increased $69,579 (19%) for the three months ended March 31, 2013 when compared to the same period in 2012 due to increased volume from loan originations in the Company's mortgage division.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense increased $378,092 (9%) for the three months ended March 31, 2013 when compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012.

The primary factor for the increase in noninterest expense was a charge of $231,000 relating to losses on three customer deposit accounts. The Company considers this a one-time charge and the Company has made a claim to its insurance carrier for a partial recovery. Also, salaries and employee benefits increased $57,266 (2%) for the three months ended March 31, 2013 when compared to the same period in 2012 primarily due to normal staff pay increases and increased health care costs.


Provision for Income Taxes

The increase in the provision for income taxes is a direct result of the increase in the Company's taxable income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Nonperforming Assets

The allowance for loan losses is calculated based upon an evaluation of pertinent factors underlying the various types and quality of the Bank's existing loan portfolio. When making such evaluation, management considers such factors as the repayment status of its loans, the estimated net realizable value of the underlying collateral, borrowers' intent (to the extent known by the Bank) and ability to repay the loan, local economic conditions and the Bank's historical loss ratios. The allowance for loan losses, as a percentage of nonperforming loans outstanding, as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 was 51.8% and 57.0%, respectively. Total loans classified as substandard, doubtful or loss as of March 31, 2013, were $21.2 million or 3.27% of total assets as compared to $21.7 million, or 3.28% of total assets at December 31, 2012. Management considered nonperforming and total classified loans in evaluating the adequacy of the Bank's allowance for loan losses.

The ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets is another useful tool in evaluating exposure to credit risk. Nonperforming assets of the Bank include nonperforming loans and assets which have been acquired as a result of foreclosure or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure. All dollar amounts are in thousands.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity refers to the ability to manage future cash flows to meet the needs of depositors and borrowers and fund operations. Maintaining appropriate levels of liquidity allows the Company to have sufficient funds available for customer demand for loans, withdrawal of deposit balances and maturities of deposits and other liabilities. The Company's primary sources of liquidity include cash and cash equivalents, customer deposits and Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines borrowings. The Company also has established borrowing lines available from the Federal Reserve Bank which is considered a secondary source of funds.

The Company's most liquid assets are cash and cash equivalents, which are cash on hand, amounts due from financial institutions, and certificates of deposit with other financial institutions that have an original maturity of three months or less. The levels of such assets are dependent on the Bank's operating, financing, and investment activities at any given time. The Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $42,694,971 as of March 31, 2013 and $41,663,405 as of December 31, 2012, representing an increase of $1,031,566. The variations in levels of cash and cash equivalents are influenced by many factors but primarily loan originations and payments, deposit flows and anticipated future deposit flows, which are subject to, and influenced by, many factors.

The Bank's capital ratios are above the levels required to be considered a well-capitalized financial institution. As of March 31, 2013, the Bank's Tier 1 leverage ratio was 9.77%, its Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 13.10% and the Bank's total risk-based capital ratio was 14.35% - all exceeding the minimums of 5%, 6% and 10%, respectively.


With regards to the Series A Preferred Stock, if the Company is unable to redeem the stock by January 2014, the cost of capital to the Company will increase significantly from 5% per annum ($600,000 annually) to 9% per annum ($1,080,000 annually). Depending on the Company's financial condition at the time, the increase in the annual dividend rate on the Series A Preferred Stock could have a material adverse effect on the Company's liquidity and net income available to common stockholders.
