DOYLESTOWN, Penn., May 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HV Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company” or “HVB”) (Nasdaq Capital Market: HVBC), the holding company of Huntingdon Valley Bank (the “Bank”), reported operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, was $601,000 ($0.30 per basic share of common stock and $0.29 per diluted share of common stock) versus net income of $1.3 million ($0.66 per basic share of common stock and $0.65 per diluted share of common stock) for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. Book value per share increased from $18.32 per share of common stock to $19.13 per share of common stock at March 31, 2022 over the same period. For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, net interest income was $3.6 million and continues to expand with an increase 11% over the first quarter of the prior year.
Travis J. Thompson, Esq., Chairman & CEO, commented, “We are pleased to announce our financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 which highlighted our continued acceleration from a primarily 1-4 residential lender to a commercial business bank. Commercial loan originations reached $30 million in the quarter and total commercial loans outstanding increased $83.5 million year over year. This strategy continues to drive interest income and spread higher, while also increasing the quality of our earnings, which drives shareholder value.”
Mr. Thompson continued, “The residential mortgage market is in the process of adjusting to significantly higher mortgage rates, increasing home prices and continued limited inventory. While these headwinds pressure residential loan volumes, HVB remains dedicated to our mortgage business. We have been through these cycles before and we are committed to taking the steps necessary to maintain HVB as a premier lender in our markets, positioning ourselves to take market share as the residential mortgage market stabilizes.”
Highlights for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 include:
For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, net interest income was $3.6 million, an increase of 11% from the same period in 2021. The increase in net interest income was due to continued growth in the commercial loan portfolio, offset by lower PPP forgiveness compared to the first quarter of the prior year and a decrease in one-to-four family loans held for sale.
Net interest margin continues to improve, increasing from 2.02% for the three months ended March 31, 2021, to 2.74% for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Non-interest income decreased $960,000 from the quarter ended March 31, 2021 as a result of reduced mortgage origination volume, which is consistent with recent market conditions due to continued compression in available homes for sale and the decline in mortgage loan refinance opportunities due to the significant increase in interest rates.
Book value per share of common stock at March 31, 2022 was $19.13, versus $18.32 per share of common stock at March 31, 2021.
Balance Sheet: March 31, 2022, compared to December 31, 2021
Total assets decreased $3.6 million to $556.5 million at March 31, 2022, from $560.1 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily the result of decreases of $27.1 million in net loans held for sale, $3.2 million in mortgage servicing rights as a result of a bulk sale to an unrelated third party and $1.4 million in loans receivable, net offset by increases of $27.1 million in investment securities and $1.7 million in other assets.
Total liabilities decreased $2.4 million to $515.1 million at March 31, 2022, from $517.5 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease in total liabilities was primarily from a $2.9 million decrease in advances from the Federal Reserve's Paycheck Protection Program liquidity facility ("PPPLF"), $1.0 million decrease in other liabilities and $393,000 decrease in advances from borrowers for taxes and insurance offset by a $2.0 million increase in deposits. Deposits increased $2.0 million to $466.0 million at March 31, 2022 from $464.0 million at December 31, 2021. Our core deposits (consisting of demand deposits, money market, passbook and statement and checking accounts) increased $2.2 million to $434.0 million at March 31, 2022 from $431.8 million at December 31, 2021. Certificates of deposit decreased $114,000 to $32.1 million at March 31, 2022 from $32.2 million at December 31, 2021.
Total shareholders’ equity decreased $1.2 million to $41.4 million at March 31, 2022, compared to $42.6 million at December 31, 2021, primarily as a result of comprehensive loss of $1.8 million due to the fair value adjustments, net of deferred tax, on the investment securities available-for-sale portfolio and $147,000 in treasury stock repurchases primarily as part of the stock repurchase plan. Offsetting these decreases was net income of $601,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, share based compensation expense of $59,000, ESOP shares committed to be released of $46,000 and a stock option exercise of $21,000.

Non-interest income decreased $960,000 or 23.4% to $3.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $4.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to a decrease of $2.5 million in the gain on sale of loans, net offset by a $1.0 million gain on sale of mortgage servicing rights, net, and increase in other income of $283,000. Included in other income for the three months ended March 31, 2022, was $208,000 in death benefits for bank-owned life insurance.
Total non-interest expense increased $502,000, or 9.2%, to $5.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, from $5.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the three months of March 31, 2021, was primarily a result of increases of $287,000 in other expenses and $231,000 in salaries and employee benefits. Salaries increased as full time equivalent (FTE) employees increased to one-hundred forty-five as of March 31, 2022, from one-hundred thirty-nine as of March 31, 2021, primarily as a result of the expansion of the Company’s lending and business banking operations.
Income tax expense was $130,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, respectively, compared to $488,000 during the same period in fiscal year 2021. The decrease in income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the same period a year ago was a result of bank-owned life insurance death benefits and a decrease in income before taxes.
