The Company also reported that its Board of Directors has declared a $0.175 quarterly cash dividend on the Company’s common stock. The record date for the dividend will be February 3, 2017 and the payment date will be February 17, 2017.

Lynch, the Company’s Chairman, President and CEO. “Oritani’s total assets were $1.2 billion after our IPO in January, 2007, and were $2.5 billion after our second step in June, 2010.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Periods Ended December 31, 2016 and 2015

Net Income. Net income decreased $5.0 million to $11.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, from $16.4 million for the corresponding 2015 quarter. Net income decreased $7.0 million to $22.0 million for the six months ended December 31, 2016, from $29.0 million for the corresponding 2015 period. The primary cause of the decrease was profits on the sale of investments in real estate joint ventures, partially offset by fees on the prepayment of FHLB advances, in the 2015 periods.

Total Interest Income. The components of interest income for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, changed as follows:

The Company’s primary strategic business objective remains the organic growth of multifamily and commercial real estate loans. The average balance of the loan portfolio increased $451.5 million, or 16.1%, for the three months ended December 31, 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period. On a linked quarter basis (December 31, 2016 versus September 30, 2016), the annualized growth rates of the portfolio were 14.3% and 21.7%, when measured based on average and period end balances, respectively. Loan originations and purchases totaled $226.0 million and $39.3 million, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2016. This compares to loan originations and purchases of $221.1 million and $37.9 million, respectively, for the comparable 2015 period. Loan growth continues to be impacted by principal payments. Loan principal payments totaled $91.7 million and $113.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

The yield on the loan portfolio decreased 37 basis points for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period. The loan yield in both periods was impacted by prepayment penalties. Prepayment penalties totaled $1.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 versus $1.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. Prepayment penalties boosted annualized loan yield by 15 basis points in the 2016 period versus 22 basis points in the 2015 period. On a linked quarter basis, the yield on the loan portfolio was flat. This result was impacted by prepayment penalties, which totaled $631,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 (versus $1.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016). Absent the impact of the prepayment penalties, the yield on the loan portfolio decreased 6 basis points on a linked quarter basis. The decrease continues a trend of decreased yield on loans and was primarily attributable to the factors discussed in the Company’s Form 10-K as of June 30, 2016 and other public filings. The increase in market rates that began in October 2016 and accelerated in November 2016 has been partially captured in the loan rates associated with the Company’s originations since that time and has begun to partially mitigate the factors causing the yield to decrease.

The average balance of securities available for sale decreased $50.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period, while the average balance of securities held to maturity increased $53.9 million over the same period. The Company has been classifying the majority of new purchases as held to maturity.

The components of interest income for the six months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, changed as follows:

Six Months Ended December 31,Increase / (decrease)

Total interest income$69,3113.85%$66,3224.16%$2,989 $407,835 -0.31%

The explanations for changes described above for the three month period are also applicable to the six month period. Loan originations and purchases for the six months ended December 31, 2016 totaled $378.5 million and $65.8 million, respectively. Loan originations and purchases for the six months ended December 31, 2015 totaled $335.7 million and $37.9 million, respectively. Prepayment penalties totaled $1.8 million for the six months ended December 31, 2016 and $3.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2015. Prepayment penalties boosted annualized loan yield by 11 basis points in the 2016 period versus 23 basis points in the 2015 period.

Total Interest Expense. The components of interest expense for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, changed as follows:

Total interest expense$9,0221.12%$8,0631.16%$959 $449,922-0.04%

Strong deposit growth remains a strategic objective of the Company. As detailed above, the average balance of deposits increased $447.6 million, or 21.2%, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period. The balance of deposits increased $158.4 million and $94.8 million when measured versus the average and period end balances for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, respectively. The overall cost of deposits increased 9 basis points for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period. On a linked quarter basis, the cost of deposits decreased 2 basis points.

As detailed in table above, the average balance of borrowings was relatively stable, increasing $2.4 million, or 0.4%, for the three months ended December 31, 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period, while the cost decreased 34 basis points. On a linked quarter basis, the average balance decreased $2.7 million while the cost increased 3 basis points. Increases in deposit balances have allowed the Company to fund asset growth with minimal impact on the total amount of borrowings. Despite this, there was an uptick in period end borrowing balances at December 31, 2016. Borrowings increased $133.0 million to $800.6 million at December 31, 2016, from $667.6 million at September 30, 2016. The Company realized substantial loan originations and purchases in the month of December, 2016, which necessitated the increase in borrowings.

