Meta Financial Group, Inc. Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Tax Rate Guidance for 2015

Meta Financial Group, Inc. reported consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net earnings of $3.4 million or 53 cents per diluted share compared to $3.5 million or 58 cents per diluted share in the prior year period. Fourth quarter earnings included $0.6 million of provision expense related to loan growth, $0.6 million of acquisition-related expenses, $0.2 million of one-time expenses related to a partner servicing platform change, and $0.1 million related to settlement of a lawsuit where Meta was the plaintiff and settled for a lower amount to avoid the cost of litigation. Fourth quarter after tax earnings would have been $4.4 million or 69 cents per diluted share, excluding these items. Net interest income was $12.3 million compared to $9.2 million reported a year ago, primarily due to significant growth in lending in the Retail Bank segment. Total revenue (net interest income plus non-interest income) was $24.9 million compared to $22.6 million for the same quarter last year, an increase of $2.3 million, or 10%. Income before income tax expense was $3.77 million compared to $4.58 million reported a year ago. For the year, net income totaled $15.7 million or $2.53 per diluted share against $13.4 million or $2.38 per diluted share in 2013. Net interest income was $46.3 million in fiscal 2014, an improvement of $10.3 million, or 28% compared to $36.0 million in 2013. The increase was primarily driven by higher average earning assets and improved net interest margin. Contributing to this increase was a 27 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. Tangible book value per common share increased by $4.74, or 21%, to $27.91 per share at September 30, 2014 from $23.17 per share at September 30, 2013, primarily due to earnings for the year and a sizable increase in the fair market value of available-for-sale securities, which positively affected accumulated other comprehensive income. The tangible book value per common share excluding accumulated other comprehensive income was $28.47 as of September 30, 2014, compared to $26.51 as of September 30, 2013. Return on average assets for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2014, was 0.81% compared to 0.78% for 2013. Return on average equity was 10.01% compared to 9.36% for 2013. Total revenue for the year was $98.0 million compared to $91.5 million for 2013, an increase of $6.5 million, or 7%, due primarily to increased income from loan growth and improved yield and increased volume from other investments, specifically in the municipal bond portfolio and improved yields on agency mortgage-backed securities. Income before income tax expense was $18.62 million compared to $17.12 million reported a year ago. Book value per common share outstanding was $28.33 compared to $23.55 at September 30, 2013. The company expects the tax rate to be a few percent higher in 2015. For 2014, the effective tax rate was 15.6%.
