PEAPACK-GLADSTONE FINANCIAL CORPORATION

REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR RESULTS AND

DECLARES ITS QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND

Bedminster, N.J. – January 25, 2019 –

Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select Market: PGC) (the “Company”) recorded net income of $44.17 million and diluted earnings per share of $2.31 for the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to $36.50 million and $2.03, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2017, reflecting increases of $7.67 million, or 21%, and $0.28 per share, or 14%, respectively.

The Company’s total revenue increased $13.59 million when comparing the 2018 year to the 2017 year. Of the total revenue increase, $10.07 million (or 74%) was provided by increased wealth management fee income.  Douglas L. Kennedy, President and CEO, said “Our Strategy has driven continued growth in our wealth management business, both organically and through acquisition. Our wealth management focus provides a more stable and predictable revenue stream over time than other sources of income.”

For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, the Company recorded net income of $10.73 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.55, compared to $10.37 million and $0.56 for the same three-month period last year. The 2018 quarter included a $4.39 million loss on sale of multifamily loans and a $405,000 write down of intangible assets (non-taxable), partially offset by $3.00 million of life insurance proceeds related to the December 31, 2018 passing of the founder and managing principle of Murphy Capital Management (also non-taxable). These three items reduced net income by $655,000 and reduced earnings per share by $0.04 for the December 2018 quarter.
