PART I
Item 1.     Description of Business
General
Southern Missouri Bancorp, Inc. ("Company"), which changed its state of incorporation to Missouri on April 1, 1999, was originally incorporated in Delaware on December 30, 1993 for the purpose of becoming the holding company for Southern Missouri Savings Bank upon completion of Southern Missouri Savings Bank's conversion from a state chartered mutual savings and loan association to a state chartered stock savings bank. As part of the conversion in April 1994, the Company sold 1,803,201 shares of its common stock to the public. The Company's Common Stock is quoted on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol "SMBC".
Southern Missouri Savings Bank was originally chartered as a mutual Missouri savings and loan association in 1887. On June 20, 1995, it converted to a federally chartered stock savings bank and took the name Southern Missouri Savings Bank, FSB. On February 17, 1998, Southern Missouri Savings Bank converted from a federally chartered stock savings bank to a Missouri chartered stock savings bank and changed its name to Southern Missouri Bank & Trust Co. On June 4, 2004, Southern Missouri Bank & Trust Co. converted from a Missouri chartered stock savings bank to a Missouri state chartered trust company with banking powers ("Charter Conversion"). On June 1, 2009, the institution changed its name to Southern Bank ("Bank").
The primary regulator of the Bank is the Missouri Division of Finance. The Bank is a member of the Federal Reserve, and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System ("Federal Reserve Board" or "FRB") is the Bank's primary federal regulator. The Bank's deposits continue to be insured up to applicable limits by the Deposit Insurance Fund ("DIF") of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"). With the Bank's conversion to a trust company with banking powers, the Company became a bank holding company regulated by the FRB.
The principal business of the Bank consists primarily of attracting retail deposits from the general public and using such deposits along with wholesale funding from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines ("FHLB"), and to a lesser extent, brokered deposits, to invest in one- to four-family residential mortgage loans, mortgage loans secured by commercial real estate, commercial non-mortgage business loans, and consumer loans. These funds are also used to purchase mortgage-backed and related securities ("MBS"), U.S. Government Agency obligations, municipal bonds, and other permissible investments.
At June 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $1.7 billion, total deposits of $1.5 billion and stockholders' equity of $173.1 million. The Company has not engaged in any significant activity other than holding the stock of the Bank. Accordingly, the information set forth in this report, including financial statements and related data, relates primarily to the Bank. The Company's revenues are derived principally from interest earned on loans, debt securities, MBS, CMOs and, to a lesser extent, banking service charges, bank card interchange fees, gains on sales of loans, loan late charges, increases in the cash surrender value of bank owned life insurance, and other fee income.
Acquisitions
On June 16, 2017, the Company completed its acquisition of Tammcorp, Inc. (Tammcorp) and its subsidiary, Capaha Bank (Capaha), Tamms, Illinois, in a stock and cash transaction. Capaha was merged into the Company's bank subsidiary, Southern Bank, at acquisition. At closing, Tammcorp held total assets of $187 million, loans, net, of $153 million, and deposits of $167 million. The Company acquired Capaha primarily for the purpose of expanding its commercial banking activities to markets where it believes the Company's business model will perform well, and for the long-term value of its core deposit franchise. A Tammcorp note payable of $3.7 million was contractually required to be repaid in conjunction with the acquisition. The goodwill of $4.1 million arising from the acquisition consists largely of synergies and economies of scale expected from combining the operations of the Company and Capaha. Goodwill from this transaction was assigned to the acquisition of the bank holding company, and is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes.
On August 5, 2014, the Company completed its acquisition of Peoples Service Company (PSC) and its subsidiaries, Peoples Banking Company (PBC) and Peoples Bank of the Ozarks (Peoples), Nixa, Missouri, in a stock and cash transaction (the "Peoples Acquisition"). Peoples was merged into the Company's bank subsidiary,
 
2

 
 
