PRESS RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1ST CONSTITUTION BANCORP
REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2017 RESULTS
AND DECLARES QUARTERLY DIVIDEND OF $0.06 PER SHARE

Cranbury NJ - February 2, 2018 -- 1
ST Constitution Bancorp (NASDAQ: FCCY), the holding company (the “Company”) for 1ST Constitution Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $574,000 and diluted earnings per share of $0.07 for the three months ended December 31, 2017. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, net income was $6.9 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.83.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 included additional estimated income tax expense of $1.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, due to the revaluation of the Company’s net deferred tax assets. As a result of the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Act”) on December 22, 2017, which reduced the maximum federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% beginning in 2018, the Company revalued its net deferred tax assets to reflect the lower federal corporate income tax rate that would be in effect in future years.

In addition, merger-related expenses on an after-tax basis of $188,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, related to the pending merger of New Jersey Community Bank with and into the Bank, were incurred during the fourth quarter of 2017.

As a result of the additional income tax expense and the merger-related expenses, net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 decreased $1.5 million, or 72.1%, compared to the corresponding period of 2016.

Net income excluding the additional income tax expense and merger-related expenses (“Adjusted Net Income”) was $2.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2017. Adjusted Net Income for the three months ended December 31, 2017 increased $417,000, or 20.3%, compared to net income for the three months ended December 31, 2016 of $2.1 million, or $0.25 per diluted share.

For the year ended December 31, 2017, Adjusted Net Income was $8.8 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, compared to net income for the year ended December 31, 2016 of $9.3 million, or $1.14 per diluted share. If the lower federal corporate income tax rate had been in effect in 2017, the Company’s reported 2017 income tax expense of $5.9 million, excluding the $1.7 million of tax expense due to the revaluation of the deferred taxes, would have been approximately $2.9 million, or $1.3 million lower.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share are non-GAAP measures. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the reported net income and net income per diluted share is included in this release.

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share that will be paid on February 27, 2018 to shareholders of record on February 16, 2018.
