Results of Operations

Comparison of Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

Net income was $15.3 million and $17.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively. Significant variances from the comparable prior year period are as follows: a $5.7 million increase in net interest income, a $9.6 million increase in the provision for loan losses, a $1.5 million decrease in non-interest income, a $4.4 million decrease in non-interest expense, and a $634,000 increase in income tax expense. 

Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2020, increased $5.7 million, or 10.4%, to $60.2 million, from $54.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to a $498.3 million, or 11.7%, increase in our average interest-earning assets, partially offset by a four basis point decrease in our net interest margin to 2.55% from 2.59% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in our average interest-earning assets was due to increases in average loans outstanding of $290.0 million, average mortgage-backed securities of $262.7 million, average interest-earning deposits in financial institutions of $33.1 million, and average Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (“FHLBNY”) stock of $7.0 million, partially offset by decreases in average other securities of $94.6 million. The decrease in net interest margin was due to lower yields on interest-earning assets which decreased 24 basis points to 3.55% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, from 3.79% for the six months ended June 30, 2019, partially offset by a 26 basis point decrease in the cost of our interest-bearing liabilities to 1.24% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, from 1.50% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2020, included loan prepayment income of $992,000 as compared to $594,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

The provision for loan losses increased by $9.6 million to $10.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $550,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in the provision primarily reflects increased reserves related to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) pandemic, including increases to our qualitative loss factors primarily related to higher unemployment, and loan risk rating changes related to loan modification requests, and, to a lesser extent, increased delinquencies, and loan growth. Net charge-offs were $292,000 and $215,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, and June 30, 2019, respectively.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act, a stimulus package signed into law on March 27, 2020, to address economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, provides financial institutions with the option to defer adoption of the Financial Accounting Standards Board's Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) until the earlier of the end of the pandemic or December 31, 2020. The Company has elected to defer adoption of ASU No. 2016-13 and its Current Expected Credit Loss methodology (“CECL”). Upon the Company's future adoption of CECL, the change from the incurred loss methodology to the CECL methodology will be recognized through an adjustment to retained earnings, with an effective retrospective implementation date of January 1, 2020.

Non-interest income decreased $1.5 million, or 26.1%, to $4.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, from $5.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to decreases of $561,000 in fees and service charges for customer services and $1.8 million in gains on trading securities, net, partially offset by a $665,000 gain on the sale of a portfolio of multifamily loans, and an increase in other income of $373,000. The decrease in fees and service charges for customer services was primarily due to a decline in overdraft charges, attributable to fees waived due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a decline in overdrafts due to lower consumer spending. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, losses on trading securities were $366,000 as compared to gains of $1.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The trading portfolio is utilized to fund the Company’s deferred compensation obligation to certain employees and directors of the Company's deferred compensation plan (the “Plan”). The participants of this Plan, at their election, defer a portion of their compensation. Gains and losses on trading securities have no effect on net income since participants benefit from, and bear the full risk of, changes in the trading securities market values. Therefore, the Company records an equal and offsetting amount in compensation expense, reflecting the change in the Company’s obligations under the Plan. The increase in other income is primarily attributable to an increase in swap fee income.
    
Non-interest expense decreased $4.4 million, or 11.6%, to $33.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $38.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. This is due primarily to: (i) a $3.1 million decrease in employee compensation and benefits, $1.8 million of which is related to the Company's deferred compensation plan, which is described above and has no effect on net income, coupled with a $1.1 million decrease in equity award expense related to equity awards that fully vested in June 2019; (ii) a $324,000 decrease in occupancy expense primarily due to lower rent and leasehold amortization expense related to the closing of three branches effective December 31, 2019; (iii) a $934,000 decrease in advertising expense, primarily due to fewer marketing campaigns in 2020; (iv) a $316,000 decrease in FDIC insurance premiums due to a reduction in our deposit insurance assessment as a result of the utilization of credits received. The credits were provided by the FDIC to banks with total consolidated assets of less than $10.0 billion for the portion of their assessments that contributed to the growth in the FDIC’s reserve ratio; and (v) an $845,000 decrease in other non-interest expense, largely related to a decrease in directors' equity award expense associated with awards that fully vested in June 2019. Partially offsetting the decreases was an increase in professional fees of $596,000, primarily merger-related costs associated with our recent acquisition of Victory, which closed on July 1, 2020, and an increase of $372,000 in data processing costs.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $5.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $4.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2020, was 26.5% compared to 22.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The higher effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2020, is primarily attributable to lower excess tax benefits and non-deductible merger-related expenses of $384,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020. There were no excess tax benefits for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to excess tax benefits of $286,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

