1895 Bancorp of Wisconsin, Inc., Greenfield, Wisconsin Announces Financial Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2021

GREENFIELD, Wis., March 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 1895 Bancorp of Wisconsin, Inc., (NASDAQ: BCOW) (the “Company”), the holding company for PyraMax Bank, today announced unaudited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2021. 

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $85,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to $1.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2020.  The decrease in net income was primarily the result of a $2.5 million decrease in noninterest income and a $1.2 million increase in noninterest expense, offset by a $1.8 million decrease in income taxes, a $470,000 decrease in provision expense and a $248,000 increase in net interest income. 

Net interest income increased $248,000, or 2.0%, to $12.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, from $12.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.  The increase was due primarily to a $1.5 million, or 49.5%, decrease in interest expense, partially offset by a $1.3 million, or 8.1%, decrease in interest and dividend income.  The decrease in both interest expense and interest income was primarily due to the continued low interest rate environment which resulted in a decrease in our average yield on interest earning-assets and cost of interest-bearing liabilities.  The weighted average yield on our interest-earning assets decreased from 3.48% for 2020 to 2.84% for 2021 and our average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.91% for 2020 to 0.44% for 2021.

Provision for loan losses was $30,000 for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $500,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020. The allowance for loan losses was $2.9 million, or 0.88% of total loans, at December 31, 2021, compared to $2.7 million, or 0.82% of total loans, at December 31, 2020. Nonaccrual loans constituted 0.31% of total loans at December 31, 2021 and 0.39% of total loans at December 31, 2020.

Noninterest income decreased $2.5 million, or 37.0%, from $6.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 to $4.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The decrease was due primarily to a $2.0 million decrease in net gain on sale of loans and a $1.0 million decrease in net gains realized on the sale of securities.  The decrease in net gain on sale of loans was primarily due to a decrease in the volume of mortgage loans originated and sold.

Noninterest expense increased $1.2 million, or 7.9%, to $16.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 from $15.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase was due primarily to a $751,000 increase in salaries and employee benefits and a $344,000 increase in other noninterest expenses. 

Income tax benefit was $64,000 for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to income tax expense of $1.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. Included in income tax expense for 2020 was a $934,000 increase in our deferred tax valuation allowance.

Total assets were $539.6 million at December 31, 2021, an increase of $22.9 million, or 4.4%, compared to total assets of $516.8 million at December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase in available-for-sale securities of $53.7 million, partially offset by a decrease in cash and cash equivalents of $25.7 million.

Available for sale securities increased $53.7 million, or 91.5%, to $112.4 million at December 31, 2021, from $58.7 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in securities was the result of management’s decision to invest a portion of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents into securities with higher yields to increase future earnings, while maintaining a high degree of liquidity.

Net loans decreased $5.3 million, or 1.6%, to $323.8 million at December 31, 2021, from $329.1 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease was due primarily to a $12.2 million decrease in commercial loans and a $5.3 million decrease in consumer home equity and line of credit loans.  A significant portion of the decrease in commercial loans was the result of the forgiveness of PPP loans.  Partially offsetting these decreases was an $11.7 million increase in first mortgage residential real estate loans.  The increase in first mortgage loans was the result of management’s decision to retain more of these loans on our books, based on our liquidity and interest rate risk position at the time, in order to increase earnings by investing a portion of our liquidity in higher yielding assets. 

Deposits increased $4.7 million, or 1.2%, to $384.5 million at December 31, 2021, from $379.8 million at December 31, 2020. 

Borrowings, consisting entirely of FHLB advances, decreased $13.0 million, or 18.9%, to $55.4 million at December 31, 2021, from $68.4 million at December 31, 2020.  The decrease was due to the maturity and repayments of principal on outstanding advances. 

Total equity increased $30.9 million, or 51.5%, to $90.9 million at December 31, 2021, from $60.0 million at December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily due to the July 2021 capital raise which generated $35.4 million in gross proceeds.  At December 31, 2021, PyraMax Bank had a total risk-based capital ratio of 20.2% and a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 19.4%.
