Bancorp Of New Jersey, Inc. Announces Record First Quarter Earnings

FORT LEE, N.J., May 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bancorp of New Jersey, Inc. (NYSE MKT:BKJ) (the "Company"), the holding company of Bank of New Jersey, reported its strongest first quarter net income. Net income for the first quarter of 2013 exceeded $1.1 million compared to $897 thousand for the first quarter of 2012, representing an increase of $248 thousand, or approximately 27.6%. Earnings per diluted share reached $0.21 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $0.17 per diluted share for the same period in 2012. The net income generated during the first quarter of 2013 represents the strongest start to a fiscal year in the Company's history. The net income generated during this quarter also represents the Company's twenty-fifth consecutive quarter of profitability.

During the first quarter of 2013, net interest income increased by 14.4%, or approximately $575 thousand, to $4.6 million from $4.0 million for the first quarter of 2012. In addition to the net interest income increase, the provision for loan losses experienced a decrease of approximately $155 thousand, or 52.5%, due to strength and stability in the Company's loan portfolio and other factors. Non-interest expense, net of non-interest income, increased $322 thousand, or 14.6%, primarily related to increased operating costs associated with branch expansion.

Bancorp of New Jersey's total assets decreased to $561.5 million at March 31, 2013 compared to $571.4 million at December 31, 2012. Total loans reached $445.5 million at March 31, 2013 compared to $435.7 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of approximately $9.8 million, or approximately 2.2%. Total deposits decreased to $505.1 million at March 31, 2013 from $515.7 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of approximately $10.6 million, or approximately 2.1%. Stockholders' equity grew to $54.4 million at March 31, 2013 from $53.7 million at December 31, 2012.
