Business Description

Our principal lending activity is originating one- to four-family residential real estate loans, and, to a lesser extent, commercial real estate and multi-family loans and construction loans. We also originate consumer loans (including home equity lines of credit and automobile loans). Prior to 2012, we engaged in significant non-owner occupied one- to four-family and subprime lending. Since June 2012, we no longer make subprime loans, subject to very limited exceptions, and only make non-owner occupied single-family loans on a limited basis, subject to more stringent underwriting standards. In recent years we have expanded our commercial real estate loan portfolio in an effort to diversify our overall loan portfolio, increase the yield of our loans and shorten asset duration. We intend to continue to expand our commercial real estate, multi-family and construction lending in the future. We also offer commercial business loans, including SBA loans.

Prior to May 2013, our practice was to retain in our portfolio all of the loans we originate. However, since that time, we have implemented a policy of selling in the secondary market most of our newly originated fixed-rate one- to four-family residential mortgage loans with terms to maturity greater than 15 years, while retaining shorter-term fixed-rate and adjustable rate one- to four-family residential mortgages. Our decision to sell loans is based on our desire to manage interest rate risk, capital and our liquidity needs. We may, at times, retain within our loan portfolio a modest amount of longer-term residential mortgage loans.

Our lending is subject to written underwriting standards and origination procedures. Decisions on loan applications are made on the basis of detailed applications submitted by the prospective borrower and property valuations (consistent with our appraisal policy) prepared by outside independent licensed appraisers as well as internal evaluations, where permitted by regulations. The loan applications are designed primarily to determine the borrower’s ability to repay the requested loan, and the more significant items on the application are verified through use of credit reports, financial statements and tax returns.

When assessing the appropriateness of the allowance for loan losses, we consider its two key elements: (1) specific allowances for identified impaired loans; and (2) a general valuation allowance on the remainder of the loan portfolio. Although we determine the amount of each element of the allowance separately, the entire allowance for loan losses is available for the entire portfolio.

We identify loans that may need to be charged off as a loss by reviewing all delinquent loans, classified loans, and other loans about which management may have concerns about collectability. For individually reviewed loans, the borrower’s inability to make payments under the terms of the loan, as well as a shortfall in collateral value, could result in our charging off the loan or the portion of the loan that was impaired.

Among other factors, we consider current general economic conditions in determining the appropriateness of the allowance for loan losses for our residential real estate portfolio. We use evidence obtained from our own loan portfolio as well as published housing data on our local markets from third party sources we believe to be reliable as a basis for assumptions on real estate valuations.

Substantially all of our loans are secured by collateral. Loans 90 days past due and other classified loans are evaluated for impairment and general or specific allowances are established. Typically for a nonperforming real estate loan in the process of collection, the value of the underlying collateral is estimated using either the original independent appraisal, adjusted for current economic conditions and other factors, or a new independent appraisal or evaluation, and related general or specific allowances for loan losses are adjusted quarterly. If a nonperforming real estate loan is in the process of foreclosure and/or there are serious doubts about further collectability of principal or interest, and there is uncertainty about the value of the underlying collateral, we will order a new independent appraisal or evaluation if it has not already been obtained. Any shortfall would result in immediately charging off that portion of the loan that was impaired.

Deposits have traditionally been our primary source of funds for use in lending and investment activities. We also use borrowings, primarily FHLB-Cincinnati advances, to supplement cash flow needs, lengthen the maturities of liabilities for interest rate risk purposes and to manage the cost of funds. In addition, we receive funds from scheduled loan payments, investment maturities, loan prepayments, retained earnings and income on earning assets. While scheduled loan payments and income on earning assets are relatively stable sources of funds, deposit inflows and outflows can vary widely and are influenced by prevailing interest rates, market conditions and levels of competition. We may utilize repurchase agreements or federal funds sold as funding sources, although we have not used these funding sources during recent periods.
