GlobeNewswire Inc.

Record Net Interest Income, Loan Pipeline, and Core EPS

John R. Buran, President and CEO Commentary

UNIONDALE, N.Y., Oct. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Company reported third quarter 2021 GAAP EPS of $0.81, up 62.0% YoY, ROAA of 1.26% and ROAE of 15.42%. For the period, Core EPS of $0.88 increased 57.1% YoY with ROAA of 1.38% and ROAE of 16.88%. The strong results were from the successful implementation of our business strategy resulting in the sixth consecutive quarter of record net interest income, a record loan pipeline, and the second consecutive quarter of record core earnings.

“Loans, excluding SBA Payment Protection Program (“PPP”), were flat QoQ but increased 12% YoY. The Company’s loan pipeline increased 35% YoY and 23% QoQ to record levels as the metro New York City economy continues to normalize. Additionally, there have been eight announced or recently closed bank mergers in the Long Island market. The market has $328 billion of deposits and 18% or $60 billion involve a merger participant. As a leading community bank in this market, Flushing Bank is poised to benefit from merger disruption. The combination of an improving economy, broad based and record loan pipelines, and merger disruption should lead to positive loan growth into 2022.”

- John R. Buran, President and CEO

Sixth Consecutive Quarter of Record Net Interest Income; Favorable Outlook. Net interest income of $63.4 million increased 27% YoY and 4% QoQ. NIM expanded 20 bps to 3.34% from 3.14% in 2Q21, while Core NIM increased by 13 bps to 3.27% during the same period. NIM expansion was the result of cost of funds declining 4 bps, while asset yields increased 15 bps, with 8 bps due to the change in hedge fair values, increased purchase accounting accretion, and net prepayment penalty income. The funding mix improved with core deposits totaling 84% of average deposits and average borrowings declined 37% YoY. Weighted average rate on loan closings (ex PPP) rose 13 bps QoQ and the steeper yield curve should have a positive impact on net interest income over time.

Capital Target Achieved; Share Repurchase Activity Resumes. Following the closing of the Empire acquisition approximately one year ago, the Company announced the goal of a TCE ratio of 8% or better by the end of 2021. This target was achieved during 3Q21 even as the Company repurchased 285,643 shares of common stock at an average price of $22.42 per share. Our capital priorities remain to 1) profitabily grow the balance sheet, 2) return dividends to shareholders, and 3) opportunistically repurchase shares.

(See footnotes on next page)

(1) Ratios are presented on an annualized basis, where appropriate.
(2) Yields are calculated on the tax equivalent basis using the statutory federal income tax rate of 21% for the periods presented.
(3) Efficiency ratio, a non-GAAP measure, was calculated by dividing non-interest expense (excluding merger expense, OREO expense, prepayment penalty on borrowings, the net gain/loss from the sale of OREO and net amortization of purchase accounting adjustments) by the total of net interest income (excluding net gains and losses from fair value adjustments on qualifying hedges and net amortization of purchase accounting adjustments) and non-interest income (excluding life insurance proceeds, net gains and losses from the sale or disposition of securities, assets and fair value adjustments).

(4) Calculated by dividing stockholders’ equity by shares outstanding.
(5) Calculated by dividing tangible stockholders’ common equity, a non-GAAP measure, by shares outstanding. Tangible stockholders’ common equity is stockholders’ equity less intangible assets (goodwill, net of deferred taxes). See “Calculation of Tangible Stockholders’ Common Equity to Tangible Assets”.
(6) See “Calculation of Tangible Stockholders’ Common Equity to Tangible Assets”.
(7) Excludes performing non-accrual TDR loans.
