HMN Financial, Inc. (HMN or the Company) (NASDAQ:HMNF), the $644 million holding company for Home Federal Savings Bank (the Bank), today reported net income of $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, an improvement of $2.7 million, or 131.0%, compared to a net loss of $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2011. Net income available to common shareholders was $0.2 million for the third quarter of 2012, an improvement of $2.7 million, or 106.8%, from the net loss available to common shareholders of $2.5 million for the third quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per common share for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.04, an increase of $0.69, or 106.2%, from the diluted loss per common share of $0.65 for the third quarter of 2011. The improvement in net income for the third quarter of 2012 is due to a $2.7 million decrease in the provision for loan losses between the periods, a $0.6 million increase in noninterest income due primarily to an increase in the gain on sales of loans, and a $0.6 million decrease in noninterest expenses due primarily to the decrease in expenses related to real estate owned. These changes to net income were partially offset by a $1.2 million decrease in net interest income due primarily to a decrease in interest earning assets between the periods.

President’s Statement
“Our core business remains sound and we are encouraged by the increase in our net interest margin and the declining trend in both our loan loss provision and other operating expenses,” said Bradley Krehbiel, President of HMN. “The low rate environment for mortgage loans also continues to have a positive effect on our single family mortgage loan production and the related gain on sales of loans. We are pleased that the increase in non-interest income combined with the decrease in non-interest expense was able to offset the decline in our net interest income during the quarter as a result of the decline in our earning assets.”

Third Quarter Results

Net Interest Income
Net interest income was $5.9 million for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of $1.2 million, or 16.8%, compared to $7.1 million for the third quarter of 2011. Interest income was $7.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of $2.0 million, or 21.1%, from $9.6 million for the same period in 2011. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of a $145 million decrease in the average interest-earning assets and also because of a decrease in the 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 low 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 4.89% for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of 12 basis points from the 5.01% average yield for the third quarter of 2011. The decrease in the average yield is due to the continued low interest rate environment that existed during the third quarter of 2012.

Interest expense was $1.7 million for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 33.3%, compared to $2.5 million for the third quarter of 2011. Interest expense decreased primarily because of the $150 million decrease in the average interest-bearing liabilities between the periods. The decrease in the average interest-bearing liabilities is primarily the result of a decrease in the average outstanding certificates of deposits and brokered 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 certificates of deposits and brokered deposits between the periods was the result of using the proceeds from loan principal payments to fund maturing certificates of deposit and brokered 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 third quarter of 2012. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 1.14% for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of 22 basis points from the 1.36% average interest rate paid in the third quarter of 2011. Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest- earning assets) for the third quarter of 2012 was 3.82%, an increase of 11 basis points, compared to 3.71% for the third quarter of 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses
The provision for loan losses was $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of $2.7 million, compared to $4.3 million for the third quarter of 2011. The provision decreased in the third 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 third quarter of 2012 when compared to the third quarter of 2011. The provision also decreased because of the $123 million decrease in the loan portfolio between the periods. Total non-performing assets were $47.2 million at September 30, 2012, an increase of $3.4 million, or 7.7%, from $43.8 million at June 30, 2012. Non-performing loans increased $3.5 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $0.1 million during the third quarter of 2012. The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for the quarter was as follows:

September 30, 2012 $34,582 September 30, 2012 $12,617

The increase in non-performing loans relates primarily to new loans that were classified as non-performing during the quarter. Of the $11.2 million in loans classified as non-performing in the third quarter of 2012, $9.5 million related to three loans on two residential developments because the cash flows from lot sales were not sufficient to support the required principal payments on the loans. The largest non-performing loan relationship at September 30, 2012 was for $7.3 million and is secured by a residential development located in the Bank’s market area.

The increase in the non-performing commercial real estate loans from June 30, 2012 is due primarily to three loans on two residential developments totaling $9.5 million that were classified as non-performing during the third quarter of 2012 because the cash flows from lot sales were not sufficient to support the required principal payments on the loans.

Non-Interest Income and Expense
Non-interest income was $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $0.6 million, or 39.3%, from $1.5 million for the same period in 2011. Gains on sales of loans increased $0.8 million primarily because of an increase in single family loan originations and sales and also because of an increase in the sale of commercial government guaranteed loans between the periods. Fees and service charges decreased $0.2 million primarily because of a decrease in overdraft charges between the periods which was partly due to the reduction in deposit accounts as a result of the sale of the Toledo, Iowa branch in the first quarter of 2012.

Non-interest expense was $5.8 million for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 9.5%, from $6.4 million for the same period of 2011. Compensation and benefits expense decreased $0.3 million between the periods primarily because of a decrease in the compensation paid as a result of having fewer employees. Gain on real estate owned increased $0.3 million between the periods as there were more gains realized on the sale of real estate and there were fewer write downs in the value of the real estate owned in the third quarter of 2012 when compared to the same period in 2011. Occupancy expense decreased $0.1 million primarily because of a decrease in depreciation and other expenses as a result of having fewer branch facilities. Other non-interest expenses decreased $0.1 million primarily because of a decrease in the costs related to other real estate owned. Deposit insurance expense increased $0.2 million primarily because of an increase in the insurance rates between the periods.

No income tax expense was recorded for the third quarter of 2012 or the third quarter of 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 September 30, 2012. Since the valuation reserve is established against the entire deferred tax asset balance, no income tax expense was recorded for the third quarter of 2012 or 2011.

Net Income (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders
Net income available to common shareholders was $0.2 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $2.7 million from the $2.5 million net loss available to common shareholders in the third quarter of 2011. The net income available to common shareholders increased primarily because of the change in the net income (loss) between the periods. The Company has deferred the last seven 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 third quarter of 2012 was 0.39%, compared to a 1.02% loss on average assets for the third quarter of 2011. Return on average equity was 4.20% for the third quarter of 2012, compared to a 12.10% loss on average equity for the same period of 2011. Book value per common share at September 30, 2012 was $7.83, compared to $9.23 at September 30, 2011.

Nine Month Period Results

Net Income (Loss)
Net income was $3.8 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, an improvement of $7.7 million, from the $3.9 million net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011. Net income available to common shareholders was $2.4 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, an improvement of $7.7 million, from the net loss available to common shareholders of $5.3 million for the same period of 2011. Diluted earnings per common share for the nine-month period in 2012 was $0.61, an improvement of $1.99, from the diluted loss per common share of $1.38 for the same period in 2011. The improvement in net income for the first nine months of 2012 is due to a $7.1 million decrease in the provision for loan losses between the periods, a $0.6 million gain on sale of the Bank’s Toledo, Iowa branch, a $1.5 million increase in the gain on sales of loans, and a $2.3 million decrease in noninterest expenses due primarily to the decrease in expenses related to real estate owned. These improvements to net income were partially offset by a $3.4 million decrease in net interest income due primarily to a decrease in interest earning assets between the periods.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income was $18.2 million for the first nine months of 2012, a decrease of $3.3 million, or 15.7%, from $21.5 million for the same period in 2011. Interest income was $23.8 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $6.5 million, or 21.6%, from $30.3 million for the same period in 2011. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of a $141 million decrease in the average interest-earning assets and also because of a decrease in the average yields earned 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 low 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 4.82% for the nine-month period of 2012, a decrease of 26 basis points from the 5.08% average yield for the nine-month period of 2011. The decrease in the average yield is due to the continued low interest rate environment that existed during the first nine months of 2012.

Interest expense was $5.6 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $3.2 million, or 36.1%, from $8.8 million for the same period in 2011. Interest expense decreased primarily because of a $142 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 average outstanding certificates of deposit and brokered deposits between the periods. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 1.20% for the nine-month period of 2012, a decrease of 34 basis points from the 1.54% average rate paid for the same nine-month period of 2011. Net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) was 3.68% for the nine-month period of 2012, an increase of 8 basis points from the 3.60% margin for the same nine-month period of 2011.

Provision for Loan Losses
The provision for loan losses was $2.5 million for the first nine months of 2012, a decrease of $7.2 million, from $9.7 million for the same nine-month period in 2011. The provision decreased in the first nine 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 same period of 2011. The provision also decreased because of the $123 million decrease in the loan portfolio between the periods. Total non-performing assets were $47.2 million at September 30, 2012, a decrease of $3.4 million, or 6.7%, from $50.6 million at December 31, 2011. Non-performing loans increased $0.6 million and foreclosed and repossessed assets decreased $4.0 million during the first nine months of 2012. The non-performing loan and foreclosed and repossessed asset activity for the first nine months of 2012 was as follows:

Non-Interest Income and Expense
Non-interest income was $6.6 million for the first nine months of 2012, an increase of $1.7 million, or 35.2%, from $4.9 million for the same period in 2011. Gains on sales of loans increased $1.5 million, or 150.9%, between the periods as a result of an increase in single family loan originations and sales due to the low interest rate environment that existed during the first nine 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 $0.3 million primarily because of a decrease in overdraft charges between the periods. Other non-interest income increased $62,000 due primarily to an increase in the sale of uninsured investment products and an increase in rental income on other real estate owned. Mortgage servicing fees decreased $34,000 between the periods primarily because of a decrease in the number of single family mortgage loans that are being serviced for others.

Non-interest expense was $18.4 million for the first nine months of 2012, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 11.1%, from $20.7 million for the same period in 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 expense decreased $0.8 million primarily because of a decrease in the compensation paid as a result of having fewer employees. Gain on real estate owned improved $0.4 million between the periods as there were more gains realized on the sale of real estate and there were fewer write downs in the value of the real estate owned in the first nine months of 2012 when compared to the same period of 2011. Occupancy expense decreased $0.3 million primarily because of a decrease in depreciation and other expenses as a result of having fewer branch facilities. Deposit insurance expense decreased $0.1 million primarily because of the decrease in assets between the periods. Data processing costs increased $0.1 million between the periods primarily because of an 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 for the first nine months of 2012 or the first nine months of 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 September 30, 2012. Since the valuation reserve is established against the entire deferred tax asset balance, no income tax expense was recorded for the first nine months of 2012 or 2011.

Net Income (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders
Net income available to common shareholders was $2.4 million for the first nine months of 2012, an increase of $7.7 million from the $5.3 million net loss available to common shareholders in the same period of 2011.

A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company’s assumptions and expectations. These include but are not limited to the adequacy and marketability of real estate and other collateral securing loans to borrowers; federal and state regulation and enforcement, including restrictions set forth in the supervisory agreements between each of the Company and Bank and the OCC and FRB; possible legislative and regulatory changes, including changes in the degree and manner of regulatory supervision, the ability of the Company and the Bank to establish and adhere to plans and policies relating to, among other things, capital, business, non-performing assets, loan modifications, documentation of loan loss allowance and concentrations of credit that are satisfactory to the OCC and FRB, as applicable, in accordance with the terms of the Company and Bank supervisory agreements and to otherwise manage the operations of the Company and the Bank to ensure compliance with other requirements set forth in the supervisory agreements; the ability of the Company and the Bank to obtain required consents from the OCC and FRB, as applicable, under the supervisory agreements or other directives; the ability of the Bank to comply with its individual minimum capital requirement and other applicable regulatory capital requirements; enforcement activity of the OCC and FRB in the event of our non-compliance with any applicable regulatory standard, agreement or requirement; adverse economic, business and competitive developments such as shrinking interest margins, reduced collateral values, deposit outflows, changes in credit or other risks posed by the Company’s loan and investment portfolios, changes in costs associated with alternate funding sources, including changes in collateral advance rates and policies of the Federal Home Loan Bank, technological, computer-related or operational difficulties, results of litigation, and reduced demand for financial services and loan products; changes in accounting policies and guidelines, or monetary and fiscal policies of the federal government or tax laws; international economic developments; the Company’s access to and adverse changes in securities markets; the market for credit related assets; or other significant uncertainties. Additional factors that may cause actual results to differ from the Company’s assumptions and expectations include those set forth in the Company’s most recent filing on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission. All forward-looking statements are qualified by, and should be considered in conjunction with, such cautionary statements.

(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 September 30, 2012.
