As further discussed in the footnotes, “operating earnings” and “cash earnings,” “tangible assets” and “average tangible assets,” “tangible stockholders’ equity” and “average tangible stockholders’ equity,” and the related measures are non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company also reported non-GAAP operating earnings ("operating earnings") of $131.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the current second quarter, and non-GAAP cash earnings ("cash earnings") of $141.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share. The Company’s second quarter 2012 cash earnings contributed $10.5 million more to tangible stockholders’ equity than its second quarter 2012 GAAP earnings alone. (1)(2)(3)

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company reported GAAP earnings of $249.5 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, up from $242.6 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, in the year-earlier six months. The Company’s current six-month GAAP earnings generated a 1.30% return on average tangible assets and a 16.75% return on average tangible stockholders’ equity. (3)

The Company’s current six-month operating earnings rose $18.6 million, or 8.1%, year-over-year to $248.9 million, equivalent to a $0.04, or 7.7%, increase in diluted operating earnings per share to $0.56. The Company’s current six-month operating earnings generated a 1.30% return on average tangible assets and a 16.72% return on average tangible stockholders’ equity. In addition, the Company reported cash earnings of $269.8 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, for the current six-month period, which added $20.4 million, or 8.2%, more to tangible capital than its GAAP earnings alone. (1)(2)(3)

Commenting on the Company's second quarter results, President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph R. Ficalora stated, “We’re obviously pleased by the strength of our second quarter performance, especially in view of the challenges posed by the narrowing spreads between short- and long-term interest rates. Our earnings rose as loan demand grew in our traditional market--multi-family lending--and in the nationwide market for one-to-four family loans served by our mortgage bank.

“Multi-family loans now account for $18.2 billion, or 68.6%, of our loans held for investment, with much of the second quarter’s growth stemming from refinancing activity. As refinancing activity surged, so too did our prepayment penalty income, supporting margin expansion as well as earnings growth. In the second quarter of 2012, prepayment penalty income added $32.0 million to our net interest income; as a result, our margin rose on a linked-quarter basis to 3.30%.

“At the same time as our net interest income grew, so too did our non-interest income, reflecting a significant rise in mortgage banking revenues. In the second quarter of 2012, mortgage banking income rose to $58.3 million, exceeding the trailing-quarter amount by 65.9%. The growth in total revenues contributed to our recording our best efficiency ratio in several quarters: 38.12%.

“The quarter’s highlights also extend to the quality of our assets, as the balances of non-performing loans, other real estate owned, and net charge-offs all declined. Non-performing assets represented 0.69% of total assets at the end of June, as compared to 0.98% at the end of December, and as compared to the peak of 1.77% at March 31, 2010. In terms of dollars, non-performing assets totaled $299.3 million at the end of the quarter, reflecting a six-month decline of $111.1 million and a $451.5 million reduction from the peak amount.

“In addition, net charge-offs represented 0.05% of average loans in the current second quarter, an improvement from 0.09% in last year's second quarter and consistent with the measure in the first quarter of this year. Also of note, loans 30 to 89 days past due declined $73.1 million, or 65.5%, from the December 31st balance and $234.4 million, or 85.9%, from the peak in December 2009.

Board of Directors Declares $0.25 per Share Dividend, Payable on August 17th

“Reflecting the strength of our earnings, which reinforced our already strong capital position, the Board of Directors last night declared our 34th consecutive quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share. The dividend is payable on August 17th to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 7, 2012,” Mr. Ficalora said.

Balance Sheet Summary

Assets

At June 30, 2012, the Company recorded total assets of $43.5 billion, up $449.2 million from the March 31st balance and $1.5 billion from the balance at December 31, 2011.

Loans

At June 30, 2012, loans, net, represented $30.9 billion, or 71.0%, of total assets, reflecting a three-month increase of $340.8 million and a six-month increase of $726.4 million. Included in the June 30th balance were non-covered loans held for investment of $26.4 billion, loans held for sale of $1.1 billion, and covered loans of $3.5 billion.

