Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Results

LONG ISLAND, N.Y., Oct. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (NASDAQ:LOAN) announced today that total revenue for the three month period ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $1,169,000 compared to approximately $1,032,000 for the three month period ended September 30, 2015, an increase of $137,000, or 13.3%. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations. For the three month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, approximately $960,000 and $871,000, respectively, of our revenues were attributable to interest income on the secured commercial loans that we offer to small businesses, and approximately $209,000 and $160,000, respectively, of our revenues were attributable to origination fees on such loans.

Net income for the three month period ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $725,000 or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, versus net income of approximately $639,000 or $0.09 per basic and diluted share for the three month period ended September 30, 2015, an increase of $86,000 or 13.5%. This increase in net income was mainly due to an increase in operating income as a result of increased lending activity.

Total revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $3,440,000 compared to approximately $2,855,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2015, an increase of $585,000, or 20.5%. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations. For the nine month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, revenues of approximately $2,849,000 and $2,392,000, respectively, were attributable to interest income on the secured commercial loans that we offer to small businesses, and approximately $591,000 and $463,000, respectively, were attributable to origination fees on such loans.

Net income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $2,130,000 or $0.29 per basic and diluted share, versus net income of approximately $1,645,000 or $0.25 per basic and diluted share for the same period in 2015, an increase of $485,000 or 29.5%. This increase in net income was mainly due to an increase in operating income as a result of increased lending activity.

As of September 30, 2016 total shareholders' equity was approximately $23,125,000 compared to approximately $18,638,000 as of June 30, 2016 and approximately $17,743,000 as of December 31, 2015.

On August 15, 2016, we completed another public offering of 672,269 common shares. In addition, the underwriter fully exercised its over-allotment option for an additional 100,840 common shares. The gross proceeds from the offering, including the exercise of the over-allotment option, were approximately $4.6 million and the net proceeds were approximately $4.2 million, after deducting our underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses.

Assaf Ran, Chairman of the Board and CEO stated, “I am pleased with the results that we have reported for the quarter. In light of what I believe is presently a relatively risky and unstable real estate market climate, our challenge, more than ever, is to cherry-pick the safest lending opportunities. We have successfully achieved another record quarter on both revenue and net earnings while continuing our no-default track record.”
