SALT LAKE CITY, July 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medallion Bank (Nasdaq: MBNKP, “the Bank”), an FDIC-insured bank providing consumer loans for the purchase of recreational vehicles, boats, and home improvements, along with loan origination services to fintech partners, announced today its 2021 second quarter results. The Bank is a wholly owned subsidiary of Medallion Financial Corp. (Nasdaq: MFIN).

2021 Second Quarter Highlights

  • Record quarterly net income of $17.5 million compared to net income of $1.8 million in the prior year period.

  • Quarterly net interest income of $33.1 million, compared to $28.1 million in the prior year period.

  • Quarterly benefit for loan losses was $0.4 million, driven by lower consumer borrower defaults and recoveries from previous period loan losses, compared to a quarterly provision of $16.4 million in the prior year period.

  • Net charge-offs were 3.93% of average loans outstanding, compared to 1.38% in the prior year period.

  • Recreation and home improvement loans in a state of delinquency were 1.6% of the total combined recreation and home improvement loan portfolios.

Donald Poulton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Medallion Bank, stated, “The performance of our consumer lending businesses continues to be reflected in our bottom-line results. For three consecutive quarters, we have delivered a return on assets above 3%, and a return on equity over 20%, levels that demonstrate our impressive margins and strength of our earnings stream. Earnings for the quarter were a record $17.5 million and follow two quarters of more than $13 million in net income. We expect our strong capital position will continue to allow us to grow the loan portfolios in our two key segments while we adhere to our high credit quality standards, both of which are key components of the Bank’s strategy.”