Southern Bank, in early December, 2014, in connection with the conversion of Peoples' data system. At closing, PSC held total assets of $267 million, loans, net, of $193 million, and deposits of $221 million. The Company acquired Peoples primarily for the purpose of expanding its commercial banking activities to markets where it believes the Company's business model will perform well, and for the long-term value of its core deposit franchise. Notes payable of $2.9 million were contractually required to be repaid on the date of acquisition. The goodwill of $3.0 million arising from the acquisition consists largely of synergies and economies of scale expected from combining the operations of the Company and Peoples. Goodwill from this transaction was assigned to the acquisition of the bank holding company, and is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes.
The Company completed its acquisition of Ozarks Legacy Community Financial, Inc. (Ozarks Legacy), and its subsidiary, Bank of Thayer, headquartered in Thayer, Missouri, in October 2013. At closing, Ozarks Legacy had total assets of approximately $81 million, loans, net, of $38 million, and deposits of $68 million. The Company completed its acquisition of Citizens State Bankshares of Bald Knob, Inc. (Citizens), and its subsidiary, Citizens State Bank, headquartered in Bald Knob, Arkansas, in February 2014. At closing, Citizens had total assets of approximately $72 million, loans, net, of $12 million, and deposits of $64 million. (The Ozarks Legacy and Citizens acquisitions are referred to as the "Fiscal 2014 Acquisitions" collectively.)
On December 17, 2010, the Bank entered into a Purchase and Assumption Agreement with the FDIC, as receiver, to acquire certain assets and assume certain liabilities of the former First Southern Bank, with headquarters in Batesville, Arkansas, and one branch location in Searcy, Arkansas (the "Fiscal 2011 Acquisition"). As a result of the transaction, the Company acquired loans recorded at a fair value of $115 million and deposits recorded at a fair value of $131 million, at December 17, 2010.
Capital Raising Transactions
On June 20, 2017, the Company completed an at-the-market common stock issuance. A total of 794,762 shares of the Company's common stock were sold at a weighted-average price of approximately $31.46 per share, representing gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $25.0 million. The proceeds from the transaction are expected to be used for general corporate purposes, which may include working capital to support organic growth at Southern Bank, and to support possible acquisitions to the extent available.
On November 22, 2011, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of 1,150,000 shares of common stock at a price to the public of $19.00 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $21.9 million. The proceeds from the offering have been used for general corporate purposes, including the funding of loan growth and the purchase of securities.
On July 21, 2011, as part of the Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF) of the United States Department of the Treasury (Treasury), the Company entered into a Small Business Lending Fund-Securities Purchase Agreement (Purchase Agreement) with the Secretary of the Treasury, pursuant to which the Company (i) sold 20,000 shares of the Company's Senior Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A (SBLF Preferred Stock) to the Secretary of the Treasury for a purchase price of $20,000,000. The SBLF Preferred Stock was issued pursuant to the SBLF program, a $30 billion fund established under the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 that was created to encourage lending to small business by providing capital to qualified community banks with assets of less than $10 billion.
The SBLF Preferred Stock qualified as Tier 1 capital. The SBLF Preferred Stock was entitled to receive non-cumulative dividends, payable quarterly, on each January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1, beginning October 1, 2011. The dividend rate, as a percentage of the liquidation amount, fluctuated on a quarterly basis during the first 10 quarters during which the SBLF Preferred Stock was outstanding, based upon changes in the Bank's level of Qualified Small Business Lending (QBSL), as defined in the Purchase Agreement. Based upon the increase in the Bank's level of QBSL over the baseline level calculated under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the dividend rate for the initial dividend period was set at 2.8155%. For the second through ninth calendar quarters, the dividend rate was adjusted to between one percent (1%) and five percent (5%) per annum, to reflect the amount of change in the Bank's level of QBSL. For the tenth calendar quarter through four and one half years after issuance, the dividend rate was fixed at between one percent (1%) and seven percent (7%) based upon the increase in QBSL as compared to the baseline. After four and one half years from issuance, the dividend rate increased to 9% (including a quarterly lending incentive fee of 0.5%).
As required by the Purchase Agreement, $9,635,000 of the proceeds from the sale of the SBLF Preferred Stock was used to redeem the 9,550 shares of the Company's Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock,
 
3

 
 
Series A issued in 2008 to the Treasury in the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), plus the accrued dividends owed on those preferred shares. As part of the 2008 TARP transaction, the Company had issued a ten-year warrant to Treasury to purchase 228,652 shares (split-adjusted) of the Company's common stock at an exercise price (split-adjusted) of $6.27 per share. The Company repurchased the warrant on May 29, 2015, for $2.7 million. Immediately prior to the repurchase, the warrant had been exercisable for the purchase of 231,891 shares (split-adjusted) at an exercise price of $6.18 per share.
The Company noted in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed October 16, 2015, that it redeemed all 20,000 shares of the Company's SBLF Preferred Stock. The shares of SBLF Preferred Stock were redeemed at their liquidation amount of $1,000 per share plus accrued but unpaid dividends to the redemption date.
Recent Events
On August 17, 2017, the Company announced the signing of an agreement and plan of merger whereby Southern Missouri Bancshares, Inc. ("Bancshares"), and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Southern Missouri Bank of Marshfield, will be acquired by the Company in a stock and cash transaction valued at approximately $15.1 million, (representing 140% of Bancshares' anticipated capital, as adjusted, at closing). At June 30, 2017, Bancshares held consolidated assets of approximately $92 million, loans, net, of $69 million, and deposits of $74 million. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of calendar year 2018, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including regulatory and shareholder approvals. The acquired financial institution is expected to be merged with and into Southern Bank simultaneously with the acquisition of Bancshares in the first quarter of calendar year 2018. Through June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $25,000 of third-party acquisition-related costs. The expenses are included in noninterest expense in the Company's consolidated statement of income for the year ended June 30, 2017.

Market Area
The Bank provides its customers with a full array of community banking services and conducts its business from its headquarters in Poplar Bluff, as well as 38 full service branch offices and three limited service branch offices located in Poplar Bluff (4), Van Buren, Dexter, Kennett, Doniphan, Sikeston, Qulin, Matthews, Springfield (3), Thayer (2), West Plains, Alton, Clever, Forsyth, Fremont Hills, Kimberling City, Ozark, Nixa (2), Rogersville, Cape Girardeau (2), and Jackson, Missouri; Jonesboro (2), Paragould, Brookland, Batesville, Searcy, Bald Knob (2) and Bradford, Arkansas; and Anna, Cairo, and Tamms, Illinois.
For purposes of management and oversight of its operations, the Bank has organized its facilities into three regional markets. The Bank's east region includes 17 of its facilities, which are situated in or directly adjacent to Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter, New Madrid, Ripley, Scott, and Stoddard counties in Missouri, and Alexander and Union counties in Illinois. These counties have a total population of approximately 252,000, and included within this market area is the Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), which has a population of approximately 98,000. The Bank's south region includes 14 of its facilities, which are situated in Dunklin, Howell, and Oregon counties in Missouri, and Craighead, Greene, Independence, and White counties in Arkansas. These counties have a total population of approximately 348,000, and included within this market area is the Jonesboro, Arkansas, MSA, which has a population of approximately 128,000. The Bank's west region includes 11 of its facilities, which are situated in Christian, Greene, Stone, Taney, and Webster counties in Missouri. These counties have a total population of approximately 497,000, and included within this market area is the Springfield, Missouri, MSA, which has a population of approximately 456,000. Each of these markets also serves a few communities just outside these county borders which do not have a notable impact on the demographics of the market area.
The Bank's east and south regions are generally rural in nature with economies supported by manufacturing activity, agriculture (livestock, dairy, poultry, rice, timber, soybeans, wheat, melons, corn, and cotton), healthcare, and education. Large employers include hospitals, manufacturers, school districts, and colleges. In the west region, the Bank's operations are generally more concentrated in the Springfield, Missouri, MSA, and major employers include healthcare providers, educational institutions, federal, local, and state government, retailers, transportation and distribution firms, and leisure, entertainment, and hospitality interests. For purposes of the Bank's lending policy, the Bank's primary lending area is considered to be the counties where the Bank has a branch facility, and any contiguous county.

