Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Results
20.2% Increase in Revenues and 18.3% Increase in Net Income

LONG ISLAND, N.Y. July 27, 2017 / GLOBE Newswire --

Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (NASDAQ: LOAN) announced today that its total revenue for the three month period ended June 30, 2017 was approximately $1,401,000 compared to approximately $1,166,000 for the three month period ended June 30, 2016, an increase of $235,000, or 20.2%. For the three month period ended June 30, 2017, approximately $1,189,000 of the Company's revenue represents interest income on the secured, commercial loans that the Company offers to small businesses compared to approximately $974,000 for the same period in 2016, and approximately $212,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to approximately $192,000 for the same period in 2016. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations.

Net income for the three month period ended June 30, 2017 was approximately $840,000, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 8.1 million weighted-average outstanding common shares), as compared to approximately $710,000, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 7.3 million weighted-average outstanding common shares) for the three month period ended June 30, 2016. This increase is primarily attributable to the increase in revenue, offset by an increase in operating expenses.

Total revenue for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 was approximately $2,731,000 compared to approximately $2,270,000 for the six month period ended June 30, 2016, an increase of $461,000, or 20.3%. For the six month period ended June 30, 2017, approximately $2,295,000 of the Company's revenue represents interest income on the secured, commercial loans that the Company offers to small businesses compared to approximately $1,888,000 for the same period in 2016, and approximately $436,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to approximately $382,000 for the same period in 2016. The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations.

Net income for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 was approximately $1,631,000, or $0.20 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 8.1 million weighted-average outstanding common shares), as compared to approximately $1,405,000, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share (based on approximately 7.3 million weighted-average outstanding common shares) for the six month period ended June 30, 2016. This increase is primarily attributable to the increase in revenue, offset by an increase in operating expenses.
           
As of June 30, 2017, total shareholders' equity was approximately $22,966,000 compared to approximately $22,314,000 as of December 31, 2016, an increase of $652,000.

Effective July 7, 2017, the Company amended certain terms of the existing credit line agreement with Webster Business Credit Corporation, whereby Webster increased the Company’s existing credit line from $14 million to $15 million, with an option, at the discretion of Webster, to further increase the credit line to $20 million. In addition, the credit line interest rate was reduced by 0.5%, and the term of the credit line was extended until February 28, 2022.

Assaf Ran, Chairman of the Board and CEO stated, “I’m pleased to present another good quarter and new record revenue and net earnings. Our goal is to continue with our responsible lending approach in order to continue to maintain a default free loan portfolio and track record. We’ve recently announced that our line of credit from our bank was increased, which we believe will allow us to keep growing the company in the future.”

Statements that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as “plan,” “project,” “potential,” “seek,” “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “estimate,” or “continue” are intended to identify forward-looking statements. For example, when we state that we will continue to maintain a default free loan portfolio and track record and that we believe the increase in the Webster credit line will allow us to continue growing in the future we are using forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned that certain important factors may affect the Company’s actual results and could cause such results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements that may be made in this news release. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those projected, expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including but not limited to the following: (i) we have limited operating history as a Real Estate Investment Trust (“REIT”); (ii) our loan origination activities, revenues and profits are limited by available funds; (iii) we operate in a highly competitive market and competition may limit our ability to originate loans with favorable interest rates; (iv) our chief executive officer is critical to our business and our future success may depend on our ability to retain him; (v) if we overestimate the yields on our loans or incorrectly value the collateral securing the loan, we may experience losses; (vi) we may be subject to “lender liability” claims; (vii) our loan portfolio is illiquid; (viii) our due diligence may not uncover all of a borrower’s liabilities or other risks to its business; (ix) borrower concentration could lead to significant losses; (x) our management has limited experience managing a REIT; and (xi) we may choose to make distributions in our own stock, in which case you may be required to pay income taxes in excess of the cash dividends you receive. The risk factors contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission identify important factors that could cause such differences. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release, and we caution potential investors not to place undue reliance on such statements.
