- THE HOLDING COMPANY OF WEST VIEW SAVINGS BANK-

To Our Shareholders:

Fiscal 2020 was a year of contrasts. The first half of fiscal 2020 started off strong in comparison to fiscal 2019. Net interest income and net income were higher in fiscal 2020. However, when the coronavirus struck during the March 2020 quarter, financial markets began to unravel, the national, state, and local economies went into lockdown, and the Federal Reserve drastically reduced interest rates – practically overnight. These conditions continued through fiscal year-end and continue today.

We produced net income of approximately $2.5 million in fiscal 2020. The Board was able to maintain the current dividend $0.40 per share and we currently plan on doing so in fiscal 2021. Credit quality continues to remain strong. During the pandemic, we worked with borrowers – commercial and retail – that were facing income disruptions. We granted partial loan payment deferrals when warranted, to better match the customers’ reduced ability to repay with their current income. Customers granted loan deferrals have begun to make catch-up payments as their businesses have improved and individuals returned back to work. We will continue to monitor credit quality and have not had a credit loss in over five years despite growing our loan portfolio from $64 million in fiscal 2016 to over $91 million in fiscal 2020. Our capital levels, including the allowance for loan losses, continue to grow to support the business and are consistent with being a well-capitalized bank.

Faced with the unthinkable in terms of the pandemic, the Board of Directors charged management to respond quickly and decisively to maintain essential customer services. Many financial institutions totally shut down their lobbies and bank buildings to customer traffic. Our buildings remained mostly open, and employees were kept safe and working by limiting in person transactions to the essential. In addition, our automated teller machines were fully stocked and technology fine-tuned to meet ever increasing electronic banking transactions. We streamlined our customer contact points, maintained a safe environment for customers and employees, and continued to deliver best in class customer service. Investments in technology, including new automated teller machines, an upgraded internal network, and a mobile banking app were key tools in maintaining customer access and engagement.

We want to thank our customers for their business and patience during the pandemic, and our employees for their dedicated and loyal service to our customers. While we cannot predict the future, please know that the Board, management, and our employees will continue to work hard to earn and keep your trust as shareholders each working day.

WVS FINANCIAL CORP. AND SUBSIDIARY

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

In the normal course of business, we, in an effort to help keep our shareholders and the public informed about our operations, may from time to time issue or make certain statements, either in writing or orally, that are or contain forward-looking statements, as that term is defined in the U.S. federal securities laws. Generally, these statements relate to business plans or strategies, projected or anticipated benefits from acquisitions made by or to be made by us, projections involving anticipated revenues, earnings, profitability or other aspects of operating results or other future developments in our affairs or the industry in which we conduct business. Forward-looking statements may be identified by reference to a future period or periods or by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipated,” “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate” or similar expressions.

Although we believe that the anticipated results or other expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurance that those results or expectations will be attained. Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions (some of which are beyond our control), and as a result actual results may differ materially from those expressed in forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ from forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following, as well as those discussed elsewhere herein:

 

   

our investments in our businesses and in related technology could require additional incremental spending, and might not produce expected deposit and loan growth and anticipated contributions to our earnings;

 

   

general economic or industry conditions could be less favorable than expected, resulting in a deterioration in credit quality, a change in the allowance for loan losses or a reduced demand for credit or fee-based products and services;

 

   

the effects and extend of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the global economy, and its impact on the Company’s operations and financial condition, including the granting of various loan payment deferral and fee waivers, the possibility of credit losses in our loan portfolios and increases in our allowance for credit losses as well as possible impairments on the securities we hold.

 

   

changes in the interest rate environment could reduce net interest income and could increase credit losses;

 

   

the conditions of the securities markets could change, which could adversely affect, among other things, the value or credit quality of our assets, the availability and terms of funding necessary to meet our liquidity needs and our ability to originate loans and leases;

 

   

changes in the extensive laws, regulations and policies governing bank holding companies and their subsidiaries could alter our business environment or affect our operations;

 

   

the potential need to adapt to industry changes in information technology systems, on which we are highly dependent, could present operational issues or require significant capital spending;

 

   

competitive pressures could intensify and affect our profitability, including as a result of continued industry consolidation, the increased availability of financial services from non-banks, technological developments such as the internet or bank regulatory reform; and

 

   

acts or threats of terrorism and actions taken by the United States or other governments as a result of such acts or threats, including possible military action, could further adversely affect business and economic conditions in the United States generally and in our principal markets, which could have an adverse effect on our financial performance and that of our borrowers and on the financial markets and the price of our common stock.

You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update them in light of new or future events except to the extent required by federal securities laws.

GENERAL

WVS Financial Corp. (the “Company”) is the parent holding company of West View Savings Bank (“West View” or the “Savings Bank”). The Company was organized in July 1993 as a Pennsylvania-chartered unitary bank holding company and acquired 100% of the common stock of the Savings Bank in November 1993.

West View Savings Bank is a Pennsylvania-chartered, FDIC-insured stock savings bank conducting business from six offices in the North Hills suburbs of Pittsburgh. The Savings Bank converted from the mutual to the stock form of ownership in November 1993. The Savings Bank had no subsidiaries at June 30, 2020.

The operating results of the Company depend primarily upon its net interest income, which is determined by the difference between income on interest-earning assets, principally loans, mortgage-backed securities and investment securities, and interest expense on interest-bearing liabilities, which consist primarily of deposits and borrowings. The Company’s net income is also affected by its provision for loan losses, as well as the level of its non-interest income, including loan fees and service charges, and its non-interest expenses, such as compensation and employee benefits, income taxes, deposit insurance and occupancy and equipment costs.

Effects of COVID-19 Pandemic

The Company’s business is dependent upon the willingness and ability of our employees and clients to conduct banking and other financial transactions. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains and increased unemployment levels. While the full effects of the pandemic remain unknown, the Company is committed to supporting its customers, employees and communities during this difficult time. The Company has given hardship relief assistance to customers, including the consideration of various loan payment deferral and fee waiver options, and encourages customers to reach out for assistance to support their individual circumstances. The pandemic could result in the recognition of credit losses in our loan portfolios and increases in our allowance for credit losses, particularly if businesses remain closed, the impact on the global economy worsens, or more customers draw on their lines of credit or seek additional loans to help finance their businesses. Similarly, because of changing economic and market conditions affecting issuers, we may be required to recognize impairments on the securities we hold. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business, results of operations, and financial condition, as well as our regulatory capital and liquidity ratios, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic.

The Company has responded to the circumstances surrounding the pandemic to support the safety and well-being of the employees, customers and shareholders by enacting the following measures:

 

   

Restricted lobby traffic at all branch locations to essential transactions (e.g. safe deposit box access, signing of legal documents, etc.).

 

   

Temporarily closed our Sherwood Oaks Branch which is located within a retirement community; and redirected our Sherwood Oaks customers to our Cranberry Township branch which is located about one mile away.

 

   

Modified branch business hours Monday through Thursday, to close at 4:00 pm (no change), Friday close at 5:00 pm (as opposed to 6:00 pm), and Saturday close at 12:00 pm (no change). Business hours may change at any time depending upon COVID-19 conditions and government guidance.

 

   

Monitor federal, state and local COVID-19 websites and adopt guidance as appropriate and feasible.

 

5


   

Encourage customers to use our various on-line portals (e.g. internet banking, online bill pay service), automated teller machines and night depositories to redirect routine transactions away from our branch staff as much as possible.

 

   

Non-branch banking services (e.g. lending, accounting, check and electronic processing) continue to be offered consistent with COVID-19 guidelines.

Cash Equivalents. Cash on hand and due from banks, and interest-earning demand deposits represent total cash and cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents decreased $1.9 million or 42.91% to $2.5 million at June 30, 2020 from $4.4 million at June 30, 2019. Changes in cash and cash equivalents are influenced by the timing of customer transaction account deposits, the redeployment of funds into other earning assets such as investments or loans, and the repayment of Company borrowings.

Certificates of Deposit. The level of certificates of deposit remained virtually unchanged totaling $1.8 million at both June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019.

Investments. The Company’s investment portfolio is comprised of corporate bonds, foreign debt securities, commercial paper, obligations of state and political subdivisions, Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) stock and mortgaged-backed securities issued by U.S. Government Agencies and private-issuers. See Notes 4 and 5 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information. The Company’s investment portfolio increased $2.7 million or 1.07% to $254.8 million at June 30, 2020 from $252.1 million at June 30, 2019.

Investment securities other than mortgage-backed securities, increased $14.4 million or 10.50% to $151.1 million at June 30, 2020 from $136.8 million at June 30, 2019. This change was due to the following purchases of securities, all of which were investment-grade: $20.3 million of floating rate corporate bonds, $8.1 million of U.S. dollar denominated floating rate foreign bonds and $26.3 million of commercial paper. These purchases were partially offset by $10.1 million in sales of corporate bonds, and early issuer redemptions and maturities as follows: $5.1 million of corporate bonds, $2.0 million of U.S. dollar denominated foreign bonds, $20.5 million in proceeds from maturities of commercial paper, $1.8 million of municipal bonds. Our investment in FHLB stock decreased $446 thousand or 6.36% to $6.6 million at June 30, 2020 from $7.0 million at June 30, 2019 due to lower levels of FHLB advances. Investment purchases were primarily funded with cash flows from our mortgage-backed securities portfolio. See “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk”.

Mortgage-backed securities decreased $11.2 million or 10.36% to $97.1 million at June 30, 2020 from $108.3 million at June 30, 2019. This decrease was due primarily to cash repayments on U.S. Government Agency floating rate mortgage-backed securities totaling $11.0 million and $192 thousand on the Company’s private-label floating-rate mortgage-backed securities portfolio. Net cash flows from the mortgage-backed securities segment were used primarily to fund loan growth and investment purchases.

