Broadway Financial Corporation Reports Net Earnings for Second Quarter 2012

Broadway Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (NASDAQ Capital Market: BYFC), parent company of Broadway Federal Bank, f.s.b. (the “Bank”), today reported net earnings of $1.7 million, or $0.81 per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of ($1.7) million, or ($1.15) per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2011. Earnings available to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2012 was $1.4 million, compared to a loss of ($2.0) million for the second quarter of 2011.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company reported net earnings of $1.9 million, or $0.73 per diluted common share compared to a net loss of ($1.9) million, or ($1.39) per diluted common share for the same period in 2011. Earnings available to common shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1.3 million, compared to a loss of ($2.4) million for the same period in 2011.

The increase from a net loss to net earnings for both the second quarter and first half primarily reflected lower provisions for loan losses and a gain on the sale of our headquarters building during June. In addition, net earnings for the second quarter and first half benefited from lower provisions for losses on REO and lower non-interest expenses.

Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Kent Bradshaw stated, “Our results for the first half indicate that we are making progress in improving our portfolio, and building our capital. In addition, with the forthcoming filing of our Form 10Q for the second quarter, we will be current with our filings, which will assist us in executing our previously announced Recapitalization Plan. Also, I am pleased to state that as of June 30th, the Bank’s Total Risk-Based Capital ratio was 13.34% and its Core Capital and Tangible Capital ratios were 8.57%.”

Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Summary

For the second quarter of 2012, our net interest income before provision for loan losses was $3.5 million, which represented a decrease of $938 thousand, or 21%, from the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in net interest income was primarily attributable to a decrease in average interest-earning assets, combined with a decrease in net interest margin.

Average interest-earning assets for the second quarter of 2012 decreased $64.4 million to $395.3 million from $459.7 million for the second quarter of 2011, which resulted in a $1.1 million reduction in interest income. The decline in average interest-earning assets, primarily loans receivable, reflects our strategy throughout 2011 and 2012 to maintain our capital ratios above the required regulatory thresholds, in part by shrinking total assets. Additionally, the annualized yield on our average interest-earning assets decreased 39 basis points to 5.25% for the second quarter of 2012, compared to the annualized yield of 5.64% for the same period a year ago. The 39 basis point decline in the annualized yield on our average interest-earning assets resulted in a decrease of $159 thousand in interest income. Continued higher levels of non-performing loans contributed to the decline in the annualized yield on our interest-earning assets.

Average interest-bearing liabilities for the second quarter of 2012 decreased $52.6 million to $376.7 million from $429.3 million for the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities resulted in a $209 thousand reduction in interest expense. The annualized cost of our average interest-bearing liabilities decreased 11 basis points to 1.80% for the second quarter of 2012 from 1.91% for the same period a year ago, and resulted in a decrease of $144 thousand in interest expense.

The provision for loan losses for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $102 thousand, compared to $3.4 million for the same period a year ago. The provision for loan losses decreased as a result of our loan portfolio shrinking by $14.0 million during the second quarter of 2012 and by lower charge-offs. During the second quarter, we increased the general valuation allowance on our church loan portfolio to reflect continued elevated delinquencies and lower valuations on collateral dependent church loans.

Non-interest income for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $2.7 million, compared to $199 thousand for the second quarter of 2011. The $2.5 million increase from the second quarter of 2011 was due to a $2.5 million gain on the sale of our headquarters building. During the quarter, non-interest income also benefited from a $50 thousand gain on a sale of securities and lower net losses on sales of REOs, which were partially offset by lower service charges for loan-related fees and retail banking fees.

Non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $3.6 million, compared to $4.1 million for the second quarter of 2011. Lower non-interest expense in the second quarter of 2012 was primarily due to lower provision for losses on REO, lower professional services expense and lower FDIC insurance expense resulting from asset shrinkage.

Balance Sheet Summary

Total assets were $390.9 million at June 30, 2012, which represented a decrease of $22.8 million, or 5.5%, from December 31, 2011. During the first six months of 2012, net loans decreased by $27.4 million, loans held for sale decreased by $409 thousand, securities decreased by $3.3 million, REO decreased by $3.2 million, office properties and equipment decreased by $1.9 million and deferred tax assets decreased by $850 thousand, while cash and cash equivalents increased by $14.5 million. As of June 30, 2012, our deferred tax assets have been fully reserved.

Our gross loan portfolio decreased by $26.7 million to $313.1 million at June 30, 2012 from $339.8 million at December 31, 2011, as loan repayments, foreclosures and charge-offs exceeded loan originations during the first six months of 2012. The decrease in our loan portfolio primarily consisted of a $9.8 million decrease in our five or more units residential real estate loan portfolio, a $6.9 million decrease in our commercial real estate loan portfolio, a $2.8 million decrease in our one-to-four family residential real estate loan portfolio, a $2.6 million decrease in our church loan portfolio, a $2.8 million decrease in our construction loan portfolio, a $1.0 million decrease in our commercial loan portfolio, and a $798 thousand decrease in our consumer loan portfolio.

