Thursday, 29. October 2020 21:15

PORTLAND, Maine, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northeast Bank (the “Bank”) (NASDAQ: NBN), a Maine-based full-service bank, today reported net income of $7.8 million, or $0.94 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to net income of $4.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.01 per share, payable on November 24, 2020, to shareholders of record as of November 10, 2020.

Discussing results, Rick Wayne, Chief Executive Officer, said, “We began the new fiscal year with a very strong first quarter. We earned $0.94 per diluted common share, a return on average equity of 18.5%, a return on average assets of 2.5% and an efficiency ratio of 46.4%. Our earnings substantially benefitted from our correspondent arrangement with The Loan Source, Inc. (“Loan Source”) and ACAP SME, LLC ("ACAP"). For the quarter, we recognized $4.7 million of correspondent fee income in connection with $3.4 billion of Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans purchased by Loan Source through September 30, 2020. Subsequent to quarter end, Loan Source purchased an additional $613.8 million of PPP loans for a total of $4.0 billion purchased PPP loans.”

Mr. Wayne continued, “We are also pleased with the performance of loans under deferment. Out of the $136.2 million of three-month principal and interest deferments, only $26.8 million were on deferment at quarter end and all of the $44.7 million of six-month interest-only deferments were current at quarter end.”

As of September 30, 2020, total assets were $1.26 billion, a decrease of $855 thousand, or 0.1%, from total assets of $1.26 billion as of June 30, 2020. The principal components of the changes in the balance sheet follow:

Total$932,110 $971,602 $(39,492) (4.06%)
  
   

Loans generated by the Bank's National Lending Division for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 totaled $45.5 million, which consisted of $4.6 million of purchased loans, at an average price of 78.6% of unpaid principal balance, and $40.9 million of originated loans.

Additionally, the Bank originated $23.1 million of PPP loans in the first quarter. The Bank sold PPP loans with a total principal balance of $53.7 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2020, recording a net gain of $1.1 million on the sales primarily resulting from the recognition of net deferred fees, partially offset by purchase price discounts.

An overview of the Bank’s National Lending portfolio follows:

(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. Short-term investments increased by $59.6 million, or 42.3%, from June 30, 2020, primarily due to a $67.6 million decrease in loans (including loans held for sale).

3. Other assets increased by $4.0 million, or 24.2%, from June 30, 2020, primarily due to a $3.9 million receivable recorded for net servicing income related to the Bank’s correspondent arrangement with Loan Source and ACAP, under which the Bank receives 50% of the net servicing income earned over time on loans purchased by Loan Source.

4. Deposits increased by $5.3 million, or 0.5%, from June 30, 2020, attributable to increases in demand deposits of $39.2 million, or 41.3%, savings and interest-bearing checking accounts of $27.5 million, or 19.9%, and money market accounts of $9.2 million, or 3.1%, partially offset by a decrease in time deposits of $70.5 million, or 14.8%. The primary reason for the net increase in deposits was due to timing of receipt of short-term customer funds which were subsequently withdrawn after the end of the quarter.

5. Shareholders’ equity increased by $7.8 million, or 4.7%, from June 30, 2020, primarily due to net income of $7.8 million.

Net income increased by $3.0 million to $7.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to net income of $4.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

1. Net interest and dividend income before provision for loan losses decreased by $744 thousand to $15.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $15.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The decrease was primarily due to lower rates earned on loans and short-term investments, partially offset by decreased interest expense on deposits.

The following table summarizes interest income and related yields recognized on the loan portfolios:

The components of total income on purchased loans are set forth in the table below entitled “Total Return on Purchased Loans.” When compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019, regularly scheduled interest and accretion for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 increased by $510 thousand due to the increase in average balances and transactional income increased by $46 thousand. The total return on purchased loans for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was 9.1%, a decrease from 9.7% for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The following table details the total return on purchased loans:

 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 periods shown. Total return is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. 

 

2. Provision (credit) for loan losses increased by $513 thousand to $377 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, from a $136 thousand credit in the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The increase in the provision for loan losses reflects increases in certain qualitative factors during the current quarter as a result of continued impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, partially offset by a decrease in loan balances during the quarter. There were no significant changes in qualitative factors during the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

3. Noninterest income increased by $5.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019, primarily due to the following:

  • An increase in correspondent fee income of $4.7 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  
   (In thousands)  
Correspondent Fee$822 
Amortization of Purchased Accrued Interest 279 
Earned Net Servicing Interest 3,646 
Total$4,747 

A summary of PPP loans purchased by Loan Source and related amounts that the Bank will earn over the expected life of the loans is as follows:

 (In thousands) 
Q4 FY 2020 $1,272,900 $2,891 $688 $3,579

Total $3,385,000 $8,239 $3,492 $11,731


(1) - Northeast Bank's share
(2) - Expected to be recognized into income over approximately 2 years
  • An increase in gain on sale of PPP loans of $1.1 million, due to the sale of $53.7 million of PPP loans, which resulted in a net gain based on the recognition of net deferred fees, partially offset by purchase price discounts in the quarter ended September 30, 2020; partially offset by,
  • A $252 thousand decrease in gain on Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loan sales, as no SBA national loans were sold during the current quarter;
  • A $155 thousand increase in losses on real estate owned (“REO”), due to a write-down on an existing REO property during the quarter, as compared to minimal write-downs on REO properties during the quarter ended September 30, 2019;
  • A $135 thousand decrease in bank-owned life insurance income due to a gain from death benefit proceeds recognized in the quarter ended September 30, 2019, as compared to no gain recognized during the current quarter; and
  • A $130 thousand decrease in gain on sale of residential loans held for sale due to lower volume sold as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

4.   Noninterest expense decreased by $421 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019, primarily due to the following:

  • A decrease in other noninterest expense of $408 thousand, primarily due to a $128 thousand recovery on SBA servicing assets in the quarter ended September 30, 2020, as compared to a $74 thousand impairment charge in the quarter ended September 30, 2019, and a $167 thousand decrease in travel and meals and entertainment expense during the current quarter; and
  • A decrease in amortization of intangible assets of $109 thousand as the core deposit intangible became fully amortized during the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

5. Income tax expense increased by $1.4 million to $3.3 million, or an effective tax rate of 29.8%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $1.9 million, or an effective tax rate of 28.7%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The increase was primarily due to higher pre-tax income, which increased by $4.4 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

As of September 30, 2020, nonperforming assets totaled $25.5 million, or 2.03% 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 five National Lending purchased loans totaling $1.1 million that were placed on nonaccrual during the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

As of September 30, 2020, past due loans totaled $18.9 million, or 2.03% 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 thirteen National Lending purchased loans totaling $3.7 million becoming past due during the quarter ended September 30, 2020, partially offset by one National Lending purchased loan totaling $1.0 million that was transferred to REO during the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

As of September 30, 2020, the Bank’s Tier 1 leverage capital ratio was 14.0%, compared to 13.4% at June 30, 2020, and the Total capital ratio was 21.2% at September 30, 2020, compared to 19.6% at June 30, 2020. Capital ratios were primarily affected by increased earnings and decreased assets.

(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.
