(NYSE: NYCB) is one of the 25 largest bank holding

We operate our branches through two banks with eight local divisions, reflecting
our growth through seven traditional mergers and two FDIC-assisted transactions
between the years 2000 and 2010. Established in 1859, New York Community Bank
a New York State-chartered savings bank with 242 branches throughout our five-state
franchise; established in 2005 and also New York State-chartered, New York Commercial
has 30 branches--all in Metro New York.
In addition to fueling the growth of our deposit franchise, acquisitions have fueled
the growth of our interest-earning assets and, in particular, our multi-family loans.
We are the leading producer of multi-family loans for portfolio in New York City,
with an emphasis on rent-regulated buildings that feature below-market rents. At
the end of December, our portfolio totaled $23.8 billion, representing 72.2% of total
loans held for investment and a compound annual growth rate of 9.3% over the past
In addition to our expertise in multi-family lending, we are known for our record
of superior asset quality. In the past 20 years—including those of the Great Recession—few
of our non-performing assets resulted in actual losses. In fact, net charge-offs
have represented a modest 0.04% of average loans over the course of our public life.
We also are known for our highly efficient operation, with an average efficiency
ratio of 38.22% during the same time.
