TEANECK, N.J., November 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bogota Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: BSBK) (the "Company"), the holding company for Bogota Savings Bank (the "Bank"), reported net income for the three months ended September 30, 2021 of $1.0 million, compared to net income of $956,000 for the comparable prior year period. The Company reported net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 of $5.5 million compared the net income of $1.0 million for the comparable prior year period. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded a bargain purchase gain of $1.9 million and merger-related expenses of $392,000, both associated with the acquisition of Gibraltar Bank. The Company contributed cash and stock with a value of $2.9 million ($2.1 million after-tax) to the Bogota Charitable Foundation during the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Excluding the bargain purchase gain and the merger-related expenses in 2021 and the contribution to the charitable foundation in 2020, net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 was $3.9 million and $3.1 million, respectively. 1

On January 15, 2020, the Company became the holding company for the Bank when it completed the reorganization of the Bank into a two-tier mutual holding company form of organization. In connection with the reorganization, the Company sold 5,657,735 shares of common stock at a price of $10 per share, for gross proceeds of $56.6 million. The Company also issued 263,150 shares of common stock and $250,000 in cash to Bogota Savings Bank Charitable Foundation, Inc., and issued 7,236,640 shares of common stock to Bogota Financial, MHC, its New Jersey-chartered mutual holding company.

On February 28, 2021, the Company completed its acquisition of Gibraltar Bank and, as part of the transaction, the Company issued 1,267,916 shares of its common stock to Bogota Financial, MHC. The conversion and consolidation of data processing platforms, systems and customer files was completed in August 2021. The merger added three branches to the Bank’s network. In the third quarter of 2021, the Bank opened a new branch in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, which will also include additional offices for staff.

Other Financial Highlights:

  • Total assets increased $94.1 million, or 12.7%, to $835.0 million from $740.9 million at December 31, 2020, primarily due to the assets acquired from the Gibraltar Bank acquisition.

  • Net loans increased $22.2 million, or 4.0%, to $579.9 million at September 30, 2021 from $557.7 million at December 31, 2020.

  • Total deposits were $591.2 million, increasing $89.2 million, or 17.8%, as compared to $502.0 million at December 31, 2020, primarily due to acquiring $81.4 million in deposits from Gibraltar Bank acquisition.

  • Return on average assets was 0.91% for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 compared to 0.19% for the corresponding period of 2020. Without the bargain purchase gain and merger-related expenses in 2021 and the charitable foundation contribution in 2020, the return on average assets would have been 0.65%1 and 0.55%1 for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

  • Return on average equity was 5.20% for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 compared to 1.11% for the corresponding period of 2020. Without the bargain purchase gain and merger-related expenses in 2021 and the charitable foundation contribution in 2020, the return on average equity would have been 3.74%2 and 3.25%2 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Joseph Coccaro, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the third quarter, we completed the integration of Gibraltar Bank, including a successful system conversion in August. In the third quarter, we opened our Hasbrouck Heights branch which is our sixth branch location and contains additional office space for the Bank. The Bank held its grand opening of the new branch on August 4th and has seen over $10.0 million in deposits as of the end of the quarter."

"We are pleased with our continued strategy to expand our loan portfolio and the positive overall impacts of doing so on assets and income. We continue our efforts to expand our market presence, improve and expand our technology platform and offerings and manage our interest rate risk."

Mr. Coccaro further stated, "We are pleased with our results for the first nine months and we continue to enjoy strong credit quality as non-performing loans and criticized assets remain very low. We continue to see strong growth in rates resulting in our net interest margin rising 56 basis points on a year over year quarterly comparison. We have finished a second round of SBA PPP loans and look forward to continuing to serve our communities going forward. The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s operations was not material during 2021. Our loan deferrals are down to one residential loan as of September 30, 2021."