Competition
The Bank faces strong competition in attracting deposits (its primary source of lendable funds) and originating loans. At June 30, 2017, the Bank was one of 27 bank or saving association groups located in its east region competing for approximately $5.2 billion in deposits at FDIC-insured institutions, one of 35 bank or saving association groups located in its south region (eight of these institutions overlap with the Bank's east region) competing for $7.0 billion in deposits, and one of 40 bank or savings association groups located in its west region (13 of these overlap with the Bank's east or south regions) competing for $9.6 billion in deposits.
Competitors for deposits include commercial banks, credit unions, money market funds, and other investment alternatives, such as mutual funds, full service and discount broker-dealers, equity markets, brokerage accounts and government securities. The Bank's competition for loans comes principally from other financial institutions, mortgage banking companies, mortgage brokers and life insurance companies. The Bank expects competition to continue to increase in the future as a result of legislative, regulatory and technological changes within the financial services industry. Technological advances, for example, have lowered barriers to market entry, allowed banks to expand their geographic reach by providing services over the Internet and made it possible for non-depository institutions to offer products and services that traditionally have been provided by banks. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which permits affiliation among banks, securities firms and insurance companies, also has changed the competitive environment in which the Bank conducts business.
Internet Website and Information
The Company maintains a website at www.bankwithsouthern.com. The information contained on that website is not included as part of, or incorporated by reference into, this Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Company currently makes available on or through its website at http://investors.bankwithsouthern.com its Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K or amendments to these reports. These materials are also available free of charge on the Securities and Exchange Commission's website at www.sec.gov.
Lending Activities
General. The Bank's lending activities consist of origination of loans secured by mortgages on one- to four-family and multifamily residential real estate, commercial and agricultural real estate, construction loans on residential and commercial properties, commercial and agricultural business loans and consumer loans. The Bank has also occasionally purchased loan participation interests originated by other lenders which are secured by properties generally located in the States of Missouri or Arkansas.
Supervision of the loan portfolio is the responsibility of our Chief Credit Officer, Mark E. Hecker, and our three Regional Presidents: William D. Hribovsek, Justin G. Cox, and Christopher R. ("Robb") Roberts. The Chief Credit Officer is responsible for oversight of underwriting, loan policy, and administration. The Regional Presidents are responsible for oversight of loan production. Loan officers have varying amounts of lending authority depending upon experience and types of loans. Loans beyond their authority are presented to the next level of authority, which may include one of three Regional Small Business Loan Committees, one of three Senior Regional Loan Committees, or our Agricultural Loan Committee.
The Regional Small Business Loan Committees each consists of lenders selected by the respective Regional President, and is authorized to approve lending relationships up to $1.5 million. The Regional Senior Loan Committees each consist of that region's Regional President, and several other senior lending officers. In addition, non-employee directors serve on the Bank's south and west Senior Regional Loan Committees. Each Senior Regional Loan Committee is authorized to approve lending relationships up to $3.0 million. The Bank's Agricultural Loan Committee consists of several senior lending officers and is authorized to approve agricultural lending relationships up to $3.0 million.
Lending relationships above $3.0 require approval of our Bank Senior Loan Committee, comprised of our Chief Lending Officer, Chief Credit Officer, all three Regional Presidents, and an additional senior lender from each region, or the approval of our Executive Loan Committee, comprised of our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Lending Officer, and three Regional Presidents. In addition to the approval of the Bank Senior Loan Committee or the
 
6

 
 
Executive Loan Committee, lending relationships in excess of $4.0 million require the approval of the Discount Committee, which is comprised of all Bank directors. All loans are subject to ratification by the full Board of Directors.
The aggregate amount of loans that the Bank is permitted to make under applicable federal regulations to any one borrower, including related entities, or the aggregate amount that the Bank could have invested in any one real estate project, is based on the Bank's capital levels. See "Regulation - Loans to One Borrower." At June 30, 2017, the maximum amount which the Bank could lend to any one borrower and the borrower's related entities was approximately $47.1 million. At June 30, 2017, the Bank's ten largest credit relationships, as defined by loan to one borrower limitations, ranged from $26.8 million to $14.6 million, net of participation interests sold. As of June 30, 2017, the majority of these credits were commercial real estate, multi-family real estate, or commercial business loans, and all of these relationships were performing in accordance with their terms.

Residential Mortgage Lending. The Bank actively originates loans for the acquisition or refinance of one- to four-family residences. These loans are originated as a result of customer and real estate agent referrals, existing and walk-in customers and from responses to the Bank's marketing campaigns. At June 30, 2017, residential loans secured by one- to four-family residences totaled $311.0 million, or 24.1% of net loans receivable.
The Bank currently offers both fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgage ("ARM") loans. During the year ended June 30, 2017, the Bank originated $34.5 million of ARM loans and $27.1 million of fixed-rate loans that were secured by one- to four-family residences, for retention in the Bank's portfolio. An additional $33.1 million in fixed-rate one- to four-family residential loans were originated for sale on the secondary market. Substantially all of the one- to four-family residential mortgage originations in the Bank's portfolio are located within the Bank's market area.
The Bank generally originates one- to four-family residential mortgage loans in amounts up to 90% of the lower of the purchase price or appraised value of residential property. For loans originated in excess of 80% loan-to-value, the Bank charges an additional 50-75 basis points, but does not require private mortgage insurance. At June 30, 2017, the remaining balance of loans originated with a loan-to-value ratio in excess of 80% was $74.5 million. For fiscal years ended June 30, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013, originations of one- to four-family loans in excess of 80% loan-to-value have totaled $25.0 million, $16.5 million, $24.3 million, $13.6 million and $13.8 million, respectively, totaling $93.2 million. The remaining balance of those loans at June 30, 2017, was $59.4 million. Originating loans with higher loan-to-value ratios presents additional credit risk to the Bank. Consequently, the Bank limits this product to borrowers with a favorable credit history and a demonstrable ability to service the debt. The majority of new residential mortgage loans originated by the Bank conform to secondary market underwriting standards, however, documentation of loan files may not be adequate to allow for immediate sale. The interest rates charged on these loans are competitively priced based on local market conditions, the availability of funding, and anticipated profit margins. Fixed and ARM loans originated by the Bank are amortized over periods as long as 30 years, but typically are repaid over shorter periods.
Fixed-rate loans secured by one- to four-family residences have contractual maturities up to 30 years, and are generally fully amortizing with payments due monthly. These loans normally remain outstanding for a substantially shorter period of time because of refinancing and other prepayments. A significant change in the interest rate environment can alter the average life of a residential loan portfolio. The one- to four-family fixed-rate loans do not contain prepayment penalties. At June 30, 2017, one- to four-family loans with a fixed rate totaled $147.5 million, and had a weighted-average maturity of 106 months.
The Bank currently originates one- to four-family adjustable rate mortgage ("ARM") loans, which adjust annually, after an initial period of one, three, five, or seven years. Typically, originated ARM loans secured by owner occupied properties reprice at a margin of 2.75% to 3.00% over the weekly average yield on United States Treasury securities adjusted to a constant maturity of one year ("CMT"). Generally, ARM loans secured by non-owner occupied residential properties reprice at a margin of 3.75% over the CMT index. Current residential ARM loan originations are subject to annual and lifetime interest rate caps and floors. As a consequence of using interest rate caps, initial rates which may be at a premium or discount, and a "CMT" loan index, the interest earned on the Bank's ARMs will react differently to changing interest rates than the Bank's cost of funds. At June 30, 2017, one- to four-family loans tied to the CMT index totaled $131.5 million. One- to four-family loans tied to other indices totaled $36.1 million.
In underwriting one- to four-family residential real estate loans, the Bank evaluates the borrower's ability to meet debt service requirements at current as well as fully indexed rates for ARM loans, as well as the value of the property securing the loan. Most properties securing real estate loans made by the Bank during fiscal 2017 had appraisals performed on them by independent fee appraisers approved and qualified by the Board of Directors. The Bank generally requires borrowers to obtain title insurance and fire, property and flood insurance (if indicated) in an amount not less than the amount of the loan. Real estate loans originated by the Bank generally contain a "due on sale" clause allowing the Bank to declare the unpaid principal balance due and payable upon the sale of the security property.
The Bank also originates loans secured by multi-family residential properties that are often located outside the Company's primary market area, but made to borrowers who operate within the primary market area. At June 30, 2017, the Bank had $151.6 million, or 10.9% of net loans receivable, in multi-family residential real estate. The majority of the multi-family residential loans that are originated by the Bank are amortized over periods generally up to 27 years, with balloon maturities up to ten years. Both fixed and adjustable interest rates are offered and it is
 
10

 
 
typical for the Bank to include an interest rate "floor" and "ceiling" in these loan agreements. Variable rate loans typically adjust daily, monthly, quarterly or annually based on the Wall Street prime interest rate. Generally, multi-family residential loans do not exceed 85% of the lower of the appraised value or purchase price of the secured property. The Bank generally requires a Board-approved independent certified fee appraiser to be engaged in determining the collateral value. As a general rule, the Bank requires the unlimited guaranty of all individuals (or entities) owning (directly or indirectly) 20% or more of the stock of the borrowing entity.
The primary risk associated with multifamily loans is the ability of the income-producing property that collateralizes the loan to produce adequate cash flow to service the debt. High unemployment or generally weak economic conditions may result in borrowers having to provide rental rate concessions to achieve adequate occupancy rates. In an effort to reduce these risks, the Bank will evaluate the guarantor's ability to inject personal funds as a tertiary source of repayment.
Commercial Real Estate Lending. The Bank actively originates loans secured by commercial real estate including land (improved and unimproved), shopping centers, retail establishments, nursing homes and other healthcare related facilities, and other businesses generally located in the Bank's market area. At June 30, 2017, the Bank had $603.9 million in commercial real estate loans, which represented 43.2% of net loans receivable. Of this amount, $140.0 million were loans secured by agricultural properties. The increase over the last several fiscal years in agricultural lending is the result of an intentional focus by the Bank on that segment of our market, including the hiring of personnel with knowledge of agricultural lending and experience in that type of business development. The Bank expects to continue to grow its agricultural lending portfolio, but expects that the rate of growth experienced over the last several fiscal years is unlikely to be maintained. The Bank expects to continue to maintain or increase the percentage of commercial real estate loans, inclusive of agricultural properties, in its total portfolio.
Commercial real estate loans originated by the Bank are generally based on amortization schedules of up to 25 years with monthly principal and interest payments. Generally, these loans have fixed interest rates and maturities ranging up to seven years, with a balloon payment due at maturity. Alternatively, for some loans, the interest rate adjusts at least annually after an initial period up to five years, based upon the Wall Street prime rate. The Bank typically includes an interest rate "floor" in the loan agreement. The Bank's fixed-rate commercial real estate portfolio has a weighted average maturity of 38 months. Variable rate commercial real estate originations typically adjust daily, monthly, quarterly or annually based on the Wall Street prime rate. Generally, loans for improved commercial properties do not exceed 80% of the lower of the appraised value or the purchase price of the secured property. Agricultural real estate terms offered differ slightly, with amortization schedules of up to 25 years with an 80% loan-to-value ratio, or 30 years with a 75% loan-to-value ratio. Agricultural real estate loans generally require annual, instead of monthly, payments. Before credit is extended, the Bank analyzes the financial condition of the borrower, the borrower's credit history, and the reliability and predictability of the cash flow generated by the property and the value of the property itself. Generally, personal guarantees are obtained from the borrower in addition to obtaining the secured property as collateral for such loans. The Bank also generally requires appraisals on properties securing commercial real estate to be performed by a Board-approved independent certified fee appraiser.
Generally, loans secured by commercial real estate involve a greater degree of credit risk than one- to four-family residential mortgage loans. These loans typically involve large balances to single borrowers or groups of related borrowers. Because payments on loans secured by commercial real estate are often dependent on the successful operation or management of the secured property, repayment of such loans may be subject to adverse conditions in the real estate market or the economy. See "Asset Quality."
Construction Lending. The Bank originates real estate loans secured by property or land that is under construction or development. At June 30, 2017, the Bank had $106.8 million, or 7.6% of net loans receivable in construction loans outstanding.
Construction loans originated by the Bank are generally secured by mortgage loans for the construction of owner occupied residential real estate or to finance speculative construction secured by residential real estate, land development, or owner-operated or non-owner occupied commercial real estate. At June 30, 2017, $41.7 million of the Bank's construction loans were secured by one- to four-family residential real estate (of which $8.3 million was for speculative construction), $20.1 million of which were secured by multi-family residential real estate, and $44.9 million of which were secured by commercial real estate. During construction, these loans typically require monthly
 
