Its loans receivable increased 9 percent to $711.5 million from $652.5 million a year ago as it originated more loans.

Territorial also boosted its dividend 10 percent to 11 cents a share from 10 cents a share. It will be payable June 1 to shareholders of record as of May 18. In February, Territorial boosted its dividend to 10 cents a share from 9 cents a share.
