Northeast Bancorp Reports Record Quarterly Results and Declares Dividend

LEWISTON, Maine, July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northeast Bancorp (“Northeast” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NBN), a Maine-based full-service financial services company and parent of Northeast Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $4.0 million, or $0.45 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to net income of $2.2 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. Net income for the year ended June 30, 2017 was $12.3 million, or $1.38 per diluted common share, compared to $7.6 million, or $0.80 per diluted common share, for the year ended June 30, 2016.

The Board of Directors has also declared a cash dividend of $0.01 per share, payable on August 25, 2017 to shareholders of record as of August 11, 2017.

“We closed the year with a strong quarter,” said Richard Wayne, President and Chief Executive Officer. “For the quarter, our earnings of $0.45 per diluted common share helped us achieve a return on equity of 13.3%, a return on assets of 1.6% and an efficiency ratio of 56.3%. These solid results were driven by continued growth in our LASG portfolio, purchased loan total return of 13.8%, and SBA gains on sale of $1.9 million. In addition to earnings growth, in the fourth quarter we generated loan volume of $152.2 million, which included $113.0 million of loans produced by the Loan Acquisition and Servicing Group, $19.0 million of loans closed by the SBA division and $20.2 million of residential and commercial community bank loans. The growth of our balance sheet and earnings compliments our growth strategy and positions us well for the future.”

As of June 30, 2017, total assets were $1.1 billion, an increase of $90.7 million, or 9.2%, from total assets of $986.2 million as of June 30, 2016. The principal components of the change in the balance sheet follow:

  1. The Company originated $152.2 million of new loans during the quarter ended June 30, 2017. Loans generated by the Bank’s Loan Acquisition and Servicing Group (“LASG”) totaled $113.0 million, which consisted of $45.1 million of purchased loans, at an average price of 89.8% of unpaid principal balance, and $67.9 million of originated loans. The Bank’s Small Business Administration and United States Department of Agriculture (“SBA”) Division closed $19.0 million of new loans during the quarter, of which $18.4 million were funded. In addition, the Company sold $19.0 million of the guaranteed portion of SBA loans in the secondary market, of which $10.2 million were originated in the current quarter and $8.8 million were originated or purchased in prior quarters. Residential loan production sold in the secondary market totaled $16.5 million for the quarter. The loan portfolio, excluding both loans held for sale and the $48.0 million of secured loans to broker-dealers repaid in the prior quarter, increased by $134.8 million, or 19.5%, compared to June 30, 2016.

As previously discussed in the Company’s SEC filings, the Company made certain commitments to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in connection with the merger of FHB Formation LLC with and into the Company in December 2010. The Company’s loan purchase and commercial real estate loan availability under these conditions follow:

(1) The yield and total return on LASG originated loans includes $385 thousand of fees related to one loan in the quarter ended June 30, 2016.
(2) The total return on purchased loans represents scheduled accretion, accelerated accretion, gains on asset sales, and other noninterest income recorded during the period divided by the average invested balance, which includes loans held for sale, on an annualized basis. The total return does not include the effect of purchased loan charge-offs or recoveries in the quarter.

  1. Deposits increased by $40.4 million, or 4.8%, from March 31, 2017, attributable primarily to growth in non-maturity (demand, savings and interest checking, and money market) accounts, which increased by $24.3 million, or 4.6%, and an increase in time deposits of $16.1 million, or 5.0%. Deposits increased by $89.4 million, or 11.2%, from June 30, 2016 due to growth in non-maturity accounts of $103.5 million, or 23.0%, offset by a decrease in time deposits of $14.1 million, or 4.0%.
  2. Shareholders’ equity increased by $6.2 million from June 30, 2016, primarily due to earnings of $12.3 million, offset by $6.9 million in share repurchases (representing 645,238 shares). Additionally, there was stock-based compensation of $945 thousand, a decrease in accumulated other comprehensive loss of $274 thousand and $357 thousand in dividends paid on common stock.

Net income increased by $1.8 million to $4.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to $2.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

  1. Net interest and dividend income before provision for loan losses increased by $3.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2016. The increase is primarily due to higher transactional income on purchased loans and higher average balances in the total loan portfolio. This increase was partially offset by higher rates and volume in the deposit portfolio and the effect of the issuance of subordinated debt.

The following table summarizes interest income and related yields recognized on the loan portfolios:

The various components of transactional income are set forth in the table below entitled “Total Return on Purchased Loans.” When compared to the three months and year ended June 30, 2016, transactional income increased by $2.0 million and $2.9 million, respectively. The total return on purchased loans for the three months and year ended June 30, 2017 was 13.78% and 12.30%, respectively. The increase over the prior comparable periods was primarily due to higher average balances and transactional income in the three months and year ended June 30, 2017. The following table details the total return on purchased loans:

(1) The total return on purchased loans represents scheduled accretion, accelerated accretion, gains on asset sales, gains on real estate owned and other noninterest income recorded during the period divided by the average invested balance, which includes loans held for sale, on an annualized basis. The total return does not include the effect of purchased loan charge-offs or recoveries in the quarter. Total return is considered a non-GAAP financial measure.

  1. Noninterest income increased by $479 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2016, principally due to the following:
    • An increase in gain on sale of SBA loans of $246 thousand, due to a higher volume sold in the quarter;
    • An increase in fees for other services to customers of $154 thousand, due to higher loan servicing fees on SBA loans sold; and
    • A decrease in loss recognized on real estate owned and other repossessed collateral, net of $96 thousand, due to the sale of real estate owned (“REO”).
    • This net increase in noninterest income was partially offset by a lower gain on sale of residential loans held for sale of $99 thousand, due to a lower volume sold in the quarter.
  2. Noninterest expense decreased by $32 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2016, primarily due to the following:
    • A decrease in other noninterest expense of $264 thousand, primarily due to a decrease in impairment on servicing assets as no impairment was booked in the three months ended June 30, 2017; and
    • A decrease in loan expense of $174 thousand, largely driven by lower expense related to loan acquisition and refinance activity.
    • The decreases in noninterest expense were partially offset by an increase in salaries and employee benefits of $436 thousand, primarily due to higher incentive compensation recognized in the three months ended June 30, 2017.

As of June 30, 2017, nonperforming assets totaled $14.8 million, or 1.37% of total assets, as compared to $9.5 million, or 0.96% of total assets, as of June 30, 2016.

As of June 30, 2017, past due loans totaled $13.4 million, or 1.72% of total loans, as compared to $6.9 million, or 1.00% of total loans as of June 30, 2016.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company’s Tier 1 Leverage Ratio was 12.8%, compared to 13.3% at June 30, 2016, and the Total Capital Ratio was 19.5%, compared to 20.4% at June 30, 2016. The decreases resulted primarily from loan growth and the effect of purchases under the Company’s share repurchase program.
