Description of the company
Bank Mutual Corporation (the “Company”) is a Wisconsin corporation headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Company owns 100% of the common stock of Bank Mutual (the “Bank”) and currently engages in no substantial activities other than its ownership of such stock. Consequently, the Company’s net income and cash flows are derived primarily from the Bank’s operations and capital distributions. The Company is regulated as a savings and loan holding company by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (“FRB”). The Company’s common stock trades on The NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol BKMU.
The Bank was founded in 1892 and is a federally-chartered savings bank headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is regulated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (“OCC”) and its deposits are insured within limits established by the FDIC. The Bank's primary business is community banking, which includes attracting deposits from and making loans to the general public and private businesses, as well as governmental and non-profit entities. In addition to deposits, the Bank obtains funds through borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) of Chicago. These funding sources are principally used to originate loans, including commercial and industrial loans, multi-family residential loans, non-residential commercial real estate loans, one- to four-family loans, home equity loans, and other consumer loans. From time-to-time the Bank also purchases and/or participates in loans from third-party financial institutions and is an active seller of residential loans in the secondary market. It also invests in mortgage-related and other investment securities.
The Company’s principal executive office is located at 4949 West Brown Deer Road, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 53223, and its telephone number at that location is (414) 354-1500. The Company’s website is www.bankmutualcorp.com. The Company will make available through that website, free of charge, its Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K, and amendments to those reports, as soon as reasonably practical after the Company files those reports with, or furnishes them to, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Also available on the Company’s website are various documents relating to the corporate governance of the Company, including its Code of Ethics and its Code of Conduct.
At December 31, 2016, the Company had 64 banking offices in Wisconsin and one in Minnesota. The Company is the third largest financial institution headquartered in Wisconsin based on total assets and the fourth largest based on deposit market share. At June 30, 2016, the Company had a 1.30% market share of all deposits held by FDIC-insured institutions in Wisconsin.
The largest concentration of the Company’s offices is in southeastern Wisconsin, consisting of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Statistical Area (“MSA”), and Racine and Kenosha Counties. The Company has 24 offices in these areas. The Company also has five offices in south central Wisconsin, consisting of the Madison MSA and the Janesville/Beloit MSA, as well as five other offices in communities in east central Wisconsin. The Company also operates 17 banking offices in northeastern Wisconsin, including the Green Bay MSA. Finally, the Company has 13 offices in northwestern Wisconsin, including the Eau Claire MSA, and one office in Woodbury, Minnesota, which is part of the Minneapolis-St. Paul MSA. A number of the Company’s banking offices are located near the Michigan and Illinois borders. Therefore, the Company may also draw customers from nearby regions in those states.
The services provided through the Company's banking offices are supplemented by services offered through ATMs located in the Company’s market areas, as well as internet and mobile banking, remote deposit capture, a customer service call center, and 24-hour telephone banking.
The Company faces significant competition in attracting deposits, making loans, and selling other financial products and services. Wisconsin has many banks, savings banks, savings and loan associations, and tax-exempt credit unions, which offer the same types of banking products and services as the Company. The Company also faces competition from other types of financial service companies, such as mortgage brokerage firms, finance companies, insurance companies, investment brokerage firms, and mutual funds. As a result of advancements in information technology and increases in internet-based commerce in recent years, the Company also competes with financial service providers outside of Wisconsin, as well as non-bank financial technology firms that offer products and services that compete with those offered by the Company.
General At December 31, 2016, the Company’s total loans receivable was $1.9 billion or 73.4% of total assets. The Company’s loan portfolio consists of loans to both commercial and retail borrowers. Loans to commercial borrowers include loans secured by real estate such as multi-family properties, non-residential commercial properties (referred to as “commercial real estate”), and construction and development projects secured by these same types of properties, as well as land. In addition, commercial loans include loans to businesses that are not secured by real estate (referred to as “commercial and industrial loans”). Loans to retail borrowers include loans to individuals that are secured by real estate such as one- to four-family first mortgages, home equity term loans, and home equity lines of credit. In addition, retail loans include student loans, automobile loans, and other loans not secured by real estate (collectively referred to as “other consumer loans”).
The nature, type, and terms of loans originated or purchased by the Company are subject to federal and state laws and regulations. The Company has no significant concentrations of loans to particular borrowers or to borrowers engaged in similar activities. In addition, the Company limits its lending activities primarily to borrowers and related loan collateral located in its primary market areas, which consist of Wisconsin and contiguous regions of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and northern Michigan. However, from time-to-time the Company will make loans secured by properties outside of its primary market areas provided the borrowers are located within such areas and are well-known to the Company. For specific information related to the Company’s loans receivable for the periods covered by this report, refer to “Financial Condition—Loans Receivable” in “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.”
