May 28, 2014

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Orange County Business Bank (the “Bank”) (OTCBB:OCBB) announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

The Bank’s pre-provision net income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $12 thousand versus a net loss of $130 thousand for the same period in 2013. The improvement in operational profitability was driven by an increase in loans outstanding as well as increases in the generation of non-interest income. The Bank produced $12.4 million in new loans during the first quarter of 2014 after producing approximately $43 million for all of 2013. During the first quarter of 2013, the Bank reversed $575 thousand of provisions to the allowance for loan and lease losses versus no reversals for the same period in 2014. The reversal of provisions during the first quarter of 2013 resulted in net income of $445 thousand. The Bank’s net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $1.5 million versus $1.2 million a year ago.

Non-interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $133 thousand versus $121 thousand for the same period last year. Non-interest expense was higher for the first quarter of 2014 over the same period in 2013, $1.6 million versus $1.5 million, respectively.

As of March 31, 2014, the Bank had a ratio of Shareholders’ Equity to Total Assets of nearly 20%. At March 31, 2014, the Bank’s assets totaled $192.0 million, with loans totaling $112.2 million, and deposits totaling $132.4 million.