Paycheck Protection Program

As a qualified Small Business Administration lender, the Company was automatically authorized to originate loans under the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"). During 2020, the Company received and processed 113 PPP applications totaling $10.5 million. The Company participated in the second round of PPP loans and during 2021, the Company received and processed 54 PPP applications totaling $6.9 million.

COVID

The Company has provided assistance to individuals and small business clients directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by allowing borrowers to modify their loans to defer principal and/or interest payments. Through December 31, 2020, the Company granted 172 loan modifications totaling $67.9 million. As of September 30, 2021 one residential loan totaling $117,000 is still on deferral.

Income Statement Analysis

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020

Net income increased by $86,000, or 9.0%, to $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from net income of $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was due to increases in net interest income of $1.5 million and non-interest income of $266,000 offset by increases in non-interest expense of $1.4 million and income tax expense of $280,000.

Interest income on cash and cash equivalents decreased $15,000, or 31.6%, to $33,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $48,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 due to a 16 basis point decrease in the average yield on cash and cash equivalents from 0.29% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 to 0.13% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 due to the lower interest rate environment. The decrease was offset by a $34.6 million increase in the average balance of cash and cash equivalents to $101.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $66.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, reflecting excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth.

Interest income on loans increased $576,000, or 10.7%, to $6.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $5.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 due to a 39 basis point increase in the average yield on loans from 3.66% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 to 4.05% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 offset by a $1.7 million decrease in the average balance of loans to $584.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $586.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in the average balance of loans reflected a higher repayment rate of residential loans.

Interest income on securities increased $43,000, or 11.4%, to $424,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $381,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 due to a $24.2 million increase in the average balance of securities to $88.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $64.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, reflecting investments with excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth, offset by a 46 basis point decrease in the average yield from 2.37% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 to 1.91% for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Interest expense on interest-bearing deposits decreased $796,000, or 43.3%, to $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was due primarily to a 75 basis point decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing deposits to 0.75% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.50% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in the average cost of deposits was due to the lower interest rate environment and an increase in the average balance of lower-cost transaction accounts and a decrease in the average balance of higher cost certificates of deposit. This decrease was offset by a $62.0 million increase in the average balance of deposits to $548.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $486.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings decreased $103,000, or 21.8%, from $472,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 to $369,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The decrease was due to a decrease in the average cost of borrowings of 21 basis points to 1.52% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.73% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 due to the lower interest rate environment and a decrease in the average balance of borrowings of $15.0 million to $96.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $108.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

We recorded a provision for loan losses of $25,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020. Lower balances in residential loans, a more positive economic environment and continued strong asset quality metrics were the reasons for the low provision during the three months ended September 30, 2021. The Bank continues to have a low level of delinquent and non-accrual loans in the portfolio, as well as no charge-offs. Non-performing assets were $1.9 million, or 0.33% of total assets, at September 30, 2021. The allowance for loan losses was $2.2 million, or 0.37% of loans outstanding and 114.2% of nonperforming loans, at September 30, 2021.

Non-interest income increased by $266,000, or 246.5%, to $374,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $108,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was due to $67,000 higher income on bank owned life insurance due to the purchase of $8.0 million of bank-owned life insurance and a $127,000 gain on sale of $4.3 million residential loans during the three months ended September 30, 2021.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, non-interest expense increased $1.4 million to $3.8 million, over the comparable 2020 period. Salaries and employee benefits increased $698,000, or 52.5%, attributable to adding the new Gibraltar employees. Data processing expense increased $75,000, or 41.0%, due to higher data processing expense from maintaining two core systems until the date processing conversion was completed in August 2021. Professional fees decreased $110,000, or 46.3%, due in part to lower legal and merger expenses. The increase of other general operating expenses was mainly due to increase occupancy costs for the acquired Gibraltar Bank branches and the branch location in Hasbrouck Heights which opened in August.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020

Net income increased by $4.5 million to $5.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from net income of $1.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was due to increases in net interest income of $4.5 million, a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $363,000 and an increase in non-interest income of $2.2 million, offset by increases in non-interest expense of $1.2 million and income tax expense of $1.4 million.

