FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

We may, from time to time, make written or oral “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), our reports to shareholders and in other communications by us. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” which may be identified by the use of such words as “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “should,” “may,” “will,” “intend,” “planned,” “estimated,” “potential” or similar expressions.  Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, estimates with respect to our financial condition, results of operation and business that are subject to various factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from these estimates.  These factors include, but are not limited to:
changes in the interest rate environment that reduce margins;
changes in the regulatory environment;
the highly competitive industry and market area in which we operate;
general economic conditions, either nationally or regionally, resulting in, among other things, a deterioration in credit quality;
changes in business conditions and inflation;
changes in credit market conditions;
changes in the securities markets which affect investment management revenues;
increases in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) deposit insurance premiums and assessments, which could adversely affect our financial condition;
changes in technology used in the banking business;
the soundness of other financial services institutions, which may adversely affect our credit risk;
our controls and procedures may fail or be circumvented;
new lines of business or new products and services, which may subject us to additional risks;
changes in key management personnel which may adversely impact our operations;
the effect on our operations of recent legislative and regulatory initiatives that were or may be enacted in response to the recent financial crisis;
severe weather, natural disasters, acts of war or terrorism and other external events which could significantly impact our business;
the inability to realize expected cost savings or to implement integration plans and other adverse consequences associated with the acquisition of Community Bank of Bergen County (“Community”);
the inability to realize expected cost savings or to implement integration plans and other adverse consequences associated with the acquisition of Enterprise Bank, NJ (“Enterprise”); and
other factors detailed from time to time in our filings with the SEC.

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, actual results may differ materially from the results discussed in these forward-looking statements.  You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof.  We do not undertake any obligation to republish revised forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

New Accounting Standards

In February 2016, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). Under the new guidance, lessees are required to recognize the following for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date: (i) a lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis; and (ii) a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. Under the new guidance, lessor accounting is largely unchanged. Public business entities should apply the amendments in ASU 2016-02 for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted for all public business entities upon issuance. Lessees (for capital and operating leases) and lessors (for sales-type, direct financing, and operating leases) must apply a modified retrospective transition approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases which was issued to clarify and correct untended application of the guidance in ASU 2016-02 (Topic 842). The amendments in this ASU affect aspects of the guidance issued in ASU 2016-02 and provide clarification to related topics, such as 1) Rate implicit in the lease; 2) Reassessment of leases; 3) Transition guidance; and 4) Impairment of net investment in the lease. In July 2018, the FASB also issued ASU 2018-11 Leases (Topic 842) Targeted Improvements, which provides guidance related to comparative reporting requirements for initial adoption and separating lease and non-lease components. Currently, entities are required to adopt the new standard utilizing the modified retrospective approach. This amendment provides entities with an additional transition method which allows entities to initially apply the new leases standard at the adoption date and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. Currently, ASU 2016-02 provides a practical expedient to lessees to allow them to not separate non-lease components from lease components; however, it does not provide a similar practical expedient to lessors. This amendment provides a practical expedient to lessors which allows them the option to not separate non-lease components from the associated lease components. However, the lessor practical expedient is limited to circumstances in which the non-lease components would otherwise be account for under the new revenue guidance (Topic 606). In addition, both of the following conditions must be met: 1) the timing and pattern of transfer are the same for non-lease components and associated lease components 2) the lease component, if accounted for separately, would be classified as an operating lease. An entity that elects the lessor practical expedient is also required to provide certain disclosures. For entities that early adopted Topic 842 the amendments in these ASUs are effective upon issuance. The Company adopted both ASU No. 2016-02 and ASU No. 2018-11 effective January 1, 2019 and elected to apply the guidance as of the beginning of the period of adoption (January 1, 2019) and not restate comparative periods. The

6



Company also elected certain optional practical expedients, which allow the Company to forego a reassessment of (1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (2) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (3) the initial direct costs for any existing leases.   Additionally, the Company elected to adopt the practical expedient use of hindsight to determine right of use asset and lease liability for each lease with a renewal option through their first option date. Adoption of the standard did not result in material changes to the Company's consolidated results of operations. The Company's adoption of the ASU resulted in a right of use asset and lease liability of approximately $2.7 million at January 1, 2019. The impact of the adoption on the Company's operating results was not significant.

