1st CENTURY BANCSHARES, INC. REPORTS FINANCIAL RESULTS

FOR THE QUARTER AND NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2015

 

 

Los Angeles, CA (October 28, 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 three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 of $854,000 and $1.7 million, respectively, compared to $626,000 and $1.8 million for the same periods last year. Pre-tax, pre-provision earnings for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $1.8 million and $4.0 million, respectively, compared to $1.1 million and $3.2 million for the same periods last year. Included in net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 are gains in connection with the sale of securities of none and $75,000, respectively, compared to $196,000 and $982,000 for the same periods last year, as well as provisions for loan losses of $300,000 and $1.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared to none and $100,000 for the same periods 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 of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “I’m pleased to announce our financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015. Since the beginning of this year, we’ve experienced significant growth in total assets, loans and deposits. As of September 30, 2015, total assets have grown to approximately $720 million, loans to approximately $549 million and deposits to approximately $638 million, representing growth rates of approximately 23%, 24% and 27%, respectively, during the first nine months of this year. Profitability trends also continue to improve, including a 28% increase in net interest income during the current quarter compared to the same period last year and an efficiency ratio of 71% for the current quarter. In addition, asset quality remains strong with total non-performing assets to total assets at 10 basis points at September 30, 2015.”

 

Jason P. DiNapoli, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company, added, “We are proudly one of the remaining community banks headquartered on the Westside of Los Angeles and we strongly believe that the growth we are experiencing this year is a direct result of our team’s hard work and dedication to delivering unparalleled service to our market.”
