Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Results

LONG ISLAND, N.Y., July 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (NASDAQ:LOAN)

Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. announced today that its total revenue for the three month period ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $912,000 compared to approximately $630,000 for the three month period ended June 30, 2014, an increase of $282,000, or 44.8%. For the three month period ended June 30, 2015, approximately $764,000 of the Company's revenue represents interest income on the secured, commercial loans that the Company offers to small businesses compared to approximately $518,000 for the same period in 2014, and approximately $148,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to approximately $112,000 for the same period in 2014. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations.

Income from operations for the three month period ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $545,000 compared to approximately $331,000 for the same period ended June 30, 2014, an increase of $214,000 or 64.7%. This increase in income from operations resulted mainly from an increase in revenue, offset by increases in interest and amortization of debt service costs resulting from the Company's establishment and use of its three-year $14 million Webster Credit Line, and in public relations, payroll and travel expenses.

Net income for the three month period ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $530,000, versus approximately $421,000 for same period in 2014, an increase of $109,000 or 25.9%. This increase in net income is mainly due to an increase in income from operations. Net income per share for the three month period ended June 30, 2015 was $0.08, versus $0.10 for the same period in 2014. This decrease mainly resulted from the Company's sale of equity securities during the second quarter. The Company had only begun to realize the significant benefit from the deployment of the proceeds during the third quarter.

Total revenue for the six month period ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $1,824,000 compared to approximately $1,239,000 for the six month period ended June 30, 2014, an increase of $585,000, or 47.2%. For the six month period ended June 30, 2015, approximately $1,521,000 of the Company's revenue represents interest income on the secured, commercial loans that the Company offers to small businesses compared to approximately $1,025,000 for the same period in 2014, and approximately $303,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to approximately $214,000 for the same period in 2014. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations.

Income from operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $1,021,000 compared to approximately $647,000 for the same period ended June 30, 2014, an increase of $374,000 or 57.8%. This increase in income from operations resulted mainly from an increase in revenue, offset by increases in interest and amortization of debt service costs, and in payroll, public relations and consulting expenses, and a special bonus to officers for establishing a three-year $14 million revolving line of credit with Webster Business Credit Corporation.

Net income for the six month period ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $1,006,000, versus approximately $629,000 for the same period in 2014, an increase of $377,000 or 59.9%. This increase in net income is mainly due to an increase in income from operations. Net income per share for the six month period ended June 30, 2015 was $0.16, versus $0.15 for the same period in 2014.

As of June 30, 2015 total shareholders' equity was approximately $18,184,000 compared to approximately $13,866,000 as of December 31, 2014, an increase of $4,318,000.

The Company completed a public offering of 1,015,000 common shares on May 29, 2015, and the underwriter partially exercised its over-allotment option for an additional 105,000 common shares in June 2015. The gross proceeds from the offering, including the partial exercise of the over-allotment option, were approximately $4.9 million and the net proceeds were approximately $4.3 million, after deducting our underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses.

Assaf Ran, Chairman of the Board and CEO stated, “During the second quarter, we managed to continue growing the Company responsibly and constantly. The successful public offering that was completed at the end of the quarter resulted in an increase in the number of outstanding shares while the Company had only begun to realize the significant benefit from the deployment of the proceeds of the offering during the third quarter. This factor resulted in the decrease in EPS even though net income was significantly higher than the correspond quarter of 2014," added Mr. Ran.
