Revenue:


$22.8 million for Q3 2021

Total Assets:


$2.16 billion, increased 3.7% over December 31, 2020

Parke Bancorp, Inc. ("Parke Bancorp" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: "PKBK"), the parent company of Parke Bank, announced its operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Highlights for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021:

  • Net income available to common shareholders was $10.5 million, or $0.88 per basic common share and $0.87 per diluted common share, for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $4.0 million, or 60.6%, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $6.5 million, or $0.55 per basic common share and $0.55 per diluted common share, for the same quarter in 2020. The increase is primarily driven by an increase in net interest income, reduced loan loss provision, and higher non-interest income, partially offset by higher non-interest expense.

  • Net interest income increased 13.2% to $17.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $15.4 million for the same period in 2020.

  • Net income available to common shareholders was $30.7 million, or $2.58 per basic common share and $2.53 per diluted common share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $10.4 million, or 51.3%, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $20.3 million, or $1.71 per basic common share and $1.69 per diluted common share, for the same period in 2020. The increase is primarily driven by an increase in net interest income, reduced loan loss provision, and higher non-interest income, partially offset by higher non-interest expense.

  • Net interest income increased 15.0% to $52.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $45.5 million for the same period in 2020.

The following is a recap of the significant items that impacted the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 period:

Interest income decreased $0.3 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020, primarily due to a decrease in interest and fees on loans attributed to lower loan portfolio balances. For the year to date period ended September 30, 2021, interest income decreased $0.4 million from the same period in 2020, primarily driven by the impact of lower interest rates on average deposits held in the Federal Reserve Bank ("FRB"). The Federal Reserve Board reduced interest rates in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Interest expense decreased $2.3 million and $7.2 million for the third quarter of 2021 and year to date September 30, 2021, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2020, primarily due to lower interest rates on deposits.

The provision for loan losses decreased $2.4 million and $5.3 million for the third quarter of 2021 and year to date September 30, 2021, compared to the same periods in 2020. The decrease in the provision was primarily due to the increase in qualitative factors made in 2020 as a result of economic uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the third quarter of 2021, non-interest income increased $1.5 million, compared to the same period in 2020. For the year to date September 30, 2021, non-interest income increased $3.9 million compared to the same period in 2020. The increases were primarily attributable to an increase in service fees from deposit accounts related to our cannabis related businesses (CRB).

Non-interest expense increased $0.6 million and $2.4 million for the third quarter 2021 and year to date September 30, 2021, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2020, primarily due to an increase in professional fees related to our Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) remediation efforts, and various other expense categories as a result of the growth of the Company.

Income tax expense increased $1.4 million for the third quarter 2021 and $3.4 million for the year to date September 30, 2021, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2020. The effective tax rates for the third quarter of 2021 and for the year to date September 30, 2021 were 26.0% and 25.5%, respectively, compared to 25.8% for the same periods in 2020.

September 30, 2021 discussion of financial condition

  • Total assets increased to $2.16 billion at September 30, 2021, from $2.08 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $77.3 million, or 3.7%, primarily due to an increase in cash deposits with the Federal Reserve Bank, net of a decrease in loans receivable.

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $623.8 million at September 30, 2021, as compared to $458.6 million at December 31, 2020.

  • The investment securities portfolio increased to $24.6 million at September 30, 2021, from $21.1 million at December 31, 2020, an increase of $3.5 million, or 16.7%, primarily due to the purchase of $8.7 million of securities classified as held-to-maturity, net of pay downs of securities.

  • Gross loans decreased to $1.47 billion at September 30, 2021, from $1.57 billion at December 31, 2020, a decrease of $92.2 million or 5.9%.

  • Nonperforming loans at September 30, 2021 decreased to $4.5 million, representing 0.30% of total loans, a decrease of $4.2 million, from $8.7 million of nonperforming loans at December 31, 2020. OREO at September 30, 2021 was $1.8 million, an increase of $1.6 million compared to $139 thousand at December 31, 2020, primarily due to the repossession of one commercial property. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonperforming loans and OREO) represented 0.29% and 0.43% of total assets at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. Loans past due 30 to 89 days were $259 thousand at September 30, 2021, a decrease of $2.5 million from December 31, 2020.

  • The allowance for loan losses was $29.8 million at September 30, 2021, as compared to $29.7 million at December 31, 2020. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 2.02% and 1.90% at September 30, 2021 and at December 31, 2020, respectively. The ratio of allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans was 664.1% at September 30, 2021, compared to 340.2%, at December 31, 2020.

  • Total deposits were $1.78 billion at September 30, 2021, up from $1.59 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $188.8 million or 11.9% compared to December 31, 2020. Deposit growth was primarily due to an increase in non-interest bearing demand, savings, and time deposits.

  • Total borrowings were $133.8 million at September 30, 2021, a decrease of $133.4 million, compared to December 31, 2020, primarily due to the repayment of $90.0 million in advances from the Federal Reserve Bank PPP Liquidity Facility ("PPPLF") for the Small Business Administration ("SBA") PPP Loans, and $43.5 million in pay downs of Federal Home Loan Bank advances.

  • Total equity increased to $225.7 million at September 30, 2021, up from $202.6 million at December 31, 2020, an increase of $23.1 million, or 11.4%, primarily due to the retention of earnings.

CEO outlook and commentary

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

"Parke Bancorp continues to generate strong earnings with third quarter Net Income of $10.5 million, up over 60% from the same period in 2020. Net Income year to date is close to $31 million, up over 50% from the same period in 2020. Although our assets have grown 3.7% year to date, the growth has been driven by the excess liquidity in the market and held in cash. We continue to work hard to reduce our cost of deposits, which is reflected in the growth of our net interest income. Our outstanding loan portfolio went down, partly due to the SBA forgiveness of many of the PPP loans. The pandemic concerns and economic challenges continue to dictate caution in generating new loans."

"The COVID-19 pandemic continues to fuel uncertainty in the regional and national economy. Complications from vaccination requirements and reinstated COVID-19 public health restrictions have had an effect on employment and inflation. There is a concern that the current growth in inflation is not simply transitory but may possibly be a mainstay of the economy for a period of time. The Federal Reserve has already stated that they may need to move interest rates up in 2023 rather than 2024 as initially reported. Shortage of goods, including electronics and other critically important products that are stuck on cargo ships unable to be unloaded, is having a negative effect on the economy. The construction industry continues to be hit with skyrocketing costs of materials and manpower shortages causing cost overruns on many projects."

"One of the more concerning issues that is facing the banking industry is the pending legislation that includes the requirement of banks to track every $600 transaction of their customers' accounts. If enacted, this legislation will put an immense burden on all banks and drive up the cost of banking for our customers. In our view, this would be an unnecessary level of government intrusion into people's private lives and make banking services more expensive for the average customer."

"There are many clouds on the horizon, however we continue to maintain strict controls on our expenses, have a strong capital position and earnings, all critical to the financial strength of our Company."
