IRVINE, Calif.--()--Orange County Business Bank (the “Bank”) (OTCBB: OCBB) announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2012.
The Bank’s net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $79 thousand versus a net loss of $95 thousand for the same period in 2011. The Bank’s net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $1.3 million versus $1.5 million a year ago. The difference of $200 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 March 31, 2012 was $220 thousand versus $110 thousand for the same period last year. Additionally, non-interest expense was down for the first quarter of 2012 over the same period in 2011, $1.6 million versus $1.7 million, respectively.
As of March 31, 2012, the Bank had a ratio of Shareholders’ Equity to Total Assets of more than 21%. At March 31, 2012, the Bank’s assets totaled $178.7 million, with loans totaling $88.9 million, and deposits totaling $120.5 million. The Bank’s capital ratios continue to far exceed regulatory guidelines for “well-capitalized” institutions at March 31, 2012.
Also, during the first quarter of 2012, the Bank relocated its office to 17901 Von Karman Avenue, Suite 100, Irvine, CA 92614. This move increased the Bank’s total square footage which will allow for future growth, but also reduced costs as a result of lowered rent and other related occupancy expenses.
