WEST BEND, Wis., May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Westbury Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBB), the holding company (the "Company") for Westbury Bank (the "Bank"), today announced a loss of $1.8 million for the second quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to net income of $68,000 for the first quarter ended December 31, 2013. The loss for the quarter was primarily the result of a restructuring charge of $2.5 million, discussed in more detail below.

Ray Lipman, Chairman, President and CEO made the following comments related to the results for the period ended March 31, 2014.

  • The Bank's primary goals for the past few years have been to reduce problem assets and increase our capital levels. We have been very successful in these efforts as our non-performing assets are $5.5 million, or 1.01% of total assets, at March 31, 2014, compared to 2.19% of total assets at March 31, 2013 and a high of $36.0 million, or 5.60% of total assets, at December 31, 2009. The Company's total equity equaled $89.6 million at March 31, 2014, or 16.37% as a percent of total assets, compared to $55.2 million, or 8.58% of total assets, at December 31, 2009, as the result of the completion of our mutual to stock conversion in April 2013.
  • Given our strong capital position, our goals are to improve financial performance and grow the Bank. Having recently celebrated our first anniversary as a public company, management is continuing to review all aspects of the Bank's internal operations with a focus on maximizing long term stockholder value. Our efforts include adding experienced commercial bankers with a broad variety of skill sets that are being implemented throughout the Bank. We are also utilizing strategies to more effectively deploy our customer service representatives to adapt to the increased usage of electronic banking service channels by our customers.
  • During the three months ended March 31, 2014, our loan portfolio grew by $10.6 million, or 12.1% annualized growth, consisting primarily of multifamily, commercial real estate, construction and commercial business loans. During the six months ended March 31, 2014, our loan portfolio grew by $13.8 million, or 7.9% annualized growth consisting primarily of multifamily, commercial real estate and construction loans. By comparison, for the same quarter in 2013, the loan portfolio decreased by $14.2 million, or (15.2%) annualized. Our team of experienced commercial lenders is succeeding in bringing new business to the Bank, allowing us to leverage our capital position and liquidity levels, resulting in net loan growth for each of the last two quarters.
  • For the current quarter, deposits grew by $12.8 million, or 11.6% annualized growth whereas deposits decreased by $12.0 million, or (10.2%) annualized, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. For the six months ended March 31, 2014, deposits grew by $10.4 million, or 4.7% annualized growth.
  • In January 2014, we announced of the closing of two branch offices effective May 2014. Similar to our past efforts to reduce non-performing assets, we have reviewed the Company's real estate holdings related to bank operations and investment real estate properties. In conjunction with the branch closings and our review of our real estate holdings, we have listed $2.7 million of underperforming or unneeded office buildings for sale in the interest of improving future performance. These actions resulted in a charge during the quarter ended March 31, 2014 of $2.5 million, or $1.6 million, net of income taxes. We anticipate that the branch closings will result in expense savings in the future. In addition to the expense savings, the proceeds from the ultimate sale of these properties will be available to fund future loan growth.
  • Service fee income on deposit accounts was unchanged for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to the same period for 2013 although the average number of checking accounts was 2.7% lower in 2014 compared to 2013. During the three months ended March 31, 2014, our number of checking accounts was unchanged from December 31, 2013 even though we announced the closing of two offices in January 2014. Service fee income per account increased during the quarter as new marketing initiatives to increase the number of debit cards outstanding and the number of transactions per card have begun to take effect. Non-interest bearing checking accounts totaled $75.0 million, or 16.6%, of total deposits at March 31, 2014. Checking, savings and money market accounts totaled $359.4 million, or 79.6%, of total deposits at that date.
  • On April 28, 2014, the Company received correspondence from the Federal Reserve Bank noting that it had no objection to the termination of our Board resolution which required the Company to receive prior written non-objection from the Federal Reserve Bank to declare or pay dividends, issue debt or redeem Company stock. Our Board plans to address the termination of this resolution at its May 2014 meeting.
