WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., July 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NorthEast Community Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: NECB) (the “Company”), the parent holding company of NorthEast Community Bank (the “Bank”), reported net income of $5.4 million and $9.0 million, or $0.35 and $0.58 per basic and diluted common share, for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to net income of $3.7 million and $7.0 million, or $0.23 and $0.43 per basic and diluted common share, for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Kenneth A. Martinek, NorthEast Community Bancorp’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to report another quarter of strong earnings due to the strong performance of our loan portfolio.   Despite the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and the recent increase in interest rates, loan demand remained strong with originations and outstanding commitments increasing quarter over quarter. Our commitments, loans-in-process, and standby letters of credit outstanding totaled $879.0 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $749.0 million at December 31, 2021. The performance of our loan portfolio remains strong with only two non-residential loans secured by the same property to one borrower that are on non-accrual and in foreclosure due to a maturity default at June 30, 2022. At this time, we have no loans on deferral as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As has been in the past, construction lending for affordable housing units in high demand high absorption areas continues to be our focus.”

Highlights for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2022 are as follows:

  • Net income increased by $1.7 million and $2.0 million, or 44.9% and 29.7%, for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the same periods in the prior year.
  • Net interest income increased by $3.2 million and $4.7 million, or 30.5% and 22.8%, for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the same periods in 2021.
  • Asset quality metrics continued to remain strong with non-performing assets to total assets of 0.23% and 0.16% at June 30, 2022 and at December 31, 2021. Our allowance for loan losses totaled $5.5 million, or 0.53% of total loans at June 30, 2022 compared to $5.2 million, or 0.54% of total loans at December 31, 2021.
  • In accordance with the provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), since March 2020, we granted pandemic-related loan payment deferrals to 196 loans totaling $190.9 million at the time payment deferral was requested. At June 30, 2022, we had no loans in deferral status.

Balance Sheet Summary
Total assets decreased by $3.5 million, or 0.3%, to $1.2 billion at June 30, 2022, from $1.2 billion at December 31, 2021. The decrease in assets was primarily due to decreases in cash and cash equivalents of $66.0 million and equity securities of $1.1 million, partially offset by increases in net loans of $50.6 million, securities held-to-maturity of $9.3 million, and premises and equipment of $2.3 million.

Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $66.0 million, or 43.4%, to $86.2 million at June 30, 2022 from $152.3 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents was a result of cash being deployed to fund an increase in net loans of $50.6 million, an increase in securities held-to-maturity of $9.3 million, an increase in property and equipment of $2.3 million due primarily to the purchase of property and equipment for a new branch office, and a reduction in FHLB advances of $7.0 million.

Equity securities decreased by $1.1 million, or 5.3%, to $18.9 million at June 30, 2022 from $19.9 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease in equity securities was primarily attributable to market depreciation of $1.1 million as market interest rates increased during the six months ended June 30, 2022.

Securities held-to-maturity increased by $9.3 million, or 52.1%, to $27.2 million at June 30, 2022 from $17.9 million at December 31, 2021 due primarily to the purchases of securities, partially offset by maturities and pay-downs.

Loans, net of the allowance for loan losses, increased by $50.6 million, or 5.2%, to $1.0 billion at June 30, 2022 from $968.1 million at December 31, 2021.   The increase in loans, net of the allowance for loan losses, was primarily due to loan originations of $307.4 million during the six months ended June 30, 2022, consisting primarily of $266.3 million in construction loans with respect to which approximately 32.1% of the funds were disbursed at loan closings, with the remaining funds to be disbursed over the terms of the construction loans.  

Loan originations resulted in a net increase of $97.0 million in construction loans. The increase in our loan portfolio was partially offset by decreases in non-residential loans of $23.4 million, commercial and industrial loans of $15.8 million, mixed-use loans of $5.2 million, residential loans of $1.4 million, and multi-family loans of $560,000, coupled with normal pay-downs and principal reductions.

