WOODBRIDGE, N.J., July 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northfield Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:NFBK), the holding company for Northfield Bank, reported basic earnings per common share of $0.08 and $0.17 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, as compared to $0.07 and $0.16 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Diluted earnings per common share was $0.08 and $0.16 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, as compared to $0.07 and $0.16 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Prior year earnings per share amounts have been restated to reflect the completion of our second-step conversion at a conversion ratio of 1.4029 to 1.

John W. Alexander, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Northfield commented, "Our results reflect strong loan growth as we continue to focus on shifting our asset composition from investments to loans, resulting in loans increasing to over 48% of total assets at quarter end. This shift, combined with our decision not to retain higher cost time deposits and not to replace borrowings as they mature, has allowed us to maintain our net interest income from the first quarter of 2013." Continuing, Mr. Alexander cautioned, "Rising interest rates may adversely affect our ability to continue to maintain the level of loan growth we have experienced to date. Additionally, interest rate increases have and will continue to adversely affect the value of our investment portfolio thus negatively affecting reported tangible book value."

Mr. Alexander continued, "I am pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per common share. The quarterly dividend will be payable on August 21, 2013, to stockholders of record as of August 7, 2013."

Financial Condition

Total assets decreased $123.0 million, or 4.4%, to $2.69 billion at June 30, 2013, from $2.81 billion at December 31, 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to decreases in cash and cash equivalents of $103.4 million and, securities available-for-sale of $133.5 million, offset by increases in net loans held-for-investment of $89.4 million, bank owned life insurance of $17.4 million, and other assets of $12.8 million.

Total loans held for investment, net increased $89.8 million to $1.33 billion at June 30, 2013, as compared to $1.24 billion at December 31, 2012.

Originated loans held-for-investment, net, totaled $1.17 billion at June 30, 2013, as compared to $1.07 billion at December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily due to an increase in multifamily real estate loans, which increased $86.8 million, or 14.2%, to $696.9 million at June 30, 2013, from $610.1 million at December 31, 2012. Currently, management is primarily focused on originating multifamily loans, with less emphasis on other loan types.

Purchased credit-impaired (PCI) loans, primarily acquired as part of a transaction with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, totaled $68.2 million at June 30, 2013, as compared to $75.3 million at December 31, 2012. The Company accreted interest income of $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $3.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

The Company's securities available-for-sale portfolio totaled $1.14 billion at June 30, 2013, compared to $1.28 billion at December 31, 2012. At June 30, 2013, $998.2 million of the portfolio consisted of residential mortgage-backed securities issued or guaranteed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or Ginnie Mae. The Company also held residential mortgage-backed securities not guaranteed by these three entities, referred to as "private label securities." The private label securities had an amortized cost of $5.7 million and an estimated fair value of $5.8 million at June 30, 2013. In addition to the above mortgage-backed securities, the Company held $95.7 million in corporate bonds which were all rated investment grade at June 30, 2013, $30.2 million of bonds issued by Federal Home Loan Bank system, and $12.2 million of equity investments in mutual funds, which focus on investments that qualify under the Community Reinvestment Act and money market mutual funds. 

Interest-bearing deposits in other financial institutions totaled $13.0 million at June 30, 2013, as compared to $103.4 million at December 31, 2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to funding loan growth and the purchase of bank owned life insurance.

Total liabilities decreased $427.7 million, or 17.8%, to $1.97 billion at June 30, 2013, from $2.40 billion at December 31, 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to decreases in deposits of $422.9 million and borrowings of $6.8 million, partially offset by an increase in other liabilities of $2.0 million.

The decrease in deposits at June 30, 2013 from December 31, 2012, excluding the deposits used to purchase stock in the second-step conversion of $289.6 million, was $133.4 million, or 8.0%.  The decrease was attributable to decreases of $140.1 million in certificates of deposit accounts and $31.1 million in money market accounts, partially offset by increases of $22.0 million in transaction accounts and $15.8 million in savings accounts.

Borrowings decreased by $6.8 million, or 1.6%, to $412.3 million at June 30, 2013, from $419.1 million at December 31, 2012. Management utilizes borrowings to mitigate interest rate risk, for short-term liquidity, and to a lesser extent as part of leverage strategies. The following is a table of term borrowing maturities (excluding capitalized leases and short-term borrowings) and the weighted average rate by year (dollars in thousands):

Year Amount Weighted Avg. Rate

Total stockholders' equity increased by $304.7 million to $719.6 million at June 30, 2013, from $414.9 million at December 31, 2012. This increase was primarily attributable to a $330.1 million increase related to the stock conversion net proceeds, net income of $9.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, and $2.6 million increase related to ESOP and equity award activity. These increases were partially offset by a $16.8 million decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income as a result of an increased interest rate environment and dividend payments of approximately $20.3 million.

