Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. Reports Results for 2022

GREAT NECK, N.Y., March 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (Nasdaq: LOAN) announced today that net income for the year ended December 31, 2022 was approximately $5,212,000, or $0.45 per share (based on approximately 11.5 million weighted-average outstanding common shares), versus approximately $4,423,000, or $0.42 per share (based on approximately 10.5 million weighted-average outstanding common shares) for the year ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $789,000, or 17.8%. This increase is primarily attributable to an increase in revenue, partially offset by increases in interest expense and general and administrative expenses.

Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2022 was approximately $8,571,000, compared to approximately $6,808,000 for the year ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $1,763,000, or 25.9%. The increase in revenue was due to an increase in lending operations. In 2022, approximately $6,773,000 of our revenue represents interest income on secured, real estate loans that we offer to real estate investors compared to approximately $5,609,000 in 2021, and approximately $1,798,000 represents origination fees on such loans, compared to approximately $1,199,000 in 2021. The loans are principally secured by collateral consisting of real estate and accompanied by personal guarantees from the principals of the borrowers.

Total operating costs and expenses for the year ended December 31, 2022 were approximately $3,377,000 compared to approximately $2,402,000 for the year ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $975,000, or 40.6%. The increase in operating costs and expenses was primarily attributable to an increase in interest expense due to higher LIBOR rates relating to the use of our credit line in order to support our ability to increase loan originations, the significant reduction in the outstanding balance of our credit line due to a public offering of our common shares in July 2021, which gradually increased through December 2022, and a voluntary waiver from our Chief Executive Officer of his base salary for the fourth quarter of 2021.

As of December 31, 2022, total shareholders' equity was approximately $42,864,000, compared to approximately $43,386,000 as of December 31, 2021.

Assaf Ran, Chairman of the Board and CEO, stated, “The dramatic interest rate increase during the 2022 fiscal year changed the dynamics of “Hard Money” lending. We have experienced a slow real estate market, a tight spread, and a drop in investor confidence, but also less competition. Although we benefited tremendously from our low debt-to-equity ratio in this rough time, and managed to present an all-time annual earnings record, the increased interest rate on our adjustable-rate line of credit became an unexpected burden and the main reason that our earnings per share were only $0.45 for the 2022 fiscal year.”