Net Loans Receivable. Net loans receivable increased $444 thousand or 0.49% to $91.0 million at June 30, 2020, from $90.6 million at June 30, 2019. The increase in net loans was primarily attributable to a $1.3 million increase in single-family real estate loans, a $632 thousand increase in multi-family dwelling loans and a $405 thousand increase in commercial real estate loans, partially offset by decreases of $1.0 million in single family construction loans and a $407 thousand decrease in commercial loans not secured by real estate. The Company actively pursues 15, 20, and 30 year fixed-rate single-family residential real estate loans. The Company also makes available residential mortgage loans with interest rates which adjust pursuant to a designated index, although customer acceptance has been somewhat limited in the Savings Bank’s market area. We expect that the housing market will continue to modestly grow throughout fiscal 2021. The Company will continue to selectively offer commercial real estate, land acquisition and development, and shorter-term construction loans (primarily on residential properties), and commercial loans on business assets to increase interest income while managing credit and interest rate risk. The Company also offers higher yielding multi-family loans to existing, and seasoned prospective, customers. During fiscal 2020, the Company retained all of its loan originations. The Company also partners with the FHLB’s Mortgage Partnership Finance® (“MPF”) Program to make purchase money and refinancing mortgages available to the public. These loans are originated through the Company who then assigns the loans to the MPF Program. This MPF Program relationship allows the Company to earn loan origination fee income while avoiding the interest rate risk of retaining long-term fixed rate mortgages with low interest rates on the Company’s balance sheet. Residential loan originations increased in fiscal 2018, 2019 and 2020, and we expect this trend to continue into fiscal 2021.

 

7


Deposits. Total deposits increased approximately $4.9 million or 3.35% during the year ended June 30, 2020. Checking account deposits increased $4.4 million or 10.21% during the year ended June 30, 2020. Savings and money market accounts increased by $801 thousand or 1.83% and $1.8 million or 8.94%, respectively. The increase in checking, money market and savings accounts were likely attributable to customer preferences for liquid investments and government payments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Advance payments by borrowers for taxes and insurance increased $191 thousand or 9.25% as a result of the increase in single family real estate loans during fiscal 2020 compared to fiscal 2019. Certificates of deposit decreased $2.3 million or 6.15%, primarily due to lower market rates paid on certificates of deposit in comparison to savings and money market accounts and a decrease in wholesale CDs issued. At June 30, 2020, the Savings Bank had $9.9 million in brokered certificates of deposits as compared to $10.5 million at June 30, 2019. In general, brokered deposits are considered more sensitive to changes in market interest rates and may be more likely to leave a bank than core deposits. See Note 13 to the Consolidated Financial Statements and “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures on Market Risk.”

Borrowed Funds. Borrowed funds decreased $4.7 million or 2.73% to $166.2 million during fiscal 2020. The Company’s borrowed funds are comprised of FHLB long-term advances and short-term borrowings. Short-term borrowings include FHLB short-term advances and other short-term borrowings such as broker repurchase agreements or borrowings from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (FRB).

At June 30, 2020, the Company had four FHLB long-term variable rate advances totaling $85.0 million, with a weighted-average interest rate of 1.00%, three FHLB long-term fixed rate advances totaling $15.0 million with a weighted-average interest rate of 3.03%, and FHLB short-term advances totaling $59.2 million with a weighted-average rate of 0.39%. Additionally, at June 30, 2020, the Company had a FRB Discount Window Borrowing of $7 million outstanding with a weighted-average rate of 0.25%. See Note 14 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. At June 30, 2019, the Company’s borrowed funds consisted of the same four FHLB long-term variable rate advances and FHLB fixed rate advances with weighted-average rates of 2.46% and 3.03%, respectively. In addition, FHLB short-term advances totaled $70.8 million with a weighted-average rate of 2.46%. See Notes 13 and 14 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

The Company may also use a variety of short-term borrowing sources as part of its asset/liability management program. The actual short-term funding source used, at any given point in time, depends upon factors such as cost, terms, maturity terms and general market conditions.

Stockholders’ Equity. Total stockholders’ equity increased to $36.9 million at June 30, 2020, compared to $36.0 million at June 30, 2019. The change in stockholders’ equity was primarily attributable to Company net income of $2.5 million, which was partially offset by $707 thousand of cash dividends paid on the Company’s common stock, other comprehensive losses totaling $571 thousand, and $506 thousand paid for the purchase of Treasury stock. See the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income and Note 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for a discussion of the components of other comprehensive loss. Book value per share (Tier 1 equity basis) increased from $18.54 at June 30, 2019 to $19.65 at June 30, 2020. On a common equity basis, book value per share increased from $18.55 at June 30, 2019 to $19.36 at June 30, 2020. The Company was able to maintain strong capital ratios during fiscal 2020. Our Tier 1 leverage ratio was 10.16% and total risk-based capital ratio was 18.88% at June 30, 2020, as compared to 10.20% and 19.38%, respectively, at June 30, 2019.

General. The Company reported net income of $2.5 million, $2.8 million and $2.1 million for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2020, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The $305 thousand or 10.91% decrease in net income during fiscal 2020 was primarily attributable to a $551 thousand decrease in net interest income and a $53 thousand decrease in non-interest income, which were partially offset by a $10 thousand decrease in the provision for loan losses, a decrease of $227 thousand in non-interest expense and a $62 thousand decrease in income tax expense. The $670 thousand or 31.53% increase in net income during fiscal 2019 was primarily attributable to a $636 thousand increase in net interest income and a $196 thousand decrease in income tax expense, which were partially offset by a $30 thousand increase in the provision for loan losses, an increase of $77 thousand in non-interest expense and a $55 thousand decrease in non-interest income. Earnings per share totaled $1.41 (basic and diluted) for fiscal 2020 as compared to $1.57 and $1.16 for fiscal 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Rate/Volume Analysis. The following table describes the extent to which changes in interest rates and changes in volume of interest-related assets and liabilities have affected the Company’s interest income and expense during the periods indicated. For each category of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, information is provided on changes attributable to: (1) changes in volume (change in volume multiplied by prior year rate), (2) changes in rate (change in rate multiplied by prior year volume), and (3) total change in rate and volume. The combined effect of changes in both rate and volume has been allocated proportionately to the change due to rate and the change due to volume.

Net Interest Income. Net interest income is determined by the Company’s interest rate spread (i.e. the difference between the yields earned on its interest-earning assets and the rates paid on its interest-bearing liabilities) and the relative amounts of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities. Net interest income decreased by $551 thousand or 7.67% in fiscal 2020 and increased $636 thousand or 9.72% in fiscal 2019. The decrease in fiscal 2020 was the result of a $1.6 million or 13.02% decrease in interest and dividend income, which was partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in interest expense. The increase in fiscal 2019 was the result of a $2.4 million or 24.65% increase in interest and dividend income, which was partially offset by a $1.7 million or 55.95% increase in interest expense. Fiscal year 2020 was impacted by lower average yields on the Company’s floating rate investment and mortgage-backed securities while fiscal year 2019 was favorably impacted by higher average yields on the Company’s investment, mortgage-backed securities, and loan portfolios and by higher levels of net loans receivable.

Interest Income. Total interest income decreased by $1.6 million or 13.02% during fiscal 2020 and increased $2.4 million or 24.65% during fiscal 2019. The fiscal 2020 decrease was primarily attributable to lower average yields on the Company’s floating rate investment and mortgage-backed securities, FHLB stock and loan portfolio. The fiscal 2019 increase was primarily attributable to higher average yields on the Company’s investment and mortgage-backed securities, FHLB stock and loan portfolio when compared to the same period of 2018. Management continuously evaluates market opportunities, and associated borrowing costs, to contribute to net interest income. The Company believes that it has sufficient capital to grow its balance sheet as opportunities become available.

Interest income on net loans receivable increased $118 thousand or 3.53% during fiscal 2020 and increased $359 thousand or 12.03% during fiscal 2019. The increase in fiscal 2020 was primarily the result of a $3.7 million increase in the average balances of net loans outstanding, which more than offset a 3 basis point decrease in the weighted-average yield on the Company’s loan portfolio. During fiscal 2019, the increase was primarily attributable to a $6.5 million increase in the average balance of net loans outstanding and as well as a 13 basis point increase in the weighted-average yield on the Company’s loan portfolio. During fiscal

2020, 2019 and 2018, the Company also enjoyed higher levels of single-family home purchase loans. Substantially all of our loan originations were fixed-rate with a mix of 15, 20 and 30 year terms.

Interest income on investment securities decreased $644 thousand or 14.48% during fiscal 2020 and increased $1.4 million or 46.48% during fiscal 2019. During fiscal 2020, the decrease was primarily due to a 68 basis point decrease in the average yield on these investments, partially offset by an increase of $10.3 million in the average balance of these investments. The increase in 2019 was primarily attributable to a $7.0 million increase in the average balance of investment grade corporate bonds and a 97 basis point increase in the weighted-average yield when compared to the same period of 2018. The increase in the average balance of investments outstanding during both 2020 and 2019 was attributable to the redeployment of mortgage-backed securities cash flows into floating rate corporate bonds. The changes in weighted-average yields in 2020 and 2019 were principally attributable to changes in the three-month dollar London Interbank Offered Rates (“LIBOR”) during these periods.

