Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Results

LONG ISLAND, N.Y., July 28, 2016 (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, 2016 was approximately $1,166,000 compared to approximately $912,000 for the three month period ended June 30, 2015, an increase of $254,000, or 27.9%. For the three month period ended June 30, 2016, approximately $974,000 of the Company's revenue represents interest income on the secured, commercial loans that the Company offers to small businesses compared to approximately $764,000 for the same period in 2015, and approximately $192,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to approximately $148,000 for the same period in 2015. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations.

Income from operations for the three month period ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $722,000 compared to approximately $545,000 for the same period ended June 30, 2015, an increase of $177,000 or 32.5%. This increase in income from operations resulted mainly from an increase in revenue, offset by an increase in interest and amortization of debt service costs resulting from the issuance of senior secured notes.

Net income for the three month period ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $710,000 or $0.10 per share, versus net income of approximately $530,000 or $0.08 per share for the three month period ended June 30, 2015, an increase of $180,000 or 34.0%. This increase in net income is mainly due to an increase in income from operations.

Total revenue for the six month period ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $2,270,000 compared to approximately $1,824,000 for the six month period ended June 30, 2015, an increase of $446,000, or 24.5%. For the six month period ended June 30, 2016, approximately $1,888,000 of the Company's revenue represents interest income on the secured, commercial loans that the Company offers to small businesses compared to approximately $1,521,000 for the same period in 2015, and approximately $382,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to approximately $303,000 for the same period in 2015. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations.

Income from operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $1,418,000 compared to approximately $1,021,000 for the same period ended June 30, 2015, an increase of $397,000 or 38.9%. This increase in income from operations resulted mainly from an increase in revenue, offset by an increase in interest and amortization of debt service costs resulting from the establishment and use of the Webster Credit Line, and the issuance of the senior secured notes in order to increase our ability to make loans.

Net income for the six month period ended June 30, 2016 was approximately $1,405,000 or $0.19 per share, versus net income of approximately $1,006,000 or $0.16 per share for the same period in 2015, an increase of $399,000 or 39.7%. This increase in net income is mainly due to an increase in income from operations.

As of June 30, 2016 total shareholders' equity was approximately $18,638,000 compared to approximately $17,743,000 as of December 31, 2015, an increase of $895,000.

On April 25, 2016, MBC Funding II Corp (“Funding”), our wholly owned subsidiary, completed a firm commitment underwritten public offering of 6% senior secured notes due April 22, 2026. We guaranteed Funding’s obligations under the Notes, which are secured by our pledge of 100% of the outstanding common shares of Funding owned by us. The gross proceeds to Funding from this offering were approximately $6.0 million, and the net proceeds were approximately $5.3 million, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses. Funding utilized the proceeds to purchase a pool of mortgage loans from us, which we in turn used to pay down the Webster Credit Line.

Assaf Ran, Chairman of the Board and CEO stated, “Market activity was significantly higher in the first half of the year, and we were well positioned to take advantage of that. As we started to deploy the proceeds from the bond offering that we closed at the end of April, we recorded another record quarter both in revenue and net earnings.”