Non-Covered Loans Held for Investment

Loans held for investment represented $26.5 billion, or 60.9%, of total assets at the end of the second quarter, comparable to the trailing quarter-end balance and $959.9 million higher than the balance at December 31st.

Multi-family loans represented $18.2 billion, or 68.6%, of total loans held for investment at the end of the quarter, and were up $417.1 million from the March 31st balance and $753.5 million from the balance at December 31st. In addition, originations of multi-family loans totaled $1.3 billion in the current second quarter, reflecting a linked-quarter increase of $226.9 million and a $736.8 million decline year-over-year. The growth in the portfolio was driven by a surge in refinancing activity as market interest rates remained at historically low levels. At June 30, 2012, the average multi-family loan had a principal balance of $4.1 million and the portfolio had an expected weighted average life of 2.9 years.

Commercial real estate (“CRE”) loans represented $7.2 billion, or 27.0%, of held-for-investment loans at the close of the second quarter, reflecting a linked-quarter decrease of $419.4 million and a $302.5 million increase from the balance at December 31st. The linked-quarter reduction was in line with management’s expectations and primarily reflects participations of an interest in certain larger CRE loans. Originations of CRE loans totaled $528.4 million in the current second quarter, reflecting a linked-quarter reduction of $387.9 million and a more modest year-over-year decrease of $90.7 million. At June 30, 2012, the average CRE loan had a principal balance of $4.3 million and the portfolio had an expected weighted average life of 3.4 years.

The portfolios of acquisition, development, and construction (“ADC”) loans and other loans declined over the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. ADC loans represented $390.5 million, or 1.5%, of total loans held for investment at the end of the second quarter, while other loans represented $637.5 million, or 2.4%. Included in the latter balance were $581.8 million of commercial and industrial (“C&I”) loans.

Non-Covered Loans Held for Sale

The portfolio of loans held for sale largely consists of one-to-four family loans that are originated throughout the country by the Company’s mortgage banking subsidiary, NYCB Mortgage Company, LLC, primarily for sale to government-sponsored enterprises ("GSEs"). Originations of one-to-four family loans held for sale rose $180.2 million linked-quarter and $1.5 billion year-over-year to $2.6 billion in the three months ended June 30, 2012.

The increase in production in the current second quarter was attributable to the historically low level of residential mortgage interest rates, which continued to trigger a strong volume of refinancing activity and new home purchases. While the balance of loans held for sale totaled $1.1 billion at June 30, 2012, the average balance of such loans was $859.7 million during the second quarter, comparable to the average balance in the trailing quarter and $471.4 million higher than the average balance in the second quarter of last year.

Covered Loans

Primarily reflecting repayments, covered loans declined $127.7 million and $236.9 million, respectively, from the balances at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, to $3.5 billion at June 30, 2012. All of the Company’s covered loans were acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions and are covered by loss sharing agreements with the FDIC.

Pipeline

The current loan pipeline is approximately $4.4 billion, including loans held for investment of approximately $1.8 billion and one-to-four family loans held for sale of approximately $2.6 billion.

Asset Quality

The following discussion pertains only to the Company's portfolio of non-covered loans held for investment and non-covered other real estate owned ("OREO").

The Company’s asset quality reflected continued improvement, as non-performing non-covered loans declined to $252.0 million at the close of the second quarter, a $73.8 million, or 22.7%, improvement from the balance at December 31, 2011. Non-performing non-covered loans thus represented 0.84% of total loans at the end of the second quarter, an improvement from 1.11% at December 31st. OREO also declined during this time, to $47.3 million, reflecting a $37.3 million, or 44.1%, reduction from the balance at year-end.

Reflecting the improvements in non-performing non-covered loans and OREO, non-performing non-covered assets totaled $299.3 million at the close of the second quarter, down $111.1 million, or 27.1%, from the December 31st amount.

