Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

Friday, 23. July 2021 13:05

GREAT NECK, N.Y., July 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (Nasdaq: LOAN) announced today that its total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2021 were approximately $1,713,000 compared to approximately $1,741,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2020, a decrease of $28,000, or 1.6%. The decrease in revenues was primarily attributable to lower interest rates charged on loans due to market conditions and intense competition from other lenders. For the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, approximately $1,424,000 and $1,490,000, respectively, of our revenues were attributable to interest income on secured commercial loans that we offer to real estate investors, and approximately $290,000 and $251,000, respectively, of our revenues were attributable to origination fees on such loans. The loans are principally secured by collateral consisting of real estate and accompanied by personal guarantees from the principals of the borrowers.

Net income for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $1,058,000, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 9.62 million weighted-average outstanding common shares), as compared to approximately $1,097,000, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 9.63 million weighted-average outstanding common shares), for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The decrease is primarily attributable to the decrease in interest income resulting from the lower interest rates charged on loans.

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2021 were approximately $3,443,000 compared to approximately $3,452,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, a decrease of $9,000. The decrease in revenues was primarily attributable to lower interest rates charged on loans due to market conditions and intense competition from other lenders, offset by an increase in origination fees. For the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, revenues of approximately $2,867,000 and $2,964,000, respectively, were attributable to interest income on secured commercial loans that we offer to real estate investors, and approximately $576,000 and $488,000, respectively, were attributable to origination fees on such loans.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $2,164,000, or $0.22 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 9.62 million weighted-average outstanding common shares), as compared to approximately $2,113,000, or $0.22 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 9.64 million weighted-average outstanding common shares), for the six months ended June 30, 2020. This increase is primarily attributable to the decrease in interest expense.

As of June 30, 2021, total stockholders' equity was approximately $33,077,000.

As previously announced, on July 9, 2021, we completed an underwritten public offering of 1,875,000 of our common shares at a public offering price of $7.20 per share. The gross proceeds raised by us in the offering were $13,500,000 before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other estimated offering expenses. The total net proceeds from the offering of approximately $12,354,000 were used to reduce the outstanding balance of our existing credit line. We granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 281,250 of our common shares to cover over-allotments, if any.

Assaf Ran, Chairman of the Board and CEO, stated, “I believe that the recent follow-on stock offering was beneficial to the Company. The transaction will give us the opportunity to support our growth as the economy recovers, and it will increase our book value. In addition, once again, we demonstrated an offering at a price higher than the price of our previous offering. Revenue and earnings of the second quarter were affected by lower interest rates and a large amount of paid-off loans. Nevertheless, I'm pleased to present another quarter of no defaults.”

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as “plan,” “project,” “potential,” “seek,” “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “estimate,” or “continue” are intended to identify forward-looking statements. For example, when we discuss our belief that our stock offering will support our growth as the economy recovers and that it will increase our book value, we are using forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned that certain important factors may affect the Company’s actual results and could cause such results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements that may be made in this news release. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those projected, expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including but not limited to the following: (i) our loan origination activities, revenues and profits are limited by available funds; (ii) we operate in a highly competitive market and competition may limit our ability to originate loans with favorable interest rates; (iii) our Chief Executive Officer is critical to our business and our future success may depend on our ability to retain him; (iv) if we overestimate the yields on our loans or incorrectly value the collateral securing the loan, we may experience losses; (v) we may be subject to “lender liability” claims; (vi) our due diligence may not uncover all of a borrower’s liabilities or other risks to its business; (vii) borrower concentration could lead to significant losses; (viii) we may choose to make distributions in our own stock, in which case you may be required to pay income taxes in excess of the cash dividends you receive and (ix) if the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business is greater than anticipated. The risk factors contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission identify important factors that could cause such differences. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release, and we caution potential investors not to place undue reliance on such statements.
