WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J., Oct. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Parke Bancorp, Inc. ("Parke Bancorp") (NASDAQ: "PKBK"), the parent company of Parke Bank, announced its operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Highlights for the third quarter and year-to-date September 30, 2018:

  • Net income available to common shareholders increased $2.2 million or 58.0% to $6.1 million, or $0.60 per basic common share and $0.56 per diluted common share for the third quarter of 2018, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $3.9 million, or $0.46 per basic common share and $0.38 per diluted common share for the same period in 2017.
                                                     
  • Net interest income increased 14.8% to $12.3 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $10.7 million for the same quarter of 2017.
                                                  
  • Net income available to common shareholders for the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period was $17.6 million or $1.88 per basic common share and $1.65 per diluted common share, compared to $10.4 million, or $1.25 per basic common share and $1.05 per diluted common share for  the year-to-date September 30, 2017 period, an increase in net income of $7.1 million or 68.5%.
  • Net interest income increased 17.3% to $34.9 million for the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period, compared to $29.7 million for the same period in 2017.

The following is a recap of the significant items that impacted the third quarter and the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period:

Interest income increased $3.2 million and $8.7 million for the third quarter and the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2017 primarily due to higher loan volumes and a higher yield on loans. Interest expense increased $1.6 million and $3.6 million for the third quarter of 2018 and the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2017, primarily due to higher deposit volumes and rates.

The provision for loan losses increased $100,000 for the third quarter of 2018 and decreased $800,000 for the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period compared to the same periods of 2017. The year to date decrease in the provision is primarily due to improving credit quality.

For the third quarter of 2018, non-interest income increased $1.1 million, with the increase  primarily attributable to the decrease in expenses related to the sale of Other Real Estate Owned ("OREO") and increased fee income from deposit accounts, partially offset by decrease in gains on the sale of SBA loans.  For the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period, non-interest income increased $1.6 million primarily due to increased fee incomes from deposit and loan accounts as well as decrease in expenses related to the sale of OREO.

Non-interest expense increased $322,000 for the third quarter of 2018 and $962,000 for the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period compared to the same periods of 2017, primarily due to an increase in compensation and occupancy costs reflecting the growth of the business.

Income tax expense increased $180,000 for the third quarter of 2018, and decreased $217,000 for the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period, compared to the same periods of last year. Income tax expenses reflected the combined effects of increased incomes for the quarter and the year-to-date September 30, 2018 period,  and the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted in December 2017. The effective tax rates for the quarter and year-to-date September 30, 2018 were 29.6% and 26.0%,  respectively compared to 36.9% and 36.8% for the same periods in 2017.

  • The investment securities portfolio decreased to $33.7 million at September 30, 2018, from $40.3 million at December 31, 2017, a decrease of $6.6 million or 16.3% primarily due to the payoffs of certain securities.

CEO outlook and commentary

Vito S. Pantilione, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parke Bancorp and Parke Bank, provided the following statement:

"The unemployment rate has reached a new low which is helping to support the strong growth in the economy. Most sectors are experiencing the growth of revenues, tax savings and increased earnings. However, the uncertainty of the continued trade war, with tariffs being implemented by China and the United States has created a volatile stock market, compounded by the continued increase in interest rates instituted by the Federal Reserve. Our Company's financial strength continues to grow with a 58% increase in earnings for the third quarter over the same period in 2017. The growth in earnings is primarily supported by our strong growth in loans that have increased 16.7% since the fiscal year ended 2017. Our continued focus on reducing non-performing assets resulted in  non performing loans decreasing to $3.1million from December 31, 2017 and OREO decreasing $2.2million  from the same period. Our careful control of our expenses combined with these factors produced very strong financial results for the third quarter and year to date."

This release may contain forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors; our ability to continue to generate strong net earnings; our ability to continue to reduce our nonperforming loans and delinquencies and the expenses associated with them; our ability to realize a high recovery rate on disposition of troubled assets; our ability to take advantage of opportunities in the improving economy and banking environment; our ability to continue to pay a dividend in the future; our ability to enhance shareholder value in the future; our ability to continue growing our Company and support our profitability; our ability to prudently expand our operations in our market and in new markets; our ability to tightly control expenses;
and our ability to continue to grow our loan portfolio, therefore, readers should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Parke Bancorp, Inc. does not undertake, and specifically disclaims, any obligations to publicly release the results of any revisions that may be made to any forward-looking statements to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of such circumstance.
