Commenting on the Company’s second quarter performance, President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph R. Ficalora stated, “While continuing our preparations for the transition to SIFI status, we also maintained our focus on our primary business: the origination of high-quality multi-family loans. Although portfolio growth was tempered by the strategic sale of $426.4 million through participations, the balance of multi-family loans grew at an annualized rate of 5.2% to $26.8 billion, driven by originations of $1.7 billion in the past three months alone. Excluding second-quarter sales, the balance would have risen at an annualized rate of 11.7%.
BALANCE SHEET SUMMARY
The Company recorded total assets of $49.0 billion at the end of the second quarter, reflecting a $520.2 million increase from the March 31st balance and a $1.3 billion reduction from the balance at December 31, 2015. The linked-quarter rise was primarily due to a $667.7 million increase in total loans, net, to $39.1 billion, which was tempered by a $244.2 million decline in securities to $4.0 billion. While loans, net, rose $1.1 billion in the six months ended June 30, 2016, the increase was exceeded by a $2.2 billion decline in securities, largely reflecting calls that occurred in the first three months of this year.
