Frank Di Tomaso, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented: “Despite the compression on margins experienced by most banks caused by historically low interest rates, the Bank continues to perform well and has maintained a relatively consistent net interest margin. As of June 30, 2020, the Bank has funded $50.7 million in Payroll Protection Plan (“PPP”) loans in support of our community. While it is not yet fully clear how this pandemic will impact our customers and the economy in general, Bank of Santa Clarita continues to maintain strong capital levels, excess liquidity, and excellent credit quality which will allow us to continue to support the communities we serve and navigate through this pandemic. I am proud of our associates and confident in our ability to succeed despite these challenges.”
