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

Net income for the quarter was $310,000, a 7 percent increase compared with net income of $290,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

The bank achieved solid growth in gross loans and substantial deposit growth compared with the third quarter of last year, and showed continued strong credit quality.

“The bank continues to increase both loans and deposits, while maintaining a well-capitalized position and controlling operating expenses,” said Vince Siciliano, New Resource Bank president and CEO. “It’s particularly gratifying to note that clients who are aligned with our mission have played an important role in deposit growth.”

  • Loan growth: Loans outstanding grew 7.8 percent, to $147.7 million from $137 million a year ago.

  • Non-performing assets to total assets: Non-performing assets to total assets decreased from 1.62 percent to 0.81 percent.
  • Risk-based capital: Total risk-based capital ratio was 19.05 percent, a small rise from 18.93 percent at September 30, 2012.
  • Non-interest expense: Non-interest expense dropped slightly, from $1.87 million at September 30, 2012, to $1.85 million at September 30, 2013.
  • Efficiency ratio: The bank’s efficiency ratio for the quarter was 79.8 percent, versus 80.5 percent in the third quarter of 2012. 

“With the bank showing steady year-over-year growth in each of the past three quarters, we are well positioned as we plan for the future,” said Mark A. Finser, chairman of the New Resource board. “Our strategy is to grow the balance sheet efficiently while deepening our focus on our mission.”