Net income was $10.8 million and $8.2 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2020, and June 30, 2019, respectively. Significant variances from the comparable prior year quarter are as follows: a $3.1 million increase in net interest income, a $1.4 million increase in the provision for loan losses, a $1.7 million increase in non-interest income, an $895,000 decrease in non-interest expense, and a $1.6 million increase in income tax expense. 

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, increased $3.1 million, or 11.3%, primarily due to a $519.7 million, or 12.2%, increase in our average interest-earning assets, partially offset by a two basis point decrease in our net interest margin to 2.53% from 2.55% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The increase in average interest-earning assets was due to increases in average loans outstanding of $327.2 million, average mortgage-backed securities of $198.3 million, average FHLBNY stock of $4.5 million, and average interest-earning deposits in financial institutions of $88.2 million, partially offset by a decrease of $98.6 million in average other securities. The decrease in net interest margin was primarily due to lower yields on interest-earning assets which decreased by 34 basis points to 3.43% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from 3.77% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, partially offset by a decrease in the cost of our interest-bearing liabilities, which decreased 41 basis points to 1.12% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from 1.53% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, included loan prepayment income of $365,000, as compared to $174,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. 

The provision for loan losses increased by $1.4 million to $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from a provision of $491,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The increase in the provision primarily reflects increased reserves related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including increases to our qualitative loss factors primarily related to higher unemployment and loan risk rating changes related to loan modification requests, and, to a lesser extent, increases in delinquencies and loan growth. Net charge-offs were $202,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to net charge-offs of $145,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Non-interest income increased $1.7 million, or 65.2%, to $4.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from $2.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, primarily due to an increase of $1.3 million in gains on trading securities, net, a $665,000 gain on the sale of a portfolio of multifamily loans, and a $293,000 increase in other income, partially offset by a $541,000 decrease in fees and service charges for customer services. For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, gains on trading securities, net, included gains of $1.6 million related to the Company’s trading portfolio, compared to gains of $343,000 in the comparative prior year quarter. As previously noted, the trading portfolio is utilized to fund the Company’s deferred compensation obligation to certain employees and directors of the Company's deferred compensation plan, and gains and losses on trading securities have no effect on net income since participants benefit from, and bear the full risk of, changes in the trading securities market values. The increase in other income is primarily attributable to an increase in swap fee income. The decrease in fees and service charges for customer services was primarily due to a decline in overdraft charges, attributable to fees waived due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as a decline in overdrafts due to lower consumer spending.

Non-interest expense decreased by $895,000, or 4.8%, to $17.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from $18.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The decrease was due primarily to decreases of $988,000 in advertising costs, primarily due to fewer marketing campaigns in 2020, and $866,000 in other non-interest expense, attributable to a decrease in reserves for commitments and a decrease in directors' equity award expense associated with awards that fully vested in June 2019. Partially offsetting the decreases were increases in compensation and employee benefits of $607,000, data processing fees of $175,000, and professional fees of $234,000, primarily merger-related costs.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $3.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to $2.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, was 26.5% compared to 21.7% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The higher rate was due primarily to lower excess tax benefits and non-deductible merger-related expenses of $205,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. There were no excess tax benefits for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, as compared to excess tax benefits of $193,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2020, and March 31, 2020

Net income was $10.8 million and $4.6 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2020, and March 31, 2020, respectively. Significant variances from the prior quarter are as follows: a $297,000 increase in net interest income, a $6.3 million decrease in the provision for loan losses, a $4.1 million increase in non-interest income, a $2.2 million increase in non-interest expense, and a $2.3 million increase in income tax expense.

