Orange County Business Bank Announces Financial Results
Orange County Business Bank (the “Bank”) (OTCBB: OCBB) announced financial results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2012.
The Bank's net income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $693 thousand versus a net loss of $84 thousand for the same period in 2011. The Bank reported net income for the first nine months of 2012 of $567 thousand versus a net loss of $221 thousand for the same period in 2011.
The Bank's net interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $1.0 million versus $1.3 million a year ago. The difference of $300 thousand in net interest income was primarily driven by a decrease in the total loans outstanding. As the economy has stagnated, the Bank has not been able to replace the loans that have paid off. The provision for loan and lease losses was a benefit of $1 million. Non-interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $420 thousand versus $166 thousand for the same period last year as the Bank repositioned its investment securities portfolio and earned increased gains from the corresponding sale of securities comparing this quarter to the same quarter a year ago. Non-interest expense was up for the third quarter of 2012 over the same period in 2011, $1.8 million versus $1.6 million, respectively due to restructuring costs and legal fees.
Net interest income after the release of reserves from the allowance for loan and lease losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $4.5 million versus $4.2 million for the same period in 2011. The difference of $300 thousand was due to a decrease in loan interest income. Non-interest income for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.1 million versus $485 thousand for the same period in 2011 due to the increase in gains on sales of investment securities. Non-interest expense was $5.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 versus $4.9 million for the same period in 2011.
As of September 30, 2012, the Bank had a ratio of Shareholders' Equity to Total Assets of 22.6%. At September 30, 2012, the Bank's assets totaled $172.5 million, with loans totaling $78.8 million, and deposits totaling $117.5 million.