Total Non-accruing Loans

Total non-accruing loans decreased $12.4 million to $22.6 million at June 30, 2013, from $35.0 million at December 31, 2012. This decrease was primarily attributable to $5.4 million of loans held-for-sale being sold, $1.9 million of pay-offs and principal pay-downs, $96,000 of charge-offs, $3.3 million of loans returned to accrual status, and the sale of $3.7 million of loans held-for-investment. The above decreases in non-accruing loans were partially offset by $2.0 million of loans being placed on non-accrual status during the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Loans Subject to Troubled Debt Restructuring (TDR) Agreements

Included in non-accruing loans are loans subject to TDR agreements totaling $11.9 million and $19.3 million at June 30, 2013, and December 31, 2012, respectively. At June 30, 2013, $1.4 million, or 12.0% of the $11.9 million were not performing in accordance with their restructured terms, as compared to $3.3 million, or 17.0%, at December 31, 2012.

The Company also holds loans subject to restructuring agreements that are on accrual status, totaling $26.7 million and $25.7 million at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. At June 30, 2013, $10.1 million, or 37.7% of the $26.7 million were not performing in accordance with the restructured terms, as compared to none at December 31, 2012. Of the $10.1 million not performing in accordance with their restructured terms at June 30, 2013, all loans have subsequently made their June 1, 2013 payment. 

Loans 90 Days or More Past Due and Still Accruing and Other Real Estate Owned

Loans 90 days or more past due and still accruing increased $185,000 to $806,000 at June 30, 2013, from $621,000 at December 31, 2012, and primarily consist of residential real estate loans.

Other real estate owned was $776,000 and $870,000 at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

Delinquency Status of Accruing Loans 30-89 Days Delinquent

Loans 30 to 89 days delinquent and on accrual status at June 30, 2013, totaled $24.6 million, an increase of $9.8 million from the December 31, 2012, balance of $14.8 million. The following tables set forth delinquencies for accruing loans by type and by amount at June 30, 2013, March 31, 2013, and December 31, 2012 (dollars in thousands).

The increase of $9.8 million in loans 30 to 89 days delinquent and on accrual status is primarily attributed to one $6.1 million relationship previously discussed, and acquired loans totaling $1.1 million.

PCI Loans (Held-for-Investment)

At June 30, 2013, based on recorded contractual principal, 4.2% of PCI loans were past due 30 to 89 days, and 12.0% were past due 90 days or more, as compared to 5.4% and 11.6%, respectively, at December 31, 2012.

Results of Operations

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 and 2012

Net income was $4.3 million and $3.9 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Significant variances from the comparable prior year period are as follows: a $1.7 million increase in net interest income, a $127,000 decrease in the provision for loan losses, a $268,000 increase in non-interest income, a $1.4 million increase in non-interest expense, and a $378,000 increase in income tax expense.

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, increased $1.7 million, or 10.2%, due primarily to a $285.3 million, or 12.6%, increase in our interest-earning assets partially offset by a seven basis point, or 2.3%, decrease in our net interest margin to 2.94%. The increase in average interest-earning assets was due primarily to increases in average loans outstanding of $212.1 million, mortgage-backed securities of $12.9 million, other securities of $42.8 million, and deposits in financial institutions of $18.5 million. The June 30, 2013, quarter included loan prepayment income of $292,000 compared to $226,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The June 30, 2013, quarter also included a recovery of $256,000 of interest income that was previously applied to principal related to loan recoveries. Rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 29 basis points to 0.96% for the current quarter as compared to 1.25% for the prior year period. This was offset by a 43 basis point decrease in yields earned on interest earning assets to 3.60% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, as compared to 4.03% for the comparable quarter in 2012.

The provision for loan losses decreased $127,000, or 23.3%, to $417,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, from $544,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in the provision for loan losses was due primarily to net recoveries of $87,000, consisting of gross recoveries of $614,000 and gross charge-offs of $527,000, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to net charge-offs of $602,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, as a result of improvements in non-performing loans and stabilization of collateral values which were partially offset by an increase in loan production from the comparable prior year period.

Non-interest income increased $268,000, or 18.7%, to $1.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, from $1.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. This increase was primarily a result of a $462,000 increase in gain on securities transactions, net, and an $114,000 increase in income on bank owned life insurance partially offset by an increase of $362,000 in other-than-temporary impairment losses on securities.  Securities gains in the second quarter of 2013 included $63,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio, while the second quarter of 2012 included securities losses of $143,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio. The trading portfolio is utilized to fund the Company's deferred compensation obligation to certain employees and directors of the plan. The participants of this plan, at their election, defer a portion of their compensation. Gains and losses on trading securities have no effect on net income since participants benefit from, and bear the full risk of, changes in the trading securities market values. Therefore, the Company records an equal and offsetting amount in compensation expense, reflecting the change in the Company's obligations under the plan.

Non-interest expense increased $1.4 million, or 11.9%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2012.  This is due primarily to a $958,000 increase in compensation and employee benefits which is related to increased staff due to branch openings, the Flatbush Federal Bancorp, Inc. merger (the Merger), and to a lesser extent salary adjustments effective January 1, 2013, and includes an increase of $206,000 in expense related to the Company's deferred compensation plan which is described above, and had no effect on net income.  Additionally, there was a $394,000 increase in occupancy expense primarily related to new branches and the renovation of existing branches, a $34,000 increase in data processing fees as a result of increased data and maintenance related to the Merger, and a $158,000 increase in other expenses, driven by loan commitment reserves, partially offset by a $216,000 decrease in professional fees. 

The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $2.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, was 37.0%, as compared to 35.3% for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. 

Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2013 and 2012

Net income was $9.1 million and $8.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Significant variances from the comparable prior year period are as follows: a $3.6 million increase in net interest income, a $465,000 decrease in the provision for loan losses, a $451,000 decrease in non-interest income, a $3.1 million increase in non-interest expense, and a $269,000 increase in income tax expense.

Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2013, increased $3.6 million, or 10.6%, as the $331.0 million, or 14.7%, increase in our interest-earning assets more than offset the 10 basis point decrease in our net interest margin to 2.93%. The increase in average interest-earning assets was due primarily to increases in average net loans outstanding of $194.8 million, mortgage-backed securities of $101.5 million, other securities of $12.6 million, and deposits in financial institutions of $23.0 million. The June 30, 2013 period included loan prepayment income of $782,000 compared to $414,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The six months ended June 30, 2013, also included a recovery of $256,000 of interest that was previously applied to principal. Rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 29 basis points to 0.98% for the current six months as compared to 1.27% for the prior year period. This was offset by a 44 basis point decrease in yields earned on interest earning assets to 3.62% for the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to 4.06% for the comparable six months in 2012.

The provision for loan losses decreased $465,000, or 40.1%, to $694,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013, from $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in the provision for loan losses was due primarily to a decrease in net charge-offs ,consisting of gross charge-offs of $927,000 and gross recoveries of $629,000, improvements in non-performing loans, and stabilization of collateral values. This  was partially offset by an increase in loan production from the comparable prior year period. During the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recorded net charge-offs of $298,000 compared to net charge-offs of $953,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

Non-interest income decreased $451,000, or 8.3%, to $5.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, from $5.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. This decrease was primarily a result of a decrease of $81,000 in fees and service charges for customer services, a $234,000 decrease in other income primarily due to decreases on gains on loan sales, and an increase of $434,000 in other-than-temporary impairment losses on securities, partially offset by an increase of $138,000 in gain on securities transactions, net, and a $160,000 increase in income on bank owned life insurance. Securities gains in the six months of 2013 included $306,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio, while the six months of 2012 included securities gains of $253,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio. 

Non-interest expense increased $3.1 million, or 12.8%, for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012. This is due primarily to a $1.6 million increase in compensation and employee benefits which is related to increased staff due to branch openings, the Merger, and to a lesser extent salary adjustments effective January 1, 2013, and includes an increase of $53,000 in expense related to the Company's deferred compensation plan which is described above, and had no effect on net income. Additionally, there is an $831,000 increase in occupancy expense primarily related to new branches, the Merger, and the renovation of existing branches, a $547,000 increase in data processing fees due to data conversion charges related to the Merger, and a $362,000 increase in other expenses driven by loan commitment reserves. This increase was partially offset by a $328,000 decrease in professional fees.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $5.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $4.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was 36.0%, as compared to 35.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2012. 

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013, and March 31, 2013

Net income was $4.3 million and $4.8 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2013, and March 31, 2013, respectively. Significant variances from the prior quarter are as follows: a $140,000 increase in the provision for loan losses, a $1.6 million decrease in non-interest income, a $1.2 million decrease in non-interest expense, and a $58,000 decrease in income tax expense.

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, was relatively flat as interest-earning assets decreased $56.1 million, or 2.5%, offset by our net interest margin increasing three basis points to 2.94%. The decrease in average interest-earning assets was due primarily to decreases in mortgage-backed securities of $132.3 million and in deposits in financial institutions of $28.2 million, partially offset by increases in average loans outstanding of $41.6 million and in other securities of $62.4 million. The June 30, 2013, quarter included loan prepayment income of $292,000 compared to $490,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The June 30, 2013, quarter also included a recovery of $256,000 of interest that was previously applied to principal.  Rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased four basis points to 0.96% for the current quarter as compared to 1.00% for the prior period. This was offset by a five basis point decrease in yields earned on interest earning assets to 3.60% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, as compared to 3.65% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

The provision for loan losses increased $140,000, or 50.5%, to $417,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, from $277,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The increase in the provision for loan losses is primarily attributable an increase in loan balances at June 30, 2013, as compared to March 31, 2013.

Non-interest expense decreased $1.2 million, or 8.1%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2013. This is due primarily to a $310,000 decrease in compensation and employee benefits that includes a decrease of $180,000 in expense related to the Company's deferred compensation plan which is described above, and had no effect on net income. Additionally, there was a $642,000 decrease in data processing fees that is attributable to the Company incurring one-time conversion costs in the first quarter of 2013 related to the Merger, and a $240,000 decrease in other expenses, partially offset by a $56,000 increase in occupancy expense primarily related a new branch.
