New Resource Bank Reports Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

SAN FRANCISCO, July 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Resource Bank (OTC Pink:NWBN) has announced unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

New Resource continued our loan and deposit growth this quarter but overall net income slowed due to expenses associated with our July office move as well as the impact of loan payoffs on interest income. Gross loans amount to $179.6 million—a 2.8 percent increase over June 30, 2014. Loan growth was slower than expected due to several loan payoffs during the quarter. Total deposits continued their robust growth, amounting to $229 million—an increase of 11.5 percent over June 30, 2014. Despite loan and deposit growth, net income contracted for the quarter to $359,000, a 23 percent decline compared with net income of $466,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

"We expanded into our new office space in July and experienced several loan payoffs this quarter, which impacted our financial performance. We continue to experience loan and deposit growth and therefore look forward to finishing the year strongly," said Vince Siciliano, New Resource Bank president and CEO.

Key financial results from the second quarter of 2015 compared with the same quarter of 2014 include:

  • Loan growth: Loans outstanding grew 2.8 percent, to $179.6 million from $174.7 million a year ago. This represents a decline from $181.4 million at the end of 2014 resulting from late first quarter 2015 payoffs.
  • Asset quality: Non-performing assets to total assets increased from 0.09 percent to 0.67 percent. The increase in non-performing assets was the result of a single commercial loan classified as non-accrual in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Deposits: Deposits rose 11.5 percent, to $229 million at June 30, 2015, from $205 million at June 30, 2014.
  • Total assets: Total assets increased 10.6 percent, to $262 million at June 30, 2015 from $237 million at June 30, 2014.
  • Net interest income: Net interest income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $2.54 million, a 4.8 percent increase from $2.43 million for the quarter ended on June 30, 2014.
  • Non-interest expense: Non-interest expense for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $2.44 million, a 12.5 percent increase from $2.16 million for the quarter ended on June 30, 2014. The increase was primarily due to an expansion in staffing to support the bank's growth and expenses associated with the office move in July of 2015.
  • Efficiency ratio: The bank's efficiency ratio for the quarter ended on June 30, 2015 was 87 percent, an increase from 82 percent for the quarter ended June 2014. As with non-interest expense, the increase was primarily due to an expansion in staffing to support the bank's growth and expenses associated with the office move in July of 2015.
  • Risk-based capital: The second quarter of 2015 reflected the capital changes associated with BASEL III. The bank's new common equity tier 1 capital ratio amounted to 15.8 percent and total risk-based capital ratio was 17.0 percent, significantly above the standard for a well-capitalized bank.

"I view the second and upcoming third quarter as transition periods given the competitive loan marketplace as well as the financial impact of our July move to a new location," said Mark A. Finser, chairman of the New Resource Bank board. "We continue to see strong demand for our unique lending expertise in our key target markets and with borrowers that want to align their financing with their values."