Premises and equipment increased by $2.3 million, or 9.7%, to $26.2 million at June 30, 2022 from $23.9 million at December 31, 2021 due to the acquisition of property and equipment for a new branch site located in Bloomingburg, New York.

Investments in restricted stock decreased by $331,000, or 21.1%, to $1.2 million at June 30, 2022 from $1.6 million at December 31, 2021 due primarily to a reduction in mandatory Federal Home Loan Bank stock in connection with the maturity/pay-off of $7.0 million in advances during the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Accrued interest receivable increased by $949,000, or 22.2%, to $5.2 million at June 30, 2022 from $4.3 million at December 31, 2021 due to an increase in the loan portfolio.

Foreclosed real estate was $2.0 million at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Right of use assets — operating decreased by $268,000, or 10.5%, to $2.3 million at June 30, 2022 from $2.6 million at December 31, 2021, primarily due to amortization.

Other assets increased by $793,000, or 16.9%, to $5.5 million at June 30, 2022 from $4.7 million at December 31, 2021 due to increases in suspense accounts of $406,000, tax assets of $326,000, and prepaid expenses of $84,000.

Total deposits increased by $1.4 million, or 0.2%, to $928.6 million at June 30, 2022 from $927.2 million at December 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to an increase in non-interest bearing demand deposits of $31.6 million, or 9.6% and an increase in savings account balances of $24.5 million, or 13.3%. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in certificates of deposit of $48.7 million, or 16.6% and a decrease in NOW/money market accounts of $6.1 million, or 5.1%, from December 31, 2021 to June 30, 2022.

Federal Home Loan Bank advances decreased by $7.0 million, or 25.0%, to $21.0 million at June 30, 2022 from $28.0 million at December 31, 2021.

Advance payments by borrowers for taxes and insurance decreased by $147,000, or 7.8%, to $1.7 million at June 30, 2022 from $1.9 million at December 31, 2021 due primarily to the payment of taxes for borrowers, partially offset by the accumulation of tax payments from borrowers.

Lease liability – operating decreased by $260,000, or 10.0%, to $2.3 million at June 30, 2022 from $2.6 million at December 31, 2021, primarily due to amortization.

Accounts payable and accrued expenses decreased by $2.5 million, or 18.1%, to $11.1 million at June 30, 2022 from $13.5 million at December 31, 2021 due primarily to a decrease in suspense accounts for loan closings of $1.6 million and a decrease in accrued expenses of $1.2 million.

Stockholders’ equity increased by $4.9 million, or 2.0% to $256.3 million at June 30, 2022, from $251.4 million at December 31, 2021. The increase in stockholders’ equity was due to net income of $9.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a reduction of $504,000 in unearned employee stock ownership plan shares, and $41,000 in other comprehensive income, partially offset by dividends paid and declared of $4.7 million.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income totaled $13.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to $10.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in net interest income of $3.2 million, or 30.5%, was primarily due to an increase in interest income combined with a decrease in interest expense.

The increase in interest income is attributable to increases in loans, investment securities, equity securities, and interest-bearing deposits as we continued to deploy the proceeds raised in our July 2021 second-step conversion. The increase in interest income is also attributable to an increase in interest rates during the three months ended June 30, 2022.

The decrease in interest expense is attributable to a decrease in the balances and cost of funds on our certificates of deposits and on our borrowed money, partially offset by increases in the balances and cost of funds in our interest-bearing demand deposits and our savings and club accounts.

In this regard, total interest income increased by $3.2 million, or 27.1%, to $14.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $11.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 due to an increase in the average balance of interest earning assets of $257.0 million, or 27.8%, to $1.2 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $924.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, partially offset by a decrease in the yield on interest earning assets by 3 basis points from 5.05% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 to 5.02% for the three months ended June 30, 2022.  

Interest expense decreased by $2,000, or 0.2%, to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 due to a decrease in the cost of interest bearing liabilities by 7 basis points from 0.91% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 to 0.84% for the three months ended June 30, 2022, partially offset by an increase in average interest bearing liabilities of  $45.4 million, or 8.0%, to $613.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $568.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Net interest margin increased by 9 basis points, or 2.1%, during the three months ended June 30, 2022 to 4.58% compared to 4.49% during the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Net interest income totaled $25.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to $20.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in net interest income of $4.7 million, or 22.8%, was primarily due to an increase in interest income combined with a decrease in interest expense.

