Parke Bancorp, Inc. Announces a 8.5% Increase in Quarterly Earnings, a 15.4% Increase Year-to-Date

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J., July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Parke Bancorp, Inc. ("Parke Bancorp") (NASDAQ: "PKBK"), the parent company of Parke Bank, announced its operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Parke Bancorp reported net income available to common shareholders of $1.73 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to net income of $1.60 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, an increase of 8.5%. The increase was due primarily to a $1.05 million decrease in the provision for loan losses. The following is a recap of other significant items that impacted the second quarter of 2013 compared to the same quarter last year: a $272,000 decrease in net interest income primarily attributable to lower loan rates; a $214,000 increase in gain on sale of SBA loans; a $446,000 decrease in loss on other real estate owned ("OREO"); increased compensation and benefits expense of $314,000 resulting from additional staff, salary increases and increased benefit costs; a $1.14 million increase in income tax expense due to a change in tax treatment for bank owned life insurance ("BOLI") income during the 2012 quarter. Net income available to common shareholders year-to-date was $3.62 million or $0.61 per diluted common share, compared to $3.13 million, or $0.53 per diluted common share, for the six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of 15.4%.

At June 30, 2013, Parke Bancorp's total assets had decreased to $738.36 million from $770.48 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $32.12 million, or 4.2%, due to a decline in cash and cash equivalents.

Parke Bancorp's total loans increased to $644.02 million at June 30, 2013 from $629.71 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $14.31 million or 2.3%.

At June 30, 2013, Parke Bancorp had $45.25 million in nonperforming loans representing 6.2% of total assets, a decrease from $47.55 million at December 31, 2012. OREO at June 30, 2013 was $23.67 million, compared to $26.06 million at December 31, 2012. OREO consisted of 24 properties, the largest being a condominium development recorded at $12.83 million. Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonperforming loans and OREO) represented 9.4% of total assets at June 30, 2013 as compared to 9.6% of total assets at December 31, 2012. Loans past due 30 to 89 days were $5.62 million at June 30, 2013, a decrease of $1.00 million from the previous quarter.

Parke Bancorp's total borrowings decreased to $38.77 million from $43.85 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $5.08 million or 11.6%.

Total shareholders' equity increased to $85.88 million at June 30, 2013 from $83.64 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $2.24 million or 2.7%, due to the retention of earnings. In addition, during the second quarter, the Company redeemed the outstanding warrant that was issued to the US Treasury in connection with the TARP, reducing shareholders' equity by $1.65 million.

Vito S. Pantilione, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parke Bancorp and Parke Bank, provided the following statement:

"Continued low interest rates has put pressure on the banking industry's net interest margin, which when combined with the weak demand and high competition in generating new loans, creates critical challenges in maintaining bank profitability. These challenges make it even more important that our bank increased net income 15.4% in the second quarter. The key metrics of our bank, including non-performing loans, OREO, delinquencies and allowance for loan losses, continue to improve, although not as quickly as we would like to see. We continue to work very hard to control our expenses in an environment of increased regulatory requirements. This continues to play a major role in the strength of our earnings. We are very happy to have been able to retire the TARP warrant, which helps support the investment of our shareholders."
