IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2013) - Plaza Bank (
For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, net income improved to $4,285,000, and $0.24 per diluted share, from $1,810,000, and $0.11 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2012. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Bank's return on average assets was 1.30% and return on average equity was 11.14%, up from a return on average assets of 0.65% and a return on average equity of 5.09% for the first nine months of 2012.
Gene Galloway, President and Chief Executive Officer of Plaza Bank, in commenting on the year-to-date results, stated, "Our surge in net income of 136.7% is being driven by the 17.2% or $56 million increase in loans held for investment since the beginning of the year. The increase in loans has pushed our loan interest income up $4.0 million or 30.1% compared to the first three quarters of 2012. Additionally, our cost of deposits is down $272,000 year to date compared to the same period in 2012 even though our deposits have increased $51 million or 14.7% since September 30, 2012."
Highlights for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2013 included:
- The acquisition of $12.1 million of assets and $19.1 million of deposits from 1st Commerce Bank, North Las Vegas, Nevada under a purchase and assumption agreement with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation on June 6, 2013 generated $624,000 in gain on acquisition. $524,000 of the gain was recognized in the third quarter.
- During the quarter the Bank sold $12.8 million of SBA 7A loans that generated $682,000 in gains. For the nine months ending September 30, 2013, the Bank sold $38.7 million of SBA 7A loans that generated $2.6 million in gains.