The increase in interest income is attributable to increases in loans, investment securities, equity securities, and interest-bearing deposits as we continued to deploy the proceeds raised in our July 2021 second-step conversion. The increase in interest income is also attributable to an increase in interest rates during the six months ended June 30, 2022.

The decrease in interest expense is attributable to a decrease in the balances and cost of funds on our certificates of deposits and on our borrowed money, partially offset by increases in the balances and cost of funds in our interest-bearing demand deposits and our savings and club accounts.

In this regard, interest income increased by $4.6 million, or 19.6%, to $28.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $23.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 due to an increase in the average balance of interest earning assets of $262.5 million, or 28.7%, to $1.2 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $913.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, partially offset by a decrease in the yield on interest earning assets by 36 basis points from 5.14% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to 4.78% for the six months ended June 30, 2022.  

Interest expense decreased by $119,000, or 4.3%, to $2.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $2.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 due to a decrease in the cost of interest bearing liabilities by 12 basis points from 0.97% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to 0.85% for the six months ended June 30, 2022, partially offset by an increase in average interest bearing liabilities of  $52.6 million, or 9.2%, to $624.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $571.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Non-interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $536,000 compared to non-interest income of $778,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in total non-interest income was primarily due to an unrealized loss of $430,000 on equity securities during the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to an unrealized gain of $93,000 on equity securities during the three months ended June 30, 2021. The unrealized loss of $430,000 on equity securities was primarily due to a rising interest rate environment and the Federal Reserve’s interest rate increases during the June 30, 2022 quarter.

The decrease in total non-interest income was partially offset by an increase of $234,000 in other loan fees and service charges, an increase of $39,000 on gain from the sale of fixed assets, an increase of $10,000 in other non-interest income, an increase of $2,000 in bank-owned life insurance income, and a decrease of $4,000 in investment advisory fees.

The unrealized loss of $1.1 million on equity securities was primarily due to a rising interest rate environment and the Federal Reserve’s interest rate increases during the six months ended June 30, 2022.

The decrease in total non-interest income was partially offset by an increase of $303,000 in other loan fees and service charges, an increase of $39,000 on gain from the sale of fixed assets, an increase of $15,000 in investment advisory fees, an increase of $16,000 in other non-interest income, and an increase of $2,000 in bank-owned life insurance income.

Income Taxes
We recorded income tax expense of $1.7 million and $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, we had approximately $185,000 in tax exempt income, compared to approximately $174,000 in tax exempt income for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Our effective income tax rates were 23.7% and 23.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

We recorded income tax expense of $2.8 million and $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Our effective income tax rates were 23.6% and 23.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Asset Quality
Non-performing assets totaled $2.8 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $2.0 million at December 31, 2021. We had two non-performing non-residential loans secured by the same property to one borrower that are on non-accrual and in foreclosure due to a maturity default at June 30, 2022 compared to no non-performing loans at December 31, 2021. Our ratio of non-performing assets to total assets remained low at 0.23% at June 30, 2022 and at 0.16% at December 31, 2021.

Based on a review of the loans that were in the loan portfolio at June 30, 2022, management believes that the allowance for loan losses is maintained at a level that represents its best estimate of inherent losses in the loan portfolio that were both probable and reasonably estimable.

The Company’s allowance for loan losses totaled $5.5 million, or 0.53% of total loans as of June 30, 2022, compared to $5.2 million, or 0.54% of total loans as of December 31, 2021.

Capital
The Company’s total stockholder’s equity to assets was 20.98% as of June 30, 2022. At June 30, 2022, the Company had the ability to borrow $24.1 million from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York.

The Bank’s capital position remains strong relative to current regulatory requirements and the Bank is considered a well-capitalized institution under the Prompt Corrective Action framework.