11

 
 
interest-only payments and have maturities ranging from 6 to 12 months. Once construction is completed, permanent construction loans may be converted to monthly payments using amortization schedules of up to 30 years on residential and generally up to 25 years on commercial real estate.
Speculative construction and land development lending generally affords the Bank an opportunity to receive higher interest rates and fees with shorter terms to maturity than those obtainable from residential lending. Nevertheless, construction and land development lending is generally considered to involve a higher level of credit risk than one- to four-family residential lending due to (i) the concentration of principal among relatively few borrowers and development projects, (ii) the increased difficulty at the time the loan is made of accurately estimating building or development costs and the selling price of the finished product, (iii) the increased difficulty and costs of monitoring and disbursing funds for the loan,  (iv) the higher degree of sensitivity to increases in market rates of interest and changes in local economic conditions, and (v) the increased difficulty of working out problem loans. Due in part to these risk factors, the Bank may be required from time to time to modify or extend the terms of some of these types of loans. In an effort to reduce these risks, the application process includes a submission to the Bank of accurate plans, specifications and costs of the project to be constructed. These items are also used as a basis to determine the appraised value of the subject property. Loan amounts are generally limited to 80% of the lesser of current appraised value and/or the cost of construction.
Consumer Lending. The Bank offers a variety of secured consumer loans, including home equity, direct and indirect automobile loans, second mortgages, mobile homes and loans secured by deposits. The Bank originates substantially all of its consumer loans in its primary market area. Usually, consumer loans are originated with fixed rates for terms of up to five years, with the exception of home equity lines of credit, which are variable, tied to the prime rate of interest, and are for a period of ten years. At June 30, 2017, the Bank's consumer loan portfolio totaled $63.7 million, or 4.6% of net loans receivable.
Home equity loans represented 55.3% of the Bank's consumer loan portfolio at June 30, 2017, and totaled $35.2 million, or 2.5% of net loans receivable.
Home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) are secured with a deed of trust and are generally issued for up to 90% of the appraised or assessed value of the property securing the line of credit, less the outstanding balance on the first mortgage. Interest rates on the HELOCs are adjustable and are tied to the current prime interest rate, generally with an interest rate floor in the loan agreement. This rate is obtained from the Wall Street Journal and adjusts on a daily basis. Interest rates are based upon the loan-to-value ratio of the property with better rates given to borrowers with more equity. HELOCs, which are secured by residential properties, are generally secured by stronger collateral than other consumer loans and because of the adjustable rate structure, present less interest rate risk to the Bank.
Automobile loans represented 10.0% of the Bank's consumer loan portfolio at June 30, 2017, and totaled $6.4 million, or 0.46% of net loans receivable. Of that total, an immaterial amount was originated by auto dealers. Typically, automobile loans are made for terms of up to 60 months for new and used vehicles. Loans secured by automobiles have fixed rates and are generally made in amounts up to 100% of the purchase price of the vehicle.
Consumer loan terms vary according to the type and value of collateral, length of contract and creditworthiness of the borrower. The underwriting standards employed for consumer loans include employment stability, an application, a determination of the applicant's payment history on other debts, and an assessment of ability to meet existing and proposed obligations. Although creditworthiness of the applicant is a primary consideration, the underwriting process also includes a comparison of the value of the security, if any, in relation to the proposed loan amount.
Consumer loans may entail greater credit risk than do residential mortgage loans, because they are generally unsecured or are secured by rapidly depreciable or mobile assets, such as automobiles. In the event of repossession or default, there may be no secondary source of repayment or the underlying value of the collateral could be insufficient to repay the loan. In addition, consumer loan collections are dependent on the borrower's continuing financial stability, and thus are more likely to be affected by adverse personal circumstances.

