CEO COMMENTARY

Commenting on the Company's operating results and performance, President and Chief Executive Officer, Thomas R. Cangemi said: "New York Community had another strong year in 2022, which was capped off by the closing of the Flagstar acquisition, our largest acquisition to date.  This acquisition closed on December 1st and we are already seeing some of the benefits we outlined when the transaction was first announced.  The transformation of the Company to a commercial banking model is underway, as we have started to diversify both our loan portfolio and our funding mix.  Commercial loans, including commercial real estate and specialty finance, currently represent about one-third of our loan portfolio compared to less than 25% before we announced the acquisition, while non-interest-bearing deposits are now 21% of total deposits compared to 9% before the announcement.  Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, our sensitivity to interest rate changes has improved materially to a more balanced position.  Accordingly, we expect that our margin in 2023 will be above where we ended the year.  We look forward to further benefits in all of our metrics throughout this year and next, as we focus on the integration and transformation of the new Flagstar.

"As for our mortgage business, the substantial Fed policy shift last year resulted in significantly higher residential mortgage rates.  This had a negative impact on the business, as all mortgage activity slowed.  While legacy Flagstar was proactive in rightsizing its mortgage business throughout the past year, we expect the mortgage market to remain challenged.  Therefore, we made the strategic decision shortly after the transaction closed to swiftly restructure the business, which occurred in January.  Going forward, our distributed retail channel will operate as an in-branch footprint model and we will close all out of footprint locations, resulting in a 69% reduction in the number of retail home lending offices.  These decisions are among the most difficult decisions our leadership team has to make, however; they are necessary to ensure the long-term success of our mortgage business.  We anticipate that these actions will optimize our mortgage business and improve our profitability during the current down-turn, while still allowing us to participate in the upside in the event the interest rate environment becomes more favorable.

"In terms of our 2022 performance, this was another record year for the Company.  On a non-GAAP basis, we reported full-year diluted EPS of $1.23, and net income available to common stockholders of $603 million, excluding merger-related expenses, bargain purchase gain, and the initial provision for credit losses, compared to $585 million in 2021, which also excludes merger-related expenses.  Last year's net income was a record level and in 2022, we broke that record.  We are very pleased with our 2022 operating performance and see momentum building as we head into 2023.

"None of what has been accomplished so far would have been possible without the extreme dedication and hard work of each of our employees, whose commitment to our customers over the past several years has been nothing short of amazing.  My sincere thanks to all of them."

MORTGAGE RESTRUCTURING

Legacy Flagstar proactively rightsized its mortgage operation throughout 2022 to adjust for market conditions.  The mortgage business is cyclical by nature and challenging conditions are expected to continue throughout 2023.  To better reflect demand and align to where our brand strength and familiarity lies, the distributed retail channel will reduce coverage by 69% and shift to a branch footprint only-model. 

We expect that these actions will optimize our mortgage business and improve profitability during the current mortgage down cycle, while still allowing us to participate in the upside once the interest rate cycle becomes favorable.  This allows us to maintain a retail presence within our nine-state footprint, leverages our marketing and branding spend, and reduces risk.  More importantly, it leaves our position within the mortgage industry intact.  We remain one of the largest bank originators, the 6th largest sub-servicer in the country, and the 2nd largest warehouse lender.  Moreover, it allows us to continue to lend in all six channels and maintain our commitment to the correspondent and broker business.

Allowance for Credit Losses

At December 31, 2022, the allowance for credit losses was $393 million, up $175 million compared to $218 million at September 30, 2022.  The majority of the increase is related to the initial provision for credit losses under CECL of $117 million.  Excluding the CECL-related provision, the provision for credit losses for the fourth-quarter was $7 million, while net charge-offs were $1 million. 

Deposits

Total deposits at December 31, 2022 were $58.7 billion compared to $41.7 billion at the prior quarter end and $35.1 billion as of year-end 2021.  The acquisition of Flagstar added $16.1 billion of deposits.  Non-interest-bearing deposits were $12.1 billion at December 31, 2022 and represented 21% of total deposits, compared to $3.8 billion or 9% of total deposits at September 30, 2022 and $4.5 billion or 13% as of December 31, 2021.  Excluding the impact of the Flagstar acquisition, deposits increased $7.6 billion or 22% during 2022 at legacy New York Community.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, non-interest income totaled $247 million.  Exclusive of the bargain purchase gain, adjusted non-interest income was $88 million, up $27 million or 44%.  The increase was also due to one month of Flagstar in our results.

