Boenning & Scattergood analyst Erik Zwick downgraded Bridge Bancorp (BDGE) to Neutral from Outperform and removing his previous $25 price target on the shares. The pro-forma company's balance sheet and business model will "no longer be as unique" as it once was after Bridge completes its pending merger with Dime Community Bank (DCOM) in Q1 of 2021, argues Zwick, who sees the stock trading in line with peers in the near-term.

Reflecting on the third quarter results, Kevin O'Connor, President and CEO said, "Our strong quarterly results reflect the solid foundations of our balance sheet and business model. We continue to navigate this turbulent environment, supporting our employees who, in turn, support our customers. Additionally, we are working with our counterparts at Dime Community Bank to deliver a smooth transition for our customers. I want to thank all of the BNB employees-their ability to service our customers at the highest level while dealing with the pandemic, remote work, child-care issues, and a complicated integration, speaks volumes about their dedication and commitment. I could not be prouder to work with this group of professionals."

Reports Q2 revenue $42.68M, consensus $39.86M. Reports Q2 tangible book value per share $19.93. Reports Q2 CET1 capital ratio 10.2%. Reflecting on the second quarter results, Kevin O'Connor, president and CEO said, "The second quarter of 2020 was an unprecedented time for our country, our industry, our customers and our employees. I am proud that our employees rallied to support our customers on several fronts. 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."