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, increased $297,000, or 1.0%, primarily due to a $112.4 million, or 2.4%, increase in our average interest-earning assets, partially offset by a four basis point decrease in our net interest margin to 2.53% from 2.57% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The increase in our average interest-earning assets was due to increases in average loans outstanding of $116.4 million and average interest-earning deposits in financial institutions of $66.9 million, partially offset by decreases in average mortgage-backed securities of $41.8 million, average other securities of $27.3 million, and average FHLBNY stock of $1.8 million. The decrease in net interest margin was primarily due to due to lower yields on interest-earning assets which decreased by 24 basis points to 3.43% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from 3.67% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, partially offset by a decrease in the cost of our interest-bearing liabilities, which decreased 24 basis points to 1.12% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from 1.36% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, included loan prepayment income of $365,000, as compared to $627,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

The provision for loan losses decreased by $6.3 million to $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from a provision of $8.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The decrease was due in part to less loan growth and the sale of a portfolio of loans totaling approximately $48 million, partially offset by higher net charge-offs Additionally, in the prior quarter, the Company significantly increased its reserves for loan losses to reflect increases to qualitative loss factors related to rising unemployment, loan rating changes related to loan modification requests, and delinquencies attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic. Net charge-offs were $202,000 and $90,000 for the quarters ended June 30, 2020, and March 31, 2020, respectively.

Non-interest income increased by $4.1 million to $4.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from $108,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The increase was primarily due to a $3.6 million increase in gains on trading securities, net, and a $665,000 gain on the sale of a portfolio of multifamily loans. Gains on trading securities were $1.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, as compared to losses of $2.0 million for the prior quarter. As previously noted, the trading portfolio is utilized to fund the Company’s deferred compensation obligation to certain employees and directors of the Company's deferred compensation plan, and gains and losses on trading securities have no effect on net income since participants benefit from, and bear the full risk of, changes in the trading securities market values.

Non-interest expense increased $2.2 million, or 13.9%, to $17.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, from $15.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, primarily due to a $3.2 million increase in employee compensation and benefits, primarily related to the Company's deferred compensation plan. Partially offsetting the increase, were decreases of $475,000 in advertising expense and $785,000 in other non-interest expense. The decrease in other non-interest expense is primarily due to lower reserves for commitments.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $3.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to $1.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was 26.5% compared to 26.3% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Financial Condition

Total assets decreased $13.7 million, or 0.3%, to $5.04 billion at June 30, 2020, from $5.06 billion at December 31, 2019. The decrease was primarily due to decreases in available-for sale debt securities of $100.9 million, or 8.9%, cash and cash equivalents of $36.9 million, or 25.0%, FHLBNY stock of $10.1 million, or 25.6%, other assets of $5.7 million, and an increase in the allowance for loan losses of $9.8 million, or 34.2%. Partially offsetting these decreases, was an increase in loans held-for-investment, net, of $152.3 million, or 4.4%.

As of June 30, 2020, we estimate that our non-owner occupied commercial real estate concentration (as defined by regulatory guidance issued in 2006) to total risk-based capital was approximately 458%. Management believes that Northfield Bank (the Bank) has implemented appropriate risk management practices including risk assessments, board-approved underwriting policies and related procedures which include monitoring Bank portfolio performance, performing market analysis (economic and real estate), and stressing of the Bank’s commercial real estate portfolio under severe, adverse economic conditions. Although management believes the Bank has implemented appropriate policies and procedures to manage our commercial real estate concentration risk, the Bank’s regulators could require us to implement additional policies and procedures or could require us to maintain higher levels of regulatory capital, which might adversely affect our loan originations, ability to pay dividends, and profitability.

Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $36.9 million, or 25.0%, to $110.9 million at June 30, 2020, from $147.8 million at December 31, 2019, primarily due to a decrease in cash balances held at the Federal Reserve Bank. Balances fluctuate based on the timing of receipt of security and loan repayments and the redeployment of cash into higher-yielding assets such as loans and securities, or the funding of deposit outflows or borrowing maturities.

Loans held-for-investment, net, increased $152.3 million to $3.59 billion at June 30, 2020, from $3.44 billion at December 31, 2019, primarily due to an increase in originated loans held-for-investment of $226.6 million, partially offset by decreases in acquired loans of $71.8 million. Originated loans held-for-investment, net, totaled $3.21 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $2.99 billion at December 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to an increase in loans originated under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) authorized by the CARES Act, of $109.2 million, and an increase in multifamily real estate loans of $104.4 million, or 4.8%, to $2.30 billion at June 30, 2020, from $2.20 billion at December 31, 2019. The PPP loans are administered by the Small Business Administration, which provides 100% federally guaranteed loans for small businesses to cover payroll, utilities, rent and interest. These small business loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls and satisfy certain other conditions for a period of time during the COVID-19 pandemic. As of June 30, 2020, we had originated over 900 loans, totaling approximately $109 million, and benefiting small businesses with over 13,000 employees. PPP provides for lender processing fees that range from 1 to 5% of the final disbursement made to individual borrowers. Based on the Company’s approved disbursements as of June 30, 2020, we estimate our loan processing fees would be approximately $4.0 million, which will be recognized in income in future periods over the life of the loans. 

On June 14, 2019, the New York State legislature passed the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019, impacting about one million rent-regulated apartment units. Among other things, the new legislation: (i) curtails rent increases from Material Capital Improvements and Individual Apartment Improvements; (ii) all but eliminates the ability for apartments to exit rent regulation; (iii) does away with vacancy decontrol and high-income deregulation; and (iv) repealed the 20% vacancy bonus. At June 30, 2020, the Company has approximately $423.1 million in multifamily loans in New York City with tenants that have some form of rent stabilization or rent control. The weighted average loan to value (“LTV”) was 44.2% based on the current balance and the collateral value at date of origination on this portfolio. The highest LTV in this portfolio is 72.9%. While it is too early to measure the full impact of the legislation, it generally limits a landlord’s ability to increase rents on rent-regulated apartments and makes it more difficult to convert rent regulated apartments to market rate apartments. As a result, the value of the collateral located in New York State securing the Company’s multifamily loans or the future net operating income of such properties could potentially become impaired. Management will continue to evaluate the effect of rent regulations on the collateral values.

Acquired loans decreased by $71.8 million to $360.9 million at June 30, 2020, from $432.7 million at December 31, 2019, primarily due to paydowns of one-to-four family residential loans.

Purchased credit-impaired (“PCI”) loans totaled $14.8 million at June 30, 2020, as compared to $17.4 million at December 31, 2019. The majority of the PCI loan balance consists of loans acquired as part of a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation-assisted transaction. The Company accreted interest income of $717,000 and $1.5 million attributable to PCI loans for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, as compared to $1.0 million and $2.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively. 

The Company’s available-for-sale debt securities portfolio decreased by $100.9 million, or 8.9%, to $1.04 billion at June 30, 2020, from $1.14 billion at December 31, 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to paydowns, maturities and calls, partially offset by purchases. At June 30, 2020, $943.2 million of the portfolio consisted of residential mortgage-backed securities issued or guaranteed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or Ginnie Mae. In addition, the Company held $94.0 million in corporate bonds, all of which were considered investment grade at June 30, 2020, and $254,000 in municipal bonds.
  
Total liabilities decreased $30.5 million, or 0.7%, to $4.33 billion at June 30, 2020, from $4.36 billion at December 31, 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in other borrowings of $240.7 million, partially offset by an increase in deposits of $213.4 million.

Deposits increased $213.4 million, or 6.3%, to $3.62 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $3.41 billion at December 31, 2019. The increase was attributable to increases of $242.1 million in transaction accounts and $101.6 million in savings accounts, partially offset by decreases of $16.2 million in money market accounts and $114.1 million in certificates of deposit.

