PITTSBURGH, July 29, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank) announced today unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2021. FHLBank recorded net income of $11.7 million, and the Board of Directors declared dividends of 5.25% annualized on activity stock and 1.25% annualized on membership stock. Dividends are payable to stockholders on July 30, 2021.
"Though economic conditions nationwide have continued to improve in the second quarter, we anticipate limited change to members' need for advances this year," said Winthrop Watson, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Members continue to actively use our Mortgage Partnership Finance® Program and letters of credit. We stand ready with on-demand access to liquidity to meet member needs as market conditions warrant."
Key financial reporting amounts for the second quarter of 2021 include:
Net income of $11.7 million
Net interest income of $38.9 million
Advances at $15.0 billion
Mortgage loans held for portfolio, net at $4.8 billion
Letters of credit at $18.6 billion
Retained earnings at $1.4 billion
FHLBank’s net income totaled $11.7 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $60.3 million for the second quarter of 2020. Second quarter 2021 performance allowed FHLBank to set aside $1.4 million for affordable housing programs.
The $48.6 million decrease in net income was driven primarily by the following:
Net interest income was $38.9 million for the second quarter of 2021, a decline of $63.9 million from $102.8 million during the same period in 2020.
Interest income was $98.9 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $284.3 million for the second quarter of 2020. This decrease was largely the result of lower average interest-earning asset balances as well as lower yields, driven by lower short-term interest rates.
Interest expense was $60.0 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $181.5 million in the same prior-year period. This decrease was primarily the result of lower average consolidated obligations balances as well as lower rates paid, driven by lower short-term interest rates.
Other expenses decreased $11.4 million to $23.1 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared with the same prior-year period. There were two primary drivers of the decrease. There were lower compensation and benefits expenses in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020. In addition, FHLBank made a voluntary donation to its Home4Good initiative in the second quarter of 2020 but made no such donation in the second quarter of 2021.
FHLBank’s net income totaled $49.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $96.2 million for the same prior-year period. The $46.4 million decrease was driven primarily by the following:
Net interest income was $96.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, a decline of $101.6 million from $198.5 million in the same prior-year period.
Interest income was $223.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared with $750.2 million for the same prior-year period. This decrease was the result of lower average interest-earning asset balances as well as lower yields, driven by lower short-term interest rates.
Interest expense was $126.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared with $551.7 million in the same prior-year period. This decrease was primarily the result of lower average consolidated obligations balances as well as lower rates paid, driven by lower short-term interest rates.
Interest income also included net prepayment fees on advances of $8.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $3.3 million for the same prior-year period.
Other non-interest income was $6.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared with a loss of $31.2 million in the same prior-year period. This $37.6 million increase was due primarily to higher net gains on derivatives and hedging activities, partially offset by higher net losses on investment securities in 2021. The valuation changes of the financial instruments in these portfolios are driven by changes in related interest rates.
Balance Sheet Highlights
At June 30, 2021, total assets were $41.7 billion, compared with $47.7 billion at Dec. 31, 2020. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in advances, which totaled $15.0 billion at June 30, 2021, compared to $25.0 billion at year-end 2020.
Total capital at June 30, 2021, was $2.7 billion, compared to $3.0 billion at Dec. 31, 2020. Retained earnings at June 30, 2021, was $1.4 billion, relatively unchanged from year-end 2020. Retained earnings at June 30, 2021, and Dec. 31, 2020, included $457.4 million of restricted retained earnings. At June 30, 2021, FHLBank had total regulatory capital of $2.7 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 5.25% and a dividend on subclass B1 (membership) stock equal to an annual yield of 1.25%. These dividends will be calculated on stockholders’ average balances during the period April 1, 2021, to June 30, 2021, and credited to stockholders’ accounts on July 30, 2021.
