FHLBank Pittsburgh Announces Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results | Business

PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct 27, 2022–

The Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank) announced today unaudited financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2022. FHLBank recorded net income of $74.4 million for the third quarter, and the Board of Directors declared dividends of 7.25% annualized on activity stock and 3.25% annualized on membership stock. Dividends are payable to stockholders on Oct. 28, 2022.

“As we celebrate the FHLBank System’s 90th anniversary, our cooperative remains strong,” said Winthrop Watson, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In response to member need, advance balances have continued to increase.”

Highlights for third quarter of 2022 include:

  • Net income of $74.4 million
  • Net interest income of $105.9 million
  • Advances at $58.4 billion
  • Mortgage loans held for portfolio, net at $4.6 billion
  • Letters of credit at $23.3 billion
  • Retained earnings at $1.5 billion

Operating Results

FHLBank’s net income totaled $74.4 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $22.6 million for the third quarter of 2021. Third quarter 2022 performance allowed FHLBank to set aside $8.3 million for affordable housing programs. The $51.8 million increase in net income was driven primarily by the following:

  • Net interest income was $105.9 million for the third quarter of 2022, an increase of $62.2 million from $43.7 million during the same prior-year period.
    • Interest income was $447.6 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $98.8 million in the same prior-year period. This increase was the result of higher average advance balances and higher yields driven by higher short-term interest rates.
    • Interest expense was $341.7 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $55.2 million in the same prior-year period. This increase was the result of higher average consolidated obligations and higher short-term interest rates.
  • Other noninterest income was $4.8 million for the third quarter of 2022 compared to $3.6 million in the same prior-year period. This $1.2 million increase was due primarily to valuation changes in FHLBank’s derivative and trading security portfolios as a result of market volatility.
  • Other expense was $24.8 million for the third quarter of 2022 compared to $22.9 million in the same period in prior-year, an increase of $1.9 million. This increase was the result of higher compensation and benefits, including higher incentive compensation driven by FHLBank performance.

FHLBank’s net income totaled $130.6 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2022, compared to $72.4 million for the same prior-year period. The $58.2 million increase was driven primarily by the following:

  • Net interest income was $217.0 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2022, an increase of $76.5 million from $140.5 million in the same prior-year period.
    • Interest income was $724.6 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2022, compared with $322.3 million for the same prior-year period. This increase was the result of higher average advance balances, and higher yields driven by higher short-term interest rates.
    • Interest expense was $507.6 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2022, compared with $181.8 million in the same prior-year period. This increase was the result of higher average consolidated obligations and higher short-term interest rates.
  • Interest income also included net prepayment fees on advances of $1.9 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2022, compared to $13.1 million for the same prior-year period.
  • Other non-interest income was $5.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared with $10.0 million for the same prior-year period. This $4.7 million decrease reflected losses in 2022 on investments that secure certain deferred compensation arrangements, along with higher net losses on derivatives and trading securities. Movements in interest rates in 2022 have led to volatility in the mark to market portfolio.
  • Other expense was $71.7 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2022, compared with $72.0 million for the same prior-year period, a decrease of $0.3 million. Although other expense remains relatively unchanged, there were offsetting impacts. The decrease in operating expense was driven by market value changes of deferred compensation agreements, lower Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) assessments, and smaller discretionary pension contributions, which were offset by higher compensation and benefit expenses and technology-related costs.

Balance Sheet Highlights

At Sept. 30, 2022, total assets were $86.3 billion, compared with $37.7 billion at Dec. 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to an increase in advances, which totaled $58.4 billion at Sept. 30, 2022, compared to $14.1 billion at year-end 2021. Although advance levels increased driven by member demand, it is not uncommon for the FHLBank to experience variances in the overall advance portfolio driven primarily by changes in member needs. Market liquidity, as well as recent Federal Reserve actions continue to impact members’ need for advances.

Total capital at Sept. 30, 2022, was $4.5 billion, compared to $2.7 billion at Dec. 31, 2021. Retained earnings at Sept. 30, 2022, was $1.5 billion, relatively unchanged from year-end 2021. Retained earnings at Sept. 30, 2022, included $479.8 million of restricted retained earnings, an increase of $22.4 million from year-end 2021. At Sept. 30, 2022, FHLBank had total regulatory capital of $4.6 billion and remained in compliance with all regulatory capital requirements.

The Board of Directors declared a dividend on subclass B2 (activity) stock equal to an annual yield of 7.25% and a dividend on subclass B1 (membership) stock equal to an annual yield of 3.25%. These dividends will be calculated on stockholders’ average balances during the period July 1, 2022, to Sept. 30, 2022, and credited to stockholders’ accounts on Oct. 28, 2022.

The dividend rates demonstrate that FHLBank continues to return value to its member shareholders. Looking forward, market and business conditions can impact the FHLBank’s overall performance, as well as the levels of future dividends.

Detailed financial information regarding third quarter 2022 results will be available in FHLBank’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which FHLBank anticipates filing no later than Nov. 10, 2022.
