New Resource Bank announces second quarter financial results

SAN FRANCISCO — New Resource Bank (OTCBB: NWBN) has announced unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

The bank reported a net operating loss of $642,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared with a loss of $2.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2009. Total assets were $176.6 million, compared with $174.8 million at the end of the second quarter of 2009.

Total deposits were $154.1 million, up from $151.4 million at the quarter-end last year. Gross loans were $94.9 million at June 30, 2010, down slightly from $95.4 million at the second quarter of 2009. However, the percentage of classified loans to total loans dropped substantially year over year, from 11.9 percent on June 30, 2009, to 5.4 percent at the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

“We have been able to maintain our total loan portfolio at roughly the same level while driving down classified loans,” said New Resource Bank President and CEO Vince Siciliano. “In the current economy, replacing problem loans with good loans is not an insignificant feat—and we’ve come a long way toward restoring our balance sheet.”

Total classified loans were reduced by over half year over year, with $5.1 million at the quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared with $11.4 million at the same quarter in 2009. The nonperforming loan total fell from $7.5 million at June 30, 2009 to $0.6 million (or $637,500) at June 30, 2010.

“In a time when many banks are still showing mounting losses and degradation of assets, we’re pleased that New Resource Bank took a conservative approach, faced its challenges in 2009, and is now headed in the right direction,” said New Resource Board Chairman Mark Finser.

The bank’s total risk-based capital ratio was 17.23 percent at the quarter ended June 30, 2010, and the leverage ratio was 11.68 percent. The bank’s net interest margin expanded to 4.09 percent at the quarter ended June 30, 2010, from 3.69 percent at June 30, 2009.

“We are continually improving our market position and bench strength,” said Siciliano. “We became a Certified B Corporation in June, which advances our sustainability mission. And we’ve improved our lending expertise as well, with the recent hiring of Robert Holden as senior vice president, commercial relationship manager.”
