    Robert F. Mangano, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated “Our second quarter of 2017 financial results reflected several important operating fundamentals. While our total loans were similar to the balance last June, we have generated significant growth in commercial real estate and construction loans of over $86 million during the last twelve months. Offsetting this growth was a $64 million decrease in warehouse loans compared to last year as a result of lower residential mortgage refinancing activity due to the higher interest rates in the first half of 2017. Mr. Mangano added, “The financial benefit of the higher short-term interest rate environment and our asset sensitive interest rate position is evident in the positive effect on net interest income and our net interest margin in the second quarter of 2017.”

    Mr. Mangano continued, “We continue to focus on improving our customers’ experiences by enhancing and expanding our internet and mobile delivery channel. We have recently revamped our website to improve customers’ ease of access to our products and services, including online deposit account opening, and launched our online residential mortgage loan origination platform, Momentum Mortgage powered by 1st Constitution Bank, to provide a more convenient and paperless borrowing experience. We are excited about the potential of these recent actions.”

    Discussion of Financial Results

    Net income was $1.9 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $2.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016. The increase in the yield on loans and the increase in earning assets were the primary drivers of a $651,000 increase in net interest income. Higher residential lending activity produced $25.6 million of closed loans and $24.9 million of loan sales, which generated a net increase in gains on sales of loans of $271,000 and contributed to the $230,000 increase in non-interest income for the second quarter of 2017 compared to the second quarter of 2016. The combined increase in revenue was more than offset by a $150,000 provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2017 compared to a $100,000 credit (negative) provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2016 and a $1.3 million increase in non-interest expenses for the second quarter of 2017 compared to the second quarter of 2016. As a result, net income for the second quarter of 2017 declined $395,000, or 17.1%, from $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2016.

    Net interest income was $9.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 and increased $651,000, or 7.6%, compared to net interest income of $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2016. Total interest income was $10.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $9.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. This increase was primarily due to the increase in the yield on loans and the increase of $10.8 million in average loans, reflecting growth primarily of commercial real estate and construction loans.  This was partially offset by declines in the average balances of mortgage warehouse and commercial business loans. Average interest-earning assets were $961.7 million with a yield of 4.53% for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $922.5 million with a yield of 4.41% for the second quarter of 2016. The higher yield on average interest-earning assets for the second quarter of 2017 reflected primarily the higher yield earned on the loan portfolio. The 100 basis point increase in the Federal Reserve’s targeted federal funds rate and the corresponding increase in the Prime Rate since December of 2015 have had a positive effect on the yields of construction, commercial business, SBA, home equity and warehouse loans with variable interest rate terms in the second quarter of 2017.

    Interest expense on average interest-bearing liabilities was $1.34 million, with an interest cost of 0.74%, for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $1.26 million, with an interest cost of 0.71%, for the second quarter of 2016. The $83,000 increase in interest expense on interest-bearing liabilities for the second quarter of 2017 reflected primarily higher deposit interest costs due to higher short-term market interest rates in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the second quarter of 2016 and an increase of $13.6 million in average interest-bearing liabilities.

    The net interest margin increased to 3.97% for the second quarter of 2017 compared to 3.86% for the second quarter of 2016 due primarily to the higher yield on average interest-earning assets.

    The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $150,000 for the second quarter of 2017 compared to a credit (negative) provision for loan losses of $100,000 for the second quarter of 2016 due primarily to the growth and change in the mix of loans in the loan portfolio. The credit (negative) provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2016 was due primarily to net recoveries of $280,000 in that quarter.

    At June 30, 2017, total loans were $762.6 million and the allowance for loan losses was $7.7 million, or 1.01% of total loans, compared to total loans of $761.6 million and an allowance for loan losses of $7.5 million, or 0.98% of total loans, at June 30, 2016. Management believes that the current economic and operating conditions are generally positive, which also were considered in management's evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses.

    Non-interest income was $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of $230,000, compared to $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2016. This increase was due primarily to an increase of $271,000 in gains on sales of loans in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the second quarter of 2016. In the second quarter of 2017, $24.9 million of residential mortgages were sold and $820,000 of gains were recorded compared to $14.5 million of residential mortgage loans sold and $308,000 of gains recorded in the second quarter of 2016. The increase in residential mortgage loans closed and sold was due primarily to higher residential mortgage lending activity as the result of the new residential mortgage lending team that joined the Bank in August 2016. In the second quarter of 2017, $2.1 million of SBA loans were sold and gains of $198,000 were recorded compared to $4.6 million of SBA loans sold and gains of $439,000 recorded in the second quarter of 2016. SBA guaranteed commercial lending activity and loan sales vary from period to period and the lower level of activity is due primarily to the timing of loan originations. The pipeline of approved and committed SBA loans was $3.7 million with another $18.5 million of loans in process at June 30, 2017.  