Interest income on mortgage-backed securities decreased by $1.0 million or 27.53% during fiscal 2020, compared to fiscal 2019. The decrease was primarily due to a 78 basis point decrease in the weighted-average yield earned on U.S. Government Agency mortgage-backed securities as well as $6.6 million decrease in the average balance of these securities. During 2019, interest income on mortgage-backed securities increased $615 thousand or 19.65% and increased $797 thousand or 34.16% during fiscal 2018. The increase for fiscal 2019 was primarily attributable to an 84 basis point increase in the weighted average yield earned on U.S. Government Agency mortgage-backed securities, which more than offset an $11.9 million decline in the average balance of U.S. Government Agency mortgage-backed securities. During fiscal 2020, 2019 and 2018, the U.S. Government Agency mortgage-backed securities sector offered relatively unattractive investment opportunities. The Company began to reinvest cash repayments of principal into floating rate investment securities and also increased its net loan portfolio. The average balances associated with the Company’s private label mortgage-backed securities (“PLMBS”) declined $105 thousand and $123 thousand during fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019, respectively. The Company continues to reduce its exposure to private-label mortgage-backed securities due to the substandard investment performance associated with this segment. The decrease in weighted-average yields in 2020 was principally attributable to lower one-month dollar LIBOR when compared to the same period in 2019.

Dividend income on FHLB stock decreased $28 thousand or 5.76% during fiscal 2020, and increased $47 thousand or 10.71% during fiscal 2019. The decrease in 2020 was due to a 49 basis point decline in the weighted-average yield partially offset by a $56 thousand increase in the average balance of FHLB stock outstanding. During fiscal 2019, the change was the result of a 117 basis point increase in the weighted-average yield, which was partially offset by a $472 thousand decrease in the average balance. The Company’s average holdings of FHLB stock are directly related to its volume of outstanding FHLB advances.

Interest income on certificates of deposit increased by $25 thousand and decreased by $50 thousand during fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019, respectively. The 2020 increase was attributable to a $1.2 million increase in the average balance of certificates of deposit, which was partially offset by a 25 basis point decrease in the average yield earned on certificates of deposit. The decrease in 2019 was primarily due to a $3.0 million decline in the average balance of certificates of deposit, which was partially offset by a 60 basis point increase in the weighted-average yield.

Interest Expense. Total interest expense decreased $1.0 million or 20.89% during fiscal 2020 and increased $1.7 million or 55.95% during fiscal 2019. For fiscal 2020, the decrease was primarily due to lower average market rates paid on both our FHLB long-term and short-term advances. The market rates paid on the FHLB short-term advances decreased 88 basis points during fiscal 2020 compared to fiscal 2019 and the market rates paid on the FHLB long-term advances decreased 63 basis points during the same period. Partially offsetting the decline in rates was a $25.5 million increase in the average balances of our long-term FHLB advances, and a $23.4 million reduction in the average balance of our FHLB short-term borrowings. The increase in fiscal 2019 was primarily due to higher average market rates paid on FHLB borrowings and time deposits, which were partially offset by lower average balances of FHLB advances outstanding when compared to the same period in 2018. In 2019, interest paid on FHLB long-term advances increased $2.0 million, when compared to 2018, primarily as a result of a $72.9 million increase in the average balances outstanding. Also during fiscal 2019, interest expense on FHLB short-term advances declined by $679 thousand as a result of a decrease of $85.8 million in the average balance outstanding, partially offset by an

increase in the rate paid of 85 basis points. The changes in rates paid on FHLB borrowings for both periods were consistent with changes in short-term market interest rates, such as LIBOR.

Interest on other short-term borrowings increased $6 thousand in fiscal 2020, when compared to fiscal 2019. The increase in fiscal 2020 was attributable to FRB discount window borrowings outstanding compared to no such borrowings in fiscal 2019.

Interest expense on interest-bearing deposits increased $3 thousand in fiscal 2020 and increased $450 thousand or over 100% in fiscal 2019. The slight increase in fiscal 2020, compared to fiscal 2019, was primarily attributable to a 14 basis point decrease in the rate paid on time deposits partially offset by a $3.9 million increase in the average balance of time deposits. The increase in fiscal 2019, when compared to the same period of 2018, was primarily the result of an 81 basis point increase in the rate paid on time deposits and an $8.4 million increase in average balance of these same deposits. Terms associated with broker deposits were sometimes more favorable during fiscal 2017, 2018 and 2019 than terms offered on other short-term borrowings. The Company had $9.9 million and $10.5 million of brokered deposits outstanding at June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Beginning in fiscal 2017 and continuing through fiscal 2020, the Company began to use brokered deposits in part of its asset/liability management strategy.    

Provision for Loan Losses. A provision for loan losses is charged, or accreted to earnings to bring the total allowance to a level considered adequate by management to absorb potential losses in the portfolio. Management’s determination of the adequacy of the allowance is based on periodic evaluations of the loan portfolio considering past experience, current economic conditions, volume, growth, composition of the loan portfolio and other relevant factors. The Company recorded provision for loan losses totaling $70 thousand in fiscal 2020 and $80 thousand in fiscal 2019. The decrease in the provision in fiscal 2020 was attributable to lower levels of construction and land acquisition and development loans, partially offset by increased reserve factors related to the economic uncertainty as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. See Note 9 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.    The increase in the provision in fiscal 2019 was primarily attributable to growth in the Company’s single-family owner occupied loan portfolio as well as an increase in the reserve factor associated with the loan segment from 0.46 basis points to 0.50 basis points.

Non-interest Income. Total non-interest income decreased $53 thousand or 12.77% in fiscal 2020 and decreased $55 thousand or 11.70% in fiscal 2019. The decrease in fiscal 2020 reflects a $60 thousand increase in other-than-temporary impairment losses on the Company’s legacy PLMBS portfolio, a $17 thousand decrease in ATM income and a $10 thousand decrease in service charges on deposit accounts. The decrease in fiscal 2019 is primarily attributable to a $14 thousand increase in other-than-temporary impairment losses on the Company’s legacy PLMBS portfolio, a $12 thousand decrease in service charges on deposit accounts and a $14 thousand decrease in ATM income.

Non-interest Expense. Total non-interest expense decreased $227 thousand or 5.99% in fiscal 2020, and increased $77 thousand or 2.07% during fiscal 2019. During fiscal 2020, the decrease was primarily due to lower employee post-retirement benefit costs, lower FDIC insurance premium expenses due to the FDIC Small Bank Assessment Credits and lower ATM program expenses. The increase in fiscal 2019 was primarily the result of increases in compensation expense and data processing expense of $148 thousand and $10 thousand, respectively.    These increases were partially offset by lower occupancy and equipment expenses as well as lower FDIC insurance premium expenses.

Income Taxes. Income taxes decreased $62 thousand during fiscal 2020 and decreased $196 thousand during fiscal 2019, respectively. The decrease in income tax expense for fiscal 2020 was primarily attributable to lower taxable income. The decrease in fiscal 2019 was primarily the result of the absence of the additional $133 thousand federal income tax expense due to the write-down of the Company’s net deferred tax assets associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which was recorded in December 2017, partially offset by higher taxable income and the reduced federal tax rate effective January 1, 2018.    The Company’s combined effective tax rate was 25.9% for the year ended June 30, 2020 and 25.0% for the year ended June 30, 2019.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Liquidity is often analyzed by reviewing the cash flow statement. Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $1.9 million during fiscal 2020 primarily due to $4.3 million net cash used for investing activities and $982 thousand net cash used for financing activities, which was partially offset by $3.4 million net cash provided by operating activities.

Funds used for investing activities totaled $4.3 million during fiscal 2020 as compared to $1.5 million during fiscal 2019. Primary uses of funds during fiscal 2020 included purchases of investments totaling $54.7 million, purchases of loans of $9.1 million, purchases of $6.7 million of FHLB stock and purchases of certificates of deposit totaling $2.8 million. Partially offsetting these uses of funds were repayments of investments and mortgage-backed securities totaling $29.4 million and $11.2 million, respectively, an $8.7 million decrease in net loans receivable, and $10.1 million in proceeds from sales of investment securities. During fiscal 2020, investment purchases were comprised primarily of floating rate investment grade corporate bonds.

Funds used for financing activities totaled $982 thousand for fiscal 2020 as compared to $329 thousand used for financing activities in fiscal 2019. Primary uses of funds for fiscal 2020 were:    $11.7 million reduction in FHLB short-term advances; $506 thousand for purchases of treasury stock and $707 thousand in cash dividends paid on the Company’s common stock. The primary source of funds provided for financing activities during fiscal 2020 was a $7.0 million increase in other short-term borrowings. Management has determined that it currently is maintaining adequate liquidity and continues to match funding sources with lending and investment opportunities.

Funds provided by operating activities totaled $3.4 million during fiscal 2020 as compared to $3.8 million during fiscal 2019. During fiscal 2020, net cash provided from operations was primarily due to $2.5 million of net income and a $475 thousand decrease in accrued interest receivable. In fiscal 2019, net cash provided by operating activities was primarily attributable to $2.8 million of net income and $443 thousand increase in accrued interest payable.

The Company’s primary sources of funds are deposits, repayments on existing loans, investment portfolio cash flow, funds from operations and funds obtained through various borrowings. At June 30, 2020, the total approved loan commitments outstanding amounted to $5.6 million. At the same date, commitments under unused lines of credit amounted to $5.2 million and the undisbursed portion of construction loans approximated $2.9 million. Certificates of deposit scheduled to mature in one year or less at June 30, 2020, totaled $31.3 million. Management believes that a significant portion of our local maturing deposits will remain with the Company.

The Company’s contractual obligations at June 30, 2020 were as follows:

See also Note 15 of the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

Historically, the Company used its sources of funds primarily to meet its ongoing commitments to pay maturing certificates of deposit and savings withdrawals, fund loan commitments and maintain a substantial portfolio of investment securities. The Company has been able to generate sufficient cash through FHLB

advances, other borrowings and the retail and broker deposit markets to provide the cash utilized in investing and financing activities. Management believes that the Company currently has adequate liquidity available to respond to liquidity demands.

On July 27, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.10 per share payable on August 20, 2020 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 10, 2020. Dividends are subject to determination and declaration by the Board of Directors, which take into account the Company’s financial condition, statutory and regulatory restrictions, general economic conditions and other factors. There can be no assurance that dividends will in fact be paid on the common stock in the future or that, if paid, such dividends will not be reduced or eliminated in future periods.