Furthermore, the application of various federal and state laws, including bankruptcy and insolvency laws, may limit the amount which can be recovered on such loans. The Bank's delinquency levels for these types of loans are reflective of these risks. See "Asset Classification."
Commercial Business Lending. The Bank's commercial business lending activities encompass loans with a variety of purposes and security, including loans to finance accounts receivable, inventory, equipment and operating lines of credit. At June 30, 2017, the Bank had $247.2 million in commercial business loans outstanding, or 17.7% of net loans receivable. Of this amount, $85.7 million were loans related to agriculture, including amortizing equipment loans and annual production lines. The Bank expects to continue to maintain the current percentage of commercial business loans in its total loan portfolio.
The Bank currently offers both fixed and adjustable rate commercial business loans. At year end, the Bank had $137.6 million in fixed rate and $109.6 million of adjustable rate commercial business loans. The adjustable rate business loans typically reprice daily, monthly, quarterly, or annually, in accordance with the Wall Street prime rate of interest. The Bank typically includes an interest rate "floor" in the loan agreement.
Commercial business loan terms vary according to the type and value of collateral, length of contract and creditworthiness of the borrower. Generally, commercial loans secured by fixed assets are amortized over periods up to five years, while commercial operating lines of credit or agricultural production lines are generally for a one year period. The Bank's commercial business loans are evaluated based on the loan application, a determination of the applicant's payment history on other debts, business stability and an assessment of ability to meet existing obligations and payments on the proposed loan. Although creditworthiness of the applicant is a primary consideration, the underwriting process also includes a comparison of the value of the security, if any, in relation to the proposed loan amount.
Unlike residential mortgage loans, which generally are made on the basis of the borrower's ability to make repayment from his or her employment and other income, and which are secured by real property whose value tends to be more easily ascertainable, commercial business loans are of higher risk and typically are made on the basis of the borrower's ability to make repayment from the cash flow of the borrower's business. As a result, the availability of funds for the repayment of commercial business loans may be substantially dependent on the success of the business itself. Further, the collateral securing the loans may depreciate over time, may be difficult to appraise and may fluctuate in value based on the success of the business.

As of June 30, 2017, loans with a maturity date after June 30, 2018, with fixed interest rates totaled $658.1 million, and loans with a maturity date after June 30, 2018, with adjustable rates totaled $144.7 million.
Loan Originations, Sales and Purchases
Generally, all loans are originated by the Bank's staff, who are salaried loan officers. All loan officers are eligible for bonuses based on production, market performance, and credit quality. Certain lenders, in particular, those originating higher volume of residential loans for sale on the secondary market, may earn a relatively higher percentage of their total compensation through bonuses. Loan applications are generally taken and processed at each of the Bank's full-service locations, and the Bank in recent years began processing online applications for single-family residential loans. The Bank also offers secondary market loans to its customers.
While the Bank originates both adjustable-rate and fixed-rate loans, the ability to originate loans is dependent upon the relative customer demand for loans in its market. In fiscal 2017, the Bank originated $494.9 million of loans, compared to $425.9 million and $391.2 million, respectively, in fiscal 2016 and 2015. Of these loans, mortgage loan originations were $399.2 million, $334.2 million and $276.0 million in fiscal 2017, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Increases in originations over recent periods is attributed primarily to an expanded market area and customer base following recent acquisitions.
From time to time, the Bank has purchased loan participations consistent with its loan underwriting standards. In fiscal 2017, the Bank purchased $6.5 million of new loan participations. At June 30, 2017, loan participations totaled $12.5 million, or 0.89% of net loans receivable. At June 30, 2017, all of these participations were performing in accordance with their respective terms. The Bank evaluates additional loan participations on an ongoing basis, based in part on local loan demand, liquidity, portfolio and capital levels.

Amount reported in fiscal 2017 includes the Company's acquisition of loans from the Capaha acquisition recorded at a $152.2 million fair value. Amount reported in fiscal 2015 includes the Company's acquisition of loans from the Peoples acquisition recorded at a $190.4 million fair value.

Loan Commitments
The Bank issues commitments for one- to four-family residential mortgage loans, operating or working capital lines of credit, and standby letters-of-credit. Such commitments may be oral or in writing with specified terms, conditions and at a specified rate of interest. The Bank had outstanding net loan commitments of approximately $251.9 million at June 30, 2017. See Note 14 of Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 8.
Loan Fees
In addition to interest earned on loans, the Bank receives income from fees in connection with loan originations, loan modifications, late payments and for miscellaneous services related to its loans. Income from these activities varies from period to period depending upon the volume and type of loans made and competitive conditions.
Asset Quality
Delinquent Loans. Generally, when a borrower fails to make a required payment on mortgage or installment loans, the Bank begins the collection process by mailing a computer generated notice to the customer. If the delinquency is not cured promptly, the customer is contacted again by notice or telephone. After an account secured by real estate becomes over 60 days past due, the Bank will typically send a 30-day demand notice to the customer which, if not cured or unless satisfactory arrangements have been made, will lead to foreclosure.
 
15

 
 
Foreclosure may not begin until the loan reaches 120 days delinquency in the case of consumer residential loans. For consumer loans, the Missouri Right-To-Cure Statute is followed, which requires issuance of specifically worded notices at specific time intervals prior to repossession or further collection efforts.
The following table sets forth the Bank's loan delinquencies by type and by amount at June 30, 2017.

Non-Performing Assets. The table below sets forth the amounts and categories of non-performing assets in the Bank's loan portfolio. Loans are placed on non-accrual status when the collection of principal and/or interest becomes doubtful, and as a result, previously accrued interest income on the loan is removed from current income. The Bank has no reserves for uncollected interest and does not accrue interest on non-accrual loans. A loan may be transferred back to accrual status once a satisfactory repayment history has been restored. Foreclosed assets held for sale include assets acquired in settlement of loans and are shown net of reserves.
For information regarding accrual of interest on impaired loans, see Note 1 of Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 8.
The Company generally treats loans acquired with impaired credit quality as an accruing asset, despite reporting such loans as impaired, because these loans are recorded at acquisition at fair value, which includes an accretable discount which is recorded as interest income over the expected life of the obligation.

