Net Interest Income

Net interest income on a fully tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, was $7.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, increasing $0.6 million, or 9.1 percent, from $6.4 million for the comparable three-month period in fiscal 2017. The change for the three months ended June 30, 2018 primarily was the result of an increase in the average balance of interest earning assets, which increased $76.9 million. For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company’s net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, increased to 2.75 percent as compared to 2.72 percent for the same three-month period in fiscal 2017.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, total interest and dividend income on a fully tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure, increased $1.2 million, or 13.7 percent, to $10.2 million, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017. Interest income rose in the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2017, primarily due to a $72.2 million increase in the average balance of our loans. Total interest expense increased by $0.6 million, or 25.2 percent, to $3.2 million, for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to the same period in fiscal 2017 due to the increase of $65.6 million in average funding sources, as described below.

The 25.2 percent increase in interest expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was primarily due to an increase in average rates. The average cost of funds was 1.45 percent for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 compared to 1.25 percent for the same three-month period in fiscal 2017 and, on a linked sequential quarter basis, increased six basis points compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2018, total interest and dividend income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $5.1 million, or 20.9 percent, to $29.5 million, compared to $24.4 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2017. Total interest expense increased by $2.9 million, or 43.2 percent, to $9.5 million, for the nine months ended June 30, 2018, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2017. Interest income rose for the nine months ended June 30, 2018, compared to the comparable period in fiscal 2017 primarily due to a $132.0 million increase in average loan balances. Compared to the same period in fiscal 2017, for the nine months ended June 30, 2018, average interest earning assets increased $151.1 million, the net interest spread decreased on an annualized tax-equivalent basis by thirteen basis points and the net interest margin decreased on an annualized tax-equivalent basis by ten basis points.

Joseph Gangemi, Chief Financial Officer of Malvern Bancorp, Inc., added, “The decrease in cash quarter over quarter reflects an investment of our excess cash holdings into loans, which had an overall positive impact for the period including expansion of the margin. We anticipate replenishing the liquidity pool at commensurate rates to the market, therefore the traction to increase margin has been more gradual.”

Other Income

Total other income decreased $99,000, or 12.2 percent, for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with the same period in fiscal 2017. The decrease in total other income was primarily due to a $374,000 decrease in net gains on sales of investment securities, a $28,000 decrease in net gains on sale of loans, and a $6,000 decrease in earnings on bank-owned insurance offset by an increase of $297,000 in other fees and service charges and a $12,000 increase in rental income.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2018, total other income increased $1.1 million compared to the same period in fiscal 2017, primarily as a result of a $1.2 million net gain on the sale of real estate, an increase of $308,000 in other fees and service charges and a $35,000 increase in rental income offset by a $432,000 decrease in net gains on sales of investment securities, a $10,000 decrease in net gains on sale of loans, and a $21,000 decrease in earnings on bank-owned insurance.

Other Expense

Total other expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018, increased $804,000, or 20.2 percent, when compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The increase primarily reflected increases in salaries and employee benefits of $151,000, a $44,000 increase in occupancy expense, a $467,000 increase in professional fees, and a $215,000 increase in other operating expense. The increase was offset by a $2,000 decrease in the federal deposit insurance premium, a $37,000 decrease in advertising expense, and a $34,000 decrease in data processing expense. The increase in salaries and employee benefits primarily reflects higher compensation and related costs due to added staff to support overall franchise growth. The increase in occupancy expense was mainly due to expanded locations. Professional fees reflect increased legal and accounting fees for the period related to prior period restatements, which the Company does not expect to continue into future periods.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2018, total other expense increased $2.0 million, or 17.9 percent, compared to the same period in fiscal 2017. The increase primarily reflected increases in salaries and employee benefits of $626,000, a $184,000 increase in occupancy expense, a $54,000 increase in the federal deposit insurance premium, a $905,000 increase in professional fees, and a $424,000 increase in other operating expense. The increase was offset by a $92,000 decrease in data processing expense and a $69,000 decrease advertising expense.