In March 2019, FASB issued ASU 2019-01, Leases (Topic 842): Codification Improvements, which amends certain aspects of FASB's leasing standard, ASU 2016-02.1 ASU 2019-01 is the result of a proposed ASU issued in December 2018. The ASU addresses the following issues:
Determining the fair value of the underlying asset by lessors that are not manufacturers or dealers.
Statement of cash flows presentation for sales-type and direct financing leases by lessors within the scope of ASC 942.3
Clarification of interim disclosure requirements during transition.
ASU 2019-01 will be effective for public business entities for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pending adoption on its consolidated financial statements.
In June, 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), which introduces new guidance for the accounting for credit losses on instruments within its scope. The new guidance introduces an approach based on expected losses to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments. It also modifies the impairment model for available-for-sale (AFS) debt securities and provides for a simplified accounting model for purchased financial assets with credit deterioration since their origination. In April, 2019, FASB issued ASU 2019-04, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses. ASU 2019-04 made amendments to the following categories in ASU 2016-13 which include Accrued interest, transfers between classifications or categories for loans and debt securities, recoveries, reinsurance recoverables, projections of interest rate environments for variable-rate financial instruments, costs to sell when foreclosure is probable, consideration of expected prepayments when determining the effective interest rate, vintage disclosures and extension and renewal options. In May, 2019, FASB issued ASU 2019-05, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326); Targeted Transition Relief, ASU 2019-05 allows the Company to irrevocably elect, upon adoption of ASU 2016-13, the fair value option on financial instruments that (1) were previously recorded at amortized cost and (2) are within the scope of Topic 326 if the instruments are eligible for the fair value option under authoritative guidance for fair value. The fair value option election does not apply to held-to-maturity debt securities. We are required to make this election on an instrument-by-instrument basis. This ASU will be effective for public business entities that are SEC filers and considered smaller reporting companies in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. All other entities will have one additional year. Early application of the guidance will be permitted for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company elected not to adopt ASU 2016-13 early. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pending adoption of the new standard on its consolidated financial statements. The Company has determined that a third-party vendor will assist with model development, data governance and operational controls to support the adoption of this ASU.  Model implementation, including development and validation, began in the second quarter of 2019, as did the establishment of the control activities required to support the models.

In January 2017, FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment (Topic 350). The main objective of this ASU is to simplify the accounting for goodwill impairment by requiring impairment charges be based upon the first step in the current two-step impairment test under Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 350. Currently, if the fair value of a reporting unit is lower than its carrying amount (Step 1), an entity calculates any impairment charge by comparing the implied fair value of goodwill with its carrying amount (Step 2). This ASU’s objective is to simplify how all entities assess goodwill for impairment by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. As amended, the goodwill impairment test will consist of one step comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. An entity should recognize a goodwill impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. The standard will be applied prospectively and is effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed in periods beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted for annual and interim goodwill impairment testing dates after January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pending adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

In March 2017, FASB issued ASU 2017-08, Premium Amortization on Purchased Callable Debt Securities (Subtopic 310-20). The update shortens the amortization period for premiums on purchased callable debt securities to the earliest call date. The amendment will apply only to callable debt securities with explicit, noncontingent call features that are callable at fixed prices and on preset dates, apply to all premiums on callable debt securities, regardless of how they were generated, and require companies to reset the effective yield using the payment terms of the debt security if the call option is not exercised on the earliest call date. The ASU does not require an accounting change for securities held at a discount. The discount continues to be amortized to maturity and does not apply when the investor has already incorporated prepayments into the calculation of its effective yield under other

