Commenting on the third quarter results, Kevin O'Connor, President and CEO said, "Our investments in people and brand awareness bore fruit in this quarter, with loans and deposits growing at annual rates of 18% and 19% respectively. This was achieved while improving our efficiency ratio from 59% to 56% quarter-over quarter.   We continue to expand into new and promising markets, opening our newest branch in Astoria, Queens during September." 

Net Earnings and Returns
Net income for the quarter was $9.4 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $8.9 million, or $0.50 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2016.  Net income for the nine months ended September 2017 was $27.5 million, or $1.39 per diluted share, compared to $26.3 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, in 2016.  Returns on average assets and equity for the third quarter of 2017 were 0.88% and 8.41%, respectively, compared to 0.93% and 9.78% in 2016, respectively.  Return on average tangible common equity for the third quarter of 2017 was 11.21% compared to 14.24% in 2016.  The decreases in the equity related returns are the result of the increase in average shares outstanding and stockholders' equity due in part to the $50 million common stock offering in November 2016.  

Interest income increased $3.7 million for the third quarter of 2017 over the same period in 2016 as average interest earning assets increased by $477.0 million, or 14%, due primarily to organic growth in loans and an increase in securities. Interest expense increased $2.0 million for the third quarter of 2017 over the same period in 2016 as average interest bearing liabilities increased by $354.2 million, or 16%, due primarily to increases in deposits and FHLB advances.  

While net interest income increased, the quarterly net interest margin, reported on a GAAP basis, declined to 3.29% from 3.57% for the comparable quarter last year. Factors affecting the margin include Fed Fund rate increases, lower purchase accounting accretion income on acquired loans, loan pricing floors on a portion of floating rate loans, and the elimination of costs associated with the junior subordinated debentures. While increases in rates have, to date, impacted the margin negatively this compression has been somewhat amplified by the impact of the aforementioned purchase accounting accretion. The tax equivalent margin, excluding this accretion, was 3.14% in the third quarter of 2017 versus 3.31% in comparable period in 2016. This non-GAAP disclosure has been included to show how the underlying structure of the balance sheet is reacting to the interest rate environment.

"The three increases in Fed Fund rates beginning in December 2016, totaling 75 basis points, reflect the first sustained increases in over a decade.  While we believe over time there is a benefit to the Company of higher sustained rates, in the short term this activity, along with other market forces, have resulted in a flattening yield curve, causing funding costs to increase quicker than our asset yields.  We believe with a rise in rates across the yield curve, the strength of our core deposit franchise, expected loan repricings, and overall growth prospects we will, over time see an expanded margin. Specifically, the strength and value of this franchise can be measured today in the impact of the Fed rate increase on our core deposit costs and current growth.  To date of the 75 basis points of Fed Fund rate increases we have experienced only a 15 basis points increase in costs on core deposits, or only 19% of the increase (our deposit beta). In addition, over this time period our bankers managed to grow this portfolio of deposits in excess of 9%," noted Mr. O'Connor.  

Provision for loan losses was $1.9 million for the 2017 third quarter, $.1 million lower than the third quarter of 2016. Contributing to the lower provision was a decrease in net charge-offs, partially offset by an increase in loan growth in the 2017 third quarter compared to the 2016 third quarter.  The Company recognized net charge-offs of $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to net charge-offs of $0.4 million for the same period in 2016. 

Non-interest income was $5.0 million for the third quarter of 2017, $.9 million higher than 2016, resulting from an increase in other operating income, title fee income, and net securities gains, partially offset by a decrease in gain on sales of Small Business Administration loans. 

Non-interest expense for the third quarter of 2017 increased to $21.3 million from $19.2 million in 2016.  The increase reflects growth in salaries and benefits expense, other operating expenses, and occupancy and equipment, partially offset by a decrease in amortization of other intangible assets.  The Company's operating expense as a percentage of average assets was 1.99% in the third quarter of 2017 compared to 2.03% in the third quarter of 2016. 

Balance Sheet and Asset Quality
Total assets were $4.3 billion at September 30, 2017, $450.3 million higher than September 2016. Total loans at September 2017 of $2.9 billion reflect growth of $335.4 million, or 13%, over September 2016.  This growth was net of a bulk loan sale and the exit of two loan participations in the 2016 fourth quarter totaling approximately $47 million.  Deposits totaled $3.2 billion at September 2017, an increase of $279.6 million over 2016. Demand deposits totaled $1.2 billion at September 2017, representing 37% of total deposits.

Asset quality measures remained strong, as non-performing assets, comprised exclusively of non-performing loans, were $7.5 million, or 0.17% of total assets, and 0.26% of total loans at September 2017 compared to $2.1 million, or 0.05% of total assets, and 0.08% of total loans at September 2016.  Loans 30 to 89 days past due decreased $0.2 million to $3.8 million at September 30, 2017, with $1.9 million representing acquired loans.  Loans past due 90 days and still accruing at September 30, 2017 and 2016 were comprised of acquired loans of $2.4 million and $1.0 million, respectively.

The allowance for loan losses increased $5.0 million to $29.3 million at September 30, 2017 from $24.3 million as of September 30, 2016. The allowance as a percentage of loans was 1.00% at September 30, 2017 compared to 0.94% at September 30, 2016. The allowance as a percentage of BNB originated loans was 1.17%, based on BNB originated loans totaling $2.5 billion, at September 30, 2017, compared to 1.19%, based on BNB originated loans totaling $2.1 billion, at September 30, 2016. The increase in the allowance for loan losses 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 allowances for loan losses.

Stockholders' equity grew $79.3 million to $441.9 million at September 30, 2017, compared to $362.6 million at September 30, 2016.  The growth reflects earnings, the $47.5 million in net capital raised in connection with the November 2016 common stock offering, conversions of trust preferred securities and the dividend reinvestment plan, partially offset by shareholders' dividends and a decrease in the fair value of available for sale investment securities. Tangible book value per share increased $2.47 to $16.78 at September 30, 2017, compared to $14.31 at September 30, 2016.  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.

Branch Rationalization
Mr. O'Connor commented, "Following an assessment of our branch network to ensure we are covering our markets efficiently, we have identified a number of branches that we plan to either close or consolidate into nearby locations.  As a result, we expect to take a pre-tax charge in the 2017 4th quarter related to exiting lease obligations, employee severance, and other related charges of no more than $6.6 million.  The impact on 2018 pre-tax income, in the form of cost savings and expected deposit runoff, is estimated to be no less than $3.3 million, with an expected payback period of no more than 22 months.  We will be following up with more information in the coming weeks as this initiative progresses."

Reconciliation of As Reported (GAAP) and non-GAAP financial measures
 
             
The tables below provide a reconciliation of GAAP (As Reported) and non-GAAP 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.
