Meta Financial Group, Inc. Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended June 30, 2014
Jul 30 14
Meta Financial Group, Inc. reported consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net income of $4.2 million or 68 cents per diluted share against $3.7 million or 66 cents per diluted share in the 2013 third quarter, notwithstanding current quarter higher provisions primarily due to loan growth and gains on investment sales in the previous year quarter. Net interest income was $11.9 million, an improvement of $2.7 million, or 30.2% compared to $9.2 million in the third quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily driven by higher average earning assets and improved net interest margin. Tangible book value per common share increased by $3.99, or 17.2%, from $23.17 at September 30, 2013 to $27.16 per share at June 30, 2014, partially due to a sizable increase in fair market value of available-for-sale securities, which positively affected other comprehensive income. The tangible book value per common share excluding accumulated other comprehensive income was $28.04 as of June 30, 2014, compared to $26.51 as of September 30, 2013. Total revenue (net interest income plus non-interest income) for the fiscal 2014 third quarter was $24.4 million compared to $22.7 million for the same quarter last year, an increase of $1.7 million, or 7%. Income before income tax expense was $5.27 million compared to $4.69 million reported a year ago. Interest income was $12.57 million compared to $9.82 million reported a year ago. Book value per common share was $27.56 compared to $23.55 as at September 30, 2013.
Return on average assets for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 was 0.86% compared to 0.77% for the prior year's comparable period. Return on average equity for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 was 10.80% compared to 9.09% for the prior year's comparable period. Fiscal year-to-date net income was $12.3 million, or $1.99 per diluted share, compared to $9.9 million, or $1.80 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period. Net interest income was $34.0 million compared to $26.9 million reported a year ago. Total revenue was $73.1 million compared to $68.9 million for the same period in 2013, an increase of $4.2 million, or 6%, due primarily to increased income from loan growth, improved yield and increased volume from other investments, specifically in the municipal bond portfolio, and improved yields on agency mortgage backed securities. Net interest income was up $7.1 million, or 26%, from the same period in fiscal 2013. Contributing to this increase was a 25 basis point increase in asset yields primarily driven by a shift in the earning asset mix to more loans and increased volume in the loan and securities portfolios. Income before income tax expense was $14.85 million compared to $12.54 million reported a year ago. Interest income was $35.8 million compared to $29.17 million reported a year ago.