The following table provides a summary of the Company's non-performing non-covered assets at the respective period ends:
     
June 30, March 31, December 31,
(dollars in thousands) 2012 2012 2011
Non-performing non-covered mortgage loans:      
Multi-family $ 156,711 $ 188,778 $ 205,064
Commercial real estate 54,888 63,347 68,032
Acquisition, development, and construction 24,996 36,599 29,886
One-to-four family   8,977   9,851   11,907
Total non-performing non-covered mortgage loans 245,572 298,575 314,889
Other non-performing non-covered loans   6,434   7,549   10,926

Total non-performing non-covered loans
$ 252,006 $ 306,124 $ 325,815

Non-covered other real estate owned
  47,301   60,890   84,567
Total non-performing non-covered assets $ 299,307 $ 367,014 $ 410,382
 
Non-performing non-covered loans to total loans 0.84 % 1.01 % 1.11 %
Non-performing non-covered assets to total assets 0.69 % 0.85 % 0.98 %
 

The improvement in asset quality was further reflected in a decline in the balance of loans 30 to 89 days past due. At June 30, 2012, such past due loans totaled $38.6 million, down $73.1 million, or 65.5%, from the balance at December 31st. Reflecting the improvements in non-performing loans and loans 30 to 89 days past due, total delinquencies amounted to $337.9 million at the close of the second quarter, down $184.2 million, or 35.3%, from the balance at December 31st.

Net charge-offs also declined in the current second quarter, on both a linked-quarter basis and year-over-year. In the three months ended June 30, 2012, net charge-offs totaled $13.9 million, reflecting a $1.7 million decrease from the trailing-quarter level and a $13.0 million decrease from the year-earlier amount. As a result, net charge-offs represented 0.05% of average loans in the current second quarter, consistent with the measure recorded in the trailing quarter and four basis points lower than the measure in the year-earlier three months.

The allowance for losses on non-covered loans was $137.9 million at the close of the second quarter as compared to $137.3 million at December 31st. The June 30th balance represented 54.73% of total non-performing non-covered loans, an increase from 42.14%.

Securities

Securities totaled $4.3 billion at June 30, 2012, representing 9.8% of total assets, a $612.7 million decrease from the March 31st balance and a $275.4 million decrease from the balance at December 31st. GSE securities represented 90.6% of the balance at the end of June.

The decline in securities was primarily due to the low interest rate environment. With market interest rates at historical lows, reducing the yields on such assets, the Company chose to limit the deployment of its cash flows into securities. As a result, securities available for sale declined $161.2 million and $313.2 million, respectively, to $411.5 million over the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. At $3.9 billion, securities held to maturity were down $451.5 million from the March 31st balance and up $37.7 million from the balance at December 31, 2011.

Funding Sources

Largely reflecting the assumption of deposits in the Aurora Bank transaction, deposits totaled $25.0 billion at the close of the second quarter, up $2.1 billion from the March 31st balance and $2.7 billion from the balance at December 31, 2011. Certificates of deposit (“CDs”) accounted for the bulk of the increase, rising $2.4 billion and $2.5 billion, respectively, from the earlier levels to $9.9 billion at June 30, 2012. CDs thus represented 39.4% of total deposits, as compared to 32.7% and 33.1%, respectively, at the earlier dates.

Core deposits (NOW and money market accounts, savings accounts, and non-interest-bearing deposits) totaled $15.1 billion at the close of the second quarter, reflecting a $297.0 million decrease from the March 31st balance and a $243.1 million increase from the balance at December 31st. The three-month decline was the net effect of a $183.0 million decrease in NOW and money market accounts to $8.7 billion, a $167.3 million decrease in non-interest-bearing accounts to $2.3 billion, and a $53.4 million rise in savings accounts to $4.1 billion. The six-month increase in core deposits was the net effect of a $153.5 million increase in savings accounts, a $154.2 million increase in non-interest-bearing accounts, and a $64.6 million decrease in NOW and money market accounts.

