SAN FRANCISCO—New Resource Bank (OTCBB: NWBN) has announced unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Net income for the quarter was $371,000, compared with $205,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012—an increase of more than 80 percent.

The bank achieved solid growth in both gross loans and deposits compared with the second quarter last year, while continuing to show strong credit quality.

“The bank’s increased profitability is very encouraging and reflects our ongoing efforts in several key areas,” said Vince Siciliano, New Resource president and chief executive officer. “We’ve expanded our loan portfolio. We’ve improved our operating efficiency. And we’ve reduced the level of problem loans.”

Key financial results from the quarter included:

  • Loan growth: Loans outstanding grew 8.4 percent, to $137.8 million from $127.1 million a year ago.
  • Asset quality: Non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans dropped from 4.54 percent at June 30, 2012, to 1.42 percent at June 30, 2013.
  • Deposits: Deposits rose 9.7 percent, to $171.0 million from $155.9 million at June 30, 2012.
  • Total assets: Total assets increased 8.2 percent, to $200.1 million from $184.9 million at June 30, 2012.
  • Non-performing assets to total assets: Non-performing assets to total assets decreased from 3.67 percent to 0.98 percent.
  • Non-interest expense: Non-interest expense rose 3 percent, from $1.81 million at June 30, 2012, to $1.87 million at June 30, 2013.

“We think these results indicate that the bank has built some momentum and is making steady progress in reaching target markets,” said Mark A. Finser, chairman of the New Resource board. “We believe that our newest board members—Penelope Douglas and Esther Park, both of whom have extensive experience in lending to sustainable businesses—will be very helpful in efforts to maintain that progress,” he added.
