Orange County Business Bank Announces Net Income

IRVINE, Calif.--()--Orange County Business Bank (the “Bank”) (OTCBB: OCBB) announced net income for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2014.

The Bank’s net income for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $137 thousand compared to $204 thousand for the same period in 2013. The Bank reported net income for the first six months of 2014 of $149 thousand compared to $649 thousand for the same period in 2013.

The Bank’s net interest income for the second quarter of 2014 and 2013 was $1.4 million each, respectively. Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $2.8 million versus $2.6 million for the same period in 2013. The Bank continues to aggressively push into established and successful markets to develop profitable relationships. This push has resulted in the growth of loans, deposits and net interest income on a year to date basis.

The Bank released excess reserves during the second quarters of 2013 and 2014 from the allowance for loan and lease losses due to recoveries and continued strong performance of the Bank’s loan portfolio. The release of provision for loan and lease losses for the first six months of 2014 was $157 thousand versus a release of $759 thousand in 2013.

In addition to continued profitability, the Bank grew assets by 6.3% during the first 6 months of 2014. At June 30, 2014, the Bank’s assets totaled $198.2 million, with loans increasing to $114.3 million, and deposits totaling $134.4 million. The Bank’s capital increased from $37.1 million at December 31, 2013 to $38.4 million at June 30, 2014 due to the Bank’s net income as well as an increase in the underlying value of the Bank’s investment securities portfolio. The Bank’s capital ratios continue to far exceed regulatory guidelines for “well-capitalized” institutions.

Subsequent Event Note: The Bank received its largest single principal and interest recovery on July 1, 2014 – the first day of the third quarter. The total $2.2 million recovery includes $206,000 of recovered interest. The principal amount will be reviewed at the end of the third quarter of 2014 to determine the appropriate amount to be allocated to income versus keeping a portion in reserves to support loan growth. This recovery is the result of an ongoing, long-term plan for the recuperation of previous charge-offs.