Wholesale borrowings totaled $12.2 billion at the close of the second quarter, down $1.6 billion, or 11.6%, from the March 31st balance and $1.3 billion, or 9.5%, from the balance at December 31st. The June 30th balance represented 28.0% of total assets, down from 32.0% at each of the earlier dates. Other borrowings also declined, to $4.3 million, as $90.0 million of fixed rate senior notes that had been issued in 2008 under the Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program matured on June 22, 2012.

Stockholders’ Equity

At June 30, 2012, stockholders’ equity totaled $5.6 billion, representing 12.90% of total assets and a book value per share of $12.78. The June 30th balance was $31.6 million higher than the March 31, 2012 balance and $45.8 million higher than the balance at December 31, 2011. At March 31st and December 31st, stockholders’ equity represented 12.97% and 13.24% of total assets, and book values per share of $12.71 and $12.73, respectively.

Tangible stockholders’ equity totaled $3.1 billion at June 30, 2012, representing 7.64% of tangible assets and a tangible book value of $7.14 per share. Excluding AOCL, the ratio of adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity to adjusted tangible assets equaled 7.79% at June 30, 2012. (3)

The Company’s subsidiary banks also reported solid levels of capital at the end of the current second quarter, and continued to exceed the requirements for classification as “well capitalized” institutions under the FDIC Improvement Act. At June 30, 2012, New York Community Bank and New York Commercial Bank had respective Tier 1 leverage capital ratios of 8.53% and 13.30%; respective Tier 1 risk-based capital ratios of 12.82% and 16.78%; and respective total risk-based capital ratios of 13.54% and 17.43%. The minimum regulatory requirements for classification as a “well capitalized” institution are a leverage capital ratio of 5.00%, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 6.00%, and a total risk-based capital ratio of 10.00%.

Earnings Summary for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2012

The Company generated GAAP earnings of $131.2 million in the current second quarter, up from $118.3 million and $119.5 million, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months. The current second quarter amount was equivalent to $0.30 per diluted share, a $0.03 increase from $0.27 per diluted share in each of the earlier periods.

Operating earnings totaled $131.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the current second quarter, up from $117.8 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the trailing quarter, and $113.2 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the second quarter of last year.

In the first two quarters of 2012, the differences between the Company’s GAAP and operating earnings were solely attributable to net securities gains, with second quarter after-tax gains amounting to $84,000 and first quarter after-tax gains amounting to $443,000. While after-tax net securities gains accounted for $11.2 million of the difference between the Company’s GAAP and operating earnings in the second quarter of 2011, the Company also recorded a $5.9 million after-tax gain on the disposition of its insurance premium financing business during that quarter, as well as a $10.8 million after-tax loss on the other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) of securities. (2)

Net Interest Income

Net interest income rose $8.2 million linked-quarter to $296.7 million, notwithstanding the continued flattening of the yield curve as intermediate-term interest rates declined to historical lows in the three months ended June 30, 2012. As interest rates moved lower, refinancing activity increased in the multi-family and commercial real estate markets, triggering an increase in prepayment penalty income on a linked-quarter basis and year-over-year. Specifically, prepayment penalty income rose to $32.0 million in the current second quarter, from $17.5 million and $25.9 million, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months.

While net interest income declined year-over-year, the amount of the reduction was a comparatively modest $5.3 million. In addition to the increase in prepayment penalty income, the impact of the yield curve on the Company’s net interest income was tempered by an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets, and a continued reduction in the Company’s funding costs.

Linked-Quarter Comparison

The linked-quarter increase in net interest income was the net effect of an $8.3 million rise in interest income to $455.0 million and a $100,000 increase in interest expense to $158.3 million.

