Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation Reports First Quarter Results Of Operations

Average money market accounts also rose, from $494.7 million for the first quarter of 2010 to $522.5 million for the first quarter of 2011, reflecting an increase of $27.8 million or 5.6 percent. The Corporation’s reduction in certificate of deposit balances and its focus on core deposit growth, as well as certain customers tending to “park” funds in money market accounts in lower interest rate environments, accounted for this growth.

Average certificates of deposit (CDs) declined from $305.7 million for the March 2010 quarter to $219.4 million for the March 2011 quarter, a decline of $86.3 million or 28.2 percent. The Corporation allowed higher cost CDs to run-off, and replaced those funds with lower cost, more stable core deposits.

From December 31, 2010 to March 31, 2011, total deposits increased $12.1 million or 1.0 percent. The Corporation’s checking, savings and money market balances increased $26.3 million, while higher costing CD balances declined by $14.4 million.

Mr. Kissel commented, “Our continued growth in core deposits coupled with our reduced reliance on higher cost certificates of deposit, has reduced our cost of funds, and enhanced our franchise value.”

PGB Trust and Investments

PGB Trust and Investments generated $2.7 million in fee income in the first quarter of 2011, compared to $2.4 million in the same quarter of 2010. The market value of the assets under administration of the Trust Division increased from $1.89 billion at March 31, 2010 to just under $2.00 billion at March 31, 2011.

Craig C. Spengeman, President of PGB Trust & Investments commented, “We continue to see increases in our asset management business and related recurring fee income. We also continue to add new clients, as individuals seek our professional advice. We are pleased with the performance of our assets under administration - our performance reflects the sound financial management of our trust and investment professionals.”
