Timothy T. O'Dell, President and CEO, commented, "I am very pleased to report that 2020 was both a transformational and breakout performance year for CFBank, with our 2020 net income more than tripling versus the previous year.

Full year 2020 PPNR of $47.2 million and period end assets of $1.5 billion, allowed us to make accelerated investments in future growth which included expanding our commercial bank and expanding our regional metro market presence and teams. Additionally, we fortified our ALLL reserves, which were 2.15% of Loans at December 31, 2020 (excluding SBA and other Government Guaranteed Loans).

Our CFBank Team effectively navigated COVID, remaining highly productive and producing record performance results including full year PPNR ROA of 4.12% and PPNR ROE of 51.08%; along with growing noninterest-bearing deposits by 73%.

Credit quality remains strong with low nonperforming loans as well as low levels of delinquencies.

We enter this new year with solid Commercial Loan and Deposit Pipelines, having also added during 2020 seasoned and proven commercial lenders, business development and sales talent to our regional metro market teams, which also includes product specialists in cash management and equipment financing.

Key areas of focus for 2021 will include continuing to execute upon our fundamentals, building upon our successful sales and growth strategies, along with leveraging our mortgage platform for customer acquisition leading to enhanced cross-selling opportunities. Our assets ended the year at $1.5 billion and our Team has its sights firmly set on attaining $2 billion.

We believe that CFBank is uniquely positioned. Our business model combines a full service Ohio focused commercial bank with a national mortgage lending platform which generated more than $2 billion in mortgage volume during 2020.

We are just Revving Up!"

Robert E. Hoeweler, Chairman of the Board, added: "The Bank has carefully and successfully navigated the waters of the most extraordinary year 2020. With all the headwinds faced by American commerce, our team came together to craft a record year, it was truly amazing and we are proud of the team's commitment and performance. As our CEO says…We are just revving up!"

Allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL). The allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $17.0 million at December 31, 2020, and increased $9.9 million, or 138.5%, from $7.1 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in the ALLL is due to $10.9 million in the provision for loan and lease losses expense, partially offset by net charge-offs of $1.0 million during the year ended December 31, 2020. The ratio of the ALLL to total loans was 1.87% at December 31, 2020, compared to 1.06% at December 31, 2019. The ratio of the ALLL to total loans, excluding loan balances subject to SBA guarantees, was 2.15% at December 31, 2020, compared to 1.07% at December 31, 2019.

Deposits. Deposits totaled $1.1 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $366.7 million, or 49.1%, from $746.3 million at December 31, 2019. The increase is due to a $283.6 million increase in interest-bearing deposit accounts and an $83.1 million increase in noninterest-bearing account balances. Interest-bearing deposit accounts increased to $914.4 million at December 31, 2020, from $630.8 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in interest-bearing accounts is primarily attributed to a $194.3 million increase in certificate of deposit account balances, a $70.1 million increase in money market account balances, and a $16.4 million increase in interest-bearing checking account balances. The increase in certificate of deposit account balances was due to increases in retail, brokered, and listing service certificates of deposits. The increases in retail certificate of deposits and money market account balances were primarily due to increases in customer relationships and balances from on-going sales and marketing activities. The increase in interest-bearing checking is primarily related to the balances in the Insured Cash Sweep (ICS) programs offered through Promontory Interfinancial Network.

Stockholders' equity. Stockholders' equity totaled $110.2 million at December 31, 2020, an increase of $29.5 million, or 36.6%, from $80.7 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in total stockholders' equity was primarily attributed to net income.

Sale of Columbiana County Branches. On December 29, 2020, CFBank and Consumers National Bank ("Consumers") announced the signing of a branch purchase and assumption agreement pursuant to which CFBank will sell to Consumers its Wellsville, Ohio drive-up branch and its Calcutta, Ohio branch. The purchase and assumption agreement provides for the transfer by CFBank to Consumers of the land, buildings and other associated assets of the two branches, approximately $100 million in deposits, and certain loans and other interest earning assets. In exchange, Consumers will pay to CFBank the net book value of the land, building and associated assets of the branches, the par value of the earning assets, and a deposit premium equal to 1.75% of the average daily deposits for the 30 days preceding closing. The sale of the branches to Consumers is subject to regulatory approval and satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second calendar quarter of 2021. The divestiture of CFBank's two branches in Columbiana County is consistent with our strategic business plan and the overarching objective to deploy capital into areas that yield the greatest opportunity to strengthen franchise value. We expect that the sale of the Columbiana County branches will further allow us to gain greater efficiencies in our core markets and to focus our sales efforts in those communities.
