OptimumBank Holdings Announces Restatement of 2009 Year End Earnings

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimumBank Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPHC), holding company for OptimumBank, announced that the Company is restating its earnings for the quarterly and year to date periods ended December 31, 2009.  

As originally reported, the Company had a net after tax loss of $6,053,615 for the three months ended December 31, 2009 or $(1.85) per basic share. The restated loss for the three months ended December 31, 2009 will increase to approximately $9,055,656 or $(2.76) per basic share, compared to a net loss of $499,629 or $(.16) per basic share for the prior year quarter ended December 31, 2008.

Originally reported earnings for the year ended December 31, 2009 were a net after tax loss of $8,478,795 or $(2.59) per basic share. The restated loss for the year ended December 31, 2009 increased to a loss of $11,480,836 or $(3.50) per basic share, compared to net income of $519,645 or $.17 per basic share for the same period last year. 

President Richard L. Browdy noted, "The primary reasons for the restatement for the December 31, 2009 quarterly and year to date periods were a $1.3 million increase in the Company's provision for loan losses resulting primarily from management's receipt of additional information regarding the year-end loan portfolio during the first quarter of 2010, combined with a $1.6 million decrease in income tax benefits. The decrease in tax benefits resulted from management's reassessment of near term earnings trends and its determination that deferred tax assets originally reported may not be realized."

The Company originally reported capital ratios at December 31, 2009 as follows: Tier 1 Leverage ratio of 6.4%, Tier 1 Risk-Based ratio of 9.9%, and Total Risk-Based Capital ratio of 11.2%. The Company's restated capital ratios at December 31, 2009 are: Tier 1 Leverage ratio of 5.85%, Tier 1 Risk-Based ratio of 8.93%, and Total Risk-Based Capital ratio of 10.23%.