7



GAAP. The amendments in the ASU are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those years. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. If an entity early adopts the amendments in an interim period, any adjustments should be reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. The Company's adoption of the ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In August 2017, FASB issued ASU 2017-12 Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815). The objective of the ASU is to improve the financial reporting of hedging relationships to better portray the economic results of an entity’s risk management activities in its financial statements and to make improvements to simplify the application of hedge accounting guidance in current GAAP. The amendments in the ASU will, among other things, 1) permit hedge accounting for risk components in hedging relationships involving nonfinancial risk and interest rate risks; 2) change the guidance for designating fair value hedges of interest rate risk and for measuring the change in fair value of the hedged item in fair value hedges of interest rate risk; 3) modify disclosures to include a tabular disclosure related to the effect on the income statement of fair value and cash flow hedges; and 4) eliminate the requirement to disclose the ineffective portion of the change in fair value of hedging instruments. These changes will more closely align the results of cash flow and fair value hedge accounting with risk management activities and the presentation of hedge results in the financial statements. ASU 2017-12 is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the ASU will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early application is permitted in any interim period after issuance of the update with all transition requirements and elections being applied to hedging relationships existing on the date of adoption. The Company's adoption of the ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In June 2018, FASB issued ASU 2018-07 Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718). The main objective of this ASU is to simplify the accounting for share-based payment transactions in current GAAP by expanding the scope to include nonemployee share-based payment transactions. This ASU will apply to all share-based payment transactions in which a grantor acquires goods or services to be used in their own operations by issuing share-based payments. This ASU does not apply to share-based payments used to provide financing to the issuer or awards issued in conjunction with selling goods or services to customers as part of a contract accounted for under Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The amendments in the ASU will require an entity to, among other things, 1) measure nonemployee share-based payment awards at the fair value of the equity instruments that an entity is obligated to issue when the good has been delivered or the service has been rendered; 2) measure equity classified nonemployee share-based payment awards at the grant date; and 3) take into consideration the probability of satisfying performance conditions when accounting for nonemployee share-based payment awards with such conditions. ASU 2018-07 is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that fiscal year. Early adoption is permitted; however, an entity’s adoption date shall not be earlier than the entity’s adoption date of Topic 606. Per review of the ASU, the Company determined that it does not pertain to its current operations; therefore, no evaluation regarding adoption is required.

In August 2018, FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. The updates in this ASU are part of the disclosure framework project and modify the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements in Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement. The modifications include removal and modification of disclosure requirements. The ASU removed the following disclosure requirements: a) the amount of and reasons for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, b) the policy for timing of transfers between levels, c) the valuation process for Level 3 fair value measurements, and d) for nonpublic entities, the changes in unrealized gains and losses for the period included in earnings for recurring Level 3 fair value measurements held at the end of the reporting period. The ASU added the following disclosure requirements: a) the changes in unrealized gains and losses for the period included in other comprehensive income for recurring Level 3 fair value measurements held at the end of the reporting period; and b) the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements. For certain unobservable inputs, an entity may disclose other quantitative information (such as the median or arithmetic average) in lieu of the weighted average if the entity determines that other quantitative information would be a more reasonable and rational method to reflect the distribution of unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements. The ASU also modified the following disclosure requirements: a) in lieu of a rollforward for Level 3 fair value measurements, a nonpublic entity is required to disclose transfers into and out of Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy and purchases and issues of Level 3 assets and liabilities; b) for investments in certain entities that calculate net asset value, an entity is required to disclose the timing of liquidation of an investee's assets and the date when restrictions from redemption might lapse only if the investee has communicated the timing to the entity or announced the timing publicly; and c) clarification that the measurement uncertainty disclosure is to communicate information about the uncertainty in measurement as of the reporting date. ASU 2018-13 will be effective for public business entities for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pending adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, FASB issued ASU 2018-14, Compensation-Retirement Benefits-Defined Benefit Plans - General (Topic 715-20): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans, which modifies the disclosure requirements for employers that sponsor defined benefit pension or other postretirement plans. The updates in this ASU are part of the disclosure framework project ASU 2018-14 and modify the disclosure requirements under ASC 715-201 for employers that sponsor defined benefit pension or other postretirement plans. Those modifications include the removal, addition, and of disclosure requirements as well as clarifying specific disclosure requirements. The ASU removed the following disclosures: a) the amounts in accumulated other comprehensive income expected to be recognized as components of net periodic benefit cost over the next fiscal year; b) the amount and timing of plan assets expected to be returned to the employer; c) the disclosures related to the June 2001 amendments to the Japanese Welfare Pension Insurance Law; d) related party disclosures about the amount of future annual benefits covered by insurance and annuity contracts and significant transactions between the employer or related parties and the plan; e) for nonpublic entities, the reconciliation of the opening balances to the closing balances of plan assets measured on a recurring basis in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy; however, nonpublic entities will be required to disclose separately the amounts of transfers into and out of Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy and purchases of Level 3 plan assets and f) for public entities, the effects of a one-percentage-point change in assumed health care cost trend rates on the (i) aggregate of the service and interest cost components of net periodic benefit costs and (ii) benefit obligation for postretirement health care benefits. The ASU added the following disclosures: x) the weighted-average interest crediting rates for cash balance plans and other plans with promised interest crediting rates and y) an explanation of the reasons for significant gains and losses related to changes in the benefit obligation for the period. The ASU then clarified the following disclosures: 1) the projected benefit obligation (PBO) and fair value of plan assets for plans with PBOs more than plan assets; and 2) the accumulated benefit obligation (ABO) and fair value of plan assets for plans with ABOs more than plan assets. ASU 2018-14 will be effective for public business entities for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pending adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

