NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--()--Orange County Business Bank (the “Bank”) (OTCBB: OCBB) announced financial results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2011.
The Bank’s net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $84 thousand versus net income of $272 thousand for the same period in 2010. The Bank reported net loss for the first nine months of 2011 of $221 thousand versus net income of $29 thousand for the same period in 2010.
The Bank’s net interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $1.3 million versus $1.7 million a year ago. The difference of $400 thousand in net interest income was primarily driven by a decrease in the total loans outstanding. As the economy has stagnated, the Bank has not been able to replace the loans that have paid off as expected. The Bank continues to focus all of its efforts and attention to acquiring high quality clients. Non-interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $166 thousand versus $150 thousand for the same period last year. Additionally, non-interest expense was up for the third quarter of 2011 over the same period in 2010, $1.6 million versus $1.4 million, respectively. The difference in the non-interest expense category was largely driven by a reimbursement in 2010 of expenses related to a single loan for which a large recovery of prior expenditures was paid by the borrower.
Net interest income after provisions for loan and lease losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $4.2 million versus $4.5 million for the same period in 2010. The difference of $300 thousand was driven by a decrease in interest income, but was largely offset by a lack of provision in 2011 due to the improving asset quality of the Bank. Non-interest income for the first nine months of 2011 was $485 thousand versus $868 thousand for the same period in 2010. The difference in this category from year over year was a decrease in the gains on sale of securities in 2011. To help offset the decrease in revenues, the Bank reduced non-interest expenses by $349 thousand for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 versus the same period in 2010. The Bank continues to look for methods to reduce overhead expense while focusing on getting back to profitability.
As of September 30, 2011, the Bank had a ratio of Shareholders’ Equity to Total Assets of nearly 20%. At September 30, 2011, the Bank’s assets totaled $195.1 million, with loans totaling $113.9 million, and deposits totaling $133.5 million. The Bank’s capital ratios continued to far exceed regulatory guidelines for “well-capitalized” institutions at September 30, 2011.
