TECHE HOLDING COMPANY
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1 - PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION

The consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011 and for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, include the accounts of Teche Holding Company (the “Company”) and its subsidiary, Teche Federal Bank (the “Bank”). The Company’s business is conducted principally through the Bank. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

NOTE 2 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with instructions for Form 10-Q and, therefore, do not include all information necessary for a complete presentation of consolidated financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. However, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements, have been included. The results of operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire fiscal year or any other period. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2011.  Certain items related to the financial statements dated September 30, 2011 were reclassified to conform to the March 31, 2012 financial statements.  The reclassification had no impact on net income or shareholder’s equity.

NOTE 3 - INCOME PER SHARE

Basic and diluted net income per share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each period. Diluted net income per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if stock options were exercised, resulting in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the net income of the Company.

Following is a summary of the information used in the computation of basic and diluted income per common share for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 (in thousands).

For the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, net income for determining diluted earnings per share was equivalent to net income. Options to purchase shares that have been excluded from the determination of diluted earnings per share because they are antidilutive (the exercise price is higher than the current market price) amounted to approximately 47,200 and 104,000 for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

NOTE 4 - NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
ASU –Accounting Standards Update (2011-04), Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs.  ASU 2011-04, amends Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures, to converge the fair value measurement guidance in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and International Financial Reporting Standards.  ASU 2011-04 clarified the application of existing fair value measurement requirements, changed certain principles in Topic 820 and requires additional fair value disclosures. ASU 2011-04 was effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact to the Company’s financial statements and the updated disclosures are included in this Form 10-Q.

ASU-Accounting Standards Update (2011-05), Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income. The amendments in this Update allow an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This Update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. The amendments in this Update do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. The amendments in this Update should be applied retrospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. For nonpublic entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2012, and interim and annual periods thereafter.  The amendments do not require any transition disclosures.  The adoption of this standard did not require additional disclosure.

ASU –Accounting Standards Update (2011-12),  Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassification of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05.  This amendment will effectively defer only those changes that related to the presentation of reclassification adjustments out of accumulated other comprehensive income and will be temporary to allow the Board time to re-deliberate the presentation requirements for reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income for annual and interim financial statements for public, private, and non-profit entities.

NOTE 5 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
 
The Company utilizes fair value measurements to record fair value adjustments to certain assets and liabilities and to determine fair value disclosures. Available for sale securities are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. Additionally, from time to time, the Company may be required to record at fair value other assets on a nonrecurring basis, such as securities held-to-maturity, loans held for sale, loans held for investment and certain other assets. These nonrecurring fair value adjustments typically involve application of lower of cost or market accounting, other than temporary impairment accounting or impairments of individual assets.
 
This is a three-tier fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:
 
Level 1                      - Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
 
Level 2                      - Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
 
Level 3                      - Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
 
The Company evaluates fair value measurement inputs on an ongoing basis in order to determine if there is a change of sufficient significance to warrant a transfer between levels.  For example, changes in market activity or the addition of new unobservable inputs could, in the Company’s judgment, cause a transfer to either a higher or lower level.  For the three and six months ended March 31, 2012, there were no transfers between levels.
 
Following is a description of valuation methodologies used for assets recorded at fair value.
 
Investment Securities
 
Securities available for sale are valued at quoted market prices where available. If quoted market prices are not available, fair values are based on quoted market prices of comparable securities. These are inputs used by a third-party pricing service used by the Company.  Level 1 securities include those traded on an active exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange, U.S. Treasury securities that are traded by dealers or brokers in active over-the-counter markets and money market funds. Level 2 securities include mortgage-backed securities issued by government sponsored entities. Securities classified as Level 3 include asset-backed securities in less liquid markets.  Securities held to maturity are valued using discounted cash flow models that use assumptions about prepayment speeds, coupon default rates, discount rates and timing and other assumptions that may affect the amounts of cash flows.  The Company periodically updates its understanding of the inputs used and compares valuations to an additional third party source.
 
