Annual Report

Item 7. Management's Discussion And Analysis Of Financial Condition And Results Of Operation

This section is intended to help investors understand the financial performance of Hampden Bancorp, Inc. and its subsidiaries through a discussion of the factors affecting the Company's financial condition at June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012 and the Company's consolidated results of operations for the years ended June 30, 2013, 2012 and 2011. This section should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes to the consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements herein constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on the beliefs and expectations of management, as well as the assumptions made using information currently available to management. Because these statements reflect the views of management concerning future events, these statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. As a result, actual results may differ from those contemplated by these statements. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They often include words like "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "estimate", and "intend" or future or conditional verbs such as "will", "would", "should", "could", or "may." Certain factors that could have a material adverse affect on the operations of Hampden Bank include, but are not limited to, increased competitive pressure among financial service companies, national and regional economic conditions, changes in interest rates, changes in consumer spending, borrowing and savings habits, legislative and regulatory changes, monetary and fiscal policies of the U.S. Government, including policies of the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve Board, adverse changes in the securities markets, inability of key third-party providers to perform their obligations to Hampden Bank and changes in relevant accounting principles and guidelines. These risks and uncertainties should be considered in evaluating forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether in response to new information, future events or otherwise.


Income. The Company's results of operations are primarily dependent on net interest income, which is the difference between the income earned on its loan and investment portfolios and interest expense incurred on its deposits and borrowed funds. Results of operations are also affected by fee income from banking and non-banking operations, provisions for loan losses, gains (losses) on sales of loans and securities available for sale, loan servicing income and other miscellaneous income.

Expenses. The Company's expenses consist primarily of compensation and employee benefits, office occupancy, technology, marketing, general administrative expenses and income tax expense.

Results of operations are also significantly affected by general economic and competitive conditions, particularly with respect to changes in interest rates, government policies and actions of regulatory authorities. Future changes in applicable law, regulations or government policies may materially impact the Company's financial condition and results of operations. See "Risk Factors."

Dividend. On August 6, 2013 the Company announced that its Board of Directors had declared a cash dividend of $0.06 per common share. The dividend was paid on August 30, 2013 to shareholders of record as of August 16, 2013.

Critical Accounting Policies

We consider accounting policies that require management to exercise significant judgment or discretion, or make significant assumptions that have or could have a material impact on the carrying value of certain assets, liabilities, revenue, expenses, or related disclosures, to be critical accounting policies.

Management believes that the following accounting estimates are the most critical to aid in fully understanding and evaluating our reported financial results, and they require management's most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, resulting from the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. Management has reviewed these critical accounting estimates and related disclosures with the Audit Committee of our Board.

Other-Than-Temporary Impairment of Investment Securities.

Critical Estimates. One of the significant estimates related to available for sale securities is the evaluation of investments for other-than-temporary impairment. If a decline in the fair value of an equity security is judged to be other-than-temporary, a charge is recorded equal to the difference between the fair value and cost basis of the security. Following such write-down in value, the fair value of the other-than-temporarily impaired investment becomes its new cost basis.

Declines in fair value of securities below their cost that are deemed to be other than temporary are reflected in earnings as realized losses. In estimating other-than-temporary impairment losses, impairment is required to be recognized (1) if we intend to sell the security, (2) if it is "more likely than not" that we will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis, or (3) for debt securities the present value of expected cash flows is not sufficient to recover the entire amortized cost basis. For all impaired available-for-sale debt securities that we intend to sell, or likely will be required to sell, the full amount of the other-than-temporary impairment is recognized through earnings. For all other impaired available-for-sale debt securities, credit-related impairment is recognized through earnings, while non-credit related impairment is recognized in other comprehensive income, net of applicable taxes. Marketable equity securities are evaluated for OTTI based on the severity and duration of the impairment and, if deemed to be other than temporary, the declines in fair value are reflected in earnings as realized losses.

Judgment and Uncertainties. The evaluation of securities for impairment is a quantitative and qualitative process, which is subject to risks and uncertainties and is intended to determine whether declines in the fair value of investments should be recognized in current period earnings. The risks and uncertainties include changes in general economic conditions, the issuer's financial condition or future prospects, the effects of changes in interest rates or credit spreads and the expected recovery period. Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment at least on a quarterly basis and more frequently when economic or market conditions warrant such evaluation.

Effect if Actual Results Differ from Assumptions. If actual results are not consistent with management's estimates or assumptions, we may be exposed to a other-than-temporary impairment loss that could be material and could have a negative impact on the company's earnings.

