First Northwest Bancorp Reports Results of Operations for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2018

PORT ANGELES, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–First Northwest Bancorp (NASDAQ: FNWB) (“Company”), the holding company
for First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Port Angeles (“Bank”),
announced its operating results for the quarter and nine months ended
September 30, 2018. The Company reported net income of $1.9 million for
the quarter ended September 30, 2018, or $0.19 per basic and diluted
share, compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.15 per basic and
diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, and net income of
$1.8 million, or $0.17 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter
ended September 30, 2017. Net income increased $400,000 compared to the
linked quarter mainly due to an increase in interest and fees on loans
receivable coupled with a decrease in the provision for loan losses and
noninterest expenses, partially offset by an increase in interest
expense. Net income increased $153,000 compared to the same quarter one
year prior, mainly due to an increase in net interest income and
noninterest income, partially offset by increases in the provision for
loan losses and noninterest expense.

Net income was $5.0 million, or $0.48 per basic and $0.47 per diluted
share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, a decrease of
$77,000 compared to net income of $5.1 million, or $0.47 per basic and
diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. While net
income before taxes remained relatively stable, with a lower tax rate in
2018 benefiting net income after taxes, overall earnings improvement was
realized year over year. In 2017, a one-time, non-taxable bank-owned
life insurance benefit of $768,000 contributed to higher noninterest
income of $791,000 when compared to 2018. Interest income, however,
increased $4.3 million while interest expense and provision for loan
losses grew $2.0 million and $402,000, respectively, for the nine months
ended September 30, 2018 compared to the same period in 2017, resulting
in an increase in net interest income after provision for loan losses of
$1.9 million. We continued to grow our portfolio of loans, expand our
geographic footprint, and invest in our personnel and infrastructure,
resulting in higher noninterest expenses in 2018 compared to prior
years, but we believe investing in our business will contribute
positively to sustainable earnings and balance sheet growth.

Larry Hueth, President and CEO, commented, “We experienced solid
improvement in net income on both a linked quarter and year over year
basis with an improving earning asset mix. Net interest income continues
to show improvement in spite of a challenging yield curve environment
and increased competition for deposits. Asset quality remained solid at
this stage of the economic cycle, and our branches continue to increase
in deposit market share, improving their efficiency as a funding source.
Our focus will be to continue shifting the earning asset mix, where
prudent, while managing expenses and capital in order to improve our
efficiency ratio, earnings per share, and return on equity as we strive
to attain a level of performance commensurate with our more seasoned
public company peers.”

Quarter highlights (at or for the quarter ended September 30, 2018)

Net income increased $400,000 compared to the quarter ended June 30,
2018;

Basic and diluted earnings per share increased $0.04 to $0.19 compared
to $0.15 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018;

Investment securities increased $14.2 million, primarily due to the
purchase of securities partially offset by sales, repayment, and
amortization activity;

Loans receivable increased $18.1 million, primarily due to growth in
auto and commercial real estate loans;

Deposits increased $38.3 million mainly due to continued efforts to
expand deposit relationships with competitive pricing and products;

The Company repurchased 126,200 shares of common stock at an average
price of $16.41 per share for a total of $2.1 million during the
quarter under the 2017 Stock Repurchase Plan approved in September
2017.

Balance Sheet Review

During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, total assets increased
$34.5 million to $1.2 billion, primarily due to increases in net loans
receivable and investment securities, which were funded mainly through
deposit growth as noted below. Total assets increased $87.5 million from
$1.2 billion at September 30, 2017, primarily due to growth in net loans
receivable, funded by deposit growth and an increase in borrowings.

Investment securities increased $14.2 million during the quarter to
$311.0 million, or 25.1% of total assets, at September 30, 2018, and
decreased $30.2 million compared to $341.2 million at September 30,
2017. During the most recent quarter, we purchased approximately $25.1
million and sold approximately $2.0 million of investment securities. We
will continue to evaluate investment opportunities that would allow us
to prudently leverage capital and improve earnings while also continuing
to focus on growing our loan portfolio and improving our earning asset
mix over the long term.

