Record Profitability from PPP Loan Forgiveness and Strong Core Customer Growth
SAN DIEGO, August 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As anticipated, declines in balance sheet totals during the quarter resulted mainly from the forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. As of June 30, 2021, the Bank’s total assets equaled almost $464 million, a decline from March 31, 2021 of nearly $48 million, or -9%. Total deposits equaled $269 million at the end of the second quarter, a decline of $9 million or -3% from March 31, 2021, and total loans equaled $364 million, a decline of almost $22 million or -6% during the quarter. The Bank continued to originate PPP loans through the expiration date of the program on June 30, 2021. At the end of the second quarter, total PPP loan balances equaled $157 million, reflecting a decline of $43 million from March 31, 2021. During the same period, non-PPP loan balances increased $21 million to $207 million.
Net income after tax for the second quarter totaled $1.741 million, a material increase from first quarter net income of $294 thousand. Improvement resulted largely from the recognition of higher PPP related income during the quarter, as well as increased earnings from growth in non-PPP loans.

Dan Yates, CEO, said, "As we emerge from the pandemic, we notched our fifth consecutive quarter of profitability. PPP fee income has been a strong profit driver this quarter and for the first half of the year, but not the only driver. Our core loan and deposit growth, loans and deposits from non-PPP clients, is providing a boost to asset growth and profitability."
Steve Sefton, President, added, "As we move through the forgiveness phase of PPP, we are starting to see the balance sheet contract as we predicted. PPP loans are being forgiven by the SBA and repaid, which triggers recognition of fee income. From the beginning of the PPP program, through the end of the second quarter of this year, Endeavor has recognized $5.6 million in PPP fee income with $4.4 million more expected to be recognized as the balance of PPP loans are forgiven. PPP fee income is not only driving bank profits but also providing a permanent increase in Bank capital though retained earnings. We are pleased with our results this quarter, the first half of 2021, and we are optimistic about the future."
Scott Parker, Chief Credit Officer, commented, "We continue to be pleased with the quality and performance of the loan portfolio, especially given the uncertainty present at the outset of the COVID 19 pandemic. With no material delinquencies, no non-accrual loans, and no charge-offs, Endeavor Bank asset quality remains favorable."
