NEWS RELEASE

 

 

Wilshire Bancorp Reports Net Income of $13.2 Million or

$0.17 per Share for First Quarter 2016

 

LOS ANGELES, April 18, 2016 - Wilshire Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Wilshire Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $13.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. This compares to net income of $18.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share, for the same period of the prior year, and net income of $13.9 million, or $0.18 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2015.

 

Jae Whan (J.W.) Yoo, President and CEO of Wilshire Bancorp, said, “Following a very strong quarter of loan production to end 2015, we saw a lower level of loan demand across all of our business lines to start 2016. We believe this was primarily attributable to the first quarter typically being a seasonally slower period for loan production, as well as the impact of macroeconomic uncertainty that caused borrowers to be more cautious during the first two months of the year. However, market conditions appear to be improving, and we expect to see an increase in loan production as we move into the seasonally stronger periods of the year.”

 

“The pending merger of equals with BBCN Bancorp is proceeding as anticipated and we are looking forward to the opportunities to provide our customers with a superior banking experience as part of the only Super Regional Korean-American bank in the United States,” said Mr. Yoo.
