New Resource Bank reports third quarter financial results

SAN FRANCISCO, October 28, 2011 — New Resource Bank (OTCBB: NWBN) has announced unaudited financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

The bank recorded its first operational profit: a net operating income of $196,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared with a net operating loss of $433,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Loans outstanding grew to $112.3 million, up from $95.8 million a year ago, a 17 percent increase. Deposits were $139.7 million, compared with $135.5 million at the quarter end in 2010.

“We are very pleased to report our first quarter of operational profit,” said President and CEO Vince Siciliano. “The bank has continued to grow its loan and deposit portfolio with mission-oriented companies that are managing for a social and environmental as well as a financial return.”

Total assets were $160.6 million at September 30, 2011, compared with $157.8 million at the corresponding quarter end in 2010.

New Resource Bank’s net interest margin expanded to 5.31 percent at the quarter ended September 30, 2011, from 4.14 percent at September 30, 2010.

The percent of nonperforming assets to total loans was 1.1 percent, down from 1.8 percent last year. That ratio compares favorably with the peer bank median of 3.64 percent as of June 30, 2011 (the most recent data available). There were no nonperforming loans as of September 30, 2011.

The bank’s total risk-based capital ratio was 15.8 percent at the quarter ended September 30, 2011, and the leverage ratio was 11.9 percent.

“New Resource Bank’s growing success has been a team effort involving staff, the board and supportive shareholders,” said Mark A. Finser, chairman of the New Resource board. “This quarter’s results reflect that effort as well as the power of the bank’s mission in a continued challenging economy.”