Loan originations for the first six months of 2012 totaled $11.3 million, compared to $2.3 million for the first six months of 2011. Loan repayments for the first six months of 2012 totaled $34.7 million, compared to $12.8 million for the comparable period in 2011. The increase in loan repayments was primarily attributable to a higher level of refinancings by borrowers who could take advantage of historically low interest rates and new financing opportunities in the stabilized commercial and single family markets. Loans transferred to REO during the first six months of 2012 totaled $2.7 million, compared to $6.4 million during the first six months of 2011. There were no loans transferred to loans held for sale during the first six months of 2012, compared to $1.1 million of loans transferred to loans held for sale during the first six months of 2011.

Loans held for sale decreased from $13.0 million at December 31, 2011 to $12.6 million at June 30, 2012. The $409 thousand decrease during the first six months of 2012 was primarily due to loan repayments and charge-offs.

Deposits totaled $270.0 million at June 30, 2012, down $24.6 million, or 8%, from year-end 2011. During the first six months of 2012, core deposits (NOW, demand, money market and passbook accounts) decreased by $2.8 million and represented 35% of total deposits at June 30, 2012, compared to 33% at December 31, 2011. Our certificates of deposit (“CDs”) decreased by $21.8 million during the first six months of 2012 and represented 65% of total deposits at June 30, 2012, compared to 67% at December 31, 2011. Brokered deposits represented 1% and 3% of total deposits at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

Since year-end 2011, FHLB borrowings remained unchanged at $83.0 million and were equal to 21% and 20% of total assets at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. During the second quarter of 2012, $13.5 million of FHLB advances were restructured which resulted in a decrease of the weighted average cost of advances from 3.09% at December 31, 2011 to 2.56% at June 30, 2012.

Stockholders' equity was $19.7 million, or 5% of the Company’s total assets, at June 30, 2012. At June 30, 2012, the Bank’s Total Risk-Based Capital ratio was 13.34%, its Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital ratio was 12.02%, and its Core Capital and Tangible Capital ratios were 8.57%.

As previously announced, the Company is currently implementing a Recapitalization Plan to increase capital and reduce debt and senior securities, including a sale of additional common stock and exchanges of preferred stock for common stock at a discount to the preferred stock’s liquidation preference amount, to further strengthen the Company’s capital ratios and position the Bank for future growth.

Asset Quality

Non-performing assets (“NPAs”) include non-accrual loans and real estate owned through foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure (“REO”). NPAs at June 30, 2012 were $48.3 million, or 12.35% of total assets, compared to $51.4 million, or 12.43% of total assets, at December 31, 2011. At June 30, 2012, non-accrual loans were $44.7 million compared to $44.7 million at December 31, 2011. These loans consist of delinquent loans that are 90 days or more past due and troubled debt restructurings (“TDRs”) that do not qualify for accrual status.

The non-accrual loans at June 30, 2012 included 34 church loans totaling $25.2 million, 22 one-to-four family residential real estate loans totaling $8.7 million, 14 commercial real estate loans totaling $6.1 million, 9 five or more units residential real estate loans totaling $4.3 million, a land loan for $292 thousand, and a consumer loan for $70 thousand.

During the first six months of 2012, REO decreased by $3.2 million to $3.5 million at June 30, 2012, from $6.7 million at the end of 2011. At June 30, 2012, the Bank’s REO consisted of two one-to-four family residential properties, and eight commercial real estate properties, seven of which are church buildings. As part of our efforts to reduce non-performing assets, we sold seven REO properties for total proceeds of $5.9 million, and recorded a corresponding net gain of $395 thousand, during the first six months of 2012.

At June 30, 2012 our allowance for loan losses was $17.9 million, or 5.70% of our gross loans receivable, compared to $17.3 million, or 5.09% of our gross loans, at year-end 2011. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to NPLs, excluding loans held for sale, increased to 45.17% at June 30, 2012, compared to 44.20% at year-end 2011. As of June 30, 2012, 67% of our NPLs had been written down to their adjusted fair value less estimated selling costs, by establishing specific reserves or charged-off as necessary. On the remaining 33% of NPLs, the fair value of collateral less estimated selling costs exceeded the recorded investment in the loan and did not require specific reserves or charge-offs.

Impaired loans at June 30, 2012 were $57.2 million, compared to $56.3 million at December 31, 2011. Specific reserves for impaired loans were $3.8 million, or 6.67% of the aggregate impaired loan amount at June 30, 2012, compared to $3.9 million, or 7.00%, at December 31, 2011. Excluding specific reserves for impaired loans, our coverage ratio (general allowance as a percentage of total non-impaired loans) was 5.49% at June 30, 2012, compared to 4.71% at December 31, 2011.

Loan charge-offs during the first six months of 2012 were $800 thousand, or 0.47% of average loans, compared to $2.9 million, or 1.38% of average loans, during the first six months of 2011. Most of the $800 thousand of charge-offs were not reserved for at year-end 2011 and were primarily related to loans that became impaired during the first six months of 2012 and with respect to which recent valuations of the underlying collateral reflected impairment losses. Charge-offs in church loans totaled $387 thousand and represented 49% of charge-offs during 2012. Charge-offs in one-to-four family residential real estate loans totaled $355 thousand and represented 44% of charge-offs during 2012. Charge-offs in commercial real estate loans totaled $58 thousand and represented 7% of charge-offs during 2012.