U.S. government agency issued mortgage-backed securities (“MBS agency”)
comprised the largest portion of our investment portfolio at 56.8%, and
totaled $176.7 million at September 30, 2018, an increase during the
quarter of $13.6 million from $163.2 million at June 30, 2018. Other
investment securities were $123.3 million at September 30, 2018, an
increase of $3.1 million from $120.2 million at June 30, 2018. Total
investment securities decreased $30.2 million at September 30, 2018,
compared to $341.2 million at September 30, 2017, which included
decreases of $20.1 million in other investment securities and $10.1
million in mortgage-backed securities. The year over year decrease was
the result of sales, prepayment activity, and normal amortization,
partially offset by new investment purchases. The estimated average life
of the total investment securities portfolio was 5.4 years at
September 30, 2018, and 5.3 years at June 30, 2018. The average
repricing term of our investment securities portfolio was approximately
4.0 years at both September 30, 2018 and June 30, 2018, and 3.5 years at
September 30, 2017, based on the interest rate environment at those
times.

Total loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $17.6 million to
$845.8 million at September 30, 2018, from $828.2 million at June 30,
2018. Other consumer, commercial real estate, and construction loans
increased $14.7 million, $7.2 million, and $2.3 million, respectively,
while multi-family and one- to four-family residential loans decreased
$2.9 million and $2.7 million, respectively. There were $63.1 million in
undisbursed construction loan commitments at September 30, 2018,
compared to $71.3 million at June 30, 2018, a decrease of $8.2 million,
resulting from construction draw activity in excess of new originations
and completed projects converting to permanent financing. We continue to
grow the auto loan portfolio through our indirect lending and specialty
auto loan purchasing programs, adding $18.2 million of newly originated
auto loans during the quarter, which was the main contributor to the
increase in auto and other consumer loans. Compared to September 30,
2017, total loans, excluding loans held for sale, increased $111.6
million attributable to increases in other consumer loans of $46.7
million, commercial real estate loans of $44.6 million, multi-family
loans of $26.2 million, one- to four-family residential loans of $13.1
million, and home equity loans of $3.7 million, partially offset by a
decrease in construction and land loans of $22.8 million.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, total liabilities increased
$35.6 million to $1.1 billion, primarily the result of an increase in
deposits of $38.3 million to $931.6 million at September 30, 2018, from
$893.3 million at June 30, 2018, and a decrease in borrowings of $4.7
million to $121.5 million at September 30, 2018, from $126.3 million at
June 30, 2018. Deposits increased as the result of increases in all
categories, including $5.7 million in money market accounts, $4.8
million in certificates of deposit, $16.9 million in savings accounts,
and $10.8 million in transaction accounts. The decrease in borrowings
was due to decreases in short-term FHLB advances during the quarter.

Total liabilities increased $93.5 million over the last year, mainly
attributable to growth in deposits of $80.7 million and an increase in
borrowings of $9.9 million. Deposit increases were primarily the result
of our continuing efforts to expand commercial and consumer deposit
relationships in our new Kitsap and Whatcom County, Washington
locations, as well as within our historic Clallam and Jefferson County,
Washington locations. We continue to rely on borrowings to fund loan
growth, investment securities portfolio activities, and general
operating cash flow ne.

Total shareholders’ equity decreased $1.0 million during the quarter to
$171.9 million at September 30, 2018, mainly the result of a $1.1
million decrease in value of our available-for-sale securities portfolio
resulting in additional unrealized losses and a decrease of $2.1 million
from the repurchase of shares of common stock, partially offset by net
income of $1.9 million.

Operating Results

Net income increased $400,000 to $1.9 million for the quarter ended
September 30, 2018, compared to net income of $1.5 million for the
quarter ended June 30, 2018. The increase during the quarter was mainly
due to increases in interest income of $274,000 and decreases in
noninterest expense of $179,000. Net income increased $153,000 compared
to the quarter ended September 30, 2017, primarily due to a $605,000
increase in net interest income after provision for loan losses coupled
with a decrease in provision for income tax of $138,000, partially
offset by a $278,000 decrease in noninterest income and a $312,000
increase in noninterest expense.

