Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation Reports Third Quarter Results Of Operations

Other Income

Other income totaled $1.2 million in the September 2010 quarter compared to $1.1 million in the September 2009 quarter. Fee income earned on the sale of mortgage loans at origination increased, as there were greater mortgage originations in the September 2010 quarter and at a greater targeted premiums than in the September 2009 quarter.

Net gains on sales of securities totaled $126 thousand for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. The 2009 quarter reflected a net loss of $2 thousand.

The September 2010 quarter included a $360 thousand write-down of the Corporation’s investment in equity securities. Mr. Kissel noted “Our equity portfolio consists of high quality common stocks with a book value before write-down of $1.5 million. Unfortunately, the market value of these stocks has been depressed due to the recession. Although our quarterly review of each of the companies continues to indicate no major financial issues, since the market value of the stocks has been below our book value for an extended period, and we do not forecast a recovery of value in the foreseeable future, we have decided to write the securities down to fair value as of September 30, 2010.”

Operating Expenses

The Corporation’s total operating expenses were $10.9 million in both the September 2010 quarter and the September 2009 quarter. The 2010 quarter included decreased FDIC insurance expense and decreased professional fees offset by increased expenses associated with a new branch office opened in September 2009 and a new corporate headquarters occupied in June 2010.

ASSET QUALITY

At September 30, 2010, nonperforming assets decreased to $19.0 million or 1.28 percent of total assets as compared to $21.3 million or 1.44 percent of total assets at June 30, 2010. As noted earlier, the progress made in resolving certain problem assets has led to a decline in non-performing assets from June 30, 2010 to September 30, 2010.
