U & I Financial Corp. Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Continues Growth with PPP Loans

LYNNWOOD, Wash.--()--U & I Financial Corp. (OTCQX: UNIF), the holding company for UniBank, today reported second quarter net income of $1.5 million or $0.26 per share, as compared to $1.4 million or $0.26 per share for the same quarter of 2019, despite $300 thousand in higher Provision for Loan and Lease Losses expense. For the year, net income exceeded $2.8 million or $0.51 per share, increasing by $150 thousand or $0.02 per share from the same period last year, despite $550 thousand in higher Provision for Loan and Lease Losses expense.

As of June 30, 2020, total assets ended at $380.4 million, increasing by $57.2 million or 17.7% from the year earlier period of $323.2 million. Net loans reached $281.5 million, increasing by $63.9 million or 29.4% from the year earlier period of $217.6 million. During this quarter, the Bank funded 391 PPP loans, totaling $41.4 million. Finally, total deposits grew by $48.8 million or 18.5% to $313.4 million from the year earlier period of $264.6 million.

We had another solid quarter, despite the continuing operational and financial challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Peter Park, President and CEO. He added that, “Fortunately, due to our swift pandemic responses taken early on, we were able to operate safely with minimal disruptions. On the financial side, I am very proud of our staff for their accomplishments in generating the PPP loans, which helped drive much of the growth this quarter. Although our nonperforming assets ratio remained relatively unchanged, we significantly increased our provision for loan losses for the second quarter in a row, due to the continued economic uncertainties. All in all, despite further challenges looming ahead, due to the dedication of our capable staff and astute guidance from our board, we believe that we have built a strong foundation to continuously deliver favorable returns to our shareholders.”