Borrowings and securities sold under agreements to repurchase decreased to $616.3 million at June 30, 2020, from $857.0 million at December 31, 2019. Management utilizes borrowings to mitigate interest rate risk, for short-term liquidity, and to a lesser extent as part of leverage strategies.

The following is a table of term borrowing maturities (excluding capitalized leases and overnight borrowings) and the weighted average rate by year at June 30, 2020 (dollars in thousands):

Year   Amount   Weighted Average Rate
2020   $25,000   1.95%
2021   170,000   1.98%
2022   120,000   2.29%

2024   50,000   2.47%
Thereafter   157,500   1.47%

Total stockholders’ equity increased by $16.7 million to $712.6 million at June 30, 2020, from $695.9 million at December 31, 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to a $10.0 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive income associated with unrealized gains on our debt securities available-for-sale portfolio, net income of $15.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, and a $1.7 million increase in equity award activity. The increase was partially offset by $10.3 million in dividend payments.

The Company continues to maintain a strong liquidity and capital position, despite the economic uncertainties presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company's most liquid assets are cash and cash equivalents, corporate bonds, and unpledged mortgage-related securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Fannie Mae, or Freddie Mac, that we can either borrow against or sell. We also have the ability to surrender bank-owned life insurance contracts. The surrender of these contracts would subject the Company to income taxes and penalties for increases in the cash surrender values over the original premium payments. We also have the ability to obtain additional funding from the FHLB and Federal Reserve Bank utilizing unencumbered and unpledged securities and multifamily loans. The Company expects to have sufficient funds available to meet current commitments in the normal course of business.

The Company had the following primary sources of liquidity at June 30, 2020 (dollars in thousands): 

Cash and cash equivalents(1) $ 97,098  
Corporate bonds $ 93,378  
Multifamily loans(2) $ 1,064,498  
Mortgage-backed securities (issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Fannie Mae, or Freddie Mac)(2) $ 572,169  
   

(1) Excludes $13,802 of cash at Northfield Bank.
(2) Represents remaining borrowing potential.        

The Company and the Bank elected to opt into the Community Bank Leverage Ratio (“CBLR”) framework, effective for the first quarter of 2020. The CBLR replaces the risk-based and leverage capital requirements in the generally applicable capital rules. At June 30, 2020, the Company and the Bank's estimated CBLR ratios were 13.0% and 11.9%, respectively, which exceeded the minimum requirement to be considered well-capitalized of 8%. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic the Federal Regulators have lowered the CBLR ratio to 8% which will phase back to the original legislation of 9% by 2022.

COVID-19 Exposure

Management continues to evaluate the Company's exposure to increased loan losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular the commercial real estate and multifamily loan portfolios. The Company has implemented a customer relief program to assist borrowers that may be experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 related challenges. The relief program grants principal and/or interest payment deferrals typically for a period of 90 days. Through June 30, 2020, the Company had executed or approved requests for payment deferral from 262 borrowers (excluding PCI loans), representing $345.9 million, or approximately 9.7%, of the Company’s outstanding originated and acquired loan portfolio as of that date. Loans in deferment status (“COVID-19 Modified Loans”) will continue to accrue interest during the deferment period unless otherwise classified as nonperforming. COVID-19 Modified Loans are required to make escrow payments for real estate taxes and insurance, if applicable. The COVID-19 Modified Loan agreements also require loans to be brought back to their fully contractual terms within 12 to 18 months and include covenants that prohibit distributions, bonuses, or payments of management fees to related entities until all deferred payments are made. Consistent with industry regulatory guidance, borrowers that were otherwise current on loan payments that were granted COVID-19 related financial hardship payment deferrals will continue to be reported as current loans throughout the agreed upon deferral period. Borrowers, which were delinquent in their payments to the Bank, prior to requesting a COVID-19 related financial hardship payment deferral are reviewed on a case by case basis for TDR classification and non-performing loan status.
