Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the Members of the NorthEast Community Bank Audit Committee, the Plan Administrator of the NorthEast Community Bank Employees’ Savings & Profit Sharing Plan and Trust and Plan Participants:

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying Statements of Net Assets Available for Benefits of the NorthEast Community Bank Employees’ Savings & Profit Sharing Plan and Trust (the Plan) as of December 31, 2021, and 2020, and the related Statement of Changes in Net Assets Available for Benefits for the year ended December 31, 2021, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of the Plan as of December 31, 2021, and 2020 and the changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Plan’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Plan in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Supplemental Information

 

The supplemental Schedule H, Line 4(i) – Schedule of Assets (Held at End of Year) as of December 31, 2021, has been subjected to audit procedures performed in conjunction with the audit of the Plan’s financial statements. The supplemental information is the responsibility of the Plan’s management. Our audit procedures included determining whether the supplemental information reconciles to the financial statements or the underlying accounting and other records, as applicable, and performing procedures to test the completeness and accuracy of the information presented in the supplemental information. In forming our opinion on the supplemental information, we evaluated whether the supplemental information, including its form and content, is presented in conformity with the Department of Labor's Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. In our opinion, the supplemental information is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the financial statements as a whole.

NORTHEAST COMMUNITY BANK EMPLOYEES’

SAVINGS & PROFIT SHARING PLAN AND TRUST

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

 

A. Plan Description:

 

The following description of the NorthEast Community Bank Employees’ Savings & Profit Sharing Plan and Trust (the “Plan”) provides only general information. Participants should refer to the plan document for more detailed information.

 

General

 

The Plan is a defined contribution plan sponsored by NorthEast Community Bank (the “Company”) covering substantially all employees who have attained 18 years of age. The Plan is subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”).

 

Contributions

 

Participants may contribute up to 60% of their gross compensation, as defined in the Plan, on a pre-tax basis or on an after-tax (“Roth”) basis, subject to Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) limitations. Participants who are at least age 50 may make an additional pretax "catch-up" contribution subject to IRC limitations. The Plan provides for automatic enrollment in the amount of 3% of compensation for new employees who do not opt out. Participants who are automatically enrolled are also automatically increased by 1% annually up to 5%. Participants may also contribute funds from another qualified retirement plan (“rollover contributions”), subject to certain requirements.

 

The Company may make discretionary non-elective contributions. Participants must work at least 1,000 hours during the plan year and be employed on the last day of the plan year to be eligible for discretionary non-elective contributions. No discretionary non-elective contributions were made during 2021.

 

Participant Accounts

 

Each participant’s account is credited or charged with contributions, investment income, and administrative expenses. Investment income, including realized and unrealized gains and losses, and expenses are allocated to participant’s accounts based on each participant’s account balance within each fund. Participants determine the percentage in which contributions are to be invested in each fund, except for investments in the Company Stock which are not open to new investments as of December 31, 2021. Participants may change their investment options as set forth in the plan document. The benefit to which a participant is entitled is the benefit that can be provided from the participant's vested account.

Vesting

 

Participants are fully vested in that portion of their account which represents their contributions and the income earned thereon. Participants become 100% vested in the Company’s contributions and earnings thereon upon death, total and permanent disability, or attainment of normal retirement age. Otherwise, a participant’s interest in the Company’s contributions and earnings thereon vests according to the following:

 

Completed Years of Service   Percent Vested
1 year   0 %
2 years   20 %
3 years   40 %
4 years   60 %
5 years   80 %
6 years   100 %

 

Forfeitures

 

When certain terminations of participation in the Plan occur, the nonvested portion of a participant’s account represents a forfeiture, as defined by the Plan. If a forfeiting participant is re-employed and fulfills certain requirements, as set forth in the Plan, the participant’s account will be restored. Forfeitures can be used to reduce administrative expenses or to reduce employer contributions. No forfeitures were used to pay for administrative expenses or to reduce employer contributions during 2021. Total unapplied forfeitures on December 31, 2021 and 2020 were $1,842 and $1,232, respectively.

