Broadway Financial Corporation Announces Results for

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018

 

LOS ANGELES, CA — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 13, 2019 — Broadway Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (NASDAQ Capital Market: BYFC), parent company of Broadway Federal Bank, f.s.b. (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $275 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to a net loss of $399 thousand, or ($0.01) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2017.  Results for the fourth quarter of 2018 included a tax benefit of $208 thousand for low income tax credits.  Results for the fourth quarter of 2017 included tax expense of $519 thousand to adjust the Company’s deferred tax asset for the decrease in the federal corporate tax rate to 21% from 34% due to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

 

Pretax earnings for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $96 thousand compared to $244 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2017.  Results for the fourth quarter of 2018 included an increase of $104 thousand in loan loss provision recapture and a decrease of $269 thousand in non-interest expense compared to the fourth quarter of 2017.  These items were offset by lower net interest income of $161 thousand and lower gain on sale of loans of $127 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the fourth quarter of 2017.  Also, the Bank received a grant of $227 thousand from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions (“CDFI”) Fund during the fourth quarter of 2017, while no grants were received during the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company reported net income of $815 thousand, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to $1.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2017.  Pretax earnings were $871 thousand during calendar year 2018, compared to $3.7 million in 2017.  The lower pretax earnings during 2018 were attributable to a decrease of $1.6 million in net interest income and a decrease of $1.7 million in non-interest income, partially offset by a decrease of $281 thousand in non-interest expense and an increase of $154 thousand in loan loss provision recapture.  Non-interest income for 2017 included an insurance litigation settlement of $1.2 million and a higher gain on the sale of loans of $490 thousand.  Non-interest expense decreased for the year 2018 compared to 2017 because 2017 expenses included costs of $214 thousand associated with the U.S. Treasury’s sale of a portion of its holdings of the Company’s shares.  Also, professional services costs decreased by $63 thousand in 2018 compared to 2017.

 

Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Bradshaw, commented, “I am pleased to announce that Broadway was profitable during the fourth quarter of 2018 and the full calendar year, despite a difficult interest rate environment that has compressed net interest margins for the banking industry.  Furthermore, I am very pleased to report that the Bank had only one delinquent loan at year end, which had a balance of just $35 thousand.”

 

“As of the start of 2019, we have capacity to increase our loan portfolio by approximately 19% under our current regulatory loan concentration guidelines, which were increased during the final few months of the year.  We continue to be focused on building our loan portfolio with new multi-family loans and non-multi-family commercial real estate loans, including construction loans, which typically generate superior margins to those earned from the Bank’s prime single-family residential loans.  These types of loans should generate improved economics for the Company, as the increase in the Bank’s portfolio of more profitable loans