At June 30, 2017, troubled debt restructurings (TDRs) totaled $11.2 million, of which $338,000 was considered nonperforming and was included in the nonaccrual loan total above. The remaining $10.9 million in TDRs have complied with the modified terms for a reasonable period of time and are therefore considered by the Company to be accrual status loans. At June 30, 2016, TDRs totaled $8.4 million, of which $2.3 million was considered nonperforming and was included in the nonaccrual loan total above. In general, these loans were subject to classification as TDRs at June 30, 2017, on the basis of guidance under ASU 2011-02, which indicates that the Company may not consider the borrower's effective borrowing rate on the old debt immediately before the restructuring in determining whether a concession has been granted.
Real Estate Owned. Real estate properties acquired through foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure are recorded at the lower of cost or fair value, less estimated disposition costs. If fair value at the date of foreclosure is lower than the balance of the related loan, the difference will be charged-off to the allowance for loan losses at the time of transfer. Management periodically updates real estate valuations and if the value declines, a specific provision for losses on such property is established by a charge to operations. At June 30, 2017, the Company's balance of real estate owned totaled $3.0 million and included $731,000 residential properties and $2.3 million non-residential properties.
Asset Classification. Applicable regulations require that each insured institution review and classify its assets on a regular basis. In addition, in connection with examinations of insured institutions, regulatory examiners have authority to identify problem assets and, if appropriate, require them to be classified. There are three classifications for problem assets: substandard, doubtful and loss. Substandard assets must have one or more defined weaknesses and are characterized by the distinct possibility that the insured institution will sustain some loss if the deficiencies are not corrected. Doubtful assets have the weaknesses of substandard assets with the additional
 
17

 
 
characteristic that the weaknesses make collection or liquidation in full on the basis of currently existing facts, conditions and values questionable, and there is a high possibility of loss. An asset classified loss is considered uncollectible and of such little value that continuance as an asset of the institution is not warranted. When an insured institution classifies problem assets as loss, it charges off the balance of the assets. Assets which do not currently expose the Bank to sufficient risk to warrant classification in one of the aforementioned categories but possess weaknesses, may be designated as special mention. The Bank's determination as to the classification of its assets and the amount of its valuation allowances is subject to review by the FRB and the Missouri Division of Finance, which can order the establishment of additional loss allowances.
On the basis of management's review of the assets of the Company, at June 30, 2017, classified assets totaled $17.5 million, or 1.02% of total assets as compared to $16.0 million, or 1.14% of total assets at June 30, 2016. Of the amount classified as of June 30, 2017, $16.9 million was considered substandard, and $600,000 was considered doubtful. Included in classified assets at June 30, 2017, were various loans totaling $13.3 million (see Note 3 of Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 8 for more information on classified loans); foreclosed real estate and repossessed assets totaling $3.1 million; and Company investments in pooled trust preferred securities with a book value of $1.1 million. Classified loans are so designated due to concerns regarding the borrower's ability to generate sufficient cash flows to service the debt. The investments in pooled trust preferred securities were classified due to concerns about the ability of the pools to generate sufficient cash flows to service the debt. These securities have previously deferred interest payments. Classified loans totaling $2.5 million had been placed on nonaccrual status at June 30, 2017, of which $1.8 million were more than 30 days delinquent. Of the remaining $10.8 million of classified loans, $251,000 were more than 30 days delinquent.
Other Loans of Concern. In addition to the classified assets above, there was also an aggregate of $13.3 million in loans, with respect to which management has concerns as to the ability of the borrowers to continue to comply with present loan repayment terms, which may ultimately result in the classification of such assets. These loans continued to perform according to terms as of June 30, 2017, but were identified as having elevated risk due to concerns regarding the borrower's ability to continue to generate sufficient cash flows to service the debt.
Allowance for Loan Losses. The Bank's allowance for loan losses is established through a provision for loan losses based on management's evaluation of the risk inherent in the loan portfolio and changes in the nature and volume of loan activity, including those loans which are being specifically monitored. Such evaluation, which includes a review of loans for which full collectability may not be reasonably assured, considers among other matters, the estimated fair value of the underlying collateral, economic conditions, historical loan loss experience and other factors that warrant recognition in provisioning for loan losses. These provisions for loan losses are charged against earnings in the year they are established. The Bank had an allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2017, of $15.5 million, which represented 246% of nonperforming assets as compared to an allowance of $13.8 million, which represented 152% of nonperforming assets at June 30, 2016.
At June 30, 2017, the Bank also had an allowance for credit losses on off-balance sheet credit exposures of $1.1 million, as compared to $745,000 at June 30, 2016. This amount is maintained as a separate liability account to cover estimated potential credit losses associated with off-balance sheet credit instruments such as off-balance sheet loan commitments, standby letters of credit, and guarantees.
Although management believes that it uses the best information available to determine the allowance, unforeseen market conditions could result in adjustments and net earnings could be significantly affected if circumstances differ substantially from assumptions used in making the final determination. Future additions to the allowance will likely be the result of periodic loan, property and collateral reviews and thus cannot be predicted with certainty in advance.
The following table sets forth an analysis of the Bank's allowance for loan losses for the periods indicated. Where specific loan loss reserves have been established, any difference between the loss reserve and the amount of loss realized has been charged or credited to current income.

