KENILWORTH, N.J., Aug. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise Bank NJ (the “Bank”) (OTC:ENBN) recorded second quarter earnings of $468,000, or $0.15 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to earnings of $406,000, or $0.14 per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 – an increase of $62,000, or 15.3%, year over year. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Bank reported a net profit of $927,000 or $0.30 per share compared to $721,000 or $0.25 per share for the same period in 2015 – an increase of $206,000, or 28.6%.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Assets
As of June 30, 2016, total assets were $200.8 million, as compared to $192.8 million, at December 31, 2015 – an increase of $8.0 million or 4.1%.

Don Haake, President and CEO stated, “New business generation has been exceptional the past few years and although we did experience a dip in loan closings in the second quarter, we fully anticipate to see improvement throughout the year as our pipeline remains robust. More importantly, we continue to make new contacts and build new relationships every day. Total loans ended the six months at $184.5 million, up $5.8 million, or 3.3% over year-end. As stated in the past, we do not have anxiety over intermittent slowdowns as we believe our relationship driven, controlled growth strategy will continue to produce the consistent earnings we strive for, while maintaining sound asset quality and stable margins.”

Capital
Stockholders’ equity totaled $26.1 million at June 30, 2016, compared to $25.1 million at December 31, 2015. All of the Bank’s capital ratios are exceptionally strong and remain well in excess of the current regulatory definition of a “well capitalized” institution. At June 30, 2016, the Bank’s tier one leverage capital ratio was 12.94% and the Bank’s total risk based capital ratio was 16.02%. In addition, the new Common Equity Tier 1 Ratio was 14.78% for the second quarter, which is well in excess of the 4.5% current minimum regulatory threshold and the fully transitioned ratio of 7.0% for the year 2019.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income was $1.9 million for the quarter ending June 30, 2016, compared to $1.7 million for the quarter ending June 30, 2015 – an increase of $156,000, or 9.0%. On a year to date basis, net interest income was $3,775,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $3,338,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2015 – an increase of $387,000 or 10.8%. The Bank’s net interest margin (NIM) for the six months ended June 30, 2016 remained strong at 3.88% compared to 4.15% for the same period in 2015. The decline in the NIM is attributed to higher deposit rates to fund the above average loan growth.

Non-Interest Expense
Total non-interest expense for the quarter ending June 30, 2016 increased $158,000 or 15.4% to $1,185,000 compared to $1,027,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The increase was predominately in the Salaries and Benefits which increased $133,000 or 12.3% primarily due to hiring three new staff related to the opening of the Newark Branch which is now set to occur late in the third quarter and normal increases at year-end. Don Haake, President and CEO said, “Even though we are extremely focused on growing the bank, we remain committed to controlling expenses in the process, as evidenced by our peer leading efficiency ratio of 57.51%.”

Asset Quality
The bank had two non-performing loans totaling $225,000 at June 30, 2016, as compared to $360,000 for the same period last year. One non-performing loan paid-off at year end in the amount of $241,000. Unfortunately, a loan of approximately $116,000 was added in the first quarter due to the death of the borrower. We added this to nonaccrual to be conservative, but the estate of the borrower has been paying interest owed as required. In addition, an OREO property remains on the books for $1.25 million, with a value of $1.45 million based on a current appraisal. We continue to see steady interest in the property, but no formal offers have been presented to date.
