Commenting on the second quarter results, Kevin O'Connor, President and CEO said, "Our second quarter results demonstrate our ability to successfully operate in this very competitive marketplace under increasingly challenging conditions.  We continue to add new relationships, along with loans and deposits, while improving our credit metrics, adjusted net interest margin, and expense ratio.  This quarter we also focused on strategically repositioning our balance sheet considering the new interest rate environment."

Net Earnings and Returns
Net income in the 2018 second quarter was $6.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, a decrease of $2.1 million compared to the 2017 second quarter. Excluding the impact of the balance sheet restructure, net income in the 2018 second quarter was $12.9 million, or $0.65 per diluted share. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $18.8 million, or $0.95 per diluted share, compared to $18.0 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, in 2017. Returns on average assets and equity in the 2018 second quarter were 0.60% and 5.96%, respectively, compared to 0.85% and 8.07%, respectively, in the 2017 second quarter. Return on average tangible common equity for the second quarter of 2018 was 7.90%, compared to 10.81% in 2017. The decreases in the asset and equity related returns and net income were primarily due to net securities losses associated with the Company's balance sheet restructuring in the 2018 second quarter.

Interest income was $41.6 million in the 2018 second quarter, an increase of $0.2 million compared to the 2018 first quarter, driven primarily by organic growth in loans, partially offset by a decrease in the average securities portfolio.   Interest expense was $7.6 million in the 2018 second quarter, an increase of $0.8 million compared to the 2018 first quarter, due to an increase in average cost of interest bearing liabilities coupled with an increase in average interest bearing liabilities.    

"Our net interest margin, excluding purchase accounting, improved on a linked quarter basis as investment portfolio and loan yields improved.  Although deposit costs continue to increase, we were able to grow our total non-public, non-brokered deposits at a 6.3% annualized rate during the quarter, including a 6.7% increase in DDA balances," stated Mr. O'Connor. "This decreased our level of wholesale borrowings by $150 million, holding down overall funding costs."
  
Provision for loan losses was $0.4 million for the 2018 second quarter, $0.6 million lower than the 2017 second quarter. Contributing to the lower provision was the $40 million loan sale in the 2018 second quarter. The Company recognized net charge-offs of $1.6 million in the 2018 second quarter, compared to net charge-offs of $0.1 million in the 2017 second quarter. The increase in net charge-offs was related to one loan with a full specific reserve.

Non-interest income (loss) was $(2.6) million for the 2018 second quarter, $7.1 million lower than the 2017 second quarter, driven primarily by net securities losses related to the balance sheet restructure, partially offset by higher service charges and other fees, gain on sale of loans, and other operating income. Excluding the impact of the balance sheet restructure, total non-interest income in the second quarter 2018 would have been $5.3 million.  

Regarding the gains on sale of Small Business Administration loans, Mr. O'Connor said, "The SBA business we acquired three years ago continues to generate non-interest income for the Company.  We have recorded over $1 million in gains year-to-date.  Through May of 2018 we are the third largest SBA 7a lender in dollars in the New York District and the largest on Long Island, according to the SBA.  Our ability to partner with the SBA to provide funding for small businesses allows us to execute on a key part of our mission as a community bank."

Non-interest expense for the 2018 second quarter increased to $22.5 million from $21.0 million in the 2017 second quarter.  The increase in 2018 is primarily due to higher salaries and benefits expense and other operating expenses, partially offset by lower occupancy and equipment expense.      

Income tax expense was $1.7 million in the 2018 second quarter, a decrease of $2.8 million compared with the 2017 second quarter.  The decrease reflects lower pre-tax income and a lower effective tax rate in 2018 due to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the fourth quarter of 2017.  The Company estimates it will record income tax at an effective tax rate of approximately 21% for the remainder of 2018.  

Balance Sheet and Asset Quality
Total assets were $4.4 billion at June 30, 2018, $15.2 million lower than December 31, 2017 and $193.3 million higher than June 30, 2017. Total loans at June 30, 2018 of $3.2 billion reflect growth of $384.4 million, or 14%, over June 30, 2017. Loans held for sale at June 30, 2018 were SBA loans closed during the second quarter, which had not yet been sold into the secondary market. Deposits totaled $3.6 billion at June 30, 2018, an increase of $493.6 million, or 16%, over June 30, 2017. Demand deposits increased $148.0 million year-over-year to $1.3 billion at June 30, 2018, representing 37% of total deposits.

"During the quarter, we undertook an initiative to improve corporate performance along many metrics including yield, liquidity, and capital.  We looked at the structure and composition of our assets and liabilities, and how they worked together.  We restructured $190 million of our investment portfolio, selling lower yielding bonds and recognizing losses already reflected in capital through Other Comprehensive Income.  We reinvested the proceeds in bonds with yields 150 basis points higher, but with the same duration.  We expect this will have a positive impact on our net interest margin and EPS going forward.  We estimate that the time to recover the loss to be just over 3 years.  We also took this opportunity to shrink the investment portfolio by $40 million and pay off wholesale borrowings that were costing more than the bonds were yielding," stated Mr. O'Connor.

"We continued to actively manage our loan portfolio and Commercial Real Estate concentrations by selling $40 million of Commercial Real Estate and Multi Family loans at a gain of $0.3 million.  This sale of non-relationship loans provides additional capacity for customers with more robust relationships," commented Mr. O'Connor.

Asset quality measures improved as non-performing assets were $1.8 million, or 0.04% of total assets, at June 30, 2018, compared to $2.7 million, or 0.06%, at June 30, 2017. Non-performing assets at June 30, 2018 includes $0.2 million of other real estate owned. Non-performing loans were $1.6 million, or 0.05% of total loans at June 30, 2018, compared to $2.7 million, or 0.10% of total loans at June 30, 2017.  Loans 30 to 89 days past due decreased $1.8 million to $4.4 million at June 30, 2018, compared to $6.2 million at June 30, 2017. Loans past due 90 days and accruing at June 30, 2018 and 2017 were comprised of acquired loans of $0.9 million and $1.0 million, respectively.

The allowance for loan losses was $31.7 million at June 30, 2018, $4.1 million higher than June 30, 2017. The allowance as a percentage of loans was 1.00% at June 30, 2018, 0.01% higher than June 30, 2017.   

Stockholders' equity was $439.8 million at June 30, 2018, $4.0 million higher than June 30, 2017.  The growth reflects earnings, partially offset by shareholders' dividends and a decrease in the fair value of available for sale investment securities. Tangible book value per share was $16.62 at June 30, 2018, $0.17 higher than June 30, 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (unaudited)                  
Reconciliation of as reported (GAAP) and non-GAAP financial measures                
                   
The following tables below provide a reconciliation of generally accepted accounting principles ("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 GAAP in the United States.  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.

The following non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain net securities losses associated with the Company's strategic plan to restructure its balance sheet during the second quarter of 2018.
