"2016 reflected another strong year for our company as we built on the organization we've worked to create both organically and through acquisition. In addition to adding customers and growing loans and deposits we launched our ‘Believe iN Beyond' initiative. This created a company stronger and better prepared for further expansion. We also implemented financial and organizational changes to improve financial strength, risk management processes and operating structure providing a platform more appropriate for a bank approaching $5 billion in assets. All of this was accomplished while achieving record earnings and delivering strong results," noted Kevin M. O'Connor, President and CEO.

Net Earnings and Returns
Net income for the quarter was $9.2 million or $.50 per diluted share, compared to $8.0 million or $.46 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2015.  Returns on average assets and equity for the fourth quarter of 2016 were .93% and 9.50%, compared to .88% and 9.27% in 2015, respectively.  Return on average tangible common equity for the fourth quarter of 2016 was 13.43% compared to 13.33% in 2015.  Net income for the year ended December 2016 was $35.5 million or $2.00 per diluted share, compared to $21.1 million or $1.43 per diluted share in 2015.  Returns on average assets and equity for the full year 2016 were .92% and 9.82%, compared to .71% and 7.91% in 2015, respectively.  Return on average tangible common equity for 2016 was 14.21% compared to 10.23% in 2015.  The significant increases in net income and related returns for 2016 over 2015 relate primarily to the acquisition of CNB in June 2015.

Core(1) net income reflects the quarterly and full year results adjusted for certain costs, net of tax, primarily related to the CNB acquisition.  Core net income for the fourth quarter was $9.1 million or $.50 per diluted share, compared to $8.5 million or $.49 per diluted share, for the same period in 2015.  Core returns on average assets and equity for the fourth quarter of 2016 were .92% and 9.43%, compared to .94% and 9.90% in 2015, respectively.  Core return on average tangible common equity for the fourth quarter of 2016 was 13.60% compared to 14.56% in 2015. Core net income for the full year 2016 was $35.6 million or $2.00 per diluted share, compared to $27.3 million or $1.85 per diluted share, for the same period in 2015.  Core returns on average assets and equity for the full year 2016 were .93% and 9.87%, compared to .92% and 10.23% in 2015, respectively.  Core return on average tangible common equity for the full year 2016 was 14.57% compared to 13.47% in 2015.

Interest income increased $3.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 over the same period in 2015 as average earning assets increased by $258.5 million or 8%, due primarily to loan growth, and the net interest margin increased to 3.41% from 3.39%. Interest income increased $31.5 million for the full year 2016 over 2015 as average earning assets increased by $779.2 million or 29% while the net interest margin decreased to 3.48% from 3.57%. The increase in average earning assets year over year reflects the full year effect of assets acquired from CNB as well as organic growth in loans and securities.  The decrease in the net interest margin reflects the higher costs of borrowings associated with the $80 million in subordinated debentures issued in September 2015 and higher overall borrowing costs due to the Fed Funds rate increase in December 2015.  

The provision for loan losses was $1.4 million for the 2016 fourth quarter, $.4 million higher than the fourth quarter of 2015 and $5.6 million for the full year 2016, $1.6 million higher than 2015. The higher provision for the fourth quarter and full year of 2016 is due to portfolio growth as well as certain acquired loans being refinanced by BNB. Acquired loans are recorded at fair value at acquisition, effectively netting estimated future losses against the loan balances, whereas loans originated and refinanced by BNB have recorded reserves.   The Company recognized net recoveries of $.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to net charge-offs of $.4 million for the same period in 2015.  The Company recognized net charge-offs of $.4 million for the full year 2016 compared to net charge-offs of $.9 million for 2015. 

Total non-interest income was $3.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, $.3 million higher than 2015, resulting from an increase in BOLI income and gain on sale of SBA loans offset by a decrease in fees for other customer services.  Total non-interest income was $16.0 million for the full year 2016, $3.4 million higher than 2015, primarily attributable to the CNB acquisition and resulting from increases in BOLI income, gain on sale of SBA loans, service charges, fees for other customer services and gain on sales of securities.

(1) See reconciliations of As Reported (GAAP) to Core (Non-GAAP) disclosure provided elsewhere herein.

