Wilshire Bancorp Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End Results: Highlights Include
Fourth Quarter Net Income of $3.2 Million or $0.11 Per Common Share,
Strengthened Allowance for Loan Losses, and Improved Efficiency Ratio


LOS ANGELES, January 21, 2010 - Wilshire Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIBC), the holding company for Wilshire State Bank, today reported net income available to common shareholders of $3.2 million, or $0.11 per basic and diluted common share, for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2009. This compares to a net loss of $1.7 million or ($0.06) per basic and diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, and a profit of $5.0 million or $0.17 per basic and diluted share for the year-earlier fourth quarter.


“In spite of our continued steps in the fourth quarter to further improve the quality of our balance sheet by aggressively charging-off problem loans as well as increasing our allowance for loan losses, our core profitability remains strong due to our stable net interest margin and low efficiency ratio.  Total non-performing assets decreased from the third quarter of 2009, a large portion of which can be attributed to a decrease in non-accrual loans,” said Ms. Joanne Kim, President and CEO. She added “Overall, 2009 was a good year, and with the successful acquisition of Mirae Bank in the second quarter, we will continue to cautiously look ahead for other growth opportunities in the future.”


For the full fiscal year, the Company reported net income available to common shareholders of $16.5 million or $0.56 per basic and diluted share, compared to $26.3 million or $0.90 per basic and diluted common share for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008.

Total non-performing loans to gross loans and non-performing assets to total asset ratios decreased from 3.2% and 2.5% to 2.9% and 2.2%, respectively.

·                  Allowance for loan losses – The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total gross loans was strengthened to 2.56% for 4Q 2009, compared to 2.24% at 3Q 2009 and 1.43% at 4Q 2008.
