New Resource Bank reports third quarter 2016 financial results

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Resource Bank (OTC Link LLC:NWBN) has announced unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

The bank performed strongly in the third quarter. Gross loans totaled $236.9 million —  a $50 million or 27 percent increase over September 30, 2015. Factors influencing the robust growth in loans are a favorable economic environment coupled with the attractiveness of our mission to socially and environmentally responsible organizations. Total deposits amounted to $277.3 million, an increase of $39 million or 16 percent over September 30, 2015. Asset quality remained strong, with non-performing assets to total assets declining from 0.63 percent to 0.13 percent.

Pre-tax net income rose to $720,000, a 169 percent increase from the third quarter of 2015, while net income for the quarter dropped to $274,000.  The decline in net income from $7.1 million from the quarter ended September 30, 2015, reflects the impact of income taxes. In the third quarter of 2015 the bank recognized a deferred tax asset amounting to $6.9 million, which was primarily associated with an accumulated net operating loss carryforward.  The rise in pre-tax net income reflects our sound asset quality together with the 21% growth in net interest income.

“The strength of our business model in serving values-aligned organizations is underscored by our solid asset quality and loan and deposit growth. Our positive financial results demonstrate our continuing success as a values-based bank focused on growing the new economy,” said Vincent Siciliano, New Resource Bank president and CEO.

Key financial results from the third quarter of 2016 compared with the same quarter of 2015 include:

  • Loan growth: Loans outstanding grew 27 percent, to $236.9 million from $186.3 million one year ago.
  • Asset quality: Non-performing assets to total assets decreased from 0.63 percent to 0.13 percent as a result of the charge-off of a single loan in the fourth quarter of 2015. 
  • Deposit growth: Deposits rose 16 percent to $277.3 million from $238.5 million one year ago.
  • Total assets: Total assets increased 14 percent to $320.4 million from $280.2 million one year ago.
  • Net interest income: Net interest income for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 was $3.1 million, an increase of $541,000 or 21 percent from the third quarter of 2015.
  • Non-interest income: Non-interest income for the third quarter was $288,000, an increase of $83,000 or 41 percent.  A key factor influencing growth was revenue generated from the purchase of bank-owned life insurance earlier in 2016.
  • Non-interest expense: Non-interest expense for the third quarter was $2.7 million, an increase of $187,000 or 8 percent. The increase was influenced by the expansion in staffing to support the bank’s growth; the bank currently has 47 employees.
  • Provision expense: Provision expense reflected a reduction of $15,000 for the quarter, due to our sound asset quality. 
  • Efficiency ratio: The bank’s efficiency ratio for the third quarter was 79.3 percent, a decrease from 90.4 percent from the third quarter of 2015.  Performance was positively impacted by revenue growth from loans outpacing the growth in expenses.
  • Risk-based capital:  The common equity tier 1 capital ratio amounted to 12.83 percent and the total risk-based capital ratio was 14.09 percent, significantly above the standard for a well-capitalized bank.

“I am pleased with our favorable performance this quarter. Our strong financial ratios help maintain the bank’s solid foundation for us to continue to grow our mission to help achieve well-being for people and the planet through banking,” stated Mark A. Finser, chairman of the New Resource Bank board.
