AVENEL, N.J., July 27, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northfield Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:NFBK), the holding company for Northfield Bank, reported basic and diluted earnings per common share of $0.11 and $0.23 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively as compared to $0.10 and $0.18 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively.


"Northfield is pleased to report continued strong financial results. In addition to excellent earnings, we finished the quarter with strong capital, and strong liquidity," said Chairman and CEO, John Alexander. "The demand for loans has been good with total loans increasing nine percent for the first six months of this year. Credit quality continues to improve as approximately 50% of our nonperforming loans are performing in accordance with either original or restructured terms. We continue to experience low loan charge-offs which reflects the strong underwriting and collateral support in our portfolio, and loans that are accruing but are 30-89 days delinquent continue to decline. These signs are encouraging particularly in an economic environment where unemployment remains high, the local economy remains sluggish, and the world economy is in turmoil."




Mr. Alexander continued, "In addition to strong core earnings, during the quarter we again reported substantial gains on securities transactions resulting from the disposition of securities to fund loan growth, from disposing of small balance securities to improve execution, or from taking advantage of pricing opportunities in the market."



"We also have worked aggressively to expand our deposit base and the footprint of our franchise. Year to date our deposits have increased over five percent. We now have 21 branches in our retail network following the opening of our newest Brooklyn branch in early June. Our expansion continues with three branches in development in Brooklyn, one in Staten Island, and two in New Jersey."



Mr. Alexander continued, "I am pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per common share, payable on August 24, 2011, to stockholders of record as of August 10, 2011."



Financial Condition



Total assets increased $60.4 million, or 2.7%, to $2.3 billion at June 30, 2011, from $2.2 billion at December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to increases in loans held for investment, net, of $75.0 million, or 9.1%, and interest-bearing deposits in other financial institutions of $18.2 million, or 53.5%. These increases were partially offset by decreases in securities available for sale, held to maturity securities, loans held for sale, Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, stock, and accrued interest receivable.



Loans held for investment, net, totaled $902.6 million at June 30, 2011, as compared to $827.6 million at December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily in multi-family real estate loans, which increased $74.5 million, or 26.3%, to $358.1 million at June 30, 2011, from $283.6 million at December 31, 2010. Insurance premium loans increased $14.5 million, or 32.6%, to $59.0 million, and home equity loans increased $2.1 million, or 7.4%, to $30.2 million at June 30, 2011. These increases were partially offset by decreases in commercial real estate, one-to-four family residential, land and construction, and commercial and industrial loans. Currently, management is focused on originating multi-family loans, with less emphasis on other loan types.



The Company's securities portfolio totaled $1.2 billion at June 30, 2011, compared to $1.3 billion at December 31, 2010. At June 30, 2011, $1.1 billion 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 $48.3 million and an estimated fair value of $49.8 million at June 30, 2011. These private label securities were in a net unrealized gain position of $1.5 million at June 30, 2011, consisting of gross unrealized gains of $2.3 million and gross unrealized losses of $759,000. In addition to the above mortgage-backed securities, the Company held $104.5 million in securities issued by corporate entities which were all rated investment grade at June 30, 2011, and $9.2 million of equity investments in mutual funds, which focus on investments that qualify under the Community Reinvestment Act and money market mutual funds.



Of the $48.3 million of private label securities, two securities with an estimated fair value of $9.0 million (amortized cost of $9.8 million) were rated less than investment grade at June 30, 2011. One of the two securities was rated CC and the other security was rated Caa2. The ratings of the securities detailed above represent the lowest rating for each security received from the rating agencies of Moody's, Standard & Poor's, and Fitch. The Company continues to receive principal and interest payments in accordance with the contractual terms of these securities. Management has evaluated, among other things, delinquency status, location of collateral, estimated prepayment speeds, and the estimated default rates and loss severity in liquidating the underlying collateral for the securities rated rate below investment grade at June 30, 2011. As a result of management's evaluation of these securities, the Company recognized other-than-temporary impairment of $991,000 on the securities rated below investment grade for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Since management does not have the intent to sell the security, and believes it is more likely than not that the Company will not be required to sell the security, before its anticipated recovery, the credit component of $248,000 was recognized in earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, and the non-credit component of $743,000 was recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax. All other losses within the Company's investment portfolio were deemed to be temporary at June 30, 2011, and as such, were recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax.



During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company recognized an other-than-temporary impairment charge on an equity investment in a mutual fund. The investment had been in a continuous loss position for approximately ten months, and as a result of management's evaluation of this security, the Company believed that the unrealized loss of $161,000 was other-than-temporary, and as such, recognized this charge in earnings during the three months ended March 31, 2011. There was no further impairment during the three months ended June 30, 2011. 



Interest-bearing deposits in other financial institutions totaled $52.2 million at June 30, 2011, as compared to $34.0 million at December 31, 2010. The Company routinely maintains liquid assets in interest-bearing accounts in other well-capitalized financial institutions.