In October 2018, FASB issued ASU 2018-16, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815)-Inclusion of the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) Overnight Index Swap (OIS) Rate as a Benchmark Interest Rate for Hedge Accounting Purposes. The ASU permits the use of the Overnight Index Swap (OIS) Rate based on the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) as a U.S. benchmark interest rate for hedge accounting purposes. ASU 2018-16 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. Early adoption is permitted in any interim period upon issuance of this ASU if an entity already has adopted ASU 2017-12. The amendments in this update should be applied prospectively for qualifying new or redesignated hedging relationships entered into on or after the date of adoption. The Company's adoption of the ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 2 – ACQUISITIONS

On January 4, 2018, the Company announced the successful closing of the merger with Community Bank of Bergen County, NJ, a New Jersey-chartered bank (“Community”) in an all-stock transaction (the “Community Merger”). The Community Merger enhanced and expanded SB One Bank’s presence in Bergen County, New Jersey with the addition of 3 full service branch locations in that county, which complements SB One Bank’s existing location in Oradell, New Jersey. Under the terms of the agreement, Community merged with and into SB One Bank, with SB One Bank being the surviving entity and each outstanding share of Community common stock was exchanged for 0.97 shares of the Company's common stock. The Company issued 1,873,028 shares of its common stock, having an aggregate fair value of $51.9 million in the Community Merger and paid approximately $2 thousand in cash for fractional shares. Outstanding Community stock options were paid out in cash by the Company for a total payment of $140 thousand. Expenses related to the Community Merger totaled $4.0 million and $1.2 million for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

On December 21, 2018, the Company announced the successful completion of the merger with Enterprise Bank N.J. (“Enterprise”) in an all-stock transaction (the “Enterprise Merger”). The Enterprise Merger is expected to enhance and expand the Company's presence in Union, Middlesex and Essex Counties, New Jersey with the addition of 4 full service branch locations in those counties. Pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement, Enterprise merged with and into SB One Bank and each outstanding share of Enterprise common stock was exchanged for 0.4538 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company issued 1,573,454 shares of its common stock, having an aggregate fair value of $32.4 million and paid approximately $1 thousand in cash for fractional shares. Outstanding Enterprise stock options were paid out in cash by the Company for a total payment of $1.6 million. Expenses related to the Enterprise Merger totaled $1.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Community

The Community acquisition was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. Accordingly, the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the acquisition were recorded at their estimated fair values based on management's best estimate using