Interest income on cash and cash equivalents decreased $280,000, or 70.2%, to $119,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $399,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 due to a 65 basis point decrease in the average yield on cash and cash equivalents from 0.81% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 to 0.16% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 due to the lower interest rate environment. The decrease was offset by a $31.7 million increase in the average balance of cash and cash equivalents to $97.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $65.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, reflecting excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth.

Interest income on loans increased $1.4 million, or 8.8%, to $17.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $15.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 due to a $22.8 million increase in the average balance of loans to $585.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $562.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in the average balance of loans reflected our continued efforts to increase our loan originations and the loans acquired from Gibraltar Bank. The increase was supplemented by a 18 basis point increase in the average yield on loans from 3.73% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 to 3.91% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 due to a higher rate environment when comparing the two periods.

Interest income on securities increased $270,000, or 22.3%, to $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 due to a $16.0 million increase in the average balance of securities to $81.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $65.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 offset by a 5 basis point decrease in the average yield from 2.51% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 to 2.46% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, reflecting investments with excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth.

Interest expense on interest-bearing deposits decreased $2.8 million, or 45.8%, to $3.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $6.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease was due primarily to 91 basis point decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing deposits to 0.85% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.76% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in the average cost of deposits was due to the lower interest rate environment and an increase in the average balance of lower-cost transaction accounts and a decrease in the average balance of higher cost certificates of deposit. This decrease was offset by a $60.7 million increase in the average balance of deposits to $530.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $469.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings decreased $302,000, or 20.4%, from $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 to $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the lower interest rate environment, as the average cost of borrowings decreased 34 basis point to 1.55% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.89% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Net interest income increased $4.5 million, or 44.8%, to $14.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $10.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase reflected a 75 basis point increase in our net interest rate spread to 2.33% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.58% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Our net interest margin increased 60 basis points to 2.50% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from 1.90% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

We recorded a credit for loan losses of $88,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a provision for loan losses of $275,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Lower balances in residential loans, a more positive economic environment and continued strong asset quality metrics were the reasons for the credit during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The Bank continues to have a low level of delinquent and non-accrual loans in the portfolio, as well as no charge-offs.

Non-interest income increased by $2.2 million or 223.6%, to $3.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $997,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase was due to $1.9 million bargain purchase gain for the Gibraltar merger, a $647,000 gain on sale of $20.0 million residential loans sold during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, offset by $547,000 lower income on bank owned life insurance as last year the Bank collected death proceeds.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, non-interest expense increased $1.2 million to $10.8 million, over the comparable 2020 period. Salaries and employee benefits increased $1.8 million, or 47.8%, attributable to adding the new Gibraltar employees, additional branch offices and normal merit increases. Data processing expense increased $284,000, or 57.6%, due to higher data processing expense from maintaining two core systems until the data processing conversion was completed in August. Professional fees decreased $47,000, or 7.2%, due to lower legal and consulting fees. Merger expenses were $392,000 in 2021 associated with the Gibraltar Bank acquisition. The increase of other general operating expenses was mainly due to increase occupancy costs for the acquired Gibraltar Bank branches and the branch location in Hasbrouck Heights, which opened in August. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020 the Bank made a $2.9 million contribution to the Bogota Charitable Foundation and there was no contribution for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Average Balance Sheets and Related Yields and Rates

The following tables present information regarding average balances of assets and liabilities, the total dollar amounts of interest income and dividends from average interest-earning assets, the total dollar amounts of interest expense on average interest-bearing liabilities, and the resulting annualized average yields and costs. The yields and costs for the periods indicated are derived by dividing income or expense by the average balances of assets or liabilities, respectively, for the periods presented. Average balances have been calculated using daily balances. Nonaccrual loans are included in average balances only. Loan fees are included in interest income on loans and are not material.