As discussed in the Company’s Form 10-K as of June 30, 2016 and other public filings, the Company undertook two balance sheet restructures which, amongst other effects, impacted the cost of money market deposits and borrowings.

The components of interest expense for the six months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, changed as follows:

Six Months Ended December 31,Increase / (decrease)

The explanations for changes described above for the three month period regarding deposits are also applicable to the six month period. The impact of the balance sheet restructures is greater in the six month period of measurement.

Net Interest Income Before Provision for Loan Losses. Net interest income increased by $935,000 to $26.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, from $25.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Net interest income increased by $2.1 million to $51.5 million for the six months ended December 31, 2016, from $49.4 million for the six months ended December 31, 2015. These increases were realized despite a decrease in prepayment penalty income of $351,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and $1.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2016. The Company’s net interest income, spread and margin over the period are detailed in the chart below.

* - Prepayment penalties on loans and FHLB advances are excluded.

The Company’s spread and margin have been significantly impacted by prepayment penalties. Due to this situation, the chart above details results with and without the impact of prepayment penalties. While prepayment penalty income is expected to continue, significant fluctuations in the level of prepayment income are also expected.

The Company’s spread and margin remain under pressure due to several factors. These factors were discussed in the Company’s Form 10-K for the annual period ended June 30, 2016, and in other prior public releases. Recent changes in market interest rates will impact the Company’s spread and margin. The increase in the discount rate and federal funds target rate by the Federal Open Market Committee in December, 2016 increased the cost of the Company’s short term borrowings. This increase may also indirectly increase the cost of deposits. Longer term rates have also risen due to market conditions. The spread between short term and long term market interest rates has generally been increasing since October, 2016. The increase in this spread generally augments the Company’s spread and margin through higher loan rates, though its positive impact may be delayed. Despite current spread and margin compression, the Company’s net interest income excluding prepayment penalties has been expanding.

The Company’s net interest income and net interest rate spread were both negatively impacted in all periods due to the reversal of accrued interest income on loans delinquent more than 90 days. The total of such income reversed was $76,000 and $196,000 for the three and six months ended December 31, 2016, respectively, and $123,000 and $299,000 for the three and six months ended December 31, 2015, respectively.

Provision for Loan Losses. The Company recorded no provision for loan losses for the three and six months ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015. A rollforward of the allowance for loan losses for the three and six months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 is presented below:

Delinquency and nonaccrual trends, changes in loan risk ratings, loan growth, charge-offs and economic and business conditions continue to have a meaningful impact on the level of provision for loan losses.

Delinquent loan and non performing asset totals continue to illustrate minimal credit issues at the Company. In addition, of the $10.4 million in loans classified as nonaccrual at December 31, 2016, $6.5 million were fully current.

Other Income. Other income decreased $26.3 million to $1.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, from $27.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. In the 2015 period, the Company sold certain investments in its real estate joint ventures and real estate held for investment portfolios. The pretax gain realized on such dispositions for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was $25.3 million. There was also a gain of $225,000 on the disposition of real estate owned. In addition, there was a gain of $604,000 was realized on the sale of equity securities as well as the sale of investment securities sold in conjunction with the balance sheet restructure in the 2015 period. There were no comparable sales in the 2016 period. See additional information under “Comparison of Financial Condition at December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016,” regarding the sales of investments in real estate joint ventures and real estate held for investment.

Other income decreased $31.0 million to $2.4 million for the six months ended December 31, 2016 from $33.5 million for the six months ended December 31, 2015. The six month period was also impacted by the items described above regarding the sales of investments in real estate joint ventures, real estate held for investment, real estate owned and investment securities.