The fair values of deposit liabilities with no stated maturities such as checking, money market and savings accounts, were assumed to equal the carrying amounts since these deposits are payable on demand. The fair values of certificates of deposits and IRAs represent the present value of contractual cash flows discounted at market rates for similar certificates of deposit.
The Company has finalized the accounting as a result of the merger with Community.
Fair values of the major categories of assets acquired and liabilities assumed were determined as follows:
Investment securities available-for-sale
The estimated fair values of the investment securities available for sale, primarily comprised of U.S. government agency mortgage-backed securities, U.S. government agencies and municipal bonds, were determined using open market pricing provided by multiple independent securities brokers. Management reviewed the open market quotes used in pricing the securities. A fair value discount of $261 thousand was recorded on the investments.
Loans
Loans acquired in the Community acquisition were recorded at fair value, and there was no carryover related allowance for loan and lease losses. The fair values of loans acquired from Community were estimated using cash flow projections based on the remaining maturity and repricing terms. Cash flows were adjusted for estimated future credit losses and the rate of prepayments. Projected cash flows were then discounted to present value using a risk-adjusted market rate for similar loans. The fair value of the acquired loans receivable had a gross amortized cost basis of $242.5 million. The table below illustrates the fair value adjustments made to the amortized cost basis in order to present a fair value of the loans acquired. The credit adjustment on purchased credit impaired loans is derived in accordance with ASC 310-30 and represents the portion of the loan balances that has been deemed uncollectible based on the Company’s expectations of future cash flows for each respective loan on a level yield amortization over 3.5 years.

For loans acquired without evidence of credit quality deterioration, the Company prepared the interest rate loan fair value and credit fair value adjustments. Loans were grouped into general pools by characteristics such as loan type, term, collateral and rate. Market rates for similar loans were obtained from various internal and external data sources and reviewed by management for reasonableness. The average of these rates was used as the fair value interest rate a market participant would utilize. A present value approach was utilized to calculate the interest rate fair value premium of $324 thousand.
Additionally for loans acquired without credit deterioration, a credit fair value adjustment was calculated using a two-part credit fair value analysis: 1) expected lifetime credit migration losses; and 2) estimated fair value adjustment for certain qualitative factors. The expected lifetime losses were calculated using historical losses observed at the Bank, Community and peer banks. The Company also estimated an environmental factor to apply to each loan type. The environmental factor represents potential discount which may arise due to general credit and economic factors. A credit fair value discount of $4.1 million was determined. Both the interest rate and credit fair value adjustments relate to performing loans and loans acquired with evidence of credit quality deterioration will be substantially recognized as interest income on a level yield amortization method over the weighted average life of the loans of 4 years.
The following is a summary of the loans accounted for in accordance with ASC 310-30 that were acquired in the Community acquisition as of the closing date.

Bank Premises
The Company acquired three branches of Community, all of which were owned by Community, at a premium of $3.5 million. The fair value of Community’s premises was determined based upon independent third-party appraisals performed by licensed appraisers in the market in which the premises are located which will be amortized on a straight line basis over 40 years.
Core Deposit Intangible
The fair value of the core deposit intangible was determined based on a discounted cash flow analysis using a discount rate commensurate with market participants. To calculate cash flows, deposit account servicing costs (net of deposit fee income) and interest expense on deposits were compared to the cost of alternative funding sources available through national brokered CD offering rates. The projected cash flows were developed using projected deposit attrition rates. The core deposit intangible will be amortized over ten years using the sum-of-years digits method.
The core deposit intangible totaled $1.3 million and is being amortized over its estimated useful life of approximately 10 years using an accelerated method of the sum of the years' digits. The goodwill will be evaluated annually for impairment. The goodwill is not deductible for tax purposes. The goodwill recognized from the merger with Community was created based on the consideration paid by the Company for enhancing its presence in the Bergen County, NJ area in addition to our expected synergies from the combined operations of the Company and Community.
Time Deposits
The fair value adjustment for time deposits represents a discount from the value of the contractual repayments of fixed-maturity deposits using prevailing market interest rates for similar-term time deposits. The time deposit discount of approximately $965 thousand is being amortized into income on a level yield amortization method over the contractual life of the deposits of 22.5 months and a weighted average life of 16.5 months.
Bank Owned Life Insurance
Community's bank-owned life insurance book value was $8.0 million with no fair value adjustment.