Commercial and Industrial Loans At December 31, 2016, the Company’s portfolio of commercial and industrial loans was $241.7 million or 11.0% of its gross loans receivable. This portfolio consists of loans and lines of credit to businesses for equipment purchases, working capital, debt refinancing or restructuring, business acquisition or expansion, Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans, and domestic standby letters of credit. The unfunded portion of approved commercial and industrial lines of credit and letters of credit was $185.5 million as of December 31, 2016. Typically, commercial and industrial loans are secured by general business security agreements and personal guarantees. The Company offers variable, adjustable, and fixed-rate commercial and industrial loans. The Company also has commercial and industrial loans that have an initial period where interest rates are fixed, generally for one to five years, and thereafter are adjustable based on various market indices. Fixed-rate loans are priced at either a margin over various market indices with maturities that correspond to the maturities of the notes or to match competitive conditions and yield requirements. Term loans are generally amortized over a three to seven year period. Commercial lines of credit generally have a term of one year and are subject to annual renewal thereafter. The Company performs an annual credit review of all commercial and industrial borrowers having an exposure to the Company of $500,000 or more.
Multi-family and Commercial Real Estate Loans At December 31, 2016, the Company’s aggregate portfolio of multi-family and commercial real estate loans was $881.6 million or 40.2% of its gross loans receivable. The Company’s multi-family and commercial real estate loan portfolios consist of fixed-rate and adjustable-rate loans originated at prevailing market rates usually tied to various market indices. This portfolio generally consists of loans secured by apartment buildings, office buildings, retail centers, warehouses, and industrial buildings. Loans in this portfolio may be secured by either owner or non-owner occupied properties. Loans in this portfolio typically do not exceed 80% of the lesser of the purchase price or an independent appraisal by an appraiser designated by the Company. Loans originated with balloon maturities are generally amortized on a 20 to 30 year basis with a typical balloon term of 3 to 10 years. If a multi-family or commercial real estate borrower desires a fixed-rate loan with a balloon maturity beyond five years, the Company generally requires the borrower to commit to an adjustable-rate loan that is converted back into a fixed-rate exposure through an interest rate swap agreement between the Company and the borrower. The Company then enters into an offsetting interest rate swap agreement with a third-party financial institution that converts the Company’s interest rate risk exposure back into a floating-rate exposure. The Company will generally record fee income related to the difference in the fair values of the respective interest rate swaps on the date of the transaction. Refer to “Financial Derivatives,” below, for additional discussion.
Loans secured by multi-family and commercial real estate are granted based on the income producing potential of the property, the financial strength and/or income producing potential of the borrower, and the appraised value of the property. In most cases, the Company also obtains personal guarantees from the principals involved, the assessment of which is also based on financial strength and/or income producing potential. The Company’s approval process includes a review of the other debt obligations and overall sources of cash flow available to the borrower and guarantors. The property’s expected net operating income must be sufficient to cover the payments relating to the outstanding debt. The Company generally requires an assignment of rents or leases to be assured that the cash flow from the property will be used to repay the debt. Appraisals on properties securing multi-family and larger commercial real estate loans are performed by independent state certified or licensed appraisers approved by the board of directors. Title and hazard insurance are required as well as flood insurance, if applicable. Environmental assessments are performed on certain multi-family and commercial real estate loans in excess of $1.0 million, as well as all loans secured by certain properties that the Company considers to be “environmentally sensitive.” In addition, the Company performs an annual credit review of its multi-family and commercial real estate loans over $500,000.
Loans secured by multi-family and commercial real estate properties are generally larger and involve a greater degree of credit risk than one- to four-family residential mortgage loans. Such loans typically involve large balances to single borrowers or groups of related borrowers. The Bank has internal lending limits to single borrowers or a group of related borrowers that are adjusted from time-to-time, but are generally well below the Bank’s legal lending limit of approximately $42.8 million as of December 31, 2016. Because payments on loans secured by multi-family and commercial real estate properties are often dependent on the successful operation or management of the properties, repayment of such loans may be subject to adverse conditions in the real estate market or the economy. Furthermore, borrowers’ problems in areas unrelated to the properties that secure the Company’s loans may have an adverse impact on such borrowers’ ability to comply with the terms of the Company’s loans.
