AMERICAN SAVINGS BANK REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL RESULTS

gbafNews28

1Q 2022 Net Income of $23.9 million

Solid Credit Quality, Stable Net Interest Margin and Improving Bank Environment

HONOLULU, April 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — American Savings Bank, F.S.B. (ASB), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (NYSE: HE), today reported first quarter 2022 net income of $23.9 million, compared to $22.1 million in the fourth, or linked quarter of 2021 and $29.6 million in the first quarter of 2021.

“Our results reflect good execution in an improving banking environment,” said Ann Teranishi, president and chief executive officer of American Savings Bank. “Earning asset yields are starting to improve as a result of the rising interest rate environment, while credit quality remains solid, with tailwinds from Hawaii's recovering economy. We're continuing our digital transformation, and as we do so are focused on making banking easy anytime and anywhere while delivering the exceptional personal service our customers rely on,” said Teranishi.

Financial Highlights

First quarter 2022 net interest income of $59.0 million reflected higher yields in the investment portfolio partially offset by lower fee income associated with the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) portfolio as the loans continued to pay down. Net interest income increased versus the $57.1 million generated in the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to higher average earning assets driven by increased liquidity from strong deposit growth and higher investment yields. Net interest margin was 2.79% in the first quarter, consistent with the linked quarter and down from 2.95% in the first quarter last year.

In the first quarter of 2022 ASB recorded a negative provision for credit losses of $3.3 million compared to a negative provision for credit losses of $3.5 million in the linked quarter and $8.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. The negative provision in the first quarter of 2022 reflected favorable credit trends including a release of reserves driven by the paydown of a nonperforming loan, as well as an improvement in credit quality including credit upgrades within the commercial real estate portfolio. As of March 31, 2022, ASB's allowance for credit losses to outstanding loans was 1.30% compared to 1.36% as of December 31, 2021 and 1.73% as of March 31, 2021.

The net charge-off ratio for the first quarter of 2022 was 0.01% compared to 0.03% in the linked quarter and 0.18% in the first quarter of 2021. Nonaccrual loans as a percent of total loans receivable held for investment were 0.72% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 0.86% in the linked quarter and 1.00% in the prior year quarter.

Noninterest income was $16.1 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $15.7 million in the linked quarter and $19.0 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase compared to the linked quarter was primarily due to a gain on sale of real estate and higher fee income. The decrease in noninterest income compared to the prior year quarter was primarily due to lower mortgage banking income as loan volume and profit margin on sale of loans decreased in the rising interest rate environment.

Noninterest expense was $48.2 million compared to $50.0 million in the linked quarter and $47.5 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in noninterest expense versus the linked quarter was primarily due to timing of expenses. The increase in noninterest expense versus the same quarter last year was primarily due to a pension accounting change that resulted in a lower pension expense in the first quarter of 2021.    

Total loans were $5.2 billion as of March 31, 2022, consistent with December 31, 2021 as lower commercial markets, PPP and residential loan balances were offset by higher loan balances across the remainder of the loan portfolio, primarily in commercial real estate.    

Total deposits were $8.3 billion as of March 31, 2022, an increase of 1.4% from December 31, 2021. For the first quarter of 2022, the average cost of funds was 0.05%, flat versus the linked quarter and down three basis points versus the same quarter last year.

For the first quarter of 2022 return on average equity was 13.7% compared to 12.1% in the linked quarter and 16.0% in the first quarter of 2021. Return on average assets was 1.04% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to 0.97% in the linked quarter and 1.40% in the same quarter last year.

In the first quarter of 2022, ASB paid dividends of $15.0 million to HEI. ASB had a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 7.8% as of March 31, 2022.