11



Borrowings
The Company acquired borrowings at Community's carrying value of $12.0 million with no fair value adjustment. The remaining maturity of Community's borrowings was less than thirty days at a weighted average cost of funds equivalent to the current market rate for the similar term borrowing type.
The following table presents certain pro forma information as if Community had been acquired on January 1, 2018. These results combine the historical results of the Company in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Income and, while certain adjustments were made for the estimated impact of certain fair value adjustments and other acquisition-related activity, they are not indicative of what would have occurred had the acquisition taken place on January 1, 2018. In particular, no adjustments have been made to eliminate the amount of Community’s provision for loan losses that would not have been necessary had the acquired loans been recorded at fair value as of January 1, 2018. The Company expects to achieve further operating cost savings and other business synergies as a result of the acquisition which are not reflected in the pro forma amounts below:

The cumulative effect to the Company's net income and net income per share are reported on a consolidated basis for the period ended December 31, 2018.
Enterprise

The Enterprise acquisition was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. Accordingly, the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the acquisition were recorded at their estimated fair values based on management's best estimate using information available at the date of the acquisition, including the use of a third party valuation specialist.

The fair values of deposit liabilities with no stated maturities such as checking, money market and savings accounts, were assumed to equal the carrying amounts since these deposits are payable on demand. The fair values of certificates of deposits and IRAs represent the present value of contractual cash flows discounted at market rates for similar certificates of deposit.
Fair values of the major categories of assets acquired and liabilities assumed were determined as follows:
Investment securities available-for-sale
The estimated fair values of the investment securities available for sale, primarily comprised of U.S. government agency mortgage-backed securities, U.S. government agencies and municipal bonds, were determined using open market pricing provided by multiple independent securities brokers. Management reviewed the open market quotes used in pricing the securities. A fair value discount of $100 thousand was recorded on the investments.
Loans
Loans acquired in the Enterprise acquisition were recorded at fair value, and there was no carryover related allowance for loan and lease losses. The fair values of loans acquired from Enterprise were estimated using cash flow projections based on the remaining maturity and repricing terms. Cash flows were adjusted for estimated future credit losses and the rate of prepayments. Projected cash flows were then discounted to present value using a risk-adjusted market rate for similar loans. The fair value of the acquired loans receivable had a gross amortized cost basis of $262.1 million. The table below illustrates the fair value adjustments made to the amortized cost basis in order to present a fair value of the loans acquired. There was no credit adjustment for purchased credit impaired loans in the Enterprise acquisition.

For loans acquired without evidence of credit quality deterioration, the Company prepared the interest rate loan fair value and credit fair value adjustments. Loans were grouped into general pools by characteristics such as loan type, term, collateral and rate. Market rates for similar loans were obtained from various internal and external data sources and reviewed by management for reasonableness. The average of these rates was used as the fair value interest rate a market participant would utilize. A present value approach was utilized to calculate the interest rate fair value discount of $1.1 million.
Additionally for loans acquired without credit deterioration, a credit fair value adjustment was calculated using a two-part credit fair value analysis: 1) expected lifetime credit migration losses; and 2) estimated fair value adjustment for certain qualitative factors. The expected lifetime losses were calculated using historical losses observed at the Bank, Enterprise and peer banks. The Company also estimated an environmental factor to apply to each loan type. The environmental factor represents potential discount which may arise due to general credit and economic factors. A credit fair value discount of $3.9 million was determined. Both the interest rate and credit fair value adjustments will be substantially recognized as interest income on a level yield amortization method over the expected life of the loans.
Bank Premises
The Company acquired four branches of Enterprise, all of which were leased by Enterprise, at a discount of $282 thousand. The fair value of Enterprise’s premises was determined based upon independent third-party appraisals performed by licensed appraisers in the market in which the premises are located which will be amortized on a straight line basis over 3 years.
Core Deposit Intangible
The fair value of the core deposit intangible was determined based on a discounted cash flow analysis using a discount rate commensurate with market participants. To calculate cash flows, deposit account servicing costs (net of deposit fee income) and interest expense on deposits were compared to the cost of alternative funding sources available through national brokered CD offering rates. The projected cash flows were developed using projected deposit attrition rates. The core deposit intangible will be amortized over ten years using the sum-of-years digits method.
The core deposit intangible totaled $1.0 million and is being amortized over its estimated useful life of approximately 10 years using an accelerated method of the sum of the years' digits. The goodwill will be evaluated annually for impairment. The goodwill is not deductible for tax purposes. The goodwill recognized from the merger with Enterprise was created based on the consideration

