Commenting on the Company’s second quarter performance, President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph R. Ficalora stated, "There is a lot to like about this year’s second quarter performance, which was highlighted by a linked-quarter increase in earnings, driven by margin expansion and increased efficiency. The quarter was also highlighted by the consistent quality of our assets, robust held-for-investment loan production, and continuing measures of capital strength.

"As earnings rose sequentially, to $122.5 million, our return on average tangible assets rose to 1.21% in the quarter, and our return on average tangible stockholders’ equity rose to 15.90%--a 56-basis point increase. (2)

"During this time, our margin rose to 3.15%--that’s a 20-basis point increase--as a surge in refinancing activity in our traditional lending niches resulted in a record level of income from prepayment penalties.

"Our efficiency ratio also reflected a marked linked-quarter improvement, declining to 41.71% from 43.25%. While non-interest income declined as securities gains and mortgage banking income fell, the impact was more than offset by the growth of our net interest income, together with a reduction in our operating expenses.

"Our measures of asset quality were another second quarter highlight, as the ratio of non-performing non-covered loans to total loans dropped year-over-year and linked-quarter to an 18-quarter low of 0.54% at the end of June. In addition, net charge-offs represented a nominal 0.01% of average loans in the second quarter of this year.

"Reflecting our linked-quarter earnings growth and the exceptional quality of our assets, our capital measures also conveyed significant strength. For example, adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity totaled $3.3 billion, representing 7.87% of adjusted tangible assets at the end of June. (2) Our regulatory measures also reflect the strength of our capital position, and we are confident of our ability to maintain our "well capitalized" status when the new Basel III requirements go into effect in 2015.

"Yet another achievement I am pleased to report was the quarter-end addition of a new line of business to our lending mix. On behalf of our Board, I am pleased to announce the launch of NYCB Specialty Finance Company, headquartered in Foxboro, Massachusetts, which has commenced operations under the capable leadership of industry veteran John Chipman, who has been appointed Executive Vice President and Director of this new subsidiary. In the quarters ahead, you should expect to see a gradual rise in our C&I lending as John and his seasoned lending team build on their industry contacts to originate asset-based, dealer floor plan, and equipment financing loans throughout the U.S. for our portfolio."

Board of Directors Declares $0.25 per Share Dividend Payable on August 16, 2013

"In view of the strength of our capital and our solid second quarter earnings, the Board of Directors last night declared our 38th consecutive quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share. The dividend is payable on August 16th to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 7, 2013," Mr. Ficalora said.

Balance Sheet Summary

Assets totaled $44.2 billion at June 30, 2013, $325.9 million lower than the March 31st balance and $40.7 million higher than the balance at December 31, 2012.

Loans

Total loans represented $31.8 billion, or 72.1%, of total assets at the close of the second quarter, down $159.3 million from the March 31st balance and up $67.2 million from the balance at December 31, 2012. However, the average balance of loans rose $326.0 million linked-quarter, to $31.9 billion in the second quarter of 2013.

Loans Held for Investment

Loans held for investment represented $28.1 billion, or 63.5%, of total assets at the end of the second quarter, $63.0 million below the March 31, 2013 balance and $766.9 million above the balance at December 31, 2012.

Reflecting a substantial increase in refinancing activity in the current second quarter, originations of loans held for investment totaled $4.7 billion in the current six-month period, up from $4.1 billion in the year-earlier six months. Included in the respective amounts were second quarter originations of $2.4 billion and $1.9 billion; in the first quarter of 2013, originations of held-for-investment loans totaled $2.2 billion.

Multi-family loans represented $2.9 billion of loans produced for investment in the current six-month period, as compared to $2.3 billion in the first six months of 2012. Included in the current six-month amount were second-quarter originations of $1.4 billion, down $151.7 million from the trailing quarter’s volume and up $112.9 million from the volume produced in the second quarter of last year. CRE loans represented $1.1 billion of year-to-date originations, down $387.9 million from the volume originated in the year-earlier six months. Included in the current six-month amount were second quarter originations of $670.3 million, up $283.8 million on a linked-quarter basis and $141.9 million year-over-year.

