VALLEY NATIONAL BANCORP REPORTS A 25 PERCENT INCREASE IN SECOND QUARTER 2020 NET INCOME AND STRONG OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

NEW YORK, NY – July 23, 2020 -- Valley National Bancorp (NASDAQ:VLY), the holding company for Valley National Bank, today reported net income for the second quarter 2020 of $95.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share, as compared to the second quarter 2019 earnings of $76.5 million, or $0.22 per diluted common share, and net income of $87.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted common share, for the first quarter 2020.

Key financial highlights for the second quarter:

Loan Portfolio: Loans increased $1.9 billion to $32.3 billion at June 30, 2020 from March 31, 2020. The increase was largely due to approximately $2.2 billion of SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans originated under the CARES Act to aid small- and medium-sized businesses in the second quarter. We also sold approximately $237 million of residential mortgage loans originated for sale rather than investment, resulting in total pre-tax gains of $8.3 million in the second quarter 2020, as compared to $196 million of residential mortgage loans sold in the linked quarter with total pre-tax gains of $4.6 million. See the "Loans" section below for more details.
Net Interest Income and Margin: Net interest income on a tax equivalent basis of $283.5 million for the second quarter 2020 increased $17.2 million as compared to the first quarter 2020. The increase was driven by several factors in the second quarter 2020 including, a 46 basis point decline in our funding costs largely resulting from the lower interest rate environment and a $2.0 billion increase in average loan balances mostly due to the PPP loan originations. Our net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis of 3.00 percent for the second quarter 2020 decreased by 7 basis points from 3.07 percent for the first quarter 2020. See the "Net Interest Income and Margin" section below for additional information.
Allowance and Provision for Credit Losses for Loans: Our allowance for credit losses for loans totaled $319.7 million and $293.4 million at June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, respectively. During the second quarter 2020, the provision for credit losses for loans was $41.1 million as compared to $33.9 million for the first quarter 2020 and a pre-CECL provision of $2.1 million for the second quarter 2019. The reserve build in the second quarter 2020 mainly reflects deterioration in Valley's view of the macroeconomic outlook since the end of the first quarter, higher specific reserves associated with our taxi medallion loan portfolio and additional qualitative management adjustments to reflect the potential for higher levels of credit stress related to COVID-19 impacted borrowers.
Credit Quality: Net loan charge-offs totaled $14.8 million for the second quarter 2020 as compared to $4.8 million for the first quarter 2020 primarily due to the partial charge-off of one