The modest increase in interest income was driven by the aforementioned increase in prepayment penalty income, which contributed 35 basis points to the average yield on interest-earning assets and 41 basis points to the average yield on loans. While the average balance of interest-earning assets rose $363.0 million to $35.9 billion, the average yield rose four basis points to 5.07%. The interest income generated by loans totaled $406.5 million, and accounted for the majority of the increase in interest income overall. The increase in the interest income from loans was the result of a $184.9 million rise in the average balance of such assets to $30.8 billion and a seven-basis point increase in the average yield to 5.28%. Securities and money market investments accounted for the remaining $48.5 million of interest income produced in the current second quarter, comparable to the level produced in the first quarter of this year. While the average balance of such assets rose $178.1 million linked-quarter, to $5.1 billion, the average yield on such assets fell 14 basis points during this time, to 3.79%.

The modest increase in interest expense was the net effect of a $113.2 million reduction in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities to $33.5 billion and a one-basis point rise in the average cost of funds to 1.90%. Interest-bearing deposits accounted for $36.4 million of the interest expense generated during the quarter, reflecting a $462,000 increase from the trailing-quarter amount. The modest rise was the net effect of a $323.2 million increase in the average balance of such deposits to $20.5 billion and a one-basis point reduction in the average cost to 0.71%. Although the Aurora Bank transaction added $2.2 billion of deposits to the current second quarter-end balance, the effect on the average balance and the average cost of deposits was limited in view of the June 28, 2012 closing date.

The linked-quarter increase in interest expense was tempered by a $362,000 decline in the interest expense produced by borrowed funds to $121.9 million, as the average balance of such funds fell $436.5 million to $13.0 billion, exceeding the impact of a 12-basis point rise in the average cost of such funds to 3.78%.

Year-Over-Year Comparison

The year-over-year reduction in net interest income was the net effect of a $14.0 million decline in interest income and an $8.7 million decline in interest expense.

While the decline in interest income was tempered by a $1.4 billion rise in the average balance of interest-earning assets, the benefit of that increase was exceeded by the impact of a 37-basis point reduction in the average yield. The interest income produced by loans fell $1.8 million year-over-year, as the impact of a 42-basis point decline in the average yield on such assets exceeded the benefit of a $2.1 billion increase in the average balance. In addition, the interest income produced by securities and money market investments fell $12.2 million as the average balance of such assets declined $746.4 million and the average yield declined 36 basis points.

The year-over-year reduction in interest expense was the net effect of a $429.8 million increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities and a 13-basis point decline in the average cost of funds. The interest expense produced by deposits fell $3.1 million during this time, as the impact of a $465.1 million rise in the average balance was modestly tempered by an eight-basis point decline in the average cost of such funds. The interest expense produced by borrowed funds, meanwhile, fell $5.6 million, as a $35.3 million decline in the average balance occurred in tandem with a 15-basis point decline in the average cost of such funds.

Net Interest Margin

The Company’s net interest margin was 3.30% in the current second quarter, reflecting a six-basis point increase from the trailing-quarter measure and a 20-basis point decrease from the measure recorded in the second quarter of last year. The linked-quarter increase was due to the increase in prepayment penalty income, as refinancing activity increased in tandem with the decline in market interest rates. Prepayment penalty income contributed 36 basis points to the margin in the current second quarter, in contrast to 20 and 30 basis points, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months.

Provisions for Loan Losses

The provision for losses on non-covered loans was $15.0 million in the current second quarter, consistent with the provisions recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2011.

In addition, the Company recorded a provision for losses on covered loans of $18.4 million in the current second quarter, reflecting deterioration in its acquired portfolio of home equity lines of credit and its acquired portfolio of one-to-four family loans. In the year-earlier quarter, the Company recorded an $8.7 million provision for losses on covered loans. The provisions for losses on covered loans recorded in the second quarters of 2012 and 2011 were largely offset by FDIC indemnification income of $14.8 million and $7.6 million, recorded in non-interest income in the respective periods.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income totaled $98.2 million in the current second quarter, reflecting a $36.2 million, or 58.4%, increase from the trailing-quarter level and a $39.3 million, or 66.8%, increase from the year-earlier amount.