The Company’s ratio of Tier 1 capital to risk weighted assets, common equity Tier 1 capital to risk weighted assets and total capital to risk weighted assets were 18.55%, 18.55%, and 18.88%, respectively, at June 30, 2020. The Company’s ratio of Tier 1 capital to average total assets was 10.16% at June 30, 2020.

Non-performing assets consist of non-accrual loans and real estate owned. A loan is placed on non-accrual status when, in the judgment of management, the probability of collection of interest is deemed insufficient to warrant further accrual. When a loan is placed on non-accrual status, previously accrued but uncollected interest is deducted from interest income. The Company normally does not accrue interest on loans past due 90 days or more, however, interest may be accrued if management believes that it will collect on the loan.

The Company had no non-performing assets at June 30, 2020. At June 30, 2019 the Company’s non-performing assets totaled approximately $225 thousand or 0.06% of total assets. The $225 thousand decrease in non-performing assets during the twelve months ended June 30, 2020 was due to the Company’s one non-performing single-family real estate loan being discharged from bankruptcy during the quarter ended September 2019.

Impact of Inflation and Changing Prices. The consolidated financial statements of the Company and related notes presented herein have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles which require the measurement of financial condition and operating results in terms of historical dollars, without considering changes in the relative purchasing power of money over time due to inflation.

Unlike most industrial companies, substantially all of the assets and liabilities of a financial institution are monetary in nature. As a result, interest rates have a more significant impact on a financial institution’s performance than the effects of general levels of inflation. Interest rates do not necessarily move in the same direction or in the same magnitude as the prices of goods and services since such prices are affected by inflation to a larger degree than interest rates. In the current interest rate environment, liquidity and the maturity structure of the Company’s assets and liabilities are critical to the maintenance of acceptable performance levels.

QUANTATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

The Company’s primary market risk exposure is interest rate risk and, to a lesser extent, liquidity risk. All of the Company’s transactions are denominated in US dollars with no specific foreign exchange exposure. The Savings Bank has no agricultural loan assets and therefore would not have a specific exposure to changes in commodity prices. Any impacts that changes in foreign exchange rates and commodity prices would have on interest rates are assumed to be exogenous and will be analyzed on an ex post basis.

Interest rate risk (“IRR”) is the exposure of a banking organization’s financial condition to adverse movements in interest rates. Accepting this risk can be an important source of profitability and shareholder value, however excessive levels of IRR can pose a significant threat to the Company’s earnings and capital base. Accordingly, effective risk management that maintains IRR at prudent levels is essential to the Company’s safety and soundness.

Evaluating a financial institution’s exposure to changes in interest rates includes assessing both the adequacy of the management process used to control IRR and the organization’s quantitative level of exposure. When assessing the IRR management process, the Company seeks to ensure that appropriate policies, procedures, management information systems and internal controls are in place to maintain IRR at prudent levels with consistency and continuity. Evaluating the quantitative level of IRR exposure requires the Company to assess the existing and potential future effects of changes in interest rates on its consolidated financial condition, including capital adequacy, earnings, liquidity, and, where appropriate, asset quality.

Financial institutions derive their income primarily from the excess of interest collected over interest paid. The rates of interest an institution earns on its assets and owes on its liabilities generally are established contractually for a period of time. Since market interest rates change over time, an institution is exposed to lower profit margins (or losses) if it cannot adapt to interest-rate changes. For example, assume that an institution’s assets carry intermediate- or long-term fixed rates and that those assets were funded with short-term liabilities. If market interest rates rise by the time the short-term liabilities must be refinanced, the increase in the institution’s interest expense on its liabilities may not be sufficiently offset if assets continue to earn at the long-term fixed rates. Accordingly, an institution’s profits could decrease on existing assets because the institution will either have lower net interest income or, possibly, net interest expense. Similar risks exist when assets are subject to contractual interest-rate ceilings, or rate sensitive assets are funded by longer-term, fixed-rate liabilities in a decreasing-rate environment.

During the fiscal years 2013-2020, and into fiscal year 2021, intermediate and long-term market interest rates fluctuated considerably. Many central banks, including the Federal Reserve, continued above normal levels of monetary accommodation including quantitative easing and targeted asset purchase programs. The desired outcomes of these programs are to stimulate aggregate demand, reduce high levels of unemployment and to further lower market interest rates.

Throughout fiscal year 2020, the Company continued to adjust its asset/liability management tactics, increased total assets by $1.3 million and continued to manage its Tier 1 capital. The primary segments of asset growth for fiscal year 2020 were: investment securities available for sale - $14.9 million and net loans receivable - $444 thousand, which were partially offset by decreases in investment securities held to maturity - $500 thousand and mortgage-backed securities held to maturity - $11.2 million.    

Changes in intermediate and long-term market interest rates, the changing slope of the Treasury yield curve, and higher levels of interest rate volatility have impacted prepayments on the Company’s loan, investment and mortgage-backed securities portfolios. Principal repayments on the Company’s loan, investment, and mortgage-backed securities portfolios for the twelve months ended June 30, 2020, totaled $20.2 million, $29.4 million, and $11.2 million, respectively.

Despite stagnant global interest rates and Treasury yields the Company maintained its balance sheet and used proceeds from maturities/calls of corporate bonds, repayments on its mortgage-backed securities, and borrowings to purchase floating rate investment grade corporate bonds and to fund loan growth. In particular, the Company increased its investment securities – available for sale portfolio allocation from

 

16


$132.8 million at June 30, 2019 to $147.6 million at June 30, 2020 and its net loans receivable from $90.6 million at June 30, 2019 to $91.0 million at June 30, 2020.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, the Company increased its loan portfolio by $444 thousand or 0.49% with a $1.3 million increase in single-family real estate loans, a $632 thousand increase in multi-family dwellings and a $405 thousand increase in commercial real estate loans, which were partially offset by a decrease of $1.0 million in single-family construction loans and a $407 thousand decrease in commercial loans. The Company also makes available for origination residential mortgage loans with interest rates adjusting pursuant to a designated index, although customer acceptance has been somewhat limited in the Savings Bank’s market area. We expect that the housing market will modestly grow throughout fiscal 2021. The Company will continue to selectively offer commercial real estate, land acquisition and development, and shorter-term construction loans (primarily on residential properties), and commercial loans on business assets to partially increase interest income while limiting credit and interest rate risk. The Company has also offered higher yielding commercial and small business loans to existing customers and seasoned prospective customers.

During fiscal 2020, principal investment purchases were comprised of: investment grade corporate bonds - $20.3 million with a weighted-average yield of approximately 2.97%, and U.S. dollar denominated investment-grade corporate bonds of large foreign issuers - $8.1 million with a weighted-average yield of approximately 2.95% and commercial paper - $26.3 million with a weighted-average yield of approximately 2.83%. All of the corporate bond purchases are floating rate and reprice quarterly based upon changes in the three-month LIBOR.

Investment proceeds received during fiscal 2020 included commercial paper - $20.5 million with a weighted-average yield of approximately 2.81%, corporate bonds - $5.1 million with a weighted-average yield of approximately 2.59%, corporate bonds of large foreign issuers - $2.0 million with a weighted- average yield of approximately 2.54%, taxable municipal bonds - $500 thousand with a weighted-average yield of approximately 2.65% and tax-exempt municipal bonds - $1.3 million with a weighted-average yield of approximately 1.25%.

As of June 30, 2020, the implementation of these asset and liability management initiatives resulted in the following:

 

  1)

$238.8 million or 66.9% of the Company’s assets were comprised of floating rate investment and mortgage-backed securities. Of this $238.8 million, approximately $97.1 million float on a monthly basis based upon changes in the one-month LIBOR and about $141.7 million reprice on a quarterly basis based upon the three-month LIBOR;

 

  2)

$97.1 million or 38.1% of the Company’s total investment portfolio was comprised of floating rate mortgage-backed securities (including collateralized mortgage obligations – “CMOs”) that reprice on a monthly basis;

 

  3)

$147.6 million or 41.3% of the Company’s assets were comprised of investment securities classified as available for sale;

 

  4)

The maturity distribution of the Company’s investment portfolio is as follows: 3 months or less: $16.5 million; after 3 months – 6 months: $5.7 million; 6 months – 1 year: $13.8 million; 1 year – 2 years: $42.0 million; after 2 years through 3 years: $38.1 million; after 3 years - 5 years: $35.0 million.

 

  5)

An aggregate of $6.7 million or 7.4% of the Company’s net loan portfolio had adjustable interest rates or remaining maturities of less than 12 months; and

 

  6)

The maturity distribution of the Company’s borrowings is as follows: 3 months or less—$59.2 million, and 1-3 years - $100 million.

 

17


The effect of interest rate changes on a financial institution’s assets and liabilities may be analyzed by examining the “interest rate sensitivity” of the assets and liabilities and by monitoring an institution’s interest rate sensitivity “gap”. An asset or liability is said to be interest rate sensitive within a specific time period if it will mature or reprice within a given time period. A gap is considered positive (negative) when the amount of rate sensitive assets (liabilities) exceeds the amount of rate sensitive liabilities (assets). During a period of falling interest rates, a negative gap would tend to result in an increase in net interest income. During a period of rising interest rates, a positive gap would tend to result in an increase in net interest income.

As part of its asset/liability management strategy, the Company maintained an asset sensitive financial position due to unusually low market interest rates. An asset sensitive financial position may benefit earnings during a period of rising interest rates and reduce earnings during a period of declining interest rates.

The following table sets forth certain information at the dates indicated relating to the Company’s interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities which are estimated to mature or are scheduled to reprice within one year.