Allowance for Loan Losses.

Critical Estimates. The allowance for loan losses is established as losses are estimated to have occurred through a provision for loan losses charged to earnings. Loan losses are charged against the allowance when management believes the uncollectibility of a loan balance is confirmed. Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance.

The allowance for loan losses is evaluated on a quarterly basis by management. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available.

The analysis of the allowance for loan losses has two components: specific and general allocations, which are further described below.

Specific allocation

Specific allocations are made for loans determined to be impaired. Impairment is measured by determining the present value of expected future cash flows or, for collateral-dependent loans, the fair value of the collateral adjusted for market conditions and selling expenses. The Company charges off any collateral shortfall on collaterally dependent impaired loans.

General allocation

The general allocation is determined by segregating the remaining loans, by type of loan and payment history. We analyze historical loss experience, and qualitative factors such as delinquency trends, changes in our underwriting standards as well as in lending policies, procedures and practices, experience and depth of management and lending staff, and general economic conditions. This analysis establishes loss factors that are applied to the loan groups to determine the amount of the general allocations. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires material estimates that may be susceptible to significant revisions based upon changes in economic and real estate market conditions. Actual loan losses may be significantly more than the allowance for loan losses we have established which could have a material negative effect on our financial results. There were no changes in the Company's policies or methodology pertaining to the general component of the allowance for loan losses during the year ended June 30, 2013.

On a quarterly basis, management's Loan Review Committee reviews the current status of various loan assets in order to evaluate the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses. In this evaluation process, specific loans are analyzed to determine their potential risk of loss. This process concentrates on non-accrual and classified loans with risk ratings of six or higher. Any loan determined to be impaired is evaluated for potential loss exposure. Any shortfall results in a charge-off if the likelihood of loss is evaluated as probable. The Company's policy for charging off uncollectible loans is based on an analysis of the financial condition of the borrower or the collateral value. To determine the adequacy of collateral on a particular loan, an estimate of the fair market value of the collateral is based on the most current appraised value, discounted cash flow valuation or other available information.

When 1-4 family residential mortgage loans become impaired, the collateral value is generally determined by obtaining the current tax assessed value, discounted by 20%. As a practical expedient the Company believes this is a reliable source of valuation as assessments are periodically updated by the cities and towns. If the impaired loan is being actively marketed, the Company uses the realtor's market analysis or listing price discounted by 10% and less 5% for realtor commission, instead of the tax assessment. We apply a discount based on management's historical knowledge, expertise and/or to account for changes in market conditions from the time of valuation. In the event the Company has an appraisal on hand that is less than twelve months old, then the Company will use that appraisal to determine the collateral value.

For commercial real estate loans, the Company obtains an appraisal when the loan is originated. An updated appraisal is obtained by the Company if the loan becomes impaired and if the Company will use the collateral dependency method to measure the impairment. An updated appraisal is also obtained as well if the loan goes into foreclosure. On a quarterly basis, management's Loan Review Committee reviews non-accrual and classified loans and ensures that all collateral dependent impaired loans have current appraisals within the preceding eighteen months. Because the appraisals are current, adjustments are limited in nature. There are situations where the Company may make adjustments to the appraisal in which the Company may decrease the appraised value if facts and circumstances warrant. The Company does not make any adjustments that would increase the appraised value.

Judgment and Uncertainties. The qualitative factors are assessed based on the various risk characteristics of each loan segment. Risk characteristics relevant to each portfolio segment are as follows:

Residential real estate - The Company generally does not originate loans with a loan-to-value ratio greater than 80 percent unless there is private mortgage insurance. All loans in this segment are collateralized by 1-4 family residential real estate and repayment is dependent on the credit quality of the individual borrower. The overall health of the economy, including unemployment rates and housing prices, will have an effect on the credit quality in this segment.

Commercial real estate - Loans in this segment are primarily income-producing properties throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut. The underlying cash flows generated by the properties can be adversely impacted by a downturn in the economy as evidenced by increased vacancy rates, which in turn, will have an effect on the credit quality in this segment. Management requires annual borrower financial statements, obtains rent rolls annually and continually monitors the cash flows of these loans.

Home equity loans - Loans in this segment are secured by first or second mortgages on 1-4 family owner occupied properties, and are generally underwritten in amounts such that the combined first and second mortgage balances generally do not exceed 85% of the value of the property serving as collateral at time of origination. Under our current underwriting standards, loan originations are made in amounts such that balances do not exceed 85% of the value of the property serving as collateral at time of origination. The lines-of-credit are available to be drawn upon for 10 to 20 years, at the end of which time they become term loans amortized over 5 to 10 years. Interest rates on home equity lines normally adjust based on the month-end prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal.

