Parke Bancorp, Inc. Announces 2017 Third Quarter Earnings

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J., Oct. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Parke Bancorp, Inc. ("Parke Bancorp") (NASDAQ: "PKBK"), the parent company of Parke Bank, announced its operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Parke Bancorp reported net income available to common shareholders of $3.9 million, or $0.50 per common share and $0.42 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. This compares to net income available to common shareholders of $3.6 million, or $0.48 per common share and $0.39 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, an increase in net income of $288,000. Net income available to common shareholders year-to-date was $10.4 million, or $1.37 per common share and $1.15 per diluted common share, compared to $14.2 million, or $1.90 per common share and $1.54 per diluted common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, a decrease in net income of $3.8 million. The 2016 year-to-date period included an approximately $9.3 million pre-tax gain from the sale of our SBA related assets in April of 2016, which included a $7.6 million gain on sale and relief of $1.7 million of related allowance for loan losses.

The following is a recap of significant items that impacted the third quarter of 2017 compared to the same quarter last year: an increase of $2.5 million in interest income, primarily attributable to higher loan volumes, an increase of $450,000 in interest expense due to higher deposit volumes and higher rates paid on deposits; a $200,000 decrease in the provision for loan losses; a $565,000 decrease in noninterest expense, primarily attributable to lower OREO expense; and a $2.4 million increase in income tax expense, as the prior year quarter had included a $1.5 million historic tax credit.

At September 30, 2017, Parke Bancorp's total assets increased to $1.1 billion, from $1.0 billion at December 31, 2016, an increase of $83.2 million or 8.2%.

Parke Bancorp's total investment securities portfolio decreased to $42.5 million at September 30, 2017, from $47.1 million at December 31, 2016, a decrease of $4.6 million or 9.7%.

Parke Bancorp's net loans increased to $953.3 million at September 30, 2017, from $852.0 million at December 31, 2016, an increase of $101.3 million or 11.9%.

At September 30, 2017, Parke Bancorp had $5.7 million in nonperforming loans representing 0.6% of total loans, a decrease of $5.6 million or 49.3%, from $11.3 million at December 31, 2016. OREO at September 30, 2017 was $7.5 million, compared to $10.5 million at December 31, 2016, a decrease of 28.9%. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonperforming loans and OREO) represented 1.2% of total assets at September 30, 2017, as compared to 2.1% of total assets at December 31, 2016. The decrease in nonperforming assets was accomplished through $5.1 million in sales and workouts and $3.5 million in charge-offs and write-downs. Loans past due 30 to 89 days were $636,000 at September 30, 2017, a decrease of $2.8 million from the previous quarter end.

At September 30, 2017, Parke Bancorp's allowance for loan losses was $15.8 million, as compared to $15.6 million at December 31, 2016. The ratio of allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.7% at September 30, 2017, and 1.8% at December 31, 2016.

Vito S. Pantilione, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parke Bancorp and Parke Bank, provided the following statement:

"Strong loan growth continued through the 3rd quarter, which when combined with decreased non-performing assets expenses and continued discipline in controlling expenses supports Parke Bancorp's strong earnings. When deducting the non-recurring income of the sale of our SBA company in 2016, our year to date earnings increased 36.2% year to year. We have established a new SBA division in Parke Bank, which is already contributing to the profitability of our Company. Our two new branches located in Collingswood and Chinatown in Philadelphia have exceeded projections for deposit and loan growth. Both new branches have each generated close to $30 million in new deposits in less than a year. The Philadelphia area market continues to be very strong and our branch network is well positioned to expand with the strength of this market."
