Financial Performance Overview

Third Quarter 2017 compared to Second Quarter 2017

For the third quarter of 2017, net income totaled $45.8 million, an increase of $6.2 million as compared to the second quarter of 2017. The changes in net income on a sequential quarter basis are highlighted below.

Net interest income increased by $3.9 million, or 2.3%, as compared to the second quarter of 2017. Changes within interest income and expense categories are as follows:

  • An increase in interest and dividend income of $10.3 million, or 4.8%, to $225.8 million as compared to the second quarter of 2017 primarily attributed to a 12 basis point increase in the weighted average loan yield to 4.10%, predominately driven by higher average yields on new loan origination volume.
  • Prepayment penalties, which are included in interest income, totaled $5.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to $3.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.
  • An increase in total interest expense of $6.4 million primarily attributable to rising deposit and borrowing costs, as well as an increase in the average balance of total interest-bearing liabilities of $504.7 million, or 2.7%, to $18.94 billion. The weighted average cost of interest-bearing liabilities for the three months ended September 30, 2017 increased 11 basis points to 1.16%.

The net interest margin remained consistent at 2.87% for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, primarily driven by higher loan yields offset by increased deposit and borrowing costs.

Total non-interest income decreased by $925,000 to $8.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017 primarily driven by a decrease in gain on loan sales of $480,000 and a decrease in other income of $475,000 attributed to non-depository investment products.

Total non-interest expenses were $103.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, a decrease of $3.0 million, or 2.8%, as compared to the second quarter of 2017. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, professional fees decreased $6.4 million. The third quarter included $5.0 million of professional fees attributable to our bank secrecy act and anti-money laundering ("BSA") remediation efforts, a decrease of $4.5 million from the second quarter. Resolving these matters continues to be a top priority. This decrease was partially offset by compensation and fringe benefits which increased $3.2 million due to additions to our staff to support continued growth and continued build out of our risk management and operating infrastructure.

Income tax expense was $28.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and $24.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The effective tax rate was 38.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 38.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2017. Income tax expense includes the excess tax benefits related to the Company's stock plans of $127,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and $173,000 for three months ended June 30, 2017.

Third Quarter 2017 compared to Third Quarter 2016

On a year over year basis, net interest income increased by $11.3 million, or 7.1%, in the third quarter of 2017, as compared to the third quarter of 2016 due to:

  • An increase in interest and dividend income of $27.4 million, or 13.8%, to $225.8 million as a result of a $1.93 billion increase in the average balance of net loans from continued loan origination growth. The weighted average yield on net loans increased 5 basis points to 4.10% primarily driven by higher average yields on new loan origination volume.
  • Prepayment penalties, which are included in interest income, totaled $5.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $4.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016.
  • An increase in total interest expense of $16.1 million was primarily attributed to an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing deposits of $1.74 billion, or 13.9%, to $14.30 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and an increase in the average balance of total borrowed funds of $558.9 million, or 13.7%, to $4.63 billion. The weighted average cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased 23 basis points to 1.16% for the three months ended September 30, 2017.

Compared to the third quarter of 2016, total non-interest expenses increased $11.9 million, or 13.0%, year over year. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, compensation and fringe benefits increased $4.0 million due to additions to our staff to support continued growth and continued build out of our risk management and operating infrastructure.

Federal insurance premiums increased $900,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2017.

Income tax expense was $28.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and $21.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017 compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016

Net income decreased by $8.2 million year over year to $131.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The change in net income year over year is the result of the following:

Net interest income increased by $33.6 million, or 7.1%, as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2016 due to:

  • Total interest and dividend income increased by $65.9 million, or 11.3%, to $651.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the nine months of 2016, primarily attributed to a $2.07 billion increase in the average balance of net loans from continued loan origination growth in the commercial loan portfolio. This increase was partially offset by an 8 basis point decrease in the weighted average loan yield to 4.01% impacted partially by a decrease in prepayment penalties.
  • Prepayment penalties, which are included in interest income, totaled $11.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $14.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
  • Total interest expense increased by $32.3 million, or 28.4%, to $146.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to the nine months of 2016. The increase was primarily attributed to an increase in the average balance of total interest-bearing liabilities of $2.32 billion, or 14.4%, to $18.42 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. In addition, the weighted average cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased 12 basis points to 1.06% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

The net interest margin decreased 14 basis points to 2.89% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 from 3.03% for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, primarily driven by higher costs of interest-bearing liabilities.

Total non-interest income was $27.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, a decrease of $1.3 million, or 4.5%, as compared to the nine months of 2016.

