Orange County Business Bank Announces Financial Results

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Orange County Business Bank (the "Bank") (OTCBB: OCBB) announced financial results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2013.

The Bank's net income for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $204 thousand versus a net loss of $47 thousand for the same period in 2012. The Bank reported net income for the first six months of 2013 of $649 thousand versus a net loss of $126 thousand for the same period in 2012.


The Bank's net interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $1.4 million versus $1.1 million a year ago. The difference of $300 thousand in net interest income was primarily driven by an increase in the total loans outstanding. Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $2.6 million versus $2.4 million for the same period in 2012. The difference of $200 thousand was due to an increase in the total loans outstanding. 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.

The Bank continues to experience large recoveries on previous problem loans as well as the improvement in the performance of our current loan portfolio. Due to these recoveries and improvements, the Bank was required to reverse back into income amounts in its allowance for loan and lease losses as the Bank had an excess of reserves. The provision for loan and lease losses for the first six months of 2013 was a benefit of $759 thousand versus no provision in 2012. Additionally, the Bank had a benefit for the provision of loan and lease losses of $184 thousand for the second quarter of 2013 versus no provision during the same period in 2012.

Non-interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $138 thousand versus $467 thousand for the same period last year. Non-interest income for the first six months of 2013 was $259 thousand versus $687 thousand for the same period in 2012. For both the three months and six months ended on June 30, 2013, the Bank reduced the amount of gains taken on investment securities sold compared to the previous year.

Non-interest expense was down for the second quarter of 2013 over the same period in 2012, $1.5 million versus $1.6 million, respectively. Non-interest expense was $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 versus $3.2 million for the same period in 2012. The Bank continues to look for ways to reduce non-interest expense by reviewing contracts, internal resource allocation and client relationship costs.

In addition to the continued profitability, the Bank grew assets by more than 10% during the first 6 months of 2013. At June 30, 2013, the Bank's assets totaled $188.4 million, with loans totaling $114.9 million, and deposits totaling $126.9 million. As of June 30, 2013, the Bank had a ratio of Shareholders' Equity to Total Assets of 19.7%. The Bank's capital ratios continue to far exceed regulatory guidelines for "well-capitalized" institutions.