paid by the Company for enhancing its presence in the Bergen County, NJ area in addition to our expected synergies from the combined operations of the Company and Enterprise.
Time Deposits
The fair value adjustment for time deposits represents a discount from the value of the contractual repayments of fixed-maturity deposits using prevailing market interest rates for similar-term time deposits. The time deposit discount of approximately $1.0 million is being amortized into income on a level yield amortization method over the contractual life of the deposits of 11.4 months and a weighted average life of 11.4 months.
Borrowings
The Company acquired borrowings at Enterprise's carrying value of $47.3 million at a weighted average rate of 2.23% with a fair value adjustment of $149 thousand. The fair value of borrowings represents the present value of the borrowings expected contracted payments discounted by market rates for similar borrowings. Market rates were obtained from the Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) of New York as of December 21, 2018.
The following table presents certain pro forma information as if Enterprise had been acquired on January 1, 2018. These results combine the historical results of the Company in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Income and, while certain adjustments were made for the estimated impact of certain fair value adjustments on January 1, 2018. In particular, no adjustments have been made to eliminate the amount of Enterprise’s provision for loan losses that would not have been necessary had the acquired loans been recorded at fair value as of January 1, 2018. The Company expects to achieve further operating cost savings and other business synergies as a result of the acquisition which are not reflected in the pro forma amounts below:

The merger transaction was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting and, accordingly, assets acquired, liabilities assumed, and consideration exchanged were recorded at estimated fair values on the acquisition date. Fair values are preliminary and subject to refinement for up to one year after the closing date of the acquisition. Management has not finalized the accounting in connection with the merger and is still in the process of assessing the fair value of loans, other assets and other liabilities which can result in an adjustment to the Company's goodwill and deferred tax asset.

Following the closing of the Enterprise Merger on December 21, 2018, the Company reported the results of the combined Company. The Company cannot disaggregate the additional revenue and income before extraordinary items provided by Enterprise since the Company operates as one consolidated entity on its internal systems. The cumulative effect to the Company's net income and net income per share are reported on a consolidated basis for the period ended December 31, 2018.

For each security whose fair value is less than its amortized cost basis, a review is conducted to determine if an other-than-temporary impairment has occurred. As of September 30, 2019, we reviewed our available for sale securities portfolio for indications of impairment. This review included analyzing the length of time and the extent to which the fair value was lower than the cost, the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, including any specific events which may influence the operations of the issuer and the intent and likelihood of selling the security.  The intent and likelihood of sale of debt and equity securities are evaluated based upon our investment strategy for the particular type of security and our cash flow needs, liquidity position, capital adequacy and interest rate risk position. 
 
U.S. Government Agencies 
At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the declines in fair value and the unrealized losses for our U.S. government agencies securities were primarily due to changes in spreads and market conditions and not credit quality.  At September 30, 2019, there were sixteen securities with a fair value of $17.2 million that had an unrealized loss that amounted to $299 thousand.  As of September 30, 2019, we did not intend to sell and it was not more-likely-than-not that we would be required to sell any of these securities before recovery of their amortized cost basis.  Therefore, none of the U.S. government agencies securities at September 30, 2019 were deemed to be other-than-temporarily impaired (“OTTI”).

At December 31, 2018, there were eighteen securities with a fair value of $21.6 million that had an unrealized loss that amounted to $371 thousand.