Non-Interest Expense

For the three months ended December 31, 2022, total non-interest expenses were $269 million, up $133 million or 98% compared to the previous quarter and $134 million or 99% compared to the year-ago quarter.  Excluding the impact of merger-related expenses totaling $60 million and intangible asset amortization of $5 million, total operating expenses were $204 million compared to $132 million in the previous quarter and $128 million in the year-ago quarter.  The increase was also due to one month of Flagstar in our results.  The efficiency ratio for the current fourth quarter was 48.82% compared to 38.57% in the prior quarter and 37.70% in the year-ago quarter.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, total non-interest expenses were $684 million, up $143 million or 26% compared to the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.  Excluding the impact of the two items mentioned above, total operating expenses were $604 million compared to $518 million last year, up $86 million or 17%.  The increase was also due to one month of Flagstar in our results.  The efficiency ratio for full-year 2022 was 40.72% compared to 38.36% for full-year 2021.

Income Taxes

For the three months ended December 31, 2022, income tax expense totaled $12 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 7.02% compared to income tax expense of $53 million and an effective tax rate of 25.66% in the previous quarter and income tax expense of $49 million reflecting an effective tax rate of 24.90% in the year-ago fourth quarter.  The linked-quarter and year-over-year decrease in income tax expense primarily reflects a lower level of pre-tax income compared to previous periods, as well as the deductibility of certain merger-related items.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, total income tax expense was $176 million and the effective tax rate was 21.36% compared to income tax expense of $210 million and an effective tax rate of 26.09% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.  The year-over-year decline is also attributable to the above-mentioned factors.  In addition, the effective tax rate in 2021 was negatively impacted by the non-deductibility of certain merger-related expenses and $2 million of income tax expense related to the revaluation of deferred taxes related to a change in the New York State tax rate.

Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This earnings release and the associated conference call may include forward–looking statements by the Company and our authorized officers pertaining to such matters as our goals, intentions, and expectations regarding revenues, earnings, loan production, asset quality, capital levels, and acquisitions, among other matters; our estimates of future costs and benefits of the actions we may take; our assessments of probable losses on loans; our assessments of interest rate and other market risks; and our ability to achieve our financial and other strategic goals, including those related to our merger with Flagstar Bancorp, Inc., which was completed on December 1, 2022, and our ongoing strategic relationship with Figure Technologies, Inc.

Forward–looking statements are typically identified by such words as "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "outlook," "estimate," "forecast," "project," "should," and other similar words and expressions, and are subject to numerous assumptions, risks, and uncertainties, which change over time. Additionally, forward–looking statements speak only as of the date they are made; the Company does not assume any duty, and does not undertake, to update our forward–looking statements. Furthermore, because forward–looking statements are subject to assumptions and uncertainties, actual results or future events could differ, possibly materially, from those anticipated in our statements, and our future performance could differ materially from our historical results.

Our forward–looking statements are subject to the following principal risks and uncertainties: the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the length of time that the pandemic continues, the potential imposition of future shelter in place orders or additional restrictions on travel in the future, the effect of the pandemic on the general economy and on the businesses of our borrowers and their ability to make payments on their obligations, the remedial actions and stimulus measures adopted by federal, state, and local governments; the inability of employees to work due to illness, quarantine, or government mandates; general economic conditions and trends, either nationally or locally; conditions in the securities markets; changes in interest rates; changes in deposit flows, and in the demand for deposit, loan, and investment products and other financial services; changes in real estate values; changes in the quality or composition of our loan or investment portfolios; changes in competitive pressures among financial institutions or from non–financial institutions; changes in legislation, regulations, and policies; and a variety of other matters which, by their nature, are subject to significant uncertainties and/or are beyond our control.  Our forward-looking statements are also subject to the following principal risks and uncertainties with respect to our merger with Flagstar Bancorp, which was completed on December 1, 2022, our ongoing restructuring of our mortgage business, and our ongoing strategic relationship with Figure Technologies, Inc.; the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against the Company or any other party to the Flagstar or Figure Technologies, Inc. transactions; the possibility that the anticipated benefits of the transactions will not be realized when expected or at all; diversion of management's attention from ongoing business operations and opportunities; the possibility that the Company may be unable to achieve expected synergies and operating efficiencies in or as a result of the transactions within the expected timeframes or at all; revenues following the transactions may be lower than expected, and the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the right of any of the parties to the Figure Technologies, Inc. strategic relationship to terminate the agreements governing such relationship; and there can be no assurance that the Community Benefits Agreement entered into with NCRC, which was contingent upon the closing of the Company's merger with Flagstar Bancorp, Inc., will achieve the results or outcome originally expected or anticipated by us as a result of changes to our business strategy, performance of the U.S. economy, or changes to the laws and regulations affecting us, our customers, communities we serve, and the U.S. economy (including, but not limited to, tax laws and regulations).

