·30 min read

TEANECK, N.J., February 02, 2022--(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 December 31, 2021 of $2.0 million, compared to net income of $1.0 million for the comparable prior year period. The Company reported net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 of $7.5 million compared the net income of $2.1 million for the comparable prior year period. During the twelve months ended December 31, 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 twelve months ended December 31, 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 twelve months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 was $5.9 million and $4.3 million, respectively1.

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 contributed 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, 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 also include additional offices for staff.

Other Financial Highlights:

  • Total assets increased $96.5 million, or 13.0%, to $837.4 million from $740.9 million at December 31, 2020, primarily due to assets acquired from the Gibraltar Bank acquisition.

  • Net loans increased $12.5 million, or 2.2%, to $570.2 million at December 31, 2021 from $557.7 million at December 31, 2020.

  • Total deposits were $597.5 million, increasing $95.5 million, or 19.0%, as compared to $502.0 million at December 31, 2020, primarily due to acquiring deposits from the Gibraltar Bank acquisition.

  • Return on average assets was 1.23% for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2021 compared to 0.28% for 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 0.98%1 and 0.55%1 for the twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

  • Return on average equity was 7.06% for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2021 compared to 1.66% for 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 5.60%2 and 3.25%2 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Joseph Coccaro, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the year we completed the acquisition of Gibraltar Bank including a successful business system conversion. The Bank opened its sixth branch location in Hasbrouck Heights to provide banking services to the community and added additional office space for the Bank. The new branch was very successful with over $24.0 million in deposits by year end."

"We are pleased with our continued strategy to expand our loan portfolio and its positive overall impacts of on our 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 year as our core earnings have shown steady growth despite the COVID-19 disruption. We continue to enjoy strong credit quality as non-performing loans and criticized assets remain very low. We continue to see improvement in our net interest margin which rose 56 basis points year over year. We finished a second round of SBA PPP loans in 2021 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 December 31, 2021. I am pleased with the achievements during 2021 and I am confident that in 2022 we will see continued growth."

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. The Company had 168 PPP loans outstanding totaling $5.8 million at December 31, 2021

COVID

Income Statement Analysis

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020

Net income increased by $987,000, or 94.3%, to $2.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $1.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The increase was due to increases in net interest income of $1.2 million and non-interest income of $1.2 million offset by an increase in non-interest expense of $1.3 million.

Interest income on cash and cash equivalents decreased $14,000, or 27.5%, to $37,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $51,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2020 due to a 13 basis point decrease in the average yield on cash and cash equivalents from 0.27% for the three months ended December 31, 2020 to 0.14% for the three months ended December 31, 2021 due to the lower interest rate environment. The decrease was partially offset by a $33.1 million increase in the average balance of cash and cash equivalents to $106.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $73.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, reflecting excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth.

Interest income on loans increased $419,000, or 8.2%, to $5.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $5.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 due to a 17 basis point increase in the average yield on loans from 3.64% for the three months ended December 31, 2020 to 3.81% for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and a $16.0 million increase in the average balance of loans to $577.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $561.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The increase in the average balance of loans reflected the addition of Gibraltar loans.

Interest income on securities increased $86,000, or 23.3%, to $459,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $373,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2020 due to a $30.4 million increase in the average balance of securities to $98.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $67.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, reflecting the purchase of investments with excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth, offset by a 32 basis point decrease in the average yield from 2.19% for the three months ended December 31, 2020 to 1.87% for the three months ended December 31, 2021.

Interest expense on interest-bearing deposits decreased $652,000, or 41.6%, to $916,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $1.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The decrease was due primarily to a 65 basis point decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing deposits to 0.65% for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from 1.30% for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The decrease in the average cost of deposits was due to the lower interest rate environment and a larger increase in the average balance of lower-cost transaction accounts than the average balance of higher cost certificates of deposit. This decrease was offset by a $80.8 million increase in the average balance of deposits to $557.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $476.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020.

Interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings decreased $96,000, or 21.9%, from $438,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2020 to $342,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2021. The decrease was due to a decrease in the average cost of borrowings of 15 basis points to 1.56% for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from 1.71% for the three months ended December 31, 2020 due to the lower interest rate environment and a decrease in the average balance of borrowings of $14.7 million to $86.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $101.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020.

Net interest income increased $1.2 million, or 33.4%, to $4.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $3.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The increase reflected a 50 basis point increase in our net interest rate spread to 2.30% for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from 1.80% for the three months ended December 31, 2020. Our net interest margin increased 41 basis points to 2.44% for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from 2.03% for the three months ended December 31, 2020.