U.S. Government Sponsored Enterprises
At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the change in fair value and unrealized losses for our U.S. government sponsored enterprises securities were primarily due to changes in spreads and market conditions and not credit quality.  At September 30, 2019, there were eighteen securities with a fair value of $43.2 million that had an unrealized loss that amounted to $455 thousand.  As of June 30, 2019, we did not intend to sell and it was not more-likely-than-not that we would be required to sell any of these securities before recovery of their amortized cost basis.  Therefore, none of the U.S. government sponsored enterprise securities at September 30, 2019, were deemed to be OTTI.

At December 31, 2018, there were six securities with a fair value of $10.3 million that had an unrealized loss that amounted to $80 thousand.

State and Political Subdivisions
At September 30, 2019, there were no state and political subdivisions securities that had an unrealized loss.
 
At December 31, 2018, there were thirty-four securities with a fair value of $35.9 million that had an unrealized loss that amounted to $540 thousand

Mortgage-Backed Securities - U.S. government-sponsored enterprises
At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the change in fair value and unrealized losses for our mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by U.S. government-sponsored enterprises were primarily due to changes in spreads and market conditions and not credit quality.  At September 30, 2019, there were nine securities with a fair value of $11.3 million that had an unrealized loss that amounted to $88 thousand.  As of September 30, 2019, we did not intend to sell and it was not more-likely-than-not that we would be required to sell any of these securities before recovery of their amortized cost basis.  Therefore, none of our mortgage-backed securities at September 30, 2019 were deemed to be OTTI.  

At December 31, 2018, there were thirty-eight securities with a fair value of $59.3 million that had an unrealized loss that amounted to $1.2 million

Corporate Debt
At September 30, 2019, there was one security with a fair value of $2.1 million that had an unrealized loss of $16 thousand. These securities typically have maturity dates greater than 5 years and the fair values are more sensitive to changes in market interest rates. As of September 30, 2019, we did not intend to sell and it was not more-likely-than-not that we would be required to sell any of these securities before recovery of their amortized cost basis. Therefore, none of our corporate debt securities at September 30, 2019, were deemed to be OTTI.

At December 31, 2018, there were no securities with an unrealized loss.

Temporarily Impaired Securities

For each security whose fair value is less than its amortized cost basis, a review is conducted to determine if an other-than-temporary impairment has occurred. As of September 30, 2019, there were no securities that had an unrealized loss. This review includes analyzing the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been lower than the cost, the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, including any specific events which may influence the operations of the issuer and the intent and likelihood of selling the security.  The intent and likelihood of sale of debt securities is evaluated based upon our investment strategy for the particular type of security and our cash flow needs, liquidity position, capital adequacy and interest rate risk position. For each security whose fair value is less than their amortized cost basis, a review is conducted to determine if an other-than-temporary impairment has occurred.

At December 31, 2018, there were no held to maturity securities with an unrealized loss.

Purchased Credit Impaired Loans

The carrying value of loans acquired in the Community acquisition and accounted for in accordance with ASC Subtopic 310-30, “Loans and Debt Securities Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality,” was $3.0 million at September 30, 2019, which was $600 thousand less than the balance at the time of acquisition on January 4, 2018. Under ASC Subtopic 310-30, these loans, referred to as purchased credit impaired (“PCI”) loans, may be aggregated and accounted for as pools of loans if the loans being aggregated have common risk characteristics. The Company elected to account for the loans with evidence of credit deterioration individually rather than aggregate them into pools. The difference between the undiscounted cash flows expected at acquisition and the investment in the acquired loans, or the “accretable yield,” is recognized as interest income utilizing the level-yield method over the life of each loan. Contractually required payments for interest and principal that exceed the undiscounted cash flows expected at acquisition, or the “non-accretable difference,” are not recognized as a yield adjustment, as a loss accrual or as a valuation allowance.

Increases in expected cash flows subsequent to the acquisition are recognized prospectively through an adjustment of the yield on the loans over the remaining life, while decreases in expected cash flows are recognized as impairments through a loss provision and an increase in the allowance for loan and lease losses. Valuation allowances (recognized in the allowance for loan and lease losses) on these impaired loans reflect only losses incurred after the acquisition (representing all cash flows that were expected at acquisition but currently are not expected to be received).
