PORTLAND, Maine, July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northeast Bank (the “Bank”) (NASDAQ: NBN), a Maine-based full-service bank, today reported net income of $21.4 million, or $2.54 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to net income of $11.2 million, or $1.33 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Net income for the year ended June 30, 2021 was $71.5 million, or $8.55 per diluted common share, compared to $22.7 million, or $2.53 per diluted common share, for the year ended June 30, 2020. Net income for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2021 included $12.6 million and $46.7 million, respectively, of net gains on the sale of U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans sold during the quarter and year ended June 30, 2021, which had an after-tax earnings per diluted common share impact of $1.06 and $3.95, respectively.

The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.01 per share, payable on August 27, 2021, to shareholders of record as of August 13, 2021.

“We closed our fiscal year with another strong quarter,” said Rick Wayne, Chief Executive Officer. “For the fourth fiscal quarter, we originated $563.0 million of Round 2 PPP loans, sold $671.4 million to The Loan Source, Inc., and generated $12.6 million of net gains. For the year ended June 30, 2021, we originated $2.84 billion of PPP loans to over 30,000 borrowers with 287,000 associated jobs. Additionally, in the fourth quarter, we generated $6.7 million of correspondent fee income under the arrangement with Loan Source and ACAP SME, LLC. As correspondent, we facilitated for Loan Source purchases of $4.4 billion of PPP loans during the quarter and cumulative purchases of $11.2 billion through June 30, 2021. Our national lending business remained strong, with originated and purchased loans of $147.8 million during the quarter and $478.4 million for the year, representing 11.5% annual growth.” Mr. Wayne continued, “As a result, we are reporting earnings of $2.54 per diluted common share, a return on average equity of 38.0%, a return on average assets of 4.6%, and an efficiency ratio of 25.0% for the quarter.”

As of June 30, 2021, total assets were $2.17 billion, an increase of $916.8 million, or 72.9%, from total assets of $1.26 billion as of June 30, 2020.

1.

Cash and short-term investments increased by $866.8 million, or 603.4%, primarily due to the timing of a large deposit account related to PPP payoff collections and purchases that is subject to significant fluctuation given the PPP activity during the quarter ended June 30, 2021. Cash and short-term investments may fluctuate significantly and remain at an elevated level while PPP collections, including forgiveness amounts, continue, depending on the timing of receipts and remittances of cash amounts.

(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 purchased loans held for sale, on an annualized basis. The total return on purchased loans does not include the effect of purchased loan charge-offs or recoveries during the period. Total return on purchased loans is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. See reconciliation in below table entitled “Total Return on Purchased Loans.”

3.

Deposits increased by $850.1 million, or 84.0%, from June 30, 2020. The increase was attributable to increases in demand deposits of $877.7 million, or 926.4%, and savings and interest checking accounts of $187.2 million, or 135.9%, partially offset by a decrease in time deposits of $199.6 million, or 41.8%, due to intentional runoff. The increase in demand deposits was primarily due to the timing of a large deposit account related to PPP collections and payoffs that is subject to significant fluctuation given the PPP forgiveness activity during the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

4.

Shareholders’ equity increased by $67.7 million, or 41.1%, from June 30, 2020, primarily due to net income of $71.5 million. Shareholders’ equity also increased by $965 thousand as a result of stock options exercised, which resulted in 153 thousand shares of common stock issued, and increased by $978 thousand due to stock-based compensation. Partially offsetting these increases was the repurchase of 194,317 shares of common stock at a weighted average price per share of $29.56, which resulted in a $5.7 million decrease in shareholders’ equity.

Net income increased by $10.2 million to $21.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to net income of $11.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

1.

Net interest and dividend income before provision for loan losses increased by $718 thousand to $18.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to $17.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase was primarily due to the following:

  • A decrease in deposit interest expense of $2.4 million, due to lower interest rates and lower average balances in interest-bearing deposits; partially offset by,

  • A decrease in PPP loan interest income of $677 thousand, due to lower average balances;

  • A decrease in interest income earned on the National Lending Division’s originated portfolio of $509 thousand, due to lower rates earned, partially offset by higher average balances; and

  • A decrease of $390 thousand in interest income earned on the Community Bank portfolio, due to lower average balances and average rates earned.

(1) The total return on purchased loans represents scheduled accretion, accelerated accretion, gains on asset sales and gains on real estate owned recorded during the period divided by the average invested balance, which includes purchased 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.

2.

Provision for loan losses decreased by $2.8 million to a credit of $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, from a $905 thousand provision in the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The decrease in the provision for loan losses reflects decreases in certain qualitative factors during the current quarter as a result of continued improvements from the COVID-19 pandemic, primarily in the SBA loan portfolio, partially offset by an increase in loan balances during the quarter.

3.

Noninterest income increased by $9.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020, principally due to the following:

  • An increase in gain on sale of PPP loans of $2.9 million, due to the sale of PPP loans with a total principal balance of $671.4 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the sale of PPP loans with a total balance of $457.6 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2020, which resulted in a net gain based on the recognition of net deferred fees; and

  • An increase in correspondent fee income of $6.6 million from the recognition of correspondent fees and net servicing income as a result of the correspondent arrangement entered into with The Loan Source, Inc. (“Loan Source”) during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Under the correspondent arrangement, the Bank earns a correspondent fee when Loan Source purchases PPP loans and the Bank subsequently shares in net servicing income on such purchased PPP loans. Correspondent income for the quarter is comprised of the following components:

(1) - Northeast Bank's share

(2) - Expected to be recognized into income over life of loans

(3) - Loan Source’s ending PPP loan balance was $8.39 billion as of June 30, 2021

In addition to these increases:

  • A decrease in loss on assets held for sale of $337 thousand due to the fair value adjustment for PPP loans held for sale at June 30, 2020, as compared to no PPP loans held for sale at June 30, 2021.

