WOODBRIDGE, N.J., July 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NORTHFIELD BANCORP, INC. (Nasdaq:NFBK), the holding company for Northfield Bank, reported diluted earnings per common share of $0.11 and $0.21 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to diluted earnings per common share of $0.08 and $0.16 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John W. Alexander, commenting on the quarter, stated, "We experienced strong loan growth in the quarter and are moving forward with our stated goal of changing the mix of assets in which we invest. Competition for loans remains strong and this continues to place downward pressure on loan yields and thus net interest margins."

Continuing, Mr. Alexander noted, "During the quarter we announced an expansion of our stock repurchase plans bringing the total shares authorized for repurchase to approximately 8.3 million. Through the second quarter we have repurchased approximately 5.9 million shares and have reduced capital to 24.1% of total assets."

"As part of our capital deployment," Mr. Alexander continued, "I am pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has increased the quarterly cash dividend 16.7% to $0.07 per common share. This declared dividend will be payable on August 20, 2014, to stockholders of record as of August 6, 2014."

Financial Condition

Total assets decreased $12.9 million, or 0.5%, to $2.69 billion at June 30, 2014, from $2.70 billion at December 31, 2013 as a result of the Company's repurchase of common stock. The decrease was primarily attributable to decreased securities available-for-sale of $79.8 million and cash and cash equivalents of $25.5 million, partially offset by increases in net loans held-for-investment of $84.0 million, bank owned life insurance of $2.0 million, and FHLB stock of $1.7 million.

Total loans held-for-investment, net, increased $84.0 million to $1.57 billion at June 30, 2014, as compared to $1.49 billion at December 31, 2013.

Originated loans held-for-investment, net, totaled $1.45 billion at June 30, 2014, as compared to $1.35 billion at December 31, 2013. The increase was primarily due to an increase in multifamily real estate loans of $62.9 million, or 7.2%, to $933.8 million at June 30, 2014, from $871.0 million at December 31, 2013. In the current economic environment, management is primarily focused on originating multifamily real estate and home equity loans, with less emphasis on other loan types. The following table details our multifamily real estate originations for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 (dollars in thousands):

Purchased credit-impaired (PCI) loans, primarily acquired as part of a transaction with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, totaled $49.5 million at June 30, 2014, as compared to $59.5 million at December 31, 2013. The Company accreted interest income of $2.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

The Company's securities available-for-sale portfolio totaled $857.3 million at June 30, 2014, compared to $937.1 million at December 31, 2013. At June 30, 2014, $778.6 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 and an estimated fair value of $1.7 million at June 30, 2014.  In addition to the above mortgage-backed securities, the Company held $76.4 million in corporate bonds which were all rated investment grade at June 30, 2014, and $647,000 of equity investments in money market mutual funds.

Interest-bearing deposits in other financial institutions totaled $24.0 million at June 30, 2014, as compared to $45.9 million at December 31, 2013.  

Total liabilities increased $54.4 million, or 2.7%, to $2.04 billion at June 30, 2014, from $1.99 billion at December 31, 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to increased borrowings of $39.0 million, securities sold under agreements to repurchase of $25.0 million, and advancements by borrowers for taxes and insurance of $1.4 million, partially offset by decreased deposits of $11.7 million.

Deposits decreased $11.7 million to $1.48 billion at June 30, 2014, as compared to $1.49 billion at December 31, 2013. The decrease was attributable to decreases of $22.6 million in certificates of deposit accounts and $2.5 million in transaction accounts, partially offset by increases of $13.7 million in money market demand accounts. The decline in deposits resulted, in part, from the Company's decision not to compete for higher cost time deposits during the period. 

Borrowings and securities sold under agreements to repurchase increased by $64.0 million, or 13.6%, to $534.3 million at June 30, 2014, from $470.3 million at December 31, 2013. 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 overnight borrowings) and the weighted average rate by year (dollars in thousands): 

Year Amount Weighted Avg. Rate
2014  $ 113,668 1.17%
2015 127,363 2.39%
2016 108,910 2.18%

2018 87,715 1.67%
2019 13,502 1.88%
   $ 531,161 1.81%

Total stockholders' equity decreased by $67.3 million to $648.8 million at June 30, 2014, from $716.1 million at December 31, 2013. This decrease was primarily attributable to stock repurchases of $75.1 million and dividend payments of $6.6 million. These decreases were partially offset by net income of $10.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, and a decrease of $2.9 million in accumulated other comprehensive loss as a result of a decrease in the interest rate environment from December 31, 2013.

