The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.01 per share, payable on August 27, 2021, to shareholders of record as of August 13, 2021.

“We closed our fiscal year with another strong quarter,” said Rick Wayne, Chief Executive Officer. “For the fourth fiscal quarter, we originated $563.0 million of Round 2 PPP loans, sold $671.4 million to The Loan Source, Inc., and generated $12.6 million of net gains. For the year ended June 30, 2021, we originated $2.84 billion of PPP loans to over 30,000 borrowers with 287,000 associated jobs. Additionally, in the fourth quarter, we generated $6.7 million of correspondent fee income under the arrangement with Loan Source and ACAP SME, LLC. As correspondent, we facilitated for Loan Source purchases of $4.4 billion of PPP loans during the quarter and cumulative purchases of $11.2 billion through June 30, 2021. Our national lending business remained strong, with originated and purchased loans of $147.8 million during the quarter and $478.4 million for the year, representing 11.5% annual growth.” Mr. Wayne continued, “As a result, we are reporting earnings of $2.54 per diluted common share, a return on average equity of 38.0%, a return on average assets of 4.6%, and an efficiency ratio of 25.0% for the quarter.”

As of June 30, 2021, total assets were $2.17 billion, an increase of $916.8 million, or 72.9%, from total assets of $1.26 billion as of June 30, 2020.

1. Cash and short-term investments increased by $866.8 million, or 603.4%, primarily due to the timing of a large deposit account related to PPP payoff collections and purchases that is subject to significant fluctuation given the PPP activity during the quarter ended June 30, 2021. Cash and short-term investments may fluctuate significantly and remain at an elevated level while PPP collections, including forgiveness amounts, continue, depending on the timing of receipts and remittances of cash amounts.

Total return on purchased loans is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. See reconciliation in below table entitled “Total Return on Purchased Loans.”

3. Deposits increased by $850.1 million, or 84.0%, from June 30, 2020. The increase was attributable to increases in demand deposits of $877.7 million, or 926.4%, and savings and interest checking accounts of $187.2 million, or 135.9%, partially offset by a decrease in time deposits of $199.6 million, or 41.8%, due to intentional runoff. The increase in demand deposits was primarily due to the timing of a large deposit account related to PPP collections and payoffs that is subject to significant fluctuation given the PPP forgiveness activity during the quarter ended June 30, 2021.
4. Shareholders’ equity increased by $67.7 million, or 41.1%, from June 30, 2020, primarily due to net income of $71.5 million. Shareholders’ equity also increased by $965 thousand as a result of stock options exercised, which resulted in 153 thousand shares of common stock issued, and increased by $978 thousand due to stock-based compensation. Partially offsetting these increases was the repurchase of 194,317 shares of common stock at a weighted average price per share of $29.56, which resulted in a $5.7 million decrease in shareholders’ equity.

Net income increased by $10.2 million to $21.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to net income of $11.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

1. Net interest and dividend income before provision for loan losses increased by $718 thousand to $18.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to $17.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase was primarily due to the following:
  • A decrease in deposit interest expense of $2.4 million, due to lower interest rates and lower average balances in interest-bearing deposits; partially offset by,
  • A decrease in PPP loan interest income of $677 thousand, due to lower average balances;
  • A decrease in interest income earned on the National Lending Division’s originated portfolio of $509 thousand, due to lower rates earned, partially offset by higher average balances; and
  • A decrease of $390 thousand in interest income earned on the Community Bank portfolio, due to lower average balances and average rates earned.

The total return on purchased loans for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was 9.0%, a decrease from 9.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The following table details the total return on purchased loans:

(1) The total return on purchased loans represents scheduled accretion, accelerated accretion, gains on asset sales and gains on real estate owned recorded during the period divided by the average invested balance, which includes purchased loans held for sale, on an annualized basis. The total return does not include the effect of purchased loan charge-offs or recoveries in the quarter. Total return is considered a non-GAAP financial measure.

2. Provision for loan losses decreased by $2.8 million to a credit of $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, from a $905 thousand provision in the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The decrease in the provision for loan losses reflects decreases in certain qualitative factors during the current quarter as a result of continued improvements from the COVID-19 pandemic, primarily in the SBA loan portfolio, partially offset by an increase in loan balances during the quarter.
3. Noninterest income increased by $9.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020, principally due to the following:
  • An increase in gain on sale of PPP loans of $2.9 million, due to the sale of PPP loans with a total principal balance of $671.4 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the sale of PPP loans with a total balance of $457.6 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2020, which resulted in a net gain based on the recognition of net deferred fees; and
  • An increase in correspondent fee income of $6.6 million from the recognition of correspondent fees and net servicing income as a result of the correspondent arrangement entered into with The Loan Source, Inc. (“Loan Source”) during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Under the correspondent arrangement, the Bank earns a correspondent fee when Loan Source purchases PPP loans and the Bank subsequently shares in net servicing income on such purchased PPP loans. Correspondent income for the quarter is comprised of the following components:
  Income Earned
  (In thousands)
Correspondent Fee $ 1,080  
Amortization of Purchased Accrued Interest   972  
Earned Net Servicing Interest   4,602  
Total $ 6,654  

A summary of PPP loans purchased by Loan Source and related amounts that the Bank will earn over the expected life of the loans is as follows:

Quarter   PPP Loans Purchased by Loan Source(3)   Correspondent Fee   Purchased Accrued Interest(1)   Total(2)
  (In thousands)
Q4 FY 2020   $ 1,272,900   $ 2,891   $ 688   $ 3,579

Less amounts recognized in previous quarters   (3,001)   (1,813)   (4,814)
Amount remaining to be recognized   $ 4,824   $ 8,523   $ 13,347
(1) – Northeast Bank’s share
(2) – Expected to be recognized into income over life of loans
(3) – Loan Source’s ending PPP loan balance was $8.39 billion as of June 30, 2021

In addition to these increases:

  • A decrease in loss on assets held for sale of $337 thousand due to the fair value adjustment for PPP loans held for sale at June 30, 2020, as compared to no PPP loans held for sale at June 30, 2021.
4. Noninterest expense decreased by $741 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020, primarily due to the following:
  • A decrease in salaries expense of $1.7 million, primarily due to a decrease of $1.4 million in incentive compensation due to the annual bonus true-up being recorded during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and an increase of $733 thousand in deferred salaries contra-expense related to higher PPP originations, partially offset by an increase of $310 thousand in regular compensation, due to salary increases; partially offset by,
  • An increase in loan expense of $648 thousand, primarily due to $522 thousand in correspondent expenses associated with the Loan Source correspondent arrangement and increased collection legal expenses;
  • An increase in other noninterest expense of $158 thousand, primarily due to the quarterly valuation of the SBA servicing asset, which resulted in a $93 thousand recovery during the quarter ended June 30, 2021 as compared to a $190 thousand recovery during the quarter ended June 30, 2020; and
  • An increase in marketing expense of $154 thousand, due to increased website advertising and general production in connection with National Lending Division and deposit initiatives.
5. Income tax expense increased by $4.0 million to $8.9 million, or an effective tax rate of 29.4%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to $4.9 million, or an effective tax rate of 30.4%, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase in income tax expense is due to the increase in pre-tax income. The decrease in the effective tax rate from June 30, 2020 is primarily due to a smaller year-end true-up adjustment related to state tax apportionment in the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

As of June 30, 2021, nonperforming assets totaled $20.4 million, or 0.94% of total assets, compared to $24.4 million, or 1.94% of total assets, as of June 30, 2020. As of June 30, 2021, past due loans totaled $11.3 million, or 1.08% of total loans, compared to past due loans totaling $16.4 million, or 1.69% of total loans, as of June 30, 2020.

As of June 30, 2021, the Bank’s Tier 1 leverage capital ratio was 13.6%, compared to 13.4% at June 30, 2020, and the Total capital ratio was 24.3% at June 30, 2021, compared to 19.6% at June 30, 2020. Capital ratios were affected by earnings during the year ended June 30, 2021.
