Peapack-Gladstone Bank Announces Sale of Paycheck Protection Program Loans

Bedminster, NJ – (NewMediaWire) – September 03, 2020 – Peapack-Gladstone Bank, the
wholly owned subsidiary of Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation (NASDAQ
Global Select Market: PGC), announced the sale of $354.9 million of Paycheck
Protection Program loans to The Loan Source, Inc.  The Bank expects to
realize a pre-tax gain of approximately $7.4 million in the current quarter as
a result of the sale.  After giving effect to the sale, Peapack-Gladstone
Bank will hold approximately $203.5 million of Paycheck Protection Loans,
almost all of which exceed $2.0 million in original principal amount.

“Our
employees worked around the clock to process thousands of PPP loan applications
over the past few months,” stated Doug Kennedy, President and CEO. “It’s been a
tremendous effort, and now it’s time to continue helping our clients navigate
the economic impact of COVID-19 by partnering with a long-standing and
respected SBA small business lending company, with deep knowledge and focus on
PPP, to take over the forgiveness and ongoing servicing process. We expect the
sale of the PPP loans to allow a return to a more normal course of business,
freeing up staff to focus on traditional lending efforts and providing
excellent service to our clients.”

The Loan
Source and its servicing partner, ACAP SME, LLC, have invested heavily in
technologies and personnel to aid PPP borrowers through the forgiveness process
via an online portal.
