Enterprise National Bank N.J. Announces Third Quarter 2013 Earnings

KENILWORTH, N.J., Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise National Bank N.J. (the "Bank") (OTCBB:ENBN) reported net income of $230,000, or $0.08 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to $236,000, or $0.08 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Bank recorded net income of $534,000, or $0.19 per share, compared with $578,000, or $0.21 per share for the first nine months of 2012.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

As of September 30, 2013, total assets were $137.6 million as compared to $133.8 million at December 31, 2012. The increase in total assets is attributable to strong loan activity, offset in part by the continued reduction in higher costing liabilities and maturing investment securities. Don Haake, President & CEO, stated "Although total asset growth has been modest, we are very pleased with the $15.2 million or 15% growth of the bank's loan portfolio over the same period. Moreover, our pipeline of approved and prospective business remains strong and we are confident that we can maintain this momentum over the coming months."

Stockholders' equity continues to increase, growing to $19.5 million at September 30, 2013, compared to $18.9 million at December 31, 2012. All of the Bank's capital ratios remain well in excess of the regulatory guidelines to be considered a "well capitalized" institution. To that end, at September 30, 2013, the Bank's tier one leverage capital ratio was 14.36% and the Bank's total risk based capital ratio was 17.09%.

Asset Quality

The Bank had non-performing loans of $1.6 million as of September 30, 2013, as compared to $2.5 million at December 31, 2012 and $3.1 million at September 30, 2012. The non-performing loans consist of one real estate property owned (OREO) with a carrying value of $1.4 million and one troubled debt restructuring loan (TDR) of $200,000. The OREO is a partially tenanted, income producing property and the TDR is currently paying as agreed. Chairman N. Larry Paragano commented: "I am very pleased with the overall performance of the Bank's portfolio and want to commend our staff and management for their efforts in reducing non-performing loans and for their continued efforts in managing and growing a sound portfolio."

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $1.3 million for each of the quarters ending September 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012. The Bank's net interest margin for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 improved to 4.31% compared to 4.11% for the same period in 2012.

Net interest income was $3.8 million for the nine months ending September 30, 2013, as compared to $3.7 million in the nine months ending September 30, 2012. The Bank's net interest margin for the nine months ending September 30, 2013 was 4.20% compared to 3.91% for the same period in 2012.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income was $70,000 in the quarter ending September 30, 2013, as compared to $84,000 in the quarter ending September 30, 2012.

Non-interest income was $141,000 for the nine months ending September 30, 2013, as compared to $251,000 in the nine months ending September 30, 2012. The higher level of non-interest income in the prior year-to-date period was the result of a higher level of loan prepayments and the associated prepayment fees.

Non-Interest Expense

Total non-interest expense for the quarter ending September 30, 2013 was $972,000, representing little change from $965,000 for the quarter ending September 30, 2012. Total non-interest expense for the nine months ending September 30, 2013 was $3.0 million, as compared to $2.9 million in the nine months ending September 30, 2012. Management continues to focus on reducing the Bank's non-interest expense wherever possible.
