Sterling Bancorp Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights


Southfield, Michigan, August 3, 2020

 — Sterling Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: SBT) (the Company”), the holding company of Sterling Bank and Trust, F.S.B. (the Bank”), today reported unaudited financial highlights for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020 reflecting net income for the quarter despite increased operating expenses incurred in connection with the previously disclosed issues related to the Bank’s residential lending practices and an increased provision for loan losses.


Q2 2020 Financial Highlights


·Net income of $3.6 million

·Net income per diluted share of $0.07

·Non-interest expense of $20.0 million, including $8.3 million of professional fees and other expenses incurred in connection with the previously disclosed issues related to the Bank’s residential lending practices

·Provision for loan losses of $4.3 million, reflecting our evaluation of the current and expected impacts of prevailing economic conditions on our loan portfolios under the incurred loss model

·Net interest income before provision for loan losses of $27.0 million

·Net interest margin of 3.08%

·Non-interest income of $1.3 million

·Shareholders’ equity of $336.1 million

·Common shares outstanding of 50.0 million at June 30, 2020

·Bank capital ratios continue to be in excess of minimum ratios required to be considered “well-capitalized” with a leverage ratio of 10.62%, a total risk-based capital ratio of 20.95% and a common equity tier one ratio of 19.68%

·The Company’s consolidated leverage ratio of 9.33%, risk-based capital ratio of 21.92% and common equity tier one ratio of 17.29% continue to exceed minimum regulatory capital requirements

·Total deposits of $2.892 billion

·Total residential loan originations of $83.2 million

·Total gross loans, including loans held for investment and loans held for sale, of $2.767 billion

·Total loans delinquent 30 days or more increased during the quarter to $145 million (or 5.24% of total loans), from $31 million (or 1.10% of total loans); nonperforming loans increased to $54 million (or 1.96% of total loans) from $11 million (or 0.40% of total loans)

·Loans in active forbearance at quarter end total 210 with an aggregate UPB of $126 million; comprised of $119 million of residential mortgage loans and $7 million of commercial real estate loans


Our second quarter results also reflect the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, which has contributed to the increase in our non-performing loans. In addition, a change in the methodology used to determine when a loan is reported as past due that incorporates an industry standard that is more conservative and comparable to our peers resulted in approximately $70 million additional delinquent loans than under the previous method. The increase in nonperforming loans is primarily in our residential mortgage and construction portfolios. The change in methodology also resulted in approximately $25 million of loans shifting into the nonperforming category. All loans in forbearance are eligible modifications under Section 4013 of the 2020 CARES Act and therefore are excluded from the delinquency and nonperforming loan totals. A typical loan forbearance includes a 120 day deferral of principal and interest with an extension of the maturity date sufficient to recapture the deferred payments.


Our net interest margin reflects an increase in low yielding liquid assets, the reversal of interest income due to the increase in nonperforming loans and loan and deposit repricing driven by the lower interest rate environment. Liquid assets averaged $342 million higher during the second quarter and generated an average yield that was 103 basis points lower than the previous quarter.


Operating expenses remain elevated as the Company continues to utilize the services of professional firms to assist in its efforts to resolve previously disclosed matters related to the Advantage Loan Program as well as with the Bank’s internal review of the program.
