Total Assets Top $75 Million at Endeavor Bank


San Diego's first new community bank in 10 years continues to grow

Endeavor Bank (OTC:EDVR), having completed its third quarter of
banking operations since opening for business on January 22, 2018,
reported continuing strong loan and deposit growth. Unaudited results as
of the September 30, 2018, reporting date show total assets of $75.1
million compared to $50.3 million at June 30, 2018, an increase of $24.8
million, or 49%. Deposits totaling $52.9 million nearly doubled since
last quarter-end and included $21.3 million in non-interest bearing
demand deposit accounts, making up a healthy 40% of the Bank's deposit
portfolio. Total gross loans grew to $36.5 million at September 30,
2018, more than doubling since the last quarter-end.

Dan Yates, CEO, stated, "After just eight full months of commencing
banking operations, we are very pleased with Endeavor Bank's performance
thus far. Our balance sheet growth is tracking slightly ahead of plan,
and we continue to generate quality originations in both the deposit and
loan portfolios. Having said that, we do want to temper the exuberance
just a bit. Based on the underlying business cycles of some of our
customers, we believe that a portion of our recent deposit growth is
transitory, and we expect it to redeploy off our balance sheet early in
the fourth quarter. Even after deducting these, what we call temporary
deposit fluctuations, our overall deposit growth was still exceptionally
strong for the quarter." Mr. Yates further stated, "We continue to build
our banking platform offering the latest technology, coupled with our
consultative banking approach, to provide tangible value to our business
owner clients."