Net interest income after the provision for loan losses increased
$304,000 to $9.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, from
$8.8 million for the preceding quarter mainly due to an increase in
interest income. Net interest income after the provision for loan losses
increased $605,000 compared to $8.5 million for the quarter ended
September 30, 2017, due to an increase in net interest income of
$802,000, partially offset by a $197,000 increase in the provision for
loan losses. The decrease in the provision for loan losses of $198,000
during the most recent quarter compared to the prior quarter, was
primarily due to an increase in the balance of loans in categories with
historically good credit quality. Total interest income increased
$274,000 to $11.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018,
compared to the previous quarter ended June 30, 2018, and increased $1.5
million compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2017, primarily due
to an increase in the average balance of, and an increase in interest
and fees on, loans receivable.

Total interest expense increased $168,000 to $2.3 million for the
quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the quarter ended June 30,
2018, and increased $710,000 compared to the quarter ended September 30,
2017, due to increases in the average balances of, and interest rates
paid on, deposits and FHLB advances. We continue to compete to attract
and retain deposits and utilize short-term FHLB advances to fund our
operations and purchase additional interest-earning assets.

The net interest margin increased three basis points to 3.25% for the
quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to 3.22% for the prior
quarter ended June 30, 2018, and increased five basis points from 3.20%
for the same period in 2017. The net interest margin was higher during
the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the prior quarters
ended June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, mainly due to an increase in
the average balance of loans receivable earning higher yields than other
interest-bearing assets and improving the margin over interest-bearing
liabilities.

Noninterest income increased $15,000 to $1.4 million for the quarter
ended September 30, 2018, compared to the prior quarter ended June 30,
2018. The increase was primarily due to increases in loan and deposit
service fees of $207,000, partially offset by decreases in the net gain
on the sale of investment securities of $71,000, net gain on sale of
loans of $11,000, other income of $64,000, and mortgage servicing fees,
net of amortization of $47,000. Noninterest income decreased $278,000,
compared to $1.7 million for the same quarter in 2017, the result of
decreases in net gain on sale of loans of $238,000, mortgage servicing
fees, net of amortization of $91,000, net gain on sale of investment
securities of $194,000, and cash surrender value of bank-owned life
insurance of $8,000, partially offset by increases in other income of
$44,000, and loan and deposit service fees of $209,000.

Noninterest expense decreased $179,000 to $8.1 million for the quarter
ended September 30, 2018, compared to $8.3 million for the quarter ended
June 30, 2018, primarily due to decreases in professional fees and
advertising of $139,000 and $105,000, respectively, partially offset by
an increase in other expense of $102,000. Noninterest expense increased
$312,000 compared to $7.8 million for the same quarter in 2017,
primarily due to increases in compensation and benefits of $274,000,
occupancy and equipment of $97,000, advertising of $43,000, and data
processing $72,000, partially offset by a decrease in professional fees
of $147,000 as we continue to grow our business and expand our
geographic footprint.

Capital Ratios and Credit Quality

The Company and the Bank continue to maintain capital levels in excess
of the applicable regulatory requirements and the Bank was categorized
as “well-capitalized” at September 30, 2018.

Nonperforming loans increased $411,000 during the quarter ended
September 30, 2018, to $2.5 million at September 30, 2018, from $2.1
million at June 30, 2018, mainly due to an increase in nonperforming
one- to four-family residential loans of $444,000. Nonperforming loans
to total loans was 0.3% at September 30, 2018 and June 30, 2018, and
0.2% at September 30, 2017. The percentage of the allowance for loan
losses to nonperforming loans decreased to 377.5% at September 30, 2018,
from 450.2% at June 30, 2018, and 479.8% at September 30, 2017.
Classified loans decreased $120,000 to $3.7 million at September 30,
2018, from $3.8 million at June 30, 2018, reflecting improved
performance of commercial real estate loans during the quarter.
Nonperforming loans increased $679,000 from $3.3 million at
September 30, 2017, mainly the result of reduced credit quality in
commercial business loans. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage
of total loans was 1.1% at both September 30, 2018 and June 30, 2018.
There was no material change in the allowance for loan losses as a
percentage of total loans during the quarter due to continued overall
strong asset quality and minimal net loan charge-offs. Fluctuations in
the balance of nonperforming assets and other credit quality measures
are expected as we increase the balance of our loan portfolio.
