NEWS RELEASE

 

Wilshire Bancorp Reports Net Income of $18.6 Million or

$0.24 per Share for First Quarter 2015

 

LOS ANGELES, April 20, 2015 - Wilshire Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Wilshire Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $18.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.  This compares to net income of $13.1 million, or $0.17 per diluted common share, for the same period of the prior year, and net income of $16.1 million, or $0.20 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2014.

 

Jae Whan (J.W.) Yoo, President and CEO of Wilshire Bancorp, said, “Our first quarter performance was driven by strong, well-diversified loan production, stable expense levels and solid credit quality.  We had $398 million in loan originations in the quarter, with strong contributions coming from our commercial real estate, commercial, SBA, and warehouse lending businesses. We also had strong deposit inflows that resulted in non-interest bearing demand deposits increasing by $82 million during the quarter, with more than half of the increase coming from new deposit relationships.

 

“During the first quarter, we made excellent progress on two key strategic initiatives: building our residential mortgage lending business with the origination platform we acquired from Bank of Manhattan and expanding our ability to develop commercial banking relationships in the Southeastern United States with the opening of a new branch in LaGrange, Georgia.  We believe these initiatives will increase our production of residential mortgage and commercial and industrial loans, and help us build a stronger and more diversified franchise,” said Mr. Yoo.