 

Distribution of Benefits

 

Benefits may be distributed to participants upon termination of employment by reason of retirement, disability, death, or other separation from service. Distributions from the Plan may be made in the form of a lump sum or annuity.

 

A participant may also request a withdrawal upon attainment of age 59 ½ or upon demonstration by the participant to the plan administrator that the participant is suffering from “hardship”, as defined in the plan document. A participant may also take a distribution from their rollover account balance at any time.

 

Notes Receivable from Participants

 

Participants may borrow from their fund accounts a minimum of $1,000 up to a maximum equal to the lesser of $50,000 or 50 percent of their vested account balance. The loans are secured by the balance in the participant's account. Loans must bear a reasonable rate of interest. All loans must be repaid within five years unless the proceeds are used to acquire a principal residence, in which case a longer repayment period is allowed. No more than two loans may be outstanding at any time. Principal and interest is generally paid ratably through payroll deductions each pay period.

B. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies:

 

Basis of Accounting

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared using the accrual basis of accounting.

 

Investment Valuation and Income Recognition

 

Investments are reported at fair value. Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. See Note C for discussion of fair value measurements.

 

Purchases and sales of securities are recorded on a trade-date basis. Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis. Dividends are recorded on the ex-dividend date. Net appreciation (depreciation) includes the Plan’s gains and losses on investments bought and sold as well as held during the year.

 

Notes Receivable from Participants

 

Notes receivable from participants are measured at their unpaid principal balance plus any accrued but unpaid interest. Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis. No allowance for credit losses has been recorded as of December 31, 2021 or 2020. Delinquent participant loans are reclassified as distributions based upon the terms of the plan document.

 

Payment of Benefits

 

Benefits are recorded when paid.

 

Plan Expenses

 

Expenses that are paid by the Company are excluded from these financial statements. The majority of expenses incurred in the administration of the Plan are paid by the Company. Remaining expenses are paid by the Plan.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and changes therein, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

C. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS:

 

The framework for measuring fair value provides a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under FASB ASC 820 are described as follows:

 

Level 1 - Inputs to the valuation methodology are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Plan has the ability to access.

 

Level 2 - Inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in inactive markets; inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability; inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means. If the assets or liability has a specified (contractual) term, the level 2 input must be observable for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

 

Level 3 - Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

 

The asset or liability’s fair value measurement level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

Following is a description of the valuation methodologies used by the Plan:

 

Northeast Community Bancorp, Inc. Stock At December 31, 2021, valued at the daily closing price as publicly traded on the market. At December 31, 2020, valued at fair value based upon an independent appraisal. This appraisal was based upon a combination of the market and income valuation techniques. The appraiser took into account historical and projected net income, growth rate, prior transactions share value, capitalization factor, return on equity, and market comparables.

 

Mutual funds – At December 31, 2021 and 2020, valued at the daily closing price as reported by the fund. Mutual funds held by the Plan are open-end mutual funds that are registered with the SEC. These funds are required to publish their daily net asset value (NAV) and to transact at that price. The mutual funds held by the Plan are deemed to be actively traded.

 

Common collective trust – At December 31, 2021 and 2020, valued at the net asset value of units of a collective trust. The net asset value, as provided by the fund manager, is used as a practical expedient to estimate fair value. The net asset value is based on the fair value of the underlying investments held by the fund less its liabilities. This practical expedient would not be used if it is determined to be probable that the fund will sell the investment for an amount different from the reported net asset value.

(1) In accordance with Subtopic 820-10, certain investments that were measured at net asset value per share (or its equivalent) have not been classified in the fair value hierarchy. The fair value amounts presented in this table are intended to permit reconciliation of the fair value hierarchy to the line items presented in the statements of net assets available for benefits.