Other Expenses. Other expenses decreased $15.9 million to $11.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, from $26.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The decrease was primarily due to prepayment fees incurred in connection with the prepayment of various FHLB advances in the 2015 period. See the Company’s Form 10-K as of June 30, 2016 and other public filings for details regarding the Company’s balance sheet restructures. Compensation, payroll taxes and fringe benefits, decreased $1.8 million to $8.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, from $10.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The decrease primarily pertained to the amortization cost associated with the Company’s 2011 Equity Plan. The majority of the stock awards and stock options granted in conjunction with this plan fully amortized in August 2016. The 2016 period includes $74,000 of expense associated with this plan while the 2015 period includes expenses totaling $1.5 million. The balance of the change is primarily due to decreased ESOP related expenses partially offset by increased costs associated with non qualified benefit plans. The Company’s efficiency ratio for the 2016 period was 40.3%.

Other expenses decreased $16.3 million to $21.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2016, from $37.7 million for the six months ended December 31, 2015. The six month period was also affected by the items described above for the three month period. A portion of the 2016 period included the full cost of the amortization of the 2011 Equity Plan. Such expense totaled $849,000 in the 2016 period versus $3.0 million in the 2015 period.

Income Tax Expense. Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $5.0 million on pre-tax income of $16.4 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 30.4%. Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2015 was $9.5 million on pre-tax income of $25.8 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 36.6%. Income tax expense for the six months ended December 31, 2016, was $10.7 million, due to pre-tax income of $32.6 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 32.6%. For the six months ended December 31, 2015, income tax expense was $16.3 million, due to pre-tax income of $45.2 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 35.9%. The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update 2016-09, (an update to Accounting Standards Codification 718 “Compensation—Stock Compensation,”) as of June 30, 2016 and retroactive to July 1, 2015. Under this guidance, the excess tax benefit associated with the exercise or vesting of stock awards is recorded as a reduction in provision for income taxes, and this resulted in reducing the effective tax rates in all reported periods as non qualified stock options were exercised.

Comparison of Financial Condition at December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016

Total Assets. Total assets increased $342.8 million to $4.01 billion at December 31, 2016, from $3.67 billion at June 30, 2016. The annualized asset growth rate for fiscal 2017 was 18.7%.

Cash and Cash Equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents (which include fed funds and short term investments) increased $15.8 million to $32.4 million at December 31, 2016, from $16.6 million at June 30, 2016.

Net Loans. Loans, net increased $251.2 million, or 8.0%, to $3.38 billion at December 31, 2016, from $3.13 billion at June 30, 2016. The annualized growth rate was 16.0%. See “Interest Income” for discussion regarding loans balances.

Securities available for sale. Securities AFS increased $38.3 million to $180.2 million at December 31, 2016, from $141.9 million at June 30, 2016. Although the Company had been classifying the majority of new purchases as held to maturity, the Company has purchased $66.2 million of adjustable rate mortgage backed securities in fiscal 2017 that have been classified as AFS.

Securities held to maturity. Securities HTM increased $33.7 million to $201.8 million at December 31, 2016, from $168.1 million at June 30, 2016.

Investments in Real Estate Joint Ventures, Net and Real Estate Held for Investment. The Company previously announced its intention to investigate the sale of the properties and interests in these portfolios. As of December 31, 2016, all but one such property had been sold and closed. This remaining property is currently under contract for sale. Management will provide additional updates when the sale closes.

Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (“FHLB”) stock. FHLB stock increased $875,000 to $38.9 million at December 31, 2016, from $38.0 million at June 30, 2016. FHLB stock holdings are required depending on several factors, including the level of borrowings with the FHLB.

Stockholders’ Equity. Stockholders’ equity increased $3.3 million to $538.5 million at December 31, 2016, from $535.2 million at June 30, 2016. The increase was primarily due to net income, the net impact of the amortization of stock based compensation plans and a decrease in other comprehensive loss, partially offset by dividends and repurchases. The dividends paid include regular quarterly dividends of $0.175 per share paid on August 19, 2016 and November 18, 2016, as well as a special dividend of $0.50 per share paid on December 23, 2016. During the six months ended December 31, 2016, 98,655 shares of stock were repurchased at a total cost of $1.6 million and an average cost of $15.95 per share. The shares repurchased were shares redeemed by employees, in lieu of payroll taxes due, in conjunction with the vesting of stock awards from the 2011 Equity Plan. Based on our December 31, 2016 closing price of $18.75 per share, the Company stock was trading at 159.7% of book value.
