HMN Financial Inc. (HMNF) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2011-03-31.

Hmn Financial Inc. has a market cap of $12.7 million; its shares were traded at around $2.9 with and P/S ratio of 0.2.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.4 million, an improvement of $2.2 million compared to a net loss of $1.8 million for the first quarter of 2010. Net loss available to common shareholders was $32,000 for the first quarter of 2011, an improvement of $2.3 million, or 98.6%, from the net loss available to common shareholders of $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2010. Diluted loss per common share for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.01, an improvement of $0.60 from the diluted loss per common share of $0.61 for the first quarter of 2010. The improvement in net income was due primarily to a $4.6 million decrease in the provision for loan losses between the periods that was partially offset by a $1.2 million increase in income taxes and a $0.8 million increase in the losses recognized on the sale of real estate owned between the periods.

Net interest income was $7.4 million for the first quarter of 2011, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 6.5%, compared to $8.0 million for the first quarter of 2010. Interest income was $10.7 million for the first quarter of 2011, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 17.0%, from $12.9 million for the first quarter of 2010. Interest income decreased between the periods primarily because of a $143 million decrease in average interest-earning assets between the periods. Average interest earning assets decreased between the periods primarily because of a decrease in the commercial loan portfolio, which occurred because of declining loan demand and the Companys focus on improving credit quality, reducing loan concentrations, managing interest rate risk and improving capital ratios. The average yield earned on interest-earning assets was 5.21% for the first quarter of 2011, a decrease of 15 basis points from the 5.36% average yield for the first quarter of 2010.

Interest expense was $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2011, a decrease of $1.6 million, or 33.9%, compared to $4.9 million for the first quarter of 2010. Interest expense decreased primarily because of a $124 million decrease in the average outstanding balance of interest-bearing liabilities and noninterest bearing deposits between the periods. The decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities is primarily the result of a decrease in the outstanding borrowings and brokered certificates of deposits between the periods. The decrease in borrowings and brokered deposits between the periods was the result of using the proceeds from loan principal payments to fund maturing borrowings and brokered deposits. Interest expense also decreased because of the lower interest rates paid on money market accounts and certificates of deposits. The decreased rates were the result of the low interest rate environment that continued to exist during the first quarter of 2011. The average interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 1.66% for the first quarter of 2011, a decrease of 51 basis points from the 2.17% average interest rate paid in the first quarter of 2010.

Non-interest income was $1.8 million for the first quarter of 2011, an increase of $0.2 million, or 13.5%, from $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2010. Gain on sales of loans increased $181,000 between the periods due to an increase in the gains recognized on the sale of commercial government guaranteed loans that was partially offset by a decrease in the gain recognized on the sale of single family loans due to a decrease in single family loan originations between the periods. Fees and service charges increased $82,000 between the periods primarily because of an increase in late fees and overdraft charges. Other non-interest income decreased $33,000 between the periods primarily because of decreased rental income on other real estate owned. Loan servicing fees decreased $18,000 between the periods primarily because of a decrease in the number of commercial loans that are being serviced for others.

Non-interest expense was $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2011, an increase of $0.8 million, or 12.9%, from $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2010. The loss on real estate owned increased $808,000 between the periods from a gain in the first quarter of 2010 to a loss in the first quarter of 2011. Compensation expense increased $111,000 primarily because of increased personnel in the commercial loan recovery area. Other non-interest expense increased $83,000 between the periods primarily because of increased legal expenses related to non-performing assets and regulatory compliance. Deposit insurance expense decreased $113,000 primarily because of the decrease in outstanding brokered deposits between the periods. Occupancy expense decreased $91,000 primarily because of a decrease in depreciation expense. Data processing expense decreased $23,000 primarily due to a decrease in debit card expenses as a result of changing vendors in the fourth quarter of 2010.

The effect of income taxes changed $1.2 million between the periods from a benefit of $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2010 to an expense of $76,000 in the first quarter of 2011. The Company continues to record a valuation reserve against the entire deferred tax asset balance at March 31, 2011. Since the valuation reserve is established against the entire deferred tax asset balance, the only amount included as income tax expense for the first quarter of 2011 relates to the taxes on the change in the fair market value of the available for sale investment portfolio.