Non-interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2016 increased to $18.5 million from $18.2 million in 2015.  The increase is a result of increases in salaries and benefits expense, technology and communications, marketing and advertising, professional services, amortization of intangibles and other operating expenses, offset by decreases in acquisition costs and FDIC assessment.  Non-interest expense for the full year 2016 increased to $77.1 million from $72.9 million in 2015.  The increase is a result of increases in all expense categories, offset by a decrease in acquisitions costs, all of which are attributable to the CNB acquisition. The reversal of accrued acquisition costs for the 2016 fourth quarter and full year is due to the reversal of pending merger related liabilities recorded at the acquisition date which have since been settled.  The Company's ratio of operating expenses to average assets decreased to 1.88% in the fourth quarter of 2016 from 2.00% in 2015.  The Company's ratio of operating expenses to average assets decreased to 2.00% for the full year 2016 from 2.46% in 2015.  Core operating expenses to average assets was 1.97% for the full year 2016 compared to 2.08% in 2015.

Balance Sheet and Asset Quality
Total assets were $4.1 billion at December 31, 2016, $272.6 million higher than December 2015. Total loans at December 2016 of $2.6 billion reflect growth of $189.7 million or 8% over December 2015.  This increase in loans was funded by growth in deposits and borrowings.  Deposits totaled $2.9 billion at December 2016, an increase of $82.4 million over 2015. Demand deposits totaled $1.2 billion at December 2016, representing 39% of total deposits.

Asset quality measures remained strong, as non-performing assets were $1.2 million or .03% of total assets at December 2016 compared to $1.6 million or .04% of total assets at December 2015. Non-performing loans were $1.2 million or .05% of total loans at December 2016 compared to $1.3 million or .06% of total loans at December 2015.  Loans 30 to 89 days past due increased $.7 million to $2.2 million at December 2016, with $1.0 million representing CNB acquired loans. Loans past due 90 days and still accruing at December 31, 2016 and 2015 were comprised of acquired loans of $1.0 million. Additionally, the Company held no other real estate owned at December 2016 compared to $0.3 million at December 2015.

The allowance for loan losses increased $5.2 million to $25.9 million at December 2016 from $20.7 million as of December 2015. The allowance as a percentage of loans was 1.00% at December 31, 2016 compared to .86% at December 31, 2015. The allowance as a percentage of BNB originated loans was 1.23%, based on BNB originated loans totaling $2.1 billion, at December 2016, compared to 1.21%, based on BNB originated loans totaling $1.7 billion, at December 2015. The increase in the allowance for loan losses is due to portfolio growth, as well as certain acquired loans being refinanced by BNB.

Stockholders' equity grew $66.9 million to $408.0 million at December 2016, compared to $341.1 million at December 2015.  The growth reflects earnings, the $47.5 million in net capital raised in connection with the November 2016 common stock offering and the dividend reinvestment plan, partially offset by shareholders' dividends and a decrease in the fair value of available for sale investment securities. The Company's capital ratios exceed all fully phased in capital requirements under the Basel III rules and the Bank remains classified as well capitalized.

"As many expected, the Federal Reserve raised rates in December and is expected to continue doing so throughout 2017.  This will present new challenges for the industry as it has been quite some time since the Fed's last sustained rate increase.  We have been, and will continue to be, thoughtful about our asset/liability mix and how to best position our balance sheet for this new environment.  Additionally, we anticipate our effective income tax rate in 2017 will remain between 34% and 35%.  However, the effective income tax rate may change materially should changes to current tax law be enacted in 2017.  Any changes to current tax law may also have an impact on our deferred tax position," noted Mr. O'Connor.

"During the fourth quarter we took advantage of the market's positive outlook for financial stocks and raised close to $50 million in common equity. This strengthened our balance sheet and will enable us to take advantage of opportunities in our marketplace.  Long Island continues to be one of the most attractive banking markets in the country and our model of on-the-ground bankers and local decision makers gives us a competitive advantage," stated Mr. O'Connor.

(1) The tables above provide a reconciliation of GAAP (As Reported) and non-GAAP (Core) financial measures. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are required to be disclosed in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP").  The Company's management believes the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with a greater understanding of the Company's operating results in addition to the results measured in accordance with GAAP.  While management uses these non-GAAP measures in its analysis of the Company's performance, this information should not be viewed as a substitute for financial results determined in accordance with GAAP or considered to be more important than financial results determined in accordance with GAAP.
                                 
(2) A fixed asset measurement period adjustment for $0.3 million was recorded in 2016 related to the recovery of depreciation expense recorded in 2015.