Residential construction loans - Loans in this segment primarily include non-speculative real estate loans. All loans in this segment are collateralized by 1-4 family residential real estate and repayment is dependent on the credit quality of the individual borrower. The overall health of the economy, including unemployment rates and housing prices, will have an effect on the credit quality in this segment.

Commercial construction loans - Loans in this segment primarily include construction to permanent non-speculative real estate loans. The underlying cash flows generated by the properties are adversely impacted by a downturn in the economy, which in turn, will have an effect on the credit quality in this segment. Additionally, risk of loss is impacted by the accuracy of the initial estimate of the property's rate of absorption, value and the estimated cost of construction.

Commercial loans - Loans in this segment are made to businesses and are generally secured by assets of the business. Repayment is expected from the cash flows of the business. A weakened economy, and resultant decreased consumer spending, will have an effect on the credit quality in this segment.

Automobile and other secured loans - Loans in this segment include consumer non-real estate secured loans that the Company originates as well as automobile loans that the Company purchases from third parties. The Company has the ability to select the automobile loans it purchases based on its own underwriting standards.

Manufactured home loans - Loans in this segment are secured by first liens on properties located primarily in the Northeast. Repayment is dependent on the credit quality of the individual borrower. The overall health of the economy, including unemployment rates, will have an effect on the credit quality in this segment.

Other consumer loans - Loans in this segment are generally unsecured and repayment is dependent on the credit quality of the individual borrower.

Effect if Actual Results Differ from Assumptions. Although we believe we have established and maintained the allowance for loan losses at adequate levels, additions may be necessary if the current operating environment continues or deteriorates. Management uses the best information available; however, the level of the allowance for loan losses remains an estimate that is subject to significant judgment and short-term change. In addition, the FDIC and the Massachusetts Department of Banking, as an integral part of their examination process, will periodically review our allowance for loan losses. Such agencies may require us to recognize adjustments to the allowance based on their judgments about information available to them at the time of their examination.

Income Taxes.

Critical Estimates. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are reflected at currently enacted income tax rates applicable to the period in which the deferred tax assets or liabilities are expected to be realized or settled. Quarterly, management reviews the deferred tax asset to identify any uncertainties to the collectability of the components of the deferred tax asset.

Judgment and Uncertainties. In determining the deferred tax asset valuation allowance, we use historical and forecasted operating results, based upon approved business plans, including a review of the eligible carryforward periods, tax planning opportunities and other relevant considerations. Management believes that the accounting estimate related to the valuation allowance is a critical accounting estimate because the underlying assumptions can change from period to period. For example, tax law changes or variances in future projected operating performance could result in a change in the valuation allowance.

Effect if Actual Results Differ from Assumptions. Should actual factors and conditions differ materially from those used by management, the actual realization of net deferred tax assets or deferred tax liabilities could differ materially from the amounts recorded in the financial statements. If we were not able to realize all or part of our net deferred tax assets in the future, and adjustment to our deferred tax assets valuation allowance would be charged to income tax expense in the period such determination was made and could have a negative impact on the company's earnings. In addition, if actual factors and conditions differ materially from those used by management, the Company could incur penalties and interest imposed by the Internal Revenue Service.

Average Balance Sheet and Analysis of Net Interest and Dividend Income

Net interest income represents the difference between income on interest-earning assets and expense on interest-bearing liabilities. Net interest income depends upon the relative amounts of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, and the interest rates earned or paid on them.

The following tables set forth average balance sheets, average yields and costs, and certain other information for the periods indicated. All average balances are daily average balances. The yields set forth below include the effect of deferred fees, and discounts and premiums that are amortized or accreted to interest income or expense. The Company does not accrue interest on loans on non-accrual status, however, the balance of these loans is included in the total average balance, which has the effect of lowering average loan yields.

The following table presents the dollar amount of changes in interest income and interest expense for the major categories of the Company's interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities. Information is provided for each category of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities with respect to (i) changes attributable to changes in volume (i.e., changes in average balances multiplied by the prior-period average rate) and (ii) changes attributable to rate (i.e., changes in average rate multiplied by prior-period average balances). Changes attributable to changes in both rate and volume have been allocated proportionally based on the absolute value of the change due to rate and the change due to volume.