We recorded no provision for loan losses the three months ended December 31, 2021 and recorded a $75,000 credit for the three-month period ended December 31, 2020. Lower balances in residential loans, a more positive economic environment and continued strong asset quality metrics were the reasons for the absence of a provision for the three months ended December 31, 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 0.23% of total assets, at December 31, 2021. The allowance for loan losses was $2.2 million, or 0.38% of loans outstanding and 113.9% of nonperforming loans, at December 31, 2021.

Non-interest income increased by $1.2 million, or 1,067.4%, to $1.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 from $109,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The increase was due to $1.0 million higher income on bank owned life insurance due to the purchase of $8.0 million of bank-owned life insurance and $891,000 in death benefit proceeds on bank owned life insurance, and a $139,000 gain on sale of $4.7 million residential loans during the three months ended December 31, 2021.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021, non-interest expense increased $1.3 million to $3.7 million, over the comparable 2020 period. Salaries and employee benefits increased $798,000, or 59.5%, attributable to adding the new Gibraltar employees. Data processing expense increased $38,000, or 17.1%, due to higher data processing expense from the merger. Professional fees decreased $84,000, or 37.6%, 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 new branch location in Hasbrouck Heights, which opened in August.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020

Net income increased by $5.5 million to $7.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $2.1 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The increase was due to increases in net interest income of $5.7 million, a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $288,000 and an increase in non-interest income of $3.4 million, offset by increases in non-interest expense of $2.5 million and income tax expense of $1.4 million.

Interest income on cash and cash equivalents decreased $298,000, or 66.4%, to $151,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $449,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 due to a 50 basis point decrease in the average yield on cash and cash equivalents from 0.65% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 to 0.15% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 due to the lower interest rate environment. The decrease was offset by a $31.3 million increase in the average balance of cash and cash equivalents to $99.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $68.6 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, reflecting excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth.

Interest income on loans increased $1.8 million, or 8.6%, to $22.7 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $20.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 due to a $19.6 million increase in the average balance of loans to $583.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $563.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 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 19 basis point increase in the average yield on loans from 3.70% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 to 3.89% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

Interest income on securities increased $356,000, or 22.0%, to $2.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $1.6 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 due to a $20.2 million increase in the average balance of securities to $86.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $65.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 offset by a 16 basis point decrease in the average yield from 2.45% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 to 2.29% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, reflecting the purchase of investment securities at lower interest rates with excess liquidity as deposit growth exceeded loan growth.

Interest expense on interest-bearing deposits decreased $3.5 million, or 45.0%, to $4.3 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $7.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The decrease was due primarily to 85 basis point decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing deposits to 0.79% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from 1.64% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The decrease in the average cost of deposits was due to the lower interest rate environment and a larger increase in the average balance of lower-cost transaction accounts than the average balance of higher cost certificates of deposit. This decrease was offset by a $64.6 million increase in the average balance of deposits to $537.3 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $472.7 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020.

Interest expense on Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings decreased $397,000, or 20.7%, from $1.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 to $1.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the lower interest rate environment, as the average cost of borrowings decreased 27 basis point to 1.56% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from 1.83% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020.

Net interest income increased $5.7 million, or 23.6%, to $19.3 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $13.6 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The increase reflected a 70 basis point increase in our net interest rate spread to 2.33% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from 1.63% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. Our net interest margin increased 57 basis points to 2.50% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from 1.93% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020.

We recorded a credit for loan losses of $88,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 compared to a provision for loan losses of $200,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 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 twelve months ended December 31, 2020. 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 $3.4 million or 306.4%, to $4.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 from $1.1 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The increase was due to $2.0 million bargain purchase gain for the Gibraltar merger, a $786,000 gain on sale of $26.6 million residential loans sold during the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, and $409,000 higher income on bank owned life insurance due to the purchase of $8.0 million of bank-owned life insurance and collection of $891,000 death benefits proceeds on bank owned life insurance.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, non-interest expense increased $2.5 million to $14.5 million, over 2020. Salaries and employee benefits increased $2.6 million, or 50.9%, attributable to adding the new Gibraltar employees, additional branch offices and normal merit increases. Data processing expense increased $322,000, or 45.1%, due to higher data processing expense from maintaining two core systems until the data processing conversion was completed in August. Professional fees decreased $130,000, or 15.0%, 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 increased occupancy costs for the acquired Gibraltar Bank branches and the branch location in Hasbrouck Heights, which opened in August. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the Bank made a $2.9 million contribution to the Bogota Charitable Foundation and there was no contribution for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents from banks increased $24.7 million during the period primarily due to $19.6 million in repayments in residential loans and $19.3 million in cash from the Gibraltar Bank acquisition.

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.