Mortgage banking income accounted for the bulk of these increases, having risen $23.2 million and $46.5 million, respectively, from the levels recorded in the trailing and year-earlier quarters, to $58.3 million in the three months ended June 30, 2012. These increases were attributable to the significant volume of one-to-four family loans produced by the Company’s mortgage banking operation, as well as expanded pricing margins and higher servicing income. Included in the current second quarter amount was income from originations of $53.0 million, up from $40.0 million and $9.3 million, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months.

In addition to mortgage banking income, the Company has three other ongoing sources of non-interest income: fee income, income from bank-owned life insurance ("BOLI"), and other income, the latter consisting primarily of revenues from the sale of third-party investment products and revenues generated by a New York Community Bank subsidiary, Peter B. Cannell & Co., Inc. Revenues from these sources totaled $25.0 million in the current second quarter, as compared to $26.1 million and $29.0 million, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months. Including mortgage banking income, non-interest income from ongoing sources rose to $83.3 million in the current second quarter, from $61.3 million and $40.8 million, respectively, in the corresponding periods.

In addition, the Company recorded net securities gains of $141,000 in the current second quarter, in contrast to $718,000 and $18.7 million, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months. While the Company also recorded a $9.8 million gain on business disposition in the second quarter of 2011, the benefit of that gain and the net securities gains recorded during that quarter were tempered by an $18.1 million OTTI loss on securities.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense consists of operating expenses (comprised of compensation and benefits, occupancy and equipment, and general and administrative, or G&A, expenses) and the amortization of core deposit intangibles ("CDI"). In the three months ended June 30, 2012, non-interest expense totaled $155.4 million, up $5.3 million from the trailing-quarter level and comparable to the level recorded in the year-earlier three months.

Operating expenses accounted for $150.5 million of non-interest expense in the current second quarter, reflecting a linked-quarter increase of $5.5 million and a year-over-year increase of $2.6 million. Compensation and benefits expense accounted for $73.6 million of the current second-quarter total, comparable with the levels recorded in the trailing quarter and the year-earlier three months. Occupancy and equipment expense rose $1.4 million and $1.5 million, respectively, during these times to $23.2 million, while G&A expense rose $4.2 million linked-quarter and $757,000 year-over-year to $53.7 million. The linked-quarter increase in G&A expense was largely attributable to the cost of managing and disposing of foreclosed properties as well as a higher level of variable mortgage banking expenses.

Notwithstanding the increase in operating expenses, the Company reported a GAAP efficiency ratio of 38.12% in the current second quarter, as compared to 41.39% and 40.99%, respectively, in the trailing and year-earlier three months. The linked-quarter improvement reflects the increased levels of net interest income and non-interest income, while the year-over-year improvement reflects an increase in non-interest income alone.

Income Tax Expense

Reflecting an increase in pre-tax income, income tax expense totaled $74.8 million in the current second quarter, up $7.8 million on a linked-quarter basis and $12.2 million year-over-year. At $206.0 million, pre-tax income was up $20.8 million from the trailing-quarter level and $23.9 million from the year-earlier amount. In addition, the effective tax rate was 36.3% in the current second quarter, as compared to 36.2% and 34.4%, respectively, in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2011.

Forward-Looking Statements

This earnings release and the associated conference call may include forward-looking statements by the Company and our authorized officers pertaining to such matters as our goals, intentions, and expectations regarding revenues, earnings, loan production, asset quality, and acquisitions, among other matters; our estimates of future costs and benefits of the actions we may take; our assessments of probable losses on loans; our assessments of interest rate and other market risks; and our ability to achieve our financial and other strategic goals.

Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “outlook,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “project,” and other similar words and expressions, and are subject to numerous assumptions, risks, and uncertainties, which change over time. Additionally, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made; the Company does not assume any duty, and does not undertake, to update our forward-looking statements. Furthermore, because forward-looking statements are subject to assumptions and uncertainties, actual results or future events could differ, possibly materially, from those anticipated in our statements, and our future performance could differ materially from our historical results.

Our forward-looking statements are subject to the following principal risks and uncertainties: general economic conditions and trends, either nationally or locally; conditions in the securities markets; changes in interest rates; changes in deposit flows, and in the demand for deposit, loan, and investment products and other financial services; changes in real estate values; changes in the quality or composition of our loan or investment portfolios; changes in competitive pressures among financial institutions or from non-financial institutions; our ability to retain key members of management; our ability to successfully integrate any assets, liabilities, customers, systems, and management personnel we may acquire into our operations, including the deposits we recently assumed from Aurora Bank, and our ability to realize related revenue synergies and cost savings within expected time frames; changes in legislation, regulations, and policies; and a variety of other matters which, by their nature, are subject to significant uncertainties and/or are beyond our control.

Greater detail regarding some of these factors is provided in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and our Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2012, including in the Risk Factors section of those and other SEC reports. Our forward-looking statements may also be subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those we may discuss elsewhere in this news release, our conference call, during investor presentations, or in our SEC filings, which are accessible on our web site and at the SEC’s web site, www.sec.gov.

NEW YORK COMMUNITY BANCORP, INC. RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP EARNINGS (OPERATING EARNINGS) (unaudited)

Although operating earnings are not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we believe that our operating earnings are an important indication of our ability to generate earnings through our fundamental business. Since they exclude the effects of certain items that are unusual and/or difficult to predict, we believe that our operating earnings, although non-GAAP, provide useful supplemental information to both management and investors in evaluating our financial results.

Operating earnings should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating activities, or other income or cash flow statement data calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate our operating earnings may differ from that of other companies reporting non-GAAP measures with similar names.

Reconciliations of our GAAP and operating earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2012, March 31, 2012, and June 30, 2011 and for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 follow:

NEW YORK COMMUNITY BANCORP, INC. RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP EARNINGS AND NON-GAAP EARNINGS (CASH EARNINGS) (unaudited)

Although cash earnings are not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, we believe that they are important because of their contribution to tangible stockholders’ equity. (Please see the discussion and reconciliations of stockholders’ equity and tangible stockholders’ equity that appear under “Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Capital Measures” on page 13 of this release.) We calculate cash earnings by adding back to GAAP earnings certain items that have been charged against them but that are added to, rather than subtracted from, tangible stockholders’ equity. For this reason, we believe that cash earnings, although non-GAAP, are useful to investors seeking to evaluate our financial performance and to compare our performance with other companies in the banking industry that also report cash earnings.

Cash earnings should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating activities, or other income or cash flow statement data calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate cash earnings may differ from that of other companies reporting non-GAAP measures with similar names.

Reconciliations of our GAAP and cash earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2012, March 31, 2012, and June 30, 2011 and for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 follow:

NEW YORK COMMUNITY BANCORP, INC. RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP CAPITAL MEASURES (unaudited)

Although tangible stockholders’ equity, adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity, tangible assets, and adjusted tangible assets are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, management uses these non-GAAP capital measures in their analysis of our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP capital measures are an important indication of our ability to grow both organically and through business combinations, and, with respect to tangible stockholders’ equity and adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity, our ability to pay dividends and to engage in various capital management strategies.

Neither tangible stockholders’ equity, adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity, tangible assets, adjusted tangible assets, nor the related measures should be considered in isolation or as a substitute for stockholders’ equity, total assets, or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate these measures may differ from that of other companies reporting non-GAAP measures with similar names.

Reconciliations of our stockholders’ equity, tangible stockholders’ equity, and adjusted tangible stockholders’ equity; total assets, tangible assets, and adjusted tangible assets; and the related measures at or for the three months ended June 30, 2012, March 31, 2012, and December 31, 2011 and the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 follow:
