HMN Financial, Inc. (HMN or the Company) (NASDAQ:HMNF), the $670 million holding company for Home Federal Savings Bank (the Bank), today reported net income of $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2012, an improvement of $2.7 million, or 117.2%, compared to a net loss of $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2011. The net loss available to common shareholders was $69,000 for the second quarter of 2012, an improvement of $2.7 million, or 97.5%, from the net loss available to common shareholders of $2.8 million for the second quarter of 2011. Diluted loss per common share for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.02, an improvement of $0.70, or 97.2%, from the diluted loss per common share of $0.72 for the second quarter of 2011. The improvement in net income in the second quarter of 2012 was primarily due to a $2.4 million decrease in the provision for loan losses and a $1.1 million decrease in non-interest expenses between the periods. These changes to net income were partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in net interest income due primarily to the decrease in interest earning assets between the periods.

President’s Statement
“We are pleased to report net income for the second quarter of 2012 and the continued reduction in our non-performing assets,” said Bradley Krehbiel, President of HMN. “We will continue to focus our efforts on increasing our core deposit relationships while reducing non-performing assets and expenses. We believe that, over time, our focus on these areas will be effective in generating improved financial results.”

Second Quarter Results

Net Interest Income
Net interest income was $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of $1.0 million, or 13.6%, compared to $7.0 million for the second quarter of 2011. Interest income was $8.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of $2.0 million, or 20.8%, from $10.0 million for the same period in 2011. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of a $152 million decrease in the average interest-earning assets and also because of a decrease in average yields between the periods. Average interest earning assets decreased between the periods primarily because of a decrease in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred because of declining loan demand and the Company’s focus on improving credit quality, managing net interest margin and improving capital ratios. The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 4.90% for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of 16 basis points from the 5.06% average yield for the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in average yield is due to the continued low interest rate environment that existed during the second quarter of 2012.

Interest expense was $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 37.5%, compared to $3.0 million for the second quarter of 2011. Interest expense decreased primarily because of the $157 million decrease in the average interest-bearing liabilities between the periods. The decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities is primarily the result of a decrease in the outstanding borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits between the periods and a decrease in other deposits as a result of the Bank’s Toledo, Iowa branch sale that was completed in the first quarter of 2012. The decrease in borrowings and brokered deposits between the periods was the result of using the proceeds from loan principal payments to fund maturing borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits. Interest expense also decreased because of the lower interest rates paid on money market accounts and certificates of deposits. The decreased rates were the result of the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the second quarter of 2012. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 1.24% for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of 36 basis points from the 1.60% average interest rate paid in the second quarter of 2011. Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) for the second quarter of 2012 was 3.72%, an increase of 24 basis points, compared to 3.48% for the second quarter of 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses
The provision for loan losses was $1.1 million for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of $2.4 million, or 68.6%, from $3.5 million for the second quarter of 2011. The provision for loan losses decreased in the second quarter of 2012 primarily because there were fewer decreases in the estimated value of the underlying collateral supporting commercial real estate loans that required additional allowances or charge offs in the current period when compared to the second quarter of 2011. The provision also decreased because of a decrease in the required reserves for certain risk rated commercial loans as a result of an internal loan portfolio analysis that was performed between the periods. Total non-performing assets were $38.1 million at June 30, 2012, a decrease of $8.5 million, or 18.2%, from $46.6 million at March 31, 2012. Non-performing loans decreased $7.6 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $0.9 million during the second quarter of 2012. The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for the second quarter of 2012 was as follows:

June 30, 2012 $ 25,380 June 30, 2012 $ 12,732

The decrease in non-performing loans during the quarter relates primarily to principal payments received and charge offs during the period. Of the $5.3 million in principal payments received during the second quarter of 2012, $2.4 million related to the payoff of a non-performing commercial real estate loan secured by an office building and $1.1 million related to the payoff of a non-performing bank stock loan. The largest remaining non-performing loan at June 30, 2012 was for $2.5 million and is secured by a residential development located in the Bank’s primary market.

The decrease in non-performing commercial business loans during the second quarter of 2012 is primarily related to the charge off of $1.6 million on a non-performing commercial business loan in the utilities industry and $1.1 million related to the payoff of a non-performing bank stock loan during the second quarter of 2012.

Non-Interest Income and Expense
Non-interest income was $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of $0.2 million, or 12.9%, from $1.6 million for the same period in 2011. Gains on sales of loans increased $0.3 million between the periods primarily as a result of increased single family loan originations due to the low interest rate environment that continued to exist in the second quarter of 2012. Fees and service charges decreased $91,000 primarily because of a decrease in overdraft charges between the periods.

Non-interest expense was $6.4 million for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 15.1%, from $7.5 million for the same period of 2011. Other non-interest expense decreased $0.7 million primarily because of decreased real estate taxes and legal fees related to other real estate owned. Compensation and benefits decreased $0.3 million between the periods primarily because of a decrease in employees between the periods. Deposit insurance costs decreased $0.1 million primarily because of a decrease in assets between the periods.

The effect of income taxes changed $76,000 between the periods, from a benefit of $76,000 in the second quarter of 2011 to no expense in the second quarter of 2012. 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 June 30, 2012. Since the valuation reserve is established against the entire deferred tax asset balance, no income tax expense was recorded for the second quarter of 2012. The income tax benefit in the second quarter of 2011 relates to the reversal of the taxes on the change in the fair market value of the available for sale investment portfolio that was recorded in the first quarter of 2011.

Net Loss Available to Common Shareholders
The net loss available to common shareholders was $69,000 for the second quarter of 2012, an improvement of $2.6 million from the $2.7 million net loss available to common shareholders in the second quarter of 2011. The net loss available to common shareholders decreased primarily because of the change in the net income (loss) between the periods. The Company has deferred the last six quarterly dividend payments, beginning with the February 15, 2011 dividend payment, on its Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A issued to the United States Treasury Department as part of the TARP Capital Purchase Program. The deferred dividend payments have been accrued for payment in the future and are being reported for the deferral period as a preferred dividend requirement that is deducted from income for financial statement purposes to arrive at the net income (loss) available to common shareholders. Under the terms of the certificate of designations for the preferred stock, dividend payments may be deferred without default, but the dividend is cumulative and, since the Company failed to pay dividends for six quarters, the Treasury has the right to appoint two representatives to the Company’s board of directors, although the Treasury has not yet exercised this right. Under the terms of the Company’s and Bank’s Supervisory Agreements with their federal banking regulators, neither the Company nor the Bank may declare or pay any cash dividends, or purchase or redeem any capital stock, without prior notice to, and consent of these regulators. The Company does not anticipate requesting consent from the Federal Reserve Board to make any payments of dividends on, or purchase of, its common or preferred stock in 2012.

Return (Loss) on Assets and Equity
Return on average assets for the second quarter of 2012 was 0.23%, compared to a 1.08% loss on average assets for the second quarter of 2011. Return on average equity was 2.66% for the second quarter of 2012, compared to a 13.27% loss for the same period in 2011. Book value per common share at June 30, 2012 was $7.79, compared to $9.81 at June 30, 2011.