    Non-interest expenses were $8.1 million for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of $1.3 million, or 19.0%, compared to $6.8 million for the second quarter of 2016. Salaries and employee benefits expense increased $836,000, or 19.5%, in the second quarter of 2017 due primarily to increases of $322,000 in commissions paid to residential loan officers, $246,000 of salaries for additional commercial loan and residential mortgage personnel and $93,000 in share-based compensation expense. Merit increases, increases in employer payroll taxes and employee benefits expenses comprised the balance of the increase. Full time equivalent employees (“FTE”) increased to 185 in the second quarter of 2017 compared to 175 in the second quarter of 2016. Commission expense increased due to the higher volume of residential mortgages originated and sold in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the second quarter of 2016. Occupancy costs decreased $15,000, or 1.8%, due primarily to the closing of a branch office at the end of the first quarter of 2017. Data processing expenses increased to $326,000 in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $314,000 for the second quarter of 2016. FDIC insurance expense declined $25,000, or 23.8%, due to a lower assessment rate that reflected the Bank’s improvement in asset quality and financial performance and lower assessment rates for community banks. OREO expense was insignificant due to the low amount of OREO assets. Other operating expenses increased $514,000 due primarily to a decrease of $288,000 in net deferred loan origination costs compared to the second quarter of 2016. In the first quarter of 2017, management implemented a refined methodology utilized to estimate loan origination costs, which, in combination with a lower level of loan origination activity, resulted in a lower amount of deferred costs. Increases of $143,000 in consulting expense, primarily for marketing and loan collection costs, $56,000 in legal expense, primarily for loan collection and related litigation costs, and $23,000 in internal and external professional audit fees also contributed to the increase in other operating expenses for the second quarter of 2017 compared to the second quarter of 2016.

    Income tax expense was $841,000 for the second quarter of 2017, resulting in an effective tax rate of 30.5%, compared to income tax expense of $1.1 million, which resulted in an effective tax rate of 32.5%, for the second quarter of 2016. Income tax expense decreased primarily due to the decrease in pre-tax income.  The effective tax rate decreased due to the higher percentage of the net amount of tax-exempt interest income and income on bank-owned life insurance as compared to pre-tax income.

    At June 30, 2017, the allowance for loan losses was $7.7 million compared to $7.5 million at December 31, 2016. As a percentage of total loans, the allowance was 1.01% at June 30, 2017 compared to 1.03% at December 31, 2016. The increase in the allowance for loan losses reflects the increase in loans and the change in the mix of loans since the end of 2016.

    Total assets increased $33.9 million to $1.07 billion at June 30, 2017 from $1.04 billion at December 31, 2016 due primarily to a $37.8 million increase in total loans and an increase of $7.3 million in investment securities, which were partially offset by a decrease of $11.2 million in loans held for sale. The increase in assets was funded primarily by a $29.9 million increase in deposits and a $4.0 million increase in shareholders’ equity. Total portfolio loans at June 30, 2017 were $762.6 million compared to $724.8 million at December 31, 2016. The increase in loans was due primarily to an increase of $43.5 million in commercial real estate loans and a $20.4 million increase in construction loans, which were partially offset by a $15.9 million decrease in mortgage warehouse loans, a $5.4 million decrease in commercial business loans and a $2.8 million decrease in residential mortgage loans. The decline in mortgage warehouse loans reflects primarily the higher mortgage interest rates in the first and second quarters of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016, which reduced the volume of residential mortgage loan refinancing activity compared to the same period of 2016. The decline in residential mortgage loan refinancing activity more than offset the increase in home purchase financing activity during the period that was financed by the Bank’s warehouse loans to mortgage banking customers.

    Total deposits at June 30, 2017 were $864.4 million compared to $834.5 million at December 31, 2016, primarily reflecting the growth in core deposits. Non-interest-bearing demand deposits increased $18.8 million, interest-bearing demand deposits increased $14.1 million and savings deposits increased $2.7 million, which were partially offset by a decrease of $5.7 million in time deposits.

    Regulatory capital ratios for the Company and the Bank continue to reflect a strong capital position. Under current regulatory capital standards, the Company’s common equity Tier 1 to risk based assets (“CET1”), total risk-based capital, Tier I capital, and leverage ratios were 9.93%, 12.58%, 11.79% and 11.39%, respectively, at June 30, 2017. The Bank’s CET1, total risk-based capital, Tier 1 capital and leverage ratios were 11.52%, 12.32%, 11.52% and 11.13%, respectively, at June 30, 2017. The Company and the Bank are considered “well capitalized” under these capital standards.

    Asset Quality

    Non-performing loans were $6.1 million at June 30, 2017 compared to $7.4 million at March 31 2017 and $5.2 million at December 31, 2016. During the second quarter of 2017, $1.4 million of non-performing loans were resolved. During the first quarter of 2017, the Bank was notified that a shared national credit syndicated loan in which it was a participant in a $4.3 million facility had further deteriorated. The Bank downgraded the loan, which had a balance of $4.0 million, and placed it on non-accrual. In the second quarter, the borrower was recapitalized through an equity contribution by new investors and the loan was paid down by $906,000 and all interest was paid current. Management continues to monitor the borrower’s financial position. Principal payments of $148,000 for other non-accrual loans were recorded in the second quarter of 2017. In addition, a commercial mortgage loan with a balance of $190,000 was foreclosed and transferred to OREO, a residential mortgage loan in the amount of $150,000 was returned to accrual status and two loans in the amount of $37,000 were placed on non-accrual status.  

    There were no charge-offs of loans for the second quarter of 2017.  Recoveries of loans previously charged off were $7,000 for the second quarter of 2017. The allowance for loan losses was 127% of non-performing loans at June 30, 2017 compared to 144% of non-performing loans at December 31, 2016.

    Overall, management observed generally stable trends in loan quality, with non-performing loans to total loans of 0.80% and non-performing assets to total assets of 0.60% at June 30, 2017 compared to non-performing loans to total loans of 0.72% and non-performing assets to total assets of 0.52% at December 31, 2016.

    OREO at June 30, 2017 decreased to $356,000 from $431,000 at March 31, 2017. One commercial real estate property with a fair value of $190,000 was foreclosed and one residential property with a fair value of $270,000 was sold in the second quarter of 2017.
