Anker Fanoe, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “The third quarter results further enhance the momentum the Bank has been experiencing throughout 2018.  Our strategic goals this year have focused on market expansion while supporting the local industries which have been the Bank’s core business since our inception.”  He continued, “We have worked to strengthen and expand our customer relationships, adhering to the principles of community banking by offering personal, incomparable service.   The successful financial performance of the Bank supports that strategy of measured business development with a commitment towards sustainability.”

“Thus far, the loan portfolio has demonstrated robust loan growth, advancing $46.2 million since September 30, 2017,” Mr. Fanoe continued. “Growth has been centered primarily in real estate secured loans, located within the Bank’s local market area of Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties.  Loan quality remains strong with non-performing assets accounting for less than 1% of the Bank’s total assets.  The Board of Directors wishes to express its appreciation for the Bank’s steadfast shareholders, loyal customers and dedicated employees for contributing to the Bank’s ongoing success as a leader in local community banking.”

Total Assets were $281.4 million at September 30, 2018, representing a net growth of $25.5 million or 10% growth over total assets of $256.0 million at September 30, 2017.  Outstanding loan balances grew to $230.2 million, an increase of $19.7 million since December 31, 2017, and $46.2 million since September 30, 2017.  Bank management has concentrated much of its effort in growing deposits to support the rapid growth of the loan portfolio in 2018, as many banks contend with increased competition for funding.  At September 30, 2018, total deposit balances were $247.5 million, an increase of $22.9 million or 10%, over the same month last year.