The Company utilizes an income simulation model to measure interest rate risk and to manage interest rate sensitivity. The Company believes that income simulation modeling may enable the Company to better estimate the possible effects on net interest income due to changing market interest rates. Other key model parameters include: estimated prepayment rates on the Company’s loan, mortgage-backed securities and investment portfolios; savings decay rate assumptions; and the repayment terms and embedded options of the Company’s borrowings.

The following table presents the simulated impact of a 100 and 200 basis point upward or downward (parallel) shift in market interest rates on net interest income, return on average equity, return on average assets and the market value of portfolio equity at June 30, 2020. This analysis was done assuming that the interest-earning assets will average approximately $350 million and $351 million over a projected twelve and twenty-four month period, respectively, for the estimated impact on change in net interest

income, return on average equity and return on average assets. The estimated changes in market value of equity were calculated using balance sheet levels at June 30, 2020. Actual future results could differ materially from our estimates primarily due to unknown future interest rate changes and the level of prepayments on our investment and loan portfolios and future FDIC regular and special assessments.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We have served as the Company’s auditor since 1993.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Organization

WVS Financial Corp. (“WVS” or the “Company”) is a Pennsylvania-chartered unitary bank holding company which owns 100 percent of the common stock of West View Savings Bank (“West View” or the “Savings Bank”). The operating results of the Company depend primarily upon the operating results of the Savings Bank and, to a lesser extent, income from interest-earning assets such as investment securities.

West View is a Pennsylvania-chartered, FDIC-insured stock savings bank conducting business from six offices in the North Hills suburbs of Pittsburgh. The Savings Bank’s principal sources of revenue originate from its portfolio of residential real estate and commercial mortgage loans as well as income from investment and mortgage-backed securities.

The Company is supervised by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, while the Savings Bank is subject to regulation and supervision by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) and the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities.

Basis of Presentation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of WVS and its wholly owned subsidiary, West View. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The accounting and reporting policies of WVS and West View conform to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The Company’s fiscal year-end for financial reporting is June 30. For regulatory and income tax reporting purposes, WVS reports on a December 31 calendar year basis.

In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the Consolidated Balance Sheet date and revenues and expenses for that period. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains and increased unemployment levels. The resulting temporary closure of many businesses and the implementation of social distancing and sheltering-in-place policies has and may continue to impact many of the Company’s customers. While the full effects of the pandemic remain unknown, the Company is committed to supporting its customers, employees and communities during this difficult time. The Company has given hardship relief assistance to customers, including the consideration of various loan payment deferral and fee waiver options, and encourages customers to reach out for assistance to support their individual circumstances. The pandemic could result in the recognition of credit losses in our loan portfolios and increases in our allowance for credit losses, particularly if businesses remain closed, the impact on the global economy worsens, or more customers draw on their lines of credit or seek additional loans to help finance their businesses. Similarly, because of changing economic and market conditions affecting issuers, we may be required to recognize impairments on the securities we hold. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business, results of operations, and financial condition, as well as our regulatory capital and liquidity ratios, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic.

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed by the President of the United States. Certain provisions within the CARES Act encourage financial

institutions to practice prudent efforts to work with borrowers impacted by COVID-19. Under these provisions, loan modifications deemed to be COVID-19 related would not be considered a troubled debt restructuring (TDR) if the loan was not more than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019 and the deferral was executed between March 1, 2020 and the earlier of 60 days after the date of termination of the COVID-19 national emergency or December 31, 2020. The banking regulators issued similar guidance, which also clarified that a COVID-19 related modification should not be considered a TDR if the borrower was current on payments at the time the underlying loan modification program was implemented and if the modification is considered to be short-term. As of June 30, 2020, the number of loans in deferral totaled 15 with an aggregate balance of $5.8 million and an aggregate appraised value of $9.6 million. Substantially all of these deferrals were generally 90 days in duration, with full collection of taxes and insurance, partial to full collection of interest, and no or partial collection of principal during the deferral period. As of March 31, 2020 through June 30, 2020 all of these loans were current.

Investment and Mortgage-Backed Securities

Investment and mortgage-backed securities are classified at the time of purchase as securities held to maturity or securities available for sale based on management’s ability and intent. Investment and mortgage-backed securities acquired with the ability and intent to hold to maturity are stated at cost adjusted for amortization of premium and accretion of discount, which are computed using the level-yield method and recognized as adjustments of interest income. Amortization rates for mortgage-backed securities are periodically adjusted to reflect changes in the prepayment speeds of the underlying mortgages. Certain other investment securities have been classified as available for sale to serve principally as a source of liquidity. Unrealized holding gains and losses for available-for-sale securities are reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity, net of tax, until realized. Realized securities gains and losses are computed using the specific identification method. Interest and dividends on investment and mortgage-backed securities are recognized as income when earned.

Common stock of the Federal Home Loan Bank (the “FHLB”) represents ownership in an institution which is wholly owned by other financial institutions. This equity security is accounted for at cost and reported separately on the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheet.

Management systematically evaluates investment securities for other-than-temporary declines in fair value on at least a quarterly basis. This analysis requires management to consider various factors, which include: (1) duration and magnitude of the decline in value; (2) the credit rating of the issuer or issuers; (3) structure of the security; and (4) the Company’s intent to sell the security or whether it’s more likely than not that the Company would be required to sell the security before its anticipated recovery in market value.

The Company retains an independent third party to assist it in the determination of fair values for its private-label collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMOs”). This valuation is meant to be a “Level Three” valuation as defined by ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures. The valuation does not represent the actual terms or prices at which any party could purchase the securities. There is currently no active secondary market for private-label CMOs and there can be no assurance that any secondary market for private-label CMOs will develop. The Company believes that the private-label CMO portfolio had five other than temporary impairments at June 30, 2020.

The Company believes that the data and assumptions used to determine the fair values are reasonable. The fair value calculations reflect relevant facts and market conditions. Events and conditions occurring after the valuation date could have a material effect on the private-label CMO segment’s fair value.

Net Loans Receivable

Net loans receivable are reported at their principal amount, net of the allowance for loan losses and deferred loan fees. Interest on mortgage, consumer, and commercial loans is recognized on the accrual method. The Company’s general policy is to stop accruing interest on loans when, based upon relevant factors, the collection of principal or interest is doubtful, regardless of the contractual status. Interest received on nonaccrual loans is recorded as income or applied against principal according to management’s judgment as to the collectability of such principal.

Loan origination and commitment fees, and all incremental direct loan origination costs, are deferred and recognized over the contractual remaining lives of the related loans on a level-yield basis.

Allowance for Loan Losses

The allowance for loan losses represents the amount which management estimates is adequate to provide for probable losses inherent in its loan portfolio. The allowance method is used in providing for loan losses. Accordingly, all loan losses are charged to the allowance, and all recoveries are credited to it. The allowance for loan losses is established through a provision for loan losses charged to operations. The provision for loan losses is based on management’s periodic evaluation of individual loans, economic factors, past loan loss experience, changes in the composition and volume of the portfolio, and other relevant factors. The estimates used in determining the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses, including the amounts and timing of future cash flows expected on impaired loans, are particularly susceptible to changes in the near term.

Impaired loans are commercial and commercial real estate loans for which it is probable the Company will not be able to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. The Company individually evaluates such loans for impairment and does not aggregate loans by major risk classifications. The definition of “impaired loans” is not the same as the definition of “nonaccrual loans,” although the two categories overlap. The Company may choose to place a loan on nonaccrual status due to payment delinquency or uncertain collectability, while not classifying the loan as impaired if the loan is not a commercial or commercial real estate loan. Factors considered by management in determining impairment include payment status and collateral value. The amount of impairment for these types of impaired loans is determined by the difference between the present value of the expected cash

flows related to the loan, using the original interest rate, and its recorded value, or as a practical expedient in the case of collateralized loans, the difference between the fair value of the collateral and the recorded amount of the loans. When foreclosure is probable, impairment is measured based on the fair value of the collateral.

Mortgage loans on one-to-four family properties and all consumer loans are large groups of smaller-balance homogeneous loans and are measured for impairment collectively. Loans that experience insignificant payment delays, which are defined as 90 days or less, generally are not classified as impaired. Management determines the significance of payment delays on a case-by-case basis taking into consideration all circumstances surrounding the loan and the borrower, including the length of the delay, the borrower’s prior payment record, and the amount of shortfall in relation to the principal and interest owed.

Real Estate Owned

Real estate owned acquired through foreclosure is carried at the lower of cost or fair value minus estimated costs to sell. Costs relating to development and improvement of the property are capitalized, whereas costs of holding such real estate are expensed as incurred.

Premises and Equipment

Land is carried at cost, while premises and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is principally computed on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets, which range from 3 to 25 years for furniture and equipment and 7 to 50 years for building premises. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of their estimated useful lives or their respective lease terms, which range from 5 to 40 years. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged against income as incurred. Costs of major additions and improvements are capitalized.

Income Taxes

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are computed based on the difference between the financial statement and the income tax basis of assets and liabilities using the enacted marginal tax rates. Deferred income taxes or benefits are based on the changes in the deferred tax asset or liability from period to period.

The Company files a consolidated federal income tax return. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are reflected at currently enacted income tax rates applicable to the period in which such items are expected to be realized or settled. As changes in tax rates are enacted, deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted through the provision for income taxes.

Earnings Per Share

The Company provides dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share are calculated by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share are calculated by dividing net income available to common stockholders, adjusted for the effects of any dilutive securities, by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding, adjusted for the effects of any dilutive securities.

Comprehensive Income

The Company is required to present comprehensive income and its components in a full set of general-purpose financial statements for all periods presented. Other comprehensive income is composed exclusively of net unrealized holding gains (losses) on its available-for-sale securities portfolio, and the net non-credit component of other-than-temporary impairment on its held-to-maturity private-label CMO portfolio.

Cash Flow Information

Cash and cash equivalents include cash and due from banks and interest-earning demand deposits with original maturities of 90 days or less. Cash flow from loans, deposits, and short-term borrowings are reported net.

