1st CENTURY BANCSHARES, INC. REPORTS FINANCIAL RESULTS

FOR THE QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2015

 

 

Los Angeles, CA (April 29, 2015) – 1st Century Bancshares, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:FCTY), the holding company for 1st Century Bank, N.A. (the “Bank”), today reported net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 of $315,000, compared to $402,000 for the same period last year. Pre-tax, pre-provision earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 was $711,000, compared to $712,000 for the same period last year. Included in net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 are gains in connection with the sale of securities of $75,000, compared to $253,000 for the same period last year.

 

Pre-tax, pre-provision earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure, is presented because management believes adjusting the Company’s results to exclude taxes and loan loss provisions provides stockholders with a useful metric for evaluating the profitability of the Company. A schedule reconciling our GAAP net income to pre-tax, pre-provision earnings is provided in the table below.

 

Alan I. Rothenberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “I’m pleased to announce our financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. We finished this quarter at a new record level of total assets, loans and deposits. Total assets exceeded $615 million at March 31, 2015, representing an increase of over 5% during the first three months of the year, while our loans and deposits grew by over 8% and 6%, respectively. Additionally, our net interest income improved to $5.0 million and our net interest margin increased to 3.46%. In addition, asset quality remains strong with total non-performing assets to total assets at 10 basis points at the end of the current quarter.”

 

Jason P. DiNapoli, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company, added, “The opening of our new Beverly Hills office contributed to the strong growth experienced this current quarter. The economic strength of the Westside of Los Angeles will provide further opportunities for 1st Century Bank.”

 

2015 1st Quarter Highlights

 

 

The Bank’s total risk-based capital ratio was 12.54% at March 31, 2015, compared to the requirement of 10.00% to generally be considered a “well capitalized” financial institution for regulatory purposes. The Bank’s equity is comprised solely of common stock and does not include any capital from trust preferred securities, convertible preferred stock or other equity or debt instruments.

 

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the Company recorded net income of $315,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to $402,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same period last year. The decline in net income during the three months ended March 31, 2015 as compared to the same period last year was primarily due to a $150,000 increase in provision for loan losses, a $178,000 decline in gains from the sale of securities, and a $540,000 increase in non-interest expenses. The increase in non-interest expense primarily related to increases in salaries and benefits and occupancy costs. These items were partially offset by an increase in net interest income of $674,000, primarily related to a $79.5 million increase in the average balance of loans during the current quarter as compared to the same period last year.

 

 

At March 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company’s book value per share was $6.15 and $5.85, respectively, representing an increase of 5.1%.

 

 

Net interest margin was 3.46% for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to 3.25% for the same period last year. The improvement in our net interest margin was primarily due to an increase in the average balance of loans relative to total earning assets as compared to the same period last year. During the quarter ended March 31, 2015 the average balance of loans relative to total earning assets was 77.3%, compared to 69.2% for the same period last year.