4.

Noninterest expense decreased by $741 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020, primarily due to the following:

  • A decrease in salaries expense of $1.7 million, primarily due to a decrease of $1.4 million in incentive compensation due to the annual bonus true-up being recorded during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and an increase of $733 thousand in deferred salaries contra-expense related to higher PPP originations, partially offset by an increase of $310 thousand in regular compensation, due to salary increases; partially offset by,

  • An increase in loan expense of $648 thousand, primarily due to $522 thousand in correspondent expenses associated with the Loan Source correspondent arrangement and increased collection legal expenses;

  • An increase in other noninterest expense of $158 thousand, primarily due to the quarterly valuation of the SBA servicing asset, which resulted in a $93 thousand recovery during the quarter ended June 30, 2021 as compared to a $190 thousand recovery during the quarter ended June 30, 2020; and

  • An increase in marketing expense of $154 thousand, due to increased website advertising and general production in connection with National Lending Division and deposit initiatives.

5.

Income tax expense increased by $4.0 million to $8.9 million, or an effective tax rate of 29.4%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to $4.9 million, or an effective tax rate of 30.4%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase in income tax expense is due to the increase in pre-tax income. The decrease in the effective tax rate from June 30, 2020 is primarily due to a smaller year-end true-up adjustment related to state tax apportionment in the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

As of June 30, 2021, nonperforming assets totaled $20.4 million, or 0.94% of total assets, compared to $24.4 million, or 1.94% of total assets, as of June 30, 2020. As of June 30, 2021, past due loans totaled $11.3 million, or 1.08% of total loans, compared to past due loans totaling $16.4 million, or 1.69% of total loans, as of June 30, 2020.

As of June 30, 2021, the Bank’s Tier 1 leverage capital ratio was 13.6%, compared to 13.4% at June 30, 2020, and the Total capital ratio was 24.3% at June 30, 2021, compared to 19.6% at June 30, 2020. Capital ratios were affected by earnings during the year ended June 30, 2021.

These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. 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.

Forward-Looking Statements
Statements in this press release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and are intended to be covered by the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Although the Bank believes that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable estimates and assumptions, they are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors. You should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. You should exercise caution in interpreting and relying on forward-looking statements because they are subject to significant risks, uncertainties and other factors which are, in some cases, beyond the Bank’s control. The Bank’s actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of, among other factors, the ongoing negative impacts and disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken to contain its spread on our employees, customers, business operations, credit quality, financial position, liquidity and results of operations; general business and economic conditions on a national basis and in the local markets in which the Bank operates, including changes which adversely affect borrowers’ ability to service and repay our loans; changes in customer behavior due to changing political, business and economic conditions or legislative or regulatory initiatives; turbulence in the capital and debt markets; changes in interest rates and real estate values; increases in loan defaults and charge-off rates; decreases in the value of securities and other assets, adequacy of loan loss reserves, or deposit levels necessitating increased borrowing to fund loans and investments; changing government regulation; competitive pressures from other financial institutions; operational risks including, but not limited to, cybersecurity incidents, fraud, natural disasters and future pandemics; the risk that the Bank may not be successful in the implementation of its business strategy; the risk that intangibles recorded in the Bank’s financial statements will become impaired; changes in assumptions used in making such forward-looking statements; and the other risks and uncertainties detailed in the Bank’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and updated by our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other filings submitted to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. These statements speak only as of the date of this release and the Bank does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this communication or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

(1) The net interest rate spread represents the difference between the weighted-average yield on interest-earning assets and the weighted-average cost of interest-bearing liabilities for the period.

(2) The net interest margin represents net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets for the period.

(3) Net interest margin excluding PPP removes the effects of the following: PPP loan interest income of $884 thousand, $2.6 million, $80 thousand, and $1.6 million, PPPLF interest expense of $98 thousand, $300 thousand, $2 thousand, and $174 thousand, and brokered CD interest expense of $0, $99 thousand, $0, and $0, as well as PPP loan average balances of $172.8 million, $481.9 million, $16.9 million and $223.8 million, for the quarters ended June 30, 2021, March 31, 2021, September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively.

(4) Net interest margin excluding PPP and collection account removes the PPP impact above and removes the effects of the cash held by the Bank from the correspondent’s collection account in short-term investments, which had an average balance of $405.9 million and $121.7 million and earned $100 thousand and $29 thousand in interest income for the quarters ended June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, respectively.

(5) The efficiency ratio represents noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income (before the loan loss provision) plus noninterest income.

(6) For purposes of calculating this ratio, commercial real estate includes all non-owner occupied commercial real estate loans defined as such by regulatory guidance, including all land development and construction loans.

(7) Core deposits exclude all maturity deposits greater than $250 thousand. Loans include loans held for sale, excluding PPP loans held for sale.

(8) Includes the loan servicing rights asset.