Reclassification of Comparative Figures

Certain comparative amounts for prior years have been reclassified to conform to current-year presentations. Such reclassifications did not affect net income or stockholders’ equity.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”), which changes the impairment model for most financial assets. This ASU is intended to improve financial reporting by requiring timelier recording of credit losses on loans and other financial instruments held by financial institutions and other organizations. The underlying premise of the ASU is that financial assets measured at amortized cost should be presented at the net amount expected to be collected, through an allowance for credit losses that is deducted from the amortized cost basis. The allowance for credit losses should reflect management’s current estimate of credit losses that are expected to occur over the remaining life of a financial asset. The income statement will be effected for the measurement of credit losses for newly recognized financial assets, as well as the expected increases or decreases of expected credit losses that have taken place during the period. ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and early adoption is permitted for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018. With certain exceptions, transition to the new requirements will be through a cumulative effect adjustment to opening retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is adopted. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842). This Update defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for SEC filers that are eligible to be smaller reporting companies, non-SEC filers, and all other companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We expect to recognize a one-time cumulative effect adjustment to the allowance for loan losses as of the beginning of the first reporting

period in which the new standard is effective, but cannot yet determine the magnitude of any such one-time adjustment or the overall impact of the new guidance on the consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework – Changes the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurements. The Update removes the requirement to disclose the amount of and reasons for transfers between Level I and Level II of the fair value hierarchy; the policy for timing of transfers between levels; and the valuation processes for Level III fair value measurements. The Update requires disclosure of changes in unrealized gains and losses for the period included in other comprehensive income (loss) for recurring Level III fair value measurements held at the end of the reporting period and the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level III fair value measurements. This Update is effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of the standard will have on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

In November, 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-19, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, which amended the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for entities other than public business entities (PBEs), by requiring non-PBEs to adopt the standard for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Therefore, the revised effective dates of ASU 2016-13 for PBEs that are SEC filers will be fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those years, PBEs other than SEC filers will be for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those years, and all other entities (non-PBEs) will be for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those years. The ASU also clarifies that receivables arising from operating leases are not within the scope of Subtopic 326-20. Rather, impairment of receivables arising from operating leases should be accounted for in accordance with Topic 842, Leases. The effective date and transition requirements for ASU 2018-19 are the same as those in ASU 2016-13, as amended by ASU 2018-19. In November, 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842). The Update defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for SEC filers that are eligible to be smaller reporting companies, non-SEC filers and all other companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In April 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-04, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and Topic 825, Financial Instruments, which affects a variety of topics in the Codification and applies to all reporting entities within the scope of the affected accounting guidance. Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses amendments are effective for SEC registrants for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other public business entities, the effective date is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and for all other entities, the effective date is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2020. For entities that have adopted the amendments in Update 2017-12, the effective date is as of the beginning of the first annual period beginning after the issuance of this Update. Topic 825, Financial Instruments amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842). This Update defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for SEC filers that are eligible to be smaller reporting companies, non-SEC filers and all

other companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Furthermore, the ASU provides a one-year deferral of the effective dates of the ASUs on derivatives and hedging for companies that are not public business entities. The Company qualifies as a smaller reporting company and does not expect to early adopt these ASUs.

In May 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-05, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, Topic 326, which allows entities to irrevocably elect the fair value option for certain financial assets previously measured at amortized cost upon adoption of the new credit losses standard. To be eligible for the transition election, the existing financial asset must otherwise be both within the scope of the new credit losses standard and eligible for applying the fair value option in ASC 825-10.3. The election must be applied on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is not available for either available-for-sale or held-to-maturity debt securities. For entities that elect the fair value option, the difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of the financial asset would be recognized through a cumulative-effect adjustment to opening retained earnings as of the date an entity adopted ASU 2016-13. Changes in fair value of that financial asset would subsequently be reported in current earnings. For entities that have not yet adopted ASU 2016-13, the effective dates and transition requirements are the same as those in ASU 2016-13. For entities that have adopted ASU 2016-13, ASU 2019-05 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted once ASU 2016-13 has been adopted. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842). The Update defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for SEC filers that are eligible to be smaller reporting companies, non-SEC filers and all other companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company qualifies as a smaller reporting company and does not expect to early adopt ASU 2016-13.

In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-08, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) and Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which requires entities to measure and classify share-based payments to a customer, in accordance with the guidance in ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. The amendments in that Update expanded the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees and, in doing so, superseded guidance in Subtopic 505-50, Equity – Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. The amount that would be recorded as a reduction in revenue would be measured based on the grant date fair value of the share-based payment, in accordance with Topic 718. The grant date is the date at which a supplier and customer reach a mutual understanding of the award’s key terms and conditions. The award’s classification and subsequent measurement would be subject to ASC 718 unless the award is modified or the grantee is no longer a customer. For entities that have not yet adopted the amendments in Update 2018-07, the amendments in this Update are effective for (1) public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years, and (2) other than public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. For entities that have adopted the amendments in Update 2018-07, the amendments in this Update are effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. An entity may early adopt the amendments in this Update, but not before it adopts the amendments in Update 2018-07. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842). The Update defers the effective dates of ASU 2016-13 for SEC filers that are eligible to be smaller reporting companies, non-SEC filers, and all other companies to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. This Update also amends the mandatory effective date for the elimination of Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test under ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment (Goodwill), to align with those used for credit losses. Furthermore, the ASU provides a one-year deferral of the effective dates of the ASUs on derivatives and hedging and leases for companies that are not public business entities. The Company qualifies as a smaller reporting company and does not expect to early adopt these ASUs.

In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-11, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, to clarify its new credit impairment guidance in ASC 326, based on implementation issues raised by stakeholders. This Update clarified, among other things, that expected recoveries are to be included in the allowance for credit losses for these financial assets; an accounting policy election can be made to adjust the effective interest rate for existing troubled debt restructurings based on the prepayment assumptions instead of the prepayment assumptions applicable immediately prior to the restructuring event; and extends the practical expedient to exclude accrued interest receivable from all additional relevant disclosures involving amortized cost basis. The effective dates in this Update are the same as those applicable for ASU 2019-10. The Company qualifies as a smaller reporting company and does not expect to early adopt these ASUs.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740), to simplify the accounting for income taxes, change the accounting for certain tax transactions, and make minor improvements to the codification. This Update provides a policy election to not allocate consolidated income taxes when a member of a consolidated tax return is not subject to income tax and provides guidance to evaluate whether a step-up in tax basis of goodwill relates to a business combination in which book goodwill was recognized or a separate transaction. The Update also changes current guidance for making an intra-period allocation, if there is a loss in continuing operations and gains outside of continuing operations; determining when a deferred tax liability is recognized after an investor in a foreign entity transitions to or from the equity method of accounting; accounting for tax law changes and year-to-date losses in interim periods; and determining how to apply the income tax guidance to franchise taxes that are partially based on income. For public business entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of the standard will have on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

In February 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-02, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326) and Leases (Topic 842): Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 119 and Update to SEC Section on Effective Date Related to Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), February 2020, to add and amend SEC paragraphs in the Accounting Standards Codification to reflect the issuance of SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 119, related to the new credit losses standard, and comments by the SEC staff related to the revised effective date of the new leases standard. This ASU is effective upon issuance. This did not have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-03, Codification Improvements to Financial Instruments. This ASU was issued to improve and clarify various financial instruments topics, including the current expected credit losses (CECL) standard issued in 2016. The ASU includes seven issues that describe the areas of improvement and the related amendments to GAAP; they are intended to make the standards easier to understand and apply and to eliminate inconsistencies, and they are narrow in scope and are not expected to significantly change practice for most entities. Among its provisions, the ASU clarifies that all entities, other than public business entities that elected the fair value option, are required to provide certain fair value disclosures under ASC 825, Financial Instruments, in both interim and annual financial statements. It also clarifies that the contractual term of a net investment in a lease under Topic 842 should be the contractual term used to measure expected credit losses under Topic 326. Amendments related to ASU 2019-04 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is not permitted before an entity’s adoption of ASU 2016-01. Amendments related to ASU 2016-13 for entities that have not yet adopted that guidance are effective upon adoption of the amendments in ASU 2016-13. Early adoption is not permitted before an entity’s adoption of ASU 2016-13. Amendments related to ASU 2016-13 for entities that have adopted that guidance are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those years. Other amendments are effective upon issuance of this ASU. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, March 2020, to provide temporary optional expedients and exceptions to the U.S. GAAP guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to ease the financial reporting burdens of the expected market transition from LIBOR and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates, such as Secured Overnight Financing Rate. Entities can elect not to apply certain modification accounting requirements to contracts affected by what the guidance calls reference rate reform, if certain criteria are met. An entity that makes this election would not have to remeasure the contracts at the modification date or reassess a previous accounting determination. Also, entities can elect various optional expedients that would allow them to continue applying hedge accounting for hedging relationships affected by reference rate reform, if certain criteria are met, and can make a one-time election to sell and/or reclassify held-to-maturity debt securities that reference an interest rate affected by reference rate reform. The amendments in this ASU are effective for all entities upon issuance through December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of the standard will have on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

In March 2020, in accordance with provisions in the CARES Act, the Corporation has elected not to apply the guidance in ASC 310-40 on accounting for TDRs to loan modifications related to COVID-19 made between March 1, 2020 and the earlier of (1) December 31, 2020 or (2) 60 days after the end of the COVID-19 national emergency. This relief was only applied to modifications for borrowers that were not more than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019 and may include payment deferrals, fee waivers, extension of repayments or other delays in payment.

REVENUE RECOGNITION

Effective July 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update ASU 2014-09, Revenue from contracts with Customers – Topic 606, and all subsequent ASUs that modified ASC 606. The Company has elected to apply the standard to all prior periods presented utilizing the full retrospective approach. The implementation of the new standard had no material impact to the measurement or recognition of revenue of prior periods. Management determined that the primary sources of revenue emanating from interest and dividend income on loans and investments along with noninterest revenue resulting from investment security gains, and earnings on bank owned life insurances are not within the scope of ASC 606. As a result, no changes were made during the period related to these sources of revenue. The main types of noninterest income within the scope of the standard are as follows: service charges on deposit accounts—the Company has contracts with its deposit customers where fees are charged if certain parameters are not met. These agreements can be cancelled at any time by either the Company or the deposit customer. Revenue from these transactions is recognized on a monthly basis as the Company has an unconditional right to the fee consideration. The Company also has transaction fees related to specific transactions or activities resulting from a customer request or activity that include overdraft fees, online banking fees, interchange fees, ATM fees and other transaction fees. All of these fees are attributable to specific performance obligations of the Company where the revenue is recognized at a defined point in time upon the completion of the requested service/transaction.

MORTGAGE-BACKED SECURITIES

Mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”) include mortgage pass-through certificates (“PCs”) and collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMOs”). With a pass-through security, investors own an undivided interest in the pool of mortgages that collateralize the PCs. Principal and interest are passed through to the investor as they are generated by the mortgages underlying the pool. PCs and CMOs may be insured or guaranteed by Freddie Mac (“FHLMC”), Fannie Mae (“FNMA”), and the Government National Mortgage Association (“GNMA”). CMOs may also be privately issued with varying degrees of credit enhancements. A CMO reallocates mortgage pool cash flow to a series of bonds with varying stated maturities, estimated average lives, coupon rates, and prepayment characteristics.

The Company’s CMO portfolio is comprised of two segments: CMOs backed by U.S. Government Agencies (“Agency CMOs”) and CMOs backed by single-family whole loans not guaranteed by a U.S. Government Agency (“Private-Label CMOs”).

At June 30, 2020, the Company’s Agency CMOs totaled $96.5 million as compared to $107.4 million at June 30, 2019. The Company’s private-label CMOs totaled $618 thousand at June 30, 2020 as compared to $883 thousand at June 30, 2019. The $11.2 million decrease in the CMO segment of our portfolio was due to repayments on the U.S. Government agency CMO portfolio totaling $11.0 million, and $192 thousand in repayments on the private-label CMOs.    At June 30, 2020, the Company’s entire MBS portfolio, including CMOs, was comprised of adjustable or floating rate investments. All of the Company’s floating rate MBS adjust monthly based upon changes in the one-month LIBOR. The Company has no investment in multi-family or commercial real estate based MBS.

Due to prepayments of the underlying loans, and the prepayment characteristics of the CMO tranches, the actual maturities of the Company’s MBS are expected to be substantially less than the scheduled maturities.

The Company retains an independent third party to assist it in the determination of a fair value for three of its private-label CMOs. This valuation is meant to be a “Level Three” valuation as defined by ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures. The valuation does not represent the actual terms or prices at which any party could purchase the securities. There is currently no active secondary market for private-label CMOs and there can be no assurance that any secondary market for private-label CMOs will develop. The private-label CMO portfolio had five previously recorded other-than-temporary impairments (“OTTI”) at June 30, 2020. During the twelve months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded an additional $88 thousand of credit impairment charges on its private-label CMO portfolio.

The Company believes that the data and assumptions used to determine the fair values are reasonable. The fair value calculations reflect relevant facts and market conditions. Events and conditions occurring after the valuation date could have a material effect on the private-label CMO segment’s fair value.

For debt securities, impairment is considered to be other than temporary if an entity (1) intends to sell the security, (2) more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovering its amortized cost basis, or (3) does not expect to recover the security’s entire amortized cost basis (even if the entity does not intend to sell the security). In addition, impairment is considered to be other than temporary if the present value of cash flows expected to be collected from the debt security is less than the amortized cost basis of the security (any such shortfall is referred to as a credit loss).

The Company evaluates outstanding available-for-sale and held-to-maturity securities in an unrealized loss position (i.e., impaired securities) for other than temporary impairment (“OTTI”) on a quarterly basis. In doing so, the Company considers many factors including, but not limited to: the credit ratings assigned to the securities by the Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations (“NRSROs”); other indicators of the credit quality of the issuer; the strength of the provider of any guarantees; the length of time and extent that fair value has been less than amortized cost; and whether the Company has the intent to sell the security or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before its anticipated recovery. In the case of its private-label residential MBS, the Company also considers prepayment speeds, the historical and projected performance of the underlying loans and the credit support provided by the subordinate securities. These evaluations are inherently subjective and consider a number of quantitative and qualitative factors.

The following table presents a roll-forward of the credit loss component of the amortized cost of mortgage-backed securities that we have written down for OTTI and the credit component of the loss that is recognized in earnings. OTTI recognized in earnings for credit impaired mortgage-backed securities is presented as additions in two components based upon whether the current period is the first time the mortgage-backed security was credit-impaired (initial credit impairment) or is not the first time the mortgage-backed security was credit impaired (subsequent credit impairments). The credit loss component is reduced if we sell, intend to sell or believe that we will be required to sell previously credit-impaired mortgage-backed securities. Additionally, the credit loss component is reduced if we receive cash flows in excess of what we expected to receive over the remaining life of the credit impaired mortgage-backed securities, the security matures or is fully written down.

During the twelve months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded a subsequent credit impairment charge of $88 thousand, and no non-credit unrealized holding losses to accumulated other comprehensive loss. The Company was able to accrete back into other comprehensive income $16 thousand (net of income tax effect of $3 thousand), based on principal repayments on private-label CMOs previously identified with OTTI.

In the case of its private-label residential CMOs that exhibit adverse risk characteristics, the Company employs models to determine the cash flows that it is likely to collect from the securities. These models consider borrower characteristics and the particular attributes of the loans underlying the securities, in conjunction with assumptions about future changes in home prices and interest rates, to predict the likelihood a loan will default and the impact on default frequency, loss severity and remaining credit enhancement. A significant input to these models is the forecast of future housing price changes for the relevant states and metropolitan statistical areas, which are based upon an assessment of the various housing markets. In general, since the ultimate receipt of contractual payments on these securities will depend upon the credit and prepayment performance of the underlying loans and, if needed, the credit enhancements for the senior securities owned by the Company, the Company uses these models to assess whether the credit enhancement associated with each security is sufficient to protect against likely losses of principal and interest on the underlying mortgage loans. The development of the modeling assumptions requires significant judgment.

In conjunction with our adoption of ASC Topic 820 effective June 30, 2009, the Company retained an independent third party to assist it with assessing its investments within the private-label CMO portfolio. The independent third party utilized certain assumptions for producing the cash flow analyses used in the OTTI assessment. Key assumptions would include interest rates, expected market participant spreads and discount rates, housing prices, projected future delinquency levels and assumed loss rates on any liquidated collateral.

The Company reviewed the independent third party’s assumptions used in the June 30, 2020 OTTI process. Based on the results of this review, the Company deemed the independent third party’s assumptions to be reasonable and adopted them. However, different assumptions could produce materially different results, which could impact the Company’s conclusions as to whether an impairment is

considered other-than-temporary and the magnitude of the credit loss. The Company had three private-label CMOs with OTTI at June 30, 2020.

If the Company intends to sell an impaired debt security, or more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis, the impairment is other-than-temporary and is recognized currently in earnings in an amount equal to the entire difference between fair value and amortized cost. The Company does not anticipate selling its private-label CMOs, nor does Management believe that the Company will be required to sell these securities before recovery of this amortized cost basis.

In instances in which the Company determines that a credit loss exists but the Company does not intend to sell the security and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the security before the anticipated recovery of its remaining amortized cost basis, the OTTI is separated into (1) the amount of the total impairment related to the credit loss and (2) the amount of the total impairment related to all other factors (i.e., the noncredit portion). The amount of the total OTTI related to the credit loss is recognized in earnings and the amount of the total OTTI related to all other factors is recognized in accumulated other comprehensive loss. The total OTTI is presented in the Consolidated Statement of Income with an offset for the amount of the total OTTI that is recognized in accumulated other comprehensive loss. Absent the intent or requirement to sell a security, if a credit loss does not exist, any impairment is considered to be temporary.

Regardless of whether an OTTI is recognized in its entirety in earnings or if the credit portion is recognized in earnings and the noncredit portion is recognized in other comprehensive income (loss), the estimation of fair values has a significant impact on the amount(s) of any impairment that is recorded.

The noncredit portion of any OTTI losses on securities classified as available-for-sale is adjusted to fair value with an offsetting adjustment to the carrying value of the security. The fair value adjustment could increase or decrease the carrying value of the security. All of the Company’s private-label CMOs were originally, and continue to be classified, as held to maturity.

In periods subsequent to the recognition of an OTTI loss, the other-than-temporarily impaired debt security is accounted for as if it had been purchased on the measurement date of the OTTI at an amount equal to the previous amortized cost basis less the credit-related OTTI recognized in earnings. For debt securities for which credit-related OTTI is recognized in earnings, the difference between the new cost basis and the cash flows expected to be collected is accreted into interest income over the remaining life of the security in a prospective manner based on the amount and timing of future estimated cash flows.

The Company had investments in 69 positions that were temporarily impaired at June 30, 2020. Based on its analysis, management has concluded that three private-label CMOs were other-than-temporarily impaired, while the remaining securities portfolio has experienced unrealized losses and a decrease in fair value due to interest rate volatility, illiquidity in the marketplace, or credit deterioration in the U.S. mortgage markets.

and residential mortgage loans outside of its immediate trade area, provided such loans meet the Company’s credit policy guidelines. At June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company had approximately $2.3 million and $3.6 million, respectively, of outstanding loans for land development and construction in the local trade area. Although the Company had a diversified loan portfolio at June 30, 2020 and 2019, loans outstanding to individuals and businesses are dependent upon the local economic conditions in its immediate trade area.

Certain officers, directors, and their associates were customers of, and had transactions with, the Company in the ordinary course of business. There were no loans to those directors, executive officers, or their associates during the fiscal years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.

The following table summarizes the primary segments of the loan portfolio as of June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019.

The Company’s loan portfolio may include troubled debt restructurings (TDRs), where economic concessions have been granted to borrowers who have experienced or are expected to experience financial difficulties. These concessions typically result from the Company’s loss mitigation activities and could include reductions in the interest rate, payment extensions, forgiveness of principal, forbearance or other actions. Certain TDRs are classified as nonperforming at the time of restructure and may only be returned to performing status after considering the borrower’s sustained repayment performance for a reasonable period, generally six months. Under the provisions of the CARES Act, as of June 30, 2020, the Company had granted 15 loan modification requests with an aggregate balance of $5.8 million, or 6.0% of loans outstanding and an aggregate appraised value of approximately $9.6 million. The characteristics of these modifications are considered short-term and do not result in a reclassification of these loans to TDR status. Substantially all of these modification requests provide for full collection of taxes and insurance, partial to full collection of interest and no, partial or full collection of principal during the deferral period.

During fiscal 2020 and 2019, there were no loans modified and considered a trouble debt restructuring. At June 30, 2020 and 2019, there were no previously modified TDRs in default.

When the Company modifies a loan, management evaluates any possible impairment based on the present value of expected future cash flows, discounted at the contractual interest rate of the original loan agreement, except when the sole (remaining) source of repayment for the loan is the operation or liquidation of the collateral. In these cases, management uses the current fair value of the collateral, less selling costs, instead of discounted cash flows. If management determines that the value of the modified loan is less than the recorded investment in the loan (net of previous charge-offs, deferred loan fees or costs and unamortized premium or discount), impairment is recognized by segment or class of loan, as applicable, through an allowance estimate or a charge-off to the allowance. Segment and class status is determined by the loan’s classification at origination.

The allowance for loan losses is established through provisions for loan losses charged against income. Loans deemed to be uncollectible are charged against the allowance account. Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance. The allowance is maintained at a level believed adequate by management to absorb estimated potential loan losses. Management’s determination of the adequacy of the allowance is based on periodic evaluations of the loan portfolio considering past experience, current economic conditions, composition of the loan portfolio and other relevant factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective, as it requires material estimates that may be susceptible to significant change.

Effective December 13, 2006, the FDIC, in conjunction with the other federal banking agencies adopted a Revised Interagency Policy Statement on the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (“ALLL”). The revised policy statement revised and replaced the banking agencies’ 1993 policy statement on the ALLL. The revised policy statement provides that an institution must maintain an ALLL at a level that is appropriate to cover estimated credit losses on individually evaluated loans determined to be impaired, as well as estimated credit losses inherent in the remainder of the loan and lease portfolio. The banking agencies also revised the policy to ensure consistency with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The revised policy statement updates the previous guidance that describes the responsibilities of the board of directors, management, and bank examiners regarding the ALLL, factors to be considered in the estimation of the ALLL, and the objectives and elements of an effective loan review system.

Federal regulations require that each insured savings institution classify its assets on a regular basis. In addition, in connection with examinations of insured institutions, federal examiners have authority to identify problem assets and, if appropriate, classify them. There are three classifications for problem assets: “substandard”, “doubtful” and “loss”. Substandard assets have one or more defined weaknesses and are characterized by the distinct possibility that the insured institution will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected. Doubtful assets have the weaknesses of those classified as substandard with the added characteristic that the weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full on the basis of currently existing facts, conditions and values questionable, and there is a high possibility of loss. An asset classified as loss is considered uncollectible and of such little value that continuance as an asset of the institution is not warranted. Another category designated “asset watch” is also utilized by the Bank for assets which do not currently expose an insured institution to a sufficient degree of risk to warrant classification as substandard, doubtful or loss. Assets classified as substandard or doubtful require the institution to establish general allowances for loan losses. If an asset or portion thereof is classified as loss, the insured institution must either establish specific allowances for loan losses in the amount of 100% of the portion of the asset classified loss, or charge-off such amount. General loss allowances established to cover possible losses related to assets classified substandard or doubtful may be included in determining an institution’s regulatory capital, while specific valuation allowances for loan losses do not qualify as regulatory capital.

The Company’s general policy is to internally classify its assets on a regular basis and establish prudent general valuation allowances that are adequate to absorb losses that have not been identified but that are inherent in the loan portfolio. The Company maintains general valuation allowances that it believes are adequate to absorb losses in its loan portfolio that are not clearly attributable to specific loans. The Company’s general valuation allowances are within the following general ranges: (1) 0% to 5% of assets subject to special mention; (2) 5.00% to 100% of assets classified substandard; and (3) 50% to 100% of assets classified doubtful. Any loan classified as loss is charged-off. To further monitor and assess the risk characteristics of the loan portfolio, loan delinquencies are reviewed to consider any developing problem loans. Based upon the procedures in place, considering the Company’s past charge-offs and recoveries and assessing the current risk elements in the portfolio, management believes the allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2020 is adequate.

Credit Quality Information

The following tables represent credit exposure by internally assigned grades for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. The grading system analysis estimates the capability of the borrower to repay the contractual obligations of the loan agreements as scheduled or not at all. The Company’s internal credit risk grading system is based on experiences with similarly graded loans.

The Company’s internally assigned grades are as follows:

Pass – loans which are protected by the current net worth and paying capacity of the obligor or by the value of the underlying collateral.

Special Mention – loans where a potential weakness or risk exists, which could cause a more serious problem if not corrected.

Substandard – loans that have a well-defined weakness based on objective evidence and can be characterized by the distinct possibility that the Company will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected.

Doubtful – loans classified as doubtful have all the weaknesses inherent in a substandard loan. In addition, these weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full highly questionable and improbable, based on existing circumstances.

Loss – loans classified as loss are considered uncollectible, or of such value that continuance as a loan is not warranted.

The primary credit quality indicator used by management in the 1 – 4 family and consumer loan portfolios is the performance status of the loans. Payment activity is reviewed by Management on a monthly basis to determine how loans are performing. Loans are considered to be non-performing when they become 90 days delinquent, have a history of delinquency, or have other inherent characteristics which Management deems to be weaknesses.

ALLOWANCE FOR LOAN LOSSES

The Company determines its allowance for loan losses in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company uses a systematic methodology as required by Financial Reporting Release No. 28 and the various Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council guidelines. The Company also endeavors to adhere to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 102 in connection with loan loss allowance methodology and documentation issues.

Our methodology used to determine the allocated portion of the allowance is as follows. For groups of homogenous loans, we apply a loss rate to the groups’ aggregate balance. Our group loss rate reflects our historical loss experience. We may adjust these group rates to compensate for changes in environmental factors; but our adjustments have not been frequent due to a relatively stable charge-off experience. The Company also monitors industry loss experience on similar loan portfolio segments. We then identify loans for individual evaluation under ASC Topic 310. If the individually identified loans are performing, we apply a segment specific loss rate adjusted for relevant environmental factors, if necessary, for those loans reviewed individually and considered individually impaired, we use one of the three methods for measuring impairment mandated by ASC Topic 310. Generally the fair value of collateral is used since our impaired loans are generally real estate based. In connection with the fair value of collateral measurement, the Company generally uses an independent appraisal and determines costs to sell. The Company’s appraisals for commercial income based loans, such as multi-family and commercial real estate loans, assess value based upon the operating cash flows of the business as opposed to merely “as built” values. The Company then validates the reasonableness of our calculated allowances by: (1) reviewing trends in loan volume, delinquencies, restructurings and concentrations; (2) reviewing prior period (historical) charge-offs and recoveries; and (3) presenting the results of this process, quarterly, to the Asset Classification Committee and the Savings Bank’s Board of Directors. We then tabulate, format and summarize the current loan loss allowance balance for financial and regulatory reporting purposes.

ALLOWANCE FOR LOAN LOSSES (Continued)

 

The Company had no unallocated loss allowance balance at June 30, 2020 and 2019.

The allowance for loan losses represents the amount which management estimates is adequate to provide for probable losses inherent in its loan portfolio. The allowance method is used in providing for loan losses. Accordingly, all loan losses are charged to the allowance, and all recoveries are credited to it. The allowance for loan losses is established through a provision for loan losses charged to operations. The provision for loan losses is based on management’s periodic evaluation of individual loans, economic factors, past loan loss experience, changes in the composition and volume of the portfolio, and other relevant factors. The estimates used in determining the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses, including the amounts and timing of future cash flows expected on impaired loans, are particularly susceptible to changes in the near term.

The following is a summary of the changes in the allowance for loan losses:

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, the significant changes to the ALLL were a $44 thousand increase associated with the 1-4 family loan segment and a $29 thousand increase associated with commercial mortgage loans. The primary reason for the changes in the ALLL balance during fiscal 2020 is an increase in the Company’s reserve factors related to the economic uncertainty as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019, the ALLL associated with the 1-4 family loan and the construction loan segments increased by $49 thousand and $22 thousand, respectively. Additionally, the ALLL associated with the land acquisition and development segment increased $10 thousand. The primary reason for the changes in the ALLL balance during fiscal 2019 is the change in the applicable loan balances as well as an increase in the reserve factor associated with the 1-4 family permanent loans.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, the ALLL associated with the 1-4 family loans increased by $51 thousand primarily as a result of higher loan balances as well as an increase in the reserve factor from 0.43% to 0.46%. Additionally, the ALLL associated with the commercial loan segment increased by $15 thousand due to higher loan levels.

During the fiscal years ended June 30, 2020, 2019 and 2018, respectively, the Company increased its ALLL reserve factors for the following loan segments:
