NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2012 AND 2011 AND DECEMBER 31, 2011
 
 
 
 
 
 


NOTE 1.  NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Nature of Business
SI Financial Group, Inc. (the “Company”) is the holding company for Savings Institute Bank and Trust Company (the “Bank”).  Established in 1842, the Bank is a community-oriented financial institution headquartered in Willimantic, Connecticut.  The Bank provides a variety of financial services to individuals, businesses and municipalities through its twenty-one offices in eastern Connecticut.  Its primary products include savings, checking and certificate of deposit accounts, residential and commercial mortgage loans, commercial business loans and consumer loans.  In addition, wealth management services, which include trust, financial planning, life insurance and investment services, are offered to individuals and businesses through the Bank’s offices.  The Company does not conduct any material business other than owning all of the stock of the Bank and making payments on the subordinated debentures held by the Company.

In January 2011, the Company completed a public stock offering and concurrent conversion of the Bank from the mutual holding company form of organization to the stock form of organization (the "Conversion"). A total of 6,544,493 shares of common stock were sold in the subscription and community offerings at $8.00 per share.  Additional shares totaling 4,032,356 were issued in exchange for shares of the former SI Financial Group, Inc. at an exchange ratio of 0.8981.  Shares outstanding after the stock offering and the exchange totaled 10,576,849.  

Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary, the Bank, and the Bank’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, 803 Financial Corp., SI Mortgage Company and SI Realty Company, Inc.  All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

Basis of Financial Statement Presentation
The interim consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information, with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and general practices within the banking industry.  Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements have been omitted.  Information in the accompanying interim consolidated financial statements and notes to the financial statements of the Company as of June 30, 2012 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 is unaudited.  These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of the Company and the accompanying notes for the year ended December 31, 2011 contained in the Company’s Form 10-K.

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements reflect all of the adjustments, consisting only of normal and recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows as of and for the period covered herein.  The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the year ending December 31, 2012.

In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities, as of the date of the balance sheets and reported amounts of revenues and expenses for the periods presented.  Actual results could differ from those estimates. Material estimates that are particularly susceptible to significant change in the near term relate to the determination of the allowance for loan losses, other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) of securities, deferred income taxes and the valuation of intangible assets.

Reclassifications
Certain amounts in the Company’s 2011 consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2012 presentation.  Such reclassifications had no effect on net income.

Loans Receivable
Loans receivable are stated at current unpaid principal balances, net of the allowance for loan losses and deferred loan origination fees and costs.  Management has the ability and intent to hold its loans receivable for the foreseeable future or until maturity or pay-off.

A loan is impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable the Company will be unable to collect all contractual principal and interest payments due in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement. Factors considered by management in determining impairment include payment status, collateral value and the probability of collecting scheduled principal and interest payments when due. Impairment is measured on a loan by loan basis for residential and commercial mortgage loans and commercial business loans by either the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan's effective interest rate or, as a practical expedient, at the loan's observable market price or the fair value of the collateral if the loan is collateral dependent.  Large groups of smaller balance homogeneous loans are collectively evaluated for impairment.  Accordingly, the Company does not typically identify individual consumer loans for impairment disclosures, unless such loans are subject to a troubled debt restructuring agreement.

The Company periodically may agree to modify the contractual terms of loans.  When a loan is modified and concessions have been made to the original contractual terms, such as reductions of interest rates or deferral of interest or principal payments due to the borrower’s financial condition, the modification is considered a troubled debt restructuring (“TDR”).  All TDRs are initially classified as impaired.

Management considers all nonaccrual loans, with the exception of certain consumer loans, and TDRs to be impaired.  In most cases, loan payments less than 90 days past due are considered minor collection delays and the related loans are generally not considered impaired.

Allowance for Loan Losses
The allowance for loan losses, a material estimate which could change significantly in the near-term, is established through a provision for loan losses charged to earnings to account for losses that are inherent in the loan portfolio and estimated to occur, and is maintained at a level that management considers adequate to absorb losses in the loan portfolio.  Loan losses are charged against the allowance for loan losses when management believes that the uncollectibility of the principal loan balance is confirmed.  Subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance for loan losses when received.  In the determination of the allowance for loan losses, management may obtain independent appraisals for significant properties, if necessary.

Management's judgment in determining the adequacy of the allowance is inherently subjective as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available.  The allowance for loan losses is evaluated on a monthly basis by management and is based on the evaluation of the known and inherent risk characteristics and size and composition of the loan portfolio, the assessment of current economic and real estate market conditions, adverse situations that may affect the borrower’s ability to repay, estimated value of any underlying collateral, historical loan loss experience, the level of nonperforming loans, delinquencies, classified assets and loan charge-offs and evaluations of loans and other relevant factors.

The allowance for loan losses consists of the following key elements:

Specific allowance for identified impaired loans.  For loans that are identified as impaired, an allowance is established when the present value of expected cash flows (or observable market price of the loan or fair value of the collateral if the loan is collateral dependent) of the impaired loan is lower than the carrying value of that loan.

General valuation allowance.  The general component represents a valuation allowance on the remainder of the loan portfolio, after excluding impaired loans.  For this portion of the allowance, loans are segregated by category and assigned an allowance percentage based on historical loan loss experience adjusted for qualitative factors stratified by the following loan segments:  residential one- to four-family, multi-family and commercial real estate, construction, commercial business and consumer. Management uses a rolling average of historical losses based on the time frame appropriate to capture relevant loss data for each loan segment.  This historical loss factor is adjusted for the following qualitative factors: levels/trends in delinquencies, classified loans and nonaccrual loans; level of loan charge-offs; trends in volume, nature and terms of loans; existence and effect of/or changes in the level of credit concentrations; effects of changes in risk selection, underwriting standards and other changes in lending policies, procedures and practices; experience/ability and depth of lending management and staff, national and local economic trends and conditions and impact on value of underlying collateral for collateral dependent loans.

The qualitative factors are determined based on the following various risk characteristics for each loan segment. Risk characteristics relevant to each portfolio segment are as follows:

Residential – One- to Four-Family – The Bank primarily originates conventional loans with loan-to-value ratios less than 95% and generally originates loans with loan-to-value ratios in excess of 80% only when secured by first liens on owner-occupied one- to four-family residences.  Loans with loan-to-value ratios in excess of 80% generally require private mortgage insurance or additional collateral. All loans in this segment are collateralized by owner-occupied residential real estate and repayment is dependent on the credit quality of the individual borrower.  The overall health of the economy, including unemployment rates and housing prices, will have an effect on the credit quality of this segment.

Multi-family and Commercial – Loans in this segment are originated for the purpose of acquiring, developing, improving or refinancing multi-family and commercial real estate where the property is the primary collateral securing the loan, and the income generated from the property is the primary repayment source.  The underlying cash flows generated by the properties are adversely impacted by a downturn in the economy as evidenced by increased vacancy rates, which in turn, will have an effect on the credit quality in this segment.  Payments on loans secured by income-producing properties often depend on the successful operation and management of the properties.  Management continually monitors the underlying cash flows related to these loans.

Construction – This segment includes loans to individuals, and to a lesser extent builders, to finance the construction of residential dwellings.  The Bank also originates construction loans for commercial development projects.  Upon the completion of construction, the loan generally converts to a permanent mortgage loan.  Credit risk is affected by cost overruns, time to sell at an adequate price and market conditions.

Commercial Business – Loans in this segment are made to businesses and are generally secured by assets of the business.  Repayment is expected from the cash flows of the business.  A weakened economy and reduced viability of the industry in which the customer operates will have a negative impact on the credit quality in this segment. To a lesser extent, the Bank finances capital improvements for condominium

associations which are secured by the assigned rights to levy special assessments to condominium owners.

Consumer – Loans in this segment primarily include home equity lines of credit (representing both first and second liens) and indirect automobile loans and, to a lesser extent, loans secured by marketable securities, passbook or certificate accounts, motorcycles, automobiles and recreational vehicles, as well as unsecured loans.  Consumer loan collections depend on the borrower’s continuing financial stability, and therefore, are more likely to be adversely affected by job loss, divorce, illness or personal bankruptcy.
 
In computing the allowance for loan losses, we do not assign a general valuation allowance to the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) and United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) loans that we purchase as such loans are fully guaranteed.  These loans are included in commercial business loans.
 
The majority of the Company's loans are collateralized by real estate located in eastern Connecticut. To a lesser extent, certain commercial real estate loans are secured by collateral located outside of our primary market area. Accordingly, the collateral value of a substantial portion of the Company's loan portfolio and real estate acquired through foreclosure is susceptible to changes in market conditions.
 
Although management believes that it uses the best information available to establish the allowance for loan losses, future adjustments to the allowance for loan losses may be necessary and the Company’s results of operations could be adversely affected if circumstances differ substantially from the assumptions used in making the determinations.  Furthermore, while management believes it has established the allowance for loan losses in conformity with GAAP, our regulators, in reviewing the loan portfolio, may request us to increase our allowance for loan losses based on judgments different from ours.  In addition, because future events affecting borrowers and collateral cannot be predicted with certainty, the existing allowance for loan losses may not be adequate or increases may be necessary should the quality of any loans deteriorate as a result of the factors discussed above.  Any material increase in the allowance for loan losses would adversely affect the Company’s financial condition and results of operations.

Interest and Fees on Loans
Interest on loans is accrued and included in net interest income based on contractual rates applied to principal amounts outstanding.  Accrual of interest is discontinued when loan payments are 90 days or more past due, based on contractual terms, or when, in the judgment of management, collectibility of the loan or loan interest becomes uncertain.  Subsequent recognition of income occurs only to the extent payment is received subject to management's assessment of the collectibility of the remaining interest and principal.  A nonaccrual loan is restored to accrual status when it is no longer delinquent and collectibility of interest and principal is no longer in doubt and the borrower has made regular payments in accordance with the terms of the loan over a period of at least six months.  Interest collected on nonaccrual loans is recognized only to the extent cash payments are received, and may be recorded as a reduction to principal if the collectibility of the principal balance of the loan is unlikely.

Loan origination fees and direct loan origination costs are deferred, and the net amount is recognized as an adjustment of the related loan's yield utilizing the interest method over the contractual life of the loan.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements – In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") amended its standard related to fair value measurement and disclosure requirements in accordance with GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards.  The amendments (1) change the wording used to describe many of the requirements in GAAP for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurement, (2) clarify the intent of the application of existing fair value measurement requirements and (3) change the requirements for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value.  The amendments are not intended to change the application of existing

requirements for fair value measurement.  The amendments should be applied prospectively effective during the first interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011.  The adoption of these amendments did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Presentation of Comprehensive Income – In June 2011, the FASB amended its standard related to the presentation of comprehensive income.  Under this amendment, an entity will have the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income in a single continuous statement or in two separate but consecutive statements.  The Company adopted this amendment as of December 31, 2011 with the presentation of separate consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