More information regarding some of these factors is provided in the Risk Factors section of our Annual Report on Form 10–K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and in other SEC reports we file. Our forward–looking statements may also be subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those we may discuss in this news release, on our conference call, during investor presentations, or in our SEC filings, which are accessible on our website and at the SEC's website, www.sec.gov.

NEW YORK COMMUNITY BANCORP, INC.
RECONCILIATIONS OF CERTAIN GAAP AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(unaudited)

While stockholders' equity, total assets, and book value per share are financial measures that are recorded in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), tangible stockholders' equity, tangible assets, and tangible book value per share are not. Nevertheless, it is management's belief that these non-GAAP measures should be disclosed in our earnings releases and other investor communications for the following reasons:

  1. Tangible stockholders' equity is an important indication of the Company's ability to grow organically and through business combinations, as well as its ability to pay dividends and to engage in various capital management strategies.
  2. Returns on average tangible assets and average tangible stockholders' equity are among the profitability measures considered by current and prospective investors, both independent of, and in comparison with, the Company's peers.
  3. Tangible book value per share and the ratio of tangible stockholders' equity to tangible assets are among the capital measures considered by current and prospective investors, both independent of, and in comparison with, its peers. 

Tangible stockholders' equity, tangible assets, and the related non-GAAP profitability and capital measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for stockholders' equity, total assets, or any other profitability or capital measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate these non-GAAP measures may differ from that of other companies reporting non-GAAP measures with similar names. 

The following table presents reconciliations of our common stockholders' equity and tangible common stockholders' equity, our total assets and tangible assets, and the related GAAP and non-GAAP profitability and capital measures at or for the periods indicated:

(1)

To calculate return on average assets for a period, we divide net income, or non-GAAP net income, generated during that period by average assets recorded during that period. To calculate  return on average tangible assets for a period, we divide net income by average tangible assets recorded during that period.

(2)

To calculate return on average common stockholders' equity for a period, we divide net income available to common stockholders, or non-GAAP net income available to common stockholders, generated during that period by average common stockholders' equity recorded during that period. To calculate return on average tangible common stockholders' equity for a period, we divide net income available to common stockholders generated during that period by average tangible common stockholders' equity recorded during that period.

While diluted earnings per common share, net income, net income available to common stockholders, and total non-interest income are financial measures that are recorded in accordance with GAAP, financial measures that adjust these GAAP measures to exclude expenses and the bargain purchase gain related to our merger with Flagstar, initial provision for credit losses, and the revaluation of deferred taxes related to New York State tax rate changes are not. Nevertheless, it is management's belief that these non-GAAP measures should be disclosed in our earnings release and other investor communications because they are not considered part of recurring operations and are included because the Company believes they may provide useful supplemental information for evaluating the underlying performance trends of the Company.

(1) Certain merger-related items are not taxable or deductible.











While net income is a financial measure that is calculated in accordance with GAAP, PPNR and PPNR excluding merger-related expenses are non-GAAP financial measures. Nevertheless, it is management's belief that these non-GAAP measures should be disclosed in our earnings releases and other investor communications because management believes these measures are relevant to understanding the performance of the Company attributable to elements other than the provision for credit losses and the ability of the Company to generate earnings sufficient to cover estimated credit losses. These measures also provide a meaningful basis for comparison to other financial institutions since it is commonly employed and is a measure frequently cited by investors and analysts. The following table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures of PPNR and PPNR excluding merger-related expenses to the comparable GAAP financial measures of net income for the stated periods:

While our net interest margin, including the contribution of prepayment income is recorded in accordance with GAAP, adjusted net interest margin, which excludes the contribution of prepayment income, is not. Nevertheless, management uses this non-GAAP measure in its analysis of our performance, and believes that this non-GAAP measure should be disclosed in our earnings releases and other investor communications for the following reasons:

  1. Adjusted net interest margin gives investors a better understanding of the effect of prepayment income and other items on our net interest margin. Prepayment income in any given period depends on the volume of loans that refinance or prepay, or securities that prepay, during that period. Such activity is largely dependent on external factors such as current market conditions, including real estate values, and the perceived or actual direction of market interest rates.
  2. Adjusted net interest margin is among the measures considered by current and prospective investors, both independent of, and in comparison to, our peers.