Loans
 
The Company does not record loans at fair value on a recurring basis. However, from time to time, a loan is considered impaired and an allowance for loan losses is established. Loans for which it is probable that payment of interest and principal will not be made in accordance with the contractual terms of the loan agreement are considered impaired. Once a loan is identified as individually impaired, management measures impairment in accordance with ASC 310, “Accounting by Creditors for Impairment of a Loan.” The fair value of impaired loans is estimated using one of several methods, including collateral value if the impaired loan is collateral-dependent, which is typically derived from appraisals that take into consideration prices in observed transactions involving similar assets and similar locations.  Each

appraisal is updated on an annual basis, either through a new appraisal or through an internal review process.  Other methods used to determine fair value are enterprise value, liquidation value and discounted cash flows.  The fair value of impaired loans that are not collateral dependent would require a measure using a discounted cash flow analysis considered to be a Level 3 input.  Fair value is re-assessed at least quarterly, or more frequently when circumstances occur that indicate a change in fair value.  Those impaired loans not requiring an allowance represent loans for which the fair value of the expected repayments or collateral exceed the recorded investments in such loans. At March 31, 2012, substantially all of the impaired loans were evaluated based on the fair value of the collateral less estimated costs to sell.  Impaired loans where an allowance is established based on the fair value of collateral require classification in the fair value hierarchy.  When the fair value of the collateral is based on an observable market price or a current appraised value, the Company records the impaired loan as nonrecurring Level 2. When an appraised value is not available or management determines the fair value of the collateral is further impaired below the appraised value and there is no observable market price, the Company records the impaired loan as nonrecurring Level 3.
 
Fair value is also used on a nonrecurring basis for nonfinancial assets and liabilities such as foreclosed assets, and other real estate owned measured at fair value for purposes of assessing impairment.  A description of the valuation methodologies used for nonfinancial assets measured at fair value, as well as the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy, is set forth below.
 
Other Real Estate Owned
 
Other Real Estate Owned (“OREO”), consisting of properties obtained through foreclosure or in satisfaction of loans, is reported at the lower of cost or fair value, determined on the basis of current appraisal, comparable sales, and other estimates of value obtained principally from independent sources, adjusted for estimated selling costs (Level 3).   The fair value of OREO is based on a property’s appraised value adjusted at management’s discretion to reflect a further decline in the fair value of properties since the time the appraisal analysis was performed.  The Company has experienced that appraisals quickly become outdated due to the volatile real-estate environment.  The inputs used to determine the fair value of OREO fall within Level 3.  At the time of foreclosure, any excess of the loan balance over the fair value of the real estate held as collateral is treated as a charge against the allowance for loan losses. Gains or losses on sale and generally any subsequent adjustments to the value are recorded as a component of OREO expense.

The fair value of a financial instrument is the current amount that would be exchanged between willing parties, other than in a forced liquidation.  Fair value is best determined based upon quoted market prices.  However, in many instances, there are no quoted market prices for the Company’s various financial instruments.  In cases where quoted market prices are not available, fair values are based on estimates using present value or other valuation techniques.  Those techniques are significantly affected by the assumptions used, including the discount rate and estimates of future cash flows.  Accordingly, the fair value estimates may not be realized in an immediate settlement of the instrument.  ASC 825 excludes certain financial instruments and all non-financial instruments from its disclosure requirements.  Accordingly, the aggregate fair value amounts presented may not necessarily represent the underlying fair value of the Company.

The following methods and assumptions were used by the Company in estimating fair value disclosures for financial instruments:

Cash - For those short-term instruments, the carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Investment Securities – See the discussion in the beginning of Note 5 on the valuation of the fair value of investment securities.  Investment securities’ fair value equals quoted market price, if available. If a quoted market price is not available, fair value is estimated using quoted market prices for similar securities.

Loans - See the discussion in the beginning of Note 5 on the valuation of fair value of impaired loans.  The fair value of loans is estimated by discounting the future cash flows using the current rates at which similar loans would be made to borrowers for the same remaining maturities.  No adjustment has been made for illiquidity in the market for loans as there is no active market for many of the Company’s loans on which to reasonably base this estimate.

Federal Home Loan Bank Stock - Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) stock is recorded at cost and is periodically reviewed for impairment. No ready market exists for the FHLB stock.  It has no quoted market value and is carried at cost.  Cost approximates fair market value based upon the redemption requirements of the FHLB, and this investment is not considered impaired at March 31, 2012.  The FHLB of Dallas is still redeeming stock.

Bank Owned Life Insurance- The carrying amounts of bank owned life insurance contracts approximate fair value.

Accrued Interest - The carrying amounts of accrued interest receivable and payable approximate fair value.

Deposits - The fair value of demand deposits, savings accounts, and certain money market deposits is the amount payable on demand at the reporting date. The fair value of fixed-maturities certificates of deposit is estimated using the rates currently offered for deposits of similar remaining maturities.

Advances from Federal Home Loan Bank - The fair value of advances is estimated using rates currently available for advances of similar remaining maturities.

Commitments - The fair value of commitments to extend credit was not significant.