The following table provides additional information about the multi-family and CRE loan portfolios:

             
(dollars in thousands) June 30, 2013 March 31, 2013 December 31, 2012
Multi-Family Loan Portfolio:
Loans outstanding $19,230,079 $19,228,034 $18,605,185
Percent of held-for-investment loans 68.6 % 68.4 % 68.2 %
Average loan size $4,276 $4,234 $4,107
Expected weighted average life 3.0 years 2.9 years 2.9 years
 
Commercial Real Estate Loan Portfolio:
Loans outstanding $7,311,516 $7,543,238 $7,436,950
Percent of held-for-investment loans 26.1 % 26.8 % 27.3 %
Average loan size $4,603 $4,656 $4,571
Expected weighted average life 3.3 years 3.4 years 3.4 years
 

Also included in loans held for investment at the end of the second quarter were acquisition, development, and construction loans of $416.4 million; one-to-four family loans of $375.6 million; and commercial and industrial loans of $672.8 million, after six-month originations of $82.4 million, $199.6 million, and $394.8 million, respectively.

Loans Held for Sale

The average balance of loans held for sale was $768.3 million in the current second quarter, down $167.5 million from the trailing-quarter average and $91.5 million from the average in the second quarter of last year. In the first six months of 2013 and 2012, the Company originated loans held for sale of $4.4 billion and $5.0 billion, including second-quarter originations of $2.1 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively. The declines in production were attributable to a decrease in refinancing activity as residential mortgage interest rates rose from the record lows that prevailed in the prior year.

Covered Loans

Primarily reflecting repayments, loans acquired in FDIC-assisted transactions declined $134.7 million and $251.9 million, respectively, from the balances at the end of March and December, to $3.0 billion at June 30, 2013. Covered loans represented 9.5% of total loans at the end of the second quarter, down from 9.9% and 10.3%, respectively, at the earlier period-ends.

Pipeline

The current loan pipeline is approximately $3.4 billion, including loans held for investment of approximately $2.5 billion and one-to-four family loans held for sale of approximately $902 million.

Asset Quality

The following discussion pertains only to the Company's portfolio of non-covered loans held for investment and non-covered other real estate owned ("OREO").

The following table presents the balance of non-performing non-covered loans and assets at the end of the second quarter, as compared to the balances at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012:

             
(dollars in thousands) June 30, 2013 March 31, 2013 December 31, 2012
Non-Performing Non-Covered Assets:      
Non-accrual non-covered mortgage loans:
Multi-family $112,904 $109,688 $163,460
Commercial real estate 30,329 55,735 56,863
Acquisition, development, and construction 6,737 8,959 12,091
One-to-four family 10,881 11,317 10,945
Total non-accrual non-covered mortgage loans $160,851 $185,699 $243,359
Other non-accrual non-covered loans 6,242 7,914 17,971
Total non-performing non-covered loans $167,093 $193,613 $261,330
Non-covered other real estate owned 84,478 70,319 29,300
Total non-performing non-covered assets $251,571 $263,932 $290,630
 

The level of net charge-offs also reflected improvement, declining to $4.7 million in the current second quarter from $5.6 million and $13.9 million, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months. Reflecting the respective declines, net charge-offs represented 0.01% of average loans (non-annualized) in the current second quarter, as compared to 0.02% and 0.05%, respectively, in the earlier periods. At June 30, 2013, the allowance for losses on non-covered loans totaled $140.7 million, representing 84.20% of non-performing non-covered loans and 0.50% of total non-covered loans.

While non-performing non-covered assets declined, along with net charge-offs, the balance of non-covered loans 30 to 89 days past due rose to $39.7 million at the end of the second quarter from $19.8 million and $27.6 million, respectively, at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012. As a result, total delinquencies (i.e., the sum of non-performing non-covered assets and non-covered loans 30 to 89 days past due) rose $7.6 million to $291.3 million on a linked-quarter basis, but were down $26.9 million, or 8.5%, from the balance at year-end 2012.

The following table presents the Company's asset quality measures at or for the three months ended June 30, 2013, March 31, 2013, and December 31, 2012:

             
June 30, 2013 March 31, 2013 December 31, 2012

Securities

Securities represented $5.9 billion of total assets at the end of the second quarter, reflecting a $477.5 million increase from the March 31st balance and a $1.0 billion increase from the balance at December 31, 2012. The June 30th balance was equivalent to 13.4% of total assets, up from 12.3% and 11.1%, respectively, at the earlier dates. At $5.6 billion, securities held to maturity represented 94.7% of the June 30th balance; in addition, government-sponsored enterprise ("GSE") obligations represented 93.4% of total securities at that date.

Funding Sources

Deposits totaled $25.3 billion at the end of the second quarter, reflecting a $189.8 million decrease from the March 31st balance and a $410.3 million increase from the balance at December 31, 2012. The June 30th balance represented 57.2% of total assets, consistent with the percentage at the end of the trailing quarter and slightly higher than the percentage at year-end.

While NOW and money market accounts and savings accounts respectively rose $140.1 million and $577.3 million over the course of the quarter, the combined increase was exceeded by a $746.7 million reduction in certificates of deposit ("CDs"), together with a $160.5 million reduction in non-interest-bearing accounts. However, in the six months ended June 30, 2013, NOW and money market accounts and savings accounts respectively rose $654.1 million and $1.2 billion, exceeding the combined impact of a $1.2 billion reduction in CDs and a $238.7 million decline in non-interest-bearing accounts. The significant growth in savings accounts was attributable to the popularity of a new savings product that was introduced in the first quarter of 2013.

Wholesale borrowings totaled $12.6 billion at the end of the second quarter, reflecting a linked-quarter decrease of $186.6 million and a $438.3 million decrease from the balance at December 31, 2012. The June 30th balance represented 28.6% of total assets, down from 28.8% and 29.6%, respectively, at the earlier period-ends.

Stockholders’ Equity

The Company recorded stockholders’ equity of $5.7 billion at the end of the second quarter, up $22.8 million from the March 31st balance and $32.2 million from the balance at December 31, 2012. Similarly, tangible stockholders’ equity rose $27.0 million and $40.8 million, respectively, to $3.2 billion, over the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. Reflecting the respective increases, book value per share rose to $12.90 per share at the end of the second quarter and tangible book value rose to $7.32 per share.(2)

In addition, the regulatory capital ratios for both New York Community Bank and New York Commercial Bank continued to exceed the federal requirements for "well capitalized" classification, as indicated in the table on the last page of this release.

Earnings Summary for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013

Net Interest Income

Net interest income rose $24.7 million on a linked-quarter basis, and $3.2 million year-over-year, to $299.9 million in the three months ended June 30, 2013. The linked-quarter rise was the result of a $23.8 million increase in interest income to $436.6 million, coupled with a $941,000 decrease in interest expense to $136.7 million. While interest income fell $18.4 million year-over-year, the impact was more than offset by a $21.6 million decline in interest expense.

In addition, the Company's net interest margin rose 20 basis points, to 3.15%, on a linked-quarter basis; year-over-year, the margin was down 15 basis points.

The following factors contributed to the linked-quarter improvements noted above:

  • Prepayment penalty income accounted for $44.4 million of the interest income recorded in the current second quarter, up from $19.9 million and $32.0 million, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months. The current second quarter amount established a new record as the highest volume of prepayment penalty income recorded in a single three-month period.
  • In addition, prepayment penalty income contributed a record 47 basis points to the Company’s current second quarter margin, as compared to 21 basis points and 36 basis points, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months.
  • The linked-quarter increase in net interest income and margin was also supported by a $936.4 million rise in the average balance of interest-earning assets to $38.0 billion, as the average balance of loans rose $326.0 million to $31.9 billion, and the average balance of securities rose $610.4 million to $6.1 billion. The average yield on interest-earning assets rose 14 basis points to 4.60%, linked-quarter, largely reflecting the aforementioned rise in prepayment penalty income.
  • The average balance of interest-bearing liabilities rose $498.2 million on a linked-quarter basis, the result of a $422.4 million increase in the average balance of interest-bearing deposits to $22.8 billion and a $75.7 million increase in the average balance of borrowed funds to $12.5 billion. Nevertheless, the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities fell five basis points to 1.56%, linked-quarter, as the average cost of borrowed funds fell 13 basis points from the trailing-quarter level and the average cost of deposits rose a single basis point.

Provisions for Loan Losses

The Company recorded a $5.0 million provision for losses on non-covered loans in the current second quarter, consistent with the trailing-quarter level and $10.0 million below the level recorded in the year-earlier three months.

In addition, the Company recorded a $4.6 million provision for losses on covered loans in the current second quarter, comparable to the $4.5 million recorded in the trailing quarter and $13.8 million less than the provision recorded in the second quarter of 2012. Because covered loans are covered by FDIC loss sharing agreements, the respective loan loss provisions were partly offset by FDIC indemnification income of $3.7 million, $3.6 million, and $14.8 million, respectively, recorded in non-interest income in the corresponding periods.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income totaled $53.7 million in the current second quarter, down $21.8 million and $44.5 million, respectively, from the levels recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2012. The reductions were primarily attributable to the following factors:

  • Mortgage banking income totaled $23.2 million in the current second quarter, down $2.9 million from the trailing-quarter level and $35.1 million year-over-year. The latter reduction was primarily due to the aforementioned decline in residential mortgage loan production, as the rise in mortgage interest rates from the lows of the past four quarters inhibited refinancing activity. Income from originations totaled $17.1 million in the current second quarter, down $8.8 million on a linked-quarter basis and $35.9 million year-over-year. Servicing income accounted for $6.1 million of the mortgage banking income recorded in the current second quarter, as compared to $226,000 and $5.4 million, respectively, in the earlier periods.
  • While the year-over-year decline in non-interest income was largely due to the drop in mortgage banking income, the linked-quarter decline was largely due to a drop in securities gains. In the three months ended June 30, 2013, securities gains totaled $123,000, in contrast to $16.6 million in the first quarter of this year.
  • Fee income and BOLI income rose sequentially and year-over-year to $10.0 million and $7.3 million, respectively, while other income fell sequentially but rose year-over-year. Other non-interest income declined to $9.4 million from $13.2 million in the trailing quarter; the latter amount included the recovery of $3.9 million on a security that had previously been classified as other-than-temporarily impaired.
  • As noted in the discussion of the provision for covered loan losses, FDIC indemnification income rose modestly on a linked-quarter basis but declined $11.1 million year-over-year.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense declined $3.8 million year-over-year, and $4.4 million linked-quarter, to $151.7 million in the three months ended June 30, 2013. Operating expenses accounted for $147.5 million of the current second-quarter total, having fallen $3.0 million and $4.2 million, respectively, over the corresponding periods. The following factors contributed to the sequential and year-over-year reductions:

  • Compensation and benefits expense totaled $77.4 million in the current second quarter, down $6.1 million from the trailing-quarter level and up $3.8 million from the year-earlier amount. In the first quarter of 2013, the Company recorded retirement and severance costs of $6.0 million; no comparable expenses were recorded in the second quarter of this year. The year-over-year increase in compensation and benefits expense was primarily attributable to normal salary increases.
  • General and administrative ("G&A") expense totaled $45.9 million in the current second quarter, $1.4 million higher than the trailing-quarter level and $7.7 million lower than the year-earlier amount. The year-over-year decline was attributable to a reduction in expenses associated with the management and disposition of foreclosed properties.
  • Occupancy and equipment expense totaled $24.2 million in the current second quarter, modestly exceeding the trailing-quarter and year-earlier amounts.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense totaled $69.8 million in the current second quarter, reflecting pre-tax income of $192.3 million and an effective tax rate of 36.30%.

RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP EARNINGS AND NON-GAAP EARNINGS (CASH EARNINGS)
(unaudited)

Although cash earnings are not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we believe that they are important because of their contribution to tangible stockholders’ equity. (Please see the discussion and reconciliations of stockholders’ equity and tangible stockholders’ equity that appear under "Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Capital Measures" on page 11 of this release.) We calculate cash earnings by adding back to GAAP earnings certain items that have been charged against them but that are added to, rather than subtracted from, tangible stockholders’ equity. For this reason, we believe that cash earnings, although non-GAAP, are useful to investors seeking to evaluate our financial performance and to compare our performance with that of other companies in the banking industry that also report cash earnings.

Cash earnings should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating activities, or other income or cash flow statement data calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate cash earnings may differ from that of other companies reporting non-GAAP measures with similar names.

Reconciliations of our GAAP and cash earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2013, March 31, 2013, and June 30, 2012, and for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, follow:

(2) We calculate our cash efficiency ratio by excluding the amortization and appreciation of shares held in our stock-related benefit plans from our operating expenses and dividing the resultant amount by the sum of our net interest income and non-interest income.

RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP CAPITAL MEASURES
(unaudited)

Although tangible stockholders’ equity, adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity, tangible assets, and adjusted tangible assets are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, management uses these non-GAAP capital measures in their analysis of our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP capital measures are an important indication of our ability to grow both organically and through business combinations, and, with respect to tangible stockholders’ equity and adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity, our ability to pay dividends and to engage in various capital management strategies.

Tangible stockholders’ equity, adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity, tangible assets, adjusted tangible assets, and the related non-GAAP capital measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for stockholders’ equity, total assets, or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate these non-GAAP measures may differ from that of other companies reporting non-GAAP measures with similar names.

Reconciliations of our stockholders’ equity, tangible stockholders’ equity, and adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity; total assets, tangible assets, and adjusted tangible assets; and the related measures at or for the three months ended June 30, 2013, March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, and the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, follow:
