First, our branches remained open, while adopting measures to protect customers and employees alike. Second, in one capacity or another, the entire bank was involved with processing over 5,000 applications, resulting in almost $1 billion in Paycheck Protection Program loans for our existing customers and the one thousand new customers who came to us because of BNB’s reputation for superior customer service. This program also generated approximately $30 million in fees which will flow into income over the life of the loans. Another milestone event that occurred is our planned merger-of-equals with Dime Community.  We consider this a unique opportunity to capture incremental share in a market where we have low penetration by doing what BNB does best – acquiring and retaining business banking customers. This merger of complementary business models and geographies allows BNB and Dime Community to optimize best-in-class practices, consolidate vendor relationships to reduce expenses and expand our product offerings.”Net Earnings and Returns
Net income in the 2020 second quarter was $10.7 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, which was comparable with the 2019 second quarter, driven primarily by higher net interest income, partially offset by lower non-interest income, higher provision for credit losses, and higher non-interest expense. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $20.0 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared to $23.6 million, or $1.18 per diluted share, in 2019.