Total liabilities increased $59.0 million from December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in deposits of $75.7 million, or 5.5%, and an increase in borrowings of $53.3 million, or 13.6%, partially offset by a decrease of $70.7 million in amounts due to securities brokers for securities purchased but not settled at period end.



The increase in deposits for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was due in part to an increase of certificates of deposit (issued by the Bank) of $92.7 million, or 19.1% as compared to December 31, 2010. In addition, transaction accounts increased $18.5 million, or 9.9%, from December 31, 2010 to June 30, 2011. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $5.2 million in total savings deposits, and a decrease of $30.2 million in short-term certificates of deposit originated through the CDARS® Network. Deposits originated through the CDARS® Network totaled $38.2 million at June 30, 2011, and $68.4 million at December 31, 2010. The Company utilizes the CDARS® Network as a cost effective alternative to other short-term funding sources. The increase in borrowings was primarily the result of the Company taking advantage of the current lower interest rate market to reduce interest rate risk, partially offset by maturities during the six months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in due to securities brokers was the result of their not being any security purchases occurring prior to June 30, 2011, and settling after quarter end, as compared to $70.7 million at December 31, 2010.



Total stockholders' equity increased by $1.5 million to $398.2 million at June 30, 2011, from $396.7 million at December 31, 2010. The increase was primarily due to net income of $9.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, and an increase of $1.8 million in additional paid-in capital primarily related to the recognition of compensation expense associated with equity awards, and an increase in accumulated other comprehensive income of $4.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. These increases were partially offset by $12.8 million in stock repurchases and the payment of approximately $1.8 million in cash dividends. 



Northfield Bank's (the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary) Tier 1 (core) capital ratio was approximately 13.57%, June 30, 2011. The Bank's total risk-based capital ratio was approximately 27.51% at the same date. These ratios continue to significantly exceed the required regulatory capital ratios necessary to be considered "well capitalized" under current federal capital regulations. Northfield Bancorp, Inc.'s consolidated average total equity as a percentage of average total assets was 17.35% for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to 19.11% for the six months ended June 30, 2010.    



Asset Quality



Nonperforming loans totaled $58.0 million (6.4% of total loans) as compared to $56.7 million (6.6% of total loans) at March 31, 2011, $60.9 million (7.4% of total loans) at December 31, 2010, $55.4 million (6.9% of total loans) at September 30, 2010, and $51.5 million (6.7% of total loans) at June 30, 2010. The following table also shows, for the same dates, troubled debt restructurings on which interest is accruing, and accruing loans delinquent 30 to 89 days (dollars in thousands).

Total Non-Accruing Loans



Total non-accruing loans decreased $3.3 million, to $56.0 million at June 30, 2011, from $59.3 million at December 31, 2010. This decrease was primarily attributable to the following loan types being returned to accrual status during the six months ended June 30, 2011: $1.8 million of multifamily loans, $942,000 of commercial real estate loans, and $332,000 of one-to-four family residential loans. Loans returned to accrual status were current as to principal and interest, and factors indicating doubtful collection no longer existed, including the borrower's performance under the original loan terms for at least six months. Non-accrual loans also decreased as a result of a $612,000 of pay-offs, the transfer of a $376,000 commercial real estate loan to other real estate owned, an additional $1.4 million of charge-offs being recorded on existing and new non-accrual loans, and principal pay-downs of approximately $2.6 million. The above decreases in non-accruing loans during the six months ended June 30, 2011, were partially offset by the following loan types being placed on non-accrual status during the six months ended June 30, 2011: $1.9 million of commercial real estate loans, $676,000 of commercial and industrial loans, $405,000 of construction and land loans, home equity loans of $155,000, and $1.7 million of one-to-four family loans. 



Delinquency Status of Total Non-accruing Loans



Generally, loans are placed on non-accrual status when they become 90 days or more delinquent, and remain on non-accrual status until they are brought current, have a minimum of six months of performance under the loan terms, and factors indicating reasonable doubt about the timely collection of payments no longer exist. Therefore, loans may be current in accordance with their loan terms, or may be less than 90 days delinquent, and still be in a non-accruing status.

Results of Operations



Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2011 and 2010



Net income increased $161,000, or 3.9%, to $4.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $4.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, due primarily to an increase of $324,000 in non-interest income, and a $1.0 million decrease in the provision for loan losses, partially offset by a decrease in net interest income of $88,000 and an increase of $1.1 million in non-interest expense. 



Net interest income decreased $88,000, or 0.6%, as interest-earning assets increased by 10.7% to $2.2 billion, and the net interest margin decreased 10.2%, to 2.90%. The general decline in interest rates has resulted in yields earned on interest earning assets declining 35 basis points to 4.12% for the current quarter as compared to 4.47% for the prior year comparable period, while rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 9 basis points to 1.47% for the current quarter as compared to 1.56% for the prior year comparable period. The increase in average interest earning assets was due primarily to increases in average loans outstanding of $119.1 million and $239.6 million in mortgage-backed securities, partially offset by decreases in other securities and interest-earning assets in other financial institutions. Other securities consist primarily of investment-grade shorter-term corporate bonds, and government-sponsored enterprise bonds.