Total non-interest expenses were $309.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $39.5 million, or 14.7%, as compared to the nine months of 2016. Professional fees increased $15.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the nine months of 2016, largely attributable to BSA remediation efforts and the continued risk management infrastructure enhancements. Excluding the impact of BSA-related professional fees, total non-interest expenses totaled $291.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Compensation and fringe benefits increased $9.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as a result of additions to our staff to support continued growth and infrastructure, especially in our risk management area, as well as normal merit increases, partially offset by lower pension costs. Advertising and promotional expenses increased $5.3 million due to our current advertising campaigns. Federal insurance premiums increased $3.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Income tax expense was $80.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $76.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The effective tax rate was 37.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 35.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Income tax expense includes the excess tax benefits related to the Company's stock plans of $1.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and $8.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Asset Quality

Our provision is primarily a result of the inherent credit risk in our overall portfolio, the growth of the loan portfolio, and the level of non-accrual loans and charge-offs. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, our provision for loan losses was $1.8 million, compared to $6.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and $5.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, net charge-offs were $1.7 million compared to $6.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. Our provision for loan losses was $11.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared with $15.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, net charge-offs were $10.1 million compared to $10.0 million for the the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Our accruing past due loans and non-accrual loans discussed below exclude certain purchased credit impaired ("PCI") loans, primarily consisting of loans recorded in the Company's acquisitions. Under U.S. GAAP, the PCI loans (acquired at a discount that is due, in part, to credit quality) are not subject to delinquency classification in the same manner as loans originated by the Bank.

Total non-accrual loans were $125.7 million, or 0.63% of total loans, at September 30, 2017 compared to $177.4 million, or 0.89% of total loans, at June 30, 2017 and $94.3 million, or 0.50% of total loans, at December 31, 2016. During the three months ended September 30, 2017, we sold a $48.1 million commercial loan relationship which was included in our non-accrual loans at June 30, 2017. We continue to proactively and diligently work to resolve our troubled loans in light of the impact that low economic growth, rising interest rates and regional real estate market conditions may have on our portfolio.

At September 30, 2017, there were $47.1 million of loans deemed as troubled debt restructured loans ("TDRs"), of which $27.7 million were residential and consumer loans, $18.1 million were commercial real estate loans and $1.3 million were commercial and industrial loans. TDRs of $13.4 million were classified as accruing and $33.7 million were classified as non-accrual at September 30, 2017.

The following table sets forth non-accrual loans and accruing past due loans (excluding PCI loans and loans held for sale) on the dates indicated as well as certain asset quality ratios.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, we originated $999.7 million in multi-family loans, $637.3 million in commercial real estate loans, $444.2 million in commercial and industrial loans, $388.5 million in residential loans, $344.6 million in construction loans and $101.5 million in consumer and other loans. This increase in loans reflects our continued focus on generating multi-family loans, commercial real estate loans and commercial and industrial loans, which was partially offset by pay downs and payoffs of loans. Our loans are primarily on properties and businesses located in New Jersey and New York.

In addition to the loans originated for our portfolio, our mortgage subsidiary, Investors Home Mortgage Co., originated residential mortgage loans for sale to third parties totaling $126.8 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

The allowance for loan losses increased by $1.7 million to $230.1 million at September 30, 2017 from $228.4 million at December 31, 2016. The increase in our allowance for loan losses from December 31, 2016 is due to the inherent credit risk in our overall portfolio, the growth of the loan portfolio, and the level of non-accrual loans and charge-offs. Future increases in the allowance for loan losses may be necessary based on the growth and composition of the loan portfolio, the level of loan delinquency and the economic conditions in our lending area. At September 30, 2017, our allowance for loan losses as a percent of total loans was 1.15%.

Securities increased by $267.2 million, or 7.8%, to $3.68 billion at September 30, 2017 from $3.42 billion at December 31, 2016. This increase was a result of purchases partially offset by paydowns and sales.

Deposits increased by $1.60 billion, or 10.4%, from $15.28 billion at December 31, 2016 to $16.88 billion at September 30, 2017. The increase is partially attributed to the deposit campaign in the third quarter. Checking accounts increased $806.6 million to $6.90 billion at September 30, 2017 from $6.09 billion at December 31, 2016. Core deposits (savings, checking and money market) represented approximately 78% of our total deposit portfolio at September 30, 2017.

Borrowed funds decreased by $61.4 million, or 1.4%, to $4.48 billion at September 30, 2017 from $4.55 billion at December 31, 2016. Short term borrowings were reduced as a result of our deposit gathering efforts during the third quarter of 2017.

Stockholders' equity increased by $31.9 million to $3.16 billion at September 30, 2017 from $3.12 billion at December 31, 2016. The increase is primarily attributed to net income of $131.5 million and share-based plan costs of $27.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. These increases were partially offset by cash dividends of $0.24 per share totaling $74.1 million and the repurchase of 4.4 million shares of common stock for $57.8 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The Bank remains significantly above FDIC "well capitalized" standards, with Tier 1 Leverage Ratio of 11.38% at September 30, 2017.

Forward looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, as described in the "Risk Factors" disclosures included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as supplemented in quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, including, but not limited to, those related to the real estate and economic environment, particularly in the market areas in which the Company operates, competitive products and pricing, fiscal and monetary policies of the U.S. Government, changes in government regulations affecting financial institutions, including regulatory fees and capital requirements, changes in prevailing interest rates, acquisitions and the integration of acquired businesses, credit risk management, asset-liability management, the financial and securities markets and the availability of and costs associated with sources of liquidity.

The Company wishes to caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. The Company wishes to advise readers that the factors listed above could affect the Company's financial performance and could cause the Company's actual results for future periods to differ materially from any opinions or statements expressed with respect to future periods in any current statements. The Company does not undertake and specifically declines any obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions that may be made to any forward looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We believe that providing certain non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with information useful in understanding our financial performance, our performance trends and financial position. We utilize these measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that our presentation and discussion, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business and allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures and results, and we strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.