 

Redemptions of the common collective trust held by the Plan are allowed daily for participants; however, the Plan is subject to a twelve-month redemption notice period. There are no unfunded commitments.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

 

At December 31, 2020, the Northeast Community Bancorp, Inc. Stock held by the Plan is reported at fair value based upon an independent appraisal. The appraisal was based upon a combination of the market and income valuation techniques as illustrated in the following tables:

 

    2020  
    Fair     Principal Valuation   Unobservable
Instrument   Value     Technique   Input(s)
Northeast Community Bancorp, Inc. Stock   $ 919,692     Income   Capitalization factor
                Earnings power
                Risk free rate
                Equity Risk premium
                Size premium
                Long-term growth rate
                Discount for lack of marketability
                 
            Market   Public comparables
                Price to earnings multiples
                Price to book value multiples
                Price to tangible book value multiples
                Discount for lack of marketability

 

During 2021, the Northeast Community Bancorp, Inc. stock was transferred from level 3 investment to level 1 investment due to the Company’s second-step conversion completed in July 2021. There were no other transfers in or out of the level 3 investment during the year.

 

D. Tax Status:

 

The Plan has adopted the volume submitter profit sharing plan document of FMR LLC. The volume submitter sponsor received a favorable opinion letter dated June 30, 2020 in which the IRS stated that the form of the volume submitter plan was in compliance with the applicable requirements of the IRC. The plan administrator believes that the Plan is designed and being operated in compliance with the applicable requirements of the IRC, and that the related trust is therefore tax-exempt.

 

Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America require plan management to evaluate tax positions taken by the plan and recognize a tax liability if the plan has taken an uncertain position that more likely than not would not be sustained upon examination by the IRS. The Plan is subject to routine audits by taxing jurisdictions; however, there are currently no audits for any tax periods in progress.

 

E. PARTIES-IN-INTEREST:

 

Section 3(14) of ERISA defines a party-in-interest to include, among others, fiduciaries or employees of the Plan, any person who provides services to the Plan or an employer whose employees are covered by the Plan. Accordingly, loans to participants and the management of investments held by the trustee are considered party-in-interest transactions.

The Plan invests in Northeast Community Bancorp, Inc. Stock. Northeast Community Bancorp, Inc. is a Maryland corporation that was incorporated in May 2021 to be the successor to NorthEast Community Bancorp, Inc., a federally chartered corporation (the “Mid-Tier Holding Company”), upon completion of the second-step conversion of NorthEast Community Bank (the “Bank”) from the two-tier mutual holding company structure to the stock holding company structure. In conjunction with the second-step conversion, each of NorthEast Community Bancorp, MHC and the Mid-Tier Holding Company merged out of existence and now cease to exist. The second-step conversion was completed on July 12, 2021, at which time each of the existing outstanding shares of Mid-Tier Holding Company common stock owned by persons other than NorthEast Community Bancorp, MHC was converted into 1.3400 shares of Company common stock.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Plan purchased shares in the amount of $11,297, sold shares in the amount of $12,985, and had net appreciation in fair value in the amount of $138,346. Of the shares purchased, $11,297 were reinvested as dividends, and of the shares sold, $12,985 was distributed to participants. The total value of the Plan’s interest in the Company Common Stock was $1,056,350 and $919,692 on December 31, 2021, and 2020, respectively. The total number of shares held by the Plan was 94,887 and 94,773¹ on December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

¹Shares amounts related to periods prior to the July 12, 2021 closing of the Company’s second-step conversion offering have been restated to give retroactive recognition to the 1.3400 exchange ratio applied in the conversion offering.

 

F. Plan Termination:

 

Although the Plan was established with the intention that it will continue indefinitely, the Company retains the right to discontinue its contributions at any time or to terminate the Plan, subject to the provisions of ERISA.

 

G. PREPAID CONTRIBUTIONS:

 

Participant contributions from the first pay date of the 2022 plan year were contributed to the Plan on December 30, 2021. This contribution has been recorded as a prepaid contribution as of December 31, 2021.

 

H. Risks and uncertainties:

 

The Plan invests in various investment securities. Investment securities are exposed to various risks, such as interest rate, market, and credit risks. Market risks include global events which could impact the value of investment securities. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investment securities, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in the value of investment securities will occur in the near term and that such changes could materially affect participants' account balances and the amounts reported in the statements of net assets available for benefits.