Non-interest income increased $324,000, or 17.4%, to $2.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. This increase was primarily a result of a $101,000 increase in gains on security sales, with $886,000 in gains on security sales for the current year quarter as compared to $785,000 for the comparable quarter in 2010, a $114,000 increase in fees and service charges for customer services, a $208,000 decrease in trading losses on securities maintained in the Company's deferred compensation plan, and a $232,000 increase of income earned on bank owned life insurance, generated by increased cash surrender values, primarily resulting from higher levels of bank owned life insurance. The Company routinely sells securities when market pricing presents, in management's assessment, an economic benefit that outweighs holding such securities, and when smaller balance securities become cost prohibitive to carry. These increases were partially offset by a $248,000 other-than-temporary credit impairment charge recognized on two private label mortgage-backed securities, and a decrease of $83,000 in other income.



Non-interest expense increased $1.1 million, or 13.3%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2010, due primarily to compensation and employee benefits expense increasing $840,000 which resulted primarily from increases in employees related to additional branch and operations personnel, and to a lesser extent, salary adjustments effective January 1, 2011. Occupancy expense increased $142,000, or 12.0%, over the same time period, primarily due to increases in rent and amortization of leasehold improvements relating to new branches and the renovation of existing branches. Professional fees increased $153,000, over the same time period, primarily due to increased costs related to loan workouts.



The provision for loan losses was $1.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011; a decrease of $1.0 million, or 37.5%, from the $2.8 million provision recorded in the quarter ended June 30, 2010. The decrease in the provision for loan losses in the current quarter was due primarily to a shift in the composition of our loan portfolio to multi-family loans, which generally require lower general reserves than other commercial real estate loans, and decreased levels of delinquencies. During the quarter ended June 30, 2011, the Company recorded net charge-offs of $245,000 compared to net charge-offs of $822,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.



The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.3 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2011, and 2010. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, was 35.0%, as compared to 35.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily a result of an increase in bank owned life insurance income.



Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2011 and 2010



Net income increased $1.8 million, or 23.1%, to $9.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $7.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010, due primarily to an increase of $1.7 million in non-interest income, an increase in net interest income of $1.1 million, and a $1.6 million decrease in the provision for loan losses, partially offset by an increase of $2.0 million in non-interest expense, and an increase of $746,000 in income tax expense. 



Net interest income increased $1.1 million, or 3.7%, as interest-earning assets increased by 9.8% to $2.2 billion, and the net interest margin decreased 5.7%, to 2.96%. The general decline in interest rates has resulted in yields earned on interest earning assets declining 26 basis points to 4.17% for the current six-months as compared to 4.43% for the prior year comparable period, while rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 16 basis points to 1.47% for the current six months as compared to 1.63% for the prior year comparable period. The increase in average interest earning assets was due primarily to increases in average loans outstanding of $113.1 million and $200.6 million in mortgage-backed securities, partially offset by decreases in other securities and interest-earning assets in other financial institutions. Other securities consist primarily of investment-grade shorter-term corporate bonds, and government-sponsored enterprise bonds.



Non-interest income increased $1.7 million, or 47.7%, to $5.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $3.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. This increase was primarily a result of a $1.5 million increase in gains on security sales, with $2.5 million in gains on security sales for the current six months as compared to $1.1 million for the comparable six months in 2010, a $148,000 increase in fees and service charges for customer services, and a $550,000 increase of income earned on bank owned life insurance, generated by increased cash surrender values, primarily resulting from higher levels of bank owned life insurance. The Company routinely sells securities when market pricing presents, in management's assessment, an economic benefit that outweighs holding such securities, and when smaller balance securities become cost prohibitive to carry. These increases were partially offset by a $409,000 other-than-temporary credit impairment charge recognized on two private label mortgage backed securities and a equity mutual fund and a decrease of $78,000 in other income.



Non-interest expense increased $2.0 million, or 11.1%, for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2010, due primarily to compensation and employee benefits expense increasing $1.2 million which resulted primarily from increases in employees related to additional branch and operations personnel, and to a lesser extent, salary adjustments effective January 1, 2011. Occupancy expense increased $440,000, or 18.5%, over the same time period, primarily due to increases in rent and amortization of leasehold improvements relating to new branches and the renovation of existing branches. Professional fees increased $214,000, over the same time period, primarily due to increased costs related to loan workouts.



The provision for loan losses was $3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011; a decrease of $1.6 million, or 34.1%, from the $4.7 million provision recorded in the six months ended June 30, 2010. The decrease in the provision for loan losses in the current six months was due primarily to a shift in the composition of our loan portfolio to multi-family loans, which generally require lower general reserves than other commercial real estate loans, and decreased levels of delinquencies. During the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company recorded net charge-offs of $1.4 million compared to net charge-offs of $1.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. 



The Company recorded income tax expense of $4.9 million and $4.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, and 2010, respectively. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2011, was 34.6%, as compared to 35.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily a result of an increase in bank owned life insurance income, partially offset by an increase in taxable income.