The Company also holds loans subject to restructuring agreements that are on accrual status, totaling $24.3 million and $26.2 million at June 30, 2014, and December 31, 2013, respectively. At June 30, 2014, loans totaling $1.3 million, or 5.4% of the $24.3 million were not performing in accordance with the restructured terms, as compared to $3.6 million, or 13.7% of $26.2 million at December 31, 2013. These loans were less than 90 days delinquent at June 30, 2014.  

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 $573,000 to $605,000 at June 30, 2014, from $32,000 at December 31, 2013. The increase primarily relates to several residential loans that are considered well secured and in the process of collection.

Other real estate owned was $640,000 and $634,000 at June 30, 2014, and December 31, 2013, respectively.

Accruing Loans 30 to 89 Days Delinquent

Loans 30 to 89 days delinquent and on accrual status totaled $13.3 million at June 30, 2014, and December 31, 2013. The following table sets forth delinquencies for accruing loans by type and by amount at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 (dollars in thousands).

At June 30, 2014, based on recorded contractual principal, 4.2% of PCI loans were past due 30 to 89 days, and 22.7% were past due 90 days or more, as compared to 6.6% and 14.9%, respectively, at December 31, 2013. The increase in the percentage of delinquencies resulted primarily from declining PCI principal balances of $9.9 million to $49.5 million at June 30, 2014, from December 31, 2013.

Results of Operations

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2014 and 2013

Net income was $5.4 million and $4.3 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2014, and 2013, respectively. Significant variances from the comparable prior year period are as follows: a $235,000 decrease in net interest income, a $563,000 decrease in the provision for loan losses, a $689,000 increase in non-interest income, a $511,000 decrease in non-interest expense, and a $387,000 increase in income tax expense.

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, decreased $235,000, or 1.3%, due primarily to a decrease in average interest-earning assets of $63.3 million partially offset by a four basis point increase in our net interest margin to 2.98%. The 2014 second quarter included loan prepayment income of $199,000, as compared to $292,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. The cost on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 13 basis points to 0.83% for the current quarter, as compared to 0.96% for the prior year period. Additionally, yields earned on interest-earning assets decreased four basis points to 3.56% for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, as compared to 3.60% for the comparable quarter in 2013.

The provision for loan losses decreased $563,000 to $(146,000) for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, from $417,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. The decrease in the provision for loan losses resulted primarily from improved results from the Company's PCI portfolio, resulting in the reversal of previously recorded impairment and continued improvements in asset quality indicators. Originated loans grew approximately $63.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $86.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Net charge-offs were $158,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to net recoveries of $87,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. 

Non-interest income increased $689,000, or 40.6%, to $2.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, from $1.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. This increase was primarily a result of a $257,000 increase in fees and service charges for customer services, an increase of $160,000 in income earned on bank owned life insurance, and no other-than-temporary impairment losses recognized on securities. Securities gains in the second quarter of 2014 included $175,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio, while the second quarter of 2013 included securities gains of $63,000 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 decreased $511,000, or 3.9%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013. This is due primarily to a $179,000 decrease in other expenses, a $177,000 decrease in occupancy expense, a $64,000 decrease in compensation and employee benefits which is related to the reduction of staff as a result of the Flatbush Federal Savings & Loan Association merger (the Merger), a decrease in stock compensation expense of $321,000, and the mark-to-market adjustment related to the Company's deferred compensation plan which is described above. 

In June 2014, the Company granted to directors and employees a total of 998,200 restricted shares, and 2,496,600 stock options to purchase Company stock. The granting of stock options and restricted awards vest annually over a 5 year period and will increase non-interest expense by $1.1 million a quarter.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $2.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, was 34.9%, as compared to 37.0% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2014, and 2013

Net income was $10.7 million and $9.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, and June 30, 2013, respectively. Significant variances from the comparable period are as follows: a $115,000 increase in net interest income, a $423,000 decrease in the provision for loan losses, a $395,000 decrease in non-interest income, a $2.8 million decrease in non-interest expense, and a $1.4 million increase in income tax expense.

Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2014, increased $115,000 as our net interest margin increased by 11 basis points to 3.04% partially offset by interest-earning assets decreasing by $88.5 million. The June 30, 2014 period included loan prepayment income of $734,000 compared to $782,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The six months ended June 30, 2014, also included a recovery of $246,000 of interest income that was previously charged-off related to a loan payoff. The cost on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 14 basis points to 0.84% for the current six months as compared to 0.98% for the prior year period. Yields earned on interest-earning assets increased one basis point to 3.63% for the six months ended June 30, 2014 from 3.62% at June 30, 2013.  

The provision for loan losses decreased $423,000, or 61.0%, to $271,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013. This is primarily was a result of the Company's PCI portfolio, resulting in the reversal of previously recorded impairment, continued improvement in asset quality indicators, and to a lesser extent, loan growth of $96.0 million compared to $106.2 million, respectively.

Non-interest income decreased $395,000, or 8.0%, to $4.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, from $5.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Significant variances from the prior period were a $1.8 million decrease in gain on securities transactions, net, partially offset by an increase of $575,000 in fees and service charges and an increase of $379,000 in bank owned life insurance income.  Securities gains in 2014, included $244,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio described above, while the comparable period of 2013 included securities gains of $306,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio.

Non-interest expense decreased $2.8 million, or 10.2%, for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013. This was due primarily to a $1.7 million decrease in compensation and employee benefits related to the benefit recorded on the settlement of a pension plan acquired in the Merger, a decrease in stock compensation expense of $642,000, and the mark-to-market adjustment related to the Company's deferred compensation plan which is described above, a $583,000 decrease in data processing costs due to conversion costs related to the Merger, and a $262,000 decrease in professional fees related primarily to the Merger.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $6.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $5.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was 37.9% as a result of the deferred tax asset write-down of $570,000 related to the New York State tax law change enacted on March 31, 2014, as compared to 36.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The tax reform lowered future marginal tax rates and changed apportionment factors, resulting in a reduction of the Company's net deferred tax assets.  

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2014 and March 31, 2014

Net income was $5.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, and $5.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. Significant variances from the prior quarter are as follows: a $595,000 decrease in net interest income, a $563,000 decrease in provision for loan losses, a $215,000 increase in non-interest income, a $635,000 increase in non-interest expense, and a $673,000 decrease in income tax expense.

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, decreased $595,000, or 3.1%, due primarily to a 12 basis point decrease in our net interest margin to 2.98% and a decrease in average interest-earning assets of $5.4 million. The 2014 second quarter included loan prepayment income of $199,000, as compared to $535,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The three months ended March 31, 2014, also included a recovery of $246,000 of interest income that was previously charged-off related to a loan payoff. The cost on interest-bearing liabilities decreased two basis points to 0.83% for the current quarter, as compared to 0.85% for the prior year period. Additionally, yields earned on interest-earning assets decreased 13 basis points to 3.56% for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, as compared to 3.69% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

The provision for loan losses decreased $563,000 to $(146,000) for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, from $417,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in the provision for loan losses resulted primarily from improved results from the Company's PCI portfolio, resulting in the reversal of previously recorded impairment and the continued improvement of asset quality indicators, partially offset by loan growth.   

Non-interest income increased $215,000, or 9.9%, to $2.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, from $2.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.  This increase was primarily a result of a $195,000 increase in gains on securities transactions, net, and an increase in other non-interest income of $19,000. Securities gains in the second quarter of 2014 included $175,000 related to the Company's trading portfolio, while March 31, 2014 included securities gains of $69,000 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 $635,000 or 5.3%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2014.  This was due primarily to a $1.3 million increase in compensation and employee benefits related to the benefit recorded on the settlement of a pension plan acquired in the Merger during the first quarter of 2014 and the mark-to-market adjustment related to the Company's deferred compensation plan which is described above. The increases were partially offset by a $340,000 decrease in occupancy expense and a $505,000 decrease in other expenses as the Company recorded additional other real estate owned expenses and costs related to the termination of the Flatbush pension plan during the first quarter of 2014. 

The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $3.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, was 34.9%, as compared to 40.7% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, as a result of the deferred tax asset write-down of $570,000 related to the New York State tax law change enacted on March 31, 2014. The tax reform lowered future marginal tax rates and changed apportionment factors, resulting in a reduction of the Company's net deferred tax assets.