The following table presents additional quantitative information about assets measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis and for which the Company has utilized Level 3 inputs to determine fair value:

The Bank had a total of 24 securities classified as held-to-maturity in an unrealized loss position; with total gross unrealized losses of $87,000 as of March 31, 2012.

Management of the Company has asserted that they have no intent to sell impaired securities and it is more likely than not that impaired securities will not be required to be sold. These unrealized losses generally result from changes in market interest rates and as a result of the disruption in the existing mortgage securities market due to illiquidity in certain sectors of that market.  The unrealized losses associated with investment securities issued by government sponsored enterprises (GSEs) are caused by changes in interest rates and are not considered credit related since the contractual cash flows of these investments are guaranteed by these agencies.  GSEs have access to additional capital and liquidity resources from the U.S. Treasury, which indicates that they will be able to honor their guarantees related to the contractual cash flows of the MBS that they have issued.  In the case of securities issued by the Government National Mortgage Association, the securities are fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government.  The private label mortgage backed securities and CMOs are not backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.  For each private label security, the duration of the impairment, credit support and cash flows were assessed to determine whether the security was temporarily

or other than temporarily impaired.  Management evaluates the actual mortgage delinquencies, foreclosures, and real estate owned for each security, as well as future expected losses in the underlying mortgage collateral to determine if there is a high probability for expected losses and contractual shortfalls of interest or principal, which could warrant further recognition of impairment.  Based upon such evaluation, it was determined that some securities have been other-than-temporarily impaired and a corresponding charge to earnings for credit related impairment was recognized with the non-credit related impairment recognized in other comprehensive income.  There was no realized credit losses in the private label securities portfolio for the six months ended March 31, 2012.  In the performance of cash flow analysis on private label securities, management determined that none of the impaired securities had non-credit losses that were required to be recognized in other comprehensive income for the six months ended March 31, 2012.  All private label securities that have not been written down have been determined to have sufficient credit support and cash flows to recover the amortized cost of the related securities.

The amortized cost and estimated fair value of available-for-sale securities by contractual maturity at March 31, 2012, are shown below.  Expected maturities may differ from contractual maturities because issuers may have the right to call or prepay obligations with or without call or prepayment penalties.

Residential real estate loans increased $33.6 million mainly due to originations of 15 year term conforming one-to-four family mortgage loans.  Commercial real estate loans increased $7.9 million mainly due to three new large commercial non-residential loans in the aggregate amount of $7.5 million.  At March 31, 2012 approximately $283.8 million of loans receivable were pledged as collateral securing advances from the FHLB.

At March 31, 2012 the Company was in an  asset sensitive position.  Generally, an asset sensitive position will result in enhanced earnings in a rising interest rate environment and declining earnings in a falling interest rate environment because larger volumes of assets than liabilities will reprice.  Conversely, a liability sensitive position will be detrimental to earnings in a rising interest rate environment and will enhance earnings in a falling interest rate environment. In the current operating environment, the Company is biased toward rising market interest rates and the timing of such increases, if any, is unknown. With the increase in the Company’s portfolio of conforming one-to-four family fixed interest rate loans at historically low market interest rates, the future sale of a portion of this portfolio could be a possibility and in keeping with one of the methods used by the Company to manage interest rate risk in the past.

The amount of nonaccrual loans at March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011 was approximately $11.2 million and $10.1 million, respectively.  The Company had total impaired loans of approximately $7.6 million and $8.7 million at March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.  Specific reserves allocated to impaired loans totaled approximately $204 thousand and $548 thousand as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.  Impaired loans totaling approximately $6.8 million and $2.6 million had no specific reserves allocated as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.

Allowance for Loan Losses and Recorded Investment in Loans as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011 and for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011.

The allowance for loan losses is a reserve established through a provision for loan losses charged to expense, which represents management’s best estimate of probable losses that have been incurred within the existing portfolio of loans.  The allowance is the amount, in the judgment of management, necessary to reserve for estimated loan losses and risks inherent in the loan portfolio.  The methodology is based on the Bank’s historical loss experience by type of credit and internal risk grade, specific homogeneous risk pools and specific loss allocations, with adjustments for current events and conditions.  The Company’s process for determining the appropriate level of the allowance for loan losses is designed to account for credit deterioration as it occurs.  The provision for loan losses reflects loan quality trends, potential problem loans, and criticized loans and net charge-offs, among other factors.  The provision for loan losses also reflects the totality of actions taken on all loans for a particular period.  In other words, the amount of the provision reflects not only the necessary increases in the allowance for loan losses related to newly identified criticized loans, but it also reflects actions taken related to other loans including, among other things, any necessary increases or decreases in required allowances for specific loans or loan class.
