LEWISTON, Maine--()--Northeast Bancorp (“Northeast” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NBN), a Maine-based full-service financial services company and parent of Northeast Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $1.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to $418 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Net income for the six months ended December 31, 2012 was $2.6 million, compared to $947 thousand for the six months ended December 31, 2011. Net income for the six months ended December 31, 2011 included $1.1 million from discontinued operations.

Net income available to common stockholders was $1.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared $320 thousand, or $0.09 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Net income available to common stockholders for the six months ended December 31, 2012 was $2.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted common share, compared to $751 thousand, or $0.21 per diluted common share, for the six months ended December 31, 2011. Weighted average shares outstanding increased to 10.4 million in each of the current year periods from 3.5 million in 2011 as a result of the Company’s public offering of common stock in May 2012.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2012, the Company redeemed, at par value, all shares of preferred stock issued to the U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “UST”) under the Troubled Asset Relief Program (“TARP”). The Company also repurchased the warrant for 67,958 shares of common stock issued to the UST in connection with TARP for $95 thousand during the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The Company recorded $258 thousand of preferred stock dividends and discount accretion, or $0.025 per share, as a reduction of net income available to common shareholders related to the TARP preferred stock in the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Of the $258 thousand reduction, approximately $194 thousand was accelerated accretion of a previously recorded fair value adjustment.

The Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.09 per share, payable on February 26, 2013 to shareholders of record as of February 12, 2013.

“Our results this quarter reflect real progress in executing our business strategy, with net income increasing to $1.5 million,” said Richard Wayne, Chief Executive Officer. “Our purchased commercial loan portfolio continues to grow, with superior returns that drove our net interest margin to 4.28% for the quarter. Within our Community Banking division, the residential lending group had another strong quarter. Deposits in our new online affinity deposit program, ableBanking, more than doubled over the previous quarter, with net growth of $28 million.”

At December 31, 2012, total assets were $704.7 million, an increase of $35.5 million, or 5.3%, compared to June 30, 2012. The principal components of the year to date change in the balance sheet were as follows:

1.

     

The loan portfolio grew by $36.3 million, or 10.2%, principally due to net growth of $49.3 million in the purchased loan portfolio and $10.9 million of commercial loans originated by the Bank’s Loan Acquisition and Servicing Group (“LASG”), offset in part by net amortization and payoffs of $23.8 million in the Community Banking Division loan portfolio.

          In the current quarter, the LASG purchased loans totaling $32.9 million, growing the purchased loan portfolio on a net basis to $133.7 million at quarter end. Additionally, the LASG originated $4.0 million in commercial loans, increasing its originated loan portfolio to $15.9 million at quarter end. An overview of the LASG portfolio follows:

6. Noninterest expense increased by $1.3 million for the current quarter, compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2011, principally due to the following:
  • An increase of $684 thousand in employee compensation, due mainly to increases in staffing and in the cost of employee benefits programs. Full-time equivalent employees increased by 14 over the past year, as the Company has added staff to several operational areas and the LASG. Benefits costs have increased as a result of the replacement of the Company’s self-insured benefits program by a third-party insurance program in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • An increase of $231 thousand in occupancy and equipment expense, principally due to increased rent associated with the relocation of the Company’s office in Boston, MA, and depreciation of investments in new technology, principally those associated with ableBanking.
  • An increase of $191 thousand in loan acquisition and collection expense, principally due to an increase in the size of the LASG portfolio, which has grown to $149.7 million from $54.5 million at December 31, 2011.

At December 31, 2012, nonperforming assets were $9.8 million, or 1.4% of total assets, an increase of $2.9 million from $6.9 million, or 1.0%, of total assets at June 30, 2012.

At December 31, 2012, the Company’s Tier 1 leverage ratio was 17.4%, a decrease from 19.9% at June 30, 2012, and the total risk-based capital ratio was 29.4%, a decrease from 33.3% at June 30, 2012.

(1)

 

The net interest rate spread represents the difference between the weighted-average yield on interest-earning assets and the weighted-average cost of interest-bearing liabilities for the period.

(2)

The net interest margin represents net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets for the period.

(3)

The efficiency ratio represents non-interest expense divided by the sum of net interest income (before the loan loss provision) plus non-interest income.

(4)

For purposes of calculating this ratio, commercial real estate includes all those loans defined as such by regulatory guidance, including all land development and construction loans.

(5)

Core deposits include all non-maturity deposits and maturity deposits less than $250 thousand. Net loans include loans held-for-sale.

(6)

Tangible book value per share represents total stockholders' equity less the sum of preferred stock and intangible assets divided by common shares outstanding.
