STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patriot National Bancorp, Inc. (“Patriot,” “Bancorp” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PNBK), the parent company of Patriot Bank, N.A. (the “Bank”), today announced a pretax loss of $1.7 million (net loss of $1.3 million), or $0.32 basic and diluted loss per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The six-month, year-to-date net loss is $2.4 million, or $0.60 per fully diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.34 per fully diluted shares, during the same period in the prior year. The 2020 results to date, reflect a higher loan loss provision the Bank has put in place as a precaution relating to COVID-19, along with lower net interest income and non-interest income, due to the lower market interest rates.The Bank continues to provide CARES Act payment relief on loan balances, now totaling approximately $223.2 million - predominately commercial real estate loans and commercial industrial loans.In the second quarter of 2020, total assets decreased 2% to $979.5 million, as of June 30, 2020, as compared to the first quarter of 2020. The Bank’s Net Loan portfolio decreased 3.3% or by $26.5 million, to $781.4 million, while Deposits decreased $20.1 million or 2.5%, to $783.1 million. This decrease in Deposits is reflective of a decline in the use of wholesale brokered deposits.Excluding that change in brokered deposits, total deposits to the institution actually increased $43 million (5%) for the quarter, reflecting success in Patriot’s new on-line national deposit initiative, which grew by $35 million during the second quarter of 2020, along with a simultaneous growth in regional retail branch banking deposits. This is all part of a strategic balance sheet repositioning designed to downsize and strengthen the Bank’s capital ratios and position the Company for a return to profitability.As far as the impact of COVID-19, Patriot has kept all branches open with customers re-directed to non-contact ATM’s and Live Banker ATMs as on-line banking services continue to be optimized with expanded customer call center staffing. Its multi-year investment to enhance customer’s technological banking experience has been well tested during the pandemic, as from January 1 to June 30, 2020, Patriot’s mobile deposits were up 163%, use of its mobile app banking was up 31%, monthly average log-ins rose 16% and the number of customers completely new to digital banking rose by 26%.Michael Carrazza, Patriot’s Chairman stated: “The past six months have been incredibly challenging to U.S. businesses and consumers, but we have capably managed through the pandemic, while strengthening our valued customer base. With strategic adjustments to our balance sheet, we believe we have initiated steps to bolster our capital position to bridge us through what we hope is the tail end of the pandemic and back to profitability. In addition, we have made numerous operating and staff changes to strengthen Patriot’s management team and improve operating efficiency. The latest change includes the recruitment of a seasoned community bank executive, Robert Russell, to lead Patriot as its new President/CEO. We have also enhanced our funding base through the closing of a $52 million pre-paid debit card transaction that was completed in mid-July. The benefits of this transaction will begin being reflected in the 3rd quarter.”Patriot President & CEO Robert Russell added: “I believe the Bank has established the right foundation for future growth and enhanced profitability. Patriot’s focus on organic growth of customer deposits is making an impact at the local branch level and our national on-line deposit gathering has also seen success. The Bank has invested in building strong customer relationships, a well-developed technology platform and intends to continue to leverage those activities. We received approval to compete in the pre-paid card business during July and we completed a transaction resulting in over $50 million in prepaid deposits which will have a positive impact on the Bank’s cost of funds. Patriot is committed to growing the SBA division and is focused on small business and commercial lending. We believe that the decisions we are making today as an organization will position the Bank for the future, especially as the local and national economies recover from the impact of the pandemic.”Financial Results: As of June 30, 2020, total assets were $979.5 million, as compared to $999.6 million at March 31, 2020 and $977.8 million at June 30, 2019. Net loans receivable totaled $781.4 million, as compared to $807.9 million at March 31, 2020 and $803.3 million at June 30, 2019. Deposits totaled $783.1 million at June 30, 2020, as compared to $803.2 million at March 31, 2020 and $767.6 million at June 30, 2019.The decline in loans and total assets represents the intentional downsizing of the Bank’s balance sheet as the current economic uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic are assessed. The Company continues to originate loans, but at a slower pace than in the past, and has seen loan maturities and loan payoffs outpace loan originations during the first six months of 2020.While total deposits declined $20 million during the quarter, this solely reflects a decline in wholesale brokered deposits, which declined $64 million during the quarter due in part to the decline in loan volumes. Excluding the change in brokered deposits, total deposits increased $43 million (5%) for the quarter, reflecting the success of the Bank’s on-line national deposit initiative, which grew by $35 million during the second quarter, along with a growth in retail branch banking deposits.Net interest income was $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, a decrease of 10.1% from the first quarter of 2020, and a decline of 14.1% from the second quarter of 2019. The year-to-date net interest income was $12.0 million, a decrease of 7.5% over the year-to-date June 2019.Net interest margin was 2.46% in the second quarter of 2020, as compared to 2.72% in the first quarter of 2020 and 2.96% in the second quarter of 2019.This decline reflects the impact of lower interest rates connected with the 1.50% decline in market interest rates in late first quarter of 2020 connected to the COVID-19 pandemic. Asset yields were impacted by those changes in the second quarter while retail and brokered deposit rates have declined at a slower pace. Compared to the prior year, net interest income was also negatively impacted by an increase in the rate paid on FHLB borrowings associated with the conversion of certain borrowings from a low variable teaser rate to higher fixed rate.The provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2020 was $910,000, as compared to $804,000 in the first quarter of 2020 and $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2019. The provision for loan losses in 2020 was primarily due to loan charge-offs and an additional reserve attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic. The provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2019 was primarily due to a large provision booked in the quarter associated with a single commercial loan charge off. The Allowance for Loan losses now totals 1.41% of total loans compared with 1.33% in the first quarter of 2020 and 1.04% a year ago.Noninterest income was $389,000 in the second quarter of 2020, 7.6% lower than the first quarter of 2020, and 48.7% lower than the second quarter of 2019. The year-to-date non-interest income was $810,000, a 46.1% decrease over year-to-date non-interest income as of June 30, 2019. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to lower realized gains on the sale of SBA loans associated with delays in executing the sale of those loans.Noninterest expense was $6.9 million in the second quarter of 2020, 6.5% lower than the first quarter of 2020, and 2.4% higher than the second quarter of 2019. The year-to-date non-interest expense was $14.3 million, 8.2% higher than the prior year. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily driven by an increase of $714,000 in salaries and benefits reflecting the build-up of staffing in the SBA business during the second half of 2019 and lower loan origination cost deferrals due to the lower volume of loan originations.The income tax benefit was $446,000 in the second quarter of 2020, representing an effective tax rate of 26%.As of June 30, 2020, shareholders’ equity was $64.2 million, as compared to $64.6 million at March 31, 2020. Patriot’s book value per share was $16.30 at June 30, 2020, as compared to $16.43 at March 31, 2020. The Bank’s capital ratios continue to be strong, maintaining its “well capitalized” regulatory status. As of June 30, 2020, the Bank’s Tier 1 leverage ratio was 9.03%, Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 10.52% and total risk-based capital ratio was 11.77%.Patriot suspended its quarterly dividend and expects to resume when the current economic uncertainties are settled.Patriot Bank is headquartered in Stamford and operates 9 branch locations: in Scarsdale, NY; and Darien, Fairfield, Greenwich, Milford, Norwalk, Orange, Stamford, Westport, CT with Express Banking locations at Bridgeport/ Housatonic Community College, downtown New Haven and Trumbull at Westfield Mall.
