Denver, Colo., January 28, 2021

– First Western Financial, Inc., (“First Western” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MYFW), today reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020.

Net income available to common shareholders was $4.9 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2020. This compares to $9.6 million, or $1.21 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2020, and $2.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Scott C. Wylie, CEO of First Western, commented, “Although we saw a seasonal decline in mortgage activity during the fourth quarter, we were still able to nearly double our earnings from the prior year due primarily to the strong balance sheet growth we generated in 2020, which resulted in a 64% year-over-year increase in our net interest income. We had another strong quarter of loan production and core deposit gathering, largely due to continued growth in commercial relationships.

“We also continued to see positive trends in asset quality, which reflects the strength of our borrowers and our conservative underwriting. Our total non-performing assets declined by approximately 60% from the end
