SAN FRANCISCO—New Resource Bank (OTCBB: NWBN) has announced unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Net income for the quarter was $466,000, compared with $371,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013—a 25.4 percent rise. Gross loans increased 26.8 percent year over year, from $137.8 million at June 30, 2013, to $174.7 million at June 30, 2014. The bank also realized record deposits of $205.5 million at June 30, 2014, a 20.1 percent rise from $171 million at June 30, 2013.

“The new high in deposits is based on both increased balances for existing customers and deposits from new customers, primarily businesses and nonprofits. We believe this is a clear reflection of the appeal of our mission,” said Vince Siciliano, New Resource Bank president and CEO. “The increase in gross loans is also notable, and continues a strong growth trend.”
