California BanCorp Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020

Oakland, Calif., October 29, 2020 – California BanCorp (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CALB), the parent company of California Bank of Commerce (the “Bank”), today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Net income was $495,000 for the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of $1.06 million or 68% compared to $1.55 million for the second quarter of 2020 and a decrease of $1.5 million or 75% compared to $2.0 million in the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net income was $2.5 million representing a decrease of $3.9 million or 61% compared to $6.4 million for the same period in 2019.

Diluted per share earnings of $0.06 for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $0.19 for the second quarter of 2020 and $0.25 in the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, diluted per share earnings of $0.31 compared to $0.80 for the same period in 2019.    

“Our third quarter performance reflects our success in the two primary areas of focus we have in building our franchise – maintaining a high quality loan portfolio that demonstrates resiliency in times of economic stress and strong execution on our strategies for generating organic balance sheet growth,” said Steven Shelton, President and CEO of California BanCorp. “The investments we have made in banking talent and technology are enabling us to present a compelling value proposition to middle-market commercial clients and consistently win business from larger national and regional banks. The new client relationships we added in the third quarter helped drive 17% annualized loan growth despite a decline in commercial line utilization among existing clients, as well as 15% annualized deposit growth. We have a healthy pipeline of new business development opportunities, which we believe will help drive continued quality balance sheet growth in the future and enable us to further leverage the investments we have made in our platform. As we continue to grow earning assets and generate improved operating efficiencies, we should be well positioned to deliver a higher level of earnings and returns going forward.”