Investment Activities
General. Under Missouri law, the Bank is permitted to invest in various types of liquid assets, including U.S. Government and State of Missouri obligations, securities of various federal agencies, certain certificates of deposit of insured banks and savings institutions, banker's acceptances, repurchase agreements, federal funds, commercial paper, investment grade corporate debt securities and obligations of States and their political sub-divisions. Generally, the investment policy of the Company is to invest funds among various categories of investments and repricing characteristics based upon the Bank's need for liquidity, to provide collateral for borrowings and public unit deposits, to help reach financial performance targets and to help maintain asset/liability management objectives.
The Company's investment portfolio is managed in accordance with the Bank's investment policy which was adopted by the Board of Directors of the Bank and is implemented by members of the asset/liability management committee which consists of the President/CEO, the CFO, the COO and four outside directors.
Investment purchases and/or sales must be authorized by the appropriate party, depending on the aggregate size of the investment transaction, prior to any investment transaction. The Board of Directors reviews all investment transactions. All investment purchases are identified as available-for-sale ("AFS") at the time of purchase. The Company has not classified any investment securities as held-to-maturity over the last five years. Securities classified as "AFS" must be reported at fair value with unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, recorded as a separate component of stockholders' equity. At June 30, 2017, AFS securities totaled $144.4 million (excluding FHLB and Federal Reserve Bank membership stock). For information regarding the amortized cost and market values of the Company's investments, see Note 2 of Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 8.
As of June 30, 2017, the Company had no derivative instruments and no outstanding hedging activities. Management has reviewed potential uses for derivative instruments and hedging activities, but has no immediate plans to employ these tools.
Debt and Other Securities. At June 30, 2017, the Company's debt and other securities portfolio totaled $66.1 million, or 3.87% of total assets as compared to $58.0 million, or 4.13% of total assets at June 30, 2016. During fiscal 2017, the Bank had $6.3 million in maturities and $10.4 million in securities purchases. Of the securities that matured, $5.2 million was called for early redemption. At June 30, 2017, the investment securities portfolio included $10.4 million in U.S. government and government agency bonds, of which $8.4 million is subject to early redemption at the option of the issuer, and $50.0 million in municipal bonds, of which $44.1 million is subject to early redemption at the option of the issuer. The remaining portfolio consists of $5.7 million in other securities (including pooled trust preferred securities with an estimated fair value of $1.2 million). Based on projected maturities, the weighted average life of the debt and other securities portfolio at June 30, 2017, was 45 months. Membership stock held in the FHLB of Des Moines, totaling $3.5 million, FHLB of Chicago totaling $215,000, and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, totaling $2.4 million, along with equity stock of $533,000 in three correspondent (banker's) banks, was not included in the above totals.
At June 30, 2017, the Company owned four pooled trust preferred securities with an estimated fair value of $1.2 million and a book value of $1.6 million. For three of these securities, the estimated fair value of $824,000 is less than the book value of $1.4 million. The June 30, 2017, cash flow analysis for these three securities indicated it is probable the Company will receive all contracted principal and related interest projected. The cash flow analysis used in making this determination was based on anticipated default, recovery, and prepayment rates, and the resulting cash flows were discounted based on the yield anticipated at the time the securities were purchased. At December 31, 2008, analysis of the fourth pooled trust preferred security indicated other-than-temporary impairment (OTTI). The loss recognized at that time reduced the amortized cost basis for that security, and as of June 30, 2017, the estimated fair value of the security exceeds the new, lower amortized cost basis. See Note 2 of Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 8.
Mortgage-Backed Securities. At June 30, 2017, mortgage-backed securities ("MBS") totaled $78.3 million, or 4.6%, of total assets, as compared to $71.2 million, or 5.1%, of total assets at June 30, 2016. During fiscal 2017, the Bank had maturities and prepayments of $16.2 million and $21.1 million in purchases of MBS. At June 30, 2017, the MBS portfolio included $51.6 million in fixed-rate MBS, and $26.7 million in fixed rate collateralized mortgage obligations ("CMOs"), all of which passed the Federal Financial Institutions Examination
 
21

 
 
Council's sensitivity test. Based on projected prepayment rates, the weighted average life of the MBS and CMOs at June 30, 2017, was 47 months. Prepayment rates may cause the anticipated average life of MBS portfolio to extend or shorten based upon actual prepayment rates.

Deposit Activities and Other Sources of Funds
General. The Company's primary sources of funds are deposits, borrowings, payments of principal and interest on loans, MBS and CMOs, interest and principal received on investment securities and other short-term investments, and funds provided from operating results. Loan repayments are a relatively stable source of funds, while deposit inflows and outflows and loan prepayments are significantly influenced by general market interest rates and overall economic conditions.
Borrowings, including FHLB advances, have been used at times to provide additional liquidity. Borrowings are used on an overnight or short-term basis to compensate for periodic fluctuations in cash flows, and are used on a longer term basis to fund loan growth and to help manage the Company's sensitivity to fluctuating interest rates.
Deposits. The Bank's depositors are generally residents and entities located in the State of Missouri or Arkansas. Deposits are attracted from within the Bank's market area through the offering of a broad selection of deposit instruments, including demand deposit accounts, negotiable order of withdrawal ("NOW") accounts, money market deposit accounts, saving accounts, certificates of deposit and retirement savings plans. Deposit account terms
 
23

 
 
vary according to the minimum balance required, the time periods the funds may remain on deposit and the interest rate, among other factors. In determining the terms of its deposit accounts, the Bank considers current market interest rates, profitability to the Bank, managing interest rate sensitivity and its customer preferences and concerns. The Bank's Asset/Liability Committee regularly reviews its deposit mix and pricing.
The Bank will periodically promote a particular deposit product as part of the Bank's overall marketing plan. Deposit products have been promoted through various mediums, which include radio and newspaper advertisements, as well as "grassroots" marketing techniques, such as sponsorship of – or activity at – community events. The emphasis of these campaigns is to increase consumer awareness and market share of the Bank.
The flow of deposits is influenced significantly by general economic conditions, changes in prevailing interest rates, and competition. Based on its experience, the Bank believes that its deposits are relatively stable sources of funds. However, the ability of the Bank to attract and maintain certificates of deposit, and the rates paid on these deposits, has been and will continue to be significantly affected by market conditions. The following table depicts the composition of the Bank's deposits as of June 30, 2017:
