Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation Reports Results Of Its Initial Loan Portfolio Review Following Hurricane Sandy

Stocks in this article: PGC

BEDMINSTER, N.J., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select Market:PGC) (the Company) reported that it has completed the first phase of its review of its loan portfolio following Hurricane Sandy. Amounts outstanding or committed on residential first and second mortgage loans and commercial mortgage loans secured by properties located in a designated flood zone within New Jersey Coastal towns total $15.9 million, or 1.5% of the outstanding loan portfolio as of September 30, 2012. The weighted average loan-to-value ratio at origination of such loans was 56%, implying property values at loan origination of approximately $28 million.  Further, all such properties were required to carry flood insurance, resulting in $8.8 million of potential flood insurance coverage.     

Doug Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The lower loan-to-value ratios, and the existence of flood insurance in appropriate amounts reflect our strong underwriting and administration of our loan portfolios. Further, given this information, we believe we will not incur any material losses from this portion of our portfolio due to the effects of the storm."

The Company continues to evaluate the effects of the storm in general, and on its loan portfolio, and, although there can be no assurances, does not expect the overall effect of the storm to materially affect financial performance.

  • unexpected changes in interest rates;
  • inability to successfully grow our business;
  • inability to manage our growth;
  • a continued or unexpected decline in real estate values within our market areas;

  • higher than expected FDIC insurance premiums;
