(1) The total return on purchased loans represents scheduled accretion, accelerated accretion, gains on asset sales, gains on real estate owned and other noninterest income recorded during the period divided by the average invested balance, which includes purchased loans held for sale, on an annualized basis. The total return on purchased loans does not include the effect of purchased loan charge-offs or recoveries during the period. Total return on purchased loans is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. See reconciliation in below table entitled “Total Return on Purchased Loans.”

2.  Deposits decreased by $28.4 million, or 2.8%, from June 30, 2020. The decrease was attributable to a decrease in time deposits of $116.6 million, or 24.4% due to intentional runoff. The decrease was partially offset by increases in demand deposits of $33.2 million, or 35.0%, savings and interest checking accounts of $47.6 million, or 34.6%, and money market deposits of $7.3 million, or 2.4%.

3.  Shareholders’ equity increased by $17.2 million, or 10.5%, from June 30, 2020, primarily due to net income of $16.0 million. Shareholders’ equity also increased by $1.0 million as a result of stock options exercised, which resulted in 153 thousand shares of common stock issued.

Net income increased by $3.3 million to $8.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to net income of $4.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

1.  Net interest and dividend income before provision for loan losses decreased by $157 thousand to $15.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to $15.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The decrease was primarily due to lower interest income earned on loans, partially offset by a decrease in deposit interest expense. The decrease in interest income earned on loans was primarily due to lower average balances and rates earned on the National Lending originated, SBA, and Community Bank portfolios, partially offset by higher average balances in the National Lending purchased portfolio. The decrease in deposit interest expense was due to lower rates, partially offset by higher average balances.

The following table details the total return on purchased loans:

(1)   The total return on purchased loans represents scheduled accretion, accelerated accretion, gains on asset sales and gains on real estate owned recorded during the period divided by the average invested balance, which includes purchased loans held for sale, on an annualized basis. The total return does not include the effect of purchased loan charge-offs or recoveries in the quarter. Total return is considered a non-GAAP financial measure.

2.   Noninterest income increased by $5.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2019, principally due to the following:

  • An increase in correspondent fee income of $6.1 million from the recognition of correspondent fees and net servicing income as a result of the correspondent arrangement entered into with Loan Source during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The correspondent arrangement provides for the Bank to earn a correspondent fee when Loan Source purchases PPP loans and the Bank subsequently shares in net servicing income on such purchased PPP loans. Correspondent income for the quarter is comprised of the following components:
 Income Earned

Correspondent Fee$1,061

The increase in correspondent fee income was partially offset by:

  • An increase in loss on real estate owned (“REO”) of $501 thousand, due to a writedown and net loss on sales of REO properties in the quarter ended December 31, 2020, as compared to a gain recorded on the transfer of a loan into REO in the quarter ended December 31, 2019;
  • A decrease in gain on sale of SBA loans of $304 thousand, due to no SBA loans sold in the quarter ended December 31, 2020; and
  • A decrease in gain on sale of residential loans held for sale of $193 thousand, due to lower volume of loans sold as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

3.  Noninterest expense increased by $639 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2019, primarily due to the following:

  • An increase in loan expense of $343 thousand, primarily due to $424 thousand in correspondent expenses associated with the Loan Source arrangement, partially offset by an increase of $120 thousand of collection expense reimbursements received during the quarter ended December 31, 2020;
  • An increase in occupancy and equipment expense of $198 thousand, primarily due to increases in rent expense, depreciation and IT software expense in connection with the relocation of the Lewiston operations center and opening of a new office in New York City; and
  • An increase in FDIC insurance premium expense of $102 thousand, due to credits received during the quarter ended December 31, 2019, which have now run out.

4.  Income tax expense increased by $933 thousand to $2.9 million, or an effective tax rate of 26.3%, for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to $1.9 million, or an effective tax rate of 28.9%, for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The increase in income tax expense is due to the increase in pre-tax income. The decrease in effective tax rate is primarily due to $472 thousand of tax benefits arising from the exercise of stock options during the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

As of December 31, 2020, nonperforming assets totaled $33.4 million, or 2.70% of total assets, as compared to $24.4 million, or 1.94% of total assets, as of June 30, 2020. The increase was primarily due to two National Lending originated loans totaling $8.0 million and two National Lending purchased loans totaling $1.2 million that were placed on nonaccrual during the six months ended December 31, 2020. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, a $6.0 million nonaccrual loan paid off in full.

As of December 31, 2020, past due loans totaled $23.1 million, or 2.31% of total loans, as compared to past due loans totaling $16.4 million, or 1.69% of total loans as of June 30, 2020. The increase was primarily due to one National Lending originated loan totaling $2.0 million and fifteen National Lending purchased loans totaling $4.8 million, becoming past due during the six months ended December 31, 2020.

As of December 31, 2020, the Bank’s Tier 1 leverage capital ratio was 15.1%, compared to 13.4% at June 30, 2020, and the Total capital ratio was 20.4% at December 31, 2020, as compared to 19.6% at June 30, 2020. Capital ratios were affected by earnings during the six months ended December 31, 2020.

(1) The net interest rate spread represents the difference between the weighted-average yield on interest-earning assets and the weighted-average cost of interest-bearing liabilities for the period.
(2) The net interest margin represents net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets for the period.
(3) Net interest margin excluding PPP removes the effects of the following: PPP loan interest income of $80 thousand and $1.6 million and PPPLF interest expense of $2 thousand and $174 thousand for the quarters ended September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively, as well as PPP loan average balances of $16.9 million and $223.8 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively.
(4) The efficiency ratio represents noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income (before the loan loss provision) plus noninterest income.
(5) For purposes of calculating this ratio, commercial real estate includes all non-owner occupied commercial real estate loans defined as such by regulatory guidance, including all land development and construction loans.
(6) Core deposits include all non-maturity deposits and maturity deposits less than $250 thousand. Loans include loans held for sale.
(7) Includes the core deposit intangible asset and loan servicing rights asset.
(8) Tangible book value per share represents total shareholders' equity less the sum of preferred stock and intangible assets divided by common shares outstanding.
(9) Net loans and total loans, including loans held for sale, exclude PPP loans held for sale.
