RBB Bancorp Reports Third Quarter Earnings for 2017

 

Net income was $6.6 million or $0.42 diluted earnings per share

 

Total loans increased by $50.5 million, or 17.5% annualized growth, from the end of the prior quarter

 

Total deposits increased by $39.8 million, or 12.4% annualized growth, from the end of the prior quarter

Los Angeles, CA, October 23, 2017 –

RBB Bancorp (NASDAQ:RBB) and its subsidiaries, Royal Business Bank (“the Bank”) and RBB Asset Management Company (“RAM”), collectively referred to herein as “the Company”, announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

The Company reported net income of $6.6 million, or $0.42 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared to net income of $8.5 million, or $0.62 diluted earnings per share, and $5.7 million, or $0.43 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. The decline in earnings per share relative to the second quarter of 2017 was attributable to the recapture of $4.2 million of provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2017 that positively impacted the prior quarter’s results.

Mr. Alan Thian, Chairman, President and CEO of RBB Bancorp, commented on the results, “We executed well on our strategic plan in the third quarter and delivered strong financial results driven by quality balance sheet growth, higher gain on loan sale income, stable expenses and improvement in our asset quality.  Our loan pipeline remains strong and we expect to see a continuation of these positive trends going forward.  We are also on track to launch our Wealth Management business by the beginning of 2018.  We anticipate that Wealth Management will provide a stable source of non-interest income, further diversify our revenue mix, and serve as another catalyst for the continued growth of our franchise in the coming years.”

Key Performance Ratios

Net income of $6.6 million for the third quarter of 2017 produced an annualized return on average equity of 11.04% and an annualized return on average assets of 1.65%. The efficiency ratio for the third quarter of 2017 was 38.87%, compared to 40.44% for the prior quarter. Adjusted annualized return on average assets and average tangible common equity for the third quarter of 2017 was 1.55% and 11.97%, respectively compared to 1.10% and 11.06% for the third quarter of 2016.  A reconciliation of adjusted earnings to earnings according to generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) is provided in the financial tables at the end of this press release.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income, before provision for loan losses, was $14.7 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $14.0 million for the second quarter of 2017.  The increase was primarily attributable to a $94.5 million increase in average earning assets (mainly the result of proceeds from the Company’s July IPO), largely offset by an 11 basis point decrease in the net interest margin (which includes the impact of reduced loan discount accretion).
