Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. Reports First Quarter Results - Record Revenue and Net Earnings

GREAT NECK, N.Y., April 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (NASDAQ:LOAN) announced today that total revenue for the three month period ended March 31, 2017 was approximately $1,330,000 compared to approximately $1,105,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $225,000, or 20.4%. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations. In 2017, approximately $1,106,000 of the Company’s revenue represents interest income on secured, commercial loans that it offers to small businesses compared to approximately $914,000 for the same period in 2016, and approximately $223,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to approximately $190,000 for the same period in 2016. The loans are principally secured by collateral consisting of real estate and, generally, accompanied by personal guarantees from the principals of the businesses.

Net income for the three month period ended March 31, 2017 was approximately $791,000, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 8.1 million and 8.2 million weighted-average outstanding common shares, respectively), versus approximately $695,000, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 7.3 million weighted-average outstanding common shares). This increase is primarily attributable to the increase in revenue, offset by an increase in operating expenses.

As of March 31, 2017, total stockholders' equity was approximately $23,108,000 compared to approximately $22,314,000 as of December 31, 2016, an increase of $794,000.

On March 14, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a common stock repurchase allowing the buyback of up to 100,000 shares of the company’s common stock in market or off-market transactions at prevailing prices over the next twelve months. The manner, timing and number of shares purchased will be at the Company’s discretion. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had not yet repurchased any shares.

Assaf Ran, Chairman of the Board and CEO, stated, “As we present another quarter of record high revenue and net earnings, the Company once again demonstrates strength, stability and, most importantly, responsibility. The numbers speak for themselves. As a CEO with unprecedented personal commitment and a major shareholder of the Company, I am proud of our achievements to date, and am determined to achieve continued success,” added Mr. Ran.
