Banc of California, Inc. Reports 2013 Second Quarter Financial Results

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Banc of California, Inc. (NAS: BANC) (the "Company"), the holding company for Pacific Trust Bank and Beach Business Bank, today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. For the quarter, the Company reported net income and earnings available to common stockholders of $4.36 million or $0.36 per diluted common share. This compares with net income available to common stockholders of $641 thousand, or $0.05 per diluted common share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013, and net loss available to common stockholders of $1.05 million, or ($0.09) per diluted common share, for the preceding second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Year to date, the Company reported net income of $5.29 million with earnings available to common shareholders of $5 million, or $0.41 per diluted common share. This compares with net loss available to common shareholders of $1.1 million or ($0.09) per diluted common share for the first six months of 2012. The Company's consolidated assets totaled $2.5 billion at June 30, 2013, an increase of $484.1 million compared with $2.1 billion at March 31, 2013 and an increase of $1.4 billion compared with $1.1 billion at June 30, 2012. Year to date, total assets increased by $852.4 million. Loans and leases receivable remained flat quarter over quarter at $1.6 billion on June 30, 2013, a year to date increase of $363.3 million and an increase of $768.2 million compared with $829.1 million at June 30, 2012. The increases in total assets and loans and leases receivable were due mainly to organic loan growth, loans acquired in the Beach Business Bank and Gateway Bancorp acquisitions, purchases of seasoned residential mortgage loans, and growth in deposits to support the previously announced branch sale anticipated to close in fourth quarter 2013. Total deposits of $2.1 billion at June 30, 2013 represented an increase of $411.0 million compared with $1.7 billion at March 31, 2013. Year to date, deposits have increased by $803.5 million and by $1.3 billion compared with $852.3 million at June 30, 2012.

Steven Sugarman, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated: "We continue to transform our banking franchise. During the second quarter we grew our retail core deposit base and expanded our residential mortgage lending platform. We also successfully closed the acquisition of The Private Bank of California on July 1, 2013. To support these strategic initiatives, we completed two capital raises in June - a common and a preferred stock offering - demonstrating our capital markets capability and commitment to support our capital and liquidity needs. During the second half of the year, we will continue to focus on enhancing long term profitability through the consolidation of our two banks into one nationally chartered financial institution, the closing of the pending acquisitions of The Palisades Group and CS Financial, and the sale of eight non-core branch locations."


The Company plans to discuss its second quarter earnings, among other items, on August 7, 2013, at 8:00 a.m., Pacific Time. All interested parties are welcome to attend the conference call at 866-503-8728, event code 26768941.
