WOODBRIDGE, N.J., Jan. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northfield Bancorp, Inc . (Nasdaq:NFBK), the holding company for Northfield Bank, reported basic earnings per common share of $0.09 and $0.35 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, compared to basic earnings per common share of $0.06 and $0.30 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, and diluted earnings per common share of $0.09 and $0.34 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, compared to diluted earnings per common share of $0.06 and $0.29 for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively.

"This is a landmark year for Northfield as we completed our transition to a fully public company," noted John W. Alexander, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Northfield. "This accomplishment is highlighted by a 16.7 percent increase in earnings per share, and the payment of $0.49 in total dividends for 2013, which included a $0.25 special dividend. This growth was accomplished, in part, from an over 20% increase in our net loans held-for-investment, fueled by an almost 43 percent increase in multifamily loans. We were able to maintain a stable net interest margin in a very competitive environment as we continued to reposition the balance sheet away from lower yielding securities."
