For the three months ended December 31, 2012:

Net income decreased $16,000 to $696,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to net income of $712,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Net interest income decreased $429,000, or 11.8%, to $3.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $3.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.   The decrease of $597,000 in interest income was partially offset by a $168,000 decrease in interest expense.  The decrease in interest income was the result of a decrease in the average interest rate earned on loans from 5.60% to 4.94%, a $16.4 million decrease in the average balance of loans and a decrease in the average rate earned on investments from 2.16% to 1.81%, partially offset by a $42.2 million increase in the average balance of investments.  The decrease in interest expense was primarily the result of a decrease in the average interest rate paid on deposits from 1.01% to 0.78%, partially offset by a $17.0 million increase in the average balance of outstanding deposits and a $9.0 million increase in the average balance of outstanding advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank.  Changes in interest rates are reflective of decreases in overall market rates. 

The provision for loan losses was $225,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to $681,000 for the same quarter in the prior year, representing a decrease of $456,000 or 67.0%. The decrease in the loan loss provision was primarily due to a decrease in impairment charges in multi-family real estate loans in the quarter ended December 31, 2012, as compared to the 2011 quarter.

Other income increased $162,000, or 13.4%, to $1.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 from $1.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. The increase in other income was primarily due to a $154,000 increase in gain on sale of loans and a $38,000 increase in gain on sale of other real estate owned, partially offset by a $64,000 decrease in gain on sale of investments. The increase in gain on sale of loans was the result of an increase in loan sales to Freddie Mac in the December 31, 2012 quarter compared to the same quarter in the prior year, primarily due to an increase in refinancing activity as a result of the continued low interest rate environment.  The increase in gain on sale of other real estate owned was primarily due to the sale of other real estate owned generating proceeds of $1.5 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2012 resulting in a gain of $40,000 compared to $10,000 in proceeds resulting in a gain of $2,000 during the quarter ended December 31, 2011.  The decrease in gain on sale of investments was the result of fewer sales of mortgage-backed securities and no sales of other available for sale securities during the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter.

Noninterest expense increased $229,000, or 7.3%, from $3.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 to $3.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily due to increases of $90,000 in compensation and employee benefits and a $105,000 provision for loss on real estate owned in the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to no such provision in the prior year quarter.  The increase in compensation and employee benefits expense was primarily due to the addition of employees in the accounting and collections departments, additional payroll expense associated with the implementation of a new branch network communication system, and annual wage increases. The provision for loss on real estate owned was due to additional write-downs on two commercial REO properties.     

For the six months ended December 31, 2012:

Net income stayed flat at $1.2 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

Net interest income decreased $742,000, or 10.3%, to $6.4 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $7.2 million for the six months ended December 31, 2011.   The decrease of $1.1 million in interest income was partially offset by a $317,000 decrease in interest expense.  The decrease in interest income was the result of a decrease in the average interest rate earned on loans from 5.54% to 4.96%, a $12.3 million decrease in the average balance of loans and a decrease in the average rate earned on investments from 2.28% to 1.90%, partially offset by a $32.9 million increase in the average balance of investments.  The decrease in interest expense was primarily the result of a decrease in the average interest rate paid on deposits from 1.06% to 0.84%, partially offset by a $16.0 million increase in the average balance of outstanding deposits and a $9.0 million increase in the average balance of outstanding advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank.  Changes in interest rates are reflective of decreases in overall market rates. 

The provision for loan losses was $475,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2012, compared to $1.6 million for the same period in the prior year, a decrease of $1.1 million or 69.9%. The decrease in the loan loss provision was primarily due to a decrease in impairment charges in multi-family real estate loans in the six months ended December 31, 2012, as compared to the prior year six month period.

Other income increased $103,000, or 4.4%, to $2.4 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012 from $2.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2011. The increase in other income was primarily due to a $319,000 increase in gain on sale of loans and an $86,000 increase in income from bank owned life insurance, partially offset by a $300,000 decrease in gain on sale of investments.  The increase in loan sales to Freddie Mac in the December 31, 2012 period when compared to the same period in the prior year is primarily due to an increase in refinancing activity as a result of the continued low interest rate environment. The increase in income from bank owned life insurance was the result of the purchase of additional bank owned life insurance during the latter part of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in gain on sale of investments was the result of fewer sales of mortgage-backed securities and no sales of other available for sale securities during the current period as compared to the prior year period.

Noninterest expense increased $497,000, or 7.9%, from $6.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2011 to $6.8 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily due to increases of $163,000 in compensation and employee benefits and $103,000 in data processing expense, as well as a $105,000 provision for loss on real estate owned in the six months ended December 31, 2012 compared to no such provision in the prior year six month period.  The increase in compensation and employee benefits expense was primarily due to the addition of employees in the accounting and collections departments, additional payroll expense associated with the implementation of a new branch network communication system and annual wage increases. The increase in data processing expense was primarily due to the aforementioned new branch network communication system.  The provision for loss on real estate owned was due to additional write-downs on two commercial REO properties.    

Total assets were $516.7 million at December 31, 2012, compared to $495.9 million at June 30, 2012.  Total assets increased $20.8 million, or 4.2%, primarily as a result of a $10.3 million increase in cash and a $26.9 million increase in investment securities, partially offset by a $16.5 million decrease in loans. The increase in cash is primarily due to subscription funds held in escrow at the Bank at December 31, 2012 in connection with our previously announced conversion from the mutual holding company form of organization to the stock holding company form on January 9, 2013.  The increase in our investment securities was the result of purchases of mortgage-backed securities. The decrease in loans was primarily the result of payoffs aggregating $8.0 million for performing commercial real estate loans in addition to transfers to REO totaling $2.3 million during the six month period ending December 31, 2012.

Total liabilities were $438.5 million at December 31, 2012, compared to $440.9 million at June 30, 2012.  Additionally, commitments and contingencies totaled $22.9 million at December 31, 2012 as a result of subscription funds received in conjunction with the aforementioned conversion. There was no recorded balance in commitments and contingencies at June 30, 2012.

Total stockholders' equity was $55.3 million at December 31, 2012, compared to $55.0 million at June 30, 2012.  The increase was primarily the result of net income of $1.2 million for the six months ended December 31, partially offset by dividends paid of $812,000 during the six month period.  At December 31, 2012, the Bank was considered "well-capitalized" under applicable regulatory requirements.