Six Month Period Results

Net Income (Loss)
Net income was $3.2 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, an improvement of $5.1 million, or 270.7%, compared to the net loss of $1.9 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. The net income available to common shareholders was $2.3 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, an improvement of $5.1 million, or 181.8%, compared to the net loss available to common shareholders of $2.8 million for the same period of 2011. Diluted earnings per share for the six month period in 2012 was $0.57, an improvement of $1.30 per share compared to the diluted loss per share of $0.73 for the same period in 2011. The improvement in net income for the six month period in 2012 was primarily due to a $4.4 million decrease in the provision for loan losses, $1.7 million decrease in non-interest expenses, $0.7 million increase in the gains recognized on the sales of loans, and a $0.6 million gain on sale of the Bank’s Toledo, Iowa branch. These changes to net income were partially offset by a $2.1 million decrease in net interest income due primarily to the decrease in interest earning assets between the periods.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income was $12.3 million for the first six months of 2012, a decrease of $2.1 million, or 15.1%, from $14.4 million for the same period in 2011. Interest income was $16.2 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, a decrease of $4.6 million, or 21.8%, from $20.8 million for the same six month period in 2011. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of a $139 million decrease in the average interest-earning assets and also because of a decrease in average yields between the periods. Average interest-earning assets decreased between the periods primarily because of a decrease in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred because of declining loan demand and the Company’s focus on improving credit quality, managing net interest margin and improving capital ratios. The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 4.79% for the first six months of 2012, a decrease of 32 basis points from the 5.11% average yield for the first six months of 2011. The decrease in average yield is due to the continued low interest rate environment that existed during the first six months of 2012. Interest expense was $4.0 million for the first six months of 2012, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 37.2%, compared to $6.3 million for the first six months of 2011. Interest expense decreased primarily because of the $138 million decrease in the average interest-bearing liabilities between the periods. The decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities is primarily the result of a decrease in the outstanding borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits and a decrease in other deposits as a result of the branch sale that was completed in the first quarter of 2012. The decrease in borrowings and brokered deposits between the periods was the result of using the proceeds from loan principal payments to fund maturing borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits. Interest expense also decreased because of the lower interest rates paid on money market accounts and certificates of deposits. The decreased rates were the result of the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the first six months of 2012. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 1.23% for the first six months of 2012, a decrease of 39 basis points from the 1.62% average interest rate paid in the first six months of 2011. Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) for the first six months of 2012 was 3.62%, an increase of 7 basis points, compared to 3.55% for the first six months of 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses
The provision for loan losses was $1.0 million for the first six months of 2012, a decrease of $4.4 million, or 82.3%, from $5.4 million for the same six month period in 2011. The provision for loan losses decreased in the first six months of 2012 primarily because there were fewer decreases in the estimated value of the underlying collateral supporting commercial real estate loans that required additional allowances or charge offs in the current period when compared to the first six months of 2011. The provision also decreased because of a decrease in the required reserves for certain risk rated commercial loans as a result of an internal loan portfolio analysis that was performed between the periods. Total non-performing assets were $38.1 million at June 30, 2012, a decrease of $12.5 million, or 24.7%, from $50.6 million at December 31, 2011. Non-performing loans decreased $8.6 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $3.9 million during the first six months of 2012. The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for the first six months of 2012 was as follows:

The decrease in non-performing loans during the first six months of 2012 relates primarily to charge offs and principal payments received during the period. Of the $6.9 million in charge offs during the period, $2.2 million related to a commercial development loan and $1.2 million related to two residential development loans that were charged off as a result of obtaining updated appraisals of the underlying collateral.

Non-Interest Income and Expense
Non-interest income was $4.5 million for the first six months of 2012, an increase of $1.1 million, or 33.3%, from $3.4 million for the first six months of 2011. Gains on sales of loans increased $0.7 million between the periods primarily as a result of increased single family loan originations due to the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the first six months of 2012. Gain on sale of branch office increased $0.6 million as a result of the sale of the Toledo, Iowa branch in the first quarter of 2012. Fees and service charges decreased $0.2 million primarily because of a decrease in overdraft charges between the periods.

Non-interest expense was $12.6 million for the first six months of 2012, a decrease of $1.7 million, or 11.8%, from $14.3 million for the same period of 2011. Other non-interest expense decreased $0.9 million because of decreased real estate taxes and legal fees related to other real estate owned. Compensation and benefits decreased $0.4 million primarily because of a decrease in employees between the periods. Deposit insurance costs decreased $0.2 million primarily because of a decrease in assets between the periods. Occupancy expense decreased $0.1 million between the periods primarily because of a decrease in depreciation expense. Loss on real estate owned decreased $0.1 million because of a decrease in the gains recognized on the sale of real estate owned between the periods. Data processing costs increased $0.1 million between the periods primarily because of a one time incentive that was received by the Company in the first quarter of 2011 related to a change in our ATM and debit card vendor.

No income tax expense was recorded in the first six months of 2012 or 2011. 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 June 30, 2012. Since the valuation reserve is established against the entire deferred tax asset balance, no income tax expense was recorded for the first six months of 2012 or 2011.

The net income (loss) available to common shareholders improved primarily because of the change in the net income (loss) between the periods.

(1) Average balances were calculated based upon amortized cost without the market value impact of ASC 320.
(2) The OCC has established an individual minimum capital requirement (IMCR) for the Bank. An IMCR requires a bank to establish and maintain levels of capital greater than those generally required for a bank to be classified as “well-capitalized.” Effective December 31, 2011, the Bank was required to establish, and subsequently maintain, core capital at least equal to 8.5% of adjusted total assets. The Bank’s core capital ratio was in excess of this requirement at June 30, 2012.