Testing of Goodwill for Impairment – In September 2011, the FASB amended its standard related to how entities test goodwill for impairment.  Under this amendment, an entity is now permitted to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the two-step goodwill impairment test.  If after assessing the totality of events and circumstances, an entity determines it is not more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then performing the two-step impairment test is unnecessary.  Under this amendment, an entity is no longer permitted to carry forward its detailed calculation of a reporting unit’s fair value from a prior year.  The amendments in this update are effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011.  The Company adopted this amendment as of January 1, 2012 and it did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities In December 2011, the FASB amended its standard related to disclosure requirements for offsetting assets and liabilities. Under this amendment, an entity will be required to disclose both gross and net information about both instruments and transactions eligible for offset in the statement of financial position and instruments and transactions subject to an agreement similar to a master netting arrangement. This scope would include derivatives, sale and repurchase agreements and reverse sale and repurchase agreements, and securities borrowing and securities lending arrangements. The amendments in this update are effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods within those annual periods. An entity should provide the disclosures required by these amendments retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. The adoption of this amendment is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 2.  EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the net income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Unvested restricted shares are considered outstanding in the computation of basic earnings per share since the shares participate in dividends and the rights to the dividends are non-forfeitable.  Diluted earnings per share is computed in a manner similar to basic earnings per share except that the weighted average number of common shares outstanding is increased to include the incremental common shares (as computed using the treasury stock method) that would have been outstanding if all potentially dilutive common stock equivalents were issued during the period.  The Company’s common stock equivalents relate solely to stock options.  Treasury shares and unallocated common shares held by the Bank’s ESOP are not deemed outstanding for earnings per share calculations.
 
Anti-dilutive shares are common stock equivalents with weighted average exercise prices in excess of the weighted average market value for the periods presented, and are not considered in diluted earnings per share calculations.
The Company had anti-dilutive common shares outstanding of 131,016 and 237,412 for the three and six months

For debt securities with OTTI losses, the Company estimated the portion of loss attributable to credit using a discounted cash flow model in accordance with applicable guidance.  Significant inputs for the non-agency mortgage-backed securities included the estimated cash flows of the underlying collateral based on key assumptions, such as default rate, loss severity and prepayment rate.  Assumptions used can vary widely from loan to loan, and are influenced by such factors as loan interest rate, geographical location of the borrower, borrower characteristics and collateral type.  Significant inputs for the collateralized debt obligations included estimated cash flows and prospective deferrals, defaults and recoveries based on the underlying seniority status and subordination structure of the pooled trust preferred debt tranche at the time of measurement.  Prospective deferral, default and recovery estimates affecting projected cash flows were based on an analysis of the underlying financial condition of the individual issuers, with consideration of the account’s capital adequacy, credit quality, lending concentrations and other factors.  All cash flow estimates were based on the securities’ tranche structure and contractual rate and maturity terms.  The Company utilized the services of an independent third-party valuation firm to obtain information about the structure in order to determine how the underlying collateral cash flows will be distributed to each security issued from the structure.  The present value of the expected cash flows was compared to the Company’s holdings to determine the credit-related impairment loss, if any.

To the extent that continued changes in interest rates, credit movements and other factors that influence fair value of investments occur, the Company may be required to record additional impairment charges for OTTI in future periods.

At June 30, 2012, twenty-four debt securities with gross unrealized losses had aggregate depreciation of 8.8% of the Company’s amortized cost basis.  The majority of the unrealized losses related to the Company’s collateralized debt obligations and non-agency mortgage-backed securities. The Company recognized net impairment losses on securities of $36,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and recognized no net impairment losses on securities for the three months ended June 30, 2012 or the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.  The following summarizes, by security type, the basis for management’s determination during the preparation of the financial statements of whether the applicable investments within the Company’s securities portfolio were other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2012.

Debt Securities:
U.S. Government and Agency Obligations.  The unrealized losses on the Company’s U.S. Government and agency obligations related primarily to a widening of the rate spread to comparable treasury securities.  The contractual terms of these investments do not permit the issuer to settle the securities at a price less than the amortized cost basis of the investments.  Because the decline in market value is attributable to changes in interest rates and not credit quality, and because the Company does not intend to sell these securities and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the securities before their anticipated recovery, which may be maturity, the Company did not consider these securities to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2012.

Mortgage-backed Securities - Agency - Residential. The unrealized losses on the Company’s agency–residential mortgage-backed securities were caused by increases in the rate spread to comparable treasury securities. The Company does not expect these securities to settle at a price less than the amortized cost basis of the investments.  Because the Company does not intend to sell the investments and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the investments before the recovery of their amortized cost basis, which may be at maturity, the Company did not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at June 30, 2012.
 
Mortgage-backed Securities - Non-agency - Residential.  Despite significant improvement in the market, these securities continue to trade well below historic levels, particularly those backed by jumbo or hybrid loan collateral.  At June 30, 2012, management evaluated credit rating details for the tranche, as well as credit information on subordinate tranches, potential future credit losses and loss analyses.  Additionally, management

(1) Class definitions:  PT – Pass Through, AS – Accelerated, SSNR – Super Senior, SSUP – Senior Support and CSTR – Collateral Strip Interest.
(2) The Company utilized credit ratings provided by Moody’s, S&P and Fitch in its evaluation of issuers.
(3) The OTTI amounts provided in the table represent cumulative credit loss amounts through June 30, 2012.
(4) The credit support coverage ratio, which is the ratio that determines the multiple of credit support, is based on assumptions for the performance of loans within the delinquency pipeline.  The assumptions used are:  current collateral support/((60 day delinquencies x .60) + (90 day delinquencies x .70) + (foreclosures x 1.00) + (other real estate x 1.00)) x .40 for loss severity.

Mortgage-backed Securities - Non-agency - HELOC.  The unrealized loss on the Company’s non-agency - HELOC mortgage-backed security is related to one security whose market has been illiquid.  This security is collateralized by home equity lines of credit secured by first and second liens and insured by Financial Security Assurance.  At June 30, 2012, management evaluated credit rating details, collateral support and loss analyses.  All of the unrealized losses on this security relate to factors other than credit.  Because the Company does not intend to sell this security and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell this security before the recovery of its amortized cost basis, which may be at maturity, the Company did not record an impairment loss at June 30, 2012.

Corporate Debt Securities. Substantially all of the corporate debt securities are rated investment-grade, including those in an unrealized loss position. Various factors were considered in assessing whether the Company expects to recover the amortized cost of corporate debt securities including, but not limited to, the strength of issuer credit ratings, the financial condition of guarantors and the length of time and the extent to which a security's fair value has been less than its amortized cost. Of the $199,000 in gross unrealized losses related to corporate debt securities, only $84,000 related to securities that have been in an unrealized loss position for 12 months or more. Based on management's assessment, the Company expects to recover the entire amortized cost basis of all corporate debt securities that were in an unrealized loss position as of June 30, 2012.

Collateralized Debt Obligations.  The unrealized losses on the Company’s collateralized debt obligations related to investments in pooled trust preferred securities (“PTPS”).  The PTPS market has stabilized at depressed market values as a result of market saturation. Transactions for PTPS have been limited and have occurred primarily as a result of distressed or forced liquidation sales.  The securities were widely held by hedge funds and European banks and used to offset interest rate exposure tied to LIBOR.  As the positions have unwound, an excess supply of these securities have saturated the market.

Management evaluated current credit ratings, credit support and stress testing for future defaults related to the Company’s PTPS.  Management also reviewed analytics provided by the trustee and independent OTTI reviews and associated cash flow analyses performed by an independent third party.  The unrealized losses on the Company’s PTPS investments were caused by a lack of liquidity, credit downgrades and decreasing credit support.  The

increased number of bank and insurance company failures has decreased the level of credit support for these investments.  A number of lower tranche income issues have foregone payments or have received payment in kind through increased principal allocations.  However, the number of deferring securities has been decreasing and a number of reinstatements have occurred recently.  Based on the existing credit profile of the remainder of the Company's PTPS investments, management does not believe that these investments will suffer from any further credit-related losses. Because the Company does not intend to sell the investments and it is not more likely than not that the Company will be required to sell the investments before recovery of their amortized cost basis, which may be at maturity, the Company did not record additional impairment losses at June 30, 2012.
