Stocks in this article: NBBC

GREENSBORO, N.C., July 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewBridge Bancorp (Nasdaq:NBBC) today reported a sharp increase in earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 over the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Net income available to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $10.9 million, compared to $192,000 reported in the second quarter of 2012. Earnings per diluted common share were $0.38, an increase from $0.01 per share a year ago. For the six-month period ended June 30, 2013, net income available to common shareholders totaled $14.9 million, compared to $1.0 million reported for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012. Earnings per diluted common share were $0.51, an increase of $0.45 from the $0.06 per share reported a year ago. The three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2013 benefitted from a $6.6 million income tax benefit associated with the reversal of a previously recorded valuation allowance against the Company's deferred tax asset.

"Our second quarter results show significantly improved earnings, enhanced asset quality, strong organic loan growth and the retirement of a substantial portion of the Company's TARP obligation," said Pressley A. Ridgill, President and Chief Executive Officer of NewBridge.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income shrank $913,000 to $15.4 million for the quarter ending June 30, 2013 compared to the quarter ending June 30, 2012. For the six-month period, net interest income declined $2.0 million to $30.5 million compared to the six-month period ended June 30, 2012. The reductions were due primarily to compression of the net interest margin, which declined 19 basis points to 3.97% for the three-month period and 21 basis points to 3.94% for the six-month period compared to the prior year. For the three-month period, liability costs fell 18 basis points; however, earning asset yields fell 37 basis points. The Bank's investment portfolio experienced the greatest decline. Investment yields were 3.21% for the 2013 second quarter, a reduction of 63 basis points compared to the same period a year ago, due to the sustained low interest rate environment. The net interest margin increased five basis points from 3.92% in the 2013 first quarter to 3.97% for the 2013 second quarter due to a higher yield on loans from improved asset quality and a reduced reliance on the lower yielding investment portfolio.
