Balance Sheet: December 31, 2020, compared to December 31, 2019

Total assets increased $507.0 million, or 143.0%, to $861.6 million at December 31, 2020, from $354.6 million at December 31, 2019. The growth in total assets was primarily due to increases of $394.0 million in cash and cash equivalents $58.8 million in loans receivable, $45.7 million in loans held for sale, $2.4 million in available-for-sale securities, $2.0 million increase in mortgage servicing right, $1.7 million in operating lease right-of-use asset and $1.7 million in mortgage banking derivatives. In December 2020, the Company experienced an increase in cash as a result of an increase in core deposits from certain accounts which it anticipates to be temporary and that a significant portion will be dispersed during the first quarter of 2021.

Total liabilities increased $501.7 million, or 156.3%, to $822.7 million at December 31, 2020, from $321.0 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in total liabilities was primarily from a $447.0 million increase in deposits, $48.7 million increase in advances from the PPPLF, $4.3 million in other liabilities and $1.9 million increase in operating lease liabilities. Deposits increased $447.0 million from December 31, 2020, to December 31, 2019, primarily as a result of a $453.2 million increase in our core deposits offset by $6.2 million decrease in certificate of deposits. As discussed above, there was an increase in core deposits from certain accounts which we anticipate to be temporary and that a significant portion will be dispersed during the first quarter of 2021. Our core deposits (consisting of demand deposits, money market deposit accounts, passbook and statement savings accounts, and checking accounts) increased $453.2 million, or 210.3%, to $668.7 million at December 31, 2020, from $215.5 million at December 31, 2019. Offsetting this increase, was a decrease of $6.2 million, or 9.1% in certificates of deposit to $62.1 million at December 31, 2020, from $68.3 million at December 31, 2019.

Total shareholders’ equity increased $5.3 million, or 15.8%, to $38.9 million at December 31, 2019, compared to $33.6 million at December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily due to net income of $5.8 million, $256,000 increase in other comprehensive income due to the fair value adjustments, net of deferred tax, on the investment securities available-for-sale portfolio combined with $244,000 increase in share-based compensation expense and ESOP shares committed to be released of $125,000. Offsetting these increases was $1.1 million in treasury stock repurchases primarily as part of the stock repurchase plan approved in April 2019.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2020, we recorded net charge-offs of $15,000 compared to net recoveries of $66,000 received for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. Provision for loan losses increased by $298,000 to $1.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, from $810,000 during the year ended December 31, 2019, primarily because of net charge-offs of $529,000 related to the medical education loans.

The increase in non-interest income of $10.2 million to $16.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, from $6.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, was primarily a $8.4 million increase in the gain on sales of loans, net and a $942,000 increase in change of fair value of loans held-for-sale and an increase in the gain from derivative instruments of $747,000.

Salaries and employee benefits increased as full time equivalent (FTE) employees increased to one-hundred twenty-six as of December 31, 2020, from ninety-seven as of December 31, 2019, primarily as a result of the expansion of the Company’s lending and business banking operations.