Total income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $69,000 compared to $863,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Asset Quality

Non-accrual loans were $2.0 million at June 30, 2018 an increase of $1.0 million or 95.0 percent, as compared to September 30, 2017, and an increase of $0.4 million as compared to June 30, 2017. Other real estate owned (“OREO”) remained at zero at June 30, 2018, September 30, 2017 and June 30, 2017. The increase in non-accrual loans at June 30, 2018 compared to September 30, 2017 was primarily due to one legacy commercial loan, with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $0.6 million moving to non-accrual status in the first quarter of 2018. Total performing troubled debt restructured (TDR) loans were $18.7 million at June 30, 2018, $2.2 million at September 30, 2017 and $1.6 million at June 30, 2017. The increase in TDR loans at June 30, 2018 compared to September 30, 2017 was primarily due to two commercial loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of approximately $16.4 million moving to performing TDR status in the second fiscal quarter of 2018.

At June 30, 2018, non-performing assets totaled $3.4 million, or 0.32 percent of total assets, as compared with $1.2 million, or 0.12 percent, at September 30, 2017 and $1.9 million, or 0.19 percent, at June 30, 2017. The increase in non-performing assets at June 30, 2018 compared to September 30, 2017 was primarily due to the addition of five single residential loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of $0.5 million, one commercial loan with an outstanding balance of $0.6 million and seven consumer loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of $0.2 million moving into non-accrual status and a $1.0 million increase in residential mortgage loans receivable greater than 90 days and accruing.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Reported amounts are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The Company’s management believes that the supplemental non-GAAP information provided in this press release is utilized by market analysts and others to evaluate a company’s financial condition and, therefore, that such information is useful to investors. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures presented by other companies.

The Company’s other income is presented in the table below including and excluding net investment securities gains. The Company’s management believes that many investors desire to evaluate other income without regard to such gains.

“Efficiency ratio” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as other expense, excluding certain non-core items, as a percentage of net interest income on a tax equivalent basis plus other income, excluding net securities gains, calculated as follows:

(dollars in thousands) For the quarter ended: 6/30/18 3/31/18 12/31/17 9/30/17 6/30/17 Other expense $ 4,790 $ 4,105 $ 4,471 $ 3,813 $ 3,986 Less: non-core items(1) 713 43 72 29 72 - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - Other expense, excluding non-core items $ 4,077 $ 4,062 $ 4,399 $ 3,784 $ 3,914 - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - Net interest income (tax $ 7,021 $ 6,597 $ 6,393 $ 6,729 $ 6,433 equivalent basis) Other income, excluding net investment securities gains and 715 449 525 501 440 gains on sale of real estate Total $ 7,736 $ 7,046 $ 6,918 $ 7,230 $ 6,873 - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - - ----- - Efficiency ratio 52.7 % 57.7 % 63.6 % 55.4 % 57.0 % ______________________ (1) Non-core items for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 consisted of additional legal and accounting fees arising out of matters pertaining to prior period restatements. Non-core items for prior periods consisted of expenses related to the Company’s corporate restructuring initiatives, such as professional fees, litigation and settlement costs, severance costs and external payroll development costs. The Company believes these adjustments are necessary to provide the most accurate measure of core operating results as a means to evaluate comparative results.

The Company’s efficiency ratio, calculated on a GAAP basis without excluding net investment securities gains and without deducting non-core items from other expense, follows:

For the quarter ended: 6/30/18 3/31/18 12/31/17 9/30/17 6/30/17 Efficiency ratio on a GAAP basis 62.3 % 58.5 % 55.2 % 52.7 % 55.3 %

Net interest margin, which is non-interest income as a percentage of average interest-earning assets, is presented on a fully tax equivalent (“TE”) basis as we believe this non-GAAP measure is the preferred industry measurement for this item. The Company revised its estimated annual effective rate to reflect a change in the federal statutory rate from 35% to 21%, resulting from the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The TE basis adjusts GAAP interest income and yields for the tax benefit of income on certain tax-exempt investments using the blended statutory rate of 24.5% for the current period and 34% for each of the prior periods presented. Below is a reconciliation of GAAP net interest income to the TE basis and the related GAAP basis and TE net interest margins for the periods presented.
