27 Jan, 2016, 17:20 ET from Brookline Bancorp, Inc.

BOSTON, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookline Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: BRKL) (the "Company") today announced net income of $13.3 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $12.9 million, or $0.18 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company reported net income of $49.8 million, or $0.71 per basic and diluted share, compared to $43.3 million, or $0.62 per basic and diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2014.

Paul Perrault, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated: "We are pleased to finish 2015 with over 15 percent growth in earnings. During the year we exited the indirect auto business to focus our resources and capital on serving our commercial real estate, commercial and consumer relationships. Excluding the indirect auto business, we grew our loan balances over 10 percent and our demand deposits grew over 7 percent. Our asset quality remains strong and our Company continues to be well-capitalized. I am grateful to all our employees who have demonstrated dedication and commitment to accomplishing these outstanding results. Our Company is solidly positioned to achieve continued success in 2016."

BALANCE SHEET

Total assets at December 31, 2015 increased $202.8 million to $6.0 billion from $5.8 billion at September 30, 2015, and increased $241.4 million from $5.8 billion at December 31, 2014. The increase in total assets of 13.9 percent on an annualized basis during the fourth quarter of 2015 was primarily driven by increases in loans and leases. At December 31, 2015, total loans and leases were $5.0 billion, representing an increase of $166.4 million from September 30, 2015, and an increase of $172.9 million from December 31, 2014. During the fourth quarter of 2015, total loans and leases grew 13.8 percent on an annualized basis. Strong loan growth continued in the total commercial real estate and commercial loan and lease portfolios, which increased $152.7 million during the fourth quarter of 2015, or 15.7 percent on an annualized basis.

Cash, cash equivalents, and investment securities at December 31, 2015 increased $45.5 million to $682.4 million, or 11.3 percent of total assets, as compared to $636.9 million, or 10.9 percent of total assets, at September 30, 2015, and increased approximately $68.4 million from $614.0 million, or 10.6 percent of total assets, at December 31, 2014.

Total deposits at December 31, 2015 increased $161.4 million to $4.3 billion from $4.1 billion at September 30, 2015 and increased $347.9 million from $4.0 billion at December 31, 2014. During the fourth quarter of 2015, balances increased in all deposit account types. Core deposits, which consist of demand checking, NOW, savings, and money market accounts, increased  $138.0 million from September 30, 2015 and increased $206.7 million from December 31, 2014. Core deposits as a percentage of total deposits also increased slightly to 74.7 percent at December 31, 2015 from 74.3 percent at September 30, 2015, but decreased from 76.1 percent at December 31, 2014. The average cost of deposits increased slightly to 0.52 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2015 from 0.51 percent for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

Total borrowings at December 31, 2015 increased $22.8 million to $983.0 million from $960.2 million at September 30, 2015 and decreased $143.4 million from $1.1 billion at December 31, 2014 as proceeds from the sale of indirect automobile loans in the first quarter were used to pay down short term borrowings.

The ratio of stockholders' equity to total assets was 11.05 percent at December 31, 2015, as compared to 11.36 percent at September 30, 2015 and 11.06 percent at December 31, 2014.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Net interest income increased $1.5 million to $50.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2015 from the previous quarter. The net interest margin remained constant at 3.54 percent during the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase in net interest income included the accelerated recognition of $1.0 million related to several acquired loans which paid off during the quarter with the remaining increase of $0.5 million primarily driven by increased interest income from higher loan balances, partially offset by increased interest expense from higher deposit balances.

PROVISION FOR LOAN AND LEASE LOSSES

The Company recorded a provision for loan and lease losses of $1.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, consistent with the previous quarter.

Net charge-offs decreased $0.2 million to $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 from $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2015. The ratio of net charge-offs to average loans on an annualized basis decreased to 11 basis points for the fourth quarter of 2015 from 13 basis points for the third quarter of 2015.

The allowance for loan and lease losses represented 1.14 percent of total loans and leases at December 31, 2015, compared to 1.17 percent at September 30, 2015, and 1.11 percent at December 31, 2014. The allowance for loan and lease losses related to originated loans and leases as a percentage of originated loans and leases was 1.20 percent at December 31, 2015, compared to 1.25 percent at September 30, 2015 and 1.20 percent at December 31, 2014.

NON-INTEREST INCOME

Non-interest income  for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 increased $1.3 million to $6.1 million from $4.8 million for the previous quarter. The increase was primarily driven by an increase of $0.7 million in loan level derivative income, an increase of $0.3 million in loan level derivative mark to market adjustments recorded in other income and an increase of $0.2 million in gain on sales of loans and leases held-for-sale.

NON-INTEREST EXPENSE

Non-interest expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 increased $1.1 million to $32.3 million from $31.3 million for the previous quarter. The increase was primarily driven by an increase of $0.9 million in compensation and employee benefits, largely associated with performance based incentives.

The effective tax rate was 37.0 percent and 35.9 percent for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2015, respectively.
